This week’s photo prompt from Madison Woods Friday Fictioneers came from Susan Wenzel. I had to do some research to come up with this though I can’t vouch for the accuracy of my efforts! 🙂
“They say pearls are moonlight-filled dewdrops swallowed by oysters.”
“It’s not from the Ostreidae family, Becky. It’s just some common bivalve type, maybe Argopecten gibbus, or even Leavicarium laevigatum.”
“Others say they’re the tears of the Gods.”
“It’s not an oyster shell, Becky, note the pallial sinus. It’s porcellaneous not nacreous.”
Becky stood up.
“Shall we go sit beneath the stars, Eugene, drink champagne, eat strawberries?”
“This is your hormones playing up again, right?”
Two figures stomped off into the twilight, yards apart.
