Yeah Write #40: Flame On (#flashfiction)

“Easy with that,” she says, pointing a spork at the unmarked, red bottle.

He scoffs.

Susie smirks.

One bite.  Two.  Three.

A glossy brow, glassy eyes, and gaping nostrils spell a silent, smouldering secret.

“Just the way” — Gus gasps — “I like it.”

      I had no idea you could buy /metal/ sporks. I don’t know why they aren’t part of our regular cutlery 😛

      It’s based in part on an incident with my husband when we were first dating. 🙂

        Too funny! I had a friend once who wasn’t happy until he’d had enough jalepenos to cause rivulets of sweat to run down his reddened face.

    I like the alliteration. I definitely have made that same mistake–and not admitted I overdid it, although I was coughing and gasping.
