Pamela’s damn pretty, a real treasure, huge piles of gold and gems and pearls. She’s so much more attractive than any other girl I’ve dated that I’ve never felt in control. Maybe I don’t really deserve her. I felt it the first time I stole a kiss from those ruby lips. I was almost shocked I hadn’t been slapped, surprised that no thugs had stormed in to teach me my place.
