The Intruder

 

It was late in the night and the hallway was dimly lit.She had not realized that it would get so late at the party.

 

As she  took out the key to her apartment,she remembered the handsome man with the piercing blue eyes,who had flirted with her the whole evening.Now,now she admonished herself,how do you know how he looked-after all it was a masquerade party!She giggled .Guess ,I am a little tipsy,she told herself.

 

As she inserted the key and the door clicked open, she saw him emerge out of the dark shadows .Before she could react,he was behind her,holding a gloved hand over her mouth and nudging her forward with what seemed like a pistol..

 

He whispered,“Thinking of me,Honey?Now get inside and keep your mouth shut.”

Shivering,she complied.

 

Pushing the door shut with the heel of his boot,he said,”Now  what do we have here?’With a flick of his wrist,he opened a Swiss knife and turned her chin up.”Diamonds suit you, but rubies would look better.”

 

And with that he snatched her diamond choker and pocketed it.Her diamond ear clips,solitaire and bracelet followed.

 

She looked at him defiantly.

 

He smiled devilishly and said, “I don’t think you need any adornments or ..this..”With an expert hand he undid the knot of her evening gown and it slid to the floor.

 

“Delectable!”He reached behind and undid her French knot.As her auburn hair cascaded around her beautiful face,his piercing blue eyes seemed to laugh from behind the mask.She felt her colour rise.

 

“Take what you want and leave,”she whispered.

 

“Not so fast ,my Sweet!Let’s see what you have to offer me!”

 

With that he  pulled  her to him,kissing her passionately and before she knew he had swept her up in his arms  striding purposefully towards the bedroom.

 

At the foot of the bed ,Mickie,her Siamese cat,not happy with this midnight shenanigan,tripped him up.

 

As they both fell onto the bed,she started laughing.

 

Pulling the mask off her husband’s amused face,she said,“So much for our midnight adventure Robinhood!”
