Drabble #52

Prompt: Photo - food on a grill

Chicken, shrimp, squash, and peppers sizzle on the grill, filling the air with delicious smoke, making the yard even hotter on this sultry day. The food is tempting, but the heat is overwhelming. I retreat with a beer to a willow tree in the far corner of the yard. I settle into the hammock, feel my body cool down. To my surprise, you join me. I’ve been fantasizing about you all afternoon, but never thought you’d actually approach me. I heat up again as you ease in next to me. When your hand meets mine, my body bursts into flames.
