Mary Proctor pulled into the driveway of the home she shared with her father, Dr. John Proctor. As she unloaded her new car of the packages she had bought after school, the 16 year old beauty fumbled to get her keys out. Finally, juggling bags, purse and keys, she managed to open the front door and dump her belongings onto the entryway table.
"Finally home," she thought as a chill of joyous anticipation ran through her svelte young body. "Home...." She could not avoid thinking of one year before, when this house really had become hers in a way it had not been before. One year ago, on her 15th birthday, the divorce of her father John and her mother had become final, and Mary had assumed the role of "woman of the house" in a much more open way - at least within these walls!
The decision of John Proctor and his daughter Mary to find a way to be together, without the stifling presence of their wife and mother, was made on the evening of Mary's 14th birthday, when their friends Paul Welch and his daughter Denise, had become incestuous lovers too. John, a prominent surgeon in town, found a divorce lawyer known for excellent results and in their first meeting made it clear that the one and only priority was to get full custody of Mary. The fact that John's wife was having an affair helped, but it was still going to be difficult to make sure that a father would get complete custody of a daughter.
Once the papers were filed, John's wife fought hard, mostly for money, and she and her legal team watched John carefully. Such scrutiny made it much harder for John ad Mary to make love as much as they had become used to in the first year of their incestuous relationship. Both father and daughter were hard pressed to get by on the infrequent fucks that they could manage to get in, but always the dream of being together every night kept their hopes alive.
A turning point was nearly six months later, when the judge in the case ordered John and Mary to appear in his chambers. He wanted to question Mary as to her true intentions about custody. The judge, Mitchell Frazier, was about 50 years old and had been a judge in the Family Law Court for nearly fifteen years. He was a widower and had a daughter, Rae, who was nine. He would later admit to John and Mary that he had noticed something in the way Mary sat beside her father that seemed to mirror his own desires for young Rae. He would describe it as " a fountain of bright hunger welling up inside of him."
Judge Frazier did something after that interview that was clearly not permitted by the rules of the court, but he did not care. He contacted John and asked if they could talk, secretly. When John agreed, the two men met and the judge carefully worked the conversation around to a point where John realized the intent of the judge's questions. John simply asked, "Would you find this talk more fruitful, Judge, if we continued it tomorrow evening, some place truly private, with Mary present?"
Judge Frazier then knew that John understood and was in truth active sexually with Mary. He agreed and suggested that they meet after hours in his chambers at the courthouse. So, the next evening, John took Mary downtown and explained what he thought the judge wanted. "This might be the break we have been looking for, sweetie," John said. "If we can get the judge on our side..."
"Do you think he wants me to do something with him, Dad? Cuz I really don't want to, but if it gets us together..." Mary's voice trailed off.
"No, I don't think so," John said reassuringly. "All he talked about was his 9 year old daughter."
"Nine, huh," Mary said. She looked at her dad with a wicked smile. "Do you wish you had started with me at 9?"
John laughed. "I'm just happy that you and I are together now." Then after a short pause, he added with a grin of his own, "But you were a really cute little 9 year old!"
