The School Spinster Takes A Chance
(An Original Story by rutger5 - Copyright 2012)
“I’m telling you under the circumstances you’re doing the right thing Julie” her friend said to her as they sat sipping their coffee.
“I know you’re right Lauren, but it’s so difficult. After all these years, heck my whole life really. I’m thirty seven years old and I’ve never made an adult decision on my own. Now I have to decide everything for myself and I’m so overwhelmed.”
“I know Jules, I know, but truthfully you should have been more independent earlier. I’m not saying you should have abandoned her for God’s sake, you just should have spread your wings a tiny bit. She didn’t do you any favors by “protecting” you from the world, she just isolated you to keep you with her all these years. Now she’s gone and in some ways you’re almost helpless.”
“Mother meant well Lauren and she did it out of love no matter what you think. After what happened in her marriage she just was doing what she thought was best for me so I didn’t get hurt like she did. That’s why she moved us from the city to a nice small town so I could have a safe life here.”
“Listen I’m glad you moved to Juneberry or I’d never have met you. I’m just saying you have to live life not seal yourself up in plastic to avoid anything bad from happening to you. That’s not living, it’s just existing.”
“Well be that as it may I have started to move forward some. I left a notice on the bulletin board at the supermarket as well as one at the library and the church. Plus I left my cellphone number as the contact number. Hopefully I’ll get a reply from someone who isn’t afraid of hard work.”
“Wow I’m impressed and to think that a little over a year ago I had to almost force you to get a cell and join the twenty first century.”
Julie let out a tiny laugh and she smiled before replying to her younger friend.
“Yes you were right there as well but I told you that soon after I first got it smartypants.”
Lauren was still thinking of a reply when the bell rang announcing that their break was over and the next class would soon be starting. The two high school teachers exited the faculty lounge and with a friendly goodbye they headed in separate directions for their respective classrooms.
Ten minutes later Julie was going over her review of the Romantic poets for the upcoming test on Friday. She’d always favored giving tests on that day to help her students remain focused on their studies the whole week. For the most part they seemed to be paying attention though no doubt some were bored to tears and if she weren’t mistaken Rachel Hughes was playing with her phone, no doubt the pretty cheerleader was texting someone. Well as long as she sat in the back quietly and didn’t bother anyone else then Julie would just ignore her.
Of course she should warn her or even give her detention but Julie was too softhearted for that and truth be told that girl had a way of making her feel two inches tall. There would be times where she would be conversing with her friends, all popular, pretty girls like herself, and she would make some mocking veiled comment that was obviously about Julie who would be within earshot.
Julie tried not to take it personally as Rachel was indiscriminate in her insults and everyone but her own circle of friends or ‘hot guys’ would be subject to her withering comments. After all Julie was used to it and had received such treatment since she was a student in the same school from her own classmates who’d openly mocked her frumpy wardrobe and lack of social skills.
A few hours later Julie was in the parking lot saying good night to Lauren.
“Are you sure you don’t want to come along Jules? You know you’re always welcome.”
“No I don’t want to be a third wheel Lauren. You and Jeff enjoy yourselves. Besides I have papers to grade and in case someone replies to my ad I really should start to prep things so work can begin.”
“All work and no play makes Julie a dull girl and you know if you just give the word Jeff could arrange for one of his co-workers to come as well so we’d be a foursome.”
“No I’d just bore him as school is all I know how to talk about. But have a good time and I’ll see you tomorrow.”
Lauren made a grimace at her friend’s reply. She had been trying so hard to break her out of her shell as well as away from that mausoleum she called a home. Well Rome wasn’t built in a day and in the past year progress had been made but Lauren had hoped now that Julie was alone she might hasten the process.
“Okay my dear be that way if you want. But if Jeff’s friends are unacceptable what about one of the men from your church?”
“Now that’s funny Lauren. Let me tell you that I’m like one of the youngbloods there. There are no single men within ten years of my age. There’s a couple of elderly widowers and a handful of men far too young for me. So that idea though no doubt well intentioned is going nowhere.”
“Well maybe one of the young studs…” Lauren began but she stopped when she saw the shocked expression on her friend’s face. “Okay fine Miss Goody Two Shoes and I’ll see you tomorrow.”
Julie climbed behind the wheel of her little Honda Civic and started the ignition. She waved to Lauren as she pulled from her parking space and drove off. Fifteen minutes later she was parked in her driveway and getting out. Before she got halfway to the door a gray ball of fur streaked towards her legs coming from the overgrown hedge that bordered her and her neighbor’s yard. As Julie proceeded to the front door the feline rubbed against her ankles affectionately.
“Hello to you Emily. Did you have a nice day sleeping in the sun and stalking prey?”
Julie spoke from first hand knowledge as the little furball had often deposited ‘little gifts’ of torn and bloody rodents and birds for her mistress and seemed to enjoy the discomfort they provoked. Julie unlocked the front door and followed Emily in, picking up the mail on the floor from beneath the slot. Julie deposited both the mail and her bag on a table and headed to the kitchen with Emily eagerly trailing.
The cat food rattled against the dish as Julie poured some in before placing it on the floor mat near the sink and then added some fresh water to the other bowl. Julie then headed upstairs so she could change from her schoolmarm clothes. She entered her bedroom which hadn’t been updated since before she had returned from college. Her high necked white button down blouse was the first thing she removed then she unzipped and slipped out of her long pale blue skirt leaving her in her plain and modest white undergarments.
When she reached for a sweatshirt her eye caught her reflection in the mirror. Julie stopped for a moment and studied her reflection. She saw a pretty woman wearing no makeup except for a trace of pink lipstick staring back at her. There were a few very faint lines by the corners of her big brown eyes but good genes and clean living made her appear years younger, thirty at the most.
On a whim she reached back and unhooked her bra and slid it from her shoulders exposing her small perfectly shaped bosom. They were pert and slightly upturned topped with pink nipples. Julie turned one way then the other as she dispassionately took in her appearance. She had always been tall and slim, a skinny Minnie her mother always said in a pitying manner, but Julie had remained the same dress size since college while many of the girls she’d attended school with had become larger the older they got. In fact some of her fellow students now had children whom she taught and it gave her a tiny bit of pleasure to see how the popular crowd hadn’t aged quite so well though she felt guilty about her reaction. Not quite what a good Christian should feel but some of them had been so cruel to her.
She slid the sweatshirt over her long brown hair as she pulled it on. It felt nice against her bare nipples but she tried to put that out of her mind, no time for such thoughts now. Maybe if she had time later after taking care of things first she could treat herself later. But first she had work to do. As she pulled sweats on she couldn’t help but notice that her walking and stair climbing was paying off.
At school she would often walk the stairs between classes and there were times she would spend a free period doing that or walking around the track in good weather. Julie had realized that as she got older she had to do something or nature would take its toll so she had started an exercise regimen. As of yet she hadn’t even confided in Lauren that she was doing it but Julie had noticed that from her calves all the way to her buns she was firming up. Not that there was anyone, meaning a man, to notice and appreciate her hard work.
‘Hold on Julie, stop feeling sorry for yourself. There are plenty of people worse off than you. You should be grateful for all your blessings’ she chided herself.
Next she twisted her long locks and slipped a scrunchy over her hair leaving it in a ponytail so it would be out of her face. A pair of sneakers completed her outfit and then she headed up to the attic. The attic had been cluttered since she could remember but if she was going to get the house in order she had to tackle it as well. A few hours later Julie was dirty and sweaty and her arms and back ached from her efforts but she’d made a dent she realized. She also knew that maybe she needed to add some upper body exercises to her regimen to balance things out because she was really feeling it from the work she’d done.
In the freezer she removed a Lean Cuisine frozen dinner which she popped in the microwave. She ate it while she graded papers and she continued grading long after she was finished dinner. Finally a crick in her neck made her stop for the night and she slipped the papers in her bag and stood. Wearily she climbed the stairs after first checking that the doors were locked and turning off the lights.
Once the water was to the right temperature Julie stepped into the steaming shower. For the first five minutes she just let the water hit her right between her shoulder blades helping to loosen and relax her tired and sore muscles. Finally when she gained some relief she actually started to wash herself running the washcloth over her body. However when the rough material brushed against her sensitive nipple she felt a jolt that traveled all the way to between her legs.
From that moment on Julie hurried up and within five minutes was wrapping herself in her terrycloth robe. She padded back to her room and after slipping her flannel nightgown on slipped under the covers. She made a pretense of reading the book that sat on her nightstand at first but she knew what she needed. Putting the book down she reached to the bottom drawer and pulled out her laptop and turned it on. In a few minutes she was on a certain website - her guilty little secret that Lauren had told her about.
It was a triple-x adult site that had both videos, which she couldn’t bring herself to watch after witnessing the misogyny she had seen the one time she tried as well as erotic stories which were more to her liking. There were many that weren’t to her tastes due to non-existent writing skill or unpalatable themes but there were some hidden gems located there that really got her juices flowing. With pleasure she realized that one of her favorite female authors had just posted a story and she eagerly began to read.
It was a tale heavy on romance but with some very hot sex included and according to the author was based on true people and events. Whether that was true or not and Julie certainly had her doubts it turned her on without question. By the time the characters were naked in the barn making love Julie was very aroused herself. She shut the computer off and put it away before she pulled her nightgown up past her chest and lay back.
Her trembling fingers first lightly brushed her nipples sending signals to nerves across her body. Julie closed her eyes as she always did and let her imagination take over. In her mind she wasn’t alone but her mysterious lover was beside her. She had never pictured his face but she knew he was devastatingly handsome the way all literary romantic characters were. He had dark, thick hair and was tall of course and she could picture his body - muscular but not bulky and perfectly proportioned.
He existed only to bring her pleasure and he was good at his job. His strong yet gentle hand cupped her breast and squeezed it with just the right amount of pressure to stimulate without discomfort. As her passion grew his actions increased in intensity. A hand found its way between her legs and stroked her wet sex. Her legs involuntarily parted wider and Julie threw her head back and moaned softly as her juices flowed freely now. Both her breast and clit were being manipulated expertly and exactly as she preferred.
Her slim fingers slid into her moist furnace making her gasp as her thumb now circled her nub. Julie could feel herself getting close to release so she increased the tempo of her fingers pushing them deeper and faster. Her tunnel clung to them as they worked in and out making a sucking sound with each thrust.
Right when she reached the precipice her thumb and forefinger pinched her nipple as hard as she was able to. That touch of pain in combination with her fingers reaching as deep as they could go was more than enough to send her senses reeling. Julie bit her lip so hard that a drop of blood escaped and rolled to her cheek. She thrashed on the bed for a minute, her limbs writhing like serpents, as her climax overwhelmed her.
It took a couple of minutes before Julie opened her eyes revealing that she was back in her own room again and alone. She withdrew her fingers which were wet with her dew and pulled her nightgown back into place. Her breathing had also returned to normal by now and only her still flushed cheeks and satiated expression gave a clue of what had just happened. Julie switched off the table lamp and pulled the covers around herself. Emily had not appeared and Julie wished that she had as it would be nice to cuddle with something alive now. But that’s how cats were - if you wanted them then it was unlikely they’d appear.
Julie arrived a trifle early the next morning and after putting on sneakers she had climbed the stairs until her calves ached dully. If she got an opportunity she wanted to ask her friend Mrs. Deen who was a phys-ed teacher for some advice about some upper body exercises that might work for her. She could just imagine what her mother would have said about this if she’d still be alive. Obviously she wouldn’t have approved. Julie could hear Mother’s voice in her head saying so.
‘It is very unladylike to perspire especially when doing physical activity like exercise or labor. Perhaps for those who have no intellectual capacity it can be forgiven partially but I suspect even then it’s a sign of moral turpitude.’
However that had never prevented her from working Julie like a mule when it suited her. The number of times Julie had rubbed her hands raw scrubbing the wooden floors or doing garden work was beyond count. But there was no sense being bitter Julie thought as she headed to her classroom. The morning moved by quickly and before she knew it she was having lunch with Lauren.
“So how have the monsters been behaving today?” Lauren asked.
“Don’t call them that, its not nice” Julie replied before letting out a tiny giggle.
“Oh come on you know its true, at least for some of them.”
“Most of my students are very nice and the rest are just misguided and in need of direction” Julie answered as she delicately nibbled on a corner of her tuna salad on whole wheat sandwich.
“Yeah okay but if you just had the class I did you’d be singing a different tune honey. Not only did I have to stop an argument before it became physical but one of the geniuses told me in response to a question that the Magna Carta was a sixties rock group.”
Julie couldn’t help but laugh at that tidbit but she still felt her friend was being too harsh.
“Lauren they are still kids and you are being a trifle too cynical I think. Well anyway how did last night go, did you have a good time?”
“Yes I did as a matter of fact, more than once in fact” Lauren told her before winking.
Julie put her hand over her face in mock embarrassment though by now she was used to such comments from her younger friend. It was that openness that had helped Lauren break Julie out of her shell if only partially.
“Well I’m happy for you.”
“Thanks and what about you, have an exciting night doing paperwork Jules?”
“I’ll have you know that I also got a lot accomplished organizing some things to help with the house.”
“How exciting. Speaking of that any responses to your notice?”
“No I haven’t and frankly I’m surprised. What with the economy so bad you’d figure I’d get a little interest but not one call.”
Lauren sat there with her brow furrowed which she often did when she was thinking before her expression changed.
“Don’t take this the wrong way Julie but is your phone even on? You have the habit of leaving it off for days at a time. More than once I’ve called it only to get your voicemail.”
With a sheepish look Julie opened her bag and rummaged around until she pulled her phone out. Unwilling to meet her friend’s eyes she took it from its case and turned it on. Once the screen went up Julie saw that she had three voicemails.
“Oops maybe I did get some responses and don’t you say you told me so” she told Lauren to cut her off at the pass.
Lauren just sat there with a smug expression as Julie went to her voicemail and listened.
“Hello my name is John Colt and I’m inquiring about the ad for work. I’m skilled in carpentry and I can certainly paint and move things. I’m competent at least in electrical and plumbing and I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty either. Hope to hear from you.”
The message concluded with him leaving his phone number and had been left the day before. There was something about the voice that stirred her memory but she couldn’t quite place it as the phone started to play the next message. This one came from an actual contractor whose business must be hurting if he was answering her ad but there was something about the way he spoke that she didn’t like. It was as if he sounded drunk and wasn’t even attempting to mask it. Finally the third message came on and with a start Julie heard it was the first caller again.
“Umm, hello this is John Colt again. Sorry for calling again but I was just wondering when I might be hearing from you. The thing is I just received an offer for a job but it’s from out of town so I need to make a decision. Thanks. Uh and by the way I could be wrong and if I am then I apologize but the ad said Miss Jones and I was curious if you’re the Miss Jones who taught an English class of mine. Either way hoping to hear from you soon.”
For a minute Julie was speechless. No wonder his voice and now his name seemed familiar to her. He had been in her class six or seven years ago and last she had heard he had moved out of town soon after graduating. Well he must be back she thought as memories from then came back to her.
“Hello earth to Julie, are you here or in space somewhere? And what are you smiling about?”
Suddenly Julie realized she was grinning like an idiot and quickly changed her expression to a more normal one.
“Sorry Lauren I was just thinking about something and how it really is a small world.”
“And what made you come to that conclusion, one of your messages?”
Julie nodded in assent to her friend’s query before speaking.
“One of the people calling about the work is a former student of mine if you can believe it.”
“Why not Julie, I don’t doubt that a large number of people in this town have been taught by you. It was only bad luck on my part that you didn’t teach me as well. So anyone that I know?”
“I’m not sure, he’d be younger than you by a few years. His name is John Colt.”
“Johnny Forty-five! You got to be kidding me Julie. Of course I know him, he and my younger sister used to run with the same crowd back in the day.”
“Johnny Forty-five?” Julie said with a puzzled expression on her face.
“Duh yeah. You know like a Colt .45 gun. I swear Julie sometimes I wonder about you. I remember he was quite the hottie back then. My sister and her friends drooled over him I can tell you that. Are you going to hire him?”
“I don’t know Lauren, I haven’t talked to him yet but I didn’t like the sound of the other applicant. I guess I’ll give him a call and we can discuss it.”
“Well if you’re going to meet with him give yourself a little time to fix yourself up first.”
“Lauren first of all I’m looking to hire him to do some work for me not for romance. Secondly he was my student and he’d be much too young for me even if…”
Lauren held her hand up to stop Julie from continuing and arched her eyebrow as she did.
“Let me tell you something. One - I saw your face when you were listening to his message and you didn’t seem to be considering his job qualifications. Secondly he’s not your student now and in case you haven’t heard Julie, older women/younger men is all the rage these days. Cougars and their cubs and all.”
As her friend went on Julie’s face turned as red as a beet and she cast her eyes down.
“I knew it, I knew when you were thinking about him earlier that something was going through your mind. Go on tell me Julie as you know I’ll get it out of you sooner or later.”
“It’s not like that Lauren, really. But you are right that he’s very good looking, I do remember him always wearing one of those black motorcycle jackets. And he is actually smart as well.”
“That’s a new one to me, I had no idea about that.”
“I doubt he advertised that fact, maybe it wasn’t cool for him to show that side of himself. I mean I don’t ever remember him raising his hand in class or volunteering an answer. But I graded his tests and he had a high average and there were a few times he answered an essay in such a manner that I couldn’t help but to be impressed with his mind. And we’re talking about poetry Lauren. No he is actually intelligent.”
“There you go then. We agree that he’s handsome and he’s also smart and knows poetry. Sounds perfect for a single friend of mine, she should call him.”
“You’re hopeless but I will call him - about the work.”
After saying that Julie sat in silence for a couple of minutes until Lauren spoke up.
“Well what are you waiting for? Oh I get it you don’t want to do it in front of me. No problem Jules I have things to do.”
Lauren rose to her feet as soon as she was finished speaking and picked up her bag from the table.
“Lauren you don’t have to go” she said but her friend just smiled as she headed for the exit.
Still having a little time remaining in her lunch period Julie swallowed hard then punched in the digits of John Colt’s number. She was ready to hang up after three rings when suddenly she heard his voice.
“Hello” it said and for a second Julie’s mouth wasn’t working. “Hello is anyone there?”
“Y-y-yes I’m sorry. Am I speaking with John Colt?”
“Yes you are and this is?”
“Hi John this is Miss Jones, Julie Jones returning your call. And before you ask it was me that taught you in high school.”
“I knew it, that’s so cool. So your ad said you needed a lot stuff moved with some painting and minor repairs as well. Is that right?”
“Yes, my Mother passed during the past winter and I’m trying to get the house in order and there is a lot to do. It’s been many years since anything was updated and I’m afraid a lot of things have been accumulating.”
“Well I’m sorry to hear about your mom. The thing is as I said in my second message I do have an offer from out of town. Do you have an idea of how long this job will take and to be honest what the pay would be?”
“The pay would be competitive I’m sure as I do have adequate funds available to draw from. The length of time however I’m not sure about. Truthfully I don’t know how long it will take, that depends on a lot of factors including how much repairs and updating gets done as well as how fast you can do the work. Maybe if you look at what has to be done you could give me an idea on how long you think it will take.”
Julie heard him chuckle before replying.
“Good thing you said that to me and not some people. Some might hear that and exaggerate the difficulty to jack up their price. Tell you what, is it okay for me to come by today and take a look? Then I can give you my best estimate of the time involved and we’ll go from there.”
“Um okay John. I should be home around three thirty so anytime after that will be fine. Let me give you the address.”
The rest of the day seemed to crawl by it was going so slowly. Every time Julie looked at the clock it seemed not to have moved. Finally her last class concluded and the students filed out. As she gathered together her belongings Julie heard a noise and looked up to see Lauren approaching.
“Well?” she asked.
“Don’t try and be cute Julie. I saw you on the phone as I was leaving so tell me everything.”
“There isn’t much to tell” Julie began trying to act nonchalantly about it all. “He agreed to come and take a look so he can let me know how long he thinks it will take. Then I guess we’ll discuss money and if possible come to some kind of agreement.”
“Mmm and when is this all going to take place if I may ask?”
“Later this afternoon” Julie answered in a low voice which prompted a near shriek in reply from Lauren who then covered her mouth for a second.
“Sorry about that Julie but my God you move fast. I’m proud of you and thankfully you have me to help you.”
“Help me in what way?” Julie asked nervously as her friend went and closed the classroom door before returning with a smile on her face.
Lauren opened her purse and removed a small zippered bag from inside and put it on the desk.
“To fix your face of course and make you even more attractive then you already are. And don’t say anything as you have no say in the matter. Don’t worry Julie, I will be very subtle. Even your own mother wouldn’t have been able to criticize you for looking ‘whorish’ I believe is the term she liked to use.”
“You know I told you how sorry I was about that Lauren, but Mother was set in her beliefs. I did get cross with her and told her off.”
“I know sweetie and believe me it didn’t bother me really. Good thing she didn’t know what a sex maniac I am or she would never have let us be friends. Just kidding, now you sit back and let me work my magic.”
Reluctantly Julie sat back in the chair and closed her eyes. Soon she felt Lauren applying something around her eyes and a short while later brushing something soft across her cheeks. Though not much time had passed, certainly under ten minutes, Julie started to get apprehensive when she heard Lauren’s voice.
“Okay all done, now take a look.”
Julie opened her eyes and saw her friend standing there holding a small makeup mirror which she gave to her. Fearing what she’d see Julie held it up to her face and was pleasantly surprised, in fact she was elated. Whatever Lauren had done made her eyes stand out in a good way and the only other change she noticed was just a hint of color on her pale cheeks.
“So Julie what do you think? I went for a very understated look, just a tiny bit of rouge to give you some color and I highlighted your eyes to make them pop. I think they are one of your best features but what do I know. Your skin is so healthy and fair that you really don’t need much for it. Sometime if we get the chance and you let me I’d like to go all out you even if afterwards you wash it right off.”
“Thank you Lauren, it really does flatter my eyes. Who knows, maybe I will let you experiment on me some day. But thanks and I really appreciate what you did. Well what you always do for me, I don’t know what I did to deserve such a good friend.”
“Oh stop I’m not a saint or something and you’re a very good friend to me too, you know. Anytime I ask for something you’re there for me. Damn that time I had the flu you kept coming over and bringing me soup that you made yourself. I’m the lucky one.”
The two women hugged after Julie stood and together they headed out to the parking lot. Once they said goodbye they went their separate ways. As Julie approached her house she observed a big black pick up truck parked in front with a man leaning against it. She pulled into the drive and killed the engine then seeing her reflection in the mirror smoothed her hair. Though it was foolish she felt very nervous and delayed getting out until she could calm herself.
Breathing in a controlled manner she climbed from the car taking her bag with her. As soon as she emerged the man straightened up and headed in her direction. With a tiny gasp Julie realized that John was even better looking than she recalled and that his body had filled out since school. Years of hard work had made him muscular but he still appeared lean. When he reached her he extended his hand in greeting.
“Good to see you again Miss Jones. Wow you haven’t changed a bit since school.”
“Likewise it’s good to see you John. I’m afraid that I can’t agree with your assessment but you look well.”
While she spoke Julie noticed that John had discreetly run his gray eyes the length of her body as men tended to do though usually not to her. He flashed a perfect smile before answering her.
“I stand by what I said Miss Jones and believe me I studied you a lot in class.”
Julie blushed from his frankness and turned toward the house at a loss of how to reply. She wasn’t used to being flirted with, even of the innocent variety since her college years. That was the only time in her life she had been away from home and had acted somewhat free.
“The house is impressive Miss Jones, how old is it?” he asked to try and change the subject since he had seemed to embarrass her. ‘You idiot’ he thought to himself ‘you see her for the first time in years and you make a fool of yourself and even worse offend her.’
“It is quite old John” she said happy to be talking about anything but her appearance “I believe it was built in the 1880’s or 90’s. Thankfully they built them solidly back then or it would have fallen apart long ago from the lack of attention it’s received recently.”
They walked to the front door as they spoke but John continued studying the house as they approached. What she said was true about the neglect to the building and he noted more than a few items needing repair or replacement.
“I know that what we discussed was about the interior but I can’t help noticing that there are some exterior issues as well” he said as she fished her keys from her purse.
“Oh dear John, I hope nothing too serious” Julie replied as she opened the door.
Like clockwork Emily decided to appear but seeing the stranger she hung back until the door stood open at which time she darted past them both. He was surprised as the feline seemed to come from nowhere but Julie paid no attention to the cat. John regained his composure and began speaking again.
“Well the gutters look to be in bad shape and the chimney has a few cracks at the least. It’s hard to tell from the ground but if that’s all it can be repaired easily. Now if it was me, and the budget allowed for it, I’d say install new gutters as well as many windows as possible. Those old ones must be very drafty and inefficient and you’d recoup the money with lower energy bills.”
“Yes during the winter months it’s very hard to keep the house as warm as I’d like. Can you do these things? Because to be honest I hadn’t even thought about such things. I’m afraid I’m not very knowledgeable on such matters.”
“I could certainly do the window and gutter work though obviously it wouldn’t be cheap. Just the cost of purchasing the windows will add thousands as you have a lot of windows. Then depending on the style you want will affect it as well.”
“Oh dear now my head is spinning. It seems like I haven’t really thought this out well.”
“Listen Miss Jones I’m sorry for confusing the issue. That wasn’t my intention. You’re the boss about what gets done and if all you want to worry about is the interior that’s fine. It’s a big house and just painting the inside will take time. But if for example you decided to replace the windows it would make sense to do before painting the interior of the room.”
“That seems practical I must admit. Well how about at the least you see what has to be moved either to be thrown away or given to charity and also get an idea about the size of the rooms to be painted.”
“Good plan, lead the way.”
For the next hour they walked the house from the crowded attic to the damp cellar and all in between. Julie had felt very self conscious when they had entered her bedroom as she hadn’t made her bed that morning and her flannel nightgown was lying across it but he didn’t say a word. After they were finished with the inspection they went to the kitchen where Julie first fed Emily before joining John at the table.
He had been going over some numbers on a pad, figuring both the time required and how much materials would be needed depending on what Julie ultimately decided to do. Finally on a separate sheet of paper he wrote what he would require for himself though he did give her a break there. John slipped the papers across the table to Julie. When she noticed the price her eyes widened a bit but she didn’t comment.
“Now feel free to shop around but do understand that I will need an answer soon. I’d prefer to stay in town as one of the reasons I returned was my Father hasn’t been well but I can’t go any lower as it wouldn’t be worth my while financially.”
“No I understand John, I just have no experience in these matters. However it seems reasonable. I tell you what, at the least I want to do what was originally mentioned plus replace at least some of the windows.”
“Great, then I tell you what. I can start tomorrow morning and the first few days I’ll be busy just moving a lot of the accumulated stuff from the attic and other rooms. Then whenever you get an opportunity you can look at some paint colors and window styles and we’ll go from there. So what time do I have to be here tomorrow so you can let me in?”
“Well I usually leave at seven thirty so can you make it before that?”
“No problem Miss Jones and it’s really good to see you again.”
“Likewise John and I’ll see you tomorrow.”
She walked him to the front door and saw him off, waving as he drove away. When she closed the door behind her she leaned against it a minute and definitely her heart was beating rapidly.
‘Stop being silly Julie’ she told herself ‘not only is he far too young for you but I really doubt you’re his type and no doubt he was just being polite about your appearance or more likely was complimenting you to help him get the job.’
Still Julie stayed in a good mood that night even singing aloud more than once. She labeled a lot more items to go as since she was turning over a new leaf she decided to go all out. Only when she went to her mother’s room did she turn somber. Ever since she had discovered her mother there that morning she had hated the room with a passion. Because of this she decided to put off working there for now and once she left her mood improved.
The next morning John arrived at seven fifteen dressed in jeans, work boots and a black t-shirt which matched his short dark hair Julie thought. He carried a small cooler and a support belt for his back.
“Just my lunch” he told Julie as way of explanation holding up his cooler.
“There’s no need for that John, my refrigerator has plenty of room. In fact it’s usually half empty. Give me that and if you want some coffee there’s a little left in the pot.”
“Thanks” he answered as he handed her the cooler.
She opened it and put the items inside including one beer bottle.
“Just a beer with lunch, hope you don’t mind. If you prefer I won’t drink it.”
“No John its fine, I’m not much of a drinker myself maybe a glass of wine when I’m out to dinner with friends sometimes. Mother never approved of spirits.”
“Well a glass of wine is good - after all Jesus drank wine right?”
She smiled as she answered. “That’s true I guess. I have to go and you have my number if there’s a problem. One last thing, you met or at least saw my kitty Emily yesterday. She tends to come and go as she pleases but now that the weather is getting warmer she’s out a lot. But if you hear her scratching on the door could you let her in?”
“No problem Miss Jones and have fun at school.”
“Thank you John and have fun moving things” she replied and started to leave but she stopped and turned back to him. “And since with you working here for a while and certainly no longer a student you can call me Julie if you prefer.”
“Okay Julie and that’s a very pretty name” he said and just managed to stop from saying ‘for a pretty woman’ but after embarrassing her yesterday he was being careful.
“Thank you” she said quietly.
For the next few hours he worked his ass off and managed to make quite a dent removing material from the attic. Most of what he got rid of was labeled trash in Julie’s neat flowery and this he placed on the side of the driveway. He wasn’t sure what day the house received trash pickup so he thought it best to leave it there for now. The remaining items Julie hoped to donate to charity, with the majority being furniture along with some items in boxes. These he transported to her garage which she only used to shelter her car during the winter months. It was during one of these trips there that he saw a face peering through the hedge that bordered the property.
“Good morning” John cheerfully called out.
The face disappeared like a shot causing John to laugh but he put it out of his mind and resumed work. Later he needed to retrieve a tool from his truck to help him break a large piece of furniture into sections so it would be easier to move. As he closed the truck door he couldn’t help but notice that there was a couple sitting on the front porch of the house next door.
“Hello” called out the man as he stood and waved to John who returned the wave. The man gestured for John to come over with a motion. He had no idea why but he’d been going non-stop so he welcomed the break and turned up the neighboring sidewalk. When he reached the porch the man extended his hand and gave him a hearty handshake.
“How do you do. My name is Jack Russell and this lovely lady is my better half Edna.”
“Glad to meet you, my name is John Colt” he replied and nodded at the gray haired bespectacled woman who sat close by and who he recognized as being the person who had been watching him earlier.
“Not to be nosy but the little woman told me that you seem to be moving some things out of the Jones place.”
“Yeah that’s right. Just trying to get the place in order for Julie, uh Miss Jones.”
“And you’re a friend of hers?” Edna Russell inquired eagerly as she leaned forward.
“Truthfully I’m working for her though I’m a former student of hers” John replied to which Edna sighed and clucked her tongue before answering.
“That’s too bad, she’s such a nice girl but she seems to be unlucky when it comes to love.”
“Now dear maybe you’re just projecting what you think is best for Julie” Jack told his wife.
“Who are you fooling you old goat, you know that you agree with me. I blame her mother, God rest her soul. She was just too overprotective and now Julie is past the age where she’ll find Mr. Right probably.”
“Well it was nice meeting you but I should be getting back to work” John said as he felt uneasy with where the conversation had gone.
“Now look at what you’ve done, scaring John away with such talk” Jack said to Edna.
“No really it’s not that. I just need to get back to work is all. But the job just started so I’m sure I’ll see you a lot. Take care.”
That afternoon as Julie ate her lunch Lauren had peppered her with questions about John. She had replied truthfully though her answers didn’t seem to satisfy her friend.
“What do you want me to say Lauren. He’s there working and that’s all there is to it. Sorry to disappoint you but this isn’t a story from you know where” she said, lowering her voice for the final part.
Lauren smiled wickedly at a thought that came to her after her friend’s declaration before she spoke.
“If I was you Julie I might be a little nervous with a strange man alone in my house. If he’s anything like men from stories on xnxx.com then by now he’s jerking off into a pair of your dirty panties. Can you imagine?” she said with a laugh.
“Oh my God! Don’t say that Lauren, even kidding around. He’s not like that, is he? What do you know about him that you’re not telling me?”
Looking around to make sure that no one in the lounge was listening first Lauren replied to her friend.
“I’ve never heard anything like that but you never know with men, they’re all beasts. But I did remember something I heard about him. If you’re interested that is?”
“Of course I am Lauren. Tell me” Julie whispered as she leaned closer to her fellow teacher.
“Well one time years ago when I still lived at home I happened to overhear a conversation between my sister and one of her friends. It seems they were at a party and John and his girl at the time had gone into a bedroom for some privacy if you get my meaning. I guess the girl was a bit loud and not just moaning but she was a talker as well. Some pretty wild things were said but the thing is some guy being a smartass happened to open the door while they were going at it. A lot of people including my sister managed to see into the room and from what I heard there was another reason they called him Johnny Forty-five. It seems he has a BIG gun if you follow me.”
“Oh my God Lauren! What are you saying? Never mind” Julie said, her face crimson.
Lauren just smiled in a knowing way at her friend.
When Julie arrived home that afternoon she was surprised to see how much had already been accomplished. The amount of stuff removed boggled her mind but what really shocked her was that when she went into her house she found John sitting in the kitchen with Emily sprawled on his lap purring as he stroked her behind her ear.
“Hi” he said as she walked in the room “I hope you don’t mind but I was just taking a break and Emily decided to hang with me. We kind of became friends when I gave her a little of my lunch earlier.”
“Why would I mind but she doesn’t usually warm up to most people quickly so I guess that means she approves of you. I saw you managed to get a lot done today. It’s a good thing I hired you because it would have taken me a lot longer to do and it probably would have put me in traction on top of that.”
“Yeah in that at least it makes sense. The way things are going I’ll be done tomorrow with removing stuff from the house and you’ll have to make your decision on how many windows you want to replace and what style so start to think about it. I guess I’ll call it a day and I’ll be back bright and early tomorrow. Have a good night Julie and I’ll see you too Emily” he said as he gently put the cat on the kitchen floor before standing and departing through the kitchen door.
Emily yawned and stretched before rubbing her nose against her mistress’ ankle as she waited for her supper. Julie fed the cat and scratched Emily’s head as she chowed down.
“What do you think Em, about John I mean? You like him and he seems nice and here I am asking my cat for advice. God I’m losing it.”
Julie walked the house again looking for things to get rid of that she might have missed in her initial survey while also inspecting and taking a count of her old drafty windows. She made her final decision on the colors she wanted a number of rooms painted as well. Satisfied with what she’d done Julie had her dinner while doing schoolwork the rest of the night.
That night she didn’t sleep well, tossing and turning then waking up bathed in perspiration. Unfortunately she knew the reason why. Her dreams were causing this reaction and not only were they of a sexual nature but John featured prominently in them. Finally desperate to get some sleep she pulled her nightgown up and let her fingers do the walking. For the first time her mystery man had a face and it appeared identical to her former student and current worker’s. And he delivered an earth shaking climax to her after which she sank into a contented sleep.
In fact Julie slept so soundly that she snoozed right through her alarm clock (yes, an old fashioned kind) and it was the ringing of her doorbell which awakened her the next morning. She pulled her nightgown down though she clearly remembered doing that last night before again going to sleep. She rushed downstairs and threw open the front door to see John standing there looking gorgeous holding two cups of coffee.
“Sorry I’m running late” she said “have to hurry.”
Julie left him at the door and ran up the stairs in a panic on her way to the shower. She took a quick one then brushed her teeth and practically bolted out the door. Unfortunately at that moment John was carrying a box from the attic and had just emerged into the hall. They collided though John managed to turn his body lessening the impact with the only casualty being that Julie’s robe which hadn’t been fastened securely came somewhat undone.
John had been about to apologize when his jaw dropped as he caught a glimpse of Julie’s charms - two small and perfectly shaped breasts topped with bubble gum colored nipples. He managed to close his mouth and turn away. Mortified from what had just happened Julie pulled her robe together and fled without a word to her room where she swiftly dressed.
Fortunately for her he remained in the attic allowing Julie to slip out of the house with the tattered shreds of her dignity. By the table near the front door sat a cup of coffee with a sticky note labeled Julie. She took it in passing as she left. In between figuratively kicking herself as she drove, Julie took some comfort in the thought of John bringing her the coffee which then triggered her embarrassment anew.
She just made it to class before the first period bell rang and she was not at her best. Since it was Thursday that allowed her to tell the class to review their lessons to prepare for the following day’s exam. She sat there seemingly going over her own notes and lesson plans while actually replaying the scene over and over. That would have been bad enough but it actually started to arouse her knowing that John had seen her breasts. No man had since her college days when finally freed of her mother’s control she had actually lived life a tiny bit.
There had been mixing with the opposite sex and dates with college boys and even a couple of short term boyfriends during those four years. It was when she had lost her prized virginity, taken during a frat party when she had one too many glasses of spiked punch. The worst thing about it was she barely remembered the actual incident but it was also the last time she heard from Kyle who had deflowered her. Still she hadn’t let that stop her from continue trying to live life.
About that night she vaguely remembered there had been some pleasure involved on her part which she wished to experience again. Unfortunately the next boy she dated named Harold had been more than willing to sleep with her but he had not a clue when it came to a woman’s erogenous zones. Fumbling clumsily with her breasts a moment as he positioned himself was the extent of foreplay and once he was in her he would thrust weakly for a couple of minutes before pulling out and ejaculating on her aroused yet unsatisfied body.
On a few occasions she had delicately tried to broach the subject of her enjoyment, or lack thereof with him, only for him to respond that any girl who thought in such a way must be a slut. Since that was the last thing that Julie wished to appear as, she let the matter drop. They continued to date until the end of the semester at which time he informed her that he had transferred to a college closer to home and they wouldn’t be seeing each other again.
Maybe she should have been offended but truthfully Julie felt relieved. The thought of continuing to date and maybe one day marry Harold left her cold. He was smart and not bad looking but he was dry and boring with a very narrow view of things. In no uncertain terms he’d informed her that no wife of his would work and she had set her sights on becoming a teacher. Even worse was the thought of years of marital relations when her desires would get scant attention.
That had been the full extent of her sex life. Once she’d returned home after college her mother had reasserted her control, not that the men had been breaking down the door to get to her. Still from then on Julie dressed and conformed to what her mother thought was proper. The skirts she had worn in college that ended just above the knee were thrown out as they were too revealing even to be donated to charity. Julie had retreated back into her shell and the only time she felt alive was when she tried to impart her love of literature and poetry to successive classes of students.
It was when Lauren had joined the staff and befriended the painfully introverted English teacher that again Julie felt a yearning for something more. Of course by then her mother was in poor health which gave her another means to control her daughter but though Julie complied she lived vicariously through Lauren. They would talk and tell each other everything though as Julie confessed she didn’t have much to reveal. Still it was from Lauren that she learned about masturbation and that there was nothing wrong with a woman achieving orgasm. And now Julie couldn’t wait for lunch so that she could again confide in and ask advice of Lauren.
She was waiting anxiously at their regular table when her friend breezed in. Right away she sensed that Julie was on edge as she sat down by the way her eyes were darting around and by the fact she was continuously twisting and untwisting a strand of her long brown hair.
“Okay spill it! I can tell something’s bothering you Jules.”
“I really made a fool of myself this morning and I’m hoping you can do me a big favor” she began. “Is there a chance you can come with me to my house after school?”
Lauren raised an eye brow at the suggestion and shook her head.
“Julie, Julie what have you done that you need my protection for?”
“Well not really protection, well maybe a little, but more for moral support.”
Julie proceeded to tell Lauren everything from how she had dreamt about John and actually relieved her stress fantasizing about him and her to where she overslept because of that and up to the point where her robe opened revealing her breasts to him.
“I don’t know how I’m going to face him again and the job has just started” she concluded.
Lauren had listened to everything her friend said with a mixture of amusement and concern and thought a few minutes before replying.
“If you want Julie I’ll come with you but in my opinion you should go alone. It doesn’t matter if it goes anywhere. You should just get some. How many years has it been? Go have fun.”
“No I can’t. Lauren you’re right that I need it and all but I can’t. Just throw myself at him I mean. Especially after what happened this morning. Come over to pick something up and that way I won’t be alone with him because he’ll leave once I get there.”
“Fine if that’s what you want.”
That afternoon Lauren followed behind her friend’s car as she drove home. The two of them entered the house together and John soon came downstairs. He was sweaty and dirty but he smiled when he saw them.
“Hey Julie how are you?” he asked and his eyes narrowed when he saw Lauren. “Hey I know you, don’t I?”
“Hello Johnny, I’m Lauren and you hung out with my sister Trish back in the day.”
“That’s right, how is she doing? I haven’t seen her or really a lot of the old crowd since I got back to town.”
“She’s good, married now with a little boy. They live over in Andersonville a few miles away.”
“Let me get you that book” Julie said to Lauren as she slipped away. As she headed upstairs she heard the two of them gaily chatting about the past. When she came down she handed Lauren her lesson plan book though she had been carrying it the whole time with her.
“Thanks Jules and I’ll see you tomorrow. Nice seeing you again Johnny, I’ll be sure to let Trish know you’re back in town.”
“Yeah cool Lauren, I better go now as well and let Julie have her house. Goodnight Julie. ”
She closed the door behind them and watched as they walked to the street where they both were parked. They talked for a minute more before climbing into their vehicles and driving off. The next morning Julie made sure she was up early and in fact she was ready to leave before he even arrived. When he did she attempted to hurry past when he stopped her.
“Julie before you go we need to talk.”
“Okay” she said with her heart in her throat, dreading what he might say.
“Well I’m kind of at an impasse with the work. Until you let me know what windows you want done and which rooms to paint first, as well as the colors, then I’m almost out of work. I have a few more hours’ worth and that’s it. We really have to discuss it.”
“Sure no problem, I understand John. After school today we’ll talk” Julie answered, relieved that was what he wanted to talk about. “See you later, have to go.”
With that she was gone leaving John alone. He shrugged helplessly as he really wished to talk about more than that but wasn’t sure how to broach the subject. It was fairly obvious that after yesterday morning Julie was uncomfortable around him. He could understand it especially given her shy nature but it had been weighing on him as well. Last night all he could think of was the sight of her naked breasts and how much he wanted to suck on them.
He hadn’t lied when he told her he studied her back when he was a student. Julie was a lot more attractive than she gave herself credit for he thought and though she did her best to conceal the fact, her slender body was sexy as hell to him. Plus he fondly remembered the way her face would get wistful or passionate when she would read certain poems back in class, usually a love poem by one of her favorites. It was true he wanted to stay in town due to his father but the other reason John took the job was he hoped now that he was older he might have an opportunity to tell her how he felt and maybe have a chance with her.
Since there was nothing to be done about it until later John went to work. He finished removing the remaining unwanted items before noon, leaving him precious little to do. He next took accurate measurements of all the downstairs windows in case she wished to replace them. Finally he measured the windows upstairs including in the bathroom as well as in Julie’s mother’s room and the spare bedroom which was used as a storage room. Her bedroom he avoided as he didn’t wish to invade her privacy in that way with how things were at the moment.
John killed time playing with Emily for some time, dragging a string across the floor and watching the cat pursue it until finally the feline got bored and wandered off to take a nap in a sunny window. When Julie arrived that afternoon she was surprised to see John sitting on the porch next door sipping lemonade with the Russell’s. They waved to her and she returned the greeting but she made no move to join them instead standing at the curb with her arms folded.
“Time for me to go it seems, thanks for the lemonade folks” John said as he rose from the wicker chair.
“You’re welcome anytime John and you let Julie know the same. Here we are next door neighbors and we rarely talk to her these days” Edna told him as he departed.
Once he reached her at the sidewalk Julie made a sour face before asking “So what’s up with the busybodies next door, trying to squeeze you for information about me?”
John kept his face serene as he answered her. “No, not really Julie. I mean the other day when they first saw me they asked if I was doing work ‘in the Jones house’ but I think that’s kind of normal under the circumstances. They see some strange guy moving stuff out of your house and all.”
“Yeah okay but you have no idea how nosy they can be. That’s why Mother planted the hedge after we moved in so it made it harder for them to spy on us.”
“I think it’s good for neighbors to watch out for each other’s houses. By the way they told me to tell you that you’re always welcome there.”
Julie rolled her eyes from that little tidbit and John couldn’t help smiling at her reaction as he expected something along those lines from her. They had moved up her walk as they talked and now went inside. Emily was no where in sight and it had been a while since he had seen her.
“So have you made any decisions on the windows Julie?”
“I’ve decided that it makes sense to do them all now. I have the money available so what’s the point in doing some now and then doing more down the road. I’m not sure what style to get yet though.”
“I think you’re making the right decision Julie. And as far as the style, you take a look at the styles and costs and decide from there. You might get some of a cheaper model for some rooms and nicer ones for others. Personally since you have an older house with nice woodwork I’d suggest you get the kind where the interior section is wood and the exterior is vinyl so it blends in seamlessly in appearance. Some have built in lattices or other features but they add to the cost so it’s up to you. I took the liberty of measuring most of the windows as I ran out of work earlier. I just need the dimensions of your bedroom windows.”
They proceeded upstairs where he took the measurements as she stood just inside the room. A few minutes later they were again on the street where John unlocked his passenger door to allow Julie to get in. As they drove he figured now was the best time to broach the subject.
“About yesterday morning Julie, I apologize. If I had waited until you left before starting to work…”
“No John, it wasn’t your fault. If I was watching where I was going instead of rushing blindly into you like that, so no apology is necessary and we won’t mention it again.”
He knew there was no way he could forget what he saw even if he never mentioned it but he held his tongue - for the moment at least. With a sidelong glance he noticed that Julie’s face was red as a beet so he continued to keep his face turned straight ahead as he drove.
“You have an idea of what color paints you want?”
“Uh huh, for the most part.”
“Well then you just have to decide what rooms you want done first. If you want I can work tomorrow and get a number of windows done if they have them in stock which will allow you to have the rooms painted according to your schedule. I figure when I paint your room you might want to sleep somewhere else for a night or two because of the smell.”
“I’ll think about it but I probably want my room done first if that’s okay” she said softly.
“Whatever you want Julie.”
Things worked out well at the home improvement mega-store. She was able to get all the paint colors she wanted and they actually had some of the windows she chose in stock. The bathroom window wasn’t available as it was an odd size and the glass needed to be opaque but the rest of the second story windows and the paint were soon loaded in his truck. On their way back John decided to try something.
“Julie, with all this running around what do you say I take us to dinner? There’s a nice Italian place coming up and we can work out a timeframe for the work as we eat. What do you think?”
Her initial thought was to say no but instead she surprised them both with her reply.
“All right but I insist that we split the cost.”
“Fine if that’s what you want” he said with a big smile, just happy that she accepted his offer.
They settled in and ordered dinner. At first they discussed what rooms she wanted tackled first with her bedroom the number one priority followed by the kitchen. As the meal went on however talk turned to other subjects aided no doubt by the carafe of wine John ordered. Julie learned that he had been living in Las Vegas before his recent return to town.
“Things were booming at first when I went out there, there was construction everywhere. When things went south I still did all right for a while as the company I was with had some contracts with the big developers or on government subsidized jobs but after a while the jobs were completed and the new ones weren’t coming in like before. Work started becoming infrequent and soon I was just looking to do anything to tide me over.”
“If I had been able to dance I’d have been able to earn money but unfortunately I have two left feet so that didn’t work out. I actually worked with a magic act where I stood on stage with no shirt and I’d assist the woman who would be levitated or sawed in half. Me and another guy would lift her or help her get into position in the box or whatever. Lousy pay and hours and certainly no future in it though the work was easy. So that was my career in showbiz. Things got worse after that and I knew I needed a change.”
“Then my uncle contacted me letting me know my Dad wasn’t doing too well. Of course he never would have let me know himself. Since my sister moved to Florida with my Mom when my parents divorced there really wasn’t anyone here but my uncle. So I came back and here I am.”
“Wow I never could have done that” Julie replied “just moving halfway across the country to where I didn’t know anyone or anything about the place and to Las Vegas too. Was it like in the movies?”
“Well there are all kinds of movies and it is more than one place too. There’s the strip and the casinos and hotels but for the most part that’s a desert mirage unless you live in that world. There’s also the real part where most of the people live and work. Besides I missed the seasons changing like they do here. The desert is beautiful in a way but I like to see the leaves change and even the first snowfall.”
They sat silently after that for a few minutes until the server came and asked if they needed anything further.
“Just the check please” he answered.
On the way to her house he took a couple of quick peeks at her face and her eyes were shining as brightly as the stars. When they arrived he began unloading as Julie opened the front door. Once everything was inside John paused to ask Julie a question before leaving.
“So since I’ll be back tomorrow what time should I come? I know its Saturday and I figure you want to sleep late.”
“Honestly I get up at the same time on weekends John so come whenever you want. I’ve been putting off tackling Mother’s room as I’ve been dreading it but I can’t anymore if you’re going to paint it and replace the windows. So don’t bother with bringing coffee, I’ll make some and breakfast as well. Deal?”
“Deal” he answered.
She opened the front door and stood leaning against it as he passed by. John turned to say good night to her when something he read in her expression caused him to change his mind. Suddenly he leaned in and brought his mouth to hers. Her lips were soft and yielding and he found himself kissing her with passion. For the first few seconds Julie had remained passive but as time passed she responded fiercely. Her arms twined about his neck and she eagerly returned his kiss and in fact it was her tongue that slipped into his mouth where it tentatively explored.
John’s arm wrapped around her back and pulled her body to his and he thrilled from the feel of her pressing against him for the first time. In fact it had too much of an effect as he felt himself began to harden. Not wishing to move too fast and scare her John reluctantly broke the kiss before it was too late. He gazed down at her and as he watched she opened her brown eyes and stared back at him.
“Wow Julie” he said “that was something else.”
“Yes it was, very nice I think” she said as she continued to press her body against his “and I think I feel the something else.”
After saying that for a moment she gyrated her pelvis to his leaving no doubt about what she was talking about but she then took a step back and grabbed the door for support.
“Good night John and I’ll see you in the morning” she told him before slowly closing the door.
He stood there for a minute as his mind whirled from what had just happened before he headed to the truck. It seemed to him that his feet didn’t touch the ground until he climbed in the cab. For her part Julie was experiencing similar emotions, in fact when Emily came to say hello Julie lifted the puzzled cat up and danced with her in her arms as she sang a song.
With it still being early and him being pumped up John didn’t wish to return home yet so he stopped off at the local watering hole. As he sipped his drink John replayed the kiss over and over in his mind and enjoyed it a little more each time. It was when the waitress came over to see if he wanted another round and mildly flirted with him that he realized he should go home. He politely declined and left her a nice tip as he headed out. No sense in taking a chance on being stupid when it appeared he had an opportunity of a lifetime awaiting him. His father was surprised he was home so early but he told him he had to work early the following day.
The next morning John was up at the crack of dawn and had to restrain himself from rushing out the door. He shaved deliberately and actually put on more cologne than he would going out for the night. He fought to take his time and not arrive too early. Finally at eight a.m. he couldn’t wait any longer and headed over. True to her word Julie was up when he arrived and opened the door shortly after he rang.
John swallowed hard when he saw her wearing a cute little girly-t showing her arms and a snug fitting pair of jeans with her long hair pulled back in a pony tail. As he entered the aroma of coffee brewing wafted across the air to his receptive nostrils.
“Come to the kitchen” she told him leading the way.
For his part he was glad to follow as for the first time he was able to observe her cute, little butt not hidden under a loose skirt or sweatpants and he strongly approved.
“Sit down and I’ll get you some coffee John. How do you take it and is eggs and bacon good?”
“Black, one sugar please. Yes that’s fine Julie, thanks” John said as he slid into a seat in the cozy little kitchen.
A minute later she placed the cup before him then slipped an apron over her head and tied it before beginning to cook breakfast.
“Did you have a good night’s rest?” he inquired as he lifted his cup.
“Yes wonderful, I feel very refreshed, and you?”
“I had a hard time falling asleep truthfully. No matter what I did I felt just too excited to relax. I couldn’t wait for the morning.”
“Oh!” Julie said and he noticed the blood rise to her face.
They ate in an awkward silence, filling their mouths between longing stares and meaningful glances. Once she was finished Julie rose and started to clean up the dishes. When John was done he headed out to his truck to retrieve his compound miter saw, tools, wood and some tarps.
He set up the saw on a tarp in the garage and headed upstairs and after placing a tarp under a window in her room John went to work removing the old one. Things proceeded smoothly and he was on the second window when she stopped in the doorway to say hello.
“I see you’re busy and getting things done so I won’t bother you now. I’m just off to work on clearing Mother’s room so I’ll see you later” and with that she was off.
He continued his work and as the morning progressed he made good progress. John was now caulking around the second of the newly installed windows when he was startled by a loud cry and the sound of something crashing onto the floor. Immediately he dropped what he was doing and hurried to where the noise came from.
He found her standing by the closet door of her mother’s room clutching some yellowed envelopes in her hand while an old and now broken cardboard box sat nearby with its contents spilling onto the hardwood floor. She turned as he entered the room and he read shock and pain clearly on her face.
“Julie are you hurt?” he asked with the concern sounding plainly in his voice.
“No it can’t be, it just can’t. How is this possible?” Julie wailed and as she stood there her eyes welled up with tears which began to roll down her face.
“Do you need help Julie?” he asked, unsure of what to do and unaware of what had caused this reaction.
“How could she do this to me John? Why would she do it, to lie to me my whole life like that? What did I do to deserve this?”
Sobbing uncontrollably she fled past him and into the hall. As she did Julie dropped one of the envelopes to the floor in passing. He watched as she ran down the hall and into her room. Prompted by the idea that there must be a clue to her sudden mood lying there John bent down and lifted the envelope up. It was unsealed and a card was partially sticking out of it.
When he scanned the writing on the front of the envelope he saw it was addressed to Miss Julie Jones and the address was not only in another town but in another state. He noticed that the postmark was from over twenty five years ago. He removed the card and saw it was a girl’s birthday card. Opening it he read the handwritten message which was longer than most cards contained.
To My Princess Julie:
Happy Birthday sweetie and I hope you’re well and your big day goes great. A girl doesn’t turn ten everyday so it truly is special. Sorry I’m not there with you but your mother informs me you still aren’t ready to see me again.
I wish you would let me talk to you Julie, we used to be so close. I know you’re hurt about what happened between your mother and I but that has nothing to do with us. I don’t want to make you sad so I’ll say no more now except to tell you how much I love you and whenever you want I’ll be waiting. Happy Birthday again Julie! And don’t spend all the money on candy.
As John returned the card to the envelope he saw that there was a neatly folded twenty dollar bill enclosed. Placing the envelope on a table near the door he headed to Julie’s room. Cautiously he peered in and saw Julie huddled on her bed sobbing softly. He couldn’t bear to see her like that so he slowly approached her until he stood by the side of the bed. His hand reached out and gently touched her shoulder. She turned her face to him but he appeared blurry through her tears. Sitting next to her on the bed John spoke.
“Are you all right?”
“No I’m not” she practically screamed in reply “all my life has been a lie. All these years I thought my Father had abandoned me, that he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. That’s what she told me and I believed her, the lying bitch!”
He was shocked as not only had he never heard her use foul language before, but back when he was in school people used to joke about how proper and polite she was. It was so out of character he didn’t have any idea on how to reply to it.
“A lie, all a lie! No wonder we moved around so much back then, she was trying to hide us, to hide me from my Father! Why Mother, why?” Julie cried out in anguish.
Unable to think of anything else to do John wrapped his muscular arms around her and hugged her to him. She pressed her face to his chest and continued sobbing and after a minute her arm encircled his waist tightly. His hand stroked her hair soothingly and he murmured in her ear.
“It’s alright Julie, go ahead and get it out. That’s it you just cry sweetie and let it all out.”
How long they stayed like that he had no idea but slowly her crying lessened then ended. Through it all he continued to stroke her hair and whisper encouragement. Finally with a loud sniffle she removed her face from his chest. He gazed at her and saw her eyes were still wet with tears but her sobbing had stopped.
“Julie would you like a nice cup of tea?”
“Yes please” she replied before adding “Oh John I got your shirt all wet, I’m so sorry.”
He laughed at her concern over such a trivial matter before reassuring her.
“Don’t be silly Julie and worry about that. It will dry, now how do you take your tea?”
“With lemon and honey” she managed to get out.
“Okay wait right here and I’ll be back.”
He headed downstairs and put on the kettle and as he waited he absentmindedly fed Emily. It seemed inconceivable to him that someone would deceive in the way Julie’s mother had but the evidence was clear and so was her reaction to it. He couldn’t imagine what she must have been going through at that moment finding out that since she was a little girl she’d been lied to and about something so important. It was the kettle whistling that had roused him from his musings so he hurried to the stove.
Two minutes later he was again entering her room where he found her now curled on the bed fast asleep. Not wishing to disturb her he left the cup on her bedside table and tiptoed out of the room. Unfortunately that left him with no work to do as the other rooms upstairs weren’t prepped. Silently he closed the door and went back to her mother’s room.
He gathered together all the spilled letters and papers and put them on the bed, glancing at them as he did so. There were many cards and letters all written in the same neat handwriting and all addressed to Julie. There were multiple addresses on them confirming that they had moved around a staggering amount of times before finally settling in Juneberry. He shook his head again at the thought of what had happened to her.
He went downstairs for a little while but with no work he headed outside. After seeing her car sitting in the driveway he decided the least he could do was to wash it. He wound up wet from that but her little car gleamed when he was done. After going back inside John decided to check on her so he returned to her room. Julie was on her back now and had a peaceful expression on her face and was breathing quietly. He sat on a chair by the bed and watched her chest rise and fall gently.
The shadows were lengthening on the walls when Julie rolled to her side before stretching the full length of her lithe body before then sitting up. She looked around like she was confused until she discovered him sitting silently nearby. Then her face brightened immeasurably and Julie smiled. It wasn’t a full smile but it still warmed his heart.
“Hi” she whispered as she stood.
“How are you feeling?” he asked while intending to get up as well but she prevented him by unexpectedly sitting on his lap.
“Better, not one hundred percent but better than I was. I had a nice dream and when I woke up it came true because you were here. Thank you for that Johnny.”
Then before he could answer and truthfully before he even thought of a reply Julie leaned in and kissed him. Sparks flew as their lips met again. Both had a strong hunger for each other which could not be sated easily. Her fingers ran through his hair as they continued kissing and soon their tongues were twined together. Julie shifted her body until she felt his hardening member push into her at which point she settled on top of it provoking a muffled groan from John. His arm circled her tiny waist and pulled her to him where she encountered his still damp shirt.
“What happened John?” she exclaimed after reluctantly breaking their kiss “I know I cried on you before but I didn’t do all that, did I?”
“No silly, I got a little wet washing your car.”
“Ooh, how sweet that you did that for me Johnny. But I think you should take it off so it can dry” she said with a gleam in her eye that John believed had nothing to do with his shirt drying.
He smiled as he pulled the shirt over his head and tossed it aside. Julie stared appreciatively at his bare, muscular chest then reached out and touched it. Her fingers sent shockwaves across his body from his head to his toes though he felt them most in his swollen groin. His arm wrapped around Julie again pulling her close and now his lips found her neck and it was her turn to shudder.
“Oh my God Johnny” she gasped as his teeth gently closed on her sensitive skin.
His free hand stroked her cheek as he worked down to her nape and as he did his hand traveled downward as well. Soon it was pressing against her covered bosom which made Julie moan with desire. His mouth found hers and pressed to her full lips until she couldn’t take it anymore. With an inarticulate cry she broke their clinch and stood. John looked at her questioningly but she held up a hand to stay him before her hands found the hem of her shirt and raised it over her head.
This time he gasped as the flesh of her torso was exposed to his gaze and when she reached back and unhooked her brassiere revealing her breasts to him he could hardly contain himself.
“Wait Johnny” she told him before tossing the bra on his tented lap.
She smiled seductively as her fingers went to her waistband and within seconds she was wriggling them past her hips. Once they were past her knees John was unable to wait longer and moved. He rose sending her bra to the floor and scooped her into his strong arms. Julie giggled as he swept her off her feet and in the matter of a step and a half he was placing her on top of her bed. John kissed her then moved down and untied and removed her sneakers followed by her jeans. While continuing to hold her legs in the air by her ankles he pulled her tiny socks off then started to kiss her feet.
“Stop that tickles” Julie said as he sucked on her pinky toe while his tongue rolled against it.
“All right, as you wish” he said before spreading her legs into a V.
With a quick move his body bent at the waist so his face was just inches from her covered mound. He blew his hot breath over Julie causing her to squirm slightly before quickly turning and softly biting her inner thigh. She shrieked in response to that but John had already released her ankles as he launched himself onto the bed landing on top of her. There was a creak and a shudder and the mattress sank down at an angle before with a final tearing sound it fell to the floor.
For a moment they didn’t make a sound but once their eyes met and wordlessly confirmed they were unscathed the two of them burst into laughter. However in their current position that didn’t last long as they again kissed and this time he pressed his body into hers. Julie spread her legs wide allowing John easy access as he rubbed his jean covered loins against her. Resting on his elbows and knees John ground against Julie while his lips again found her swanlike throat.
While biting progressively harder he increased the speed of his hips. Her moans were increasing in frequency and intensity when he managed to find her breast with his left hand. She cried out and her legs wrapped around his as her body stiffened. Her breathing stopped for a second as she had been so caught off guard by her orgasm but it resumed immediately as she sucked oxygen into her lungs.
“Johnny” she cried out.
“Yes baby cum for me” he hissed in her ear in reply.
Julie’s fingers dug into his muscled back as he didn’t cease his movement though he had slowed down considerably from earlier. Julie’s breathing returned to normal as he continued gyrating against her but her hands were now attempting to tug his pants down.
“You’re being bad Johnny, take these off” Julie complained petulantly.
“Ha, who are you to talk?” he replied before he abruptly pushed his body into a kneeling position between her thighs.
Meeting her eyes his hands found the waistband to her panties and ripped. With a tear they split in the front showing her curly, brown pubic hair. He continued until they were in pieces which he scattered as he pulled them free. For a moment Julie was overcome by shyness and closed her eyes to his while a hand covered her crotch. But then her eyes opened and she smiled as her hand moved away.
“You sure about this Julie” he asked.
She nodded before speaking. “As much as I can be Johnny. I’ve always done what I was told to or what I should do. I want to do this and it feels right. Now tell me John, do you want me? I don’t mean do you want to…fuck…me” she swallowed after saying this “do you want ME? Because if you want to just fuck me, you can but…”
“Sshh” he said pressing his finger to her lips “Yes Julie, since you were my teacher and I fell in love with you every time you read a poem. Since then I’ve wanted you.”
They kissed after this but John still desired to taste all of her so he broke the kiss and his lips grazed her soft skin slowly working their way past her collarbone until he found her coral pink nipple. His mouth circled it and his tongue flicked it in a circular motion. John sucked as much of her small breast into his mouth as would fit though he was unable to take it all.
She actually pulled his hair but he scarcely noticed as he continued to suck on her, reveling in the taste of Julie’s skin. He pulled his mouth off only to fasten it to her previously neglected one. But by now Julie was becoming impatient and tried to push him from her.
“Oh come on Johnny, I want you in me” she pleaded.
“Soon Julie” he answered after releasing her breast.
He put the tip of his tongue on the skin between her mounds and trailed it down in a zigzag pattern until he circled her navel with a flourish. John scooted his body further down the mattress so that his head was again between her creamy thighs but this time no barrier remained. His eyes found hers as he extended his tongue and tasted her.
Her lips were already sticky as his tongue ran the full length of her pink slit. Her scent overpowered him as he probed her wetness, lashing Julie repeatedly until she begged him to stop. He then used his index fingers to spread her slightly so that he could work his tongue inside her now. John drove it as deep as it could reach before beginning to twirl it around and the whole time he kept his eyes locked on Julie. During this he kept his nose pressing her clit which had wet brown hair directly above it. When John started to move his head slightly in a side to side manner it again proved too much for her long repressed desire.
Julie seized his hair with both hands as her body bucked beneath him keeping his tongue trapped in her, not that he minded in the slightest. Her juices coated his face from his nose down by now as she flowed copiously on him. When her spasms subsided enough to allow it he retracted his tongue and lifted his face.
“You taste great Julie, here taste yourself” he told her as his body moved up so he could kiss her.
She turned away but he persisted until their lips met. She had used the opportunity however to grab his pants and after undoing them and his belt she wrestled them down far enough that his long imprisoned cock was free. Wasting no time she then grasped his head which was slick with pre-cum and guided it toward her opening.
“Put it in me, please” Julie said as her long legs encircled his waist.
His body shifted enough that his large head now pressed to her entrance at which time he reached down and grabbed it right below the head. John pushed forward and slowly the tip parted her lips and started to work its way in. She brought her knees back toward her chest which improved his angle allowing the head to sink inside her pink paradise. They both cried out from the feeling and now that his head had gained access he steadily sank deeper though it was still slow going.
John had no idea how long he’d last with the sensations he was experiencing. He felt like his cock was in a vise because Julie was so tight. It had been many years since she had more than her slender fingers in her channel though the plentiful natural lubrication had greatly assisted. Finally he managed to slide his last thick inch in her as his balls brushed her skin.
Again John waited as Julie’s tight pussy adjusted to his intrusion but it helped him as much if not more than her. Just being encased in her wetness without moving was almost too much to take without exploding. When her hands grabbed his ass and attempted to pull him deeper it overwhelmed his senses. He gasped and a second later his head fired its first shot of white deep in her. The pleasure was so great that John almost cried with relief as he thoroughly irrigated her canal with all the white, sticky cum that discharged from his balls.
“Oh Johnny, that feels so hot, you’re shooting in me” Julie said as she felt his seed fill her.
“Wow, I’m sorry Julie, usually I don’t cum so fast but you have me so wound up. Plus you are so tight it’s incredible.”
Now with the immediate pressure relieved due to his orgasm John slowly slid out of Julie, keeping just his mushroom head in. He then reversed course and drove all the way back forcing a gasp out of her. His cum mingled with her juices made the going easier and aided John as he thrust in and out of her tight pussy. He supported his body with his elbows as he repeatedly filled her depths only to pull back again.
The position allowed him to reach her breast with his mouth and John took her erect nub between his lips. He flicked it in a back and forth rhythm which drove Julie crazier than she already was. Her fingers clung to his glutes as they rose and fell with each thrust as animal like moans escaped her lips. Wishing to gain a more comfortable position John reluctantly pulled his full length from her as he managed to crouch his body on the floor beside the mattress.
“What’s the matter Johnny?” a clearly disappointed Julie inquired as she lay with her legs still in the air.
“Just trying to get comfortable” John answered as he scrambled to sit next to her where he proceeded to frantically undo his boots before removing them.
Next to go were his pants that had sat by his knees during the earlier activity. He grabbed Julie and rolled her onto her stomach before delivering a light swat to her cute butt.
“Come on Julie, get on your knees” he told her as he again crouched just past the mattress.
Once she managed to move her body into the new position he rubbed his rock hard erection along her wet furrow a number of times sending waves of pleasure across her body. He placed one hand on her ass to steady himself and once ready John drove his full hard length in her pinkness.
“Oh God” she cried out as in this position he seemed to reach deeper than before.
While keeping his first hand on her, he used his free hand to take hold of her long brown ponytail and pulled enough that Julie arched both her back and neck to relieve the pressure. His body slapped hers with each thrust making a fleshy sound as they repeatedly collided.
“Let me see your beautiful face Julie” he instructed and she managed to turn so he could behold her countenance.
His hand released her hair and then slid below her torso where he took hold of her small, sensitive breast.
Julie moaned from the added stimulation and in response she began to push her hips back in time with his forward thrusts. As this continued John moved his hand from her breast down past her tummy and over her nest of pubic hair until his searching fingers located her erect little clit. His index finger circled it incessantly until her moans blended together into one long drawn out sound and he felt her vaginal walls spasm and contract on his driving member.
John stopped moving as Julie came on his cock to prevent his own orgasm from happening and instead tried to think non-sexual thoughts. Which was much easier said then done when he had a screaming, moaning woman climaxing and clamping hard on him. Somehow he managed to not cum and rode out the storm.
Julie’s face was still turned to him and it was now streaked with perspiration from her energetic coupling and to his eyes she’d never looked sexier as she wore a wanton expression. She was still trembling as her body came down somewhat from her orgasmic high and the fact that John’s finger had never stopped stroking her kept her on edge. Finally unable to maintain her position Julie’s upper half sank down until her face rested on the mattress.
Only then did he stop moving his finger and in fact he now took her waspish waist with both hands and started to thrust again. His thighs collided with her supple butt with each stroke and he again marveled at how her pretty pussy squeezed his shaft like a glove. By now her upper thighs as well as his loins were covered by her juices which still flowed from her like a spring.
Catching him by surprise Julie extended her long arm back between her legs and lifted it up so her warm hand could take hold of John’s balls. That was the final straw and with a gasp he buried himself to his full length as he felt his shaft swell from the approaching climax.
“Uuuhnn, damn Julie you’re making me cum again” he gasped out as the first jet of cum shot out like a rocket into her waiting pussy.
Since he had cum only a short while earlier his discharge was less plentiful than before but with Julie’s soft hand encasing his trembling testicles it felt more pleasurable to him as each spurt erupted. She fondled them gently, feeling their contractions as he fired deep inside her. They were both at their physical limit and needed to catch a breather and Julie released his balls as her lower body slid now down onto the mattress as well.
When that happened John’s softening cock popped free as the remaining sperm oozed out his pee hole. With an effort he managed to sprawl on the bed next to her at which time he rolled onto his back gasping for breath. Julie was able to roll onto her side with her body against his after which she rested her head on his chest. His hand stroked her hair slowly as their breathing resumed a normal rhythm.
They fell asleep like that as their bodies were exhausted from their energetic lovemaking and added to that was the stress that had taken place earlier in the day. Julie was the first to awaken at which time she discovered Emily had made herself comfortable between her and John’s legs. She was afraid to move, fearing that this all was nothing but a phantasm and if she did anything it would disappear.
However as she lay there Emily shifted into a ball, tickling Julie’s skin with her fur while at the same time she heard the steady heartbeat of John as her head rested on him. Shyly she reached down and her fingers encircled his flaccid member which sent a thrill through her. Not long ago it was so much bigger and harder than now and it had delivered pleasure the likes of which Julie had never experienced before. Slowly her fingers stroked it but when it started to stiffen and grow she quickly released it.
John groaned in his sleep and she felt him stirring next to her. Suddenly his eyes opened as she looked at him and a smile overtook his face. His hand reached out and he cupped her chin and tilted her face up a hair.
“Hey gorgeous, how you doing?”
“Since this isn’t a dream I’m doing wonderful” she told him “but what about you?”
“I feel great, maybe a little hungry. Hey I have an idea Julie, why don’t we order some pizza so we don’t have to go anywhere tonight.”
“Sounds wonderful Johnny, that is if you don’t have somewhere else to go” she replied in a quiet voice.
“Nah I can just call my Dad to make sure he’s okay” he answered before the meaning of her comment registered in his brain. “Understand this Julie, at this moment there is no place I’d rather be than where I am and that is next to you. For too many years I thought I’d never get this chance and there is no way I’m gonna mess it up, okay?”
He stared deeply in her eyes as he said this and he saw a flicker of doubt but it was overwhelmed by a wave of hope and she smiled at him sweetly.
“Okay I really want to believe you Johnny, no one has ever said something like that to me before. But gonna isn’t proper English.”
“No its not Miss Jones and I don’t care so you can correct me to eternity. In fact nothing would make me happier but I’m afraid right now I have to use the bathroom.”
After saying that he disentangled his body from hers and managed to get to his feet with Julie following suit. The two of them looked down at her twin mattress, now sitting on the floor with the headboard resting at a crazy angle against the wall.
“Wow we sure did a number on your bed Julie.”
“Well I guess that’s fate telling me to get a new bed.”
“Yeah and I’d say a bigger and stronger bed if its going to withstand what we’ll put it through.”
“Oohh, I plan on holding you to that promise Johnny” she said as she took her robe from the hook on the back of her door.
“Hold on a minute missy. Just what do you think you’re doing?” he said pulling the robe from her and re-hanging it.
“I was going to put my robe on…”
“No I forbid it Julie. I want to feast my eyes on you as you are.”
“But I’m naked” she protested weakly.
“Precisely and that’s how I want you” he said with a leer.
“Okay if you really want me to.”
She followed him into the bathroom where she greatly surprised him by standing behind him and then reached around and took hold of his soft member.
“What are you doing?” he asked puzzled by her actions.
“I’m going to help you pee silly” she told him as she had thought it would be fun to hold him as he went.
“All right but make sure you aim it good or there will be a mess.”
“Yes sir, I’ll do my best” Julie said before giggling.
When the yellow stream started she was temporarily caught off guard but she quickly adjusted and for her first time managed to do a good job, only allowing his initial flow to miss. When it stopped she shook it a few times like she knew men did from movies after which she daintily washed her hands.
John brought his pants downstairs with him so when the deliveryman came he could quickly pull them on. Once they were sitting in the kitchen to eat Julie insisted that he remove them so they were equal to which he had no problem. He finished eating first and once he did he rose from the table.
“Now its time for dessert” he told her before crouching next to her.
“Wait!” she cried out but it was already too late as he spun her chair allowing him access to her sweetest treat.
He pried her legs apart and ignored her protests to stop but instead ran his tongue from her clit down until he reached the wood of the chair and then back again. John slid his hands under her and pulled her forward and upward. With a hand on each cheek John lifted her pelvis off the chair then licked Julie starting at her puckered back hole and went across her perineum before running the length of her wet slit and ending at her erect little clit.
“Oh my goodness Johnny, what are you doing to me?” she gasped.
“I would think its pretty obvious and the best part is there are no calories” he said right before pushing his tongue in her and wriggling it around.
“Oh stop, wait, oh damn!” Julie cried out but John ignored her plea and instead continued to work his tongue as deep as was physically possible. His lips pressed to hers and his nose rubbed against her clit while he moved his head side to side stimulating her further. Julie rested her legs across his broad shoulders as John relentlessly ate her pink pussy. He so desired to bury himself in her but he also loved what he was doing and Julie tasted divine to him.
He persevered until she was again dripping and when a finger of his found her butt hole and tickled it lightly Julie could take no more. Her fingers grabbed his hair and she pushed her pelvis hard against his face as her body shook from the throes of passion. When her tremors ceased he pulled his face from her and winked before standing.
When he did she couldn’t help but to notice that his erection jutted out proudly and it swayed slightly as he moved his body. Taking her by the hand John helped Julie to stand and once she did he lifted and sat her at the edge of the kitchen table. She looked at him quizzically and he smiled in return. John stood right before her and took her legs and raised them in the air while also spreading them wide allowing himself unfettered access.
“Wait, you want to, here, on the kitchen table?”
“I want to everywhere with you Julie.”
He said this as he pushed his hard prick to her wet hole’s entrance where he rubbed his head to lubricate it further, then without pausing slid his full length in. His arms cradled her bent legs as he pulled back only to slam it all the way in her, much harder this time. Her hands gripped the edge of the table for support as John pumped her as hard as he was able to. John built up a rapid, steady rhythm that had Julie feeling great but there was something happening to her, a feeling she couldn’t explain and had never experienced before.
He jammed her with a number of short upward thrusts and she let out a shriek as she felt her internal floodgates open and a deluge of nectar stream from her. John pulled out as a gush of clear fluid squirted from her to land on the table and floor below. When it stopped he again pushed his erection back inside and resumed the same motion. It didn’t take long before she felt it happening again.
“Johnny whatever you’re doing to me, its happening again” she managed to gasp out before she was again overcome by the feeling of squirting.
This time he grunted but continued to pound her pinkness for all he was worth. He felt the fluid seep past his intruding cock but didn’t pause as he felt his own orgasm barreling closer. With a final thrust John’s member swelled up as the familiar feeling overtook him. Julie saw him close his eyes and shudder and the next thing she knew his cum was filling her up. When it stopped shooting his eyes opened and he smiled.
“Damn Julie, I can’t get enough of you.”
She felt her face redden after his declaration and for a moment she couldn’t meet his eyes when he moved a hand from her leg and stroked her cheek gently.
“Hey, a penny for your thoughts gorgeous.”
“I’m not gorgeous but if you want to think so, okay. I was wondering what I did to be so lucky Johnny, that’s all.”
“I was thinking the same thing gorgeous.”
She wrapped her hands around his neck and brought her lips to his and for a while that was the extent of their universe.
It was the sound of stealthy movement that awakened him and when he opened his eyes John saw Julie creeping toward the door dressed in her bathrobe.
“Hey where are you going?” he called out.
“I’m sorry I woke you John, I was heading to the shower to get ready for church.”
He kicked the covers off and stood naked as the day he was born and followed after her from her mother’s full size bed and into the hall.
“Wait up and I’ll come with you” he told her.
“I don’t have time now and I’ll be late if you come in the shower with me” she called back.
“Nonsense, with four hands you’ll be washed in half the time” he replied undeterred.
“But that will distract me at the least even if you’re good. And look at you” she said staring at his morning wood “with you like that we’ll be in there forever.”
“No I’ll be good Julie and what I meant was I’d go to church with you.”
She turned to him, surprised by his reply.
“Sure why not? If that’s where my baby is going then count me in.”
“You don’t have to, you know.”
“I know, now let’s get you washed.”
“No” she shrieked “if we’re going to be ready in time - separate showers.”
Julie slammed the door behind her and a moment later he heard the water go on.
It was late morning and they had just finished breakfast. As John sipped his remaining coffee Julie had started to wash the dishes. He placed the cup down and sidled behind her where he nuzzled her neck. She gasped and it became louder when his hand began to rub her leg.
“Hmmm, stop John, I’m trying to wash the dishes” she protested.
“And I’m trying to get you to do something else” he murmured as he now had her skirt raised to her waist.
Giving up on the dishes at least for the moment she turned and kissed him. His hands found and kneaded her buttocks as he pulled her body to his while they kissed. Finally she broke the kiss but she already felt his erection growing large.
“Johnny I have to tell you something” she began as his lips again found her neck.
For a moment she couldn’t speak and her knees went weak but with an effort she pushed him back a step.
“Wait for a second and don’t get mad at me.”
Suddenly he looked her in the eye with a puzzled expression on his face.
“Why would I get mad at you Julie? Tell me what’s up.”
“I’m sorry Johnny but it was a long time ago before yesterday that I was… intimate with someone and I’m really sore …down there. Don’t hate me.”
He laughed at her before replying.
“You be silly Julie. I can’t hate you and I’m sorry I did that to you. You tell me when it feels better, I can wait. My God, did you think I’d hold that against you, what type of guy do you think I am?”
“I think you’re a great guy but you seem to like sex a lot and already I’m not up to the job of pleasing you…”
“Stop that and besides it seems you like sex as well so what does that prove? Hopefully this will last and you’ll have years to please me. Besides once you start doing it more you’ll get used to it and your pussy muscles will become as tough as leather.”
“No they won’t, will they?” she wailed.
“Chill, I’m joking Julie” he said with a wink. “Now let me get to work as time’s a wastin’.”
“Don’t even think about it Johnny. Today is your day to rest so no work. Go relax, that’s an order.”
“Yes boss” he told her before saluting and leaving the room.
Julie found him sitting on the living room couch a few minutes later with Emily keeping him company. She lifted the startled kitty and plopped her on the floor. He raised an eyebrow in surprise as for the most part Emily had carte blanch around the house. When Julie knelt in front of him and began to rub his thighs sensuously he got the message.
“I thought you were sore…”
“I am but there’s more than one way to skin a cat, sorry Emily, just a figure of speech. Now you get those pants down mister.”
“Your wish is my command” he said as he struggled to comply while she continued to rub his leg. Once they were past his knees Julie reached out and wrapped her fingers around his rapidly swelling cock making him moan. When she put her mouth on him for the first time he was transported to paradise as her warm mouth took as much as she could fit inside. It’d been a lot of years since she’d performed fellatio and she was never very experienced at it but John didn’t care.
Just watching her lips move up and down his shaft as her eyes stayed locked on his was turning him on more than he could believe. When a hand cupped his balls he almost lost it but somehow he held on. Julie was now making little gurgling sounds as she bobbed her head up and down. He watched some saliva seep out the corner of her mouth and slide down his shaft until it reached the base where it rolled to and disappeared into his pubic hair. Knowing he wouldn’t last much longer if she continued John gently pulled her from him and stood.
“What’s the matter, did I do something wrong?” she asked.
“No you were doing it too well actually but I want to return the favor” he said leaning down and wrapping his arms around her and wrestling her body onto her back on the couch.
He yanked her skirt up and tugged at her panties until he removed them clear from her body. He kicked his boots off with his pants following. Then John straddled her head and guided his erection to her waiting mouth. Julie grabbed his cock and began to stroke the lower half as her tongue swirled around the head before she took it back in her mouth. He bent his body down and moved his face between her supple thighs.
He started by kissing the flesh of her inner thighs but he was unable to contain himself and soon his tongue was lashing her pink lips rapidly. Unfortunately for Julie she was unable to concentrate on what she was doing due to his efforts. As her pleasure grew she stopped sucking him although she managed to continue moving her hand along his hardness.
When he switched to sucking her clit she wasn’t even able to do that anymore. She was helpless as her body responded like gangbusters to his attention and when John’s tongue speared her clit as he continued sucking on it Julie lost it. Her body thrashed about while her hand squeezed him tightly. John held on as her hips bucked beneath him and didn’t stop until she begged him to.
“Please Johnny, no more. Its like torture, I can’t take it anymore.”
Reluctantly he pulled his face from her pussy, though not before licking its full length one more time. He then repositioned his body so he faced her while now straddling her chest. His hand brought his hard cock to her lips and when Julie opened them he thrust forward. Half his length slid in her warm mouth and he felt her tongue lick the sensitive underside as he did so. Slowly he started to rock his body back and forth causing his cock to go in and out between her lips.
Julie caught on quickly and began to suck hard on him as he moved and remembering how he liked her playing with his balls she again took them in her hand. He felt the pressure grow and he increased his tempo until he was past the point of no return.
“Julie I’m gonna cum” he told her intending to pull free but she had other plans.
Her head moved forward until his swollen head hit the entrance to her throat while her hand continued to fondle his testicles. He cried out as he felt the sperm flow through his shaft and into her eager mouth. Spurt after spurt hit the back of her mouth before she swallowed each down. When no more came Julie pulled her head back releasing him with a soft plopping sound but she now licked the head like an ice cream cone making him gasp from the feeling. Finally she released it and smiled up at him like an angel.
“Did you like that Johnny, did I do good?”
“You did great baby” he told her before leaning down and kissing her tenderly.
John continued the renovation work during the week while she went to school and once she arrived home he would go check on and visit with his father before returning to spend the night. When he had the opportunity John had gone on the internet and done some research but unfortunately the news was grim. It seemed Julie’s father had passed away four years ago and there would be no reunion but he had also discovered that she had some half-siblings that she never knew about. She was undecided on whether to contact them yet but at least Julie knew she did have some relatives out there.
On Friday morning she hadn’t driven to work, instead catching a ride with Lauren who was almost as happy as Julie on how things had turned out for her friend. The two of them were talking as they left school that afternoon and discussing what had transpired recently. This included the new hairstyle that Julie had just gotten during lunchtime that day.
“You sure Johnny will be here to meet you? I have no problem taking you home Jules.”
“No he told me he’d be here Lauren and so far everything he’s said he’s done. Are you sure about my hair looking good though? Is it too young for me?” Julie said as her fingers ran through her new shorter, sleeker hairstyle.
“Stop worrying, it looks awesome. I told you Stefanie was the best. Now its still long but its layered with a real style. Come on Julie, have I ever steered you wrong?”
“No, not that I know of Lauren, you’re the best.”
They had arrived at the lot now and Julie caught a glimpse of his black truck in the distance.
“I see him parked at the far end” she told Lauren “do you want to come say hello?”
“No you let him see the new you without me getting in the way. See you tomorrow Jules and kisses.”
“Bye” Julie said as she headed in his direction. She felt giddy as if she was a schoolgirl, in fact she never remembered feeling this happy when she was young. As she approached the truck she saw he wasn’t inside the cab but standing outside on the far side from the direction she was approaching. And she heard him talking to someone and it sounded like a female. Suddenly her fragile self-confidence plummeted and she wondered if it was to late to catch up with Lauren. Maybe the old Julie would have slunk away with her tail between her legs but she had toughened up a lot lately.
‘Don’t even think of turning around’ she told herself ‘whatever you are, you’re not a coward. You march right over there and see what’s going on.’
While she didn’t exactly march she continued heading in the proper direction though she tried to be quiet as possible and she took advantage of a minivan parked next to the truck to get closer while remaining unseen. She was able to now hear the voices clearly and not only did she hear Johnny but she recognized the other voice as belonging to Rachel Hughes.
“C’mon Johnny why not? If you’re worried about my brother don’t be. He’s been deployed overseas on his second tour so he’ll never know.”
“That has nothing to do with it Rach. But tell him hello from me if you talk to him and if you happen to have his e-mail…”
“I do but its home so that gives you a perfect reason to come over, and the best thing is my parents are both working now.”
Julie felt her eyes well with tears as Rachel did her best to lure Johnny into her web. How could she compete versus this young cheerleader Julie thought to herself when the sound of Johnny’s laughter came to her ears.
“You’re hilarious Rachel, let me tell you. Back when me and Brian were in school and you were still a kid he worried about you. Told me he’d caught older guys getting friendly with you and he had to straighten them out. It seems it should have been you he was straightening out.”
“I don’t deny I’m a bad girl Johnny but I’ve heard stories about you. They called you Johnny Forty-five and you got pretty wild yourself.”
“Yeah I had some fun but if you listen to what happened it was always me and my girlfriend at the time, not just some random girl.”
“I’ll be your girlfriend Johnny if that’s what it takes” Rachel said in a seductive voice.
“I’m flattered but I’m taken Rach, you’re too late.”
“ I’ll do things Johnny, anything you want me too. I’d have no limits when it comes to pleasing you.”
“Stop Rachel, you’re embarrassing yourself. This is the shit your brother should have nipped in the bud. I’m not interested, all right. Nice seeing you.”
“Yeah well fuck you Johnny!”
Julie heard the teen’s high heels click on the concrete as she stalked away angrily. Rachel passed within four feet of her teacher but she was so incensed that she didn’t even see her. While almost feeling bad for Rachel’s humiliation Julie was overjoyed at John’s utter rejection of her.
She now hurried toward the truck as fast as her legs could take her. John had just walked to the front of the truck when he saw her approaching rapidly. He stretched his arms wide and Julie launched herself into them before showering his face with kisses. One of his strong hands cradled her chin as he kissed her hello. It lasted for a long time and his free hand had palmed her butt before it was over.
After initially storming off Rachel had thought of an even harsher rejoinder for Johnny and had retraced her steps with the intention of delivering it to him. She was certainly not prepared for the sight that awaited her instead. Her jaw dropped when she saw Miss fucking Jones kissing and being mauled by Johnny Forty-five, the lucky bitch!
When they finally broke their embrace John walked Julie to the passenger door and closed it behind her before climbing in his own side. As they drove past Julie couldn’t resist waving good bye to a stunned Rachel though she did feel bad about it later.
“Hey Julie baby, you looked great before but I like the new do. How did you manage to arrange that during school?” he asked cheerfully.
“During lunch, Lauren set up the appointment with her regular girl. Do you really like it? You can tell me if you don’t, I won’t mind.”
“No it suits you but I don’t think you’d look bad no matter what haircut you get but I admit I’m biased.”
Julie snuggled up to him as he drove and rested her head on his shoulder.
A lot had happened in the following months. Julie was enjoying her long summer vacation by redecorating the house now that the major work was completed. John had gotten a job with a home improvement firm in Andersonville though he spent much of his free time still fixing the old place up, that is when he and Julie weren’t making love in every room in the house.
Julie had reluctantly moved to her mother’s old room but only did so due to another development - Johnny had moved in with her. He convinced her that was the only room large enough for the bed they needed and they totally rearranged the layout of the new furniture so it gave the room a totally new look. With the new windows and the soft blue walls it was virtually unrecognizable to how it had looked before. John further exorcised her mother’s memory by making love to Julie in there so many times that it became synonymous with pleasure for them.
When she met John’s father she’d been nervous about his reaction to her being older and his former teacher but the older man took to her instantly and said she was the best thing to ever happen to his son. Julie offered to let him move in with them as they had plenty of room with just the two of them (and Emily) but he scoffed at that suggestion.
“I’m cranky and set in my ways and that’s how I’ll stay, thank you very much. You kids are only a few minutes away if I need you and as long as I’m on two feet I’m staying put, but thanks for asking. Besides I’m hoping you can put a better use to those rooms.”
She blushed from his last line but she understood his decision. Only one thing troubled her lately. There were occasions when John seemed to be distracted about something. More than once she’d been talking to him and he was oblivious to what she’d said. He’d always apologize and say he was just thinking about something and didn’t hear her. There was even one time when he received a call on his cell and he left the room to have a conversation. He seemed to still be in love with her and there had been no decrease in the attention he gave her but still she worried a little.
Maybe that contributed to her feeling sick lately as there seemed to be no other cause. Julie ignored her symptoms at first but when they didn’t go away she made an appointment to see her doctor. There was no reason to worry him she decided. Knowing Johnny he’d insist on taking the day off to drive her when she was perfectly able to go on her own.
John arrived home late the evening of her appointment as his boss had wanted the crew to finish up a job that day. When he arrived he saw her car in the driveway but the house was dark and silent. As he came in the front door Emily greeted him impatiently, looking to be fed. After attending to her demands he headed upstairs. When he switched on the bedroom light he was startled to see Julie sitting in a chair silently and she looked like she had been crying. The joke he thought of about forgetting to pay the electric bill died on his lips when he saw her puffy eyed face.
“Hey Julie, are you all right?” he asked as he knelt before her.
“Yes, no, I don’t know anymore” she said and it appeared like she was about to cry again.
“Come on, it can’t be that bad, can it?”
“Maybe but that depends on you Johnny. I have something to tell you.”
He couldn’t imagine what was bothering her but he needed to know.
“So tell me” he told her while meeting her eyes with his.
“I know we’ve never discussed it and I guess we should have. That’s both our faults but it doesn’t matter now I guess. Johnny I haven’t been feeling well lately so today I went to the doctor.”
That caught him off guard and now he looked at her with obvious concern. He took her slim hand in his while he waited for her to continue speaking.
“The reason I’ve been sick, oh let me just say it. I’m pregnant Johnny, I’m going to have a baby.”
“Whoa” he managed to say and Julie thought he looked shell shocked all of a sudden. Without warning he stood and headed towards the door. “I’ll be right back” he called out to her followed by the sounds of him stomping down the stairs and then the front door slamming.
She was speechless at his reaction. It was nothing like she expected. Julie had hoped he’d greet the news with the joy she had initially felt when she heard the diagnosis although she realized it would catch him off guard and he might not like the idea. But him running off never occurred to her.
Suddenly she heard the front door close again and his footsteps as he bounded up the stairs. In seconds he was in the room breathing hard.
“Johnny I’d understand if you said you never agreed to this…” she began before he shushed her and again knelt at her feet. He was looking down at the floor so she couldn’t read his emotions and he seemed to be fidgeting in his pocket with one hand.
“Sorry about that” he began “but that was unexpected. I’ve been wanting to talk to you about something but I guess I was waiting for the right time. Well this changes things, that’s for sure, so I guess there’s no time like the present. I hoped to do this in a fancier way but your news has trumped any plans I had so here goes.”
John turned his face to hers again and she read joy there.
“Julie Jones, I fell in love with you when I was a dumb kid and you were my sexy English teacher though you didn’t know it and I was too stupid to take a chance. Then I fell in love with you all over again and I decided this time I wouldn’t give up without a fight but luckily for me you felt the same. And now you give me the greatest news I could ever imagine. Only one thing can make this day even better - would you do me the honor of marrying me Miss Jones?”
As he said this he removed his hand from his pocket and she saw a ring in it which he slid onto her slender finger.
“Oh my God! Yes Johnny, yes!” Julie cried out and before she knew it they were embracing and kissing.
A little later they lay under the covers with John’s body lying on top of hers as they caught their breath.
“If I’d only known sooner I’d have asked you earlier Julie.”
“That sex with one’s fiance is the greatest sex in the world. Too bad that it won’t last long.”
“And why is that?”
“I figure you’ll want to be married before our daughter is born.”
“Our daughter? Why do you say that?”
“I just have a feeling but don’t worry, we’ll work on making a brother for her afterwards.”
“Oh and then what are you doing now sir, practicing?” she asked as she felt him start to move inside her.
“Practice makes perfect” he answered as he thrust deep, filling her.
“Hmm, well then lets keep practicing Johnny” Julie said before she kissed him.
