100 Drabble - Off Duty

Title: In front of and behind the easel
Prompt: Off Duty
Characters: Alexandra Eames/Robert Goren
Rating: T
Word Count: 111

Alex was excited. It was her second drawing course at the Brooklyn adult education center. Gone were all the bowls with fruits, flower bouquets and other still life subjects. This semester the class would start with human objects.

Her teacher promised something special for the third lesson: a nude man after three weeks of preliminary practice with mannequin.

Alex wasn’t sure if she should draw with a pencil or coal and made a few lines on her concept paper. As she looked up again from her easel she saw familiar but naked shoulders, strong arms and long legs. The model turned around and Alex met the surprised eyes of her partner.


  1. Oh now I would pay good money to see that!!! :-D If I were Eames I'd ask the model to come home with me so I could work on fine details. ;-)

  2. OMG!! I love the picture that is in my mind now. Thank you soooooo much. If that model came home with me I would never let him leave.

  3. @Music Wench: oh that is a very nice thought. I also think Alex needs a little more time with the model alone ;o)

    @Pat: ::snicker Yeah it would be hard to let him go again ;o)
