Layers of clothing were discarded in a flurry of groping hands and desperate kisses. Anything from the waist up was tossed aside until May and Em found themselves nearly stripped bare and breathless, pausing for a moment to take one another in.
May beheld Em’s nakedness with a mix of aching desire and a self-consciousness that made her raise her arms instinctively to clutch across her chest.
“Wow,” May breathed, shamelessly eyeing the curves of Em’s hips and fullness of her breasts. “You’re so beautiful.” She let out a small, flustered laugh. “I feel kind of inadequate next to you.”
“Don’t you dare,” Em replied with a coy smile. Gently she took May’s tightly balled fists and planted a light kiss atop each before pulling them aside, leaving May exposed with nothing between them but the night.
May shuddered as Em leaned close, skin and breasts pressed tightly together in a way that sent her mind spinning. Em kissed her way up May’s neck and to her ear where she whispered in a low and husky voice, “You have nothing to be ashamed of.”
Before May could respond, Em tugged her closer, hoisting her up so she could trail her mouth across May’s collarbone and down to the modest swell of her breasts. Em flicked her tongue across one of May’s nipples before pulling it between her lips, mouthing and sucking eagerly. May moaned despite her best efforts to keep quiet, an unmistakeable sound of pleasure punctuating the the singing of crickets and the crackling fire.
While Em’s mouth worked from one breast to the next, her hand slipped beneath the band of May’s shorts and pressed into the warm space between her legs. May gasped, her surprise quickly overcome by need as she arched into the touch.
Em’s fingers searched slick folds, teasing along May’s entrance before moving on to circle and massage her clit. She started slowly, but May’s petite frame squirmed against her hand until she picked up the pace.
“Will you lay back for me?” Em asked and May, flushed and half-delirious with pleasure, could only nod and let Em’s steady hand guide her gently onto the blanket beneath them.
On her back, the tiny part of May’s mind still able to form a coherent thought became aware that she was lying bare while an equally naked woman fucked her in the middle of the forest. That part of her brain briefly started to fret, the memory of a single incriminating photo flashing in front of her mind’s eye. But, oh, Em was peeling May’s underwear down her long legs, pushing her knees apart to crawl between her thighs and, in that moment, May realized she didn’t care. This was all that mattered now.
Em teased her way along the inside of May’s thighs, peppering the soft flesh with small kisses and light, playful bites as she went. May marvelled at how much she enjoyed those small bursts of pain. To her, the wait was excruciating and she let slip a small whine when Em finally made her way up only to pause when she was so tantalizingly close.
“I’m sorry.” Em’s eyes sparkled mischievously at May from between her legs. “Did you want me to keep going?”
“Please,” May begged, the anticipation almost too much for her.
Em dragged her teeth along the delicate crease where May’s leg met her body with just enough force to make her gasp. Then, so, so slowly, she pressed a smiling open mouthed kiss to May’s pussy.
May cried out as Em’s tongue slid and explored before establishing a satisfying tempo across her clit. Panting and grasping desperately at the shimmering silver of her lover’s hair, May rolled her hips in time with Em’s rhythm, grinding blissfully into her face. Anything to bring them closer, anything to feel everything.
Sooner than she would have liked, May felt pressure grow deep inside like the swirling beginnings of a storm. Then, all at once, the tempest flared violently, shaking May to her core and leaving her trembling in the wake of release.
Em sat up, dragging her thumb languidly across her proud smile. She crawled up to face May who was flushed and still trying to catch her breath.
“How do you feel?” Em traced delicate patterns up May’s body, leaving her shivering.
“Good,” May replied, giggling weakly. “Can I return the favor?”
Neither Em nor May noticed the fire dying down. Locked together tightly, the heat of the night was nothing compared to the warmth trapped between their bodies. They laid still, quiet and content in a hazy afterglow.
May stroked her fingers along Em’s scalp and through her hair, wanting nothing more than to stay exactly as they were for as long as they possibly could. Em’s face nuzzled peacefully into May’s bare chest, her breath so calm May figured she had fallen asleep.
“What are you smiling about down there?” May asked as she suddenly felt Em grin against her skin.
Em peered up, the fading firelight dancing in her pale blue eyes. “I was just thinking you’re like the ocean, only better.”
“What do you mean?” May replied, confused.
“I can’t remember the last time I felt this steady above water.” Em looked a little sheepish. “When I’m focused on you, everything else gets quiet. There’s no buzz of energy pulling my brain in every direction. With you I feel like I’m breathing underwater, and it’s amazing.”
May wasn’t sure how that worked, but knowing she could somehow bring Em that level of peace made her heart soar. Smiling brightly, she gave Em’s forehead a gentle kiss.
“The Star and the ocean,” she mused quietly. “How poetic.”
