VSS 028 - Lust



LUST

 

Very Short Story (VSS) 028

 

His eyes undressed her at every opportunity but she had avoided physical proximity till now. But not for long. She was now allocated on his team.

                                                                                                                                      

He delayed the first meeting till late evening so that no one else was around.  

 

She had seen the lust in his eyes and was prepared.

 

He placed his hand on her shoulder saying that her involvement and cooperation on the project would be rewarded with promotions and salary hikes.

 

She planted a quick kiss on his cheek, saying “You have my full cooperation”.

 

The game of cat and mouse had begun.

 

 

 

------------------------------------

 

Thus starts the Seven Deadly Sins Series - Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, Pride. Have kicked off with Lust and the remaining 6 will follow.

 

This story went through a couple of re-writes. Each time, a different ending. I finally decided to leave it at a point where the story can go in any direction and the reader can interpret the last line in multiple ways. This brings an element of suspense to the story. I like it.

Quick Note: Very Short Stories (VSS) are max. 99 word stories that i am writing, as part of my writing resolutions for 2017. My target is to write 50 VSS this year.
