Moonlight and Merlot

July 26, 2011

The continuing saga of the lives, loves and heartbreaks of the residents of Dion Valley, CA.

As with all the best things in life, this is for adults only.


Sometimes epiphanies just happened out of nowhere.

Zach sat on the hard ground and watched as Phoebe stormed off in the direction of his car. Something about the arrogant sway of her hips, the haughty flip of her hand, struck him hard and opened his eyes and he was treated to one, shining, horrifying moment of total clarity.

He hated her.

Why did he put up with her shit?  With her whinnying and selfishness and total disregard for everyone and everything? With her manipulations and her schemes and her flaky, flighty self-indulgence?

Was the sex that good?

And though it pained him, he did have to admit that the sex was that good. Phenomenal even. Not only was Phoebe beautiful, with a body that would have made Aphrodite herself jealous, but she was also athletic and daring and willing to anything, really and absolutely anything in bed.

What man could say no to that?

It was quite frankly addicting and no other girl he had ever met had ever possessed the drive, the desire, the pure, unquenchable need Phoebe had to fuck and fuck and fuck. And he was more than happy to accommodate her whenever she called.

But maybe, finally, the price for all that incredible sex had become too high. Maybe he needed not for his mind to be blown anymore, but rather for the simple comforts of an honest and caring relationship.

He looked over at Lela and Nick, watched as he helped her to her feet, the way she stroked his cheek, their hands moving over one another, checking each other for any injuries. Simple, human kindness and, well, love, Zach supposed.

Oh, but that sex…

Was he that shallow?

Zaaaach,” Phoebe called from somewhere off in the distance.

It was that familiar tone in her voice that finally made get to his feet and follow after her. It was the voice that promised all kinds of bad, mad fun. Wild romps and rough rides.

He glanced back at Nick and Lela once and then went to find his girl. He supposed shallow was all right. There were worse things.

[Until next Tuesday…]

    Sorry I’m late! I had some M&M installments to catch up on.

    This is coming along great. Poor Zach. I feel sorry for him. He’s like the poor underdog. Although, he doesn’t seem to mind being led around on a leash by Phoebe.

    Can’t wait for the next episode. Keep up the excellent work!
