January 2003

As expected, Maggie was already showered and in bed, when I got back to the hotel. I quickly joined her.

She was watching a movie, so rather than disturb her, I just held her, gently kissing her neck and shoulders. 'Lets make love' she said

'Actually, I want to talk to you, first. Wait until the film is finished'

So we waited, and then, some 30 minutes later I asked:

'So what do you want for your birthday? It was the following day.

I knew what she wanted already, and I'd decided before I left the UK that I would buy it for her. So the question was just a bit of play.

'What do you want to buy me?' she asked.
'Well, I have an idea, but I don’t want to say yet, I'd rather you told me what you want first'
'Honey, I want to hear you idea'
'I asked first'
'Yeah, and I asked second'

We reached stalemate.

'Ok' I said. 'You write down your idea, and I write down mine. Then we compare. Hopefully, we will make the same choice'

So I passed her a sheet of hotel note paper, and took a sheet for myself, which I tore into two pieces. On the first piece I wrote a joke present, on the second, the real present. I slipped the second piece of paper under the pillow.

'Are you ready?'
'Ok, honey'
'Right then' I said, 'on a count of three, we put our ideas here' I pointed to the centre of the bed.
I picked up her suggestion, and she picked up mine.

'Honey' she was laughing, 'I can't ride a bike'
'But it will be useful for getting to work'
I looked at her note, 'and there aren't any castles in Hong Kong' I added.

'You know what babe' I smiled, 'I have another note under the pillow'
'You know what honey' she smiled back, 'so do I'

Oh Steve, how you love to toy with me. You know how I love the sweet torture of anticipation.

Then Theresa, I will toy with you some more.
There are many more twists and turns.
I like to torture women. In a sweet way, of course
