Flash Fiction Friday 1-14-10: "Service with a Smile"
Olivia pulled her head out from under the bonnet of the Mustang and rose, stretching. “Yes?”
“Um....I need a master mechanic,” the blonde standing by the garage door said tentatively. “Is that you?”
Olivia nodded. “Oh yes,” she said, liking what she saw. Dirty blonde hair, artfully tousled, hourglass figure, legs that went for approximately six miles. “Good service with a smile, that's me. What've you got that's in need of work?”
“Well, my Caddy hasn't had a good tuneup in a long, long while,” the blonde replied. Her gaze locked with Olivia's in a direct challenge. Olivia almost heard the click. Her heart started hammering.
“Oh, you don't have to worry, I'll take care of that,” Olivia said. “Change your oil, put some acid in your battery, stop your radiator from steaming. Trust me, I'll lubricate you good.”
Oh, shit. Betrayed by lust. She went crimson. “It! I'll lubricate it good! I, um. Oh geez.”
The blonde moved in as Olivia fumbled. “Shut up,” she said, almost kindly. “I liked it better the first way.” She licked her lips, and her hands slid down Olivia's back to her ass.
Your challenge for today was to use the picture above and write a flash fiction of 153-208 words. Additionally, I provided a key phrase I wanted to see used somewhere in the submission:
"...a good tuneup..."
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).
Special Bonus Director's Commentary Track:
I'd been toying with the idea of writing a piece that was all mechanical innuendo, phrase after phrase, getting as dirty as I could get without ever using the "real" words. I kept putting it off because for once my copious imagination was deserting me; I couldn't come up with decent scenarios to save my life.
Then Rozewolf sent me this photo with a couple of others, and the second I saw it I knew I had my garage piece. Since it was a Caddy in the pic, I also drew heavily from Johnny Winter's awesome blues tune "Master Mechanic", to the point of stealing many of the phrasings from the lyrics. Maybe it's cheating, but I choose to call it a homage. That's my excuse, anyway. I was too busy to get anything more detailed done this week. God, how I hate it when real life gets in the way of my playtime.
