A to Z Challenge { A }



We interrupt the regularly scheduled blog posts for April's A to Z Challenge!
I'm testing my writing skills with fiction.
These may consist of an opening paragraph, or might even end up as an entire short-story.
I have no idea where my fingers and keyboard will take me
as I'm inspired with each day's corresponding letter.
Take the journey with me!
I look forward to your feedback.

Today's letter:  A


Adele, with her auricomous locks, ambled down the alameda while allowing her eyes to admire the azure anemones which seemed all-encompassing as she advanced at an abated pace to an appointment with the family administrator who held her future in his aging hands. With an acre-breadth left until her arrival, Adele could almost view the ancestral statue atop the acropodium. She continued walking in her anicular fashion, pulling her aerophanous shawl around her arms. The air seemed Autumnal though it was a bright aestival day.


Special thanks to Noah Webster and his Unabridged Dictionary for providing the "A" Words
