Concentration filling his face, he slid the elastic off the tail of her braid, slowly unraveling the woven hair. As if he couldn't help himself, he ran his fingers through the bright gold strands, loosening them, trailing them over her shoulders to drape over her breasts. With unsteady hands, he began unbuttoning her thin, white cotton blouse.
The backs of his hands lingered along the inside slopes of her breasts. Serena gasped at the deliberate caress, her eyelids lowering with the pleasure of it.
"Open your eyes, Serena," he coaxed. "I want to see you. Open your pretty blue eyes for me, baby."
Helpless to do otherwise, she obeyed. His silver eyes stayed on hers as his fingers spread her top wide and freed the front clasp of her modest lace bra. The calluses on his fingertips -- earned from years of playing guitar -- rasped her skin with exciting roughness as he slid his hands up her breasts to cup her shoulders, and down her arms. Unnoticed, her bra and blouse fell in a tangle of fabric at their feet.
"You are so beautiful," he whispered, and she believed him.. "So sweet. So special."
Shyness was the furthest thing from her mind when he trailed his eyes down her body, following where his exploring hands led. She had no shame where Finn was concerned. He could do anything, ask anything, and she'd love it. Just like she loved him.
His clever fingers flicked open the button on her shorts, lowered the zipper and slid them down her slender legs.
He stayed on his knees for a moment, arms wrapped around her waist, his lips pressed to her belly. Tenderness filled her, for an instant cooling the heat of passion. She tangled her fingers in the damp black hair at his temples, caressing him gently, lovingly.
"Finn," she whispered.. "My Finn."
The last of his control let go. He surged to his feet and pushed her down on the bed. His weight pressed her body deep into the mattress as he caught her head, trapping her face with firm, gentle hands. Her tongue met his eagerly, twining and sliding together. She whimpered as the final threads of tenderness frayed, and all she felt was want, need. For him.
He gasped into her mouth as her nails dug into his back, scraping a path from his shoulders to the small of his back, just beneath the loose waistband of his cut-offs.
Serena's hands slid around to his front. He lifted his hips to give her room to unbutton, unzip, then she had him.. She stroked him firmly, then teased softly, then firm and long again, as she'd learned he loved it. Her other hand slid in with the first, then beyond to cup and squeeze.
Finn ground himself helplessly into her.
"Serena. Oh, Serena. Oh, baby, yes, like that."
He pushed his hands behind her shoulder blades, bowing her breasts up to his mouth like an offering. The pale pink nipples were hard with desire. She jerked as he sucked one deep into his mouth, rolling it on his tongue, pressing the sensitive bud to the roof of his mouth.
She moaned, and he moaned with her when her grip tightened to a pleasure just short of pain. He thrust harder into her palm, nipping and laving the nipple in his mouth before leaving it to pay homage to the neglected peak.
"Finn," Serena gasped. "Finn, please."
Her naked hips surged against the worn, wet denim keeping her from him.
He rose to his feet, chest heaving as he fought for control. Serena, pale flesh flushed and rosy, her breasts trembling with her heated gasps, watched him with hot eyes. Finn stared at her as if he could burn her image into his mind, hold onto her just as she looked right now. Then he stripped off his cut-offs and covered her body with his.
His big hands glided down her thighs to her knees, pulling them up and back to her waist, opening her wide. Then they were back at her hips, tilting her to receive him.
