Flash Fiction Friday, March 2, 2012 ~ The Emerald Pool

We are at it again.  This hot and sultry Flash Fiction Friday looks to be one of the sexiest FFF yet.  We Pupils of Purient Pedagogy have written, once again, our own 100 word interpretations of the same photo no doubt to the throbbing pulse of our heartbeats. 


Years ago as a young woman, I was introduced to a secret reservoir of spring water nestled in the foothills of the Sierras.  Spring fed and cold as cold could ever be, we swam and frolicked for as long as our naked,  goose-bumped bodies could tolerate the chill.  It was called the Emerald Pool by locals, and many swimmers had been injured by diving off of the granite rocks.  I have taken this life experience and turned it into this week's Flash Fiction Friday.  Read on...............this is mine.


The Emerald Pool

The chilly spring fed pool suspended her painful, twisted body. The stark contrast of the numbing water to the hot, steamy penetration of his hard shaft was the only way she could feel his love.

She whimpered as she abandoned her pain to their pleasures. He cupped her drape to his face, drowning in the aroma of memories, stifling a silent scream as he whispered her name.

"Now," she said softly, touching his face tenderly, "now................please"

He released his hold, crying.  She drifted into the swirl of the emerald pool then disappeared into the waiting dark embrace of relief where she would forever be free.

Interested in reading more takes on this interesting photo?  They are not all alike and each submission is written by one of my dear friends.  Follow this link to Flasher Fiction Friday to get Flashed by all of us:) xo

  7. There always such sensual mystery in your writing. And the poetic flow makes the read even more enjoyable. I don’t care what the story is about, I always read your post twice, just to enjoy it again. :o) Wonderful job Muffy.

  9. Stunning, tantalizing, sensual mystery, amazingly bittersweet - Muffy, there are so many superlatives to describe your writing style. When I read this FFF post, the word that comes to mind for me is surreal. There is a surreal quality to this FFF that transported me to that emerald pool and sucked down into it's swirling depths.

    Very good Ms Muffy, very good indeed.
