Clark Lane was a 23 year old junior clerk working in a Coroners Office in a major city. He was a good looking young man with the unfortunate appearance of a nerd. But he was not. The only reason he had not pursued his education past High School was that his parents could not afford to help him financially. It was a pity as he was a very clever young man with a lot of common sense. Since High School, he had done every self improvement school or course he possibly could with his limited resources, and at the moment was just starting an advanced Adult Education course in Microsoft Publisher, Word, Access and Excel. This was funded by the Justice Department through the Coroner's Office because he had been able to successfully convince his superiors that the skills gained would make him a more useful member of the staff.
He had thought for some time that if recognised early enough, some trends and coincidences identified in deaths can possibly help prevent some further deaths and perhaps assist in their investigations when death did occur.
A good database like Access would be essential to collate the information available. Also, he was assistant Secretary of a large motorcycle club of 820 members which was involved in all facets of motorcycle competition. The present Secretary who was an old unwell man who was about to retire from the position and Clark realised that he would not have the time to address envelopes etc, for entries, newsletters and other correspondence in long hand as the older man had done, and this was the secondary reason for his desire to become proficient with these programs.
The course students were assigned a paper to be handed in at the end of the 6 months and would account for 50% of their course result.
The advice given them was to choose as their topic something interesting, worthwhile and if possible unique.
Clark had noticed in the past 6 months 5 deaths which were to him a little strange insofar as whilst the cause of death was given as heart failure, the autopsies could not identify what caused the heart's stopping in each case as there was no scarring of the heart muscle, no badly blocked arteries, no aneurisms and no suspect toxicology except the presence of a very rare enzyme which was not believed to play any part in deaths. The fact of the matter was that the hearts had stopped so the call of heart failure was dead accurate. There is a difference between heart attack and heart failure.
Two of the deaths were of females and three were of males, with all 5 people being apparently healthy normal people between 40 and 65 years.
He mused that if in the past 6 months his Coroner had had 5 similar baffling cases, how many had the city's 4 other coroners struck in say, the past 2 years.
He approached his boss with his desire to use this study for his paper, and secured his permission to contact the other Coroners asking for their lists of similar deaths, and in turn ask their permission to interview the deceased peoples spouses or partners for any details which may help him reach a conclusion. He duly received permission from all 5 Coroners and was instructed to deal with the bereaved in a tactful and gentle manner.
The 5 lists contained 64 names of spouses or partners of the deceased, out of which 34 granted him permission to interview them. A database was initiated with fields for every possible piece of information gained.
The initial nitty gritty of these interviews was that all the deceased, equally men and women, were at the time of their death having sex, and died after between 10 and 15 minutes of orgasm. This knowledge was in some cases imparted reluctantly and further gentle questioning brought to light that in most cases the subject's ears turned quite blue, and their fingers clenched grotesquely whether painfully wrapped around a penis or boob or not. Most of those interviewed reported attacks of lesser intensity occurring once or twice in the 2 weeks preceding the passing, with the person returning to normal within about 15 minutes after the frightening experience. It was a reasonable assumption that if some procedure or medication was applied within the said 10 to 15 minutes the deaths could possibly be prevented.
The only problem was that if research was to be done to prevent these deaths, the only way anyone knew they had had whatever it was that caused the heart to slow down until it stopped completely in the 10 or 15 minutes time frame, they were already dead and nothing would show up as the cause of the heart slowing down, this being the eventual primary cause of the death, that is of course except the presence of the enzyme which was not flagged as a contributing factor in the deaths.
Bruce Wayne was a young doctor at the city's largest hospital, and loved shagging older women, mainly because they had the experience to throw a good fuck and were so grateful for the attention.
He had finally worn down 50 years old Intensive Care Sister Lois Kent's apprehension and had taken her to a storage room on the surgical floor where such equipment as a coronary crash trolley and portable X- ray machines were kept when not being used. Also there was a spare patient's trolley on which he intended to fuck the bejabbers out of Lois.
They had stripped and were going along very nicely until Lois climaxed at the same moment that Bruce felt her suddenly go limp, her ears go blue and her fingers clench. He got off her and felt her carotid artery for a pulse, finding her pulse to be only a quarter of what it should be, 15 a minute and reducing. He panicked as he brought to mind how many hospital, moral, ethical and legal rules he was breaking, shagging someone else's wife in working hours in a restricted area for starters. Discovery of his illicit shagging if she died would be disastrous to his career.
He did the only thing he could think of. Within 2 minutes he switched on the defibulator and as she was already naked, zapped her chest with a charge of 300 joules and she quickly recovered to his great delight. They both thought, in talking after, that her passing out had been due to the excellence of his cock work.
Clark's interviews in relation to his subject of interest had been mentioned at a staff meeting a few days previously and the blue ears and clutching fingers rang a bell. He could not pass on his experience with Lois without causing him trouble so sent an anonymous letter to Clark suggesting that her pulse being restored by the defibulator may bear examination as part of his study.
Clark was excited by this news but reasoned that all people between 40 and 65 could not be reasonably expected to have access to a coronary crash trolley when they decided to fuck.
Clark asked 2 men of the hospital's cardiac research division, Ben Down and Phillip McCavity if they knew of any effects the rogue enzyme, known as McConachy's Enzyme, was responsible for and was surprised and elated when they told him that the enzymes properties were unknown but; by accident it was found that it could be neutralised, by an unknown at this time, component of common or garden variety liquorice. Again, Clark knew that it would be pushing shit uphill to be taken seriously if it was to be suggested that "if you're going to fuck, have a piece of liquorice first," that is, of course if the enzyme proved to be a contributing factor.
He sent all 34 who had responded to his study solicitation letters asking to meet with him at a city hotel meeting room to discuss the possible formation of a bereaved support group as he felt that he was onto something which may save more deaths of this type.
Twenty four of them agreed to attend and after nibbles and drinks Clark told them that as he was at least gaining some City and State Government support for his project, he felt that he was being taken seriously and hoped that they could form a steering committee that night to form a bona fide support group for those who had lost partners to these mysterious tragedies, and also they may even be able to creditably push for serious research to be undertaken on the problem as well. He told them that some ideas he had would have to be put into operation by the support group as his brief only extended so far, and to further gain more information the members should be asked to answer a questionnaire he had created with some highly personal questions, to be answered hopefully honestly, to be worthwhile in increasing the content of the database. Naturally, the identities of the persons submitting the questionnaires were to be secret.
Joe, a 50 year old teacher was installed as interim President, Mary a 58 year old housewife as Publicity Officer, Sam, at 40 the youngest was to be interim Secretary and Helen at 43 was appointed interim Treasurer.
The 4 decide to stay back a little while after the meeting to discuss some necessary nuts and bolts issues such as establishing a bank account, designing and having printed a small number of letter heads. They then split into pairs for more discussion, Joe with Mary, and Sam with Helen.
The paired couples hit it off from the very first moment and Joe was pleasantly surprised when forthright Mary suggested that seeing they were both unattached and she assumed that he had normal libido as she had and felt they could relieve each others itches, they take a room in the hotel for the night. They did and what a night they had relieving months of built sexual energy. After minimal foreplay he mounted her and she was so tight, he though her pussy had partially healed up through lack of use.
What they did not know was that Sam and Helen also took a room at Helen's suggestion, and also had a ball, some exuberant shagging and also some tender lovemaking, thereby relieving their itches very satisfactorily as well. Joe awoke early next morning to the feel of Mary's hand caressing his morning glory. Then they fucked again before showering together.
When I say that they did not know of each other's liaison next door to one another's rooms, it was not until 7.00am in the morning when they unwittingly met again whilst checking out early endeavouring not to be seen by anyone who knew any of the four. They astounded the clerk with their hilarious outbursts at being found out and arranged to meet for coffee late in the afternoon at Mary's house.
When they met later, they had had some time to think about the format the group should follow. Joe suggested that within days they should send out the questionnaires as suggested and designed by Clark so that they had the replies back before their first proper meeting as an organisation in 2 weeks time. Joe and Sam had not realised that each other was a very heavy investor in the new hotel where the initial meeting took place and the 2 rooms were used for their enjoyment at greatly reduced rates due to their connection with the hotel. On discovery of this, they agreed that their connection with the hotel would prove to be useful in the future to be able to use meeting rooms, bedrooms and to have dining facilities at reduced rates.
The next meeting was for bereaved members only but down the road a meeting would be arranged with attendance of the bereaved and one guest preferably of the opposite sex each.
Whilst the emphasis is to be on gaining information to help combat the deaths in the future, support for the bereaved is to be important also with hopefully an active social side to the group being encouraged. Members will be asked to furnish the names of any websites which may be of value to the group be it for research or social purposes.
Questionnaires to be received by the Secretary no later than 3 days before the next meeting to allow for presentation of the results at that meeting.
This questionnaire should either be filled in honestly or not at all, and if desired, parts only may be filled in. Please return ASAP.
AS THEY WERE RETURNED ANSWERED. BY 12 MALES AND 12 FEMALES
The next meeting was a success with all 24 who had attended the first night's meeting attending and Clark brought the house down with his guarded statement that liquorice could be an important ally in alleviating the heart stoppages which had devastated them, and with his tongue in his cheek suggested that they eat liquorice every time they got randy as insurance.
Joe, Mary, Sam and Helen were officially appointed as the office bearers as they had been for the interim period and such items as annual membership fees and the adoption of a Constitution were discussed and generally resolved without anyone becoming over officious or uptight. It was noticed that there was considerable pairing up of men and women as the evening progressed and the original four were not the only ones to take advantage of Jo's telling them of the special members room rates. It was put to them very surreptitiously that the carrying of luggage through reception was not a condition of taking a room for the night.
Actually, 3 more couples stayed the night and accidentally met at breakfast in the morning.
The results of the questionnaire were enlightening to say the least and were incorporated into the database as a codicil. Whilst not actually being perverts, there were some multi-faceted people amongst them and the results when read out surprised them all and there was a lot of furtive looking around the room going on with them trying to identify the persons they thought likely to have admitted to some of the questions such as swinging now or in the future, and the same-sex and incest questions.
He passed in his paper at the end of the 6 months and was amazed that he received 96% for it, top of the class by miles. At the presentation of awards, the guest speaker told the gathering that whether or not their databases achieved a result, that is if in fact they were meant to achieve a result, they were judged on the gathering of information and it's presentation, not the use the database might be put to by themselves or others.
The researchers, Ben and Phillip, had received good funding for their work and it was looking promising that the mystery component of the liquorice was the answer and if it could be isolated, the big problem was then to come up with something like an annual shot of it for introducing the substance into "at risk" peoples systems, that is, males and females over 40 years of age.
Time went by with the group meeting every 2 weeks and the gatherings becoming more and more erotic. Several of the couples had become very close and spent weekends together either at one or another's home or out of town for dirty weekends.
Joe, Mary, Sam and Helen had been away together a couple of times with the inevitable result; swapping.
None of the four had experienced threesomes and when Joe and Sam double teamed first Mary and afterwards Helen, the girls found that they rated oral and vaginal preferable to anal and vaginal. They tried both their cocks in Mary's pussy but could not succeed, and they guessed that 2 very long cocks would be required for this. Their 4 paunches caused by good living did not help. When each of the men received the attention of the 2 girls at the same time it sent them into raptures and when one of the girls, whilst sitting a guys face, inserted a finger in the rectum and the prostate rubbed, set each off roaring like a bull. And women are generally reckoned to be the loud lovers!
It came to pass at the 6 month stage of the groups formation that all 24 agreed to have a 2 night, 2 day visit to a "clothing optional" resort about 2 hours away where there would be only a miniscule risk of running into anyone who knew them. They had booked one entire wing of the resort comprising 3 rooms each with 2 king sized beds and including a large carpeted meeting room for their sole use. Because of Joe and Sam's connection with the hospitality industry the weekend's cost was very reasonable,
When they gathered for dinner, clothed, on arrival Friday evening, they were told that their accommodation wing was separate from the rest of the building and was "out of bounds' to other guests and staff, but with meals to be taken in the main dining room with clothes optional, as after all, the place was advertised as "clothes optional." It was noticed that the serviettes provided were very thick, as a male guest had had hot gravy drip onto his genitals some time back, with the resulting burns ruining the weekend for him and his young secretary.
It took a little while for some of the group to strip, and some of the women wore bikini bottoms for a couple of hours, but generally speaking after a little while and the initial novelty of being able to compare cock sizes and pussy appearance wore off, they settled down to enjoy themselves and whoever they wanted to enjoy. All the women and most of the guys had shaved their pubes because some had false teeth and could not feel hairs between the teeth without checking in a mirror. They all agreed that even with your own teeth, it was not fun pulling pubes from your mouth.
On the first night, Friday night and Saturday morning, sex between the accepted couples, threesomes, foursomes and swapping sapped the menfolk of their juices and then all but 2 of the women enjoyed girl on girl sex, 3 for the first time.
The final night, Saturday night saw them all swapping and fucking like minks until they could fuck no more and then the morning saw the original couples fucking again but in moderation with them keeping in mind the need for saving their energy for an agreed upon orgy, to be held in the meeting room from lunch time on. To make things interesting the room was in darkness except for 2 small wall lights to prevent people being trodden on. Just imagine how you would like it if you were just about to cum into a new pussy if someone trod on your bum forcing your cock into her further than thought possible. The occasional same sex momentarily accidental touching did not cause any hassles with the guys and was OK with the women.
They checked out after what everyone agreed had been a wonderful and enlightening weekend and left for their homes satiated.
The 2 researchers, Ben Down and Phil McCavity, had made a ground breaking discovery and had isolated the rogue enzyme and were well on the way to cloning it to a scientific compound which they were confident could be then used in clinical trials for eventual future distribution and halting the process that had taken so many lives. Clark's paper had created enormous interest throughout the world and it was only then that the world wide incidence of people literally shagging themselves to death, and was by then named as the Lane Syndrome, was recognised as a relatively common death.
