Xena, Gabby, Sal and the others mentioned do not belong to me. They belong to MCA. I’m just writing a simple story about love. Love between two adult woman. Deep, passionate, affectionate
love... (Sorry I got carried away). If you’re too young (or too old) please don’t read it. If they don’t like these stories where you live, move. And if it offends you, open your mind a little more and come back when you’ve matured. ‘Nuff said. Now on to the story.
Note: I fell in love with Salmoneus when I saw him in
'Here She Comes... ' and figured I'd do a story that includes

his leads he calls Xena and Gabrielle for help.

Act One: The
urgent word for us to see a play!"
Xena’s temper was
getting the better of her as she paced in front of Salmoneus.
"No. Not SEE a
play. Be IN a play. There’s a bit of difference," he
Gabrielle sat on
the stage, legs crossed at the ankles, watching Xena move
swiftly back and forth. The bard stayed out of this one.
Xena had a choice
of coming to the island to meet Salmoneus or a chariot race in
Athens. The dinars the bard brought in for her stories
weren’t enough for the supplies they would soon be needing,
like a new saddle for Argo. The chariot race, however, offered
500 dinars to the winner, which could keep them set for
months. Xena shook her head again as she thought of her
have anything to add?" Xena asked, stopping in front of
Gabrielle, now directing her anger toward her friend. She
simply shook her head, trying to avoid this debate.
Salmoneus offered, "if it’s any consolation you still
may be able to make Athens before the race. That is if you
leave now. I wouldn’t be troubled... Of course I might
also be dead... But think nothing of it," he said
as he began to shuffle away.

Salmoneus began as he turned around. "There’s the king
see? And he paid me a lot of dinars, a whole lot of dinars, to
organize this production for his wedding anniversary. It was
going to be a lovely affair, wine, food, song-."
Xena rolled her
eyes along with her shoulders and he could see her irritation
he continued quickly, "This king is known to have a very
bad temper. I heard that once he got his supper cold, and the
next day, he had his chef for dinner. This man is not someone
to be tangled with. Hence, if I fail to get this production of
the ground, I could be Fillet of Salmoneus!"
Xena slumped her
shoulders in defeat. She wasn’t about to let that happen and
she knew Salmoneus wasn’t joking. She’d heard about this
ruler long before his cannibalism speech.
"What do you
need?" she asked, running her fingers through her hair in
He smiled broadly.
"You mean you’ll stay?!" he asked.
Xena replied to the point. "But on three conditions. One
- you split half your earnings with us. Two - you never have
anymore dealings with this man, no matter how much he offers.
And three - you never, ever tell a single soul about
Hercules," Salmoneus pushed.
Hercules," Xena insisted. "Do you agree?"
huh?" he said mulling it over in his mind.
Xena shot Gabrielle
an incredulous look and said, "I don’t believe this

up on popular cultural arts? I’m impressed Xena,"
Salmoneus complimented. "It’s a big hit in Athens right
now. Is that where you saw it?"
The bard, who had
been untypically silent, finally began to make her presence
known with a laugh.

really in deep this time," she giggled. "Besides,
how are you going to convince the audience she’s a man? Look
at her," Gabrielle said pointing to Xena’s breasts.
"I’d like to see you try to hide these." Her laugh
grew harder and Salmoneus found himself beginning to laugh.
Xena was another story.
Very funny," the warrior replied. "But tell me
Gabrielle, how comfortable are you with that scene in the end
of act two? You know the one where Celestes is laying on the
bed, stark naked, waiting for Darvin’s arrival?" The
bards’ eyes grew wide with the knowledge. "That’s
what I thought," Xena added victoriously.
right," Gabrielle said jumping from the stage. "We
can’t convince anyone. So we’ll be going now."
Gabrielle tried to
leave, but Xena grabbed her by the back of her tunic.
"Where you think you’re goin’? We made a promise.
Gabrielle hung her
head and stopped fighting Xena’s restraint.
Salmoneus offered, "We’ll have to change some of the
scenes. For example, no shirtless scenes for Darvin... I’m
sure we can tone this down just a bit... So for now, quite
worrying. And start memorizing those lines. You’ve only got
three days to open/closing night."

they were behind the curtain, Salmoneus raised his head and
his hands in prayer. "Please Zeus help us!"

performers were concerned that the argument would escalate
uncontrollably, but Salmoneus saw it as the perfect
opportunity. Both ‘actress’ stood inches apart, their
breath raged, their eyes flaring as they still squabbled.

Xena shot a quick
look to Salmoneus then to Gabrielle. She grabbed Gabrielle
forcefully, letting one arm encompass her waist, pulling her
until there wasn’t an inch between them. Xena’s lips found
Gabrielle’s swiftly and Gabrielle hands reached up pulling
Xena’s head closer. Xena pulled back slightly, tilting her
head in the opposite direction before reclaiming the bards’
lips yet again. When Gabrielle’s leg reflexively wrapped
around the warriors' strong thigh, Xena’s tongue puncture
through Gabrielle’s closed lips. But soon enough the
bard’s lips opened and accepted the foreign presence,
matching it stroke for stroke.
Salmoneus shouted. He waited a few seconds, but the scene
wasn’t ending. In fact, it became more heated. Xena reaching
down to support Gabrielle’s leg as she softly stroked it,
causing the bard to moan loudly. "You can stop now,"
Salmoneus cued. "... Oh, ladies?...Cut!..." When
that still didn't work he cried out, " Xena!"
whipped to meet Salmoneus’ voice.
"Is that what
you’re looking for?" she asked, trying desperately to
hide her labored breathing. Gabrielle was still in her arms.
The bard’s eyes finally opened and her leg went back to the
floor as Xena finished her sentence.
"Yes! That was
wonderful!" Salmoneus shouted. "All we have to do is
start a fight before the scene and we’ll be all set."
The other performers clapped their approval as Salmoneus
spoke. The sound brought Gabrielle back closer to reality --
the reality that she had kissed Xena. Kissed her passionately.
Kissed her as her tongue played tango with Xena’s. Suddenly,
she felt discomfort in the warriors’ arms and slipped away.
Xena opened her
mouth to speak to Gabrielle’s turned back, but decided
against it. Salmoneus watched the display as Xena shrugged.

Gabrielle turned when she heard Xena’s voice, but quickly
brought her head around to the closet.

shoulder. "Hey," she said softly, feeling Gabrielle

whispered. The bard’s grin began to melt away as she spoke
the words. Xena was unsure why such a compliment spoken caused
such sorrow in the young woman’s eyes.
"Are you sure
that’s all that’s bothering you?" Xena prodded.
reply instantly. She was weighing how much to reveal
carefully. She spent many nights wondering how it would feel
to kiss Xena the way she did minutes earlier. Now she knew.
Instead of having the fascination pass, she felt more
intrigued than ever before. The love scene in act two was
going to be a real bitch.
She decided to hold
her tongue for now. She didn’t want them to be the king’s
breakfast because the performance was so lousy. She didn’t
think either one of them would be able to remember one damn
line if she let her truth be known.

statement and a moment later the curtain opened. Xena winked
at Gabrielle from off stage and the bard gave a small grin as
she delivered the first line.

rather nicely. The king smiled at the jokes, remained watchful
at the drama and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.
Xena herself had to admit that she was having a good time.

like Celestes, she waited for the arrival as the act began to
come to a close.
Xena took command
of the stage as soon as she walked on it. And like the
audience, Gabrielle was helpless in being drawn to her
presence. Gabrielle could barely remember saying the dialog as
she chased after the exiting Darvin/Xena.
"Wait my love!
Promise you’ll return for me. Let me hear your promise one
last time and give me hope of your safe return. My heart beats
for you and you alone."
"As does mine,
my dear. Your words inspire. Your love astounds me. I promise

was now the one moaning as Gabrielle’s other hand worked its
way to Xena’s backside, kneading the flesh with her

felt herself being tugged around again. Gabrielle’s
lips recaptured Xena’s and their tongues began to struggle
for control in each other’s mouths. Xena felt a river
beginning between her legs. She knew if she didn’t get out
of there quick, she’d end up destroying the plot line and
end up taking Gabrielle on the mock bed, right there with a
room full of people.
Xena broke away,
taking Gabrielle’s hands. "I promise I’ll return my
love. I promise."
back, she finally completed her journey across the stage. Once
in the shadows, away from the audience, did Xena turn around.
The look in Gabrielle’s eyes was pure desire.
I love you,
Xena mouthed silently across the stage to her beautiful
strawberry blonde. Gabrielle smiled before she began her
soliloquy. Xena contently strolled to the changing corner. Out
in the theater, Salmoneus eyes widened as he watched

dialog. It didn’t help, however, when Gabrielle rose from
the bed, and walked seductively toward the warrior. Xena
couldn’t take her eyes off Gabrielle’s beauty. Her tongue
felt tied. And she tried to take a deep breath to steady her
nerves. No such luck - the tight bandage prevented it.
Not like any
more air would help anyway, Xena resolved.
Once the lines were
spoken, Xena picked Gabrielle up, into her arms carrying her
to the bed. She rested her gentle down and soon followed. She
lightly caressed Gabrielle’s neck with kisses, making her
way to her ear. She whispered, close to Gabrielle’s ear so
only she could hear.

playfully. They began to walk to the changing corner until
they noticed Salmoneus hadn’t moved. He turned to face them.
"Have I lost
all control of this production?" he asked pointedly.
Xena walked over,
taking him gently by the arm, leading him off stage.
Xena replied dryly. "Yes, you have."

approached Salmoneus and Gabrielle. "Where’s that
strapping, handsome man that played Darvin?"
"He wants to
send his apologies for not attending the feast, your
majesty," Gabrielle offered. "He’s very ill. It
took all he had to get through tonight’s performance... He
said perhaps the next time he visits your kingdom you would be
gracious enough to give him an audience with you."

he added as he gestured to his wife.

Gabrielle both released a sigh as the king moved on, caught up
socializing with the others. But their comfort didn’t last
long when they were approached by a Duke and Duchess.
"It was a
wonderful performance," the duchess commended.
the duke added. "We saw the play in Athens, but
tonight’s performance was exceptional. We both agree it was
the most passionate production to date. Where is that young
‘suitor’ of yours anyway? We wanted to offer our good

getting old as countless numbers inquired about her

hour and a half of well wishers, Gabrielle now she felt like
she was the one truly nauseated. She had told the tale so much
that she herself began to believe her ‘better half’ really

Perfect body. All just waiting for my arrival. The thought
made her grin broader. Now she’s the one waiting for me.
Maybe I will have one more glass of wine.
Feeling no pain,
but still having enough sense to continue the charade, she
decided to make her way upstairs. Everyone seemed to love the
play; everyone seemed fooled. Slowly, she tried to open the
door to the bed chamber, but it was locked.

strained. Gods how I want this woman Gabrielle thought
as she soaked up all of Xena’s features. Her crystal blue
eyes, her firm, round breast, her black, coarse triangle of
hair, all the way down to her overgrown toenails. Nothing
evaded Gabrielle’s eyes. And Xena hid nothing.
Desire, mixed with
her nervousness crept out and Gabrielle began to giggle.
Slowly, at first, then with more heart. Xena smiled warmly.
"Do I look
amusing Gabrielle?" Xena offered, stroking the woman’s
cheek. Soon the bard’s desire took precedence with the way
the warrior dragged out her name.
"No. I was
thinking I didn't expect the day to end this way,"
Gabrielle replied growing serious. "You... you look

Gabrielle replied with a shuttered.
Xena replied, casually dragging out the conversation, tracing
the young woman’s neck line with her finger after they sat
on the edge of the bed.
Gabrielle knew the
warrior was playing with her. The warrior never wanted to
‘talk’. At times it had been a sore spot for the bard
since she loved language so much. Her desire to touch Xena
now, without words was overwhelming, perhaps even a bit
unsettling, given her nature. But at second thought, Gabrielle

stay focused in the conversation. The fact that Xena’s
fingertips had moved from her neck to her thighs didn’t
help. "I’ve wanted you for so long... I brought you out

helplessly as Gabrielle stood and removed her dress off her
shoulders. Xena watched it fall into a puddle before her eyes
traveled up the bard’s lovely naked body. Xena sat still as
Gabrielle lowered herself onto her lap to face her.
Xena?" Gabrielle whispered, kissing Xena’s neck.
"When did you know you enjoyed watching me bathe?"
The kisses worked their way around to the opposite side.
"When did you realized you enjoyed watched my mid-drift
when we practiced my staff?" Her hands, lightly skimmed
across Xena’s erect nipples. "When did you realized you
wanted to hear my cry of ecstasy?"
Xena moaned as
Gabrielle continued, the physical and verbal assault.
Xena?" Gabrielle provoked. "When did you realized
you wanted to taste my mouth," the bard asked, tracing
the warrior’s lips. "...my skin," she continued,
stroking the length of Xena’s body. "...my
wetness," she asked as she plunged two finger deep inside
of herself getting them slick. "... When Xena?" she
asked yet again as she brought those fingers to the blue eyed
beauty’s mouth. " ...When?"
Xena closed her
eyes and sucked greedily on the bard’s fingers. The feel of
Xena’s wet tongue rolling around her digits and the
satisfied moans of her lover caused Gabrielle to whimper.
Xena had enough.
She pulled the woman down, capturing her lips, plunging her
tongue deep inside. Gabrielle enjoyed the taste of herself in
Xena’s mouth, making her grow wetter than before. Xena too
could feel the wetness, trickling to her thigh. The sensation
unleashed the warriors’ deep passion and she found herself
suddenly over Gabrielle, with the bard’s back on the bed.
Gabrielle herself was unsure of just how she got into this
position, but she loved the feel of Xena’s weight above her.
Xena paused a
moment to gaze into the beautiful eyes that captured her
heart. Gabrielles’ desire played across her face as well as
her own desire reflected back at her.

Her lips dove into
Gabrielle’s neck with a hungry groan. Her teeth plucked at
the flesh lightly, bringing goosebumps on the bard’s body.
The feel of Gabrielle’s petite hands caressing her back set
Xena ablaze. Xena’s mouth worked down swiftly, catching
Gabrielle’s nipple in her mouth, kneading it with her tongue
rose, at the contact and Xena could feel how excited the bard
truly was getting. She had to feel the dampness of
Gabrielle’s desire with her fingertips. So continuing to
administer affection with her lips, Xena’s hand slowly crept
gripped her hand. For a brief moment Xena thought she had gone
too far to fast. That was until Gabrielle forced Xena’s
fingers inside of her, bucking her hips to begin a sensuous
rhythm. Xena couldn’t believe all the nectar she found

lust, striving for all the pleasure Xena’s skillful hands
could bring. Xena watched her lover. The look in Gabrielle’s
eyes, the desperate want that showed on her young face,
captured Xena and refused to let go.
"You feel so
warm, so wet," the warrior complimented.
Gabrielle whispered. "For you," she struggled with
her words. "For you."
Gabrielle had to
know. She wanted to feel Xena, to taste her. She ripped
Xena’s hand away and threw the warrior on her back. Xena’s
passion dropped slightly from the surprise. It quickly
returned when she felt Gabrielle’s moist lips, laying claim
to her center.
No lingering kisses
on her thighs, no light fondling on her labia. Gabrielle was
quick and to the point. I like that, Xena thought as
she lay helpless in Gabrielle’s lips. The bard was greedily
sucking and licking at Xena’s juices. Watching Gabrielle
between her thighs, moaning in pleasure, devouring her body,
did as much for Xena as the actual contact. Soon Gabrielle’s
efforts focused solely on the warrior’s large clit. I
really like that. Xena smirked, releasing a lingering

you?" Gabrielle teased. It was uncanny the way the petite

and out. "And that? Do you like that, Xena?"
Xena’s head began
to thrash back and forth her dark mane spreading over the
pillow. "Oh Gods. Yes," Xena answered obediently,
working her hips to meet the bards’ hand.
Gabrielle added a

began to answer. "Yes, Gabrielle," she whispered,
moving even faster, lifting her back from the bed. "Yes!
Don’t stop. Don’t stop," she pleaded.
The mighty warrior princess begging her, the little
bard from Poteidaia. It was quite a sight. Gabrielle wanted
and needed Xena’s release as much as the warrior did, if not
more. Witnessing Xena’s desire climb higher and higher,
ignited the bards own passion and her lips and tongue went
back to reclaim the warrior’s nub.

she order seductively. "Come."
Xena thought. That beautiful voice. Yes love. I’ll come
for you. I’ll come for you. Xena wanted to tell her so
much but she couldn’t vocalize it. Instead she found herself
exclaiming only the bards' name as she reached her climax.
Xena’s body shook
with her overwhelming satisfaction. Gabrielle pulled away from
her duties to admire Xena’s convulsing body. In a moment,
however the bards’ head shot back down and she gathered the
nectar that trickled out of her beautiful love, lapping it up

pulled Gabrielle onto her knees and quickly ducked her head
between them. The bard seemed even wetter than before. And her
taste was incredible.

"So delicious... ummmm."
The sound of
approval vibrated against the bard, making her gasp. "Oh
by the Gods, Xena... What are you doing to me?" the bard
"What am I
doing?!" Xena teased. "I’m going to make you
come," she added alluringly. Gabrielle knew that wicked
smile was on Xena’s face even though she couldn’t see it.

This opening up and talking more might not be that bad,
Xena amused. Gods, listen to the sounds she’s making.
Xena was taken aback. She never realized Gabrielle could be so...
animalistic. So lustful. It didn’t fit her picture of her
adorable bard. But that’s not to say she didn’t like it.
Maybe Gabrielle had a dark side too. Raw and assertive. The
thought made the warrior work harder; faster.
Xena," Gabrielle coached. "Just like that. Do it
like that. I’m goin’ do it Xena. I’m goin’ come all
over your face... That’s what you want huh?" she asked
rhetorically, as she pitched her own nipples; playing with her
Xena could only
moan. This was her Gabrielle. The one she always knew was
there. She could always feel Gabrielle’s passion lingering
under the surface - when she told stories, when she faced down
foes. It had always been there but now it was finally being
released. To say that Xena totally enjoyed it was a gross

couldn’t support herself any long and started to tumble on
the bed but Xena caught her and rested her down gently. The
warrior lightly caressed the trembling woman allowing all her
love to seep from her fingertips. Once the bard’s breathing
was close to normal only then did the warrior kiss her
tenderly on the lips.

YOU," Xena replied. "I’ve never been able to get
pleasure from giving pleasure."
Never," Xena grinned.

here. After the performance the king upped my commission as a
way of saying thanks."
Xena could hear
Gabrielle gasp in the background when he revealed the amount.
Xena seemed unsure. But Salmoneus handed her the bag.
"Here Xena. I
don’t have many friends... Consider it a gift... And perhaps
a down payment on a future favor." He winked.
She did need the
money - a new saddle for Argo, perhaps a few extra nights at
some village inns, new undergarments for Gabrielle, maybe some
thing in leather. Xena grinned at the thought.

"Okay! I get
the point," he whispered. "You’re a lucky lady,
you know that, Xena?"
Xena looked back at
Gabrielle, who was blushing. And it lightened her mood.
"Yes I know," she replied, turning to face him
she’s pretty lucky too." He winked again and made his
way across the hall to his bed chamber. "Goodnight."
she replied locking the door again.
huh?" Gabrielle said as Xena took off her robe and
climbed into bed. "Don’t you have to be married to have
a honeymoon, Xena?"

continue. Xena realized that was her cue. "Oh, I though

Xena replied, bringing the bard to her chest, nestling into
the bed. "Then it’s settled."

Xena reflected on
the words and their conversation earlier that got cut short by
their passion. "When I died," Xena whispered.

"And Gabrielle, when you wake up you’ll be here in my
arms tomorrow... and every morning after. We’ll never sleep
on opposite sides of a camp again."
Gabrielle placed a
