A couple of months ago, my friend Jake Rivers put out a call for writers to participate in a story invitational based on three classic songs by Marty Robbins: "El Paso," "Feleena" and "El Paso City."
This is a follow-up on to our first invitational in the fall of 2006 with entries based on the Statler Brother's song, "This Bed of Rose's." If there is continuing support we might make this a regular semi-annual event
This is my interpretation of the El Paso saga.
EL PASO, 2007
It was one of those crystal-clear desert days in mid-spring, not a cloud to be seen in any direction as far as the eye could see.
And I could see an awfully long way, seeing as how I was cruising at 30,000 feet in the sleek LearJet that my company uses for business trips. I was on my way, as I often am, from Houston to Los Angeles to meet with our main vendor on some new lines.
My family owns a successful drilling company based in Houston, and I'm head of the division that's responsible for buying and selling drilling equipment.
Our main thrust is petroleum, and we have oil drilling rigs all over the world, but we also drill for natural gas and even water in some especially arid areas. If it involves boring into the ground for whatever Mother Nature has produced down there, we're the best there is.
Over the years, my flight route has taken me over the acres and acres of dusty hills and empty deserts that make up West Texas and New Mexico. As my daddy used to say, there ain't much out there, but there's a lot of it.
On a day like this, I could see all the way to the ground, and I picked out the Rio Grande, flowing slow and muddy through the brown-clad landscape.
As I did, I felt it again, the strong pull, like some force was trying to drag me into something I couldn't understand, something to do with a long-buried murder that was a whispered part of my family lore.
My name is Ray Temple, and my roots are in the country over which I was flying, the area just west of Midland-Odessa in the Permian Basin. My people had been ranchers until oil was discovered on land my great-grandfather owned along the Pecos River.
He didn't quite hit it as rich as some other families that cashed in on West Texas oil, but he did pretty well and he was smart enough to plow his fortune into drilling.
But long before oil was discovered on family property, there was an incident involving some member of the family, a cousin or nephew or some such.
Supposedly, he had been killed in El Paso by a drifter in a jealous rage, and the man's friends and family members — my ancestors — chased the drifter down and killed him in retaliation. It sounded like a brutal little love triangle, settled Old West fashion.
When I was a kid, I used to love stories about the Old West — books, movies and television shows — and I immersed myself in the culture.
I read everything Louis L'Amour ever wrote, but disdained the likes of Zane Grey and Max Brand. Their Old West was the stylized, fictional West of pearl-button shirts and fancy boots made of patent leather; pretty to look at, but not the real deal.
L'Amour, though, told about the real West. His locales were right on the money, and so was the attitude. Oh, the good guys usually won in his novels, but they often paid a high price in the process.
I remember one of his Sackett tales, where Tell Sackett avenged himself against a wealthy rancher who had ruined his life. The man had ambushed Tell, shot him and left him for dead, stolen his new bride, then raped and killed her. You didn't find that sort of thing in Zane Grey.
It was a simpler time, with a simple code of honor; someone does you wrong, you right that wrong yourself, and life goes on.
As I watched the meandering river, and saw the sprawl of modern El Paso begin to take shape far below, I found myself thinking about that incident. I wondered how and why it affected me, only that it did somehow, some way.
It was almost like I was reincarnated as one of the principals, the wronged lover or the dashing stranger.
It was giving me a headache, so I leaned my seat back and closed my eyes just for a second, it seemed. Instead of rest and a welcome sleep, though, I found myself falling into an abyss, like I was uprooted from reality.
I saw in my mind clear as day, the dusty streets and weathered buildings of the Old West, and somehow I realized that I was seeing a glimpse into the past, to the old West Texas town of El Paso...
I came around to find myself in a dusty saloon, seated at a rough wooden table on a searing hot Texas day. I looked down at myself and saw I was still wearing my business suit, only now I was sweating to beat the band.
What the fuck was going on here? How did I get here out of a jet airplane streaking 30,000 feet in the sky?
Suddenly, I heard the sound of boots coming down the wooden staircase, boots that had to have a man filling them.
I stared at the apparition that approached my table, then sat down in a chair across from me. He sat a dusty bottle of whisky on the table, and I noticed for the first time that two glasses sat on the table, one in front of each of us.
The man was fairly tall and lanky, handsome, but with a hard look to his eyes. He was dressed after the fashion of the Old West: dungarees, worn boots, plain cotton shirt covered by a leather vest, beat-up hat and a holster with a shiny revolver inside.
Still not saying a word, he pulled the cork out of the bottle, poured some of the amber liquor into each glass, then replaced the cork and picked up his glass. He seemed to be waiting for me to pick mine up, so I did. He nodded to me and we each drank.
Being a true-blue Texan, I know my way around liquor, but the stuff that came out of that bottle was serious business indeed. It was tart and had a kick like moonshine, which I had tasted a few times during my college days at SMU.
"I suppose yer wonderin' why you been brought here," the man spoke finally.
"Pretty vivid dream, I have to say," I said, trying to keep the hysteria out of my voice.
"Ain't no dream," the man said. "You been brought here so's you can hear a story. See, my name's Martin Claymore, but folks always knew me as Marty."
"Pleased to meet you... I think," I said. "I'm Ray, Ray Temple."
"I know who you are," Marty said. "It was your'n that put me out there in boot hill back around 1875. Course, that was after I killed their buddy. But he was fuckin' around with the wrong woman and he drew on me, or at least he started to. Shoulda never done that. I been wanderin' around in purgatory ever since. Now, I got me one chance to get outta here, and that's to make amends, settle the score with you Temples. Ain't somethin' I like doin'. Far's I'm concerned, all you pissants can go rot in hell."
Just then a look of intense pain crossed the man's face, and he quickly uncorked the bottle, poured another glassful and downed it quickly.
Then he sat back and told a sad tale of love, betrayal and revenge.
EL PASO, 1875
Folks in El Paso always said that Feleena Menendez was trouble, but they never said it where Marty Claymore could hear. Marty was a lanky Scotsman who didn't say much unless he was riled, then he could be a terror.
At the time, nobody knew much about Marty's background, only that he arrived with some cattle train and stayed on. He never talked much about himself or where he came from.
It was only later, after it was all over, that it was learned that he was originally from South Carolina, from the high country, and that he had fought for the South in the War Between the States, as a scout for Jeb Stuart's cavalry regiment.
As a youngster, he'd developed a dead eye with a rifle and the skills of an accomplished outdoorsman. After the war, he'd gone west, and had spent some time as a civilian scout for Custer.
Since leaving Custer, Marty had done a series of odd jobs, working on cattle drives or on a railroad gang. He was never too proud to do any kind of honest work, and during his short time in El Paso he'd worked at the livery, taking care of horses, with which he had a natural affinity.
He was handsome in a rustic fashion, with a head full of red hair and a thick moustache. He was a little taller than average and lean, with long legs slightly bowed from so many years in the saddle.
About the second or third night he was in El Paso, he wandered into Rosa's Cantina and suddenly everything changed.
Rosa's was a Mexican-style tavern on the main drag in El Paso, where most nights a small group of musicians would play the traditional love songs. It was a place where the whores and other women of ill repute plied their trade and where men of all ages went looking for illicit romance.
There had been nothing to distinguish it from dozens of other honky-tonks until about a year earlier, when Feleena Menendez blew into town.
No one was quite sure where she'd come from originally, but she came to El Paso from Santa Fe, where it was rumored she'd been in the middle of some sort of scandal.
Rosa's was the perfect place for Feleena. She showed up one night in a tight black satin dress that displayed her assets in a most enticing manner. She danced and laughed and flirted with every man there, stirring their lust and inviting the envy of the other women who were there.
She was average in size, but lithe in her figure, with a suppleness that left men weak in the knees. She had full lips, but a narrow nose and two luminous brown eyes set perfectly in her face, capped by a thick mane of shimmering raven hair. Her skin was smooth and fair, suggesting a heritage that was more Spanish than Mexican.
After about a week of men clamoring for her charms — and spending their money on drinks and dances — Rosa knew a good thing when she saw one and quickly hired Feleena to dance.
Rosa's quickly became the place to go in El Paso, and Feleena became the talk of the town. She wasn't exactly a prostitute, but it was common knowledge that if a man was willing to take a little time and spend a little money on her, she was very willing to do anything he wanted.
She would weave her seductive spell as she danced, twirling her skirts and showing just enough cleavage to entice the patrons without actually showing much of anything.
Between dances, she would drink and flirt with the men who had the money, and she had a keen eye for the ones willing to spend it on her.
The first time Marty Claymore went to Rosa's when Feleena was dancing, he was spellbound in a way he'd never been before.
Oh, he was no innocent, not even close. Even before going off to war, he'd had tumbles with the girls from his area. He seemed to have a nose for the ones who were promiscuous and a knack for getting them on their backs.
But Feleena was different. She stirred in him something animalistic, something possessive. He wanted her like he'd never wanted a woman before in his life, and he was willing to do whatever it took to get her for himself, and only himself.
Late that night, in the bed at the boarding house where he was staying, he thought about Feleena and his groin began tingle with the onset of intense arousal.
He thought back to what had up to then been the most exotic, erotic sexual experience of his life, and he seemed to sense that a night with Feleena would match that and more.
Just thinking about it made him hard, and with a sigh, he unbuttoned the fly to his long johns and took himself in hand...
Marty was just 18, and a kid from the country, but he and his fellow soldiers were no longer innocents. They'd seen combat; they had killed and had seen their brothers killed in turn.
The war had hit a lull, as Lincoln pondered what to do about the rebellion that had divided the country. In Charleston, there was a sense of excitement that maybe, just maybe, the Confederacy would survive, that the South would win the war and achieve its independence.
Charleston was where it had all started, and rebel fever ran high, so when Marty and four of his fellow troopers got a couple of days leave, they were welcomed enthusiastically at the brothel where they had gone to get their wicks dipped.
After paying the madam, the soldiers stood in the parlor while the available girls were brought in for display. The whores ranged from quite young to fairly mature, from reed-thin to voluptuous. Marty picked a pretty young blonde named Elizabeth, who was slim and fair, and they retired to one of the upstairs boudoirs.
When she got Marty stripped and on her bed, Elizabeth did a seductive show of shedding her clothes and was gratified to see a healthy cock standing straight and strong, with an angry red crown jutting out of the foreskin.
When she was naked except for her French-style stockings, she leaned over the end of the bed cupping her smallish breasts.
"Well, soldier, what can I give you in appreciation of your service to this fine state?" she drawled.
Marty pondered the question for a few seconds, then he smiled. He wanted something he'd heard some of the other soldiers talking about but had never experienced himself.
"I want you to take me in your mouth," he said.
Elizabeth was a little taken aback by the request, because it wasn't something commonly done in that day. But she had been trained well, and she knew how to do it.
"I suppose so," Elizabeth said. "But first, I need to make sure you're good and clean."
Marty had no problem with that, and he stared as the young whore poured some water from the pitcher on the dresser into her little wash basin.
She took a soft piece of cloth, dipped it in the water, wrung it out, then carefully washed Marty's cock and balls. She even went so far as to clean his anus, even though there was no way she was going to get her mouth anywhere near his asshole.
When she had him cleaned to her satisfaction, she returned the basin to the dresser, then climbed onto the bed. Her hands were softly massaging Marty's raging-hard cock, and she used her index finger to spread a fat dollop of pre-cum all over the crown.
Very carefully, she pulled the foreskin all the way off the head of his cock with one hand, cupped his balls with the other and bent her head down toward his crotch. She swirled her tongue over the slick crown and slowly drew him into her mouth.
Marty groaned as he felt the young whore's soft lips caress his cock, while her tongue circled his shaft. He'd never had sensations like that coursing through his body as Elizabeth began to work her mouth up and down on his iron-hard cock.
She could only take about two-thirds of his length in her mouth, but that was more than enough to send Marty on a trip to ecstasy. He squeezed his eyes shut, willing himself to hold back the pent-up load of cum that threatened to blow the young blonde's head clean off.
Up and down, up and down, Elizabeth brought all of her considerable skills to bear on the teenaged soldier. She happened to glance up at Marty's face at the same moment that he opened his eyes and gazed down at her.
Their eyes met and the sizzle of lust passed between them. Marty was captivated by the combination of innocence and brazenness this whore displayed in her eyes as she sucked vigorously on his turgid meat.
He liked the way her little breasts jiggled and the way her hips swayed as she got her whole body involved in the act of fellatio.
And, in truth, Elizabeth was feeling her arousal begin to climb. There was something wicked, something forbidden about taking this handsome young soldier in her mouth that sent sparks of lust rushing through her body.
Oftentimes, she had to fake it when she entertained a client, but not tonight. She wanted to taste this young man's semen, wanted him to fill her mouth with his seed.
And that moment wasn't far off.
Marty was writhing and jerking on the bed as Elizabeth alternated her pleasure, working him hard at times, then slowing down almost to a stop, bringing him the brink of explosion that pulling him back.
"I need to..." Marty gasped as he felt the agony of imminent climax come upon him, and he thrust his hips upward as if to drive as much of his cock into Elizabeth's mouth as he possibly could.
Elizabeth was ready for it now. She gripped the base of his cock with her hand and jacked him briskly while she sucked him hard, and her efforts quickly had the desired result.
With a strangled groan, Marty's body lurched upward and he felt the rusty sizzle of orgasm as he spewed his life-giving sperm deep in the whore's voracious mouth.
He emptied his calls of everything he'd accumulated over the past months in the field, feeling the catharsis that comes from a gut-wrenching climax.
Elizabeth swallowed quickly the way she'd been taught, as each spurt of thick, tangy cum splattered into her throat.
While her right hand was milking the soldier's cock of every bit of his cream, her left hand was wedged under her body, between her legs as she worked a finger over her little pleasure nub and she was gratified to feel a nice orgasm race through her body.
Marty finally finished coming and fell back on the bed, utterly drained. It had been an experience he would never forget, and one he would repeat several times over the coming months of war, wherever he happened to be.
But he never forgot that first time, with the young blonde whore, and he often replayed the experience over the ensuing years when the lust and loneliness became too much for him to bear.
It would be that way until fate put Feleena in his path.
SANTA FE, 1874
Feleena was in trouble and looking for a change.
Ever since the incident with Claude and his friends a few days earlier, things had not been going well for her. Word of what happened had leaked out and was being whispered from one end of town to the other.
Suddenly, the men who had been happy to squire her around town turned and walked the other way when they approached her on the street, women in town — be they respectable or not — looked at her with disapproval in their eyes.
She needed some place new, some place where she could start fresh, some place where her frenetic dreams of riches and romance could be realized, some place a long way from Claude. some place like El Paso.
The bustling cattle town on the Rio Grande, tucked into the farthest corner of Texas, was alive with promise, where a fortune could be made if one knew who to meet and where to look.
Moreover, El Paso was more free-spirited than staid old Santa Fe, which had been the seat of colonial power in the area under the Spanish, then the northernmost outpost of Mexico and only now was becoming established as the center of government for the New Mexico Territory the Anglos had created from their winnings in the Mexican War.
Feleena had been a naïve 17-year-old when she arrived in Santa Fe a couple of years earlier with hardly anything to her name but her stunning beauty and sensual body.
She'd been born on a stormy, full-moon night when the desert sky was alive with the sound and fury of the lightning and thunder. The wizened old midwife from the nearby town who helped deliver Feleena spoke afterwards of a momentous future for a child born amid such tumult.
She was the first-born child of Juan and Christina Menendez, who managed to eke out a living growing corn and a few other hardy crops, along with a few goats and some sheep.
Juan and Christina had married for love, unusual in their culture, and her family had only accepted her choice of husband when he produced a dowry that left him virtually penniless.
He supplemented the meager yield from his crops by operating a little way station for travelers, and that was how news from the outside world made it to their isolated area. It also provided Feleena with an early stage for honing her flirty ways.
She seemed to have an inbred way of beguiling men, and she practiced her craft with any man who stopped at their little inn. That and the stories Christina told of lavish balls, luxurious gowns and luscious banquets fueled Feleena's restless spirit.
Christina hadn't had that kind of life, because by the time she came of age, the americanos were in power and her family had lost its position of influence. But Christina had heard the tales from her mother and grandmother, and passed them down to her eldest child.
Only later, after Feleena had gone for good, did Christina regret filling her daughter's mind with such fancy dreams.
There were no schools where Feleena grew up, but she was a bright child and she taught herself to read, write and cipher at a fairly early age. She understood that if she was to go anywhere in the world, those skills would be essential.
From the travelers who came their way, she learned to speak English, something else she understood that she needed to do in order to make her way in the world.
It didn't take her long to find a caretaker in Santa Fe. She allowed herself to be seduced by a wealthy banker, who was overjoyed to take her virginity.
Over the next few months she trolled the taverns, and instinctively found the men of means that could keep her in a style she felt she deserved. She was more tease than delivery, but if the men were patient, they could usually get their dicks into her supple body.
She quickly learned the little tricks to bring a man satisfaction without running the risk of getting pregnant. She had learned from her mother the rhythm of her body, the cycle of blood that told her when she was fertile and when she was not.
Things began to change when Claude LeBeau arrived in Santa Fe. Claude was a gambling man from New Orleans, a slim dark-haired man with rakish good looks and devilish eyes. He seemed to mesmerize her, and under his spell she did things she never dreamed she would do.
It was Claude who showed her what true sensual, sexual pleasure was all about. Her pleasure became an important issue for her, something Claude had showed her, and as a result he was able to take her on his terms, rather than hers, and she seemed helpless to do anything about it.
But he went too far on a rainy night a few days earlier.
It had been a slow night at the tavern adjacent to the hotel where Claude was living. He and some of his friends were hanging out playing a few hands of poker, just for something to do.
Unbeknownst to Feleena, who was sitting at the bar alone watching the proceedings with no small amount of boredom, Claude had been bragging to some acquaintances about his hold over the young Mexican beauty, claiming he could get her to do anything.
One of them had made a suggestion, and Claude laughingly said he thought it could be done.
So, after winning a hand of poker, Claude elected to call it a night, or at least so he said. He cast a suggestive eye in Feleena's direction and she smiled her assent.
He walked over to where she was seated, dressed in her finest snug dress, the sleeveless ensemble that scandalized the proper ladies of Santa Fe.
He nuzzled her neck, running his tongue over her skin up to her ear, which he licked in a way that sent goose flesh all over her body.
As he softly used his mouth on her, his hands slid over her hot young body, and one hand lingered over her right breast, the nipple of which stood up in readiness.
"Ah, Claude muy amor, " she purred as the sensual feelings flowed through her body.
"Come, little one," he said in his lilting Creole accent. "Join me, no?"
Feleena leaned in and gave herself over to his soft lips and insistent tongue, thus she didn't see the look he gave the fellows at the card table, or the knowing wink he shared with them.
Once up in his room, Claude lay back on the bed, with his back against the brass headboard, watching as Feleena did a seductive strip show for him.
She already knew how to dance, but Claude had taught her the tricks he'd learned from the whores in New Orleans, the way to stir a man's passion by slowly revealing her body.
With Claude directing her, she was soon naked. This, too, was something Claude had shown her; the sensual pleasure of nudity. She could feel the fire burning hot in her loins as she anticipated a night of passion with her man.
Later, when she thought back about it, she would come to understand that she didn't love him, nor did he love her. But they had a wild sexual attraction that could burn white-hot when they were together. It would be the same when she met Marty Claymore, only more so.
Claude stood up then and walked over to where Feleena was standing nude, fidgeting in her arousal. He took her in his arms and they kissed deeply, ravenously. He inhaled the enticing aroma of the perfume she was wearing, and the clean, fresh smell of her body.
Feleena had always been more fastidious than most about cleanliness, and she bathed every third or fourth day when she had the opportunity, especially when she anticipated that she might spend an evening with a man.
She had bathed that very day, luxuriating in the warm soapy water, knowing that Claude was there, knowing he would undoubtedly want her that night.
Claude had taught her the carnal benefits of being clean, especially between her legs, and she could feel herself getting wet as his hands moved over her body.
"You are beautiful, mon chere, " Claude whispered, as he stepped back and began to carefully remove his clothes. "So very, very beautiful."
When he was naked, he pressed his hard, lean body against hers, sliding his stiff cock between her legs, just enough to raise Feleena's arousal that much higher.
With a sardonic chuckle, he gently maneuvered her onto the bed, on her back, and Feleena spread her legs in wanton anticipation. She knew what was coming, and she had learned to love it.
Sure enough, Claude climbed up on the bed with her, but instead of leading with his cock, he slid down the bed until his face was poised directly over her vagina.
He gazed longingly at the shiny forest of dark curls that framed her crotch, the pouting lips that opened wetly, beckoning him to her pink insides. He reveled in the hot, musky scent of her essence, the aroma of lust that made a beast of him.
Claude slid two fingers into her slick box and began to work them slowly back and forth. As he did, he circled her clit with the tip of his tongue several times and smiled to himself as Feleena writhed on the bed in white-hot passion.
Feleena had learned to love this kind of treatment. She'd never before met a man willing to use his mouth on her private parts, never before knew the exquisite pleasure to be gained from a skilled practitioner of cunnilingus.
As he had in so many other ways, Claude had showed her just how the mouth could be used to please, and she had taken to the concept like a fish in water.
Feleena felt the heat mounting in her body as Claude brought his mouth more fully to bear on her steaming pussy. She clutched her breasts with her hands, lightly pinching her nipples, which were almost aching in their arousal.
Just about the time she arched her back with a powerful orgasm, Claude pulled his mouth away. Feleena whimpered in frustration, but that didn't last more than a few seconds, because he quickly took up position between her legs and pushed his throbbing-hard cock up her flooded canal in one smooth motion.
Feleena squealed in ecstasy as Claude quickly worked his cock at a brisk pace, churning in her liquid cunt with hard, steady strokes. He bent down and took her into his arms, kissing her ravenously as her body convulsed underneath him.
The explosion of pleasure took Feleena's breath away and transported her mind to some distant place of pure pleasure.
Thus she didn't hear the growing murmur from outside the door as Claude's friends gathered, awaiting the signal.
Claude heard, however, and he smirked at what was about to happen. Just the thought of it was enough to send him tumbling over the edge, and with a gasp, he lurched forward and spewed a hard, rocky load of semen deep in Feleena's womb.
Even as she felt the hot splashes of sperm deep in her vagina, Feleena had the distant sense of worry that he didn't pull out, like most of the other men did. She could usually time her bleeding cycle the way her mother had taught her, knowing when she was safe from being impregnated.
But she wasn't sure about the timing on this night. It seemed a little close to the time when she should keep the men from ejaculating inside of her.
Seconds later, though, that was the last thing on her mind. As she was lying back in the slightly dazed afterglow of lust, Claude pulled his wilted pecker from her pussy, walked to the door, opened it and let the room fill with a dozen horny cowboys.
Feleena's reverie was shattered by the whoops of the men as they stared lustfully at her naked, freshly-fucked body.
"She's all yours, gentlemen," Claude said as he fished for his clothes. "Just don't leave any marks on her."
"Claude!" Feleena screamed. "What is this?!"
"I owe these fellows some payback for a favor they did me awhile back," Claude said coldly. "I figured the best way to pay them back was to offer them my little whore. My puta. Don't worry; they aren't going to hurt you, and you'll enjoy it after a bit. I'll be downstairs. See ya..."
Feleena looked in terror at the leering men whose rock-hard cocks surrounded her. Her scream was cut off by a man thrusting a cock into her mouth, while at the same time another man pushed his dick into her dripping pussy. Two more cocks were placed in her hands and the rest stood by watching as they idly stroked their dicks waiting for their turn.
It didn't take long for the first two men to come. Just getting his cock in her prime pussy was almost too much for the first man to follow Claude into Feleena's cunt. He groaned heavily and added his semen to the load Claude had placed there moments earlier.
And the same was true for the first man to push his cock in her mouth. He held her head tightly as he fucked her mouth with his cock, forcing it ever deeper with each stroke. When he shot his load, it almost choked Feleena, and all she could do was swallow his seed.
At first the men went at her two-by-two, and eventually the sensations did, in fact, trigger a surging arousal, a mounting climax, and she went from a terrorized victim into a willing participant.
Claude came back in after awhile and suggested that she had another hole that had never been used, and explained the mechanics of how it should go.
He positioned one man on his back, then he and several other men lifted Feleena bodily and turned her limp, sweat-and-cum-covered body onto her knees.
Feleena seemed to come to some understanding of what she was supposed to do because she grasped the man's dick and fit the head to her sloppy cunt and slid down his pole.
She tried to object when another cock began to root around in her backside, but those objections were smothered by another cock that slammed its way past her lips and into her throat.
She gave a muffled squeal as the man behind her managed to get his cock in her virgin ass and they began to work in unison, filling both holes with hard male meat, as the others looked on in awe.
In spite of her fear and revulsion, the feeling of being so thoroughly filled was like nothing Feleena had ever experienced, and her body responded in a way that would shame her deeply in the morning's light.
Her body was wracked by a series of orgasms that left her completely overwhelmed, and when all three of them exploded to fill each orifice with their hot, creamy cum, it was more than she could stand.
Even after Feleena passed out, however, the fuck frenzy didn't let up. For another two hours, all the men — a dozen, maybe more — used her in all of her cum-filled holes. It went on until every one of them had come at least twice, before Claude finally ushered them out of his room.
The next morning, Feleena had vented her rage at Claude for allowing his friends to use her like that, and his response cut her like a whip.
"They just gave you what you wanted," Claude said. "You're nothing but a Mexican whore with delusions of grandeur. But I proved that you're just another whore who will do whatever I tell you to do. We're going to do this again, real soon, and you're going to like it just like you did last night. You're going to be my whore. Understand?"
Feleena wasn't going to let that happen. She was too proud, too independent to let herself get tied down to the life of a common whore.
She had been frugal with her money and she had a nice nest egg saved back, enough to get her fare for a stagecoach ride to El Paso and enough to live on when she got there, until she could get settled.
So Feleena Menendez quietly packed up her meager belongings, and one day when Claude was out of town, she made her way to the stagecoach office and caught the 3:15 to the West Texas town of El Paso.
EL PASO, 1875
It didn't take long for Feleena to notice the lanky redhead with the bushy moustache. Almost every night, Marty would put on his finest suit, the only one he had, and go to Rosa's to watch Feleena dance.
Something in his eyes made Feleena pause. There was a restlessness, a deep-seated want in those steel-gray eyes that made her shudder, and she saw those eyes when she lay on the bed in the room Rosa had provided for her.
The third night Marty went to Rosa's, he finally worked up the nerve to ask Feleena for a dance. He handed her a couple of bills, the fee she required for a dance. She stuffed the bills into her little clutch, then she began to weave her spell of seduction.
She moved and swirled around him with an animal grace, a sensuality that left Marty spellbound. He stared as she bowed low on a swoop, giving him a tantalizing look at her breasts, and twirled her skirts high, giving him a teasing glance at her bare thighs, with the French stockings secured by a pair of garters.
The music built to a crescendo as she let the sexual abandon sweep her along on a tide of passion. Every man in the place gaped as Feleena danced for the lanky cowboy, danced in a way she rarely did for them.
As the music crested with a final flourish, Feleena did a pirouette and bowed low to her audience, which burst into thunderous applause. Everyone was smiling and laughing at the audacious performance, everyone except Marty, who just stared in naked lust.
Finally shaking himself out of his reverie, Marty motioned for Feleena to come to his table. She hesitated for just a second as she felt a shadow, a premonition perhaps, a small voice telling her to walk away from this man.
But the bond had already been forged. The eyes that had haunted her the past few nights drew her in, so she sat with the tall redhead and drank his tequila. They talked and got to know each other, until it was time for Feleena to dance again.
From that night on, Marty and Feleena were all but inseparable. Most nights, Marty would spend at Rosa's, watching Feleena dance, then they would share a drink or two, then she would dance again.
Other men would buy dances, but even then her eyes were only on the lanky cowboy.
A week after their first encounter, Feleena asked Marty to stay when the cantina closed and accompany her to her room.
"Please, Martin," she said as they reached the door to her room. "Stay with me. I do not want to be alone tonight."
"I'll never leave you alone," Marty said softly. "I'll always be here for you."
"Ah, Martin, muy amor, " she whispered as they embraced.
The kiss they shared was hot, passionate. Marty sensed that he was falling into something he couldn't control, that he was in over his head with this woman. He was just a simple cowboy from Carolina, an old war veteran who'd seen better days.
But he wasn't going to fight something that felt this good, something that gave his life meaning for the first time ever. He was 32-yeard-old, and he'd been drifting all of his life.
Even fighting in the war had been a form of drifting. Unlike many who fought, he had no particular passion for the rebel cause. He just went because it seemed like the thing to do at the time, he'd done his job and then moved on.
It had been the same with some of the women he'd had over the years. They were just there for his, or their, gratification, and nothing had ever come of those relationships.
Now, however, he had a woman who inflamed his passion, his lust for love and sex. He wanted Feleena and he wanted her desperately.
He felt her hot body against his, and he deftly flipped open the stays that ran down the back of her dress, which fell to the floor.
Feleena stepped out of the puddle of material and back slowly toward the bed. She sat and removed her shoes, then made a seductive show of rolling the stockings off each leg.
When she was naked except for the one-piece shift she wore as underclothes, she climbed onto her knees and beckoned Marty to join her.
He just stared at her long dark hair that flowed wildly about her shoulders, giving her an untamed look. He gazed wondrously at the swelling of her plump breasts that were only just covered by the top half of her shift.
Idly her painted fingers toyed with the tie that held the sides together, and she artfully tugged one end and it fell open, all but exposing her mounds.
"Come, Martin, come and love me," she said softly. "Take off your clothes and join me in love."
As if in a trance, Marty did as he was told. He peeled off the suit coat, the boots, the pants, then the shirt and finally shucked his long johns. He stood next to the bed with his long hard cock jutting out in front of him.
Feleena rolled onto her knees, with her succulent butt in the air. One hand slid under her body and opened the tie that held the crotch of her shift together. It opened to free her ass and her pink, wet sex to his view.
Her pussy opened like a ripe flower, a juicy fruit that was ready to be plucked. Marty climbed on the bed, behind Feleena's trembling body. He leaned onto her bed and buried his face in her fragrant hair, and her head lifted up to meet him, the lust between them soaring.
Marty barely had to guide his cock; it was as if it knew exactly where to go. Like a moth to a flame, the head found the opening to her cunt and his passion did the rest.
