THE LESSON

“By the light – tap, step, twirl, kick – of the silvery moon . . . ”

Felice, wearing only a towel, pirouetted in front of the mirror practising her routine, and the man on the fire-escape paused, mesmerised.
The Boss hadn’t told him she was gorgeous – just that she must be taught a lesson. He adjusted his crotch - this one would be a pleasure.

Felice caught the movement in the mirror but, like a true professional, didn’t miss a beat.
“I love to spoon – tap, step, twirl, kick!”

The towel drifted down like an autumn leaf over the felled attacker.

  3. I don't know how you came up with this from the prompt, oh yes I do - it looks like a big old silvery moon! But it was a great vengeance tale. Good for her high stepping kicks!

  13. Ha, great story - he never saw that coming. ;) Love the way the towel, such a soft, harmless and innocuous piece of fabric, falls over his (hopefully unconscious) body. ;)
