This is a short uber fic that has Nikki recently separated from her partner of seven years, Tracy, meeting up with an old high school classmate, Helen. Helen has recently lost her husband and has a 4 year old son. They get reacquainted and find that there’s a sexual spark between them.
The writing isn’t particularly spectacular and there are some typos but there’s something about this story that I really enjoy. I’ve read it several times and always have a smile on my face. I’m certain that Helen’s character is what does it for me in this one. She’s very straightforward and knows exactly what it is that she wants. Really, very different from the television character but I don’t care. I like this story. A lot.
