Willow was grinning from ear to ear as the 4-wheeler came to a stop.
<Breathe... breathe... breathe... >
She felt the blonde give her a little squeeze before unwrapping her arms.
Willow just continued to grin and nod her head.
"Any time..." <anywhere... any place... any how... Bad Willow!!>
"I better go check my mail... make sure business is going smooth..."
"Okay... maybe I'll see ya later..."
"I'd like that..."
Tara gave Willow a quick peck on the cheek and headed for the stalls. Herbie needed a good rub down before Mr. Davenport arrived and Willow took off for the house. She needed to put a little distance between her and the blonde goddess before she did something really stupid and embarrassed herself and possibly Tara.
<I love 4-wheelin...>
The redhead checked her in-box and noticed that her boss from DBG had sent her a reply.
So glad you are getting settled in and look forward to the meeting. I spoke with the client a little while ago and they had nothing but praise for you young lady. If all goes well you may need to fly out and meet in person with them.
I noticed you haven't picked out a vehicle yet. Moving is a slow process though... no worries... get you something nice. We'll talk soon.
Willow had all but forgotten about getting a vehicle. Somewhere in the back of her mind she had made the decision that she didn't need to leave the farm because that would put distance between her and Tara. And she didn't want distance between her and Tara.
She decided that she would need to get some camping gear for the camp-out and knew that she needed to get a vehicle. She searched the kitchen for a phone book and looked up local Taxi services. A soft knock on the door halted her search.
Tara smiled as she saw Willow walking towards the kitchen door.
<She's so cute...>
Tara blushed and gave a sheepish grin as she stood outside the door.
"Hey... Ummm... .Doug is going to brush Herbie down for me... so I thought I would... just... come and say thanks again... for everything..."
Willow smiled and opened the door wider. <Can she get any more beautiful... >
"Would you like to come in for a while?"
"I don't want to interrupt you..."
Tara eyed the phone book and Willow quickly tossed it onto the island. There would be time for taxi's later.
"You're not... interrupting I mean. Please... come in."
Tara stepped into the kitchen and Willow closed the door. The silence that hung between them was comfortable. They were both just thrilled to be in the other's company.
The blonde nodded her head excitedly and Willow went to work. Before long the girls had their tea and were sitting on the sofa in the living room.
"Willow... I need to tell you something..."
The red head furrowed her brows and sat her glass down on the coffee table. She turned to give Tara her complete attention and waited patiently.
"Today... when we kissed... I..."
<Here it comes... it was a mistake... she didn't mean to... she only wants to be friends... brace yourself Willow... don't lose it till after she breaks your heart and leaves...>
Tara seemed to be having trouble finding the words. She just didn't know how to express how it made her feel to kiss Willow. Slowly, she reached out and took the freckled hand into her own. She could feel Willow shaking.
Tara looked into those eyes of deep green and could have lost herself forever.
"I... had no idea... that kissing you that way would... make me feel like this..."
Willow squeezed her hand.
"It's okay Tara... I understand... if you just want to be friends that's fine."
"What? No... no... I mean yes..."
Willow felt confused and Tara knew she needed to make Willow understand.
"Willow... since we kissed..."
Tara let out a deep sigh...
"That's all I've thought about... on the ride home... I just wanted to make you stop and kiss me all over again... Willow... I don't ever want you to stop kissing me..."
Willow felt her heart do a little dance which immediately woke up the butterflies in her tummy.
"You make me feel things I've never felt before... it's scary... but it's nice... I just don't know what to do..."
The red head lost her heart completely. Tara had somehow reached in and put her mark on Willow's very soul. The innocence in her blue eyes showed the fear that lurked just underneath the surface. They also shone bright with curiosity and desire and Willow couldn't wait to help Tara tap into those hidden desires.
"Tara... you don't have to do anything... I like taking it slow and finding out who you are... there is still so much I want to know about you."
Tara smiled and dipped her head, allowing a few blonde locks to fall in view of her face. Willow just couldn't have that. She reached out and tucked the strands behind a very cute ear.
"Willow... would it be wrong of me to ask you... to... kiss me again?"
The red head leaned into the blonde, a breath apart.
"Kissing you... could never be wrong..."
Slowly, both girls leaned into each other. Their lips touched and the fire came to life. Willow tried to be gentle and soft, she didn't want to make Tara uncomfortable but it was all she could do to take it slow.
She felt Tara's tongue tenderly ask for permission to enter and so she conceded. Tara's hands rested on Willow's shoulders and the red head felt intoxicated by the sweet kiss. They parted briefly to take in air, blue eyes burned with want and Willow saw no reason to deny Tara anything.
She quickly claimed the blonde's lips in a passionate kiss. Tara let out a whimper as those lips pulled away again, but then gasped and closed her eyes as she felt them descend upon her neck.
Willow slowly pushed Tara back on the sofa. The blonde smelled so good and tasted even better. Tara followed Willow's lead and soon found herself lying beneath the gorgeous red head, powerless against her lips... her touch... the weight of her body...
Tara's words were swallowed by hungry lips. Willow gently sucked on her bottom lip and Tara arched her back. Her fingers running up the back of Willow's neck and tangling in her red hair.
"Mmmmmm... Tara... you're making me crazy..."
Willow felt the blonde's body press up into hers. Those firm breasts that had so lovingly rode against her back earlier were now begging to be touched. She cupped her hand over Tara's left breast and both girls moaned at the touch.
Both girls stared lovingly at one another as Willow slid her hand under the cotton t-shirt that kept her from feeling Tara's warm skin.
"Is this okay?"
Tara ran her hand down Willow's back and slowly began sliding under the red heads shirt. Willow's skin was so soft. It was like nothing she had ever felt before. And she wanted to feel all of it... every inch of it...
Willow was so close she could feel the silky lace on Tara's bra, but she came to an instant stop at the blonde's request.
"What is it... Oh my God! It's me... I went to fast... I shouldn't have done this... I'm so sorry..."
"I knew I was going to fast... I mean... you need time... and to take advantage of you right here on the..."
Tara seized the red head's lips; it seemed to be the only way to get her attention.
"Willow... calm down... I'm fine... you're fine... we are fine. It's not to fast... I just... I've got to take care of Mr. Davenport..."
Willow felt totally confused. She had just left earth and went to Taraville and wasn't sure what was going on.
"Mr. Davenport... Herbie..."
Realization dawned on the red heads face and she slowly untangled herself from the blonde.
"I heard his truck pull up... Doug doesn't know where the papers are for him to sign... he would have interrupted us... I didn't want him to see..."
Willow smiled and nodded her head.
Tara stood and straightened her clothes. Her heart was still pounding in her chest and the look on Willow's face left no doubt that she felt the same. Tara smiled and kissed Willow one last time before heading toward the door.
"Let's finish this later... okay?"
A soft fingertip stopped any other words from spilling from Willow's lips.
"Later... when we have more time..."
Tara stepped out of the doorway and made her way back over to the barn. Doug was loading Herbie into the horse trailer and talking with Mr. Davenport. However, the blonde's thoughts were still back in the house, swirling around a certain red head that had stolen her heart completely.
<Tara Maclay... I think you've went and fell in love...>
A goofy grin covered her face as she climbed the stairs to the office to gather Herbie's paperwork. She couldn't wait to finish what she and Willow had started.
