Quinn has a surprise planned for New Year's Eve. He's kept the invitation to an exclusive supper club a secret until Monica finds herself in a lingerie boutique trying on options for her evening attire. Confusion, fear, and excitement stir inside as she tries to settle into the idea of this test to her insecurities and arousal.
Don't worry, Monica comes up with some surprises for Quinn too, including what she's going to choose to wear for herself.
(from chapter "December 31 - Saturday")
Lingerie shopping is something Monica usually dreads, depending on her weight fluctuations. It’s a pleasant shock when the first hangers holding a bra and panty set fit perfectly. The plunge style top in wide black lace is softer than she ever thought lace could be. It has no wires or lining, nor any real support, but it does look elegant in detail. Too extravagant for an undergarment. Monica keeps gliding her fingers down her breast amazed. There are half circles of peacock blue satin sewn in to partially hide the nipples, while the panties fit high and wide on her hips the way she likes. Of course, right now they’re squeezed over her cotton panties which isn’t comfortable or flattering, but on their own, they’d make her feel daring and exotic.
“I’m right here,” he says just outside.
“So what do I wear over this?” There’s a silence as she looks at herself again. “What kind of dinner is this?”
“A very delicious one. So I’ve heard.”
“You’ve never been there?”
“People wear lingerie to eat?” She softens her voice. “Is this a swingers thing or-”
“No, it’s just a sensual dinner. Can I see what you’ve tried on?”
Monica cracks the door. “That’s not really acceptable in places like this.” She looks around but only sees Quinn.
“He can go in there with you dear. We are all adults,” the woman says from behind a wall.
Monica lets Quinn push the door open, but immediately starts covering her torso in shyness.
“Don’t you dare cover that up.” His dominant tone is familiar. Flashes of his hand slapping her ass quicken her pulse. He steps closer and removes her hands from her stomach. Once her hands are at her side he softly releases and steps back.
“Lovely dear,” the woman says emerging from behind a rack in the distance. “It’s full coverage and elegant.”
“I usually think of full coverage as in...” Monica motions to her stomach area. “Full coverage.”
She smiles. “The gentleman said you were modest. The other items may suit you better then.”
Monica looks at his smirk. “A naughty dinner huh?” she says.
“I’ve heard the food is amazing.”
“I bet.” She presses her lips together taking in the idea. “I suppose you get to wear a suit or something layered and warm like that?”
“I was thinking that would be appropriate, but I’ll wear whatever you want.”
Monica turns towards the mirror and closes the door behind her, barely missing Quinn, still leaning there.
“It’s okay,” he says, amused.
