Girl Trouble- #flashfiction ABC Wednesday

 

Andy stood with his back to the wall, the cocktail in his hand shaking as his fingers trembled from the exhaustion of the past hour. With his free hand, he fished into his pocket and pulled out a large handkerchief with which he mopped his brow. He then pulled out a cell phone from the same pocket and dialed a number with agitation writ large on his face.

How could you? he said in a broken voice.

The voice on the other end chuckled and replied, ‘Hey, I thought you liked talkative women. And it’s only been an hour on the date, right?’

Andy responded, in a voice choked with emotion, ‘Remind me never to ask you to set up a date. Not with garrulous women who never pause for breath!’

Deep Desire- ABC Wednesday

desire

 

Drawn by the scent, she crept forward. Her eyes skimmed the area for any sign of activity. Sensing none, she daringly zipped across the floor, aiming for the delectable prize.

Driven by desire she stood looking at the item, sitting above her head.

Delicately, she put one hand out and touched it with her fingertips. Despair broke out on her face as she realised that it was just out of reach.

Determined to get it, she defiantly stepped onto the low divan, which was off limits for her.

Delight now lit up her features as her chubby fingers closed around the decorative and delicious cupcake. With a deep sigh, her darling cheeks puffed up, content with the deed she had done.
