Anticipation

“We said we weren’t going to do gifts this year.” He frowned and sighed, shuddering at the thought of the mall crowds. “Now I have to buy you something, it’s pretty much the rule.”

She put her hand over her mouth, trying to contain an unfeminine snorted chuckle. “Oh, I don’t think you’ll have to worry about this being a gift.” A sultry grin followed her words. “Or you won’t by the time you’re done with it.”

The box, garish in colored paper and with a ridiculously over-sized bow on top, sat on the table between him them. He looked at it, she looked at him and grinned. He looked at her, and she pointedly looked at the box and couldn’t help grinning even wider.

His tongue slipped across his lips, and he asked knowing it wouldn’t do any good. “So, what is it?”

Her eyes were wide with innocence as she carefully lifted one corner of the box, letting it fall back to the table. “I think… it’s not a pony. No, definitely not a pony.”

He tried to scowl, but grinned instead. “So when do I get to open it?”

She shrugged. “Whenever you want, actually.” She sat back in her chair, watching him, enjoying the conflict, the way his eyes went from the package to her and back.

“What’s the catch?”

Her eyebrow rose and dropped. “Good question. I will tell you one thing about it: The longer you’ve gone without coming, the easier it will be for you.” She pushed her chair back, stood up and gently kissed him on the head as she walked by. “And the better it will be for me.”

He lifted the corner of the box, and let it drop. No sound or rattle told him what the contents were. And he wondered how long he could wait.

    So, it’s the new year, this story is driving me crazy.
    What *WAS* in the box?

      Well, to tell the truth, I have no idea. I just tried to set up a scenario, and let people fill in the blanks with whatever made it hot for them, according to their kinks and desires. I know that’s not much of an answer, but it’s really the only one I’ve got right now. Sorry about that.

    You’re telling me I’ve been curious for AGES over nothing.

    Well played sir, well played sir.

      Well, it sounds awfully negative when you put it that way… But yeah, sorry, it’s really just whatever the reader wants it to be. Oops?

        No it’s not. We all (except for the simple one) know what’s in the box. And yes, it’s still sitting there, waiting.
