Heat Wave

DA4C19B8-E19B-4EC7-8AB5-0D6DC21923F2“This heat wave is going to be the death of me,” Dave complained on his phone call with his friend, Charlotte, “The high temperatures have been off the chart and my place isn’t air conditioned. Even with a fan on and the windows open, it’s so damn hot in my bedroom that I can’t fall asleep at night. I’ve even started to sleep in the nude to try and stay cool, but that hasn’t helped. I lay awake all night in a pool of my own sweat, and I’m feeling really sleep deprived. I can’t take this much longer.”

Listening to Dave’s voice, Charlotte felt something stir deep inside her as she visualized Dave’s hot, naked, sweaty body. Up until that point she and Dave had a purely friendly, platonic relationship, but suddenly she was feeling very naughty.

“How about if I come over and bring a bag of ice cubes that I can rub all over your hot, sweaty body?” she asked in her most sultry voice.

“I don’t know if that will help me sleep,” Dave said, “but it will no doubt take my mind off obsessing about it. How quickly can you get here?”

    I’m not even sure I know what a heat wave is up North here…

      With climate change, you may learn about it sooner than you’d like to.

    Even though I’m kinda done with the endless rain here, what you describe doesn’t sound pleasant either. Seems like everyone has extremes of one sort or another… our planet is definitely a changing.

    Nice story Fandango! I think they just jumped past being platonic.
