Victoria's Secret

**Hi all, welcome to another Writing Prompt Wednesday. Won't you play along? The guidelines are simple, and I'd love to read what you come up with.**

"What do you think of this one?" Lily asked, modeling a lacy pink bra and matching thong.

Jason shrugged and shook his head. "Nah."

Lily disappeared back into the changing room then re-emerged in a little black bra and microscopic panties. "What about this set?"

He shook his head again, looking bored. "That's no good either."

By this point, they had been at the store for nearly an hour. Lily had gone into the changing room dozens of times, hoping to find the perfect lingerie set with which to seduce her fiance, Kevin. Jason, a childhood friend who had recently become a priest, was there to offer the male perspective and tell her to wait for said seduction until the wedding night in two weeks.

Lily was beginning to think that a man of the cloth wasn't her best choice for the task. She gave him an exasperated look. "What's wrong with this one?" She gestured to the bits which the set especially emphasized. "Do I, or do I not, look awesome in this?"

"You're beautiful, of course you are. That's not the point." Jason walked her over to stand in front of the mirror. He waved at the acreage of skin exposed before them. "The point is, look at that."

"Look at what?" Lily did not like the direction he was going in.

Jason sighed. "I don't mean it like that. What I'm trying to say is, everywhere you look today, you can find pictures of naked, or nearly naked, women. Seriously, it's getting old. I mean, dude, where's the mystery? But, leave a bit to the imagination..." He looked at the racks behind them and pulled off a slightly sheer white teddy that was long enough to almost reach her knees.

"That one?" Lily asked in disbelief.

"Oh yeah. This one. A little bit of mystery is very appealing." He winked. "That's why nuns are so sexy."

"I'm going to pretend you didn't say that last part," Lily said. Then she took the teddy from his hand and went to the changing room to try it on.
