...................... The rest of the night was spent watching movies and talking. I must have fallen asleep before most of the others my head was resting on the couch next to Ryan.
“You want to walk us out?” Tera asked running her hand up and down Landon’s chest.
“Nope” he yawned “you know the way out”
“I thought we might…” she bit down on her lip and tried to look sweet.
“Er. No you got a freebie under force with the game I’m not giving it to you of my own free will” Ryan spat water out of his mouth as he choked on his drink.
“Hey you got me wet” I groaned waking up drenched Tera grabbed Karly and hauled her to the stairs looking like she was about to burst in to tears
“And I wasn’t even trying” Ryan laughed
“You’re a jerk Landon” Tear snapped as she started up the stairs.
“I know” he called back shaking his head. I got up and grabbed some napkins from the side and wiped my face and chest.
“Need a hand?” Ryan smiled walking over and picking some up as well.
“I think I got it” I sighed “I was having a sweet dream about…” I smiled and trailed off with what I was saying
“Oh you can’t do something like that we want to know what you were dreaming about and if any of us were in it” Landon called over as he stretched out.
“I’m soaked and I’m half asleep and I’m not telling you” I groaned.
“I have some spare clothes in my truck” Landon got to his feet “I’ll go grab them”
“I’ll come with you” I sighed “I could do with some fresh air” Ryan frowned and looked between me and Landon.
“Watch out for the wolves” Ryan called out as Landon and I walked up the stairs.
“Wolves” I stopped in my tracks
“He’s kidding” Landon groaned “there’s coyotes not wolves round here” he carried on up the stairs and waited for me at the top. I sighed and shook my head and went over to him.
“You’re not driving are you Landon?” Angela called over from where all the adults were sitting in the living room.
“No… Izzy got wet so I’m getting her some dry things from my truck… I swear” he shouted back. He held open the front door the storm had blown over and the night was clear and cooler I wrapped my arms round myself as we walked down the drive.
“I love the way it smells after a storm” I said out loud.
“It does smell good” he nodded “Are you cold?”
“I’m a little chilly” I nodded he stopped and looked at me.
“How’s this?” he rubbed his hands up and down my arms.
“A little better” I giggled nervously
“What about this?” he took my chin in between his thumb and finger and lowered his lips to mine. Third time tonight I’d been kissed only difference was this time I knew who was kissing me. He let go of my chin and his hand moved to my hair as the kiss became deeper and steamier. I pulled back and took a breath.
“Wow” I swallowed. ‘You kissed me earlier”
“Yep I had to take advantage while the lights went out” he laughed. “I’m sorry I shouldn’t have done it”
“Well it’s not the first time I’ve been kissed but I think it could be the fastest from meeting someone to kissing them” I ran my fingers through my hair.
“Same here” he leant against the side of a car
“Did you also kiss me outside of the house earlier?” I narrowed my eyes at him he raised his eye brows.
“No” he shook his head. “Why?”
“Well I was kissed before I started playing beer pong” I pushed my hands into my pockets and looked at him “It was dark and I just didn’t know who it was” Landon shook his head and smiled.
“I know who it was” he got off the side of the car and carried on to his truck.
“Oh you can’t leave me not knowing that’s not fair” I groaned running after him and slipping on the wet grass and ending up slamming in to him “I’m sorry”
“Don’t be” he handed me a t-shirt “there you go… and I want to talk to the person first”
“Oh it was me that got kissed” I protested
“And you’re good” he laughed.
“Er… thanks” I felt the color rise in my cheeks. “Come on who was it?” I pleaded
“No I want to talk to him first” he laughed “I had to kiss you by the way because… well after seeing what I saw when you were in the shower I thought I’d better get to know you more”
“Okay what did you actually see?” I folded my arms across my chest I don’t care how hot and weak his kisses had made me he was annoying me that he wouldn’t tell me who it was that kissed me out of the at least 15 other guys that had been there.
“Well I saw the tattoo on your hip and how the hell I missed that writing on your back is amazing me” he rubbed his hand across his jaw And you have a really cute butt” he looked down like an embarrassed kid. “But it made me want to see more” he chuckled.
“Are American guys always this forward?” I asked shaking my head.
“Only when we want something… okay that sounded totally wrong I meant…”
“I know what meant” I sighed “Look I got here yesterday… I hardly know any of you and I’ve already been kissed by two of you”
“Too soon?” He shrugged
“Yeah too soon… Tera and Karly already hate me and I haven’t even started school” I held put my arms “I have no idea what to do and say to make people like me and I have a whole year here” I spit out every fear I had. “My Dad is in Serbia, My Mom right now is on a flight to Rio and My brother is flying a fighter jet across the middle east… I have a whole lot going on in here right now” I pointed to my head.
“I understand” he sighed deeply “I’ll let the other person know as well” he offered me his arm “we’ll give you till homecoming which is October 1st and then” he kissed my cheek……………………………
