Those Memories Made on Teardrop Lake – (12) No Hiding Place (Part 01)
In number two Folly Cottages the rain was beating hard on the bedroom window panes as Evangeline and Siti lay naked beneath the duvet.
“I didn’t know you liked me like that” Siti said “I didn’t even know I liked you like that”
Eva chuckled and kissed her forehead and said
“Well you definitely know now”
They both giggled and the Siti kissed Eva with warmth and passion
“I guess so” she said
After a few minutes Siti said
“I thought you said that before you came here you lived in Millmoor with a firefighter”
“I did” she replied “her name was Roxy”
“Oh” she said and laughed “Did you love her?”
“I thought I did” Eva replied “until she started hitting me”
Siti went rigid in response to her answer
“But that’s all in the past” she said and Siti relaxed
They lay in silence for about an hour before Evangeline said softly
“Are you going to stay the night?”
Siti cuddled up to her really close which Eva took to mean yes.
The next morning Siti was in a bit of a panic, she hadn’t really thought through the implications of staying the night, in terms of getting home to change without being seen.
The crux of her problem was that she wasn’t ready for everyone to know.
“I’m just not ready” she said “It’s not that I’m ashamed, honest”
“I understand” Eva said
“No I mean it, I’m not sorry” she reiterated “I don’t regret it for a second”
“Siti darling, I really do understand” and she kissed her
“I think it will be fun if we sneak around for a while, and then when we’re ready we can tell people”
So Eva got dressed in her uniform while Siti put her dry clothes on.
She was finished first and then sat on the bed and watched Evangeline
“You look really hot in your uniform” Siti said
“You can stop that dirty talk or I’ll have you back in bed” Eva retorted
“I wouldn’t mind” She said and blushed
“You dirty little receptionist” Eva said and kissed her wetly.
It was early for Evangeline to be leaving the house but she had to drop Siti off at her flat so she had time to get dressed into her work clothes.
She pulled up outside the Bengal and let her out, they couldn’t kiss just in case they were seen, and so they hugged instead, which was a perfectly normal thing for them to do.
But Eva nibbled on Siti’s ear which was not.
Siti got out and then Eva drove to the surgery and was the first one to arrive for the first time since she’d been there.
She was standing in reception talking to Lynn when Siti arrived,
“Good morning” she said
“Hi Siti” Eva said “Did you sleep well?”
Evangeline thought it was all very cloak and dagger, all rather exciting and actually made her quite hot.
It was raining hard again that night when they left work so Eva said
“Do you want a lift Siti?”
“No its fine” she replied
“I really think you should let me” Eva insisted and gave her a look
“Oh, oh yes” she said finally understanding what was happening and they spent their second night together, this time in Siti’s bed.
After Evangeline left the next morning Siti was smiling as she watched from her flat as Eva drove up the road and then sighed a contented sigh.
She was really happy in Shallowfield it was the perfect place to hide from her husband.
Her migration to Downshire took a considerable amount of time but once she arrived in Shallowfield she felt like she’d come home.
She loved Shallowfield because it wasn’t the kind of place you passed through on your way to somewhere else and she liked that very much.
If you were in Shallowfield it was because that was where you were headed for in the first place.
You know people in a place like Shallowfield and you noticed strangers easily which was very important to her.
Siti had lived in Shallowfield for over ten years and she really liked it, she felt safe there.
Which is why when she lost her job at the surgery she would rather do a menial job at Anu’s general store than leave for a bigger town with greater opportunities.
