Winners Announcement:

Honorable Mentions
Rik Davnall | @eatthepen
Cara says: I love the circular danger of claiming the demon of slapstick as your avatar. The scene played out like a paranormal Three Stooges sketch. Great job.

 Jeffrey Hollar | @Klingorengi
 Cara says: The moral decline of humanity is putting demons out of work?? Perfect. I love the holiday rush corporate-style pep talk and the whole tale. Great story.

 Tom Keller | @dryadsgarden
Cara says:  At first I thought the old man would turn out to be the angel, but you did it better. The angel is the statue, and the old man and the bartender are taking turns punking the unsuspecting. Love it.

Week One Winner

Cara says: Well-written with an original take on the prompt phrase. Half code, half foreplay, the two characters pop like a spoof spy scene from ‘Top Secret’ or ‘Johnny English.’ Excellent work!

"He sat at the bar letting his fedora slide down his arm in a showy display. Den looked around the smoke-filled room and found what he was looking for quickly.

A green dress accentuated her well-fed curves that God had seen fit to fill in all the right places. The fluidity in her movements only enhanced his inseam and made him almost forget what he had to do. No wonder she had been chosen for this job; her very presence made a person distracted.

She sat beside him at the bar; the stool the object of his envy. He stumbled over his brain and found that words were difficult to form, “An unlikely place for an angel to appear.”

Her lips parted and her chest heaved gloriously the words he had come to hear: "Contrary to popular belief, angels come in all shapes and sizes, with all kinds of wings."

He struggled to remember the confirmation code; her nipples pressing hard against the flimsy material that barely covered them. He ripped his eyes away from the lovely sight and pinched his arm, as he crossed them, to try to regain control, “Then the damned will envy my conversion.”

She put a hand on his leg and the shock of it sent tingles straight to his dick. He placed a hand over hers and the package was delivered; both of them. Her eyes raised to his knowingly and she gave him a sly grin before she stood up and walked away."
Congratulations Maureen, Rik, Jeffrey, and Tom! Claim your badges and display them with pride. You certainly earned it! :) 

Pass on the great news on Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, shiny mirrors, Morse Code, signal flags. Check out all the stories here and I hope to see you all back next week for #ThursThreads! :)
