Go see Charli Mills over at Carrot Ranch Communications for this week’s challenge:
January 26, 2017 prompt:
In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story using the theme, “women create.” It can be art, sewing, ideas, babies. What is at the heart of women as creators? Go where the prompt takes you.
Respond by January 31, 2017 to be included in the compilation (published February 1). Rules are here. All writers are welcome!

Wearing nothing but a smile and an apron, she lay the plate before him.
In the flickering light it looked intriguing.
He took a bite. Grimaced. Spat it out.
She bolted like a scared rabbit.
‘I’m sorry,’ she blurted. ‘I can’t cook!’
‘I know’ he said, ‘but you sure are creative in disguising it!’
