When we had moved in to the new neighbourhood, one of the first to make us feel welcome were our neighbours, Jim and Suze.
Suze made me feel particularly welcome, and I noted that she took the unusual step of kissing me lightly on the cheek when we first met. I remember smelling her expensive scent and her just washed hair. She was a natural brunette, younger than me by a few years with wide brown eyes. During the formalities she looked me directly in the eyes, to the extent, I wondered if I had smudged my own makeup.
Over the next few weeks I never noticed anything particularly different with Suze. As I said she was younger than me and had no other family beside Jim. Jim seemed a very quiet person and Suze seemed to be the dominant partner.
Anyway, my husband is away (a lot) and with both my children away at college, I often find myself alone. Suze made it known that she would be happy to sleep over if I ever felt lonely or just wanted some company. She went on to say that Jim spent all his available hours at home either reading or on the internet.
My husband was due for an overniter away and I suggested to Suze she and Jim may want to come over for a drink. Suze got back to me, saying Jim would take a raincheck but she would be glad to come over.
Suze rang the doorbell at about 7PM and when I opened the door I blanched. Suze was dressed in a tight fitting black number and stilletos! I wondered for a second if she had thought I had meant a 'formal' dinner!
She noted my startled look and what happened next, just blew me away.
Suze stepped inside and kissed me, on the lips! I was dumbfounded and exhillarted all at once and just let the kiss linger. She pressed me against the wall and stared into my eyes.
My brain was abuzz! What was going on? What should I do?
