Amelie is one of the characters that I really enjoy writing. She’s a woman who enjoys the hunt for her evening’s entertainment. The story opens with her in a restaurant where she is eating alone. She is observant, has been watching the eyes of the men in the room since she came through the door. She knows what they are thinking and tells the reader as much.
The man, sitting two tables over, facing the front, memorized every inch of me as soon as I cleared the doorway. It was a bottom to top look. His face gave it all away and I could tell he appreciated what he saw when we finally made eye contact. He is in his fifties but fit, gray hair, blue eyes, and you can tell he has always been a charmer. He is wealthy from years of working in an office. He has bought his wife a number of pretty things which, usually means, he has had multiple dalliances over their years of marriage, none satisfying, just mere distractions. He is rougher with them, the secretary from the office or the bartender at his favorite watering hole. He is passionate with them, uses his strength when he fucks them wherever he can find room and time, the secretary across his desk, the bartender in the back room. He is no longer this way with his wife. He is instead, when they do make love, tender and careful. He doesn’t know why. If he were in the wild, I might take him home, just to teach him a lesson.
I love the way she thinks throughout the story. Amelie knows as much about herself as she does the men around her. She understands the power she had over men, the way that her body stirs them, but she also knows the end result of their fantasies, the reality of the situation that supersedes what they are imagining.
She is careful, observant, and strong. She knows what she wants and how to deal with anything that gets in her way. She addresses her prey from the very beginning as if she is writing the story to him, the man she will meet later, who is sitting at a bar that she will visit after dinner.
Like I said, she is one of my favorite characters but not just because of the way she thinks or talks but also because of the way she handles herself in the bedroom. She is playful and teasing. Foreplay is one of her favorite games and she relishes the way it makes her feel.
I climb up halfway between your legs and kiss your neck, lick the sheen of sweat that has risen there. My nipples drag along your chest sending shivers through me. You sigh as I kiss my way down your chest. I stare up at you as I plant each kiss. I stop on each nipple and let my tongue graze the little bit of flesh and they stiffen. I twist my fingers in your chest hair and tug playfully. You watch me and quietly chuckle. I look down and see my new toy. I put my hands high on your thighs and kiss down around your belly button. Your breathing speeds up; I can almost hear your heart banging against your chest. I spread your legs a little wider and slip off the couch onto my knees in front of you.
