    There are so many interesting prompts that I have also read at the list of Earl Wynn's 101 writing prompts. Thank you for sharing these responses of yours to his prompts Rosina! Earl got a lot of ideas when it comes to writing prompts and I love how flexible and unique the ideas are. It is really just up to your muse and creativity how you'll respond to these prompts and how you'll present it to the hubbers.

    Thank you Misbah for posting this here.

    Blessings to all of you.

    Thanks Misbah for sharing Rosina's short story.  That threatening phone call after coming home from a honeymoon would have been a shock.  The blackmailer must have thought they had access to that kind of money.  Glad it all worked out.

      Yes, it was a shock for Sebastian who got the blackmailer's sinister phone call. He had no idea and couldn't figure out where he had come from. Thankfully, his detective friend solved the case for them. Thank you for reading and commenting, Peggy.

    This is an interesting story that grabs our attention once he gets that phone call.
    I might have started out the story with the phone call, but the story itself is great.
    It flows, it is suspenseful...I love it.

    It even leaves us with a lesson...
    Put your troubles in the hands of God.   He will fight your battles.

    I'm glad this story turned out happily for the couple & that he said a little prayer to God for help.
    Great write.
