35 pages33 minutes

The moon is almost full, high in the sky as Mareta leads me into the shadows. Her hand is shaking as she pulls me close to her, leaning up to kiss me hard. Then she's pushing me back against the gym wall and dropping to her haunches in front of me. The pale-yellow dress is silver-gold in the moonlight, swept up and over her legs so that it doesn't get dirty. I get a great view this way of her rose-print panties, one hand slipping inside them as the other fumbles with my fly...
