Charlotte "Charli" Maguire pushed open the door and entered Erotic Treasures. Clutched in her hand was a tiny square she'd clipped from a freebie newspaper. In the lobby, no less than five glass cases displayed plastic blow-up dolls in the most amazing, impossible sexual positions she'd ever seen.
"May I help you?"
Charli looked over her shoulder and offered a weak smile to the clerk dressed in the bright pink mini. "Er…"
The woman laughed. "Come on. Look through all my treasures." She gestured toward the large room filled with shelves upon shelves of sex toys. "I'm sure you'll find something you like."
Charli marched to the woman and thrust the advertisement at her. "I want this, okay?"
The woman looked at the little paper square and smiled. "Excellent. The Dragon Double Dong is in our vibrator section."
Charli nodded. She followed Miss Beautiful, determined to buy the dong, damn it. "We just got these in," the woman said. She removed a key from her pocket and unlocked the glass case. She opened it and plucked out a plastic-encased double-headed vibrator. "Rookery Cove Aphrodisiacs makes the best sexual aids you can buy."
Charli took the package from the woman and examined it. Then she noticed the price tag. "Oh my God. Is this how much it costs?"
"Trust me," said the clerk. "It's worth every dime. I think it will surprise you."
"Everything surprises me," said Charli. "For instance, I was engaged to a gay man, and I didn't even notice." The memory flashed and stole the rest of her words. Then she heaved a breath and spilled the whole story…
"Derbie?" She pocketed the key to her fiancé's apartment and put the casserole she'd baked for their dinner on the kitchen counter. That's when she heard the moan -- a long, low sound that had her running to the bedroom and flinging open the door.
Derbie was naked. This alone would have made her stop and gape given that she'd never seen him in the buff. However, he was not only nude -- he was on hands and knees, his ass the joyous recipient of a plunging cock. She stared at the gorgeous backside of the man who was pumping his rather sizeable penis in and out of Derbie. Numbly, she wondered what to do.
Apparently, the lovers hadn't heard the bedroom door open. Before she could alert them to her presence, the man fucking Derbie groaned and came. His fingers squeezed Derbie's hips as he shoved his cock deeply between the buttocks, his expression suggesting an exquisite orgasm claimed him.
Charli witnessed his pleasure with a great deal of envy.
He pulled out of Derbie. He removed the condom, tossing it to the floor, and begged Derbie to turn over. They were so involved with their lovemaking, neither man noticed her. She watched as the man sucked Derbie's cock, her own mouth salivating, her own fingers clenching. A few moments later, her fiancé cried out, his long pale fingers clutching the bedcovers as he spilled his seed into his lover's mouth.
Charli wasn't exactly shocked to find out Derbie was gay. Heck, it wasn't even too much of a surprise to see that his bedmate was none other than his best friend, Robert. No, what astounded her was the sudden urge to leap onto the bed and join them.
Before Derbie, she'd had very few sexual encounters. With Derbie, the sex was sparse, but even so, she'd loved him. Her father and three older brothers hadn't made dating easy for her, but they'd liked Derbie. Somehow, they must've known he wasn't doing anything too naughty with her.
Eventually Derbie and Robert had moved to Hawaii and gotten married. They were so happy together. And she was jealous and lonely and sex-deprived.
"Have you ever been in a polyamorous relationship?"
Charli blinked, trying to assimilate the question. Oh, God. Had she just spilled her guts to a perfect stranger? Embarrassment heated her cheeks. "No. I've never even had, uh… you know, threesome."
The woman's gaze was kind. "Not everyone's idea of happiness matches societal expectations."
Well, that just about summed up Charli's life in a nutshell, didn't it?
