Six Sentence Sunday: Mightier than the Sword

Today’s six is from Mightier than the Sword, an erotic short story I wrote for Red Lipstick Journals (to run in May). David Sword needs the marketing expertise of Adriana Covington to launch the X-59, a secret, cutting-edge product he has developed. Adriana has said she doesn’t see the application for the new product, how it’s different than what’s already on the market.

Never give anything away—that was Adriana. She wore her reserve like a vest of chain mail, not realizing her mantle challenged every red-blooded man within orbit to attempt to strip it from her to see what lay underneath.

“You don’t know yet?” he asked.

The seemingly cool ones burned the hottest. David pictured Adriana’s long body stretched out on a sheet of ice blue satin, her skin slick with perspiration, her back arched to a bow. Her body would be his to play, and from her he’d strum the sweetest, carnal sounds.
