Unfortunately, it was a prized yet tainted possession she could not share with anyone It was a hot summer afternoon and Jackie was driving home from work for a late day lunch.

She rounded the corner looking for a parking spot in front of her house. A block away and she was talking to herself, "Come on, give me a spot, gosh it is so hot, 98 degrees and no mercy A block from home and up a steep hill in the heat and in heels.

She started the slow walk in the heat and oppressive humidity. As she approached her home, she saw a man sitting on the front step of her or her neighbor's house. She could not tell which one. The neighborhood was not one for vagrants. Her neighbors were all fairly good about looking out for each other, questioning strangers and sending them on their way. Today, nobody was about.

The last thing she needed was to confront a strange man while alone. As Jackie "Mature is the center of attention" closer she was overcome by a sense of relief. The man was Ellis, her neighbor's 25 year old son. He was no stranger.

Maybe its time for a message at the spa If its not working, I'll stop," he assured her. Ellis placed his strong masculine hands on Jackie's shoulders before she could respond.

Ellis was about a head taller than Jackie. He was a good looking man by all standards. The flattery had built his ego but he was not outwardly cocky, just modest and self assured.

Of all his traits, self assurance shined through the most, after they got past his looks. Jackie stood slightly unnerved. She did not want to insult Ellis by turning down his offer. The thought of her and this young man alone in her house Jackie and Vance Harrison had been married for 23 years.
