Chapter 5

Coop and I never brought beach girls back to the house. It was only as adults - with Alyson and Katie - that we were able to enjoy female companionship at the beach house. I thought about that as I made love to Yvonne, realizing that her parents were just above us and wondering if they could hear anything even though we were making little noise as we gently rocked each other on the bed.

It had been a while since I had done this but I was able to last and I wanted my magic moment with Yvonne to go on forever but soon she was moaning into my mouth as we kissed to help muzzle the sounds of our excitement and I felt her body shudder as she reached her orgasm and while I could have kept going I was satisfied knowing that I had satisfied her so I pulled out and lay down beside her, wrapping my arms around her waist while kissing her cheek, both of us covered in sweat despite the coolness of the cellar.

"That was wonderful," Yvonne said happily.

"You're wonderful."

"I was pretending I was eighteen," she revealed. "That Richie is sleeping up in the loft bedroom upstairs. We sneaked down here after everybody went to bed and we fucked the way you wanted to fuck those beach girls."

"You really wanted to back then?"

"Secretly," she confessed. "But I never could or would. I was so stupid."

"You weren't stupid," I said, kissing her on the chin.

"It would have been fantastic if it had been like this back then."

"You still would have gone to Wellesley."

"Probably," she admitted. "But I would have come back." She rolled over on her side and studied me. "Would you have waited for me?"

"Yes," I whispered.

"What about that girl?" She worried.

"Katie?" I asked. "What about the guy you married?"

"I would have married you," she said. "Came back here after college and joined the family business with you, Dad and Richie."

"How come you didn't?"

"I didn't think I belonged," she said. "Not until Richie died and I figured out the truth."

She maneuvered herself so her head was resting on my chest.

"I wish..." She started to say but I put my finger to her lips to stop her.

"Shhh," I said. "It doesn't matter now."

I heard her suck in her breath. "You liked Helen better," she dared to say.

"Helen wasn't afraid to hang out with us," I pointed out. "I knew her more. Saw her more." I kissed Yvonne's forehead. "Please be happy," I said.

"I am," she said softly. "Now, maybe even for the first time in my life. I'm glad I finally found the courage and I want to believe that this is finally real."

"It's real," I confirmed.

"I wish I was different back then," Yvonne sighed. "So many wasted years."

"This is us now," I reminded her.

"Everybody already adores you," Yvonne said. "That makes this so much easier. They all thought Dylan was a dud and they were right."

"I can't replace your brother, you know," I carefully warned.

Yvonne lifted her head off my chest and stared into my eyes. "I wouldn't want you to," she said.

"Okay," I said. "So what happens now?"

"Tomorrow we celebrate Richie's birthday as a family," she answered. "Then you go back to Maine and quit your job, come back to Greenville where you belong, move back into your old room, and get back to work in the warehouse."

"Just like that?" I quizzed.

"Just like that," she confirmed. "You're an honorary Cooper, after all."

"And us?" I inquired. "Am I supposed to make love to a member of my honorary family?"

She laughed. "Well, if you love me."

"I love you," I said.

"Not as a sister?" She needed to know.

"Not as a sister," I said.

"I'm sorry I cut you out of my life for all those years," Yvonne sighed. But I'm ready now to feel what I always felt for you but wouldn't allow to happen."

She was propped up looking to my eyes so I moved my head in and kissed her. "You're the one for me," I said, breaking our kiss.

"Are you sure?" She tested.

Yes, I'm sure."

Yvonne closed her eyes for a moment and smiled and when she opened them again I put both my hands on her cheeks and warmly kissed her on the mouth.

"I always hoped for this," she said when we finished the kiss. "I didn't know I was wanting this from the moment Richie brought you home that first time but it's true."

"Don't worry, it was worth the wait," I assured her, pulling her close and kissing her again. "I'm honored."

"Make love to me again," she whispered. "Cum inside me this time." She sat up and mounted me, looking down at me with a wry smile as I felt myself slip inside of her.

"I'm honored," I said again.

"And I'm the Big Y," Yvonne replied.
