“Are you sure, I mean you know you said you wanted to wait until you are married before doing it.’

“The time is right; I have prayed for us.

Doug held her and then kissed her neck then her lips; he took his time and didn’t rush Paula who was shaking. They got into bed together and Doug stroked her softly. She responded to his touch, her body felt strange things were going on that she had never experienced before her body tingled as Doug gently stroked and caressed her and she felt the hardness of his torso as he lay on top of her then there was pain at first as he entered her and she met his thrusts. She moaned with pleasure as there love making intensified. It was then she knew there would be no other man for her than Doug as she whispered in his ear “I love you my darling.’ I am now complete.’

When they had satisfied each other she rested her head on his chest and fell asleep.


She awoke feeling refreshed and like a new woman; they made love in the shower then got dressed and went down to breakfast. Paula wondered if Mrs Shotton could tell that they had made love but there was no indication on her face. When they were finished eating breakfast Doug and Paula just sat staring into each others eyes.’

When Mrs Shotton removed the plates she said “Ah young love’s dream

It is marvellous.’

Paula and Dougie returned home later that day and that night they spent the whole night in bed together where they made love.

Ron Lee packed a case with his wife Sally as they made ready to fly to Newcastle they were flying first class and the seating was far more comfortable than the economy seating. Ron had rang his housekeeper to get the house ready for them when they arrived.

Ron would not wear trousers and stuck with his Levi jeans and a pair of platform soled boots he wore a white tee shirt and his black leather jacket.’

He had a gold ring in the shape of a snakes head and two rubies in the eyes on his little finger. There was gold Rolex watch on his wrist and a gold cross around his neck that weighed half an ounce. Sally was wearing a blue dress she had a diamond necklace worth $200.000 dollars round her neck and a four carat diamond ring on her finger of her left hand next to her eighteen carat gold wedding ring. She had ladies gold Rolex watch on too that was engraved on the back just like her husbands with the words “true love never dies on it.’

The five hour flight on the concord jet aircraft felt a smooth as silk; you would hardly know that you were flying.

Ron was reading the newspapers as Sally looked through several women’s magazines.

They ate the meal on board which wasn’t bad for aircraft food. Sally drank several martinis and Ron Jack Daniels and coke.

“When the plane landed they got their luggage. A car was waiting to drive them to his house.

“When they got there Molly Higgins’ welcomed them. “ I am pleased to meet you Mrs Lee said Molly.’

Oh please dispense with the formalities, its Sally okay.’

“Thank you Sally if the place isn’t warm enough for you I will put on a fire.’

There is food in the cupboards and fresh meat, cheeses and milk in the fridge.’

“Thank you Molly.’

We will be going out later as I think we are meeting his friends for a meal in Tynemouth; I think he said. How far is that from here?

Not very far Sally; you will love it here we have so much history here.’
