My Latina Queen

<span style="font-family: ‘Times New Roman’; font-size: medium">I was in a transitional stage in my life. Needless to say I was very bored with myself. I just graduated from college (North Carolina Central University class of 2003) and started to out grow my friends. I had the time of my life in Durham, N.C. When I came back home to the Bronx, New York I had to deal with these knuckleheads whose only interest is who’s the better rapper Jay-Z or Nas. To help with my extreme boredom I started to take Latin dance classes. Needless to say I love the dance classes, plus the parties that were thrown every other week were amazing.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-family: ‘Times New Roman’; font-size: medium">At first the classes were cool, but did not hold my interest. Being a Caribbean man with almost no Latin friend this new style of music was certainly culture shock. What did keep my interest were the beautiful women taking the classes. As time went on, I got better then promoted to the advance classes and that’s when things really got interesting.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-family: ‘Times New Roman’; font-size: medium">Since I’m only 5’9&quot; I was paired with a young lady named Angie who was beautiful beyond measure. (5’4 1/2&quot; 130lbs of pure where have you been all my life) &ldquo;I asked her what I&rsquo;m I not allowed to do&rdquo;. &ldquo;She looked at me, smiled (her smile almost knocked me out) then said anything you would not do to your mother don’t do it to me&rdquo;. I laughed, held her as if she was my wife and started dancing like a professional. After class she joked about my erection, then asked to see it. Being the man I am (trying to be smooth) my reply was &ldquo;I&rsquo;d show you after I take you out on a date&rdquo;. Once again that smile hit me below the belt in more ways than one.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-family: ‘Times New Roman’; font-size: medium">When I picked her up she looked stunning in an off white dress that was tight on top and slightly loose but short on the bottom. After an amazing dinner we saw this amazing Latin group perform, then to the Latin Quarter nightclub where the real fun began.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-family: ‘Times New Roman’; font-size: medium">We head straight to the dance floor as soon as we got entered the club. Dancing with this goddess as if we’re in love I turned her around started grinding on her perfectly round, firm ass like a high school kid. This is where the dance classes come in handy. Like 2 people grooving to a rhythm in perfect harmony our hip rolled, wined, together as if we had been partners for years. After what became the best date of my life I dropped her home, she planted on me the most passionate kiss I had at the time. I could not believe the date went so well. I could not believe a woman like her would even go out on a date with me.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-family: ‘Times New Roman’; font-size: medium">The story continues.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-family: ‘Times New Roman’; font-size: medium">Like a sucker I ran to a flower shop and purchase 24 roses for her. 8 pink roses, 8 white roses, and 8 purple roses, and had them delivered to her home. She called me as soon as she got them to say thank you. The sound of her voice sexually stimulated me while falling in love. &ldquo;She asked why am I not at work?&rdquo; &ldquo;I told her that’s one of the perks of being a teacher. We have the summer off.&rdquo; Then she invited me over to her home for breakfast.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-family: ‘Times New Roman’; font-size: medium">When I got there she greeted me with a kiss that seem to last forever. While kissing me so passionately I pulled her close while my fully erect penis wanted to break through my jeans. Grabbing her perfect butt caressing and molding like it my first time. We kissing then she rested her head on my chest. We held each other for what seemed like forever. While walking to her sofa she tells me &ldquo;that was the best date she been on in her life, and I was the first man to ever send her flowers.&rdquo; Sitting on my lap giving me the lap dance of my life. Grinding on my dick like a stripper I placed my hand inside her panties playing with her reproductive organ, the wetter she got the more intense the grinding became. Lifted her up and took her to her bedroom kissing on the way there. Placed her on the bed told her to sit on my face. Ate her pussy like it was my last meal. She bent down to put my 9 1/2 inch monster in her mouth. Her head moved up and down while the pressure of her sucking on my penis sent me to heaven. She turned to me gave me one of those passionate kisses then said &quot;let Angie take it from here.&rdquo; Placed my monster in her tight pink pussy and started riding like she was learning how to ride a bike. After getting the hang of riding her new toy like a big girl she rode my penis like merry-go-round. Riding me fast bringing me to the brink of explosion then slowing down taking the climax away from me. I touched every inch of her body taking advantage of this opportunity to touch this perfectly shaped. Now it’s my turn to show her how Black men pound Puerto Rican women. Bent her over her perfectly shaped ass and hips pointed towards me. Inserted my dick inside her sweet spot her moans sounded better than my favorite song. In and out slowly her moans sounded like angles singing. Increasing the tempo pounding her hard enough to let her know a real man was fucking her but soft enough not to hurt her. Kept that up for about 5 minutes. Laid her on her back sucking on her perfectly shaped breast. Telling me how much she loves it. Entered this goddess and pounding her like a man should making sure she enjoyed every second of this love making session. (That’s what a man does. He makes sure she is pleased) A puddle of love juices formed by her ass. We removed the comforter from her bed and continued making love for was seemed like forever. No matter how great the sex was that night, the best was holding her afterwards.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-family: ‘Times New Roman’; font-size: medium">For 8 years I had the pleasure of loving and living with this beautiful woman who would become my wife. Taking dance classes is hand down the best thing to happen to me. My life started when I met her.</span>

The Love Of My Life Pt 1

We flopped down onto the couch in Alex’s room with a sigh of relief. Both exhausted after a long night at the bar catching up with everyone after my return back to London. We’d had quite a few drinks throughout the evening and were definitely feeling it. I looked over at Alex sitting on the couch next to me. I scanned her up and down, taking in her petite body. She had always been stunning to me. Blessed with perfect 34D breasts and a shapely little bum on such a small frame. Something about her tonight was too much for me to handle. Years of unrequited love and lust was manifesting itself and I felt myself being overcome with an animalistic desire for her. I could feel my dick beginning to stir within my pants. I wanted her so badly. I decided to through caution to the wind and go in for a kiss. Surprisingly, she reciprocated. We were soon all over each other. I felt her soft tongue in my mouth while I groped her breasts for the first time. They were firm and warm, her nipples hard through her top. We made out furiously and passionately for a long time. Maybe it was the alcohol or maybe she had always known how I felt about her but for a reason beyond my comprehension she was completely into it. I pulled away and we stared into each others eyes. “I want you so badly Alex. I always have and always will. I missed you so badly when I was in America and I thought about you every day. You are the most special person that I have ever known. I know that I have told you this before and that you didn’t feel the same about me then. I am sorry for bringing it up again now after so long but I still feel the same about you. I will leave now if you want me to.” She looked at me through those beautiful brown eyes and gave me the cutest little smile that I have ever seen. “I know you do Daniel. You were there for me like no one has ever been. Back when we were in school you were the only reason that I made it through all the shit that happened to me. I know that back then the way that I treated you was unfair. I knew how you felt about me but I needed you too much to cut you free. I know what I said then but I want you now. I can’t believe that I am about to admit this and trust me I know how shallow it is going to sound but you used to be really, uhm, on the heavy side and I just didn’t think of you in that way. But now, I can’t take my eyes off of you. The way that you have transformed yourself is incredible. You really are gorgeous. Daniel I want you to fuck me.” With that Alex got up and took me by the hand. “Follow me to my bedroom, Dan. My roommates will be getting back sometime soon.” With that she led me away.

We made our way to her bedroom. She sat down on the edge of the bed looking at me. I was not sure what to do next. “Undress me,” she said with a naughty smile, pulling me out of my trance. I approached her and took her by the hands, pulling her to her feet. She turned around so that I was facing the zipper on her dress. I took grasp of it with shaking hands and zipped it down in one motion. She slid the straps off of her shoulders and let the dress fall to the floor. She turned to face me and I took her almost naked form in. Everything about her was breathtaking. Her taught stomach and shapely thighs. Her soft shoulders and perfect alabaster skin. Every inch of her was perfect. As I panned downwards I couldn’t help but stare at her panties. An unbelievably sexy black lace pair that were just transparent enough to give me a glimpse of what awaited me. She caught my eye and we both laughed. There was no awkwardness left in the air, this felt right. “Are you ready Dan?” With that she reached behind her back and unclipped her bra, sliding it off one shoulder at a time and dropping it onto the bed behind her. Before my eyes was the most beautiful pair of breasts that I had ever seen. Ample in size and flawless in shape. They had the perkiness of youth, while still looking soft and milky. “My God Alex, your boobs are absolutely amazing. You can’t possibly understand how incredible they are. I am speechless” She laughed and looked down bashfully, “I have always felt so awkward about them. I always thought that they looked too big for my body you know. I am glad that you like them though.” I continued to stare, completely entranced by them. “I can’t take my eyes off of them Alex. They are perfect. Can I feel them?” I asked timidly. Despite the fact that she was literally undressing in front of me I still was battling to compute in my head how this was all possible. “Of course Daniel,” she laughed, “You will be doing a lot more than that soon.” So I stepped toward her and took a breast in each hand, massaging them gently. There really is no way to fully give words to the feeling and the texture of a pair of young natural breasts. The softness of their skin on my hands; the milky texture, the coolness – It was everything that I ever imagined it would be. I kept working them firmly but sensually, feeling her nipples beginning to harden against my palms. She was moaning as I fondled her chest. “Ahhhh Daniel that feels so good.” I had this overwhelming desire to put my mouth over one of them. I wasn’t sure if that was something she would be in to but they just looked too good and I decided to just go for it. I leaned in and placed my lips over her left nipple while continuing to massage the other breast. I felt her tense up for a second but I kept suckling and massaging and I could feel her relax almost instantly. “Wow Dan, you’re quite kinky arn’t you. I have never had someone suck on my nipple before but it feels amazing.” In response I started working the nipple and surrounding areola area with my tongue. She tasted sweet and smelt like shea butter. I got lost in the licking and the sucking. I was incredibly turned on, I had never had such a rock hard erection in my life. My dick felt like it was going to explode. “I think we should get things started Alex, I want your perfect body now,” I said looking up from her breasts, which were now dripping with my saliva. “I think you are right Daniel, I am unbelievably horny right now. I can feel that my panties are already soaked. I am so turned on.” I looked down at her crotch and I could see what she meant. There were trickles of juice running down her inner thighs. I could faintly smell her pussies rich aroma in the air and it sent my brain into a primal tailspin. Before I could even think about what I was doing I knelt down and slipped my index finger under her panties and right into her warm pussy canal. “OHHHH DANIEL, that feels amazing!” She moaned. I moved it around slowly inside of her tight vagina. She was incredibly wet. I could feel the soft, wet walls of her canal tightening around my finger as I slowly fingered her. “Alex, your pussy is incredibly tight. It is a good thing you get so wet or I would have a hard time getting inside of you.” She did not respond so I looked up and saw that she was rubbing her beautiful breasts sensually with both eyes closed. “What a sight,” I thought to myself. I slid my finger all the way out of her unbelievably tight pussy. It was dripping with her juices. I put it to my lips and licked it clean, Alex’s eyes widening in amazement as I did so. “Alex your juices taste incredible. Your pussy is so clean and well looked after. Everything smells so good,” I said as I got up off of the ground. She looked at me and a naughty smile spread across her face. “Let me taste,” she said, as she pulled me in for a passionate tongue kiss. I could feel her tongue once again invading my mouth, working it’s way around – tasting her most intimate self. “I do taste good, don’t I?” She said as she withdrew from the lingering kiss. “Simply incredible Alex,” I exclaimed in disbelief.

Her eyes caught the massive erection pushing against the inside of my pants. Her eyes widened as she took it in. “Wow!,” Alex giggled. “I think that I need to take care of that for you, Dan. Take your clothes off and lie down on my bed.” I really liked the sound of that so I wasted no time in quickly stripping down to the nude and lying spread eagle on her duvet. My cock pointed straight up towards the ceiling and was completely engorged. Alex stood at the foot of the bed staring at it in amazement. “Wow Daniel. Your penis looks as hard as rock. That is amazing. By the way I think you have a beautiful dick. Perfect length and girth for my pussy. Also I see you are not circumcised. I truthfully have never seen an uncut cock in person. I know that I am going to have fun playing with that foreskin.” With that Alex mounted the bed and crawled seductively towards me. She straddled me and started slowly grinding against my thighs and lower ballsack with her soaking wet panties. “Are you ready, Dan? I think I am going to go all the way with this blowjob. Is that OK?” “Until I cum you mean?” I asked with some hesitation. “Do you not want to have sex anymore?” She let out the cutest laugh and gave me a silly smile. “That cock is going in my pussy tonight, I assure you Daniel. Hopefully also a few other places as well. Wha” “Wait what do you mean?” I interjected. “I mean my asshole Dan. I like anal sex just as much as vaginal sex and if you feel comfortable with it, I would really like you to put it in there later on?” I was grinning from ear to ear before she had finished talking. “Oh Alex. I would love nothing more than to stick my cock right into your tight little bum. I think my cock just got a little bit harder, and I honestly did not think that was possible. I really enjoy anal sex as well.” “Ok well that is definitely happening then,” she giggled. “Ok as I was saying before you interupted me. I am going to take you to completion now. Looking at your dick I do not think you will last very long, you are far too aroused. After that you can recover a bit and we can get some serious fucking going. How does that sound, Daniel?” “Ok I like the sound of that. Oh and by the way. You are a lot more kinkier than I realised. I love it Alex.” I said with a look of amazement. “The night is just getting started. Oh and when you are about to cum, tap me on the shoulder.” “Ok no problem Alex, will do.” I said looking slightly dejected. I had hoped that she would take my cum inside of her mouth and perhaps even swallow it. “Dan,” she said with a sexy smirk on her face. “I just want to be ready. I intend to swallow every bit of cum that comes out of the end of your penis. I only rarely do this but I think you deserve the special treatment. I really do love you Dan. You are the most special person I have ever known.” I was floored by that and all I could do was give her a warm smile. “Ok Dan, are you ready?”

She took a hold of my shaft and carefully drew my foreskin back, exposing the head. It was swollen to capacity and the head had an almost purple hue to it. She leaned her face a few centimeters over the tip of my cock and dripped a ball of saliva right onto the head, and quickly began massaging it in with both of her soft, delicate hands. She repeated that process a number of times until my cock was properly lubricated with her saliva. She then started slowly pumping my foreskin back and forth. She would pull it all the way up until it completely covered the the head and then push it all the way back down again. She did this very slowly as not to set me off to quickly. “Damn Alex, I love the fact that you are literally busy masturbating me using your own spit. 18 Year old me would never believe this.” She chuckled to herself and kept stroking my hard dick slowly. “How is this feeling, Dan? I am just getting things warmed up.” “Incredible Alex. Incredible.” She smiled warmly at me. “I think it is time Dan.” With that she fully retracted my foreskin and took my cock into her mouth. The immediate sensation of her warm, wet mouth over my incredibly sensitive cock was so overwhelming that I moaned loudly in response. She slid her mouth down my cock as far as she could take and then bobbed lightly and slid back up until just the head was left inside of her mouth. She repeated this sensual bobbing action, sliding all the way down and up again and again. Each time she would try and take me just that little bit deeper inside of her. I could feel the spit dripping down my shaft and soaking my balls. She noticed this too and began gently massaging my scrotum. The combination of sensations made my toes curl in pleasure. “Oh my god Alex, this is incredible,” I moaned in a shakey voice. She looked up from my cock without stopping her slow bobbing. We locked eyes and I felt overwhelmed with love for this girl. She took her available hand and slid it into her soaking panties. When she withdrew it again I could see her pussy juices dripping from her fingers. She moved her hand towards my face, pushing her soaking fingers between my lips and into my mouth. I loved the way she tasted. In response I moved my right hand under her bobbing head and into her crotch. I slid my hand between her panties, guiding my index finger into her soaking vagina. I started slowly fingering her again. I moved my thumb up over her clitoris and began stimulating that with a circular motion. I could feel her clit hardening under my thumb as her pussy gripped my finger tightly. Alex was gushing juices from her pussy by this stage. It had even begun to run down my arm and drip off of my elbow. For the first time since she took me into her mouth she pulled back completely and sat up a bit. She was spluttering for air and had gooey saliva running down her chin but she looked like she was in Heaven. “How are you liking this so far Dan?” She asked while continuing to stroke my soaked cock back and forth. “Jesus Alex this is incredible. I have never experience anything like this. I don’t know if I can last much longer.” “I think you have to cum for me baby, we have other things we need to get to.” She said with a cockdrunk smile. “Keep working my pussy Dan, slowly though. I want to build towards an incredible orgasm. You will be shocked when you see the amount of juices I can squirt out of my pussy when I cum.” With that she moved back down towards my cock and began furiously licking and sucking me into pure ecstacy. I could feel her tongue working my glans while she stroked the shaft with her hands. She was working my cock so hard I was sure that anyone else in the house would hear the immense slurping and slapping sounds. I didn’t give a fuck, this was incredible . Looking down at her beautiful face pleasuring my cock with all she had started to send me towards the edge. “Fuck yes Alex, that feels so good keep going.” I moaned. Alex kept working it with her warm and wet mouth and I could feel a pressure rising in my balls. On and on she went, devouring my cock and loving it at the same time. I was seconds away from an explosive orgasm now. I tapped her on the shoulder like she said to. She took her mouth off my cock immediately, and looked me straight in the eyes with precum and saliva dripping from her chin. “Give me all of your cum Daniel, I want it all.” She quickly took my cock back inside of her warm and wet mouth and began pumping and sucking even more furiously until I could feel my dick begin to spasm. My load was ready and I held on against the orgasm for as long as I could until I could no more. I let go and I felt jet after jet of thick warm cum shooting up from my balls and right into her hungry mouth. It seemed like an endless supply of cum, more than I had ever ejaculated. The orgasm rocking through my body as I unloaded into her mouth was the most powerful that I had ever experienced. “FUUUUCCCKKK!” I screamed in pleasure, “This is too much!” My whole body was shaking but she kept going, pumping and sucking through the orgasm until every last drop of cum had been milked from me. She swallowed it immediately, not losing a drop of my seed. I almost blacked out from sheer pleasure. I lay still and let the pleasure waves roll over my body. Alex unstradled me and lay beside me, caressing my chest gently. “Alex that was the best experience I have ever had,” I told her while staring lovingly into her eyes. “You are blowjob artist. I do not have words. I do however promise to make you cum just as hard. Are you ready?” Her eyes had lit up and a smile beamed across her face. “I am ready to cum for you Daniel. I am so wet already.” I used my thumb to wipe a blob of my cum from her chin, as I drew it away she intercepted my hand and guided it back to her mouth where she licked it clean. Goddamn I love this girl.

“Ok Alex lay down on your back. I am going to make you cum.” I instructed. “I can’t wait, do anything you want to me Dan.” She said as she moved into position with her back against the headboard. I noticed that she was still wearing her panties, which at this stage were soaked through with her sweet pussy juice. “Let’s get these off of you,” I said as slowly started peeling them off. She raised her hips to allow me to slide them off with ease. I got my first clear look at her beautiful pussy. It looked tight and soft. She had almost no pubic hair save for a small landing strip above her slit. Her pussy lips were flushed red with arousal, and I could see her juices leaking out from within. It was the most beautiful pussy that I had ever seen. My cock was already rock hard again and semen was still leaking out from my tip. I ran my finger along her slit and she quivered in pleasure. “Oh Dan, my pussy is so ready for this,” She moaned in pleasure. I decided to waste no time and I leaned in, planting my lips right onto that perfect pussy. I began licking and sucking her most intimate areas. I used my tongue on her clit and then forced it through her pussy flaps and inside of her. I lapped up her juices like a thirsty dog until they were dripping from my chin. I moved my tongue back up to her clit and began swirling around it with immense gusto. This gave me the room I needed to slip two fingers right into her tight pussy. I was fingering her sensually, burrying my fingers all the way to the knuckles and then slowly sliding them out to the nail and then deep down inside of her again. I began pumping them in and out of her with increasing speeds while I kept on licking and sucking her clitoris. “OHHHH OHHH DANIEL, THIS FEELS AMAZING. DON’T STOP,” she moaned loudly. I had no intention of stopping. I sped up my licking and fingering speeds and as I did so I could feel the soft walls of her vaginal canal tightening on my fingers. I was amazed at the amount of pressure that her pussy could clench with, I knew that I would enjoy my dick inside of her pussy later on. I kept powering on and by this stage pussy juice was flowing so freely from inside of her that it had soaked the duvet. A filthy thought came to my mind and I decided to go for it. Without stopping the fingering I took hold of her left thigh with my free hand and slid her down the bed towards me. This angled her crotch more vertically. This gave me full access to her anus. It was a beautiful little knot. It was pink and tight, I gave it a smell and it smelt salty but amazing, exactly what I was hoping for. I moved my tongue down there and started circling her bumhole, occasionally forcing just a small tip through her sphinter. “Daniel OHMYGOD that feels incredible, don’t stop I am close to cumming now.” I decided that I was going to go for it now. I kept up the rhythmic finger fucking of her pussy as I forced my tongue deep inside of her anus. It tasted clean and felt warm and tight. I could feel my fingers moving inside of her pussy against my tongue through her pussy wall. The lining of her anus felt ribbed against my tongue as I worked it in and out of her. I kept going at this pace until I felt more tension around my fingers than ever before, and her pussy began to tremble. “IM GOING TO CUUUUMMM DANIELL!!” She screamed as her back arched upwards and her pussy exploded in orgasm. Her whole body was shaking violently and she was now squirting juices all over my face. Her toes were curling and her eyes were rolling back at this point but I kept pumping and sucking her and she kept squirting and screaming in pleasure. She rode the orgasm for over a minute, squirting and shaking the whole time. “Stop stop stop!! I can’t!! It’s toooo much!!” I took this as the cue as slowly drew my fingers out of her pussy and my tongue out of her anus. My face was completely soaked at this point and I was hornier than ever. She lay quivering on the bed with her pussy still leaking for close to five minutes as I lay next to her stroking her breasts. “Wow Daniel, I feel weak. That was the best orgasm of my life. How did you do that?” she said, breaking the silence. “That’s nothing Alex, I think it’s time to put my cock inside all of your holes. What do you think of that?” “I like that Idea Daniel. I can see you are ready again,” she said looking down at my cock which was fully engorged again. “I have a few things for us to play with, let me grab them.” She said reaching over to her nightstand. She pulled out a wooden box and placed it between us on the bed. “Oooo fun,” I thought to myself as I pondered it’s contents.

End of a Long Week Time for Fun

The week slowly ground to a end on Friday afternoon. Chase had finished his day early at work and found his way home and jumped in the shower. His life had been very different after his surgery. Before his surgery he had worked hard with Brianna and managed to lose a good amount of weight and was really proud of the way he was turning out. After his surgery when he was cleared he started going back to the gym. He loved it very much and the new and interested looks that Brianna had been giving him and he was very excited to see himself in the steamy mirror as he exited the shower. He took his towel and wiped the steam away from the mirror and stared back at himself through his own brown eyes. Just then a thought entered his head, he smiled to himself as he picked up his razor and trimmed back his beard to give him a more chiseled look and thought to himself “Perfect, now I have to get to work.” He sauntered into the bedroom and let his towel hit the floor. The cool crisp air caressing his body felt very nice to him. He searched through his closet for the perfect thing to wear, tonight was going to be a great night. When he finished getting ready he looked himself over in Brianna’s full length mirror. He was very pleased with his choice of outfit. He had chosen a nicer patterned button up with an undershirt that was just low enough to show just the right amount of chest hair. For pants, he choose a new but worn looking pair of jeans with an almost acid washed look to them, they fit him nicely and hugged his waist just right to show off his features. He next put on a nice pair of loafers and walked through the house to get to work. He walked to the living room and put on his favourite house work mix and got started. He started by making sure that the house was spotless, then went out to their garden and picked a bouquet of roses, lilies, daisies and tulips, only the most perfect flowers would do for her, and took them into the house and put them in her favourite crystal vase. Pleased with how the house looked, and now smelled with the flowers inside, he got to work on dinner.

Dinner was his favourite part, he loved to cook almost as much as he loved her. He sat and thought about what would be perfect for her. He decided now would be the time to properly surprise her. He got started with the first course, a sushi appetizer. He had been watching how two’s and practicing in secret for some time and was ready to wow her. He prepared a few simple rolls to go with the rest of dinner and sat them in the fridge to stay fresh. With the appetizer done he turned his attention to the soup. This too was going to be her favourite. He pulled out the big pot and began peeling potatoes as the water came to a boil. After boiling for a while he removed all of the water and added cream and began to blend the potatoes into a fine soup then added cheese, scallions, and a touch of pepper to taste and the soup was complete. He decanted the soup into the chafing dish and sat it on the buffet ready to bring to the table. Next he set his eyes on the main course. For this he had to be careful. He had to get this just right or everything would fall apart including his ability to breathe. For himself himself and her he prepared a simple butterflied filet mignon with a creamy peppercorn sauce. Brianna’s steak, however, got a special surprise. Earlier in the week he had proper southern water shrimp flown in from the coast and had his butcher clean and de-vein them. Chase then applied gloves and a mask and grilled the shrimp to perfection and added them to the top of her steak before applying the creamy peppercorn sauce. For sides, he went simple. Steamed broccoli and mashed garlic potatoes with cheese. With dinner ready and resting in the lower oven in their serving dishes to stay hot and ready he began to finish up and make desert. For dessert he opted for something super simple. He made two cupcake sized brownies, and then filled them with a hot chocolate syrup and would top them with ice cream right before serving, and placed them in the oven to stay warm with dinner.

Show time. Chase smiled as he heard Brianna’s car pull into the garage. He raced to the living room and changed the music to a slow, soft, romantic album, and then returned to the dining room to retrieve the flowers. Brianna walks into the house and smiles as she hears the music. She walks around the corner and Chase is standing there still in his apron holding the flowers. “Hello beautiful,” he says as he handed her the flowers, “How was work?” Pleasantly shocked, she replies, “It was exhausting but it’s much better now” as she slyly smiles. “Good!” Chase says to her as he removes the apron and ushers her into the living room. She sets the flowers on the coffee table in the living room and sits down next to Chase on the couch and drapes her legs over his. Chase immediately reaches down and removes her shoes and socks and begins to massage her feet. “Oh, thank you honey,” Brianna almost slurs as she begins to relax, “you have no idea how much I needed that.” After sitting and talking for a few minutes Brianna’s stomach growls. Embarrassed, Brianna says “Oh! Excuse me! I guess I’m really hungry, do you want to go out and grab some dinner?” Chase smiles and stands up, “Don’t worry baby, I have go that covered. Wait here.” and leaves her to rest on the couch and enjoy the music. He quickly goes into the dining room and prepares the table. Turns the dimmer down walks back into the living room to retrieve his love. “Come with me.” he says as he takes her hand. She smiles and stands up and fully takes him in. She gives him and hug and looks up into his eyes, “You took a shower when you got home,” she says as she pulls him down for a slow kiss, “and you dressed up. What have you got planned mister?” Chase just smiles and leads her into the dimly light dining room, light dancing on the walls from the flickering candles. “Oh wow,” Brianna says in shock, “Is this all for me?” Chase just continues to smile and pulls out her chair. She takes her seat and he pours her a glass of wine. As he walks away from the dining room toward the kitchen he turns back and says, “Let me go get the appetizers.” He places down the covered plate in front of her then tells her he has a surprise. She smiles as he begins to lift the cover on the plate and she gasps as she sees the neat little sushi rolls on her plate. “Oh my god honey, these look amazing! Where did you get them?” Chase just smiles as he begins to blush, points toward the kitchen, and says “Oh about 20 feet that way. I made them myself. Now you start with those while I go get the rest of the appetizer shash second course” “Course!” Brianna exclaims. “There are courses?!?!?!?” “Yes my love” is all that Brianna hears as Chase disappears back into the kitchen to retrieves the bowls and fills them with soup. As Chase walks back into the dining room with the soup in hand all he can hear is what would be described as sexual noises coming from Brianna as she ate her sushi, and all that Chase could do was smile as he took the now empty sushi plate from in front of her and replaced it with the soup and say “I guess I did good, huh?” Embarrassed Brianna blushes and says, “Oh goodness yes sweetheart, some of the best that I have had! How did you do that?” “Practice my dear.” Chase says as he places the bowl of steaming soup in front of her. When she looked down and saw what was in front of her all she could do was let out an excited squeak. Chase just smiled as he took his place next to her at the table and began to eat as well. It was not long and both parties had consumed their baked potato soup with gusto and Chase collected the dishes and went to the kitchen to retrieve the main course. He opens the double oven and inside everything is still steaming and perfect. He excitedly extracts them and takes them to the table. Once again an audible squeak is heard from Brianna and then a question he knew was coming escaped her lips. “Honey,” she says with an almost shaky voice, “How did you cook shrimp and when did you buy shrimp?” Chase just chuckles and responds, “I cooked them very carefully on the grill and I got them flown up from the gulf this morning to prepare for tonight’s dinner. If you like them I have 10 more pounds in the freezer for you.” Wide eyed, Brianna quickly begins to dig into her steak and shrimp and falls absolutely in love with her plate. The two continued to talk about their days, and flirt profusely as they finished the main course. When both were done Chase stands and begins to remove the plates. “Dear God baby is there more?” Brianna asks. “Just dessert.” Chase responds and then says with a smile, “Unless you don’t want it” “Nooooooo I want it.” Quietly escapes Brianna’s lips, as she settles back down into her chair and sips her wine. Chase returns the plates to the kitchen and then adds the ice cream to the piping hot brownies and returns to the dining room. Brianna looked like she could cry as she looked at the plate in front of her. “It’s beautiful” she says. Chase just smiles and waits for when she began to eat it and discovered the hot fudge filling that was hidden just under the surface. After dinner was complete, he sent her away to the living room with a newly filled glass of wine and then retired to the kitchen to clean up everything.

When he returned to the living room he found a smiling Brianna reading a book, curled up in the corner. She looks up from her reading and says, “Dinner was absolutely amazing and I have no idea how I am going to be able to top that but I am gonna try. But something is still not right, why are you smiling like that?” “Because the night is not over yet” he says slyly with a smile creeping deeper into his face. “Would you like to go see a movie,” Chase begins then violently rips his shirt off as the music changes to a club mix perfect to dance to, “or a show?” Brianna flushes with excitement and then growls under her breath “Oh a show please please please.” Chase then begins his work. Showing off his gym body and dancing for her like she has never been danced for before. Slowly he worked his way around the room, ever returning to just outside her grasp, as he removed his clothing and was down to nothing but a jockstrap, bulge growing the more he danced. “Do with me what you will” Brianna almost slurred, “I want you bad.” Chase didn’t need telling twice as he picked her up and flipped her upside down, her dress fell away and he ripped her panties away with his teeth and began his work as he carried her to the bedroom. By the time their journey was complete, Brianna was already shaking and screaming with pleasure. Chase flipped her back over and laid her gently on the bed. “Take off your clothes,” he commanded, “we have some work to do.” Brianna needed no more prompting. In a swift movement almost faster than he could see, she was laying there waiting on him to ravage her, juices already flowing from deep in her pussy begging him for more. He smiles and he climbs into the bed with her and puts his head between her legs and goes back to work. Slowly and teasingly he begins to nibble at her, kissing and caressing the folds, taking in the musk and taste of his love. With every nibble her entire body shakes, she begs for him to slide in his tongue, a finger, his cock, something, anything, she could not stand it any more. He simply stands up from the bed and tells her “If you want me, you have to work for it, I don’t come cheap” And with one swift motion she jumps from the bed and tackles him to the floor. Laughing he picks her up and throws her back on the bed, but she is having none of it. She grabs him by the shoulders and throws him back on the bed, runs to the closet and ties him down tight. She reaches down and rips the jockstrap from his hips freeing his large throbbing cock. As soon as the cool air of the bedroom hit it, it stood straight up saluting her beauty, begging to be a part of her. “Oh someone’s happy,” Brianna says with a smile as she reaches down and grabs the base of the shaft and slowly slides it into her mouth and begins to work up and down the shaft. Chase struggled against the ropes as he writhed in the pleasure her head bobbed up and down taking in almost all of the length of his throbbing member. Slowly she withdrew him from her mouth and turned her attention lower on his body. She worked her way down the shaft kissing and licking her way to her destination. She began to work his shaft up and down as she sucked and licked his balls preparing them for their job to come. Slowly she continued to work her way down and decided to have him turn over and get on his knees and tied him back down to the bed. She began to wonder if she should pull out her own surprise that she had but decided to think a little more on the matter. She went back to work on what she knew would drive him almost as crazy as he drove her before stopping. She spread his ass cheeks apart and slowly took her tongue and licked from the base of his cock, across his balls and up his taint, stopping only when she had reached his hole and teased it with her tongue. Faint moans could be heard coming from his face buried in the bed. “Please put something in” he cried, “Make me feel good baby” Brianna laughed at this because she had begged him for exactly the same and he had just laughed and walked away, but Brianna was the kind of woman to get what she wants as well as give what she wants others to have. So she decided it was time to get out her surprise. She went over to her closet and reached into the back and got out a decent sized box and removed its contents. She had found this online some time ago and got it and didn’t know when to bring it into the fray but now was definitely the time. She fastened the harness to her waist and then slid part of the device into her. She moaned softly as it slid in. Oh yeah she thought, this is going to be amazing. What Brianna had purchased was normally for lesbian couples but she thought that it would work just fine for them. The way it worked was mostly like a normal strapon but there was a part that also went inside of her so when she trust it would penetrate both him and her, a win-win scenario in her mind. She slowly opened and relaxed his hole using one, then two, then three fingers. Waiting on him to get used to the last before going on to the next. Brianna then leaned down to the moaning Chase on the bed and whispered in his ear, “Ready for your surprise?” Chase couldn’t even respond, he was in heaven from the stimulus to his prostate as well as his shaft. Slowly she pressed the head of her cock against his ass and it slowly began to slide in. A muffled moan could be heard coming from the bed and she slowed because she was unsure of whether it was pleasure or pain. “A faint dont stop” was heard from the bed in front of her so she continued. She slid all the way in the slowly started to slide out. She couldn’t believe how this felt for her. She had the pleasure of the other end of the device inside her and the power that she felt being in control. After a few minutes she came for the first time, bucking and thrusting she slammed her hips hard into him and buried it deep inside and it buried deep inside her. She almost passed out from the pleasure. She slowly slid out of him and removed the ropes and the strapon. He slowly flipped over and saw what she had in her hands. “What a dirty little girl you are” he said through a sly smile, “now you have to be punished for hiding that from me all this time.” She swayed in her post orgasm bliss but words that did not sound like her own came from her mouth. “Oh yes baby, punish me please. I have been a very bad girl.” He needed no other prompting than this. He threw her back onto the bed and dove back face first to prepare her for round two. Slowly he kissed and nibbled at her, this time he took the time to suck and nibble on her clit and she screamed in pleasure as she wrapped her legs around his head holding him tight against her dripping pussy and came again this time he felt the welcoming flood of hot cum from her body as she squirted like a fountain. She screamed at the top of her lungs in pleasure and he took his opportunity to continue, as long as he kept stimulating her she would keep cuming. Quickly he flicked out his tongue and slid it deep inside her and drug it back and forth across her g spot. Her body flailed as she continued to cum and continued to squirt. Shaking like a seizure while he continued to nibble and lick his way into her. When he finally stopped she relaxed her legs and he was free to do what he wanted because she could not move to stop him. He spread her legs apart and slowly slid the tip of this now rock hard throbbing cock against the opening of her pussy and she jerked like she had been struck by lighting. “What’s the matter?” he said, “Can you not take your punishment?” “Fuck me” she screamed, “Fuck me so hard i will never walk again!” He slowly entered her and felt the steaming hot lips of her soaking wet pussy begin to pull and tug at his cock begging for more of him to come inside. When he had slid all the way inside her he slowly began to thrust in and out. Brianna’s eyes rolled into the back of her head as she started to moan. “Harder!” she begged, “Faster!” Slowly Chase picked up his pace until his hips were nothing but a blur. The only sounds that could be heard was the moaning of Brianna and the slapping of skin on skin. “Fuck me” Brianna screamed as she came time and time again, “Please baby you know what I want” Chase knew all too well what she wanted and she was going to get it and get it and get it. Just when she thought she was going to pass out from the pleasure Chase asks “Are you ready for it baby?” “Oh God yes” she screamed as she came again, “Fill me up” she moaned. Chase with one final thrust, buried his pulsing cock deep inside her and came. Hot silky ribbons of cum flowed out into her. With every heartbeat more flowed into her. Brianna could feel the heat and tingle as his seed entered her body, and she came harder than she has ever came before, locking her legs around him holding him deep inside her until she was ready to let him go. He managed to break free though and picked her up. To Brianna’s surprise he was still rock hard and was still going. Walking out of the bedroom holding her to his chest and thrusting with every step he laid her on the dining room table. Standing he could get the full range of motion out of his hips and used that to his advantage. “No,” she slurred, “why?” “Cause I am not nearly done with your punishment yet dirty girl” he replied. He started again slowly and at that point Brianna no longer cared. She was in pure ecstasy, every thrust from him was another wave of pleasure. Gradually he picked up speed and what seemed like an eternity of cumming he came again. And just like the last time she felt rope after rope of his hot seed sliding into her body and she loved every second of it. He was filling her up and he meant it and she could not complain. “We’re still not done yet” he hissed as he picked her up yet again and carried her to his recliner in the living room and sat down. She was able to sit neatly in his lap and soon realized why he had sat her there. In this position he could slide in and out more easily and the angle of his cock caused every thrust to pound her g spot. With every other thrust she squirted, soaking everything around them and soaking them themselves. She was scared she was going to start getting dry from coming so may times but those fears were put aside as his cum started to shift down and became the perfect hot sticky lube for them to enjoy. Over and over again he slid himself in and out of her. Over and over again she came. Then he grabbed her by the hips and slammed her onto him deeply and came again, filling her up with more of the hot semen she wanted so badly inside. Brianna turned to Chase and asked if they could go back to the bedroom and he complied. He picked her up still inside of her and once again carried her to their destination thrusting with every step. Brianna could show no other emotion other than pure bliss as drool escaped her mouth and rolled down his hairy muscular chest. He gets her to the room and he lays down flat on the bed and tells her it’s her turn to make him cum. Confused Brianna slowly gains her composure and begins to ride him up and down like the only way a cowgirl can ride her stallion. With every wave of pleasure she dug into his chest with her nails and arched her back. The closer she got to what she thought was her final climax the further she leaned into him and toward his chest. Then, without warning, Chase shifted his position slightly and with every buck of her hips she was riding her g spot along his shaft and with ever time she bottomed out on his cock her clit hit his pubic bone. She was in heaven. She moaned and screamed as she came and bit down onto his chest to keep herself steady and to keep from passing out. Chase, feeling this bit, was thrown over the edge again and came once again. Emptying his balls into her one final time or so he thought. He slowly turned them over and slid out of her. He tells her that he has at least one more orgasm for her before they are done. He bends down and starts eating the cum out of her still tingly pussy. Brianna cannot contain herself anymore and throws him on his back and sits her pussy down on his face and stuffs his cock in her mouth. By god if she was going to cum again so was he. Chase tongued and nibbled and worked almost every drop of cum from inside her, causing her to cum and cum and cum, by the time that he had finished his task of cleaning her up she couldn’t hold herself up anymore and put her entire body weight on his face. He loved this and started thrusting his hips trying to get her to go faster, trying to cum, trying to finish what he had started. With one final thrust he came right down her throat. Shot after shot, went straight down and into her. With Brianna’s full weight on his face his tongue was able to go deeper than ever and he lapped up the sweet sweet pussy juices that he had been milking out of her all evening and with one final wave of pleasure Brianna came and passed out. He slowly slid his tongue out of her and rolled her onto her side where he then slid his now softening cock out of her mouth and began the cleanup process. “Fuck it” he thought to himself, “we can finish cleaning up in the morning when we take a shower before round 2.” and curled up behind her and went off to sleep.

The end.

My Initimate experience with a stranger

When we first met we were total strangers.  I visited a family relative and there you were again lusting after me with your eyes.. I notice your prying eyes stripping me so boldly.. It got to me I asked you if you had a problem? You replied I need to speak to you outside.! I responded ask me now.?

He stepped to the door with slight smerk on your face you answered me softly "dont keep me waiting! " I was eager to hear what was on his mind so I went..

We walked and walked until we enterred another house on the property and then he openned a door which entered into his bedroom.

He offered me something to drink,  i dranked it while he stripped me again with his eyes. I said to him stop it! What is it?  He smiled! You are beautiful he said!   Is this why you wanted me alone…. He said no and suddenly he pinned me firmly to bed kissing me with authority,  i tried resisting him he hold me firml with his body.. He whispered in my ear you smell nice!  Not giving me a chance to respond he filled my mouth again with his tongue… His touch was soft and his smell was breath taking.. He teased my body with his hands spreading my thighs with one hand search my inner thigh for conformation of his touch.

He then kissed me with control he knew had me,  he used his mouth to exposed my breast he gentlely allowed my body to reacted to his every movement.. I lost control of my body,  my body arched more towards him as his hands and lips tease me.

He entered me,  he was hard and long,  he felt good no he felt great, i gripped his back tightly as he stroke me gently over and over he kiss me.. He pulled me into him tightly he said I tastes sweet.. My body lost control and I screamed uncontrollable.  He kissed me and said my turn. At that very moment i was flipped over as if i was a pillow.

His strokes became more firmly as he hold me in place he pushed my back down and he even went deeper and deeper.   He told me i was warm,  tight,  and really wet… It made me moan more for him!  I told him stroke me hard and he did,  i begged for it harder and he did and then i felt a viberation,  he then laid beside me and ask if i wanted more but all i wanted to do was scream some more because out of no wear my body lost control and he watched me lose control. 

My first intimate moment with my stranger…!

Jim bought Kate locally made hard milled organic soaps by Hawk Moon Soaps with names such as Pink Clover.

She dressed and explored her new home for at least the next year.<span>&nbsp; </span>Going room to room Kate was thinking, &lsquo;The d&eacute;cor and color scheme in most of the rooms in this house are very masculine in flavor and seem to emanate testosterone. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">All the furniture is heavy and massive.

You can then stand in the corner, sissy boy. When I&rsquo;m done with my tea you will be spanked again with my hairbrush,&rdquo; and this caused Kate to get silly and laugh out loud.<span>&nbsp; </span></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">&lsquo;If nothing else the sissy boy&rsquo;s mother has good taste.

The kitchen and bathroom floors were tile. With the exception of her room, the wood floors had the oval sectional rag wool carpets of Jim&rsquo;s rustic and masculine taste. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">Kate&rsquo;s room had a genuine hand woven wool oriental rug. There was a genuine Tiffany floor lamp next to the huge floral and cherub carved mahogany poster bed that was the centerpiece of the room. There was a matching Tiffany table lamp on her makeup vanity table with the carved mirror and matching carved chair. Add the lace curtains and the heavy brocade drapes on her bed, that where identical to the canopy and curtains &hellip;perfect.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">There was a mahogany floor to ceiling wardrobe with mirrors on the inside of the doors. There were two dressers of mahogany carved to match the rest of the bedroom furniture.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%"><span>&nbsp;</span>Kate explored the three story house, an historical landmark, and a house that she secretly coveted. Kate went from top to bottom; from stem to stern looking through every closet and drawer. Kate even went up in the enclosed widow&rsquo;s walk going outside on the roof near the railing to look over the neighborhood through Jim&rsquo;s Swarovski binoculars and telescope. Kate didn&rsquo;t recognize the brand but she recognized their quality when she handled them. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">No doubt the troll wanted the house cleaned from top to bottom and stem to stern and here is<span>&nbsp; </span>where Kate started after going downstairs for the Murphy&rsquo;s Oil soap, a bucket of warm water, rags, glass cleaner, paper towels, a broom and dustpan.<span>&nbsp; </span></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">Kate cleaned the inside of the widow&rsquo;s walk from ceiling to floor, returning with glass cleaner to do the windows inside and out. Kate noticed one of the windows was sticking.<span>&nbsp; </span>She would have to talk to Jim about that. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">Next Kate tackled the finished attic, opening the windows on both ends for a cross breeze. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">&lsquo;This attic is a disgrace,&rsquo; she thought, &lsquo;just look at all this dust and clutter; boxes scattered about including on top of the billiard table.&rsquo; </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">Kate moved boxes and swept and dusted. Kate then vacuumed intending to wash walls and mop the floor after checking in with her Probation Officer. Kate lifted the corner of the nylon tarp to check the surface of the pool table. She was pleased to see it still in excellent condition. Kate loved playing pool and was quite good at it; as it turned out much better than Jim. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">Kate went to the kitchen to make to the telephone call to get his voice mail. She reasoned that was good enough for now. Being a little hungry Kate ate another banana, <span>&nbsp;</span>a can of tuna with celery, red onion, lemon juice, black pepper mixed in on top of saltine crackers.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">She <span>&nbsp;</span>drank three glasses of water while sitting at the table and compiling the grocery list. She reasoned that it would be good to get into her routine again even if it wasn&rsquo;t her real home. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt; line-height: 115%">Kate made a mental note to discuss removing all the contents of the beat up cardboard boxes and plastic garbage bags in the attic to put them into plastic storage tubs with lids so that they could be stacked.

Encouraged by this, Kate started trying out different recipes and dishes, something she wasn&rsquo;t able to do when she was married. </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">The ex was an extremely picky eater who would throw a tantrum if she broke the yolk on his egg.

Jim took all of his meals at a properly set table with her. He never sat in front of the television to eat, like some people, the ex-asshole. </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">Jim was considerate. He picked up after himself. He wiped out the tub and shower with his bath towel when he was done bathing, put his dirty clothes in the hamper&hellip;.little things like that. </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">Jim hadn&rsquo;t demanded Kate perform her wifely duties to date although out of the blue when she least expected it Jim would grab Kate and kiss her lips leaving her flustered.</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">The garage along with that stupid car remained his domain. <span>&nbsp;</span>Jim kept it locked when he wasn&rsquo;t home. This made Kate very curious. She wondered what the big secret was; especially since there wasn&rsquo;t a thing or place in the house she wasn&rsquo;t intimately familiar with. </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">*************************************</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">Baseball season was over and Kate had been living with Jim five months.

Kate started joining him for that and after the news they would watch the game show &ldquo;Jeopardy&rdquo; together. Kate was quite good at it and was surprised Jim was too. </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">It was a race to be first to answer the question correctly out loud and they started keeping score. </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">Interestingly enough Kate started to realize Jim had other interests and knowledge beside baseball and the stupid car he was restoring, thinking, &lsquo;Yes we make small talk during meals and in a way I look forward to being grabbed and kissed; Jim is so damn strong and powerful.&rsquo; </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">Kate realized that she underestimated him.

Officer Jervis couldn&rsquo;t do anything about her curfew; that was part of the plea deal <span>&nbsp;</span>written in stone. </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">If Jim insisted on a surrogate wife he should be home on the weekends with her, and at the very least tell her where he was going. </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">Kate reasoned that she cooked and cleaned for Jim like a wife and therefore they could play billiards, the next step in doing things together on Saturday plus other interests to cover Sunday. She might even let Jim win; it would be good for his ego. Kate assumed that being married once made her an expert on all men&rsquo;s egos. </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">*****************************</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">The following morning was Saturday and their shared birthday.

You shouldn&rsquo;t be cooking on your birthday. Would you like to join me for breakfast? I&rsquo;ll wait while you get dressed.

She procrastinated and pretended to arrange the magnets holding the notes and newspaper clippings they put there to talk about during meals. </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">Kate was waiting for her birthday kiss.

Pampered and well cared for it felt good in her hands, &lsquo;I haven&rsquo;t had a good trim in almost six months&hellip;.I&rsquo;ll ask Jim if he has the time to take me.&rsquo; </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">Kate loosely put her hair up before going into the shower not wanting to get it wet. She washed quickly with the lavender oat meal soap. She came out with a towel around her middle to find Jim was sitting on her bed. </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&ldquo;You look beautiful with your hair pinned up, Katherine,&rdquo; Jim said getting up from the bed.

It was a demanding uncompromising look that made her skin tingle. </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">The look said Jim would have his way with her if he chose to do so. Jim was addressing her as Katherine on his terms as if Katherine was another woman and separate from Kate, a woman to be savaged for his unbridled lust. </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">If nothing else. Jim could be very intimidating when he was angry, and even then Jim was slow to anger. Kate attended a few of his team&rsquo;s Little League games in the evenings or on Saturday to get out of the house and sometimes worked in the volunteer refreshment stand. </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">During one of those games an asshole father from the opponent&rsquo;s team didn&rsquo;t like a call that the Umpire made against his son. The classless father became loud, obnoxious and vulgar. He almost had Jim&rsquo;s pitcher in tears.</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">Jim stopped the game by walking out to the pitcher&rsquo;s mound. He whistled loudly and sharply through his fingers. All of his player&rsquo;s in the dugout and on the field ran to the pitcher&rsquo;s mound. They formed a circle facing the crowd around their distraught team mate closing ranks. </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">Jim made an announcement that the game wouldn&rsquo;t continue unless the loudmouth left the property. Jim&rsquo;s team could forfeit the game per the rules of the league, but in this case the loss was really a win. </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">That obnoxious loud mouth was a rather large man. Apparently he thought himself a tough guy and a local celebrity. He ran out onto the field and grabbed Jim&lsquo;s team jersey in both hands. Jim nodded and smiled. </span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">Jim put one hand on the idiot&rsquo;s shoulder and clamped down like a vise, squeezing the man&rsquo;s shoulder near the collar bone. In a manner of seconds the loud mouth was on his knees in excruciating pain, and seconds after, with a broken collar bone as Jim continued to apply pressure.</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">Katherine unconsciously put her arms up covering her breasts and holding the towel in place remembering how easily Jim handled that obnoxious fool, thinking, &lsquo;Not that Jim would hurt me but&hellip;?&rsquo;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">Jim took both Katherine&rsquo;s hands and put them behind her back holding <span>&nbsp;</span>Katherine&rsquo;s little hands in his huge left one. Katherine was almost breathless as he held her close to him. She could feel his hard cock pressed up against her. It felt anything but tiny as he leaned in to kiss her lips&hellip;.Jim was giving Katherine hot flashes and she could feel her face flush.</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="line-height: normal" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 18pt">&ldquo;Your eyes are as green as emeralds, Katherine.

Or these silk panties undergarments next to my creamy white skin. The ex never gave me undergarments like these, he lacked the imagination.

My Beautiful Brianna 1

If some of you visit other sites, you may or may not recognize my username. Please note that the stories I am posting now are ones that I have written. I am the original author of them. Please enjoy..

This is a romance series, that being said, there is no sex in this chapter. Please keep that in mind. Sex doesn’t start until chapter 2.

Growing up my parents and I moved a lot. It kind of sucked to be honest. The thing that sucked the worst about it was the fact that I was held back a year in high school. I should have graduated a few months after I turned 18. That didn’t happen. Instead I was 18 when my senior year started.

It wasn’t all bad though. Reason being was that I got a head start in my chosen profession. During the Summer break I attended the academy and got my certifications. Once I had all of the needed certs, we ended up moving again. I was getting very tired of it. We moved on average of twice a year. And although I wasn’t sure, it seemed it happened when I started to find good friends and a girlfriend.

We moved to a small city and I got a part time job, and started volunteering for a local fire agency. I was excited as hell. They didn’t hire me part time since I hadn’t graduated high school yet. They knew I had a burning desire to do this and I was 18, so they helped out. They were also very impressed with the fact that I had already finished the required classes.

During the time I attended the academy, I had spent a lot of time and money getting tattoos between my studying sessions. I had saved enough money to save for school and my tats. My real father was Polynesian. My mom was as white as they come. I was very fascinated by everything I found out about the culture I was part of. I spent many many summers with my father in Hawaii and learned a lot about the culture and everything. All of my tattoos were all of family history and such.

When I started at the new high school to hopefully graduate this time, I was told to wear long sleeve shirts and jeans to cover the tats. I had poly tats on my chest, back, full sleeve on the right, half sleeve on the left, my family symbol down my entire right side and and tats on my legs. The chief of the dept I was a volunteer at, met with the school board and principle also. Basically the deal was made that I keep my pager on, and respond to structure fires, or anything major. Anything else I stayed in school. My teachers and principle thought it was awesome to have a firefighter attending school there. The school was 4 blocks long and my classes were all over. They had made quite a few parking spots for me to park in, so I could to get to my vehicle fast should I get paged.

My name is Adam, I am 6’1 and 200 pounds. Since I only had half poly in me I was still pretty white. I was perfectly ok with that. I didn’t play a lot of sports but I was in very good shape. I have dark brown hair and green eyes. I started to work out when I was 14, and kept going. Now that I finally get to finish high school I was excited. If my mom and step dad were to move, I was planning to stay. I didn’t give a damn what they said. My resolve to stay no matter what only strengthened when I saw someone that just seemed to snatch my attention.

The first day of school, I was sitting in the schools foyer waiting for the class to start. As I sat there I looked up to see this girl walk In. She was a petite blonde girl. When I looked at her it seemed like the whole world disappeared. I got butterflies and my palms began to sweat. I could not believe how gorgeous this girl was! Oh my god, I thought as I looked at her. I couldn’t take my eyes off of her. She started to look my way and I looked away fast. I did see her look at me. It seemed as though she stared at me for a minute.

I started to see her around a lot and just couldn’t believe how beautiful she was. I’m sure you can relate. You see someone, and you can’t help but just look at them. There is just this thing about them that you can’t figure out. All you know is that they have captured your attention and it’s hard to forget them. Anytime they get near you, you get nervous, and you get butterflies in your stomach. The hair on the back of you neck stands up, but in a good way. Yeah, that’s what it was like with this girl. My good lord she was so damn beautiful! I was, for lack of a better word, mesmerized by her. The problem was, I was a nice guy. Guys like me get very nervous, and our balls seem to disappear around girls like her. I didn’t have the balls to even say hi. I was very intimidated by her beauty.

You see there are two types of women. Those that are gorgeous and know it, who guys fight to be with. Some guys are good ones, others, not so much. They are very popular with the male populous of the school and seem to be nice girls. They are the ones that go from one boyfriend to another then another. I’m not saying they’re sluts, I’m saying that they are just that beautiful and confident. That’s a really good thing. They are also the ones who end up with douche bags and are in on again off again relationships for years on end.

Then there are those like the girl that I really like. Their beauty alone can light up a dark room as they step in. The ones who are so gorgeous, yet don’t realize it. They are the ones who mostly attract the big douche bags. Those said douche bags tell them what they want to hear, and as soon as the douche gets what he wants, he shows his true colors. The thing that sucks ass is, nice guys like me are left alone because all men, including us are branded as assholes. And believe me, this girl had a hell of a lot of douche bags trying really hard to be with her. But for some reason she refused all of their advances. It was painful even for me just to watch how blatantly she rejected them. One of them called her a bitch and it took every bit of energy I had to keep from going over there and rearranging his face.

This same girl had a hell of a lot of female friends. As the school year proceeded, I noticed that they started started to follow me around before and after school, at lunch time and some times between classes. At the time I didn’t know it was her, but one day before the "stalking" began I heard a very sweet little voice say "oh my god that’s him. He is so hot!" I looked out of the corner of my eye and saw her and all of her friends looking at me. I even had a couple of her friends come up to me out of no where and ask me what my name was.

During all of this, a new quarter in school had just started and I started my first hour class. My heart skipped a beat when I looked up and watched her walk in. The entire room lit up when she walked in. She sat next to me and my palms started to sweat. What the fuck, I thought. I’ve had plenty of girlfriends, but I have never, ever had a girl affect me like this.

She was about 4’9 and couldn’t have weighed more than 85 pounds. She had long blonde straight hair. She had big beautiful blue eyes. She had the cutest face I had ever seen in my life! She had a very nice athletic little body. She had pale white skin, and god did she smell good. As I sat there, I could see her staring at me through the corner of my eye. She just stared and Looked a way for a few seconds. I got even more nervous. I looked over at her and she smiled. I smiled back. So I decided to grow some balls.

"Hi, I’m Adam." I said nervous as hell.

"Hi I’m Brianna." She replied.

She extended her hand to me and I shook her hand. Her hand was tiny, and very soft. I noticed that she was shaking. She seemed nervous as hell. She had the sweetest little voice. She sounded like a little girl. I melted right there when she spoke. My god her smile was so beautiful! Is there anything about her that isn’t beautiful? I thought.

"So are you like, the firefighter guy that everyone is talking about?" She asked with a shaky nervous voice.

"Yeah I am." I replied.

"Do you like doing that?" She asked.

"I love it." I replied.

"So why are you here?, like, why are you still in high school?" She asked

"Oh god. It’s a long story. My mom and step dad move around too much. I didn’t get to graduate because of it. I’m determined to get my diploma. I don’t want a G.E.D.. I want my diploma." I replied.

"That’s admirable, So the fire department is ok with you working for them?" She asked.

"Yes they are. This last Summer I went through the academy, and I applied and have been there since." I replied nervous as hell, not believing that she was even talking to me.

"That’s like, really cool. All my friends want to meet you." She said.

"Why is that?" I asked.

"Well they just like firefighters". She said.

We talked until class started. I found out that she was only 16 and she was a junior. She moved up a grade because she was very smart. The class was long and boring but sitting next to Brianna was making it well worth it. Once we got close to the end the teacher let us socialize. Brianna and I just started getting to know each other. But during class, I kept looking at her to admire her absolute beauty. When I wasn’t looking she would look over and stare for a few seconds. Many times during the class our eyes would meet and we would just smile. Once the class ended I started to walk out.

"Hey Adam, wait for me." She said.

I turned around and she was walking up to me with a big smile. We walked down the hall together. My next class wasn’t that far away, and apparently neither was hers. We chatted the entire time we walked. I walked her to her next class and then went to mine. I could not concentrate. All I could think about was her, her gorgeous face, her hair, and her big blue eyes, her voice, and just how beautiful she was in general. That hour dragged on. I was hoping too see her again. Just before that second period started I just sat there thinking about Brianna. I had a girl to my right who was obviously popular.

"So I saw you with that little slut Brianna. Why are you taking to her anyway." She asked.

"Woooooww. Do you even know her or even me for that matter?" I asked. With an astonished look on my face.

"No not really, but I know you’re to good for her. You should go out with someone like me" She said.

"Holy shit! Are you kidding me?!" I asked even more shocked by the nerve of this girl.

"No I’m not, look you’re like this mega hot guy, with a mega hot bod and yo…." She said as I interrupted her.

"Look you can stop right there. You were attractive until you opened your mouth, so I am going to make it easy for the both of us. I don’t know you and after today I have no desire to even try to. Brianna is my friend, if you don’t like it then, oh wait…who am I kidding…I don’t give a shit. Who I talk to is absolutely none of your concern. I don’t answer to you." I said.

"Why are you being so rude?" She asked floored by my response, and looking like she was about to cry.

"What, it’s ok for you to be rude to someone you don’t even know, but no one can be rude to you?" I asked

She rolled her eyes and did the typical valley girl throat thing.
"What ever, you’re not good enough for me anyway." She said.

"I’m perfectly ok with that. And I would appreciate it if you would pretend that I don’t exists." I replied.

"Your an asshole." She quipped.

"Yes…yes I am." I replied.

What I didn’t realize was, Brianna’s best friend was sitting right behind me. Another thing that I didn’t realize was that she had been texting Brianna telling her everything that happened. Then class started, but I had a hell of a time paying attention to the teacher. Guess why. After what seemed like hours the bell finally rang. I got really really nervous. As I stood up and turned around there was a cute little red head standing there.

"Hi I am Jessica. I’m Brianna’s best friend." She said.

"I’m Adam, I just met Brianna today." I said while chuckling.

"Trust me, I know who you are." She said.

"Really?" I asked.

"Yep! Look I’m really not trying to like, ruin anything, and I hope this doesn’t scare you. But, she really really likes you…like…a lot." She said.

"Really?" I asked.

"Ever since the day she first saw you. She has been like, obsessed with you. She has been like..really bummed because she didn’t think you would ever noticed her." She said.

"Wow, that’s awesome," I said with a a big smile.

"Wait..what? Hold on, you like her too don’t you?" She asked.

"Yeah I do, I like her a lot." I replied.

"Oh my god! Really?!"’she asked.

"Really." I replied.

She squealed and jumped up and down. "You’re not lying are you. You better not be lying." She said.

"I’m not lying, I promise you. I really like her a lot. She is soooo beautiful! I’ve liked her since I first saw her." I replied.

"This is so exciting!! You better not hurt her. She is an amazing person." She said.

"I will do all I can to make her happy." I said.

"You are definitely approved by me!" She said.

"Ok, uhhh thanks." I said as I laughed.

We walked out of the room and my heart almost stopped. She was standing there with her big gorgeous smile. She was waiting for me. Jessica ran up to her and hugged her. Brianna looked at me with great confusion.

"I’ll leave you with your boyfriend." She said as she walked off.

"I am so sorry." Brianna said to me.

"It’s perfectly ok." I said.

She smiled warmly and we started to walk down the hall. I was amazed at how many jealous female eyes were looking at her. She walked me to my truck and I just stood there not knowing what to do. This girl had turned me into a bumbling idiot. That’s how gorgeous she was.

"Well I have to walk to the other side of the building, my next class is over there." She said.

"I have to go that way anyway, why don’t I just give you a ride." I said.

"Wait, you drive from one side to the other?" She asked.

"Yeah, I have to keep my truck close by just in case there is a call." I said.

"So that’s how you get from one side of the school to the other so fast." She said.

"Yep. Sure is, so do you want a ride?" I asked.

"Ok. Yeah I do." She replied.

I am an old fashioned kind of person. I was taught a lot of things by my real father one of which was how to treat a woman. I opened the door for her setting my alarm off. I turned it off and we both just laughed. I was still nervous as hell around her. Once I got in the truck and started driving to my other parking spot, she started looking at all of the switches and the radio.

"What’s all of this?" She asked.

"It’s for the reds and siren." I replied.

"Oh cool!" She replied.

"Where are the lights?" She asked.

"They are all on the outside. I have some on the side, front, back and top." I replied.

By then we were approaching my next designated parking spot, which happened to be right next to the cafeteria. I walked her to her class then went to mine. Lunch was next and she and her friends sat with me. Brianna’s arm kept brushing against mine making me feel warm. She kept looking up at me. At one point I looked at her and she was mouthing the words, oh my god, while pointing at me. Her friends just looked at us and smiled.

A few weeks passed by and me and Brianna had grown far more comfortable around each other. I still got nervous around her for some reason, but it wasn’t as bad. We had also become inseparable at that point as well. She still looked at me the same way she did the day we actually met. She seemed to have her hands on me all the time, which I absolutely loved. We were eating lunch at our usual table.

"You should just tell him Bri." Jessica said.

All of her friends agreed with Jessica urging her to tell me something. She just blushed bright red and looked up at me.

"I will, but not until we are alone." She said.

"Ok, good enough, c’mon girls. Brianna and her boyfriend need some alone time." Jessica said.

They walked off and left us alone at the table. She just looked at me and smiled. We nodded our heads thinking the same thing. Her friends were nuts.

"Hey, instead of you telling me what ever it is you’re suppose to tell me now, how about I take you out on a date. It’s Friday so I figured that if you aren’t doing anything tonight I could take you out." I said nervous as hell….again.

"Ok. I’m perfectly ok with that." She replied.

"Awesome, I’ll pick you up at 6 then." I said.

After school ended I walked her to her friends car. I wanted to take her home, but she said it would be wise to wait first, mainly because her parents would want to meet me. So I went home and called my Cheif and told him that I was going on a date and that I would be unavailable until the date was over. I made it to her house before 6 and walked up to the door. I had a long sleeve shirt and jeans on, so my tats were hidden. I did not want to give off a bad impression my first time in. I was nervous as hell and it showed.

I knocked on the door and her dad answered.

"Well hi there, you must be Adam." He said.

"Yes sir, nice to meet you." I said.

I went in and was Invited to sit. The next thing I knew I was being hammered with questions. I started to relax so I didn’t look like a total idiot. He asked me about my family, where I was from and all the regular questions. Then he asked questions that I actually felt very comfortable answering. When he started to ask them Brianna walked in and looked mortified. She relaxed when she noticed that I didn’t hesitate to answer any of them.

"Have you ever been in a car accident?" He asked.

"Yes I have, but I wasn’t driving. As far as me driving, no I never have." I replied.

"How many speeding tickets have you gotten?" He asked.

"None sir." I replied.

"Ok let me ask this. Most boys your age can’t really answer this question, so don’t feel bad about not being able to answer it yourself. What do you plan on doing after high school?" He asked.

"I plan on working on a career fire department sir, but since the one here is volunteer I can’t. However, the EMS side here is full time I’m going to work for them. I hope to one day hold a high ranking position on a fire department someday." I said.

"Ok, that’s very impressive. You’re the first one who has an idea of what they want. Have you done anything to help boost yourself towards your goal?" He asked.

"Yes sir, I have, I have already completed the academy, and I am a volunteer for the fire department here." I replied.

"One last serious question. What are your intensions with my baby girl?" He asked.

"My intensions are to do all it takes to make her happy, and to keep her happy." I replied while looking into his eyes.

"Ok one last question. "Where the hell have you been, and why couldn’t you have been here when she was 15?" He asked.

"Uhhhhh, I was in Hawaii and I didn’t know her yet." I answered.

We laughed and he put his hand on my knee.

"Look. She is growing up, fast but, she is still my baby girl. Please take good care of her." He said.

"You have my word sir." I replied.

He stood up and looked at Brianna. He walked her to the kitchen and they had a talk. She came out with a huge bright smile on her face. She was absolutely glowing. We got into the truck and left. She was staring at me with that same huge smile on her face.

"What?" I asked while smiling.

"Nothing, I’m just really happy right now. My daddy loves you." She said.

"Really?" I asked.

"Yep, your the first guy who got out of his car to get me, and he says your very mature for your age. Do you want to know what else he told me?" She asked.

"Yes I do." I replied.

"He said that he feels very safe knowing that I’m with you. He says that there is something about you that he really likes. He just can’t figure out what it is. He said that I better not mess things up with you." She said.

"Wow that was definitely not expected." I said.

"I know right?! That’s why I’m like so happy right now. You’re the first guy he has ever approved." She said.

That night was amazing! It was just dinner and a movie, but it was with Brianna. As we sat and ate dinner I just couldn’t stop staring at her.

"What?" She asked with a partial smile.

"I’m sorry, I just can’t get over how incredibly beautiful you are." I said.

She stopped eating and smiled.

"No guy has ever told me that before." She said.

"Were they blind or stupid?" I asked.

"They always told me that I was hot, but never beautiful." She said.

"Seriously Brianna, you are so beautiful. My god." I said.

"Well, you are an extremely good looking, handsome man. I’m being serious, I don’t think I have ever seen a guy as good looking as you." She said.

"Thank you." I said.

"Hey look, I have to tell you something." She said.

"Ok" I said.

"When you first came here, I like, saw you and like, couldn’t believe how gorgeous you were. Ever since then I like, have liked you. Like a lot, like you. I just never knew if you had ever noticed me or not." She said.

"That’s kind of funny because, when I came here and laid eyes on you, I was absolutely floored by how beautiful you were. I still am floored by how gorgeous you are. You know how when you see some one that you think is beautiful, you just feel like your being pulled toward them somehow?" I asked.

"Yes, that’s what you’ve been doing to me." She replied.

"Well, that’s how it’s been for me. I couldn’t breath when you came into the class room, and got worse when you sat next to me. When I noticed you staring at me thats when I knew for a fact that I really had to at least say hi. I just had to get to know you." I said.

"I’ve been obsessed with you. Ask my friends they’ll tell you." She said.

I just smiled. "I kinda like the fact that you’re obsessed with me." I said.

She giggled. We finished dinner and we went to the movies. Our hands were constantly touching. We eventually ended up holding hands. And my arms ended up being wrapped around her. Yeah, the warm and fuzzies were there bigger than shit. After the movie I took her home and we hugged for a long time. I wanted so bad to kiss her but didn’t. I went home kicking myself for not kissing her. However while I was at the fire station over the weekend we called and texted a lot. She told me that she really missed me. I missed her really bad. Her parents brought her by the station and I gave them the grand tour. Her mom wasn’t there when I picked her up for our date, so I got to meet her. She gave me a hug the minute we met.

"So you’re the guy that has my daughter on cloud nine." She said.

"Yes mam." I said.

"That girl is in absolute love with you. You should see the way she lights up when she talks about you." She said.

"That’s a good thing right?" I asked.

"It’s a very good thing, I have never seen her like this before, and she has had a few boyfriends." She said.

"The feeling is mutual." I said.

By then Brianna and her dad came around the corner. I walked up to Brianna and hugged her.

She was all over me the entire time they were there. They met all of the other crews that were there. They even all had dinner with us. When the time came for them to leave, I walked them to their car. Her parents got into the car. I held her and again, like an idiot, I didn’t kiss her. But I had a good excuse this time since our tones dropped. I had to run. She watched as I ran into the bay donned my turn out gear and hopped on the rig. She watched us roll out too.

On Sunday Brianna called me and said that her parents suggested that I pick her up and take her, and bring her home from school. I loved the idea, it just meant that I could spend more time with her. Monday couldn’t have come any faster. I was going crazy, I couldn’t eat or sleep, Brianna had consumed my every thought. I woke up and got dressed. I couldn’t eat breakfast. I had promised her that I would call and wake her up so she could get ready for school. And as promised, I called her. I melted when she answered.

"Good morning beautiful." I said.

"Hey handsome." She replied.

"It’s time to get up sweet heart." I said.

"Ok. I can’t wait to see you." She said.

"God, I know the feeling all to well." I replied.

"I miss you." She said softly.

"I really miss you too." I said.

"Ok I’m getting up. I’ll see you soon." She said.

"Ok. I can’t wait." I said.

"I can’t wait either." She said.

We hung up and all I could do was sit on my bed. Then it hit me. How the hell am I already in love with this girl? How is it that I have been feeling like this about her for so long? I felt this way about her from the very moment I laid eyes on her. I’ve only really known her for for a few months. I mean, I knew who she was but I didn’t know her. She was a very amazing girl and I knew that I had to kiss her..today. Finally, the time came to go pick her up. I got there, parked on the street and walked up to the door. I knocked and her mom answered the door.

"Come in, hey listen, what ever is going on between you two its keeping her from eating her breakfast." She said with a smirk.

"Well, I can’t eat either so she is having the same affect on me." I said.

"It’s so cute seeing her like this. Like I said she has had a few boyfriends, but none, and I mean none of them have ever had this affect on her." She said.

All I could do was smile.

"Listen, you two need to eat, so come on in here and eat, maybe she will actually eat something too before you two go to school." She said.

"Ok, I’ll try. Is she still getting ready?" I asked.

I went into the kitchen and started talking to her 10 year old brother. He was a special needs child. His name was Corey. Boy did he get excited when he found out I was a firefighter! He asked if I was Brianna’s boyfriend, but before I could answer, her mom answered.

"Yes honey, he is your sisters boyfriend." She said.

I just smiled. I started telling Corey some stories of what I had been involved in. He was asking a lot of questions and I gladly answered them. I even showed him a bunch of videos several of which I was in. I was so into our conversation that I didn’t even notice that Brianna and her father had been watching us interact for a long time. I was actually enjoying myself. I invited him to the fire house and that I would let him see our trucks and some of our gear. He was excited as hell! I looked at Brianna’s mom and asked if I could take him up there. Her mom looked amazed for some reason. Her eyes were watery as she said yes that it would be a great idea.

I looked over and finally saw Brianna and her dad standing there. Her dad was grinning from ear to ear. Brianna looked like she had been crying. I stood up and walked to her. I had to hold her, I can’t explain why, I just knew that I had to. I said hi to her dad who walked by me, patting me on my back, and grabbed his coffee. I walked up to Brianna and she wrapped her arms around my neck and hugged me close.

"You never cease to amaze me." She whispered.

Brianna and I finally ate something. The entire time we ate she was all but sitting in my lap. I loved it! I was in heaven the whole time. She sensed it. So her hands went to my lap. I reached down and our fingers connected. I was again holding hands with the most beautiful girl I had ever laid eyes on. We went to school and we walked around like a real couple. Her friends saw us and got extremely excited. They said that we were a very cute couple.

First hour went by and I still hadn’t kissed her. I don’t know why but I had decided to pull my head from my ass and just go for it. Especially since I knew it wouldn’t ruin what we had now. I walked her to her class and hugged her. I started to walk away. What the fuck! I thought to myself. I turned around.

"Brianna!" I said as she had started to walk into her class room.

"Yeah?" She asked as she walked back towards me.

I walked up to her and and got really close to her. I leaned in.

"If I don’t do this I will not be able to focus on anything." I said as I slid my hand gently on her face and neck using my index finger to lift her head. I kissed her soft lips. I looked her in her eyes. Just as she started to say something I kissed her again. Her hands slid onto my face and neck as she started to kiss back. Her thumb on her left hand gently rested on the corner of my mouth. My tongue brushed against her lips then I felt her tongue brush against mine. When I kissed her again her mouth opened and I slid my tongue into her mouth. She kissed me back the same way. We kissed like this for a minute maybe longer. When we stopped kissing our foreheads rested against each others. She was breathing kind of hard.

"Wow." She said.

"How the hell am I suppose to concentrate in school today after that?" She asked looking into my eyes.

"I wish I could answer that." I replied.

"Can I be your boyfriend?" I asked.

"Yes." She answered without a hint of hesitation.

"Can I be your girlfriend?" She asked.

"Yes." I replied.

From there I kissed her again and we went to our classes. Her best friend was sitting behind me again. She tapped me on the shoulder and I turned around. She showed me a text that she had just received from Brianna. "OMG!! He just kissed me! Wow! What an amazing amazing kisser!" It read.

"Is this true?" Her friend asked.

"Yes it is." I replied.

She hit me in my back. "What the hell took you so long?!" She asked.

"I have no idea, but I am so glad that I finally did." I replied.

"So, is she a good kisser?"’she asked.

"Oh god yes. I am not lying! She is…wow! That’s all I can really say." I replied.

The class was dragging on when I decided to send a text to her.

Me: Holy shit, you can kiss! Wow!

Brianna: Look who’s talking!"

We texted back and forth a lot during class. Luckily I have a great memory. At the end of the period I couldn’t get out of my desk fast enough. I walked out of the class room and there she stood with a huge smile. She was again glowing. I kissed her again right in front of god and everyone else. She wrapped both of her arms around my waist and we walked together. We were inseparable unless we were in class. At the end of the day I took her home and we sat in the truck kissing for a very long time. I couldn’t get enough of her kisses. I walked her to her door and kissed her again. We broke the kiss and she held onto me.

"Look I need to tell you some thing. I haven’t been completely honest with you about something." She said.

"You know you can tell me anything, right?" I asked.

"Yes but I really don’t want to loose you so I’ve been scared to say anything." She replied.

"Look, I highly doubt that there is anything that you can say or do that will change anything between us right now." I said.

"Promise me you won’t freak out. I really really need you to promise me. I really don’t think I can handle loosing you right now." She said.

"I promise you I won’t freak out. You have nothing to worry about." I said.

"Ok, do you like, believe in like, love at first sight?" She asked.

"Yes I do." I replied.

"Really?!" She asked.

"Really." I replied.

"Good because like, well when I first saw you, I just couldn’t believe, how hot you were. I ummm, I like fell in love with you when I first saw you." She said.

She was looking down and seemed really nervous, or even scared. I lifted her chin and kissed her. I kissed her like I kissed her for the first time. I stopped kissing her and looked In her eyes.

"Then we both haven’t been completely honest with each other. We both fell in love with each other the second we laid eyes on each other." I whispered.

She wrapped her arms around my neck and kissed me.

"I love you baby." I said.

"I love you too. She said as she smiled really really big with tears streaming down her face.

We hugged and kissed for a little longer. She let go and seemed to have floated into the house. I couldn’t wipe the grin off of my face. I floated to my truck and looked back. She was standing at the window watching me. I mouthed the words I love you to her. She put her hands on her chest and did the same.

That was the beginning of a very good relationship. During the first month I revealed that I had a lot of tattoos. Oh god did Brianna love that! She said that just made me sexy as hell. As time went on we realized that we were a lot more alike than we originally thought. We were both big smart asses and she had an amazing sense of humor. There were more times than I can count that we had each other laughing so hard that we were crying. Hell there were times that I would be driving and almost crashed I was laughing so hard. She had said things that she said would piss any other guy off, but I always played along with it, knowing that she was joking. It was the same way with me. We would act like we were arguing about something really stupid right in front of her friends. One day We were doing it and Jessica asked if we were ok. She was genuinely concerned. Brianna and I just looked at each other for a second then busted out laughing. "You guys are so weird."Jessica said. It was then that I had no doubt that we were meant for each other. That’s how well we meshed together. We made out A LOT! Oh my god it was awesome! I almost blew my wad in my pants A LOT! God I wish I could describe Brianna’s laugh. It had to be thee sexiest laugh I had ever heard!

My step dad and my mom had planned to move yet again. They fought really hard to force me to move with them. That girl I had it out with in the beginning worked with my mom, and had told her a lot of lies about Brianna. She told my mom things that I knew for a fact weren’t true. I even had evidence proving that they were lies. Every time I got a girlfriend, we ended up moving shortly after. There was a huge difference between those girls and Brianna. I was head over heals in love with Brianna. She was my world. My world revolved around her, and I worshiped the ground she walked on. The problem I had was, my mom refused to listen to what I had to say. She chose to believe that girl more. My mom even tried to get me to break up with Brianna and date this other girl. Mom loved her, but when I refused to do that, because I hated her and she was way too full of herself, she decided that it was time to move. I got into a huge fight with my mom because I made it very very clear that I wasn’t going. I didn’t give a shit. After fighting with her for almost 4 hours, I was still refusing to move. She disowned me and said that I wasn’t her son.

That day, after mom broke the news to me that we…well they were moving again, I immediately went and told Brianna and she broke down. I had never seen her sob so hard. Her entire body trembled while she sobbed. It took me a long time to get her to calm down and realize that I wasn’t going, and that I was staying right there to be with her. I didn’t care what my mom said. All I could do was hold her tight as she sobbed. After I got her calmed down a little, I went upstairs to talk to her mom and dad.

"Um can I talk to you guys for a minute?" I asked.

"Sure, is everything ok?" Her dad asked seeing the look on my face. I’m not going to lie. I had been crying as well. Mainly because of how upset Brianna was.

"Ok um, my mom wanted me to move again. She hates Brianna because of some lies that she was told. She told me that I had no choice in the matter and that they want me to get away from her. Here is the problem, I can’t go. I just can’t go. I want to stay here, I need to stay here." I said.

"Why can’t you go?" Her mom asked.

"I’m not sure that you really want to hear this, but I have to stay because I love her." I said as I started to tear up.

Her mom started to cry.

"Look son," her dad said, "we know. We know that you love her, it’s very obvious in how you treat her, and how you act around her. The thing is, she loves you too. My question is, is she the reason you don’t want to move with your mom?" He asked.

"Yes." I said.

"So what does your mom think about this?" He asked.

"She disowned me. She refuses to except the fact that I am 18 and can make my own choices. We had a huge fight about it and when she realized that I was not going with them, aaaand she disowned me." I said.

"I am so sorry Adam." Her mom said as she hugged me.

"So let me get this straight, your own mother disowned you because you refuse to move, because you’re in love with my daughter? Is that about right?" Her dad asked

"Yes sir." I said.

He sighed. "Wow, you really love her don’t you?" He asked.

"Yes I do. So much that it hurts. I can’t live without her." I replied.

He stood up and walked to me. I was absolutely floored when he hugged me.

"She loves you too. You have been the best thing that has ever happened to her, for many reasons. You’re a good man, and I need to let you know that I can’t tell you how much we appreciate what you have done for her. You don’t know this, but you have done a lot for her." He said as he stepped back.

"Here is the thing. She is so upset right now and I can’t leave her. So I was wondering if I could sleep here tonight. I will be more than happy to sleep on the garage floor or in my truck on the street, just as long as I am as close to her as I can be." I said.

"No, you’re not sleeping in the garage, let us talk this over and we will come down and talk to you two when we have decided what we’re going to do." Her dad said.

"Look I know why your mom hates Brianna. There is this girl that you apparently met In class the day that you and my daughter met. Well that same girl started talking to me." She said.

She then proceeded to tell me that the girl started telling some very bad lies about me. Luckily her mom knew me very well. She got in that girls face and told her to shut the fuck up. She told her that I was absolutely opposite of what that girl had made me out to be. Her mom told her that I was a really good man and that her daughter had a lot of problems until I came along. She said that I was the reason that Brianna was no longer on any medications. She also said that she had never seen her daughter so happy before. In short I saved her daughters life. She told that girl that if she ever said anything else bad about her future son in law, she was going to fuck her world up.

I was shocked, flattered, and surprisingly excited that she had called me her future son in law. So in a daze, I went back down into the basement and as I walked around the front of the couch, Brianna held her arms out wanting me to hold her. I held her as she continued to cry. I kept telling her that it was going to be ok. That I was staying despite what my mom said.

After an hour or more, her parents came down. When her mom looked at Brianna, she started to tear up. She walked up and hugged her.

"I love him mom." Brianna said.

"I know you do sweet heart." Her mom replied.

"Listen, this man loves you too. Oh my god does he love you." She said while she pointed at me.

"Ok so here is the deal." Her dad said. "Adam, of any man, not boy, man, because that is what you are, you have been perfect for our daughter. I have never ever heard or seen you disrespect her in any way. She has never been treated as well as she has been treated by you. And the major sacrifice that you are making for her is just huge. To top all of that off you have made her the happiest we have seen her in years. For that we thank you. You’ve done more for her than anyone has outside of this family. So we have made some decisions here. Keep in mind that there will be some ground rules, but I do not foresee any problems here. In light of the decision you made to stay here for Brianna, and what you’re going through, you’re moving in with us." He said.

Both me and Brianna were stunned. We both looked at their smiling parents in total shock! Brianna jumped up ran to her dad and hugged him.

"Thank you daddy!" She said.

"I stood up to shake his hand. He said no, then hugged me.

"You’re like a son to me. I can’t tell you how much gratitude we have towards you for what you’ve done for her." He said.

We then hugged her mom and said thank you.

"Now, you both have had a very tough night, so in answer to your question Adam, yes, but instead of the garage, you’re sleeping in your bedroom right down the hall there." Her mom said.

Secondly, you two have to promise, and I mean absolutely promise that you will behave until we get you on birth control Brianna." Her mom said.

I was floored but so was Brianna. My dick started to swell when her mom said birth control and Brianna in the same sentence. My mouth dropped opened I was so shocked.

"Oh my god….MOM!!" Brianna said shocked.

"Have you two had sex yet?" She asked.

"MMOM!! OH MY GOD!!" Brianna yelled.

"I’m serious." Her mom said.

"No we haven’t." I replied.

"So let me get this straight, you have been together for 7 months now, and you have never had sex." Her dad asked.

"No we haven’t, I’m not ready for that just yet."
Brianna said.

"And you’re ok with that Adam?" Her mom asked.

"Perfectly." I replied.

"Ooooo…and without hesitation. That’s very impressive." Her dad said.

"Ok so are you still a virgin?" Her mom asked.

"Yes I am still a virgin…Oh my god! Why are you asking these questions? You’re my mom and dad!" Brianna said.

"Well we are just curious. You better not keep Adam waiting for too long sweet heart." Her mom said.

"Trust me, I’ll wait for however long it takes." I said.

"Goood answer." Her dad said.

"Ok so we need to get you on birth control as soon as possible because you two will be living under the same roof from now on. So that being said, you have to promise that you two will behave until we get you on birth control Brianna." Her mom said.

"We promise to behave." We both said simultaneously.

"Until what?" Her mom asked.

"Until I get birth control, wait…does that mean that once I’m on birth control we can misbehave?" She asked.

"Well Adam is an adult, and you’re turning 17 soon, which is the age of consent in this state. So that being said, there is nothing we can do to stop you two. We will go see the doctor tomorrow." Her mom said.

"We prefer to not know when you’re misbehaving so try your hardest to keep any moaning and stuff down. We don’t want to hear it." Her dad said as we all started to laugh.

After a while, they went upstairs. It was just me and her. We looked at each other and laughed.

"So we get to misbehave when I’m on birth control." She said.

"I like misbehaving." I said.

"I can’t wait to see how good it feels." She said.

"You’ll like it I promise." I said.

"If it’s with you, I have no doubt that I’ll love it." She said.

"Wow, ok time to change the subject." I said.

"Why what’s the matter?" She asked.

"Because I’m starting to get…" I said as Brianna finished the sentence for me.

"A boner?" She asked.

"Yes I am." I replied.

"Yeah I’m getting really horny now. Let’s change the subject." She said.

She laid her head on my shoulder and snuggled up against me. I looked down to see her looking up at me with those beautiful blue eyes.

"I’m so happy right now." She said as she started to tear up again.

"So am I. I get to live with my baby." I said.

I leaned down and kissed her softly. We just sat there and held each other for a while.

"I gotta go get some stuff. If I don’t do it now, I’m afraid I won’t have anything. So I am going to run to my old place and get it over with." I said.

"Ok hurry back to me baby." She said softly.

"Ok." I said as I kissed her.

I went back to my moms house to get my uniforms and some cloths. I was packing when my mom stepped into the room.

"So you’re going to choose that little slut over your own mom then huh?" She asked.

"For your information mom, she is a virgin, so calling her that is pointless. Second of all, don’t talk about her like that. Wether you like it or not, I love her, that is definitely not going to change. I don’t give a shit what you say or think about it. But yes. I am choosing her over you." I said.

"That’s fucked up, I brought you into this wor…" She said as I interrupted her.

"World and you can take me out. Really mom?! Would you really kill your own son." I asked.

"If I could I would." She said.

"Wow, that says a lot about you. If you’re going to kill me then do it. Otherwise leave me the hell alone." I said.

"You watch how you speak to her young man." My step dad said.

"Fuck off asshole!" I said.

"See, here is why I choose her over you. She loves me as much as I do her. She actually loves my career choice unlike you. She supports me, unlike you do. She doesn’t call me a failure like you have many times because I want to be a fire fighter. And despite what you think, I will amount to something someday, and she believes that." I said.

"You’re wrong, you’re worthless like your father. You are so much like him it’s sickening. You are a sorry excuse for a man." She said.

"Wow" I said laughing.

"That’s rich coming from you. My real dad is worthless, yet he is a multi millionaire, living in Hawai’i. And you know, me being a sorry excuse of man, I’m ok with you saying that because you are the only person who has ever said that to me." I said.

"I don’t know why you didn’t just date Autumn. She would be so much better for you. If you would have just dated her instead of your little slut we wouldn’t be moving." She said.

"Oh so that’s what that bitches name is. And again, don’t call her a slut. Everything you have heard from that cunt have all been lies…oh wait who am I kidding, you don’t believe me. That’s ok. Let me make this very clear since you refused to listen to me and apparently you didn’t get it the first time. I..love..Brianna..I..am..NOT..going. Period, end of discussion." I said.

"Where do you think your going then cause you’re not staying here." She asked.

"Wait, I thought you said that I wasn’t your son anymore. Didn’t you say that to me earlier today?" I asked.

"Yes I did. You’re being selfish." She said.

"I’m being selfish?! We have moved every time I have found a girlfriend. Every time I start getting happy you pull me away from it. You can’t stand to see me happy. You would rather I live my life exactly how you want me to." I said.

"That’s right I do! If you would just do what I want and date who I say you can date we wouldn’t be in this situation. What’s the big difference between her and all of the other girls?!" She yelled.

"And you don’t think you’re selfish?! Really?!" I yelled.

"Look this is the last time I am ever going to so much as acknowledge your presence. The difference between those girls and Brianna is an easy one. I am so deeply in love with that girl that it hurts. I will go to the ends of the earth to be with her. I don’t give a FUCK if you like it it not. I’m and adult now, I’m 18 and that is the choice I have made. I am done with you controlling every aspect of my life. Let me go. I’m not a child anymore, you need to come to grips with that." I said.

"You need to hurry up and get out, and leave your truck." She said.

"I bought and payed for that truck myself, you had absolutely nothing to do with purchasing, insuring, and tagging of it, so no, it stays with me." I said.

"Well I’ll just call the police and tell them that you’re having sex with a 16 year old, and tell them that you stole that truck." She said.

"I wouldn’t be surprised in the least bit if you did that. That’s fine, I’ll wait for them outside. And we aren’t having sex. Oh and by the way, I work with the police every day. They know me very well, so good luck trying to convince them of your lies" I said.

"I am officially done with you. You’re no longer my son." She said.

"You made that abundantly clear earlier." I said.

"Where the hell are you going anyway?" She asked.

"I thought you said I wasn’t your son." I said.

"You’re not, your just a fucking asshole." She said.

"Then where I am going is none of your concern." I said.

I had a bad feeling about staying too long. I think Brianna did as well. She sent me a text asking if I was ok. She said that she was getting a really bad feeling and asked me to go back to her. She all but pleaded. I had already packed all of my cloths and uniforms in big duffle bags, so I left everything else behind and booked it out the door. On my way there I noticed that my step dad and mom weren’t in the living room. They were out of site. Just as I got to my truck I threw everything into the bed of my truck. I hopped in and left. I had no idea why we had that bad feeling, but I wasn’t about to wait and find out. I called Brianna just as I left at a high rate of speed. I let her know that I was on the way back. Some how her parents had that feeling too. Her dad asked if I was ok. He told her to have me park my truck in the garage in the back. Once I got there her dad was in the garage waiting for me. I pulled in and he closed the door immediately.

Her dad helped me carry my stuff down stairs. "Welcome home buddy." He said.

"I cant thank you enough for this sir." I said.

"First off stop calling me sir. Second of all, it’s me who should be thanking you. One day soon you will find out why." He said.

Corey came down excited as hell that I was there. He kept saying that Brianna was taking a shower. We started to hang out while Brianna was taking her shower. I was getting attached to Corey. He had Downs Syndrome. He was an awesome kid. After a while, Corey had fallen asleep on the couch. I turned the TV down, grabbed a blanket and covered him up.

Soon I heard Brianna walking towards the stairs and her mom stopped her.

"Brianna, what the hell. How do you expect him to behave himself when you’re wearing that?" She asked.

"Oh, I didn’t think about that." Brianna said.

"Mmmmmmhhhmmmm, remember you two promised." She said.

"I know mom." She replied.

She changed and came down wearing pajama bottoms and a pink tank top. Her tank top was cut very low and. I couldn’t help but look. God I’m in trouble, I thought.

"My god you’re so beautiful." I said.

She smiled and sat in my lap. We started to kiss and I started to get hard again.

"You’re getting hard again." She whispered in my ear.

"I can’t help it baby, you’re so gorgeous." I replied.

"Maybe you should go take a cold shower." She said.

"Yeah I need to." I said.

She laughed and stood up, go take a shower baby, I’ll wait here." She said.

I left and took a long shower. Now I know it had been a while since I first laid eyes on her, and we had been together for 7 months. But I was still overwhelmed by how beautiful she was. She was tiny but she had an amazing body. Her little ass was perfect. Her tits were small, lucky for her I absolutely love small tits. She has shown her small cleavage a lot, and every time she would have to remind me where her eyes were. She would always laugh, but I could always tell she liked it. I loved her milky white skin. It was so smooth and..I can’t describe in words to anyone how gorgeous she was. Words do her no justice. While I showered that all just ran through my head. My god how lucky can I be to have such an amazing, beautiful, funny and loving girl like her. My god! I must have done something right. Man I am so damn lucky! The luckiest man alive! I could sit and analyze myself to figure out how a girl like her just happened to come into my life. I however, decided not to. Here is why, I had her. She was my girlfriend and I loved her so deeply. And she, loved me the same way. I have to pinch myself sometimes just to be sure that I wasn’t dreaming. Love like this is very rare. But when it comes, you grab a hold of it, and do all you can to keep it. Don’t ever let it go.

My shower took a long time. All I thought about was her. She always consumed my thoughts. I got out of the shower, dried myself off, and dressed. I only wore a pair of shorts, no shirt. When I stepped out I noticed Brianna staring at me. Her mouth was opened and her eyes were wide. She had never seen me without a shirt. Her brother Corey had awoken and said hi to me. I gave Brianna a sexy smile and walked to the room. I grabbed a T shirt and went to the living room.

She walked up to me staring at my washboard abs and my chest. She placed her hand gently on my abs and rubbed them and my chest.

"Jesus…" she whispered.

"What’s wrong baby?" I asked.

"Oh god, nothing. I never realized you had such an amazingly hot body." She whispered.

"And your tattoos. Oh my god. Can I take a picture, I have to show you off." She said.

I grinned as chills started to ripple through out my body. Her soft hands on my bare skin felt amazing. She looked up at me and bit her lower lip.

"And just think, this is all yours." I said.

"God. I am so lucky. Do you realize that you are every girls dream guy?" She asked.

"How is that?" I asked.

"You are so amazing. You’re funny, you never call me anything other than my name, no matter how mad you are at me. You have showed me nothing but respect. Our fights aren’t even like, normal, which I love since I hate arguing. My parents, they absolutely love you. You have no idea how much they love you. Not to mention, you’re tall dark and so so handsome. You have an amazingly hot body, which I didn’t realize till now. You are a beautiful beautiful man. You’re a really nice guy, but your body and hot looks make you look like a bad boy….yum." She said as she just started at my chest and abs.

I kissed her said thank you as she ran her hand and softly across my abs and chest.

"Ok you guys!" Her mom said scaring the hell out of the both of us.

"Adam, UH UH, NO! You are wearing a shirt if you’re going to sleep with my daughter tonight." She said.

"Yeah, how the hell do you expect me behave my self when you look like…well, this?" Brianna asked as she looked me up and down biting her lower lip. Her eye brows jumped a little.

"I’m sorry, I just got out of the shower." I said.

"Look who’s talking Brianna, that outfit you had on before I made you go change, geez. You two are trying to break your promise aren’t you." Her mom asked laughing a little.

We all laughed as I put my shirt on. I’ll keep it on." I said.

From that day forward things returned to normal between Brianna and I. Only this time, we made out very heavily at least two times a day. We did a whole lot of dry humping. There were times that she actually made me cum in my pants, and she orgasmed almost every time. She never showed me her tits because she was afraid that we would loose control. She was on birth control now, but she said that she was still not ready to go all the way. And like I said, I was perfectly ok with that. It got so heated with us that she decided to sleep in her room every night to prevent either of us from doing what she wasn’t ready for.

We also were "arguing" in front of her parents a lot. They had the same reaction Jessica had. Her parents and Corey had started to join in our "arguments". We all laughed our asses off quite regularly. God I loved her sexy laugh!

As the Summer started to come to a close, their family had a family reunion. I was invited to attend so I went. I got to meet all of her cousins, aunties and uncles. I also met her grand parents. They all greeted me very warmly. Many of them had heard all about me from her mom and were very impressed. They did notice a lot of my tattoos the first day I met them. They didn’t even bat an eye at me, in a negative way.

Brianna and I walk in and a lot of female cousins that she had were ogling me big time. I looked down at Brianna and she and I laughed a little.

"Watch out baby, you’re like the hottest guy here." She said.

We laughed again as we walked in. She introduced me to everyone like she was showing me off. Then she introduced me to one of her uncles. He looked very very familiar. He took one good look at me.

"This is my uncle Gary. Uncle this is my handsome boyfriend Adam." She said.

"I know you…where do I know you from?" He asked.

"I have no idea." I replied.

"Well uncle Gary is a State Trooper. He is a cop." Brianna said.

I shook his hand.

"I know now. I’m a Fire Fighter EMT." I said and gave him the name of the department.

"Ohhh shit! I do know you! I’ve ran quite a few car crashes with you." He said. We chatted for a few minutes. He then asked Brianna if he could steal me for a second. He pulled me aside.

"Listen, I don’t know how much you know about her younger years, but it’s not pretty. I will say that when my sister told me about you, I had to meet you and shake your hand. You have changed her almost overnight. I can not tell you how much we appreciate what you have done for her. She has transformed from someone we were very worried about, to a very bright, happy and great great girl. So thank you sir! Not only do you save lives at your job, you saved a girl that we all love. For that, we all can’t thank you enough. Just know that what ever you need, you let me know ok? He said.

"I don’t know what happened, but I figure that she will tell me when she is ready. And you are welcome." I replied.

"As far as everyone in this room is concerned, you are family. Don’t doubt that for a minute." He said as he shook my hand firmly.

I was flattered yet curious as to what happened to her. I was not even going to bring it up. I was going to let her bring it up.

I walked to a group of girls where I heard Brianna’s voice and found her in the middle of the huddle. All of their eyes locked on me making me a little nervous. Brianna laughed at the look on my face just as one of her cousins leaned down and whispered in her ear.

"I know right?!" Brianna said.

I walked up to her and kissed her really good using my tongue.

"God you gotta quit doing that to me." She said slightly out of breath.

That was all done to a lot of girls aws. We ended up having a really good conversations. Then her mom came and grabbed me and introduced me to a lot more family members. They kept saying that they had heard a lot of really good things about me. I actually felt like I was a member of their family. They included me in everything. Many of them told me that I was family.

That night Brianna and I were spending quality time together. Something I always tried to do.

"What did uncle Gary want to talk to you about?" She asked.

"Well, um, he said thank you. Apparently you have been through some really really tough things before we met. He didn’t tell me what you went through, but he said you have been through hell. He isn’t the only one, several of your aunties and uncles have all said the same thing." I said.

"They didn’t tell you about what happened?" She asked.

"No they didn’t. I prefer to hear it from you. But, I don’t want you to tell me anything until you know for sure that you are ready to. I love you, and I want you to be absolutely sure that you’re ready to. I’ll wait for however long that takes. Ok?" I said.

"Thank you so much baby. God I love you so much." She said as she snuggled up against me. The family reunion ended and I felt like I was In Hawaii again. I got so many hugs it wasn’t funny. Several of her cousins told me that she was so lucky to have me. We went home and I was in heaven being with my Brianna during my off days. It was amazing.

School was about to start again and I actually took her and Corey shopping for school supplies and cloths. Brianna made it so damn fun! We were gone all day, and we wanted to surprise her parents. They had already budgeted money for it, taking away from their second honeymoon money. I had called my dad and asked him for money and explained why I needed it. He sent me A LOT of money. Needless to say both Brianna and Corey got some very expensive cloths and a lot of supplies. When we got home, her mom was perplexed at what we brought in.

"Where did you get all of this?!" Her mom asked.

"My boyfriend." Brianna said as her mom looked at her in shock.

"Hey, it was his idea. He just told us to get into the truck and we went shopping for school." Corey said.

"You took them school shopping?!" She asked.

"Uh yeah I did. I just…I wanted to help. You all have taken me in and made me part of your family. I can’t thank you enough. So I thought I would try to show my appreciation by helping out with this. I hope I’m not over stepping my bounds, if I am I apologize, that wasn’t my intention." I said worried that she was mad.

"Oh honey…you don’t need to thank us. And no..you in no way over stepped your bounds. If anything you helped dad and I in a very big way. Thank you so much." She said as she hugged me.

"Did you get them cloths?" She asked.

"Yes he did mommy!" Corey answered. He then proceeded to show her all of his new cloths, some of which were very nice.

Brianna then showed all of her new cloths also and even modeled them for her mom.

We went through the checklist of everything they needed and she looked at everything we got. Her mom then walked off and started crying. She took Brianna around the corner into the kitchen.

"Brianna, I swear to god…I will not forgive you if you don’t marry this man." Her mom said quietly no knowing I could hear her.

"Don’t worry mom. Remember when you said that I would know if he is the one?" She asked.

"Yes honey I do." She said.

"I know I’m only 16, but I just know somehow that he is the one. I am going to marry him someday." She said.

"God I hope so." Her mom said.

Neither one knew I could hear their conversation. Brianna walked back in glowing and smiling. All I could do was smile. I also knew that Brianna was the one. I knew that someday I was going to marry this amazing amazing woman. So the fact that I basically had her mothers blessing, made me so happy that I couldn’t stand it. When her dad got home from work, he had the same conversation with her. Again, they didn’t know I could hear them. Me my Brianna and Corey were all laying on my new king sized bed watching a movie when her dad came calling for her. They stood right outside my bedroom door.

That night Brianna slept with me. God it was so nice sleeping with her in my arms. I watched her sleep just stunned. I was amazed that I had a girl like her who loved me as much I loved her. Every time she told me that she loved me, I could feel it, not just heard it. The way she constantly looked at me always sent chills up my spine. God I loved this woman!!

Summer is Here

<p class="MsoNormal"><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt">THIS STORY IS PURELY FICTIONAL. PLEASE LEAVE COMMENTS AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THE STORY.</span></strong></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Summer is here. Alexis and her family are getting away from the city and are spending the summer at the countryside of Tuscany, renting an old but refurnished villa.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Alexis Cavallo is Italian-Americans as her family is.&nbsp; She has long dark hair and stands at 5&rsquo;7. She&rsquo;s 19 years old, slim, heart-shaped face, hazel eyes and she has an amazingly firm 30D rack.&nbsp; Her ass is perfect. It isn&rsquo;t too &ldquo;chunky&rdquo; or too flat, but the perfect size. Simple to say, she has an apple ass. Round, firm and just tight. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Her mum, Denise is the complete younger version of her daughter.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Long brunette hair, stands at 5&rsquo;8, slim, heart-shaped face, green eyes. She has a pair of juicy, round, natural and still-firm 34F tits. Thanks to her constant exercising and constant gym going personality, her firm tits are still remaining firm, delicious and juicy and her body still remains wildly sexy and slim. She&rsquo;s 40 years old but it is not surprising to assume that she&rsquo;s 25. She is always mistaken as Alexis&rsquo;s older sister. And to add to all that, she has an amazing bubble ass. Every time she walks or runs, her ass attractively bounces that grabbed many attention of men and also women. Many women her age were extremely jealous as most of their body parts began to droop. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Michael, Denise&rsquo;s husband and Alexis&rsquo;s father is not too good looking. He&rsquo;s overweight, thin hair with a bald spot and possesses a huge belly. 55 years old and stands at 5&rsquo;11. He isn&rsquo;t what he once was but he is hugely successful. For a fat guy, he has a thick manhood but length wise, his dick stands erect at 5 inches and a half.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Anyways, the story. The Cavallos has just arrived in their villa and are settled in. The house is amazing. It&rsquo;s hundreds of years old and used during the medieval times. Alexis is sitting out in the garden with her mum while Michael is napping.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;This place is so beautiful.&rdquo; Alexis said to her mum.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;It is isn&rsquo;t it?&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;I think I&rsquo;m gonna go for a walk at the olive oil garden nearby.&rdquo; Alexis said as she stood.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Okay sweetheart, don&rsquo;t be out for too long. We&rsquo;re leaving for dinner in 2 hours.&rdquo; Denise said as she places her daughter&rsquo;s exposed pink bra strap under her white tank top strap.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;I&rsquo;ll be back before then mum.&rdquo; She gave her mum a kiss and left.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Denise left the garden shortly after her daughter went off. She goes upstairs to the master bedroom and finds her huge husband smoking his cigar. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Please don&rsquo;t smoke in here Michael.&rdquo; She said as she takes her tight tits-grabbing t-shirt off to prepare for a shower. Her busty bra-covered tits bounced out freely as she took her t-shirt off, leaving her in her bra and knee-length loose skirt. Michael puts out the cigar and goes behind Denise and grabs her firm and lush tits.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;I&rsquo;m going to fuck you so hard.&rdquo; Michael said.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Not now Michael. I need a show&mdash;&ldquo; before she could finish her sentence, she was pinned down against the table. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;That hurts Michael!&rdquo; she yelled. Michael ignored her. He unzipped his shorts, pulling out his thick cock and forces it into Denise, under her skirt, pulling away her G-string.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Denise&rsquo;s mouth went wide open in pleasure. &ldquo;Ohhhh fuck. Yesss.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;You like that don&rsquo;t you.&rdquo; He said as he fondles her big tits. He pulls her bra off and unendingly massages her soft and firm breasts. Michael may have a big cock, but he lost all sense of stamina. He takes off his shirt, exposing his fat hairy belly and saggy man breasts.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">He kept on thrusting into her. The table was shaking. &ldquo;Faster. Faster please.&rdquo; Denise begged. Denise slowly lost her pleasure. Her husband is too slow.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Meanwhile in the olive oil garden. Alexis walked through the garden and found herself at a stable. There were three beautiful stallions. A white horse, a brown horse and an extremely cute and fit and shirtless Italian stable boy who was feeding the horses.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Alexis walked over by the wooden barrier and couldn&rsquo;t stop starring at the Italian guy.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">A bit of info about him. His name is Luca Bordi. He&rsquo;s worked for the compound for 4 years since he was 16 after dropping out of school. He has short-medium, messy brown hair with blue eyes. He stands at 6&rsquo;2 and possesses a swimmer&rsquo;s body. He is as girls would put &ldquo;extremely cute.&rdquo; He has that boyish but manly look at the same time. At a young age, his cock developed quicker then most other boys. His manhood is measured up to a whopping 10-inch cock. It&rsquo;s one of the reasons why he was forced to quit the swim team in school. The coach though that his huge bulge in his swimming speedos were a distraction to other swimmers. Anyways.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Luca saw Alexis&rsquo;s beauty immediately and noticed a second later that she&rsquo;s looking at him and he panicked. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Mi dispiace signora. Non ti ho visto. Ho dovuto indossare qualcosa di pi&ugrave; appropriato.&rdquo; (I’m sorry miss. I didn’t see you. I should have worn something more appropriate.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Alexis giggled. &ldquo;I&rsquo;m sorry, um, io non parlo italiano.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Pardon me. You look Italian.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;My family heritage is Italian. I&rsquo;m Alexis.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;My name is Luca. I would shake your hand, but uh, my hands are uh, uhm.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Dirty?&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Yes! Essattamente (Exactly) Dirty.&rdquo; He walked over to the barrier behind him where there is a bucket of water and washes his face before grabbing his white t-shirt and putting it on. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;The horses are beautiful.&rdquo; Alexis said.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Yes they are.&rdquo; Luca walked over to her. The barrier is now between them. &ldquo;The brown horse, his name is Luciano, after the great singer, Luciano Pavarotti and the white horse, her name is Montserrat. Would you like to touch them?&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Sure!&rdquo; </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;This way.&rdquo; He leads her to the wooden gate.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;Back at the villa.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Denise is riding her husband. His cock is buried inside her. They&rsquo;re both sweating and panting.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Your tits are so juicy.&rdquo; He grabs them as his wife does all the work of bouncing up and down.&nbsp; Denise receives more pleasure as she&rsquo;s in control. &ldquo;Mhmmm, mmm, yes! Yes!&rdquo; Denise is biting her lips. She holds on Michael&rsquo;s belly for support but in truth, she&rsquo;s only pretending. She is not satisfied at all. She starts moving her hips circularly to try to get more pleasure as it always worked before. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">All of a sudden, Michael pushes her off him and gets on top of her into missionary position. He grabs his small cock and pushes it into Denise&rsquo;s tight pussy. He starts pounding her hard on the bed. The bed was shaking and creaking. Not because of his speed, but because he&rsquo;s fat. His hips are barely moving. His chest is pressing against her busty tits as he goes in to kiss her lips. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">All Denise could do was pretend. &ldquo;Oh yes! That&rsquo;s it sweetheart. Fuck me hard!&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Aaaarghh yes. Fuck you&rsquo;re tight.&rdquo; He grabs her breasts and squeezes them as he fucks his wife &ldquo;hard&rdquo;.&nbsp; </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Ohhhh fuck. Ohhh yesss.&rdquo; Michael is getting all he wants. All Denise is thinking of is &ldquo;when is he gonna cum?&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;I&rsquo;ve got like 5 minutes left. I&rsquo;m close!&rdquo; he yelled as he groaned. He took his cock out and spins his wife around. Denise is on her chest on the bed and in a few seconds, she feels the weight on top of her and felt his cock pushed into her. At least now she doesn&rsquo;t have to make pretend faces. With each thrust into her pussy, her face remains neutral and bored. She felt his big hands grabbing her ass and slapping it. Michael strokes her ass and slides it onto her back and then onto to the bed for support and starts ramming her pussy.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Fuck, I&rsquo;m gonna cum.&rdquo; He moaned.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Finally&rdquo; she thought to herself.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;I&rsquo;m gonna cum in you! It&rsquo;s coming!&rdquo; </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Denise felt his thick, warm sperm shooting into her. Her husband is in ecstasy. He kept on shooting his load for 10 more seconds before taking out his limping dick and collapsed next to her on the bed. She lay down on her bed and sighed.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;That was amazing.&rdquo; Michael said.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;It really was.&rdquo; She kisses her husband and goes off into the shower.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">At the stable.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;How old are they?&rdquo; Alexis asked as she strokes Luciano and Montserrat.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Luciano is 3 years old and Montserrat is 2 years old. A good ages for a horse. So, you come from America?&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Yeah. From New York.&rdquo; </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Oh New York! Incredibile!&rdquo; </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;It is an incredible city.&rdquo; She said.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Suddenly a voice from afar called out.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Luca! L’erba di Villa Donna deve essere tagliato! (The grasses at villa Donna needs to be cut!)</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Merda (shit) My father is calling. &ldquo;Sto arrivando!&rdquo; (I&rsquo;m coming.) &ldquo;I have work to finish.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Oh okay.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;But uh, I wish to see you again. Maybe tomorrow, it is Sunday and it is not working day for me. Maybe I bring you to see the village.&rdquo; He said to Alexis.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;That would be great.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Fantastico. I will pick you up at your villa. Goodbye signora.&rdquo; He smiled and walked her out of the stable and left.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Alexis&rsquo;s heart is feeling warm. Both of them know that there was a spark. She leaves the stable and goes back to the villa.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;I&rsquo;m back!&rdquo; Alexis said as she entered the house.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Hi sweetheart. How was your walk?&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;It went very well actually.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Oh, that&rsquo;s good then. Now, hurry and shower. We&rsquo;re leaving for dinner in 20 minutes.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;I met a boy!&rdquo; she quietly said.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Really?&rdquo; she grabbed her daughter&rsquo;s hands and sat on the couch.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Is he cute? Is he Italian? Is he holidaying as well?&rdquo; Denise asked and asked.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;He is just too cute mom. And yes he&rsquo;s Italian and no, he&rsquo;s not exactly here on holiday. He works for the estate.

What boy?&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;His name is Luca.

Fine.&rdquo; Michael plainly and grudgingly said. He hates the idea of his daughter going out with boys.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Don&rsquo;t worry. Your daughter is smart enough to know what type of boys she should go out with.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Next morning.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">There was a honk. &ldquo;He&rsquo;s here!

Ask him in, we want to meet him.&rdquo; Her mum insisted.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Alright.&rdquo; She goes out to invite Luca in.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;This better be good.&rdquo; Michael said.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">The couple then went out of the villa as their daughter pulls Luca towards her parents. The sun was shining. It was a beautiful day to be outside.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Mum, dad, this is Luca.

She&rsquo;s wearing a tight white tube that was exposing her tight hourglass body and her firm, round tits. Her navy blue shirt is tied around her waist over her tight jeans. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">After a split second, the young boy came back to reality and shook their hands.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Buonjorno, signora e signori.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Denise did not realize that Luca was this delicious and grew very fond of him. Her eyes were wondering over his young, sculpted body. He&rsquo;s wearing a white loose shirt with a pair of shorts and sneakers. His bulging biceps were clearly visible to Denise.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Hi Luca, it&rsquo;s nice to meet you.&rdquo; Denise said.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;You too signora.&rdquo; He smiled.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Call me Denise please.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Bella Vespa.&rdquo; (Nice Vespa) Michael complimented.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Grazie signori Michael.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Should we go now? Alexis hurriedly spoke.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Where exactly are you two going?&rdquo; Michael suspiciously asked.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;I&rsquo;m taking her around my village. It&rsquo;s filled with a lot of history and beauty. And there is also wonderful view of the vineyards and the hills that I would love to show Alexis.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Okay.&rdquo; Michael said.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Let&rsquo;s go Luca. I&rsquo;ll see you guys tonight.&rdquo; Said Alexis as the couple walked towards the motorbike.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Have fun sweetheart!&rdquo; Denise wished while her husband looked on.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Luca, ricordati di portare la schiena prima delle dieci.&rdquo; (Be sure to bring her back before 10.) Michael ordered.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Certo signore. Ciao.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Do me a favour. Tonight when I&rsquo;m meeting my cousins, I know you&rsquo;re not too fond of coming with me and drinking and drinking all night, here&rsquo;s a chance to miss it. Stay here at the villa and just wait and see what time they get back here this evening.&rdquo; Michael suggested.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;It sickens me you don&rsquo;t trust your daughter but fine, anything to avoid tonight.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Hey, come on.

Wait, what?&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;You look beautiful.&rdquo; Luca said to Alexis who is wearing a knee-length flowery summer dress and with a low neckline, revealing her young, firm cleavage. Her long dark hair is let loose.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Here, put this on. Have you ride vespa before?&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;No I haven&rsquo;t.&rdquo; said Alexis as she puts on her helmet.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Good, it will be very smooth. We are going to have fun.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">They got on the bike and sped off.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">After a long day of venturing the village, having home cooked food at Luca&rsquo;s, exploring the old buildings, and getting to know each other more, Alexis and Luca are sitting at the highest point of the village, overlooking the magnificent view. The sun was setting over the hills. The skies are a blend of pink and orange.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;It&rsquo;s so beautiful.&rdquo; Alexis said.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;It is.&rdquo; Luca turned to Alexis.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Sei ancora pi&ugrave; bella.&rdquo; (You are even more beautiful.)</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;What does that mean?&rdquo; she turned to him.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;You are even more beautiful.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Their eyes are locked, Luca&rsquo;s face got closer to Alexis as Alexis to Luca. Their lips met. Their lust for each other is beyond control. After seconds, they broke their kiss. Alexis lays her head on his shoulder as they both look at the sun disappearing into the horizon.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">After spending the day in the village, Alexis and Luca arrived at the villa. Luca, being a gentleman, takes Alexis&rsquo;s helmet off and assists her off the bike.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;I had an amazing day.&rdquo; She said.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Me too.&rdquo; He smiled.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Would you like to come in?&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Perhaps, not a good idea. I do not wish to disturb your parents.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;No, don&rsquo;t worry, they&rsquo;re not home. Thery&rsquo;re uhh, somewhere outside of the estate.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Okay, but do you not wish to have rest?&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">She pushes herself up on her toes and kisses his lips.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;I&rsquo;m fine.&rdquo; Said Alexis.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Okay then.&rdquo; He placed their helmets on the bike and goes into the villa.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Would you like anything to drink?&rdquo; Alexis offered.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;No, I&rsquo;m fine. Thank you.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Let&rsquo;s sit on the couch.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Unbeknown to the couple, upstairs, Denise is in the shower getting soaked. Rubbing body wash onto her breasts, slowly massaging and rubbing them together and in between her cleavage. And onto her face and hair, arching her back, pointing her busty tits towards the shower, removing her shampoo coated tits.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Downstairs in the living area, Alexis and Luca are kissing passionately on the couch. Luca bravely places his hand on her thigh and slowly slid it up, pushing her skirt upwards towards her abs. Alexis rises up, breaking the kiss and pushes him down onto the sofa, straddles him and continues making out, grinding his hard bulge below his shorts. Her hand slowly slides under his shirt, up his abs as she kisses him. Her hand then wonders onto his crotch. Her eyes went wide as she felt his enormous bulge. She breaks the kiss.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Hello there big boy.&rdquo; She sexily said.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">He smiled a she moves down to his huge bulge. She unbuckles his belt and pulls it off hastily. She unbuttons his shorts, unzips it and hurriedly pulls his trousers down to his ankles, revealing his monster bulge in his white boxers, trying to break free. Alexis bit her lips while her hands are still at his ankles, holding onto his shorts. She immediately went for it. Her hands grabbed his boxers and pulled it down. His massive FLACCID 6 &frac12;&nbsp; inch cock, and the width of it, the size of three fingers thick put together, sprung out, it&rsquo;s not even hard yet. Alexis&rsquo;s mouth went wide open. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Oh my God.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;It&rsquo;s a bit too big.&rdquo; Luca said.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;A bit? It&rsquo;s really, really big. It&rsquo;s just, huge. It&rsquo;s such a turn on. It&rsquo;s not even hard yet.&rdquo; She grabbed his cock and started stroking it, slowly becoming hard.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Oh my God, it&rsquo;s getting bigger and bigger.&rdquo; She picks up the paces and starts jacking him off fast on the couch. Luca is on his back against the cushions enjoying it. His eyes are closed and his mouth wide open in pleasure. His cock is now fully rock hard.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Ohhh yes. Your hands are warm.&rdquo;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&ldquo;Fuck, it&rsquo;s fucking enormous.
