Something was beginning to rise from out of its padded confines. Sheila was standing next to him, her hand still in his, unable to take her eyes from the glistening creature that was emerging, like a monstrous butterfly, from its cocoon. She wore nothing else apart from a large, pink and obviously wet ball gag, the largest size available, held in her mouth by a thick black leather strap that was buckled tightly, she might say too tightly, if indeed she could speak at all, at the back of her head. Something alive because its breathing could now be heard very clearly, rasping back and forth, in and out, slowly and deeply, resounding from corner to corner of the smoke filled room and adding greatly to the air of unreality. The only lighting came from two small halogen spotlights set in the ceiling, but the tall woman would not have been aware of them because over her eyes was a thick, padded, black leather blindfold.
Synopsis: The first part of a trilogy consisting of The Box, The Box Part Two - Persephone's Revenge and Retribution this focuses on the lives of the people connected to The Box and in particular Bill and Sheila, who receive it as a mysterious gift and Ally, the boxes occupant. Faded blue jeans fitted her legs and bottom perfectly. " She was pacing around the room like a caged animal, her eyes focussed all the while on the black, square, object in the centre. It's got FRAGILE in big red letters written all over it! " "Of course it's bloody ours, it's got our address on it! She moved closer and whispered in his ear, causing him to shiver. "Oh Linda," She whispered as best she could, "I love it when you're angry! She studied the woman in front of her for a few moments. Bill stood silently watching the smoke issuing from the side of the box but he was also watching and studying the shiny object in its side. " Ally looked at her just a little longer and a little harder than she might otherwise. When I say take your clothes off Allison, I mean take your clothes off, right here and right now! When she finished she pulled it fully open to reveal shapely breasts nestling in a black strapless bra. " Allison's hands were behind her back, she unfastened the bra first time, cupped her breasts and fondled them gently for a few moments and then took hands and bra away to reveal them naked, the nipples proud and erect.This is much lighter than the other two stories and it is told in the third person rather than the first but it sets the scene for what follows. A short black top showing more than a little midriff completed her attire; he looked at her and the immediate area around her with more than a little surprise. She answered the questions in the order they were asked. " She did have a literal mind sometimes, but only when the possession of same was likely to irritate him. " "Well I didn't order anything…" She was looking at him again and she realised the implication. " * Ally hadn't really been aware of leaving the chair, it had been a slide rather than a fall, but she could remember easing a tentative hand under the hem of the dark haired woman's dress and finding soft, smooth and silky skin underneath as she did so. The woman in the black patent pixy boots and the black hose that she now knew to be stockings. They don't want us to see what's actually happening, so they blind us with science - or in this case smoke." Sheila had given up the struggle to stay on tiptoe and seeing that Bandy appeared to be in no immediate danger she had relaxed and settled instead for maintaining a tight grip on her left, mittened, hand. For a few seconds nothing happened but then, as suddenly as it had started, the smoke stopped. " he seemed to come out of his reverie and take notice of her for the first time in some minutes," Oh! "Got a cubicle," she said slowly, "You know, somewhere I can change? " There was no mistaking the lascivious expression on her face, but Ally was not one to turn down a challenge. ' She asked quietly, unbuttoning the cuffs of her blouse as she did so "I don't think we've got time right now, do you? " asked Ally, not taking her eyes away from the doctor's but pulling gently at her blouse to loosen it from her skirt at the same time "And would that involve chains by any chance? Vicki Chaudhari's mouth seemed to fall open just a little, but her voice never wavered. She looked at Vicki for a second and then moved a little closer. He eased himself through the door balancing the cardboard platter in one hand. Something that he very seldom saw and therefore didn't readily recognise. She walked around the box until she was standing close to him. There were no central heating noises to obscure any sounds. She suddenly realised that there was absolutely no dilemma at all and she extended her arms drew the woman hard against her and slipped her tongue into her ear. The dark haired woman sighed and relaxed back onto the bed and the blonde woman, pleased to have the upper hand for once, rolled on top of her. Tried to roll on top of the dark haired woman, but she resisted and pushed her back against the thickly carpeted floor. She looked down at her clothes and then back at Ally. An English, middle class, hippy who went to India and got carried away with it all! Throwing it as wide open as he could, he turned back to face the room and Bandy and spreading his legs slightly and enunciating slowly and clearly, he seemed to fix his eyes on a point somewhere in the middle of the room. The little green men hovering above us in a flying saucer? " She looked again at the small, shiny circular object set into the side of the jet black box, then at the man standing beside her and then at the box again. She peered into the tiny circular hole and saw that it was covered in glass and then she turned and looked back at Bill. Her lips were soft, moist and inviting and he couldn't help but think of other parts of her that were just as soft, just as moist and just as inviting. "Look this is all very well" She ran a hand through her hair to try to smooth it out, "But shouldn't we do this examination while my blood pressure's still fairly low? They had been kissing, amongst other things, for nearly half an hour and she knew that Allison was quite right.He set the coffee and croissants down carefully on the top of the box and looked at her as calmly as he could. The dark haired woman was now on top of her, something she seemed to relish, and then Ally felt gentle fingers sliding up her own thigh and soft breath against her cheek and then, with no warning, a sharp intake of breath. She noticed her short black leather skirt and her leather jerkin worn over a white, puff sleeved blouse, open low enough to show some cleavage and traces of the black strapless bra that she wore underneath. Sensing that Bandy was in no immediate danger, Sheila moved round to join her partner. The leather jerkin was already being placed carefully on the back of the nearest chair. " Said Doctor Chaudhari, folding her arms in front of her, "but maybe another time. Parting her legs slightly, she stood in front of the doctor, unbuttoned and unzipped her short, black leather skirt and let it fall to the floor, to land in a small heap at her ankles. Vicki looked her up and down She was wearing long black stockings, stockings that complimented her long legs and plump, swelling calves and thighs perfectly. Small pert breasts and nipples that were plainly visible and obviously erect. Perhaps spread-eagled would better describe her situation.
The torso was slim and shapely and recognisably feminine. Perhaps lying was not the most accurate description of her current position.
Someone had once described her as "a little terrier". "I want you to stick that in there." He looked at the rear end only a few tantalising inches away from him. * After a quarter of an hour of hard and fairly useless labour they were both sweating. It seemed quicker now and somehow more urgent, whilst the box seemed relentlessly impenetrable. Her plump, large nippled left breast, which, according to her partner, was perfectly symmetrical to her right, although both at that precise moment, looked a little redder and a little more prominent than was normal. Something lying between the woman's outstretched legs. Its surface was actually matt black like the clamps and covered with small knobbly features but right now it gleamed slickly in the overhead lighting.
" * Once Sheila had set her mind to something she never gave up. " It only took a second for her to turn round, still bent over, and head butt him in the stomach, but it took him several minutes to regain his composure. If there IS anyone inside there they'd be held rigid…." She glanced up at him and this time he recognised the look in her eyes. There were two objects like blunt ended alligator clamps but matt black in colour and connected by a silver chain, lying only inches away from her left breast.
Nearly fifty years old and yet as fresh and exquisitely silly as the day it was written, it had subsequently been played so many times since that he had begun to fear for his sanity. He came out of his reverie and moved his head slowly in her direction. " She put her ear to the side of the big wooden box that was the size and shape of a tea chest and listened intently. When she reopened them and looked at him her face was a mask of concern. "Okay." He said and strode purposefully out of the room. The room was quiet again but the sound of breathing seemed to fill the void left by him. " "It's all right, I definitely don't intend to do myself any MORE damage today! Fascinated, he plugged the saw in and crept quietly behind her. It began with a whirring noise, like a small but powerful electric motor and then the seemingly impenetrable lid began to move sideways. " He stood immobile, the lid still sliding forward and the saw buzzing powerlessly away in his hand. It was obvious now that the nails in the lid and the lid itself were no more than dummies because, as it finally slid as far as it would go to the right, it revealed a second lid that was really two halves of good quality sanded and bevelled wood. She paused for a second or two and then she kissed it again and began to trace upwards with her extended tongue, kissing then licking, licking then kissing, until she reached her large soft breasts, where she broke and planted a kiss, first on one nipple and then on the other and then she continued to kiss and lick until she reached her victim's unprotected throat and she kissed some more. " She looked at him for any sign that this was some sort of joke but there was none. " She said derisively, but she took a step away from Bandy and the box as she said it, "If someone wanted to…" At that moment a sharp humming noise became audible and as it grew louder Bandy's whole demeanour seemed to change.
It wasn't fear in her eyes he realised now, but something he had seen much more often and had misinterpreted. Something he had introduced her to by pure accident, or rather, something that he had downloaded because it was no longer available on the High Street and that she had stumbled across one evening. Then one hand began to move slowly forward until it was outstretched in front of him. "Will you stop bloody panting for a minute and let me listen? " She put her face close to the box, laid her palms flat on the surface and closed her eyes as if trying to read it psychically. He in turn looked at her, at the woebegone expression on her face and then at the box and made his decision. Sheila meanwhile had dropped to her knees again and had adopted what appeared to be an attitude of prayer. Just stay in the middle of the box and stay still…" He touched her lightly on the shoulder. The light seemed to fade as he watched, causing even Sheila to look up and then dart towards the light switch but she never made it because as she straightened he switched on the power just as the clock struck eleven and the box suddenly and for no apparent reason came abruptly to life. " He did as he was told and then dropped the saw harmlessly onto the couch. She was leaning over and peering inside when he caught up with her. She reached forward and touched the shiny substance. As silently as she could, she crept forward on bare feet until she was close to the bed and then she reached forward and ran a soft hand gently up her captive's bare thigh. The element of surprise gone, she sat down on the bed feeling the mattress give slightly under her weight and dropped the towel with which she had been drying her hair on to the floor and then she leaned forward and touched the small patch of pubic hair that belonged to her friend and partner and then she bent over and, very gently, kissed her naval. Now I want you to come away from Bandy right now because what you've been touching is a mercury switch and they use mercury switches to make bombs!
It had arms but they were somehow pinioned to its sides. Black and shiny legs that seemed incapable of parting. * Whilst Ally was in the surgery, a few miles due east, in a quiet close adjacent to one of London's smaller parks, a tall woman with long brown and braided hair was lying on a bed in a dimly lit bedroom.
