Beyond the enticing dark bits

"I would like to see what is beyond the enticing dark bits," said Cherie the CherryPie, and wherever possible the world should provide what Cherie would like, and so...


If she finds that enticing she should head for Luss Pier on Loch Loch Lomond at dusk.

Those people on the pier were doing an extensive photoshoot with an absolutely gorgeous lady model, or perhaps she was an actress, and so of course I just had to make my way onto the pier and past them to, eh... enjoy the view. She smiled at me, the gorgeous lady, and in the dazzling heat of that smile I nearly melted and slipped away into the Loch.

All very "enticing" indeed.

My own gorgeous lady did not venture onto the pier for she felt it would be rude to intrude. No such reluctance from me to exercise my "right to roam" and to enjoy looking at whatever I want to look at. Anyway, I am sure the lady on the pier was thinking, "Oh my goodness! It's Andrew MacLaren-Scott!" I do think she swooned and faltered, just a little, and let out a barely audible wistful sigh.

Another SF story....Hope it sells!

Andrew MacLaren-Scott said...

A tale of a beautiful young woman's doomed attempt to gain the love of an older and wiser man who has travelled the universe and seen so may things? Sounds closer to fact than fiction to me, but then I look at things differently from most other people, having travelled the universe and seen so many things. Back to writing...

Fascinating....A fairy tale come true. I can hardly wait!

And I imagine when there are no gorgeous ladies to distract the views are of the pier are rather nice too.

To be honest, the views from the pier to the hills across the water were the best, Cherie.
