FTP 9 Intoxicated

True watched with jaded eyes and a secret smile. That one, he would be hers. Intoxicated, power flowing she focused. He dropped the hand of his partner meeting True’s eyes, bowing his head, submission in his every movement. Yes, he would be hers before the end of the night.

The season’s last revelry, the affluent of the city snap up tickets to a night of well-contained folly. Unbeknownst to them, this night will be different, this night the well-heeled are visited by Bacchus himself, their party spilling into the streets of the city, embracing the true meaning of bacchanalia.


Flash in the Pan is brought to you by the amazing Red of M3 fame

This week’s word is Intoxicated. The word limit is 100 words. This one comes in at 99.

  1. What a good piece to wake up to…went well with coffee, cig, pain pills and assorted. The day is set up…time to carry on.

  2. Gray Dawster says:

    How enchantingly wicked Val
    but guess what? I enjoyed reading
    this one and yes I think the party
    is about to start 🙂 😉 lol xxx

  3. The name ‘True’ is a great one – read twice as it’s so well done!

  4. Love the name, True. This flash sizzles with heat, Valentine. Wow, any hotter and my monitor might explode..

  5. So refreshing to read the word intoxicated in Spirit of emotion rather than in the alcoholic cocktails drank from Pub to Pub as they spill out onto the street at closing time 😉
    Glad you are enjoying Flash in the Pan Val.. I am enjoying reading them 🙂 And I confess I never heard of bacchanalia!! ….
    Love and Hugs Sue

  6. Awesome! I so miss the Bacchus krewe. Such fun. This makes me wonder what dance they were doing. Hmm. Tango is so appropriate. ❤ xxx

  7. How fitting about a weekend with two wine events. 🙂
