Black Lingerie Chronicles, Part Fifteen

Drumming her fingers on her knees, Mindy glanced at the clock, again. She groaned when she saw only a couple of minutes had passed since the last time she had checked. Time was taking too long to pass, each extended tick rubbing against her already raw nerves like heavy grit sandpaper. However things turned out today, she just wanted it to be done with it.

She was supposed to meet her babysitter at the corner of Melbrooke and Second Avenue at three o’clock. The only problem was, it was twelve-forty-five. She hadn’t gotten much sleep last night, kept awake by anxiety over seeing Sarah, again. Worse, she woke up way too early this morning, has had too much time to guess and second guess what would happen when she got in Sarah’s car at three.

Waking up her phone, she saw the message Sarah had sent her: Can’t wait to see you! Don’t forget to be at the corner at 3!!

Mindy made the mistake of looking at the clock, sighed in frustration. It was a long time until three o’clock, especially with seconds taking minutes and minutes hours to pass. She looked back at the message, only to gasp when her phone chirped in her hand. So intent on the text, the new message tone had startled her. She laughed at her jumpiness, saw she had a new media message.

Opening it, she gasped, again. It was a selfie of a very naked Sarah. Mindy thought it was a new picture and the girl looked as good as ever. Maybe even better than Mindy had remembered. For a long moment, Mindy couldn’t look away from the screen.

A part of her had hoped Sarah had gotten fat or less attractive in some other way. The theory being if she was less attractive, it’d be easier for Mindy to resist Sarah’s gravity, which had always sucked her in. It was a flawed theory, at best. The hold Sarah had had over Mindy hadn’t been a purely physical thing. There was a whole tangle of emotions in Mindy, with her babysitter at the center of the knot.

Still looking at the picture, Mindy felt a stirring of desire for Sarah. Even when Sarah first started babysitting her, Mindy had thought she was pretty. This was before the naughty games began. She had been too young to realize it, but she thought she had been drawn to Sarah even then. Sometimes, she wondered if Sarah had picked up on that and that was why the girl had seduced her.

Maybe I’ll ask her today, Mindy thought, chewing on her lip. She wondered if she really wanted to know Sarah’s motivations. Why would a popular high school girl start up a sexual relationship with a young girl? Mindy couldn’t think of any positive reasons.

Right from the start, Mindy had known hers and Sarah’s games were odd, at best, and most likely wrong. That had been part of the appeal. What kid didn’t like to misbehave, especially when it was an adult game. She had gotten a naughty thrill from being naked with Sarah, knowing she wasn’t supposed to do that sort of thing. As the games got more and more sexual, the thrill had only gotten bigger. Then came her first orgasm and the hooks were in deep. After that, things had snowballed in a hurry.

Thinking back now, Mindy smiled at all the crazy times she had shared with Sarah. As much as she hated to admit it, she missed spending time with her. A lot of time had passed since they were together last, but the desire hadn’t completely burned out for Mindy. Not for Sarah, either, it would seem.

Mindy’s mind went wandering and ended up on the last time Mindy and Sarah had shared a bed. She had been eleven…

…On padded feet, Mindy sneaked down the hallway. Holding her breath, she listened at her parent’s door. From inside, she could hear the dueling snores and had to smile. Both of her parents swore up and down that they didn’t snore, despite the claims of the other.

Mindy was glad they both snored; it made it easier for her to be sure they were both asleep when she wanted to sneak out. She let her breath out in a sigh of relief and headed back to her room. Her heart was racing as she slipped into some jeans and a light jacket. With her shoes in her hand, she opened the door to her room. Mindy poked her head out into the hallway, saw it was still deserted. Mindful of the floorboards that squeaked, she made her way downstairs and out the back door.

Outside, she pulled her flashlight out of her pocket. Using her fingers to cover up most of the lens, she turned it on. A narrow beam of light spilled out, barely illuminating the ground in front of her. It was just enough for her to navigate the backyard and slip past the tree line of the woods. With the conifers and deciduous trees to mask her progress, she removed her fingers from the lens. The woods were full of deadfalls and gofer holes, rocks and brier patches, so she’d need all the light she could get to make it to the cabin safely.

Some kids her age were scared of the dark, but Mindy wasn’t one of them. She loved being outside at night, loved the song of the owls and insects, loved the chilly air heavy with moisture. She enjoyed the walk through the woods when she sneaked out almost as much as she enjoyed what waited for her at the cabin. Almost.

Thinking about the cabin, she had to smile. She had discovered it during one of her endless wanderings through the woods. It was run down and overgrown, long abandoned. She hadn’t been brave enough to go inside, getting the heebie-jeebies just looking at it. Not a fan of scary stories and films, she thought the place had horror movie written all over it. Still, it had been something cool to find, and she had told Sarah about it. Intrigued, Sarah had wanted to see it for herself. Mindy had taken her to it, standing on the porch as the girl went inside. She had been ready to run if Sarah screamed. It turned out, she didn’t need to. With plenty assurances from Sarah that there were no homicidal clowns or zombies lurking within, Mindy had gone inside. It had been dirty, musty and there were cobwebs everywhere. Mindy had seen a dump, but Sarah had seen the potential. Sarah wanted to clean it up, for some reason.

Her smile widening, Mindy knew why now. For months now, the cabin has been their meeting place. It was much more spacious than the back seat of Sarah’s Toyota and, once they dragged the mattress there, it was a lot more convenient and comfortable.

The mattress had been a stroke of luck. Mindy’s parents had decided to replace the mattress set in their room, putting the old one out at the curb. Again, Sarah had been inspired, and the two of them had muscled the wobbly rectangle through the woods. It had been a struggle and Sarah had to keep promising Mindy it would be worth it. Sarah had made good on that promise when they finally had the mattress inside the cabin. Twice, in fact.

Mindy’s parent’s had assumed someone driving by had helped themselves. Seeing it missing, her father had said, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, I guess.”

If he had only known it was his daughter’s ‘treasure’.

Thinking about what she and Sarah had done on that mattress that first night, Mindy started walking faster. She wasn’t sure if her racing heart was from her brisk pace or the excitement of seeing Sarah, again.

It had only been a couple of days- Sarah had babysat her Thursday- but it seemed longer to Mindy. She had been looking forward to tonight all day. Mindy had to smile and shake her head. This thing that had started out as just a naughty game with Sarah had become something else. Something more. She craved Sarah’s body, her touch more and more. The more she was with Sarah, the more she wanted to be with her.

Mindy was pretty sure this infatuation was wrong. Why else did they have to hide it? Still, she didn’t understand why it was wrong. She loved Sarah, was pretty sure the girl loved her back. She liked the things Sarah did to her, liked the feel of her toes curling as she came. She even liked to do those things to Sarah, liked to watch the girl’s eyes roll back in her head as she climaxed.

“So what if they think it’s wrong,” Mindy muttered, as she walked, “I don’t.”

Coming upon the cabin, she saw a faint light flickering inside. She hurried to the cabin and, when she opened the door, she found Sarah inside. The girl was sitting on the bed, playing on her phone. Hearing Mindy open the door, she looked up and smiled. Mindy’s heart skipped a beat, as it always did when Sarah smiled at her like that.

“There you are,” Sarah said, tossing her phone aside. She uncoiled herself, coming to her feet. Crossing the floor, she took Mindy into her arms. Stooping, she gave Mindy a toe-curling kiss, one that they were reluctant to break. Finally, Sarah pulled back enough to ask, “Where have you been?”

“Mom and Dad took forever to go to bed,” Mindy husked, smiling up at Sarah.

“Well, I almost had to start without you,” Sarah said, playfully.

“I’m here now,” Mindy said.

“Indeed, you are,” Sarah said, kissing her, again. Putting her arm around Mindy, Sarah led her to the mattress. Stretching out, Sarah patted the mattress beside her.

Mindy didn’t join her right away, started undressing instead. Sarah’s eyes were heavy as they watched her slip out of her clothes. Mindy’s heart started beating faster. Sarah had a way of looking at her that always made her heart rate soar. She was pretty sure Sarah wasn’t supposed to look at her like that, but she loved it when she did. It made her feel pretty, desirable. For someone who was largely ignored by her parents, Sarah’s undivided attention as she slipped out of her jeans was like water to a woman dying of thirst.

In just her panties, she joined Sarah on the mattress. Her already racing heart sped up even more when Sarah gave her a quick kiss, then started removing her own clothing. As Mindy watched the teenager undress, she thought about the arc of her reaction to seeing Sarah naked, from that first time to now. At first, she had giggled and found their games amusing. As their play took a turn towards sexual, she started to associate Sarah’s naked body with naughty pleasure. Somewhere along the way, she started to admire the girl’s long legs and high breasts, her round backside and taut stomach. At first that admiration was more clinical- she just wanted to be built like Sarah when she grew up. Now, she admired Sarah’s long legs because she knew how good it would feel to have them wrapped around her in the heat of passion.

Sarah didn’t stop in her panties, stripped completely naked. Smiling, she returned to the mattress, moving between Mindy’s legs. Mindy lifted her backside off the bed, let Sarah remove her panties, too. Naked, she grinned up at the teenager, wondering what she intended to do next. Over the course of the last couple years, Mindy had learned there were a good many things Sarah could do and that all of them felt amazing.

The babysitter just looked at her a minute, her eyes roaming over Mindy’s supine body. Mindy shivered, Sarah’s gaze hot like a caress on her bare skin. She felt a flush of heat between her thighs, turned on by the way Sarah was looking at her.

“You are so beautiful, Mindy,” Sarah said, smiling.

Frowning, Mindy thought she heard something in the girl’s voice, “What’s wrong?”

Sarah didn’t answer, leaning in to kiss her instead. Distracted, Mindy forgot about what she thought she heard in Sarah’s voice. Kissing her babysitter back, Mindy started to respond to caress of Sarah’s tongue, let the girl draw her in deep. Her desire welled up and Mindy was ready for it when Sarah broke the kiss to leave a trail of them down her stomach. Each time Sarah’s lips touched her skin a little lower, Mindy’s heart would beat a little faster. She knew what was about to happen, knew how good it felt and the anticipation was killing her.

The flick of Sarah’s tongue across her bud drew a moan from Mindy. Her eyes wide, Mindy propped up on her elbows to watch what her babysitter was doing to her. Sarah rolled her eyes up at Mindy, the corners of her mouth turning up in a smile as she continued her sweet torture. Mindy moaned again as the hot, wet caress of Sarah’s tongue sent shivers of pleasure through her young body. With a mind of their own, her hips pushed her girlhood against Sarah’s mouth eagerly.

Sarah put her finger in her mouth to wet it with saliva, then eased it into Mindy’s slick core. Mindy gasped as it slipped deep and found that magic spot. Her body exploded with pleasure as Sarah teased it with her fingertip. The lovely sensations washing through her only got that much more intense as Sarah’s mouth returned to her bud. Afraid she might be washed away by those waves of pleasure, Mindy’s fingers dug into the mattress, and she held on for dear life.

“Oh God,” Mindy said, her head lulling back loosely on her neck.

So many wonderful things were happening to her young body for her to last long. Her head snapped up, and she looked wide-eyed at Sarah as she felt the first stirrings of an orgasm. Sarah’s lips turned up even more, and her eyes shone with excitement as she pushed Mindy closer and closer a climax. She didn’t let, kept it up right until Mindy cried out in ecstasy. Mindy lost control, her whole body shaking as she came.

Lost in the afterglow, Mindy felt fuzzy. She laughed as she tried to catch her breath. Her body felt amazing, her nerve endings still tingling from her orgasm.

“Wow,” she managed when Sarah’s face appeared above her. The teenager smiled and kissed her deeply.

Mindy ran her hand down Sarah’s stomach and between her thighs without breaking the kiss. Sarah moaned into her mouth, her hips pushing against Mindy’s hand eagerly. Mindy kept her fingers moving in lazy circles, until Sarah had to give up on the kiss. Pulling back, Sarah favored Mindy with a sexy little smile, her eyes flashing.

Sarah stretched out next to Mindy on the mattress, and Mindy rolled onto her side, moving against Sarah. Mindy cupped one of Sarah’s breasts, kneaded it until the nipple stiffened in her hand. With her mouth, she teased it until Sarah groaned and her back arched off the bed. She let her hand slip down Sarah’s taut stomach and onto the cleft of her sex. Sarah moaned thickly as Mindy’s able fingers massaged her bud.

Her hand slipped lower, and Mindy eased her fingers inside of Sarah hot, slick core. She felt Sarah grip them, took her in deep. Mindy found that spot that always drove Sarah wild, teasing it with her fingertips. Sarah’s little sounds of enjoyment grew louder, her body moving against Mindy’s hands hungrily. Mindy smiled, knew she had the girl feeling good.

Getting to her knees, Mindy moved between Sarah’s legs. She lowered her mouth to the girl’s bud, tasted the sweat on her skin. Breathing in the musky scent of the girl’s excitement, Mindy rolled her eyes up to look at Sarah. She smiled when she saw her face pinched in a rictus of pleasure, her eyes rolled back in her head. The flick of her tongue and the caress of her fingers had Sarah on the brink of ecstasy.

Feeling Mindy’s eyes on her, Sarah said, “You are going to make me come.”

“I know,” Mindy said, grinning at her.

“Oh God,” Sarah said, laughing, “God, you don’t know the things you do to me when you smile that.”

She loved it when Sarah said things like that, and she was smiling as she continued to pleasure the girl. Her cheeks were wet from Sarah’s thrashings and her jaw was beginning to hurt, but hearing Sarah’s moans and sighs kept her going. She wanted to make Sarah feel as good as the girl had made Mindy feel, wanted to make her toes curl and her back arch. Wanted to make her come so bad.

Mindy glanced up as a new urgency entered Sarah’s cries. She saw the tension in Sarah’s stomach and thighs, saw her fingers digging into the mattress. The corners of Mindy’s mouth turned up even more as she watched the girl come undone. Sarah cried out one last time as her body locked up on her, then shook itself loose. Mindy watched the orgasm have its way with her, then leave her a gasping, trembling mess.

Smiling, she crawled up to give Sarah a kiss, then snuggled at her side. Her head on Sarah’s breast, she listened to the girl’s heartbeat as it began to slow. She snuggled a little tighter against Sarah’s flank and the girl put her arm around her. They stayed like that awhile, just enjoying the closeness of their bodies.

“I need to tell you something,” Sarah said, after a while.

“What?” Mindy asked, a little drowsy.

“You know how I’ve been taking classes at the community college these last couple of years?” Sarah asked, her fingers tracing small circles on Mindy’s bare shoulder.

“Yeah,” Mindy said.

“Well, I’ve finished all the classes I can take there,” Sarah said.

“Okay,” Mindy said, frowning. Something in Sarah’s tone said this wasn’t the good news that it sounded like.

“To finish my degree, I’ll have to go to another college,” Sarah said.

Mindy propped up on her elbow, meeting Sarah’s eyes. She saw the answer to her question before she even asked it, but gave voice to it anyway, “You don’t mean the University, do you?”

“I’ve been accepted at Greenwood,” Sarah said.

“Where’s that?” Mindy asked. When Sarah told her, Mindy’s eyes got wide, “That’s three states away!”

“I know,” Sarah said, hugging her, “I- I don’t know what to say.”

Tears streaming down her cheeks, Mindy asked, “Do you have to go?”

“I do,” Sarah said, sighing.

Mindy hugged her tighter, crying on her shoulder. Sarah held her and let her get it out of her system. Eventually, the tears dried up and Mindy sat up.

“When are you leaving?” Mindy asked, wiping her eyes.

“Next month,” Sarah said.

“Will you… Will you be able to visit me?” Mindy asked, meeting Sarah’s eyes.

Fresh tears spilled from Sarah’s eyes, and she looked away, “God, this is hard.”

“What?” Mindy asked, getting a sinking feeling in the pit of her stomach.

“I think it’d be best if we…” Sarah said, then her shoulders fell and she met Mindy’s eyes, “I think we shouldn’t see each other anymore.”

“What?!” Mindy asked, stunned, “why?”

“Oh, Sweetie,” Sarah said, touching Mindy’s cheek, “we aren’t good for each other.”

“But I love you,” Mindy said, tears stinging her eyes.

“I know. That only makes this harder,” Sarah said, miserably.

Sarah’s face blurred as fresh tears began to fall. When Sarah pulled her close, Mindy clung to her as she cried. She thought if she could squeeze hard enough, she could change Sarah’s mind.

In her ear, Sarah whispered, “I love you, too, but this is the way it has to be.”

“No, it doesn’t,” Mindy blubbered.

“I know this sucks, Sweetie,” Sarah said, her words broken with emotion.

Mindy pulled back to meet Sarah’s eyes, her heart breaking when she saw Sarah had made up her mind. Swallowing past the knot in her throat, Mindy said, anyway, “Are you sure?”

Nodding, Sarah said, “I’ve- I’ve had a little time to think about it. It won’t be easy, but I… I really do think it’s the best for both of us.”

Mindy couldn’t see how that could be true, but she nodded. She straightened her spine, put on her brave face. Wiping her eyes, she said, “I guess.”

“After tonight,” Sarah said, meeting Mindy’s eyes, “we won’t see each other, again.”

“After tonight,” Mindy said, those words hard to get out. They kept wanting to stick in her throat like a knot.

“But, we still have tonight together,” Sarah said, reaching out and touching Mindy’s cheek lovingly…

—————————————-

Mindy hadn’t needed the flashlight on her way home, the sun already up. She had stayed the night with Sarah, falling asleep in her arms. In the morning, they had said their goodbyes, both of them crying.

Both of her parents had been awake by the time she walked through the door, but neither seemed to wonder where she had been or why. As usual, they were too engrossed in their jobs to find it odd that their daughter was already up and dressed and coming in from outside. Already dejected from losing Sarah, their benign neglect had felt like a knife to her heart. She had run upstairs and flopped face down on her bed, crying until she ran out of tears.

Looking down at the picture of a smiling and very naked Sarah, Mindy wondered why she was doing this to herself. The wounds Sarah had left in her were just starting to heal, thanks to Erin, Ashley, and Natty- Beason, too, in a different sort of way. Their camaraderie had bolstered her flagging morale, had restored her confidence in herself and made her feel like she belonged somewhere. She had learned she didn’t need Sarah to feel this way. Up until meeting Erin, Sarah had been her only real source of comfort and companionship.

Closing out the picture, Mindy set her phone aside. She glanced at the clock and groaned when she saw it wasn’t even one o’ clock.

———————————————

Sitting at the bus stop on the corner of Melbrooke and Second, Mindy kept looking up the road, waiting for Sarah’s Toyota to come into sight. The weather was mild and some of her fellow townsfolk were out and about. They weren’t paying Mindy any attention, the few glances they gave her far from malicious, yet Mindy felt painfully exposed on the uncomfortable bench. She wanted Sarah to hurry up.

Looking down at her pale blue dress, Mindy chewed on her lip. Other than her favorite pair of jeans, this was the best outfit she owned. Mindy hoped Sarah liked her in it. She had styled her hair this morning, once again bore a resemblance to the actress Lindsay Lohan. Earlier, looking in the mirror, she had wondered what Sarah would think of the new look.

Maybe she’ll hate it, call the whole thing off, Mindy thought, shaking her head. In some ways, Mindy thought that would be the best scenario for this reunion. Somehow, she didn’t see it happening, though.

This morning, before she put the dress on, she had pulled the lingerie that Erin had given her out of its hiding place. Looking at it laying on her bed, she had fretted over wearing it. In the end, she had put it on with the thought, just because I’m wearing it, doesn’t mean I’m going to let Sarah see me in it.

She had to smooth the hem of her dress on her thighs to hide the lacy tops of the stockings. It was kind of exciting wearing the skimpy lingerie in public. It gave her a naughty little thrill, even if no one would ever know she wore it.

Right on time, Sarah’s car rounded the corner and pulled to the curb. Taking a deep breath, Mindy got into the car. She caught a hint of Sarah’s perfume, and it took her back. Sarah had worn this same fragrance the whole time they were together. It brought back many memories of cuddling with Sarah in the afterglow, of breathing in the subtle, but lovely scent of the girl.

“Hi,” Sarah said, smiling at Mindy as she buckled her seat belt.

“Hi,” Mindy said, nervously.

“You look beautiful,” Sarah said.

“Um, thanks,” Mindy said, glancing at Sarah, “so do you.”

It was the truth. Wearing a little black dress and high heels, her sandy brown hair styled and her makeup carefully applied, Sarah looked amazing. Mindy couldn’t deny she liked the way Sarah looked.

“I love the hair,” Sarah said, reaching out to brush a lock behind Mindy’s ear.

“Thanks,” Mindy said, smiling at her.

“When did you start wearing it like this?” Sarah asked, pulling away from the curb.

“Um, three weeks ago, I guess,” Mindy said.

“What made you change it?” Sarah asked, glancing away from the road.

Mindy started to tell her about the party, about Erin surprising her with the Lindsay Lohan makeover, but hesitated. Instead, she said, “I- I just wanted to try something new.”

“Well, it works,” Sarah said.

Smiling, Mindy glanced out the window. They were heading out of town to a small hotel in a neighboring city. Her smile slipped as she thought about this need for secrecy. Too many people in her hometown knew about or suspected there was something between her and Sarah. Too many rumors about them already circulated around town. Mindy gritted her teeth, thinking about the hell she had caught at her old school when those rumors started.

Maybe reading Mindy’s mind, Sarah said, “I’m sorry we have to drive to Hamilton.”

“It’s okay,” Mindy said, smiling at her.

Sarah smiled back at her, but it was a sad one. Sighing, she said, “I’m sorry about the rumors.”

Nodding, Mindy looked out the window, again. She felt Sarah looking at her, but didn’t turn around. To her reflection in the glass, Mindy said, “Me, too.”

They rode in silence for a while. It wasn’t a comfortable one.

Sarah turned off the road into the parking lot of a little roadside motel. Pulling the car in front of one of the faded red doors, Sarah put the car in park. Mindy looked at the tarnished ‘12’ on the door, then at Sarah. The babysitter gave her a sheepish smile and shrugged.

Opening her door, Sarah said, “It’s the best I can afford.”

Mindy hesitated, still looking at the door. Shaking her head, she unfastened her seat belt and got out of the car. She joined Sarah at the door as she put the key in the lock. When Sarah twisted the knob, the door stuck in the jam, and she had to put her shoulder to the door just to get it open. She looked embarrassed as she stepped aside to let Mindy enter. Mindy hesitated, wondering what the room would look like.

The inside of the hotel room was a pleasant surprise, clean and well kept. Looking around the room, Mindy felt some of her misgivings alleviated. The slow decay that had gripped the outside of the building hadn’t found its way inside, yet. She had half expected a seedy, run-down hotel room like out of a movie, but it was kind of cute in the disheveled sort of way that only non-chain motels could manage. Everything was clean and in its place, but the furniture didn’t quite match, and the color choices for the carpet and the bedclothes were questionable, at best. Generic landscape paintings hung on two walls, and the third was taken up by a monstrosity of a dresser. A clunky old TV sat on top.

“What do you think?” Sarah asked, anxiously.

Laughing, Mindy said, “It’s okay. Relax.”

Nodding, Sarah closed the door. She was smiling as she walked by Mindy and she paused with her hand on the door to the bathroom, said, “I have a surprise for you. Give me a minute.”

“Okay,” Mindy said.

When Sarah disappeared into the bathroom, Mindy shrugged out of her purse, set it on the nightstand by the bed. Seeing the remote, she picked it up and turned on the TV. Whoever had this room last or maybe the maid had been watching Comedy Central and Mindy sat down on the bed to watch some South Park. She glanced at the bathroom door, wondering what sort of surprise Sarah had for her.

A commercial break came on, and Mindy glanced back at the TV. Seeing it was the trailer for the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie, Mindy cringed. Beason had asked if she wanted to see the movie with her. As she watched the trailer, she felt a twist of guilt about being here. Beason was cute, funny, and Mindy liked spending time with her. They had only been dating two weeks, but it seemed longer. Mindy thought the instant connection she had felt for the girl would only grow into something more.

Assuming I don’t muck it up by being here, Mindy thought, chewing on her lip. Still watching the trailer, Mindy thought about Erin, Ashley, and Natty. She has never had a close friend before meeting Erin, but now she had three. They had more than filled the hole in her life Sarah had left, and she loved them so much.

Erin and Ashley had thought this reunion with Sarah was a bad idea from the start. Mindy couldn’t argue with them. She knew she was setting herself up to get hurt, again. Still, she had come here, ready to open old wounds and for what? A weekend of sex? Then Sarah would be back at college and Mindy would be left to pick up the pieces.

Mindy glanced up as the bathroom door opened. Her eyes widened as Sarah stepped out of the bathroom wearing a clingy black bustier and matching nylons. Mindy’s heart started racing as she drank the girl in.

God, she looks so sexy like that, Mindy thought, knowing she was in trouble. Those doubts she had been experiencing didn’t go away, but they were smothered by her desire for Sarah.

Smiling playfully, Sarah asked, “What do you think?”

“Wow,” Mindy said, meaning it. Sarah’s legs looked amazing sheathed in sheer nylon, the bustier hugging and accentuating Sarah’s lovely figure, but it was the simple ribbon choker around her neck that got to Mindy.

“I was hoping you’d like it,” Sarah said, crossing the room and helping Mindy to her feet. She kissed Mindy deeply, and Mindy felt dizzy with need.

Before she completely lost control, Mindy put her hand on Sarah’s shoulder and pushed her gently away. Her voice was a little husky as she said, “Wait.”

“What’s wrong?” Sarah asked, meeting Mindy’s eyes.

Mindy looked at her a long second, then asked, “How do you see this working?”

“What do you mean?” Sarah asked.

“You are only going to be in town a couple of days and then what?” Mindy asked.

“I don’t know,” Sarah said, kissing her, “we’ll figure something out.”

Shaking her head, Mindy slipped out of Sarah’s arms. With her back to the girl, she said, “I was devastated when you left last time.”

Sarah came to her, put her hands on her shoulders, said, “I was, too. I tried to stay away, but I’ve missed you so much.”

“I’ve missed you, too,” Mindy said, sighing, “but I can’t go through that, again.”

“What are you saying?” Sarah asked.

Turning around, Mindy met Sarah’s eyes, said, “I love you, Sarah. I’ll probably always love you, but I can’t do this.”

“Oh,” Sarah said, sitting on the bed.

Sitting beside her, Mindy said, “I think you know it, too. Like you said, we aren’t good for each other.”

“No,” Sarah said, a tear slipping down her cheek, “we definitely aren’t.”

Surprised by her sudden willpower, Mindy said, “I’m sorry.”

“It’s okay,” Sarah said, smiling sadly, “you are right. I know you are right, but sometimes the heart doesn’t see things as clearly.”

“Yeah,” Mindy said, nodding. Glancing at Sarah, Mindy said, “You wearing this didn’t make it any easier. You look incredibly sexy.”

“Thanks,” Sarah said, looking down at herself, “maybe I should put some clothes on.”

“Yeah,” Mindy said, laughing.

“Let me get dressed, then we can figure out what to do,” Sarah said, getting up.

Watching Sarah walk to the bathroom, Mindy felt a twinge of desire for the girl. Even knowing the pitfalls, she still kind of wanted to sleep with Sarah. She shook her head, wondering again about the hold Sarah had on her. Like Sarah had said, the heart didn’t always see things as clearly. Apparently, neither did her libido.

———————————————

“Hey.”

“Hey, Beautiful,” Mindy said, smiling, “what are you up to?”

“Nothing,” Beason said, sighing, “I’m bored.”

“Want to meet me at the cabin?” Mindy asked.

“Um, yeah,” her girlfriend said, sounding surprised, “I thought you couldn’t do anything today.”

Taking a deep breath, Mindy said, “Can we talk about it at the cabin?”

“Yeah,” Sarah said, picking up on something in Mindy’s voice, “Are you okay?’

“For once in a long time, I am,” Mindy said, meaning it. She felt free, sad but free now that she was done with her old babysitter.

“Do you want me to come to your house, instead?” Beason asked.

“I’m not there,” Mindy said.

“You aren’t?” Beason asked, surprised.

“It’s a long story,” Mindy said, cringing, “can I tell you at the cabin?”

“Um, okay. I can be there in… twenty minutes?” Beason said.

“Make it thirty,” Mindy said, looking around as she hung up.

Sarah had dropped her off at the bus stop on Melbrooke and Second, the same one she had picked Mindy up at earlier. Mindy started walking back toward her house, which was about fifteen minutes away. She wasn’t going home, though. Her parents thought she was at Erin’s house, so she couldn’t just go home and take the path behind her house. She was pretty sure she could cut down Thomas Street, then tuck into the woods there. Her familiarity with the woods should be enough for her to find her way to the cabin.

“I hope,” Mindy said, out loud.

As she started walking, she tried to figure out what she was going to tell her girlfriend. Lying would be easiest, but Mindy didn’t want to start lying to Sarah now. That left telling her the truth, which scared the hell out of her. This thing with Sarah was new, but Mindy thought it was… Something. What if Mindy opened up about her babysitter and Sarah bolted? Just how much the idea of losing Sarah hurt told Mindy how much she cared about the girl.

“I have to tell her,” Mindy said. However it turned out, she didn’t want her meeting with her babysitter on her conscience. She just hoped the girl would forgive her.

Mindy made it to the woods and paused just inside the tree line to get her bearings. Her house was west of where she stood now, which meant the cabin should be north. She hesitated, wondering which would be her best course of action- just head west until she ran into the path to the cabin she was familiar with or just walk straight toward the cabin and hope her sense of direction was true. Going west would take longer, making her arrive at the cabin late but she was ninety-five percent sure she would make it to the cabin. If she chose to strike out north, she’d beet Sarah to the cabin. Assuming, of course, she didn’t get hopelessly lost.

When she started walking, she found herself heading north. She hasn’t spent much time in this part of the woods, and intrepid explorer in her was enjoying this new territory to discover. As she walked, she kept her head on a swivel, taking in all the beauty Mother Nature had to offer.

It helped distract her from the conversation she would have to have with Sarah.

She had been walking about ten minutes when her feet crunched on loose gravel. Looking down, she saw she was on an overgrown parking lot. When she looked back up, she noticed a burnt out building tucked in among the trees. It was barely more than two walls, the rest gutted by a long-ago fire.

Mindy was about to keep walking when a splash of color in the husk of a building caught her eye. Her curiosity got the better of her, and she took a detour to check it out. Stepping into the ruins, she gasped as her eyes were drawing to the walls. One wall was completely painted in a mural depicting erotic lesbian couplings. It was breathtaking and beautiful and more than a little visually stimulating. Mindy just stared at it a long moment, unable to look away. Finally, she managed to tear her eyes away, saw the half-finished painting on the other wall. It was just an intricately painted border, the center empty. Looking at that empty space, Mindy wondered what the artist would put inside.

“I’ll have to come back when it’s finished,” Mindy said, turning away.

As she started to leave, she noticed the pool furniture and the makeshift table. Something about the layout resonated with her; it reminded her of the cabin. Smiling, she wondered if this was some young couple’s secret spot.

Leaving the camp unmolested, Mindy continued on her way. She kept glancing up at the sun to keep her bearing. When she was about twenty minutes into her walk, she began to have doubts. She had figured she should be at the cabin by now. Another five minutes and she was wondering if her aim had been off. She was ready to turn around when she finally spotted the cabin.

Sarah was waiting for her inside. The girl looked up and smiled when Mindy walked through the door. Her eyes got wide when she saw the dress Mindy wore, her hair. Mindy could almost see Sarah’s thoughts in her eyes, and she felt horrible at the worry in them.

“Hey,” Mindy said, standing just inside the door.

“Hey,” Sarah said, her smile slipping, “you look amazing.”

“Um, thanks,” Mindy said.

Sarah looked at her for a long moment, then asked, “Who did you get dressed up for?”

Her shoulders falling, Mindy said, “Sarah, my old babysitter.”

Nodding, Sarah said, “I was afraid you’d say that.”

“She’s in town,” Mindy said, looking away, “we had made plans to get together before Carrie’s party.”

“Oh,” Sarah said, looking away.

“I-I…” Mindy said, then took a deep breath, “I’m sorry. I should have told you about it.”

“It’s fine,” Sarah said, standing up, “we aren’t exclusive. You can see whoever you want.”

Mindy could hear the hurt in the girl’s voice, and it was a stab to Mindy’s heart. Sarah started for the door, and Mindy caught her arm in a panic, said, “I want to be exclusive!”

“You do?” Sarah asked, hesitating.

“Yes,” Mindy said, meeting the girl’s eyes, “but I… There are some things you need to know about me… and my relationship with my babysitter.”

Searching Mindy’s eyes, Sarah asked, “Are you sure you want to talk about it?”

“Not really,” Mindy said, with a nervous laugh, “but I think-”

Sarah cut her off with a smile, said, “I just need to know it’s over.”

“It is,” Mindy said, holding her gaze, “whatever Sarah and I had… It’s over.”

“Are you sure?” Sarah asked.

“Yes,” Mindy said, smiling, “I only want to be with you… If you’ll have me?”

A slow smile spread on Sarah’s face, and she hugged Mindy, “I want to be with you, too. Exclusively.”

“Good,” Mindy said, sighing with relief, “I was sure I had mucked this up.”

“Oh, you are going to have to get back on my good side, after this,” Sarah said, pulling back to arm’s length.

Smiling at her, Mindy said, “How can I do that?”

“I’ll think of something,” Sarah said, returning the smile and kissing Mindy.

Mindy was a little surprised when the kiss deepened in a hurry. She hadn’t expected Sarah to be interested in making love, but there was definitely some heat behind it. Pulling back, she gave Sarah a curious look, asked, “Yeah?”

Sheepishly, Sarah said, “You look kind of hot in this dress.”

Laughing, Mindy kissed her, again. The space between them evaporated, Sarah leaning into Mindy. Her arms went around Mindy’s neck as the kiss became urgent. Mindy had to smile, thinking, I guess I’m forgiven.

Sarah hooked her fingers in the hem of Mindy’s dress, pulling it up. Mindy put her arms over her head so Sarah could remove it completely. It wasn’t until she heard Sarah gasp and looked down at herself, that she realized she had forgotten something. Sarah’s eyes were wide as she stared at the skimpy lingerie Mindy wore.

Oh shit, Mindy thought, her heart racing. She had completely forgotten about the lacy bra, tiny thong and sheer nylons she wore under the dress. Distracted by finally ending it with her babysitter for good and worrying about how Sarah would react to finding out about her seeing the girl, it had slipped her mind.

Meeting Mindy’s eyes, Sarah said, “Wow. Um… Wow.”

Mindy laughed, said, “Surprise.”

“I don’t think this was supposed to be my surprise,” Sarah said.

“Actually, it was,” Mindy said, blushing.

“You didn’t wear this for your babysitter?” Sarah asked, dubiously.

“I did, but she didn’t get to see it,” Mindy said, rubbing the back of her neck, “I meant… Remember when Erin and Ashley let me borrow some clothes for our first date?”

“Yeah,” Sarah said, giving Mindy a curious look.

Mindy started to tell Sarah about Erin giving the lingerie to her, then hesitated. Instead, she picked up her purse and dug out her cell phone. Giving Sarah a sheepish look, she held up the phone, said, “Um, can you… Just give me a second.”

Laughing, Sarah said, “Sure.”

Mindy stepped out onto the porch and called Erin. Looking down at herself, she was glad the cabin was in the middle of nowhere.

“Hi,” Erin said, coming onto the line, “I didn’t expect to hear from you so soon.”

“Plans changed… I didn’t sleep with Sarah. I ended it,” Mindy said.

“Oh thank God,” Erin said, clearly celebrating in the background.

Laughing, Mindy said, “I’m at the cabin with Beason. Listen, something happened and… Beason knows about the lingerie you gave me.”

Erin sounded amused when she asked, “And how did that happen?”

“Shut up,” Mindy said, laughing at her own expense, “she’s going to want to know about it, where I got it and from who…”

“Ah… You want to know if it’s okay to tell her about us,” Erin said.

“Yeah,” Mindy said, holding her breath.

“It’s okay,” Erin said, then said something away from the phone that Mindy didn’t catch, “Ashley said it’s okay, too.”

“What are you two up to?” Mindy asked, playfully.

“Nothing,” Erin said, her smile clear in her voice, “at the moment, anyway. I am staying the night, though.”

“Well, have fun,” Mindy said, smiling. It was kind of a sad smile because she missed being a part of the craziness with the girls.

“We will. Good luck,” Erin said.

“Thanks. Bye,” Mindy said.

“Bye.”

Taking a deep breath, Mindy went back inside. She found Sarah lying on the bed and joined her. Sarah looked at her expectantly and Mindy laughed nervously, said, “When Erin let me borrow her shirt, this lingerie was in the bag, too.”

Her eyes wide, Sarah said, “Erin gave you this lingerie?”

“Yeah,” Mindy said, meeting Sarah’s eyes so she could see it was the truth.

Frowning, Sarah asked, “Where did Erin get lingerie like this?”

“That’s a long story,” Mindy said, laughing, “let’s just say she has a lot of it.”

Sarah’s eye roamed over the lacy outfit and her frown deepened. Looking back at Mindy, she asked, “Why does it fit you so good?”

Shaking her head, Mindy said, “You wouldn’t believe me if I told you.”

“Try me,” Sarah said.

Shrugging, Mindy said, “It used to belong to a girl our age. She used to live in Erin’s house, about fifty years ago. Erin found the lingerie in a hidden compartment in the closet in her parent’s room.”

“That’s… weird, but not too hard to believe,” Sarah said.

Mindy thought she should stop there. Sarah didn’t need to know about Natty and the Place of Locked Doors. She had told the girl the truth about the lingerie, even if she did leave out the bat shit crazy parts. Today didn’t seem like the time to bring it up.

“I guess not,” Mindy said.

Looking at her, Sarah narrowed her eyes, asked, “There is more to this story, isn’t there?”

“Yeah,” Mindy said, laughing, “I left out the crazy parts.”

“You mean why a girl our age has a bunch of lingerie and how Erin found a hidden compartment full of it?” Sarah guessed.

“That would be the crazy parts, yeah,” Mindy said, waiting to see if Sarah was going to ask more questions.

“Maybe you can tell me about it later,” Sarah said.

“If you want,” Mindy said, smiling at her, “I doubt you’ll believe me.”

“That crazy, huh?” Sarah asked.

“Yeah,” Mindy laughed.

Sarah frowned, asked, “Why did Erin give you the lingerie? I mean, that’s odd, right?”

“A little,” Mindy admitted. She wondered if Sarah was going to figure it out.

“Even if she thought you might need it,” Sarah said, breaking out in a smile, “and I guess you did… I need to thank her, I guess.”

Laughing, Mindy said, “You should. I think she’d get a laugh out of it.”

Sarah met Mindy’s eyes, asked, “Why did Erin really give you the lingerie?”

“She gave it to me to wear for you… and because she thought it looked better on me than her,” Mindy said, holding her breath.

“Better on you,” Sarah parroted, her eyes widening, “so she’s… Have you?”

Laughing, Mindy nodded, “But not since we started going out.”

“You’ve slept with Erin?” Sarah said, clearly trying to wrap her head around the idea, “she’s a… lesbian?”

“Yeah, I guess she is,” Mindy said.

Sarah shook her head in wonder, said, “I never would have guessed.”

“Oh, I think you’d have figured it out, eventually,” Mindy said, amused.

“Wait,” Sarah said, her eyes wide, “did you… Turn her out?”

Laughing, Mindy said, “Turn her out?”

Sarah blushed, said, “You know what I mean. Someone had to.”

“No, it wasn’t me,” Mindy said, smiling, “In fact, I was the third girl she slept with.”

“Third!” Sarah said, flabbergasted, “who was the first and second?”

“A girl named Natty and… Ashley,” Mindy said, laughing at Sarah’s expression.

“Ashley Connors?” Sarah said, in disbelief.

“Yeah,” Mindy said, grinning.

“Holy shit,” Sarah said, laughing.

“Um, just for the record… I’ve slept with Natty and Ashley, too,” Mindy said, then in a hurry, “but not since we started going out. I’ve only been with you since then.”

“Wow,” Sarah said, then thought of something, “you went outside to call them, didn’t you?”

“Yeah. I wanted their permission before I told you,” Mindy said, then laughed, “but I only had to make one call. Erin is at Ashley’s right now.”

“Really?” Sarah asked, laughing.

“It sounded like they were going to have some fun tonight,” Mindy said, grinning, “Erin is staying the night.”

“Now, I’m jealous,” Sarah said.

“You know, Mom and Dad think I’m staying the night with Erin. Since I can’t go home, I’m sleeping here tonight. Maybe you should call your parents and ask if you can stay the night at my place. You could keep me company,” Mindy said, kissing her.

“Okay,” Sarah said, her eyes flashing as she rolled off the mattress. She pulled her phone out of her pocket, calling her parents.

Mindy got to her feet, embracing the girl from behind. She kissed Sarah just behind her ear, making her sigh. Her hands slipped up Sarah’s flanks, to cup her breasts. Mindy felt her nipples stiffen under the attention and Mindy teased them until the girl moaned.

“Stop that,” Sarah said, covering the phone with her hand. The other end of the line was picked up and she said, “Oh hi, Dad. I was wondering if I could stay the night with Mindy?”

Mindy ran her hands back down Sarah’s taut stomach, working the button free on her jeans. Sarah squirmed as Mindy ran the zipper down and slipped her hand into her panties.

“It’s okay with them,” Sarah lied, her voice a little funny. She had to cover the microphone as Mindy’s fingers teased her bud, “no, I don’t need anything.”

“Except to hurry up,” Mindy whispered into her ear, then nibble on the lobe. Sarah’s hips were beginning to move on their own, rubbing against Mindy’s hand eagerly.

“Grandma’s coming to dinner at five, got it,” Sarah said, having trouble controlling her tone, “I’ll be home before then.”

Mindy smiled, knew she had the girl excited. She let her hand steal under Sarah’s shirt to cup her breast. Sarah inhaled sharply and Mindy saw her chewing on her lip to keep quiet. She was breathing fast but she managed to hold in the moans that wanted to escape her.

“I love you, too, Dad. Bye,” Sarah said, ending the call. Tossing the phone on the bed, she said to Mindy, “You are the worst.”

“Hard to concentrate with my hand in your panties?” Mindy asked.

“Yeah,” Sarah moaned.

“So I have you until four-thirty, huh?” Mindy asked.

“I’m all yours until then,” Sarah said, craning her neck to kiss Mindy.

Sarah slipped out of Mindy’s arms, stretched out on the bed. Sinking to her knees, Mindy pulled Sarah’s shoes off and tossed them aside. With the girl’s help, she wrangled the snug jeans down her long legs and off. Next came her panties, which Mindy tossed over her shoulder. Sarah sat up so Mindy could remove her shirt and bra. Naked, Sarah smiled up at Mindy.

When Mindy started to undress, too, Sarah asked, “Could you leave it on?”

“You like the lingerie, then?” Mindy asked, playfully.

“Yeah,” Sarah said, with a sexy smile.

“Maybe I can talk Erin into letting me have some more,” Mindy said, leaning in for a kiss.

“More like this?” Sarah asked, fingering the lace on the bra strap.

“Like this and a whole lot of different styles,” Mindy said, smiling as she saw she had gotten the girl’s imagination going. Stealing another kiss, she said, “I’ll talk to her, if you promise to wear something for me, too.”

“Deal,” Sarah said, pulling Mindy down atop her. She wrapped her arms around Mindy’s neck and kissed her deeply. Her hands roamed over Mindy’s back, down to grab her buttocks. She pulled Mindy against her, pushing her own hips up.

Getting the message, Mindy ground her body against Sarah’s. The lovely friction brought a moan to both of their lips. Pulling back from the kiss, Mindy met Sarah’s eyes. With a sexy smile, Sarah smiled at her and nodded.

Mindy surprised Sarah by getting off of her. Sitting up, Sarah looked confused, frustrated. Laughing Mindy leaned in and gave her a kiss, before sitting up. She pulled her legs in, sitting Indian style. Sarah was watching her with interest.

“Come here,” Mindy said, opening her arms. When Sarah climbed sideways into Mindy’s lap, Mindy helped her spin around until she sat in the hollow of Mindy’s legs, facing her. Sarah looked down at this curious position, then back up at Mindy expectantly. Mindy smiled at her, leaned in for a kiss. While the girl was distracted, Mindy reached behind her to grab her buttocks. Pulling forward, she startled a gasp from Sarah. When she did it, again, Sarah’s eyes got wide and she started smiling. Mindy didn’t have to do it a third time.

“Oh,” Sarah said, her smile becoming playful as she continued to rock her hips back and forth.

“As my Dad always said, there’s more than one way to skin a cat,” Mindy said, kissing her.

“Ugh,” Sarah said, making a face, “now there’s a romantic image.”

“Sorry,” Mindy said, laughing.

Sarah wrapped her arms around Mindy’s neck and met her eyes, said, “I get the feeling I have a lot to learn.”

“Some,” Mindy agreed, then started grinning, “but you’ll have a lot of fun learning.”

“I bet I will,” Sarah said, kissing Mindy deeply.

Mindy pushed her hips up, meeting Sarah counter-thrust for thrust. The meetings of their body sent shock waves of pleasure washing through her and her fingers tightened on Sarah’s buttocks. Sarah met her eyes as the roll of her hips came faster and faster. Mindy could see the excitement in the girl’s eyes and it fed her own. Their pace became almost frantic in their need.

One hand slipped from Sarah’s buttock, slid up her sweat-slick skin, to cup her jiggling breast. Mindy kneaded it until Sarah groaned and arched her back. Leaning forward, Mindy trapped Sarah’s other nipple between her lips, gently nibbling on it. Sarah pressed her breasts against Mindy’s mouth and hand eagerly. Mindy didn’t let up until Sarah couldn’t take, anymore.

In a move that surprised the girl, Mindy tumbled Sarah onto her back. Barely breaking stride, Mindy moved between Sarah’s thighs. Digging her knees into the soft mattress for traction, Mindy ground her lower abdomen against Sarah’s. The lovely friction drew a moan from Sarah’s lips and she smiled up at Mindy. Mindy smiled back at her when the girl wrapped her legs around her waist and pushed her hips up into Mindy.

“I know this one,” Sarah said.

“I’m glad you remembered,” Mindy said, smiling.

Laughing, Sarah kissed her and said, “It’s hard to forget.”

Mindy put her hands on either side of Sarah, taking most of her weight on her arms. It let her really grind against Sarah, let her put more pressure where it needed to be. She saw the slight widening of Sarah’s eyes, saw her face screw up in pleasure and smiled.

“What are you smiling at?” Sarah asked, around a moan.

“You liked when I did this last time, too,” Mindy said, leaning in to kiss Sarah. She kept her hips moving and Sarah moaned into the kiss.

“Oh God,” Sarah said, breaking the kiss, “this feels so good.”

Mindy really ground against Sarah, saw the girl start to come. The look of surprise on Sarah’s face as she was going to climax brought on Mindy’s and she had to fight her body to keep her hips moving. One, two, three more thrust of her hips and Sarah cried out as she came. Mindy stopped fighting, let her own orgasm have her. Even in the haze of her own pleasure, she could feel Sarah trembling beneath her.

“Holy shit,” Sarah said, laughing as she looked wide-eyed at Mindy.

Trying to catch her breath, Mindy said, “Yeah.”

Sarah’s legs released her and Mindy flopped onto her back. She smiled when Sarah pressed up against her flank and she put her arm around the girl. Mindy kissed her, asked, “Does that mean I’m on your ‘good side’ now?”

“You are getting there,” Sarah said, playfully, “by the time we leave tomorrow, you should be.”

Mindy’s smile widened, remembering they were spending the night together. Then, looking around the cabin, she slipped out of Sarah’s arms. Snagging her dress off the floor, she slipped into it.

Sarah was watching her, asked, “Where are you going?”

“If we are staying here tonight, we are going to need a few things,” Mindy said, stepping into her shoes.

“Strawberries and a can of whip cream?” Sarah asked, playfully as she sat up.

“I like where your head is at,” Mindy said, giving her a kiss, “but I meant candles and some batteries… Food and something to drink.”

“Why batteries?” Sarah asked.

“There’s a little portable heater,” Mindy said, pointing at the closet, “but the batteries are probably dead.”

“Why not use the stove?” Sarah asked, pointing at the potbelly stove in the corner.

“I never trusted it,” Mindy said, looking at it, “the chimney is overgrown.”

Sarah stood up and reached for her jeans. As she wriggled into them, she said, “I’ll look at it when we get back. I’d love to have a fire.”

Giving the girl an amused smile, Mindy said, “Take a look at it, huh?”

“My dad’s a caretaker, remember?” Sarah said, pulling her shirt on, “I help him out in the summer, sometimes. I’m pretty handy.”

“You are going to fix the stove, huh?” Mindy said, then laughed and shook her head, “is it weird that I find that kind of hot?”

    Thank you so much fo another wonderful story! I’m glad Mindy dumped the babysitter, she was nothing but trouble! My only disappointment was nothing on the Erin/Ashley storyline but I guess I’ll just have to be patient. Keep up the great work and I will anxiously await the next installment!

  2. Quinlan says:

    I’m loving this! The break-up, the relationship confirmation, even telling Sarah a little about Natty and their adventures. (And boy, do I want to see Sarah’s reaction to the truth about Natty! lol) It was all done very sweetly. Great work!

  3. Fur says:

    I’m very happy to see this and it did work out exactly as I expected it to. I’m just hoping you don’t make Erin and Ashley exclusive because both of them have a major bong to Natty as well though I know at some point that will end too.

    I’m so very glad Mindy realized just how important her new lover is and I do look forward to where this goes. I also love the brief tie in to “henna tattoo” with the mural in the other building. I’m hoping for a side story on the other Sarah finding her love now that she’s let mostly let go of Mindy, but it’s just an idea not a request.

    Thank you again Ebo and I can’t wait to hear from Susy and Jen on this.

    P.S. I’m very glad your both doing so much better.

  4. ebo says:

    Thanks Quinlan, Greg and Fur. I’m glad everything is working out like you hoped for Sarah and Mindy. I even managed to sneak in a sex scene between the babysitter and Mindy without making Mindy a cheater. I was kind of proud of that one. As for the nod to ‘Henna Tattoo’, it was actually the second Easter Egg I’ve added to this story recently. The other one was a little bit more subtle, referenced from an older story, and I had just returned to writing after a long hiatus, so I’m not surprised it was overlooked. It was in Part Twelve, if anyone wants to look for it.

  5. Fur says:

    But then I’d have to admit to how much I read these stories and I can’t do that…

  6. ebo says:

    Um, I think you just did ;)

  7. Susy and Jen says:

    Our Dear Ebo,
    Yesterday evening.
    Please bear with me – the scene needs setting to explain why my little Treasure burst into tears during this episode. We shower daily but do enjoy relaxing (etc.) in our corner bath before bedtime. I’d had enough and the following ensued, more or less.
    “If you are getting out, please, could you have another look?” With her enormous baby-seal eyes, Jen gave me her 200 watt, irresistible and mischievous smile. So, I got out, put in some more hot water and left my little bundle of fun to play with her water pistol, whilst I dried and opened your site. Not having looked for some days I was delighted to find 15 waiting for us. Before going further, I must mention that, until the surgeon says otherwise, Jen has not to be “excited” for muscle contraction would be very painful and damage stitches. I’m sure you understand me. So, for now, I’m doing the reading and censoring the juicy bits for another time. Back on track… thanks heaps for 15 Ebo – ‘cos I got Treas out of the bath, dried and in bed in record time. Usually, unless I confiscate her water-pistol, she would stay in for ever if I let her but now, she’s sitting in bed, wrapped in an enormous white towel with only her little head sticking out, grinning at me and waiting for me to start. So I read. Although we knew Babysitter was coming, we didn’t expect the approach you took. I got to the line, “Maybe I’ll ask her today” and then nature called me. I broke off reading, telling Jen – not to peek at 15. I came back and she was crying her eyes out. She had peeked (you will remember she cried over Mindy/babysitter before) Tonight, went along the lines (can’t recall exact words)…
    “Sweetheart, what’s wrong.” Putting my arms around her tiny frame.
    “Mindy’s just been cheating on Sarah with the babysitter. (Huge teardrops looking up into my face) and you said she didn’t. I’ve just been reading she did – on the mattress.” Jen trotted out between sobs. (Ebo, that mattress will be the death of you and I) For a couple of minutes I scanned the text she pointed to. “My poor little darling, you naughty girl, I told you not to peek and you’ve been reading Sarah’s memory, not what is happening now.” I explained, gave her a big hug, “Oh” and she brightened straight away. I finished reading the rest without further incident.
    We reckon, it’s terrific that Mindy’s love is deepening and she is – AND – wants to remain, faithful. The exclusivity references are really touching.
    One point which stole Jen’s little heart – when Mindy referred to her and Sarah making love. “…she hadn’t expected Sarah to be interested in making love…” We think this is the first occasion anyone has called ‘the act’, “making love” and with Mindy and Beason, we feel that is most apt. Jen said, “see – it’s not your “bonking”, (she hates me saying bonking) it’s “making love”. The other, “making love”, is how we saw Erin and Ashley’s night together. If E & A really express their feelings (and they are almost there) – what about poor Natty? We know Erin doesn’t approve of “the other person” so where does that leave wonderful Natty? Could Erin and Ashley have a love affair that includes Natty? Jen said no – and I must agree – unless something wonderful happens with Natty – a broken heart is on the way for someone. Ebo, you have your work cut out to extricate yourself from this impending crises. Unless she falls completely for Lil Fker (are they still seeing each other?) and somehow joins her in “our time” or, and here’s just as big an imagination stretch, somehow Lil Fker joins Natty in her time. A big ‘ask’ to assimilate but then, no larger than that we’ve accepted to date.
    We both agree with Fur and No One that they are all growing/maturing mentally, (although mentally, Jen reckons, Natty’s experiences put her way ahead of the field). In this epi, you’ve grown yet another big ‘conunderunderum’, (as Jen would have it), introducing Beason to the existence of Natty. We wonder how far you can take the intro and all that it entails. Jen suggests that with Natty, it must be ALL or NOTHING and we wonder where it would lead. What do you two guys think, Fur, No One? Having discussed it at length, we can’t see Mindy wanting to share Beason. Not for selfish reasons but for the exclusivity they have both said they want. Since becoming romantically involved at 16, Jen and I have always felt the same about ourselves: could not conceive of sharing. One last thought from my little Treasure (hanging on to my left arm and looking over my shoulder as I type) Keep the Babysitter out of the story, unless (a nod to Fur here) she’s on a post card saying she has found a love of her own. My little darling is not a fan. Well, all for now except to Fur and No One, our thanks for your kind thoughts. Jen is doing fine.
    You too Ebo and also for a wonderful episode – please keep them coming. Sorry it’s so long, Love Susy and Jen xx

  8. Fur says:

    Don’t feel bad Jen, I’ve been guilty of the same many times in my readings. I can’t not look…

    I think Mindy could very easily introduce Natty and Sarah without a problem but I’m not sure how to do that.

    Polygamy does work well which is what Erin, Ashley and Natty being together would be but my gut says Ebo has a very unexpected twist coming that’s going to shock us all. In the end though I just don’t see Ebo being able to break the hearts of his characters, he’s like all great authors and their part of him. I could be wrong but I don’t see that happening.

    I’m very glad to hear your both doing much better and I do hope you can start to “make love” again very soon.

  9. No One says:

    A fantastic chapter! Great to see the long-awaited meeting-the-babysitter scene, and I’m very glad Mindy made the right decision in that regard. Sarah B. is definitely the right girl for her and they make for a very cute couple. Good job for working in that flashback scene in there, though, so that we could see a little of what their relationship was like.

    It will be interesting to see if Sarah will be told the whole story about Natty, though I suppose she will have to be at some point. While it would be hot to see Mindy and Sarah have some fun with the other girls, I agree with Susy and Jen that it wouldn’t be in their character to do so. Still, I’ll really miss the Mindy/Ashley pairing, with Mindy having a little fun with Ashley’s submissive tendencies… I’m not all that into dom/sub stuff normally, but here it was done in a rather sweet and sexy way. Maybe Erin will have to learn a little of that… ;)

    As for the core trio of Natty, Erin, and Ashley, well, it might be atypical, but I don’t see why they couldn’t make it work as a romantic three-way relationship. Erin obviously already has strong bonds with both girls, and while things may not be quite as strong between Ashley and Natty, they do care for each other a lot and I’m sure that could develop into something more. I think Erin might be leaning towards Ashley, though, and she did imply it would be weird to date someone who didn’t age… Still, there have been mysterious hints in the Place of Locked Doors shenanigans that there is more going on, and maybe there’s even a way to bring Natty back to the real world.

    I suppose I don’t want anyone to be left heartbroken… and also, I have to admit I’d be a little sad if everyone paired off one-on-one and there were no more wild orgies. ;)

    Finally, to Susy and Jen, good to hear the recovery is going well, and it’s always nice to read your detailed thoughts on this story as well.

    Another amazing chapter, from a fantastic author.

  11. jen and Susy says:

    To Our Dear Ebo and all those who have followed the problems that have beset myself and Susy these last few weeks, A BIG THANK YOU – your super duper kind thoughts and lovely wishes where hugely appreciated. In illness, well-wishes from friends and relatives are to be expected but from those new friends derived from our meeting at Ebo’s (sounds like a café/bar) it means considerably more – because prior to our meeting, we already have something wonderful in common. Our love and affection for those of our sex.
    In Susy, a meeting at 12 (birthdays within days of each other) ; a rapid, figurative joining at the hip (S is 5’8″ I’m 4’7″) (I got her height wrong once and told off for it)not long after; first tentative kiss at fifteen; a full blown romance at 16 and the most lovely wedding earlier this year when I became Mrs Jenifer Davy, I have found a love, the kind of which, I can only wish for you all. We have just celebrated our 26th birthdays and the only cross words we have, come my way when Susy finds me doing something my Doctor say I shouldn’t. “You little minx, I’ve told you about that – I shall be telling your Doctor and you’re going to bed early tonight.” “Goody goody gumdrops, suits me.” Just lately my favourite expression gets me nowhere. “It won’t suit you ‘cos tonight, all you’ll get is a cuddle, if your lucky. Susy does look after me and today she took me to see my surgeon and guess what he says” I’m better. I can now drive and do “other things” Did you get that Fur, tonight’s the night – not sure which of us is the most lucky – whom would you say?
    So thanks again, Ebo, Fur, No One.-
    Now I’m back reading (including the juicy bits) matters seem to sink in more readily and I can’t help but think that Ebo will not wish to break his readers tender hearts – the lovable characters do not include one objectionable type (unless you include the upperclassmen flaunting their newly found boobs to the, not so well endowed juniors) and I’m certain I speak for all of us in that we don’t wish to see any one of them hurt. Mindy and Sarah are on solid ground and although in 14 Erin recognises a special love for Natty, her love in the real world with Ashley is beginning to coalesce into the real thing. Erin’s love Nat is the real tearjerker – where can it lead, Susy has mentioned a few ideas but can they be worked in to reality. Without bringing someone else into the fold to remove the odd-one syndrome, then, as Susy said last time, big teardrops are coming. I suspect Susy will wish to hide that episode – she loves me that much. Erin’s deepening love for Ashley seems evident for she remarks how much she would have missed “this”, making love with Ashley at the end of the chapter and it’s not the fact she would not have cheated on Trisha and Ashley, she just would have missed her chance to cement her relationship with Ashley. Does that make sense -anyone. So what of Natty, Susy and I are not for sharing, certainly not for fun definitely not for anything else. In the gay world, call us old fashioned but it works for us, so many relationships have floundered because of sharing but given the unusual circumstances and unless we cannot have and dead/real world overlap then Fur’s polygamy with E, A and Natty is the only way to protem – avoid a broken heart, No One, what are your thoughts on this broken heart dilemma?
    With that thought hanging in the air and thanks again for your well wishes, Love Jen and Susy xx
    PS Next Epi please EBO – I’m glad I can read again.

    Jen and Susy, your story makes me smile.

  13. Jen and Susy says:

    Our Dear Ebo,
    Now that I am better, as Susy promised we have been giving thought, a whole heap of thought to the Box with which Fur was having trouble. We assume it is the Wolfe Box A and M bought for E’s birthday. The Box used to belong to Natty, given to her by her Love. The big question we assume Fur wanted answering was, “how did it end up in the jewellers where Erin first laid eyes upon it?” Well Fur, it took us a while to come up with our answer and well, we haven’t a clue. So Ebo, it’s up to you to tell us how it ended up in the shop.
    Lex, a big thank you for your comment above, it was kind of you to say so. Not trying to usurp Ebo’s story writing place – could never do that. Susy says I would never make a writer. She said that just after I got her in the ear with my water pistol. He he. Now she’s threatening me with hiding it. All for now and roll on your next episode of anything Ebo but you will know what we are all wishing for. Love Jen and Susy xx

    i have been following this story for ages and its very cool. the whole other world and natty is intresting.
    Though one comment from someone else about bring natty back….
    Hi mom and dad, I want to intro you to my new girlfreind, she has been dead for about 40 years and we just got her back to life and she needs some place to stay and a guardian to help her out in life since she is only 12….

    that would be very funny to explain to erins parents….

  15. Fur says:

    Wrong box Jen and Susy, I was speaking of the box the lingerie came in that Natty had Erin find. She filled it’s hiding hole with the other lingerie so it had to be hid somewhere else.

    I have a feeling the jewelry box ended up in that shop simply because someone sold it for whatever reason after Natty’s lover was out of the house…
