Jen added a few more numbers to the spreadsheet, then swiveled her chair to look at Randy. "See, it's all fixed."
Randy smiled. "Jen, thanks, you're a life saver."
Jen smiled at the compliment. As a mid-level account executive, she was happy to help wherever she could, especially when it was for a senior executive like Randy. She swiveled back to face the...

Jen nervously adjusted in her seat. She reached for her martini glass, and had to concentrate to keep from shaking. She took a long sip but the Cosmopolitan didn't help calm her nerves.
"This isn't as easy as Michael thinks," she thought to herself. She felt so exposed. She couldn't remember the last time she had worn a skirt so short. Maybe her high school...

"I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry," Michael pleaded, having just gotten home from the Hudson and finding his wife crying on the sofa. "I didn't think Dick would be like that."
"What did you tell him?" Jen cried, tears running down her cheeks. "He said you said I was divorced."
"I did, but only because I wanted him to think he might have a chance with you. I...

Jen hurried to the ladies room. She was shaking and unsteady on her feet. She gripped the counter and took deep breaths to try to calm herself.
Her entire body was tingling, on fire. She felt a mix of emotions. She was angry, embarrassed, outraged, and humiliated, all at the same time.
She was also aroused. Randy oozed confidence and charisma. She wasn't...

This happened in college. One night my girlfriend Jen and I were making out in my bedroom. I had one hand inside her blouse and another up her skirt, and it was just getting really good when my roommate Ricky walked in. "Whoa, sorry," he said seeing us. "Don't worry, I'll sleep on the couch." I felt bad because I knew he'd get no sleep outside in the dorm co...

Michael and Jen had just gotten home when the phone rang. "It's Victor," Michael said to his wife. "He and Monique are in the neighborhood, and asked to stop by."
Jen froze. She wasn't ready to see Victor again, not after the last time. That's why she wouldn't go to the club, but had instead insisted that they go out by themselves to dinner and a movie.

The door opened. Jen forced a smile. "Hi," she said.
"Hi," Tom said with a big grin. He moved to the side of the doorway, inviting her in. Jen heard Tommy in the background.
Jen took a step back. "Can we talk out here?"
"Why?" Tom said still smiling. "Come on in Jenny, Tommy will want to see you."
Jen didn't want to see Tommy, not at that moment. She too...

Part 8 -- Interlude
Author's note: I got this thoughtful email via Hotmail:
I don't want to be a pest, but as a person who wants to be a fan of yours I have to send you my opinion. If it is worth anything to you use it. If not, I understand and wish you the best. I feel that as a reader it is becoming frustrating to read a story and not see an end in sight...

Jen got into the shower. Victor had just left, and Michael would be home soon. As the hot water ran through her hair and sprayed her body, she reflected on the last three months, and how her life had changed.
Jen shook her head in disbelief. She wasn't naïve. She knew some people swapped partners. She just never expected to be one of them. She and Michael w...

Jen went over to Tom's later that week. "Hey you," she said.
"Hi," he said back, and they kissed.
It was Adria's night with Tommy and Maria was off, so they had the house to themselves. Over dinner, Tom said "Thinking about it?"
"Yes, it's been on my mind a little bit," Jen said making it sound like a lighthearted joke. But it was anything but.
