“God, it was hot! Forget about frying an egg on the sidewalk; this kind of heat would fry an egg inside the chicken.”
― Rachel Caine
I was panting. I couldn't catch my breath. My lungs were about to explode. How dare Niall convince me to take me running and at the start of blooming season!
Yes, blooming season, it's here and my heat was there, vivid, and annoying. I've tried to distract myself this past week by keeping myself busy but not even this intense workout could've helped.
"Can we have wa...a water break?"
"What?" Niall breathed, "Oh, yeah, of course."
I practically stumbled inside of the house and headed straight towards the kitchen. The water wasn't enough. Two glasses of water wasn't enough.
"Niall, we are never doing that again."
He lightly chuckled, "Agreed." He bit at his lip, letting his face turn serious. "Are you sure you're okay? You look exhausted."
What was I to say? That this was the season my hormones rocketed through the roof?!
"Uh...Yeah. I'm fine. I think I'll just lay down for a while."
"Oh no, that's not healthy. Can't lie down after exercising . Come on, let's watch a movie."
I gulped. This means kissing. A lot of kissing. It's what we did. We'd put in a movie and not even watch it. I've missed out on some of 'The greatest movies of all time', Niall's words. I guess I'll never know if Cady got back at Regina or if Craig got high that Friday.
The fact was that we couldn't initiate kissing because, do to my heat, I'll want more and I can't give it. That's what Alpheus was after and I've fought so hard to stay true to it.
I nodded anyway and whispered, "Sure."
This was a bad idea. The worst of ideas. I was needy and wanting the first five minutes and when Niall put his arm around me it felt like I was going to explode. He started kissing on me and I couldn't help but let out a whimper.
"N-Niall, I don't...I don't think we should this time."
He pulled away with a frown on his face. "Is it me? Is it because I'm sweaty? I can go shower."
"No, no, it's not you. I just think we shouldn't this time."
"Oh...Um, okay." He slowly nodded and removed his arm from behind me and watched the movie. I sighed and leaned my head on his shoulder and grabbed his hand to wrap around me again. "I still want to cuddle," I mumbled.
I felt his chest move in a slight chuckle before I heard him sigh.
It was night and I had gotten out of the shower when Niall passed me in the hall. "Hey," I smiled.
He turned and stopped to look at me. All damp hair and handed down pajamas. "Uh...Hi."
"Can you help me read one of those books? I really like the pictures."
"Sure," he smiled.
Ten minutes later and not one page was read. On the pull out bed in the living room was where Niall eagerly kissed my lips. My hands were shakily on his shoulders, trembling with nerves as to what my brain might tell my body to do next. I pulled him closer to me, his body settling between my legs, a place not so decent for a young fairy like myself. I didn't care though, as long as Niall was holding me I didn't care. "You're very grabby today," he mumbled, pecking at my lips.
I sighed a delighted sigh and said, "I can't help it," before slanting my mouth onto his.
I felt an ache in places that I never knew could be so sensitive and tilted my hips towards his in a slow, rocking motion. Niall gasped and moaned between our lips, reciprocating my actions. I wanted him even closer, I wanted to share my gift with him, I wanted him naked.
My eyes widened at my thoughts and I pulled away, shocked at my own imagination. "Niall," I breathed, hoping to gain his attention. His eyes were dazed and a lazy smile spread across his lips, "Yeah."
"I...I have to tell you something...something very important."
I slowly nodded and watched curiously as he looked between us. He snapped his head back look down at me and I frowned as he started to flush, "What's wrong?"
"Can we talk after I-um-take a quick shower?"
"You took one ear-"
"I know but I'm...starting to feel hot, isn't it hot in here to you?" he rambled, stumbling off the bed before grabbing the nearest pillow and holding it in front of him. "I'm just gonna rinse with some cool water." And he was gone.
