"Take The Time to Talk"
It had been about a week give or take a few days, since Anna and Hayden had spent anytime together. That was mostly her fault though, she had been so wrapped up in her writing and spending time with her friends she had left Hayden in the dust. During their time away from one another though, she had had a chance to over think things and get worried. Hayden had loved Isla, and Isla even told her that at one point he had proposed to her… they had even slept with one another. Surely there was a part of him that still had feelings for Isla… and if so, was it fair of her to keep Hayden to herself if he would really be happier with Isla?
Hitting the ‘Print’ button on her computer, her printer whirred to life and started the process of printing the rough draft. The lights in her apartment flickered, announcing that someone had rung the doorbell so she walked away from her desk in her room and headed towards the door. Was he upset with her? Would he agree with her that he wanted to try one last time to get Isla and leave her? Would it be selfish of her if she didn’t give him that one last chance?
Opening the door, she gave him a smile and leaned up to peck his lips in greeting. “Hey babe." she smiled and stepped backwards, letting him inside her well kept apartment.
It had been a week since they had seen one another. Anna had been so busy with an article that they had just..not found time to be with eachother until this time. Bringing back some coffee with him, and some of her favorite treats, along with flowers. She deserved to have some sweet things. Especially after not seeing her for a whole week. he had thought about a lot of things while on his own and not while on work. While Isla was still a part of his life, he loved Anna. He really did, and wished she didn’t compare herself to her, because, honestly, she was a huge part of his life now, and both Isla and him were happy.
As he rung the bell he smiled a little as she opened the door and stepped back. “Hey baby, I missed you so much." He came in and offered her the flowers, and held up the coffee and treats. “I got you some of your favorite treats and coffee." As he put down the treats and coffee, walking over and wrapping his arms around her and kissed her slowly, cupping her cheek, sighing softly.
Taking the treats along with the flowers, she gave him an appreciative smile. “Awe you didn’t have to do that Hay, thank you." she smiled. He really was so thoughtful. Putting the items down onto the counter, she turned around just as he wrapped his arm around her and cradled her face in his hands, kissing her. Melting into his arms, she leaned in towards him and placed her hands on both sides of his face while kissing him back. The kiss was slow and she lowered her eyelids as she enjoyed the lips she had missed so much over this past week.
Finally she broke the kiss, but kept her arms around his neck. “I’m sorry I was so busy this week." Anna apologized to him, her eyes wide and filled with guilt in them. She had been so neglectful towards him and had barely given him the attention he deserved but barely ever asked for. "I’m really sorry…" she whispered.
"I know, but I did anyways because I really missed you, and I wanted to do something really sweet for you." He smiled. As she kissed him back, he sighed softly and held her tight to him, stroking her hair and gently nuzzled against her jawline as he broke the kiss. “God, I missed you so much," he whispered against her lips as he pulled away.
"Honey," he said softly. “it’s alright, you needed to get that article done, and I had a lot of work too." He stroked her hair more, running his fingers along her jawline tenderly. “Stop apologizing baby," he said giving her a soft kiss. “I’m here with you right now. That’s all that matters."
"Have I told you yet that you’re perfect?" she sighed, admiration in her tone as she smiled up at him. Feeling his stubbly face nuzzle against her jaw, she giggled and leaned into him, loving the feeling. “I missed you…" she murmured back against his mouth lovingly.
"I know… but stil…" she murmured, feeling bad. Glancing down at her shoes for a moment, she tried to figure out how to go about this next part. "I um… I actually spent some time, thinking." she started off, looking him in the eyes. "I know that Isla means a lot to you Hay and that you… you loved her at one point. And I uh… I’ve been thinking… " she chewed on her bottom lip for a moment, trying to get her courage back. This was the right thing to do, she had to give him this offer. "If you… If you still have any feelings for her and you want to um… you want to try and see if she feels the same way or if you want to go and try and convince her to be with you instead of Ewan, I wanna give you that chance before she gets married. I…I couldn’t live with myself and the guilt I’d feel if years from now you regretted not chasing after her just because of me…" she lowered her eyes for a moment, mentally preparing herself for his confession that he wanted to try and get Isla back. She lifted her eyes back up and waited to see what he would say, holding her breath.
"I’m not really perfect," he said softly and laughed gently, loving the sound of her giggle. It was beautiful and sweet. He wished she could hear it. “I’m glad you did," he said softly and kised her again and sighed. He felt like he was home again, with his beautiful girlfriend who…meant more to him than anything in the world.
He bit his lip and listened to her carefully. He cupped her face and then looked her in the eyes. “Anna, yes, I did love her. And she still means a lot to me, and I can’t lie that she’s still important to me." he sighed stroked her jawline. “But Anna, here’s the thing. I know you’re not Isla. Nobody else is Isla. So…please…stop trying to compare yourself to her. Because you are Anna Banks. I choose you. Because you make me feel amazing. And….I feel like I can trust you, i’ve already told you about…well, a bit about my past. Anna, I don’t regret anything."
He smiled and kissed her softly. “To tell you the truth…I was afraid I had scared you off, because I had said I love you too quickly and scared you off but…I really meant it." he looked into her eyes and ran a thumb her cheek.
"I think you are…" She whispered softly, fiddling with his shirt shyly as she leaned into him. Watching his mouth as he spoke, reading his mouth. "Are you sure Hay? I mean… if there is any part of you that wants to try one last time with her, I would completely understand." Anna cooed to him, reaching up to stroke at his jaw gently, "I love you Hay and it… It’d be selfish of me not to let you go after her. So I’m just… I’m giving you that chance to go after her if you want to, and you wouldn’t have to worry about any hard feelings or anything like that." Combing her fingers up into his hair, she smiled up at him lovingly. "You can trust me Hay, with anything." She whispered.
Feeling the pad of his thumb against her cheek, she leaned into his hand and nuzzled her cheek against it. “You didn’t scare me off Hay." she reassured him lovingly, "Was I surprised? Yeah. But not scared." she shook her head, "which was actually surprising to me… that I didn’t get scared. I mean I was scared of loving someone and scared of having to say it when that time came. But then you said it… and I wasn’t scared at all. It was… it was exciting and a little nerve wracking but it was also a happy feeling I felt when you said it. I hadn’t expected it to be as great of a feeling as it was when I said those words." she confessed, blushing.
"Anna, stop," he said softly. “There is no part of me that wants to try one last time with her. Isla is so happy with Ewan, and I’m so happy for her for that. He’s going to make her happy, and they’re going to have a huge family and i’ll be their uncle, and you’ll be their aunt!" He smiled, and nuzzled her softly. “I don’t want to go out and try and be with her. Anna, i’m with you. I don’t want anyone else." He sighed as she combed his hair and smiled at him lovingly. “Good, i’m glad I can." He smiled.
He sighed softly. “I’m glad that I didn’t scare you off," he said gently and kissed her. “I…I wasn’t scared at all either. It felt..good to say it." As she blushed he sighed and kissed her again. “I love you Anna Banks." He whispered. “And nothing will ever change that. Nothing." He sighed and smiled.
"Okay." she whispered, nodding her head as she smiled up at him. Standing up on the tips of her toes, she pecked his lower lip lovingly. "Anything Hay. I’m not going to judge you or anything. Whatever you tell me, it’s safe with me." she reassured him, smiling.
"It did feel good." she agreed, nodding her head. Kissing him back in return, she smiled against his mouth. "I love you Hayden Clifton." She squeezed his hands lovingly before letting go. "Now that that’s done, what do you say I read my article to you and you can tell me your opinion?" she asked, walking backwards towards her printer to get the pieces of paper that her article was on.
He smiled softly as she stood on tip toes and kissed his lower lip. “Good," he said softly against her mouth. “I know that, and i’m so happy that I can depend on you." He nuzzled his nose against hers and then chuckled.
"Good," he said softly and then as she said his name, his eyes softened. "I like how that comes from you," he signed and spoke, tucking some hair behind her ear. Kissing her hands he nodded. "Absolutely!! Please! Let me go get some coffee for us both, ok?" He walked into the kitchen and came back with two cups. "What’s this one on?"
"You can always depend on me Hay, always." she whispered before giggling when he rubbed his nose against hers. Rubbing her own nose against his with a giggle. He was so darn cute.
When he tucked a strand of hair behind her ear, she smiled and tilted her head to the side just a bit, smiling up at him. The feeling of his stubble against her hands made her giggle since it tickled. "Coffee sounds good." She nodded before grabbing the paper. When he walked back into the room, she took one of the cups and sipped at the warm beverage. “It’s about how Goodwill says they are all about giving people with disabilities work that they normally wouldn’t get. But they get paid less than other non-disabled employees, which by law is okay, but the CEOs are making millions and don’t even offer these people, some with serious medical needs, health care benefits." Anna explained to him before looking down at the paper in her hands, starting to read the three pages she had typed up. When she was done, she looked up at him, a nervous look on her face as she waited to see what his opinion would be.
"Of course, and you can always count on me, honey," he smiled as she giggled. He knew he could be “Cute" around her because she knew how much a man she was. Or rather, how comfortable he was with his own manhood.
He laughed as she giggled again and the nodded. “Mmm, good," he said softly and then as she came back with the paper he took it in his hands he looked to her and went on the couch,curling up a little, listening to her. “What the hell? Really?" He frowned a little and listened to her reading and by the end he looked up meeting her face. “I think it’s horrible that stuff is happening. After all, everyone deserves a fair wage and medical help when they need it." He frowned even more.
"How many nicknames do you have for me Hay?" she asked with a laugh, amused. Anna really only had two nicknames for him, three if you count ‘babe’ but she didn’t since most everyone used that name for their loved one. Hay and Captain were her two personalized nicknames for him. Maybe Hook too, if she found a good time to use it. Or “My Hook" that could work too.
"I know. When the rich steal from the poor, it’s called business. But when the poor steal from the rich, it’s called robbery. Kinda messed up, huh?" she sighed, taking a seat beside him on the couch and put the papers on the coffee table in front of them. Curling up into his side, she rested her head on his broad chest. "Did you like it though? I mean obviously the story isn’t a feel good one, but did you think it was written well?" she asked, looking up at him.
"Tons, but…pretty girl is the main one." he laughed. But pretty girl would always be his favorite because it was the first nickname he had given her, and it meant a lot to him. So if he was going to call her anything consistntly, it was that. Since, well…she was his pretty girl. He felt lucky for that because, after isla, he never ever thought he’d feel like this again. But he did, and it was so good.
“it’s why robin hood works," he said sighing a little. As she curled against him and laid her hand on his chest he wrapped an arm around her. “I liked it, it isn’t feel good, but…sometimes they can’t be, but it’s important to get the important stuff out." He leaned down and kissed her.
"I like it. And angel. That was another one you called me early on." she grinned, remembering the way her heart had done a flip the first time he had called her that. Actually, her heart did a flip every time he called her by one of those nicknames.
She laughed a bit, smiling at the Disney reference. “Right… I feel like so much in the news is stuff we as people have no control over. But we have control over where we spend our money and we can send a message that way, you know?" she grinned up at him just as he leaned down to kiss her. Her hand went to his neck, her thumb resting gently against his jawline and rubbed the stubble slowly as she kissed him back. Sighing into his mouth, she pressed herself closer to him before slowly leaning backwards onto her back. With one hand guiding his face down, the other pulled at the collar of his shirt, pulling him on top of her as her mouth worked and sucked on his bottom lip. She hadn’t seen him in a week, which meant she hadn’t gotten to kiss him for a whole week, so she had some kissing to make up for.
"Angel is a good one too," he said softly and smiled.He loved that everytime he called her a nickname her cheeks would turn pink and she would curl some hair around her finger. It was probably the cutest and the hottest thing.
He smiled softly. “Exacltly," he smiled. “And as long as you’re doing something, making your voice be heard, then you’re helping the cause." He smiled and as her fingers went to his neck, her thumb caressing his jawline, making him shiver a little. Little did Anna know that she knew the places to kiss him that made him shiver.
As she pulled him ontop of her, kissing at his bottom lip, he moaned softly. He hadn’t kissed her for whole week, and she tasted so amazing he groaned and ran his hands through her hair gently, sighing and moving them down her back.
"That’s my goal." she grinned. If by writing she could bring awareness to causes that were important and needed to bed talked about, then her job was completed. Enjoying the prickly feeling of his stubble under her finger tips, she cupped his cheek lovingly, pulling his face as close to hers as she could.
"I love you Hayden…" she moaned against his moist lips, a smile on her mouth as she sucked at his upper lip. His hands moved to her back and one of her hands moved to his shoulder blade, pressing her fingers against his defined muscles, shivering as she felt them flex and press against his shirt. Breaking the kiss for a brief moment to look at him, she caught her breath before tilting her head to the side and pressing her mouth back to his. Wanting to French kiss him, she mentally prepared herself for this next step and told herself that even if she was horrible at it, he’d teach her by example and the thought of that made her heart flutter. So as her heart raced, she slipped her tongue out of her mouth and licked at his lower lip, hoping that this was the correct way to ask.
"I think you’re doing it beautifully," he laughed softly and nuzzled her gently, sighing gently as her fingers stroked along his cheek and stubble. Sighing as she pulled his face close to him.
"I love you Anna," he sighed as he heard her moan. THAT was a sexy sound. As her hands pressed into hs back, he groaned softly and smiled as he felt her shiver. Catching his breath he looked into her eyes for a breif moment, smiling tenderly at her before she pressed her mouth to his, her tongue softly licked at his lower lip, he shivered and opened his mouth softly, letting his tongue softly caress hers, he sighed as he felt her fingers curl into his back.
He knew this was something new for Anna, so he gently led the kiss, twining his fingers in her hair, he sighed. She tasted amazing, sweet with a hint of coffee.
While she couldn’t hear his moan, she could feel it. Many hearing people tend to not even notice the way someone’s lips hummed or their breath vibrated when their partner moaned or hummed. But being deaf, it gave Anna a heightened sense of touch and she could feel almost every motion that some people might not. To a hearing partner, Hayden’s shiver might’ve felt like a small tremor to them but to Anna, his shivering felt like one of those massage chairs that were on full blast. Every move, every touch, every inch of his skin, it all made the hair on her arms stand at attention and her toes curl. So she may not have the pleasure of hearing him moan, but she felt it and that was not something most people had the pleasure of feeling. But she did. And oh how she loved the feeling.
His fingers threaded through her hair as his tongue lead the dance that was taking place in his mouth between their two muscles. Slimy, smooth and so sweet in taste, his tongue wrapped around hers and she followed his lead. Feeling up the side of his cheek with her tongue, she explored as much of his mouth as she could, committing every nook and cranny of his mouth to memory as her body shivered with pleasure. As she sucked on his upper lip, she tapped the roof of his mouth with the tip of her tongue before letting it plunge down towards his throat while her mouth moved to suck at his bottom lip.
Hayden loved that he could hear her moan, a sound he had been keen to pull one out of her, and he knew, to a point, he could hear every single noise he made through the vibrations in his body. Everything was touch, taste, and all senses. He had never felt like this before, as if everything was finally clicking into place for him. Breaking the kiss to breathe softly against her lips he kissed her deeply again, his tongue easily finding hers again.
Feeling her shiver, he groaned as her mouth sucked at his bottom lip and her tongue worked in his mouth so beautifully he was melting against her, grunting. Once she got the general idea, Anna was damn good. She needed to give herself more credit. She was sexy and even though she was beginning, she seemed to, more or less, have things down. Of course, he had to correct her a few times, but only led to her moaning a little louder, which was his goal.
This was the first time Anna had done anything like this before, so as she moved her mouth against his she tried to follow his patterns and the moves he made. There were no books or ‘How to’ guides on how make out that Anna could’ve read to prepare her for this experience so she just had to follow his silent and gentle directions and hoped she wasn’t nearly as horrible as she thought she was.
Draping one arm over his shoulder, she used the other hand to gently push him away from her to break the kiss. Trying to catch her breath, she smiled up at him as her chest rose and fell quickly. Looking him in the eyes, she gave him an apologetic smile, “I’m not very good at this Hay… If you wanna stop, we can." she offered him, not wanting to because he was making her feel so good, but she doubted that she was making him feel any pleasure at all.
Hayden’s first time was a bit awkward, because, well, he didn’t have any sort of guide either. But that was a thing. There never was a guide to do this sort of thing, so he wanted to be the one to teach her, gently. That’s what someone who loves another did.
He sighed as she draped an arm around her, and as she broke the kiss. He smiled down at him and then smiled back. “What?" He said breathlessly. “God no, Anna, I….why would I want to stop? It feels…amazing." He softly kissed her, and then her neck. “I want to continue, please." He whispered against her ear gently, grinning against it.
"It does?" She asked softly, happily surprised that he felt as good as he did because of her kissing. Feeling his lips move onto her slender neck, her eyes closed and her hand grasped at the hair on the back of his head, holding him close to her body. His breath against her ear tickled but in an amazingly pleasurable way that made her giggle and curl her toes at the same time. She had a feeling he had whispered something, based off of the feeling of his breath on her ear, but she didn’t know what.
Arching her back a bit, she pressed her large chest against his as she tilted her head backwards, giving him more space and skin to kiss at. Then she slowly guided his face by using the hand on the back of his head back up to her mouth where she kissed him deeply for a few seconds then she returned the kisses on his own neck, giving his ear a gentle nibble.
"Absolutely," he said softly and then as she grabbed his hair and held him closer. he sighed softly and then nuzzled against her neck again, kissing her, loving how he could feel her toes curl. It was an amazing feeling that he could make her feel like this. That she trusted him enough to let go and let him let her feel this way.
As she tilted back, pressing her chest against him, he kissed her throat softly, nipping gently as he did. He could smell her perfume, a sweet scent that drove him mad. Kissing her back hard, he cupped her face. But, as she started kissing his neck, he moaned softly. His neck was super sensitive, and the easiest way to turn him on. He took her hands and managed to sign ‘more anna…more!’
Anna had wondered how they were going to communicate during times like these. Not like she could read his lips and if they broke away constantly to say something, not much would get done. But Hayden had figured it out and it made her smile against his neck. Sure the signs were a little sloppy but she knew what he was saying to her at least and it was a good idea, one she hadn’t even thought about.
So she followed the signs he had made with her hands and continued to kiss at the crook of his neck before making her way down towards his collar bone where she sucked and kneaded on the flesh there. While one hand held onto his the other pressed against his chest, making the ‘I love you’ sign, silently telling him this as she worked her lips against his flesh.
It was like the first time he had signed in her hands. It was enough to get the point by, and while he was better at signing, the fact that she knew what he was signing was a good sign. He soon forogt about it when he was kissing her again, their fingers twined together.
As she kissed at his neck, and then sucked at his collarbone, he moaned, groaning. It was one of his soft spots. It always turned him on more than anything. He smiled as he felt the ‘i love you’ sign against his chest, moaning more as her lips worked against his chest.
"Anna," he signed against her skin softly, kising her own neck groaning, his hands working along her curves. He felt like he was in heaven and everything he was experiencing made his own toes curl.
This seemed to be going a lot smoother than she had expected her first make out session to go. Hayden had this calming effect on her even though he made her heart race at the same time. But the heart racing was from excitement and pleasure, not from nervousness because after a few minutes of his gentle and silent coaching, she felt safe and comfortable with him. Not to mention he had thought of a way for them to communicate during moments like these. She had been racking her brain for ideas and hadn’t even thought to ask him, figuring as the deaf person, it would be up to her. Even one of her deaf friends had said not to expect the hearing person to remember that you can’t talk during moments like these and that you need a way to communicate… but Hayden had thought about it and it touched her heart. And it made her blush when she realized that he must’ve been thinking about making out with her in order to come up with the idea of using her hands to sign what he wanted to tell her. It was brillant and it was sweet to know he had come up with this idea without her prompting him to help.
Just as her lips worked against his neck, he did the same to her, causing her to shiver. The warmth in her stomach got hotter and hotter with each kiss and nibble he gave her skinn, making her press as close to him as she could. Anna wasn’t sure what was supposed to come next after they started kisses to the neck and when he finger spelled her name against the palm of her hand, she pulled away to look him in the eyes.
"Should we uh…" she had to trail off and take in a deep breath, trying to calm her racing heart. Her eyes moved to look at his lips and she had the strongest urge to just lean back in and kiss him again. But she got in control of her hormones and asked him, “Should we slow down? I um… I don’t think I’m ready for anything other than what we’re doing now… and if we don’t stop now… I may not be able to stop later." she confessed the last part with a shy and innocent look on her face, feeling embarrassed.
He had given it some thought, because, well, he wanted to let her know how good he felt, and she deserved to know. He knew it would be her first time making out, or even being intimate, so he made an effort to make sure she felt safe. it was about a few weeks before the actual moment came up that he had looked up some things, or looke at handshapes and ones that would be good during intimate moments (and needed only one hand).
as he kissed down her neck he smiled as he felt her shivering under his touch. He felt himself moaning again. Her skin tasted delicious. Sweet, salty, and he could smell her perfume. It was a mix of sensual stimuli that rove Hayen all but crazy.
As she pulled away and made him look her in the eyes, his own softened and he nodded. “Of course," she said softly and then smiled. “We don’t need to do anything you don’t want to do." He stroked her face lovingly. “I wouldn’t want that." He breathed out softly and hugged her close, pulling her into his lap.
