Hello and welcome to another excerpt from I.O.U. Sex. After decades apart, June and Denny have just finished having lunch together at a Dallas Mexican restaurant. Will this reignite the heat that once simmered between them, a heat that rivaled the hot salsa on the table? Or will June’s long-held secret cool their ardor?
Denny's voice interrupted her thoughts. "I'm glad you came by today. I've enjoyed our lunch and I'd like to see you again. Real soon."
June was surprised at how much that pleased her. "I'd like that too."
God help me, it's almost as if we've never been apart.
She arranged her utensils neatly across her plate, avoiding Denny's eyes. "It's amazing, isn't it? So much time has passed since we've seen each other, and yet—"
Denny interrupted and it seemed as if he'd been reading her mind. "And yet here we are, talking like we've never been apart." He stood and then turned to give June his hand, helping her out of the booth. He continued to hold her hand all the way to the car.
That evening June sipped a glass of Chardonnay and mused about lunch. When Daisy jumped into her lap, demanding attention, June scratched the dog's ears, her thoughts far away.
"Sweet Daisy, is this whole thing a mistake? Let's face it, girl, I'm afraid. After getting rid of Stan, I thought I was through with drama in my life."
Daisy jumped to the floor and turned in a circle before settling at June's feet.
"I'm nuts, aren't I? Talking out loud to a dog and worrying about something that hasn't happened yet and may never happen at all."
How could she explain it all to Denny? Would he believe her? Would he even remember that life-changing time?
Everyone remembers their teenage years, but will June’s memories destroy her future?
