Hidden Secrets

Hidden Secrets

My heart raced much faster than usual as I nervously approached the uninspiring front door of this nondescript house in suburbia. After having booked my appointment several weeks earlier the countdown was finally over. I casually checked my watch, I was asked to arrive at 9am - not a minute earlier and later. Being a punctual person myself, I appreciated the accuracy of the appointment scheduling.

By Raine Monday

Hokay...so this is the final chapter. I'd love some feedback on what you think should happen "next" for the opening chapter of the next book. I intend to make this a long running series.


Sometime later I awoke to find I was in my suite. My hands were free, bandaged about my wrists, and the other cuts and bruises I’d incurred had also been treated.

Syn and I stood at the doorway as the last of the participants entered into the meeting room. All ten participants were seated in their chairs, glancing at promotional feeds on their tablets. They’d already signed the waivers and the air thrummed with excitement.

Mannie does not hesitate one bit. Each step just makes her that much surer that she is doing the right thing. Of course she is going to transition, and the details aren’t that important in this story. Let’s just say it was a wonderful three years, and then tragedy.

Mary Beth Body Double 1

Cybil was glad to see me again since there was a familiarity between us that only develops with time. This would be the tenth time I had come to Salon Girly Gurl to have my hair done. According to Cybil, customers like me were the reason that the salon was started in the first place. Francesca, owner and founder of Salon Girly Gurl launched the concept to help people like me express themselves. A friendly place to let down our hair and for a while to be the individual we really felt we were.

Manny takes four days to make the trip to his uncle’s ranch. He listens to Sirius-XM most of the way; however, it’s mostly background music. His mind wanders over many things including something Maria, the wife of his uncle’s foreman said to him years before. She had said he was “Two Spirited”. He had done some research and learned what it meant. It bothered him a bit, but then, it didn’t.

Each had something to discover.

The Ambassador's Wife - conclusion

The Ambassador’s Wife – Conclusion.
by
Angharad
I couldn’t believe it, here I was once again in the ambassador’s bedroom being stripped of my clothing by his ravishing wife. Unfortunately, they were her clothes after I’d played her in a decoy to try and draw fire from the embassy in which she was hiding.

“I’ve never seen a young man with so thin a body,” she said assessing me.

“It’s me mum’s fault, all her family are skinny, Ma’am, an’ I s’pose I take after her.”

“Hence you were able to wear my clothes.”

“I don’t know why you can’t dress like a girl. I mean, I’ve never seen you in a dress and you’ve lived next door for five years,” I told Susie, the tomboy that lived next door. She was my sister’s age, two years older than me, and I was starting to notice girls and she was one I noticed. Under her jeans (boys) and loose shirt, there was a good looking body. The only time you could tell was when she put on a swimsuit. “And you should do something with your hair and maybe wear some nail polish or somethin’,” I continued.

“Leave her alone Frank. She can dress how ever she wants. I don’t blame her. I like to wear jeans and sweatshirts too,” my sister defended.

“Yeah, you’re nearly as bad as she is. You only wear dresses sometimes, when there’s some kind of special occasion. You’ve got a drawer full of nice nighties and all you ever wear to bed is flannel pajamas. The only difference between you and Susie is you polish your nails. Susie never wears dresses,” I complained.

“I don’t always wear flannel pajamas.”

“Oh yeah; I forgot. During the summer, you wear Dad’s old T-shirt and Boxers. Real girlie. I’ll bet Susie wears that kind of thing year round.”

Susie whispered something to Karen, who nodded. “I’ll tell you what,” Susie said. “Let’s have a contest. I’ll bet that I can do everything you do and that you can’t do everything I can do. If you win, I’ll wear whatever you say for a whole week and fix my hair all girlie. I’ll even let you go first.”

“What if I lose?”

“Well then,” she grinned, “you’ll have to wear whatever I say all week.”

“What ever we say… I’ll even do it too. And you’ll have to do something with the sorry mop you call hair to make it look better. I don’t know where you get off talking about Susie’s hair. At least she washes hers,” my sister Karen insisted.

Dale was happy to see me. “I’m off in about an hour,” he said. “Want to hang out in my office?”

Ugh, the date. I’d nearly forgotten about it. I wasn’t really interested, well, okay, I was interested but didn’t want to be. Damn, he could fill out a pair of khakis. What was I thinking?

“I’m sorry, something’s come up. And I need to cancel.”

I returned to my suite, stripped out of my clothes and took a very hot shower. I wanted to rid myself of Syn’s stink, and the shame I’d been feeling. I tried to picture the guilt and all of it sluicing down my body and into the drain and was mildly successful.

The Coven

fourgirls.jpgThe Coven
by Anon Allsop

Here is another story I found of mine, so I knocked the dust off of it. She's old, but I think worthy enough to post.

The four girls sat high in the bleachers watching the two men leaning against the fence that separated the fans from the players. Of the girls, one was desperately hurt and enraged at one of the spectators below. The boys were watching the game yelling encouragement to their friends on the team oblivious to what was transpiring a mere twenty feet above their heads.

Crushed, For acting like a Boy

Dennis thought by acting like a boy and messing up his dress clothes, he'd get to stay home and play with friends. He insisted that is what boys like him did. Mom didn't get too angry so he thought he won. Unfortunately every time he acted up he was crushed a little more. Until he began to like it.

The Crush: Patty’s Dilemma

The Crush:
Patty’s Dilemma

By Patricia Marie Allen

God, I just have to realize/accept that I’m not like other girls. All my friends at school are into the jocks, the BMOCs of the school. Not me. As a matter-of-fact, I’m not sure I’m in to guys at all. I mean, I can’t see myself doing all the things that lesbians do with each other, but when my friends talk about what they want to do with the guys they want to be with, I can’t see myself with one of their heartthrobs doing that kind of stuff either. It’s then, while they’re extoling the virtues the manly men they’re crushing on that I wonder if I’m a lesbian.

Michelle Nailed a Job 1

I was very apprehensive when I called my sister Melissa since this is the third time I had asked her for money. She knew I was having a rough time of it, but also very good about not rubbing my nose in it. She had repeatedly tried to warn me about the choices I was making with regards to career, and apartments. Of course, she was right, but being the stubborn male that I am, I could never see her way.

Stacey A French Coquette 1

January 9th, 2014 is a date I was trying very hard to forget. The airline I had been working for as a steward had announced that all of the male stewards are being laid off. It is a result of a couple of my fellow male stewards, that high on drugs, had gone berserk while on a flight. Eighteen passengers were injured, two very seriously when they attacked passengers with knives.

Jessica GGS Pt 3

I arrived at the restaurant and made my way to their table. As I came in Janelle had waved me over and gave me a hug as I walked up. Ditto for Sharon, a much friendlier hug than the first time I met her. She spent several minutes taking in my appearance since she had not seen me yet decked out as a female. I am sure that a photo from the salon had found its way to one of her emails, but actually seeing me in person; this is her first opportunity.

Blair Ann GGS Pt 5

Linda drove us to the fanciest mall in Scottsdale, and we started in the store to store search for anything feminine to try on. She had already told me that we most likely would not buy anything, but we should try on as many clothes as possible. In the first store alone, she had me in fifteen different outfits, including a darling sundress that left nothing to the imagination.

Petra in Ladies Wear 1

Jessie and I have been married all of three months, meeting in our first year of college we ended up sharing an off-campus apartment for several years before we decided that marriage was in our future. Jessie had worked her summer between her junior and senior year at a company offering on the job training for interested parties, with some college credit for the three-month summer break. Well, they liked her work ethic and offered her full-time employment as soon as she graduated.

Charlotte GGS Pt 2

She ended up having to put her hand over my eyes before I closed them. She told me to breathe slowly, keep my eyes closed and let her work her magic. She moved my hands from my breasts and gently rubbed the nipples, caressing them until the nipples were rock hard. Then she leaned down and sucked on them for a few moments, first one then the other. I am in heaven, that feels so good, the tingling seeming to spread throughout my body to every nook and cranny.

Changes in Paradise Chapter 14

CIPLogo.png

Paradise must undergo more modifications and is becoming more comfortable in her new form. Can she find out what nefarious plan CREAM has in store next? Will she be able to save Sarah in time?

Jessica GGS Pt 2

Suffice to say I was soon outfitted as a young business woman in short order. I received all the appropriate lingerie, bra, panties, waist cincher, stockings, and a camisole. Then a pair of four-inch heels with ankle straps, they looked good on me, but I felt my head was in the clouds as I now towered over six feet in my shoes. A gorgeous LBD completed the look, a linen and lace concoction that screamed female. Felicia touched up my makeup, straightened a couple of wisps of hair and pronounced me done.

Mum's Encouragement Chapter 19

Mums Encouragement Chapter 19

After mum hung up I thought I would have a quick lie on my bed to collect my thoughts as I believed I had plenty of time before I would have to call Aunt Julia and ask for her help.

How I don't know but as soon as my head hit the pillow I drifted off into a deep sleep and only woke up to the sound of the front door bell and someone banging on the front door.

It was dark outside and as I awoke I initially thought it was the middle of the night and was worried at who could be knocking on our door at that time.

Charlotte GGS Pt 1

The usual sensual kiss was administered by my lovely wife as she entered the house. Gail is a transformation specialist at the Girly Gurl Salons in town, a job she has enjoyed for the last three years.

“Francesca needs to know if you can spare some time tomorrow to meet with her. She has something she needs to discuss with you.”

Jessica GGS Pt 1

I was counting my tips that night, my station had been cleared, and all my tables were spotless and set up for tomorrow’s business. We had been extremely busy the last few weeks, waiting on our last customers well after the normal closing time. Tonight was no different; we had managed to get the last customer out the door at eleven-thirty, a full two hours after our regular closing time. This included an extra hour as we cleaned up and got ready for tomorrow’s business. I always stayed and helped the girls clean their stations, just what I normally do every night that I work.
