Intimacy

Elle lay awake listening to the summer storm beat the shuttered windows. Half of their four-day vacation had been rained out. But they weren't exactly there for sand and sun. The studio condo held all they required: booze, leftover takeout Chinese, and a bed.

Chris sat up and cracked his neck. As he leaned down and kissed Elle's head, he farted.

“Can't blame that one on Woofy," Elle snickered.

“Guess not," he yawned. "Happy anniversary, Babe." They'd officially been dating two years.

She responded with a tender, closed-mouth kiss. Her morning breath could kill weeds.

Elle headed to the bathroom. She was just going number one, so she didn't bother shutting the door. Chris had nursed her through that stomach bug when stuff was pouring out of both ends. A little pee was nothing.

She returned wearing only her tank top.

“Well, hello," Chris drawled, his brows bouncing.

“Wanna try it again?" She bent over the foot of the bed, presenting her bare behind.

“Um … I thought we decided no gifts.”

Elle answered his smart-ass remark with a mock glare. “Shut up and come here.”

“You sure?” Chris, amused but wary, positioned himself behind her.

She had never reached this level of intimacy with previous boyfriends. Sure, she'd slept with some, but she hadn’t gone there with them. Chris was different. Corny as it sounds, he was her forever.

“Go for it.” Elle teasingly gyrated against Chris's crotch.

“I don’t know. You screamed bloody murder last night.”

“Well,” she huffed. “It hurt.”

Chris's fingers traced the small of her back. “I’m surprised nobody called the cops.”

Come on,” she urged, fisting the nautical quilt and burying her face in the coordinating pillow.

Chris grabbed Elle's ass. With both thumbs, he firmly squeezed the ripe, bulbous zit on her left cheek. The pillow swallowed her squeals as the pus finally burst her skin. Elle stood up, rubbing the sore spot.

“My hero,” she gushed.

Chris pulled her close. "That's love right there, Babe."

  2. This is a story that should have, as the last two words, The End.

  3. I cringed, I giggled, I gasped and then I fell in love with it. You nailed this (ahem) with just the right amount of intimacy, the kind that gets you through the really bad stuff.

    I loved peeking into their world. Great job, as usual.

    1. Thanks for the wonderful feedback, Kir!

      After Hubs read my story, he said, "I see you've gotten inspiration from our life again." :) Yep. Butt-zit-popping intimacy is the real deal.

  4. Either I have a supremely dirty mind or your tricky writing put it in the gutter. Because the zit was a surprise ending. Haha. This was great.

    1. Probably a combination of both. ;)

      Glad the zit was a surprise. Thanks for reading!

  5. Now, that's Love! When you find someone who'll pop your zits, you know your search for a soulmate is over. Great story!

  6. Wow. I'm thankful for the surprise ending on this one. I was about to email you to tell you that you probably need to slap a disclaimer on your post. :-) Thanks for linking up, Ivy.

    1. Haha! Seems to be a lot of dirty minds in this community. This is, after all, just an innocent little story about a butt zit. ;)

  7. This is a cute story with a little twist. The intimate details of real life that no one usually talks about. I love it!

  11. Hilarious! And one or two naughty moments 'off camera' that did not go unnoticed....really funny, and I could not believe it was really going to happen, right up to the end, due to the magic of your writing....suddenly!

    1. Oh, I love everything about this feedback! I'm happy to know the end came as a surprise and I'm thrilled you thought it was going "there" up until then. ;)

      Thank you for the wonderful comment!

  12. Yikes, that is when you know the relationship has moved to the next level. Nicely done, Ivy. I cringed a little less than I would have without the twist!

    1. What's a little butt zit among lovers, right? :)

      Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment, Steph!

  13. Nice surprise ending. "Butt-zit-popping love", alas, I've never had that. My favorite line was "Her morning breath could kill weeds."

    1. I'm glad you liked the morning breath line. It was one of my faves, too.

      Thanks for stopping by. I hope you find butt-zit-popping love some day. I mean, those things are hard to get by yourself. :)

  14. There I was,reading along. Peeing and morning breath... well okay (terrific line, btw, weed killer). Then I start cringing. I'm cringing and thinking, no, it must be me, this cannot be going where, holy shit, *cringe, cringe*, I don't believe... Oh! Oh, gross! Holy shit, Ivy!
    fyi I will never be a zit popper.. Anywhere. Ever. Doesn't mean I can't love you!

    1. LOL! Kymm, I love how you took me through your entire reading experience with this comment. I'm so sorry I caused you such distress over a butt zit. Rest assured I will never, ever, ever go "there." Ewwwww! But making the reader think I'm going "there" is kind of a blast.

      Despite your no-zit-popping policy, I still love ya. ;)

  15. Love! This is the perfect togetherness of couples that have been together for awhile and had a chance to see each other through the gross. It takes you to a different place.

    1. Thanks, Jennifer! That's exactly what I wanted to convey. True intimacy sometimes takes you to the gross places, but there is no judgment, no fear of being ridiculed. Hubs has seen me at my absolute worst and he's still around. That is the real deal.
