Alex and Conner used the dinghy to get to the island. They tied the little boat to the pier and made their way to the hut that was the office used by the rangers. Conner bought a map of the island as a souvenir for Alex. After looking it over, they decided to hike to the ocean side of the island about 2 miles away.
During their hike, Alex listened as Conner once again became a tour guide and spouted off fact after fact about the island.
"The island, three miles wide and eighteen miles long, is a bit larger than Manhattan. It is a lot less crowded too: Cumberland Island limits visitation to 300 people per day. You must make a six-month advance reservation to gain access to the island. It serves as sanctuary to the threatened loggerhead sea turtle, which can weigh up to 350 pounds and lay eggs from May to September. Other wildlife on the island includes wild horses, and hogs. These species are said to be feral: meaning that their ancestors were domesticated animals that have now returned to their wild state."
Conner looked at Alex, smiling sheepishly. "I know, I get a little excited telling people about this area, so let me know when you want me to shut up and I will."
"I don't want you to shut up. I like hearing you talk of the things you love, and obviously you love this island." Alex threw her arm around Conner's shoulder and gave her a hug as they walked. She reluctantly dropped her arm as she remembered they were in a public place. Clearing her throat, Alex said, "Now, continue with your tour, Ranger Harris."
"Very funny. Remember, you need my help to get back to Amelia, don't make me mad...I just might leave you stranded on this not quite deserted island." Conner laughed, poking Alex in the shoulder.
"OK, as I was saying: Much like its feral animals, Cumberland Island is also in the process of returning to its wild state. The island, established as a national seashore in 1972, is reclaiming the land. This is most evident at the Dungeness ruins. Andrew Carnegie's brother Thomas built the estate in the early 1900s. It was abandoned in the 1920s and burned down in 1959. The haunting stone ruins are now being usurped by the forest's overgrowth."
"What was it before it was a national seashore, just a deserted island?
"No, originally it was home to the once-thriving Timuncuan Indians, around 2500 B.C. It has also been the home of an English plantation, an international port, Civil War fort, turn-of-the-century playground for rich tourists, terminus of Florida's first cross-state railroad, and world headquarters of the shrimping industry, which was first modernized here, " Conner explained.
"An aura of simple innocence belies what was once a hotbed of corruption, buccaneers, and bootleggers. Named for the daughter of England's King George II, Amelia Island was under the Spanish flag in 1807, when the Jefferson Embargo closed all U.S. ports to foreign shipping. The Spanish harbor of Fernandina became the nation's center for smuggling slaves, liquor, and foreign luxury goods, as well as buried pirate treasures."
Alex was fascinated by Conner's knowledge of the island and its heritage.
"Amelia Island played another historic role during the Cuban War for Independence (1895-1899), when freedom fighter Jose Marti was overheard plotting his strategies in his island suite in the Florida House Inn, Florida's oldest surviving hotel. This led to the demise of the ill-fated revolution."
"OK, tell me you're really on the payroll, here right?" Alex teased
Laughing, Conner attempted to punch Alex in the shoulder again, but this time the other woman was ready for her and moved too quickly.
"Nooooo, I just really love the area. It fascinates and bewilders me at the same time."
They had been walking for about 30 minutes, when through the tunnel of trees, Alex saw the first waves of the ocean crashing to the shore. As they cleared the trees, Alex was astounded with the beauty of the shoreline. As far as she could see, there was nothing hindering the natural flow of the environment. The dunes were unencumbered by fences or beach bars, as they are on so many other shores. The sea grass swayed in the wind, as the sea gulls lazed easily on the beach.
Alex and Conner walked about a half-mile further down the beach to a completely deserted area. Alex spread out the large beach blanket, as Conner removed the backpack, and began setting out their feast. Alex had kidded Conner earlier about the amount of food she had prepared, but was now glad, because the hike had worked up an appetite for both women.
Conner pulled out a thermos and poured a dark red liquid into plastic glasses for each of them. "Sorry about the plastic, but glass isn't allowed on the beach area."
Alex gave Conner a teasing glare. "Well it's nice to know you follow some of the rules."
Knowing she was busted Conner took on an innocent look. "What do you mean some?"
"Well, if my memory serves me correctly, and I know it does, I believe alcohol is not only prohibited from the beach, but from the entire island." Alex tried to give Conner a stern look, but it was totally broken up with her next comment.
"Hmm, well then, I guess we'd better drink up. I wouldn't want to have to arrest you."
The women enjoyed a relaxed lunch, talking about their pasts and families. They cleared away the remnants of their meal and put them, trash and all, back into the backpack. The beach was practically deserted, so they decided their belongings were safe to leave on the beach, and they took a long walk further down the shoreline, sometimes stopping to look at shells that had washed onto the wet sand.
Before either woman realized it, they had walked well past sight of their blanket, and decided to head back. As they were turning around, Alex placed her hand on Conner's arm stopping her so they were facing. Alex reached out and stroked Conner's face gently looking into the other woman's eyes.
"I can't remember the last time I had as good of a time as I have today, Conner, Thank You."
Looping her finger in the neckline of Conner's T-shirt, Alex pulled Conner to her and placed a gentle kiss on the other woman's lips. Conner whimpered at the contact of their lips, and Alex allowed herself to succumb to the heat she felt in her body, as she wrapped her arms around Conner's waist. She spent a long moment savoring Conner's bottom lip as she sucked it gently into her mouth, tasting it with her tongue. Conner ran her fingers through Alex's hair feeling the soft silkiness of the tresses, trying to pull her closer still.
Conner pulled back suddenly, grabbing a haggard breath and looking at Alex, as if trying to comprehend what was happening. She suddenly pulled Alex close and kissed her persistently, her tongue probing, opening her lips until their tongues were dancing in unison. A deep yearning groan escaped Alex's throat as she felt Conner's tongue join hers, savoring the warm sweet flavor of the other's mouth. Conner tasted like the warm, sweet wine they had drank for lunch, and Alex found herself probing deeper in search of more.
Lost in a passion she did not want to stop, Alex broke the kiss. Breathing heavily from the excitement she had just felt rush through her body, she placed her head against Conner's so they were touching noses. Eyes closed, lest she might be swept away in the tide of fervor again, Alex whispered breathlessly, "I think we had better take this somewhere a little more private, or we're likely to be arrested."
Conner stepped back quickly, completely breaking the contact with Alex. She looked disheveled, and a little disappointed as she tried to compose herself, and stop the rampaging heat boiling through her veins. She felt like she might have gone too far, too fast for Alex, but she had been so overcome with her need she couldn't contain her desire.
"Ummm, Yeah...sure, we probably need to get back to the boat anyway. It'll be getting dark soon, and I think I might have a couple of running lights out." Taking a deep breath, Conner ran her hand through her hair in a frustrated gesture, and turned to head back towards the blanket they had left on the beach earlier.
Alex could see the frustration and uncertainty in Conner's face. Taking Conner's arm, stopping her mid-stride, Alex turned Conner until they were facing each other. She could feel the trembling in Conner's arm, and felt her breath caress her cheeks.
"I didn't say I wanted to stop, Conner." Alex looked hesitantly into her eyes. "...just get somewhere a little more...ummm...private." Taking a ragged breath, Alex looked out over the water before bringing her eyes back to Conner's. "I...I want you...so much right now, I hurt. I want to make love to you Conner, here...right now." Alex looked around as if trying to determine if there was a possibility of just that happening. Letting go of a torn sigh, Alex added, "However, I think we would be a lot safer, and more comfortable, back at your house, OK?"
Conner smiled and pulled Alex close for a tender hug. Both women relaxed, as they understood that this break in their touch was going to be tolerable, but only because they knew that soon they would not have to stop. Conner pulled back and looked at Alex with a mischievous gleam in her eye.
"Race ya." Conner laughed as she sprinted towards their forgotten blanket.
"No fair, you got a head start," Alex yelled to the back of the running woman, as she shot into a sprint of her own. "Cheateeeeer!"
To Conner's surprise, Alex quickly caught up with and passed her. Alex ran with the grace of the long distance runner she was, and Conner held back, taking the time to appreciate the flowing figure, gliding like a gazelle, in front of her. Conner almost tripped several times as she let her mind wander, and gaze at the muscular body of the woman she had so recently held in her arms...a body she intended to hold again before the night was through.
By the time Conner reached the blanket, Alex was already pulling the cap off a bottle of water. Conner bent over, hands on her knees, gasping for air, while Alex leaned back on her elbows and grinned up at the gasping woman. "Looks like you need a little PT, officer," she said and took a big swallow from her water bottle.
Conner felt what little air was left in her lungs escape as she watched Alex's lips encircle mouth of the bottle, and saw a hint of her tongue as it met the hard edge of the plastic.
"Y...Yeah, I guess...I could use...a little more...exercise." Conner plopped down on the blanket, knowing that if she did not get off her feet she would end up on her face and in another humiliating situation.
"Well, I happen to know a very good personal trainer," Alex said, grinning, exposing the dimples that turned Conner's body to mush. Taking another long pull on the bottle, Alex wiped her mouth with the back of her hand and passed the water to Conner.
Conner took a long pull from the bottle and the water felt cool sliding down her throat. She held the bottle above her and poured what was left of the cold liquid across her stomach. Alex bit her bottom lip hard, trying unsuccessfully to stifle the deep groan that escaped her lips.
Conner's lips turned up at the corners with just a hint of a smile. She had heard the moan that Alex failed to suppress, and got a measure of courage from the sounds of lust and need rising from the woman next to her.
"Oh yeah, and just how much does this...ahh...'very good'...personal trainer charge for her services?" Conner was playing the game and hoped Alex was going to play along with her.
Leaning up on one elbow now, Alex found herself reaching for Conner, and drawing her fingers through the now warm water pooled on her belly, drew arcing designs on the woman's skin. Conner gasped and saw the muscles in her stomach respond to the soft touch of Alex's fingers.
Alex glanced up at Conner and, seeing the dark cloudy expression, decided to make her suffer just a little longer. "Hmm, let's see. I could probably negotiate you a good deal...ONLY...if you throw in a few sailboat trips, and maybe a romantic walk or two on the beach."
"Well...umm...I think ...I might...be able...to afford...that." Conner was still breathing hard to replenish the oxygen she had used during her run and subsequent bout of lust for the woman next to her.
Alex rolled over on her stomach so that she could see Conner better. "I was hoping that it was an offer you couldn't refuse." Alex wiggled her eyebrows and laughed as Conner lay there trying to recover.
"Damn woman, what did they feed you at the FBI Academy?" Conner tried to snarl, but the grin on her face kept getting in the way.
"Hell, they didn't feed us anything, woman. Once a week they would drop a ham bone from a helicopter and whoever reached it first got to eat. Makes for a good reason to run fast."
"Hmm...well now, Agent Montgomery...just what prompted the fast run today?" Conner added, grinning as she sat up on the blanket close enough to Alex to feel the heat from her body, and smell the sweet musky scent of her glistening skin. "Looks to me like all the food was eaten a long time ago."
Alex gave a low growl and leaned in, capturing the woman's mouth for another kiss, letting Conner use her imagination to answer her own question. Alex gently bit Conner's lower lip, savoring the salty sweetness of its taste, a mixture of the salt from her sweat, and the sweetness of her skin. Taking her time, Alex slowly pulled Conner's lower lip into her mouth, gently running her tongue over the firm, slick surface and only released it when she heard the guttural moan she was listening...waiting for. She placed her hand on Conner's face and gave her own mischievous look back to Conner.
"I'm waiting on dessert."
It was all Conner needed to hear. She stood and reached down to help Alex to her feet. Together they walked back towards the ranger station, each woman quiet in her own thoughts of what was yet to come that evening.
"I was just about to send someone out to look for you two. I hope you enjoyed your visit to the island."
Alex and Conner both grinned and stole a look at one another.
"We sure did...a very memorable trip," Alex replied as she stepped over into the little craft.
Conner handed Alex the backpack and climbed in beside her. They said their good-byes, as Alex untied the lanyard, then headed the short distance back to the boat.
Conner motored to the port side of the boat and Alex tied the lanyard to the cleat. The women climbed onboard and maneuvered the dinghy toward the stern so Conner could use the onboard winch to lift the small craft from the water. By the time the women completed the task, they were wet and tired.
"Why don't you go change into something dry, while I get her started and headed for home," Conner said as she handed Alex a dry towel.
"You sure you don't need any help?"
"Nah, I could do this in my sleep. Go ahead, get changed, you look like you're freezing."
Alex headed down the companionway as Conner climbed into the cockpit, and began uncovering the controls. She once again found herself in the warm, inviting cocoon, Conner used as her cabin. Alex removed her clothes. And as she began to dry the dampness from her cold body, her nerve endings screamed at the contact. Alex was close to becoming completely unwound. The only thing that had kept her from tearing Conner's clothes off and making love to her right there on the beach was the fact that they were both law enforcement officials, and the thought of getting arrested for indecent exposure, was enough to keep her raging hormones in check. Now, though there was nothing holding her back, and her body was screaming for relief.
Conner attempted to engage the motor, but each time she turned the key, the engine only sputtered, and growled its refusal to cooperate.
"Damn, Lady, come on. I know I haven't treated you very well lately, but god I need to get home...like now, I'm dying here."
Alex heard Conner swearing up on deck and smiled. Must be as frustrated as I am, she thought. She looked up through the forward hatch and saw that the moon was going to be full tonight, the weather perfect, thinking it wouldn't be so bad if they found themselves stranded.
"Damn, sonuvabitch...start damn you."
"Well, if you spoke to me like that, I just might give you the cold shoulder too." Alex laughed as she climbed up the ladder.
"Sorry, I'm...ummm, just sort of...ahh...in a hurry, ya know. Conner's face turned a crimson red as she looked at Alex's knowing face.
"Well, I was just thinking that it wouldn't be too bad if maybe we...you know...ahh...got stranded out here for the night." It was now Alex's turn to redden, as Conner's eyes lit up in comprehension of Alex's very strong hint.
"Hmm, You know, you may have a point there, Agent Montgomery. I seem to recall seeing a couple of steaks in the freezer below. I know I have a couple of bottles of wine on board. You think you might like to grill the steaks and dine with me under the stars?" Conner had taken to the idea immediately, and was now forming a great evening n her mind. 'Shady Lady' just might be doing me a big favor tonight, she thought.
"Well, if I remember correctly, you haven't been on the boat in quite a while...just how old are those steaks." Alex teased, "I'm not sure I want to get stranded out here if I have food poisoning."
"Cute. The steaks were left by Benny, the mechanic at the Marina. I let him use the boat sometimes and he gives me good deals when I need something repaired. He used it a couple of weeks ago, so I'm sure that's when he left them." Conner strolled very slowly over to Alex and stopped only when she could feel the heat radiating off her body.
"Anyway, the last thing I want to do to you tonight is give you food poisoning." Smiling and bringing her lips so close to Alex she could feel her breath, Conner whispered, "I have much...much more interesting things in store for you tonight."
Conner could hear the intake of breath as Alex's body responded to her words. Alex's eyes turned a deep blue and as her hand found Conner's face, she bent slowly and took Conner's warm lips between her own. Their tongues fought for control, as the heat surged through their veins. Alex let her hand slide down to the hollow of Conner's neck, stopping to fist the cloth of her shirt. Alex pulled Conner closer, and as their kiss deepened, she felt herself lose all resolve, and fell into the chasm of her desire.
Conner, gasped as Alex's hands inched their way down her chest. Using only her index fingers, Alex traced a burning path between her breasts, and continued down, urged on by the low moan coming from deep within Conner's throat. The muscles in the woman's stomach went into spasms as Alex spread her hands to gently caress the tight muscles under the thin fabric, and play circles around her navel. Electric shivers ran up her spine as Alex slowly took Conner's hands in her own and brought them up to lay flat against her chest.
Alex broke the kiss, and looked intently at Conner, her lips swollen from the long consuming kiss. She could feel Conner's hands tremble beneath her own, and knew she was as lost to the passion as she herself was.
"Can you feel how fast you make my heart beat?" Alex asked in a low husky voice.
Conner could not find words, only nodded, and pressed her hands closer against Alex's chest.
"I want you so much." Alex did not know how much longer she could keep standing on the deck. She did not know if the rocking was from the ocean or her equilibrium, but either way she knew she had to get Conner below...in the cabin...in the bed...inside her.
Conner took Alex's hand in her own and slowly turned toward the companionway, stopping at the opening to sate her need again for the sweet taste of Alex's lips. She climbed down the ladder, and turned to gently take Alex's waist as she descended into the salon. She wrapped her arms around Alex's torso and pressed her body close against the woman's back, slowly caressing the firm taut muscles of Alex's stomach, then climbing slowly to play with the sensitive skin just below her breasts.
Alex bent into the touch, and held onto the rungs of the ladder. Her legs were weak and shaking from the adrenaline surging through her body. Every nerve in her skin was on alert as Conner's hands teased and stroked. When Conner bent to tenderly bite the back of her neck, Alex released a pent up primitive growl from her throat, urging her on. Conner slowly moved her hands up and took a breast in each hand, gently squeezing. Alex was shaking so much Conner thought she might fall. Shifting her weight, she brought her right leg forward, placing it into the hot, wet V of Alex's legs.
"Oh...my...god," Alex cried as Conner's leg made contact with the bundle of nerves, only the fabric of her shorts separating them. Her knuckles white from griping the rungs of the ladder and losing the fight to remain standing, Alex allowed some of her weight to settle on Conner's leg.
"God, Conner...I...need...oh yes.
Alex completely lost the ability to speak as Conner gently pressed the sensitive nipples between her fingers while she once again leaned in to nip gently at her neck.
"You feel so...damn...good Alex...so soft." Conner's breath was coming in ragged gasps as she tried to remain in control. "...and you taste even better." She wanted this first time to be slow, special...unforgettable. She knew she had to fight hard to keep from taking Alex right here on the floor.
"I want you Alex...now...naked...in my bed..." Conner whispered hoarsely in her ear, as she pulled on the hard nipples, "...where I can touch you." Conner nipped at Alex's ear lobe, "...and taste you." She pulled her fingernails across the sensitive skin of Alex's stomach, "...and feel your entire body pressed against mine."
Alex used all the strength she could gather and turned around to face Conner, her eyes dark, her skin glistening, and her breath ragged, as she passionately consumed the other woman's lips.
Conner's lips parted to allow Alex's tongue to hungrily search out her own. Her hands entwined themselves in Alex's dark silky hair, pulling her closer, deeper. After a long moment, Alex broke the kiss, and slowly opened her eyes, eyes that pleaded of mercy. After a few moments, she finally found her voice.
"Conner, please...I need you."
A slow smile spread across Conner's face as she took Alex's hand and led her into the forward cabin. Conner turned, and again took Alex's lips in her own, tugging lightly at her bottom lip.
Conner pulled away and smiled gently at Alex. "Don't move" was all she said as she stepped to the port hatches and opened them. She came back to stand in front of Alex, and reached up to release the forward hatch above them, letting the cool night breeze glide through the cabin. The only light came from the full moon, and cast a gentle shadow over the two women.
Conner pulled Alex forward for another kiss as her fingers searched out the buttons of Alex's shirt. Conner felt the woman's hands join hers to quicken the chore, but Conner gently pushed them away.
"Let me, Alex...please."
Conner slowly unbuttoned Alex's shirt and very slowly pushed it off of her shoulders, exposing the small firm breasts she had caressed just moments ago.
"I want to undress you very slowly," Conner whispered as she leaned forward and bit Alex's collarbone. "...very slowly." She smiled.
Conner feathered kisses down Alex's chest, stopping to appreciate the beautiful curves of the woman's breasts, but careful to avoid the ultra sensitive nipples. Instead, placing tender bites and licks on the hot scorching skin around them. Alex reached out and put one hand on the bookcase and one hand on Conner's shoulder as she knelt before her.
Conner could feel the uncontrollable trembling of Alex's hands as she steadied herself. She let out a low hungry groan as she continued her journey down Alex's body, leaving a warm wet trail in the aftermath, as she kissed and licked the her way down this sensuous woman's stomach. The flavor was like no other Conner had ever tasted. A hint of saltiness mixed with what could only be the liquid fire of Alex herself. Conner growled a moan of hunger as she slowly circled the small indention of her navel. She felt Alex's hips thrust forward in an urgent need for contact as Conner gently nipped the skin just above the waistband of her shorts.
"Conner," Alex rasped. "Woman, you're...killing me. I need you baby, I need to feel you touch me...please.
"Soon love...very soon."
Conner gripped the buckle of Alex's belt and pulled the leather back through the clasp. Conner tore open the snap of Alex's shorts, feeling her strength weaken as she neared the wet heat that she yearned to taste. She grasped the sides of the shorts and pulled them down until they were bunched at Alex's feet, exposing the soft, clipped curls lying in the junction of Alex's legs. She slowly lifted each of Alex's legs to rid her of the encumbering clothes. When she was finished, and Alex stood before her totally nude, Conner reached out and, starting at her feet, slowly ran her hands up Alex's body, not stopping until she was once again standing and facing the most beautiful dark eyes she had ever seen.
"You are so, beautiful Alex."
Alex's eyes closed as Conner leaned in and kissed her neck, nipping lightly on her ear lobe.
"Ooooh, god, Conner, please...I need you...I need to feel you next to me." Grabbing the strap of Conner's swimsuit top, she pulled until the tie came undone. She reached behind her and released the tie in the back, letting the top fall between them to the floor.
Placing her hands flat on Conner's back, Alex slowly brought them around in a gentle caress until her hands cupped the small orbs of Conner's breasts.
Conner closed her eyes, threw her head back, and let out a deep moan as Alex massaged her nipples with the pads of her thumb, watching as the nipples hardened into small peaks, aching to be kissed. Conner's entire body jerked as she felt Alex take one small nipple in her mouth and circle it with the hot, wet smoothness of her tongue.
She dug her fingers in Alex's hair as she felt her bikini bottom being lowered and kicked the remnants of the swimsuit aside as it hit the floor. Lifting Alex's chin with her fingers, she urged the woman to stand so she could fully press her body against her own. The two women stood quietly in their embrace as they each explored the others body, placing tender kisses on the smooth hot skin of the other.
Conner shifted, bringing her leg between Alex's, and released a hungry moan as she felt the hot wetness. She kissed Alex deeply while gently while turning her towards the bed and laying her down, never breaking contact with Alex's mouth. Climbing up and straddling the Alex's leg, she let herself settle against the sensual skin beneath her.
"God, you feel so good, Alex," Conner whispered as she feathered kisses on the woman's face and brow. Alex melted into the shape of the other woman, closing her eyes to memorize the feel, the taste, the smell of this creature beneath her.
Lifting herself up on one arm, she lowered her lips to Alex's neck, tasting the sweet skin, while exploring her way down Alex's torso. Making slow trails downward, she finally came to Alex's breasts and kissed circles around each nipple. Alex entwined her fingers in Conner's hair, pulling her head where she needed to feel her lips, and her hips bucked under Conner as she blew a gentle breath against the nipple, then ever so slowly enveloped it in the warm soft cocoon of her mouth.
Alex had not allowed herself to feel any physical emotion in a long time...not since Feryle. Today, when she finally permitted Conner to release the pent up fire, she felt as if she would explode from the overload of emotions in her brain. She clung to Conner as if she were her lifeline, holding on as this gentle woman revived feelings she thought were lost forever, taking her over wave after wave of rolling passion. Alex threw her head back in the pillows and let out a mournful cry as she pushed Conner's shoulders, pleading for her to travel farther down her body.
Conner let herself be led, allowing Alex to tell her with her cries and urging hands what she needed. Slowly, she prolonged the sweet torture, knowing the release would eventually be worth it to Alex.
When she finally reached the junction between Alex's legs, and felt the soft curls against her cheeks, Conner could hardly contain her hunger. Inhaling the sweet musky scent of Alex made Conner long to taste her, knowing the explosion to follow, would consume them both.
Alex's skin was indescribably smooth, flawless, covering muscular legs. Conner nestled herself between Alex's legs, feeling the long sensuous limbs as they wrapped themselves around her shoulders and pulled her forward in a silent plea for solace. Conner teased the outer lips with her fingers, and gazed, for the first time, at the object of her desire. The small hard bundle of nerves that made up Alex's clitoris was reaching out for contact, pleading for a touch, a kiss. Instead, Conner turned her head and gently bit the inside of Alex's thigh.
Alex bucked wildly at the sweet pain and tightened her grip on Conner's head, pulling her toward her center, to the hot wetness that could only be cooled by Conner's mouth and tongue. Conner let herself be pulled in, and kissed the outer lips, tasting the warm sweet need flowing from this gorgeous woman.
She groaned in anticipation and she felt her own hips press against the bed in her own desire for release as she drew closer to the source of Alex's lust and longing. She slowly parted the soft lips encasing the hard bud of nerves and with a tender touch kissed the core of Alex's being.
Conner was overwhelmed with desire as she felt Alex's hips thrust up to meet her mouth and heard her cries. She moved closer and tucked the bud between her lips, sending spasms throughout Alex's body. She spread the outer lips wider and slowly licked the entire length of the shaft as Alex bucked beneath her.
"Conner, I need you...please." Alex's voice was almost a growl as she reached down and taking Conner hand, led her to the entrance of her sex, silently telling Conner what she needed.
Conner had an uncontrollable need to grind her hips against the bed beneath her. She could feel her own wetness seep from within the folds that held her aching clitoris. She reached down and moaned as she felt the wetness between her own legs and heard Alex whimper as the contact was broken. Delving deep for one luxurious moment, she felt the contractions as her body responded to her own touch, then she was bringing her fingers back out and up and she slide them into the slick wet opening that was the very core of Alex's being.
"Con...ner,...oh baby...that feels...so...good," Alex's breaths were torn and uneven as she rode the wave higher and higher.
Conner, pressed deeper and upward, knowing by Alex's torn cry that she had found the spot she was searching for. Slowly but firmly sliding her fingers in and out of Alex's womanhood, Conner stroked her to the peak. Slowing her ministrations, she held Alex there allowing her to linger, languishing in the heavenly torture.
Conner watched as Alex's face glowed with desire. Eyes closed and her head thrown back in ecstasy, waiting, pleading for the rapturous release she knew was sure to come, if Conner would only permit it.
Seeing the sweet torture on Alex's face let Conner know the woman was on the verge of climaxing. Drawing one arm under and around her leg, Conner gently opened Alex, completely exposing the small bud she knew would take her over the edge with just one touch. Conner eased closer, brushing her cheeks against the soft skin of Alex's thighs, hearing her moans of desire rising with every inch she traveled. Very slowly, Conner reached out and licked the swollen shaft in one long luxurious stroke, taking Alex over the edge of the abyss and holding her close as she fell into her orgasm.
"Oh Conner...I'm...it's...coming. "
Alex gripped Conner's head in her hand and buried her face closer.
"Yes...don't stop...oh my god...Conner."
Hearing Alex's cries of release and feeling the contractions around her fingers sent Conner over the edge, and they both fell into a uniting orgasm. The surprising release shook Conner to the core as she felt her own body quake from the wracking spasms, and she probed deeper, lapping up the liquid fire that flowed from Alex as her own body shuddered from the contractions.
Alex had never had an orgasm rack her body like the one she was now in the throes of experiencing. Every cell in her body screamed and the blood surged from her brain to her core as Conner's tongue slowly caressed the screaming bud of nerves. Conner let Alex's body continue the long slow release as she gently licked and kissed the ultra-sensitive nerves and felt the muscles contract as the orgasm overtook her body in a long slow wave.
She continued to gently press in and out as Alex's hips lifted up to meet her thrusts and after what seemed like a lifetime of rapture, Conner began to feel Alex's body begin to relax into a satisfied exhaustion.
Slowly licking and kissing the pulsing shaft, Conner let Alex settle quietly back to earth. Gently rubbing her cheeks against the inside of her thighs, she savored the aftershocks of her own release. When their breathing slowed, Conner began to slide out, but Alex caught her, hand urging her to stay.
"Don't leave me yet, I want to feel you inside me."
Conner could still feel the aftershock contractions of Alex's release as she pressed back inside. Alex let out a slow moan as she pressed her legs against Conner's head.
"Stay inside me and come up here. I want to feel you inside me when I kiss you."
Conner released a groan of her own and moved up, placing warm kisses on Alex's body on the way. When she reached Alex's face, she lowered her mouth to the other woman's lips, letting them both savor the remnants of Alex's essence that lingered on Conner's mouth.
"You are so beautiful," was all Conner could say. She did not have the words to describe what this woman had just made her feel as she came beneath her lips and around her fingers.
Kissing Conner gently, she told the woman what she knew words could never convey. Her hands trailed a light path from Conner's shoulders down to her hips, where they pressed hard against her. They lay pressed together, their bodies glistening from their passion, for a long while, taking pleasure in the warm glow that surrounded them.
Alex began to draw small, invisible circles on Conner's back with her fingers. Hearing the ragged breaths coming from the woman suddenly stirred a need in Alex to taste and feel the woman that had brought her such pleasure.
Alex shifted and slid her leg between Conner's and saw the surge of heat in the woman's eyes as her thigh made contact with the fire between Conner's legs. In one slow motion, Alex rolled over, taking Conner with her, until the other woman was pressed firmly beneath her body. Alex gently kissed Conner, pressing her tongue against the warm lips until they parted and she found the warm sweet organ that had just brought her so much joy.
Alex could taste herself on Conner's mouth and felt her own body stir again as she remembered the orgasm that had racked her body only moments before. She was surprised that she was already aroused again and pressed herself against Conner's leg, relishing the sweet sensation.
Sliding down Conner' s torso, Alex paused at the hollow of her neck and placed a light kiss there before continuing her slow decent, savoring every inch of her body on the way. Pushing herself up on one hand, Alex slowly bit the nipple of Conner's breast.
"Oh, Alex," Conner moaned and wrapped her legs around Alex's waist, pulling her closer.
Smiling at the effect she had on the woman, she slowly took the small nipple into her mouth, flicking it with her tongue until it was hard and she heard the haggard gasps from Conner.
"God, you taste good." Alex's eyes were hooded with desire as she looked at Conner, wanting to consume all of her in one mouthful.
"Ummm, no, you taste better. I can still taste you...I want to taste you again...now," Conner growled, the need apparent in her dark eyes.
"Soon, love...soon. But right now, you're all mine," Alex said as she slid further down Conner's body. She leaned in to kiss the taut stomach and lick a small circle around Conner's navel.
"You're all mine, and I don't want any distractions." Sliding further, she blew a light breath on the dark curls between Conner's legs.
"I want to see your face when you come for me." She bent and nipped at the soft skin of Conner's inner thigh.
Conner let out a long slow moan and reached for Alex's face. Cupping her cheek in her hand, Conner smiled and gently lifted her hips, silently telling Alex what she needed.
"Don't think I'm letting you off that easy," Alex said with an evil smile and bent to kiss the moist outer lips of Conner's sex. "I seem to remember you making me beg, and now it's my turn."
Alex's throaty growl sent shockwaves down Conner's spine as she felt Alex's lips graze her lower lips once more.
Alex reached up and caressed Conner's small firm breasts as she continued to tease the woman unmercifully. Using her free hand, she reached down and massaged Conner's lower legs, wanting to taste, feel, and touch every inch of her at once.
Slowly, gently, and with featherlike touches, her hands caressed the soft skin beneath her fingers, finally meeting at the hot, wet center of Conner's desire. Alex lifted Conner's legs over her shoulders and lowered her face to drink the sweet nectar that was, and could only be, Conner.
Alex inhaled the sweet musky scent and dove deeper as she ran her tongue beside the hard bundle of nerves, careful not to make contact. Conner thrust her hips higher, urging Alex lower to the warm wet opening that led to her center. Alex smiled and pulled back just enough to make Conner think she was leaving, and Alex heard her agonizing whimper. Turning slightly, she gently bit the swollen lips of Conner's sex, then slid her tongue across the wet slick folds, sending Conner to a new, more potent summit.
"Aleeeex...oh god...please...touch me...I need you so much...pleeese.
Conner's fingers were intertwined in Alex's soft mane. Her hands pulled the woman closer, imploring...no, demanding a reprieve from the agonizing pleasure. Alex teased, licked, drank of the woman until Conner was openly begging for more.
Alex...Alex...please...I...I need you...inside me now...god, Alex pleeeese.
Conner succumbed to the passion she felt, passion she had not allowed in her life for too long. She let herself fall, knowing Alex would keep her safe, would watch over her as she rode the waves of her passion.
Alex felt the transformation in Conner as she shed the protective shield she had built around herself. Having Conner allow her to experience this vulnerability made Alex tremble with a new desire for the woman beneath her.
As Conner lay naked beneath her physically and emotionally, her emotions and passion raw, and exposed; Alex pulled Conner closer, embracing, nurturing, and encouraging the conversion from protector to protected. She celebrated the freedom their joining had brought, and felt the passion of her rebirth rise to new heights.
In one swift movement, Alex dove her fingers deeply into the fire and placed a long, slow kiss on the swollen bud, enveloping the warm, wet core between her lips.
The sudden overwhelming change in sensations drove Conner to the edge of the cliff and the muscles in her back convulsed, bringing her to a half-sitting position. Resting on her elbows, she opened her eyes and met the dark, penetrating gaze of the woman commanding her passion. The look in Alex's eyes conveyed the words she would not stop to utter, words that encouraged her to let go, to free herself, to feel the passion, to fall into arms that would protect her, and not let her fall.
Alex felt the hot walls of Conner's core pulse as the first waves of the orgasm gripped her. Conner tucked her feet beneath herself, lifting her hips, trying to get the other woman deeper.
"Oh, God Alex...yeeeess...harder baby...I need you deep."
Alex curled her fingers up, searching for and finding the spot she sought. Plunging hard, she lifted Conner higher and higher until she ascended to the apex of her desire. Gently, almost reverently, Alex licked the hot, hard bundle of nerves, sucking it between her lips, feeling the spasms as Conner fell into the flood of her climax.
"A...Aleeex...ohmygod...don't stop...yyes...ooohhhh yeees."
Conner gripped the back of Alex's head, pulling her deeper as she rode the waves of her orgasm.
As Conner floated peacefully back to earth, Alex moved upwards, leaving her fingers buried in the wet, sweet core, and captured the other woman's lips in her own, sharing the nectar of their joining.
Conner wrapped her arms tightly around Alex's shoulders and her legs around her firm hips. Holding each other close, they let their breathing slow, lingering in the afterglow of their lovemaking, astounded by their awakened passion and need for one another.
Alex had not known desire this fierce in such a long time and the emotions had her spinning. For a fraction of a moment, Feryle's face flashed into her mind and she felt a surge of disloyalty for what they once shared. They had shared this intense passion in the first few years of their relationship, then as it always happens in long term relationships, their passion changed from sexual lust to loving contentment. Was she being unfaithful? No! Would Feryle want her to live life alone, and lonely? Certainly Not! It was this moment Alex felt herself set free, not from the love they had shared, she never wanted to be free of those memories, but from the pain, the loss, the loneliness. Alex felt the weight of the last months lift from her shoulders as she held tight to the magnificent woman beneath her.
Conner could feel Alex trembling and reached to lift her chin. As Alex looked into the eyes of the woman she had just made love to, Conner saw a solitary tears slide down her cheek. She reached out with the pad of her thumb and wiped the tear from Alex's cheek.
"What's wrong?" Conner's heart lurched as she tried to interpret the reason for the tear. Frantic to know the reason, Conner asked, "Are you OK? Did I hurt you?"
Alex only swiveled her head and bent to place a tender kiss on Conner's neck
Letting her head fall to the pillow in frustration, Conner reached up and tore a hand through her hair.
"Oh God Alex...you hate me, don't you?
Alex tried to speak but was cut off as Conner continued.
"Damn, I knew we should have taken things more slowly." Taking an exasperated breath, she reached out and cupped Alex' face in her hands. "God, Alex, don't push me away." A tear formed in Conner's eyes, and slid down the side of her face toward her ear. "I'm sorry...so sorry, I knew you weren't ready for this, but I just couldn't stop. I nev--"
Alex stopped the words with a deep absorbing kiss, one that took Conner by complete surprise. Alex's tongue pushed and probed, opening Conner's lips, and with passion, not words, she made her lover feel what she felt at that moment...Peace...Tranquility...the beginning flames of...yes...the only thing it could be...love.
As Conner began to realize the tears Alex shed were tears of joy, not anguish, she wrapped her arms tightly around the woman and let herself flow into the warm embrace of their newfound love.
Tongues probed, hands searched, and senses mingled as they once again took each other to the other side, only this time their descent was long, slow, warm, and in complete harmony with one another.
As their breathing slowed and they lay peacefully content within each other's arms, they slept.
