“Sudah is the last person to ever be scared of.” Matt knew how gentle and kind his wife was.
“Okay ladies,” the chief entered the room. “There‘s a tropical storm moving in. I need you to be extra careful and keep an eye on your TAWS.” Each chopper was outfitted with a terrain awareness and warning system as well as GPS, absolute necessities when flying in inclement weather. “I don‘t want any incidents out there.”
The weather service was predicting an active storm and hurricane season through the summer. This storm was just the first of many.
“You and me both.” Tony muttered under his breath.
Both Frankie and Matt hid their grins at Tony‘s comment.
“I‘m serious.” The chief scowled at Tony. “Frank, Chris is going to be riding with you today. Just remember, the barometer‘s gone crazy and there are winds of 60-miles-per-hour.”
Frank and Chris were sent out to move a critical heart patient from the Outer Banks to a trauma center inland. The patient, a 53-year old man, needed pacing as they transferred him from the barrier reef‘s hospital unit.
Matt and Tony were toned out to a motorcycle accident on the mainland‘s coastal highway. As they were getting ready to land at the LZ, Matt could see the fast moving storm clouds and lightning flashes that were headed their way. He made up his mind to move the patient as quickly as possible or they might not be able to lift off at all.
The young man had taken his bike down on the normally busy highway; it was empty thanks to the high winds and storm warnings. The motorcycle crashed into a thicket of trees and neatly wrapped itself around one tall Magnolia. The cyclist was about 80-feet down the road against a guardrail, the first trooper on the scene had to scan…

page 69 theory – Final Sin

There is a theory that if you pick up a book and turn to page 69, you will know if the book is interesting or not

p 69

Long ago after his ex-wife’s damning condemnation of him as a lover, Jake had made it a point to learn how to satisfy his partner before meeting his own needs. Too embarrassed to speak to friends about his failure as a husband and a lover, Jake secretly read a bunch of erotic romances and then tried the techniques one by one. That was why he originally sought to satisfy Julie in front of the mirror. The fire in her eyes mesmerized him and the need to see that fire over and over again became singularly important.

She rested her head on his shoulder and they fell asleep together. During the night, Jake woke her by planting delicate kisses along her spine. He watched as the flame kindled in her eyes and they made love again. Afterwards, when they held each other closely, they could hear the combined beating of their hearts as if it were a well-rehearsed melody lulling them once again to sleep.

And when they made love yet again in the morning light, Jake realized that his thirst for her seemed unquenchable.


Jake was buttoning his pants as he came into the kitchen. Julie had her back to him and didn’t hear his barefooted approach. He found it hard to accept that someone could be so beautiful, but she was.

“Hi.” He nuzzled her neck and surprised her. Jake slipped his hand inside her terry robe and gently caressed a breast. “I wish I didn’t have to go to work.”

Julie chuckled and turned in his arms. Her robe fell open. “But you do… and I have to go to work later as well.” She pressed her breasts against his showerdamp and hair-roughened chest. “But, oh, you are making it seem so tempting.”

Jake inhaled deeply. “Keep doing that and it will be your fault if I go in late. Or if I have the energy to go in at all.” It amazed him, it hadn’t been that long since he had been with a woman and yet his desire for Julie had yet to be assuaged. He bent to suckle a breast.

“Your coffee is going to get cold.” Julie was already breathless.

She had come into the kitchen to make him coffee and toast while he showered. He still had to stop at his place for a change of clothes before going into work. Neither of them had expected to want each other again so soon.

“You are anything but cold, my love. And you are much more desirable than a cup of coffee right now.” He drew a nipple deeply between his lips while he gently kneaded her other breast with his palm.
