Mark’s hands wandered to her breasts and toyed with her nipples in a lazy manner.
“Did you enjoy that?” He asked her with a satisfied grin, knowing full well she had. She rested her head into the crook of his neck and said,
“Couldn’t you tell?”
“I’m surprised you didn’t wake the baby!” He teased her.
“I couldn’t help it. That was so intense.”
He kissed her neck and agreed with her.
“I know.” Mark gave a pleasurable sigh before adding,
“I don’t think I would ever grow bored of you. You challenge me in so many ways.” Siri stiffened slightly in his arms but said nothing.
“Oh oh. What have I said?”
“Nothing.” She said firmly and attempted to stand up and move away from him.
Mark allowed her the freedom to move but followed her to arise himself and stand next to her.
“Come on, let’s have it.” He whispered his breath hot against her neck, close to her earlobe. She shook her head and kept her eyes averted away from his.
“I must have said something to upset you?” He said calmly allowing his breath to blow hot air onto her bare skin. She shivered in response.
“Tell me.” He pleaded with her. Turning her body so that she stood in front of him, she threw her arms around his neck and burrowed her head into his shoulder.
“Oh dear, I have made you feel insecure, haven’t I?” He teased her as he stroked her back. She nodded against his chest, feeling her cheeks growing hot with embarrassment; she couldn’t bring herself to look at him.
“What did I say honey?” He asked her walking his fingers up and down her spine.
“I can’t bare the thought of you going off with someone else.” She mumbled so low that he could barely catch the words.
“Sh. We’ve had this conversation before, haven’t we?” She nodded against him.
“But you said…”
“Sh. I didn’t say I was going to leave you or anything of the sort, did I?” He cut her off. Before she could respond to him, he went on.
“What I said was quite the opposite in fact! I said I wouldn’t get bored with you.”
“But you said I was challenging, as if it was wrong of me to be like that!” His knuckles reached up and brushed the side of her face before he answered her.
“What I meant was that you keep me on my toes both in and out of bed!” He laughed. “Anyway I’ve told you before you’re a challenging character.” She nodded remembering back.
“What I meant today is how responsive you are to any new sexual suggestion that I make. You’re always so passionate. You don’t realise what a gift that is.”
“By that you mean your ex-wife hated sex!” She threw at him defensively pulling back out of his arms. He let her go and watched her as she braced herself against the work surface, her knuckles showing white as she clenched the kitchen sink behind her.
“No that isn’t what I meant at all! Jesus! You’re so difficult sometimes, everything I say you take the wrong way!”
“So she was good in bed then?”
“Siri I’m not even going down that road so didn’t even try and go there!” He warned her threateningly.
“That means she was.” Siri muttered to herself.
“Of she would be. Why wouldn’t she be? She was a model wasn’t she? I bet she had loads of men around her, not like me cooped up in an all girl’s school, not knowing any men except my Dad and my brothers. Stupid naïve little Siri!” She taunted herself in a mimicking voice.
“Siri stop it now! I am not going to get involved in this argument. We’re just going to end up going around in circles. We’ve already had this conversation before. You take everything I say the opposite way to what I actually mean! I’m not going to keep explaining myself to you every five minutes because you don’t listen in the first place!”
“I do listen!” Siri shouted at him.
“Is that why you had such a wonderful relationship with your Dad then? Because you always listened to everything he said? Hm? Is that what this afternoon was all about?” He asked her sarcastically.
“Fuck off Mark!” She cursed at him in temper.
“Oh getting too near the truth now, are we?”
“I hate you!”
“Really?” He raised one eyebrow at her in disbelief.
“Then why did you just let me make love to you on the kitchen floor?”
“I didn’t! I…” Mark squawked with laughter interrupting whatever Siri had intended to say.
