Expanding Horizons
By Rainne


"Abby, I… I've never done anything like this before."

"Shh, Kate… it'll be okay. I promise."

Kate looked up into Abby's eyes, her expression worried. "You'll watch out for me?"

Abby kissed Kate's nose, leaving a smudge of black lipstick that she wiped off with a finger. "I will always take care of you."

Kate reached, paused, reached, and paused again. "Abby, are you sure?"

Abby laughed. "Trust me!"

"I'm trying." Taking a deep breath, Kate reached again. She lifted the bullet-shaped tube, twisted it, and applied it to her lips.

Once she was done, she turned her head several times, examining her reflection in the mirror. "Hmm."

"Well?" Abby asked eagerly. "Do you like it?"

"It's so red."

"Well, it's supposed to be!" Abby exclaimed. "It's Viva Glam."

"I don't know, Abby…"

"Just… try it for tonight. Okay? If you really don't like it, then don't wear it any more."

Kate sighed. "All right."

Abby wrapped her arms around her, hugging her tight. "See? That wasn't too hard, was it? Now come on; we're gonna be late."

Several hours later, they stumbled back into Abby's apartment, drunk and giggling and silly. "See?" Abby slurred, pointing a finger at Kate's face. "I told you that lipstick was a good color for you."

"You didn't tell me that man was a woman!" Kate exclaimed.

Abby giggled. "You haven't figured out yet that all of my friends are more than what they seem to be?"

Kate studied Abby. "I know you are more than what you seem to be."

"Well, of course I am," Abby said, grinning. "That's why I'm Abby."

"And I, for one, am glad you are Abby!" Kate stumbled forward and wrapped her arms around her friend in an impulsive hug.

"Me, too," Abby said, one hand moving up to cup Kate's jaw. "And I'm pretty glad you're Kate."

Their eyes locked, and for a moment, neither of them breathed. Then Abby leaned down, pressing her lips to Kate's. Kate moaned, her arms coming up to wrap around Abby's neck and her hands sliding into Abby's hair. Abby teased Kate's lips with her tongue until they opened and then she was in Kate's mouth, and Kate was moaning again and pressing herself tightly against Abby.

Abby fell into a chair nearby, never letting go of Kate's lips. Kate clambered into the chair with Abby, little hungry sounds escaping her mouth, and helped Abby unbutton her shirt, pushing it aside and then tossing it to the floor while Abby slid the straps of Kate's bra down off her shoulders, exposing Kate's breasts to Abby's hungry eyes.

When Abby pulled away from her mouth, Kate gave a soft whimper of loss, but that was soon followed by a soft moan of pleasure when Abby latched onto her right breast, licking and sucking until the nipple was tall and hard, then moving to the left to administer the same treatment.

"Oh, God, Abby," Kate whispered. "Please."

Abby's hands slid up Kate's denim-clad thighs, hooking into the waistband of her jeans as she looked up at Kate through her lashes. "Kate… are you sure?"

"I'm sure," Kate replied, then swallowed. "Only… I've never done this before, Abby. With a woman, I mean."

Abby grinned, leaning up to capture Kate's lips with her own. "It'll be okay. I promise."

Kate smiled into Abby's eyes. "You'll watch out for me?"

Abby stood, setting Kate on her feet and leading her by the hand into her bedroom. "I will always take care of you."

They undressed each other slowly, sharing kisses and caresses along the way, and when they were both naked, Abby took Kate's hand again and led her to the side of the coffin.

Kate swallowed hard. "Abby… are you sure?"

Abby laughed, drawing Kate into the confined space with her. "Trust me."

"I do trust you," Kate replied, and then no more words were needed.
