Today is all gray and rainy here in The Burg. It wasn’t like that yesterday, but come night fall and the rain stared. Also, it’s a little strange having to deal with the time change, but I’m making the best of it. After all, I’ve gone through this 119 times, yeah?
I did get that writing in. And I’ll get in some more Tuesday night, as I don’t have practice. Tomorrow night, however: three hours with a member of a team that will either be #1 or #2 in the world. I’m both excited and scared at the same time: excited that I’ve got the chance to participate in this clinic, and scared that I won’t be able to keep up with the certified players. I’m going to do my best, you can bet on that.
Speaking of scared, I know of a couple of kids who were just a little while taking a bath. And that’s what I wrote about today–

“And then I started to bathe him.”
Coraline’s head turned a little to the right as she cast a disbelieving glance in Annie’s direction. “You bathed him?”
“Yes.” Annie gave a quick, affirming nod. “I started washing his back, lathering it with soap and then wiping it off with a cloth. I took my time because I not only wanted him to relax, but—” She sighed. “It felt so romantic.”
“It is romantic.” Coraline sighed as well. “Go on.”
“After I finished his back I turned him around so he was facing me and I started on his front. I washed his face, his chest, his tummy and legs…” A slight blush came to Annie’s face. “And his genitals as well, as I believed he should be clean all over.”
“Which is true. What happened when you finished?”
“I made him turn around, handed the soap and cloth to him, and asked him to wash me. He slid his legs under mine and pushed in closer, then started rubbing soap on my body.” Annie smiled at Kerry. “I remember how brightly you blushed at first.”
Kerry nodded. “Yeah, ‘cause I has to touch you, um—”
“You can say breasts. After all—” She gave her a knowing smile. “You have them yourself now.”
“Yeah.” Kerry glanced downward and chuckled. “I do.”
Coraline chuckled. “But that was a first time for you, that time in the tube?” She added a second question. “Touching a girl there?”
There was bathing. And cleaning. All over. No real hanky panky, but when you think about it, Annie was going for something totally romantic. I mean, you can’t do what they are doing and not see it as romantic.
However, Kerry sees it a bit differently…
“That was the first time I touched a naked girl period.” Kerry released a long sigh. “Really, it was so—” She searched for the proper word. “Sensual.”
“Oh, yes.” Coraline nodded slowly. “That’s exactly what I’d say as well. Did you clean Annie well?”
“Yeah. I got her clean.” Kerry turned to her soul mate, smiling. “I washed her in all the same places on the front, then she turned and I got her back. We decided to wash our hair in the morning, so after finishing with her we got out of the tub—”
“Did you dry each other?”
Kerry chuckled. “What do you think?”
Annie answered for Coraline. “Of course we did: we made sure we were both nice and dry before returning to the bedroom. Which we did with a few towels and cloths as well—I didn’t want to get the sheets and comforter stained.”
Coraline saw no need to ask about what Annie thought might cause staining: she knew the girl had considered this while they were likely at dinner that night. “And that’s where you…”
Kerry raised an eyebrow. “Experimented?”
“I was looking for another word.” She thought for a moment. “Everything I’m coming up with sounds so clinical.”
“It’s all right if you say we had sex.” Annie smiled as she shrugged. “Because that’s what we did. I can’t say we ‘made love’ because we never progressed that far, but as far as most people are concerned, we were having sex.”
Kerry pointed to the tablet sitting on the end table next to Coraline. “Those things you asked me about where I said yes, we did those.”
There you have it: they first bath together. And far more interesting and romantic that one night imagine.
But we’re not finished…
