She's 25 and if she can't get her best friend, neighbor, and only love to show her what making love is all about she's going to die a virgin! He says he will never marry, so be it, but surely he could show her just once? He has a dark ugliness in his soul that he believes makes him unfit to be any woman's wife, especially someone raised with the ladylike expectations of marriage as his JC has! But she is determined to open 'Pandora's Box' (and I really did argue that even if I could write what she was telling me there was stuff in that Box I couldn't, just couldn't, publish!) and she was just as determined her story would be told! Too bad about another story half-written - or my wimpishness!

I thought I could get away with writing a quick novella (which I could hide in the bottom of a drawer) and then she would be happy. Not! I started writing it at the beginning of July and it's already 66,000 words long with probably another 20,000 to go. And it's the kind of story I really considered dredging up a pseudonym for.
