It was a long and restless night. Emi was laying on top of the covers, naked. She was on her stomach, no longer feeling the need to use her blanket as it was warm. Her legs were open and one knee was hiked up obscenely high. Refusing to fully wake, Emi clutched her fluffy pillow, squeezing it. She knew that she had to wake up, but she needed just a few more minutes.
A knocking at her door caused her head to pop up suddenly. The door was unlocked. It started to open. Before Emi could think she threw herself off the far side of the bed and hid by the floor.
“Emi?” It was Becca’s voice.
“I’m here she said,” popping her head up from behind the bed. “I was just ahh… picking up my pillow,” she said, embarrassed about having been startled.
Becca smiled that annoying knowing smile. She had a bottle of mineral spirits in her hands and held it out to Emi over the bed. “I thought you might like to remove the last traces of your ‘nines’ before meeting the guys today.”
“Oh yes, that’s a great idea!” Emi leaned over the bed and took the bottle. “Thank you,” she said, bowing appreciatively. She didn’t like that the door was wide open.
“You have morning hair. Let’s go get you cleaned up. Today is your big day, right?”
Emi nodded, wishing she could just go back to sleep but Becca was right. Better to be prepared than not. Not that she had much to prepare. But it would be nice to remove the last traces of those nines. Reluctantly, she followed Becca out into the hallway. She wasn’t quite awake yet and felt unguarded and raw as her bare feet padded along. It didn’t help that her hair was messy. Only a lover should see her this way. Once again, she started to regret this whole Resort Ambassador decision. She sighed, wishing the world would just all go away.
Becca was walking in front of her looking not at all like a Resort Ambassador. She was wearing khaki shorts and a t-shirt. Her short reddish hair was perfect. It seemed as if she had done a full reversal on the Resort Ambassador stuff. Emi didn’t like that.
In the distance, she could hear a radio playing. Lucy appeared from the far room and began dusting along the walls almost dancing like she was in a musical. Her ribbons on her shoes and pigtails matched, as usual. Today they were blue. She stood up tall and proud wearing only her regulation loincloth. As Emi and Becca passed, she spun around, snapping to attention while saluting, as if Emi were a supreme commander. Her exposed smallish breasts bouncing at the sudden movement.
Emi smiled at her antics as they walked past.
Up ahead she saw Bo mopping the floor. He didn’t say anything but nodded and smiled as she walked past. The supportive gestures from Lucy and Bo somehow made her feel a little better.
They rounded a corner and came face to face with Sam and Hannah.
Sam stopped. “Hi Becca. I like your outfit,” she said, ignoring Emi. It was obviously a dig at Emi’s lack of clothing.
Emi saw that Sam was wearing oversized shorts and had a black bandanna on her head and a red tank top. Hannah was in her usual kaleidoscope swimsuit. She was glad that Hannah at least was semi-supportive.
“Thanks, Sam,” Becca answered, trying to move past the girls.
“What’s that?” Hannah asked looking at the bottle in Becca’s hands.
Becca held the bottle up. “Just something to help Emi remove the nines. She needs to clean up before she meets the guys.”
Hannah, shifted uncomfortably while looking at her feet. “Sorry, Emi. I kind of got carried away… I mean, I was kind of drunk when I was drawing those nines on you.”
Sam shook her head in amazement. “No amount of money could get me to mentor a group of guy devs with my pussy flapping in the breeze.”
Emi winced at the crude comment.
“I’ll help,” Hannah blurted out suddenly. “This is my fault and I can help make her look dazzling”, she said, patting her every handy hip bag.
Emi didn’t want them to fuss over her. It was embarrassing, considering her lack of clothes.
“Have fun,” Sam said, walking away. “I’m going to add some unit tests to cover yesterday’s changes.”
Becca walked into the large washroom. Emi was following, but stopped, remembering a couple more tests that Sam needed to cover, she mentioned them quickly to Sam.
“Okey-dokey,” Sam said, without looking back.
Emi stood there watching her walk away. She was glad that Sam wasn’t being overly troublesome today. This was a critical week before opening day and she needed the team firing on all cylinders.
She felt Hannah’s hand in the center of her back, gently pushing.
Emi hesitated, lost in thought about everything that needed to be done that week.
“Let’s go, Emi,” Hannah said, leaning close to her ear. “Unless you want the boys to meet Nine?”
Emi ignored the taunt. “Have you finished all the UX testing? That was supposed to be done yesterday, right? We need time to make corrections.”
“Ahhh… almost?” Hannah said, fidgeting.
Emi nodded and then entered the washroom, mentally making adjustments to the timeline as Hannah obviously needed more time… Becca was waiting with some facecloths by the sink. Hannah followed her in.
Emi hesitated when she stood before Becca. “I can do this, you guys can…”
Hannah pulled out her hairbrush, washing it in the sink.
“How’s the timeline looking?” Becca asked, splashing something on a cloth. She started rubbing Emi’s left arm with it.
Emi thought about the timeline as Hannah started brushing her hair. “Other than Hannah being somewhat behind on the UX testing, I think we are doing okay.”
“I’ll get right on that after I finish up here,” Hannah said, as she pulled out her mini scissors and snipped some hair behind Emi’s ear.
Emi was surprised to be suddenly losing little bits of hair, but she trusted Hannah. She often trimmed Sam’s hair and it usually ended up looking very nice.
“It’s working,” Becca said as she turned Emi sideways so she could see her shoulder no longer had a faint nine on it. That was a relief.
“Don’t move her, I almost cut an ear off.”
Emi tried to keep still while they worked on her.
“Done, what do you think Becca?”
Becca nodded, smiling her approval as she wet her cloth with the bottle.
Emi turned her head to look into the mirror and was relieved to see that she did in fact, look better.
“Your hair looks awesome,” Hannah said proudly.
While she was distracted with the mirror, Emi felt Becca rubbing on the nine just above her left breast. It almost seemed inappropriate but it was well above her nipple, so it was probably okay.
Hannah started rubbing a cloth on her ass, which made Emi gasp a little.
“Relax, Nine, we are all girls here,” Hannah laughed, as she rubbed the cloth hard on Emi’s rear.
Emi was about to protest when Liz burst into the room. “Woah, Emi…” She said, laughing.
“Don’t make her feel uncomfortable Liz,” Hannah said, rubbing harder, causing Emi to shake a little.
Emi felt embarrassed to be caught like this, but it was all innocent enough. “Hi Liz… just removing the nines,” she said, trying to laugh it off.
“Oh great, I want to help too!” Liz said, grabbing a cloth.
Emi really didn’t want a third person touching her naked body, but maybe it would help get this over with sooner.
“Use this,” Hannah said. Giving her the cloth she was using. “Take over for me,” I just noticed I missed a spot with the trimming.
Becca started rubbing Emi’s upper chest harder. “This part is getting there, but it’s not coming off easily. You might be a little red for a while,” she said while Liz gleefully took over for Hannah on Emi’s ass.
Emi knew the rubbing shouldn’t feel intimate, but it kind of did. Why was she letting them do this?
“What will you teach the devs today?” Becca asked, trying to distract her.
Emi was thankful for the question. She needed to think about something else.. “I ahh… was thinking to start with…” she felt Hannah clamp an arm around her legs, holding Emi steady as she squatted down and started snipping away with the scissors around her runway.
Emi gasped. “Wait… not there!”
“Relax, I’m not even touching you and I’m almost done,” Hannah said as she trimmed some stray black pubes making things look a little neater.
Emi froze, not wanting to get accidentally cut. This was getting out of hand she thought as her breasts and ass reacted to the vigorous rubbing. She worried all the movement would get her cut, but Hannah’s firm hold was helping to reduce the motion. Emi tried not to move but felt she was losing her balance and would have fallen if Hannah didn’t have such a good grip around her thighs.
The door opened and Lucy stepped in carrying a stack of hand towels. She stopped suddenly, looking very surprised. “Sorry!” She said, turning her head away. She quickly tossed the stack of towels on the counter and left as fast as she could.
“No, wait…” Emi tried to quickly explain. But it was too late, she was already gone.
Becca and Hannah stood up, laughing but then bent over, breaking a gut. It was too funny! Liz was also laughing but she was still vigorously working on the final nine. She pressed harder on Emi’s ass causing Emi to step forward to keep her balance.
“Stay still,” Liz commanded, slapping Emi firmly on the ass with her bare hand.
Shocked, Emi backed away from the three girls, glaring at Liz.
Hannah and Becca also stepped back, giving Emi some room. “Oh, now you are in trouble!” Said Hannah, laughing.
Becca wasn’t laughing but she was nodding in agreement with Hannah. They both looked at Emi to see what she would do.
Liz looked sheepish. “Sorry Emi, I guess I got carried away.”
“Good luck with that,” Becca said to Liz as she and Hannah headed towards the exit.
Emi continued to glare at Liz until they were both alone in the room.
“Also, I’m sorry about the other day in the rickshaw,” she added, looking down.
Emi had enough of her. It was time to put her foot down.
Liz kept looking down. “Ben’s outside and he has some important info about the guys. Apparently Sarah is up to something and he wanted to warn you,” she quickly blurted, obviously trying to change the subject.
Emi thought about that. Ben was outside? She looked at herself in the mirror briefly and winced. There she was, completely naked. In a moment, he was going to see her. The thought made her flush, but she had to find out what he knew. Ignoring Liz, she left the room. At least now she didn’t look like she just woke up plus the nines were gone.
Outside the washroom, Ben was sitting at a nearby desk, waiting. Becca and Hannah were gone. Lucy was sweeping way over on the other side of the room and had her back to Emi. Was she facing the other way on purpose? Her loincloth butt was cute. She would have to talk to her later and explain that she wasn’t doing anything in-appropriate before rumors spread.
“Hey Emi,” Ben said, sitting up. His voice sounded confident, for some reason.
Emi started walking over to him. As she approached his friendly eyes blinked a few times, taking in all of her body… making her feel warm.
“Liz said that you have some intel,” Emi said, trying to maintain her composure.
“Uhh… yeah, umm… I was talking with Travis and he said that Sarah had told him and the other guys that you were going to be mentoring them while naked.”
“Yeah, so?” That was to be expected.
“Well, he said that she is giving an extra week of vacation this year to the dev that manages to get you dressed again. I mean, at least while you are mentoring us. She said bonus points for creativity – whatever that means.”
Emi figured Sarah would try to pull some stunt in this regard; however, this seemed below even her. She shook her head in disgust. It was hard enough just facing them like this, now it was going to be impossible to keep them under control. Her fear was mounting. Sarah was practically bribing them to harass her.
Liz overhead that as she joined them. She put her arm on Emi’s shoulders. “Don’t worry Emi, I don’t think it will be too bad.”
Annoyed, Emi lifted Liz’s arm off and turned to face her.
“I’m serious, I got this,” Liz said, confidently.
Now it was Ben’s turn to look at Liz in disbelief. “What are you talking about Liz? Those guys don’t even give you the time of day.”
“Just trust me,” she said grinning mysteriously as she walked away.
Ben and Emi looked at each other. Emi looked away, her fear mounting.
“Look, I’m on your side, Emi. I will do what I can to help. I’m not swayed by bribes,” he said earnestly.
Emi felt she could believe him. But what could he do? Regardless, it felt comforting to hear those words.
“Thanks, Ben. I appreciate it. Let’s just get today over with,” she said, trying to sound confident. She turned and headed towards the area where she expected to meet the guys. They were probably going to start showing up soon. She took a deep breath and tried to get her fear under control.
