Bite After Bite

This post, as all of my posts, is in response to the wonderful Velvet Verbosity, keeper of the 100 Word Challenge. This week's prompt is STARVED.

Two tall tapers on the table and several pillar candles around the room provide soft lighting. You pull out my chair and I take my seat, wearing my finest dress—the one you tell me you like so much because it accentuates my figure. You take your seat across from me, we’re close but too far to touch. I pull the fork toward me and blow, watching the steam curl away from me. Your lips start to move but I can’t hear anything you’re saying. I take bite after bite, shoveling in your lies, so why am I still starving?

I read over this quickly this morning and realized I had left out a word which would have put me over the 100 word limit, if added back in so I had to fix things a bit-no content changes or anything, just making it fall within the rules.


  1. I wrote something very similar yet not as obvious. Very well written.

  2. I really liked this. Clever :)

  3. nice! - I did not see the ending coming but it was awesome!

  4. This brings to mind the stereotypical wealthy couple sitting down to dinner. I loved it! Very well done.

  5. I do like the twist and play on words at the end. Nicely done.

  6. Thanks for the comments guys, it's great to hear feedback on my entries!
