Heroes can be hard to keep. They may be house trained but they’re tough, demanding and uncompromising and that can be pretty damn wearing. But, when it all comes down to the basics, they ARE just human (unless they’re weres or vamps or angels or something and frankly as a contemporary girl I can’t speak to that so I won’t even attempt to!) and even the toughest he-men have basic needs.
Food. Some will see it merely as fuel. Some will see it as a seduction. Some will eat meat, others will sup on caviar and yet others will consider a can of whipped cream and a naked female body all the sustenance they need. My advice? Stock your fridge and be prepared to keep him well fed!
Liquid. No, I’m not talking about water unless it comes frozen in little blocks. Whether he’s a bourbon man, a beer man or a martini shaken not stirred man, find his poison and slake his thirst.
Shelter. A mansion, a Bedouin tent, a yacht or a bedroll under a starry sky – a true hero is at home anywhere. All that matters is who he’s with. And that he gets to build the fire. Let him build the fire.
Warmth. Heroes usually have enough sexual heat to power a small city so this is something you won’t have to provide. Just snuggle in tight and remember a real hero will let you stick your freezing feet against the warmest part of his body (and know how to work that to his advantage).
Clothing. Some like fancy, some like plain, some like minimal. The true hero worries less about his and more about how to get you out of yours. Give him a steady diet of lingerie and the occasional glimpse of thigh, cleavage or butt cheek and he’ll be a happy little hero.
Sleep. Probably low down on the list of his priorities whilst he’s running around trying to save the world. Unless he’s done and is wrapped around his woman in which case he’ll sleep like a baby and wake very early invigorated and raring to go….Again.
Sex. Heroes know how to keep their woman satisfied. Most importantly they make it their life’s mission to do so. And are eager and grateful for the opportunity. They respect a woman’s sexual power and aren’t intimated or threatened by it. Hell, it’s an endless source of fascination for them. This means you win. Challenge them – you won’t be sorry.
Hmm. Okay, have I missed something? What else should we be doing to care for our heroes?
