Fantasy Flash Fic #1: Sensual
Strands shift between my fingertips when they slip behind the shelf of your ear. Sunlight makes its veins red accents in gold, this close. The lock slides between my fingers like time, almost silver where light bounces in its darkness.
Warmth cups my hand and your head. Shoulder dips when I lean, a quarter profile in the glare of your screen, dimmed by the window. Calluses rough where they grasp my palm, squeeze and release.
I bring it back up and am caught before I reach your shoulder again. I smile. You sigh. I straighten up.
I stare while you turn back to work, itch crawling down my palm.
Hair comes loose and I have to have it again, you the balloon to my excited child. Your fingers release the keys and you pause, before inclining your head towards my hand.
Trying a different kind of exploration 🙂
