CW: Chisel.

“In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes a chisel.”
– a prompt for this week’s CW piece.


His black,

luscious hair

was styled to perfection.

A stray lock,

gently hanging

off the side of his forehead

added to his “good bad boy” attitude.

The piercing blue eyes

beckoned to me,

causing me to almost get lost in the moment.

The face chiseled.


with pronounced cheekbones

and dimples.

I kept analyzing him further.

Broad shoulders.

Sculpted arms.

Visible pecks.

An impeccable six-pack.

An ideal specimen.

Could be Praxiteles’ muse.

“There’s pressure on men, too…

You know?

Not only women need to look a certain way.” –

I said with contempt,

As I put the glossy magazine away.

            1. Hey Goldie, my husband would say that that is absolutely not true since he’s considerate and smart yet still handsome with a nice body. 😂

              True story – When my husband was in his 20s is friends used to tell him that he’s too good looking to be so nice. They often told him that he could be an asshole to girls (the ones he dated) and get away with it because he’s so handsome. Can you believe it?!
