I’m expecting another late night with Elise but we haven’t worked anything out yet, so I’ve already messaged Mel to tell her that I won’t make the park run tomorrow. She told me to have fun with Elise, and again I wondered if the two of them were plotting behind my back. Maybe Elise isn’t interested in me after all but is just doing things for Mel?
“They had photos of me, and I had photos of their reactions for my exhibition. It was a win-win.”
I had a nice evening out with Ha, just chatting and gossiping and eating and drinking (a little). I told her more about how I didn’t really know what I was into, but I was getting on with Elise so I should just see what happened. She said she was so happy to see me finally turn to “the other side”, and I had to laugh and say not so fast, because I still fancied Mark, and she said “nobody’s perfect”. But I had to admit I also fancy Ana. So that makes three people, and only one of them’s a man.
She told me about how since the naked bike ride Lily had been making Ha spend more time naked. I said I’m sure she couldn’t make you do anything you didn’t want to do, and Ha said there is that, and Lily does make it worth her while. I asked where they went and she said it was only at home, and she jumped every time the doorbell went. I said maybe I’ll turn up randomly and surprise them and Ha said she thought she’d die of embarrassment if I turned up clothed and she was naked, and I said in that case I definitely wanted to do it. I wonder if Lily would be up for that?
“I can’t decide whether to spank you now or leave you here for later.”
I felt like some kind of high-powered executive today, with a suit to work for meetings and then changing into exercise gear for my Pilates class. Things are on the up at last!
All of a sudden I have a busy week lined up!
Thursday: Ha said we should “do something”
Friday: Elise has told me to keep the evening free.
Saturday: Alison has set up the second tea session with me, Ellie, Ana and Sarah, and of course Russ is serving us ladies.
Sunday: going to have brunch with Mark and Ana and talk about holiday plans!
“I had a friend’s son house-sit for me. Things got interesting when I came home early.”
Work was better today now things are a bit more out in the open with Tim, and I was in a better mood when I headed to Mel’s. Which meant I was somewhat complacent and stuffed my dress into the mailbox, called the elevator, got in and… some other random woman came and pressed the call button before the doors closed and they opened again. She was more surprised at finding a naked woman in the lift than I was at being there. I did say to her it was fine and I was just going up to the seventh floor, but she said she’d wait for the next one.
I was smiling about that when I knocked on Mel’s door and she asked me why I was in such a good mood. So the coaching session started before I had even taken my shoes off, and I told her about the night with Elise, how I thought things were okay with Tim, and how Linda and Gary were… odd.
Then I told her all about work, and the press release, and we focussed on work stuff for about an hour. I have a big task list now. It’s all self-imposed but there’s so much reading to do and she said I should follow up on every opportunity even if it meant working twelve hours a day for the next few months, because future me would be grateful for it. She’s probably right.
At the end of the session we even shared a glass of wine looking out from her half-balcony as I let the evening sun wash over my body. Sometimes being nude is great.
“I always have my photo taken outside, just to set the scene before we see what reaction I get inside.”
