Right from the get-go, our bodies connected in a tender, sensuous, yet sexy way I had never experienced before. This man was not only charming and tactile, but also witty and gentle. How could a woman resist? How could I stop the mating game once these hormones had kicked in?
Exhausted, but sated, I lay on the bed when Alec returned from the bathroom with a big wet, hot towel with which he covered me. What a beautiful sensation to be pampered like this! I stretched like a contented cat and purred with pleasure. I said, “Wow, that’s nice!”
“An old Chinese custom.”
He had been living in Hong Kong for the past 22 years, working in the hotel industry until his marriage to a Chinese lady had broken up. They’d had a daughter now twenty, Jasmine, who had come back to the UK with him when he returned home after his divorce; she was in law school. There were three other significant relationships he wanted me to know about, but none had lasted longer than a year or two.
“So what are your downsides? If any,” I said, “You are so attentive and gentle.”
“And romantic as you may have noticed. There are no dark secrets in my past. I am a one-woman guy and I’m looking for one more woman – for the last time!” My heart started beating even faster.
