A Rude Awakening
Just after I had the thought to run away, I glanced up and noticed a row of provocative photos hanging from the walls and I felt my cheeks flush. Oh come on Britt, live a little. You know you want to know more!
”If there are no questions, we will meet back here every Tuesday and Sunday night at 11pm. Please take your folders home and read over the contracts along with all the other paperwork and bring them back to me next week.”
Everyone stood from their seats and left at the same time but I just sat there in my chair wondering what I should do next. I needed to find that lady and explain to her that this was all a mistake but the longer I sat there and thought about it the longer I considered giving it a try, I mean what's the worst that could happen.
A few minutes later, Mistress returned to the room "Ms. Richard's is there something I can do for you?"
I jumped up when she addressed me and turned around so fast I almost fell over then I smiled at her and said "No, ma'am, uh I mean I will see you next week."
I bolted past her as gracefully as I could and ran through the exit straight to my car. Who am I kidding? This type of lifestyle is not for me.
Once I got to my car I quickly got in and drove straight to the park. My plans for tonight had taken a surprising and sadistic turn and I didn't even get to lose my virginity.
I turned the corner into the empty parking lot and pulled into a space closest to the entrance. Ever since I moved here, I would come to this park when I had a rough day or needed to figure things out. I got out of my car still stunned at what had just happened and walked to the swing set and sat down. I started pushing myself higher and higher then leaned back and let the wind hit me in the face as I glided back and forth in the air.
The thoughts of what kinds of things happen behinds those walls was disturbing but what was more deranged was the fact that I was seriously considering doing it. I had no idea what it entailed but the more I sat here inhaling the cool autumn air, the more I imagined myself at the mercy of some man who could do things to my body and mind that no one has ever achieved before, there was only one little thing in the way, again. My virginity!
But no one has to know that I'm severely inexperienced, right? If I am going to do this I will need to do some serious research and the first thing that comes to mind is the internet. I jumped off the swing and made my way back to my car. The only problem was keeping this secret to myself, especially from Tara.
Once I got home, I stealthily made my way to my room and locked the door, grabbed my laptop from my bag and opened it. I searched the adult websites that Tara had introduced me and began wincing at the sight of some of them before closing it and curling up in my bed. Tara must have still been out because if she knew I was here she would have bombarded me with questions as soon as I got home.
I closed my eyes and pictures of women handcuffed to the bedposts, blindfolded and whipped with an assortment of frilly belts, danced around in my head. My pulse began to accelerate and the more I envisioned the satisfying expressions on their faces the harder it became to sleep. I propped myself up on my elbows and huffed in exacerbation.
Whenever I couldn't sleep, my mind always took me back to Ethan and how he made me feel. It was nights like this that I regretted deleting him from my life and I always ended up hoping that he would forgive me if I ever had the chance to see him again. Who was I kidding, he probably moved on to bigger and better pastures by now, why would he wait around for someone like me?
"Ughhhhhhh. Get it together Britt, if you're going to do this then you have to gain some backbone and that includes getting in touch with Ethan."
I flopped back onto the bed with a new determination, maybe this would make me a bolder person in all aspects, goodness knows I never had a problem expressing how I felt to Ethan but when it came other areas of my life, I usually let everything slide. Closing my eyes, I quickly drifted off into Neverland.
The next morning, I heard a soft knock coming from the other side of my door, panic suddenly sank in when I realized that I would have to tell Tara something and I wasn't sure how she would react if she knew I didn't go through with my original plans and now I'm keeping another enormous secret from her.
"Come in." I said quietly trying to make it convincing that I was in post coitus mode.
She opened the door and peered in with a Cheshire grin and slowly snuck across the floor carefully sitting down on the edge of my bed.
"Sooooooooooooo, how do you feel?"
I groaned and pulled the covers over my head. "Please don't make me talk about it."
"Oh come on, it couldn't have been that bad or you would have called me the second you got laid."
I rolled my eyes as she continued cooing about how my first time was perfect and exactly what I wanted as I inwardly cringed. I hated lying to her and the thought that she could find out and possibly do something drastic made it even worse. I continued to let her talk all while I sat under the covers trying to figure out how far I wanted to go with this lie when she pulled them down making me jump.
"Are you even listening to me?"
"Yes, I just don't want to talk about this with you. It was my first time, it was painful and that's it. Now can I go back to being sore alone?"
She chuckled and ran into my bathroom grabbing a bottle of ibuprofen and some water. She handed me two and made me drink it down then said "If you are still sore I have a heating pad in my bedroom. I will be with Kyle for the rest of the weekend so you can recover here in peace."
She slapped me on the butt and walked away laughing as I threw a pillow at her. I was extremely relieved when she left knowing that for now the conversation was over but I know Tara and eventually she would want details, details that I didn't have and wasn't sure that I would ever be able to give her.
I got up and headed straight to the shower since tonight would be my first night at the restaurant and I needed to be completely focused in order to be at my best, just like James was expecting. I finished in the bathroom and grabbed my uniform, making sure it was ironed and pressed before I put it on.
From what James said, starting on a Sunday was always the easiest, since the crowd was thin and dedicated to mostly older people and families. He assured me I would never fail if I stuck to the most basic menu they had to offer but his executive chef was extremely hard to impress.
With an hour left to spare, I walked to the restaurant hoping that the fresh air would clear my head for the long night ahead and to my surprise when I arrived I was already feeling much better. I walked into the side entrance and found James in his office.
I knocked on the door and waited for him to see me before I said hello.
"Hello Brittany, I'm so glad you're finally here. We have a lot to do so let's get started by filling out some of these forms. The first is your direct deposit application, the second is for your benefits and lastly your personal information. Here is a pen and I will be back shortly, I have some invoices to file."
I nodded my head and started writing on the papers. They didn't take long to complete them when James walked back into the office. I handed him the paperwork as we chatted a little. He gave me a complete tour and gave me the codes to all the stock rooms including the reserved room exclusively for the VIP patrons and explained that on special occasions they did one-on-one dining experiences.
After aN hour of walking around and absorbing all of the monotonous information I could take, I was finally lead into the kitchen to begin my training. The previous Sioux chef had left unexpectedly causing a huge amount of chaos to unfold and I was hired to try and fix it, hopefully.
I was introduced to the entire kitchen staff and welcomed graciously by them all except a very snooty saucier by the name of Veronica. James gave me a run down of all my duties and told me to jump right in wherever I felt comfortable. The nerves hit me head on but soon I was moving right along in tune with everyone else.
The slow rush, as everyone called it only lasted for a few hours, much less than I was used to at the diner and soon we were cleaning our areas and getting things ready for the next day. All in all my first night went a lot smoother than I was expecting and just as I was about to leave, James pulled me into his office.
"So, how do you feel about the place so far? I know it was a bit quiet but I wanted to ease you into the mayhem before things started getting really crazy around the holidays."
"It was a very smooth transition and I wanted to thank you again for giving me this opportunity."
He nodded his head and pulled a large wooden box from underneath his desk and handed it to me. "By the way, my brother dropped this off for you. Welcome to the Bronto’s family Brittany. I will see you next week."
Britt, girl what are you about to get yourself into???? And do you really think you can handle it????
So Ethan decided to drop and run I see. Is it possible it would be too hard to see her or too hard to stay away from her?
What will she think about his present?
