“We’re all humans, after all, and everybody’s got something a little off somewhere.”

Megan slipped gently out of bed leaving Joyce fast asleep still nestled on her side. She pulled on her clothes and just barely resisted the urge to kiss her sleeping lover’s cheek. She padded down the hall and peeked into Tommy’s room where he sprawled on his back, snoring lustily. She tiptoed in to lift the covers up to his neck disturbing him not at all.

At the front door she slipped on her sneakers and set the alarm with a three-tone signal giving her twenty seconds to get out. The time on the keypad was 3:37. Pulling the door silently behind her she stepped out into the foggy predawn for the short walk home.

Too early for the morning birds, an owl hooted forlornly over in the woods somewhere. Still tasting Joyce, Megan glided rather than walked, a light tiptoed gait, like wading in neck deep water propelled by the waves of the evening’s passions. It felt as if years of dreamy fantasies and childhood passions had been consummated save for the thick rustling spot that gnawed at her from right behind the drawstring of her sweatpants.  Like any committed dreamer, her fantasies were many, familiar and always available. If she knew nothing else, she knew how to deal with this titillating ache. She paused at the corner, the fog settling shiny on her skin, to watch three deer-mere shadows in the amber glow of the streetlights-clatter down the asphalt before being swallowed by the night.

She let herself in through the garage and went straight for the powder room stopping only to strip off her sweats and panties, dropping them in the laundry basket. She moved to pull her T-shirt over her head but it smelled of Joyce, so she kept it on. In the powder room she peed then, without turning on a light, went to the kitchen for a glass of water from the tap. She could get ice water directly from a nozzle on the fridge, but it was too slow and Megan, gulping, was suddenly in a hurry to get upstairs.

She ducked into the bathroom at the top of the stairs and snatched the bath brush from the hook in the shower. Almost unable to wait she patted her backside with the cool flat wood to hurry herself along. In her bedroom she plopped face first onto the small mountain of pillows, sheets and blankets that passed for a made bed in these times. Lifting slightly onto her side she gritted her teeth and scrunched her eyes then raised the brush high and brought it down with a loud CRACK in the center of her right bottom cheek. “Yeeowch!” she said lightly, surprising herself with how hard it was. She did it again and a third time in the same spot causing her to wriggle a bit and yip a small “Ouch!”

She grabbed a pillow and stuck it between her legs, squeezing it into place after sliding her fingers over her own swollen wetness moaning at the charge the smallest contact brought. The pillow placed, she rolled onto her belly and swatted her left cheek once then again, rhythmically humping the pillow between swats. All corners of the empty house bore audible witness to what was happening in Megan’s bed. She yelped, then sighed as the spanking waxed and waned and grunted when she directed hard contact to the midpoint of her bottom where her legs joined to form and echo chamber that magnified the force and vibration of the blows. After absorbing a stronger punishment than anyone else had given her, she tossed the brush aside and slipped her fingers into herself.

She moaned loudly as she tickled her attentive clit up to the edge then over. She cried Joyce’s name as she came loudly with complete abandon; a long rapturous orgasm that she knew would set an impossible standard for the one that she shared with Joyce. She didn’t break contact, still rubbing, riding down the backside of the mountain until she collapsed on the bed and breathed, smiling, still smelling the scent of another on her face. She gently slid her hand over the hot, dry skin of her tortured bottom. She mewled at the contact and slowly slipped her moist fingers back between her legs, determined to make the second one last.

Why Bud’s a Boob Man

In this one, Bud tells how he became a boob man. He wasn’t telling it to me; I’d heard the story countless times already, usually like now, a couple of drinks in. I was watching the Three Stooges with the sound down at the end of the bar. The boys were plumbers and I was waiting for the part when Larry, digging under the yard sticks his head up through the sod, looks around in that haggard Larry way, and seeing where he is, pulls it back down like a startled turtle. The way his hat got stuck above ground and he reaches up and pulls it down always cracks me up. So I was waiting for it when Bud says something to Dot on the other side of him that I missed but then he goes, “…like the time I got hit in the head by that mannequin tit.” Shit, I hadn’t heard it coming.  Had to turn away from the set. “Tell the story”, Dot says leaning back to open the story way to the woman on her right.  “Tell, it. You and Prichard…” She’d heard this story a few times too.  “Jim Prichard and I were shoppin’…” he starts right in. “I was what? Twelve? Waiting for Sheryll to get her picture taken at Murphy’s…with Santa Claus. And Prichard, you remember Prichard?” It was a nice touch, but nobody ever did. I mean ever. Poor Prichard had to be the most forgettable fucker you’d ever not meet. “Anyway, Prichard and I, we were over around the counter and Prichard says, “Hey, think we can lift this up? It was a mannequin. Not the whole body thing…just from here” puts his hand to the top of Dot’s thigh like a freeze-frame karate chop, “to the top of the head.  A pretty redhead, as I recall. So me and Prichard we went over and lift it-it wasn’t that heavy-but when we set it back down…the damn mannequin was sittin’ on one of these pedestals-not too stable- and the damn thing went….Whoooop! It falls over and the tit hit me right on top of the head.” “DOINK!” Dot laughed. “Doink, my ass”, says Bud. “It knocked me flat, until I saw that floor manager runnin’ my way and I got up and took off. Dizzier n’ hell with a goozle on top of my head for days.” “He goes crazy over boobs now”, Dot says to the woman to her right. I honestly doubted the cause and effect of the whole deal, but it wasn’t my story.

Lover’s Song

The lover’s song hoped to chronical the sad, continuing struggle to find someone who could make it all seem right. In the pictures all the men looked like thumbs, big and vacant, hats at a jaunty tilt. Rich girls with backyard fences, angels coupled with sailors and airmen. Dreams watch each other warily, not wanting to draw first. Soft luxuriant curs loll in the faded light. Girls and drivers tricked out to get liquor and better clothes. Half gallons of sweet wine, six packs of beer and jeans that rode low.  Jump humped, born to suffer, made to undress in the wilderness.

He threw on the businessman’s Stetson that belonged to his grandfather, a renown liar, and sang:

“I will never treat you mean,

Never start no kind of scene

I will tell you every place and every person I’ve been

I will always be true,

Never go sneaking out on you…”

It was easier to lie when he sang. But he wouldn’t let it bother him because he knew beyond doubt that she would kill him.

Eventually.

Plague Life, Part VI

Continued from Plague Life – Part V

“There”, Joyce thought. “I did it.” As if the act to come, whatever it would be, was secondary to her asking for it. She had been afraid she would chicken out.  She’d done it before, with Melissa in college. She hadn’t strung her along exactly, but it could have looked that way. She had wanted Melissa then, just as she wanted Megan now. She had just…chickened out, after some kissing and with Mel’s hand up her skirt sliding down her panties. She had been wet then too. She knew it and Melissa knew it and called her on it later. What had she been afraid of? Whatever it was, she was still afraid of it, but not as much.

Since she had flashed Megan in the garage that night, this-this right now-had been a joke, a flirt maybe, then a fantasy, then a plan. It had taken awhile for Joyce to say it, to give herself over to another with “Do what you want.” And after all the planning, dreaming and fantasizing over the last couple of weeks, she might not have. Might not have said a thing had not Megan allowed her finger to slide between her legs, to discover the same dampness, the same want, the same lust that Melissa had found there years before.

Megan, standing naked beside the bed, wasn’t the kid who babysat anymore. Not even close. Her smile and eager glistening eyes could have kept her attention if not for her small pert breasts, flat stomach and cute little bush that was obviously trimmed. For the occasion? When she bade her turn, she found her bottom full and firm, taut to the touch. “There”, thought Joyce, when Megan snapped the light off.

She lay in the warm darkness having decided to be pliant to…whatever. She had asked Megan to turn and she’d turned. She knew the girl would defer to her, to do whatever she asked. But she had nothing to ask. Not knowing what was coming added a sheen of anticipation she hadn’t felt in years.

The bed shifted as Megan knelt beside her and again as the girl stretched out atop her, breasts pressing into her back and her bush tickling her backside. She allowed her arms to be pulled out to her sides by the wrists and held there, crucified. With her knees Megan pulled Joyce’s legs together and covered them with hers, slowly grinding her pelvis into Joyce’s bottom. She liked being covered but wished for a moment that she was pinned-that she couldn’t move at all.

She let a small sound escape her lips, and Megan answered with a nibble to the back of her neck, still undulating slowly. Megan could taste the goose bumps rising on Joyce’s back and shoulders. She moved down slowly and slipped her knees between her lover’s legs, a wedge opening them. Joyce flowed into the movement, opening and pushing back accepting first her thrusting pelvis then, a leg straddled, Megan’s thigh rubbing firmly into her pussy.

“Oh, God…” Joyce whispered and Megan, as she had with the massage, followed the direction mapped by the sounds. She released Joyce’s wrist and slid her hand enchantingly slowly along her arm, across her shoulder, down her back, across her bum then between her legs. Sliding her own thigh out of the way, Megan slipped a finger easily into Joyce’s wet quim. The move was answered with a soft gasp and a backward thrust giving her the permission to probe deeper and explore freely. One finger, then two then one inside and one rubbing the top. Then a slight withdrawal.

“Roll over.”

When Joyce rolled onto her back, Megan lay beside her, letting her head fall mouth first onto her breasts. She licked first one, then the other, slowly circling the nipples while continuing to slide her finger in and out slowly, keeping a rhythm that Joyce was catching. Abandoning her breasts, Megan slipped her mouth, tongue first down the woman’s stomach, heading for…

“Wait! Wait!” Joyce said breathlessly grabbing Megan’s head.

“What?”

“Ah…” Joyce couldn’t exactly answer as she struggled to sit up.

“What’s the matter?”

“Your fingers are…wonderful. It feels great. You can keep doing that…”

“This?” Megan teased, flicking her finger against Joyce’s obvious and pulsing clit.

“Yeah! Yeah…that’s great. You…you don’t have to go down on me. This is good.” She didn’t believe it even as she said it. She was going to chicken out again. Late in the game this time, but still.

“Good for you maybe.” Megan kept her fingertip on the hard, little nub.  “I want you in my mouth. I want to taste you, lick you, flick you, nibble you and stick my tongue up inside of you. I want to squeeze your bum and have your thighs crush my ears till I can’t hear. I want to fucking swallow you. Now”, she pushed at Joyce’s belly with her head like an insistent kitten, “You lay back down and let me do this.”

“Yes. Yes…it’s just that…” Not to be denied, Megan kept pushing with the crown of her head. “OK…ok…” Joyce said breathlessly. She lay back down happy to have been overruled.

Megan led with her tongue down Joyce’s belly, pausing childishly to probe her deep innie, then through the thicket of soft brush to her moist destination. She pulled her finger then, replacing it with her prodding tongue as Joyce moaned and arched her back.

This wasn’t something Megan did every day. Joyce was the third woman she’d gone down on but that made her the most experienced one in the bed. Joyce made it easy. She pulled back her legs and Megan, kissing the inside of her thighs, let then right, then, true to her words, slipped her hands under to cup her bottom, kneading her cheeks as she plunged her tongue into her.

Megan wished there were lights. She was feeling everything. She was tasting everything, and Joyce’s taste was glorious! Megan closed her mouth over her lover’s pussy, sopping as much with her own as with Joyce’s juices. She felt the wetness on her cheeks and chin and loved the rough feel of hair in her mouth and the buzzing clit on her tongue as Joyce’s breath caught and caught again.

She wanted her on an exam table with bright fluorescents overhead to document every crease, fold and freckle, to see the inside of her legs, see the pulsing of the blood and the tweaking of the tendons. Her thumb had slid over Joyce’s asshole and she wanted to see that. And her ass…

“Megan!” It was a ragged whisper. “I’m going to….”

Megan paused a moment, long enough to cough, “Do it!” before diving back into the wet. She felt a shift and heard a flop-Joyce pulled a pillow over her face-then a muffled squeal. The woman arched higher and Megan squeezed the rock hard apples that was her bottom, holding on as Joyce bucked into her, a wave cresting, then crashed with a single spasm back onto the bed with a cough that almost sounded like a sob.

Megan fell with her and pulled her tongue back, breathing for the first time in what seemed to be a long while. She kissed Joyce’s soft inner thighs and slid upwards pushing a little to get Joyce onto her side. She spooned her then, tossing her arm over her shoulder to rest comfortably on her breast, her glistening cheek on her shoulder.

“You okay?” Megan asked lightly next to her ear.

Joyce reached up and squeezed her forearm. “I am SO okay…”

Megan snuggled. “Good”, she said. “Me too.”

“Thanks for not letting me stop you back there…”

“No way I wasn’t going down there.”

“I don’t know why I….”

“Shhh…doesn’t matter now, does it?”

“How’d you get to be so smart?” Joyce asked.

“I’m not. You’re just dumb”, she teased.

Joyce pinched her forearm lightly. “Brat.”

Megan’s heart skipped at that word. She might have said something, but Joyce’s settled breathing put her off. It was the end of a wonderful evening, not time to start something new.
