The other four
Troopers were just coming from the dining room when the B&B truck
came to a screeching halt outside. Two bodies tumbled from the truck
and ran at the speed of light right towards them. Toby's eyebrows were
buried in her hairline and a crooked grin was inching its way to her
lips. B&B looked as if they had just come through a tree shredder.
Red stripes covered most of their bodies, hair standing on end and
terrified expressions on their faces. They came to a halt before their
friends, looked at Toby, threw their hands in the air and screamed.
"MEN!" Before anyone could say anything, they ran through the lobby
screaming and took the stairs to their floor. Gavin looked to the
others and back to where the door was just closing.
"What in the Hell happened to them?"
Dustin snickered and nudged Toby. "Did ya see the leather handcuffs?" She busted out laughing and fell into Andy.
Gavin took Toby's hand and pulled her towards the elevator, the doors
opened and Bevis and Butkis came barreling out and ran out the doors to
their truck. Within minutes, magazines and posters flew out the door
and scattered across the ground. Bevis appeared in the doorway, tossed
a framed poster out of the door, and slammed it closed. "Ohh this is
bad guys," Andy pointed to the poster on the ground. "That was their
favorite porno star they threw out." The four of them went out the door
and pulled open the trucks door to see two terror-stricken women taping
up a new poster on the wall of their truck. Gavin gasped, covered her
eyes and turned into Toby's chest.
"Ohh my GODS, that is scarier than the old one!" She peeked at the
poster of a bare chested Weatherman Al Roker with a milk mustache
holding two huge donuts in his one hand, milk in the other and a bubble
asking. "Got Milk?"
After checking out of the motel with strange looks from the desk clerk
and B&B twitching as if they were having the DT's, Toby changed the
order of how they would proceed to the predicted storm sight between
Athens and Waco. The B&B truck took the lead with Gavin driving
Toby's van in the middle of the group. Toby was running the radars
while Butkis drove and Bevis gave her directions coming from Toby.
Everyone knew that if it were left up to Butkis who couldn't find her
way out of a paper bag, they would end up somewhere in New Mexico. Toby
wore a headset to keep in contact with the other two trucks, she could
hear the background voices of Andy and Dustin arguing over what color
dildo to get from some on-line toy company and a soft voice singing in
her van. With a wicked smirk covering her face, she clicked her cell
phone onto the other side of the headset and hit speed dial. She waited
and then heard the voice on the other end.
"Gavin De La Rouge."
"What are you doing Piglet?" Came a breathy voice over her phone.
Gavin shivered at the sexy voice and ran a hand across her sweaty face. "Reading all the bumper stickers on the B&B." She snorted after reading one. "Get Sucked." She saw the small tornado picture on the end of it and then the NSSL seal on the other.
"That's my plan for later tonight, mother nature and you willing."
"Ohh maybe I could re-arrange my prior appointments and fit you in." She smiled when she heard a low grumble come from her lover. "Maybe I could arrange for a quickie before mother nature claims you?"
"Ya know she is convincing in her seductive ways."
"I think I can beat her at this game. In fact, I know I can, right
now I have your boxers from this morning hanging from the rear view
Toby closed her eyes and let her head fall back, she knew all to
well the condition her boxers were in. Remembering changing clothes
before they left the motel parking lot after Gavin had gotten her all
hot and bothered by teasing her unmercifully during lunch, she released
a breath and felt her pulse race.
"Every time the wind comes through the window I can smell you, it
makes my blood boil and my nerve endings sing." She heard Toby moan and
smiled wider. "I can still feel you beneath me, our bodies sliding
together, our scents mingled and how wet you were. Are you wet now
"You're killing me here and you have no idea Piglet." She whimpered when she moved in her chair and felt her juices trickle.
"Little Gavin twitches every time I think about licking you…Gods it feels good." She moaned softly into the phone and could imagine the flushed skin of her lovers face. "How your walls close around my tongue and the soft grunts you make."
"Piglet…you're driving me nuts here…Gods…" She gasped when her clit twitched and more juices flowed forth.
"Toto, I just touched myself and I'm sooo wet just from thinking
about you. Touch yourself and tell me if your clit is as hard as mine
Toby looked over her shoulder to see what B&B were doing before
letting her hand go beneath the waistband of her nylon running shorts.
Her hips thrust when her fingers sunk into her abundant juices; a low
throaty moan erupted past her lips and brought an answering one from
"Pretend that it's my tongue caressing you, sucking your clit, taking you higher as I lick your juices…"
She jumped at the thudding sound of the phone, saw the brake lights of
the B&B flash on and then a certain Storm Trooper come running
towards her and crawl through the window to land on her lap. Toby
grabbed her hand, pulled her from the seat all the way back to their
B&B snickered, turning the truck off, they picked up their
connected game boys and began playing a WWF game. In the other truck,
Andy looked over to her wife and wiggled her eyebrows.
"Wonder if Toby knows we all heard everything they were saying?"
"Who cares," Dustin whined and pouted. "You never talk that way to me."
Andy got out of her seat and straddled her wife's thighs. "Dustball,
all I have to say to you is 'ya wanna' and your clothes fall off." She
kissed Dustin deeply, pulled back and asked. "Ya wanna?" Dustin's
T-shirt landed on the dashboard and Andy was carried to their bed.
Bevis looked into the side view mirror and saw both trucks behind them
swaying. Shaking her head, she propped up a picture of a wrinkled
90-year-old naked woman with saggy tits and no teeth on the dashboard
An hour later, Gavin rose up on one elbow and gazed down into her
lovers face. The peacefulness of the angled features made Gavin's heart
swell with love, with every passing moment in the Troopers presence,
her love deepened. "I have some decisions to make soon; I just hope I'm
doing the right thing. I know you love me but how long will you put up
with me?" She braced her chin on her fist and gazed around at where
their clothes had landed, out of the corner of her eye; she saw her
suitcase and grinned. "Ohh are you gonna kill me." She crawled over her
lover and went to her suitcase, finding what she wanted, she checked it
to make sure it was still working and went back to bed. She was shocked
when she was able to move Toby the way she wanted her and her not wake
up. Taking the control box in her hand, she adjusted the speed before
turning it on. As she lay between her lover's legs, she watched the
daisy stimulate Toby's clit and then watched as her juices flowed from
between her vibrating lips. A low moan and then a soft thrust of hips
made Gavin look to her lover's face. A small grunt then came but Toby
remained sleeping. Gavin felt her mouth water at the show of arousal
and her own juices gathering. She leaned forward and slowly licked the
crevice of its offering and growled in the back of her throat. Turning
the speed up on the daisy, she licked deeper and felt fingers tangle in
her hair and pull her closer.
"Gavin…what…ohh yeah." She opened her legs wider and thrust into her
lover's face, when the speed moved up another notch; she dug her heels
into the mattress and grunted. Gavin moved one hand down to her own
center and rubbed her aching clit while stroking her lover's center.
She knew that Toby was close from the panting and grunts coming from
her. Plunging her tongue inside of her, she felt the muscles grasp her
tongue and pull her in. A tidal wave flowed over her tongue and then
her fingers as they shared a strong climax. Panting, she lay with her
face still buried between her lover's thighs and chuckled.
"You are a…evil woman Piglet." Toby sat up and turned so that they were
nose-to-nose, capturing wet lips with her own, she kissed Gavin softly.
Pulling back, she looked into mischievous green eyes and winked. "Took
you for a woman who played with toys."
"Ohh not all the time, just when the occasion calls for it." Gavin ran
her fingers through silky dark hair and sighed. "Wish I had thought of
it earlier before you called me, you could have listened to me moaning
"I want to hear that right now." She crawled her way down her lover's
body and dragged her tongue through the short crop of blonde curls.
Gavin rolled to her back, spread her legs and moved so that they were
in a 69. Moans and groans came from them as they pleasured each other,
shudders echoed through their bodies making them twitch. When
exhaustion claimed them, they were once again wrapped in each other's
"Ohh shit Butkis, get over here!" Bevis pulled the radar up on the
screen and pointed to a strong storm front coming in off the cost; she
wrote down the information and then started the printer to get the
pictures and other information. Butkis checked the NSSL screen and saw
that they had severe warnings out for the area just west of where they
now were. "We gotta get out of here," Butkis said as she went to the
door. "I'll go tell Andy and Dustin."
"What about T and Gavin?"
Butkis shook her head. "Uhhhh ahhh, I'll let Andy go in there, T will kill me for drooling!"
"It's what?" Andy asked while pulling her pants on. "I thought we had more time than this?"
"Not anymore we don't." Butkis pointed out the windshield at the dark
clouds pouring across the sky; she pressed her hand to her ear, her
green eyes shot wide. "Bevis said that they have a touch down about ten
miles from here and it's heading this way!"
Dustin ran to the front of the truck and dropped into the driver's
seat, starting the truck she pointed to the van. "Go drive T's van so
we can get out of here." She looked to the west of where they were and
saw a red caravan heading towards where the touch down was. "Ohh SHIT,
Sawyer's heading for it!" Butkis jumped out the door, ran to the van
and climbed in. With a quick glance to the bed, she shook her head and
started to pull the van behind Bevis. Putting on the headset, she
called back to Andy for information.
"See if you can wake Toby up, I'm not sure what she wants to do?"
"Ohh let me get killed; I'll haunt you for eternity Andy!" She heard
snickers coming from them and rolled her eyes. "Just great, why not
just toss me in the zone for Gods sakes?" She grabbed Mini Me, flung
her arm sideways and heard a yelp when he landed on someone. "HEY
PERVERTS!" She yelled and heard a mumbling from the back. "Suck zone
ahead TOBY!" She knew calling her by her real name would get a rise out
"Baby what's butthead doing driving the van?" Gavin mumbled into her lover's neck.
"No idea but it can't be good." She hung onto Gavin when the van was
shoved to the side and hail started pounding on the roof. "Ohh shit,
there's a tornado near by." She slid from under Gavin and crawled on
the floor looking for her clothes. "How far out is it Butkis?"
"It's right behind us; we're heading away from the damn thing." She
fought with the steering wheel and swore when the hail slanted towards
them. "We're gonna swing around it and head towards where it touched
down, Sawyer's heading right into it."
Toby dropped into the passenger seat, grabbed another headset and clicked the radio on. "Andy what have ya got on this?"
"F4 hit right outside of Waco, 202mph winds, hail, and massive
destruction, it took out a shopping mall and is headed for another
"Can we get around it and to the town to warn them, call the local TV station to sound an alert?"
"We tried but they keep blowing us off." Toby looked up when Gavin dropped down between the seats.
"I'll call them and use my clout to talk to their news director. Will the cell phones work in this weather?"
"If not then we'll use the radio and patch it through to them." Gavin
took Toby's cell phone and got the phone number from Andy via the
radio, she waited until it was picked up on the other end.
"Hello, this is Gavin De La Rouge of WKBC Atlanta; I need to speak to
your news director." She nodded her head at her lover and waited for
the connection. "Hey Arnold, this is Gavin, we have a serious problem
here, I want you to speak to Professor Storm so she can explain the
circumstances we're facing." She handed the phone to Toby and leaned
into the seat. She watched as dark brows dipped over an aquiline nose
"Send out a tornado warning right now, an F4 is headed right towards
you, you have about ten minutes at the most to have everyone get to
safety." She leaned her head back against the seat and closed her eyes.
"Thank you baby." She reached for her lover's hand and brought it to
her lips. "I hope everyone is able to get to a safe place, because you,
they may just stand a chance."
"I didn't do this on my own Toby, just glad that I could do something."
She gripped Toby's hand tightly in hers. "Ohh my Gods look!" She
pointed to a dark cloud reaching down from the sky in front of them,
she clung to the seat when Butkis slammed on the brakes and the van
fishtailed. The wind spun the vehicles around to face the opposite
direction and push them all over the place, Butkis fought with the
wheel until she was able to get the van back up onto the road. She saw
Bevis flip the overhead spotlights on and then head towards a low area
off to their right. Following right behind her, she felt the wheels
leave the road and the van tilt dangerously to the side.
"I hate this shit T, I really hate it!" The van plunged downward
throwing all of them forward, their grunts of pain accompanied the
sound of crushing metal. "Fuck me!" Butkis groaned and wiped blood from
her eyes. "Sorry T, I'll fix your van…sonofabitch!" She yelled when
they were hit from behind when Dustin plowed into them. "I ain't fixing
"Come on we have to get out of here!" T helped Gavin to her feet and
slid the side door open, waiting for a dazed Butkis; she waved to the
others and pointed to an area where it dropped off sharply. "RUN!" They
had just dropped over the edge and huddled together when the wind
picked up and roared. Debris flew around them bouncing off ground and
flying over their huddled bodies. Dustin looked up from where she had
her face buried in her wife's back and gawked at what was spinning in
the air. She pushed on Toby and pointed.
"Holy fuck!" She grabbed Gavin by her hand and shoved Bevis to her
feet, pointing to the right of where they were, she pulled Gavin behind
her until they came to where the ground was hollowed out more and
offered them more protection. Huddled together, they watched as one of
Sawyer's trucks spun in the air and slammed to the ground where they
had been hiding. Toby covered Gavin's body with her own and prayed that
none of the flying parts reached them. A loud explosion and a wave of
intense heat washed over their bodies. Toby grunted and jerked from a
sharp pain in her upper thigh, she felt Bevis slam into her and Dustin
scream. In a matter of seconds, all was quiet except for the crackling
of fire and the buckling of steel from heat. Gavin crawled out from
under her lover and rolled her onto her back; she looked down into
clouded blue eyes and brushed her bangs back from her forehead. Feeling
Toby squeeze her hand and clench her teeth showed that she was in pain
but could handle it.
"Is every body OK?" She looked to the others and saw Dustin holding her
arm to her chest and Andy ripping her shirt apart to staunch the blood
soaking through the sleeve on her wife's upper arm.
Bevis whimpered and tried to look behind her. "Something stabbed me in my ass!"
"Don't look at me," Butkis wiped the still flowing blood from the cut
between her eyes. "Uhhmm Bevis, you have a windshield wiper blade
sticking out of your ass."
"Didn't I just say that something stabbed me in my ass?" She slapped at
Butkis when she reached to pull it out. "Don't you dare touch it!"
"I wouldn't dream of playing with your ass." She grinned.
"I know you Butthead, you'd twist the damn thing!"
"Uhhmm guys," Gavin pointed to the red trucks coming their way. "Is that the Calvary coming to help?"
Toby rolled onto her side and placed her head in her lover's lap. "Not
likely, those assholes could care less about us." She ran a hand to the
back of her thigh and felt a piece of shrapnel sticking out. "Baby,
will you look at my leg and make sure I'm not bleeding to death."
Green eyes shot wide, Gavin leaned over her lover's back and saw the
shiny piece of metal sticking from her leg. "Why didn't you tell me you
"I have no idea, maybe it's the fact that I'm still amazed that we're alive and that I'm too macho."
"I think we should get out of here and head to the nearest hospital, we
all need some stitches." Dustin got to her feet and held onto Andy for
support. "Maybe Sawyer will take us?" She burst out laughing at the
rolling eyes of her friends.
"When Hell freezes over and I grow a dick." Toby grumbled into Gavin's stomach.
Gavin shivered and shook her head. "EEWW…that's something I don't want to see."
The six of them walked to where Sawyer and his crew were trying to put
out the flames with fire extinguishers, Toby stood watching them until
Sawyer gave her a glare.
"You could have done something Storm!" He yelled at her.
"Like what catch it as it was plummeting to the ground?"
"I lost three men in that truck!" He yelled as he walked closer. "And a lot of money!"
"Is that all that matters to you Sawyer, money? Three men lost their
lives because you headed right into the tornado, it should have been
YOUR ass being sucked up."
"Fuck you Storm, I have pictures and video that you don't and I'll get
another truck and grant from the college. What will you get?"
Toby looked down into green eyes, pulled Gavin into her side and
smiled. "I have all I need." She limped towards where they hoped their
trucks still where with the help of her lover's strength. She couldn't
help but chuckle when she heard Bevis whining.
"Ohh my ass!" She let out a loud yell, turned and punched Butkis in her stomach. "That hurt you idiot!"
Gasping for breath, Butkis nodded and held the wiper out to her. "At least…ya can…sit down now."
They never made it to the hospital as they expected, the carnage that
the tornado caused was devastating. Cars, trucks, parts of houses and
other foreign objects were tossed everywhere in the small town. Finding
an ambulance, they were treated and then started helping the citizens
look for lost friends and relatives. Gavin was beside herself, she had
only seen this kind of thing while on the air. She looked around her
and saw how these people's lives would be forever changed and knew how
Toby must feel and have felt when her world was torn apart. She wiped
the tears from her eyes, placed the video camera she had been using on
its tripod and walked over to where her lover was helping lift part of
a wall that had fallen over a storm shelter door.
When they had done everything they could to help, they went over to
where the Red Cross had set up an aid station and got bottles of water
to wash the down the dust. Gavin leaned into Toby's side and rested her
face against her upper arm. "Did they even know it was coming their
way?" She asked Toby.
"No, they never heard. They had no idea that they were in danger, the
call you made to the news station helped those people but these ones
found themselves caught unprepared."
"What can we do to make sure this never happens again?"
Toby turned to her side and pulled Gavin into her arms, placing a kiss
to her forehead she sighed and shrugged her shoulders. "I don't know,
they have tornado spotters but the problem is getting through to the
news stations. They had the same problem that Andy had, they were not
taken seriously." Gavin wrapped her arms around Toby and thought of
what she could do to help.
"I have an idea, but it'll mean that I have to go back to Atlanta." She
felt a lump form in her throat at the idea of leaving Toby even for a
little while. "It may take me a while to get everything together." She
felt Toby stiffen. "I don't want to leave you…"
She felt her heart stop beating for a second, she wanted Gavin by her
side but knew that her lover had a life in Atlanta and what ever she
had planned couldn't be done here on the road. She wanted to be selfish
and ask her to stay but knew it was wrong. "Gavin, this is important to
many people, what ever you have planned could save thousands of lives."
"Will you go back with me?"
Toby dropped her head down to rest on her lover's shoulder. "I wish I
could baby, but with us out here maybe we can make a difference. We
still have the data from the turtle to go over and that has to be done
in our lab." She felt tears fill her eyes when Gavin nodded her head
and a soft sob came from her. "When we're done I could fly to Atlanta
or you could come to Oklahoma."
"Or I could just quit my job as anchor."
"No baby, you have an important job that reaches many people, I
couldn't nor wouldn't ask you to do that. We'll figure something out."
"I hate this Toby, but I promise you when I get my idea sold, I'll come
back to you." She lifted her head, pulled Toby down to her and kissed
her with every ounce of love she felt in her heart. When the kiss
ended, she looked into tear-filled eyes. "I love you Toby Storm."
Toby wiped the tears from Gavin's cheeks and hugged her close. "I love
you too Gavin, when will you leave?" She didn't want to hear the answer
but needed it all the same.
"If I leave tomorrow, I'll be back that much sooner."
The Storm Troopers and Gavin stood at the United Airlines counter in
Dallas, Gavin didn't give a damn what people thought of her as she
clung to Toby. With each second that went by, she felt her soul tear.
She knew the minute she left her lover's arms and boarded the plane to
Atlanta that she would be leaving a part of her behind. She pressed her
face into Toby's chest and let her tears flow freely. A sob tore from
her when she heard the boarding call. "I don't want to go Toby."
"I know and I don't want you to but this is important and we'll be
together soon. I promise." She stood up and held onto her lover, she
looked over to her friends and saw the tears in their eyes. Letting
Gavin go, she nodded to the Troopers and watched as they each gave
Gavin a hug. No goodbyes were exchanged among them, that was one of the
rules that they had in the small group. Gavin gave Toby one last hug
before she walked towards the Jetway door. She stopped and ran back
into Toby's arms, pulled her head down and kissed her passionately. "I
love you Toby with all my heart."
"You are my soul Gavin, I love you." She placed a gentle kiss upon her
lips, watched her walk down the Jetway, and then disappear. Dropping
her head, she covered her face and felt her friends give her a group
hug. Andy whispered into her ear and then placed a soft kiss on her
"She'll be back Toby."
"Gods I hope so." She sobbed into Andy's shoulder. "I can't live without her."
Gavin walked into the news station the next morning dressed in Levis,
T-shirt and work boots, her fellow employees gave her funny looks and
whispered behind her back. She ignored them and headed to her producers
office. She knocked and walked in to find Shelly rubbing her temples.
"Can't be that bad Shelly." She said in a low voice and dropped into the chair across from the desk.
Shelly's brown eyes shot wide and her jaw dropped. "What are you doing
back so soon, I thought you weren't coming back for another month and a
"I need a favor and you're the only person that can help me." She
rubbed her temples trying to get the headache she had to ease up.
"You're kidding me right?" Shelly said as she leaned back in her chair and took a good look at her anchor.
"Nope, I'm not kidding at all." She slid a video tape across the desk
to Shelly along with a CD. "That's from the last storm we chased, what
I saw out there with Toby and the others was something that rocked my
foundation." Shelly turned in her chair and popped the tape into the
VCR, after about two or three minutes of seeing the wreckage that the
tornado had caused, she turned with a curious expression.
"What I saw and experienced scared the living shit out of me and that
tape you're watching was a small quiet town at one time. Six people
lost there lives there because they had no warning of the tornado, I
made a call myself to a news station miles away to send out a warning
because Andy was blown off."
"And what do you need help with?"
"I want all the news stations in the areas where tornados, hurricanes
and tropical storms occur to have a special line for the storm spotters
to call. Right now, they use the same number that every nutcase calls
and they get blown off before they can say anything. You have
connections that I don't and Jerry's an asshole. If there's no money
involved then he's not doing it so I'm not even going to him."
Shelly leaned forward and rested her chin on crossed arms; she gazed
into Gavin's eyes and grinned at her. "You're different, what happened
out there besides getting scared?" Gavin blushed and looked to her
clasped hands. "Ohh Gavin what did you do?"
A small smile came to her face and grew bigger when she thought of her lover. "I sorta fell in love."
"Sorta, how do you sorta fall in love and who is she?"
"I never expected this to happen to me, Toby is the most amazing woman
I've ever met. At first I wanted nothing more than to kick the shit out
of her and then…"
"And who is this Toby, is she one to the Storm Troopers?"
"She's 'the' Storm Trooper, Professor Toby Carlisle Storm."
"You fell for an egghead!" Shelly busted out laughing and pointed at
her friend. "I just can't see it Gavin, I mean you and a professor. All
I can picture is tweed, glasses and a dour expression."
"Ohh you have no idea Shelly!" She pulled a picture from her wallet and
handed it to her. She had taken the picture of Toby one day when she
had been checking out her cameras, her lover sat on the hood of her van
looking out into space. Her hair blowing out behind her, eyes a
piercing pale blue shown brightly and set off by her dark tan and a
hint of a smile on her lips.
"She's a professor? God damn Gavin, she's gorgeous!"
"And all mine, which brings me to another problem. They keep losing their grants to some rich asshole by the name of Sawyer."
"I heard that you tossed your weight around and got them the full
amount for having you tag along." She gave Gavin a thumbs up and
grinned. "Burned Jerry's ass on that one," She thought for a few
minutes and nodded her head. "I know some people at different colleges
and at the NSSL, plus if you can get me more of these tapes I'll force
the committee to pay for them. But I want you to do something for me in
Gavin knew there had to be a catch somewhere. "What's that?"
"I want you to get your story together with this tape and put it on the air. Can you have it done by next week?"
"No problem, but what about Jeremy?"
"Don't worry about him; he's at home whining like a damn baby."
Toby leaned back in her chair and looked to the wall with all her maps
on it, they had returned to Oklahoma a couple days after Gavin had gone
back to Atlanta. She felt lost out on the road for the first time in
years, every time she looked over at Mini Me in his pink dress; she
smiled and then felt tears fill her eyes. She ached deep inside and
each time she picked up her phone to call her lover, she chickened out.
"You're such a loser T, you play with tornados but you're to chicken to
call your lover." She looked to her doorway and groaned at her friends.
They were all standing with their arms positioned to look like giant L's
"Big bad Toby Storm, tornado tangler, ass kicker and world's biggest chicken shit when it comes to the heart."
"Shud-up Dustin, you're no better. You spent two years sniffing after Andy before you spoke to her."
"Hey, I was only eighteen and…"
"A chicken shit." Andy added before she pushed everyone into their
office. "Still is one when it comes to some things," She cocked an
eyebrow at her wife. "I'm the one who has to get the tampons at the
store, Dustball here just about passes out." Bevis and Butkis exchanged
grins and nodded their heads, moving over to their desks; Bevis pulled
out a side drawer and pointed inside. Butkis reached inside and pulled
out something that would just about kill Dustin when she found out.
Heading back towards the door, B&B brushed past her and then turned.
"We're going to get coffee, anyone want anything?"
Dustin grinned at them and nodded her head. "I'll go with ya; I want
some Reese's cups and chocolate milk." She looked to her wife and Toby.
"Nothing for me, I have coffee here." Toby replied.
Andy handed her money for their stuff. "Just coffee and some kind of
junk food." When they went out the door, both Toby and Andy held back
their laughter until they were sure that Dustin was out of earshot.
"Ohh my Gods, she's gonna die!" Andy fell into her chair laughing.
"Especially after walking all over the campus with Kotex pads stuck to her back!"
Sobering, Andy drilled Toby. "So T, why won't you call Gavin, I know you miss her?"
"She's probably busy and I don't want to seem like a pest." She knew
that was a lame excuse but wasn't about to tell Andy that she didn't
know what to say to Gavin.
"For Christ sakes T give me the phone."
"Why what are you gonna do?" T pulled the phone to her chest and eyed Andy.
"I'm gonna call Gavin and tell her what an idiot you are. Now gimme the phone before I smack Mini Me."
T handed her the phone and pulled Mini Me into her arms to protect him.
She felt her heart lurch in her chest when Andy starting talking on the
"Yes this is Professor Andrea Vanson; I'd like to speak with Gavin De
La Rouge." She stuck her tongue out at Toby while she waited for Gavin
to pick up. "Oh she is who's this?"
"I'm Shelly her producer, you wouldn't happen to be one of the Storm Troopers would you?"
"Yeah I am I was trying to get a hold of Gavin to see how she was doing."
"She's busting her ass trying to get a story finished and some
thing's done with other networks, and of course she's so involved with
getting stuff done that she's forgotten to call you guys. I have
arranged with the boss here to pay you guys for any tapes you have on
the storms you chase. Will you do it?"
"Sure, how much and when do you need them?" She grinned at Toby and
punched a hand in the air. "OK, you should get them in a couple of
days." She hung up the phone, jumped from her chair and danced around
the office. "Yeah baby! Two grand for some Trooper tapes!"
Toby gave Andy a raised eyebrow. "What did you just do?"
"Oh not me, it was Gavin who did it." She dropped down on the edge of
Toby's desk. "She wasn't in but she's working on something, any idea
what that is?"
Toby shrugged her shoulders. "She wouldn't tell me, she said I would
find out once she sold her idea." She put Mini Me back on her desk and
shook her head at him. "I can't believe I've left him in a dress."
With her arms full of papers and folders, Gavin shuffled to her desk
and dropped them with a thud on top. She had been spending more time in
meetings than she ever had but she was making leeway with her idea. So
far, she had all the networks setting up extra phone lines that went
directly to the weather station and arranging for them to teach more
storm watchers. She dropped exhausted into her chair and looked at the
phone, breathing in a deep breath; she picked it up and dialed. After a
few rings, it was picked up and she lost her composure after hearing
the voice on the other end.
"Dr. Evils lair, Unibrow speaking, wanna shag?"
"You are insane Butthead!" She chuckled and then snorted when Mini Me
came over the phone with his drawn out E. "Is Toby around?"
"Nope, she's at some dumbass meeting with the department heads, ya
know where they do the tango over who gets funds and who gets fucked
with the telephone pole with great big splinters?"
"So they're still screwing around with the grants," She rubbed her
forehead and sighed. "Is Sawyer one of the assholes in the meeting?"
"Nope, but his father is there. Ya know the deal, give a lot of
money and you get a seat on the board. He's still crying about loosing one of his trucks and wants the college to replace it…hold on Andy wants ta talk to ya."
"What kinda bullshit did Butthead tell you?"
Gavin grinned when she heard a yelp in the background and then Bevis
yell at Butkis. "Just about Toby being in some meeting and Sawyer's
whining. How are you guys doing?"
"We're taking a break from suck jobs and trying to get out turtle
report finished to present to the NSSL. If we can beat Sawyer to the
punch, it'll put us in a better position for grants. What about you?"
"Well, I've threatened to pillage small villages, sell their women into
sex slavery, broke some guys nose and gotten the networks to see my way
of kicking ass." She paused while Andy laughed at her. I really need to
talk to Toby about you guys doing a documentary on Storm Chasing."
"A documentary…us! Ohh my Gods Gavin that would be great!"
"I thought so, I figured that the more people who know what you guys
do, then more businesses would be willing to cough up some funding
"She's such a chicken shit; I've tried everything but hot pokers to
get her to call you, she said and I quote, 'I don't wanna be a pest."
"Hold Mini Me for ransom, that ought to do something." She grinned at the thought of her lover and her doll.
"Hold on a minute, the chicken just walked in."
Gavin waited and then felt her heart beat rapidly at the first sound of her lover's deep sexy voice. "Al Roker fan club, ten spot for autographed pictures an extra two bucks for him to personalize."
Gavin purred over the phone and imagined Toby blushing. "What about you autographing body parts you sexy bitch?"
"Depends on what body part," Toby spun her chair away from the others and covered her heated face. "I'll do below the waist for free."
"Really and when would this be possible?"
"Uhhmm…that could be a problem, I have a full schedule for the next
month. Lots of asses to personalize with the tread of my boot. Sorry
baby." She felt her world collapsing on her with the deep sigh from her lover. "I have a conference in Tallahassee in a couple of weeks, I could fly into Atlanta."
"Ohh baby, I won't be here, I have a meeting in New York in two weeks. This is killing me Toby, I miss you."
"I miss you too; I just wish I didn't have to play the games to be able to do my job."
"I can make it a little easier if you're willing to do a documentary for my station."
Gavin explained to her about the documentary and all the things she had
been able to set in motion with the other networks. Her next plan was
to tackle the academic world. "When do they want this documentary to start?"
"I'll have to talk to Shelly about it and get back to you and I mean that literally Professor Storm."
They spoke for an hour about what they had been doing while
apart and what they had planed for the future, what hurt both of them
was that their schedules were not compatible and they didn't know when
they would be able to see each other. When they hung up, Toby brushed
the tears from her face and sat staring at the wall of her office. She
had been ignoring it for the past week but the song of Mother Nature
was calling to her. She had to go back out on the road, alone if the
others didn't want to yet. She dropped her head down and ran her
fingers through her hair.
"We need to get the tapes to Atlanta; I think we should send them by
courier." Bevis whispered in Toby's ear and squeezed her shoulders.
"They're in that box by the door."
"OK, I'll take care of it later." She continued to sit and stare at the wall while the others compiled the turtle information.
Gavin dropped her head down onto her folded arms to hide the tears
flowing down her cheeks. She hated the fact that she would be in New
York when Toby would be only a few hours away in Tallahassee. She
wished that she could cancel and then fly down to Macon to see her
lover but knew what she was doing would bring them back together
sooner. "Fucking sucks!" She sobbed out and cried harder from the ache
in her heart and soul.
"Gods you're wrecked over her aren't you?" Shelly asked from the
doorway of Gavin's office. "Why the Hell don't you take a break and go
see her, get your pipes cleaned or something." Gavin wiped her eyes
before looking over to her boss.
"I have to see this stuff through, it's important and…fuck Shelly, is it always this hard being separated?"
"You're asking the wrong person, I can't even keep house plants." She
sat on the edge of Gavin's desk and rested a hand on her shoulder. "Go
home get some rest, remember you have to be back on the air in two days
and you'll need about ten pounds of cover up on those bags under your
"I don't want to go home; I just sit there and stare at the walls like
an idiot." Leaning back in her chair, she closed her eyes. "If I keep
busy, I don't hurt as bad and I don't think of her as much."
With the box of tapes stashed in the back her van, Toby drove towards
interstate 35 at 90 mph. She was going to answer Mother Natures call if
it killed her; she just hoped that her friends didn't find her first
and do the job themselves. Looking over to Mini Me, she shook her head
and spoke to him. "I have to do this or I'll go nuts!" She passed
slower vehicles and flipped on the fuzz buster as B&B called the
radar detector. If she drove non-stop, she figured that she would make
it to the storm front in two or three days. It would have been easier
not to mention quicker to fly and then rent a truck but she didn't want
to waste any money or take a chance on the airline losing or damaging
her equipment. Sliding in a CD, she sang along with Terri Clark and
felt tears come to her eyes when Gavin's favorite song started to play.
Gavin paced the floor in front of her couch until she feared that she
had made a trench in the floor. Dropping face first into the cushions,
she screamed out her pain, frustration and anger, she had tried to get
a hold of Toby but when she called her office, Dustin said that she had
taken off a few days before and not returned yet. Rolling onto her
back, she looked at her watch and saw that she had only an hour before
she was due back at the station for the six o'clock news. She had
finished her report and would be doing a weeklong special on the Storm
Troopers. Dragging her weary body to her bedroom, she grabbed the suit
bag from the back of her bedroom door and then headed out. Twenty
minutes later, she was sitting behind the anchors desk nodding off
before airtime. She jumped in her seat when the stench of a cigar
wafted to her nose and her chair was spun to face the make-up woman.
Gavin blinked her eyes a few times and held back a chuckle.
"Ohh my Gods what happened to you?"
"I forgot about my cigar and sprayed hair spray." She ran a gnarled
fingertip across where one of her eyebrows used to be. "Damn flames
fried me; good thing is I don't have to wax for a while." Gavin's lips
twitched as she looked at the remaining eyebrow that reminded her of a
"If I could only be so lucky." She suffered the touch-ups and hairspray for her return to the airwaves.
"Ohh believe me, you are NOT lucky, I was spraying down that damn
pompadour of Lower's, rotten son of a bitch and his rug piece."
At first, her face blanched and then an evil grin crossed her face to
mirror in her green eyes. "Did you say rug as in hairpiece?"
"You got that right, damn thing cost more than my house!" The make-up
woman hobbled away puffing on her cigar and mumbling about torching
Jeremy's toupee. Gavin straightened in her chair and watched as Jeremy
hobbled out to the set, he gave her a glare and sunk down into his
"I so hoped that you would never come back!" He growled at her.
"Funny, I was thinking the same about you. No such luck though." She
turned in her chair and ignored his primping and voice exercises.
"Pompous ass wipe." She mumbled under her breath and looked up to see
Shelly waving a finger at her from the control booth. She smiled and
flipped her boss off. Cupping a hand over her ear, she heard the count
down and plastered her fake smile on her face.
"Good evening, I'm Gavin De La Rouge, welcome to the evening news." She
turned and glared at Jeremy and flipped him off after the camera moved
Toby tucked in her white shirt, adjusted her black suit jacket and
checked the shine on her black cowboy boots. Taking a deep breath, she
slid the door open on her van, picked up the box of tapes and walked
towards the front doors of the news station. She had broken every law
of the road and set new land speed records getting to Atlanta. Now to
face the Storm and see if her heart could survive. She pulled the door
open and walked up to the desk in the center of the reception room.
"Hi, I'm Professor T. Storm; I have some tapes for the news director
Shelly." The receptionist looked into the tired blue eyes and held up a
"One moment please and I'll call the control booth, they're on the air
at this moment but I know Shelly will come down to see you." Toby stood
and waited as the woman made a phone call and pointed to a row of
chairs near the wall. "Have a seat and she'll be right down to meet
with you." Toby set the box down and paced in front of the chairs, she
was too wired about seeing Gavin to sit. She turned when she heard
footsteps coming from behind her; the woman gave her a grin and held
out her hand.
"Hi I'm Shelly, Gavin's boss." She gazed into pale blue eyes and
blinked a few times. "She is one lucky woman, come on I'll take you so
you can see your girlfriend at her worst."
Toby raised an eyebrow at what Shelly had said. "She told you about us?"
"Ohh she can't hide a damn thing from me, and from the mood she's been in I know she has no idea that you were coming."
"I didn't know myself until I ended up here; it's kinda a spur of the moment thing. I hope it's OK."
"More than OK," Shelly walked into the elevator and held the door for
Toby. "So that's the tapes Gavin promised me?" She pointed to the box
Toby held under her arm.
"Yeah, they need edited though, they're rough and just used for our research."
"Ohh that's all right, I have people just sitting around doing nothing
all day." The doors opened on the floor where the news set was, Shelly
walked out and waited for Toby to join her. "You can set that box on
the desk over there and follow me. We'll hide in the background so you
can see the Evil Gavin; she's hilarious on the set." They walked into
the studio and stayed in the back where it was dark, Toby could see
Gavin sitting behind her anchors desk looking bored and her head
dropping forward as she nodded off in the middle of Jeremy's spiel.
"I can't believe her." Shelly whispered to Toby. "I told her to get some sleep before she came in today."
"So Gavin, how did it go with the Storm Trooper story that you stole
from me?" Jeremy asked and then saw that she was sleeping. "That good
huh? Well I'm sure the audience does not want to see you sleeping on
the set." He picked up a pile of papers from in front of him and hit
her over the head with them. Gavin's eyes shot open, she looked around
confused and blushed when she realized that she had fallen asleep while
on the air.
"Actually Jeremy, I had a wonderful time and I'm sure that the audience
is sleeping too after having to listen to your boring ass story." She
smirked at him and straightened out her own papers. "Ya'll can wake up
out there, I'm back and I can guarantee I'm not as boring as Jeremy."
She picked up the stick that their weatherman used and waved it at the
camera. "Now for part one of my series, as you know I was gone for a
short time and spending it with a group called the Storm Troopers." She
turned in her chair and watched the monitor showing off to her left; it
showed the Troopers standing outside their vehicles with their
equipment at the ready watching the incoming storm front. "No one has
any idea the danger these five women face while chasing storms." She
continued to explain to the viewers just what chasing a storm entailed
until her ten minutes was up. She turned back to the front and smiled
into the camera. "And now for the Sports Report." She spun the stick in
her hand, pointed it at Jeremy's ear, slid it up under his toupee and
flung the hair piece across the stage where it landed on camera number
Shelly fell back into the wall, covered her face and whimpered. "She's
gonna give me a fatal heart attack one of these days!" Toby stood there
transfixed by her lover's actions, she walked closer to the set and
watched Gavin terrorize Jeremy some more.
"Damn that thing can fly, must be all that hairspray on it! Hey throw it back here Charlie and let's see it fly again!"
Jeremy sat there with his mouth hanging open, eyes wide and his hands
covering his baldhead. He swung to look at Gavin and let out a
blood-curdling scream of "You horrible DYKE!" Lifting the arm covered
in a plastic cast over his head, he was about to swing it at Gavin when
he heard a low growl coming from among the camera's.
"I wouldn't do that if I was you." Toby growled at him and pinned him
to his chair with icy blue eyes. "I'd hate to get blood on my suit."
Gavin's green eyes swung to where the familiar voice came from and felt
her pulse speed up. She stood and shielded her eyes with a hand and
felt a bright smile come to her lips. Running around the desk, she
jerked backwards when her microphone wire almost strangled her. Pulling
it off, she ran and leapt into her lover's arms. Not caring that a
camera was still filming her, she captured Toby's lips in a heated kiss
and poured out all her emotions at once. Breaking the kiss, she looked
into tear-filled blue eyes and sobbed softly.
"I've missed you Toto." She buried her face in her lover's neck,
ignored the clapping, and yells from the studio workers. Toby held her
tightly to her body and kissed the side of her neck; she mumbled loving
words close to her ear and felt her lover sob harder.
"Come on you two; let's get you to Gavin's office where it's more
private." Shelly lead Toby with Gavin still wrapped around her body
down the hall and to Gavin's small office. "I gotta go do something
with the news before my boss kills me, nice job Gavin." She chuckled as
she closed the door behind them. "You could have waited until your
second show to do that."
"I've missed you so much Piglet," She sat down on the couch with Gavin
still clinging to her. "I had to come and see you or I was going to go
off the deep end." Leaning back, she looked into bloodshot green eyes
and offered her a small smile. "Ya know I wasn't expecting to see you
attack your co-anchor with in a few minutes of being on the air. What
will happen now, will they fire you?"
"Nope, it's what keeps the viewers watching us." She placed a tender
kiss on her lover's lips and brought their foreheads together. "I could
care less if they did fire me; I want to spend the rest of my life with
you." She pulled back and looked into the eyes that she had dreamed
about for the last week and a half. "Will you marry me Toby?"
Toby's mouth turned up at the corners, her eyes danced with surprise
and then she pushed Gavin back onto the couch and covered her body with
her own. "Can you handle me running off after a storm, hanging around
with perverts and talking to Mini Me?"
"I can handle anything but being away from you."
"OK, I guess I'll marry you then." She chuckled at the rolling of green eyes.
"Such a romantic you are Toby Storm, who knew? First thing, we're gonna
get new Trooper trucks. I want our own bathroom; I'm tired of using a
bush or running back to the B&B all the time."
Blue eyes shot wide but not because of new vehicles. "Does that mean
that you're quitting the station? You don't need to quit, we'll all
move our operation here to Atlanta."
"Toto," Gavin cupped her face between her hands. "We'll talk about this
later, now kiss me so I can get back on the air and humiliate Jeremy
some more. After all he did call me a dyke on the air." What started
out as a slow loving kiss grew deeper and lasted much longer than they
had planned on. Breaking for much needed air, they gazed lovingly into
each other's until Shelly came through the door.
"Come on Gavin, I've run everything I can to fill in for you."
Gavin snuggled into Toby's body and cursed her job. "I'll be right there, just keep you briefs from knotting."
Gavin walked on to the set and snorted at the now bald Jeremy, taking
her seat, she waved the make-up woman away. She could care less if her
hair was standing on end, she was happy and that's all that mattered.
Looking around the set, she spotted Toby standing off to the side of
the cameras and gave her a bright smile. Shelly almost fell over, she
had seen Gavin smile before but nothing could compare to this. She
looked to the tall professor and felt her heart do a back flip.
"Damn if they ain't made for each other." She did the count down and pointed to a smiling Gavin.
"Sorry about earlier, but ya know me, I just couldn't help myself," She
stuck her tongue out at Jeremy and then smiled at Toby. "I know you all
saw what happened after that and I want everyone to know that the tall
gorgeous woman is my fianc?e Professor T. Storm of the Storm Troopers."
The other Storm Troopers jumped around the living room howling their
joy. The next words out of their mouths were. "Toto's a dead woman!"
Andy dropped down onto the couch and pointed to the TV. "She could have
told us she was going to Atlanta! Just wait until she gets home, I'm
gonna kick her ass!"
Dustin waved a hand at her and then smiled at B&B. "Before or after the party, if ya get her wasted it'll be easier."
Gavin opened the door to her apartment and waited for Toby to enter
before her. Taking her hand, she led her into the kitchen and flipped
on the light. "I know it's not much but its home." She pulled the
refrigerator open, tossed Toby a Black and Tan beer, and took one for
herself. "I'd give you a tour of the place but ya pretty much saw
everything on the way to the kitchen." She leaned into Toby's body and
rested her head on her chest. "The only other rooms are the bathroom
and bedroom and you'll see that in about two minutes."
"Two minutes huh, I figured we would have already been in there." She wrapped her arms around Gavin and hugged her tightly.
"I didn't want to seem needy," She pulled out of Toby's arms and pulled
her down the short hall to her bedroom. "OK, that was a long enough
wait, I'm very needy." She took their beers, placed them on the
nightstand and pushed Toby back on the bed. "What I need is for you to
hold me." She shrugged off her suit jacket, dropped it to the floor
along with her other clothes and crawled on top of Toby. "I haven't
slept in I don't know how long and from the bags under your eyes
neither have you."
"I kept searching the bed for you every few hours." She kissed the top
of a blonde head and hugged Gavin closer to her. "Let me get out of
these uncomfortable clothes and we'll snuggle." She got up off the bed
and shook her head. "I can't believe I just said that, I never snuggled
or cuddled with anyone before you, you corrupted me." She grinned down
into tired eyes and smirked. "You're a bad influence on me Piglet."
"Good, I always wanted to be a bad influence."
Shelly paced back and forth in front of Gavin and Toby; she looked at
them and then pulled on her hair. "You can't do this Gavin!" She spoke
in a coarse whisper. "I need you here; I can assign someone else to do
"I'm going with the Troopers no matter what you say, I'll quit if I
have to." She took Toby's hand and brought it to her lips. "I belong
with Toby and the others, I'll do the filming and the editing, you
provide the machines. You can't win Shelly, and think of it this way,
you don't have to pay a crew to film this." Shelly dropped heavily into
her chair, rubbed her temples and nodded her head.
"Against my better judgment…Ohh Hell, fuck my judgment, doesn't matter
anyway. Go see the camera guys and get what you need." She held up a
finger. "You call me and let me know how everything is going."
Gavin smiled brightly at her boss. "You got it and don't worry, we'll do a good job."
Gavin was reading through a thick file as Toby drove back towards New
York, her brows drown down over her nose as she skimmed the last page
and then looked at her fianc?e's profile. "What do ya think of the
National Weather Service of Atlanta?"
"Ohh I don't know why ya asking?"
"Because I have a contract here for the Storm Troopers to work for them."
"You what, how in the world did you get that?" Toby pulled the van over
to the side of the road and then looked at Gavin in complete surprise.
"Baby, exactly what have you been up to for the last week or so?"
Gavin wiggled her eyebrows. "You mean besides fantasying about getting you naked?"
"Yeah besides that, what did you do with the other three minutes of the day?"
"Ha funny but true, I've been trying to get you guy's permanent
funding, so far I have three contracts. Two from the NSSL in Boulder
and Utah and this one here from the NWS in Atlanta, this one looks the
best and not because it's in Atlanta either. They're offer is a lot
better and they'll provide your vehicles, equipment and anything else
you need." She handed the contract to Toby and sat back in her seat. A
few minutes later, Toby looked up at her and grinned.
"I'll have ta talk to the others about this and see what they say." She
got up from her seat and leaned over. "Ever think about being an
agent?" She brought their lips together in a deep kiss that continued
for minutes. "Let me park this thing where we won't get run over."
"What are we gonna do Toto?" She asked with a low throaty purr.
"Catch up on a week of celibacy."
Toby was sitting in her office chair looking through Gavin's suitcase;
she had found a leather-shaving bag with all kinds of different sex
toys in it. She held up each one and inspected it. "Ohh Gavin you are a
wicked little thing," She held up a leather harness with a double-ended
dildo that attached to it. "Kinky too, wonder?" She put the harness on
and looked down at herself.
"Looks better with something attached to it." Gavin said with a sleep-thickened voice from their bed.
Toby raised an eyebrow at her and gave her a lopsided grin. "And what would that be?" She waved the dildo at her.
"That could be arranged ya know." She wiggled a finger at her and
watched as she struggled with the bed sheets before coming over to
straddle her lap. "Only one problem I see with using this thing."
"What's the problem, maybe I can help." She dropped her head down to
lick the hollow of her lover's throat and then nip the soft skin of her
jaw. "Gonna tell me or just moan and whimper?"
Her finesse with words was never good to begin with, but now facing
something that scared the living Hell out of her, she stumbled over
each word and blushed profusely. "Gavin, I've never…this is…I know
it's…too big." Gavin pulled back from where she was licking and nipping
soft skin to see the terror in Toby's eyes.
"You've never used anything like this before?"
"No…my experience is limited…"
Gavin smiled at her and cupped her face between her hands, pulling her
closer; she kissed her gently and mumbled against her lips. "If what
you know and do is limited, you'll be the death of me with more
knowledge." She kissed her again and brought their foreheads together
afterward. "Well take it slow and if you can't take it, we'll do
something else, OK?"
"OK, let's move back to the bed, this chair is Hell on my lower back."
She carried Gavin over to their bed, laid her down and stood taking in
every inch of her body. Just looking at her lover made her heart beat
speed up. Crawling over the top of her, she hovered and licked at a
hardened nipple. "Gods you're beautiful and all mine." One minute she
was on top, the next she was flat on her back with a tongue teasing her
nipples. Gavin still amazed her with her strength, she may be small but
she could take her down in seconds, willing or not. Arousal roared
through her body with each lick to her heated flesh, she felt her
juices flow and cover her inner thighs. Her back arched when Gavin ran
her fingers through her moisture and teased her center.
In a deep voice, Gavin whispered against her lover's chest. "I'll be as
gentle as I can Toby." Taking the smaller end of the dildo, she eased
into her lover and waited until Toby started to breathe again. "You all
"Yeah…more." She thrust her hips upward and pulled the rest inside of
her, panting; she reached to Gavin and ran her fingers through her
hair. Gavin fastened the harness around her hips and the dildo, bracing
her hands on either side of Toby's shoulders; she dropped her head down
for a hungry kiss. Moving so that she was over the top of the dildo,
she eased herself down onto it and held fast when Toby gasped out. "Let
me do all the work Toby, anytime it gets to be too much you stop me."
Gavin leaned forward and took Toby's lips in a tender kiss; they moaned
and moved slowly against each other in the ancient dance. Toby rolled
them over and lay between Gavin's opened thighs and slowly pumped into
her. Soft grunts and moans were the only noises in the van; Gavin then
gasped when Toby tilted her hips upward and hit her G-spot. She
clutched at her lover's shoulders with blunt fingernails and thrust her
hips upward into Toby. They were both on the very edge of euphoria when
sirens and a deep commanding voice filled the van.
"This is the police, come out with your hands up!"
"Don't you dare…pull out of me!" Gavin growled and wrapped her legs
around Toby's lower back. "Soooo close!" Toby thrust harder and sent
them both over the edge with loud yells that accompanied the officer's
voice. "Panting and holding onto each other for dear life, they road
out the tremors even though they were being threatened.
"Get out of the van now! Or else we're coming in!" The door slid back
and the Troopers streamed into the van to jump all over the two lovers.
"FUCKING PERVERTS!" Toby grumbled into her lover's neck and grunted
when a body crawled on top of her. "Get off us you sick bitches!"
Dustin slapped her on her ass and grinned. "I think we caught them at
the end! Damn slow ass driver you are Bevis, I told you to do 90mph!"
The bouncing on the bed and them caused Gavin's G-spot to be rubbed by
the dildo; she bit down into Toby's shoulder to hold back her scream
from another orgasm. Shudders ripped through her body and pulled on the
dildo sending Toby back over the edge. Toby buried her face in her
lover's neck and whimpered with each tendril that shot to her center.
"OK guys, Bevis and Butkis you drive the van and follow us." Andy
pulled her wife with her out the door and busted out laughing as soon
as they were outside. "When she's gets herself collected, she's gonna
kill us!" They ran back to their pick-up truck and pulled in front of
Bevis tried to get a better look at the strap-on; she looked to Butkis and asked. "Wonder if it's life-like?"
Gavin peeked out from where she was hiding and pointed to Butkis. "Tell Andy to head to Oklahoma."
Toby mumbled into her neck. "What about New York, you have a meeting there?"
"Not anymore I don't, you're more important than some dumbass meeting. Now kiss me."
Toby pulled clothes back on and stumbled to hang onto the back of the
driver's seat; she smacked both women in the backs of their heads and
growled. "How did you find us?" Butkis and Bevis grinned and slapped
hands, in unison they answered. "Lowjack baby!"
"You put a lowjack device on my van?"
"Yeah baby, gotta keep track of your mojo ass." Butkis ducked the hand
coming towards her and snickered. "We wanted to wire your boxers but
knew you'd get electrocuted." She snickered at the blush washing over
her friends face.
"Riiiight, assholes, get the other two on the radio and find the closet
restaurant so we can get something to eat and I can discuss something
with everyone." She went back to her and Gavin's bed and crawled in
beside her for a short nap until they stopped. Pulling her lover's body
close to her, she buried her face in her soft hair and drifted off to
The restaurant they stopped at was a Steak house, after two minutes of
the Troopers being in there, it was a circus. Gavin starred wide eyed
at the eating habits of the women. She had never seen a seal show
before but the Troopers could put the small mammals to shame. Croutons
flew across the table into open mouths until Dustin started doing
obscene things with carrot sticks. Bevis had cucumber slices over her
eyes pretending she was Orphan Annie, Butkis had green beans stuck up
her nose and Andy and Toby sat with their hands over their eyes trying
to ignore the others. When their food came, what each didn't like, they
traded for what they wanted, and it reminded her of lunchtime in
school. Eyeing her lover, she ran a hand up her inner thigh and moaned.
What she found there was not normal at all; she nudged her shoulder and
saw the wicked gleam and grin come to Toby's face and eyes.
"Is that all for me Toto?"
"Yeah baby, every inch of it Piglet, every inch." She leaned over to whisper in her ear. "Do I make you horney baby, do I?"
"You have nooo idea, wanna check?"
Toby threw some bills on the table, took Gavin's hand and waved to the others. "We'll be at the nearest motel."
Dustin pumped a hand in the air. "It was me and my carrot sticks!"
"Bullshit Dustball," Bevis stuck her tongue out at her. "It was that
bulge in Toby's pants." She looked at the shocked faces. "What? Ohh
come on I know I'm not the only one to see it." She grinned and shinned
her short nails on her shirt. "You guys aren't as observant as I
They made it back to Oklahoma and to the large house that the Troopers
rented. Gavin looked up at the house and whistled she couldn't picture
them in a place like this but for some reason she knew that they all
lived together, so where better.
"This is home for a while," Toby grinned. "Now we'll have to find
someplace in Atlanta." She leaned over and kissed her lover. "Let's get
inside, I really need a shower."
Gavin looked around Toby's bedroom and snorted, she had a poster of
Mini Me on her wall and Dr. Evil and Mini Me on a motorized bike
sitting on a shelf. "Funny, I pictured you to have a poster of Tomb
Raider or Xena on the wall across from your bed."
"Nope," She pointed to the other wall to a framed picture of Miss
Parker from the Pretender. "I like her because she's such a bitch."
Gavin stepped into her arms and looked up at her with a cocked eyebrow.
"Where do I fit into the bitch type?"
"You don't, you're just a wickedly evil anchor that terrorizes the cast and crew."
"We are sooo screwed," Dustin sighed. "What theme song does Georgia have?"
"Who cares, we get new trucks and toys!" Butkis jumped up and down and
fell over the foot Dustin threw out in front of her. "Wonder if they'll
let us paint the weather God Big Al Roker on the side?" She crawled
across the floor and went to look for Bevis.
"Knowing those two, Al will be dressed in his raincoat, fedora and
flashing drivers." Andy pulled Dustin from where she was sitting on the
couch to her feet. "Come on Dustball, it's your turn to do some
Gavin rolled over on top of her sleeping lover and looked at the alarm
clock on the nightstand, it was just now six o'clock in the morning and
she couldn't figure out why she was up so early. Nuzzling her face
against Toby's neck, she inhaled her scent and sighed.
"What are you doing awake Piglet?" Came Toby's sleep thickened voice.
"Hungry, my stomachs growling loud enough to wake all of Oklahoma."
"Can't have that, let's go to the kitchen from Hell and see what we have in the refrigerator."
"Kitchen from Hell?"
"Ohh you'll see what I mean if the others are down there." She crawled
from bed and handed Gavin her robe and pulled boxers and a T-shirt on.
"Hey why do I have your robe and you're dressed?" She pulled the sash closed and looked down to see a large expanse of flesh.
"So I can look down the front and drool." She quickly kissed her lover
and pulled her from their bedroom. When they got to the kitchen, Gavin
looked around the scene of complete chaos; she had never seen anything
like it in all her life. The counter tops were covered in flour,
eggshells lay on the stove, pots and pans littered the sink and all the
counter tops, cereal boxes over turned, and milk splattered on the
kitchen table. Amongst the mess were Dustin, Butkis and Bevis.
"This is worse than Hell baby," Gavin gripped her hand and pointed to
the three flour covered culprits sitting at the table. "Those are demon
Spawn thrown out of Hell!" She pulled away from her lover and started
looking for cleaning supplies, after finding them; she tossed them to
the three Troopers. "You WILL clean up this mess and stay away from the
kitchen from now on." The Troopers mouths fell open and eyes turned to
the laughing coming from the doorway.
"Ain't funny Andy." Dustin whined and started cleaning off the kitchen table. Bevis and Butkis slapped hands and grinned.
"Knew it would work one of these days." Bevis mumbled and started
sweeping the floor while Butkis started cleaning up the area around the
stove and sink.
"I tried to do something with this bunch a long time ago but it's like
being in a daycare center." Andy said and started the coffee maker.
"The worst one belongs to you Gavin; Toby would eat nuked hot dogs
every morning if I let her."
"Hey they're easy to make and I don't make too big of a mess," She held
open a garbage bag for Dustin and snorted. "Except for when I blow them
up that is."
With the kitchen cleaned and the Troopers sent out with the exception
of Andy, Gavin made a real breakfast for everyone, she liked to cook
and found the huge kitchen comfortable and easy to work in. What she
really liked was that the stove was set in an island and had its own
smaller sink and work area. Cleaning up the dishes from breakfast, she
left the kitchen and found Toby sound asleep on the couch; she looked
over her shoulder and grinned at Andy.
"Is she a couch potato when she's home?"
"Toby a couch potato? That's not the same woman I've known most of my
life, that's an alien transplant." She waved to Gavin and pointed to a
sun porch. "Let's go hide out here for a while, I want to talk about
you two not telling us about getting hitched." Gavin rolled her eyes
and groaned, she knew that she would be cornered by one of them, she
was glad it was Andy and not Dustin.
After drinking a pot of coffee and talking about everything under the
sun, Andy grabbed Gavin's hand and pulled her to her feet. "Come on,
we're going ring shopping."
"But I don't even know what size Toby takes." She jogged after Andy and struggled with the robes hem.
"Don't worry about it, I know what size she takes and I know just the jewelry store to go to."
Toby let out a gust of breath when Dustin sat on her stomach and held
her nose closed, she hated when she became a victim. Slapping at her
friends hands, she opened her eyes and glared.
"Won't work on me, remember I'm the reason you developed that look. Now get your lazy ass up, we're all going ring shopping."
"All means exactly who?"
"You, me and B&B, hey that rhymes!"
"You're an idiot Dustball, where's Gavin and Andy?"
"They left about an hour ago, something about buying out all the stores at the mall." All Toby could do was grin like an idiot.
"Gods are we lucky or what, I know I couldn't handle another shopping spree with them."
"Yeah but we got dumb and dumber with us."
"But they'll be in all the toy stores and away from us."
Gavin opened the small blue velvet box and gazed with tear-filled eyes
at the ring she had bought for Toby. It was black onyx with a solid
gold inlay that wrapped the band; it reminded her of the two of them,
how well they fit together like light and dark. Closing the box, she
kissed the top and put it back in her pocket.
"It's beautiful Gavin, you have excellent taste in jewelry, and maybe you can rub some of that off on Dustin."
"Is she that bad?"
"Ohh her idea of jewelry is matching watches, if I didn't fold our
clothes, she'd be wearing two different color stripes on her socks."
She wrapped an arm around Gavin and propelled her to one of her
favorite stores. "Now for some mood making items, I just love this
store." Gavin could smell the scent of candles and other things coming
to her nose as they got closer to the specialty store. "Some candles a
little wine and you're all set."
Toby and Dustin looked into the glass-covered jewelry cases; they had
made two trips around the store and still didn't see anything that Toby
liked. She watched as a woman placed a new tray inside the case and
looked up at her.
"Here's some new ones that we just finished making." She smiled and
walked over to help another customer. Toby walked over to the case and
knew she had found the perfect ring for Gavin. Waiting for the woman to
finish with the other customer, she waved her over.
"Can I see that tray please?" She looked at the sizes and pulled out a
size 7, slipping it on her pinky she showed it to Dustin. "What do you
"Perfect, is that the right size?"
Toby examined her finger and nodded her head. "Yep, it's the one," She
handed it back to the woman and nodded. "I'll take that one there."
They met up with B&B coming out of Spencer's Gifts and knew that they were in for a wild time.
"What did you guys get?" Toby tried peeking in their bags.
"Nunya!" Bevis said and took off running from her with Butkis following.
"That was a sure sign that we're all in big trouble when we get home."
Dustin nodded her head and stuck her hand in Toby's pocket for the
"Hey T. would ya help me pick something out for Andy, our anniversary
is in a couple of days and my taste sucks big time. I wanna get her a
Toby smiled and wrapped an arm around Dustin's neck and took her back
to the jewelry store. "I saw the perfect ring you can get her, solid
gold, diamonds all around the band and a matching diamond ring, and you
can afford it."
When they came out of the jewelry store for the second time, Dustin was
whimpering and wiping tears from her cheeks. "She's gonna kill me Toby!"
"No she won't, at least not until she sees the Visa bill."
"When that happens, I'm sleeping with you and Gavin."
Gavin rushed around their bedroom lighting candles and getting the
music programmed on the stereo, all she needed was for her lover to
come home and all would be perfect. She had dressed in a silk robe with
nothing else but a spray of Obsession. She sat on the edge of the bed
and looked over to where Mini Me stood on their dresser, she couldn't
help but chuckle. She had caught B&B sneaking out of their bedroom
earlier and knew from the grins on their faces that they had been up to
no good. She couldn't wait until Toby came in and saw her baby.
"Piglet! Where are you?" Toby yelled as she came down the hall towards
their bedroom, she shoved her hands in her pockets to keep them from
shaking with nervousness but didn't know what to do with her quaking
legs. She walked into the candle lit room and smiled at her lover. "You
trying to romance me Piglet?"
"Is it working?" She lay on her side with the robe flipped back over
her legs to show a good portion of her thigh. "If not, we can call the
others in and have a s?ance."
"Uuhhmm yep it's working," She looked around the room and moaned when
she saw Mini Me. "Ohh my Gods, what happened to my baby?" She walked
closer and saw that he was now dressed in a wedding gown and his
partner was Yoda dressed in a black tux. "This is just…"
"A B&B special, I'm still trying to figure out which one is me?"
Toby turned and gave her a lopsided grin. "Don't go there Toto or
you'll be on the couch."
"Ohh I don't like sleeping there, those morons pick on me." She dropped
to her knees and crawled across the floor to stop beside the bed,
reaching inside her pocket; she pulled the box out and sat it on the
edge of the bed. "Now ya know I really suck at the word thing, I want
to show you that I want to…I mean that I…ohh Hell, I bought this for
you, I hope you like it." She pushed the box over to Gavin and watched
with pleading eyes. "Go ahead and open it baby." Gavin picked up the
small box and looked into her lover's eyes before she opened it, tears
formed and trailed down her cheeks when she saw the ring inside. Taking
it out, she held it up and then handed it to Toby.
"It's beautiful Toby." She wiped her eyes and held out her hand to let
Toby slip it on her finger. She laced her fingers with her lover's and
pulled her closer. "I love you Toby, with all my heart." She sealed her
words with a passionate kiss and then pulled back to look into misty
blue eyes. "I have something for you to baby." She pulled the ring box
from under her pillow and handed it to Toby. "We went ring shopping
today, go ahead and open it."
Toby opened the box and gasped, it was an exact match to the ring that
she had bought for Gavin. "This is unbelievable, they match." She
handed the ring to Gavin and let her slip it on her finger. "The fates
work in mysterious ways, Love you baby." She crawled up onto the bed
and covered Gavin with her body; they lay wrapped in each other's arms
and jumped when they heard Andy let out a scream.
"What are they doing in there?" Gavin asked.
"Ohh I think Dustball just gave Andy her new ring, I helped her pick it
out today. Their twentieth anniversary is in a couple of days."
One thing the house was not was silent that night, the noises coming
from two bedrooms drove B&B down to the basement to play pool. In
the late morning hours, they were found sound asleep on the floor with
empty potato chip bags and milk jugs around them. Dustin nudged Bevis
with her foot and jumped at the rumpled sight of her friend. "Gods
you're scary, Gavin's making breakfast and then we're going to pick up
our new trucks. Wake sleeping ugly up." She shuddered and ran up the
steps to the safety of the kitchen.
After breakfast, they went to where they would pick up their new trucks
that the Atlanta NWS had provided for them. Toby stood with her
eyebrows buried in her bangs and her jaw hanging open.
"Gavin, they're purple!" Gavin stepped beside her, tilted her head and nodded.
"Yep, they sure are Toto, could be worse."
Toby covered her face and peeked from between her fingers. "Yeah how?"
"They could be hot pink." She wrapped her arm around Toby's waist and
leaned into her. "I think it's your color baby, we could get purple
T-shirts with a tornado on the front and Mini Me on the back in his
"Riiiiight and I want ya ta wear one on the air for publicity."
Gavin went up on her toes and kissed her wife's neck. "Anything for you Toto."
Andy came jogging over and poked Toby in her chest. "You Toby Storm are
the most…" She pulled Toby's head down and kissed her hard on the lips.
"Thank you for helping Dustball, they're beautiful." She showed her
rings to Gavin and then gave her a tight hug before running back to her
Toby looked to Andy's retreating back and then down to her grinning
wife. "Guess we did good picking out her ring, and we won't have
Dustball sleeping with us."
"Ohh you two would have been on the couch that's a sure bet. Come on lets see what kinda toys are stashed inside your truck."
"Not the kind of toys we've had in the van lately." Toby mumbled and
followed Gavin inside the purple 20 foot fifth wheel trailer that was
attached to the 2002 4x4 Ford F350 Dually four-door truck. The trailer
was fully loaded with everything they would need to live in, including
its own gas-powered generator. The other trucks were Chevy Kodiak
Renegade Toterhome's with fully equipped stacker trailers. Toby pulled
Gavin down onto the large bed and kissed her tenderly.
"Its perfect baby, everything we need and then some for the road is right here and it's all because of you."
"I can't take all the credit Toby, it was the Troopers reputation that
got you the job, I just sold that to the highest bidder. Now we can go
out and kick Sawyer's ass!"
Three days later they were chasing the next storm front coming in off
the Texas coast, they had mounted on of the video cameras that Gavin
had brought with her to the top of their truck and were operating it by
remote control from inside the cab. Toby had cut the trailer loose and
was following in tornado while Andy worked inside the trailer to give
them up to date information on the wind velocity and path that it would
"Look at that sky Gavin," Toby pointed towards the west at the
different colors of the sky. "I've never seen that color of pink before
with the orange cutting through." Gavin leaned across from her seat and
braced a hand on Toby's thigh, looking up at the colors; she let her
eyes trail further to the west and gasped at what she saw.
"Toto there's a funnel coming down out there and worse, Sawyer's
heading right for it!" She pointed to the convoy of red trucks and
grabbed the radio microphone. "Andy what direction is that funnel going
"You guys get the Hell out of there! It's picked up speed and is
turning for the north east; I'll try and get Sawyer out of there."
"Ohh shit Toto, what are we gonna do?" She pulled her seat belt tighter and watched Toby do the same.
"We're getting the Hell outta here." She slammed the brakes on, spun
the wheel and took them off the road they had been traveling to go in
the opposite direction of the tornado. Grabbing the mic, she switched
over to the same frequency that Sawyer was on. "Sawyer get out of there
now! It's coming in right over the top of you!
"Go to Hell Storm, this is mine!"
"You egotistical asshole! You're gonna get sucked!"
"I know where it's going and it's you that's gonna get sucked up in your brand new truck!"
"That ignorant asshole!" She said under her breath and tried a
different strategy. "Barry I know you can hear me, get out of there!"
She could hear Barry trying to convince his boss that she was right and
to let him get them out of the tornados path. She dropped her head when
Sawyer told him that he was the boss and to do as he said. "For Gods
sakes Barry, why would I lie to you, now get out of there NOW!"
Stopping the truck, they watched from the rear window through the
pouring rain as the tornado dropped down right over the top of the
convoy and sucked them up. The trucks spiraled in the twister and
flipped them every which way; the front truck that contained Sawyer and
Barry was thrown out and spun in the air until it crashed into the
ground in a fiery cloud. Toby dropped her head onto the steering wheel
and cussed his arrogance. "Stupid fucker just killed all his people."
Gavin brushed dark hair away from Toby's cheek.
"It's his fault no one else's, you tried Toby."
"Yeah I know but it's still hard to take." She leaned back in her seat
and checked the sky. "We have to get out of here." The winds rocked the
truck, tossed leaves and grass all over the windshield and shoved the
truck sideways. "Son of a bitch!" Toby struggled with the steering
wheel until she was able to gain control and move them towards a barn
and farmhouse. Fence posts and barbed wire shot across in front of them
and bounced off the hood.
"Toby over there near the barn…see that rock formation?" Toby took off
across the open field and pulled the truck into what turned out to be a
cave, getting out of the truck; she pulled a turtle pack from the back
seat and went to the mouth of the cave. Gavin swore loud enough for the
next county to hear and scrambled out of the drivers side. She was just
about to go after Toby when she saw her wife running back towards her.
"Come on let's get further back inside the cave."
"What about the turtle pack?"
"If it goes it goes, I don't really care." She grabbed Gavin's hand and
pulled her towards the back of the cave to where it dropped off to a
smaller tunnel. "I'm not doing any more asinine stunts." She dropped to
the sand floor and pulled Gavin down between her legs. "I'll think of
some other way to get the information besides getting risking my life."
Hugging Gavin tight to her, she kissed her lips tenderly and gazed into
"No more trying to get sucked up into tornados?"
"Nope, just being in the bedroom with you is dangerous enough." The
howling wind drowned out their conversation, debris rained down on them
and a small dust devil formed inside the cave. Toby held Gavin tighter
and blocked the opening with her back. Minutes went by before the noise
died down; and then the radio in the truck drew their attention.
"Toby, Gavin where are you guys?" Came Andy's worried voice over the radio. "Come on don't do this!"
"Guess we better answer her before she has the National Guard searching
for us." Gavin untangled herself from Toby's arms and grabbed the
microphone through the window. "We're OK Andy, but Sawyer and his crew
are all gone, contact someone about that will ya."
"Will do, now where are you guys and we'll come and meet up."
"Uhhmm…we're in a cave by a farm, then again there may not be a farm there anymore."
"Andy, you guys stay put, we'll come find you. Who can miss big purple
trucks right?" Toby kissed Gavin's neck and opened the door for her.
"Let's go find the Troopers and see if they got any feed back from
Gavin snuck around the campsite filming the Storm Troopers, she had
shot twelve tapes for the documentary and would finish it up with a
dozen more, the last tape being them at home after the chase. She knew
that she would be spending a lot of time in the edit room to lessen the
shots of Toby. She just couldn't help herself; the camera loved her
almost as much as she did. She knew that the audience would be crying
over the antics of the five women. They were more like a comedy act
than storm chasers. What she was glad she got on tape was Bevis trying
to roast a jar of marshmallow cr?me over the fire. When the label
caught fire, she flung it up in the air, when it came down, it smashed
and threw marshmallow all over everyone. After that, it was a race for
her very life; everyone came back with huge smiles on their faces but
no Bevis. An hour later she came back looking like she had been rolled
in mud and for after effects, leaves. Gavin was thankful that they all
now had their own showers and didn't have to use B&B's.
Three weeks Gavin spent in Toby's office editing the documentary, her
eyes were bloodshot, her shoulders ached and she swore that she was
three inches shorter do to walking slumped over. A low moan rumbled
past her lips when she felt strong fingers digging into her tired
aching shoulders. "I'll give ya a dollar if ya do that for the next
"Hey, I'm not cheap, easy yes but not cheap." Toby spun the chair
around and kissed soft lips. "Come on I have a nice hot bath ready for
ya, it'll help get the kinks out."
"You joining me, I could use my back scrubbed, rubbed and anything else
you can think of." She wrapped her arms and legs around Toby and hung
on as she carried her to their bathroom.
"I was thinking of a better way to relax you." She whispered against her lips before taking them in a deep kiss.
After staying in the bathtub until the water became icy, they wandered downstairs to the living room and froze in their steps.
"What in the Hell are you guys doing?" Gavin asked Bevis, Butkis and Dustin.
"We're playing Gorton fisherman and it's your fault for playing little
kinky mermaids." Dustin pushed back her rain hat and pointed to the wet
spots on the ceiling.
"Yeah all your fault Toto!" Butkis wiggled her huge yellow boots with
ducks all over them. "Look at poor Bevis, her hair is worse than it
usually is." Bevis pulled her rain hat off to show streaks of white
plaster from the ceiling. Gavin tilted her head sideways and gave Bevis
a lopsided grin.
"It does something for ya Bevis, adds character or something." She felt
Toby nudge her and smirked. "Are you guys ready to go to Atlanta and
look for a new house?" Toby leaned down to her ear and whispered.
"Are you saying that we're all gonna live together?"
"Of course I am," She turned into Toby's arms and kissed her gently.
"I've never had sisters or a big family; besides, the Storm Troopers
couldn't live without each other." She turned to see them being herded
from the living room by Andy. "She's like their mother isn't she?"
"Yep, that's Andy for ya; she breaks up the fights and does the grounding."
The real-estate agent was pulling her hair out after the first five
houses she had shown the Storm Troopers. She swore that if she sold
them a house she was going to retire, she couldn't take anymore
full-grown women running up and down stairs and sliding down banisters.
Dropping onto a wooden crate, she kicked off her high heels, pulled up
her sagging hose, and whimpered at the numerous runs in the expensive
Gavin pulled Toby out onto the back deck of the large house and looked
out at the open field and trees. "Well baby what do you think?"
"I like it, I think it's perfect," Pulling Gavin into her arms, she
kissed the side of her neck. "Now to see what the others think, that is
if we can get them out of the field."
"I hope they like it, I think our real-estate agent is close to a nervous breakdown."
Toby placed her fingers in her mouth and let out a loud shrilling
whistle. The Troopers stopped chasing each other and looked towards
them. Four heads nodded and arms shot up in the air with approval.
"Thank the Gods; let's go tell the agent the happy news." Toby hugged
Gavin tightly to her and kissed her passionately. "Love you Piglet."
"Love you too Toto, let's go sign the next 30 years away."
Gavin looked at the packed Storm Trooper trucks and sighed, she thought
that the five women owned more than what they had. She had no idea that
they rented the house furnished with the exception of their bedroom
sets, stereo, TV equipment, and the stuff from the office and Trooper
gear. They had moved her furniture into the new house and to put it
lightly, it was Spartan. "Toto we are going to have to do some serious
furniture shopping." Toby's eyes shot wide and she looked for a place
to hide, she didn't want to be any where near a furniture store or any
other with her shopaholic wife.
"Please don't make me go, I'll do anything!" She dropped to her knees
and hugged Gavin around her thighs. Gavin ran her fingers through her
long dark hair and chuckled.
"Me and Andy will go shopping if you watch the kids." Toby lifted her T-shirt and kissed her stomach.
"Thanks baby, I'll get them some smoors stuff and that'll keep them occupied for hours."
"In the meantime, maybe you guys can get your lab set up."
"I don't even want to think of doing that because once we're done we have to start on the reports from our last Turtle."
"Toto, you guys got it easy, I have to present the documentary to
Shelly and the other yahoos tonight. This will be my first shot at
being a documentary maker."
"Don't worry baby, you did a great job on it, you couldn't go wrong filming my stoic cast iron bitch persona."
"Not full of yourself are ya Toto, anyway, I think the scene of you in
the shower will be a big winner for me." Laughing at the shocked look
on her wife's face, she kissed her forehead. "Don't worry; I put black
stripes over all the vital areas."
"Gee thanks baby, I'll remember that when I develop the shots of you I took."
Gavin sat at the large conference table waiting for the board of
directors and the other decision makers from the news studio to join
her. She prayed that what she had put together was what they were
looking for. Dropping her head down on folded arms, she sighed and
tried to keep her feet from tapping nervously on the carpeted floor.
"There you are Gavin," Shelly dropped into the chair next to her. "I've
been searching for the last 30 minutes for you." She looked at her
small anchor and gripped her shoulder. "Don't worry; I have this
feeling that what you put together will be great."
"I sure hope so; I never dreamed it would be so hard to cut down two
dozen tapes into an hour documentary. Especially when there is so much
to tell to the viewers."
Shelly smiled at her and leaned in close to her. "Ya never know Gavin; maybe you'll get to do more on your Storm Troopers."
Three quarters of the way through the showing of the documentary, Gavin
felt her heart stop when the tape was turned off. The board of
directors turned their heads and gazed at her pale complexion. "I must
say Gavin; I have never before seen anything like this before in all of
my 32 years with the News business." The head of the board said to her
and then smiled. "What you did was make the Troopers human, you showed
their faults, insecurities and professionalism all at one time or
another. In addition, those two screwballs that you refer to as B&B
will have the viewers rolling on the floor and the men will be drooling
over Professor T. Storm." She blushed at the thought of how she drooled
over her wife. "You Gavin are one lucky woman."
Toby was not prepared for the hurdling little blonde tornado that
knocked her to their bedroom floor and kissed her until she was nearly
unconscious. Gasping for breath, she looked into her wife's smiling
face with confusion. "What was that for baby, not that I'm complaining
"They loved the documentary and want me to do others with you guys as the topic!"
Toby gave Gavin one of her bright smiles that always made her heart
stop in her chest. "I'm so proud of you Gavin; I knew you did a great
job. But what about you and your anchor job?"
"I still have that, but I'll be taking the time off to do the
documentaries, for right now, I'm on vacation until the showing. Any
ideas on what we could do?"
"Yeah baby!" Toby said and rolled over on top of her wife. "Shag a lot!"
Months later, the morning newspaper was being fought over in the large
kitchen, even though the Troopers had all been at the awards banquet
the night before, they wanted to see the picture on the front page.
With Toby dressed in her black suit and powder blue silk shirt and
Gavin in a dove grey suit and cream-colored silk blouse, no one could
miss the other four in their purple T-shirts with Storm Troopers across
the front in silver, standing squeezed together with the couple.
Butkis grinned and slapped hands with the others. "We look damn good; don't know about the other two."
Dustin looked at the picture and snorted. "Where's you hand Bevis, I can't see it?" She pointed to the picture.
"Why do you think Gavin was grinning like that, I grabbed her ass." She
snorted and ran from the kitchen when Toby walked in with Gavin.
"She's a lying sack of shit," Toby growled. "She grabbed my ass!"
Butkis and Dustin looked to each other with worried expressions.
"Then who did we grab?" Dustin asked in a low whisper. Andy chuckled and pointed to the doorway.
"One of you grabbed my ass and the other got Bevis, I thought she was gonna have a grin on her face for eternity."
Gavin dropped down at the kitchen table and cocked an eyebrow at Toby.
"You guys got lucky with only being groped, I was sure everyone saw my
bra straps shoot around the front of me, some nimble fingers popped the
clasp before the picture was snapped. I almost dropped the damn
Toby wiggled the fingers of her left hand at her. "Gotta keep them in good working order."
"Hope they're in good shape for our next assignment in California; I need a good steady hand for the camera."
Everyone looked at Gavin and started singing.
We've been on the run
Driving in the sun
Looking out for #1
California here we come
Right back where we started from
Hustlers grab your guns
Your shadow weighs a ton
Driving down the 101
California here we come
Right back where we started from
Here we come!
On the stereo
Listen as we go
Nothing's gonna stop me now
California here we come
Right back where we started from
Pedal to the floor
Thinkin' of the roar
Gotta get us to the show
California here we come
Right back where we started from California! Here we come!
"Just great, I get to hear that song all three thousand miles to the
sunny state!" Gavin covered her ears and dropped her head onto the
Toby kneeled down in front of her and ran her hands up the insides of
her thighs. "Look at it this way baby, there's a lot of places to pull
over on our way to California." Gavin got up from her chair and pulled
Toby behind her.
"Why wait for that when we have a nice big bed upstairs."
The Troopers watched as they left the kitchen and a flustered Bevis
