She finished her make up and went to put on her perfume. Her favorite scent wafted over her and she smiled thinking of the evening ahead.

She went into her closet and got out the dress, silky, sexy and a bit risqué. She hung it on the door and then went to put on her garters, hose and stilettos. 

As she sat down and began putting on one stocking she heard the downstairs door and smiled knowing he was home. She hurried to snap the garter in place and picked up her other stocking and repeated the process. She slipped on one stiletto as he walked through the doorway. She picked up the other shoe and met his eyes. 
He shut the door and locked it with a click. 

“You won’t be needing those” he said with a smile.

    1. thanks Malisa! I read a lot of fiction and know what I like and don't like... In my job I have to write reports which are concise and to the point so I guess it has crossed over into my "creative" writing. :)

  9. How much would it cost me to hear the end of this sordid tale featuring one of my favorite subjects, women in heels and hose? I have my credit card standing by, Barb.
