I drink.
I party.
I’ll let you guess what else I do the best and they never get any seconds with me. One and done.
The choices I make guarantee I’m never the one left behind.
I say and do what I want with no regrets; now I’m ordered to attend anger management to keep my job.
The problem? My failure of a one night stand is now running the group, but I’ve spent my time running and avoiding him at any cost.

My job, my house, my car…my life is exactly how I want it to be except in the relationship department. Jamie has a ridiculous one and done rule. I know one taste will never be enough. If she thinks this is over, she has never been more wrong.
I’m determined to prove to her that rules were made to be broken and that we are worth breaking them.

A few minutes later, I’m walking toward Gavin’s bedroom. His door is open. I appreciate the open-door policy, and my anxiety lessens a little bit. A part of me is afraid to wake him up just because I’m awake and aggravated. I stand in the doorway going back and forth in my mind. As I turn away to go back to my room, Gavin faces me.

“Umm. I want…” I am feeling flustered by his gorgeous body. Gavin has the sheets down to his waist, leaving his beautiful torso exposed. His clearly defined chest and abdominal muscles have taken my breath away twice in one day.

Gavin could have asked me what I needed or wanted; instead he just did the next best thing. “Jamie, come on. You can sleep with me,” he said with a sleepy, dreamy smile.

I crawl into his bed as the thunder continues to pound outside the bedroom window. Gavin allows me to get myself into a comfortable posiiton with the pillows situated. I’m not sure if I should move to the edge of the bed, away from him. By no means do I want him to feel like he has to have me in his bed. Gavin immediately takes the choice from me by bringing the back of my body up against his hard chest. He circles his arms around me, and I feel his stubble on my neck. I love a good smelling man, and Gavin doesn’t disappoint. He has the just-got-out-of the-shower vibe going on, and I find it very distracting. I sink my body into his, grateful for the refuge it gives me.

When I climbed into his bed, I wasn’t expecting the intimacy it’s giving me. I lie in bed with Chris all the time after sex, and it doesn’t impact me either way. Lying in bed with Chris is like hanging out with your best friend with benefits. The focus is on the sex and the fun it gives us both. Orgasms are the end goal and nothing else. When it comes to sex, I like to think like a man. We both get what we want, and we go our separate ways. No expectations equals no problems. No one is tying me down. Don’t get me wrong, I have no problem being tied up, just not tied down. I can come and go as I please, and fuck anyone else if they don’t like it.

My mind is racing all over the place. Intimacy and Jamie are on opposites ends of the spectrum. When Gavin holds me closer, the instinct to run is stronger than ever.

Jamie, everything is alright,” Gavin says softly in my ear. The anxiety is creeping up to a level that I am nowhere near being comfortable with.

“The storm is too much.” My brittle tone shows I’m on the verge of tears.

“The weather is temperamental here, it should pass shortly.” Gavin lightly kisses my temple. I pull myself into him even more, leaving no distance between us. He allows me this, and a feeling of calm takes over as I drift into a comfortable sleep.

A.L. Simpson I’m an Australian and live in Queensland. I have always loved to write and have a vivid and overactive imagination. In my spare time, when I’m not writing, I love to walk, read and shop. I believe no mountain is too hard to climb, no river is too wide to span and no journey is too difficult to complete. I follow my dreams and I urge and encourage others to do the same. With a positive attitude, the impossible can become possible.
