Dawn 4 – Love on the Rocks

Hands up those of you who thought I had done or would do the dirty deed with Dawn?

Well you were wrong.  Tempted, oh yes, but I did not give in to temptation.  What a hero!

Flattered as I was I kept a level head (if you will excuse the expression) and very gently told her that she was very sexy and beautiful, but in these circumstances it would be very wrong.  If she wanted me to help her with her little problem I would have to maintain a professional distance so as to be objective.

She responded by saying she understood and immediately removed the rest of her clothes and got into bed and started to outline the problem.  I was done in and in need of some shut eye, so I got down to my boxers and tee shirt and trying hard to conceal my traitorous friend got into bed beside her.

She lay in the bed on her side and looked me.  She smiled and stroked the side of my face.  I smiled back but did not say anything.  She then started to tell me her story. As I mentioned before Dawn was some kind of International contracts lawyer and her story was articulate and without superfluous details or frills.

To cut a long story short, it would seem that the BIL had been spending a lot of time working late.  Initially this was genuine and fuelled by his desire to be richer than he is.  This came as a surprise, because although a bit prissy and always had a very flash jam jar and designer threads he has never struck me as being greedy.  I suppose they liked their Club Med Holidays and the like and they don’t come cheap, but even so I had not had him down as being so financially motivated..  This was only the first of several revelations about him that made me look at him in a different light.

The working late went from being occasional to the norm.  Then he started coming home smelling of drink, then this became semi pissed every now and very soon it was almost every night.  This sort of drinking is not good not matter how you looked at it, but bearing in mind he worked in London and they lived out on the Surrey/Berkshire borders meant he had a long way to drive was not the best idea.  Dawn by way of retaliation was getting stuck into the grog as well.  She stopped cooking his grub, which instead of getting his goat, just didn’t bother him.  He got home later and later, they both got more and more pissed.

Their sex life started to dwindle.  Jeez, what a shocker.

Apparently they had been an every other night couple with some very interesting deviations.  For the benefit of the more sensitive reader I will skip some of the details, but I have to say I was starting to look at both Dawn and the BIL in a very different light from before.

The sex stopped totally.  He would get home at about 10pm maybe later, sober enough to be coherent but pissed enough to be clumsy and have memory loss the next morning.  It would seem that they already had an extensive collection of sex toys already and she would wait till he came home and got into bed and then she would start using them on herself.  He would read his Andy McNab book and the doze off.

“You know” she said “I would use those big vibrators and imagine it was you and I wanted you so badly.  I always have, but by this stage the feeling of needing you was over whelming”  I wasn’t sure of the size she was talking about, but I had an inkling that reality would not match the plastic.  She went quite and then looked at me in a very odd way “When Alison died I thought that God had given me a break and that I could come and look after you and that would give the the opportunity to get you to fall in love with me” she laughed “You never even noticed me and in fact you became so distant from everyone that I could have sat on your face and I don’t think you would have noticed.”

I knew what she was saying, but I think even I would have noticed her sitting on my face.  Its the sort of thing one notices.

“I tried so hard, maybe too hard, because you just got more and more snappy with me”

I thought about this and recalled a few of the spats I had had with her over the last few years.  With horror I realised she was dead right.  At the time I thought she was just being a pain, when in reality she was trying to get closer to me rather than alienating me.

“I am very sorry” I said rather lamely “I….” she held a finger to my lips

“Don’t say anymore.  Sorry is enough and really I should have done things differently.  Anyway what’s done is done.  I became more and more lonely, Simon was obviously having an affair and my one love..” she gave me a playful dig in the ribs “Did not want me.  I contemplated suicide one day.  Actually it was for about 30 seconds, but it did cross my mind.  And then I started surfing the internet just killing time.  I found and  started reading a blog written by a woman called Dee.  I liked her style and started commenting and then we started exchanging emails”

“So how did that become an affair?” I asked

“To be honest I don’t know, it just happened.  We started communicating more and more by email and the emails became more and more…intimate, until we were having…” she tailed off.

“Sex by correspondence?” I offered.

Dawn laughed “Yes that’s it”

“So what’s the problem then?” I asked a little bemused

“Well, it would seem this woman is not who she says she is”


“Well she knows a lot about me and I don’t know anything about her and then she emailed me one day about a week ago and said it was over and that she was not who she said she was”

“Right, so you broke up effectively, but you had never met is that right?” I said a little confused as to what the problem really was.

“No we never met” she confirmed

“And so you never had any actual physical contact”

“No we didn’t” she confirmed

“So what’s the problem” I asked

“She has tried to blackmail me”


“She says she will tell Simon everything if I don’t do as she asks” she said sounding genuinely worried and looking frightened.

“Fucking big deal, from what you say he wouldn’t give a toss”

“Well that’s the rub” she said slowly “I think she knows Simon, because she said something that only Simon and I would know about a client he was working on.  We don’t sit in total silence you know.  Despite the things I have said the weekends are civilized and we have not reached the point of open hostility in front of the kids.  Wes till function as a family during holidays and when the kids are around, so we do talk about things”

“What does she want from you?”

“Permission to use my emails in a book”

“Look Dawn,  I don’t see that you have a problem with this woman that cannot be controlled and possibly turned to your advantage.  lets be frank here you have not actually done anything with her have you? No physical contact at all let alone lesbian sex. To be honest  you would have more difficulty explaining being in bed naked with me to somebody than your relationship with her wouldn’t you?”

“Yes, but you wouldn’t blackmail would you, and the very fact that she has made the threat suggests to me that she has something up her sleeve”

She was not going to be persuaded there was nothing wrong.  The months of hitting the bottle, the break down of the marriage the sexual aspect of her relationship with this woman was all so inextricably connected that there was no way Dawn would accept there was not a problem.  I had a couple of ideas of how this could be resolved.  One was subtle and could actually make Dawn some money and the other was not subtle and would involve a couple of the lads.

“Ok” I said “Lets get this sorted, I will start on it asap for you, but you must trust me 100%”

“Do you think I would be lying here if I didn’t”

“No I suppose not” I admitted

She smiled and said “Thank you” and then kissed me.

“I am silly aren’t I” she said rather sadly

“No you’re not silly, you just want to be loved like everyone else.  The problem is that you have fallen in love with an insensitive, murderous, black hearted self centred bastard” I said

“But I love YOU!” she blurted

“I know, Who the hell did you think I was talking about”.

    Wow, I was just stopping by to tell you I haven’t heard from Claire since Dec 7th. Thanks to you she sent me a letter.

    However, your story captured my interest and from my point of view, Dawn seems to be a rather lucky woman. Cheers! Too enticing. Having said that, I shall go and make myself a cup of tea and perhaps take a cold shower too.
