Inspired by the @Zen Nudist’s review post, I’ve combined a collection of 12-word stories I’ve written throughout July at the daily Twitter hashtag #StoryIn12 (hosted by @MollysDailyKiss and @Wriggly_Kitty). Some were hot; some were not…but I had fun participating.
31 Days of Making a Short-Story Shorter…
ENLARGE: Just the thought of you / enlarges the part of me / my panties conceal. (Haiku)
CHERRY: The cherry in their cocktail, her fruit had yet to be pitted.
GRAVEL: She rode for miles with the gravel of his voice beneath her
VOYAGE: Sex was like a shipwrecked voyage, always ending with him going down.
CYLINDER: She came hard, due to / the cylindrical strength of / her hand-held vacuum. (Haiku)
RAW: Uncooked seafood repulsed him, but he couldn’t resist eating his Susie raw.
■ Slowly taking him in, she measured his aptitude for improvement in inches.
■ A foursome with three men meant she had no room for improvement.
■ An erotic onion, she removed each layer teasingly to reveal her core.
■ He’d cleaned and was chopping onions—she’d have his meatloaf later tonight.
AQUARIUM: She had an aquarium full of guppies, but yearned for a piranha.
UNDERLINE: A dexterous calligrapher, she underlined his stroke with one of her own.
■ Her button pushed, she worked his lever—creating the first Rube Goldberg.
■ Just pressing her button didn’t work; he had to really wiggle it.
FINANCE: She romanced the finances of accountants crooked in more ways than one.
VISIBLE: She’d made visible the path to ecstasy, but he was third-eye blind.
SUMMER: I feasted on abs tasting of summer, all sweat and male arousal.
BUILDING: She took communion behind buildings, on her knees…flesh on her tongue.
BRIDGE: His pillar of flesh was the land bridge between their isolated lusts.
CANDY: Not one for candy, she preferred the salty nougat made from nuts.
PRICE: He’d paid the price of admittance and was allowed to come inside.
PHOTO: His was a photo finish with two cumsluts straining neck and neck.
RELAX: Something old, new, borrowed, and blew, his mother-in-law’s pre-wedding gift relaxed him.
BRIDE: The ring he accepted from his new bride wasn’t for his finger.
SLICE: Savoring the dirty vignette she’d written, he fingered her slice of life.
PRIEST: Rasputin gave the novice a wanton priest’s communion, thickly onto her tongue.
LATE/SHEET: She awoke late, the sheet stuck to her thigh where he’d been.
LATE: Come late, I don’t mind. / My preference is to wait / notably longer. (Haiku)
SNAKE: In their threesome, she’d suck poison from the wound or the snake.
STREET: A successful sex-worker, easy street was the corner of 69th and Bush.
FAIL: Her failure to take it all in was more blessing than curse.
GREEN: She only wore kale-colored panties to ensure her greens were consumed daily.
DEVELOPING: A threesome was developing; she poured more wine and undid more buttons.
So, what do you think?
Are there one or two micro tales you’d like to see expanded into longer short-form fiction stories?
