Missing the Signs
It was Friday night and the bar was buzzing. The last deal of the day had yielded ten grand straight profit and life was sweet.
The only downer was the fact that there was just the three of us. Eighteen months earlier we had been the gang of twelve but the trading floor slowly took its toll. One or two had moved on, some had moved upwards, at thirty-three I was almost an old stager.
Of course, a few had settled down into steady relationships, two had married, and now they had different priorities.
I had always told myself that all that could wait until I reached my mid thirties but I did have regrets about Juliette.
She was everything I wanted in a woman; an outrageously good looking blonde with a Cambridge degree, destined for the top. She also enjoyed my love of sports and that extended to her athleticism in the bedroom.
We had been together for almost six months when I took fright. She asked me to move in with her and suddenly everything seemed so grown up. I left her in bed that morning and by the same evening I was getting drunk with the boys and boasting about how I had dumped her.
I ran into her a few days later at an inter-departmental meeting. Apart from the formal courtesies she did not say a single word to me and when I caught her eye her cold stare made me feel like a total shit.
I desperately wanted to ask her to take me back but the truth was that I was too much of a coward to face up to her and was frightened of having my ego bruised if she refused.
I downed my beer, thought to hell with it, and cast my eye around the bar. It was all the usual city types but in one corner there was a group of younger people who looked like students. I would have thought that this particular bar would be a little too pricey for them but they seemed to be at ease and enjoying themselves.
There was one girl in the group that stood out. Normally, she would have slipped beneath my radar, in her case quite literally. I stand six foot three in my stockinged feet and she could not have been much over five foot one or two.
She looked incredibly young but the bar had a strict door policy so she must have been at least eighteen. She had a lovely face and was wearing very minimal makeup. Her blue eyes looked large and innocent and she was flashing a delightful one hundred watt smile.
She had a slim build but, from what I could see, she was nicely proportioned. She was wearing tight jeans but what really caught my eye was her scooped neck tee shirt.
She had fabulous breasts; not large, but deliciously firm and unfettered and her nipples were straining the thin blue cotton.
There were other girls in the bar, much more my usual type, and I had already picked up one or two positive signals, but my eyes kept on flitting back to the group in the corner.
Mindful of the ribbing I would get from my friends, if they suspected me of ogling someone quite so young, I turned my back on the group and rejoined the general hilarity.
"Do you like them?"
I turned as someone nudged my back. She was behind me at the bar, not looking at me but attracting the attention of the barman by waving a couple of banknotes. This, of itself, was unusual as most of the crowd would be running a tab and charging it to their cards.
"Sorry, were you speaking to me?"
"Yes I was. I asked if you liked them. Youve been staring at my tits all evening."
I was flummoxed. In the normal course of events I would have played jack the lad and offered to pay for a better look but there was something disarming about her. I found myself complementing her and blustering an apology.
"You can buy me dinner."
"You mean now?"
"Not now dimbo, Im with my friends. You look as though you flash the cash, you can take me somewhere swanky. Let me have your business card and Ill give you a call."
And that was it. Unusually for me I respected her privacy and averted my gaze for the rest of the evening but, over the next few days, I felt peculiarly on edge.
I even turned down an invitation for drinks with Mandy which, in reality, meant an invitation for some boisterous casual sex.
By the following Saturday I had gone without sex for eight days, which counts as a serious dry spell in my book,
I was showering, getting ready for a serious session at the local rugby club bar and determined to get myself back on track, when she called.
"Its me Zoe."
"Zoe, the girl with the tits."
For reasons I could not explain to myself I immediately felt flustered.
"Im at a loose end tonight. Do you want to buy me that dinner?"
Less than sixty seconds later I put the phone down not quite believing that it had happened. She had asked me to surprise her and so I suggested Taipan the new Asian fusion restaurant. In the event I had to call in a very serious favour to get a table there on a crowed Saturday night.
I arrived on time but she was nearly twenty minutes late and a sizable bribe was needed to keep the table open. I was at the bar when there was a sudden subtle change in the background murmur. She was at the door searching and smiled when her eyes lighted on me.
She was wearing a black cocktail dress which was more haute rue than haute couture but she made it look stunning. It displayed her breasts to great advantage but it was also cut well above the knee allowing me to appreciate just how nice her legs were. She still looked youthful but now she retained an air of refinement.
Over dinner she told me more about herself and our worlds could not have been more different. She was the black sheep of the family and had been thrown out by her parents. She was now living with a friend and filling in with odd jobs whilst she decided what she wanted to do for the long term.
She asked me a lot about my job and then ribbed me by suggesting that I was very much an establishment figure. I was tempted to counter by telling her about my excesses but it did not seem right somehow. It was like talking to a younger sister and I think one or two of the other diners had drawn that conclusion about us.
After the meal she suggested a club and I was strongly tempted to refuse. My hormones were raging and the temptation to take her back to my place was incredible but, rarely for me, my conscience got the upper hand.
I could not disappoint her but, once we were finished at the club, I decided that I would end to our fledgling relationship.
The club itself came as a surprise. It was a bar with a Latin house band and a modest dance floor on which a few couples were putting together some frighteningly professional moves.
When Zoe dragged me out to dance I tried to refuse. I do not like dancing at the best of times and with my body builders physique Latin was most certainly not my thing.
She teased me coquettishly, calling me a spoilsport, and I surrendered for just one dance.
I have no idea what it was but it did not really matter. As I shambled around Zoe danced mercurially. I could not take my eyes off of her as she slinked her body using her breasts and her pert backside to devastating effect. By the time she closed with me for some more intimate moves I had a raging erection which I had no way of hiding.
She teased me mercilessly turning her back and spooning up against me laughing the whole time. At the end of the first dance I was perspiring but she insisted on remaining on the floor.
We, or I should perhaps say she, danced for the better part of hour in which time my erection refused to wilt. In the end I insisted on returning to the bar to avert the imminent danger of coming in my pants.
The urge to get her into bed was greater than ever but, through it all, she was still possessed of a spirit of innocence. I ordered a cab and dropped her off at her modest flat set above a shop before returning home and the lonely pleasures of my own right hand.
I determined to put the whole thing down to experience and get on with my life but, over the next day or two, I found myself distracted and she was constantly in my thoughts. Rather bizarrely, whilst I knew where she lived, I did not know her telephone number.
The bank was laying on a black tie event at the local race course and, for a fleeting moment, I was tempted to invite her if only to show her how the other half lived. Common sense, or perhaps cowardice, prevailed and I thumbed through my address book to find an escort more appropriate to the occasion.
I was actually dressed, ready to go, when she phoned. She had two tickets for a fringe theatre production and asked if I was interested. I do not know why I did it but I feigned a headache and cried off of the black tie even knowing that it would count against me.
I changed into chinos and a rugger shirt and made my way out to the suburbs.
The theatre was a room over a pub and the production was an English translation of a Hungarian play about the Countess Bathory. I was contemplating being bored rigid, and thought I had made a dreadful mistake, but Zoe was as exuberant as ever.
As it turned out the performance verged on the pornographic. The story of The Blood Countess set the scene for a lot of gratuitous nudity and the sexual sadism was almost too well enacted. I felt sure that this was not what Zoe envisaged, and I felt embarrassed for her, but I was having problems of my own again using my cheap programme to cover my burgeoning erection.
For the second date in a row I dropped her home and then took my own pleasure.
This time I did take her phone number but it just made things worse than ever. I knew that I should simply walk away but the temptation to phone was almost overwhelming. For the first time in my life I found myself masturbating over a real person rather than some anonymous porn but it simply made me feel sordid.
After a few days I caved it but it seemed that she had a very lively schedule and she could not meet up until almost a week later. I wanted to talk and suggested a pub. She gave me the name of a place a little further out than I would normally go but I went along with it.
For a Wednesday the pub was pretty crowded and it was only after we had been sitting for a while that I realized why. Just as I was about to broach the subject of where our relationship was going music started up and spotlights illuminated a hitherto shadowed podium.
I saw the girl before I noticed the pole but within seconds she was writhing around it and playing to her audience. I turned to Zoe ask her if she wanted to leave but she shushed me and directed my attention to the stage.
The girl was not bad looking, a pneumatically enhanced blonde who went through the motions of pouting and enticement without appearing totally bored. When it was over I hoped for a break but then I realized that this was, in fact, amateur night.
Another woman went up on stage. She was obviously older but had a nice body shown off to good effect by a micro mini dress. I would not have looked twice at her on the street but she moved well and knowing that some of the flashes of flesh were unintentional gave added titillation.
I joined in the applause but then almost had a heart failure. Before I could stop her Zoe had bounded up and taken the stage. The pounding rhythm of am Afro-Celtic fusion started up and she began her routine.
She was dressed much as I had seen her on that first night. Another form fitting tee shirt with three quarter length jeans over knee boots but for the effect she had on me she might as well have been naked.
I have seen any number of pole dancers over the years but none as sexy as Zoe that night. She moved with a feline grace, her body as one with the music. She had her audience stunned and then baying in appreciation but her eyes never left me.
She seemed to be offering herself up to me piece by piece and my erection ached. I knew that, that night, I had to have her but when she returned to the table she disarmed me with her smile.
I dutifully took her home but over the next few days my work began to suffer. I cocked up a deal when I was thinking in sterling instead of euro and I missed an end of day slam dunk on which all my colleagues cleaned up.
I decided that the only way to get her off my mind was to overcome my scruples and fuck her. For the next three days I tried phoning but kept on getting her voice message.
She did not return my calls and so at the weekend I broke the habit of a lifetime and set off to simply drop in on her.
As I pulled up outside her flat she was just leaving with another woman. I now felt awkward and was on the point of driving away when she spotted me. She came over to the curb with her companion in tow and gave me a smile but I sensed a slightest hint of irritation.
The other woman was introduced as Katie, a friend of Zoes sister, who had agreed to rent a room to Zoe when she was kicked out from home. She was a very attractive brunette and I guessed she was probably in her mid-twenties.
Zoe explained that it was Katies birthday but she had broken up with her boyfriend. They were going to the local pasta restaurant to both celebrate and commiserate. Zoe said that now that I had shown up I could treat them both.
The restaurant was part of a chain, the sort of place I had not frequented for years, but the food was surprisingly good and I managed to pick out a tolerable wine from the list.
By the end of the meal we had almost seen off three bottles and I was growing more enamoured of Katie. She was smart, had a great sense of humour, and was wearing a clingy dress which emphasised a very desirable body. She was the sort of woman I would go for but she paled by comparison with Zoe.
It was her friends day and she duly deferred to her but her very presence lifted me. When they invited me back for coffee I readily accepted and we stopped off along the way so that I could buy a bottle of champagne.
The apartment was Ikea chic but nicely done; lots of bleached wood softened with pale blue fabrics. A pair of cheap, but functional, sofas faced one another across a slab of a coffee table and I felt a tingle when Zoe sat down next to me leaving Katie sitting opposite.
I opened and served the champagne but it was obvious that Katie was slowly getting merry. Her dress had ridden up a little showing off her legs to an immodest degree and as she leant forward to reach for her glass her breasts threatened to spill.
She seemed to be making light of her split from her boyfriend and I casually asked why it had happened on her birthday.
This engendered much hilarity between the two girls and then, still giggling, Katie told me.
"I went out with him for six months and in that whole time he never went down on me once. I told him that I didnt want a birthday present from him but he was going to spend the whole night making me feel good or he was out."
I was taken aback by her forthrightness but I was even more shocked when Zoe replied.
"I bet I know someone who would be really good at it."
She was gazing at me as she said it and, rarely for me, I was lost for words. In truth, I had some sympathy for the guy. I do not like doing it but I will go through the motions if a girl is particularly attractive.
Zoe sidled up to me and whispered in my ear.
"Im flat broke this month and I feel really bad about not buying Katie a present. You can be my present to her. You would do that for me wouldnt you?"
The whole situation was bizarre. It was the last thing I wanted to do but the look on Zoes face made it clear that she saw it all as just a bit of fun and, if I refused, she was going to think me a prude.
She put her hand gently on my shoulder.
"Off you go."
Katie obviously got wind of what was going on because she gave a whoop and flung her legs open.
"Oh yes! Come to mama."
I was almost in a daze as I knelt before her, even now expecting them to call me back from the brink and laugh it off.
At first I thought her panties were navy blue, an odd choice with her light coloured dress, but, as I drew nearer, I saw that they had started the evening much paler but they were now soaked through.
I found this both off-putting and odd. She had obviously been turned on for quite some time, almost as if she had be anticipating this, but our acquaintanceship was barely hours old and she and Zoe had only been alone together for the few minutes it had taken me to use the toilet in the restaurant.
I wondered if there might be an even more unedifying reason for her sopping underwear but the smell of her arousal was thick in the air.
"Take them off for me lover."
She raised herself just enough for me to squeamishly take hold of the damp material and ease it down her legs.
Most women in my recent experience were either totally depilated or maintained just a token growth but Katie retained the sort of unruly thatch that I only associated with ardent feminists.
I was about to call a halt to proceedings when Zoe leaned in to whisper once more.
"Show me what you can do…"
If I have a weakness it is my inability to turn down a challenge. I told myself that I would give it a minute or two just to show what a good sport I was and, at the same time demonstrate to Zoe that I was the unselfish lover that all women dream of.
I overcame the temptation to close my eyes. Her labia were a livid pink and I guessed that the lush growth may have been a partial attempt to disguise them.
"I bet youve done this with hundreds of women…"
Katies casual remark rankled but I was not about to disabuse her.
I set myself between her open legs, conscious of the heat radiating from her thighs, and put my tongue to the sodden nest.
My immediate impression was of a cold wetness but I got past it and ran the flat of my tongue along the length of sex. I could distinctly feel the fleshly corrugations but there was an immediate yielding and I encountered a wet inner smoothness.
The sharp tang, supporting my surmise that her arousal was not recent, made me wince but I pushed my tongue deeper to find a warmer, fresher, taste.
"Oh fuck, I love a man with a long tongue."
Katie sprawled even more lewdly on the sofa as I worked my tongue inside but my face was being distastefully irritated by her moist curls.
I knew I could not keep it up for very much longer and so I delved one final time.
"MMMmmm! Just there!"
As she cried out she scissored her legs around my head and crossed her ankles. I had been breathing as shallowly as I could and now I was caught completely by surprise. I had no time to draw breath as I was squeezed into her sex.
She displayed surprising strength but the crushing of my head was the least of my worries as I found myself fighting for oxygen but, instead, inhaling moisture.
Even now something deep inside would not allow me to show weakness and so I eased my tongue a little and licked more gently to try and make her relax.
After a few seconds it had the desired effect, as she calmed down enough to let me breathe, but she made no move to unfurl her legs.
Now I could not stop without forcing the issue and so I reluctantly kept my tongue at work.
Minutes passed and I had begun to perspire. My shirt felt clammy and my face was wet with a mix of my sweat and her outpouring. Her thighs sealed me in and muted any sound but I was vaguely aware that they were talking, punctuated now and again with peals of laughter.
This added to my increasing anger as it suggested that she had settled down and that I was doing little more than keeping her at a simmer.
