This week’s writing challenge was a choice of two equally lovely photos, thank you, Nightlake. Difficult to choose from between the two of them. So I incorporated both in the following story.

Waking to the rushing sounds of the ocean’s tide, Lily felt an overwhelming need to rise, explore her gorgeous surroundings. Beginning with the beautiful plants located just outside.
She stood on the patio her hand on the flowering plant, her gaze on the serene ocean. She shed a single tear, swiping it away with the back of her hand.
He had picked this very cabana, the one with the peace lily plants. He thought it a special touch, her name being Lily. Now, although she admired the beauty of the plant, peaceful did not match her feelings.
What should have been an idyllic romantic getaway was the unfortunate reality of a vacation spent alone.
“That’s okay,” She decided. “These things happen!” Lily was glad she’d chosen to come anyway. The change in plans weren’t his fault, his having to work.
The front door of the cabana opened. Hearing the laughter of his deep voice her heart sang with joy. Her decision to come now worth it. She wondered how he’d known?
She glanced affectionately at the peace lily and turned to greet him, her eyes filled with adoration and love.
He was not alone.
