Flash Fiction Friday 7-2-10: "Exploration"
“Go on,” Sara said, affecting calm, though she was trembling like a leaf in a windstorm.
Vanessa bent closer, her lips parted, pulse pounding, head spinning. She couldn't believe how frightened she was, or how turned on. The combination was weirdly disconcerting. Her stomach did a slow roll and her heart followed suit. Her breath caught in her throat.
“Please...” Sara whimpered. All the sensations in her body seemed focused on her left breast, taut with wanting, the nipple diamond-hard. She was barely aware that she was sitting in a puddle.
Vanessa leaned further just a little more, and then stopped, an inch away from engulfing what she wanted so badly.
“God, I've never been more sure of anything in my life! Yes, yes, yes! I'm on fire here!”
And Vanessa closed the last infinitesimal distance, and closed her mouth over Sara's nipple, and closed the circuit, and Sara closed her eyes as a raging storm swept over her and carried her away.
Your challenge for today was to use the picture above and write a flash fiction of 72-172 words. Additionally, I provided a key phrase to use -- "...her breath caught in her throat...". Nobody's checking word counts, but you're only cheating yourself if you break the rules. Unless you're doing it to earn a spanking (in which case, see me after class).
The following people are participating this week. Why not go check out their take on this FFF?

Check back here on Monday for the next challenge! The photo was thoughtfully provided by Luna Mauvaise. I will be out of town that week so will not be around to collect names for Friday's post, but the post on Monday the 12th will have a list of everyone who played along on Friday the 9th. So please make sure you let me know. :)
