Sexcapades of the Newly Married

By Ettare

For Melissa

"Thank God," I moaned and fell face first into the fluffy, white comforter. After an eleven hour, hellish flight to Honolulu in which the kid sitting next to me screamed the entire time, there was nothing I wanted to do more than sleep for a few days.

From my position on the bed, I could hear Alex rooting around in one of the suitcases before heading into the bathroom. Finally, as I was almost completely asleep, I heard the door click back open and Alex clear his throat.

"What do you want?" I asked irritably, not bothering to move my face from the blanket.

"Well," he started out and by the tone of his voice I could tell he was slightly embarrassed, "it's technically still our wedding night. Shouldn't we…?" Have sex? Though he didn't say it, I immediately knew what he was implying.

I turned sharply so I could face him. Sure enough, there was Alex standing in the nude, the bathroom light silhouetting his frame. He definitely looked uncomfortable.

Sitting up from my delectably cozy spot on the bed, I too began to feel awkward. I mean, I knew when I said "I do" that this would happen, but I guess I never really comprehended it. Oh God. Alex and I were going to have sex. Sex, for Christ's sake.

We'd never done it before. Had sex, I mean, and I was still a virgin to boot. The panic began to set in at that point. I was going to lose my virginity.

I began to hyperventilate.

"Hayden?" Alex crossed the room and sat on the bed next to me. I glanced up at him through my near hysteria and saw that he was giving me a look that looked half concerned and half exasperated.

"Y-you want to have sex."

He sighed and this time looked amused. "Yes."

I made a small, involuntary sound of shock and tried to calm myself down. We were married after all. I heaved a shuddering breath and turned to face him. For the first time, I gave his body a good, long look. He was as lean and naturally muscled as I'd felt on more than one occasion. My eyes drifted lower before darting back up and I felt heat creep up the back of my neck.

"Umm," I struggled to find the right words, "you want to put that inside of me?" Those were not the right words; I mentally cringed.

"Yes." I could tell he was finding the situation humorous.

"But… but you pee with it!" I did not just say that. What the hell was I? Five? At this point, he began to chuckle, and the chuckles eventually turned into full blown laughter. I truly was the biggest idiot on the face of the planet. I almost felt like crying.

"Hayden," Alex said when he finally regained some composure, "you're my wife and I'm your husband. We're bound to have sex."

I looked at him dolefully and somewhat ashamed of myself. Reaching out, Alex placed his hand in mine, understandingly. "But if you're not ready, I'm not going to force you to do anything you don't want to."

"What did I ever do to deserve you?" I smiled tentatively and leaned in to kiss him. I think part of my brain lapsed and forgot he was naked.

Alex just groaned as things became more heated and we both fall backwards onto the bed. I felt something press against my thigh and that's when the 'oh shit' alarm went off. I ignored it.

Alex was right. We were bound to have sex eventually. And I'd heard from various friends that it was supposed to feel…nice. Plus I knew my sister was going to hound me like a wild dog if she found out I refused to have sex on my own honeymoon. I made my decision.

"Promise me," I tried to say in between breathy moans and sliding my lips over Alex's neck. I felt his hand slip under my shirt and I pulled away fully. "Promise me you'll be gentle."

He reached both hands out to cup my face and place a kiss on the tip of my nose. He really was the sweetest man I'd ever met. "I promise."

Author's Note: Well, I had a lot of fun with this one. It kept me awake till I finally got up and hashed the whole thing out (3:00 am crack fic). As for the inspiration, a good part of me still finds sex kind of gross. Long story short: this will probably be me on my wedding night.

I'm thinking about making it into a mini series or something. I already have an idea for a second chapter at least. Don't be surprised if this suddenly has a part II!
