When I woke up it was dark outside, I face-palmed myself when I recalled what I did. I won't be leaving my room anytime soon, I totally embarrassed myself.

I shouldn't have snapped, I should have pretended I was happy for him.

I groaned and buried my face in the pillow.

I had to avoid him till I come up with an excuse, I could tell him I was drunk.

The door suddenly opened, I pretended to be asleep.

"I know you're awake."

I was relieved it was Tristan but I didn't move.

"Are you feeling better?"

I gave up and turned to look at him.

"I'm fine."

"Adrian told me you were feeling sick because you took too much wine which is weird because I have seen you finish a whole bottle of wine."

Great! Adrian thought I was drunk, I guess Tristan didn't hear anything I said.

"Yeah, my body didn't like the wine."

"You look like someone that takes anything that has alcohol in it."

That sounded like an insult but I will take it.

"If you say so."

"Call Morris if you need anything."

He turned to leave.


I called sitting up, he stopped and turned around with a scowl.

"Can you tell me what happened last night? I know I was drunk and you were there but the rest of my memory is hazy."

He folded his arms and leaned on the door frame then smiled.

"You kissed me."

He left the room before I could react.

"I did what?"

I whispered with my eyes wide open.

I forced myself to remember something, anything but I got nothing, it wasn't something I would want to remember but I needed to know if he was telling the truth.

I won't even kiss him in my dreams not even in a drunken state. It had got to be a lie, why would he leave me behind if I kissed him?

My phone rang breaking me from my train of thoughts, I was relieved it was Vina.

"Hey, girl!"

She screamed in a sing-song tone, I started crying but no tears were coming out.

"Chloe? What's wrong? Did Tristan do something to you? Should I call 911?"

"No, I made a mess Vina. I did something stupid."

I heard her sigh in relief.

"You kissed Adrian again?"

"I wish but no, it's worse."

"What did you do Chloe Simpson?"

I grunted before telling her my dilemma.

"No way."

She gasped when I was done.

"That was really stupid, Chlo."

"Don't remind me."

I didn't tell her about kissing Tristan cause I still didn't believe him.

"What are you going to do now?"

"Go invisible when I see him."

"You didn't tell me you had powers."

"Seriously Vina, tell me what to do."

"To be honest with you, I think you should sort this out yourself"

"Any advice?"

"He already knows you like him, you can't change that. Wait and see what he will do, if he doesn't make.....I'm telling you what do, aren't I?"

"Uh-huh, go on."

"No, figure this out yourself. Goodnight, love you."

She ended the call before I could beg her.

I made up my mind to avoid him, I started with switching off my cellphone.

My phone had been off for two days now, I knew Vina would've tried reaching me.

I hadn't seen Adrian since my outburst and Tristan was still the mysterious Tristan.

I stayed in my room with three bags of potato chips doing research for my classes. I told Morris to only come to my room when it was time for dinner.

7:37 he was knocking on my door, I told him I'd be down in a minute and he left.

I cleared my bed and wore my big bunny slippers, I walked down the stairs rubbing my eyes. I froze when I heard Adrian's laughter, my heart raced.

I stepped back slowly trying not to make any sound.

"Did you forget something, Miss Simpson?"

Morris asked immediately he saw me, I wanted the ground to open and swallow me.


I said with a laugh but couldn't help glaring at him for ruining my escape.

I summoned every courage I had and went to the dining, Karen wasn't with him. I sat next to Tristan not uttering a word or making eye contact.

I watched Morris dish out our food like it was the most interesting thing to watch, I could feel someone's eyes on me and I knew it was Adrian.

Can someone please open the wine?

I saw Adrian from my peripheral vision standing up, I stopped breathing as he walked to where I was sitting. The hair on my neck stood erect when he leaned down to my neck, his hot breath fanned my cheek.

"Can I talk to you outside, It's only going to take ten minutes."

I nodded not trusting myself to say a word.

"I will be waiting for you in the garden."

He whispered and withdrew carrying his warmth with him.

I took a glance at Tristan, he was already eating and didn't look bothered.

I stood up and left for the garden, I tried to even my breathing as I got closer, I sighted Adrian tall form touching the garden gnome.

I walked to where he was and stood next to him. There was a long silence between us, I rubbed my left elbow staring at the gnome too.

He faced me and I did the same, I bit my inner cheek as I waited for him to say something.

"I'm sorry, I'm really sorry if I gave you the wrong signal."

I was disappointed and more heartbroken, I was really expecting him to tell me he dumped Karen and wanted to be with me.

"It's fine, I wasn't expecting you to like me back anyway."

Ohh I was.

"I wouldn't have brought her here if I knew, I can't imagine h

one walked into the kitchen, I was expecting to see Morris but it was Tristan.

"You left because you ran out of wine?"

He leaned on the seat far from me.

"No, you left too anyway."

"Adrian kept bugging me to go check on you since you were taking an eternity to return, I had to call Morris and he told me you were sick, care to explain?"

"It wasn't a lie, I was nauseous and alcohol helps sometimes."

I knew that didn't make any sense.

"Aren't you too young to be consuming this amount of alcohol?"

I shrugged.

I was twenty, why won't people see me as an adult?

I stood up and got another glass and poured some for him, he collected it.

"How was the food?"

"Great, it tasted like paradise. We should go there some other time."

I gave him an eye roll.

Maybe I should get him drunk and get the truth out of him, I had never seen him drunk. He was always watchful of the amount of alcohol he took that was why he didn't care when I stole his drink.

"You're the first female I have ever come across that drinks like this."

"I'm honoured, " I said with a bow.

He smiled and sipped his drink, I stared at his lips on the glass, it looked so soft, what would it feel like to kiss Tristan?

I shook the thought out of my head, must be the alcohol talking but I was curious.

I wanted to do something crazy and I knew I will regret it, I took one gulp of my drink and stood up.

I stopped in front of him, he cocked an eyebrow as he stared down at me, his blue eyes holding countless secrets I wanted to know.

I gripped the front of his shirt and pushed myself up on my tiptoes, my eyes drifted to his tempting pink lips. I was still contemplating what I was about to do, I stopped thinking and captured his lower lip in a slow kiss, I felt him tense and suck in a breath.

I waited for him to kiss me back but he didn't, I withdrew and stared at his eyes that were now a darker shade of blue, it held raw desire.

"Are you drunk already?"

He asked observing me with his eyes.


The word was barely out of my mouth before he pushed my back against the island and claimed my lips.

The sudden movement made me moan, I responded to every movement of his lips. His one hand gripped my hip while the other was around my neck.

I had never been kissed like this, the feeling was beyond my imagination. The way his lips and tongue moved brought tingles to my feet and a sweet unknown sensation through my stomach.

He sucked on my lower lip and pulled it between his lips slowly till he broke the kiss, that was hot.

We were breathing hoarsely as we stared at each, there was hesitation in his eyes but the lust in his eyes was taking over.

I wanted more, my body was begging for his touch, I wanted to kiss him again.

Like he read my mind, he hoisted me up on the countertop, I ran my fingers through his hair as he moved closer between my legs.

The heat from our bodies increased the temperature around us.

His eyes were glued to my now swollen lips, he leaned down and kissed me slowly. I wondered when last he got laid, I had a feeling I just awaken his hunger.

I didn't know if it was the alcohol but I was enjoying this, I didn't plan for it to go this far but who cares.

He ran his palm up my thigh through my dress, it left goosebumps on my skin. He gripped my skin digging his fingers, I could feel the mark he was leaving on me. I stifled another moan when he bit on my lip.


I pulled away and we both turn to look at Adrian at the doorway staring at us.
