Tantalizing Teaser

Tantalizing Tuesday is all about writing 200 word Tantalizing Teasers, inspired by a personal picture prompt to post on Tuesdays. The emphasis is on having fun, pictures can be anything that takes our fancy. I hope you enjoy what we have to offer.

He’d done the unforgivable this time. The gorgeous man sitting before him looked so sad and it was all because of his own thoughtless actions. Beechem’s apology had no impact whatsoever and he was running out of promises to make. Seeing such a strong man looking so devastated made him feel like an utter asshat. There was really no excuse for Beechem’s total disregard for his lover’s feelings. He had quickly pushed aside the guilt and misgivings and acted selfishly knowing full well how Jake would feel if he ever found out. Jake was often a kind and forgiving man but he had certain tenets he could not abide being disregarded. At the time, Beechem truly believed he had no other choice. He had known there would be repercussions but had immediately convinced himself that he could gain Jake’s forgiveness if he ever found out.

At Jake’s plaintive moans, he cringed and thanked goodness his employer believed in a great benefits package, which thankfully included same sex couples. Because the shit had hit and it looked like Beechem would be filling out a crap load of Employee Assistance Program forms for counselling sessions.

“I can’t believe you used my toothbrush!”

Damn! I would never have guessed Beechem's transgression.
Well written teaser.

I have to say after all that build up the ending surprised me and made me grin huge. Nicely done. Who knew about a toothbrush>>

Loved the twist at the end. Good one. You got me with that one. I laughed so hard. Excellent post!

Naomi Shaw said...

Excellent twist at the end. I was waiting for something entirely different. Now he'll have to buy a replacement toothbrush! Great teaser

diannehartsock said...

Awesome! Thanks so much for the laugh. :) Though Jake has a point. Toothbrushes should remain sacred...

Unknown said...

LOL, that was a good piece there. I like the way you put an epic twist, but what the ultimate sin was made me laugh.

gemma parkes said...

Ha! Great tease, leading us in like that to wonder what on earth had happened between them and then...brilliant!

Leann Mitchell said...

Ha! You had me going! That was a great teaser! Couldn't help laughing at the end!

"I can't believe you used my toothbrush!" - Loved that ending. All the build up from something Taboo ended on a funny note! A real tease! Loved it.

Unknown said...

I can't stop giggling. Fantastic post. But I do know how some people cannot stand the thought of someone else using their toothbrush!

Wasn't expecting that ending. Great twist
