Niko and Harry laid in the bed in the pool house kissing and touching each other for a little while after. Harry really enjoyed it, since it wasn’t only the act of sex he was missing out on. It was everything – from cuddling to kissing to exploring, even the after-sex banter. He missed everything. And their little romp brought him back to all the old familiar feelings. He could tell by the way they connected on just about every level that it wasn’t going to take long for his heart and his head to align. A fact he knowingly chose to ignore as her naked body pressed perfectly against his own. He could already distinguish the feelings of adoration coursing through him as he looked at her.
“As much as I would love to have round two with you, right here, right now… I need to go… work… soon,” Niko said, smiling at him as she lazily interlaced his fingers with her own.
“Mmm, round two,” he hummed, his eyes half-lidded.
He let his fingers trail down her arm after she let go of his hand, using his index finger as a guide as it moved across her porcelain skin.
“Round two will have to wait,” she giggled, wiggling away from him.
Harry groaned as she slipped out of his arms, holding on to her until the last possible second. He propped his head up on his hand and watched as she looked for her discarded clothing. She pulled her black lace panties back up her legs and bent down to pick up her shorts.
“Where is my bra… and my shirt?” She asked, pulling up the denim shorts and buttoning them back up.
“Out there,” Harry said, pointing to the doorway with a smirk on his face.
She giggled as she disappeared out of the bedroom. Harry pulled himself out of the bed and grabbed his own shorts, replacing them on his body. He walked to the doorway of the bedroom and leaned against its frame, watching as Niko hooked her bra back on her body and then threw her tank top back over her head. When she turned around, she caught sight of him, letting a smile curl up on her lips. He smirked back at her, enjoying everything about her.
“I’m gonna… go,” she said, pointing back at the main pool house door.
“Thee old love ‘em and leave ‘em, huh?” Harry smirked at her.
“That’s the way it’s gotta be, Mr. Styles,” she said, putting emphasis on his name at the end, reminding him he was her boss. Harry raised his eyebrows at her as she closed the gap between them, leaving a quick kiss on his lips to signify the parting of ways.
“I’ll see you later,” Harry said, slapping her ass as she turned and made her way to the door.
“Naughty!” She smirked back at him before she opened the door, checking if the coast was clear. When it was, she disappeared out of sight, letting the door close behind her.
Harry sighed and turned back into the bedroom. He let his body flop back onto the bed as he ran his hands over his face, blowing out a large breath. They crossed the point of no return. He and Niko were no longer just flirting with each other. They just became lovers and he didn’t know how to process it in his brain. What freaked him out the most was the feelings of infatuation that burrowed their way deep inside of him. Sex was never just sex. Not to someone who a heart and felt feelings. There were always strings attached. Always.
Niko snuck back to her room without running into anyone. She sat on her bed and relived every moment in her head. It was exciting. She never had sex with someone with so much experience – someone who knew what they were doing. High school boys and college boys – that’s all she ever had back in her day. The older man with the sexual maturity – she never knew what she was missing. Harry was a man that knew how to pleasure a woman and he did it well.
That afternoon, Niko took the kids swimming in the pool – something Jackson and Avery loved very much. Harry came outside and sat on one of the lounge chairs watching them. Niko had a two-piece tankini swimsuit on. The swimsuits she wore around the kids were always more modest then the bikini’s Harry always caught her wearing while she laid in the sun during the late mornings.
Every time Niko’s eyes met his from the pool, his whole body tingled. He couldn’t help but stare at her, to just watch her with his children. She was so good with them – a natural with kids. That was even more of a turn on to him. He should have looked for someone like her when he was younger – someone who wanted to have children with him. Instead, he let physical desire and recklessness guide him into Julia’s arms. And there he was, wishing the twenty-two year old nanny could take over motherly duties of her children. They sure as hell got more stimulation and love from Niko than they did from their own mother.
As they were all getting out of the pool, Niko wrapped towels around both of the kids and helped them dry off before she sent them on their way up to their bedrooms to change. She told Avery she’d be up to help her with her clothes in a few minutes and Avery happily ran off after giving Harry a kiss on the cheek. He smiled after his kids and didn’t even noticed when Niko walked up to him.
“You know, it’s incredibly distracting having you undressing me with your eyes, Mr. Styles,” Niko cooed, smirking flirtatiously at him.
“Oh. Well, I guess I really can’t help myself,” he chuckled, looking over at her seductively. His gaze fell to the top of her breasts as he licked his lips.
“You’re doing it again,” she chuckled lightly.
“Like I said…” He smiled up at her.
“Like you said,” she repeated as she walked passed him, trailing her finger across his arm. His arm tingled from her touch as he watched her walk into the house and out of his vision.
“God damn,” he breathed, running his fingers through his hair. He was in deep. That was for sure.
Harry went up to see if Jackson needed help getting changing, but he was already dressed by the time he got there.
“Hey, bud,” Harry said, laying down on his bed watching as Jackson contently played with some Transformer toys.
“Hi, dad,” he said as he made car noises and exploding noises as he played.
“Did you have fun in the pool?” Harry asked, hanging his head over the mattress to watch him.
“Yeah!” Jackson said excitedly, looking over at his dad with a smile on his face.
“Good. Niko’s fun, huh?” Harry smiled back at him.
“She’s so much fun. I like when she threw me into the water,” he said brightly.
“She threw you into the water, huh?” Harry chuckled.
“Yeah! It was so much fun!” He said animatedly.
“Sounds like it,” Harry laughed. He watched Jackson for a few more moments before he pulled himself up from the bed.
“I love you, dude,” he said, bending down to ruffle his wet hair.
“Love you, dad,” Jackson said as Harry made his way out of the bedroom, nearly smacking right into Niko in the process. His hands caught her hips as they steadied themselves.
“Well…” She giggled, looking into his eyes with her hands on his chest.
“Sorry,” he smirked at her as his thumbs rubbed against her hips bones.
“It’s alright,” she told him, her cheeks blushing.
Their embraced lingered longer than it should have. Julia could have very easily walked out of the office and witnessed their undeniable sexual tension. But that would mean she had to actually leave the office, which she was doing less and less as the days went by.
Harry pulled his hands away from her and took a step back.
“Uh… I should… I should go,” he told her awkwardly.
“Yeah. Yeah, sure,” she said, waving her hand through the air, stepping aside.
“I’ll uh… I’ll see you, Niko,” he told her as he stepped around her.
“For sure, Mr. Styles,” she said, continuing on to Jackson’s room.
Harry made his way down the hallway and rounded the corner into the office. Julia was startled by his presence.
“Harry,” she breathed.
“I’m gonna… I think I’m going to head down to LA to see what Louis’s up to. There’s nothing going on around here. The girls have the kids under control. Maybe you could ask one of them to cook dinner tonight?” His speech was fast and garbled. He just really felt like he needed to get out of the house before he exploded.
“Uh, yeah,” Julia said, looking as if she were shell-shocked.
“So uh… yeah. I’ll see you when I get home. It might be late,” Harry said, turning back toward the door.
“Harry!” She said and he immediately turned to look at her.
“Yeah?” He asked.
“Are you alright? You seem a little bit flustered,” she said, sounding genuinely concerned.
“Oh, I’m fine. I think I’m just going a little stir crazy. I just need to get out of here for a while,” he told her.
“Okay,” she nodded.
“I’ll see you,” he said with a small wave before he took off out the office door.
He made his way into the bedroom and changed his clothes into something less casual than the shorts and t-shirt he was wearing. Grabbing his wallet and cell phone from the dresser, he left the room and headed downstairs. He could hear Niko’s voice in the kitchen with the kids. She must have been feeding them their afternoon snack. He contemplated going in there to say goodbye to them, but he thought better of it – feeling as if he were in Niko’s presence again, he might lose it.
A little while later, he was knocking at Louis’s front door. His sister-in-law, Liz answered with a smile.
“Hey, Lizzy. Is your husband home?” He asked her as he gave her a hug.
“He’s down in the studio, as per usual,” she said, rolling her eyes with a smile.
The thing about Louis was that he was just about as dedicated to his work as Julia was to hers. But the difference between them was that Louis knew when to quit and he knew that neglecting his family was completely out of the question. He knew that family was all anyone had in the end.
Harry headed straight down to the home studio that he had a hand in helping create a few years back. Louis was sitting at the sound board with a guitar in his hand, strumming it idly.
“Hey, man,” Harry interrupted him.
“Harry, hey,” Louis smiled back at him. Harry took the seat next to him and put his elbows on his knees, running his hands over his face.
“What’s going on?” Louis asked in the tone where Harry was almost certain he already knew what was going on. Harry looked up at him through his eyelashes, giving him a look of guilt.
“You didn’t,” he breathed.
“I did,” Harry told him.
Louis sighed as he pulled the guitar from his lap and set it upright against the wall.
“You had sex with her, Harry?” Louis asked. He nodded, sheepishly.
“Dude,” Louis breathed.
“I couldn’t help it,” he said, throwing his hands up.
“You couldn’t help it? Like, what? You tripped and ended up inside of her?” Louis scoffed with a laugh.
“Something like that,” Harry smirked at him.
“What are you going to do about Julia?” Louis asked.
“I don’t know. That’s why I’m here. I couldn’t be in the same house as both of them. I was freaking out about it,” Harry told him.
“That’s your guilty conscience,” Louis pointed out.
“I don’t regret it,” Harry told him honestly.
“Harry…” Louis sighed.
“I’m serious. She’s incredible, dude. Uhh. I just… I can’t get enough of her,” Harry told him.
“Then you need to make a decision. No, you know what you need to do? You need to realize, right now, that Julia is never going to change, man. She’s going to keep walking all over you like she has been for years. You need to do what’s best for you and those kids,” Louis told him sincerely.
“What’s best for the kids?” Harry choked out.
“Don’t get all pissy with me, okay. You need to open your eyes. You need to realize that a divorce is probably going to be easier on them then seeing how lonely their father is. Or god forbid, one day finding out their father has been cheating on their mother. You will end up the bad guy, Harry,” Louis told him.
Louis’ words tore at him. There was a lot he refused to deal with and he knew it. There were so many bitter feelings harboring deep inside of him when it came to Julia. And he knew if he let them out, if he uncaged the beast, there was no way of bottling them back up. He would explode.
Harry let out an aggressive sigh.
“You just really need to make a decision,” Louis said finally.
Harry knew it. It was painfully obvious that he couldn’t just sleep around with the nanny behind his wife’s back. But that realization didn’t get him any closer to actually doing what he needed to do.
Harry spent the rest of the night working on music with Louis. It had been so long since he actually sat down to create music. And doing so with Louis made it that much better. It was almost like old times again.
Niko couldn’t exactly hide her disappointment when she saw that Harry wasn’t around for dinner.
“If you don’t mind my asking, where is Mr. Styles tonight?” She asked Julia.
“Oh, he headed up to LA to spend some time with his friend, Louis,” Julia said as she picked through her meal. Niko’s heart sank. Was he going to be gone for a whole week again?
“Oh, will he be gone long?” She asked as nonchalantly as possible, trying to make it seem like she was just carrying on the conversation.
“He should be back late tonight. Why?” Julia asked, giving her an odd look.
“Oh, he just… he never wrote down the directions to the park where Jackson plays soccer,” Niko said, making up an excuse.
“Oh. He should be back, honey. Don’t worry. We’ll get them to you, I promise,” she chuckled. Niko nodded and went back to her own meal.
Harry still wasn’t back by the time she headed to bed. It was sort of disappointing not being able to see him, but whatever. She fell asleep easily from being so worn out. She an energetic round of sex in the morning and a day of swimming in the sun all afternoon. She was beat.
It was pretty late as Harry drove back to the house. He was certain everyone was in bed, fast asleep. That knowledge sent a shiver of excitement through him. He could easily sneak into Niko’s room instead of going up to bed. Julia would just think he was still at Louis’s if she were to wake up.
Oh god. He thought of nothing else as I pulled into the driveway and quietly made my way up the front walk. He quickly took a beeline to the side of the house and made his way to the pool house and grabbed some of the condoms he had hidden in there. If he and Niko were really going to do this, they would need a supply in her room as well.
It was incredibly dark as Harry crept down the hallway to Niko’s room. He prayed to God that Mary wouldn’t suddenly bustle out of her room, catching him in the act. When he reached Niko’s door, he quietly knocked, but got nothing in response. He slowly turned the handle and pushed the door open, finding the room dark. But the moon was so bright that its soft glow through the window illuminated Niko’s sleeping figure in the bed. She was incredible. Harry could have just sat there on the edge of her bed and watched her sleep. But he knew he couldn’t – that he needed to go up to bed at some point.
Harry placed his hand on Niko’s arm, gingerly shaking her as he whispered her name. When it didn’t work, he tried a steadier shake. Still nothing. He continued to shake her and say her name out loud, which finally awarded him with her stirring.
“Harry…?” He heard her tired voice respond to him.
“Oh my god, you are one of the hardest people to wake up. I’ve been down here for like five minutes,” he chuckled.
“How was LA?” She asked as she sat up, running her fingers through her hair.
“It was fun. Louis wanted to get together,” he shrugged, not wanting to tell her he had a semi-mental breakdown and needed to talk to Louis about them.
She nodded in response, leaning over to turn on the bedside lamp. Her full beauty was brought into view and he smiled because of it.
“Are you up for round two?” He asked her hopefully. A smirk pulled up her lips as she looked at him.
“Is that a yes?” He smiled back at her.
“Yes… but hold on. I’ll be right back,” she said as she quickly got out of bed and dashed out the bedroom door faster than he could wrap his head around it. She dipped into the bathroom and quickly brushed her teeth. She was not about to kiss him with morning breath.
Harry stared at the door for a few moments before crawled up in her bed, leaning against the head board to wait for her. When her door tentatively opened again and she slipped back inside, the excitement consumed him. She was only wearing a skin tight tank top and a pair of tiny shorts. He watched every move she made as she sauntered back to the bed.
“Oh, I figured you’d be waiting for me naked in here,” she smirked playfully at him. Harry laughed, immediately sitting up to pull off his shirt.
“That’s more like it,” she told him as she sat down on the bed.
“Here. Will you hold on to these?” He asked, pulling out the condoms from his back pocket.
“Oh, yeah. Sure,” she said, nodding her head as Harry leaned over to put them in her nightstand drawer.
When he pulled it open, his eyes pleasantly met with none other than a small pink vibrator.
“OH, what is this?” Harry asked, dropping the condoms in the drawer and pulling out the pink sex toy. Niko immediately started giggling as her face turned bright red.
“How often do you use this?” He asked curiously.
“Put it back!” She giggled, trying to grab for it. He clicked it on and his eyes widened in surprise.
“Ooh, this thing has some power,” he laughed.
“Seriously, put it back,” she said, reaching for it again.
“Naughty, naughty girl,” Harry laughed as he put it back in the drawer as requested.
“Shut up,” she said, still looking rather embarrassed.
“Come here,” he said, pulling her on top of him as he laid down on the bed.
Her lips met his and they began kissing pretty heavily. His hands trailed all over the backside of her body. She was incredible, so amazing. He pulled up her tank top and she let him take it off of her as her naked breasts pressed against his bare chest. Wrapping his arms around her tightly, he flipped her onto her back on the bed. He wanted to appreciate every inch of her body and he couldn’t do it with his body pinned down.
Harry ran his hand over her chest and down her stomach before his mouth came down to follow the same trail. His fingertips dug into her hips as they moved their way down, gathering the fabric of both her shorts and panties with them. He pulled them off of her body with a gratifying moan as she came completely into view. She was literally a work of art that needed to be cherished. And he was ready to do just that.
“So sexy,” Harry breathed and she giggled under his stare.
Her hand trailed down her body and it sparked a naughty thought in his mind.
“So do you… do you ever think of me when you… you know?” He smirked at her. Her giggles came out louder and her cheeks once again burned with blush.
“Well, do you?” He persisted.
“Maybe once or twice,” she shrugged, trying to act nonchalant about it. A wide grin formed on his face.
“Oh man, that is so hot,” Harry groaned as his hands moved slowly over her body, unable to keep himself from exploring her.
“First night here—” She smirked up at him.
“You pleasured yourself to me on the first night?” He asked wide-eyed, cutting her off mid-sentence.
He didn’t need to hear anymore to feel the sensations her words sent straight to his groin. If he wasn’t already as hard as a rock her words sure as hell would have done it.
She nodded her head and let out that bashful giggle. Dear fucking god.
“Jesus,” he groaned as he pressed his lips hard against hers. She giggled into his kiss.
“I need you right now before I explode from sheer excitement,” he laughed, pulling up to look into her eyes.
“Here I am,” she said, offering herself up. She had no clue what she was doing to him.
It was less than a minute that it took him to pull off his shorts, roll a condom on and position himself over her body.
“I want to be on top,” she told him and his stomach turned with excitement. Harry smirked at her as they switched position.
“Are you ready for this?” Niko smiled suggestively down at him as her hands pressed palm down on his bare chest.
“So ready,” he confirmed.
When she lowered herself down on top of him, he let out a groan. He watched as she happily bounced her body on top of him, her breast bouncing in the sexiest possible way. He really enjoyed watching her from that vantage point. And he loved being able to reach up and touch her whenever he felt like – which was pretty much the whole time.
When he really felt his body reacting to her, when he knew he could lose it at any time, he grabbed onto her hips and started bucking his own up into her to help out, which caused her to gasp with every thrust. It was probably one of the sexiest things he heard in a long time. Just hearing her reacting to something he was doing to her – oh god damn.
When she grabbed onto the headboard to help steady herself, it only got better. She pulled up and came back down harder and deeper and fuck – he was about to lose it.
“I am—fuck, oh my god,” Harry groaned as he felt the tingling’s of orgasm deep within him.
“Don’t stop. Just… not yet,” she panted heavily, as she began moving faster and faster to try to push herself over the edge.
“Oh, god,” she whimpered and he knew she was close.
When her body gave out, he knew it hit her. He gripped firmly onto her hips and kept the rhythm to get him there as well. Only a few more thrusts and he was busting into the condom.
“Oh, fuck…” Niko moaned pleasingly, collapsing next to Harry on the bed.
“That was torture…” She panted, placing her hand on her forehead.
“Torture? Not the word I would use, but to each his own,” Harry chuckled as his chest heaved, trying to catch his breath.
“It was torture to not be able to scream out,” she giggled, turning her body toward his.
“Oh, god. I know. Maybe we should stick to the pool house rendezvous,” he suggested.
“I kind of like you sneaking down to my room at night. It’s hot,” Niko smirked over at him.
“Yeah?” He smirked wildly at her.
“Yeah,” she said with a confirming nod.
“We’ll have to have both then. And tomorrow… tomorrow Jackson has a soccer game. We can either go sight-seeing again or go somewhere… to be together,” he offered.
She looked to the ceiling as she tapped her chin with her finger looking as if she were really thinking about it.
“Hmm. We’ll see,” she smiled at him finally.
“Okay,” he chuckled, leaning over to give her another quick kiss before he sat up. Unfortunately, he really needed to get up to bed.
“Are you dining and dashing?” Niko asked as she sat up on her elbows, watching him get out of bed.
“It is two in the morning and I’m technically still in LA according to Julia. I should probably go up to bed,” he told her as he re-dressed himself.
“Alright,” she said, smiling at him from her spot on the bed.
Harry took a few moments to really appreciate her from where he was standing. She lay so perfectly naked looking up at him with a small smirk tugging at her lips. Her breasts hung out in the open, her nipples flawlessly erect, making him want to just crawl back up in the bed and worship them once again. He would spend all night worshipping her entire body if he could – if she were really and truly his. But he couldn’t because he wasn’t hers. He was Julia’s and she was asleep upstairs thinking he was in Los Angeles with Louis.
Harry quickly walked over to Niko, leaning down to plant a kiss on her lips.
“Do me a favor and think of me the next time you use that,” he smirked at her as he pointed to the nightstand drawer that housed her vibrator.
“Who else would I think of when you fuck me like that?” She giggled.
“Fair point,” he chuckled, leaning in for one more kiss before he turned and headed for her bedroom door.
“Goodnight, Nikola,” Harry said, smiling at her, giving her a wink as he was leaving.
“Goodnight, Mr. Styles,” she said with a hint of seduction in her tone. Harry chuckled lightly as he shut her door behind him.
He snuck up to the bedroom he shared with his wife and pulled off all his clothes except for his boxer briefs, crawling into bed next to her.
Julia rolled over from the movement of the mattress.
“Where have you been?” She asked, sounding as if she’d just woken her.
“Uh, Louis and I just lost track of time. We were working on some music,” he told her – which was only a half-truth, but at least it was a little true.
“Did you have fun?” She asked, rolling back over away from him.
“I always have fun with Louis,” he told her, letting him body relax into the mattress.
“Good,” she yawned.
Harry lay there in the silence thinking only of Niko and how he wished he was on top of her or under her. It didn’t really matter, so long as they were touching.
He fell asleep as memories of their late night romp replayed in his head.
