Excerpt: I peeked down the hall, toward the sound. Four doors away, a fiftyish man in a white doctor’s coat leaned over a woman wearing a black cocktail dress and red stilettos. The female, a mid-thirties Hispanic woman with heavily lined, deep cocoa eyes, gave him a sultry pout.
“If not here, where? I’ve been waiting in that hotel room for hours.” She nuzzled his neck. Her right hand lay flat against his chest. Her left explored significantly further south.
The man’s voice turned low and throaty. “You’re killing me.” He reluctantly pushed her away, exposing designer glasses, a handsome face, and perfectly tousled, George Clooney-like hair. “I told you I’d call as soon as I could leave, and I will. But we can’t be seen like this. Not here. Especially not now.”
She ran a burgundy fingernail down the center of his sternum. “So what if someone sees us? I’m tired of sneaking around. It’s time for you to get a divorce. Past time.”
The man flashed a conciliatory smile. “Patience, Mariella. Patience. I told you. As soon as the lawsuit is settled, I’ll leave her.”
She grabbed his lapels and pulled him closer. “In case you haven’t noticed, patience isn’t my strong suit.”
This time, he didn’t resist her. Their show zoomed right past PG on the fast track to R.
And they were blocking my way back to Rhonda’s birthing suite.
What was I supposed to do now? I considered tiptoeing past the two lovers, hoping they wouldn’t notice me. I considered announcing myself loudly, in hopes that they’d scurry away. I even considered spraying them both with the nearest fire extinguisher, in an attempt to cool them down before the building ignited.
Their show was that hot.
