The Redheads of Mmm...Doctor!

Title: Perfect Stranger
Author: Elizabeth

I wake up the next morning to something wet on my breast. I panic for a minute before realizing that this wet thing is making its way down my stomach planting kisses every few minutes as she goes. I smile and run my hands through her hair, but I'm worried all the same. I hope Alex doesn't push herself too much and knows her limits. Before I get a chance to think anymore about this she is using her tongue to cause no more thoughts. The next little while is pure bliss until I reach that climax I had been forced to use my finger to reach lately. I screamed out her name as I went up and she rode with me until I came back down. She crawled on top of me to give me the most passionate of kisses before saying, “Good morning Honey.”

“Oh, God. I'd like to wake up like that more often.” Alex smiles and kisses me more. I roll over and make my way down her body to return the favor. I reach down and push her silk nightie up to her neck and start kissing her breasts. I make my own way down and get right to the point. I don't want to kill the girl after all. Alex climaxes quickly and I know right away it's been a longer time for her than me. When she is finished I'm glad I didn't spend much time. She looks very tired already. “Lie back down and have a rest. I'll take your breakfast up here.” Alex nods and puts her head down on the pillow.

I make my way downstairs and pull out some food. Alex doesn't like big breakfast so I stuck to oatmeal. I put out two bowls, some orange juice, Alex's iron pills and a rose for good measure. Then I put on some coffee for later and brought the breakfast up to Alex. As we eat she asks, “What are we going to do today?”

“Well you don't have to get chemo today; they're starting you on every second day now, so we're free to do whatever as long as you don't get too tired.”

Alex looks thoughtful, then says, “Can we go visit Abby and John? I think they're off today and I'd love to see Abby out of that hospital.”

So I help Alex into the bathroom where she has a bath and then get her dressed. She lost a bit of weight and I don't notice it fully until I see her in her regular clothes. “Hmm. Maybe we should go shopping for some comfortable clothes that fit a bit better.”

“Well we'll wait and see. I'm going to try and gain some of the weight back.”

“That's good, but just remember you're still on Chemo so you might get sick tomorrow.”

“Oh no I took care of that.”

I give her a confused look, “What?”

“Don't worry…just trust me. I took care of it.”

I shake my head and have a shower of my own, then pull some clothes on. I'm not one to talk about weight because my clothes are loose on me as well. This worked better than yoga, but I never want to go through it again. I help Alex into the car and we make our way over to Carter's house. Abby has the door open before we even get out of the car. Alex must have called ahead when I was in the shower. She runs down and gives Alex a hug and then hugs me as well. I'm a little shocked, but I hug her back. John comes out and smiles when he sees us. “Hey Alex. Susan do you want to help me with something while these two talk?”

I look at Alex who smiles and nods. “Sure” I say and follow him into the giant sitting room where there's a half naked tree standing in the corner. The tree is huge and it looks like it would take more than Carter and I to get it set up. Carter looks from me to the tree and says, “Gamma wanted to have a bit of a spectacle this year. My parents and Abby's mother and brother are coming.” I nod and we get to work. We get the lights half way down when Carter says, “So were you going to tell me? I mean…I had to find out from Abby.”

“About what?”

“About you of course. Abby tells me you're not going to be at work because Alex just got out of the hospital. Because you're her girlfriend and you're going to take care of her. Susan…I had no idea you were…”

“Gay? Well to tell you the truth I had no idea myself…not until I met Alex. Believe me I didn't not tell you on purpose, but everything happened fast. I met her, we went on a couple of dates, and she got sick. All I could think about after that was helping her get better.”

We are putting ornaments on now. I'm allergic to real Christmas trees and so am getting stuffed up. Why couldn't Carter have this talk over tea? “Well I guess that's okay then. I just thought we were better friends than that.”

“We are, please believe me. It's just been so busy with her. Listen, I wanted to invite you and Abby to our dinner on Christmas Eve. Anyone who wants to come can. Abby's mother and brother, your parents, Gamma. The more the better. Just let me know so I can set enough places. It's going to be potluck so take something with you. Please come.”

Carter looks thoughtful for a minute, “Okay that sounds like a good idea. Abby and I will be there at least.”

“Awesome. Now I don't mean to be rude but this tree is giving me a headache. Can we do something else?”

“Of course.” Carter leans in and gives me a hug. I hug him back and we are like this when the other two walk in. Alex turns to Abby, “Hey your boyfriend is stealing my girlfriend. Make him stop!”

“Oh I'm not worried. He loves me more. And besides she loves you more too.”

I smile. “It's true I'm afraid. Honey, guess what? Carter and Abby are coming to Christmas eve too.”

Alex smiles then too, “Boy this is going to be some party! But right now we should be going. I'm going to collapse. I need a nap.”

I look at her worriedly, but she comes over and takes my hands, “I'll be fine, but I want to get some sleep if we're doing some shopping this afternoon.”

We say goodbye to John and Abby and make our way back home. When we get there Alex is already asleep. I lift her out and carry her into the house, thinking how in another day everyone will be back. I almost wish they weren't coming so soon, but I know it's going to be a lot of fun. I only hope Alex can handle it. I settle her on the sofa and pull a blanket over her. It has started to snow outside, making the house look even better inside. I start a fire and then go to make some healthy soup for my love, thinking what a wonderful day it has been once again and how much fun we'll have shopping later.
