Once And Again: Jessie And Katie Part 2 - After The First Time (no sex)
by The Vert Man ([email protected])

Grace was trying her best to concentrate on the book she was reading. But
every little thing kept distracting her, every time she got interested in it.
First it was the strange sounds coming from the attic,and before she could
figure that out, Zoey started blaring her music.Finally as she adapted to all
the little annoyance's, someone came to the door. Throwing the book down in
the chair and stomping towards the door, Grace noticed a familiar face.

"Hey" Grace said opening the door, "Sarah right?"

"Yeh" The girl said smilng weakly, "I know I'm the last person you probabely
expected to see."

"UM....yeh just about" Grace responded, "why are you here?"

"Well I wanted to talk to Jessie, her Mom said she was here" Sarah responded,
looking more uncomfortable with every passing second, "It's really

"Oh it is?" Grace asked looking Sarah right in the face.

"Yeh" Sarah said realizing this was gonna be harder than she thought. After
a long pause Sarah finally went on, "Look Grace I know what you probabely
think of me after what happened between me and Jessie over Katie. So you have
a right to hate me."

"You damn right I do" Grace said growing a little pissed," and if I had been

"I'm sorry, I'm really sorry" Sarah said cutting Grace off in mid-sentence,"
that's what I wanted to say and I wanted Jessie to hear me say that. Not that
it's worth anything."

"Oh..." Grace mumbled in response not sure what to say now as Sarah stood
their in the door way looking like she had just lost her best friend.

"So can you ask her to if we can talk?" Sarah asked looking Grace in the
eyes, "if she doesn't want to I'll understand."

"UMMM Yeh I'll ask" Grace said,"you wanna come in?"

"Thank you Grace, thank you so much" Sarah responded, stepping through the

"You know what, on second thought Sarah this might be a bad idea" Grace
replied after remembering Katie was over.

"Grace please I promise it won't take long." Sarah said taking Grace's hand
in hers for a moment and pleading with her.

"No it's not what you think" Grace said pulling her hand away, "Katie's here,
so maybe you might wanna come back tommorrow or just see her at school."

"Ohhh ok" Sarah replied, obviously suprised by that bit of information.

"So if you wanna come back later" Grace offered, "It might be better."

Sarah appeared to be deep in thought as she considered what to do, then came
to a dicision as she said, "No I think it's best if I do it now. I can't live
with the way I acted, it's killing me." Grace could see the tears coming to
her eyes as the emotion of the moment just over took her.

"Are you ok?" Grace asked reaching for Sarah's shoulder, "here sit down."

"It's just me being a baby" Sarah said fighting the tears and wiping her eyes
as she took a seat in the chair, "I knew I would do this.I was hoping I could
get through this without crying."

"Hey I do the same thing,you know get over emotional about the simplest
things." Grace said smiling. Sarah seem to brighten her outlook a little at
that comment.

"Yeh but I bet you never acted like a spoiled brat when you couldn't get
what you wanted." Sarah said trying to fake a laugh.

"You mean Katie?" Grace asked a little confused.

"Yeh" Sarah replied,at the same moment her eyes began to tear up again, "I
hate myself for being like that. I couldn't just let her go and wish her the
best, I had to pull something stupid like that." Sarah said continuing on and
lowering her head to her hands. "Grace I know you don't believe me, but I
truly am sorry."

"Yeh I can see that" Grace said for the first time realizing the depth of
the hurt, Sarah was going through and wanting to help, but not knowing
exactly how."Here" Grace said handing her a hankercheif to dry her eyes.

"Thanks Grace" Sarah said just then noticing the book on the table, "hey you
had to read that too?"

"Yeh" Grace said picking it up and flipping to the page she was attempting
to, "I was trying to, but in this house if you want quite, you need to be

"I can hear why" Sarah said referring to the loud music coming from Zoey's
room, "So you think I can see Jessie?" Sarah asked smiling at Grace and
standing up.

"Sure if your sure this is what you wanna do" Grace asked walking by Sarah
and feeling her hand being taken again.

"Thank you" Sarah said looking Grace in the eyes and trying her best to
muster a smile,and letting the moment linger in the air for a few seconds
as both stared into the other's eyes. Until Grace replied "no problem" and
slowly turned to walk away pulling Sarah behind her, Sarah followed suddenly
giggling at the moment.

"Jessie's room is in the attic" Grace said as Sarah followed her up the
stairs and making a quick stop in Zoey's room to tell her to turn the music
down. Sarah looked back at Grace one more time and then disappeared up the
stairs as Grace came out of Zoey's room.

Meanwhile in the attic.........

"Oh Jessie that is so good" Katie moaned needing her lover's attention so

"OH MY GOD" A voice said from across the room, as both Katie and Jessie
jumped apart. Looking to see who it was. Jessie instinctively pulled the
covers over her and Katie and her heart nearly stopped when she heard
what Katie said next.

"SARAH!" Katie said with the sound of complete shock in her voice.

"OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD" Sarah kept repeating to herself. Before turning
abruptly and running back down the stairs. Where she was met by a startled
Grace at the bottom.

"What's going on?" Grace asked as Sarah pushed by her and ran for the stairs,
"I heard the screaming"

"Who was that" Jessie asked Katie as she slipped back into her robe.

"Sarah I think" Katie responded, while putting her shirt on as quickly as
humanly possibly.

"Sarah" Jessie asked obviously confused, "what the hell was she doing here."

"Well don't look at me" Katie said feeling like Jessie was accusing her, "how
would I know."

"JESSIE, KATIE" Grace screamed,dashing up the stairs.Thinking by Sarah's
reaction that something horrible had happened. She arrived in the attic as
all three met at the stairs, "Are you guys ok," Grace asked seeing now that
everything was fine. "What was wrong with Sarah" Grace asked looking at
Katie and Jessie with a confused look on her face.

"What the hell was she doing here" Jessie demanded of Grace.

"She wanted to apologize to you" Grace told Jessie.

"So you just told her to come on up?" Jessie said,with her fists clinched at
her side,"don't I have any rights in this house? Didn't you bother to think
that just maybe we might want some privacy?"

"For what?" Grace asked,"and did you ever think to use the lock on the door?"

"I shouldn't have to" Jessie said her voice rising fast,"you never respect
my privacy."

"Jessie I better go and find her" Katie said pushing between Grace and Jessie
and running down the stairs.

"Why?" Jessie asked.

"She might do something stupid and I can't let that happen" Katie tryed to

"What the hell is going on here" Grace asked as Jessie followed after Katie
and Grace followed both of them, "Jessie answer me."

Reaching the first floor, the door was open and Sarah was nowhere in sight.
Katie grabbed her coat and before anyone could say anything, she first
glanced at Grace, before she kissed Jessie and whispered "I love you,"
before turning and running out the door.

"I love you too" Jessie mumbled as she watched Katie leave and wondered to
herself what had just happened. For a long time, neither Jessie or Grace said
anything as Jessie leaned against the back of the door and Grace tryed to
digest everything that had just happened and tryed to figure out what made
Sarah scream like that. Then she came back to the moment her and Sarah had
shared in the hallway and it gave her a strange feeling. Shaking the thought,
she looked back at Jessie who was now stairing off into space.

"What just happened here?" Jessie finally asked.

"I think your the one that needs to answer that" Grace said taking Jessie's
hand and guiding her to the living room. Sitting down on the chair, Jessie
again looked completely lost in thought. So Grace fearing another screaming
match, decided to let it rest for now. Going back to her book and every so
often looking up to sneak a peak at Jessie. For the better part of the next
hour Jessie sat and thought, not making much of a sound. Finally Grace
couldn't take it any longer and decided to try again.

"Jessie" Grace said softly, trying to get her attention, "you ok?"

"Yeh" Jessie said, smiling, "just thinking."

"About what" Grace asked and after a momentry delay going on,"Katie?"

"Is it that obvious?" Jessie replied, her smile spreading.

"It was after that kiss" Grace said,trying to work the conversation where
she wanted it to go, without upsetting Jessie, "I thought you guys where...
you know. But I didn't think it was this far along."

"I love her Grace" Jessie said looking at her step-sister.

"I can see that" Grace said honestly.

Another long moment of silence followed as Grace once again let her mind
drift and the image of Sarah came into her head, this time the one of her
crying and how her heart must have been broken when she found out about
Jessie and Katie.

"Jessie" Grace said breaking the silence again, "can you tell me something?"

"Sure" Jessie replied.

"In the attic...." Grace started tentatively.

"You think she'll be back tonight?" Jessie asked.

"Who?" Grace asked trying to remain patient,"Katie?"

"Yeh I mean she left so quick I was hoping she would call or something and
let me know what happened" Jessie said, "ahhhhh guess she had more important
things to do."

"Jessie are you crazy?" Grace asked putting her book down and moving to the
end of the couch, "She is so into you. There's no way she could think of
anything else and you know what I mean."

"You really think so" Jessie asked springing a huge smile.

"Yes and there's no doubt in my mind after that kiss" Grace continued on,
"I'd give anything for a kiss like that." Grace said thinking about her
comment and hurriedly continuing om again, "not that I have anyone in mind
for something like that. But still I would."

"OOOHHHH sure" Jessie said in an drawn out manner, "I'll bet your just dying
to jump someone's bones. So who is it?"

"Jessie" Grace said in mock horror,"no one I swear."

"UH huh sure, let me see, who could it be?" Jessie said counting the people
on her hand until she finally came to one she knew was true, "Mr. Dimitri".
The look of shock and horror on Grace's face was priceless Jessie thought as
she rose from the end of the couch and grabbing a pillow started coming
towards Jessie.

"OK sis now your gonna get it and good" Grace said as she swung the pillow
at Jessie who jumped up and tryed to run before Grace caught her and pinned
her down on the couch, "now take it back,take it back right now."

"NO YOU LOVE HIM,YOU WANT HIS BODY." Jessie screamed through her giggling and
fighting to get loose, "I'll bet you tryed to rip his clothes off."

"Yeh at least I'm not in love with a girl" Grace said as she started tickling
Jessie unmercifully, trying to make her give in.

"No your in love with a guy old enough to be your father" Jessie giggled
barely able to keep her breath.

"It's not true" Grace said getting tickled herself and beginning to laugh,
"I don't want his body,anymore at least."

Grace finally gave up on Jessie and rolled off as they both sat there for a
minute trying to catch their breath. Until Grace looked over at Jessie and
noticed something, Jessie wasn't wearing anything under her robe.

Grace found herself staring for a brief second at Jessie's body before she
could regain control of her senses and look away. Jessie realized what was
happening as Grace looked away and quickly moved her robe closed again. She
moved back to the chair and tryed to change the subject and let the moment
pass. But Grace's mind was working overtime and she was putting the pieces
of the Sarah screaming mystery together.

"Jessie what exactly are you wearing under your robe?" Grace asked.

"None of your business" Jessie said giggling, "god your such a complete

"Jessie will you please be serious for a second" Grace said,trying to keep a
straight face, "now what are you trying to hide."

"Nothing why?" Jessie asked confused.

"Well your not wearing anything under that robe and Sarah screamed like she
saw you naked or something else very embarrassing" Grace said standing up,
"So what is the story Jessie?"

"You mean when Sarah walked in" Jessie asked trying to delay the inevitable.

"No tell me about your first day of school" Grace said sarcasticly before
going on, "yes I mean the bedroom."

Just then the door flew open and Rick and Lily came in from their date,
trying to be quite until they noticed Grace and Jessie in the living room.
"Hey guys" Rick said.

"Hey Daddy" Jessie said jumping up from the chair and hugging Rick, while
Lily closed the door and got a worried look on her face as she caught the
expression on Grace's face.

"Is something wrong?" Lily asked,"you guys are up awful late."

"NO" Jessie said jumping to answer the question,"we where just talking and
sorta lost track of time, right Grace."

"Uh yeh....right" Grace said trying to force herself to smile and standing
up, "Jessie was just telling me about her and Katie's game of Clue."

"Doesn't sound very exciting" Lily said.

"Oh but it was Mom" Grace said moving behind Jessie and putting her arms
around Jessie's neck like a real big sister, "Jessie was just getting to the
good part, wheren't you?"

"It is so good to see you guys getting along for a change" Lily said playing
the mother part, that she does so well.

"Well you can finish your story tommorrow Jessie it's past time for you to
be in bed" Rick said pulling Jessie free from Grace and walking towards the
stairs with Lily, when Jessie looked back and mouthed "tell you later."

"Grace" Lily said from the bottom of the stairs,"get to bed soon ok."

"Sure Mom" Grace replied.

Grace watched as Jessie disappeared up the stairs to her room and looked
around for the book she was reading. Thinking about all that had happened,
she couldn't shake the thought of what exactly went on in the attic and
what made Sarah scream. Grace thought for a long time and tryed to put the
pieces together, but in the end she admitted she wouldn't know anything
for sure until she could talk to Jessie alone, again. Letting her mind
wonder again, Sarah came back to her head and she began to worry about
what might have happened to her after she left. Laying their thinking,
Grace evenually drifted off to sleep.

Waking up as daylight began to break, Grace realized she had fallen asleep
on the couch. Deciding to head up to bed, she made a quick detour over to
double check the lock on the door.

"What the hell" Grace said as she looked out the glass in the front door and
was shocked at what she saw....
