Lying next to her, he traced the curve of her back as she sat on the edge of their bed tying her Mizunos.

Encircling her waist with his arm, he rolled her on top of him, giving her an affectionate smack on the ass.

“They say, making love burns more calories than walking.”

“Yeah? I walk for an hour and a half at a strenuous pace the entire time. Can you get my pulse racing, hard, for a full 90 minutes?”

He released his embrace, hands up in surrender.

“That’s what I thought. Maybe you can be my cool down.”

This week’s Studio30 Plus prompt is “Love – sexual passion or desire.”
The 100 Word Challenge is to tell a story in only 100 words. This week’s theme is “Smack”

  2. This made me laugh so hard Tara. The descriptive language you used was great, but the overall gist of the conversation had me laughing.
