"Are you sure? I felt like you didn't enjoy it much and you were mentally somewhere else," he stated with a small chuckle and I noticed him, shaking his leg in nervousness.
"Ummm....this is my first date and I guess I was just nervous. I'm really sorry if I ruined your evening," I apologised in a sincere tone and he shook his head lightly.
"You don't have to apologise at all. I should have made this date more interesting and exciting for you." He let out a small pout and I felt so bad. It would have been the best date if I had put my heart and soul into it and I didn't want him to be hard on himself.
"It was the best first date, Simon."
"Well, I might actually believe you since there was literally no competition." He joked, making me laugh a bit.
"That's true. Thanks again," I smiled and leaned in to kiss his cheeks.
I owed him that much atleast.
"Do I get a second date?" he asked as soon as I pulled back with a hopeful look in his eyes.
"Yeah...umm, I'll call you when I'm free." I replied but that was a lie.
I don't think I'll be calling him anytime soon.
"Perfect." He gave me a toothy grin and opened the car door for me to step up. I gave him a one last hug before we said our goodbyes and I started walking towards the elevator of my building.
I was anxious to face Ray and I wasn't sure if he would be up as it was almost midnight by the time I made my way towards the door. I pulled out my key from my purse and unlocked the door slowly.
Once I stepped inside, I tip-toed towards the living room only to find him asleep on the couch. I was able to see his face from the faint glow of his laptop screen that was seated on the coffee table and left out a soft sigh. He looked so beautiful and peaceful. I must have looked like a creep, standing there and watching him sleep.
Thought he made my heart ache, I couldn't help but smile, looking at his sleeping form. I may never be his girlfriend but he still wanted to kiss me.
Ray Anderson, my hot roommate wanted to kiss me.
Guess, I wasn't that unattractive after all.
I made my way towards the kitchen to get myself a glass of water and just when I was about to drink the water, I heard some groaning and rustling from the living room. I rushed outside in panic and found him, twisting and turning in his sleep with a pained expression on his face.
"No, it's my fault. I did this." He started to talk but I noticed that he was still asleep. I stood frozen in my spot, unable to react.
What was happening right now?
Was he a sleep talker?
"I should have been careful. I'm so sorry." He continued and started to shake his head.
"Nooo! Let me go," He started to scream, making me jerk a little and that's when I realised that he was having a nightmare. I went a bit closer and sat down beside him on the couch unsure of what to do. My hands were shaking and I was so absolutely clueless. He was covered in sweat and I noticed a few drops of tears spilling from his corner of his eyes.
Oh my God!
"Ray! Wake up," I started to shake him but he wouldn't wake up.
"Ray, it's me Ridhi. You are scaring me. Please wake up." I shook him so hard that he gripped my wrist tightly before fluttering his eyes open.
"Hey, look at me. It's just a bad dream. I'm right here." I wiped his face and made him focus on me.
"Can you hear me, Ray?"
He blinked a few times before letting go of my wrist and sat up straight on the couch.
"What happened? What are you doing here?" he asked with a confused look on his face.
"I ju--just came home and you were having a nightmare I think. I--I didn't know what to do so I t--tried to wake you up," I stuttered, looking all over his face as I wanted to make sure that he was feeling alright.
He remained silent and looked like he was lost in his thoughts. He ran his fingers through his messy hair and rubbed his face but never spoke a word.
"Fuck, I was so scared. Wait, let me get you a glass of water first," I stood up from the couch and as I was walking back inside the kitchen, I heard a loud bang from behind and turned around to find him nowhere in sight. I realised that he had disappeared inside his room.
My mind was filled with so many questions and I was worried sick about him.
Does he often have nightmares?
Or was this the first time?
What was the nightmare about that made him cry?
Does it have anything to do with the drugs his friend gave him the other day?
I didn't care that we had a fight earlier. I just wanted to be there for him as a friend. I took a deep breath and darted towards his room.
I stood in front of his door and lifted my hand, ready to knock but paused as I was not sure if it was the right thing to do.
What if he wants to be alone?
What if he scolds me and tells me to fuck off?
Oh God! I decided to go ahead and knock as my stubborn ass was not going to give up.
"Ray, I know we just had a fight and you are mad at me but please open the door."
"I just want to make sure you are alright. You can be mad at me later. Please just open the door or atleast let me know that you are fine,"
I thought for a while wondering what to say to get him to talk or open the door.
"Umm...well, if it makes you feel any better, the date didn't go well and I guess I should have just stayed at ho-"
Before I could finish my sentence, the door swung open and he grabbed my face, taking me completely off guard and before I could register what was happening, he pressed his lips against mine and I think I just die a little, went to heaven and came back.
He pushed me against the wall and started to kiss me hard, running his hands all over my body until they rested on my hips while I thew my hands around his neck and tried to hold on to him as he continued to devour my mouth. He tasted like coffee and mint and everything I hoped he would taste like and I wasn't even sure if this was happening for real or was this all a dream.
What if I'm a bad kisser?
Was he even enjoying it?
"Did he kiss you?" he asked after pulling back a bit and resting his forehead against mine. All I could do was shake my head as I was still trying to process the fact that I was being kissed by the hottest guy ever.
"Good, do you want me to continue?" He asked and I flicked my eyes to met his burning gaze. I felt him intake a deep breath and I swallowed hard before I opened my mouth to speak.
"Only if you want to," I whispered and that was all he needed to hear before he pushed himself against me and continued to kiss me by nibbling my lips and he swiped his tongue against my lower lip as if he was asking for entrance which I gladly gave and he slid his tongue inside my mouth which made me moan a little.
"Do you have any idea how long I've been wanting to do this?" he whispered against my lips and it was like my entire body was electrified by his touch and everything was so fucking intense.
The way I've been feeling around him so long was nothing compared to what I was actually feeling right now.
"Worth the fucking wait. Did he make you feel this way, Ridhi?" he asked, kissing my chin and I could feel his hands gripping my waist tightly. My pussy was getting wet with every passing second and I swear I've never felt this vulnerable in my life.
I needed him.
I needed him like the air I breathed.
And I didn't want this moment to end ever.
"No! Oh God, Ray!" I moaned out his name as he continued to kiss down my neck and I found myself, melting against his body. I just wanted him to take me right then and there.
"God, you smell so fucking good," he spoke against my neck and his hands slowly went up to my breasts. He cupped it lightly as if he was afraid to touch me. I ran my fingers through his hair and pushed myself against him, indicating that I wanted this as badly as he did.
He squeezed my boobs, making me throw my head back in ecstasy.
"Oh my God!" I moaned outloud and bit my lip, trying to hold back my moans.
"Jesus Christ," he stopped and pulled back a little.
What the hell?
He started to laugh and that's when I realised that I had spoken out loud.
"Well, it's late and I swear I won't be able to stop if I go any further and with you moaning like that," he let out a huge breath, "Fuck!" He looked straight into my eyes and I felt like he was staring straight into my soul.
"And to answer your question, I do feel better now." He smiled softly, pushing a strand of loose hair that fell on my eyes.
"Umm...okay, I guess." I cleared my throat and tried to fix my hair but all I wanted to do to grab him and have a go at it again because it felt so fucking good.
How can people be without making out all the time?
And why didn't I do this sooner?
He came closer near my ears, making me shiver a bit and his lips were so close to my earlobe.
"By the way, you are one hell of a kisser, sweetheart." He whispered in my ears and planted a soft kiss on my earlobe, making me groan internally.
Oh, fuck me already.
I blushed a deep shade of red and tucked my hair behind my ears.
"Uhhh...thanks I guess," I let out a nervous chuckle and didn't meet his gaze as I was feeling too shy.
I just had my first kiss with Ray Anderson.
And it was so fucking hot.
"Go get some sleep," he added, stepping back a little.
Yeah, like I would ever get sleep after what just happened right now.
I tried to walk past him but stopped and turned around as I remember the nightmare he had earlier.
Crap! I almost forgot about it due to the earth shattering kiss I had just now.
"Wait, do you want me to keep you company till you fall asleep?" I asked, feeling concerned about his nightmare and he raised his eyebrows in shock and surprise.
"Wh-what?" He stuttered for the first time since I've known him.
"No, no. I didn't mean in that way. I mean, you know, just in case you get another nightmare or something," I explained and could feel my cheeks burning in embarrassment.
Oh my God! He is going to make fun of me.
What if he thinks I'm desperate after a single kiss?
"I would absolutely love that," he grinned widely, pulling me closer towards him and he took my lips between his once again, kissing me softly this time. I felt my heart racing wildly against my chest and I was feeling all kinds of butterflies in my stomach.
What happened to the mean guy I knew and who was this sweet guy?
He looked like a complete different person to me right now and I was loving this side of him too.
