Book Excerpt from Deceitful Secrets by Letrise Carter
The alarm goes off at 6 a.m. I hit snooze for ten more minutes. I see my husband Devin does not move. I know he heard that alarm clock going off because he just rolls over and pulls the comforter over his head. I lie here, thinking of messing with him, but change my mind. We had a gorgeous night last night of passionate lovemaking.
Besides, I cannot be late for work this morning. I have way too much to do at the office. I roll over and look at the clock; it seems like time is just standing still, for its only 6:05 a.m. So, I guess I will just get up. I reach over to turn the snooze off and get out of bed. I could leave it on. Maybe then Devin will be forced to get his tail out of bed.
I walk into our huge master bathroom, which any woman could live in for days, with a separate Jacuzzi tub equipped with the best vibrating, relaxing, high power turbo jets one could dream of. Let us not forget the shower with not one but two shower heads facing opposite walls. You can just stand there and let the hot water hit your body in all the right spots. I look back towards the bed, no movement from my husband. I gave it to him so good last night that I knocked him right out. I pat myself on the back with big smile for a job well done. I am going to have to tell him about this powerful knock-out sex when he wakes up. I wash my hands before I get into my morning routine of brushing my teeth and washing my caramel face.
Afterwards, I reach over to turn the shower on, still no Devin. He does not even moan with the shower going. Usually when I turn the water on, he comes right in to join me in the shower. This man cannot still be that sound asleep. So, I shower and take my time, hoping that Devin will wake up to the running water and join me. Hell, I have been in here for fifteen minutes and my husband does not make his way out of that bed. I reach over to turn the shower off and wrap myself in towel. I walk out of the master bathroom only to see Devin still asleep.
This man is so sexy while he sleeps that it makes you want to run over and mount him like the sexy stallion he is. I mean, he is light-skinned, with goatee and six-pack abs, standing 6’4 with that fine baby hair every woman desire. He is built right in all the right places. I think to myself, Damn, I did good. But I got to stop before I make myself late and him too. Lord have mercy on my mind this morning but thank you for my husband. I do feel blessed to have him and will do everything to keep him.
I call out his name and he just moan something I cannot make out; it sounds foreign to me. Devin rolls over to face me with that I do not want to get out of bed look.
I say, “Get up, you will be late again.”
“I feel like playing hooky this morning, Taylor, and you should join me. You look sexy as hell in that towel, standing there dripping wet.” Devin smiles and blinks his eyes to focus more on my naked body. So, I do what most women would in this situation so early in the morning: I drop my towel and smile at him so he can get out of the bed.
