Story Time!

To brighten your afternoon: a juicy little wedge of fiction by the gifted and talented Mayumi Shimose, here.

And a tantalizing excerpt:

The nakedness of their desire was contagious; it made me compliant. But it’s supposed to be the other way around, right? Teenaged temptresses in the Bible, they’re always wrapping the men around their fingers. Delilah and the hair. Salome and her seven veils. Eve and that apple. Barely saved from Sodom, Lot’s two daughters slip him a mickey and seduce him. Seemed I’d been doing it all wrong.

(excerpted from 'Passiontide,' originally published in Frontier Psychologist)

Love you Mayumi!! xx
