Out Of Her Control

Fiction Shorts word of the day: Colour

Mark walks into the kitchen dressed solely in skintight jeans. His chest is bare, as is his feet and his long hair cascades freely.

Simone turns from the sink where she’s washing the dishes and freezes. She feels the colour redden her cheeks and swears she’s practically drooling at the sight of him standing there, in all his glory.

His chest begs for her hands to discover his contours, her lips itching to taste.

Embarrassed she turns back to the dishes, berating herself for her lack of control. Her remorse heightened over the fact that he is her sister’s boyfriend.

This drabble has been written as part of the daily Drabble Drop challenge and today's random word, that must be included in the drabble, is 'colour'.

Wikipedia defines a drabble as follows :

A drabble is a short work of fiction of precisely one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity, testing the author's ability to express interesting and meaningful idea in a confined space.

My first love is poetry — it’s like a desperate need to write, to free up space in my mind, to escape the constant noise in my head. Most of the time the poems write themselves — I’m just the conduit holding the metaphorical pen.
