Desire

Taylor’s hand stroked the fender with a gentle, loving caress. The car, with sleek lines and curves like a woman’s body, sat low and lean in the showroom. An almost sexual longing stirred within him.

This Porsche Carrera GT, so beautiful, luxurious and powerful, wanted him also; he knew this to be true. He cupped the smooth body, tilting his head, considering the sticker adhered to the window. She was fast and tight, with six-speed manual transmission, redlining at 8400 rpm and a top speed of just over 300 mph.

He turned away, sighing, his desires unfulfilled. Maybe someday.

I'm sure there are these clandestine affairs going on in various automobile showrooms the world over. Wonderful descriptions.

Wonderful descriptions. I agree with Tara. There's probably not a luxury car dealership around that hasn't served asa setting for this story!

I've had that sort of relationship with the occasional bright red 1964 Ford Mustang at car shows! :)

LOL! My husband spent the afternoon in the garage with his new sports car just today. Better than a new girlfriend I guess ;)

Visiting from the 100 words blog hop - enjoyed your piece!

That would be kilometers per hour; not miles.

I had also observed that my husband has that same feeling with that car. It's his desire that someday he will also have that, his baby.:-)
