Grace woke up the next morning, wondering if she had dreamt everything. Then she turned on one side and her glance fell on Alfred’s magnificent body. With a jolt she realised it had not been a dream.
She could scarcely believe it had happened the way it had. Something had just clicked inside her last night and her world had been turned upside down in an instant. So much for her determination to take things slow.
It had been the most magical night she could remember from any relationship before. However, it had been a mistake; just like the many such mistakes she had made in the past. Now Alfred would think they were an item, when they weren’t. It would have been bad enough if he had made the first move; seduced her. But she had invited him in, and had made all the running.
Grace knew she had to make the situation clear to him and hope he would understand. The danger was he might think she was no better than Rose. Worse still he could decide to have nothing else to do with her and take his chances with that slut.
Deep in her thoughts Grace lay on her side, facing away from Alfred. She was shaken from her introspection as he moved tight up against her, and it became obvious he was fully awake. There was no doubt what he had in mind.
“Anybody for seconds?” he whispered in her ear as he slid one hand around her waist and upwards.
Grace slapped his hand away and sat up in her bed, pulling the duvet up to cover her modesty. She blushed at the thought of how hypocritical this action must seem to Alfred after their night of unbridled passion. “Stop right there!”

This snippet is about a couple in a Retirement Village, so we are talking seniors/pensioners here. Therefore a sweet romcom, not erotic.
