A Summertime Initiation

Story Tagline

If Bluebeard were a disgraced attorney, how would he make sure his down-on-her-luck dancer friend had relationship potential?

Story Blurb

“A Summertime Initiation” is a retelling of the classic fairytale “Bluebeard” about disgraced criminal-defense attorney Richie Marlboro awakening on the fifth of July to discover a naive dancer named Crystal naked in his bed. While Richie thinks Crystal may have relationship potential, he decides he must test her true intentions after she asks him for money. Will Richie and Crystal be able to heal each other’s wounds of loss and betrayal to find a second chance at love? This is a work of dark literary fiction that is not intended to represent the best practices of the BDSM Community.


When criminal-defense attorney Richie Marlboro awoke in his bed on the morning of the fifth of July, the dirty fingerprints on his white dress shirt reminded him of the lady cop swinging him around like a shotput last night, but who was this naked girl in his bed? She was young, with a beautiful face that sported too much cheap makeup. He only had his shirt on but was relieved to see a soiled condom nearby. Maybe he would remember more later. 

Richie’s head ached with a hangover as he gazed around the master bedroom of his peculiar nineteenth-century rowhouse and its myriad pieces of railroad memorabilia. He could afford better but did not want to spend too much on housing. Plus, he had grown up in this bad neighborhood, so most of his clients were old friends. He examined the girl. She wasn’t a cop, but she was not a streetwalker either. So far, so good.

I try to get comments published as quickly as possible. I have ADHD and anxiety and sometimes I need to work myself up to be able to respond to comments. I don't always reply to comments on my blog, but I do try to visit as many people as possible when I participate in blog hops. I share your work on the monthly Roost Recommendations posts at ornerybookemporium.blogspot.com so others can discover your work. I do read and appreciate your comments.
Sorry, the Captcha is back and this time it's staying. I was inundated with spam comments when I turned it off. I wish butt rash on all the spammers out there.
