[30 Day Writing Challenge] Day 30

I’m so sad that I didn’t manage to update/post for 30 days straight for this challenge. But something came up on Thursday night that completely took my attention and it just slipped through my mind.

And then yesterday, the internet connection was so bad that I gave up and went to bed instead. So here is last entry to the 30 Day challenge.

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

Disclaimer: All of the characters are fictional. Any details that may be similar to a real person is entirely coincidental.


It was a quiet evening. They had been having more and more of them recently. He didn’t mind it though, spending time with Riley was always good in his book. He supposed they had been together long enough not to need things to do to fill the space between them.

It also helped that they had known each other for longer, that they were friends first. The companionship was definitely familiar and gave him more comfort than what he normally acknowledged.

They were not officially living together yet but he had definitely been spending more nights in Riley’s flat than his for the past month or so. He had actually taken to leaving a toothbrush at Riley’s place and a couple sets of spare clothes, just in case.

His own place was larger but Riley’s was closer to the city centre. He wondered when they would decide where to move in together. He wasn’t sure either if he preferred his place more or Riley’s.

May be they would find somewhere new together. His lease was coming up in 2 months anyway so may be that would be a good time to talk about things and decide.

He would cross that bridge when they got to it.

Dinner tonight was made by Riley. They didn’t really have ‘roles’ in the relationship. They both took turns cooking and doing the dishes. Though he was particularly more partial to doing the laundry and ironing than cleaning the flat.

He was also pretty sure that they both hated cleaning the bathroom so they would probably have to come up with some sort of rota for that once they had moved in together.

His body froze by the window once he realised what he was idly thinking.

(Another pro of Riley’s place was that he got a ridiculous view out the bedroom window. He liked to tease Riley that he stayed over because of the view more than anything else.)

Once they had moved in together.‘ Huh, not ‘if’ but ‘once‘ like it was certainty.

So even though he wasn’t sure where they would move in together, the moving-in-together was definitely going to happen. And what made him stop in his tracks wasn’t the fear that Riley wasn’t going to be on board with it.

If there was one thing he was certain, it was that Riley was as serious about their relationship as he was. If not more… He wouldn’t be surprised if Riley was already looking into the process of moving in together even though they hadn’t been together for a year yet.

He just had never realised up until this point that how sure he was in this relationship. And it was making him… happy. Really happy.

“C’mon Ashley, come to bed.” He turned around to see Riley taking off his shirt.

He wanted more nights like this. Just them together in bed, legs entwined under the soft duvet to keep them warm.

The silver dust of moonlight settled coldly on the night.


Day 30 —Write a short entry that ends with the line, “The silver dust of moonlight settled coldly on the night.”

Yay! It’s done! Hopefully the last line doesn’t clash with the fluff in the story. They are happy together even if it’s cold outside! Because they are cuddling under the blanket! I’m jealous! xD


I’m a bit sad that I didn’t manage to complete this challenge within 30 days but I am so glad that I’ve done it and that it’s now done! Even if it’s two days late but hey, better late than never!!

I’m not sure how long it’s going to be before I update the blog again… I’m not going to lie, I have been looking forward to not having to update the blog every day. But I’m hoping that I would be updating the blog more often.

It’s a Saturday! But I’ve been unsuccessfully trying to work but I really can’t procrastinate anymore and should get going with it. Urgh.

Hope your Saturday is going much better than mine!


With love,

From GZ


PS – I believe that this is my 68th entry which means that I have posted 34 blog posts this year already and it’s only the beginning of March! I only need to post one more entry before 1 January 2018 to hit my goal of updating my blog more often than last year! Whoo! xD


PPS – Also, anybody recognise where else have the characters in today’s challenge have come up before? 😉
