Bedding the Babysitter

By: Sam Crescent

She had always been comfortable in her own skin, never feeling the need to lose weight.

Her mother sat down and stared at her. “You didn’t bring any boys home.”


“You’ve been in college, and there’s been no one?”

“There have been some guys, but none of them I want to see long term.”

There had been one guy, and she didn’t want anything else to do with him. He’d bragged to the whole of his fraternity about bagging a virgin. Any attraction she’d had for him, which had been little, had evaporated into thin air. It didn’t help that she had imagined him being Jon. When she had opened her eyes seeing it wasn’t Jon had taken all the fun out of the experience.

“I worry about you.”

“No need to worry, Mom. When I find a guy I like, you’ll be the first to know.”

“That’s always good.” She patted her arm, and Elise smiled at her.

Watching her mother walk away, she picked up her cell phone, and flicked the screen up, pressing the photo app. She flicked through the pictures, stopping on the file for the Ross family. Pressing the button to open them, she looked at each one. There were loads of George and Alicia, a couple of her, the twins, and Jon. Then there was a single one. It was the day of her graduation, and she had removed her gown so she was wearing her black celebratory dress. Jon had his arm on her hip, and as she looked at the photo, she couldn’t help but remember the buzz of his hand on her body.

If he’d been in school with her, he’d have been the jock, never looking her way.

Get a grip. He doesn’t want you.

He’s older than you.

Closing the file, she concentrated on the work in front of her, and not the crush that had gotten her through high school.


Friday night came too quickly, and Elise knocked on his door. She didn’t know whether to call him Mr. Ross or Jon. Was it rude to call him by his first name? He always asked her to, but her mother told her it was rude.

“Elise,” he said, opening the door.

Before she got a word out, twin bodies ran into her. She wasn’t prepared for it and tumbled onto her ass. Both bodies were on top of her, stopping her from moving.

“Elise, you came back.”

She wrapped both of her arms around them. “Of course I came back. I wasn’t going to leave you.”

“You stopped babysitting us,” Alicia said.

“I had to, honey. I’ve only been to college.” She kissed the top of both of their heads, smiling. “I missed you guys as well.”

“Come on, George, Alicia, get up,” Jon said. “You’re going to crush her.”

“There’s no chance of that happening.” Jon picked up each kid, and she got to her feet, pushing her hair out of her eyes. “Wow, that was fun.”

“How was college?” George asked.

“I’m not finished yet. How is school for you two?” she asked.

“I think you two should go in and finish your homework.”

The twins grumbled, and Elise laughed. “I take it they’ve missed me.”

“I never knew it was so hard to get a babysitter.” He rubbed the back of his head, and his shirt lifted giving her a good view of his rock hard abs.

Her mouth went dry. “Erm, I never saw a problem, but my mom told me you had a problem finding people to take care of them.”

“I don’t know what the problem is. Every single babysitter runs out on me, screaming, and telling me I have evil spawn.”

Elise burst out laughing. “Yeah, right.” She looked at what he was dressed in, and saw he wore workout clothes. “Can I come in?”

“Sure, sure.”

“Have they eaten? Would you like me to cook dinner?”

“I’ve not fed them yet. I’ve got to head out. I don’t want to be late.”

“This must be one hell of a client,” she said.

“He is. Well, he’s something all right. He pays a lot for private sessions, and he doesn’t like to be watched when he’s working out.”

She walked into the kitchen. Nothing had changed since she was last there a couple of years ago. She had seen Jon and the kids around town when she was home, but it wasn’t the same.
