SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY - May 1



Our contribution this week is from I.O.U. SEX:


June is getting ready to go to Denny's garage as the first step in making contact with him.


Showered, buffed, and lotioned, June spritzed perfume over her naked body. I'll wear my most expensive lace bra and panties, she thought, though no one but me will know; they'll give me confidence. She took extra time with her hair, sweeping it behind her ears the way Denny used to like it. Shithead Stan said older women shouldn't wear their hair long, but she still thought shoulder length suited her best. She rejected her ex-husband's opinion as just one more of his many chauvinistic ideas and wondered why she'd tolerated him as long as she had. The day she and Stan parted, she'd decided to let her hair grow long again, her first act of defiance in years.

  10. When a woman realizes she is her own person, it is a wonderful thing. Part of that discovery is taking extra special care of herself. This is a great scene displaying the butterfly emerging from her chrysalis.
