I have read many stories on the computer but I'll have to admit this one is quite different from any I have read, I'm not saying there isn't any written, I'm saying I have not read any. This story was told to me about a year ago, while I was on vacation lying in the sun on a Pacific Island. I found it somewhat hard to believe until I had heard the complete story from beginning to end.
After thinking about it for a few months I have decided to write about it, the names and places have been changed but the story itself is changed very little from what was told to me. I filled in some of the more intimate language as most of that was not told to me. The acts themselves were, some very vividly.
The story starts when I met and started talking with some people sitting next to me on the flight to the Islands for a two week vacation in the sun and sand. We visited and soon became comfortable talking to each other and I found out through our conversation that we would be staying at the same resort. By the time the plane landed we had made plans to meet for dinner, or maybe drinks, while lounging around the pool.
I really didn't want to feel obligated to meet with anyone for any particular reason, but since I was there alone and didn't know anyone, it would be nice to have someone to talk to once in awhile.
I arrived in time to check in to my cabin, put my clothes on hangers and have dinner. I was sitting sipping an Island fruit drink of some kind, it was very good but it wasn't exactly a breakfast drink, not mine anyway. I figured a couple to many of those and it would be breakfast time before you knew anything again.
I sat watching the people dance when my new found friends happened to see me.Coming over they asked if I minded if they joined me. We sat talking in the warm night air when a man stopped and asked the woman, Ann, if she would like to dance, she looked at her husband and he said go for it honey, were here to have fun remember.
After she had left us alone he said, "You know Janet, three months ago, I would have paid the guy to take her and not bring her back,
I looked at him somewhat in shock, "and now?"
"Now, I wouldn't take a million bucks for her."
I looked at him amazed, "what happened to change all of that? Did she freeze all your assets?" I said jokingly.
Smiling he said, "no Janet, nothing like that, I'm not real sure you would believe what happened if I told you."
"Why don't you try me, I'm a very good listener."
"He sat thinking then said slowly. Well it started about a year or so ago. Before we start I must tell you. If you want to hear the complete story you'll have to get Ann to tell you her side of the story, as well as hearing mine, because only she knows her side of the story."
I sat wondering, how long of a story is this going to be if it takes both of them to tell it. I was to find out it took three sessions spanning three different days. There names were Ben and Ann Thompson. Ben 44, I guessed to be around 5-8 160pds a few gray hair in an otherwise dark head of hair and somewhat handsome in a rugged sort of way, and Ann, 43 5-5 120pds 34b 25w 35h, long, almost black hair, they had two children both girls, Paige 22 and Kim 21.
Ben went on, Like I said, it was about a year and a half ago that things started to sour at home. Oh don't get me wrong, we had sex, but it had become more like something we were supposed to do, rather than something we couldn't wait to do.
The girls were moved out going to college. We were alone ninety percent of the time, so there was no reason not to have sex anytime we wanted, no one could hear us if we both screamed as loud as we could, but for some reason, neither of us seemed to be that interested in having sex anylonger, we had become bored with each other and things were going down hill fast. We seemed to not really want to be around each other any longer. Having sex with Ann was almost like having it with a blow up doll. she more or less laid there, allowing me take what I wanted and very rarely had an orgasm.
It was about six months later that I started having a wondering eye, some of the gals where I work were starting to look pretty damn good to me.
About this time, I was invited to join a group from the office for a drink or two on Friday, s after work. I didn't really want to start doing that, but this cute gal, I'd say around thirty or so, flashed her lashes at me and I caved,
I called Ann and told her I would be a little late, there were people from the company wanting to have a cocktail and asked me to join them. In a monotone voice she said, "go ahead, we don't have any plans, we never have plans to do anything anymore.
I'll be home in a little while, Love you."
"Ya bye." was Ann's reply
"I could hear the disappointment in her voice but that night I didn't care, I promised myself, I was going to enjoy my night out. I danced with a couple of the women from work. The gal who had invited me to join them after work, came and got me to dance with her, when the dance ended she gave me a kiss on the neck as she wiped it off very slowly saying, you feel every bit as good as I thought you would, next time you can hold me closer if you like. God it felt so good to have a woman touching me and at least acting like she might want me. I finished my drink and left before anything more happened. I wasn't ready to take that big step yet. I had loved Ann for almost twenty five years, to me, it was worth fighting for to keep us together."
"As our sex life wained, I began wondering if Ann was cheating on me. I hated to think she would do that to her family.If she was, the girls would be devastated if we divorced and that's what would happen if I ever found out she was seeing someone else. But what else could it be? A lot of the signs pointed in that direction from everything I had heard and read about women cheating. I had no idea what else might be causing the problems she seemed to be having. Or, had we allowed our marriage to become stale while we had been busy raising our daughters and providing for our future. Or, had we just grown tired of each other?"
"I have to admit up until a couple of years ago, Ann was a tiger in bed, I'm not saying we done it hanging from the ceiling or anything. In fact as I think about it now, we were a pretty vanilla couple, oh we both loved sex and done it a lot, but pretty much the same way every time. Like I said, compared to now, we were a pretty vanilla couple. For years, we had many great nights together, but the clast couple of years it had dwindled to almost nothing."
"Then one day a co worker and I were having lunch together at work. he's a little older than I am married to the same woman for almost thirty years and seemed to be very happy whenever you saw them together at any of the company functions. I felt I needed to talk to someone about our problem and I knew Jack wouldn't laugh or make snide remarks like, I'll come with you and help you out, that sort of thing. Jack, I hate to bother you with my problems, but I need to talk to someone like you, someone I can trust not to spread it around. I started by telling him pretty much all of what was going on in my life at home. He sat listening until I had finished saying what I had to say. Then he he said."
"Tell you what Ben, meet me after work, we'll have a drink and talk some more. I'm pretty sure I may be able to help you out with your problems. My wife Helen and I had our problem a couple of years back and just by a stroke of luck we were able to get our marriage back on track."
"That evening after work I met with Jack at the Best Western lounge for a drink and conversation. We made small talk for a few minutes then Jack said."
"Ben, My wife Helen and I were having much the same problem's as you and Ann are having now. It had gotten to the point if she would have asked for a divorce, I would have signed before reading.
Damn Jack, I had no idea, what did you guys do?
"Well its kind of a funny story. I was driving down this street over in Highland Heights and I saw a building with a big sign on it saying, make your life come to life again. I thought it must be a church of some kind, but it didn't have any of the usual trappings around it, so I thought what the hell, what do I have to lose, the way things are now, almost nothing."
"So I parked and went to the door, rang the bell and a man answered the door asking if I was a member, I said, "no, not yet anyway"
"What is it you want?" He asked
"I want my life to come back to life. My life is becoming a shambles and there doesn't seem to be anything I can do about it. My wife and I are about to become divorced if something doesn't change pretty soon. He opened the door and let me in. We talked awhile, me explaining my problems and how nothing we had tried seemed to be working. He had me sign a bunch of papers, swearing I was not with the police and neither me or my wife were being coerced into participating in anything against our will's."
After I had signed the papers he said."
"We meet on Tuesday and Friday evenings."
"I was instructed to come and bring my wife the following Friday night at around eight o clock, so everyone would get to meet us, its very informal, there's no confessions, unless someone wants to tell there story, that's strictly voluntary. After you attend a few meetings and we get to know each other, you will meet with the other members in the men, s room. Your wife will meet in the women, s room, everyone agrees this is the best, mixed company has two many hangups."
"So what Happened Jack? It must have worked, you and Helen are still married,"
"Yes we are Ben and very happy to. I must say it really woke us up."
