It was a good analogy and Cassie felt more at ease knowing that as David disappeared below decks.

Cassie soon got the hang of things and was starting to enjoy the experience. She forgot all about the time. Even Sandy hadn’t entered her mind. When David returned some twenty five minutes later he was in his swimming trunks told her that lunch was now served. “But first we are going for a swim he told her. He stopped the boat and then dropped anchor.

David came up behind her and pointed to the shoreline. “There’s Amble over there. He dropped the ladder over the side of the boat so they could climb back on board and asked her to go below to change.

When Cassie re-immerged she was wearing a white swimsuit. Her figure was immaculate, she looked beautiful even in her swim hat and David tried not to stare at her. She in turn looked at him; he was tanned and she thought that he’d obviously spent a lot of time in the sun. He had an athletic body with no body fat at all. His legs were muscular and long. He stood just over six feet in his bare feet. He took her by the hand then he ran and jumped over the side. They both hit the water with a splash and Cassie stroked out a little from him. Her stroke was smooth and steady as he swam towards her. They were now 200 yards from the boat and were now treading water.

“You’re still good swimmer Cassie, I was hard pushed to keep up with you.’

The water was surprisingly refreshing as Cassie lay on her back and just floated.

“I can see that you are not happy, would you like to tell me about it. I mean… if you think that I’m prying just tell me to mind my own business.’

Finally Cassie looked at David and said I think my marriage is over.’

“What makes you think that way?’

“Well Sandy and I have not been getting along for a while now; he drinks a lot and has changed towards me.’ He is cold and shows me no affection.’

“I see, is this because of his golf or do you suspect that he’s having an affair.’

“I don’t know about an affair but he is going to see other women for services, I obviously am not enough for him and cannot give him what he wants.’ David came to her and took her face in his hands so they were both looking at each other now. “If you ever need me I’m here for you Cassie, I wish I’d met you years ago. If you only knew how I felt about you then.’ I didn’t have the courage to ask you out.’

“I wish you had of David.’

“You wouldn’t have had anything to do with me then I thought.’

“You never asked so how do you know.’

“Look Cassie, I know that you are going through a rough patch at the moment and I don’t want to be the one to wreck a marriage. I’ve had it done to me and it’s not nice. I was in a bad place for a long
