He was inside the office alone, and he beckoned her to enter. She told him that she had a crush on him. He laughed, then asked if she would like to see his private office. They talked briefly and acknowledged that there had been a chemistry that was there before and that they were both attracted to each other. Then he asked her if he could kiss her. She said yes. In the windowless hallway adjacent to the study, they kissed. Before returning to her desk, she wrote down her name and telephone number for him.
Later, in the hallway, they kissed again. She unbuttoned her jacket; she unhooked her bra; and he touched her breasts with his hands and mouth. He took a phone call, and so they moved from the hallway into the back office. He put his hand down her pants and stimulated her manually in the genital area. While he continued talking on the phone, she performed oral sex on him. He finished his call, and, a moment later, told her to stop. She said, "I want to complete that." He said that he needed to wait until he trusted her more. Then he made a joke that he hadn't had that in a long time.
They had a second sexual encounter two days later. They kissed. After a few minutes, she told him that she needed to get back to her desk. He suggested that she bring him some slices of pizza. They had a sexual encounter during this visit. They kissed, and he touched her bare breasts with his hands and mouth. Someone approached the door leading to the hallway, which was ajar, and said that he had a telephone call. While he was on the telephone, he unzipped his pants and exposed himself, and she performed oral sex. Again, he stopped her before he ejaculated.
During this visit, he told her that he liked her smile and her energy. He also said: "I'm usually around on weekends, no one else is around, and you can come and see me."
They had their third sexual encounter on New Year's Eve. She told him her name -- she had the impression that he had forgotten it in the six weeks since their encounters because, when passing her in the hallway, he had called her "Kiddo." He replied that he knew her name; in fact, he added, having lost the phone number she had given him, he had tried to find her in the phonebook.
They moved to the study, and then they were kissing and he lifted her sweater and exposed her breasts and was fondling them with his hands and with his mouth. She performed oral sex. Once again, he stopped her before he ejaculated because he didn't know her well enough or he didn't trust her yet.
They had another sexual encounter the next Sunday. He telephoned her early that afternoon. It was the first time he had called her at home. She asked him what he was doing and he said he was going to be going into the office soon. She said, "Oh, do you want some company?" He said, "Oh, that would be great." She went to her office, and he called to arrange their rendezvous.
They made an arrangement that he would have the door to his office open, and she would pass by the office with some papers and then he would stop her and invite her in. That was exactly what happened. They spoke for about 10 minutes in the office. They sat on the sofas. Then they went into the back study and they were intimate in the bathroom.
During this bathroom encounter, they kissed, and he touched her bare breasts with his hands and his mouth. He talked about performing oral sex on her. But she stopped him because she was menstruating, and he did not do it. She did perform oral sex on him.
Afterward, they moved to the office and talked. He was chewing on a cigar. And then he had the cigar in his hand and he was looking at the cigar in a naughty way. She looked at the cigar and she looked at him and said, "We can do that too some time."
They had another sexual encounter. They had had phone sex for the first time the week prior, and she was feeling a little bit insecure about whether he had liked it or didn't like it. She wondered if this was developing into some kind of a longer-term relationship than what she thought it initially might have been, that maybe he had some regular girlfriend.
She questioned him about his interest in her. She asked him why he didn't ask her any questions about herself, and whether this was just about sex, or did he have some interest in trying to get to know her as a person. He laughed and said, "I cherish the time that I have with you." She considered it a little bit odd for him to speak of cherishing their time together when she felt like he didn't really even know her yet."
They continued talking as they went to the hallway by the study. Then, with her in mid-sentence, he just started kissing her. He lifted her top and touched her breasts with his hands and mouth. Then he unzipped his pants and exposed himself, and she performed oral sex.
At one point during the encounter, someone entered the office. He zipped up real quickly and went out and came back in. She laughed because he had walked out there and he was visibly aroused; she just thought it was funny.
At their sixth sexual encounter, they had their first lengthy and personal conversation. He telephoned her at her desk and they planned their rendezvous. At her suggestion, they bumped into each other in the hallway, then walked together to the area of the private study.
There they kissed. She was wearing a long dress that buttoned from the neck to the ankles. He unbuttoned her dress and he unhooked her bra, and took the dress off her shoulders and moved the bra. He was looking at her and touching her and telling her how beautiful she was. He touched her breasts with his hands and his mouth, and touched her genitals, first through underwear and then directly. She performed oral sex on him.
After their sexual encounter, they sat and talked in the office for about 45 minutes. She thought he might be responding to her suggestion during their previous meeting about trying to get to know her. It was during that conversation that their friendship started to blossom.
When she prepared to depart, he kissed her arm and told her he'd call her, and then she said, "Yeah, well, what's my phone number?" He recited both her home number and her office number off the top of his head. He called her at her desk later that afternoon and said he had enjoyed their time together.
He terminated their relationship (only temporarily, as it happened) on Monday. He telephoned her at her apartment that day. From the tone of his voice, she could tell something was wrong. She asked to come see him, but he said he did not know how long he would be there. She went to the office (the only time she ever went to the office uninvited).
He told her that he no longer felt right about their intimate relationship, and he had to put a stop to it. She was welcome to continue coming to visit him, but only as a friend. He hugged her but would not kiss her.
After the break-up, there continued to be flirtation when they saw each other. After passing her in a hallway one night, he telephoned her at home and said he was disappointed that, because she had already left for the evening, they could not get together. The call implied to her that he was interested in starting up again.
On Friday, she was walking down a hallway when she passed him, who was wearing the first necktie she had given him. She asked where he had gotten the tie, and he replied: "Some girl with style gave it to me." Later, he telephoned her at her desk and asked if she would like to see a movie. His plan was that she would position herself in the hallway by the White House Theater at a certain time, and he would invite her to join him and a group of guests as they entered. She responded that she did not want people to think she was lurking around uninvited. She asked if they could arrange a rendezvous over the weekend instead, and he said he would try.
On a Sunday, they resumed their sexual contact. He telephoned her at her desk and suggested that she come to the office on the pretext of delivering papers to him. She went to the office. In her folder was a gift for him, a Hugo Boss necktie.
In the hallway by the study, they kissed. On this occasion, he focused on her pretty exclusively, kissing her bare breasts and fondling her genitals. At one point, he inserted a cigar into her vagina, then put the cigar in his mouth and said: "It tastes good." After they were finished, she left the office and walked through the garden.
They had a sexual encounter in the hallway. He touched her breasts with his mouth and hands. He unzipped his pants, because she could never unbutton his pants; she always had trouble with it. She performed oral sex. He did not ejaculate in her presence.
During this encounter, someone called out from the office that he had a phone call. He went back to the office for a moment, then took the call in the study. He indicated that she should perform oral sex while he talked on the phone, and she obliged.
A second interruption occurred a few minutes later. They were in the study. He looked at her and she looked at him and he jetted out into the office, and she panicked. She exited hurriedly through the dining room door. That evening, he called and asked she why she had run off. She told him that she didn't know if he was going to be coming back. He was a little upset with her because she left.
They had no further physical contact for the remainder of the year. They did talk by telephone, especially in her first weeks at the new job. He phoned her four or five times in the first month, then two or three times a month thereafter. During at least seven of the calls, they had phone sex.
He telephoned her at about 6:30 A.M. and they had phone sex, after which he exclaimed, "Good morning!" and then said: "What a way to start a day!"
During a phone conversation, she told him that she wanted to have intercourse with him. He responded that he could not do so because of the possible consequences. The two of them argued, and he asked if he should stop calling her. "No", she responded.
With love's light wings did I o'er perch these walls
For stony limits cannot hold love out,
And what love can do that dares love attempt.
-- Romeo and Juliet 2:2
Happy Valentine's Day.
Two weeks later, they had a sexual encounter -- their first in nearly eleven months. Wearing a navy blue dress from the Gap, she attended the radio address at his invitation, then had her photo taken with him. She had not been alone with him since she had worked with him, and she was really nervous." He told her that he wanted to give her something. She waited a little while for him and then they went into the back office. Once they had passed from the office toward the private study he started to say something to her, and she pestered him to kiss her; it had been a long time since they had been alone. He told her to wait a moment, as he had presents for her. As belated Christmas gifts, he gave her a hat pin and a special edition of Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass.
The Whitman book was the most sentimental gift he had given her: it was beautiful and it meant a lot to her. During this visit, he said he had seen her Valentine's Day message in the paper, and he talked about his fondness for Romeo and Juliet".
After he gave her the gifts, they went back over by the bathroom in the hallway, and kissed. While they were kissing, he unbuttoned her dress and fondled her breasts with her bra on, and then took them out of her bra and was kissing them and touching them with his hands and with his mouth.
And then she was touching him in his genital area through his pants, and she unbuttoned his shirt and was kissing his chest. And then she wanted to perform oral sex on him, and so she did. He heard someone in the office, so they moved into the bathroom.
She continued to perform oral sex and then he pushed her away, as he always did before he came, and then she stood up and said, "I care about you so much; I don't understand why you won't let me make you come; it's important to me; I mean, it just doesn't feel complete, it doesn't seem right".
They hugged, and he said that he didn't want to get addicted to her, and he didn't want her to get addicted to him." They looked at each other for a moment. Then, saying "I don't want to disappoint you," he consented. For the first time, she performed oral sex through completion.
They had what proved to be their final sexual encounter with him on Saturday. He told her by telephone that he had something important to tell her. He came in on crutches, the result of a knee injury two weeks earlier.
Their sexual encounter began with a sudden kiss. She was babbling on about something, and he just kissed her to her up. He unbuttoned her blouse and touched her breasts without removing her bra. He went to put his hand down her pants, and then she unzipped them to make it easier. She didn't have any panties on, so he manually stimulated her. She wanted him to touch her genitals with his genitals, and he did so, lightly and without penetration. Then she performed oral sex on him, again until he ejaculated.
On Saturday he ended their intimate relationship. She got acall at about 11 A.M. that day, inviting her to come. She arrived wearing a straw hat with the hat pin he had given her, and bringing gifts for him, including a puzzle and a Banana Republic shirt. She gave him the gifts in the dining room, and they moved to the area of the study.
He explained that they had to end their intimate relationship. Earlier in his marriage, he told her, he had had hundreds of affairs; but since turning forty, he had made a concerted effort to be faithful. He said he was attracted to her, considered her a great person, and hoped they would remain friends. He pointed out that he could do a great deal for her. The situation, he stressed, was not her fault. Weeping, she tried to persuade him not to end the sexual relationship, but he was unyielding, then and subsequently. Although they kissed and hugged thereafter, the sexual relationship was over.
