The Ride (Conclusion)


It’s been a blast participating in Trifecta’s one-year anniversary celebration. It truly is a wonderfully supportive and immensely creative writing community that I’m happy to have found.

Our celebration challenge was, as a two-person team, to finish a 38-word story editor Joules started way, way back in Trifecta’s infancy. Lumdog graciously kicked it off for our team with the first 100 words and boy did he! I followed with another 100 words to complete it.
Here is our story called “The Ride”.


Charts and optimal dates and preferential temperatures. One line or two. As if she could summon whatever it is that makes up the human soul as easily as she could a cab on a busy New York avenue.


To Matt, all that scientific stuff sounded like bullshit; he just missed her too much! He hired a limo to pick up Becky at La Guardia and planned a romantic night in Manhattan.  They kissed as she got in the limo.  But he couldn’t keep his hands off her; he ran his hand up her thigh, past the hem of her short, black skirt. He kissed her neck and breasts and progressed until his lips met his fingers, her skirt now being up around her waist. As Becky slid down in the seat, he placed his weight on her body.


********************
Waiting at baggage, Becky rewound the painful conversations with Matt. Couldn’t they forget all the crap and just get after it? Like before. Like always. So much angst, when all she really wanted was to touch him without thinking about “babies”. She missed him too much.
Walking out, a text came through. “ In limo, on your left!” Chills coursed through her!
No thought of babies, Becky yanked open the door; Matt pulled her in. His lips found hers immediately. Hungry mouths. Touching. Everywhere. She enthusiastically gave herself to him.

They made a baby before crossing the bridge into Manhattan.

    1. If it were only that simple...well, maybe not!

      You should check out Trifecta it's a very fun community of writers (and I love the shorter word counts...but that is sometimes tough too.). Great challenges!

    3. For those two...never. They are immune from all that real life stuff because we will write them as perenially hot for each other.

    1. Yes, there are lots of ways. All fun. I simply followed lumdog's stellar lead. I never would have gone there myself ;-)

    2. Well Gina, you were certainly egging me on. ;) Maybe next time, we go for an X rating?

      Delete
    3. I conveniently don't remember that part. Well...before X there are R and NC-17 ratings to deal with. One step at a time, lumdog. Actually, they may never allow us to pair up again out of fear of what we'll do.
