April 27: Flash Fiction Challenge – Massage

crude-oil

April 27, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes oil. It can be an oil refinery, the raw product or used as a commodity. How does oil fit into a plot or a genre? Go where the prompt leads.

It was the best and worst of massage. The girl with pudgy fingers slapped on the massage oil which I could feel running under my stomach.

Her fingers generated the nervousness you associate with a first-time massage.

She had used far too much oil, her fingers slipped every so often and dug into my neck creating a pain and anxiety such that with my brain asked the pertinent question: “Does this woman know what she is doing?”

She forged ahead, with muscles manipulated, I felt the beginnings of relief, before she slapped me on the rump announcing job done.

    There’s got to be a first for everything, even massage. But please let it be someone else! Great flash.
