226. Owen Grady 49

~“It’s not a big deal, Y/n.” She says, watching you stare at yourself in the mirror. “You wore a bikini to the water park last year!”
You turn to your side, running your finger over the long dark scar that reaches from the middle of your back to your stomach. Biting your lip, you turn away from the mirror and grab a sheer swim shirt out of your top drawer.
“That’s different” You finally reply. “I didn’t know anyone at the water park; no one there was going to stop me and ask about it.”
She sighs loudly as she watches you pull the tight shirt over your chest. “Fine, I can’t tell you what to do with your body.” She gives you a frown and continues, “But you shouldn’t be embarrassed about it. Ariana’s kidneys were failing; it’s just a reminder that you saved her life.”
You know she’s right. You don’t want to be embarrassed about it, but you also don’t want to have to explain it to everyone who sees you.
“Let’s get going,” You say, pulling your jean shorts up over the bikini bottoms. “The party is supposed to start in 20 minutes.”
As your roommate Anna drives you through the island, you can’t help thinking about the party. Owen Grady was going to be there and, frankly, it’s the only reason you agreed to go. A party down by the lake isn’t exactly your idea of fun, but you will take any excuse to hang out with him. You frown when you realize the real motive behind hiding your scar is because you don’t want Owen to see it and think it’s ugly.
When you get to the lake, you’re shocked to see how many people are actually there. There’s a table full of drinks against the back wall of the rackety old storage shack and a huge bonfire down closer to the water. You take a seat beside Anna on a log and reach your hands out to the fire, relishing in the warmth it brings.
“Careful now, you’re not a marshmallow. We don’t want those dainty little hands to get burnt.” You smile up at Owen who comes to take a seat beside you. Your heart flutters just by being in his presence and you’re glad you’re friends with him. You might not get to kiss him and fall asleep next to him, but at least you get to be around him and joke like this.
“I’m not that dainty. I fought off a dinosaur with my bare hands last week, I’ll have you know,” You say, giving him a smirk and he lets out a loud laugh.
“You shoved away a baby triceratops that bit your ankle. Working at the petting zoo isn’t exactly a dangerous occupation.” He gives you a smile and looks towards your hands, still reaching towards the fire. His face scrunches up in concern and he reaches out, pulling your arms back.
“Okay, but you’re seriously close to the flames.” You smile and shake your head.
“Well then, Mr. Alpha, if you really want to look out for me, why don’t you go get me a drink?”
“One margarita coming right up for the lady.” He gives you a wink, knowing you don’t drink alcohol and stands up to walk towards the drinks table. When he leaves, Anna turns towards you.
“Girl, when is all this flirting going to come to something? I need to know what he’s like in bed!” She grabs your arm and exaggerates her words, sounding extremely desperate.
“Shut up,” You give her a smile and nudge her off your shoulder. “You know we’re just playing around.”
She shakes her head at you. “Maybe you are,” She says, glancing up at an approaching Owen. “But I don’t think he is.” She gives you a wink before standing up and heading towards the water as Owen sits back down next to you. He opens the beer in his hand as he passes you a soda.
“What was that about?” He says nodding to Anna before taking a swig. You shrug your shoulders in response.
“Oh, she was just asking me if I wanted to go for a swim.” You lie easily with a smile. Surely Owen doesn’t mean anything more than just teasing with his flirting. It’s always been like that with you two, ever since you met. You know you’re crazy about him, but you never really stopped to think if he actually might like you. You stare off towards the water thinking about it when Owen breaks you out of your thoughts.
“Well do you?”
You look at him confused with wide eyes, not sure what he’s talking about.
“Do I what?” You ask blankly.
He laughs and shakes his head, knowing that you zoned out for a second. “Do you wanna go for a swim?” He stands up and starts to unbutton his shirt and you try not to bite your lip as you watch. You direct your eyes towards his and away from his abs when he looks down at you.
“Um, I think I’m going to sit it out. I don’t really feel like it.” He smirks down at you and you know he’s not going to take no for an answer. However, you don’t give in right away, hoping he will try to convince you.
He doesn’t disappoint when he shrugs and turns around before turning back and throwing you over his shoulder.
“Owen!” You shout, laughing. “Put me down!” You pound on his back and feel a blush start to creep up on your face when you realize how close his hand is to your ass.
You try not to let it affect you but he laughs,“Do you want to take off your dry clothes and get in, or do you want me to throw you in like this?” You can hear the teasing note in his voice, but you know he really would do it. You let out a sigh of defeat and tell him to put you down.
You pull down your shorts, feeling extremely nervous as he doesn’t avert his eyes. Sure, you’re wearing a bathing suit underneath, but does he have to stare at you like that? You give him a smile and head towards the water, but he grabs your arm.
“You’re going in in that?” He asks, looking amused. You swallow the lump in your throat and nod.
“Yeah, got a problem with that?” You try to make it a joke, but he hears the slight anxiety in your voice and his face becomes concerned.
“What’s going on?” He asks, suddenly serious. You look away from his intense eyes and don’t understand why he has to see everything.
“It’s nothing Owen; I just don’t wanna go swimming in such a skimpy bathing suit.” You give him a reassuring smile but he shakes his head.
“You know you’re a terrible liar, Y/n. I let you off the hook about what Anna said, but there’s something you’re not telling me.”
Stupid Owen with his stupid sensitive side and stupid amazing perception always caring about his stupid friends. You know he’s not going to let it go, so you decide to tell him as nonchalantly as possible, hoping he won’t make a big deal out of it.
“I just have a scar that I don’t exactly like showing off, okay?” You raise your eyebrows at him and look towards the water, “Can we go now?” You ask with a forced smile.
“A scar from what?” He asks plainly and you sigh. Of course it wouldn’t be that easy.
“When I was 14 my sister’s kidneys were failing and she needed a transplant.” You shrug your shoulders as if it’s no big deal. “She got a kidney, and I got a nasty scar.” You look at the ground as you tell him, feeling extremely self-conscious and you’re glad to notice that everyone is either far out in the water or sitting by the bonfire. You don’t exactly want a crowd for this confession.
“Well, that doesn’t sound like something to be ashamed of; I’d be pretty proud of it actually.” Of course he is on Anna’s side, because you know she was right. He looks down at you with his eyebrows raised. “Can I see it?”
You roll your eyes, knowing that once someone hears about it, they won’t let you go without getting a peek. You look away as you reach across your body with your right arm and pull your shirt up, showing him the scar. He reaches out a hand to touch it which you’re used to, but people normally ask first. You shiver when his fingers touch your skin and pretend that it’s from the cold air and not the fact that he seems to think he can just touch you wherever he wants without asking. He runs his fingertips across it like you did earlier in the night and he gets a small smile on his face.
“That’s definitely not something to hide.” You look away from his eyes, telling yourself not to get emotional. He just saw your biggest physical flaw, the one that you hate, and acted like it’s no big deal. It’s one thing to hear it from Anna, but another thing to hear it from him. “It actually adds to your beauty; one more thing to make you so unique.”
You look to see his huge grin and realize his hand is still on your waist. You let go of your shirt, letting the fabric fall, but he doesn’t move his hand; he rubs his thumb gently over the scar as he pulls you towards him.
“You are beautiful, you know that?” His eyes are shining as he looks down at you and you can’t help sucking in your lower lip to wet it with your tongue. His eyes follow the movement and he leans in, tilting his head slightly before capturing your lips with his.
The kiss is soft and slow at first, as you relish in the sensation of finally kissing him, but after a moment, you let his tongue slip past your lips and he tastes even better than you imagined. He keeps one hand at your hip and moves the other to the back of your head, tangling his fingers in your hair. You pull away for a quick breath before delving back into the warmth of his mouth, tongues moving together when you hear a voice behind you. You pull away from him at the sound and glare at Anna as she looks to the guy on her left.
“See?” She says, glancing your way, “I win. You owe me twenty bucks.”
She gives you a sly smile as they walk away and you feel the heat rising in your cheeks before looking up at Owen. He licks his lips as he stares down at you, seemingly unperturbed by the sudden distraction.
“I’ve wanted to do that for a while.” He says, giving you a smirk and this gets a laugh out of you.
You lean away, feeling too close for just conversing, “Well it sure took you long enough.” You poke your tongue out at him teasingly and he licks his lips again, sending a shiver down your spine.
“I do believe you promised me a swim,” He says, getting a wicked glint in his eyes and you try to put your hands up to stop him, but he throws you over his shoulder once more and runs towards the dock. You scream for him not to throw you and are slightly shocked when he actually does stop, right at the end of the dock.
“You really want me to put you down?” He asks, and you tell him yes, although you already hear the smirk in his voice. “Too bad.” He says, slapping your ass before tossing you into the water. He follows after you and pulls you to him as he reaches the surface, giving you a wet kiss.
“Don’t hide that scar anymore.” He says, smiling as he looks into your eyes. “It’s beautiful.”
