Ginger keyed the door lock and walked into Room 57. “Hello? Room service. Anyone here?” She walked in bringing the cleaning cart inside, door ajar. Something wasn’t right, and she picked up the heavy mop to use as a weapon. Two months ago, she’d surprised a couple having mad passionate sex in the tub. The man had been startled and swung at her. This time she was taking no chances. “Hello?”
She heard a muffled noise as she approached the bathroom. “Hello?”
Ginger opened the door. In the tub there was a man dressed in rubber, handcuffed and wearing a husky mask. She blinked, rubbed her eyes and tilted her head to one side as she looked at the man.
She stood there, and the giggles took over. Then she looked around the room. On the mirror there was a note. She walked over to read it.
“Dear Room Service,
Sorry for the disturbance, but, Reggie was a bad dog. He ate all the chocolate at his fiancé’s hen party and wouldn’t replace it. His punishment was to be found by you. It is up to you as to how soon you choose to release him before checkout time. Keep in mind that his wedding is at 2pm on the 5th.
The chocolate deprived bridesmaids.
Ginger kept giggling. She’d heard of silly going ons at the hotel, but had never run into one. She walked over to Reggie. “So, you ate all of the chocolates at your fiancé’s party?”
He nodded. “Mmmmph!”
“So, what will you do for me to let you go?” She looked at her phone. It was 11am. “You have three hours before your wedding.”
“If you’ll behave, I’ll take off the mask so you can talk. Will you behave?”
Reggie nodded. Ginger reached down and carefully pulled him up into a sitting position. Then she wriggled the mask off. Reggie gasped and shook his head.
“You’re welcome. Now, what are you going to do for me?
“Will you marry me?”
Ginger smiled. “Promise to never raid a party ever again?”
“I promise. I love you Ginger.”
She bent down to undo the cuffs and help him out of the tub.
Funny prompt. Especially as I’m in a hotel for the weekend. Business conference. And… I just bought some very expensive chocolates. 🙂 Our dear host’s prompt today was:

I almost messed up. For whatever reason, I read it as 2000 WORDS. Good thing I checked. 🙂 Hope you enjoyed my twisty tale.
