xxx stories: Frank & Elyse – Chapter 13
by Burnt Redstone
The morning sun was hidden behind the most beautiful fog Frank had ever seen. Granted his impression may have been colored by the bliss of having spent one of the best nights of his life with the most beautiful woman he’d ever had the good fortune to meet. They’d done things he’d never experienced before. He felt like a complete novice at sex and she was opening the doors on a whole new world for him. Also, he hadn’t slept so peacefully… ever. It felt completely natural to wake up spooning the gorgeous blonde. She seemed so happy this morning as well. They snuggled and kissed in bed for… Ahhh, he’d better get his mind back on what he was doing! He felt himself thickening in his cycling pants. Not a good combination.
He was on his way to the drug store to pick up some condoms. Lots of condoms. She’d recommended the extra-large size due to his girth. He’d take her word for that. He’d never used a condom before.
He parked and locked his bike then ducked into the drug store. He grabbed a basket and made his way down the aisles until he came upon a wall of brightly colored boxes. Condoms of every shape color and size. He stared in dismay at the overwhelming variety. He spent a few minutes scanning the shelves until he spotted a black box with ‘X-LARGE’ printed in bold gold letters on the front. It seemed to be a popular brand considering the number of other boxes with the same logo on them. He confirmed they were lubricated and picked up a box of 30. Then he recalled Elyse’s teasing words this morning for him to buy ‘lots and lots of condoms’. He grinned and dropped two more boxes of 30 in his basket.
She’d also told him to pick up a bottle of lube as she was concerned with how thick he was. He’d said that Stephanie seemed to be able to take him easily enough. Apparently Elyse would be tighter. That made him a little concerned too. He didn’t want to hurt her.
He found the lubes and dumped a large bottle into his basket with a small box of individual size packets for when they were not at home.
The reality of what he was contemplating stunned him momentarily. Frank stood in the aisle looking into the basket. Only a few days ago he was contemplating how barren of love his life had become and how empty it looked like it would be from now on. Now he had this incredibly beautiful woman in his life and she seemed to be equally happy to be there! It was way too soon to be using words like love but it seemed to fit what he was feeling now. He felt reality slipping around him.
He gave himself a shake and made his way up to the cashier at the front of the store. He was second in line. An older woman had a buggy full of items and she was carefully loading them onto the belt. There was only one open cashier station.
“Good morning Frank!”
He turned around and sure enough there was Beverly. “Good morning Beverly. We bump into each other a lot don’t we.”
“Not as much as you seem to be planning to ‘bump into’ someone else,” she smiled wickedly as she looked into his basket.
His face began to burn. “Very funny.”
“It gets better. May I introduce you to Janice Hawkins and Kelly Sinclair? These are your neighbors directly downhill from your place,” she said grinning widely as she gestured to the two women standing behind her in line.
Frank’s smile froze in place as he faced the two additional women. Both were looking into his basket and wore identical knowing grins. All three women were wearing workout clothes and had yoga mats tied up and hanging on their shoulders. Tight yoga pants, tight tank tops and a hoodie over top. They were likely on their way to the studio. Each was purchasing a bottle of water.
Janice was a 5′ 6″ strawberry blonde whose hair just reached her shoulders in a bob cut. She was very slim and firmly muscled. She might have been in her fifties but it was difficult to tell considering how fit she looked. Frank shook her hand with a smile and she gave him a wide smile in return.
He shook Kelly’s hand as well. The 5′ 4″ brunette had her auburn hair pulled back into a pony tail which hung down to her shoulder blades. She was a little chunkier than Janice and her boobs were struggling to free themselves from her tight spandex top. When she caught where his eyes were trying not to look her smile turned just a little bit sultry and he saw she had a slight overbite. A weakness of his, that caused a tingle down below. She was probably just a little older than he was.
“Off to the yoga studio?” he asked the group trying to deflect attention from his basket which he moved up onto the counter behind him. Three sets of eyes dropped to check out the rather obvious bulge in his tight shorts. Eyes and grins got wider.
“Yes, we like to stay flexible,” Beverly cooed and there was little doubt of her innuendo. Janice and Kelly giggled at her words.
Frank just smiled and nodded. He’d noted that all three women were wearing wedding rings so they were obviously just teasing.
“You going for a ride?” Beverly continued. More giggles.
His mind jumped the rails a little until he recalled he was wearing his cycling clothes. “Yes, just a short one though. I’m repainting my living room today. I have to get back to it.”
“Oh! I thought Elyse was working from your place.” Beverly said in surprise.
“She is. She’s in the kitchen while I’m painting,” he explained.
The cashier had finally finished with the old woman she was serving and began taking the items out of his basket. Now Frank was cursing himself for thinking it would be fun to tease Elyse by showing up with so many condoms. When Janice noticed the boxes all had ‘X-LARGE’ printed on the front she reached out to grip Kelly’s arm and her eyes shot back to the front of his bike shorts. Frank turned to face the clerk but saw the young woman was also staring at his tight shorts. He sighed and waited for her to finish the transaction. The large bottle of lube made the ladies begin to giggle nervously though they did their best to suppress it.
Face burning, Frank paid for his items and collected his shopping bag.
“It was nice meeting you. Have a good day!” he said and the three women were only able to wave.
Frank beat a hasty retreat to his bike and loaded the shopping bag into his pannier which he would remember to bring in the store with him in the future as it was also useful for hiding parts of his anatomy. He bent over to undo the locks from the bike and heard a wolf whistle. He looked back and there was Beverly with a big smile on her face. Janice and Kelly were right behind her admiring his ass too. He stood up and gave Beverly a frustrated look. She raised her hands in surrender with a grin and hustled away, the other two women casting admiring glances back at him as they followed her.
He wasted no further time in getting back home. After he put the bike away and locked the garage he headed inside and went straight down the hall to the bedroom. He didn’t think his little joke was so funny anymore. Now he was just embarrassed.
“How did it go?”
Frank jumped, not expecting Elyse to follow him to his bedroom. He turned to see her amused expression.
“I’m sorry! I didn’t mean to spook you!” she grinned. She tried peering around him as his face was beginning to pink up.
Frank sighed. He wasn’t going to get away with this. “I thought I would tease you about your ‘lots and lots’ comment so I bought… lots.” He pulled the shopping bag from the pannier and dumped its contents out onto the bed.
“Oh my! You did get lots!” she grinned widely and clapped her hands together once in delight.
“Guess who I bumped into at the store,” he sighed.
“Oh no!” Elyse gasped with her hands hiding her big grin.
“Oh yes. Beverly.”
She began to laugh. Hard.
Frank watched her enjoy his embarrassment.
“Guess who she was with?”
Elyse gasped and tried to catch her breath as she shook her head.
“The women who are my neighbors in the next two houses downhill. Janice Hawkins and Kelly Sinclair.”
Elyse looked to what the boxes were boasting, the large bottle of lube and the box of lube packets. She looked back into Frank’s eyes as her eyes flew wide and her laughter burst forth once more.
He couldn’t really stay annoyed with Elyse enjoying herself so much. He pouted but he couldn’t keep the smile from his lips. She pulled him into a hug and he squeezed her in return.
“So much for first impressions,” he grumbled.
“Oh I think you made a fabulous first impression for these women, especially wearing your tight bike clothes!” she giggled and gripped his ass in her hands.
“Hey! We have work to do before we get play time!” he reminded her.
“Oh pooh! I want play time now!” she cooed as she pressed herself against his chest.
“But your office would probably prefer you to have work time during the hours they are paying you for,” he sighed as his inner voice told him to shut the fuck up.
“Right. That. Having a job. Getting paid and having money to make mortgage payments and buy food,” she pouted and batted her long lashes as him.
“God, don’t do that!” he gasped.
She immediately looked contrite. “I’m sorry, did that trigger your nerves?” she asked with concern.
“No! You just looked so adorable and sad I felt my heart breaking!” he exclaimed.
Her eyes lit up with joy and she grabbed him to kiss him hard.
His head was spinning wildly when she pulled back but there was a difference to his loss of equilibrium now. Before there was a sick sense of desperation, despair, and depression behind it. Now all he could see was a beautiful and bright future ahead and his heart was filled with wonder and happiness.
“Oh my god Elyse, what you do to me!” he said with joy showing in his own eyes.
She looked like she wanted to jump his bones right then but she stepped back with a smile on her lips. “We are having a little play time at lunch!” she said as she pointed at him and raised an eyebrow to let him know she was serious. He nodded and grinned at her. She turned and skipped back to the kitchen.
Frank quickly rinsed off in the shower and pulled on a tight white t-shirt he could replace if he got paint on it and some old denim cut off shorts. He went out to the living room and pulled the tape off the top edge of the walls as he was done with the ceilings. He added tape to protect the crown moulding now and began painting the walls. He had this room and the hallway to finish. Then he’d redo the tape to protect the walls when he painted the baseboards and crown moulding.
He had a system worked out so he was able to power through the painting of the room and the hallway. When he finished he stood back and admired the job. He felt eyes on him and turned to see Elyse watching him from the kitchen door.
“Time for lunch. Play time first?” she said eagerly.
The doorbell rang and the sudden look of disappointment on Elyse’s face surprised a chuckle out of him.
“Let me see if I can’t shoo them away,” he replied as he made his way to the front door.
When he opened it he saw five ladies standing on the path leading to his door. The woman who’d pressed the doorbell was a stranger as was the one standing at her left elbow. But behind them was Janice, Kelly, and at the back looking both nervous and overjoyed was Beverly.
Frank had an epiphany. These were likely the ‘neighborhood wives’ Beverly’s husband Rick had been talking about. Beverly had found a way to get back into their good graces. By introducing them to the new arrivals. He’d play along for now as he was interested in getting to know the neighbors too. Funny how none of the men were making the same effort. Maybe they were at work and he’d see them later.
“Hello.” He gestured behind himself for Elyse to join him at the door.
“Good day! I’m Holly Marshall and this is Heather Cumberland. We live in the houses across the street.” She gestured to the houses on either side of Elyse’s who had reached his side by this point. Holly’s eyes narrowed ever so slightly in reaction to the beauty standing next him.
“Hi, Frank Dunn and this is Elyse… Williams.” He recalled what Elyse said at the failed dinner party.
They shook hands and Janice and Kelly stepped forward to shake Elyse’s hand and make introductions.
“Beverly tells us you are painting and I know it’s short notice but we thought you might like to escape the paint fumes and come over to lunch at my place. Just some sandwiches and drinks. A ‘get to know you’ lunch,” Holly said with a smile.
“That’s very nice of you,” he said and glanced at Elyse as he knew she had other things in mind for their time.
“That would be lovely,” she agreed.
“I, uh, should probably get changed,” Frank said looking down at himself.
“If you are going to be doing more painting later don’t bother changing. It’s just a casual lunch.” Holly said with a smile and her eyes did a quick appreciative pass over his body.
“Let’s go!” Elyse said before Frank could protest further. The women all smiled at Elyse.
He glanced at her then slipped his runners on his feet as Elyse pulled her shoes on. They stepped outside and Frank locked up then followed the group to Holly’s place. He saw Beverly was smiling, happy to be included.
Holly’s home was lovely and probably twice the square footage of his. Tastefully furnished, he saw some serious money had been spent here. Based on some of the artwork, very serious money.
She led them to the large solarium at the back of the house behind the kitchen where there were a number of comfortable chairs arranged around low tables. A perfect spot for conversations. Holly gestured for them to take a seat while she and Heather went back to the kitchen to get the food and drinks.
Frank noticed there were no two seaters and the chairs were positioned to be equally distant from each other. He looked at Elyse but she seemed to be comfortable with finding a seat. He took the chair next to hers. The others took their chairs but they left the two chairs to Frank’s left open for their hosts.
Holly returned with a large tray of small delicious looking wraps. She pointed out the ones with chicken, the ones with tuna, and the veggie wraps.
Heather set a tray down with a large jug of sangria, seven glasses, and paper plates. She handed the plates to Holly then poured for everyone, handing out the glasses.
Frank put a couple of the wraps on his plate and waited for the others to get theirs. Holly was playing the gracious host role and she seemed to have had a lot of practice.
She was 5′ 8″ and had generous curves that were likely gifted to her surgically. She had a symmetry that seemed just a little too precise to be natural, breasts a little too high and perfectly round to be natural, and an ass… well, it couldn’t be natural either. Her sun yellow blond hair cascaded down to midback. She was probably a few years older than him.
Her friend Heather was far too slim. Maybe she starved herself. Her modest implants were made all the more obvious by the lack of fat anywhere else. Her raven black hair was currently braided into a thick bundle hanging down to almost her ass.
Holly raised her glass once everyone was seated again. “Here’s to welcoming our new arrivals to the neighborhood.”
Everyone joined in the toast and they sipped at the sangria. Frank thought it was very good if a little strong. He’d have to be careful with his consumption of this beverage. It was easy to forget its bite.
He took a bite of a chicken wrap and it was really good! “Delicious!” he said with a nod to Holly.
“There’s a lovely catering place in town. We use them when Daryl entertains here at the house. My husband’s company in Silicon Valley designs military satellites so he spends most of his time flying between San Francisco and Washington,” she said in an offhand manner but there was no mistaking the boast. Frank nodded with a suitably impressed look earning him a satisfied smile from Holly.
“Heather’s husband is a movie producer in LA. You may spot him in the area on weekends. Janice’s husband is the financial controller of a major pharmaceuticals manufacturer in San Jose and commutes. Kelly’s husband is an investment banker right here in Carmel.”
“Though you’ll only ever see him on the golf course,” Kelly pouted.
It was obvious that aside from Beverly whose husband seemed to be retired and comfortable staying home, none of the husbands in this group spent much time with their spouses. Frank felt a little worried about that as they were currently looking at him like cats watching a mouse.
“Beverly tells us you’re retired! You seem so young to be able to retire! How did you manage that? What did you do before?” Holly exclaimed leaning towards him with a bright smile on her face.
Frank was a little unnerved by her but nodded. “Yes, I’m retired now. I worked at a company I set up over twenty years ago. We specialized in making deals happen between larger companies. We were facilitators, identifying obstacles and finding ways to work around them or eliminate them. Sometimes that meant finding and bringing the right people together. Sometimes it meant buying or backing companies to help them grow quickly and efficiently to be able to partner with larger companies. I brought in partners about eight years in and we grew very rapidly ourselves. I ended up handling most of the acquisitions which meant lots of traveling, sometimes nice places but most often not so nice places. Some aspects of the work were unpleasant and I was forced into dangerous situations more than once. Luckily none of them proved fatal. I’m glad it’s over. When I retired I sold my majority shares to the other partners.”
Frank noticed that all eyes were on him including Elyse’s. He realized this was the first time she’d heard what he’d done as well. He smiled at her and she returned it with a twinkle in her eye.
“Now I’m just going to try my hand at writing. Elyse is an editor for a publishing house in LA so I’ve asked her to let me know if I have anything worth publishing.” Frank grinned at her.
“Stories of your travels to these dark and dangerous places?” Heather asked, her eyes just a little intense.
“I- I don’t think anyone would be interested in reading about that and I’m not sure I’d want to revisit those memories myself. I’m certainly never going back to those places,” Frank said quietly as he struggled not to let his mind dredge up the past. He forced a smile on his face. “No, I’m alive, safe, and healthy so I’m going to enjoy my retirement!”
Frank took another drink of his Sangria and popped the rest of the wrap he was eating into his mouth. It really was very good. “I’d love to get the recipe for these wraps!” he said looking closely at the wrap on his plate. They added something to the chicken he just couldn’t put his finger on.
“Oh, do you cook?” Holly asked.
“Frank is an excellent chef! He made an exquisite chicken and chorizo paella for us last night! It was so good! Even his grilled cheese sandwiches are delicious!” Elyse gushed and Frank smiled and tipped his head.
“I do like to cook. I find it very relaxing,” he admitted.
“I look forward to our next potluck dinner party! It’s become an annual tradition to throw a party for the neighborhood. Everyone brings their specialty. Daryl fires up the barbeque and broils a bunch of steaks. Heather mixes up gallons of her amazing sangria, everyone gets involved and there is a lot of food! You could make your paella?” Holly asked with a small smile on her lips.
“I’ve never cooked for more than two people.” Frank said. “Always smaller dishes for intimate dinners.” When he heard his words a blush crept up his cheeks. He glanced at Elyse but she was innocently sipping her sangria. “I- I’ll have to see what I can make for a bigger group.”
“I’m sure anything you make will be lovely,” Holly smiled.
“Are you a fan of sports? Football? Baseball?” Heather glanced over at Kelly with a smirk. “Golf?”
Frank was wondering why he was the only one being asked questions. Elyse seemed content to sit quietly but he felt like he was running a gauntlet.
“No, I’ve never really had time to dedicate to sports. I was always working and when I wasn’t I was trying to escape from the bustle by hiking in whatever woods were nearby or cycling,” he answered.
“Yes, Janice mentioned they bumped into you at the drugstore this morning while you were out cycling. Is riding a hobby of yours?” Holly asked with a coy smile.
“Yes, I really enjoy it. It gets the heart pumping and builds endurance,” he said enthusiastically.
Janice and Kelly began giggling while Holly and Heather wore identical looks of delighted amusement.
Frank looked at them in confusion. “Did I miss something?”
“I’m sorry, we just heard what you were shopping for at the drug store and we got a little carried away in our imaginations. It was rude of us and we apologize.” Heads nodded but they were still looking at him like he was a delectable chocolate bonbon. “We obviously have a little too much time on our hands and seeing a new, and handsome, face in the neighborhood has lightened our spirits. I hope you can forgive us,” the ringleader said with a pouty smile.
Frank’s face flushed red as his mind connected the dots between the condoms and ‘riding’ double entendre. “I see I’m going to have to choose my words very carefully around you ladies.”
“Where would the fun be in that?” Holly grinned.
“I hate to disappoint but I’m just not that exciting.” Frank admitted and the women looked to Elyse. Their smiles grew and Frank looked quickly to Elyse but she was just looking back at him with an innocent smile. “Et tu, Brutus?”
Elyse laughed and patted his arm. “I said nothing Frank but I can’t agree with your statement.”
Frank wasn’t sure how to react to that. He was aghast that she was even hinting at their personal business but he was also secretly delighted at her opinion of him. His conflict must have come through his expression as the ladies chuckled.
“Frank you are already proving to be a delightful addition to our neighborhood!” Heather said and the rest nodded.
“Aside from teasing the neighbors what do people do for fun around here?” Frank asked.
“Yoga, going to the gym, visiting spas, book clubs, walking clubs, movie nights and we do volunteer work on several charities.” Holly explained.
“Sounds like a busy schedule,” Frank suggested.
“Actually it’s not busy at all.” Heather lamented. “We get so bored!”
“Have you ever done any cycling or hiking? Exercising while getting a change of scenery does wonders for the soul.”
It looked like they were actually contemplating the idea though a few of them got mischievous smiles on their faces as they let their imaginations wander.
Frank glanced at Elyse. “Lunch was lovely but I think we’d better get back to it. Elyse is working and I have to finish up that painting.”
Elyse nodded. “Lunch was delicious! Thank you so much!”
“I look forward to our next get together. Once I get the house all fixed up and have some actual furniture I’ll invite everyone over for dinner,” Frank offered and received wide smiles for that.
Holly walked them out to the front door. She gave Elyse a double cheek kiss and Frank received the same with the addition of having her breasts firmly pressed against his chest. Flustered, Frank said his goodbyes and caught her satisfied smile as the door closed.
They walked back to his place in silence. Once they were inside Elyse started to laugh and Frank looked at her in surprise.
“Oh Frank! You are in so much trouble!” she giggled.
“What? What did I do?” he asked.
“It’s not what you did, it’s who you are! A virile male lamb amongst the man-hungry she-wolves of Carmel!” she said theatrically with wide eyes.
“Oh come on! I have no intention of ‘entertaining’ a bunch of bored housewives!”
She wrapped her arms around him and pulled him close. “Good! Because I don’t intend on sharing you.”
He smiled happily. “Good, because I’m a one woman man.”
She kissed him and he felt his body floating away. When she pulled back he wobbled a little on his feet.
They heard a warbling coming from the kitchen. “Damn, that’s my two o’clock conference call.” She pulled away and he gave her butt a fond little spank. She looked over her shoulder at him with lust in her eyes then she was out of sight.
Frank dragged his mind back to his painting task and powered through the rest of the job.
Hours later Frank was dressing after taking a quick shower. He’d finished the painting, removed the tape and drop cloths, and cleaned his tools. Then he’d taken a shower to get the paint off of him. He pulled on a pair of dark grey slacks, a dark blue dress shirt, socks and he felt presentable once more.
He walked out into the kitchen to see Elyse busy typing away on her laptop. She looked at him and smiled widely.
“Mmm! You look delicious! Are we going someplace?” she asked.
“Yes, I thought I’d take you to a nice restaurant in town for dinner. I made a reservation earlier. Then I thought we could take a little walk, window shop, get familiar with the town. Outside of cycling through town I haven’t really spent much time looking at the place. We could use that time to talk, get to know each other.”
She smiled at him and nodded. “I’ll need to get changed. When is our reservation?”
“In an hour.”
Elyse looked at the clock and nodded as it was 5:45PM. She saved her work, disconnected from her office, and shut down her laptop. She stood up and followed him to the front door. She complimented him on how impressed she was with how professional his painting job was. She promised to be back in thirty minutes.
Frank kissed her amazing lips then drank in her beautiful smile as she turned and left. He was still amazed this beauty wanted to spend time with him.
He went back inside to tidy up.
