Eldorado Part 7.

*Before…

“I just did some rough calculations and I think because we are lighter and we do not displace as much water and have less drag and we’re not utterly dependent on the wind we will be able to catch up with the cad in time.”

I blink. “In time for?” Wow that was a lot of silver dollar words.

“Hopefully if my estimates are true before we have to cross and go around Cape Horn.”

I blink and nod. I did that once and our ship was taking it’s time and we waited a full day and a half for the weather that the captain had wanted.

I look at Daniel and we both nod and Dr. Faraday looks at us both. “Perhaps you both should have a plan of action for when we do catch up with them.”

*And Now…

Eldorado part 6.

Eldorado…Part 6.

*Before…

I come out and she and Daniel are there waiting and I sort of blush at them being so close to such a personal thing and all but they don’t mention things and soon we’re show to our quarters. They’re small, just enough for our things and a folding cot from the wall but it is private.

I look at Daniel and I see him blush as I do as we likely had the same idea. That these beds will not be comfortable to make love in or on.

She catches the look and then she’s looking at Daniel with this look of …oh really…and it’s the oh really you slept with her too look.

I look at her trying to be a straight shooter. “We did, I hope that that won’t be a problem will it?”

“Just let me get a quick spritz of perfume—just to freshen it up, you know… OOPS! Did I spritz that in your face? Silly me!” The red-headed bombshell watches his face screw up into a grimace; like he is going to sneeze…then his eyes sort of glaze over and he sits there with a silly grin on his face.

Author's Note: When I read an article about identity theft some time back, it occurred to me that such thieves better be very careful whose identity they steal.

* * * * *

T-Jay watched from the shadows while the guy from Apartment 307 tossed his trash into the dumpster. He waited till the old coot ambled back into the building. Sure that nobody was watching, he ran over and grabbed the three loosely tied plastic bags. He turned and ran back into his own apartment, locking his door behind him.

The Housemate Chapter 2

Chapter 2:

Warning: Description of nudity, mention of male private parts, slight humiliation.

I tugged and pulled at my restraints but it was useless. The handcuffs were definitely real ones, not the plastic ones sold as toys. What on earth just happened?! They called me Claire--why? This is an all girls house and we don't want any changes--what did they have in plan for me. I started screaming through the stuff gag.

The door burst open and the lights came back on. "Stop that noise will you?" Lauren screamed.

Habeus Corpus

Habeas Corpus
by Ellie Dauber © 2002

Hugh Feldman was an excellent lawyer and a chauvenist S.O.B. He antagonized every woman he met until he met one who knew how to deal with him.

This is another "gargoyle"; that is, a short piece written as a break while I did a longer story.

The title, by the way, is a pun, explanation at story's end.
