“Is there...anything...else I can help you with, sir?” Monika purred.
He looked at her, expressionlessly, picturing her in his mind's eye. Saw, as clearly as day, her perky breasts, rose-red nipples, ribcage standing out in sharp relief, smooth curve of hips, flat belly, sooty smudge of dark-blonde pubic hair already glistening with her excitement. The picture-girl bent over the desk and waggled her ass at him; defiantly, she awaited his command.
Suddenly he was tired of it, all of it. He laughed, but it came out strained, forced, rough with suppressed rage. “Monika, my dear,” he said tersely, “you're very direct, but you just don't have what it takes.”
She looked puzzled. Had she ever been rejected before? Probably not. “I don't understand.”
“You don't have a cock,” he heard himself say. And knew their comfortable dynamic was gone for good.
Her eyes went round. “I...but you're....you....ohmygod.” She swayed on her feet. “I...I'm sorry, I didn't....”
“Just get out,” he said wearily, and she fled. He swung around and stared, unseeing, out the office window.
Your challenge for today was to use the picture above and write a flash fiction of 128-188 words. Additionally, I provided a key phrase I wanted to see used somewhere in the submission:
"...defiantly, she awaited [his/her] command..."
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).
