Chapter 6

Frank sucked in his breath as he stood, not quite believing his fantasy dream had come true just when he had given up on it. In fact, when he first saw Katie in his bed the previous night he was overcome by a sense of loss and regret and now, a little more than twenty-four hours later, here he was about to go to bed with her (again).

They turned out the lights and went upstairs, quietly checking on the two sleeping kids before going into Frank's bedroom, Katie closing the door behind her before giving Frank an affectionate kiss on the cheek.

"I want to be here with you," she said. "While we have the chance to be ourselves before our Moms get involved again."

"Okay," he agreed.

She pulled down the covers of the bed. "Our sex from last night is still here," she smiled.

Frank nodded proudly.

"I'm sorry we weren't each other's firsts," Katie sighed. "We were supposed to be."

"We're together now," Frank replied. "That's all I care about."

Katie tugged her sweat pants down her legs and kicked them away but she left on her wool socks. She pulled off her sweatshirt over her head, unsnapped her bra and let it fall to the floor, revealing her wonderful breasts for him to see again before she pushed her panties down her legs and stepped naked (except for the socks) to him, smiling with a seductive smile.

Frank kissed her and wrapped his arms around her, holding her close. They stood in the center of the room like that for the longest moment and Frank caught her image in the mirror on the far wall. He couldn't believe he was hugging a naked Katie.

"Get undressed," she whispered, stepping back and waiting for him.

Frank nodded and gladly pulled his sweatshirt off over his head, kicked off his shoes, unbuckled his belt and pulled his jeans down his legs. Katie reached her hands out, placed them on his waist and gently pulled her underwear down his hips until they dropped to the floor. She glanced at his organ and smiled, giving it a little tug to help it become fully erect.

"Katie," Frank sighed. "I'm so happy being with you."

Katie stimulated him with her hand and he began to breathe hard while one of his hands reached up and rubbed her breast. They explored each other's bodies with their hands for several minutes before Katie led him to the bed. She lay down and spread her legs and Frank looked at her with contented pleasure before laying on top of her and kissing her passionately.

"I'm so glad you want me," Katie said, tears forming in her eyes.

Frank slowly slid his penis into her. "I always wanted you," he whispered.

"Thank you," Katie said.

They made quiet and methodical love, Frank gently pushing himself in and out while Katie wrapped her arms around him and cried with joy into his shoulder, lifting her legs up to give him easier access and to help the pleasure sensations. Frank was so lost in the ecstasy and emotions of their togetherness that he didn't realize when she climaxed beneath him.

"Oh Frank," she sobbed.

He kissed her and she told him to keep going so he did until he felt himself tense up and soon he was squirting into her with a heartfelt moan.

"I forgot the condom this time," he realized.

"Oh Frank, I love you," he heard Katie say. "I've always loved you."

He stared into her eyes and she lifted her head up to kiss him.

"It's true," she whispered.

Frank nodded and as he felt himself going soft he rolled off (and out) of her and fell onto his back. Katie rolled onto her side peering at him, moving her hand to his groin to feel their mutual juices and to let him know she wanted to keep being intimate.

"Katie," he whispered.

"I'm showing you how much I care."

Frank reached down and took her hand, moving it away from his groin and sliding it up to her breast with his hand on top of hers. "I care too," he assured her.

Katie moved close to his face and whispered in his ear: "I truly do love you." She kissed him warmly. "This is our night. Our weekend."

"And Monday?" He worried.

"Monday I will be here," she promised, cuddling close to him as he pulled the covers over them.

"Go to sleep," he told her. "Sweet dreams."

"My dream already came true," she replied with a happy sigh.

Katie was already awake when Frank awoke in the morning. She was sitting up in the bed, staring down at him.

"What?" He asked with a grin.

"Nothing," she smiled. "I was just watching you sleep. You looked very peaceful and happy."

"I am," he said.

"Auuggg, I don't want to get up," she complained, falling on top of him.

"Do we have to?" He teased.

"Believe me, I'd stay in bed all day with you if I could," she said openly.

"But we can't?"

"We should be downstairs when the kids get up," she said. "So they won't suspect anything."

"Like what?" He grinned.

"Shut up," she laughed, climbing off of him and getting out of bed, stark naked one last time for him.

He got out of bed too and they looked at each other for a happy moment before reluctantly getting dressed.

It was probably the smell of the bacon and eggs that mustered Ricky and Nancy from their nests.

"What are we going to do today?" Ricky wanted to know when Katie served him his eggs.

"Well, Church of course," Frank answered.

"Church?" Katie said with surprise. "I didn't know you went."

"We have to pray for Daddy's soul," Nancy explained.

"Of course," Frank replied with understanding. "Then maybe after we could go skating," he suggested.

"I don't have any skates," Katie said.

"You can rent them," Frank replied.

"It's been a while since I skated," she revealed.

"Ah, you'll be fine!" Frank laughed.

Katie hadn't been to church much since his parents divorced except for school services - there didn't seem to be any reason after her family fell apart but she certainly understood why the Angers felt it important to attend in the aftermath of their father's death. She felt proud going into the Church with Frank and his siblings, almost like they were their own little family - the entire weekend felt that way in a suddenly comfortable way, especially with Frank sitting on one end of the pew and Katie on the other with Ricky and Nancy in between them.

"Can we can say extra prayers for Daddy," Nancy asked when the Mass was over.

Katie found herself silently praying for Mr. Angers, and for herself as his life appeared to be going in an entirely new direction - and that was a good thing. With the prayers offered, the four left the church and headed for the skating arena at Green College open for public use at certain hours. The three Angers had their skates with them and Katie was able to rent a pair that fit and after learning to find her balance again the foursome had a great time skating around the rink for a few hours, taking breaks to warm in the lobby where there was snack bar for lunch.

"Denise never wanted to go skating with us," Nancy pointed out during one of their rest period.

"Katie's different," Ricky agreed.

"Katie is definitely different," Frank said with a happy grin.

"Do you like her?" Nancy wanted to know.

"Yes, Nancy," Frank answered, smiling at his sister. "I really like her!"

"Good!" Nancy laughed. "I like her too!"

"She's okay," Ricky agreed.

When they had enough of the skating, the foursome headed home. Katie washed her bedding ("To clean the evidence," she giggled to Frank) and by the time Mrs. Angers walked into the house, home from her trip, Katie and Frank were sitting on the couch and the two kids were on the floor watching Ice Age.

"Oh, Frank, you're home!" Mrs. Angers said with surprise.

"Hi, Mom," Frank said, standing. "How was your trip?"

"Frankie and Denise broke up!" Nancy announced happily as she sprang from the floor.

"Oh?" Mrs. Angers replied with surprise.

"Now Katie is his new girlfriend," Ricky revealed.

"Oh?" Mrs. Angers asked, her eyebrows raised.

"I hope that's okay," Frank mumbled.

Mrs. Angers looked at him for a long moment. "I think that's fine, Frank," she answered, giving Katie a knowing smile.
