Welcome to my (fairly) regular weekly Flash Fiction Friday post, where I take the prompt words left in the comments of the previous week’s FFF post and use them in a new bit of flash.
This one uses the 10 words (cucumber – olive oil – lube – aubergine – peaches – beads – whip – cage – g-string – Prince Albert) that were left in the comments of the April 13 FFF post.
Here’s a bonus picture that, yes, really does go with the short I wrote using those words!
This week’s scene continues the thread of To Love and To Cherish bonus scenes I began last October, which I added to in early March, then again a couple weeks ago. You can expand the spoiler tags if you missed them or need a refresher of the significant event that has happened in Nash and Emmitt’s life:
This new scene is told from Emmitt’s 3rd-person POV:
Jilted by his fiancé two weeks before their wedding, Nash Marino’s outlook on life in general, and love in particular, is jaded. After months of couch-surfing, Nash is fed up. He’s sick and tired of his living conditions, worn out by the demands of his nursing job, and despairs of ever finding love again. In fact, he doesn’t think he’s capable of true love. Monogamy, commitment, companionship, and regular sex…that’s all he wants, and the sooner, the better.
When Nash crosses paths with a like-minded man who’s also in need of a live-in nurse for a beloved relative, Nash figures all his problems are solved. Matters are complicated by a freak accident and amnesia. When Nash’s marriage of convenience scheme is muddied by notions of love after his memory reboot, will their plans go awry, or will Nash’s new outlook on life be just what the doctor ordered?
