"Mmm..." Alex moaned as she cuddled closer to the warm, cuddly, muscular musk-scented pillow. She was having the best dream ever. One she had recurring for some time in the past.
In turn of her little unconscious gesture, the warm pillow groaned as his cuddler held his well-defined torso tighter and slung her leg over his, looming dangerously over his delicate area.
Alex frowned as her pillow, supposedly inanimate, responded to her movements. She slowly opened her eyes taking in the warm sunrise peeking into the green curtains. 'This isn't my room' Alex thought. She groaned then she noticed that her pillow had this rhythmic rise-and-fall motion as if it was breathing. 'Now this pillow is so weird.' She turned her head upwards to find herself bumping onto something. It groaned.
"What the hell?" Nathan groaned as his chin hit the crown of Alex's head. Alex sat up so fast she didn't care the dizziness caused by her low-blood pressure she had during mornings and well, the hangover from the drinking last night. Then when she had registered the scene before her, she screamed. That was after she threw Nathan off the bed.
"Now, what the hell was that for?" Nathan groaned scratching his head, getting up and slipping back to bed pulling Alex with him. "You have a hangover. Go to sleep... Some work last night... Mmm" he mumbled in her hair pulling her closer.
"Wake up, you ass!" Alex screeched while Nathan winced killing his sleepiness.
"Yes, dear?" Nathan was pretty patient that morning.
"Explain." Alex sighed pointing back and forth from her to him. Nathan looked at her in disbelief.
"You don't actually remember anything about last night?" Alex nodded.
"I do remember us having dinner then the bar, the nine shots, the dancing..." her eyes bulged in realization. "YOU KISSED ME!"
Nathan shook his head. "You sure know how to forget the best part of last night."
"What? The kiss wasn't the best part?"
"Oh, so you liked the kiss?"
"No! Uh - yes. Oh, stop changing the topic. I'm missing something here!"
"Uhuh. You sure lost your memory... along with your virginity." Nathan mumbled starting to get off the bed.
"We had sex last night! Don't tell me you do not remember anything of it." Alex just shook her head.
"WHAT?! WE HAD IT LAST NIGHT?"
"Do you plan to shout out everything I say?"
"We really didn't do it, did we?"Alex asked sounding like she was pleading. Nathan gave her a pained expression and went out of the room.
"What was his problem?" Alex got out of bed, and followed Nathan.
"Hey, are you ma- oh, jesus christ! Do you even lock the door?" Alex said as she apparently walked into Nathan taking a pee.
"If it means you walking in on me, then no." He looked over his shoulder and winked at her. She rolled her eyes and sat on the bathroom counter. Nathan chuckled.
"Hey, stop chuckling, you're gonna pee all over the place!"
"Uhuh." Then he turned towards Alex.
"Hey, wash hands!"
"I know proper hygiene woman!" He mocked while washing his hands.
"Now let's be serious. We really didn't do anything last night, right?" Alex once again questionned. Nathan sighed as he turned off the faucet, shook his hands and made his way to stand in front of Alex placing his hands on her thighs.
"Hey, you're making me all wet!" Alex exclaimed as Nathan's wet hands were on her thighs. "Oh, god, it sounded so wrong." Alex bowed her head in realization. Nathan laughed.
"Shut up." Alex snapped. Nathan quieted but ran his hands over her bare thighs.
"Now do you remember anything?" Nathan questioned. Alex shook her head.
"Hey, if you're planning on taking advantage of the situation and making a break on doing it again, think again." She said with one brow raised. Nathan smiled fondly at her.
"I'm not going to. Don't worry. Three rounds are quite enough." He smiled at her. Her eyes widened. "Hey, you were the one who was begging for more. I'm just an opportunist." Alex's eyes narrowed at him. He was still running his hands up her thighs, massaging her while wiggling his brows at her.
"Ugh. You're giving me a headache." Alex said as she got down and brushed past him. She went back into the room and picked up her clothing articles scattered all over the place.
"You're leaving." Nathan said, leaning on the doorway.
"Yeah. Miss me already?" Alex joked dryly while picking up her underwear.
"Kind of. You clad in my polo without anything underneath makes a big difference."
"So if I had underwear, you'd leave me alone?" Alex said as she tied her hair, giving Nathan more skin to look at.
"'Course not. I'd still miss you. And the more I'd chase you -" He said while taking a peek at her long, lean legs.
"So you could take my panties off?"
"Again." Nathan finished. Alex snorted.
"You really want me so bad don't you?" She said as she slipped on her panties.
"Maybe. Thinking about it, who wouldn't. You know for a virgin, you're pretty good." Alex was already zipping her skirt up.
"Oh really now? What makes you say that?" She slipped out of Nathan's polo and slipped into her singlet.
"Well, besides the moaning, groaning, and cajoling, that really turns me on by the way, you begging and commanding is really sexy." Oh, Alex was really red right now. Nathan smirked at this and at her silence. "It's a shame you forgot." He chuckled. Alex caught the hint of disappointment behind the humour in his last remark. "Too bad really. 'Cause I'd love to try the last position we did…again." He winked. Yeah, back to being an ass. She didn't say anything for a while. They just stared at each other. Then the phone rang. Alex jumped in surprise and scrambled for her phone on the couch. Nathan casually reached for his phone on the bedside table.
"Hello" They both answered in unison.
"I'm fine. How's it going? ; Oh, New York's great"
"Yeah the project's going well ; it was boring, as usual."
"Oh sorry, I didn't hear my phone ringing... Uh, I was hanging out with my friends last night. ; Oh, my phone was dead. Just charged it."
"Yeah, I'll be there. Give me an hour tops. Bye. Yeah, missed you ; Yes, Crystal, I'll bring you something. Bye. Me too." And they killed the line. They were silent for a while. Alex had a serious look on her face. She was contemplating on something.
"What's wrong?" Nathan asked.
"What happened between us" Alex started her hand gesturing the both of them, "Nothing's gonna come out, right?"
"Well, Crystal and I are…" Nathan trailed off.
"Spit it out."
"We aren't dating exclusively. So its okay."
"Ugh. Fuck." She said as she slipped into her coat.
"Again?" Nathan smirked.
"You ass. I didn't mean it in the literal sense." She snapped. "Whatever. I have to go." And with that, Alex went out of the room, and headed home.
Nathan ran a hand through his hair for the third time that minute. Apparently, he was bored with Dr. Fox's lecture on non-evasive heart biopsy. Well, who wouldn't when you could always daydream about the really hot sex you had last night with you're high school crush.
His hands ran up and down her sides as she encircled her arms around his neck pulling him in to deepen the kiss. They played it hungrily slow tasting every moment as if it were some expensive dessert. Her hands ran up from his neck to his hair ruffling and crumpling it everytime he took the kiss deeper and deeper.
It was really a wonder how she didn't even remember any of it. It was the best sex he had in a while and he was quite surprised that it had to be a virgin who gave it to him.
He played with the hem of her skirt then ran his hands under it, over her thighs and squeezing her ass while pulling her to come closer to him. And she did. They were on the loveseat couch of Nathan's hotel room. Making the most of their drunken state. She moaned into his mouth, clearly enjoying what they were doing. Alex was straddling Nathan, moaning as his hand made its way to the garter of her dark lacy underwear playing with it before running his hands once again on her thighs.
Oh it was going to be good.
And what Nathan was daydreaming about was just the beginning.
Alex scrambled out of the cab throwing the driver a crumpled twenty. She hastily went to her apartment, locked the door and took off her clothes. She was definitely taking a long shower. Especially when she's cuddled Nathan for who knows how long. It wasn't that she was disgusted or anything. She just wasn't comfortable about. Sure, she played along with his advances this morning but it wasn't anything serious. It's been ten years and she's moved on. Dated several guys already the longest so far being Lucas. He's been a fun guy to be with. Very thoughtful. Handsome. Reserved and gentlmanly. Rich, in fact.
Alex was scrubbing herself for the second time. Her soap already was half the size it was when she came to the bathroom. She should, no, must, scrub off every trace of Nathan in her system. She couldn't believe that the idiot left love bites all over her. She had hickeys on her neck, at the back of her ear, and even on her thighs. God, she was definitely going to kill him the next time she saw him. She was down to rinsing when a knock came to her door. 'Must be Lucas,' she thought. 'He can wait.'
Lucas kept knocking on the door but no one answered him. He fished his phone from his pocket and pressed speed dial 3. His recei ver rang. But nobody answered still. He checked his watch. 'Is she still sleeping?' he thought. He gave another knock. And then someone answered.
"Just a minute." came her voice. 'Good. She's awa-' his thoughts were cut short when Alex opened the door. He gaped. She was clad in just her towel that ended just enough to hide her behind when she stood and her pink fluffy bedroom slippers.
"Hey, Lucas" Alex greeted. Well that sure did bring him back to reality... The reality of him, getting a full view of her bossom...with lovebites? Now his eyes were wide.
Shit! Alex thought. God, I should have changed before opening the door.
"Lucas, I can explain." Lucas frowned. And Alex grabbed his arm and pulled him inside.
"Mmmm… Ohh!" Nathan exclaimed. Yeah, he was still daydreaming. In a conference hall full of doctors who were discussing probably the latest breakthrough in Medicine. The speaker coughed, pointedly. His fantasies were cut short when he noticed that the room fell completely silent. And everybody was looking at him. Shit.
Nathan was practically beet red when he realized his scandalous outburst. "Sorry," he said as he bowed down but his head shot up when he saw his pants bulging obnoxiously. Fuck.
"Ugh – Carry on. Please excuse me." Then he sprinted out of the hall and into the nearest comfort room.
"Well?" Lucas started. His back on the door Alex shifting under his gaze. He surveyed her for a while and then sighed. "Fine. Go change first." Alex went to her room in a blink of his eye. She closed the door and leaned on it taking deep breaths.
What was she going to do? Although Alex was taking deep breaths and looked calm, her insides were twisting and turning. She practically didn't know what to tell Lucas. Moreover convince him of whatever lie that was building up in her brain. She knew Lucas wasn't dumb. And she damn knows she's gonna hurt him one way or another. God, why does she have to screw things up now? She couldn't worm her way out of this one. Alex sighed. She might as well as tell him the truth. She walked towards her closet and picked out a navy blue polo shirt and white washed jeans. She might as well hide all those obnoxious marks. She sighed again. She wore her clothes and got out of her room when she was done. No make-up today, Alex.
"Lucas" Alex started. He was already looking at her from the kitchen bar. He prepared two glasses, one filled with milk and the other with orange juice. She smiled. "I..uh..I should tell you the truth."
"You slept with Nathan."
Alex jumped in surprise. "H-h-how did you know?" Lucas smiled at her.
"Gab called me last night and told me you weren't coming home for the night and that I don't bother calling you until morning." Alex's eyes bulged at this. Oh, Gab was sure going to get a piece of her fist later. Lucas caught on with Alex staring and said, "Don't kill Gab. And I'm not mad."
"Why not?" Alex asked, confused. She sat on the chair on the opposite side of the counter, directly facing Lucas.
"Well, I haven't really been, you know. Faithful"
"Oh…So you've slept with other girls."
"Yeah, sort of."
"So with guys then?"
"No, no! I'm straight. Yeah, I hung out with other girls but I haven't really slept with them."
"Oh." Alex said. "So you're a virgin?" She blurted out. Lucas was caught off guard and Alex saw the surprise in his face. She laughed. He fell silent.
"Ohoho- Hahaha! Ehem. Sorry" Alex straightened up. "So that means…we're not going out anymore?"
"If that's what you want."
"So it's alright for you if we continue seeing each other."
"Well, yeah. You're kinda my friend already."
"You've been Oh-ing since I got here. Wasn't it enough last night?" Lucas said. Alex caught on with his joke and glared at him, turning red in embarrassment. It was Lucas' turn to laugh now. "Hey, this is just payback." He grinned. Alex sighed. She went down from her chair and went to where Lucas was. Then, she hugged him. She just hugged him and they stayed that way. He stroked her back in a soothing way and she nuzzled her forehead deeper on his neck. She could practically fall asleep on him.
"But you know, I don't understand."
"What is it?"
"Well, you didn't get mad. You didn't throw a vase or something. You didn't even hit me."
"I don't want to. And besides. We're dating. It's not like we're married…yet."
"Are you proposing?" Alex looked up to him. He grinned.
"No. Not yet."
"Now you're making me feel all guilty again." Alex said as she laid her head on his shoulder again. He chuckled. Alex could feel the vibrations emitting from his chest transferring to her head. Lucas was really tall…and lean. And Alex liked hugging him because of that. Lucas figured on their fifth date that Alex was the touchy-feely type of girl and he didn't mind it. He kind of enjoyed her treatment. Especially when work was stressing him out. Yeah, he was gonna miss this with her. As if reading his mind, Alex said, "Are you letting me go?"
Lucas loosened his grip on her waist.
"No, not that. It seems that- oh, never mind." Lucas kissed her hair and hugged her tighter before letting her go.
"C'mon, drink your milk and we'll go out. I wanna meet this Nathan guy." Alex smiled and picked up her glass of milk.
"Are you gonna punch the lights out of him?" She asked amused.
"Depends on what?"
"Just. It depends. Now get ready, I have to call Gab."
