Two Months of Writing Prompts: Day Fifteen

Now, I don’t normally do this, but sometimes a writing prompt just fits with something I’m working on in story.  This is one of those cases, so you get a little bit of a sneak peak *rough and unedited* into Vertigo because today’s prompt is: I found the strangest thing in my pocket.  Since there’s nothing more to this prompt, I let it take me somewhere.  Enjoy!

He was gone before I woke up.  The rumpled sheets and teeth marks on my body were the only evidence he’d been here with me.  I admit, I was disappointed.  He hadn’t said whether or not he was pleased, nor did he allow me to see his face.  Did that mean this was it?

I sighed and stretched my aching limbs.  So much for getting back into the dating scene without a hitch.  I slid from the bed and started to gather the velcro straps.  Next, I picked up my scattered clothing from last night, which had managed to be flung in every direction.  I panicked for a minute when I couldn’t find my underwear.  The corset had draped itself over the headboard, my flimsy silk dress was below the window, and my stockings were hanging from a framed painting and tangled in the discarded comforter, respectively.  I’d torn the bed apart twice before realizing that I hadn’t worn any.

Deflated, I gathered up my toiletries, my pen-camera, and pulled out my change of clothes.  Shower be damned.  I wanted out of the room.  I’d take a shower at home where I could figure out how, or if I should message Draconis.

I pulled on the cotton sports bra and panties I’d packed in my suitcase, shrugged into a nice pink and black blouse, and wiggled into a pair of worn denim jeans, ignoring the bunched cloth in the pocket and slipped on some sandals.

I was out of the room, down the hall, and nearing the reception desk when I couldn’t stand my pocket any longer and shoved my hand in to straighten it.  My fingers met with something firmer than the cloth of my pocket.  I pulled it out and in my hand I found a green polyester dog collar with “training” written in black permanent marker by the buckle.  I frowned at it.  We only had one night, though we had been talking for a while.  Still, a collar was a big deal I’d thought.  Maybe the “training” meant he was still interested and wanted other Doms to know that I was being courted?  Perhaps the cheep nature of it was as much symbolic of how temporary the relationship was.  I decided to put it back in my pocket till I could talk to him more about it.  Whatever he meant by it, the collar obviously meant this wasn’t over yet.

My interests include most things geek and Vampire fiction, though not the sparkly kind, that's not vampire fiction. I have goals towards publishing that have yet to be fulfilled but one day...
