Dance with Gina: the Foxtrot  2.7/5 (6)

Dance with Gina: The Foxtrot
Part 3 of 3
By Kerik Karksey

This story is the third of three about the same events, each told from the viewpoint of one of the three participants. This third perspective is that of Gina, narrated to both her husband, Andy, and her new lover, Kerik. The time was early 80’s.

Frequently, a sequel works as a stand-alone story. This is not one of those. If you haven’t read the prequels, “Dance with Gina: The Twist” and “Dance with Gina: The Texas Two-Step”, this story won’t make sense. Please read them first.


Hi, it’s me, Gina Galt.

I just got off the phone with my husband Andy.

He’s at work and his call woke me up.

I needed my rest after last night.

They wore me out.

He wanted me to make a CD too.

I’m not sure how to work the CD thing, but I know how to work the camcorder.

I put it on the tripod so I can move it around.

Right now, I’m in our bedroom.

I’m sitting on our loveseat.

So this is my sort of like a CD, except you can see me too.

Just for fun, if you know what I mean, I’m naked.

I probably didn’t need to say that.

You can see.

I guess it’s fair for all three of us to make one, but mine will be different.

I mean besides me being naked.

I don’t want to convince anybody about anything.

Or intimidate anybody.

In fact, I don’t want to hurt any feelings at all but that’s probably not going to happen.

Maybe while I talk, I’ll figure some things out for myself.

No, probably not.

It’s just too confusing.

Andy wants me to talk about everything that happened and how I feel about it.

I will talk about what happened, but I’m not going to talk about my feelings.

For sure somebody would get their feelings hurt if I did.

Probably me.

So I’m just going to tell what I remember.

And I’m not going to talk to either of them – I’ll talk to myself, sort of like writing in a diary.

… hmmm

… that sounds funny

… just talking to myself

    I really enjoyed the 3part story. Debating if I should call the phone number in the story. I lived in the Dallas area long ago and worked in Irving…to bad I still don’t

    Please email me I’d like to know if the phone number is the author or “Gina”

    Thanks again for a great story!
