The Crush (Trifecta)

Trudy was supposed to be studying, as the stacked books evidenced. But the pretty words she poured down the page had nothing to do with physics.

These days she was fascinated with chemistry.




On to this week’s Trifextra challenge. This week we’re asking for 33 of your own words inspired by the following picture. If you use the picture on your blog, you MUST give proper attribution to the photographer by providing a link to the photo, not just to Trifecta. Failure to comply will eliminate you from the challenge.

  7. When I was in college, I studied in the smoking lounge in hopes that a certain bad boy would show up. I can still feel my heart flutter in anticipation;)

    What a lovely distraction you’ve written, sweet girl:)

  8. LOVE it. I love the distinction between physics as homework and CHEMISTRY that has nothing to do with what she might be studying in school. XO

  9. Physics between a love interest? A love poem being written? This is pretty.
