Mister Longarm (Mister Longarms adventures Book 1)
Matching that black leather was a gun belt with a double-action. In the watch pocket in his vest, Longarm carried a. Vail came around to the other side of the desk and seated himself in his comfortable swivel chair. Billy leaned back, the springs under the chair creaking loudly, and paused for a moment, steepling his hands beneath his chin. The boss had a round face, red complexion, and was bald as the proverbial boiled egg. He looked like a man who had spent his life pushing papers around the top of a desk.
In fact, Billy Vail was salty. A former Texas Ranger, he had smelled more than his share of gun smoke. There was not a thing he could ask one of his deputies to do that he would not have been perfectly capable of handling himself. Now Custis Long crossed his legs, folded his hands in his lap, and waited for the boss to say what was on his mind. And before you ask, my reluctance is not that I doubt your abilities. I hope you know better than that by now. Rather, this assignment might take some time, and I hate to give you up for that long.
Longarm grunted. Billy coughed into his fist. He bit the twist off the end and stuck the slim cigar between his teeth. The thing is, I want you to go to Springfield. Contact Jace. See what he wants you to do. He has travel vouchers and whatnot for you. The hansom cab pulled to a stop outside the hotel. Longarm dismounted first then helped Elizabeth to the sidewalk. Longarm handed the man a silver dollar to make sure he would be there when Longarm came back out, then he offered his arm to Elizabeth and squired her inside.
It has been a lovely evening, but our first. The first of many, I hope. Perhaps the next time your troupe plays Denver. Good night now. Playing the gentleman had its advantages, he had found. For one thing it confused a lady to have a man voluntarily do without a wrestling match. And confusing a woman was always a good idea. Moreover, it would intrigue her. And perhaps worry her.
Was there something wrong with her appearance? Did she have a body odor that turned the gentleman away? Longarm would let her stew on that tonight. And the next time she hit Denver, he would be certain to have her for the night. By his calculations, Jessica should be finishing her last performance just about now. If he hurried, he would get to the backstage door at approximately the same time that she was refreshed, dressed, and ready for an evening on the town. While the cab clip-clopped away into the night, Longarm walked up the narrow flagstone path to the front porch. As soon as his footsteps sounded on the boards, the door was flung open and a young woman motioned for him to come inside.

Laughing, she took him by the arm and led him into the parlor. Longarm kissed her again, then took a step backward so he could look at her. And nice she was to look at, too. Janeth Peterson was perhaps in her upper twenties or early thirties—he had never asked—tall, slim, with hair the color of honey. She had sparkling brown eyes, lush full lips, and a healthy swell of breast. She was wearing a silk robe. Longarm reached forward and plucked the bow that tied her robe closed.
And dark vee of pubic hair below a soft, pale bulge of belly. She came into his arms again and reached up to kiss him. Then dropping her arms, she shrugged the robe off her shoulders. The silken material slithered to the floor. Longarm picked her up and carried her to the sofa. He sat, keeping Janeth in his arms, and most thoroughly kissed the lady. I was thinking about you instead of what I was doing up there. He fingered her pussy, and she quickly reacted with a shuddering climax that left her breathless and flushed.
Janeth recovered her breath and shivered, then slid off his lap to kneel on the floor at his feet. And taste it. Peeling his foreskin back, she ran her tongue around and around the red, engorged bulb of the head of his massive dick, then up and down the length of it. Going to, no. I want your body the first time. Janeth stood and took his hand. She pulled him off the couch and led him up a flight of stairs to her bedroom and to the big canopy bed. Talk Now! Time changes in U.

Tickle remains relatively the same in looks, though his hat has a stripe and his arms are normally sized, but can stretch out when needed.
However, he tickles other Mr. Men and Little Misses due to the obvious absence of humans in Dillydale.

Topsy-Turvy originated from a competition run by Roger Hargreaves to find a new Mr Men character and was an idea by Marc Penfold who created Mr Upside Down and a story in which the character lived in a backwards world. The idea did not win the competition but Roger Hargreaves liked the idea so much he wrote to Marc Penfold saying he would use the idea and thus Mr. Topsy-Turvy was born.
Uppity is the 11th book in the Mr. Uppity lives in Bigtown and he is very rich. He is rude to everybody they call him Miserable old Uppity until one day he meets a goblin. When he is rude to the goblin, the goblin shrinks Mr.
