Flash Fiction Friday with Ethan Day and SammyJo Hunt

Yes, it's time for another FFF. Today I've roped Ethan Day an SammyJo Hunt into letting me use them as subjects in this short tale. SammyJo was so gracious that she allowed me to turn her into a man for the purposes of this weeks story. I do hope you enjoy SmmyJo Hunt and Ethan Day's premiere into the world of Flashers. And don't forget to leave a comment to be entered in the HOP

“Do you think the body is buried deep enough?” Ethan asked.

“He can’t hurt you anymore.” Sam stroked Ethan’s cheek, cupping Ethan’s chin tight in his hand. “The day I met you I swore I wouldn’t let him hit you again. He’s gone forever.”

“You’re too good to me.” Ethan stepped close to Sam and ran his fingers down Sam’s bare chest, loving that lust fired in Sam’s eyes.

“Someone will miss him.” Ethan toyed with the waistband of Sam’s underwear.

“I’ve got it covered, babe.” Sam wrapped his arms around Ethan, hugging him tight.

Ethan pulled down Sam's underwear. “I’m ready.”

I hope you enjoyed today's flash. Please thank Ethan and SammyJo for being such good sports they had no idea what I had planned for the Flash or that they would be suspects in a crime investigation, but let's pray they actually did bury the body deep enough. Check out more Flash Fiction Friday.

As You Are

Operation Danny...that’s all bartender and recent college graduate Julian Hallowell has had on his mind the past year. Julian may have no idea what he wants to do with his life, but he definitely knows he‘s in love with the boy next door: the next door down the hall to be exact, housing his roommate and used textbook store owner Danny Wallace.

While Julian has done his level best to make Danny fall for him, all his hard work has been in vain. Danny doesn’t seem to view Julian as anything other than a roommate and friend. So when new guy in town Andy Baker asks him out on a date, Julian can’t think of a good reason to say no.

Instead, he institutes a Reverse Operation Danny plan, which he’s positive will purge all thoughts of love and lust for his roomie out of his head. He’s ready to move on and start looking for his next Mr. Right, and Andy just might fit the bill. But has he given up too soon?

A Wicked Encounter by SammyJo Hunt

Christopher Allwyne, Duke of Bellwood, stood to inherit a vast fortune. Still reeling from the loss of his parents and most recently, his Aunt Polly, the Duchess of Bellwood, the young noble found himself traveling in the dark of night to oversee Her Grace's funeral proceedings and to attend the reading of his aunt's will. Along the way, his carriage suffers a devastating accident, and a dark stranger comes to his aid and rescue. The Marquis Evan de Lombard, rich French nobleman, takes an instant interest in the handsome Christopher. Sharing a wicked encounter shortly after meeting, things look promising as love blooms between them. That is, until the Marquis reveals his true identity and purpose.

Once Christopher knows the truth, will he ever be able to forgive Evan and love him, despite the man's indiscretions? Torn apart by dishonesty, can love win out over betrayal and rise to the occasion, reuniting them for a lifetime of happiness? The cost for true love could be a price neither one is willing to pay.

Aw, this was a really nice post. In idea I would like to put in writing like this additionally – taking time and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and by no means seem to get something done.
