Dariel's World

Hi. I'm Dariel Raye, an interracial/multi-cultural paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and action suspense author, and every day of this journey is a learning experience. I'm also a counselor, musician, and animal lover. My stories are about all-conquering love and romance, and I enjoy hosting other authors as well. Enter a world where werewolves, vampires, multi-shifters, vamp-like Nephilim, Vodouin Fey, and all things paranormal capture our hearts...

Dariel's Flasher Friday Stop: "Perfect Relationship"



Every Friday, several of us get together and write a post using the same pic chosen by our facilitators - 100 words, no more, no less. Check out my take on this intriguing pic, then stop by to see my friends' posts as well. Feel free to leave a comment. We love to hear from you :-)



Perfect Relationship
“I’ve had it with you!” I offer her my profile, a single tear, refusing to look her way.
 “I yell, whisper softly, even speak through your dreams, but I'm ignored, even then.”

She’s staring at me now. 

I continue. “No matter what I do, it never seems as important as your errands, the mundane, even social media. You waste our time running in circles.”

“What do you want me to do?” she says, whining.

 “Ass in chair! Fingers on keyboard! Write, dammit! I’m your muse, not a fucking inspirational speaker!”

Tap, tap, tap.


Inwardly, I chuckle. Works every time.

The Unforgettable Lovers Book Party continues tomorrow with Beth Trissel, Chantel Rhondeau, and Jessica Nicholls, so stop by to win a free book of your choice from those featured in the event!!

Love this flash. I think my muse needs to get tough on me too!

Muffy Wilson said...

Are you sure your muse isn't a drill Sargent?? Very clever, very entertaining. Scorchingly TRUE!!! xo

Doris O'connor said...

Oh that is so clever. Love this take :-)

Angelica Dawson said...

Haha. Sounds just about right.

Dariel Raye said...

Yep, the coddling kind don't work for me. She and I get along pretty well. She can be understanding too, but not for long. LOL

Brilliant flash

I want to borrow your Muse. Love your take on the picture

Dariel Raye said...

Naomi, I'll ask her to go easy on you at first. Sometimes she makes me write in lieu of sleep!

Rolling Muse in The Roses said...

Can you send your muse my way? lol I loved this take on the picture. Great way to create a demanding pushy muse. :) Great flash!

Dariel Raye said...

Rolling Muse in the Roses, I doubt your muse will like her very much, but she likes your name, though ;-)
