Gazillions of stars scattered in the distant sky like a squandered golden sand wastefully thrown out of reach. Marie wondered if the stars were gold, if science makes million ways to get them. Will their value remain the same? She took a deep breath and shifted her gaze at the beauty lying beside her on the grass.
Marie was covering her bare chest with her arms. Never mind the cold that has been there all the time. She could still feel the heat from their torrid sexual encounter radiating in every bit of her being, blocking the cold from coming into her skin. It was consuming. She still got her shorts on. Although the fly was a complete indication of introsion. Or surrender. Whatever the case was, Marie was still a little confused.
Selena was lying very still beside her in silence. The torn lacy cloth that was once a lingerie merely covered her body. She looked like a piece of art and the massive grass was her backdrop. Selena stirred and turned to her side so that the cloth slowly slipped in between them. Marie has to swallow hard as Selena’s breasts protruded in front of her like it was always the first time. She was feasting the sight of it for a while and made a second thought of bringing her mouth on to them again and start getting crazy one more time.
Marie realized that Selena was smiling as she observed her reaction in silence. She looked away.
“You’re a bad girl, do you even know that? ” Selena traced her fingers on Marie’s shoulder.
Marie suddenly felt a renewed heat surged within her but a question that haunted her for days overcame the passion that was about to surface. “Where have you been the past few days?” She was no longer able to hold it back.
“Why do you want to know? Did you miss me?” Selena countered.
“You’re throwing back the question at me!”
“It’s a very simple question. Did you miss me?”
“It’s not that I missed you or something, I was just worried.” Marie looked away hiding whatever emotion she has.
“Worried? Of what exactly?” Selena tried to dig deeper.
“Can we stop throwing questions at each other Selena? It doesn’t make any sense.” She tried to retort so that Selena didn’t press the issue.
Selena looked away. Marie wanted to hold her so badly, to place Selena’s hand over her chest and let her feel the beating of her heart. But she hesitated. What I am thinking? This has to be pure sex and nothing else.
They both stayed silent for a few minutes.
“My dad passed away. I haven’t seen him for so many years after the divorce.” Selena silently said. An obvious pain that was long been suppressed inside started to surface. “I had to fly to Nevada to attend his funeral. I was a daddy’s girl. When he left me and mom, I thought I was gonna die.” Selena’s voice trailed off.
Marie felt a pang of guilt from what she heard. She has been watching for this woman for years yet she didn’t know anything about her. Then it dawned on her that behind the confident and bitchy image laid an untold sad story. She suddenly felt the need to comfort Selena, to hold her in her arms and to never let her go.
“I’m sorry. I should have known.” Marie was deeply saddened but was also glad that for the first time, Selena tried to open up. She thought she saw tears but Selena quickly blinked them away.
