Choice Tales from the Vale – (125) Sunburst Surprise
Danny Taylor had been doing a few bits of shopping and delivering Christmas cards around the village.
It was a cold and grey December day in Mornington and there was a biting wind that made his skin tingle and took his breath away.
But after all the errands were complete he headed towards The Old Mill Inn where he took refuge in the bar and made himself comfortable beside the fire where Danny prepared to get on the outside of a pint of Guinness and a large Jameson’s.
Danny’s eyes were drawn to the centre of the room where a striking strawberry blonde was sitting with her long slender legs crossed.
She had a pen in one hand and a large drink in the other and she was concentrating on something, that made her frown, a crossword clue or perhaps a Sudoku and her bottom lip pursed slightly downward almost like a wilting pink rose petal.
He noted that her eye kind of crinkled up and that combined with a slight inclination of her head and gave him the impression she was confused and he assumed her confusion was over what she was studying.
He took a sip of Guinness and then he noticed a flash of golden light in her hair as if her strawberry curls had ignited but it was lit by a shaft of sunlight which had burst through the grey December skies.
Danny realised the sun had made her squint and this in turn screwed up her nose and caused her to sneeze.
She sneezed quite indelicately and then again and again and this fit of sneezing had an added interest to him because apart from the obvious effects the shaft of sunlight had rendered her blouse quite transparent and each sneeze caused her breasts to rearrange themselves rather delightfully within her non-existent blouse and her sneezing fit had taken on a more sensual quality but alas all too soon the sneezing stopped.
But he was pleased to see that her breathing had not and he watched with fascination as with each subsequent breath she took, her breasts reshaped themselves inside her almost invisible bra.
And the bonus was that she was blissfully unaware that her blouse had become translucent.
Of course he should have done the gentlemanly thing and looked away or at the very least alerted her to her situation but in truth he was enjoying it too much.
Her sneezing fit had obviously dislocated her breasts in their cups and so she made some corrections to her bra as each adjustment she made to her straps served to more sharply define her assets on display.
But alas all good things must come to an end and thanks to a thoughtless cloud the shaft of sunlight was snuffed out and the show was over.
It had been a most pleasant respite and had warmed Danny up more than the Jameson’s had, studying her most wondrous topography and he thought it was amazing how the little things in life, not that they were small by any measure, but little things can brighten up the dullest of winter days and it may have been an un-gentlemanly thing to do, ungallant he supposed not to have averted his gaze.
But the rogue inside him thought she only had herself to blame for going out on a cold and grey December day without wearing a vest.
But after the surprising show he was left with a feeling of guilt and arousal although in truth it was mainly arousal.
After she had finished rearranging her chest she turned her attention back to what he now believed to be a crossword and the frown returned to her face.
“Are you stuck?” he asked
“I’m afraid so” she replied
“Do you mind if I have a look?” he asked
“After all I’ve had a good look elsewhere” he thought
“Would you mind” she replied and walked over to his table.
She sat down next to him and they spent a pleasant hour completing the crossword and another one after that just talking but all the while the image of her sunlit form filled his head.
He was fortunate enough later that afternoon to see them again but not on that occasion in the light of a random sunburst, but lit by the firelight glow as they made love on the hearth rug.
