Shard 453.2: Dicks

The way she looked, they’d be all over her tonight, like flies on honey.

They planned the scenario with less care than usual. They bent the rules this time. She steered astray from the classy/slutty borderline she usually straddled while playing these games. Tonight she wore a short, tight, traffic-light yellow dress. Off the shoulder, low cut. No stockings. No panties. No bra. High stiletto heels. She wasted little effort on subtlety. She dressed to fuck. The...Read On

A Killing in Altamonte Springs

Chester Jones considered himself brighter than most everyone in Altamonte Springs, but was careful not to boast. Even to his wife Sanda, he’d start sentences by putting himself down. “I’m not saying I’m smarter than so-and-so …” he’d begin. But the words that followed invariably showed that Chester did see himself as smarter than so-and-so. It was his way. He was an intellectual dreamer...Read On

Little Black Dress - Part 1

Carly's bitch-boss snares her and her boyfriend in a fiendish trap.

There might have been a more delicious way to wake up, but to that Aaron Debeney had yet to be introduced. The sucking started in his dreams, slow, wet and rhythmic. Gradually his mind unwrapped itself from swathes of sleep. Fully conscious he found himself bone-hard and the sensation ongoing. Apparently the weekend had arrived. Peering under the duvet he saw a familiar platinum-blonde...Read On

The Last Bookshop - Chapter Thirty-Six

Harry's premeditated plans for Laura draw her deeper under his spell.

“So what do you think?” Laura fumbled with a morsel on her plate, trying to skewer it with a fork. Her dexterity, or lack of it, amused Harry, “I think I need my head looked at.” That might have been closer to the truth last week than now. As the morsel submitted, Harry watched her place the fork into her mouth. Those beautiful full lips were somewhere else only a few days ago. His...Read On

My Husband's Best Friend

The irresistible temptation of a rogue

On a warm, quiet night, Lauren lay in bed listening, through her open bedroom window, to the deep moans of an unknown woman that was repeatedly brought near climax, only to be edged back from her orgasmic bliss. Lauren’s husband, dead to the world in a deep sleep, lay next to her, oblivious of the other woman but thirty feet outside their window, being ravaged by Jason, who had been their...Read On

A Queen in Need - A Halloween Story

Fey takes man back to save his great, great...grandmother.

Halloween was approaching, but the days were not growing cold. That was because I was in a campground in southwestern Texas where winter doesn’t show up until February and even then it doesn’t get below forty unless the local weather people are screaming about record lows. I decided to go hiking out through the scrubbrush. The maps warn not to hike alone on a lot of the trails, but I...Read On

The Intern

Mr Robert's intern proves to be more than capable.

"Mrs. Detroit?"  I nodded at the young lady holding a name card in her hands. She was behind a waist-high barrier, the last obstacle for passengers arriving at London's City Airport. I watched her move to intercept me.  "Mrs. Detroit?"  I arched my eyebrows at the unnecessary repeated question but let her continue. "I'm Miss Darcy. I've been sent by Mr. Roberts to look after you."  "How...Read On

Virgin. Whore. Mother. Queen: The Whore.

It was the evening before Flora's wedding and she had been cloistered for six days. She was the one who insisted she follow the traditions of her mother: no one would see her until the day of her wedding and then, only shrouded until her husband came to her in the wedding chamber. It meant she didn't need to meet the Veilanders when they came nor respond to Prince Julian's magnetism until he...Read On

Summer Of Addictive Saturdays - Conclusion

Fiona suspects her affair with Mr. Weston is no longer a secret.

I could live on this feeling forever. In the moon gilded, firefly sparked interval between the idyllic hideaway of Mr. Weston's home and the return to real life, I slid in a barefoot promenade across the newly mowed nap of his front yard. The dewy bouquet of suburban lawn infused the humid air and overwhelmed the vervaine trace of his good night kiss on my cheek, his fourth one. Four weeks....Read On

Nights To Remember

I escaped my fucked-up life into late-night erotic fantasies for years as waves crashed onto the sand beneath my balcony.

Her stories had dirty, rough stuff I loved but also sensual and tender in a way I tried to emulate but couldn't master. I fantasized she spent hours getting aroused reading...Read On

The Grimoire - My Inheritance

Never judge a book by its cover.

Sitting at an antique mahogany table alongside my three loathsome cousins I felt an immense sadness. My uncle, Darcy had passed away, and we were here at the request of his attorney to listen to the provisions of his last will. My cousins, the sons of Darcy’s sister, Priscilla, commonly referred to as Priscilla the prude, sat there with a gleam of anticipation in their beady eyes. Darcy...Read On

Rooftop Dreams

The concrete is colder than I thought it’d be. More abrasive. Like sandpaper and those small, painfully annoying pebbles that squirm their way into your shoes back when you’re a kid drunk off sugared drinks and running like a bat outta hell around the playground.

Paris Palimpsest

Masterpieces fade away, quick as free ink flows

All tales of her innocence are lies. I swear and always will, that all of it was her fault! Hers, and her idiot father's. Truly, he was the fool who left her too long alone, with too many books. It was too much to bear for the fragile sense of a proper demoiselle. The poor thing started to believe in all this modern foolishness about new morals, education and progress... She filled her...Read On

Balls Head

Can you recapture the past?

Balls Head Reserve, as always, made me think rude thoughts. Not because of the name – it's a headland, named after a Lieutenant Ball, who captained one of the ships in the First Fleet. And not even rude thoughts about whoever had decided some place names shouldn't get an apostrophe. Rude thoughts based on memories. This had been our place – Skye's and mine – over twenty years earlier. We...Read On

Delete, Rewrite

Lucy opened the paperback a little wider and tilted it towards the light, but she read only one paragraph before dropping the book into her lap. Sighing, she rubbed her eyes. "I shouldn't be reading," she muttered. "I have to work." Placing the book on her desk, she looked at the laptop in front of her; lid open, screensaver patterns zig-zagging across its face. She jiggled her finger on...Read On

Strange Flesh

Though the airship grazed the clouds, I saw fires in the streets below. A chill passed through my bones as the scent of charred flesh defiled my senses.

I’ve Got The Trains To Keep Me Company

A young woman discovers that her Grandma was a naughty girl in her day.

The most depressing thing about my grandmother’s death was that she had outlived all of her children and three of her grandchildren. I guess that’s the price you pay for living to one hundred and eight. My mother was a very late-in-life baby. She was born when grandma was forty-four. She said it was hard growing up because grandpa – her dad – had died in a farm accident just before she was...Read On
