A thrill rushed through Tanner’s body when the beautiful girl nudged his arm; he managed to catch himself at half a gasp when he saw her grinning at him, Did she do that on purpose? What was the purpose? He smiled back at her. When his new companion offered to move over, the painfully inexperienced young man belted out a zealous, “NO!”, and then blushed at his embarrassing display, “I mean…ummm…no, that’s not necessary. We can talk easier this way, right?”, he tried to cover up.
As he sunned himself, Tanner tried to sneak as many peeks at the girl as possible, until he was almost caught when, she looked over at him and introduced herself and asked his name. He sit up straight and hugged his knees, laughing softly, “No one has ever called my name or me sexy…”, then his face looked serious for a moment, “…well, maybe one person, here at Alden…”, he shrugged, “…anyway, Hi there, Britta, I’m Tanner!” He held his hand out for her to shake.
Not knowing what else to do and knowing nothing about ‘moves’, Tanner resumed his half-reclined position to sun himself. All it took was Britta describing herself skinny dipping and sleeping naked amongst satin sheets for Tanner to be back in his knee-hugging position, “Wow! Those are some…er…really good…good daydreams. Yeah, good daydreams, there.” When the sexy young woman turned the tables and asked the question of Tanner, he quickly looked up from her breasts and wondered if he’d been caught and then blushed and answered, “Ahhhhh…wellllll…hmmmm. That’s a good question. You know, Britta, I’m really embarrassed here, but after hearing your daydreams, I’m not really sure I could even tell you my full name right now.” Tanner was an intelligent guy, but he knew that anything he said would make him look like a fool, so he might as well go with the truth and let the chips fall where they may.
