Stay Home

That sound when tender glass hits a hard surface, and you are just waiting for the sound of glass shattering, never came, thankfully.  The moment her foot hit the wine glass and tipped it over, he was over top of her on the rug and they both stopped moving immediately.  They looked at each other, frozen, except their raised eyebrows and grins that wanted to surface.

Simultaneously they both looked over his left shoulder towards the wine on the floor.  Taking the opportunity that he was distracted, she slipped out from under him, laughing once she got away.  His fingers had been traveling her body in search of what he wanted, making her laugh and jerk her limbs this way and that underneath him.  He was ruthless though and had her pinned down well against the silken fur warmed by the fire.

“Dammit!” he exclaimed, but it wasn’t about the spilled wine.

Grinning, she stood up in his shirt, and backed away, looking at him as she headed for the kitchen to grab a towel.  “That’ll teach you, now, won’t it?”

Before she ducked past the door frame, he looked up at her with his eyes over the rim of his eyeglasses, reaching to pick up the glass and move the fur rug away from the puddled Merlot. “I always get what I want… One way or another.”

Desire

He had laid down to rest, first sitting on the edge of his bed looking out the window.  There was nothing in particular he was looking at outside, but rather a mindless focus to let his thoughts roam.  The reflection in the window caught her silhouette faintly.  His gaze outlined the beautiful curves, following the line down the side of her body without her knowledge….

But…. She belonged to him, therefore… She’d feel something.

Reclining against some pillows, he leaned into them, re-positioning his hips where he sat.  He watched her prepare herself for bed, taking off this and putting on that.  There was something to adore about her routine and the little things she did.  It amazed him how the smallest of actions by her could set his mind reeling with lustful and carnal thoughts.

His mind had wandered into a daydream, already imagining his preemptive dejavu.  Their bodies together on the bed in a flash.  His hand grabbing her flesh roughly.  Lips.  Limbs intertwined.  Hands being pushed above her.  Bodies sliding against each other.  Her voice…. Or the mere intrinsic sounds that escaped from somewhere deep inside of her.

Snapping out of it from hearing his name, she had called to him, and he looked up at her leaning against the doorframe.  The smile that crept onto her face told him she could read his thoughts.  The look in his eyes told her what to do.

Kowloon Lives

kowloonlives

The walled city was said to be destroyed, but that didn’t explain why or how the soldier ended up there, again and again.  Each time he was stationed in China, he subliminally made his way to the sinful city.

It was very real.  He could see faces all over, seeking him to be their next customer for whatever they peddled.  His frame would brush against and feel the dense sidewalks of bodies. His ears filled with the noises of promises and desperation, while his nose inhaled the aromas of unique and authentic savors.  Walking along he was offered various promises of delight to supposedly cure his deep desires.  Some were to be used by him, others were offers of themselves for his pleasure… but there was only one he was seeking.

Her.

Once their eyes met, nothing else existed.  Time stood still.  She was the one who satiated his appetite like no one he had ever met before.  She pleased his sight with her soft body and skin.  She told him what he needed to hear and offered him her body’s responses.  She, was the only relief for his particular palate.  She knew no specifics about him, but she freed him.  With her, he was who he really was, and lived.

-[Bayde & Ori]- Something’s Afoot

stillworry-4000

Bayde began to hit his knees, exhausted from his journey back home.  Letting out a thick breath despite the crisp air around him.  He began to strip pieces of his armor and weapons off of him.   Once he was done, he dropped his head back a moment, closed his eyes, and took in and let out another deep breath.  Once he opened his eyes, he was looking right up the nose of his new friend.  “Yeah yeah I know… You’re probably thirsty.  We’ll get you something soon. I promise.”

Understanding, it sauntered off beside him.  Bayde sat back up straight, and mindlessly took his sword out of it’s sheath.  He held the blade up, admiring it’s shine in some places and dinginess in others.  After a few minutes passed, his eyes fixated on the brush in front of him as his thoughts went to his discovery of treason within the counsel.  The Elven King; Ori’Ziya’s father, was running him around from one kingdom to the next.  His orders were always something like “Smooth this over with them,” “Make them understand,” or “Find out….”  Some of the situations Bayde was put into were complex and almost incomprehensible. Although he was no longer human, he was still the same man he was before.  Bayde knew how to be loyal, dependable…. And wary.

Ori was keeping his new home up for him while he was away.  Bayde wouldn’t allow himself a moment to admit that he liked the thought.  To him it was purely sensible.  Looking to his right he watched the rare unicorn grazing quietly.  That was an interesting story; how he acquired the unicorn.  Bayde was about halfway through his journey home when a light whirring turned into a loud buzz as a band of unseelie fairies worked to trap Bayde on the road.  He honestly thought he was about to be served up as the main course of the evening.  His hands and arms were wound tight against him as he was roped with course and thorned vines.  When he stopped struggling, out of breath from trying to snap the vines and break free, he looked up to find wide-eyed fairies looking past him and backing away.  Then, suddenly, a cold, very wet…… nibble to his ear.  Bayde tried not to look surprised, since it was obviously attacker repellent at the moment, and calmly, he had turned to face a gorgeous white unicorn.  Needless to say, the fairies revered him and set him free.  Getting the unicorn to follow him home in front of them so they wouldn’t tie him up again though was another story.

Breaking his reverie, Bayde stood up and slid his sword back into it’s sheath.  Clucking for the animal to come to him, he petted it’s long face and smiled.  Turning towards the hill he was pretty sure he saw some movement…. That had to be Ori.

He began to walk towards the hill, and just as they crested over, he caught her white hair and gown against the bright white snow.  Smiling as he saw her look up, and smile at him and the unicorn.  Ori looked only a moment at Bayde before turning her attention to the animal and asked, laughing, “What have you got here?”

unicornob

Getting up from the ground, she walked towards them and the unicorn whinnied and stomped it’s hoof when she reached up to pet the animal’s face.  Being an elf, Ori wasn’t one to usually show too much emotion, but Bayde swore her eyes lit up and was enjoying the smile on her lips.  Just as she began to ask, “How did you –,” he cut her off, realizing she would begin to question his visit too.

“A rare mount for one who is equally as rare.”  Giving her one of his smiles, he nodded up at the unicorn, “Hop on.  Let’s go home.”

The unicorn nodded its head as though it understood, and Ori mounted up. “Bayde,” she began to say. “You shouldn’t go back to Court.  Not yet.  You don’t have many friends there.”

He sighed to himself, quietly, his face thankfully turned away from her as he led them both home.  He chose not to respond… He simply didn’t have the words yet.  In usual Ori’Ziya fashion though, him not answering didn’t deter her, and she pressed on.  “There have been whispers of treasonous acts and making you take the blame!”

Heading back over the hill, their home appeared, and Bayde finally stopped walking and offered Ori his hand to help her down.  He was quiet until he told the unicorn to go on, patting it’s rear end.  He watched the animal trot off to graze again before he turned back to Ori.

“You don’t get to where I am without making a few enemies, Ori’Ziya.” His tone was strong and sure. Looking down a moment, he took her hands into his, then looked back into her eyes.  Although he was home, he had a self-appointed mission now.  To reassure her, and despite not knowing everything, to not give her more to worry about.  “I made it back, just as I said I would.”

“You should stay here. Lay low for a while.” Ori suggested. “Let me see what else I can discover.” 

Bayde shook his head and pressed his lips together.  That wasn’t an option for him. “I’m a solider. I do not cower. Not before anyone.” 

They both knew that her father would expect him back at court in a day or two to discuss what happened on the excursion. He heard her sigh, and then set her jaw. It was his turn to look at her quizzically, but if he pressed, she’d reciprocate right now.   

Bayde simply nodded at her, and said, “I have a plan.”

Act Natural – [Fox & Curtis] –

justplayitcool-4000

Walking into the lounge of the mansion, Mr. Curtis looked around and began to approach Ms. Fox with purpose.  His stride was confident, but he did try to act as nonchalant as he could; nodding and smiling at a few faces as he picked up a peppermint from a crystal bowl sitting on the credenza behind one of the many couches in the room.  Popping it in his mouth, he sucked on it quickly and moved his jaw around before he stepped behind Ms. Fox.

Ms. Fox knew his touch so well that she was hardly ever startled by it.  Mr. Curtis raised his left hand to her shoulder and gently took her waist in  his other.  She brought her own left hand up, displaying the large rock they affixed to her wedding finger for their access onto the party’s guest list. He smiled and nodded at more guests as he greeted her.

Speaking over her shoulder, “Mrs. Jones.  How are you enjoying yourself this evening so far my love?”  As soon as she began to reply, he spoke lower, trying not to move his lips in a ventriloquist fashion, “Keep talking. Act natural. Play it cool.  I found her.” When Ms. Fox answered his question fully he beamed and brought her hand up to his lips, kissing her knuckles tenderly, keeping the charade of husband and wife up.  Ms. Fox smiled beautifully, giving a small nod to show she copied what he said while she answered him.

After a few couples made small talk with ‘Mr. & Mrs. Jones,’ they began to make their way into the main foyer where various activities were set up such as a dance floor,  photo booth and the main buffet.  Mr. Curtis escorted Ms. Fox through the crowd to the first landing of the circular stairwell, when suddenly, a two-person’d commotion came from the upper landing.

Coming down the stairs, escorted by three police officers and her husband, was Mrs. Minguez, with her hands behind her back in cuffs.  Mr. Curtis only understood bits of what they were yelling back and forth, but he thought quickly and grabbed Ms. Fox by the waist.  Everyone at the party was gaping up at the couple coming down, so to blend in, he led them backwards like they were getting out of the way, but moved them just on the other side of a wall next to the stairwell and pinned Ms. Fox against it like they were there for the privacy.

Ms. Fox turned her head to look out the doorway.  Mr. Curtis watched her eyes begin to blaze as her gaze fell on her uncle, Eleuterio Minguez.  “Shhh baby.  We’ll get our chance.”

As his wife was escorted out of their mansion, Eleuterio began to yell at his guests and swing his arms in a wide circle over and over.  “Vete de aqui!  Vete de aqui!”  Mr. Curtis began to move them both with the crowd, but made more of a sideways route than straight for the door.  By the time he had tucked them into the photobooth unseen, Eleuterio was slamming the front door shut and barking at one of his six guards in the room still.

Mr. Curtis moved his hands from Ms. Fox’s body now, reaching inside his blazer to draw his colt out of his holster.  Suddenly, he groaned when Ms. Fox bent down, pushing her ass into him to pull hers from it’s own strapping.  “For fuck’s sake Noa…. ”  He caught the way her cheek was raised once she stood back up, even though he couldn’t see her face completely.  She was grinning.  Son of a….. NOW?!  She was going to tease him… now?

“Just making sure you were loaded, Mason,” she quipped, turning her head to look at him over her shoulder a moment.

Mason whispered, “You always get like this when you hold that thing.”

Giggling softly, trying to not be heard, “Do I?  I didn’t notice.”

Mr. Curtis squeezed her ass hard in  his other hand, keeping an eye on the end of her gun, then froze once he heard her uncle and his guards were getting closer.  Leaning into the back of her,  his lips brushed against her ear as he spoke low.  “Ready?”

Breathless Dance

gardenblues-4000

Standing there, having just picked up his saxophone five minutes ago, he was merely running scales and simple warm-up melodies.  His own music lately seemed flat in spirit.  Since he was a young man he had come to this garden, and for some reason, good fortune, inspiration, or even clarity on life decisions came his way when he visited that spot.

After playing for over an hour, he felt the same.  No change.  Dropping his sax abruptly, he growled a moment into the space around him.  Trying not to grit his teeth at his frustration, he stared hard at his case on the ground near his feet, ready to throw his saxophone into it and pack up for home.  His thoughts, however, kept getting pulled, and in his anger he didn’t recognize what was happening.

He heard it…. A sound he couldn’t recognize and without thinking the reed touched his lips again.  Wetting it first, he felt a melody rise from deep inside of him.  He even began to sway and rock back and forth, his dance partner in his hands.  His fingers fluttered the keys, unlocking a rhythm that began to climb.  He opened his eyes, and that’s the first time he saw her, ever, but he wasn’t surprised.  She had already picked up on his cadence, and her body shivered and flowed with the song.  She was the closest she could be to his saxophone when their eyes locked.  The finale of the tune resonated in the air around them until all they were left with was the heavy breathing of their eminent longing.

Priorities

gettingdressed2-4000

He stepped into her dressing room, and closed the door quietly.  He leaned against the door and crossed one foot over the other, then his arms, and studied her; smiling all the while.  She was oblivious to his presence right now.  He enjoyed the candid mannerisms he observed as she checked her dress, and slipped on a necklace; clasping it behind her neck.  He was about to speak up, when he realized she was now looking at her hand.  The hand bearing the ring he gave her about 24 hours ago.

“Can you see the future in that thing yet?” he joked, pushing off of his stance and walking towards her at the closet.  His eyes didn’t move from her.  He rather liked watching her skin flush.

“It’s just new.  I can look at it if I want,” she quipped at him with a beautiful grin; her eyes following him in the mirror.

He leaned against the closet now, his body mimicking his earlier position; just reflected.  She turned side to side, now presenting her complete outfit to him.  “What do you think?  Will this suffice for your next surprise, Sir?”

takesforever

God she was beautiful…  He stepped closer, watching a blush rise to her cheeks again as she turned, leaning against the mirror.  He slowly picked up her hand with the ring, his eyes lifting to hers with a mischievous fire sparking.  She knew that look, and she began to giggle softly, shaking her head.  “Oh no…. No…. We have a schedule to keep!  You need to behave!”

He growled…. Turning to a moan as he regrettably turned and began to pull her towards the door.  “Yes. You’re right. You’re right.”

She gave him a soft smile; almost apologetic, but her words were full of sarcasm to tease.  “Time to work on your priorities…”

He had just opened the door to allow her to walk through, but he stopped…. Pausing… His eyes rolling up in his head.  He kicked the door closed and turned to her quickly, in time to hear her gasp.  He yanked her to him, and grinned wickedly.  Slowly, as he bent to kiss her bare shoulder, he told her, “Then allow me to show you the order of priority.”
