Faked It

100 words about a fake sex tape featuring a famous actress

The video is so pixelated it’s impossible to tell if this is us or not. I know it isn’t. Fake me’s voice might fool everyone else, it’s not fooling me.

Like everybody, I loathe the sound of my own voice. I hate film premieres when I’m forced to sit through my latest blockbuster and pretend I enjoy it.

Whoever’s behind the tape, they know about the affair. Still, these are actors playing other actors in a sterile hotel room. They’re not us. Her voice doesn’t grate on me like my own does.

I smile at the journo.

‘It’s a fake.’


This is one of these stories I suspect may be too long to fit into 100 words. What do you think?

  1. Oh, I can definitely see this being longer – the tension building up between the star and the reporter. Did she, didn’t she. I like the idea that even though it’s a fake and she can say so with a clear conscience, her conscience is far from clear. Great stuff – would love to read more

    1. That’s what I found most interesting, too. I had a line in there about saying it’s fake without having to lie, but it had to go. I might turn it into something longer … Thanks, Lynn 🙂

    1. Well, once I’ve woken up from hibernation, I might do something with it. Yes, hearing my own voice makes me shudder. I toyed around with the idea of recording some of my stories and making them available, but I’m not sure I could go through with it… Thank you 🙂
