"Now, stre-e-e-e-tch...and hold."

He did as he was told, back against a curved support, grumbling the whole time. "I don't understand why - "

She raised an eyebrow. "You said you wanted to join the circus, yes?"

"Yeah, but - "

"Then shut. Up."

She ignored the way his eyes watched her chest at every stolen opportunity. He should have been paying attention to other things, like her fingers weaving ropes against the skin of his wrists, like the pressure of the knots tying his hands to the metal over his head, until she pulled the cords tight and hard, and he gasped a curse.

"Hey, baby. Maybe we define 'circus' differently."

Her smiled didn't touch her eyes. "Of that, my love, I'm certain."

Bowed back and bound, he tried to flirt his way to safety. "So ya gonna have your way with me?"

"Oh, yes." She leaned over him. Her hair fell around them, a curtain, a wall, and her eyes were the only things he could see.

"How many women?" she whispered.

Unseen hands crushed his legs against more metal, lashing his ankles to that same continuous curve.

"What the fuck are you doing?"

Her expression didn't change. "There is always a witness." Pause. "Are you ready?"

"Bitch, you need to - this isn't funny, I - What the hell are they doing?!?"

She pulled away so he could see her helpers connecting a rod to something behind his back. He screamed, he pulled and thrashed as strangers' hands slipped the rod into the back hub of another wheel.

The carriage driver frowned. "He's thicker than the others. This is going to be a rougher ride."

"We'll get it right next time." She patted the screaming wheel's stomach. "And now? On, my love, with the show."

Having once worked at a circus, very little about this would surprise me :)

House crew (combination stagehand/usher) of the Goin' Places tour of the Big Apple Circus, back in 1993. (As to tying people to wagon wheels, I plead the fifth.)

Grr..I always forget to unscreen! Sorry sorry.

Thanks much for the feedback. This is a very different entry for me, so I really appreciate your comment.

Is it wrong of me to laugh at "he's thicker than the others"?

That caught my attention, too. So wrong, but so funny!

Not the circus training the guy was hoping for, I'm sure!

Like others, I loved the matter-o-factness and simplicity of the lines "He's thicker than the others. This is going to be a rougher ride."

Great piece! :)

I'm kind of disgusted with this woman (sorry), which I guess is to your credit - the craft at writing the piece and the take on the prompt has obviously been very well done. Congrats :)

Heh! Well, she's not a character I'm fond of, I'll admit. :) Thank you!
