Tuesday Tales- January 23, 2018- Greasy

Today’s word for the Tuesday Tales gang is greasy. I’m still working on my thriller set in New York. The hero and his partners have captured some men engaged in human trafficking and are trying to get information on any other women in distress.

Check out the other tales here.


Even though I felt like I was running out of time to save my friend’s granddaughter, I had no choice but to accept I wasn’t going to obtain any information until our troops returned and I could get one of them alone. There was just wasn’t enough man power at the moment.

Deciding to leave them guarded by Dawn while I spoke to one of the women who was being held, I called her over. “Can you watch these gorillas while I see if anyone of the women know where Shannon might be or if they know of any other places the girls are hidden?”

“It’d be my pleasure.” She shot an angry glare at the one I thought was the leader. “Maybe I’ll take this guy down a peg or two while I’m here.” She grinned at me. “You know, so as not to waste my time looking after a bunch of sissy-pants, greasy-haired excuses for real men.”

“Watch your mouth, lady, just because you have us tied up doesn’t mean we can’t hurt you,” the one closest to her said.

“Whatcha going to do? Call me names?” Dawn yawned. “I’m already bored.”

Laughing at her as I walked away, I couldn’t help but admire her guts. She was too much like me for my comfort. Hell, she could be me…except in a skirt.

The thought of those long legs in a skirt sent my mind in a direction it had no place going at the moment. Or maybe not at any moment. I had to place her firmly back in the position of a partner, not a woman. It wasn’t fun but it was necessary. For all our safety.



  1. He’s getting hooked! Great action scene and then his thoughts. I especially love the sentence: The thought of those long legs in a skirt sent my mind in a direction it had no place going at the moment.

    • thanks Flossie. He’s fun to write. I am basing him on one of my cop friends who asked to be a character in one of my stories. LOL

      • He’ll be jazzed at seeing his doppelgänger in print.

      • Yeah, he will. He’ll be all about bragging. LOL

  2. What a great action scene!

    • thanks Vicki!

  3. I love her spunk! And I hope at some point he can indulge in those legs in the skirt – at least in his mind! Great job!

    • haha. I think he may just eventually be able to enjoy those legs. LOL

  4. I love how you sneak in a bit of sexual tension there at the end. The story is heating up, in more ways than one.

    • thanks, Jean. 🙂 Heat is good. 🙂

  5. You’re such a great cross-genre writer!

    • aww. thanks! I love messing around in many genres. LOL
