Sleepless Knight(s): The Sequel
Natalie lay in bed thinking about the conversation she'd just shared with
Nick. She got out of bed and opened the window. A cool breeze blew the
gauzy curtains around her. They felt like cool hands caressing her. She
closed her eyes imagining...
She felt something brush her thigh...
She jumped, startled.
She got a muffled meow in reply. Sidney was pacing back and forth on the
bed. His tail brushed Natalie as she stood by the open window.
She smiled to herself, boy did that conversation get out of hand. She
giggled just thinking about it. It had been exciting and a little

"Hi. We didn't finish our conversation."
"Well, it was getting kind of..."
"Well, that's not what I would have call it but..."
"Still wearing that red teddy?"
"You still wearing that smile?"
"It's more like a grin now."
Natalie walked over and flipped on the A.C.
She fell back onto the bed.
"I'm pouring a glass of sparkling champagne for you. As you sip from the
glass, I am massaging your feet, then I kiss the instep of each ever so
"Then, I brush my hands along your calves, your thighs..."
"Then...do you want to know what I do next?"
"I begin to kiss your calves, your thighs..."
"Then, do you want to know what happens next?"
"Well...you have to come over here to find out."
And he hung up the phone.
Natalie sat there dazed.
For about three seconds...
