This week’s specialty is Dystopia…
I recently read a post by a fellow Decadent author about whether or not to have characters eating in a story. It can be very tricky, and authors need to be sure characters are not talking with their mouths full. It can also be a lot of fun, and very sexy!
The second story in The Underground series, Never Gonna Desert You has two moments that I recall where characters are eating. While it is mostly replicated food, there is the odd moment where characters are able to find something fresh. Here’s one of those moments from the story…
*** ADULT EXCERPT ***
Reaching into her bag, she pulled out a container, her present to Melina. “Happy anniversary.”
Her girlfriend accepted the gift with a look of caution. “Thank you. What is it?”
“Open it.” Brook nodded, anxiously awaiting her reaction.
Melina pulled the lid from the container and gasped. “Strawberries?” She sniffed the bowl. “They have a smell. They’re not replicated. Where did you find them?”
“I grew them for you.”
“You did?” Melina’s eyes glazed over.
She nodded. She would do anything for Melina. “Yes. I remember you telling me how you wanted to taste them, see if I….” Her cheeks flushed. If I taste the same.
Melina’s expression changed. She grinned, eyes sparkling. “Well, let’s find out.” She removed a strawberry from the container and placed the ripe fruit between her full lips.
God, she wanted to kiss her. Brook groaned, suddenly envious of the berry. “How is it?”
Melina stared at her while taking a bite. She slurped in a piece, red juice running down her chin. “Mmm, better than I ever imagined.”
Then Melina leaned forward. Her moist lips met the sensitive skin of Brook’s neck, sending liquid heat rushing through her veins. Brook’s pussy throbbed. If they’d been in her apartment, Brook would have Melina naked already.
Melina pulled away, running her finger down between Brook’s breasts. “But I’d rather taste you any day.”
Brook’s head spun. Electric tension left her synapses firing. “Maybe we have time to—”
“One hour until curfew,” the mechanical voice belted out, chilling her desire.
