Love in The Boondocks by Adam Mann
Dave is working for a development project with farmer families in remote and distant areas, often mountainous. Very few people speak English, and he works with several translators. He comes across several primary school teachers who are working in villages in those areas, and one who does speak good English asks him for help with transport to one of the distant villages, and then inadvertently invites herself for accommodation overnight in Dave’s small village house.
Kim Anh comes from a family of teachers, and unfortunately is just recovering from a failed marriage, so meeting Dave is quite fortuitous and she instinctively cleans and tidies Dave’s kitchen and bedroom.
Kim’s departure to her new village is delayed as her transport is not available, until after the forthcoming luni-solar holidays, and she stays another day in Dave’s house. The weather grows colder and Dave kindly offers her warmer sleeping facilities!
Kim had found Dave an attractive man when she first met him, but Dave found all young ladies beautiful, until Kim began to blossom under Dave’s care.
Initial contact turns to passion and passion to deep love!
Everything works out well until Kim’s co-teacher turns up with a baby, a non-husband, and big problems!
In the early morning Dave turned over, and he noticed it was about five o’clock, and suddenly was awake and looking at her peaceful sleeping face. He wanted to kiss her, but refrained.
His arms could not help but touch her arms, and she woke to look at him, and reached to touch him herself.
Their fingers touched! It was like an electric shock for Dave.
Suddenly they were close together face to face, and Dave could not stop himself kissing her nose, as her perfume assailed him.
She smiled at him;
“It’s just as well we’re both fully dressed,” she ventured.
“I’m not, I’ve only got boxers,” he admitted.
Her hands reached across to feel his skin, and he shivered as her warm fingers touched him this time in anticipation, and at the same time his hands began to feel her shape through her clothes so that he could touch the outline of her body. She wriggled to loosen her shirt, which Dave began to unbutton down the front. She did not object, and Dave could see her smiling at him so that soon his hands were stroking her back and then her firm breasts as she had not been wearing a bra.
She wriggled closer to him, and ran her hands down his bare back. Her breasts touched his chest, and he could immediately feel her nipples hardening as they touched him.
