Summer With Em Chapter 39

By Julie D Cole

Friday just couldn’t come quick enough for me. Whilst I didn’t much want to leave Manchester at least my visit home would be short and we were booked in a hotel in Kensington so I was unlikely to meet anyone I knew. Staying in a hotel was another first for me.

Patrick apologised that he was the substitute but promised Tracey would be back soon to give her approval and make any final recommendations since it was her salon now. She had taken out a loan and with some private financial support from a friend she had bought out the owner. Jobs were secure because the salon had a good reputation and he was now the senior stylist.

Christmas is Coming

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas so I decided to look back at one of my stories 'Lost & Found'.
It was a fictional story for a competition that inspired me to write around a real life situation. No fantasy just an example of human kindness after personal tragedy.
Anybody got any recommendations for a nice read, story or book on Amazon, since Christmas is coming?

I had no idea what suddenly came over me to agree to wear a dress but it looked good and Eve said it fitted perfectly although it was low cut at the front, quite short in length and sleeveless. There hardly seemed enough material to fit me anywhere.

The afternoon was spent lazing around sun-bathing with a chance to sleep off the wine we had with our snacks. It was hot and with no cloud cover we had to apply lots of sun cream and move under the umbrellas from time to time. I focused on getting my legs tanned and this was an advantage of high cut bikini bottoms rather than my swimming shorts,

Remembrance Day - Lest We Forget

Since we have many new readers I decided to re-post this story today on Remembrance Sunday that was lost in my story list. It is posted as a tribute to those who served and those who were lost.
My own father went all through North Africa and Italy and survived to come home but a lot of his colleagues were killed. He took his bad memories to his grave.

By Julie D Cole

We giggled for a while before Frankie reluctantly decided that we should get up and go to work. I knew she had a very responsible management job and I shouldn’t distract her or encourage her to set a bad example to her staff. I also wanted to be respectful to Bec’s since she had been so kind to me and I enjoyed the job I was doing.

Summer With Em - Chapter 32

By Julie D Cole,

As soon as I got an oportunity I sent a message to Frankie asking her if she’d mind coming earlier than planned so she could meet mum. I felt that I ought to ensure that mum was comfortable with me staying with Frankie. I’d never stayed with anybody before apart from this visit to Em’s who was family.

By Julie D Cole

I burst into tears and ran to the nearest bathroom across the entrance foyer. It didn’t matter that it was the female toilet I went into. I was past caring if anybody complained and who cares anyway. I seemed to be more and more emotional these days that coincided with arriving in Manchester.

I barely had the chance to sip my milky drink but I didn’t need it. I slipped under my sheets and hugged the spare pillow feeling very relaxed and found that I couldn’t get Frankie out of my mind. In her company I felt she had complete control of our budding relationship and when she’d kissed me I didn’t want her to stop.

Summer With Em - Chapter 22

By Julie D Cole

As I swiped the screen on my phone to end the call it felt like a huge weight had been lifted from my shoulders. It was like I was being given a complete free reign to stay as I was and continue to explore this other side of me. Nobody so far had seemed to be critical or embarrassed. Only me I suppose.

Summer With Em - Chapter 21

By Julie D Cole

Our dinner snack was uneventful with fairly meaningless chatter most of the time to allow Bec’s to calm down without any need for further explanation. She was clearly Em’s girlfriend and my boss at the same time. Right now she seemed vulnerable rather than the assured and confident Manager who had interviewed me.

Summer With Em - Chapter 20

By Julie D Cole

I was glad to see that Frankie smiling again and enjoying the music. I had no idea how close we were to Ems but at least Frankie seemed to have recovered from the sadness of visiting the graves of her parents and Steph. She decided to call Em using hands free on her phone so we were on loudspeaker.

Summer With Em – Part 19

By Julie D Cole

By the time we arrived back at Frankies car she had calmed down enough to drive. I was relieved because I had absolutely no idea of how I might have reacted if a close friend had taken their own life in such circumstances and here I was dressing and behaving as the opposite gender and feeling comfortable at last.

By Julie D Cole

As I left the building I immediately noticed Frankies car that was immaculate and it looked as if it had just left the showroom. The top was down and she was leaning against it looking every bit the young executive with her sunglasses perched on her head and her hair tied back in a bun.

Bec’s smiled at me as I opened the bedroom door because I knocked first out of politeness. I couldn’t resist a peek and I noticed that Em was snuggled up under the sheets. She heard us and peered out and pulled herself up to lean on one elbow. I heard a sleepy acknowledgement of our presence ‘ Hi Kim.’

A Friend in Need

One of our members needs all our support since she has suffered tremendous cruelty after rejection by her family. She was brave enough to explain her situation in a blog and received quite a few comments offering support and advice.
It would be great if a lot more of us showed her their support and friendship to avoid her carrying out her threat. She has suffered a lot and she needs encouragement.
She is registered as Mantori and her name is Samantha.
I want her to realise she can make lots of friends on this site to help her understand that nobody needs to be alone.

By Julie D Cole

It was clear that Em, Amy and George knew Fran as they greeted each other warmly with hugs and kisses. Not quite as intimate as Em and Bec’s however who held hands as they turned to face me.

Em spoke ‘Kim this is Fran, short for Francesca but she is not into girly names. Sorry Fran but it’s true isn’t it.’

By Julie D Cole
I’m just picking back up on this story that I neglected in error. I intent to complete it shortly.
……………………………………………………………………

Em decided I should wear a white tunic style top with several buttons that was loose fitting and extended half way down my thighs to cover any evidence of a bulge (not much to show) and it complemented a pair of her black high waist leggings that reached my ankles. Without my binding my breasts were clearly visible so Em produced a white sports bra. She thought it looked OK but would have preferred I wore a bra.

The Visit - Chapter 26

Chapter 26
Robert was out of bed before Adele stirred and he listened to the early morning chorus that was a rare opportunity for him growing up in the central district of Bristol. He was usually at work at 6am in any case and rarely left before 6 pm so days were long and hard for little reward.

The Visit - Chapter 22

The visit.jpg

Chapter 22

After the shock of the declaration by Aunt Roberta Robert and Adele held hands beneath the table so that each knew the other was supportive and not offended. Aunt Roberta looked on and saw the glances between them that confirmed her judgement that they had a special relationship. It was at least some compensation to her for the losses she’d endured in her lifetime.
