Now as you guys probably know, MMM is all about the sharing. See, even the acronym fits in with sharing and menages. And today, I'm feeling extra generous about sharing the love. So guess what, I'm going to give you a glimpse into Three Rings and a Rose. I hope you all enjoy!
When Ella had agreed to play Truth or Dare with her three closest girlfriends, she hadn’t signed up for this. She hadn’t expected for them to deliver their dare immediately nor had she expected for it to be easy. It was almost too easy.
“You want me to go in Pretty Petals and retrieve a flower pot for Penelope? That is my dare?” Ella inquired, completely shocked by the recent turn of events. She eyeballed the brightly lit storefront of the flower shop the Portman sisters—Penelope and Piper—owned. “Don’t you think that is a little too…simple? We’re supposed to be playing a life-altering game. I was expecting something more…I don’t know, crazy, challenging, kooky, or something.”
Beside her, Shannon shook her head. “Nope. We decided to go easy on you.
Ella snorted. “I don’t like easy. I like everything like fucking—hard and fast. Besides, I think you’re full of shit. You three would never go easy on me. You’re up to something.”
Shannon gasped dramatically then threw her head back. Touching her chest, she feigned far too-transparent indignation. “How could you accuse me of something like that? I’m a good girl.”
“Yeah right, and I own a toy store filled with G-rated movies, educational books about playing, malleable mini-bats, childproof outlet plugs, and blowable bubbles.” She rolled her eyes. “Who needs porn, sex manuals, dildos, butt plugs, or lube in Serenity?”
Sticking her tongue out, Shannon otherwise ignored her acerbic response. “Just remember that all you have to do is get the purple ceramic pot with the white Forget-me-not flower hand-painted on it and bring it to me. But you have to find it and hand it directly to me. If you walk out that door without it, you lose.”
“I know. I know. I know,” Ella groused. “You’ve told me at least ten times. I think I have it.”
Shannon grinned. “Fine then, go on in. Nothing in the store will bite you.”
“That’s not what I’m afraid of,” Ella muttered under her breath. She really wasn’t worried about that. But something didn’t feel right about this situation. On one hand, Ella figured they had stashed something or someone inside the store, yet that couldn’t be it. She could see inside the store, and it was empty. However, she didn’t trust the girls when it came to this game and matchmaking.
Shannon opened the door for her and then shoved her inside. “I’ll wait out here,” she announced through the glass. “You take your time and find what you…need.”
Ella frowned. She didn’t like the way that Shannon had said “need.” The drawn-out pronunciation made her squirm, and she wanted to curse. Either she was being silly and suspicious or she was right on target. But she didn’t know. And there was only one way she could find out.
Love and cherries,
