Skies over Nebraska , 1968
Kate sat by the window with Danni asleep next to her, head resting on Kate's shoulder. Danni's hand was tucked into Kate's. Kate watched the ground get closer and closer, the pilot announcing their arrival a moment before. Kate had to admit, she hadn't planned to be taking this same flight back to Nebraska so soon, but was glad Danni had asked her to accompany her.
Kate blinked, not sure she'd heard correctly. "What?"
"She's gone," Danni whispered, her legs nearly collapsing as her legs gave out from under her.
"No!" Kate hurried the few steps to Danni, catching her before she hit the floor. "I've got you," she panted, heart pounding from panic and exertion. "Oh, baby," she cooed as the dam broke and so did Danni. Kate slid them to the floor, holding Danni against her as she rocked her. "I'm so sorry," Kate said, her voice shaky as she tried to hold her own emotions inside: the last thing Danni needed was for her to fall apart when she needed her. "It's going to be okay. It's going to be okay."
Kate had taken Danni to her bed and had held her all night. Danni had gone through intermittent periods of crying, sleeping and simply talking about the woman whom she'd known for thirty years, as well as who had made such a profound difference in her life.
"Sweetheart," Kate murmured, bringing up a hand and brushing some strands of hair out of Danni's face. "We're about to land."
Danni's eyes blinked open, for a moment looking confused and disoriented. She looked at Kate then lifted her head, scrubbing her face with her hands. "Sorry I fell asleep on you," she said, words muffled behind her hands.
"It's okay," Kate said, squeezing Danni's hand. "I'm glad you got some sleep; I know last night wasn't exactly the greatest sleep of your life."
Danni blew out a breath and glanced past Kate to the window and scenery beyond. The ground was getting closer and closer, details of the airport now recognizable, even if the cars looked like toys.
Within an hour, they were loaded into a rental car and headed to Wayne . Danni was quiet, which Kate expected. She drove the car with silent precision, staring straight ahead and often chewing on her bottom lip. After an hour on the road, Kate decided to break some ice.
"What's the plan, Danni?" she asked softly, glancing over at Danni, feeling a bit out of her element. Danni had been so quiet, and they had yet to talk about what had happened on the couch before Mary's call. Despite the issue at hand, that couch incident had never been far from Kate's mind.
Danni glanced over at Kate then looked back to the road. "We'll stop by the farmhouse and drop off the bags, as well as you can relax, then I'll head over to Allison's house and see what's what. Her estate attorney told me Allison's cousin, Markus will be in town to discuss details and her will."
Kate was silent for a long moment, processing what she'd just been told. Finally, she decided to speak her mind. "Danni, did you ask me here as some sort of comfort food for you, waiting back at the farmhouse?"
Confused, Danni looked over at Kate. "What?"
"I came here because you asked me to, but also because I want to support you and be there for you." Kate reached across the seat and took Danni's hand in her own. "Don't shut me out and don't treat me like some piece of furniture."
Danni pulled the car up to a red traffic light, and then was able to give Kate her full attention for a few moments. She studied Kate's eyes and could see the hurt within their depths as well as the determination. It dawned on her suddenly that she was thinking of Mary, and how Mary would be far more of a hindrance than a help. Finally, she brought Kate's hand up to her lips and placed a kiss on her knuckles. "Okay," she said softly, a small smile curling her lips. "Okay."
The rental car pulled up to a two-story farmhouse, even though the attic area technically made it three. It was painted white with black shutters, the full porch in front inviting with two matching rockers. The farmhouse was situated on hundreds of acres, many of which were grazed by cows and horses.
"This is where you grew up, huh?" Kate asked, stepping out of the car and opening the back door to grab her suitcase.
"Yep. After Mom died two years ago I kept the farmhouse but leased off the land. Share croppers work the dairy and lands, now."
Luggage dropped off just inside the front door, the two loaded back in the car and headed across the small town to the huge house that was the Hughes' house and estate. Kate had been there before, and it was no less intimidating as it had been months before.
Danni pulled up in front of the house, two strange cars parked in front. Her stomach was in knots, though she tried her best to hold it together. Likely, this would be one of the last times she ever saw the house as Markus would probably get the house in the will - which was fine with Danni, as she had enough property to worry about. As long as the business was hers alone, she didn't care where everything else went.
Killing the engine of the rental, Danni glanced over at Kate, who was already looking at her. "Ready?"
"Ready," Kate said, reaching across the seat to squeeze Danni's hand in comfort.
The two walked into the house, where Allison's butler met them at the door, his eyes red-rimmed, though he tried his best to hold it together. "Mr. Smith is waiting for you in the library, Miss Felts," he said.
"Thanks, Fred." Against her normal practice, Danni brought a hand up and squeezed Fred's shoulder, the shoulder of a man who had worked for Allison for more than fifteen years. He smiled in understanding then led Danni and Kate to the library.
Kate's mouth fell open slightly when she stepped through the tall, double doors into the large library. Floor to ceiling bookshelves were built into the wall, thousands of leather-bound books spined out on them. Ornate molding adorned the ceiling and beautiful, ornate furniture adorned the room, itself. A large, carved desk sat in the center, an older man dressed in an expensive-looking suit sitting behind it with another older man - also in suit and tie - sitting across the desk from him.
Danni led the way in, the man behind the desk standing and extending his hand to her. "Hello, Matt."
"Danni, it's good to see you," he said, shaking Danni's hand.
The other man also stood, him and Danni sharing a quick hug. "It's good to see you, Markus."
"I just wish it were under different circumstances," he said with a heavy sigh.
Danni squeezed his arm. "Kate, this is Matt Smith, Allison's personal attorney and her cousin, Markus. Gentlemen, this is my dear friend, Kate Hannigan." Both men nodded a greeting to Kate. "Alright, let's get this taken care of," Danni sighed, pulling a chair over for Kate and then sat next to Markus.
"Alright," Matt said, taking his seat again. He clicked open his briefcase and removed a bound stack of legality and set it on the desk in front of him. Tugging on a pair of glasses, he began to go over the legalities of Allison's will.
Later that night, Kate and Danni lay on their sides facing each other in Danni's bed in her old room on the third floor.
"I'm sorry you're stuck here with me tonight," Danni said. "I got rid of all the old mattresses to the other beds after mom died. I wasn't exactly expecting to come back here now and to have company, to boot."
"It's okay," Kate smiled. "I think I can handle sharing a bed with you." Kate reached a hand out and tucked Danni's hair behind her ear. "You look tired," she commented, brushing Danni's cheek with her fingertips before she dropped her hand back to the mattress.
"I am," Danni admitted. "Physically and emotionally exhausted."
"Allison was really generous; I can't believe she left everything to you except the house."
"Yeah. I was glad she gave the house to Markus and not Harvard's son."
"Allison's late husband. He had a son with one of his mistresses, and the kid always hated Allison: felt she kept his father away from him or some crap," Danni explained.
"That's too bad. How did Allison feel about her husband having a child with another woman?"
Danni grinned. "Allison has been with more people - men and women - during her marriage than most are in a lifetime. She and Harv loved each other on some level, but the marriage was mostly for show: it gave Harv a beautiful woman on his arm to look respectable, meanwhile they both lived their own lives."
Kate's brow furrowed. "I can't imagine that was very fulfilling for either of them."
Danni shrugged the one shoulder that wasn't pressed against the mattress. "It wouldn't be for me, but I guess it worked for them." Danni finished her sentence with a jaw-popping yawn.
"Let's get some sleep," Kate said, leaning forward and placing a soft kiss on her lips. "Turn over," she said softly, "let me hold you."
Danni turned to her other side and Kate scooted up behind her and snaked an arm over her waist. Danni took Kate's hand in hers and scooted back enough so their bodies were pressed completely together.
"Good night, Kate," she whispered.
"'Nite," Kate replied sleepily.
The sun was out and birds were singing. Kate felt herself rise into the world of consciousness as well as felt Danni still pressed against her. She opened her eyes and saw the back of Danni's head and realized neither of them had moved the entire night. Other than the fact that her shoulder and hip was screaming at her for staying in the same position, she felt amazingly refreshed and content. From Danni's heavy breathing she could tell that Danni was still deeply asleep, which was good; she knew Danni needed the rest.
As quietly as she could, Kate slid out of bed and made her way downstairs to use the restroom, brush her teeth and wash her face. She made her way into the kitchen and set about to make coffee. The night before they had stopped at the town grocery store and picked up supplies.
She found the percolator and filled it with water when Danni stepped into the room. "Good morning," Kate said with a bright smile.
"'Morning," Danni said, walking over to Kate. "This is the first time I haven't seen a sunrise in way too long."
"Is that a good thing?" Kate asked, turning to face Danni once she had the percolator ready to go.
Danni grinned with a nod. "I love sunrises, but not because I see them with insomnia."
Kate beamed. "I'm glad you slept so well, then."
Danni reached out and gathered Kate into her arms. She held her for a long time, neither speaking, just holding on. She rested her cheek on the top of Kate's head, which was tucked under her chin. "Thank you for being here," she said at length.
Kate could have stayed where she was forever. She felt like she had come home and never wanted to leave. "Of course," she said. "There's nowhere else I want to be right now."
Danni felt her heart begin to pound so hard she wondered if Kate could feel it. She knew she had to get some distance between her and Kate. With one final squeeze, she stepped away. "I'm glad you got the coffee going, 'cuz I could sure use a cup."
"Well, you sit yourself down and talk to me while I make us some breakfast."
"Kate, I don't expect you to wait on me."
"I know that, Danni." Kate looked up into Danni's eyes and could tell Danni was going to argue this one. "Honey," she began, hands on Danni's arms. "Let me do this for you. I know you don't expect it, but I'd really like to make you breakfast. Okay?"
Danni sighed and nodded. "Alright. But I got dinner."
"Fine. Scoot." Kate playfully swatted Danni's behind as she turned to walk over to the kitchen table. "Do you have a waffle maker? I can make us homemade waffles."
"Yeah. Mom kept it in that corner cabinet on the bottom," Danni pointed.
Kate found it and tugged the heavy maker to the countertop then began to gather all the ingredients she'd need. "My daughter absolutely loves my waffles," she explained. "The true secret of a good waffle, though is using topping them with jelly instead of syrup."
"Jelly?" Danni asked, brow raised.
Danni watched Kate work, but her mind went back to the reason she was back in Wayne. "You know I knew Allison for more than thirty years?"
Kate turned and looked at Danni, who looked to be on the verge of tears. "Sweetie," she whispered, walking over to her. She hugged Danni's head to her chest, stroking her hair. "I know this is hard."
Danni wrapped her arms around Kate's waist, reveling in the softness of Kate's breasts, which her head was pillowed against. "Yeah, this pretty much sucks. I need to go to F&H today and talk to everyone; I'm sure they're wondering what the fate of the company is."
Kate was startled when suddenly she was pulled down onto Danni's lap, straddling her hips. She recovered quickly and returned the hug she found herself enfolded in. She sensed Danni's need to be close and for comfort, and she was certainly willing. She ran her fingers through Danni's hair, once again Danni's head resting against her breasts.
"You scare me, Kate," Danni admitted, her words muffled into the hug.
"Why?" Kate pulled out of the hug just enough to look at Danni. She brushed some strands of hair out of Danni's face.
"Because I'm starting to need you," Danni said, her stomach ready to revolt at the realization.
Kate smiled, hand cupping Danni's face. "Danni, what we had never ended. It was savagely interrupted, but it never ended. If George hadn't done what he did, I'd wager we'd still be together."
Danni looked into Kate's eyes and she knew that though Kate was her past, she wanted her to be part of her future. She brought her hands up and cupped Kate's face and brought it down until their lips met. She quickly deepened the kiss, wanting Kate to know what she was so afraid to say.
Kate was surprised at the move, but recovered quickly. She wrapped her arms around Danni's neck and gave herself fully to the kiss, which was slow, deep and exploratory. It wasn't a kiss meant to enflame, but rather to water the seed that had been planted so long ago. She sighed into the kiss, enjoying the feel of Danni's tongue caressing her own, as well as Danni's soothing caresses across her back.
The kiss came to a natural end, Danni and Kate both left breathless. Kate rested her forehead against Danni's. "Let's just take it a day at a time, okay?" she whispered, caressing the soft skin of Danni's jaw and neck. "Give us a chance, Danni." She placed a lingering kiss on full lips. "Please. Give us a chance."
Kate stood back, leaning against a wall as Danni climbed a makeshift stage in the main area of production at F&H Industries. She had a microphone in her hand and was waiting for everyone to settle down, as she'd called the entire force in for a mandatory company meeting, including those who had the day off. Once she had silence, Danni began to speak.
"Good morning, everyone. I truly appreciate you coming in today. God, you have no idea how much I wish it were for different reasons." Her voice clipped on the last couple words so Danni cleared her throat, trying to get her emotions back under control. Looking out over the crowd, she could see the red-rimmed eyes and some people who were opening crying. "You all know what happened a couple nights ago, and that Allison is no longer with us. I'm here today because I'm sure many of you have questions, and I'd like to answer those. So, let me start by assuring you that F&H isn't going anywhere, and your jobs are safe. Nothing will change here, except possibly expansion. That was already in the works even before Allison's accident. I'm sure some of you had already heard about that." Danni felt her heart expand with pride for F&H and a deep, profound grief that Allison was no longer there to enjoy the fruits of their tremendous labors.
Kate brought a hand up and swiped at a tear. She could literally feel the grief and sadness rolling off Danni in waves. Danni glanced over at her and she gave her a brave smile. You can do this, Danni. I love you.
Danni took a deep breath and turned back to her workers. "Okay. Who wants to start with questions?"
Forty-five minutes later, Kate still leaned against the wall, but she watched as Danni interacted with her employees. There were hugs and tears shared as she talked to people, listened to people, and was just an overall amazing presence. It could be felt all around, the energy and calm Danni brought to the room and to her people.
Finally, Danni made her way to Kate. "Hey."
"Hey there. How are you?"
Danni sighed and shrugged, glancing out over the room that was clearing out. She'd given her employees the day off. "I think that went well. I hope I was able to assuage their fears."
"You were amazing today, Danni," Kate complimented. "So good with everyone. I can tell you love each and every one of those people."
Danni looked down at her shoes and nodded. "Yes. I do." She met Kate's gaze. "They do good work for me, and are true to all my designs. It's pretty incredible, really."
"I'm so proud of you," Kate smiled. "You are truly amazing."
Danni laughed. "I think you're a bit biased, but thank you. So, are you hungry? Want to catch some lunch before our next stop?"
"Sure. What's the next stop?"
Danni let out a deep breath. "Well, as you know, Markus asked me to organize the service, so..."
Kate nodded. "Okay."
Sitting at a table in Carson's Diner, Kate dug into her spaghetti lunch special as Danni sampled her rib sandwich. "You know," Kate said, wiping her mouth of excess sauce. "This very cafe was the beginning of the road to how I found you in Maine."
"Oh?" Danni asked, brow raised.
"Absolutely. I sat right over there," she pointed to the counter with filled stools, "and flat out asked two very creepy old men who sat next to me. They and the waitress pointed me in the direction of Allison's house."
Danni grinned before she sipped from her iced tea. "Perhaps I should leave a massive tip."
Kate laughed. "May not be a bad idea."
Danni stood outside the solid wood door that led to Holts' Family Funeral Home. She felt Kate's hand on her arm, and that alone gave her the strength to open the door and enter. Inside, she found a long hallway which led to an open area where various models of caskets were displayed: a showplace for the dead. A man in a black suit hurried up to them.
"Can I help you?" he asked, his beady dark eyes darting from Danni to Kate and back.
"I'm Danielle Felts, here to see Allison Hughes."
"Of course!" the man said, far more ass-kissing talent than was necessary.
Kate and Danni were led to a separate room where a form lay on a stretcher. Kate held her emotions in when she realized that the form was not only a human being, but that the human being was Allison. She glanced over to Danni, trying to read her emotions.
"I have to warn you," the man said, hand on the sheet that covered Allison's body. "It was a really bad accident."
Danni nodded and gave the man an appreciative smile. "Thank you."
Danni took a deep breath as the man pulled the sheet back, revealing Allison's head to the top of her shoulders. Danni felt Kate step up beside her and heard her gasp, which she could tell Kate tried to stifle. Instantly tears sprang to Danni's eyes, though she held them in check.
Allison's eyes were closed and her face unbelievably pale and ashen. Deep bruising marked the entire left side of her face, the skin a deep purple on her jaw. Allison almost looked like Frankenstein's monster as she had a roadmap of stitched cuts all over her forehead and down her nose, which was obviously broken.
"Oh, Allison," Danni whispered, bringing up a hand and smoothing back dull, blood-encrusted hair.
"What would you like to do, Miss Felts?" the man asked softly. "Open casket or closed? Makeup can be used, but these horrible bruises will be very difficult to cover."
Danni looked at the bruises in question then turned to Kate. "What do you think?"
Kate sighed, bringing up a hand to swipe at a tear. "I think Allison deserves the dignity of a closed casket. Look at her, Danni; she was so deeply physically injured from this accident." She turned to Danni. "What would she want?"
Danni smiled, even as tears fell silently down her cheeks. "She would die before she'd let anyone see her like this. Pardon the pun." With those words, she fell apart.
Kate took her in her arms and held her close. "Please give us a moment," she asked the funeral home worker, who quickly left the room, closing the door behind him. Kate let her cry, knowing it was best to let her get it all out and then move on to finish with the funeral arrangements.
Several moments later, Danni got herself back under control. She accepted the tissue Kate handed her with a quiet word of thanks. "I'm sorry," she murmured.
"That guy must think I'm a complete idiot."
"Not likely in his business," Kate said, helping to wipe away tear streaks. "So, what do you want to do, sweetie?" she asked softly, getting them back on track so Danni could get it over with.
Danni sighed and looked over at Allison. "You know, it's so strange: I keep expecting her to sit up and yell at me for being indecisive."
Kate smiled and took Danni's hand, Danni entwining their fingers. "I'm sure she's shouting a few words to you from her cloud."
Danni chuckled. "Yeah, drinking a scotch." She blew out a loud breath. "Okay, let's do a closed casket." She sighed and ran a hand through her hair. "So much to do."
"So let's double fist it," Kate suggested. "Tell me what you need done and I'll do it."
Danni looked at Kate, relieved by the offer and the help. "Okay. How about this: I'll take you back to the house and you can make some phone calls. There are a few of Allison's friends and colleagues that I know she'd want to be told personally. While you do that, I'll go to Allison's house and get her an outfit to be buried in and finish up with all the details for the funeral and make arrangements for a reception afterward."
"You've got it. Give me the phone numbers and I'll get going on it."
"Yes, it is terrible, and I'm sorry to have break the news to you," Kate said into the phone. "The service will be next Tuesday at two p.m." She marked a check next to the woman's name on Danni's list. "You're welcome. Danni will be in touch soon. Goodbye, now."
Kate cradled the handset and was about to pick it up again and dial when she heard the front door of the house open and someone enter. She was startled when an attractive young woman stepped into the kitchen.
"Who are you?" the woman asked, looking just as startled. "Where's Danni?"
"My name is Kate and Danni is out running some errands. "Can I help you?"
The woman snorted and shed her lightweight jacket. "I doubt it, and I'm Mary."
Kate felt her stomach fall, realizing she was looking at the woman Danni called her girlfriend: the woman Danni had sex with, spent time with and, presumably loved.
"You're the California friend, right?" Mary asked, pulling out a chair at the kitchen table where Kate sat, and sat down. "The one with the daughter who just got married?"
"Yes." Kate returned Mary's gaze: Mary looked as though she were picking Kate apart, her lips pursed and dark eyes burning a hole through her. "Can I get you something to drink?" Kate asked, feeling uncomfortable.
Mary grinned. "You're not the lady of the house, and no. I'm fine, thank you. I'll just wait for Danni to come home."
Kate felt her ire rising, though said nothing as she knew Mary was right. So, instead she returned her attention to her list. She picked up the receiver but stopped when once again the front door was opened and someone entered the house. Kate was beyond relieved when she saw Danni step into the room. Danni met her gaze then saw Mary sitting there.
"Hi, baby," Mary said, getting up and walking over to Danni, where she took her in a tight hug and lingering kiss.
Kate looked away, unable to watch the display.
"I'm sorry I couldn't get her sooner, but I had a case I had to finish up first," Mary explained, arms wrapped loosely around Danni's waist.
"It's okay," Danni said, not sure what to do. Mary was the last person she wanted to see, though knew she'd show up sooner or later.
"Why's she here?" Mary asked, indicating Kate with a nod of her head.
"She came to help and has been incredible," Danni said, immediately starting to tense up, as she could tell Mary did not like the fact that Kate was there.
"That's great, but I'm here now." Mary pulled away from Danni and turned to look at Kate, a possessive hand on Danni's arm. "You can go on home to California now, Kate. You're no longer needed here."
Danni was stunned. "Mary! What the hell did you say that for?"
"Because it's true. She's no longer needed here."
" I need her here, and I w ant her here," Danni raged.
Mary looked into Danni's face and suddenly it all made sense. She looked back and forth between the two, finally setting on Danni again. "Are you fucking her?" she asked, her own anger building.
Kate could only stare, shocked by the woman.
"Get out of my house, Mary," Danni growled. Part of her anger was because of how Mary was talking about Kate, and part of it was from guilt.
"Fuck you, Danni! I came here to be with you during this. Who the hell do you think you are?" She turned on Kate. "What the hell have you done with my girlfriend, you bitch?"
"That's enough, Mary!" Danni grabbed Mary by the arm and tugged, dragging her to the front door.
"I hope you're getting a good fuck out of it, Kate," Mary yelled, "Danni's a cold-hearted bitch so you won't get nothin' else!"
"Out!" Danni slammed the door and rested against it for a moment as she tried to get herself under control. She knew she needed to do the right thing and break it off with Mary officially, but right now was not a good time.
Pushing off the door, she headed back to the kitchen where she saw Kate standing at the counter, back to Danny and head down.
"Are you okay?" Danni asked, walking up to Kate and hugging her from behind. "I'm so sorry she did that and said those horrible things."
"I'm okay," Kate said, though she sounded as shaken as she was. She leaned back into Danni, placing her arms over Danni's. "Why did she act that way?"
Danni tightened her hold on Kate, pressing her body more firmly against her. "I think she figured it out," she said into Kate's ear.
Kate shivered at the soft voice. "Figured what out?"
"That I'm in love with you," Danni whispered.
Kate's heart quickened at the admission and Danni's closeness. "Danni," she sighed.
"Yes?" Danni whispered against the side of Kate's neck just before she nuzzled it, leaving a kiss there.
"I love you," Kate said, eyes closing as her head tilted, giving Danni access. She reached back and buried her fingers in Danni's hair, encouraging the soft kisses.
Danni knew it was absolutely pointless to try and deny her feelings or resist Kate any longer. The dam had been broken, and now she wanted nothing more than to bring Kate fully into her heart and her life. As she continued to kiss Kate's neck, her hands went on the move. The slid down Kate's stomach and to the waistband of her broom skirt before moving back up and finally cupping Kate's breasts.
Kate let out a soft sigh, back arching at the touch. She'd waited so long for this, so long it almost felt like she was dreaming. "Yes," she whispered. She whimpered as Danni squeezed her breasts, her kisses on her neck becoming hotter and wetter.
Suddenly, Kate was turned around and lifted until she was sitting on the counter behind her. Once seated, she immediately grabbed Danni, pulling her into a passionate kiss as Danni moved to stand between Kate's spread knees. The kiss was primal as both women let go of any restraint.
Danni broke from the kiss and returned to Kate's neck, her fingers tugging at the buttons on Kate's blouse. When it was finally open, she shoved it off Kate's shoulders and unsnapped her bra, dropping it to the floor with Kate's shirt.
"Oh god!" Kate moaned as her nipple was surrounded by the wet warmth of Danni's mouth. She clutched the back of Danni's head, pressing her deeper into her flesh.
Danni gave both breasts attention before she returned to Kate's mouth. "I want you so bad," she whispered into the kiss.
"You've got me," Kate assured, wrapping her legs around Danni's hips and pulling them as close together as possible. She wanted Danni to crawl inside and stay there forever.
"Okay, let's see if I can do this," Danni said, taking hold of Kate's behind and lifting with a grunt.
Kate giggled, tightening her legs around Danni and holding on as Danni stumbled through the house and up the stairs and finally into her bedroom. "Your bedroom would be on the third floor," Kate laughed as they both fell down on the bed, Danni on top.
Danni grinned, her back screaming at her for doing something so ridiculous, but she was glad she had. "I know. Thank god we haven't had dinner yet or I may not have been able to do that."
"Hey!" Kate laughed, giving Danni a playful swat on her behind. "I want this off," she said, tugging on Danni's shirt.
Danni pulled her shirt and bra off then was surprised when a deceptively strong Kate shoved her to her back and laid on top of her. She moaned into the kiss at the feel of their naked breasts pressed together.
Kate insinuated one of her thighs between Danni's, both moaning at the contact. She left Danni's mouth and moved to her neck, one of her hands coming up to cup one of Danni's breasts. "I love the fact that you don't have to hide these beautiful breasts anymore," she murmured, running her palm in a slow circle over the rigid flesh.
Danni groaned, pressing her breast further into Kate's touch. She ran her hands down the smooth plain of Kate's back until she reached her behind. She palmed the flesh in both hands and pressed Kate harder into her, both their hips beginning to move, rocking gently against the thigh of the other.
Kate moaned, leaving Danni's neck as her hips began to rock a bit more, pleasure spreading through her. Quickly she lost control of herself, her hips rocking desperately against Danni and her moans breathy whimpers.
Danni held on, her own pleasure secondary as she felt Kate's need. It didn't take long before Kate cried out, her face buried in Danni's neck. Danni caressed Kate's back and hair, her own release just on the edge but not quite tipping her over.
After a long moment Kate came back to earth and chuckled. She lifted herself to her elbows and looked into Danni's flushed face. "God, what is it with you? I can never control myself and turn into a 14 year old."
Danni grinned. "I thought I was the boy?"
Kate grinned. "Do you still have that little contraption?"
Danni grinned and nodded. "It's back home. I was going to toss it after I came back to the US, but it had been part of me for nine years so I couldn't just let it go."
"Well," Kate said against Danni's lips. "Maybe we'll have to bring it out one of these days."
Danni accepted the kiss and quickly deepened it. Her body was thrumming and alive. She reached down and took handfuls of Kate's skirt, bringing the garment up until she felt the satiny smoothness of Kate's panties. Kate sighed into the kiss when Danni wormed her hands inside and cupped Kate's bare flesh. Immediately she could feel the moist warmth and had to feel the source.
Kate gasped and broke from the kiss as Danni's fingers trailed through the saturated folds of her sex. "Oh yes," she whispered, resting her forehead against Danni's shoulder.
"God, you are soaked," Danni murmured, reveling in the slickness. Even in the somewhat awkward position, she easily found Kate's hard, engorged need. Using two fingers, she began to caress and rub.
Kate's hips moved with Danni's fingers, all thought gone until finally she cried out, her hips lurching with the power of her release. "My god," she panted. "I've had more orgasms in the last ten minutes than I have in the last twenty years."
Danni grinned. "And one of those I gave to you."
Kate grinned. "That you did." She gave Danni a quick kiss then pushed up to her knees. She quickly untied and removed Danni's shoes, followed by her socks and finally her jeans and panties. Looking down at the incredible body that was Danni, it literally made her mouth water. "Your turn."
Danni watched as Kate finished undressing herself then happily accepted her as Kate lay herself back down. They shared a deeply passionate kiss before Kate moved down to Danni's breasts, humming into the flesh as she took as much of Danni's left breast into her mouth as possible.
"You know," she said, raising her head and swiping at the hard nipple with her tongue. "Before I met you, I never even gave breasts a second thought." Another swipe. "But after," Kate lowered her head and began to feast once more, Danni moaning and burying her fingers in Kate's hair. "Your breasts are the most beautiful I've ever seen."
"Thank you," Danni panted. She felt like she was about to explode. She grabbed one of Kate's hands and thrust it between her legs. "Please," she begged.
Understanding and sympathetic, Kate abandoned Danni's breasts and moved further down her body, settling between spread thighs. She took her hand away and replaced it with her mouth.
"Oh, baby!" Danni groaned, her head flopping uselessly to the side.
As Kate worked, she brought a hand up to rest on Danni's stomach and felt her hand engulfed in Danni's. She loved that, as at that moment, she felt so completely connected to her. The feeling was intense and almost made her want to cry.
It didn't take long before Danni cried out, her body finally able to release, and it did, hard. The bed vibrated slightly under the intense shudder than ran through her entire being. She tugged Kate by the hand, wanting to feel her against her, even as Danni tried to come back to the land of the living.
"My god," was all she could say.
Kate grinned, quite proud of herself. "You know, I haven't done that in two and a half decades; I wasn't sure how I'd do." She lay on top of Danni, just like she used to do, cuddling in the warmth of Danni's body.
"Just like riding a bike," Danni quipped, hugging Kate to her.
Kate laughed. "A tasty one, too," she purred, rising up to deliver a scorching kiss.Danni groaned, returning the kiss with relish. After it ended, Kate tucked her head back under Danni's chin. "I can't help but feel like a lazy fat cat." Kate purred deep in her throat, making them both laugh.
