“Boy this is the life,” Annette mumbled out loud while slathering her naked body with a generous helping of sun screen! After being cooped up in the city for fifty weeks a year, she had just followed her nose until she had discovered a small hidden lake deep inside the Minnesota-Canadian Boudary Waters area north and west of Duluth! She had pitched her small tent and set up camp three days ago and had as yet not seen another single solitary soul, which was just fine with her as rest and relaxation were just what the doctor had ordered! While her portable radio oozed out some cool jazz on the hot day, her mind began to float as she slipped in a state of semi consciousness, drifting away on the clouds floating through her mind, so she was quite unaware when a stranger walked into her camp and stood silently beside her!
In her groggy state she didn’t quite no why, but Annette got the sense that something was amiss, and after slowly opeing her eyes, she was stunned and terrified to find that a tall thin black man was standing not more than five feet from her! Since all of her clothing was inside of her tent and she had nothing to cover her body with, and in a display of modesty she covered her firm breasts with her arms and in a very shaky voice stammered, “W-who are you and what do you want!?!” “The name’s King, Jeremy King,” he replied with a broad smile, “I just noticed your camp and decided to come over and introduce my self!” “Where did you come from,” she asked nervously!?! “Right over there on the other end of the cove,” he explained, “I just got finished pitching my tent and happened to notice your camp!” “What are you doing here,” she asked, but now a little less afraid than a few seconds ago!?! “Oh, I just thought I’d try a little fishing and maybe some swimming,” he replied, “oh well, I just wanted to say hi, I’ll see ya,” and then he turned around and walked back to his own camp site!” Annette sat upright and watched Jeremy King walking away, and while she was a little bit miffed that he’d barge in on her like that, he seemed like a pleasant enough sort, and since he didn’t seem to be any kind of threat, she lay back down and went to sleep!
She wasn’t sure how much time had passed when she finally awakened, but one thing that was evident was the savory inviting aroma of freshly frying fish! She got to her feet and slipped quietly into the lake for a quick bath, and after drying off and putting on some shorts and a tank top, she wandered over to Jeremy’s camp to see just how many of those fish he caught! “Hi,” she said brightly while coming up behind him, “how goes it!?!” He looked up from his frying pan and with a wide grin replied, “Well, three walleyes in twenty minutes warms the cockles of my heart, please, have seat!” The two of them made small talk for a few minutes as the fish continued frying, until Jeremy asked, “Say, the smell of these fish didn’t bring you over here did it!?!” She covered her face with her hands to cover her laugh and replied, “Wellllll, that might have had something to do with it!” “Here,” he said while handing her a plate of fried walleye and potatos, “I just can’t stand to see a girl starve!”
