THIRTY SIX

I walked the room having small conversations with new members and old. I sipped my wine as I kept my eyes on Nash. His confidence shined as he himself made his way around the room with my brother and father. Every once in a while he would make eye contact with me. When our eyes met, I felt the surge of sexual energy flow through my body. I knew he felt it too because I could see it in his eyes. I would only smile and press my lips to my glass.

It had been a few hours and I was now ready to head back to my bedroom. The party was starting to calm down. I scanned the party and found Nash and my brother talking by the fireplace. I watched him for a moment and then watched as he made his way out of the party and walked out back, closeting the back door behind him. I sat my glass down and followed him.

The lights were turned down low as I closed the back door behind myself. I took a look around and didn’t see him anywhere. I walked out further and made my way down the small path that leads to the pool. Still, I didn’t see Nash anywhere. Where the hell is he? I said to myself. Before I was able to turn around. I felt his hand land on the back of my neck. His warm breath was by my ear. “Looking for me?” He whispered. I only nodded my head. He forcefully pulled me back into his body. I reached down and grabbed his thigh. His other hand grabbed the front of my neck. “You have been a very bad girl all night long Carolina.” I nodded again. “I should teach you a lesson.” Again I nodded. Fuck me, I could feel the wetness building between my legs and I knew he knew what he was doing to me.

Nash pulled us both behind the pool and pressed me against the wall. He pulled my dress up my legs and moved my panties to the side. His lips crashed into mine and his fingers went in between the folds of my already wet and swollen folds. I let out a soft moan as he entered two fingers inside me. His lips were now on my neck. “You make me so fucking hot, princess.” Has I started to get more into it and my moans were stronger now. Nash grabbed the back of my hair and forced my head up. He held on as he undid his pants. He flipped me around and I tried to grip the wall as he entered me from behind. He gripped my hips and thrust in and out of me with such speed that I came all over him. Nash followed right after me. We both stood there trying to catch our breaths.

I turned and laid against the wall as I giggled. Nash just looked at me. He shook his head with a small smile on his face. “I love you,” I said to him and he walked back to me and kissed my lips.

“I love you too.” He whispered out. Nash took one last deep breath and then went to his knees in front of me. He looked down and then looked back up at me. Only this time he had a small box in his hand. My eyes got big and my mouth started to open. “Carolina, I have learned over this time with you. That there is no one else in this lifetime that I would rather be with. You are the only woman I have ever cared about and then fell deeply in love with. My world only functions with you by my side. I would die for you. Please make my life even more complete by becoming my wife. Will you marry me?” Tears started to fall down my face as I formed a smile.

“Yes.” Was all I could get to come out of my mouth. Nash stood up and pulled me into his arms. He placed the huge diamond onto my hand. I wrapped my arms around him and our lips met.

“Thank you.” He said and I looked at him.

“For what?”

“For giving me everything I have ever wanted.” I smiled at him and took his hand into mine.

“Nash, it has always been you. Before I even met you. I was looking for you. I know that I had lost my way there for a while, but even then it was you I was thinking about. It was you my body was craving. I will love you always and now I get to be your queen, and you have made me so happy.” He smiled at me and took my hand. We walked back inside and started to head to our bedroom. My brother, Vance and my father were standing in the kitchen when we walked in.

“Carolina, are you okay?” I heard my father ask. I turned and looked at him. I then realized I had tears. I stopped and looked at my father. I showed him my hand.

“Nash just asked me to be his wife and I said yes.” All

of a sudden the room was filled with applause. My smile became huge. The men all surrounded Nash and they were patting him on the back and shaking his hand. My father came over to my side and pulled me into his arms.

“I’m very happy for you sweetheart. We’re going to have a huge celebration.”

“Thank you, daddy,” I said as more tears fell down my cheeks. Later that night, I laid in bed just looking out the window. I could hear the soft snores next to me. My life has never been what I would call easy. My life was never bad, but I grew up in a home of love and protection. I never thought I could be so much in love with someone. Just the thought of losing him. Put such a pain deep in my heart. I rolled over and watched him sleep. This hardcore man loved me. A man that is still rough around the edges wanted me. I couldn’t wait to be his wife and move into our own home. I had a gift of my own that I had wanted to share with him this night, but he chose to give me a gift of my own. I’ve known now for the last week that I was eight weeks pregnant with his baby. I wanted to tell him, but then he asked me to be his wife. After telling the people I loved the most. Nash brought me back to our room and made love to me for hours. If I wasn’t already pregnant. I would be after tonight.

I fell asleep not long and when I opened my eyes Nash was already gone. Most mornings when I wake up, Nash is already gone and working. I pulled myself out of the bed and headed for the shower. When I walked out of the bathroom. I found my best friend Joanie sitting at the foot of my bed. “Hey, you,” I said as I walked past her into my closet.

“Hey, I need to talk.”

“So talk,” I said from the closet.

“I’m in love.” I heard her say and I smiled.

“Oh yeah? With who?” I said, still with a smile on my face.

“You know who Carolina. Stop playing with me.” I walked back out of the closet and took a seat next to her.

“I’m sorry, I’m not trying to play with you. It’s just that I have been waiting for you to say something. I knew you and Vance were together.” Joanie just shook her head. I could see the worry on her face. “Joanie, what’s wrong?” She looked up at me.

“It’s just things between Vance and myself have been going so good. I’m afraid that once everyone knows it might change.” I tapped her arm.

“Everyone will be happy for you. I’m very happy for you. Vance is Nash’s best friend. I have some news for you. Nash asked me to be his wife last night.” Joanie jumped up and her eyes were huge. I showed her my ring and we both started to jump around like children.

“Girl, you are so lucky. I’m so excited.” She said and did a little dance. I wanted so bad to tell her I was pregnant, but I wanted Nash to be the first to know. “When do we get to start planning the wedding?”

“Calm down, I just got engaged last night,” I said with a huge smile on my face. Just then Nash came walking into the bedroom. Poor Nash got bombarded with Joanie’s arms around him for a hug.

“Congratulations.” She said. I watched her kiss his cheek and then she left the room. Nash had a funny look on his face. I had to giggle.

“I’m guessing she knows we’re getting married?” I nodded at him as he came and took a seat next to me. “I have the day off. What do you want to do today?”

“Actually, I have something I want to talk to you about.”

“Sure princess, what is it?” I got up and paced the room a little. “Carolina?” He said. I turned and looked at him.

“I’m pregnant.”
