Some flash fiction for Christmas
There is a group of ladies, and we call ourselves the Plot Bunnies. We kept each other on task and off ledges through NaNoWriMo, and, to celebrate NaNo's completion, we decided to have a flash fiction exchange for Christmas. Three prompts, 250 words.
My prompts were from my lovely friend Booknerd Becca:

Setting: A library during the holiday intercession
Topic: Awkward study date for human sexuality class

“Daniel, open your goddamned eyes and look at me.”
Slowly, I looked up. Tobias’ long, lithe body was hunched over mine, pinning me against the shelves. His moss green eyes were trained on my lips, and, before I could breathe a syllable, he was there. His soft lips against mine, his tongue in my mouth, his long fingers buried in my hair and bringing me closer.
He pulled away slightly, his heavy pants mixed with mine. “See, you silly little man. We’ve got the human sexuality thing down pat. Now come and kiss me again.”
And what does Tobias look like in my head? Oh, just the guy singing this song:
