Lizzie’s phone buzzed.
Surprise! Our room. Now.
Lizzie couldn’t believe Adam had listened to her hints about spicing things up in the bedroom. Her breath quickened as she climbed the stairs.
Would they need a code word? Had she shaved her legs?
‘Ready to strip?’ Adam asked, as she entered the room.
Would this hurt? Lizzie felt unsure as she started to unbutton her jeans.
‘Not you, the wallpaper!’
Lizzie noticed the pots of paint and brushes in the corner. Fifty shades of grey? Fifty shades of dulux was the closest she would ever get married to Adam, but she was secretly relieved.
It was with much relief this week I finished writing The Gift. You can read about my experience with Second Book Syndrome here. Spice up your Life was written for Friday Fictioneers. A 100 words story inspired by a photo prompt. Hop of to host Rochelle’s blog and read the other entries here.
