What Would Happen…

sparkling8A stranger’s green eyes glanced in my direction. I pressed the elevator button, diamond-encrusted wedding set throwing sparks. After depressing another button, his hand brushed mine.

Then, my tongue slipped past his lips.

This 33 word flash fiction was written for Trifextra Week 65: use a hyphenated compound modifier.

Inspired by “What Would Happen” by Meredith Brooks.
