3 For Thursday Week 6 Prompt 3 - NaNoWriMovember Edition

3 For Thursday - NaNoWriMovember Edition
Week 6 Prompt #3
Writin', with a Stache!

Sorry, but you had to have seen this coming…

The Phrase Prompt (thanks to The Police who are as 80s as Tom Selleck's Mustache!) was
~~every breath (someone/thing) take~~

This weeks SPECIAL PROMPT was a "style" provided by last weeks winner:
~~The Story is the character's last letter or to someone special~~
Because it is NaNoWriMo I would encourage you to make this prompt part of your NaNoWriMo story if you can (more leeway will be given if this is the case).  If it is, put NaNo at the top of your post along with the title of your project! 
If it's not for NaNo just include your story title. 

    Contest Starts at Noon eastern time
    Contest Ends at 1:00 (for the Speed Challenge and for part two of your story for the Blind Challenge)
    You have one hour to write 100 words including this phrase.
    Next Contest Starts at 1:00 with a word prompt!

    1. Okay, I'm a dumba** ... I totally did not see the prompt for the 2nd part. I thought it was still the same as the 1st. Sooooo, my entry is definitely disqualified. Oye.

    2. Title: His Beloved (Blind)

      I’m surprised how much your absence affects me and what a difference it’s made now that you aren’t here. My house is so clean it sparkles and the stench of unwashed canine and dog shit is gone when I walk through the door. I don’t find random hairs woven into my mustache; my couch is free of the fur that works its way into all my good dress pants. I’m breathing easily for the first time in years and your decision to stay home longer warms my heart. I’m sure your parents are thrilled. I know I am.

      Sincerely, Kurt

    3. NaNo - Blind
      Gone But Not Forgotten

      A knock on the door followed by a garbled voice saying something that could be mistaken for "room service" interrupted my pity party.

      "Wrong room," I hollered.

      A firmer knock rattled the door.

      "Okay, fine."

      I grabbed my Sig from the nightstand, holding it at the small of my back. Cracking the door, I eyed the tall man rocking mirrored sunglasses and a mustache that Magnum P.I. would envy.

      "Can I help you?"

      He lowered the shades, revealing laughing blue eyes.

      "Kelly, I'm wounded," he said in a heavenly English baritone. "You've forgotten me already?"


      "In the flesh, beautiful."
