Every year I say I’ll write a Christmas story, and every year I fail to do so. Not this year, though!
Anyone who read my story Judith and Eleanor, may recall Eleanor’s young brother Matthew. This story sheds a little light on his innermost desires, and the year all his Christmases came at once.
Themes of adultery, cuckoldry, and avoiding midnight mass.
This is part one of two, the second part should go up just before Christmas itself. Enjoy, and seasons greetings to you all!

Part I: It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
Matthew knew he was an irritant. But he also knew that it had no bearing on his successes with the opposite sex, so he didn’t pay it much heed. He knew his sister was the golden child, who could do no wrong, even when she had descended into sapphism. Evidently parental love was strong enough to overcome the family shame. And perhaps being forever in her shadow was fortuitous – meaning he could do as he pleased with very little attention coming his way as a result.
Still, the girls who he found himself in bed with, or occasionally up against a wall or conveniently located tree – and they were girls, even in their twenties and thirties, flighty, annoying, more annoying than he could ever claim to be – were hardly the kind he truly desired. Caroline in particular, whose angular chest seemed to invade his personal environment every time he ventured home, was a pleasant enough fuck, but little about her personality or appearance aroused him otherwise.
No, only one woman had captured his heart, and made him throb with lust each time he encountered her, or even thought of her.
Each Christmas the family entertained the wider Addison clan, and amongst their number were cousin Edgar and his beautiful wife Cynthia and Matthew ingratiated himself to her and tried in vain to catch her attention and every year she resolutely ignored him in a dress more closely cut, more deep at the neck and tighter around her hips with every passing winter.
She yawned in his presence. She called him a child to his face and still his cock stiffened and he brought his hand to it over and over, imagining the feel of her, the sight of his come dripping over her chest. One year they roomed in the chamber next to his and all night through the wall he heard her moans of pleasure as Edgar fucked her. The next morning she smiled sweetly at everyone, with languid eyes, and Matthew felt sure he could see the pale residue of Edgar’s love on her elegant throat.
This year, his 26th, he stood in the nursery, watching the cars creep up the driveway as each guest arrived. First came his sister and Judith – still in the first flushes of love – and bearing large, ungainly parcels, which he did not feel inclined to help them with.
A gaggle of aunts and uncles arrived more or less in a clump, and then Matthew spied Edgar’s Jag gliding up to the front gates. He knew it was ridiculous that this made his cock twitch but he knew she was inside, and proximity to her made him giddy.
When she exited the car he was not disappointed. As Edgar took her hand, Matthew noted the new weight in her hips and chest, barely disguised by her heavy winter coat. In spite of the cold weather, his cock throbbed quietly.
Supper was a gay affair – they toasted and drank cocktails and played the many terrible party games their parents would insist on every year in spite of the youngest ‘child’ being a robust 24 and six foor seven. Matthew noticed Cynthia’s lingering glances but thought better than to encourage her. He drank, and flirted with Judith and angered his sister and watched a spill of champagne spread over Cynthia’s left breast, showing the puckered flesh of her nipple beneath it and he stared.
She seemed to be looking at him peculiarly, though. When the record player was brought out and some reluctant, aristocratic dancing broke out, Matthew watched Cynthia and Edgar talk quietly with their heads close together, before Edgar took Mrs Addison’s arm and began to steer her around the room. Cynthia licked her lips and advanced on Matthew.
“Care for a dance, cousin?” She asked innocently.
“Certainly.” He took her around the waist and they began to dance, rather awkwardly because he still held his glass in his hand.
“I’m sure you can hold me tighter than that, Matthew. Or else I’m likely to fly off.”
He swallowed the rest of his brandy and, emboldened by the fire in his belly, pulled her more tightly to him, the swell of her breasts firm and exciting against his chest.
“You’re suddenly very familiar. Is Father Christmas bringing you some charm tomorrow morning?”
Cynthia smiled and rested her head on his shoulder.
“Oh no, I am already far too charming. I have charm for days, weeks, months, years… It’s only that you can be rather tiresome, you know. You know I am married, you know I am ten years your senior, and yet you persist in approaching me as if I were a flighty girl of nineteen. Five and thirty, Matthew.”
“Harmless flirting.” He replied, his hand sliding lower down her back to where her curves flared. If anyone raised their eyebrows he would only reply that the silk of her dress made his hands slip.
“Quite. And I have resisted your flirting for all these years. And Edgar has watched you. He has seen everything.”
“Has he? And what has cousin Edgar seen?”
“Enough. He has noted your dogged determination.”
She pressed her hips closer to him, could feel his cock acutely present in his trousers. She leant very closed and whispered.
“Tomorrow morning there will be no gift for you under the tree. As Judith opens a beautiful silver necklace, and your parents gush over Venetian glassware, there will be no parcel covered in ribbons addressed to Matthew. I am your gift. Tonight I will lie in your bed; display myself to you in all my glory, and you will fuck me. And fucking me will be your gift. The gift you have waited five Christmases for.”
Matthew covered his surprise admirably.
“And Edgar has agreed to this?”
Cynthia gestured to her husband. Matthew looked, and Edgar was watching them over Mrs Addison’s shoulder, nodding in approval. He caught Matthew’s questioning eyes. He laughed, and then nodded.
“That proves nothing. He could think we are discussing the weather.”
Cynthia rolled her eyes, and, still with her body as close to his as the shepherd to his lambs, manoeuvred them over to where the other couple stood. The record petered out and Mrs Addison kissed Edgar’s cheek before toddling off to see if supper was prepared. Edgar put a protective arm around Cynthia.
“Edgar, darling. Mayn’t Matthew fuck me tonight?” She purred, coiling herself around Edgar’s stout body.
“Of course, darling. That’s the particular Christmas gift we agreed to give him, isn’t it? To see you naked before him and know he can take you, for one entire night? And wake up on Christmas morning with your arms around him?”
“Before I slip quietly away back to your side to wake you up with your Christmas gift.” She giggled.
“You may have noticed, dear cousin, how well Cynthia is looking. How fleshy and rounded she is.”
Edgar moved his arm to her belly and continued. “I’m sure I don’t need to explain why this would be of particular interest to you.”
Matthew felt his cock jerk once more.
“Is this some kind of shoddy trick? Am I to be ridiculed as soon as my trousers are down?”
Cynthia shook her head.
“No, dear heart. Nothing of the sort. I know how you have desired me, and I have rebuffed your advances because it is unseemly for a married woman to be seen in flagrante with her husband’s cousin. Edgar – dear, sweet, loving Edgar – has never actually forbade me from taking you in hand and fulfilling your base desires, but I simply didn’t want to.”
Matthew sagged a little at this, but she pressed on, as Edgar, with a quick look to make sure they were hidden from immediate view, moved his hand from her waist to stroke her nipple through the damp material. She sighed and shivered into his shoulder.
“But these past few months, this winter in particular, as my belly has swelled and the fires have burned brighter, I have grown somewhat… needful. Insatiable. I have run poor Edgar quite ragged. Even a man has his limitations. But when one cannot truly satisfy oneself, one must look outside one’s own home. And so to you, dear Matthew. My body – my cunt.” She emphasises the word, her lips shiny, crimson, pressed together as if making love to it. His cock twitched again. “The gift you have always desired. And to me, Satiation. Desire fulfilled. So. Shall we?”
The room seemed quiet all at once – the guests had filtered away to eat morsels, and prepare for Midnight mass.
“They’ll miss us at church.”
Matthew knew he sounded as though he was making excuses, finding flaws in the plan, however small, but he wanted so much for this to be true that he had to make sure he wasn’t dreaming, or being set up for a terrifying fall and being turned out from his family.
Edgar put a firm hand on his shoulder.
“Matthew. When was the last time you attended Midnight Mass? Possibly when you were still in short trousers and chasing girls with frogs. No one will note your absence and be sent to fetch you. I shall go, leaving Cynthia to bed with fatigue. The house shall be quite deserted. Deserted enough for your purposes, at least.”
The clock struck the hour. 11.00pm.
“I really must go with them.” He enveloped Cynthia in his arms and she kissed him, his hand still cradling her breast and her fingers stroking his jawline.
“Tomorrow morning, my love.” She called, as he left to gather his coat and winter boots to walk the mile to the parish church. The last few guests set down their glasses and exited, and now they were alone.
“Come, will you take me to my room? I feel suddenly overcome and unable to return to bed without some assistance.” Matthew saw the lust in her eyes, and at last knew it to be true.
He took her arm, and lead her upstairs.
