We've talked about the weather, the app, then venture to favorite food and drinks, up until it was getting too personal for a first date. Though he seemed to act casually about everything."Tell me about yourself?""Uh..."He chuckled as I was crumbling on the inside while listening to his deep sexy laugh. I don't know what I did in my previous life to deserve to meet the handsome smart man in front of me."Well, I'm a painter...eh, well I try to be.""Yeah? I've always wanted someone to do a portrait of me.""You're really fond of yourself?"He laughed and my heart almost skipped a beat when he gets a clean napkin and gives me his pen."Please?" he plea adorably, making me want to do things to him.Breathe Ella..."Not my first choice of media, it'll look a bit cartoonish but let's try it out."I took his pen and started sketching on the napkin, I don't really have to look at him to draw his facial features, but I was not going to pass the chance of watching him actually pose for me."So, tell me what do you do?" I asked pretending to be oblivious to his very successful writing career."It's refreshing to meet someone who doesn't recognize me.""So you're famous?" I asked while I sketched his manly jaw slowly, very very slowly. I was sketching at a snail speed not wanting to end my drawing session. But I could only delay very little time as I was drawing on a napkin."My agent kept on reminding me that, I write fiction."He was being modest, I like him.I was sketching his hair, finishing the last couple of details when he scoots inches to my side and looked at my drawing. I could see that Gemma was still lurking from the bar but already started talking to a guy."Wow, you're very good at this."You should've seen what I've done at home."Thanks, you pose well."He laughed, put his hand on mine and leaned in close to me then whispered in my ear."Let's dance.""I don't dance...""Ah, me too...it's just that I think you're cute and I want to be closer to you." His hand rubbed my back and his hot breath fanned my neck as he said his words huskily.I'm freaking cute!Breathe, Ella...His back was to Gemma when she looked at me giving me a thumbs up, I could see that she was all too excited for me while I was a nervous wreck."Okay..." I said meekly when he helped me up and ushered me to the dance floor."See, not that bad," he said as he moves expertly to the music. His hand was to my waist and his blue eyes looked deeply into me."It's so strange, I feel like I've known you from somewhere."He took my hands to his chest then up to his shoulder, his body was flat to mine. His hard chest and shoulder were firm when I felt them against my hands. He smiled, not knowing what he did to my insides."Yeah?" that was all I could say until he holds my body to his while his manly cologne invaded my senses."Mm-hmm... so, you still want to meet me after tonight?""Yeah,""Good, so tomorrow. Lunchtime. Can I pick you up?""Sure."He laughed telling me that I didn't sound too convincing, but then I look into his eyes and pull him down and put my lips against his.I didn't know where I dare to do such a thing, but he was not stopping me.I could feel his smile while he caresses my body. I opened my mouth to his demanding one and let him slipped his tongue to deepen our kiss. His hand move to the base of my neck and tilt my head for more of his kisses.The music seemed to fade while he engulfed me to his body, sheltering me from others who dance around us. I was breathless but didn't want to let him go. He moves my body, while still kissing me.Sensually slow."You, are something else, Ella." He whispered while kissing my cheek. His hand was still on my back, and his other one was holding onto my waist."But, I need to get back. I have a date with my laptop," he laughed softly when I froze at his words."Okay." Another choppy answer, but he ushered me back to Gemma who's now talking to another man in a very serious manner."Gemma, this is Brice." I decided to introduce his real name and she smiled brightly at me."Hey Brice, Ella, uh...this is my boss, Larry."She had mentioned about her boss Larry, the demanding yet never in the office boss, who ordered her around as if he owned her day and night."Hey, Gemma, Larry, nice meeting you. I'm very sorry but I need to leave right now. But do remind her tomorrow that she has a lunch date with me." Brice was to my side, his fingers weave through mine politely holding me, yet telling me that he still wanted to be with me. I feel him caressing my hand with his thumb from time to time as he was talking to Gemma.Larry looked bored, while Gemma couldn't stop smiling and she made me want to hide under the bar from the embarrassment alone."I'll see you tomorrow, beautiful." He swiftly kissed my forehead and was gone moments later, and that's when Gemma suffocates me with her hug."Oh, my God! I'm so happy for you, Ella!"I laughed nervously in front of her boss, who refused to look at us and continue with his drinking."Come on, I'm taking you girls home. It's past your bedtime." The man settled his and paid for Gemma's.I didn't know what's going on between them but I decided to ask later and let him ushered us to his car. Gemma was the first to get inside when his driver opens the door for us. She looked furious and I honestly didn't want to get in the middle of their thing.I went straight to my room when we got back into our apartment. I can hear Gemma was still arguing with her boss in the living room.But Brice's text message made me smile instantly.Can I call you? (Brice)Sure. (Ella)"You know there are other words than sure and okay right?""Well, I'm not a walking thesaurus like you."I put my phone on speaker while I change my clothes to my pajamas, then gaze in the mirror. I looked at my boring chubby face with my boring dark brown hair to match. And then smile when I remembered him, calling me beautiful.I don't have the typical modelesque figure body, I have boring size boobs and boring size ass to match."Ella?""Yeah, sorry I was changing, you're on speaker." I rest back to the headboard and hold the phone back to my ear."You shouldn't be stating that to the man you just met."I laughed and told him that he has a filthy mind, which never in a million years I thought I'd say to the man whose face was plastered on the corner of my bedroom wall."I thought you have a date with your laptop?""Nothing came to me, I thought I talk to you and see if my mood will change and speed up my writing."I was liking his flirty side and try my best not to be reminded that he's a famous author, my idol and that I'm his loyal stalker."So, I have a nice time tonight." I feel brave enough telling him so, maybe because I'm hiding in the distance."Me too, I can't wait for tomorrow. Text me your address later and I'll pick you up?""I can meet you at the restaurant, but I won't reject if you want to swing by my place before we go to the restaurant.""I want to..."We talked for two more hours, I can't believe he wanted to talk to me for that long without me paying a yearly subscription.I couldn't erase my smile, I think I even smile in my sleep.
"Ella...don't, I know you're happy but you don't have to drag me into it. I'm taking the day off.""What? this is Sunday. It is your day off." "Yeah, I mean tomorrow, just have fun. I don't feel so good. I want my blankie.""Is it because of Larry?" I tried to wake Gemma and have her join me for coffee but she was still cocooned under her blanket and not wanting to be disturbed. So, I gave up and have a cup of coffee while stalking Brice's Instagram feeds. I was trying to see if he mentioned anything about his mystery date with me last night. I was wishfully thinking that he actually liked me, so much so that he would let the world know. Get real, Ella...I sipped my coffee and decided to set up my easel and canvas on our small balcony. It was a perfect day for painting, and I suddenly felt the need to start doing so.It was a weird feeling, haven't had it for years. The strokes were easy, the lines, the shapes were effortlessly drawn. I was smiling like a kid in a candy store when
"Damn, someone looks like they had quite an orgasm." Jacqueline greeted me as I entered our apartment with a huge grin on my face. Benjamin was busy plating cupcakes from the oven while wearing Gemma's very pink apron with a huge 'Spank the Chef' writing on it. "I'm still wet, still horny, and still a freaking virgin!" "You should let me pop your cherry." Benji was to my back and kissed my shoulder while he offered me the chocolate chip cupcake. "I'm saving myself for my honey bun bun." I grinned and thank him for the cupcake, then let out a delicious moan as my teeth sink into the moist chocolaty heaven."Gemma has been telling us about that, I think you should write a memoir for all of your stalker friends out there. I can already see the outline, how to bed your object of desire." Jacqueline was quick to comment while scrolling on her phone.Ben laughed, taking off the apron and placed the fresh batch of cupcakes. Then he was back to busying himself by making the white Russian
It was almost noon when I finish sketching yet another Brice's perfect face. And remembering what Ann said yesterday, I decided to be the stalker that I am and snapped the sketch and post it on my Insta page.And being a true stalker and fangirl I tagged Brice's account and his fan page. Ann was the first to comment with lots of emojis and praising my impeccable sketching skill.My creative juice seems to flow easily when my Insta notification buzzed, I put down my brush and peek at my phone. I almost knocked down my easel when I saw that Brice commented on my sketches. He never commented, not ever, he would like my posts but never comments on any of them."Ella, are you okay? you look like you've seen a ghost.""A miracle to be precise!" I shouted like a deranged woman waving her my phone."Huh?""My honey bun bun, he commented on my Insta post!" I showed it to Gemma and she slowly shook her head."You're going on a date with him tonight, you should stop calling him bun bun."I put m
Brice's POV"Brice, you know you're going to trigger your stalker by giving her the heart emoji."Clara Sherman, my agent was warning me not to poke the bear."But it is good work, I'm actually impressed. And she's not a bear, you should consider her as your little helper. She helped you with the fan group, right?"She sighed and reminded me about what happened last month when the woman sends me too many emails."I know I might overreact sometimes, but I was in a bad mood that day and her emails were bugging me,""Yeah, and who's fault is that? we have people for that, you don't
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, mygawddddd...
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
