And we're not even to the real smut yet. OMG. (BTW, Lois just smacked me for calling it smut. Look, any scene with more than one orgasm in it counts as smut in my book, y'all!)
Anyway, as of this moment, we're at 6,261 words and 12 pages. Not bad for this early in the week! Well, considering that this scene was started in March '07 - at least that early - it's been a looooong wait but we hope it's worth it. The beta team will probably enthusiastically vouch for it...
There's still two scenes to finish and one to write. But who knows, this one might actually get to the betas early. And the next chapter is almost done already ... it's sort of a continuation of this one. If this week's chapter is the foreplay, next week's chapter is the climax. So to speak.
(If you didn't guess, this is Anissa writing this post. Lois will kill me.)
ETA: Lois just dies of embarassment. So much for keeping what it is even slightly a secret!
Oh, you want a spoiler? I suppose I could spoil you all from the non-sexy portions of the chapter... Nah. I think you might stalk me to my house and hold me hostage until I hand over the whole chapter if I do that. So here's your spoiler:
Smiling in his sleep, he gathered her close.
For a long time they simply lay together in the shelter of each other’s arms, the rhythms of their breath becoming synchronized. But then he nuzzled her hair, and Lois whimpered softly and snuggled closer to him. Kal-El slid his hand down her back, caressing her, and he was still more asleep than awake when he began to kiss her.
At first, the kisses were sweet and slow, gentle and loving. He stroked her back and her side lightly, adoringly, and his lips were tender. But gradually that familiar need began to build between them, and his touch grew surer as his mouth grew bolder. As it had begun, Kal-El had been asleep enough to think it wouldn’t matter if he kissed her. They could always stop, the way they’d stopped in Kansas. But here there were no inquisitive twins calling for them, no Ma Kent watching them amusedly.
That's all for now. :D
ETA: *kicks Anissa in the butt* Stay tuned, guys. *kicks the co-author again, just for good measure*
