Early Bird Sneak Peek: “Easy to Ignore”!

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–“Candy Coated”, teased previously as an Early Bird story, has already been submitted to the EMCSA. But the Early Bird patrons will be getting “Easy to Ignore” (MC MF FD)!

Bryce is trying to study, but the other occupant of the library alcove has a very distracting fidget spinner. It’s hard to look away from it… at least, that’s how Bryce feels. The woman with the spinner turns out to have a very different view, and she’s happy to explain to Bryce exactly how to focus his attention on other things. Like her, for instance… here’s a taste.

The girl smiled enigmatically, her fingers twirling the lobes of the fidget spinner with practiced ease. “I’m sure it won’t come to that,” she cooed, her deep brown eyes refusing to give away even a hint of compromise. “Now, the trick is to get used to focusing your attention on something else. Once your mind is properly focused, you’ll find that the spinner becomes less and less important, less and less distracting. Until you don’t even think about it at all. We’ll start by having you look directly at the spinning mirrors… that’s it, good job… while you concentrate on the sound of my voice.”

It was a nice voice, Bryce had to admit. She was speaking in low, breathy tones, saying, “Try to pay attention to the way that the words come out of my mouth, letting your eyes follow the spinning lobes while your mind begins to tune everything out but the soft, gentle sound of my voice,” in a way that perfectly straddled the line between seductive and soothing. Not that he was thinking about her like that, because it would be very rude to spend all his study time sneaking glances at a pretty girl who was probably doing some very important classwork and didn’t deserve to have some stranger covertly ogling her body, but… he had noticed her. And she was very pretty.

It was probably just his overactive hormones that made him read anything else into it. When she said, “Don’t worry about the details of what I’m saying, just listen to my voice and focus on the way it makes you feel relaxed and peaceful,” she was only being helpful, that was all. Her voice took on a soft, husky purr as she said, “The more you stare at the spinning, dancing lights that catch and captivate your eyes, the less you notice them and the more attention you pay to the warm, sweet sound of my voice as it guides you further and further into calm, blissful comfort,” but Bryce was sure she was only trying to put him at ease.

Hope you enjoy it!
