Is It Getting Hot In Here Valentine's Blog Hop...



Inside the club, techno music spun in the air, the bass line vibrating to my bones. Bodies danced like they were connected at the hip, sliding and slithering around each other. Neon lights bounced off the walls, making me feel like I was trapped in an eighties music video.
Through the pulsing room, I saw him. His long body stood in the middle of the space, his silhouette dark against the paler black around him. The light cast shadows on his face, accenting his hollow cheeks and clear-cut bones. And although he appeared relaxed, his mouth was set tight, tension strumming down him like a taut string.
I pushed my way through the crowd, feeling as if I were walking in slush. His heavy-lidded eyes lifted and met mine, open with curiosity. He studied me for a moment, intensity stretching between us, so thick, it blazed over my skin like mini firecrackers.
We stood there, inches apart, bodies bumping into us, pushing us closer. The music seemed to die away, like we had stepped into a bubble, though the bass line still pounded underneath my skin. He continued to stare, some strong emotion playing behind his gaze.
Then something changed. His eyes darkened and his mouth curved upward into a crooked smile.
That’s when he seized me. By the mouth. His lips moved over mine, rough, angry. He gripped the back of my head and forced me closer. Something splintered deep in the chambers of my heart and warmth poured through me like blood from a chest wound. I gripped the sides of his face and brought his mouth closer to mine. He responded, matching my ferocity with every brush, every stroke.
I couldn’t get enough. The feel of his mouth on mine was hot, delicious. His lips were demanding, consuming, without forgiveness. Finally, he tore the kiss away and I felt as if half of me had been ripped apart.
“Happy Valentine’s Day,” he whispered, before dipping his head back to mine.

Bahahaha!!! Was that ending cheesy??? I really was being serious until the end there... Anyway, it's always fun to have a reason to write a short blurb here and there--and you never know when you might use prompts like this in a project ;) Hope you enjoyed. Thanks to Cassie Mae  and Hope for putting this fun Hop together! 

Red. Head. Out. :D

  14. Hey,

    Well-written, you :)

    That was great (ManCard skitters away in tears :) I am soooo not good at the gooey, romance stuff... but it might be fun to try, 'cos I'm so bad, if that makes sense.

    PS... not sure if I've already said thanks for posting the "Got Green?" button, but nothing wrong with making sure you know I appreciate it!

  15. I liked it! I think this kind of scene just lends itself to being cheesy. I thought mine was cheesy, too, but it works just the same. Great entry!! I'm a new follower via the bloghop!

  20. I love how the bass line stays constant, it really brings the club scene to life. This is like every lonely single girl's dream, and maybe a few not so single ladies' dreams for a night out, too. LOL. I like it :) Mine is some serious cheese, but that's what makes the day so yummy.

  21. " Something splintered deep in the chambers of my heart," that's soooooo cool. Lots of hot, heavy tension between these two. Thanks for the chuckles about the cheesy ending. I thought it was fine, but your "Bahahaha!" and comment made it fun. Love your voice.
