He walked into class and I turned my head away as soon as he looked at me. It was all rather dramatic, and I didn’t even mean it. It was a reflex. I was embarrassed.
Snippets of the other night and my behavior kept popping in my head at the most inopportune times—I thought back to the way he looked when I showed up at his door.
It was the same look he held now, walking into class. He took care of me, when I half expected him to shut the door in my face. He invited me in, he cleaned me up and put me to bed, and how did I repay him—by ignoring him.
Real mature, Carrington.
I watched him from this angle. I imagined how messy his hair would look if he wore it longer. He carried the ‘rolled out of bed’ sexy look well. It might be why I kept having naughty dreams about him, none as real and explicit as the one I’d had when I woke up next to him.
My face flushed as he turned to stare at me again. I looked away.
I needed to suck it up and talk to him. I figured I had until the end of class to figure out something to say. I would start by apologizing for not returning his calls. Thank him for taking care of me the other night and try and persuade him to give me another chance. He would give me another chance because he liked me. He had asked me out in the first place, right?
My anxious heartbeat slowed to a relaxed rhythm, and I stopped sweating.
I tried paying attention to the professor, but Calculus held no interest up against the saga I created in my own head.
Lost in one of my fantasies, I caught Josh in the corner of my eye, gathering his stuff and walking out the door.
Where is he going?
The entire class turned to watch Josh exit.
I gathered my stuff and bolted down the steps. As I exited the room, the professor held his hands out and asked, "Anyone else need to leave?"
I ran down the hall and out the door. I assumed he exited this way. A desperate squeal escaped my lips, but it morphed into a squeal of excitement. I spotted him as he walked down the path to the student union.
I took off running but began slowing down halfway.
What am I going to say?
I caught up and fell in step two feet behind him. I reached out and grabbed his shirtsleeve and the book in his arm fell with a thud.
"What the fuck?" he said as he turned around. His expression softened, but then it got all hard and stern.
His eyes darted around, and he cleared his throat.
I fought the urge to bolt.
"What?" he yelled. Students stopped and stared.
He bent down to grab his book. I needed to figure out something; in a few seconds, he would stand up and walk away. I needed to speak up, or he would walk away forever.
My mind went blank.
He stood back up.
Standing in front of me, he tilted his head to the side and crinkled his nose. As I still didn’t say anything, he shook his head and turned to walk away.
"For someone who wants to be my boyfriend, you're not acting like it,” I said.
He turned back to face me. Confusion and frustration spread across his face. I’d said the wrong thing. I dropped my head and turned. When he dropped his books. The sound made me jump, but not as much as when he reached out and wrapped his hands around my biceps. My instincts were to pull away from the sudden contact, but it only made him increase his grip. My stomach fluttered as I searched my brain trying to find something to say that didn't sound stupid or pathetic or desperate.
He remained silent and pulled me close. I leaned toward him while my mind screamed, No, don’t do it, run away. I shouldn’t be doing this, not out of fear of him, but out of fear of losing control.
My breath increased and my heart was pounding out of my chest. A small part of my brain registered the pain from how tight he held my arms, but another part of my brain overrode the pain and my heart rate spiked with the realization.
Oh, shit. He's going to kiss me.
And, he did. His lips landed on mine, and it made my head spin. I was thankful for the grip on my arms, because I would have otherwise melted into the ground. His firm hands were a direct contradiction to his soft lips. I felt him pulling away and I followed, seeking more contact, but his grip flexed as if warning me to stop. I didn’t have a second to think because his lips were back on mine, harder this time. He angled his head to the left, and he slid his tongue between my open lips. As soon as our tongues touched, he withdrew, and I sought it out. His grip on my arms tightened, but as my triceps began to shake, he loosened his grip. He let go and wrapped one arm around my waist. His other hand touched my chin to tilt it to the ideal angle in order for him to kiss me deeper. He directed this epic moment and I followed his cues. He paused and allowed air to pass between our moist lips, but my lips weren’t done.
He opened his mouth and my tongue found his as I lifted my arms and wrapped them around his neck. I pulled him closer, and he wrapped his arms around me and held me tight.
He no longer seemed in control of the situation. He reacted to my every move. I was in control.
God, it felt good.
Hello friends! I’m happy to be part of Apryl Baker’s amazing Holiday Blogfest! I don’t know about you, but I simply adore the Holidays! Everything from the stockings hung to the ten pounds I swear I won’t gain. (Guess homemade fudge doesn’t agree with that assumption).
I’d like to start my post with a Holiday Quiz! All of us have our favorite Christmas movies we like to curl up and watch (while eating that homemade fudge, right?). Even though none of us care to admit to the amount of Hallmark movies we’ve binged watched, I thought it’d be fun to see which movie fits you and your family’s holidays!
Hope you enjoyed the quiz!
One thing I’ve always loved about the Holidays, is the amount of guardian angel stories that pop up. In my series, The Watchers of Men, guardian angels play a huge part in Micah and Eden’s chances against the demons that surround them.

Mother of three by day, story spinner by night, I've had a love for writing my entire life. Other passions include reading, people watching (not the creepy kind mind you), and finding the answer to all the 'what if' questions out there in the Universe! Fascinated by myths and legends, my stories tend to veer into the paranormal, with a splash of romance, action, and at times, suspense and horror. Since my first book was published in the fall of 2013, I’ve enjoyed connecting with fans and readers from all over the world! With every novel I write, I hope to entertain, captivate, and inspire my readers!
Damian’s Christmas List
1. Foster & Aideen – Lightsaber? Yes, definitely. And so much fudge.
2. Sam – a solemn promise not to make her punch herself using my necromancy. For a year. Maybe six months. Eh, a week.
3. Zola – Ribbon candy. Or that awful horehound stuff.
4. Dad & Mom – New welcome mat. Like Carter had with the fangs, but with vampire fangs.
5. Cara – Pfff, whiskey.
6. Frank – Fire extinguisher for his jerky.
7. Edgar – Sunglasses, hahaha. Maybe not. Might kill me.
8. Old Man – A sense of humor. Will definitely kill me.
9. Dell – 1 pound peanut butter cup. Better make it two.
10. Vicky – Stuffed panda.
11. Nixie – It needs to be good, but I’m done thinking right now. What’s next?
Chimichangas. I should finish the list, but chimichangas.
