It was hot. Sticky. Miserable. How did people live in this heat? Maude walked back into the house and headed for the shower. She peeled her clothes off and stepped into the cool water. Maude swore steam rose off of her skin. She must have stood under the water for fifteen minutes, gradually turning the hot water off until the shower ran cold.
Maude stepped out of the shower and instead of toweling off, she simply dripped to the bedroom and laid down across the bed. The window was open and a slight breeze drifted cross the bed. She fell asleep.
Rob had watched as Maude walked into her house. He heard the shower run as he moved the garden hose. She’d moved here from Canada and wasn’t use to the heat. The desert could be brutal. Maude was brunette and pale as only a Northerner could be, and beautiful. He’d lived here all of his life. His skin was mahogany colored from the sun. After a moment, he continued his garden work.
After he finished his work, he showered and started cooking dinner. When it was finished, he went next door and knocked.
A few moments later, a sleepy Maude opened the door wrapped in a light sarong.
“Hi, I thought I’d be a good neighbor and invite you over to dinner,” Rob said.
“Oh! Hi Rob. I fell asleep after work Let me… um… Let me get dressed and I’ll be right over. Should I bring anything?” she asked.
“No, I have everything. See you in say ten minutes?” Rob said.
“Sure!” said Maude as she closed the door.
Rob headed back to his house with a smile on his face.
Maude closed the door and ran for her bedroom. She grabbed her lightest sundress and a pair of undies. The dress had a built in bra, so she didn’t worry about that. Maude slipped on her sandals and ran a brush through her hair. It had dried funny, so she wet it to make it behave. A little lipstick and a touch of perfume and she was ready.
She walked over to Rob’s house and knocked on the door. Rob opened it and ushered her into his house. It was cool and beautiful.
“How on earth do you keep it so cool?” Maude asked.
“It’s adobe. Thick walls. If you close it up as the sun plays over it, it stays cool. In the evening when the breeze comes up, you open it up and it really cools off,” said Rob.
“Makes sense. My house might as well be a tin box as hot as it gets,” she said.
“How long have you been here?” he asked.
“Five months. I think I’m going to melt by the end of the summer,” she said.
“I’ll come over and see what we can do to make you more comfortable,” Rob said. “Dinner is this way.” Rob led Maude back to a dining room resplendent in Hacienda style. Lots of tile, heavy wood and earth tones. On the table was a heavenly smelling feast.
“Rob, this is wonderful,” said Maude.
“I like to cook. My mamacita felt that all of her children should know how to cook. I’ve made you a number of local foods. Tacos, tortillas, frijoles, guacamole, tamales and ensalada,” he said pointing to various dishes.
“It smells heavenly,” said Maude.
“Well, sit and start filling your plate. What would you like to drink?” he asked.
“Um… I don’t know,” she said.
“I’ll bring you some limonade. Limes, water and a hint of sugar,” he said and headed to the kitchen. He came back in a moment with a pitcher and two glasses full of ice. He poured and then sat down to eat.
Maude had taken a little of everything. She had just bit into a taco when Rob sat down.
“Thish ish goohd,” she tried to say around the bite.
Rob smiled. They chatted while they ate. When they’d eaten most of what he’d put on the table, he rose and brought back dessert. Sopapillas drizzled with honey and raspberry syrup.
“Rob, this… this is oh my gods delicious,” Maude said after her first sticky bite.
“I’m glad you like it,” he said. “What did you think of the rest of the meal?”
“It was saltier and spicier than I expected, but not too hot. It was a pleasant heat. Oh, and I really enjoyed the bite of lime to lots of the dishes,” Maude said.
“When you live in the desert, you need salt. It helps to avoid dehydration. Same with the hot and sharp tasting foods. Desert cooking reflects the needs of those who live in the desert. If you eat local foods, you will feel better,” Rob said.
“That makes sense. I’ve had a wonderful evening. Thank you for dinner,” Maude said.
“You’re welcome. Shall we walk over to your house and see what we can do to make it cooler?” Rob asked.
“Oh. Okay. I didn’t expect you to come over tonight, but sure,” Maude said.
They walked over to Maude’s little house. It was a 1950’s bungalow. Maude unlocked the door and the wave of heat hit them as she opened the door.
“Oh Rob, I’m so sorry. It gets so hot in here,” she apologized.
“Not a problem. Let’s open these windows,” he said moving around the room and opening windows. The cool night air poured in. They walked through the whole house and ended up in the bedroom. Maude opened the last of the windows and they stood there as the house began to cool down.
“You can work your house the same way I do. Open the windows on the shady side and move with the sun. Open up everything in the evening,” he said.
“I’ll have to try that,” Maude said. As she turned, she discovered that Rob had moved up right behind her. “Oh sorry,” she apologized.
“What for?” Rob asked.
“Well, I bumped into you,” she said just a tad embarrassed.
“There’s no need for an apology. You are a very attractive woman and I would like to take you in my arms and kiss you,” he said in a soft voice.
“I… um… Oh,” she said. She had found him attractive the first time they’d met, but never presumed that anything would ever come of it.
“Would you be offended?” he asked.
“No, I…” was as far as she got before Rob walked up, wrapped his arms around her and kissed her. He smelled of warm nutmeg and traces of scents from dinner. It was intoxicating. Slowly she brought her own arms around Rob and returned the kiss.
They stood there kissing for minutes that seemed more like hours. Rob ran his hands down Maude’s back, caressing her through her dress. His cock pushed against his zipper and her hip as they stood there.
Maude flinched a little when she realized he was erect. Rob broke off the kiss.
“Does my body’s reaction upset you?” he asked.
“No, I just… I barely know you and…” she stuttered.
“Maude, I find you attractive. My physical reaction to your beauty is an extension of that,” he said. “Your own nipples are erect, telling me that you are not unaffected.”
Maude looked down. He was right. They were standing up firm against the fabric of her dress. Before she could say another word, he wrapped her in his arms and kissed her again. Rob’s hands roamed across her body. Maude responded with urgent kisses and her hands wandered across his body. Her hands went up under his shirt and touched his back.
Rob lifted Maude up and carried her to the bed. They laid down on the bed and continued kissing and touching. Rob moved his hand up her thigh and ran his fingers across her ass and the little silk panties.
“Um, oh…,” Maude started to say.
“Do you want me to stop?” Rob asked.
“I shouldn’t be doing this,” she said.
“Why? Don’t you want to touch me? Enjoy where our desires may lead?” he asked.
“I barely know you, I… oh god,” she moaned as he ran his fingertips up her side and across her nipples. Goosebumps cascaded over her skin and were brushed by the breeze through the window.
“Your body is heating up and there is only one way to cool it,” Rob said softly. He kissed down her neck and then across the material of the dress to her nipple. He kissed and nipped one and then the other. “Do you really want me to stop? To go home?” he asked.
“I should, but no! I feel like I’m on fire,” she said.
“Undress for me,” Rob said.
Maude stood up and pulled off her sundress and then slid her panties down. They were soaked. As she undressed, Rob had gotten rid of his clothing. She looked over and her eyes fed on the dark tanned muscles of his chest. She could tell he worked without a shirt. His legs were not as dark as his upper body, but they were still tanned. His cock stood out pale against his belly. She realized she ached to touch him.
Rob looked at Maude. She was a pale curvy woman. Soft in all the right places. He walked around the bed to wrap her in his arms. Her skin was cool to his touch, and when he took her in his arms, his cock bounced between them.
“I have watched you and thought how beautiful you were for months. I didn’t know how lovely you would be dressed in just your skin,” he said.
“You are rather a surprise as well. Taned and yet your skin is so soft,” she said as her hand trailed down his back and across his ass.
Rob moved them back to the bed where they explored each other’s bodies. He kissed her nipples and sucked them to hard peaks. Her hands flowed down his body, stroking and touching. Rob gasped as her fingertips traced across his cock. His control was good, but just that touch brought drops of pre-cum racing up.
He moved his fingers between her legs and found her wet. Rob brought his damp fingers to his mouth and tasted her. Sweet, musky and so heated up. Kissing her lips, he plunged his fingers into her pussy. Maude gasped. Rob touched and played with her pussy until she was arching in pleasure just short of orgasm.
“Rrrob,” she gasped. “Please,” she said as she grasped his cock in her hand. Stroking lightly, she moved him towards her. Rob moved between her legs and after a stroke or two more of his fingers, he slid into her pussy. It was tight and hot. He lifted her ass off of the bed and stroked in and out of her.
Maude rolled her head back in delight. It had been a long time since the last time she’d had sex. She wrapped her legs around his hips and enjoyed the sensations of him sliding in and out of her pussy.
“Oh,” she moaned. She was surprised that she felt her orgasm building after such brief contact.
Rob moved slightly to grab her hand ahd pull her up until Maude was sitting across his lap. This drove him deeper into her pussy and increased the fit of his cock inside her. He rocked back on his heels and wrapped his arms around her.
“Rob, oh… oh… I’m… Maude gasped. Her previous boyfriend had been a missionary type guy done in about 45 seconds. This deeper position just rocked her.
Rob smiled as he cradled Maude to him. He put a hand on her lower back and thrust rapidly. His own orgasm wasn’t far off. Maude arched backwards as his cock rubbed her cervix and brought her to orgasm hard and fast. He held her as her body rocked and spasmed with pleasure.
“Uhhhhh,” she groaned as her head buried itself in his shoulder. The spasming of her pussy pushed Rob over the edge and he bucked hard, driving deep as his orgasm boiled up through his senses. He grabbed her ass hard as he held on through the pleasure.
“Uhhhhuh,” he groaned.
As they laid there on the bed and recovered, Rob held Maude gently in his arms. She sighed with pleasure. Then she giggled.
“What’s so funny?” he asked.
“I just thought how a little heat can make for a very pleasant evening,” she said.
Rob laughed softly.
