July 1

He rested his hands on between her breasts, and once again offered a prayer. She met his eyes, unafraid – while his were wide with wonder. She kissed him, her hands tangling in his long hair. The charms he knotted into his hair in tiny braids clicked against one another. #vss365a #TempleOfTwilight

July 1

Caroline opened the door, and the bells attached to it chimed.  It took a moment for her eyes to adjust, but the interior looked exactly as she expected.  The fortune teller’s shop was dimly lit with lots of beaded curtains and the heavy scent of incense. #vss365 #vss365a

July 1

Her hands traveled everywhere, touching everything. He said he loved her boldness, how she reached fearlessly. & her touch rewarded, as she found tracts slid into crevices or on protruding bits of rock. They were left for the hands brave enough to plumb the darkness. #BookishTues #ArchiveFiction

July 1

I think my moans made him smile, maybe just a quirk of his lips.  And thinking of his lips, he leaned forward and kissed me. His tongue, as cold as the rest of him, invaded my mouth.  My own tongue grazed his teeth, tearing it. I tasted my blood.  And I heard him moan. #Btr2sDay

July 1

“Stand” he ordered. I managed to scramble to my feet, and he never removed his hand from my throat. His free hand tore my panties away.  I gasped as his cold hand slipped between my legs.  And he was cold, just a touch above ice. #FoodParty

July 1

“You will meet your future husband at Lady Ward’s ball,” he said.  His finger burned across her palm, “this line,” he nodded at her palm, but never dropped his gaze from hers, “tells me that you have deep, hidden passions.” #LustyMondayLit

July 1

“Can you take me to the house Teo speaks of?”

“I know the house,” Telmax’s words were hesitant, “but he’ll kill me if I put you at risk.”

“Don’t worry about Mitlan.” Soshay replied.

He shrugged, “It’s not Mitlan’s wrath I fear. Keron will kill me when he learns of this.” #MuseMon #TempleOfTwilight

July 1

He led her toward the table & gestured for her to sit. “Is this your first time?”

Caroline found herself gazing at his full lips. “Um, no. Ah, yes. Yes, this is my first tarot reading.”

“Well, I promise to be gentle,” He replied and laid out three cards face down. #LoveLines

July 2

He looked like Harrison Ford circa Witness, so I took his number. #Storyin12

July 2

“I’m not ashamed of you,” I muttered.

He sat in silence. 

“But it’s weird. You & Jenny.” I knew that her control of him was the problem. I still wondered if he chose me to spite her. Or if I was simply a convenient way for him to regain some of his independence. #twisted2sday #PayingTheFerryman

July 2

Enid & Domaris had a flawless plan. They’d sneak right past the death commandos guarding the Tau Ceti Cubes, and then, they’d slip inside the cubes. Sitting with their wrists and ankles restrained, they learned that death commandos were the bane of flawless plans #SFFAskew #galacticarcheologist

July 2

“Enid Ontario, your reputation proceeds you,” the head death commando said removing her helmet.

Enid smiled, “Does that mean you’d consider letting us go with a warning?”

The death command scoffed.

“So records won’t be expunged?” Domaris asked. #TrickyTues #galacticarcheologist

July 4

Two drops the witch had said, & she’d be free of him. With a deep breath, she counted each drop as it hit her tongue. Minutes later as the moon rose, her body twisted and changed. The last thing he saw was a shadow and flash of fangs as she growled and pounced. #horrorprompt

July 4

I opened Dee’s address book and started looking over names.  I decided to skip anyone whose phone numbers still included letters, it was only a guess, but I doubted any number that started with Klondike or Liberty would still be in service. #vss365a #vss365 #Nekyia

July 4

Betsy’s hand moved lower, tickling Natalie’s trembling belly, her fingers stopping at Natalie’s mons. “I can feel her heat from here,” She said to Des. “Is she always so randy?”

Des continued to pet Natalie’s hair. “Absolutely. It’s why I love my kitten.”

#WriteLGBTQ

July 4

Was I ashamed of Vic? 

I pushed those thoughts aside as we argued about where to order dinner.  We finally decided on delivery Thai, and I declared a suspension on discussing anything serious for the night. #140Line #PayingTheFerryman

July 4

He crooked his fingers, pressing against her interior walls, seeking her g-spot.  She gasped.

Des’s gaze filled with wonder, “That’s a new expression.” He closed his eyes and kissed her deeply, and Natalie couldn’t hold back. #Thurds

July 5

there were ghosts in the house playing

children w/ empty eyes

they played in the house

w/ hushed voices & silent laughter

there were children in the house sleeping

under the bed in the backroom

down in the darkness

inside the dirt under the concrete floor

#vsspoem #ArchiveFiction

July 5

Dee knew a lot about the Preterworld, well she and your grandmother did.” 

I interrupted, “Wait, stop.”  I frowned, “I’m pretty sure ‘Preterworld’ isn’t a word.”

Jenny laughed, “Preter, from preternatural.  Kinda like supernatural, but less derogatory.” #superherosat #Nekyia

July 5

Echo stared at the figures before her, but it was like her brain couldn’t process their forms.

“The sirens call you Echo,” the lead figure said. Its maw revealing rows of shark teeth. “Come,” it offered a clawed hand.

Echo nodded, she’d expected first contact sooner #vss365a #SleepingInTheStars

July 5

She hadn’t expected anything as cliche as fireworks. But when the lash first kissed her skin, she saw explosions and shivered in delight.

#writeaskew #FridayKiss

July 5

The sandstorm had her whiskers sparking. Vivian inhaled a lungful of glowing green smoke. She wasn’t usually a fan of smoke, but the green smoke called Revolt was tasty.

She ordered another pipe and tried once more to reach O’Shaughnessy thru the static on the com. #scififri #MarsNoir

July 5

Sometimes you leave w/ someone. They throw their arm over your shoulders, both of you slick with sweat. But you are not like the couples constantly together; you wander around alone, dancing when the music demands it, not when you have a partner. #WhoNeedsAHero #ArchiveFiction

July 5

She dropped her coat to the ground & watched the hunger, the worship cross his face. She released his cock from its cage, & it spring free. She released him from his bounds & slowly massaged his wrists, feeeling the chill of his skin even thru her gloves. #AKChickenChick

July 5

I giggled and buried my face between her breasts. As I licked and nipped at the exposed flesh, she wiggled around, thrusting her breasts forward, at me as she reached behind her back to unclasp her bra. Her tits tumbled free, & I took one of her nipples into my mouth. #lesficfri

July 5

Heather frowned hearing the doorbell. She thought it had to be her neighbor, an old busybody who always nosed around. She considered ignoring the bell but was afraid the woman would ring again waking the baby.

She opened the door & froze.

“Hello, Heather.”  The man said.  #FP #ArchiveFiction

July 6

Kit wrapped a bandage around her arm. She blinked as a cloud of darkness unfurled within the center of the magic circle. The roiling darkness coalesced into the figure of an enormous panther.

“Who has called me forth?” It roared pacing the confines of the circle. #vss365 #ArtesMagicae

July 6

The commando gave Domaris and Enid a withering look, “Did you two egg heads think you were being brave trying to break in here?”

Enid shook her head, “No, but I thought we were pretty clever.” She gave the commando a cheeky smile. “I’ve been inside already, you know.” #SciFanSat #galacticarcheology

July 6

Vickie took another sip of the anise-flavored liquor. Colin had promised her that the journal was enchanted so that no one but the two of them could read it, but she still found herself glancing around the hotel bar. #SoYouWriteSat

July 7

Faith could feel the moist heat of Anne’s arousal on her lips before she touched the pirate’s flesh. Once there, Faith lapped & sucked at her like she was an oasis. Faith savored the taste of her lover, her tongue swirling around Anne’s clitoris. #LilLuvStory

July 7

She felt the cool brush of ghostly hands.  The ghosts slid the blanket from her body, revealing her naked flesh. The ghostly hands wrapped around her ankles, pulling her legs wide open. “Oh yes,” she murmured. #SeduceMeSunday

July 7

The guard removed his fingers, coated in the girl’s wetness & rubbed his cock, coating it in her juices. He placed the head of his cock against the maid’s asshole, & the girl squealed again. As his cock slowly slipped inside her ass, the maid lost her battle & came. #SunScribbles

July 7

Enid never saw it coming, but she felt the sting of the commando’s taser.

“Are you going to cooperate now?”

Enid grit her teeth against the spasms wracking her body. “If I don’t get back inside that Cube, we are all going to die.” #vss365 #galaticarcheology

July 7

She always sought a partner who understood her need to be alone.

#storyin12

July 7

He was a pied piper, beguiling teen girls to their deaths and shallow graves in the Tucson desert. Of course the town blamed the girls for their own murders, never recognizing they created this piper in their own community.   

#ProjectFairyTale

July 7

She ran a gloved hand over the blue roan’s coat. It was a gorgeous beast, & from its gait, she identified him. He moved like the water is came from. The kelpie’s psychic tug, made her want to climb on its back and be dragged into the sea.

“I’ll take him.” #SinisterSunday

July 7

It only took a few drinks, and Alice and one of the Krakens were on their way to its ship. She’d learned that Krakens were gender-neutral, telepathic, and this one was interested in exploring salacious negotiations with her. #SexySmutSunday

July 8

“Merci, Shahzada,” he said & reached for the glass just as she did. Their hands brushed,& Maggie felt the electricity. She pulled her hand away, her mind flooded w/ the images from the dream, the feelings from the dream.

“Sorry, static,” Jean said and grabbed the glass. #vss365 #DjinnJean

July 8

“You’d look like some wanton Greek nymph or mermaid, naked and seductive, luring men to salacious deeds before drowning them for their impertinence. His fingers stroked her hand, and she recalled how much his touch had aroused her before.  #LustyMondayLit #amwritingerotica

July 8

“You built the program to my specs?” Alice asked.

Domaris, the Centari, nodded, “I haven’t had a lot of requests like this,” the alien smiled at her.  “If you’d like some company, I’d be happy to join you in the program.” #PlugYourself #erotica

July 8

His fingers were tight around her wrist, not hurting her, but letting her feel his strength. She watched his lips, red with her blood draw nearer. She closed her eyes as he kissed her. His lips were hard against hers.  The kiss tasted of her blood, salt & copper. #MuseMon #TempleOfTwilight

July 9

“Alice,” the note read, “I’ve borrowed your holodeck video game.”

Alice paled reading the note. The program wasn’t a game. It was a fully immersive Roman orgy. “Computer locate Suda.” 

“Suda is in the holodeck, running Domaris Program Rome.” #twisted2sday

July 9

She still carries the picture; it’s creased from countless folding & worn from being shoved into her wallet, but it was the last part of him she had, the only part of him. Sitting alone she looks at it, letting her fingers trace the smooth edges. #writingromancelines #ArchiveFiction

July 9

Caroline rode him hard and fast. And he encouraged her, telling her to use him for her pleasure. She felt him shift beneath her, moving only to be in a better position for her.  #vss365

July 9

The consternated commando turned her taser on Domaris. Enid didn’t know if the woman was unfamiliar with Centari or just so frustrated that she wasn’t thinking clearly. Domaris’s species absorbed electricity and converted into a potentially deadly shock. #TrickyTues #GalacticArchaeology

July 9

The cat, she slowly realized, was not a temple pet. It was far too large for that. It cocked its head at her & bounded into the council room. “No, cat!” she whispered after its bounding form. Then slapped her hand over her mouth terrified that her words would be heard. #btr2sday #TempleOfTwilight

July 9

Kyle had become obsessed with me. He’d actually tried attacking me & Kate’s friend Constantine out of stalker jealousy. Constantine had tried to remove Kyle’s feelings for me. Much like Kate’s efforts to free Vic, it hadn’t worked.  #BookishTues #Nekyia

July 9

Julia lounged on the massive bed. It had taken her time to acclimate to an electricity-free existence. The smell of wood smoke was replaced with the sweet scent of the candles, as Bjorn started lighting them. #FoodParty

July 11

The other night I ran into her.  I’d developed a bit of a crush on her since our first meeting.  She was a witty woman and charming in a shy way.  She was also an adorable, pixie-like woman at just about five feet tall, with long dark hair. #thurspeak

July 11

Des moaned and bit his lip, enjoying Will’s attention. 

Will raised his head from Des’s cock and winked at Natalie.  “Do you want to touch yourself, while you watch?”

Natalie nodded frantically, “Yes, please, yes Sir.” #WriteLGBTQ

July 11

He chuckled softly, “I love watching a woman pleasured by a lover.” He paused a moment, “I host regular parties in my plantation for those select few who share my predilections.” His fingers clamped tighter on her waist” #140Line

July 11

She picked up the drink again, letting the condensation drip onto her bare skin.  It ran down to her belly, sliding off her sides. She felt the water on her legs as well, well outside the reach of the glass.  She glanced up at the dark clouds, and the storm started. #Thurds

July 11

She growled in fury, pacing the room. Liar. An angry shriek filled her ears, and the inhumanness of it shocked her. She froze then, in horror and confusion. Her mind flashed back to the story of the jaguar woman, and she glanced down and saw her body, tense but human. #vss365 #TempleOfTwilight

July 11

It had taken Cali over a year of planning, smoozing, and wrangling to get her expedition permission to explore this section of her the Grand Canyon.

Yet, here she was, with Dot and Helen. #WIPitWed

July 11

Ohili paused, “He claimed from across the Eastern Sea, far past the Island Nations.  How anyone could travel that far I know not.  He died when I was very young, so I can only tell you about my mother’s stories.” #wawwed #TempleOfTwilight

July 11

Natalie stared at the ice dildo in the glass in the glass. “You want me to use that?”

Des smiled at her and nodded.  “Once it’s melted, you can come.” #WIPWordSearch

July 11

A kick to his knees sent him down to the asphalt. Before he could recover, she launched herself at him, knocking him flat. She grabbed a handful of his hair & jerked his head up. “Tough enough for you?” She hissed.

He sneered at her, “Lucky shot, bitch.” He shot back. #TalesNoir

July 11

His eyes once again traveled over body noting her tattoos – the ones of the moon’s phases that stretched from between her breasts to her pubis seemed the most interesting to him. “You serve the Bendis, the Goddess of Moon and of Forest and of Magic?” #1linewed

July 12

The darkness in the center of the circle coalesced as the summoned spirit took form. Kit shivered as its newly formed maw dipped into the bowl of her blood.

“I do not know you, but I know your blood. Your line is precious to me,” It hissed.

 #vss365 #ArtesMagicae

July 12

Crawling through the brick-lined tunnel, the broken stones made her knees bleed. She followed his lead. This was another new place, a place scribbled about in the pamphlets and scrawled on the walls. A place they’d needed to go together. #vss365 #ArchiveFiction

July 12

The Martian underworld’s protection operation went deeper than O’Shaughnessy realized. & the Centauri hadn’t been working alone when they’d hijacked her. 

“If they only target, non-terrans, so why come to me? I’m a terran”

“Vivael, names you a friend to non-terrans” #scififri #MarsNoir

July 12

She went out to the backyard. The heavy heat wasn’t any better outside, and the air was still, thick and waiting. Julia laid on a lounge, looking up at the darkening, cloud-filled sky. #Fri1st

July 12

She wasn’t surprised to catch glimpses of ghosts, not the disembodied soul types, but the memory of the place. She watched misty figures using the pool for millennia. Distracted by the figures, she didn’t immediately notice the priest returned. #AKChickenChick

July 12

Faith held tightly to her Captain. “Goodbye, my Captain.” She breathed into Anne’s ear. “Return to me.”

Faith wasn’t sure, but she thought Anne’s eyes glistened. “My Faith. I’ll be back for you.” Anne’s voice was thick. And she turned and walked into the darkness. #WhoNeedsAHero

July 12

Cami lay next to Laura & pressed her lips to Laura’s neck. Laura shivered in delight running her fingers thru Cami’s hair. Laura gasped as Cami’s fingers grazed her thighs, inching higher, slipping between Laura’s thighs, finding her warm & wet & inviting. #FriTease

July 12

Mitlan slumped back in the chair. To Keron, he looked utterly defeated. “The abuses of his station are my responsibility, & if he holds the power of diplomacy, then I lose my standing. I cannot be trusted. I am compromised beyond redemption.” His voice was flat. #WriteAskew #TempleOfTwilight

July 12

He pulled her down to the ground, laying her on his discarded shirt. He stood over her for a moment, & Belle looked at her beast. His bulk was more impressive now that he was naked, & she licked her lips seeing the V of dark hair ended at his jutting cock. #FridayKiss

July 12

Caroline walked back toward the table where she’d received her reading. The psychic was still sitting at the table, the cards laid out in front of him. They were the explicit cards, laid out in a complex pattern of lust and desire. #FP

July 12

It had been days of sodden heat and that anxious pressure that precedes a storm. It was enough to drive Julia to distraction. She’d spent the day distracted in the sticky heat, and sunset brought little relief. #lesficfri

July 13

We reached a distant corner of the grounds, the well-tended trees and hedges giving way to wilder, unkempt bushes and uncut lawns. Clearly, this was a section not expecting visitors. Sir led me down an overgrown path, the shrubs tugged at my clothes. #QWriters

July 13

Kit stared at the creature in the circle. “Fuck yeah!” She muttered, “It worked. I’ve yoked a demon.”

Killakee Cat lifted its head from the bowl of blood. “You had doubts?” #SinisterSunday #ArtesMagicae

July 13

His penchant for rough play was exactly what I was looking for. When he closed his hands around my tits & squeezed, his fingers digging into my flesh, I moaned and felt my mind shift. I just feel and I want to make Daddy happy. #LilLuvStory

July 13

Beauty stared at the fairy’s red lips and then stared down at her own finger. She reached her hand out once again stabbing her finger w/ the spindle. “More,” she said, raising her eyes from her bleeding thumb, to the meet the storm gray eyes of the wicked fairy. #SeduceMeSunday

July 13

Natasha learned to spot men like him in boot camp. He saw her uniform as a challenge. She wondered if he was the type that wanted to help her release her “true nature” & find her feminine side or if he was the kind that wanted to prove he could take her in a fight. #SunScribbles

July 13

The fog was fading from the sea. She pulled her boots on and the sand stuck to her feet leaving a million tiny cuts on her skin and a million tiny drops of blood that filled her boots. The sun glittered on the water & she disappeared into the tattered remnants of the fog. #SunWIP #ArchiveFiction

July 13

Here his grandmother would drink, and in the flickering candle light, she would tell him the endless stories of the relic, the throne, she used.  She censored nothing from his young ears, neither sex nor violence were taboo to Anacoana. #WomenWrite #TempleOfTwilight

July 14

July 14

Slipping into her heels, she gave one last shimmy in the mirror. Her sequins shimmered, her breasts jiggled, & her feathers swished. She sauntered on to the stage. Being on stage was her respite from her day job and her body gyrated with abandon. #SexySmutSunday

July 14

“I’d like very much to give you a preview of the pleasure I can bring you.” His gloved hand stroked up her thigh, above her stocking onto her bare flesh.

“Here?” she was incredulous. #amwritingerotica #erotica

July 15

Midnight at the crossroads, he signed the contract paying with his soul.

#storyin12

July 15

She ran her fingers over the cup. The feel of the rough clay absorbed all of her attention. At Ohili’s prompting, she drank. The water slid down her throat, unleashing another torrent of sensations. It was like she had never tasted, touched, or smelt anything before #vss365 #TempleOfTwilight

July 15

Amanda’s father wasn’t unhappy about the match with Noah; however, she knew that he had harbored hopes for her to marry further up the social ladder, but Noah’s family was perfectly respectable, and he learned obscenely wealthy. #erotica

July 15

“We are part of her rivalry w/ Tez.” Soshay closed her eyes, “None of what we feel is real. It has been forced upon us, by Her.” She opened her eyes, but she could not look at Keron, wondering if Zel’s interference mattered, or if their connection inevitable? #MuseMon #TempleOfTwilight

July 15

She felt her face flame, as she recalled her disclosure of depraved fantasies to this man. At the time, she’d believed him to a poor fortune teller, not a man she’d run into in the highest echelons of society. #LoveLines

July 16

She looked over the list of courses tasseomancy, necromancy, & weather witching.  #storyin12

July 16

The hikers ignored the warnings, those of the local people and the posted signs. And were drawn down the trail by the petrichor and scent of wildflowers emanating from below. One by one they succumbed to the fumes, laying on the trail to feed the flowers. #horrorprompt

July 16

Tom, Jack, & Coq had lived together in a small cottage for decades until they were swindled out of their home. The robbers thought them easy prey, but the 3 lovers together used the robber’s superstition to haunt the house until he fled in terror. #projectfairytale

July 16

She kissed Maggie’s belly & slipped between Maggie’s legs.

At the first brush of her tongue, Maggie let out a gasp. Georgia’s tongue delved between Maggie’s thighs.

Georgia shifted away, “You taste so good, Maggie” she whispered her face shadowed by Maggie’s thighs. #vss365 #DjinnJean

July 16

I remembered waking up w/ a man talking to me. He was asking me questions & got angry when I wouldn’t answer him. Thana, my mother, had stormed in yelling at him, finally throwing plates at him. I had covered my head & cried at the yelling and crashing objects. #tuestropes #Nekyia

July 16

The cook gave her a concerned look, “I guess it can’t hurt for me to tell you, besides the fool priests in this temple would figure it out eventually.”  He smiled at her, “You wear the mark of the True Bride.” #twisted2sday #TempleOfTwilight

July 16

She stood up in the water & noticed that the man of God did not look away from her naked flesh. In fact, his dark eyes actively traveled over her form. “Genius loci,” Julia said to him, knowing that she was naming him for what he truly was. #WritingRomanceLines

July 16

She stared at the ceiling, trying to ignore the sounds he made.  She almost dropped her drink, bolting up when she heard a new sound. The cry became a howl, and she heard an awful grinding, as the chains pulled from the wall.  She knew that would be a mess to fix. #BookishTues

July 16

The laptop sitting in one corner of the antique carved mahogany was a strange sight. Dee was computer literate, but I’d never seen her use one. I’d always pictured her sitting at an old typewriter that magically connected to the internet, like some steampunk machine. #Btr2sDay #Nekyia

July 16

Soshay knew there was too much that lay unresolved between them. She resented Chacon for failing in the Temple of Dawn. If Chacon had remained in the service of Zel, then she would not have been chosen not serve Tez. But what would I be if I didn’t serve him? #FoodParty #TempleOfTwilight

July 17

He said she’d be “prettier without body graffiti.” She laughed walking away.

#storyin12

July 17

Time seemed to stop in the room.  Soshay could only focus on the resonance of the words; words that seemed to flow through her body.  “I, Soshay, chosen of Tez, his True Bride, seek alliance with the Temple of Dawn, and Zel’s True High Priestess.” #WippetWednesday #TempleOfTwilight

July 17

Amanda knew she’d gone too far with this game. This type of talk was dangerous, at least for her. If he repeated this game to the wrong sort, her reputation would be ruined. & for a woman like her, reputation was the only thing she had to sell in the marriage market. #vss365

July 17

They thought polyamory was a phase. It wasn’t, & finding dating partners who understood non-monogamy wasn’t the hard part. It was finding people who understood that it wasn’t about “playing the field” until the mythic “one” popped into one’s life. #wawwed

July 17

Georgia did not hesitate when it came to kissing, & Maggie melted into her arms. Georgia’s phone chirped alerting her that her car was arriving.

“Am I to forward if I invite you to come home with me?” #WIPWordSearch #DjinnJean

July 17

At night we sit on my balcony, w/ the table pushed to one corner and fill the ashtray w/ cigarettes.

I like to think we always fill each other with words, but tonight we are both silent.  The sunset is behind us, so we only notice the growing dark. #1linewed #ArchiveFiction

July 18

“Stay like that,” I said. I hadn’t managed an order yet, but at least I didn’t sound timid. She nodded, & I walked slowly around her, just looking at her. I ran my fingers down her neck, across her clavicle, between her breasts, & over the curve of her belly. #Thurspeak

July 18

Servant of My Brother, the voice rang thru her skull, I hear your words, but destruction, death, pain these have always been My gifts. Birth is a battle as awful as those waged with weapons. I am the serpent, the huancan, the plowed & the blighted fields. #WriteLGBTQ #140Line #TempleOfTwilight

July 18

He jerked as the cold Pacific tide reached his feet.  He tried to move and she shook her head.  He gritted his teeth against the cold, but Hali noticed his erection wasn’t diminished.  #Thurds

July 19

Maggie knew the case from her time in Poseidon’s Protectors. Some Protectors had maybe broken the law, maybe not. She’d been impressed w/ the legal team; no jail time & it set a precedent that protected the beach. “You were the attorney?” He nodded. #fantasmancelove #DjinnJean

July 19

She smiled at me from behind the curtain of thick pale hair. She sat next to me and shook out the dress a little trying to rid it of the water. Outside the covered bush stop, the rain lightened to misty glimmers in the foggy yellow streetlights. #fri1st #ArchiveFiction

July 19

Will reached out & ran a finger over her collar bone. His touch was slow, measured & Natalie thought perhaps slow to allow her time to process & use her safe word if needed.  She found herself leaning into his touch; his rich chocolate eyes were still locked onto hers.#FridayKiss

July 19

This was a much larger step than her bold talk. She had no marriage contract from him, but her body hungered for the experience. & he was right, the idea of being pleasured here only yards away from the party guests had her dizzy. “Yes, please,” she whispered #FriTease

July 19

She had no idea why the compound had brought on the response it had, but she wasn’t keen on being in the lab if the overwhelming need to orgasm overcame her again. She began her drive home, taking the quickest route & made it to the highway before the tingling began #WriteAskew

July 19

Without a word, he grabbed her by the hair, his fingers next to her scalp. He pulled her to her feet, & she teetered like a fawn in the ludicrously high heeled boots. #FP

July 19

Viv lay on the moss in the Smoke Shop’s verdant backroom. It was an expensive endeavor to build a garden on Mars. The plants came from many planets, But neither the silver moss of Viv’s homeworld nor the glowing indigo flowers from the swan nebula soothed her fears. #vss365 #MarsNoir

July 19

The heavy doors to the altar room were opened & Soshay stepped inside. The ritual was timed to coincide w/ sunset, Tez’s hour. Already the ceiling & upper windows were cast in the purple shadows of twilight, but it was the setting sun that made Soshay pause. #WIPWordSearch #TempleOfTwilight

July 20

“Well met, Hecate’s servant. Do you wish the flying ointment?”

“Yes, please” she answered.

The Magister dipped his hands into the cauldron at his feet, & Charity could see the flames reflected in the grease covering his hands. #vss365

A pulsing quasar

July 20

All three of them should have been scanning the canyon wall on the way down. Somewhere in that expanse of striated rockface was the supposed entrance of the temple. From the description in the story, it was just a cave mouth, the interior held the real treasures. #SlapDashSat

July 20

Julia pulled her eyes away from the rainbow & back to him. He didn’t look annoyed anymore, just amused.

“I think I owe you an apology” she answered, contrite. & then she gave him a sultry smile, “Can I make it up to you?” #womenwrite

July 20

I knew the fey were beautiful, but they were so pale their skin was almost silver in the moonlight, w/ hair flowing in waist-length waves of jet, garnet, & pearl. “A witch” I heard hissed from their lips, but I didn’t see a single one speak. #SoYouWriteSat

Enid wished she could see the look on the Commandos’ faces when they found the cell vacant, but she & Domaris had to go.

Enid clutched Domaris’s hand as they stood next to the largest of the glowing Tau Ceti Cubes.

She kissed Domaris and stepped into the cube. #SciFanSat #GalacticArchaeology

“My mother was Suyuian. My father,” he shrugged, “I have never met his people, & I do not think any of us, Suyuian, Cetza, or Lakiti would wish to. My mother claimed their desire for new lands rivaled the avarice of the Cetza.”He softened the criticism with a smile. #SuperheroSat #TempleOfTwilight

Once Colin intoned the final words, they waited. Magick never worked the way Victoria expected it to. She watched the circle Colin had painstakingly laid out, waiting for a cloud of smoke or a figure to slowly materialize. But the space went from empty, to not empty. #SunWIP

“How long will Jenny be gone?”

He shrugged, “She didn’t say.”

I smiled, “Well, then come to bed so we can make the most of an empty house.”

His dark eyes met mine for a moment before he gave me his slow sultry smile. #LilLuvStory #PayingTheFerryman

As the queen of Aethiopia, Andromeda waited in the cave to complete the hieros gamos and bind herself to the land. Outside the cave, she heard the crash of the sea, and under the incense, she could smell the brine of the sea. #SunScribbles

She heard the swoosh of the roses a second before the rose thorns met her flesh.  She yelped as the thorns scored her flesh, and the soft petals of the roses brush her skin, tickling her as he pulled his arm back to swing again.

July 21

She took his hand, and licked her lips, before standing on her toes to kiss him lightly. It was a quick kiss, almost innocent – but Belle felt the jolt run through her. She wanted this massive man, and she wanted him here in the wild woods. #SexySmutSunday

July 22

I nodded, “Some kind of sex demons? Like a boy-succubus?”

She harrumphed at my use of demon.  “Demons don’t exist.  But lilus are close.  They feed off of emotions, mostly sex and love.  They choose a victim and stalk and seduce them to death.” #MuseMon #Nekyia

July 22

There were voices in the fog. Whispered snatches of conversations carried in the liquid air. Soft wispy sounds tickled her ears. Distant shouts muffled from behind slammed doors.  And screams like the ceaseless cries of peacocks slithered in each pewter tumble. #MurderMonday #ArchiveFiction

July 22

Noah squeezed her hands. “I will envy every moan and delight that I am certain Dinah will draw out of you,” he leaned forward and kissed her then.  #LustyMondayLit

July 23

Someone knocked on the door.  I opened it, expecting to find Jenny laden with bags of food but instead found Detective Kyle Smyth.  The sun chose that moment to break from the clouds, and I cringed at the brightness.

“Sorry to bother you, Hero.”  He said. #FoodParty #Nekyia

July 23

Hali lay on her stomach, & crossed her ankles & slowly rocked her upraised calves back& forth. She’d chosen a secluded stretch of beach, a place a little too rocky for most people to want to make the trek. Hali wasn’t a big fan of people.  #WIPwordsearch

July 23

The cut ran from Atargatis’s neck between her breasts& down her scaled hip. It gleamed wetly. It would scar, an unending reminder of the fisherman who’d tried to make a meal of her. She picked his flesh from her teeth, picking up another of his bones to gnaw. #horrorprompt

July 23

Amanda knew that entering the house with Dinah could be folly. She wanted to believe Noah, that he was happy to allow her to explore her pleasure. She wanted all the promises he made to be true. #vss365

July 26

He dropped out of the tree & crouching on the ground looking around. His eyes ran over me & I held my breath. I think he saw me, his mouth curled into a small smile before he turned away. He stood up & brushed leaves from his tweed coat. He turned back to me & winked. #FridayKiss #ArchiveFiction

Jul 26

Had he really wanted this to be a date or something?  We decided to meet at one of the many independent coffee houses in town.  The one he suggested, Artes Magicae, wasn’t too far from my apartment, and had a great outdoor garden.  We agreed to meet at seven. #FridayKiss #Nekyia

July 26

Her thighs clamped around my head. My tongue teased her clit,& I drew the nub of flesh between my lips and sucked gently until she cried out for more. When she orgasmed, my lips were coated in her juices, her honeysuckle scent clinging to my lips. #FriTease

July 26

Setch closed her eyes, but it did not stop the onslaught of images of cities she did not recognize in flames, or streets becoming rivers of blood.

“Drink, Setch.”

Setch managed to swallow the sour liquid offered to her and finally slipped into blissful oblivion. #FP #TempleOfTwilight

Jul 26

“I want to, need to talk,” He said & reached around me for the cigarettes. 

When he moved, I thought about his scars, which stretched from his shoulders to disappear into his jeans. But he wouldn’t talk about them. “Talk,” I say, “Tell me anything & I’ll listen.” #whoneedsahero #ArchiveFiction

July 26

Hel smiled, “Sure, Hermod, tell my auntie Frig, she can have Balder back if everyone in all nine worlds cries for him.”

Then, Hel called her Jotun-kin reminding them of the “kindness” she & her siblings had received from the Aesir.

The Giantess Thokk refused to she’d a tear. #vss65

July 26

“Um, break spell,” She looked up, “as in the spell that Dee cast?”      

I shrugged, “That or whoever we were talking to can’t spell.” I tried to laugh at my own weak joke but was feeling far too creeped out. Ouija boards weren’t supposed to work #FantasmanceLove #Nekyia

July 26

She’d strip in front of this man, this stranger, & lay back on the bed. He’d bury his face between her thighs, eating her pussy like a starving man. She’d watch the closet door, moaning & bucking at this man’s face, while Steve watched. #WIPwordsearch

July 26

“I’m sure you date plenty yourself,” she said, noting he was once again dressed in an impeccably cut suit. “Seriously, you must have people throwing themselves at you.” She meant it to be light-hearted, but his face darkened for a moment. #writeaskew

July 27

Kit made her request to the demon familiar. If she wanted to reclaim her family legacy of dark magic, she needed the demon to agree to teach her.  #SatSplat #ArtesMagicae

July 27

There was something off about his proportions. His limbs seemed too long & his face was covered by a network of fine scars, not from injury but something intentional. But it was his eyes that drew me. There were black, no sclera just inky, mind-warping darkness. #Vss365

July 27

Julia lounged naked on the massive bed. It had taken her some time to acclimate to the electricity-free existence. The cabin was heated by a wood stove & lit by candles. #womenwrite

July 27

A rush of water followed by a half-drowned Enid poured from the glowing Tau Ceti Cube. She coughed and wheezed, “the cubes going to explode.”

Domaris helped her to her feet, as the first shot whizzed by. “Damn it, that death commando is back.” #SciFanSat #GalacticArchaeology

July 28

“Darling, are you sure you’ll be happy living so far from home?” her mother asked.

Amanda had agonized over leaving England & resettling in the Caribbean; however, she knew that she could never explore the passions that Noah had unleashed in her if she stayed. #SunScribbles

July 28

Anything I was doing in this graveyard was likely dark if I was being generous, so the faery was right. “No, harm to you,” I fumbled, I had no idea how to address an Unseelie fey – I didn’t know this fey’s rank. “No harm to the Unseelie Court.” #SunWIP

July 29

Her eyes followed his slow pacing in front of the class& lingered on his hands as he pushed a stray lock of hair out of his face. She pictured him not as the scarecrow or statue anymore, but w/ his cheeks flushed with desire and a crown of leaves on his head. #Vss365

July 29

“What interesting ideas in this brain of yours,” he said. His hand brushed my hair back. “You have such wicked thoughts.” He smiled, revealing jagged shark teeth. Before I could move, he grabbed my throat. He didn’t strangle me, just held me in place. #WIPWordSearch

July 29

Bishara gave her an awed smile.  He kissed her again and started another chant.  He traced the symbols and to Vicki, it felt like electricity buzzing through her.

She gasped when Bishara reached her vulva.  His chant ended, and his breath blew over her pussy. #BookishTues

July 29

I enlarged the image & searched it for clues to the location. They were standing in front of a club or café. I was able to see part of the sidewalk marquee that they stood in front of.  From the letters I could make out, it seemed to be a poetry reading. #Btr2sday #Nekyia

July 29

Jenny promised she’d let me know if the lawyer was a Preter.  I was beginning to hope that I developed a preter-detecter too.  Having to rely on Jenny to tell me who wasn’t human just wasn’t convenient. #FoodParty #Nekyia

July 31

That afternoon Amanda attended a garden party. She was delighted to see Noah chatting w/ a group of party guests on the sweeping lawns. It was too soon for him to have contacted her father regarding his marriage proposal, so she was unsure of the proper etiquette. #WIPWordSearch

July 31

When Anne ran away from her Victorian father, she ran directly to the pirates. In Port Royale she fell in love with freedom – and eventually with Jack.

July 31

That summer, we ate sandwiches, slices of corned-beef on rye bread. Just bread & meat, but they tasted good, the spicy rye & the heavy flavor of the meat. We ate them &left the wrappers crumpled on the green, green grass. All of us ate them, tossing crumbs to the birds. #1lineWed #ArchiveFiction
