“Oh my God,” David said to his girlfriend when she opened the door to her apartment, “Donna, you’re glowing.”
“Thank you, David,” Donna said, a slight blush appearing on her cheeks. “Come inside.”
“I mean it, Donna. Your skin looks luminescent,” David said with a look of concern on his face.
“I know, right?” Donna said.
“Donna, take off your clothes,” David insisted.
Donna laughed. “Before dinner? Oh aren’t you the naughty one,” she said.
“I’m serious,” David said. “Take off your clothes.”
“David, you’re frightening me a little,” Donna said.
“Dammit, remove your clothes!” Once she did as she was told, David gasped. “You look radioactive,” he said.
“How did you know?” Donna asked.
“How did I know what?”
“How did you know that the name of my new body wash is ‘Radioactive’?”
“Show me the bottle it came in,” David insisted. Donna went to her bathroom and came out holding the bottle of her body wash. David grabbed it from her hands. “Where did you get this?” he asked.
“At a booth at Sunday’s farmer’s market.” Donna said.
David looked at the ingredients on the bottle’s label. “Get dressed, Donna. I’m taking you to the ER. This body wash contains radium and you have radium poisoning. That’s why your skin is glowing, Donna.”
Written for today’s one-word prompt, “luminescent.”
