100 Word Challenge – Week 61.2: Aftermath

Two X-wings howled over the barren surface of yet another unimportant rock in space in silence.

Until, “So?”

The other pilot didn’t answer.

“That was a hell of a night, eh?”

No response.

“I know I had a wild night.  I mean, first the pole dancing, and then they talked us into body shots…”

“Will you shut up already, Wes? I woke with another headache, and can’t get the taste of bad brandy out of my mouth.” Hobbie scowled

“Really? I would’ve thought that blonde at the end would taste like berries or something else sweet.”

“Someday, you’ll hit puberty and it will make sense.”


And entry #2 for this week’s 100 Word Challenge from Julia’s Place. Since I couldn’t seem to find any humor in last week, I need to hit the ground running this week. So, I think this is a good start. This is also a direct sequel to one of my earlier challenge entries, titled “Divide and Conquer”

I hope you all enjoy!

    so much more to a good night than body shots and hot sex? LOL! puberty has it’s place, too, I suppose, but there is a deeper question that leads to dissatisfaction with such philandering. well done, the tension between, their friendship deep enough to handle it til now, til this new awareness… 🙂

  3. I wish there was more of this in Star Wars

    Someone has a hangover…
    Good portrait of someone who hasn’t learnt when to shut up.

  5. Ah, the morning after! I like to think that you’re blending two famous franchises here…”Wes” makes me think of the notorious Wesley Crusher from Star Trek TNG!

    • Very close! His full name is Wes Janson, and his friend is Derek “Hobbie” Kilvian, both from the Star Wars universe, both ace pilots and all around a dynamic duo of friendly banter. I really enjoy writing them, and I’m happy you like it too!

    Hee hee! Pretty racy, but I like it. There’s a very genuine camaraderie between these lads – good to see they’re still free as ever.
