Feliz Navidad by Jose Feliciano
By Shellie Brown
Angie was looking forward to her session today with Mary but she was also a little nervous. Angie never asked the counselor to hypnotize her before and she was only doing this because she and George were finally beginning to connect again. She wanted to do something special but she was so shy that she couldn’t think of any other way to come up with the courage to give him the gift she wanted to give him.
So today at her therapy session she was going to be hypnotized and have the hypnotic suggestion planted that only on Christmas Eve and only when she heard a certain song, a certain Christmas Carol that was George’s favorite, Feliz Navidad. Which she never heard anywhere else except in her home that she would begin a slow sensual striptease for him.
That was where the misadventure began. The session went fine and she had almost forgotten about the hypnotic suggestion until they were wrapping presents on Christmas Eve for their son and they ran out of tape.
George asked her to run to the store quickly and grab another roll so that they could finish wrapping presents before he got up in the morning.
Angie walked into the store, the type of big-box store that was the only place still open on Christmas Eve after 8 p.m. She started to wander back towards where the tape would be by where they kept all the school supplies and craft supplies, and then it happened. Feliz Navidad came on over the intercom and she completely forgot why she was there.
Angie started to slowly and sensually dance and begin to take off her top. She was in the process of unzipping her skirt whenever security caught up with her and took her to the back which snapped her out of it because she could no longer hear the music in the security office. Angie looked around bewildered and covered herself realizing she wasn’t wearing a shirt.
The security guard handed her her top and asked if she would please put it back on. He then asked if there was someone they could call to pick her up since she didn’t seem well.
They called her husband George, who arrived within ten minutes. She had to explain to him what had happened. At first he was shocked but, when she explained what she had been trying to do for him, he just laughed and kissed her and asked if she had gotten the tape. When she said she didn’t think so, they walked back hand in hand and got the tape before driving home together.
They finished wrapping Michael’s presents and put on Feliz Navidad so that she could give him his present. What Angie didn’t realize it that officially Christmas Eve is over at midnight and it was 12:32 a.m. when they turned on Feliz Navidad but it didn’t matter anymore, she had all the courage she needed.
Angie gave him a slow sensual striptease which led to the best Christmas gift either of them had ever had and a closeness that would last for all of the coming year.
