Welcome to the 165th week of My Sexy Saturday
This week’s theme: My Sexy Adventure
This week in keeping with the theme and Halloween, a snip from Lost Time. Hannah Keys thinks she's setting off on the adventure of a lifetime—a month in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland—but after one mishap after another—beginning with her best friend abandoning her in the airport and ending with the man of her dreams dead—she's renaming it the vacation from hell.
“Look, Hannah, I don’t know what to say or what you saw. Gran swears he’s here. I’ve never actually seen him, so I don’t really believe it, but I will admit some strange stuff goes on here that defies explanation. If you ran into him last night, I’m sorry that he scared you.”
“He didn’t…scare me… You’re scaring me. You’re trying to make me believe that…that the guy I”—she almost said ‘fucked’ before she caught herself—“met was a ghost?”
“Well, I guess you should consider yourself lucky that he didn’t frighten you. I’ve gotta go get some work done before you need to leave.”
He began to walk out of the room. Hannah jumped up and gripped his arm as near hysteria climbed up her sore throat. “The guy, in the portrait. He’s dead?”
“Well, I don’t know. I assume he is. That painting has been here as long as I can remember. It was here when Gran was a child, she told me before. Her family has lived here for generations.”
Hannah began to tremble uncontrollably. Jake lowered her into a chair.
“It’s okay, Hannah. You’ll be all right. I’ll get you out of here. I’ll take you to Swansea and you can just carry on with your trip. Just think of the story you’ll get to tell when you get back to Canada.”
The story she’d get to tell? Who the hell would believe her? Oh, by the way, Cass, I shagged a ghost while I was in the UK. They’d lock her up and throw away the key for sure.

Hope you enjoyed the snip.
Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
