My Every Desire
by Sharon Schafer

I knew when I hung up the phone; I was in for a real treat. He was glad I called, and said he'd be over shortly. I craved what only he could give me.

My body trembled in anticipation as I counted the minutes. How long had it been? I couldn't remember the last time I had experienced such pleasure. His voice told me he was eager to please.

"I have just what you want," he whispered.

I licked my lips and whispered softly. "You do? Oh, I'm so glad. Can you hurry?" I asked breathlessly.

"Sure thing," he replied. “I can be there in about thirty minutes.”

“Can’t you get here any sooner?" I pleaded.

He was silent for a moment, and then spoke. “I can try. I want to please you, but I have one little thing to do first.”

“Okay,” she replied with resignation. Please hurry though. I can’t wait much longer.”

“I will hurry as fast as my little car will take me.”

The minutes passed like hours. Why was the time going by so slowly? He did say he had a few things to do first. I would just have to be patient. It was hard to be patient though, when I knew my every desire would be satisfied in just a few short minutes.

I was about to call him back, when I saw the car pull up. I watched as he got out. He saw me and smiled.

I flashed him a broad smile, and licked my lips in anticipation.

“Boy she is really hungry for it, I can always tell when they want it bad,” he thought to himself.

I opened the door. “You’re late,” I said.

“I’m sorry,” he replied. “I hurried as fast as I could.”

I put out my arms and he obliged.

“Here you go, one large pizza, hot and spicy.”

“Oh thank you,” I replied. “I haven’t had a pizza in so long; I’ve been dying for one.”

“Have you ever wanted something so bad, you’d do anything to get it?” She asked.

“Well, yes I have, but it had nothing to do with food.”

“Anything else I can do for you?” He asked as he sized me up.

“Not right now, the only thing that will touch these lips is this hot and spicy pizza.”

He smiled as I handed him the money...

“Okay lady, enjoy yourself.”

“I will, “ I promised, as I closed the door. I could tell he wanted to stay longer, but I wasn’t in the mood for anything but pepperoni and mushrooms.
