Mornington-By-Mere – (59) The Khaki Ninja (Part 02)
Sharon Taylor was Dave Cooper’s girlfriend and the last time he’d seen her she was wearing the dress uniform of The Downshire Light Infantry after a military funeral in the village a month earlier and he hadn’t seen her since as she had been at the Downshire Light Infantry barracks in Nettlefield.
“What are you doing here?” he said “You didn’t say you were coming home”
“You didn’t ask” she replied
“No I didn’t,” he acknowledged “but that’s because you said you weren’t coming back for another month”
“I got a four day leave” She explained “before we go on an exercise”
“Where to?” he asked
“I can’t say” Sharon Replied. “Anyway, are you ok?”
“Yes” he said dusting himself down and then she kissed him
“You went down like a girl,” she said laughing hysterically
“In a quiet Downshire village I don’t expect to be attacked in the woods by a khaki ninja” he said defensively
She was still laughing when she asked
“Are your folks at home?”
“No everyone’s in Sharpington until tomorrow” he replied
“Are we going back to yours then?” she asked
“Yes but only because I like a bird in uniform” he said and kissed her and then he held her hand as they walked back to her house and all the while Sharon was still ribbing him about how easy he went to ground.
Sharon Taylor’s uniform was, as uniforms go, not the sexiest, it wasn’t the tailored skirt and tunic, brass buttons and polished belt, peaked cap, seamed stockings and khaki knickers kind of uniform.
It was yomping boots, combat trousers and battle dress jacket, but he still hoped for khaki knickers.
But a uniform is a uniform and at the end of the day it was its contents that he was in love with.
He opened the backdoor and let Sharon inside and she immediately bent down and began unlacing her boots and while she was doing that he went into the hall and hung up his coat and slipped his shoes off.
But when he went back into the kitchen Sharon was stood on the back door mat wearing a Khaki vest, matching boxer shorts and her dog tags.
“That will do for me,” he said, as he looked her over
“I don’t have long” she said “I have to report back to barracks on Tuesday” and she walked towards him and they kissed.
“We’d better not waste any more time then” he suggested and they kissed some more as he held her firm muscular body in his arms.
“Where do want me sir?” she asked and threw him a salute
“I think I want you upstairs soldier” he replied “So get up there on the double”
“Yes sir, right away sir”” Sharon said standing to attention and throwing an exaggerated salute and she turned on her heels and ran upstairs and he ran after her.
As they lay cuddled together in the afterglow he said
“I love you soldier”
“Me too, you wuss” she responded and laughed again.
They then spent the afternoon under the duvet very snug and smug where she asked.
“Can I stay tonight?”
“Of course hon” he replied and kissed her
“Good” she said and they fell asleep.
