(Author’s note: Y’know, I feel really bad. I haven’t communicated with y’all in the comments in a month. A lot has happened in this month, mind you, but that doesn’t mean much. So, in order to make sure I actually get back to you all, I’ll be spending part of the weekend responding to all the comments that have come in.
I appreciate how everyone who has commented so far, and I am really grateful for everyone keeping me moving in this writing thing. It’s been a tough couple months for writing, but I think I’m close to being able to bust out and really get things going. Now…here’s today’s Fictioneers!)
Shame On The Moon
by Miles H. Rost
Minjin’s father slammed open the door.
“What was that sound?!” he growled. His daughter was sitting at her desk, writing in her book.
“I have been doing homework, father. What was the sound?”
He furrowed his brows, and turned.
“Never mind. My daughter is great, and I heard nothing.”
He closed the door behind him.
Minjin counted to 10, then smiled as she opened the window again, and brought out her binoculars. Looking through them, she peered into the open windows of the nearby fitness center.
“Come to mama,” she drawled, ogling the men exercising to the light of the moon.
Minjin, you naughty girl! Why not join the fitness centre? Why use binoculars?
First thought on my mind: She’s underage.
Ooh! I like this reversal on a Peeping Tom!

A Peeping Tomi? XD
Peeping Minjin! Ah! Nice take indeed.
Better cover up, or she may spy on YOU! XD
Ha Ha! :)))
Oh, the little minx!
Click to read my FriFic tale!
She needs something to do instead of studying like her father always wants her to do.
Good on you Minjin!
HA! If you only knew!
Love this, the gender stereotype tuned on its head, nice stuff!
Honestly, you sometimes end up seeing this in certain parts of the world. I know there were at least two different Korean women trying to spy into my apartment while I lived over there. Dunno what exactly they thought they’d see…
I’m sure Minjin’s interested in their beautiful minds as well 😉 Made me laugh and thank you for the Bob Seger song. Good on you with persevering to find time to write. I know so well how life gets in the way sometimes.
Minjin, I think, had enough with beautiful minds…considering how often she studies. She wants to study something more…interesting. Like hardbodies!
Great to read a such different take, youmade me smile
Excellent! I hope the music helped!
Lovely story. Dad better put a lock not only on the door but on the window as well. Nicely done.
What Dad don’t know won’t hurt her.
