couldn’t repress a delighted tremor: the man was dead handsome, with
darkly sensual European good looks. Also, he had what was to her mind
a perfect sneeze: full-bodied, explosive, and seemingly entirely
convenient, then, that the Wal-Mart training videos had instilled it
in Carly`s mind that customer service was very important. It gave her
a good excuse to approach the sneezy stranger and ask him if she could
help him find anything.
he said with a sniffle. His chocolate-colored eyes looked moist and
red, as though he’d been cutting up onions. “My hay fever is
acting up and I’m looking for some AllergyTamers.” As if to
illustrate his point, he turned to the side and sneezed again, another
with him to the appropriate row of medications and pointed out the
pills he was seeking. She did it, it must be confessed, with regret.
How sad to see such pleasant-sounding sneezes end. Unaware, the young
man picked up a packet and examined it to make sure it was the dosage
he wanted, and then turned to face Carly with a grateful smile.

Carly beamed. “I love it. I play catcher on a women’s softball
team,” she elaborated. “We’re second in our division.”

great stuff.” Then, he looked to the right, as though he was just
getting an idea, before focusing again on Carly. “Hey, do you want
some free tickets to tomorrow night’s Chickadees game?”
I think I’ll just have the one ticket, “ she said, giving his
handsome face another once-over. Then, catching his puzzled look, she
explained: “If we get together after the game, we don’t want a
crowd with us, do we?”
Chad replied. This girl was certainly a fast mover! “Well then,
here’s your ticket.” He pulled one out of his jacket pocket.
“Why don’t you meet me outside the locker room after the game?”
agreed. Then, she heard her team leader calling her on the loudspeaker
and had to report back to him. She said goodbye to Chad and hurried
off, but faintly, in the distance, she heard him sneeze again twice;
“HACHOOOO! A-ACHOOOOO!” like a heartfelt goodbye just for her. She
couldn’t wait to see him again.
night, Carly watched Chad pitch a brilliant three-hitter, helping the
Chickadees win 3-0 against the Toledo Mud Huts. Following the game,
she met him outside the locker room as suggested, and together they
went to a sports bar to discuss plans for a proper date this coming

a game with her softball team at one. Coincidentally, Chad also had a
one o’clock game with his team. For the sake of convenience,
they decided to meet at her house for dinner at six. It would be nice
to relax together, they thought.

see if I can catch your fastball.”

unless you have the right protection. That means besides your
catcher’s gear, you need to wear a cup to protect your… um…
parts?” Carly chuckled. “I thought only guys wore those. I’m not
exactly sure what it is you’ll be wanting to cover.”
was Chad’s turn to laugh. “Okay, okay. I admit it. I’d just be
curious to see what you’d look like with one. Hot, I bet.”

I’ll pick one up for you at Wal-Mart,” he said.
was only after she’d hung up that Carly regretted not asking him if
his hay fever had acted up since she’d last saw him. Damn it. Those
meds must’ve been working.
Saturday night, Chad arrived at Carly’s house at 6PM for dinner and a game of catch afterward. She greeted him excitedly, shouting: “We won our game! We totally creamed the Memphis Mosquitoes. Our pitcher was totally amazing, and I caught everything she threw!”

or not, yours truly hit two home runs.”

for their game of catch. He presented her with the protective cup,
just as he had promised her. Uncertain how it was supposed to go, she

they dried off and then entered Carly’s bedroom – it had become
pretty clear just what kind of “date” this was going to turn out
to be. Chad was certain to score his third home run of the day. Carly
pointed out that the sheets (from Wal-Mart of course) were silk, which
Chad found appealing.

“Where are the tissues? I’m gonna sneeze!”
I’m out of tissues,” Carly said apologetically. She looked around
frantically, but she didn’t seem to have anything for Chad to blow
his nose in. Then, she smiled mischievously.

her and guided his erection into her vagina. He thrust in and out of
her, enjoying her clutching at his buttocks, his breath becoming quite
short by the time he allowed himself to reach orgasm. Apparently his
timing was just right – Carly let out a delighted moan and arched
her hips up to meet his thrust.
Carly pulled Chad toward her and hugged him tightly.
