50 shades of what???? Really? What just happened to me?
The soft click of a door caused me to open my eyes as I struggled to adjust to the dimmed lighting of the room. I instantly recognized the haunting melody of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata coming from somewhere in the far distance.
The melancholy notes of the piano seemed to announce it was over, and yet…the melody kept going on and on through trills, grace notes and the balance was amazing…both the music, and for me. I felt sad and yet exhilarated at the same time. I didn’t want it to end, perhaps as long as the song kept playing…..
Had I fallen asleep in my utter contentment? I was strangely aware that I was alone in a room where there once had been two. I remember a whisper in my ear just moments before, but couldn’t for the life of me remember the words spoken. My hands dropped to my sides and I felt the warmed sheet beneath me…and I remembered the warm feel of those nimble fingers touching my skin.
I had never felt anything like this! Of course this wasn’t my first time, my goodness at my age this was certainly not the first and yet…in a way it was. I had never ever experienced this,… this overall feeling of complete satisfaction.
I didn’t want it to end…please come back I silently pleaded. But I was indeed alone. I groaned as I remembered that just moments before I was moaning softly as I felt my body being pushed almost beyond its limits. Was there a tinge of pain? If there was it was a pain that led to more feelings of pleasure.
The time had come. I must get up and get dressed and leave this wonderful place where all my desires were met.
I looked at the clock at the far side of the room and noticed the hour was 6:30 in the evening. Had it only been an hour? If that were true, it certainly wasn’t enough time. Wouldn’t a whole afternoon have been better? But already the evening shadows were starting to slowly drift down and I needed to get home. I didn’t want to go…I wanted to relive the pleasures or at least reflect on the pleasures just a little while longer
Reality set in. I would have to tell the Captain. He knew I was here and would want to know how the experience was for me. He kept track of things like that. He had a listing in his phone of favorites for me. He said he just wanted me to be happy.
I finished dressing glancing at the door from time to time, hoping….yet knowing it was over. I slipped into my shoes as the last deep notes in a C Sharp Minor Chord played on the piano;… sounding an ending to both the Sonata and my euphoria. My drink was waiting for me and I gulped it down so quickly that the coldness of it burned my throat.
Sadly, I began the long walk away from that room…that special room holding all those special memories that I had experienced just moments before. I looked out into the night darkness, knowing that this was not going to be the last time. No, I was determined this definitely would not be the last.
I glanced up and standing before me was the Captain! His eyes searching mine for hope or encouragement. I smiled and nodded.
“Was it good for you?” he asked almost hesitantly!
“oh, very much so.” I answered shyly. ” I believe this was the best full body massage I have ever had.”
“I am so glad!”, the Captain announced as he laid the gratuities on the counter of Massage Envy for his masseuse and mine. “You finally found a good one for you.” he continued. “What was her name?” he asked pulling out his cell phone so he could note it. He knew I would forget long before the next appointment. His listing included notes like …this one is good…this one not so good….etc.
The Captain is such a sweet one…. and so is Candy! Candy was the best ever! Who knew Candy would be so good for you and be sweet too! Who needs 50 shades of anything when one has a good Masseuse?
Here is a link to Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, or you can go to my Featured Video at the upper right corner of my home page to hear this beautiful Sonata! As I was working on this post…I played this Sonata to help me remember those tender moments….that is kinda how I roll! But you knew that about me already didn’t you? 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-MT5zeY6CU
The Captain says
You think your jaw hit the floor reading this one, you should have seen mine!!!!!!!!!
I love when I can get the best of you…I knew I had you going on that one. I am sure you figured it out when I said you kept notes in your phone about which one to use, since we always go to Massage Envy together.
I love that you keep track of that for me too…Gosh, Captain…I guess I just love you!
When my niece was six, she started playing the classics, and Beethoven had several she played. Moonlight Sonata is beautiful.
Your post was very sensous today. A good masseuse can make you feel that way. Wink!
I know what you mean…some of the classical music is just classical! I really enjoy listening to it.
Actually when I have a massage, it has been difficult to find a massage therapist that addresses all my aches and pains…from knee aches and pains to feet issues. So when I found Candy…I was so excited that she addressed the areas like the neck and shoulder stress tension area and the joint pain from my knees as well as a good old fashioned foot rub. Who doesn’t love that? I was so relieved to finally find a therapist with just the right pressure in her fingers. Some have been too light and some were considered deep tissue and one can get really sore from the latter…but as I said. Candy was great and I definitely will have her name in my contacts when I need my next massage.!
