The 3 Effs

Disease? I suppose you could call it thatbut I would say that it's more of a gift really. To stand among so many and affect lives this way, yes, I'll say gift.

I hear the whispers, feel the derision, and know the scorn you feel when I brush past you. You're glad you've been spared when I accept your dismissal.

You fear exposure to me and keep me as far away as you can but now and then, I get close enough to make your heart race.

I might keep you from crossing that line, from going too far, or I might just keep you awake a little bit longer tonight. That's the nature of my gift, your disease. Shame.

I have a natural immunity, so do your thing elsewhere...an interesting twist anyway. Good FF.

pw - as luck, not shame, would have it, I was running down the list to see who else had done theirs and was on your blog trying to figure out which of your links to click...

Hey, thanks sweet trini, that's er, sweet! Very kind of you to say. And now that I'm home, I want to go and read everyone else's ideas.

Thanks to all of you for the feedback.

I'm heading out for a long weekend so I guess I'll miss today's literary excursion but will be checking to see what brilliance ye have wrought on my return.
