Welcome back to Weekend Writing Warriors and Snippet Sunday, weekly Sunday hops where writers share 8–10 sentences from a book or WIP. This scene continues a few lines after last week’s, as 20-year-old Katya Koneva has just arrived at an off-campus Halloween party for her first date with notorious skirt-chaser Dmitriy Voroshilov.
Dmitriy, an ensign in the Naval Reserve, is dressed as a magician, and the eight other guests have similar normal costumes. Katya volunteered to wear a very sexy costume, but now she feels extremely underdressed beneath her long red cape. Had she known no one else would be wearing a risqué costume, she never would’ve worn it, but Dmitriy presses her to reveal herself.
Katya sets the flowers on a small bureau with a display of Halloween cards, novelty candles, macabre dolls, and a homemade Halloween tree. Casting her eyes downwards, she lets her cape fall to the ground.
Dmitriy takes in all her bare flesh and the outlines of her body, showcased in a tight, strapless, black bathing suit, black high heels, and black fishnet stockings. He begins salivating at this unexpected delight, and feels his trousers growing tighter under his thankfully long jacket.
“What did you do to get such a sweet dish?” the pirate asks. “Are you sure she’s such a good girl? I could never get a good girl to wear such a revealing costume.”
“She’s such a good girl, she’s never even kissed a man at the age of twenty,” Dmitriy brags. “Unless something’s changed since I last spoke to her about the matter.”

Katya kills Dmitriy’s arousal very quickly with a well-placed fist, as a warning for what’ll happen if he shares such personal information with company again!
For anyone who’s been following my October series about classic silent horror films with landmark anniversaries this year, I’ll be discussing The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari on Monday and Wednesday, and the original Lost World on Friday. Of course, I’ve saved the best for last, and will have several posts about The Phantom of the Opera in the last week of October.
