Reading 50 Shades of Grey

CONTINUED FROM PART 1…

With snowflakes slowly drifting down giving white freckles to the face of the midnight sky, Scroogette found herself in the middle of a modern street not unlike the one adjacent to her own driveway.

“Home at last,” she thought.

“Not exactly,” countered a tall, dark-skinned woman in a green dress, guiding Scroogette to the living room window of the house before them.

Inside the room was a petite, cheery-eyed, black-haired woman in pajamas, tidying up after her recently departed guests. With a sigh of relief she flopped onto her sofa, grabbed a book and slid a wrapped present aside on the table in front of her, making room for her slippered feet.

“What’s she reading?” asked Scroogette.

“Fifty Shades of Grey,” the woman said. “It’s turned into an international phenomenon, having a profound effect on how the women of the world perceive their sexuality. It’s about a woman erotically exploring her sexuality through experimentation and bondage.”

Scrooge gasped. “But she looks like such a normal, proper young woman!”

“Well she is,” the woman laughed, as if answering the silly question of a child. “What’s more normal than exploring your own sexuality?”

“So what’s in that wrapped box?” Scroogette asked.

“That’s her boyfriend’s Christmas present. She’s surprising him with a PicoBong™ Evilution Series light bondage accessory set. Their sex life has become routine recently and her reading has inspired her to take action.”

“So I’ve already met the Ghost of Christmas Past, you must be the Ghost of Christmas Future. How many years in the future will all this become commonplace?” confidently and seemingly cleverly asked Scroogette.

“I’m merely the Ghost of Christmas Present,” laughed the woman again. “If you think this is the future of sex…you’re in for quite the surprise.”

“Wait! So I can still expect another visitor?” asked Scroogette, turning to her side in disbelief.

However, the street was empty; the howling wind the only witness to her inquisition.
