"And who are you?" she asked softly, her voice a soft wind whispering through leaves.
"Your humble servant, milady," he replied, knowing instinctively it was the only reply he dared make.
"Very good," she said. She held up the water jug. "You can come here and water me. I get so parched in these summer months."
Trembling, he approached and took the jug from her, upending it. A torrent of clear, cool water splashed out, onto her upturned face, running through her hair and cascading over her breasts. Her clothing, already insubstantial, melted away as he poured, till she stood gloriously naked before his gaze. Still he poured from hands gone very shaky suddenly, directing the stream over and around her, down sinewy shoulders, over her taut back muscles, across the firm globes of her buttocks. She shifted and sighed pleasurably under the water's stream.
Finally the jug was empty. She stood there, toes buried deeply in the earth, arms stretched high. The water was crystal beads on her nut-brown skin. She turned to regard him, and her arms went around him with a strength he wouldn't have believed.
"Now," she purred, her voice low and pleased, "how can I reward my servant?"
She raised her mouth to his, and his head spun, but his body responded, and his clothes melted away as well, and the two of them entwined there in the glade, sunlight drifting around them, the woodland sounds a soft susurrus of approval.
