Alex berated herself for her carelessness. She couldnít imagine why
she hadnít gotten rid of the scarf and wondered if subconsciously she
had wanted Danielle to find out all along. It had ended their friendship
quickly and irrevocably. Something she did not have the will to do. She
deeply regretted the pain she had caused Danielle, but it was out of her
hands now. The important thing was that Danielle was safe. Somehow Alex
had to move on.
Never one to indulge in self pity, she tried to convince herself this
was for the best and struggled to keep sorrow from engulfing her. If she
focused on what she had lost, the pain would paralyze her. She had to
plan her next move. She couldnít afford to get sloppy. Her mother and
brother would be in danger if she were arrested.
It was time to leave town. Her heart grew heavy as she thought of the
numerous times had she packed up her few belongings and moved on. For
the first time it felt like she was leaving home. Her pain deepened as
she realized that Danielle was the reason for that.
Walking through the cabin, gathering up her scant possessions, proved
to be tortuous. There were memories of Danielle everywhere. Her eyes
fell on the champagne cork on the stand beside the bed. She flashed back
to the surprised expression on Danielle face when the champagne had
sprayed her. The memory of Danielle tore at her heart. Alex carefully
set the cork down and hastily left the room.
She was almost out the door when her cell phone rang, startling her
out of her thoughts. She hesitated answering it, then relented.
"Julian." She expelled a frustrated sigh. This was the last
thing she needed.
"My sources tell me your in New York. I have a job for you to
"I was leaving today. Things are beginning to unravel
here." She forced the emotion she felt from her voice.
"Iím sure you can handle it. What difference will a few days
make?" She grimaced. The idea of remaining at the cabin with her
memories was unbearable.
"What do you want?"
"A van Gogh from the MET."
"Alex laughed sarcastically. "Oh... is that all."
"You can consider it a personal favor." There was a hint of
urgency in his voice.
Alex listened intently, wondering if she might at last have an out.
"Itís not like Iím asking you to break into Fort Knox. This
shouldnít be much of a problem for you."
"Easy for you to say,"
He laughed. "Alex, youíre so resourceful. Iím sure you wonít
let me down. Iíll contact you in a few days."
Unable to leave town and unwilling to return to the cabin, Alex set
up camp in the surrounding woods. When her life was bleakest she found
solace in the forest. The quiet darkness and star filled sky were
usually a comfort to her, but not tonight. She was miserable. She sat by
the fire staring at Danielleís journal. She couldnít summon the will
to read it. Yet she found a curious comfort in holding it close.
If only she hadnít gotten involved in Danielleís life. But she
had, and Danielle was suffering because of it. Had the young woman been
serious about her journal being of no use to her? Did she mean she
wouldnít write anymore? Alex pushed the thought from her mind. It was
too painful. She ran her hands over the spiral design and summoned the
courage to open it. Nervously she flipped to the last entry.
In my mind, there is but one certainty. I want Alex: in my heart,
in my life and in my bed. My attraction for her is utterly
compelling. The desire I feel for her is overpowering. I long for
her touch. I want to feel the heat of her skin beneath my fingers. I
canít stop thinking of what it would be like to feel her body
pressed to mine. I want to climb inside her, feel her arms around
me. The thought that it might never be, leaves me aching, hungry.
Traces of her scent linger in my mind. I dread the time we are
apart. At last I know desire and my misery is exquisite.
When I canít be with her, the night is my solace. In sleep I
have Alex. My unconsciousness thoughts are more than fantasies. They
have the feel of recollections, something between a dream and a
memory. Her arms have never held me like a lover. Her lips have
never kissed mine and yet I hunger for the sensations they would
elicit. When we are together my eyes refuse to leave her. And when
our eyes meet, even fleetingly, it is electric. I know those eyes.
But only in my dreams do I see the need in them, their hunger for
Alex closed her eyes, her soul blanketed in a sorrow from which there
was no escape.
The drive to the cabin seemed endless. Faced with the prospect of
never seeing Alex again, the memories she had of their time together
made her heart ache. Yet her mind refused to discard the vivid images.
As painful as they were, they seemed essential to her very being.
It was inconceivable that only hours ago her life had been filled
with promise and now things were desperately bleak. Danielle feared Alex
was already gone. The thought that she might never see her again was
terrifying. She prayed for a second chance, one more opportunity to
speak with her.
Danielleís heart sank as she pulled into the driveway. Alexís car
was gone. The cabin was dark. She tried the door. It was locked. She
slipped her hand deep into the sleeve of Alexís leather jacket and
broke the glass on the door. Reaching inside, she unlocked it and
entered. The sight of the familiar room filled her with longing. She
went to the bedroom. The closet doors were open and Alexís clothes
Suddenly weak, she sat on the bed. She had never felt so alone in her
life. She was ready to walk out of the room when something on the
bedside table caught her eye. She picked up the champagne cork and
rolled it in her hand, gently she closed her fingers around it.
"Where are you Alex?"
Danielle walked out on the porch and looked out over the water. If
Alex didnít want to be found it was unlikely that she would ever see
her again. She walked toward the lake unsure of what to do next. The
moon light sparkled off the surface of the water, but Danielle never
noticed the beauty before her. She walked along the shore lost in her
The medallion around her neck seemed to pulse against her skin,
bringing her out of her contemplation. As she ran her fingers over the
spiraled surface, her pain became more acute and her eyes filled with
tears. When she tilted her head back to wipe them away, a flicker of
light in the distant woods caught her attention. Mindlessly, she headed
toward it. As she neared, she saw it was a campfire. Her heart began to
race as she moved quietly toward it. She was about twenty feet away when
she saw her, bathed in the glow of the fireís light, her head bowed
down solemnly. Danielle came forward slowly. Her approach was nearly
silent but Alex felt her presence long before she heard her. She turned
to face Danielle. Her face mirrored the anguish she felt.
Even in the dim light Danielle could see her pain, She had never seen
Alex so vulnerable. Danielle stilled, afraid her friend might bolt. Alex
turned back to the fire, struggling to compose herself.
"Alex I need to talk to you..."
She kept her back to Danielle, knowing her face would betray her and
reveal too much.
"Please, you owe me that much." Danielle watched Alexís
shoulders stiffen at her words.
Alex did not respond. It was all she could do to keep her body from
"Did you read my journal?"
Alex looked deep into the fire, as if to draw strength from it. She
nodded. "Iím so sorry. I never meant to hurt you."
"Were you going to leave without saying good-bye?"
"I thought you'd call the police" She swallowed her pain.
"You should have."
Alexís words hurt. "I would never... What reason have I given
you not to trust me? IÖ I lied to protect you. You... read my journal.
You know everything... and I know nothing." Tears slid down her
Alex lower her head in shame. "I donít deserve your
"You saved my life. You... touched my heart. If you care even a
little... youíll stay, give me time to understand... time to
"I... Danielle please... you should leave."
"No, damn it! Tell me what you're thinking! Don't shut me
out." Danielle was frustrated, desperate.
"I canít... Iím sorry... Please believe me... youíll be
better off without me." Her voice was shaky but resolved, for once
in her life she intended to do what was right.
Danielle closed the distance between them and grabbed her wrist,
pulling the taller woman around to face her. "Iím not leaving
until you talk to me."
"Please... let this go." Alex felt the skin of her wrist
tingle from the young womanís touch. She avoided the hypnotic green
eyes that sought her out, fearing she would lose what little control
"No, you mean too much to me! I have to know the truth. I have
to know how you feel."
Alex met her gaze for the first time, reaching deep inside for the
strength to do what she knew was right. "It doesnít matter how I
feel, Iíve done things... things you canít begin to imagine. Iíve
made enemies. People who would get pleasure from hurting you. We canít
be together. Iíve been fooling myself. I canít put you in that kind
of danger." Her voice was firm, final.
Danielle released her wrist and looked down sadly. "Iím never
going to see you again, am I?"
Alex felt the young womanís despair. The last thing she wanted was
to cause her more pain. Her hand reached out to comfort her. "Iím
sorry. Itís best this way." Her fingertips lightly brushed the
smaller womanís arm.
The casual touch ignited a spark inside Danielle. Her body responded
instantly and she knew she could not give Alex up without a fight. There
had to be a way to convince her.
"Your leaving is not best for me!" Danielle clenched
her hands in frustration. "You donít know what youíre throwing
away, for both of us. I canít let you give up on us."
The young womanís words hurt so much that Alex didnít think she
could endure it. She took a shaky step back.
"You donít understand. I have a darkness in me that..."
She paused knowing it was impossible for Danielle to comprehend the
extent of her sins. "Iím no better than the monster that tried to
rape you. Iíve done so many things I..." Her voice cracked with
emotion. "You have to forget me." She looked at her
The pain Danielle saw broke her heart. She met Alexís eyes.
"There is good in you, so much. I see it. I feel it." Her
voice was gentle, but resolute. "Weíre meant to be together. I
donít understand it, but I know in my heart itís true and I think
you do, too."
Danielle slipped the medallion from her neck. "Alex, this isnít
a medallion. Itís a locket. It opens." She placed it in the womanís
palm and gently curled Alexís fingerís around it.
"Think about leaving me for my own good. Think about a life
without me." Alexís eyes welled with tears. She opened her hand
quickly, startled by the medallionís change in temperature. She looked
at the young woman, puzzled.
Danielleís took Alexís hand in her own and pressed her fingers
closed on the medallion. She held Alexís fist in both of her hands.
"Now, think of the time weíve spent together, the moments we
shared. The time at the lake."
Alex inhaled as she felt an energy build within her, surging down her
arm until it passed through her skin into Danielle. For an instant they
were one, it was electric. Danielle released Alexís hand and stepped
back, breathless. Alex stood motionless, trying to understand what had
"Open your hand." Danielle watched as Alex raised her hand,
the medallion in her outstretched palm. It popped open. Alex held it up
in the firelight.
"Thatís my grandmother. And Iím willing to bet the other
woman is your ancestor. The resemblance is amazing."
Alexís hand trembled as she gave the locket back to her. She knew
she had experienced something miraculous, but it didnít change her
situation or the danger she posed to Danielle.
"Danielle, I canít gamble with your life. I wonít."
"Tell me you donít feel anything for me and Iíll
Alex looked away, summoning the courage to lie.
Before she could begin, Danielle interrupted her. "Alex, please
donít do this."
"Iím sorry ... I canít. My past would haunt us, destroy any
chance we might have of a life together."
"This is the biggest mistake of your life. Please give us more
Alex looked away and stepped back, putting more space between them.
Danielle watched her retreat sadly. "Thereís nothing I can say
to change your mind?"
Alex shook her head.
Danielle inhaled deeply. She had never known such despair. "Thatís
"Yes..." Alex responded weakly.
Tears overflowed Danielleís eyes and she turned to walk away. The
medallion tingled in her grasp. She stopped and turned to face Alex. It
was now or never. She could not leave without expressing what was in her
heart. Danielle took a deep breath.
"Alex, I... I love you. You touched something deep inside me.
From the first moment I saw you, I knew you were the only one for
me." Alex remained silent.
"God I wish you could tell me how you feel. I know you care. Iíve
seen it in your eyes... felt it in your touch."
"Danielle, Iím sorry...I donít... feel..." She quickly
averted her eyes, unable to finish the lie.
"You donít feel what... The same? I donít believe you. Why
were you following me the night I was attacked? Why did you return my
journal and the medallion? Why have you stayed?" Danielle tired to
make eye contact. "Alex, why did you save the champagne cork?"
She braced herself for Alexís denial. When it didnít come she
continued. "Can you live the rest of your life wondering what we
might have shared? I canít." She took a nervous breath. "IÖ
Iím drawn to you. I have nearly driven myself crazy with fantasies of
what it would be like to share my life with you... to be with you."
Danielle glanced away shyly. "I... I never felt desire until I
met you... I canít live my life not knowing the feel your lips on
mine. I... I want you to...."
She raised her eyes slowly to meet Alexís. "I need you to kiss
Danielleís heart hammered desperately, fearing both rejection and
acceptance. "Please, one kiss and if you still want me to, Iíll
leave... let you go."
Alex took a step toward Danielle. Her heart ached as she viewed the
anguish and longing in the young womanís eyes. She wanted to take
Danielle in her arms. Her need was so intense it seemed a physical pain.
She reached her hand tentatively toward Danielleís face. Her fingers
lightly brushing the young womanís trembling lips. Alex could not
suppress the urgency pulsing through her. She wanted Danielle,
Danielle placed her right hand behind Alexís neck and sunk the
fingers into the dark silky hair. Alexís body reacted before her mind
could object. Her head bent forward, her lips only inches from the woman
before her. Slowly, Danielle pulled her in. When their lips touched,
Danielle moaned, her entire being tingled with sensation. Her mind and
body reeled. Suspended out of time and space, there was only she and
She pressed into the kiss and shivered as Alexís tongue slipped
past her lips. She felt Alex tremble as her body succumbed to her need.
The powerful woman melted in her arms, all resistance gone. The moment
Alexís strong hands gripped Danielleís waist, pulling her in.
Their bodies pressed together in a fevered union. The heat was searing,
their kiss endless.
Danielleís body came alive. She ground her hips sensually against
Alex. The dark-haired woman moaned and broke the kiss, her eyes
searching Danielleís. The love and need she saw there were dizzying.
She closed her eyes, struggling to regain control. Her body thrummed
with desire, making rational thought impossible. She didnít have the
will to fight it. Nothing in her life had ever felt so right.
Danielle whispered breathlessly. "Donít stop, please... let it
happen." Her eyes pleaded, but Alex never saw the urgency there.
She was focused on Danielleís full lips. She had tasted their
sweetness, and she was lost. Alex swept the young woman up in her arms
and carried her to the fire, laying her gently on her sleeping bag. She
knelt beside her.
A primal need reflected in Alexís eyes as she stared hungrily at
the woman before her. Her feelings spilled from her in a heartfelt
confession, her voice hoarse with passion. "Forgive me... I want
you so much."
Danielle didnít hesitate, she took advantage of Alexís weakness
and pulled her down, rolling on top of her. She bent down, her tongue
seeking the sweet taste of Alexís mouth. Her thirst was insistent,
driven by years of yearning. Every nerve in her body tingled. The
thought that Alex might falter and pull back made her advances even more
fervent. She had to have her, there was no turning back. "Alex I
need you... I need you so."
"Yes... Oh yes."
Her words caused Danielleís passion to shift from a slow burn to a
blaze that was totally consuming. Their lips met again and her body
trembled with the contact. Danielleís heart felt like it would
explode. All thought was gone. She was driven by instinct alone,
euphoric as her body pressed against the length of Alex, claiming what
she so desperately desired. She moaned and drank in her heat.
Slowly she pulled back, straddling Alex. Her face flush with
excitement. Her lightweight skirt was pushed up tightly around her hips.
Her breathing was heavy, fevered. A thin covering of moisture shone on
her skin in her bodyís futile attempt to cool itself. She looked to
Alex for the release only she could provide.
When their eyes met, Alex thought she might die for want of this
woman. She reached up and slowly unbuttoned Danielleís shirt, sliding
it off her shoulders. The sight of the young womanís breasts took her
breath away. Her erect nipples strained forward, begging for attention.
Her hands roamed up Danielleís sides. She wanted to run her tongue
over the eager flesh, to take each tenderly in her mouth. It was
impossible to hold back. Her fingertips gripped the soft skin as her
thumbs grazed the tip of each breast.
"Ohhh yes." Danielle moaned and her head fell back.
Alex pulled her down, capturing the young womanís mouth. The sweet
taste of her was indescribable. She could not get enough. Effortlessly
Alex rolled her over, gaining the top position. She sat back on her
heels, breathless. Kneeling between Danielleís legs, she unfastened
her skirt, tossing it aside.
Danielle reached up to unbutton Alexís top. Her fingers trembled
with anticipation, making the task difficult. Desperately, she grabbed
the edges of the material and forced them apart, releasing a shower of
Alex gasped in surprise. Danielle smiled, pleased by her reaction.
The passion Alex saw in her young loverís eyes inflamed her. She
claimed Danielleís mouth once more, groaning as their bare breasts
touched. Her hands grasped Danielleís bottom, kneading the pliant
flesh. She pulled her onto her lap.
Danielle wrapped her legs around Alexís waist, causing her to emit
a low passionate groan. Alex had never felt such softness. Their bodies
melded as if they were each part of the same being.
Danielle greedily captured her mouth. Alex breathlessly relented as
her loverís inquisitive tongue pressed past her lips, exploring her
with the ardor of a first love.
Throughout their kiss, Danielle pressed her sex firmly against Alex.
The sensation of the wet cotton panties against her belly inflamed her.
She slid a finger past the elastic waistband, desperate to rid Danielle
of the garment without breaking the delicious contact.. She pulled back
and looked into her loverís eyes while tugging gently at the thin
material that separated her from what she needed more than air.
"Pleeease... do it!" Danielleís voice was hoarse, her
eyes glazed with passion.
Alex recaptured her mouth and with two quick rips removed the
unwanted clothing. With the last barrier gone, she felt Danielleís
naked sex press against her and released a shuddering sigh. Danielle
immediately spread her legs wider, increasing their contact. Alex moaned
as she felt the evidence of Danielleís desire, wet and slippery, coat
her skin. She pressed the young woman to her. Nearly lost in the
rapture, she wanted to taste her, to thrust into her. Her fingers gently
grasped the young womanís bottom and slowly lifted and lowered her in
a sensual rhythm. The heat of Danielleís slick center gliding over her
taut abdomen was delicious. Alex lightly caressed her loverís earlobe
with her lips, then softly nipped her neck, breathing hotly against her
Danielle was delirious with pleasure. The sensation of her swollen
clit rubbing against Alexís hot flesh caused her to moan unrestrained.
The contact was intense, unrelenting. It was ecstasy. She felt an
exquisite tension coiling inside her and knew instinctively that the
rapture that she had yearned for her entire life was almost upon her.
She was nearing orgasm, and she wanted it, more than she had ever wanted
Her head fell back as she clung to the strong womanís shoulders.
"Ohhh... Alex... "
"Let go, Iíve got you." Alex whispered softly.
Instantly it was upon her. Danielleís body went rigid and she cried
out, gripping her loverís shoulders as spasm after spasm tore through
her. Her body quivered as glorious sensations spiraled outward from her
center. It seemed to go on and on as Alex maintained the steady rhythm,
prolonging her pleasure.
Danielle took a long trembling breath and collapsed against her
lover, her head cradled in the hollow of the older womanís shoulder.
Nothing had prepared the young woman for the magnitude of her release.
When her senses slowly returned, the raw intensity of her emotions
overwhelmed her and she cried in her loverís embrace. Alex pulled the
sleeping bag around them and held Danielle lovingly in her arms, rocking
Soon, Danielle calmed and looked deeply into her eyes. "Alex, I
remember you. My body remembers you."
She softly kissed Alexís face, her lips lightly brushing her brows.
She tenderly stroked her dark hair, afraid this was some wonderful dream
that she would awaken from. Her fingers gently trace the fine features
of Alexís face in an attempt to verify she was real.
Danielle searched Alexís eyes for a sign that her love was
returned. The adoration she in her loverís eyes made her fears
"Iíve never been so happy. Please... give us a chance."
Tears rolled down Alexís cheeks as she hugged Danielle. She tried
to imagine how she could go on without this woman in her life. Her
carefully constructed walls were crumbling. Like it or not, her heart
had opened to this remarkable young woman. She realized that regardless
of her decision, she owed Danielle the truth about her feelings.
She pulled Danielle tightly to her and whispered. "No matter
what happens... know that I love you... more than life."
Alexís words filled Danielle with joy, renewing her conviction. She
would find a way to make Alex understand that they were stronger
together than apart. She looked deep into her eyes, trying to express
feelings there were no words for.
The sky opened, releasing a light rain. Alex tipped her head back and
let the cool water splash her face. Danielle watched entranced, as water
droplets sparkled on her loverís lashes. The woman before her was
truly magnificent... and hers. Her mouth hungrily claimed Alexís and
their passion flared, mindless of the persistent rain.
Back at the cabin, the two women sat naked in front of the fireplace
holding hands. They stared into the glowing flames. Both needed to
maintain physical contact, a link between them. Unfamiliar emotions left
Alex confused and vulnerable, for the first time in her life she was
Danielle looked dreamily into the fire. She was caught in the wake of
physical pleasure of an intensity she had never imagined. She didnít
want it to end. Her body had felt nothing for so long, that now she
allowed herself to reveal in the incredible sensations she had
experienced. Alex loved her. There was nothing she could not face.
Danielle would not back down. She had to have Alex in her life.
Finally, she drew in a long breath and summoned the courage to speak,
praying she would be able to convince Alex of the miracle that she now
wholeheartedly embraced: they were destined to be together.
"I want to express what you mean to me, but I donít have words
to communicate the love I feel. I need to be with you." She took
Alexís hand and press the long fingers to her lips.
"My entire life, I knew that something vital to my being was
missing. At last I have found you. I feel whole." She paused and
looked intently in her loverís eyes. Finding only love there, she
continued. "Canít you feel it?"
Alex did, but couldnít reply. Her throat was tight with emotion.
Her feelings were consuming her. It was too much. She gently squeezed
Danielle squeezed back comfortingly. "Alex I know I told you I
would leave if thatís what you decided, but I... I donít think I
can. Thereís no going back for me. I am so sure of us. I am willing to
risk anything to be with you. Anything... Please donít send me
away. Iím asking you to trust in our love."
She held Alexís face in her hands, desperate for her lover to
A single tear slid down Alexís cheek. She rose and stood before the
fire, staring into the hypnotic flames. The thought of something
happening to Danielle terrified her. The young womanís safety was her
main concern. Still, she couldnít dismiss the miracle of Danielleís
love. She had no doubt that they were meant to be together. There was no
denying that for some inexplicable reason their destinies were
intertwined. She needed Danielle and believed in her heart that Danielle
needed her. There were no easy solutions.
She felt the warmth of Danielleís hand as it slid into her own and
a calm enveloped her. The tension drained from her body. She sat down
and parted her legs, gently seating Danielle between them. Alex eased
her lover back against her bare chest, solving her need for contact,
without revealing the emotions she was struggling with. She wrapped her
arms tenderly around Danielle and gently rocked her back and forth,
unsure if her actions were meant to comfort herself or her young lover.
Danielle remained silent, relishing their closeness. She waited
patiently, allowing Alex the time she needed.
Slowly Alex came to her decision. Closing her eyes, she allowed
herself to feel the soothing presence of the young womanís sitting
between her bent legs. The warmth of Danielle hips against her inner
thighs, the softness of her hair against her breasts was heavenly. She
was keenly aware of the heat that radiated from her body at each place
their skin made contact. It amazed her how in such a very short time
Danielle had come to mean everything to her.
She took a deep breath and whispered softly into her loverís ear.
"Together then... for better or worse, weíll go through this
together." Danielleís heart leapt. She tilted her face up and
eased back against her loverís soft breasts.
Alex bent to capture the eager lips of her young lover. Her kiss sent
streams of tingling pleasure to Danielleís core. A warm flush radiated
through her body and she became acutely aware of Alexís erect nipples
pressing against her back. She wanted to turn to face Alex but her body
refused to break the warm embrace.
She struggled to speak. "Alex I want you, I want to make love to
you. Show me how to please you."
Alex smiled and breathed hotly into her loverís ear. "Mmmm...
yes, Iíll show you. Weíll practice... on you." The deep tone of
Alexís voice made Danielleís pulse quicken, her body instantly
responding to the idea.
"Iíll go very slowly, so youíll remember every kiss... every
touch." She felt her young loverís body tremble. Danielle moaned,
her passion heightened by her loverís words. Her head lolled back and
rested on her partnerís strong shoulder. Alexís fingers moved across
Danielleís torso with feathery light caresses. The teasing contact was
delicious. Alex cupped her loverís breasts in her hands. Her thumbs
circled Danielleís erect nipples.
"I love the way your body responds to me." She whispered
The warmth of her loverís breath and heat of her words eroded the
last of Danielleís inhibitions. All traces of the reserved woman she
had once been were gone. Unabashed, she arched into her loverís touch.
Alexís thumbs brushed the harden tips of her loverís breasts,
flicking the sensitive points. Danielle moaned as she felt moisture
trickle from her opening. Encouraged by her loverís reaction, Alex
rolled the aching nipples between thumb and forefinger, pulling gently.
Danielle groaned with pleasure. Alexís left hand continued to caress
her loverís breasts while her right hand ventured lower. Her fingers
at last reaching their destination, slowly sliding through the curly
golden hair and across the moist outer lips. Danielle could not contain
her excitement. She cried out.
"Do you need me to stop?"
"God no... please."
Alex smiled, pleased at the urgency in her voice. She used two
fingers to spread her loverís lips and glided through the ample
wetness, the inside of her fingers lightly stroking either side of the
young womanís clitoris. Danielle felt herself climbing quickly. She
was very close.
"Mmm, youíre so swollen, so ready." Alex smiled. "Do
you now how desirable I find you, how much you please me?"
Danielleís breathing quickened.
"Youíre capable of such pleasure. This beautiful body was just
waiting for me, for my touch." Alex purred.
"Yes... oh God I... I..." Danielle exclaimed. Her heart
pounded as her body flooded with excitement.
"Youíre almost there again, arenít you?" She stopped
the motion of her fingers and felt her loverís hips thrust toward them
in an attempt to resume contact.
"Ohhh Alex... pleeease... "
"Oh no... not so quickly this time. You can sustain arousal for
a long time. A very long time."
Danielle trembled. It was such exquisite torture. Her body writhed
against Alex, begging for her touch. She wanted more.
Alex redirected Danielleís attention by lightly squeezing her
nipple. At the same time, she ran the other hand along the inside of
Danielleís thigh. "Iím going to enter you very slowly. Are you
Danielle couldnít form words, she nodded vigorously.
Alex poised one finger at the young womanís entrance and slid into
her teasingly slow. She delighted as Danielleís muscles tightened
around her, pulling her deeper, until at last she was all the way in.
She remained motionless allowing the young womanís body to become
acutely aware of her presence. Alex reveled in the warmth and softness
surrounding her. It was heavenly.
"Oh, Alex.. I feel you ... so deep..." It was utter bliss
for Danielle. Her emotions were raw. She felt so much. Alex sensed her
surge of emotion and began to ease her finger out.
"Please..." Danielle grabbed her wrist, holding her firmly
in place. "I... I feel you... your energy inside me. Itís... oh
God. Pleeease... I need you."
Alex kissed her tenderly, then began a slow rhythmic thrusting,
pushing deep inside then retreating to the edge of her entrance. She
took her time, allowing the sensations to build inside the young woman.
Danielle was climbing higher and higher, delirious with pleasure. Climax
was nearly upon her, the steady pumping driving her wild. Poised at the
brink of release, she held her breath. It was divine.
Then, without warning, Alex slowly extracted her finger. Danielle
groaned, her inner muscles clutching at emptiness. The loss made her
ache. Alex adjusted her position moving out from behind the young woman
and lowered her to the floor, careful not to sever physical contact. The
young womanís eyes locked with hers, desperate for an outlet for her
mounting passion. She needed more and kissed Alex hungrily to express
Her tongue sought entrance to Alexís mouth and the stronger woman
relented, thrilled by the intensity of her loverís desire. The kiss
was more forceful and demanding than Alex had expected from the gentle
woman, but she loved it and submitted completely to the aggressive
exploration. Soon both women were lost in the heat of the kiss, equally
matched in their passion.
Gradually their frenzied efforts eased. When Alex felt Danielleís
body relax, she began to slowly rekindle the urgency. She lightly
stroked her erect nipples, gently brushing her nails across the hardened
nubs. Danielleís head fell back, and Alex gently pressed her knee
between her loverís legs, reminding her of her need.
Danielle moaned and arched into her partnerís thigh. Alex teased,
pulling back. She positioned her firm leg inches above Danielle pulsing
sex, forcing the desperate young woman to lift into her again and again,
for but the briefest contact, each touch leaving her wanting. Danielleís
eyes were closed tight, fully concentrated on her effort. Her body
unable to remain still.
Alex looked down at Danielleís tense expression and longed to see
the desire cloaked by long lashes and silky lids. Slowly she lowered her
leg, pressing firmly against her loverís wet center. Danielleís eyes
opened, and Alex found herself looking into the depths of the young
womanís being. A soul that sought its twin.
Alexís breath caught. The playfulness in her blue eyes, replaced by
luminescent desire. Danielleís heart hammered and she opened her mouth
to beg her lover to continue. But, the words evaporated as she watched
Alexís head dip down and felt warm, wet lips closed on her nipple.
Alexís teeth grazed the sensitive erection, pulling while her tongue
licked the aching tip. Danielle moaned softly, and Alex began to suckle,
with gentle but unrelenting pressure. Danielle squirmed under the tender
assault, her mind adrift, swimming with pleasure. She was floating, lost
in the sweet sensations.
Without warning, Alex entered her with two fingers, sliding deep
inside. Danielle gasped. Alex caressed her tight walls, heightening her
awareness, awakening every fiber of her being. Her suckling became more
insistent. With each deep thrust, her mouth drew hard on the nipple,
pulling sensations through the Danielleís body like an electric
charge. Their combined energy was building inside her, intensifying with
each thrust, every pull. It was too much, and not enough.
Danielle was straining, desperate for even the slightest pressure on
her clit. Her hands clenched at her sides, entangled in the fluffy
comforter. The temptation to use them was great, but she held back .
Even at the height of her torment, she understood the perfection in her
loverís attentions and wanted experience their full impact. Just one
touch, and she would merge with this incredible woman, body and soul.
As if reading her mind, Alex circled the swollen nub with her thumb.
It was divine torture. Danielle wanted desperately to shift her hips,
force the contact. Her teeth clenched to keep from crying out, and she
struggled to keep still. At last, her lips parted and she exhaled in a
long groan. She could not hold back.
Alex felt Danielleís hips lift, her will broken, and let her thumb
slowly glide over the swollen pulsing surface. That single stroke was
all it took. The orgasm was upon her like a tidal wave. Danielle was
helpless, plummeting over the edge. She cried out as currents of ecstasy
raced through her, exploding in brilliant colors. She knew at once that
the beautiful light that engulfed her was Alex.
As Danielle slept, Alex tried to imagine what she had done to deserve
such a love. She would move heaven and earth to protect this woman. From
this moment on, she would try be the person Danielle deserved.
To do that she had to free herself and that meant at least one more
person had to die. And somehow she had to keep Danielle from being
tainted by it.
Alex eventually drifted to sleep and dreamed of the beautiful woman
she held in her arms.
