I woke up and saw that Josh was still in bed with me. I gasped when I came to the realization that me and him spent the night together...and didn't do anything!
I watched as he slowly opened his eyes and smile at me. I ruffled his hair and said, "Good morning Sunshine!" He pulled me down on top of him and said, "Hello my love!"
We gave each other a soft kiss on the lips and then sat up in my bed. "Did you sleep good in my bed?" I asked with a little sarcasm. Josh didn't even blink.
"Shit! Has your mom been in here?!" He started panicking and rushing around picking up all his things and putting his shirt back on.
I was laughing the whole time until he asked, "What are you laughing about, Button?! I'm going to get killed!"
"No you're not, Silly! My mom's not home."
Josh stopped in his tracks and stared at me. You could see the relief go across his face. "Were you planning on telling me, Nicole?"
He wasn't acting his normal-goofy self...in fact, he sounded a bit agitated.
"Of course, I was going to tell you! I wanted to joke around with you a little, Josh." I crossed my arms and sat down at my vanity.
Josh immediately calmed down when he saw that he had upset me. "I'm sorry, baby. I just know...that...we should be more careful."
I nodded my head in agreement and said, "I'm going to get breakfeast...do you want some?"
Instead of answering me, he walked to the door and held out his arms...blocking it. "You're not leaving until I know for sure you're not mad."
"C'mon Josh. Let me through!" I tried to bob and weave past him, but ended getting pinned up against the wall. Josh had ahold of my wrists and his knee was placed firmly but softly on my thigh.
I couldn't even budge, so I relaxed and let him finish his little 'mission' to cheer me up. Josh moved closer to me, where his lips would graze my ear.
He whispered, "You can't possibly be mad at me, Button." His lips barely touched my ear and then gradually moved down my neck.
Every inch of my body was getting heated and he was sending chills down my spine. His left hand holding my right wrist relaxed and he slowly traced it down my arm, to my chest, and down my side.
He did the same with his right hand and, soon, I wasn't pinned anymore. But, I didn't want to move now.
Thinking he was going to do more, I was on the edge of getting turned on...however, he stopped.
I watched as he smiled and walked back over to the bed to put on his shoes.
"You're an ass." I quitely said. He grinned and came back over to me.
He got back to his original position and whispered "Nonsense...you'll get what you want later."
With that, he walked out the door and yelled behind him, "C'mon I'm starving!"
There we sat in the kitchen, eating my scrambled eggs and bacon. I heard the front door opening, and when I turned around, my mom and Luke were coming in the house.
I looked towards Josh and mouthed, "You just got here." He winked and nodded.
My mom pecked Luke on the cheek and said, "Thanks for taking me out this morning, Luke."
"Anything for you, Honey."
I nearly choked on my milk. Honey?! He's already giving her names of endearment?
Josh was looking at me with concern and I signaled to him that I was disgusted by rolling my eyes.
He gave me a look that said, "There just like us." No matter how much I didn't want to, I had to agree with Josh.
Luke, then, looked over at me and asked, "You got any plans tomorrow, Nicole?"
I was a little nervous..."Um. Not that I know of....why?"
Mom answered for him. "Luke was wondering if you would like to go on a hike with us! It'll be super fun!"
Luke smiled and acted like he just now noticed Josh. "Oh. Hello, I'm Luke."
He held out his hand and Josh politely shook it. "I'm Josh."
"Would you like to go hiking with us tomorrow?" Luke asked Josh unexpectedly.
Josh glanced over at me and almost laughed when he saw me nodding my head vigorously.
"Uh. Yeah, sure! Sounds fun!"
Luke clapped his hands once and exclaimed, "Great! We'll leave at about 12ish." He, then, kissed my mom and said, "I'll call you tonight."
My mom nodded and walked him to the door.
When he was gone, my mom turned back towards us absolutely beaming.
"This is going to be so much fun! It'll give you time to get to know him!"
She walked into the bathroom leaving me and Josh to finish our breakfeast and talking about how we got mixed up into an unexpected hiking trip.
While we were sitting there, my phone buzzed on the table.
I lifted up to see who it was and almost dropped my fork.
"What is it, Button?" Josh asked from across the table.
It was a txt message from my dad.
All it said was,"Hope you have a great day tomorrow! Watch out for poison ivy :) haha"
I showed the message to Josh and asked, "How does he already know we're going tomorrow?"
Simultaneously, we looked in the direction of the bathroom.
Has my mom been talking to my dad again?
