Tantelizing Tuesday Teaser #5


Welcome to another Tantelizing Tuesday. It's that time where several authors challenge themselves with writing a 200 word short on a picture of their choosing. When you're finished reading my little contribution this week, check out what the other talented authors have to offer by following the links at the end of the page. Enjoy.


Sharlene sat at the piano for what seemed like hours, staring at the keys. She reminisced of times spent with Klyde. She began fingering the keys and notes she never heard before began to play. She closed her eyes and images played in her mind as the music flowed.
His fingers played over her body elegantly. He knew exactly what he was doing and where to touch to get the most erotic responses from her. Klyde was truly a master with his hands. Klyde manipulated her body as well as he manipulated the beautiful ivory keys when he was teaching her how to play the large instrument. He was as talented as he was charming.
Tears flowed from her eyes as she remembered Klydes touch, and the music got more and more intense. Sharlene’s breath began to catch and her pulse began to quicken as the most beautiful images of their love making played in her head. It was almost as if his ghost was right there, fucking her while she played a song that seemed to form out of nowhere.
He was gone forever, except in her memories. Why did you leave me Klyde? Wasn’t our love worth living for?

  1. So sad and touching. I hope she forgives him because it seems he lives on in the music she plays. Are you making this a ghost story? Love those. :)

  2. So touching and moving. Will he come back to her as a shifter or spirit? Or is he through with her for all eternity ~ the cad?:) xo

    1. Thank you Muffy. When I was writing it, my thought was that he was in fact possessing her body.

  4. I so love the last line and I think we have all had that feeling at least once in our lives. Why didn't he understand how much I loved him? Beautiful.

  11. My mind got caught up in the double entendre of this line - "when he was teaching her how to play the large instrument". However, the very last line snapped me back to reality. I wonder how many people wake up everyday and ask themselves that same question - is this life worth living.

    Nice Leann, haunting and well written.
