It’s time for some Romance Weekly, #LoveWriteChate fun! If you’ve wandered over from Gemma Brocato‘s blog, welcome! This week’s challenge came from Susan Peterson Wisnewski, a 100-150 word flash fiction piece using the words: candle, chocolate and scarf. Naturally, I turned it over to my alter ego Xio Nin for the honours.
“Open your mouth.”
The warm chocolate of his voice slid over my skin like a living thing. My trembling lips parted as I obeyed. “Good girl.” Something cool touched my tongue.
Juice dripped down my chin as I bit into the soft flesh of my reward. A low rumble of a growl met my ears. I felt him lean in and cursed the silk scarf he had gently blindfolded me with when we began this little game. I wanted to see him.
Wanted to know if his desire mirrored my own.
No need to ask. He captured my mouth in a kiss that stole my breath, answering any unspoken questions. The fabric was lifted way, my eyes adjusting quickly to the soft glow of the candle by our bed.
I blinked up into his heat-filled gaze. “Are we done playing?”
His generous mouth slid into a smile. “Not by half.”
Do you need to take a moment? I sure do. When you’ve recovered, head on over to read what the ever-delightful Susan Scott Shelley came up with for today’s challenge. I met Susan at this year’s RWA, and she is so very cool and so very sweet!
See you next week!
