By a sheer stroke of bad luck Henry gets caught in a tropical storm whilst he’s swimming in the sea. He sensibly gets out of the water and finds shelter in a beach house, and a few moments later is joined by an equally sodden rain drenched lady.
Felicity is cold and wet and she has nothing dry to wear so she asks Henry to hold her so that they can both benefit from their body warmth until the rain subsides.
The story is set in South East Asia, and culminates in modern day Singapore, but the note above is only the start of a very long story…
The rain had not abated. He looked around and then could see another figure struggling through the rain, and towards where he was standing. As the figure approached Henry realised that it was a female figure wearing a sodden straw hat and a thin gossamer shawl that was also now sodden. He held out a hand to help the woman climb the steps to the verandah, and now he could see that she was wearing only a bikini under her shawl.
“Thanks,” she acknowledged in English, dripping from the rain.
She took off her wet hat and dropped it on the floor. She had wet hair, but the colour was just dark and not really distinguishable being wet. Her transparent shawl clinged to her body and barely covered her so that he could see her dark blue green bikini under the shawl.
She shivered, and took off the shawl looking around her, just holding it in her hand.
“Do you live here?” she asked.
“No,” he replied, “like you I’m sheltering from the rain.”
“But you’re just as wet as me,” she smiled at him.
“I was swimming in the sea when the rain started,” he explained.
“That’s what I was planning to do,” she smiled again, and shivered.
“Don’t you have a towel?” she asked.
Henry pointed to his sodden towel still covering his haversack on the floor, and picked it up to wring it out. He draped the towel over the hand rail just out of the rain.
He looked back at her and could see she still was still wet and shivering. He reached for her hand and they moved together, just touching one another, but she shivered again looking up at him.
