Sensually Refreshing

F208F500-422A-484B-B83D-CBEEB2D697BFThe day turned out to be very hot. A lot hotter than either Nate or Cindy thought it would be when they decided to hike through the canyon. Both were covered in sweat and dirt by the time they reached the river.

Nate searched around for a secluded spot and said to Cindy, “I know just how to cool us off. Let’s go skinny dipping in the river.

Cindy and Nate had only been dating for about a month, and, while they had done some heavy making out, they hadn’t yet gone all the way. Still, it was so hot and muggy and Cindy was quite uncomfortable in the heat and humidity, so, much to Nate’s delight, she agreed.

Nate wasted no time in stripping off his damp clothes and diving into the cold, refreshing water of the river. “Come on in, the water’s fine,” he called out to her.

Cindy peeled off her sticky hiking outfit, doing it slowly and sensuously, knowing how scintillating her sweaty body would appear with the sun glinting off of her sweaty, bare skin.

And, indeed, Nate was quite impressed with the sight of Cindy’s lissome body. He became more than a little self-conscious about his growing erection, which was quite visible in the clear river water.

As Cindy finished stripping, she looked over at Nate, who was watching her with his mouth agape and his hands attempting to cover his crotch. Facing Nate, with both hands on her hips and a licentious look on her face, Cindy’s voice took on a smooth, mellifluous tone as she almost sang out, “I’m coming.”

FOWC with Fandango — Scintillating

FOWCWelcome to July 8, 2018 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “scintillating.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.
