she’s been dancing non-stop ever since she’d arrived, and it’s finally catching up to her. deciding she really needs a drink, she pulls another girl into her partner’s arms before leaving the dance floor and heading towards the bar. ❝ a vodka lime please, ❞ she orders after waving the bartender over, ❝ with lime juice–– none of that cordial stuff, and a little bit of soda. ❞
My makeup for today. Continuing the theme of trying out my new products, today I felt like trying out one of my new kat von d lipsticks and my semi sweet chocolate bar palette. I used too faced semi sweet chocolate bar palette and a light blue eyeshadow from lime crime for the eyes, tarte for the cheeks, and kat von d’s poe for the lips (I’ve been wanting this lipstick for so long and I’m so fucking happy to finally have it and it’s so gorgeous omfg!!)
“Hunk of a man, five o’ clock,” your
friend commented, elbowing you in the side. You whipped your head around to
look over your shoulder in the direction your friend Jade had specified only to
be thoroughly disappointed. He was a patient at the office—you were his dentist
and at just the sight of him you weren’t sure your eyes could roll deeper into
You didn’t even bother give Jade a
response as you turned to your drink at the bar, plucking the lime from the
side of the glass to squeeze into the liquor and give it a quick stir. But Jade
wasn’t letting up; telling you to continue to look and you looked exactly at
the wrong time. He was just in the middle of pushing his hair back when his
eyes met with yours, and he wasn’t about to let that tiny fact go unnoticed. He
gave you a grin and you knew that was it.
“Jade, you’re better than that,
trust me,” you muttered to her, barely breaking your eye contact with him
before you heard your friend whine in desperation.
“But look at him! God he’s so… yummy…”
“Alright vixen, let’s get some
things straight here. That’s Jay, he’s a regular here, and I’m his dentist; and
I don’t care how yummy he is, you won’t
like his attitude. I know, because I don’t like it,” you responded to her,
having her hiss and slap you in the arm at the name you had given her after her
lovely display of self-control.
Jay’s demeanor, you couldn’t lie and say that he wasn’t nice to look at. You
had a thing for guys with tattoos and you had to admit that Jay wore them well.
Not to mention he was basically busting out of his shirt sleeves, he was so
muscular. He had perfect teeth—it was impossible not to when you were the one
who took care of them. His features were sharp and masculine—yes, Jay Park was
very, very nice to look at.
no fun. Even if he’s got a bad attitude, I probably wouldn’t mind just one night—”
your thoughts right there you little seductress,” you quickly cut her off, not
having any of it right now. You
peered back over to see if you could get a short scope on Jay, just to see his
whereabouts and gauge whatever he was doing to see how much time you had before
he came over to you, because he no doubt
would. You couldn’t seem to find him, and by the time you had turned back
around, Jade seemed to have disappeared.
huffed in frustration, unsure of what to do with yourself for the time being so
you plopped back down in the chair you had been standing by for who knows how
long. You finished the last couple sips of your drink before a very unfamiliar
aura loomed around you, and you weren’t sure that it made you want to turn
around, it was so uninviting. But you did, reluctantly, and immediately wished
you were polite at first, but when the man who stood before you began to speak,
you knew you made a grave mistake.
me buy you a drink, pretty lady.” You could smell the alcohol all over his
breath and immediately looked around for somebody, anybody, to bail you out.
no, that’s quite alright. I’ve reached my limit and am ready to head home,” you
responded, continuing on your quest to be polite but you knew there was a line
about to be crossed, and the second that happened, the claws were going to come
out and you couldn’t say whether or not he was to be spared.
let me take you home then, huh? Wouldn’t want you walking home alone,” he
slurred, leaning closer to you and into your personal bubble and that was when
you’d had quite enough and shoved him away from you.
don’t know what you’re not getting about no,
thank the heavens there was somebody there a moment later because the guy
loomed closer to you once more, only to be cut off by a body as you closed your
eyes, knowing you would have to give up if he got physical with you. It was a
masculine back that was blocking your view and you weren’t quite sure who it
was until they spoke.
we seem to be having a problem here?” Jay asked, but the other male just
laughed. “If you’re looking for an easy
fuck, you’re not going to get it here; in fact, she’s quite unavailable to you
that was your cue. You needed to act the part and make it convincing, despite
how much you didn’t want to give Jay the satisfaction of being very up close
and personal with you. But that was the way it had to be, especially when you
stepped to him, pressing into his muscular back, conforming to his curves as
you wrapped your arms around his torso. “So
why don’t you go find somebody else to bug—or better yet, nobody at all,” Jay
continued before slipping to turn around in your grasp, reaching up to cup your
cheeks and press his forehead against yours.
you,” you whispered to him. You were grateful, despite your now compromising
situation but you knew it was about to get much rockier when he looked you dead
in the eyes.
not done,” he commented, and as if on cue, the previous male had made an attack
on Jay’s pride and your confidence, saying something pretty insulting about the
both of you, but you couldn’t particularly pay attention to anything being said
as you drowned in Jay’s intoxicating scent, finding it increasingly difficult
to concentrate on anything the more it asphyxiated you. At least, until it
whisked away, along with the warmth of his hands as Jay turned away from you.
called the guy out, even as he was walking away. His temper was getting the
best of him—Jay had a short fuse, you knew, but you weren’t sure the extent he
was willing to go in order to burn this guy back. “What was that?” he asked and
chested up to the guy who had turned around to face him.
knew where this was going. It was half a second away from a barroom brawl. You
didn’t want to do it, in fact, you had told yourself, and Jade really, just how
slimy Jay was and how neither of you should involve yourselves with him because
you told yourself and Jade that you were better than that. But if you didn’t
man up right now and take a hit for the team, Jay was going to need a lot more
than some pride stitches.
“Baby, it’s okay,” you whispered to him,
coming back up from behind him and standing so tall on your toes, even the
heels of your shoes came off the ground. “Don’t let his petty words pick at you
like that. You know you’re better than that, better than him,” you continued as
you slipped around him to stand between him and the guy who had previously made
your stomach drop in fear. You fanned your hands across his chest, spreading
your fingers wide with frim palms against him as you slowly pushed him a couple
of steps away.
eyes were glued to you, glued to your face, your eyes, your lips as you spoke
to him. “Be the bigger man, the man I know you are,” you told him, taking his hands,
which seemed stiff in yours, and placed them on your waist. He nodded to you,
hands sliding from your waist to your hips where he instinctively drew you in, protectively
against his body. “You know I think you’re the perfect man for me, right?” you
asked him while nodding, coaxing him to nod with you.
only man for you,” he growled back
between gritted teeth as his fingers pressed into your hips, over the top of
your tight black dress. His nose brushed against yours for only a moment, eyes
fluttering before focusing back on your lips. Somewhere in the background was a
group of males who had come over to collect their friend, your nightmare that had put you in this entire situation,
but you were too focused on Jay right in this moment. The way he held you, the
way he looked at you. The both of you were playing the part, but he was just
so, so good at it.
sighed, slouching into his body and his hands slid around your back to wrap his
arms around you—the stress of the entire situation finally rearing its ugly
head. “Thank you,” you said to him, but more mouthing it than anything because
you weren’t sure that he heard you. You leaned your head against his shoulder and
you couldn’t really care how much you didn’t want to be like this with him
right now. He just saved you from a couple of very risky situations, one as a
result of the other, but even still.
muttered your name, sitting the both of you down in the group of lounge chairs
to his right. “Are you okay? You really played the part to get out of there,”
Jay commented to you, seeming more than genuinely concerned which surprised you
hesitated a moment, “I was scared,” you admitted.
a scary place out here for girls like you,” Jay replied. The intention was
there, but the execution was extremely poor and he hadn’t realized what bad
word choice it was until he looked at your face. “I mean… there are always
scumbags around trying to just… be assholes, and they do a pretty good job—yeah,
I’m not comforting, I know,” he said, watching your face as he continued to
talk, noting that it wasn’t really getting any better.
didn’t reply to him, just leaned over and smashed your face against his neck, wanting
nothing but his silent comfort. He
stiffened a bit—now that it was out of the acting setting, he felt strange
being like this with you. You were his dentist, after all. But he could feel
your body beg for him, for his comfort, a sweet slip of his arm around your
body to bring you into the safety of his chest.
you going to tell me what’s going on here?” Jade’s voice interrupted your very
serene moment. You realized the error of your ways, telling Jade about the way
Jay was and then turning around behind her back to cuddle up to him. She felt
slightly backstabbed—you had led her astray to distract her while you moved in
on Jay yourself; at least, that was how she saw it.
promise you it’s not what it looks like,” you replied to her, but refused to
pull away from Jay who just sat semi-awkwardly, having not the slightest idea
what was going on between the two of you. It didn’t matter, Jade stormed out
before you had time to explain. Honestly, you were too busy dealing with your
own crisis to really care. She’d come back around once she gave you a moment of
her time to hear you out.
goes my ride,” you muttered, hot breath beating against his clavicle until you
pulled away. “I really should get going, anyway,” you said, looking around for
your things before realizing your purse was hooked under your seat at the bar.
You stood to grab it before you felt Jay’s soft fingers teasing your wrist.
eyes met with his and you seemed to freeze. Suddenly your feet were stuck in
the ground, limbs stiff, unable to move as you stood in his gaze. “Let me take
you home,” he offered.
your voice stuck in your throat appeared to be a lot harder than you initially bargained
for. You’d never felt this way around Jay, but you also had never experienced
him outside the office. He seemed to be a completely different person. A very
caring and lovable person, but you could still sense a tinge of the persona he
put on in front of you in the chair. Maybe it was a male thing, or a pride
thing, you didn’t really know and didn’t really care.
finally shook your head, able to move something after moments of stillness. “That’s
okay. I’ll get a cab, it’s not that far.”
called your name when you moved to push past him, your wrist slipping from his
grasp. “I’m taking you home,” he said, hand slipping into yours as he passed
you, bringing you out to the parking lot. Part of you really wanted this to
happen, another wanted him to just let you go. You knew it was dangerous and
that you were running the risk of being in the same situation, but for some
reason that didn’t deter the part of you that just wanted to go by yourself.
Maybe it was to spite Jay, because you knew you didn’t want to give him any
ideas. Honestly, if you were being real with yourself—and you were—this was the
safest option. But when you got to Jay’s car, you weren’t sure this was what
you wanted anymore.
