All my posh friends flock to the Fancy Dress Ball, attracted by whispered rumors.

“The thief looks like a Greek God!”
“Penetrating blue eyes.”
“Black curls.”
“Steals your jewels, you just smile – he’s that gorgeous!”
“Hope he takes that monstrosity Lucien gave me Christmas last. Atrocious taste, my husband.”

Everyone wears their most ostentatious treasures, hoping to attract their new hero.
By the end of the evening, ladies are showing off bare arms and necks, bragging, and Rob is flummoxed.

“Gorgeous Greek Gods everywhere, Sylvie.”
“Including you, detective,” I observe.

Everyone’s happy except my darling Rob. I must make amends.

Poor Rob must be feeling very put out! I look forward to seeing what Sylvie comes up with next!

Hello, Fuji. Rob is so pathetic. He is not happy. Your story about Sylvie is very addictive. Every part makes me want more. I can’t wait for the next part, Fuji.

Strange, that the moneyed crowd wanted their jewellery stolen based on a rumour that the thief was exceptionally handsome.
Your story is hilarious. I particularly liked the line where one female wanted her jewels stolen because her husband had terrible taste in purchasing it.

Of course, Rob is confused with the ladies being attracted to the handsome “thief” and willing to be robbed. (Is “Rob” – “to rob” a conscious play on words?)
I am a bit confused too, when Rob is talking about “Gods.” Is there more than one handsome young man playing with the hearts of the women at the ball?
I love Sylvie’s comment! “Including you, detective.” That should make him smile and feel happy with himself. What a wonderful way to “coquetear,” as the latinos say!

This made me chuckle. I can just imagine Rob’s face, looking at the ‘greek gods everywhere’. Off to part 5!

I have throughly enjoyed these stories. Your writing paints such vivid pictures! “Steals your jewels, you just smile – he’s that gorgeous.” I can absolutely see this scene in my mind. Love reading your submissions!!!

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
