Kathy sat on the sofa and glared at Peter, who sat beside her. He snored softly while a TV program droned in the background.
“Let’s take off the rest of the day for quality alone time,” he said. “It will be fun without Peta in the house for a few hours,” he said.
She shook her head in disgust and poked him. “Peter.”
“Hmmm?” More snoring.
Kathy poked him harder. “Peter!”
He jolted awake. “What the fuck just happened?”
“Great quality time we’re spending together.”
He yawned. “You don’t have to be sarcastic. I was resting my eyes for a few.”
“Sounded more like you were sawing down an entire forest’s worth of logs.”
“Okay, I dozed a bit. Rough morning with the kids.”
“Today’s the big day. Avadon’s coming home from the hospital.”
“So I heard. Tried calling the boy earlier, but his supervisor said he took the rest of the day off. May have met Ava to pick up their little grasshopper.”
“My God, Donovan taking off work? Never thought I’d see the day.”
“Kathy, he would walk on hot coals if it meant being with Avadon.”
She smiled. “Kind of like someone else I know who spoils his own daughter silly.”
“Not I,” Peter replied with mock innocence.
“Mmm, hmm. Like father, like son.”
“When did you say Mamie was due to bring Peta home?”
“Around six. Why?”
“I believe I mentioned something earlier about us blowing off work early for quality time together. You know, something we don’t have very often.”
“Oh, yes, not long before you were snoring like a bear in front of the TV.”
He ran a hand up her thigh with a mischievous gleam in his eye. “There’s still a few hours left.”
Kathy laughed. “Oh, so this was what you meant by ‘quality time’.”
Peter gave her a wide grin but said nothing.
“You dirty old man.”
“Oh, but it was okay for you to attack me in the den after coming home from your massage appointment the other day?”
Before she could react, Peter’s lips found hers. His tongue slid into her mouth and they locked into an intense kiss. When Kathy began rubbing his crotch, he grasped her breasts and massaged them over her top.
“Wow,” she said after they broke the kiss, “what brought on all of this?”
“Peta’s not going to be home for a few more hours, both of us are obviously horny, and we could use some well-earned rest and relaxation.”
She resumed rubbing his crotch. “In that case, maybe we can fit a little fun.”
