A Strangers Hands – A Short Paragraph Story

Waiting on the bed in an unfamiliar room, clothes draped on the chair, I thought again about the decision that had brought me here.  It was so unlike me (or the me of recent years) to do this, had I made a mistake?  Did I give in too easily to the suggestion?  Perhaps I should have waited longer, tried to find another way to ease the hurt.  Could a strangers hands really give me release from this pain I carried with me?  Well, I had paid for an hour, no sense in wasting the money without sampling the goods.  Their touch is part pleasure, part pain, but I endure it because sometimes you just have to resort to a remedial massage to fix your neck!

      Wonderful thanks for your kind compliment. I had to be a little reserved in the leadup to this one as my Mum follows my blog, but I think it worked OK.

        Mostly is a pretty good average for this one, I rather think 🙂

        It worked REALLY well …. I prepared, briefly to blush and then you gracefully intervened with the actual need for hands on your body!

    I had all these scenarios running through my head whilst reading this…I was WAY off.
    Love the twist at the end.

      Oh Lily, please do tell me what nefarious thoughts you were having 🙂 I know what I was trying to make people think, but did it work? 🙂 😉

        My thoughts were nothing too lascivious (for once) or nefarious. Maybe a midnight tryst with an illicit paramour…okay, my thoughts were lascivious and nefarious…

    My neck is a wreck – that could be the start of a poem! (my neck really is a wreck). Was your post just for a fun piece of writing or did you really get your neck manipulated? 🙂

        Think I might try again – maybe a different chiropractor this time! 😵

          Just had my second visit yesterday, she is very gentle and has a “clicky” thing that she uses and doesn’t crack you as some do. It seems to being doing a good job on me.

      You are kind to say so. I have a few others like this, I like the concept of short and sweet, and the twist I work into them.

      It’s pretty good and seems to do the trick. I aske dher how it works and she said it is a just a much faster version of what they do with hands – expanding the space between wherever the sore bit is. All I hear is a click, and a teensy little flick on the skin (or do I only think i feel that when I hear the click?)
