THE HEALING TOUCH
Jake needs the healing touch of a good woman but he hates to be touched since spending time in a terrorist prison. The unspeakable horrors he suffered torment him, especially at night, when the nightmare returns in vivid detail. He sleeps with the doors and windows open to the outdoors or better yet, when he can, out in the open. He rides a motorcycle and flaunts public disdain so as not to let anyone get close. The woman who finally gets to him is sent to try to get him to come in to the authorities for de-briefing about his imprisonment. As she slowly uncovers the reasons behind his reluctance to talk or be touched, she also discovers the torment in his soul. She then is caught between her "job" and her growing attraction to Jake. This story is one of the most original I have ever read and it's on my keeper shelf.
