Feeling both neighbourly and brave, Sue makes a large pitcher of ice tea and takes it out to the back deck with three glasses. She approaches the fence. “Would you men like to join me for a cold drink?”
“Absolutely!” Cal answers with a smile.
The older man smiles too. “Yes, ma’am.”
Sue waits for them to walk around, out their side gate and in hers. She put a shirt on when she was inside, but she hasn’t buttoned it. She’s tugging at it, checking herself out – her bare belly and bikini boobs. She doesn’t mind the thought of the old guy looking.
I WANT Cal to look…. What’s that about?
She has no idea what she’s thinking as she ushers the two bikers to her outdoor setting and pours them ice tea. She’s sitting between them. Roach is across the corner of the table. Cal is close beside her. His legs are open and one of them keeps touching hers. He has on faded Levis, the crotch is full – his package perhaps appropriately proportioned with his very large hands, she’s thinking.
Roach is a jolly character. He’s telling all about his younger days when he was a member of a hippie commune. Cal is teasing him about his story changing so much every time he tells it.
“Well, we used to smoke a bit of pot, and that LSD leaves you wondering what was real and what you only imagined,” he explains to Sue at one point.
“So, have you been married long?” Cal asks. “What’s your husband’s name again?”
“It’s Josh. Yes, we married young…. Seven years.”
“I’ve had two marriages,” Roach tosses in. “That’ll do.”
“One for me,” Cal confesses when Sue looks to him. “I didn’t quite make seven years.”
Roach grins and winks at Sue. “She wised up.”
“Is that true?” Sue asks Cal.
“Yep. Saw through me. Sent me packing. Married an accountant.”
“Oh. That’s not good.”
Sue giggles. “The accountant.”
Cal laughs. He has a warm laugh.
His leg is pressing against Sue’s again.
Roach finishes the last of his drink. “That was good, Sue. It hit the spot.”
“Would you like some more?”
“No – we’d better get back to it, eh, boss?”
“Yeah, we have a load of concrete coming soon.”
Sue stands with them. The older man ambles off while Cal holds the door open for her to take the tray back inside.
She passes by, brushing close and glancing back.
He looks her up and down, slowly, deliberately. He meets her eyes. “Happily married, yeah?”
The tingles swarm and heat Sue’s face. She nods. “Yeah.”
“Fair enough,” he says with a wink and smile, and he’s gone.
Shit…. Oh, shit!
Sue’s legs are wobbly. She puts the tray on the counter and calls Janie.
“Hi, Sue, what’s up?”
“Shit, Janie. Oh, my God!”
“Can you come over?”
Janie only lives two streets away. Sue gives her nothing over the phone.
“What?” she implores as Sue closes the door behind her and slumps back against it.
“The biker guy next door made a pass at me.”
Janie’s jaw drops. Her eyes bulge.
“Well, not exactly a pass…. He looked me over and asked if I’m happily married or just married.”
Janie looks Sue over too. “And you were dressed like that?”
Sue nods. She’s grinning, kind of gleefully.
Janie shakes her head. “And where did this happen, pray tell?”
Sue fills her in on the introduction over the fence and the ice tea.
“I can have the neighbours over for a cool drink, though – surely?”
“Is he still out there?” Janie’s peeping from the kitchen window. “Oh, my God. He’s hot.”
“Oh, don’t worry. He’s busy shovelling concrete.… What a hunk! Nice going, Peggy Sue.”
Sue peeps over her incorrigible friend’s shoulder. “Shit!”
“He took his shirt off…. That’s not even fair,” she whines.
“Well, we should too,” Janie says, craning her neck as Cal walks behind the edge of the house and out of view. “We should go for a swim and sunbathe.” She checks her watch. “It’s only midday. We’ve got hours until the kids get out of school.”
“What do you mean, we should? Do you mean to show off for them?”
Of course that is what Janie means. She’s a terrible flirt.
She turns to face Sue. “Take those off. You’re not wearing shorts.”
“But do you think we should?”
I want to. I think I called Janie for this exact reason. She always pushes me out of my comfort zone.
Janie’s eyes roll. “Of course we should. He said he’s only going to be around for a week, didn’t he? And you’re going to miss out on a chance to get a bit of attention at least? Get real, Sue. This is perfect. This is clean, honest fun.” She takes Sue’s hand. “Come on – you have to lend me a bikini too. Plus we need sunscreen. It’s hot out there today, and I don’t want to burn.”
The two women have a similar build. Sue gives Janie a blue chequered bikini to wear, and pulls on the bottoms of her white one. They apply the sunscreen in the kitchen and take a couple of big beach towels outside. The guys are resting on their back deck with beers. Sue glances and smiles. Their heads lift with interest.
The pool is in-ground with a concrete boarder. There’s a patch of grass next to the fence where the girls leave their towels. Sometimes they lie on the other side of the pool to sunbathe, but that would be too far away from the men, Sue has decided. Janie is obviously thinking that as well. She raises her eyebrows cheekily.
They wade into the pool, which is only waist deep – for the kids. While they float around chatting, the men resume work in their yard. It’s a clear view through the fence. Sue can’t keep her eyes off Cal as he shovels up piles of dirt and wheels it away in his barrow. His muscles are flexing and quivering. His skin is glistening with sweat.
He’s just eye candy. It’s perfectly reasonable to enjoy watching a muscular, shirtless guy working. There’s nothing unfaithful in that.
“Plus you know Josh has eyes too,” Janie tosses in when Sue explains what she’s thinking. “He even checks me out when I come over for a swim.”
Janie doesn’t know the extent of Josh’s interest in other women. Sue has never confided much about it to her. She once overheard her husband telling a male friend how he only hires attractive chicks at the shop, which seems to be true – they are all slender, pretty young girls employed there. He’s also embarrassingly obvious at the beach, so much so that Sue avoids going these days.
I’m dreading the day Cynthia grows up and starts bringing teen girlfriends home. I know Josh wouldn’t go so far as to actually do anything, but I’m not looking forward to him ogling and making everyone uncomfortable.
Josh really is too wimpy to be bad, though. He’s no worse than his friends – just a typical guy checking out girls – which of course makes this alright.
Janie motions to the towels, biting a smile, and with her big brown eyes wide. Their shirtless Adonis is working along the fence now, spreading and turning the soil in the garden there. He goes inside to answer a phone. The girls quickly get set up.
“I’m glad I did my bikini line last night,” Sue says, adjusting her pants.
“Me too…. Are you going to show him your front first?”
Sue giggles. “Janie! Tart!”
“Dude! How much did you shave off? Is that a landing strip?”
Sue plucks a bit more at her pants. She’s dark-haired down there, and it’s almost visible through the wet white fabric. “Can you see that much?”
“Yeah, but that’s good. You look hot,” Janie assures. “He’s going to love it,” she adds teasingly. “Plus you’ve got the nipples going…. I love your nipples. Mine are so huge.”
Janie’s plucking at her top, fixing it just right. Sue does hers and settles back, closing her eyes. The screen-door of the neighbour’s house slams closed, and she hears footsteps approaching. She squints a peep to see Cal pick up his shovel and resume turning the garden soil. She feels his shadow.
“Hey, ladies…. Nice day for it, eh?”
His voice is deep and rich.
“Hi, Cal. This is my friend Janie.”
Janie’s beaming. “Hi!”
“Hello, Janie. Nice to meet you.” He has a quick look over them both and nods with a grin. “Don’t burn there, eh….”
Janie and Sue exchange an excited glance. Adonis resumes turning the soil. He keeps looking over at them both. He’s checking out Sue’s body quite a lot. She wants to get her bikini wet so it’s see-through again. She motions to the pool and silently mouths the words to Janie, “I’m going to get this wet again.”
Janie’s eyes widen and she smiles. “Slut!”
“I know,” Sue whispers back. “You’re a bad influence.”
Sue lowers into the cool water and can’t resist a little rub of her pussy. She actually did shave to a very narrow strip of pubic hair, which feels nice – sexy. She emerges from the water dripping. Cal is looking at her, but she keeps her gaze averted. He’s looking at her legs. She reaches back and wrings her hair, with his eyes lifting to her boobs. Her nipples are tight again, of course, and visible through the almost translucent fabric.
She kneels on her towel, still facing the gorgeous man watching her. She plucks at her pants. Her landing strip is certainly visible through them, and they’re creasing into her a little bit. She tugs the waist up and exaggerates that for the guy. He’s staring now, blatantly. She glances and meets his smile.
“Got a second, Cal?” Roach calls from the back door.
Cal flashes another smile and actually winks at Sue as he turns and walks away.
Sue glares at Janie. “Oh, my God!”
Janie’s glaring back. “He totally winked at you. The dirty dog!”
They both giggle. Sue lies down beside her girlfriend. They’re on their bellies this time. Sue feels reasonably confident about having her bottom checked out, as she’s sure it will be in a minute.
“Undo your top,” Janie says. She’s pulling the knot at the back of hers.
“Are you serious?”
“Come on – you don’t want tan lines.” She undoes Sue’s top as well.
Sue lets her.
I feel a bit unsure about this, but as long as I remain lying flat, I guess….
Janie closes her eyes. Her head is resting upon her folded arms. Sue can see the side of her boob. Janie shifts, straightening her towel, and Sue sees her nipple. Janie has both strings undone. The one around Sue’s neck is still tied, but as a flurry of excitement filters through her, she undoes it and lets her bikini top fall away.
Janie opens an eye. She’s grinning. “Should we take them off completely?”
“I will if you will, Peggy Sue.”
“Why? No one else can see – only him.”
“Yeah, but I’ve never gone topless,” Sue argues.
“He’s topless,” Janie points out. “Why shouldn’t we?”
The idea is thrilling. I’m not brave enough to actually do it.
“Because, why?” Janie persists. She’s giggling now.
“You’re teasing, aren’t you?…….”
