Game On! is a short story I’m serving up on Weekend Writing Warriors for #8Sunday. Heath is a semi-pro football player in town for the season. He meets Jordan, a teacher with obvious trust issues, who proposes a sexual game. In this week’s snippet, they’ve returned from dinner and trip along Virginia Beach’s strip where the young crowd made Heath feel his years.
Back at his place, Heath led her between the neighboring houses and onto the beach where a crescent moon hung lazily over the horizon.
He curled an arm around her waist as they walked. Her lime and coconut lotion enticed him to taste the silky skin along her neck while wisps of her hair tickled his face as her head leaned against him.
“Don’t you want to ask me about my sordid past?” she whispered.
“The lawsuit or the man,” he asked, turning to face her. “You lived it, Jordan, why would I want to put you through any more pain to satisfy any curiosity I might have?”
“I care what you think of me.” Her eyelids lowered in a resigned manner.
Hope you enjoyed this week’s eight and will check out other Weekend Writing Warriors‘ blogs.
