The 28-year-old English lecturer was lost in her thoughts following her run in with Mrs Main and she had a lot to think about. Her rapidly spinning head was still reeling with the agreement she had made. She was still blushing for God’s sake, and at both ends, she thought ruefully. One more run-in and […]


Punishment

The rough cotton smock scratched, not that it surprised her. She was totally naked under it and even outside of a judicial institution luxury was hard to find in this far off country. Helen was alone now. The woman from the British Consulate had left in disgust, a harassed dour woman, not yet 40, but […]

She had all the answers. She would turn up and then give him a piece of her mind. What did he know anyway? He was so old, he must be 60 at least, well 50 anyway. She made it all the way down the hall with that attitude and knocked. Anyway, she was way too […]
