Name of the Author: Peter John
Robert Jones suddenly reappeared into her life. This was her second chance. He was the one that had got away and he made her feel like a giddy teenager again. Something about him stirred her up inside. A lot had changed in the 45 years they had been apart but at least one thing had stayed the same; he still knew how to press all her buttons. This was the night Victoria Noakes would truly live up to her reputation. The harlot in surgical stockings has a hot date.
For such a short story to give me stitches on my side, it is worth the read. Hilarious. The author uses words, not scenes, to make you laugh. Can't help but quote a line.( Pardon me Peter John) but I've been quoting these lines to all friends and of course giving you the credit)
'She padded foundation powder onto her cheeks and carefully applied a thick coat of glossy red lipstick before finally inserting her dentures."
Dentures? I had to read the line twice before the humor in it really hit me. Such an unromantic object but used so aptly.
This love story is of Victoria and Bob, a rekindled affair after 45 years of a chance meeting. The love, the fears and the desires in an old couple is beautifully depicted.
But be warned that it contains some explicit words, but all told in a very humorous way.
