CHAPTER 5 • INVESTMENTS IN ONE ANOTHER
SYRACUSE GROVE APARTMENTS…
Morning breaks through the window in Elise’s bedroom. The light shines through the blinds onto her face. Elise tries to pull the pillow over her face. She throws it off. “Ugh.”
Elise smacks her lips. She rolls over. Her arm lands on another person. Elise raises her head and a brow. She sees a pink haired woman lying next to her.
“I thought last night was a dream.” She mutters. Her head begins to throb. She blinks her eyes to gauge the pain. She feels sweaty. “What happened?”
The woman next to her is snoring. Elise, then, raises the covers. She sees that they are both naked. Elise sighs. I don’t remember much of last night. Did we have too much to drink? What the hell happened last night?
The pounding in her head grows. Elise throws her feet over the edge of the bed. She looks around the room as she rises. A wave of dizziness hits her. She begins to steady herself. She shakes her herself to remove the fogginess in her. Elise notices that her long tee and underwear are in opposite parts of the room. She scratches her head. Elise sighs again. “Great.”
She bends down and grabs her shirt, which is closest to her. It is on the floor just beside the edge of the bed on her side. She sits back down as she puts on the long tee. Once Elise places on the long tee, she rises from the bed and goes across the room.
Her underwear is hanging from the door knob to her closet door. “How did it get here?” She begins to mutter. “I don’t want to know.”
Elise removes her underwear from the door knob. She, then, slips on the light blue panties. She hears smacking of lips from her bed.
“Mmm. Last night was fun.” Elise hears. She, turns to see Destiny propping her head up. Destiny has a big grin on her face.
“Des, I don’t remember much of last night.” Elise tells her.
Destiny raises a brow. “You sure?”
“Positive.” Elise says. “I did dream that I was in the throw of ecstasy and passion with another woman. We even had sex. Strange way of having sex, but it happened nonetheless.”
“Ecstasy, huh?” Destiny nods her head. “That about sums it up. By the way, it was no dream. It really happened.”
“So why can’t I remember?”
“I don’t know, Elise. This really is disturbing. I hope it’s not something that I did.” Destiny responds. “I would feel guilty. I want what happened between us to be of your own free will.”
“So, what now?” Elise blushes. She does not know if she can trust her feelings. Did it really happen as Destiny says? I feel different. My heart aches for her, but why?
“You know, you’re cute when you blush.” Destiny sprouts a wry smile on her face. She winces as her right knee throbs. She grabs her knee as a sharp pain strikes her knee. “Arrrr.”
“You okay?” Elise has a look of concern on her face. Destiny continues to grimace in pain. “Something I can do to help?”
“Yes. Could you be a darling and retrieve my brace from the guest room?” Destiny asks. “I have this problem with my right leg stiffening at night. Usually, can’t move until it’s on in the morning.”
“What about your clothes from last night?”
“I’ll manage to crawl over to them.”
“Okay. I’ll be right back with your brace.”
“Thanks.” Destiny watches as Elise walks out of the room. She sees the swaying of Elise’s hip and sighs with a smile on her face. “Yummy.” She chuckles. Destiny, then, throws the covers off. She makes her way across the bed to Elise’s side. On the floor, Destiny spots her pink crop top and pink panties. She sighs. Then, she leans over to reach them.
This throws Destiny’s balance off. “Whoa, oh, oh.” She topples onto the floor hitting her head. “Ow!”
Elise rushes back into the bedroom. Destiny’s brace is in hand. “You okay?”
Destiny looks up at Elise. Elise can clearly see Destiny’s vagina, in between Destiny’s legs, as well as the groomed bush above it. She blushes. Elise looks away shyly. “It’s okay. You took care of me very well down there last night.” Destiny hears her stomach rumble. “I think I need to get dressed. Not sure I can handle that right now. I could use some food.”
“That’s okay.” Elise says. “I’m not really ready to do anything like that right now. I need to get going anyways. I still have some artifacts to identify at work.”
“Do you mind if I come with you?”
“Serious?” Elise raises a brow. “You sure. It’s kind of boring at times.”
“Of course.” Destiny says slipping on her panties. Elise hands her the brace. Destiny hooks it around her right knee and shin. Then, she slips on the crop top. “I want to see what you do.”
“Well, then, you will need to dress better than the biker outfit.” Elise says. She heads over to her closet. “I have to get dressed as well.”
“Yeah.” Destiny rubs the back of her neck as she looks up at Elise. “I don’t have anything else with me.”
“Don’t worry.” Elise says. “You look about the same size as I am. You can borrow some clothes of mine.”
“You sure?” Destiny says as she sits back down on the bed. She rubs the top of her head where the pain throbs.
“Yeah. Not a problem.” Elise goes into her closet. She digs out a dark blue suit with skirt and some matching pumps. She hands them to Destiny. Then, she pulls out a white shirt to go with it.
“A suit?” Destiny raises a brow as she looks up at Elise.
Elise raises a brow. “If you’re coming with me, yes. I will be wearing a suit as well.”
“All right.” Destiny says. “I’ll do it for you. Suits are not normally my thing.”
“Okay. But you’ll need to wear a bra, too.”
“You heard me.”
“Making sure I heard you right, Elise. You know I don’t like them.” Destiny says. She gulps. Then, Destiny looks at her chest before putting her hands underneath her breasts and pushing them up. Elise looks cross at Destiny. “Oh, all right. I don’t own one, though. I like to keep them free.”
Elise rolls her eyes. “Great. I’m going to have to teach you a little decency.”
“Good luck on that.” Destiny sarcastically says. “I’m not the easiest person to deal with.”
“I used to be with a lycan, dahrling.” Elise raises and lowers her brows a couple of time. “I think I can deal with you.” A wry grin is on her face.
“You can certainly try.” Destiny raises a brow.
Both giggle as they get ready for the day.
I love to write. It is a passion of mine. Some would say an obsession, but those don’t really support me when they call it an obsession.
My writing usually combines my influences of Epic Fantasy, Sci-Fi Sagas, Paranormal, Classic Horror monsters, Superheroes and more. With what I like movie wise it would be hard for most people to understand some of my major influences in writing.
My influences include: J.K. Rowling, E.B. White, Homer, William Shakespeare, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Chris Claremont, Lara Hama, Margaret Weis, Tracey Hickman, J Michael Strasczynski, Todd McFarlane, Scott Lobdell, Timothy Zahn, Roald Dahl, Cassandra Clare, amongst others.
