This blog is all about me and how my different beliefs and perspectives make me weird. At first, I had no intention of posting my stories to my blog, but now that seems to be the biggest reason people visit my blog, lol! So come read about me, and let me know what you think!

Shahi - Extra Story Arc
When this extra tidbit occurred to me the other night while I was watching couples dancing on youtube, I originally thought that it would be perfect for a short - one shot - story. Much like A Night with Jasmine. However, as I got to the end of the bit that I am posting today, I realized that I wasn't even halfway through what I planned to write. SO... I broke it down into two parts :-) ENJOY! Here's a Link to the original story if you want to read that :-D
anyone in there?” I whispered to my husband, too busy looking
behind us making sure no one was coming our way. Tab'sh'kr silently
looked into the oration room, taking his time to make sure it was
empty,” he stated with a grin as he opened the door all the way.
thought it might be,” I replied with a matching grin. We entered
the room and then shut the door behind us. “Almost no one comes
here at this time of night. Everyone is getting ready to go to bed.
Only those with a specific reason come to talk to the Gods now...”
us!” Tab'sh'kr added with a laugh.
giggled too because it was true that we weren't here to talk to the
Gods. We didn't need to come here if we wanted to talk to them
because at least one of the Gods was with me at all times. Now that
we had been married almost a whole year, even Tab'sh'kr was used to
listening in or speaking up during my divine chats. Though, he was
still amazed that the Gods had such a sense of humor! He'd been
raised to believed that they were proper and serious at all times.
held out his hand as he bowed slightly. “Would my beautiful wife
care to dance with me?”
is why I'm wearing this
dress!” I reminded him, though I knew he hadn't really forgotten.
We'd mutually decided to sneak into the oration room so that we'd
have the space to practice some of the Earth dances I'd taught him.
Our room served us well enough for light practice, but to really let
loose and dance like we wanted to, we needed to push back a couple of
benches and use the free area between the podium where the His
Holiness gave his orations, and the benches where the devout sat to
listen to him.
each hooked a small blue Earth device over our ears and then
activated them so that when I pushed the play button on the
accompanying MP3 player, we'd be able to hear the music playing, but
no one else would. I scrolled through the playlist until I found the
perfect song, and then set the player to play random songs when this
one was over.
Tango?” Tab'sh'kr asked, wondering if he had interpreted the song
correctly. I nodded with a smile, unconsciously smoothing out the
full-length white dress my mother had given me to wear after my
wedding. It looked a lot like my standard Mystic dress, but was
lighter and sleeveless. I wasn't technically allowed to wear it in
the Temple – I was supposed to wear the sacred symbol of my status
at all times – but I figured that if I can't wear what I want when
I am sneaking around at night, then when can I?
husband took me into his arms and twirled me around the floor
gracefully. Despite the fact that as a married couple we were
expected to remain in seclusion and try to conceive a child for the
first year after our marriage, I melted into him with a passion that
falsely implied it had been a while since we last shared a bed. I
doubt it had even been an hour.
love you,” I murmured honestly.
love you too,” Tab'sh'kr replied before he kissed me. Our dancing
changed just a bit to resemble the act of making love. I jumped up to
wrap my legs around his waist and he responded by twirling me as I
should have known!” My father grumbled. “Need I remind you that
you two are perilously close to desecrating the oration room?”
squeaked in surprise at the unexpected interruption, and then curled
back into my husband so that he could set me on my feet. I quickly
turned off the music. That was when I turned to face my father and
realized that he had my grandmother and a stranger with him.
sir,” Tab'sh'kr apologized out of long ingrained habit. He was not
only misbehaving with the man's daughter, but he was also highly
respectful of the Hero of Caladon. I rolled my eyes but otherwise
ignored him, though I did feel it was time he started acting like my
father was his father too because we're married now.
are you here?” I wondered. Had he or even my grandma wanted to talk
to me, they would have come to me in my apartment during the day, and
if there was a reason the Gods wanted me to speak to the unknown
woman, they would have told me so. Therefore, I had no idea what was
my love! It feels like I never see you these days!” My grandmother
lamented as she held her arms out and walked forward to hug me.
love you too, grams,” I purred, delighted to get a hug for no
reason at all.
year is almost up!” My grandmother stated as if this was a cause to
celebrate. I personally didn't think it was because then I would be
expected to go out and travel the world with my husband or maybe hold
audiences to bless people here in the temple almost every day.
still no indication that a child has been created?” My father half
asked, half stated grumpily.
growled softly. “No... the Gods still feel that the time just isn't
right for me to have babies.” Which was a lie. They didn't care
either way, it was the two of us who had decided to wait another year
or so before we had children.
Father stated as if he suspected that I was lying to him. “Anyway,
we came looking for you because of your cousin.” He gestured to the
young woman that I don't recall ever seeing before.
wants to ask for your help,” Grams informed me with a smile.
I murmured, trying to remember her. I do think I have a cousin by
that name, but I haven't heard anything about her in years.
responded by opening her traveling cloak to reveal a copper level
Mystic dress. “Yes,” she confirmed. “I pray that you can help
can try,” I stated with a shrug. The Gods hadn't said a word, so I
didn't know if they wanted me to help her, but judging by their
silence, probably not.
took a deep breath and held it for a moment before sighing. “You
see, I've been living on Mystic Island for the last 12 years. I left
here when I had just turned 7 because I was declared a copper mystic
and it was agreed that I should go commune with the Gods on Mystic
Island where there were plenty of other Mystics to help guide me and
teach me to see and hear the Gods better...”
fell silent for a moment as she looked to the floor. I think she was
ashamed, but I had no idea why. Until I realized that she still wore
the copper dress, which meant that she hadn't made much progress in
the last 12 years.
what is it you think I can do?” I asked hesitantly.
that the pecking order among Mystics was pretty strict – especially
on the Island – I was surprised that she dared to look me in the
eye, but she did. I could see the determination in her as if it was
written on her face. For a moment, I thought she was going to call me
an idiot or something, but she didn't.
reached us a while ago that you were able to take someone away with
you and train him to be a gold level Mystic. I want you to do that
for me,” she stated in all seriousness.
I denied her flatly, crossing my arms in front of my chest.
not?!” She demanded angrily. “I have done everything I can to
connect with the Gods and it hasn't helped! My only hope lies with
shook my head. “No, I can't.”
not?” She asked again, almost
daring to grab me by my arms.
my father – the Hero of Caladon – would probably kill me, for
one, and for two, if I agreed to do this for you, it would only be a
matter of time before all
the Mystics asked me to do it for them, and then I know
my father would kill me! Besides, you have no idea what you are
asking for. My answer is no, and that's final.” I tried not to
smile as I noticed my father nod his head in agreement out of the
corner of my eye.
doesn't explain anything!”
Shayla protested. “And what about the Gods? Don't they want
me to be a better Mystic?!”
turned to look at the three Gods that were currently watching this
drama unfold. I noticed that Tab'sh'kr was looking at them too.
Neither of us was wearing what we were supposed to be, or else Shayla
would have noticed right away that he was the newly trained gold
level Mystic she was just talking about. Meanwhile, Shayla was
squinting in their general direction as if she was aware they were
there, but couldn't really see them.
a copper level Mystic, she saw them as balls of light and couldn't
hear them at all, so it made sense to me that she couldn't quite be
sure if they were really there or not.
send her away!” The Goddess of Love stated like a snob.
can't let go of her pride long enough to properly serve us,” the
God of Poetry added, also a bit snidely, as if he found her tedious
focused on the God of the Sky, who was more or less the King of the
Gods – in a sort of unofficial but well respected manner. “I
think that if she is truly serious about her intentions, then you
should explain to her exactly
what she'll have to do, and then test her resolve and determination.”
joking!” Tab'sh'kr blurted out incredulously. I'll admit my mouth
was hanging open in shock as well.
What did they say?!” Shayla demanded impatiently. I held up a
finger in a gesture asking her to wait until the Sky God was
do not get your hopes up. This young woman has spent her whole life
working to control the gifts we gave her, and frankly, that's the
problem. She has too much control! She cannot let go and open up to
us the way we hoped she would. You could try
training her, but the best she can probably hope for is silver
status... weak silver status at that.”
sighed in defeat and turned to face Shayla. “The Gods say that they
don't particularly care if I train you or not. They leave the
decision up to you, however... They want me to thoroughly explain the
situation to you and test your resolve before you decide.”
father half sighed, half growled at that. He still hated
the idea that I might allow my mixed heritage to corrupt the purity
of our people. “I advise against this! Shayla, the only training
that she can offer you... You don't understand! It's far more likely
to corrupt your soul than it is to connect you with the Gods!”
cast him a look of utter confusion. I laughed a deep and throaty
laugh that sounded just a tiny bit evil. Even my husband chuckled at
my father's statement.
I purred impishly. “It's a well kept secret that I am not just
the Highest Mystic, but also the most depraved person on the planet!”
gasped in disbelief, certain that I was simply trying to play a trick
on her. “Never! I will never believe that there is any
darkness in our Highest Mystic! If there was, the Gods would deem you
unworthy of their favor!”
bet?” Sky God muttered after snorting a laugh.
it does not matter!” Shayla insisted. “There is nothing
you can say or do that will make me change my mind! I want you to
train me to serve the Gods the way you trained that other one!”
Did the rumor not mention that the one I trained was now my
husband??? I looked to Tab'sh'kr, then to my grandma – who was
watching us with a sparkle in her eye that let me know she knew
exactly how funny the situation was – and then finally, my gaze
landed on my father. He was scowling at me in a way that let me know
that he knew that Shayla was most likely about to visit Hedonia with
me. He was clearly not happy about it, but he had made his peace with
my differences and so made an effort to be supportive. A small smile
stretched his lips as if he was mentally telling me to have fun and
not be too shocking to
my fellow Mystic.
smiled at him in return.
just test her already and be done with it!” The God of Poetry
snapped impatiently. I understood that he – and all the rest of
them – were disappointed by her lack of ability to use the gifts
they had given her.
a small chuckle, I braced myself to be ruthless. If she was going to
do this, she was going to have a thorough understanding of what she
was asking for. Stepping closer to her, I probed her eyes with mine,
looking for even the slightest hesitation. I found nothing but steely
determination and an iron will. I could see why the Gods said she had
too much control.
I grabbed her face and kissed her, sliding my tongue into her mouth.
She was so utterly shocked that she opened her mouth to gasp in
surprised, which simply gave me better access. Sounds of protest
emerged from her throat for a moment before she gathered her wits and
pushed me away.

and you dare to mock me! The Gods abhor such lewd behavior!”

Shayla insisted emphatically.
Gods are right,” Tab'sh'kr muttered unappreciatively. “She really
isn't worth the effort.”

over her shoulder to emphasize her point.
stubbornness,” the God of the Sky added, biting his lip in concern.
He obviously hoped that she could learn to be useful one day.
I commanded the Gods emphatically. “Shame on you! She is only
trying to serve you, and you're talking about her as if she was a

overcome her faults.”
Sky said that she has the potential to become a silver Mystic,” I
argued, pointing to the God in reference.
also said that she would probably not be able to overcome her faults
long enough to be a silver! It's far too much effort to put into
someone who is not likely to improve,” Tab'sh'kr pointed out. “I
think you were right to begin with. Tell her no and send her back to

wishes to better themselves, all effort is worth it, no matter how
small the achievement.”

Sky is practically the King of the Gods, and if he doesn't think it's
worth it, who am I to
unofficial Queen of the Gods – who wasn't
married to the Sky God – spoke up just then, alerting us to the
fact that she had joined us. “Your grandmother is right. Just
because Sky says something, that doesn't mean you should listen to

Sky God protested. “I resent that! I think I do a pretty good job
at that wisdom thing.”
rolled her eyes but otherwise ignored him. “However,
I will admit that he was right when he said to explain things to
young Shayla and then test her resolve. The only one who can make
this decision is her.”
I growled in frustration. “I understand; so can you all just shut
up and leave us alone so I can do this already?!”
Goddess laughed. “No problem. I just thought I should let you know
that a first time mother has just gone into labor and because it's
happening so suddenly, she has no one with her.”

the Goddess of Healing came to get me if I was needed to help with a
birth or an injury.
not as far as I can tell. She's just frightened and alone.”
I inquired. Once she'd given me directions, I turned to my
grandmother. “There's a pregnant woman who needs someone to help
her not be scared. She's all alone and just gone into labor.” I
gave her directions to the poor woman.

is as easy as can be,” Grams promised.
smiled at her gratefully for understanding that this was one of those
times where I wasn't needed and had other things to occupy my
attention. I glanced at Shayla, who was goggling at me incredulously,
probably astonished that I dared to talk to the Gods the way I did.
My father gave her a look of deep contemplation, and then pulled me
into a hug so that he could kiss my cheek.

boats,” he informed me.

pulled me into another hug. “Just in case you decide to leave the
planet, this is His Holiness' – my brother's – granddaughter. He
and her parents trust your judgment and have give their permission
for her to go wherever you deem necessary.”
suppressed the urge to roll my eyes. By her own words, she was at
least 19 and didn't need permission to do anything, but this was
Caladon after all. Until she got married and had a husband to protect
her, she was under the protection of her father. I nodded in
understanding and then watched my father and grandmother leave the

alone with just my husband and me.
So... what did the Gods decide?” She wondered, her expression
carefully smooth to hide how hurt she must feel at hearing the Gods
think that she wasn't worth the effort of training.
fiddled with my MP3 player to turn it back on but then turned the
volume down so that it was just a whisper in the back of our heads. I
held my arms out to Tab'sh'kr in an invitation to dance, smiling that
a sultry salsa song started to play – not that Shayla could hear
want me to explain to you in great detail just how depraved
my special training is,” I informed her without even looking at
her. Tab'sh'kr pulled me close and I put my leg around his in a way
that pushed my long skirt up to expose my skin. We ground our hips
together suggestively for a moment before he spun me away. After
that, our feet moved pretty quickly as we danced, my hips shaking and
made a sound that clearly told us she was shocked and scandalized by
our behavior. “Ah! Then stop doing that... naughty thing your doing
and explain things to me!” She insisted.

There will be an abundance of kisses and long sensual touches...”
caught me and lifted me onto his hips so that I could bend over
backwards as I ground my genitals into his.

shirt over his head. He jostled me a bit to accommodate my removal of
his Earth-style tee shirt.
husband set me back on my feet so that he could run his hands up
inside my skirt to caress my bare buttocks. I hadn't thought I'd need
anything under my dress, hee hee! He pressed a kiss to the spot
between my collarbone and cleavage.

had her arms crossed as she watched us, her face thoroughly red from
embarrassment even though her expression was impatient. “You're
just trying to scare me! There's no way the Gods would tolerate the
type of training you're talking about!”
someone who can't hear the Gods speak, you sure seem to know a lot
about what they think!” I muttered darkly, a bit annoyed. I shut
the music off and walked to her, nearly stomping my bare feet. “You
came to me to ask for my help and I'm telling you what you have to
do, so stop thinking you know everything and listen!”
made a sound of protest, but otherwise held her tongue. I stroked her
cheek with my hand, and then brushed my cheek along hers. She inhaled
in shock, but didn't try to stop me or push me away.
not trying to scare you,” I purred in her ear. “I'm trying to do
what you asked me to. The reason my husband is now able to see and
hear the Gods when he never could before is because I brought him to
a different world.”
lips pressed tiny kisses to her cheek and neck as I spoke.
on Caladon, the Gods believe in letting the people worship them in
any way they choose. They mostly keep to themselves and let the
people have the freedom to do whatever they want. As a result, the
people have built up
an elaborate set of rules we must all obey to “prove”
our devotion to the Gods. Everything you think you know about the
Gods... It's nothing more than dogma created by our ancestors. It
serves it's purpose and keeps us wholesome and pure...”
around behind her, I pulled her back into my body, stroking her
breasts and abdomen. She gasped in dismay, her breath catching in her
throat and making it hard for her to breathe. I smirked at the way
her body trembled from her apprehension.
training you are asking for will take place on a completely different
planet. There on Hedonia, the Gods take a different approach to their
relationship with the people. They make a pact with them. In exchange
for the people's devout worship of the Gods, the Gods favor and
protect them; generally making life pleasant all around. That pact is
symbolized by sex...”
hands stroked her femininity through her thick skirt. I licked the
back of her neck before finishing my explanation. “That's
the training you are asking for...”
gulped several times in an attempt to control what must be panic
rising to overwhelm her. “No... I I I I c-c-c-couldn't. I Couldn't!
My body is a gift meant only
for my future husband!”
a Mystic who lived on Mystic Island, she was allowed to remain
unmarried her whole life if she wanted. A lot of times, the higher
Mystics on the Island would suggest marriages between the Mystics on
the Island in order to increase the chances of having babies blessed
by the Gods. I'm surprised that she hadn't agreed to a marriage as
soon as she turned 18.
Tab'sh'kr asked pointedly. “She doesn't have what it takes.”
most certainly do not!” Shayla stated, clearly offended by his
statement. “I don't know why you two are tormenting me when all I
asked for is help in communicating with the Gods! Is that really so
much to ask?! Why must you be so cruel to me?!?!”
not being cruel,” I whispered as I turned her around to face me.
“I'm telling you honestly what you'd have to do.” Her expression
as she valiantly gained control of her emotions was adorable to me,
which made her irresistible. I kissed her – probably the second
kiss she'd ever had in her life – but unlike the first time, this
kiss was soft and tender.
moaned and seemed to relax for just one moment before her self
control reasserted itself and she pushed me away. “How can I trust
anything you say when all you have done so far is kiss me and touch
me inappropriately and try to knock me off the righteous path of the
her face so that we were nearly nose to nose and eye to eye, I
maintained a steady and intense gaze until I could see that she
understood how serious I was. “You are asking me to help you
connect with the Gods because I am their chosen representation and
you know in your heart that I can help you. Why would I lie about
something like this? What purpose would it serve?”
said it yourself, the Gods want you to test my resolve. I'm certain
that you are trying to shake my faith to see if I will succumb to
weakness so easily. It doesn't matter, because I will prove to you
that my faith is strong. You can keep testing me like this all night,
but I won't waver!” Shayla stated emphatically.
I said, dropping all the frills and speaking to her as plainly as
possible. “The training you are asking for involves sex. I am not
lying about that or using it as a way to test your resolve... not yet
anyway. Think about it; the moment you said you wanted training, my
father recommended against it because he thinks you will be corrupted
by it. He knows what
I'm talking about and he doesn't like the thought of any
Caladonians receiving this sort of training. It goes against
everything we believe in and he's afraid that if more people have
this training, we will no longer be good.”
if you're serious...” Shayla faltered.
I seemed to be getting through to her! “As I said, the Gods are
leaving the decision up to you. If you are determined enough to do
exactly as I tell you to, they think that you will learn how to hear
them, but even then... Well, ask your grandfather. He's a silver
level Mystic and only sees and hears them on occasion. Do you really
want to put yourself through all this trouble just to be able to hear
them from time to time?”
decided that it was time to add his two cents. “Take the time to
think this over carefully. Sure, I am now considered a Gold level
Mystic with the power to see and hear the Gods, but they can just
barely channel their power through me. I cannot do any of the things
that Shahi can, and as a result, they often ignore me. Why would you
literally turn your back on centuries of tradition for the slim
chance that you might be able to hear them?”
looked at the floor for a moment as she thought this over, but then
she looked up at Tab'sh'kr, her eyes on fire with determination once
more. “The only
thing I have ever wanted to do with my life is serve the Gods! It is
my dream that I can be a Mystic like my grandfather; in charge of a
temple that helps the people. I want to be able to hear the Gods so
that I may know their wisdom as I deliver sermons encouraging people
to be devout and always help those in need. When people need the
advice of the Gods, I want to be able to give it to them!”
took a step closer to my husband, almost angry at him now. “So if
what you say is true and I have even the smallest chance at being
able to hear them, then I will take it! I will walk through fire and
do whatever it takes to fulfill my dreams! If that means that I will
have to serve the Highest Mystic in a carnal capacity, then so be
misunderstand,” I informed her gently. “You will not be serving
me... at least not
most of the time. You'll be serving as many people as it takes to
accomplish the goal you have set.”
paled until I thought she might faint. “But... but... I thought...
but... my future husband! I'm supposed to save myself for him! How
can this be what the Gods want from me?”
yourself to the Goddess of Love and serving in one of her houses is
every bit as sacred as leading a temple is. Why do people have a hard
time understanding this?” I wondered with a frown. There is no
shame in going to a house of love, and there is no shame is serving
in one either, but whenever I mention serving the Gods by having sex,
it never fails that people are shocked and horrified by the idea. I
seriously have to wonder why, because our people are taught from a
young age that sex is sacred, so what's wrong with the idea of
serving the Gods in that manner?
must have something to do with our belief that a person should be
faithful to their spouse forever. Even after one spouse dies, the
other one is supposed to honor them and never take another lover.
Maybe it's not the idea of sex that horrifies them, maybe it's the
idea of giving that precious gift to someone other than the mate
chosen for them. This made a little sense, but was still confusing to
me in the fact that if a person was asked to serve the Gods and they
truly wanted to, why would they hesitate just because the method of
servitude was sex? Serving the Gods is serving the Gods, right?
was one aspect in which I thought Hedonia had a better system. They
all worship their Gods
by having sex. It's the way they're taught to commune with their
Gods, and it's so very beautiful and sacred and divine. Maybe if
Caladon had schools to offer training to young adults so that they
knew to embrace sex rather than fear it, maybe then people would stop
shuddering when I suggest that sex can
be the way they serve the Gods.
shook my head and shrugged. “No matter... It's time to decide. Are
you going to leave now and let my husband and I finish our dancing,
or are you going to come with me so that I can test your resolve?”
I thought this was the
test of my resolve!” Shayla protested in confusion. I simply and
slowly shook my head back and forth.
took several deep breaths before saying anything. “Well... What is
pulled her close and started stoking her cheek again. “I've already
told you.” One of my hands held her steady while I claimed her lips
in a greedy kiss, and my other hand fondled her breast for a moment
before trailing down her dress to stroke the small valley between her
whimpered, her breathing ragged. I could feel her body quake with
fear, but it wasn't fear of what I was doing – she seemed almost
curious about that. No... it was fear of the unknown, and a little
bit of uncertainty that this was the right course of action.
she pushed me away. “Will you swear to me that this is not some
huge joke or an attempt to lead me astray?”
swear,” I responded sincerely.
Then I'll do it. I do whatever it takes! Go ahead and test me as much
as you want, because I won't give up,” Shayla vowed. The problem is
that this is exactly
the problem! She's so very determined to do whatever it takes to be
in control at all times that she simply cannot relax and let go. No
wonder the Gods thought she was too difficult to be worth the effort.
then come with us,” I ordered, beckoning to Tab'sh'kr over my
shoulder. “It's time we returned to our apartment.”
inhaled in surprise for a moment, but then nodded. As an unmarried
woman, she really wasn't allowed to go anywhere but the oration room
and the women's side of the temple. If she dared to step on foot into
the men's side, she could be punished for the possible temptation of
the men who resided there. If she wandered into the area reserved for
married couples without a man to protect her, she could be branded a
bad girl. After all, if she wanted to meet with someone, that's what
the normally well supervised oration room was for. There was no need
to seek out privacy unless there was something naughty going on!
for her that I – as the Highest Mystic – could bring an entire
team of males into my apartment if I wanted and simply say that it
was the Gods' will. No one would question me, and so, as long as she
was with me, she could go wherever I wanted her to.
were all silent as we walked. Tab'sh'kr held my hand, frequently
bringing it to his lips for a light kiss. I smiled at him and he
grinned at me, both of us giggled so softly that it was barely a
whisper floating in the air. I knew that my husband was looking
forward to watching me test Shayla... all night long if I had to!
moment I stopped to open our apartment door, I felt Shayla freeze up.
She tensed every muscle in her body, forming tight fists with her
hands. I heard her mutter: “She swore to me; I have to believe
a deeply fortifying breath, she stepped into my apartment. Tab'sh'kr
and I followed her, closing the door behind us. Tab'sh'kr tossed his
shirt that he hadn't bothered to put back on onto the nearest chair,
and then abruptly stripped until he was naked.
eyes bulged as she watched him. I let her and then used a hand to
firmly return her attention to me. “Don't pay any attention to him.
Forget he is even here. Tonight... I
am going to give you your very first lesson, and if – after I am
done – you still
want to do this, then tomorrow, we'll all leave Caladon so that your
training can truly begin.”
took a few breaths to calm herself, and then slowly nodded. “Wh-what
do I have to do?”
only thing you need to do is relax – if you can,” I informed her
with a smirk. She trembled but nodded in understanding.
I tugged the long draping portion of her dress off her shoulder. It
dangled to the floor as I lifted her fully covering white and copper
shirt over her head. Women on Caladon didn't wear bras or anything to
confine the breasts – unless they needed a basic cloth wrap for
support – so without her shirt, Shayla had nothing to hide her
breasts from my greedy eyes. I massaged them for a few moments,
circling my hands round and round.
her steady, I traced paths along her collar bone and breasts with
kisses. She whimpered a couple of times, but held her hands firmly at
her sides so that she wouldn't push me away. Looking up into her
eyes, I circled one of her nipples with my tongue a couple of times
before slowly wrapping my mouth around it. She gasped in
astonishment, her eyes both astonished and
curious to know what I planned to do next.
between sucking on her nipples, I massaged her shoulders, abdomen,
and arms. Then I turned her around and massaged her back with both my
hands and my tongue.
She squirmed ever so delightfully when I kissed and nipped at her
neck. A couple of soft moans let me know that she was definitely
enjoying my touch now!
was my cue to finish unwrapping her skirt. The portion that rested
over her shoulder and the skirt together was one long piece of white
cloth embroidered with sacred patterns and edged in copper. It was
wrapped around her several times to preserve her modesty and form an
ultra feminine rippling drape to the sides of the skirt. I personally
loved to dance in mine
just so I could watch it twirl and sway!
inhaled a gasp when she realized that I had stripped her utterly
naked in front of my husband, who was grinning at her like a wolf. An
aroused wolf... He
stroked his long shaft slowly as he sat in a chair watching us.
standing behind her, I dropped to my knees so that I could massage
her buttocks and the back of her legs. In doing so, I forced her to
step her legs apart so that I could slide my hands up and down her
legs as needed. It was also fun to lick or bite her anywhere I so
desired, each time making her gasp softly. Her arms waved around a
bit as if she couldn't quite decide whether to cover her breasts, her
womanhood, or simply leave them at her sides.
my hands arrived at her feet, I shifted around to her front, kissed
them each once, and then massaged my way back up her legs, forcing
her to spread her legs just a bit wider. My tongue licked the inside
of her thighs several times, making her wobble and then clutch my
head and shoulder to steady herself.
than just diving right into her divine femininity, I decided to give
her a small break so that she had a moment to process everything that
had happened so far. I knew there was nothing that could ever prepare
her for what would happen next, but at least she would be as
comfortable as possible. Holding her hand, I led her to my bed, and
then gently pushed her until she sat on the edge. Next, I spread her
legs wide and inhaled her all natural aroma.
Tab'sh'kr!” I exclaimed in wonder, beckoning my husband to come
closer. “Now I think I understand why the teachers take so much
pride in their jobs! Just look at that! Isn't it beautiful?!”
whimpered once more as Tab'Sh'kr knelt next to me so that he could
get a good look at the beauty of an untouched virgin. She was only a
year younger than me, but already, it was hard to imagine a time when
I did not know the joy of sex. All those years of yearning for
something but not really knowing what...
is was the part of me
that comes from my mother that needed sex long before I ever knew
what that meant, but maybe it wasn't. Considering that this girl had
prepared herself to live a long and celibate life dedicated to the
Gods, but was now thoroughly aroused and fairly curious about what I
planned to do next, I'm almost willing to bet that it is something
universal to all life.
If that's so, then I might just want to explore this concept more
wore a wary expression as she regarded Tab'sh'kr. The fact that he
made no attempt to touch her seemed to set her mind at ease, but she
looked like she was certain that he – being a male and therefore
the gender she'd been taught her whole life not to tempt – was just
waiting for the right moment to pounce on her. I smirked at the
thought of telling him to take her virginity and love her so
thoroughly that she couldn't walk tomorrow, but that's not what I
intended for this test.
that didn't mean that he couldn't help!
honey? Could you sit behind her and massage her for me?” I asked,
my voice husky with desire.
nodded and climbed onto the bed. I watched him settle behind her, and
then pull her into him. This forced her to recline a bit and gave me
better access to her. She gasped at his touch, then nearly choked as
she inhaled so hard that I thought she might pass out. Tab'sh'kr's
hands did exactly what I wanted them to, rubbing her breasts and
pinching her nipples.
she was preoccupied trying to decide how to deal with that – a man
she wasn't married to touching her so intimately – I was slowly
tracing the outline of her womanly lips with a finger. My other hand
pushed her legs open a bit wider so that I could spread her lips with
my fingers and slide my tongue inside her.
She gasped in astonishment and alarm. “The Gods seriously want you
to do this to me?!?!”

had been slowly licking her while my husband spoke, but I paused to
look up at her. “It's not that the Gods want me to do this
to you, it's that this
is the test I must give you because this
is the training you asked for. If you can't handle it, you can ask us
to stop at any time and we will. Then you can go back to Mystic
Island and life will return to normal for you.”
stared at me in indecision for a moment. Her eyes watered as she
carefully thought over each possibility. Tab'sh'kr continued to
stroke her breasts, and I stuck my tongue inside her once more. As my
tongue wiggled around her sensitive opening, I lightly rubbed her
clitoris with the pad of my thumb.

want to be loyal to
the Gods and do whatever they ask of me, but... but... This feels so
good! You keep saying that this is my test, but I think I'm supposed
to stand firm to my beliefs. I think I am supposed to resist you, but
I don't want to! I don't know how this can help me get closer to the
Gods, but you promised that it will...” She heaved a great sigh,
exhaling all the air from her body, and then took a deep breath.
this is what I must do to prove that I have what it takes to serve
the Gods, then so be it!” She exclaimed, and then closed her eyes
and relaxed against my husband's body. Well, as much as she could

I worshiped her divinity with my finger and my tongue for half the
night, taking the time to build up her first orgasm slowly. I didn't
want to overwhelm her! Between the two of us sensually stimulating
her erogenous zones, we eventually had her screaming.

plenty of previous experience that our neighbors couldn't hear us...
Unless they simply and purposely didn't mention it, because we make
enough noise to wake the dead on nearly a nightly basis!
gesture had Tab'sh'kr shift her onto her back as I tossed my dress to
the floor. Once I was completely naked, I climbed on top of her.
Pressing my groin to her groin and my breasts to hers, I kissed her
lips. She licked my lips curiously, understanding that she was
tasting herself on me.
was technically only half
of the first lesson. You are supposed to prove that you were paying
attention, but I think this is enough for now. Tell me, what did you
think of the lesson?” I wondered, pressing kisses to her chin and
neck as I waited for her to answer.
She hummed as she thought. “I... I think that was the most
unexpectedly wonderful thing that has ever happened to me! But it was
terrifying at the same time. I thought my heart was going to explode
and send me straight to the Gods!”
hummed a laugh as I continued to kiss her neck and shoulder. My hands
stroked her sides, and my hips ground into hers. “So... Now that
you have passed the test, you have a choice to make. Will you come
with us and submit your body to the frequent touch of others? Will
you dedicate yourself to learning how to give such pleasure?”
now that I know what this special training is, I haven't changed my
mind,” Shayla stated firmly, her body quivering lightly in response
to my touch. “I'll do whatever I have to in order to be closer to

Tab'sh'kr and I laughed. “Probably not!”
on Caladon, we are taught that sex is sacred and our duty to perform
so that we may have children. We are told what it is and how it
happens, but we definitely aren't
taught all the finer points of eroticism and foreplay. More than
likely, most sex on Caladon is done quickly and straight to the
point. I really don't think they would know how to do it any other
way unless an older adult with far more practice gave them a bit of
advice, but even then, I'm sure it's nothing like we are taught to do
