Rescue Ch. 08byJohnEvans©
It had been four days since Karina and her group had left the Temple of Aphrodite in Tectin. Ivin, the High Priestess there and the newest member of the group, had startled everyone when they had been preparing to leave Tectin.
She had walked out of the temple in burnished scalemail armor and kilt. An open-faced, high-winged helmet adorned her head and a round shield was affixed to her left arm. Ivin carried two wicked-looking maces in her right hands.
"I meant to ask you about that," said Gedda, pointing at the weapons Ivin was carrying. "Aren't you contradicting your religion with those?"
"Maybe," replied Ivin unconcerned, "but I'm not foolish enough to believe that all my neighbors want to follow the teachings of love and peace. Sometimes, you just have to beat some sense into some folks to make them understand that love is the way."
HighHThe four days passed quickly. Ivin turned out not only to be an excellent equestrian, but she also had an inexhaustible supply of dirty jokes, songs and limericks, which both shocked and delighted everyone else. Octavia, Cendri and Gedda joined in with jokes and songs they knew and the miles passed quickly. The six women were now approaching the city of Cific, the last known location of Alana, the halfling thief who was the first to join up with Per.
"Any ideas of how we'll find her in here?" asked Karina as they passed through the east gate of the city.
"You don't," replied Gedda. "That'll be solely up to me. I'll need five silver pieces to find her, if I can borrow them. Let's get settled at an inn and I'll put out the word that you want to talk to her if she's still here."
After asking around, they went to the Greenspring Inn, A moderate inn known for its good food and pleasant atmosphere. The proprietor welcomed them and assigned them their rooms.
After they had unpacked, Gedda left to make contact with the thieves and cutthroats who would pass the word on to Alana. Karina and the other four women settled down in the taproom of the inn. After several minutes of dead silence between them, Octavia stood up.
"Jagar left us at the same time as Alana. Even though he's no thief, he may still be here in Cific and know where Alana is. I don't know how long we'll be waiting for Gedda to get back, but hunting for Jagar will at least give me something to do. Besides, I can get something to drink at the bars I have to go to."
"Can I come with you?" asked Ivin.
"Sure, one should never go drinking alone."
"Will you be alright if I go along with them?" Cendri asked Karina.
"Why in the world would you want to come along?" teased Octavia.
"If nothing else than to keep you two out of trouble," snipped Cendri snobbishly. "Although, keeping Octavia out of trouble is impossible."
Karina laughed along with everyone else. "Go ahead," she said. "Octavia's right. We'll go crazy just sitting here and waiting. Helga and I can head to the market and replenish our supplies...unless, you wanted to go with them, Helga?" Helga shook her head negatively. "Give me a list of what you need and include the things Gedda might want."
"Gedda doesn't need anything," said Octavia cryptically.
"Of course not, she just borrows anything she needs," added Cendri. "She does have that bad habit of never returning things."
Everyone headed out of the inn. Karina stopped long enough to tell the innkeeper that she and Helga were going out to shop and would be returning shortly in case someone tried to reach them. Octavia, Cendri and Ivin took off for parts unknown.
Karina and Helga headed for the market. They spent the rest of the day shopping for items that had been lost, broken or used up. Helga was amicable, but Karina sensed that she had something on her mind. It was dinnertime by the time the two of them returned to the inn with their parcels. They put the items they had bought in their rooms and went to supper.
"Karina, can we talk privately?" asked Helga shyly as they finished eating.
"Sure, let's go up to your room."
Helga's room was furnished the same as Karina's. Each room had a queen-size bed, a dresser, a chair, and a small round table in it. Needlepoint pictures, no doubt done by the proprietor's wife adorned the wall. Karina sat down on the chair as Helga plopped down on the bed. Helga was nervous and refused to look Karina in the eye.
"Karina, I..." Helga started to say before falling silent.
"Helga, there is nothing so bad that we can't talk about it," said Karina. "Is this about you and Ivin?"
"How did you know?" exclaimed Helga, raising her head swiftly to look at Karina.
"Aphrodite told me in the temple that night," said Karina, deciding quickly to keep quiet about her nocturnal peeping.
"Aph...Aph..." stammered Helga, open-mouthed.
"Aphrodite," said Karina, finishing it off for Helga. "Close your mouth before you swallow a fly. She also said you had good form for what you were doing."
Helga lowered her eyes and blushed furiously. "You're not upset?"
"Helga, I love you," said Karina, getting up and coming over to the bed to put an arm around the girl. "I also love Tenan, Per and even Gar. I told you that we would find you someone some day."
"But I love you!" stated Helga emphatically.
"Isn't your heart big enough to love more than one person at a time?" asked Karina smilingly. "Is what you feel for Ivin the same as what you feel for me?"
"No! Yes...Oh, I don't know," said Helga in frustration. "I know what I feel. I don't know how to put it into words. I'm not even sure how Ivin feels."
"Ask her," said Karina, standing up.
Helga snagged Karina's hand and held it to her cheek. "Don't go," she said with longing in her eyes.
"Helga, I don't want to hurt you or confuse you more," stated Karina patiently.
"I know," said Helga, turning Karina's hand over to kiss the palm. "Maybe Ivin will feel the way I do. Maybe it will be someone else. For right now, I'm satisfied that someone loves me and I can return those feelings. At least, I'm feeling something now. I couldn't...before."
Karina gently pulled Helga to her feet. Cupping Helga's face with her hands, Karina tilted Helga's head and kissed her softly on the lips. Helga sighed with contentment and returned the kiss. Karina's hands stroked up and down Helga's neck and back as the kiss continued. Helga's tongue flicked out to lightly lick Karina on the lips.
Karina took a step back and the two women looked at each other with conspiratorial smiles. She slowly undid the tie in the front of Helga's bodice and then slipped Helga's dress off her shoulders. The dress fell to the floor around Helga's ankles and she stepped out of it. Helga bent down to remove her shoes and then knelt in front of Karina to remove Karina's greaves.
Karina removed her swordbelt and bracers and began unbuckling her padded armor. Helga stood back up to help Karina out of it. Karina breathed a sigh of relief as her breasts, which had been tightly imprisoned in the armor, sprang free. Karina pulled the underpadding off over her head and removed the rest of her undergarments.
"Does it hurt?" asked Helga, lightly touching the impressions left on Karina's breasts by the padded armor.
"No, just uncomfortable to wear," said Karina as she began to massage some feeling back into her tits.
Helga moved around behind Karina and gently kneaded her shoulders and back. Karina stretched and moaned under her ministrations. Helga then moved around in front and softly massaged each of Karina's large breasts with her hands. Karina licked her dry lips as her passion began to flare up. She grasped the bottom of Helga's blouse and slowly pulled it up and off. Helga bent to remove her stockings and then was as naked as Karina was.
Karina stepped forward and kissed Helga again, their breasts and hard nipples brushing up against one another. Helga broke the kiss and pulled Karina over to the bed. She laid down on her side and Karina climbed in beside her.
They kissed again with more passion, their tongues dueling together. Their hands wandered over the other's body, caressing breasts, stroking necks, and touching arms. Helga nuzzled at Karina's throat as Karina nibbled on Helga's earlobe. Helga made to move lower, but was stopped by Karina.
"No, dear, you first."
Karina moved Helga over so that she was lying on her back. Karina got up on her knees and dipped her mouth down to the rosebud of Helga's left nipple. Helga gasped as she felt her nipple and areola get sucked up into Karina's mouth. She moaned as Karina's tongue slithered wetly around and over the hard nub.
Karina's hand slid down over Helga's stomach and pubic hair. Helga wrapped her arms around Karina's head and shoulders as Karina's finger rubbed over the outer lips of Helga's cunt. Peeling the cunt lips apart, Karina was pleased as she felt Helga's juices ooze out. She put a finger right on top of Helga's clit, causing Helga to squirm in delight.
Helga began to breathe heavily as Karina's finger moved in small circles over her clit. Helga's right hand came up to grip her breast tightly in her passion. Karina continued to suck at the other tit and lash at the nipple with her tongue.
Her cunt became wetter as Helga squirmed and moaned. Her passion increased as Karina left off her clitoris and slipped one, then two fingers into Helga's hot, tight cunt. Karina stopped sucking on Helga's breast and started rocking back and forth in time to her fingers fucking in and out of Helga's pussy.
Helga was gasping heavily as her eyes remained locked with Karina's. Her arms trembled down by her side and her cunt became sopping wet as Karina's fingers wormed their way deeper inside. Karina could sense that Helga was close and fucked her fingers in and out of Helga's cunt faster. Helga's breath caught and caught again before she began to hyperventilate as her passion took off like a rocket. Suddenly, she cried out and her hips arched upward. Her pussy gushed out its juices over Karina's fingers as she orgasmed. Helga's arms spasmed and her hands slapped upward to clutch Karina's hanging tits. Karina gasped and was surprised that she almost orgasmed from the pain.
Helga must have seen the pain on Karina's face because she immediately released Karina's breasts, although her body continued to buck and shudder in the throes of her orgasm. It took a few moments for Helga to regain her breath.
"I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to grab them that way," she gasped out when she was able to.
"I wouldn't attempt to swing from them," said Karina with a wry smile. "I'm okay. How about you?"
"Oh, Gods, that was wonderful!" exclaimed Helga as she got up on her knees. "Now, it's your turn if you're game to try something."
"You mean try something like the last time when you wanted to see if Ahhspah's modifications were real?" chuckled Karina. "Sure, what is it?"
"It's a surprise. Turn around and get on your hands and knees facing the foot of the bed. Don't look."
Karina gave Helga a quizzical stare, but did as Helga requested. She felt Helga move around to the head of the bed and heard some jingling. Karina shivered in anticipation and uncertainty. Helga moved around behind her.
"Let's see how hot you are," cooed Helga. She leaned forward and began kissing and nipping at Karina's asscheeks. One hand slid up Karina's thigh and rubbed right over her pussy. Karina already knew her cunt was wet and ready.
"Ooooo, looks like someone's all excited," said Helga softly. She massaged Karina's clit the same way Karina had done to hers earlier.
Karina moaned as Helga's finger became slick from her juices. She felt her body become hot and her breathing heavier. Helga slid two fingers from Karina's clitoris and very, very slowly slipped them into Karina's pussy. Karina's body shook as Helga slowly fucked her fingers in and out of her.
"Let me know when you are ready for your surprise," Helga whispered into Karina's ear.
"I'm more than ready," gasped Karina in passion.
Karina felt Helga pull her fingers out of her cunt and kneel behind her. She then felt something cool and slick touch the outer lip of her pussy. Karina moaned again and shivered as Helga grasped Karina's hips with both hands. The cool object pushed its way deep into Karina's hot pussy and her cunt stretched apart to accommodate the hard object. Helga's hips and legs pressed up against Karina's as the hard shaft imbedded itself into Karina's vagina.
"What...What is that?" panted Karina, her passion flaring as she savored the full feeling in her pussy.
"It's called a strap-on dildo," commented Helga, rotating her hips causing the object in Karina's pussy to move around in a circle.
Karina tried to look down between her legs, but the view was blocked by her massive, hanging melons. Helga readjusted her grip in Karina's hips and began to slowly move her hips back and forth, fucking the dildo in and out of Karina's cunt.
Karina bit her lip in pleasure as the dildo slid almost all the way out of her, only to slowly slide back in again. Her pussy became hotter and tingled as the dildo, slick from her juices, raised her sexual tension. Karina felt her body temperature rise.
"Oh, yes!" cried out Karina. "Fuck me!"
Helga continued to fuck Karina slow and easy with the dildo. Karina ground her teeth in frustration and twice tried to hump backwards to increase the pace. Helga, somehow, anticipated her and maintained control. Karina paned heavily as her pussy tingled and her sexual tension increased very slowly.
Helga kept a firm grip on Karina's hips as she plowed the dildo in and out of her. Karina buried her face into the bed covers and screamed out her frustration that her passion kept building, but she was not being allowed to orgasm. Helga smiled to herself and kept up the relentless pace.
Karina's passion kept building slowly, like a stopped up sink from a slow faucet leak. Her body trembled continuously and she felt that she could not take any more. She shivered and tingled from all the sexual tension that had built up inside her. Karina's nipples were so hard that even a casual graze across the sheets caused them to ache.
Karina gasped, as all that tension seemed to collect together inside her and then flow down to her pussy, where, softly gently, it exploded there. Karina stared ahead wide-eyed, her body shaking, as her orgasm, which had been so slow to build, now seemed to take forever to end. Her juices oozed out of her cunt and she shook and shook as orgasms exploded again and again in her pussy. Finally, as the last little explosion depleted her stored up tension, Karina slumped down onto her elbows, breathing hard into the sheets.
"(Huff, huff)...Gods! How...(huff, huff)," gasped Karina.
"We're not done yet, love," said Helga as she began again to fuck the dildo in and out of Karina's cunt, but at a much faster pace. Karina groaned and braced herself on her elbows.
Helga's hips were smacking against Karina's ass as she, not only increased the pace, but also the force with which she impaled the dildo into Karina. Karina's ass and tits jiggled and bounced with each impact. Her pussy leaked out juice as Karina's passion ignited again.
With a grunt, Karina pushed herself back up onto her hands and started humping backwards against the driven dildo. Her mammoth breasts jerked and bounced with each loud smack of their hips. Karina gasped in time with the dildo's thrusts. Her body shone with a sweaty sheen, but soon sweat was just dripping off her.
Unlike the first time, Karina's passion did not build slowly and continue to build. This time is spiraled upward like a rocket and, all too soon, Karina was shaking and shuddering in the throes of another intense orgasm. She felt drained, but Helga continued to fuck her now gushy cunt with the dildo. Karina was shocked when her sexual tension did not subside.
"Oh! Oh! Oh! OH! OH! OH, NOOO!" cried out Karina as another orgasm overtook her.
Karina's pussy juice was smeared all over the backs of her legs and on Helga's legs. The wet slap of Helga's hips smacking against Karina's ass was barely heard over their heavy breathing. Karina was still shivering and tingling with pent-up sexual tension, in spite of cumming thrice so far. Helga continued to fuck Karina at a relentless pace.
"P...Please, Helga...I...I can't...can't take it...take it anymore," gasped Karina breathlessly. "I...I...OH!"
Karina eyes snapped wide open as Helga thrust her hips forward, shoving the dildo all the way into Karina's pussy. Karina gasped loudly as she felt warm liquid squirt out of the dildo into her womb. That sensation touched off the orgasm that had been waiting inside her. The built-up lust burst like a dam and her body bucked in throes of her orgasm. Legs quivering and unable to catch her breath, Karina collapsed flat on the bed, not even feeling the dildo slide out of her cunt.
Karina shook and twitched on the bed for a while as little micro-orgasms coursed through her body. As her passion settled down, she felt something cool and wet rub up and down on her back. Propping her head up, Karina looked back to see Helga sitting beside her, wiping her sweaty back with a wet washcloth.
"Augh!" moaned Karina as she allowed her head to fall back onto the bed. "I can't move. That was so, so wonderful."
"Was it? Really?" asked Helga. "I wanted to do something special for you."
"Believe me, it was," sighed Karina. She sat up and kissed Helga lightly on the lips. "Thank you, it was special."
Helga hugged Karina and said, "You're welcome."
Karina then noticed that Helga was not wearing the strap-on dildo. "May I see it?" she asked.
Helga reached over the side of the bed and picked the dildo up off the floor. It was about seven inches long and slightly over an inch in diameter. Leather straps were attached to the thing, which had allowed Helga to wear it. The shaft was a white shiny material, which Karina could not identify.
"I could have sworn it squirted inside me," said Karina, still looking intently at the object.
"It did," replied Helga. "There's a small sack for warm oil that attached here. I just squeeze the sack and the oil spurts out through the tip."
"One day, I'll have to use it on you,' said Karina. Helga shuddered in delight at the thought. "For now, we need a bath and some rest."
"You go ahead," said Helga, getting up and pulling on a robe. "I'll take a bath as soon as I have put away some of this stuff. I'll come and get you if any of the others return.'
"I'll be in my room," said Karina, picking up her armor and clothing. "After my bath, I want to change into something more comfortable than this armor."
The rest of the night passed without incident except for when Octavia, Ivin, and Cendri rolled in plastered. Karina and Helga managed to keep the noise down to a dull roar and poured the three of them into their beds.
"Should we wait up for Gedda?" asked Helga as she closed the last door behind her.
"No, she'll be alright,' said Karina. "This is her type of environment. If she doesn't show up by tomorrow, then we'll go looking for her. Goodnight, dear."
"Goodnight," replied Helga before heading off to her room.
Karina got up early the next morning and went down to the kitchen. After obtaining permission from the cook, she mixed together three concoctions. The cook made toast at Karina's request and a serving girl carried all of it upstairs on a tray, following behind Karina. Karina went to Octavia's door first and knocked.
"Go...Owwww...away!" was the slurred reply from beyond the door.
Karina opened the door and walked in with the serving girl hesitantly following her. Octavia was sitting on the bed in her underclothes holding her head in her hands.
"Good morning," said Karina.
Octavia winced and stared at Karina with blood-shot eyes. "Not so loud," she said surly. "I drank too much last night."
