A few words

for Six Sentence Stories where the given word is Fluid.





I have waited so long for this moment.

Now, you lie before me on a stone slab, weeping in the glow of a roaring fire.

My knife is poised, I lower it, I draw the silver blade slowly across your moist skin and slice into your veins.

My body quivers with excitement as the warm crimson fluid trickles into a sparkling crystal vessel. 

I am ready.

Blue Dolcelatte cheese, warm focaccia bread and Molino di Grace Chianti Classico 2004.  Have I died and gone to heaven?

    Fun tale, Keith. Somehow it wouldn’t have the same ring to it with plastic-wrapped cheese slices, day-old sliced bread and cask red in front of a 3-bar heater. 😉

    Such a tease! I am, however, much relieved.
    Well done, you scamp!
