Wednesday Story Day – AKA – Hump Day

Hump Day


It is Wednesday Story Day time again. Whew, last week we saw Harriet and Alice go to dinner. After the first drink, Harriet starts acting a little frisky and moves next to Alice. This after she warned Alice to knock off trying to rekindle their relationship. We better get back before the next drink is served.

“Now isn’t this cozy.”
“What happened to you not wanting to start anything between us.”
“Oh come on dear. I have a public persona and a private one.”
“So the public wants me to stay away.”
“And the private wants to ravish you.”
“You better watch those drinks. You okay?”
“Of course, I’m okay. Ah here’s the waiter with another drink. Keep these coming boy.”
“Yes, ma’am.”
“Now Alice. Let’s drink to the future.”
“Okay, that sounds good. To the future then.”
“Hear hear.”
“So Harriet.”
“Yes dear.”
“What is in the future.”
“Well, we both have each other and that wonderful boy.”
“Wonderful boy?”
“Yes. I found out his parents have been killed, so he has no one.”
“I think we all know that. Seth’s been talking about nothing else.”
“Yeah, Whatever. The point is he has nobody. A perfect opportunity for us to more or less a adopt him.”
“I may have had too much to drink, but I’m not sure I like the sounds of what you just said.”
“In what way?”
“I don’t know, but when you sat adopt, it sounds like you have some creepy plan.”
“Don’t make me laugh. you mean like holding the boy as a sex slave?”
“Well, it had crossed my mind.”
“To hold him as a sex slave?”
“No Harriet. It crossed my mind you would do that.”
“You poor thing. Don’t you know? Wait, you of all people should realize, I have given up men.”
“You could have an interest in both.”
“Please. There is nothing a man can give me that I can’t get from you.”
“You say the sweetest things.”
“Don’t pout. You know what I meant.”
“Yes, I know. Does this mean we are going to get together again?”
“Let me answer that in the morning. You are staying over right?”
“You have always know how to woo a woman. I suppose.”
“Good. It is settled then. I think we should tell the waiter we can proceed with the dinner.”
“I’ll drink to that. You excite me, Harriet.”
“You say that to all the boys. Thank you anyway.”

    Hmm, why do I feel like there’s one more shoe to drop in this story? Sometimes a week is just too long to wait! 🙂

  2. I agree with Gwen, when do we hear the next shoe drop?

  3. Getting interesting. Poor guy has no idea what’s waiting for him.

    1. I think you are right, Charles. No idea at all.

  4. I agree with Charles. I don’t see this turning out well for the poor lad who killed lost his parents.

    1. Yes he seems like a lamb on milk.

  5. I agree with the first comment, a week is too long to wait. Meanwhile, back in ICU, Lucas’ ears are burning. And Seth, hmm we haven’t heard from him. 4th of July weekend coming, all kinds of fireworks potential here in Antionville (gotta love that name, though)

    1. There could be a big burst to celebrate the fourth. Thanks Dan. You should run for mayor.

      1. I don’t want to officiate at a shotgun marriage. Holding on tight.

  6. If ther next move is that Lucas ends up with Seth I’m going to start eating hats. Unless of course he ends up as Seth’s prisoner on a double (?) murder charge.

    1. I love the expression “I’m eating hats,” David. Thank you. 😀

  7. Well, Harriet may not have a sexual interest in Lucas, but Alice certainly does. These two are weaving a tangled web and poor Lucas has NO idea. 🙂 But, knowing you, John, there will be a surprise or two more. Perhaps Lucas has no interest in women. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

    1. Oooooh. I lie that, Jan 😀

      1. Lie, or Like? 🙂 Hope you’re having a blast!!

      2. Like. Typo. Thanks.

  8. It never ends well when two women have different designs on a hapless male. I hope he has had a good breakfast.

    1. Ha ha ha . Thanks, Sally

  9. I can’t figure these two out or where the next twist is headed, but I feel like you’re setting up a new twist. Hmm…

      1. Why do I hear diabolical laughter in the background? 🙂

      2. Must be the radio. Moooohahahahah

  10. This story is one of your wildest yet, John. I love the doggie up at the top. What enthusiasm. 😀 — Suzanne

    1. Thanks Suzanne. Glad you liked it.

  11. Wow, this story is really heating up, good sir! I’m with Gwen, waiting a week is awfully hard – but we have it easy compared to poor old Lucas who likely has these ladies exactly where he wants them. Great twist, Mr. John!

    1. Thank you, John. 😀

  12. Come on Beer:30 😀 Finally getting a break.
    I can’t shake the feeling that there is a “spider” weaving this tangled web, John. But I do not think the spider is either of those “black widows”…
    John, you are better at the twist than Chubby Checker, so there’s just no telling. Keep having fun in Scotland! Hugs.

    1. I couldn’t get the You Tube to work. think it was Roar by Katy Perry but can’t be sure. We are having fun. Thanks, Teagan.

      1. Sorry… It was an old film of Chubby doing the twist… But when they attach commercials, there’s no telling… Stay warm. Hugs.

      2. Thanks anyway. Staying warm is a challenge.

  13. Such a creepy turn this week! Okay, John, my interest is piqued, so write on. Hope you’re having a lovely trip!

    1. Thank you, Debbie. I certainly am having a nice trip.

  14. It sounds like the poor lad is stepping into something!
    Thanks for taking the time to drop a link at the party! I hope you enjoy Scotland as much as we did!

  15. Lucas faking his death is sounding even better.

    1. Ha ha ha. Thanks, Teri.

    1. Thank you, Traci for the mention
