Chapter 10: Emeril

Sidney and I walk into the club and already I feel out of place. The lights are dim and the music is a little too loud. God I'm starting to think like my mother. We walk around a little trying to spot people we know. Finally I spot Jamie, Allie, and Amber dancing, while Brooke and Emma are sitting at a small table. I tap Sidney on the shoulder to get his attention.

"I'm gonna go over there and talk to Brooke and Emma, you comin?" I ask leaning into him so he can hear me.

"Yeah, but I'm going to get something to drink first, want anything?"he asks brushing his lips against my ear, causing butterflies to overtake my stomach. I shake my head no and walk over to the table.

"Hey how's it going, so far?"

"Okay, right now we're doing a pick up line contest. We're going to see what the worst pick-up line of the night is."

"Ha, sounds awesome. Glad you're having fun."

"What about you? I mean what do you think?"

"I feel so, I dunno, not myself. These clothes, this place, it's just not my cup of tea."

"I didn't think it would be. You never came to any dances or anything in high school, I was surprised you agreed to come tonight," Emma says.

I look around and spy Sidney waiting for his drink. He's looking contently at me and I can't help but grin back. he blushes slightly as he realizes he's been caught staring.

"So have you seen any of the guys?"I ask, tearing my eyes away from Sid.

"well I haven't seen Colby or Flower, since we got here, but Max has been hitting on all the pretty girls, Geno's over there," Brooke says pointing to the bar that Geno is leaning against whispering into some blonde's ear causing her to giggle. "And Jordan's dancing over there."

Suddenly I hear a male voice behind me,"Honey, your legs must be tired because you've been running through my mind all night."

I turn around to see a shorter man in his late 20s. He seems like the type who spends too much time in the gym and out tanning, I guess looking at his slightly orange skin.

"Ha! good one!" I say laughing out loud at his line.

"Well, I think we might have a winner," Brooke laughs behind me.

"Thanks, baby, so what do you say you and me show these people how to dance."

"I don't remember ordering anything cheesy," Emma says adding to Brooke's comment.

"Actually I'm kinda here with someone," I smile.

"Hey babe, who's your friend?"I hear the deep voice, that I've been waiting to hear, ask.

'right on time.' I think as Sidney slips his hands around my waist possessively and kisses my cheek.

"Hey. Apparently I've been, 'running though this guy's mind all night'," I say quoting the lame pickup line,"I'm sorry what was your name again?"

"Uh, yeah, I think, I see some one I know over there. If you'll excuse me," he coughs moving on to his next victim.

"Now that's what I call team work!" Brooke laughs.

"Yeah, we make a pretty good team," I say smiling up at Sidney.

"you can say that again." He says smiling before gently brushing his lips with mine.

Another guys starts to approach me, but Sidney stares him down and he quickly changes directions to Emma and Brooke.

"So ladies..." he begins.

"I think we could go now," I say to Sidney behind me.

"Okay, let's go." he says all to eagerly.

"Alright guys, we're leaving. Have fun with your contest, and tell me who wins." I say over my shoulder.

"So what do you want to do?" I ask as Sid pulls the car into the driveway.

"Um, I dunno, we could watch a movie."he suggests.

"Mm kay, but I'm going to go back to the house first, I need to get out of these clothes."

"I can take care of that," Sidney grins bending down to kiss my neck.

"I'm sure you could, but I won't be too long, besides I have to let Bran out real quick," I giggle.

"Fine. I'll go pick a movie from the ones we brought on the trip and see you in a little bit."

"Okie Dok."

I walk home and I feel absolutely disgusting. I take a quick shower to get rid of all the hair spray Allie sprayed on me before we left and get rid of the makeup. I blow dry my hair, I don't really need to bother straighting or anything, my hair is naturally straight, and I put on a little make up. I change into athletic shorts and a hoodie. Give me a brake, I've had all the 'beauty' I can handle for the day, I need to be comfortable. After letting Bran out I head back over to the guys vacation house, its going on 11:00.

I knock on the door but I don't wait for Sid to answer I just walk right in. I spy him in the kitchen frowning at the microwave, and then the scent of burnt popcorn hits me.
"Ah, yuck, what are you doing, making charcoal?" I ask.

"I think I put it in too long." he frowns. I pull the popcorn bag out of the microwave and peer inside, the popcorn isn't totally black, but it's bad enough that even Bran wouldn't eat it. I throw it in the trash outside so as not to stink up the whole house. I come back in the house to see Sidney unwrapping another bag of popcorn.
"Whoa hold on there Emeril, how bout we read the directions first," I say stopping him in case he makes the same mistake.

"Don't be a smart ass, I already did. It said 2 minutes," he replies popping it in the microwave with a frown.

"I'm sorry, I didn't mean to be so bossy," I say putting my arms around him and kissing his cheek.

He pulls me into a tight hug and plants a kiss in my hair, "It's okay. you smell good."

"Thanks, I needed a shower. All that make up and crap made me feel disgusting."

"I like what your wearing though, very sexy." He says checking me out in my athletic shorts and hoodie.

"Okay now who's being the smart ass?" I grin putting my hands on my hips.

"I'm sorry, but seriously I like how you look in this. Its you and you can tell your just a whole lot more comfortable, you don't need all that make up and stuff. You're beautiful without it."

"Your sweet," I grin at him," so what movie are we watching?"

"Umm, I thought we'd watch Casino Royal,"

"Ah, perfect! I love James Bond."

"Really?!" he asked popping the DVD and sitting down on the couch.

"Oh yeah, you know how most families watch A Christmas Story during Christmas, well my dad always has on the 007 days of Christmas."

"Ha, nothing says peace and love on earth than James Bond." he said laughing as he puts his arms around me pulling me close. I snuggle into him, feeling safe in his strong arms.

We watch the movie in silence, adding a few comments here and there. Just as the credits come on, I look up at Sidney and realize he was looking down at me as our eyes lock. He bends down until his lips are almost touching mine, I can feel his warm breath next to mine. I can see that lusty look in his eyes again, I now know exactly where this night is headed. He grins before bringing his mouth down to meet mine. Tongues tangle and before I know it or have time to think his hands come to the hem of my hoodie. His hands move across my stomach making me glad that I did those few extra sit ups this morning. Breaking the kiss for a moment he frees me from my hoodie throwing it in a pile on the floor revealing my black bra, in a matter of second his t-shirt lands on top, leaving me breathless at the sight of his gorgeous muscular chest. His kisses travel down my neck and on to my collar bone. Suddenly he lifts me off the couch effortlessly. I make a sound of surprise but it becomes muffled by another kiss. Soon he gently lays me on his unmade bed and I pull him down on top of me, his naked unbelievable chest on top of mine. My hands run over the muscles in his broad back as he kisses me. His hands reach to my back to find the clasp of my black bra and I moan arching my back. He pauses a moment.
"Are you sure about this?" he asks in a husky voice against my lips.
"Yes," I breath before his mouth is on mine again and the bra quietly in a heap on the floor.
