In today’s snippet, Cassie and Tom are visiting friends out west. Cassie chose to stay back at the house when the girls went shopping and Tom went golfing with the fellows, feeling a little lonely she lays down for nap…
I had just drifted off to sleep when I felt a hand on my arm. My heart gave a lurch, I knew I was alone in that great big house. I barely had time to see that it was Tom before he tied a scarf around my eyes and said quietly, “Do what I tell you and you won’t be hurt.”
Oh my! We hadn’t played like this in so long. My heart raced because I’d truly been frightened. That fright, combined with being deprived of sight so suddenly and the realization that Tom had given up his golf game just to spend the afternoon with me, definitely had me reeling.
Meet Cassie, a former wild child, who meets her match, and creates the match of a lifetime. To nearly all who know her now, Cassie is a vivacious, sweet southern lady, who is the epitome of grace and proper behavior. Look a tiny bit closer and you’ll see that Cassie has another side – the one whose language could make a sailor blush as she drinks him under the table.
Thanks to her loving husband Tom, who even after thirty years of marriage, never hesitates to put Cassie over his knee when she strays too far from his view of ladylike behavior, few people other than close old friends know this side of Cassie exists.
Cassie and Tom show that love and passion are not the sole property of the young. Love and passion grows and changes with age. While aging may bring on challenges – the love and passion between these two people only grows stronger.
Cassie’s Tale will be out on February if you’d like to continue to read about Cassie and Tom.
Cassie continues to live life to the fullest, from wheeling around in her new sports car to mastering the art of riding a motor scooter with no hands, she manages to keep Tom on his toes. The fly in the ointment is that Tom’s firm wants him back for a project and Cassie wants him all to herself. When Tom takes the job, Cassie is left lonely and bored – never a good combination for her.
Left to her own devices Cassie makes some poor decisions, frightening Sue and causing Tom to lower the boom. Tom's new schedule for Cassie, including her getting a job, leaves her little time to get herself in trouble – yet she still manages.
