My plane stopped and everyone tried to be the first off, so I sat back
and scanned the crowd at the window. There was Sara, she had changed
in the last 3 years and the only reason that I could recognize her
was from the beautiful hair color and the dress that she told me she
would have on. The dress was easy to spot, it was custom made for me
overseas. I had the tailors in Hong Kong make two each of several
dress's, one for Mom and one for Sara. Mom was at work and in the
middle of a major deal and told me that she would make up for not be
able to pick me up at the Airport.

The crownd had thinned considerable and I stood up, grabbed my carry
on and deplaned. As soon as I stepped through the entrance way Sara
was wrapping her arms tightly around me and crying, "Oh god, your home
at last, Mom and I have missed you more than you can imagine."

I kissed her on the cheek and extracted myself, not daring to touch
her yet, I asked her to get the car and bring it around to baggage
pick-up. I would meet her there. She gave me a funny look, then a
light went on in her eyes and she smiled and walked off. Grabbing my
luggage and placing it in the truck of Sara's car I then open the
passenger side door and climbed in. Sara put the car in gear and
headed home. I turned and looked at Sara and was amazed how she had
filled out since I had left for military duty. She had grown only a
couple of inch's taller, but at least 4 inch's across her bust line
and advanced several cup size's. Her waist was still narrow with hips
that were an assmans dream. Her dress was high enough to see that I
could see she had hose and garters on instead of pantyhose. I was
getting a raging hardon just from looking at her.

Reaching one hand over to stroke my bulging crotch, she smiled
impishly and said, "Mom wants you to call her as soon as you get in
the house. Also, no playing around until Mom is home and can join

As soon as my bags were upstairs and emptied I grabbed the phone and
dialed the bank, Mom answered the phone, "Wendy Jones, Vice-president,
May I help you?"

"Congratulations on the new postion Mom," I replied, "Is this phone

"Yes it is," she answered back.

"Well," I began, "I have a friend of yours that hasn't seen you in
three years. He wants to know if your pussy still gets wet when he
pokes his head in."

"Oh, god," she gasped out, "I'll be there in thirty minutes, don't do
anything at all, and I do mean anything, until I get there."

I heard Sara laughing behind me and turned to see her standing there
grinning at me. "No, I am going to do as we were told and hold off
until we can lock the front door for the evening" I told her, Sara
shook her head and asked me if I was going to be able to wait that
long. I smiled and said that I had waited three years so whats 30

As we waited for mom to come home Sara started to tell my about her
boyfriend in collage, his name was John and she just knew that he was
perfect for her. She explained that there was just something about
him and his attitude towards her that told her there was a lot more
about him then what was on the surface. She just couldn't pin it down
but it was there.

We talked on until the front door slammed shut and Mom walked into the
den. I stood up and she was in my arms and her sweet lips pressed
hard against mine as her body glued itself to me. My dick was at full
attention and throbbing hard as we broke for air.

"Oh baby, it is so good to have you home again. I can hardly wait for
us all to be together again." She said, as she walked over and sat in
the chair. She had hiked her skirt as she sat down and I was looking
at a pair of long legs encased in nylons to the very top of her
thighs, she was wearing a pair of dark blue panties, her legs spread
wide apart. There was a very dark spot that marked her panties from
pussy top to asshole. "See what your phone call did," she commented,
" My nipples went rock hard as soon as I heard your voice, and when
you asked me that questions, my pussy instantly got so wet that I felt
as though I had peed my pants."

"Now just how can I make that problem better," I asked her.

"Stop playing with yourself and let your s****r empty that loaded set
of balls you have." Mom said. "As soon as she drains them I'm going
to raise it back up and drain it myself. That way we can go enjoy the
city for a while and come back home later to some very serious sex."

By now Sara had unzipped my pants and tugged them down far enough to
let my dick spring free. "Mom, his cock is longer and bigger than
when he left," exclaimed Sara.

"Oh god, Sara, our home grown stud is really built for action now. I
think that we are in for a real ride tomight." Mom told Sara. "You
have changed since you left here baby, from what I can see it is all
for the better too."

Sara's mouth was devouring the head of my dick, she would run her
tongue up and down the shaft, the raspy feel of her tongue and then
the velvet touch of her lips was making my balls tight and hard. I
looked over at Mom where she was sitting, her eyes were glued to the
action going on, her fingers were rubbing the wet pussy through her
panties. As her fingers pressed down and stroked I could see the
outline of her clit as it harden and swelled under the material.
Watching Mom masturbate as she watched her daughter suck her son off,
turned me on to the point of no return. As Sara locked her lips
around the base of my dick head and stared to suck, I blew, jet after
jet of heavy cum arched from my cock and into the waiting mouth.

I saw Mom start to twitch as my climax sent her over the edge and she
fingered her self faster. Her cunt was soaking the underpants as her
fingers flew up and down the valley between her pussy lips. Moaning
as her hips arched and her muscles spasmed, she would relax and then
jump as another orgasm went through her. I had all I could do to
stand, my balls felt as though they had been sucked dry. Wiping her
lips off, Sara stood up and moved over to sit on the couch facing mom.
She pulled her dress up and displayed for my eyes a smooth shaved
cunt, framed by a pair of crotchless black lace panties. She grinned
at me and slipped her fingers down into the wet lips of her beautiful
pussy. As she spread her fingers to spread the lips, I could see the
white cream ooze out of her cunt. My mouth was tasting her before I
could get there. As I started to move towards her mom said, "Oh no,
that's for later, right now you come over here in front of me."

As I reached her chair she reached up and softly wrapped her hand
around my soft cock. Placing the head of my shaft just up to her lips
she began to run her tongue over the head and crown. I was not real
surprised to feel my cock start to come alive again as she would first
suck on the tip then lick the wet marks off. Soon my cock was half up
and growing stronger.

Mom looked up at me as she kept eating my cock, "Now I know that my
baby has juice left just for me. So let's fill mom's mouth with all
that hard cock you've saved up for me to eat"

Sara was stroking her self and slipping the finger deep into her sweet
cunt hole as she watched mom sucking me off. That sight of Sara
finger her cunt with her dress around her hips made my cock jerk up
and land inside mom's mouth. Her lips slide down the shaft, taking me
deep into her throat. I felt the tingle start in the base of my balls
again as she slide up to capture just the head of my cock. Her
fingers were lightly stroking my balls as started to jerk my hips. I
looked down at her body spread out and waiting to be fucked, and
fucked again, I let go with another round of hot cum. Mom moaned as
she felt the throb of my rigid cock firing into her mouth. Sucking
harder she drained what little cum I had left out of me.

Sara was bouncing all over the couch as she produced her own orgasm,
her fingers, wet and slick with her pussy's natural lubricant, they
plunged in and out of her hairless pussy.

"Ohhhh, mom, lets just stay home and make up for all that lost time,"
Sara said, " We can go out anytime later."

"No, we need to give your b*****r time to let his body recover and
cool down before we get serious. This was just to take the edge off
his lust. By the time we come home tonight he will be able to relax
and enjoy all the goodies we have to share with him." Mom told Sara.

I was sitting on the couch when Mom and Sara came back downstairs,
both had wanted to change clothes before going out. We had a nice
dinner and spent some time just walking around the Mall afterwards,
mostly we talked about what was happening with our friends and
relative's while I had been overseas. Mom and Sara did a bit of
shopping, then decided that they were ready to go home.

Mom drove the car while I sat in the in the middle. As we drove onto
the freeway for the trip back Sara took one hand and placed it in her
lap, Mom set the cruise control and lifted her foot off of the gas
pedal. She took my other hand and pushed it under her short skirt and
down between her legs. I discovered soft silk along the leg then an
opening and nothing but soft shaven pussy lips, she was already damp
along the lips so my finger slipped down inside to the inner recess of
her cunt real easy. Sara had done the same with my right hand and to
my delight found that she had on the same type of crotchless underwear
and she had shaved also. I worked my finger along her legs and
between the thigh top and outer pussy lips, teasing and touching, I
loved the way she would wiggle back and forth as my fingers enjoyed
the feeling of her skin.

Mom shivered as my hand slowly rubbed the smooth walls of her pussy,
just barely above her clit. "Oh baby, I've dreamed every night for
the last few weeks about having you back home to take care of us. My
pussy just wets all over itself when I remember how your cock felt
deep inside. Now, tonight, it gets to stop dreaming and have the real

Sara sighed as the hand in her lap finally pushed a finger down into
the open lips and stroked the walls. "Ohhhh, ohhhh, how many times
we lay with a toy in our cunts talking of how much we missed having
your hard cock stuffing our cunts full, the way you fill us with hot
cum and then keep on fucking until we came. Ohhhh, just thinking
about it is driving me crazy."

As Sara was talking I could feel her pussy suddenly shiver and spasm
as my hand and finger were soaked with creamy white pussy juice. I
looked her in the eye and licked my finger and hand off slowly. Her
eyes never left my face but her body was shivering again. Mom was
holding my left hand tightly between her legs and I could feel her
body fighting to not climax. I moved my finger back and rubbed the
clit that lay wetly below and then pushed my finger down and into her
cunt opening, she lost. Her body jerked and shivered as she quietly
orgasmed, my finger coninued to probe and stroke to prolong the
effect. "I guess I wan't the only one with a hair trigger" I said to

I walked into the house helping two beautiful women who had rather
shaky legs. As I closed the door behind me and locked it, I heard
Sara tell her mother. "Mom lets just change into our night clothes and
go in the bedroom. I think that we just might not make it out of any
other room once we start. We want to make sure that we are were we
can be totally relaxed once we start. What do you think mom?"

"I fully agree with you baby," Mom replied, "plus there are some
things in the bedroom that we many want to use and I don't feel like
running up and down the stairs tonight."

I walked into the hall and asked mom and Sara if they wanted to go on
upstairs while I made sure everthing was closed up and made sure the
phone was turned way down. They disappeared up the steps as I walked
through the lower house checking the rooms and windows. Turning off
all the lights and going up to my room I told mom to call me when you
are ready. I changed into a small bathrobe, shaved and walked back
into my room. Sara followed me into my room and asked "Hey big
b*****r, do you still beat off?"

"Of course," I replied, "Everytime I thought of you or mom I had to,
and that was at least twice a day."

"God, no wonder your cocks doubled in size since you were home last."
Sara said.

"No, the reason its bigger is it's been three years since I plunged it
into any wet pussy and its still just backed up."

"Three years?" Sara asked.

"Three years," I siad "I have the best at home and I wasn't about to
try anything out there that might cause me problems. So I would sit
and talk to the girls about different ways to make love, and things
that they enjoyed having done to them. Let me tell you s*s, they
tried their best to get me to sl**p with them but I refused. In order
not to sound like a snob or creep about it I told them that I was a
virgin and saving myself for my future wife. Once that was accepted
by them they began to really tell me what I should do and how i could
make a woman real happy. You know all those little items I send home
to you and mom? Well those will come in handy over time as I use what
information I have been given to make you and mom as happy as I can."

"Yeah, some of the items mom and I had no problem with but there are
some that require a very careful explanation about." Sara commented.

"c***dren," Mom yelled, "I need some help in here, you can finsih your
discussion in here with me included you know."

Walking into mom's room I turned to Sara and found her stepping into
her room, "I'll be right there." she said.

I stepped into mom's bedroom and was stopped by what met my eyes, her
bed was no longer a brass full size, it was now a very large water
bed, wooden posts supported a full wooden canopy that was a full size
mirror. All along the top rails were small lights that lit up the bed
and left no area of the bed unlit. The headboard was from canopy to
floor and had shelves with mirrors behind them. On the shelves
weremost of the toys that I had sent them. Mom was sitting up in the
middle of the bed, her back against several large pillows. She had
the white cotton night shirt that I had bought her on, It was
unbuttoned down to just above her navel. I could see soft, tan skin
where the shirt was pulled back. If she was standing up the edge of
the shirt hands just an inch below the curve of her soft ass. I just
stood there enjoying a sight that until this morning was only memory.

"A-hem," I heard behind me.

"I'm sorry but what I saw sort of took my breath away," I said, "I
just sort of went into a daze, it was like the first time I peeked at

I moved out of Sara's way and as I looked at Sara from the back my
cock went into semi rigid to max thrust. Hair touched sholders that
were covered by black sheer nylon, it ended just about 12 inchs from
her knees. A pair of crotchless panties made from the same material
encased a tanned ass that was heart shaped and firm. She looked back
at me and said "Tell us about the first time you saw mom."

Pulling my thoughts back I began, "I had crawled under her bed one
after noon when I was 12, I was looking for something that I was not
suppose to have. Mom walked in and sat down on the bed, she had come
home early that day. Well I just got real quiet and stared as mom
started to undress. As she took off each piece of clothing I felt my
dick stiffen, soon she had on panties and nylons and nothing more. As
her back was to me I could see a dark area through the white material
of her panties. But when she walked over to the mirror on the closet
door I could see both her back and her front, then I realized that I
was staring at the pretties tits in the world. My cock was starting
to throb, so I reached down real slow and eased it out of my shorts.
As I watched mom look at herself in the mirror. Well, when mom spread
her legs apart and started to rub her inner thigh as her thumb slipped
over the mound in the center of her panties. My hand went down to my
cock and started to rub it, Her hands then slipped under the leg
bands and pulled the panties off to the side, once her pussy was
exposed her fingers slipped in and she started to stroke her self. I
could see that as her fingers slid up and down they were getting wet
and shiny. As her rubbing sped up, her pussy started to swell and the
lips pull back exposing the little bump that she was rubbing.
Suddenly she jerked her hips real hard then again, I saw white liquid
running down her leg, each time her hips jerked. I felt my cock that
my hand was rubbing suddenly jerk as I shot my cum all over the floor.
I lay there under the bed, my cock throbbing as it continued to shoot
hot cum in my hand and on the carpet. Mom, still stood looking in the
mirror, her hand between her legs, one finger deep inside of her. To
this day I still jerk off with that memory. I wanted to crawl out and
tell her that I would be glad to make her happy by rubbing her pussy
anytime she needed it. God, look how hard my cock got just telling
you about it."

I refocused my eyes and looked at mom, she was leaning back on her
pillows, her legs pulled up and spread as wide as possible. Her finger
was buried inside of her cunt, her other hand was rolling and tugging
on her rigid nipples, her shirt wide open now. Sara had one hand
holding her nightgown hem up, she had placed one foot on the edge of
mom's bed and was slowly fingering her clit. I walked over to Sara
and knelt in front of her. She pushed her self forward and placed her
wet pussy onto my waiting lips. As my tongue made contact with her
inner pussy walls she placed her hands around my head.

"Ohhhhh, goddddd, I've dreamed of your mouth licking me clean every
night since you left. Ohhh, the feel of your mouth wrapped around my
clit, ohhh, ohhhh,ohhhhhhhhnooooo, I don't want it to end. Just keep
suckinggggggg, yessssss, ohhhhhhh."

As Sara was moaning I was watching mom, she had slipped over the bed
until she was behind Sara. In my present postion I couldn't see
anything but smooth pussy skin. Sara was starting to shake as my
mouth closed around her slit and gentle started to suck, I was running
my hands across her inner thighs as I trailed my thumbs just outside
her pussy lips. I reached up and pushed her back onto the bed and
continued to eat her as mom moved over and watched. Sara was running
her hands back and forth across her tits as she moved her hips up and
down. My mouth locked on her clit tried to stay with her but
sometimes her swollen clit would pop out and I had to chase it down
and lock on again.

Mom moved Sara's hands away and lifted the nylon nightgown so she
could fondle and suck on the exposed breasts. Sara started to go

"Ahhhhhhh, Mom, ohhhhh, mom, I can't hold back much longer, ohhh,
please mom, can you get the beads, ohhhhhh, hurry, hurry!!"

Mom moved over to the nightstand and pulled out a strand of seven
beads that were about one half inch in diameter, each bead seperated
by a four inch long cord. She looked at Sara and said,

"Did you stretch your muscles out like I showed you honey?"

"Oh yesssssss, please let's do it now, ohhhhhhhhh!!!"

Mom tapped me on the shoulder and motioned me back, as I moved so did
Sara. Mom took my hand and pulled me down on the bed where I was on
my back, Sara then straddled me with her back towards me. She then
took my cock and placed it between her pussy lips and moved her hips
up and down from cock tip to base. She then slipped my hard shaft
inside and quickly took my entire shaft deep inside of her.

"Oh god that feels so fucking good, ohhhhh, god, I love that solid
cock filling my cunt, ohhhh, it fills that empty ache so beutifully,
ohhhhh yeesssss. Mom, are you ready to help us, ohhhh.

Sara slid up and pulled my cock out of her wet cunt and turned around,
she then reinserted it deep inside and leaned her body forward. I
reached up and pulled her nightgown out of the way and placed a nipple
between my lips to suck. Mom had moved behind Sara and I could feel
her insert the beads. one by one she shoved the beads into Sara's
asshole until she pushed the last one in about a half inch. Sara
started to move her hips in circles and up and down.

"Oh, oh, oh, oh, OHHHHH, mommmm, now mommmm, ohhhhh!!"

Mom took the string and gave it a small jerk, Sara arched her back and
yelped, I felt the bead pop out. Another jerk, another bead, Sara was
going crazy, her pussy was now flowing with wet cunt juice as another
bead popped. Her legs were jerking on either side and her head was
tossing from side to side as mom give big jerk and the remaining beads
popped out in rapid fire.


Sara fell on my chest as she passed out. Her cunt muscles were
squeezing my cock so hard that I felt as if we were locked together.
Her body would shake and quiver as each wave rolled through her.
Slowly she opened her eyes and looked up at me. Her hands and arms
wrapped me tight. "Oh god, there will never be another that can fuck
me like you can big b*****r. No matter what happens in life, you will
always have a hot pussy here for you. I promise you that. She
snuggled down into my arms and started to kiss my neck and chest as
her orgasms slowly faded away.

"Mom," I said, "If Sara would move down just alittle you could bring
that sweet wet pussy of your over here so I could give you the hello
kiss it deserves."

Mom moved around so she was over my head and facing Sara. Lowering
her hips down until my mouth could touch her sweet cunt. I ran my
tongue quickly from end to end and got a delightful gasp from her as I
hit the button. Reaching up I spread her pussy lips back and planted
my face tight in her crack. My tongue dove deep inside and started to
lick the inside of her pussy clean. As I attempted to suck the juice
from mom, I felt a pair of lips close around my cock and slip down the
shaft. I felt the muscles of my legs start to quiver from the
sensation of having a sweet cunt in my face and a pair of soft lips
attached to my cock.

"Oh baby, you know how to make a woman feel gooddddd. Ohhhh yesss,
shove that long tongue inside there, make me feel goodddddd, ohhhhh
goddd, yes, yes, yes. Give me your hands, ohhhh, please play with
these tits, make those nipples hard, yes tug on them ahhhhh, god eat
my cunttttttt."

I realized that it was Sara cleaning my cock and mom was just enjoying
my mouth. I slipped my tongue out of her flowing hole and pressed it
onto the pick clit that begged for attention. As my tongue rubbed it
from side to side I gentle pinched and tugged her nipples, they were
like small cherries swollen and rigid. Mom's breast were a eye treat
for me, as she would get excited the upper portion of her breast would
swell out and then the aurole and nipples would swell even more. I
could usually tell just how turned on she was by looking at those
beautiful tits. Right now they were filling my hands completely. My
cheeks were wet from her pussy and I knew that she was geting ready
for a good hard fucking.

"Oh, honey, ohhhhhhh, I need you to fill that empty pit, I want your
hard shaft buried deep inside of me. Ohhhh god fill me up just like
you used to do. Fuck me hard and fuck my now!!!!!"

Mom moved over and layed on her back. Sara crawled up and lay next to
mom on the bed. I took mom's legs and placed them on my shoulders.
Taking my cock in hand I placed the head inside the pussy lips and
rubbed it up and down, spreading her juice all over my cock and shaft.
I placed the head just at the opening and slowly lowered my body down.
My cock split the walls of her pussy as it moved down and in. Her
walls clamped down and held tight as the shaft slowly sank until her
cunt was full. I started a slowly full lenght pull out and stopped
just as the tip of my cock slipped out, down again.

"Oh yesssssss, oh yesssssssss, god don't stop, ohhhhhh, that is what
I've needed for three years now, ohhhh god, fuck me, fuck,

I went down and as I hit bottom I rotated my hips, then pulled back.

"OOOOOOOO, ohhhhhhh god, it feels so goooddd."

I was now starting to feel my orgasm build deep inside of my balls, I
let mom's legs slip off my shoulders and down to the mattress, moving
my arms under her I lifted her into my lap. My hips were driving up
into her cunt and I was moving faster and faster.

"Oh baby, oh babbby, yes fuck me, fuck em, ohhhhhhh god I need you to
fill my cunt with hot cum, oh god, now baby, now baby, I can't hold
back anymore!!!!!!"

I released three years of pent up lust. Her eyes opened wide and she
gasped as the first load of hot cum shot deep inside. Her mouth
opened and she locked her mouth onto mine and screamed as my cock
enlarged as each load was fired deep. I heard her screaming into my
to fuck her, and keep fucking hard and fast. Her first wave of orgasm
shook her deep, as the waves came rushing over her our lovemaking
became a battle between the bodies. My hips were grinding into hers
and she was pushing right back. As we peaked and started to ease our
motion, I lowered her back to the bed and lay between her legs, my
mouth still locked tightly to hers. Breaking the kiss, I started to
move but she held me tight with her locked legs.

"Oh, no." Mom said. "You just leave that dick right were it's at and
lay your head on my tit's. This night is just starting my dear."

We lay intwined for just a few minutes, Sara was rubbing my back while
mom just lay there holding onto me. She gentle pushed my off and told
me to go take a shower and meet us down stairs. I did as asked and
after taking another shower headed down to the f****y room. Mom and
Sara were sitting on the couch and they had changed into just night
shirts that buttoned up the front, of course they were not buttoned up
now but just pulled together. mom patted the couch between them and I
sat down. Placing an arm around each, I pulled them close and hugged

"Now is the time for us to relax and just let the feelings take us to
where ever they will." mom said.

We sat there just enjoying the company of each other. That was the
homecoming I received four years ago. Since that evening we spent
many nights falling asl**p tangled in each others arms. Sara got
married just eight months ago and she married John the boy she was
dating when i came home. Yesterday she called me and asked me to meet
her at her office today. It's only a two hour drive so I told that I
would arrive around three in the afternoon.

Sara had taken a good job after graduation from collage. She was a
business consultant involving time management. Her job had some
oddball hours but the pay was excellent. John was an engineer for the
city so they did set it up so that they had their weekends together.

I met Sara at her office and she grabbed her purse and told them she
would be at the club. After five she would be unavailable until
Monday. We took a small booth in the back of the club and ordered a
drink. While we waited I asked her what did she need from me. Sara
grinned at me and asked, "Now what do you think I need from my
favorite b*****r?"

"Sara, you just got married," I said, "Surely your still basking in
the honeymoon glow."

Her face lite up and she had a smile that went from ear to ear.
"How's mom doing?"

"Just great." I replied, "She still can't get enough, and she still
has the ability to harden my cock with the way she moves or if she
wears something special."

Sara got a little gleam in her eye and asked if I was still wanted
what she had promised me. I told her that anytime she needed me just
to let me know. I was always ready to show my s****r how much I loved

"Good" she said, "Now let me tell you what is going on and what we can
do about it."

"Three months ago, John had talked me into letting his older s****r,
Tina, stay with us while she was finishing her school. She had worked
putting him through collage and now it was her turn. I had agreed,
you've never met Tina, but you'll like her. She is my heigth and has
long red hair down past her shoulders. She wears glasses and is a bit
on the bigger side. She has some extra padding but it doesn't
distract from her appearance. Now she does have very large breast, I
mean they are at least about 44DD or bigger. Very soft voice and big
brown eyes. Well, anyway, she moved into the extra room downstairs by
the kitchen. No problem, then three weeks ago, I had to go to a
meeting and John was off, I left the house and about twenty minutes
down the road discovered that I had left my briefcase at home. I went
back and parked in the street. Going into the house by the garage
door so not to wake anyone, I quietly got my briefcase and headed back
out. As I walked by Tina's room I heard voice's, actually I heard a
soft little scream and stopped. The door wasn't closed completely so
I peeked in and there was Tina, John had his cock buried deep inside
and they were loving every stroke. I moved quickly and went on to
work. Now I have spied them fucking away just about everyday that
I've suppose to work since then. I think it's time we, You, John,
Tina and I make some ineresting arrangements for the future. What do
you think Big b*****r?"
