Friday Fictioneers-Sweet Summer Sweat


“…There is the heat of Love, the pulsing rush of Longing, the lover’s whisper, irresistible—magic to make the sanest man go mad.”
Homer, The Iliad

Young lovers kiss each other in the darkness of a sultry night. Their bodies laced together and covered with a sheen of sweat. Breathless from loving with wild abandon. Philippe reaches for Erec’s hand, brings it to his lips and kisses it tenderly. Lips meet and their bodies press more closely to each other. Continuing their lovemaking on a bed made only with a satin sheet. A fan blows humid air over them and they shiver with delight.

Standing at his post, Philippe tries desperately to suppress the smile that crosses his lips while remembering the details of last night.

  1. My my…don’t I know exactly what you are talking about! And without anyone thinking this is too much information, a young guard on duty had better not let his dreams wander too far, as he cannot ‘adjust himself’ when standing perfectly still..that I know, and is just a funny fact…

  2. I used to be an art school model. One time one of my fellow models and I were chatting. He mentioned how it would be a little easier to be a woman than a man modeling nude if you got the occasional randy thought (which sometimes happened to ease boredom, and was not at all related to the modeling itself.) I understood his point!

  3. I think this is an excellent story, Renee.
    I think I would substitute ‘satin’ for ‘fitted’ for the sheet… I think ‘fitted breaks up the poetry of your description if their lovemaking. I got a ‘shiver’ when I read it.
