Flash Fiction Friday - 24 August: Hands

It's Friday and time for the flashers to bring you their short stories to read. Click to read the other awesome writers' stories. A given picture, which may paint a thousand words, but on Fridays only one hundred is allowed. No more no less. This week my story is called Hands 


“Could squeeze me in for a half hour massage?”

The receptionist looked up. “I was about to close, but …” A topless man in shorts walked through and shook her hand. “I’ll do it,” he said. “Follow me. I’m new, but don’t worry I’m qualified.”

Mandy partially stripped, then lay on the futon, waiting. With legs astride her, the masseur's hands worked their magic.  He skilfully rid her of all the inner pent up tensions.

Mandy sighed contentedly. His hands were bewitching.  Suddenly he stroked her head and she felt his breath as he whispered, “What colour is your hair?” 


  1. Aw, that's sweet. He obviously makes up for his handicap in other ways. Great post!

  2. Nothing worse then needed a massage and not getting one, so glad he offered. Love her contended sigh, it's perfectly placed. And she felt his breath when he whispered, love that, he's close, it's intimate. You leave me wanting more, Naomi.

  3. Nicely structured, Naomi. A perfectly structured and pleasantly surprising piece of short fiction. Very well done.

  4. Wow, I'm getting creepy serial killer vibes and I love it!! Fantastic Flasher.

  5. Love to know where this is going. Great FFF!

  6. That's a great take. I would love to see more of this. Beautifully written.

  7. I honestly don't think he's interested in the color of the hair on her hair. He wants to know about the color of the hair between her legs. In fact, he's probably hoping she doesn't have any hair at all between her legs.

    Gawd, I am soooo bad. Nice FFF Naomi.

  8. Is he blind? He must live his life through his hands. Lovely short.


I long to know what you think. So please leave me a comment
