“… so what do you think?” he asked.
What did she think? She thought that she could drown in the rich texture of his voice. She thought that his voice could wreak havoc as it gently caressed her sensitive nerve endings, sending her into dizzying spirals of sensuous ecstasy. She thought she didn’t want him to stop talking. But, he had stopped talking, hadn’t he? There was a pause in their conversation and he was waiting for her to say something, wasn’t he?
What was he waiting for?
Oh yes, he was waiting to know what she thought of his thoughts on the new range of lip balms his company was about to launch. He was bouncing off ideas and she was supposed to give her reactions. She was reacting, all right, and how!
“Could you run that by me once again?” she asked determined to prolong this delightful assault on her aroused senses for as long as she could.
“Of course,” he said, willing to oblige.
“I was thinking chocolate brown,” he said, “ you know because chocolate is probably the one thing which makes you feel….ummm..nice! You know nice… from within…”
Yes, nice from within. Like the way his lips on hers made her feel. Every jarring nerve in her body came alive with the mere thought of the gentle pressure of his lips. If she closed her eyes she could taste the heady pleasure of his molten kisses. Adrenaline exciting… just like chocolate. Yes, chocolate brown for the lips…
“… or maybe pink strawberry,” he said unaware of the effect of his words on her. “ Lips are supposed to be invitingly pink… like tender strawberries…”
And mischievous, she thought. Yes, lips ought to be mischievous. Playful, teasing. She pictured his lips tipping upward in a seductive smile, as she tugged playfully on his pout. The zing added to the sweet sensation of pure delight, when he parted her lips to claim her mouth. Sweet, with a little zing… strawberry lips…
“Are you even listening to me?” he asked, a little exasperation making his voice even more husky.
Was she listening to him? Sigh! Men!
“Of course I am! I am just thinking about what you just said,” she was amazed at how calm she sounded despite the crazy state of her nerves.
“… ok… so what DO you think?”
