Mornington-By-Mere – (70) Cathy’s Tale (Part 04)
Cathy was sitting on Dave’s lap with her arms wrapped serpent like around his neck and she was snorting loudly as passion was taking hold when they were discovered.
“What are you doing?” Gillian screamed “leave Mama alone”
Dave was taken by surprise and broke away from Cathy’s mouth.
“No don’t stop” Cathy begged “Please don’t stop”
“Mama?” Gillian quiried “you want him to?”
“I asked him to” she confessed
“Tell the truth” Dave instructed
“I… begged him” she admitted.
Within moments of her admittion Cathy was kissing him again as Gillie stared wide eyed like a deer caught in the headlights.
When the kiss ended, Dave and Cathy looked at the young girl who went beetroot red and ran out of the room.
Cathy sat on his lap and looked at her reflection in the window and smiled weakly and thought she hadnt felt that alive for more than two years and at the same moment Gillian had run to the front door.
She was cross because she had embarrassed herself, not that she was shocked to see her step mum kissing a man, nor was she angry at the situation she loved Cathy and it was about time she started to live again, the overwhelming emotion she felt when she watched them was jealousy.
Not that she wanted to kiss Dave and she certainly didn’t want to kiss Cathy, she didn’t love her in that way, she was jelous of the intimacy and the tenderness, she wanted that but she wanted it with someone else.
Gillian opened the front door and was surprised to see Dave’s apprentice, Owen Mumford, standing there.
“Oh it’s you” she said and threw herself into his arms, the very arms she had pictured herself in a few minutes earlier.
After being discovered in the act Cathy concluded the kiss with Dave but after Gillian had left the room Cathy suddenly felt foolish and self concious
“I need to go and find Gillian” she said as Dave watched in silence unable to formulate a response.
Half an hour later he was just leaving the kitchen with his stuff when Cathy walked back in
“Is she ok?” he asked
“I couldn’t find her” she replied
“How are you feeling?” he asked
“Confused” she replied and turned away
Cathy sat on her bed and looked at herself in the mirror she really hadnt felt that alive for more than two years but although his intimate kiss was intensly electrifying the pleasure he had given her was a double edged sword.
She wanted him but she felt guilty at betraying her husbands memory despite how much she wanted him and how much she enjoyed the kiss.
She dismissed Dave after the kiss and went in search of her step daughter.
But while she was sitting alone on her bed lamenting what might have been, she made the decision to live her life.
So the next day she phoned Dave to say that one of the radiators was leaking and he said he would be round as soon as he could.
