When I woke up I was alone. The bed sheets beside me were still warm. Once I let myself fully wake up I could here the shower running. I pushed the covers off of me using my feet then sat up. I ran my hand through my hair and made it fall over my shoulder. I got off the bed and walked over to my bag. Pulling out shorts, a white tank top and red plaid shirt I slipped out of my clothes putting them on.
I found a hair elastic in the front pocket and put my hair up in a loose bun. The shower had stopped by now and Adam came out of the bathroom. His dark jeans hung low on his hips and his tanned chest was bare.
My bottom lip slipped through my teeth as I glanced over at him. He was drying his hair off with the towel.
"How are you feeling this morning?" I needed a reason to be looking at him so talking seemed to be the best.
"A bit better but I can't move this arm." He said pointing to the one that was at his side.
I got up, walking over to him and turned him so I could see his shoulder. His skin was hot under my skin. His shoulder was worse then before. The stuff that was coming out of the gashes was tinged with blood. I took the towel from his hand and wiped the area around the gashes.
"We should go to the doctors now and get this looked at." I walked over to my bag and took out my phone just in case. We walked out to the stable and I tacked up Java. I mounted then gave Adam my hand and he managed to swing up behind me. I turned Java in the direction of the hospital. Adam rested his forehead against my shoulder, his arms were around my waste loosely.
"Are you not feeling well?" I glanced over my shoulder at him.
"I'm fine." I Could feel his breath through the thin material of my clothes.
"Then why are you holding on."
I felt him shrug and his arms tightened a bit. I smiled to myself, I liked being held by him. I moved my hand, the one that had been resting on my leg over his on my waist. We didn't say anything for a bit before his fingers laced through mine. He held my hand loosely, letting me let go if I wanted to.
The thing that scared me the most was holding his hand, him holding me, it wasn't close enough. I didn't know what I was feeling and but I knew he made me feel good.
I sat in the room with Adam while the doctor looked at his shoulder. My eyes were on his chest the whole time. Every time he moved the sun made his skin look like gold almost. I was nodding every so often so the doctor thought I was listening to what he was saying.
My trance was broken when Adam slipped his shirt over his head. I got up and walked out with him. He handed a piece of paper to the nurse and she gave him a bottle of pills.
"Take those twice a day, one in the morning and on at night." The nurse said. "Goodbye dear."
"Thanks." Adam said and walked out with him.
I reached into the saddle bag once we were at Java and handed Adam a water bottle. He handed me the pill bottle and I opened it for him and handed him a pill. He took it and handed me the water to open also. I sighed and took off the cap, handing it back to him. I took a carrot out of the saddle bag and gave it to Java since her bridle was bit-less.
"Done?" I put the pills and water in the saddle bag then mounted Java and helped Adam on again.
"Where to?" I looked at him over my shoulder.
"Um...I'm kinda hungry." Adam said. "There's a small cafe just down the road."
I nodded and pushed Java forward. I looked at the signs on the shop windows until I saw, 'Cara's Cafe' on one.
Taking Javas bridle off I put a halter on her and a lead rope, tying it to the post I helped Adam off of her. I gave her some grain we had for the horses and Donkey. Adam pointed over to a pile of buckets and then a pump for water. I pumped a bit of water into one of them and gave it to Java.
Adam held the door to the cafe for me with his good arm.
"Thanks." I managed to mumble and walked into the cafe. There were a couple of people sitting at the tables. Adam and I sat at one near the window.
A girl about Adams age came over.
"What can I get you?" She asked giving him a flirty smile.
I rolled my eyes and looked at the menu. There wasn't much to chose from. Eggs, French toast and pancakes.
"I'll have a coffee and eggs." Adam said.
"And for you?" She turned to me sounding much less friendly.
"Same as Adam." I said not even looking at her.
Once she was gone Adam kicked me under the table. "What was that about?"
"Nothing." I looked at him. "She likes you."
"So is that whats bothering you?" Adam smirked.
Our food was quick to arrive and we didn't talk much after that. The waitress came over allot asking if we needed anything, well she asked Adam if he needed anything not me.
"Are you sure theres nothing else I can get you?" Her eyes ran over Adam before actually looking at him.
"Just the bill." Adam said. The girl nodded and walked away.
"Are we going back to the motel or somewhere else?" I asked while reaching into my pocket for some money.
"Ya, I mean theres nothing else to do until tonight." Adam shrugged.
"Tonight? Whats happening tonight?"
"The town gets together every once in a while for a BBQ, music and dancing. It's allot of fun and the food and music is good." Adam said and paid the bill for both.
"I have money." I said and got up walking to the door with him.
"Ya I know, but I thought I would be nice and pay." Adam said. "Lets walk back to the motel, give Java a break."
I nodded and untied Java and walked with Adam. Adam took my hand in his.
"You don't mind do you?" Looking over at me, I knew he didn't want to make me uncomfortable.
"NO, I don't" I answered him softly, giving his hand a gentle squeeze.
We walked like this all the way back to the motel. Java was settled in her stall and we walked back towards our room. I was about to open the door when Adam stopped me.
"Wh-." I was cut off by his lips on mine. They were a bit chapped, but they were warm against mine. I gently pulled his bottom lip between mine. He tasted like mint from brushing his teeth and coffee. It wasn't all that bad.
I felt the door being pressed against my back. One hand was on his neck the other tangled in his hair keeping his mouth glued to mine. His hands were on my hips molding my body to his.
Yes, I realized that we were standing in plain daylight and people could see us if they just so happened to walk by.
Adam pulled back, his bottom lip slipped between mine. I loosened my grip on his hair as he did on my waist. We starred at each other, neither one of us knowing what to say.
Turning away from him I opened the door and walked into the room, hoping he would fallow me. I walked over to the bed and sat down pushing myself into the middle of it. I looked over to the door were Adam was standing. Giving him and a smile I patted the spot beside me on the bed.
He walked over and sat beside me. "I didn't mean to freak you out or anything, i'm sorry I shouldn't have kissed you." Adam pulled his eyes brows together. I noticed he did this when he was thinking.
"Don't be." I put my hand on his cheek turning his face towards me.
His eyes met mine and I leaned forward, giving him a small kiss on the lips. He smiled at me then. I leaned forward again and kissed him harder this time. I pushed him back a bit my knees going on either side of him. His hands moved from my shoulders, over my rib cage and to my hips. Running my tongue over his bottom lip, his lips parted giving me full access to his mouth.
His tongue fought with mine before he finally gave in. My tongue explored his mouth while his hands explored my body.
They ran over my stomach, down the outside of my legs to my knees then back up. They moved up my rib cage then down again. He wasn't moving past those places. His hands made the journey from my ribs to my legs and back again. I lifted one of his hands and moved it so it was cupping my left breast. I waited a bit before moving my hand from his.
His hand stayed where I put it, I could feel his hot skin through my clothes. I pushed closer to him, his other hand moved my my waist to my ass. He was about to roll us over so he was on top when my phone vibrated against his hand.
Pulling away from him I sat up taking it out of my back pocket. I sat straddling his waist and looked at the number.
"Hi dad." I said putting my phone to my ear.
