Aw, it's my last Teaser Tuesday of 2009! *Sniffles* This one is from Life is a Highway, and it after the group makes it to the ranch in Montana. Actually, it's their first night on the ranch, and they're looking for something fun to do! So, they're sitting by the lake, looking at the stars! It looks long, but that's cuz it's all diaglogue mainly!
“Hey, isn’t that your Uranus?” Christian asked, but he put way more emphasis on the anus part. When Chloe and I glanced over at him, his body already shook from laughter.
“God, Chris, you’re so immature sometimes!” Chloe cried, smacking him on the arm.
“Easy, Mutt. Don’t wanna hurt these guns.”
She snorted. “Ooh, I’m so scared!!!”
“What the hell are you guys doing?” Liam asked, as he strolled across the dock towards us.
“Just chilling out here under the stars,” Aidan replied, as he rolled into a sitting position.
“Hmm, sounds thrilling,” Liam mused, with a smile.
Christian snapped his fingers. “Dude, I’ve got a great idea.
“And what would that be?” I tentatively asked. Something about the gleam in his eye made me a little nervous.
“Let’s really kick this trip up a notch. Who’s up for some skinny dipping?”
I gasped. “S-skinny d-dipping?”
“Hell yeah! That sounds awesome!” Aidan replied.
I whirled around to stare at him incredulously. “Are you serious?”
He gave me a wicked grin. “Ah, come on, Nicholson. Where’s your sense of adventure?”
“Uh, I don’t know exactly, but I’m pretty sure wherever it is, it’s fully clothed!”
Chloe snorted. “Oh leave her alone, Aidan. You know Two-Shoes here isn’t gonna go skinny dipping.”
“And you are?” I asked.
Chloe stared at the guys before looking back at me. In one swift movement, she whipped her shirt over her head.
“Oh lord!” Liam cried. He ducked his head while Aidan and Christian hooted in appreciation.
“Well, are we going to do this or not?” she asked, as she brought her hand to the button of her shorts.
“Oh, yeah, we’re doing this,” Christian replied, whisking off his shirt and shoes. Liam and I hung back as the other shed their clothing. They were shadowy wisps in the night as they scuttled off the pier and ran down to the shoreline.
“Are you…?” I asked
When I looked again, Christian’s bare ass gleamed at me in the moonlight. Liam snorted. “Yeah, what the hell. You only live once!”
I didn’t dare peer down at the water’s edge to see if I could get a peek at Aidan. I’d seen him stripped down to his boxers before, but that’s as far as I’d seen.
I heard the others crashing into the water. “Come on, Maddie,” Liam urged. Before I could protest, his tossed his shirt at me. It slapped me in the face, and I couldn’t help laughing. “Fine. But I’m keeping on my underwear.”
“Okay, whatever, you say.”
It was so dark I could barely see the others as I dipped my toes in the water. “Whoa, wait a minute. Maddie’s coming in?” Aidan asked.
“Yes,” I snapped.
I swam over to the others. Aidan was grinning at me. “Lemme guess. You’ve still got your underwear on?”
“Maybe. What’s it to you?” I huffed, trying to keep my distance from him. But he wasn’t having any part of it.
“But if you’ve got your underwear on, you’re not really skinny dipping, are you?” he asked.
“I’m in here with you guys, isn’t that enough?”
Aidan slowly shook his head back and forth. “Come on, Maddie. Take it all off,” he taunted.
“No,” I replied, emphatically.
He leaned in closer—his naked body almost touching mine—and lowered his voice. “Take it off for me?”
In spite of the hot evening, a shiver ran down my spine. His words lit me on fire in a way I’d tried to fight. He wasn’t supposed to make me tingle just from a request.
Without taking my eyes off of his, my trembling hands reached for the straps of my bra. Slowly I pulled them down over my arms, and then brought my hands to my back to unhook it. Cool water rushed over my chest, causing me to gasp. I balled the bra in my hand and shoved it across to him. “There.”
He grinned as he took it from me. “Thank you.”
I knew the panties were going to be a little harder. “Need some help?” he asked, his hand grazing against my stomach.
“No, I don’t!” I hissed, knocking his hand away.
Laughter rolled through him. “Aw, Maddie, I love how modest and innocent you are. Sometimes I wonder if you’re going to die a virgin.”
This time his words caused seething anger to pulse through me. I’d managed to wiggle out of my panties. Without a word, I reared back and slapped him in the face with them.
Throwing my shoulders back, I stared at him. “And that, Mr. Cleary, is as close to my panties as you’re ever going to come!”
