There he stood, black hair falling down, cloak tied around his shoulders, and those eyes watching me like full-moons. He smiled at my expression and tightened his grip on my ankle.
What the hell? Are you stalking me now?
Another smile. No.
Then what do you want?
Im not leaving without my kiss. He was dead serious.
Despite how suddenly freaked out I was, my heart fluttered in my chest. I never said Id give you a kiss. Get out!
No, you never did say that, but I dont care. If I have to take one, I will, but Im not leaving until I get one.
I kicked at him, trying to make him let go of my ankle. If I didnt get away this guy was going to rape me or something, no matter how hot he was. Get off! Let go!
He swooped down and put an arm around my waist. Still with one arm, he lifted me off the bed and crushed me into his body. Before I could say anything his lips were on mine. I struggled against him but it didnt make any difference. And then I relaxed and kissed him back. I cant say what made me do it.
His lips were so soft and there was something seductively sweet about the way he gently kissed me, no pressure or anything. That was until he pushed his tongue into my mouth. I knew I should have pushed him away and yelled at him because that was a lot more than just a kiss, but his taste had already hit me. I grabbed his neck and pulled him closer, wanting more.
Thats when he pulled away, snickering. Well, Valerie, he released me and started fumbling with the strings to his cloak. My heart sped up. He was taking it off! But instead of dropping it onto the floor he whirled it up in the air. It went over my head and he brought it around my shoulders. His nimble fingers quickly tied a knot below my chin. That was fun, but I do have to go. Ill be back for this, by the way. Then he pecked my lips and was out the door before I had even caught my breath.
I stood there caught between oh wow and he better not come back. Hed left me breathless, but I was still pissed at him. Just because he could manhandle me doesnt mean he should. Yet, part of me liked it.
I looked down at the cloak. It was a lot nicer up close. I thought it was just a thin flimsy little thing, but it must have been designer or something. It was heavy and deep black velvet that could probably keep you warm in any weather. The inside was lined with midnight blue satin.
I really hoped he didnt plan on getting this back. I wasnt sure if I would be able to give it back now that I knew how nice it was.
But why did he have such an expensive cape for a costume? Im pretty sure he was trying to be Count Dracula, but most people just bought those little plastic capes. This thing was beautiful. I sat on the edge of the bed and started playing with the corner of it. It was so soft.
After about twenty minutes of day dreaming, I decided I ought to go down and enjoy my birthday party. Although, I was pretty sure the most exciting part of the night was over.
I trudged down the stairs and through the house. I couldnt help but notice how empty the place seemed without him now. Him because I still didnt know his freaking name! How could I not know his name? I had just practically made-out with the guy and I didnt even know his name. Did that make me a slut? No! It most certainly did not!
So, howd it go? Sarah said as I came down the porch steps. She had a smile plastered on her face. Did he find you?
I stared at her. You. Are in trouble. What the heck did you say to him?
She looked away guiltily, but she was still smiling. I didnt say anything, she said innocently. Only Sarah could look guilty, act innocently and get away with it the way she did. He came inside and did whatever he did all on his own. I just gave him permission to go in the house.
She pouted when I didnt say anything else. Then she smiled and tugged on the cloak. It had to have gone good. I mean, he let you keep this. Wow, this thing is nice!
I was bursting to tell her. A girl can only stay mad for so long when shes dying to tell her girlfriend all about some guy
its just the way things are. Yeah, and he said hes going to come back to get it!
Sarah bobbed up and down. Thats definitely a good thing.
