Hours later i was out of breathe and laying on the matt as Harry’s feet danced around me. I closed my eyes, trying to catch my breath. I could hear Ariel talking to me but i was so exhausted i couldn’t make make out her words.
“What’s wrong, have you fallen and unable to get up?” Harry taunted as he danced around me. I glared at him.
“Oohh, if looks could kill, i’d be dead by now.” He said, grinning at me. I ignored him, groaning as i sat up. My muscles ached and i was covered in sweat, looking like i had just got baptized. Of course, Harry was sweaty to, his curly locks sticking to his forehead and sweat stains dotting his shirt.
“Oh, gosh it’s hot.” I whined, wiping my forehead on the back of arm. Harry stopped circling me, stopping to stand in front of me. He grinned at me.
“Yeah, you’re right. it is hot.” He said, taking his gloves off and letting them drop to the matt beneath him.
His arms crossed over his stomach, grabbing the bottom his his shirt, tugging it up and over his head. My mouth made a little popping sound as he tossed it out of the ring, leaving me just a few seconds to appreciate the sight before me.
His muscles were toned, flexing with every movement he made. The birds on his chest moved as he flexed, the dark butterfly standing out against his tan belly. His eye landed on mine and i knew i had been caught staring at him. His plump lips turned up into a smirk.
“You like what you see?” he asked cockily. I rolled my eyes, quickly standing up.
“I’m tired.” I said, stretching my arms above my head as i yawned. We have been at this for hours. Ariel nodded her head.
“Yeah, it’s getting late to. You can take tomorrow off, i know you’re going to be really sore in the morning. When you get home, take a really hot bath, soak for about twenty minutes. It’ll help with the soreness. You did good, i’m proud of you.” She said, smiling at me. I smiled tiredly back, happy that i finally get to go home. I climbed down from the ring, leaving Harry and Ariel alone as i retrieved a bottle of water from the ice chest Ariel had managed to get.
“Hey, you ready to go?” A female voice said from behind me. I turned to find another girl in the gym, staring at Harry.
“Yeah, let me go get my stuff from the locker room.” Ariel said, catching the girls attention. She nodded, dropping her dark eyes to the ground as Harry gave her his most charming smile. My stomach twisted.
“Who are you?” She asked curiously.
She was tall, about five foot eight. She wasn’t skinny but she wasn’t big big either, looking healthy with the curves she pulled off. Her dark brown was curly, hanging a few inches below her shoulders, in a little bit of a mess from the wind outside. She had a tiny nose and light brown eye with a hint of green in them. Her long legs were decorate with denim jeans, her torso sporting a black tank top with a denim jacket. She eyed me, waiting for my reply.
“I’m Nichole, one of Ariel’s friends.” I said, holding my head a little higher as she gave me a once over. She nodded her head, looking everywhere else in the gym except Harry.
“I’m Fernanda, Fer for short. It’s nice meeting you. I’m Ariel’s cousin.” She said, giving me a polite smile. I smiled back, turning my head towards the locker rooms as Ariel emerged with her stuff.
“Alright, let’s go. Oh, Nichole. Here’s my number, i want you to text me. Maybe we can hang out sometime.” She said, grinning at me. I nodded my head, grinning back at her as i took the slip of paper. I grabbed my jacket from where i had thrown it and followed behind them.
“Hey, whoa, wait on me.” Harry said has Ariel shut off the lights, leaving him in the dark. I could hear his heavy foot steps heading my way before i heard a muffled curse and a loud thump. Ariel flipped the lights back on just in time to witness Harry getting up off the floor. I snickered to myself, thinking he deserved it.
Once Harry was with us, she re-shut off the lights, locking the door behind us. We bid our goodbye’s Harry and I going one way while Ariel and Fer go the opposite. The walk was silent for a few minutes before Harry awkwardly cleared his throat. I looked up at him, raising my eyebrows.
“Um, i’m kinda in the mood for Starbucks, do you want to go with me?” He asked, looking away from me as we walked. Wait, was he asking me out on a date? The thought didn’t last ten seconds in my head before he shot it down.
“And no, before you get the sick idea, it’s not a date. I know the others are gonna want some to, and i’m not carrying all that by myself and you sure as hell ain’t walking home alone in the dark. Take this right.” He said, pushing me off the sidewalk and onto another street.
“If you was going to make me go anyway why did you ask?” I growled, my eyes glaring at the new street in front of me.
“To make you feel important, now walk.” He said, pushing me further down the street. I ignored his jibe and continued to walk.
Soon enough a Starbucks was found just around the corner, the little building looking a little vacant from the lack of customers at the time of night. I looked through the window, spotting two girls working. One was behind the counter and the other was sweeping around the tables. We walked through the glass door, catching their attention.
The one behind the counter was rather short, her black hair a little wavy as she flicked her bangs out of her brown eyes. She smiled at us, ignoring my clothes as she took our orders. She smiled up at Harry, his green eyes glancing down at her chest. My eyes followed, finding what he was looking for. White letters were bright against the black background of her name tag, spelling out Ashley.
“Hello, Ashley.” He said, his voice deep and raspy. Even my kneed got a little weak and he wasn’t even talking to me. Her cheeks were tinted pink by the time was got our beverages. I turned around,fully prepared to leave when i ran slap into the other girl.
“Oh, my gosh, i am so sorry!” She gushed, her brown eyes widening. I shrugged smiling her her to let her know it’s okay.
“I’m Sarah by the way.” She said,wiping her hands on her black skinny jeans before offering me one. I took it shaking it.
“I’m Nichole. It’s very nice to meet you.” I said, giggling a little. She did the same, flicking her hair away from her face.
“We have to get going but i’ll contact you soon.” Harry said loudly, obviously wanting me to hear. I sighed, rejecting any feeling that started to bubble up in my stomach. I refuse to deal with this tonight. I nodded at Sarah, biding a silent goodbye as i snatched a bag from him, grabbing one set of drinks from him a little more gently before stomping my way out of the shop.
I lead the way home, refusing to let him anywhere close enough to hold a conversation. He tried multiple times but each was rejected. We finally made it to the house, much to my relief. I busted through the door like i own the place, setting all the drinks and stuff down on the counter int he kitchen. I gathered my things and took them to my room, leaving the boys to hog all the rest. I needed a shower and a good nights sleep.
