Read me a story, Daddy

I’ve never been in love with the sound of my own voice.  I’ve read somewhere that when we hear our own voice, we don’t really hear how it actually sounds.  Others’ hear it differently.  Now, my pet has asked me to send her audio recordings, so that while we’re apart, she can have something of me that she can go back to, listen and feel close to me.  I was ok with the idea, but what to do?  What to say?  While I was thinking about this, she had talked to a friend of hers about it and the friend suggested I could read a passage from a book, or a poem, or something that was long enough that my pet could have that snippet of my voice to hold and cherish.

Around the same time, I had thought of the same thing myself.  I like books, I like reading them.  I prefer fantasy and science fiction, but I also like books about the BDSM scene.  For many years I’ve been a great fan of Laura Antoniou and her collection of books called The Marketplace Series.  I even joined in and supported her sixth book (The Inheritor) on a Kickstarter project.  So I decided to read and record the series for my girl.  Of course, it’s not so simple, because audio files tend to be rather large depending on the format that you use, so it’s been a bit of trial and error to get the size of the files right for sending via email.  But I’ve been getting the kinks out slowly, and finally managed to figure it all out in the last couple of days.

I’ve listened to my recordings and I still don’t like the sound of my own voice.  But she does, and this keeps us close, which is what we both want.  So it works out.  Hope that you enjoy every chapter, pet.
