I’m a Voyeur by Victoria Blisse
As a reader of erotic romance I count myself as a literary voyeur. I like to sit in the shadows and watch a person’s life unfold before me. I enjoy seeing the intimate moments wherever they might happen with no fear of being seen and reprimanded for watching what I shouldn’t.
So when the Wednesday Briefs gang decided to come up with some hot and steamy anthologies to showcase our slightly bigger briefs -that’s 3k short stories folks before your minds disappear elsewhere- the first theme we picked was voyeurism.
It’s a theme that has inspired a great variety of responses from our authors, 14 completely different stories in two anthologies in fact. All about people watching other people enjoying themselves. A lot.
Here’s the blurb for my story in Wicked Watchers: Pursuit of Pleasure:
What’s in the Box
The things one does for siblings! Two sisters attend a performance, but the attention of one wanders, and she discovers that there are far more interesting happenings then what is going on up on the stage. Should she reveal herself, or simply keep watching the private show?
And now the excerpt:
I squirm in my seat as he runs his lips down to her neck. His hands grip her tits, his thumbs brush her nipples. There seems to be a whispered interlude and he sits in one of the old plastic chairs. The lady turns, her red curls bobbing up and down with the movement as she seductively hitches up her skirt. She’s wearing stockings; I can see the darker black stripe around her thigh. I wish I was as confident in my curves as she obviously is in hers. She sways sexily from side to side as she moves backwards. I cannot tell, but I’m sure his gaze will be fixed on her arse. I bet he’s desperate for her to sit in his lap.
Laughter rings around the auditorium. I look towards the stage for the moment and join in with a light giggle.
“Great show, isn’t it?” Janice whispers, not looking my way even for a second.
“Oh, yeah,” I reply enthusiastically, even though I know the show I’m enjoying isn’t the same one she’s talking about. I know that I should look to the stage. I really should try and pay attention so I can converse with my sister on our walk back to the train station, but I can’t because I need to know what’s happening in the box.
