Stick Her Shock - Part 19

Chapter 37

Jackie and Sandy looked at each other. Neither had ever really considered talking about the secret that started the whole mess. Sure they'd talked a bit about it the night before last but that had been more about the aftermath. It was like Jack had disappeared and been replaced by a completely different person.

Sylvia turned to Marsha and Dana.

"Perhaps I could have some time alone with Jackie and Sandy?"

"Sis? Will you be alright?"

We left then to return to the house. On the way we persuaded Katharina to go to New York and come back with Maureen and ThreeB for the picnic. She was a bit unsure about going and meeting people she did not know, but I calmed her by telling her, that she would talk to Maureen on the phone beforehand. Now it was time to have a serious chat with Esme. I did not like her plotting at all in this instance. Maybe Grishka was ready in her opinion, but for one I disagreed. And Katharina certainly wasn’t. Angela just looked at me and grinned.
“Oh, my love, I am really going to enjoy what will happen now.”
I just grinned.
“What do you think will happen now?” Katharina asked her.
“I think, for the fist time in her life, the mighty Esmeralda will get to be seriously told off.” Angela giggled.

Jacinta, part 17

“Wake up it’s a beautiful morning…” The sound of the old nineties song by the Boo Radleys blares from my phone, raising me from my slumber and reminding me that I have a big day ahead of me. After I rise from my bed, I pad through to the bathroom, reminded every step of the way that I’ve had plenty of big days over the last few weeks as well.

I Can't Give You Anything But Love, Baby

Adrenaline surged...daring every sensory organ in my body to absorb the tiniest nuances of my first day out in public dressed as a woman. I touched the velvety skin on my wife's arm. "I'm so lucky!"

"Lucky?" Nicole shook her head in obvious bewilderment. "You've always wanted to be a woman," she had accurately said nearly eight months ago.

Miao Ling Grace and Siobhan Llewellyn are seemingly destined to be together. The pair learn later that Grace's brother Cretein and a girl he meets in college, Justine MacNamara, are integral to that destiny in ways that defy mere coincidence.

Though my first installment is easily acceptable to general audiences, later installments will have sections meant for adults only. That is to say:
At times, this story is not safe for work and truly not acceptable reading for those under 18.

It was a rather subdued Grishka, who returned from the walk on his own. Sasha greeted him back and looked into his eyes then said:
“You feel rejected, because Mamushka and Angela spent the night without you?”

WARNING: I know many of you have bad memories that certain scenes incolving violence and/or sexual assault may trigger and this part contains such a scene and I did not want to depend on a simple caution in the header as 16 parts into story it is likely they are not looked at any longer. What takes place is integral to the story unfortunately and I understand if you choose not to read it or what follows after. If so I thank you for reading to this point.

Lifeline 5

We were still naked when Ken came back in, his figure shadowy through the shower curtain.

“Got you this, duck. Clean clothes are on the table. Pair of flip-flops in her size as well, as long as those were her shoes”

He handed a safety razor and a pair of scissors over the top of the curtain rail, then blurred again as he moved away, calling back, “I can change the filter tomorrow, so don’t worry unless it clogs”

Chapter 28

The two of them sat there considering their options. The important thing to Jackie was whatever they decided to do, they were doing it together.

"As I see it I really don't have any choice but to play out Cindy's game until I can either figure it out or get my CPA recertification and look for another job."

The evening had been a quiet one, all of us more or less exhausted or lost in our own thoughts, but it had nevertheless been a companionable silence. I had had to convince Grishka of the necessity to keep out of the filming with a compromise. We would go together, Grishka, Sasha and I, an hour before meeting Constantin, by which time Sasha and he would be gone and they would keep to Sasha’s bedroom, while the interview was going on. Biggi, on the other hand I wanted to be home to greet Angela and myself as a token to the truth. She had no problem with that, as it was free advertising for her shop. We would keep quiet about the picnic, though.

Chapter 26

Jackie was nearly in tears when they reached the car but they were tears of anger. She turned on Sandy.

"My life is in the crapper and it's all your fault!"

Sandy was surprised by the pure vitriol in that statement. Up to now Jackie had pretty much blamed herself but this was Jack speaking not her.

Presidents' Day


Presidents' Day
By Bobbie Cabot

- - - - -

This is the story of the country's first transsexual president, and her struggle to be accepted by her people. It wasn't something she sought out, but now that she was in the White House, she had to do her best for the country, though it was hard going when one was transgender, not to mention a transsexual, and many were still not accepting even if it was the middle of the 21st century already.

Once in the office Jackie's heartbeat slowly returned to a more normal pace. Tess looked glad to see them as she handed the headset back to Joy and returned to her desk.

Joy pulled a second headset out of her desk and handed it to her after making sure it was working. Now she could listen in as Joy handled incoming calls, hearing both the client and her.

Chapter 22

Joy led the way to her car. Jackie wondered how she managed to fit her very large belly behind the steering wheel. She must of been a contortionist in a previous life. In just minutes she pulled up to a small deli. Jackie opened her eyes when she heard the engine shut off. Joy, the woman with the sweet and bubbly personality turned into Dale Earnhardt, the Intimidator, on the road.

"Hurry up. I have to use the bathroom."

I arrived at Hamburg Hauptbahnhof shortly before midnight. This time I had asked the conductor early to please wake me in case I had fallen asleep, but this time I did not. My thoughts had been with my love. I was so looking forward to holding her again, waking up next to her, caring for her, loving her. I would take some days off, knowing that my team would have my back, as would have Harry and the president. I would definitely need to book at least a couple of sessions with Dr. Baumann, but most of all I wanted to spend time with Angela, Grishka, Sasha and Sergeij. And I also needed to talk to Esmeralda about Agatha and Heinrich in Wiesbaden.

Mother and Daughter, part 12

“Hey girlies,” Lindsay said with a grin as Ellie, Monique and Kacey entered the packed coffee shop and slumped heavily into their seats. “Should I ask?”

“Ugh, I’d prefer it if you didn’t,” Monique groaned. “I HATE exams…”

“Well, only a few more days to go,” Kacey said with a tired chuckle. “Gonna be weird not going to college next year, heh.”

“Meh, I can’t wait to get to uni,” Jodie shrugged. “I love change, things get boring if things always stay the same, you know?”

Chapter 20

Gathering herself together Cindy appraised the woman in front of her. If she didn't know it was Jack she would have taken her for one of the applicants to fill Joy's position when she went on maternity leave. Sandy obviously dressed Jack like this for exactly that reason.

"Jack? It is you Jack, isn't it? I suppose you have some explanation for why you are dressed like this."

Stick Her Shock - Part 10

Chapter 18

Once inside their bedroom Sandy slowly stripped Jackie of all her clothes and gently pushed her back on to the bed. Jackie needed to know not only that she loved her but that she could still enjoy sex as a woman. She just hoped that those microconductors she read about on the computer worked as well for Jackie's vagina as it did for her breasts.

Stroking Jackie's breasts Sandy asked if she played so much with them and nearly got off why didn't she play with her vagina? She was legitimately puzzled.

Arriving at the pension a surprise awaited me: Kathrin. The moment she saw me get out of the taxi she came and embraced me in a tight hug. Then she kissed me gently on both cheeks, twice each. Four kisses for family. I started to cry. She held me at arms length and smiled.
“How can such a deadly woman be such a cry baby?”
She got a tissue from her bag and started cleaning the tears off my face. Another time I was glad not to have put any make-up on.
“Oh Monika,” she sighed “you are so sweet.”
“Kathrin!” I whispered “you want to say good bye in person?”
“Of course, you silly girl. After all I have to thank you and Marina and that amazing daughter of yours for? There was no way I’d let you go without a kiss. I am going to take you to the station in Frankfurt, Angel.”
She giggled.
“And then I am coming back here to try and seduce that sidekick of yours.”

Chapter 16

Once inside Jackie's head was on a swivel as she looked around the dining room. The hostess told them there would be a short wait. It seems there was a convention in town and a lot of the attendees had decided to dine there. She suggested they wait in the bar until they were called.

Hit'n those notes... Chapter 14

Sleep alluded me and getting my brain to shut off was impossible. I think the only reason I fell asleep was due to exhaustion. I was feeling that way now - exhausted. I was dreading meeting everyone for breakfast. So much so I almost cancelled, but didn’t because the backlash would have been worse than what I had been facing since sitting down - which was pretty intense.

Chapter 14

As soon as she had dropped Jackie off Sandy had rushed to meet Cindy at the same coffee shop she had waited at for Jackie that morning. She had no sooner sat down with a large latte when Cindy rushed in looking worried.

All Cindy had been thinking since Sandy's phone call was that Jack was seriously ill and was trying to keep it a secret. She was so concerned that she simply blurted out what was on her mind.

"Is Jack alright? He isn't dying is he? Is it cancer? "

Chapter 12

Sandy had parked down the street out of sight and sat in a small coffee bar while she made some phone calls.

First on her list was Lisa, her favorite stylist. She was lucky, she had time this afternoon to do what Sandy wanted.

Next was Cindy. She asked if Cindy could meet her this afternoon to talk about Jack. Cindy was curious but Sandy didn't give any more information other than it was very important and Jack wasn't to know about their meeting or what they discussed.
