He paused and stared. Bala had filled their wooden tub with warm water. Flower petals floated on the surface, their scent wafting through the room. Bala, her dark hair piled on top of her head, sat in the tub. Water glistened on her smooth brown skin.
"She's at Jane's for the night," Bala said. "Hanna will be our guest tomorrow."
"Oh." Ivan moistened his lips. At the moment his brain wasn't comprehending much beyond the sight of her naked in the tub.
"The water is warm and there's room for two, if you'd like to join me." She cast him a flirty look
She didn't need to ask twice.
Ivan quickly shifted to Huform. The floor shuddered from the force of his change and he paused a moment, letting the momentary weakness pass before he walked to the tub and climbed in, facing Bala.
Smiling, she turned toward him and he drew her into his arms. He spread his legs and she settled between them, her smooth, wet back resting against his chest.
"This is a nice surprise," he said, kissing her shoulder. He gently rubbed her arms, then dropped his hands to caress her inner thighs.
"Yes it is. I hadn't expected you home this soon. I was preparing myself for you."
"Then I'm glad I got an early release."
"An early release?" She purred and reached behind her to clasp his cock. "We'll see about that."
"Really?" He chuckled and turned her to face him.
Bala smiled and straddled him. Their mouths met in a hungry kiss. Ivan kneaded her breasts and rolled the nipples between his thumbs and forefingers. He thrust his tongue into her mouth and she met every possessive stroke with enthusiasm that sent his heart pounding out of control.
