 Womb Time

She stands there somewhat nervously and he smiles and opens the door wider and his eyes approve and she is glad she is wearing the new head-scarf and he says oh come in come in and reaches to help her slide past him in the narrow doorway and doesn’t cede an inch and they touch briefly and she goes ahead and enters the large hallway and he watches the swing of skirt and smooth curve of calf and follows after her and she asks where’s Jill and he says oh in the bath and adds you know she can’t control her need and she says control and quirks her brow and the head-scarf slips and she re-adjusts badly and he says she’ll be out soon she’s had enough bath time and she just stares and he says enough womb time and she repeats womb time and he bows his head and laughs and says yes and she keeps staring and he says oh you know the return and she says no she doesn't and repeats the word return flatly and he’s embarrassed and says oh Jill’s womb time is her return to the waters of the womb and when she opens her mouth to say bloody hell Jill is right there in a yellow silk robe and her dark hair is wet and slick against her scalp and she nods and says yes her womb time really helps and he looks uneasy and she just stares and Jill takes them each by the arm and smiles possessively at him as she asks in a brittle voice what their guest would like to drink and she says oh she isn’t staying and a single glass of wine will be fine.
