Boudoir - Friday Flash Fiction

(Photo source unknown)
He called home to see if she’d arrived. “I got here a few minutes ago. I’ve decanted the bottle of Malbec you had me pick up. Now I’m sorting the mail.”

“Go to the bedroom, get undressed. I'll be arriving in five minutes.”

“Oh, Yes Sir!”

When he walked in he noticed the scattered stacks of mail. He laughed, evidence of her zeal to comply, what a good girl.

Anxious to savor her beauty, he hurried down the hallway, opening the bedroom door. She was kneeling on the bed in just her panties, bra tossed aside, with the sheet held protectively over her breasts. Her child-like modesty was so charming.

He smiled at her, then turned and opened the closet door, “Look who I’ve invited for your birthday.”

93-129 words, incorporating, the required phrase, "...held protectively...")


  1. now that's a birthday present I wouldn't mind being on either end of!

  2. Birthday surprise, huh? ;-)

  3. I only wish there was a way to put "cute girl in my wardrobe" on my Amazon wishlist ;)

  4. Woohoo!!!! And just enough wrapping to tear off with your teeth! I think this one is my favorite so far!

  5. Ohhhhhhh, I am so sorry to have missed this one. It is one of my favourite pictures roaming about on tumblr.

    In the scenario I have in my head when I see it again two girls have been enjoying one another only to have the gentlemen call on the girl on the bed. In a desperate plea to keep the knowledge from him, she puts the girl in the cupboard. Alas, he has with him a coat and being the meticulous type, wishes to hang it up. He's not that impressed that he wasn't told and a sound spanking ensues for his girl while the other girl looks on. With that done, he has his way with them both!!

    I liked your version too, of course. LOL

  6. Wardrobe girl makes a good present for her - in my version she makes a good present for him!

    xx Dee

  7. Two beauties AND a nice bottle of wine? That is one lucky birthday boy! Great job, David!

  8. I'm not sure if this the same wardrobe CS Lewis was using, but I like it.

    My favorite line was "Her child-like modesty" because it is at odds with her actions. She is eager to please her lover, a bit shy, but already undressed, a great conflict. Well done.

  9. How lovely, David! It's a great take, and it will soon be my birthday. ;)
