A challenge has been issued by S.C. Mitchell: create a flash fiction of a romantic scene.

Salty air stung her eyes and the wind whipped her hair against her face. Though the sun was high overhead, the cold crept up the sleeves of her jacket, slapped her cheeks.

A thoughtful, attentive kind. Shauna smiled and squeezed Giovanni's hand tighter. The philosophy professor had brought her coffee, then lunches for two solid weeks before asking her out. She hadn't been surprised when he'd asked her for lunch but had felt a bit put out when he'd refused to tell her where he was taking her but it was oh so worth it.

Time to meet Leslie Hachtel who I can guarantee will have a fantastic romantic scene!
