Christmas was finally over,which I was thankful for. It definitely wasn't one I wanted to remember that's for sure.
My Dad wasn't happy with me,after the events of Christmas eve. In his eyes I'm still his little Girl. Christmas Day together we barely said two words to each other,neither one of us were willing to make the first move.My Mom always says that I get my stubbornness from him,I think she's right about that.
Today is New Year's Eve,instead of going out and Celebrating the start of a new year I decided to stay home and behave. A lot has been going on the past few weeks,between dating Ryan and sleeping with my Boss my head is all over the place. I need to focus on finding a new job.. fast. I've already handed in my resignation at Knight & Son.
I was curled up on my couch,with a soppy Movie on the TV and a glass of wine by my side.Ryan had been texting in hopes that I would spend the New Year's with him.
I kind of lied and told him that I was sick and I just needed to stay home and sleep through it. I know..I'm so bad. He's a nice Guy and he doesn't deserved to be lied to, but I didn't know what else to do.
I heard the noise of Carmen's heels as she walked into our open concept living/Kitchen area.She was dressed up in a silver strapless dress,ready for her New Year's Date.
"How do I look?"She asked,before striking a pose trying to be funny.
I smiled."You look stunning. I had a feeling that dress would be perfect for tonight."
"Well I think it would better on the person who owns it."She winked at me."I feel bad leaving you home alone on New Years Eve. You should be going out and wearing this dress."
"It looks better on you."I picked up my wine glass."I'm happy staying in tonight, it's what I need.I need to start the year Fresh,that begins with finding a new Job."
She sat down on the couch beside me."Are you sure you don't want to ask Mason Knight for your job back?"
"I can't,the damage is already done. I've already emailed him my full resignation this morning.I don't know if I'll have to work a notice..I hope I don't."
"I guess that's that then."Carmen took my wine glass from my hand and drank."At least it will keep your Dad off your back."
"That man sure knows how to sulk."
Carmen stood from the couch when a knock came to our front door."That must be my Date."She handed me my wine glass and hugged me."Happy New Year,Hon."
"You too. I'll see you in the morning."
Carmen grabbed her coat and clutch from the chair before leaving the living room. After pinning after this Guy at work for weeks,she's finally getting her date with him.Being the good friend she offered to stay home with me and go out another night,but I couldn't let her do that.
"There's someone here to see you,Jamie. I'm going to let him in."Carmen shouted down the hall."See you tomorrow."
Someone is here to see me..Who? Possibly my Dad decided to apologise for Christmas Eve.As I heard the front door close and footsteps down the hall,I stood waiting to see who it was.
My heart started to pound in my chest when his face came into sight."Fuck!!"
"It's nice to see you too,Jamie."Mason was dressed in a pair of black suit trousers and a fitted white shirt,hot enough to tease even though I was still angry.
"Mason.."I paused,trying to choose my next words carefully."What are you doing here?"In my apartment of all places.
He sighed."You handed in your Resignation.You really didn't think that I was going to let that happen,Did you?"
I folded my arms over my chest."Well I thought it was for the best given everything that happened. Is that the reason why you're here..On New Year's Eve?"I'm sure there's a lot of other places he could be tonight rather than in my apartment,partying with women more his type maybe.
"I want you back at work,you've been the best assistant I've had and I need you." Mason held up a brown take away bag."I also brought dinner,think of it as my way of apologising."
I shrugged my shoulder."Or maybe you could just say Sorry."
He walked into my space and moved a strand of my brunette hair back from my face."I'm sorry,Jamie."He whispered."Now will you come back and work for me?"
"I don't know. I'll think about it."I hated having him so close,it was a tease to every part of my body.I didn't think I'd want him so bad after what happened,but I do.
"Maybe dinner will help you change your mind."He handed me the take out bag."I'll get the plates..Why don't you sit."
He's taking care of me in my own apartment,I guess I better not argue with the man.I know how much he likes to be in control.I sat down on the couch and placed the take out bag on the table in front of me. I was feeling a little mortified that Mason was in my space and I was sitting here looking like a slob in a matching Red pyjama top and shorts.
I was fixing myself up when he walked back into the living room with plates and cutlery in one hand,and a bottle of wine and a wine glass in the other.Me drinking wine around him is a recipe for disaster.
"Are you self conscious about what you're wearing around me?Because you don't need to be,I like you in red."He smirked, before setting everything down on the table.
"Well I wasn't expecting company tonight,I was planning on staying home and spending the New Years alone."I opened the bottle and poured a drink for us both.
"Well it's lucky I showed up then.No one should spend New Year's alone,Jamie." Mason handed me my vegetarian dish on a plate."Eat up."
I took it from him,and looked at the face I desperately wanted to kiss.What the fuck is going on between us?
Twice we've slept together,breaking his rules so he could have another night with me.I thought that was it..But now he's here in my apartment having dinner and drinking wine on New Year's Eve.
Have I changed him?
He surprised me with a meal that I loved and now I was on my second glass of Red.
I'm beginning to think he might enjoy my company,Mason is still sitting on my couch an hour later and he didn't look like he was planning on leaving anytime soon.
"I figured you would have had plans tonight,maybe with a blonde woman perhaps."
"I'm right where I want to be."He turned on the couch and looked at me."So you're coming back to work for me?"
"You're very persistent."I said,before bringing my glass of Red to my lips.
He smirked."I'm a man that always gets what he wants,I want you back at the office.I don't like taking No for an answer."
"Is that all you want from me?"Panic had set in straight after I asked him, usually I wouldn't be so forward but he was confusing me."You're here in my apartment on New Year's Eve,having dinner and drinking wine when you could be spending it with anyone else."
"You know that's not all I want from you."He leaned forward and set his lips on mine with passion.As he kissed me,he moved his hand up my neck and into my hair.
I heard a knock on my front door and I pulled back from the kiss. I wasn't expecting anyone tonight.Maybe it is my Dad coming to apologise after all,but I certainly hope it's not.
"Are you expecting someone?"
"No,I'll go see who it is."I got up from the couch and left the living area.I walked the hallway towards the front door and looked through the peephole.
It's Ryan..He's here..and Mason is sitting in my living room waiting for me with a massive erection. I told him that I was sick,I didn't think he would still stop by. I told him I was contagious.
Ryan knocked at the door again. I think I better just open up and talk to him. I no longer needed to act sick, my stomach was in knots over the situation.I opened up the door and looked at him."Ryan..Hi!"
He smiled,looking cute in hid plaid shirt and his dark wash jeans.He even had a Christmas Hat on his head."Jamie,How are you feeling?"
"Not great,I was asleep."I sniffled, pretending that my nose was runny. I was feeling the guilt of all my lies."I didn't think you were stopping by.
"You couldn't come out to dinner with me,I figured I would at least bring you soup."He reached his hand out and placed his palm on my head. "You're a little warm,You should take something."
I cleared my throat."Um,I will. But the soup you brought will definitely help."
Ryan extended his hand forward and handed me the soup. When he did his eyes were fixed behind me,giving me a bad feeling in my stomach.I turned around and saw Mason standing in the hallway,hands in the pockets of his trousers and looking at us.
I turned around and looked at Ryan, feeling all the blood drain from my face."Ryan,I can explain."
"No need,I think I understand what's going on here."He gave me a look that I've never seen on him before."Enjoy your soup."He walked down the hallway.
"Ryan,Please!"I called after him but he didn't even turn around. I guess I can't really blame him for that.I closed the door,turned around and looked at Mason."Why the hell did you do that?"
"Come on,it was obvious you weren't into that Guy.I did you a Favour..And him."
"You mean you did yourself a favour by getting him out of the way.What's going on here,Mason? Between You and I?..Do you have a problem with me seeing someone?"
Let's be real here,he's never liked the idea of me with Ryan. Going by his comment on the couch,he wants more of me. Just one more time? NO, That's what he said the last time.
"You know it is."He walked down the hallway towards me.Mason stood in front of me,his fingers skimming my inner thigh."I want you all to myself."
He moved my little tartan shorts and my lace panties to the side,before moving his fingers towards my opening and pushing them inside of me. I gasped at the sudden rush of pleasure.I was angry at him..How did this happen? It's like he has me under some sort of spell that makes me unable to resist him.
"Let's go to your room."Mason whispered,against my lips.
My Room? When we were getting hot and heavy in his apartment,he told me that he didn't bring women to his room. I figured it was the same for my room too."Hmm,I thought that was a rule of yours?"
"Fuck the rule,I want you."He picked me up in his arms,my ass cheeks spreading apart and my tartan shorts moving even further up my legs.
Mason Knight is breaking yet another rule for me,surely this means something. All I know right now though is that I'm going to be in for one hell of a night.
