Touch Me—Feel Me—Feed Me— Kiss Me!

Mary was not sure what was more surprising, that her handsome, swarthy boss had asked her out, or that she was sitting next to him on these soft, velvety cushions. Gently, softly, he took hold of her fingers with his strong, coarse hands, hands that were calloused and roughened from working on his ranch every weekend. He felt so strong and powerful; it made her heart pound against her chest. Entwining his toughened fingers about her own, he pulled her close. She could feel the indentation of his ring from the pressure of it against her skin as well as the hard, rippling muscles of his thick, strong chest beneath the silky smooth fabric of his shirt. His body felt hard as a rock. Running her soft hand across his firm, unyielding chest, she could feel each individual sinewy muscle, each coil of which made her pulsate with excitement. As she stared into his deep brown eyes, she sensed the presence of two of his cool fingers upon her hot knee. And then he drew her soft, moist lips next to his. The coarse, tiny hairs of his beard tickled her with pleasure. It made her cool skin tingle and her heart thump against her chest more rapidly as those strong, hard fingers slowly and softly inched up her velvety thigh. . . .
