It was a cold day, drained of colour. The whole of the UK was shrouded with a mist of pessimism… However, on the upper hand it was a Friday!
Amber was on her way to her friend Carl's house. She had been invited along with a couple of other friends to a movie night in. It was a nice way to get the weekend rolling. Luckily, the journey to Carl's was only about a 15 minute walk. So it didn't take Amber long to get there.
*BEEEEEP* Amber jumped a little at the volume of the doorbell as she pressed it.
The door swiftly opened, and standing there were Carl and the other two people he had invited - Sonia and Mark.
"Hey Amber!" They welcomed her with a smile, and proceeded to invite her in.
"Just so you know, my parents are out for the weekend, so it'll just be us four." Carl explained, as Amber was taking her shoes off.
"Oh, ok then. That's fine." She replied politely.
When Amber had put her shoes to the side, she glanced to her left and was a little surprised to see Mark staring down at her toes longingly. However he soon looked away after noticing he’d been caught.
“Ok, follow me.” Everyone proceeded to follow Carl to the living room, ready to get comfortable before they put the first film on. Carl's hospitality was at an all-time high tonight. He asked his friends if they wanted any food or drink before the films began. After everyone kindly declined, the movie night got under way.
The first film everyone watched was Skyfall. Carl was quite easily excited, so he found this film very enticing. In fact, all four of the friends hardly said a word while the movie was showing.
It was about half way through the film that Amber went and got herself a drink. As she was pouring the drink for herself, she heard loud giggling and squealing coming from the living room.
"Eeeeheehee! Guys staahaahap it!" Is all that Amber could make out from the distant laughing. However, she just took a sip of her drink and shrugged it off.
When she re-entered the living room, nothing looked out of the ordinary. All three of her friends' eyes were glued to the TV screen like they had been for most of the movie.
"Oh guys, by the way..." Mark said abruptly. "That guy dies soon."
"Dude!! Don't spoil it!" The rest of them shouted.
"Hahaha!" Mark found this hilarious. He was a typical prankster kind of guy. His definition of fun was seeing other people's reactions to certain things. But behind that, he was a nice guy to be around.
A few hours passed, and the group were now on their third film. They had been pretty impressed with Skyfall and Paranormal Activity, however it was now Cowboys Vs. Aliens playing, and the mood in the room was considerably less excited.
"Hey guys, I'm just going to pop to the toilet." Explained Amber, as she left the room and headed upstairs.
"Sure thing, first room on your left." Carl replied.
Amber took the journey upstairs very slowly. It was dark, and after watching Paranormal Activity, she was regretting this decision.
Back downstairs, Carl started muttering to the others.
"This film is pretty dull. I've got a better idea!" He said, drawing the others closer.
"What is it?" Mark and Sonia both asked.
"Well here's what we'll d-"
The sound of the toilet flushing made it impossible for Amber to hear a word anyone was saying. She headed back downstairs, completely unaware of her friends' little conversation.
As she sat back down she noticed that the room was very silent, however she didn't suspect anything. There hadn’t really been a long conversation between anyone all night.
A few minutes of no one saying a word passed. Carl looked to Mark and Sonia and nodded at them. He gave a subtle countdown from five with his hand, and as his last finger went down, he wasted no time in lunging at Amber.
"NOW!" He shouted, as he grabbed Amber's wrists and pulled her to the floor.
"Oh?! What the-?!" Amber was too startled by Carl's shout to stop him pulling her to the carpet.
Mark swiftly grabbed Amber's ankles and pushed them together. He then sat on top of them, pinning them down.
Carl did the same thing with Amber's wrists. While Sonia straddled the helpless girls hips. Amber was now almost completely immobile. All this had happened in a matter of seconds.
"Guys?! What are you doing?!" Amber asked with a shocked tone to her voice.
"Oh nothing, just spicing up the film a little bit." Mark replied.
"Yeah, just pretend you’re the cowboy and we're the evil aliens attacking you!" Sonia chuckled.
"I don't wanna be attacked! This isn't very funny...” Amber replied, lying motionless on the soft carpet. None of the others seemed to take notice of her though.
"Ok Mark, you first." Carl said with a worryingly excited tone.
"Gotcha." Mark instantly started dragging his blunt fingers up Amber's soft, velvet like soles. Much to her shock.
"Ooohoh my Godaahaaa! Mark stop it! Naaahaaaaha!" Amber's toes curled forcefully as she felt the fingers make contact with her insanely sensitive soles. Her feet were one of her deadly ticklish spots. Having them tickled drove her crazy.
Watching Amber squeal and laugh like a mess was very entertaining to her friends. They all watched her body tense and shake as she got tickled.
Mark's fingers never left the surface of Amber's soles. They danced and flicked across the poor girls smooth feet.
"Guys pleeheheease! Stop thisaaahaahaa!" She pleaded, but got no sympathy from anyone. Mark was just too intent on covering every inch of Amber's sensitive soles with ticklish sensations.
After a while of this soft tickling, he took a different and more forceful approach. One hand grabbed Amber's toes and pulled them back, to stop them curling. The other hand unleashed all its fingers onto the surfaces of her silky smooth feet. He tickled with huge force, and there was nothing Amber could do to stop him.
"Oh GOD no! Mark! Aaaaahhhaahaha! Pleeeheeheeaseeeaahaa!" She screamed.
"Ok, Sonia. You go too!" Mark said, looking back at Sonia.
"Alrighty then!" Sonia wasted no time at all. Her fingers swiftly dug into Amber's belly and wiggled around like crazy. The worst part was that Mark was still tickling her too!
Amber yelped as soon as she felt more fingers make contact with her skin. She wore terrible clothes when it came to protection. They weren't doing anything to help this situation.
A few minutes passed, and neither Sonia's or Mark's fingers had left contact with Amber's body. The girl was in tears of laughter now. The only thing she could move was her head and her fingers. And boy was she doing that! Her head was shaking like mad, and her fingers curled and clenched violently.
"NOONONOOOOOHHOHOO!" Her words had now just become blurred pleads for this to stop. But it wasn't going to.
Every now and then, Sonia's fingers would dip down into Amber's belly button. This would briefly make her scream.
Just when the poor Amber thought it couldn't get any worse, Carl made her world turn upside down. His fingers dropped hard into her underarms. He was sitting on her wrists, making it impossible for her to move her arms. This sent the girl into a state of hysterics!
“CAAAAHAAAHAAAAARRRRL! YOU DON’T UNDERSTAAAAAND! PLEASE LET ME GOOOHHOOOOHAAAAAHAA! OH SHITAAHAAHHA!”
Amber pleaded and begged. Her underarms were the most sensitive part of her body. They were always hairless and silky smooth, which in this case made things worse.
As Carl's fingers scrambled around in her armpits, Amber's face went bright red and her laughing turned into screams of uncontrollable giggling.
"GUUUYSSSAAHAAHA YOU'VE GOTTA STAAAAHAAAHAP THIS!! PLEEEHEHEEEHEASE!!" She begged.
"You've got to escape, cowboy!" Mark joked, as his fingers tickled the life out of Amber's tingling soles.
These words just intensified the situation. Amber's eyes were flooding with tears of laughter. Her face resembled a tomato, and her whole body was violently shaking. She could feel every single finger stroke that made contact with her skin.
"YOU WIN!! PPHHAAAAARRGHHAAHAA THE ALIENS WIN!! I ADMIT DEFEAT, EEEHEEEEHEHEEEEP!" She screamed.
Amber was at breaking point. She had never experienced tickling like this before. Just when she thought she was going to pass out, Carl spoke the words that she had been dying to hear.
"Ok guys, I think we've won. She's clearly had enough!" He explained.
The fingers gradually left Amber's body. After that, she felt the weight leaving her wrists and ankles. It was a miracle. She could move again!
It took multiple minutes for Amber's face to return to its normal colour, and even longer for her to regain her breath. Unfortunately though, her hair was all over the place. That wasn't such an easy fix...
"So how do you feel Amber? We weren't too hard on you were we?" Mark asked.
"You weren't too hard?!" Amber asked in shock. "You nearly killed me!!"
"Haha, well we didn't! That's the main thing." Sonia chuckled.
Amber looked at Sonia and raised an eyebrow. She then turned to look at Mark and Carl. The three of them instantly knew what to do.
"So Sonia..." Mark said, edging closer to her. "How do you feel about being the cowboy next?"
Sonia instantly shivered and her eyes grew wide. She made a run for the door, but was quickly caught by her three friends. As they dragged her to the middle of the room and took the same positions as they had done with Amber, the girls screams echoed softly throughout the street. This was definitely going to be a longer night than anyone had planned...
