“Do you think I could take a dip in the hot springs before we go around to the tunnels?” Anna asks.
Man, she really loves those hot springs. “You’re welcome to, but why? You’ll just need it later again after we’re done going around to the tunnels and roleplaying,” I ask.
“I would like to rest for a bit before walking more, and any more sweating is going to turn me into a mess. I would like to clean up beforehand.”
I’m guessing she’s talking about her makeup, and that’s fine. There’s a difference between having makeup messed up from walking around and sweating, and getting fucked and sweating. The former is no fun. The latter is fun.
Well, unless the makeup runs into their eyes. I’ve seen that happen before.
That was why I always told girls that they don’t need makeup. I mean, neither Lily nor Akorya… nor Thera… nor Sophie – pretty much nobody has had makeup on until now, and they’ve all looked perfect without any.
Though, Anna does seem disappointed that her makeup is going to go to waste.
Too bad I can’t fuck after that fun I had with the plant. I don’t want to shoot blanks, and I can tell I’m completely empty thanks to it.
We can either wait until later when I’ll be able to give Anna a full show without anything missing at the cost of her makeup, or we can have sex now while she still has her makeup on but without any cum.
Sorry, Anna, but being able to either pump you full or cover you in cum is more important than having makeup. Besides, now you get more reasons to take a dip in the hot springs which I don’t think you mind.
“I would like to talk with you during my rest as well,” Anna says.
“Want me to take a dip with you?” I ask even though I only just got out of the bath.
“I – I would rather you not.”
So, she came here for sex, was – is wearing makeup for it and everything, but… she’s blushing and looking away because I offered to take a bath with her?
I’ve always hated the “women are impossible to understand” meme because – well, it’s just stupid and they’re no harder to understand than any man is as long as you actually pay attention to them. Treat people like human beings and you can understand them. Who would have thought?
However, Anna is…
I mean, I guess it’s understandable in the same way that a woman might want to show off in a swimsuit but not her underwear when she’s not expecting it. Anna came here for sex, not to bathe together, so she’s only prepared for one of those things.
It still seems silly to me.
“Then I’ll standby while you bathe,” I tell her.
“Very well. Let us do that now then. And, if you wouldn’t mind,” she pauses to look up at Thera, “I would like your company as well.”
“You wish for me to join you?” Thera asks.
“Being on good terms with you may be even more important than being on good terms with him.”
“I’d almost feel offended if I didn’t agree that Thera is the best spider ever who deserves to have more friends,” I say.
“I – I would not quite consider what I have in mind to be the same as friendship.”
“Do not worry about darling’s jests,” Thera says. “To be perfectly honest, you would not miss much if you were to choose to ignore the vast majority of what he says.”
“Just you wait, Thera. I’m going to get you back for all of this teasing. I don’t know when, and I don’t know how, but I’m going to get something to tease you about until you’re begging for me to stop.”
“That does not sound like your usual obsession with consent. Are you saying that you will be forcing your teasing onto me?”
“I mean, yeah, but it’s just teasing and not anything actually bad.”
“Does that matter, darling? It would still be against my consent. From here on until the end of our lives, I revoke all consent to tease me for any matter under any circumstance.”
She might have me there, but banter like this with her is actually really fun. I wish we could do it more often. So, if her being in a good mood means that we get to be friendly like this with each other, then I’ve got to find out how to ensure that she’s always friendly.
“Alright, alright. I consent to your revocation of consent, Thera.”
“Good. Now, it is not very kind of you to make your guest wait,” she says with a smile as if she’s not also responsible for Anna having to wait.
Though, looking over at Anna, she doesn’t seem to mind. She looks like she’s been enjoying listening to us.
“Alright. You two go on in, and I’ll just hang back behind the wall. I won’t peak,” I tell them.
“Good,” Anna says.
“Do try to resist the temptation, darling. I am sure that it will be very… hard for you to resist peaking on two naked women bathing together.”
They head into the bathing area together while I’m stuck behind imagining them doing lewd things to each other while naked in the water.
Yeah, getting to watch Thera dominate Anna would be nice. Or, Anna helping me dominate Thera could be fun, but I can’t really see Anna ever being the dominant type.
Regardless, I sit with my back to the wall and make sure to angle myself so that I can’t even see them out of the corners of my eyes.
“So, what was it you wanted to talk about?” I ask.
“You, mainly,” Anna answers.
“Alright. What about me?”
“I want to know more about you. The more I know about you, the more I can trust you.”
“You were making it sound like you trust me pretty strongly earlier.”
“I believe that you are kind and brave, but that does not mean I can always trust you to be that way. I wish to learn more about your ideals, your drives, and I will share more about myself with you. Building trust is important.”
Seems like she might be better suited for this roleplay thing than I thought she’d be. She might want to build trust for non-sexual reasons whereas I was going to try to build it for sex, but trust is trust and will help our relationship either way.
“Alright. Ask away,” I tell her.
