Keith shrank back in his chair a little as Margaret and Diane stared at him. Under their scrutiny he felt about two feet tall and he was desperate not to do anything to upset them. He really couldn't face the humiliation of them spanking him again, not after what had already happened this evening, and if Danielle was going to be present it would be even more intolerable. Even as he shrank back from them he decided he was not going to be intimidated and he was not going to give in to their silly games. He was a man and he was going to stand up for himself.
"So what about me, Keith?" asked Diane.
"Um... what about you?" he asked uncertainly.
"Would you like to have sex with me?" she asked.
Keith's eyes boggled. What kind of question was that to ask? And in front of Margaret? He couldn't answer. There was no answer. If he said yes Margaret would be cross with him and she might decide to spank him. If he said no, then Diane might be offended, and decide to spank him.
"That's... that's... not a polite question, Diane" he said.
"I'm only asking" said Diane "I don't even know if it would be alright with Margaret. She's the boss after all."
Margaret watched Keith closely and she slowly turned to look at Diane. Would she mind? She wasn't really sure. She tried to work it out. If anyone had suggested, even yesterday, that Keith have sex with another woman she would have exploded in a jealous rage. He was her man, her protector, her provider. She'd have built a twelve foot fence around him, topped it with razor wire, and manned a machine gun post.
But now... Now things seemed different somehow. It wasn't that she felt any differently about Keith. It wasn't that she loved him any less or needed him any less. It wasn't even that she feared losing him any less. It was her attitude to sex that had changed, not her attitude to Keith. She had always seen sex as a deeply intimate, deeply moving thing that should only be shared between two responsible adults who loved each other very deeply and shared a common commitment to a long term and stable relationship. This was the attitude to sex she had held as long as she could remember, but now she had begun to question that.
She remembered the brief charge of excitement she had felt when she met the new doctor, and how Isabelle had seemed to have an easy familiarity that was strangely attractive and comfortable. She remembered her reaction to seeing Gary with his trousers and pants down for the first time, when he had turned from the wall and his penis had come into view. She remembered the breathlessness she had experienced when she had taken Gary's erect penis in her hand. She also remembered Paul. The excitement she had felt taking him in her arms, the joy of their love-making, the excitement she felt now at the prospect of a repeat of that performance. Did she love Keith any the less as a consequence? She didn't think so. Did she want to have sex with Gary? As soon as the question was formed in her mind she grew moist and apprehensive. Dear God! She did! She closed her eyes and took a deep breath. What about the doctor? What if... She clasped her hands in her lap knowing that she was at yet another important crossroads, one she would probably never be able to turn back from. 'Be brave, Margaret!' she told herself. Hadn't she already given Keith permission anyway? Hadn't she already told him that so long as he was honest with her, so long as he told her...
Margaret became conscious that Diane was studying her carefully with a slight smile and that Keith was staring at her looking terrified.
"I don't mind" said Margaret "If you want him. He's got a lovely bum."
"I know" said Diane "That's what first attracted me to him. I've always had a weakness for nice bums."
"You should see the new doctor's" said Margaret.
"I will" said Diane.
"Um, ladies, if you don't mind, do you think we could change the subject?" said Keith.
"Margaret doesn't seem to mind" said Diane, turning back to Keith "So what do you say?"
"I don't say anything" said Keith "I'm married to Margaret. I have sex with Margaret. Only with Margaret. That's the end of the story."
"But it's not the end of the story, is it?" said Diane "You'd like to have sex with Victoria wouldn't you. And Emily. Admit it!"
"No, I wouldn't. I'm quite satisfied with Margaret, that's quite enough for me. I don't need anyone else, not Victoria, not Emily - and for God's sake they're just children - and not you!" said Keith.
"Quite satisfied?" said Margaret sounding quite offended "Only quite satisfied?"
