The Challenge (continued)

It's here.  My latest Loving His China Doll is available.  You're never quite sure if it will be available when you expect.  Amazon, the great Poobah, has control and their whims are unpredictable, but it's here and I'm not complaining. Someone reminded me that the books are also available on Amazon.  I always advertise the LSF link because the Amazon link is also available from there.  We, being LSF and me and other LSF authors, get a bigger piece of the pie that way. Amazon doesn't need the money - lol.  DJ Black always advises his readers of the same fact and being in the same category with DJ Black for any reason is pretty awesome.

At any rate, I've been told it's my best one to date, but you be the judge.  If you read it, let me know what you think and as always I'm asking that you post a review on the Amazon and/or LSF site - it really does help sales.

Okay, enough marketing for today.  Here is the continuation of The Challenge story, as promised.  If you want to read from the beginning, go for it.


Wendy accepted Brian’s apology for his last sarcastic remark.  She took a big breath and began laying out her proposal.

“This is difficult for me to say.  However, it needs saying.  I’m attracted to you, more than I care to admit even to myself.  What I want to know is, do you feel the same about me?  I am not asking for any kind of commitment just a simple yes or no answer will do for now?”  She stopped talking and waited for Brian to respond.

“Is this a trick question?

“No, just give me an honest answer and frankly if it is taking you this long to respond, the answer must be no and you are gaging how to make it more palatable.”

“So now you ask the question and answer too.  Let me answer for myself, is that even possible for you?  You always seem to bring out the worst in me, or shall I say, think the worst of me?”

“I apologize.  I’ll be quiet while I wait for your answer.”

“Before I respond to your question, are you asking for a personal or professional answer?”

“Geez Louise, Brian. Respond to the damn question in any way you want.  I’m telling you that my body responds to you in ways that scare the hell out of me, and you’re asking if it’s personal or professional.  Professionally, I can’t ever remember getting wet panties before.”  She watched his face as he tried to conceal his mirth.

“Don’t you dare laugh at me, Brian Sanderson.”

“I’m not laughing at you.  I’m merely surprised.  I don’t think I’ve ever had a conversation like this before.  The answer is yes; I am attracted to you both personally and professionally.”

“Okay, then my proposal is that we keep things professional here in the workplace.  By that I mean you treat me as you would another colleague, male or female.  Outside of Sanderson  Manufacturing, we can pursue all the kinkiness you’d like.”

“Does that mean you would come back to work?”

“Under the conditions I outlined, yes.  I like my job, I’m good at it and frankly Brian, you need the help.”  He couldn’t help but smile at her accurate assessment of his current abilities. 

“Okay, we have a deal.  I won’t spank you at work anymore. Everything else remains as I stated at our first meeting.  I still have the final say. Agreed?”

“Agreed.” He rose to shake her hand.  When their hands grasped, they both received a shock and laughed.

“Now that we have that settled, care to give me an assessment of how the meeting went?”

She proceeded to tell him her thoughts and complimented him on the way he handled the meeting.
“I especially liked that didn’t pretend to know everything but were willing to learn.  I think that goes a long way toward making the employees trust you.”

“Good.  That is what I wanted to convey.  Now to more important matters.”  Wendy’s head shot up. “What now?”

“Will you have dinner with me this evening?”

“I’d love to.  I’m pretty hungry.  For some reason, I missed lunch,” and her face got that telltale blush he was beginning to expect when she was embarrassed.

Dinner went well.  Once Wendy lowered her hackles, she realized that Brian was charming and not as haughty as she had originally thought.  She appreciated his courtly manners and loved listening to an accent that now sounded delightful. Learning his colloquialisms and recognizing his dry wit and sense of humor would take time but it was time she willing to spend.

When the evening was over, he drove her back to Sanderson Manufacturing to pick up her car.  If he was waiting for an invite back to her place, he was disappointed. Wendy wanted to test their working relationship a bit before she hopped into bed with him. She thanked him for dinner and a lovely evening before giving him a chaste good-night kiss that she quickly broke off before it expanded into something more. She turned the key and drove off watching him in the rearview mirror.

She tossed and turned most of the night thinking about the events of the day.  It was certainly a day she wouldn’t forget anytime soon.  Her life had changed today and time would tell if it was for better or worse. One thing she knew for sure, she couldn’t wait to explore whatever ‘kinkiness’ Brian had in mind.  She broke out her vibrator and thought about being naked and draped over Brian’s knee – the orgasm that followed came fast and furious.

Brian too spent a sleepless night.  He wondered where his agreement with Wendy would lead? Was it wise to get personally involved with her?  After all, his uncle intended her to become his business partner, could he juggle his personal feelings and put them aside at work? Right now, all he could think about was getting her into his bed.  The thought of undressing her and running his hand down her curves excited him.   Her lips were feather soft, and he wondered if the rest of her skin felt the same.  He imagined her bare-assed naked over his knee as he pinked her bottom.  Damn, he was going to have to take another cold shower to relieve some of the sexual frustration that had built up merely thinking about her.  Working with Wendy was not going to be easy.

The next day Wendy was in early and going over what she had missed the previous day. She was sitting at her desk when Brian arrived.  He stuck his head in the door to say good morning and asked if she had time to go over some things with him. 

“Sure, want to come in here or should we meet in your office?”

“Why not neutral territory.  Let me get settled and we’ll meet in the conference room in about fifteen minutes.”

“Sounds good to me,” Wendy replied.  ‘Wow, this is a whole new man.’she thought to herself.

The meeting started off agreeably, but it wasn’t long before the two of them began butting heads.  The congenial atmosphere of the night before had disappeared, and their raised voices caused Connie to come over and close the door.  They went back and forth with Wendy telling Brian he should learn a little more about the business before he started changing things.

“As I’ve said before Wendy, I will listen to what you have to say, but the final decision is mine, and I’ll take responsibility if it fails.”

“You bet you will, and I’ll make sure everyone knows it was your decision.”  As far as she was concerned the meeting was over, and she walked out of the conference room and slammed the door behind her.  Brian shook his head.  This was going to be harder than I imagined; he said to himself. Going over the plans again convinced him it was the right thing to do. Now all he had to do was get Wendy on board or forge ahead without her. He didn’t want to do that. ‘Damn, she was a headstrong woman and needed to get a rein on her temper. A firm hand was needed; too bad he had agreed to her workplace terms. He’d love nothing better than to take her over his knee right know to make her see the error of her ways.’  That thought raised more than his hackles.

When Wendy left the conference room, she walked out on the manufacturing floor.  The humming of the machines always soothed her.  She thought about Brian’s plan as she walked along inspecting the different venues.  ‘He might be right.  It’s been a long time since we added a new product and complacency in their business never worked for long.The competition was always knocking at the door.’

She walked back to the office area and stuck her head in Brian’s room. His head was down and looked engrossed, but his fingers were drumming out a beat on his desk.  ‘I wonder if he’s thinking about drumming a beat on my ass. Damn, she said to herself, now I have damp panties again.  I’m going to have to remember to bring in a spare pair because I have a feeling I’ll be needing them on a regular basis.’

“You have a minute?”

“That depends.  I’m not sure I could keep my hands to myself if we have another go round like before.”

“Maybe we should wait until tonight then.  Dinner, at my place?” she asked.

“Is humble pie on the menu?” The smirk on his face told her just what she wanted to know. Another gush of wetness and she’d soak right through to her jeans.
