Cheap Hotels and Saving Jess
“Mmmh yes baby! Right there.”
“You like that babe?”
“Can you both fucking stop! This is not a porn hub.“, I whisper yelled at the couple who were all over themselves. I mean it is literally 1 in the morning and goddess knows what they are doing under the blanket.
“Why, you got something better to offer?“, the man turned his head towards me and asked with a wink.
He literally has a woman in his lap! I made the most disgusted face and answered, “As a matter of fact, I do!“.
I showed him my middle finger and warned them, “Don’t make me call the flight attendant again.”
I swung my bag over my shoulder and pushed my way between the couple, purposely shoving their shoulders. They gasped but I ignored them. Serves them right for ruining my journey.
The flight attendant standing at the exit of the flight smiled apologetically at me. I had to call her twice to get the horny couple to calm down.
I walked through the jet bridge along with the other people I was on flight with. I was extremely exhausted after that one day flight.
The airport was very busy but I sensed no threat nor did I smell any other wolf. The only people I am worried about are the rogues. Since this is a no man’s land there is a possibility that I might encounter a rogue.
I was walking thought the airport finding my way out when I noticed people giving me second glances with wide eyes.
I pulled my hood on and put on my shades. The shades looked stupid because it was literally eight in the night.
I instantly regretted wearing a hoodie after I walked out of the airport of Sydney. The intensive humidity of Sydney welcomed me with open arms.
I walked towards the cab stand and stood in the line behind an old lady. The line moved pretty fast even though there were a lot of people ahead of me.
“G’day miss, where might I take you?“, The old man driving the cab asked in a heavily accented voice.
I sat in and answered, “I was hoping you would help me with that. It would be wonderful if you would take me to some cheap hotels or motels.”
“There is an area, a few miles away from Bondi beach. I’m sure you would find some place to stay at a convenient rate.”
“Yeah sure. Take me there.”
The ride was silent without the man asking me any questions and I was very glad of it because I don’t have any cover story yet.
The man slowed down the car after driving for about thirty minutes and I saw several buildings and motels come into view.
I decided to stop the cab not wanting to spend more on the fare. I paid the man and got out of the cab.
(A/n: This is a place of my imagination. I have no idea if this exists in real life.)
There were a few people walking down the streets and almost no cars considering the fact that this is a place for tourists.
I roamed about and checked two hotels but they turned out to be expensive. I decided to walk further away making endless rights and lefts.
After walking for about twenty minutes, I came across a run-down hotel. The paint was washing off and there were a few cracks here and there. I mean there is no way this place could charge me something that would make a dent in my wad of cash.
I walked inside and found myself standing in front of the reception. There was a man dozed off in a chair behind the reception.
I cleared my throat and coughed. That was enough to jolt him awake. I gave him a minute as he rubbed his eyes and looked up at me. He stared at me for a second, checking me out.
“Hello dear, how may I help you?“, He asked with a grin.
I cringed internally at the sight of his rotten yellow teeth. He probably thinks I’m some innocent rebel teen running away from her parents. As crazy as it sounds, he’s the least of my worries. I mean even if he tries anything, I don’t think he’ll get very far.
“Do you have any available rooms?“, I asked him tapping my feet impatiently.
“How much do you charge?”
“22 dollars for a night.”
“I plan on staying for a month, think you can go down?”
“I mean I’m sure we can arrange something.“, He said in a suggestive tone.
I just stared at him blankly.
“I can go down to 20 not less than that.”
I thought for a moment and then nodded my head.
“I want to see the room.”
He grabbed a pair of keys and gestured for me to follow.
We walked up the creaky stairs to the first floor and he opened one of the four doors.
The room had a stinky smell which was worse because of my heightened senses. There was a small bed and a chair beside it. There was a small closet in the corner of the room. The bathroom was small with a toilet, a washbasin and a shower. Overall, the room was below average but then again beggars can’t be choosers.
I walked out of the bathroom and towards the creepy guy as he waited outside the door.
“How do I pay?“, I asked him.
“A week’s advance for every week.”
I turned around and removed 140 dollars from my bag.
I handed that to him and he handed over the keys to me.
“Is there a food joint anywhere here?”
“There is a macca’s five blocks ahead of here and there are other food joints a few blocks further away from it.”
“Macca’s?“, I asked him.
“Was it- uh Mcdonalds as you Americans call it?“, He answered.
I nodded my head in understanding but froze when I thought about how he knew I was American.
“Your accent.“, He answered my unanswered question.
“I can give you a ride to the mcdonalds, doll and maybe after that you can ride my-”
“No thanks.“, I rudely declined his offer and slammed the door in his face.
I placed my bag down on the bed and went inside the washroom to freshen up. I switched my hoodie for a simple t shirt.
I grabbed my bag and walked out of the room.
Surely enough I found the mcdonalds after following his directions.
There were a few people as I walked in. I kept my head down and walked near the counter.
“What may I get-“, He stopped mid sentence when he looked up. His eyes widened as he stared at me.
“Hi, I would like the 10 pc chicken nugget, a big mac and an oreo mcflurry.”
“Yeah-uh sure.“, He stuttered out and the tip of his ears and nose turned red in embarrassment.
I paid for my order and sat down in one of the corner booths. I could feel someone occasionally staring at me but I ignored them and stared out of the window. I closed my eyes and tried to contact my wolf but she shut me out. I clenched my hands in frustration but calmed down saying that she needs more time.
I quickly finished my meal and set out walking again, ready to put a rest to this day.
The streets were completely deserted now and the only company I had now was of the street lights.
I was halfway through my walk back to the hotel when I heard muffled screams and my ears picked up the sound of shuffling.
I followed the source of sound and it got louder as I entered the dark and dingy alleyway. I kept walking and the screams got louder when I finally found myself standing before four drunk guys and two of them were manhandling a girl. One of them pinned her hands behind her back and another muffled her mouth. The other two kept laughing as she tried thrashing around.
“Come on, girl, we just want to have fun. I promise we will have fun.“, The man muffling her mouth said and placed a sloppy kiss on her neck.
“Why don’t I show you a good time?“, I called out loudly walking towards them.
All of their heads turned towards me.
“Seems like we’re getting even more lucky tonight, Dom.“, The one who had a liquor bottle in his hand slurred.
“This one looks very exotic, mate.”
The other two who were standing nearby walked towards me.
“You made a mistake getting yourself involved girly now pay the price.“, The one who was muffling the girl said and a crooked smirk settled on his face.
“Really? I would like to think otherwise.“, I said cracking my knuckles.
I took two steps forward and swung my fist across the guy’s jaw as he came towards me. He doubled over as I threw two hard punches in his gut. I kicked the second guy in the shin and he groaned out loudly but still raised his hand to punch me. I stopped his lousy punch halfway and punched him in the nose. He stumbled back clutching his nose which was now dripping in blood.
“Pray to god I don’t see your ugly faces again or goddess help me I will leave you so fucked up you’ll be begging me to kill you.
The guy threw me a fearful glance and helped up the first guy who was now lying on the ground holding his stomach. He turned around fast walked out of the alleyway with his friend. The other two who were holding the girl were already running out of the alley with their tail tucked between their legs.
The girl stood in the spot with her arms around her trembling body and her head cast down.
I approached her carefully and spoke softly,” It’s okay. They ran away. You’re safe now.”
She slowly lifted her head and I saw her tear filled hazel eyes. She threw her arms around me and hugged me tightly. She was short compared to my 5′10 frame. I rubbed my hand against her back in a soothing manner as she cried.
Her cries slowly died down after a few minutes and she pulled back wiping her face. A small kind smile settled on her lips and she spoke in a very melodic and soft voice, “Thank you. I don’t know what I would have done if it weren’t for you. Probably..”
“Hey it’s fine. They won’t bother you again. Come on let’s get out of this alley.”
She nodded and followed my lead.
“I’m Jessica.“, She spoke as we stood on the sidewalk and I took a good look at her.
Jessica was very beautiful with tan skin and hazel eyes. She had shoulder length straight dark brown hair and a curvy body. She was what you would call as a thick girl with a little fat here and there but that made her even more gorgeous. She had voluptuous breasts and a good ass. Jessica was not a girl but a woman with a killer body.
“I’m Rose.“, I decided not to go with Scarlet just as a precaution.
“You’re very pretty, Rose.“, She said with a shy smile.
“Thank you, Jess. I can totally see why those douchebags pulled you into the alley. Man I would kill for your body!“, I grinned at her. It’s true, I tried to eat a lot of junk food to fill my curves but our metabolism is built in such a way that it’s difficult to store the fat in our body because it gets burned almost immediately.
“Thank you.“, She mumbled and I could see a blush spreading across her cheeks.
“Are you new here, Rose?“, She asked me.
“Yes. I just came today.”
“Are you visiting someone or are you here to stay?”
“I plan on staying for a while.”
“Well then, welcome to Sydney. I hope you like it here.“, She smiled at me.
I am so glad she didn’t ask any questions about why I’m here.
“I would love to be your friend, Jess. I have a feeling we would get along very well.”
She seemed very happy and a huge smile broke out on her face,” I would love that too, Rose. Maybe I can take you to the beach tomorrow.”
“Yes, that would be lovely.”
“Where are you staying?”
“There is this run down hotel at the end of the next street. I forgot it’s name. ”
“The one with the cracks?”
I nodded my head.
“Perfect! I live two blocks away from you. We can meet up at maybe two. My shift starts at five so we have plenty of time before that.”
“Where do you work?”
“I work as a cook at the Willy’s shack. It’s at the beach. It’s pays me enough to look after my bills.“, She said in a shy voice.
“That’s cool.“, I said with a smile.
We started walking down the street until we reached my hotel.
“So, I’ll meet you at two outside your hotel tomorrow?“, She asked me and I nodded my head.
“Good night, Rose. Once again thank you for coming to my help. Most people would have ignored the hustle but you came and I will always be grateful for that.”
“You have to stop mentioning that if you want us to be friends, Jess.“, I joked and she smiled.
She hugged me and walked inside the decent looking building.
I walked towards my hotel, tired after the long day but happy at the same time.
Maybe this won’t be as bad as I expect it to be.
I know I haven’t updated in a month so to make up for it, I’m updating two chapters!
