Those Memories Made on Teardrop Lake – (75) The Solicitor’s Receptionist at Lunch
Pangbourne, Parker and Knowles were the firm of Shallowfield Solicitors handling the disposition of Phil Marlow’s late father’s estate which turned out to be quite protracted.
It was on the occasion of Phil Marlow’s first meeting with his Solicitor Linda Baxter that he first saw the object of his affections.
And on that first visit he gazed lustily down her top at the quite pleasing vista restrained in a pink satin bra.
Which he thought was a delightful surprise because her outer garments were very unremarkable, and when she realized he was staring down her top she quickly covered herself up and let out a rather disgusted exclamation, but then she smiled at him and blushed.
He may have thought her a straight laced prude, but he liked that, it had always turned him on, partly because of the challenge but more often than not because they turned out to be less straight laced beneath the façade.
So he returned her smile and asked
“Do you have anything with the address and phone number on?”
“Oh yes” she replied eagerly “I could give you one of my cards”
“Catherine” she said “Catherine Kimber”
“Thank you Catherine”
He wasn’t sure if he would ever call her but he had learned to keep his options open.
Phil thought that with regular visits to the offices he would get numerous opportunities to speak with her, but alas no.
And that was why he was grumpy because he had concluded his business with Pangbourne, Parker and Knowles, and he hadn’t asked her and nor had he phoned her.
But eventually he plucked up the courage and he phoned the Solicitors
“Pangbourne, Parker and Knowles”
“Hello Catherine” he said “it’s Phil Marlow”
The long awaited first date was a great success and several more followed and never disappointed but after each successive date he was left wanting more.
So when the want of seeing her became too much to bear he decided to go and surprise her at the office on Friday lunchtime even though he was seeing her that night anyway.
Once he reached the building he went upstairs to the front office but as he reached reception Catherine’s desk was unmanned and he thought he wouldn’t be going to see her after all.
Which was a shame because he’d really looked forward to surprising her.
“Oh well another time” he said to himself and headed back towards the door which was when he saw her at the other end of the corridor, she hadn’t seen him as she was reading a document as she walked.
He had to think quickly so he opened the disabled toilet door and stepped in and waited until she was passing
“Where are you going?” he asked as he pulled her into the toilet and quickly closed the door and in response she threw herself into his arms.
“Are you here to rob me or ravish me?”
“I think you already know the answer to that” he replied and kissed her
“Have you got long?” he asked between kisses
“I’m on my lunch break” she replied
“Good what would you like for lunch then?”
“You” she replied and began kissing him
After a prolonged kiss she said
“That was the best lunch ever”
“Back to work now then” he suggested
“And look forward to dinner” Catherine added
So they reluctantly said goodbye but he was waiting for her when she finished work and they went for an early dinner after which she took him home and kept him there until Monday morning.
