We Always Stand Up Straight

The first thing I saw when I awoke was her shirt, slung over the old Saarinen Tulip I use as a desk chair. The “VIXEN” lettering was appropriate.

“You know, I was going to make you breakfast in bed today, but I’d rather keep you around for a while,” she chuckled, and I turned over. Where the purple-haired woman was last night lay an entirely different kind of fox, this one the size of a tiger and bearing four legs, three tails, and black and silver fur, but the same red eyes.

“Girl troubles?” she had asked as she sat down across from me at the karaoke bar table. I’d just attempted “Round Here” by Counting Crows. I did better than I thought, judging by her response to my reply.

“For those you have to have had a girl.”

“Can’t imagine why you wouldn’t,” she said, “You’re actually a pretty good singer, and not bad looking, to boot.”

“Heh, and now you’re just lying. Name’s Brandon McMay, what’s yours?” I asked.

She smirked. “Call me Maria.”

“Chicago’s pretty far from Nashville.”

“Nashville’s overrated.”

    Nice. I like the double entendre inherent in “make you breakfast in bed”. Reminds me of that Saturday morning thing where the kid says, “Can you make me a banana?” “Okay, you’re a banana!”

    Good song, too.

    This was really good. Not overly belabored as some of the other “vore” stories. and I like the cut to the flashback scene in the karoke bar. Subtle dialogue references to the Couning Crows song with a hint of sexual playfulness. Just one complaint: You got the melancholy Round Here stuck in my head.

    BTW, when are you going to get a pic ? :)
