Hey loves, I got a wonderful prompt idea from octaviabrittany a while
back. Thanks for this idea girl! In this prompt, the Devil’s world is flipped
upside down. Instead of having a three year relationship with German, Ahsha has
been with Derek Roman for three years. German is a creepy guy that she met in
college but he recently got a job with the Devils.
This is the prompt I had trouble finishing yesterday. Thankfully, I was able to finish it with a little inspiration from another show. ENJOY!
The light from the sun, warmed Ahsha’s back as she laid in
between the plush pillows. Smells of
maple syrup, bacon and homemade biscuits filled the air. Ahsha smiled to
herself as she felt one side of the bed dip under Derek’s weight.
“Good morning,” she murmured, still basking in the night
before. After three years together, Derek finally asked for her hand in
Ahsha had met him in her sophomore year in college after
winning courtside seats to a Devils basketball game. After the game, she met
the star player and when he asked for her number she refused. Derek Roman
didn’t have the best reputation when it came to women and Ahsha wasn’t going to
be another notch on his belt. Five months later, they ran into each other again
at the Farmer’s Market. Derek loved
getting out and enjoying the beautiful city while also connecting with people. He
got lonely in his mansion without anyone to talk to besides his chef and the
occasional groupie he invited over. The second meeting between Ahsha and Derek resulted
in them building a friendship before dating a whole year later. After
graduating from college, she moved into an apartment and began her master’s
degree in Advertisement. They took their relationship slow and it seemed to
work best that way. Derek was irresistible to many but Ahsha played hard to get
with him for the longest. When she finally gave in it made Derek the happiest
man in the world.
“Morning beautiful,” Derek grinned, his voice still heavy
with sleep. “Sleep well?”
“I sure did,” Ahsha replied, moving in to capture his lips
in a tender kiss. “I’m starving.”
“I am too,” Derek whispered against her ear, his lips
trailing to her shoulder where he nipped at her skin.
Closing her eyes and leaning back against his chest, she began,
“About that…I was thinking we could hold off on sex until we get married.”
The mood was officially dead. Derek rested his chin on her
shoulder as he tried to hold back a laugh. “Really Ahsha? I know it’s almost
April 1st and all but that’s a bad joke.”
“I’m not joking babe. I want us to be strong emotionally and
on a mental level before we take this big step,” she explained, turning to face
“Um, I think after three years we’re pretty strong on all
levels,” Derek insisted, pulling at a strand of Ahsha’s hair. “We wouldn’t last
“I think we could if you really put your mind to it. Please
try…for me,” she begged, sticking out her bottom lip.
“Ugh, okay. You better be glad you’re cute,” Derek answered
with a slight chuckle. “Alright, we can give this a try I guess. I still don’t
think it’ll last but we’ll try.”
Ahsha laid across his chest and traced his abdomen as she
spoke. The large diamond on her finger glimmered in the light of the sun. “Thanks
for understanding. To keep our minds off sex maybe we can do other things, like
visit the museum, go to the zoo and take in some movies. There are so many
other ways we can bond without having sex.”
“Like I said, we can try but I guarantee we will fail
miserably,” Derek added, running his fingers through her hair. “I have practice
later and maybe we can take in a movie when I’m done.”
“Sounds like a plan. Now let’s go eat,” Ahsha explained,
sliding off the bed and grabbing her robe.
Straight out of college, Ahsha was hired on as the assistant
director of the Devil Girls dance team. She had interned with them for two
years before they decided to hire her on to help Olivia Vincent, the head
director. Although Ahsha would have enjoyed dancing on the team, she wasn’t
allowed to be a dancer while dating a player. Olivia rewarded Ahsha by allowing
her to be the head choreographer on top of her assistant director duties.
Ahsha’s desk was full of costume ideas, future choreography
plus themes and music. It was a complete mess but she found this was the only
way she could function. “Whoa that thing is glittering from all the way over
here. Congrats on the engagement,” Olivia beamed, entering the spacious office.
“I may have to ask Chase for a bigger ring to compete with yours.”
“Ha! Thanks Liv. It’s actually a little too big for my taste
but I’m getting used to it,” Ahsha replied, closing her laptop and resting her
chin on her fists. “What’s up?”
“We have a new guy that just started today that Oscar wants
everyone to meet. He’s downstairs in the Playground,” Olivia explained,
twirling her wedding ring around her small finger.
“Yeah sure. I can take an earlier lunch I suppose.”
The two women headed towards the elevator that would take
them down to the underground club. The Devil’s Playground was where all the
action took place and where most of the trouble occurred. A large crowd of
people were gathered in the middle of the room when Olivia and Ahsha entered
“Oh there you two are. German, these two ladies are the
master minds behind our dance team. They’re the reason the Devil Girls are
known worldwide. This is our new team physical therapist, German Vega,” Oscar
announced, introducing the two directors to their new fellow employee. Too bad
one of them already knew him…very well.
“I’m Olivia Vincent and this is-“
“Ahsha, wow you look-I wouldn’t have even noticed you,”
German expressed, his eyes widening as he took in his ex-girlfriend’s
appearance. “Nice to meet you Olivia.”
“Good you two already know each other,” Olivia added,
throwing an inquisitive look at her co-worker.
“Yeah, she’s an old friend,” German answered, his eyes still
Ahsha knew she had to say something to break the awkwardness
forming in the room. “Congrats on the new job.”
“Thanks. I’m happy I get to work with my favorite team. Such
a blessing,” German replied, smiling from ear to ear. Ahsha immediately caught
on to the double meaning.
“That’s good to hear. I’ll see you around.” She couldn’t get
out of the room fast enough. Having her ex-boyfriend back in her life was a
complete nightmare. They didn’t end on the best of terms and he had texted her
a month ago saying he could possibly be interviewing with the Devils. She never
told him that she was the assistant director of the Devil Girls because she
knew he would try even harder to get a job with the organization. Now that he
was actually inside the arena, she wanted to bash her head against the wall. German
would definitely be on her tail now since he was close to her. Why did she have
the worse luck?
“Hey baby,” the familiar voice called out. Her instant
headache began to subside as she turned around to face her fiancé. “Where you
headed off to with that frown on your face?”
“Back to my office,” she answered innocently. “I’m about to
take lunch, you wanna join me?”
“I would but I have a meeting in the next hour or so. We’ll
catch up later tonight,” Derek said, kissing her cheek.
As Ahsha cleared her lunch from her desk, she heard a light
knock at her door. “Come in.”
Recognizing the voice, she quickly turned around in her
seat. “What…what are you doing in here,” she asked, feeling as if her privacy
was being invaded. “Okay, I see we will have to set some boundaries. Just
because we work in the same building does not mean we need to visit with each
other. I would be perfectly fine if we didn’t even speak.”
“Don’t be like that Ahsh,” German pleaded, running his
fingers over the trophies on her shelf. “I can’t act like we don’t have history.
You’re going to act like we didn’t date for a year?”
Ahsha stood to her feet and leaned on her desk. “I don’t
give a damn what kind of history we have. That history went out the window when
you slept with my best friend. I have nothing to say to you German.”
“So that year in college meant nothing to you,” he pressed,
now sitting in the plush chair in front of her.
Narrowing her eyes until they were almost slits, Ahsha spoke
between her teeth, “No.”
German tried to hide the hurt but it was all in his eyes.
“Wow. Well I beg to differ. That year was the best year of my life.”
“That’s enough, I would like for you to leave my office
“You know I still love you and if you give me another chance
I coul-“German stopped midsentence once Ahsha slammed her left hand on her
desk. The large diamond jumped out at him like a large billboard screaming she
was no longer his. She had moved on to someone else while he still wanted to
fight for her. “You’re engaged.”
“Yes, and I’m very happy with him so you won’t be needing
that chance with me again. Goodbye German,” she spat, shooing him away as she
sat back down in her office chair. Crossing her legs, she gave German the most
sinister glare she could muster up.
“Who is he,” German questioned, the hurt clearly etched on
“That’s none of your business. Do I need to have security
remove you from my office? That wouldn’t be a good look on your first day.”
That last warning had German standing to his feet. “I’ll see
you around,” he threw at her as he turned his back to leave.
She had a feeling that wouldn’t be the last of German Vega.
Since Derek had a meeting that would last into the evening,
it was the perfect time to get extra work done at the office. Ahsha’s desk
needed serious organizing and now was the best time to do it. Plugging her iPod
into her ears, she began swaying to the sounds of Jill Scott’s Golden. Her life truly felt golden and
she couldn’t complain. Perfect job, man of her dreams, good health and family.
That’s all she could ask for and she had it. The lyrics and beat caused her to
move her hips as she began filing away loose papers. The song took her back to
cleaning up on Saturday mornings with her mother. Sloane was a huge Jill Scott
fan and they would listen to her albums as they did chores and worked in the
Ahsha got really into the song and began singing, not
realizing how loud she was until she turned to find her fiancé standing in the
doorway. A big smile spread across his face as Ahsha snatched the headphones
from her ears. “How long were you standing there,” Ahsha asked, smiling shyly.
“Long enough to hear your beautiful rendition of Jill
Scott,” he answered sarcastically. “The meeting ended early.”
“Oh, that’s good. Did you want to go out to eat tonight or
cook something up at home?”
“Eat out,” he winked as he closed the door behind him and
slowly approached his soon to be wife from behind.
“Derek,” she whined, sinking into his embrace.
“Ahsha,” he mocked, rocking them back and forth. “Everyone
is gone and I couldn’t help myself after watching you and those little moves.”
“We’re supposed to wait until our wedding night,” Ahsha
replied, wrapping her arms around his. “Plus, I wouldn’t dare do that in my
office. Someone could walk in on us.”
“I locked the door so problem solved,” he whispered in her
ear, laying a light kiss against her skin.
“Remember you promised that…” Ahsha began but her voice
trailed off as Derek’s lips grazed her neck, causing the familiar quiver
between her legs. Maybe they wouldn’t last until the wedding. Hell, they didn’t
even have a wedding date set yet. “Okay, maybe we can start after we set the
date.” As she turned in his arms, his hands traveled to her firm backside.
“Oh, but weren’t you the one saying we needed to connect on
an emotional level,” he teased, squeezing her bottom.
“I mean…we still can take in a movie and do other couple
things. Sex is just a perk,” Ahsha hinted, raising a brow.
A mischievous grin graved Derek’s face before he turned her
back around and walked her towards her desk. She grunted loudly as he bent her
over the glass surface. “Hey, I’m trying to organize this stuff,” she laughed
as papers went flying to the floor. A knock at the door interrupted their
little moment. “Who the hell is that? I thought you said everyone was gone.”
“Well I thought so,” Derek snapped, zipping up his pants.
“Who is it?”
“What the entire fuck,” Ahsha growled under her breath. She
turned into another woman when people messed up sexy time with her man.
“Who,” Derek asked, cracking the door.
“Oh I was looking for Ahsha,” German replied, peeking
between the crack of the door.
“Ahsha is busy, may I ask who you are?” It was obvious the two men hadn’t met yet from
“I’m German Vega, the new physical therapist for the
Devils,” he said.
“Okay and I’m Derek, her fiancé. Nice to meet you,” Derek hissed,
clearly getting irritated with the stranger on the other side of the door.
“Derek, I got this. Excuse me,” Ahsha cut in, pushing Derek
to the side. “German I thought I told you to stay away from my office.”
“I didn’t like how we ended on bad terms earlier. I came by
to apologize,” he expressed, still staring at Derek behind the door. Ahsha
rolled her eyes and stepped out into the hall, closing the door behind her.
“That must be your fiancé.”
“Yep and you’re not starting out on his good side right now.
Look, I will not have this discussion with you again. Do not come by my office.
Do not speak to me. Do not go around here acting like we’re the best of
friends. If you can’t respect that then I’ll have to turn you in for harassment
and I have no problem doing that,” Ahsha warned. “I’m being very nice to you
and I want to keep it that way instead of getting ugly.”
“It’s hard knowing you’re in the same building when I’m
still in love with you.”
“Well go work with another team. Your fault,” she snapped
turning on her heel.
Once she was back in the office, she spotted Derek standing
in front of the large windows. His jaw tensed as she shut the door. “Ex-boyfriend
“Yea, sadly. He just started here today.” It didn’t take a
rocket scientist to figure out that Derek was bothered by the fact that German
was working in the same building as his fiancé. He wouldn’t admit being annoyed
by it but Ahsha could tell without him saying a word. Hell, she’d be annoyed if
one of his exes became a Devil Girl. “You don’t have to worry about me running
off with him. Trust me, I’m not happy that he’s working here either. Sorry I
didn’t tell you earlier, I kinda forgot.”
“Naw, I’m not mad about your ex being here. I’m pissed that
he interrupted what I was getting started,” Derek chuckled, changing the
subject. “Why would I be worried about him when I know you’re coming home with
me? He stays in his place and I won’t bust in his face. That simple,” Derek
replied, pulling Ahsha into his chest.
“Here’s to hoping you don’t have to bust his face. I told
him to lay off and that I’m happy with someone else.”
“Mmmm, good. Now maybe we can pick up where we left off when
you get home,” Derek insisted, capturing her lips in soul luring kiss. Deepening
the kiss, Ahsha stood on her tip toes and wrapped her arms around her love’s
neck. Nope, they wouldn’t make it to their wedding day.
The fireplace was lit, the bottles were popped and Ahsha and
Derek were enjoying each other’s company in the mansion’s den. After a long day
at work, they both needed a moment of relaxation. As Derek massaged Ahsha’s
tired feet, she explained how she met German and why they didn’t last. Although
Derek told her it didn’t matter because he was in the past, she insisted that
she tell him anyway.
“We met at this party in college my freshman year and it
went from there. I thought he was all that and more until he slept with my best
friend. He was dating us both at the same damn time and it went right under my
nose. I dumped him and didn’t see him…until now. It sucks that we’re working
for the same organization,” she explained, frowning in disgust. “But I don’t want
you to think that him being around means I’ll let him back in. I love you and
German can’t change that.”
“I know,” he added, placing her foot back on the floor and
laying down next to her. “And I love you.” Ahsha’s sweet smile only warmed his
heart even more. “Which is why I’m going to honor your wishes about this no sex
thing. If that’s what you want to do then we’ll do it.”
“Awww babe, thanks for that. I know it’ll be rough for both
of us but I really want to give it a try. And it’s okay if we don’t make it
until then, at least we can say we tried.”
“So let’s say we accidently didn’t try tonight,” Derek
implored, leaning into her lips.
“Derrreek,” she sighed.
“Alight, alright, alright,” he laughed. “I’ll go get a board
4 months later
Hand rested upon her growing belly, Ahsha flipped through
her recent book of choreography. The Devil Girls were going to have a busy few
months with many appearances and traveling. Ahsha had her work cut out for her
with wedding planning, a baby on the way and Devil Girl events. Being pregnant
wasn’t her plan but like she thought, it was difficult to wait out on sex. They
lasted an entire week before Ahsha was the first to break. One day she
literally attacked Derek in the shower and two months later she found out she
“Ahsha,” came a voice from outside her door.
“Come in,” she replied, already knowing who it was. “What do
“Just wanted to drop these off to congratulate you on the
Devil Girl’s winning that award the other day. I’m sure all the credit goes to
you and your choreography,” German said, putting the bouquet of flowers on
“Thanks but I can’t accept these from you,” she replied,
pushing the vase back in his direction. “I’m not trying to be rude. I-me
accepting these from you will just have you thinking there’s something left of
us. I appreciate your congratulations though.”
“Please leave,” Ahsha pleaded, running her hand over her
stomach. “I can’t be under any extra stress right now.” German’s eyes widened
as they fell to the small bump hidden behind a large, flowy shirt.
“You’re pregnant,” he whispered in horror, his hands falling
to his side.
“Yes, I’m just starting to show so it’s hard to hide now.”
“Is there a problem here,” Derek asked, stepping into the
office with his glare on German. “Hey baby.”
“Hey,” Ahsha muttered, leaning back into Derek’s embrace as
he put a protective hand over her stomach. “I think you should leave German.”
With the happy couple standing before him, German picked up
the vase of flowers and walked out of his ex-girlfriend’s office. Hot tears
began to roll down his cheeks as the feeling of regret panged in his chest. He
had lost her for good.
Ahsha was living her life like it was golden, and it wasn’t
him making it shine.
Thanks for reading! I hope you all enjoyed!
