Flash Fiction Friday : Cheater


"Don't look at me like I'm a particularly nasty insect that's crawled uninvited under your microscope lens." He puffed lightly on his cigarette.
"I didn't say you were." He was too gorgeous to be called a bug.
"No, the look says it all." He sneered.
"You're cheating."
"I'm sorry. It'll never happen again."
"Because you got caught. I'll never trust you again." My gaze lingered on the lean lines of his body with regret.
"You're overreacting."
"Did I ever really know you?"
"It's just a fucking Scrabble game, Chris."
"You cheated me. What's to keep you from cheating on me?"

  1. This is an interesting FFF…I would love to get to know these two better. Is he serious or kidding? Is he overreacting? And this lovely man…is he a cheater at heart or is he just an extra tile slipper? Oh Lee…I haven't had enough coffee yet this morning to ponder this...lol

    You know I'll catch up with you later for the deets…hehe

  6. Loved it! Sound like someone has some issues they need to resolve. Nice play on the picture, Lee!

  7. wow, from initial reading, I would say this guy has a severe insecurity complex. However, many people do and I wonder how they function in life.
    Illuminating post, Lee

  12. Lee, how seductively creative you are. Sucked me right in to the very end. But.....would he? I loved this post. Just loved it:) xo

  13. Loved this flash. he could be a cheater at heart, but I wouldn't bet on it. The look in his eyes has him fully engaged. Loved the twist you spun on this one, Lee.
