Wow. I can't believe this is chapter 40. I know that doesn't seem like alot and compared to some of the other stories that I read/have read it isn't but I never anticipated it being this long or going in this direction. I have come to think of this story in terms of a roadtrip. I made inital plans but in the end I ended up taking detours that I didn't anticipate but it ended up making the journey that much more enjoyable. I was also thinking about doing a whole seperate story for Jon and Erica but I haven't decided yet. If I do it would be from his point of view while most of what I have written about it in this one is from hers so let me know what you think of the idea.
I was waiting in the kitchen for Erica to come home from her date with Tazer. Patrick had wanted to do it but I knew that he would freak out if she was later than she said she was going to be and I knew that it wouldn't be good. Since it was proven that I didn't give myself permanent brain damage in the accident I had resumed my job hunt and made some calls. There were two that seemed promising so I was filling out online applications. I was in the middle of one when I realized that it was a little past eleven. I checked my phone and didn't find any missed messages or text and I debated about what to do. She was an adult and I wasn't her mother but I didn't want this to get off to a bad start with Patrick. I sent her a quick text to ask her if she planned on coming back to the house. It took a few minutes but I finally received one back. I guess they had went back to his place to watch a movie and fell asleep on the couch. Twenty minutes later I heard the front door open and the low murmer of voices. I didn't want to interrupt so I stayed put. She finally came into kitchen and threw herself into the chair with a sigh. I could tell by the look on her face that it had went well, but I asked anyway.
" Yeah it was great. We had a nice dinner and talked for a little while and then we went back to his place to watch a movie but honestly neither of us really paid any attention. We just sat together and he held me and kissed me and it was even better than I remember it being."
" You guys didn't um you know...."
She blinked at me a few minutes before what I was trying to ask finally dawned on her.
" Have sex?No but trust me I wanted to. If I could have jumped him the minute we got in his car I would have but he told me right away that he felt horrible for treating me like a puckslut the last time and that he wanted to take the time for us to really get to know each other before we did anything like that again."
She had the same dreamy far off look that Brent had when he told us about his girl and I was glad to see people that I loved dearly finding themselves good people that made them feel happy and loved.
" You know Brent's new girl is coming down at the end of the month to visit and meet everyone. Maybe if you aren't busy you could come down and we could all go out or something." I suggested
Her eyes lit up and she eagerly nodded her head.
" Yeah that sounds great. Just let me know when."
I got up and gave her shoulder a squeeze before I went upstairs. I was surprised to see that Patrick was still up.
" I take it Erica is home?"
" Yes and she is in one piece so you can get that look off of your face."
" Did she say anything?"
" They had a nice dinner and went back to his place and watched a movie and fell asleep on the couch." I said as I crawled into bed and cuddled up against him
" Are you sure that's what happened?" he said as he turned on his side. I couldn't help but roll my eyes at him
" That's what she said and I'm pretty sure that she wouldn't lie to me. Besides I thought you didn't want to know any details."
" I don't but I just need to know that she isn't doing anything stupid."
God he sounded like a grumpy old man.
" She isn't and from what she told me Tazer wants to take things slow and really get to know her before they get to that point in their relationship."
He visably relaxed when I told him this and I was glad to see it. I knew that he had a game tommorrow and that he should really get some sleep but it looked like he had gotten himself so worked up that he was going to be wide awake for awhile. I knew that there was something that I could do to make him relax fully and I moved so we were laying facing each other. I kissed his lips and started to rub his bare arm up and down with just my fingertips. He pulled me against him so there was no space between us and we kissed like that for a few minutes before I pulled away. The kissing was great but it wasn't what I had in mind. I instructed him to lay down and he did without asking questions. I got on my knees and moved so I was situated between his legs. Even after all of this time I was still amazed that this perfect man belonged to me, and apparently I stared for longer then I realized because he looked at me with a grin.
" Are you just going to sit there and stare at me like a piece of meat or are you planning on doing something."
I fell on him and started to kiss his neck, probably leaving a mark but not really caring. I made my way down his shoulder to his chest where I spent time licking and kissing him, making him moan my name and I hadn't even gotten to the best part yet. I licked the light colored hairs that made up his happy trail. I could tell that he was getting impatient by the fact that he was trying to move his hips so he could rub his erection against my chest but I wasn't ready to get there just yet. As much as I wanted to please him, there was a part of me that enjoyed teasing him and now that I was in control I did just that. I rolled my eyes up so I could watch his face as I moved down and licked at his length through the thin fabric of the boxers that he was still wearing. He groaned and I knew that he had enough teasing. I sat up so I could strip his boxers off and took him in my mouth as fully as I could. Between my mouth and my hands it didn't take long for me to get him off. I moved back up beside him and laid so that the length of our bodies were touching.
" What do you want me to do to you?" whispered in my ear
" Don't worry about it right now. You have a game tomorrow and I don't have a problem with you owing me so for right now just go to sleep."
I stood up so I could go to the bathroom
" Are you sure. Trust me I wouldn't mind returning the favor right now." he said as he grinned at me
" Yes I'm sure. I'll be back in a minute."
I returned from the bathroom a few minutes later and I saw that my plan had worked. He was already sleeping when I returned. I took my customary spot next to him and he moved around so that his chest was against my back. He put his arm around my waist and threw a leg over mine. I was out myself a few minutes later.
