Kristen was mesmerized by the beauty of the small island, there was such a peaceful feel in the air. 'Just what I need to clear my thoughts, Oh!!! I love these hammocks!!!' She placed her things beside a hammock and hopped in, the petite writer had been fighting with herself, trying to keep from thinking about the dark haired woman but she had failed.
' What is it with you O'Rourke? What
makes her so special that you can't stop thinking about her? ' The internal
voice from Kristen's head choose that moment to show up.
' Maybe it's because she is a beautiful and intelligent woman who hasn't fallen at your feet like everybody else? '
" So, you're back how good!! " Kris's voice was filled with irony.
' You don't have to be sarcastic with me Kris, I'm part of you remember? ' Kris always fought her inner voice but this time she felt like she needed it.
" I can't understand why I'm so
taken with her, I feel like I've known her all my life, it's a strange
'Maybe you have met her in another life.'
" I don't think so!! And I don't want to spend the day thinking about her. I want to relax and think about more pleasurable things " Kris was resolved to forgetting everything about the accountant.
' Like she isn't pleasurable enough.' The
inner voice couldn't let this opportunity go with out making a comment.
" Arg!!! Don't start with that, it doesn't do me any good. Just go and leave me alone okay? "
' I'll leave but don't start calling when you're in need again, I have my pride you know.'
With that the voice was gone and Kris decided to enjoy the warmth of the sun and the caress of the breeze. She closed her eyes and tried to relax listening to the sound of the crashing waves on the white sandy shore.
Jenn was somewhat disappointed when she didn't run into the petite author that morning, although, it was her who had decided not to see her.
' I'm an idiot; one moment I don't want to see her, the next I'm regretting my own decision.'
The tall accountant signed herself on the passenger list to the island on the eleven o'clock shuttle and decided to check out the gym to get an idea of what she could do to burn the extra energy she seemed to be accumulating since she had got there.
' Wow! This is pretty neat; I bet I can do anything I want here.' Jenn was amazed at the immense space dedicated to the weight area and the completeness of the machinery for cardiovascular workout. All the machines faced the glass with the pool view while the other side had the view of Palomino Island and it's white sand, which reminded Jenn that the time to take the boat had come. She had to use the gym soon but for now a good run on the beach would help clear her thoughts.
Kristen was enjoying the warm breeze of the morning as she tried to relax a little, but her mind was in overdrive, thinking about several things at the same time. She even had to open her agenda to write down some ideas that came to mind while she was relaxing on the hammock. More than once the petite writer had to remind herself that she was not to think about the tall dark haired beauty she'd met the night before.
' O'Rourke you must be crazy to keep
thinking about her, don't you see that she didn't want to have breakfast with
you? That's proof enough to say she doesn't want to have anything to do with
you, maybe you're losing your charm. '
Kristen's brows drew together under gold bangs at that last remark.
" I'm not! "
" I'm not! And I'm not going to
argue about this while I'm on vacation. I have all the intentions of enjoying
this vacation. "
' Ok I'll leave you alone for the rest
of the day, I promise. But you'll be calling me soon enough I can feel it. '
" Just go! "
Jenn arrived on the island and decided
that a run on the beach was in order to clear her thoughts. Marge's words were
still inside her head, and her mind was in turmoil; she always felt better after
a good run. The battle with herself began at the same time as her run.
" Okay JJ, what we have here. You
of all people get the chance to meet Kristen and now you're playing hard to get?
C'mon give the woman a break maybe the rumors are only that."
"And what if they're true?"
" So, you're scared of her?"
" Of course not!"
" Then what the hell keeps you
from spending time with her?"
Jenn continued running and took a deep
breath before giving the answer to that question.
" The hell if I know. "
" You prefer to play hide and
seek with your favorite author in the whole wide world and after the time is
over you are going to regret your actions for the rest of your life. Very wise
" Don't call me that, I hate it!!!
And no, I'm not going to waste my time fighting over this, I'm going to enjoy
the time with Kristen while it lasts after all, she might be gone by tomorrow.
It's not like we are going to keep in touch after the convention ends."
" This would be the best moment
to prove it JJ. Look who's on that hammock."
Jenn was mesmerized at the sight before
her eyes. There she was, Kristen O'Rourke in all her beautiful glory, napping in
a hammock, oblivious to the world.
" She looks so fragile lying there." Thought Jenn as she stopped a few feet away from the author and began walking towards her.
Kristen felt the hairs on the back of her
neck rise and was sure someone was watching her. But what surprised her the
most, was that she knew who it was before actually seeing her. A sense of deja
vu left the author feeling dizzy, she shook her head as to clear her mind. When
sleepy green eyes finally opened, they were captured by shy blue orbs.
" Hi! " Was all Kris could say. ' Great start oh! Big writer couldn't you be a little more eloquent?'
" I told you to go away! "
Jenn was feeling nervous and tried to say
something to ease the awkwardness of the moment; the author looked like she was
in some kind of distress.
" Hello, how are you feeling this
morning? " Jenn felt good that she had finally got her voice back.
" Oh! Much better thank you; nothing like a good night's sleep and an exquisite breakfast to make me a happy camper again. "
Kristen's smile was so brilliant, Jenn
couldn't take her eyes off her. At the mention of breakfast Jenn felt guilty for
not showing up in the dining room that morning. She felt the need to apologize
but didn't know how to, she wasn't used to apologizing, so instead she said.
" So, I take it you enjoyed your
breakfast this morning?" Jenn moved until she was completely in front of
the petite blonde.
" Oh! Yeah, it was good, weird but
good. " Kris smiled at the memory of her breakfast that morning.
" What do you mean by weird? "
Jenn was curious.
" It's nothing really, I was
enjoying a perfect omelet for breakfast when all of the sudden a woman appeared
and began taking pictures of me and when I asked her who she was the only thing
she said was that she wanted to have pictures of my face to put me naked on her
website." Kris smiled at the confused look on Jenn's face.
" You're finding this funny? Did you
call security or someone to help you? " Jenn was visibly angry.
" Oh it's nothing really, I was about to call for help when she said that I was on some kind of hidden camera show and asked me to wave for the camera. It was so funny, they got me fair and square. " The author finished, between giggles.
" Then she joined me for breakfast and we talked about her job here and how funny people react to the jokes sometimes. "
Kristen was all smiles while she talked about this and that was proof enough to Jenn of the famous good sense of humor of Kristen O'Rourke. Then her inner battle began again at the thought of someone else having breakfast with the author.
" What the hell is wrong with me? I was the one who decided not to show up for breakfast and now I'm angry because someone else did? I'm completely nuts. " Jenn put her thoughts aside to review them later and changed her train of thought to spending a good time with the writer.
" So, what are your plans for today
Jenn? " Asked Kristen changing to a sitting position on the hammock.
" I was jogging when I saw you here
and decided to come and say hi. I don't have big plans for today just rest and
relax until it's time for the gala tonight." Jenn dropped herself in
the sand and began drawing figures in it.
" Me too, do you want to hang out
together? I was going to check on the jet-ski rentals, what do you say?"
Kris was very excited at the idea of
spending the day with the accountant. Jenn smiled at the writer's enthusiasm and
enjoyed the idea of spending time with her. It was time to stop worrying and
begin to have some fun.
" Of course, it would be great.
Maybe we can make reservations for the afternoon; that way we can have lunch
before and spend more time riding later, what do you think? "
Jenn found herself smiling again "
Wow I've been doing this a lot lately " she thought.
" It sounds good to me; let's go before the reservations get sold out. " Kris was already on her feet and she offered her hand to help Jenn to stand, which she took happily. The contact between their hands was brief, but both of them felt a lot more than a simple hand shake; there was an electricity running between them that neither of them could put a name to, and both of them opted for the same reaction: they ignored it.
The day was spent in contented
camaraderie, each one learning about the other. Sometimes Kristen teased Jenn
about something, and Jenn was starting to learn how to tease Kris. One of the
best moments came when Jenn offered to buy lunch, Kristen said it wasn't a good
idea since she had a big appetite and was really hungry.
" It's going to be expensive Jenn,
I'm warning you, let me buy lunch." Kristen said.
Jenn had ignored Kris's words, and had asked her to place her order with the cashier. Kristen started ordering her lunch and with every word that she'd said, Jenn's mouth had opened a little more. When she finally finished her order Jenn looked like her jaw was on the floor, Kris looked at her with 'I told you so' look that made the accountant laugh out loud.
" You are bluffing It's impossible
that you can eat all that food and an hour later be on top of a motor bike, I
need to see it to believe it. "
Kristen smiled and said " Wait and see. "
At the end of lunch Jenn was once again
had her mouth hanging open in front of a very full Kris and a lot of empty
" You see it wasn't impossible at all! Now all I need is a little rest for a while and I'll be good to go running on the water bike."
Jenn was still in shock at how this woman
could eat so much and look so good in her aqua green two-piece bathing suit that
made a perfect contrast to her eyes and showed her abs that appeared to be of
steel. ' This woman really must work out a lot to have muscles like that and
those abs Jesus, I always wanted to have abs like that. She definitely is a very
good looking woman.'
" What am I thinking here? Shut
up Jenn and move your eyes in the other direction, you're staring! What is she
going to think if she caught you looking at her like that?"
Jenn's inner battles had been a constant since she'd met Kristen so the petite author couldn't tell the difference. Consequently Kris didn't pay a second thought to her new friend's behavior.
" I'm going to do a little
snorkeling near the shore for a while and then we can go to retrieve our motor
Jenn grabbed her snorkel and mask and Kristen decided to take a little suntan and join her friend on the shore.
" I'm going to lie here for a while
to rest after lunch and get color on this pale face. When you're ready come and
get me, and we'll get the bikes okay?"
Jenn nodded and continued walking towards the shore while Kristen sat down on the sand and began taking her sunbath.
Jenn was enjoying herself looking at a lot of different kinds of fish and other marine life. " I am really enjoying this time with Kristen. I couldn't believe I was that stupid and tried to avoid her at breakfast this morning; she is so easy to talk to and I am really happy to have met her in person."
Jenn was so submerged in her own thoughts that she rarely looked at the author for a while. When she thought that she'd had enough snorkeling, she went in search of the writer, so they could go and take their rides on the motorbikes.
Kristen was lying on the sand thinking about how good the accountant looked in the shortest Speedo™ running shorts she'd ever seen and the top of her black bathing suit………. ' That woman is so sexy I can't take my eyes off her! She has a great body, I could lost myself in that body. ' Kristen looked down to the ocean where the accountant was snorkeling on the shoreline. She sighed at the sight of the dark haired woman, who waved at her, she waved back and laid down on the sand again.
A while later, Kristen was startled from
her dozing when she felt a weight upon her, she opened her eyes and looked
directly into blue ones she was lost in them immediately, a husky voice greeted
" Hey, we're back love, we made It.
And those were the only words the woman spoke before she lowered her lips those of the writer. Kristen was surprised by the turn of events but she wasn't one to complain. She had to admit she had wanted to kiss the tall stranger too.
When their lips met Kristen felt like she was in heaven, the first kiss was short and nearly chaste, but when the woman lowered her head for the second time Kristen lost her hands in the dark hair keeping the woman from ending the kiss. As their lips met, a shot of electricity ran through Kristen's body and when she felt the woman's tongue licking her lips seeking entrance, she couldn't deny it. She opened her mouth and the kiss deepened, their tongues fighting for control and learning the softness of the other.
Kristen felt the woman above her move her body and immediately she spread her legs to feel the woman closer to were she needed her most. This action wasn't lost on the dark woman as she began grinding her hips in an ancient rhythm that made Kristen even more excited if it was possible. The author felt the wetness between her legs begin to dampen her bathing suit and she didn't care at all; the only thing she wanted right now was to continue with the torture that the tall woman had begun and find release from it.
The petite woman decided to use her
knowledge of love making to drive this woman crazy and lifted her leg until it
touched the other woman between her legs. She began a movement herself that made
the tall stranger moan in pleasure, which made Kristen more bolder in her kisses
and touches towards the beauty above her. The author was in heaven, nearing her
release; her breathing became labored and all the reasoning that they were in a
public place left her mind since the first kiss she'd shared with the woman who
held her in her arms right now.
Kristen couldn't believe it, she was on the edge and ready to let the woman carry her to the other side of passions, when suddenly she felt water droplets on her face, forcing her to open her eyes only to find a concerned Jenn staring at her with a questioning look.
