Bedtime Story

Sorry this is late. I've had technical problems like you wouldn't believe.

Last time I read I was told my voice was suitable for reading children's stories so I thought it might be fun to read something adult in my children's-story voice. Robin kindly supplied the material. She has links to all the other people who are reading this time and they are unmissable.

CONTENT ADVISORY

This is an adult story about two people making love, in other words a sex scene. I won't be offended if you choose not to listen to it.

I really enjoyed reading that and I felt like I was getting to know the main character. Thank you, Robin!

Wow, FH, I have wonderful chills from listening to you read this passage. Your reading was gorgeous!

I'm putting a post up with this link so people know to come and listen.

Thank you so much for doing this!

This is such a spectacular fusion — and as I listened to it, your little hamster ran round in his wheel in the corner of my eye.

Surreal!

And quite wonderful.

I'm now eating fish & chips while taking a cold shower . . . which, surprisingly, isn't as bad as it sounds.

Phoenix said...

Exquisite - both the read and the write!

sylvia said...

Oh, I can't wait to listen to this! But I suspect with two 14-year-olds in the next room, I better hold of another hour or so.

I'm adding you to the list now!

sylvia said...

hold off, not of. You've got me all in a dither ;)

I swear I've heard this on Woman's Hour.

McKoala said...

You have such a beautiful voice. Thought EE would like this one!

BBJD said...

Oh, my goodness! I am quite glad I waited for Son to be upstairs before listening to this.

Robin wrote this? Excellent, Robin.

A fantastic read, FH. You have such a beautiful voice. Not sure if I dare let Spouse listen or not.

Wonderful read FH. Love your voice.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments.

BBJD: my husband listened to it with me (after I'd recorded it or I'd have been too self-conscious). So now he knows what I get up to on the internet!

I just played it for Spouse. The response was - smiles. Not sure what to make of that. At least the passwords aren't being changed so I can no longer access the internet.

. . . Which is why I'm waiting until I get back to Chicago to listen to it. : )

fairyhedgehog said...

Good call, Freddie.

Smiles are good, BBJD. I think.

FH - this was wonderful. An amazing fusion of your heavenly voice and Robin's gorgeously sexy writing.

I love that you started it with the "listen with mother" intro. Believe me I could not have listened to anything like this with my mother! HA!

sylvia said...

This was so intriguing - I found myself shifting gears quite abruptly as my mind combined the steamy sex scene with Listen with Mother and your cool voice.

Excellent!

pacatrue said...

It's odd listening to this after all the sexily-read instructions and medicinal warnings. I kept expecting you to mention an odd chemical or item number, but it actually involved sex!

Lovely voice as ever, fhh!

pjd said...

My problem is that when I listen to your voice, I stop hearing the words. I do so love your voice.

Robin S. said...

This was a delight to listen to, FH.

We need to pair up again, sometime - this was a lovely idea you had.

fairyhedgehog said...

You folks are going to turn my head but thank you, all of you.

I'm glad some of you spotted the Watch with Mother allusion. Does that bring back memories of childhood or what? Although I'm pretty sure Robin's story wouldn't have featured. We were all so uptight in those days; this was pre Lady Chatterley.

Oh, and I'd love to team up again some time Robin. This was wonderful writing.
