Blissfully Undone(5)

By: Red Phoenix


“Thanks,” he said, not moving a muscle.

The crackle of the fire was soothing. The way the light shifted and flickered over the walls had a hypnotic quality to it. “Dan?”

He turned his head towards her. Jenny felt the sudden urge to kiss him. She lifted her chin so that their lips met. An exhilarating thrill coursed through her body when he pressed his mouth against hers. She pulled away in shock, having never felt that before.

“Wow,” he murmured. After a few seconds he asked, “Was it good for you?”

“Yeah, like scary good.”

“Likewise.”

They sat staring at the flames again. Jenny was unsure what to do. A kiss was excusable. Not good, but excusable. More than that and they were asking for trouble.

“I think my room is warm enough,” Dan said, getting up and moving away from her. She noticed he walked stiffly.

“I’ll see you in the morning,” Jenny called after him.

Dan waved his hand without looking back. He closed the door, shutting out any chance of warmth. Why would he do that?

She lay back down on the couch, trying to forget the way his kiss made her feel. The growing wetness between her legs belied her attempt. Maybe Dan was in that room jerking off while thinking of her. The thought turned her on. A short time later, he cracked the door open and went back to bed.

She was jealous of a man’s ability to do that. Just a simple hand motion on their hard member and they could find release. Her? Masturbation never worked, but tonight she was desperate. Jenny fumbled with her clit, getting her fingers all wet in the process. She rubbed it this way and that, but all it ever produced was more tension, not blessed release. Finally, she gave up in frustration. She squeezed her legs tightly shut and forced herself to think about work. It was hours before she was able to fall back to sleep. It seemed like only moments later when she heard Dan moving logs onto the fire.

“Morning, sunshine.”

“What? It’s morning already?”

“Yep, got you a cup of joe on the counter there if you want it.”

Jenny wiped the sleep from her eyes and was assaulted with her musky smell. She put her hands down quickly, blushing. Jenny washed her hands in the melted snow in the kitchen sink. Then she grabbed the hot mug and drank its warm goodness. “Just the right temp,” she purred.

“Good.” Dan walked over to the counter and picked up his own mug, standing a little too close. “So how did you sleep?”

Jenny’s heartbeat increased being in such close proximity, so she took a step back. There was no way she was about to tell him the truth, so she answered, “Probably as well as you.”

“Not well, huh?”

She crinkled her brow. “You didn’t sleep?”

“Not really. Couldn’t get you off my mind.”

Jenny’s pulse increased. Knowing he had spent the night thinking about her was hard to take. “You probably shouldn’t tell me that.”

“Why?”

“We are stuck here, Dan. We need to be adults about this.”

“I was thinking about that, actually. You know as well as I do that both Ryan and Kelly are going to assume something happened no matter what we say. It’s just the way things are. Two attractive people stuck in a cabin for a week…it’s bound to happen.”

“What’s your point?”

“Well, if we are going to be accused of it anyway, why not enjoy the experience?”

Jenny shook her head. “You just won’t give up, will you?”

“After last night’s kiss? No way.”

She blushed, thinking back on the experience. “It was a fluke. It’s the whole stolen kiss thing. That’s all it was.”

“Wanna prove it?”

She scoffed at him. “Yeah, right.”

“No, seriously. If we kiss and we don’t both feel something, I’ll stop hounding you. Cross my heart.” Dan made a cross motion over his heart and smiled charmingly.

“You’re pathetic, you know that?”

“I think you’re chicken because you know I’m right.”

“Don’t start with me. You know I hate being called a chicken.”

He nodded with a grin. “Yes, I do.”

Jenny rolled her eyes and walked over to Dan. Here in the daylight with no romantic fire things would be different. He tried to put his arms around her, but she stopped him. “You said nothing about hugging, mister. A kiss. That’s it.”

A smile played across his lips. “Fine.” Dan put his hands behind his back and waited.

She tried to calm the butterflies as she tiptoed up to kiss him. For a second she hesitated, afraid that he might be right—but no. She knew better and needed to prove it. Jenny gently pressed her mouth against his firm lips. He snuck a hand around and grasped the back of her neck. He slipped his tongue into her mouth and she felt fireworks go off. The desire she had felt all night instantly reignited. She unwillingly moaned and had to pull away. It was disconcerting.
