Then he pulled away and said, "I think I will slip off to the bathroom for a moment."
He took the ends of the bedsheet and started gathering it around his waist as if he were going to fashion himself some sort of crazy diaper. Then he thought better of it and just put his boxer shorts back on.
He stepped to the door and opened it just a tiny crack and peeked out. Evidently seeing the coast clear he slipped out. I put on my nightgown and waited my turn.
As soon as he was back, I set off across the living room to the bathroom myself. In the faint light I could see that Amy and Jake were sleeping separately on the two couches. Apparently it must have been too much of a bother to try to sleep together under the circumstances.
Coming back out of the bathroom, I heard Amy giggling. She looked up from her pillow and caught my eye. I found myself giggling a little as I returned her look. She was clearly looking forward to the stories I'd have for her and Cindy later. Finally I would be the one with a story to tell.
When I got back to the bedroom, Rex was already in bed. I took off my nightgown and got in next to him. He turned towards me and pressed up against me. Resting his head on the pillow, he absently traced my breast with his fingers. I could feel his penis against my leg hardening a bit. This time I got up the nerve to touch it with my finger.

"It's really kind of amazing that it does that," I said. "Of course you probably think it's silly to be impressed by it since you've had it all your life. It must be old hat to you now."
"No, actually, I've always found it kind of intriguing." He paused. "Yet -- fascinating as it is -- you still get in trouble if you try to use it as a science project."
I laughed and saw he was wearing his signature wry smile as he looked back at me.
I ran my fingers down his neck and traced his arm down to his hand. I wondered if it was perhaps too early to be thinking about this in terms of love.
