Finishing What They Started

Monique had just taken off her dressing-gown and was about to get dressed when the door opened and Shane walked in, bold as brass. "Who gave you permission to just walk into my room?" she demanded, hands on hips.  In the past, she would have covered up to hide her curves but that was before …

In a haze of smoke, she appeared unexpectedly, like a thief in the night, beautiful, exotic and mysterious. She came towards me as in a dream. I stood there, helpless, unable to resist.
