Summer After Year 9 of the Addergoole School
“Free at last.”
Jaya’s mother had the kids – all of them, which wasn’t a kind thing to do to any being, but she’d volunteered – and Arna was well and truly done with school, and Jaya was on summer break and had five days off from work. They were, in all practical senses free. They’d gone to the lake.
“Free at last,” Arna agreed. She had her lips against Jaya’s neck, her arm and one leg draped over Jaya, and her breasts pressed against Jaya’s side. She felt warm, and a bit sticky, and perfect. “And out of that place. I know.” She held up one hand lazily. “I had it good. I had you, I had Jovanna, I had an easy time of it. But it’s still nice to be out.”
“I know.” Jaya twisted until she could kiss her lover’s forehead. “I had Ty, I had you. I had an easy time of it. But it’s nice to have you out of it, too. It’s nice to be here.”
The cottage on the lake was a family property – Jaya’s stepdad’s family, but still family. Their bed was on the screened in porch, watching the lake; the chances of someone coming across them was almost zero. Still, it felt horribly daring as Jaya stretched, showing herself off to the water and the moose.
“It wouldn’t be this peaceful with the kids here.”
“Or with homework, and work, and everything else. But it’s a nice place to hide for a little while.” Arna tugged Jaya back to the bed. “Hide. And snuggle.”
“Mmm.” She pressed her lips against Arna’s collarbone in agreement.
