Aroused :: A Drabble

This is getting tough. Rather, this is getting tougher.

I started with Drabble Fridays, because I was way impressed by Stevil’s work, and I wanted to see if I could curb my chattiness to 100 words. My first one or two attempts were fun, so I started taking part in flash fiction challenges.

Well, the flash seems to have hit the wall, or something. Writer’s block is crashing down on me. I applaud every single person who is able to create a work of fiction on a daily basis.

All that said, I’m still here for another go at a drabble – a work of fiction consisting 100 words. Join me, and tag your post with ‘Friday Drabble’ and use the hash-tag #fridaydrabble on Twitter.

.: Aroused :.

She woke to the caress of her neck. It tickled.

Her back to her husband, she moved her leg, and gently touched his. β€œMen and their morning inspiration,” she smiled to herself.

The touch tingled down her spine, as she sighed and arched her back slightly.

She moved closer to her husband, feeling the warmth of his chest against her back. She closed her eyes and caught her breath, as the tingle proceeded downward.

Her body warm with desire, she turned to her husband.

He was still asleep.

Unaware of the arousal it caused, the roach crawled under the bed.

  1. Ew! Ew! Ew!!

    I know what you mean about creativity on demand — I had half a dozen ideas throughout the week and none of them really came together for me… 😦

    1. It may have been in my best interest to sit out for Friday’s drabble. Then again, I look forward to Fridays. I think the better idea is to go easy on the flash fictions during the week. Seriously – how do people do it?
      Thank you for reading, Steve. Sleep tight!

  2. Yuck, indeed!

    For a person who’s struggling with writer’s block, you’re giving us, your readers, great stuff to read, Lenore! Keep at it!

    1. Oh goodness, Priya. Thank you. For me there is a fine line between cranking stuff out on a daily basis and providing something worth reading. I hope my attempt at building my writing muscle (in fiction) is providing something worth reading. Your vote of confidence is nice to receive.

  3. Spiders, ants, etc. I can handle but a roach … I woulda been jumpin’ outta the bed, the screechin’ causing my husband to drop to the floor.

    1. Thank you for letting me know you like the new layout/theme. The positive responses I am receiving are easing my nerves. I am still on the fence with it. (Though I won’t change.)
      Sorry to make you jump, MJ. I hope the jump wasn’t followed by the heebee jeebies. πŸ™‚

    1. I don’t know if I watched reruns or first runs – regardless, I am very familiar with Rod Sterling and the Twilight Zone. I did watch it when I was a kid. I actually preferred One Step Beyond. I loved that show. I would watch it with my Mom and Dad.

That was my thought on the matter. Your comment?
