Friday Fictioneers: Beach Romance

Camille, wrapped in her coverup, read breathlessly on the beach beneath the shade of the umbrella. Oh, what she’d do with a man like that!

Entrenched in the latest romantic exploits on her e-reader, Camille failed to notice the bronzed specimen who staked out the adjacent spot. Muscular, but not grossly so, he could have jumped right out of the book she was reading.

“Whacha readin’ beautiful?” The well oiled Hercules asked as he stretched out on his blanket baring his full figure to the gods above.

“I…ah…,” Camille couldn’t put two words together to say to a real man.

    Isn’t that just the way it goes? Tongue-tied. Nicely done.

    Ohh la la. What happens next is a whole different kind of story! Great job.

  3. Ha, ha! When our girls were little and we were at the library, our older daughter, looking at the covers for the paperback romances said, “Mom, why do they hardly have any clothes on?” 🙂

    Just one note–he should “bare” his body, otherwise he’s taking it up to the gods, which would be interesting but not in the spirit of your story. 🙂

      Oops, different kind of story for that! I was having so much fun writing about wolf-like men earlier in the week and slipped in a bear. 🙂 Thanks for the catch!

    Is this girl modeled after me? I could talk to anyone else and sound like an intelligent human being. The second a guy I find very attractive talks to me, I suddenly forget how to form coherent sentences. Great story!

    Reality sometimes sucks. Nice story!

    Perhaps your Hercules would have been too busy oiling his muscles to have listened to your response anyway! Ha ha! Ann

  8. Hey, that’s why we escape from real life into books. Ron

    Wonderful characters – and actually quite a statement on today’s world of mobile phones, facebooks etc. Really interesting, as the man will perceive it as a cold snub possibly..

  10. You made me really feel her insecurity and inability to deal with real people. Poor dear..

  11. billgncs says:

    When in doubt, smile!

  12. muZer says:

    Uh oh! that didn’t go well.. Wish they were retakes in real life too or maybe she did say something after stuttering… Loved the way this story flowed.. 🙂

  13. What a predicament. Perhaps her tongue loosened after a while. Nice and descriptive.
    shalom,
    Rochelle

  14. that would sooo be me! I enjoyed this one.

    Reminds me of when my female friends talk about reading “50 Shades of Gray” on the subway-trying to make sure none of the fellow passengers noticed!

    Hope the girl gets a real life romance 🙂

  16. […] Continuation of Beach Romance […]
