“An Oriental Lily”: #StaD May; Day Ten

The Prompt:

  • The chance encounter. Have you ever run into someone you know when you look grubby? Or maybe you see an old boyfriend at Starbucks. Or perhaps, as in Alfred Hitchcock’s famous Stranger’s On a Train, you run into a stranger who offers to do you a service, like murder, in return for you returning the favor. Think of a chance encounter that could leave you shaken, stirred, or in deep trouble.

Standard disclaimer. I don’t own them, I don’t profit from them, but they insist on telling me their stories, so I’m sharing them with you.

  • Corona

  • Pleasure Knot

  • Overproof Rum

  • Thought Diary

  • Illustrated

  • Oriental Lily

  • Tortuous

  • Flaming

  • Seared

And now I offer you…

“An Oriental Lily”

Trip wanted a man cave to hide in, but all he’s got is Jon’s couch. But Lizzie had gotten him good and drunk on overproof rum and Corona. “Dream of that gooey cream filled eclair you’re pretending you’re not mooning over.”

“She’s no eclair. She’s an Oriental lily…” Couldn’t muster more thoughts; sleep pulled him into his illustrated parchment thought diary; the role play of his dreams. She ran through mist, stitching new threads into his soul, tying them with pleasure knots of desire. She was seared into him, a flaming flower, a tortuous dream he might never see again.

Will Trip’s dream be a pleasant one?

Will he ever encounter her again?

Will Lizzie figure out who his “Oriental lily” is?
Is Trip shaken, stirred, in deep trouble – or all of them?

Any guesses?
