I jumped, startled, although I knew almost instantly it was him. I sat up on my bed and looked across the room to see Drake standing next to the white and gold drapes that hung delicately across the balcony window. It was dark besides the tiny desk lamp that I had turned on earlier.
I stared for a moment. He had black pants on and a black t-shirt that outlined every muscle in his tight body. I would not have seen him blended in with the darkness had he not said anything. His green eyes were all over me. I felt embarrassed having nothing on but a robe and my soaking wet hair dripping water down my back. I dropped my head down to look at the floor. A tear escaped my eye and fell onto the cherry wood floor. The sobs, came and I buried my face in my hands.
Drake was in front of me on his knees in seconds, consoling me. He wrapped his arms around me and stroked my hair. I couldn’t stop the tears. They just kept coming. I had no idea why. Maybe I was emotionally drained from everything that had happened, or perhaps it was my fear and panic of this death that seems to await me in my dreams and Olivia’s visions. I am not one to cry in front of anyone, but Drake held me comfortably in his arms. I let my hysterics out and managed to pull myself together after a few minutes. He still had me in his strong arms, rubbing my hair, not saying anything.
He understood it was something that had to be done, and I would finish it. That was one of the reasons I was falling in love with him. Besides being so understanding, we could have a full conversation with each other without any words. He could look at me and know, and I could look at him and know. He knew I needed to do this, and that this cry was long over due, and that all he was supposed to do was hold me. No advice; no talking. Just be there.
Finally, I looked up at him. He kissed me on my forehead and placed his hands around my face wiping the tears away without saying anything at all. He kissed my lips hard and passionately. It was a long awaited kiss and the release of a day’s worth of anticipation.
“Chloe, I … ” I put my finger up to his mouth to quiet him. I didn’t want to hear anything but the sound of our breathing. He kissed me again, sitting down on the bed next to me. I climbed up onto his lap and wrapped my arms around his neck. I took control and kissed him hard, gripping his hair in my hands and running my fingers through it. I couldn’t get enough of him or close enough to him. I was never satisfied when I was with him. I wanted every single part of him.
He gave in grabbing my waist and legs while still kissing me. We never took our eyes off of each other. He stood up and carried me around to the side of the bed, and laid me down. He pulled his shirt off and my jaw dropped at how magnificent his naked body looked. I never imagined being so stunned by his beauty. It drove me wild. He climbed on top of me, his hand sliding up and down my leg while he placed kisses all over my neck. The tension was unbearable. He slipped his hand underneath my robe sliding it slowly off my shoulders as he kissed them. My hands were all over his back, nails slightly digging in out of frustration and eagerness from wanting him so badly. I gave up fighting the urge to move slowly like a good girl and unclasped his belt, and slid his pants off with my feet. He smiled underneath our kiss. He untied my rob, removing the little bit of fabric left covering me, and slid it off, sending chills through me. It joined his pile of clothes on the floor. He stopped and stared into my eyes. My heart was beating erratically.
“I don’t want to lose you,” he whispered.
“Then don’t,” I replied kissing him.
