Erotic Tales: Kimono

Erotic Tales: Kimono

A hot summer day on a country road. A young woman in her bridal dress gets kicked out of a car. Lost and frustrated, she wanders off across a sea of grass into dark woods - and discovers an abandoned house. Tired and worn out, she lies down on a bed. When she is awakened from her nap by a clap of thunder she sees a cup of steaming hot tea and a package on the floor. She opens it and finds a kimono. The bride knows she is no longer alone. But should she put on the kimono?
