[30 Day Writing Challenge] Day 14

As always, here is the list of all of the 30 day challenge I am doing at the moment.

Here is my entry for today’s prompt.



He has been working for a long time. Some may say that it has been too long but he has relatives who have been around longer.

Work has changed a lot these days, with technology and all. He has learned to embrace it and in some ways, it does make his work much easier. A few tabs on the phone and a job can be done.

They do not last this long if they do not adapt.

He does miss doing things the old fashion way though. So once in a while, he will wander around the city and see what he can do with the people he comes across.

Despite what many may think, February is not the busiest month for him. Work is actually pretty steady throughout the year. There are enough people around the world to even the numbers out in each month.

There is a traditions he has started quite recently. (It has been nearly 4 decades long, but when you are as old as he is, 40 years is a blink of an eye.)

No matter where he is, he will make it to Memphis on this day every year. There wouldn’t be a particular place to visit, he just likes to walk around and soaks up the atmosphere.

Of course the cities have changed, but somehow, he can always remember clearly what it was like back then.

Elvis was handsome, there was no doubt. His rise to fame was unplanned but he welcomed it. He has met the singer many times through out Elvis’s life. Sometimes as a spectator, and others, well, he can never resist a temptation.

There are not that many mortals whose voice has managed to capture his attention, let alone captivating enough to keep him coming back for more. Before he knew it, he has been paying a visit to Elvis every single year on the same date, no matter where the singer might be.

That habit has not changed yet even though Elvis is no longer alive. He supposes he can visit the singer himself in the Underworld but there is something right about being in the living world while remembering about the famous King of Rock and Roll. Walking around in Memphis is enough. And if he hums to himself, well, it is nobody else’s business.

Elvis Presley, the man that has made his job easier and harder at the same time. During the years that the singer was alive and popular, he encountered countless women and men in his work.

Many fell in love with the voice, others at the face. Some, fell for the moves, while numerous others fell for the whole package.

Humans can form connections over shared passion too. Legions of relationships were formed because of Elvis, ergo innumerable jobs accomplished. He has his hands full for quite a while.

He liked that challenge though. He is not Eros, the god of love, for nothing. Or as many may know him better by his Roman twin, Cupid.


Day 14 —Elvis still gets 100 Valentines each year.  Tell about one of the people who sent one.

This one nearly didn’t come out! I’m glad it’s finished and I am actually losing sleep because of this challenge. Urgh. Not giving now!!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! This entry kind of fits with the them, innit? xD


With love,

From GZ
