Shopping for Ebony“Come along ladies, see how we can make you look a new woman!”Shopping for Ebony by *KP-Presents
The shoppers were looking with mild interest at the cosmetic stand in the department store, one of many on the shop floor. The two assistants were wearing grey dresses with capped sleeves and a thin black belt around their waists, and knee length black leather boots, while red scarves were tied around their necks.
“So what sort of style are we talking about here?”
The two women looked at the tall, good looking dark skinned woman standing in front of the counter. She must have been at least six foot tall, and had the body of a model, the black sheath dress fitting her like a glove. The sides were sparkled, and the material ruffed, while she was also wearing a pair of over the knee black suede boots with a three inch heel and a black leather jacket.
“Take a seat madame,” the first woman said, “and tell us your name.”
“Janice,” she said as she sat do
Coming Home for Christmas20th DecemberComing Home for Christmas by *KP-Presents
“It really is very kind of you to have me staying for Christmas this year, Karen – with your father passing on this year, I didn’t want to be alone.”
Karen smiled as she pulled up outside her flat, and turned off the engine of her Skoda Octavia. “It’s my pleasure Mum – the last thing either of us needs is a Christmas where we feel sad. Come on – I’ll show you the new flat.”
Karen smiled as her mother got out of the car. For a woman in her sixties, she still looked remarkably good, her greying hair cut into a short bob as she walked over the cobbles and onto the pavement. Gail was wearing a black leather jacket, v-necked jumper and a grey blouse with a frilled front, dark trousers and short black boots.
As for Karen, she was wearing a black military style jacket over a dark round necked top, grey pants and knee length brown boots, the legs of her pants covered by the tan leather.
The Birthday and the Party - part 5“I still can’t believe it,” Sam said as we walked into her hallway, “we won a trip to LA?”The Birthday and the Party - part 5 by *KP-Presents
“Yup – a couple of country hicks going to see the sights of tinsel town,” I said as I put the envelope down, and then took her in my arms. “Congratulations,” I said as I kissed her, smiling as she put her arms around me.
“Same to you,” she said quietly as she looked at me, before Linda came in and said “Come on you two – plenty of time for that later, right now there’s a bottle champagne in the fridge.”
“What the... Did you think we were going to win?”
“I thought you were in with a damned good chance,” Jennifer said as she came in with Mum and Kristen, “but it’s there for your mother, actually.” I smiled at my own stupidity, and then followed them into the living room with Sam, as Jennifer went to a cupboard and took out some champagne
Heidi and the Healing Touch - part 7“So,” Lucinda finally said as she stood up, “What you need to take from this is that you all worked together to resolve this situation – and it’s that strength you need to draw from now, especially you Katherine.”Heidi and the Healing Touch - part 7 by *KP-Presents
“Me,” Katherine said as she looked at her, “Why me?”
“Isn’t it obvious,” Heather said as she took her sister’s hands, “you killed him to save Sarah and us. I know you don’t feel it – God knows, you may never feel it – but you were a true heroine that night, and we need to make sure you never, ever forget that.”
“I’m no hero...”
“Enough,” Jack said as he stood up, “You are, whether you wanted to be or not. I know all too well that burden, so trust me – you need friends around you to support you in this.”
Standing up, he said “Right – I’m going to go and see what...”
The door to the
Heidi's Group Therapy - Part 4"In a little while," Amy said as she sat down. "For now, we need to explain the ground rules. All three are in the same room, but they don't know that for certain. We keep them blindfolded at all times, and gagged unless they are eating."Heidi's Group Therapy - Part 4 by *KP-Presents
"They have been told by me," Veronica continued, "to grunt three times if they need to relieve themselves." As she said this, she pointed to three baby listeners on the table, each labelled with one of the names of the three captives. "They operate on different frequencies, and we can tell who is calling."
"Ingenious," Joanne said quietly, "and how do they get fed?"
"We'll take them food one at a time, ungag and remove the headphones from each one, give them food and drink, then re-tie them in the next position. We'll take turns with each of them, and we say nothing. Guide their hands, and help them as necessary."
"Including?" As she said this, Natalie grimaced slightly.
"No - Amy or I will take care of that if needed. So at most two of us upstairs, t
Heidi's Group Therapy - Part 3Heidi stirred in her sleep, mumbling "Oh god, please don't put those in my mouth" when she felt a hand on her shoulder. As first she thought it was part of the dream, but the shaking was insistent, so she slowly opened her eyes.Heidi's Group Therapy - Part 3 by *KP-Presents
She saw her mother standing over her- except there was something fuzzy about the way she looked, It took a few moments for her to realise it wasn't her eyes that were the problem, but the dark stocking that Amy had pulled over her head. She was wearing a black roll neck sweater and stirrup pants, with her bare feet on the floor.
"Get up, little one," she said quietly, "and get dressed - you're coming with me?"
"Where," Heidi said as she rubbed her eyes, "Where am I going?"
"None of your business," Amy replied as she showed Heidi a small toy pistol. "Just do what I say and get dressed." She stood back and watched her daughter slowly sit up in the bed and bring her legs over the side.
"What do you want me to put on?"
Amy pointed to the chair by the bed, where a s
Playing Cat And MouseSometimes it was less a case of tricking someone, and more a case of making it a game for the person I was unfortunate enough to meet. This happened to me one day in the wilds of Devon in about 1985, when I was visiting an antique fair at a local village and was driving back through the countryside when I felt the urge to visit a house, unexpectedly.Playing Cat And Mouse by *KP-Presents
There was a large manor house set back from the road, and as I parked in the street and looked round the walls I had to admit it called to me. I hadn't quite retired yet, so I walked round the wall, found a wooden gate at the other side and used a pocket knife to let myself in.
There was a vast area of green, and I could see a horse walking round in a paddock some way off, but it proved to be easy enough to make my way to the rear of the large house and force open a ground floor window. Lifting the sash frame up, I slipped in and found myself in a study.
Well, these can be almost as fruitful as bedrooms, so
Heidi's Group Therapy - Part 2"I'm glad you could both come round - we really haven't had a chance to just be a group of five together since - well, since we were kidnapped."Heidi's Group Therapy - Part 2 by *KP-Presents
Amy looked at Cindy and Dorothy as they sat on the couch opposite her, their hands clasped in front of them. Dorothy looked older than usual, the grey hairs at her temples slightly more visible than they previously had been, and her eyes looked tired and red. She clasped the coffee cup in her hands as she looked at Cindy.
Veronica was standing by the fire, looking at both of them with concern. "How have you been coping - I know you were dragged into this with no warning."
"You didn't have any either, did you," Dorothy said as she looked up at her friend. "If you mean physically, well bruises heal. On the other hand, I - that is, we haven't been sleeping that well."
Cindy looked at Heidi and nodded. "Last night I dreamt that I was taped to this chair, my head locked into place and tape all round my mouth and forehead, as these two
