Tantalizing Tuesday - Resolutions

I'm trying to post more regularly in 2016. I won't call it a resolution so I won't berate myself when I fail to meet my standards. Don't judge, it's worked in the past. I'm good with vague aims, really. (Who am I kidding?) Anyway! I'm starting off with a return to Tantalizing Tuesday. I hope to be a participant often! To read all the other fabulous 200 word teasers, hop over to our blog.

“That’s it. I’m out.” Jenny thumped out of the bathroom.
“Bwah?” Tony asked. “Jen? What’s wrong?”
“Nothing,” she mumbled her head on her arms.
“That didn’t sound like nothing,” he said, saving his game and rising from his desk. “The new year has barely started. Vacation isn’t even over yet.”
“I don’t want to talk about it,” she whined, her voice still muffled.
Tony looked at her face down on the couch. She was wearing comfy yoga pants and sweatshirt. She looked like she should be tucking into a good book or joining him online.
“Fine,” Tony said, flopping on couch atop her.
“Get off.”
“Nope,” he said, wrapping his arms around her waist and hugging. “I want to mope with you.”
“Stop it.”
“Uh-uh,” he shook his head, rubbing his face on her ass.
Jenny took a rasping breath. “The problem is that that is too fat and I’ve gained another five pounds already. Great start to the year.”
“Babe. I’ll take those five and the next, and the next. Just stay here with me.” He rested his head on her ass. “Oh, and keep this. Perfect pillow.”
A cushion was thrown in his face accompanied by Jenny’s giggle.

  1. This is cute and sexy and sweet all wrapped up in one wonderful tease. I loved this! Great writing, and I think the line, "I want to mope with you" is my favorite writing of 2015 so far.

  2. This was so real and literal. Who hasn't had this conversation and felt the exact same way? Yea, we won't judge, not her either. I have my own pillows to haul around. Lovely teaser, Angelica. I am so looking forward to reading your Tuesday Teasers. Welcome back! xo

  5. All she had to do was fart to get him off, but if she's sweating the 5 lbs, she shouldn't. Nice tease.

  6. Fun and playful. Love the aspect of the new year tied into her weight gain. He is stricken with love for her. Everyone should have a partner like him. This would be a great scene for a longer story.
