It was one of those days where nothing much was happening poolside.

Until he showed up!

“Oh, my goodness,” said one to the other, “Look at him.”

Before them appeared the young man, fit and muscle-bound, who dropped his towel revealing a body to well and truly drool over. And they did.

Even as he plunged into the pool and began to swim lengths, their collective imaginations were working conjuring up the most lurid of images.

Said one: “I dated a fellow once, built like this young man but nowhere near the look of this one.”

“Yes, you’d just like to hold him and feel all those muscles, wouldn’t you?”

“Yes, there’s a certain deliciousness about him.”

“A disgustingly deliciousness if you ask me.”

“Oh, I’m feeling awfully lucky to here today.”

“I’m waiting for him to come out of the pool so I can get another gander at him. He’s really something.”

“That’s in your unbiased opinion?”

“Oh, most certainly. There’s nothing openly secret about what I think, you should know that.”

“Yes, I can see your beginning to get hot just thinking of him.”

“Hot? Honey, I’m silently screaming inside for this boy.”

“And its happening for me too. Oh, the poor boy it must be such a burden for him to be so disgustingly delicious.”

“And I’m just the one to help him realise it!”

    Well, at least now I know I wasn’t the only one that found the provocation in these phrases. Nicely done Michael. But couldn’t you have added a photo or two?
