Adult #Humour: The Girl at the Bus-Stop
by Sam Aubigny
When a wannabe sci-fi author receives his 1000th rejection letter, how can he possibly recover? Easily, by getting drunk and writing a best-selling sex novel.
Middle-aged clerk, Reuben Rudge has been writing sci-fi novels for years and getting nowhere. His latest rejection letter is the last straw, so he gets drunk in front of the TV and watches a late night documentary about BDSM. In the morning he wakes up naked on the floor, with a manuscript to post.
He receives a letter from a publisher addressed to, Ms Raspberry Caine, inviting her to contract talks for her debut BDSM novel Disciplinary Attraction. After finding the manuscript on his laptop Rudge is shocked by its content, and even more so when he realises that he’s written it.
Fearing a lack of credibility he persuades young Becky, a complete stranger at his bus stop, to stand-in for him as Ms Raspberry Caine at the publisher’s offices.
The contract is signed and the novel quickly becomes a bestseller. Rudge lies to his wife about a new job he has in London, and employs Becky full-time as Raspberry Caine. She bluffs her way through the book launch party and a succession of kinky masked balls and functions hosted by celebrities and the ‘arty-farty’ glitterati.
Rudge is under pressure to write a sequel, but has no ideas whatsoever. Becky steps-in to help by documenting the scandalous sexploits of her famous new celebrity friends, but forgets to change their real names in the manuscript.
Will a scandal unfold in the over-protected sordid world of celebrity? Will Mrs Rudge find out about her husband’s secret life?
