Mature Literature Alert.....kinda but not really
"Hmmmmm. You know what? You, my dear friend, have very unique hip bone structure" I said taking taking a needle from in between my lips
"Thanks, I guess" Arlyn laughed as I twisted her around
"Your very welcome"
Today had been an extremely busy day for me. I had been preparing for our night out on the town to close the week at 'Bungalow 6'. Since everyone was going to be wearing something made by me I had a lot of work to do. But it wasn't anything I didn't love doing. The girls had been in and out of Piper and I's loft all day. Some of the girls had usual measurements so, I could get away with a few minor adjustments to things I had already made. But a few didn't so that meant I had to create from scratch. I took a few more measurements of her as we chatted about her magazine publishing offer.
"Oh my goodness!! I'm like seriously ecstatic for you!! & Piper!!"
"I know!!" she laughed "I am too! I know this may sound weird but I keep having to pull the letter out of my pocket and read just the one line to make sure this is all real"
"I don't blame you!! You deserve it, your laptop is practically glued to the palm of your hand all the time!"
"Well hey it paid off didn't it!" she joked
"What can I say, when you right your right"
Halfway through Arlyn's measuring, there was a light knock at the door.
"It's open!" I called out, Brynley and Kennedy stuck there heads in the door
"You ready for us yet?" Kennedy asked
"Yea, sure. I'm almost done with Arlyn just take a seat....if your lucky enough to find one" I glanced around our loft, there was stuff everywhere.
"So," Brynley started "Arlyn, what did Andrew say back in the text?"
"Oohhh yea!! What did he say, or wait have you even text him back yet?" Kennedy added
I smiled as Arlyn's eyes went to the back of her head.
"For the both of you's information yes. Yes I text him and he did text back"
"Okay what did he say?"
"The usual..cocky, annoying,...need I say more"
"Sure thing babe. Cocky, annoying, and yet still undeniably irristable to you!!" we all burst into laughter
"He is not!!" she tried to deny but was smiling "I'm so serious I do not like him!"
"Okay your good" I said to her and she hopped down from the chair I had her standing in
"Kennedy, your up babe" Arlyn took Kennedy's seat
As I was about to start on Kennedy's measurements there was another knock at the door. These were the last two girls so I knew it couldn't have been any of the rest of them.
"Come in!" I called
"I know I should have called first but is it a bad time?" Alec said coming from behind the door. I smiled.
"No it's not a bad time, these are actually the last two girls. Come in"
I don't know how but lately he was beginning to bring out the softer side in me, which I didn't even think existed. He spoke to Kennedy, Arlyn, and Brynley as he took a seat. They continued to chatter on about Brynley's recent mystery meeting with her best friend, Chris, and Arlyn's magazine publishing. I kept glancing at Alec thinking that maybe he would get a little bothered being in a room with girls just gossiping and chattering but it didn't seem like we were bothering him in the least. He just sat and watched me very closely, as if no one else was even in the room. As a matter of fact I knew the eyes he was giving me, all to well. I tried to act as normal as possible in front of the girls but he was making it very hard. I even made the mistake of poking myself with the pin I was stitching with more than once. Once I was done the three of them, they left together to grab a bite to eat. I smiled as I shut the door behind them. I made my way back into our main room where he was sitting and tried to clean up some of the mess I had going on.
"I want you to come over ti my house tonight?" he asked still sitting and staring
"Alec, as much as I want to you know I can't do that" I smiled not looking at him, for fear of giving in
"Yes you can, I can even help you."
"Really nice try but somehow I don't think that's possible. Besides I have tons of work to do and this has to get done"
He got up and made his way over to me. I still wasn't turning towards him. He got closer to me, embracing me from behind.
"What if I tell you I have an idea, that I guarantee will help you get all of this done and more."
"I'd say what is it?" I closed my eyes and tilted my head as he began to kiss the napes of my neck
"Let's just call it creative multi-tasking..."
Half an hour later Alec and I were walking through the doors of his apartment. With our hands full of all my stuff for the night. I would say, I set up and I was working for a good ten minutes before he was giving me those eyes again. For a minute I tried to discipline myself and continued to work. But it didn't work, so I turned around and faced him from where I was standing. He was still positioned on his sofa, eyes on me. Slowly I brought the straps on my top down to my shoulders, and watched it as it fell to the ground. He laughed. I slid out of my skirt. We hadn't taken our eyes off one another and I stood there still in my heels, with nothing but my La Perla on. Given the circumstance, this night wouldn't be wasted if I at least got one design done....................
