His golden eyes glinted and glistened and his soft brown curls fell
across his brow. He was calling a
name, softly at first, then louder and louder.
Jeanie! Jeanie! Jeanie! His
hands were held out in front of him, palms up.

He was pushing her down on the bed and lying on top of her, but she felt
no impression of his weight. He
was close enough for her to feel his cold breath on her cheek.
Then he was kissing her. Soft
feathery kisses, like butterflies flickering across her skin.
His hands began to pull her nightgown off her shoulders and she could

She was hot now and could feel the droplets of perspiration running down
the side of her face. Her
head had fallen backwards and she shut her eyes, completely overwhelmed by him,
