To that small group of disturbed people who have enjoyed my previous efforts and encouraged me, thank you.
It was another very quiet ride home from work. My wife and I worked in the same building on the Air Force Base and we rode back and forth to work together every day. For the last few days we had hardly spoken. We weren't mad at each other. We were scared.
We both worked with highly classified documents in different but related fields. We had both been working in the same building since we graduated from college. For me that was three years ago, for Sharon it was two. Not long after Sharon started working there a mutual friend thought that we would make the perfect couple and she introduced us. She had been right. We hit it off immediately. We had nearly everything in common.
We were both young and I am embarrassed to admit that we were both very naïve. We were inexperienced when it came to the opposite sex. We were quiet and shy and much preferred getting comfortable with a good book to a night out on the town. We had the same taste in music and liked the same foods and voted for the same political candidates for the same reasons.
We also shared the same distaste for religion. Don't misunderstand. We are both moral, honorable, honest people. We had both come to believe as we were growing up that a lot of what was wrong in the world could be laid directly at the door of religion and we saw it more as a force for bad in the world than for good. I realize that puts us in a minority of the world's population but I'm just trying to be honest here.
We knew right away that we were perfect for each other and we hadn't been dating six months before we had gotten engaged. Our original plan was to get married in six months, after knowing each other for a year. We didn't last. We were too much in love and we both knew that we had found our ideal mate.
So after three months we had a quiet wedding in her parent's backyard. Her parents were very successful and lived in a nice house outside of town. The ceremony was performed by a justice of the peace and the guest list was kept down to twenty-eight friends and relatives, though not without some difficulty.
We had not moved in together before we married, but we had become intimate after almost two months. Neither of us had been virgins, but neither were we very experienced. We had a lot to learn about sex but we were taking it slow and enjoying the journey. When we first had oral sex it was the first time for both of us.
We tried to approach the subject of sex like we would anything else. We read about it and experimented and we were quickly learning what we liked and what we didn't like. We weren't all that adventurous though. We enjoyed a lot of touching and we liked oral sex. I enjoyed it more than Sharon did, but she seemed to be getting more comfortable with it.
Neither of us was interested in anal sex or any of that kinky stuff like bondage or anything like that. For the most part, when we had sex there was a lot of touching and kissing and then we made love in the missionary position. I am embarrassed to admit that I often reach orgasm long before Sharon does.
But I am getting better about that and I always try to make sure that she has an orgasm after I do. She often insists that she enjoys it and it isn't necessary but I think it's only fair. It isn't that I am a premature ejaculator.
Well, that was a problem at first. Sharon is beautiful and sexy and I am constantly amazed that she fell in love with me. I had trouble being near her and not getting an erection in the beginning. But after months of more and more frequent lovemaking I had begun to last much longer and now we were trying to figure out what we could do to increase the amount of pleasure that she received from intercourse. My penis wasn't overly large, but I had read up on the subject and it was within the range of what was considered normal, if only just barely.
We were still working on it though and since we are both healthy and relatively open minded, at least within our limited scope of experience, I was pretty sure that we would get better.
Our present difficulty resulted from what happened when we went out for dinner on our second anniversary last Saturday. We didn't go out often. We make pretty good money but we had been living frugally since we married, saving up for a down payment on a house and a house full of new furniture and trying to put something away towards retirement. When we did go out to dinner, which was only about once a month, we went somewhere quiet and cheap.
This night though, Sharon had wanted to cut loose a little. She wanted to go out and have a nice dinner and a bottle of wine and really enjoy ourselves. I thought it sounded like a great idea and I made reservations at a new restaurant that everyone was raving about.
It was just as good as we had heard it would be. The food was great and since we almost didn't drink and knew nothing about wine the waiter helped us select a bottle of wine that we both enjoyed very much.
We were having so much fun that when dinner was over we didn't want the evening to end. There was a small club through a door at the far end of the restaurant and we had been listening to the music all through dinner. Sharon wanted to check it out. She wanted to go in, have one more drink and maybe dance a little and then go home and make love.
We had not planned on going dancing this evening. But as we were discussing it our waiter came over and offered us coupons for two free drinks. He said that he had heard us say that it was our second anniversary and this was management's way of saying happy anniversary. The coupons were only good for this evening.
That was where the trouble started. I paid for our dinner and we went through the door into the club. It was crowded but we were able to get a small table after a short wait. I must admit that I hate dancing and loud music. Sharon knew it, but I couldn't really complain. After all, it was the first time in two years that she had asked to go dancing. The problem is that I am a terrible dancer. I am what is known as rhythmically challenged. When I dance people think I am having a fit and dial 911.
We ordered a couple of drinks. We had to ask the waitress for her recommendations since we didn't drink alcohol. When the drinks arrived we paid with the coupons. After I had a few sips of liquid courage I asked Sharon to dance and we went out onto the crowded floor. I tried not to make too big a fool of myself while Sharon danced rings around me. We stayed out there for two numbers and went back to our table. We drank a little more and the trouble started when Sharon wanted to go back out and dance some more.
I didn't refuse, but I kept putting it off. I had hoped that a little more alcohol would numb the embarrassment as I made a fool of myself out there. My normally very patient and understanding wife was not quite as patient this evening, probably due to the unusually large amount of alcohol we were consuming.
We weren't exactly fighting, but it was obvious that she was upset with me. It was so obvious that the four men at the next table noticed and one of them asked Sharon to dance.
She didn't even look at me. She smiled and accepted his invitation and I sat there watching her prance off with a complete stranger who appeared to be twice her age. She was twitching her cute butt in that little black dress as she walked towards the dance floor with the man's arm around her waist.
She was gone for a long time. They danced through the rest of the song that had been playing when they went up there and the next three songs as well. I caught glimpses of her from time to time and she looked sexy and beautiful out there. She was smiling and laughing and twirling around. I got to see a lot of her firm thighs as she danced around with that man, and I could see that I wasn't the only one watching.
I glanced at the table next to me out of the corner of my eye and I saw my wife's dance partner's three friends watching just as closely as I was. Now and then one of them would look over at me with a barely disguised look of disdain. It was very unsettling.
I resolved to leave this place as soon as Sharon returned to the table but when she was finally escorted back to the table her dance partner had stopped at the bar on the way back to our tables and as soon as Sharon sat back down a waitress delivered two fresh drinks.
I told Sharon that I wanted to leave and she just pouted and said, "Let me drink my drink honey! Come on, relax Mike. I just want to have a little fun."
I sipped my drink slowly and watched Sharon make quick work of hers. She had just about drained her glass when another man from the next table came over to our table and without even so much as a glance in my direction he invited her to dance and she was off again.
I was starting to get upset now, worried and upset. I gulped down the rest of my drink as I watched for glimpses of my wife dancing with another strange man on the dance floor and this time the waitress brought us two fresh drinks before my wife even returned to the table. I glanced over at the table next to mine and the first man that my wife had danced with smiled and lifted his glass in salute.
I managed to try to look less pissed off and raised my glass in gratitude that I did not feel. I quickly took a few sips of my fresh drink. This was my third drink after drinking half a bottle of wine with dinner. I had never had this much to drink before in my life.
