Keeper of the KiltedKinsmen
During the evening meal Snug was sitting with her son and he played with his dinner, "I havent heard from my mother."
Jeffery looked up from his book and blinked, "what popped that into your head?"
"All the fathers and mothers we documented today, I realized mum has been gone almost four weeks, she said she would drop Mary and I a note after their
first stop. According to her schedule they should have been able to drop a letter to Charlie by now."
"Do you have reason to be concerned?"
"No, Mary said she has traveled with this man previously and never was an issue, but with the state of the outside world today one cannot help but
"Oh I think your mother would surprise you at the strength of her character to handle whatever life my pass before her. After she let you learn and grow
and follow your father to the ends of the earth and more so. And to decide while she thought she was dying to travel to this jungle home and find her only
Snug nodded but said nothing.

To come up with something... ;)
Fayde swam in the waters of the pond it was
nice to be free from the clinic, two full days and nights was more than what she wanted to spend. But she took those
precautions because it was far better safe than sorry. As she floated in the water her gaze drifted to the falls, there
she saw a figure in the mist. "I need to go back to sleep"
Fayde yelped and splashed out of the water,
"ok hearing and seeing things now… really need to go back to bed."
The figure is now standing before her, solid,
smiling, Fayde was frowning and holding her towel in front of her body.
"You are so strong, so
Fayde shook her head and muttered, "Ok
I've finally cracked and all that foolishness Snug has spouted for years is seeping out." She tried to turn
but felt the warm caress on her cheek, "she saw in you before you saw in yourself. She will need you - your
"What about my daughters! Are they in danger?" Fayde would talk to a ghost to protect her babies.
"Your daughters will bring you untold joy
and pride- relax and open your mind to new ideas. I have come to you not to prove her beliefs, but to see yours
strengthen. Open up to all that is around you blessed mother - your mind so willing to see, touch and feel, so should
Fayde snorted and began to dress; she was not
going to talk to a deity naked. "Look Snug has her thing and I've got mine, we've figured out how to make
it work for us. Go annoy her, as long as my girls are safe that is all I worry about - that and Jack."
"Ah the mate."
Fayde paused and looked at the smiling figure
before her, "I am not having this conversation"
"You win, healer, but head my words, that
strength will be tested, and you will find that reserve deep within yourself. In spite of all you think you know - it
will be there. Remember my words."
Fayde opened her eyes and smiled, there was
Eden's small face hovering over her own, "I fell asleep! Thank goodness"
"Right here, where is your
father? And El?"
"Right here sleeping beauty; had to make
a pit stop and someone's dress got caught."
Fayde smiled as she saw the tell tale signs of
recent tears on her daughter's face; she opened her arms and held both girls close. "so what do we get to do
"Dinner!" smiled her
girls. Fayde gathered her things and accepted the warm arm around her from her husband.
Their daughters ran before them chasing butterflies and each other. When they arrived at their home, Fayde
looked at her family. The girls just ran inside Jack held his wife back a minute then they opened the door. She was shocked, the main room was decorated the table was covered with the meal, and the girls stood grinning holding up pictures
they had painted.
What is all this?"
"We missed you and we wanted to do
"Wow" smiled Fayde she sat down, and
listened as her daughters talked of the last two days, the pictures they painted and all the goodies they asked Unka John to cook for them. Fayde happily accepted the pictures and hung them up; the family sat down and enjoyed their meal.
The girls talked through the entire meal, even when dad and mom insisted that their plates be cleaned before the large cake was cut.
The cake was cut and Fayde was just about to
ask for coffee when a quiet knock on the door was heard, 'mon in!" came the little voice. Fayde smiled knowing
that habit, "Alish?"
"Hi Aunt Fayde!" she smiled,
"Daddy made caffey!"
"Did he share?"
"No he brung it - " she pointed to
the rest of her family making their way toward the hut. She turned to her husband, "alone?"
He shrugged, "the girls invited Alish,
and Nodin - and well since they don't go places without Mom and Dad…"
Fayde smiled, "OK. Let's get this
Everyone enjoyed John's cake and coffee,
when the children started to fight sleep the adults gathered them up and headed home. John had both children in his
arms and started toward home, Fayde held up Snug, "we need to talk"
Fayde hesitated then blurted "I think I
dreamed or saw your - you know..."
You dreamed of Deka, were you in her meadow? What did she say?"
"Tomorrow - this is your
Snug just smiled and headed home. Fayde closed the door and leaned her head against its surface; it was if all her energy just drained out of her. "Sweetheart?"
Fayde turned to see Jack standing in the
doorway between the rooms; he had drops of water on his chest, "bathe the girls?"
"Mostly, they are waiting for mama to
finish up and tuck them in."
Fayde smiled and headed toward their room,
Jack said nothing and went to his room… Fayde finished the bath, tucked in the girls then sat down and brushed aside Eden's bangs, "you both did a
great job tonight. Mommy was so excited dinner was very good."
"Unka John cooked it."
"But you planned it, and worked hard on
those pretty pictures."
The girls smiled, "Story"
Fayde began, "there were two beautiful
girls who lived on a big ship-"
"Like Daddy's now hush or that's
The girls snuggled into their beds and
smiled. Fayde continued, "On their big ship they sailed the sea so blue.
The places they saw and the people they met - but do you know what their favorite place was?"
"No" the girls giggled.
"It was their home in the trees, tucked
away from everyone, where they could run, and jump and play and pick pretty flowers. They got to swim under the falls
and eat all the fruit they wanted."
"Fruit because the girls were very very
good and never gave their parents a moment's worry. Every night when they laid in their beds their eyes closed, and
their bodies rested. And they slept the peaceful sleep of children."
Fayde stood and covered her babies; she took a
minute to watch them sleeping so peacefully. Tenderly she touched their heads, tenderly stroking their hair, how
different they were, and yet some days they were so much alike. Fayde then made her way toward her bed, she started
stripping away her clothes as she went, her body and mind were shutting down and sleeping in her own bed was something she was definitely looking forward
to. She moved aside the curtain and stopped dead in her tracks, "What - what is all this?"
Jack smiled the room was bathed in soft candle
light and Jack lay on the bed sporting only a smile, "The girls aren't the only ones who missed you.' The
fatigue that she felt suddenly lifted and she slowly peeled away the rest of her clothing and watched as her husband's eyes danced across more and more
exposed flesh. When she was as bare as he she slid onto the bed and into his arms.
Here Fayde knew there was no question, she knew his body and he knew hers. Their hands were light but
demanding, their kisses were hot and tender each on the edge of greedy became one. Jack hissed in the delight at the
sensation of being surrounded by his wife's intimate flesh. Fayde's breath was on his chest, it was quick like
his own then as if coordinated they began to move together, few words were needed between them, yes, more, there and praises to god were the only coherent
phrases they exchanged. Bathed in a light sheen they held on to each other,
complete, whole and fulfilled, Fayde's hands danced up and down her husband's back still moving with his shortened breath, "you all right?"
she whispered and kissed the sweet spot of his neck and collar bone.
"As soon as I can breath again I'll
Two days (and nights) later things settled
back into a routine, Cort was going through the infirmary's supplies and found they were low on a few roots. He was
about to gather a pack and head out when Fayde walked in, "so any big plans tonight?"
"You're off - you've been manning
the hut for the last two days so I could take a break, I agreed to stick around tonight."
"Oh, actually I was going to hunt up some
roots and things we're running low on."
"Taking Catherine with
"We'll see, I will let you know,
those two days were good to you" Fayde just smiled.
Jun 18 08 3:29 PM
Cort wandered toward the
cooking fires to ask John for a traveling pack, while they were talking maxi and Arthur appeared, and then Snug joined in.
After a few minutes maxi, Arthur and John agreed to go with Cort, as John was not letting his pregnant wife 'wander about the jungle pulling up
roots'. Snug frowned but gave maxi a detailed list of what she was looking for.
They walked, talked and found
along the way the things they were looking for. Cort was standing next to a small waterfall, "Is this the Valdin
plant of our tribal lore?" he asked maxi, she looked closely "No, I don't think so, from what I studied you need more water and yet it's
still a pretty rare flower." Both of them turned around when they heard a splash, "Arthur?"
He was grinning while John
was cursing as he stood covered in yuck, "he tried to reach over and slipped and fell in."
"Go ahead laugh it up
cousin - see if I cook any more of those bizarre makings you call Welsh delicacies."
Arthur sobered offered his
cousin a hand up then sniffed, "Oh - might want to find some clean water." John frowned then saw maxi and
Cort's expressions and frowned, "fine let's go!" After walking upwind from his tribe mates they found
a pond big enough for John to wash off whatever was clinging to him. Cort and Arthur were speaking and maxi was
walking next to John, when she started feeling… hot, tingling, wanton, she looked at John then moved toward her beloved.
The feelings ebbed a bit but she leaned against Arthur who without thinking gathered in his wife. She started
to run her hand over his back and when her hand slid further south Arthur jumped and grinned at Cort's questioning look while he glared at maxi looking at
him like lunch to a starving man. "maxi?"
She shook her head and
sniffed her husband, then put up her hand and wandered back to John who had taken in the scene and wondered what was happening between the couple. She sniffed toward John and smiled broadly, that hot, tingling sensation was back with force.
She moved back to Arthur and smiled, "its John - I can't tell what or why but we need to get home"
Cort overheard and quietly
asked, "maxi is there anything I can do?"
She giggled and shook her
head, "I just need Arthur" then she eyeballed him in a manner that made Arthur both excited and very nervous.
When the couple arrived at the village maxi tossed her sack at John and grabbed an unsure Arthur toward their home.
Cort and John looked at each other and shrugged, "what did she eat?"
"I don't know but
I'll make sure we have some handy" smiled John.
Snug arrived and accepted the
sack from John, he held on then paused, "did you do something today?"
Snug frowned "what does
that mean? I'm cooking twins! If that is all I did today that should be
enough! But no, I did laundry and tended to our children and-"
"No darling, like Deka
things today, maxi looked at Arthur like you look at my cakes."
"Did she eat some root
"Not that we know of -
but if she did we want some" grinned John.
Catherine walked up and
greeted her husband, and before she could speak she looked at him, and then stepped closer to John. She inhaled deeply
and smiled sexily - "very nice" she all but purred then turned to her husband - "I ah-I came by to---"she sniffed at John again then smiled
hungrily, "I need to see you" she grabbed Cort and led him home. John looked at his wife, "you don't
She sniffed at him and shook
her head, "you smell like you - a little less smoky because you haven't been cooking much today but just the man I love."
"You didn't react
like they did."
"Is that what maxi
They turned when they heard
shouts from the tree house, John just lifted a brow. "What did YOU eat?" Snug asked.
John just shrugged and
greeted his children coming home from lessons; Nodin toddled up and accepted his father's big hug then shook his head, "stink"
Alish got close then frowned
and started to cry, she ran to her mother "What's wrong sweetheart?"
"Daddy! Smells funny!! Icky"
John was now sniffing his own
arm and could smell nothing but him. "Daddy will clean up after dinner Ok?"
Alish nodded but stayed with
her mother. As the women of the tribe wandered by and all through dinner John endured the looks and sniffs from his
female tribe mates. The men weren't' as pleased until those looks were focused on them, and by early evening
few couples were out and about and most noises heard were that of shared ecstasy. John looked at his wife, "are
you sure this isn't you?"
"I haven't been to
the Temple today John, I swear. What did you rub on you?"
"I didn't rub--- I
fell into a pond of green gunk maxi said I stank, so I washed up with fresh water and a soap root."
Snug smiled, "You fell
into a pond, green, then mixed with soap root." She walked away came back a few minutes later with a book in her
hand, she was laughing, she tried to hold it in then she giggled more. Holding her belly she tried desperately to sober
her expression, "ah"
"Well you fell into a
pond full of rabbitoh algae when dried and mixed with soap root has a very powerful - ah aphrodisiac quality."
"the more you try to
scrub it off the strong it becomes, you're going to have to live with this for a couple of days - or so - until I can brew up some teddy root soap for you
and it has to harden." Snug bit her lip "If I were you sweetheart I'd start collecting favors from your
male cousins - to say-walk close to their beloved."
"Oh for the love
of! It's soap! Alish won't come near me!" john stormed off and tried in vain to scrub away the scent he couldn't smell. When he
came out of the pond he ran into Fayde, Jack and the girls. The reaction was almost instant with Fayde and slower with
the girls, he just headed them home to spend time with Alish and Nodin. Snug smiled and held her husband close,
"Two days my love, then
I will do something - we can enjoy. Go I'll play with the girls."
Breakfast was an interesting
affair, the men were tired, but happy the women, grinned at John accepted all the quips and questions about what his wife had done. But by the morning of the third day only husband's fetched the meal and they grumbled at the cook to 'quick spiking the
punch' and to tell the wife to lay off the candles. Jack lingered enjoying his coffee,
"I fell into rabbitoh
algae, and it interacted with the soap root I tried to clean it off with. Snug said her soap should be ready tonight, I
won't send wives into fits of needs just by cooking their dinner."
god" Jack put his head down and laughed, "I'm so tired I can't stand myself and I was seriously
considering taking you into the jungle and tying you into a tree."
If it makes you feel any
better - it hasn't worked on my wife.
"Seriously, everyone BUT
me has enjoyed my little accident."
"How does Snug feel
"She got mad last night
and after I wash up with this root of hers, she's got a little holiday planned for us."
Sure enough on the morning of
day four, John had breakfast ready but he was nowhere to be found, his children were enjoying time with friends and his wife - was true to her word… and the
whole tribe heard it.

Aug 25 08 2:23 PM
Russ and Sid returned to the village from meeting Charlie and the Angel II.
He was full of stories and happiness as he was now a permanent part of Toni's life. Oh she still ran the
most successful business in town, but they had their own "love nest" all to themselves.
The men said little on the ride home as it was always slower with supplies, letters and the like from families
that lived outside the jungle. When they arrived in the village, everyone met them and all supplies were stored, passed
to the right hands and packages and letters were delivered to those who couldn't meet the men home.
Snug tucked her children into bed for a nap and crawled into her own bed to relax and read the letter from her
mother. She knew she and Mary would exchange information at dinner as a letter had arrived for Mary as well, Snug
looked at the handwriting always so strong and sure, her mother's penmanship was truly lovely. Signing she debated
between a quick nap and reading the letter, but curiosity got the better of her and she opened the letter. Snug was
surprised to see only one page but figured mum had dashed off a quick note between globe trotting flights or ports of call.
My dearest daughter
I hope thIs letter fiNds you well. We are off again aboard a
smaller ship than usual and I find when the seas get to tossing us about iT makes for dining a less than happy expeRience.
Louis has been a most graciOUs host But alas, so many demands upon his time I find myself with little to
do some nights. We are supposed to be headed back toward your cLosest port of call and I hopE to post another letter
with the charming man who flies about for your mail. PleaSe write to him, as he as promisEd to hold aNd forwarD any
letters from you wHEn I can contact him by teLegraPh.
Kiss those darling grandchildren for me and don't have any more until my return.
With much love,
Snug frowned at the letter and read it again, she noted the odd capital letters her mum had
written. She sat up and went to her desk, read the letter and again and paused at the odd letters, she wrote them out
and absently shifted in her seat. Snug sighed and wrote out the letters then sat back as she was suddenly not feeling
very well. The twins were taking their toll on their mum today and she wasn't happy. Snug rose when she heard one of the children moving in the other room, she started to rise but felt a sudden pinch in her side,
she didn't dare move, but stayed hovering just above her chair, fighting pain and fear.
"Alish! Baby go run and get Daddy, tell him Mommy needs him right away!"
Alish hesitated noting her mother's face but moved quickly when her mother snapped, "NOW!"
Snug tried in vain to make her way back toward the bed, and thankfully her husband arrived in time to help to
the bed and another sharp pain in her side. She fought more panic and pain and asked for Fayde. As John was running out and Alish and Nodin were on the bed each holding their mother's hands, Mary entered the room holding
"A pain" Snug puffed and fought for a smile to calm her children, "Nodin, Alish go outside and
wait for Auntie Fayde, you can have a cookie and some juice when Daddy gets back."
"Mommy?" asked Nodin worried.
"Mommy's fine, the babies need a rest - like you just had Ok?"
"OK" quietly the children made their way out of the room and Mary rushed to Snug's side as
another pain hit her, "early labor?"
"This doesn't feel like labor and it's got me worried. You got a letter?"
"Did you figure the code?"
"Code? - the letters in the middle."
"Yes! Is she in trouble? - what does your letter say?"
"The letters are listed on the slip of paper I didn't have time to tinker with them. Oh…."
Just then Fayde and John rushed into the room, Mary backed away snatching the letter and the other sheet of
paper and stepping outside. She sat with the children and assured them that Mommy was find that Aunt Fayde was making
sure. When Russ arrived he sat down with his wife and asked "what's
"Snug is having some pains, but her mother is in trouble. She
sent us a coded message."
"What does it say?"
Mary looked at the letters Snug had noted, and then read the letter.
She saw the code immediately, "In Trouble, Send Help. Mind says, in Bedlum 2 weeks."
"For two weeks or in two weeks?" asked Russ already wondering what mess he was going to have to pull
his pseudo mother-in-law out of…
Mary hesitated then re-read her letter and Snug's, "In two weeks, and based upon the letter's
date, that will be in two day's time."
The pair looked up as John came out of the hut frowning he paused when his two children came running toward
him. "Mommy is going to be fine, she needs to rest a bit Aunt Fayde is checking her over to be sure. Did you guys have some juice?"
"An cookie!" smiled Nodin "Mary -said!"
John just smiled and hugged his children close, then Alish put her tiny hands on his face,
"Mommy's new babies?""
"They are fine too, go finish your juice and maybe we'll go spend the afternoon at the
Mary rose and unconsciously cupped her own developing belly, "John?"
"Fayde was a bit worried" he whispered watching his two eldest, "it wasn't labor it was too
sharp she's poking around and Snug is between curses and tears. They both kicked me out."
Mary hesitated until Russ spoke up, "has she read her letter from her mother yet?"
"I don't know, she went in with the kids to rest, she had it with her - bad news?"
Russ stepped in and told John what Mary had told him, he swore quietly paced away then back, "I'll
have to go to Maximus."
"I can" Mary spoke, we worked out this code in London it was a way to get friends and family news
without the entire bloody world, which no one could trust getting the same news. That is why I noticed it so
quickly. I won't tell her if you think it will upset her."
"Fayde will calm her down and depending upon what's going on I'll give her an edited
Mary hesitated but it was Russ who snorted, "that will work - there is hardly a soul in this village that
than keep a secret. Russ and John worked out a plan, and then Russ and Mary went to see Maximus they were met with
East, "I'm Chief this month - what's up? You two are already married."
Quickly Mary explained the issue, showed East the code and explained that she wanted to travel to the town to
get Mary. Russ and East frowned and spoke, "You are not traveling!"
"Russ I have to go! Mary is in trouble and it will cause less
fuss if I'm there to fetch her. Having a young buck arrive to 'save' her will cause a stir. And if that man is with her and he's the cause you will certainly make him wonder what the devil you're doing
here. He knows of me, and my role. I'm not sure how much he knows about why
or how we came to be here in the jungle. Russ paced back and forth, East watched remembering too sharply his own tug
of war with wife and family, then he paused and smiled. "WE will go - I have just the place where I can stay and
NO one will guess we are together."
Next morning Snug sat up in bed, the children were in the room with her and Mary was talking softly so she
didn't worry the children. "So Russ is coming along, he says he has a place to stay - I don't know why he
just can't stay in another inn or something. Maximus is debating whether or not to come along as an insurance
policy. We leave shortly; I'll get your mum home and safe."
Snug nodded and cursed her inability to go and tend to her mother, "Go to altar and get a candle of your
family color, and we'll quickly do a little bit so you'll be safe and that babe tended."
"Now please this is the only thing I can do right now." Mary
saw the determination in Snug's gaze and felt it in her grip, she rose pulled out the slim taper and gave it to Snug.
Alish seeing the candle scrambled up next to her mother and laid her head on her bump. Without thought Snug
touched her daughter's head and calmed, she lit the candle without a match and took Mary's hand and placed their joined hands over Mary's
bump. She spoke quietly, "Mother watch over this mother and babe as they traverse across the miles. Keep them strong, mind, body, spirit, and may they have the wisdom to see beyond false promises and shallow
pools." Mary's eyes remained open the entire time but she felt the small ripples within her and the utter calm
that Snug gave her. When Snug broke the connection and extinguished the flame she looked at Mary, "I have an open
link as it were to you and the babe. Think of me, say my name, I will hear you.
Good or bad news you can tell me, I won't look unless I hear from you. Oh and The Mother will tend to you and the
babe, as you travel the jungle you will be helped, treasured, once in the town - it is less so. Please be careful, and
"I will" smiled Mary, "and thank you for the blessing and the -"Nodin starting crying and
John was right there and scooped up his son, "Russ is ready-- did a rite?"
Snug smiled and held the sleeping Alish next to her belly; Mary shook her head and walked out. Nodin quieted down and John sat down gently next to his wife and sleeping daughter.
"Why didn't you send him out"?
"Didn't have time, I knew she was leaving quickly - and I forget." She kissed her son's tear stained face, "My warrior - mummy carried you."
John smiled and rose with his son still hanging on to him. "Rest with her"
Snug smiled and tapped her lips, "pay up."
John leaned over and kissed his wife just as Fayde walked in, "Didn't I discourage this
John rose and turned toward Fayde, "kissing is permitted and the men are leaving, right buddy?"
"Da!" Nodin pouted, "Cakes?"
John just laughed, "Some warrior you will be with a belly like Grandpap Jeffery."
Fayde sat next to Alish and watched her face, "She's out."
"Give her five minutes she'll be up and running again. Talk
"Any pain today?"
Snug hesitated, "a bit, slept off and on John was out like a light except when I rolled over, he was up
like a shot." She smiled, "moving around was a bit painful."
Fayde frowned and tenderly mapped her friend's belly at certain spots she'd pause move around; she
listened and tenderly tended to her patient. "I'm going to keep you in bed for another couple of
days. Best case its twins and you're overdoing - per usual. Worst case
you're placenta is pulling away from your uterus while means you'll have twins too early to survive." Snug
bit her lip "I waited, I listened to you - and when are you going to tell me about your meeting The Mother?"
Aug 25 08 2:24 PM
Fayde sat back and accepted the tea John brought in, Alish continued to sleep on so the adults left her to
be. "I didn't - really - I mean she said-"
Snug just sipped and raised an eyebrow when her friend hesitated.
"What did she say to you?"
"That my girls bring me untold joy and pride."
"There's a news flash." Snug laughed then gingerly touched her sore tummy. She waved Fayde off and leaned back, "what else?"
"Nothing - you need to rest."
"I'm not sleepy my brain has counted and recounted the ceiling and the number of threads in this
blanket - talk to me before I go mad!"
Fayde recounted her 'conversation' and Snug was stumped, "I've felt nothing, other than my
own overworking body. Have you had any more - contact?"
"No, and frankly that was enough." They spoke of daily life,
Fayde smirked when Snug asked if she had seen Jeffery's family tree project. The tender smile paused Snug,
"He had Giggles paint my girls as Jack's"
Snug fought tears and smiled, "they are"
"Yeah but not everyone would be so generous."
Mary looked about the bustling town and worried, "We'll never find her!"
"Relax we're here to shop remember?"
"How did you get drafted into this kettle of fish?"
"Kettle of fish?" viz shook her head, "I told Maximus
that you needed a hand, and you were right Russ and you would be noticed, two women not so much."
"And while we're on the subject exactly what are you wearing?"
viz frowned at the dress and continued to make her way toward their lodge, "it covers my warrior
markings, and Velvet said it was pretty shapeless. Let's get settled."
Sid smiled at the display in front of him, "And we're going to what?"
Russ smiled and randomly picked one girl and stood, paid his fee and spoke, "So we have folks who say we
were here. It's cover."
Sid just shrugged picked a red head and lead her upstairs, "I don't see why we couldn't stay near
the gi-ah - you know."
Russ allowed the girl to tend to him, bath, massage, meal; he said he was tired so she left for a couple of
hours. When Russ found Sid he was wet and happy - "does viz know?"
"What? Mr. A has been a good boy - mostly."
"I don't want to know - here's the plan, drug her make sure the room looks like we had a real
good time and meet me by the back door at midnight."
Sid just rolled his eyes and wondered if viz would really know if he did something he wasn't supposed
to. Looking toward the city he figured he probably would so he willed his body to sleep.
Aug 25 08 2:34 PM
Mary looked at the small purchases she had made, she and viz had walked all over the town, wandered close to
the docks and made notes of the ships, and their flags. Mary also knew that viz had managed to check several guest
books to see if Emily or her 'friend' had rented a room. Now they were back in their rooms and waiting…
"Sid" grunted viz as he tossed her against the wall and plastered his body next to hers, "you
have no idea-" and proceeded to kiss her hotly and peel away the layers between them, before viz could gather breath again Sid was inside her, panting her
name, his hands so busy she clung and kept kissing him so the sounds of their passions didn't spill into the adjoining room.
"How are you?" Russ held his wife tenderly as she clung to
"I'm a bit worried, we did as we planned but so far we've seen nothing. Poor Emily - and - I miss you already." Russ smiled, tenderly mapped the features of
his wife's face, her new curves and her tummy, "we have a few minutes."
