100 Words: Pleasure

This week’s prompt: Pleasure

100 words, no more no less

He lays beside me smiling, the twinkle in his brown eyes captivate my heart. He reaches for my face and I gingerly kiss his fingers. His body is warm curled up next to me. I rub his nearly bald head. I return the smile and he giggles, kicks my belly. Grabbing his pudgy toes, I tickle his feet. His full laugh is contagious. He tries to roll away but finds himself face to face with a bearded man. The man opens his big hazel eyes, a familiar twinkle takes me breath. The man whispers, “Lil Man, she was mine first.”

    What a lovely snapshot of pleasure! I absolutely love it and I love the tickling of “pudgy toes.” It reminds me of what my mother would do to me when I crawled into her bed during the early mornings!
