After two connecting flights we got back to Roswell late the same night.
Max was so great to me. Of course I let him think that Lonni and Rath attacked me, so it made him protective. Maybe I should play the victim more often.
We got a cab back from the airport and he dropped me off first. He walked me to my door, but I was really disappointed that he didn’t kiss me. I thought maybe he would after he’d been so worried about me on the trip home.
I lingered on the doorstep, but he didn’t even do anything that looked like he might want to kiss me. I moved closer to him, smiling. “Thanks Max, for taking care of me.”
Nervously he moved back, motioning to the cab that was waiting. “Yeah,” he said dismissively. Ummm, it’s really late. I’ll see you later.”
Same old Max, I thought, and rolling my eyes, I went inside. I was going to have to get him used to being around me. Maybe then he wouldn’t be so damned shy.
As I got ready for bed I tried to think what it was about me that made him so nervous. Surely he’d gotten over the fact that I’d thrown myself at him when I’d first arrived. I’d backed off and tried to be his friend, be supportive. I hadn’t even made any sexual innuendos.
Then something else occurred to me. Maybe Liz’s betrayal had made him cautious of all women. He’d thought Liz loved him and she’d slept with someone else. It would make sense for him to worry that it would happen again.
It was up to me to reassure him that I would never do that to him.
Well, I smiled, I would do it to him. I’d just make sure he never knew.
The next morning I slept late and found I was alone in the house, so I headed over to the Crashdown, hoping to see Max there.
And I did see him. He was climbing up the ladder to Liz’s balcony.
I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised. Even though she had betrayed him, practically all he ever thinks about is Liz, and he’d been away from her for days.
He’d even told me on the way home that what Liz had told him about the granolith was the main reason he didn’t take the deal. He gave up the chance to go home because of her.
I wasn’t surprised at that either. I’d just have to work harder to change his mind, but that would have to wait until later. I needed to get him alone, and obviously now was not the time.
With a sigh I went into the Crashdown, hoping I would find Kyle. Instead I saw Maria talking to Brody. They were just saying goodbye, and he got up and left the restaurant. Again I wished I could have asked Larek about our past. It would be great to hear about if from someone who remembered it all.
Of course he might tell me how often my husband left me alone and how lonely I must have been. And just like my past self, I realized I was feeling neglected. Then it occurred to me that maybe that was part of the reason I’d been having sex with all those guys since I’d come to Roswell. Maybe it wasn’t just to gain experience or to scratch my itch, maybe part of it was to get back at Max for ignoring me.
Perhaps this realization would make someone else want to change their ways, make them feel guilty, but to me it was simply an insight into my behavior. I certainly didn’t feel guilt for giving into my urges. Guilt was a human emotion. I was an alien Queen. I did what I wanted, and who I wanted, when I wanted.
And then I thought about Rath.
It wasn’t like I was missing him in a boyfriend way, but I really missed the sex. My body started reacting just thinking about it, and instantly I was aching for some really hot sex. But I had no idea when Rath would be in town. I might have to wait for days or longer to have his gigantic cock inside me again.
Just then my eyes fell on Maria, and suddenly I had to know.
Now Maria and I are not friends. In fact I am pretty sure she wishes that I had never been born. After all she is Liz’s best friend and sees me as the thing keeping Liz and Max apart. So it’s not like I could just go up to Maria and start some girl talk to get the info I wanted. But I am not a normal girl, so I had other options.
Going to the booth where she was still sitting, I slid in across from her. I noted the look of surprise on her face, but ignored it and started using my powers to loosen her inhibitions.
“So Maria,” I started, “you and Michael have been together a while now.”
She smiled. ”It’s hard to believe, isn’t it?” she said with a giggle. “Who would have thought stonewall Guerin could function in a semi-normal relationship?”
I jumped right to the question I really wanted to ask. “So you must have had sex with him.”
She blushed and giggled some more. “Well not exactly sex.”
That could mean several things and I kept going. “But you have seen him naked.”
“Not all of him,” she said with another giggle.
“Damn,” I spat. “I really wanted to know how big he was.”
“Oh I know that,” Maria said, suddenly serious.
My brow creased as I looked at her. “I thought you hadn’t seen him naked.”
“I haven’t,” she agreed. “But I have put my hand in his pants and touched him.”
My eyebrows rose, surprised and kind of impressed. Maybe she wasn’t as uptight as I thought. I nodded again. “So how big is he?”
Maria made a circle with her thumb and fingers and I saw instantly that the size was pretty normal. Nothing as impressive as Rath certainly, and again I wondered if he had used his powers to ‘enhance’ his size.
With another flick of my powers I erased the conversation from Maria’s mind, and she blinked quickly trying to focus on me as the new reality solidified in her mind.
”Tess?” she asked groggily.
I smiled. “Have you seen Kyle?” I asked, giving myself a reason why I was there with her.
Her brow creased and she glanced around the café. “No, he’s not here.”
With a shrug I left the booth. I’d gotten what I needed from her anyway.
And since I had no idea how long I’d have to wait to get what I needed from Rath, I’d have to make other arrangements. And right now my best option was to find Kyle.
I’d had him several times in the past, and he wasn’t as impressive or experienced as Rath but he was convenient, enthusiastic and very willing to please.
I’d been Kyle’s first in fact. It had been the night that I’d taken Kyle to the library so Max and Liz would follow us, before they knew who I really was.
He’d been out with a lot of girls and he was even pretty smooth. He gotten to third base with a couple of girls and he still had a strong memory of Vicky Delaney who apparently could suck-start a lawn blower, but I was the first one he’d had.
I’d teased him all night, not even letting him kiss me, until he was practically panting, and then I’d surprised him and screwed him right in his car. Of course afterward I’d had to mind warp Kyle so he thought it was a dream. Kind of a shame, but I couldn’t take the chance that he might let something slip about us, or worse, fall in love with me.
Or maybe he was lucky. He got to have sex for the first time each time we were together.
I smiled. He would get another first time as soon as I found him.
Unfortunately I didn’t know where he was. He could be out with friends for hours and I didn’t know if I could wait that long. I looked around the Crashdown noticing that there was a group of guys from school. One of them was Danny, a guy I’d had before. If I didn’t find Kyle soon, I could make due with him.
Sitting down at a table, I ordered my favorite, waffles with strawberries and lots of whipped cream, and then covered them with Tabasco. It was an indulgent meal, but I intended on indulging myself in everything I wanted today.
As I slowly ate I sneaked looks at Danny. He did have a good body. I’d only been with him once, mostly because he hadn’t been that good in bed, but I could use my powers to direct him to do what I wanted this time.
I lingered after I’d finished eating, accepting another refill on my drink, wondering how I could get Danny alone. I really didn’t want rumors flying around school that I’d been seen leaving with him. Then it occurred to me that it would be easy to put an idea in his head to leave the café and go around back where I could meet him.
I was just about to do it when the bell above the door rang, drawing my attention, and I smiled when I saw it was Kyle. Instantly my body was aching for him.
He smiled back, coming to sit with me. “How was your trip?” he greeted.
“Fine,” I said, holding his gaze. I was impatient and didn’t feel like a conversation. “Is you dad working?”
He brow creased with curiosity and he nodded. “Yeah until late. Why? You need him for something?”
It was the answer I wanted, and I leaned in close to him. “You know, we never did get around to trimming my lamp.”
For a second it looked like his eyes might pop out of his head, and then he started to sputter. “But, but, but, I thought you and Max . . . I mean you went to with him to New York.”
I had a lie already on my lips. “We decided we’re better as friends,” I purred, my eyes never leaving his. “And I’m really curious to,” I smiled seductively, “try out your equipment.” Reaching under the table I put my hand on his knee. “It is still on the ready?”
He swallowed hard. “It is now,” he practically choked.
I motioned to the door and that is all he needed. We both rose from the table and he nearly fell as the chair leg somehow entwined with his. He was so cute I giggled and barely remembered to leave some money on the table before we left.
Kyle drove fast and I wondered if he was that anxious or if he just didn’t want me to change my mind. We didn’t really talk, and that was fine with me, it was only a few minutes to the house.
We went inside and he shut the door. I could tell he was practically vibrating with eagerness but he didn’t jump me like I thought he might. Instead he stood a few feet away. “Are you sure?” he asked, as if he couldn’t believe his good fortune.
I didn’t answer him but smiled as I pulled my shirt over my head, giving him a preview, and then turned and went into our room.
He followed quickly, practically running and stopped at the foot of the bed with a jerky motion as he came into the room.
His eyes raked over me and that smoothness I remembered came back to him. With three steps he was across the room and took me in his arms, kissing me.
It was a hard, hungry kiss and it made me moan with unfulfilled desire. Usually I let things take their course, but I was so fucking horny I felt like I was melting.
I reached for the hem of his shirt, pulling it over his head. We had to break the kiss briefly and then his lips were back on mine, and I started working on his pants.
He helped me push them and his Calvin’s down his legs as I reached for his erection. Kyle was pretty big, nothing like Rath, but I’d always been satisfied with him.
Pulling back, he broke the kiss. “Slow down,” he said with a strained tone, “we have plenty of time.”
It gave me the chance to check out his magnificent chest. I’d always loved his body since the first time I’d seen it. Kyle was an athlete and he worked out a lot, and it showed. He was much more beautiful than Rath.
Reaching behind me, I unfastened my bra, letting it slide down my arms as I shook my head. “I want you so much,” I said huskily. “I need you now.”
There is no guy who could argue with that and he reached for me again, kissing me hard. His hands went to the fastening on my pants and made quick work of it, pushing them down. He sucked in a quick breath when he discovered I wasn’t wearing any panties.
“Do you always go commando?” he groaned.
I smiled but didn’t answer him. Kicking off my pants and shoes, I got on the bed, my legs open slightly. “Now Kyle,” I demanded.
He started toward me but his pants were still tangled around his feet and he nearly fell over. Quickly he stripped his pants and shoes off, and within seconds that sculpted body was in bed with me. He covered me, settling between my legs as he kissed me again. I could feel the hard length of him pressing against me and I grasped him, leading him to my core.
“This is so fast,” he panted. “Don’t you want to-“
I cut him off. “Shut up and fuck me.”
He complied instantly and with a powerful thrust he was inside and I cried out with the sensation of being filled. “Oh Kyle!”
“Tess,” he panted, “I want it to be good for you.”
“It will be,” I assured him. “I just need you to move.”
He growled as he slowly withdrew and I could feel him twitching inside me. He wouldn’t last long without some help.
As I expected, the sensation of being inside a woman for the first time was practically overwhelming for Kyle and he started pounding into me hard and fast. Usually I would have slowed him down a bit, drawn it out, but today it was exactly what I wanted.
I wrapped my arms and legs around him and moved with him, taking everything he could give me. Then I started a mind warp on him, planting ideas in his head of how to vary his strokes and how to keep from climaxing.
Without breaking his rhythm, he dipped down, kissing me hard and then nipped a trail down my neck to take my breast in his mouth. Pleasure ripped through me and I arched back.
I was so turned on that I wouldn’t last long either. I grasped his ass. “Faster!” I ordered.
He obeyed instantly and I thought he was relieved to do so. His instinct was probably to go as fast as he could.
I was building up so quickly I thought I might cum with each of his strokes.
Kyle panted, trying to hold on. “Tess,” he groaned, and my name on his lips pushed me over the edge.
I cried out as the powerful orgasm ripped through me, and let the mind warp drop so Kyle could cum too. With another two strokes he exploded inside me, grunting harshly as he collapsed on top of me.
For long moments neither of us moved, just gasping for breath.
Finally Kyle propped himself on an elbow, looking down at me with a soft smile. “Wow, I can’t believe that finally happened.”
I smiled. “You were expecting it to happen?” I teased.
Instantly he was tongue-tied. “Well, not expecting, no, more like hoping, but, I mean we’ve been flirting and -“
I cut him off, “I was just kidding, Kyle,” I said.
He smiled. “Well it was amazing.”
I nodded. “Yeah,” I agreed, actually meaning it.
Leaning down he kissed me again. “We didn’t really have any foreplay,” he said, reaching out to brush his thumb over my hard nipple.
“No,” I agreed. “I wanted you too much.”
His smile widened. “I can’t complain about that, but maybe we could make up for it now.”
Reaching out, I smoothed my hand over his chest. “You do have a magnificent body.” With the other hand, I squeezed his butt, making him groan.
“All those crunches are finally paying off,” he said with a laugh.
And while I was exploring, he was busy too. His hand started at my neck, smoothing over my skin down between my breasts and over my stomach. He moved lower, down to where we were still joined and found my clit, rubbing it softly.
I arched back as electricity shot through me and he took the opportunity to envelop my breast in his hot mouth. He sucked and licked my tender flesh sending even more sensations through me.
It felt so good, and I couldn’t help thinking about how different it was to have sex with Kyle and with Rath. Kyle was tender and caring. Rath had no feelings for me at all other than I was a wet, warm place to stick his dick. Rath was just about a good, hard fuck.
And maybe it seemed strange, but I preferred Rath. His huge cock had a lot to do with it, but I found I liked it a bit rough too, plus there were no strings or emotional entanglements.
I’d just had the thought when I felt Kyle growing hard inside me again.
Our eyes met and we both smiled.
We had sex for hours, exploring each other in between bouts. Kyle was a quick study and the sex got better each time as he learned what I liked and how to please me. It was exactly what I needed. Well almost.
After a particularly satisfying climax, Kyle kissed me, stroking my face. “I love you, Tess.”
Disappointment filled me. “Oh Kyle, why did you have to ruin it?”
His face fell. “I don’t understand.”
“This is just sex,” I explained. “We’re not going to date or anything. Max is still my husband.”
He nodded. “Wait, so we’re just messing around until Max decides he wants you?”
He was getting upset and I didn’t want to deal with it, so I started another mind warp on him. “Get up and get dressed, Kyle,” I ordered.
Instantly he slid out of me and got up, gathering his clothes and putting them on. I waved my hand over my body, cleaning myself before getting out of bed and getting dressed. It was a shame that this happened practically every time I had sex with Kyle.
Crossing to him, I concentrated on the memories we’d just made, turning them into a half-remembered dream and replacing the time we were together with a movie marathon we watched before I released him.
He blinked rapidly, adjusting to the new reality before he finally focused on me. “Tess,” he said, the confusion evident in his tone. He focused on the bed and his eyes widened and I knew he was remembering the ‘dream’.
“What do you want, Kyle?” I prompted.
He blushed as his eyes met mine and shook his head. “Mmmmmm, I forgot.”
“You’d forget your head if it wasn’t screwed on,” I teased, but my smile faded quickly. I started to feel a little sad and I wasn’t sure why, but right now I didn’t want to look at him. “I’m going out.”
Walking quickly, I headed to the park, thinking that I might run into Max. I really hadn’t had time to make a plan of how I would get closer to him, but at least I could hang out with him.
I walked around the park three times, each time lingering in front of Max’s house but I didn’t see him and his Jeep wasn’t there. He was probably still with Liz. Finally I gave up and turned to go home and practically ran into Alex.
He seemed as surprised as I was and stammered something about being in the neighborhood. But from the way he was acting I suspected he was doing the same thing I was, hoping to run into Isabel.
And suddenly I remembered that he was really good with computers and it gave me an idea. “So Alex,” I started, “I have a problem and I wonder if you could help.”
Again I surprised him but he nodded expectantly. “What is it?”
“You know the book, the one in the alien language?” I asked.
He nodded. “Sure. I’ve never seen it but I’ve heard about it.”
“Well,” I continued, “we can’t read it. None of us can remember how, and I was wondering if there might be some way of using computers to translate it.”
Alex’s eyebrows rose and he had kind of a half smile on his face. “You know, there just might be.”
