Downshire Diary – (16) When Opposites Attract (Part 10)
“It is lovely” Petra said as Farron and Cressida hugged beside the Writing Desk.
“Gorgeous” Joe said and Petra turned to look at him and realized he had been looking at her when he said it and blushed deeply and to cover her embarrassed she said to her sister-in-law
“Shall we take it inside?” which broke up the prolonged hug.
“Oh yes good idea” Cressida said wanting to do anything but relinquish her hold on Farron.
So Cressida reluctantly tottered inside with Farron and Joe following on carrying the desk and Petra bringing up the rear, while staring at Joe’s rear and they spent the next half an hour following Cressie from room to room while she had them rearrange the furniture to accommodate her prize birthday gift.
Once the perfect location was found Petra had to stop ogling Joe’s bum and suggested they have Champagne to keep him there a little longer, and so everyone had a celebratory glass, except for Joe that is, as he had to stay sober to drive Farron and the van home to Kingfisherbridge.
Two hours and two bottles later the time came for them to leave and the farewells were made and in the courtyard Cressida and Farron shared a rather sloppy drunken kiss and when Petra saw them in their passionate embrace from the doorway she stopped Joe in his tracks.
“That looks like fun” she said and pushed Joe back against the wall and kissed him
“Wow” he said when she allowed him back up for air.
“Do you want to do it again?” she whispered and he answered by kissing her again.
Their kiss, like that of Cressida and Farron lasted for an indeterminate amount of time and was followed by a hastily arranged date for the following Friday and then Petra and Joe emerged noisily into the courtyard from the house which brought the birthday girls snog to an abrupt end.
“Well good night then” Farron said
“Oh yes, goodnight” Cressida echoed “Thank you for my lovely snog, I mean desk”
“It was my pleasure” Farron replied
“Mine was a pleasure too” Petra said quietly and squeezed Joe’s buttock as he climbed into the van.
When Petra woke up the next morning she was not feeling too good due to an excess of alcohol consumed the evening before and apart from the hangover she was also embarrassed.
“I can’t believe I squeezed his arse” she said out loud as she recalled how she and Joe had parted the night before.
Petra was a beautiful young woman and she had been since she was a girl, not that she had used it to any great effect, she wasn’t that kind of person, but it would not have been an exaggeration to say that she had the pick of the men.
So no one was more surprised than she was to find she had fallen for the shy red faced apprentice cabinet maker, but she could not deny that fallen she most certainly had and she was looking forward to her date with Joe on Friday.
