    Summary

    It is said that the storyteller shapes the story, but I have found it equally true that the story is shaped by its intended audience.

    Summary

    “So. You’ve never done this before, right?”

    Rich barks out a laugh. “Eddie, really. Of course he’s never done it before.”

His hands, where her stupid nightgown is clinging to her, dripping and freezing and so definitively not a bathing suit.

    “What?” Peter asks her again. His hands linger on her waist. She can feel the heat of his thumb against her bottom rib, hotter than the throbbing warmth of the water around them. He cocks an eyebrow, that mix of openness and tease, and she breaks.
