Littler Brother 2
They were round and liquid and expressive. She could make them bug out when she wanted to make me laugh, or make them soft and sad, or lazy and sleepy in a way that made me melt into a puddle of horniness.That's what she was doing right now.I sat up slowly and hugged her.
She hugged me back. We kissed.
She was an amazing kisser. I know I've already said that, but it bears repeating.
We kissed a lot, but for one reason or another we always stopped before it got too heavy.Now I wanted to go farther. I found the hem of her t-shirt and tugged.
She put her hands over her head and pulled back a few inches. I knew that she'd do that.
I'd known since the night in the park. Maybe that's why we hadn't gone farther — I knew I couldn't rely on her to back off, which scared me a little.But I wasn't scared then.
The impending press-conference, the fights with my parents, the international attention, the sense that there was a movement that was careening around the city like a wild pinball — it made my skin tingle and my blood sing.And she was beautiful, and smart, and clever and funny, and I was falling in love with her.Her shirt slid off, her arching her back to help me get it over her shoulders.
She reached behind her and did something and her bra fell away. I stared goggle-eyed, motionless and breathless, and then she grabbed my shirt and pulled it over my head, grabbing me and pulling my bare chest to hers.We rolled on the bed and touched each other and ground our bodies together and groaned.
She kissed all over my chest and I did the same to her. I couldn't breathe, I couldn't think, I could only move and kiss and lick and touch.We dared each other to go forward.
I undid her jeans. She undid mine.
I lowered her zipper, she did mine, and tugged my jeans off. I tugged off hers.
A moment later we were both naked, except for my socks, which I peeled off with my toes.It was then that I caught sight of the bedside clock, which had long ago rolled onto the floor and lay there, glowing up at us."Crap!" I yelped.
"It starts in two minutes!" I couldn't freaking believe that I was about to stop what I was about to stop doing, when I was about to stop doing it. I mean, if you'd asked me, "Marcus, you are about to get laid for the firstest time EVAR, will you stop if I let off this nuclear bomb in the same room as you?" the answer would have been a resounding and unequivocal NO.And yet we stopped for this.She grabbed me and pulled my face to hers and kissed me until I thought I would pass out, then we both grabbed our clothes and more or less dressed, grabbing our keyboards and mice and heading for Patcheye Pete's.#You could easily tell who the press were: they were the noobs who played their characters like staggering drunks, weaving back and forth and up and down, trying to get the hang of it all, occasionally hitting the wrong key and offering strangers all or part of their inventory, or giving them accidental hugs and kicks.The Xnetters were easy to spot, too: we all played Clockwork Plunder whenever we had some spare time (or didn't feel like doing our homework), and we had pretty tricked-out characters with cool weapons and booby-traps on the keys sticking out of our backs that would cream anyone who tried to snatch them and leave us to wind down.When I appeared, a system status message displayed M1K3Y HAS ENTERED PATCHEYE PETE'S — WELCOME SWABBIE WE OFFER FAIR TRADE FOR FINE BOOTY. All the players on the screen froze, then they crowded around me.
The chat exploded. I thought about turning on my voice-paging and grabbing a headset, but seeing how many people were trying to talk at once, I realized how confusing that would be.
Text was much easier to follow and they couldn't misquote me (heh heh).I'd scouted the location before with Ange — it was great campaigning with her, since we could both keep each other wound up.
There was a high-spot on a pile of boxes of salt-rations that I could stand on and be seen from anywhere in the market.> Good evening and thank you all for coming.
My name is M1k3y and I'm not the leader of anything. All around you are Xnetters who have as much to say about why we're here as I do.
I use the Xnet because I believe in freedom and the Constitution of the United States of America. I use Xnet because the DHS has turned my city into a police-state where we're all suspected terrorists.
I use Xnet because I think you can't defend freedom by tearing up the Bill of Rights. I learned about the Constitution in a California school and I was raised to love my country for its freedom.
If I have a philosophy, it is this:> Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.> I didn't write that, but I believe it.
The DHS does not govern with my consent.> Thank youI'd written this the day before, bouncing drafts back and forth with Ange. Pasting it in only took a second, though it took everyone in the game a moment to read it.
A lot of the Xnetters cheered, big showy pirate "Hurrah"s with raised sabers and pet parrots squawking and flying overhead.Gradually, the journalists digested it too.
The chat was running past fast, so fast you could barely read it, lots of Xnetters saying things like "Right on" and "America, love it or leave it" and "DHS go home" and "America out of San Francisco," all slogans that had been big on the Xnet blogosphere.> M1k3y, this is Priya Rajneesh from the BBC. You say you're not the leader of any movement, but do you believe there is a movement? Is it called the Xnet?Lots of answers.
