We had the opportunity to go to listen to Doc's band play last night. The place was packed, I had a wonderful time people watching. The music was great, but no one was dancing which was a little disappointing as I really wanted to dance.
Musicman and I were discussing the song selection, he often plays with Doc, but won't play in the band with him. He doesn't like to be the center of attention. Musicman said he wanted them to play "our" song, but he didn't think they would.
When the band took a break I spoke to Doc and explained it was our anniversary and asked him if they would play our song. The song by the way is "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton. It is the one song guaranteed to get Musicman to dance with me.
At the beginning of the next set Doc announced to the audience that it was our anniversary and that the next song was for us, color me surprised as I didn't ask him to do all that. I was even more surprised when Musicman grabbed my hand and practically dragged me to the dance floor.
We were the only ones dancing, and it totally melted me on the spot that he would do that. Musicman is not one for public displays of affection and really doesn't like to dance, so I hadn't considered that he would want to.
We eloped, planned the whole thing in a week, the reception was really a picnic planned and prepared by Musicman's family, so we never had a wedding dance. It took 26 years, but it feels like I finally got my dance.
We left soon after as we both were ready to go home and move on to the sexy stuff. There was all kinds of sexy stuff and a great time was had by all. I think the best thing was the great conversation we had before the sexy stuff.
I now understand better why Musicman has been hesitant to embrace D/s. He talked quite a bit about some of the stuff he would want to try. He didn't think I would want to try that stuff. I must admit that if he had told me this stuff prior to me embracing D/s I would have said no. Now though, even though some of it is not anything I thought I would be interested in, just listening to him say it was a huge turn on.
I don't think it was so much that I want to try this stuff that I found so exciting. The idea of doing it for him was incredibly exciting to me though. We talked about how he would need to make sure I was in a good sub headspace for it to work. We also talked some more about some things I would like to try and how to go about accomplishing that too. He even mentioned the fact that he has the perfect piece of wood he has been considering making a paddle out of.
I'm a very happy faerie at the moment and quite excited with what the future might hold.
