Her heart felt like it was going to beat out of her chest.
Her senses were attuned to everything around her. The air smelled of pine mixed with the scent of rain. She could hear faint raindrops as they hit the forest floor. It was a soft, gentle rain. In different circumstances she would have found this sound soothing. But not tonight. There was a bit of a chill in the air around her. It was the first cool autumn night of the season. Her hair was damp from the mist as it clung to her face. The dusk quickly approached, she strained to see what was around her.
She was in the middle of the woods. Alone. Her wrists bound with rope, between two small trees.
The evening had begun innocently enough. She and her boyfriend were visiting some friends, Justin and Marley, at their lake house for the weekend. They arrived early Saturday afternoon and spent most of the day cooking, drinking cocktails and playing board games. The drink she enjoyed the most was a spiked apple cider, served warm. It tasted so good, she had not realized how potent it was. She found herself buzzed when she recommended they play a game of truth or dare. Everyone was eager for some fun. Over a warm fire they shared some of their deepest, darkest “truths” but no one had accepted a dare. Feeling a bit uninhibited from the cider, she wanted to stir things up. On her next turn, she chose the dare. Her boyfriend Jamie instructed her to finish her drink and walk outside towards the woods.
Little did she know the dare would land her in the middle of the woods, helpless, tied and frightened by what would come next.
You see, that’s what happens when you play truth and dare with the wrong people.
As she stood there, she couldn’t remember just how she got into the position she was in. She recalled drinking a lot…she remembered walking along the path in the woods. She remembered Jamie lagging behind her. But she had no recollection of being tied to the trees. It was as if she passed out or something.
Trying to piece it all together, she was startled to hear footsteps behind her. She tried to turn her head to see who was there, but the darkness around her made it impossible to discern. She tried to move her wrists, but the rope was secure and didn’t budge.
Her voice was shaky as she tried to sound confident, “Who’s there? Jamie, is that you? This isn’t funny, you know!”
There was no response. The footsteps stopped and she could feel someone standing close to her. She desperately tried to see who was there. She could feel them watching her.
Suddenly she felt someone touch her face. “Shhh…don’t worry. You are fine. We are just having some fun, remember?”
She recognized the voice as Marley, Justin’s girlfriend. What was she doing out there? What was going on?
Marley stood behind her and pulled her hair back from her face. She whispered in her ear. “You’re really going to enjoy this.” And she walked away.
Amanda was terrified. She called to her, “Marley, wait! What is happening? Please untie me.”
In all the commotion, she didn’t hear Jamie walk up. He wrapped his arms around her and kissed her. “You look so sexy like this.” He was holding a lantern and the flame provided enough light for their eyes to meet.
“What is going on, Jamie? I don’t like this. Untie me!” she demanded.
Jamie smiled and said, “I wish I could, but the dare is not over.” He began to unbutton her shirt slowly as she protested, “What are you doing? Not here! Someone could see me.”
“Why are you worried, it’s just us out here. Relax. It’s dark.”
“I don’t like this. Untie me, please. I just want to go back to the lake house.” she begged.
“Not yet.” his tone was dark and ominous. Just then, she felt his hands on her breasts, moving down between her legs. With one hand on her sex he held her by the chin and said, “I am going to fuck you here, in the woods. And here’s the dare…they are going to watch us.”
As scared and panicked as she was, she was immensely turned on at the thought. She looked him deep in his eyes and said, “Then get on with it…if you dare.”
He loosened the rope from the trees and told her to put her arms around him. He then pinned her to the large oak tree as he rammed himself into her wetness. She let out a scream and threw her head back against the tree as he pushed himself further into her. The bark scratched her back through her open shirt, but she didn’t care. She could feel the others watch them by the light of the lanterns around. Now there were three couples there. A few of them completely nude. Watching him take her on that tree.
He let out a growl that sounded like a wild animal as he unloaded inside her. She could see her warm breath in the cool mist as she came with him. It was so hot. So primal. So taboo. They both fell to the ground and found themselves covered in the wet leaves and cold earth.
A hand reached out to her to help her up to her feet. It was Justin. Half naked and ravaged, she shyly stood up and as their eyes met, she found herself wanting him. Wanting him to take her as Jamie did. Wanting Jamie and Marley to watch them.
It was as if he could read her thoughts as he laid his robe on the ground and pushed her to her knees, filling her mouth with his large, hard cock. She sucked him furiously, on fire with lust. He joined her on the ground as Marley greeted her with a wet kiss. Marley began to feel her breasts as Justin moved behind her, pushing himself into her slick cunt. Amanda began to scream in ecstasy as another couple approached them, wanting to watch more closely.
It was a wicked scene. Justin fucking her from behind while she and Marley explored each other. Both of them hungry to taste of the other. Amanda writhed with pleasure as they continued to have their way with her, in front of Jamie and the others. She heard Justin say to Marley, “Now. Do it now.” Marley was sucking her nipples and Amanda felt her soft lips move up to her neck. It was heavenly, and then…the pain. Excruciating, wonderful pain.
She wailed as Marley’s teeth penetrated her neck.
The light from the window awoke her. She found herself in their guest room snuggled in the bed, under a white down comforter. She heard someone walk in. It was Jamie. He was fresh out of the shower with a towel wrapped around his waist. He kissed her on the forehead and said, “It’s about time you woke up! Bet you are hung-over after all the drinks. How are you feeling, you lush?” He snickered as he walked into the bathroom to brush his teeth.
She was dazed. Was it all a dream? It felt so real. She rubbed her neck to feel for the bite. But there was nothing. She looked in the mirror and there was nothing. She looked at her wrists and there were no marks from the rope. Her body didn’t feel sore. Her nails weren’t dirty. Her body was clean and she was wearing the pink cotton gown she’d packed for the weekend. She looked for her clothes from the night before. They were in a heap on the floor by her suitcase. Nothing was unusual. They weren’t dirty or stained from being in the woods.
She thought to herself, “I guess it was a dream.”
She readied herself for a shower, pulling her hair back to put it in a ponytail, when she felt a small twig tangled in her mane….
Just then, outside her bedroom door she heard Marley say to Justin, “Hey baby, breakfast was good, but I’m still hungry.” They both laughed a sinister laugh, as they continued down the hall towards the deck.
