Down the Rabbit Hole-Ch. 7-Scene 1Return to Discussions
It was the first time the way was not clear. The path looked like it ended at a barrier of some new kind of plant that formed a dense hedge. On closer inspection, there were gaps where the path should be. And through an opening in the hedge, they saw a meadow. The brush was stiff, with sharp, grabby twigs covered in small leaves and small, nondescript flowers. They pushed through a gap into the unimpeded sunshine. It was the first time they had a clear view of the sky, and the light and warmth were welcome.
For Alan and Scarlet, cavers through and through, the forest had not been that different from an environment they were used to. Nicolet, however, was used to wide open spaces of the Great Plains, and the meadow was wonderful. The feeling of being submerged was gone, and her mood lightened. Breathing in, she pulled in energy and looked around at the sky and the life around her. The meadow, however, was as strange as the forest.
The sun was wrong, too big, maybe, not quite the right color, perhaps, it was a little too red, she wasnt sure. Like so many places they had seen, the meadow was full of flowers, unlike any she knew. Nor did any of the others recognize them when she asked. In general, they were knee-high or taller, and the colors were more pastel than those at home, light blues, pinks, whites, and light purple. The most recognizable plant looked like plain old grass. There were low grasses and tall grasses that generally grew in clumps. The meadow was also full of strange birds, many that flew like hummingbirds but were larger, and insects of all sizes. None of the insects bothered them; they were all too busy with the flowers. It was a strange sight, not right, but very beautiful.
Scarlet was the first to have it happen. A branch had caught her pants leg as they pushed into the meadow. Alan watched as she examined what appeared to be a large insect. She had just commented to Alan that she swore it had a body like a human, with wings, then she touched the place on her leg where she had caught on a branch. Something felt odd, not really odd, just different enough that she felt the need to touch it. She felt a large opening in her pant leg, and what should have just snagged her pants had torn open a large gap. As she felt the fabric between her fingers, and it crumbled.
Hey, guys, she said with unfitting calmness. Something is wrong here.
They turned and looked at her, and she showed them the hole in her pants near the knee. She touched it again, and the pant leg fell off and crumbled as it hit the ground. It turned to patches of fabric and dust.
What on earth did you brush against? asked Alan.
I just got a little snagged on a branch, but it is not just me. Look at your shirt, Alan.
Big gaps opened in the fabric of his shirt.
Nicolet, its happening to you too, said Scarlet.
Nicolet looked down at her clothes and watched as her t-shirt crumbled and fell from her body. She felt warm air on her thighs as her pants fell apart around her waist and dropped to the ground. They disintegrated in her hands when she bent down to pull them back up. When she stood back up in shock, the weight of her breast caused her bra cups to fall away, exposing her nipples to the air. The elastic in her panties and bra were slower to fail. She tried frantically to hold the remains of her undergarments in place, but they crumbled to dust, and there was nothing left to cover her. There was a pile of multi-colored powder at her feet with a few shreds of cloth still weakly holding together. She stepped away from the pile in surprise, only to feel her feet come clean out of her expensive Gore-tex boots she purchased expressly for caving. She looked down and was naked from her toes to her head. Even her hairband had failed, and her hair now hung loose on her shoulders. She was horrified. Every inch of her light bronze skin was utterly exposed. Not only was she naked, there was nothing left to wear but handfuls of powder. There were no replacements.
She covered her breast the best she could with one hand and arm and covered her crotch with the other hand. When she looked up, it was even worse. Doctors Janssen and Nielander were both nude, looking stunned but making no effort to cover themselves. Sean darted for a tall clump of grass. She was too horrified to move. In truth, it was of some relief that it hadnt just happened to her. That would be too much like an all-too-common nightmare. Still, she had to look off into the meadow, which was vacant of naked bodies.
Scarlet was the first to speak, Well, that doesnt happen every day. I once had a dream like that when I was an undergraduate assistant.
Nicolet could have giggled at that if she wasnt mortified. She wasnt the only one with that dream, but this wasnt a dream. At least, she didnt think so.
Yep, was Alans reply. After a couple of seconds, he said, Something in the air, maybe? Does everyone feel okay?
Great, actually, answered Scarlet, Im not a huge fan of clothes anyway. Had it been some meadow at home, she would have been thrilled. She rather enjoyed the light breeze and the suns warmth on her naked skin.
Nicolet? asked Alan.
Terrible. This is just fucking terrible!
Do you feel sick?
Yes! I think I am going to throw up.
How about before our clothes fell off?
Fine! I felt fine fucking fine.
Good, I guess. Just mightily embarrassed.
Well, everyone, said Scarlet, For the moment, this appears to be our new normal. We need to deal with it and move on. Physically, we seem okay. Its just our clothesthat, well, dont exist anymore. Even the band on my headlamp has disintegrated. Our shoes have fallen apart, but at least the ground is soft. We need to get used to seeing each other nude. Sean, you cant stand behind that grass forever, and Nicolet, youll need your hands for other things at some point.
Sean came out from behind the tall grass. When he did that, Nicolet got the nerve up to drop her hands and stand up straight. She was immensely embarrassed, but Scarlet and Alan appeared not to be, which helped. Dr. Janssen crouched down and started picking through the remains of his clothing.
Alan, can you stand up for a moment? Scarlet asked. She continued, Alrighty then. It looks like were all going to be naked together for a while. Alan and I have seen each other naked often, not often enough lately, and I believe you two have been bopping in bed, although probably with the lights off. We must get this over with and just look and get used to our nudity. It is another challenge we must overcome, like a tight cave passage.
They were standing roughly in a circle, and Scarlet took several steps forward. This is me. Have a good look. She unabashedly rotated so that everyone got a good look.
Nicolet noticed that Scarlet was not perfect, kind of pear-shaped with thigh and calf muscles that were a bit large. She had nice breasts, but they were slightly out of proportion with her lower half. Clearly, none of this bothered Scarlet. She appeared perfectly comfortable. Okay. Maybe Scarlet is right, thought Nicolet. It was just another challenge to overcome. Being embarrassed wasnt the end of the world. She could do it and was becoming ever so slightly more comfortable in front of the others, but damn, this felt off standing naked in a meadow. Then she noted Scarlets all-over tan. Nicolet guessed that this was not Scarlets first time naked outdoors in front of others. What did that matter? She wasnt sure. Scarlet stepped back.
Alan, your turn, said Scarlet.
He followed her lead. Nicolet liked this and didnt look away at first. Dr. Janssen was quite toned with nice muscles. He actually had six-pack abs. His tan was not as complete as Scarlets but still belied that he also spent time outside nude. So, this was not a huge deal to him either. Nice cock. She flushed at that thought, but it was a pleasant sight. She liked it but had to look away once she focused too much on his crotch.
Might as well get your fill now, Nicolet, so youll be less distracted by the male parts later, said Scarlet, apparently reading her mind. Its just the male body, and his is rather nice if you ask me.
This further embarrassed her, but she wanted to look and did. Dr. Janssen was halfway through his rotation, and the one thing he didnt have was a very attractive butt. It was too flat, at least in her estimation. It seemed that no one was perfect, and she did not look away this time as he completed his spin to face her again.
Hopefully, you can get used to looking at an old naked guy, Nicolet, said Alan. I mean, hopefully, it is not that bad.
Noits not bad at all. I mean, it doesnt bother me to look at you. I mean...
It is okay; I know what you mean.
Next, it was Seans turn. Nicolet was slightly irritated at Scarlets comment about the lights, but she was right. This was the first time she had seen Seans body so explicitly. He stepped forward and turned around more quickly than the professors had, then stepped back. Not bad, really. Not Alans body, but he was fit, not as defined, but fit. She knew that cock, had even had it in her mouth before they leftif he had only returned the favor. How she wanted that. Sean was pale compared to the professors and her natural brown tint. Oh, God! Now it was her turn.
Nicolet? asked Scarlet.
She stepped forward and stood there, still for a moment, getting used to the eyes on her. She said, This is so embarrassing.
Why is that? asked Scarlet.
I have just not been naked in front of others, I mean besides my parents, doctors, and Sean, in the dark. She did not mention a couple of other college boys.
That is a shame. Youre lovely, said Dr. Janssen. She swelled up inside with that compliment and began her slow revolution; she did two. Now enjoying the feel of the air on her body, on her nipples, and between her legs.
For his part, Alan was sincere. She was a fine-looking young woman. Taller and fuller-breasted than Scarlet. And trim and shapely, but not with the muscle definition of his lover. Nicolets skin was smooth, and her bush was reddish, more so than the hair on her head. She seemed to be so prim and relatively innocent. She was turning him on, but he quickly fought those feelings down, judging them as inappropriate.
Okay, guys, said Alan. Now that is over, we need to dig through the piles that were our clothes and see if there is anything worthwhile remaining.
Scarlets tactic worked. Nicolet was no longer paralyzed and started rummaging through the remains, recognizing the colored dust that once was her panties and bra on top of the pile. She found buttons, the stuff she knew she had in her pockets, and eyelets from her boots. There was nothing that she had forgotten. One hopeful thing was that the leather layer of her boot soles had survived, and she might be able to make a pair of sandals. She would need something for straps. Not so hopeful was her headlamp. They had left their helmets just inside the cave but had taken their lights along in case they were out in the dark. The non-cloth pieces were all there, but the light did not work.
They all reported results like Nicolet. Alan had more of his boots left, being more of a traditionalist using mainly leather footwear. They were currently unusable but might be repairable. At least Scarlets and Seans headlamps still worked. Alans and Nicolets had been of the same make.
Well, guys, said Alan, It seems that we are in a beyond extreme episode of Naked and Afraid, no food, no clothes, no tools, and in a strange land, maybe a strange world. This doesnt feel like earth. You agree, Scarlet?
What? I do, I guessas hard as it is to believe, said Scarlet. It is pure sci-fi, but I think we went through some kind of portal. It doesnt make any scientific sense, but what other explanation do we have? A dream? I could be dreaming this. I do have great fantasies about walking around naked in the woods. But this is one hell of a dream.
I dont think we are dreaming, said Alan. Its not some drug-induced lab experiment? We were definitely in a cave in Peruon winter break.
We should go back to the cave again and find the portal back while we still have two working lights, said Nicolet.
Seems like a stretch; we searched every inch of that cave, said Sean.
Maybe it opens intermittently, said Nicolet.
It may be our best option, said Scarlet. Should we try again?
Yeah, okay, said Alan. The point about the lights is valid, but I hate giving up the ground we have covered. We need food, but we can survive a while longer without it. Fortunately, the water from the streams has not made us sick. That was a big risk. We might have to risk some of the fruit.
They turned to go back into the forest, but the way was blocked by two beautifulnakedgirls.
