We had our showers, and had breakfast at the same place we did last night before hitting the road again. The entire meal was nothing but sideways glances, giggles, and a minimal amount of actual eating. After our meal we walked back to the car, somewhere along the way our hands found each other. Tara looked beautiful today, she wore a plain white tank top and tight blue jeans, and I may have been mistaken but I didn't think she was wearing a bra.

I opened the passengers side door for her when we got to the car, in an attempt to be chivalrous, she smiled and stepped inside, but I couldn't help but feel kinda stupid. After getting into the drivers seat I just sat there a while. I had something to say but I wasn't sure what it was, so I just stared out the window and tried to form words out of all the emotions running through my brain. I could feel her eyes on me, and I could tell that they were caring and concerned. Finally I decided to just screw thinking and just wing it, hoping that once I started the words would come.

I turned to face her and finally spoke "Tara... I..."

"Shhhh" She placed a long slender finger against my lips, "it's ok Willow, I know, and I can't explain it either... But I feel it too." the finger left my lips and her hand went around to cup my cheek. She guided me forward and for the third time that day our lips met in a kiss. She immediately parted her lips and slipped her tongue inside my waiting mouth. This kiss was nothing like the others, the others reflected the beginning of something new, and compassion, but this one, this was about passion, about showing each other how much we wanted the other.

My hand went to the back of her neck and the other rested lightly on her waist. Our kiss became feverish, each of us fighting for dominance, neither wanting to win. I took the upper hand and pushed forward until she was leaning back against the car seat. My right hand slid up against her side until the swell of her breast rested in the space between my thumb and forefinger. Nope no bra today. We couldn't breathe through our noses anymore so we both pulled back, but I stayed close, almost nose to nose. We caught our breaths and I gently kissed each corner of her mouth as my hand moved higher until her entire breast was covered by my palm.

Her head fell back at the first squeeze of my fingers and I began to trail kisses down her neck. I felt rather than heard the moan she let out as my thumb grazed her nipple through the thin shirt. Soon I was massaging her breast with fervor, licking and sucking at her neck, and every time she moaned I moaned too. I was getting so hot and by the way she was squirming in her seat, I was pretty sure she was turned on too.

She took my face in her hands and brought me up for a kiss. She kissed me fiercely but it was short lived. Just as quickly as it had begun, it was over and she pulled away. She took a deep breath, then laughed before saying, "We should probably hit the road."

I laughed too. "Yah... I guess things got a little out of hand."

"Oh no there were plenty of hands," she said laughing as she checked out the little hickeyes I had left on her neck.

"Oh yah I um... sorry about that..."

"Sweetie I was only kidding," she kissed me lightly on the cheek.

"Sweetie huh? ...I could get used to that"
