Anna and Sam. Chapter 28

“You are a Psychiatrist, Helen. It is your job to 'cure' my sick mind..."

I opened my eyes and looked at the attractive but serious face which was watching me from the chair beside my bed. “I didn't see or hear anything as I ran,” I told her. “I didn't notice the man I bumped into and I didn't notice the busy road but worse, I didn't notice the lorry that was coming along it. The driver braked as hard as he could but he didn't have a hope of stopping or avoiding...Read On

Anna and Sam. Chapter 27

“I was out of control with love and lust...” I heard her say.

“What do you mean, 'the door was open'?” Philip asked her, rather abruptly. “How could you possibly know that?” Sam stared at him in terror.  "I...I...” Her mouth formed the words but there was no sound. I couldn't bear to see her so terrified, I didn't want that and as Philip opened his mouth to berate her I put my hand on his arm. “Getting angry won't help, Philip, she...Read On

Anna and Sam. Chapter 26

“Sam!” he exclaimed, “What do you mean, Sam? I thought you were done with all that!”

After I finished the call to Penny I ran down the stairs to find Philip. He was in the kitchen checking the back door for any signs of damage. “I can't see anything,” he said without looking up. “Did Penny leave it open?” I shook my head. “No, Penny didn't come in while we were away and we didn't leave it open either.” Philip stopped instantly and stared at me, puzzled. “Well,...Read On

Anna and Sam Chapter 25

The romance was still with us as, in the dark we slowly undressed each other.

Leaving Venice was a real heart wrenching moment. Although we had but a few days there It was as though it had defined our whole lives together. I felt I had learned more about Philip in that time than in the whole of the last twenty-five years. We didn't have a great deal to say on the flight but sat arm in arm, each of us deep in our own thoughts. It had been a wonderful few...Read On

Anna and Sam. Chapter 24

"He kissed me with a passion the like of which I had never known..."

I watched intently as the long, thin glass tilted and the pale fizzing liquid moving slowly towards the rim. Everything appeared in slow motion and I stared expectantly as the bubbles rose to the surface and tipped over the edge in a thin stream until... I gasped as the chilled champagne at last found its mark, splashing on my mound, a rivulet of cold, frothing wine running down between...Read On

Anna and Sam. Chapter 23

“You lousy rotten sod!” I hissed, “Have you any idea what that did to me just then?”

“Honey, what's wrong? You look as though you have seen a ghost.” Philip looked at me across the table. “Erm, no, nothing,” I eventually replied. “I just thought I saw someone I knew but I don't think it was them.” “I'm not with you,” he replied. “As we passed the stairs I thought I recognized someone, just a fleeting glimpse. It was probably just a trick of the light.” I hoped...Read On

Anna and Sam. Chapter 22

“To hell with the dinner!” I stormed. “What are you accusing me of?"

Over the following week, I was somewhat troubled by what Penny had said which, on the face of it, was precisely nothing. She was never coy, never afraid to speak her mind and yet here she was, seemingly hinting that something wasn't all it appeared but was afraid to speak of it. Since I had hit the nadir of my life I had been working so hard to be the loving wife that Philip wanted...Read On

The Runner

He began to feel that familiar stirring in his loins as he watched her...

“Good grief, it's hot!” Gina wafted her hand in front of her shining face. The mercury in the office thermometer had risen past the eighty-five degrees mark and even with all the windows wide open the room was completely airless. It was 1976 and the summer sun had been beating down relentlessly for days now. The only good thing that Gina could see was, that as it was Friday, the...Read On

Anna and Sam. Chapter 21

...without looking up from his book he said, “I think we should have a break.”

The following morning I awoke with a dry mouth and painfully throbbing head. As I lay there I made up my mind that the time had come to pull myself together and get back on my feet... metaphorically speaking at that point, considering I had a broken ankle to consider. Anyway, my mind was made up. I would not win back the man I adored by getting drunk and shouting at him. That was not the...Read On

Anna and Sam. Chapter 20

“You're drunk!” he snarled. “Am I?” I replied flatly, “Am I really?

The rest of the day seemed to pass so slowly. Philip was attentive as he ever was, making coffee and tea, and ensuring I stayed off my feet as much as possible, generally behaving as he always did but it wasn't the same and we both knew it. He had lost that sparkle. It was breaking my heart to see him. I knew he still loved me but he was a broken man and I don't think he liked me very much....Read On

Anna and Sam Chapter 19

“Anna, no!” Penny gripped my wrist, “That is not the answer!”

As Penny had requested, Sam and Anna remained seated quietly together, side by side, holding each others hand. She wasn't gone long and soon returned carrying a tray containing a large cafetière of freshly brewed coffee, three cups and a plate of biscuits. She placed them on the low table and very quickly each of them were holding a hot steaming mug. Sam leaned forwards and poured...Read On

Anna and Sam. Chapter 18

I retched and heaved until my abdomen ached with the unprecedented effort...

“Sam, wait! Come back... Please!” I shouted as she ran. I tried to get to my feet but my cast made it difficult. “Penny, stop her!” Penny ran after her but it was too late, Sam was gone. When she returned I begged her to follow her, to find and tell her how sorry I was. “I can't, Anna,” she answered with a slight shake of her head, “I didn't see which way she turned at the end of...Read On

Song of Myself

I felt hands touching me. Strong masculine hands, soft feminine hands and I didn't care one bit!

I was excited! More excited than I could ever remember having been in my whole life. After more than fifty years of existing in a life of pleasing my husband, family, relatives, friends and keeping up a facade of an ordinary working woman and mother, I was about to burst out, to shed my old life as a snake sheds its skin. This night I was about to do something that I could never have...Read On

Anna and Sam. Chapter 17

“You told him about us, about what we did together?”

“Philip wait it's not what...” I jumped, the sentence left hanging in the air as the front door slammed closed. “Penny, stop him, please!” I begged her, “I have to explain to him.” Penny was already up and followed him out through the door. I tried to stand also but my head was spinning and throbbing so much that I just slumped back onto the chair and waited, my breathing difficult...Read On

Anna and Sam. Chapter 16

“I wanted to die, Penny. Wouldn't that solve everything?”

It was several hours later that I finally plucked up the courage to call Sam back. Philip had gone for a walk, 'to clear his head' he had said. He promised he would not be long but it gave me the chance to speak with her undisturbed. My head was still aching, even though the lump had diminished considerably and I went to the cupboard for some more painkillers. I smiled sadly to...Read On

Anna and Sam Chapter 15

“Oh Anna, has it really come to this?” he whispered.

Although my eyes closed sleep did not find me. My head was pounding from a combination of hitting the door frame and the stress of what I had done. The room was dark and silent. I knew Philip was also not sleeping as I could not hear him breathe. I could sense more than feel his chest rising and falling but not like when he was asleep and it was occasionally interrupted by little jerks...Read On

Anna and Sam Chapter 14

"Do you remember our honeymoon, how hard it snowed the whole week?”

It was late when I finally decided to go home. I phoned Philip and he came to get me without even the tiniest grumble. When my Mum opened the front door for me and helped me down the step, I noticed that it had begun to snow and on the ground was a very thin layer where it had settled. I looked up into the dark night sky, watching the large white flakes fall gently upon my face, blinking...Read On

Anna and Sam Chapter 13

A girls best friend is her Mum...

When I was dressed and ready to leave, Philip came with me to the front door. "Are you sure you won't let me take you?" he asked sadly. I placed my finger on his lips and shook my head. "I have to go or I will miss the bus," I said gently and kissed him. "Please be careful," he answered. I smiled and turned and hobbled down the path. At the gate I stopped and waved, blowing him...Read On

Anna and Sam. Chapter 12

Anna goes home but why is the house in darkness?

After some considerable time Sam spoke without looking up at me. “What will we do?” she asked. “When?” I replied. “In the future. I don’t want to leave you because I don’t know when I will see you next.” I could feel something warm trickling between my thighs and pooling in the valley where my legs were together. "Sam,” I said, “Please don’t cry. There will be a way, you’ll see.” ...Read On

Anna and Sam Chapter 11

Anna visits Penny and finds out how close they really are.

At eleven, on the dot, Penny arrived. I kissed Philip goodbye and we left. I was so nervous I couldn't speak. I was looking forward to seeing Sam again but I felt bad about Philip, one was sort of cancelling out the other and as a result, I felt numb inside. When we arrived at Penny's she turned to me and said, "Are you okay, Honey?" "I don't know," I replied and looked down at...Read On

Anna and Sam. Chapter 10.

Anna realises how much she loves her husband but...

I spent the next hour or so looking around card shops, looking for a suitable card then went off to make arrangements for the evening. Eventually I sat down on a bench, exhausted and in pain. I guess I had done too much too soon. My ankle was throbbing so much it was making me feel sick. I called Philip and asked him to meet me at five and to park the car as we were not going straight home. ...Read On

Anna and Sam. Chapter 9

Anna confesses all to her best friend and fears her reaction...

Philip wasn't too long in getting ready and soon he reappeared to help me wash and dress. As before, he washed me carefully and tenderly, ensuring that I was perfectly clean with no area left untouched. It was so erotic, but there was to be no lovemaking this time, I was too upset about forgetting Valentines day and about Sam. I just had to get out of the house to try to undo some of the...Read On

Anna and Sam. Chapter 8.

Lies, damned lies and...

Helping me to my feet, Philip waited patiently whilst I got comfortable on my crutches then walked slowly ahead of me, making sure there were no chair legs to trip me up. As we passed the counter I paused and said to the waitress, “Sorry about the cup and thanks for this,” holding up my hand. “Oh don’t worry about the cup,” She answered, “and you are very welcome. I hope we see you...Read On

Anna and Sam. Chapter 7

Anna tries to act normally but who is she kidding? Herself?

“Philip, I…” “What?” He looked at me as if he was expecting rejection. “Nothing, Sweetheart. I am just not sure how we will do this.” “Don’t worry,” he smiled, “I won’t hurt you.” He leaned toward me then and kissed me. If I had doubts, they were all gone now. I wanted this, I wanted, no needed , him. I responded eagerly, feeling his morning stubble scratching me, my arms...Read On

Anna and Sam Chapter 6

At home, Anna begins to realise just what she has done...

It took a lot of effort to get out of the car and into the house. It was a very cold night but Philip had thought ahead and set the heating to come on before he came to get me so the house was cosy warm. “Why don’t you sleep downstairs tonight, love. You are too tired to negotiate the stairs in your condition. Worry about that tomorrow.” We lived in a dormer bungalow. The two main...Read On

Anna and Sam Chapter 5

Questions. Questions without answers as Anna is left alone again.

I stood for a moment watching the empty space she had left. What now? I looked around me. Strangely, the world around me was going on as normal. Nothing had changed and people were still going about their daily lives as if nothing had happened, which, of course, in the general scheme of things, nothing had happened but in my world a life changing event had happened. My world had stopped. ...Read On

Anna and Sam. Chapter 4

An interesting encounter and some heart searching questions to be answered

"That's fine," she replied and entered fully, closing... and locking, the door behind her. I stood in front of her and turned, first left then right so she would get the full effect of the beautiful blue and black lingerie from all angles. "If I may," she said before stepping forward. She adjusted the straps of the bra then ran her fingers around the sides and cups to check for fit. The...Read On

Anna and Sam Chapter 3

Anna comes to terms with her feelings.

When I arrived at the breakfast room, I paused, all the tables appeared to be taken. I saw one small table in the far corner which was available, so I headed immediately towards it and placed my key in the place setting. Almost immediately a young waitress approached me and asked, in a pleasant eastern European accent, whether I would like tea or coffee. "Coffee please," I said and, as...Read On

Anna and Sam Chapter 2

Sam learns about her true feelings and Anna just learns.

Sam responded by parting her ruby lips slightly and allowing my tongue to slip between them. I moved my tongue slowly along them, tasting her lipstick and enjoying the sensation of the smooth enamel of her perfect teeth which parted slowly and allowed me access to the hot moist interior of her mouth. Her warm tongue found mine and curled around it in a loving embrace. As our lips...Read On

A chance meeting waiting for a train...

I stood on the freezing platform waiting for my train, the breeze blowing around me was so cold that I went and sheltered by the lift, out of the wind. A young woman in her late twenties was also standing there. "That wind is cold," I said. "Yes," she replied, "I am frozen!" We got talking and she told me she was a buyer for a chocolate retailer and was going to a meeting in Birmingham...Read On

If Only...

Two mature ladies spend the day shopping. What could be wrong with that?

Nine o'clock Saturday morning. A comfortable armchair and my favourite ultra strong black coffee in my equally favourite coffee shop. I had come into town to meet my life long friend Mel. I had known her since she came to work with me some thirty years ago and we had become almost joined at the hip, in fact, I probably spent more time with her than with my husband, Alec. After being...Read On

Carla

A middle aged woman seeks shelter from the rain...

It was dark, wet and cold when Carla got into her car to drive home. She'd had a long day and she was tired and ready for bed. Her train had been delayed by 'leaves on the line' the conductor had said when he announced the reason that they had been standing for so long in the middle of nowhere. She had no idea why a few leaves could possible cause such a long delay. The next time he...Read On

My Lady's Chamber

When the Knight is gone...

Hanging on the walls in my home are two prints of paintings by Edmund Blair Leighton. 'The Accolade', and 'God Speed'. The Accolade depicts a man in chain mail being given ‘The Accolade’ of knighthood by a beautiful queen, with flowing red hair, in front of the throne in a medieval castle. God Speed depicts the same queen waving off another knight, perhaps her husband, to war in some far...Read On

It Cost a Coffee

One woman, strong black coffee and...

It had been a long, difficult day for the smartly dressed woman who stepped into her favourite coffee shop on the way home. As always, she used caffeine to unwind and she waited patiently in the queue at the counter waiting for her turn to be served. At last, although no more than a few minutes, the Barrista looked at her. “Good evening,” he smiled, recognising her instantly, “Black eye?” ...Read On

A chance encounter in a coffee shop leads an strange encounter

Author's note: To fully understand this story I recommend you first read 'The Red Dress'.  Sunday and I am working. Still, it could be worse. I have had a few days off and the weather is glorious. It is eight thirty in the morning, the sun is up and warm and I have a few minutes to spare, so a cup of coffee is what I need. Get the system started so to speak. On the station is a...Read On

The Red Dress

After a visit to a forties weekend, a married woman gets a big surprise.

Back in the spring, my husband and I went to visit a 1940’s Weekend. There were many people there dressed in the fashions and uniforms of the 1940’s. There were vehicles and stalls and it really was a wonderful weekend. An escape from the humdrum repetitiveness of my daily life. As I walked, arm in arm with my husband, Philip, I took in the sights, sounds and even tastes of the Forties....Read On

Catastrophe

A dark, wet night and a seemingly deserted farmhouse...

Autumn. Wet, windy and dirty. At least, that is how I see it. Leaves falling from the trees clutter up the drains and footpaths and look so untidy. It was a horrible, wet Autumn night that I was driving home from work in the early hours one Tuesday morning at the end of October. My route takes me across wild moorland roads and the rain was pouring down with a strong wind making the...Read On

My Aunt Chapter 3

Victoria is left to her own devices before a dinner party and an unfortunate mishap

True to her word, Aunt Helen allowed me to be alone for the rest of the afternoon. She had said that dinner would be served at six-thirty prompt, in the dining room but until then I was free to do as I pleased. I could rest or use the time to explore the house and grounds. She 'advised' most strongly, however, not to venture into the main part of the house. The soldiers there were...Read On

Victoria settles into her new home

The maid led me up the broad staircase and along an ornate, timber panelled landing until we reached a large oak door with a very heavy looking black iron handle. She opened the door and stood back to allow me inside. "This is your room, Miss Victoria," she said. I stepped inside and stopped dead in my tracks. The room was huge. There were two large windows in the opposite wall, the...Read On

May 1915. An orphaned Socialite is introduced to adulthood by her 'rich aunt'.

May 1915. I had been orphaned at the age of eighteen after my parents drowned when the Lusitania was torpedoed off the Irish coast.

Their first time

An argument, a walk on the beach, a chance encounter. It became... their first time.

"Damn you!" I shouted, "You are not going to spoil this holiday for me just because you cannot do what you want to!" I grabbed my cardigan and handbag and stormed out, slamming the front door behind me. I'd had enough of him for one morning. My husband, Philip had health problems which meant that sometimes he did not have the strength to walk far due to his extreme fatigue and difficulty...Read On

Coedwig Revealed

Anna finds the answer to her question.

I walked slowly back through the fields, wondering what the farmer's wife had meant: "Coedwig doesn't reveal herself without getting something in return." The words churned round and round in my head. Coedwig had asked for nothing. She even said I have nothing to fear. I didn't fear her but who was she? Why did she instil such fear into the farmer's wife? It seemed like no time at...Read On

A walk in the country and a chance encounter. Strange? oh yes.

Snowdonia. A truly magnificent part of Wales. Rugged peaks and deep valleys. Babbling brooks and roaring waterfalls. Green and grey, all at the same time. Whether washed by the pure rain, buried under feet of snow or drenched in glorious sunshine, this land of princes and castles, myths, legends and history dating back to the dawn of time, is simply breathtaking! My husband and I often...Read On

A Joint Adventure

A painful wrist leads to an interesting encounter

Last December, my husband and I enjoyed our usual Christmas break in Bavaria. I adore it there. Christmas is celebrated the way it should be. There is a air of joy, and Munich, although very busy, is just a very pleasant place to relax and enjoy the festivities. On our return, a Sunday, I had one day to relax before attending a hospital appointment for a consultation with a...Read On

Anna needs a new car but can she afford it?

Recently, Our BMW failed it's MoT test. It was nothing serious but it made us realise that old cars don't run forever. It was over fifteen years old and starting to show it's age. We had bought it whilst my husband was still able to work and had more money and now we couldn't afford to replace it with a new one. I still earn a good wage but not that much so we decided it was time to...Read On

A pretty young slave is punished for her attitude

Well, Lady. You have been somewhat moody with me lately and that is really not what I would expect from my favourite slave! As it is a nice, warm, evening I am going to wait until it gets dark and take you outside for your punishment. Into the woods, I think. I know just the place where we will not be disturbed and no-one will hear you, so come on, Lady, hurry up or I will smack that...Read On

What's in Store

Returning a faulty toy to the store could never be fun.......could it?

I bought a present for my niece’s birthday last week but when we gave it to her, it didn't work properly, so today... I took it back. The young lady on the customer service desk was about 22 and a really bubbly girl. So friendly, and I noticed, very pretty, with medium length blonde hair, lovely blue eyes, and a smile that would warm the coldest of hearts. She was dressed in the store...Read On

Run to the West Pt.3

Do Erika and Elsa escape or are they caught?

Erika Hoffmann spent the next day, Sunday, alone as Elsa was scheduled to work so she busied herself with cleaning and tidying her apartment. After she had gone she didn't want anyone saying she was dirty and untidy. She would probably never see Eisenach again but that didn't matter. Besides, she didn't want to stop and think about what may happen on Thursday. She would worry about that enough...Read On

Erika and Elsa find they are in love and plan their escape

Erika Hoffmann closed her arms even more tightly around her friend, her lover, and let the last vestiges of her orgasm slowly dissipate. So much emotion flooded through her, so much understanding of why she was still single and why Elsa Schröder was her only friend. Now she knew this moment had been destined from the start, maybe even why Helmut had been taken from her so cruelly. She...Read On

Run to the West Pt. 1

Two friends on the wrong side of the fence become inseperable.

Erika Hoffmann was afraid as she walked through the dark, rain soaked streets of Eisenach, a small town just inside the border of East Germany. She should not have been out at this hour, ninety minutes after the curfew of ten o’clock which had been imposed in January. The soviet rulers had been worried about people attempting to escape to the west and if she was caught by the Stasi who...Read On

Two women meet for the first time and become more than just friends

It was a beautiful, hot summer afternoon, just after midday as I strolled through the trees. The sunlight fell though the branches in beams, shimmering through the leaves as they moved gently in the light breeze. Beneath my feet the dead twigs cracked and rustled as I walked, deep in thought. I should have been happy but even though the sun was bright and warming, and the birds twittered...Read On

Happy Birthday, Anna?

“Good morning, Anna.” Her voice seemed inside my head as I gently awoke from a dreamless sleep. It seemed ethereal and yet it was real. “Good morning, Alice.” I replied without opening my eyes, her perfect, soothing voice had no discernible accent and spoke with perfect intonation. “It is a beautiful morning. Should I draw the curtains?” Alice asked. I opened my eyes then and replied, ...Read On

Valentine's Wish

A wish for you, my love

The candle flickers warmly, shadows cast around, The small square table laid for two, red petals too, abound. Beyond the wicker barrier, across the soft white strand, The white flecked breakers trip and fall and hiss along the sand. High above, the firmament, tiny dots of light, The moon herself is smiling, shimmering so bright. And all about, the tiny sparks, like ashes in the air, ...Read On

I love you

I have never met you and fear I never will, And yet, it seems, I love you so, a love so deep and real.

I always said I'd be okay, if ever we should end, As long as we were talking, then I'd always be your friend. But then, one day, you said goodbye, explained,...Read On

The Last Flight. Chapter 3

Karen is put to the test

My heart leapt into my mouth. The engine was ablaze! “Don't worry, Sir.” I spoke as calmly as I could, my training coming to the fore, “The pilots will be aware and able to take care of that.” I drew the curtain across the window and walked quickly to the cockpit, totally aware that the passenger would have drawn it back again as soon as my back was turned. As I suspected, the pilots...Read On

Karen gets her own back

I stood alone at the rear of the cabin. All was well, the constant drone of the engines and the vague vibrations, as well as the sudden slight jolts and movements because of the the changes in air pressure outside, went largely unnoticed. They were all part of my daily life as a stewardess. I busied myself with cleaning the crockery and cutlery, stowing it away until needed. The flight...Read On

The Last Flight

Air Stewardess Karen embarks on a flight to remember.

“Good morning, Karen.” I turned and saw the suave middle aged pilot approaching me, along with his co-pilot, strolling nonchalantly across the departure lounge. “Ah, good morning Captain Anderson,” I replied, flashing him my sweetest smile. “A beautiful morning.” “Yes, it is indeed,” he agreed. “Should be a good flight.” I had been a stewardess for six years and I loved every minute...Read On

Coedwig Challenged

Coedwig faces a challenge when in an unusually warm Bavaria

For December, the weather was very mild, especially for Bavaria. At this time of year there is normally snow or, at least, icy weather but this year the temperature was much too high even for frost. Even so, it is still a beautiful place to be. The fields are green and the pine trees still have their needles. Even the mountains of the Alps are resplendent in their nakedness, grey and...Read On
