the dual life

FFfAW Challenge-Week of July 25, 2017


                                                     125th Challenge


                            

This week's photo prompt is provided by Louise with The Storyteller's Abode. Thank you Louise!




 She wore her smile and solitaries with élan and poise.  Her body language oozed 

confidence. She was the bulwark of a successful writer who readily shared the laurels 

with her. The flashlights went ga-ga over them. When the fourth estate questioned him 

about his realistic writing he credited it to the wife and Zamora.

Zamora was an idyllic island privately owned by him totally uninhabited save for a 

caretaker.

The working weekdays saw him sign deals with top corporate houses. His power lunches 

packed a punch.

She was a social butterfly and his literary agent handling his book promotions and 

releases. The proceeds from the book sales and royalty were under her scrutiny. Nothing 

missed her eye. She kept their domestic machinery well-oiled to run without a hitch. 

They were a perfect couple awed and envied by the hoi-polloi and media alike.

Every weekend he took the speedboat to the Zamora to release his literary passion to 

coalesce on paper. His grey cells worked overtime and so did his body.

                           The caretaker doubled as his mistress.
