Thanks to everyone who voted in my Thong-Sized Stories contest.  For a few days, each story had the same amount of votes, and I was afraid I’d have to alter the rules and just do a pot-luck drawing of everybody who opted in.  This weekend saw a clear winner pull away from the pack, and that story is, “The Turkey Incident,” which will be free to read for until 9/18/13.

Thong-Sized Stories will be available soon in print and for your e-readers, so be sure to keep up on what’s happening in the Imaginary Playground.

Thanks again for participating!  This was fun, so I’m sure I’ll be doing more contests!

She came in two hours late, and by the dim blue night light Eric watched her tiptoe around their small bedroom. Christine wore a scarlet miniskirt and an almost-sheer black crop top. The sleazy clothes showed off the creeper of vines tattooing her hips, and plenty of tanned flesh.

Her frilly pink waitress uniform drooped from a hanger she carried on the tips of her fingers. She folded it over the back of the chair by the bathroom, set her purse atop the seat, and fished out her phone. When the screen lit up, it revealed her nervous frown.

Eric held still in bed, on his stomach as usual. He kept one eye open just a crack as his heart thudded against the mattress. His right hand slid a little deeper under the pillow.
