So the theme of this week’s My Sexy Saturday blog hop is “My Sexy Best.” And I’ve got a little scene from book six of the Dream Series that shows us Sara knows that Brian is, without question, the best man for her. To set it up a bit, Sara is at her 10 year college reunion, and she’s talking to her friend Janet from medical school. It turns out that Janet, despite being 33 years old, is still a virgin, and she’s thinking that might change later in the evening. So she goes to the only person at the reunion she can trust with such a sensitive topic: Sara. And Sara shares her wisdom…
“Sara?” Her tone is almost pleading. “I – I know this is weird. But there’s nobody else I trust to talk to. And – I – I don’t know what to do.” She laughs suddenly, almost hysterically. “Of course I know what to do! I’m a doctor, it’s not like I don’t know how all the parts work! But…”
But knowing whether you want to or not – whether the time is right or not – is a whole different thing, and not something you can learn from a textbook. And neither is knowing how to properly make love to someone, how to please and be pleased. I’m no expert, though – what can I really tell her?
The truth. What else is there?
I was thinking about it earlier today, wasn’t I? “Janet, I was – this afternoon, we visited the old dorm. We were standing right outside my old room, room 208. And I thought back to the first time I brought Brian up there, the first time we…”
The first time Brian ever…
And, in a way, my first time, too. I’d had sex before. With boys. I hadn’t ever made love, or been with a real man, not until that first night with Brian. “Anyway, I was remembering. And – I knew, Janet. I knew it in my gut, when we were standing there in the hallway, and he was waiting for me to open the door. I knew it was right. The times I’d been with someone before that, the couple of boyfriends I had before Brian, I never had that feeling. Not once. There was no doubt with him, none at all.”
