Dariel's Friday Flash Stop - "Forever Monsieur"



Cool pic, huh? Once again, my friends and I have gathered to offer our take on one pic - same pic, different interpretations, all 100 words. Click here to see my friends' flashes. Enjoy! 


  

Forever Monsieur

“What did I tell you, Love?” He whispers, bare chest against my back, and I erupt, molten lava overtaking every solid organ, every bone, but I mustn’t lean into him. Monsieur doesn’t like that.

I revert to my native tongue, my lust-dazed mind attempting a rough translation - Qu'est-ce que je vous dis, l'amour?
Ah! English. He wants me to always speak English while we are here, in the Americas.

He rips my gown away, leaving me entirely at his mercy.

“Here.” Monsieur hands me a hand mirror, his voice soothing.

“Fix your face. These tears mar your beauty, and you know I detest weakness. I will return when you are…prepared.”

I'm there.

Angelica Dawson said...

I wonder if she is happy with Monsieur or trapped.

Naomi said...

Wow! A flasher filled with fire, and full of excitement. I want more of the story. Love it

Michaela Rhua said...

Such harsh words from him. Would like more.

Muffy Wilson said...

Oh, I think she likes him a whole hellava lot. Wanting to lean into him to stoke her burning fires. Yep, she digs him in a real big way, and wants to please him. But, it begs the question then - why the tears? And why provoke him by speaking French when she knows he doesn't like that? Yet, not lean into him. Very cleverly excised piece. You leave with more questions than answers. Fabulous flash, missy. xo

Oh my, he is certainly intense! :-)

The AfterDark World with Ray Sostre said...

Damn, very dark and sensual. I was hooked from the start.

Julez S Morbius said...

Powerful flash. Is she happy?

Dariel Raye said...

Hey, Cora! I think I'm gonna play around with this one a little more, too. Angelica, let's say a little of both. Long story behind these two ;-)

Dariel Raye said...

Thanks, Naomi and Michaela! I'd like to write more about these two as well.

Dariel Raye said...

Muffy, you're a wise woman! She does like him a WHOLE helluva lot, and Doris, his intensity is one of the main things keeping her mesmerized :-)

Dariel Raye said...

Thanks, Ray! Glad you liked it. Your description confirms a goal reached. Julez, happy or not at the moment, she wants to be with him.

Oh wow! This gave me shivers. I hope she is not trapped but there of free will. Must know more of this short story. Great flash!
