The sun is just starting to lower to the horizon as we pass the woman sitting alone on the beach. We smile and nod as you and I continue on our walk.
There is a rock outcropping that is ahead and just beyond our vacation rental. We’ve been walking for quite a while, just splashing in the water and chatting as we hold hands.
You start to angle towards the house and give me a puzzled look as I continue straight on. I smile and bat my eyes at you, giving away that I might have a plan in mind.
As we get to the rocks, I slip into a crevice that opens up just a bit. There is a beautiful view of the sun starting to turn shades of pink and purple and I settle you back against the wall to look.
And take off your shirt. I see you looking around as you hear voices, nervously laughing. It stops immediately when I grab your face and kiss you hard. I release you and start nipping and sucking down your shoulders and chest. I hear your head lightly hit the wall as you drop your head back and close your eyes.
As I continue, the marks start appearing on you, random dark spots where I have sucked and bitten you. No rhyme or reason except that it looked like a good spot to go next. Your breathing quickens and there are some sharp inhales and ouches as I bite down.
