“If I just lick it off will that help?” he swirled his tongue and I could see his cheeks bulge as I stared in amazement at what this man was doing for me.
“I guess that should be okay,” he continued to then next took my face in his hands bringing my lips to his. He pushed them into my mouth and I swallowed while still keeping contact with my lips.
We both didn’t move as his tongue continued to persuade me to stay still. He was a good kisser, not aggressive or over daringly using tongue.
After what felt like a minute or two he released me, “Um, I just thought that was the best way to administer them.  I didn’t think you would want to hold them after that.”
“Oh, yeah,” I went beet red as I remembered the whole reason he did it. I guess I could tell my kisser that it wasn’t necessary but then again he went through all the trouble of buying a new bottle for me, then taking the candy coating the best way he knew. “By the way… you’re a great kisser, incase you ever doubted your abilities,” I knew I was already red from the drinks I had before but I felt really hot and rather if he didn’t look at me.
He came closer again and held my cheek my before checking my forehead and placing a hand to the back of my neck, “You’re really red hopefully the Tylenol will help with all that.” He smiled at me before kissing my forehead, “At least it doesn’t feel like fever, good to know before I wake up with one myself.”
My drunk self wanted to laugh and play it off, but my sober self stuck in the depth of my mind told me to run away. As if I could think straight as this beautiful man held the nape of my neck and looked at me in the eyes.
“You said you were from out of town before, so where are you staying?” he wrapped his arm around me and brought me back to the bench I was on before when he found me. He sat me down and sat very close to me letting our legs touch as he held my shoulders with his arm never leaving them now.
“I was waiting for this one guy to grab his car and then head back to pick me up, I’m not sure what happened. I hope he’s okay, even if he left me here. I shouldn’t trust him anyway he was always like this when he lived at my mom’s place. He’d be jealous I found a hot guy and he didn’t!” I covered my mouth  after blurting that out.
“So he’s gay? He probably found his own hot guy on the way to the car. You wouldn’t want to third wheel that situation,” he was smiling and looking beyond the light post that lit the bench. “Do you have his number? I could call him for you and tell him where he left you. I kind of hate it already for leaving a gorgeous girl like you all by herself.”
“Gorgeous?” I unconsciously sunk closer into him.
“Ha-ha, yeah well no phone I guess?” he laughed for another moment before taking his phone out. A picture of a dog as the front cover with him sitting next to it. The golden retriever in the photo told me that he was definitely playful and lovable. Why didn’t he have a girlfriend to be with right now?
“Where’s your girlfriend?” I tucked my arm around his back and held his shirt as I braced to have an image of being with him thrown away.
“I hope you think of me better then to be with another girl while I have a girlfriend. That would be cheating to kiss someone else,” he made circles on my arm as he held me close.
My dress was feeling constricting but I wasn’t going to take anything off, “well you were just giving me some Tylenol no need to think of it as kissing.”
He laughed a bit again and I felt his chest vibrating from the chuckles, “Well sure, next time it’ll be a real kiss no meds involved okay. I don’t have a girlfriend, but I also want you to get to where you’re supposed to be right now.”
“I don’t have my phone with me I left it in my backpack at the apartment, it’s too big and I didn’t need tit for dancing and drinking,” I was smiling now as I listening to his heartbeats going steadily.
I was laying my head to his chest and listening to him as he talked a bit more, “I never do this and I know you probably wouldn’t believe me but do you think that you would be okay with coming to my place. I’ll call your friend tomorrow and have a stern talk with him because he should have never let you be alone tonight, or any night!”
I started to hear my heart beating as I thought it over. The bench wasn’t comfortable enough to sleep on and I could get mugged or something. Then there was this random man that I just met less then twenty minutes ago that woke me up, fed me Tylenol from a 24-hour shop. 
“What’s your name? I want to see some ID,” I took my head off his chest and placed my free hand out for him to hand me his ID.
“Okay, yeah fair enough,” he seemed willing to let me got throw his whole wallet for some reason.
Another picture of the dog was there, “You have pretty dog.” I continued byy turning the wallet over and seeing his name cards and ID.
He held out his hand, “I’m formally known as Thomas or Tom but feel free to call me-.”
“James, you go by your middle name even when your first name is James?” I took his hand, “I’m Julia, I don’t usually get trashed and end up on random street benches an d I would love it if you lent me some clothes when we get back to your place. This dress was fun before now it’s uncomfortably fashionable.”
He laughed again and stood up before realizing I couldn’t keep on my feet as I tried to stand, “You mind if I help you get there faster?”
I looked at him seriously, “Fine but only this once!”
“Yes, ma’am!” he took me by the knees and back and proceeded to carry me down the street.
“How far do you live from here? I might fall asleep before we get there if it takes too long,” he laughed at that.
He held me closer until my head was nestled to his shoulder and started to hum as if that was his answer to me falling asleep. he was nice and strong, which was apparent to me after a while. It wasn’t too far because it only took a few minutes to get there by foot.
He set me down on a porch chair startling me awake as the cold chair forced me to stand so I could help conceal some heat by being next to him.
James unlocked the door, “My pretty dog is just behind this door so don’t be startled by the wiggling and jumping mess he gets into when he sees me.”
He pushed the door open and the dog was right there as he said waiting to greet us, “I wish I wasn’t so tired or I’d be all over that happy guy.”
“Hmm, well maybe once you are feeling better and the headache goes away,” he wrapped an arm around me and lead me into the bungalow style home. Passing a bathroom and leading me to sit on a bed as he shuffled around in a big closet.
I felt oddly safe in his presence and the dog was a big help at helping me feel welcome, “You going to show me to the guest bedroom?”
“Well actually I and bud will probably just take the living room, there’s a lock on the door here and you get the bed to yourself. Don’t worry I changed the sheets this morning after Bud decided he needed to jump on the bed with muddy paws,” he pat Bud on the head as he followed him through the room towards me. He placed a pair of sweatpants next to me and then held a giant shirt up to me. 
“thanks, but I can definitely take the couch, if not for you then Bud should have the  bed for being so dang adorable,” I smiled as the dog perked to hearing me say his name licking my arm as I sat silent for another moment. 
“No way, I wouldn’t be a gentleman if I let you do that. Bud agrees he wants you to feel better and he likes to cuddle so I’ll be out in the living room if you need anything,” he walked to the door and whistled but Bud wanted me to continue to pat his head.
“Oh no, he loves me already. Funny how that happened,” James crossed his arms and looked at Bud.
“Buddy let’s go,” he whimpered at James before relenting with his tail between his legs.
“He can stay if he wants, I don’t mind the company. I think I’d prefer it,” I sat for only a moment longer before they seemed to have looked at each other. Bud came back wagging his tail as he sat on the bed with me.
James walked away slowly almost looking rejected. I stood and closed the door before putting the shirt over my head and sliding the tube dress off. The sequence was awesome to look at not wear with all the horrible chaffing lines that seemed to sore my body. They never lasted long but it was annoying for the moment. I’m not much of a healer.
I thought about putting on the pants but decided against it. I looked at Bud as he stared at me now wagging his tail. I patted his head before jumping on the bed and he snuggled up next to me before I could even lift the blanket.
“You’re funny guy, kind of like James, so sweet and helpful. I guess I could offer to make breakfast or something, or go out for breakfast because I mainly end up burning something,” Bud sighed and laid his head on my stomach for a moment as I breathed deeply.
A knock at the open door sparked my interest, “Hello sorry to interrupt your gossiping session, but I didn’t realize I forgot to get pajamas for myself.” He scratched his head and I muffled a laugh as I hugged Bud to my face.
“Well I don’t need the sweat pants, they’d be too big for me anyway,” I laughed out for a moment before I noticed how embarrassed he was. “I know you said you don’t do this a lot but did you run out of liquid courage already mister suave?” he looked at me as he grabbed the sweat pants and then sat at the end of the bed.
“Actually you were the only one drinking tonight between the two of us. So if that makes me even weirder then I already am, I can pretend it was from intoxicated behavior,” he was smiling even though I didn’t see it. I felt the shift in the bed as he slid his shirt off and threw it to the laundry bin.
“You ruined that by saying big words, I’ll never be able to believe you now. Also it’s not weird to be a kind person who cares about a girl who almost became homeless for a night. Plus I didn’t have my cell phone,” I giggled to myself as he stood up and walked into the hallway probably to the bathroom.
He came peeking back in with a knock and a quiet, “Hello.”
“We were just discussing you actually,” I held Bud’s ears up as he looked at James for help probably.
“Oh really? What about? I thought you were tired,” he stood on the opposite side of the bed from me. I crawled over to the edge of the bed and grabbed his hand.
“Whoa, one question at a time,” I lifted his hand and placed it to my cheek and Bud came and lay there beside me leaning his head on my lap. “We were talking about you and how you should have your bed back because I can only fall asleep to the TV anyways. Just like when you were humming it reminded me of the white noise I listen to all the time.”
“Okay then let’s just bring you to the living room and I can carry you back to the bed after,” he seemed convinced this was a good idea.
“You don’t have to worry about me leaving tomorrow without saying thank you. Plus you are probably tired of carrying me,” I started to stand before he lifted me and brought me to the next room which was the living room.
He set me down and covered me with a large blanket as he flipped through the channels. I fell slowly onto him as I leaned is way. Crashing into his shoulder first then leaning hard onto his arm until he wrapped it around me again. 
I was comfortable under his grasp, Bud lying by our feet until I moved my feet to be on the couch. I was curled up in James’s arms and I felt comforted by the fact that we had kissed. It almost felt like a real date, or a movie night.
As if we had been together for a while now, “James can you hold me?”
“I already am,” he chuckled and it felt nice to be against his shirtless chest as it was warm and firm but not horribly uncomfortable.
“Don’t let me go just yet okay, I could fall asleep on you so don’t move too much,” I laughed now.
“Yeah, no pressure right? I always get to make it up to you later,” he hugged me and kissed the top of my head now, almost rocking me to sleep as his warmth took me in and cradled me.
“Yeah, get it up later,” I immediately fell asleep even as he muffled a laugh.

----------------------------------------------------

I woke up on the bed with a warm pillow on either side of me, I felt around and realized it was the dog in back of me where most of the room was and James was on the edge. The bed was a king sized and I knew how to hog the bed unless he placed me here. Or Bud took the middle first.
I only moved my hand up to his neck as James woke up. He looked at the time then sighed a good morning in a recklessly handsome scruffy voice, “Good Morning Julie.”
I could only squeak out a simple, “Mornin’,” before rolling away and bumping Bud as he lounged half asleep still.
I didn’t get far before I was pulled back, “I’m sorry if I have morning breathe but you can stay like this for a bit longer, I’m getting used to having you as my cover.”
I blushed into his chest as he held me there, “Well maybe a while longer before my head catches up to me.”
“Okay, deal because you said we could go for breakfast last night,” I was being held against a topless man and I didn’t hate the feeling. He also seems financially stable because of the house and all.
“I don’t remember a good part of last night only the few times you kept holding me to you and I fell asleep,” he rocked me for a moment then shifted so I was on my side instead of on top of him.
“I trust you to remember enough of last night to be comfortable around me,” he hugged me tighter.
“I fell asleep after the TV started playing,” I smiled and then hid my face with my hands which he was quick to take away from my face and put them on his face.
He kissed my palms and closed his eyes for a moment before looking at me and smiling. The blush hadn’t disappeared from my face and I was now biting my lip watching his expression turn from sleepy to happy then back to a smirk before he licked my hand.
I was frozen  as he kissed my hand again, “Uh, breakfast right?”
He let go of my hands and I was still holding his jaw and playing with his lips as he closed his eyes and breathed deeply. It made me look down over his body for the first time. He was ripped and gorgeous. I was holding a gorgeous mans face playing with his lips as I bite my lip and he let’s me. I am also in his bed wearing just a shirt and my cute girl panties.
Light blue makes me look more tan and the little bows and sheer material makes me actually bite my lip, “Ow.”
He opens his eyes and touches my shoulder, “You okay?”
“I bit my lip, nothing major. Uh…” I take my hands back and try to roll away.
He grabs me again and pulls me back this time my back to him I can feel his toned stomach on the back of me and I almost moan. I stop myself before it becomes a full moan and try to play it off as a yawn. He yawns and kisses the back of my neck, “Do you want me to look at it?”
“No,” I say that too fast because he’sback to laughing and put a finger to my chin.
“You sure?” he kisses my neck again and leans over me, “I wouldn’t want it to swell and for you to feel uncomfortable while eating or anything,” he was smiling over me and all I could do was pull the blanket over my face as his hand still held my face. I grab his hand and hold it.
“It should be fine, just trying to hide my shame right now,” he pulled the covers off me just to join me under them. Bud thought it was a game and jumped on top of us.
“Sorry he likes to play even in the morning,” James wrapped me in his arms, “I’ll hide with you so you don’t get lonely. Plus you’re like really cuddly.”
I was a plus size woman fully aware that I was beautiful and a confident girl. Being called cuddly was a little cute, just a little. “Would you mind, uh, well nevermind.”
I held his hand and intertwined my fingers before letting go.
“What’s the matter?”
“James I don’t ever think I actually umm well…” I blushed and tried to hide my embarrassment.
“You don’t have to feel scared, this is a no judgement zone. No one here is judgmental, buds rather a good listener like his owner,” he chuckles and nuzzles my neck.
“Oh well cool, cool but I feel super embarrassed telling a really nice and attractive person this,” I turned  and looked at his face under the covers the light barely came through the black duvet covers.
“nice and attractive? Speak for yourself I’m trying really hard to not like, well actually you go first. I’m just being weird,” he rubbed my arm soothing me.
“Yeah you are, is that normal to wake up to someone you don’t really know?” (then want to kiss them) I poked his face and his smile grew.
“Oh no definitely not a normal thing or even a thing I’ve done before really. I only wake up to my dog now a days,” he turned his face into the pillow, “I’ve been single for a while.”
“Oh, well yeah that makes sense. I’ve never been in a relationship though.”
“That’s hard to believe,” he turned his full attention to me, “You scared of commitment?”
“Oh no I would love commitment but I’m really horrible at dating and once people here I’m a virgin they really get either turned-off or want to be my first without waiting or trying to love me for me.”
“Oh boy, that’s quite unfortunate for them,” he shrugged and held my hand kissing it again.
“So… where should we go for breakfast,” he wasn’t hesitant before responding.
  “ I know this really cute café that I can bring Bud out to and we just sit around and have tons of coffee and croissants.”
“Okay,” I smile and pull the covers off me burying him under so he can’t stop me.
“So, that’s a yes?” he had only his head poking out of the covers.
“Of course, but maybe I should wash up and maybe call my friend he’s probably going to flip when he sees you. Uh wait sorry are you okay with driving me there after? Unless we could actually just walk there. I don’t now we took an uber last night but we were already past the point of-” he was u[ and out of bed within the time I had rambled to this point. Now hold my hand he played with my fingers and I couldn’t stop staring at his chest because he was right in front of me.
  He held my and to his chest and then I looked away completely forgetting what I was doing. He twirled me and rested his arm over my shoulders, “Of course I can drive you, if it’s too far and I don’t know how happy he’ll be to see me after I talk to him about leaving you all by yourself.”
He grabbed both of my shoulders and pushed me to the bathroom, “I’ll grab a towel if you wan to shower, and probably another shirt… unless you want to wear that dress again?”
I looked at him in the mirror as he rummaged through the cupboard behind the door. He grabbed a towel and I looked away as he came behind me and wrapped his arms around me.
“I mean your dress was cute but your way cuter in my shirt, personally speaking,” he smiled and kissed the side of my face making the mirror seem like a picture too perfect for what I’m used too.
“I’ll take another shirt for now but I can’t leave in just a big shirt,” he continue to smile and I tried to tame my hair as he just seemed to bask in the moment of me blushing and trying to calm myself.
“Okay, I’ll go grab something, start your shower and I’ll come knocking with your clothing. Okay?”
“Yup,” I grabbed the towel and watched him leave the bathroom.
He didn’t close the door but just stand there and watch him come back and close it, “You should probably close this.” He gives me a winning smile and a wink before closing it.
  I finally move when I shake off some of the awkward from my skin as I shed the shirt and leave my underwear hiding underneath it. That would be embarrassing if he saw them.
I hop into the shower closing the curtain after me as the spray turns from cold to warm then hot. I just soak there for more then a minute before I hear the door open and a knock sounds.
“Hello, I hope you don’t mind but I’m just going to put this here and take the other shirt should probably go for a wash. Don’t worry I’ll start it once your done so don’t freak out about it getting too hot or cold. Whatever happens when you turn the washer on at the same time, ha-ha okay? Cool,” he came further in the bathroom and grabbedeverything. That’s when I realized he was taking everything.
“Uh, wait!” 
“Yes?” I reached a hand out and I felt weird again as I brought it back in.
I could see his shadow through the curtain and it was intimidating to say the least, “i-I, well I can do that after just leave it there. No need to take-”
“You don’t have to feel embarrassed I’m the one who should eb embarrassed that you see my minimalist life style,” I had to laugh when I turned to see the three in one shampoo, conditioner and soap.
“You this doesn’t work right?”
“It works fine, I like the smell at least.”
I smelt it and then used some trying to get this shower over with, “Now I get to smell like you, wow how great and fresh… actually smells like, like a… well not very girly I’ll say.” I giggled to myself.
“Yeah, well at least it smells good considering you didn’t hate cuddling up to me last night,” he laughed now.
“Aren’t you going to go get ready? I can’t get dressed with you here,” I rinsed off and felt contempt to just stand in the heat of the shower but not when someone was right there.
“Actually I need to brush my teeth before I put a shirt on it’s a routine thing. Good luck and all that, seems to have worked so far.” I could just imagine his face.
I pulled the curtain back just enough to look at him as he leaned on the counter and handed me the towel, “Dry off and I’ll go to the living room with bud, just you can have the whole bedroom and bathroom to yourself.”
“Oh thank you.” I grabbed the towel and dried off but I didn’t hear him leave. I peeked around the curtain again.
He was brushing his teeth now turning the faucet on.
He just continued casually as I slipped out in just a towel. I swear he was holding back a laugh as he almost choked on his toothbrush. I was quick to grab the shirt and head to the room before he could comment on me more.
I closed the door and I didn’t hear a knock until I was sitting on the bed my hair soaking the new shirt. I blue V-neck that was a bit tighter then the last but I had the towel this time and I held it to myself as he walked in.
  “I’m going to put a shirt on now,” he came in holding his shoulders until he got to the dresser, “Sorry if I’m weird. You just make me feel comfortable and nervous at the same time. It’s weird I won’t ponder on it too much.”
I watched him pick a shirt and throw it on, “yeah, well no harm done I think I’m rather awkward and weird. No judgement zone here.” I mocked his voice as I said it.
He turned on me gaped mouth, “well then aren’t you just trying to be sassy.”
I hugged the towel harder and turned away, “maybe.”
“oh okay try and be the innocent one here but you are the one who’s making me all, weird,” he pulls the shirt over his head and I can’t help but watch him as he turns. He goes to start the wash and I an sitting there waiting with a half-wet towel.
“Do you have shorts or something I can borrow for my bottom half,” I ask him as I bit my lip trying not to remember waking up in his arms. On this very bed.
He is quick to find something in the closet and had it to me as he sits beside me on the bed, “Sorry about that just figured you’d want to just stay wrapped up until your clothes were clean.”
“I guess that makes sense,” I try to slip them on but I’m fairly clumsy and don’t trust myself, “Do you mind-”
“No I don’t mind,” he lies on the bed and Buddy jumps up and he plays with James as I pull on these basketball shorts.
I sit back on the bed then lie down on the opposite end as they play, “Oh yeah! I should probably call my friend.”
  I sit up and so does he as he passes me his cellphone, “you remember the number right?”
“That’s the thing I don’t remember but if I call my phone then he might realize why I wasn’t able to reach him at least,” I shrug and dial my number quickly and the ring tone goes off three times then the voice mail box.
“Guess you’re not answering yourself,” James laughs and I roll my eyes before sighing and hanging up.
I lean back on the pillows and watch bud as he tries to play with me. It doesn’t work so he goes to lick my legs and James is quick to stop that, “Manners bud we don’t go kissing people who just got clean.” He pretended to shield me as the dog continued to try and play.
I had to giggle as he calm closer to ‘protect’ me, “Says the one who didn’t shower.”
“Ugh, well fine then I won’t-” I put a hand over his mouth and he smiled under it as he stared down at me.
“We should just watch television or something while we  wait for my clothes, then we head out and I’ll try to remember my way back to my friends place,” Iet go of his mouth and he covered my eyes before long he was kissing me again.
His mouth was warm and his teeth were brushed and his mouth tasted minty. I pushed him off, “I didn’t brush my teeth I’ll go do that.”
He rolled over and laughed, “I don’t think it really matters, considering I kissed you first when you were drunk.”
“How romantic we are,” I got up and went to the bathroom and he followed me.
I glared at him as my cheeks burned bright, “I’ll just get you a new toothbrush.” He smiled and held up his hands in surrender.
I brushed my teeth and he sat on the counter with his arms crossed the whole time. I took extra long brushing my teeth and tongue considering he was watching me. He just sat there smiling watching me and I never felt at peace with the witty grin that displayed itself on his face to me.
“I think that is a record for how long someone can go without kissing me,” he was smirking as I spit out all the toothpaste.
“oh please, save the dramatics I’ve gone years.” He seemed shocked by that and I felt weird for admitting it.
“So I was your first kiss like in years?” he was following into the living room as I sat on the couch and tried to take all the room. He just sat over my legs.
“Well let’s forget I said that,” I covered my face as a grown man looked down on me with a superior smile.]
“Okay I’ll try and contain my excitement of being the one guy to end your single streak,” he went to get off and sat on the floor waiting for a reaction or something.
“I wouldn’t be it just means I was probably single because no one wanted to stick around long enough. Apparently I’m good when I’m drunk at getting a guys attention,” I looked at him and crossed my arms.
“No that can’t be it you're lovely and a great person who’s innocent enough to get drunk and ask a stranger for headache meds. Also I looked it up, you can’t be allergic to the candy coating, so really you just wanted to kiss me. Not so innocent now that I think about it,” he wiggled his eyebrows and lay a hand across the back of the couch. Not touching me but close enough.

I took a moment to let the blushing feeling fade before responding with a quick playful punch to his ribs as I lay back on the pillow of the couch, "It wasn't like that, I am glad you decided to kiss me instead of spitting it out into your hand or something."

He curled up closer holding a hand to his side, "Yeah very nice of me wasn't it?"

"I was very lucky to have you come across my path," i didnt' want to think where i would be if he didn't show up.

"I think we were both kind of luck," his dog lay a head to my stomach as it growled. "We should eat."
