Early Morning Delight

The aromatic air led me to this place;
percolating coffee, cinnamon, vanilla
swirled into tantalizing tastes I admire.

You ordered a piece of apple strudel
while I puckered up my lips, painted them red
hoping you'd follow me back to the hotel.

Smiling! Love the apple strudel.
But pucker lips painted that is a great line.

Great last line. Always leave the reader with something to ponder, I say.

I LOVE the eye-brow raising twist at the end! Perfect.

Cinnamon! Coffee!
So when is the novella coming out, Laurie?

The absolutely perfect ending! Love it, Laurie.

So...let me see. If Morning Delight leads to (perhaps) "afternoon delight" then what does afternoon delight lead to?

;-)

Just me being silly. Good one, Laurie.

Delightful piece, and a lot of my favourite flavours too!

Not only did we get a delightful assault on the senses we were able to conjecture on the possible sexy outcome. A beautiful piece indeed.

Charming, Laurie. My take is short and sweet as well this week.
