one night stand

Post by Nia_Zolanski » Wed Feb 27, 2019 1:28 am

My view of the sketchy, hourly rate motel room disappears as a soft piece of black satin cloth covers my eyes.
“We wouldn’t want the rest of you to turn to stone, now would we?” Medusa with a hint mischief in her voice as she gently ties the blindfold around my face.

As I feel her climb on to the bed and hear her mane of serpents hiss with excitement, sudden horror and apprehension wash over me. Oh my god! Why hadn’t I thought of this before? If her hair is made of snakes...does the carpet match the drapes?

Oh. Oh oww. Yeah, that's an uncomfortable thought.

Oh wow, this one made me simultaneously laugh and cry out loud! Well done sir!

That final punch line is a really well-crafted sentence with a lot of subtle nuances. I almost wanna get that tattooed somewhere...

Ha, I like it! Great payoff, and it definitely makes one wonder what she had turned to stone in the first place. :lol:
