A Happy Ending
Holden moved his hand down to adjust his grip. “How’s that? Is that okay?”
“That’s good,” said Gina. She felt a little tense. She didn’t know this guy so well, and it was her first time with him. Some guys liked to rush right in, and she hoped he wasn’t one of them. “A little to the left, okay?”
Holden adjusted his hips. Applied slight pressure. “Like that?”
“Oh yes, much better,” said Gina. This was going better than she expected. He was patient and willing to let her guide him in. “A little thrust now, just a little one.”
Holden pushed forward a tiny bit. Gentle was the watchword in these initial stages, else there wouldn’t be more occasions.
“Oh yeah, that’s so good, sweetie.”
“I’m goin’ slow, but you tell me if you want more.”
“Yeah, give it to me.” said Gina, feeling confident. “Yes,” she sighed. “More, more!” She watched him as he worked, beads of sweat forming on his forehead from the effort. She looked into his eyes. She could tell he was close. “That’s it sweetie, just let it go.”
“Yeah, baby. Yes.”
Gina slumped, breathing hard. An automated feminine voice announced, “Space Docking maneuver complete. Welcome to the CERVIX, Camden Enterprises Refueling and Variable Inter-planetary eXtra-lunar station. Here to serve your needs and take away the pressure.”
“Thanks for the happy ending, Camden,” said Holden, shutting down the ship’s thrusters.
Gina smiled at the view of Holden on her screen. “My pleasure Foxtrot-Echo-Lima-8. I see it’s your first time in while.”
“Yeah, been running raw materials from the Belt to Mars for three years now.”
“Uh huh, I could tell you’re experienced. Well, we’re happy to see you come.
“Thank you ma’am. It was good for me too. This is Foxtrot-Echo-Lima-8, out.”
