Chapter 1

Her name is Karen Watson a high level executive’s wife who is bored with the grinding charity events, dinner parties, and the list goes on.  

One afternoon while meeting with her girlfriends at the Capital Hill Country club she noticed a hot young man that kept checking her out. She has seen him around before and out on the golf course when she was waiting to Tee off and here at the bar. 

"My God Carol I think he's checking me out." Karen whispered to her best friend. 

"What?" Carol asked. 

"That cute guy that we see around the club, over there, look." Carol glanced over his way trying not to look obvious. 

"I think he is. Boy what would I give to get some of that?" Carol said smiling as she took a sip of her Chardonnay.

"Noooo, I wouldn't dare Carol. Besides I'm too old for him." 

"It doesn't look like it matters to him. Besides, what's wrong with a little extra sugar every now and then." Carol smiled looking at him again.

“Carol!” said Karen looking shocked and thankful for her honesty at the same time.

“Look, you’re good looking for a forty something. I won’t tell him if you don’t. You are as bored as I am with all of the dinner parties and crap we get dragged to week in and week out.  I mean really, when was the last time you let your hair down and had some fun? And I don’t mean last week in the Hamptons .  That was just another boring ‘look at me, look at me’ party.” Carol said signaling for another Chardonnay.

“Well I guess you’re right. But…”

“But nothin’, I won’t tell anybody.” Carol said holding her hand.

“What would I do without my best friend to talk to about this kind of stuff.”

“Well you want to know a little secret?” Carol said leaning close to Karen.

“What?” Karen asked with a puzzled look on her face

“Well, I’ve got me some ‘extra sugar on the side’.” Carol said grinning ear to ear relieved to finally let someone else know.  Karen was stunned.  She would have never guest Carol her best friend since she came to Capital Hill twelve years ago.

“Get out!  Are you kidding me?” Karen gasped.

“I kid you not, his name his Roger.”

“You don’t mean Roger the tennis instructor over at the Sugar Bay resort.”

“O’ yeah and mama like!” giggled Carol.

“Carol, now tell me you are joking”

“Remember last Wednesday afternoon when you called and you left me a voice mail?”


“Well, I was getting some sugar and I mean some good sugar.  He banged the hell out me.”


“What, you mean to tell me that you asked me to check and see if he was looking at you because you think he was being inappropriate?  I don’t think so.”


“Karen, look at me, go-for-it. Okay, go for it.  Stop looking in the window at the candy and go get some.”

Karen’s heart was pounding ninety to nothing.  She ordered another Martini and sipped it down in record time.

“Okay Carol, I’m gonna do it.  Shit he’s so hot lookin’.  I’m so thankful when I look at the tee sheet and see we get to follow him on the first tee box.”

“I’ve noticed the way you rush in to the club house and ask to see the tee sheet.  I knew something was up.” Said Carol smiling sipping her Chardonnay.

“Well I’ve never felt like this before much less thought about doin’ anything like this.  Hell, I’m married”.

“And what does that have to do with the price of the sugar?”

“O’ my God Carol he’s coming over here.  Shit, shit, shit.”

“Calm down. You’ll know what to say by time he gets here.  Besides I got your back.”

Chapter 2 “Hi, I’m Paul can I buy you a drink?”

Paul came over to them with his drink.  Karen is looking straight ahead terrified to look him in the eye.  

“Hello ladies.” He said greeting them sitting next to Karen.

“Well, hello.” Carol said nudging Karen.

“O’, hello.” Said Karen nervously taking another sip of her now third Martini.

“Well, I do believe I have seen you ladies on the tee box from time to time. Now, you” Paul said looking Karen dead in the eyes. “I remember that whole in one three weeks on the Par 3, hole number four right?” Karen couldn’t believe her ears. She didn’t think he gave her two looks much less remembering that hole one.

“Yes, hole number four, right.” Was all Karen could get out.  Carol sensing Karen’s wobbling knees stepped up to her rescue.

“Wasn’t that awesome, she’s just being modest about it.  She’s really a good golfer.  We have seen you around often, you live near by?”

“Nah, I come up to spend the summer with my parents. I’m a part time golf instructor.” Paul said still focusing on Karen. 

“Golf instructor?  Well Karen and I, wait I’m sorry, this is my friend Karen Watson and Carol Manchester.” Said Carol jumping at the opportunity to introduce Karen.

“Karen, it’s my pleasure. I’ve been watching you play.  You’ve got a good short game.  Your putting just needs a little tweaking but over all you got game.”

“Well, I’ve been practicing on the putting green at home.” Karen said feeling the affects of Martini’s kicking in.  She look at his strong muscular arms, jet black hair, blue eyes, golden California tanned skin and tried not to be too obvious glancing down at his crotch.

“How about another around on me ladies?” Paul asked hoping they hadn’t had too many cocktails already.

“Sure, let’s order up.  We just got started and don’t have any other plans for the rest of the day.” Said Carol before Karen could chicken out and bail.

“Well, I don’t know Carol, should we?” asked Karen giving her the score one for team look.

“Of course. Please Paul let us put it on our tab.  Hell, they don’t charge us for half the drinks we order anyway.” Said Carol waving over the bartender.

“Thank you ladies, I’ll have another Dewar’s on the rocks.  So Karen, about your putting, how about we pair up tomorrow for around of golf and I can help you get dialed in and cut at least three stokes off your game.” Asked Paul reaching for a napkin writing his cell phone number on it, then pushed it towards her hand. 

Karen eyes lit up. Here was her chance to spend at least four hours with a gorgeous man and not just any man, a young man. She became flushed with the idea of it.  She began to feel young and attractive.

“Well, um, tomorrow, well ah, Carol, do we have a tee time tomorrow?” Karen asked looking at Carol with a slight grin on her face.

“Don’t look at me, I’ve got tennis tomorrow.” Said Carol smiling and sipping her drink.

“Good then it’s a date, say around 9am?” Chimed in Paul. 

“Okay, 9 am tomorrow, golf, yes that works for me.” Said Karen looking at Paul then over at Carol.

“Excellent, then I’ll see you tomorrow. Here’s my cell number in case you can’t make it.  Thank you for the cocktail ladies, my treat next time.” Said Paul throwing back the last of his scotch then waving as he walked backwards a few steps then turn away.

“O’ my God Carol, he is so freakin’ hot and damn yummy.” Said Karen not believing she was going to play golf with him.

“O’ yeah, you’re going to have some real good fun with that.” Carol said watching him walk away. “And look at that ass. O’ my, you’re going to have a real good time with that candy bar.”


Chapter 3 ~ Our round of golf, O’ My…

Karen’s alarm clock went off as she turned over anticipating its musical alarm. This is it, her date with Paul, four hours at least with a dream boy toy.  She squirmed underneath the sheets fantasizing about what it would be like to have a young stud all over her.

“Honey, Karen? Are you awake?” asked Bill Karen’s husband sitting on the side of the bed sliding on his slippers.

“Yeah, I’m awake.” Said Karen trying not to look like a high school girl flustered with thoughts of her new friend.

“I’ll be in New York for meetings all day. Want to drive me to the airport or should I call the car service?”

“Carol and I have plans today.  You don’t mind taking the car service do you?  We’re meeting for breakfast at Shelly’s.”

“No problem. I’ll send them a text to pick me up in thirty minutes.  Don’t worry about fixing me breakfast, I’ll get something at the airport.”

“Okay honey.” Said Karen relieved that he didn’t insist she take him to the airport.

Bill got into his usual morning routine as Karen stood in her closet trying to figure out what to wear.  She picked up and put back several outfits.  She wanted something sexy, but not too obvious.

“Shit, I don’t know what to wear” she murmured to herself. She waited until she heard Bill get into the shower before she called Carol.

“Carol its Karen. Can you talk?”

“Yeah.  You are getting ready right? Don’t tell me you’re backing out!”

“Noooo, I’m not backing out. Hell, I can’t get Bill out of here fast enough and get to the golf course.  I’m calling because I don’t know what to wear?”

“That’s easy. Wear that pastel blue outfit you got last week when we were shopping.  You know the one with the double pleated skirt, blue and white top.”

“Oh, yeah, now where in the hell is it.  Shit Carol I’m so nervous.”

“Calm down. You’ll be fine once you get there. Trust me he will be there way before you waiting like a little boy to light his firecracker.”

“Carol you’re the best cheer leader.  I’ll call you later with details.”

“Okay. Don’t hold back and I want every juicy detail.  Talk to you later”.  Karen could her Bill heading for the closet.

“Here you go honey, wear this suit and this tie.  You’ll knock ‘em dead today.” She said trying to keep Bill on pace to get out the door on time.

“Thanks honey. You sure about this tie?”

“Yep. It’s my favorite.” She said pushing him out of the closet.  “I’ll go get coffee started and put in it a travel mug for ya.”

“Thanks babe.”

Karen quickly went downstairs and got the coffee started, got out his travel mug, briefcase and peaked out the window to see if the car service had arrived.  ‘Damn, hurry up’ she thought to herself looking at the clock on the microwave.  Bill came downstairs finish tying his tie.

“How do I look?”

“Perfect honey, the picture of success.”

“You were right about the tie. Is the car here yet?”  Karen looked out the window again.  She could see it coming up the driveway towards the front door.

“Yep, he’s pulling up now.”

“Okay, see you later tonight.  Don’t wait up. I probably won’t get in until around 11:30.”

“Okay honey bear.”  Karen said giving him a kiss.

“See you later babe, love you.”

“Love you too” she said standing in the doorway until she could no longer see the car.  ‘Shit, I’ve got to get ready’.  She ran up the stairs, turned on the shower and started putting up her hair when she heard her cell phone ringing.  ‘Damn it, now what bill?’ she thought turning on the phone and putting it up to her ear.

“Yes Bill did you forget something?” she said pulling off her night gown and feeling the water temperature.

“Hi Karen, its Paul.”  Karen was stunned but glad to hear Paul’s voice.

“Oh, hi Paul, are we still on?” she asked nervously.  She didn’t want to hear him cancel their date.  She leaned against the vanity to brace for his words of cancellation.

“Yes we’re still on.  I just got here a little early and Jeffery gave me your number.  I wanted to make sure you were coming.  I hope you are.  You are still coming aren’t you?”  Karen held back the phone and blew kisses at it then regained her composure. 

“Why yes.  I’m getting ready now. I shouldn’t be too much longer.  You know us girls take a little longer than you boys.”

“Great. I can’t wait to see you.  Take your time. See you soon.”

“Okay, see you soon.” 

Karen stepped into the shower and let out a big sigh.  She couldn’t believe she was going to go through with this.  ‘Maybe I’m making this out to be more than what it is, just a simple round of golf’ she thought to herself as she stood under the shower.  ‘But what if it’s not? What if he wants to take me back to his place afterwards?  What would I give to feel him all over me having his way?  It’s been so long.  Bill and I barely have sex any more.  I’m lucky if we have sex once every other month.’

Karen got dressed, checked out herself in the mirror, went downstairs, finished off her coffee and headed for the country club.  Her heart started pounding when she saw the entrance to the club house. ‘This is it.’ She smiled to herself proud that she made it this far without turning around.  She pulled up to the bag drop off.  The valet came up to her car as she popped the trunk open and steeped out.

“Good morning Mrs. Watson.”

“Good morning Roger. I have a 9:30 tee time.” She said tipping him.

“Yes Mrs. Watson.”

“Thank you Roger.” 

She went to the pro shop.  She didn’t see Paul.  She looked around for a minute then went to main lobby and saw Paul standing at the coffee bar talking with one of the waiters.  He saw her and broke into a big smile.  She started walking towards him.  Her knees felt weak, her heart started pounding hard again as she looked him up and down.  He was even more handsome to her than yesterday.

“Karen. I’m so glad to see you.” He said looking into her eyes.  His words were sweet as honey.

“Hello Paul.  I’m glad to see you too.  I’m on time.” She said smiling looking up at him.

“Yes you are my lady.  Shall we get started?”

“Yep, I’m ready.  I’ll try and bring my A game.”

They walked out to their golf cart.  The bags were leaning next to each other in the back.  Karen sat on the passenger side as Paul drove them up to the first tee. 

“Ladies first” said Paul getting out her driver handing it to her.  Karen took her driver and walked up to the first tee. She knew he was looking her long legs and short outfit.  ‘God I hope I’m turning him on!’ 

Chapter 4 ~ The After Game Get Together...

I'll be posting it soon. Stay tuned...


"My God Carol I think he's checking me out." Karen whispered to her best friend.

"What?" Carol asked.

"That cute guy that we see around the club, over there, look." Carol glanced over his way trying not to look obvious.

"I think he is. Boy what would I give to get some of that?" Carol said smiling as she took a sip of her Chardonnay.

"Noooo, I wouldn't dare Carol. Besides I'm too old for him."
