RECAP: "Dru, will you let me love you until the day, god forbid, you stop putting up with me." I said pushing a strand out of her face.
"No...but I will be your girlfriend." She said kissing the tip of my nose.
It had been a long day, I couldn’t wait to get to the studio and see Druid. We’ve only been dating for 2 weeks and I’m already whipped. School was finished, the bell had rang and I was halfway down the hallway, when I saw her. When our eyes met, she broke out in smile. My heart pounded in my chest. When I reached her, I didn’t say anything. Instead, I hooked my arm around her waist and planted a kiss on her cheek. She wrapped her arms around me and returned the embrace. I felt her take a deep breath when she held me.
I pulled away but kept my hand on her waist. “How are you?”
“Sleepy, but I promised to spend the day with you.”
Her hand fit so perfectly in mine, as we walked to the parking lot. "Hey I don't see your maserati."
I was surprised when she threw the keys at me. "I brought my truck today. Y’know how to drive a stick shift?” She asked standing by her Cadillac truck, breaking away from my hand.
“Your seriously gonna let me drive this monster car?” I said stunned getting in the driver seat
“Of course, I trust you. Now put the car in drive. ” She said rubbing small circles on my thigh. It calmed my nerves, immensely.
“Ease up on the throttle, easy...easy. See, your doing fine.” She smiled looking up at me.
“So where are we going?” I asked turning out of the parking lot.
"I guess we could go to my place, just don't freak out." She swiped her nose again, I've noticed she does that all the time.
I was confused by what she meant by that. Though I followed her directions into some uppity neighborhood called Anza Vista. These houses had to cost millions of dollars, it was ridiculous. We pulled into a semi circle driveway in the middle was this beautiful stone archway. The house was at least 3 stories high, with Edwardian style paneling and was painted an array of blues. Most likely 6 bedroom 4 bathroom, pool, basement and home office.
My mouth dropped. "Old money or new money?."
"New. I do alright for myself, let's just go inside."
Her whole freaking playing room was as big as my entire apartment. Yes, she had a room just for playing her cello. It was a grand white oak base with a red neck, it was beautiful. Then we entered her Tuscan inspired kitchen, to a walkway which led to the living room. It was definitely her style, dark but light. I kinda liked it, maybe I could ask her to redo my place.
When I looked at him, his eyes were on me. He was staring at me. I didn’t look away. Instead, I held his gaze and studied his face. His hazel eyes were my favorite things to look at. His chiseled jaw and prominent cheekbones made me melt. He was a guy I never thought I had a chance with. He was totally out of my league. I’m not sure what I did to get him to notice me, but I’m glad I did.
“You should tell Consuela you’re staying here for a little while.” I whispered.
His breathing quickened “Why?”
“I want to watch a movie with you.” I added
“Fine by me, I just hope the kids behave themselves.” He replied before texting her
“Let’s go in my room.” I said taking him by the hand, guiding him to my bedroom.
Xavier's Point of View
It contained dark cherry wood furniture and a large bed with a black silk comforter and dark blue sheets. Black curtains covered the windows. She reached into one of her dressers and grabbed a pair of baggy sweatpants, and began to strip. She threw her shirt on the lamp, kicked off her pants, exposing her black lace thong and bra. I immediately felt this strong desire to touch her. She turned to me and watched me stare at her body.
“If were gonna be together, you should get used to my body. I want you to memorize every tattoo.”
The centerpiece on her back was gorgeous. She had a cello tree on her thigh, and an alchemy symbol on her shoulder. “Come here.” I said as she walked towards me I could literally feel my bulge scraping against my jeans. The fastest erection I've ever had. I pulled back the covers, and wrapped my arms around her, she handed me the remote.
"What movie do you wanna watch?" I asked
"I don't care, just not a chick flick or a scary movie." Druid stated pulling a blanket over her
'A scary movie sounds perfect' I clicked on Wrong Turn 6. When the title rolled up on the screen, I got a hard punch in the chest. "You asshole." A smirk pulled at my lips and I pulled Druid closer. "If you get scared, you could always come sit in my lap." She just rolled her eyes.
When the first couple entered the movie a tire slasher rolled out into the road and sliced every tire on the white porsche. When the couple got out to check the damage a shadow appeared out of the forest and cut off the head of the man with a machete, and the woman ran the other direction screaming for help. She tried to dial the 991 on her phone, but her hands were shaking tremendously. When she finally got a hold of the operator the man who killed her husband was standing above her.
"Ahhh!" Druid screamed cuddling into my chest. "I hate you." her voice muffled in my sweatshirt and I started laughing.
"It's not that bad, love." I said turning her chin to the screen. By the middle of the movie she was sitting in my lap, with the blanket on top of our heads. She was literally shaking at the sound of the creepy music. So I turned it off early, and started rubbing soothing circles into her back, listening to the sound of her breathing.
"I'm sorry I shouldn't have done that. I didn't think you get that worked up over it." I said ashamed
She lifted her head up and kissed the tip of my nose. "You're really sweet, X. Even though I was only trying to get you to turn it off." She smirked
"You little liar." I said and I began tickling her sides She was fidgeting on the bed trying to get me off to no avail. "Ss-topp... It...I...can't...breathe." Druid laughed trying to kick me
"Alright, I'll stop... on one condition." I said pinning her arms behind her head
"What?" She asked blowing a piece of her black curls out of her face
"Kiss me." I stated looking down at her lips
