While You Were Out – KAMA Called PART 6

The metro arrives with all the rumble and gust expected.  Soaking and dripping bodies clamber on.  The chatter is all the same.  The rain, it’s sheer force and how unexpected the torrent is.  I squeeze my man’s hand.  It’s a little cold but he squeezes mine in return before he scrutinises the map to assessContinue reading “While You Were Out – KAMA Called PART 6”


Dear  readers and fellow bloggers,  Welcome to the blogging equivalent of the adverts.  For those of you following the series ‘While You Were Out’ – Kama called the break in continuity is a bit annoying (Lisa??) But, these next few days are important to me and when I actually pen the conclusion to the KamaContinue reading “THE ANNOYING INTERVAL”

PART 5 While You Were Out – KAMA Called

Not being blessed with the best eye sight in the world means I have to lean a little closer.  Besides, looky looky is whispering and I can’t hear him over the chat in the bar – or the rain pounding outside.    My curiosity is piqued by this dark and beautiful stranger.  I wonder ifContinue reading “PART 5 While You Were Out – KAMA Called”

Part 4 While You Were Out – KAMA Called

Mr silent and staring, shouts at me across the bar – he wants me to take the unannounced and impromptu drink.  I want him to leave me alone.  I need a fairy godmother of sorts to ‘poof’ him off his stool and vanquish him to another dimension.  Preferably one that my molecules don’t occupy.   If I hadContinue reading “Part 4 While You Were Out – KAMA Called”

While You Were Out – KAMA Called PART 3

  I want to stand outside the train station.  After all it’s got a huge clock that even my eyes can see and I’m counting down the minuets until I get to see my man.  It’s been a six long weeks since I passed through airport security and sat in departures – alone.  Madre Mia..WhatContinue reading “While You Were Out – KAMA Called PART 3”

While You Were Out – KAMA Called PART 2

I put my phone back down on the table.  Pick it back up, put it down, pace five strides towards the window, about turn and pace the returning steps in four.  What’s going on?  My mind is working overtime. I begin to see a horror scene play out in my head.    The French voices,Continue reading “While You Were Out – KAMA Called PART 2”

While You Were Out – KAMA Called PART 1

After five weeks in the city on my lonesome, I am really looking forward to some company and, finally getting out of this apartment.  I survey the kitchen and living room…gleaming.  No thanks to three hours of solid cleaning.   Part 3 The Toothbrush Tantrums  My phone does a little pinging noise; I pick it upContinue reading “While You Were Out – KAMA Called PART 1”

PART 3 The Toothbrush Tantrums

Have you ever told a lie for someone else and then ended up regretting it?  Or perhaps kama has given you a gentle reminder that it is indeed a bad thing to do.  I arrive home from work.  Bag on my shoulders, sweat dripping.  Even though it’s getting on for late evening the city isContinue reading “PART 3 The Toothbrush Tantrums”


I’ve made tea for the landlady loads of time but not coffee and never with a Nancy Drew head on.  Internally I am in character and not myself  so I can’t remember if she takes sugar.  I elicit that she does – 2 big spoons.   I begin to stir the coffee methodically before offeringContinue reading “PART 2: THE TOOTHBRUSH TANTRUMS”


Things happen for a reason – this is the old adage of positive thinking.  Yet when the shit is hitting the fan and it’s all going a bit Pete Tong – WRONG it’s difficult to see it that way.  I arrive back to the centre of the city with the keys to my newly purchasedContinue reading “THE TOOTHBRUSH TANTRUMS”
