Ritu from But I Smile Anyway created the #Loveuary blog hop, which feels like a perfect time to explore the next three chapters of my Star Trek: Enterprise TnT fan fiction story, Love and Loss – a hundred words at a time.
I’m using word prompts for each day, randomly gathered. If you’d like to add to the pool, list your choices in the comments – bonus points if they don’t sound especially like they’d fit a science fiction story. I love a challenge!
Prompt words appear in bold, and today’s contributors are credited at the end of the post.
One more thing: Standard disclaimer applies. I don’t own these characters or the world they inhabit. They just like whispering and shouting stories into my brain, which I share with you freely, as an act of love.
“Do Me a Favor”
“Do me a favor, Trav – pass me that box with the rainbows on it.” Hoshi’s surrounded by mounds of clothing and tangled accessories.
Travis starts for the shelf she’s pointing at, but stops to pick up an extremely skimpy lace something. “What’s this?”
She laughs. “Certainly not the most comfortable-fitting bra I’ve ever owned, but it has its charms.” She comes close, like she’s going to kiss him. She snags her lingerie from him, and ducks away. “The box?”
He gets it – it’s heavy. Things thud inside it. “What’s in here?”
Hoshi grins. “Illicit love tokens from many polyamorous paramours.”
So what’s really in Hoshi’s rainbow box?
