Barb lost herself in twisting and turning dance movements. Above all else, she loved dancing. On stage she could think. On stage she could be whoever she wanted to be. She stopped to thrust her hips suggestively—stage right, center, stage left and back to center. She knew there were men and women in the crowd pretending to be making love to her as she gyrated before them. She smiled at a redheaded woman in the near corner fondling her own breasts, mimicking Barb’s moves. She often replayed her favorite lovemaking moments while performing, to intensify the experience for everyone. Intense passion—that’s what she was selling. No more. But no less. The audience deserved the best she could create for them.
Barb pulled the thong away from her body and let it snap against her belly. She gave her patrons a startled look of fright and surprise. How many wanted to leap up and protect her?
She peered over at Ruth and Desiree, who still gawked. Barb wanted to purr when she saw that they’d joined hands as if trying to garner strength to comprehend what they were witnessing.
They’d accepted her invitation to join her for their tenth college reunion. Both had gone through recent divorces. While the three of them exchanged Christmas cards every year, Barb hadn’t spoken with either since they’d cleaned out their living quarters right after graduation. Both women, however, had eagerly accepted her invitation to stay with her for the reunion. The campus was a quick twenty miles away. Staying at her house would give them plenty of time to catch up on what had been happening over the past decade.
