Wicked Wednesday #271 — Hotel (Reprint)

This week I am doing the Top Three for Wicked Wednesday!!! I thought since I cannot vote for myself, I would reprint my first Wicked. You can find my top three here: Eliza was always waiting. As a younger woman with her friends in bars looking for Mr. Goodbar like the novel and movie she […]

Wicked Wednesday #270 — Bond

“Who was he?” Terrence had asked when he saw the look Eliza and Oscar exchanged in the stairwell, and now Eliza looked at Oscar. They were at their favorite bar, and Josephine was still there when they got there. “Long time no see,” she had mused while pouring them straight Laphroaig, the smokiness stayed in […]

Wicked Wednesday #269 — Titanic

Eliza did not even bother to turn around, she felt Terrence so close and could smell his scent. She backed away from the painting, and into his hard chest. He put his hands about her shoulders, to brace her.Something in her resisted, and accepted his embrace at the same time.“Don’t resist…” he whispered.Commanded.And she could […]

Wicked Wednesday #268 — Vintage Art

Eliza looked at her face in the mirror, she had tucked into the bathroom because instead of focusing on the vintage artwork she had come to see, she was hiding in the bathroom. She knew that she might have seen Polly at the sale because it was art that Polly sold. She knew that she […]

Wicked Wednesday #267 — Venus in Fur

Lila thought about Eliza and Terrence briefly, and with a smile on her lips as Rafe knelt at her feet.Rafe. Margot had told her about Rafe, Margot was deeply in love with Rafe, and she had promised him a kink scene for their next date. She sat in the corner watching the two of them. […]

Wicked Wednesday #266 — Bubbles

Eliza looked at the bubbles while they were thick, until they started to dissipate and all she could see was her skin under the water. Rafe had already checked on her, because she had not emerged from the bathroom for such a long time. She couldn’t, she was not able to, her head was everywhere. […]

Wicked Wednesday #265 — Shopping

Eliza felt almost calm shopping with Rafe. He pushed the cart and got all of the things on the top shelves—even though she was more than happy to stand on her tiptoes to get them. “Are you okay?” he asked her. She could see his eyes were intense, even though his sunglasses shaded them. “Of […]

Wicked Wednesday #264 — Nightmare

Eliza woke up sweaty and panting beside Terrence, she had had the worst nightmare. Her body heaved, and she tried to settle herself because she did not want to wake him up, even though her movement made him instinctively reach for her. His arms like fire because she was so overheated from whatever she had […]

Wicked Wednesday #260 — 2517

Landing in New York felt like landing in another world, or in another year. Like 2517, or something really faraway.  Eliza walked with her luggage, with Terrence at her side. Her dark shades hid her teary eyes. She tried to hide all of her emotions because if Terrence saw her crying, he would want to know […]

Wicked Wednesdsay #258 — Long Lost Friends

Eliza was more deceptive about Terrence than she was about anything else. Even with Oscar, she had been more forthcoming in a way. But going to Paris with him, and going to see Severine and her new husband was something she had not expected doing.  Or lying about to Rafe. It was odd how close she […]
