He sighed with longing. He couldn't help staring at such sinewy, creamy curves in front of him. She sighed with desire, as light reflected off such promising sweetness, growing more taut every minute. Each turn mesmerized their eyes; every twist held their gaze as if by sheer magic. They had to wait for the right moment, when their anticipation would be rewarded. Finally, he murmured softly into her ear, "I just love watching taffy-pulling machines!"


Author Notes
Favorite one to watch was in front of a favorite family Italian restaurant downtown in our capital city. This is a reference to salt-water taffy. In the United Kingdom I guess taffy is called 'chews.' It is similar to soft toffee or soft caramel. It has been popular in the U.S.A. since at least the 1920s.
