Excerpt from the novel ‘SOME PLAY CHESS’
Kenneth danced his way around Jessica, picked up the gift box and handed her the package. “For ten wonderful years,” he said, whispering in her ear.
Jessica took the box. The whole of everything was so overwhelming that she dropped heavily onto the edge of the bed, then looked up at Kenneth. He brushed a strand of hair from her face and caressed her skin before nodding, indicating that she should open the package. She held the box nervously, tempted to place it back in his hands. As exciting as the whole thing was it was also frightening. Her heart was racing and she felt as though she was walking on thin ice, about to fall through. Curiosity got the better of her and she slipped the bow from the heart-shaped box. The wide, red, silky ribbon lay draped over her hand before slowly slipping through her fingers and onto the floor. Her hands shook as she lifted the lid. Wrapped in a swath of silvery lace was a very expensive white-trimmed, scarlet, French-maid’s costume. She took the garment from the box and held it before her. Seeing the cut-out holes around the breast area, her nipples immediately hardened.
She did not even notice the white fish-net stockings, still in the box, until she saw the garter straps that hung from the panties. Seeing the slit that had been cut in the crotch of the panties, she drew the costume against her chest. This whole thing seemed so wild – wild and exciting – and deep down she knew that she wanted everything Kenneth was offering
Question: What should Jessica do? Accept the gift? But if she does, where will Kenneth take this? Will she be enough for him? Will it light a fire of desire that Jessica cannot satisfy?
Answer: Jessica accepted the gift – for she felt certain that Kenneth only wanted to please her. What could be the harm? Kenneth loved her and would never ask her to anything ‘too’ wild and crazy…would he?
Could not put ‘Some Play Chess’ down. I find Linda’s writing addicting, and cannot stop reading. I am half way through C’heckmate’!
