Hellcats: Saving Savannah Part 5
by MTL ([email protected])
After the exchange of those 'three little words' neither Marti nor Savannah knew what to say. Ultimately it felt like there was nothing else more to say. Like anything else would have been trivial. So eventually Savannah just smiled softly and rested her head down on Marti's chest, the blonde happily holding her lover against her body as they snuggled.
Generally Marti was the type of girl to stay up late and squeeze every second out of her life she could, but there were exceptions to every rule and apparently this was one of them because Marti didn't want to move from this spot. Ever. In fact if the world ended right now she would probably be content, because really, what could possibly top this?
The girl she loved more than she could have ever imagined loving anyone or anything had just told Marti that she loved her and wanted to be with her. Was willing to be with her no matter what the consequences of it might be. And right now for the first time they were truly together. They were finally a real couple. They were girlfriends.
As a result Marti couldn't imagine ever being this blissfully happy again. Like no matter how amazing future moments might be they couldn't compare to this. But... Marti wanted to try. Despite a moment of insanity she wanted the world to keep spinning so she could see if she could feel this way again, and honestly she'd settle for pretty close which she was sure she would be whenever Savannah was in her arms. Or kissing her. Or maybe even just in the same room as her.
Besides, if the world ended now Marti would be robbed of the chance of spending a lifetime with Savannah, which at that moment Marti wanted more than anything. Not that she would freak Savannah out by saying anything of course, but in that moment Marti found herself weighing the pros and cons of adoption vs artificial insemination and desperately trying to remember what Savannah had told her was her favourite flower so Marti could decide how many there should be for their wedding. Which again Marti knew was bordering on psychotic, but she was just so happy she couldn't help it.
While Marti was perfectly happy to remain where she was for the rest of the evening so she could plan out her life with the girl in her arms Savannah was trying to gather up the physical and more importantly mental strength to get up and to come out.
Part of her didn't want too, at least not right away, not when she could be spending the entire night, or at least the next couple of hours, lying in Marti's arms. But, thanks to Dan, Savannah needed to act fast.
So once she had regained enough strength Savannah murmured, "Marti, I'm... I'm hungry. Can, can we get something to eat?"
"Sure, no problem." Marti said as she let go of Savannah, making it easier for the other cheerleader to get up, "Do you wanna go out and celebrate?"
"No, I'd, I'd like to just eat in, ok?" Savannah asked as she quickly picked up a towel and wrapped it around herself.
"Ok." Marti murmured, her eyes lingering on Savannah's body.
"Just going to freshen up." Savannah said unnecessarily, "Back in a sec."
With that Savannah quickly slipped out and headed for the showers.
Considering the amount of girls living under one roof it seemed criminal to have one shower per floor, but it was just one of the little quirks Savannah had learned to deal with in college. Of course the worst part of it was that it was commonplace for the other girls in her squad to walk around wearing nothing but a towel at all hours of the night and day given what sweaty, active lives they lead. Scantily clad girls had always made Savannah nervous for reasons she'd never wanted to analyse and it had always been difficult pretending it didn't bother her.
On the bright side no one batted an eye at Savannah taking a shower right now, and the shower itself wasn't occupied, and no one really saw her, particularly the latter of which being a relief as it meant no one saw her with Marti's cum covering her face. And sure, it had dried to the point no one would have noticed anyway, but it was the principle of the thing.
Once she'd showered and returned to her room she found Marti waiting for her in a towel, the blonde gently smiling before wordlessly slipping away to freshen up herself, leaving Savannah to stare at herself in the mirror. Moving closer to it Savannah imagined she was looking into the eyes of her fellow Hellcats. Into the scary and judgemental eyes of Alice. Of Lewis. Of... her family. Her sister Charlotte, her Dad... her Mom. She could all see them staring at her. Judging her. Hating her. But still, she owed them the truth.
"I'm... I'm..." Savannah repeated over and over for what felt like hours, only finally able to say something else when she looked down at her feet and mumbled, "I'm gay."
Just then the door opened, Savannah grateful she was still in a towel because even if it was only Marti someone could have been behind her or something. Although such a thought quickly became trivial as Marti was now looking at her with concern.
"What's wrong?" Marti asked after she had closed the door.
"N, nothing." Savannah mumbled unconvincingly.
"Savannah, you're crying." Marti pointed out as she quickly moved to her girlfriend's side.
Looking up into the mirror Savannah saw that Marti was right, which was weird because she honestly hadn't noticed given how hard she had been trying to concentrate on coming out to her own reflection.
"I was just..." Savannah began to make excuses but Marti just looked at her in this way which prevented the brunette from lying, "I was practising."
"Practising what?" Marti asked softly as she moved a little closer.
"Coming out." Savannah whispered, unable to look Marti in the eye.
Smiling softly Marti cupped Savannah's face, "There's no rush?"
There was but Savannah didn't want to tell Marti about it, so she told her a white lie followed by a couple of half-truths, "I know, but... I just really want to get this over with. I, I just... I want to do it before I loss my nerve, ok?"
"Ok." Marti said softly, gently pulling Savannah into her arms, "I just want to be with you. I don't care how or when or even if anyone finds out, so just tell me how you want to play this and we'll do it. I'll do whatever you want me to do."
Savannah smiled softly, then told Marti the plan she had been working on since pretty much after Dan called her and that she had finalised in her shower, "I, I was thinking we could tell the squad over dinner. That, that kind of gets most of it out the way in one go, then tell your Mom, then... mine, my family."
Marti bit her lip. Savannah was clearly struggling just to tell her how she wanted to come out, so who knows what she would be like when it actually came down to it. However she had seen Savannah perform well when she needed to under stressful situations, and as much as she didn't want to push Savannah into anything she wasn't ready for Marti also wanted to be able to scream from the rooftops that she was in love with and dating Savannah Monroe.
So after a brief pause Marti said, "If that's what you want... just be sure it is. And if it's too much, or you want to chicken out, or whatever, just say Goth, ok?"
"Goth?" Savannah questioned with a frown.
"Yeah, Goth." Marti grinned softly, "It's what you called me during our first meeting, remember? Shortly after I called you a football groupie, then, erm, other not so nice things were said. Point is, we could have a safe word which we can use if one of us changes their minds, or just doesn't think they can go through with it right now or whatever."
"Oh, ok." Savannah said softly, knowing she really didn't have the choice but it was nice for Marti to think of that.
"Ok." Marti confirmed unnecessarily, an awkward pause falling between them before Marti asked, "So... do you want some help practising?"
Savannah just kind of looked confused in response so Marti gently pushed Savannah around so she was facing the mirror again, got behind the other girl and wrapped her arms around her.
Then Marti murmured softly but firmly, "Repeat after me... I'm gay."
Savannah was a little distracted by the feeling of Marti's body pressed against her, particularly Marti's breasts pressed into her back, but she soldiered on and after only a brief pause stammered, "I'm... I'm gay."
"Good." Marti praised softly, trying not to sound patronising. She definitely wasn't trying to be, but again Savannah wasn't exactly brimming with confidence, and... well, "Now, try not looking down."
Biting her lip and blushing slightly Savannah looked back up at her reflection and this time said slightly more confidently, "I'm gay."
"Excellent. Great job Savannah." Marti praised, this time sounding a lot more like she meant it, "Again."
"I'm gay." Savannah said, this time without hesitation, and kind of liking the way it rolled off her tongue.
"Great, and again." Marti encouraged.
"I'm gay." Savannah repeated a few times with appropriate encouragements from Marti before beginning to ad lib a little, "I'm a lesbian. I Savannah Monroe am a... am a raging homosexual who is in love with another girl. I'm... I'm dating another girl. I'm, I'm in a lesbian relationship, and I'm happy... even if it makes me a hell-bound sexual deviant."
"Ok, good but... about the last part..." Marti quickly interrupted, choosing her next words carefully, "I don't care what voice inside your head says otherwise, you're not a hell-bound sexual deviant, ok? You're beautiful, kind, and amazing. And normal. No, you're extraordinary, but... there's nothing wrong with you, ok? Nothing!"
Savannah smiled at the kind words. She wasn't sure she believed them, but she wanted too. Either way she would probably be receiving some not so kind words so she needed to be strong.
"Ok." Savannah murmured, wiping away tears which began falling during her little confession due to relief, happiness and terror, "I, I think that's enough. Otherwise I'm going to freak out or something, so can we just get this over with?"
"If that's what you want." Marti found herself murmuring again, placing a gentle kiss on Savannah's neck before murmuring suggestively, "Or, we could just stay here and-"
"No!" Savannah said firmly, moving away, "We, we can't. I mean... I just need to get this over with, ok?"
"Ok." Marti said, kicking herself for upsetting Savannah, "I didn't mean-"
"It's fine." Savannah insisted, "I know you're just worried about me, but you don't have to be."
"Well, that and I really, really want to have my way with you." Marti said playfully before quickly adding, "But for the record, I'd be happy just snuggling."
Savannah smiled softly, "Anything to avoid my mother."
Marti smiled back, however both girls exchanged a look, both knowing it was no laughing matter. Then without thinking Savannah turned around, dropped her towel and started rummaging around for clothes. When she grabbed a fresh pair of underwear she turned back to find Marti kind of just staring at her which made her blush.
"What?" Marti shrugged innocently, "Girlfriend privileges."
"What?" Savannah questioned in confusion.
"Girlfriend privileges." Marti repeated before explaining, "See, before we were dating staring at you was just kind of weird and a little creepy. But now we're not strangers or friends, we're girlfriends, so it's ok."
"Oh." Savannah murmured, mulling Marti's words over in her head and deciding they sounded about right before shyly asking, "Does it work both ways?"
Marti grinned and then opened up her towel and lent back so Savannah could stare at her in all her naked glory. And stare Savannah did.
What felt like an eternity later, but was only a couple of seconds, Savannah turned around and blushed, "I, I think we need to concentrate on getting dressed."
"If you say so." Marti grinned.
* * *
About two hours later Marti was standing in the main kitchen of Cheer Town marvelling at her girlfriend's work. It wasn't exactly a feast fit for a king but it was more a family sized home-cooked meal then Marti had ever gotten living with her mother, each place laid and ready with enough food on the table for everyone. Unfortunately this seemed to make the other Hellcats nervous as they cautiously took their seats around the main table.
That there was an uneasiness amongst the Hellcats seem to go unnoticed by Savannah who was keeping herself busy with the cooking, going as far as to clearly only half listen to Marti whenever she tried to talk to her about it. However while Savannah didn't notice someone other than Marti did.
"Sooooo, what's up?" Alice grinned.
Marti gave the bitchy girl a sideways glance and then murmured, "What, can't a captain just cook a meal for her squad?"
"I guess, but when it's not announced ahead of schedule that normally means Savannah has bad news and is trying to soften the blow." Alice said nonchalantly, before adding, "Plus everyone got the text that they absolutely had to be here, so that's got everyone on edge."
"Well relax, everything's fine." Marti said, kind of telling herself as well as Alice.
"I figured it might be." Alice smiled, turning to walk away and murmuring over her shoulder, "Good luck with whatever it is you might be announcing tonight. Not that I have any idea what it could possibly be of course."
Marti frowned, again wondering why Alice seemed so invested in her business before turning her attention to Savannah. Nobody had needed to tell her that her girlfriend was nervous or that she was trying to win over everyone with food, or even that everyone was nervous. However her little conversation with Alice had Marti questioning whether she should check one last time that Savannah was ready for this.
Quickly deciding it was better to be safe than sorry Marti slowly approached her captain and whispered in her ear, "Are you sure you're ready for this?"
"Uh-huh." Savannah nodded without hesitation, smiling softly as she passed Marti a plate with already carved meat, "Here, can you put this on the table."
"Sure." Marti said, helping Savannah finish laying the table and then sitting down with the rest of the Hellcats, all of them looking to their captain expectantly.
There was a long pause as Savannah looked out amongst so many familiar faces, pure terror filling her body like never before. It was easily ten times as strong as what she felt when she was about to perform, the fear of getting hurt or hurting someone else nothing on the pain Savannah felt was coming her way now. However while she had dreamt of this horrible moments thousands of times the difference was Marti was right there by her side, giving her this look which filled Savannah with strength.
So, finally, Savannah spoke, "Tha, thanks for coming on such short notice. I know we're all very busy-"
"Yeah, yeah, yeah, what's wrong? Are we still going to Regionals?" Frankie interrupted nervously.
"Yes. Don't worry, it isn't anything like that, it's..." Savannah paused, again feeling overwhelmed by all the attention on her, waiting for her to say what she'd dreaded saying for so long, and again Marti was the only reason she found the strength to continue, "I, erm... I just, I just wanted to announce, that is I wanted to say... to tell you that I... I love you all. I consider each of you a friend, and more than that... you're family. All of us together here are a family. And I love you all. And I really hope this doesn't change anything, but, I... I, I just wanted to say, to tell you, that... Marti and I are dating."
There was a long, deafening silence, then Alice let out a chuckle and murmured, "Yes!"
Marti and Savannah looked at her in confusion while the other Hellcats glared that her, but before Marti or Savannah could say anything Darwin asked, "So, you guys are what? Gay? Bi? Undecided?"
Completely thrown off by this reaction Savannah blinked, looked at Marti and stuttered, "I... we... Marti?"
Quickly taking Savannah's hand in hers Marti said, "We're gay... which shouldn't change anything, right?"
To Savannah's disbelief murmurings of 'right' and 'sure' echoed throughout the room.
"Are... are you sure? Because if anyone's uncomfortable I, I mean we-" Savannah stammered.
"You realise I'm gay, right?" Darwin pointed out before adding, "And news flash, no one cares. Why would it be any different with you two?"
Savannah blinked. Before she had a thousand reasons, but right now she couldn't think of one. To be fair though she really couldn't think of anything in general, as in she was so overwhelmed there wasn't a coherent thought going through her brain, and Marti looked so happy she really wasn't much of a help this time.
Finally Savannah came up with, "You never tried to be something you're not."
"Not here, but I didn't exactly go around broadcasting it in high school." Darwin shrugged, "And take it from someone who knows, it's never easy and you're doing great."
There was another pause and then Marti asked, "Has anyone else got anything to say?"
"Yeah, most of you owe me money." Alice grinned.
"No we don't." Frankie grumbled before trying to whisper angrily, "You push them together. That's totally cheating."
"What are you talking about?" Marti glared, not liking what she was hearing.
Looking at Marti with a challenging smile Alice explained, "I started a bet going with most of the Hellcats about when you two lovebirds would come out. I figured the way you were eye fucking each other it wouldn't have taken this long, but I underestimated how aware you were of your feelings. So, seeing as I was about to lose what I thought would be easy money, I gave you a little push."
"Which is totally cheating." Frankie grumbled.
"It would be if we agreed on any rules against it before hand, but we didn't. So you owe me money bitch." Alice countered.
Meanwhile Marti was fuming, "All... all of it... everything you said... you were just trying to win a stupid bet?"
"What? Did you actually think I cared about your happiness and well-being?" Alice questioned, adding as Marti got up threateningly, "Not that I said anything untrue, and hey, as far as you and me are concerned this is a win-win."
Marti took a few steps forward before Lewis stepped in front of her and said, "I think what Alice, and all of us, are trying to say is that we're all really happy for you."
"And totally not surprised." Alice added, and then as everyone was looking at her added, "Oh come on, who was surprised? Anyone? Honestly?"
There was a few awkward murmurings and then Darwin got up, moved around to Savannah and opened his arms, "Congratulations, I'm really proud of you."
Marti and Savannah exchanged a look, paused, and then hugged the men in front of them.
"It gets easier." Darwin whispered into Savannah's ear, "Not always at first. Some people just suck, you know? But it does eventually get easier."
"Thanks." Savannah smiled.
"Also, I totally was not part of Alice's little bet." Darwin added which caused Savannah to smile softly.
After telling Marti the same thing in regards to the bet Lewis added, "I'm here for you, ok? Whatever you need."
Marti thanked him and then she and Savannah exchanged a few more hugs with the other Hellcats, fought the urge to slap Alice, and then sat down to have their meal. After a few minutes it was almost like nothing happened, conversation becoming about everything and nothing which was incredibly comforting to both Marti and Savannah. Particularly Savannah couldn't believe how well things had gone. However both of them were very aware that it was extremely unlikely their real families would take the news quite as well.
* * *
As soon as they were done with their meal Marti and Savannah quickly said their goodbyes and headed off in the direction of The Rat. Most of the journey was spent in slightly awkward silence, an impending dread filling particularly Savannah as they got closer and closer to their destination.
Finally when Marti parked Savannah turned around, "Are you ok?"
"Why wouldn't I be?" Marti shrugged, not even really registering the question properly until she saw the look on Savannah's face. Then Marti smiled softly, gently reached out, placed her hand over Savannah's and said, "Don't worry, it's going to be fine."
Savannah smiled softly back, "You don't think your Mom will freak?"
"Oh she's totally going to freak. Like, nuclear levels of freakdom." Marti said with a smile on her face, although stopped herself midsentence and she saw how apprehensive Savannah looked, "But she'll calm down, think about it, and it will probably make a lot of sense. I know it does to me. Besides, she has no right to judge considering everything I've put up with looking after her for all these years, and more to the point she will definitely need more looking after in the future so trust me, if she has a problem with having a lesbian daughter that will only last until she needs yet another favour."
"Oh." Savannah murmured, not sounding convinced.
"Everything is going to be fine. Trust me." Marti reassured, "And you know what, you don't have to come in if you-"
"No." Savannah quickly cut her off, "You were there for me earlier, and I know it's a lot to ask but I really need you to be with me when I tell my Mom. So I'm coming, ok?"
"Ok." Marti murmured, avoiding the urge to make a dirty joke and simply adding, "But leave the talking to me. My Mom can be a handful, especially when she gets riled up. She can also end up saying a bunch of stuff she doesn't really mean, so if I ask, do you think you can leave? Not that I don't want you there, I do, I just don't want you to get caught in the crossfire, ok?"
"Ok, that's fine." Savannah muttered apprehensively, immediately missing Marti's hand as it let go of her own so the blonde could exit the car.
The brunette quickly followed suit and the two girls headed into the bar.
Wanda Perkins was easy enough to find, behind the bar as usual at this time of night, wondering back and forth as she took orders and poured drinks. In her element, Marti thought with a grumble.
For a few moments they just watched, neither girl exactly rushing to go over. Then when there was a lull in the traffic of drunks getting their fix Marti walked over, slipped behind the bar and tried to get her mother's attention. As always it was easier said than done.
"Mom... MOM!" Marti called out numerous times.
She got the usual excuses, "Just a second honey... two ticks... be with you in a minute..."
Finally Marti cried out in frustration, "I'M IN LOVE!"
That got her mother's attention just as Marti thought it would, the older woman quickly looking at her with wide-eyed joy before handing the final customers a beer each and telling them, "On the house."
With that Wanda grabbed hold of her daughter's hand and pretty much literally dragged her into the back, completely abandoning the bar. Savannah looked around for a few moments and then slowly followed the two blondes.
Of course the second they were out of sight Wanda started babbling, "Who is he? Tell me everything? How did you guys meet? Did he compliment your hair? Have you guys gone on a date yet? Have you had sex? Are you using protection? Oh, is it Dan? It's Dan isn't it! I always knew-"
"It's Savannah!" Marti blurted out, partly to just get it out and partly to shut her Mom up.
The latter of which was a roaring success for a few long seconds. Of course Savannah had chosen the moment her name was mentioned to appear, Wanda looking back and forth between the two girls for what felt like forever before finally murmuring, "What?"
"I'm, I'm in love with Savannah." Marti said, surprised how difficult it was to actually say the words. Luckily for her Savannah moved closer, giving Marti the chance to reach out and gently take her hand in hers. That gave Marti the strength to continue, "We're in love. Which I know is kind of crazy because we haven't known each other that long, but... it just kind of happened."
There was a long pause and then Wanda looked at the brunette, "Savannah honey, could you give us a minute."
Savannah looked at Marti, silently asking her what she wanted to do.
Marti wasn't exactly sure herself. Having Savannah there really, really helped, but she could tell her Mom was probably about to freak out and as she had said earlier she really didn't want Savannah to end up in the crossfire.
So Marti gently squeezed Savannah's hand and asked, "Would you mind? I swear I'll be right out."
"Sure." Savannah said, a little startled as Marti moved forwards to kiss her.
Sensing that was the case Marti change tactics, bringing Savannah's hand up to her lips and gently kissing it before letting it go. In response Savannah smiled, walked to the door and then with one final look over her shoulder left.
"Honey..." Wanda began the second Savannah was gone, although she struggled to find the right words, "I know it's easy to get caught up in experimentation, but-"
"God Mom I'm not experimenting!" Marti snapped angrily, "I'm not confused, or going through a phase, or whatever other bull shit you can think of. I'm gay! I like girls! I love Savannah!"
"Ok, ok, ok, don't get your panties in a bunch." Wanda said defensively while lifting her hands up in a sign she intended to mean no offence but she would later wonder if it came off a little patronising, "It's just not every day you learn you have a lesbian daughter."
"I know." Marti murmured, sort of feeling bad for snapping, although not sure she should be, "It's just... don't trivialise this, ok? Because I've never felt this way before about anyone."
Wanda frowned, "What about Dan?"
"What about him?" Marti glared.
"Nothing." Wanda said unconvincingly before adding, "It's just that... I kind of thought you two would end up together."
Again Marti was flawed. Had she really been the only one with no idea two very different people had been having feelings for her?
Taking a deep breath to calm herself Marti tried to explain, "Dan and I are just friends. That's all we are, that's all we've ever been."
"Please, he's been your boyfriend without benefits for years." Wanda said.
"Well now Savannah is my girlfriend with full benefits." Marti snapped, before again trying to calm herself, "Look, he's been my best friend for as long as I can remember and I care about him a lot, but I've never felt that way about him. Ever."
"Well he definitely feels that way about you." Wanda said, recalling an earlier conversation, "In fact he was just telling me how much he loved you and that he was going to do whatever it took to be with you."
"You talk to him? Today?" Marti questioned.
"Sure." Wanda smiled, "In fact I think he's still here... oh honey, you didn't come out to him, did you? Think what that could do to him."
Marti was only half listening as she was already at the door, her heart racing as she feared the worst. After all Dan hadn't been exactly in his right mind when she saw him earlier, and to combine that with alcohol was a dangerous mix. God dammit, why hadn't she taken two seconds to look around? Then again she had been so concentrated on her mother and the place was really quite crowded.
Opening the door Marti's worst fears were pretty much realised as she found Dan roughly pushing Savannah backwards as she tried to reach for his phone which he had pressed to his ear. The force of the push almost knocked Savannah off her feet and the brunette was crying almost hysterically.
"Please Dan, don't..." Savannah pleaded weakly.
"I warned you bitch." Dan spat, his finger ready to press the call button, "I warned you what would happen if you didn't do what I say..."
"Please!" Savannah wept.
"Fine, then do it." Dan ordered, "Break up with her and leave town. I don't ever want to see you again."
"What the hell is going on?" Marti yelled as she stomped over to them, not giving a damn that they now had the attention of pretty much everyone in the bar.
"Marti... I..." Dan said weakly.
"Get the hell away from her!" Marti screamed, pushing him away from Savannah.
Gritting his teeth Dan swallowed his anger and tried to calmly explain himself, "Look Marti, I'm trying to help you."
"Help me?" Marti fumed.
"Yeah, help you." Dan said, "You're about to make a mistake which will ruin both your lives. That's why I did what I did. Why I'm doing what I'm doing."
Turning to her girlfriend Marti asked, "What's he talking about?"
"I, I..." Savannah gulped and then stammered, "Dan, he... he threatened to tell my parents if, if I didn't break up with you."
When Marti looked at him with a terrifying rage Dan quickly added, "Because this whole thing is one big mistake. Marti, think about it. You're not like her. You're not some brain-damaged dyke slut, you're-"
A loud 'oh' erupted from the audience as Marti punched Dan square in the jaw.
She hadn't meant too. She was just totally blinded by rage and the next thing she knew she was punching him as hard as she could, almost as if it was some kind of natural reaction. A natural reaction which really hurt her hand, not that she really noticed it given what happened next.
Dan fell like a sack of bricks... or however that saying was supposed to go, Marti feeling momentarily proud, and then a little worried for his safety, then angry at him again.
For a few moments she just stared down at him. He didn't get up. Then someone she didn't recognise slowly reached down, checked his pulse and then said, "His fine. Just,erm, a little unconscious."
Then a more familiar voice murmured, "Wow, nice shot."
Turning to see her classmate Morgan Pepper Marti glared, "He had it coming."
"Sounds like." Morgan said as most of the crowd dispersed and went back to what was important to them, their drinks.
After a few moments of silence Marti said, "I'm gay by the way."
"Was that meant to be a secret?" Morgan asked nonchalantly, before quickly adding after a look Marti gave him, "But if you're on some kind of coming out crusade, good for you. And congratulations. I'm all for gay rights, particularly between two lovely ladies."
Ignoring her sort of friend somewhat sleazy smile Marti turned to see her mother staring at her in disbelief. Marti return that stare for a few moments, then move closer and softly said, "When he wakes up tell him I get it. Love can make you crazy. But... I just can't see his face again. Like, ever. So... tell him thanks for everything, but I never want to see him again."
With that Marti turned and left The Rat, Savannah only briefly hesitating before following her.
Once they were outside and almost to Marti's car the blonde turned around, tears in her eyes as she yelled, "Why didn't you tell me?"
"I, I..." Savannah stammered.
"Is that why coming out to you was so important? Because of Dan?" Marti asked angrily, "Is that the only reason-"
"No." Savannah interrupted, "I just... I didn't tell you because I thought you might think that, but that's not true. I wanted to be with you because I love you... that's why I chose you and want to tell everyone. Yes, I want them to hear it from me, but that's because it's the right thing to do and apparently I don't have a lot of time to do it. I would have done it eventually, I swear, it's just... I need you to know I'm doing this first and foremost because I want to be with you, then because it's the right thing, with Dan's threat a distant third, ok?
"Ok." Marti said softly, moving forward to whisper, "I, I didn't mean to yell, I just-."
"It's ok." Savannah interrupted, "I just... I really wanted to tell everyone. I did. It's just... a lot, you know? But, I... I want this. I would have probably preferred not doing it all at once, but it's better this way. I wasn't lying before, I really do just want to get this over with, because it's killing me Marti. It was always killing me. Feeling like... like I was lying to everyone, and who I really am is wrong, and disgusting, and... sinful... and you saved me. You saved me from that. Don't you understand? You saved me. That is why I choose you. Why I will always choose you. I, I love you and I want to be with you. Everyone in my life who matters should know that, you know?"
"I know." Marti said softly, gently embracing a now weeping Savannah, "I love you too. And I will always, always choose you. No matter what the choice is, it's always going to be you."
For a while Marti just held the other girl, then she noticed her mother was again standing just a few feet away from them.
Gently pulling back Marti cup the back of Savannah's head with both hands, rested her forehead against the other girl's and softly said, "Go wait in the car. Please? I promise I'll just be a second, then we can go up to your parents and get everything out in the open. Then we can be officially together. Ok?"
"Ok." Savannah smiled softly, the two girls briefly kissing before disentangling themselves. Savannah briefly looked over her shoulder at Marti and then Wanda, silently prayed and then got into the car.
Meanwhile Marti had walked over to her Mom and defensively asked, "What?"
After a few seconds Wanda murmured, "You really do love her, don't you?"
"It's what I've been trying to tell you." Marti huffed indignantly.
There was a longer pause and then Wanda said, "Look honey... this might take a little getting used to for me... but, I love you. You're my baby girl, no matter what."
This sudden 180 really took Marti off guard, but after a few seconds she supposed it wasn't totally 180. Her Mom drove her crazy and made her life really difficult sometimes, but Marti never doubted that Wanda loved her and was always trying to do right by her, no matter how disastrous the results might be. Of course there had been some doubt whether her Mom would even try and be ok with the gay thing, and now it seemed that she was going to try Marti felt more relieved than she could have ever imagined. In fact it totally took her by surprise how much her Mom's opinion seemed to matter to her, Marti immediately feeling embarrassed as a tear of relief and even happiness threatened to fall from her right eye.
Then of course her Mom had to ruin the moment, "Besides, Savannah seems like a nice girl. You could do a lot worse... and you won't get pregnant before you're ready. But if this really is permanent I still totally want grandkids somehow, even if I have to inseminate you myself. Or maybe it would be better if Savannah was your baby Mama. That girl seems like she'd make a good Mom, and that way you can concentrate on your career. I mean, you're all tough and butch, so she's got to be the girl in the relationship, right? I mean, I know you're both girls, but-"
"Mom!" Marti quickly cut her off before murmuring, "I... I love you too."
The two of them exchanged a smile, then a hug, then Wanda said, "I'm going to lock Dan in the storeroom and take his phone so he won't be able to bother you. And when he wakes up I'll be sure to tell him everything you said and something from me about how if he comes near you again I'll make sure he won't be having any children."
"Thanks Mom." Marti said softly.
"I mean, the things he said..." Wanda murmured, "I didn't think he had that in him."
"I don't know, I kind of get it." Marti said, looking over at Savannah who was watching them from the car, "Love can make you do just about anything."
* * *
After one more brief, awkward hug Marti said goodbye to her Mom, got into her car and headed off to the place Marti least wanted to be in the entire world.
She'd met Savannah's Mom only in passing but she had certainly lived up to her reputation, and while the stuck up bitch could say anything she wanted about Marti and the blonde wouldn't care she feared what the older woman might say to Savannah. Marti was also worried what she might do if Savannah's mother hurt her. Of course that was just it, it was all but guaranteed that Savannah's mother would hurt her, that she would use her words to cut into Savannah and break her heart worse then she'd ever done before, which apparently was really saying something. And Marti couldn't stop it, and worse she wasn't sure she could trust herself not to lash out at anyone who hurt Savannah which wouldn't help matters. After all punching Dan was one thing, attacking her girlfriend's mother was something else entirely.
It really didn't help that again the two girls barely said a word to each other, Savannah clearly envisioning what was about to happen over and over again and there wasn't a damn thing Marti could think to say to make her feel better and honestly Marti hated herself for that. All she could do was ask for directions, Savannah mumbling her replies until finally she said, "Stop here."
After parking outside of the house which was at least four times the size of the biggest place Marti had ever lived there was a moment of silence. Then Marti turned to Savannah and asked, "Is... is there anything I can do? Anything I can say? Because if there is just tell me, and I'll do it."
Savannah smiled, "Just leave the talking to me."
"Are you sure?" Marti asked, "Because I could just go in there and-"
"No! They have to hear it from me." Savannah said firmly, before squeezing Marti's hand, "But having you here with me... it means everything. Ok?"
"Ok." Marti murmured and with that they slowly headed towards the door, the walk, much like the drive, feeling like it took forever and yet only seconds.
It was the same story with the wait between ringing the doorbell and someone answering it, both cheerleaders almost relieved when the door finally opened to reveal their Cyclone rival/Savannah's sister Charlotte.
Looking at the grim looks on their faces Charlotte frowned, "Who died?"
"Is, is Mom and Dad here?" Savannah asked politely.
"Yeah, why?" Charlotte asked.
"I, I need to talk to them. To all of you." Savannah said softly.
"Ok." Charlotte murmured, somewhat worried by Savannah's tone.
Moving aside Charlotte allowed the two Hellcats to enter her home, closed the door behind them and let them into the main room where Parker and Layne Monroe were sitting together on their sofa silently reading.
Although they looked up simultaneously it was Savannah's father who spoke first, a brief smile crossing his face before quickly pushing it away, "Savannah."
"Savannah..." Layne Monroe murmured with noticeably less enthusiasm than her husband, "To what do we owe this unexpected visit?"
Savannah took a deep breath and then sat down in the chair opposite to her parents and said, "I... I have something to tell you."
When her sister glanced at her Charlotte took the hint and slowly moved over to where her parents were sitting, the three of them now looking at Savannah expectantly in a way which made the nervous brunette feel as if her throat was about to literally close up.
"Well spitted out child." Layne demanded after a few long seconds.
Savannah gulped softly, took another deep breath and said, "I... I... I want you to know that I love you. That, that I love you all. And I'm so grateful. For everything you taught me, for everything you gave me... I... I don't know who I would be if it wasn't for you. Mom, Dad, you gave me something to believe in. Taught me right from wrong. Gave me goals to strive too. And Charlotte, I know we haven't always gotten along, but when I look back what I most remember is us playing together when we were little, and sharing secrets, and just all those times we were there for each other. And even after everything, I still feel if I really needed you, you'd be there for me. I know I'll be there for you, no matter what happens. I really want you to know that Char."
"Savannah, honey, what's wrong?" Parker asked, becoming extremely worried by his daughter's tone, "Are you in trouble? Sick? Do you need money?"
"Parker! We are not giving her money." Layne quickly snapped before turning back to her daughter, "Now, I'm not sure what you have got yourself into young lady but rest assured you will not be getting any help from us. You turned your back on this family and you need to deal with the consequences of that."
Marti, who was leaning against the chair Savannah was sitting on, dug her nails into the fabric and gritted her teeth to prevent herself from lashing out.
As for Savannah she took another deep breath and promised, "I'm not here because I want anything. I just... I... you're my family. I owe you the truth. Even if you don't like it, even if it means that you'll hate me, I need to tell you that... that I love you, and I will always love you no matter what, and... I don't expect you to like it... I don't even expect you to support it... but... I'm gay."
There was a deafening silence, the longest and most painful of Savannah's entire life. She looked back and forth between family members, her father and sister clearly shocked by this revelation... even if maybe her Dad was slightly more so. Her Mom was expressionless, then again Savannah had never been good at reading her mother and she wasn't exactly the most emotional of women as it was.
Finally, just to break the silence, Savannah started talking again, "I tried... I tried so hard not to be. I did everything I could think of to be normal, and I think I even have myself convinced it was going to be ok. But I was going to be ok. But it wasn't. I wasn't. I was so... unhappy... and then, I met Marti-"
"That's quite enough." Layne cut her off, "Get out."
"Mom." Savannah said weakly.
"Get out of my house!" Layne said coldly, "I will not sit here and listen to you trying to justify whatever depravities you and this other deviant have subjected yourselves too."
"Layne, calm down." Parker said, immediately regretting it and quickly adding, "This isn't her fault. She's clearly the victim of a sexual predator and she needs our help."
"Dad." Savannah murmured weakly.
"It's ok honey, I know of a few places which specialises in curing these types of diseases." Parker said.
"She does not have a disease!" Marti finally snapped, "She's perfect."
"Clearly." Layne said dryly, "That's why she brought you here, a fellow sexual deviant, so she can gang up on us."
"It's not like that." Savannah said firmly, "I just needed-"
"To what? Embarrassed this family? Haven't you already done enough of that?" Layne asked, following up with, "Please tell me you have at least not told anyone else of your poor choices. Your family should not have to live with the shame of such a sin."
Pausing only briefly Savannah said, "Everyone who needs to know knows. Some of the other Hellcats have big mouth so I'm sure word will soon spread."
There was a moment's silence and then Layne said, "Selfish child. Do you have any idea what you're going to put this family through? Do you?"
Savannah lowered her head, "I'm sorry... but I can't help who I am."
"Of course you can." Layne said, "We all have inappropriate thought Savannah, but what kind of mother would I be if I encouraged such obscene behaviour? I would be no better than those vulgar women who stand by their murderous offspring even after they've been convicted and are on death row awaiting their punishment in this life and the next. And mark my words my child, you will be burning alongside them if you do not seek help, but you shall find none from me, or this family. We have given you everything and in return you have spat in our faces. Tried to flaunt your chosen lifestyle of depravity, and worse to justify it. For that I shall never forgive you, but I will pray that God does and you realise the error of your ways before it is too late. Now leave this home. There is no place for you here."
There was another moment of silence, then Savannah got up to leave.
Realising he had to do something Parker got up and said, "Savannah, please... you're sick and need help. If not for us than think about your future. That cheer camp you always wanted? What girl would go to one run by a dyke?"
"One who's not a homophobic ass hole." Marti spat.
Glaring at the blonde momentarily Parker turned back to his daughter, "Please Savannah... I know this isn't your fault. You probably just caught something from socialising with shameless deviants who blindly sin their way into hell, which is our fault. I knew we should have never allowed you to leave Memphis Christian. The debauchery you must have witnessed, and been a part of, I'm so sorry."
Savannah paused for a moment and then said, "I've had these feelings my entire life. I fought them with every fibre of my being and I was miserable. Then I fell in love with an amazing girl who makes me happier than I could have ever imagined."
"Savannah." Parker said warningly.
Ignoring him Savannah continued boldly, "I'm not sleeping in someone else's bed every night or engaging in wild orgies. I'm in a committed relationship with another girl who loves me. And I love her. And we're happy."
Her father just stared at her blankly for a few moments, then her mother called out, "Just let her go Parker. You know how stubborn she can be. All we can do now is hope that once she's had her fun humiliating this family she'll get bored and eventually come crawling back. And if she does she better mean it, because your father may forgive you once Savannah but I'm not sure he can promise a second time. As for me, I'm not sure what you could do to make up for the embarrassment you have and are going to cause me and this family."
There was a long pause, then Savannah slowly headed towards the door. Marti followed her, desperately fighting the urge to lash out.
Just before they were about to exit the room Savannah turned and said, "Mom, Dad, Charlotte, I love you. I will always love you."
With that Savannah turned and left the house she had grown up in and would most likely never be invited back too. Again Marti followed her, feeling a brief cessation of pride from not turning around and punching anyone however it was quickly replaced by concern for her girlfriend.
"Savannah... Savannah... talk to me baby... please?" Marti begged.
"Just get me out of here." Savannah mumbled softly without looking at the blonde.
Without another word the two cheerleaders got into Marti's car and drove away, although they didn't get far before Marti parked in the nearest available space and turned to the brunette.
For a while she just stared at her, then Marti softly said, "We can stay here all night, I don't care, we're not moving until I can do or say something to make this better."
"Please Savannah, there must be something." Marti begged.
Yet more silence, then Savannah said, "That sucked."
Marti blinked, and then softly giggled, Savannah joining her but there was just something about the way she did which made Marti even more worried, "Yeah, it did... do, do you want to talk about it?"
"What is there to say?" Savannah asked, almost immediately answering her own question, "I mean, that... that was the worst experience of my entire life. And now, in a way, I feel like I'm dead inside. Like my heart has been ripped out of my chest and I'm laying dead on the floor. And the worst part of it is that... I expected it. That deep down I knew, this is how they'd react. But... at the same time... it's over. It's... it's finally over. I told them Marti, and even though it was just as I'd always imagined it, it's over. I don't have to worry about them rejecting me, because they just did. Which I know sounds crazy, but I feel... relieved. Because I never, not once, believed they'd except me. I couldn't even imagine it when I tried. It always went just like that, and for as long as I can remember... that, has been my biggest fear. The thing that kept me up at night, that made me cry myself to sleep, that haunted me for my entire life has finally happened to me and it's like this massive weight is finally off my shoulders and I feel... free. And happy. So very, very happy."
"Then why are you crying?" Marti asked, only just noticing as she reached out to cup her girlfriend's face that she and Savannah had moved slowly towards each other during the brunette's little speech.
Savannah noticed the same thing, leaned into the touch, smiled softly and said, "These are happy tears."
"Are you sure?" Marti murmured, wishing she could think of something better to say.
"Yes." Savannah confirmed, admitting, "Well, maybe there's a little sadness too. But as devastating as everything that just happened was I got through it because of you. Because I know I'm not all alone like I thought I'd be if I ever came out. I still have my squad, and maybe your Mom, and most of all you. More than anything else you kept me together in there, helped me stay strong so I could say what needed to be said, and now I'm so, so happy because now, I get to be with you. No secrets, no sneaking around, no lying to everyone around us."
"We weren't lying." Marti tried to argue, before adding, "Well, at first I was lying to myself about the fact that I'd totally fallen for you, but lately we've just been... keeping certain things to ourselves, which isn't the same thing."
"It is to me." Savannah said softly, "But that doesn't matter now. What matters is that now we can finally, truly be together. I can openly be your girlfriend, and you can be openly mine, and... and it, it still might take some getting used to for me. I, I might struggle with public displays of affection, or hesitate to introduce you as my girlfriend, or just put my foot in my mouth, but... I'm going to try, ok? Just... just be a little patient with me, please?"
Marti rested her forehead gently against Savannah's and gently murmured, "Whatever you need. Just tell me what it is, and I'll do it. Because like I said, I just want to make you happy."
Savannah smiled, paused for a second and then said, "It works both ways you know."
"I know." Marti smiled.
"Seriously..." Savannah said, biting her lip, "You've been so patient with me already... given me everything I needed... everything that I... that I wanted. Is there... is there anything you need Marti? Anything you... want?"
"What do you mean?" Marti asked, having a vague idea from the changing Savannah's tone but not wanting to jump to conclusions.
"Well... I..." Savannah blushed, "I was just thinking maybe there was something I could do to thank you for everything you've done for me. Because I'm not sure you'll ever understand just how much you've done, because until you came along even I didn't know how badly I needed saving and you did it. You saved me. And I can never, ever repay you for that, but... maybe we could... I don't know, role play or I could wear something, like... a costume, or lingerie, or... I don't know... something..."
Marti couldn't help but grin at just how cute her girlfriend was when she was blushing, and right now she was blushing a lot, or just how adorable the last few words had sounded as Savannah gently whispered them.
Of course this was no laughing matter so Marti quickly said in a very serious yet happy tone, "You don't have to do any of that stuff, but if you want to I am very, very open to it."
"Oh." Savannah murmured, before quickly adding, "It's not that I'm a pervert or anything, I just always thought it would be nice to dress up for my man... while I tried and failed to stop imagining dressing up for my woman."
"And I guess that would be me now, huh?" Marti grinned.
"Uh-huh... you're my woman." Savannah nodded, blushed and smiled, "So... is there something like that you'd want? Or anything at all? Because I really want to please you Marti... I really want to please my woman."
Marti wasn't sure if Savannah knew just how sexy she'd just sounded. Part of it was how Savannah's eyes had seemed to cloud with desire, but the tone of voice portrayed that as well as an intoxicating combination of nervousness and a need to please. It might have been the sexiest thing Marti had ever heard, and considering how much she loved the sounds Savannah made during their love making sessions that was really saying something.
However while the tone of their conversation had drastically changed Marti was very aware just how fragile Savannah was right now so the last thing she wanted to do was freak her out or make her promise to do something that she would later regret. Just as importantly Marti didn't want certain things to be associated with today, and specifically the end of it.
Of course while Marti could happily make love to Savannah as she had done throughout the week without any additions to it there were a number of things she wanted to do to this girl. Like covering Savannah's entire body in chocolate and licking every bit of it off. And playing with Savannah's amazing ass which Marti felt extremely drawn too. And most of all she wanted to try using toys, specifically a strap-on. But again Marti had no intention of bringing these things up, at least not right now, however since Savannah was looking at her expectantly Marti wondered if there was something she could get away with.
Before Marti could think of something a phone started ringing. In the silence of the car it sounded deafening, both girls totally startled by it before, recognising the tune, Savannah quickly pulled out her mobile and checked the caller ID.
After briefly showing her surprise Savannah hit the call button, brought the phone up to her lips and softly murmured, "Charlotte?"
"Hey..." Charlotte's voice came from the other end, pausing briefly before she added, "So... you really are queer, huh?"
Savannah went very pale. She had thought her nightmare was finally over, and concentrating on Marti and their future had really helped Savannah at least momentarily put what happened with her parents behind her. Now it seemed as if she would have to endure one more heartbreak before finally being free. After all Charlotte had stayed silent ever since entering the main room, at first just looking shocked at Savannah before keeping her head down and saying nothing as their parents had yelled at Savannah. Now perhaps Charlotte was going to have her turn telling Savannah exactly what she thought of her 'chosen' lifestyle.
"I'm... I'm sorry Char." Savannah whimpered.
There was another long pause and then Charlotte said, "They're still arguing you know? About what to do with you? But Mom always wins these things so I don't think anyone will end up trying to grab you and take you to a homo curing camp, or whatever they call it. And I'm pretty sure Dad can't legally do that anyway, so you're probably safe, but... I don't know, maybe you should keep an eye out or something."
"Oh." Savannah mumbled, not sure what to say.
There was more silence, and then Charlotte said, "Listen... I'm not sure I could ever really be ok with the whole gay thing... I mean it just seems icky and wrong to me, and we were always taught it was a sin, but... you're my sister, and you were right... we've always tried to be there for each other when it really mattered, and I don't know if I can, but.. I think I owe it to you to try."
"Really?" Savannah murmured, happy tears filling her eyes.
"Yeah." Charlotte said, quickly adding, "I mean... I'm going to need some time to wrap my head around this. Like maybe a week or something. Then maybe I could, I don't know, give you a call or something? Then maybe we could talk. Well, you could talk and I could try, you know, listening."
"That would be amazing. Thank you." Savannah said, now softly crying.
More silence and then Charlotte murmured, "You know what's funny? That this isn't exactly a surprise to me, or Mom. I mean, Kathy kept telling me you were a dyke... sorry, lesbian, and I kept telling her she was wrong, but then you showed up with that moose of a girl at Qualifiers and... the way you looked that her... I hated you then because you were being so... obscene. Kathy pretty much convinced all the other Cyclones you were gay after that and I, I wasn't sure what to believe so I talked to Mom about it and she said she'd noticed you had certain indecent feelings and all we could do was pray you wouldn't give in to temptation. But... I don't know, you never seemed to be as happy as you acted like you were, so... maybe even if it is wrong being gay is right for you, you know? Anyway, I thought Mom was really harsh considering she pretty much knew already. And I'm sorry I didn't say anything, I just... she scares me, you know? They both do sometimes. So... yeah, I'm sorry, and I'll call you... ok?"
"Ok." Savannah murmured, adding when she realised Charlotte was about to hang up, "I, I meant it Char... I still love you, no matter what."
"I know." Charlotte murmured, hesitantly adding, "I still love you too. Goodbye."
With that Charlotte hung up leaving Savannah to stare at Marti who had been obviously listening to at least her side of the conversation. From the look on her face the blonde might have picked up more than that, after all things were pretty quiet all around them, but it seemed right to tell Marti exactly what the call was about.
However when it came to it all Savannah could manage was, "My sister still loves me."
Then Savannah broke down again, those tears of happiness which had been already flowing freely turning from a stream to practically a waterfall. The next thing Savannah knew she was in Marti's arms weeping softly, the two girls staying like that for what felt like an eternity. Then Marti was gently resting Savannah's head against her shoulder while she drove them back to Cheer Town... back to their home. Their little two bed room which now had more happy memories than the home Savannah had grown up in.
The entire journey felt like a dream, Savannah barely aware of anything until she was in bed with her girlfriend. It was the first time since shortly before they started officially dating they didn't have sex before going to sleep, the two cheerleaders wordlessly throwing on pyjamas as they were both just too emotionally drained to do anything except go to sleep.
Right before going to sleep Marti stroked her girlfriend's brunette locks and whispered, "I love you Savannah. I don't care what anyone says, you're beautiful, amazing, and perfect. Never listen to anyone who tells you different, ok?"
"Ok." Savannah smiled softly against the other girl's chest, "I love you too Marti."
* * *
The next morning they had sex. A lot. In fact over the course of the next week they were pretty much going at it like bunnies, Savannah slowly but surely becoming more comfortable with her sexuality as time went on.
Not that they were total animals. Savannah didn't allow them to be. They won't allowed to miss classes, social events, and absolutely no missing cheerleader practice, no matter how convincing Marti was that particularly one of the first two would be worth missing for once.
Through it all Marti thought a lot about Savannah's offer to do something for her. It wasn't something she wanted to bring up too soon, but after a week had gone by Marti could no longer wait.
Deciding to ask at the end of their fourteenth date, not that Marti saw much point in keeping score at this stage, the blonde made the night as special as possible. That included a private little dinner for two in their room lit by candlelight, Marti swiping a bottle of wine so they could have a glass each, not enough to get them drunk but enough to loosen inhibitions. It wasn't long after they finished eating that they began to gently kiss, which led to passionately making out, which in turn led to the two cheerleaders slowly stripping each other of their clothes.
Once she was naked and on top of the other girl Marti finally asked the question she had been waiting to ask, "Savannah, do you remember how you offered to do something for me if I wanted it? As in, something sexual?"
Savannah blushed but nodded, "Did... Did you think of something?"
After briefly biting her lip Marti whispered, "Yeah, there is something... do, do you remember our first time together?"
Again Savannah blushed but nodded, "Uh-huh."
"Well... I wouldn't want to change a single thing about it because, well, here we are. But sometimes I feel guilty." Marti murmured, before quickly explaining, "It was your first time and you deserved so much more."
"What do you mean?" Savannah asked.
"I mean like candlelight and a romantic meal. Romantic meals. And movie dates, and jewellery, and someone treating you like a Queen until finally you tell them you're ready for something like this." Marti said softly.
"Is, is that why you did all this?" Savannah grinned softly.
"Yes." Marti admitted, "I wanted to give you the night you deserved."
Gently cupping Marti's face Savannah whispered, "You did the first time round. I swear, I knew the whole time you'd stop if I asked, but I didn't want you to because I loved you and I wanted to be with you. I wasn't ready to admit it, but deep down I knew exactly what I wanted, what I needed, and you gave it to me. Never doubt that. It's one of the many reasons I'm so grateful to you. But... if you want to redo our first time I'm totally up for that."
For a moment Marti just enjoyed the little blush on Savannah's face. Then she softly said, "It doesn't have to be a total redo... it can still be a first time."
Frowning softly Savannah asked, "What do you mean?"
"I mean..." Marti murmured, tracing a finger slowly down Savannah's body until she was pressing against the other girl's sex, "That technically... you're still a virgin."
Savannah's blushed turned from little to almost violent, "Oh... ohhhh."
Marti smiled softly as she slid her finger up and down Savannah's pussy lips, somewhat relaxing the brunette while she explained, "I have something... a toy... which could get the job done. It's 8 inches long, which apparently is just over medium, and if we do this it will hurt at first, but it will no matter what the size and trust me, it will be worth it. I mean, my first time sucked, but what didn't suck was getting to use a vibrator on myself later. But we can save vibration for another day. For now I think we just concentrate on taking your cherry. If you want too. Because you don't have too. Seriously, if you wanna say no now or back out later that's fine, but I promise you Savannah, if you give this a chance you won't regret it."
There was a long pause as Savannah thought about this.
Honestly, despite what some people might think, she wasn't such a prude she didn't know about sex toys. Of course she'd never used one, but that didn't mean she hadn't considered it. Heck, Savannah had done so even before she had accepted that she was a lesbian, and while back then she never thought she'd be able to go through with it lately the brunette had been considering bringing up the subject with Marti, see if it was something she was interested in trying.
Apparently it was, which pretty much sealed the deal that Savannah would do this. Because surely this was the least she could do after everything Marti had done for her. Not that Savannah wasn't incredibly nervous and even fearful about what was going to happen, but at the same time she was kind of excited.
So taking a deep breath Savannah cleared her head and gathered up all her courage, much like before going through one of her cheerleading routines, and whispered, "Ok."
Marti smiled softly, but then looked serious, "Are you sure?"
"Yes." Savannah whispered, "I... I want you to take my cherry."
Savannah honestly hadn't meant that to sound dirty or anything. It just kind of fell out of her mouth. Then when she heard it, and played it back in her head, she blushed.
Meanwhile Marti got that look on her face like she was going to devour Savannah, the blonde seeming to do just that as she leaned forward and attacked the brunette's lips with her own.
Only too happy to be 'devoured' Savannah kissed back passionately, her worries and doubts about this melting away with most of her other thoughts and feelings as she became lost in this heated sign of affection. Then Marti's index finger gently slid into Savannah's already very wet centre, the cheerleader captain moaning happily into her roommate's mouth at the very welcome invasion of her most private area.
For the next few minutes Savannah was only focused on Marti's lips and tongue caressing her own while her girlfriend pumped a finger slowly in and out of her love hole. Then Marti broke the kiss and smiled down at Savannah softly while continuing to gently fuck her with her finger.
"My toy... it's a strap-on." Marti explained huskily, quickly adding, "It detaches from the harness so I could use it like a normal dildo if you want, but I thought it might be more... intimate this way. Give you the full experience, you know? Plus that way I can be on top of you, our bodies rubbing together... I just, thought that might be better."
Savannah definitely liked the sound of that and the excited look in Marti's eyes, and the way the blonde was explaining what she wanted to do to her in that husky tone, made Savannah's decision easy.
"Ok." Savannah said, this time trying to sound sexy as she added, "You can take my virginity with a strap-on if you want."
Despite a week of Savannah becoming slowly but surely more comfortable with her sexuality both girls were surprised by how confident and sexy she just sounded. Of course neither girl complained, especially not Savannah who's reward was a second finger in her needy hole, the additional finger helping Marti bring Savannah to the edge of climax in what felt like seconds. Unfortunately at the last moment Marti removed her finger, leaving Savannah to whimper at the loss, even though it was no mystery why the blonde had stopped.
Wanting to further put Savannah at ease Marti made a show of bringing her girl juice covered fingers up to her lips and slowly taking them into her mouth and sucking them clean. Not that the moan Marti let out as she tasted Savannah's juices was remotely fake, the blonde cheerleader briefly closing her eyes so she could savour that sweet flavour, the whole time secretly wishing she had fucked Savannah to orgasm so she could be tasting her girlfriend's cum right now as well as her delicious girl cream.
Once her fingers were clean Marti quickly retrieved the sex toy she had purchased earlier in the day from her bag, pulling it out of the box and sliding it up her thighs without looking back at Savannah. Then after Marti had securely tightened the harness around her waist she slowly turned around to find Savannah looking at her with a mixture of nervousness and lust.
For a few seconds Marti stayed like that, giving Savannah a few seconds to get used to the sight or to back out if she really wanted too. Then as slowly and as sexily as she could Marti strolled over to the bed and crawled up so she was between Savannah's legs. Once she was close enough Marti began sliding her lips gently up Savannah's right thigh, concentrating on the sensitive area around her final destination for a few seconds before sliding her tongue out over her girlfriend's pussy lips.
Immediately Savannah let out this beautiful little cry which was more than enough encouragement for Marti to start eagerly lapping away at her roommate's most sensitive area, making sure her tongue touched the most sensitive place of all with every lick. After a while Marti even zeroed in on that place, sliding her tongue all around Savannah's clit and even gently pressing down on it, both actions making the girl she loved tremble under her touch.
While she worked on Savannah's clit Marti slowly opened the small tube of lubricant she had been hiding in her left hand, squirted some of it onto her right hand and started rubbing it into her new appendage. She was thorough, making sure every inch of the fake cock was as wet as possible to make this easier on Savannah. Then Marti dropped the tube, reached up and slid two still very wet fingers into Savannah's sex. The fingers entered easily and after only a few gentle thrusts Marti could tell that Savannah was again almost ready to cum, the temptation to make her do just that was almost overwhelming.
In fact part of Marti want to forget about the strap-on entirely. After all her sex life was already fantastic, what did she need anything else for? Besides, even though she had done this so Savannah wouldn't obsess over how much taking a sex toy inside her might hurt Marti still felt guilty about just springing this on the girl she loved with all her heart. And, even though she had done it to calm Savannah's nerves all this finger work was at least a little about convincing Savannah to let her fuck her like this, which again made Marti feel guilty. And Marti was so, so close to being able to feel Savannah's heavenly cum in her mouth and sliding down her throat again. All she had to do is replace her fingers with her tongue and Marti could make Savannah cum in her mouth over and over again, the blonde gorging herself on that liquid which she craved so much. However Marti had come this far and she wasn't going to give up on one of her fantasies now.
So using every ounce of willpower she had Marti kissed her way up Savannah's body, only briefly sucking on her hard little nipples and then neck before kissing her lips and then whispering, "Are you ready baby?"
Without hesitation Savannah nodded her head, Marti quickly rewarding her by curling her fingers inside her, the brunette trembling as her G-spot was gently rubbed.
Then Marti pressed the head of the dildo against the entrance to her girlfriend's pussy and Savannah instantly tensed up. Which of course made Marti worried and softly murmured, "You're going to need to relax baby, ok? Just like when we're doing our routines. Don't overthink it, just do it."
Savannah smiled softly. She had already relaxed herself after that initial reaction, but hearing Marti's words had a very calming effect on her, Savannah doing her best to do as Marti suggested as the pressure against her centre gently increased. Soon Savannah felt herself beginning to... open, a little gasp escaping her lips followed by whimpers as her entrance was stretched far beyond the two fingers she had become accustomed too. Then all of a sudden it was sliding inside her, Savannah crying loudly as she felt perhaps the worst pain of her entire life.
Luckily Marti stayed absolutely still, whispering soft words of encouragement which Savannah couldn't even concentrate on as her body slowly relaxed until the pain faded away and was replaced by a feeling that was... just kind of weird.
About the same time Savannah was finally able to understand Marti again, "You're doing great. I'm so proud of you. That was the worst part of it. I promise. What happens next will be easier, but it won't start feeling really good for a little while yet. But it will, I promise, then it will never be quite this bad again. Now... I think you're ready for more, do you think you can take it for me baby?"
Slowly Savannah nodded.
After briefly biting her lip Marti added, "If it helps, don't think of it as just a dildo. Because it's not. It's me... it's my cock. I'm inside you Savannah. It's not just a piece of plastic, it's me. I just took your cherry, and now I'm going to gently guide you into womanhood. I'm going to make you a woman. My woman. And I'm going to do it with as much love and gentleness as I can, because I love you Savannah and what I want more than anything else in the world is to make you feel good, and that's what I'm going to do, ok? I'm going to slide my cock into you and make you feel good. Ok?"
Savannah nodded and blushed furiously, unable to believe just how much her mind grabbed onto the idea or how the very thought of it made any uncomfortableness go away completely and absurdly replace it with pleasure. Actual pleasure, just from the idea that it was Marti who was inside her.
Clearly seeing that her words were having an effect Marti smiled and said, "Good... now please relax baby. I'm... I'm going to push a little more in... ok?"
Savannah bit her lip but nodded, Marti then ever so slowly pushing forwards, sliding an inch of strap on into Savannah's love hole before stopping to give her a chance to relax. Marti repeated this process over and over again, the dildo quickly reaching places inside Savannah which had never been touched before and making those places stretch widely apart. It was... well, it was definitely uncomfortable and initially painful, but it was also kind of thrilling and there were dull sensations which Savannah couldn't decide if they were pleasure or simply a promise of pleasure to come.
Throughout this long, slow process what really kept Savannah going was Marti. The way the other girl looked at Savannah, whispered soft words of encouragement to her, and gently stroked her body were all very comforting. But the thought that constantly repeated in Savannah's head was that this was Marti who was inside of her right now, filling her in a way she'd never been filled before, the girl she loved more than anything reaching into the very depths of her core until it felt like she was touching her soul. It was that more than anything else which gave Savannah pleasure through this process, and made her not just want to see it to it's completion but feel as though she needed too. Like... like she needed to know what it would be like to have Marti as deep inside her as she could go.
Eventually Savannah got her wish, Marti's centre coming to press gently against hers in a way it had done many times before, only this time the blonde's sex was covered with the harness and the brunette's sex was impaled completely by a 8 inch dildo... all 8 inches of Marti's cock deep inside Savannah's womanhood.
I'm so proud of you baby." Marti whispered happily, "It's all the way inside you. You took every inch."
Shaking her head and blushing slightly Savannah found herself murmuring, "I... I took you inside me. All the way. Every inch of you."
Marti grinned softly, "Yes you did. You... I... oh Savannah."
With that Marti leaned down and kissed the girl she loved more than anything in the world, the girl in question happily responding in a gentle and loving kiss which only increased in intensity and passion over the course of several long seconds. Then Marti broke the kiss and stared down into the eyes of her lover only to find that words still failed her. Not that she truly needed words right now, or anything else for that matter other than Savannah Monroe laying beneath her.
For a few long seconds Marti just savoured this moment and the beauty of the girl underneath her. Then ever so slowly she pulled a few inches of her strap on out of Savannah's sex, the cheerleader captain letting out a soft gasp as those few inches left her body. Seconds later Savannah was letting out another soft gasp followed by a moan as Marti pushed the dildo all the way back inside her, the blonde beginning to slowly thrust in and out, at first giving the brunette a few seconds in between each thrust and then eventually establishing a steady rhythm.
The whole time Marti was very careful to listen out for signs of pain or discomfort. She heard a few at first but they were drowned out by moans, cries and whimpers of pleasure so Marti cautiously continued, the sounds of pain and discomfort quickly disappearing and being replaced by various sounds of pure pleasure. Of course Marti continued listening out very carefully but as the curly haired blonde really found her groove Savannah only became more verbally positive.
As if out to prove that point Savannah cried out, "Oh Marti, oh please, mmmmmm more, harder, oh gosh! Marti! Oh it, mmmmmm, it feels so good! So big. You're so big Marti! Mmmmm, you feel so good inside me! Oh Marti please, more, harder, please, oh please... fuck me! Oh gosh!"
Marti smiled as she recognised Savannah's attempts to stroke her ego to get what she wanted, something the good little Christian girl had proven not to be above, although before it had always been playful and/or trivial while now Savannah seemed so much more... needy. Like she desperately wanted this, proven further by the fact that she dropped an F-bomb for maybe the first time ever as far as Marti could recall. Of course knowing how badly Savannah wanted this only fuelled Marti's desire to fuck this beautiful girl and give her exactly what she wanted.
Savannah still wasn't entirely comfortable with using bad words, and dropping an F-bomb had made her blush like never before. But... there was a certain thrill to that. Or maybe the thrill was created by the fact that she was literally begging Marti for more, or maybe it was a combination of the two, both things definitely making her uncomfortable and embarrassed while at the same time they poured gasoline on her body which already felt like it was on fire.
More gasoline was poured on when Marti increased the speed and the strength behind her thrusts, gently at first of course but as Savannah continued writhing and moaning underneath her it wasn't long before the blonde seemed to be pounding her pussy as hard as she could... and Savannah loved every moment of it. Part of Savannah had been afraid that the earlier pain would come back when Marti increased the speed and the strength of the thrusts but instead there was just a dull ache she was barely aware of thanks to the intense ecstasy she was now feeling.
After a while Savannah's body seemed to go into business for itself, Savannah's hands clawing at Marti's back while her legs pulled the other girl into her in a almost desperate attempt to make the thrusting even harder than it was, Marti obliging by somehow speeding up again, all the while Savannah whimpered, "Marti! Oh Marti! Oh gosh! Oh gosh! Oh please Marti... Marti please more, harder, fuck me! Oh Marti please fuck me! Make me a woman! Your woman! Make me your woman Marti, fuck me and make me a woman! Oh Marti! Fuck me with your cock Marti! Fuck me fuck me fuck me fuck me fuuuuccccckkkkk meeeee!"
It wasn't long before Savannah became completely incoherent, and after that the intense ecstasy she had been feeling became something almost indescribable. Because sure, Savannah had cum before, many times whenever she was with Marti, but this was different. Not necessarily better, just... more intense. Like... every time Marti made her cum Savannah felt like the beautiful blonde was reaching into her soul and gently caressing it, but now she was reaching so much deeper than before, places inside Savannah's body orgasming which had never orgasmed before. And it was so wonderful it seemed like a miracle Savannah was even able to stay conscious.
Given the way Savannah's fingers were clawing her back Marti was very grateful that the two of them had short nails for, well, practical reasons. Of course even if Savannah had been tearing her back to ribbons Marti didn't see how she could complain, not when she could literally feel the intensity of the pleasure she was making her girlfriend feel through that touch. She could also feel it in the way Savannah's body was trembling beneath hers, and the intensity in her captain's eyes.
Marti felt she could stare into those beautiful brown eyes forever, especially when they were filled with such intense pleasure and love. Sadly that wasn't an option because while it was a long-standing tradition for the two cheerleaders to stare into each other's eyes for as long as they could whenever they were face to face during sex the fact was that certain orgasms were so distracting that one or both of them couldn't help but break eye contact. Sometimes it was a simple fluttering of the eyelids, other times their eyes rolled into the back of their heads, and occasionally they just needed to squeeze their eyes shut as the pleasure washed over them. Savannah went through each one has Marti fucked her to orgasm after orgasm.
Part of Marti had worried that that's what this had become, fucking. It was supposed to be lovemaking, Marti giving Savannah the first time she deserved. It was a worry that didn't go away, but Marti was at least able to console herself with the idea that she was only thrusting so hard now because she wanted to make Savannah's first time as good as it could possibly be, and it definitely seemed like hard and intense orgasms should be a part of that. Besides, no matter how hard sex between them became, no matter what speed Marti thrusted her tongue and fingers inside Savannah in the past, she loved this girl with every fibre of her being.
Wanting to make that clear Marti whispered into Savannah's ear, "I love you Savannah. I love you so much. You're so beautiful, and amazing, and special. Please cum for me. Cum on my cock!"
Of course Marti's word somewhat backfired as while Savannah definitely came Marti's own body became almost overwhelmed by a climax. Honestly the blonde was shocked about how intense her orgasm was. Because sure, there was a constant rubbing against her clit, and she had the love of her life writhing underneath her, and she was able to look at the ecstasy she was giving Savannah and... ok, so maybe it shouldn't have been such a surprise.
Shortly after her first orgasm Marti became an animal pounding into her mate with everything she had, and while she still tried to listen out for a cry of pain or anything that would indicate Savannah wanted her to stop she also became so lost she wasn't sure she could have heard it or not.
Luckily Savannah gave no such sign, the brunette only screaming in pleasure until finally the blonde ran out of steam and collapsed in a sweaty heap on top of her lover.
A few long minutes passed, then Marti slowly pushed herself upwards, removing the strap-on from first Savannah's pussy, then her own hips before placing it on the nightstand. Then she blew out the candles and stumbled into bed with her roomie. As Savannah already seemed to be unconscious Marti pulled her into her arms, kissed her forehead, and without a word drifted off to sleep.
