Cassie has found the woman of her dreams. When she tells her best friend -- and former lover -- Sophie, Cassie recounts several escapades with Lessie, including one that nearly gets her into serious trouble.
Once Cassie confides her secret to Sophie, though, her ex is turned on and can't seem to keep her hands to herself. And it has Cassie wondering if she should come clean with Lessie, or give into Sophie's advances in order to keep secret the little interlude that just might ruin the best relationship she's ever had.
“So tell me, tell me everything,” Sophie said as we sat together on her couch.
“She’s gorgeous, really stunning and so exciting. She’s about the same height as I am, but she’s dark and mysterious. She has the largest brown eyes, long wavy hair that curls around her face, and her mouth is so sexy. She has this pout that just draws your gaze to her lips, and then you can’t bear to tear yourself away from them.”
“Well, you’ve certainly fallen hard,” she laughed.
“Who wouldn’t? We met about four months ago, when I was on the last leg of my trip. She’d taken the same tour bus, and we sat not far from each other. At the first stop, she made her way over to where I was. We struck up a conversation and she asked me flat out if I was gay.”
Sophie laughed. “So she came right to the point?”
“You can say that again. I wasn’t sure what to say, so I said, ‘Yeah, you got a problem with that?’ She replied, ‘Not at all, just hoping you’ll sit with me at the back of the bus.’ So I did. She’s exciting to be with. She has the most positive outlook in life. If you don’t like her, she doesn’t care. She doesn’t waste time on small talk. If she wants to know something, she asks, and if she likes you, you’re her friend for life.”
“Does she have a name?” Sophie asked.
“Sorry, yes, it’s Alessandra, but I call her Lessie. You’ll love her.”
“Nice. What does she do?”
“She’s an accountant, but this accountant is defiantly not boring. If anything, she seems to go out of her way to spice things up, be outrageous, even at work. She’s mischievous and loves to dare you. I found out very early on not to challenge her. She’ll win every time.”
“I’m intrigued already,” Sophie said, peering at me over the rim of her glass.
“That first tour on the bus, she had me eating out of her hand. One evening while we were still on the road, the bus had to detour due to an accident which had us running three hours late. She showed me what a devil she was.
“Most of the patrons were sleeping, and we were the only ones in the back seat. She had a blanket and covered our legs with it. She dared me to take my panties off, so I did. She snuggled up close to me, her hand on my thigh, inching its way up.”
