Mercedes walked into the kitchen and took the beef out of the fridge. Sam looked at her.
"Ok what are you making hamburgers?"
"No I am making my mother's famous cheese chip dip. You don't eat pizza and burgers together. Well normal people don't."
"Ok anything I can do?"
"Yeah while I am cooking the beef you can get the Cheddar cheese out of the fridge and cut it them into squares."
He watched her for a moment as she put the oil in the pan. He had been fighting the urge to kiss her all day he realized he couldn't fight it anymore. He walked behind her and wrapped his arms around her.
"Empty house just me and you."
"Hey the kitchen is for cooking not for getting fresh."
He spun her around and kissed her. She wrapped her arms around him as he pulled her closer to him. He stuck his tongue in her mouth with ease, and she felt weak at his kiss. She didn't want to let him go…she wanted to kiss him longer. She wanted to feel like that forever. His kiss stopped the world. He pulled away from her reluctantly once he heard the oil begin to pop. She smiled.
"I better get that."
"You don't have too. I really wanna kiss you again."
"I bet you do." She said smirking up to him.
"I am going to kiss you again."
He pulled her back into his arms and kissed her again. As her arms caressed his muscular back he pushed her against the wall. He lifted her blouse and ran his fingers over her laced bra. She held him tighter as he kissed a trail down her body. He moved down her neck and to her shoulder. He unbuttoned her shirt and cupped her breast in his hands. As he kissed his way down to her breast she pulled back away from him.
Sam stepped back running his hands through his hair. "I'm sorry I got carried away."
He looked into her eyes and saw what he had known from her reactions to his touch.
"You're a virgin aren't you?"
"I better get back to the food." Mercedes passed him and sighed. Sam followed her.
"Why do avoid questions we already know the answer too." He asked folding his arms.
"Why do you ask questions you already know?"
"You can't answer a question with a question."
Mercedes turned towards him. "Yes ok yes I am I am a virgin."
"What?" she asked cutting her eyes at him.
Sam threw his hands in the air. "I am sorry that came out wrong I meant to say wow and it came out why."
"Look I just haven't found anyone worth having that kind of relationship with ok."
"Cedes its more than ok you are doing what you need to do to make you happy…its nothing to be ashamed of."
"I'm not ashamed of it." She turned back towards the beef.
"Then why won't you look me into my eyes?"
Mercedes sighed heavily. "Because I know you aren't."
"And how do you know that."
"I just do."
"What your not are you?"
"No I'm not but just knowing that you are I wish I was."
Mercedes shook her head. "Is that so?"
"And why is that?"
Sam moved closer to her. "Because I know that you are looking for some guy who is also a virgin to carry you into the sunset."
"No I know it is highly unlikely for guys in this day and age to be virgins…so I have come to terms that the man I marry may very well not be one."
"Well then I guess I am back in the running huh."
She pulled him into a kiss. After a minute she pulled away.
"Does that answer your question?"
Mercedes bit her lip. "But just out of curiosity how many."
"How many women have there been?"
"Honestly six…two in high school and 4 in and after college…the ones in high school I thought I loved them…I thought it was time and both times it turned out not to be true."
"If you loved them why didn't it work?"
"My first love and I were 15 and it just kinda happened. But then it kinda happened a lot just not with me. She became what most guys would call a hoe. So I dumped her."
"And the other?"
"I was 17 and she was 16. I was stupid didn't protect me or her and she got pregnant…she wasn't ready to be a mother and I knew I wasn't ready but I didn't want to abort it…she couldn't face her parents she was too ashamed…in the end we did what was best for her."
"You aborted it."
"Yeah she wasn't ready and I couldn't force her to keep it."
"Sometimes things happen…being young you don't always think of what is right…you think of what works."
"Yeah it took me a while but I never got over the guilt I told myself that the next time I would be careful until we were both ready and I haven't had that problem since."
"I can't say I know how that felt but I think you were brave."
"Yeah well if I was brave I would have fought for my child."
"You stopped a child being born into a family who wasn't ready for it…I don't agree that it's the best way out but that girl was the one who had to make the choice I know you feel it was your choice too but she would have to carry the baby and go through labor you wouldn't it wasn't really your decision."
"I never actually thought of it like that."
"Well now you can."
"You are so smart I must reward you sloppy kiss."
"What is a sloppy kiss?"
He puckers his lips out placed some of the ranch dip on his lips and smacked them together.
"This is a sloppy kiss."
He chased her around the counter and caught her.
"Let me go eww don't kiss me."
"Oh come on its not gonna hurt you."
He kissed all over her face while she tried to pull away. He let her go and she went to the sink to wipe her face. She eyed the water hose and smiled.
"What are you smiling at?"
"Let's play who wants to get soaked for giving Mercedes a sloppy kiss."
Sam folded his arms. "You wouldn't dare spray me."
She held it up.
"I guess you have to ask yourself…do you feel lucky…well do you?"
"You know if you spray me I am just gonna take from you and get you back...so I guess you have to ask your self do you feel lucky…well do you?" He cocked his eyebrows and smiled.
"Whatever always ruining my fun."
She placed it back and eyes her mini squirt gun. She pretended to wash her hands and filled it with water. Mercedes walked up behind Sam squirted him in the back then ran into the living room and hid behind the couch. He grabbed a glass and filled it with water and ran into the living room.
"Come out come out where ever you are."
Sam walked to the side of the couch and she moved to the back of it. As he looked behind the couch she ran upstairs. He ran after her and followed her into her bedroom.
"Cedes I am gonna find you now you can make this easier on yourself and give up."
As he went further into the room she jumped out the closet she squirted his back again and he whirled around and grabbed her. He held the glass over her head.
"You look hot maybe I should cool you off."
"No I'm cool thanks though."
"No you really look hot this should help."
He dumped the water down her shirt with a huge smile. "I love a good wet t-shirt contest." Mercedes pushed him away from her as she screamed.
"Why would you do that now you're going down?"
She grabbed a pillow and hit him with it. He fell backwards onto her bed and pulled her down with him.
"Ok enough fun for one day."
Mercedes pinned him down under her.
"You calling a truce old man what can't handle the fire then stay out the kitchen?"
"What…I can handle anything you throw at me."
Mercedes stood up. "Let's wrestle."
"Say what now?"
"You said you can handle me then let's go for the belt I win I get the title you win well that won't happen."
"Oh no I was on the wrestling team in high school."
"Yeah in the fifties."
"Ouch Cedes that hurt."
She laughed and pulled him off the bed.
They circle around each other and Sam lounged towards her. She pulled back and spun behind him. He stepped back and tripped over her. Mercedes jumped on top of him and pinned him down.
"One two three…and the champ once again is Mercedes."
"Where does it say in the rules you can use a move like that?"
"There are no rules whoever pins first wins and I win."
"I wanna rematch."
He tossed her over and got on top of her.
"Any ways old or young what man would fight a woman when she is on top."
"Well I don't know but here is a woman who will fight a man so I can stay on top."
They wrestled back and forth and until Sam had her pinned on the floor.
He bent down and began to kiss her neck.
"How about now?"
"Hey that's cheating."
She struggled to get free then flipped him over and nibbled on his neck.
"Hey that is not fair."
"Say you give up."
She moved to his ear and nibbled on it.
"Give up yet."
"Yes truce I give up you win."
"I know I always do."
She moved to the side and he looked into her eyes and smile.
"You have the most beautiful eyes I have ever seen."
"I don't know they trap me somehow."
"You have the sexiest eyes…and lips."
She placed her finger on his lips and trailed it down his face. She whispered in his ear.
"How did I get so lucky?"
"I was just thinking that same thing."
"Sam I really like you…you are everything I have ever wanted in a guy."
"I like you too."
"You know I could fall in love with you."
"I think I could too."
"Why is it in moments like this people always whisper."
"Moments like this are too precious to spoil with loud voices."
She reached up and kissed him. As her tongue traveled to meet his she knew she didn't want to be with anyone else. Sam pulled back after a moment.
"I think we should go back downstairs."
Brittany and Santana walked into her apartment.
"Sorry about this I thought I had my ID."
"Its ok we got time."
"So this will only take me a second."
Brittany walked into her room and within a few seconds walked back out. Santana looked at her pictures. Brittany stood behind her.
"Those are my parents."
"Oh Brittany you scared me."
"Sorry…they took that about a year before they passed."
"Oh my parents died to."
Santana shrugged. "It's no big it was eight years ago and we handled it."
"You and Mercedes are inseparable aren't you?"
"Yeah Sam and I go way back to."
"So no pictures of your boyfriend?"
"Don't have a boyfriend…. Now girlfriends…well not a steady one that is."
"Yea me neither…boyfriend or girlfriend I mean a few prospects but none serious."
Brittany sighed moving closer to her. "Ok…cool…so if I wanted to kiss you I wouldn't have to worry about anyone trying to stop me?"
"Ummmmmmmm DID I say I wanted your lips on me."
"It was just a question."
Santana moved slowly around Brittany. "Yeah and that was just an answer."
So what does a girl gotta do to get a kiss from you?"
"Well she has to be hot, and funny. Really cool and has a job."
"Oh …so what if I took it upon myself to kiss you."
"You wouldn't do that."
"And how do you know."
"Cause you take the risk of me going all Lima heights adjacent on you."
"Really?" Brittany said smirking.
"Yeah ima black belt."
"Yeah in your closet."
Santana moved closer to her. "I could take you."
"And I would let you."
Brittany pulled Santana to her and she pushed her against the wall. Santana wrapped her arms around Brittany and her tongue caressed hers, as she pulled her to the couch. Brittany laid her on the couch and kissed her deeply. Santana pulled away and looked at her.
"Words aren't your forte huh."
"Never mind just shut up and kiss me again."
Santana pulled Brittany to her again. Kissing Brittany felt so right. She never felt like that when she kissed anyone. Brittany's kiss was filled with passion and lust and that she couldn't get enough of.
Mercedes and Sam laughed as they returned downstairs and back towards the meat and he went back to the cheese smiling knowing that the kisses they shared were the first of many more and that excited and scared him to the core. He looked over to her flustered face.
"So how long have you and Santana been roommates?"
"Since we were 15."
"And your parents didn't mind that?"
"The beef will be ready shortly."
"You must really have issues with your parents."
Mercedes sighed tuning towards him. "Why do you say that?"
"Because every time I mention them you get defensive and cut me off."
"I just don't like talking about them."
"Did ya'll fight and haven't spoken in years?"
"So you just don't like talking about them for no reason."
Mercedes slammed the spatula down. "Sam my parents are dead and so are Santana's"
"Wow I'm sorry I just."
"Its fine they died when I was 17 a semi-truck plowed into them…this was the place our parents bought for us for when we graduated."
"They bought it when you were 17?"
"No way before that…see this was the apartment Santana's mom and mines had when they were in college and they bought it when they found out they were both having girls…they met our dad's one night when my mom had a flat and my dad and his friend helped them. She invited them over for some hot chocolate and the rest is history."
"Wow so ya'll were like destined to be sisters."
"Yep…our moms did everything together…they grew up together and so did their mom's and so on. They got pregnant within months of each other Tana is older by two months. We grew up from the womb to now together she is my sister."
"Wow and I thought Brittany and I were lifelong friends."
"After our parents died we just decided to sell their houses and move into here…our families wanted to split us up but we wouldn't have it I couldn't leave Tana and she couldn't leave me."
He saw a tear fly down her cheek. He walked near her and wiped it away. Then he kissed her cheek and held her.
"You have been through a lot haven't you?"
"Yeah but the one thing our parents always taught us was faith. …we always knew they were with us every day."
"Wow I knew you had a story but I didn't know this was it."
She went back to the beef.
"Well the beef is ready have you sliced the cheese?"
"In perfect square cubes."
"Well that wasn't necessary…so from the way you sliced the cheese I can tell you like to cook."
"Yeah…my sister taught me when we were younger."
She placed half the cheese cubes in a bowl and then placed the meat in. she covers the rest of the meet with cheese adds bacon bits and season salt and a pepper and starts to mix the ingredients.
"So Mr. Evans what's your story?"
"My parents live in Nashville."
"And your sister?"
"She died years ago."
"Its ok she wouldn't want me to be sad."
"Yeah neither would my parents."
"Yeah well see growing up I was a bad little kid…all the kids in my neighborhood were like older than me…picture a 8 year old hanging out with 14, 15, 16 year olds who were in a gang it wasn't a pretty sight."
"I knew you were a little bad boy."
"Yeah my parents knew it too see they couldn't take care of me and so I was moved from my parents to my sister."
"You were that bad?"
"No I mean they had me in their late 30's. When I was born my sister was like 15. When I moved down here she was a police officer and she loved it the rush of catching the bad guys. My dad was sheriff in Florida so she wanted to be just like him."
"So how if she grew up in Florida did she end up here?"
"Well she went to school here wanted to get away from everything and loved it. I loved it too and I am glad I am here. My sister saved my life I would be in the streets or maybe even dead if it wasn't for her."
"Wow so you owe her your life."
"I guess you can say that…so what did your parents do."
"Well my mom was a teacher and my dad was a police officer…well he was a detective kinda like Brittany…he loved his work. He used to take me to work with him and I got to arrest his friends and interrogate them. Santana and I even got his buddies to play a prank on some guys trying to make the move on us."
Sam laughed. "You two were little devils weren't you?"
"A little…Santana was the cheerleader pretty girl always wore dresses and had her hair different every day."
"Take a guess."
"Hmmm you were the book worm the strait A's queen right?"
"Then what were you?"
"I was a tomboy…I loved sports and I also played in the band and sang in the choir. Every one wondered how we could be so close when we were so different I told them if we were just alike we would not have as much fun as we did in high school or as we do now…so what about you and Brittany."
"I met Brittany and her brothers Kurt and Finn when I was 10. That is when I moved here…they lived next door to my sister. I was on the porch minding my own business when this water balloon went sailing over my head and hit me. Next thing I knew Brittany and her brothers came running towards me and asked if I had any squirt guns. I had millions of them. We stocked up and went hunting for the high school kids who attack them and got me one good.
We had a great time. After that we all became friends…we were all into sports and video games we would stay up all night playing each other just having fun."
"I loved times like that."
"So care to tell me about your ex-boyfriend?"
"Noah wow where to begin I met him when I was in middle school touring the high schools. He was a Sr. by the time I got into high school. He helped me through my parent's death but became a jerk. We were together for years. Like till I was 21 around then he started acting really different…he cheated on me and treated me bad. He became the typical male."
Sam smiled staring down at her. "And what is the typical male."
"He wants what he can't have...when Noah and I dated he didn't want me but as soon as we broke up he's all over me."
"Well I guess your right he is the typical male...however I'm not."
"Good to know Mr. Evans."
She smiled as she heard the front door open.
"Well it looked like they are finally back."
Brittany and Santana walk into the kitchen.
"Wow Sam you're cooking."
"I'm just helping…did you guys get the Pizza?"
"Yep…hey Sam you and Brittany can set up the movies we will finish up in here."
The guys walk out the room and Santana looked over at Mercedes.
"Girl tell me where has she been all my life…she is super-hot and just amazing."
"Tana are you gonna help or rant on and on about a girl you just met."
"Hey I can do both…she told me she and Sam met when they were young…said they are best friends…and I got to thinking."
"Oh Lord we know what happens when you think."
"Well you know we are destined to find best friends to marry."
"Mercedes you mean to tell me you don't see it?"
"Sam and Brittany are best friends…its destiny…when our parents met each other our dads were best friends and so were our moms…then our grandparents were friends it goes way back."
"Ok what does that have to do with Sam and Brittany?"
"Well they are best friends we are sisters they are both hot and single so are we."
"Tana you are taking this to the extreme…we are not going to marry Sam and Brittany you can't even keep a relationship."
"Hey if they were all like Brittany maybe I could."
"Tana grab the cups from the cabinets and put ice in them."
"Cedes just think we could be in the presence of our future spouses."
"I am serious."
"Tana the snacks are ready…are you?"
"Yeah I am."
"Wait a minute…you're damp."
"You are damp…what happened?"
"Nothing uh huh tell me."
"It was nothing."
"It was nothing ok we were cooking then we started kissing and kissing and cooking he chased me with ranch dressing all over his lips and gave me sloppy kisses…I squirted him with my little squirt gun. He -chased me around the house when we got to my room he poured water all over me we just had so much fun Santana I keep denying it but I am falling hard for this one I like him so much."
"Yeah well I can tell you guys better not have been in my room."
"Don't worry us weren't…Now let's just get going them gonna think we ran away."
They walked into the room and saw the Brittany and Sam sitting on the couch and they sat and got ready for a night of movies. Mercedes placed the food onto the table.
"So what movies do you want to watch we have Netflix and Hulu?"
Mercedes grabbed the remote looking towards Sam and smiling. He was wearing her down and there was nothing she could do to stop it.
