Welcome to #Tantalising Tuesday
A picture of our own choice,
Who dares, wins...
“Must we?” Charlotte stared at Jake and watched as he raised one eyebrow in query to her question. God he did it so well, damn him.
“You’re asking me that?” he said incredulously. “You know the answer.”
She shuffled uneasily on her seat. Damn, it was bloody hard, why on earth hadn’t she grabbed a cushion. At this rate she’d end up with piles as well as everything else.
“Well,’ she mumbled, “I just wondered, you know, if it was really necessary?”
He shrugged. “Sweetness, can you hear yourself? Really? If we don’t, what do you think the outcome will be? Remember the time we decided not to do it?” He shook his head. “Messy. Very, very, messy.”
Oh Charlotte remembered all right. After that they’d both decided to do what had to be done. Not to moan or prevaricate but just get on with it.
She sighed. “Oh okay, but no cheating.”
“I never cheat.”
“Hah so you say. I’m not so sure. She wriggled and got into position. ‘Right, I’m ready.” She put her hand up and Jake clasped it.
“So,” he said. “We’re agreed? Best of three, arms wrestled flat to the table?”
“Loser does the dishes.”
