Victoria groaned as she got out of bed on Valentine's Day. She quickly took a shower and got dressed for work in her black dress. She went into the kitchen to get a cup of coffee when she heard coughing coming from Caitlyn's room.
"Cait, are you okay?" she called from behind the bedroom door.
"I'm sick," Caitlyn responded, continuing to cough.
"Oh sweetie, I'm sorry," Victoria said, opening the door and peeking her head in side. "Can I get you anything?"
"A cup of - H-h-hetchooo! - hot tea would be great," she responded.
Victoria felt that familiar feeling in her crotch again.
"Coming up," she said , trying not to betray any signs of excitement.
She boiled water, and a few minutes later, she brought Caitlyn her tea.
"Here you go. I take it you're not going to work today," Victoria assumed.
"Nope, I called in sick. Do you think maybe you and I could watch some movies tonight, since we both don't have dates?"
"Absolutely. I'll rent a few after work. Call me if you need anything," Victoria said, kissing Caitlyn playfully on the top of the head.
Victoria was excited the whole day at work. She couldn't believe her luck, but at the same time, she was terrified that her excitement would show. Caitlyn could NOT find out about her sneezing fetish.
After work, Victoria rented a few movies and picked up a quart of chicken noodle soup from the deli down the street. She brought the items into the house and saw Caitlyn sitting on the couch with a blanket wrapped around her.
"Vicki! I'm so glad you're home!" she exclaimed. "I've been sat here all afternoon feeling sorry for myself."
"Hey Cait. I brought you some soup," Victoria greeted her friend.
"Thanks. Just put it in the microwave and I'll have it later. What movies did you rent?" she asked.
Victoria looked into her bag. "I got About A Boy, The Bourne Identity, and Sweet Home Alabama. What's it going to be?"
"Oh, definitely Sweet Home Alabama. We can watch some romance since we don't have any of our own," Caitlyn joked.
Victoria got them both drinks and put in the DVD. The movie started, and Caitlyn inched closer to Victoria so that their legs were touching.
Victoria glanced at Caitlyn out of the corner of her eye. She noticed Caitlyn's nostrils flaring. 'Oh no,' Victoria thought to herself. 'Stay calm, Vick. Don't let Cait see how much her sneezing turns you on.'
Caitlyn waved her hands in front of her face. "I have to sneeze," she announced.
Those four words, delivered in a breathless rush sent a divine shiver of anticipation through Victoria's whole body. She wanted to eat up her friend there and then, but she forced herself to remain calm.
Caitlyn turned her head and erupted into a fit of sneezes. "Ah-CHOO! Huh-HAAACHOOOO! Hashooo! Hatchmph! Haaishoo!"
Victoria's face turned beet red. "Bless you, Cait," she said quietly.
"Thanks hun, I'm really sorry about this. You probably won't be able to concentrate on the movie," she said, sniffling.
Victoria took a deep breath before proceeding. "Well, I know something else we can do," she said, rubbing Caitlyn's leg.
Caitlyn's raised her eyebrows. "Just what do you have in mind?" she asked.
Victoria took Caitlyn's hand and led her to the bedroom. They both looked at each other and then almost in unison declared: "Happy Valentine's day!"
