So if you want to see a bunch of awesome Poe Party people in another project together, please consider pledging.

anonymous asked:

Was there any female writer in Shakespeare's England that you know of?

There were indeed, though fewer than men. Here’s a list of the notable ones that goes from a little before Shakespeare’s time to a little after:

  • Marguerite de Navarre, 1492-1549 (French writer of poems and plays, her works were translated into English in her time)
  • Mary Queen of Scots, 1542-1587 (wrote poems)
  • Elizabeth I, 1533-1603 (also wrote poems)
  • Isabella Whitney, c.1540s-? (secular poet. Possibly the first professional female poet in England)
  • Mary Sidney, 1561-1621 (sister of Philip Sidney, respected poet and writer of closet dramas - which are grander things than they sound like)
  • Aemilia Lanyer, 1569-1645 (poet. The section on Eve in her Salve Deus Rex Judaeorum is often regarded as one of the earliest ‘feminist’ works in British literature)
  • Elizabeth Cary, 1585-1639 (poet, playwright and translator. Likely the first English woman to write a public play)
  • Anne Clifford, 1590-1676 (writer, mainly in the form of letters and diaries. A patron of the arts and very highly regarded by John Donne)
  • Mary Wroth, c.1587-c.1653 (niece of Philip Sidney. Poet, closet dramatist and writer of prose romance
  • Lucy Hutchinson, 1620-1681 (poet, translator and biographer. Her Order and Disorder is a highly religious poetic rendition of the bible which offers rich comparisons to Milton’s Paradise Lost)
  • Margaret Cavendish, 1623-1673 (philosopher, poet, and writer ofThe Blazing World, one of the earliest science fiction pieces)
  • Katherine Philips, 1632-1664 (poet, translator and political writer. Her depictions of female friendship are often regarded as lesbianic)
  • Aphra Behn, c.1640-1689 (playwright, poet, spy, political writer, translator and fiction writer. Probably the first professional female playwright. An extremely erotic and homoerotic poet who wrote a novella with a black slave protagonist. Basically too interesting to be described in parentheses… Which is probably why Virginia Woolf mentions her in A Room of One’s Own. You can see why I stretched to Restoration literature just to include her.)
Music Series: I Will Always Love You by Dolly Parton (& cover by Whitney Houston)

Trying to do some music imagine requests this weekend. My mind just hasn’t been functioning well this week, so please forgive me for being quiet. Thank you to this Anon and all of the rest who have placed Music Series requests, and waited so patiently for me to consider them. Although I still can’t fulfill every single one of them, my goal is to get through my current queue, so I hope you enjoy what I bring to the table.

This is “I Will Always Love You” by Dolly Parton. I’ve include a link for the Whitney Houston version too because it is beautiful. I remember watching an interview with Dolly a few months ago on a show that I like that interviews songwriters, and what she had to say about this song was quite interesting. You can find the song on Spotify at this LINK. xo

Ernest Hemingway & alcohol: Chapter 3

Truth or Dare?

Harry’s P.O.V.

“We should see if the next girls want to play truth or dare,” Niall suggested leaning on the couch waiting for the next group of Meet and Greet girls to show up.
“Yea I could go for a good round of Truth or Dare, it’s boring playing with you mates, cause I already know all the answers,” Louis said and Zayn nodded, agreeing with him completely.

“Let’s ask, it wouldn’t hurt to ask, they are the last group after all,” Liam suggested and we all starred at him with our mouths hanging open, Liam actually agreeing to a round of Truth or Dare with a group of girls we didn’t even know.

“Hey guys so there is only three girls in this next group and then we’re done,” Paul said opening the door for three girls to walk inside, one in particular catching my eye. I stood up with the others and gave each one a hug, spending a little extra time on the last girl.

“I’m Harry,” I said sticking my hand out for her to shake and she blushed an adorable pink color as she took my hand in hers.

“Y/N,” she said and I shook her hand, starring deep into her gorgeous eyes, only looking away from her stare when Paul shoved us both towards the others for the photos. We took some serious ones and then some silly ones and then Paul was telling us we had a half hour.

“Hey Paul can we have like maybe a couple hours?” Niall asked and Paul looked confused. Niall got up and walked over to Paul and whispered something to him, Paul rolled his eyes and then nodded, leaving the room and shutting the door, in which Niall locked it.

“So we were wondering if you girls wanted to play some Truth or Dare?” Louis asked and the other two girls nodded quickly, looking like they’d play anything with us, and Y/N looked a little afraid but nodded as well, taking a seat next to me as the others sat down as well.

“I’ll go first,” Niall said happily as he bounced in his seat and he looked around at all of us.

“Liam truth or dare?” he asked.

“Truth,” Liam said and me and the boys started laughing, already knowing he’d chose truth and that, that was probably what he’d chose for the rest of the night.

“Ok, ok,” Niall said shushing us, “When’s the last time you wanked?”

“Oh come one Ni, that’s not fair you know Cheryl and I just broke up,” Liam whined and I seriously thought Niall and Louis were going to pee themselves they were laughing and high fiving.

“Come on Li, answer the question,” I said to get the game moving and he sighed, his face turning a little red as the girls giggled.

“Two nights ago,” he said looking down into his lap and Niall and Louis laughed even harder, as the girls faces turned the same shade as Liam’s.

“Ok, you two cut it out, Zayn truth or dare?” Liam asked.

“Truth,” Zayn said.

“Have you ever had a wet dream?” Liam asked and I was even surprised he came up with such a good question.

“Yes,” Zayn said with no embarrassment.

“When?” Louis asked.

“Nope that’s another question,” Zayn said with a smirk and Louis frowned.

“Truth or dare Ashley?” Zayn asked the girl sitting next to him.

“Dare,” she said bravely.

“I dare you to take off your shirt and play the next three rounds in just your bra,” he said and she smirked as she raised her shirt over her head, all the guys starring at her as she sat there in just her bra, Liam and Niall even licking their lips looking at her, I however couldn’t keep my eyes off of the fully clothed Katlyn sitting next to me.

“Truth or dare Whitney?” Ashley asked the other girl.

“Truth,” she said quietly.

“Who here would you most want to kiss?” Ashley asked.

“Um probably Niall,” she said and Niall winked at her making her blush bright red.

“Truth or dare Louis?” Whitney asked.

“Dare,” Louis said.

“I dare you to strip completely naked and run around the room six times,” she said with an evil glint in her eye and Louis chuckled as he stood, dropped all of his clothes and ran around the room, willy flying in the wind as he went. He came back and threw his clothes on and sat back down with a triumphant smile.

“Truth or dare Y/N?” he asked and I felt her stiffen next to me.

“Truth,” she said.

“Who would you fuck in this room?” he asked and she turned red before even answering, my attention now seriously perked.

“Harry,” I heard her say under her breath and I sat up proudly.

“Who I couldn’t hear you?” Louis asked obnoxiously and I looked over to see her getting redder.

“She said me,” I said and she shot me a thank you look out of the corner of her eye.

“Truth or dare?” she turned and asked Niall.

“Dare,” he said smiling cockily.

“I dare you to kiss Liam,” she said and Niall’s smile totally left his face, making Zayn, Louis and I crack up. He quickly leaned across the circle and pecked Liam on the lips, sitting back with a disgusted face and making the girls giggle.

“Ok, truth or dare Harry?” he asked glaring at me as I sat there laughing hysterically at him kissing Liam.

“Dare,” I choked out through my laughter.

“Kiss Y/n, a make out for at least a minute,” he said with a snideness to his voice and not only did I feel her stiffen but I stiffened this time too, not only did I want to kiss her I wanted to do other things with her but I didn’t want to do it under this circumstance, and I didn’t want it to be awkward.

“Ni…” I started to say quietly but he pointed over my shoulder and I turned and sighed, looking Y/N in the eyes.

“You ok with this?” I asked and she nodded, a small smile tugging at her lips and for a moment I thought maybe she wanted it as much as I did. I nodded and leaned forward confidently, placing my hand on the side of her face, reaching around to the back of her neck I pulled her closer with no resistance. I placed my lips on hers and felt a strange fire spreading inside me. Making me feel warm, and pleased. I moved my lips and found that her lips moved back against mine almost perfectly, making this much easier. I slid my tongue out experimentally and licked a strip across her bottom lip, feeling her lips part. I slid my tongue inside, no longer thinking about the dare but only her. Her hands clung to the front of me shit and pulled me even closer, almost making us tip over and fall backwards onto the carpet. I roamed her mouth with my tongue, letting a small and quiet moan escape my lips when her tongue bumped against mine, now rubbing and dancing in the most pleasing way. I grabbed harder at the back of her head ready to deepen the kiss and make something more happen, but I was roughly jerked back into reality.

“Time!” Liam yelled and Niall pulled on the back of my shirt, making me groan at him and glare at Liam. The other two girls chuckled and I looked over at Katlyn who was smiling back at me, her confidence boosted immensely.

“Truth or dare Lou?” I asked, totally not into the game anymore, unless there were more snogging sessions in the future.

“Dare,” Louis bounced happily.

“I dare you to call the last person you were on the phone with and ask them to help you with a boner issue,” I said and Louis eyes went wide before he smiled and started going to his contacts. I was too distracted by the heat radiating off of Y/n’s body to even notice Louis embarrassing phone call and I was watching her watch me out of the corner of her eye. I pulled my phone out and text Niall.

To: Niall
Can you give me another dare like the last one with Y/n, I need more with her, I have a slight issue
-H

I watched Niall receive the text and he glanced over with a curious face till he saw the rising tent in my jeans and he blushed and nodded, putting his phone away so it didn’t look obvious, i tuned back into the game right as Louis was finishing his phone call, the others laughing hysterically. I glanced over a couple rounds later and noticed Niall texting and then like magic, Louis, Liam and Zayn’s phones all went off at the same time, I wondered what he was sending them that he didn’t send me when someone said my name.

“Truth or dare Harry?” Zayn asked with a wink and I raised my eyebrows confused.

“Dare,” I said a bit skeptically.

“I dare you to do seven minutes in heaven with Y/n,” he said and my mouth dropped open, had Niall asked them all to give me another dare with Katlyn? I gulped now afraid that she wasn’t as down with this as I thought she was but when I looked over she smiled and nodded shortly. I stood up and walked towards the closet in the dressing room with her, stepping inside to cheering from the others. I rolled my eyes and turned on the light, noticing the closet empty and quite large for a dressing room closet.

“Sorry about them,” I said and she chuckled.

“It’s fine, but your wasting time,” she said in her adorable voice and I leaned forward, pressing my lips to her again and roaming my hands up and down her body, letting her tongue slid into my mouth this time and explore a few seconds before I took over and fought her for dominance, letting my tongue dance against hers and her soft moans at the way my hands were messaging between her legs fill my mouth. I grabbed the hem of her shirt and pulled it over her body, lust taking over.

“I think we’re going to need longer than seven minutes,” I moaned as she kissed and sucked at my neck and I felt her nod, our pants filling the small closet with constant noise. I starred down at her body as I removed her bra and I felt my now hard dick twitching and aching to be let out of my jeans. She pulled my shirt over my head and reconnected her lips to mine, kissing deeply and passionately. I felt her hands fumbling with the button on my jeans and then they were sliding to the floor and I sighed as my cock was let loose from some of its confines. She moaned seeing the tent in my boxers and I removed her shorts and rubbed circles over her underwear between her legs, loving the way she moaned into the closet like she didn’t care who was just outside the door. There was a light tap on the door and we both groaned, me messaging her clit through her clothes and her palming at my aching erection.

“We quit, finish the game without us,” I yelled and I heard some grumbling from the other side of the door.

“Really? you couldn’t just get a quick blow job? we’re right out here for crying out loud,” Louis yelled back and I smirked and moaned as she palmed me exceptionally hard.

“Take a walk,” I yelled back my voice going an octave higher as I felt her pull down my boxers and lick the head of my dick.

“This was not the kind of dare I was talking about,” Louis said annoyed and I chuckled and let out an exceptionally loud and over exaggerated moan to get him away from the door, making Katlyn chuckle with her mouth on my dick and the vibration ended up causing a real moan anyways.

“Shit, Y/N your really good at that,” I moaned and I watched her smile with her lips stretched around my throbbing member. She continued sucking me off until the pleasure became too much as I felt my orgasm building and fast.

“God baby, I’m getting close,” I moaned and she pulled off with a pop, wiping her mouth with the back of her hand and standing up to kiss my lips again, this time more fierce and hungry. I moved from her lips and slid down onto the floor, removing her underwear and leaning forward and kissing her thighs a few times before I let my tongue slid in between her folds, making her buck forward and grab onto the coat rack in the corner.

“Yes, right there Harry,” she moaned as I thrust two fingers inside her and continued to lick around her clit, licking over it every now and then. She was thrusting her hips forward onto my face after a few minutes of thrusting and licking.

“God yes,” she moaned loudly, rolling her head back and practically screaming my name.

“Stop, I’m gonna cum,” she moaned and I removed my fingers and stopped licking, grabbing a condom out of my jeans I pumped it on and then pulled her down onto the floor with me, letting her lay down in the small space and placing myself between her legs.

“Want me to fuck you?” I asked as I ran my thumb in circles over her clit and she nodded, biting down on her bottom lip deliciously. I leaned down and sucked her bottom lip into my mouth and kissed her hard, as I started to slid the tip of my dick inside her. She gripped onto my shoulders and dug her nails in as I stretched her wide.

“God Harry your so big,” she moaned and I started to pull out, letting my dick drag inside her tight heat and then slammed back in, hitting her fleshy sweet spot at the back of her pussy.

“Harry yes,” she screamed and I continued hitting the same spot for a few minutes before I slowed my thrusts, feeling the tightening way too soon.

“Jesus Y/N your so fucking tight,” I moaned kissing her neck and leaving purple marks where ever my mouth landed. She was a moaning and squirming mess underneath me, turning me on more and more.

“Fuck me harder Harry,” she moaned and I grabbed her hips and thrust into her hard and quick, hitting that same spot again and making her head and eyes roll back.

“That feels so good,” I moaned, ramming into her tight pussy over and over again making her scream my name and make sounds I had never even heard before.

“Your dick’s so big,” she moaned pulling my mouth down to hers and kissing me hard a few times before letting go to scream out again.

“I’m getting close Harry,” she moaned and I rammed into her harder, feeling my own orgasm building quickly.

“Shit Y/N me too,” I moaned.

“Cum for me Harry,” she moaned. I felt my dick fattening inside her and then I was releasing my white hot ribbons into the condom inside her, feeling her walls clenching around me I continued thrusting letting her ride out her high with me.

“I’m cumming,” I moaned and she rolled her head back and screamed, echoing throughout the closet.

“Shit me too, God Harry yes, I’m cumming,” she screamed and I pulled out once she was done, removing the condom and standing pulling her to her feet I kissed her hard before we both dressed and stepped slowly out of the closet to an empty room. I found my phone lying on the floor and opened it.

Went for a walk, felt like we were living a porno, hope you had fun ;)

No more ace to play…

The stench wafting from the hotel’s kitchen stunk worse than the goddamn town dump, and Gus McCready swallowed back her gag reflex. She lifted the bandana tied loosely around her neck and used it to covered her nose and mouth as she watched Waverly speak with the hotel’s manager. Waverly had cleaned herself up earlier in the lobby bathroom, washing away any signs that would indicate she had been crying, but she still looked wan and distracted. Whitney stood nearby with Jesse, who had his arm wrapped around her waist. Although Whitney nodded along to the conversation, her eyes kept drifting back to Waverly, obviously more concerned with her mom’s well-being than the spoiled dinner. It’s why Gus loved the kid so damn much.

anonymous asked:

It’s 3 am and you’re the only person in the bar that knew all the lyrics to my favorite song and now we’re doing bad karaoke au for Kent/Bitty? <3

In a karaoke bar that had, until an hour ago, been full of dudebros – including his coworkers – someone was singing Beyonce. The place was almost closing, Bitty hadn’t heard anyone at the mic for an hour, and now some guy was doing Formation.

Bitty gripped his glass. He was not going to turn and look. Wasn’t gonna do it. He was not –

Oh, fuck. Now he was doing Britney. 

Turning in his chair, Bitty braced himself with one arm on the back of his chair. The singer was blond and freckled and, judging by the stretch of his shirt across his shoulders, hot as hell when naked. Jesus.

It didn’t look like anyone was with him. When his next song choice was Mariah, it sealed the deal – Bitty got out of his seat, still carrying his LIT. The closer he got, the hotter the guy was.

“Hey,” he said. “Wanna do a duet?”

The guy’s crooked grin was way too charming for Bitty’s blood alcohol level. “How do you feel about Whitney?” he asked.

“Oh, God,” Bitty said. He was so fucked.

CEO!Calum had never been one to sleep around, he always kept his demeanor professional around the office because he knew he couldn’t do what he did and have time for love. Of course he had random hookups across the country when he was visiting new places on business, but never someone he would have to see again. As soon as you made your arrival to the office as a newly hired consultant, he knew he was screwed. There was no way he could avoid you, you had to meet with him to give him input for Christ’s sake. So he tried, he tried so hard to keep his harsh exterior around you but you made it next to impossible. Your warm smile and soothing voice melted his heart and 5 short months later, he asked you out for the first time. He needed someone like you, you helped him let loose, you had him acting like a teenager again. Soon the meetings between the two of ran longer as pages of possible plans were scattered across the floor, your legs wrapped around his waist as he fucked you against his oak wood desk. Your nails scratching down his back trying to pull him closer as you felt him deep inside of you. He would whisper dirty things against the shell of your ear before reaching down to rub your clit, pushing you closer to your orgasm. Calum found he was a bit of an exhibitionist, getting off on the fact that your loud moans were undoubtedly heard throughout the building. It challenged him to thrust in to you harder, to do everything in his power to get you to scream louder. And after the two of you had reached your climaxes, he would stay inside of you just a moment longer as he looked down at you, brushing the hair off of your sweaty forehead, before gently kissing it and telling you he loved you. Refusing to ever let you walk out of his office alone, he always insisted on accompanying you, he knew your colleagues would give you dirty looks if you walked out alone but never with him at your side. And of course as soon as he opened his doors and emerged next to you, everyone adjusted their posture and focused back on their work as if they hadn’t heard a thing at all. Which only made Calum smirk as he held his elbow out to you, offering you to link your arm with his before heading to take his girl out to lunch.

Matchmaker

Jason x Sofia

A/N:I have been on an idea overload! Not just with this fic, but I’ve got a bunch of stuff planned 😭 I missed writing about Jason and had a chance to finally finish up this chapter! Sorry for the wait but I hope you like it! X enjoy ** PS excuse any off mistakes and weird formatting, I am writing these on my phone and I’m not used to it 😂

Chapter 3 || Masterlist 

(gif by @jeffrey-daddy-morgan)

After finishing work later than anticipated, Whitney and I both decided to skip out on drinks and have dinner instead. We finally made it to our favorite cafe, and the minute the waitress walked off with our order, Whitney pounced on me with her questions. 

“How did it go yesterday with the handsome ex?” 

“It went well. He has a case that might put us both in close contact with one another, so that’s why he wanted to see me” I answered her, taking a sip of my water. “I think he wanted to get the awkward run-in out of the way” 

“How did Alex react when you told him?” 

I breathed out a heavy sigh, “He seemed fine…I think” 

Whitney arched her brow at my direction, giving me that ‘uh-huh-I’m-sure-he’s-fine-look’.

“I can’t tell, Whit! He’s always so calm about everything, it’s difficult to really know” 

“It’s cause he’s a businessman. He has to learn to maintain a poker face” She answered, leaning forward on the table and giving me a knowing smile. “Soo, how did you and Jason meet?”  

I couldn’t help but blush thinking about the beginning. “Before I met Jason, my life was oddly perfect. I graduated university, and had been offered a job at this gallery that I’ve been working part time at, I had an amazing boyfriend…” 

“Until the Universe decided to throw you a curve ball?” 

I laughed, “Yeah, pretty much. My ex-boyfriend cheated on me with my ex-best friend”

It was the first time I had ever felt truly betrayed by people that I trusted the most, walking into his room that morning seeing their naked bodies writhing against one another crushed me. 

“…Sasha, my ex boss, she and I had grown incredibly close. She was like a mother figure to me. She constantly worried because after that incident I stayed single for about two years…” I continued, pausing for a moment as the waitress brought over our salads. 

“Wow, two years?!”

“Look, my ex was my first real anything, and the fact that he cheated with my best friend gave me some serious trust issues" I rolled my eyes, “I was naive. Anyway, it seemed that it was Sasha’s world to fall apart next. Her ex-wife and her were going through a bad phase in their marriage, and she was certain she was cheating on her…” 

“So she hires the sexy Sherlock Holmes” Whitney continued, grazing her tongue over her teeth.

“She would talk my ear off about how “handsome and single” her investigator is..“

I remembered how often Sasha lectured me about the situation, begging me to give Jason a chance and insisting that she could set us up. “And then one night…” 

- Three Years Ago  

Trying to put the words together to describe Sasha’s latest exhibit has proven to be difficult. I’m finding myself staring at the clock instead of writing out these these cards. 

Knock, knock, knock…

Who could that possibly be at 8:00 p.m.? 

I made my way out of the office, and to the entrance of the gallery where I noticed a man standing behind the glass door. 

“Can I help you?”. 

“Uhh..yeah, is Sasha here?” 

“Oh no, the gallery is actually closed. Sasha went home hours ago” 

“Ahhh…” He flashed me a perfect smile, nodding his head. “Then you must be the “very pretty, very single” assistant” He responded. 

He was tall, taller than most men I knew. He had ruffled dark hair that matched his salt and peppered beard. He’s definitely older than I expected him to be, but that crooked grin and those beautiful olive brown eyes hiding behind those dark framed glasses emphasized his handsome features.

Of course Sasha would try and play matchmaker. “It looks like she succeeded in getting us to meet” I jokingly answered. “I’m Sofia” I extended my arm out to shake his hand. 

“Jason” he responded with that rich, deep voice.

Okay, maybe she wasn’t wrong about him being attractive.

“I’m sorry you had to come all this way down. I’m actually in the middle of working…”

He looked at his watch, “I’ve got some time to kill. Since I’m already here, would you want some company? I wouldn’t want to disappoint Sasha by ignoring the chance to spend time with a gorgeous woman"

“Is that how she marketed me?” I responded with a laugh.

Jason took off his glasses, tilting his head sheepishly before responding, “I might have added a few adjectives here and there”

I felt my cheeks burn from his subtle compliment. I took a step aside, feeling my heart slowly race. “Come on in”

- Present  - 

“I think that’s the cutest thing a boss has ever done for their employee” 

“Sasha was never really a boss. She was very much an artist, and love and romance were some of her biggest beliefs….she thought life was unfulfilling without it” 

“So, after he came in You two just spent the rest of the night together?” 

“Yeah, he kept me company and we talked. I ended up not finishing any of my work and before I knew it he had asked me out for drinks, and everything kind of picked up from that point"

“Did you love him?” Whitney quietly asked, moving her salad around with her fork. 

“Yeah, I did…” 

“Okay, let’s move onto the most important part” She quickly changed the subject. “How was the sex?” 

“You’re terrible” 

“Hey, I wouldn’t be your friend if I didn’t ask the inappropriate questions” 

“Is that what we are?” 

“I’d say we get too personal to just be co-workers don’t you?” 

“Yeah I guess you’re right” 

… 

“Need some help with that?”

Jason entered the office, pulling out a safety pin from his pocket and taking the bottle away from Alicia’s hand.

“I was going to break it if I couldn’t get it to open” She stated, a slightly guilty look on her face.

Jason chuckled to himself, he twisted the pin into the broken cork and secured the neck of the bottle between his fingers. “Were you really?”.

“Maybe” she bit her bottom lip, jumping at the sound of the cork popping. “How manly of you” she shyly complimented, taking the bottle from his hands.

The two of them sat together in silence, the awkwardness lingered in the air.

“I haven’t heard from you in a few days…” Alicia spoke in a low voice.

“I know” Jason sighed, turning to face her

“Where were you?” She asked, trying to mask her hurt. “I’ve been trying to call you”

“I’ve been burying myself in work…” Jason explained, pressing his thumb to his palm. Working on this case gave him a peak into Alex’s personal life, which obviously involved Sofia. After to speaking to a few sources from their circle, he felt sick to his stomach hearing how they’ve been claimed as ‘The Perfect Couple’.

He tried to keep it strictly about Alex, but every time someone even mentioned her name he couldn’t think straight.

“I think Eli might be right about some funny business going on. Most of the information I’ve found about Alex has been clean, but there are bits that just seemed to have been erased…”

“Like what?”

“I’m goin’ to find out. It could be something or it could mean nothing…we’ll see” he answered, his eyes glanced down to the open bottle on her lap. “You still plan on drinkin’ that?”

“If I do, does that mean I have a problem?”

He laughed to himself, taking off his glasses and folding them perfectly into his jacket pocket. He picked up the bottle from Alicia, placing it on the table in front of him. “Trust me, you won’t need it”

He placed his fingers under her chin, pulling her close to him giving her an apologetic kiss. “Sorry for disappearing on you”

Alicia swallowed hard, her heart feeling at ease now that he’s here with her. “Did it have something to do with her?”

“This case is just a little personal for me…I needed some time to…adjust”

Alicia interlocked her fingers with his, staring deep into his soft eyes. “That doesn’t answer my question, Jason”

He didn’t know what to tell her, but his silence was a clear enough answer for Alicia. “I thought you’ve never been screwed over by love?” She questioned, recalling the conversation they had a while ago.

Jason ran his finger through his hair, leaning back against the sofa and giving her hand a small squeeze. He turned his head to look at her. “Just because I haven’t been screwed over, doesn’t mean that I didn’t do it someone else”

Alicia nodded quietly, she couldn’t imagine Jason as being the heartbreaking type, but it only just reminded her how little she knew about him in the first place. “Do you still have feelings-”

“I’ve moved on” he interrupted, cocking his brow as he allowed his confidence to hide his uneasiness. “Clearly” he said, scaling his eyes down Alicia’s body making her blush slightly.

Alicia stood up, hiking up her skirt slightly to show off her beige garter. She brushed aside her feelings, all she wanted in this moment was him. These days apart were teasing, leaving her unsettled and unsatisfied. “Well then, Mr. Crouse…” she said seductively, straddling herself onto his lap. “Let’s move forward”

Jason massaged his hand up her thigh, tugging at her garter, his eyes fell heavy as he watched her unbutton her black jacket.

“Whatever you say, Mrs. Florrick”

- Three Years Ago -

Jason knew Sasha was eccentric from when she first hired him, but she was a sweet woman and paid him well. For whatever reason that he couldn’t fucking possibly understand, she took a liking to him.

He thought she was a great employer and felt bad about what she was going through in her personal life. It was the only reason he could think of why she’s suddenly become obsessive talking about her assistant.

“She’s veery pretty, Jason. I’d think you’d like her”

Jason continued brushing her comments aside, not thinking to much of them. It was all meaningless, then he met Sofia.

He didn’t want to use cheesy words like “she took my breath away”, but he actually felt his heart stop beating the minute she opened the door for him.

He wasn’t thinking when he asked to come inside, and he didn’t anticipate her to say yes, but she did. They spoke endlessly, at first it was casual and formal before it eventually turned interesting, and Jason couldn’t resist asking her out.

She was much younger than he was, he knew that, but she was exactly what he needed. A man can’t deny himself a harmless fling with a gorgeous woman now, can he?

He watched her nervously think about his offer, before she asked, “If I agree, would you tell me what happened to your arm?”

Jason lifted up the cast that bandaged his wrist, “Sure thing, but you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out” He compromised.

Sofia bit her bottom lip, shying her glance away from his. “Well, now you’ve got me curious. I guess I’m going to have to say yes”

“It’s a date then” Jason answered, getting up from her desk and making his way out her office door. “I’ll swing by here to pick you up. Until tomorrow, Sofia”
