I really needed a break. After talking to the family, they reminded me that my sister had a house on the beach that would be a perfect stress reducer. I packed up and was warmly received. My sister was a busy person, but I had the run of the place, and no responsibilities - which was important.
This story takes place in the land of "What if?" In 1978, The US Congress became alarmed at the absolute explosion of child porn and the fact that it was big business. Before, only a couple of small jurisdictions had attempted to battle cp, but when it was revealed that cp was forecasted to earn one million that year (BIG money back then), the Congress stepped in and outlawed cp.
At long last I was able to get my dream car, but the amount of the down-payment and associated costs blindsided me. I took a second job on the weekend working room service until my bank account had been repaired. I quickly impressed the room service manager, who wished he could have me full-time, so when the hotel had special guests it was a no-brainer that I was assigned to deliver to the penthouse.
The divorce had been very bitter. My mother ended up with custody. She moved us 800 miles away from our upper-Midwest home to one in the very rural, arid southwest. I grew up sheltered in the middle of nowhere and I longed for rescue, for adventure - to go anywhere but where I was. The opportunity for escape came when I was 17.
"Shhh, be quiet" I whispered as I peeked in the back door to the barracks. I looked at the duty NCO desk, it was vacant. North had done his job. I called him ten minutes earlier and asked him to distract the duty NCO so I could sneak Tammy into the barracks, and my room. Without a single question, he agreed. The plan was working. "Let's go" I whispered. Holding Tammy's hand, I led through the back door and quickly through the rec room into the main hallway.
Two days into our holiday and Lucy (11) and Paula (13) already had too much sun by the pool. Both girls needed a little care, even after being told that they should be careful in the sun. My daughter Lucy was up and about by 8:00am that morning, already dressed for the pool, hair tied back, looking a little raw around the shoulders due to overdoing the sun-worshipping.
It was 3 weeks before our family holiday, and I had promised Sarah (12) and Laura (10) a day's shopping to buy their holiday clothes. It was almost 9:30am and they had already had breakfast and were really excited about going shopping. Since I needed a few things from the town centre I went along with them, but arranged that they go to buy their clothes alone and I would meet them for lunch.
The kids in the school referred to them as the 'Twin Mints'. Rhonda Wiener and Jeanne Ferrante did everything together. Moreover, the girls, who were the best of friends, just happened to be the two most beautiful girls in the school.
"The decision is yours Judge. You can either have a great night of pleasure or you can go home now; to an empty house," he was told.
Bill Murray slumped back on the couch and looked around the room, first at the young black girl who was in the same situation as he and then at the man who was making him the offer/threat.
