Flash Fiction Friday 7-30-10: "Clawing for Purchase"

The heat was unbelievable, the electricity palpable, the desire tangible. He dropped his head on his chest, relishing the sizzle as her nails raked scarlet furrows down his body.

Fresh blood smells like copper. Primal thoughts stirred in his brain, dimly recalling ancient days when that scent meant either fight or flight.

Fight, then. He growled low in his throat and swept her up in his arms. In two quick movements he was pounding into her. And so it began...

Your challenge for today was to use the picture above and write a flash fiction of 60-80 words. Additionally, I provided a key phrase I wanted to see used somewhere in the submission:

"...fresh blood smells like copper..."

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).

The following people are participating this week. Go check out their take on this FFF, won't you, and thank 'em for playing along.

Advizor:  (Advizor was also overlooked last week through an error on my part; go check out last week's contribution as well).
Sephani Paige:
Slow Burn:
Luna Mauvaise:
Adam:  (Adam is new to the group; go say hello, please)

Check back here on Monday for the next challenge! And if you have any photos or artwork you'd like to see in a future challenge, please send them my way.

Naughty Lexi said...

See, this is violent but doesn't make me feel uncomfortable. Such a fine line, and you've treaded it so masterfully.

The final four sentences made me growl right along with him. Dangerously sexy, PB... xx

Bella: Thanks! I appreciate the kind words.

Snow: Apologies, but I got no notification of the comment and so I missed it before I left on Thursday afternoon. I'll add you to the list this morning.

Puss: Oh, it will. For a long time. :)

Lexi: I do try to walk the edge of what makes me comfortable sometimes. Makes things more interesting. Glad you liked!

Minx: Thanks so much for saying so! I'm delighted it affected you like that.

Goodness I've been buried in work all weekend and am only now doing my rounds properly.

Wonderful words PB, you do so know how to get a girl in the right frame of mind ;)

Re: Rex, This idea comes from the Laurell K. Hamilton Anita Blake series wherein a Rex is a were-lion and the head of his pride. His mate is Regina to his Rex. (Just thought you might find it interesting)
