Author's Notes: HOLY HELL! I promised myself I wasn't going to start this one until I fully fleshed out the idea. Mostly because I didn't want a repeat of Pet where I was working with the bare bones of an idea and not having the whole thing prepared enough to continue on with a good story full of twists and turns. I have this one mostly fleshed out. I know basically where I'm going which is how a lot of my stories are. If I know basically where I'm going to land then I can get there. Also I must say the response to Pet was rather overwhelming. It seemed to be by far the most popular of all my stories so really this one probably wouldn't have gotten written had it not been for that. I can't gurantee that this one will get worked on a lot. That's not to say it won't get worked on but it may not be up there on my priority list. I have a fic I'm working on with the lovely EdibleSlaw and I also am working on Taro Love and Intrigue so I'm a bit packed up. But none the less I will try to balance this one in and hell if the reviews are up it may get worked on more. We'll see. I hope this one is met with the general praise Pet was met with but if not well hey I tried. I appreciate reviews and feedback let's me know I'm doing my job right. And you guys can thank my Sergeant for this one. Had I not kicked him in the face when we were kickboxing and he hadn't made a comment to me I don't think this idea would've hit. Though mind you I don't think he meant to inspire this...oh well...love you guys!
Livia was standing in the kitchen washing vegetables for the dinner she was making herself and Alex as she listened to Mitsuru talk.
"So anyways Alice and I were both thinking about going and she suggested that I ask you and Alex to go." Mitsuru smiled.
"I don't know Mi-chan." Livia said softly.
"You haven't called me that in forever!" Mitsuru cried surprised to hear her former nickname tumble so easily from her "sister's" lips.
Livia laughed, "Yeah I know. I'm feeling sort of nostalgic."
She of course had told Mitsuru about the incident in the park a year ago when she'd seen their former Mistress. Mitsuru had been concerned for her sister especially seeing how it had torn her apart to want to be with Jocelyn and yet still love Alex. For a while Mitsuru had been worried that Livia would run to Boston and right back to Jocelyn but it never happened and it finally seemed like things were settling down for her sister and her both. She and Alice had been together for two years now and were ridiculously happy. She was about to graduate from college and was thinking of going to law school following in Alex's steps. Alice was already in grad school planning to get her doctorate in literature to become a college professor.
Things were truly looking good even Livia was talking about wanting to go back to school and maybe become a social worker or something working with kids since she seemed to like being around them so much. She never could see herself returning to the gritty work as a sex crimes detective.
"I understand. I was talking to Alice about some stuff the other day."
"Have you finally told her everything?"
"Some things I can't tell her. Other things I don't want her to know about. It's not exactly a pretty life but I think she realizes I had it rough and she doesn't push it. That's what I need. Maybe when I'm ready I'll talk to her about everything but for now I'm content with putting the past behind me and trying to move forward with my life."
Livia turned setting the large knife down and walked to her sister who was sitting on a high stool near the island in the large kitchen. She hugged her close before she spoke into her now dark red hair. "Me too." She smiled as she pulled away and went back to prepping the chicken breasts she was planning to serve with the vegetables.
"Can you help me fix the salad? I want everything ready by the time Alex and Alice get here."
"Sure no problem. Anyways, back to the fetish ball. It's a masquerade! You get to wear pretty dresses and masks. I mean there's going to be performances and all but we can leave if they get too intense and there's going to be dancing and a live band and I think we'd have a really good time if we went."
"I'll talk to Alex and see. I mean it might be nice to meet some other people in the fetish scene. God knows she never let me around anyone else with a pet."
"It would be nice to make some more friends that might understand where we're coming from you mean." Mitsuru pointed out hopping off her barstool and going to the sink to wash greens and begin the process of mixing the salad.
"It might help us heal even more." Livia said wistfully.
Mitsuru smiled. "You're not doing bad Livia. You have a few setbacks here and there but nothing that is so horrible that it can't be overlooked."
"The worst was seeing her in the park."
"And Alex assured you that she understood." Mitsuru pointed out stopping to look at her sister seeing the far off expression on her face.
"Yes but that doesn't mean it didn't hurt her any less that I had to admit my own weakness to her like that."
"Livia you never got any closure. One day you thought Jocelyn was just going to come and rescue you and then when she finally showed up she just told you you were no longer hers. It was completely understandable that that was completely devastating not to mention that you would feel the urge to run to her after she just seemingly appeared like that out of nowhere."
"I still think about her you know? Hell I still dream about her." Livia squeezed her eyes shut and Mitsuru sighed softly. She set the bowl she was holding down and went over to her sister.
"It's understandable. She was your whole world for three years. She was your safety, your home, your reason to breathe and get up in the morning. She was the last thing you thought about at night and the first thing you thought about when you woke up in the morning. I know how rough that was to lose her. It was hard on me so I can only imagine how devastating it was for you." Mitsuru sighed. "Look you haven't seen her in a year and she's never made any attempts to call you or find out how you are or if you would even want to go back there. And I know you love Alex dearly."
"I do." Livia agreed.
"So the best thing to do is put Jocelyn behind you. She's the past and Alex is your present and future. That's how you've got to view things. That's how I view Alice and even if I sometimes get scared or depressed I remind myself how lucky I am to have her and everything seems to be okay."
Livia nodded, "Yeah you're right. I should focus on that and not on my past."
"You've made it a long way and everyone can see it. You're doing really well just keep trying to become your own person and the devoted lover to Alex I know you want to be."
Livia smiled and nodded, "Okay."
"Good now that that's settled let's get this food cooked so our ladies can come home to a good home cooked meal!"
Livia slid into bed that night. The night had been nice. Alice was always pleasant company and of course her sister and Alex. She couldn't ask for better company. She smiled when Alex came back into the room and sat up holding out her arms wanting to be embraced. She still wore the beautiful collar Alex had given her three years ago proudly. She hardly ever took it off and she liked the way Alex would look at her when she wore it. It made her proud to belong to the beautiful blonde.
Alex reached out brushing her hair back from her face. "Are you sleepy beautiful?"
Livia bit her lip and shook her head leaning forward but pausing when she was most of the way to Alex's lips. She always let Alex make the first move even if she urged those moves with sweet little gestures like this one. Alex smiled willingly leaning forward and pressing her lips to Livia's. Their kiss was sweet and gentle but quickly turned passionate.
Before long the two were wrapped up in each other kissing and touching through their nightclothes. Alex gently rolled Livia to her back and slid on top of her, straddling her waist easily. Livia for her part stared up at Alex adoringly and with lust clearly written in her lush brown eyes.
Alex slowly slid her hands along the hem of her tank top before sliding her fingers underneath and pulling the fabric up over her head. She heard Livia's delighted little gasp at the sight of her bare chest and smiled pleased to see her lover drinking in the sight of her milky flesh.
She slowly laid down pressing her lips to Livia's. Livia kissed back willingly though she slid her hands along Alex's slender pale back unable to help but shiver at the contact of her lover's breasts pressed against her own which were still covered in her own nightshirt. Alex sat back motioning for Livia to sit up and she gently tugged at the shirt when her olive-skinned love was sitting up beneath her. Livia shivered as she lifted her arms and allowed Alex to tug the shirt off leaving her in only her panties. Kisses rained down on her face and jaw as she lay back down and tilted her head back against the pillows giving Alex full access to her neck. She shivered when she felt a warm tongue slip in between the collar and her skin teasing her even further. She loved to have her neck kissed especially when Alex toyed with her collar like this.
She slid her hands along Alex's back as the woman made her way past her collarbones with gentle nips and kisses and down to her full breasts. She sighed with pleasure feeling Alex's hands slide over her breasts followed by her mouth until her breasts had been fully covered in kisses. She closed her eyes moaning when she felt Alex's lips wrap around her nipple and begin to lave it with attention causing the small bud to harden and peak. Unable to help herself her hips begin to snap up and down as her arousal grew flushing her cheeks a slight pink. Alex's lips trailed to her other nipple giving it the same attention then sitting back to admire her work. She slid her hands up using her fingers to caress and pinch the tender buds before she slid down pressing kisses all along Livia's flat stomach. Livia's whimpers of pleasure increased as Alex neared her apex.
Slowly Alex's hands slid from Livia's full breasts to her panties drawing them down her legs with only a few hitches. Blessedly without the soaked fabric separating them, Livia willingly parted her legs at Alex's encouragement knowing what was going to happen. She sighed her head falling back at the kiss and then tender licks that followed. She shivered and moaned her hips gyrating slightly as her pleasure increased with each flick of Alex's tongue against her sensitive flesh.
It didn't take long before Alex had her screaming with pleasure. Nor did it take her long to do the same thing to the beautiful woman she was privileged enough to call her lover. As the two lay there panting and trying to recover Livia rolled over and curled close to Alex. Alex pressed her lips to her forehead and whispered soft words of love.
Livia smiled tiredly and returned the sentiments unable to stay awake much longer. She merely curled close to Alex and allowed sleep to claim her.
