I jumped out of the car and walked behind it smiling at the
guys in the next car as I shook my head. I spun Lisa around and
pushed her against the car. I put my face about 12″ from hers.

        “STOP! If you would just shut up and listen to me, you
would see that there is a bigger picture involved here! I have no
intention of leaving you here in Costa Rica. I want to help you
get your business started and then we can sail all over the world
getting new ideas for fashion as we go. You can email your designs
back to Costa Rica and we just keep on going. We can travel, I can
write my next book, and we can live happily ever after! GET IT?”

        “Ever after?” as she calmed down.

       The day of the opening Lisa was a wreck.  She was nervous and often exploded in anger at me.  Loren would drag me from the room and explain that; “Lisa is always like this when she gets stressed.  She will be okay after a few sales.” She assured me.

      We opened the doors at 8:00 and didn’t have a single customer show up until 10:30.  I explained to her that people run a little different schedule in #Florida and maybe we could adjust the hours once we see a pattern.

     Lisa immediately became a gracious host and welcomed all of her new customers.  As they left with their purchases, I passed out discount coupons for their next visit, in an attempt to establish return customers.  Loren roamed the shop, assisted, and advised.  People had to only look at her appearance to know they could trust her opinion.  It seemed to be working and the money was coming in.

      One thing I had not compensated for was three #CostaRican women in my little Florida house. I decided that while momma was here, Lisa and I would sleep on the boat.  The marina was only about ten minutes up the road, and the boat had two bathrooms, too.  With the tension that Lisa was bringing home every night, she needed mental, and physical, relief.  I made sure that her tension level remained under control.  If she was in melt down mode, we motored out into the #Intracoastal Waterway and went south to one of the little sandbar islands.  We could play on the #island and the #beaches until she was exhausted, and then sleep in air-conditioned luxury in the Saborio.

Getting struck by lightning! Same odds of these lovers getting together. Romance, Murder, Family,

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

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.”

Excerpt from Amaretto with Coffee

Page 129

At sunrise Daniel and I were airborne to Costa Rica. I carried my disposable phone and my regular phone, in my laptop case. It was on my left shoulder, and the baby stuff in a bag on the other shoulder, with Daniel in my arms. We hit the tarmac in Limon by 3AM and I called Loren on my regular phone to pick us up.

She was confused, and wanted to know where Lisa was, and I convinced her to wait until we get to the house and get Daniel to bed.

Daniel went right to sleep, and we all sat at the kitchen table as I told the story. The crying was intense as I told them that I need them to be strong. Loren was immediately in, because this man that I wanted to erase was the same man that kidnapped and beat her years ago. Momma was a bit reserved, but agreed when she realized that Lisa had been kidnapped, and raped when she was young and then years later murdered by this man. I flipped open my laptop and hooked it into Loren’s Router. We clicked onto the live camera and the Uncle Tom appeared in Real Time on my screen. I laid the disposable phone on the table and explained that this will ignite that! as I pointed to the freighter.

“We just want him! So we have to wait until he goes to bed” I explained.

“I have a man working for me as we speak. When the phone rings and stops, we are ready to go. So for now we just wait.” I walked into the living room as Momma and Loren stared at the screen.

When the phone rang… RRRRING….. RRRRING… and then stopped, I knew Michigan was on the plane and everything was ready.

The screen showed it getting dark in Florida, and I couldn’t call the other phone until Captain Raymond goes to bed. We watched the monitor as we saw people leaving the boat and the Captain turning off the lights. He stayed in his room until late watching TV and finally got up and went into the bathroom, turned off the lights and went to bed.

We all looked at each other and I started dialing the number on my key pad. I hesitated at the last number and waited………. as I looked into their eyes.

“What’s the last number?” asked Loren.


She reached across the table and pushed 7.

Nothing happened for a few minutes and as I started to get worried, his cabin glowed like the sun from inside it. The camera went to static as it couldn’t handle the intense light. We stared at the computer screen as it finally came back on, to show the center of the metal roof melted into a hole above Raymond’s Cabin. As the intense light faded to flickering flames, the entire ship exploded and the flames danced on the water as the surrounding boats moved away to a safe distance.
