First drafts – A few pages in the large wilderness of the world of writing

99-word fiction – The face

She lay on the bed and he kissed her again.  She was beautiful.  Her face, that face, as smooth as morning ice, her complexion airbrush perfect and those eyes, deep and black as mineshafts, stalked him around the room. He was reduced to switching off the light before undressing and only when he was under the duvet would he turn the light back on, and there she was, a remote smile always on her face. He couldn’t go on like this, she had to go, permanently.

He bent down and kissed the cover of Vanity Fair one last time.

  1. Ahahahahaha! Best post I have read in ages. Seriously! Thanks for the laughs on a very trying Monday afternoon 🙂

  2. Good morning Mituri, thank you, I really appreciate that. Salma Hayek’s eyes followed me out of the shower one day, and the idea just stuck 🙂
