It was the hardest thing she'd ever done, but the promise of reward was glorious. Was her flesh as strong as her spirit, or would she fall to pieces, betrayed by her traitor body?
First she was stripped, ruthlessly, roughly, shivering with shock. Then her wrists were yanked back – exquisite agony! – and the rough hemp twined about her arms and torso, cutting cruelly, rasping the raw edges of desire. Then placed just so – limbs angled, head down.
Cramped and trembling, aching with need, dreading and anticipating what came, she awaited her awakening. Footsteps drew near, heralding her doom and salvation.
Your challenge for today was to use the picture above and write a flash fiction of 99-103 words. Additionally, I provided a key phrase I wanted to see used somewhere in the...ahem...submission:
"...cramped and trembling, aching with need..."
Nobody's checking word counts, or for the key phrase, 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).
