“I'm falling so hard and so fast in love with her, man,” Justin spoke to Aaron. They were waiting in Krystal's kitchen to go out to dinner while Krystal got ready upstairs and Courtney assisted.
“She's amazing, isn't she?” Aaron smiled, knowing that it wouldn't take long for Justin to be madly in love with his best friend.
“She really is,” Justin nodded and ran a hand through his hair, “I've never met anyone like her in my life.”
“She's definitely one of a kind,” Aaron agreed, “I'm not sure where I'd be if she wasn't a part of my life. She's always been so supportive and always had my back, no questions asked. There's not too many people I can say that about in our line of work. Even other famous people, it just seems like they're only there until you stop being able to do things for them. Then it's 'fuck you'.”
“I can see why y'all have been friends for so long,” Justin spoke, “I've known her a week and she's already become my best friend. I don't wanna go back to life without her. Ever. I dunno if it seems too soon to you or what, but I can really see myself spending the rest of my life with her. I want to marry her and start a family some day and if I keep falling for her the way I am, that day may come sooner rather than later.”
“As long as you don't hurt her, man,” Aaron shrugged, “I've seen her heartbroken so many times over the last asshole she dated. She deserves someone who's gonna treat her right and give her the world because when she commits her loyalty to someone, it doesn't waiver. She's loyal until the end. I can't tell you how many times she's had my back, even if I was wrong just because she was loyal to me. Of course, she'd call me out on my shit when we were alone, but she always stood strong beside me against the rest of the world. She's one of the only people in this world that I trust completely.”
“She's really been there for me and had my back the last few days,” Justin admitted, “Probably more than any other person ever has. And not only is she breathtakingly beautiful on the outside, but the inside matches as well. I dunno how I got lucky enough to get her because lord knows I don't deserve it. I just hope I don't screw anything up because the last thing I wanna do is hurt her.”
“That and if you hurt her, I'll have to kick your ass,” Aaron chuckled, “For real though, she deserves the world. I hope you're willing to give that to her.”
“I am,” Justin nodded his head and licked his lips, holding Aaron's gaze for a moment to show his sincerity, “I just hope her hate of the spotlight doesn't become a big issue. I know she doesn't want people knowing who she is, but I'm not sure how I'd hide her from the world. I'm not even sure I want to, cause the way I'm feeling right now, I just wanna shout to the world how amazing she is and how I'm feeling about her.”
“She went through a bunch of shit with me in the beginning, so you can't really blame her for being a little leery of the situation,” Aaron frowned, “But I get where you're coming from. The one thing about her is that she's always willing to sacrifice things about herself for the people she loves and if it's that important to you, it may take time, but she'll sacrifice that for you and let you tell the world about her. I don't think she'll ever not cherish her privacy, but I'm sure there are certain things outside of her comfort zone that she'd sacrifice when she's ready.”
“She was telling me about her ex today. Darion? I think his name was?” It was Justin's turn to frown, “And she told me how he used to beat her up and cheat on her all the time. I didn't let her know, but it literally made my blood boil and I still want to find him and kill him.”
“I hate that son-of-a-bitch,” Aaron's jaw clenched, “He was never good for her and he always treated her like shit. That's part of the reason she moved down here, ya know, to get away from him and the shit he did to her.”
“She hasn't told me too much other than what she said earlier,” Justin informed.
“He was basically stalking her when she finally packed up and left. Threatening her life and shit. When she got down here she was covered in bruises from him beating the shit out of her yet again. I wanted to kill him the minute I saw her. I still do,” Aaron shook his head, trying to rid his mind of the memory of Krystal's bruised body, “He was never good enough for her and I wish she would've gotten out a long time before she did, but I'm just thankful she's here now and safe.”
“I'll never let anyone put their hands on her like that again,” Justin's anger flared at just the thought, “I will kill any mother fucker that puts their hands on her. Shit, I'd probably lose it if somebody looked at her the wrong way.”
Aaron chuckled, “She's a pretty tough cookie though, I'll tell ya that. She can definitely hold her own.”
“One of the many things I love about her,” Justin smiled as Krystal and Courtney appeared at the top of the stairs, making their way down to their dates.
“You guys ready?” Krystal asked, flinging her purse over her shoulder.
“Yeah,” Justin and Aaron stood from their respective seats, “You look gorgeous, Baby Girl.”
Krystal winked at him, “Thanks, Boo.” They made their way out to their cars, Aaron driving his and Justin driving his own. They called their goodbyes as they headed towards the restaurant.
“Aaron really loves you,” Justin commented to Krystal as he reached over to take her hand.
“He does,” She smiled, “I love the kid to death. He's always got my back,” She looked at his profile and studied him as he drove, “Thank you for doing this tonight,” She was referring to him agreeing to a double date so that she could tell them about his lifestyle, “It really means a lot. I know you've got a shit ton of stuff on your plate, but I really appreciate this.”
“You don't have to thank me, Baby,” He smiled warmly at her, “I'm glad we're doing this. It's taking my mind off stuff.”
“Good,” She nodded as they pulled up outside of the restaurant. He turned the car off and got out quickly, jogging around to her side to open the door for her. They stood their for a moment while Aaron and Courtney parked and got out as well. The four of them headed inside and were seated at their reserved table immediately. It was in a dark lit corner, away from prying eyes and ears. They placed their drink orders and decided what they'd each have for their meal before the conversation picked up.
“You look happy, K,” Courtney commented, noting the smile that hadn't left Krystal's face.
“I am,” Krystal smiled and reached for Justin's hand under the table, “I'm glad you guys agreed to come out with us tonight, cause there's a bunch of stuff we need to tell you.”
“You're not pregnant, are you?” Aaron asked with a frown.
“We've only known each other a week, Aaron,” Krystal rolled her eyes, “I wouldn't even know if I was by now, but no. I'm not.”
“Good,” He dramatically wiped his brow and let out a sigh.
“Anyway, there's some stuff about Justin's life that I haven't been completely honest with the two of you about and I finally got the Okay to tell you about it today,” She spoke, hoping that Aaron and Courtney wouldn't be mad. When she realized she had their full attention, she continued to speak, “Justin is the leader of one of the most prestigious gangs in the US and Canada. His friend that passed away the other day was, I guess you could call it a 'Regional Manager' for his gang. He's got people all over that run the areas, but we ran into some serious shit when we were in Seattle because a lot of people want him dead.”
“Oh my goodness,” Courtney spoke, shaking her head in disbelief, “So, is this like a dangerous thing? Could you guys get killed?”
Krystal shrugged and squeezed Justin's hand under the table, “I guess that's always a possibility, but hopefully it won't come to that.”
“This is ridiculous,” Aaron spat, “Justin, I'm sorry, but what are you thinking, Biff? You don't need this in your life. I don't wanna see you get hurt just because you fell for some Gang leader!”
“I'll be fine, Aar,” She spoke softly, “I know how to take care of myself and Justin will be there to protect me if anything ever happens.”
“Yeah, 'til they find you and shoot up the condos some night while we're all asleep,” Aaron's frown deepened.
“That's not gonna happen,” She responded, “Listen, we're all safe and I just didn't wanna have to lie to you guys. You're some of the most important people in my life and I hate keeping things from you.”
“I promise I'll do everything in my power to keep her safe,” Justin chimed in, “I've been doing this for years now and I know what not to do. Like I told you earlier, Aaron, I'm really falling for her and the last thing I want on this earth is for her to be unsafe or unhappy.”
“Well, isn't she unsafe by just being your presence?” Aaron gave Justin a pointed look, still showing his anger.
“No,” Justin shook his head, “Only certain Gangs even know who I am and I already told her I wasn't gonna risk putting her in a situation like we had in Seattle. I just...didn't think it would come out the way it did.”
“You can't afford to 'Not think', when it comes to my best friend!” Aaron nearly shouted.
“Aaron, calm down,” Krystal warned, giving him a look, “I know you're just concerned for my safety, but I'm seriously fine and I'll be fine in the future. We didn't tell you so that we could get an hour long lecture about my safety. I'm a big girl. I know what I'm doing and what I'm getting myself into. I love you and I appreciate the fact that you care as much as you do about me, but you gotta trust me.”
Aaron let out a deep breath, trying to rid himself of the anger boiling inside of him, “I'm sorry, Biff. You know I just worry about you. You've gotten yourself into some fucked up situations in the past and I just want what's best for you. I want you happy and safe.”
She stood from her seat and made her way over to him, pulling him into a standing position and into a hug, “I'm fine, Biff. He really makes me happy so far and I'm safe. I really think he'd protect me at all costs,” She whispered quietly so that Aaron was the only one who could hear her.
“I love you, Biff,” Aaron whispered back, “I'll kill him if anything happens to you, but if you think he's the one to make you happy, then I support that. Just know I'm worried.”
“You don't need to be,” She pulled away to look into Aaron's eyes. He nodded once and they returned to their respective seats. Justin couldn't help but feel the jealousy in the pit of his stomach at their exchange. He immediately latched onto her hand as soon as she'd returned to the seat next to him.
“Ya know,” Courtney began with a smirk, “I remember when you first developed a liking to him.”
Krystal's face flushed a crimson color and she covered her eyes, smiling, “Can we please not ever speak of that again?”
“No,” Justin laughed, “I wanna hear about this.”
“We used to give her so much shit because you're so much younger,” Courtney continued, “But she would always tell me how gorgeous she thought you were and how you were the epitome of perfection.”
“Awww,” Justin chuckled, pulling Krystal to him and kissing the top of her head, “That's so cute.”
“OMG,” Krystal buried her head in Justin's shoulder, “Can we please talk about something else?”
“Sorry, K,” Courtney laughed, “It's just surreal that we're all sitting here right now.”
“I really wish I would've met her sooner,” Justin spoke, reaching towards Krystal, as she had pulled away, and brushing her hair out of her face, “When I first saw her last week, our eyes met and I was immediately drawn to her. She's already become a really important part of my life and it's only been a week.”
“Y'all really are cute together,” Courtney smiled, seeing the happiness in both of their eyes, “Other than Taylor Hanson, you're the only other white guy she's had a thing for since I've known her.”
“Taylor Hanson, huh?” Justin kept the smirk on his face, “Would you trade me in for him if you had the chance?”
“Of course not,” She swatted his arm playfully, “You know that I only have eyes for you, Babe.”
“Good,” His voice was just above a whisper, “Cause I don't wanna have to fight him off.” Their food arrived a moment later and they carried on general conversation with each other as they ate. Once they'd finished, Justin picked up the check and they said their goodbyes as they headed back to their cars. Justin informed them that he needed to stop at his house before they went back to Krystal's, so they wouldn't be arriving at the same time.
“I'm really glad we told them, Babe,” Krystal sighed as they headed towards his house.
“Me too. They took it better than I thought they would,” Justin stated, reaching for her hand.
“Are you staying the night?” She wondered, studying his profile as he drove.
“Yeah, of course,” He glanced at her and then back to the road, “Unless you don't want me to.”
“No. I want you to,” She smirked, “I was just wondering cause I wanna do naughty things to you tonight.”
He wiggled his eyebrows, immediately feeling himself get aroused, “Like what kinda naughty things?”
“Like I wanna taste you,” She leaned closer to him so that her breath tickled his ear as she whispered, “And feel you inside of me over and over again.”
“Mmm, Baby,” He breathed, “You're making my dick hard,” He let go of her hand and found her thigh, his hand squeezing it gently and rubbing his hand all over it.
“Oh yeah?” She smiled slyly as she moved her hand to his stomach, slipping it under his shirt as she ran her nails around his abs, tickling the skin. His took in a sharp breath as she moved below his navel.
“If you keep touching me like that,” He spoke, a husky tone entering his voice, “We might not make it back to your house tonight.” He pulled up at his house and punched the code in for the gate, immediately driving in and parking in front.
“Would you like me to stop?” She teased as he put the car in park. Her only response was a low growl as he hopped out of the car and ran around to her side. He opened the door for her and helped her out, immediately throwing her over his shoulder.
“Put me down!” She squirmed, “You're gonna break your back!” He just chuckled and entered the house, immediately heading up the stairs, her still on his shoulder. Once he reached his bedroom, he put her down on the bed.
“You're not as heavy as you think you are,” He cocked a sexy eyebrow at her and whipped his shirt over his head before moving to undo his belt. He pushed his pants and boxers to the floor, stepping out of his shoes on the way. Once he was completely naked, he took a step towards her and found the hem of her shirt, removing it and tossing it to the growing pile of clothes on the floor. He pulled her into a standing position, slipping his fingers into her waistband and pushing her pants and underwear off of her hips. She stepped out of her pants, discarding her flip-flops in the same motion as he unlatched her bra, letting it fall to the floor. He motioned for her to lay down on the bed, her head on the pillows and she followed his command. He climbed on top of her, kneeling between her legs as he stared down at her with a smirk. He just stared at her for a moment, biting his lip.
“What? Why are you staring at me?” She asked, growing a little uncomfortable under his intense gaze.
“I was just thinking how fucking beautiful you are,” He whispered, reaching his right hand up to caress her cheek, “I want you so badly. I don't think I've ever wanted anyone as much as I want you.” He allowed himself to fall in between her legs, “Sometimes, I can barely stand not being inside you,” He whispered, leaning down to place a gentle kiss on her lips, “Sometimes I get this feeling that if I can't be inside you right then, I'm gonna explode.” He slid himself inside of her slowly, taking in the feeling of each inch of him that entered.
“You can be inside me any time you wanna, Baby,” She breathed as he pushed himself as far inside of her as he could. She squeezed herself around him, causing a moan to escape his lips.
“Oh my gawd, Baby,” He breathed as she pulsated her squeezes on his dick, “I've never...Oh, gawd,” his head fell to her neck as he continued to push himself as far inside of her as possible while she squeezed him, “How do you, Uh, fuck,” he couldn't find the breath he needed to speak as moans continued to escape his lips.
“You like that, Daddy?” She asked, a seductive tone to her voice as she smirked at the fact that she was pleasing him. He let out a groan when she called him that.
“Gawd, yes,” He moaned, attempting to gather himself, “If you don't stop though, I'm gonna cum and I wanna make you cum.” He pulled away slightly to look down into her eyes and kiss her lips passionately. He pulled out of her after a moment, slowly, as she still had herself squeezed around him. He paused once he was completely out of her, just taking a moment to collect himself.
“Daddy,” She pouted, meeting his gaze, “I want you inside me.”
Without another word, he slammed himself inside of her, his lips grasping hers as he sucked hard on her bottom lip, “You drive me fucking crazy,” He moaned as he found a rhythm, griding his hips into her. Her hips came up off the bed to meet his thrusts and push him deeper inside of her as her hands moved to his backside, guiding his rhythm the way she loved it most. Her moans grew louder, causing him to nearly lose it as he stared down into her eyes, “Cum for Daddy, Princess,” He breathed, not dropping her gaze, “I wanna feel you cum while I'm inside of you.” After a moment, he felt her walls start to tighten around him again and her moans grew urgent, signifying to him that she was close. He grinded his hips into her a little harder and felt her start to go over the edge as he let himself pour into her. Both of them shaking and out of breath due to the intensity of their orgasms. He reached up caressing the hair out of her face with both of his hands as he found her lips, making love to them slowly while they caught their breaths.
“Wow,” She whispered after a moment.
“What?” He asked with a smirk.
“I can honestly say that was the best sex I've ever had,” She chuckled.
“It just keeps getting better,” He let out a small laugh before getting serious again, “I never wanna be inside anyone else, Baby,” He held her gaze, “I am falling so in love with you. Tell me you'll never let anybody else be inside you. Tell me you're mine forever.”
“I never want anyone else inside me, my love,” She reached up, brushing the sweaty hair out of his face.
“You're my kind of perfect,” He whispered, a smile finding it's way across his face, “Tell me you'll marry me someday.”
She let out a laugh, “You're crazy.”
“Nuh uh,” He shook his head, placing a light kiss on her lips, “I just know you're the one I wanna spend my life with.”
“You may not feel that way after a few months of us knowing each other,” She smirked.
“Impossible,” He kissed her chin, “I've never fallen this fast for anyone in my life and I just know that even in 20 years, I'm still gonna want you.”
“We'll talk about that when you've known me more than 20 DAYS,” She chuckled and leaned up to kiss him.
“Let's go swimming,” He suggested excitedly.
“What? No. I don't have a suit and it'll be cold,” She cocked an eyebrow at him.
“No it won't, it's heated. And you don't need a suit,” He licked his lips, “C'mon, Baby. Please?”
“Augh. Fine,” She sighed. He placed gently kisses all over her face and neck, causing her to giggle.
“C'mon,” He stopped after a moment and got off of her, helping her up, “I'll grab some towels.” He stood and went into the hall closet, grabbing 2 pool towels as she used the hair ties she kept on her wrist to put her hair in a messy bun on top of her head. She then followed him down the stairs and out the back door to his infinity pool. She jumped in quickly when she realized the night air was a little brisk on her naked body and he followed after turning on the lights.
“It's beautiful from here,” She spoke, going to the far end of the pool and peeking down at the city lights.
“You're beautiful,” He stated, making his way behind her and checking out her body as the underwater light shined on it. He wrapped his arms around her from behind and leaned down to kiss her shoulder.
She turned in his arms and leaned back against the pool, “You're beautiful.” She responded with a smile. He leaned forward, closing the space between them as he met her lips in a sensual kiss, his arms immediately going to her hips and lifting her as she wrapped her legs around his waist and her arms around his neck.
He stared into her eyes for a moment before he started singing.
“I don't work hard when it's easy
I put in work when it's hard
Girl I never believed in,
Love until I had yours
This is more than a season
And I'm not just sprung
I'm not afraid to tell ya
That you're the one
I'm the one you wake up thinking about
The one I can run to when I'm feeling down
Life is all good when you're around
Girl nobody from the past is
Beating you right now
'Cause I'll take you home to mama
I'll let you meet my friends
'Cause you don't come with drama
So I want you til' the world ends
You're way more than worth it
And I don't feel like I deserve it
You got the pieces
You're my kind of perfect...”
She squealed and pulled him into a hug, “You're so fucking perfect,” She breathed, “Sorry, but totally having a fan-girl moment right now.”
He let out a laugh as she pulled back to look into his eyes, “That song describes you perfectly. It never really had much meaning until I met you.”
“You're literally the sweetest man ever,” She ran her fingers through the back of his hair, “That just made me fall a little more in love with you.”
He smiled, “So, if I sing to you all the time you'll be madly in love with me in no time then, right?”
She let out a laugh, “Well, I dunno about all that, but you're on the fast track to getting there.”
“Good,” He whispered, leaning his forehead against hers, “That's exactly what I want.”
“Do you think we're moving too fast, Jay?” She wondered quietly.
“No,” He answered, opening his eyes and staring into hers, “Maybe it's too soon for some people, but we've been spending pretty much every moment together since we met. I can't help what I'm feeling for you. I can't help that I wanna spend all my time with you.”
“I can't help it either,” She bit her lip and stared into his eyes.
“Then fuck society's rules,” He spoke, “We're all that matters. We're both adults. There's nobody to stop us from being together or feeling like this.”
“Yeah, only the world,” She joked, rolling her eyes.
“I don't care about the world, Baby,” He let a small smile grace his lips, “I only care about you and this and us.”
“Augh,” She hugged his neck, “Stop making me love you.”
He chuckled as she pulled away and placed her hands on his pecs, “I can't help it. Besides, you're making ME love YOU, so we're even.”
“Spending time with you is quickly becoming my favorite thing,” She admitted.
“Me too,” He whispered, “Thank you for being here for me today and pretty much since we met. I really don't think anyone other than you could've helped me and healed me so quickly and you did it without even realizing it. I mean, it's gonna take me awhile to get over losing James, but my head doesn't feel so fucked up anymore.”
“Anytime, Baby,” She brushed his hair out of his face, “That's what I'm here for. Always.”
“So,” He spoke after a moment, “Here we are. Your perfect self is naked in this pool with me. We're holding each other, but I don't feel like it's close enough,” He paused to lick his lips.
“It's not close enough, is it?” She smirked, knowing where he was going with this, “I wonder what could possibly allow us to be closer.”
“This,” He whispered, reaching down between them and sliding his hardness into her, pulling her hips down on him and returning his arm to her waist, holding her in place.
“Is this close enough?” She breathed, tightening her legs around him and biting her lip as she stared down into his eyes.
“It's better,” He whispered, “But I don't know if I'll ever be able to be close enough to you, Baby.”
“I love you being inside me,” She said softly.
“Me too,” He swallowed hard, not being able to drop her gaze, “I-I love you.”
She stared into his eyes for a moment, studying them, but she couldn't find any trace of lies in his gaze, “Are you sure?” She asked in a whisper.
“Yes,” He answered without hesitation, “You're the most amazing person I've ever met. You're the first thing on my mind in the morning and the last thing on my mind at night. Even the times in between, I can't stop thinking about you. I've never felt this way before and I don't want it to stop,” She didn't speak for a moment, making him nervous about his confession, “You don't have to say it back,” He finally spoke, “I-I'm just telling you how I feel.”
She could see his heart drop in his eyes and she reached up to caress his cheek, “No, Jay. It's not like that. I love you too. I just feel like it's too soon. We're both grown adults and we've known each other a week. I don't want either of us mistaking lust or obsession with love.”
“I don't want that either,” He agreed, “But I know what I feel and I can't even imagine how much more intense it's gonna be in the future. If I love you like this after a week? It's only gonna get better and more intense from here on out. I would really like to know how you're feeling though, even if it's not as intense as what I'm feeling right now.”
“I,” She paused and took a deep breath, holding his gaze before speaking again, “I love you. I want you. I want this. I want us. You're one of the most important things in my life and I don't ever want this to end. You've quickly become the person responsible for the smile on my face. When you're hurting, it hurts me inside in a way that I shouldn't be feeling after a week, but I can't help it. I wanna fix you and I wanna push you to exceed the potential I see in you. I wanna make you happy and I wanna be the reason for your smile. I want you safe. I want you with me all the time. I want a future with you. I want babies with you some day and I wanna follow you around the world, being the person whose arms you run to after a show or after a long, tiring day and find comfort in. Does that tell you anything?”
“You're perfect,” He whispered as tears glistened in his eyes. He reached up to caress her cheek, “I want all of that too, Baby. I wanna make you the happiest you've ever been and I wanna give you the world. I want to be the one to make life perfect for you.”
“I don't need the world, Jay,” She whispered, “I just need you.”
He smiled as a single tear slid down his cheek. He'd never had anyone in his life tell him these things before and if he'd heard them, he knew no one had ever meant them until this moment, “You've got me, Princess. You'll always have me. No matter what.”
