Chapter Twenty Seven
Drunk me was not at all a good idea.
"I'll let you know, Trina. I think I might have other plans."
I tried to get out of it because it wasn't going to be just her and her girlfriend, Simon would also be there and I didn't want to hang out with him after our last encounter. It would be super awkward if I face him again.
"Look if this is about Simon, you really don't have to worry. He knows that you and Ray are a thing now. Please come, babe." She started whining and it almost felt like she had read my mind. Ray entered my room at that exact moment, making me re-think my decision again.
"Ummm.. I'll text you in a bit but I got to go now, Trina. Bye, see you." I rushed out quickly and cut the call before she could reply.
"What was that about?" he asked, eyeing me up and down suspiciously before sitting down on the bed beside me and I let out a huge sigh.
"It was Trina. She wants me to go out with her tonight for drinks." I replied, closing my book on my lap and placed in my bag before turning my attention towards him.
"And you don't want to go?"
"I don't know. I mean, Simon would be there, and getting drunk is not a good idea. I go completely crazy." I pouted, making him raise his eyebrows.
"Now that's something I would definitely want to witness." He chuckled, pushed me back on the bed lightly.
"What are you doing? I'm all dressed up and ready to leave for my exam now."
"Jeez, relax! I'm not going to do anything." He smiled, showing his dimples, and tucked a piece of my hair behind my ears that had escaped from my ponytail. A simple action that made my heart flip.
How did I get a guy like this?
"Umm...so should I go out tonight?" I asked, playing with his hair.
"You don't have to ask me, baby. You can go if you want to but yeah, I'm a little concerned that Simon might be there. Fucking asshole!" He muttered, his face going rigid for a split second and that's when I had an idea.
"Why don't you come with me?" I asked, running my fingers through his soft hair and he instantly had the brightest smile plastered on his face.
"Yeah, of course. I'll come but damn, Ridhi. I'm supposed to ask you out first."
Awww, he was so fucking cute.
"This is not a date, Mr. Architect." I laughed, kissing his nose lightly.
"I will take you on a proper date soon. Just be patient, sweetheart." he winked, kissing me softly and I let out a soft moan as his hands went down my ass.
"It doesn't matter you know because I already lo-like you. I like you." I let out a nervous laugh and shut my mouth immediately.
That was so close.
I didn't want to freak him out this early by telling him that I was in love with him.
It was by some miracle that he agreed to give us a chance despite his own issues and I didn't want to screw that up.
"I know, baby. God, I can never get tired of this." He spoke against my skin, his lips finding their way down my chin and I lifted my hips involuntarily to feel his hardness.
He almost jerked in response and look at me in surprise.
"I thought we had to leave now." He stated with a small chuckle and I rolled my eyes, pushing him away lightly. I stood up from my bed and started to fix my hair while looking at the mirror.
"You know, I was thinking..." I started, viewing him through the mirror. He was still lying on my bed with his arms tucked behind his head.
"Thinking about what?"
"Having sex. Tonight."
I held my breath, waiting for his response but I was greeted by silence. I turned around to see his face but he looked so shocked and concerned and I couldn't figure out what was he was running through his mind.
"I just thought it has been a while and I really want to..you know. Umm...I felt like you were holding back because I didn't say anything and it's my first time but I want you to know that I trust you. I mean, only if you want to. No pressure." I rushed out, feeling nervous by his silence and he stood up from the bed and started to walk towards me.
"If I want to? Seriously?" He started to laugh, taking my face between his hands and he placed a soft kiss on my forehead.
"That's all I've ever wanted since day one, babe." He smirked, making me blush so hard. He lifted my chin so that I was meeting his gaze and my breath hitched in my throat.
"Are you sure?" he asked again and I nodded because I knew I've never been so sure of anything in my life.
I wanted him.
All of him.
"Okay, let's go ace that exam of yours first and then you can drool all over me." He winked and started walking towards the door while I grabbed my things, shaking my head with a small smile.
'Where r u?' - Trina
I quickly grabbed my phone, looking at the text message from Trina.
Crap, we were running late.
'Be there in 15.'
I placed my phone on the dressing table and continued to wing my eyeliner. Once I was done, I ran a brush through my straight hair and ruffled it up a bit to add some volume.
"Done yet?" I heard Ray yelling from the living room, making me roll my eyes.
"I'll be out in a minute," I yelled back before turning my attention back to my hair. I pulled down my black cocktail dress one last time, hoping that it would magically cover my knees. It was a gift from Eshika and I've never had a chance to wear it until now.
I quickly took a snap and sent it to her before walking out of the room.
"God, you are so impatient. Shall we go?" I asked, wearing my heels almost tripping on the way and he literally choked on his beer when he saw me.
"What the---" He trailed off, coughing a bit and running his eyes all over my body in awe, "Wow, fuck! I've never seen you dress like this." He stood up from the couch, wiping his lips, still checking me out shamelessly while I was secretly enjoying his reaction, and tried so hard not to smile.
"It was a gift from Eshika. I usually don't wear dresses like this but I've got to blend in right. Is it too much?" I asked, hoping that the dress wasn't too provocative.
"It's perfect. God, I can't take my eyes off you."
"You don't look so bad yourself," I added with a small smile. He was wearing a black button-down shirt with the sleeves rolled up and a pair of dark blue jeans.
We were actually matching.
"We better go before I take you against the wall or something," he mumbled to himself and grabbed the keys from the coffee table.
I decided to tease him further and started walking closer towards him. I placed my hand on his shoulders, making him turn around quickly, and held his breath, looking down at me. He licked his lips hungrily, his arms automatically going around my waist, pulling me flush against his chest.
I placed my palm on his chest and tip-toed on my heels as I couldn't match his height even after wearing them. I went closer to his ears and placed a small kiss below his ear lobes.
"I can't wait for you to fuck me tonight, Ray. Just thinking about it makes me so wet already." I whispered seductively and pulled back from him immediately.
"Fucking hell, do we even have to go?" He groaned in frustration and I couldn't help but laugh out loud.
"If you wanna get laid. Come on, let's go, it's getting late." I smirked, raising my eyebrows and opened the front door to head out. He let out a huge breath before following me right behind.
