The doorbell rang ten minutes later, and Ara hurried over to get it. Sure enough, when she flung the door open, it was Lauren who was standing on the front steps and squinting against the bright sunlight. Ara squealed in delight and, before she could stop herself, threw her arms around Lauren’s neck and planted a quick but firm kiss on Lauren’s lips. Ara saw the look of surprise on Lauren’s face at her sudden display of affection and laughed heartily.
“Hey!” Lauren exclaimed, and laughed too. She circled her arms around Ara’s waist and held her close. “What was that for?”
Ara sighed contentedly and snuggled against Lauren for a moment. They have been lovers for almost eight months now, something that always made Ara feel proud every time she thought of it. She loved Lauren to death, and she had never been happier in her entire twenty years of existence than when she and Lauren were together. Unfortunately, they had to keep their relationship a secret. Their respective families, who were both conservative and traditional to the core, knew nothing of what went between the two girls. Their friends at the college knew of their relationship, though, and that was good enough for the girls. At least they could take a break from all the hiding and worrying at campus.
“I’m just really happy you’re here,” Ara said, her face buried on Lauren’s chest. She could feel the soft swell of Lauren’s breasts on her cheek. As if on cue, Ara instantly felt turned on. Her mind spun, and she remembered the countless times she had Lauren’s full breasts in her mouth. She remembered the fresh taste of Lauren’s skin and the slightly salty taste of her clean sweat. She remembered stirring the pink nubs that were Lauren’s nipples back to life, and sucking on them like lollipops when they stood firm and erect. God, she loved Lauren so much! Ara sighed again and snuggled even closer to her partner.
“Hey, someone could see us,” Lauren said cautiously. She turned her head slightly and scanned the neighborhood. It was still early afternoon. There was no one on the street, but that didn’t mean it would stay that way. Of the two girls, Lauren was the more level-headed one. She loved Ara and was proud of what they shared, but she knew not everyone was ready to know of their relationship yet. For Lauren, her being cautious was more on wanting to shield Ara from the backlash they would very likely receive once news of their relationship leaked out.
“There’s nobody home,” Ara replied. Her voice was muffled because she still had her face on Lauren’s chest. She nuzzled the tops of Lauren’s breasts lightly, and she felt Lauren stiffen a bit. Ara sighed inwardly. Lauren sometimes worried too much.
“Where’s Sean?” Lauren asked.
“He’s asleep,” Ara answered. “We played tag like crazy, and he was so worn out, he just about went off to Dreamland the second he hit the bed.”
Sean Collins was the six-year-old kid Ara babysat on a regular basis. Since Ara was free on most afternoons—Lauren had classes on Ara’s free time, so they couldn’t be together—she decided to take on a babysitting stint. The Collins’s had recently transferred to the city and lived a few blocks away from Ara’s house. Ara considered herself very lucky to have landed the babysitting job. Mr. Collins seemed a nice-enough man, and of course, there was sweet little Sean. Mrs. Collins died when Sean was only two years old, and Mr. Collins had raised Sean on his own since then. Ara was sad when she learned of Mrs. Collins’s fate, but she had to admit Mr. Collins didn’t do a bad job in raising Sean. The little boy, although equipped with a seemingly endless supply of energy, was friendly, polite, and sweet.
Ara had babysat other kids before, so she was aware of the traditional unwritten rules on babysitting, especially the one on not having anyone over when she babysat someone. Ara was proud of never having broken that cardinal rule in her considerable babysitting career, save for this moment, that is. She had been babysitting Sean for two months now. She knew Mr. Collins trusted her, and she would never do anything to abuse that trust.
But she missed Lauren.
Ara didn’t know what possessed her to call Lauren and ask her to skip her afternoon classes and join her at the Collins’s house. When she realized what she had done, Lauren had already said yes and it was already too late to take things back. The college wasn’t too far from the Collins’s house. Lauren had promised to be over in less than fifteen minutes. True enough, she stuck to her word. Ara had sprung into action when Lauren had rung the bell. The buzzing sound might wake Sean up, and that would be the end of her babysitting stint with the family.
Now, standing on the front steps with her holding Lauren and Lauren holding her back, Ara decided she was happy she had given her girlfriend a ring. She definitely missed Lauren, no doubt about that. She was sorry she had to break one of her cardinal babysitting rules, but she missed Lauren too much to be worrying about things like rules anyway.
Besides, Ara told herself, this would be the first and last time I’ll have someone over while I’m babysitting. I swear I won’t do this again.
Comforted by her internal promise, Ara led Lauren inside the Collins’s house. “Take a seat,” Ara said, as she shut the door behind her.
Lauren walked to where the couch was and sat down. She looked around the living room. “Nice place,” she commented. “A pretty big house for only two people.”
Ara sat beside Lauren and pressed her body against her. “Mr. Collins makes a lot of money,” she replied. “Banking stuff. I wouldn’t know any of that from a five-bar gate.” She wrapped an arm around Lauren’s body and began to nuzzle her on the neck.
Lauren chuckled and wrapped her arms around Ara too. “You’re funny,” she said, leaning her face close to Ara’s. “That’s why I love you so much. You never fail to make me laugh, Ara.”
“Kiss me,” Ara commanded, her voice rough and husky. “Kiss me, Lauren.”
“I’d be glad to,” Lauren answered. Then she placed her lips over Ara’s, and the two fell into a deep, passionate kiss.
Ara hungrily ran her lips over and around Lauren’s. Ara opened her mouth wider and devoured Lauren’s lips whole, telling Lauren how much she sorely missed her. Lauren let Ara know how much she missed Ara by immediately slipping her tongue inside Ara’s open mouth. Ara sighed contentedly. Lauren was here, at last. Things were finally going her way.
The girls kissed each other torridly for several minutes before Ara’s hand went down to Lauren’s breast. Lauren moaned softly as Ara grasped her breast firmly. Ara didn’t do anything at first; she simply let her hand rest on Lauren’s breast while her tongue darted into Lauren’s mouth and flicked around inside eagerly. Lauren took Ara’s tongue and sucked on it vigorously. Ara cried out softly, and that was when her hand and fingers on Lauren’s breast began to move.
Lauren let out another moan. Ara smiled inwardly. Lauren loved it when Ara played with her tits, and Ara was only too glad to oblige. Ara grabbed and squeezed without finesse, producing another moan from Lauren. The moans turned Ara on, and before she gave herself time to think things out, she broke their passionate kissing, lifted up Lauren’s snug-fitting sweater, and pushed Lauren down on the couch. Ara saw her girlfriend had a red slightly lacy bra on. The lace was at the top of the cups, emphasizing Lauren’s full breasts. The sight did wonders to Ara’s arousal, and she immediately placed herself on top of Lauren and attacked her breasts.
“Ara, this is insane,” Lauren said through gritted teeth and in between moans, as Ara took a nipple inside her mouth and began to suck on it hungrily. “What if . . . God, that feels so good! What if Sean wakes up and sees us?” She cried out again as Ara devoured her other breast this time.
