The Wrong Tool For the Job

“Fancy a ride?” Matt gambled.
Kayleigh beamed at the sports car, a faint blush shading her heavy make-up.
She tingled as the engine throbbed; the wind exciting her hair.
As he changed gear, she took his hand, “Stuart’s got a boring hatchback.”
Matt jerked into Lovers’ lane, stopping abruptly.
She dragged him to her, ardently kissing then burying his face in her cleavage, to suffocation point.
“Put the roof up, I’ll get in the back.”
Struggling with the mechanism, his ardour withered,
“Forget it,” she bawled, “it’s too small, just take me home!”
“Hatchbacks have their moments,” Matt bemoaned limply.

    • It is a bit risque, Rochelle, but I didn’t dare risk the original one I thought of: 🙂
      “As God’s my witness, I’ve seen that car before, I tell you!” Clive was adamant.
      “You can’t have.” Derek shook his head in disbelief.
      “I have and what’s more, in this very place.”
      Derek noticed Clive’s perturbation and moved to reassure him.
      “It’s very queer, but you’re not going crazy. Mark my words, it’ll be that deja vue.”
      “Do you think I could’ve been deja vued?” Derek was trembling.
      “Most definitely, I’d say.”
      “Well who would do that?”
      “I wouldn’t worry, it’ll be that Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, she does things like that sometimes.”
      “Does she? Well I never, who’d thought it?”

  1. Lol. This reminded my of my first husband’s car when I met him, a GREMLIN. A GREEN gremlin, if that’s imaginable. Now…my second husband…he drove a Toyota 4-runner…mhm. Plenty of room in the back.

    Loved your story!

  2. This was great, innuendos and all (and the second story too 😉 )
    I keep thinking of my friend’s horror at parents who get their teens a large bed “for when they bring their boyfriend over”… She said no way would she give them the OK…Her daughters were going to be good girls and do it in the backseat of a car! 😀

  3. Haha! So sports cars are good for attracting the ladies but not for ‘fulfilling the contract’, as it were. Nicely told, with great dialogue. Love the hint that the hatchback might be code for Stuart – maybe boring but reliable, eh? Great tale

  4. I finally got over here, and it was worth the trip. Funny. And a masterful use of innuendo for sure. Your heroine is certainly a fast worker, but then when you have only 100 words, there really isn’t time for preliminaries is there?
