Random Girl does "Risk" - Studio30 Plus Weekly Prompt

This week's prompt from the good people at Studio30 Plus is: RISK
I know a little something about this from a few different angles. I wrote a couple versions of this but this is what I'm feeling for it today, something short and sweet. Enjoy!

RISK



I know that walking into this hotel room with him is a risk.

I trust him; I just don’t trust myself to be here with him.

He will be a perfect gentleman, if I want him to. But I don’t

I am doing it again.  Opening the door and inviting trouble in.

I know exactly what I am doing. This is not a surprise. I am not a girl that needs to be talked into things.  Not one who needs to be persuaded or lied to. Compliments and flattery aren’t required. The story is already written. My decision is made before I walk in the door.

If my decision was no, I wouldn’t be here right now.

But I am here, right where I want to be.

  1. I would love to leave some insightful comment here, but that's not going to happen. Instead I will say that I loved this. The right and wrong, the mindset--good lord, I was there.

  2. What I've noticed about you and I is we really really really dig moral ambiguity. That's the strength of this piece and so many of your others. attagirl.

  3. That's the thing about making what we know as the "wrong" choice that makes it so attractive to us. The thrill, the rebellion against what we're told we're supposed to do.

    To me, this post sums that up so well.

  4. A lot of us can relate to that kind of situation. Unfortunately I can completely relate to it.
    Thanks for bringing back a bunch of memories.

  5. Ohhh.. that kind of RISK. Makes more sense. I thought you were going to a hotel to play the game of world domination with some dude.

    This is much more interesting.

  7. @Abby: Thanks for coming along for the ride.

    @Lance: it's not so much that I dig moral ambiguity, I just seem to find myself stuck in the middle of it so often it feels like home now.

    @Vinny: I have blurred the lines between "right" and "wrong" so many times that I'm not even sure which is which at this point.

    OT: I sense disappointment....you wanted more detail perhaps?

    @Stef: hopefully I didn't drag you somewhere you didn't want to go love...

    SD: Although I am all about dominating the world, this particular instance did not involve board games. Maybe next time??

    @Bruce: I think you are on to something... you are figuring me out. Darn!

  11. Is it wrong that I imagine you in just a button down shirt ala Tom Cruise in "Risky Business" while reading this? ;-)

    Another stellar creation, my darling.~

  12. @Jewels: Yes, not time for pretense in my world these days. It is what it is...good, bad or ugly.

    @Tony: Thanks love!

    @kidkat: Not sure if it's good or bad that you can relate but glad you checked it out none the less.

    @sweet Kat: You are actually closer to fact that you might imagine. Were you peaking in my windows again??? I hope so!! *Mwah*!

  13. I.LOVED.THIS. This line, "I am doing it again. Opening the door and inviting trouble in." stood out for me. It's like I was looking in a mirror...

  14. @Rafa: Are you encouraging my "bad" behavior? That's sweet of you!

    @Yvonne: Well at least I am in good company with people who make questionable decisions at times

  16. Another great one Randy Girl! This gave me flashbacks to when I put myself in those sorts of situations.

    I gave you an award, too. It's over at my place when you're ready to pick it up. I know you don't need little ol me to tell you how wonderful you are, but I wanted to do it anyway. :)
