(💙When two players fall in love💞)
I found myself nearly hyperventilating as Andre leaned in, cupping my cheeks as he did. I guess this is it. The bet will be null and void once we kiss and that’ll be the end of that.
Then, just as I felt Andre’s lips brush mine, a loud blaring sound suddenly rang out in the room.
“What’s going on?” Melissa asked just as a waiter approached us and informed us to leave as there was a fire.
It took all my strength not to jump up and hug the waiter when he said so. Instead I controlled myself as we were led in an orderly fashion out of the club.
Andre and I bid the guys good night and rushed to the car, driving away before they could ask us to kiss again or do anything of the sort.
Throughout the ride home, the car was silent probably based on the fact that we didn’t know what to say. At least I didn’t.
Once we got back home, his home that is, I wasted no time in rushing up the stairs to my room and plopping facedown on my bed. I rolled such that my back was now on the bed and placed my fingers on my lips which felt rather cold.
Just then, an image of Andre’s face as his lips brushed mine flashed in my head and I felt myself shiver slightly, my hand still on my lips. Makes me wish we’d actually kissed.
Argh! What is going on with me?
I found myself turning around on my bed unable to sleep despite how late it was and how tired I was. My body didn’t seem to mind though. Rather I was thinking about another thing entirely.
“What if Cleo and I had actually kissed?” I asked myself times without number, the experience at Chantell still fresh in my mind.
Despite the fact that our lips had barely touched, barely classifying it as a kiss, I couldn’t think about anything else. I could still feel the feel of her cheeks against my hand, I could still scent her despite how hard I tried to think about anything else and most importantly, I could still feel her lips against mine.
We hadn’t kissed yet something in me wanted desperately to kiss her. If only that stupid bet wasn’t there…if only Cleo wasn’t the hard headed lady she was, maybe then I could have done that… Then again, her being hard headed was one thing I liked about her.
I groaned inwardly again as the sound of the thunder reverberated throughout the room.
“It is really pouring down out there.” I thought to myself, bringing the blanket up to my chest as I stared at the ceiling, waiting for sleep.
Just after thunder struck again, I heard my door slowly open. I felt my body tense as I slowly reached for the lamp and turned it on.
“Cleo!” I muttered breathlessly as her face came in view.
“What – what are you doing here?” I asked, my eyes fixed on her face or specifically her lips..
They looked quite luscious, red and full as though they’d been bitten…several times. That didn’t reduce my desire to kiss them though, not one bit.
“Andre, are you listening?” I heard as I bounced back to reality, Cleo’s voice penetrating my thoughts.
“What was that?… Sorry I zoned out.”
“I said I couldn’t sleep…”
“Why couldn’t you sleep?”
The next lightning/thunder strike answered my question as I saw Cleo shiver in fear even though part of her body was still hidden behind the door.
It was obvious she was scared. That didn’t lessen my shock though. It was rare and shocking to see Cleo looking so vulnerable and scared.
“I guess you can sleep here tonight.” I said.
I saw her nod before nimbly making her way to the bed. She lay beside me and paused for a moment before placing her arms around me and her head on my chest.
“You don’t mind if I hold you like this, do you?” She asked.
“No. Of course not.” I answered hoarsely.
Cleo had no idea what this much contact between us was doing to me and my already scrambled thoughts. It didn’t help matters that I was shirtless.
I only hoped she couldn’t hear my heartbeat which had increased more than I ever thought possible.
“Your heart’s beating fast.” I heard her mutter a while later.
“What did you say?”
“I said…your heart’s…beat..ing…” She mumbled halfway before dozing off, her breath tingling my chest but I didn’t mind.
Something about this felt right and I couldn’t tell why or what it was exactly. It just did.
And so, after placing my arm around her protectively, I calmly waited for sleep to claim me and soon, I was snoring softly, a beautiful lady wrapped around me………..
T B C 😌😌
Andre and Cleo are definitely getting closer despite the bet which brings up the question : Who will slip up first?
What do you think will be Cleo’s reaction when she wakes up?
