Jessica and the teeth

The sound of the air being sucked in through his less-than-white front teeth sent shivers down Jessica’s spine. It wasn’t that she was afraid of the inevitable cost soon to be revealed to her. Nor was it the fear of the “complicated and confusing world of manly motors, complete with greasy nuts, oily patches and red-hot pistons”.

No, Jessica recognised the feeling almost at once. They were entirely pleasant, and always welcomed.

Jessica smiled at the five-figure sum. She always felt a tingle of anticipation tickle her skin, moments before putting an ill-educated man firmly in his place.

  1. That would make me tingle, too.

    Dear Peter, I’d like to meet Jessica someday. She sounds like a fine woman who knows what she needs and exactly how to get it. Well handled.

    All my best,
    Marie Gail

    Well, some fairly graphic imagery there Mr Binks! I can only dwell lightly on how she’ll put this ill-educated man in his place. Well done.

  4. Dear Peter,

    I like Jessica. I’d love to hear how that conversation went.

    There are a lot of good men out there. But there are almost as many who need to be put in their place. So I say: Good for her.

  6. Certainly a person I’d be anxious about.
    (Why is no-one kicking the tyres here – I thought that was obligatory?)

  7. Sarah Ann says:

    I bet she gets such a sense of satisfaction – great last line.

  8. Jessica’s a woman after my own heart… err, fictionally speaking, of course. 😉

  9. I think he’s in deep trouble.
