An Unexpected Visitor

I met Jane when she was delivering pizza for Gustino’s. We hit it off, started dating and soon decided to make our relationship exclusive. Sharing secrets one night, Jane talked about her fantasy involving delivering pizza to a man who answered the door wearing only a towel. We made a plan and put it in action and on Sunday afternoon at 4:00 I walked to answer the ringing doorbell. Hoping to surprise her beyond our role playing, I left the towel in the shower. With a smile on my face I opened the door.
