Chalet for Three
a short erotic romance by Michelle Graham

“My fingers are going to fall off!” Liz exclaimed, stamping her feet on the mat outside the cottage door. She opened it and stepped inside, relishing the warm air that enveloped her.

“You need to get better gloves,” Jane told her. “Those ones are far too thin for these long treks.” She closed the door behind them.

Liz wasn’t sorry to be leaving the cold outside. She enjoyed her ski trips with Jane and her husband, Matt, but she really did need to invest in better gear. She pulled off the offending gloves, stuffed them in the pocket of her ski jacket, and began to pull off her boots. Jane did the same nearby.

“Hey, girls!” Matt called from the other room. “I’ve got some soup all ready for you!”

“Your husband is amazing,” Liz said as they made their way to the kitchen. “He may just keep me from dying of hypothermia.”

Matt smiled and swatted her on the butt. “You know I love to help keep you warm, Liz,” he teased. He waved her toward the table, which was set for three. Steam wafted up from the soup bowls and large glasses of wine stood at each place. The three friends settled in to enjoy their lunch.

By the time the sun had faded from the sky outside, three empty wine bottles stood on the kitchen counter. Liz, Jane, and Matt were seated on the floor in front of the fire. Liz was definitely warm now, and her head spun a bit from the alcohol. They were giggling like kids as they played Truth or Dare. It was juvenile, but they were having a blast. Matt had just finished confessing the time he got caught masturbating in the bathroom at a party in high school. The girls collapsed against each other, their laughter ringing through the room.

“Your turn, Liz,” Matt said when they had calmed down a bit. “Truth or Dare?”

“Truth,” Liz replied.

He grinned mischievously at her. Leaning close, he whispered, “Have you ever fucked another girl?”

Liz laughed. “No!”

His eyes darkened, and the laughter faded from Liz’s mouth as she gazed at his deep brown eyes. She didn’t know why, but suddenly her stomach was tightening oddly, and her heart began to beat faster.

“Would you?” he asked.

“Would I what?”

“Would you fuck another girl?” His gaze held hers and he reached out a hand to touch her knee.

A thrill raced through Liz. He had touched her before, in much more overtly sexual ways, but it had never felt like this. What is he doing? She felt hands on her shoulders and turned her head slightly to see Jane right behind her. As she looked at her best friend, her nipples hardened, and her pussy gave a slight spasm. Before she could think about anything else, Jane’s lips were pressed against hers.

Liz didn’t know if it was the wine, or the kiss, but her head was spinning. Jane’s lips were so soft against hers, and she slid her tongue against Liz’s, stroking it slowly. Liz liked men, but something about Jane’s kiss left her gasping, and she realized that perhaps she would fuck another girl. Or maybe it’s just this girl. Jane pushed her gently to the floor and lay on top of her. She moved her lips across Liz’s jaw to her ear and Liz moaned softly when her friend gently licked the curve of her ear and sucked the lobe between her lips. She tentatively placed her arms around Jane’s shoulders, something she had done before, but now it had so much more meaning.

Liz slid a hand down Jane’s back until it cupped her ass. Jane moaned against her neck, sending shivers through Liz’s body. Jane moved one hand up to cup Liz’s breast, squeezing and rubbing her nipple through the shirt.

“Jane,” Liz breathed. “That feels so good!”

Jane lifted her head and Liz stared up into her best friend’s beautiful blue eyes. “Liz, I’ve wanted this for so long,” she said quietly. “I’ve loved you for so long,” she added.

Liz’s eyes widened. “You…love me?”

Matt’s voice beside her head answered. “We both do. And it would make us so happy if we could love you for the rest of our lives.”

Could she love them? Both of them? Liz looked first at Jane, then at Matt, and knew that she already did.

  18. A hot winter night to me is either sitting by the fire snuggling under a comfy throw just talking or watching a movie with the love of your life…that is heaven! You can’t ask for anything better…

    Thanks for the opportunity to share, meet new authors and perhaps snag new books to read.
