I left my tunic at the lounge chairs, and we waded into the warm water, holding hands as we swam out into the dusk.

“We’re safe, right?” he asked uneasily. “Nothing’s going to bite us out here, is it?” I turned to him.

I laughed. “Honestly? I have no fucking idea,” I said, taking him in my arms. “So let’s make this quick, what do you say, hmm?” I kissed him, still laughing, as he pulled my bottoms off.

“Don’t lose those,” I admonished as I kissed him again, very wetly, untying his trunks. He looped my bottoms through his arm as I did the same with his trunks, and we pulled each other in tightly, kissing very slowly, the warm water surrounding us. His large hand encircled my breast.

“Been wanting to touch these all afternoon,” he laughed. He lowered the front of the suit, leaning down to kiss them, opening his mouth to suckle first one, then the other. His tongue snaked out to flick at the nipples, groaning as he bit them, sending bolts of electricity straight through my body to my sex.

I pulled his head up by his long hair so we were face to face. “Thank you for bringing me to this lovely place, for letting me experience this with you, thank you so much,” I murmured into his mouth as I kissed him over and over, my tongue touching his again and again, as he made happy sounds and held my head.

He finally guided himself into me, smoothly, with the warmth of the water, filling me, as we floated in the darkness, the stars above us, the lights of Nassau off to my left. I sighed with pleasure at the fullness of him, as he looked into my eyes and reached for my mouth with his, licking, moaning as pushed into me again and again, slight pushes that felt so incredible. I leaned back to float on the water as he grasped the small of my back with one arm, using the thumb of his other hand to swirl circles on my center, putting his head back down to my breasts as I looked up at the night sky.

“Make some noise, there’s no one to hear you,” he encouraged. He massaged my breast with the hand that wasn’t supporting me, rolling the nipple between his thumb and forefinger. He pinched it as he bit the other one, hard, pulling it far into his mouth. I made some kind of sound, between a moan and a groan, and I felt him quiver inside me when he heard.

“Bloody fucking Jesus, feel so fucking good on me,” he muttered against my breast, warm breath on the soft skin. “Mmm,” he exhaled slowly through his nose, pulling me closer, his movements getting faster, breathing taking on that bellows quality I knew so well.

His fingers dug into my back as he came, and I could feel him, hotter than the water around us, as he emptied inside me, curse words flowing from his mouth into the night.

We just held each other in the floating darkness, finally relaxing, breathing deeply. We looked at each other, smiling, kissing.

“We’d better swim back before we get caught in the current and get carried to Florida,” I said softly.

“Okay,” he agreed, nodding, and we slowly swam back to shore, after putting our bottoms and trunks back on.
