I was not always a guy to go out and party with friends. The only time I went out was during my birthday , my friend’s birthday or some other celebration that I had to attend because of work or friends. Thaipusam is a Hindu festival held in honor of lord Subramaniam and is celebrated in many parts of the world but especially so in Singapore. With all the offerings and the festivities that this event would entail I just wanted to stay in and sleep as I had been busy with work lately – and to be honest just could not be bothered with it all. My friends on the other hand had something different in mind for me. They had promised that we would spend the day together as they did not want me to stay at home by myself wallowing in self pity. We had come here to enjoy the festival and have some time off work. We had been here since last night and the locals had hinted about the festival and how great it would be. As I came to understand, it was an event where people make thanksgiving offerings, make their vows and seek blessings – I guess it was appropriate that I should attend and be thankful that I had friends that cared for me so much.
My friends had been there for me through out these recent hard times as well as the good times. My girlfriend of three years had just cheated on me and left me for another man. I was feeling very unmanly and lacked self confidence – it is not easy being dropped from a relationship – especially when there is someone else involve. I felt like I was not good enough and this vacation was meant to cheer me up as I got my life and self respect back. When my friends arrived at my apartment, I knew they were not going to not for an answer so they were successful in changing my mind. They sure did make me get out of the hotel room and off to the festival where already the streets were filling with people, costumes, offering, noise and laughter. The best thing was that they were there to make me laugh as well and even pay out on me being the sad sack I had been in recent times. I really needed that. I had no idea what happens at the
but I could already see that it was going to be a festival to end all festivals.
Almost as soon as we got there I noticed a pretty looking young lady standing on her own looking a little lost. I was drawn to her and the regalia caught my attention and then she turned around. She looked amazing. I felt a certain rush in my body that I had not felt since I met my ex. She had a killer smile that made me weak in the knees and I just got lost in her deep dark brown eyes. My friends noticed me too, staring like a love struck teen so what did they do to help the situation – they jokingly pushed me forward so that I bumped into her – laughing and carrying on. Not knowing what to do and certainly not wanting to offend this goddess, I extended my hand and told her my , “Hi My name is James. Just a tourist enjoying the festival and You?
She said, ‘I am Camilla and a tourist here in Singapore too. I have lost my friends, I said, “No Problems. I am happy to keep you company until you find your friends’. She seemed take a huge sigh of relief and said, “Thanks, I was really getting worried as I have never been overseas before. Are you sure you don’t mind?” I said, “Absolutely not it would be my greatest pleasure.” I stared at her. Her eyes were beautiful and she kept tucking her hair behind her ear. We chatted and laughed and became easy in each others company. I winked at my friends and they discreetly left together allowing me so alone time with my new found friend Cynthia.
After a while she winked at me then she took my hand and motioned me to follow her. All of a sudden we were moving through the festival and getting right into the theme of it. We were lost in the crowd and the moment. I could not help but admire her beauty and she had this long, white bohemian skirt that was just see through enough that I could see the G-String she was wearing underneath and a blue blouse. She looked like an angel and at that moment I did not care about my friends.
We then bought milk for the festival as an offering and whilst I made my offering I thanked whichever God was responsible for me meeting this delightful creature beside me. She was also making an offering and she then asked, “What did you give thanks for?” I instantly said, “For meeting you’. She laughed, blushed and then grabbed me by the arm and ran into the street and festival again. She had other ideas for the day and I could clearly see she did not want to stay there in the parade anymore. She asked, ” Where are you staying?” I said, “At The Fullerton Hotel in Fullerton Square’. She said, “Wow, That is amazing – it is where I am staying too.” Lets go back!” I said, “Sure”.
As we headed back to the hotel room she held my hand as we chatted non stop – her giggling at my silly jokes and it was obvious that a chemistry between us had become like a magnet attracting us to each other. I was nervous as I had been quite off my game since my ex left me however with the kind of beauty Camilla possessed, it was obvious she was not my usual kind of girl. We rushed off as two loves crazed teenagers as she took the lead and I followed blindly. It seemed like only moments but eventually we found out way back to the hotel. I had been so sad lately and all of a sudden I felt unbridled joy and wanted or maybe perhaps needed to be with someone. She was just perfect in every possible way.
When we got to the hotel she said, “I have to go up an shower and change as I have been wearing these clothes all day. Do you want to come up?’ I said, “Of Course’. We then went to her room and she sat me down in the sitting room and said, ‘Rest up for a few minutes whilst I have a shower.’ She then exited the room and went to the bathroom.
I heard the shower begin to run and could hear her humming. For some reason that humming which was in turn was a melody that the sirens of old would have been proud of and inexplicably I was drawn to her. Generally I am a gentleman and take my time and would never think of imposing myself to someone or somewhere without being asked but I was intoxicated by her aura. I wanted to waste no time so I sneaked in the bathroom and saw her naked with her back to me lathering up her hair. The atmosphere was so erotically charged within moments I had taken off my clothes and dropped them to the floor. I knew what I was doing was perhaps wrong and my common sense was telling me to leave that room straight away and not be so presumptuous but my body was forcing me to step on wards towards this most beautiful of feminine specimens.
As I entered the shower cubicle I was careful not to make her scream so moved slowly and touched her on her back with my flat palm. I felt her body stiffen and become still but I left my hand in the middle of her back for moments that became minutes and as those minutes ticked over felt her body relax and move towards my hand. I then slowly began to move my hand up and down her back making sensual movements that I could feel her body no longer tense or resist but move with. Finally she turned to look at me and I could see in her eyes that she was a shy person who did not normally do this sort of thing. She looked deeply in my eyes and I could see that she was choosing between running out or succumbing to the feeling she had. Her face expressed it all even though the running water could not let me see it clearly.
I knew this was our time. She looked at me with fire in her eyes. I was blown away when she shook her pulled her hair back. She was all I needed right now. When our lips touched, I felt a strong wave of joy. The lips spread desire and all I had to do was to give in. she pulled me towards her and run her hands all over my chest. I had missed that touch and somehow this felt like it was the first time. She was wild and I really loved it. I could kiss every single bit of her and still want more.
We moved all the way to the hotel bed and threw the cover off. I laid her down as I gently caressed her. She seemed to enjoy each bit and she was really getting into it and began teasing me too. I wanted all of her. Her soft, silk skin was against me and I needed all of her to be mine. Her hands were all over me as I closed in on her. She held on to me as I penetrated her and she looked directly into my eyes the whole time. She made faces when I made thrusts. She was wild and she pushed me over. It was her turn at it and she was doing a pretty damned good job. She was perfection; I closed my eyes as I ran my hands down her marvelous breasts. When the moment was over, I could tell that she was satisfied as was I. We laid there too shy to even look at each other, but still giggling like teenagers. It was only a little while till we both fell asleep.
When we woke up we dressed and headed to my room. She was hesitant about meeting my friends. They had made numerous calls to my cell that I had not answered – they were obviously worried about me. It was time they met her. When we walked in I looked at my friends and said, “guys this is Camilla, and we met at Thaipusam festival. I think this may be my future bride” I could tell it was going to be one great vacation.
Now five years on I am married to Camilla and we have two children. She is the best thing that has happened in my life and I thank all the Hindu gods and the Thaipusam Festival in Singapore for helping me find love.
