Susan and her family moved to the city and instantly fell in love with the friendly neighborhood. She was liked by anyone who met her and in particular the men found her overly attractive and sexy. Sue married young and virtually had no sexual experiences other than those with her childhood sweetheart, Ben, who she married. They didn’t have any children and anyone who met Ben and Susan considered her a trophy wife, as she was extremely beautiful and sexy. She dressed in a very conservative manner, but always in rich and elegant clothes, which were trendy and very fashionable.
Every fall about the end of September, one of their neighbors hosted a block party barbeque, which was designed to welcome newcomers and also to rekindle friendships. The function was always well attended, as it was the one time a year that everyone could socialize with neighbors. The Clarks who lived only a couple doors down the block from Susan were the hosts. The family was well known for their gracious parties and Sue looked forward to meeting all of her neighbors, some of them for the first time.
Nadine Clark had just turned 21 and she was an only child, which was most likely the reason for her being spoiled rotten. No one could argue the fact that Nadine was overly dominating. She loved being the one in control of everything and considered herself the leader in almost every endeavor. The fact Nadine was a little shorter than average and a little smaller might have been a determining factor of her having a inferior attitude. When her friends assumed Nadine was not capable of being powerful and in control, she always proved them wrong by being the strongest and most feared.
Her parents thought Nadine could do no wrong and they were happy to still have her living at home. They were extremely proud of their daughter and ignored any warning signs that she might be overly domineering. When Nadine set her sights on something, she didn’t let anything get in her way of achieving a goal or winning a competition. Her smaller stature deceived most people and she was in complete control before anyone knew what happened. Most of her personal relationships were with people about her own age, but she secretly vowed to some day have an intimate relationship with an older woman.
Nadine would look back on the planned neighborhood gathering with great fondness even though at first she wanted nothing to do with the party. She thought her parents were silly for volunteering to be hosts for the annual social event and she refused to help in any way. What made her change her mind might have been a fluke, but Nadine would always consider it one of her luckiest changes of heart. After her mother pestered her for the whole month of July, Nadine finally agreed to help with the September party.
The two were having coffee together one morning before Nadine went to college or her mother went to work. “Mother, I’ll help with the damn party… just get off my back,” Nadine complained. “You shouldn’t have volunteered to host the bloody thing. It’s a lot of goddamn work and you know how much I hate work.”
“You know your dad… how he thinks he’s the best Barbequer in the world,” her mother replied. “It will be nice having all of the neighbors around.”
“I’ll help with arrangements… with everything until the actual party,” Nadine said. “But I’m not socializing with a bunch of old farts.”
“It will do you good to be nice to the neighbors. Pay some of them back for being nice to the spoiled princess,” her mother teased Nadine. “You just have to help with all of the arrangements and setup… not with the actual day of the party.”
