Friday Night Lights

Its Friday night and the lights are on.

Fresh painted helmets gleam as the teams take the field of green amid the crushing screams of adoring fans. The ball takes flight through the crisp evening air, let the game begin.

She glides through the audience fluid, like a shark, her satin eyes undressing her opponents, sizing them up to the task. Deadly smile wrapped in pouty cherry lips, her best offense to move the ball ten yards further, trading flesh for a first down.

Fevers rise with each batted eye, teasing and tantalizing, young and old she is indiscriminate in her indiscretion. Golden bands just raise the stakes of her hard luck chase, drawing them deeper into the shadows beneath the bleachers.

Lust is her musk, built on a lie that if only you had it, then...you would feel young again, handsome again, alive again...playing on your deep dissatisfactions. A promise it will never deliver, only leave you empty and hollow, wanting more.

The game is done, 41-0, the final score. I wonder does she find her identity in the touchdowns she scored. I wonder do the boys that chased her into the end zone.

Its Friday night and the lights go out.

You're possibly the only person I know who can combine sex and football in a seduction post . . Im not sure what I mean about that but . .I just can't see the two mixing. Did I tell you I hate sport? Well football . .

What doth transpire under the bleachers, indeed! 8^O

This must be American football. You never see anything like this when you watch Sheffield Wednesday.

"She glides through the audience fluid, like a shark, her satin eyes undressing her opponents, sizing them up to the task."

My favorite line.

Daniel said...

The crowd comes together and a dark few prey on this gathering. This thought is kind of scary. Temptation can come in situations where we are trying to mind our own business. It's a slippery and evil one it is.

I spent many a friday nights watching my son's play under those friday night lights. You describe it so well and have made me miss those nights of standing out in the cold and sometimes snow.

Very seductive reading for a Saturday afternoon. But I like it, I have to admit.
;)

Those lights to inevitably go out. This is a drama I think begins for some in high school and never quite ends. Some are never satisfied.

Very intriguing post, Brian!

"She glides through the audience fluid, like a shark, her satin eyes undressing her opponents, sizing them up to the task."

I agree with Alix - that's my favorite line. :)

TechnoBabe said...

She knows enough to use what she has been given, looks and talent, and she uses them to her best advantage, huh.

Wings said...

That was unexpectedly different! :)

Kay said...

women always did play it better :)

Shadow said...

damn this is good!

Captain Dumbass said...

Great post, Brian. What's her name?

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

I liked the interplay here. I saw her more as a mythological figure - more that desire for "the good old days".

And Alan's comment cracked me up!

Trish and Rob MacGregor said...

Beautiful post, evokes lots of visuals!

King of New York Hacks said...

And you say I hit it out of the park ?? That took it out of the atmosphere !! Brilliant post and writing Brian. Too many great lines to just pick one. However, Subby's comment does bring back memories LOL

blueviolet said...

That was really good stuff. So provocative but yet in a beautiful way.

The Things We Carried said...

Brian, I alway leave yoou blog thinking, This guy can WRITE!

Betsy said...

Sounds steamy under those bleachers!

Brian Miller said...

this was based on an actual girl from the game last night, though maybe she did take on some mythical qualities. an embodiment of the lust that seeks our hearts.

Goofball said...

I'll never be able to "see" this much happening in a game of football. Basically I see them lining up endlessly over and over again. To me , a non-football lover I admit, it's a game where I hardly ever see anything happening ;)

The Retired One said...

Great images, Brian.
Seductive, exciting, descriptive.
Like sports and sex is to men. Is the lust really that different?
