Early Bird Sneak Peek: “Stronger”!

Hi all! It’s time for another Early Bird Sneak Peek, where I share a glimpse at the story my lucky Early Bird patrons will be enjoying next Saturday thanks to their pledges at my Patreon page! Of course, if you’re not an Early Bird patron, you’ll still get a story next week–“I Just Want to See His Face”, teased previously as an Early Bird story, has already been submitted to the EMCSA. But the Early Bird patrons will be getting “Stronger” (MC FF)!

Sasha’s just finished a long, exhausting weightlifting session when a stranger shows up in her basement. She’s not worried, of course. She’s a professional weightlifter, and the other woman is petite and harmless. But as strong as the body is…the mind is always stronger. Here’s a taste:

Sasha tried to brush away the compliment as easily as she brushed away the confusion about the woman’s identity. “Well,” she said dismissively, gesturing half-heartedly at her naked body, “I am strong.” She didn’t feel the need to cover up–a lifetime of practically living at the gym had pretty much gotten rid of any body-shyness she’d ever had. Showering with just one other person in the room was practically a luxury by her standards.

“Oh, you’re definitely strong,” the other woman said, her dark brown eyes glittering with amusement. “But you’ve really been pushing your limits ever since you started doing your workouts online. You saved your biggest lift for the very end, when you were at your most fatigued. Weren’t you a little bit worried that you might not have anything left in the tank for that big clean and jerk?”

Sasha let out a dismissive snort that plumed out warm water from her lips. “I am strong,” she said, a trace of condescension in her voice. As if she needed to be told how to do her routine by a woman who looked like she’d be lucky to lift the bar by itself. She had a spotter every time, she was being safe. The woman from…from the thing…needed to just relax a little.

“Oh, of course you’re strong,” the woman said, coming close enough now that the spray began to dampen the front of her dress. “But the exhaustion is always stronger in the end. No matter how much energy you may have when you start your workout, by the end your muscles are quivering, straining even to hold your body upright after all that hard, tiring exercise.” She still wore that enigmatic smile the whole time she spoke, as if the idea of wearing Sasha out held nothing but delight for her.

Hope you enjoy it!
