Les petites vagues

Little Waves

The sensations are super strong, truth be told. For the first time, Amélie’s favourite cousin has brought his girlfriend along to the big family get-together. Witnessing the young couple’s electrifying connection, the 13-year-old girl is unexpectedly overcome by waves of sensation. Driven mad by furtive caresses and yearning sighs, Amélie spontaneously slips into the pool to cool off a bit. But, little ripples can be enormously powerful too.
