First Campaigner Challenge
For me, Monday usually comes with its own set of challenges, especially if I've stayed up late the night before. However, there are some challenges I welcome.
The First Campaigner Challenge started today in the form of a 200 word story with a beginning of Shadows crept across the wall. For a bonus the story should be exactly 200 words (excluding the title), include orange, and end with everything faded.
So below is my entry for the challenge.
The Promise of Night
By Ann Cory
Shadows crept across the wall beyond the reddish-orange flames that flickered like a beacon. Peyton lay in wait, her bare flesh warm against the cool satin sheets. Sprigs of lavender on her bedside table infused the air with its soothing scent, while the moon dimmed its ethereal beams.
As the shadows neared, her pulse skipped.
Eyes closed, she stretched her body and welcomed the feathery kisses along her skin. A smile tipped her lips. The promise of a night bathed in pleasure, mere moments away. Aware of movement on either side of her, she tensed. Trails of heated splendor ran the length of her thighs. Unseen hands awakened and aroused her inch by inch.
Peyton released a soft moan. They were skilled lovers and knew what she liked, wanted, desired. They knew where to touch, tease, and taunt. She didn’t know why they’d chosen her. She didn’t care. Loneliness no longer plagued the hours before dawn.
Arms stretched above her head, she played the submissive. Body arched, she melted at the parting of her thighs. Tonight her ravenous appetite would be sated.
As she opened her eyes, the sun painted the walls in buttery shades, and with it, everything faded.
Whew! Such fun :)
