23. Chapter 23

  At Kelly’s yacht around twelve on the Sunday, they said farewell to their princess. That was the plan, anyway. Kelly instead dropped a minor bombshell on them while hanging around on the yacht’s rear deck.

  “I apologise for being absent, Lisa. To make up for it, at least somewhat, allow me to give you both a ride back home!”

  “Now we’re talking,” Lisa said, giving her friend a hug. She pecked Kelly on the cheek. “Been good seeing you again, if only briefly.”

  “Perhaps I could visit you on Earth?”

  Resting her hands on Kelly’s shoulders, Lisa nodded. “I wouldn’t be averse to that. I’ll show you around Canterbury and the Royal Academy.”

  Anise butted in here. “The Royal Academy!? I wonder if I could come along…”

  “Hey, the more the merrier!” Lisa said, chuckling at her lover’s rosy-cheeked idolgasm. “I’ll be busy while there, but I’d probably be able to keep a week or two reasonably free in the event any lovely girls might feel inclined to jump me. Or visit. I get those confused pretty often.”

  Kelly let out a princess-like giggle. “You certainly seem to have flowered since we last saw each other. I felt during your visit that you didn’t quite understand yourself. I felt much the same at the time.”

  “You’re quite the perceptive girl under that cute exterior, huh?” Lisa said. She let out a short cough and beamed, hoping to derail things there. “So, we ready to get going?”

  Kelly was quite perceptive enough to understand Lisa didn’t feel like saying more, so she simply smiled and motioned for Nisette to fly them out of there. As the name implied, a star-yacht could be flown not only in-atmosphere, but also through hyperspace, but on this occasion they would enjoy a mere ten minute jaunt across to Aida, however.

  Nisette made her way up to the bridge via one of two staircases to either side of the spacious cabin’s entrance, and went through pre-flight. All hatches and doors were closed and hermitically sealed, and two reinforced plastiglass covers were extended up from the sides of the yacht, closing over the deck at the rear, allowing for passengers to look out while in transit.

  Their guests remained on deck as the yacht got airborne, water splashing down to the lake below as it gained altitude.

  Anise pulled Lisa to one side. “No intentions of telling her how you feel? Not like you’re tied down or anything, she might be interested…”

  Lisa shook her head. “I like the idea, but no. You understand how I feel because you feel the same for Isla, right?”

  Anise nodded.

  “But in my case, I’ve not seen her for years, I think it’d be a bit awkward bringing it up now. Especially if I told her how often I’d… thought of her back then.” Lisa coughed, indicating a guilty conscience.

  “By thought of her, you mean…?”

  “Don’t make me draw you a picture, please.”

  Anise stifled a loud snort. “Dare I ask if you’ve thought about me?”

  “Probably unnecessary,” Lisa said, chuckling. “I’m perfectly comfortable with myself and my interests. But Kelly… she’s special. I’d feel really weird about trying anything.”

  “I won’t mention it again,” Anise whispered, and pecked her lover’s cheek.

  “You don’t need to go that far. It’s just that I have two best friends, one I’m happy to be sexy with, the other… not so much.” Lisa shrugged. “Though don’t get me wrong, I’d love to get her naked! But… I dunno, it’s difficult to explain.”

  “It’s a bit disconcerting seeing you be this hesitant over something,” Anise said, tilting her head a little in a ‘discovered something new and interesting about someone’  way.

  “Which should tell you all you need to know about how odd this makes me feel,” Lisa said, laughing.

  Kelly reinserted herself into proceedings here. “I’m sorry to interrupt your conversation, but we are quite close to Aida now.”

  Lisa straightened up. “That, we are! Guess you’re heading straight back to Slogh?”

  The princess gave a brief and shallow bow. “I am, yes. A few last affairs to put into order before I return to the academy, apologies.”

  “I’ll probably be gone before then.” Lisa embraced her friend, enjoying her princess’s warmth and wonderful fragrance, floral of course. “I’ll do what I can to leave some space in my schedule in the event you can visit Canterbury, Kels.”

  “I shall be focused on becoming Dream Queen from now on, but Fates willing, yes.” Kelly disengaged and turned her attention to their silent third. “I believe you will still be at the academy, Anise?”

  “Yep! I’m in room 34, stop by any time you like.”

  Kelly gave her newest friend a brief hug. “I will look forward to it.”

  They came in to land on one of the academy’s landing pads south of the dormitory and Kelly’s guests hopped off, running down the black metal stairs and over to the campus island via one of the sturdy bridges.

  The yacht lifted off once more, its thrusters blanketing the area with ear-bending noise, and Lisa waved her princess out of sight.

  She sighed. “And there she goes.”

  Anise squeezed her hand. “You’ll see her again.”

  “Yeah… I guess I will, huh? Now, I believe we probably have something to discuss?”

  “As much as I don’t want to.”

  They headed up to Anise’s room and entered, dumping their things at the foot of the bed for now. Sitting on the mattress, she hugged Lisa as though her life depended on it. Despite the casual nature of their relationship, she had become considerably more attached than she might have intended. She forced herself to actually speak, to say the words that would effectively end this wonderful – if brief – relationship.

  “The last couple of weeks have been amazing, Lisa! Especially this weekend. Thank you, I mean really thank you for being with me like this.” She nibbled her way all around Lisa’s neck, up to her cheek, pecking her lips a few times.

  “Any time. I mean that quite literally, of course. Any time you want another go, just ping me!” Lisa said, chuckling. “I’ve had a total blast with you as well, my girl. Not often someone quite as amazing as you just strolls into my life like this.” She tugged her lover’s hair from its accustomed twintails, admiring one last time how incredibly beautiful she was with her hair loose and wavy.

  Anise blushed, looking down and fidgeting. “Thanks…”

  “You going to pounce on Isla, then?”

  “I’d like to. And I want to be intimate with her again, that’s for sure. But we’ve been such good friends for such a long time now that it’s always awkward thinking about her as more than that. No different to you and Kelly, I suppose.”

  “You only get the one life, Anise.”

  “This from the girl who just told me how hesitant she is about jumping Kelly?” Anise said, an amused smile on her lips.

  “That’s more to do with her station in life and how busy I am most of the time. But you raise a valid point, I admit. So I know what I’m talking about. You don’t want to miss out on something special, right? Isla’s just spent the weekend with Millie, a girl I’m very fond of, and who I can tell you right now is as gay as a tree full of drunken monkeys.”

  Anise creased up with laughter. “Sounds like a girl I need to meet!” She returned to a slightly more sober mode. “So basically… I shouldn’t hang about if I don’t want Isla taken by someone else?”

  “Yup. Why’d you think Mira and I maintain a permanent sexy relationship in addition to our regular friendship?”

  Pondering for a moment, Anise finally said, “The obvious answer is physical pleasure and intimacy, but I don’t think that’s the right answer.”

  “Correct, it’s not.”

  “I guess… living life for the moment? Or maybe more like… not wanting regrets?”

  Lisa issued a brief kiss as a minor reward. “Correct again. It was nothing more complicated than me deciding I found Mira attractive and talking to her about it. She confessed to fancying me in return, we agreed to get naked and explore, rest is history.”

  “This was after leaving Kelly?”

  “About a year later, yeah. We were together at the Royal Academy for a year, studying and all that good stuff. And I was… pretty frustrated, let’s just say that.”

  “I’ve had to relieve Isla-related tensions quite a few times over the last few years, I understand!” Anise said. She avoided mentioning that one time she had to relieve Lisa-related tensions; she figured this girl was more than perceptive enough to have guessed anyway.

  Lisa tilted her head. “Other than Mira, I suspect you understand me better than anyone else alive. An impressive feat considering we only met two weeks ago.”

  “I honestly didn’t expect to run into someone like you, Lisa. I… don’t want to let you go, haha…”

  Lisa wrapped her arms around Anise, rubbing her back. “Likewise. You’ll always have a special place in my heart. And you’ll always be welcome in my pants, naturally. But we both know who your heart truly belongs to, right?”

  “Mm…”

  “So… with that said, one last night of hot, steamy sex, my dear?”

  Anise emitted an odd mixture of laugh and sob. “Yeah… yeah! Let’s go out with a bang!”

  “Now we’re cooking with fusion,” Lisa said, and went in for a kiss… followed by considerably more than a kiss.
