Tantalizing Tuesday 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.

“Good morning, ElectroStar. Can I please have your client number?” Martyn tried to remain upbeat when he wanted to grumble. Art supplies did not come cheap and while he loved his craft, he also loved his creature comforts so he had no plans to give up his day job and regular salary. The deep timbre of his favourite caller sent tingles down Martyn’s spine and he fought to keep his tone professional. He once again booked a repairman to deal with the poor man’s malfunctioning air conditioner. As this was the hottest July on record it was not a time to be left without a way to cool down. Timothy was always patient and understanding not like any of the other callers he’d been getting lately. As the temperatures rose so did the tempers of his complaining customers.

“Mr. Richardson, is there anything else we can do for you?” Martyn wished for him to drone on and on about his dissatisfaction. Anything to hear the sexy voice that had been staring in his dreams and daytime fantasies but the polite man soon hung up after taking the time to wish Martyn a good day and thank him for his help.

Don't forget to check out my fellow Teasers!!

Wonderful, Cyril! I could almost see him swimming in his daydreams the sexual timbre of his caller's voice evoked! Beautiful descriptions:) xo

That picture took me back. I used a headseat to train for my first job as a telephonist. To get a sexy voice on the other end of the line was a joy. I hope they have many more conversations. Great teaser

Great idea for a teaser, nicely executed. This one you could pursue into a very effective full-length tale. All the yearning, humour and passion is there.
