Flash Fiction Friday

Welcome to this week’s Flash Fiction Friday. A picture may be worth a thousand words but not for us. We have a picture about which we write a story of 100 words, no more and no less. I am joined by some fabulous writers today who give their take on a picture. To see the picture and the other members click this blog link: Flasher Fiction Friday

I held in my snicker as Dan’s strong hands massaged the knots from my tense muscles. His plan wasn’t going to work, but I would enjoy the attention while it lasted.
Silly, devious man!
His talented fingers knew exactly how to play my body. I was wise to his motives this time and he wasn’t going to get his way no matter how glorious he would make me feel. When he stopped his attentions and returned to snuggle up beside me, I muttered, “This isn’t going to change my mind. It’s still your turn to clean out the litter box.”

Oh you made me laugh. Excellent! I wonder if he managed to get out of cleaning the litter box any other way?

Ha! Can't blame him for trying, maybe he can do something else to get out of it!

Ha! He should have kept going, not that she would have given in ;) Love that last line, it's so cheeky
When I got pregnant the first time my hubs took over kitty litter duty. My kids just turned 6 and 3 this week. The hubs finally asked about 6-months ago if I would start helping again. He was so good about it, I had to give in. Boo, I should have asked for the massage, lol

Oh, that was perfect! But I would have had him love me first, then tell him. You made me laugh with this one. :)
