Flash Fiction Friday 3-4-11: "A Learning Experience"

(Image source: "Schlampenfieber" by Ben Marcato; all websites I have found for Ben are currently down)

“Please, Mistress,” he begged. “I can't.......breathe.......”

“Shut up!” she snarled. Her thighs were burning, straining to hold this ridiculous position. He was paying her for this?

She slapped his face, realizing simultaneously that she was starting to slip. She lost her balance and slid forward. There was a sharp crack and suddenly his head dangled loosely, lifeless.

Shit. Apparently being a domme really wasn't for her.

Your challenge for today was to use the picture above and write a flash fiction of 40-70 words. Additionally, I provided a key phrase I wanted to see used somewhere in the submission:

"...a sharp crack..."

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: 

Surprise! There's more to being a domme than one would guess, I imagine. Never having been into the whole pain vs. pleasure thing, I can nevertheless appreciate that you've got someone else's body in your care, and possibly their life as well if you're playing around with binding or erotic asphyxiation or anything else that presents real danger. I have no doubt that there are plenty of doms (and dommes) out there that know what they're doing, and take plenty of care with their victims. But what would happen, I wondered, if a housewife was trying to indulge her fantasies and discovered that she wasn't very good at it?

Naturally, from there it was just a quick jump from "she's not very good at this and she's not enjoying it" to "she screws up big-time and the guy pays the price". I don't know, maybe I've got a pessimistic outlook on life. Okay, I tell a lie, I already know I do.

Next week's offering will be more cheerful, I promise. At least the photo will be more bright and sunny. Flying Spaghetti Monster only knows where I might go with even a bright and sunny photo these days....

Please note that this week, as for the past few weeks, I am trying something different with the participants list. If you are playing along this week, please leave your link below. It will appear in the text of the post itself, not in the comments, so everyone that's playing will be listed here. This frees me from having to chase people down to find out if they're playing or update the Friday post several times for late entries. We'll see how this works out.

In any case, the participants list is below. Go check them out, and thanks to all who played along.

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.

Ooh, ooh, first! Yay! Honestly, this made me giggle, but I'm a sick monkey. Since it dovetailed so nicely with my view of the picture too, plus the phrase, I'm forced to conclude that I'm in good company ;) As I get older, I am less and less interested in doing anything more than fantasizing about strange positions. Give me a nice soft bed and some comfortable body postures any day.

I have to admit I almost went the same way, Panser. Had the whole D/s thing gone wrong until I decided to translate the name of the picture. One of the hazards of speaking a foreign language. After that, I couldn't think of anything else. My partner speaks German also and he giggled, so I called it good.

Dark(er) can be funny too! I had a laugh at this one. I could see something like this happening to me (hopefully without the end result here; more like falling or injuring someone).

It's no mystery that I like taking the dark side of FFF, but ouch, you win this time.

I love hearing the stories, probably urban legends, of kinky sex gone wrong (batman hitting his head on the ceiling fan, missing gerbils, finger traps that worked too well), but then you get real stories like David Carradine and others where playtime goes horribly wrong.

I will admit to wondering how it would go in a Law and Order episode where the housewife tries to explain the dead husband in the living room.

LOL, nicely done. What is a cracked sternum between friends or playmates?
