“Diary of a Changeling” Part 6

These have been extended outwards from one form to more of a quickie.  Hope that doesn’t raise any sand….they are not flashers because they have no beginning/middle/end in each episode.  They are a continuation.

‘Nuff said.

Diary of a Changeling

Diary, June 28, 1940 (#6)

I was at S.’s today, telling her about our night over in the countryside.

How MN filled the woodstove with splits stacked in the kitchen, how the stove puffed and groaned and how good the three eggs I found in the old hen house tasted. I heard a rooster crow so there must be hens around. I took a chance but the eggs were fresh.

S. laughed, she seemed at ease.  She said I am good for MN.  He needs a diversion in his life. He needs a woman to fry him eggs in the morning. He needs a woman to warm his bed at night.

MN has never told me about his past.  I thought it would come in time.  There is such little chance now, with him scarce and not even S. knowing where he is from day to day.

But I do miss him, and wonder what he is up to.  When I see him, I fall under his spell, and my body responds to his presence faster than my mind.  My skin seems softer, my movements more languid.  S. laughs when she questions me, saying all this is natural.

He is a man and I am a woman.  What could be more normal?

S. and I were having our usual talk when the maid informed her the German, Lieutenant Wolflauf was downstairs.

This German is very cordial, quiet, but commanding.  He kissed my hand, which I thought outrageous considering his army has just invaded Paris.

I sat and said little. S. was her usual self, elegant and unflappable, but I could tell a bit nervous.

I kept staring at his shiny black boots.  They seemed more than boots, and they made me nervous for some reason. They were like mirrors into the future.

    Hi Jane,

    I really love the Diary. I especially liked the comment about the boots too.

    The story leaves me wanting more, and to find out more about the characters. It is a tough subject to cover, but you are doing extremely well.

    Dear Shia…

    I really stumble all over the place with this series…I love it and hate it.

    Rather like men I know….LOL!

    But the flasher form isn’t enough..and I was using it wrongly there on ERWA…so I have extended it a bit….and perhaps some day, I can weave it into a novel…

    I love the idea of going short right now, because it’s like to me…..arousal to the point of release, but pulled back at the end. Not allowing a resolution.

    This is how I feel when I write these pieces…It just occurred to me!

    I am very thankful for anyone who has followed the Diaries because they mean a lot to me right now.

    They are restorative and have something in the writing of them that I very much need inside. They help me explore my own tattered issues.
