The Morning After
Anna opened her eyes before her alarm went off. Sean was pressed up against her back, his arm draped over her waist. She could feel him breathing against her neck. For the first time in a long while she woke up with a smile. She could get used to waking up like this.
Her mind insisted on focusing on the fact that his naked body was cradling her naked body and his morning erection pressed snugly in between her butt cheeks. She pushed her hips gently backwards, grinding up against his hard cock.
Almost immediately Sean responded by cupping her breast with his hand and kissing her neck. He had been awake, motionless as to not to disturb her.
“Good morning, beautiful.” he whispered in her ear. Anna pressed up against him harder. “Good morning, handsome,” she replied.
“Should I make you breakfast?”
“No,” Anna said with a sigh, “I would rather stay in bed like this a bit longer.”
“Just like this?” Sean asked playfully, pushing against her so his cock rubbed between her buttocks.
“Hmm, well maybe a little more like this,” Anna arched her back, and with the changing angle Sean’s penis slipped easily into her pussy. she was still wet from the night before.
Sean quickly pulled back. “Stop, wait.”
“I’m sorry.” Anna said, embarrassed he had mistaken his playfulness for wanting morning sex.
“I’m not wearing anything.” Sean explained and rolled on his back to grab for the condoms.
“Oh. For a second I thought you weren’t in the mood.” Anna told him honestly.
“Not in the mood?” Sean echoed with a surprised voice. He got the condom on expertly, before she had time to turn to face him or think of an response, he had pulled her towards him and pushed himself deep inside her.
Anna gasped. She pushed back, wanting him deeper still. Sean’s hand glided over her hip, over her belly, down to where her lips started where his fingers found her wetness. As he applied pressure on her clitoris her whole body shivered with pleasure.
“I’ve been hard for you for over an hour,” he whispered in her ear, “I don’t think I could want you more”
The alarm went off. They were too wrapped up in each other to even notice.
Morning sex, Anna decided afterwards, was the best kind of sex. It was slow and dreamy and intense. Less about putting on a show and more about connection. As she lay wrapped in Sean’s arms, trying to catch her breath, she felt loved and loving. Slightly amazed she considered the feeling. It was a little strange to label it love, since she had only known Sean for a short while. But it seemed to be the only label that fit. A little unstable and fragile, like a soap bubble, but no less real because of it. Anna had heard about the sort of love that could be between people in a moment, but never taken the concept that seriously.
The alarm started beeping again. Somehow the noise sounded annoyed. Or maybe she was just projecting her own emotions on her phone. Anna sighed. “I really do have to get up and take a shower,” she told Sean reluctantly.
“Good idea. I’ll come with you.”
Anna looked at him with a smirk. “I’m not sure if that’s a good idea. I’m already running late.”
“I promise all I’ll do is wash you.”
Anna didn’t fully believe him, but she didn’t want to decline his offer either. Once she got out of the shower, she would have to leave for work and Sean would leave too. She didn’t want him to leave.
In the shower they did wash each other, just as Sean promised. With lots of lathered soap and caressing body parts and kissing. That was as far as they went, but still they took way too long, getting out only when the water turned cold. Anna didn’t mind. She could afford to be late.
Getting dressed took longer than usual as well. Anna knew she was trying to stall, pushing the moment they would say goodbye out in front of her. Of course no matter how slowly Anna got ready, she did get ready and so she found herself outside her apartment building, kissing Sean goodbye.
“I’ll call you,” Sean promised.
“You better. Or I’ll be forced to call you,” She replied with a smile.
Sean started to walk away but then turned back. “Can I see you again this weekend?”
Anna felt her stomach flutter. “I would like that.”
The rest of the week passed in a strange, surreal way. At work Anna had bursts of high productivity between her daydreaming when she replayed her night with Sean in her mind. Coming home, the apartment felt strangely empty. But before sadness or loneliness could set in, her phone would vibrate with a text from Sean asking how her day had been. That never failed to lift her mood.
Anna knew she was falling in love, falling hard and fast. With a recklessness she thought she had out grown long ago. There were a couple of moments where she thought about putting the breaks on. Slowing down a bit. But the truth was, she didn’t want to slow down. She was loving every minute of it. Colors seemed brighter, smells smelled sweeter, even music sounded better. She caught herself singing along with songs she didn’t even like from artists she used to make fun of. Her coworkers and boss shot her amused looks and she couldn’t care less. Ron was loving it. He made her tell the story every day, pushing for more details. Anna insisted on keeping things work appropriate. Well, maybe work appropriate-ish. Before she knew it, it was Friday.
From texts and phone calls, Anna knew Sean was keeping himself very busy. He was a little vague about what exactly he was doing. Anna got the impression he wasn’t being secretive so much as up to something he didn’t want to spoil, so she didn’t ask for more detail. Her feeling got confirmed that Friday morning when she got a text just as she walked into her office from Sean.
Can I pick you up after work? I have a little surprise.
