The Aspen Vacation Ch. 01
August in south Texas is not a pleasant time of year. The heat and humidity is stifling driving everyone indoors. When we were offered the use of a small house in Aspen for a week, my wife Erin and I jumped at the opportunity. It took some shuffling of things at work but we were both able to clear our calendars.
To save money and to make it something of an adventure, we decided to drive instead of fly. It was going to be a long drive but I hadn't been on a road trip in years and Erin had never experienced one. The plan was to leave very early Friday morning in Erin's X5, overnight along the way then make it in to Aspen the next day.
We had packed the car the night before so we were awake and on the road in short order. Fortunately for us, a case Erin was working on had settled on Wednesday. It had been the only work issue hanging over our heads so getting it wrapped up had put her in a great mood.
Erin and I were both in our late twenties. She is a lawyer for a mid-size firm and is on track for partner. I am a regional leader in equipment sales in the oil & gas industry. We had met through friends almost five years ago just as she was coming out of law school. We dated and were married in less than a year and fell too quickly into the routine of work and urban living. We had talked about starting a family and Erin had brought up the "biological clock" several times. Although she presented it in a humorous way, I knew she serious and in reality I felt I was close to being ready too. I thought this was likely our last childless vacation for a long time.
I've never been that turned on by blondes always preferring brunettes and Erin fit my desires almost perfectly. She struck me so profoundly when we first met that it took half the evening for me to gather my composure and talk to her without sounding like some needy idiot. Erin is 5'7" tall with shoulder length raven hair and is slender, weighing 125 pounds. She is a 34 C on top, with dark eyes and has nice full juicy lips that I love to kiss.
On top of her natural good looks, she loves to workout. She hits the gym over lunch at least 3 times a week and runs 3 miles at least twice a week. The result is a very well toned body, especially her butt and legs which are not only shapely but rock hard too. I am 6 ft tall and weigh 180 pounds with receding medium brown hair. I try to stay in shape as well and often will run with Erin if schedules permit.
"I'm bored." Erin announced turning to smile at me not even thirty minutes into our trip.
"Well you better find something to keep you occupied this is a long road trip." I reminded.
"How long again?" She asked smiling and trying to be cute.
"Two days my love. We will make northwest Texas or New Mexico this evening and then drive into Colorado tomorrow." I explained for at least the third time.
Erin poured me a cup of coffee from a thermos and we drank and idly chatted for the next few hours. Driving on freeways is fast but generally boring and it was certainly the case here. We would drive for a couple hours then stop to use the bathroom, get a snack and stretch. The miles slowly ticked by and by mid-afternoon we were heading into the Texas panhandle. The land was now very open and dry and the traffic was much lighter.
Erin had taken some short spells at driving but mostly had read magazines and listened to her IPod. I had expected some discussion on the "biological clock" thing but so far it had not come up, which was fine for me. I wanted this vacation to be about fun.
When 5:00 PM hit I asked Erin if she wanted to stop to eat. She declined saying she wasn't particularly hungry and would rather just get to the hotel.
"How much farther till we stop?" she asked.
"Couple hours. About the time it gets dark."
From nowhere, I felt her hand on my leg stroking with the clear intent to arouse. Looking at her I saw she had the impish smile that indicated something was churning in her head.
"I'm horny." She announced.
"Well an odd time for that to come up." I laughed.
"A girl can't always control these things." She replied smiling even more broadly.
Erin is pretty conservative and only gets in a playful mood like this on rare occasions. I love it when she does and wish it would happen more often. I always encouraged her but it never seemed to have much effect at the time. It just seemed to happen when it happened. but when she did get in an aroused mood it was always lots of fun.
She had been intimate with two men before we met. One was a long-term boyfriend but I still hadn't considered her as very experienced when we started dating. She was always responsive but usually wanted me to lead in our love making.
"We can be naughty when we stop." I told her as if it was a promise.
"You better be naughty. It's been over a week. You haven't been taking care of business!" She said with feigned indignantion.
I realized she was right, that it had been a long time. I was sure we were going to make love last night but Erin fell asleep early. I put it down to the adrenaline drop from her case ending. However, with the way she was acting now I was becoming very hopeful about this vacation.
"Why do we need to stop?" She persisted.
"Well this console and the bucket seats aren't very conducive to sex." I said pointing to the mass between us.
Undeterred, she leaned over and put her hand on my crotch squeezing gently. To do so though required her to lift out of her seat.
"Sweetie, you're going to cause a wreck." I told her.
"I just wanted to get your pants off." She said with a fake pout.
I laughed and we drove on in silence for a few more miles when a thought struck me.
"Why don't you get naked?" I asked.
"Why? Alone?" She answered confused.
"So I can see you. You know how much I enjoy seeing your naked body." I replied.
"What about you?" She asked looking at me with her big brown eyes.
"No sweetie, just you." I answered.
"That's no fun." She replied using the fake pout again.
I gave her a hopeful stare wondering if she would give in. It would definitely be out of character but I thought maybe she would see it as a vacation adventure. I knew she was in a playful mood.
"No, someone might see." She finally responded.
"Okay, that's fine." I said knowing it was never wise to push her.
"You really want me to get naked?" She asked after a minute of silence.
"Yes." I replied feebly trying to hold back my smile.
Erin looked around on the four lane road and I think took some comfort seeing that the traffic was light. At that moment, no other cars were within a half mile.
She reached down and unlaced her tennis shoes and I felt my cock getting hard thinking it might actually happen. These came off along with her sockettes which she placed beneath her legs. Next she undid her khaki walking shorts and pushed them down revealing a red thong. She unbuttoned her sleeveless blouse and slipped it off and when she was finished she was sitting there in just the thong and a sheer white bra.
Up till then neither of us has spoken as she performed her striptease. She looked around again confirming that no cars were close.
"I can't believe I'm doing this. I must really love you." She said and shot me the impish grin again.
"You're making me hard." I told her trying to encourage.
"Let me see." She demanded.
"No, not until you're naked." I replied now thinking I could bargain.
The impish grin was replaced with a fake scowl but she reached behind her and unclasped the bra. She let the bra fall forward in her laps revealing the breasts I love so much - firm, with small nipples that turn up slightly at the end of her breasts.
"Damn I love those." I told her sincerely.
Obviously pleased with the compliment and smiling she wiggled the thong over her hips then pushed it down her legs and used her feet to kick it the rest of the way off. Now I got to see Erin's lovely shaved pussy. She had only started shaving it about three months ago when she found out during a girl's night out that all her friends did. I remember her asking me if I wanted her to shave and how I had to pretend indifference at first when in fact I wanted to scream "YES."
She looked beautiful sitting there but I could see she was also nervous.
"Give me your clothes." I demanded putting my hand out.
She handed everything to me without arguing and I reached back and put them on the back seat.
"You're acting a little dominant." She said giving me an odd look.
"Am I?" I answered smiling back.
For the next fifteen minutes, I drove so that the car was never passed by another vehicle going in the same direction. In the light traffic it wasn't that difficult but it allowed Erin to settle in and relax. We chatted and listened to the radio. I had to adjust the A/C so she didn't get cold and after a while, I think she almost forgot she was naked.
In the distance, in my mirror, I could see a car coming up fast. It was coming too fast to stay in front of without running up on some cars that were ahead. So, I pulled into the right lane and slowed so it would go by quickly. I knew that there was no way anyone in the car could see Erin since we were so much higher still I was worried about her freaking out so I decided to be extra cautious.
The car, a beat up ten year old red sedan went by and Erin's head jerked up. She shot me a look of concern but I quickly explained that there was no way they could see inside and she seemed to accept the explanation. In fact, I built some credibility with my efforts by moving over.
I reached over and patted her naked thigh and Erin moved her hips encouraging more contact but I drew back.
"Later sweetie." I said stifling a laugh.
"Ass." She said reaching to the A/C controls and turning it down further.
We drove on and the occasional car would go by which no longer seemed to concern Erin. She read more, listened to music and we chatted some. On several occasions I asked her how she liked being naked and each time she replied that is was for me although I was pretty sure she was enjoying too.
The sun was low and the car had gotten warm inside since she adjusted the A/C. I noticed that she had grown quiet and looking over I saw that her head was tilted back and her eyes were closed. The way her mouth hung partly open I assumed she was dozing. Well that's probably a good thing I thought. After all, vacation is about rest and this part of the trip was the toughest. Once we got in the mountains it would be more interesting.
After a few minutes, I looked back to see an eighteen wheeler catching up quickly. I decided to speed up to keep the distance between us. I went to five miles over the limit and still the truck was overtaking us although now more slowly. With a sigh, I thought to myself I can risk a ticket or let him pass. Deciding to let him pass, I moved to the right lane and slowed. The truck bore down from behind, directly behind me, and was about to move to the left lane to pass when some evil impulse emanating from my groin acted.
I pulled back into the left lane and sped up intending to let the truck pass on Erin's side at a slow rate and get a cheap thrill while she was sleeping. The BMW is very quiet and I hoped that the truck would pass without her realizing.
My nervousness made me speed up several times before I finally let the truck approach our car. It was on the back bumper edging forward very slowly. I thought maybe he wouldn't look and if he did maybe he wouldn't see because of the glare of the low sun.
It was a livestock trailer with a Peterbilt truck, apparently empty, heading back to wherever home was. The front wheels were slowly inching forward, now even with the passenger door. Slowly, they continued overtaking us, my foot on the accelerator being the dynamic that subconsciously controlled the pace of closure. Realizing it, I let off and the truck moved forward quickly with the cab passing Erin's window.
I'm not sure whether the next move was me or the truck driver's but within seconds the truck's window was right next to Erin's keeping perfect pace. Even though I couldn't see him, I knew he was feasting on Erin now seeing her completely nude below his elevated seat. Thankfully, there was only a background whine of his tires on the road that gave away his presence. So far, it had not been enough to attract her attention.
After driving together for a short distance, I started watching the odometer. A mile and then two and we were still in synch. We were driving fast enough that no one was approaching from behind and the unseen driver was getting a perfect view of my luscious wife completely naked.
I was concentrating on the road when I heard Erin gasp and looking over I saw her hands trying to cover her breasts and pussy.
"What are you doing?" She hissed more than yelled but her anger was clear.
I immediately dropped back and the truck began to slow too but I wouldn't allow him back alongside. Erin unsurprisingly was giving me a harsh stare.
"What the hell! I mean what the hell!" She exclaimed her voice rising.
"Okay, sorry." Was all I could think of to say.
"You're not sorry at all. You did it on purpose and you liked it!" She accused me as she saw me smirking.
I was now going about 50 mph and the truck, realizing the show was over, was now moving away.
"You let him see your wife naked you pervert." She continued.
When I didn't say anything she went on.
"Hell, pull up again and I'll play with myself for him." She said now very agitated.
When I didn't respond she said "You're actually thinking about it aren't you?"
"Well Erin he has no idea who we are." I said to her partially playing but partially serious too.
Erin reached for her clothes in the back seat but I caught her arm and stopped her.
"No, not yet." I commanded.
I had never done anything remotely like this and the look she gave me was part confusion, part anger but also held a bit of curiosity.
"Do you want him to see me again?" She asked reading my mind.
"Yeah." I replied after a long pause.
"Why?" She asked and I never realized a simple one word question could be so hard to answer. It took me a bit to gather my thoughts.
"Well I guess it's different and wild. And we are on vacation." I answered feebly not capable of putting into words why the thought aroused me after even a longer pause.
The truck was now a half mile in front of our car and continuing to move away.
"You didn't even discuss it with me. You were just sneaky." She scolded and she was right of course.
"I was just playing." Was all I could think of to say.
"At my expense!" Erin exclaimed.
"You're right. I'm sorry." I answered realizing it was best to tactically retreat.
"You're just sorry you got caught! What you really want is to do it again." She challenged me.
"No, never mind. I was wrong." I said.
There was a long silence and the truck continued to move away from us until it was barely visible. I was worried I had bit too bold and would have to deal with the consequences. But, I also was wondering what was going through the mind of the truck driver.
"You shouldn't be sneaky." She finally said scolding me not for my desire but for not discussing it with her.
"Would you have let me?" I asked challenging her with my eyes locked on hers.
There was a silence that lasted several seconds before she spoke. "I'll do what you want."
There was a strange look in her eyes, one that I couldn;t recall seeing before. Had it actually excited her too? It must have some I thought to myself as I continued to stare. At least, I rationalized it that way when I pushed the accelerator down.
It took a couple minutes to catch back up and I wanted so badly to break the silence and say something funny or witty but my mouth was dry and Erin seemed to be struggling with the same issue. So, we closed the gap in silence.
The trucker clearly saw us coming back because he suddenly slowed the rig. Drawing near, I slowed to match his speed and the last few yards to draw even with his cab seemed to take forever.
Erin was looking straight ahead but her nipples were erect.
"Relax, sweetie." I said trying to ease things but all I got was a nervous look.
We finally got alongside and after several seconds of Erin looking straight ahead I saw her glance up at the driver. A few seconds later she did it again.
"What does he look like?" I asked.
"Older, 40s with short hair and a beard. He's wearing a cap too." She described with short forced breaths.
I thought that this could describe about 50 percent of the males in the country.
"Is he looking at you?" I asked.
"Yes." She responded quickly.
"What's he doing?" I asked forcing myself to concentrate on the driving.
"Just looking. Staring." She said.
"Does he want you?" I asked.
"I don't know." She whispered.
"Spread you legs wider." I said to her expecting a bad reaction.
Instead, she settled into the seat more and opened her legs. This allowed me to see her pussy and I could tell she was very wet.
"You're soaked." I said unable to hide my surprise.
"Please stop this now." She implored.
I realized that I had pushed pretty hard and it was time to back off so I slowed down and let the truck move away.
"Thank you." I said to her before she could speak.
"Did that turn you on?" Erin asked me.
"Yeah, it did." I admitted.
I wanted to ask her the same thing but held my tongue knowing the answer already and deciding it was the wrong time to press.
"I'm putting my clothes on now." She announced a few minutes later.
"Not yet." I said to her.
"You have to kiss me first."
She looked down then smiled then leaned over to kiss me. It started as a deep kiss and got only deeper before I finally had to break away or risk crashing.
"You're special." I said to her.
"Why" She asked fishing for more.
"A gorgeous sophisticated and educated woman who will let her guard down and play like you did is every man's perfect fantasy." I explained.
"You won't hate me in the morning?" She asked giving me a vulnerable look.
"You might not be able to walk in the morning?" I replied giving her a huge smile.
Erin started to put her clothes on.
"No bra or panties, okay?
"Okay" she answered.
Forth-five minutes later we crossed the border into New Mexico and thirty minutes after that came to the first significant town.
"I think it's time to stop." I told her.
"Yes. It's been a long, strange day." She answered.
We pulled into the cleanest looking motel on the highway. I went into the reception and five minutes later we had a room.
"Room 234. Second floor near the back. Supposed to be very quiet." I explained.
We parked, grabbed our travel bags and climbed the stairs to the outside walkway that lead to the room. Inside was that standard motel room. In our case, a king size bed, a small round table with two chairs, a TV and a window A/C unit that rumbled.
"Are you hungry? I asked.
"Not too much. I'd rather get a big breakfast in the morning." She answered.
Using the remote, I flipped on the TV and found some mindless sitcom to watch. We watched for a while then Erin announced she was going to get a diet coke from the vending machine at the end of the building.
She was gone less than five minutes but when she returned I could tell something had happened.
"What's wrong?" I asked grabbing her arm to get her to look at me.
"Nothing." She replied.
"Well something happened. Tell me." I demanded.
"He's here." She replied.
"Who?" I asked.
"The truck driver." She answered nervously.
"Are you sure? That would be an odd coincidence."
"I'm sure." She said.
"Did he see you? Did y'all talk?" I asked getting agitated that I was being forced to pull every word from her.
