CHAPTER 10: DRUNK
I felt like I was floating in clouds and laughed loudly as Ethan told me something hilarious.
I was drunk.
And I regretted it instantly as I almost toppled over and fell from the bar stool.
Ethan’s arm came around my waist, stopping me from falling on my face.
I nodded, still smiling widely and put my hands on his shoulders to steady myself.
It had been an amazing day.
After being bored for two long days in Reid’s non existent company and watching my mother’s and Henry’s sweet bliss, I had finally spent a day with Ethan and had enjoyed myself to the maximum. He had a charming attitude, that drew me in like every other sane girl and his humorous personality made me feel almost back at home.
“You don’t look so good, we should get you back.” Ethan said in concern and helped me stand up. I felt dizzy as my feet touched the ground and gripped on to him tighter for support.
“Uh...That is a good idea.” I agreed, slightly slurring my words.
He guided me outside the bar in silence and towards the suites.
“E-Ethan?” I mumbled slightly.
“I don’t.... This is not my room.” I wasn’t drunk enough to realize that my room was on the opposite side of the ship.
“I know.” He grinned at me.
“But- I want to sleep. I am so tired-” He cut me off as his lips covered mine and ate all the words I was going to say.
I felt a gagging feeling at the back of my throat and I put my hands on his chest pushing him back. He slightly stumbled back, his eyes dark and full of lust.
“What- what are y-you doing? I want to go back.”
He tried to kiss me again and I moved away from him but his tight grasp kept me close.
“You can stay here.”
I felt a sudden jolt pass through my body, bringing me back to my senses.
“I said no! I don’t want to sleep with you.” My hand came to slap him clumsily but he easily caught it. His hard lips again came crashing against mine, making me want to vomit at the sensation.
He turned us around, my back touching the door to his room and his body pushed against mine. I felt disgusted as I felt his boner against my stomach. I struggled in his grasp and tried to scream but most of my voice was muffled due to his mouth on me. A tear escaped my eye and I felt it glide down my cheek.
“If you would just stop moving baby we can make the most out of this moment.” He said as his hand came to cover my mouth.
I bit his hand hard and he screamed.
“You little bitch!” His hand was just about to hit my face before he was yanked from on top of me.
Reid stood angry with his hands around Ethan’s collar and punched him in the jaw.
“Don’t you dare fucking touch her again!”
“The lady had no problem with it. She was in fact enjoying it.”
I gasped as Ethan tried to lamely fight back before another punch hit him and he was knocked out and fell back near my feet.
Reid stepped over his body and came to stand in front of me, instantly grabbing my wet face in his large hands.
“Elizabeth, are you alright?”
I put both my hands on his and nodded, clearing my throat. “Just a little startled.”
He nodded and sighed. “You should probably take some rest.”
I agreed and felt his arms suddenly come on my back and my thighs and he swooped me up into his arms.
I screamed in surprise at his action. He carried me to our room as I tried my best to not lean on to his warm and inviting chest.
He put me down and opened the door.
I moved inside with him following behind closely.
“Reid, thank you. Again.” I said turning around to face him.
He nodded his head. “Why do I always find you in such situations?”
I chose not to reply and he turned around to leave the room, considering my silence as I kicked off my heels.
My hands tried to find the zipper to my tightly clad dress that made me feel trapped suddenly and I failed.
“Reid?” I asked as he was just about to shut the door.
He turned around and looked at me.
“Can you help me unzip my dress?”
He sucked in a breath but nodded as he stood behind me.
I felt his hands on my back and shivered. He moved my hair to the front and ever so slowly pushed down the zipper. I felt his cool breath lightly fan against my heated neck.
I instantly felt relieved and within no time pushed the dress off my body.
I turned around to face him, standing drunk in my lace panties and with no bra on. I was wearing a strapless dress and since I didn’t have a strapless bra, I decided against wearing one.
I lamely grinned up at him. “Thank you. I am so tired.”
His eyes were fixated on my swell breasts and shifted downwards to check out my body. He suddenly looked up, a tinge of pink on his cheeks and looked away from me.
“Are you- uh- do you have a night suit or something?”
I nodded my head and laid down onto my back on the bed. I heard him shuffle through my wardrobe as he came back with my bright pink and white pajamas.
He looked funny to be holding such a pair of clothing in his professional clothing and I giggled. I quickly wore the pajamas as he looked away and I put on a loose gray T-shirt.
Reid again turned around to leave but without any thought, I felt my hand wrapping around his, stopping him.
“Stay. Please?” I said sleepily.
He nodded and came to the other side of the bed, discarding his suit jacket, lying at a safe distance from me but still gripping my hand and rubbing circles in it.
“’Night.” I mumbled back.
I felt myself doze off as I thought of his warm hand on other places of my body.
