Karen kept me company most of the time while Danny was away on “business”. We hadn’t talked and I was starting to miss him. Theo was off to his dad’s house for the weekend so Karen suggested we go out.
I was tired of being locked up in the house, so I agreed. Alcohol was involved. Of course I agreed. We went bar hopping in River North. I wore a cute little dress and some of my fave booties. In all honesty, I really didn’t make much of an effort to get ready. I wanted to drink but I didn’t need to look like bombshell to do so. My hair was in it’s natural state of curls and my makeup minimal. Karen texted me when she was outside so I locked up and left. The pups were with my parents.
When we got to our first stop, I was being kind of a bad friend. You know those friends who act all distant when they go out? And someone has to keep repeating everything that was said? That was me. I could tell Karen was getting annoyed so I snapped back into reality and started being the fun Chris everyone loves.
We were at some bar I had never been to when my phone vibrated. I forgot I even had it. It was Danny.
I miss you.. Can we talk?
I’m out right now. Call you when I get home?
Sounds like a date. Have fun, be safe.
I smiled and was pretty content with the feeling that he missed me. Things were starting to get so rough between us that I questioned him about being with me every chance I got. Karen noticed I was smiling at my phone and she asked what I was being so cheesy about.
“Danny just texted me.” I said.
“And that’s a good thing, right?!”
I nodded in response and ordered another drink. Things started to get blurry somewhere between Danny texting me and taking shots with this group of guys who looked like they were in a frat. Gross.
One of the guys, I think his name was Angel (?), sat down next to me and starting talking about his job. He did something really similar to what I do which is really fucking rare. I really had no interest in anything he was saying though. My brain was too concerned with how my talk with Danny would go later on. It’s like he had read my mind because my phone vibrated with a text from him.
Are you having fun?
A little bit.
I bet you look beautiful. You always do. And I’m sure that I’ve forgotten to tell you that every chance I get but you are. You’re the most beautiful, terrifying woman I know.
I love you.
“He’s a lucky guy,” Angel said. “Making you smile the way you are? I would give anything to be able to make a woman smile like that.”
“You’ll find that person someday,” I smiled.
“Well,” he laughed. “Tell your boyfriend he better be careful. I might just do something scandalous like ask you to marry me, instead.”
I laughed at his flattery. But he continued.
“I’m serious. Marry me. I’ll take care of you. You won’t need to lift a finger for anything if you’re mine.”
Gross. I scoffed. You’re trying to marry someone you just met? And degrading her ability to be independent?
“Actually, I can take care of myself. But thanks. And in an effort to help you, maybe the girls you hang out with in college love the kind of game you spit but open your eyes. A real woman will never ask you to take care of her. If you can’t appreciate their independence and confidence, then you’re not worth a second of their time.”
I smiled sweetly at him and that was the end of our nice conversation. Karen probably heard me because then she dragged me out of the bar.
Bae, I just got proposed to at the bar.
I’m coming home.
Karen was saying something to me but I was too drunk to pay attention to my phone and her at the same time.
“Are you even listening to me?!” She demanded.
“Uhm, no. I’m sorry. I know I’ve been horrible company tonight.”
“No, you haven’t been. I thought this would help you take your mind off things but I guess I was wrong..”
“No!” I countered. “I am having fun! And I love you so much for making me come out!”
She half smiled and I sighed.
“Let’s go to my house, drink some tequila and dance our asses off!” I demanded.
We did that. And we drank so much fucking tequila that I don’t ever want it near me ever again.
Danny had gotten home sometime when the sun was starting to come out. Karen and I were sitting on my new rug, drinking mezcal (I don’t even know how it happened), singing to some Pepe Aguilar song when I heard the door open.
“BABYYYY!!” I squealed as I got up.
I didn’t even really get up, I think I like slid myself to him.
“Hi,” he said as he kissed my forehead. “What are you guys doing?”
“Singing.” Karen and I said in unison.
Danny kind of scuffed up my hair like I was his kid sister and I pouted.
“Come sit with us!” I demanded.
He obliged and he took a few shots with us but I could tell he was tired. Also, he looked so sexy that I really wanted to jump his bones but Karen was there and I knew he wouldn’t be into it.
Luckily, after a few more shots she started to doze off so I fixed up the guest room for her. She fell asleep right away. I was coming down the stairs and I almost made it when I missed a step and fell flat on my ass as I went down the 5 steps I missed.
Danny was laughing but he ran to me to make sure I was okay.
“Stop laughing,” I whined. But he didn’t. And I started laughing because I couldn’t remember the last time he laughed that hard. I was happy for his laughter even if it was cus I landed on my ass.
“God,” he said as he caught his breath. “You’re my favorite person.”
I blushed and buried my face in his chest. He tipped my chin up and kissed me. It was gentle and sweet. Then I bit his lip and he turned into an entirely different person.
The kiss deepened and his hands started traveling all over my body. I could tell he was getting irritated with the fabric of my dress that was serving as a barrier. He laid me back on the stairs and I was too drunk to care how uncomfortable it was. We kept kissing and I was growing impatient. I wanted him so bad. Like clockwork, I felt Danny’s hands make their way down to my thighs. With his mouth, he nipped my breasts, creating a small hole in the fabric of my dress. His hands rushed up to the breach of fabric and ripped the fabric apart. I gasped in surprise as his hands reached back and undid my bra. He took my breast in his mouth. Alternating in between suckling and biting. It was driving me crazy.
After a few more moments, I grew more impatient. I pushed Danny back until his back hit the wall. He took his shirt off as I unbuckled his pants and got on my knees. As I took him in my mouth, I watched his facial expression change. After a few moments, he pulled me up and turned me around so I was facing the wall. He bent me over and entered me slowly, savoring every single moment. As he built up a rhythm, I kept getting closer to orgasm. I was just about to when he pulled out and turned me around again. He carried me to the kitchen and sat me on the counter so I was facing him. Danny paused for a second to look at me.
“I love you, okay?” he said.
“Okay,” I smiled.
He entered me again and this time let me reach orgasm. I had to catch my breath for a few moments because my orgasm was so intense that my knees gave out at some point. This is probably what happens when you can’t have sex for a few weeks.
We went at it again for another few hours until we were both way too tired to continue. I think he tapped out first. I was ready to sit on his face. He grabbed our clothes and we ran upstairs. We showered and after, I saw him throw my dress in the trash.
“I really liked that dress…” I pouted.
“I really liked getting you out of that dress.”
I giggled. We got in bed and I snuggled up next to him. Before I dozed off, I kissed his chest.
“I promise I’m going to make you laugh every single day. Even if I have to fall down the stairs to do it.”
He laughed and kissed my forehead.
“I love you, Christina.”
I smiled and dozed off feeling like every tomorrow would get easier for us. But I was wrong..
