“Yeah, they can’t control how we feel. But we can control what we do about it.”
“But you want to fuck me, though, don’t you?”
I sighed. “What do you think? Or are you just fishing for compliments?”
“I think you want me. I want you. You can have me whenever you like, you know.”
“Well, that’s the thing. I can’t, not really. And right now, I need to be with Sa’afia. So you sleep, pretty Ana.”
I turned back. Ana had pulled the sheet down. Her breasts were a little smaller than Sa’afia’s, paler brown than the rest of her skin. But they were very nicely defined. I thought of how they’d feel, in my mouth. Then, after half a second, she pulled the blankets back up and disappeared.
She lay very still and silent under the covers, legs together, arms at her sides. She’d be fighting back giggles.
I thought of the explosion of Ana limbs and blankets there’d be, if I poked her in the tummy. I thought about the things, including the epic spanking and the long-delayed, hard but oddly loving fuck, that would follow from that. And I thought of things to say. I shook my head. No, there was nothing to be done, and nothing to say.
I stepped into the hall, towards Sa’afia, and closed the door behind me.
