Everything about her drew me in. From her captivating smile to those nipple piercings she used to love me tugging on. Her body is pure perfection—smooth tanned skin covered in ink I gave her, and surface piercings on either hip I loved to tease with my tongue. Two years ago, at the height of our love—the height of us—she woke up and packed her stuff into a single small suitcase… Read more.
