To the garden come now
by my hand take me now
or to thy skirt let me cling now
O come now to the garden now upon the bosom of thy beloved throw

The Harem of Delights
Formly Hall, Wonston, Hampshire
Sir Leopold Hawksworth had the good grace to die in his own bed.
He had breathed his last in the early hours of a cold winter morning at the magnificent Formly Hall.
The exact cause of his untimely demise was not divulged.
But Dr Gustav Hauser had checked the pulse of the imposing man and any signs of breathing and had pronounced him deceased at 3 am in his huge antique bed.
"I am afraid Sr Leopold is abgestorben " He informed his wife in a crisp German accent "Dead"
Lady Afari Hawksworth promptly fainted and had to be revived with smelling salts by Nelly the maid.
The majestic Formly Hall suddenly fell very silent.
Lady Afari was already very wealthy when she first met her husband-to-be at the lavish wedding reception of Sir Charles and Petunia Buchanan at the Hotel Café Royal in London some twenty years before.
Sir Leopold Hawksworth was immediately beguiled by the sphinx-like creature and her striking parents.
They were loosely connected to the English rish set and stood out by courtesy of their swarthy looks and exotic pedigree.
The girl with her parents must have been barely nineteen and Sir Leopold Hawksworth watched her every move like a hawk.
"The Hosseini's" Captain Edward Greaves informed him "they're stinking rich and among the Persian elite"
He took a long drag from his cigar.
"Whose the girl?" Hawksworth enquired.
"Afari Hosseini" Greaves replied.
"She's a peach"
"Isn't she just. Apparently, she's had one of those sheltered upbringing's like they do over there"
"Poor little innocent"
Captain Edward Greaves cocked an eyebrow.
But a surge of chivalry was already pulsating through Sir Leopold's veins.
He had suddenly forged a burning desire to rescue the captivating maiden from her prison-like existence.
Hawksworth could picture the wretched girl now, veiled and pining behind a grille.
"I must speak to her!" Sir Leopold Hawksworth declared with conviction.
"You'll have to ask her father's permission first" Greaves warned him "they don't do anything without male approval"
Within moments Sir Leopold had approached the girl's parents.
Captain Edward Greaves shook his head as he observed the scene.
"Damnable foreigners!" He muttered.
The Hosseini's were natives of Tehran.
Mahal Hosseini was a highly influential Persian oil tycoon.
He lived in a palatial residence with his wife Azarin and his only daughter Afari and it was said that he was so rich that he could have bought the whole of Persia itself.
It was Afari Hosseini's first trip to London.
Although she could speak four languages, she had never been out of her country before and it was a completely new experience.
Sir Leopold Hawkworth was 6 ft tall and twenty years older than the object of his affection.
He was extremely good-looking with dancing hazel eyes, sleek black hair and a fine curling moustache.
Sir Leopold Hawksworth was a son of the English aristocracy and a decorated Admiral and lived in inestimable splendour at Formly Hall which had been the family seat for nearly four centuries.
Formly Hall was a magnificent stately home situated in Wonston, Hampshire with seventy-five enormous rooms and surrounded by hundreds of acres of rolling countryside.
The former Admiral was urbane, well travelled and had an eye for beauty.
He had a taste for acquiring exotic artefact's from far-flung places and the mysterious Afari Hosseini was the kind of rare and beautiful objet d'art that he just knew he had to possess.
Sir Leopold Hawksworth had earned his stripes in the Great War and up until now he had been a self-avowed bachelor; dallying with the daughters of the gentry and had a laissez-faire approach to life.
But on this fateful night he was convinced that all that was about to change.
Sir Leopold was extremely charming and took care to ingratiate himself with Mahal Hosseini.
Hosseini was a proud Persian man who listened more than he spoke and when he did speak - he did so in measured doses.
"My daughter is a good girl!" He informed Sir Leopold in a heavily accented voice.
Afari Hosseini smiled and lowered her eyes.
"She is very artistic" her father added mysteriously.
Afari Hosseini kept her eyes averted but there was a little smile upon her face.
The girl was dressed in a white satin gown, a necklace of priceless jewels glittered about her neck and her thick black hair piled high above her head.
She had totally eclipsed the bride.
When he was sure that he had won the trust of Mahal and Azarin Hosseini, Sir Leopold Hawksworth introduced himself to their daughter.
He was struck by how childlike she appeared with her wide eyes and vulnerable air.
"Poor little innocent" Sir Leopold sighed to himself.
She must have led a cloistered existence in Tehran; locked away from prying eyes and the rude stare of the sun.
"Women are like jewels that should guarded against the covetous gaze of men" Mahal Hosseini informed Sir Leopold Hawksworth
The former Admiral was also partial to the Arthurian legends and he was quite sure that he was about to rescue this delectable creature from her prison like existence.
Sir Leopold was fascinated by the air of mystery that surrounded the young girl but there was also something else going on behind her sultry almond shaped black eyes.
Afari Hosseini was olive-skinned and petite.
She had large slanting black eyes and glossy black hair and moved gracefully like flowing water.
Afari Hosseini was Cleopatra come alive.
Her curious accent and pretty laugh sent shivers down Sir Leopold Hawkworth's spine.
The former Admiral regaled her with colourful tales about his travels and of his vast collection of artefact's from around the world.
"I have never been further then our gardens" Afari Hosseini informed him with wide eyes.
"Good Lord, she is no more than a child"
Sir Leopold Hawksworth was suddenly rendered speechless as his shock was mingled with pity for the captivating creature.
His mind was full of visions of Afari Hosseini imprisoned in a high walled tower by cruel khalif's.
"Poor little innocent" Sir Leopold Hawksworth repeated to himself.
She was a Persian Princess.
Hawksworth could picture her walking gracefully through the grounds of Formly Hall with a flower in her raven hair.
He felt his member stirring and he suddenly felt guilty.
Afari Hosseini was an innocent.
How could he entertain such vulgar yearnings?
Her father was a shrewd man.
Mahal Hosseini was wise to Sir Leopold's intentions.
|Nayika (by Yatindra deviantart.com)|
Then he laughed.
Mahal Hosseini had been whispering instructions in his daughter's ear about how to conduct herself with the former Admiral and she dutifully obeyed them.
Sir Leopold was completely captivated.
The day before the Hosseini's were due to return to their country, Sir Leopold Hawksworth went down on one knee to propose to Afari in the foyer of the Hilton Hotel.
Her father nodded for her to agree and the young girl avidly complied.
"You made me the happiest man alive!" Sir Leopold cried as he placed a diamond and ruby ring upon her slender finger.
Mahal and Azarin Hosseini were looking proudly o.
Their daughter had made a perfect match.
And they expected Sir Leopold to keep their daughter in the manner to which she was accustomed.
Mahal gave a knowing smile.
"She is such a little innocent" he sighed.
There was an unmistakable gleam in Azarin's black eyes.
There were ill-concealed expressions of shock and horror when Sir Leopold Hawksworth bought Afari Hosseini to Hampshire to be his wife.
The English aristocracy were scandalised by the appearance of the exotic female on the arm of the strapping former Admiral and alarm rippled through the ranks.
The wedding proceeded promptly with a majestic ceremony at Winchester Cathedral and a lavish reception at Arundel Castle which was attended by King George V and his Queen consort, Mary of Tek
Polite society were outraged by Sir Leopold Hawksworth's choice of bride.
But the media were in a frenzy.
King George and Queen Mary watched Lord Hawksworth marry a dusky maiden from Persia at Winchester Cathedral today. It was a thoroughly English affair even if the bride and her party are from the Orient.
Not only was the new Lady Hawksworth unutterably foreign but apparently she wasn't even a Christian.
The chattering classes could barely bring themselves to say it out loud; but Sir Leopold had deigned to marry a "Mohammedan".
"A heathen from the barbarous east"
And there were even rumours that Mahal Hosseini had actually sold his daughter to the former Admiral and that the bride and groom had attended a "pagan Moslem ritual" before the ceremony at Winchester Cathedral.
Lady Hilda Gladstone was one of the appalled women who objected to Sir Leopold's choice of bride and she was determined to transform her into a respectable English woman of substance.
The self-righteous matron regarded herself as Lady Afari Hawksworth's moral guardian.
"My wife is a little innocent" Sir Leopold informed her.
"And she is little more than a child!" Lady Hilda declared "I will see to it that she remains untainted by the evils of the world!"
"I am most beholden to you"
"Those swarthy idolaters with their big manly chests and their big hands ... and their big ..."
Lady Hilda Gladstone was quivering and fanning herself as she sauntered out.
Sir Leopold vetoed the older woman's Tuesday afternoon visits which were an occasion for religious instruction and the tutoring of refined English sensibilities.
The former Admiral had introduced his new wife to his love of rare artifact's and he had taken her along to Sotheby's in London.
Lady Afari was fascinated by the grand auction house and became a frequent visitor.
She immediately became obsessed with acquiring recherché pieces
Sir Leopold assigned a special room for his wife's collection.
He never questioned his wife and her purchases remained locked away.
It was her sanctuary but one day he ventured into the secret room and was flabbergasted by what he found.
His inscrutable young wife had evidently acquired a fascination for erotica and she had obtained quite a sizable aggregation of rare, erotic Indo-Persian and Mughal miniatures.
The images explicitly depicted couples in various states of flagrante delicto.
"Good grief!" Sir Leopold Hawksworth cried.
He was struggling to reconcile his "innocent flower" with the risqué collection.
Mahal Hosseini's words were ringing in his ears.
"She is very artistic"
His palms were sweaty as he locked the door behind him.
The door to his wife's secret pleasure.
Francis Marie Hawksworth soon followed and the little family was complete.
One afternoon, Lady Hilda was having tea in the huge drawing room when she suddenly noticed something that almost made her drop her china cup.
"Good Lord!" She cried.
There was an ornately carved ivory table with a circle of naked nymphs writhing suggestively around it's elegant legs.
The sight of bare breasts and female private parts soon had the older woman fanning herself with a silk handkerchief.
"The fruit of your heathen upbringing!" Lady Hilda Gladstone informed her host.
Lady Afari Hawksworth smiled sweetly.
"More tea, dear?" She enquired.
Lady Hilda Gladstone set about tutoring her young pupil with gusto.
Very soon even Lady Afari's most ardent detractors were galvanised by the way she appeared to have been transformed into a bastion of the British Empire.
In fact, she was now more English than they were.
And she attended church every Sunday.
Lady Hilda Gladstone had excelled herself and she was supremely triumphant.
Another foreigner had been subdued and the possible invasion of the British Isle's by swarthy savages had been averted.
Those were halcyon days and they were a memory now.
Lady Afari Hawksworth had been relaxing with her female friends in the enormous drawing room when news of her husband's passing was bought to her by a manservant.
She promptly fainted and had to be revived with smelling salts by Nelly, the maid.
Her daughter burst into harsh sobs.
And as Francis Marie clung to her mother, Lady Afari suddenly felt very alone in the huge residence.
The teenager had just lost her best friend and mentor.
Francis Marie was dark like her mother but had her father's sparkling hazel eyes and witty smile.
She was already very pretty and was just becoming aware of her feminine powers.
The funeral of Sir Leopold Hawksworth was as grand as his gesture's had been.
Winchester Cathedral was full of mourners that wet Friday afternoon.
King George and his Queen consort Mary of Tek had sent sincere condolences on remembrance of a man "who was more of a friend than a friend could be".
Sir Leopold had been a popular figure and the public were genuinely grieved at his passing.
Lady Afari looked wan in her widows crape, elegant hat and veil as Francis Marie somberly accompanied her mother in black satin.
Camera's flashed wildly as mother and daughter followed the coffin into the cathedral.
As if in anticipation of the sad day, the sky remained overcast and by the time Sir Leopold Hawksworth had been interned in the imposing family vault it was already lashing down with rain.
A splendid reception followed the funeral at Formly Hall in honour of Sir Leopold.
No expense had been spared and a fine spread had been laid out for the great company of mourners.
Lady Afari sat beside Lady Evelyn Squires.
The insufferable woman had been regaling the new widow about her own husband's passing ten years before.
Apparently, Captain Guilbert Gladstone had gone down with his ship and "drowned in the bitter Atlantic ocean".
"They never found his cadaver!" Lady Evelyn sniffed as she wiped away a tear.
She was homely, short and plump with greying auburn hair and pale blue eyes.
"What are you going to do in a big residence like this all on your own?" She asked Lady Afari after she had sufficiently recovered.
The widow fixed Lady Evelyn with her most sincere gaze.
"I will sew smocks for the poor and make raspberry jam for the church" she replied.
"Oh, how wonderful of you my dear!"
"Every new day is a good day if lived for the Lord" Lady Afari Hawksworth informed the prying older woman piously before gliding gracefully away.
"Such a dear soul!" Lady Evelyn Squires sighed.
"One can't help but admire her" Lady Rose Attlee declared beside her.
"She's very brave".
"And still such an innocent creature"
"All her beauty will go to waste" Lady Evelyn Squires declared dramatically as she took a sip of tea.
Both women watched Lady Afari as she mingled among the mourners.
"Life can be so cruel!" Lady Rose Attlee pronounced.
Attlee was a thin, nervy woman with grey hair and piercing green eyes.
"Poor Lady Afari" She added "still an innocent"
She was destined to spend the rest of her days in genteel resplendence as she dedicated her life to doing good deeds for charity.
A virgin again.
The two older women sighed together.
Lady Afari sat demurely beside Lady Hilda Gladstone.
Nobody had noticed that the newly widowed woman had been quietly surveying the most eligible men among the mourners.
And silently sizing them up from beneath her veil.
Lady Afari kept her eyes modestly lowered as she made a mental note of all the most delectable men.
It suddenly felt as if she were meeting them all for the first time.
The charming ones, the unfaithful ones, the promising ones, the desirable ones ...
Lady Afari had a little smile upon her face as she observed her daughter.
Francis Marie had captivated a handsome young man by the fireplace and he looked smitten.
Lady Afari had indeed taught her daughter well.
"Poor little innocent!" Lady Hilda Gladstone cried as she patted Lady Afari's hand.
Then she prattled on about her late husband Gasper and how her Oxford educated son had emigrated to Australia.
But Lady Afari Hawksworth was already distracted by the sight of a taught male bottom.
She licked her lips.
Lady Hilda continued to recount her tragic tale until she was stopped in mid flow by the sight of a very good-looking young man kneeling at Lady Afari's feet.
He was clutching his hat to his chest.
"Good Lord!" The older woman gasped.
The young man was very good looking with wavy brown hair and crisp green eyes and could barely be in his twenties.
"Lady Afari!" He declared "If there is anything I can do, please let me know!"
To all intents and purposes he was Sir Lancelot pledging his devotion to Guinevere.
Lady Afari's eyes had lit up.
"What is your name?" She asked him.
"Samson" he answered "Samson Lockhart"
"Ah, yes. Son of Sir Theodore. Lately of Friar Grange"
The young man nodded eagerly.
Now she remembered.
Only yesterday he was just a toddler running about.
Who would have thought that he would grow into such a strapping young man?
Lady Hilda Gladstone had been stunned into silence.
"I'm sure I can find something for you to do" Lady Afari grinned.
Samson Lockhart sprang to his feet and bounded out of the huge drawing room while his new mistress devoured him with her sultry black eyes.
|Sun Temple Detail 6 (by Yatindra deviantart.com)|
"The boy behaved as if you were the Queen of Sheba!" She informed Lady Afari in a tremulous voice.
Mother and daughter placed a bouquet of roses at the foot of Sir Leopold's tomb and after some quiet moments alone with him they emerged into the daylight again.
This ritual was undertaken every week and the media soon heard of it and filled their newspapers with captions declaring the're tragic plight.
Sad Lady Afari and her daughter emerge from the family vault after leaving a dozen red roses. The world was stunned by the sudden death of Sir Leopold two months ago leaving his dusky wife a widow and his daughter fatherless. "We will carry Leo in our hearts" Lady Afari declared shortly after the funeral.
Pictures of Lady Afari visiting orphanages and pledging money donations to charities soon filled the dailies.
And it so it seemed that the beautiful widow had consigned herself to a quiet country life.
Then late one morning she had an unexpected visitor.
Lady Afari was delighted when the butler ushered in young Samson Lockhart into the large drawing room.
She was just taking her tea when the handsome young man strode purposefully in.
"What a pleasant surprise!" Lady Afari declared as she rose from her seat.
Samson Lockhart took off his hat and kissed her hand with a flourish.
"I have come to offer my services to you!" Lockhart informed her.
She suddenly noticed how taught his chest was beneath the tweed jacket and how vulgar the cleft was in his chin.
"What do you like to do?" Lady Afari asked him.
The question hung in the air.
"Do you like to ride?" She added.
Then she smiled.
Francis Marie returned to Formly Hall later that afternoon and enquired after her mother.
"She's down at the stable's with Sir Lockhart ma'am" Nelly, the maid informed her.
By the time Francis Marie reached the stables, her mother and Samson Lockhart were just trotting in on their white stallions.
Lady Afari greeted her daughter with a warm smile.
"I've been riding him all afternoon" she informed her.
Samson Lockhart flashed Francis Marie with a broad grin.
Several weeks later and Lady Afari was entertaining Lady Hilda Gladstone to their customary tea in the large drawing room.
"I see that young Samson has made himself utterly indispensable to you" Lady Hilda Gladstone observed as she sipped her tea.
Nothing appeared to escape her.
"His performance is most satisfactory" Lady Hawksworth replied with a smile.
Nelly the maid appeared at the door.
She was tiny and fair-haired with blue eyes and quick movements.
"Sorry to interrupt you ma'am, but Count Yefimov has arrived" Nelly announced.
Lady Hilda's eyes widened with surprise.
"You remember Count Yefimov? Maxim Yefimov, friend of the Romanov's?"
The older women had been rendered speechless.
"Please show our Russian friend in, Nelly"
Within moments a strapping man had bounded into the drawing room.
"Greetings and felicitations!" Count Maxim Yefimov addressed the two women.
Lady Hilda Gladstone had suddenly become rather flustered.
Count Maxim doffed his cap with a flourish.
"Might I introduce Lady Gladstone" Lady Afari gestured.
"Au chante!" Count Yefimov cried as he bent low and kissed Lady Hilda Gladstone's hand.
The older woman blushed violently.
Count Maxim Yefimov was 6 ft tall and well set with wavy black hair, brown eyes and distinguishably handsome features.
"The Count has come to view my private collection" Lady Afari Hawksworth informed Lady Gladstone.
The older woman got the hint.
She quickly rose from her seat.
"Well ... it's been nice to meet you" Lady Hilda declared in a tremulous little voice.
"I can assure you that the pleasure is all mine" Count Maxim Yefimov assured her with a smile.
Lady Hilda Gladstone began to fan herself.
Then she quickly hurried out of the large drawing room.
Lady Afari Hawksworth maintained the status of a dignified widow.
Even though a steady stream of men appeared to be passing through her private sanctuary at Formly Hall.
Some of the men were married and others were eligible bachelors.
Nelly the maid and Edward the butler, were both given strict instructions not to disturb their mistress when she was "entertaining" a male guest in the secret room.
The sight of attractive men entering and leaving Formly Hall several hours later soon became an almost daily occurrence.
One disgruntled wife had convinced herself that her husband was conducting a liaison with Lady Afari Hawksworth.
On a windy winter's day, she appeared at Formly Hall without announcement.
Lady Penelope Cholmsley had been married to her husband for twenty-five years and they had settled into a humdrum domesticity at Chester House.
She was a nervy and slight redhead with clear blue eyes and a thin red mouth.
Ignoring the imploring maid, Lady Penelope pushed her way past.
"Come out, Finian Cholmsley!" Lady Cholmsley yelled as she pounded on the door of the locked room with her fists "I know you're in there with her!"
There was no answer.
"Come out you hussy!" Lady Hilda added forcefully.
After several long moments the door finally opened.
Lady Afari Hawksworth expressed mortification at the combative woman.
"What can the matter be, my dear?"
Lady Penelope strode determinedly in.
"Where is he?" She demanded loudly.
Then her hand suddenly flew to her mouth as she stared at the countless erotic paintings on the wall and erotic Indian sculptures.
They were everywhere.
Lady Penelope Cholmsley had never seen so many vaginas and penises before.
She was filled with horror.
"Lurid images depicting human animals mating!" Lady Penelope exclaimed with disgust "The fruit of your unbridled sensuality!"
"What could you possibly be referring to?" Lady Afari replied innocently.
It was then that Lady Penelope noticed the unfamiliar man observing them from the chaise longue.
He was attractive with chestnut hair and hazel eyes.
Suddenly Lady Penelope Cholmsely noticed that he was sitting beneath an explicit Indo-Persian miniature of a couple enthusiastically engaging in fellatio.
She gasped at the depiction of a large erect penis.
The man appeared to be holding a wad of letters in his big hands.
"Sir Ralf Sadler of Ravenlea Manor" Lady Afari informed Lady Penelope Cholmsley.
The man cocked an eyebrow.
Then he grinned at her showing sharp white teeth.
Lady Penelope's bravado had suddenly deserted her.
"He does me the kindness of reading my late husband's letters to me" Lady Afari Hawksworth explained "Listening to a male voice read those words brings my Leopold back to life ... like Lazarus"
The widow gave out a long sigh.
Lady Penelope suddenly felt ashamed of herself.
"Only the good Lord knows my grief" Lady Afari added sadly.
"But where is my Finian?" Lady Penelope wailed.
"After inspecting my collection he went riding with my daughter" Lady Afari answered "I'm sure they'll be back shortly"
Lady Penelope felt crestfallen.
Lady Afari Hawksworth was smiling benevolently at her.
"Please forgive me .., I'm so sorry to intrude like this ... please accept my sincere apologies" Lady Cholmsley stuttered.
She was inwardly chiding herself for being so hysterical.
Sir Ralf Sadler grinned at her and patted a place beside him on the chaise longue.
Lady Penelope Cholmsely noticed how muscular his big legs were.
She quickly turned on her heels and hurried out of the room.
Lady Penelope never heard the giggling in her wake.
She went home a changed woman.
And Lady Penelope Cholmsley never questioned her husband again.
Lady Afari Hawksworth continued to attend to her charitable pursuits and to take her illuminating class with Lady Hilda Gladstone.
|Yama (by Yatindra deviantart.com)|
"Mr Grey and Master Samson are keeping me occupied these days" Lady Afari informed Lady Hilda Gladstone with a smile.
The older woman's eyes widened over the rim of her china cup.
"Mr Grey is teaching me new things" Lady Afari added sweetly.
One Year Later
At a lavish dinner party at Formly Hall one autumn evening, Lady Afari Hawksworth looked about her and struggled to find one man she hadn't "entertained" in her secret sanctuary.
Then she noticed an unfamiliar man at a far end of the huge table.
He was unmistakably good looking.
"Sir Rufus Delamere" Francis Marie informed her mother "a friend of daddy's. Of French stock and frightfully upper-class"
"He's very striking"
Sir Rufus Delamere was suave and handsome with chiselled features, sleek black hair and glittering hazel eyes.
He flashed his hostess a broad grin.
And a shiver ran down her spine.
"I think he'll do nicely" Lady Afari declared.
By the end of the evening, the couple had become inseparable and Lady Hilda Gladstone was watching their every move like a hawk.
Several weeks later, Sir Rufus Delamere publicly announced his engagement to Lady Afari Hawksworth and the media went into overdrive.
The couple were pictured walking through the grounds of Formly Hall and the glittering emerald and sapphire engagement ring was front page news.
Later they became the main attraction at Royal Ascot.
Sir Rufus Delamere looked dapper as he accompanied his intended to Royal Ascot. Lady Afari was radiant in a blue satin gown by Coco Chanel and an elegant Sally Milgrim hat. All eyes were upon the dazzling couple as they avidly followed the races beside Prince George. The wedding promises to be the big event of 1924 and the marriage ceremony is fêted to be conducted at Westminster Abbey.
But one woman was not convinced about the happy couple.
Lady Hilda Gladstone had been closely observing Lady Afari for some time.
And as her impending marriage approached, Lady Hilda decided to act.
She decided to approach Sir Rufus Delamere with her suspicions.
It was her duty.
The besotted man expressed complete disbelief at the allegations.
"Lady Afari is the purist soul I have ever met!" He cried.
Lady Gladstone was very persistent, insisting that he desist from seeing Lady Afari lest she "seduce you with her silky lies".
She was also pictured dining alone at the Ritz.
The media quickly began to depict Lady Afari Hawksworth as a tragic woman doomed to live alone for the rest of her days.
"You have ruined my life!" She informed Lady Hilda Gladstone.
"I am your moral guardian and it is my duty to protect your good name and reputation!" Lady Hilda replied loftily with her head held high.
The large drawing room had fallen silent and the tea was getting cold.
"Then you'll agree to refrain from visiting me" Lady Afari announced "if you have entertained such dark insinuations about me then I suggest we part company"
Lady Hilda Gladstone was rendered speechless.
There was a chill in the air.
"If that is how you feel ..."
"The men you refer to so blithely have been half a balm to me in my hour of need"
"Please let me explain Lady Afari!"
"You have disgraced me and you are no longer welcome in my home" Lady Afari Hawksworth pronounced icily "Now, would you kindly leave!"
Three Months Later
Lady Hilda Gladstone had decided to pay Lady Hawksworth an unexpected visit.
In a spirit of reconciliation she had even bought a homemade ginger cake with her.
She had been sufficiently chastised and desired to make amends.
"Lady Hawksworth is entertaining Prince Carlos" Nelly the maid informed the older woman at the door.
"Please, would you kindly give her my gift" Lady Hilda informed her, handing her the cake.
"Yes, ma'am" Nelly replied obediently.
And with that, Lady Hilda Gladstone departed.
She knew better than to question Lady Afari Hawksworth.
And Lady Hilda was confidant that they would shortly be rekindling their friendship and sipping tea together in the large drawing room.
It would soon be like the old days again.
As if nothing untoward had ever occurred between them.
In the secret locked room, Prince Carlos of Spain was lying naked on the chaise longue.
He was swarthy and handsome with curly black hair, piercing black eyes and a hairy muscled body,
The couple had met at a polo match the day before.
And Lady Afari Hawksworth was impressed by his performance and the way he rode his horse and she was confident that he would show his expertise in other areas too.
She had already regaled him with sultry tales of her escapades with the Spanish manservant at her home in Tehran as a teenager.
The Persian beauty had even explained how her late husband had died.
"In the act of love" she sighed.
Now Prince Carlos was showing himself eager to satisfy her every desire.
She had seen him ride.
She knew what he could do.
"Delicious" Lady Afari sighed as she slowly surveyed his naked body.
She ran her finger along his hairy muscled chest all the way down to his fulsome member.
And then she slowly undressed beneath a mughal miniature of a couple fornicating on an oriental rug,
Lady Afari had assured Prince Carlos of Spain that they would not be disturbed.
Her daughter was otherwise indisposed.
"Screwing Master Samson in her room" she assured her lover.
Prince Carlos was grinning broadly and anticipating the sexual gymnastics to come.
This was going to be a fuck to remember.
"I think we'll take our time today" Lady Afari Hawksworth purred.
