She had heard about Orchid Island for as long as she can remember. It was one of the constant topics that her parents spoke about as they planned for their trip to go to Taiwan every 5 years as it was their favourite place in the world. They would mention it from time to time, like when they would miss a delicacy, a place or when they remembered something funny that happened when they were there. They would have lived there had it not for her grandmother who would be living alone in their quiet little town in Dunedin, New Zealand.
Minerva wanted to see it for herself just how beautiful the island is. For a couple of years, she worked 45 hours a week, took some extra jobs and refrained herself from buying stuff she did not really need just so she can have her most deserved grand holiday. Minerva’s Mom and Dad did not oppose the idea. They also want their first born child to see the real beauty of the Island which has been the witness of most of the most romantic moments of their life. But what they don’t like is that their daughter will be going there alone.
“Minerva, why don’t you just wait for us? It will be just 15 months from now and we will be traveling to Orchid Island too! It will be more exciting if we go there together”.
“Mom, we’ve talked about this a hundred times. We cannot go there all together, because no one’s gonna be here with Nena.” Minerva continuously packs her things while trying to mellow it down to her Mom.
“But…” her Mom was getting ready to outline all the details why she shouldn’t go.
“Mom, I can do this. I am 28. I’ve been to other countries alone. Why can’t I go to your most beloved island by myself? And besides I won’t be alone, you’ve called Auntie Betty right? I will be staying with her and she has promised you the she’ll be going with me to wherever I want to be, as long as it’s in Taiwan. So really, there’s nothing to worry”.
“Alright, alright… you two. Stop fussing now. We’ll be late for the airport“ Her Dad interrupts and picks up her luggage to place in his pick-up.
Minerva woke up to the voice of the pilot announcing their arrival at Taipei airport. They were just right on time. Minerva immediately set her watch to the local time: 11:10 am. She finished all the immigration procedures and by 12:00 she’s out of the airport looking for her Aunty Betty.
Aunty Betty is her Mom’s friend who lives at Orchid Island. They own a holiday park where her Mom and Dad would always check in. Eventually the owners and her parents became really good friends. She hasn’t seen or met her personally. She would just glimpse at her chatting when she’s on skype with her mom.
She could not find her. She walked through the other gate and there’s no Aunty Betty there either. Then she heard her screaming! “Minerva! Minerva! Here Sweety! I’m here!”
She found her in her usual gypsy look frantically waving. Then she pulled at the arm of a dark haired man, who she did not notice, was standing beside Aunty Betty. “That’s her! That’s Minerva! My sister’s daughter. She’s the one I was telling you about!”
In an instant, Aunty Betty and the dark haired man are now standing beside her. His hair neatly tied up in a pony tail who took the luggage out of her hands. Aunty Betty gave her a tight hug! “Oh Tike, sorry I was late. My car broke down. Good thing Hanzi passed by and offered to help. Hanzi, this is my Tike, my sweetie Minerva. Minerva, this is Hanzi, he’s from Orchid Island too.” She gestured toward him and smiled “I know you must be hungry sweetie, but we need to hurry up because our ferry might leave us and that’s the last ferry for the day! I’m sure you want to be in Orchid Island before this day ends, right?”
Minerva did not have any time to respond as they all hurriedly went to Hanzi’s red pick up parked just at the side of the road.
“Look, almost just exactly like your Dad’s, right?” Aunty Betty smiled as she spoke as she referred to Hanzi’s pick up which close resembles her Dad’s. Clearly, she knows a lot about her parents.
“Minerva, you go sit at the passenger’s side and I’ll be here at the back, ok? It might be a little bumpy on the road and when ride the ferry, so it will be more comfortable for you to sit there”.
“Ssssshhh sweetie, it’s ok. Just sit there with Tike ok”?
Almost just after they were all seated Aunty Betty fell asleep and started to snore. Hanzi looked at her and when she giggled, he started to laugh too.
“I think she’s tired. She’s been bubbling the whole time we were driving to the airport. She keeps worrying that you might not wait for her and you’d be lost and we will not know where to find you’re here in Taipei.” Hanzi tried to explain.
“I can’t believe it! My parents kept on saying too that I might get lost here in Taipei.” Minerva said while shaking her head.
“So, what do you want to do here? Betty said you’ve been saving for this trip to Orchid Island”. Hanzi asked.
“I actually don’t know. This is my only trip which I did not plan for anything. My only plan is to just go with the flow” Minerva said while making herself more comfortable.
“Do you often go on trips alone?”
“Mmmm yeah… I’ve had trips with friends, but my most unforgettable trips are those I did alone.”
“What about you, I don’t want to sound racist or something, but you speak really good English!” Minerva asked.
“I studied in the UK. Actually I just came back from my yearlong hiatus in the UK. I studied there for 5 years, went back here then went back there again for another year. Now, I think my stay here in Orchid Island may be longer”.
“I’m putting up a business and it will certainly need my attention”.
The 2.5 hours travel to Orchid Island did not seem long because of their continued chatting amidst Aunty Betty’s snoring. He joked, she laughed. She talked about her Mom, Dad and Nena. He talked about his studies, she shared her travels.
Two days later, Minerva surfing board bumped into a big rock she was actually trying to evade as she went to get her towel. She fell to the ground and the surf board went straight to her head leaving her unconscious. Before her vision turned black, she heard a familiar voice shouting “Tike!”
Minerva woke to an unfamiliar room which filled with a distinct masculine smell. She looked around but there’s no body but her in the room. Minerva got up and started to walk towards the door when it quietly opens, as if someone was trying to be discreet to get inside. The person behind the door looked a bit surprise seeing her standing just beside it.
“Oh you’re awake!”
“Hanzi, why are you here?” They spoke at almost the same time which made them laugh for a moment.
“I was walking when I saw you hit your head on that surfing board. My unit’s close so I figured it would be best to bring you here”.
Minerva couldn’t help but to look around while saying “Ohh so this is your room”.
Hanzi helped her to sit down on the bed before saying “Yes, this is mine. I went to Betty’s but she’s not there. I saw her note on the door, which I believe was meant for you, she’s just out to buy some supplies in Taipei and was sorry that she forgot to mention it to you before you left. And just before I came here, she rang me. She told me she and her car got stuck again. So she failed to ride the last trip of the ferry which means she’ll be staying there overnight. She asked me to find you and tell you. Apparently she forgot to get you a local sim so she cannot call you directly.”
“Ohh and did you…”
Hanzi did not need to wait to finish her question. “No I did not tell her what happened to you, I don’t want her to worry. She already has some problem to fix there”.
Minerva is able to heave a sigh of relief. Then she suddenly remembered her foot. “What I can remember is that I bumped my head, I could not remember hurting my foot too. But it feels like hell now!”
“Maybe you sprained it when you fell. Here let me massage it for you”. He then reached for her foot and started a gentle massage.
“Ohh that feels good!” Minerva was arching her back a little when she suddenly noticed that she’s almost naked. She is still in her two piece bikini, with Hanzi holding her foot, her arching backwards, she could not think of any other more awkward position!
She just fell quiet. Hanzi continued to massage her foot. She looks down at him and in that same instance, Hanzi looks up. He stopped massaging her foot, but started to put light butterfly kisses on her foot and gently places some more on her leg. Minerva is left speechless as the sudden change, she wants to say something but couldn’t figure out what she was going to say.
Hanzi’s lips reached her knee and looks up at her again. His shirt rises higher and his picture perfect abbs are viewable. He’s starting to stand up and then plants a gentle kiss to her seemingly waiting lips. He continues to kiss her more passionately and with more strength. He lets out a moan and she touched his waist. She draws her hands are touching the crevices of his beautiful muscles through his shirt. Her hand draw upwards to his head and she pushes his face more deeply into hers.
“I’ve been dying to kiss these lips the moment I set eyes on you” he whispered. Minerva still can’t utter any word.
“You kept on talking while we were in my pick up and I couldn’t take my eyes off your face. I had to drive and focus on the road.” he again whispered. Hanzi kissed her lips again, this time, with much urgency. Minerva kissed back. Hanzi slowly lead her back down to the bed. Minerva followed his lead. Hanzi rolled on top of her still kissing her. Minerva welcomed her with open arms and held him really tight.
Hanzi started to kiss her neck, the side of her ears and then started to go down. He slowly removed her top togs. Minerva waited. Hanzi started to kiss again, but this time his hungry lips went straight to her left breast. Minerva couldn’t do anything but to arch her back again. Hanzi lips goes to her other breast with the same intense desire. Minerva wanted more and arched her back in ecstasy.
Minerva’s hands move from his back to his hair. Then, just when she’s not expecting to do anything, Hanzi rolled over and lay on the bed pulling her so she can be on top of him. She straddles him and his erection deeply pushes against her bikini bottoms. She can feel him pulsate underneath her despite her pressure against his body.
She begins to rub herself against him, her clitoris becoming more swollen as his cock pushes against her. He leans forward and sucks heavily on her breasts. Minerva busily dry humps him until his precum seeps through his jeans. Wanting more, Minerva reaches down and undoes his pants. He wants more of her and undoes her bikini bottoms by untying the side strings, they instantly fall off and he pulls them completely away. His erection now can be completely seen. She pulls his pants and briefs down.
He stands up “Come here my Tike” placing his hands around her small waist and pushes her to the bed. Hanzi is on top now, he reaches down and starts to rub her clitoris in strong circles as he unties her bikini top with his other hand and rips of his shirt. He parts her legs which she obliged and pushed his cock deep inside her. He grunts heavily and thrusts intensely as if he had not had sex in years. She grabs onto his waist and thrust him more forcefully into her as his testicles fill up with a full load. Her soft moans become louder and needier as they reach climax at almost the same moment, he pulls out and squirts streams of cum on her body and breasts as she continues to rub her clitoris.
Hanzi lay down beside her then pulled her in so he could give her strong bear hug. He kissed her on her nose and whispered “That was beautiful! It was perfect.” Minerva fell asleep. She woke up to the sound of door opening. It was Hanzi holding a tray of food.
“Good morning my Tike!”
Minerva started to get up but noticed that she’s naked, so she grabbed the nearest shirt around and put it on. She did not realize that it was Hanzi’s shirt. Hanzi gave her an approving look and said “You look really good wearing my shirt, I’m sure you’ll look equally good staying here on my island”.
Minerva looked at him intently and had envisioned her Mom, Dad and her Nena visiting her at this lovely and romantic Orchid Island 1.5 years from now.
