Making Love in the Library


“No, Alex. Absolutely not.” Mary slammed the book,  and returned it to the shelf.

He pressed his body against hers, breathing heavily in her ear.

“Well… maybe,” she sighed. “Just this once.”

This 33-word flash fiction story was inspired by Trifextra 67: Onomatopoeia.

Happy Writing and Photo Fun!

    Being honest…I scooted right over when I saw the title, I’m a sucker for a romantic tale in the stacks. 😉

    this was so good…hoping her “sigh” was a happy one.

    have a great weekend!

      Of course! She wanted to, and as soon as he helped lower her inhibitions, she was totally up for it!!

      I always loved to read, but never spent time in the library when I was in school. Weird, huh?

      • Kir Piccini says:

        no not weird, I think that everyone has their “places”.
        But I do admit to making out in the library. I loved books, I loved kisses…you can have BOTH in the library 😉

        such a fun read, nice to meet you and your blog Becca!

    Loved this! It reminded me of my high school boyfriend. We didn’t do much reading in the library…

    Oh my…did it suddenly get warm in here?

    • Becca says:

      I never had a lack of private places to… uh… hang out, when I was a teenager, so the library never made it on “that” list. Maybe it’s time to remedy that… I know hubby would be up for it, lol!!

    LOL! High school memories, where you “met” in the library when you were too young to drive. Oy!

    I work in a law library. It’s terribly unromantic. I have yet to catch anyone making out amidst the Tax binders. But who knows? Maybe, someday….:D

  12. Um-maaaah! Naughty! 😉

    Nicely written. Her weary agreement was just perfect.

    As if libraries needed another excuse to be awesome… 😉

  16. jannatwrites says:

    Well, the prospect of that would be the only way to get my husband in a library. (Not gonna happen… :))

  17. Linda Vernon says:

    Oh the tales those books could tell! 😀

  18. Books and being naughty, quite a combination.

  19. Mary should really learn to control her behavior in the library. I mean…slamming a book?! Really…

    Oh to be young and foolish again. Of course there weren’t a video camera lurking everywhere when I was young. Fun read.
