She said:
Thanks for agreeing to this… and please, make yourself comfortable. I’ve got grapefruit juice or honeybush tea if you fancy?

Wait, how did you know? he asked, completely baffled.

That’s my little secret, but let me just say – I always study my subject, speaking of which, I’ve got some sativa if you care to share with me. I like to steady my hand before getting started.

OK, sure! he replied.

Great, we can listen to some Selah Sue so long, she suggested.

You’ve definitely done your research.

That’s true. I do know much about you, she said, with a full-blown smile.

Well, you’ll know even more soon enough, seeing as you’re about to paint me nude.

    Sir Hauge, I’m not letting you off easy, been checking A Fictional Place for a while, I’m thirsting for stories now. Whatever adventures you’ve been on need not derail you, and don’t even think of blaming Lady Hauge 🙂

    ha ha thank you very much Millie, is that what this is? I just call it ‘stuff’, and that is when I’m not calling it ‘junk’ 🙂

    From honeybush tea to ecstasy in such a straight line, with so many wonderful curves. Great story!

    Great writing Heath, as you quickly moved us from mystery to reveal leading the reader, but playing with the scene. Really enjoyed this read.

    ah, yes. sadly, no adventures to report here. though i have tossed out a couple or so throw aways on my other site with perhaps another one there again soon. i appreciate your concern but i haven’t been motivated for some reason. just a malaise i suppose. thanks, my friend.

    Sativa is just one of many strains my friend 🙂


  19. Very entertaining my friend! Just wondering how long it will take to finish the painting! A favor if you please; I am considering publishing a book, and would be honored if you would make some suggestions on what I should include! Good luck with the nude! Allow the artist to paint![on the canvas] 😉
