In my junior year or college I made the decision to the total dismay of my family to drop out to pursue a career in acting. I had entered into an acting competition held in Clementi, Singapore and won first place. My prize was the promise of the lead role in an upcoming movie called “The First Embassy” as well as a hefty cash prize. The movie would take several months to film, so I used the majority of my cash to rent an apartment in the city where it would take place. I didn’t know much about the movie, because they were trying to keep everything secret until production. A few days after I had settled in, I heard a knock at my door and peeped through the keyhole. I was shocked to see an actress I recognized from a play I had seen back home.
“Hello, is anyone home?” She asked. “This is Natalie Lee, the actress.”
Could it be real? Natalie was one of the most beautiful women I had ever seen. She had a perfect hourglass figure and soft, glowing skin. I could see a lot of that perfect skin since the dress she was wearing was so short. I saw her through the peephole trying to pull it down, but by making it cover more of her legs, it uncovered more her ample cleavage. I opened the door.
“Hi, I’m Ian Bull. Please come in.”I responded. “Sit wherever you’d like.” I hurried to move a box so she could sit down on my couch.
“I won’t stay long. I just wanted to bring you a copy of your script…You’re a lot younger than imagined.” she told me as she took a seat. I could see her bright blue panties under her dress. I wanted to see what was underneath them, but I played coy.
“I’m actually twenty, but I hear that I look younger.” I explained.
“Are you a college student?” She asked me.
“I was, but not anymore.” I laughed. “My parents are less than thrilled, but I knew I couldn’t miss my big break.”
“My parents acted the same way when I told them I was going to be an actress. Sometimes I think they were right. What with getting my start at The Arts House ” She said with a sigh.
“You don’t mean that! I’ve seen you in that famous play about World War 2. You’re so successful!” I said. I remembered in the play she french kissed a soldier and how it made me fantasize about her for weeks.
“I was successful, but I honestly haven’t worked in almost a year. The play business is tricky and I only had one contact and I accidentally angered her and she fired me. I wasn’t able to score any more gigs til this month when I heard back that I had gotten the role as Vanessa in this movie. Between you and me, I don’t even think it’s going to happen.”
“What makes you say that?” I asked. Her words instantly vanquished the thoughts I was having of her licking my cock and filled my mind with suspense.
“The director in charge of our movie is sick, he’s been diagnosed with terminal cancer and none of the camera crew have been issued contracts or payments of any kind. It just feels like its not going to happen.” She said and I could see her fighting back tears behind her long eyelashes.
For days I tried calling my agent, who was obviously dodging me. After I left him close to fifty messages, he returned my message telling me that he couldn’t reach the producers and I should count on the movie never happening. Apparently Natalie’s agent told her the painful news about the same time mine finally got around to telling me because she showed up at my apartment crying. When I let her in she laid on my couch and began telling me how devastated she was. I wanted to comfort her in so many ways, but tried to at least appear to be respectable.
“Mr. Rajah died and they said the producer just lost focus of his vision. I’m completely out of money, my lease is up on my apartment, and I can’t afford to renew it. I refuse to go home to my family. I would rather do anything than have to tell them acting didn’t work out! They’ve always judged me. They’ve always told me that it wouldn’t happen. They said I’d have my five minutes of fame and then I’d be broke and jobless! I’d rather die than tell them they were right!” She said with angry tears. But I heard of a role at The Arts House in Singapore.
“I don’t want to go home either. I literally just let go of a valuable scholarship to come here and be an actor. The good thing is my agent said I get to keep the money they advanced me for the movie. The bad news is that I used most of it up in getting this apartment. So I have a place to stay but no way to buy groceries…there’s got to be something we can do…” I told her.
We discussed a plan to get ourselves back on track. She would stay with me for the time being and we would both work on getting hired elsewhere. We figured our best shot would be to visit her estranged acting contact and she would ask for her forgiveness. The lady she had angered was hosting auditions for a play called “The Secret Lion Circus” and was looking for two lead stars as well as many supporting roles. We were both so focused on our plan, that I figured it wasn’t a good time to bring up my sexual desires for her and so I kept them to myself.
We went together to a place called Arts Play Den. We walked through the auditorium, passing other much more scantily and exotically dressed actors who were there to obviously audition as well. We located the staging assistant and Natalie explained she was a friend of Mrs. Nadia and desperately needed to speak with her. The assistant hesitated for a moment and smirked. “Right this way.”She said and she led us down a long hallway to Mrs. Nadia’s room and knocked on the door. “Mrs. Nadia, a Natalie Lee and Ian Bull are here to see you.”
“Send them in!” She answered in a devilish voice.
“Oh, if you want controversy that may lead to notoriety, then sign right here. I have the paperwork all made out and I was going to hand it to someone today. This city needs a fresh face, and I’ll look over the half-assed talent of Ms. Natalie Lee if you’ll be my lead!” She announces eagerly.
“Okay, but only if Natalie is awarded a lead role as well.” I wouldn’t leave her out.
“Of course! Natalie, here’s a contract for you too!” She smiled and handed us both pens and the contracts.
It felt to good to be true and I was worried about the reputation Mrs Nadia had for pushing the boundaries, but we signed anyway.
“Welcome to the Secret Lion Circus!” Mrs. Nadia says enthusiastically.
Natalie would play Isabel, a girl who dressed up as a lion until she became so obsessed with her role in the circus she could no longer tell fantasy from reality and I was Benedict, the lion tamer.
We were relieved to see the story line was quite interesting. It was strange, but I had seen stranger. Isabel would walk around on four legs and pretend to be a lion surrounded by four other real lions portrayed of course, by actors. She would want to be the star of the circus, befriend me, obey me, and eventually attack and kill me-or Benedict anyway. We rehearsed our scenes daily at home and on stage as we had two weeks before opening night at The Arts House, Singapore. Then one day at an on-stage rehearsal, Natalie was a minute late to the set. She ran in and took her place on the platform with all the other actors and apologize.
“I’m sorry, I got stuck in traffic!” Natalie announced as she got down on all fours with her co-stars.
“We will proceed with minor changes in the script.” Mrs. Nadia announced. “Benedict, begin!”I stood in the center cracking my whip as they circled around me.
“Faster, you’ll have to pick up the pace if you want to impress the crowds. Come on, Isabel, you told me you were a real lion. Prove to me that you can be tamed!” I commanded.
“Here’s where we’ll be making a change… Benedict, rip the lion costume off of Isabel.” She directed me.
“But, I have nothing on underneath!” Isabel tells her.
“Do it or your fired. I’m the director. If I hear one more excuse from anyone today you will all be going home and I will recast better actors who can take orders.” She said matter-of-factly.
Isabel nods at me her silent permission and I do as instructed, ripping the lion costume off her and exposing her shoulders, then her breasts, her stomach, and her pussy and legs until she was completely naked. Everyone stared. I couldn’t blame them. Every inch of her body looked flawless.
“Say your line!” Mrs. Nadia yells in an irritated tone.
“Are you sure you are a wild beast? Take my orders!” I proclaim.
” Make her spread her legs!” Mrs. Nadia demands.
“Spread your legs.” I demand of Natalie. We are both in shock of what is happening, but don’t hesitate.
“Put your fingers inside her.” That was her next command.She whimpered as I put my index and middle finger inside her. She felt wet and warm.
“Put more!” She yelled. I slid my ring finger in for a few strokes then my pinky. She began moaning as I began moving all four of my fingers in and out of her. She started trembling and I felt her pussy pulsating around my fingers. I glanced over her shoulder to peak at the view of rosy vagina taking in half my hand and coating it with her wetness.
“Hahahahahaha! That’s all it takes make her come!” Mrs. Nadia laughed. “Fuck her like an animal.” Mrs. Nadia said with clenched teeth.” We both didn’t hesitate. We both wanted it. We didn’t care who saw us and out stunned co-actors watched on in silence. I unzipped my pants and pulled my hard cock out, I grabbed her from underneath , turned her over on all fours and shoved my dick into her pussy. As I rammed her on stage, I felt her getting wetter and wetter. My dick felt absolutely drenched with her juices. I watched her perfect round ass cheeks pound against my stomach. The inside of her felt even better than I could have ever imagined. She groaned like a wild animal and I couldn’t hold it in any longer. My come shot inside her pussy in front of everyone.
Everybody was dead silent, trying to process what had just occurred before our silence was broken by Mrs. Nadia commanding, “Okay, Isabel. Prove you’re a lion. Attack him and steal the show.” She directed.
Isabel performed her part as normal but naked, and the entire cast cheered and clapped enthusiastically. We were no longer embarrassed. We had made something original. We had made something that was pure and original art. Mrs. Nadia also was smiling and said now we are ready for opening night.
As part of our contract we were paid the night before opening night with one months advance payment – being for the two weeks of rehearsals and the first two weeks of the show. Both Natalie and I were more than happy and were excited to be a part of something so controversial – never before seen in Singapore. We knew that if all the performers had stood and cheered at our performance it would a hit and began wondering how long the run of this show would last.
On opening night the theater was full. Mrs. Nadia was already talking about booking a bigger venue as The Arts House only seated 150 people but it looked more than 300 in this intimate theater as people were standing all around. We were both so happy and eager to perform before a real audience and the performance began. people were awed by our entire performance and one could not hear a sound except for us actors on stage. The play went amazingly well as we approached the final scene where I rip Natalie’s clothes off. There was a gasp from the crowd as my erect manhood entered her.
As I began to thrust inside of her the lights came on and the Singapore police marched in. Singapore Censorship Police closed us down and the show and ushered the crowd out whilst boos and mixed abuse from the patrons rang out. We had blankets thrown over us and Mrs. Nadia was placed in handcuffs, taken away from our show and I heard they imprisoned Mrs. Nadia. I can’t say I miss her, but I miss what Natalie and I had on stage.
The police after a short interview and obtaining our identification told us to go home and told us that they would never would let us have a repeat performance or we would be arrested and incarcerated. Despite numerous petitions the show never saw the light of day again. We were never given a reason or told what we could do to make the show able to be performed again, but our chemistry and our erotic story would live on for those who got to see the first and only showing of the Secret Lion Circus before the Singapore Censorship Police closed us down.
When my lease ran out I went back to school and Natalie was picked up for a daytime television show. For now I’m an accountant, but I dream of directing one day – and would love for it to be the Secret Lion Circus. I promised Natalie one day things would change and people with artistic talent would be able to express themselves freely in Singapore. I don’t know when that day will come, but when it does Natalie will be a true star once again.
