Ziz - they called her that at school and it has stuck - is on her hands and kneelers, weeding a small bed of carrots. The sun is hot on her bare back and, cheekily, the breeze flutters around her naked buttocks. Such a provocative position, she thinks, naked and kneeling in the privacy of one's own property; such freedom, such pleasure!
— from "Cracks and Crevices" by Colin Campbell
Twirling me into a spin. Prasad lightly touches the small of my back, his fingers grazing my buttocks. Was it an accident? I don't think so. Staring up into his eyes I am mesmerised by the need burning back at me, raking my face, searing though my dress to my aching nipples. My body clenches and I choke back a moan as I imagine those fingers moving lower, slipping inside my panties to caress me from the inside.
— from "Private Lessons" by Karen Lieversz
