Tuesday Tales- The Shoe Prompt

This week, the word prompt for Tuesday Tales is shoe. Remember to click the link to check out the other entries. I’m still working away on my murder mystery set on a luxury train in pre WWII Europe. Badge for TT - very small

Win kept walking, opened the door and entered the corridor. Under his breath, he muttered, “Great. Trapped on seventy tons of steel with an obnoxious American who doesn’t seem to have any manners at all.”

“Excuse me sir, did you need something?” A passing steward asked.

Win did a double take, recognized the young man and said, “No thank you, Lucien. I’m talking to myself. A bad habit, I’m afraid.”

“I understand sir. If you need me, just ring. I’m on duty for a little longer and then Remy will be on.”

“Thank you.” Arriving at his door, Win inserted his key and entered. He flopped down on the made up bed, loosened his tie and kicked off his shoes. What a long trip it was going to be if he had to avoid the American.

He glanced around the room. Cordelia must have spoken to Lucien about making the beds separately since they weren’t pushed together.


  1. You’ve caught my interest with this scene.

  2. another interesting post …. look forward to reading next week’s

  3. Great scene!

  4. I’m very intrigued. I want to know more about the American and why he’s avoiding him.

  5. Yeah, I want to hear just how obnoxious the American is and the story as to why the beds are separate…I have been corrupted by Romance Writers!

  6. After the last scene this makes the story even more intriguing

  7. I am really loving this story. Why aren’t the beds together? Getting a little bit at a time – I can’t wait for next week!

    • Thanks Tricia. I’m having fun dribbling it out there.

  8. Can’t wait to see what comes next.

    • Thanks Sellery2010. I’m not sure how I’m going to use the next prompt for this story.
