Friday Fictioneers: After The Sangria…

friday-fictioneersWelcome to Friday Fictioneers, the best flash fiction in town! Each week– on Wednesday, not Friday, writers from all over the world throw their hats in the ring, and respond to a photo prompt. Rochelle Wisoff-Fields leads our merry band, and this week Sandra Crook provided the muse. Join us or check out other stories, on Rochelle’s blog, Addicted to Purple.

My story this week is a continuation from the prompt two weeks ago. It stands alone, but if you want to read part one, check it out here. Positive or constructive criticism are always welcome.

Let’s face it; his accent is what got me. Call me easy; call me a slut, but I came here to forget the divorce– it worked. Mostly. You don’t forget a fifteen-year marriage by sleeping with one Spaniard; but frankly, an exotic lover’s a major jump-start to recovery.

After fifteen years, three of them fighting, sex with Jimmy was like six-day old baguettes: stale and unappetizing. Alvaro was fresh, exciting…delicious. His hand on my leg, then under my skirt, was a game-changer; his playful “Fanthy a rrroll in de hay” sealed the deal. That lisp, who could resist?

    Who could resist, indeed. Terrific way to forget about what’s his name. Nicely done, Lady.


    • Thanks Honie… in my other writing life, I’m actually quite good at, ahem, erotic writing. On FF, I try to keep it clean. 😉 As soon as I saw that hay bale, I heard the words: “fancy a roll in the hay?” The story started there.


  2. helenmidgley says:

    Has Alvaro got a brother? 😉


  3. Adam Ickes says:

    Didn’t I kill that Spaniard off a couple months back? They must share DNA with cockroaches. Guess I’ll have to try again…


  4. Sandra says:

    Six day old baguettes… such an appetising prospect. 🙂 Nicely done.


  5. Cathy Ulrich says:

    Fun, Dawn. Love the taste similes!


  6. Good writing as always Dawn.


  7. DCTdesigns says:

    “Yeths yeths I do!” Thank you for continuing the saga of groove getting. I need a little fantasy in my otherwise romance-less life. After my divorce I got mine back via a younger man. Nothing like remember what prime feels like.


  8. susanissima says:

    I’m awake! ¡Qué dulce es tu escritura erótica, Dawnisima!


  9. What a great story! Hope she has a ton of fun with the Spaniard… and beyond 😉


  10. I love this: “sex with Jimmy was like six-day old baguettes”, although six-day old baguettes are hard. 🙂 And that’s about as risque as I get. Appreciate you keeping FF clean. 🙂



  11. K.Z. says:

    haha i love this continuation!! entertaining from start to finish. i liked the hilarious comparison of sex to six-day old baguettes 🙂


  12. hugmamma says:

    Awesome tale of moving on…and sex! What more is there…


  13. Dee says:

    What a great start to my day!
    Loved this Dawn, I’ll never look at a baguette the same way again!!
    Well done and thanks for your kind comments too.


  14. Querida Dawn,

    I work in a bakery. Now those baguettes will take on a whole new meaning. 😉 This story is definitely part of the upper crust. ¡Muy bien, hermana!




  15. I am, of course, shocked! The way women use we men.


  16. Helena Hann-Basquiat says:

    Okay… I feel a bit slutty for thinking this, but I really thought you were going to finish this sentence: “You don’t forget a fifteen-year marriage by sleeping with one Spaniard; ” with “to really forget it takes three Spaniards.”


  17. El Guapo says:

    I wonder if, like sex on a sandy beach, sex in hay is as good in reality as it is in fantasy.


  18. camgal says:

    Hmm, the best way to get over someone is to get under a better one right? Nice story 🙂


  19. pattisj says:

    You are too much! I’m not going to say another word. 😉


  20. Hala J. says:

    Six-day-old baguettes…I’m gonna have to use that sometime! It’s always healthy to have a little bit of fun, and if it’s with a sexy Spaniard with a lisp, who could possibly blame you?


  21. atrm61 says:

    “No,hay priths”,would have been my answer,lol!A wonderfully entertaining story,loved it:-)


  22. MissTiffany says:

    Fabulous, as usual. Love the comparison to the sex day old baguettes.


  23. Amy Reese says:

    A saucy one today, Dawn! love it. I’m hearing Spanish guitar in the background.


  24. Interesting man this Alvaro. I’ve always found something kind of sexy about those Spaniards and Italians 😀


  25. unfetteredbs says:

    six-day old baguettes: …haaa

    Can’t wait to read more of this story.


  26. Ha. is it only a lisp it takes… what a disaster to tell the trick
