Confidence in Trifecta

(My apologies if my grammar is off. It's been awhile since I have written like this)

"The dream," he snarled. "Tell me."

Susan closed her eyes, sucked in one more breath, took him into her confidence, and confessed.

"I was on the beach, in the scorching hot sun. Out of nowhere a man appeared. He carried cold sodas." She had said the words "cold sodas" as if they were a weapon of choice. Joe felt that she was telling him that the sodas had weakened her and not the man that had brought them.

"So this man," Joe interrupted, "It wasn't me?" He had said it with his dapper eyebrows arched in a twisted awkward manner and his voice sissified so that she would know that he was teasing and not angry. He wanted to hear about this dream.

"No, silly, it wasn't you." She giggled out at him, almost too quickly. Catching herself she added "I'm sure that he was you in a dream sort of way. He was caring, polite, sexy, handsome, tender. And he had so much panache; just like you." Joe chuckled lightly, not knowing if she had used the wrong word or just didn't pronounce it correctly. Susan had a tendency to do both and he adored that about her. 

Joe leaned down and kissed her with fervor. "Did he have panache like this baby?" He growled at her in his beastly manner. Susan wasn't sure how to react as she watched while her husband suckled along her chest, running his whiskers against her. 

"Did he do this?" Joe asked, and worked his tongue around her skin in a slow pattern.

Susan took a deep breath and she gulped as his hand slid down her slender body, tickling across her stomach. "Did he touch you here?" 

He assumed by her moan that the man in her dreams had touched her in many places and he was eager to learn where. Joe held his hand against her and felt the ripple of her body.

Perhaps the dream could wait for another day. 
Time for reality.

  1. Wow, She's brave. I don't dream very often, but when I do, I don't say a word!

  2. Cute! I like your husband's 'dapper eyebrows'.

  3. It sounds like the reality is even better than the dream.
    Thanks for playing and come back for the weekend challenge.
