The had gone but it was still a warm evening as Martha stood on the Armstrong  Bridge waiting for Benny who had taken a tram and had got off at the cottages and walked up to where Martha was. He took her in his arms and kissed her softly on the mouth she closed her eyes and wrapped her arms around him. She had missed him even though it had been only a day since they had been together. Martha took him by the hand and it felt totally natural, they walked through the Dene together talking about their day. The walked along the pathway all the way to the water fall. There were trees all around and there was a deep pool twelve feet below. Benny set his towel down on the grass bank and began to undress. Martha giggled and followed suit. When they were both naked he took her hand and then they both ran and then jumped into the void. The water was cold as they both surfaced and took a breath. The pool was about 16 feet deep and they treaded water together Benny supported her as she lay back and kicked her feet. He gazed down at her naked body; he took in the sheer beauty of it all. The roundedness of her breasts and the gentle curves of her hips and the shine the water made upon her naked thighs. The look in her eyes as she gazed up at him and her beautiful smile, the smile that told him everything about the way she felt about him.

He splashed her face playfully then swam off and she followed him and caught hold of his foot and pulled him back towards her. They embraced and her felt her body next to his and it excited him. They swam to the side and got out and walked up the bank to where they had left the towels and their clothes. Benny wrapped them both in his towel and they sat on the grass.

“Where did you tell your mother that you were going?’

“I told her I was going to the city baths.’

“So did I she laughed; a wood pigeon came to the waters edge and took a drink and they watched it as it scratted around looking for something to eat. “ I made a sandwich said Martha as she leaned across him and went into her bag and pulled out a bread packet and opened it up and pulled out two sandwiches made with ham and cheese.

She handed one to Benny who took a bite then broke off a crust and threw it down for the pigeon. He lay back on the grass looking up at the sky that was now turning a grey colour as the night closed in around them. She hooked her leg around him and then rested her head on his chest.

“Isn’t this lovely; I could stay here forever as long as you were with me Ben.’

She had shortened his name and he liked it.’

He ate the meat and cheese sandwich around the middle then left the rest of the bread for the bird. He went into his bag and pulled out a bottle of pop he opened it and handed it to Martha who took a drink the bubbles went up he nose and she coughed. Benny laughed as he took the bottle from her. He took a quick swig from the bottle then replaced the top and set it down on the grass he pulled Martha on top of him and gently and slowly they made love on top of the grass ban with the sound of the waterfall and the birds all around them. She helped him with his condom as he’d never used one before it seemed to have a different feel about it but it was necessary. At least he could enjoy himself without having to withdraw. The first time he came inside of her he was worried that the balloon would burst and Martha would end up pregnant. He called them love balloons which Martha found hilarious.

After the third time they had made love that night Benny felt more confident and their lovemaking lasted longer. They put their clothes back on after drying themselves.
