Once we arrived at Tyler’s, he placed his luggage inside his home before we drove to my place. “Home sweet home.” I lifted my mailbox and picked out the few letters that were bundled inside. Nestled between two envelopes was one addressed to me in dark blue handwriting. I looked at the back and there was no return address. The letter was hand delivered.
“Yeah, someone must have dropped this one off.”
“Who’s it from?”
“Not sure. There’s nothing written except my name, but the writing looks familiar.” I shifted my attention to Tyler. “I think it’s from Drake.”
“Well, he’s definitely not giving up that’s for sure.”
I sighed and we both made our way into my home. After a quick unpack of my bag, I sat on the barstool against my kitchen island. Tyler took his seat next to me. My fingers tapped the unexpected envelope in my hand while I contemplated opening it.
“Are you going to read it?”
“I blocked his number, so I don’t have to deal with his shit.” I waved the letter in my hand. “And he goes and does this.”
“Are you curious as to what it says?”
“A little, but mostly I just want to burn it.”
“Who says you can’t do both?” I smiled at him. “Want me to give you space?”
“No, baby.” I glanced at the item in my hand before I tore it open and took a deep breath.
You’re ignoring me, so this was the only way I could think to get your attention. Please. We need to talk.
I swallowed my frustration before I handed the letter to Tyler to read. “He sounds desperate to talk to you. What do you think he wants?”
“I don’t know. I can’t imagine it would be important.”
“Tell me if he keeps bothering you. I’d love to do the boyfriend thing and kick his ass.”
A warmness gushed inside every inch of my body. “Mmmm. You said boyfriend.”
He narrowed his eyes. “Isn’t that what-?”
“Of course. I just love hearing you say it.”
Tyler chuckled and shook his head. “You’re adorable.”
“Thank you.” I stepped off the stool and smiled. “We should head back to your place, because if you keep saying sweet things to me, we’re never going to leave.”
“I’m okay with that,” he winked.
“Not until tonight.”
After dropping my overnight bag at Tyler’s, we both made our way to see Ellie and Adrian.
“You’re here!” Ellie beamed. “And you guys made up!” She pulled me in for a hug. “Missed you.”
“I missed you too.”
Tyler laughed. “What was it? Like two days?”
Ellie pulled back and glanced at my boyfriend. “I need my Summer fix.”
“And I need my Ellie fix!”
“Don’t even try to understand it, bro. These two are inseparable,” Adrian interjected.
“You’re lucky I didn’t go with you on our honeymoon,” I chuckled. “Ellie wanted me to, you know?” I joked.
“Did you get my message?” Ellie asked. “Party has been pushed till tomorrow night.”
Fuck. I forgot.
“Now, get your ass in here. I want to hear about the two of you.” She rubbed her hands together.
The four of us settled on their couch and talked about the past few days, excluding the intimate details of our relationship. I had just brought up the letter I found in the mailbox.
“Well, um.” Ellie stretched her lips. “He came here yesterday looking for you. He thought you might be here, but I told him you were interstate.”
“Gosh, he doesn’t want to stop,” I groaned.
“And then after I told him...I kicked his ass.”
I smiled at her. “What did you do?”
“Well, he was facing me, so I turned him around and gave him a kick up the ass.”
I chuckled. “That’s my Ellie.”
“He got angry, but I told him to leave you alone and that you didn’t want anything to do with him,” she sighed. “I guess he didn’t get the message.”
“If I ever see him, I’ll make sure I give him the same message,” Tyler growled.
“You think that a beating from Alex would have done the job,” Adrian added.
“Maybe he needs a refresher,” Tyler vowed. “I don’t want him anywhere near my girl.”
Tyler and I were seated on the couch at his place. “I’m glad it’s Friday night and we don’t have to work tomorrow.”
“Are you going for a jog in the morning?”
I smirked. “Depends on how I feel after tonight.”
Tyler ran his thumb against his chin. “Really? What are you planning to do tonight?”
My tongue glided over my lip before I stood and winked. Not saying anything, I made my way to his bedroom and closed the door behind me before I got changed into the lingerie I had packed in my overnight bag.
I know this will tease him.
The knock on the door startled me before it creaked open and revealed my outfit. His mouth gaped open and his eyes went wide. “Fuck! Are you trying to kill me again?”
I glanced down at my red lace bodysuit. The curves of my breasts were exposed as well as portions of my delicate skin. A smile crept up on my face. “This is your punishment.”
“Punishment for what?”
His eyes travelled up and down my body, while he licked his lips. “Doesn’t look like punishment from where I’m standing.”
A light chuckle escaped my mouth. “It’s punishment when you realize you can’t lay a finger on me the entire night.”
His smile faltered. “Wait. What?”
“I’ll be wearing this tonight, and all you’re allowed to do is watch me.” I slid my hand over the curve of one of my breasts. “Not one finger.”
“Fine. No fingers,” Tyler groaned. “What about my cock? Can I lay my cock on you?” he joked.
“No, baby. Not until I tell you to.”
“You play dirty.”
I stepped closer to him and whispered in a raspy voice. “Isn’t that how you want me?”
