Friday Fictioneers – The Shadow

PHOTO PROMPT © Sarah Potter

The blankets hide us in warm safety. Your legs part when I put my hand on your thigh, and I feel the moist arousal. You offer me your virginity. Yet, I cannot. Or, I should not.

Three years planning and your five-thousand-mile journey stymied by a single look.

While you were already in the air, just half a day ago, I fell in love. I lack the wisdom to know what to do next.


Friday fictioneers is a weekly challenge set by Rochelle Wisoff Fields to write a 100-word story in response to a photo prompt. You can find other stories here

      1. Truth. And having just watched the fourth season of The Crown (no matter how much fiction, there has to be a smattering of the truth) I am reminded of desire vs duty. All of them lost so much.

  1. Such a fascinating, erotic story. It makes me think of the old wisdom that good romantic fiction depends on setting as much as anything else. You think it’s about the sex but actually it’s about everything else. I feel both pulled in and called out as a voyeuristic reader of someone else’s complex story and personal choices. Really well done on all counts.
