WHAT IS LOVE?
(Thank you ’beautflstranger’ for throwing me a word.. I really appreciated it.)
As Sébastien softly curled his strong arms around Amber’s naked body, he whispered
“Do you know what love is?”
On rolling her over so he could read the look in her eyes, he ran the pad of his thumb along her lower lip and in such a gentle seductive tone, he clearly repeated,
Watching her brown eyes intently for any sign of an answer, he came nose to nose with her and as he skimmed his lips with hers, causing rivulets of shivers to cascade down her spine, she asked,
“Oh my baby girl,” he exclaimed. “The moment I first saw you, it was then I realized what love really was. Love is not merely passion or lust for that matter, love is when your brain goes all crazy, butterflies dance away in your stomach and you cannot think of anything else but being with that one person who makes everything else fade away.
Quite simply, Amber, you are my definition of the word ‘love.’”
As she shifted slightly underneath his weight, she let out a little sigh and as he nibbled the side of her ear, he wickedly suggested,
“Now I have you beneath me, do you want me to show you the passion and lustful side of love?”
“Phew, she laughed. “After that rather blinding definition of love, I thought you would never ask! Oh and Sébastien, yes I do know what love is.”
Teasing her parted centre with his now fully hard erection, he growled,
“Tell me right now or I won’t fuck you.”
“Well,” she giggled, “It goes like this… Love can be very strong feeling of affection linked with sexual attraction or it can be adoration, devotion, desire, and fondness among many other words. Now will that suffice or do you want a more detailed explanation?”
Slowly nudging him inside her, as he felt her tighten around him and grip him firm, he in a low guttural groan declared,
“It will do for the moment! Now how would you like me to ravish you? Hard, fast, with carnal burning passion, like a raving crazed animal or soft, gentle and caring, like a true French gentleman?”
On hearing the gasp escaped from her lips, he took that as the answer to his question. Carnal and burning, like a raving crazed animal it was to be.
