Olivia stood in the examining room of the hospital with her
hands on her hips.
"Can you look after your niece or not, Rick?" she
asked. Emma stood there batting her eyes up at him.
"Phillip said no?" Rick asked.
"He has plans tonight and he kept her last night, so I
don't want to impose. Jane is going out of town this weekend
so she can't and it's…tonight is an important meeting I
can't miss," Olivia explained.
"You know she's a basketball shark," Rick said
looking down at Emma with a grumpy expression that slowly
turned into a grin that made the young girl grin in response.
"I guess I can take her," he answered with mock
disgust, "but she's not getting me on the court again! I
learned my lesson!"
"Thank you, Rick," Olivia said relieved. "I
really appreciate it. So will 6 to 10 PM tonight be
"Why not let her stay? I'm off tomorrow," he
suggested. "You okay with that?" he asked Emma.
"Yep," Emma replied. "And I can show you how
you can beat Buzz Cooper at cards like I do."
"And a card shark too?" Rick observed and then
turned to Olivia. "You must be soooo proud."
"That's my girl," Olivia said smugly, giving him
a slight push.
Rick smiled, but then took Olivia aside and asked softly,
"So, what's the story? Another date with Matt?
Really?" he asked.
"You know, Matt is a really sweet guy."
"Yeah, whatever. You could have me, you know? Rich
doctor, successful man, fellow heart transplant recipient –
all here for the asking." He waved over his body in a
Olivia sucked in a breath and clinched her teeth before
speaking. "Ya know Rick, as tempting as that is… I have
to say, sadly, I have a better offer, but thanks. Thanks for
giving me… options."
Rick shrugged. "I'm just saying…"
"I know you are, but really…please don't." He
patted his chest twice in a diplomatic, yet slightly
"You're missing a good thing," Rick retorted.
"I'm sure I am – I'm sure I am." Olivia nodded.
"I'll regret it someday, you betcha. Anyway, uh, 6 PM
then? You'll be off shift?"
"Sure, bring Em back then," Rick replied.
Olivia nodded. "Thanks, I mean it."
"Don't mention it," he told her. "All
unsuccessful flirting aside," he said with a slight grin.
"You know I consider Emma family, right? It's really no
"Thank you. And family or not, your help tonight IS
Rick gave Olivia a pat on the arm as they walked back
"Let me take you gals to a yummy lunch of hospital
food," he said.
"You're on," Olivia replied, bumping shoulders
"You slapped her butt?" Blake asked Natalia in a
conspiratorially tone. The pair sat at the booth at Company
and women began to giggle. "Really?"
"Yep," Natalia said with a nod. "And I
pretty much told her she needs to be there at eight…or else…"
"Or else what?" Blake asked, looking excited.
"I have no idea! I didn't think that far ahead,"
Natalia laughed and Blake joined in. "So what do I do if
she's late?" Natalia asked.
"You know spanking is out of the question 'cause she'd
like it too much. She'd never be on time again in her
life." They continued to laugh and Natalia waved her
hands for them to keep the volume down, but Blake didn't let
up and added, "And you do realize the woman still takes
heart medication, right? You might end up killing her."
Again, both women laughed. "Oh my, who'da have thought
Olivia Spencer likes to play the submissive. Then again,"
Blake reconsidered. "I hear powerful people like it when
lovers take control in the bedroom. You might have your hands
full," she laughed.
Natalia laughed too, but said, "Enough about me…What
about you? What's on your romantic front?"
Blake blushed. "Well, there is kinda someone."
"Really? Who is he?" Natalia asked in a hopeful
tone. "Or am I being presumptuous? After all, you said
you were disappointed I picked Olivia over you."
Blake grinned. "It's a guy. Or at least I think it's a
"Oooookay," Natalia replied confused.
"I've been chatting with him online," Blake
clarified. "I've never met him, but he's…kinda shy.
Says he got burned by love. I told him I'm a young widow, but
not TOO young or too old. He's funny and he's not pushy and…he
sounds really cute."
"He sounds cute? You've never seen a picture of
him?" Natalia asked.
Blake shook her head. "We've just chatted online…but
I did have a question though."
"Okay," Natalia replied.
"How do you know if a woman is into you?"
Natalia chuckled. "Where did that come from?"
"We're talking about dating and I've been meaning to
ask you because… I'm curious if someone might be into
Natalia laughed again. "You're asking the wrong gal. I
didn't know for months that Olivia liked me for more than a
friend. In fact, I didn't know for sure until she told me. I
mean I suspected, but…You should probably talk to Olivia
since she said she was sure I was into her, but she wasn't
about to make a move."
"Wait. She knew you loved her, but she told you to
marry Frankie anyway?"
Natalia nodded. "She was scared too. She wanted me to
have the DREAM."
"You know, the house with the white fence, two point
five children, a spouse who was strong and protective…In the
end, I still have the house, I have someone who loves me –
although she doesn't trust me yet – and she's someone who's
strong and protective. And as for kids…" Natalia rubbed
her belly. "I'm only a half kid shy now on that front,
but maybe I can count Emma as half a kid since she'll be an
adult in the next 10 years. That way I'll be able to say I
have two grown children and…oh my, one in middle school.
Sheesh…." Blake smiled. "Anyway …why the
Blake opened her mouth and then closed it. "Well,
we've got someone – a customer – she comes in and there's
just this 'vibe' I guess you'd call it." Blake shook her
head. "I'm probably imagining it."
"Do you want to explore it?" Natalia asked.
"But I'm not gay," Blake answered.
"Yeah, I told myself that too, which is why I have a
date with one of the hottest women in Springfield
Blake chuckled. "Well, I know my gaydar must not work
because really there is no way this woman is even
interested." Natalia smiled and began to drink her
lemonade. "I mean she went after you and Olivia for
Emma's two mommies report, so I know-." Blake trailed off
as Natalia began to choke. "Are you okay?"
Natalia coughed and Blake rubbed her back.
"Yeah, yeah." Natalia took a drink from her water
glass. Feeling relieved, she said in a low voice as not to be
overheard, "So I'm guessing… Doris Wolfe?"
"Yeah," Blake said as she continued to rub
Natalia's back for a few more seconds. "I know that
sounds crazy. I could always ask Ashlee, I guess, but maybe
she doesn't know - like Rafe, so …I don't know…"
Blake seemed flustered at the prospect and Natalia grinned
and cleared her throat. "Well, let's just say for
argument's sake that Doris was gay, or at least gay-friendly…Honestly,
between us, would you be interested?"
Blake considered it. "No…well, maybe…Actually, I'm
not sure." Natalia giggled at the reply. "I'm being
real decisive, huh?" Natalia only smiled. "You know
it's not like I've never thought about being with a woman. I
mean, just about every woman has, right?" Natalia pursed
her lips and nodded as Blake rolled her eyes. "Look, who
I'm talking to? Okay. Correction. I mean 'run of the mill'
women who don't have dates with hot women tonight."
"I follow you," Natalia replied. "In fact,
Cosmo recently said it's like the number one fantasy straight
"Really?" Blake asked. "So I'm – we're –
"We are not, but there's a difference though. Some
women like to play the fantasy between their ears only. I, on
the other hand…I'm so tired of fantasies – I need some
reality, if you follow me. And the sooner, the better."
"Pregnancy hormones kicking in, huh?"
"Oh my goodness, yes," Natalia sighed in
frustration. "I think that's why I found the courage to
slap her butt. Okay, maybe it's really not bravery. It's just…"
"Exactly! I want her so much!" Natalia clinched
"Down girl," Blake replied with a giggle.
"I'm sorry," Natalia said as she blushed.
"Anyway, back to Doris… If she's game, are you
"Are you trying to set me up?" Blake asked.
"Nooo," Natalia said trying to lie. "Okay,
maybe a little." Blake chuckled. "Look, Olivia knows
her pretty well and Doris said the whole speech wasn't
personal at all – just political fodder."
"I don't want Doris thinking I'm hitting on her,"
Blake remarked. "Not that's she's not worth hitting on
because...she is an attractive woman - nice hair, sweet
smile." Blake shook her head as if to clear it.
"Like I said, it was just a vibe I've gotten."
"Blake, it's simple. Olivia could take her to lunch
and just throw the idea out there – kinda like we're doing.
She could pose a 'what if' kinda scenario. I mean there's no
Blake seemed undecided and then gave a heavy sigh.
"Fine…But this is NOT my idea!" she stressed.
"And aside from Olivia, it doesn't go any further than
this table. Agreed?"
"My lips are sealed," Natalia replied with a
Olivia walked into Towers and saw Natalia sitting at the
bar. Natalia looked at her watch and she smiled. It was eight
o' five, but as she requested Olivia was wearing her dark gray
suit she admired.
"You're late," Natalia pointed out.
"Yeah, I am," Olivia replied, defiantly.
Natalia giggled. "I saw your car in the parking lot
ten minutes ago. You're testing me."
Olivia gave her a guilty grin. "Call it my rebellious
streak. I can't come across as TOO whipped after all."
Natalia reached up and stroked Olivia's face. She could
sense a bit of reluctance at the gesture, but she was grateful
and relieved when Olivia didn't automatically pull away.
"You're here and in the suit I adore," Natalia
replied. "So if waiting five minutes makes you feel like
your 'womanhood' is still in tact, I guess I can live with
Olivia grinned and turned toward the bartender who asked
her, "The usual?"
Olivia looked like she was going to nod, but stopped and
said, "Ice water with lemon please."
The bartender nodded and walked away.
"I told you. You can drink," Natalia said.
"And like I told you earlier, I don't HAVE to
drink," Olivia retorted. "I'm at a place where I can
take it or leave it, and tonight, I want to leave it."
"Fair enough," Natalia replied. "You want to
get a table?" she asked as she pointed behind her.
"There's something I want to speak to you privately
about, and no, for once, it's not about us, but it is kinda
juicy," she said excited.
Olivia's interest was piqued. "What is it?" she
asked with a growing grin.
"You'll never believe it," she giggled.
"So you did it," Olivia said. "You turned
Natalia laughed loudly at first and then covered her mouth
"I did no such thing," she insisted firmly, but
in a soft voice.
"Well, you turned me gay," Olivia teased, looking
serious and then grinning widely.
"You're so bad," Natalia chuckled.
"You're like a…like a lesbo-generator. Any woman
that gets within two feet of you is like 'BAM!' – there you
have it - a friend of Sappho."
"Stop," Natalia told her as she continued
laughing. "You're gonna make the pregnant woman
pee," she warned.
"Yeah, but you love it – well, not the peeing part.
I just know that no matter how much you try to complain or act
indignant, you like my jokes."
Natalia smiled and soaked up Olivia's grin. She took the
other woman's hand in hers.
"Yes, I do," she said seriously, although she
still wore her smile. "In fact, there's very little I
DON'T like about you. But I think you know that already."
Olivia seemed to stiffen slightly under Natalia's gentle
embrace and she slowly removed her hand under the guise of
reaching for her water.
"So, uh, what are we supposed to do? About Blake, I
mean?" Olivia asked.
"I thought maybe you could feel out Doris."
Olivia wore a wicked grin at Natalia's words. "Okay, that
came out sounding dirty," the Latina admitted. "Let
me rephrase: Ask Doris if she'd be interested in Blake. How's
"Sounds less naughty, and therefore, less fun, but
sure, why not?"
Olivia grabbed her cell phone and pushed a button.
"What are you doing?" Natalia asked.
"Calling Doris," she answered.
"Go see her! Don't just ask on the phone. You have to
gauge her reaction."
"What do you mean 'gauge her…'?" Olivia asked,
but before Natalia could reply Olivia had to quickly put the
phone to her ear. "Hey, it's Olivia. You, uh, wanna have
lunch tomorrow?" Olivia looked over to Natalia as if
silently asking that was okay and Natalia nodded. "Okay,
good, Company is fine." Quickly, Natalia started shaking
her head. "Orrrrr, how about Towers instead or even the
Beacon?" Olivia sighed. "If you come to the Beacon
it's my treat…Okay, the Beacon then. How's one o' clock
sound?" Olivia paused. "Yeah, I'm good…Yeah, she's
sitting across from me right now, actually…Doris says
hi," she told Natalia.
"Hi Doris," Natalia said loud enough to be heard.
"Okay, well I gotta go... One tomorrow it is…Bye."
Olivia hung up and faced Natalia. "Why can't I take her
"Blake works there," Natalia answered annoyed.
"And that's bad because…?" Olivia let the
"You're not supposed to be asking Doris directly. It's
supposed to one of those 'what if' conversations, like, 'What
if Blake Marler was interested in going out?' kinda
"Exactly," Olivia retorted. "If Blake is
working behind the counter it wouldn't seem so out of left
field to ask if she thought Blake was cute, would it?"
Natalia considered Olivia's logic. "That's true. You
make a great point. Call Doris back."
Olivia let out an exasperated sigh and ran a hand down one
"Woman! You drive me insane," she whispered hotly
Natalia laughed. "I'm just trying to play matchmaker
for our friends. Is that so wrong?"
The dark haired woman showed her dimples and fluttered her
eyelashes. Olivia groaned and pushed the button on the cell
"Hey," she said into the phone. "I just
remembered I'm going to be closer to Company around one, so
can we go there after all…Yes, I'll still buy… Okay, I'll
see you then. Bye." She then disconnected and face
Natalia again. "Happy now?"
"Delighted," Natalia replied with a smirk.
"Stop that," Olivia told her firmly with a
"Taking my advice by batting those baby browns to get
what you want."
Natalia leaned closer toward Olivia. "So it really
Olivia closed her eyes and hummed softly. "Yes, like a
charm," she replied and then opened her eyes again to see
that Natalia was staring at her bosom unabashed. Olivia
grinned. "Hey, Sweetheart? My eyes are up here," she
said snapping her fingers and pointing to her face.
"I wasn't looking at your eyes," Natalia replied
as she continued to mental undress Olivia. She rolled her
shoulders and then finally looked up to Olivia's face to see
that the older woman was blushing. "Did I just make
Olivia Spencer, THE Olivia Spencer bashful?"
"You know I've had men…admire me, but…I've never
had that happen."
"What exactly?" Natalia asked as her tongue
snaked out to grab her drink straw before taking a drink.
Olivia licked her lips. "Never look so… shameless.
Really…what did those nuns do you to you?"
Natalia giggled slightly. "Honestly?" Olivia
nodded. "I read the bible, a lot. I read quite a few
publications they had about love and sex and about how sex and
sexual desire weren't only natural, they should be celebrated
among couples…When I was able to balance that - the lifelong
lessons of sinful lust and the scripture that allowed people
to take pleasure in the flesh with a loved one then…well…everything
made sense. I knew what I had to do – for the baby, for
Frank, but most importantly for us. I came back here for you
Olivia - not because this child's father is here but instead
because her mother is here...You…I meant what I said last
night, although I said it in anger and frustration…This
child is here now because of the desire I felt for you."
As she finished Natalia took her hand. "I always
understood that I loved you. I desired you. But a part of me
was never at peace with that, not totally."
Olivia swallowed hard and looked almost fearful. "But
you're saying now you are?"
"I am," Natalia answered. "And I know you've
wondered what happens if the next scary event drives me away
again, but it didn't, did it? I mean when Rafe told me he
joined up…" Natalia trailed off and closed her eyes.
"I wanted to run. I wanted to grab him and just run, but…
I came to the one person I needed most in the world. Grant it,
her initial reaction was the last thing I needed and it didn't
stop me from trying to close this distance between us,
"I'm sorry for hurting you, Natalia," Olivia
tried to being to speak but Natalia raised her hand.
"You've been hurt yourself. I'm the one that hurt you.
I get that. I do. And I know that showing up on your doorstep
– or more accurately your door – was a lot to ask of you.
I just need you to realize that I was there because…you're
all I want. That's the easiest way for me to say it. Rafe is a
grown man and he's got his own life now…It's time for me to
have a life and I want that life to be with you." Natalia
had unshed tears in her eyes, but she widened them and sniffed
slightly. "Anyway," she said cheerfully.
"Hormones and such aside…Thanks for coming tonight. I
AM SO glad you're here."
Slowly, Olivia smiled. "I am too…but you promised me
Olivia's smile turned into a sexy smirk. "You've had
naughty dreams you said that you'd discuss."
Natalia's smirk began to rival Olivia's
"Yes. Yes I did, didn't I?"
Olivia nodded and bit her lip in anticipation.
"Rather than tell you about the first dream I had why
don't I tell you about the 'best' dream?"
"Why not do both?" Olivia coaxed and wiggled her
Natalia giggled shyly.
"So, you wanna know the first sexy dream I had about
you, huh?" Natalia asked as the pair sat at the table at
"Yeah, I wanna hear." Olivia simply licked her
lips, not adding more.
"Maybe we should order first. I wouldn't want to be
interrupted," Natalia said coyly.
"Waiter," Olivia barked and waved him over
Natalia stifled down a chuckle.
"Linguini?" Olivia asked her date.
"Yes, please," Natalia answered.
"Two linguini," Olivia instructed and then turned
back to Natalia. "Now, you were saying?"
"I AM a patient woman," Natalia smirked.
"You, obviously, are not."
"Honey, you have enough patience and sainthood for
both of us…at least I'm hoping you do because, really, if
not, I'm in serious trouble."
Natalia smiled and held out her hand on top of the table.
"I've never…done anything like this – I mean…I've
never told someone about naughty dreams so can I get a little
support here please?" she said as she wiggled her
Olivia looked reluctant for only a second or two before she
took her hand. "This better?" she asked.
"Much," Natalia replied. Olivia's hands were so
soft. The Latina's fingers tightened and released around
Olivia's a few times. "Now where was I?"
"First sexy dream," Olivia prompted. "That's
as far as we got."
"The first dream wasn't sexy, not really. It was just
a kiss. It was maybe two days – three days tops – after we
met at Emma's birthday party."
"That soon, really? I thought you were teasing when
you said it before."
"Not at all. I realized very quickly how truly
gorgeous you are." Natalia studied Olivia's lips
intently, getting lost in her examination. Realizing she
wasn't saying anything she shuddered slightly and continued,
"Anyway, in the dream I had gone into your foyer, but it
wasn't a foyer, it was a kitchen."
"It's a dream so it doesn't all make sense,"
"True. Go on."
"So I opened up the refrigerator and suddenly you were
behind me. You asked if I found the fruit punch for the kids
and I said yeah. I turned around and we were face-to-face…but
it didn't feel awkward for you to be that close. I remember
looking into your eyes and saying I'd never seen anyone with a
color quite like yours. I felt hypnotized - like I couldn't
escape. But the thing is, I didn't want to escape. I wanted to
feel you possess me. I wanted your arms around me - your lips
on mine." Unconsciously both women licked their lips.
"Then you leaned in and you kissed me…but I didn't seem
shocked. I didn't resist…I…well I dropped the punch and
grabbed your face to pull you closer and that's when I woke up
thinking, 'What was that?' And, of course, the next day I said
lots of Hail Mary's."
"Funny, I know," Natalia replied. "But even
back then I knew. You were unlike any other woman I'd ever
met. You were scared that day, but… there was still this
strength and determination that totally shined through…You
were…you still are magnificent," Natalia clarified.
"I know the feeling," Olivia replied as she
squeezed Natalia's hand. "There were times that I was
very jealous of you because you had Gus, but the truth is…
there were also times that I was jealous of him…he had you,
completely. You adored him and…At first, I thought it was
because I wanted someone to adore me that way, but then I
realized… it was more." Olivia smiled bashfully, but
then she looked scared and worried.
Natalia knew immediately what the look meant. "Please
don't," she pleaded. "Don't shut me out. Go on. I
need to hear what you want to say."
Olivia grinned due in part to what she knew she wanted to
say, but also because Natalia really could read her that well.
She swallowed hard and continued. "I wanted you to adore
ME like that…but, of course, you never would so I… I did a
lot of lashing out. I said a lot of things I didn't mean
because it was…I don't know…safer?" Olivia shrugged.
She then shook her head. "I was so harsh to you and…even
today it feels like maybe I didn't learn my lesson the first
Natalia squeezed Olivia's hand. "You have every right
to feel how you do, Olivia. And I don't think you
intentionally tried to hurt me - even the date with Matt was
nothing more than you 'running' from how you feel. You've been
trying to protect yourself - and I get why. So... I came back
with a strong resolve about my feelings, sure. But I know the
way I left – and that need I had for solitude – it ripped
you apart and... I broke your heart. But I honestly didn't
think you would take things as hard as you did because… no
one ever missed me."
"I don't believe that," Olivia replied.
"It's true," Natalia replied. "I'm not
saying I didn't make acquaintances - I have. But my existence
was never important to anyone... except maybe Rafe. And
lately..." Natalia sighed.
"Well, I know for a fact that Jonesy in Chicago
Natalia grinned. "You went to Jonesy's looking for
"Yep. Nice guy," Olivia said in short, choppy
sentences. "Seemed to recall you quite fondly…. I kinda
handcuffed myself to his bar."
"What?" Natalia giggled.
Olivia looked embarrassed. "I mentioned I went a
little psycho while you were gone, didn't I?" Natalia
seemed dumbfounded so Olivia went on. "Yeah, trespassing
charge. Got tossed in jail, but Josh came and bailed me
Natalia's mouth hung open. "You're making that
up," she finally replied, unconvinced.
"Yeaaaaah, I wish I was, but…nope – it happened.
In fact, next month I go back to court."
"Oh my goodness," Natalia said. "Well, can
you get him to drop the charges?"
Olivia paused and bit her lip. "Jonesy really doesn't
like me very much."
"Oh for Pete's sake," Natalia sighed. "Why
didn't you tell me sooner?" She didn't wait for Olivia to
reply. "I'll call him and get him to drop the
"I don't need you to pick up the mess I made,"
"I know. But it's my mess too, remember? We're a
couple. What's yours is mine and what's mine is yours and we
share everything – no secrets."
"Do we?" Olivia asked hopefully but with a touch
of fear. "A big part of me wants to believe that, but
there's this nagging voice that's telling me...don't be a
Natalia leaned over and brought Olivia's hand to her lips,
kissing the knuckles. "I swear to you Olivia. With all I
have…you mean the world to me."
Olivia grinned if only for a couple of seconds. She cleared
her throat. "Why don't you tell me about your best dream
Natalia gave her a sexy smirk and released her hand. She
got up and she moved toward the seat next to Olivia as the
hotelier looked at her curiously. She leaned down to Olivia's
ear as she took her seat.
"I think if someone overhears this next conversation…we
might get banned from Towers for life," she whispered.
"Oh wow," Olivia said hopefully as she felt
Natalia's left hand settle at her knee giving it a light
"I should preface this tale by saying thanks."
"Thanks?" Olivia asked confused.
"The first, and last, orgasm I ever had was the result
of this dream I'm about to tell you."
"Oh good god," Olivia sighed, her mouth slightly
Natalia ran a finger down Olivia's jaw line. "Do I
have your attention, Ms Spencer?"
"I just needed to make sure I have your total
attention," Natalia teased.
"I'm intrigued, yes," Olivia said sounding
Natalia laughed quietly and turned a bit more so she could
face Olivia who was seated next to her. The close proximity of
Natalia's body wasn't lost on Olivia in the slightest and the
older woman couldn't help it when her eyes wondered down to
Natalia's cleavage that sat only inches away.
"Guess I'm not the only breast gal at this
table," Natalia noted with a sexy leer.
Olivia looked away, appearing slightly fretfully, but then
turned back to face Natalia with renewed confidence.
"So do you have any idea why I asked you to wear this
suit tonight?" Natalia asked.
Natalia's fingertips trailed down Olivia's arm, feeling the
material, as she studied Olivia's profile. She could tell that
any hope Olivia had of being tranquil in her presence was
immediately departing. Her own breathing quickened as she
watched Olivia's pupils dilating in arousal. And she knew
Olivia's words might say one thing tonight, but the older
woman's body would betray itself. Natalia grinned eagerly at
Awestruck, Olivia simply shook her head, unable to vocalize
a single thought.
"You wore this..." Natalia said as she played
gently with the sleeve as her breath danced across Olivia's
neck, "…the day we went shopping for wedding dresses.
Olivia struggled to find her voice. "I, uh, I remember
that day, yeah."
"Yeah," Nat agreed with a seductive tilt to her
voice. It sounded almost like a purr and Olivia had to look
away. "You wanted me that day, didn't you?"
Natalia reached her wrist and she could feel how fast
Olivia's pulse was pounding under her fingertips. She felt her
mouth go dry as Olivia's eyes fluttered closed. Natalia smiled
hungrily and began to unbutton Olivia's jacket at an
excruciating slow pace. She took great delight as her fingers
brushed against the hotelier's breasts and stomach.
"'talia," was all Olivia could manage to push
from her lips.
Once all the buttons were undone, Natalia's hand snaked up
between Olivia's breasts. She continued to reach up until her
hand was able to stroke Olivia's cheek. The gesture forced
Olivia's eyes opened again and she was suddenly meet with
Natalia's wanton stare.
There were plenty of times that Olivia witnessed love and
devotion reflected in Natalia's eyes, but never did she see
this deep…passion. That look alone made the muscles deep
inside of Olivia clinch in unlimited craving and what soon
followed was a wetness that Olivia hadn't felt in years…perhaps
ever. She physically had to shift in her seat to relieve the
Natalia opened Olivia's jacket slightly and took great
delight in examine Olivia's bust line. She then reached across
the table and dropped her napkin to the floor between them.
"Oops," she said as she put her hand on cheek in
mock-surprise. "Be right back."
Olivia thought her heart would stop as Natalia's head
bobbed down to her lap as the younger woman fished for the
napkin on the floor. When she came back up, having not touched
Olivia in the slightest, the older woman was both grateful and
disappointed all at once.
"I just had to find out," Natalia said casually
as she tossed her napkin back to the table.
"What?" Olivia asked, as if trying to get her
Natalia smiled. "If I could smell your desire for me
through that gorgeous suit."
"Oh, fuck," Olivia swore under her breath and
wiped her forehead of the growing perspiration she was
beginning to feel.
"You smell delicious, by the way," she said
trying to come off as being casual. Natalia continued to smile
at the reaction, but then she looked serious again. The lust
promptly returned to her eyes. "No more secrets - we
promised…" she added in a whisper. "You wanted to
take me at that dress shop, didn't you?"
Olivia swallowed and tried to look away, but Natalia
captured her chin. Unable to escape, Olivia took a deep breath
and let it out slowly.
"Yes," she surrendered. "I wanted you."
"I know. I could tell by the way you looked at me in
that mirror." Natalia released a slight groan of her own
before continuing. "I could tell by the way the back of
your fingers caressed my shoulders and arm as you adjusted the
smock. I could tell by the way your eyes devoured me in a way
you wish your lips and mouth could…" Olivia could only
nod in reply, as Natalia continued, sounding breathless
herself. "It took all the willpower you had to hold
yourself back from exploring me that day, didn't it?"
Olivia took a ragged sigh. "God, yes."
Natalia grinned and continued almost breathlessly, "I
know you did. That's why later that night… that's when it
"What?" Olivia asked, finally turning her head to
look at Natalia.
"In my dream," Natalia whispered. "In my
dream, you had no willpower and you wore this outfit the first
time you made me come…" Olivia let out the smallest of
whimpers that didn't go undetected by Natalia. "That
turns you on, doesn't it? It makes you wonder what you did to
me, huh?" Natalia asked brazenly.
"Don't tease," Olivia managed in a breathy
"It's only teasing if I don't tell you what
happened," Natalia breathed and rested her forehead
against Olivia's temple. "Do you wanna hear? I'll stop
now if you want."
Olivia licked her lips and her arm slipped under the table
and squeezed Natalia's leg, slowly she began to raise the
material of the skirt Natalia was wearing.
"T-Tell me… how…" Olivia struggled.
Natalia grinned wickedly as she put a halt to Olivia's
hand. "How what…?"
Olivia turned to face Natalia and the look of lust in
Natalia's eyes momentarily caught her off guard. She didn't
dwell on it though. Instead her other palm cupped Natalia's
cheek and she sighed herself when she watched the Latina woman
melt into the slight embrace. Natalia nuzzled her hand with a
mixture of affection and desire, and when Olivia didn't reply,
Natalia opened her eyes and fixed them on Olivia's.
"Say it, Honey," Natalia prompted.
"How did I make you come?" Olivia asked.
The question came out like an unadulterated, desire-filled
whine of pure ache and heat, the likes of which even caught
Natalia by surprise.
But it wasn't just the words alone, but also Olivia's
actions. On the word 'come,' Olivia's thumb brushed Natalia's
cheekbone affectionately and the dark-haired woman moaned. The
Latina shifted her head slightly and planted a kiss on the
ball of Olivia's hand, just below the thumb. Then Natalia
moved her chair over slightly and tucked her body even closer
"I'll tell you, Cariño," Natalia replied
breathless herself. "I'll tell you."
"Where should I begin?" Natalia pondered.
Before she got any further though they both looked up to
see the waiter standing there with a serving tray and two
"You moved," he mentioned to Natalia.
"Yeah, just sit it here please," she told him as
she pointed. "Thank you," she added as he rested her
plate down before her.
"Can we get two boxes and the bill now?" Olivia
told him. "I'm not sure how much longer we'll be
"Certainly," he replied and then added, "Are
you feeling okay? You look a little flushed."
"I'm good. Just those boxes please."
"Absolutely," he replied.
After he left the table, Natalia giggled.
"See what you do to me?" Olivia replied with a
slight grin herself. "All the blood as left my face and
moved to other areas. Even the 'help' is noticing."
"You say that like it's a bad thing." Natalia
Olivia paused for a moment not saying anything.
"I'm soooo gonna wreck you for anyone else in the
world – you'll never want another lover in your bed after
tonight. You wait and see."
"Promises, promises," Natalia teased with a bored
"You think I'm kidding?"
"No, but you're not ready for that," Natalia
replied being serious again. "Not yet anyway."
"Believe me dear. I'm ready."
"Physically? Yeah. The taunt nipples and the puddle in
your chair says as much," she said, making Olivia groan.
"Emotionally though?" Natalia just shook her head.
"HOWEVER, there's no reason why we can't…play… I'm
game if you are?"
Olivia licked her lips.
The waiter arrived with two boxes. "Here's the bill
too. Did you need anything else right now?"
"We're good, Brad," Natalia replied. "Thank
He smiled and after he walked away, Olivia asked. "You
"No," Natalia said, sounding confused.
"Oh, well, you mentioned him by name," Olivia
"Yeah, it's on his name tag." She laughed softly.
"Well, to be honest, I wasn't paying attention to
'Brad' – I've been a bit preoccupied," Olivia retorted.
Natalia smiled. "I've worked in the service industry
and it was always nice when customers treated me like a person
and not an errand girl. How do you think I manage to get us
the best seats and service whenever we go out? You catch more
flies with honey than vinegar, dear."
"Well, let's get back to why I can't 'catch you'
tonight," Olivia replied. "You're not pulling a
'come here / go away routine,' are you? Because—"
"Not at all," Natalia answered quickly and
confidently. "I want you. Lord knows I WANT you, but not
at the risk of moving too quickly. Besides, wouldn't you
rather…warm up…to the idea of you and me? I was making you
rather warm before, wasn't I?" There was no denying the
alluring tone in her voice and Olivia simply closed her eyes
in response. "Now, where were we?" she asked.
Olivia turned in her chair slightly and opened her eyes
again. She grinned only for a moment and then nuzzled her nose
between Natalia's earlobe and her hair.
"You were going to tell me how I made you climax,
remember?" Olivia whispered.
Natalia groaned and balled the end of Olivia's jacket into
a tight fist.
"Right," she replied. "Your hands,"
Natalia said, "…it was your hands that I remember the
"What did they do?" Olivia asked.
"Everything," Natalia answered sensuously.
"Like what?" Olivia asked. "Show me,"
she added in a come-hither tone.
"Oh, Goodness," Natalia uttered in an inflamed
tone. "If I did that then we definitely would be kicked
out of here for life."
Both women chuckled slightly. "Tonight I'd take that
chance," Olivia replied. She then slowly slid the
tablecloth toward Natalia's stomach. Soon after Olivia's
fingers began to slide up Natalia's leg and under the skirt
she was wearing.
Her fingers were nearly at the apex when Natalia reached
down and snared Olivia's wrist.
"That's far enough, Sailor," she teased.
"I'll go down," Olivia breathed in her ear.
"I'll do lots of things – just tell me." Natalia
loosened her hold on Olivia's hand and that's all the
invitation she needed. Olivia's fingers reached the silk
material there, finding it beyond slick. It was positively
Natalia whimpered. "I want you Olivia, but please, not
like this. Not here."
Olivia's hand retreated slightly, but it didn't leave
Natalia's thigh. "Don't worry, Sweetie. I won't if you
don't want. I just had to see if you're as drenched as I am
"You got your answer," Natalia replied.
"I sure did, but don't worry. I won't take you in a
semi-crowded restaurant…at least not yet," she added
and wiggled her eyebrows. Natalia released a gently sigh at
the remark and rested her head on Olivia's shoulder. "But
you do need to tell me about the dream. Deal?"
Natalia grinned. "Okay…The dream…Well, we were at
the dress shop…"
"Standing there, looking in the mirror, I couldn't take
my eyes off of you, remember?" Natalia asked.
Olivia settled in even closer, putting her arm around the back
of Natalia's chair as she nodded. "Go on…"
"Well…" Natalia said as she began to remember the
The shop was filled with both natural and artificial light.
Everywhere she looked Natalia saw wedding dresses - the icons
associated with everlasting love, unity and devotion. And
nearly all of them were white, of course - the color of
purity. It felt like a cruel joke. As she looked at Olivia
staring at her in the reflection she knew her thoughts were
anything but pure. The desire, the lust, the longing she felt…it
was everything her family and church warned her about. It
would take her down a wicked path; someplace beyond
redemption. But if it was so evil then why did it feel so
"C-can I ask you something?" Natalia began.
Olivia cleared her throat. "You can ask me
"At the engagement party… you were giving a toast,
remember?" Natalia seemed to struggle with each word
although she continued to focus on Olivia's reflection in the
mirror behind her.
"I remember," she replied.
"If my glass hadn't slipped – no, if I hadn't
stopped you by dropping my glass…" Natalia confessed.
"…would you have said it?"
"Said what?" Olivia asked knowingly.
Natalia reached over and took Olivia's hand that was
resting on her arm, intertwining their fingers together.
"You know what," Natalia answered. "That you
Olivia took a deep breath. "You love Frank," she
Natalia tightened her hold on Olivia's hand and muttered
softly, "Matthew Chapter Five says: 'You have heard that
the law of Moses says, 'Do not commit adultery.' But I say,
anyone who even LOOKS at a woman with lust in his eye has
already committed adultery with her in his heart'…"
"And?" Olivia prompted when Natalia trailed off.
"I love Frank. I do," she began, "but I
don't desire him….and the thoughts I have about you…the
way we look at each other, like right now…it is with lust,
"Natalia," Olivia said drawing her name out.
"It is…and you feel it too…don't you?" Olivia
didn't answer. The older woman was paralyzed. Whether it was
from fear or desire, Natalia couldn't tell. Either way,
Olivia's face was an unreadable mask. "Please say
something," Natalia begged. Still, Olivia said and did
nothing and a worried expression began to form on Natalia's
face. "I'm sorry. I'm sorry I said anything. It's obvious
you don't desire me…and I totally misread-."
Olivia turned Natalia around putting her hands on her
waist. The younger woman tried to hide her face, but Olivia
took a firm hold of her chin with one hand so their eyes meet.
"Stop. Just stop," Olivia said compassionately.
The kiss she planted on Natalia's lips was long and
lingering. It wasn't searching in the slightest – it was
more like dipping a toe into a pool to test the water, rather
than a nosedive. Yet, at the same time, it still stole both of
their breaths and left them both quivering.
"You have to marry Frank," Olivia repeated as she
rested her forehead on Natalia's. "It's not about what I
want or what you want. I won't make an adulterer out of
She began to pull away, but Natalia refused to let Olivia
"That's my point," she insisted. "I already
am an adulterer. It doesn't matter what I do because I'm just
as guilty because of what's in my heart and I'd rather be with
you. I could marry Frank, sure, but I'd spend the rest of my
life wondering 'what it' and wanting you – totally;
completely and in every way."
"Oh yeah," Olivia replied skeptically; defiantly.
She grabbed Natalia's smock and pulled the woman closer to her
– totally capturing her so she couldn't escape.. Their
bodies shook at the impact and Natalia let out a small yelp.
"See? Even that scares you," Olivia pointed out
upon hearing the noise.
Natalia's hands suddenly grabbed Olivia's thigh and back,
pulling her closer still.
"It's not fear you're seeing or hearing," Natalia
said testing Olivia's bravery.
Olivia leered at Natalia, and muttered, "You do look
beautiful in this dress."
"Think of how I'd look out of it," Natalia
Olivia groaned and her lips descended on Natalia. This time
instead of a chaste kiss of exploration she let her passion
explode, devouring the woman. She worked her fingers through
Natalia's hair and pulled the young woman's head back,
exposing her neck.
"Then what happened?" Olivia asked as she sat next
to Natalia, stroking the younger woman's knee at the
"You started to quote scripture – Romans
actually," Natalia replied deadpanned.
Olivia couldn't help, but giggle. "Imaginary Olivia is
quite the bible beater then?"
Natalia smiled and nodded.
Olivia's tongue and teeth nipped at the bare flesh.
"Let love be without hypocrisy," she told Natalia
in a rasping voice against her neck. "Abhor what is evil.
Cling to what is good - Romans 12:9." Upon uttering the
word 'cling' Olivia unzipped the back of the dress and her
hands began to caress Natalia's unclothed back. "Is this
what you want? Is it?"
"No," Natalia growled. "I want more."
She pushed Olivia back down into the chair behind her. The
older woman landed with a slight thud and the look of
surprise. She looked up to see Natalia pushing the dress
completely off of her body. Olivia watched wide-eyed at the
woman before her clad only in her white lace underwear.
"Jesus, Joseph, Mary and all the saints," Olivia
mumbled. "You're gorgeous."
Natalia smiled. "So you do want me – I knew
it," she teased.
Still wearing her shocked expression, Olivia watched
Natalia straddled her legs and took her hands in hers, placing
them on her hips.
"So you straddled me?" Olivia asked. "Right
there in the dress shop?"
"Yeah," Natalia sighed and closed her eyes
"You didn't bother to take me into the dressing
Natalia slowly opened her eyes again and focused on Olivia.
"I had to have you; right then and there. It was that
look in your eyes that did me in… kinda like what I'm seeing
now," she added with a slight giggle. Olivia turned away
slightly embarrassed for a moment, but Natalia turned her back
to face her. "Anyway, it was only a dream, but I swear I
could feel your fingers under mine, your hands on my hips…You
ran one of your hands across my stomach and then moved up
between my breasts." Olivia licked her lips and Natalia
smirked, satisfied with the effect she was having on the older
woman. "Then it happened."
"You climaxed?" Olivia asked in anticipation.
"Slow down Tiger," Natalia retorted. "You think
I'm THAT easy? Heck, no! You're dealing with thirty plus years
of embedded Catholic teaching, remember?"
Olivia grinned. "Okay, so what DID happen?"
Natalia grinned seductively. "This…"
She took Olivia's hand as she titled her head back and led the
woman's hand up her throat and over her chin. Then she took
the hotelier's thumb into her mouth and began to gently suck
on it. She let her tongue play with the very tip in a rapid
"Uhhhh," Olivia grunted through clinched teeth and
reluctantly she pulled away. "So, uh, what, uh, happened
next?" Olivia asked as she moved her hand to cup the side
of Natalia's face.
At the dress shop, Olivia took back possession of her hand
and began to kiss Natalia with wild fervor. Natalia's hands
worked their way into Olivia's hair, pulling her closer and
leading her to every area she needed kissed. Olivia happily
obliged her and followed the path Natalia was creating – the
Latina's earlobe, neck, cheeks, lips…When Natalia shifted to
get a better position she ending up rising slightly in the
Not wasting the opportunity of Natalia's cleavage before
her, Olivia captured the erect nipple bouncing in her face.
One hand left Natalia's hip and she cradled the breast in her
hand as she devoured the flesh before her. Natalia tightened
her hold on Olivia's hair as they both moaned in pleasure. A
few moments later, Olivia reached over with her other hand and
brought both breast together, putting both of them in her
"Yessss," Natalia hissed into the top of Olivia's
head as the woman continued to worship her breasts with
abandon. Olivia had to grin when she felt Natalia began to
rock her hips in response. Feeling the smile before every
seeing it Natalia looked down and asked, "What?"
Olivia sucked briefly on Natalia's nipple and said,
"This isn't nearly enough is it?"
"Are you kidding?" Natalia replied. "I love
Olivia's hand reached between Natalia's legs and stroked
the folds just briefly. Natalia's breath caught and she
omitted a deep sigh of desire. Olivia again, made only one
pass across Natalia's sex with her fingers and once more she
got the same response.
"You love this more, don't you?" Olivia asked.
All thought of attempting to speak escaped Natalia. All she
could do was nod fervently. It was all the invitation Olivia
needed. Her hand began to stroke Natalia in rhythm – they
weren't firm strokes in the slightest and were more teasing
than anything. As a result Natalia put her hands on Olivia's
shoulders for support and began to ardently move her hips in
time with Olivia's hand.
"Yeah," Olivia coaxed, her shoulder rising and
falling with each synchronized stroke. "That's it,
Sweetie. Grind those hips into me," she muttered, before
she reached up, snaring Natalia's nipple again with her lips
as her fingers worked magic from below.
Back at the table at Towers, Olivia held up a finger and took
a drink of her water. Her hand was shaking so bad though that
Natalia had to help her steady the glass.
"Okay?" Natalia asked as Olivia put the glass back
down. "Should I continue or stop here?"
"Don't you dare stop," Olivia threatened.
Natalia smiled. "Funny – that was my response in my
"Had enough?" Olivia asked as she continued to
rub her fingers through the slickness she'd created within
Natalia first let out a series of grunts and when Olivia
acted like she was going to take her hand away Natalia grabbed
her wrist, keeping it steady. From that point, Natalia did all
the work. She held Olivia's hand in place as she slid her sex
across it, moving faster and faster. Olivia grinned when she
saw Natalia looking passionate, but also…frustrated.
"You want more, don't you?" Olivia told her with
a smile. "But you're not sure what you need, huh?"
Natalia nodded a bit shyly. "Oh no," Olivia warned.
"You're not getting self-conscious on me now. You just
want to get fucked, Honey. That's what you want and that's
okay. In fact, that's wonderful." Natalia nodded
enthusiastically. "Then say it," Olivia told her.
"I want you to say it," The younger woman didn't
slow her movement, but she seemed reluctant to voice the
words, at least until Olivia softly swore, "God, you're
so fucking hot, Natalia."
"Inside me," Natalia said softly.
"Louder," Olivia ordered. "Say it,
"I want you inside me now," Natalia ordered.
Olivia took her hand away, making Natalia whimper at the
loss of contact. It didn't last long though.
"Stand up," Olivia ordered.
Natalia moved to her feet as best as her legs could hold
her, but she didn't have to stay upright for long. Olivia
swiftly pulled off the soaked panties and led Natalia to the
floor. She gently placed her across her crumpled wedding dress
that lay there. The older woman looked at Natalia's dark hair,
wild and strewn across the whiteness of the dress. Natalia
then reached up a hand to Olivia who was now kneeling over
"Take me," Natalia coaxed as she grabbed Olivia
by the jacket, pulling her closer.
Olivia didn't say a single word. Her clothed legs slipped
between Natalia's naked thighs, making both women groan. Not
wasting a moment, Olivia slipped two fingers easily inside
Natalia and began to pump the young woman. She watched
Natalia's pelvis thrust with each motion she made and she felt
herself start to perspire. Her clothes felt cumbersome and she
reluctantly reached to take off the jacket.
"No," Natalia said, "Please. Leave it on.
You look so hot; controlling; powerful. Leave it."
"It's just that it's getting pretty warm in
here," Olivia remarked.
"Good. I wanna make you sweat. I wanna feel you
dripping on me; the slick skin; the…oh please, Olivia.
Olivia grinned in knowing she could never refuse Natalia of
anything she asked. She could delay it. She could try to
ignore it. But whatever Natalia wanted she'd get it in the end
and this was no different. And if right now she wanted her
inside of her…
Olivia began to grind her hips against Natalia, the fabric
of the pants rubbing against Natalia's clit. For her part, the
Latina reached down and grabbed Olivia's derriere, pulling her
"God, Natalia," Olivia muttered, "Can you
feel it? Can you feel it?"
Her eyes went wide. "Yes," she replied.
Back at the restaurant, Natalia was raising her water glass to
Olivia mimicked Natalia by saying, "I-I-I-…" and
then she asked in an impatient whisperer, "You what? Go
"That's just it. I couldn't say anything and… it
happened. That's when I came. I didn't know what was
happening," Natalia confessed. "I just felt this
building and building and building and…then this wave of
pure pleasure washed over me. I woke up immediately and found
my hands between my legs. I could still feel the walls inside
me still clinching and releasing. And that's when I realized…"
"Why sex is such a big deal," Natalia said with a
slight chuckle. "My goodness, sex could be fantastic. So
imagine my absolute horror months later when you show up at my
doorstep telling me that we'd never have to have sex?"
Olivia smiled and ran her fingers through her own hair.
"I didn't want to scare you away."
"Well you almost did because I want that – I want that
feeling for real…" She got a serious but loving look on
her delicate features, "I want that feeling with
Olivia gave her a genuine smile. Although she lusted after her
for sure, the smile contained all the joy and love Olivia
still had for Natalia.
"That's why, no matter how much I want you tonight,"
Natalia continued, "…my first time with you…It needs
to be right Olivia…or 'good' as you've said. At this point…As
much as I do desire you, I'm not sure we're there yet – and
I know, that's my fault. But I'm trying to show you how much I
want you…on every level."
Olivia cleared her throat and she took Natalia's face in her
hands. She kissed her gently, but soundly on the lips and was
pleased when Natalia didn't resist in the slightest.
"We'll get there," she said affectionately.
"Sorry I'm late," Doris said as she made her way to
the table where Olivia was seated. "The damn water
department. You know water should not be a complicated issue.
You make it clean – case closed. So again, I
"That's fine," Olivia replied. "I'm the boss so
I can come and go as I please. Have a seat."
"So," Doris said as she settled in taking the menu.
"Why am I here and what do you need?"
"I can't just have lunch with a friend?" Olivia
asked. Before she had a chance to add anything more, Blake
"Can I get you a drink, Doris?"
"Yeah, a shot of J.D. and a cola. It's been a long day
already and it's not over yet."
"We don't have any alcohol here," Blake replied.
"Liar," she said with a playful smile.
"No, we really don't."
Doris held up a finger and got up. She walked around to the
bar and went to Buzz's cupboard and pulled out a shot glass
and the whisky bottle. She filled up the glass and put the
items away before walking back to her table.
As she sat down Blake asked, "How did you-?"
"A cola please," Doris replied with a grin.
"And don't worry. I have absolutely no intention of
paying for this shot, so you're not violating any liquor
"That's not yours," Blake replied.
Doris looked at Blake, the shot, Blake again and then picked
up the shot. She raised it first in a toasting fashion to
Blake and then downed it in one gulp. She handed the empty
shot glass back to Blake and patted her hand once she had a
grip on it.
"Now be a dear and fill that up again when you bring my
cola. Thanks." She then turned to Olivia, totally
disregarding Blake. "Anyway, you never answered me.
What's up?" Dumbstruck at Doris's moxie behavior, Blake
grinned as she walked away with the empty glass. Olivia tried
not to laugh. "What?" Doris asked.
"Nothing," Olivia snickered. "I, uh, I asked
you here today because I promised my girlfriend I would."
"Girlfriend, huh?" Doris teased. "So she
finally won you over?"
Olivia considered the comment. "Let's just say I'm at the
'forgive' phase, but not the 'forget' part yet."
"You might never forget what she did," Doris
replied. "Can you live with that?"
"It's far better than living without her," Olivia
replied, "but I'm not here to talk about me."
"Okay, again, why ARE we here?"
Olivia tried to find a starting place. "Hmm…okay, I'm
supposed to be super sneaky here and not come right out and
ask, but skip it. Bottom line – what do you think of Blake
"I think she'd make a lousy bartender. I still don't have
my drink," she replied.
Olivia sighed exasperated. "Don't make this harder on me
than it needs to be."
"Make what harder? What the hell are you talking
"Do you think Blake's cute?"
Doris paused a beat. "Do I think she's CUTE? Why does it
suddenly feel like I'm in the eighth-grade?"
"Yes or no?"
Doris looked at Blake putting some drinks on a serving tray.
"Well," Doris began as she gave the woman an
appraising eye, "I wouldn't call her 'cute.' She's
attractive, certainly…Nice legs….Plus, she's got that
strawberry-blonde workin' for her. Why are you asking me? I
thought you said you and Natalia were working things
"I'm not asking for me!" Olivia spat in a harsh
whisper. "I'm asking for you, ya goofball! She told
Natalia she feels a 'vibe' with you and thought you might be
"Hell, I flirt with just about every attractive woman I
see. But dating the town gossip? Ha! Hello! I'm trying to stay
IN the closet," Doris replied.
A few moments later, Blake arrived at the table and put down
another shot of whisky and cola with a shy smile.
"A woman after my own heart," Doris complimented.
"You're welcome," Blake said as a rosiness came to
her cheeks. "Do you know what you want for lunch?"
Doris maintained eye contact and pushed her hair over her
shoulder. "What's on special?" she asked.
Self-consciously Blake began to play with her order pad,
unable to continue looking at Doris for the moment. She was
surprised to see Doris was still studying her when she raised
her eyes again.
"Egg salad or turkey with cheddar. Both come with soup
– chicken noodle or cream of mushroom," she replied.
Doris gave a short nod. "Let's go turkey and
"You got it," Blake said before turning to Olivia.
"I'll just go with the chicken noodle. I'm not super
Blake reached over and took the menus, saying, "Thanks
As she walked away to place the order, Olivia turned back to
"What do you say? We could all go out."
"You mean like a double date?"
"Yeah," Olivia replied hopefully.
Doris poured her shot into her cola and began to stir it with
her straw. "No because lesbians don't double date, okay?
We date. We have potlucks. But there's absolutely no double
dating allowed. It's a rule."
"Absolutely," Doris tried to say seriously and
started to grin.
"Oh yeah, well, be a rebel," Olivia said, becoming
animated waving her hands. "Throw caution to the wind.
You said you never take any risks so take one now – come on
a double date and risk that lesbian street cred of
Doris giggled and shook her head. "I'm not sure who's
crazier – you for suggesting this or me for actually
"I'm not really into women, but Blake's a looker,
Doris just stared at Olivia for a moment. "You're the
worst lesbian in the world. You know that, right?"
"I'm not a lesbian. Why does everyone think that?"
Doris chuckled. "Oh, I don't know," she
sarcastically. "Maybe because you're living with a woman,
raising your kids together and maybe, if you're lucky enough,
having sex everyday. Olivia, sweetie, honey, dear…that makes
"But women in general don't turn me on. I'm not even sure
I can be called bi, except when it comes to Natalia, who,
speaking of which, is driving me crazy. And yes, like you
said, I'd love to have sex every night. Hell, even once before
I die would be great at this point. Just last night I missed
my linguini dinner because she had to tell me about her sexy
"So you're in her wet dreams, huh?" Doris teased.
"Yeah, but I'd rather be in her bed," Olivia
"Says the straight woman, right?" Doris mocked.
Olivia simply groaned. "Okay hetro-gal," Doris
provoked, making Olivia roll her eyes, "… does this
mean you're okay with everything that happened? Her leaving;
not saying where she was going; so on and so forth?"
Olivia rolled her shoulders. "I didn't say that. I just
said I want to be in her bed."
Doris laughed and Olivia had to smile too.
"She says I'm not ready," Olivia continued.
"She turns me on completely and says I'm not ready. I'm
ready already, really. I am. I'm beyond ready. I'm raring to
Both women began to chuckle and Doris said, "You means
she's a C.T.?"
"Clit tease – a C.T.," Doris replied.
Olivia giggled like a schoolgirl. "That's funny, but no.
I think she's just as 'tormented' as I am about it all.
Actually, I know she is because I made her give me her soaked
underwear. I mean how sad is that?"
The mayor carefully considered what she just heard.
"That sounds kinda hot actually," Doris replied.
"You made her give you her underwear, really?"
Olivia got a far off look in her eye for a moment as she
remembered the night before.
Each woman had a bag in her hand with their take-out food
as they walked to Natalia's car.
"Thank you for dinner," Natalia told her.
"Next time, it'll be my treat."
"Don't worry about it." Olivia smiled.
Natalia took a deep breath and blew it out slowly. "Soooo…"
She held her hand out awkwardly for Olivia to shake. Olivia
smiled and looked at the offered appendage. She took Natalia's
bag from her and place both of their food containers on the
ground at their feet. Rather than shaking Natalia's hand,
Olivia placed Natalia's hand on her hip and Natalia took the
cue, pulling Olivia closer.
"Is this how I first kissed you in your dream?"
Olivia asked as she closed the distance between them.
Olivia captured Natalia's face with both hands. She ran her
fingers behind Natalia's ears, playing with her hair for a
moment before her thumbs began to caress Natalia's cheekbones.
Natalia's eyes fluttered closed and she sighed in
contentment and arousal. When she didn't feel Olivia descend
toward her that's when she opened her eyes again. She met
Olivia's expression of pure love and worship and she began to
"I love you too," Natalia said although Olivia
hadn't spoken a word.
The affectionate comment made Olivia smile and she closed
the distance between them. Both women could feel their hearts
threatening to beat out of their chests as their lips
tentatively touched. Although it wasn't the first time they'd
ever kissed it was probably the most important kiss of their
lives together…at least so far.
It was gentle, sweet but totally electric with neither
woman ever feeling a jolt like it before. Olivia pulled back
only a few fractions of an inch and quickly returned. Her lips
snared Natalia's bottom lip. Natalia, for her part, kissed
Olivia's top lip and allowed her tongue to gently swipe at the
cleft area between Olivia's nose and lips.
The gesture was Olivia's undoing and she found herself
pulling Natalia's face closer as her tongue began to explore
the inside of Natalia's mouth. She found no resistance. In
fact, Natalia met her stroke for stroke and when Natalia began
to suck on Olivia's tongue the older woman's legs physically
began to buckle.
Both of them began to giggle and pulled away.
"See what you do?" Olivia told her. "You
bring me to my knees," she said in an exaggerated gesture
as she went to the ground.
Natalia laughed and looked around nervously to see if
anyone else could see them in the parking lot. Olivia looked
up at Natalia mischievously. She began to run her hands up the
back of Natalia's legs and under her skirt.
"Olivia," Natalia said sounding concerned and
curious about what the hotelier was going to do.
Olivia cupped Natalia's back side and said, "I want
these," as she began to pull the underwear off her hips.
Olivia slid the garment down Natalia's legs and once they
were at her ankles Natalia balanced herself on Olivia's
shoulders as she stepped out of them. Once the underwear was
firmly in her possession, Olivia brought the panties up to her
face and inhaled deeply, taking in the scent. The moan Olivia
exuded made Natalia whimper.
"Do you mind if I keep these?" Olivia asked as
she held them in front of Natalia.
"Not at all," Natalia croaked, her own desire at
what she just witnessed evident in her voice.
Olivia smiled confidently as she moved to her feet.
"Two can play this arousal game after all."
She then reached down and grabbed one the doggie bags. She
slid Natalia to the side and opened her car door from her.
Escorting her to the driver's seat, Olivia handed the bag over
"Call me tonight?" Olivia asked. "Let me
know you made it home okay?"
Natalia could only nod at first, but then she broke from
her hypnotic state.
"Hope you, uh, enjoy those," she said nodding her
head toward Olivia's pocket that held her underwear.
"Don't worry. Someday, I'll tell you all about it.
And with that she closed Natalia's car door.
It was Doris's voice that shook her from the memory.
"Earth to Olivia?"
"Sorry, what did you say?" she asked sounding a tad
"I asked if you really asked for her underwear?"
"More like I took them. I mean I couldn't help it. I knew
that they'd…smell like her and according to Blake sometimes
you gotta take matters into your own hands so it made a nice…motivator…for
when I was home…all by myself…in that big bed…totally
alone." Olivia let out an exasperated sigh.
Doris giggled and asked, "And Natalia had no issue with
Olivia began to grin wickedly. "By the way her voice
cracked, I'm guessing she thought it was pretty hot like you
"Damn, Spencer," Doris guffawed. "I gotta try
that move sometime."
Blake returned and began to serve the food and Doris winked at
Olivia and nodded her head slightly toward Blake in a 'watch
this' kind of fashion.
"So what are you doing tonight around seven?" Doris
Blake instantly turned red, but tried to play things casually
by saying, "Ehh, nothing that I know of. Why?"
"Well, Olivia gave me the impression that you wanted to
get together. She thinks the four of us should go out."
She turned to Olivia. "Does seven work for you and
"Yeah," Olivia then turned to the waitress.
"What about you, Blake? Seven?"
"Seven's good," she replied. "If you like
Italian food there's Dominic's on Main?"
"Dominic's at seven. We'll see you then," Doris
Blake walked away with a large grin and Doris found herself
smiling too. She turned to Olivia. Still smiling she said,
"If this turns out to be a disaster I'm never forgiving
your girlfriend, ever."
Olivia smiled too.
"Take it from me personally… You can try, but it's hard
to STAY mad at Natalia."
Dominic’s Restaurant wasn’t crowded since it was the
middle of the week during a sluggish economy. There were only
two other couples at two different tables having a meal. All
told that fact might not have been a terrible thing as voices
and tempers began to rise at one table in particular.
Doris and Olivia sat on one side while Blake and Natalia sat
respectively across from them on the other.
"If you outlaw guns only outlaws will have guns,"
Doris said firmly to Blake, she then pointed to Olivia.
"She’s got a 9 millimeter Glock." She paused and
looked over to Olivia appearing impressed. "It’s really
"Thanks," Olivia said a bit unsure if she wanted to
even come near this debate.
"Who said anything about banning all guns," Blake
replied, ignoring Olivia’s part in the conversation and
focusing on Doris. "I’m talking about things like… I
don’t know, a AR-15 with a 50 round magazine."
Natalia reached over and held an appetizer in her hand,
putting it between Doris and Blake. "Cheese stick?"
she asked nervously, hoping to break the growing tension.
"No thank you," Doris said shortly, but politely.
Her face slipped back into debate mode as she faced Blake
again. "For the record, the AR-15 has a 10 round
magazine," she corrected. "But your point
"A weapon like that isn’t used to hunt deer, okay? Let’s
be honest. It’s designed to kill people."
"And target practice," Doris said. "Some people
just like the thrill of shooting, right?" She turned back
Olivia looked at Natalia with an expression that showed she
really didn’t want to enter the debate whatsoever.
"Yeah," she replied trying to sound neutral.
"And I bet you’ve even taken Natalia shooting,"
"No, actually. She won’t go."
"Smart girl," Blake added.
"Now what a second, Blake," Olivia said starting to
get irritated. "I think everyone should know how to
handle a gun because you never know when you might be forced
to use one - you especially since you work at Company. A
mugger comes in waving a gun and it drops you should be able
to pick it up and fire it, if needed."
"Thank you," Doris said motioning to Olivia.
"Finally, the voice of reason."
"That makes no sense," Natalia said jump in, coming
to Blake’s defense. "If Blake doesn’t want to play
with guns she shouldn’t have to."
Olivia asked, "Play with guns?" while at the same
time Doris said, "No one’s talking about ‘playing’
at all." Both women sounded aggravated.
"You know what," Olivia said to Natalia. "I’ll
come over this week with the Glock and we can do some target
practice out at the farm. Wouldn’t be a bad idea for Rafe to
come over too. That way you can see that it’s not ‘playing,’
"Not okay. I don’t like guns," Natalia answered.
"I hated the fact you had it at the house before."
"Question," Doris began. "Let’s say someone
breaks into the farmhouse and they’re going to hurt you or
Olivia or even Emma. The only thing between you and the
attacker is Olivia’s Glock. What do you do?"
"That’s ridiculous," Natalia answered.
Olivia folded her arms across her chest. "I’d like to
know the answer. Because I sure know what the hell I would do.
I wouldn’t think twice about it either."
"You were ready to shoot Phillip earlier this year,"
Natalia offered, "…which proves Blake’s point that
guns can be dangerous. Heck, if I wasn’t there to talk you
down you might have actually done it."
The waiter arrived and could feeling the tension at the table.
He gingerly asked, "Did you ladies need a few more
"Yes, please," Olivia told him. He seemed thankful
for the reprieve and he quickly scurried away. Olivia turned
back to Natalia. "No arguments. I’m teaching you how to
shoot this weekend."
"And I don’t get a say in whether or-?"
"No," Olivia said cutting her off. "I don’t
care if you ever pick up a gun again. I just want to make sure
you know how to use mine. Lord knows – and no, I’m not
being blasphemous when I say that – Lord knows I never want
you to have to use it. However, I would feel better knowing
you’ve fired it at least once before. So please, for my
peace of mind, let me show you this weekend."
Natalia grinned slightly. "So..." she said changing
the subject. "What’s everyone going to have?"
"That’s it?" Blake asked her. "She ‘lays
down the law’ and you ‘fall in line’?"
Natalia shrugged. "She said please." Blake rolled
her eyes and Natalia chuckled and then looked solemn.
"Seriously, I can tell that this is important to Olivia
and it’s not about winning an argument. She thinks this will
make her feel better so…yeah, I’ll do it for her."
"It must be love," Blake remarked.
"Or being whipped," Doris muttered, which made Blake
smile. "So, what’s good?" Doris asked Olivia.
"The lasagna, but it’s not as good as Natalia’s,"
she complimented with a smile, which brought out Natalia’s
"Whipped," Doris mouthed to Blake and then pointed
Blake giggled and Olivia looked over at the pair.
"What?" she asked.
"Nothing," Doris lied. "I think I’ll go with
Having managed their way through dinner, the foursome now
stood at the small bar at Dominic's Restaurant.
"Whose idea was this again?" Olivia whispered to
Natalia fully aware she knew it was her girlfriend. They
watched Doris and Blake wagging their fingers into each
other's face at the other end a few feet away.
Natalia gently slapped Olivia's arm. "Hey," she
began. "…Blake asked me, alright? I just offered to
help." They both watched as Doris threw her hands up in
the air and rolled her eyes. "This isn't going well, is
it?" Natalia asked.
"No," Olivia sighed. "No, it is not," she
added very matter-of-factly. "Okay, we need to jump in
here before someone gets arrested...or worse."
"Come on," Natalia said as she motioned her head.
"Maybe if we leave they'll walk away."
As they closed the distance, they could hear the debate.
"Freedom isn't free," Doris told Blake. "The
war was inevitable."
Blake looked shocked and then paused a beat before she asked
in a incredulous tone, "A-are you kidding me?" She
then looked around them to see no one else standing at the
bar. Then she motioned around them. "You don't need to
tow the party line here Doris, okay? You can tell us what you
really think rather than spouting political rhetoric."
"Why is to so hard for you to believe I'm a
Blake opened her mouth, but no words came out. All she could
do was gesture to Doris with her hands. "You…" was
all she could say at first.
Doris looked over at Olivia. "Looks like I made another
woman speechless." She then turned back to Blake. "I
know it's hard for democrats like yourself to have an opinion
and stick to it, but try to form a coherent thought here,
Blake's eyes narrowed. "Do you even have a soul?"
"Oh, wow. Okay," Olivia said putting her hand on
Blake simply shrugged her off and continued to face Doris.
"I can't believe you actually have faith in a party that
was given a surplus of $230 billion but then, not only pissed
it away, but left us with trillions of dollars in debt because
of a war of convenience and not necessity. So again, I'll ask…are
"That's a myth you know," Doris said. "The
deficit was almost eliminated in 2000, but it never reached
zero--let alone a positive surplus number. In fact, the
growing deficits started in the year of the last Clinton
budget and not in the first year of the Bush
"That's a lie," Blake replied.
"That's the truth," Doris countered. "Do some
research and you'll see what I mean. Or just sit back and
listen to the democratic mouthpieces like Olbermann and Maddow
fill your head with nonsense."
The cola can that Blake held in her hand began to bend and the
liquid fizzled from the top slightly.
"Here, uh, lemme take that from ya," Olivia offered
as she tried to pull it from Blake's vice-like grip. She
grunted slightly when she managed to get it away from her.
After she rested it on the bar Natalia and Olivia both looked
at the can and then each other.
"Oh boy," Natalia muttered softly.
Blake's fists clinched at her side. "Your level of
patronizing behavior and shoveling of bullshit is
astounding," she told Doris.
"If the media didn't have a liberal bias you'd already
know what I'm saying is true," the mayor replied.
"The only thing that you're guilty of is not informing
yourself. And honestly, that's a shame."
Blake began to wave her hands and turned to Olivia. "I-I
can't deal with her anymore. You-you…" Blake took a
calming breath. She pulled her purse from the bar and put the
strap over her shoulder. "You ladies have a great
night," she told them all and swiftly left the
"I am soooo sorry," Natalia said to no one in
"Why?" Doris asked. "I had fun." Olivia
and Natalia both looked at her with a flabbergasted
expression. "What? It's true. I haven't had a good debate
like that in…forever. She was better than most. I have to
give her that."
"She hates you. You know that, right?" Olivia asked.
Doris shrugged. "Eh, as long as she doesn't spit in my
food or drinks at Company I'm good. I don't think she would
though. Her opinions are infantile, but overall she's pretty
Olivia chuckled in despondency of the failed evening. "Ya
know," she began. "There's a reason politics and
religion are two topics friends should ever discuss, which is
why I'm not going there, Doris. I'm just not."
"Well," Natalia offered. "I think we better
call it a night."
"Excellent idea," Olivia replied. She then turned to
Doris. "Sorry things didn't work out as planned."
Doris raised her glass. "Here's to the effort," she
added before taking a long drink.
Moments later the pair arrive back at the Beacon. Natalia
walked Olivia to her door, hand in hand.
"Well, we certainly didn't make a love connection
tonight, did we?" she teased.
"The sparks were flying," Olivia replied. "Just
not the kinds we expected. It's a shame actually because they
look cute together. You know? Like a couple." Olivia made
a round motion with her hands that silently spoke of
Natalia reached over and took Olivia's hands in hers. As they
stood face to face she could feel the older woman tense up.
"It's your sense of touch that matters most, isn't
it?" Olivia didn't answer the rhetorical question.
"I know because sometimes I take two steps forward; you
take one step back." Natalia moved and Olivia followed
suit, proving her point.
Natalia smiled. "But here's the great part about this dance,"
she said ignoring anything Olivia might have said. Her tongue
lazily licked her top lip and she felt a small amount of pride
when she realized how much of Olivia's attention she
commanded. "Eventually, as long as I keep moving forward,
I'll catch up. And when I do…" She took two more steps,
but this time Olivia didn't move. "…when I finally get
my hands and lips on you…" Olivia closed her eyes and
her breathing became shallow as Natalia came mere inches away
from her. "…it's going to be like a dam bursting. You
won't escape the flood. And mark my words. You better bring
your galoshes, Miss Spencer. You're gonna end up pretty
Natalia could hear Olivia's breath catch in the back of her
throat and the Latina smiled.
"Don't worry though," Natalia said and then took a
step back. "You're not ready yet… I'll… coax you
along…but I won't push."
Helpless – unable to move or speak – Olivia watched as
Natalia casually strolled to the elevator and pushed the
button. She turned and watched Olivia leaning against the
doorway of her suite, her hands clutching the molding for dear
life. She gave the hotel owner a short wave and then slipped
"Sweet dreams," she said softly.
Even as the doors were closing Natalia followed Doris's advice
to the end, not losing eye contact at all. Once away from
Natalia's stare, Olivia released the breath she'd been
"I'm-I'm-I'm not going to survive this," the older
Inside the elevator, Natalia slumped against one side and put
her hand up to her face. She then began to fan herself by
pulling her blouse away from her body in a quick and repeating
"I'm not going to survive this," she muttered.
"But it's working. It's working," she told herself.
"Just a little bit longer. Hold out a little bit more.
The elevator came to a stop suddenly interrupting her thoughts
and Natalia looked up to see she was on the third floor. She
straightened up as the doors opened and a middle-aged couple
boarded. The man pushed the close button and once more the
elevator was on its way, until it reached the second floor and
a family of four hopped on.
Glad to see business is good, Natalia thought as she
moved further back.
After the elevator lift came to a stop again the doors opened
and the family and middle-aged couple stepped off as Natalia
looked in her purse for her keys. Finding them, she looked up
and found Olivia gently pushing her back inside.
Olivia sounded winded. "You know I've run up and down
more stairs since you've come home than I have in my entire
life?" she asked.
Natalia grinned and looked like she was going to reply, but
Olivia forced her back inside the elevator. Her eyes pinned
Natalia from attempting any kind of retreat and she cut off
any kind of response with a hungry kiss.
Natalia returned it with just as much fervor; burying her
fingers into Olivia's hair while her other hand reached down
and found purchase against Olivia's hip, drawing her closer.
But after a few short kisses and pecks, Natalia pulled back
and said, "I said I won't push."
"I didn't," Olivia replied in a hoarse voice. She
reclaimed Natalia's lips again and took both of Natalia's
hands in hers and trapped them against the elevator wall.
The doors began to close.
Keeping her hands around Natalia's wrist, Olivia pressed the
button for her floor. Then she pressed the weight of her body
against Natalia's, making escape impossible. The younger woman
tried to free her hands to no avail. Olivia was having none of
that as she settled their thighs between each other, or at
least as much as she could manage from this position due to
Natalia's growing stomach.
Olivia couldn't stop kissing Natalia, even if her life
depended upon it, and when Natalia raised one leg to snake
around her calf, pulling her even closer Olivia worried for a
brief moment she might actually end up with a heart attack.
The flutter she felt was unlike anything she'd experienced.
"I want you…so much," the hotelier declared as she
finally released Natalia and allowed her hands to wander
elsewhere around the woman's curves and valleys.
Natalia began panting. The feeling of Olivia's own hands, lips
and teeth were overwhelming and it seemed like they were all
everywhere at once. She felt lightheaded and she had to use
one hand to support herself on the nearby squared molding of
the elevator. The other hand was buried in Olivia's hair,
egging her on.
"Are you really… gonna take me… in the
elevator?" Natalia asked. "Not that I'm
complaining," she quickly added. "'cause...."
Natalia seemed to lose her train of thought and gave up
uttering, "Oh, God…Te quiero," before her lips
captured Olivia's mouth.
Olivia whimpered from behind Natalia's lips. She pulled back
and trailed her tongue from Natalia's collarbone to her
earlobe, stopping at particular areas to nip and suck the
"I'm gonna take you everywhere in this hotel," she
huskily declared in a soft whisper against Natalia's ear.
Natalia's guttural moan reached Olivia's ears and the hotelier
found herself making a similar throaty noise in response.
Natalia's hand released the molding and reached out, grabbing
Olivia's center. This action elicited an even louder and more
forceful growl from the older woman. Seconds later, Natalia
heard the elevator bell ding and she pulled back, which made
Olivia whine in response to the departure of her lips.
"We're here," Natalia replied as she motioned her
head slightly to the door.
Olivia seemed almost annoyed by the interruption, but the
promise of what lay before them improved her mood. Quickly,
she took Natalia by the hand and led her from the elevator.
She briskly walked to her door and swiped her pass card. Once
the door started to open Olivia pulled Natalia inside and
kicked it closed.
In one sweep, Olivia pulled her shirt from her body and
resumed her kissing of Natalia's neck. The Latina graciously
complied by allowing her head to drop back, giving Olivia even
greater access. While taking fists of long black hair in her
hands, Olivia licked and sucked the flesh so graciously given
to her as she kicked off her shoes at the same time.
She worked Natalia toward the bed and the younger woman lost
her balanced when the back of her legs hit the edge of the
bed. Tumbling backward, Olivia steadied Natalia's descent as
best as she could.
"Are you okay?" Olivia asked concerned, given
"Yeah." Natalia smiled. "Soft landing. Besides,
I'm tougher than I look."
Olivia smiled in response. "You look beautiful," she
Natalia looked slightly embarrassed. "Well, I no longer
have that 'Olympic volleyball player' body you were so fond of
earlier this year."
Olivia grinned blatantly. "Can I see?" she asked
playfully as she took two steps closer.
Olivia began to play with the hem of Natalia's shirt. Shyly,
the pregnant woman nodded. Eagerly yet gently, Olivia reached
out and pulled the material up and over Natalia's head. Once
half naked Natalia felt totally exposed. Picking up on her
awkwardness, Olivia used one hand to gently push Natalia's
back against the bed. Then she leaned over her and used one
hand to travel down Natalia's neck, between her bra-clad
breasts and over her protruding belly.
Natalia got a look of concern as she watched Olivia tear up.
"Having second thoughts?" she asked.
Olivia cleared her throat as she shook her head. "Do you
"This child is mine." Olivia ran her hand over
Natalia began to smile.
"This child wouldn't be here if not for you. The reason I
conceived this child is because I was running from this,"
she said as she took Olivia's hand and lead it back to cup her
face. She planted a tender kiss in Olivia's palm. "I've
never wanted anyone as much as I want you - all those years I
spent longing for Nikky was never as powerful as my desire for
you." This time Natalia planted a kiss on the pulse point
of Olivia's wrist. "I know for a fact that you ARE my
heart's true, and only, desire. I know that for certain now.
And I swear to you, and God, I'll spend the rest of my life
Olivia reached out with a growing smile and caressed Natalia's
cheek with the back of her fingertips. The look of adoration
though began to shift to one of desire again. She reached down
and took Natalia's hand in hers, leading them to the button
and the fly of her jeans.
"Show me," was all she said.
Natalia smiled as she took possession of the denim in her
hands. She unbuttoned the waistband and slowly lowered the
zipper. She then tugged the material past Olivia's hips but
before pushing it down Olivia's thighs Natalia stopped and
used the garment to pull Olivia closer and kiss her exposed
lower stomach, just above her silk panty line.
Natalia inhaled deeply and groaned in arousal.
"This is so new," she said as she looked up at
The older woman began to stroke Natalia's hair. "I know.
I've never been with a woman either."
"Not that," Natalia answered. "I've just…"
Natalia took a deep breath again, but this time she pulled
Olivia closer by grabbing her buttock and forcing her forward.
"I've never wanted anyone this much – ever. You're so
beautiful and you smell divine and…God, just the scent of
you makes my mouth water."
Olivia's breath caught at the admission. Of course the feeling
of Natalia's fingertips kneading her ass didn't hamper how she
was feeling either. Olivia pulled Natalia's head back toward
her stomach again and the younger woman began planting
delicate kisses there as she worked Olivia out of the jeans.
She pushed Olivia back to stand out of them as she herself
stood up and removed her pants and panties in one stroke.
"Hey," Olivia complied in mock-anger. "I wanted
to take those off."
"Sorry," Natalia replied. "I just want to be
naked with you," she said as she unfastened her bra next.
Olivia's eyes widened in both surprise and desire. "I'm
tired of waiting," Natalia told her. Now completely naked
and exposed, she sat back down on the bed as she looked up at
Olivia who was still half dressed. Although she was sure of
the answer she'd get, she still asked, "Are you going to
Olivia closed her eyes brief and groaned. When she opened them
she could only push one word from her lips.
Olivia placed her one knee between Natalia's legs at the edge
of the mattress. Before she could even protest Natalia had the
clasp of Olivia's bra off and the older woman's breasts freed
in a matter of seconds. Not wasting a moment, Natalia did her
best to take one breast in each hand bringing them both into
her mouth with a moan of delight.
Olivia's hands shot to Natalia's shoulder, trying to steady
"I'm supposed to be…taking you… remember?"
Olivia struggled to say.
Natalia released Olivia's breasts and looked up.
"Let's take each other instead," she said
mischievously and licked her lips for emphasis.
Olivia grinned for just a brief moment before her lips
collided with Natalia's. She worked her way down until she had
Natalia's back to the bed. Taking a place at her side, Olivia
continued to explore Natalia's mouth with her own, her lips
nipping at the soft flesh repeatedly. After a few moments,
Natalia let out a groan and stood up.
Olivia looked startled and then concerned as Natalia stood at
the side of the bed. She then watched as Natalia reached for
Olivia's hips and pulled the panties completely off. She
tossed them over her shoulder and then physically pulled
Olivia's bottom to the end of the bed.
Still laying on her back, confused, Olivia asked,
"Natalia? Are you all-?"
The question died on her lips when she watched Natalia swiftly
move to her knees and felt the woman throw her legs over her
shoulders. When Natalia's tongue made contact with her damp
lips all coherent thought left Olivia in an instant. One hand
gripped the bedspread while the other found it's way to the
back of Natalia's head, praising her efforts.
After a few laps, Natalia began to nibble Olivia's inner
thigh. In between bites, she softly spoke.
"You taste so sweet," she said as her tongue made a
slow, long pass that went deeply between Olivia's lips and
over her clit. The older woman could only whimper in response.
"I want to devour you," Natalia declared in a husky
voice. She then pulled Olivia's pearl into her mouth with a
light sucking motion.
"Oh, God," Olivia cried out.
After a few moments and a couple of grunts from Olivia,
Natalia asked, "Guess I'm doing things right?"
Olivia could only nod enthusiastically, which made Natalia
smile even broader.
"How about this?" the Latina asked before moving on
to her next tactic. Using just the tip of her tongue she began
to bat at Olivia's clit as fast as she could. After a few
moments she sucked the bundle of nervous between her lips
again, giving a few light, gentle tugs.
Again, at first all Olivia could do was nod when Natalia
glanced up for approval. But finally, Olivia managed to find
"You have no idea how many times I imaged seeing you just
like that, between my thighs."
Natalia smiled again for just a moment and then began to lick
Olivia again in a long trail that went from her anus to her
"So how's the reality feel?" Natalia asked.
"More than I imagined," Olivia offered in a gravelly
Natalia's hands reached up and began to stroke Olivia's
"When you're aroused your voice drops, just like when
you're angry…It's very sexy…Come on, Baby…" Another
long lick accompanied the words. "Talk to me."
Olivia let out a deep laugh and stroked Natalia's hair.
"Talk? I'm lucky I can still breath with what you're
"Fine," Natalia relented and placed her hands on
Olivia's hips pulling her closer. "I'll just imagine that
voice while I feast then."
Without giving Olivia a chance to reply Natalia's mouth dove
back down into her lover's center with such fervor that the
older woman's hips left the bed, striving to meet her lover's
tongue. Olivia's hand shot to the back to Natalia's head, this
time holding her in place and leading her to areas that needed
extra attention. She began to rotate her hips and buck against
Natalia's mouth and although it felt delightful, Olivia wanted
more. She began to stop her movements.
"Natalia?" Olivia called down softly and with such
uncertainty that Natalia looked surprised. "Will you…?"
"Stop?" Natalia asked nervously, hoping it wasn't
Olivia shook her head fiercely. "No! God, no… I just…
I wanna feel you inside me."
Natalia smiled and put two fingers into her mouth seductively
as Olivia watched.
"You want these?" she asked holding her fingers up.
Olivia nodded enthusiastically.
With great ease she slide them inside the older woman.
"Ohhh, yessss," Olivia hissed and began to grind
against the offered hand. When Natalia's lips returned to
their ministrations Olivia cried out something incoherently.
Although Natalia didn't understand the words, she understood
Olivia was on fire….and she was the cause…
Natalia’s free hand reached up and took Olivia’s from the
bedspread. While intertwining their fingers, the younger woman
continued to suckle as best she could from Olivia’s sex
while her fingers continued to stroke away. Not only could
both women feel the intenseness of Olivia’s soaking arousal,
her scent filled the room.
But it wasn’t Olivia’s sent alone. Natalia felt an ache
deep within herself, and a passion so powerful, that she could
feel her inner-thighs growing wetter by the minute. She never
imagined that giving pleasure could be so exciting.
And the sounds that Olivia made. Good heavens. She had only
two prior lovers in her life and neither was very vocal. Gus
said very little and Frank, aside from a few grunts prior to
climax, said nothing.
Olivia, however, she was like a fire sucking the oxygen from
every surrounding area of the heat. Natalia wasn’t sure if
Olivia’s passion was the fact it had been years since she
had release with a partner or if this was a regular
Either way she loved it and wanted to find a way to make sure
it happened every time they were together. Every noise she
made was positively thrilling – her sighs; her moans; her
words she tried to say yet failed to get out. Of course there
were the ones she did manage to say like ‘faster,’ ‘harder,’
Olivia quickly shook her hand free from Natalia’s and
literally grabbed her lover behind an ear as she buried her
fingers in Natalia’s hair. Her other hand shot to Natalia’s
wrist holding her fingers in place.
Natalia watched in awe as Olivia’ raised her hips high and
she screamed out as much as her name as she could.
"Natalllliiii…" She collapsed and after taking a
steadying breath said, "ahhh," both in satisfaction,
and a way of finishing her lover’s name.
Natalia found herself breathing hard just from watching Olivia
After a few light kisses that made Olivia literally twitch,
Natalia asked coyly, "So, I did okay then?"
Olivia moved to her elbows with a look of wonder.
"No, that totally sucked. Whatever happens, never do THAT
again," she said sarcastically.
"I can do better next time," Natalia said playing
Olivia laughed as she sat up.
"If you do BETTER, Sweetie, you just might kill me,"
she added as she helped Natalia get to the bed.
Once upright, the raven-haired woman didn’t stay that way
for long. She pulled Olivia down to the bed while they both
relaxed in each other’s arms. Natalia rested her head
against Olivia’s shoulder as her finger made lazy figure
eights on Olivia’s stomach. The Latina cleared her throat.
"Honestly now; no jokes…Is that what you
"That was more than what I expected," Olivia
"You don’t have to lie-."
Olivia rolled Natalia over as one hand cupped the side of the
insecure woman’s face.
"Rather than argue…why don’t I tell you, and show
you, how wonderful you make me feel?"
Olivia rolled Natalia completely onto her back. She smiled as
her thumb gently caressed her lover's cheek.
"You have the most beautiful eyes I've ever seen,"
Olivia complimented quietly. She was rewarded with a dimpled
smile that made her smile even broader in return. She then
leaned over and kissed each dimple. "And you're right, I
think I do have a weakness for dimples…but yours ARE the
Natalia giggled. "You're going to make me blush."
"Please do," Olivia teased. "I want to see if
you turn red all over or if it's just your face."
Natalia laughed and closed her eyes. "Oh boy."
Olivia looked down and snorted.
"Yep, it's all of you," she said taking in Natalia's
Natalia playfully swatted Olivia's arm.
"Stop. You're making it worse."
"I'll kiss it and make it better," Olivia said as
she leaned over and kissed Natalia's collarbone. "How's
Natalia pursed her lips. "Ehh, it's a start," she
said sounding bored.
Olivia moved to her elbow and looked down at Natalia who now
wore a confident smirk.
"You sure are a demanding one," she said playfully.
Natalia swallowed hard. She looked nervous for a split second
before confidence and desire overtook her.
"If I was demanding I'd do something like this…"
She then clutched Olivia by the back of the head and led the
woman's lips straight to her erect right nipple.
Instinctively, Olivia's lips complied and wrapped around the
perk point, which constricted even more with just the
slightest amount of suction. After a few moments of letting
her lips and tongue play, Olivia nipped and sucked her way to
"I love the way your body reacts to mine," she
whispered. Her fingertips began to roll the nipple between her
thumb and forefinger. Every few seconds she'd release the tip
and take the entire mound of Natalia's breast in her hand,
giving it a firm, but not violent, squeeze. It was just enough
pressure to show the intense desire she had, but tender enough
not to hurt her. Then she'd resume her fingertip rolls.
Natalia couldn't contain her moan, and in truth, she didn't
want to. She wanted Olivia to understand exactly what she was
feeling and after a few minutes she began to realize why
Olivia was unable to talk to her moments before.
"You like this, don't you?" Olivia asked, her voice
heavy with reserved-desire that threatened to break free. All
Natalia could do was nod. "Not easy to talk when you're
this turned on while someone's touching you, is it?" she
teased, as if reading her mind.
Natalia had to chuckle now and she took Olivia's wrist to stop
her movements for a moment. "You win, okay? It's harder
than it looks."
Olivia reached back for the nipple again that was now the
texture of a pebble. "I'd say it's quite hard
actually," she retorted as she played with the firm
nipple again. That remark earned her another light slap.
"Let's see if we can find anything else that's
Olivia reached down between Natalia's legs and without warning
ran her fingertips lightly over the woman's engorged clitoris.
Natalia arched up into the touch.
"Whadda ya know?" Olivia teased. "I found
something else that's hard."
Natalia's eyes closed, but she had a huge smile on her face.
Olivia began to gently work the bud, sliding it between her
middle and index finger. Natalia's smile fell soon though and
her look of amusement was replaced by ardent desire. Her jaw
clinched and her body tensed as her hips began to move in time
with Olivia's hand and the older woman felt her mouth go dry
as she watched her lover start bucking against her. Olivia
didn't stop moving her hand at all as she positioned her mouth
close to Natalia's ear as possible.
"So you like my voice, huh?" Olivia asked her.
Natalia nodded and managed to strain out, "Love it."
Olivia grinned as her fingers dipped further south, and
running between Natalia's soaked lips. Natalia groaned and
arched even more.
"Obviously," Olivia began and then ran her tongue
along the outside of Natalia's ear, "the more I talk, the
wetter you seem to get…but I want you to do something for
me, Baby…" Olivia took her hand away and Natalia
whimpered a protest.
The dark-haired woman watched helplessly as Olivia moved away
and began to kneel next to her. "I want you to
relax," Olivia told her.
"You know you're asking the impossible, right? I'm as far
from relaxed as I can be now. I'm as taunt as a bowstring
"I know," Olivia answered. "So I'm going to
help you," she said as she went down and began rubbing
Natalia's feet and ankles. "Just relax and let your
muscles loosen up. I swear I won't stop until you're
satisfied. You have my word," Olivia swore. "The
damn hotel could be on FIRE and I promise I won't stop,"
she emphasized. "Just trust me, okay?"
Natalia focused on Olivia's face and although she saw desire
there she also saw love, devotion and a consideration she'd
never had with any other lover.
Her heart melted and she nodded.
Natalia lay on the bed, totally naked and exposed. Her knees
were bent while her feet lay flat against the bed. At her side
was Olivia. The older woman knelt there, looking at Natalia
with an adoration neither woman had ever experienced before.
Natalia reached out and squeezed the closest part of Olivia’s
body – her knee.
"I trust you," Natalia whispered as she answered her
Olivia beamed in response and continued her massage of Natalia’s
ankles and feet.
"Then close your eyes," Olivia told her. "Just…feel,
okay?" Natalia did as Olivia instructed and the older
woman was pleased when, after a few minutes, she watched
Natalia sink further into the bed. "Good," Olivia
told her. "Just enjoy; unwind."
Natalia cleared her throat; her eyes still closed. "This
"No one’s ever done this for you while you were
pregnant, huh?" Olivia asked knowingly.
Natalia moved to her elbows with the realization.
"No," she remarked.
Olivia ran a hand up Natalia side, making the woman whimper,
before gently pushing her shoulder back down to the mattress.
"Stay loose," Olivia commanded and Natalia complied
by lying back down and closing her eyes. "I remember how
much my ankles and feet hurt sometimes with Ava and Emma. What
I wouldn’t have given for this," she mentioned as she
continued to use her fingers and palms to rub the sore muscles
and tendons. After a few moments Natalia giggled.
"Ticklish?" Olivia asked.
"No, I was just thinking…"
"Is it possible to be relaxed AND turned on at the same
Olivia grinned devilishly. "Yes." She then
positioned herself between Natalia’s legs and started to rub
her calves, which elicited a moan of relief, and desire, from
the pregnant woman.
After a few moments, Natalia giggled again and Olivia smiled.
"Still surprised how good this feels?" Olivia asked
"No," Natalia replied. "Not that this doesn’t
feel good. It feels wonderful," she amended. Her eyes
were still closed as she began to stretch out. "I just
can’t believe I waited this long to let you get your hands
Now it was Olivia’s turn to moan.
"Let’s not focus on lost time," Olivia managed to
reply. "Let’s just focus on the fact I want my hands on
you for the rest of my life. Deal?"
Natalia made an affirmative noise as Olivia’s fingertips and
ball of her hand began to rub the top of Natalia’s thighs.
When her hands worked their way behind Natalia’s thighs and
began to rub, the younger woman naturally raised her hips
closer to Olivia, giving the older woman a full view of her
Olivia’s hands didn’t stop moving. In fact, they worked
their way behind Natalia’s buttock and began to massage the
flesh. Upon seeing the glistening at the apex of Natalia’s
legs, Olivia began to salivate and she could feel herself
starting to perspire just slightly.
The sounds that Natalia was beginning to make – the light
whimpering and breathy sighs – weren’t helping Olivia’s
resolve of relaxing Natalia’s muscles. With each passing
moment it was becoming a private hell for Olivia. Did she
continue to massage her or dive headfirst and taste Natalia’s
nectar that was in front of her; teasing her?
When Natalia moaned again and began to stroke Olivia’s arm,
the choice was made for her. Olivia’s head disappeared below
Natalia’s growing belly and although all Natalia could see
was the top of Olivia’s head she could certainly feel her
lover’s tongue. She cried out and took possession of the
back of Olivia’s head, grabbing a fist full of hair. Olivia
quickly pulled away.
"I’m sorry," Natalia apologized, letting her go.
"Did I hurt you?"
"Not at all," Olivia replied. "And sometimes a
little pain is a good thing," she said coyly. "You
were just getting too tense again. Just relax, Sweetie. Let it
all build higher and higher. You’ll have a more powerful
organism that way. I promise." Natalia looked away shyly.
"You don’t believe me?" Olivia replied.
"It’s not that. I just…Don’t laugh at me, but I don’t
think I’ve ever had an orgasm."
Olivia began to grin.
"I said don’t laugh at me," Natalia repeated
"Oh, Baby, I’m not," Olivia promised the smile now
gone. "Honestly, I’m not. And the truth is I thought
that might be a possibility. You’ve always been a good
Catholic girl and Catholic girls aren’t supposed to… explore,
are they? Not with other people or even themselves? Am I
right?" Natalia closed her eyes in frustration and
nodded. "Shhh," Olivia said shushing away her
Natalia opened her eyes and faced Olivia again. "How am I
supposed to let you know what I like if I don’t even
know?" Natalia asked.
"Let’s find out together," Olivia replied in a
sexy tenor, her voice dropping again. "I’m game if you
Olivia lay down beside Natalia and rested her temple on her
fist as she looked at the naked woman beside her. Her other
hand lazily caressed the growing baby bump of Natalia's
"Let's call this Sex Tips 101," Olivia said, which
made Natalia chuckled.
"I think I might need the 100 course first," Natalia
"Honey, you're pregnant. You're already a mom. AND you
made me climax tonight – you're not THAT much of a
novice," Olivia countered.
Natalia barked out a laugh and reached out and stroked
"Do me a favor?" she asked softly.
"Anything." There was no hiding the affection in
Natalia smiled even wider as her fingers continued to glide
across Olivia's face. She turned slightly to face her more
"Even if there are times I act like I don't enjoy your
jokes, just remember I do."
"I know you do," Olivia replied. "That's why I
don't stop telling them, even if you don't laugh."
"You do make me laugh, you do, and although I've always
tried to stay positive, the real truth is… I haven't laughed
very much in my life – not until you anyway. So, promise me,
okay? Even if I complain, realize I enjoy every smile you've
given me and I've even enjoyed a few scowls you've
Olivia's wander hand took purchase of Natalia's face.
"I live to make you smile," Olivia said with a grin,
but slowly she began to frown "That's why the leaving…that's
why it was so hard for me when you just left…I've never
loved anyone as much as you and, believe me, I've fallen head
over heels before in my life – and always with the wrong
person it seemed. I thought this time was different and then
when you went..." Olivia shook her head. "I'm sorry.
We're lying naked in bed. Now's not the time to get into
"Anytime you want to discuss it is the 'right
time,'" Natalia replied. "I'm never going to have a
grand gesture that will take that pain away. I see that now.
The only thing that's going to help us is if you keep talking
and I keep listening or showing you how much you mean."
Olivia began to grin. "And mind blowing sex… that, uh…
Natalia and Olivia both began to chuckle.
"Well, I don't think it hurt…did it?" Natalia
replied. Then she paused a few beats and asked, "Not
physically, but emotionally…I mean… are you okay?"
Olivia smiled and then nodded.
"Yeah, I am. In fact, I don't think too many gestures are
grander than sharing your body or bringing someone
Natalia sat up quickly. "I don't want you to think I did
this to manipulate your feelings, Oliv-."
Olivia rose to meet her and put a finger over her lips
silencing her. "I know you didn't. And I didn't bring you
here with the intent that you prove anything to me. I brought
you back here for two simple reasons. One – I love you and
always will. And two…you turn me on to no end. Case
"Feeling's mutual," she replied. "I want you
for the rest of my life, so thank you for giving me this
chance. And even though I know you're not capable of believing
it right now …you won't regret it."
"Well, how about we work on building that trust a bit
more, hmm? After all, I made a promise, remember?" Olivia
asked with an alluring timbre in her voice.
"You can do whatever you want to me," Natalia
offered as she stroked Olivia's arm.
Olivia took a ragged breath at the thought of anything.
In fact, over a thousand scenarios seemed to enter her mind at
once, but she shook off the overwhelming urge to devour her
then and there. Instead, she simply gave a short nod.
"Three ground rules. First rule – if you climax tonight
that's wonderful and if you don't, that's wonderful too –
just as long as you learn one new thing that you enjoy. Just
one - that's all I ask. Agreed?" Natalia nodded.
"Two, if I do anything that scares or hurts you, you'll
tell me. Okay?" Again, Natalia nodded. "And three…don't
forget to breathe." Natalia looked confused. "Sounds
crazy, huh? When people become sexually excited or they think
they're near climax they usually hold their breath. That's bad
because if you take breaths then it keeps oxygen in your
system and your reaction is even stronger."
Natalia giggled. "You really DO know a lot about
Olivia nodded and then leaned down and gently kissed the area
between Natalia's cheek and earlobe.
"Yes, I do, Sweetie. And I'm going to share everything I
know with you. Not tonight of course, - after all we have
jobs, children, et cetera... but… we'll get there – just
like we always do."
"Well, I know one thing you do that I really enjoy,"
Natalia told her.
"Mmm, what's that, Baby?"
Natalia reached and pulled Olivia's face closer to her.
"This," she said as she kissed her slowly and
sensuously, exploring each other's mouths for a few minutes.
"God, you're a fantastic kisser," she complimented,
their breath intermingling.
Olivia grabbed a fist full of Natalia's hair and began to kiss
her pulse point at her neck.
"Confession time?" Olivia asked. Not waiting for an
answer she said, "You are the best kisser I've ever
known. And I'm not just saying that to build your confidence
or ego. You truly are."
Natalia watched as Olivia pulled back to lean directly over
her face. The pair stared into each other's eyes for a long
"And this too," Natalia replied. "I like this
when you lock eyes with me so intensely. I see all the love
and devote you have and it…"
"It makes me want to do this," Natalia said as she
rose up and captured Olivia's lips with hers. Her hand grabbed
the back of Olivia's head gently, and with relative ease she
rolled the older woman to her back. As she was partially lying
on top of her, Natalia began devouring her mouth. After a few
moans, Olivia captured Natalia's face in her hands and rolled
her to her back once more so she was on top again.
"I'm in charge now, remember?" Olivia asked looking
down at her. "You had your fun – now it's my
"I can't help it," Natalia giggled. "You make
"Fuck?" Olivia asked bluntly.
The smile Natalia wore fell and the look of sheer longing now
stood in its place. She nodded.
"Yeah," she said softly, yet ardently, as she licked
her lips. "You make me wanna fuck." Natalia began to
grin. "I liked that too," she admitted after a
"What?" Olivia asked.
"I like it when you talk dirty, but I like it when I talk
A devious smile washed over Olivia's face.
"Ohhh, realllly. Well then…what would you like me to do
Natalia? Tell me."
Natalia bit her lip for a moment and in a timid voice she
said, "Fuck me."
Olivia looked around the room for a moment. "We're all
alone…Say it louder."
Natalia grinned and in a louder voice she said, "Fuck
"Oh, baby. I've heard you bitch me out lots of times.
You've ordered me around night and day. Say it like you mean
Natalia's eyes became hooded with desire and she grabbed
Olivia by the back of the head. Her breathing became shallow.
"You're making me so wet," she confessed, her voice
dropping an octave in her growing desire.
"Then say it," Olivia taunted playfully.
Natalia took a deep breath and tightened her hold on her
lover's hair, pulling her closer. She began to lick and suck
the older woman's exposed neck.
"Olivia Spencer," Natalia announced in a confident
and wanton voice, "Fuck me."
Olivia smiled for only a few moments. She pulled away and
placed her body on all fours over Natalia. She leaned her
torso forward so her lips could capture Natalia's breasts. The
position left her derrière exposed. Seizing the opportunity,
Natalia reached up and grabbed the woman by her ass and
squeezed, digging her fingernails in just slightly.
Olivia suddenly threw her head back and groaned, "God,
"Sorry," Natalia quickly apologized.
"No, no," Olivia corrected her quickly. "Don't
stop. Doris was right. It feels…oh god, yeah."
Olivia immediately returned to worshiping Natalia's breasts
with the lips, teeth and tongue. With desire and a renewed
confidence, Natalia grabbed Olivia's buttocks again and each
time Olivia did something that she enjoyed, Natalia would dig
her nails into Olivia's flesh, just somewhat, to show her
satisfaction without words.
Olivia's lips began to pluck at the taunt nipple and Natalia
groaned, "Yeah, I like that. I like that a lot."
Olivia rose up so she could look down at Natalia. She took the
younger woman's hands in hers and placed them over Natalia's
own breasts. The younger woman looked confused at first.
"It's okay to touch yourself," Olivia told her.
"I want you to explore yourself just as much as you
wanted to explore me."
Natalia wasn't moving so Olivia placed her hands over
Natalia's to give the woman greater confidence. After a few
moments of gliding Natalia's hands Olivia let go and watched
as Natalia began to pitch and squeeze her own breasts. Olivia
stayed straddled over Natalia's hips, just south of the
growing baby bump. She too began to play with her own breasts.
"Here," Olivia said as she took own breast in her
hand and raised it to her own mouth. She began to suck on the
harden nipple and she heard Natalia's breath catch and hold.
"Remember rule three," Olivia said release her own
breast from her mouth. "Breathe."
Natalia took a deep breath and watched as Olivia motioned her
head toward Natalia to try what she just did. Although a bit
nervous, Natalia licked her lips quickly and then pulled her
breast toward her face and her lips snagged the nipple into
her mouth. She gave a brief suck and then moaned at the
Olivia began to sway and she could feel a brand-new wetness
flood her center at the sight of Natalia explore, and
enjoying, her own body.
"God, you look so fucking sexy right now," Olivia
managed to mutter.
Natalia grinned and released her breast.
"Turnabout's fair play," she said as she glanced
around the room. "We're all alone. Say it louder."
Natalia became the tease. She then took her own breast back
into her mouth, almost as if taunting Olivia with the fact she
had the nipple instead of her. Plus, this time she arched her
back and she groaned.
Upon seeing the wanton display of her lover starting to please
herself again, Olivia found herself falling forward on her
palms so she was inches away from Natalia's lips that were
devouring her own breast.
"You look so fucking sexy right now," Olivia
repeated in a firm, louder and more demanding voice.
This time she leaned over and both of their tongues fought for
control over which one would get to worship Natalia's breast.
Suddenly the younger woman gave up and grabbed Olivia by the
back of the head and she said, "I need…I…I'm not
sure, Olivia…I'm just… I'm on fire."
Olivia reached down and without build up or warning, she ran
her fingers across Natalia's drenched sex. The younger woman's
hips rose to meet her hand. The older woman then looked down
with a sense of wide-eyed wonder.
"You are so incredibly wet right now," she remarked.
"That's just…that is so absolutely hot, Baby."
Natalia began to physical pant. "Do what I did," she
ordered but then said, "Please…" as an after
Olivia smiled devilishly.
"Please what?" she ribbed as she began to lick her
fingers that were covered in Natalia's arousal.
After a deep moan of yearning, Natalia firmly, yet gently,
pushed on Olivia's shoulders, guiding her down to her soaked
"Your mouth. On me. Right now."
That's all she had to say. Olivia never moved so quickly to
get between anyone else's legs in her life.
Divine. It's the only word that Olivia could use to describe
how Natalia's arousal tasted. She was musky and sweet and
slippery and…her scent… that was just incredible. Taking
her own advice, Olivia continued breathing too, inhaling the
smell of Natalia's passion.
Natalia's passion for her – just her; no one else.
As Olivia worked her hands under Natalia's bottom and her
mouth laid claim to the younger woman's center, she knew at
that moment, without any doubt…Natalia was hers. Whether she
would stick around though was another matter. Olivia quickly
pushed her insecurity aside and instead focused on the here
And right here Natalia was spreading her legs wider, pulling
her closer, allowing her to explore her intimately in a way
few people, if anyone ever had. And now she had Natalia and
she didn't want to let go…ever.
But Olivia wasn't greedy in her quest to take in Natalia - not
at all. She was quite meticulous about where and how she used
her tongue. She first ran it through Natalia's folds, licking
up the wetness that had gathered there. She found, however,
that the woman offered an endless stream of ardor between her
legs. So no matter how much she consumed her, Natalia was like
a fresh spring that never grew dry. And aside from tasting
Natalia, Olivia also enjoyed teasing her and hearing the small
whimpers come each time she'd let her tongue tickle Natalia's
clitoris, ever so slightly, without making full contact.
Natalia, for her part, had never experienced anything quite
like this. While it's true she herself had just captured
Olivia with her mouth in such a way that evening, she'd never
experience such satisfaction herself. Gus had tried once to
bring her oral pleasure, but nothing compared to what Olivia
was instilling within her now.
For years the church had told her this act alone – genders
aside – was a dirty and a sinful act. It had nothing to do
with procreation and everything to do with lust, desire and
sexual greed. Natalia had questioned much of her church's
teachings in the last few weeks, but right now this rule was
definitely not one open to debate in her eyes. She knew as she
felt Olivia lapping at her center and making her own sounds of
satisfaction that there was nothing dirty about what was
happening at all. It was a loving, intimate act that spoke
volumes to their dedication and amour for each other. But in
the end none of that was what mattered most. The bottom line
It felt fucking fantastic, so much so that Natalia
uncontrollably vocalized it.
"Fuck," she sighed, making Olivia whimper since her
mouth was otherwise occupied. But as wonderful as it was
feeling, Natalia wanted more. Unseen by her, Olivia was
already putting her fingers in her own mouth getting them wet.
Natalia began to ask, "Will you-?" but didn't say
more because Olivia was already pushing three fingers into her
with ease; filling her. "…do that," Natalia
finished with a grin, satisfied in the fact that Olivia had
read her body before she even had.
Olivia kept her fingers buried in her lover, but she moved to
rest her elbow so she could look up at Natalia. She began to
move in a slow, but rhythmic fashion, sliding deep inside, but
she stopped just shy of fully coming out. With each thrust she
allowed her thumb to tickle Natalia's clit, just slightly.
"How about this?" Olivia asked, her voice deep;
smoky. "Do you like me filling you?"
Natalia reached down and continuously pushed Olivia's hair
behind her ear in affection. She nodded, but said, "I
like that thumb more I think."
Olivia grinned wickedly.
She pushed deep inside Natalia, but this time instead of
recoiling or teasing, she let her thumb brush back and forth
over Natalia's clit repeatedly. Olivia watched in delight as
Natalia raised her ass off the bed and bared down on her hand
even more, striving for more contact. At that point, Olivia
stopped moving altogether and she just watched in wonder and
desire as Natalia began to ride against her hand with abandon.
The younger woman couldn't describe how incredible it felt to
be taken and possessed by this woman. How many times did she
watch Olivia typing, writing notes…hell, buttering a slice
of bread…and wish she had those fingers on her; in her;
possessing her? The fantasy of it paled in utter comparison to
what she was feeling now.
Natalia's breaths were coming in short pants, but she was
still breathing. She figured if she stopped and held her
breath that Olivia might take her hand away, and at this
moment, she didn't want to stop for anything. Let the hotel
burn down. Let Frank, Rafe and half of Springfield open that
door. She didn't give a damn. She wasn't about to stop for
anyone or anything. It felt too wonderful; it felt…
That's how Natalia would describe it – blissful; heavenly.
She felt like God had giving her a gift for her and her alone.
That gift was Olivia Spencer and she had every intention of
enjoying it to the fullest – the rest of the world be
She couldn't believe how energized she felt or how the feeling
of desire just kept rising higher and higher. Just when she
thought she'd reached the pinnacle she'd find her exhilaration
climb even higher. It was then that she felt a clinching deep
within her. It was so powerful, and unlike anything she'd ever
Olivia was watching Natalia intensely and saw how the look of
utter arousal turned into one of wide-eyed wonder and…fear?…
Something was amiss – she could tell, but before she could
ask Natalia spoke.
"Okay," she said taking hold of Olivia's hand.
"Maybe, we oughta…I don't know. Slow down?" she
Olivia gently slid her hand from Natalia's center and moved to
lie next to her side. Both women were still breathing hard.
"Did I scare you, Natalia? I told you to be honest with
"I never…It was like I felt this fluttering I never
felt and there was this tightening and…That's never
happened," she tried to explain. "I'm saying this
all wrong, aren't I?"
Olivia buried her face into Natalia's neck and began to plant
affectionate kisses. She did it for two reasons. She wanted to
feel physically closer to Natalia while showing her affection,
but she also wanted to hide her growing smile. She didn't want
Natalia to feel self-conscious about her lack of sexual
"Would you like to know what that feeling was,
Sweetie?" Olivia replied. She still didn't look up. She
could feel Natalia nodding against her head. "It's the
onset of an orgasm. You know it's been years since I had my
first one, but to be honest, the first time it happened to me…it
worried me a little too." Olivia then rose up, the smile
gone from her face. "It felt wonderful, but it felt scary
at the same time," she remembered.
Natalia saw Olivia's adoration reflected back at her.
"Really?" she asked. "You're not making that up
to make me feel better, are you?"
Olivia shook her head. "No," she replied. "I
was alone in my room and…let's just say I found all the
right moves – like you did tonight, by the way," she
complimented, making Natalia smiled. "And the first time
it began to happen I thought, 'Whoa! What's this?' but when I
kept going; kept moving past that first…shock…then…oh
wow." Olivia finished with a chuckle.
She sat up next to Natalia and said, "We've got two
choices, Sweetie. We can spend the rest of the night here,
just snuggling side-by-side. We didn't find just one thing you
like, but quite a few, so I'm happy. I think you're happy too,
right?" Natalia nodded. "Good, so we can call it a
night if you like or…or we try to move beyond that initial
fear of the unknown and…hopefully you'll have a little 'oh
wow' of your own tonight…It's totally up to you."
Natalia smiled. "What do you think the answer is?"
"I don't know," Olivia replied honestly. "I
know what I'D like," she replied with a sexy grin,
"But whatever you desire…that's what we'll do 'cause
either way, I'm already over the moon tonight."
Natalia bit her lip as if really considering the choice. If
Olivia could have seen into her mind she would know what
Natalia was really taking into account was how she managed to
find an excellent lover, but also one that truly cared about
her well being, and not just exploiting the desire she
instilled. She knew that Gus really cared, as did Frank, but
in the end...it was about them coming. This time... this time
was different. This time everything felt...right.
The choice was made in a matter of seconds, but Natalia still
"Can you…stay right here - next to me," she asked
shyly, "…while you touch me, I mean? I want you close
to me. I want to see you."
"Whatever you desire," she repeated.
Natalia gently took Olivia's wrist and led the woman's hand
back to the apex of her legs.
Olivia, for her part, came to lie beside Natalia. She propped
one leg over Natalia so her own center rested against her
lover's hipbone. She shuddered at the contact, but this wasn't
about her desire and want.
This is about Natalia. There'll be plenty of other nights
for my fun, she decided silently. Still, the contact was
delightful – she had to admit that much. Plus, she was
certain that once Natalia got back into the spirit of things
those hips would begin to move and that thought created a new
wetness that she was sure Natalia could feel.
Natalia reached over and began to caress Olivia's shoulder and
arm that was now connected to her center. Olivia gently and
lovingly touched her; teased her folds before focusing on the
bundle of nerves at the top.
It was beautiful to feel Olivia's fingertips shimmering across
her sex, but Natalia wanted more; much more. She suddenly got
greedy for that feeling again – those glorious butterflies
that her insecurity scared away moments before. So reaching
down she took a hold of Olivia's hand and pushed down
slightly, putting more pressure on her clit as her body rose
Soon the pair began a rhythmic dance and when Natalia's hips
began to move, just as Olivia suspected, she could feel
Natalia's flesh rubbing against her sex, moving back and
forth, taking her to a greater height of arousal.
"Oh, god," Olivia moaned, unable to contain her
"You're so wet," Natalia told her.
"You can feel that?" Olivia asked.
"How could I not," Natalia panted. "You're
Olivia grinned. "It's you. You know that, right?"
she asked and then bore her hand down just a little bit more
and picked up the pace. "It's all for you."
Natalia didn't reply. She arched her back as she took a fist
full of the comforter in her hand. Olivia took the opportunity
of Natalia's raised back to work herself closer. She slide her
arm under her lover so she practically cradled the woman –
her forearm diagonal against Natalia's back and her fingertips
clutching the back of Natalia's left shoulder.
Olivia's breath was hot against Natalia's ear and neck.
"You're the sexist thing that God put on this planet. And
you're mine. All mine. No one will ever have you like this
again. No one."
Natalia grew even wetter at the possessive tone to Olivia's
voice at the words 'mine' and 'no one.' She didn't mind at all
because it was the truth – she was Olivia's…completely…mind,
soul and now body. And there wasn't anyone in the world she
wanted more. If she were being totally truthful there had
never been anyone who had captured her so fully and completely
Natalia turned and locked eyes with Olivia to try to tell her
as much. She opened her mouth to speak, but words were failing
her at the moment. All she felt was sensation. She did manage
to nod intensely though to show how captivated by Olivia she
was and how much she enjoyed the thought. A few moments later
her breath was coming now in shorter and shorter gasps, with
both woman striving even harder against each other.
"Oh God," Natalia muttered as the butterflies began
to return again.
Olivia grinned, this time recognizing what was happening
within her lover. She was at a crossroads – should she let
sense of touch alone rule the situation or should she try to
include as many other senses as possible? She decided in a
split second that she'd let two senses rule over all the
others – Natalia's sense of touch and sense of sound.
"You feel it don't you, Baby?" Olivia began, not
expecting an answer yet remembering how much Natalia wanted to
hear her voice earlier. She didn't hesitating her hand
movements in the slightest as she spoke. "Don't worry,
okay? Just enjoy it. I've got you, Sweetheart. I've got you.
You're safe with me."
As the feeling began to double in intensity, Natalia's mouth
fell open and she ground her hips into Olivia even more until
her sex was practically smacking against Olivia's hand. The
velocity was so intense that both women could hear the wet
slapping of flesh against flesh. Of course, Natalia's
movements only intensified what Olivia was feeling against
Olivia chuckled just slightly. "God, Baby, you're gonna
make me come again just watching you," she told her in
delight. "Fuck yeah!" she exclaimed as she watched
Natalia pick up her pace even more. The comment forced a deep
groan from Natalia's throat. "You're so close now,"
Olivia told her. "A little more. A little more."
"Please don't stop," Natalia begged as if her life
depended on it.
Olivia leaned over, her lips assaulting Natalia's neck. The
suction was so fierce she was sure it would leave a purple
mark for the world to see, but she didn't care. In fact, she
wanted the world to see that Natalia was branded by the
passion she had for her. She wanted to walk into Company and
let every goddamn Cooper get a good look at her neck and know
that'd Natalia'd been fucked – and fucked good by someone
who knew how. Frank might not be able to make her come, but
I will goddamn it. And she won't run from me. Oh, no. I'll
have her begging me every night to take her.
The thought made Olivia growl out loud, "Nothing's gonna
stop me, Baby, except you."
Olivia watched Natalia's teeth clinch slightly.
"Ohmy, ohmy, ohmy," Natalia began to pant over and
"Oh yeah, that's it," Olivia told her as she moved
back again to look at Natalia. "That's it, Baby. Feel it.
Feel me fucking you, Sweetheart. I swear I'll love you forever
Natalia. Forever, Baby. Come on. That's it. Come for me
Sweetheart. I wanna hear you come."
Natalia's eyes widened and her mouth opened even more. But
then she began to hold her breath.
"Breathe, Honey," Olivia said gently. "Breathe
and soak it in. Feel it all over!"
Natalia inhaled deeply and as she began to blow it out her
release hit her unlike anything she'd ever felt.
"Aaaaaaaaaaarghhhhhhh," Natalia cried out as she
bucked even more wildly against Olivia's hand.
Olivia was certain that the only time she might have smiled
larger was when she saw Emma for the first time. Watching
Natalia climax was... the closest she'd ever gotten to heaven
and true joy. She knew, no matter what, she'd never forget it.
Even as the orgasmic contractions were still happening deep
within her, Natalia took Olivia's smiling face in both her
hands giving her a firm, passionate kiss. She still moaned and
groaned her approval from behind their lips.
And true to her word Olivia didn't stop moving her hand until
Natalia reached down and brought the hand to her lips, kissing
the fingers with complete reverence and joy. Natalia closed
her eyes as if trying to savor the taste of every bit of the
heat they created together. She offered Olivia her hand,
letting her have a taste too and they both began to suck on
Olivia's fingers together, making both of them moan
Natalia smiled softly, and confessed, "That was the
hottest thing I've ever experienced in my life." She
began to shake her head in disbelief.
"What is it?" Olivia asked.
"You," she said incredulously. "You were
willing to give up THAT to be with me? Really?" Olivia
grinned and then nodded, not adding more. "You…you
truly love me because…wow…"
"See?" Olivia pointed. "I told you, didn't I?
"I get it. I really get it. This is why sex is such a big
fucking deal!" Natalia said excited.
Olivia laughed at the profane outburst and pulled Natalia
closer to her.
"Glad I could shine the light on that fact."
Natalia rose up and kissed Olivia again with renewed passion.
"I wanna make you feel that way again," she told her
and rolled Olivia on her back before she could protest.
"I wanna make you climax again."
Natalia's hands were on Olivia everywhere at once now and the
hotelier felt the onslaught of uncontrolled kisses. She was
elated at the attention, but also terribly amused while being
aroused. It was an odd, yet fun, sensation.
"Have I created a monster?" Olivia asked once
Natalia's lips began to focus on her neck.
Natalia pulled back and pinned Olivia to the bed momentarily.
"We are going to do this first thing in the morning and
the last thing at night. Heck, I might work in a few lunches
at the Beacon too."
Olivia wiggled free and put her hands on Natalia's shoulders.
She pushed her back slightly, but she gave her a light squeeze
of reassurance too.
"I'm never gonna sleep again, am I?"
"Not on your life," Natalia answered and pulled the
chuckling Olivia into another kiss.
Doris saw the sign out front of Company that said ‘closed’
and she looked at her watch. It was 6:45 in the morning, but
she tried the doorknob anyway. To her surprise, it turned so
she walked inside.
The only light on was in the rear of the kitchen and she
called out, "Anyone here?"
A few moments later, Blake rounded the corner and her eyes
immediately rolled upon seeing Doris.
"We’re not open yet," she told the mayor.
"Yes. That’s what the sign says. I have to go in
earlier than usual today and the coffee there tastes like
motor oil even first thing in the morning." Blake just
looked at Doris. "And if it’s not too much trouble can
you not spit in it? That’d be great, thanks."
Without getting the approval she would be served, Doris took a
seat at the bar and began to get her sugar and cream in order.
"Tell me why you’re really here," Blake said as
reached for a to-go cup.
"You make the best coffee in Springfield, and no, I’m
not pandering to the voters."
"Doris," Blake sighed and shook her head. "I
would never vote for you – ever. You are against everything
I stand for. We have absolutely nothing in common."
Doris looked Blake in the eyes and smiled. "We’re both
The empty cup Blake was holding fell from her grasp and she
bent over to pick it up. When she did, she accidentally hit
her head on the bar.
Doris giggled. "Are you okay?"
"Glad my pain is amusing you," Blake said holding
her head as she picked up the cup.
"You didn’t hit it that hard. Move your hand,"
Doris said as she walked around the counter. She stood up
slightly taller and inspected the area of Blake’s injury.
"It’s not even red. You’re fine."
Blake grinned slightly. "Now if I had universal heath
insurance I could find out for sure, huh? But since I don’t,
I’ll just have to hope it’s nothing more serious."
Doris sighed heavily. "Yes, that’s just what this
country needs – to become socialists and spend trillions on
a Marxist medical program."
"It’d be a lot better than the trillions we’re
handing war profiteers who are helping us ‘spread democracy’
around the globe in pointless wars."
Doris took a defensive stance with her hands on her hips as
"You know, socialized medicine-?"
"Single payer insurance," Blake interrupted.
"Socialized medicine," Doris insisted.
Blake took a step closer. "Single payer insurance."
"Socialized medicine," Doris gritted through her
"Single. Payer. Insurance." Blake stressed each
Doris closed her eyes for a moment. "Whatever you call
it, it shouldn’t be the responsibility of the
"Oh so people should just fend for themselves when it
comes to health matters, is that it?"
"There are many options available today, yes," Doris
"So it’s socialist to make sure that all people are
treated when they’re ill?"
"Yes, it is!" Doris insisted.
"But it’s not socialism," Blake went on, "to
build and fund schools for the public? And it’s not
socialism to offer a place where those now-literate people to
check out a book or a DVD to further their education? And it’s
not socialism to write a letter to my dear Aunt Mary in
Michawaka and have someone else deliver it?"
"I see what you’re trying to get at, but-."
Blake didn’t stop her argument. She simply talked over Doris
saying, "However, IT IS socialism to ensure that me, the
teacher, the librarian and my dear Aunt Mary are healthy by
offering medical coverage? Are you fucking kidding me? Who the
hell do you right-wing, narrow-minded, heart-less,
One of Doris’s hands cupped Blake’s face while the other
grabbed her hip on the opposite side. Doris pulled Blake into
her and both women shook slightly at the impact. Doris pulled
Blake so near to her that their foreheads rested against each
other as she spoke.
"I love watching you rant," Doris complimented in a
Blake nervously licked her lips. "Let me go," she
said softly. Her actions betrayed her words though as her
fingers began to clutch to Doris’s silk blouse, pulling her
Doris took a deep breath, inhaling Blake’s perfume and
scent. "I would," she eventually replied, "…but
I don’t think you want me to… Do you?"
When Blake didn’t answer after five seconds, Doris raised
her head so they could come eye-to-eye with each other.
Simultaneously, their lips came crashing together and they
began to find each other’s mouths passionately and
Doris sat at the booth at Company as Olivia walked over to
her. The lunchtime crowd was light compared to most days. The
hotelier smiled broadly, but didn't say a word as she sat next
to the mayor. The smile became infectious and Doris began to
grin as well.
"From the look of things I'd say it was a good
night?" Doris asked.
"I have never…ever…" Olivia was at a loss for
"Ahhh, yes. That first time," Doris said. "It's
been awhile, but I remember it well."
"She is just…And we're just…It was just…"
"Speechless?" Doris asked. Olivia opened her mouth,
but, try as she might, she couldn't force any words from her
lips. "So I take it you two really do… work?"
Olivia nodded. "Oh my goodness, yes. And you know what
they say about Catholic girls? It's all true." Doris and
Olivia both giggled like sophomoric teenagers. "But I am
sorry that things didn't work out with you and…"
Olivia motioned toward the bar where Blake was getting drinks
together for a table. Doris grinned and seemed to be watching
every move Blake made in silent appreciation. The gesture
didn't go unnoticed by Olivia.
"No way! When?" the hotelier asked. "She left
the restaurant last night mad as hell."
"And she was just as pissed this morning after we got
into the health care debate here at Company."
"You slept with Blake here?" Olivia asked as she
"First, there was no sleeping. We had sex. And two, not
here. It was in the kitchen."
"I didn't mean at this table," Olivia replied
annoyed. "So you and Blake, huh? You guys are a
"Oh hell, no!" Doris laughed quietly.
"Oh, please. We're not dating; we just had sex. I'm not
picking out china patterns with her, unlike you and Natalia.
Or should I say picking out baby names?" Doris paused in
thought and held up a finger so Olivia wouldn't interrupt.
"You know you did everything backwards, right? You lived
together. Then decided to fall in love. Then decided to have
sex, but then you didn't because Natalia wigged out. Then you
found out you're having a baby. Then you finally did have sex
and now you're…What exactly are you two? Are you ever going
to live with her again? Or would raising your children
together in the same house just be too normal for you?"
"You're such a smart ass," Olivia chuckled.
Doris laughed slightly too. "That's true, I am… but
answer the question."
"I don't know and might I add, for someone who got laid
today you're awful grumpy," Olivia replied.
"Grump aside, tell me. Did you guys decide
"She hasn't asked and I'm not going to push. I'm just
basking in the glow of the most incredible sex I've ever had…and
I mean ever."
"I can't argue with that," Doris answered and raised
her mug, taking a drink.
Blake came over to the table with a carafe of water.
"Need a refill?" she asked. Doris nodded and said
As Blake filled her glass she looked over and noticed Olivia's
"You seem mighty chipper this morning," she
"So do you," Olivia replied.
"Well if I didn't know any better I'd say someone got
lucky," Blake teased playfully.
"And I could say the same," Olivia retorted.
Blake blushed and seemed relived when Buzz called out an order
at the pick up window. She scurried away, but waved to Natalia
who had just entered. Olivia admired Natalia from afar as Buzz
walk toward her lover.
"You are soooo smitten," Doris chuckled as she
watched Olivia admiring Natalia. "It's cute
"Huh?" Olivia asked turning toward Doris. "Did
you say something?"
Doris just smiled. "Nothing," she said and watched
as Olivia turned her head to gaze at her lover again.
Up at the bar Buzz came over and gave Natalia a hug.
"How's the momma doin' this afternoon? Can I get ya
something? Pickles and ice cream? Sardines and
chocolate?" Natalia made a disgusted face. "That was
one of Nadine's favorites when she was carrying Frank, which
probably explains why Frank's the way he is."
Natalia swatted playfully at Buzz's arm to admonish him.
"Be nice," she warned him.
Buzz smiled but then leaned over, looking at Natalia's neck
and the bruised purple skin.
"Have a run in with vampire last night?" he asked.
At first she didn't know what he meant, but then she
remembered the hickey she found on her neck when she looked in
the mirror of Olivia's suite. She quickly brought her hair
back over her shoulder to conceal it as she blushed.
"I'd ask how you got that, or rather who gave that to
you, but I know. We all know."
"I figured Frank had told you by now."
"No, actually he didn't. I figured it out on my own.
Hell, to be honest I had my doubts at the engagement
"You couldn't take our eyes off of Olivia and she was
knocking back that Champaign like a thirsty nomad who just
found an oasis."
"You never said anything?" Natalia asked.
Buzz shrugged his shoulders. "What's to say? I did find
you were a little 'off' about the whole wedding and even
suggested to Frank that maybe he should take a little more
"But what?" Natalia asked.
"Look," Buzz said putting his hands up. "I said
too much, okay?"
"No, not okay. You knew that Olivia and I were in love,
didn't you? You knew before we even knew it."
"I've seen Olivia in love," Buzz told her. "I
know the look. And I know she adored you. I just didn't know
if it was mutual." He grinned and pointed at her neck.
"And obviously it is," he added.
Again, Natalia blushed feeling self-conscious. Buzz looked
over and saw Olivia sitting with Doris. He motioned with his
"And there's Dracula herself," he announced in a
loud voice. Natalia looked over and immediately smiled.
"Go grab a seat, Honey. I'll bring you a grilled cheese,
"Thanks," she said before she made her way over to
Olivia motioned to her lap and Natalia hesitated.
"I don't want to hurt you," she replied. "I'm a
lot bigger than I used to be."
"I wouldn't know. I've never had you sit on me before.
Come on," Olivia insisted. "Sitting next to me is
too far away."
"Oh god, I'm gonna be sick from all the saccharine at
this table," Doris sighed.
"Just because you failed to make a love connection last
night is not our fault," Natalia countered.
"She actually made a connection this morning,"
Olivia offered as Doris wiggled her eyebrows.
"With who?" Natalia asked.
"Blake," Olivia whispered the name in her ear.
Natalia said nothing at first and then said, "Give me a
break. You're making that up."
Doris shook her head and said, "Nope." Natalia
looked to Olivia for confirmation and she nodded too as Doris
continued by saying, "I came for coffee…Then she and I
Olivia giggled but Natalia didn't look amused. Olivia cleared
her throat and pointed a finger at Doris. "Bad Doris. How
"Sure. Whatever." Doris replied. "Seriously,
though, we talked politics and after it was done and over I
told her to meet me tomorrow at the boarding house. Then I
tossed her five bucks…"
"You gave her five bucks for having sex with you?"
Natalia asked, keeping her voice low. "You're a
bitch." Olivia seemed taken back by the vulgarity, but
didn't say anything because partly she agreed.
"For the coffee, not the lay!" Doris replied in a
heated whisper. "She wanted to give me the coffee, but I
made a point to tell her that I'm not a democrat. I don't
accept something for nothing. I'll pay my own way thank you
"You're such a smart ass," Natalia chuckled.
"Funny," Doris commented, "your…well,
whatever Olivia is…she just said the same thing about
"Olivia is many things. She's my daughter's
mother..." Natalia kissed Olivia's nose. "She's my
lover…" Natalia kissed Olivia's neck just below her
earlobe. "She's my everything..." Natalia finished
by kissing Olivia on the lips.
"I love you so much," Olivia said when she finally
Natalia smiled and stroked Olivia's face. "I love you
Doris sighed heavily. "And I'm going into diabetic
Olivia and Natalia both chuckled.
