- Chapter 20 | I Don't Want To Catch An STD


“Where am I” I thought as I was waking up.

My head is pounding and I tried sitting up, but there is something heavy holding me in place.

I looked over and saw that I was laying next to Ryder who had his arm around me.

Every time I tried to get his arm off of me he would just pull me closer, so I guess I have to wake him up.

“Ryder” I said shaking him and he didn’t move.

“Ryder” I yell right into his ear and still nothing.

Oh god, I can’t believe I’m going to do this. Since he hasn’t moved, I slowly started trailing kisses on his neck and he started to stir.

Then I slowly kissed and sucked on his sweet spot behind his ear that made him loosen his grip enough for me to get out of his arms.

I realized that I was only in my undergarments so I grabbed the first shirt I saw and put it on. I’m guessing it belongs to Ryder because it ended mid thigh.

I turned around and screamed when I saw Ryder laying on the bed staring at me.

“Oh my god! You nearly gave me a heart attack” I said looking for my dress as he just started laughing.

“You know, I like your technique of waking me up” he said smirking as he got up.

I looked at him and it was like I couldn’t look away, he had such a toned body and that eight pack. Oh god it’s getting hot in here.

“Done checking me out sweetheart?” Ryder asked smirking.

“Not yet” I said smirking and mentally laughing at his shocked expression.

“We didn’t do anything together right?” I asked praying that I didn’t lose my virginity last night.

“Why would it matter?” He asked coming closer.

“Because I don’t want to catch an std”

“I’ll have you know that I don’t have std’s and that we didn’t do anything.” He said coming closer and I backed up.

“Then I really should get going” I said looking around for a way to leave.

“Why are you in such a hurry?” He asked as he put his hands on the wall behind me with my head in between, keeping me in place.

“I’m n-not” I said cursing myself for stuttering.

“You sure about that?” He asks slowly kissing down my neck.

“I’m s-sure..” I say biting on my lip to hold in a moan.

“Ryder...stop” I say trying to get him to stop kissing me, but it came out more like a moan.

“You’re telling me to stop, but your body doesn’t seem to want to” he said working his way up to my jaw.

This feels good, I can’t wait any longer. “Fuck it.” I say and grab his head with my hands and kiss him right on the lips.

“Jump” he says still kissing me and I do. I jump wrapping my legs around him and tangle my hands in his hair.

I can feel his tongue lick my bottom lip asking for entrance and I decline. I can tell he got mad because he grabs my ass making me gasp and let him in.

Kissing him feels so right and I know that I shouldn’t feel this way, but I do.

I don’t want this to get to far, so I broke away and he put his forehead on mine.

“That was..” I say out of breath.

“Wow” he finishes breathlessly.

We were just staring into each other’s eyes and I couldn’t help but get lost in his.

It took so much in me to break my gaze, but I finally did.

“Can you let me down now?” I ask looking away.

“Yea” he says putting me down.

“Can I take a shower?” I asked because I most likely look like a mess.

“Sure, the bathroom is right there and I will get you some clothes.” He says pointing to a door across the room.

“Thank you” I say avoiding his intense gaze as I walk to the bathroom.

Once I’m inside, I close the door and lean against it. Touching my lips because I still have the feeling of Ryder’s on mine.

It takes me a minute to get myself together and take a shower. Once I’m done I wrap a fluffy white towel around me and walk out, only to see Ryder laying on the bed.

I screamed like before. “You have to stop doing that” I say tightening the towel around my body.

His eyes widened when he realized I was only in a towel, but that didn’t stop him from scanning me head to toe with his eyes.

“If you’re done checking me out, can you please leave so I can change.” I ask while he just smirks, gets up, and steps towards me.

“Why don’t I help you?” He asks and I shake my head.


“I can turn around, but I’m not leaving. It’s my room after all.” He says and I sigh.

Once he turns around I grab my clothes and quickly put them on, but before I can get my t-shirt on Ryder turns around.

“Ryder!” I yell covering my bra.

“What? It’s nothing I haven seen before” He says grinning and I blush.

I fucking blushed! I never blush. Oh god what’s happening to me.

I quickly pulled my shirt over my head. Right when I did an arm went around my waist and pulled me to them.

I looked up, only to see Ryder staring down at me.

“Wha...” I started, but didn’t get to finish because Ryder smashed his lips against mine.

I didn’t respond at first, but then I did and he had me on the bed with him on top.

He was kissing up my neck to my jaw then finally my lips and I was in pure bliss.

I don’t remember how long we were making out for, but now we are just laying on his bed with my head on his chest.

“Ana?” He asked and I looked up at him.

“Why do you pretend to be a nerd at school?” He asked and I instantly say up.

“What do you mean? I don’t think I go to your school.” I said hoping he would buy it.

“I know it’s you Anastasia. So why pretend to be a nerd” He said sitting up.

I sighed and leaned my head on his shoulder. “People are fake, when you are a nerd there isn’t anyone who would be fake to you. But if your popular everyone wants to be your friend.” I said hoping that he would believe me.

“But why let people bully you, if you can beat them up?” He asked.

“I don’t want people to know that I can fight, because it’s easier to be a nerd that way.” Or because I’m a secret street fighter and gang leaders daughter, but I can’t say that.

“Why did you lie about where you learned to fight?” He asked and I stood up.

“What do you know about me?” I asked glaring at him because he seems like he knows a lot.

“Let’s make a deal.” He said and I shook my head.


“You have to at least hear it. Okay, so I tell you everything I know about you if you go to school in your normal clothes from now on. Not your nerd clothes and you have to go on a date with me.” He says.

Wait did he say date? Oh my god. Should I agree and show people who I truly am? I guess it’s time for the bullying to stop and I can show them that they can’t mess with me anymore.
