Friday Fictioneers 12th January 2018

Join me in Rochelle’s challenge this week:

Here is the photoprompt courtesy of Victor and Sarah Potter.
He offered her a gown made from the finest silken thread.
It shimmered with a thousand diamond dew drops woven into the bodice.
She eased it off the hanger, slipped it over her lithe frame.
It fitted perfectly.
As the evening wore on and the room temperature rose, the dress grew sticky and tight across her chest.
Unable to breathe, she collapsed into his arms on the dance floor.
He took her home, apologising for her alcohol intolerance.
In the moonlight, he was transformed and eight limbs easily removed the webbed sheath from her inert body.
Mother would be pleased.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
