“Just pizza and some beer and…a bikini.” 
    A bikini?
    Mac almost swallowed his tongue.  There, walking out of the French doors of the guest house was Gina – wrapped up in scraps of blue Lycra and green silk. 
    He should have taken the leave of absence.
    Gina didn’t notice Mac at first and for that he was glad.  He took his time looking his fill.  She was curvy in all the right places and between the long curly hair and the jeweled colors she was wearing she was bewitching.  He could picture her with gold bangles on her wrists and maybe one of those barely-there gold chains around her waist…and found himself breaking out in a cold sweat.  He was just about to clear his throat to alert her to his presence when she looked up.
    “Mac?  What are you doing here?”
    “I came bearing gifts,” he said lightly, hoping that she didn’t notice that he was standing in a puddle of his own drool.  “I hope you haven’t eaten.”
    Gina looked beyond Mac to the pizza box on the table and nearly screeched with delight.  “You are a lifesaver!  I was just wishing for some junk food and here you are with pizza.  It’s perfect!”
    “You were wishing for junk food?”
    “Your mother stocked the kitchen for me with all kinds of wonderful home-cooked meals and stuff to make salad s with but right now, after the day I had, all I wanted was comfort food.”  She walked over to the table and opened the box as she sat down.  “Oh, pepperoni is my favorite!  Thank you, Mac; this was very thoughtful of you.”
    Had he known he was going to have to sit and eat with a half-naked Gina, he would have gone straight home.  As it was , he was thinking he should run while he could and take a cold shower.  He eyed the pool and considered his options. 
    “Aren’t you going to join me?” she asked, grabbing a slice from the box and not waiting for him before taking a bit e.  She moaned in pure ecstasy.  “Now that is what I’m talking about.”
    He was in hell.  There was no other way to describe it.  He was tired, hungry and now he was horny too.
    Perfect.
    Not having any other choice, Mac pulled out the chair opposite Gina’s and sat down.  She handed him a slice and then a beer and Mac took a long swallow of it before he could make himself speak.  “So how did it go with your dad today?”
    Gina finished chewing and then sighed.  “He’s worse than I expected.”
    “Did you talk to the doctors?”
    She shook her head.  “Today was just about spending time together.”  She stopped and considered her next words.  “I guess I wasn’t sure what I expected but once I walked in and saw him I knew that he was worse than he had let on.”
    Mac didn’t know what to say to her just then so he simply nodded and waited for her to go on.
    “I know that I said that I didn’t want to know; I didn’t want to focus on his prognosis but I realize now it would just be me being in a state of denial.  I know that there’s nothing that I can do for him except be here and that’s hard for me to deal with because I feel so helpless.”  Her breath caught on the last word and she was mortified that more tears sprang to her eyes.  She had thought
she ’d gotten them all out earlier but apparently she was wrong.
    Without conscious thought, Mac reached across the table and placed his hand on top of Gina’s.  She looked up at him at the contact and he felt like he’d been struck by lightning, so powerful was the connection.  “I wish that there was something I could say that would make you feel better,” he began, carefully removing his hand from hers.  “I’ve never been in your position but I imagine if it was my father that I’d feel the same way.  Talking to his doctors might not change the outcome but you might find some comfort in knowing exactly what he’s going to need.”
    What Mac was saying made sense and Gina was both grateful for his words and the distraction.  Right now she didn’t want
