Kevin and Lauren get a little distracted on their way to a tennis date with friends.
Lauren stood in the bathroom mirror looking at her breasts through her lingerie top. Her first thought was that she wished her breasts were as perky as they were when she was a college freshman. Her next thought? Kevin’s mouth on her breast. Her nipple began getting hard thinking about how he woke her up.
She then exhaled and her shoulders dropped at the thought of Russell interrupting their morning. It seemed to be happening more and more as the weeks and months went by. Their daughters (Rose - 11 and Sofia - 9) were never as rambunctious as Russell. However, they did their fair share of intruding on their parent’s privacy - primarily through their intense sibling rivalry. She missed the days when she and Kevin could make love in the middle of the day in the living room with no worries of being tapped on the ass by a child’s toy.
A loud knock at the door startled Lauren out of her contemplations. Kevin peeked into the bathroom and asked, “Are you taking a shower first this morning?”
“It doesn’t matter.” She said.
“Well, you can go ahead. I’ll shave while you’re in there and jump in after you’re done.”
Lauren nodded and then shifted out of the way so that Kevin could get to the sink. She then removed her clothes, set the water, and then entered the shower. Alone. Kevin was focused on his shave as the water began to cascade down her body. Being alone with her husband in the bathroom used to be a guaranteed quickie. She couldn’t remember the last time she and Kevin took a shower together. She was really missing the spontaneity of their early relationship years.
Lauren, having just sat her kids’ bowls of oatmeal in front of them, was pouring each of them a glass of orange juice when Kevin bounded down the stairs in his suit and tie. “Wow.” Kevin said. “Everyone is sitting quietly and eating. That’s new.”
“Don’t get excited.” Lauren said.
“Uh, oh. What happened?” Kevin asked.
“Sofia tried to steal my earrings.” Rose answered her dad, holding up the confiscated jewelry.
“I was borrowing them.” Sofia said.
“You have to ask before it is considered borrowing, Sofia.” Rose said.
“I knew you were just going to say ‘no’.” Sofia said.
“So why did you…”
“OK, OK.” Kevin interrupted Rose. “I’m sorry I asked.” He said as he looked at his wife with wide eyes.
“Fun morning.” Lauren said.
Kevin then kissed all of the kids and Lauren and then headed out to work. Since Kevin’s start time at work was thirty minutes before Laurens’ start time she got the privilege of dropping the kids off at school. Fortunately for her the girl’s school came first so she only had to endure their bickering for a few minutes before she could extricate them from her vehicle.
After dropping off Russell Lauren headed to work. She walked into her office, settled in behind her desk, and began making her way through a plethora of emails she had to address before the weekend. Just an hour into her job and Lauren was bored out of her mind. She sighed for maybe the 10th time that morning, checked the clock for probably the 12th time, and shook her head. The day was going to be interminable.
She then heard the chime from her cell phone. It was a text from Kevin. “I wish you were sitting in my lap right now.”
Lauren smiled. She needed a diversion. She responded, “You wouldn’t be getting much work done.”
“But you would.” Kevin said.
Lauren giggled as she rocked back in her office chair. She then looked down at her skirt and imagined her in it straddling her husband in an office chair, which made her hot. She then texted Kevin,
“Yes, I would. But I would make you work for it.”
Kevin then texted, “I don’t mind the work. My head fits underneath your lavender skirt just fine.”
Lauren smiled at the thought of Kevin noticing what she was wearing, which she didn’t think was the case. “You know you’re making me crazy.” She texted.
“Are you touching yourself?” Kevin asked.
Lauren immediately looked to see if anyone in the outer office was watching her, which no one was. She thought about raising up her skirt and touching the front of her panties but decided against it. “Are you trying to get me in trouble at work?”
“No. I just figured since I’m not there in person one of us should be enjoying your body.”
Lauren’s heart began to race. “I wish I was enjoying your body right now. You should have joined me in the shower this morning.”
“I’m sorry.” Kevin said. “I was running late. Missed opportunity. But I can make you wet now. Is that good?”
“You already have.” Lauren texted.
She then reached down to her knees and began to ease up her skirt. When she got the hem of her skirt to about half-thigh, she heard a knock at her door. It was her assistant, Kim. “Good morning. The staff meeting is in five minutes.”
Lauren pursed her lips and, under her desk, eased her skirt back down her thigh. “Thanks, Kim.”
Kevin then texted, “How wet? Could I just push right in or would I have to work you until you were ready for all of me?”
Lauren’s shoulders slumped. She then texted, “Oh, God, I really want to continue this. But I have a meeting in a couple of minutes.”
Kevin then said, “You should have told me that before you texted me about sitting in my lap.”
Lauren felt bad. Then she realized she had no reason to. “What??? YOU texted ME...Mr. Horny!”
“I did, didn’t I? Lick you later, baby.”
That text made her lips twitch. “You’re a monster!” She said. Talk to you later, baby.”
After sending the last text, Lauren forcefully threw her cell phone onto her desk in disgust. She then picked up a pen, a notepad, and her phone and left her office for the meeting.
Lauren hated Friday traffic. Not that any other day of the week was great but her commute home always took about ten minutes longer at the end of the week. It was almost like no one was in a hurry to get home for the weekend, which boggled her mind. It was all she could do to stop herself from getting out of the car and jogging home.
As she sat at a stand still - traffic wasn’t moving for no apparent reason - she looked over at a local coffee shop and saw a young couple sitting at a table on the patio. They were holding hands and gazing into one another’s eyes. It didn’t even seem as if they were talking. They seemed to have nowhere to go and not a care in the world. “No kids.” Lauren said as traffic began to move once again...very slowly.
When Lauren got a couple of minutes away from her home she briefly imagined storming into the house, dragging Kevin upstairs to their bedroom, and having her way with him. Very briefly. She then wondered to herself if there was even a small chance the kids would be in a calm state once she got there. Kevin left work before Lauren and picked the kids up from school. Typically by the time Lauren got home the kids were virtually swinging from the ceiling fans. Kevin wasn’t exactly a disciplinarian.
Sure enough, when Lauren pulled into the driveway she was met by Rose who was near tears and holding out her opened hand. Lauren reluctantly rolled down her window. “Sofia snuck my favorite necklace in her backpack and wore it to school today!” Rose said.
Lauren looked confused. “I thought you caught her and took that away from her this morning?”
“That was my earrings.” Rose said as Lauren exited her car. “This is my necklace. My favorite one that Grandma gave me for my birthday. Why is she always stealing my things, Mom?” Rose was nearly inconsolable.
Lauren hunched her shoulders. “Little sisters do that, Rose. She just wants to be like you. Wear what you wear.”
“But it’s not fair.” Rose said.
Lauren nodded, putting her hands around her daughter as they walked toward the house. “I know. But you have to think of it positively. She could not like you.”
“I wish she didn’t.” Rose said, darting into the house and to her room.
Kevin then greeted his wife at the door. “Welcome home.”
“I already got the welcome wagon treatment from Rose.” Lauren said.
“I’m sorry, baby.” Kevin said, putting his hand around his wife’s waist and kissing her on the cheek.
Lauren then grimaced as Russell ran his head into her stomach, hugging her legs. “Hi, mommy!”
Lauren rubbed his head, trying not to show him that she was in pain. “Hi, Russ.”
He then ran off, leaving Lauren to catch her breath. She looked up at Kevin, who seemed concerned. “I’m fine.” She said. He then chuckled and shook his head. “Remember back when we didn’t have any kids?” She then leaned toward his ear and spoke softly. “How easy was it for us to sneak to our room anytime we wanted for sex?”
Kevin smiled. “Well, first, we didn’t have to sneak. Second, we usually didn’t make it to the bedroom.”
“God, I miss those days.” Lauren said.
Kevin then tugged on her arm. “Come on.” He said, beginning to lead her up the stairs.
“Hi, Mom.” Lauren heard, turning around to see Sofia at the foot of the stairs.
“Hi, sweetie.” Lauren said. “Do me a favor and stop torturing your sister. OK?”
Sofia’s downcast eyes and dour expression struck Lauren. “What’s wrong, sweetie?”
“Why doesn’t Rose like me?” Sofia asked, tears beginning to stream down her face.
Lauren looked sympathetically at her daughter. She then looked back at her husband. Kein smiled. “It’s OK. Go ahead.”
Lauren shook her head. She then headed back down stairs to tend to her younger daughter.
Kevin and Lauren were laying in bed together watching TV when Kevin began to doze off. Lauren looked over at her husband. She then sighed, turning her attention back to the television. “What’s wrong?” Kevin asked.
“Nothing.” Lauren said.
“That’s like the fourth or fifth time you have sighed since we laid down.” Kevin said. “What’s wrong?”
“Just bored with life.” Lauren said as Kevin sat up in the bed. “We seem to be in a rut. Every day is the same thing. We get up, get ready, get the kids ready, I take them to school, we work, you pick them up, we eat dinner, put them to bed, and lay down watching TV until we fall asleep. On the weekends we go with the kids to the park or the movies.”
Kevin looked at his wife for a few seconds. He then said, “You’re still horny from work. Aren’t you?”
Lauren chuckled and shoved her husband in the arm. “That’s not what this is about. But even with sex it isn’t like it was. It seems like we are having less and less of it with the kids running around. Even this evening Sofia interrupted us.”
“That’s life with kids, baby.” Kevin said.
Lauren looked at him. She then put her head down. “I guess you’re right.”
“Hey...” Kevin said, “...I was going to surprise you with this, but we are going to drop the kids off at Mom and Dad’s tomorrow morning.”
“Why?” Lauren asked.
“I got a call yesterday from Brian.” Kevin said.
“Really?” Lauren said, perking up as she sat up in the bed. “He and Ann want to play tennis?”
“Yep.” Kevin said.
“Wow. It’s been like a year since we have played tennis with them.”
“Probably.” Kevin said. “I know it has been awhile.”
Lauren nodded her head, smiling widely. “That’s going to be fun. Thank you, baby.”
“Of course.” Kevin said.
“Grandma!” Russell yelled out as he ran toward Kevin’s mom.
“Hi, hun.” She said, careful not to be headbutted by her grandson as she embraced him.
“Hi, Grandma.” Sofia said as she walked into her grandparent’s home, lifting her head and brushing back her hair to draw attention to the necklace she was wearing.
“Hi, there.” Grandma said. “What a nice necklace. It looks like the one I got Rose for her birthday.”
“It is, Grandma.” Rose said. “She wants to dress like me.”
“Oh, OK, baby.” Grandma said. “Well, it was nice of you to share with her.”
Grandma then looked up with wide eyes at her son and daughter-in-law.
Lauren rolled her eyes before hugging her mother-in-law. “Hi, Debbie. Thanks so much for watching the kids.”
“Of course.” Debbie said. “It’s never a problem. You know that. What are you two going to be doing this morning again?”
“Playing tennis.” Lauren said with a big smile.
Debbie smiled back at her. “You sound excited.”
“Very.” Lauren said.
“You need a break from the kids, don’t you?” Debbie said.
“God, yes.” Lauren said as they both laughed.
“Is that Kev?” Kevin’s father, Lee, called from the back of the house.
“Yeah.” Debbie called back. “I think your dad needs you to help him with something in the backyard, baby.”
Lee walked into the living room and greeted the rest of the family. He then handed his son a pair of gloves. “Kev, I have some two by fours in the yard that I need put in the shed if you have a few minutes. My back is killing me and I figure since I fed you for 18 years and sent you to college you could do this for me.”
Lauren laughed out loud. Kevin dropped his head and smiled. He then looked at his father. “Of course, Dad. Since you asked so nicely.” Kevin then looked at Lauren. “Come with me.”
The two of them talked as Kevin worked up a light sweat moving the dozen or so two by fours into the shed. When he got done he took his gloves off and wiped his forehead with his forearm.
Lauren placed her hand on Kevin’s chest. “Oooh, your shirt is all sweaty. It was sexy watching you move all that wood.” She said as she began to rub his chest and arms. “You’re so manly.”
“You like manly, huh?” Kevin said. He then grabbed his wife by the upper arms and quickly spun her around. He then put his arms around her waist and pulled her to him, kissing her neck as he began to slide his hand down the front of her shorts.
Lauren pulled away from Kevin, pushing his hand away from her. He simply pulled her close once again and resumed kissing and licking her neck as he slid his hand back down inside her shorts.
“Kevin, what if your dad comes back here?” Lauren asked as her knees weakened at the feel of his tongue on her ear.
“Baby,” Kevin said. “...when dad sends me back here it’s so he can go take a nap.”
Kevin’s hand then made its way past Lauren’s shorts and inside her panties. He gently placed his middle finger on her clit and began to rub it which weakened her legs even more. He then slid his finger down between her wet lips and brought the moisture back to her clit, gliding up and down it over and over until Lauren began to softly moan.
“Kev!” Debbie shouted through the back door to her son, slicing through their sexual mood like a hot knife.
Lauren jumped away from her husband and began to straighten her clothes and fix her hair before they emerged from the shed. “Yeah, Ma!” Kevin called back. “We’re coming!”
He then leaned over to Lauren and said, “Well, at least you were until we were interrupted.”
Lauren hit Kevin on the arm before saying, “Would you come on before they send someone for us.”
Kevin and Lauren came back into the house through the back door just as his dad emerged from his bedroom. “You’re done?”
“Yes, sir.” Kevin said, awkwardly holding his right hand out.
“What’s wrong?” Lee asked his son, pointing to his hand.
Kevin looked like he had been caught doing something wrong. “Oh...I got my hands in something sticky in the shed.”
Lauren almost gasped as her eyes grew wide.
“It’s fine. I just need to wash my hands before we go.” Kevin said.
As he walked to the kitchen sink he discreetly patted Lauren on the behind as he passed her, making her body jolt.
“Are you OK, Mommy?” Sofia asked, seeing Lauren jump.
Lauren chuckled. “Yeah, baby. Mommy is fine.”
It was a beautiful, sunny Saturday morning. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky. The temperature was already about 80 degrees but a slight wind took the edge off of the heat. Kevin and Lauren drove with the windows down and their music full blast. Still, Lauren was beginning to again feel melancholy.
Though the tennis date was a welcome change of pace - and she was thoroughly enjoying the sexual teasing Kevin and she had been doing with one another the past couple of days - Lauren understood it to be an anomaly. Not a permanent end to the rut.
She knew that having kids necessitated a more predictable, scheduled existence. That didn’t stop her for longing for the days without kids when she and Kevin were free to explore one another’s bodies - and the world in general - with impunity. Then, of course, she felt guilty because she was thankful for her kids. Her mixed emotions made it difficult for her to enjoy the times when she and Kevin did get away alone together.
Kevin was having no such deep thoughts as he eagerly drove them to their tennis double date. Pulling up to a stop light, he turned toward Lauren. He then lowered the radio volume and asked, “What’s on your mind, sweetie?”
Lauren looked at her husband, temporarily jarred from her catatonic state. “Oh, nothing. Just…you know…life.”
“You’re still feeling like you were last night?” Kevin asked.
“Maybe. A little.” Lauren said. “No, I’m fine, Kev. Just thinking.”
Kevin nodded and returned the music to full volume as they continued down the road.
Kevin’s excitement was obvious once the tennis center was visible. He pulled into the parking lot, looked at Lauren, smiled widely, and playfully squeezed her knee. She giggled. Kevin then quickly leaped out of the car and bounded toward the trunk to retrieve their tennis equipment.
Kevin really did make her happy. And Lauren felt she had a great life. She exhaled deeply. She was thankful for her husband and her kids. She didn’t want to be ungrateful. She was just longing for some excitement. Some spontaneity. Something to make her feel alive.
Her thoughts were interrupted by Kevin's knock on her window. She turned to look at him, and then flinched away from the window. His lips were pressed on the glass and his eyes were bugged. She couldn't help but, once again, laugh.
Lauren stepped out of the car and looked up at the cloudless sky. She closed her eyes and allowed the warm sunlight to wash over her body. “It's a beautiful day.” she said.
“I know.” Kevin said, quickly adding, “Let's go play some tennis!”
Lauren smirked at him but he was already headed to the entrance of the tennis center. Lauren shook her head before following him.
As Lauren turned the corner to go to the woman's locker room she looked the opposite way toward the men's locker room. Kevin was already out of site. She figured he would be dressed and outside hitting tennis balls against the wall for a few minutes before she was ready.
Lauren was feeling better as she entered the locker room. She was excited about their game of tennis. It was only nine o'clock that Sunday morning – a slow day for tennis at the center – so she was alone in the locker room.
Lauren knew Ann and Brian would be a few minutes late...they always were. She decided not to waste time so that she could play tennis with Kevin for a little while. Plus, Kevin was always very flirtatious when she was in her tennis skirt and she was looking forward to that as well.
Lauren placed her gym bag on a bench sitting in front of her locker and unzipped it. She pulled out her new tennis outfit – an orange and white pleated tennis skirt and a white t-shirt that had a large orange “peace” symbol on the front. She also pulled out her sports bra.
Lauren kicked off her sandals and pulled off her shorts. She was wearing plain black cotton panties. She wanted to wear something sexier to tease her husband, but being that they were playing with another couple she thought better of it. She removed her shirt and then unhooked her bra, letting out the obligatory exhale at the relief of her breasts being free of the dreaded under wire. She put these clothes back into her gym bag, pulling out her white socks and orange sneakers.
Lauren closed her gym bag and put it in her locker. She then slid on her tennis skirt. She stood straight up and looked down at the skirt noticing how short it was. She was both hating and appreciating the lack of a full length mirror in the locker room. She placed her left foot on the bench and pulled at the bottom of the skirt. It wasn't very long at all. She then rubbed her legs to ensure they were smooth from the morning's fresh shave in the shower.
“Hi.” She heard in a very deep voice, quickly covering her breast and snatching her head around to see her husband admiring her body.
“Kevin!” she said, smiling with big eyes. “You scared me. What are you doing in here?”
“Thanking God that I get to sleep next to you every night.” he said as he slowly moved toward her.
His answer made her blush...and a little hot. “Really.” she responded.
Kevin came up behind her and placed his left hand on her thigh, slowly rubbing it while his right hand was on her bare waist, his body pressed firmly against hers. With his lips an inch from her ear, and in his deepest, smoothest voice, he said, “Sometimes I forget how beautiful you are.”
Lauren's heart leaped and energy surged through her entire body. Her head fell back onto Kevin's shoulder. He slid his left hand from her thigh to her waist. His right hand then slid from her waist and down the front of her tennis skirt. He raised it and began rubbing the moist spot on her panties with his middle finger.
Even through her panties he could feel her clitoris swelling and her lips separating under the gentle touch of his hand. He then slid his left hand from her waist up to her left breast and began to massage it. Lauren was in ecstasy. She reached behind herself and into Kevin's shorts to feel his manhood. He was very hard as she wrapped her hand around it and stroked the length of him.
Kevin then suddenly stopped. “What?!?” Lauren asked, thoroughly enjoying the moment and not wanting it to end. Kevin backed away from her. He walked around in front of her and knelt down. He reached with both hands up and beneath her tennis skirt, grasped the ribbing of her panties, and began to slowly pull them down.
“Kevin!” Lauren said in a hushed but forceful voice. “What if someone walks in?”
“I locked the door.” he said as he eased her underwear around the knee still bent on the bench and down to that foot.
“What if someone knocks?”
“Don't answer.” he said, sliding her panties under the foot on the bench, then down the leg on the floor, letting them rest on top of that foot.
“Kevin, they could unlock the door.”
With her tennis skirt raised to just below his lips, Kevin looked up at Lauren and answered her last objection. “Then we'll stop.” With that, he ducked his head underneath her skirt and let it rest on the back of his head. She felt his hands grasp the top of her thighs where they met her bottom. The next thing she felt was the tip of his tongue on her clitoris.
Lauren was about to ask him what would happen if their friends had come dressed and were already outside. All thoughts of them left as Kevin, after a few strokes with his tongue, slipped Lauren's clit between his lips and began to gently suck.
Lauren spread her legs wider, keeping her left leg on the bench. She placed one hand on her thigh to balance. The other hand she placed on the back of Kevin's head, caressing it through her skirt. Her mouth hung open as she began to rock her body to the rhythm of his movement.
Kevin altered sucking with licking the underside of Lauren's clit. After a few seconds, he allowed his tongue to slide down to her lips, parting them with it. He stroked between her lips with his tongue a few times, enjoying the feel of her increasing wetness. Kevin could feel Lauren's thighs begin to involuntarily twitch. He then slid his tongue back up to her clit, flicking it with the tip of his tongue before sucking and licking it again.
Kevin paused. He then lowered his head and thrust his tongue between Lauren's lips and into her space. She moaned and her thighs tightened further as he tightly gripped her butt with his large hands and pulled her onto his tongue over and over. He then held her still as he vigorously moved his tongue around, first inside her, then onto her lips, then inside once again. Lauren's breaths became erratic as she struggled to keep her balance on the bench.
With his right hand clenching her butt he pulled her crotch tight to his face. He quickly moved his tongue inside her hot wetness pushing it as deep as it could go, thrusting it inside her as he slowly massaging her clit with his left thumb. Lauren couldn't speak. She tried to continue to hold the back of his head but her fingers were extended and taut and she could only keep her palms pressed against the fabric of her skirt that rested over Kevin's head. She let out a soft moan as she began to cum with Kevin's tongue still thrashing inside her.
Once Lauren's breathing returned to normal – that is, when she began breathing again – Kevin raised his head from under her tennis skirt. Lauren looked at him, his lips glistening from pleasuring her, and she shivered from the sheer enjoyment of it all.
Kevin stood up and moved behind Lauren. She raised the back of her skirt slightly, giving him an unobstructed view of her perfectly rounded behind. She bent over slightly in anticipation of his touch. She didn't have to wait long as he began to rub her soaking wet lips with his tip.
Lauren, feeling his warmth, moved her body back toward him causing him to effortlessly glide inside her. The feel of her soft, hotness wrapped around the top half of his shaft excited Kevin so that he thrust the rest of his steely hardness inside her.
Lauren gasped, then called his name in a soft, barely audible whisper. Kevin, his hands firmly grasping Lauren’s hips, began to steadily and smoothly stroke her body, pumping her time and again. With each stroke, he pulled out until just his tip was inside her, then he thrust back in until her bottom was bumping against his crotch.
Kevin continued to stroke Lauren’s body for a few moments, then slowly slid himself all the way inside her once more, holding himself tightly against her. With one hand on her hips, he reached around her with his other hand and again massaged her clitoris. He then started pumping her body with short but very firm strokes.
The force of Kevin’s thrusts caused Lauren to throw one of her arms on a nearby locker to brace herself. He placed both his hands back on her hips and began to thrust even harder, sliding himself halfway out of Lauren and then thrusting against and deep inside her time and again as he pulled her hips back toward him.
Over and over he thrust himself inside her, filling her body with himself until she exploded once more. When Lauren stopped pulsing on the inside and shaking on the outside, Kevin grasped her waist and pulled her upright, sliding out of her. He then asked, “Are you ready to play some tennis?”
Through bated breath, Lauren giggled, and then said, “Yeah.”
Kevin and Lauren, dressed to play tennis, held hands while walking out from the locker rooms and onto the courts. Lauren was smiling. She and Kevin’s tryst was an unexpected but very pleasant diversion.
Lauren looked at the time on her cell phone. It was a few minutes past ten. She then looked out onto the courts. There was a couple already hitting with one another. “That can’t be Ann and Brian already, can it?” She said to Kevin.
Kevin, a confused expression on his face, checked the time himself as they moved closer and closer to the couple. The man from the couple then looked up at them. He raised his tennis racket over his head. “We beat you out here!” Brian yelled.
Kevin and Lauren looked at one another and then back at their friends. Ann, smiling, said, “I can’t believe it. I don’t think this has ever happened. When are you two ever late to anything?”
Kevin and Lauren chuckled as they greeted their friends with hugs.
“Well…” Kevin said, “...we had to drop the kids off.”
“Yeah.” Lauren said. “And...you know...traffic.”
“Brutal.” Kevin said.
Ann and Brian briefly looked at one another. “Traffic? On a Saturday morning?” Ann said.
Lauren flashed a plastic smile and hunched her shoulders.
Ann then said, “OK, you two are acting weird. But it’s been almost a year since we have played so let’s get going.”
“Yeah, let’s get this over with.” Brian said. “I don’t know why we are so anxious to come out here and get beat again. We always lose to you two. I assume you still have that rocket serve of yours?”
Kevin then raised his arm to flex his right bicep. “Got it right here.”
“Great” Brian said as he shook his head.
During the entire game Kevin had a tough time landing his hard serve. He finally resorted to his more hittable second serve which Brian relished. With Brian and Ann one point from winning the match Kevin unleashed a half-hearted version of his hard serve. Brian hit the ball with a topspin forehand down the right line and past Lauren. Kevin ran as fast as his weary legs would carry him but he couldn’t reach Brian’s shot. They all watched the ball continued to bounce past Kevin as he slowed his run.
“Are you kidding me?!?” Brian said, his hands raised victoriously in the air and his racket over his head.
Ann, smiling widely, ran up to her husband and gave him a hug.
Kevin, winded, rested his hands on his bent knees as he looked up at his wife. Lauren giggled.
“We finally beat you guys!” Brian said.
“Yeah, you got us.” Lauren said.
“What happened, Kevin?” Brian asked as he and Ann walked over to their vanquished foes. “I’ve never known you to be that off your game before.”
Kevin rose up, finally catching his breath. “Oh...who knows.” He then looked at Lauren who was still smiling.
Ann looked at the couple and then looked at Brian and smiled. “Oh, I know what happened. Sex the night before playing tennis can take it out of you.”
Brian’s eyebrows lifted as he looked at Kevin and Lauren.
Kevin chuckled. “Well, I can tell you this. It wasn’t sex last night that wore us out.”
Kevin then looked at Lauren who began to blush as she tried unsuccessfully to suppress a wide smile.
