They had been very close friends for a long time, and shared many secrets with each other. Where’d they’d like to be, things they’d like to see, and things they’d like to do.
There was just one secret that remained a little bit too deep for Rita to admit. She wanted them to be another step closer than friends. However, no matter what she did, she couldn’t quite mentally prepare herself to say something to Kelly. Rita would freeze up when she wanted to say something, and suddenly everything she was wishing for seemed like a bad idea.
‘This trip is it. I’m going to do it. I’m not backing down this time.’ Rita thought to herself. She had spent a lot of time planning this trip so it would be just the two of them. From renting the cabin, to borrowing a snow-worthy truck from a friend.
It was late at night, and it was still snowing out in the woods. The fans of the heater in the old truck were running on full blast. Given the vehicles age, the heater only seemed to have two settings, “Off,” and “Surface of the Sun.” That made it a lot warmer than they needed it to be, but snow didn’t slow them down, and that was all that mattered.
Still, the heat compelled them to at least unbutton their coats and drop their gloves.
“I can’t believe it’s still snowing, it’s been going on for like, what, three hours?” Said Kelly. “It’s really cold out here too.” She added, as she carefully drove through the snow.
Rita’s train of thought was broken by Kelly’s words. She took a moment to think of what Kelly had just said. It was almost as if she didn’t hear it, but she finally uttered the word, “yeah.”
“Can’t be much further to the cabin though,” Kelly added. “Actually… I think I see it! Up ahead!”
Kelly pointed up in the distance, and sure enough, they could see the snow covered log-cabin in the distance. It may have been small, but it was big enough for the two of them.
They pulled up towards the cabin, and parked the truck. Kelly took the keys out of the ignition, and said : “So… I hope you don’t mind, but that drive took all day. Think we can wait to unload our stuff tomorrow?”
Rita paused. Were they simply going to go in and sleep? There was only one bed in the cabin, Rita knew that, that was why she chose the cabin. She was regretting the decision now, and she was not ready to share a bed with Kelly. The girl knew she needed to say something that would stall for time.
“Sure, I’m pretty tired too.” Rita said. ‘Stupid, stupid, stupid! Why did you say that!?’ She screamed internally.
Both of got out of the truck, causing a crisp crunch noise in the snow. A cold wind blew by, reminding them of their decision to unbutton their coats.
Immediately, Rita felt the chilling air, and grabbed the ends of her coat and pulled them shut, tightly over her body. There was little warmth to be gained this way, and she hoped she wouldn’t need to hold her coat like that for long.
“Woo! I knew it was cold, but wow!” Kelly said. “Come on Rita!” She waved to her friend to follow her as she trudged through the snow to the front door.
Rita nodded and followed Kelly inside the cabin, and they shut the door, shielding them from the freezing wind.
“It’s soooo cold out there,” Rita said finally letting her coat fall free. This soon proved to be a mistake, however. With no utilities running normally, the cabin was naturally a bit chilly at all times. “It’s cold in here!” She said, shivering a little before pulling her coat closed.
“Oh right, we gotta turn the utilities on,” said Kelly, walking back towards the door, and opening it. Kelly also had to make an effort to keep her coat shut, as the wind had picked up. Rita wanted to accompany her crush wherever she went, regardless if it was a good idea, so she soon followed Kelly into the snow.
The ground was completely blanketed in white, and more than ankle deep. This made simply walking through the snow difficult, but the two pressed on to the backside of the cabin.
Once they were there, they saw a large gas tank, and a couple of switches. Kelly looked over them carefully. “This one’s electricity…” Kelly pulled a switch. “This one’s water,” she turned a knob. “And this one should be heat!” Kelly tried to turn the heat knob, but it wouldn’t budge. It was frozen in place!
“Grr… ugn…” She struggled with the knob.
“Is that one not turning?” Rita asked. “Let me try.”
Kelly stepped back, letting Rita have her shot. Rita rubbed her hands together, and put them on the knob. The warmth of her hand quickly fled her body as she gripped the knob and attempted turning it. But that knob wasn’t budging. Not even slightly. Rita gritted her teeth and adjusted her stance, trying to put all of her strength into it.
“Rita, be careful, you don’t want to-”
“Ah!” Rita lost her stance, and slipped with an audible “pmmmff” in the snow. A chilling sensation made her jump, as Rita scrambled to her feet. “Yeeeee!” Her coat had been open, which meant the snow she slipped in came in direct contact with her regular clothes. To make matters a little worse, she had slipped backwards, the motion causing her shirt and sweater to ride up, exposing a little of her smooth stomach to the cool air.
“Rita, are you alright?” Kelly said, trying to fight off a giggle. She quickly reached down to help her friend stand.
It didn’t take long for Rita to start to shiver. A blush grew on her face when she quickly moved her hands to fix her clothing. “W-where you warning me not to fall?” She said, as she quickly pulled her coat closed again.
“Actually I was gonna say not to break the-”
“YEEEE!” Rita yelped in surprise. Some snow trapped under her coat had been pressed more firmly against her body. Wanting to get rid of the sensation, she quickly pulled her coat back open. “C-cold! It’s so cold!”
“Rita, calm down, we’ve got to-”
Rita wasn’t hearing her friends reason. She wanted the snow gone from under her coat, and she wanted it gone now. The coat was in the way of her hands from being able to brush the snow, so she slid it over her shoulders. A cold breeze blasted over her, with only a sweater to keep her body warm.
“G-g-g-got to get rid of the snow!” Rita frantically reached towards her back, trying to reach for the snow.
“Get inside, it’s too cold for that!” Kelly said, trying to keep her friend from freezing herself further.
Finally listening to reason, Rita turned around, and was about to quickly run towards the door. However, moving at this pace was a poor decision, as she quickly slipped into the snow once again.
“Nhhhheee!” Rita squealed, feeling the cold sensation all over her body.
Kelly wanted to giggle at her friend’s predicament, but she knew better than to laugh. She grabbed Rita’s coat and helped her stand back up, and helped lead her back inside the cabin.
They were able to turn the lights on, but with only water and electricity, they were unable to heat the cabin. At least not by the gas heater.
Rita was shivering, and hugging herself. “W-w-w-will th-th-there b-b-b-be h-heat?” She said, looking towards her friend.
Kelly looked Rita over, showing concern for Rita’s reactions. “We can’t turn the gas on…” Kelly looked a bit frustrated and concerned, before taking notice of the fireplace. “Hmm… I think I saw some firewood though.”
“I-I-I’ll help you g-g-get it.” Rita said, turning towards the door. She had slipped in the snow so much, and she was feeling very cold. The sooner they had a roaring fire, the better.
“Um, no way.” Kelly said, stopping Rita. “You can’t go outside again. We gotta warm you up as quickly as possible. I’ll get the firewood.” She paused and scratched her head. “Umm… I know it sounds crazy, but you should probably take those wet clothes off too.”
Rita froze. “W-w-what-t-t-t?” She was hugging her own arms as her teeth chattered some. The black haired girl had chattering teeth with her clothes on. How was going without them going to help? On top of that… she couldn’t just undress in front of her friend.
“It’s a thing. You’re clothes are wet, they’re going to keep you colder. Hurry up and take those off, I’ll get the firewood.” The blonde said, heading back out the door and shutting it behind her.
This couldn’t be happening. Rita had never felt so helpless in her life. Here she had a plan to confess her feelings to Kelly, and she was going to be undressed. A dry change of clothes was still in the truck. Did she dare to at least go get something?
No, Rita could read Kelly’s face. There was concern in her eyes, and Kelly was simply trying to do what made the most sense. She always was the smarter of the two. Still, a blush grew on her face as she reached for the hemline of her sweater. Rita was going to be taking her clothes off, and her crush was going to see her undressed.
Rita slowly gripped the sweater and began to pull it upwards. Her hands almost went back to the self hugging position due to the cool air of the cabin, but Rita didn’t stop until the sweater was over her head.
She sat down and slowly pulled her snow boots off of her ankles, one by one. They were the most difficult part of any cold weather clothing to remove, and the boots were quite stubborn. It took a few rough tugs, but they were finally pulled off.
The cabin door opened, and Kelly came in holding a few logs. She carried them towards the fireplace and set them inside. Rita could see snow on the blonde’s back.
“D-did y-y-you slip?” Rita asked.
“Yeah, it’s icy out there. I’m gonna grab some more and then uhh…” Kelly blushed. “I’ll have to join you. Keep going though. Anything that’s wet can’t stay on.” She went back outside.
Rita blushed a little deeper, feeling warmth on her cheeks for the first time in a while. Anything that was wet had to go. And she fell in the snow twice which got everything wet. Which only meant one thing.
There was no easy way to say it to herself. Surely, Rita didn’t have to go that far, did she? That would have been too much. The black haired girl carefully pulled her socks free of her feet, as a different reality sunk in. Her crush, asked her to take her clothes off. It put a strange sense of eagerness in her mind as she shivered once more before pulling her t-shirt up, exposing her smooth stomach.
Did Rita want Kelly to see her like this? Part of her was embarrassed, the other part was… eager. She could feel her pulse quicken as she pulled her shirt further up. Was it because her body was try to stay warm, or was it because she was nervous?
Rita set her wet t-shirt aside, and hugged her arms against herself. Her skin felt cold and a bit clammy, as she wrapped her arms over her chest. At the same time, she felt the need to cover up. What would Kelly when she saw her like this? In the back of her mind, Rita knew that if she managed to tell Kelly how she felt, she might display herself to Kelly like this.
Then Rita thought about if she went further. She still had her pants on… and Kelly told her to take them off anyway due to being cold and wet from the snow. With her heart thumping hard, Rita thought about appearing in front of Kelly, down to nothing but her underwear. How would she react?
She had to know.
Her hands shook a little, as she still shivered from the cold, and unbuttoned her jeans. A careful hand reached down and pulled the zipper to loosen her pants, and she began to pull them down from her hips.
Inch by inch, she exposed more of her legs as the jeans slid down her thighs. ‘She’s going to see me in just my underwear. It’s going to happen. I can’t stop it. She told me to do this.’ Rita bit her lip pushing the jeans past her knees towards her ankles. ‘I want her to see me like this.’
The pants were off, and tossed aside. Rita pulled her legs to her chest and hugged herself, still shivering in the cold. All that remained on her was a plain white bra and panties. She was so undressed, and the air was so chilling. Her bra seemed tighter because of how her body reacted. She could feel a pair of stiff nubs underneath each cup of her bra. It was likely due to the cold, but Rita thought about another possible cause. She wanted Kelly to see her like this.
Finally, the door opened, making Rita almost jump. Kelly returned, holding three more logs and a fire starter.
“Okay, got everything we are ready for a nice warm-” Kelly paused, appearing a little surprised at Rita. “Fire.” She finished her sentence.
‘Oh God, she looked at me. She saw me. She noticed how undressed I am.’ Rita’s mind ran quickly.
Kelly carried the logs to the fireplace, occasionally casting a glance towards Rita’s unclothed form.
‘She’s checking me out. She likes it. She wants me. Oh please let her want me!’ Rita thought, as he blush only turned to a deeper red.
Once Kelly had all the firelogs in place, she began to work the firestarter. It took a few tries, but finally a small ember began to burn on the logs.
“Alright… that’ll be going in a minute.” Kelly said, standing back up. She slowly turned and looked at Rita. “Um… you know… Rita… um…”
Rita’s mind swelled in wonder. What was she going to say? Did she look good? Did she like her?
“Y-yeah?” Rita said, with hopes running rampant.
“You’ve got to take off everything that’s wet… and… well..” Kelly paused, looking to find the words.
Rita paused, wondering what she meant, before looking at her underwear. Her face grew redder when she realized that snow had reached her underclothing. Her underwear had to be taken off. Rita would have to get…
There was a bit of tension in the air, as the two were silent.
“I… um..” Rita wasn’t sure what to say.
“I’ll um… give you a minute,” Kelly said, blushing deeply as she walked towards the bedroom and shut the door.
This was odd. Why did Kelly give her privacy? Whatever the reason… Rita had to remove two more things for Kelly. It was by no means an easy task, but Rita had to do it. Kelly probably just made up the idea of keeping herself from getting too cold. She saw the way her friend reacted. She wanted to see more.
And if Kelly wanted to see more, Kelly was going to see more.
Rita slowly reached behind her, and took a glance towards the bedroom door, and unhooked her bra. The bra loosened and her breasts were free of the cups. As Rita expected, her nipples were protruding outward, standing firm, cutting through the cold air. She picked up the bra and tossed it towards her other clothes.
She was topless. Completely, topless. For some reason, that was giving Rita an adrenaline rush like she had never felt before. It was an amazing feeling to have. Never before had she gotten so excited about taking clothes off.
The black haired girl took another look at the bedroom door, and looked down at her midriff. Kelly deserved more than a topless girl. Rita knew that. She rubbed her hands up and down her arms for a quick bit of warmth, and then she slid her thumbs underneath the waistband of the panties, and she began to pull downward.
Slowly, her panties slid down her thighs and to her knees. ‘I’m getting naked. I’m getting naked for Kelly. She wants this. I love her, she loves me, we both want her to see me this way.’ Rita told herself in her mind, as she slid the panties off over her ankles. A casual toss towards a pile of clothes officially left Rita completely naked.
The black haired girl clamped her legs together, with one hand slipping between, while another held her breasts. It was all Rita could do now, as she waited for Kelly to come out of the bedroom.
She glanced at the fireplace, and saw that the fire had grown. The flickering orange light gave a pleasant contrast to the rest of the room, causing her to scoot closer. Rita lifted herself up and sat down to raise her hands and-
“Nhhhh!!!” Rita suddenly jumped backwards, feeling a cold sensation underneath her bare tush. Once she had control of her reaction, she saw little bits of snow, shaken off from her and Kelly’s boots. The black haired girl shivered a little, before carefully making a path closer to the fire that didn’t involve sitting on snow.
After several minutes, the bedroom door opened. Rita turned to see Kelly, with a blanket over her shoulders, and a blush on her face.
Rita’s heart raced as she covered her intimates. It was really happening. She was naked, with no form of cover, and her crush was seeing her like this. This was it. The moment of truth.
“I see the fire’s going strong,” Kelly said, walking forward and dragging the blanket along with her.
“Y-yeah. It feels nice.” Rita said, trying not to let her nudity distract her. She held her hands closer to the fire, warming her fingers.
“Rita, wait. You can’t just warm the extremities like that, you have to-” Kelly paused, with a stunned face, as if she thinks she just walked into a trap. She knew the answers to fighting off the cold, and one of them was going to get close. “Use…a blanket.”
Rita looked at the blushing Kelly. She was wrapped in a blanket, which she assumed was found on the bed. Why did she take so long to answer? She couldn’t be… could she?
“You mean like… that one?” Rita pointed at the blanket Kelly was holding.
Kelly smiled through a deep blush. She moved her hand to part of the blanket, and unwrapped it from herself. Rita wasn’t prepared for what she saw next.
The blonde was completely naked underneath the blanket. Every article of clothing had been removed from her body, leaving her just as naked as Rita. Time seemed to move in slow motion, as she slowly approached and knelt down beside Rita, lending part of the blanket to wrap around.
Rita was breathing deeper. Both of them were naked, and they were going to share a blanket. This was too good to be true.
The black haired girl gripped the blanket, and partially wrapped it around her cold body as Kelly sat down next to her. Both naked girls sat down, blushing deeply as they shared a blanket by the fireplace. Both girls were slowly warming up, and eventually made eye contact after a long silence.
In Rita’s head, she screamed at herself. ‘Do it! This is your chance! This is not a dream!’
“U-um… Kelly?” Rita’s voice shook a little.
“Y-yeah?” Kelly replied with a quiver to her voice.
“I… I have to say something. We’re close friends… but I wanted… I wanted to… be closer.” Rita cringed and looked away. “It’s like… I… I…”
She was cut off when she felt a hand turn her head towards her friend.
Kelly had a big smile on her face, accompanied by a vibrant blush. “I do too,” she whispered. She put her hands on Rita’s shoulders and drew her closer. The blonde put her face close to the black-haired girl’s face, holding her in a tight hug, before she finally kissed Rita on the lips.
Rita’s eyes widened in surprise, having reality torn apart in her mind for a moment. When she recovered, she hugged Kelly, and began to kiss her back. Their arms wrapped around each other as the blanket slowly slipped off over their shoulders. They closed their eyes out of disbelief as they shared passion for the first time.
Finally, the kiss broke. Then Kelly said, “You know… a good way to stay warm… is to share body heat.”
