Welcome to the 88th week of My Sexy Saturday.
This week’s theme is Sexy’s Got You, Babe and is based upon the old Sonny and Cher song, I’ve Got You, Babe. This is all about the lovers who are always there for each other. Rent’s due, no money yet they have each other; life’s throwing them a curve ball, they have each other; job expectations aren't panning out yet they still have each other. You get the idea. Their external odds maybe be insurmountable, or seem that way, yet they have one another held firmly in their love.
Cindy barely glanced her way and continued to gawk at Tom, whose initial smile vanished, replaced by a frown. Great! Another woman drooling over Tom. Olivia yanked the washed-out, folded fabric from nurse’s hands. “My husband is not your patient. I am. I’m right here and I can speak and change myself.”
“Oh, in that case, I’ll be back in a moment. Please make sure your wife is ready.” Cindy coughed in her fist and her cheeks blushed. She left the room.
“Mrs. Medar, if I didn't know you better, I’d say you’re jealous.” Tom winked at Olivia. “Don’t worry. I only have eyes for you.”
“Me jealous?” Though she must admit, her lashing out at the nurse was an emotional
display, but Tom didn't need to know this. “The nurse couldn't be less professional if she wanted.”
“Could be worse, the hospital staff work long shifts. Cindy is trying hard to be pleasant.” He stood when Olivia slid the curtain open. “Do you need help getting to the changing room?”
“I can manage.” She stepped into the narrow bathroom. Hell, her broom closet was
bigger than this. In haste, she unbuttoned her shirt. She removed her blouse and trousers
then slipped on the hospital gown. Light blue was not her color. The two sets of strings
on the back of the gown presented a challenge, but she managed to tie them with some elaborate twisting.
“Mr. Medar? Or can I call you Tom?” Cindy’s sugar-laced voice drifted to Olivia through the closed curtain. “Your wife is not ready yet? Cold day today, isn't it? Getting ready for Christmas?”
Olivia snapped the curtain open. Tom turned to her. A smile lit his face, replacing his bored expression.
“If she’s ready, we can proceed,” the nurse said, twirling a few strands of her streaked blonde hair around her finger. When Olivia nodded, she pushed a wheelchair next to the bed. “Can she sit here?”
Olivia stared at her transportation. “I need a moment alone with my husband.”
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?
