Prompted by: AnRo
The crazy author says: I’m having mad withdrawals now that Slim & Izzy are done. No joke. So to NOT make myself feel any better cuz apparently, I enjoy self-inflicted torture, I’m taking a perfectly angsty prompt and turning it into a cute and fluffy little romance scene for ya…
I frown at the Heineken. Disgusting turpentine-type shit right there. “I didn’t order this.”
The bartender smirks and walks away without a word.
“No, I did.”
I shiver at the deep, rumbly, fuck-me-now voice and stare down at my Vodka Martini. Shaken, not stirred. Classy James Bond-type shit right here. “I don’t drink beer.”
“It’s not for you.”
Okay, fine, I’ll bite. “Who’s it for?”
“Me.” He grabs the bottle and takes a swig. “You have a great ass, by the way.”
I try to hold back a grin. I can’t. “That stuff tastes awful.”
“It really does,” another swig, “and you really do.”
Okay, fine, I’ll play along. Might as well since I’m already blushing. Given, it could be the alcohol. “Is that all you noticed?”
“Of course not,” he chuckles. “Only the first thing.”
Yeah, I bet.
“But ass aside, you’re still jaw-droppingly gorgeous.”
It isn’t the alcohol. I’m definitely blushing. Did he actually just say that? “You’re not too bad yourself.”
“Not too bad, huh?”
“How would you know?” he chuckles again.
The sound is even sexier than his voice and damned if my toes don’t curl.
“You haven’t looked at me yet.”
I take a sip of liquid courage. I need it to calm my nerves before confessing, “I’ve been looking all night.”
He’s quiet for a moment.
Is he surprised? Because he shouldn’t be.
I take another sip. I’ll need a refill soon. “I like what I see.”
“What do you like?”
Biting my lip, I reply in a single breath, “The muscles and the tats and the really sexy smile.”
“Is that all you noticed?”
“Of course not.”
“What was the first thing?” he asks.
“Your eyes,” I answer. It’s the truth.
“And the second?”
“Your wheelchair.” Also the truth.
He goes quiet once more.
Is he worried? Because he shouldn’t be.
“Does it bother you?”
I finally pivot around on my barstool. Well, damn, he’s even sexier up close. I meet those insanely blue eyes and smile. “What do you think?”
He smiles back, complete with panty-melting dimples. “I’m guessing not.”
What’s the prompt for next week, guys?

Ugh, Lady Ember…
This was so freakin’ cutesy I may have thrown up in my mouth a bit 😛 For reals, though, glad you enjoyed our departure to the light(er) side LOL
And dig the prompt! Thank youuu!!
hahaha! You are definitely toeing the line! 😛 Yes I did enjoy it tho! LOL!
The line scares me…
Oh, warm and fuzzies…yes!!! And don’t worry, I know you’re not staying on the Light Side for long.
Prompt: Don’t beg.
LOL Maybe just a few weeks until my soul longs to go home 😉
Ahh, great prompts too! Thank youuu!!!
click, click, bang!
It felt too good
Sorry, kinda threw a few out there for you to choose from…or not, lol
Ahhh, Miss Minx!!
Welcome to our little game! Many, many thanks for the many prompts!! And don’t be sorry. More is always better 😉
That was seriously awwww…
A pierced penis?
Thank you, Miss Jane!
And thank youuu for the hilariously awesome prompt, as always!!
Ok, see now I loved this! Rainbows and unicorns and happy fluffy stories are my jam! Maybe this one will have to be continued too?? 😂 Fat chance. I know.
Dear Miss Beth,
I’ve received your feedback and am happy to inform you that your wish is my command.
P.S. Probably just for a few weeks, though 😛
Oooh, good. Like my gooey, gooey ones. Of course, some angst. Love this.
For next flash this:
Underneath and overdone
HA, Miss Angel!
Thank you oodles for the awesome prompt!! Sooo many options… Tee hee.
Yes, I can see why you said things got a little sappy here. Thank God for the smutty talk and the wheelchair-bound beau stuff! That certainly added some of your usual grit. 🙂
Which puts me in mind of a possible story-angle. Would you ever consider doing a “wounded hero” who had cybernetic implants? I mean, we’re actually scratching the surface of that right now. Not long before seamlessly integrated electronic limbs become commonplace.
Gotta have some smut if we’re going for syrupy sweet, eh? 😉
Yep, I’ve actually written heroes sporting cybernetic limbs before. Nothing that ever developed into more than a few scenes but I totally would consider a legit story in the future. And yep, current tech is already on the cusp of Armitage III type-stuff. I’ve watched some crazy amazing Ted Talks about this. Anyhoo…
Gonna PM you instead haha!
That was so cute! I love these two!
Thank you kindly, Miss Tiara!!
So glad you dig these two lustbirds cuz it looks like they’ll survive for a few more weeks LOL
Loved it. As per usual!!!
What are you talking about?
A little goes a long way…
Don’t make me beg
You’re too sweet, Miss AnRo!

Great Flash Fiction, Annie!
The truck sat idling outside…
Ah, Miss Amber Laura!
Thank you and thank you for the prompt too!! 😀
