That's Life, Part 2
by Nathan Warford
"She did what?!"
"I'm sorry Sam," said Danielle, "but Erica ran away last night."
"Mother fucker! I can't believe it!"
"Do you have any idea why?" asked Josh.
"I think I do," Danielle said. "Last night, at my house, Erica..." Danielle hesitated.
"...Erica kissed me."
There was a stir among the guests at Josh's victory celebration. "She...she kissed you?" Sam said.
"Yes. And when I turned her down, I must've broken her heart. She just ran out of the house into the pouring rain in her nightgown."
"She got what was coming to her," said Josh.
Danielle turned to Josh with a very disturbed look on her face. "What the fuck did you just say?"
"The lesbo got what was coming to her."
"You fucking take that back!"
"It's the laws of nature. Boys are supposed to be with girls and girls are supposed to be with boys. Boys who like boys and girls attracted to girls shouldn't be allowed to exist."
"So you think that I shouldn't exist?"
A gasp went throughout the crowd, followed by a very long moment of dead silence. "What was that?" Josh asked.
"I asked, 'So you think I shouldn't exist?' That's right Josh, I'm bisexual."
"No you're not."
"Yes I am."
"No you're not."
"Yes I am!"
"No you're not!"
"I'm fucking bisexual! Deal with it!" Danielle started to calm down a bit. "Josh, I still love you. Just because I'm attracted to girls doesn't change the way I feel about you."
Danielle leaned in for a kiss when Josh backed away. "Get the fuck away from me."
"I said, 'Get the fuck away from me'!"
"Come on, Danielle," said Sam. "Let's get out of here."
Sam left and Danielle followed. "That's right!" Josh yelled. "Get out of here! Leave town just like Erica!"
Danielle stopped. "Sam, hold up a moment." Danielle turned around, walked back toward Josh, and kicked him squarely in the crotch. Josh bellowed in pain, clutched his genitals, and fell to the ground in a heap. With Josh incapacitated in the ground, Danielle turned and left with Sam.
Sam was standing outside, looking up at the sky. There was a light drizzle. Danielle saw him lost in his own thoughts. "Sam?" she asked. "You okay?"
"How could this have happened, Danielle? How could everything completely fall apart overnight?"
"I don't know, Sam. I just don't know. That's life, I guess."
"Yeah. That's life."
After a moment of silence, Danielle said, "Come on, Sam. Let's go."
"Yeah." Sam got into the driver's seat of his car and Danielle got into the passenger's seat. Sam drove Danielle home and then drove home himself.
The next few weeks were especially hard on Danielle. Signs were posted all over the city with Erica's face on them, the FBI started an investigation to see if they could find Erica. They even conducted interrogations on a few of the residents of the city, including Danielle. And even after the investigation ended, Danielle got the distinct feeling that everyone at school was talking about her. She never had any idea how many of her friends were homophobes. Aside from her parents, Sam, the few friends she had left, and the allies at the school, Danielle was an outcast. It was not until Danielle graduated from high school that she felt free from the city that had grown to hate her.
Danielle decided to go to college in another state to make sure that she never had to face any of the enemies that she had made at her high school. After graduation, Danielle and her parents moved to the city where the college was. College orientation was less than moderately interesting except for one thing.
Danielle found her dormitory room without much hassle. She took out her room key and let herself in. On one side of the room was an empty desk and an empty bed. But on the other side of the room, there was a bed with flowery patterns and a desk with a phone, computer, and printer set up. Sitting at the desk was a wavy-haired brunette at her computer. "Hello?" Danielle said.
The girl turned to Danielle and the blonde stared into a pair of large, bright blue eyes. "Hi," the girl said. "You must be Danielle."
"I must be." Danielle went to the girl and shook her hand.
"I'm Alexis," said the brunette.
"Nice to meet you, Alexis." Danielle started unpacking her stuff. "So Alexis, what year are you?"
"I'm a freshman. What about you?"
"Think you're ready for college?"
"Don't know. I mean, it's a pretty big step going from high school to college, you know?"
"I know what you mean. I was a little scared also when I first got here."
"Speaking of which, when did you get here?"
"I got here yesterday. What are you majoring in?"
"I haven't decided yet. But I'm thinking of psychology."
"What about you?"
"Something that has to do with life science. Probably biochemistry or marine biology."
Danielle and Alexis became good friends quickly. After several days of living together, the two learned that they had a lot in common, a fondness for singing, an affinity for shopping, and The Matrix as a favorite movie. Over the next few months, Danielle had several boyfriends. Her relationships did not last that long because Danielle found that she never really connected with the boyfriends that she had.
One possibility that Danielle came up with for her lack of male understanding was that she generally preferred women over men. Although she had not had much experience, it was a possibility. She wanted to experiment and test to see whether or not it was true, but she was afraid to tell anybody that she was bisexual. She remembered how she had been ostracized at her high school and was not ready to loose any of the new friends that she had made in college, especially during her first year there.
It was not long before Danielle found a way to experiment without running the risk of being found out. One day, Alexis was getting ready to leave to go to one of the clubs that she liked to go to. She had dressed up in a pair of black jeans and a blue tank-top and was about to leave when Danielle caught up to her. "Al," she said.
"Yes, Dan?" Alexis asked.
"I was wondering. Are you going to the club tonight?"
"Yes, I am."
"Would you mind if I came along?"
"You want to come along with me?"
"Yeah. All I need is something sexy then I can go with you."
"Well, this is a surprise. I've known you for several months now and I've never known you to go to clubs, or even college parties for that matter."
"I don't know. I just feel like partying tonight."
"Okay. Go get ready and I'll wait in the car for you."
Danielle went back to the room and changed into some sexy clothes. She wore a tight, pink T-shirt and a short, black skirt. Alexis was waiting for Danielle in the car when she got to the parking lot. Alexis and Danielle went downtown to the club that Alexis was going to. They stepped inside to see that it was unusually full. "Wow," said Danielle, "I didn't know that there were so many people here."
"It's not usually this full," Alexis replied. "You could easily get lost in a crowd like this."
"In that case, maybe we should split up and meet outside the club at midnight. Sound okay?"
"Sure. Maybe you'll find yourself a boyfriend here."
"That's why I'm here."
Danielle and Alexis entered the club and, sure enough, they soon lost track of each other. Before she implemented her plan, she decided to try meeting guys one last time. So, she partied and flirted with the guys, but nothing really seemed to work. Most of the guys there all ready had girlfriends. And many of the single guys there were complete jerks, only wanting to get into Danielle's pants, and she knew why they were single. So, Danielle decided to execute what she had been planning.
She made a quick look around the club for Alexis to make sure that she would not see Danielle. When Alexis was nowhere to be found, Danielle felt that it was safe to leave. She left the club and walked a few blocks down the street until she came to another club, a gay club. When the blonde walked in, she was surprised to find how many people were there. Suddenly, she realized that she was not as alone as she thought.
Danielle socialized with some of the girls there, but none of them really seemed to be her type. Most of the girls there were either too old, were overly sexualized, or way to butch for Danielle's taste. She danced a bit and then decided to sit down and rest for a while. Not old enough to purchase alcohol, Danielle had two cans of Coke and several glasses of water. As she was sitting at her table, she watched the group of queer clubbers dancing, wishing that she would some day find the one for her. Even in a place where her sexuality was accepted, she still felt like an outcast. She turned away from the dance floor toward the corner and sipped her Coke, feeling very depressed.
"Hey there, Beautiful," a female voice said behind her. "Don't have a dance partner?"
"No," Danielle replied. "What I really want is someone to connect with."
"May I have this next dance with you?"
"Okay." Danielle turned around and looked into a pair of large, bright blue eyes that could only belong to one person. "Al?" said, extremely surprised."
Danielle and Alexis stared into each other's eyes for a very long moment, still unable to believe that the other one was at the gay club. Both Danielle and Alexis tried to speak, but both of their mouths were clocked wide open. Finally, Danielle managed to get a hold of herself and then said in one long breath, "Alexis, I think you're really hot, I've had a crush on you since the day I met you, and I'm deeply in love with you."
The two friends smiled and then embraced. Alexis' lips touched Danielle's and they locked in a passionate kiss. After a minute they broke for air. "I love you too, Danielle," Alexis said.
"But Alexis, what are you doing here? I thought you were at the straight club."
"That was my alibi for going out tonight. It looks like you tried to pull the same trick on me."
"Alexis, you wanna go back to the room?"
"You bet your sweet ass I do."
"How would you know? You've never seen my ass."
"That's the point, isn't it?" The two friends left the club and walked back to the car. Danielle got in the passenger's side and Alexis got in the driver's seat. Without a doubt, Alexis broke one or two traffic laws so that they could get back to the dormitory as quickly as possible. As soon as they arrived, they ran all the way back to their room.
As soon as they were inside as the door was shut, Danielle and Alexis wrapped their arms around each other and pressed their lips tightly together. Alexis stuck out her tongue, parting Danielle's lips. The blonde felt Alexis' tongue meet hers, and she stuck her tongue into her friend's mouth as well. Alexis reached her hands up under Danielle's pink T-shirt, feeling her full breasts through the fabric of her bra. Danielle emitted a small moan, urging Alexis to go on. Alexis pulled the T-shirt up over Danielle's head, revealing her blue cotton bra. Alexis unclasped the bra, letting it fall to the floor, revealing Danielle's boobs. The brunette moved down and sucked one of the nipples into her mouth, causing Danielle to moan in delight.
Alexis released Danielle's nipple and then stripped off her own top and bra. Danielle kissed Alexis again and guided her toward her bed. She lay the brunette down on the bed and stood over her. Danielle quickly shuckled out of her skirt and panties, revealing a pink, very aroused vagina. Alexis, on the other hand, slid her jeans and black silk panties down very slowly and sexily, getting Danielle and herself even more excited. Alexis' mound was clean-shaven with no trace of pubic hair at all. "So beautiful," Danielle said.
The blonde straddled Alexis' body and leaned in for another deep, passionate kiss. She slowly made her way down Alexis' body, leaving kisses all along the way. She took one of Alexis' nipples into her mouth, sucking on the hard nubbin, emitting soft moans from the brunette's mouth. After she was done tasting Alexis' breasts, Danielle continued her way down Alexis' shapely body, stopping momentarily at her navel to tease her belly button. The blonde continued moving south until she found Alexis' pussy, dripping wet with arousal. "I've wanted this for so long," Danielle said.
Alexis looked down at her friend and said, "Me too." Danielle brought her head down to Alexis' vulva and stuck out her tongue, tracing circles around her erect clit. Alexis sighed in bliss as Danielle licked her most sensitive spot. After teasing Alexis' clit for a moment, Danielle started licking the hard bud, making the brunette moan loudly.
"It feels good," Alexis moaned. "It feels so good."
Danielle could only reply, "Mm-hm," as she sucked up the lubrication from Alexis' vagina. Danielle then inserted a finger into Alexis' canal, and then a second. The brunette moaned as her lover filled her vagina as she worked magic on her clit. Alexis squeezed her breasts and pinched her nipples, heightening the sensations of pleasure that Danielle was giving her.
Alexis could feel her climax approaching and Danielle knew it. Alexis was making sounds between moans and cries as her hips rocked toward and away from Danielle's mouth and fingers, both of them moving in a rhythm to each other. Alexis felt the eminence of her orgasm and cried, "Danielle, I'm cumming!" Alexis' body jerked as she started cumming, a sharp exhale accompanying each muscle contraction. Danielle could feel Alexis' pussy walls clamping down on her fingers as juices flowed over her hand.
Alexis came down from her pleasure high and sighed deeply. Danielle climbed back up Alexis' body and kissed her. Danielle sucked on one of her honey-glazed fingers to taste Alexis' love-juice, then brought her hand to Alexis' mouth so that the brunette could taste her own girl-cum. Alexis moaned at the zesty flavor. "I love the way you taste," Danielle said.
"I can tell," Alexis said, smiling up at her friend. "Maybe you'll give me a taste of your fine cuisine as well?" After giving Alexis another brief, but passionate kiss, Danielle moved herself up Alexis' body until her hips were situated over the brunette's head, her vulva inches away from Alexis' face.
Alexis inhaled the scent of Danielle's arousal and was intoxicated by it. She grabbed a hold of Danielle's hips and pulled her pussy into her mouth and started sucking on the soft flesh. Danielle moaned as Alexis ate her muff, licking the erect clitoris while lapping up her pussy juices. The blonde pinched her nipples, sending electric shocks throughout her body straight down to her clit. "God, this feels good," Danielle moaned. "I've never felt anything this good." Whenever Danielle had masturbated, all she felt was only pleasure. But with Alexis' mouth around her cunt, Danielle felt more than just pleasure, she felt love and sensuality that could only be provided by another person.
Danielle felt her knees grow weak and she grabbed the bed-posts for support. The pressure of her approaching orgasm was beginning to build deep inside of her. Her breathing was labored and her hips were practically humping Alexis' face. Knowing the Danielle was on the verge of cumming, Alexis went in for the kill and started flicking the throbbing clit quickly with her tongue and sucked hard on it. There was a sharp intake of air as Danielle reached her plateau. On graze of Alexis' teeth over the engorged clit and Danielle was cumming. She gripped the bed-posts as she cried out in orgasmic delight. Alexis loved the taste of Danielle's honey and was determined to suck up every last drop of it.
Danielle stopped cumming after a minute or so and collapsed beside Alexis, eyes closed, panting heavily. Alexis lay beside Danielle and wrapped her arms around her. As Alexis was kissing Danielle's neck, Danielle started sobbing. "Danielle?" Alexis asked, "What's wrong?"
Danielle opened her eyes and stared lovingly into Alexis' and said, "Oh Alexis, this is just so wonderful. I love you so much."
"I love you too, Danielle." Danielle wrapped her arms around Alexis and they shared another deep, passionate, love-filled kiss.
"How could this have happened, Alexis? How could the two of us have met up in the last place we would expect to find each other, and learn that what we've wanted was right in front of us the whole time?"
"I don't know. That's life, I guess."
"Yeah. That's life."
For the first time in almost two years, Danielle was truly happy. She was no longer an outcast and the person that she was in love with was also very much in love with her. The two lovers got in bed together and embraced, ready to start a beautiful relationship together.
