After super I sat on the couch and watched the Jefferson’s in Spanish on the TV.  Lisa sat in the floor between my legs, leaning against the couch.  I massaged her shoulders as she played with my legs.  Momma Saborio spent more time giving us both dirty looks, then watching TV.   We grabbed a passionate kiss in the hallway before going to our separate bedrooms for the night….  AAAahhh!

Monday morning, before sunrise, Lisa snuck into my bedroom.  She woke me up with a kiss and I ran my hand up under her dress.

“Noooo!”  She whispered, “I have to go to work. I will be home about 6:00.”

I grabbed her and pulled her onto the bed. She pounded on me and wiggled her way to freedom.  With a big horney smile on her face she wiggled her finger at me and pulled the door shut.  I heard the car start and disappear down the road.  I slept a bit longer until I heard Momma Saborio cooking breakfast.  I got up and went into the kitchen.  She handed me some toast and butter and motioned for me to help.  I got to work and in a few minutes she was making jokes about me that I didn’t understand, and laughing.  I think she thought that I may be a resident son in law in the learning stages.  Loren’s boyfriend showed up in time to eat with us, and then he took Momma into town for… something?

I did the dishes after they left and went back into my bedroom.  I closed the blinds on the window, and went back to bed.  I was awakened by the sound of a car coming up the dirt road.  It stopped in front of the house and then it left again.  I lay in bed listening as someone entered the house.  The door did not even have a lock on it!  I heard the door shut and footsteps walking around on the wood floors. They came down the hallway, the doorknob turned, and Lisa quietly came into the room.  She looked at herself in the full-length mirror on the back of the door. She unzipped her dress and placed it on the dresser.  She stepped out of her heels and slowly slipped off her stockings.  She walked back over to the mirror. I slipped out of the bed and quietly came from behind her.  I grasped her hands and raised them over her head, against the door, as I pushed my body against her back.  She screamed and squirmed. I held her solid.  I let her turn to see me and kissed her on the lips.

“I am so horney!”  I said, as I released her hands and grabbed her hips.

“She raised her knee and flattened my balls. I fell onto the bed trying to breathe.

“WHO ARE YOU?  AND WHY ARE YOU IN MY BEDROOM?” She asked. Her eyes flashed with anger.

I was totally confused.

“LISA!  Have you lost your mind?”  I said still trying to catch my breath.

She stood looking at me with a blank look on her face.

She slowly formed a familiar sinister smile, and sat on the edge of the bed.

“I am not Lisa….  I am Loren!  Lisa and I are twins!”  She giggled and quickly put her dress back on.

I rolled off of the bed in my boxer shorts as LOREN…. went into the kitchen.

“David and I came out here today and fished right here.  We had a really good time and I could not believe how well we get along.  He’s a smart kid!”  I looked back down into the water.

“He should be… he has a very intelligent father!”  She said sweetly.

“Yes… you and Andres are great parents.”  I said.

I looked at Loren. She was shaking her head back and forth at me.

“You are so damned blind!”  She said, as her attitude did a 180.

“Where did that come from?”  I asked.

“Haven’t you noticed that David’s hair is a little bit light for a Costa Rican child?”

“Yes… but I thought maybe it would darken with age.”

“No stupid…. have you noticed that he has flat feet?”

The color suddenly left my face.  I stared at her and could not speak.

“Yes!…  The answer to your question is yes!”  She said.


She giggled a little bit and stared me in the eyes.

“Well… other than the obvious answer…  I have learned that Costa Rican birth-control pills don’t work on Americans, evidently.”  She giggled a little bit more.

“I don’t want anything from you, and I couldn’t be happier that I have such a beautiful son.  I just thought that it was time that you knew.  Someday he will figure it out himself and we will have to deal with this.  I just wanted you to have advance warning and time to think about how you will handle it.”  She said, as I stared into her watery eyes.

      With everyone exhausted, we called another taxi and headed back to the dock.  We all squeezed into the back while momma rode in the front with the driver.  We carried the boys down the dock to the boat.  We made up beds for them in the main cabin.  Momma had the V-berth to herself.

      Loren and I shared an unused marina shower before returning to the boat with all of the daily stress relieved.

      We closed the galley way hatch quietly and stepped over the step that creaks.  We slipped back into our cabin and shut the door softly in an effort to keep the crew asleep.  We both stripped off our cloths and slipped under the sheets.  I searched her tummy for my next son.  After failing, I wiggled my finger into her belly button.

      “Ding-Dong!…  Hey!  You in there?”

      She pulled my hand onto her breast, and put her hand on top of mine.

“SShhhhhh. Go to sleep.”
