I don’t think I’ll ever be able to thank Priceless Joy enough for hosting Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers (75 – 175 words) and Etol Bagam for providing the inspiring photo prompt this week. If you haven’t heard of or joined this challenge, please do yourself a favor and check out PJ’s blog for more details and entertaining entries. You won’t regret it.
Now enjoy the story:
One sip won’t hurt.
Yeah, then why was my apartment filled with bodies? I told them to pace themselves.
Now it was just me picking up trash and her. Ex-girlfriend Penny. She was swaying to whatever song was still playing in her head before she stumbled and collapsed on my couch.
As our drunken friends created a chorus with their snores, she smiled up at me and patted the cushion beside her. I shook my head, trying not to stare at the skirt riding up her thigh.
“You’ve been avoiding me.” She got up and wavered.
I dropped the garbage bag and nudged her forehead to make her fall back down on the couch. Never expected her to pull me down with her and swallow my gasp.
Dragging fingertips, greedy nips. I shouldn’t.
Grabbing her thigh, moving her necklace aside with my tongue. More.
Come morning, I scrambled around, yanking on my clothes. I put her back in her clothes, too. I had to before everyone woke up from the dead and caught us.
God! What was I going to say to her?
(Btw, this was part 2 to a past entry: Penny Needed a Ride)
