Friday Fictioneers-Is She Worth It?


Copyright-Dawn M. Miller

Damon’s fingers tap the display case as the saleswoman waits expectantly.  He’s never had such trouble buying jewelry before. Why is it so difficult for such an incomplex woman as Rhiannon?

He beams at a memory of her. Dirty bare feet, flowers in her hair, while seated on a blanket in their backyard.

What’s her favorite gemstone?

Blue Topaz.

Those are junk. What about Sapphires?

She’d tell me I spent too much.

Is she worth it?

More than she’ll ever know.

After careful consideration, Damon makes his purchase. A sapphire ring. For the third finger of her left hand.

    • Hi Ron,

      Where do you think I got the name from? I’ve written about Damon and Rhiannon before. They are two of my favorite characters. I think they have a good future together. I do believe that Rhiannon loves to love Damon. I think they changed each others lives for the better.

      Love, Renee

    • Thanks Jan. I’m happy you could feel their love. I could feel it as I wrote it. There’s a problem if we writers can’t ‘feel’ the stories we pen.

      Love, Renee

  1. I like this very much. It’s kind of the opposite of mine: the woman who knows that money isn’t the measure of love and the man who wants to spend more on her. Sounds like a good woman.

  2. Dear Renee,

    Sapphire is my birthstone. Just thought I’d throw that in. 😉 You painted a lovely picture of Rhiannon in few words. Only one note (and you expect this from me, right?)
    “His smile beamed…” took me out. It feels awkward and somewhat disembodied. “He beamed” maybe?
    Nonetheless, this was a beautiful piece from a beautiful soul.



    • Dear Rochelle,

      You’re a September baby? Why am I not surprised? All the best people are. 🙂

      I’ve written about Damon and Rhiannon before. They are two of my favorite characters. I think they have a good future together. We’ll see what other stories I come up with about them.

      I’ll see what I can do about that sentence. His aura illuminated? I want his body to ‘pop’ when he thinks of her. 🙂

      Thanks for the compliment on the story. You know your words always mean the world to me…..

      Love, Renee

  3. Dear Renee
    I made it!!
    I love your tender love story.
    In such few words you bring the lovers to life. Sapphires are my most favourite gemstone, especially the deep blue ones, so I am doubly happy that Damon bought one for Rhiannon.

    Love Dee x

    • Hi there Ms. Dee,

      So glad to see you. 🙂 I’m so happy you made it and that you can feel the lover’s story just like I did. Damon loves Rhiannon without measure. She’ll wear his ring, but I don’t think she’ll ever say ‘I do’.

      Love, Renee
