06| man-child


A week has passed since I've been down here in California. If my first meeting with my biological father didn't prove he was an asswipe then this past week has proved he is nothing but a dick and Claire well she thinks she's better than everybody. If it wasn't for Drew it's no telling what I'd be doing - I know one thing for sure though I would be going insane... If not in jail.

Sighing I look over at the clock on the nightstand to see it's five past seven ‘o clock in the morning. Standing I head toward the bathroom to shower, after showering and shaving I rub my body down with cherry vanilla body lotion before slipping on a pair of black lace undies with a red bow, I discard the bra since the black tank I'm going to be wearing has a built-in bra. I slip on a pair of black cut off jean shorts and the tank top before sliding on a pair of black and red flip flops. I run a brush through my still slightly damp hair before deciding I'm ready, glancing at the clock I see that it is 7:45, Drew should be here shortly to pick me up.

I head downstairs hoping, no scratch that praying I don't run into Westley or Claire. Now, Rosa, I don't mind I enjoy her company.

I'm halfway to the door when I hear Westley's voice, “Where are you going this early?” I turn around and say, “Out.” He sighs, “I thought that maybe we could go out and have breakfast, just you and me.”

Not in this lifetime or the next

“Sorry maybe another time,” I answer back before heading outside to wait on Drew.

Not even a minute later Drew's black Chrysler 300 pulls in, I rush over and hop into the passenger seat.

“Morning love.”

After buckling I send Drew a smile, “Morning.”

“So I thought I'd show you around some more after we eat.”

I look at him and question, “I thought you already showed me around everywhere. ”

“I have except for one place. ” he gives me a secretive smile and I feel that dang fluttering in my stomach again, every time he smiles or looks at me I get a fluttery feeling in my stomach.

While he drives I take in his appearance, his jet black hair reaches his neck where it then curls, he's wearing a black t-shirt that fits him perfectly, I can see half of his tattoo - what the sleeves not covering which I already know it's a tattoo over roses with splinters and blood dripping - it starts from his shoulder and ends at his wrist - he has a hoop earring in his right ear and a stud in his left, he's got a five ‘o clock shadow where he's not shaved – which I absolutely love, I love the feel of it when he kisses my forehead... I can't help but wonder how it'd feel if he kissed me on the lips with his pink plump kissable lips.

This isn't the first time I've wondered how it would feel to be kissed by him... Sometimes I wonder how it'd feel to – dang it Neveah! Get it together he's your step-uncle!

Even though he's my uncle, well step-uncle I can't help the way I feel when I'm around him. I've never felt the way I feel whenever I'm in his presence – I feel safe, secured, happy and... cherished?

It's scary how much I trust him and I've only known him a week!

It's also scary how much I want him. To feel his lips against mine, his arms around me, his-

Drew groans, “Neveah love..”

“What?” I ask innocently.

“Quit staring at me like that.”

“Like what?”

“Like you want me to fucking devour you.”

I feel my cheeks heat up as my eyes widen and my mouth gapes open. “W-what?” I stutter out stupidly all the while clenching my thighs together trying to stop tingly feeling I had gotten from those eight words.. mainly the last three fucking devour you...

“You heard m,e love,” he smirks devilishly at me before switching his gaze back on the road.

I look away from him and out the window, staring at the passing scenery. When suddenly I feel a hand land on my knee, his thumb rubbing back and forth – the feeling of his callouses against my soft skin sends electrical shocks throughout my body.

“What are you doing?” I ask, looking from his hand on my bare knee and over to his face. “Whatever do you mean?” he questions all too innocently taking his attention off the road for just a moment to look at me.

I huff, “You know what I'm talking about.” maybe I'm making too big of a deal out of his hand is on the knee but you would be too! If you felt sparks rush through you and butterflies to swarm in your belly at the itsy bitsy tiny touch!

He chuckles and moves his hand.

“We're here.”

I look to see where ‘here’ is and grin when I see ‘here’ is the small restaurant well diner more like it since it's called – Mary's Diner – I've come here almost every day since I've been in California. Well Drew brought me here, he comes and picks me up from Westley the dick and Claire the bitches house - excuse my foul language but that's how I see them - and brings me here for breakfast, lunch or dinner according to what time it is he picks me up.

I smile big and let out a giggle while clapping my hands and doing a dance in the seat.

Drew looks at me like I'm from another planet before guffawing loudly.

He laughs so hard tears glisten in his eyes.

“Haha, I'm not that funny.” I mumble rolling my eyes, “Yes... Yes, you are.” he says through his laughter, “you should've seen you..”

“Whatever,” I mutter crossing my arms over my chest and poking out my bottom lip.

“Are you done yet?” I asked glaring at him.

He nods and straightens up from his bent position, “yeah, I'm-” laughter spills from his kissable lips and I huff again, “Ugh! You act like a freaking child instead of a grown man!” I open the door and get out - well try to but end up being half out and half in since I'm still buckled. Drew starts guffawing loudly again and I let out a string of curse words that would've gotten me a slap on the mouth from my mama.

“Hey, no cursing! ”

Drew says making me roll my eyes and huff yet again, “You are such a man-child!”

Yes, I called him a man-child, cause he acts like one - one minute he's all childish and the next all grown-ish.
