This is a challenging week to write, but I was determined not to miss a single Friday Fictioneers. I’m on a boat off the coast of Central America– Belize. It could not be more beautiful, or peaceful. There is limited wifi, and I have not sought to use it until now. This morning, I had to check the day– it’s easy to lose track of time, when you’re snorkeling with nurse sharks, sea turtles and rays all day. And that, is truly all I’ve been doing. It’s magic!
However, it’s Wednesday and I didn’t want to miss Friday Fictioneers. I love the wonderful writing community that our leader, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields provides; I make every effort not to miss it. Nice new intro, Rochelle, reminding us all that we ARE a community and should make an effort to connect, and share. That said, I will need to do most of my reading when I get home… This is the first week, that I may not be able to do the reading I usually do. I want my fellow FF to know that I try to read as many stories as possible each week; I believe in that mutual support. I, in turn, really appreciate all the time you share with me. With each of my stories, kind or constructive feedback is always appreciated.
If you want to join in or read the other great stories, check out Rochelle’s blog, Addicted to Purple. She spells it all out there. Kent Bonham provides our photo prompt this week.
Trust Me Baby
“Here this’ll help you chill.”
Neil handed the small pill to Andie, along with a shot of tequila.
“What is it?” She took a sip. “I don’t want to mess up my lines.”
He pushed a strand of hair behind her ear and leaned in closer.
“It’s your first love scene; this will just help you relax– help make it look real…” His finger traced her neck. “It could be real, baby… You know?”
I’m eighteen. “I know what I’m doing.”
She felt the pill slide down, with the strong liquid, as Neil slid his hand up her back.
