Ah, the French; they are
The world's most complex athletes
They defeat themselves

(Player Nicholas Anelka to Coach Raymond Domenech at half-time: "Go f--- yourself,  you dirty son of a whore.")

Matt & Mariko - A Serialized Novel - 6.13


Chapters 1-14: http://bit.ly/bP2JR8

     Mariko kneeled on the bed, looking out over the freeway as the two streams of colors  – yellow headlights going north, red taillights south – moved like two lava flows in opposite directions as the sky turned dark.
     Matt moved behind her, brushing her hair away from her neck and kissing her where the white silk of her collar touched her skin. He reached around to unbutton her blouse and rubbed her breasts.
     "Mmmmm," she said. "You're in the mood?"
     "Like you said," he answered, thinking about the Chinese finger-trap. "Maybe I need to relax."
    "It's an idea worth considering."
     She turned and kissed him on the mouth, then lay back on the bed. He pulled the rest of her clothes off and massaged her feet, watching her body glow in the fading orange light of sunset that filtered through the tinted window. He kissed her, caressed her and licked her from bottom to top, then turned her over and moved from top to bottom. Then he lay on his back and pulled her on top of him. They made love. When it was over, she stayed in place, her thighs resting on his hips, her head on his shoulder.
     "I hope your theory worked," he said.
     "What theory?"
     "The finger-trap."
     "I'm pretty relaxed now."
     "Works for me.”

    Mariko got out of the shower and put on the white terry cloth hotel bathrobe.  She was drying her hair with a white towel when she came from the bathroom. Matt was standing by the window looking at the jewel box.

Matt & Mariko - A Serialized Novel - 6.6


Chapters 1-13: http://bit.ly/bP2JR8

     Driving south from the test site under wisps of white clouds floating high in the sky, Matt didn't know if the hint he'd got from Phillipe would be enough for Ashton.
     "I'm not sure this gets me in the clear," he told Mariko.
     "You'll have to tell him it's all you can get for now," she said.
     "But I know what he'll say. He'll want to be sure. He'll want more."
     "Well, you've anticipated his response. That's good. Now you can prepare yours."
     "That's the problem. I don't know how. It's like one of those Chinese finger traps. The more I struggle with it, the worse this all seems."
     Mariko thought for a moment.
     "You've found your answer again."

I'm spewing into the Gulf
You see me from space!
