Crimson’s creative challenge #25

girl-on-bank-1-“Oh look at that. My luck must be in. She doesn’t know I’m here so if I just wait a while I’ll see if she’s alone. I can’t hear anyone else around. I wonder what she’s doing, shouldn’t she be in school, not sitting here all alone on the riverbank. That’s it, I’m going to sneak up behind her. If I stay really quiet she probably won’t notice until I’m right behind her. That will be a shock but so much fun when I see the reaction on her face and hear her gasp. I won’t hurt her but she doesn’t know that. Right here we go, slowly now, slowly, keep low and don’t make a noise. Oh no, she’s heard me, she’s turning round.”

“Ruffles, you naughty dog, what are you doing here? Did someone leave the gate open? Give me a hug and then I’ll take you home.”

#SoCS 27th April 2019 #limerick #xp

There was a young teenager from Lee

whose breasts grew exponentially

with each day that passed

she needed new bras

it became rather embarrassing you see.

a word with so much meaning

oft-times menacing

Cheering only to owners,

shareholders and Directors

final act of devotion,

only memories remain

in that void once filled with love.

overactive tongue

guaranteed compliance with

the order’s vow of silence

only way to save his speech,

a plastic voicebox.

WHAT DO YOU SEE? MARCH 19/2019 An evening with Larkin.

F12F695C-3BA5-4FA4-8A0E-D01429E70635Philip put on his coat and hat. With the rather old but still functional library ladder tucked under his arm he walked out to the now quiet high street. Elated, he realised that the clear night sky held the promise of a stargazing bonanza.

Leaning the ladder against the old viaduct wall and ignoring the stark warning, bright in black on the mud-hued brick, he slowly started to climb. After fifteen minutes he found no inspiration so with a loud sigh he climbed down.

He shuffled home to his apartment. The thought of a tumbler of whisky while listening to a jazz record afforded him much pleasure.

Twittering Tales #125 – 26 February 2019 #cuckold

Every picture tells a story, each crumpled sheet,  the telltale crease imprinted on each dishevelled pillow, this shrine to another night of brazen, shameless infidelity.
