TITLE: Temptress Fug-It
GENRE: Adult Science Fiction/Alternate History
Jack Watt has unexpectedly been transported back in time, to 1947. He is encountering Scarlett, a woman with whom he shares a destiny.
“Okay Captain. Shall I call you Captain?” I ventured.
“No, I’ve been demobilized for a while now. I guess Scarlett will have to do,” she replied a little sadly. And you’re…Jack, right? Jack what?”
“Yes,” I answered, deadpan.
“Yes what?” she asked, not yet getting it, getting a little pissed.
“Yes. Watt.” I knew I was pushing my luck, but the ice between us desperately needed breaking.
“What is your last name?” she asked again, two lines appearing between those phenomenal eyes.
“Yes. Watt is my last name,” I said deciding it would work now or not ever.
“Just how hard did you hit your fucking head you…oh, oh, oh, you motherfucker!” This was followed by a laugh that I would remember and treasure the rest of my days.
“And I guess Who is still on first, you’re on second, and I Don’t Know’s on third?” she managed while laughing. “Do you run that routine on every girl you meet?”
“Only the drop-dead beautiful ones.”
“And how’s that working out for you?”
“Results aren’t all in yet, still waiting for a few out-lying counties. And for your information, Doll, Mr. How? He’s our fucking manager.”
“Let me tell you something Mr. Watt, that was fun, but you’ll have to work a hell of a lot harder than that to get anywhere near second base with this, uh, Doll.
