Another 20 questions

So the second important character has emerged in my story. So, it's time for another session of my new favorite writing game, 20 questions:

  1. How old are you? 55
  2. What do you do? I teach history at the school where Susan's mom works.
  3. What would you prefer to be doing? Not much. I love teaching. The students can drive you crazy but they're really rewarding.
  4. Who do you love? Susan's mom, June. My wife. Paradoxical, I know, but I do love them both. My wife and I have too much of a history for me not to love her. And June was just great. She was interested in the same stuff as me in a way my wife isn't. Reading, history, teaching. And she listened to me in a way my wife hasn't in a long time. Just for the record, June and I never did anything physical. We were just friends who loved each other, if from a distance.
  5. Wait, you want us to believe that? I don't care if you do or not. It's true. We were both married, neither of us wanted to leave our spouses, and that's really what you have to want in order to start an affair. We came awfully close sometimes--her hand would graze mine when handing me a packet of sugar for coffee and it would be hard not to grab onto it and let things progress from there. But we didn't.
  6. Never? Never.

To Be Continued (have to get ready for work now!)

Can't wait to read more. I don't write fiction so I'm interested in the process as much as the product.
