When John first saw Pauline, he knew he had to have her.

Like all successful suitors, he studied his next conquest carefully, never letting on to the extent of his fascination. After all, it wouldn’t do to tip his hand too early. The last thing he wanted was to have her spurn him out of fear of the unknown.

Within a week, John knew everything that Pauline did and everywhere she went. By the second week he was able to beat her to all her appointments. By week three Pauline began to notice John as he slowly turned on the charm, making his play.

It was the longest John had ever chased a woman but he knew she would be worth it. She had beautiful, shapely legs, and long arms ending in delicate fingers. He could hardly wait to touch her.

Within the month, John was in heaven. Not only was Pauline intrigued enough to start up a friendship, but she had agreed to come over for dinner! John’s dreams had come true. Supper was fabulous–the best meal he ever had. Pauline was as delicious as he expected her to be.

Mike Aragona, former Line Editor of Scarlet Rose Productions, is currently running Comicopia The Comics Fanzine (celebrating 15 years of publication in 2005) and has been a panelist on numerous media conventions speaking on Writing, Self-publishing, and Apas. A big fan and supporter of Canadian talent, he was on the nominating panel for the Canadian Comic Book Creator Awards–The Shusters–and continues to plot ways of bringing his creator-owned work (The Mysterious Minute-Men) to the world at large. Mike and his beautiful wife Chantale welcomed their first child in July 2005. He hopes the baby, Kyle Ethan, will also become a comic fan like his son James and daughter Melyssa. Casey the Wonder Puppy could not be reached for comment.

Canville Virtual Village
Under Reconstruction...
There was a time when the streets were alive with the sounds of children playing, friends gathering, and adults conversing. When the heat of summer met its match in an ice cream bar delivered by the friendly chap in the neighborhood ice cream truck. Or, a rubbery hose would refresh children with the spraying of water into the air. Oh, how times have changed. Where go the little children now? Where now gather the teens? Where chatter away the adults all afternoon? And, alas, what has become of the lonesome ice cream man?

In today’s fast-paced world, where many suffer from information overload, we offer a retreat from the headaches of the computerized world in our own Suburbs of the Information Superhighway, Canville Virtual Village. Click here to visit the site.
