Take Seven: 3rd September

It’s Friday!

Welcome to my Take Seven compilation which incorporates all 21 words (or derivatives) from the Three Things Challenge for the past week.
You are most welcome to join in using as many or all of the words too. Just pingback to this post and then leave a link to your post in the comments so that I can see it and respond directly.
As always, have fun, and I hope you enjoy this effort,  which is nothing to do with my dentist appointment last week in case you thought it might be!!

Our words were:
blood, buff, gel, laugh, mask, numb, poke, pound, press, rinse, scrape, screen, shake, stain, sweat, tap, teeth, tickle, tissue, tremble, water
It was a blood moon and she let her mask fall as the coolness of the night numbed her skin. Lying in the buff beside him, desire made her body tremble.
The breeze tickled as his teeth gently scraped her ear, tapping into her senses.
Pressing into her, two hearts started to pound as their bodies began to gel in perfect harmony.
Replete in his arms, she stretched, her toes poking through the grass lining the river bank.
He slept.
She dove into the water to rinse off the sweat of their passion, then stood watching him.
Shaking the droplets from her hair, they cast a rainbow of moisture in the moonlight.
She dressed, the screen of her persona back in place, a sad laugh caught in her throat.
Their love wasn’t meant to be, but she would remember this night and how her child was conceived.
She left a tissue stained with her kiss on his chest, and quietly walked away, knowing they would never meet again.

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.

    A chill love – no way to start or end a relationship with deception and abandonment….
