Lana... and Maria

Young at Heart

Lana hasn’t changed at all since I initiated the affair. She is still the same woman I left: gentle, refined, sophisticated, charming, and beautiful. She has the vitality and physique of a woman half her age. (14+)

Our Secret Place

Our Secret Place

Dear Linda, I found your old diaries this morning. I sat on the rectory bench where we used to meet, the weak autumn sun in my face, turning the faded pages of a life filled with love and tears. Do you remember the tennis courts where we played when we were young? They’re overgrown now, covered in moss, dying leaves, curling crisps of bronze and gold. Their nets are torn to shreds, like my heart. I closed your book and thought of all the good times we had. I miss you. Daniel xx (14+)

Blue Infinity, Red Heart

‘You were staring at my freckles, weren’t you? Like other men do. Beautiful, aren’t they?’ Her freckles intoxicated, wearied, me. I rubbed my eyes, my bearded face. ‘Yes, but I…’ ‘In case you were wondering, they go on forever,’ she sighed wearily, ‘like me.’ I shook my head. Had a long day, dreamy, wanted my bed. ‘Sorry, what did you just say?’ ‘I go on forever,’ she said, with a hint of pride, ‘Would you like to live forever with me?’ (14+)
