Forever and Always (Forever and Always #2)(6)
E.L. Todd

I sighed. “Fine,” I said.

Sean smiled at me. “I love that you want me so much.”

“Well, you know your way around the bedroom, too. And I love you, Sean. I want to make love to the man I’m in love with.”

“You’ll get your chance,” he said as he patted my thigh.

“Can I at least kiss you?”

“If you can control yourself.” He smiled.

“Look who’s conceited now,” I said.

Sean grabbed my face and kissed me, moving my lips slowly with his own. His fingers glided through my hair as he parted my lips with his tongue, and I felt myself gasp involuntarily. I forgot how great of a kisser he was. My hands were running through his hair by their own will. Sean laid me back on the couch, spreading my legs with his hips. He glided his hand down my legs and massaged my calf then moved his hands back to my face. My fingers scratched his back as we kissed on the couch. I wanted more, but I knew he would never give it to me. Sean didn’t touch my breasts or the area between my legs as he caressed the rest of my body. Finally, he broke our kiss and stared at me.

“You should go to bed. I don’t know if I can be a gentleman any longer.”

“I don’t want you to be.”

He pressed his forehead against mine and sighed. “Please don’t say that to me.”

“Sean, I want you.”

He growled and moved away from me. “Good night, Scar,” he said.

I pulled down my dress and got to my feet. “I’ll grab you some blankets,” I said as I walked to the closet. I tossed him a sheet and an extra pillow then stood in front of him.

“Thank you,” he said.

I pushed him back and sat on his lap, straddling his hips.

“It isn’t going to work,” he whispered.

I sighed, annoyed that I wasn’t going to get any. I kissed him gently. “I love you.”

“I love you too,” he said as he cupped my face.

“Good night,” I said as I got to my feet.

“Good night, babe.”

I smiled at him. “Babe?”

“What?”

“Why are you calling me that?”

“You’re my girlfriend—I can call you whatever I want.”

I turned around and walked toward the hallway. “I’ll see you in the morning.”

“Good night,” he said.

When I woke up the next morning, Sean was still asleep on the couch. Instead of walking into the living room in my pajamas with no makeup, I dolled myself up for my new boyfriend, not wanting him to see me look so hideous. I had never been happier in my life, and even though I really wanted to sleep with Sean, knowing he was in the next room was enough.

I sat at the kitchen table and ate my cereal quietly, letting Sean sleep as long as possible since he was still acclimating to the time difference. Ryan came in a moment later and spotted Sean on the couch. He poured himself a cup of coffee and sat across from me, reading the newspaper like he did every morning. Ryan didn’t strike me as a guy that cared about local news in Seattle, but he read the paper every single day.

I heard a loud yawn from the living room and knew Sean was awake. He got up and stretched, and I walked over to him, giving him a kiss.

“Good morning,” I said.

“Good morning.” He smiled. “Sorry I slept in so late.”

“I’m glad you got some rest,” I said. “Would you like some breakfast?”

“I’ll just have coffee.” Sean rose from the couch and entered the kitchen, pouring himself a mug of coffee. He sat at the table with us while I had breakfast. I was practically jumping in my seat because I was so happy. Ryan smiled at me from across the table.

“I’m surprised you slept on the couch,” Ryan said.

“I didn’t mind,” Sean said quickly.

“I would have given you my bed,” Ryan said. “Guests should never sleep on the couch.”

“Thank you,” he said. “But the couch is fine, really.”

“I offered to let him sleep with me, but he refused,” I said.

Ryan shook his head. “That’s because Sean has some class—unlike you.”

I rolled my eyes at my brother.

Ryan turned the page of the newspaper. “Do you want to play ball with Cortland and I?” he asked. “We are leaving in a few minutes.”

“Sure,” Sean said before I could reject the offer. Now that Sean was there and only for a weekend, I wanted to spend all my time with him. “Do you have some clothes I can borrow?”
