Island Surprise Continues


Welcome to my blog. Today's Tuesday Tale word prompt is wine.


On the last night of the conference, after missing most of the activities, Claire and Nancy decided to make an appearance at the cocktail party. Sam didn’t want to leave them alone, but had promised to meet his agent for dinner.

As they got in the elevator Nancy put her card key in her purse. “I don’t know if we should be doing this. Sam said we should just hang out in the room tonight until we’re sure they’ve taken Dan and Lacy in for questioning.”

“I know, but I don’t think we’ll be in danger at the cocktail party. They’ll be plenty of people there, I doubt if they’ll try anything in such a large crowd. I just want to see some people and have a drink with some of the girls.”

They got off the elevator at the lobby, and walked to the main ballroom. Tables were set up outside the ballroom, with salad and hot food and waiters crisscrossing the floor with trays of hot hors d’oeuvres. They walked over to the bar line. “I’ll have a red wine, thank you,” Claire said to the bartender. 

Claire noticed a bottle of wine with a bright orange label, and she recognized it immediately. It was the same type of wine bottle, and brightly colored label that was on the table at the small island, when she saw Dan, with the blood his shirt. Her arms tingled and a chill ran through her body. 

The vision of what she saw on the island appeared in her mind once again, as she brought the glass of wine to her lips and took a sip.

  1. Intriguing scene. I like the way you worked the glass of wine into it. Is Claire psychic or having a flashback?

  2. I love how the girls go out and take a chance. It's also interesting the way you tied in the Island and the bar with the same bottle of wine.

  4. Oohh, I got a little scared. Is the same wine bottle a memory trigger or was there something in the wine. You haven't told us and I'm wondering. This is such a great story!
