This week I wanted to continue with the upcoming full length D/s novel The Change.
In this scene, Kirsten is having lunch with her best friend, Joely, and the conversation turns to what might happen with her marriage — and her sex life — now that she’s pregnant. What follows is a little portion of their conversation (my apologies in advance for having to go a little over the 8 sentence limit…)

Kirsten frowned. She hoped, prayed Kiehl wouldn’t lose interest once she started showing. She knew she’d need him to show that he still desired her, still valued her. She knew it was stupid, going against all the feminist ideals drilled into her from an early age. But there was something inside her that needed it. If she was going to carry a man’s baby, she needed to know more than ever that her man loved her, still lusted after her.
Still, she wondered if a part of her might be afraid sex would endanger the baby. Especially with the recently added dimension to their relationship. They’d have to tackle that issue when they came to it.
Her phone buzzed in her purse, and she pulled it out. It was Kiehl.
<As soon as you set foot in this house, I’m going to fuck you. Just a warning.>
Her shaking hands fumbled her phone, and it bounced off her lap and down to the floor.
“Dammit,” she said, looking under the table.
God, please don’t let Joely see that.
“Did it fall over here?” Joely leaned to the side, scanning the floor.
“No — no, that’s OK. I’ve got it.”
Thankfully, she was able to retrieve the phone and slip it back into her purse.
Their food showed up and they both ate in silence for a few minutes. She thought of what Kiehl might be doing at that very moment, what he was thinking about. If he knew what she was thinking about, he’d probably track her down at the restaurant and drag her home like a caveman.
That would be great as long as there was hair pulling and spanking.
She giggled putting her hand to her mouth.
“What?” Joely said through a mouthful of food.
“Oh, sorry. Just thinking about something Kiehl said.”
Joely swallowed, and took a sip of her wine. “Like what?
“He just — he’s looking forward to seeing me.”
“Ahh, someone’s getting laid this afternoon.” Joely winked at her.
Kirsten could feel her cheeks warming.
“Don’t be embarrassed,” Joely said, pointing her fork at her. “I’m happy for you guys, really.”
“Let me ask you something though.” Joely pointed down at the book she had lent to Kirsten. “If that smut didn’t really do it for you, what does? How do you guys keep things hot?”
Kirsten felt her blush deepen. “I don’t know, Joely. Maybe this isn’t the right place–”
“Oh stop, Kirsten. Nobody’s going to hear. Just talk softly. I’ve got good ears.” Joely wiggled her eyebrows.
Kirsten took a drink from her water, licking her lips. “OK, so we have this — thing. It wasn’t anything we planned, we just kind of fell into it. But it’s been growing, getting more serious.”
“Oh this sounds good.”
“Well, we call it ‘The Game’. I know it sounds dumb.”
“What is it? New position every day? Do it in public? What?”
Kirsten cleared her throat, her voice lowering. “So, I stumbled onto this website one day…”
