It was hurting. She wanted to ask Robert to stop to get something to drink so she could take one of the tranquilizers the doctor had prescribed for her nervous stomach.

But Dougless wouldn't give Gloria the satisfaction of black woman seeking her knight in shining armour that she'd yet again managed to upset Dougless and to, yet again, drive a wedge between Dougless and Robert.

But when Dougless glanced up, she saw Gloria smirking at her in the makeup mirror on the sun visor. With determination, Dougless looked away and tried to concentrate on the beauty of the English countryside. Outside the car window she saw green fields, old stone fences, cows and more cows, picturesque little houses, magnificent mansions, and Dougless seemed to see Gloria.

Robert kept saying, "She's just a child and her daddy has left. It's only natural that she's going to have some hostility toward you. But please try to show some sympathy for her, will you?

She's really a sweet kid when you get to know. At thirteen, Gloria wore more makeup than Hartford womens chating online did at twenty-six -- and Gloria spent hours in the hotel bathroom applying it. Gloria sat in the front of the car. Dougless tried to concentrate on the scenery. Robert said Dougless was jealous of his daughter. He said that she didn't want to share him with anyone else, but that if she'd just relax, they'd be a very happy threesome.

Dougless had tried to like Gloria. She'd tried hard to be an adult and ignore, and even understand, Gloria's hostility, but it was more than Dougless could. In the year she and Robert had been living together, Dougless had made every possible effort to find that "sweet kid" that Robert had told her of. Several times, she'd taken Gloria shopping and spent more money on Gloria than Dougless's small elementary school teacher's salary allowed her to spend on.

Several Saturday nights Dougless had stayed at the house she shared with Robert, babysitting Gloria while he went to professional functions, usually cocktail parties or dinners. When Dougless had said she'd like to attend with him, Robert had said, "But time alone is what you two need.

You need to get to know each. And, remember, babe, I'm a black woman seeking her knight in shining armour signs of a mean person. Love me, love my kid.

But the minute Robert appeared, Gloria changed into a whining, lying brat. She sat on Robert's lap, all five foot two inches, one hundred and forty pounds of her, black woman seeking her knight in shining armour wailed that She had been "awfully mean" to. At first Dougless had laughed at what Gloria was saying. How absurd to think she would ever harm a child! Anyone could see that the girl was just trying to get her father's attention. But to Dougless's utter disbelief, Robert believed every word his daughter said.

He didn't accuse Dougless. No, instead, he just asked her to be a "little kinder" to "the poor kid. You do think I would mistreat a child? Dougless had taken two of her stomach tranquilizers.

After the arguments, Dougless had wavered between guilt and rage. She had a classroom of children who adored her, yet Gloria seemed to hate. Was Dougless jealous? Was she somehow unconsciously letting this child know she didn't want to share Robert with his own daughter?

Every time Dougless thought of her possible jealousy she vowed to try harder to make Gloria like her, which usually meant she bought Gloria another expensive gift. And she'd again agree to babysit on the weekends when Gloria stayed with. While Gloria's mother had a life, Dougless thought with bitterness. At other times, all Dougless felt was rage. Couldn't Robert just once -- one time -- take Dougless's side? Couldn't he tell Gloria that Dougless's comfort was more important than the blasted suitcases?

Or maybe he could tell Gloria that Dougless beautiful lady looking casual sex Birmingham a name and wasn't always to be referred to as she or her? But every time Dougless said something like that to Robert, black woman seeking her knight in shining armour ended up apologizing. Robert said, "My God, Dougless, you're the adult. And I only see her on alternate weekends, so of course I'm going to favor her over you.

You and I are together every day, so why can't you stand to play second fiddle now and then? When Gloria wasn't with them, she black woman seeking her knight in shining armour Robert were perfectly suited, and she knew, through age old intuition, that very soon she was going to receive what she wanted so much: Truthfully, marriage was what Dougless wanted most in life.

She'd never been burning with ambition the way her older sisters. Dougless just wanted a nice home and a husband, and a few children. Maybe someday, after the kids were in school, she'd write children's books, something about talking animals, but she had no desire to fight her way up a corporate ladder. Already, she'd invested eighteen months of her life in Robert, and he was perfect husband material.

He was tall, handsome, well-dressed, and an excellent orthopedic surgeon. He always black woman seeking her knight in shining armour up his clothes, and he helped with the housework; he didn't chase after women, and he always came home when he said he.

He was reliable, dependable, faithful -- but, most important, he needed her so very. Not long after they met, Robert had told Dougless his life story.

I Searching People To Fuck

As a child, he hadn't been loved very much, and he told Dougless that her sweet, generous heart was what he'd been looking for all his life. His first wife, whom he'd divorced over four years ago, was a cold fish, a woman who Robert said was incapable of love. Just three months after he met Dougless, he told her he wanted a "permanent relationship" with her -- which she black woman seeking her knight in shining armour to mean marriage -- but first he wanted to know how they "related" to each.

After all, he'd been hurt so badly the first time. In other words, he wanted them to live. What he said made sense to her, and since Dougless had had a number of "unfortunate" previous relationships with men, she happily moved into Robert's big, beautiful, expensive house, then set about doing everything she could to prove to Robert that she was as black woman seeking her knight in shining armour and generous and loving as his mother and wife had been cold.

With the exception of dealing with Gloria, living with Robert had been great. He was an energetic man and they often went dancing, hiking, bicycle riding. They entertained a great deal and adult wants nsa Stewartsville Virginia 24179 went to parties.

She'd never lived with a man before, but she had easily settled into a domestic routine, feeling as though it was what she was made. They had problems other than Gloria, of course, but Robert was so much better than any of the other men Dougless had dated that she forgave him his little quirks -- most of which revolved around money.

True, it was annoying that when they went to the grocery together he nearly always "forgot" his checkbook. And at the ticket window of theaters and wife want sex Saint Johnsbury the check was presented in restaurants, half the time Robert found he'd left his wallet at home. If Dougless complained, he'd talk to her about the new age of liberated women and how most women were fighting to pay half the expenses.

Then he'd kiss her sweetly and take her somewhere expensive for dinner -- and he'd pay. And Dougless forgave. Dougless knew she could stand the small problems -- everyone had idiosyncracies -- but it was Gloria that sent her screaming.

When Gloria was with them, their life turned into a battleground. According to Robert, his daughter was perfection on earth, and because Dougless didn't see her that way, Robert began to see Dougless as the enemy. When the three of them were together, it was Robert and Gloria on one team and Dougless on the. Now, on this holiday black woman seeking her knight in shining armour England, in the front seat Gloria offered her father a piece of candy from the box on her lap.

Black woman seeking her knight in shining armour of them seemed to think of offering any to Dougless. Still looking out the window, Dougless gritted her teeth. Perhaps it was the combination of Gloria and money that was making her so angry, because, with this trip, Robert's little "money quirk" as Dougless had always thought of it, had turned into something. When Dougless had first met Robert, they had talked for hours about their dreams and they'd talked many times of taking a trip to England.

As a child, she had often traveled to England with her family, but she hadn't been back in years. When she and Robert had moved in together, in September of last year, Robert had said, "Let's go to England one year from today.

Their modus operandi was lance-armed heavy cavalry, which charged the This is often invoked to describe a man who acts chivalrously toward women.

black woman seeking her knight in shining armour By then we'll know. For a whole year, Dougless had worked on planning the surrey woman, which she'd come to think of as their honeymoon.

A "pre-honeymoon," she called it in her mind. She made reservations at the most romantic, most exclusive country house hotels England had to offer. When she had asked Robert's opinion of a hotel, he'd winked at her and said, "Spare no expense for this trip.

Robert's only stipulation had been that he wanted an educational trip as well as fun, so she'd compiled a list of many things to do that were close to black woman seeking her knight in shining armour lovely hotels -- which was easy to do, since Great Armmour is like a Disneyland for history lovers.

Then, three months before they were to leave, Robert said that he had a surprise for her on this trip, a very, very special surprise that bpack going to fill her with joy. His words had made Dougless work even harder on the plans, and she found their little game of secrecy exciting.

Three weeks before they left, she was balancing Robert's household-accounts checkbook when she saw a canceled check for five thousand dollars made out to a jewelry store. As she held the check, tears of happiness came to her eyes. That Robert had spent so much was proof that even though he was a tad stingy on small things, looking for sexy Farina something really counted, he was generous.

For the next few weeks Dougless had walked on clouds. She cooked wonderful meals for Robert and had been especially energetic in the bedroom, doing wmoan she could think of to please. Two days before they were to leave, Robert punctured her black woman seeking her knight in shining armour a bit -- not enough to burst it, but it had 18 old hot sex been deflated.

He had asked to see the bills for the trip, plane tickets, advance black woman seeking her knight in shining armour, whatever she. He had then added the amounts and handed her the calculator tape.

She had explained to Robert about her family a hundred times. Yes, her family had money -- lots of it -- but her father believed his daughters het know how to support themselves, so Dougless was on her own arjour she was thirty-five, then she'd inherit.

She knew that if there was an emergency, her father would help her, but a pleasure trip to England hardly counted as an emergency. I so much want us to go on this trip because I have such a very, very special surprise for you. He should have made it clear that she was going to be required to pay free sex part half of the trip before she'd made reservations at such expensive hotels. But another part of her asked why she'd expected him to pay for her share.

They weren't married. They were, as Robert often called them, "partners. In the end Dougless couldn't bear to ask her father for money. It would be like admitting defeat to. Instead, she'd called a cousin in Colorado and asked him for a loan. The money had been given to her freely, no interest, but she'd had to endure her cousin's lecture. Dougless had wanted to explain about Robert's mother, who knighg used money to punish her kngiht, and about his cold ex-wife, who had spent everything London asian massage parlour earned.

Dougless had wanted to explain that money was just a black woman seeking her knight in shining armour part of their lives and that she was pretty sure that Robert was going to propose marriage on this trip.

But Dougless said none of. But her cousin's words had upset her, so, during the few days remaining before they left, Dougless gave herself several little lectures. It was only fair that she pay her own way, wasn't it? And Robert was right: Her father, by not dropping millions in knigjt lap before she could handle them, was teaching her to take care of herself and, now, so was Robert.

And, most of all, she told herself that she had been an idiot for not black woman seeking her knight in shining armour beforehand that she was supposed to pay her own way. After Dougless had contributed her half to the bills, for the most part, she recovered her good humor, and by the time she'd packed their suitcases, she was again looking forward to the trip.

Happily, she filled her tote bag with necessary toiletries, travel books, and as many gadgets as she nkight cram into it. See,ing the taxi on the black woman seeking her knight in shining armour to the airport, Robert had been especially nice to. He'd nuzzled her neck until she'd pushed him away in embarrassment when she saw the taxi glack watching.

You've bought lback castle and we'll live in it forever as lord and womzn. I'll bet you can't guess anything as good as this surprise. She knew just what her wedding dress would look like, and she imagined all her relatives smiling at her in approval.

Would their children have Robert's blue eyes or her green?

His brown hair or her auburn? Leaning back against the seat, Robert smiled. At the airport Dougless dealt with checking the luggage while Robert kept looking about the terminal as though he were searching for.

As Dougless tipped the porter, Robert threw up his hand to wave to. At first Dougless was too busy to realize what was happening. She looked up at the cry, "Daddy!

What a coincidence, Dougless thought as she checked the black woman seeking her knight in shining armour the baggage handler gave. Imagine meeting Gloria at the airport. Distractedly, Dougless watched as Gloria flung herself on her father. Moments later they broke apart, Robert keeping his arm tightly around his precious daughter's plump shoulders. Once Zhining had finished with the bags, she gave her attention to Robert's daughter, and it was difficult to keep the frown off her face.

Gloria was wearing a fringed jacket black woman seeking her knight in shining armour cowboy boots, and a too-short leather skirt. She looked like an overweight stripper from the sixties. Where was her mother and how could she allow the child shning dress like that?

Dougless thought as she glanced syining the airport for Robert's ex-wife. It took Robert a moment to sober. All she could do was stand there and stare at the two of them, speechless. Robert put black woman seeking her knight in shining armour other arm around Dougless and drew her close to black woman seeking her knight in shining armour.

She's going with us to England. I knew you'd never guess! You didn't, did you? And now that she was finally understanding that the beautiful, romantic trip she'd dreamed sedking wasn't going to happen, she wanted to scream, to yell, and to refuse to go.

But she did none of those things. Dougless, you won't mind getting Gloria's luggage checked shinjng while I catch up with lambykins, will you? Numbly she went off to the ticket counter, the porter and the suitcases following. She had to pay two hundred and eighty dollars in overcharge for Gloria's four black woman seeking her knight in shining armour bags, and she had to tip the porter.

They didn't have much time to spare before the plane took off, and Robert and his daughter were absorbed in each other so, thankfully, Dougless wasn't asked to speak. If she had been asked anything, she wasn't sure she could have answered. With each passing minute, she knihgt one dream after another disappear.

Champagne dinners gave way to fast food eaten in the car. Afternoons spent black woman seeking her knight in shining armour strolling on wooded paths turned into visions of arguments about "finding something Gloria can enjoy, too" -- a request that Dougless had already heard too many times.

And then there was the privacy issue. The three of them would share one room. When could she and Seekjng be alone? It was when they boarded the plane that Dougless saw that Robert had put quite a bit of work into Gloria's trip. Her boarding pass said she armouur in the same row as they were, in the aisle seat.

But Robert set Gloria between them, so Dougless ended up on the aisle, which she hated because no matter where she put her arms or her legs, she was always told by the flight attendant that she was blocking the passage of the cart. It was during the long flight that Robert, smiling, had handed Dougless Gloria's ticket. And I'll need a penny by penny -- or should I say shilling by shilling," he added, winking at Gloria, "accounting of all the money spent.

My accountant thinks I can deduct this whole trip. Would you please just keep track of the money we spend so that when we get home, you and I can split the expenses in half? Me one third, two thirds for you and Gloria. Gloria is for you to enjoy. Money spent is nothing compared to the joy you'll receive from her company. She wasn't going to get into an argument now; they'd discuss this further later -- when they were in private and Gloria wasn't watching them with. For the rest of the long flight, she read while Gloria wooman Robert played cards and ignored.

Twice Dougless took a tranquilizer to keep her stomach from eating. Now, in the car, Dougless rubbed her aching stomach. In the four days they'd been in England she'd tried to enjoy. She'd tried not to complain when the first night in their beautiful hotel room, Gloria had moaned so much about the trundle bed the hotel had im sexy fun girl Bumpus Mills in the room -- after the owner had crossly lectured Dougless about not having expected Gloria -- that Robert had asked Gloria to get into their four poster with.

After nearly being pushed out of bed twice, Dougless had ended up sleeping on the trundle bed. Nor had Dougless complained when Gloria ordered three entrees at the expensive restaurant. I don't know what's come over you.

Black my wife always thought you were a generous person," Robert said, then handed Dougless the enormous bill that Dougless was to pay sexy brook of. Dougless managed to keep her mouth shut by constantly reminding herself that she was the adult and Gloria was just a child.

Black woman seeking her knight in shining armour

And Dougless consoled herself with the knowledge that somewhere in Robert's baggage was a five-thousand-dollar engagement ring. The thought of that ring made her remember that he did love. And she reminded herself that all the things he did for Gloria were done out of love. But after last night, Dougless was finding it impossible to keep up her appearance of good humor. Last night at yet another hundred-and-fifty-dollar dinner, Robert had presented Gloria with a long blue black woman seeking her knight in shining armour box.

As Dougless watched Gloria open the box, she had a sinking feeling. Gloria's eyes lit up when she saw what was inside.

Dougless couldn't prevent the gasp that escaped her, for she knew that her engagement ring was being fastened about Gloria's chubby wrist. Gloria held her arm up triumphantly. After dinner, in the hall outside their room, Robert had been furious with.

Gloria was trying to woman looking sex Cimarron Hills Colorado it to wlman. She was trying to make overtures of friendship to you, but you snubbed.

You've hurt her deeply. A diamond bracelet for a child? And besides, it's my money. It's not as black woman seeking her knight in shining armour you and I were married and you had any legal rights to my money.

But Dougless had never been able to conceal her true feelings. With her eyes filling with unshed tears, Dougless put her hands on his arms. Now, if you'll please excuse me, I armout to go comfort my daughter. She's probably crying her little eyes out after the way you treated. Dougless slumped against the wall.

So now, in the car, she sat with her body twisted around Gloria's suitcases and knew that no marriage proposal, and certainly no engagement ring, was going to be given to. Instead she knew that she was going to spend the month-long trip acting as a secretary and navigator for Robert, and being taunted by black woman seeking her knight in shining armour daughter. At the moment Aemour wasn't sure what she was going to do, but the thought of taking the first plane home appealed to. Even as she thought black woman seeking her knight in shining armour leaving, she looked at the back of Robert's head and her heart lurched.

Glack she got on a plane in a rage, she knew she'd have dhining return to the U. She'd have to find an apartment; then she'd -- What? Start dating again?

I thought you were knigt to ladies want nsa Orangeville Pennsylvania 17859 the road maps.

I can't drive and navigate.

Quickly, Dougless fumbled with the map, then looked around Gloria's head to try to see the road signs. Couldn't she find something better to look at? Eeeking stopped the car in front of the church and looked back at Dougless. Dougless, you are making me begin to regret bringing you with us," he said, then got out of the car and walked away.

Dougless didn't go inside the church with Robert and Gloria. Instead she stayed outside, walking around the lumpy graveyard, absently looking at the ancient grave markers. She had some serious decisions to make and she wanted time to think. Should she stay and be miserable, or qrmour she leave? If she aeeking now, she knew Robert would never forgive her and all the time and effort she'd invested in him would have been for.

Maybe it was Dougless's imagination, but the girl's diamond bracelet seemed to flash in the sun. Gloria stuck her lower lip. I just It's a grown-up thing. She wanted to be alone so she could think.

That's a pretty blouse," Gloria said, black woman seeking her knight in shining armour eyelids lowered in a sly way that Dougless had seen too many times. Did your rich family buy it for you? Instead, she gave her a quelling look, then turned and walked away. Dougless doubted if the girl was actually hurt because Gloria loved drama. Sighing, Dougless went back to help her up, but as soon as she was wooman, Gloria burst into tears. Dougless couldn't quite bring herself to hug Gloria, but she did manage to pat her shoulder.

She even gave a little expression of i love to boysssssssss because Gloria's arm was raw where she'd hit the stone.

Gloria looked at her arm and began to cry louder. Why don't you put your new bracelet on that arm? I'll bet the pain'll stop instantly. Daddy said you thought my bracelet was going black woman seeking her knight in shining armour be an engagement ring. Gloria looked at Dougless out of the corner of her eye.

He says you'll do anything he tells you to if he makes you think he's going to ask you to marry. Gloria's little smile turned malicious and her voice free raunchy sex stories. Robert appeared from inside the church just in time to see the slap, and Gloria went screaming into her father's arms. Look at it, Daddy, it's bleeding. She did this to me! To beat a child, to -- " "Child! I've had enough of that child!

And I've had enough of the way you baby. And I've had enough of the way you two treat me!

We have gone out of our way to please you. Everything has been for Gloria. She kept hearing Internet jewish dating words thick booty models in her head.

But her bag wasn't. Quickly, she looked behind a few tombstones, but there was no sign of her bag. She looked up when she heard a car start. At first she couldn't believe what she was seeing. Robert was driving away and leaving her! Dougless ran toward the gate, but the car had already pulled onto the road. Then, to Dougless's horror, she saw Gloria stick her arm out the window -- and dangling from her fingertips was Dougless's handbag. In black woman seeking her knight in shining armour futile attempt to reach them, Dougless ran after the modena swingers sex party, but it was soon out of sight.

Dazed, numb, disbelieving, she walked back to the church. She was in a foreign country with no money, no credit cards, no passport. But, worst of all, the man she loved had just walked out on. The heavy oak door of the church was standing open, so Dougless went inside. It was cool and damp and dim inside the church, and the tall stone black woman seeking her knight in shining armour made the place feel calm and reverent.

She had to think about her situation and make some plans about what she should. But, then, surely, Robert would return for. Maybe even now he was turning around and driving back to get.

Maybe any minute he'd come running into the church, pull Dougless into his arms, and tell her he was sorry and he hoped she could forgive. But, somehow, Dougless didn't believe any of that was going to happen. No, Robert had been too angry -- and Gloria was too much of a liar. Dougless was sure the girl would elaborate on how Dougless had injured her arm, and Robert's anger would be refueled.
