(Part 2)
Mahogany Lioness

Saun's voice caught in her throat as if she was about to burst into tears. I marched up to Saun and looked her dead in the eye. Her eyes were so full of tears, the minute she looked at me they began to spill all over her face and she began to gush with apologies. "'Mah' I'm sorry for keeping this kind of secret from you, I'm sorry if I made you feel uncomfortable around me. I don't want to loose you as my best friend, I'm sorry if I offended you, I'm…"

I couldn't take any more. I'd never seen Saun cry before. It hurt me to see someone who's always strong and so confident break down. Besides, I think she misunderstood what I was saying to her. "Saun, " I whispered softly as I brushed the tears from her cheeks. "I wanna go home…" I repeated. "With you."

Saun blinked a few times and looked really surprised. "Hold up, ‘Mah', do you know what you're saying?" She asked. I didn't say a word. I nodded, and proceeded to seal my words with a kiss. After a few minutes it was apparent that we were in for a long night. I lifted my hands to caress her head, and a moan escaped her lips. Her lips left mine and made there way to the base of my neck. She kissed tenderly left a trail of kissed up my neck, and then I was the one moaning. She paused at my ear and whispered, "Everything in me loves you, Mahogany."

Our lips met once again in a kiss. More passionate than before, when we parted we were both breathless. She took my hand and lead me back to the car. She helped me into the passenger side, and climbed into the driver's seat. The minute she turned on the car, the cabin filled with ‘my song' once again. She looked at me and smiled. I couldn't resist the opportunity to serenade her. "Next year lets call this day our anniversary. The day I put my heart in your hands saying it was yours to keep. From this moment on, say that you'll always be mine. Cause girl when I'm alone with you there's only one thing that's on my mind… Baby it's you."

The ride back to my house was quiet. I think both of us were deep in thought. It wasn't like we didn't have a lot to think about. At every stoplight we found ourselves making out like a couple of horny teenagers. I wasn't nervous until we arrived back at my house. Saun opened the door for me and turned on the light. She ran back out to her car to get the overnight bag she carried with her for emergency situations.

The minute I got inside the butterflies from earlier returned. I'd been nervous off and on all night, but it seemed that the moment of truth had finally arrived, and I wasn't sure that I was up to the challenge yet. You'd think the fact that we've been best friends for the past two years made things easier, but it didn't. It actually made things harder. First times are hard enough, but when you factor in 'hopping the fence', and your best friend ... I could've shyt a whole brick house complete with 3 car garage, and fireplace.

By the time Saun returned from getting her bag, the 'what if' family was taking it's toll on my self-confidence. "What if I didn't do it right?" "What if we didn't make it?" "What if she doesn't do it right?" "What if, what if, what if?" Saun sat her bag down in chair by the door. She took one look at me and cracked up laughing. "You look like a deer caught in somebody's headlights."

I wasn't amused, but seeing her laugh, made me laugh and eased some of the tension in the room. "I don't know about you, but I missed dinner and I'm starving." Saun smiled. "Do you have anything in your refrigerator that won't kill me?" "Very funny", I frowned. I went into the kitchen to see what I could whip up. I found cheese, some left over prime rib, and tortillas. In about 15 minutes, steak quesadillas were on the table. I added a little sour cream, salsa, and guacamole, and dinner was served.

We sat and talked while we ate. It was a good thing too because I had so many questions. "So did you plan everything that happened between us today?" I asked. "Nope," Saun answered, "I planned to tell you how I felt and that's it." I still had a few questions after that. "Why did you make it seem like you didn't know about Ty and Yaz?" "Would you have agreed to go out with me otherwise?" she smiled. The answer probably would have been "no" considering how much I hated those types of clubs. I had to admit I did have fun.

We talked a few minutes more. Mostly about Yazmeen the drama queen and how she tried to call us both out. Saun cracked up when I likened her to the devil because of her cat suit. I got up to clear the dishes and Saun helped eagerly. When we finish, she yawned and so did I and the discussion turned to talk of our sleeping arrangements. I must've gotten that deer in the headlights look on my face again, because Saun chuckled to herself and took me into her arms. "I'm not trying to rush this,' Mah', don't worry. I'll sleep in your guest bedroom tonight, and tomorrow when we get up we can go to brunch and to a movie." I can't tell you how relieved I was, not having to 'perform' right away. Saun grabbed her bag, and got settled in the guestroom. I laid out fresh towels for her before kissing her goodnight and retreating to my own room.

Let me tell you, it's nothing like in the movies! Yes, all the love and passion in the world was there, but my fear and uncertainty was so much stronger. I decided to take a quick shower before bed. I hoped the warm water would calm my nerves enough for me to be able to sleep. I slipped into my gown, and crawled between the cool sheets. I closed my eyes but sleep just wouldn't come. I lay the thinking about how sexy Saun was and how I could've kicked myself for putting her in the guestroom. A light rain had begun to fall outside, and despite the air conditioning, my ceiling fan, and the cool air outside, I was burning up! My mind drifted back to the park, Saun's lips and her tongue. There was a three-alarm fire going on inside of me, and Saun was going to have to be the on to put it out.

I lay awake for a while trying to figure out a way to get Saun out of the guestroom and into my bed. Out of nowhere a clap of thunder sounded, scaring the crap out of me. On instinct I screamed my head off. "'Mah', are you all right?" I heard footsteps coming toward my door, and I looked up silently thanking God for making this happen. The door opened, and I saw Saun's tall lanky figure standing in the doorway. "Shorty, don't tell me you're afraid of a little thunder?" she yawned. "Maybe," I squeaked. "I'm sorry I woke you."

"You didn't," she sighed, "I was awake. It's too hot to sleep." "You gonna stand in the doorway the rest of the night?" I asked with a smart-ass tone. "If I must, you know, to protect you from the big bad thunder and all." she quipped. "You aren't going to ever let me live that down are you?" I sighed. "Nope, I'm gonna to pretty much use that against you forever." she chuckled.

"Well you aren't getting any taller, come on and lay down with me." I sighed patting the empty space beside me. I could see a hint of a smiled creep across Saun's lips as she crossed the room and stood at the side of the bed. "No funny business, ma'am, I'm here strictly for your protection." She warned. "Girl get you ‘Frank Farmer' sounding ass in this bed before I jump on you!" I shouted. "Promise to jump on my anyway and you have a deal." Saun shot back.

Saun settled into bed with me, and the butterflies returned. I was so giddy with excitement everything she said cracked me up. I'd forgotten that my alarm was set for 4am. When the music came on, it startled me and I jumped into her arms and immediately busted out laughing again. "I've never heard you giggle so much before." she laughed. "Either you're really happy, or scared to death. Which is it?" She pulled me closer to her and I rested my head on her shoulder. "A little of both. " I confessed.

"I'm listening," Saun said silently letting me know I had some explaining to do. "Well, I'm happy that you finally told me how you really felt and I'm also happy that I feel the same way that you do." I began. "At the same time, this is opening up something very new and very different to who I knew myself to be. I'm scared that I'm not going to pick up on what I'm supposed to do and when, being I have no experience with a woman." Saun listened intently to all I had to say. She pulled me even closer and motioned for me to lay my head on her chest.

"Do you hear that?" She asked. I put an ear to her chest and listened as her heart beat so hard and so fast I thought it was going to leap out of her chest. I was so surprised, that I had to look at her face to see if she was for real. She was just as scared as I was! "Mah, you don't know how scared I am. Scared that you are just curious, and that I'm not the one you really want to be with. Scared that we will be fine and you'll wake up one day and decided that you want to be with a man… I have many fears, just like you, but I love you enough to take a chance. If nothing else, I have to thank God for what I asked for, and that was a chance to experience loving you."

Tears flowed down my cheeks in a silent stream. Even before she said what she did I knew that she was indeed in love with me. But it was at that moment I realized just how much and how deep her love really was. The radio station decided to broadcast ‘the quiet storm' to compliment the weather, and while the soulful rhythms sweetly serenaded us, Saun began to deliver feather soft kisses to my forehead. It started with one. I wrapped my arms around her tight. Then there was another. She turned to face me. With my face in her hands she kissed my eyebrows. I closed my eyes and she kissed my eyelids one by one. She even kissed the tears that streamed down my face.

Our lips met in a tender kiss that grew more intense as it went on. Her tongue met mine and parted my lips even further exploring my warm wet mouth. Our tongues seemed to dance together in my mouth awakening all of my senses to a sensation I'd never known before. "Mah, I need to feel your skin next to mine," Saun whispered when our kiss ended. Without saying a word, I sat up on my knees, and slowly unbuttoned my gown. I never took my eyes off hers as I let the silky material slide away from my skin and lay in a pile on the bed. Saun acted as if she was in a trance and couldn't move. My hands trembled as I pulled Saun to her knees. I let my hand slid down her body to the hem of her T-shirt. As I inched the shirt upward, I began to leave a trail of kisses on her stomach. She shivered as my lips grazed her skin. I worked the shirt and my kisses up to her neck, and she showed no resistance as I slipped the shirt over her head and let it drop behind her.

Oh my God, she was beautiful! I couldn't tear my eyes away from her beautiful brown breasts. Her nipples seemed to harden under my gaze. My hands trembled even more as I reached for the waistband of her boxers. As my hands grasped it, I felt her hands cover mine. She gently laid me down on my stomach and positioned herself between my legs. I felt her hovering over my back and she began to deliver kisses up and down my spine. I felt her hands caressing my ass. She slowly and deliberately worked her lips and tongue down my back, stopping at the waistband of my thong, she sat back and admired the view.

"A pair of underwear shouldn't be so lucky," she whispered tracing the outline of my pussy through the crotch of my moist panties. She tapped me on the thigh, and instinctively I pushed up on all fours, until I was on my knees in front of her. I felt her body press against me from behind, and her breath rested on my neck. She caressed my breasts as we pressed our bodies together. She playfully teased my breasts and played with the silver hoops that adorned my nipples. "Mmm, ‘Mah', you feel so good to me," She whispered between kisses to my neck and shoulders. She slipped a hand into my panties capturing my clit between her fingers. "Ohhhh!" I cried, as the sensation crept throughout my entire body. She traced her finger around my clit before centering her attention on the swollen nub.

After a few minutes she laid me down on my back and I watched her lick her fingers clean of my sticky love juices. "I've never tasted anything so sweet." She sighed. "It's just like I imagined. She slid between my thighs and I moaned as the material from her boxers grazed my sensitive clit. Lying on top of me, she kissed me. Fondling and squeezing my breasts, she kissed her way down my body. I cried out in sweet surrender as her tongue flicked across my swollen nipple. She sucked them so gently, careful not to hurt me, she made sweet love to one breast and then the other. The mere sensation of that alone was compounding the excitement building deep within me.

It was almost as if Saun sensed that her delicate ministrations to my breast were bringing me to the edge. Her eyes locked with mine and between licking and sucking, she whispered, "Mmm, cum for me, Mah." I closed my eyes and brought my hands to her head. I rubbed her head as I ground my wet pussy against her thigh. "Come on ‘Mah', cum for me baby, let it go." It was almost as if she said the magic words. She tugged on my left nipple ring once more and that's all it took. My body shuddered at the intensity of the orgasm that ripped though my body. She held me close as I cried out her name trembling beneath her.

When I finally opened my eyes, Saun was just staring at me. I felt a warmth flood my cheeks. "What are you staring at?" I asked with a weak voice. "You," she answered, "You're beautiful when you cum, you know that?" I've never been so embarrassed in my life. I pulled a pillow from above my head, and covered my face with it. "Don't look at me!" I cried. Saun laughed quietly, "You're my baby, right? If I'm making you feel good I want to feel it, hear it, and I damn sure want to see it, Mah." I didn't move the pillow. I was too embarrassed to let her see my face. "Come on move the pillow, I won't tease you any more." Saun promised. I couldn't allow myself to believe her, and the pillow stayed. "No." I answered flatly.

"Aww, its cool Mah. I know how to get you to move that pillow. I forgot to mention that I want to taste you." Saun smiled. She slid down the length of my body and parted my legs. Saun groaned approvingly at the vision of my brazenly shaved pussy. I was soaking wet from sheer expectation, and my clit pulsed under the weight of her gaze. She affectionately fondled the delicate outer folds of my sex, playfully persuading and manipulating waves of pleasure to radiate throughout my entire body.

Saun slipped two of her long lanky fingers into my smoldering core. We gasped simultaneously. "Ohh, you're so tight." She whispered, as she slowly worked them deeper inside of me. Between the thumb and forefinger of the same hand, she rotated my clit, causing my whole body to tremble at her delicate administration of gentle pressure and steady rhythm. I trembled beneath her leaving a moist slippery trail of my sweet juices on the sheets beneath us. "Oh yeah, I'm loving this tight, juicy pussy baby. Give it to me Mah, give it all to me baby." Her soft sexy commands made it only more erotic. "Oooh, it feels so good inside you baby." She moaned as I let the pillow slide away from my face and watcher her work between my thighs.

"Oh Shyt!" I hissed as Saun's head dipped between my legs and she captured the swollen lips of my cunt in her mouth. My eyes locked with hers as she licked them, carefully sucking and nibbling on each one. Groaning softly she licked the glistening slit between them and spread them apart. Replacing her fingers, Saun's hot, slippery tongue darted into my creamy center, massaging the walls of my hole lapping at my sticky, sweet flow. "Yes, Saun baby, Yes!" I cried, capturing my breast, I rolled my pierced nipple between my fingers furiously. "You taste so damn good to me." She whispered. Once more she slid her tongue deep inside me, tongue fucking me as her nose deliciously pressed up against my bulging clit. I gave up on watching and just lay there with my eyes closed, entranced within the throes of ecstasy.

Sliding her tongue out of me, she began to concentrate on my aching clit. She circled the ultra-sensitive nub slowly and I cried out as her skillful tongue traced the inside of my sex. Pulling my lips further apart, waves of electrical energy soared throughout my body. Rapidly, she flicked the tip of my clit, and tears spilled from my eyes. I bucked and moaned, "Please don't stop!" I never felt anything so good before. Saun sucked my clit into her mouth and pressed the tip of her tongue firmly against it. I wildly bucked my hips and amazingly she held on and never missed a beat. The rapid flicks from her tongue sent me soaring over the edge. I grabbed her head in my hands pulling her deeper still into my quivering flesh. She moaned with me and I cried out as the climax of a lifetime over took me.

I'm not sure what happened after that. When I came too, I was sobbing uncontrollably, and Saun was frantically apologizing and asking me what was wrong. "I don't know!" I cried. "Did I hurt you?" Saun asked. "N – n – n – no" I sobbed. "Stop crying!" Saun shouted. "I-I-I-I can't!" I sniffed. Saun realized we weren't getting anywhere and held me close until I got myself together. "Baby what was all that about?" she asked after I'd been quiet for a while. "I don't know, it felt so good and I just couldn't stop crying." I explained. "I'm sorry I frightened you, hell I frightened myself!" Saun began to laugh and I joined in. What a first experience indeed!

Saun lay next to me, and we both must've drifted off to sleep. I could've only been a few minutes, because it was still dark and sweat still covered my skin. Saun must've been in a deeper sleep than I thought. I slid her boxers off, and slipped my hand between her legs. I caressed her clit gently, trying to go undetected. Saun's eyes sprang open the minute I touched her. I was afraid she was going to stop me again, but instead she pressed my hand between her thighs and ground her pussy into my hand.

I felt powerful knowing I made her feel so good. "Mmm, Mah, yes baby… Uhh huh, Yes!" Saun panted. "Oh yes! Oh yeah, yeah yea!" she cried as an orgasm ripped through her body. Now I was the one holding her while she trembled. "I love you, baby." She whispered when she finally caught her breath. We laid there in silence, rocking slightly and drifted off into a deep sleep.

We slept most of the morning. I could barely tell what time it was as I peered at the clock with swollen eyes. I could feel Saun's breasts pressing against my back as she spooned me. I pulled her closer to me, wanting to stay like that forever. I loved the sensation of her skin against mine. She was waking up as well, and pressed her lips against my neck inspiring my first smile of the day. "Well, good morning to you too." I giggled. I felt her arms squeeze me tight. "Did you sleep well?" She asked? "Did you?" I shot back. We both laughed knowing we passed out from exhaustion and didn't move the entire night. "I'd say we both slept pretty damn good" Saun laughed.

Our chuckles subsided, and Saun turned to me on a serious note. " So how do you feel this morning..." she inquired casually. "You know, about us and all?" I remembered what she said about being afraid that I'd wake up one day and leave her. I wrapped my arms around her and squeezed her tight. "I feel that no matter what, we'll have to take things one day at a time." I explained. "But rest assured, I woke up today still head over heals in love with you Cassaundra Nicolette Stevens."

Saun's cheeks reddened partly because I'd used her middle name, and partly because my words made her feel special. "I told you about using all them names." Saun smiled feigning anger. "I wish you'd never seen my license." "No need to be ashamed of all you foo-foo girlie names, Ms. Stevens. I plan to know everything about you that I can about you." I purred playful as I threw a leg across her body and pulled myself up to straddle her waist. "Oooh… looks like some woke up this morning ready to ride," Saun cooed as she ground her hips beneath me. "Riding is a possibility, but I was thinking more along the lines of a little brunch." I giggled. Saun pulled me forward until our lips met in a good morning kiss. "What do you want for breakfast, beautiful?" Saun asked. "You." I replied with a wide grin. Saun's eyes widened with surprise.

I laughed and ran my hands over Saun's braids. I kissed her once again excitedly and slid down her body until I was positioned between her thighs. My heat began to be wildly. I was nervous because I'd never done anything like this before. "Baby, wait." Saun said in a tiny voice. "I think it's time I told you about my secret." I couldn't believe my ears. She wanted to tell me NOW? "Sweetheart, you can tell me anytime, quit stalling." I giggled. Saun shook her head. "Please, I need you to hear me out." She insisted. I felt a frog rise into my throat. "This must be serious." I thought to myself. Maybe Saun had some sort of disease or something. I didn't know what to think, but the look on her face was scaring me. I slid off of her and lay by her side.

"What is it, baby, are you sick?" I asked. Saun shook her head. "It's not that serious, but I think it's important that you know. "What else could it be? You think that because it's my first time, I won't know how to please you, huh?" I asked. Saun shook her head. "Well hell, Saun you act like it's the first time anyone's every been down there." I sighed in a mater-of-factly tone. "That's because it is." Saun replied in a voice barely above a whisper. I stared at her with a blank look on my face as I tried to understand what she was saying. Finally I had to ask, "What do you mean by that?"

"I mean, this is a first for both of us. This is the secret Yazmeen was referring to last night. I've never let anyone pleasure or even touch or me down there. When she found out how I felt about how I felt about you, she accused me of ‘saving myself' for you. She was hurt that I wouldn't allow her to make love to me the way she wanted to." Saun explained. I almost couldn't believe my ears. Out of all the women she'd been with over the years… "Well Saun if you're uncomfortable with that sort of thing I understand. I'm not going to stop loving you because of it." I offered. "I'd never want to push you into anything you didn't…" Saun silenced me with a kiss.

"I know Mah, but I want you to make love to me." Saun answered shyly. "I just wanted to let you know that you were my first." She explained. "But why me?" I asked. "What if I don't do it right? I don't want to mess up your first time." Saun pulled me close and gave me a reassuring squeeze. "Last night when you touched me, you stirred up something in me. It may be the innocence in your touch, or the fact that I not only love you but I'm in love with you. I trust you enough to let you experience all of me as you have allowed me to do with you. I couldn't bear to push your hand away even though I was nervous, but after a few minutes I didn't want to. I wanted to make you a part of my climax. I wanted you to feel what I was feeling." She explained. "Please baby, I want this so bad. Make love to me."

Before either of us had a chance to chicken out, my warm wet tongue captured one of her exposed nipples. At the same time I slid one of my fingers down between her legs. Evidence of her excitement was already seeping from deep inside her. My fingers brushed across the swollen folds of her pussy and I felt her shudder beneath me. "Mmm, baby."

I slid down the length of her body until I was face to face with her beautiful flower. Wet with the dew of her excitement, her bud seemed to swell before my eyes as it peeked at me from behind her pouting lips. Her aroma was rich and thick and I inhaled deeply. Being that I'd never been this close to another woman's pussy before, I hardly knew where to start. I let her intoxicating scent lead my mouth to where she needed it most, and as my mouth enclosed on her swollen clit, I think I heard Saun scream.

I closed my eyes tight and concentrated on satisfying Saun as best I could. Mimicked some of what she'd done to me the night before. Never taking my mouth from her clit, I slid two fingers deep into her tight hole, curling them slightly upward until I met a soft spongy mass. I rubbed, gently applying pressure, while I trapped her clit between my lips and flicked across her clit wildly. Saun trembled beneath me. Beyond tying to make me stop, she bucked to meet the thrust of my fingers and I felt her hand caress the top of my head. "Ohh, Mah?" She cried. "Ohh it feels so good!"

I wanted so bad to make her cum in my mouth. She was nearing her climax and I knew it. Her juices suddenly became even more plentiful and thicker. Saun locked her legs around my head and ground her pussy onto my tongue. As I felt the first spasm, I clamped my mouth around her clit and pushed my fingers even deeper inside her. For the first time in my life, I was about to have a woman cum in my mouth and I loved every minute of it. Her juices rushed into my mouth, and trickled all over my face and hands. I drank in all of her that I could take and some. "Ohhhhhhhhhh!" Saun cried as her body continued to convulse as the orgasm ripped through her body. I was soaked with her sweetness and road the wave until she collapsed.

I de-tangled myself from between her thighs, and I climbed up to where she laid. Her body glistened with sweat. When I finally reached her face I noticed her eyes were shimmering, brimming with tears. Seeing her on the verge of tears only brought mine on. I took her in my arms and planted kisses all over her face. I can't tell you how honored I was to be Saun's 1st. We laid bed a little while longer before getting up to take a shower together. We spent the rest of the weekend alone together watching the sun rise and set in each other's smile.

That was two weeks ago. How are things going between us? So far, so good. We're taking things one day at a time. Saun officially asked me to be her girlfriend and I accepted. She's been patient and understanding of the fact that being with a woman is new to me. There are issues that I know I'm going to have to deal with like reactions to family, and friends that I'm not sure about how to go about. Ultimately, I'm happier than I've ever been, but I wasn't unhappy to begin with. Being with Saun has been a welcomed addition to an already rich and full existence. I am both nervous and excited about what the future will hold. Looks like there is a bit of truth to the saying ‘the best of friends can be lovers', after all. Saun and I are living proof. Will our love stand the test of time? I guess that's a question only time can tell.

"One thing led to another; soon we were lost in each other. It was so warm, I found in your arms. The best of friends can be lovers, after all."
