It’s week nineteen of the flash fiction challenge by Flash Fiction for Aspiring Artists, check out their blog and join in or read other’s posts and be inspired. I’m almost late to the party this week, but I made it. I loved this picture, it was oddly inspiring. When you finish reading I wonder if you’ll find it endearing or creepy. I’d love to know.
Read mine below and feel free to leave a comment. Enjoy!
LOVE NEVER DIES (157 words)
Jackson’s hands trail down my back, his lips hot against mine. I peek at the gravestones from the corner of my eye and push him away. “We shouldn’t be doing this here.”
His green eyes darken with lust in the late afternoon sun, the sway of trees cause shadows to dance across his face. “But it’s impossible when I’m around you.” He reaches for me again and I melt back into him, desire like a magnet holding our bodies together.
I come up for air, both our breaths uneven, the slight breeze cooling the flush across my skin.
“I want to show you something,” he says and pulls me along. Glancing back he graces me with a smile. My heart swells. We reach a plot shaded by a large oak. He kneels in the grass and brushes the leaves away.
Jackson extends his hand to me. “Laura, I’d like you to meet my wife.”
