He looked like he's aroused right?Jacqueline said to always look calm, smile a little, and maintain eye contact.
Oh my, I'm half-naked in front of my honey bun bun.
Is he staring at my love handle?Wait...is it still a love handle when there's no love between us?
Really? Ella, just call it a muffin top already, and focus on the hot author!
My mind was calculating my moves, I was trying to keep eye contact, miserably failed when he pulled me to his lap and put his glasses onto the side table.
Oh, my gawddddd...
I looked at him, took his hand, and laid back beside him."I'm sorry, I think I'm a bit nervous.""I know, that's why I'm taking it slow. I thought you need it. But,"Maybe it was the virgin thing, maybe he's one of those guys who's turned off by it.Or maybe he actually likes you, Ella?"...you like me?""I do, and honestly, I have issues too, nervous also about us," Brice put his hand on my face and looked at me intensely, he lowered himself down and put his other hand on my waist.Issues? nervous about us?Did he
I opened my eyes looking at my surroundings, I stretched my arms, curled my toes, and snuggled back into the comfort of my fluffy pillows.But then I remembered about last night, I sit up and look at my little corner shrine of Brice Durant, then I recollect what had happened to me before.Oh, fuck!Tell me it's not a dream.Tell me it's not a dream.Tell me it's not a dream.I hurried myself to the bathroom and see the little scrapes from his beard, the redness caused by his hot sexy kisses and I cracked the biggest morning smile I can manage.It was too early for smileys and with that knowledge, I decided to pee an
Brice's POVWe were having our intimate dessert when two well-built men came straight to our table."I don't understand, I already told the manager that I don't want us to be disturbed. I'm so sorry about this, Ella.""Oh, no..." she said looking at the men while shaking her head at them.I was pretty impressed by them, I was wearing my darker-shade glasses and wear casual clothes, I surely didn't expect to be noticed."I don't usually get spotted like this, I'll just give them my signature and sends them away."Ella gave me her nervous laugh and was telling me to be quiet which then made
I hated myself for being such a coward when we met my brothers at lunchtime. I did not expect them to recognize Brice behind his subtle disguise, though I don't think they did. I know they've seen my shrine back at my apartment, they mocked me for it but didn't question it further.They somehow think that my current obsession with my honey bun bun was to direct my sadness and guilt from Gwen's death. Some part of it was true, aside from Brice actually is a very good author. But I was afraid of the possibility when they know that I was dating and getting intimate with my honey bun bun at the same time.Those two goons can be very protective, I can still recall what happened back at mom and dads when my cowboy buddies get too close. I have to separate them like they were in some school fight.
I packed up my stuff, wake Gemma up from her sleep and tell her that I'm going to my parents. I explained to her about what happened between Brice and me in brief."I need to disappear, I can't do this to him, Gemma...""Aww...Els, you are hurting yourself too, maybe you can work things out? maybe you should talk to him?""It's happened to his fiance, Gemma...I'm just a girl he fucks, maybe he likes me, but I'm falling for him, I can't do this, maybe I'm being selfish but this is hurting me so much more than I expected. I can't just tell him the truth.""What if he comes here?""Tell him I'm sorry, tell him not to call me, Gemma, he'll be gone in less than two
Brice's POVI was going mad since I woke up to an empty bed that morning. The night before, I had the best sleep thinking I was going to have the greatest two weeks in front of me. But instead, Ella was gone and she was suddenly unreachable.Was it something I said?Did my deceased fiance scare her?I truly thought that she was going to be it, I'm happy when I'm with her. And since she's gone, Clara tried to cheer me up. I tried to drown myself in my work but nothing was showing up.It has been almost a week, and I was functioning on autopilot. I wake up, drink coffee, have breakfast then stare at my PC screen as my fingers stay still, and I couldn't write anything. I tried to
Gemma has been calling me while I have been rejecting her calls, and mom has been scolding me for it."She's worried about you, she said he has been looking for you. Now, I don't know who's thehethat Gemma was talking about. But I don't have to guess that he's the man who broke your heart. Darling, talk to her?"I sighed and finally nodded."Okay, I'll call her tonight.""What? Why? She just arrived." Mom smiled wickedly.I have been ignoring Gemma's call, thinking that I'll explain everything once I get back. But I didn't expect that she decided that she need to hassle me by coming to my parents'.
Gemma decided to give me privacy with Brice by getting back hours after me. I was antsy when I arrived back at our apartment and quickly took a long shower then put on my makeup.More concealer under the eyes, crying every damn night has its downside. I was wearing my jeans and my most comfortable sweatshirt. I was feeling like shit, it was the best look I can pull off for him and I was done lying.It was exactly eight in the evening when the front door buzzed. My hands were sweaty and I could feel the warmness in my eyes, my tears were threatening to fall when I took a deep breath and told myself to get it over with."Come on Ella, the sooner the better," I said to myself as I walked to the door.Nothing can prepar
