Rachael Morrison was in her room, unpacking her clothes and other stuff. She couldn't believe that she was taking a chance like this, but for once, she really thought that she was doing the right thing. Just about her whole family was against the move that she had made, but Rachael thought that it was something that she had to do.
What lead to this was something that happened when she was fourteen. She had been visiting her grandparents near Buffalo. While exploring the farm, she had gotten lost when a blizzard had hit the area. For almost six hours, she had been lost and she had almost froze to death. She was rescued in time and recovered from her ordeal, but something was changed.
Even since she had been caught in the blizzard, Rachael could never be cold enough. Matter of fact, the colder she was, the better it felt to her. Living in South Carolina, even during the winter, it wasn't cold enough for her. When other members of her family where wearing long sleeve shirts, sweaters and long pants, Rachael was wearing shorts and a light top and she still felt hot. At night, Rachael would sleep in the nude, with just a sheet over her and she would usually kick that off during the night. About the only thing that Rachael did that her parents really didn't care for was, when they were home alone, she would only wear underwear or less. Her Dad wasn't thrilled with her running around in her panties and bra or less, but secretly enjoyed seeing a cute teenage girl really underdressed.
After the near freezing, Rachael's parents recognized her aversion to warm temperatures. They had taken her to doctors who found her completely normal and healthy, except that her body temperature was about 10º cooler than other people. The doctors couldn't find any reason for her unique body temperature, but didn't think that, other than she couldn't tolerate high temperatures, it wouldn't do her any harm.
It didn't take her long to find a job, as she knew from a lot of her friends and fellow students about a job that no one really liked. That was working in the cooler and freezer at the supermarket. While other people hated to work in there, especially in the winter, Rachael loved it. She had to wear a few more clothes, but to her, it felt wonderful. People started to call her the 'Ice Princess', but it wasn't a derogatory nickname, but an affection nickname. Everyone in this small town knew of Rachael's ability to withstand cold temperatures and were really impressed with it.
One night in late September, Rachael was online, chatting with Joan, an online friend who lived in Maine, when, after they had been chatting for awhile, Joan suggested that she contact the Ghost Mountain Ski Resort. Ghost Mountain was looking for help and Joan thought that this is something that Rachael might be interested in. Rachael had experience in a variety of jobs, which would be helpful.
Rachael thanked Joan for the idea and signed off. Rachael had never thought about working at a ski resort and definitely, not in Maine. She went to the Ghost Mountain Ski Resort website and read the whole website. Looking at the pictures of the resort, she thought that the resort looked wonderful, especially with all that snow and ice.
She sent an e-mail to the resort and a couple days later, she got a reply from them, stating that they were interested in giving her an interview. In order to saving money and avoid having Rachael travel to Maine, they did a webcam interview. A few days later, Rachael got an e-mail from the resort offering her the job, if she could make her way to Maine.
Two weeks later, Rachael was on a plane heading to Maine. Jeff, one of her co-workers picked her up at the airport and took her to the resort. Jeff told her all about the resort on the way to the resort, which took about two hours. When they arrived at the resort, Rachael was surprised at the beauty of the mountain and the resort. Rachael and Jeff got out of the car. Jeff got Rachael's luggage out of the trunk.
"Wow, Jeff, this is beautiful. I never thought that it would be this beautiful. The pictures on the website don't even come close to the true beauty of this place," said Rachael. What she was really enjoying about the resort was that it was cool.
"That is so true," agreed Jeff. "I'm always in awe of the beauty of this place and our guests feel the same way."
As they walked toward the main building, Jeff pointed out the different parts of the resort. While Rachael was listening to what Jeff was telling her, she was kind of distracted by the beauty of the resort. Finally, they got to the main building and went into the lobby. Jeff put her luggage down and directed her to the dining room. "It is dinner time. It will be a good time to meet the some of the crew."
The resort was scheduled to open in six weeks, so all the staff was involved in getting everything ready for the guests. Rachael did all kinds of work, from getting the main building ready to working outside on the trails. Rachael really liked working outside, because of the mild to cooler temperatures that occurring at the resort.
During her off time, Rachael spent a lot of time, walking the trails of the resort. On one of the trails, she found a small trail that was off the main trail and decided to do some exploring. It took a few minutes to go down the trail, but at the end of the trail, she came across a small pond. Walking over to the water, Rachael knelt down and dipped her hand into the water. The temperature of the water was warm, but at a temperature that felt great to her. She thought that it would be fun to soak in it for awhile, but she would need something to dry off with or she would really get cold. She decided to finish her hike and come back here on her next day off.
A few days later, Rachael was at the pond, but this time she was prepared. She had brought a towel and a blanket, so she could go swimming and be able to dry off properly after she was done. Looking around, Rachael didn't see anyone within her line of sight. She had never been naked outdoors before, but she decided that being naked would be the best way to enjoy the pond. She took off all her jewelry and put in on the blanket. Her boots, socks, jacket, blouse, pants, bra and panties soon found their way onto the blanket.
After getting naked, Rachael stood by the pond for a few moments, enjoying the cool breeze on her naked body. It was a great feeling. Rachael stepped into the water. She had been in hot tubs before, but never liked them because they were too hot. While it really wasn't a hot tub, the water was warm enough to be warmer than the air, but not too hot for her.
For the next hour, Rachael alternately was in the water, enjoying the warm water and on the bank, enjoying the cool breeze and the warm sun on her body. While she was enjoying the view, she could see birds and other wildlife in the area around the pond. 'This is really beautiful, ' thought Rachael. 'I could really enjoy living here.'
Getting out of the water, Rachael laid back on the blanket and felt completely at peace. Almost by themselves, her fingers made their way down to her crotch. Gently spreading her lips, Rachael started to caress her pussy. With knowledge gained from lots of practice, it didn't take too long for Rachael to feel an orgasm starting to build. She enjoyed this part of masturbating just about as much as the climax. She continued to play with herself, enjoying the sensual and sexual feeling. She felt her climax approaching and was getting ready to enjoy it, when she heard a snap. 'Shit, ' she thought, very annoyed at someone interrupting her playtime. She really didn't want to stop masturbating, but she really didn't want someone to see her playing with herself.
Before she could really move, Rachael saw the head of a deer at the far end of the pond, then another, another and one more. There was a buck and three does that walked up to the pond. She was able to calm down a little bit as she watched the deer, but it was taking a lot of will power to keep quiet. The deer cautiously walked up to the edge of the pond and took a sip of water. Rachael had never been this close to deer, so it was interesting and fun to watch them. After all of the deer had taken a drink, Rachael decided to finish what she had started.
Rachael continued to caress herself and quickly felt her climax building. She tried to be quiet, as she didn't want to scare the deer. Most of the time, she was very vocal when she climaxed and since no one, except for the deer, were around, this was one time that she could be as loud as she wanted. At the first, 'oh ... oh ... oh' that came out of her mouth, the deer took off. Rachael was a little disappointed, but she had to continue with the task at hand and soon had a very satisfying and vocal orgasm.
After calming down from her orgasm, Rachael got up and got back into the pond. After being in the cool air, the warm water felt great. Rachael swam around for a little bit and then decided that she should be getting back to the lodge. She reluctantly got out of the water and dried herself with the towel. She got dressed and picked everything up.
As she walked back toward the lodge, she got to thinking about what had just happened. Getting naked and masturbating outdoors was something that she had never thought about doing, but somehow, here in this beautiful place, it seemed right. She had to laugh to herself as she wondered what her parents would think if they had seen her at the pond. After thinking about it for a few seconds, she decided that it probably wouldn't surprise them at all. After the near freezing incident, it was a struggle for them to keep her in clothes at home. It really was a rare occurrence if Rachael was wearing more than a T-shirt and/or panties. Even when she hit puberty, she didn't wear much at home. Even while it did make her parents a little uncomfortable, they did allow the behavior. It probably was better that she was an only child, as, if she had siblings, their male friends would probably find excuses to come over.
As she talked toward the lodge, she saw Ted walking down another trail. She had a bit of a crush on Ted. He was tall, handsome, funny and probably loved the outdoors and the cold weather about as much as she did. As they meet at the intersection of the trail, she said, "Hi, Ted."
Ted smiled as he saw Rachael. "Hi, Rachael. It doesn't surprise me to see you out on a beautiful day like this." Ted knew about how much she loved the cold. It didn't take long for people to figure that out.
Rachael returned the smile and said, "Hi, Ted. Having a nice hike?"
"Sure am. I like the trails around here, especially the High Wind Trail."
"I haven't done that one yet. I was just on the River Trail." She also said something about the pond, but if no one else knew about pond, she wanted it to keep it her secret.
"I haven't done the High Wind Trail," said Rachael.
Ted replied, "High Wind Trail is a trail for the more experienced hiker. It is really steep, tough and kind of dangerous, but if you can make it to the top, the view is awe-inspiring."
"I'm not that great a hiker, but I think that I would like to try that trail," said Rachael. "I guess it would be better if I had someone to act as a guide and a hiking companion."
Ted thought that Rachael was a great girl, so the hint was not wasted on him. "We have another day off on Sunday. If the weather is nice, do you want to do it then?"
"Yes, I would love to," replied Rachael.
"It's a date then," said Ted, looking at the sky. It was close to getting dark, so he said, "We better get back to the lodge."
It took about a half-hour to get back to the lodge. Rachael and Ted just made small talk on the way back, but Rachael was excited about going on the hike with Ted.
Ted was almost as excited about going on the hike with Rachael as she was. From the first time that he saw her, he thought that there was something special about Rachael and he really wanted to get to know her better.
When they got back to the lodge, Ted asked Rachael if she would have dinner with him. Rachael said she would, but she wanted to take a shower first. Ted thought that was a good idea. After they took their showers, they meet in the dinning room and had a very pleasant dinner. When Rachael got back to her room, she thought that this could be the start of a good relationship.
For the next week, Rachael and Ted were always together. Ted was able to get her assigned to his work crew and they always ate together, played together and did just about everything else together. Both of them really enjoyed each other's company and enjoyed working with each other.
Finally, it was Sunday and they were ready for their hike. First, they stopped at the lodge kitchen and picked up food and drinks for the hike. The High Wind Trail started at the top of the ski lift, so they got the ski lift operator to give them a ride to the top, under the pretext of a test. This was Rachael's first time on the ski lift and she was really enjoying the view.
"Wow, this is an incredible view," said Rachael as they reached the halfway point of the lift. "I still can't believe how beautiful this place is."
This was Ted's second season at the resort and one of the reasons that he decided to come back was the beauty of the place. "I agree. This place is incredibly beautiful." Ted looked at his friend and thought, 'This is pretty beautiful, too.'
Finally, the lift reached the top got off. After getting off the lift and before they headed toward the trail, Rachael and Ted made a pit stop at the mountain lodge. Soon, they were on the trail. It didn't take long for Rachael realized that this was a difficult trail, but she was sure that she wouldn't have any problems. There wasn't much time for conversation as they climbed, but there were plenty of opportunities to admire the scenery.
Ted didn't know for sure how experienced a hiker Rachael was, so he didn't push her. He knew that he could hike faster than she could, but he maintained a slower pace. He was also impressed that Rachael was tolerating the cold so well. He knew the story of Rachael's near freezing, but it still was amazing. While they were going up the trail, Rachael and Ted saw birds and small animals. Not many larger animals were at this elevation on the mountain. Finally, they reached the end of the trail, where there was a scenic overlook.
Rachael went to the edge of the overlook and took in the beauty of the scenery. She knew that Ghost Mountain was beautiful place, but every time she saw a new part of the resort, it was more beautiful than the last place she saw. Looking over the valley, Rachael could see some large bird, lazily floating on the air currents. After watching them for awhile, she turned to Ted and said, "Oh, Ted, thank you for bringing me up here. This is so beautiful."
Ted had gotten his camera out and was taking pictures. "You're welcome, Rachael. It really is beautiful up here, but it is more beautiful when you can share it with some one." Ted went back to taking pictures, but kept thinking about something else that was pretty beautiful up here and something worth photographing.
"I think that my folks would get a kick out of seeing me in all this snow," said Rachael.
"Would you like me to take some pictures of you?" asked Ted.
"Do you have enough film?"
"This is a digital SLR camera. It doesn't use film and I have plenty of space on the memory stick," said Ted.
For the next twenty minutes, Ted took pictures of Rachael. Some were serious, some silly, but he thought that Rachael was doing a pretty good job as a model. After he was done, he showed the pictures to Rachael, who really liked them.
"You sure are a good photographer, Ted."
"Thank you, Rachael, but it is easy to be a good photographer when you have a great and pretty model."
Rachael blushed a little and said, "You think that I'm a good model?"
"Sure, do. You seem to have a natural grace and you followed directions pretty well. You probably could be a professional model, if you wanted to be."
"No, that is not going to happen," said Rachael. "I couldn't stand to be in hot weather or under hot lights. I guess if I could model in conditions where it was, at least, cool conditions, I would do it."
"Well, I still think that you could be a good model." Ted started to put his camera away, but Rachael stopped him.
Ted couldn't understand why Rachael was having difficulty talking when she asked him, "Do you ... um ... still have ... room for more pictures in your camera."
"Sure, I can take a lot more pictures. Why?"
"Just get ready to take some pictures." Rachael looked around and found a good spot and said, "Okay, I'm ready."
Ted raised the camera and took a couple of shots. He wondered what Rachael was doing when he noticed that she was unzipping her jacket. He didn't think much of that and continued taking pictures of her. Rachael took off her jacket and put down on a bench that was next to her. Ted continued to take photographs of Rachael as she continued to pose. Ted stopped when Rachael started to unzip her pants, but continued to take some pictures as she tried to get her pants off. As he took the pictures, Ted thought that it was kind of funny, comedic and erotic, all at the same time, as Rachael struggled to get her pants off over her boots.
Finally, she got the pants off. Ted thought that she looked pretty good, standing there only in a bra and panties. While he knew the story, he thought that it was pretty amazing that she could stand the cold weather. It wasn't too bad, temperature-wise, but it still was cold, but it didn't seem to bother Rachael. Ted continued to take pictures of Rachael. It didn't take long for her bra and panties to land on her jacket.
Ted looked at the naked girl in front of him. From the first time that he had seen her, he thought that Rachael was a very pretty girl. Seeing her naked just confirmed that opinion. Looking at her, he saw a blonde girl, about 5'6", a 115 pounds, 34B-cup, slim waist and a bald pussy.
It really didn't take Ted long to fill up the rest of the memory stick of his camera. Rachael was a great model and seeing her against the white of the snow was really erotic. Ted didn't even had to compose the shot, as it was like he was taking the picture in an auto mode. He had never taken nudes of a girl before, but as he took pictures of Rachael, it seemed like he had been doing it all his life.
Finally, the memory stick was full. "I'm sorry, Rachael, but I can't take any more pictures. The memory card is full."
"Darn, I was really enjoying it," said Rachael, as she walked over to where Ted was standing. "Can I take a look at the pictures?"
Ted looked at the camera display and said, "I'm sorry, but the batteries are almost exhausted. When we get back to the lodge, I will get my laptop and I can show them to you then."
"It is probably for the best. We should be getting back," said Rachael.
"That probably is a good idea," said Ted, as he packed up his camera. Ted watched as Rachael walked over to the bench and picked up her clothes. He waited for her to put them on, but she just folded them up, so she could carry them easily. "Aren't you going to get dressed?"
"No, it isn't that cold out and to tell the truth, this is the most comfortable I have felt in a long time," explained Rachael. "I just love the cold."
Ted shook his head and said, "I think that it is pretty amazing that you can tolerate the cold so well."
"Ever since the near freezing, I never seem to be cold enough. That is why when I heard about this job, I applied for it. South Carolina is just too warm for me."
"That must have been a terrible experience, Rach."
"It was, but thank goodness, my grandfather found me in time."
The two friends walked down the trail for awhile without talking. Finally, Ted asked a question that he had been curious about. "Rach, can I ask you a personal question?"
"Why did you let me take nude pictures of you? While we have been friends for awhile, we're not that good of friends."
"You didn't like seeing me naked?"
Ted was a little concerned about how to answer the question. "Most guys like to be with a naked girl, especially a very pretty naked girl, which you are. I have had a few girlfriends and it took awhile for our relationship to get to the point where we would see each other naked. I just didn't think that we had a good enough relationship to see each other naked."
Rachael smiled. "That is a very good answer. Ted, I do like you and I trust you completely. Being naked isn't a big deal for me. If I could, I probably would be naked most of the time around the resort. As I said, this was the most comfortable I have been since I got here. I thought that it would be fun to have some naked pictures taken of me, so I could send some of them to my parents."
Ted interrupted Rachael. "You're going to send nude pictures to your parents?"
"About a year after my accident, I pretty much stopped wearing clothes around the house. I might have worn panties and a T-shirt, but that was pretty much it. My folks have seen me naked a lot and while my Dad was a little uncomfortable about it, he accepted it. I think that they will enjoy seeing me comfortable in this cold weather."
"Cool," said Ted. "You know something, Rach, you are reminding me more and more of the Snow Ghost."
"Snow Ghost? What is that?"
"Well, it is a more of a who," said Ted, going on to explain the legend. "Basically, a husband and wife were traveling in the area, heading south from Canada. They had decided to spend some time in the area, due to bad weather. A particular bad storm hit and while I'm not sure of the details, the wife was found wandering around in the storm naked. The husband was never found and the wife died shortly after they found her. The legend has it that every once in awhile, the ghost of the woman will be seen around the mountain, naked, looking for her husband."
"That is an interesting story. I guess I can see where you would think that I'm a snow ghost," said Rachael. After being quiet for a little bit, she said, "You know, Ted, I do feel like a snow ghost."
Rachael and Ted walked for a little bit more and then Rachael decided that she should get dressed. Being a little disappointed; Ted held her clothes as Rachael got dressed.
After she got dressed, they continued to the mountain lodge and took the ski lift down. When they reached the bottom, Rachael said, "Ted, why don't you bring your computer to my room and you can develop the pictures and load them right onto my laptop."
"Sounds good to me, Rach. I will go get it and meet you in your room in a few minutes," said Ted.
It was about ten minutes later, with his laptop, when Ted knocked on the door of Rachael's room. The door opened and Ted walked into the room. Rachael closed the door.
"Well, I guess your dress code is pretty consistent," said Ted, when he saw Rachael standing in the room, still completely naked. He put his computer down next to Rachael's computer.
"I did have a roommate, but she couldn't stand my constant nudity and the cool temperature in here, so I have a room all to myself," said Rachael.
"Lucky you," said Ted. It took a few minutes for him to hook up the camera to his laptop. It took a little more time for the camera to download the pictures into the laptop. Ted decided that he would show Rachael all the pictures and then let pick out the pictures that she wanted to save. He started the slide show.
After a few pictures, Rachael said, "Wow, these are great shots, Ted. You are a great photographer. Have you had anything published?"
"I have had a couple photographs published in magazines, but not too much. This is mostly just a hobby," said Ted as he continued to show Rachael the pictures. "Of course, it is easy to take good pictures when you have a beautiful model."
Rachael didn't say anything, but Ted could tell that she was blushing.
As they looked at the pictures, Rachael noticed that Ted looked a little uncomfortable. "Is something wrong, Ted?"
"You look a little uncomfortable."
"Well ... I guess I'm a little uncomfortable with you being naked ... and being so close."
Rachael smiled and said, "I was naked for almost an hour up on the mountain. Now you are nervous to be next to me?"
"I don't know. It seemed so innocent up on the mountain, even though I was taking nude pictures of you," said Ted, keeping his eyes on the computer screen.
"Do you think that you would be more comfortable if you were naked too?" asked Rachael.
"I don't think so. I probably would get more nervous," said Ted. "I really like you, Rach and I don't want to do anything to ruin our friendship."
"You'll not do that, Ted," said Rachael. "I trust you completely. I told you before that I don't care if anyone sees me naked. I'm not embarrassed to be naked and no one should be embarrassed to see me naked." Ted looked at Rachael, but didn't say anything. After a little bit, Rachael finally said, "Come on, Ted. Take off your clothes." Ted didn't do anything. "I will even turn up the heat for you. I know that it is chilly in here." Ted still didn't move, so Rachael said, "Well, if you are bothered by me being naked in here, I will get dressed for you."
Hearing that she would get dressed for him, Ted realized that she was going over the line to make him comfortable and that really wasn't right. "No, that is okay. I will get undressed. I don't want you to be too uncomfortable." Without waiting for her to answer, Ted stood up and started to take off his clothes. It didn't take long for him to be dressed exactly like Rachael.
"Do you feel a little more comfortable, Ted?" asked Rachael as they both sat down at the desk.
"This is the first time that I have done something like this, Rach, but I guess I feel a little more comfortable."
Rachael and Ted went back to editing the photos. It took about an hour to get the pictures selected and processed. While Ted was working on the photos, he forgot about being naked. Rachael selected some photographs, both nudes and non-nudes to send to her parents. She composed an e-mail to include with the photos. After attaching them to the e-mail, Rachael clicked the send button.
"I should be shocked that you sent your parents nude photographs, but now knowing the whole story, this would be something normal for you."
"Not normal, but with my life style, not outside the realm of possibility," said Rachael. "Don't worry. My folks will love them. They are really beautiful photographs."
"I hope so."
"Would you like something to drink, Ted?"
"A Cola would be fine."
Rachael went over to the small refrigerator, opened the door and bent over to get a cola out of the refrigerator. Ted noticed that she had bent at the waist and that he could see her pussy lips peeking out from between her legs. Standing up and turning around, Rachael asked, "Do you want a glass or is the can okay?"
"The can is fine."
Rachael brought the can over to Ted and gave it to him. After watching him take a sip, she said, "You know, Ted, I really had a good time today. You take really great photographs and I love them. I really appreciate you taking them and I want to thank you."
"You don't have to thank me. I probably was enjoying the photo shot more than you were," said Ted, turning to face his friend.
"No, I have to," said Rachael. With that comment, Rachael got down on her knees, took Ted's penis in her hand and then gently took it into her mouth.
Ted was shocked, but pleasantly surprised at what Rachael was doing. While he had hoped that he might have sex with her, but wasn't sure that was going to happen. He could tell that he was getting erect, but there was a different feeling to the blowjob that Rachael was giving than other blowjobs that he had received. Not better or worse, but different.
Rachael was enjoying giving Ted a blowjob. She had only done it a couple times before, but the guys who she had given the blowjobs to had never asked her to do it again. She couldn't understand why, because she had always heard that guys loved blowjobs, especially if the girl swallowed. For the next few minutes, Rachael sucked and licked Ted's penis lovingly.
Ted was really enjoying Rachael's blowjob, but it felt different than the blowjobs that he had gotten from other girls. He tried to figure out why and then he knew why it felt different - her mouth was cooler. Ted thought that it was an interesting feeling to have something cool around his cock. Ted leaned back in his chair, enjoying the blowjob. He thought that Rachael was doing a pretty good job. After a couple more minutes, Ted could sense that he was getting ready to come.
"Ah, Rach, I'm getting ready to come." Ted thought that Rachael slowed down for a second, but quickly picked up the pace again. She kept going until Ted climax and shot his semen into her mouth. Rachael kept sucking and swallowing until he was spent. Rachael sucked and licked his penis for a few more seconds.
Finally, Rachael let Ted's penis slide out of her mouth. "Wow, that was great, Ted. I really enjoyed giving you a blowjob."
"I really enjoyed getting a blowjob from you, Rach. It was a great feeling to have your mouth around my penis."
Rachael got a surprised look on her face. "You really liked it?"
"I sure did. It was a great blowjob."
"Would you want me to give you another one?"
A little surprised, Ted replied, "I sure would, Rach. You gave me a great one and just about every guy would love to get a blowjob from a pretty girl. Why did you ask that?"
Getting up and sitting down on the chair next to Ted, Rachael was a little hesitant. "Well, I have given a few blowjobs, which I enjoyed, but for some reason, the guys I had given the blowjobs to, never asked me to do it again. Even when I offered to do it again, they refused. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong."
"Trust me, Rachael, you didn't do anything wrong. Matter of fact, it was pretty good," said Ted. "I think that I may know why the those other guys didn't want to get a blowjob from you."
"What! What! Tell me, Ted," said Rachael, excitedly.
"Well, Rachael, your mouth is a lot cooler than other girls. It is a different feeling, but one I enjoyed."
Rachael looked relieved. "That explains a lot. I never thought about that. I wonder if my pussy would feel the same way."
"Are you a virgin?"
"No, but again, guys seemed never to want to have a second helping," said Rachael.
"Their lost, Rach."
After a few seconds, Rachael said, "Would you like another blowjob?"
"I would love to, Rachael, but it's getting late and I got an early work call tomorrow."
"If you don't want to do it again, I understand," said Rachael, dejectedly.
Ted went over and kissed Rachael. "No, that is not true. I would love to have any kind of sex with you, but I really have to go. We will get together again. Soon."
Rachael looked relieved, as Ted got dressed. After getting dressed and packing up his computer equipment, Ted walked to the door. Rachael followed him and said, "I had a great time today, Ted."
"I did too, Rach," said Ted. To show her that he was interested in her, with his free hand, Ted tweaked Rachael's nipple. He heard her quietly moaned with pleasure. He thought about playing with her pussy, but decided that might be pushing the envelope of their burgeoning relationship. Reluctantly, Ted said goodbye to Rachael and left her room.
Rachael hated to admit it but it was late and she needed to go to bed. After taking a shower and going to the toilet, Rachael got into bed. Before going to sleep, Rachael reviewed the events of the day with a big smile on her face and her fingers playing with her clit. After getting herself off, Rachael fell into a very restful and contented sleep.
In his room, Ted was also thinking about the day's events. He thought that it was great that he had made a connection with Rachael. He couldn't believe that she let him take nude pictures of her, that he was naked in her room with her also naked and that he got a great blowjob from her. It really was a red-letter day for him. After using the bathroom, he slipped into his bed and like Rachael, fell into a contented sleep.
The next morning, Rachael and Ted meet for breakfast. Ted could see the glow on Rachael's face. "Morning, Rach," said Ted as he greeted his new friend. "Did you sleep well?"
"Morning, Ted. Yes, I did. I had so much fun yesterday," Rachael replied and than lowering her voice, so only Ted could hear, "I hated to see it end."
Ted smiled, knowing that there was a good chance that they could become good friends or maybe more. "Me, too."
"Oh, I got an e-mail from my parents this morning. They loved the photographs that you sent. They were wondering if they could make prints of some of the photographs. They would like to display some of them." Again, Rachael whispered to Ted, "They especially liked the nude ones. They said it looked like I was really enjoying myself and that I was having fun being naked in the snow."
"Tell them that they can make prints of any of the photographs that they would like. I'm happy that they like them," said Ted. Lowering his voice, he said, "I can't believe that they are going to display nude photographs of you.'
Rachael laughed and said, "Most of the people who have known me since the accident have seen me underdressed, so they wouldn't be seeing anything that, most likely, they haven't seen before."
Rachael and Ted continued to talk as they eat breakfast. When they were done, they walked out of the lodge and as they went to their jobs, Ted leaned down and kissed Rachael. "I will see you later, Rach."
"I will be counting the minutes," said Rachael, smiling.
Due to their schedules and some problems that came up, Rachael and Ted weren't able to get together until lunch the next day. At lunch, they found out that they had free time, so Rachael suggested that they go on a hike.
"I have to go to my room and get some stuff. Why don't you go get your camera," said Rachael.
Ted liked the idea of taking his camera along on the hike. "Okay, meet you back here in about fifteen minutes."
Fifteen minutes later, Rachael and Ted were heading out the door. As they walked toward the River Trail. While the River Trail wasn't as tough or beautiful as the High Wind Trail, it was a nice trail and it did have some really beautiful scenery. As they walked, Ted kept wondering about the bundle that Rachael was carrying. He had asked her about it, but she had just said that it would be a surprise.
They had been walking for about a half-hour, when Rachael said, "Here, let's go down this trail."
Ted really didn't see a trail, but he followed Rachael down a kind of hidden trail. It took a few minutes for them to reach the pool that Rachael had discovered earlier.
"Wow," said Ted. "I didn't know that this was were. This is pretty cool."
"It is a natural hot tub," said Rachael. "Or more correctly, a warm tub. Feel the water, Ted."
Ted did ask Rachael asked and knelt down by the pond and put his hand into the water. "You're right, Rach. It is a warm tub and the water feel nice."
"Do you want to go skinny-dipping?"
"Sure. What guy wouldn't want to skinny-dip with a beautiful girl." Ted started to take off his clothes.
Rachael got a plastic sheet out of the bundle and then put a thick blanket on top of it. She took off her clothes and put them on the blanket. After Ted got his clothes off, he put them next to Rachael's. Hand in hand, Rachael and Ted entered the pond.
Ted liked the feel and the temperature of the pond and he was really enjoying the company of Rachael. He was sure that Rachael was feeling the same way about his company. Rachael and Ted just lazily drifted around the pond.
Looking at Rachael and taking her hands in his, Ted said, "Thank you for bringing me here. This is really beautiful."
"You're welcome and you are right. It is very beautiful here," replied Rachael. "Shhh, be quiet. There are some deer coming."
Ted looked over and saw a buck and a couple does come up to the far end of the pond. Like Rachael, just his head was above the water. The deer didn't think anything was out of place, so they come up to the water and took a drink. They stayed at the edge of the pond for a couple minutes and then as quietly as they came, the deer walked away.
"Wow, is that cool or what?" asked Rachael.
"I have never seen deer so up close and personal," said Ted. "That was really, really cool."
"Last time I was here, I saw them about in the same spot. I was on the bank right about here, playing with myself." Rachael stopped, with an embarrassed look on her face.
"I bet you looked beautiful, laying there, playing with yourself," said Ted.
"Probably," said Rachael as she got out of the pond and sat on the edge of the pond, on the blanket, with her legs in the water. "Gad, I love it here."
"So do I, Rach," said Ted, as he relaxed in the pond, watching Rachael. Finally, he decided that he had to do it. Going over to where Rachael was sitting, Ted gently spread Rachael's legs, so he could get closer to her.
Ted knew what he wanted to say, but he wanted to say it correctly. "Rach, you are one of the most fascinating people I have ever meet. The last couple weeks have been some of the best weeks of my life. I really like you. I might even be falling for you."
Rachael looked at Ted and said, "I agree with everything you said. I happen to feel the same way about you. You are funny, good looking, smart, a wiz with a camera and my condition doesn't bother you at all."
Ted put his arms around Rachael. "It does bother me a little, but not enough that I can't adopt to it. Also, I'm not going to let it stop me from getting to know you better."
Rachael smiled and put her hands around Ted. "I'm glad to hear that, Ted. I want to get to know you better too." Than, Rachael kissed Ted.
And he kissed back. For the next few minutes, Rachael and Ted kissed, with Rachael sitting on the bank with her feet in the water and Ted standing in the water, between Rachael's legs. Their first real kiss was magical and to several more magical kisses. After a few minutes of kissing and some heavy duty kissing.
Finally, they stopped kissing. Rachael was the first one to speak, saying, "Wow, Ted. You sure are a great kisser."
