"Just do me a favor." He said still kissing
her. Lourdes got on top of his lap as she unzipped his pants.
"What's that?" She asked reaching down and pulling his cock out.
Alex pushed her off of him and shifted his back against the
window and door to make more room. Lourdes bent down and opened
her mouth, but he grabbed her head and made her look up at him.
"Promise me that you will never, ever do
"Which part?" She asked smartly. "This part
"The other, wise-ass!"
"Fat chance!" She said smiling. "I don't know why the hell
I'm doing this for you!"
"Must be love." He said.
"Or something to that effect." She muttered. He pulled her up
towards him and kissed her. Lourdes squeezed his biceps, while
they kissed until he pulled away, still holding onto her head.
She bent back down. "Any request?" She smiled up at him. "Go
slow," he said, "very slow."
"Not a chance." She said, smiling devilishly. Alex held on to
the back of her head, making sure she stayed in place so he could
have all the control. Lourdes took his dick in her hand, placing
her thumb along his shaft and she kissed the tip of his penis.
She smiled up at him sweetly and he loosened his grip. Yeah, she
was the one blowing him but it always amazed her how most men
didn't realize how much power they were actually giving up, until
the very last second. She could decide how fast or slow she
wanted this to go. And with what he was asking, she wanted this
to go very fast. As she slowly flicked his tip with her tongue,
Alex took his hand off her head, closed his eyes and leaned his
head back, giving her free reign. The second he seemed
comfortably into it, Lourdes changed her position and put her
fingers around the base of his shaft and took all of him,
completely in her mouth. She knew his reaction would be
"Oh fuck!" He jerked forward out of shock. If she wasn't
already choking on his dick, she would be laughing. Another
"Where the fuck did you learn how to do that?" He asked.
Lourdes leaned back, taking him in her hands and stroking him.
"Now what kind of girl would I be if I gave away all my tricks up
front?" She asked biting down on her lip.
"Well fuck me." He said leaning forward and kissing her
hungrily. He pulled back as she stroked him faster and
His smile was massive. "Do that again." He said leaning back
quickly. Lourdes looked down and giggled, but she did as he
requested. She took every inch of him inside her mouth, then she
stuck her tongue out and licked his balls. Alex gasped. Her heart
started pounding. That was a first. Mostly that was her
"Oh my..." He started to say. "Your gonna make me cum." He
That was the idea. She thought to herself as she came up for
air. She continued stroking and sucking and moaning all at a fast
pace. It was all a big production, just for him, but she wanted
to work out what he needed as soon as possible. Alex ran his
fingers through her hair as she continued to bob up and down, but
once his fingers tightened, she knew he was gonna blow. Slightly
apprehensive, she still decided to give him the big finish that
he wanted. What the hell, isn't this what thousand dollar whores
and bitter housewives get paid to do all their lives? And it
didn't hurt so much, that she was enjoying the hell out of his
Alexsander let out a low moan and came in her mouth for what
seemed like forever. With his fingers still entangled tightly in
her hair, Lourdes realized what he was trying to do as he pushed
himself deeper into her mouth. She forced her head up, and looked
up at him, though he gave her very little room to move. He looked
down at her seriously. "Swallow it." He said. Lourdes let out a
light moan in protest. But at this point, the choice was really
his. He had the power once again and the grip he had on her made
"No?" He asked looking down at her smiling. "You don't want
How long was he going to fuck with her? The thought of biting
down on what was in her mouth had crossed her
"You sure I can't just poke you in the
throat?" He smiled. She put her hands on his thighs, trying to
pull away with no success, when he finally released her. Lourdes
pulled back quickly, but she had no time to react. He pulled her
up to him fast. He grabbed the back of her head again and forced
her to kiss him. She let out a moan in protest, but it was too
late, he was already sliding his tongue into her mouth. What
the fuck was he
doing? There was nothing else she could do, he was so into it.
She committed fully and kissed him back. As they continued with
their full on french kiss, she tried to transfer as much fluid
into his mouth as possible, but some, was bound to go down her
Lourdes pulled away as she could hear voices and laughter
getting closer and closer to the car. She looked out the window,
and could make out two figures of what had to be Isaac and Sophie
approaching. So much for them being gone for an hour. Lourdes
looked at Alex as he did up his jeans. He looked at her and
grinned. "Was that good for you?" He asked.
"Oh you fucking
boy." Lourdes said through clenched teeth.
"Just wait until everyone finds
"Don't you dare!" He sat forward as she turned away and
"Lourdes if you ever-"
"If I what?" She challenged him. "You're in no position to
make threats, Mr. Man!" She continued to laughed, slapping his
"Don't you dare!" He said again, trying to sound angry but
there was an unmistakable smile on his face.
"Don't you dare what?" Sophie asked as they jumped in the
Alex started coughing as Lourdes continued to laugh
"What's going on? What did we miss?" Isaac
Lourdes sat forward to speak, but Alex reached over and
covered her mouth with his hand. "Nothing," he said, "did you get
what you needed?"
"Yeah, we're cool." Sophie said. "Let's
Lourdes walked into the room and sat on the side of the bed.
It was very late, almost morning and Alex's friends were long
gone. She slid under the covers, fully awake, waiting for
tiredness to hit. No such luck. Alex rolled over and pulled her
close to him. "Avoiding me?" He said quietly, half
"You know I can never sleep in a strange place." She said.
"The water is so beautiful at night, I walked on the beach and
lost track of time."
"You shouldn't do that alone." He said burying his head
against her neck.
"I know." She sighed. "It was just this once. I might not get
"Of course you will." He said. "You'll be here
"I will?" She asked.
"Only if you want to."
Lourdes closed her eyes. She feel asleep
Lourdes sat up, looking around the room. Alone again in his
bed. It wasn't the best feeling, but it wasn't the
"Alex?" She called out softly. There was no sound anywhere.
She looked at the alarm clock. It was almost 11am. She never
slept this long, she couldn't believe it.
Lourdes reached for her purse and pulled out her cell phone
to check her messages. Two voice-mails, and two texts. Maybe too
early. She would wake up a little more before returning phone
calls. Lourdes looked over at the other nightstand. She hadn't
noticed the envelope sitting there with her name on it. She
reached her hand out to grab the note as her cell rang. She slid
open her phone but dropped the note as she looked down at the
enormous diamond ring on her hand. "Holy shit!" She said at the
top of her lungs.
"What?" Albear's voice came through unmistakably on the other
end of the line. "What happened? Hello?"
Lourdes walked into
and ordered a round of drinks. She grabbed
a free table and looked around. Nothing but hot, half naked guys
walking all around her. She drummed her fingers on the table.
Lamont and Tyler were the first to come in the door. Lourdes
clasp her hands in her lap, under the table and crossed her legs
trying to sit still. "Hi honey!" Lamont waved and came bouncing
up two her. Tyler followed behind him. They both sat
"Hi Lam, hi Ty." Lourdes smiled. "Thanks so much for
"I'm the one you should be thanking." Albear said walking in
from a different entrance, sitting down and taking off his
shades. "I'm missing my workout for this."
"We're all missing our time at the gym." Lamont said. "Don't
be so selfish."
Lourdes looked over at the bartender. "I ordered a round
hours ago." She muttered. "Who do you have to fuck to get a drink
"Relax." Tyler said. "The night's just getting started. Oh
here he comes."
The bartender came over with a pitcher of beer and a round of
"Starting off a little heavy, aren't we?" Tyler
Lourdes clinked her shot with Albear and they both drunk
"Sorry I'm late." Corey came rushing in. "What I miss?" He
"Nothing." Lourdes said. "We're just catching up. So how are
you? How was your holiday?"
"Cut the shit." Albear said. "You called an emergency
meeting, we're all here, what's going on?"
Lourdes smiled nervously. Her cell began to ring. She put her
purse on the table and started digging furiously. The ring-tone
was her black phone. It could only be one
"Finally." She said pulling it out. She was right.
"Holy shit!" Tyler said, the first to spot the hand that she
was hiding. "Is that thing real?"
Lourdes put her phone away. No time to talk, she needed
advice first. Lamont reached across the table and grabbed her
hand. "Baby, we need an explanation right
Lourdes freed her hand and reached back into her purse. She
pulled out the note.
"What's it say?" Corey asked.
Albear took the note. He read it, laughed, and handed it to
Lamont and Tyler leaned across the table trying to read what
it said. Corey read it aloud. "Left for work, couldn't possibly
wake you. Be back soon. Thanks for my present by the way, I hope
you like yours, Merry Christmas. A.J."
"Who's A.J?" Lamont asked.
"Catch up Lam." Albear said.
"We can all assume it's who we think it is right?" Tyler
"I know who it is," Lamont said with attitude, "but I thought
the initials should be A.-"
"It's probably a nick name." Corey
"Who gives a shit! What the fuck did you
give him?" Albear
asked. "To get something like
"Well it obviously wasn't gonorrhea." Lamont cracked as they
Lourdes put up two middle fingers.
"Well don't keep us in suspense," Tyler said, "tell us how
this all happened?"
Lourdes sat there with her mouth slightly open, looking
around at all of them. "I have answers to all your questions,
it's just I-" She looked around the room. "So we all agree that
this is crazy?" She looked at all of them holding up her hand and
pointing at her finger. "This is crazy
"Yes." Albear said.
"Trouble." Tyler nodded.
Corey and Lamont looked at each other.
"How about you two?" Lourdes asked them.
"I agree, sort of." Corey said, but then he got the biggest
smile on his face. "But, maybe I should hear the whole story
"Yes." Lamont said. "I mean, this doesn't have to be a bad
"That's because you're a jewelry whore." Albear
Lamont ignored his comment, taking Lourdes' hand again.
"That's a very rare diamond." He smiled at her. "Very beautiful,
very expensive. I'm sure it's safe to say that it's not an
engagement ring. Right?"
"Right." Lourdes said quickly. "I mean, I'm sure it's just
cocktail bling. Just a fun gift."
"That's not the point." Albear said.
"Alright, then give it to me." She said.
"If I may," Tyler interrupted, before Alby could give his
brutal honesty, "it's not about what kind of ring it is, though
it's a very nice ring. But it's about what something that
"And what does it mean?" Lourdes asked.
"It means that you're in the position now to do whatever he
wants!" Albear said, obviously not happy.
Lourdes looked at all of them. "Honey," Lamont said, "that
does have the ring of truth."
"That's bullshit," Lourdes said, "this is not the 1950's. It
doesn't have to be about the same power
"You might think differently, when you find yourself doing
things that you never thought he'd make you do." Albear said
drinking down his beer.
Lourdes held up her hand. "Clearly, I'm
doing that anyway."
They all started laughing. Everyone except
"Come on Alby," Lourdes whined, rubbing the side of his arm,
"you can't be mad at me, I didn't ask for this. I just want to
know what the hell do I do?"
Albear turned to her. "Give it back."
"As soon as possible." Tyler said.
"Hold on!" Lamont said. "What is the big deal? A guy she
likes gave her a ring. I don't see what the problem
Albear looked at Lourdes. "What are you doing here?" He
Lourdes was silent.
"My guess is, when you freaked out and hung up on me this
morning, that's when you first got your
"Correct." She said.
"And now here you are." He said.
"Here I am." She nodded.
"You got here awfully quick." Albear said. "You had time to
go home, drop off your things, come out here and meet
"Are you coming to a point?" Corey
"My point is, she must have freaked out,
jumped on the next plane back to the
and now here she is. It's obvious she knows
something is wrong."
"Is it?" Lourdes asked.
"What did you say to him when you got this remarkable gift?"
Albear asked. "Did you tell him you loved it? That you love him?
Did you make love afterwards?"
"I'm just curious?" He asked.
"What is the point of doing this?" Lamont asked. "She's not
allowed to be happy, cause you have to be the most important man
in her life?"
"My point is, this is not some fairy tale love story! They
are not heading towards some happy ending. And the sooner you
wake up and realize it the better. I mean, do I have to say it
"Why not." Tyler offered. "You say everything else that comes
in your head."
"No it's okay." Lourdes said. "This is what I wanted you all
here for. Every bodies points are valid. And Albear you don't
have to spell it out for me because you're right." Lamont rolled
his eyes, but Lourdes continued. "I saw that ring, and I thought,
oh god, what am I gonna do now? I panicked and jumped on the next
"You left?" Lamont asked frowning . "Without saying anything?
To him? To Saxony? Are you crazy?"
Lourdes cell started to ring again. She held it up as proof.
"Yep. I left. He was at work. I was there alone in la la land, in
his place, while Gabe is on the other side of the country and the
first thought that came to my mind was,
"Why?" Corey asked.
Lourdes shrugged her shoulders, tossing her ringing cell back
in her purse, not really wanting to say.
"Because the shiny shit that he gives you is just another
mind fuck to keep you dangling along." Albear said. "You're
smarter than that. You're better than that. And you've already
been down that road before."
"Oh you have to bring that up. Now?" Lourdes
Albear leaned over. "Don't back peddle," he said, "because,
he's never going to marry you."
Lourdes sat back in her chair pissed off. "This is not an
engagement ring. This is not a promise ring. I'm not going
backwards. I don't want to marry him either. I don't want to ever
be engaged again. And I can't believe you're even bringing this
up now! Why can't a gift just be a gift,
"If that's true," Albear said, "then why are you
