Finishing up my month long Storyin12 Flash/drabbling with this September’s prompt for Sinful Sunday. I have Stan by Eminem in my head, which colored the post…
“I’d written you so many times and you never answered. Why?”
She woke to that question. He hovered over her, anger coloring his face. Trying to rise, she was stymied by ropes holding her down.
“Who…” she tried to clear the hoarse rasp from her throat. “Who are you?”
“How the fuck could you forget me?” He yelled, spit landing on her cheek as he screamed. He calmed in the next breath. “I’m your biggest fan.”
Her biggest fan? She was a barely recognized actress, one who hadn’t been on enough shows to warrant a fan.
“I tried.” He lifted a knife from a drawer beside the bed. “I tried to talk to you yesterday, but you blew me off. How could you do this to me when I’ve loved you so much?”
The last few moments before she woke up nagged at the back of her mind. She’d been leaving her agent after another disappointing casting call. A guy had bumped into her and said something…
It was a blur.
His face distorted when he saw the lack of recognition in hers.
“Of course you didn’t notice.” He grabbed a candle and lit it, mumbling things about her being a selfish bitch.
The flame flared high for a moment as he brought it over her chest. She realized then he’d stripped her naked while she’d been out. Fear formed a lump in her throat as he brought the knife down to her neck.
“I’m your biggest fucking fan and you didn’t even notice.” The blade nicked her neck. “You’ll notice me now.”
That is a powerful piece of writing and a great image.
Wow Cara – I love this piece! I love(d) Eminem growing up – I love the twist of his lyrics and your words teamed up with a seriously sexy image! Absolutely stunning! x and again, I love that shade of blue against your skin x
That song has been in my head all day! I’m glad I did it justice
I love you mix of your words and the image.
So powerful! I really hope you continue your drabblings. You are a brilliant writer, Cara. Love the image too.
I’m definitely trying to work out how to do it. I haven’t started my Smut Marathon piece so I’m trying to make sure I keep a balance.
This is a really powerful story. I just love the image toothe colour and the way that your nipple is cased in the wax
I love that song. I guess it fits in with my love of things sinister and macabre. You have totally done it justice too and I love that the picture I took of you fitted with your story so well
Ive had the song stuck in my head all day and the knife made me think it would work well for the story. Thank you, as always, for you stellar photo taking skills.
I had a feeling I wouldn’t be the only one with a wax covered nipple this week! I adore the blue of the wax and the inclusion of the blade. Also another fantastic piece of writing. I like stories that make me uncomfortable and you definitely managed that!
My writing tends to veer toward the uncomfortable. I’m glad you liked it.
Oooh…sexy and dangerous and hot, just like your story.
Dangerous and potentially deadly
Cara you have a wonderful knack of writing things that my polite brain tells me I should not love, or find arousing, but without fail the part of me that loves the dark and twisted get off on these kinds of tales you write so much. It’s a skill I admire in others so much. As for the image, well of course I love that too and as always blue just works so well with your skin tone and just make the image pop. I will stop fan girling now *hides face* xx
That’s such a great response. I can’t say I’ve had some fan girl so I’m a bit tickled. Thank you!
A wonderful image and a great story. Double pleasure! CPxx
Oh wow, I love the danger and the turn on in your writing, and the image is fantastic too! Wonderful combination!
I am a fan of that rap – once it is in your head that’s it – love the short and the photo is just gorgeous that blue always so suits you 😉 x
It was stuck in my head allll day. Made for good story writing. Thanks
Omfg you’re so clever – the image and the post both tap into my darkest fantasies, and I love wax play!
I was inspired.
Amazing post and fabulous photo. Your nipple. That blue! Xx
Oh that knife slicing the wax off has left me all squirmy.
I don’t really know the song but your story is amazing!
Cara! This is so hot. I love that song too and your take on it is so sexy!
