Friday 55

Fingers grip me, tender, rough, urgent. Breath comes in gulps between the moans. Her body glistens with sweat. My hands slide under her, grip her shoulder, brings her closer. She gasps. She pushes. Her body falls limp. I grip her hand. The baby’s cry pulls me away. Tears of mourning fall on tears of life.

55 Friday is becoming as much of an attraction as Dar Wednesday!

Thanks, but how do you know until you try, Carrie?
C'mon...let's see what you got! :D

Thanks, Lime. I have to admit it's getting harder each week to make a statement with so little to work with.

I appreciate that, Breazy. You have a good weekend too!

Is this where I'm supposed to make a comment about men not being able to sustain the excitement?

I am joking. But these are a refreshing twist on your posts, for as long as they last.

Sub offer on the blog for today only if you’re interested.

As I’m on a week’s holiday and spending it at home, a game is also on offer if interest is high enough. You’ll need to leave a comment if you want a game to run this week. The game will run from tomorrow until Friday.

#1.
