This is a piece I’ve written for Flash Fiction For Aspiring Writers – a weekly photo prompt for writers. Write 100-150 words (give or take 25 words). The purpose is to have fun while improving our writing skills. Yay to that and thanks to Priceless Joy for hosting this weekly prompt. Please drop by to read and/or participate…it’s a great help to many of us to have these sorts of prompts and a great deal of work for the host. Thank you so much, PJ.

“Stop that now Heather!”

“What do you mean?” I brushed my body against his.
“It’ll be dark soon.” Austin nibbled at my ear.
I chuckled and clutched my flashlight. It had a moonlight mode.
