It’s lust at first sight when Mac sees Jason shirtless and sweating on the back of a truck. Jason is the army sergeant assigned to support the six‐week scientific expedition that Mac is participating in, and might just be the perfect candidate for another journey of discovery that Mac is desperate to undertake — sex.
Fraternisation between students and staff might be strictly prohibited, but everybody knows fruit always tastes better when it’s forbidden.
Okay, so this short story was never intended to win The Booker but it was just what I fancied reading yesterday morning. What I liked best:
– How the expedition forced Mac to realise that she’s allowed her personality to limit her…
How have I become an ‘okay-achiever’ with no confidence?
– And how her relationship with Jason made her more comfortable with her body shape.
– That the story was sexy, but not just an excuse for those scenes. 🙂
