Early morning thoughts
She’d been so entranced by the early morning sunrise she hadn’t heard the door open behind her. She stood very still as she sensed the footsteps getting closer.
‘You’re up early’, he said.
‘Mmmm, I woke and couldn’t drop off again, got up and made myself a cup of tea. Saw this wonderful mix of colours out here so left the warmth of the kitchen to come outside for a better look’
‘And what’s on the agenda for today?’ he asked as he turned to go back inside.
Patsy was caught unawares by that one. ‘Maybe a bit of shopping, possibly call in at the Animal Shelter with those old towels, I might even go to the gym. I’ll just play it by ear as the day goes by’
There was no way she was going to tell him exactly what she had planned for her day. It was going to be a mixture of pain and pleasure which she was sure he wouldn’t understand.
She stood there a while longer then suddenly felt the chilly early morning air seeping into her bones
Upermost in her mind was their upcoming trip to Rome. She was so looking forward to feeling the warmth of the European summer sun which meant it was time to get her legs waxed.
‘Now what shall I have for breakfast, she muttered to herself, oh, and what time was that appointment?’

Certainly piqued my curiosity!
Wasn’t sure where I was going with it Diane. Waxing her legs seemed just like the right sort of pain and pleasure activity 😊
Loving your use of Vest’s prompts and that beautiful illustrative photo.
The timing was just right wasn’t it EC.😊
Good one, Cathy. I was expecting something more sinister than waxing, though! lol
Having never waxed….other than waxed on lyrically…perhaps it is sinister! 🙂
Once waxed never forgotten Lee lol.
Not sinister but a certain mix of pain plus the pleasure when it’s all done 😊
Thanks Jean. Maybe you could join in and have a go one week
