Bonded (part 3)

The forest was quiet as Marielle walked through the trees, her hand linked with Ricardo's. Though the sun had set, the sweltering heat was still enough to make Marielle sweat, despite the fact that she was only wearing her chemise. The foliage was thick, their surroundings dark but for the small ball of light formed of saidar that hovered in front of the couple as they made their way along the faintly marked trail that led away from the cottage. Along the path, pieces of stonework rose from the undergrowth, covered in moss, the legacy of a kingdom long forgotten, perhaps Farashelle or Manetheren. Their location was remote, north of Andor and west of the Black Hills, near the river Arinelle. Ricardo had told Marielle the story of how he had happened across the cottage during his travels, before he had become an asha'man. The cottage had been abandoned at that stage. Ricardo had repaired it, turning it into a kind of shelter, using it as a retreat from civilisation.

Marielle looked up at Ricardo as she felt his arm slip around her waist. Through the bond she could feel the warmth of his love for her, amidst the rest of his emotions. It was true that the taint on saidin had been removed, but Marielle could sense that Ricardo still carried the pain of his past. Channeling came so naturally to her, she could only imagine what it would have been like to be a male channeler before saidin was cleansed, forced to endure the Dark One's taint in order to wield the One Power, the threat of madness ever present. Even now, Marielle had noticed that Ricardo still had nightmares occasionally, although they seemed to be lessening.

The sound of running water indicated that they were nearly at their destination. Soon enough, a clearing in the trees appeared, revealing a pool of water. Ricardo pulled Marielle close to him, her breasts pressing against the solid mass of his chest as he kissed her. His kiss was slow and tender, deepening as his lips lingered on hers. Marielle's stomach quickened as Ricardo held her in his embrace, their proximity allowing her to feel Ricardo's body respond in kind. Taking a pace back, Marielle pulled her chemise over her head, sensing Ricardo's desire ignite as she turned around and stepped naked into the pond, immersing herself in the water before returning to face him, the pool's surface just above her waist as she stood.

Now coated with water, Marielle's nipples stiffened with the cooling effect of the evening breeze. As she watched Ricardo undress, it rapidly became clear that he was very nicely stiffened at this point as well, a fact that became the focus of Marielle's attention as he joined her in the forest pool ...
