It is the first day of the Deadly Seven Challenge and I am starting it off with my 100 word flash fiction of LUST.
Her lower lip plumps out like a ripe offering as she stares ahead in my direction. The cloth around her curves strains against its bonds and I can imagine the threads breaking to let me in. Deep chestnut-on-a-sunny-day hair grazes over her flush skin brightening as I devour her every movement with my eyes. She takes a sip of her steaming coffee and my throat grows dry with thirst. An Insatiable longing to steal the moisture from that greedy tongue; she knows. I pluck a loose string from her sleeve, “You’re coming undone,” I inform her of our future.
(100 words exactly, including the title word: Lust)
I couldnt decide which flash fiction to choose so I will post both of them:
“You’ve changed me, Micha,” she pushes her hands to her stomach dragging them up her sides and across her chest. Tossing her fingers into her hair she tugs at the strands in an act of restraint, “I’ll be going to Earth soon.”
“How?” His eyes soften and he flexes his fingers as if grabbing for something.
“I’ll fall.” Her hand presses into the floor that gives way like thin elastic, just about ready to break. She smiles up at him eagerly, “Will you join me?”
The side of his mouth curves up at the offer.
To fall… He wonders.
The second flash for Lust is from my current story I am working on called , Torn, I’ve posted a few chapters of it on http://www.bookcountry.com But this passage just seemed to fit the sin so I have included it. Fallen Angels, poor birds.
It isn’t too late to participate in the Flash Fiction Challenge, Comment below with your 100 word flash fiction of LUST or comment with a link to your blog and stay tuned for tomorrow’s Flash of GLUTTONY.
Seven Sins, Seven Stories, Seven Days!
GLUTTONY sneak peek: “You’re unhealthy, tart, and dangerous. It’s what I love about you.”
Some part of me still wants to make a Gluttony part 2 that includes the words, “OHM NOM NOM” What do you think?
