In and out. In and out. Jules was trying to focus entirely on her breathing, which was difficult to do when Sean was touching her. They'd been halfway through the movie when Sean had started playing with her hair.
It had begun with him simply twirling a lock of her hair between his fingers. She figured that he was fidgety and her hair was the nearest thing for him to occupy his hands with. Despite the innocence of the touch, it had sent her nerves into overdrive.
Twirling the strand of hair had quickly moved into him stroking her hair, as he was doing now. He'd start at the roots and run his hands gently but firmly through her curly locks. Occasionally, he would pause to massage her scalp. It was hypnotic.
Jules had never felt like this before. She was torn between being completely relaxed and itching to have his hands running down her whole body the same way they were her hair.
She wanted him to touch her more. She wanted to touch him. She still had her head in his lap. She fought the urge to turn her head, unzip his pants and take him in her mouth.
Still, it was obvious that Jules was the only one affected by his ministrations. While she was fighting the urge to squirm and press herself closer to him, Sean appeared to be completely engrossed in the movie. He hadn't looked at her once. She doubted he even realized what he was doing or who he was doing it to.
He stopped to massage her scalp again, and Jules moaned as he rubbed a small circle on her temple.
Sean's muscles clenched at the sound of Julia's moan. Using everything in him, he kept his eyes trained on the television. If he looked at her, saw her face, he'd definitely give in to his impulses and touch more of her than just her hair.
His whole body was tense with desire, and he was half hard. It was amazing that Jules hadn't noticed yet. That was part of the reason he was moving so slowly. She was still so young and still had so much innocence.
He needed her to be as eager as he was. He wanted her panting in need. But first, he needed to slowly get her used to the idea of them together. He wanted her to get used to his touch and to slowly add a physical side to their relationship.
But it was nearly impossible not to push her.
He gave in to his desire and moved his hand down her hair and onto her side. Up and down he trailed his palm, moving over her thin t-shirt. He wished he could remove her shirt and feel the smooth skin of her waist. With each stroke of his hand he moved further, until he was running his hand from the waistband of her pants up to her shoulder.
He could feel her, the heat of her body through the material, the contrast of her soft curves and the hardness of her ribs. He could even feel the shallow in and out of her breathing and the tensing of her muscles.
Agonizingly slowly, Sean trailed his hand up and over her ribcage until his hand was brushing against the side of her breast.
Jules let out a low groan of appreciation. Almost as soon as the sound was out of her mouth, she bolted upright and off of the sofa.
"I...ah...restroom. I need to use the restroom." Jules bolted for the bathroom, leaving a grinning Sean sitting on the sofa.
