Chapter 24 : Normal Reaction
Angel’s Point Of View
I woke up with a terrible headache. I groaned and snuggled more in the pillow which was radiating warmth all around me.
I opened my eyes and saw a neck in front of me. Arms were wrapped around me and my face was buried in the neck of someone. I pulled away slightly and saw that it was Ace. I relaxed a bit and let my head fall back on his chest. I felt safe in his arms. I groaned and pulled away slowly, not wanting to wake him up. My head was throbbing and I closed my eyes at the unbearable pain. I shouldn’t have drank that much. I stared at Ace and smiled when I realized how peaceful and angelic he looked.
Far from his bad boy facade.
I slowly unwrapped his arms from around me and froze when he mumbled something. I chuckled slightly when he simply turned and slept again. I made my way to the bathroom and took a shower. I let the warm water relax my body as I wasn’t feeling well. That damn hangover! When I was done, I closed the tap and got out of the shower. That’s when that I realized how stupid I was. I completely forgot to take clothes to wear! I dried my body and wrapped the towel around me. I slowly opened the door and peek to see whether Ace was still sleeping. And he was. I slowly stepped out of the bathroom and walked to wardrobe on the tip of my toes. I opened mg wardrobe and pulled a random dress from it. I picked up clean underwear and turned to go back to the bathroom.
“Fuck!” I heard a curse and my heard snap to Ace’s direction. He wasn’t sleeping anymore and his gray eyes turned a few shades sharker.
Fifty Shades of Gray! Ironic, isn’t it?
“Stop looking!” I exclaimed and tightened my grip on the towel.
“Hell! I thought I was dreaming!” he groaned and I didn’t realize why until my eyes fell on the budge in his pants. My cheeks reddened and I ran in the bathroom. What the hell! I had that effect on him? I put on my clothes and stood in the bathroom with red cheeks. Damn, How was I going to face him? I bite the inside of my cheeks in nervousness and a little giggle escape my mouth when I thought about what just happened. I slowly opened the door and peeked to see whether he was still here. He was not. I got out of the room and walked downstairs. Maybe he returned back home.
“Mom” Ace groaned. “I’m in the house next to yours” he now said monotonously. I walked to the kitchen where I saw him in front of the pan. Am I fucking dreaming? The bad boy is making pancakes! The bad boy knows cooking! “No, Mom!” Ace whined. “We’re not dating!” he exclaimed in disbelief and flip the pancake like a pro. He then huffed and ended the call.
“No mom! We’re not dating!” I mimicked him as I hopped on the chair and watched as he turned to look at me with a smirk. I smirked back and shrugged.
“You were listening?” he asked with rose eyebrows. No one had the right to be that hot. I took a deep breath and shrugged again.
“When I was walking in the kitchen, I heard you talking” I simply replied and leant on the kitchen. He was sure a great sight when he was focusing. He had that little frown on his face which would make him look so handsome. “Since when do the bad boy cook?” I asked teasingly and he shrugged with a smile playing on his face.
“Can’t a bad boy cook?” he asked and put the pancake on a plate before turning off the gas. He put pancakes on a plate and pushed it towards me. A smile quickly appeared on my face.
“Thank you!” I squealed and started eating while he took a seat in front of me. He started eating too and then he stopped.
“I used the bathroom of the guestroom” he said and I looked at him not knowing what to say.
“And?” I urged. He smirked and shook his head in disbelief.
“Daniel and Rachel is sleeping on the same bed” he said with a pointed look and I stared at him.
“So what?” I questioned.
"They were sleeping on the same bed!” he repeated and I placed a piece of his pancake in my mouth. Shit! That was heaven in my mouth.
“That’s really good!” I praised and watched as he smiled sincerely.
“I know” he responded cockily and I rolled my eyes. Here he comes again. “So back to the Daniel and Rachel thing. What’s wrong with them sleeping in the same bed?” I asked and he shrugged. “We were sleeping on the same bed too” I pointed out as he smiled.
“Never took you to be a cuddler” he joked as my eyes widened and I gulped.
“Can say the same about you” I backfired and he chuckled. We were both making as if nothing happened earlier and I could feel everything turning awkward. “About this morning” I started hesitantly and he groaned while placing his head on his arm and leant against the table.
“There’s nothing to talk about” he said. “It’s a normal reaction when you see a naked girl walking in a room” he explained and I playfully slapped his arm.
“I wasn’t naked!” I exclaimed. “I had a towel wrapped around me”
“You were naked underneath” he said and I stared at him in disbelief.
“You’re naked underneath your clothes too” I retorted while he chuckled.
“About Rachel, she was wearing Daniel’s shirt” he said and I nearly choked my food. I pulled away from the table and hopped off the chair. I ran to the room with Ace following behind me. I slowly opened the door and saw that Daniel had his arms wrapped around Rachel. Daniel didn’t have a shirt on and the blanket was covering half of their bodies. I sighed, silently hoping that they didn’t sleep together. It was cute. But I didn’t want Rachel to end up with a player.
“Do you think they did it?” I asked as I closed the door with my back resting against it.
“You mean sex?” he asked bluntly and I glared at him.
“Yes, sex” I said and walked back to the kitchen.
“Daniel wasn’t drunk yesterday” Ace told me and a frown appeared on his face. “He wouldn’t have sex with an intoxicated girl” he said sincerely but still, even though his words reassured me a bit, I needed to hear it from Daniel itself.
“So what’s the plan for today?” I asked as we faced each other again.
“I have a thing to do” he said and I nodded.
“A thing?” I questioned and he nodded.
“What thing?” I asked curiously.
“Personal” he replied and I silently cursed him in my head. I mean, come on! I told him my whole life and he’s here being all mysterious and shit.
“Let me rephrase it” I said with a smirk. “You’ve got a girl to do” I said and even though I wanted to frown, I keep a smile on my face. He shrugged making my heart break a little bit. Okay, not a little bit!
“Maybe ” he said, a frown still playing on his face.
“Who’s she?” I asked with a fake smile. I hated what I felt for him. Even with all the barriers I’ve been placing around my heart, without even trying, Ace has broken them.
“Why? Jealous?” he asked with a smirk. Yes.
“No” I replied with a scoff. “I’m just pitying the poor girl” I said and he flicked my forehead in amusement.
“You’re way too rude” he complained and I shrugged.
“I try” I replied and chuckled when he narrowed his eyes at me.
“You’d die to have a date with me” he said cockily and I scoff again.
“I’d die If I had a date with you” I corrected. He simply shook his head and smiled. As he moved his head, my eyes darted to the hickey I gave him yesterday. “You’ll need to hide this” I told him while pointing to the hickey.
“Shit” he cursed. “My mother will think that we’re dating” he said and I stared at him not saying a word. I don’t know whether I should feel hurt that he didn’t want his mom to think that he’s dating me. I feel like a piece of crap right now but I took a deep breath and rolled my eyes. “You know, if I have one, it will be only fair if you have one too” he said now a smirk playing on his face.
“No fucking way” I exclaimed and glared at him. “It was a dare” I pointed out and watched as he slowly and seductively made his way towards me. “W-what?” I stuttered as he pulled me to him making me crash into his chest. “Don’t do that” I said hesitantly.
“I’m a bad boy” he chuckled as he buried his face in my neck making my eyes close and his breathe made goosebumps rose on my skin. “And bad boys do whatever they want” he continued. I bit my lips when suddenly he bit gently on my skin.
“A-ace” I moaned when his tongue met my skin. Goosebumps rose on my skin and I shivered.
“Say my name again” he ordered huskily and I pulled away to see his eyes darkening and I could feel a budge pressed against me making my eyes widened.
“Don’t do that and stop pressing yourself against me” I said with a tint of red on my cheeks and he smirked. He buried his face in my neck and bite my skin making me yelp. He chuckled as I wrapped my arms around his neck in the rush of emotions and pleasure running in my body. He sucked on my skin resulting in me moaning out loud.
“It’s a normal reaction and Stop moaning or I’ll kiss you” he warned and groaned.
“Then stop doing that” I groaned and he chuckled.
“I’m done” he said and pulled away. Just then, he pecked my cheeks making me blush slightly. I ran to the bathroom and stood in front of the mirror and stared at the purple spot in horror. I can’t deny the fact that I could feel sparks in my stomach as I was wearing Ace Carter’s love bite.
“Ace Fucking Carter!” I shouted and ran back to the kitchen to find him smirking at his Art.
