allison felt awkward as jared lay beside her after friends left their room at the hotel. they were celebrating their high school graduation at santa cruz beach boardwalk and amusement park.

jared whispered softly that it was time to take their relationship further. he kissed her and one thing led to another until it finally happened. tears rolled down her eyes. “i’m so sorry,” he said, wiping them away gently.

“jared, dear, where do we go from here?” she asked as she snuggled close to him. but there was no response. jared was already off to la-la land, snoring deeply.

      that’s very true. then again, to get laid, a guy would always say whatever she wanted to hear.

      it pays not to give in too soon. once a guy gets what he wants, he falls asleep fast.

    She’s definitely in la-la land if she thinks he’s interested in going anywhere other than where he is. All too real, Plaridel. Good job.

      in this case, allison has been had. the sooner she realizes it, the better it would be for her sanity.

    dear plaridel,

    at least he didn’t light a cigarette afterward. jared’s mind is definitely between his legs.

    shalom,

    I have a feeling it was a good thing she stopped him. He doesn’t seem too serious about her. Ha ha.

    Well done. That’s not a happy ending; quite the contrary. But at least she didn’t kill him. There’s been a lot of that lately.

      while asleep and totally exposed, she could have hit (cut) him where it hurt using a knife or a pair of scissors. πŸ™‚
