Soft Petals

I would never want to keep you  from the eyes of everyone else, but you're just out of my reach,  a reminder carved into me about  the distance between skins. Someone else always sees  what I first saw in you,  never the infinite layers beneath,  never the immutable heart I can feel  beating so perfectly with my own.  It seems no one cares to see that side of me,  I'm all flesh and lies...Read On

Power Play - the Finale (5)

The games between Ted and Becca reach a climax.

“Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power.” ― Oscar Wilde Over the next few days, Ted began to realize how profound an experience he and Marcia shared that night. She found the freedom to give in to her desire, and he learned how powerfully impacted he was by her being unafraid to sexually express them. In his mind, the fact that he lied about his...Read On

It Was a Hotly Unusual Occasion

She hadn’t planned it and it wasn’t her idea ... but it was all the hotter for that

Em was in a very unusual situation. It wasn't that she was lying nearly naked with her legs spread wide open in the middle of a super-king-size bed in an expensive hotel suite. It was certainly not that her fuck-me's and her little cocktail dress were lying in a wantonly discarded heap where they had been thrown after they were rather warmly removed. The fact that she had then briefly worn...Read On

The Space Between - I - Intersecting

I was born the hour I met you .... ~ Linda Goodman

The Space Between – I The studio was a loft on the fifth floor of a converted century old brick warehouse in an older section of the city. Sometime in the 1960s the warehouse had been renovated to contain two suites on each floor, except the first floor, which was a coffee shop. The old big commercial elevator with the gated front had been refurbished. A large wooden staircase circled...Read On

Ice

Stalingrad, December 25, 1942. Winter blankets everything, turning the landscape bizarrely beautiful. If you look carefully, you can make out shapes under the hoarfrost and snow. Burned out tanks and piles of brick and steel that were once buildings litter the frozen battlefield that was once home to over 400,000 Russian men, women, and children. Now the corpses outnumber the living. You...Read On

Addictive

Right in all the wrong ways.

I thought of him again last night. His image always comes to me when I’m alone, vulnerable. I remember the way we met, the way we lived. I was always so in awe of him, so breathlessly excited that he actually wanted me. I thought of the weight of his arm around my shoulders, the smell of tobacco, whisky and cheap aftershave. The bar he used to go to, that awful seedy place, all men except...Read On

Human connection in the aftermath of horror

I have never seen anything more orange than an African sunset. On that day, it was more surreal than any other, before or since. It was as if the entire sky seared with the bloodshed it reflected. The sun, however, too ashamed of what it had witnessed, was nowhere to be seen. It left the squalid landscape drenched in an unworldly monochrome. I had no other reason to hold my head up. ...Read On

What price, curiosity. Part 2 Oblivion

It's Tom's turn to ponder what might be; to let his curiosity burn.

Tom sighed moodily, nudged a shell with his foot and glanced at his watch; he swore he could see the hands stop and shudder backwards. “Bloody hell,” he muttered under his breath. He heard himself sigh again and swore, “Fuck, I sound like a bloody sixteen year old girl.” Bending, he scooped up a small stone feeling its smooth contours with the pad of his thumb before heaving it out to...Read On

Collapse

Everything else dims as you come to me,  our skin flushed with wine and need,  our fevers ready to meet tonight while the stars burn as we often do. Patiently illuminating space while  waiting to swell and burst,  to become shimmers and sparks  charging every particle of the air.  I collapse with you,  contained as you disrobe,  an aching anticipation throbbing  more with every bare curve...Read On

Synthetic Hours

Violet's night job is taking a toll...

Flashing blue light and a blasting alarm jarred Violet awake. The light turned red, bathing the bare walls in a hellish glow. Shift change. Two hundred people were waking up, removing their wires, pulling back the sheets. Within seconds, the concrete chamber was echoing with the sound of hundreds of feet clad in traction socks landing upon its floor. Violet looked at the dimly...Read On

Jenna felt clumsy and awkward, as if she were in her great aunt Myrtle’s china room as a bumbling eight year old. Everything around her glittered. Her gawkiness hadn’t gotten much better with age.

Waves of imperfection crashed over her but everyone else glided over the gleaming floor, chatting...Read On

Recapitulation

Cheryl accuses Drew of using her, relents, and explores another facet of her sensuality.

Cheryl was withdrawn the following morning at brunch in the dining room. She’d barely spoken to Drew as they had showered, dressed, and prepared for the day. “What’s on today’s agenda?” Drew asked, trying to lighten the mood. Cheryl glared at him across the table. “You want to just tour around the island?” he suggested. “Or, maybe you’d prefer to spend it by the pool? This is our last...Read On

The bed, a heavy four-poster with a canopy frame, was positioned at the very center of the room. At first sight it was an imposing structure, a fusion of dark carved woods and burnished metal in an old-world Mediterranean style. As he circled it,...Read On

A Kitty Comes to Visit

Kitty Girl visits me for the first time, and I do my best to make the night a memorable one.

I was nervous like hell. We had chatted endlessly about it, and what I had felt when she had proposed a visit at my place had been astonishment at her trust in me and growing excitement. I had pictured the moment and planned all kinds of things to entertain her, but now that the time of her arrival came closer, I found myself running a trench into the carpet and sweating my hands off. ...Read On

Illicit Affair- Chapter 2-New Boundaries

Can Gabriel still work with his intern after what happened last Friday?

Rachel’s stomach was in knots as she walked into her law firm on Monday morning. She hadn’t seen or heard from Gabriel during the weekend (not that she was expecting to), but the incident that had happened in his office felt so surreal. A part of her had wanted it to be just a dream, but at the same time, she felt odd satisfaction, as if her disloyalty evened the score between her and...Read On

Succubus and Incubus

The exquisite pain of love, forever.

Krystyna stares at me in the pale light of the station café, irises made pure black by her contacts. She is starting to look preternaturally white; we’ve put off our feed too long this time. “You’re hungry, Krys.” “So are you, you look like a ghost.” She stirs her coffee, licks her spoon, her full lips parting for the tip of her forked tongue. She is as exquisite as the day we met,...Read On
