She had never imagined that visiting a childhood friend on his birthday party would turn disastrous like that. She very well couldn’t have imagined that said friend would be the cause of it.
“I love you” Jack slurred.
He was determined. He had loved Myra for so long, he wanted a relationship and he was going to tell her that come hell or high water. He tightened his grip on her arm and tried to pull her to him. A tight resounding slap shocked him enough to step back from her. She knew that he had one too many and would be regretting it the coming morning. She had always known of his crush on her but he had never tried to be forceful before. It wasn’t in his nature. She had known him for too many years to count. So she knew that he will be beating himself up plenty in the morning because of her.
Myra saw her chance and escaped out into the night. She wanted peace and only one place could help her with that- the wishing well of Kusu Island in Singapore.
The wishing well was situated on the lake with water surrounding the well on both sides. It was a beautiful starry night. The still waters gave off the reflection of the Moon and the stars enhancing the perfection of the night. The quiet and relax that the place brought to her was surreal. She stepped near to the well and took a much-needed breath to relax further. Her eyes closed to absorb the stillness of the night and feel the wind gently caress her.
She was so lost in her mind that she didn’t hear anyone approach.
“It’s beautiful here, isn’t it?”. said the stranger making her jump in fright.
She turned so fast that she stumbled and found herself being steadied by a pair of strong muscular arms. They screamed of strength and power yet were gentle in their touch. Her eyes caught those of her stranger and she almost forgot to breathe.
‘Beautiful’ Myra thought.’…and so very handsome’
The stranger was a tall man with broad shoulders. She could almost imagine those very shoulders looming over her in the darkness of the night while they lost themselves into the passion. She bit her lip as she continued to take in the handsome stranger. He had a wide forehead, a set of deep dark eyes and a smile curling up at his very kissable lips.
‘Okay Myra’ she thought to herself in admonishment ‘That is enough. What is wrong with you? You don’t even know him.’ The last thought brought her back into the real world.
“I am sorry but do I know you?” She asked
“Um… No actually but I wanted you to.” He replied smiling. “I was at the party too.” he continued with a flick of his head in the direction of the party.
“Huh! I guess I didn’t see you there.” mentally she was berating herself for missing this handsome stranger at the party.
“You seemed occupied,” He said with a shrug and then chuckled “But see my luck that you ended up at this Wishing Well as well.”
She smiled a little at the coincidence and was thankful for this chance.
“It’s one of my favorite places.”she murmured giving a long slow look to the place. It had been her sanctuary for as long as she can remember.
“And now it’s mine too” he replied back instantly making her look at him again. Her breath caught in her throat. She could feel the intensity of his stare all the way to her core. She couldn’t help but be sucked right into those intense eyes that gazed at her heatedly.
He took a step closer to her which she countered by taking a step back.
“I have been watching you the whole night.” he murmured. One step forward. One step back. “I watched you dance and had wanted to come over.” Few more steps and he had her pinned against the railings surrounding the Singaporean Wishing Well. They were so close that they could practically hear each others hearts beating against their chests. “I wanted to feel your body writhe along mine so that I could feel you, all of you,” he growled softly in her ear. “I couldn’t get enough of watching you,” he emphasized with a small nip at her earlobe.
He gently sucked on the earlobe eliciting a deep moan from within her. She was so aroused. She hadn’t felt this turned on by anyone ever. But this stranger had her feeling things by his voice alone. She couldn’t imagine what would it do to her if he did actually touch her.
Only thinking about that, had her squirm and rub her thighs against each other to soothe the ache between her legs.
He noticed that chuckling sexily and hummed beside her ear making her gasp again. He traced his nose along her ear to her cheek down to her neck and placed a small kiss behind her ear. Her weak spot which again didn’t go unnoticed by him and he exploited that. He proceeded to place open mouth kisses there and gently sucked on the skin. Her legs gave away and she began to fall. But he supported her body holding her up in his strong arms. Her legs had turned into jello. They were useless right at that moment. He pulled back after few more moments of sweet torture and looked into her eyes. He wanted to continue what they were doing but he wanted to be sure that she wanted it as well. He had wanted her the moment he had set eyes on her. He could still recall her sweet laughter that had done things to his heart he couldn’t understand. He had churned in jealousy watching her with Jack all night. He had never been the one to be jealous. He had always been the confident one when it came to women. He was comfortable in his own skin but this woman had changed all of that. Something about this woman in his arms was different. He felt something more than just lust. He wanted to explore that feeling.
“I want you so much. Tell me you want it too.” He demanded softly.
His breath washing over her face further intoxicating her with his presence. Words failed her so she only nodded. She wasn’t sure that she could even speak at that moment.
“Fuck” he moaned and moved his hands to her hips. He pulled her closer and planted his lips firmly on hers.
‘Finally’ both of them thought in unison.
They started slow but soon slow wasn’t enough. Their hands wandered exploring and groping each other. He pulled her bottom lip into his mouth and sucked on it. She opened her mouth for him when he traced her bottom lip with his tongue. Soon they were lost in the deep kiss again. Her hands trailed his broad shoulders, strong muscular arms and her fingers threading through his soft silky hair. He moaned into her mouth when she pulled on them to bring him closer. With one hand still holding his hair, she traced his shoulders and his arms with the other hand. The muscles of his biceps flexing under her touch making her moan slightly. She broke away from the kiss to let herself breath. His lips didn’t leave her skin. He kissed her chin, her neck and sucked on her shoulder blades. Threading his fingers onto her long tresses, he pulled her head back to expose the erotic curve of her neck. He placed open mouth kisses along her neck and traced the hollow of her neck with his tongue.
“Oh God” she moaned loudly.
She just couldn’t take this anymore. She wanted him and wanted him right now. She didn’t believe they would make it somewhere private. At least she couldn’t at this point. She was too far gone for that. She brought her mouth on his again and kissed him like there was no tomorrow. She unleashed all that she was feeling and she didn’t care whoever saw them. Deep down inside, the risk of being caught made her all the more ravenous for the man she currently had in her arms. The man she couldn’t get enough of. He picked her up and sat her on the railings without parting their lips. Her skirt bunching up along her thighs. His hands finding purchase at the soft creamy thighs pulling the material up to expose more of the skin.
“Come home with me”, he panted against her mouth between kisses.
“No” she moaned and deepened the kiss again “Fuck I can’t wait any longer. I want you now.” She growled and started pulling at the buttons of his dress shirt.
She growled in annoyance and frustration when her fingers couldn’t find purchase on the buttons. She was practically shaking with her need for him. Her reaction to him made him want to rip off her dress and have her scream his name into the still night for everyone to hear. He was shocked and completely taken over by the feeling. He had never felt so possessive of someone or had even wanted someone to the point of madness. But he did now. Oh God! He wanted her so fucking much. He didn’t just want to fuck her. He wanted to take his time with her. He wanted to worship every inch of her body all night long. He wanted to savor each second of their coming together. But it seemed it wasn’t going to happen for their first time. And he had no complaints whatsoever. He would make it up for it later. He vowed to himself and wished the Wishing Well to grant him the chance to do just that.
With that thought in mind, he pulled his shirt out of the waistband of his jeans and ripped it open with buttons flying everywhere. The way he ripped his shirt was so erotic to her for some reason. She didn’t waste time attacking his belts and loosening them. The rest was just a blur of clothes-shedding, soft laughs, hands exploring, soft moans and screams of pleasure. It was fast and rough but it was the best sex she had ever had in her lifetime. She had lost count of the number of times she had come. She bit her lip to stop the enormous smile from taking over her face. She was sitting with her back to his front against the railing that encircled the Wishing Well. His fingers tracing small figures on her bare arms and both of them breathing in tandem. Looking at the well, she remembered coming up here with her grandfather for the first time. He had told her to make a wish. The memory making her smile softly.
“Are you ever going to tell me what are you smiling about?”, he asked. She gasped and sat up straight. She turned her head to look at him over her shoulder.
“How did you know I was smiling?”, she asked.
He smiled and pulled her back to him. “I just do”, he breathed into her ear making her breath hitch.
In truth, he had been watching her and it seemed like that is what he was doing all the time ever since he saw her for the first time. But it was never enough. And now that he have had a taste of her, he was sure that he would never stop craving her. He pushed aside her hair exposing her neck and shoulder to him. He then kissed her behind her delicate ear. He had learned that it was her sweet spot and like a charm it worked. She melted against him with a soft moan. Her hands finding purchase in his hairs instantly keeping him there. His hands started trailing up from her thighs to her stomach. But before they could continue their journey upwards, a shrill ringing of the phone startled them. He was annoyed with the interruption.
He picked up the phone and snapped. “Who is this?”
“Don’t snap at me! Where are you?”, his friend snapped back. “We have a flight to make man and you aren’t anywhere to be found. Where did you run off to?”
“Oh Shit!”, he cursed and moved to stand up hurriedly. Myra looked at him quizzically but gave him the way to move. He motioned for her to get dressed. He smirked to himself when he noticed his ruined shirt. “I completely forgot. What is the time now?”, he asked pulling on his shoes.
“It’s 4 in the morning.”, came the reply making him curse some more.
“Fuck! The flight is just in two hours. I have not even packed. I gotta go. I will be there soon.”, he said and hung up. Myra heard the mention of the flight and his leaving. She froze. She didn’t want him to leave. She was foolish to think it could possibly turn into something more. She had been wrong. It was just a one-night thing for him. She wanted to cry but didn’t want to appear weak so she held it in. She decided she would deal with the aftermath when she was safe at her home and alone. She breathed deeply and braced herself for the awkward conversation she was sure that was coming her way.
“I am sorry but I have an urgent flight to make. It’s work related. So, if you are ready, can we leave for my place?” He asked.
“Your place?” She was confused. Why would he want her at his place?
“Yeah my place,” he said slowly and frowned. “Well, I thought… well after last night” he stuttered and rubbed the back of his neck awkwardly. For the first time in his life, he was unsure with a woman. Did she not want to be him? Was it a one-night thing for her? He frowned.
She did a double take but agreed. He smiled in apparent relief.
“I…I just don’t want my time with you to end so soon.” He murmured taking her hand and placing a soft kiss on her palm.
“Me either” she whispered and stepped into his embrace completely. They stood there for a moment savoring the moment with their foreheads touching.
With a sigh, he pulled back. “I really need to leave now. Will you help me pack?”
“Okay then let’s go,” she replied with a nod. “You know you never told me your name.” she accused teasingly.
“You never asked.” he countered.
“I am asking now.” her eyes narrowed.
“No, you are not,” He said pulling her flush against him. He nipped at her lips playfully. “But I will tell you anyway. It’s Jamie” he replied and earned a beaming smile from the women in his arms. He couldn’t resist kissing her again…….
Jamie left that day but he gave Myra his contact details. They talked regularly over the phone. He was gone for over a course of three months. When he returned, they made their relationship official. They went on their first date at the same Wishing Well they met for the first time. The date night concluded much the same as their first meeting.
Having stayed away for three whole months, they were ravenous for each other by the end of the night. But Jamie still had to fulfill the vow he had made to himself. He wanted to worship his girl all night long and he did so in spades. The morning next to that night, Myra woke up to the smell of coffee and breakfast. She smiled trying to bury herself into the soft sheets of the bed. They had returned to his place the night before to continue their date and she was wearing the sexiest of lingerie. And what a date night it had been. She could still feel him in all the right places of her body. She was still completely bare under the sheets.
“Wake up, sleepyhead” she heard the sweet voice of her man calling to her. She couldn’t ignore him. So, she rolled over and sat up bracing herself against the headboards. She pulled the sheets up to cover herself and smiled at the sight before her.
Jamie stood beside the bed with a sweet smile on his handsome face. His eyes shining and full of warmth. He was naked from the waist up and beautiful. He was everything she had ever wanted in a man and then some.
“You didn’t have to do that.” she said as he handed her the coffee and the breakfast tray.
“I just wanted you to feel at home,” he replied kissing on her head. He sat beside her and they ate in silence. After they were finished, he put the tray aside and pulled her to him.
“Thank you! You are too good to me,” she mumbled into his chest. He placed a kiss into her hair and breathed her scent in. It was floral and something spicy. Both of those driving him wild with want every time he came across her.
“God I missed you so much” he mumbled into her hair. She placed a kiss on his chest and tightened her hold on him slightly.
“Me too,” she said.
He sighed. “You are coming with me next time,” he demanded with a pout in his voice which made her giggle.
“What makes you think that I will? she teased looking up at him.
“If you don’t then I will make you.” He growled tickling her. He loved hearing her laugh.
“Stop please” She gasped between her laughter.
“Say you will go with me” he continued tickling her. She shook her head. “Say it”
“Ahhh!!! Okay fine” she gasped “I will”
“I will what?” he pressed.
“I will go with you.” she practically screamed.
“Good! Was that so hard?”
She relaxed when he stopped the attack. She noticed the smug grin he was sporting. She had missed him a lot and had at one point visited the Wishing Well to relive the memories of their first and only night together before he had to leave for business. She had recalled the way her grandfather had shown her how to make a wish. In one of her desperate moments, she had wished for him to come back to her. She was afraid he would forget all about her and find someone better than her. She had been wrong on that account because he had missed her as much as she did. So, the thought of moving didn’t bother her at all.
But she also knew that he wasn’t going to force her to move with him. That thought along with him even considering her moving with him was enough to ensure her that he was in it for the long haul and it was true love. He had so much as said it on our date last night. And he had been perfect this past month. She couldn’t wait to find out what life had in store for her with this great man by her side every step of the way.
