The following Friday night Addison and Elle went to a party on campus.
Things were going all right, even though Elle was drinking more than Addison
thought was wise, until the jock spotted Craig enter. Elle was too busy
hanging on her as she socialized with people to notice at first, and it
appeared that he didn’t see them either much to Addison’s relief. However
she wasn’t sure she could go through the evening without a confrontation
with the baseball player, but she decided she would do her best to ignore
About ten minutes later though she heard his voice rise above the noise of the music as he yelled, “Well, the king of the dyke squad finally has gotten her queen!” He sneered down at Elle. “I knew you deserved each other.”
“Craig, just leave us alone.” Addison stated. “We’re over here out of your way, so you just go on and be an arrogant asshole. Elle wants nothing to do with you.”
“What the fuck does that have to do with anything? You stole what was rightly mine! She whored herself out to you! You and I have a problem!”
Unable to control her anger, Addison took a swing at him, landing it squarely in his nose. It broke under the pressure as blood spewed all over the both of them. “Yeah, we have a problem all right!” she screamed. “You hit Elle! You think you’re such a big man to hit a woman, much less one her size! You want to fight, try me, Craig!” she yelled pushing him roughly.
Craig charged her knocking her over a table of beer. Both of them went flying over to the ground on the other side as the sound of glass shattered around them, Addison landing on top of him. Both of them wildly swung at each other even though Elle was hollering for them to stop.
“I’m going to kill you!” Craig shouted grabbing Addison by her shoulder length hair with one hand as he slammed his other fist into her jaw.
Addison growled angrily at him as she managed to yank free. “Not if I kill you first, you bastard!” she roared smashing his head against the concrete floor repeatedly as she continued to hammer him with her punching. Finally though people got them separated. Both of them still tried to go after one other even after being restrained by hurling insults at each other.
Elle moved over to Addison and stared up at her harshly. “Stop it, Addy! That’s enough!” she admonished. She then turned a cold stare on Craig. “You leave Addison alone, Craig. You broke up with me, remember? She had nothing to do with this, so you leave her out of it.”
“Fuck you, dykes.” Craig grumbled before being escorted away from the scene.
Once the crowd had dissipated, Elle and Addison were left to themselves for a few moments. “Sorry, Elle. I know you don’t like it when we fight. He just has to understand that I won’t tolerate his attitude toward me and especially you. You deserve to have your honor defended.” she stated.
Addison’s words softened her. Instead of berating the tall woman for fighting, she found herself whispering, “Thank you.”
“You’re welcome. I’ll always protect you, Elle.”
“Did he hurt you at all?” she asked in concern fingering the brunette’s swollen jawline.
“It’s nothing, just a bruise. It’ll go away. He’s worse off than I am.”
“Yeah, you really hurt him and his ego. He was bleeding everywhere. I just hope that it ends here, but I have a bad feeling about this. I hope he doesn’t come back when we least expect it.”
“Not to worry. I’ll be ready if he decides he wants more. You ready to head back to the party now?” Addison inquired lightly encircling the blonde’s waist.
As Elle gazed up into those brown eyes of her friend, suddenly the last thing on her mind was the party. All she wanted was to be alone with this woman being held in her strong arms. “I think I’ve had enough to drink. Maybe we should go.” she suggested.
Addison nodded in agreement, so the two took each others hand as they started to walk back to their houses. Coming to a stop in front of the Delta Nu house, they hugged for a moment. “Well, thanks for the interesting night. I’m sorry again it ended in a fight.” Addison said.
As the tall woman pulled away, Elle felt the loss immediately. Trying not to sound desperate, she mentioned, “It’s still early. You want to come up? We can watch a movie or something?”
Not wanting to be away from the blonde, Addison gave a nod in agreement. “Sure. That sounds like fun.”
Elle smiled brightly leading Addison into the house by the hand. “Great. I’ll even make some popcorn. Why don’t you go on up to my room?”
Addison did as she was told. Being a Friday night, most of the girls of the house were out, so the athlete didn’t see anyone as she walked up to the third floor. Since Elle’s room was already open, she admitted herself, taking a seat on the double bed and kicking off her shoes. Elle came in a few minutes later with a large bowl of popcorn and several movies. “What do you have there?” the brunette inquired.
The blonde set the movies down on the bed for Addison to see. She noted that all of them were emotional girl movies, but she decided that she would gladly endure a sappy film to be with the woman she adored. Elle saw the look on Addison’s face, but she still questioned, “See anything you want to watch?”
The brunette rolled her eyes playfully. “Oh, yeah. I’m just dying to see all these.”
“I’m sorry, Addy, but I don’t have anything else.”
“It’s all right. Let’s watch ‘Steel Magnolias.’ At least it has Julia Roberts in it.” she stated.
Elle gave a nod in agreement before putting it in and taking a seat on the bed as well. The two of them were quiet as they watched the movie, but as it progressed, their arms naturally found their way around each other as Elle leaned her head onto Addison’s shoulder. Two hours later as the credits rolled Addison tried to untangle herself from the sleepy smaller woman, but Elle refused to relinquish her hold. “Stay here tonight, Addy.” she suggested. “Don’t leave me.”
Meeting the blue eyes, the tall woman knew she was helpless to resist. “All right but I have to go to the bathroom first before bed. I’ll be back.”
While Addison was out of the room, Elle took the opportunity to change into her pajamas. Deciding on a revealing pink ensemble, she slipped into it before pulling on her pink robe that was adorned with faux fur. When the softball player returned to find her friend dressed that way, she wanted to laugh at the craziness of the blonde’s style, but even more she wanted to unleash the deep groan welling in her chest at the sight of the blonde’s breasts practically tumbling out of the top of her silk tank. Elle gave a smile asking, “Do you want something to wear?” Addison couldn’t even verbally respond, instead shaking her head quickly. “All right. I just need to wash my face. I’ll be right back. Make yourself comfortable.”
As soon at the tiny woman left the room, Addison let out a strangled moan. She wondered how she would make it through the night with her fantasy sleeping next to her in so little. Deciding just to enjoy the moment and not worry, she stripped off her own clothes until she was only in her t-shirt and women’s jockey boxer shorts. Not knowing which side the blonde usually slept on, she just waited and looked around the room.
Within minutes Elle came back. As she saw the tall dark-haired woman standing there in her underwear, her heart began to hammer nervously. Addison’s body was perfectly displayed in the outfit she was wearing, her strong legs flexing instinctively as the tall woman shifted from on foot to the other.
“I didn’t know which side you slept on.” Addison mumbled.
“Oh, the middle usually but on this side I guess.”
Addison nodded and headed to the far side of the full size bed. More casually than she felt, she slid in and then watched as Elle slipped out of her robe, laying it over her desk chair. Their eyes met briefly for a moment as the blonde came to bed and got in as well. Elle turned off the bedside light leaving them in darkness. At first both of them stayed to themselves as they laid in quiet dark. However as they both began to be a little more comfortable with the idea of being in bed together, their bodies sought each other out, and it was only a matter of time before Addison was spooning against the petite woman as she held her in strong arms.
“You know, Elle, I’ve missed the little sleep overs we used to have.” she whispered.
“Me too. This is nice.” she admitted lightly rubbing the brunette’s forearm. “Good night, Addy.”
“Night, Elle. Sweet dreams.”
Later that night Addison was awakened by noise outside. She heard what was obviously drunk frat guys talking loudly, so she got out of bed and went to the window to investigate. Squinting to see into the darkness, she saw Craig and two of his cronies standing in front of her sorority house. As she watched one of them went up to the front door with a can of spray paint, and she immediately reached for the phone to call security. Even as much as the brunette wanted to go out and put a stop to the incident herself, the bat in Craig’s hand kept her where she was as she simply continued to observe while security was dispatched.
After several moments the three of them congregated half way up the walk to the house, and Addison watched at the baseball player hurled something through the front window before taking off. The shattering of glass awoke the blonde as she jumped up from her bed.
“What was that, Addy?” she asked coming to Addison in the dark and looking out the window.
“I just watched Craig vandalize my house. I’m going to kill that jerk.” she grumbled as security arrived on the scene. “I have to go take care of this. Go back to sleep.” she said making a move to slip on her clothes in the dark.
“You’re coming back, aren’t you?”
“We’ll see. It depends on how long this takes.”
“Then I want to come with you.” Elle insisted reaching for her robe.
Addison didn’t protest and led the way outside to speak to campus security. By the time she made her way across the street, her entire house was awake and inspecting the damage to their house. “Was anyone hurt?” she asked her girls in concern. When they all answered they were fine, Addison then inquired, “What was thrown through the window?”
Kit stepped forward holding a brick in her hand. “Here. I believe this message is for you, Addy.” she stated.
The house president took the brick and looked down at it. Painted across it was the message “Miller Must Die”. “Yeah, that’s for me all right. What did they write on the door?”
“Fuck you, dykes.” Kit replied.
“Addison, do you have any idea who did this?” the female officer asked.
“I know who did it. I stood in the window over there and watched them. It was Craig Wyndham.”
“How do you know that for sure?”
“How many guys on this campus drive a black Porsche convertible? Besides I know it was him, because I saw his face when he jumped in the car. He was wearing a dark shirt and jeans. There was a bandage on the back of his head, and when I saw his face, his eyes and nose were all swollen. He received those injuries tonight during a fight at a party. I know it was him. You all have to do something about this. He’ll just keep doing it until he’s stopped. He really doesn’t like me.”
“Have you given him any reason to dislike you?”
“You mean other than being in existence?” Addison quipped. “Yeah, he’s pissed at me, because he thinks I stole his girlfriend.”
Instinctively all eyes moved to Elle for confirmation. “It’s not true, though. Craig broke up with me several weeks ago, and Addison and I are just friends. He has a real problem with gays, so I don’t doubt for minute that he could’ve done this.”
“Did you see them, Elle?”
“No. I was asleep, and I woke up to see Addy standing by the window. I jumped out of bed and rushed to it just in time to see a black Porsche race away.”
The female officer nodded as she jotted down notes. “All right. I think we have enough to go on to at least question him. I should take that brick for evidence.” Addison handed it over, and everyone began to disburse. Addison and Elle stood for another moment before the officer asked to speak to Addison alone.
Going over to the squad car, the brunette asked, “What’s up?”
The officer glanced over at Elle and then back at the tall woman. “Addison, you know I support your sorority, and I also have suspected through the years that Craig Wyndham was behind this vandalism. You have a real enemy, Addison, and I just want you to be extremely careful. Death threats shouldn’t be taken lightly.”
“I know, but I don’t want my sisters to see that I’m scared for us. I’m supposed to be the strong one. It’s me he wants.”
The officer cracked a smile grin. “Well, it doesn’t help that you’re sleeping with his girlfriend.” she joked.
Addison laughed lightly. “I wish.” she replied. “Is that all?”
“You watch your back. I don’t want to see any of you girls getting hurt.”
“I will. Do you think you have enough to get him this time?”
“I hope. The fact that you’re an eyewitness helps, and the death threat will give this top priority. I want to nail that jerk as much as you do. I’ll do all I can.”
“I appreciate that. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to get back to bed.” she stated with an audacious smile.
“Have fun.” the office stated to her retreating form.
Going back to Elle, Addison put an arm around her shoulders. “I think I should stay here the rest of the night in case they come back.”
“Then I’ll stay with you. I don’t want you here, Addy. It’s too dangerous. Craig isn’t going to stop.”
“I’m not running from Craig Wyndham or any one else. Come on now. Let’s get back to bed.”
The following weekend Delta Nu house threw its annual fall party, but Addison’s entire house was invited to the festivities for the first time in history instead of just having to watch from afar. For the most part there weren’t any problems between houses with almost everyone getting along, with the exception of many of the upperclassmen from the Delta Nu house being rude to their guests.
As Addison stood outside by the pool socializing with other people from campus, she looked across the way to see Elle standing there in a pink sweater set and black pants laughing with some girls from another sorority as she idly sipped wine from her plastic cup. Just then Addison’s dark eyes met Elle’s blue ones. The blonde smiled at her making the softball player’s insides turn into liquid desire and yet she shivered even in her wool sweater. Elle looked beautiful that night, her long golden hair blowing gently in the fall breeze, and her eyes were showing something that Addison had never seen before. The tall woman couldn’t take her eyes off the small woman, every few minutes seeking her out in the heavy crowd, and it seemed Elle was continuously looking her way as well.
Toward the end of the night as people began to fizzle out, the brunette made her way over to Elle. “Hey. I haven’t talked to you all night.” she mentioned.
“I know. I’ve been missing you.” the blonde answered putting her arms around Addison’s waist. She nuzzled the athlete’s sweater for a moment before looking up into her eyes. “Take me upstairs, Addy.” she whispered seductively.
Addison’s heart stopped at the way her friend was gazing at her. Those blues eyes spoke of a longing that Addison felt in her soul, and she knew she wanted to go up to Elle’s bedroom more than she wanted anything else in the world at that moment. However she could smell the alcohol pouring off the blonde making her realize that once again it was the wine talking. Giving a friendly smile, Addison nodded. “Sure, Elle. Let’s go.”
Before she could even say more, the tiny woman grabbed her by the hand and dragged her toward the house. The blonde was clearly on a mission as she practically dragged the jock up the flights of stairs to the third floor. When they were inside the room, Elle locked the door behind them and then stared at Addison with sexual intent. She moved to the brunette and unceremoniously began to pull the dark sweater off her friend.
Addison’s body began to tremble with fervor as the blonde’s hands worked the sweater over her head before working on the buttons on her polo shirt. “Um, Elle, what are you doing?” she finally managed to ask as small hands moved to her belt.
“I want you... to stay here.” she whispered, inside kicking herself for not just being honest with the tall woman. Trying again she softly said, “I want you to make love to me.”
Addison groaned as the little woman’s hands encircled her bare hips and ran up her naked back. Instinctually her own hands moved to Elle’s body pulling the blonde closer. She dipped her head nuzzling the blonde hair as her lips grazed Elle’s ear. As much as Addison wanted to comply with the sensual plea, she knew it would be wrong with Elle being so intoxicated. She wanted their first time together and Elle’s first time in general to be more than a drunken, frenzied lay. “Elle, I love you, but I can’t.” she responded quietly.
The small woman pulled back and looked up at the woman she wanted, trying hard not to cry at the rejection she was receiving. “You don’t love me that way?” she queried.
Not knowing how to respond, the softball player dropped her head forward breaking their gaze. “Elle, we’re friends. You’re asking me to step over that line, and not only that you’re asking me to take your virginity. You deserve your first time to be with someone you love.”
“But I love you, Addy.” she stated. “I thought you loved me too.”
“I do, Elle, which is why I can’t do this. We’ve both had too much to drink. It shouldn’t be this way. It should be romantic and special, and I can’t give you that tonight. I’m sorry.” Addison said as gently as possible as she began to redress.
Seeing the woman she loved preparing to leave, the blonde reached for her again. “Addy, please don’t go. Stay with me tonight. I don’t want to go to bed alone.”
Cupping the petite woman’s face, Addison shook her head. “Sweetie, I can’t. You’re too much of a temptation. You’re beautiful and sexy, and if I stayed I’m not sure I could keep my resolve. I think come morning you’ll be glad that we didn’t do this.” She moved out of Elle’s arms and went to the door. The blonde was just standing there looking crestfallen. “Good night, Elle. I’ll see you tomorrow.”
Elle watched Addison leave before breaking down into tears. Her heart couldn’t bear the refusal of the athlete, and she sunk to her bed as she began to shake in sobs. She didn’t know how she would face Addison the next day after what had transpired between them, because she felt embarrassed by coming onto the tall woman. Wondering what to do, she drifted to sleep.
As soon as Addison left the Delta Nu house, she raced back to her own. However instead of going to her room, she banged on Kit’s door. It took a moment before the shorter brunette answered groggily. “Sorry to wake you, but I have to talk to you right now.” Addison announced barging into the room as Kit flipped on the lights. The catcher saw Stacy in bed and suddenly felt bad for the intrusion, mumbling, “Sorry, Stacy. I didn’t realize you were here as well. I really need to talk to someone.”
“What’s wrong?” the redhead asked sitting up as Kit came back to the bed.
“I have a problem. I just left Elle’s. She asked me to have sex with her.”
“What the hell are you doing here then? That’s what you wanted. Why aren’t you over there right now getting your fill of your fantasy girl?” Kit admonished.
Addison shook her head. “Because she was drunk. It wouldn’t have been right. I don’t know what to do now though. You know how bad I want her, Kit. Did I just screw up? Should I have stayed? Will I ever get a real chance?” the tall woman questioned flopping into the desk chair and looking at her friends helplessly.
“No, you didn’t screw up, Addison.” Stacy assured her. “It was right of you to walk away, because she was drunk. Think about what might have happened had you two had sex and then she woke up in the morning? That would’ve been harmful to your relationship.”
“Rejecting her just now didn’t help either.” the brunette mumbled.
“It was a no win situation, Addison, and you picked the lesser of two evils. Sure you might’ve had the woman of your dreams but not the way you wanted. It would’ve been a let down for you.” Kit said agreeing with her girlfriend.
“But will I ever get the real Elle Woods? That’s what I want to know. Maybe I should’ve taken what was offered in case I never got another chance.”
“Definitely not. You did the right thing, Addison.” Stacy stated. “Elle does want you, but it’s going to take time. Maybe you need to go to her instead of waiting on her to come to you. Clearly she has an interest if she asked you to sleep with her. Why not talk to her about the way you feel? I think it’ll get you farther in the long run.”
“I don’t know. I’ll think about it. I’ve wasted enough of your time for one night. Sorry I barged in.”
“It’s fine. You know we’re always here for you.” Kit told her friend.
“Well, I have something to do in my room now.” she joked referring to abating her desires. “See you two later.”
Both of them chuckled. “Good night, Addison. Keep the moans and groans to a dull roar. We are right next door.” Kit instructed.
Over the next few weeks thing were awkward between the blonde and brunette. Elle always made an excuse not to be alone with Addison, confirming the jock’s suspicion that she had done their relationship permanent damage. However she was convinced it would’ve been worse had she taken Elle in their intoxicated state. Resigned to the fact that things were no longer intimate between them, the softball player tried her best to seem unaffected by the change. Nevertheless when she was alone in her room at night, she still gazed across the street into the window of the woman of her dreams and wished things were different.
Addison’s twenty second birthday was right before winter break that year. Being that it was during exam week, all her house mates decided to throw her a huge party after their final exams, inviting many non-sorority sisters to the function as well. That night the tall woman was just socializing with her guests when she noted the entrance of the little blonde.
Elle was in a pink cashmere sweater and jeans looking decidedly uncomfortable as she said hello to Stacy and Kit who were making out near the door. Excusing herself from her conversation, Addison made her way over. Elle looked up to see the athlete coming toward her, and she began to wonder why she had agreed to come at all. Ever since the horrible incident between them, she didn’t like being around her friend. She was too mortified at the way she had acted that it was easier to pretend that she and the softball player weren’t friends any longer. She had started to devote endless time to the Delta Nus, essentially turning her back on the one person that meant the most to her, because she didn’t know how to handle herself.
“Hey, Elle. Thanks for coming.” Addison said.
The blonde gave a nervous little nod. “Happy birthday, Addy. Here.” She handed the tall woman a wrapped box.
“Thanks. You didn’t have to get me anything. Should I open it now?”
“No. You can do it later. It’s nothing really.” she replied.
“Okay. You want something to drink? I think I might be able to scrounge up some wine for you.”
“I’m fine. Thanks though. I’m just going to say hi to some people. Excuse me. Okay?”
“Sure.” Addison answered not letting how much the brush off hurt her feelings.
As the blonde walked away, Addison shot a helpless glance at Stacy and Kit. “Don’t worry about it. I’ll fix this.” Kit stated. “You two shouldn’t be like this. I’ve got an idea.” Later that evening as the group got more festive with their drinking Kit announced that they should play spin the bottle to liven the party even more. Most of the women were up for the game, so they all sat in a large circle. However Elle didn’t participate, instead hovering in the background watching. After everyone had gone at least once, Kit looked up at Elle who was standing just behind Addison. “Elle, why don’t you sit in just this once? Be a good sport for the birthday girl, will you?”
All eyes moved challengingly toward the little woman. She weighed her options quickly. The worse that could happen was that the bottle would land on her, and Addison would have to kiss her, but the probability of that was minute given the size of the group. “All right, Kit, but just for this one spin.” she responded taking a seat next to Addison. She gave the brunette a look before focusing on the bottle.
Addison spun for her turn, praying silently that it would land on the woman next to her. As it went round and round in the circle, her stomach began to churn. Her eyes drifted across the way to Kit. Her best friend gave a sly grin and wink, making her wonder if the pitcher was planning something. As the glass bottle began to come to a stop, everyone watched expectantly. When it had slowed almost to the end of its journey, Kit extending her hand, roughly stopping it directly on Elle. The whole group murmured under their breaths as the shorter brunette gave a triumphant smile and stated, “Would you look at that? Addison has to kiss the homecoming queen.” Even though it was in clear violation of the rules to impede the bottle in any way, no one said anything as Addison and Elle looked at each other awkwardly. “Well, go on, birthday girl. Eat your Delta Nu treat. You’ve always wanted to have one of those blondes.” she said crassly.
Addison shot her best friend a look. Even though Kit was playing the part of the jerk that moment perfectly, she knew her best friend was only trying to help her win the woman she wanted. Deciding to take the chance, she turned to Elle. Her eyes met the anxious blue ones, but she didn’t let that stop her. Leaning over to Elle, she cupped the back of the petite woman’s fair head. Their eyes remained locked as Addison closed in, but as soon as their lips brushed, everything seemed to melt away except the two of them. Instinctively their arms found their way around each other as the innocent kiss became a more intimate one. It was only when the hooting from their audience began that they broke apart. Their gazes were still only on each other for several moments, expressing more than all the words they had ever exchanged.
Finally Elle looked at Kit, giving her a victorious smile. “There. You didn’t think I would do it, did you?” she questioned before standing a leaving the game.
Addison watched the blonde head over to some other women not playing the game before excusing herself as well. Even though she joined the conversation the blonde was in, they didn’t speak of what had just transpired. About an hour later though, several of the sisters brought out a birthday cake for their president. After the traditional birthday song and wish, Kit asked, “So, Addy, what did you wish for this year? Tell us, and we’ll make it true.”
Addison smiled at the group collectively. “Well, my wish was two-fold, only one part of which I’ll tell you. The first part of my wish was to kiss Elle again.” she stated boldly, looking over at the blue-eyed angel of her dreams. The crowd looked at the blonde expectantly, but the athlete continued teasingly, “But without an audience this time.”
“Well, maybe you’ll get that wish.” Kit conceded with a laugh as she began slicing the cake for the guests. All the women in the room chuckled lightly with the exception of Elle and Addison, who remained staring at each other intently.
Elle finally broke the look passing between them. Her heart was hammering wildly at the way the softball catcher was acting. She had often fantasized of the tall woman being aggressive with her, the woman’s sexy confidence making her body simmer in sexual excitement, and at the moment Elle was on fire from the dark eyes. Making her way out of the room, she headed out the back door to stand on the porch. The cold December air did nothing however to cool her passion. Dropping her head down, she sighed. She didn’t know what to do to make her feelings for the tall woman disappear, and furthermore she didn’t want them to, regardless of how the brunette felt.
For the first time in her life, Elle felt truly alive by the emotions that whirled within her whenever she was near Addison. Everything in her yearned for the all-star catcher, and even though it was difficult to take rejection from her friend, she wouldn’t change the excitement she felt whenever the tall woman was near. As torn as she was over their relationship, secretly Elle still savored every moment, even as awkward as it was to her not to have gotten her way by virtue of being who she was. Suddenly the sound of the screen door creaking pulled her from her thoughts. Turning to look over her shoulder, she saw Addison standing there holding one of her jackets.
“I thought you could use this if you were going to stay out here. It’s cold out tonight.” she stated shyly.
Elle took the extended garment. “Thanks.” she replied slipping it on. She chuckled inside at how the jock’s p-coat dwarfed her.
Addison wanted to smile at the sight of Elle wearing her coat. It was considerably too large, but the blonde still managed to look so alluring to the athlete. Nervously Addison shoved her hands into the front pockets of her tight jeans. “Listen, I’m sorry if you were uncomfortable tonight during the game. Kit was just trying to help me out, but she could’ve been a little less crude.”
Elle shrugged. “Well, she just wanted you to have something to remember on your birthday I guess. I know you’ve always wanted to kiss one of the Delta Nus.” she mumbled turning her back on her friend.
The tall woman shook her head. “You know, Elle, as much as I’ve said that, that’s not really true. I’ve never just wanted any Delta Nu. There’s only been one I’ve ever truly desired.” she whispered. “I only wanted the president.” she stated moving behind the blonde and sliding her arms around the small waist. Elle shivered in her arms. “I’ve only ever wanted you, Elle. You’re the queen of my heart, always have been.” she murmured against the tiny ear as her nose nuzzled Elle’s blonde hair.
Elle gasped at the unexpected gesture, and it was hard for her to even process the information she was just presented as Addison’s hands snaked into the coat. They mapped across the cashmere sweater, taking in her flat midsection and hips as the athlete’s mouth kissed along her soft neck. The blonde’s head began to spin and her body respond to the sensuous feeling, but she suddenly jolted back to reality when those same hands found her breasts. Instantly Elle jerked away from Addison’s arms, retreating a few steps away as she wrapped the jacket more securely around her body. She looked up at the dark-haired woman. Addison’s eyes were showing confusion, but the tall woman said nothing at first as she slid her hands back in her pockets.
They were uneasily quiet for several moments until Addison took a deep breath and stated, “Elle, I’m terribly sorry. I didn’t mean to overstep my boundaries. I just thought...”
“Your hands made your thoughts clear.” the blonde quipped looking away uncomfortably. “Look, I know it’s your birthday and all, but I’m just not sure I can be whatever it is that you want me to tonight.”
“I don’t want you to be anything other than what you are.” quickly Addison stated. “Elle, I thought you were interested in me. I never would’ve made a move if that weren’t the case. Am I totally off base, because if I am, I’m so sorry.”
Elle shook her head. “Addison, I don’t want you to pretend to like me in return just to get laid tonight. I know you don’t feel the same, so don’t act like you do. I might be blonde, but I’m not dumb. I can see through your charade.”
“Elle, do you actually think I would try to take advantage of you? I love you.”
“I know you do as a friend. Don’t ruin what little we have left of our relationship by being fake with me, Addy.”
“Being fake?” Addison questioned with obvious affront. “Elle Deanne Woods, I am in love with you! I have been since the first time I saw you four years ago! You’re all I’ve ever wanted! I can’t believe you would accuse me of being fake! You’re the one that’s being false! You love me too, but you shut me out as a way to convince people that you’re what everyone wants you to be! I’m tired of it, Elle! I’m tired of being put on the back burner, brushed aside, and generally ignored! I want you, and I’m tired of sitting back and watching the opportunity slip further and further out of my reach!” she yelled crossing arms angrily.
Elle’s knees felt weak as she stood there taking in the words Addison had just proclaimed. She knew the brunette was telling the truth, and suddenly things were confusing to her as well. Of all the times she had tried to capture the tall woman’s attention, why hadn’t she seen that she had already succeeded. However one questioned still loomed over her, so she quietly inquired, “Then why didn’t you stay with me that night?”
The athlete let out the breath she was holding. “Oh, Elle, I didn’t want us to move too far too fast. You had a lot to drink that night, too much in my opinion to make for a romantic first encounter. You have no idea how hard it was for me to walk away. I wanted you so badly that night, and when offered yourself to me, I wanted to accept. Every fiber of my being wanted to be with you, but my conscience wouldn’t allow it. I’ve often dreamed of that moment between us, and I wanted it to be special. You’re not some bimbo that I met at bar and laid. You’re the first and only woman I’ve ever loved. You deserve the world, and I want to be the one to give it to you.” she confessed slowly stepping toward the blonde. When Elle showed no sign of retreating, Addison once again enfolded the woman of her dreams in her arms. “Elle, will you please let me give you everything you ever wanted?”
Elle nodded. “Oh, Addy, I love you.”
“I love you too. This was the second part of my wish you know. I wished that you would take me as your girlfriend.”
Giving a smile that made her eyes sparkle, the blonde answered playfully, “Well, now it’s time to take care of that first part.” She raised onto her tips toes as she pulled Addison’s head down for a slow kiss.
It ended after several moments. Grinning stupidly the jock said, “This has to be the best birthday I’ve ever had.”
Elle gave a sexy smile whispering, “You know I think you were busy feeling me up when I interrupted you. Perhaps you’d like to continue that?”
The brunette groaned lightly at the invitation. “Oh, I want to do more than that but when the time is right. For now I think we should get back to the party. I’m sure they’re wondering what happened to us and will come looking any minute. Unless you wanted to be outed as a little lesbo at my party, we better stop for now.” she joked.
Elle’s face became serious. “About that. You wouldn’t mind if this was just between us for now, would you? I mean you can tell Kit, because I’ll probably tell Stacy, but can we just keep it quiet right now? If this gets around campus, Craig might come after you, and I don’t want anything to happen now that I have you.”
“Sure, sweetie. That’s fine with me. I’m just glad to have you for my own. Come on. Let’s get back.” Curving an arm around the blonde’s shoulders, Addison escorted her back into the house.
They tried to sneak back in to the party unnoticed, but Addison’s eyes found her best friend’s. Kit was giving a knowing grin as she approached. “Nice lipstick.” she whispered teasingly. The blonde and brunette both blushed as Addison immediately wiped her mouth with the back of her hand. “I guess your wish came true, huh?”
Giving her departing girlfriend’s posterior a stare as Elle made her way over towards Stacy, Addison replied, “In more ways than one. I’ve died and gone to heaven.”
“That good? Don’t tell me you got in her jeans already.”
The president shook her head. “Tonight I’m going to lay Elle Woods.” she stated with her usual confident smirk.
Kit slapped her on the back as she laughed. “Well, you need to at least wait until we come back from the club. You still want to go, don’t you, or are you going to dump me for some Delta Nu snatch?”
Hearing the slight potential jealousy of her friend, Addison answered, “Don’t you worry. We’re still going. Elle is as good as mine now. I can put off that pleasure for a few hours. Besides seeing her dance might get me going even more. I know the first time I took her to this club, I wanted to jump her so badly. The way she moves those little hips of hers is enough to drive me mad.”
“All right. I think we should round up the troops then. It’s after eleven already.”
Many of the women from the party decided to continue on to the club, so the celebration carried over to all of Addison’s many club friends. As the jock was busy socializing with women Elle didn’t know, the blonde sat on a bar stool next to Stacy and Kit. “So, you finally gave in.” Stacy mentioned.
The blonde nodded. “I have no idea why I didn’t do this before. Look at her. She’s the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen.” dreamily the sorority girl admitted watching Addison from afar. The tall woman was swaying ever so slightly to the music as she conversed with people, putting her perfect backside on display to the small woman. Elle was on fire. She wanted physical contact with the brunette like she needed air. Slipping off her stool, she let her emotions pull her toward her desire. Addison didn’t see her coming being that she was faced away from her but that didn’t stop Elle from sliding up to her from behind and grabbing that heavenly posterior in both her hands. The tall athlete jumped in surprise as she quickly turned to see who had violated her space. Blue eyes met brown. “I don’t like being ignored.” Elle teased. “You’re flirting days are over, Miss Miller. You’ve been spoken for.” she stated pulling the jock out to the dance floor by the belt loops.
Addison gave a grin at the petite woman’s behavior. She often fantasized about Elle being shy and reserved, forcing the softball player to be the aggressive one, but there were times when she dreamed of the blonde being bold and assertive. Seeing the audaciousness come to life, Addison found herself more inflamed with passion, knowing that Elle wanted her just as much as she did the Delta Nu. Without pretense Elle wrapped her arms around the slim waist of her girlfriend and began a sensual grind into her. Addison moaned as she responded in kind. The rest of the evening everyone else was forgotten as the two new lovebirds had eyes only for each other.
Finally they decided to leave the club before the rest of the group, taking Elle’s Mercedes back to campus. The blonde even let Addison drive the fine machinery much to the brunette’s delight. However as she pulled the car to a stop in front of her sorority, they looked at each other somewhat awkwardly. Things were moving so quickly between them that night, and it seemed obvious that they would go up to Addison’s room to make their connection complete, but as the athlete looked across the seat at her girlfriend, she wondered if it would be better for them to wait, even as much as she wanted to forge ahead.
Elle saw the debate on the tall woman’s face. Reaching over to her leg, she rubbed Addison’s thigh gently as she asked, “What’s on your mind, Addy?”
Addison looked at the blonde’s hand intently rubbing her inner thigh through her jeans before making eye contact. Concluding honesty would be the best way to go, she answered, “I really want to ask you to come upstairs with me right now.”
“Okay. That sounds good.” Elle replied. “We can watch a movie or something.” she offered, deliberating testing the waters, because she knew what Addison really wanted.
The brunette looked out the window for a moment before stating plainly, “Or something is more what I had in mind. I was thinking that I wanted to ask you up to have sex with you.”
When Addison looked at her again, Elle felt her heart drop between her thighs as the throbbing pulse became more persistent in a way she had never experienced. Suddenly her breathing was shallow as if she had been doing her normal exercise routine, and she found it difficult to think. “Addy.” she whispered.
“Wait, Elle. Before you feel the need to say something, I just want you to know that I’m not going to ask you to come up for sex right now.”
“Why not?” the blonde inquired with surprise and disappointment on her face.
The softball player smiled. “Because, Elle, I love you. I haven’t been tested in awhile, and I think I should be before we decide to do this.”
“Is there a chance that there is a problem?” Elle asked hesitantly.
“No. Not at all but I just want to make sure. You deserve that, and I have my own reasons too.”
“Such as?” Elle queried, wondering if something was potentially wrong with Addison that she wasn’t admitting to. She hoped that wasn’t the case.
Addison slipped an arm around her girlfriend’s shoulders as she leaned in to the blonde’s ear. “Elle, I’ve never had unprotected sex in my life, but I want you in a way I’ve never wanted any other woman. I want to be able to touch you, the real you without being inhibited by any barriers.” she whispered kissing the fair-headed woman’s neck sensuously as her hand crept up between Elle’s legs. “I want to be able to feel and taste you from the inside. I’ve dreamed of how you smell and taste, Elle, like honeysuckle and strawberries. I’ve fantasized about what my tongue would do to you, how I would give you the ultimate pleasure.” she sexily uttered letting her tongue trace the curvature of the blonde’s ear before spearing into it lightly as her hand gave the seam of Elle’s jeans a persistent squeeze to make her point.
Elle’s hips reacted reflexively, rocking into the pressure as the little woman gave a breathy moan. “Oh, God, Addy.”
“But I can’t do that until I’m tested, because I want to make absolutely certain that I can give you all those things without concern. That is if you want them.” she murmured meeting those blue eyes of her dreams.
Seeing the brown eyes she adored holding such love for her, Elle completely melted. Addison’s arousing words and hands were already working wonders on her body, but the tall woman’s eyes caressed her soul. “Oh, Addison, I love you so much. Promise me you’ll get tested over the break?”
“Of course. This will give us something to look forward to when we get back.”
“I think this might be the first time I’m dreading vacation. I don’t want to be without you for two and half weeks.”
“Don’t worry. I’ll be right by your side every moment until I leave for the airport tomorrow.”
“Let’s not talk about that now.” Elle whispered kissing Addison with intent. “There are better ways to spend our last few hours together.”
Neither realized that they had an audience as they sought each other’s bodies out again. They were so involved in each other that they never saw Craig approach the car. Both of them jolted though as a bat came through the driver’s side window. “Get out of the car, Miller!” he screamed.
“Addison, no. Don’t do it. He’s drunk. He’s going to hurt you.” Elle pleaded when she saw Addison contemplating the situation.
“Call the police, Elle. I’m going to take care of this.”
“Please, Addy. I’m begging you. Don’t.”
“Get out here now, or I’ll come get you!” he threatened.
Addison sighed. She knew this was going to get ugly fast. “Elle, whatever you do, don’t let him near you. You take my keys and go up to the house or stay in the car until the police get here.” Elle dialed the police as soon as Addison got out of the car as Addison had instructed, but she refused to leave her girlfriend outside alone with her psychotic ex.
Addison took a few steps away from the car but kept a distance between herself and the drunken man with the bat. “All right, Craig. I’m out of the car. What do you want?”
“I want what’s mine!” he yelled.
“I don’t have anything that belongs to you, Craig.”
“I want Elle back, you fucking dyke!”
Trying to remain calm, Addison calmly answered, “Well, she’s not mine to give. Elle is her own person. The only one that can make her come back to you is her. I can’t, nor do I want to.”
Suddenly there was movement in the shadows and what started as a one on one situation became even more dangerous when two of Craig’s friends lurked into the dimly moonlit street. Addison glanced around at the three of them warily as they circled her. She knew that her biggest fear of being gay bashed was about to come to life, but to make it worse, Elle was going to witness the event. A brief struggle ensued, but she was no match for the two guys, who soon held her captive by the arms even as much as she struggled. Craig approached smiling complacently with the bat slung over one shoulder.
“You know, Miller, you could be attractive if you just learned to act like a girl. I could show you.” he offered his hand trailing over her body down to the crotch of her jeans. He laughed lightly. “My, my. Elle certainly has you hot and bothered. Is she as wet as you are?”
Unable to do anything, Addison spit in his face. “Fuck you, Craig.” she growled. Instantly the end of the bat connected solidly with her stomach. Addison winced from the pain as she gasped for air. The blow would’ve made her keel over, but she was held upright by her captors.
“Thanks for the invite, Addison, but I’m actually saving myself for Elle. She’s put me off long enough. Now it’s time for her to get it too for playing with me all these years.”
“Over my dead body.” Addison challenged trying in vain to get free.
“Oh, don’t worry. I’ve already arranged for that, but I want you to watch first.” he mentioned tapping her in the temple with the bat hard enough to make his intension obvious.
Elle frantically watched the development unfolding before her. She was terrified for her girlfriend, but she didn’t know what to do. She knew it would be to Addison’s disadvantage to get out of the car to try to help, because there was no way she could hold her own against any of the three, and her girlfriend would have to try to defend them both. However she couldn’t just sit there in the car watching and waiting for the cops to arrive.
Seeing Craig moving toward her, she knew this was her one chance to come to the aid of the woman she loved. She reached across to the ignition and pulled her pepper spray off her key chain, hiding it up her sleeve as the baseball player reached her door. She rolled down the window half way when he knocked. “What do you want, Craig? Let Addison go. This is between you and me.”
“I’ll make you a deal, Elle. I’ll let your precious girlfriend go unharmed, but you have to do something for me.”
“Anything. Just let her go.” she pleaded.
“Anything?” Craig questioned his eyes perusing her body. “Is she really worth a good fuck?”
Elle looked over at Addison who was still struggling and yelling, “Don’t do it, Elle! It’s not worth it!”
Meeting Craig’s eyes again, she responded, “Anything, Craig. It’s just my body. She’ll always have my heart.”
“Very well. That’s enough for me. Give me what has always been mine.” Craig stated with victorious smile as he reached for the door handle to get into the car. As soon as he did, Elle raised her hand to the window, spraying him in the face with her pepper spray. He screamed dropping the bat as he doubled over and covered his eyes in pain. Without missing a beat, the blonde forcefully pushed her car door open, hitting him in the head with it as hard as she could. He fell to the ground as she hopped out and grabbed the bat. Hitting him over the back with it with all her might, she quickly turned to Addison.
The brunette was stunned at the blonde’s ingenuity. She had actually taken down her potential assailant and was starting to come for the two that held the jock captive when the sound of sirens broke the air. The two other men took off leaving Addison and Elle standing in the middle of the street just staring at each other as the cops pulled up to the scene. Craig was still whimpering in pain on the ground and unable to escape.
“Elle.” Addison whispered as the blonde began to tremble. The tall woman reached to embrace her. “It’s okay, baby. Everything’s fine.”
“I hit him with a bat, Addy.” she muttered.
“You defended yourself, Elle, and you defended me. No one would blame you for what you did.” she tried to convince her as the police made a cautious approach.
Addison spoke first being the more calm and rational of the two of them. She tried to comfort Elle the best she could, but she could tell the blonde was struggling with her own display of violence. Fortunately the police on the scene were understanding of the situation, also assuring the little woman of her actions. By the time Craig was hauled off in an ambulance and the two women were left to their own devices after giving their statements, Kit and Stacy had arrived back at the house from the club.
The foursome moved inside to retire for the night but only after Addison retold the highlights of the encounter with Craig. As Elle and Addison prepared for bed, the softball catcher noticed how quiet the little woman was. Cuddling in the twin bed after changing clothes, Addison asked, “Are you all right, Elle?”
“I was so scared, Addy. I can’t believe I hit him with that bat. I could’ve killed him.”
“You did what you had to in order to defend yourself.”
“I just don’t know what came over me. I was enraged with the way he was hurting you. I realize now that I would’ve done anything to get him to stop. I couldn’t let him hurt you. It was bad enough I allowed him to sexually assault you and hit you with that bat.”
“It’s okay. He just groped me. It wasn’t that big of a deal considering what he said he would do to you. I felt the same way you did. I would’ve killed him or died trying to stop him from raping you. There was no way I would’ve been able to look myself in the mirror had that happened.”
“That’s why I offered myself. I didn’t want him to hurt you even more. I couldn’t stand it.” she cried softly.
“Shh. It’s all right. We’re both safe now. You saved us. You’re my heroine, Elle Woods. You stood up against my greatest enemy in my defense and won. You have my admiration and adoration.”
Elle caressed Addison’s face in the dark. “I’m just glad you’re safe.”
“I don’t think Craig will be bothering us any more.”
“I love you, Addison Miller.”
“I love you too, Elle Woods.” she answered kissing her girlfriend’s lips gently as she tightened her hold on the blonde.
Elle giggled lightly. “You know, I’m sorry he interrupted us in the car. Things were getting good.”
“Yes, they were.” the brunette growled sexually in agreement.
“About what you said, now that my brain has started working again, I just want you to know that I understand and agree with you about waiting until you’re tested. It just shows even more how caring and thoughtful you are. Of course I should tell you that I have fantasies about our first time too.”
“I want it to be romantic and special. Maybe we could go away together, just so it’s only the two of us. No Kit, Stacy, school, Delta Nus, or Lambda Kappas, just you and me. I want to know what it’s like to really be loved, Addy. I want to look in your eyes and see them gazing at me adoringly as they always do the moment I feel you inside of me for the first time.” she whispered, feeling confidence in the dark to reveal her deepest secrets. Hearing the uneven exhale of her girlfriend, Elle knew she had the woman’s full attention.
“What else, Elle?” Addison questioned.
Encouraged by the question, she continued, “I want to hold your body close to mine. I want to feel the weight of you on top of me as you take me to places I’ve never been before.”
The brunette gave a groan. “Elle Woods, you might be the death of me talking that way. You have no idea what you do to me.”
Giggling lightly Elle let her hand slip off Addison’s hip and between her thighs. Fingering the flannel boxers, she felt the heat emanating from her girlfriend’s body. “Oh, I think I do.” she replied.
The softball player’s head was swooning as petite fingers teasingly trailed under the hem of her shorts to her bare leg. “You’re going to get yourself into a whole lot of trouble doing that.” she warned. “I’m not a woman known for my patience. Much more of that and I might say to hell with waiting. I just have to take you right now.”
“You wouldn’t dare.” the blonde contested. In a flurry of movement, Elle suddenly found herself pinned under a strong body. Addison’s breathing was erratic and shallow as it brushed across her face. The athlete’s large hands swiftly peeled Elle’s pink flannel night shirt away. The debutante responded with a small gasp. She knew for a fact that Addison would keep her word, but she enjoyed pushing her to the edge, so she returned the effort, slipping the dark t-shirt off her girlfriend. They exchanged gazes in the dark. Addison moved her hands to either side of the blonde’s tiny pink and white floral bikinis. She raised her brow questioningly at the little woman. Knowing that this was a no lose situation for her, Elle simply raised her hips off the bed in invitation. Within seconds she was laying bare to her girlfriend’s gaze.
Addison took a moment to glance over Elle’s nakedness in the semi-darkness. Her pale skin almost glowed in the faint light of the moon. The jock whimpered at the sight of the beauty before her. In her entire life she had never seen a woman as flawless to her as Elle. “You are the most stunning woman I’ve ever seen.” she confessed. “Every inch of you is so beautiful. I’ve never seen anything like it. You’re beyond perfect.” Her hand lightly caressed the blonde’s side before running up to her breast in adoration.
The Delta Nu’s body responded to the gentle yet knowing touch, her chest slightly rising into it. “You make me feel beautiful, Addy.” Their eyes met again.
“I love you, Elle Woods.”
“I love you too, Addison Miller. Thank you for being mine.” The small woman pulled Addison’s half naked frame down into her own for a kiss. “I want you so badly. I wish we didn’t have to wait.”
“I know, but I can still make you feel good other ways.” the catcher promised letting her mouth trail down her girlfriend’s neck to her breasts.
Elle gasped lightly as she felt her lover’s mouth adoring her femininity. Even as much as she desperately wanted Addison to go back on her word, the brunette never pushed for more that evening, leaving Elle longing for the day they could make love for the first time. If the athlete’s mouth was any indication, the blonde knew ecstasy awaited her when they could be together completely. As they drifted to sleep that night, Elle lovingly caressed Addison’s dark hair as the jock snuggled into her naked chest. The little woman had never felt so content with anyone else in her entire life. She felt protected under the weight of her lover and yet there was a vulnerability in the tall woman that Elle found endearing.
