Satisfaction by LaRonda Coleman
I asked readers and authors to write a short story or poem to this prompt: His misty black eyes pierced her soul and caused her body to tremble. He began to speak.
*Disclaimer- Mature readers only.
His misty black eyes pierced her soul and caused her body to tremble. Her eyes tracing over the silhouette of his lips. She hardly noticed she was biting her bottom lip. In that moment she felt an oddly familiar sensation breezing down her neckline, following the course of her pulsating veins…hunger! She began to imagine kissing his lips, caressing his frame as he pulled her closer and closer. Returning the kiss, he gently stroked her nipples as they pierced through her blouse. She began to tremble. Her legs became weak and in that moment he led her to the couch slowly lying her down. His fingers gently gliding down to her thighs maneuvering his way to her womanhood. Slowly he inserted his fingers deep inside as she took a long, deep breath. She could no longer contain herself as she reached the peak of orgasm. Tears of pleasure streaming down her cheeks. He slowly begins to kiss her, sliding his tongue between her lips and into her mouth. As they kiss, he penetrates her with his swollen manhood. She whispers, ‘Oh God, thank you. I have so missed this feeling”. Paige! Did you hear me? he asks.
