KITTY'S APARTMENT -
was wonderful," Kitty Benedict sighed breathlessly as she lit a cigarette
and rolled over in bed to face her lover. "You just never cease to
"So they say," Dane
Manchester laughed as he wrapped his arm around her and drew her close.
"You were pretty outstanding, yourself."
"I aim to please,"
she smiled slyly and rested her head on his strong chest. "Dane, I
never believed that things could be so wonderful between us. Do you know
that I live for the few stolen nights that we share?"
I do, too!" he exclaimed with a grin. Of course, he really didn't,
but it was more than enough of a reason to get away from his wife for a
night. Besides, Kitty was very attractive and quite the tigress in bed.
"I just wish that we
could spend every night together like this." She took a long drag off
of her cigarette and exhaled slowly. "We're so magical when we're
"If you say so," he
muttered and then turned to look at the clock that sat on the nightstand.
"Darling, I really hate to cut this wonderful evening short, but I do have
to head home. The little wife is bound to be pacing the floors wondering
where I am."
"I thought you said that
she didn't matter?" She sat up, holding the sheet to cover herself,
and watched him as he slipped from her bed and began to dress.
"She doesn't," he
said as he slipped on his pants and pulled on his shirt. "But, she is
"Are you sure you need to
drive in this weather?" After stubbing out her cigarette, she reached
for her peignoir, slipped it on, got out of bed, and began to follow him around
the darkened bedroom. "It's almost a blizzard out there. I'm
sure that the roads are dangerous."
"Oh, they can't be that
bad." He let out a slight chuckle and slipped on his socks and
shoes. "I'll be fine."
Kitty stood with her arms
folded across her chest and watched him maneuver around the room. As she
bit her lip with apprehension, she began to wonder if she should say what was
on her mind. Should she start pressing him for something more?
"Okay, what's that look
for?" Dane asked as he walked over to her and placed a gently finger under
"Darling, if you're so
unhappy in your marriage..." Her voice trailed off as she considered
how she should voice her thoughts. "If you're so unhappy with
your wife, why don't you divorce her?"
"Well, it's a little
complicated," he sighed. "And, besides, there's really no reason
to. I do whatever I want to. I see whomever I want to. It's
too much trouble to go through. The only reason I can think of to get a
divorce would be if I wanted to marry someone else." He let out a
laugh at the thought. "And, trust me, another marriage is the last
thing I want. I don't think I'm ever going to make that mistake
"Oh," Kitty muttered
and hung her head. "I...I can see...your point." As she
watched him slip on his coat, she thought about how charming and how handsome he
was. He had a mischievous gleam in his eye and a wicked smile that
affected her in ways that she couldn't describe. She found him very
attractive. Of course, his sizable bank account was rather alluring, as
well. "When can I see you again?"
"Soon," he nodded as
he opened the door. "We'll get together again, soon."
After the door had closed
behind him, Kitty sunk down onto the bed and let out a heavy sigh. Handsome,
wealthy Dane Manchester was definitely someone she saw herself having a long,
long relationship with. However, there was only one problem---his
wife! As she lit another cigarette, Kitty began to wonder exactly what it
would take to get him to leave his wife for good.
