I walked into Hayden’s party with my hands shoved in my pockets. I looked around pushing my shaggy, black hair out of my eyes. I immediately noticed the eyes of almost every female in the room looking at me. Girls are drawn to the bad boy look I give off, but I’m really a nice guy. Or at least I’d like to think so. I mean, I do smoke and drink but that doesn’t mean that I don’t care about other people’s feelings. It doesn’t mean that I can’t love.
I glanced around the room before I headed down the hallway towards the last bedroom. I opened the door and shut it behind me quickly before locking it. When I turned around I felt lips on mine in a passionate and hungry kiss. I pulled back and smiled, tugging on my lip ring with my teeth. “Miss me already?” I teased as I looked at the one who has been plaguing my thoughts night after night since our first encounter.
“You know I have. How could I not?” Easton smiled back at me running his fingers through my shaggy hair.
I pulled him back, claiming his lips in a searing kiss. I couldn’t get enough of him. I always knew that I liked girls, but I never knew that I could crave a man’s touch this much...well, only Easton’s touch really. I didn’t realize that I could possibly be bisexual till the day that I saw one of Easton’s flings talk down to him like he was nothing.
I was walking down the hallway, 10 minutes late for class already when I heard yelling coming from one of the supply closets. I’m not one of those guys that gossip, but it doesn’t mean that I don’t like to know everyone else’s drama. I walked towards the closed door and put my ear against it.
“I can’t fucking do this anymore. I’m not a fag.” I listened, knowing that was Brad Fuller’s voice.
“You mean you’re not into guys anymore, huh?... So your dick doesn’t get hard when I jerk you off? Or what about when you cum yelling my name?” I listened, recognizing Easton Marlar’s voice laughing humorlessly.
“You don’t know what you’re talking about. I changed my mind, I’m not into it anymore.”
“Is this about what your football friends are saying? Are you ashamed to be with me or something?” Easton asked, sounding hurt. Shit, I know I shouldn’t be listening in on their conversation.
“Be with you?! Are you fucking kidding me? ‘We’ are nothing Easton, get that through your head. This is over. Don’t talk to me again unless you want me to tell everybody that you’re a fag.” I heard the door opening and quickly stepped back out of the way.
“Yeah?! Well, at least I’ll admit to who I really am. It doesn’t change a single thing about me regardless.” Easton yelled as Brad walked out of the supply closet. His eyes met mine as I stood back into the line of view of the open doorway.
“He’s a dick. He doesn’t deserve you,” I said looking at Easton who had an angry look on his face, breathing hard.
“Yeah, well, it looks like nobody wants me regardless, so…” Easton trailed off, slumping down on the floor.
I walked in and shut the door, sitting down on the floor next to him. “Don’t say that about yourself man. Look, I know we don’t really talk that much but you’re friends with Sebastian so that means that you’re friends with me, okay? I think you seem like a really great guy, plus you’re not bad looking,” I said knocking my shoulder into his while we both laughed.
He looked at me with a sad facial expression, his face just inches apart from mine. “What if I don’t think that I deserve someone else?”
I reached down and intertwined our hands, holding his hand in mine. “I think you deserve more love than you know E,” I said, glancing down at his lips that were mere inches from mine.
Before I knew what I was doing, I leaned in and kissed his lips tentatively. I don’t know why I even did that. I’ve never kissed another guy or even felt remotely attracted to one. But there was just something about Easton that made me feel things when I was around him. He was really attractive, always had a smile on his face, and he just had this vibe about him that made everyone want to be around him 24/7.
I leaned back quickly, realizing that he might not even see me in that way. I was about to get up when I felt his hand drop mine, but my thoughts were quickly cut off when he reached behind my head and pulled me towards him, crashing his lips to mine. He was confident in his kiss, holding my face to his and deepening it. My breathing was picking up along with his while we clung to each other like pieces of velcro.
He finally pulled back, resting his forehead against mine. He looked into my blue eyes while I stared at his hazel ones. I ran my fingers through his wavy, brown hair while he briefly closed his eyes to the feeling. “Well, I could get used to that Finn Michaels.” Easton smiled brightly at me.
None of our friends knew that me and Easton have been seeing each other for the past two months now. It’s not like we’re hiding it but we just want to keep it our little secret for now. Even though no one knows I’m bisexual, it doesn’t mean that I’m ashamed to be with Easton. I would gladly yell it from the rooftops.
I leaned forward kissing him more slowly, savoring the feeling of his lips on mine. I ran my fingers through his wavy hair while his hand slid down my chest. “When are we going to tell people about us?” I asked him.
He smiled, leaning in and kissing me while tugging on my lip ring. “Whenever you want to mi amor.” I smiled shyly at his nickname for me. Easton never shows his sweet, romantic side to anyone else which just makes it that much better to witness. I leaned in, claiming his lips once more before we fell back onto the bed, in a tangle of limbs and clothes.
I stood next to Kaia at the makeshift bar in Hayden’s kitchen watching her lips curl around the rim of the cup, thinking how good they’d look around something else. It’s as if she could hear my thoughts, which I knew she couldn’t since the mating bond wasn’t complete yet. I saw her lips turn into a smirk and my eyes looked up to hers. “Mmmm, what are you thinking about Mr. Casanova?” She teased with an arched eyebrow.
“Just thinking about how beautiful you look tonight. I don’t know why you never wear dresses, you look breathtaking,” I told her, meaning every single word. She smiled one of her rare smiles that I was beginning to get used to. It was one that I’ve only seen her give very few people.
“Mia’s my mate, Asher.” I heard Hayden through our wolf’s mind link. My gaze found him and Mia across the room smiling and laughing together. I have never seen Hayden so happy in his life. Not only has she been his crush for years, but now she’s his mate also.
“I guess they can thank me for that one. I was the one who told Mia how deeply infatuated Hayden is with her,” Kaia said looking at the happy couple. I laughed because it was all thanks to the mating bond, not Kaia’s matchmaking skills.
I looked over towards one of the hallways leading to the bedrooms and saw Easton enter it. I rolled my eyes knowing that he’s probably going to hook up with some guy in there.
“Hey, have you seen Finn anywhere? I needed to ask him if I’m still able to fight at the club on Monday after the mishap last week.” Kaia said in my ear due to the music playing.
“No, but knowing him. He’s probably out back smoking,” I laughed making her roll her eyes.
She got up on her tiptoes to talk in my ear again. “I’m gonna go check to see if he’s outside. Make me a drink.” She winked as she walked towards the back door of the house, swaying her hips along the way.
Did you see that coming with Finn and Easton? ;)
Also, let’s just say that shit is going down next chapter so prepare yourselves.
