I enter.  I watch her face carefully, to see if my entry would be noted, apprised, assayed for intent or design.  She knows me.  One moment I am clever humor, another second's arrival and I am blue.  It is the crux of our natures, la raisons féminines that we come together here.  She sits surrounded, boudoir lit in subtile color.  The sheets that I remember, bought together before I knew. She has changed her hair; both style and color, dark again with une teinte de rouge run through. My heart aches to see this return of what I had loved until it burnt me to.

The lady reclines upon her side, elle est élégante, surrounded by her soupirants hésitants who sudden silent and with yellowed eyes and à partir de l'ombre ils chuchotent à elle; they smile and hide their mouths with mains impures.  I do not know what their soft growls whisper but by her affirmatives and affirmations I understand it to be amusante et sexuelle. I with courtesy, bid salute, my curtsey complete, humbled, I give bisous.  I see the tension in petits mouvements painted tenderly sous le maquillage autour ses yeux.  Elle accueille chaleureusement before taking yet another lover's hand and leaving.  This is why she and I are here.

no this is a work, or part of a work, i had pondered regarding how like the Salons of the 18th century adult web camgirl rooms are; a common shared interest, and occassionaly some wit and humor, and then rarely an intelligence on display ... and always the petty intriques and jealousies at play ... and ruling it all the 'mistress' sponser or salonnières. At the end of the 17th century they were conducted in the bed chambers of the sponsering female, while she reclined upon her silken mattresses and pillows. Later into the 18th century that period has been termed the era of conversation, but our salons, and the conversations held are between animals of a far more basic sort, with eyes which gleam yellow in the soft light, and whose fangs are rarely straight.
I have been considering this beginning for some time, as I said, but then i saw the winning word of the National Spelling Contest and many things became synchronis ... the title itself is the derivational combination of the winning word, which means 'ambush'. The essance of what she wished when a day ago she issued her invitation to me.

So that is what we are, and that is what our salons have become.

whoa. mandy, this is so interesting. sad but so very interesting. i love how you wrote it

so by Aigais you mean 'aguets" as in "être aux aguets"
Amanda-Graham's avatar
"être aux aguets" ummm non it is the laying of the trap itself 'the construction of a trap' the sense of that i think in English there are words for different types of traps, and in 'tactical movments' (the.world.of.my.parents) (learned.oh.learned) the ambush is hmmm carefully planned in anticipation of (l'entrée, la réponse, le mouvement, l'évasion, le point d'arrivée) humans, are 'ambushed' with elegance ... and that we have in our language a word for the trapping of humans that is français well then that word involves something fare more complex and specific in its 'intention'. somewhere in all of this (blather) today here and there about this work in progress ... i noted that it is all so very Les Liaisons Dangereuses. As Valmont i am weary of it, and seek only the young man's rapier, oui?
wordeea's avatar
yes! that was my next comment, absolutely reminds me of les liaisons dangereuses. i would not have survived 2 seconds in that world. i'm too naive
Amanda-Graham's avatar
oh i did wonderfully with it in the wee hours of this morning ... hahaha @ the surprised face when the role reversals occurred HA!
wordeea's avatar
Amanda-Graham's avatar
well i looked up the spelling word "guetapens," which means an ambush, snare or trap and then sought its etymology ...

"An alteration of Middle French d'agais apensés, corresponding to aguet (“ambush”) + past participle of apenser (“conceive of”)."
wordeea's avatar
ooh yes!! i see it now. excellent!
Amanda-Graham's avatar
and i am sure i have constructed it quickly and badly (franglais.merde)
Amanda-Graham's avatar
and this appealed to me ... because cam-whoredom (moi) is a 'conceptual trap' and whenever i 'appeared' in her room it was as described above ... everyone knew, of course, about 'us' ... and so in a sense it was like a Salon of 17th century existance with snide remarks and comments semi-cleverly made ... the humiliations were unbearable and are worse now ... the few moments that i have gone there ... it has felt like a minefield ... {{{shudders}}} at the most recent 'invitiation' and how that proceeded *shrug* ... it is become something like liasons dangerous with plot and plot and plot ... *shrug* and people think that the games played between men and women are complex and damaging ........

I posted it on the forum of that site i have spoken of ... with a very long lead in explaination (sans)(finger.pointing) but as i note above ... everyone knows of the catastrophe de notre amour
Amanda-Graham's avatar
hmmm a la français ... i love the play of sounds within line and stanza and work as whole, and because of the origns of the Salon, and my love of the poetic nature of français itself, i pushed a bit harder and attempted to create further ways of 'complexing' the play of sound. I wish my ablilites with the languages (english/french) were better fed by vocabulary, and perhaps with enough time that will come more easily.

lol @ 'feeling better' my double entendre would be "never better".
