Coming fast behind were the Egyptians , mounted on their chariots, racing over the smooth floor getting closer, some although out of range were excitedly but fruitlessly firing their arrows.

I recently criticised a submitted short story of the same genre. Never having written any erotica I decided that it was only fair to put my head above the parapet. I've a mind to use a 'cleaner' version of the story as an introduction to a longer character study. Any thoughts/comments would be gratefully accepted.
