The Great Pitstop Pandemonium - ConclusionDaphne’s head was spinning. She had suggested drawing them out into the open, but she had not figured on the idea that he would drug and take them... take them...
She wasn’t exactly sure where she was, only that she could feel a cool breeze on her face, and her head was spinning - no, wait a minute, it wasn’t her head was spinning, it felt as if she was immobile and spinning at the same time...
She opened her eyes, to see the sky spinning slowly in front of her. She tried to move he r hands to stop it, but as she glanced to her side she could see she was secured with heavy leather straps to a white wooden board, and it was this that seemed to be moving. As the platform slowly turned, she looked to one side, and a short distance away she could see Velma, strapped to a similar board with a thick leather pad covering her mouth.
“Which would explain the taste of rubber in my own,” Daphne thought to herself as she tried moving her own li
Hospital TraumaAs Coleen Wicks walked into the clinic on that summer's day, she had no idea she was destined to play an important part in a story that would never ever be fully told. But then, that's always the lot of the background player - the role they play is never really understood, never really appreciated. The plain truth is, as I saw her come into the reception area and walk towards the changing rooms, it was her height and build that told me she was perfect for my need.Hospital Trauma3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I put down the way out of date magazine back on the seat and followed her, making sure I wasn't seen as she walked through a plain white door. I had identified it at previous visits as the Nurse's changing room - the perfect place to make my preparations for that day.
I looked from side to side and slipped in, making sure I did not make a sound. There was Coleen, standing in front of her locker, hanging her red leather jacket up inside as she took out a starched white nurses' dress
The Birthday and the Party - part 1When Regina opened her eyes, she knew something was different. She just could not put her finger on what. The alarm had gone off as usual, playing the soft rock she liked to listen to. She could hear voices downstairs, which would indicate either Mark or Kristen were up. So far, so good.The Birthday and the Party - part 12 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
So what was it? They had gone out for a meal, last night, as they had planned. She had worn her new Dior trouser suit, Kristen a brown jumper, leather skirt and high heels, and Mark had even agreed to wear a tie. That had gone well.
They had come home, had a hot drink, and then they went to bed. All perfectly normal - and yet something was not quite right. She tried to bring her hand down to scratch her nose- and then she realised what was not quite right.
She could not move her hand. Looking up, she saw it was tied to the headboard with a long red silk scarf. A look to the other side confirmed both arms were in the same predicament. “Right,” she said to herself, “I’m tied up
Mark's soulmate - part 2I sat looking at her for a moment, trying desperately to stop my heart busting out from my chest, and then said in a very hoarse voice “Perhaps we can take this a step at a time first.” Picking up another long silk scarf, this one blue, I said “Put your ankles together for me.”Mark's soulmate - part 22 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Samantha smiled and lifted her legs up, putting her feet on my lap as she shuffled round and relaxed. I wrapped the scarf round her ankles, binding them firmly together as I said “Let’s see how you feel with both your wrist and ankles tied before I do anything else. If you like it, I can carry on - if not, then we can stop there and then.”
“How did it feel when it happened to you the first time,” she said as she wriggled her hose covered toes at me. I hoped to God she did not notice the way that affected me, before saying “Scary as hell - it was an armed man who did it to me and Kristen. In fact, it was that which made me l
The Birthday and the Party - part 6“Now then my fair slave,” I said as I looked at Sam, “how am I going to make sure you cannot escape from my clutches?”The Birthday and the Party - part 62 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Sam looked at me, then bowed her head and held her hands out, saying “I place myself in your hands, O fair and just master.”
“Good,” I said as I picked up some more rope, “because I have plans for you.”
“May I make one request first?”
“OF course, my slave.”
“Take off the poncho and hat.”
I threw them to one side and started to bind Sam’s wrists together, the only other sound the squeak of leather and rope, but I wasn’t paying any attention to my sister or Sam’s mother – I was focusing my attention fully on the woman of my dreams, as I passed the rope between her wrists, and started to kiss her as I held her in my arms.
Our lips were locked for what seemed to be an eternity, as we just enjoyed being so close to each other, her hands resting against my
The Birthday and the Party - part 4The event was taking place at the local Community College, and as we got closer it was obvious a lot of people from the town had come – and a lot of the fellow students of Sam and me. I stepped out, leading Sam by her leash as we walked into the main entrance, and straight into a group of my friends.The Birthday and the Party - part 42 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“Wow,” own of the jocks said, “Where in Mexico did you manage to catch that beauty, stranger?”
“Somewhere you will never go,” I grumbled as I led Sam into the large hall, where other people in bright costumes were standing around and talking. She held her hands out for me, and smiled as I removed the cuffs and the leash from her collar.
“See you later,” she said as she gave me a kiss, and went to join some of her friends, while I walked over and joined some of mine.
We stood around, talking about some of the girls and telling jokes, before I heard the DJ saying “Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to our Halloween Hop – so let
The Birthday and The Party - part 2We locked lips for a few minutes, before I smoothed several strips of tape over Sam’s lips and led her up to my bedroom. I set her down on the bed, and said “We have a little quality time, who don’t we cuddle a little.”The Birthday and The Party - part 22 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Sam nodded at that as I taped her ankles, then her legs below the knees, before helping her to lie on her side. Lying down behind her, I started to put my arm around her, my fingers stroking over her chest as my lips touched the back of her neck.
I heard her muffled moan as she pressed back against me, allowing me to kiss the side of rhea neck as she mewled in appreciation. I knew we only had a little while, but I wanted to enjoy it, as I whispered false menaces into her ear and she giggled with you.
“I’m back,” Kristen said as she came in, and looked in on Mum. She was lying on the couch, contentedly watching her DVD as I came down the stairs.
“So,” Kristen said as she looked at me, “Yo

“Yup – a couple of country hicks going to see the sights of tinsel town,” I said as I put the envelope down, and then took her in my arms. “Congratulations,” I said as I kissed her, smiling as she put her arms around me.
“Same to you,” she said quietly as she looked at me, before Linda came in and said “Come on you two – plenty of time for that later, right now there’s a bottle champagne in the fridge.”
“What the... Did you think we were going to win?”
“I thought you were in with a damned good chance,” Jennifer said as she came in with Mum and Kristen, “but it’s there for your mother, actually.” I smiled at my own stupidity, and then followed them into the living room with Sam, as Jennifer went to a cupboard and took out some champagne

Eleanor blushed at the compliment from Harriet, as she looked at herself in the mirror of her bedroom. The two girls had been invited to a party at a club Eleanor’s father was a member of, and the theme, naturally enough for the time of year, was horror.
“Yeah,” Eleanor said as she looked over at the redhead, “but it’s not exactly me, is it?” She was wearing white nurse’s uniform, the top buttons undone and a thick blue canvas belt around her waist, but there was a stain at the front to represent blood. She had used tomato juice - and the uniform was an old one of her mother’s. Her long brunette hair was pulled back in a ponytail, and she had sued a combination of flour and soot from an old coal fire to make herself look more ghoulish. The outfit was completed by a pair of black fishnet tights and a pair of Edwa
The Birthday and the Party - part 9No, I’m not going to tell you what happened next – not here anyway. Let’s just say Sam completely surprised me, and when she was done, we cuddled and kissed for quite some time afterwards.The Birthday and the Party - part 92 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
What I will say is this – at about ten in the morning, Linda finally came in, untied Sam, and left me to her tender mercies for a little while longer. It was eleven by the time the two of us finally appeared downstairs, having showered, and in my case put on a spare pair of jeans and a t-shirt that I had left there previously as well as some clean boxers and socks.
Sam has put on a pair of denim shorts over a pair of black sheer hose, and an open necked blue polo shirt. A pair of black ballet slippers kept her feet clean on the floor as we walked into the kitchen – to find nobody there.
There was a note, however, that said “Gone shopping – we’ll get some lunch out, and then come back to get Mark. Regina.”
“What do you
The Birthday and the Party - part 3It took me a good ninety minutes to get in and out of town, especially as I had to get a cab home with the three clothes bags, but as I came back in I could hear Mum and Kristen squirming round on the floor and talking to each other. I looked in the doorway, and said “Everything all right?”The Birthday and the Party - part 32 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“Hysssvrytfngslvly,” Mum said, but I could see the hem of her skirt had ridden up, while Kristen was shaking her head as she looked on.
“Well, you hold that thought, and I’ll get some snacks together – right after I put these upstairs.” I held up the clothes bags and then left them to struggle some more, while I deposited the bags in the rooms and then sorted out some dips, strips of vegetables and drinks.
Only then did I go through and untie them, allowing Mum to runt to the bathroom while Kristen finally had a chance to take her boots off. “I need a long shower and a night out of boots,” she said with a sigh.
Mark's soulmate - part 4I was beginning to wonder if my day had been cursed or blessed as I looked at her. She was wearing a black leather jacket over a white blouse and light tan pants, and I could see the toes of her black fabric boots peeking out from under the hems of the legs.Mark's soulmate - part 42 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She was still staring at us as we heard footsteps on the stairs, and I saw Kristen appear behind Mum. “Ah,” she said as she looked at us, “Mum, why don't you go into the kitchen, and put the coffee on, and they can join you there in a few minutes.” She looked at me and smiled as she took Mum away, then came in and started to untie us.
“I’m so sorry,” she said as she removed the ropes from around our waists and legs, then peeled the tape away from our mouths. “I had no idea she was going to come back so early. I guess that’s another introduction you’re going to have to do.”
“Don’t tell me,” Samantha said as she looked at

“Thank you, Charlotte, I think that will take care of things for the moment - I’ll bid you a good day.”
Charlotte Danson smiled at her lawyer as he put on his coat and collected his briefcase. The twenty two year old was wearing a Springsteen concert t-shirt, with the cover of Born in the USA on the front, grey leggings with baggy white socks pulled over the bottom, and a pair of slippers on her feet. Her long dark hair fell over her shoulders, while her blue eyes sparkled almost as much as her smile.
“I’ll be in touch,” Mr Peabody said as he walked with her to the front door of the flat, doffing his hat before he left. As she closed the door, Charlotte stood with her back to it and sighed - it had been one hell of a morning, running from pillar to post, but finally she was in a posit

“Oh they’ll be here soon enough – once I call them and tell them I have the notorious Family Robbers in custody. Right now, you can kneel down, hands on your head, while I make sure you can’t cause me any more trouble.”
“All right – but you’ll never get away with this,” Sam said as she knelt down, watching me while I selected a length of rope, knelt behind her and moved her arms so that her wrists were crossed behind her back.
I could see Linda and Jennifer laughing under their tape gags as they watched me bind Sam’s wrists tightly together, and then to her back. “Hey – no peeking,” I said as I picked up the roll of plaster, walked over and pressed a strip over the eyes of each of them, befo

It had awakened something in me, however, and whatever it was the girls in the class had noticed - one in particular. I had known Samantha since kindergarten, when she had work frilly skirts and she had her brown hair in pigtails. Now, however she looked completely different. She wore her brown hair long, framing her round face and falling over her shoulders, and liked to wear either short skirts or tight pants. She almost always wore those with high heels, even though she was the same height as me without them - I guess she felt they meant she was noticed.
I wasn’t really looking for a girlfriend, if truth be told, but as always seems to be the way you find something just at that point. It

The day had started just like any other at Burnfield College - the students walking in, chatting to each other and looking forward to their classes. For Veronica Berry, the first class of the day was Drama - a subject she tried her best at, but even she had to admit she was better at the technical and writing side then the acting.
That was the forte of her two best friends - Betty Drake and Ethel Corman. They had been friends for years,

“I wasn’t expecting to be back earlier either,” she said as she looked at me, “but Dee came down with the flu this morning, and the others called off our afternoon out, so I came home, to find your friend here lying on the couch. Will you introduce us?”
I swallowed hard again and said “Samantha, this is my sister Kristen. Kristen, this is Samantha.”
“Pleasure to meet you Samantha - I see Mark has been showing you some of his tricks.” Samantha grew redder in the cheeks as she looked at Kristen, nodding slowly as she looked next at me.

As he pulled into the yard at the back of the university building, Jack looked round before climbing out of the driver’s seat and walking round to the side door. As he opened it, Katie and Alex looked round, their heads now covered in brown burlap bags.
“You going to be able to keep an eye on them,” he said to Dave, who was sitting with his arms on his knees watching the two girls wriggle round.
“Yeah, I’ll be fine,” he said with a big smile, “you go and get the Charlotte chick, and we’ll be on our way tout suite.” Jack smiled a she picked up a toolbox and closed the van door, walking towards a rear entrance to the building.

The men started clapping and cheering as the dark haired beauty came out on the dance floor, smiling as she started dancing to the music of Marmalade. The Go Go A Go Go may not have been the most originally name bar in the town, but it was one of the best known and most appreciated, especially by those of a certain age.
The club itself was jointly owned by Maria and her sister Beth – Maria worked front of shop, running the bar and keeping the customers happy, while Beth ran back of house and booked the dancers. Dusty was one of the most popular, as she danced on the stage, the metallic sheen of her pop art dress gleaming under the Krieg lights.
Her dark hair was arranged in a high beehive, held in place by an army of Kirby grips and a mass of Silvikrin hairspray. Her sleeveless dress had black borders separating the solid blocks of white, blue, red and gold, while her legs were

“Do you know,” Kristen said as she looked at me, “I don’t think I’ve seen Mark looking so smart - or so nervous - for a long time.” I looked at her and nodded as I stood up and paced the floor, the legs of my khaki pants swinging as I did so.
“Relax,” Kristen said as she flipped through a magazine, “you’re not going to get into any trouble.” She was still wearing the fawn coloured jumper and knee length suede skirt of the same colour she had worn to church, while I could hear Mum pottering around in the kitchen. She had on a cream coloured sundress with a floral print, a wide white leather belt and three inch white heels.
Suddenly, I almost jumped out of my skin when the doorbell rang. “I’ll get it,” Kristen said as

There was a cool breeze blowing as Heidi, Jannifer and Cindy made their way back to Heidi’s house after school. They had left Natalie and Alice at the gymnasium, wishing them luck in the competition that afternoon, and then gone to the mall for a short while before heading back - the plan was to meet up with the other two later that evening.
Heidi was wearing a blue and white striped top, black jeans and a pair of black flat shoes, while Cindy had on a white round necked sweatshirt under a knee length pale blue pinafore dress. Her knee length white socks were visible between the hem of her dress and the top of her black felt boots.
As for Jannifer, she was wearing a red top with sleeves that came down to her elbows, and a hood that lay down her back, a short black skirt, black tights and maroon coloured flat shoes. All three were carrying their books as they talked and walked along.

As I watched her twisting round with Kristen and Mum, I could feel the familiar feeling between my legs again, but this time it felt somehow - different. I wanted so much to walk over and touch her there, but I knew somehow it would be wrong to do so. For one thing, they were not blindfolded, and they would see me - Sam would see me. But for another thing, there was a voice in me saying “No - not unless she tells you somehow it’s all right.”

“Which flat is it?”
“Ground floor - I suggest we go round the back and park, and then come in from the rear entrance.”
The driver nodded as he set off again, turning down the service road as a tall, dark haired girl came out of the front of the building and walked down the street.
