I thought about my ex-wives scattered throughout the solar system. All the girlfriends I had escorted when I needed a quick buck. I remembered their smiles, their faces, and their behavioral quirks. Yet, it all seemed distant, as if I had been merely an observer and not a participant.

Isn’t it lonely to live without love? I wouldn’t know because I had never really experienced it. There were medicines you could take, but over time their effect wore off. How terrible, some might say. What a cruel fate. But I assure you, I left some very satisfied clients.

satisfaction is wonderful but love means being more than satisfied, doesn't it? love alone satisfies in ways satisfaction can only dream about. very interesting read! i wish it was more concrete, like in a story b/c i want to read MORE of it! is there any more coming? if not, please fill in the parts that you teased me with. lovely. write on!

Thanks Allison. There's more coming. Don't forget to read FSR 1, if you haven't already. It's the first part. Once I'm done with part 2, I intend to write the last part- FSR 3.
