Chapter 5

As I awoke I was having a hard time trying to figure out where I was and what had happened the night before. I soon realized that I was not alone...I had a pair of large muscular arms wrapped around my body and arms. It is rather hard to move when someone as strong as this man has a hold of you. But after a few minutes of wriggling around I managed to position my body so that I was flat on my back, and still managed not to wake the sleeping man with the death grip on my body...and then I see it. My door. or what used to be my all comes back to me then what had happened the night before.

I look over and sure enough I find that Eric is the man with the death grip on my body. For a second, I'll admit it was kind of nice to wake up with him beside me...but then I remember that Eric isn't exactly my favorite person right now.

With some effort, I am able to break away from Eric and get out of my bed. As I walk by my now broken door I realize that I have absolutely no idea how I am going to fix the damn thing. I walk down the stairs and am greeted by a mess that may take days to clean up. Awesome, I guess I can just add that to my list of things to do! I continue through the house and into the kitchen, looking for some coffee and Advil because I am starting to feel all of those drinks from last night...

When I reach the kitchen I find Emma and Jordan Staal sitting on the counter of my kitchen waiting for the last of the coffee to brew into the pot, the two were looking pretty cozy and only getting closer. I clear my throat to give them some warning that they are no longer alone. I swear the giant must have jumped 10 feet...well he could have if that cupboard hadn't got in the way of his head...

Emma has only a moment of shock pass over her face, before she starts giggling uncontrollably at Jordan. Any other day I would have laughed along with her. I notice the coffee is done and go to pour myself a nice big cup and grab some Advil, while I am doing that Emma composes herself and checks to make sure the giant is okay, then turns to me with a devilish grin placed on her face. and says

"I see someone else had a good time last night..."

"I don't think I know what you're talking about Em." I reply

"You and Eric looked pretty cozy when I came up to check on looks like you played a little hard to get but in the end it worked out for the both of you, no?"



"No, I'm sorry but I don't believe the lies that he is feeding me."

This is when Jordan speaks up "Well can I ask, what exactly are these so called lies?"

"Well to keep it short, sweet, simple and to the point he told me that he broke up with his girlfriend and that he has feelings for me, and I just find that hard to believe."

"I have known Eric for a while and he is not one to lie to women, and he really did break up with his girl" he stops to laugh and says "and let me ask you this: if he didn't really have feelings for you they why did he spend the whole night just holding you? I mean he must have some kind of feelings for you..."

I think about it for a minute and find that the giant does have a point, and maybe Eric has been telling me the truth the whole time.

"Maybe you should go talk to him" Emma suggests

"Yeah, think you're right."

I find my way up to my room and find that Eric is now awake and looking a little confused to where he is and then he spots me in the doorway and gives me a small smile that quickly disappears and opens his mouth to say something but I cut him off before he can say anything.

"I'm sorry I didn't believe you Eric...I shouldn't have jumped to conclusions and say that you were lying...and I am willing to give us a chance, you know if you don't totally hate me now."

A larger smile appears on his face "I think I would like that Alli but..." hes going to say no. "But I think that I should fix your door first"

It takes a moment to realize that he did not turn me down, and find that I am now mirroring his smile in return.

"I'd like that" and I go over and place a gentle kiss onto his lips.

  1. Awwww!
    They kissed!
    That's adorable*

    And Jordan bumping his head... I'm reminded of a hilarious IKEA story, in which we were debating which kitchens would be better, and using JStaal as a model... It's a long story.
    Have I told you said story?

    You know, speaking of stories, you should update this more often. :)
    K, bye*
