Tim and Vanessa are spanked together.
One of the women who she met last week complemented her on her nice crucifix and when Jill told her that Hob had given it to her. Jill was rewarded with a knowing smile. The sermon was once again set aside by a divine inspiration now the minister was going to preach on the book of Ruth. It was an interesting story of a woman whose husband dies and with a little help from her mother in law marries well to a rich farmer named Boaz.
The minister read from Ruth;
Wash thyself therefore, and anoint thee, and put thy raiment upon thee, and get thee down to the floor: but make not thyself known unto the man, until he shall have done eating and drinking. And it shall be, when he lieth down, that thou shalt mark the place where he shall lie, and thou shalt go in, and uncover his feet, and lay thee down; and he will tell thee what thou shalt do. And she said unto her, All that thou sayest unto me I will do. And she went down unto the floor, and did according to all that her mother in law bade her.
Holding hands in the pew, Jill innocently rested their hands on her leg. Hob could feel the shape of her garter through her soft dress and slip giving him a stirring feeling. He hoped that it did not show. Once a month after the sermon ended it was time to go to the altar and take communion.
Kneeling on the prayer rail next to her, Hob was enchanted by the warmth of her closeness and the redolent of her perfume. When she leaned forward to dip her bread in the wine, he had a sidelong glance as the white lace collar of her dress opened momentarily showing her breasts nestled in a lacy white garment.
That was distracting.
He had a strong desire and passion to possess her beauty and make Jill his lover. Her soft girlish gentleness and passivity brought out his patriarchal fantasies. It did not help that the bible teaches women should be submissive and defer to men. After Church they sat on their bench again watching the moon over the lake talking and she asked Hob some questions about the sermons.
"Hob when the angel overshadowed, Mary did they like, did they have sex or something?"
"No I don't think so it is all symbolic and mystical and we should just accept it at that level," he replied.
"I guess angels don't have sex with people?" she considered.
"No actually they did have you ever heard of the Nephilim in Genesis? That is what they called the men of renown who were fathered by angels with the beautiful women of the earth." Taking her Bible and opening it to the place Hob asked her to read.
That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
"So the sons of God must have been angels?" she exclaimed.
After a few moments she asked, "In the story of Ruth did the mother in law tell her to sleep with Boaz?"
"Probably not however she did tell Ruth to clean up and put on a nice dress and do what he asks, but Boaz was an honorable man so probably nothing happened," he insincerely suggested. "But then again he gave her six measures of barley and then married her that morning when he bought the land that was owned by her mother in law. It was a package deal; Ruth came with the land he bought."
After sitting holding hands for a few more moments, Hob leaned over and softly kissed her. She was enchanting in the moon light. He kissed her again and this time she kissed back. "I am not very good at kissing," she started apologizing but placing his finger on her pink lips he simply said "practice" and kissed her slowly once more.

When they walked to her door, Hob asked if he could come in.
