Spreading Her/His Wings
For 15 years, Melanie was a devoted wife and mother. For years, she took care of house and home, providing healthy meals for her family, making sure that her husband always had clean and pressed suits for work, and generally making sure that everything ran smoothly. Her world revolved around her children to the point that she lost sight of who she was. It was so bad, that now that her youngest was in high school too, Melanie was lost. She was listless, with no idea what to do with herself now her children were older and not really needing her quite so much as they had when they were little.
In an effort to keep herself busy, Melanie set out to redecorate the house. They’d always wanted to finish the basement and turn it into a media center/game room type space, but right now it was stuffed to the ceiling with all of the things that had been accumulated during the span of 15 years. So, this was where she started. It was time to go through all the junk that they’d been holding onto for years, furniture, and every single work of “art” her little ones had brought home, all of it. She spent hours every day going through it and getting rid of things that just weren’t necessary to keep anymore. Her pet project; however, became seriously derailed the day she found the box. Tucked away in the back of one of the two rooms in the basement, it was conspicuously devoid of the dust that everything else had gathered. She wasn’t sure what she was expecting to find when she opened it, but she hadn’t been expecting to see the things she did find.
Inside this box, there was all manner of sex toys. Leather whips, handcuffs, chains, weird masks, a ball with straps on it, and more things that she didn’t dare touch. Some of it, she could guess what its use was, but there were some things in there that she couldn’t even fathom what purpose they might serve. Distressed that it might belong to one of her teenagers, Melanie dragged the box up two flights of stairs to her bedroom, where she left it in her closet to wait until later.
That night, after the kids had gone to bed, and it was just her and her husband, Melanie led him upstairs, telling him that there was something serious going on that she needed to discuss with him. She was afraid one of the kids had gotten hooked up with a disturbing group of friends. She was beside herself as she dragged the large box, quite familiar to her husband, out of her closet. That was when he sat her down and explained to her about his desire to be dominated by a woman. He’d had this desire for as long as he could remember, and he’d pushed it aside as long as he could, but he had begun to have an affair a year ago. Melanie sat, listening in stunned silence as her husband told her about his Mistress, and how she had not only met his needs, but helped to improve things in his marriage. She was positively floored when he handed her a card out of his wallet with a name and number on it and said, “She’s been wanting to meet you. When you’re ready, Sweetheart, give her a call.”
During the entire time they were married, Melanie could count on one hand the number of nights she had slept alone in her bed. That night was one of them. Sending her husband downstairs to the guest room, Melanie cried herself to sleep, wondering how she could have failed her husband, and herself, so badly.
It took her another week to finally make the call and meet this Mistress. Why she was doing that, instead of filing for divorce, Melanie had no idea. But here she was, in the lobby of an upscale hotel room, on her way to meet a woman who claimed she could teach Melanie how to fulfill her husband’s desires, teach her how to be the Mistress her husband so desperately needed and wanted.
NOTE: For a small group game, someone could play the wife, someone else play the Mistress and another to play the husband.
Alternatively, as the subject of this post suggestions, this story could be written with the husband looking to spread his wings. It would also be suitable for a MxM or FxF pairing. The possibilities and variations for this particular story idea really are only limited by the imagination. The above summary is only one way it could be taken and run with, and was written when I originally intended to write for the role of the wife (Melanie in this case) myself. So, if you like the idea but want to make a few changes to it, feel free! It's yours for the taking.
