Violet strolled into their bedroom after her shower, fluffy robe tied neatly at her waist. Long legs and feet bare, toes painted siren red. Smooth dark hair swung over one shoulder as she bent forward to kiss him.
Book forgotten, he hooked one finger into the neck of her robe, pulling her closer until she could feel his warm breath. His hands slid inside her robe, finding soft, damp curves. The robe fell away and she felt his approval as she snuggled into his embrace.
That flowed well. Tapping siren red-painted fingernails on the keyboard, she typed more of Virtual Love…
My theme this year is 100 word fiction. (So, no, don’t count this line!)
Her eyes fluttered open to feather light kisses on the back of her neck, that sensitive spot behind her ear, then her jaw, his morning whiskers rasping lightly against her face. She turned fully in his arms, her hands softly stroking his hair, then his face, then curling into the soft brown strands on his chest.
She could smell the minty scent of his toothpaste and covered her face with one hand as she climbed out of bed to rush into the bathroom. When she returned to the bedroom a small, red-wrapped rectangular box lay on her pillow and he watched her approach through those gorgeous sapphire eyes.
She pounced on the gift excitedly, pulling off the ribbon and paper quickly, exclaiming in delight at the sparkling charm bracelet filled with beautiful charms representing their life together these past seven years. A pineapple for their Hawaiian honeymoon. A typewriter to symbolize her career. A tiny, three-tiered wedding cake. A heart with a ruby chip to represent their love for each other. And in the box, still to be added, a baby carriage?
Her brown eyes widened in dismay as he splayed his fingers over her still flat tummy.
“But I just found out for sure yesterday. You guessed?”
He shook his head, smiling, and pulled her close. “You’re even more beautiful than usual. More sensitive. So I hoped.” That was all they spoke as she covered his face with kisses and then eventually one thing led to another…
Leaning back from her computer, satisfied with her work, she placed her right hand over her slightly rounded belly and smiled to herself…
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
You can find the first part of Virtual Lover here.
They slept the sated sleep of lovers exhausted, entwined in each other. Even as one stretched and turned, the other moved, drawn like a magnet. The dance repeated until early morning light crept into the room and bright blue smiled into velvety brown. They reached for each other again and soft moans and hums of pleasure filled the early morning air.
Then once again exhaustion overtook and they slept until the tantalizing aroma of freshly brewed coffee crept through the house and once again icy blue smiled into warm brown. She closed her eyes briefly, planning just to relax another moment.
Then she felt the touch of butterfly wings above her right eye as he placed her coffee with just the right touch of cream on the night table and slowly and gently began kissing her awake…
She leaned back in her chair, savoring the warmth and richness of her cup of coffee and the scene she had just written.
