#VignetteSeries – Arizona Evenings

Author's Note: It was hot! 'Nuff said.

"Skin to skin," she purred.
I wasn't as good with women as they were with me so grew queasy when she narrowed her eyes and grinned a salacious grin. Like a starved cat thrown in a cage full of mice, she licked pouting, ruby lips and extended her claws.
It was just too hot for it, so goddamn hot!
I slapped across the tiled floor, drew back the ochre curtains and stared out over the desert. A warm, sandy wind scoured my skin doing nothing to freshen the air making me wish I'd never bothered. The moon shone full and gold; it might have been daytime if not for my nocturnal guest. Another Arizona evening.
"Bed. Now."
I heard her as if in a dream, a lone voice calling through the chaos of the inferno. Ah well, I thought, as I wiped the sweat from my forehead. Someone's got to do it. I just wished it wasn't so hot. Not yet, anyway.

  1. LOL – its spring here in Arizona right now, so not so hot yet. We will hit 80s this week if not the 90s. Great post, just one thing, though, its not really sandy in most of the state, our desert has a find powder like dust that gets everywhere.

  2. Ah, well, we all do that. =) I live in Apache Junction, here is a shot of my view of Superstition Mountain. I take my dogs hiking here at least 5X a week. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Superstitionmountain.jpg

    I’ve really found your VignetteSeries inspiring and am trying to get more of my own creative writing out there. I’ve got two flash-fiction series in development and planning on posting the first chapter of my current project The Wizard of Yonkers soon. How do you choose what goes into your VignetteSeries? Do you write specifically for it?

    • I’m lucky T, J, I’ve enough spare writing kicking around to last for years LOL
      I just try to find half-decent bits from it to post.
      I hope you enjoy posting your own because that’s the main thing.
