Tantalizing Tuesday - 21 August: Action

It's Tuesday and time for the teasers to tantalize you. A personal picture choice and 200 words only to tell a story. Click to read teasers by the other Awesome Writers  This week my story is called Action

Come on you two, make more of an effort, you’re driving me crazy.”

Lois looked up at the cameraman. “I’m sorry Pete; I’m just not comfortable with this.”

“It’s in your contract love; didn’t you read the small print?

Lois vaguely remembered receiving and looking in horror at her contract. Quickly scanning the details she’d signed the dotted line. She vowed in future to be more careful about her scenes. Six months ago, everything was different. Lois would have enjoyed being in front of a camera with this hunk of a man on top of her in a steamy love scene. Now, everything had changed.


Craig swallowed hard and ran his fingers through Lois’ blonde hair.  Nibbling her ear, he whispered, “Let’s make it look good so we can finish quickly. I know you’re not happy.”
Her body shifted under him and she wrapped a leg around his. Lois turned away from the camera and concentrated attentions on Craig for the remainder of the scene. 

Afterwards, Pete helped Craig up.

“Take him,” said Lois. “Just one thing Craig, I take it you signed the divorce papers.”
“Don’t worry. All signed.”

“He’ll get action with me now,” Pete chipped in.   


  1. Nice post, Naomi! I always like the little twists you throw in. :)

  2. Oh wow, that must have been awkward for everybody. I wonder if Pete got jealous watching Craig laying on top of Lois, Craig's soon to be ex-wife. Poor Lois, instead of worry about her contract, maybe next time she should make sure she knows if her lover/husband also swings both ways. Nicely done Namomi.

  3. Great Tease! I found it hardbreaking and wnated to swipe the smirk off Pete's face.

  4. Wonderful post. So much emotion in so few words.

  5. Gotta agree with Lee...I so wouldn't grin and bear it...lol

    Great TT Naomi! :)

  6. So many twists crammed into one brief tease. Great economic writing, Naomi. Lots of scintillating story and a triangle that this reader would like to explore further...

  7. Your little twists near the end never fails to impress me. Well done Naomi, as always.


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