Last chance to get When Jerry Met Ali for free at Smashwords. Only one day left to go.
The thing that Alison said about our lives inevitably diverging soon had really struck a chord. I didn’t know where my life would take me from here, but chances are that I would never get another offer like this. Not with two people that I knew. There were plenty of pitfalls, but really all the risk was on their side. It was their relationship, not mine. They would have to carry any potential guilt with them, not me. I wasn’t asking for this. They were.
That night, I invited Alison to my room to discuss further. The mood got serious quickly.
“I’ve been thinking about your proposal, and I wanted to ask some questions.”
“Have either of you done this before?”
“No, but we have talked about it. We haven’t talked about you. This was my idea, not Jeremy’s.”
“Is he rough?”
“Oh god no! He takes his time, and he’s gentle, that’s kind of his hook.”
I thought about that and smiled. “Thank you. You’ve given me a lot to think about.” I mulled over the idea for a few more days. I didn’t consider myself a prude. I loved sex and had missed not having anyone in my life recently. And it didn’t make it any easier seeing Alison so clearly smitten with Jeremy, who, I must admit, was quite the catch. And now that Alison had put the offer on the table, I could finally admit to myself something that I had been denying for quite some time that, in all honesty, I really wanted to fuck him.
