Soon, your love will be home from work and will be expecting his/her meal ready on the table once they walk in. It has been a long day of work for them and you want to do everything in your power to ensure that they feel welcomed home and nothing says “I’m so happy to see you” than a nice plate of hot food on the table and a delectable dessert. You look in the fridge and spot the fresh strawberries that you purchased the other day and now they are really red and ripe, ready to be devoured with some whipped cream or perhaps some dark chocolate. You place a fair amount for the two of you to share in a bowl and heat up some dark chocolate with a splash of milk in a pot over the stove. He/she arrives and you welcome them with open arms and lead them to the dining room table where you’ve just placed the two plates. They are elated to see such a beautiful sight and begins to devour the food with no hesitation. You both finish your food, but uh, uh, uh that’s not it! You go into the refrigerator and grab the bowl of strawberries and pour the chocolate into a separate bowl. As if dinner didn’t already make the two of you full, you don’t care. You walk back into the dining room with both bowls in hand and set them on the table. You dip one strawberry in the chocolate and feed your baby. You dip another into the chocolate, but this time you remember there’s whipped cream in the fridge and go and grab that to top it off. Your lover lowly moans in awe of the combination of the food and how good you look in that two-piece lingerie set you decided to wear. You then take the half bitten strawberry and rub it against your nipples in order for them to suck up the juice. After doing so, he/she picks you up and whisks you away into the bedroom where the two of you make passionate love.
