Sweet Alice. That’s what she was known as back in kindergarten.
Cute Al was what her grade one teachers addressed her as.
For a greater part of her schoolhood, Alice served as a most pleasurable stress buster for all.
All that changed when she tipped thirteen.
In a jiffy she turned from cutesy to voracious man eater.
Rohan was her first prey. The spindly guy with long locks who sat directly opposite her in class would never know what hit him.
Soon to follow were Amit and Mukesh, the former the class topper and the other junior football captain.
The next two months saw almost her entire class falling for her charms, whatever that may be.
By the time she left school, she had turned sixteen though was far from sweet.
Her assets included a bouncy voluptuous figure that had the potential to stop a ten tone truck on its tracks; jet black kohl lined bedroom eyes that held within them the promise of forbidden bliss; and a racy tongue that she used to good effect to entice, entrap and enlist more members to her ever burgeoning fan club.
She now boasted of an endless string of lovers, all snared, consumed and discarded within the span of 24 hours__the maximum retention period being an elephantine one week.
The fact that she had a short fuse only added fuel to the fire and as her infinite admirers would have testified, playing with fire had turned into a combat sport as they all rushed to bake their cakes in her red hot oven.
