What could I do? Firm, supple lips pressed to mine, fresh, minty breath. I flicked my tongue and invaded his mouth.

“Ma’m, just lie still. I’ve got you.”

Strong, square jaw, low, mellow timbre, delectable lips. Calm assurance.  My warped mind latched onto wide shoulders, the smell of man amped by fire. Fire? Eyes burning. Fire!

Dark smoke poured in when I opened my mouth to speak, memories toppling over one another, then coughing, confused. “You’re alone?”


Calm assurance nodded, swooped me up, satisfied. Air rushed from my lungs, his hand sliding along my ass. Are those…wings?

That was absolutely terrific debut flasher! You have allot going on in this wee 100 word pleasure. Multi-level, multiple dynamics and two totally juxtaposed mentalities concurrently at work. Smashing flasher, my dear. Loved the kissing and well, all of it up to and including the last line. I bet she thought she was in Heaven:) xo

Pablo Michaels said...

Beautifully written in the mood of the female character under the daze of smoke and fire. Sexually enchanting and mystically soothing. Loved this one.

Michaela Rhua said...

Really love this. The idea that she is in a daze almost then realises what is going on. Very lyrical!

Thanks for the many kind words! I'm so glad Doris let me in on this writing and reading treasure :-)Love the way we each got something different from the same pic.
