“Did you hear that old bag in there said Beverly as she put her change in her purse.’

 Just ignore her Bev,’ she doesn’t know anything

“They walked down the street eating the fish and chips; she was right about one thing though said Shirley, “you cannot beat fish and chips out of newspaper.’


Beverly turned the key in the door to her flat and then asked them all to be quiet as Mrs Junghans up stairs would complain about the noise.’

They dumped the paper from their supper in the bin in the scullery then Beverly showed Shirley where there other bedroom was and Shirley led Simmy towards it.

My room is over here said Beverly as she walked towards it then turned on the light.

Richard followed her in then got her up against the bedroom wall which had a distinct flower pattern on it.’ His hands unbuttoned the white blouse and it fell to the floor as he was kissing her neck then her lips he felt her gasp as he lifted her skirt and his hand travelled inside the panties that she was wearing. She was shaven he thought as he explored the inside of her thighs. He could feel Beverly getting more and more aroused as she unbuttoned his shirt and her hands ran through the dark curls of hair on Richards chest. He picked her up in his arms as his trousers fell to the floor he had taken out the foiled wrap from his pocket and slid it onto his swollen member and he held her with one arm as he slid his underpants down then got between her legs as they enfolded him. He slid inside her and she gasped again she held onto him with both arms around his neck as he unhooked her bra in one swift movement and her large rounded breasts were revealed to him. Instinctively his mouth took one of the hardened nipples and he sucked and licked it with overwhelming passion. It had been so long since he had made love to such a beautiful woman. Richard wanted it to last forever but as they climaxed together his legs began to shudder and his arms seemed to lose their strength. He could feel the trembling of Beverly’s body as wave after wave of orgasmic pleasure went through her. This was the first time that she’d ever felt so fulfilled by a man and she was glad that it was Richard. Her wait was now over and she had made love to the man of her dreams. Richard eased her down so that her feet were now onto the carpet. He withdrew from her then pulled up his underpants and trousers before finding the toilet which she told him was outside.

He washed himself then returned to the bedroom. Beverly lay naked upon her bed and he gazed down upon her. Richard thought that his wife had an okay figure when they first had got together. Connie wasn’t a passionate lover. She made love more out of a sense of duty rather than pleasure. Yes she had bore him three children but there was no passion, no lust, and no excitement. Beverly was everything his wife wasn’t and he dreaded going back to his own house and lying with Connie.

“I must go he told Beverly.’ I have work in the morning.’

“Will I see you tomorrow; please say yes Ritchie.’

“Alright where do you want to go?’

“Nowhere; I want you here in my bed with me.’

“What time would you like me to come around?

“As soon as you can Ritchie I don’t want to waste a minute.’

“Okay I will be here at seven alright.’

“Yes that’s fine.’

Richard put on his shirt and tie then got his jacket he leaned over and kissed her so tenderly. He turned away from her knowing if he gazed upon her again he would never leave. He gently closed the door on his way out.
