F3, Week 47: Are You the One for Me?

blind

Prompt by Joyce Juzwik

You haven’t been active socially following a breakup months ago. A friend decides you’ve been on the shelf for far too long, and arranges for you to go on a blind date. Your friend tells you nothing about the person except where to meet, and you are given a code word to use for purposes of recognition. It’s all a bit cloak and dagger for your liking, but you know you’ll never hear the end of it if you don’t go, so you agree.

It’s hard to anticipate how a blind date will turn out. We want you to tell us all about yours.

Genre: Romance

Word Count: 1,500 or less

Deadline: Thursday, July 21, 2016

Post your story on your blog or website and provide a link to it in the comment section of this prompt.
