Prompted by: Sam
The crazy author says: Umm, I got nothing haha!
Even though I know the answer, I have no other choice but to ask, “Do you trust me?”
“Yes,” she lies.
It rolls so easily off her tongue I think she actually believes herself. Even worse, I almost believe her too. I’m crossing into dangerous territory where returning isn’t an option. There’s no second-guessing. No escape route. No turning back.
It doesn’t matter.
I want her. I’ve wanted her for months. The constant ache in my heart and my head and my goddamn bones tells me I’ll always want her. Because she’s already mine. Ever since I laid eyes on her, she’s belonged to me and me alone.
I have absolutely zero fucks to give about anything else.
Her husband’s irrelevant.
His fate was sealed the moment he laid his hands on her. The instant his knuckles made contact with her skin…
He’s been a dead man walking.
I pull her close and wrap my arms around her waist with a groan, “Jules.”
Burying my face into her breasts, my voice is muffled, “Brady Lucas.”
She presses a kiss into my hair. “Who’s that?”
I take a deep breath, inhaling the woman into my lungs, and lean away to look up at her. Only then do I realize just how fucked I am.
Completely, utterly, hopelessly fucked.
All I can say is, “Me.”
What’s the prompt for next week, guys?

Oh we know his real name! Yay! I love knowing the characters names! And great flash fiction!
I can’t move, I’m hurt
Haha, Princess J! I’m not even sure I love his name (cuz you know I’m anal retentive about names) so he might have to go into witness protection or something. Just for the alias 😛
And thank youuuu!!!
I do know you’re very specific about names but I love that one!
Brady, it is then 😉
He was almost a Gabriel but I think he’s not nearly broody enough to pull it off LOL
I absolutely LOVE the name Gabriel!!
Me too! Gabriel Lucas has a nice ring to it. Perhaps a brother…
A nice brother! Sweet, and kind, and you can give him a girlfriend named Jane! Haha!
Uhhh, you missed the part where I said Gabriel was a broody name LOLOLLL
He’ll be the grumpy brother 😛
Nope didn’t miss it just giving you my order for what I’m wanting! He can’t be the grumpy one he has to be the sweet one because I like sweet! Haha!
But we can’t misname him 😛 The sweet, funny guy has to have a sweet, funny name…
Drew? Ew, no. Conner? Eh, nah. Yeah, I dunno haha!
Haha, okay Gabriel can be a little broody but its just to hide how sweet he is underneath, because yeah I don’t want a Drew or a Connor!
*axes all Drews and Conners from future name-age*
Done and done 😉
