Sozont #25: Martha Stewart, Loving
25. Martha Stewart, Loving ««««««««««««
Sozont could hardly believe his luck. He was going
on a real date!
At the restaurant, sometimes they talked a lot, sometimes
there were silent periods. Although this hy00man body couldn't detect
anything, Sozont had faith that communication was still occurring during
the "silent" periods.
At the movie, Marth started rubbing Sozont's legs.
Somehow Sozont had never figured out that this was the whole point of going
to a movie on a date! So he rubbed Marth's body, a bit self-conscious
in his copying of her moves.
Afterwards, they went to Marth's place. She mixed
up two drinks and handed him one.
—"I need a drink?"
—"Yes. You're still very uptight. Drink
So they drank and talked. Favorite music, foods,
movie stars. Eventually the alcohol was all consumed. Marth
went on the offensive and kissed Sozont wetly. Then Sozont <I don't write sex scenes; sorry>.
Afterward, they talked some more. Parenting styles,
healthcare, proper uses for VR. Red Bunny would be home soon, so they
put their clothes back on. Marth kept saying that Sozont should go,
but then they would find another subject of interest and Marth would talk
When Red arrived, Sozont took that as his cue and walked
towards the door, but it seemed Marth still wanted to talk, while Red was
almost literally stamping her feet. Sozont stood by the door for awhile,
while Marth talked and kept drawing Sozont into conversation by saying interesting
things. Eventually Sozont kissed her while rubbing between her cheeks
and ears. They had a silent moment, then Sozont went home to his apartment.
He lay on his mattress. He didn't want to go
back to VR just yet. He still couldn't believe his luck. Sozont
had a girlfriend! And she was a troll, so he *did* deserve her.
He still hadn't told her about the rabbit sex, but there were probably
lots of bad things she had done that he hadn't heard about yet. All
in good time. He wished she were there with him, but at least he was
still in the body that had mated with her. Sozont couldn't figure out
how he felt about that. There were so many feelings! Clearly there
were lots of newly-activated brain bits, that had not been fooled by his
VR life and had refused to activate before. He felt older; there was
more of him now.
Sozont went to sleep. It was the first time in
several years that he had voluntarily slept in human form when VR was available.
Marth had made love to this body, so it wasn't such a bad body, after
