Another 200 words for #FridayFictioneers and #FridayPictureShow

Welcome back. Today I entered to #flashfiction challenges and therefore combined the two prompts to create one 200 word story. If you don't have time to read it all, the first 100 words is for the FridayFictioneers prompt hosted by Madison Woods, and the second slightly-more-than-100 came from #FridayPictureShow hosted by Jen DeSantis. This story follows the continuing WIP adventures of my werewolf twin brothers, Nik and Chayse Wolffe in Las Vegas. Lady Aislynn is the proprietor of a very "special" club.

They followed Lady Aislynn into a room, brightly lit and decorated much like a farmyard. Fence posts of weathered wood marched along one wall, strung together with barbed wire. A large coil of extra wire hung over one post, the barbs gleaming in the “afternoon” light with sinister intent. Straw had been strewn over the floor and a pitchfork stuck out of a real haystack against a barn fa├žade.
“What exactly do you do here?” Chayse surveyed the room with disgust.
“Fantasy, Officer Wolffe, is what we do here.” Lady Aislynn gestured in a wide sweep and they spotted the other woman.
Nik grunted in surprise and Chayse bit his lips to hold in his growl.

The woman stood against the rough bark of a tree stump, with her hands restrained with thin, cotton cord. Crimson nails contrasted with her long sleeved, low-cut black t-shirt, showing enough cleavage to hide a deck of cards. Her head rested against the tree and her scarlet lips lay parted and slack.
“Is she in pain? Who did this to her?” Chayse demanded.
“Wait.” Lady Aislynn held up her hand.
A man dressed as a cowboy bandit strode into the room, spurs jangling. A Stetson shaded his eyes from the harsh light over a bandana tied around his face. One gloved hand snapped a bullwhip in the air and the woman moaned.
“Oh shit.”

Thank you for stopping by. I also want to announce the winner of Carolyn Rosewood's newest release, His Majesty's Secret.

Congratulations, Lyn! Have a great weekend and happy reading!

  4. My imagination went wild with this. Not sure what it's about but I have several theories. Fabulous how you worked in the main feature (barbed wire). Thanks for visiting mine.

  9. Strange. Reminded me of Lady Heather from the older CSI Vegas series.

    1. Thanks, Gary! That makes me really happy that you picked her because I used Lady Heather as a template for Lady Aislynn. You just made my day! Thanks for commenting. :)

  10. Bull whips are powerful enough to kill people. One Inuit in Alaska used a bull whip to kill wolves and soon used it to hunt caribou as a gun cost too much to keep up with.
    Love the combining, which is a great idea! Your stories remind me of how much people will do to satisfy others, thus enslaving themselves and their costumers to sex and fantasy (or, rather, whatever is on demand). Great imagery and depth.

    1. Also, another whip that could be used is a snake whip, which was used on slaves. A three-tailed or nine-tailed whip also works, but without the hooks or beads at the end--less likely to kill that way.

    2. Thanks for the comment. In the story, the bullwhip was only for effect, to titillate the woman tied up. Later in the action the "cowboy Dom" will use a flogger or a crop. But for this scene, it fit better for him to be carrying a bullwhip. Thanks for stopping by, :)

  12. Oh boy, what an intense scene. Nicely done. I love your use of description to set the scene.

  13. This sounds like the working out of a sexual fantasy. The bigger story sounds interesting. Really cool.

    1. Yes, this is a special club where fantasies aren't vanilla. This is Nik and Chayse's first experience with it. Thanks for stopping by. :)

  14. Great take on both picture prompts they worked seamlessly together. I like the implications of the fantasy. Here's my offering http://remakingme-atiyatownes.blogspot.com/2012/04/flash-fiction-clearing-wire.html

    Great story, I hope you expand this one.

  15. An excellent combination of the two prompts, I just had to read on. What a mixture of cultures there! Well done.

  16. Smoking hot, lady! Love the combination of the two prompts into one seamless scene. Great imagery and scary sexy. :D

  17. Wow, two stories in one. And I loved them both! Think I'll go get a tall glass of cold water now!! ;)

  18. Great work on creating an intriguing scene charged with atmosphere, erotic tension and a sense that matters are about to move beyond the mundane. I liked the discomfort of Chayse and the club environment felt like one of the themed rooms you can find in love hotels in Tokyo (or so I'm told...) This is my favourite of yours that I have read so far. :-)

  24. I'm not sure, but I'm pretty sure that were I to walk into a room with barbed wire and a pitch fork I would run for the exit as fast as I could! Although Lady Aislynn sounds intriguing and fantasy is usually fun!

  25. Powerful setup here, and I would definitely like to know what might happen next, although I feel the clues are all there ;-) great work!
