"And it's not like there was ever great fireworks in bed. But now we went down from a low calorie diet to downright hunger strike. I need..." "I know, sweetie." "There is this guy at work, Asi from finance, he always complements me and he's so obviously totally into me.
Around her the soft swish of the gym treadmills and the grunts of the weight lifters served as background soundtrack to her day dreaming. With Andy and Steve it was a competition." "Like a race? Men with egos the size of trucks." Alice shook her head. They just had to prove to each other that they're better lovers." "Wow." "It wasn't up on the table, but it was obvious both did their utmost to hear me moan louder and more often." "Who won? Steve was more experienced but Andy compensated with enthusiasm. Andy would kiss my neck then Steve would cover my back with amazing love bites. Synergy, Ana, pure synergy, we were three bodies as one." "Didn't know you're into eastern bullshit."

"I'm spinning, you very much not married desperate lady." "Bitch." "Slut." They both laughed. " Ana almost unconsciously rubbed her crotch against the spinning-bike seat. Steve went down on me and Andy checked his into the suppliers' entrance." "You mean? Your turn." "There's a good reason the roles are set the way they are." "No there isn't."
