Photo Challenge #337



By Tessa Dean

Glancing around at the properly dressed people waiting in line at the showing of the new year’s “Artist of the Month,” Sarah felt out of place. Sean was wearing a tuxedo, a gorgeous pinstripe, but she had on a short, white dress, her favorite. She wore it frequently, and if you looked close enough, you would notice a few stains from her wine.

Her hair was pulled up off her neck rather than simply hanging like she usually wore it, but it had been just shoved into place with a few pins to hold it up. She didn’t have the money to have it done properly by a hairstylist.

The waiter was coming by with another tray of wine glasses, and Sarah was going to reach for another one when Sean squeezed her hand, a simple response to tell her no, that she already had enough. She pouted prettily at him, but she knew that later, there would be more wine at his place.

The line moved, and they were inside the building. This artist was up and coming. His paintings were old-fashioned but well done. The colors were vibrant.

As they stood there staring at the huge frame in front of them, she felt Sean move and place his hand on her butt-cheek. In shock, she almost forgot they were in the public eye. His hand was massaging gently, and her dress was creeping up even higher. She started to sink into him. Abruptly he pulled his hand away, and she almost fell. She glared at him. He winked. “Later,” he whispered into her ear.
