Don't Breathe a Word by Jennifer McMahon
June 23, Fifteen Years AgoHotter than hot, no air-conditioning, sweat pouring down in rivers, the Magic Fingers motel bed vibrating beneath her, Mr. Ice Cream doing his thing above. He's not bad-looking, a little paunch-bellied, but he's got a nice face. Blue eyes that remind her of a crystal stream.

She wishes he'd shave his moustache, but no chance, the wife loves it.
