Notes: It’s time for the Alibi Flash Fiction Contest, again, and for the first time since 1998, I’ve submitted something. *gasp* Each of the two pieces below the cut is 100 words.
1. "Cream Sauce"
"Sin?" Sebastian didn’t look away from the pot of carbonara. "You know I love you, right?"
"Mm-hmm," Sin found it difficult to provide more of an answer, with his mouth full of what would become a spectacular hickey.
"And you know I’m cooking dinner for you, yes?"
Sebastian rapped Sin on the forehead with his knuckles. "Then why in god’s name are you trying to distract me? I rather prefer my cream sauces in the non-smouldering varieties."
Sin pulled back, with a slurp. "Because I can think of much better uses for the words ‘smouldering’ and ‘cream sauce’."
2. "Distressing Damsel"
The nice thing, Evan reflected, about being that guy with the heavy black make-up was that no one could tell he’d been punched in the face. Except Liz, of course.
"Sweetie-pumpkin? Dearling-doll? You know I’m not going to kill him. I just want to make him beg me for death," she purred. "Tell me who did this."
"No! You can’t just —"
"I’ll let you watch." She smiled, a thin and tempting crescent.
"Frank Hamilton." He grinned up at her. "Can I take pictures?"
"If my underwear is in any of them, I’ll kill you."
"So, don’t wear a mini."
