“Hey, Krystal. I’m really sorry about all of this”
“You’re the one who sent the email!?” I step back when he steps toward me.
“Yeah, but I only did it to get you back.” He has his hands in his pockets acting as if he did nothing wrong.
“How did you know?”
“I’ve known the whole time. I passed by his class one day and overheard him going on and on about a girl named Audrey and I knew it was you. You told us that was going to be your cover at the ball. I saw you get out of his car one night, but I didn’t know it was his car until he pulled up in the parking lot one day and I just knew. “He is beginning to sound angry and I don’t know why.
“Why are you doing this?” The wind blows and I turn my body to block it.
“I want you to be mine again Krystal and you just keep rejecting me over and over yet you are always being so fucking flirty around me” He hisses
“Robert, I’m not trying to lead you on. If I made you think that we could be together again then I’m sorry, but I don’t love you anymore.”
He walks up to me fast and I don’t even have time to think before he has a knife poking me in my chest. “Dammit Krystal, why can’t you just be with me!”
“Please Robert, put the knife away” My voice shakes as tears begin to develop. He grabs me by the arm and leads me further away from the doorway. I really hope Jacob is around somewhere.
“Where are you taking me, Robert?” I begin to trip up on my dress as we cross over some grass.
“I just want you to myself” He whispers.
I try to pull away from him, but he just yanks me along harder.
I end up falling in the grass from tripping over a large stick. I slip out of his grip and realize this is my own chance. I get up and start to run. I scream for help as loud as I can, but I know the music will be too loud for anyone to hear me.
I turn around and Robert is running after me. I pray that I don’t fall again, but my prayers fail me. I stumble and fall. Stupid heels. I roll over and Robert is over me “Why did you run from me!”
Tears fall down my face as he points the knife at my neck “Please Robert, don’t hurt me!”
“I just want you to be with me, Krystal. I love you so much” He whispers.
“I’m sorry Robert, I can’t,” I say through my tears. He presses the knife down in my skin and I cry harder.
In the distance, I hear Mya calling me.
“Mya!” I yell as loud as I can and Robert covers my mouth. “Shut up or I’ll cut your throat!”
Everything looks like a blur of my tears and I’m sure that he is going to hurt me. I hear footsteps running towards us then I hear his voice. Julius. “Robert, Put the knife down please” He pleads, but Robert doesn’t respond.
“This is all your fault! You took her away from me. We could have been together again!” Robert yells.
Then out of nowhere, Robert is tackled from over me. Wipe my eyes and see Jacob and Robert on the ground fighting. Mya and Julius come to my side. I yell for them to stop when I see Robert’s hand with the knife. All I see is his hand slam into Jacob and I scream. Mya pulls me close and Julius runs to them. Robert runs away and I see Jacob laying on his back. I immediately think the worst. I close my eyes and turn my head into Mya. All this is my fault and I feel horrible for pulling Jacob into it all. I’m balling my eyes out when I feel a hand on my shoulder.
“Krystal, I’m fine”
I look up and Jacob is there. I scan over him and jump into his arms. He squeezes me tight “It’s okay. I’m fine.”
I pull back “How?”
He reaches into his pocket and pulls out his phone “This case was really worth the $80 I spent on it” He smiles and I giggle through my tears and hug him again. I hurry off the ground before someone comes out and sees. I wrap my arms around Jacob “I’m so happy you’re okay”
“Me okay? I’m relieved that you’re okay. When I tried to go out the side door it was locked and by the time I got out here you were on the ground with a knife to your throat” His voice is a little shaky
I turn to Mya and notice her tears. I pull her into a hug and she cries harder “I thought he was going to kill you. I didn’t know he was crazy”
“Me either” I rub her head trying to calm her. I feel her body shaking in my arms almost as much as my own body is shaking.
We quickly notify campus security and they take down all the information I give them about Robert, only leave out everything about Julius. When Mya calms down I wipe away a little runny eyeliner and she looks just as good as before all this. I tell her to go back to Christopher. She is hesitant at first, but I convince her that I’m okay.
I turn to Julius who sitting on the curb. “Julius”
He takes a deep breath “I thought....”
“I know. Me too. “I reach for his hand and pull him up. I wrap my arms around him and mumble “Take me home please.....your home”
After asking Jacob if he is okay about 10 more times, he finally convinces me that he is and that I should leave. “I’m going home. Oh and I was planning on telling you earlier, but I met someone”
“Really?” I smile
“Yeah. Her name is Cassie. I really like her” He chuckles
“Well go to her and tell her”
I hug him again before we all leave. In the car, I run my fingers over my neck where the knife was. As much as I try not to touch it, my hand just gravitates to the spot. I know Julius sees me out of the corner of his eye because he grabs my hand and holds it in his. “It’s okay”
When we get into the apartment, Julius takes me to the bedroom and lays a shirt out for me to put on. He unzips my dress and begins to walk out of the room to give me some privacy but I catch his hand. “No, I want you to stay. I want you” I whisper. I have been away from him too long and now I just want him to myself.
He steps to me and rubs my cold cheek. His hands slide the dress down and it falls to my feet revealing me in nothing but boy shorts. I pull him into a kiss and swiftly, Julius picks me up. I wrap my legs around him as he walks to the bed. He lays me down and I start unbuttoning his shirt. I run my hands over his chest without breaking eye contact. The whole room is dark besides the moon shining in and the eyes look big and beautiful. Julius leans over me and starts licking my neck. I moan in his ear and he licks my earlobe. I catch a chill both from pleasure and being cold. When I slide my hands down to his belt and he stops me “Krystal, you don’t have to do this. We can wait”
I shake my head “I can’t wait anymore. I want this, I want you. Please don’t stop” I pull on his belt and he lets me this time. I unzip his pants and slide them down with my feet. He kicks them off and repeats the process with his boxers.
Julius kisses up and down my body before landing above my underwear. He looks at me and pulls them off. My breath hitches as I realize that I’m really about to do this. He hovers over me and I feel his hard member resting between my legs. I watch him as he lowers down and kisses my stomach. I moan loudly and run my fingers through his hair. I close my eyes and his tongue slides over my sex. My toes curl as my insides go crazy. His tongue works me for what seems like forever. I squeeze the sheets as I feel an orgasm creep up. Just when I’m about to burst, his tongue works his way back up. I moan in defeat and he chuckles.
He slams his mouth into mine and I wrap my legs around him. Julius grips my breasts and rubs my hard nipples which drives me crazy. As he pinches my nipple hard and I bite down on his lips. He groans and I feel his member flinch against my thigh. I feel the head at my opening and I begin grinding against it. Julius moans and presses my hips down with his hand. I want him so bad, but I don’t want to be impatient. I want this to be perfect not rushed.
I slide my hand down his chest and stomach. When I reach further, I grab his hardness and start massaging it. I run my thumb across the tip feeling a small drop of liquid. Julius groans against my lips. He breaks the kiss and his face falls to the side of my neck and bites me. I moan out and he squeezes my breast hard.
“Please, Julius” I groan. I can’t take it anymore.
I need him inside of me now. He leans up on his knees and positions his length at my opening. I bite down on my lips as he slides it in. My eyes roll back and my fingers grip the sheets hard. He feels me up just as I have imagined over and over during my classroom daydreams. I work my hips to match his thrusts as I take him in deeper. As his thrusts become faster, he lays on me and I dig my nails into his back. Julius groans loud but I don’t let up. He runs his fingers through my hair and grips it. My breath becomes quick as he swirls his hips. My body begins to tense up and he knows it. Three hard thrusts later and I’m falling apart in an orgasm. I yell out and my body begins to shake. Julius continues with small slow thrusts until he comes undone. We lay there breathing hard and I let out a small laugh.
“What’s so funny?” He mumbles
I smile “That was so much better than my daydreams”
He kisses me hard and we curl up together for the rest of the night. As I’m falling asleep in his arms I swear I hear him say “I love you.” Instead of opening my eyes, I just let myself sleep without questioning it. I don’t want to ruin this moment for anything in the world.
