881. Marilynn felt his hot breath


Marilynn felt his hot breath on the back of her neck. She heard the timbre and resonance of his voice in her ear, saying sweet nothings; even his comments about the weather made her think they were lying together on the beach of some tropical paradise. She felt the touch of his body behind her; his strong arm ready to hold if she fell. The rippling muscles of his still-shirted torso…

God! How she hated these daily get-to-work rides in an overcrowded elevator.

              The trouble with my tree is that I research it back unto the 29th half cousin seven times removed. So it’s inevitable that a few stray odd-bods creep in!

                  I have a computer program that tells me automatically, but I can’t really work it out on my own. If you ask me, quite a number of relatives need to be “removed”.


Make my day! Have a say!
