Two words sum up my summer in paradise—Evan Ashford.
I have a life back home I must return to, though my heart battles this reality. What started as a carefree summer fling has become so much more. Evan has become so much more. He’s become everything. Cupping his face, I stare into his deep blue eyes, wanting to lose myself once more... needing to know he feels this too.
Although our connection won’t stop the summer’s end from rushing toward us or silence the demons Evan battles, I have faith our love can overcome the obstacles that will undoubtedly arise from us choosing to be together. I still worry… Will our good intentions be good enough? But I’m all in, willing to take the risk, knowing he can destroy my heart if I’m wrong.
The top is down and the evening is breathtaking as we drive along the coast on our way back to his place. I unclasp my seatbelt and stand with my hands in the air, the wind whipping around me as I scream freely into the wild Hawaiian breeze. Giddy happiness is coursing through my veins. Life is better than ever.
I plop back down in my seat while appreciating Evan.
“What?” he asks, smiling back.
“Just admiring.” He laughs to himself, a little embarrassed by the attention. I’m hot and horny for the boy and if I want to eye fuck him, I will. Speaking of fuck, “Have you ever had sex in this car?”
He tilts his head and looks at me like I’m being ridiculous. “No, this is my caaarrrr.” He drags out the last word like that thought is unfathomable.
“Yeah. Ooh.” I drag my finger leisurely down his leg, insinuating so much more, and trail it back up. When I reach the top of his thigh, I flatten my hand and push forward, rolling it over his cock, which responds like a pro.
His hand immediately lands on top of mine, stilling it. “What are you doing, baby?”
“Exploring.” I smirk and offer, “Would you rather me explore with my mouth?”
His eyebrows bolt up in surprise, but he quickly collects himself. “Exploring, huh?” Looking back at the road, he says, “We’ll be home in twenty minutes. You want to wait ‘til then?”
“No, I don’t.”
FIVE THINGS WITH EVAN & MALLORY
Mallory: This is funny. *giggles* And kind of hard.
Evan: It’s easy. I can name way more than 5 things I love about you.
Mallory: *leans head on his shoulder* You say the sweetest things.
Evan: *coughs* Ummm…. You got nothing for me other than this will be kind of hard to name 5 things about the man you’re supposedly in love with? *pokes her in the ribs and makes her smile*
Mallory: I can name plenty, but most of those should be kept between us if you know what I mean.
Evan: I like the way you think… and kiss and… Ow! *rubs arm* Fine. Let’s do this because I know a few other things I’d like to be doing instead.
Mallory: *Smirks* Okay, I’ll go first. I like the way you look when you sleep.
Evan: You watch me sleep?
Mallory: You watch me.
Evan: Touché. Okay, my turn. I like your ass a lot.
Mallory: Wow. You’re just kicking right in with the romantic gestures, aren’t you? *rolls eyes*
Evan: I could’ve said I don’t like your ass. *cocks eyebrow*
Mallory: True. I’ll take the ass-liking instead.
Evan: You are one dirty girl and I’ll show you how much I like your ass lat—
Mallory: My turn again. I like your forearms and the way you can see the muscles moving. You’re strong and it’s really sexy.
Evan: *waggles eyebrows* I like watching you move. You’re quiet, but confident and caring in your actions.
Mallory: Awww, that’s so sweet. So you watch me?
Evan: You watch me sleep, so all’s fair.
Mallory: Ummm… *taps chin* What can I share? What can I share? Oh, I love your back and your body. I should just say I love your body. You’re the sexiest man I’ve ever seen and the most handsome.
Evan: Well, well, well. The sexiest and most handsome *smiles all cocky* I like where this is going.
Mallory: Your turn.
Evan: I love your curves—the ones from your neck to your shoulders and the other ones from your waist to your hips. I like that you have curves. And the ones from your tits… er, I mean breasts. You have a hot body.
Mallory: What if those curves changes or whatever?
Evan: *narrows eyes in thought* I’ll love the new ones too because I love you.
Mallory: *cups his sweet face* Thank you. Well I love that you still open the door for me.
Evan: *surprised* Why would I not?
Mallory: *shrugs* I don’t know. I guess that most guys do that more in the beginning of the relationship. Once they have you… well, most of those kinds of gestures disappear.
Evan: *shaking head* Men suck. I’m embarrassed for my gender and I’ll always open the door for you. I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to do it, so I’m not gonna squander the chance. *rubs hands together* Now back to what I love about you. There’s this way you say my name. It’s in your accent, but it’s mixed with your emotions and makes me smile… feel loved or whatever. It shows you really care about me.
Mallory: *smiles* Evan. Evan. Evan.
Evan: Yeah, that’s it. I especially like when you’re shouting it out while coming.
Mallory: I thought this list was supposed to be rated PG?
Evan: Really? Then we blew that when we first opened our mouths. Oops.
Mallory: I like your lips and the way you kiss me. It’s all passion and romance.
Evan: You took my answer. *leans forward and kisses her* I love the feel of your lips on mine and how when you kiss me, it’s like an invitation. *kisses her again*
Mallory: *dreamy sigh*
Evan: You’re beautiful, you know that.*strokes her hair back*
Mallory: I feel the same about you. *sits on his lap, wrapping her arms around him*
Evan: I think it’s my turn. I love your eyes—the green with gold flecks, the way you look at me like I can do no wrong, the fire in them, and your kind side. I love the way all your emotions can be read in your eyes. They’re quite stunning.
Mallory: *soft smile* Thank you. I love when you call me baby. This may sound strange and I probably shouldn’t admit this since it’s against the women’s movement, but there’s a possessiveness to it that makes me hot for you. It’s just so sexy rolling off your tongue.
Evan: I don’t even know what count we’re at, but we’re done here. *stands up holding her in his arms* I have plans for you and there’s no time like the present.
Mallory: I love you, you horny boy.
Evan: I’ll show you horny.
Mallory: Oh, I just bet you will. *giggles*
