Written for Friday Fictioneers wonderfully handled by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields with a photo prompt by Janet Webb. Crits are welcome!!
Desiree raised a manicured eyebrow in surprise at the man who had just walked into her lounge.
‘You’ve been drinking.’ Desmond said pointedly at the glass of Sangria in her hands.
‘Oh? Join me.’ She took a languorous sip. But he ignored her sarcasm. ‘You wouldn’t take my calls’
‘Desiree, it’s Valentine, can we put our differences aside for once?’
‘Oh, you started it all.’ She flung the words at him, her beauty startling. Desire shot through him, stunning him and all the fight left him.
Taking her in his arms, he whispered. ”Desiree, let’s start afresh.’

I’m not sure if it’s win-win or lose-lose. Great little enigma.
I don’t even know myself. 🙂 An enigma indeed!

Ooooo, no murder, just love and sex! What a great Valentine’s Day story. Nice!
Desire for Desiree and Desmond’s all done–Most women want to have that kind of power over their men, and the smart men allow them to think they do. Good story.
Thank you VB!

Ah! Sweet Valentine – but tomorrow she’ll still be drinking . . .
I sincerely hope not! 🙂
Good story and nicely done. It was perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Thank you Patricia.
ah, finally some passion and romance. This week’s stories have been filled with poison and vampires. This one fans the flames of desire. Nice 🙂
Thank you Russel. I normally do not like these vampire stories though I don’t mind the poison ones. 🙂
Ahh bittersweet love… Hope they made up 🙂
That’s my hope too! 🙂
