Leona woke up put on a robe and went out to the kitchen to make coffee. She didn't know how to ask the question that Jennifer planted in her mind. As she sipped her coffee she was joined by Jennifer. Jennifer was barefoot and wore a robe with nothing underneath.
The women exchanged pleasantries and then Lee asked a question. "Jennifer, I hope you don't think I'm being too forward or too personal, but I have a question to ask you."
Jennifer finished taking a sip and said, "Lee, you can ask me anything you want."
Lee took a deep breath and said, "Here goes. Yesterday when I asked you about being hairless down below, you said people you have been intimate with like it very much. Could you define people for me?"
Jennifer smiled and replied, "Well, as long as we are being so honest, By 'people' I mean women. I am a lesbian. Is that a problem for you?"
Lee looked at her and said, "No not at all. I just wondered what you meant when you said people. Its just that I have never met a lesbian before and I was wondering."
Jennifer, "I am sure you have met lesbians before, you just haven't known. So, since I am one, would you like me to move out."
"Oh my no. I like you. Not in that way, but I like you."
"And what way is that?" asked Jennifer
"As a friend, nothing more," replied Lee
Jennifer smiled and pushed it a bit, "Well, that's too bad."
Lee had a puzzled look on her face. "What's too bad?"
Jennifer smiled and said, "That you don't like me in that way."
Lee laughed, "First and foremost I am straight and second I'm too old."
Jennifer reached out and covered Lee's hand, "First and foremost, how do you know and second I saw you nude and you are a hottie," replied Jennifer.
Lee did not move her hand but liked that feel of human touch. "Well, I've never been with a woman so that says I'm straight and second I've never thought of myself as a hottie."
Jennifer squeezed her hand, "Well, you don't know if you've never tried and second you should think of yourself that way because you are."
Lee just sat there and Jennifer resumed. "Will you be honest with me?" Lee nodded. "Have you ever even thought about or wondered what it would be like to be with a woman?"
Lee was very quiet. Too quiet. "Lee? Earth to Lee. Come in please." Both women laughed.
Lee took a deep breath. Many years ago we have a couple that my husband and I were close to. We did a lot of things together. Dinner. Movies, A couple of vacations. Then one afternoon she came over just to say, 'Hi.' As I got up to get us more coffee she got up and followed me. I turned around and she kissed me. I mean on the lips. A romantic passionate kiss. It was totally unexpected."
"What did you do?"
Lee replied, "I kissed her back. I shouldn't have but I did. The kiss went on for a while and my mind was racing, just then I heard the garage door. My husband came home early for work. I was flushed and embarrassed. My friend left and I busied myself. Greeted my husband and then went to the bathroom to throw some cold water on my face. I discovered my panties were damp and my nipples were hard. I wondered what might have happened if he had not come home. Since then once in a while I have wondered if it would have ever gone any further."
Jennifer said, "And how would you have felt if it had gone further?"
Lee looked down. "I did love her. I thought I just loved her as a friend, you know. I can't believe I'm telling you all this."
Jennifer squeezed her hand, "I'm not going to tell anyone."
Lee smiled, "Once in a while when I would pleasure myself I would think of her. A few times when my husband was licking me I thought of her. I know it was wrong but I did."
Jennifer said, "It wasn't wrong. It was a normal and natural reaction to the situation. You loved her but you just didn't know what shape or kind of love you had for her."
"Well, it was confusing to say the least."
"Time for me to ask you a personal question. Have you ever wanted to be with a woman in that way since?"
Lee just shook her head. "You gotta' love youthfulness. Unafraid to ask any question."
"Nice dodge," said Jennifer. "So, have you?"
"Well you are persistent aren't you?" Both women laughed, "To be honest," said Lee, "I have."
"And how do you feel about that?" asked Jennifer
"Funny. Kind of embarrassed. Shy. I don't think I would ever act on it."
"First, you don't need to feel funny. It's natural, it's just that people have buried their feelings for centuries. It's good that the time has come that we can share our feelings. Second, love has no rules, so why wouldn't you act on it?"
"Well, I suppose, maybe. Listen, I'm going out to the mall to browse. Want to go along?"
Jennifer laughed. "Wow what a segue. Sure I'd love to go to the mall with you. In fact my dear lady, I'd love to do anything with you." Jennifer winked, finished her coffee, and stood up. "I'll shower and be ready in half an hour." She left leaving Lee sitting at the table. As she stood Lee reflected on her last words, "I'd love to do anything with you."
The women went shopping and had a wonderful afternoon. They returned home and unpacked their bags. Lee had gone to the kitchen to start to get something ready for dinner when Jennifer came out with nothing on but a towel around her neck. "Thought I'd take a quick dip in the pool. Why don't you join me," said Jennifer as she walked out
Lee watched her. The swing of her hips and the long brunette hair flipping from side to side was making Lee feel rather warm. She watched Jennifer swim for a few minutes, got undressed and grabbed a towel. She dived into the water swam a couple of laps and then came over to Jennifer.
"Great idea," said Lee.
Jennifer smiled, "I don't care what you say you are one sexy woman."
Lee just looked at Jennifer, not knowing what to say. They swam a few more laps and then stopped to take a breather. Suddenly out of no where Jennifer put her arms around Lee and gave her a long passionate kiss. Lee was so taken a back at the action that at first she didn't know what to do. But then she slowly began to warm to the kiss. She kissed Jennifer back. Lips parted and the women's tongues darted in and out of each other's mouths.
Finally. they mutually broke the kiss. The two women just looked into each other's eyes and finally Jennifer said, "I am not sorry I kissed you. Not at all. If you want me to move out just let me know. If you do, I would appreciate it if you let me spend the night and move out in the morning." With that she turned, got out of the pool, dried off, and went into the house.
Lee just stood in the waist deep water dumbstruck. She liked the kiss, no she loved the kiss but, there was that word "but" again. She came out of the pool, dried off and went into the house. She passed Jennifer's room and the door was closed. Lee turned to knock but then thought better of it. She went to her room, showered, dressed and came out to work on dinner. A chicken salad might hit the spot. She made it and waited but Jennifer did not come out of her room.
At a little after seven Lee went to Jennifer's door. She knocked. "Go away, I'm packing," came Jennifer's voice. Lee knocked once again and then door flew open. It was Jennifer. She had been crying. "I said, I'm packing. Go away." The two women just stood facing each other.
Lee saw two suit cases on the bed both partially packed. She looked back at Jennifer. "Well, are you going to leave me alone," said the younger woman.
Lee replied, "Dinner is ready."
"I'm not hungry," came the reply of the younger woman.
Lee just stared and then pushed her way past Jennifer,
"Excuse me," said Jennifer in a harsh tone, "but this is still my room." By the time she finished speaking Lee was taking her clothing out of the suit case and putting it back in the chests. "I suppose you better tell me where these clothes go," said Lee. "Or you will just have to rearrange them."
Jennifer took two steps toward Lee. "You mean you don't want me to leave,"
Lee took a step toward the younger woman and gave her a kiss. "Leave. I don't want you to leave. I want to make love with you."
Jennifer was stunned. "What?" she asked.
Lee rolled her eyes, "We have a hearing problem here? Read my lips! I want us to make love together. I don't know if it's what I want or don't want. I know I like you very much and whether that means being a friend of being a lover as well I just don't know. So, before I lose you and perhaps make a terrible mistake, I want us to make love. Now, did you understand all of that? Because I don't want to repeat it again. I want us to clear this bed, take off our clothes, and make love. Then after talk about what we feel. Are you ok with that?"
Jennifer walked over and kissed her. Jennifer had tears rolling down her cheeks and she looked at the older woman and said, "Shut up and let's get this bed cleared, I've wanted to make love to you since the day we met."
