Flash Fiction Friday - Marcus

I want to thank photographer Dan Skinner for allowing us to use this wonderful example of his work for our Flash Fiction Friday this week.

Marcus gazed at Bill, hoping he would rejoin him. Mornings were difficult. Bill left early, escaping the love nest he and Marcus had made. But with Bill still married to his wife there wasn't much Marcus could do.
"When will you tell her the truth?"
Bill sighed heavily. "Not sure."
"I feel like I'm stuck in limbo. I want more."
Bill zipped his pants. "Hey, I provide nicely for you."
Pain knifed Marcus in the chest. Bill didn't understand. Love was more than money. Maybe he should end this relationship. There had to be someone out there for him.

Please join me and read the other Flash Fiction Friday submissions. And again thanks to Dan Skinner for providing us with such a wonderful photograph to be inspired by.

I agree with Heaven! Who in their right mind leaves a man that looks like that?! Great FFF.

Nice FFF, Sara! The pain was sharp and quick. And nice use of Dan's work, too.

Marcus needs a sexier, richer lover. Bill needs a swift kick to the balls. I'm just saying.

Marcus deserves to be more than a casual f*ck. Nice FFF.
