Adventures in the Lost World
Atawna and the Lost World
Chapter 13 Heaven
What did I do? James asked.
Lin Yao shook her head. Atawna had been acting very strangely ever since James had given her the Bowie knife. She almost never took her eyes off him, almost as if she was expecting him to do something special. I dont know, big brother, she replied, but I expect that receiving that knife meant more to her than we expected. If only we understood one another better then we would know what is going on.
Atawna watched James and Lin Yao converse. She understood almost nothing of what was being said. She knew now that she had misinterpreted James offer of the knife. Inside she felt a deep sense of shame. She had been humiliated in front of her sister. She should hate James, but she couldnt. Instead she watched him, hoping that somehow he would give her a sign that he accepted her.
A low rumble distracted her. Above her dark clouds were gathering. It was raining more frequently now, a phenomenon Atawna was not used to. It always rained at the same time each day in the seasonless world in which she had been born. Here the rain seemed to be increasing in frequency and duration every day. It was time to seek shelter. As always, it was up to her and Chara. They could scout ahead much more quickly than the two ground-dwellers and find suitable shelter.
A jagged streak of lightning flashed across the sky followed by a peel of thunder. It was louder than anything Atawna and Chara had heard since they had fled the exploding mountain. A strong wind swept through the trees causing the bows on which the two girls perched to sway alarmingly. This time perhaps the forest floor might be safer than the treetops. Quickly Atawna dropped to the ground, Chara following.
Big wind, Atawna explained to James and Lin Yao. Find shelter.
James nodded and helped Lin Yao to her feet. His sister had almost healed, but she still tired quickly. As Atawna led the way through the forest they both followed.
A few drops of rain splashed onto the ground. At the same time the wind increased, shrieking through the treetops. Then there was an incredible blinding flash, followed by an enormous explosion. All four companions were knocked flat.
Damn! thought James. Must have struck right next to us. Where was Lin Yao? The rain was coming down hard now, obscuring his vision. He got to his feet and scrambled forward, but at that moment a huge cracking sound alerted him to another danger. A forest giant was coming down almost on top of him. For a second he just stood stupidly beneath the tree as it crashed toward him, and then a hurtling body knocked him to one side just as the massive trunk slammed to the ground.
The breath knocked out of him, James lay stunned as a pair of strong arms pulled him into the shelter of the trunk. By good luck the tree had fallen so that it spanned a natural depression in the ground. It provided a crowded but convenient shelter from the driving rain.
James became aware that he had been saved again by the jungle girl. Atawna lay beside him, her wet body pressed against his. Lin Yao, he gasped. Where is Lin Yao.
She safe, Atawna replied. Find hole in rocks.
James breathed a sigh of relief. A few feet farther down the trail had been a rock outcrop. Somehow, probably with Atawnas help, Lin Yao must have made it to the shelter of the boulders.
A flash of lighting lit up the shelter Atawna had dragged him into. It wasnt bad really. A carpet of leaves littered the floor of the depression, and the flaring trunk of the tree covered it so completely that very little rain was getting in. It was an ideal place to wait out the storm.
Beside him Atawna was breathing heavily from her exertions. He could feel her breath on his cheek and the warmth of her body as it pressed against his in the confirmed space. He had never been so close to a girl before. Even though he was twenty two, James had experienced very few girl friends and they had been the prim and proper sort typical of the late 40s and early 50s. They had been so interested in him as potential husband material that he had stayed as far away form most of them as possible.
Atawna was quite different from any girl he had ever met. She had now saved his life three times. He was beginning to feel like a maiden in distress. It was a complete case of role reversal.
Atawna seemed to have snuggled closer to him. The touch of the soft curves of her lithesome body sent a thrill through his body. He looked at the girl. A sudden brilliant flash of lighting illuminated her perfect features. Her lips were slightly parted and her incredible blue eyes were wide revealing her slightly dilated pupils. She was absolutely irresistible.
Atawna thought her heart would burst through her chest as James kissed her. She molded her body into his feeling the hardness of his muscles. His arms pulled her even closer and his mouth melted into hers his tongue flicking between her lips. Instinctively her own tongue sought his, pushing into his mouth and flicking over his teeth. The kiss deepened and seemed to go on and on until finally they pulled apart gasping for breath.
James looked at the panting girl. His 1950s sense of morality told him that he should not be doing this. The girl was too young, too innocent in spite of the way she dressed and the desire in her eyes when she looked at him.
At the same time his senses were telling him to take her. She was offering herself to him, her superbly conditioned body warm and supple against his. His mother had not raised him to be a prude, but the strictures of his time told him that any actions toward a member of the opposite sex, especially one as virginal and pure as the girl he held, had to be honourable,.
Atawna felt James tense. The kiss had been so delicious. She had thought she was going to melt. Inside her a fire burned that could only be put out one way and the man who had the power to quench the flames was pulling away from her. She moved closer to him. In the tight confines of their little shelter there was no way that he could escape. The outside of her rounded thigh brushed the inside of his leg and she felt something that told her James was more than willing to cooperate.
James gasped in surprise as Atawnas hand stroked him through his trousers. No girl he had ever met had done anything like that to him. Oh God, he thought. Dont so that again.
But she did, her strong fingers tracing the outline of his now impressive erection. James felt as if he was going to explode. Pulling the girl hard against him he kissed her again and slid his hand over the smooth bare skin of her arched back. The halter confining her breasts seemed to fall away and her hard nipples caressed his chest. Instinct took over. James rolled the panting girl over onto her back and pinned her beneath him. She was so soft and yielding and yet so strong and limber. Her legs gripped his waist, pulling him to her and his mouth sought her quivering breasts.
Atawna gave a little cry as her nipple was suckled for the first time. She had never felt anything so pleasurable. Her hands fumbled at his belt, attempting to undo the unfamiliar buckle. Unable to find a way to undo it, she pushed her hand inside the waistband of his pants and found what she sought. As Chara had pointed out, James did have a very big spear, and it seemed quite ready to seek out its target.
James groaned as the jungle girls hand squeezed his throbbing member. It was too much. He forgot his inhibitions and helped the girl remove his clothing. Outside the rain pelted down, cooling the forest air, but James was far too overheated to notice. He kicked off his boots, slid his pants down and moved between the willing thighs of the most beautiful woman he had ever met.
Naked, their bodies merged. Atawna guided James into her, spreading herself for him. She let out a little cry as he took her virginity and then she wrapped the powerful legs around him and arched her body toward him, drawing him deep within her.
James grunted as he thrust into the pulsating warmth of Atawnas well of love. She was incredibly tight and her vagina surrounded his manhood like a python squeezing its prey. She moaned in sexual rapture inviting him deeper and deeper within her.
Inexperienced, James fumbled in his first act of love, but the gorgeous woman who bucked beneath him seemed not to notice. Harder and harder, James drove into her. Atawna cried out in carnal desire, her body heaving as she approached her first orgasm. She had never imagined that anything could bring her such incredible pleasure.
Aaahhh! she cried as her vagina convulsed, her greedy womb reaching for James seed. Stimulated by her outburst, James exploded within her, his cry of passion echoing that of his jungle lover.
James fell back, sweat pouring from his body. He felt completely drained. Beside him the girl who had given him the most incredible experience of his life lay as exhausted as he was, her breasts heaving from the exertion and passion of their sexual encounter. She lay with her eyes closed, an expression of bliss on her perfect features. Unconsciously, her right hand drifted to the slight swell of her abdomen drawing James eyes in that direction.
A smear of blood decorated her inner thigh, reminding James of just what he had done. He was overcome with a sudden sense of guilt. This girl, so young and trusting had come to him and he had taken her like an animal, consumed by lust. He had taken something from her that could never be returned.
Atawna opened her eyes. A brilliant smile lit up her face. James, she whispered. She snuggled up to him and curved her body into his. It was abundantly apparent that she was not the least bit angry with him; rather her next action indicated precisely the opposite. Oh God, James gasped as she closed her fingers over his phallus. Almost incredibly, considering the strength of his ejaculation, his flaccid member stirred. Within seconds it was rising to do its duty as Atawna stroked it back to life.
James, Atawna said again. This time the tone of her voice left no doubt as to what she wanted. She placed her arms about his neck and drew him to her. Oh God, James repeated and this time too, his voice left no doubt as to what he felt.
The sound of the rain diminished as the storm died away. From their cleft in the rocks Lin Yao and Chara peeked out as a shaft of sunlight filtered through the treetops. The sound of birdsong announced that the storm was over. But there was also another sound, one that Lin Yao could not quite identify. Chara, however, had no doubt what she was listening to. A wide grin spread over her pixie-like features.
Lin Yao looked at the young girl inquiringly. Atawna and James, she smiled making a movement with her fingers that even Lin Yao could understand.
Lin Yao blushed. Now the sounds made perfect sense, and they were getting louder. Chara giggled at Lin Yaos discomfort. To the forest girl sexual relations were perfectly normal. There was very little privacy among the Trelana and her people were not inclined to hide their sexual activity in any case.
Go get food, Chara said. You come?
Lin Yao nodded. Chara grinned again at her discomfort and led the way down the forest path. When she and Lin Yao returned she expected that James and Atawna would be finished their mating.
Storm over, Atawna said. She lay quietly on the bed of leaves, her lithe body glistening with sweat. James smiled. He hadnt noticed when the rain stopped. He had been far too occupied with something else. Slowly he reached out and caressed Atawnas face. The jungle girl moved her head into his hand and smiled. She had found her mate.
James dressed slowly. A certain part of his anatomy throbbed with the workout it had received. Atawna had been like a wild thing. His first sexual experience had surpassed anything he had ever expected. He watched as Atawna used some water-soaked moss to remove the blood from her legs. His guilt was gone, however. The jungle girl was now much more to him than just his first sexual encounter. He hoped Mummy wouldnt be too outraged when he told her who he intended to marry.
