I see her across the room. She is standing in the center of large picnic area at a ranch where we are having a company function. What I feel in this moment is surreal. It is like she walked right out of my dreams. Surely, this is most beautiful woman I have ever laid my eyes upon. I ask the guy next to me if he knows her? “Who, Sienna? Yeah, good luck with that one!” he laughs. Okay, good to set reasonable expectations.

Sienna is a breathtaking sight to behold and my heart is racing. I savor beautiful sunsets and sunrises, panoramic mountain views, and star-filled heavenly nights. None of these remotely compared to what I am experiencing looking at her. Her long, blonde hair and blue eyes certainly pull me in. Sienna’s incredibly tone figure and sexy curves are beautifully accented with fashionable stylings which draw me in deeper. There is more though…something in the way she moves that casts me into my dreamy haze.

She has such a thoughtful expression in her eyes and her face as she speaks with others. Her smile seems so warm and sincere. Her hands and gestures flow with sensual grace…sparkles of light seem to be radiate around her. I can sense her inner tempo and spirit as she flows beautifully and sensually in the world around her. It is a lot to absorb in one glance, but I feel it. While clearly experiencing a somewhat emotional or spiritual reaction, there is also an equally compelling physical reaction that I am struggling to hide from public view.

As a matter of self preservation, I work hard at avoiding workplace romances. I decide not to approach her and reluctantly yielded to my self-imposed restraint. Since we didn’t work in the same state, we only crossed paths at large national meetings which didn’t occur too often. Each time I saw her though, the same physical and emotional response gripped me. I couldn’t seem to shake her from my thoughts.

When we did briefly connect at meetings, our conversations often centered around fitness. We both enjoyed a physically active lifestyle and enjoyed hearing about one another’s training and upcoming events. I somehow managed to get through these moments despite feeling like I couldn’t form complete sentences around her. It was as if there were circles of light running between and through us…it was electric. There was something magical happening, but she was so hard to read. Was she feeling the same way?

Sienna didn’t make it easy on me. She wore just enough of a protective mask that I couldn’t see or get to that next level with her. Beyond breaking my self-imposed restriction on dating people I work with, I really don’t have anything tangible to loose by making a move on her. Really, I don’t care if a woman rejects me. If you’ve read my blog, it might seem like no one rejects me but it does happen. Well, I’m pretty sure it has happened. I just don’t write about it.

Why the hesitancy? Her perception of me mattered. More importantly though, my perception of her mattered. I liked knowing she was there…this woman that now fueled my fantasies. I didn’t want to get the stiff arm from her and have the dream ruined. It’s not like I wasn’t seeing other girls and having a great time. I was happy. Why risk blowing up the dream? I wait.

Time passes and we no longer work at the same company. By chance, our paths cross at a professional society meeting and the light show was still firing around us. During a slow day at the conference I am coming off an elevator to go out for a run. Sienna is waiting to get on that same elevator. The hands of fate at work?


We randomly ended up at the same bank of elevators. I was waiting to get on and you were hustling off for a run. Michael, your gaze slid over me like a veil of fire and you ignited my deepest desires with that one single glance! I decided right then…WE will Be!❤❤❤❤❤❤ – Sienna

Once again, I have a brief conversation – electric interaction – with Sienna that leaves me dazed. Heading off on my run, I play through the entire interaction over and over. I must have sounded so ridiculous! Why can’t I form complete sentences when she is so close to me? As I run, she is running through my thoughts and pulling at my soul. What is it? I can feel her inside me and see our story in her eyes. Fortunately, the meeting will go on for a few more days. I have time to rally and get myself together. I have to make this move. This could very well be my last opportunity to finally remove Sienna’s mask.

The next evening I am relaxing near the bar with a small group of colleagues. Through other forces at play, Sienna finds her way to this bar and is folded into our little group. This is it…my last opportunity. I lock her down in conversation pretty quickly. I’m not giving any other men the slightest glimmer of hope with Sienna. We make some chit chat as the larger group conversation evolves to plans for heading out to a pub outside the hotel.

The other guys are excited about the prospect of Sienna joining us but she isn’t so sure about it. I focus in and ask her to come out with us…emphasizing that I want to spend more time with her. She moves closer to me and rests her hand on my arm and asks me to promise I won’t forget about her at the pub. “You are the only reason I’m going to go.” Wow. Now this is a good sign.

Sienna wants to go up to her room to change, and I decide it might be a good idea to do the same. After freshening up, I leave my room and hop on the elevator. A few floors down, the elevator stops and Sienna enters. What is it about this elevator? Sienna looks fantastic with her tight, stretchy jeans showing off her long, tone legs and perfect ass. The high heels take it to a whole new level of hotness. Yes, I am drooling. Arriving on the first floor together, we wander around looking for the group and soon find ourselves away from the lobby…and alone.

We are chatting about our passion for exercise and the almost spiritual feeling we sometimes experience during extended endurance-type workouts. The topic makes an important shift when we discuss how this same passion and spirituality is missing in other areas of our life. We go deeper and share what we value and desire in a relationship and the disappointment in not finding it. After years of just scratching the surface, we were finally connecting on a deeper level. We share similar desires, but could we…would we find this in each other? Slowly and gently, I was removing Sienna’s mask and she was revealing herself to me.

Our ever deepening conversation is interrupted as the group finds us and we are swept up in the hustle for taxis.

  1. I actually started with the taxi but had to come here first. 🙂

    1. We are tickled to have your browsing through the archives and leaving a trail a sunshine! 😀

      1. awwww thank you Michael.

  2. Ginger Cholder

    It’s nice that you include sweetness in your Sensual Shadows. I love that even after years of longing, you and Sienna came together, and now share each other’s passions.

    1. Thanks for checking out one of our early stories. I wish we hadn’t waited so long, but Sienna was definitely worth the wait! We started this blog as another fun way for us to connect across the miles…savoring and sharing both the sensual and naughty dimensions of our connection. Thanks for visiting 🙂💖

  3. Baby, I LOVED this post…reconnecting with the moments of our awakening…realizing the magic we share was always there in our eyes…dancing sensually behind our “masks”…waiting…wanting to be freed. You are more than I ever dared to dream.

    1. My sweet Michael, I love your expression and sharing of your thoughts and feelings here. The way we connected and communicated with each other in that “one glance”, truly powerful! Our dance which began a long time ago only has become even more beautiful and eloquent as time goes by. I love you SO my prince! I love your connecting comments, all of the moments described are so vividly alive in my mind and I regularly visit them with a blushing smile and a full heart! xoxoxo

  4. This is so sweet! I love knowing how people met and that pull between each other. You wonder is it just me? Are they feeling it too? And both of you were. Perfect!

    1. Thanks Tis… So true! Our story and beginning is a powerful and magnetic one. We had years of such a powerful, being drawn to one another, type feeling… By the time we actually trusted and surrendered to it, ’twas an indescribable reality! xx

  5. You two are the epitome of timeless love! I told a real-life friend of mine about the two of you….and your SMOLDERING online romantic musings lol. She couldn’t quite wrap her head around it. I said ‘hey, don’t try to understand….just go READ THEM’. lol – hope it stays this way forever. There are many out there who will never know love like this. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    1. Thanks Jalen, this was a very sweet comment. No doubt there is a smoldering love we have for one another!!! I think the key to keeping it is staying engaged and equally contributing. We are always learning more about each other everyday, just as any relationship with success should encompass. “Study each other”… This is a key element! It’s the ebb and flow of adoring love and “hot naughtiness” always woven together! Michael knows me so well, but even if he’s not sure or testing the waters on something…he will figure it out and we communicate!

      1. (taking notes…)

        1. That’s awesome, we love to inspire! And your Girl will appreciate!

    2. Thanks brother, this was such a special comment, really means a lot! 🙂 🙂

  6. don’t you just love that electricity? 🙂

    1. Yes JK! And it sounds like you completely understand what Michael and I experience as described by such adjectives… nouns… verbs 😊

      1. Yes, I get it. Thankfully.

  7. I love to read how you first met and the instant connection you both had.. Amazing, when things happens because they are meant to be.
    It’s funny I am also writing about our first date. 🙂

    1. I LOVED your story too and want to go back in and read again!!!!! It’s been a busy weekend… Will cuddle up with some down time this evening and go back and read!! It is powerful I agree… It’s the glue to your connection with one another!

      1. Awww thank you for the sweet comment about our first date.
        I am slow but will post part two soon. 🙂
        Yes it is, especially when one is long distance…
        Hope your weekend settles. I am happy that I am able to catch up on blogs. 🙂

    2. Thank you MariMar, I know you are very familiar with the energy and power of the connection that surrounds moments like this. Excited to see your magic with CJ as the story you are sharing unfolds! 🙂

      1. Yes, I am and I am so lucky that I do. I never knew one could have this type of relationship with another human being. 🙂
        We, as others that are like us, are very lucky.

  8. […] Gently Removing Sienna’s Mask is part I. […]

  9. Hmmmm…wow.
    Such a love 🖤

  10. I love fitness! Although I am not completely toned or have a good enough physique to be in the fitness shows, but I love what it does for me. I love connecting with others over it, like how you and Sienna did. It really helps in all areas of life besides “looking good”, ya know?
    my Instagram is pretty much based around my fitness and how it plays into life.

    I know you guys had a great connection on all levels. Do you think you will find that again? Or hope to again? Is there a chance of you two reuniting?

    1. I don’t really think there will be a future with Sienna. However, I do believe in the magic we once shared and that I can feel it again with another soul. I love that you are in a great fitness groove!😊 I keep it going pretty consistently but have better periods than others, ha! Totally agree that it makes other areas of your life come alive as well including…the naughty side ☺️🔥

      1. That’s good you still have faith/hope you’ll be able to feel it with another (if you aren’t already; without delving into or having you reveal your personal life too much). I always feel like things with people have a time and place, ya know?

        Oh I get you on the fitness groove! Lol weeks where I’m in the gym every other day and then when I’m lucky to make it twice that week (where I try to make up for it with periods of outside activities). It can be a struggle! But worth it in the end.

        1. I experienced romantic love with Sienna. You may remember the old post I did about this form of love. It is real but it is also cyclical and fades…unless recognized for what it is with purposeful steps taken to rekindle at least periodic moments of passion’s flame. For me, cuckolding is one way to do that. There are other ways of course. ☺️

          1. I do remember! 🙂

  11. CinnamonGirl

    Seems spicy and sensual

    1. As do you 🔥Thank you 😘

  12. CinnamonGirl

    Ay papi, you make me red blushing very hard.

    1. And you make me very hard…and blushing ☺️🔥

  13. I get caught up in each of your stories with Sienna. I never try to look for the specific order of any of your postings. I just love to read what I stumble upon at that time. They are pleasurable no matter what order I read them!

    1. Thank you Angelica, this comment means a lot. While tend to tell my stories in a series format, I do try to give enough in each one to have it stand on its own as a single story. Your comment suggests that may be working and I really appreciate it. ☺️Sienna was quite a loving and very naughty girl 🔥

Hope you enjoyed and will share your thoughts...
