This was written for the Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Challenge:

Jeff juggled to keep his balance on the ice without dropping his wife.

“I told you to stick to the bunny hill,” he chastised.

She giggled and held her arms out like a bird in flight. “But it was so much fun- until I fell.”

“Well, let’s see if you still think it’s fun when you’re wearing a cast for the next six weeks.”

“Aw, Jeff, don’t spoil my high. Did you see me? I hit those moguls like a pro.”

“Yes, honey you did,” he said, tenderness running strong in his veins for his brave, incredible, beautiful wife.

    Written like a true romance novel queen, Jacquie! Love the concern, banter, and sprinkling of sexiness between the couple. Thanks for joining us at Carrot Ranch!
