Friday's Flash: In the Garden of the Mariposa

Friday means time for a quick and delightful bit of flash fiction!

"Friday Flash" is a project by a sexy and creative group of authors, inspired each week by a photo to write a snippet of fiction, 100 words or less.  This week's photo carries so much promise....

Muffy Wilson's photo. 

Inspired by the above, I give you:

In the Garden of the Mariposa 

Her gardens, a sanctuary of  butterflies, were the stuff of legend: to get home, he would have to pass through them, a task much deadlier than any would guess. 

He didn't see her until she revealed herself: a lithe, lovely body stretching languidly in the grass, newly awaken from a sunny afternoon nap. She opened her eyes to gaze at him; they were the color of fiery rubies.

"Elvyn Knight," she exhaled. Her body moved with clear suggestion. "Have you come to try and steal my wings?"


Be sure to check out our other Friday Flashers! It's a great day for some short, sexy samples of some wonderful work!
