Will Marcia never learn?
"Jumping the Gun" by shaffer40



For two weeks, Marcia's thoughtful new boyfriend waited for her each day at the bus stop in his warm car. This saved her from the final stage of her long trek home--a five-block walk in the snow. Her kids liked him; he took them out for burgers, fixed her son's model plane. Intimacy was the next step in this promising relationship. The day after found her walking the five blocks home in the cold.
