Saturday Spice – The Birthday Surprise

by Pepper on February 23, 2013

Indecent Encounters CoverHey all! Welcome to some Saturday Spice. Did you know it’s been just over two years since my first story was published? That short story — The Birthday Surprise — was featured in a fabulous anthology from Evernight Publishing, INDECENT ENCOUNTERS. All the stories in the book have a menage theme, and mine is no different. In this snippet, we’ll meet Melanie Blaisdell, who is just turning 40, and her much-younger landscape guy, Sandy. (They’ll be joined a little later by Sandy’s friend. Wes.)

Melanie stared up into the earnest expression of Sandy, her lawn maintenance guy. In the space of three minutes he’d gone from hunky, young enigma to something quite different. Before, there had always been a yawning chasm between them, made up of a mix of factors like age, gender, privilege, and employer/employee relationships. Suddenly, all of that was gone. He’d bridged that chasm entirely with his simple act of compassion.

And oh how good that felt! As she reached up and wiped away her tears, she was acutely aware of his clean male scent and the broad wall of his chest crowding her shoulder. His big, warm hand continued to caress her back, raising lovely tingles of goose flesh all over her body. Even her nipples were getting into the act now, tightening into hard little nubs of anticipation.

Oh. My. God.

She drew herself up. How inappropriate!

Here he was, offering her true friendship and sincere support, and suddenly all Melanie could think about was how much she wanted Sandy’s talented hands on other parts of her body. A long slow blush moved up her chest and warmed her face. She started to move away. He moved against her at the same time, and her arm came in contact with the firm, unmistakable ridge of an erection straining at the fly of his jeans.

An erection! Wait a minute. Did that mean this big strapping guy was sexually aroused too?

By her?

A thrill streaked through her as she struggled to focus on what he was saying.

“Well, what do you think? Wanna come with us?”

“To Lincoln City?”  

“Sure. We’re gonna make camp right on the beach, sleep in the back of the truck. I’ve got a camper shell that fits down over it. We’ll all be warm and dry.”

An enthusiastic grin lit up his whole face. Oh how she wished she could be that young and carefree again. To just be able to pick up and go and not worry about anything but where to park a truck. How great would that be?

And what about that other tantalizing thought that kept playing at the edge of her imagination? How great would it be to have Sandy touching her in all the places no man had touched her in way-too-many-months?  The goose bumps fizzled over her again and she let out a long sigh, wishing like anything that the erotic images going through her head were more than a silly fantasy.

But she wasn’t twenty-five anymore. She had to act like a grownup. She had work to do this weekend. And whatever the cause of that erection, she was certain that the idea of actually making out with a forty-year-old woman had to come in close to the bottom of Sandy’s list of favorite things.

“I’m sorry. I can’t. But thank you so much for offering.”

“You’d have your own bed,” he assured her, “if that’s what you’re worried about.”

His big gray eyes were so innocent. Weren’t they?

She felt herself blushing again.

“Oh I wasn’t worried about that—”

“You weren’t?” His pupils suddenly darkened and he leaned in closer. If possible, the erection pressing against her hip grew even more rigid.

Melanie’s mouth went dry. Keeping her eyes locked on his, she shook her head. “No, I wasn’t worried,” she whispered. Her belly did a crazy little flip at the avid expression on his face. Then Sandy lowered his head and took her mouth.  

And she let him.
