Repost – Ladies - Please help!

Here goes again then… hopefully it’s easier to read now. This is an extract from a much bigger piece, but it stands alone in so far as it has no prequel or follow up. The characters from the larger piece are playing a virtual game together in this "short story" which is loosely based on th...
