Tuesday Tales – Picture Prompt Champagne Glasses


Welcome to this weeks Tuesday Tales - Picture Prompt. I'm sharing with you a scene that didn't make the cut in my novel "The Boardwalk."





Mario held a bottle of Dom Perignon and two champagne glasses. He set them down on the glass picnic table before embracing Brooklyn. Turning the night into a special occasion had been his top priority.

The first time he spotted her in her Nike shorts and tank top with sweat dripping down her forehead, he knew he had met the love of his life. She was different from the other spectators who stopped to listen to his horrific signing and guitar playing.
Their first kiss was still embedded on his lips. Whenever she was around he couldn’t stop smiling.

Brooklyn lifted the bottle of champagne and smiled. “What’s the occasion?”

“You.”

“Me?” she point to herself.

He lifted the bottle and popped it open with the champagne running down the side. “Yes you. Only the best for you.”

Brooklyn dropped her eyes down to the floor and blushed. He loved when he made her blush. It always put her into a sensuous mood.

While he poured the champagne into the glasses, Brooklyn worked fast cleaning the champagne, which had fallen onto the glass table.

Lifting both glasses he handed her one and raised his up. Brooklyn followed the lead with her glass only inches from his.

“I’d like to make a toast to thank you for taking a chance with me.”

“Sometimes all it takes is an open hear and an open heart.”

They clicked champagne glasses. “To us.”



After an accident at work, Brooklyn DeMelli walks every day down at the boardwalk as a way to keep active and have a semi normal social life. She meets up with the regular morning walkers, while enjoying the beauty of the beach and the scent of the ocean. To keep busy she started her own company, making beaded jewelry for parties and flea markets.

Mario Morales is the hippy that plays acoustic guitar every morning at different ends of the boardwalk. The music captivates Brooklyn. Following the muse, she meets Mario who turns out to be a narcotics detective working undercover on a huge investigation. When Mario finds out Brooklyn is inadvertently involved in a drug trafficking ring, it leads to a series of events, which puts Brooklyn’s life in jeopardy, while forming a romantic bond between them.
