Welcome to the 85th week of My Sexy Saturday.
This week’s theme is Their Sexy Talk and it’s all about how lovers talk to each other. We know you've noticed it. Whenever you get into a room of people, where there are other couples, notice how they talk to each other. Sometimes you can tell when there’s tension, other times you wonder just what makes them so happy and there are others still when their happiness is practically contagious.
From Love Remains
“You and your wife didn’t plan to have children?”
Her question jolted him. My wife and I? “We—you and I—planned on having children, only not as soon. But when the doctor confirmed our little stick was right, we were ecstatic. We fell in love with our baby in an instant.” He opened the driver’s side and put one foot on the concrete garage floor. “Let’s talk about this over dinner. Can you smell it?”
She too stepped out of the vehicle. “I haven’t had a home-cooked meal in a long time. It smells delicious. I’m starving.”
Before he reached the garage side door leading into the house, she stopped him. “Where did we meet?”
One hand on the doorknob, he smiled at the fond memory. “In the campus library, by the entrance there was a huge photocopier. You came in and scanned the room as if searching for someone. When I saw you, I said something like, ‘How can a man concentrate with so many girls around? What a gorgeous girl.’”
A grin lit her pretty face. “That was you?”
Tom gasped and hope kindled in him. “You remember?”
“I remember someone said those words, but that was it. I never dated the guy or knew who said it. Until now.”
“You gave me the dirtiest look ever and left. I ran after you and we had a coffee in the cafeteria.”
“See? In my life I walked away. Our stories differ. I am not your wife, but I’ll pretend to be until this is over.”
At his sigh of exasperation, she pursed her lips. How he yearned to kiss them. Her soft yet eager lips pressed against his throat and trailing down his chest during their last lovemaking, flashed in his memory. He wrapped her in his embrace and pulled her to him. “I don’t want you to pretend.”
His lips crushed hers and she welcomed him with her warmth and a soft moan, leaning into him. Her hungry kiss reminded him of their first date when he’d taught her the difference between lust and love. He pulled away, and judging by her pouty lips and closed eyes, he left her wanting more. “Why are we standing here in the freezing garage? Let’s go in.”
He opened the door, letting the aroma of the tarragon and sweet onion he used in the stew linger in the air and make his mouth water. Sounds of cartoons coming from the television set mixed with the piercing noises of Milo’s toys.
Olivia unzipped her long coat. “Don’t you think it’s ironic?”
He narrowed his gaze. Uh-oh, would her story differ from his again? “What is?”
“Couples usually meet on single’s cruise or at weddings, and you and me next to the Xerox machine.”
Blurb: Olivia Owen, a busy, single, high-functioning, corporate executive officer, is not afraid to die a spinster for the sake of her career. But in an alternate reality world, bridged by the angel of her Down’s syndrome sister, she meets Tom Medar, a dedicated, Croatian defense attorney who dreams of the right woman, but never has time to find her. Together they foil an adulterous murder plot while discovering there’s room for love and family in their busy lives—but not before they are separated again.
When they awaken from their alternate world, will they be able to cross countries to find each other again?
