Have you ever sat down and thought about a moment in time? Something or some time, which has stayed in your memory forever. I’m not talking about a wedding or a death in the family. Those are things we all remember. I talking about something insignificant to most everyone else but it meant something to you.
I was at a funeral recently of a brother-in-law. After the service as we entered the restaurant, one of my sisters, I have three, said that two women wanted to say hi to me.
They were two lifelong friends of my older sisters, whose husband passed away. I quietly asked my sister who they were and she told me Mary and Jill.
I knew Jill, but didn’t remember Mary very well. I hadn’t seen her in over forty-five years. I went up to them like they were old friends and when Mary asked me if I knew who she was, I said, “Of course, you’re Mary,” and gave her a big hug. I then turned to Jill and said, “Hi Jill, always good to see you.”
Jill lost her husband about nine months before. My sister had told me about it. I’ve seen Jill a dozen times throughout the years at events my sister has had. Her kids’ marriages and anniversary parties, things like that.
“Jill, I’m sorry to hear about Tom. He was a good man.” She thanked me and I gave her a hug. She smiled at me the way she has always done since I first met her when I was a kid.
Here comes my moment in time. I leaned over and whispered in her ear. “I remember when I was fourteen and you were spending the night at our house and I climbed on the bed and kissed you.”
She smiled at me and said she remembered it, too. She asked me if I remember the time at my sisters wedding. I told her I did and she gave me that beautiful smile. The problem was, I didn’t remember. I guess that was her moment in time.
Mary overheard Jill and said she never knew that we were a couple and our secret was safe with her. I told her we never were a couple. It was just a ‘moment in time’. I went back to my table and sat with my family. I could see Jill and Mary at their table. Damn, I liked that woman.
Jill and Mary were my sister Diane’s best friends. They all went to the same high school together. I was a couple of years younger than all of them, so I was considered the little brother. I had my own life but whenever Jill came around, I would stare at her. I remember her having a nice shape and big boobs. Young boys notice that. She would always smile at me and my sister would tell me to ‘get lost’.
The time Jill spent the night; my sister had just left the room. The door was open and Jill was sitting in the middle of the bed in her PJ’s. She looked up at me and smiled. I went into the room, climbed on the bed and kissed her on the lips for a few seconds. I was just a kid, so it probably wasn’t all that good.
I knew I had done something wrong and quickly jumped off the bed and went back to my room. I didn’t even take the time to apologize. I figured Jill would tell my sister and she’d tell our mom and dad and I would be in big trouble.
I waited a few minutes and nothing happened. I figured the shit would hit the fan the next morning, but at the breakfast table, no one said anything. I looked over at Jill and received a smile. She never said anything about it.
I didn’t see Jill very often after that. We moved to the suburbs and I attended a different high school than my sisters had. Mom let them finish at the school they were at. After that, they moved out on their own. I hardly ever saw Jill. All I had, was our moment in time. Whenever I’d thought about it, it made me smile. Kind of the ‘what if’ syndrome.
What if I was older? What if we dated and became closer? Throughout the years whenever I would see her, I always remembered the kiss and my ‘what if’ syndrome.
When my sister Diane was getting married, my brother-in-law Stan asked me to be his best man. He’d said I didn’t have to plan a party or anything like that. He wasn’t into that sort of thing. I just had to hold the wedding rings. They were just having a small wedding in the church and a small reception, mostly just family members and a few friends.
I did rent a tux and thought I looked pretty good. My sister said that Jill was her maid of honor. My sister looked nice, but my eyes were on Jill. She looked so beautiful. At the small reception, I remember dancing with Jill and when I went to the cloakroom, she came in. I couldn’t help myself and kissed her. That’s all I remember. I wish I could remember more, but I can’t.
Life went on and I heard Jill got married to Tom. I married also and began my married life. My wife was wonderful. We had forty-two great years together until she became ill. I did my best to take care of her.
She died a year and a half ago. I sure miss her. I would prefer to have her here and have to be her nurse again, than be alone. She was always worried that I would get remarried, but burying one wife is enough for me.
We raised three kids and have four grandchildren. I know they all miss her, but they hated seeing her in pain. When they say opposites attract, whoever they are, they weren’t kidding. Donna and I were opposites. I wanted to travel but she said we should save our money; we can travel after we retire. It was just her way of saying she didn’t want to travel. Now I have money, but no one to travel with.
Donna was a homebody. She loved to do artsy things and constantly wanted to remodel the house. She was a great mother and grandmother. I was an ok dad but I spent a lot of time working. I liked sports, she hated them. Thinking back, we did a lot of compromising in our life but we did love each other.
Early in our marriage I got a promotion that took us away from our families. We moved to another state. Our kids were little, so it didn’t affect them as much as it did Donna. We were from a big city and moved to a little town. She hated it until we bought our home. After that, things changed and she loved the rural area we lived in.
She planted a garden every year and as I mentioned constantly remodeled the house. We added rooms, a patio and even a pool. I went along with most everything she wanted.
It was just over five years ago when things changed. She had a number of operations and went through hell trying to conquer her illness. Our kids were all married but stopped by most every day to see their mother. She had her own bedroom now and I had mine.
There wasn’t any love making between us except for holding her and sometimes cuddling. My sex life was down to reading stories or masturbating to a porno flick. She knew it and didn’t like it but I told her it was better than the options. I wasn’t going to cheat on her.
After her death, I still didn’t date. Hell, I was sixty-five years old and wasn’t about to start over. Who the hell would want an old man?
I thought about my life and knew I had lived a good one. A loving wife and great kids. I thought back to my moment in time and did wonder what Jill thought that day in the bedroom so many years ago.
As I mentioned earlier, I saw her maybe a dozen times throughout the years. She and Tom catered parties and other occasions. Whenever we went to one, I always said hi to Jill and gave her a hug. I don’t think her husband Tom cared for it much but that’s just the way it was.
I never talked to Jill except for a few minutes at these occasions. I don’t know if she ever remembered our little kiss and I sure as hell wasn’t going to mention it. In fact, I never mentioned it to anyone ever. It was just a secret, I had kept for myself.
Back to the dinner, at the funeral. After everyone ate, we mingled and I did catch Jill alone. I know she was a much older woman then the one I’d kissed many years ago but she was still beautiful in my eyes and had a personality to match.
We talked and I told her that I lied to her. She looked at me, sort of odd and asked “When”?
I told her that I remembered the time I kissed her in the bedroom and even remember kissing her in the cloakroom, but that was all that I remember.
She smiled at me and kind of shook her head. “Jerry, I came in the cloak room because I wanted to kiss you. Then, I told you I was engaged to Tom and that this would never happen again. I loved Tom and never cheated on him but often wondered what would happen if you and I would have been together.”
“You had feelings for me? I had feelings for you too, but you were my sister’s best friend. She would have killed me if she knew I’d kissed you.”
“Jerry, I knew we had the age difference thing and it bothered me a little. You were just a little runt of a guy, but I did have feelings for you. I guess some things never change.”
“Jill, we are both alone now. Would you like to go out for dinner sometime or something?” I asked.
“You live two hundred and fifty miles away. You’re going to come here just to take me out to dinner?” She was laughing.
“Maybe you can meet me part way, at least the first time.”
She laughed again. She gave me one of her old business cards. She was selling her catering business. On the back, she wrote her cell phone number. “Call me in a few days, I need to think about this,” she smiled at me.
I said my goodbyes to everyone and my daughters and I headed for home. It was a few days later when I called Jill. “Well, what’s the verdict? Are you hungry?” I could feel her heartwarming smile over the phone.
“Ok, I’ll meet you, one time. I looked at a map and I’ll meet you in Marion. That’s almost half way. No hanky panky and no sex.” I could hear her laughing.
“I would never take advantage of you in a restaurant,” I replied. “Are you going to tell Diane?” I asked.
“No, not this time. Let’s just see how this goes first. She just lost her husband and I don’t want to shock her even more.”
We set up a date and I met her at the Holiday Inn Restaurant. The first thing I told her was that I didn’t get a room. I was going to drive home just like her. She gave me her patented smile and we went and had dinner and even a couple of drinks. I couldn’t believe we had been there over two hours.
It was beginning to get dark and I told her I was sorry for keeping her so long and that I knew she had a long drive home.
“Jerry, I have a room. I don’t like driving at night. Would you like to spend the night with me?”
I was shocked but didn’t have to think twice. I know I had a worried look on my face. “What is it Jerry? Did I say something wrong?”
“No, it’s me. There is something I have to tell you.”
“Do you have ED? If so, we can still cuddle.”
“No, I don’t have Erectile Dysfunction; if anything I might have the opposite.”
“I don’t understand,” Jill replied.
“Jill, I haven’t had sex with a woman in five years. I wouldn’t cheat on Donna, so I masturbated a lot. I’m sorry, but I know that sounds awful. I’m afraid I’ll come quite quickly. Also, I read somewhere that guys that masturbate have trouble feeling anything when they are inside a woman.”
Jill smiled. Jerry, leave that part up to me. I was a masseuse years ago and I’m pretty sure we can work it out.”
We headed up to her motel room. We were both a bit shy on where to start. I dimmed the lights and put the TV on a music station for easy listening music. I couldn’t believe that the first song that came on was by ‘Cherish’; it was titled, ‘Moment in Time’. Here are the words of the chorus.
If I could make time stand still then I know we can live this moment for ever
Can we stay right here, you don’t have to go, baby close that door I really am missing you, I rather be kissing you.
And I don’t know what I would do, If I couldn’t make love to you
Over and Over and Over I wish that I could live this moment in time.
It reminded me of my moment in time when I first kissed Jill so many years ago. I saw a tear in her eye as I kissed her. It was as though it was yesterday when we first kissed. I slowly undressed her and for the first time saw her beautiful big breasts.
“Not anything like they were fifty years ago,” she laughed.
I lay her across the bed and sucked on her breasts for the next ten minutes. I got up and quickly undressed and pulled off her panties. I might have been old, but I’ve watched enough porn to know what to do. I got between her legs and kissed her light bush. I went lower and sucked on her clit and she became wet. I continued to lick and suck on her pussy, pushing my tongue in and out.
She was moaning as I got up on my knees and she spread her legs even more. I took my rock hard cock and slowly pushed it into my sister’s best friend’s pussy. I was afraid of not feeling anything or coming too soon. Neither happened.
For a mature woman, Jill’s pussy was tight. She told me she exercised regularly and tried to keep her body in good shape. Looking at her body a person would think she was in her forties instead of her sixties. Her pussy gripped my cock just tight enough that it felt great.
I came hard and long. She was smiling at me and I knew she had an orgasm as well. I could feel her pussy pulsating. After we finished I turned off the TV and the lights and for the first time in five years, I cuddled up to a woman’s ass. It felt so good.
I fell asleep and woke up a couple of hours later. My cock was still pressed against Jill’s ass. It started to get hard and I wasn’t quite sure what to do until I felt her hand grab my cock and guide it to the opening of her pussy. She lifted her leg, rolled over on her back, and rested her leg on my hip.
I began fucking her with slow, hard strokes. I could feel her pressing against me and we had a rhythm going. Not a word was spoken but we were both making a lot of sounds, and I came for the second time that night. I’d felt her come again also.
She said, “Good night Jerry, sweet dreams,” and rolled back over on her side.
The next morning I thought would be awkward but it wasn’t. We both got up and I took a shower first and put my clothes back on. Jill had an overnight case since she was planning to spend the night.
While she was in the shower, I made us both a cup of coffee. She came out of the bathroom fully clothed, sat down and we talked.
“What does this mean Jill?” I asked.
“It was two lonely people that needed to be loved and it couldn’t have been better,” she replied.
“Where do we go from here? What’s next?”
“Where do you want it to go Jerry? As of now, we’re kind of friends with benefits,” she was laughing.
“Jill, I was going to buy a motor home and tour the states. Donna never liked to travel, so we really haven’t been anywhere. Would you consider traveling with me? If at anytime you want to go home, I’ll take you there. I just think it would be fun to travel with a companion.”
“A sleeping companion,” she remarked but laughed.
“That too,” I replied. “I have to be honest with you and let you know I don’t plan on getting married again. I think you should know that.”
“I don’t want to get married again either. To much hassle with the kids and all.” Jill had three kids also. They were all married with families of their own.
“Jerry, I have a suggestion before we go gallivanting around the country. Let’s take a cruise, say to Alaska. I’ve always wanted to go there but Tom and I were always too busy working.
“It will give us a chance to see how compatible we are and see what we have in common. If it all works out, I would be willing to travel with you, but you have to tell Diane.”
We said our goodbyes and said we would stay in touch. I called her less than a week later and asked her if she was serious about the Alaska cruise. She said she was. I told her I called a travel agent, they had a cancellation, and we could go in two weeks.
She hesitated for a few seconds and said, “Let’s do it. We only live once.” She reminded me to call my sister and tell her we were going. I waited a day before making the call.
When I called her, she asked me why I waited so long, that Jill told her about our dinner date and called her to tell her about our cruise. She let me know, in no uncertain terms, that Jill was her best friend and to treat her right. She also said she was happy for both of us and wondered when all this began. I told her that Jill could explain it to her.
I told my kids about Jill and I taking the cruise and they were happy for me. They’ve met Jill, but didn’t really know her. I did explain to them that we were going as friends. She wasn’t there to replace their mother.
“Dad, Mom’s gone and you were with her and taking care of her till the day she died. You deserve a little fun in your life. Just enjoy what life you have left. We love you Dad.”
We left for the cruise and had a wonderful time. Our days were filled with seeing new things and places. All our meals were supplied and we didn’t want for anything. In the evenings, we went to the lounges, listened to the music and even danced.
We both still wore our wedding rings and everyone kept telling us that they hoped that they were in much in love, as we seemed to be, when they got older. We just told them we were married for forty-three years, which is true. It’s just wasn’t to each other.
We made love at night, but not every night. Sometimes we just cuddled. We’d just got back from our cruise and I went and met Jill’s family. They were friendly and all of them said they called my sister their aunt.
I took Jill home with me to meet my family. To say they loved her would almost be an understatement. They told her that they have been worried about me since my wife passed away and they were so happy that I found an old friend to spend time with.
I’m now in the process of buying a motor home. Jill and I have decided to give it a try. We had to promise the kids that we would come home at least once a month and to bring home souvenirs for the grandkids.
We are about to leave for our first journey. We’ve decided to go out west. Wish us luck.
