“Honey! I’m home!” Cole shouted as he closed
the front door of his house. The sweet aroma of
freshly baked brownies entered his nostrils as he
sat his portfolio and laptop down on the couch.
He entered the empty kitchen and opened the
oven to salivate over the delicious dish.
“Honey! The brownies are done!” he shouted
He grabbed an oven mitten, pulled the pan of
brownies from the oven, and set them on the
kitchen counter. They smelled so delicious! He
could not wait. He cut a small piece from the
corner of the pan and took a bite.
“Ow! S–t! That’s hot!” Cole yelled. The brownie’s
heat did not stop him from finishing it.
“Honey? Where are you?” Cole shouted into the
house for the third time. It was not like her to not
greet him when he came home, let alone leave the
Cole walked to the staircase by the front door.
“Maria?” he called up the stairs. Cole only heard
the silence of a seemingly empty house. She
should be home. The car was in the driveway.
The silence was unnerving.
As Cole went up the stairs, an overpowering
sense of deja vu swept over him. It was as if he
had been here before. If only he could remember
how, or when… This strange feeling added to
Cole’s increasing paranoia. He knew in his gut
that something was horribly wrong.
“Maria?” Cole called out once again as he
reached the top of the stairs. Again, no answer.
He checked the bathroom; it was empty. Then he
poked his head into the guest bedroom; empty as
All that remained was the master bedroom. Cole
held his ear to the closed door; nothing. Was she
asleep? “No,” he thought. She would not have left
the oven on.
A voice in the back of his mind told him
something terrifying awaited him on the other
side. A cold chill ran all down his spine. He could
not shake the weird feeling that this happened
somewhere before. Cole summoned his courage,
turned the doorknob, and stepped inside.
Nothing could have prepared Cole for what he
saw as he flipped on the lights. He had finally
found Maria in bed… sitting serenely, smiling at
him. Cole released a deep sigh of relief as he
beheld her beauty, her bright blue eyes, and long
blonde hair that draped over the top of her white
“Hi Cole, I’ve been waiting all day for you to get
home,” Maria said with a suggestive smile.
Cole’s brain switched gears. The fear of
something terrible happening morphed into an
overwhelming sexual desire as he stared at her.
“I called for you, but you didn’t answer,” Cole
started. “You had me worried there for a second.”
“I wanted to surprise you. I wanted us to
celebrate having a baby. So, I made your favorite
“Well, call me surprised!” Cole said
Maria smiled bashfully. “But that isn’t the real
Cole looked at her curiously. “What is, then?”
Maria stood. She slid the nightgown off her
shoulders, letting it pile at her feet. Cole’s jaw
dropped and eyes widened when he saw his wife
wearing a white teddy that covered very little of
her body. The tight sheer fabric enhanced the
curves of her C-cup b—–s. Her excited n—–s
stuck out like two pink daggers under the see-
through the fabric. The garment also increased the
allure of her lovely p—y, barely visible through
the thin material. The white thigh high stockings
completed her sexy image by drawing attention to
her athletic legs, and to what lurked between
them. A cutout in the lingerie tauntingly displayed
her bare flat stomach and sparkling diamond
jewelry that dangled from her navel.
“Do you like what you see?” she asked as she
Cole smiled. “To say ‘yes’ would be an
understatement and wouldn’t do you justice.”
“Always the sweet talker,” Maria giggled.
