Olivia had never thought she'd see Aiden other than her sister's best friend who is constantly a thorn in her shoes, but after they accidentally made out, things changed between them. Aiden is that one man she should not want. He's forbidden. Off Limits. A certified man whore who doesn't do relationship. And what's worse? Her sister's best friend.View More
OLIVIAMy eyebrows furrow. Is Aiden messing around with me? Is this some kind of joke? I re-read the message several things to make sure I hadn't misread it. I am not playing tricks on myself. The words are still there, staring back at me. He wanted me to leave the door unlocked, so he could come over.I don't believe it.Why would he want to come over? Shouldn't he be with my sister right now? He should be with Sarah, not coming over to see me. It doesn't make sense.I begin typing a response, my fingers flying over the keyboard in a blur. I hit ‘’ send ‘’ and watch the message go through. Me - What do you mean? Are you really coming? I see that the message icon turns blue indicating that he has seen it. I wait, but the typing indicator never appears. I stare at the screen, willing the three little dots to show up, but they never do.I wait for a few more minutes, thinking the network is preventing his message from reaching me, but still, I don't get any message from him. My ey
OLIVIAI am at a loss for words. I don't know what to say or how to react. I just sit there with my mouth hanging open, staring at my sister like she has grown horns.Of course, I can see Aiden standing next to her out of the corner of my eye, but I act like I don't even see him. Maybe, if I pretend he is not there, I'll believe it and get through it. But, how can I keep it up when my palms are already starting to sweat? I don't even know what's wrong with me. I don't know why I am behaving this way. I don't know if it is because my sister is here or because her best friend who ditched me is also here. “ Olivia,” A familiar voice breaks through my train of thoughts. I shake myself out of the daze, and I try to get a grip on myself. I am here on a date with Nathan. I shouldn't let myself get caught up in thoughts of my sister or her best friend. “ Olivia?” Nathan's voice calls out to me again.As I turn to face him, I force a smile."What's up?" I ask."Are you okay?" Nathan asks
OLIVIANathan's lips press against mine. His hand slides to my waist, and he pulls me close. I can't ignore how my body fits against his.I kiss him back, and he sucks on my bottom lip. I do the same to him, butterflies fluttering in my stomach. Nathan stops kissing me, and I lean back, his eyes locked on mine. The corners of his mouth curl into a bright smile. Before I can even return the smile, he leans in again for another kiss, this one even more passionate than the last. I notice how careful Nathan is being with his hand placement. His hand is just caressing my back, without going any further. Maybe, he is trying not to make me uncomfortable. I don't mind, though. I can't help but imagine that it is Aiden holding and kissing me instead. His hand would have been inside my top, if it were him.“ Ai… Nathan,” I mutter.Well deserved. My dumb ass shouldn't be fantasizing about the brown eyed devil while kissing someone else. Nathan's hand leaves my waist and he pulls away from t
OLIVIA"Are you okay?" I hear Nathan's voice in my head, but it feels like I am not really hearing him. It is as if my subconscious mind hasn't registered his voice enough to register that he's called my name."Olivia," Nathan calls my name.I blink a few times, tearing my gaze away from my phone and up to Nathan's face."Are you okay?" He asks again.I force a smile. "Yeah, I'm fine," I reply, hoping I sound more convincing than I feel.Am I really okay? No, I'm not. I don't know why, but I am confused. Really confused that I have so many thoughts swirling in my head, and none of them can answer the questions in my mind.Why would Sarah tag me in a post with pictures of her and Aiden? What was she thinking? Now, I am left wondering why Nathan and I are headed to the ice cream hub as Sarah and Aiden.Damn, this is crazy. I need to get these thoughts out of my head, or I will zone out and bore Nathan to death. I don't want him to regret inviting me over. I need to get a fucking grip
OLIVIA"Hey," I say to the cab driver. "Can you take a different route? I've changed my plans."The cab driver nods, his eyes meeting mine in the rearview mirror. I give him a little smile and he smiles back before turning his attention back to the road.I let out a sigh of relief. He seems like a nice guy. At least, he is not the type of cab driver who will blame me for wasting their time and changing my plans.I give the driver directions to Nathan's house. I will just tip him extra. Look at me just trying to enjoy the moment, without worrying that I may go broke later.I blame Aiden freaking Blacksmith. Fuck him for inviting me out and then ditch me. Fuck him for not even trying to give me a ride after that. Fuck him. I'm so mad at him.I open the messenger app and see Nathan's last text. I know he is probably waiting for me to reply. What if I am just delusional? What if he doesn't even give a damn if I don't text back? Maybe, he is not even waiting for me to text back and has a
OLIVIAI pack my things carefully into my bag, making sure not to forget anything. After double checking that everything is already there, I sling my bag over my shoulder, ready to leave."Olivia!"I hear Aiden call out, but I pretend not to hear him. I need to get away from this place, before he gets there. I don't want to see him. I don't want to talk to him. He should just leave me alone.I step away from the blanket and begin putting on my sneakers. I can hear Aiden's footsteps approaching, and I know he will be here soon. I need to get away quickly. I finish putting on my sneakers and walk away. I am walking at a brisk pace, but I'm not running.Before long, I find myself standing outside the garden. My eyelids drop as I realize that I won't be able to have the sweet moments here again. Maybe someday I will come back, either alone or with my best friend. I turn on my phone and tap open the map app. Fuck, I can't believe I came all the way here with Aiden without even knowing
OLIVIAAiden glances at the phone, then turns to me. " Excuse me," He utters.I nod my head. At least, he asked before answering the call. It is a small victory, but I will take it. A win is a win.I watch Aiden pick up the phone from the blanket and bring it to his ear.Fuck, the phone is not on speaker mode. I won't be able to hear what their convo is all about. What is wrong with me? Why do I even care about what they are talking about?I should not care about what they are saying, but I can't help myself. When do I become so nosy? It is as if it started just now.Aiden's mouth tilts into a lopsided smile. I swallow hard, as a knot forms in my chest.What is Aiden talking to my sister about that has him beaming like that?My fists clench, my fingernails digging into my palms. What is wrong with me? It is just a phone call. Aiden and my sister are just friends. I should not be feeling this way. But the more I think about it, the heavier that knot in my chest becomes. I am a mes
OLIVIAMy lip quivers between my teeth, and I can feel my cheeks flush with color. I know I must look like a beetroot right now, but I am too wrapped up in the moment to mind. There is silence between us, the only sound I can hear is the chirping of birds and the rustle of the warm breeze through the trees.The warm breeze blows my hair, causing stray strands to fall over my face before being carried away by the wind.I swallow a gulp down my throat. His eyes are locked on mine, and I am starting to feel nervous again.I said I didn't care about keeping eye contact, but now it seems like I have butterflies in my stomach. I am so fucked."And, why are you not saying anything?" Aiden asks, his voice cutting through my thoughts.I give a half-hearted shrug, tucking a few loose strands of hair behind my ear. "So, you really want to spend time alone with me?" I ask."Yes," He replies."Why?" I press."Do you really need me to answer that?" He shoots back. I send him a glare in response.
OLIVIAI step into a pile of leaves. My heart leaps into my throat as I worry I will lose my balance, but I quickly steady myself. "Be careful," Aiden’s voice resounds in my ear from behind me. I just nod my head, my gaze fixed on the ground in front of me to avoid tripping. All of a sudden, Aiden's hand clasps mine. His hand holds mine, and our fingers intertwine. I swallow a lump down my throat as I turn to meet his gaze."I thought you were carrying two things in both hands," I utter. "I need to hold your hand, so you won't fall," He replies.He walks beside me. I notice that he is really carrying a small bag and a small basket in one hand. I have no idea why he is carrying them, but I suppose it must be for a good reason.“ Is that your way of being a perfect gentleman?” I ask.“Sure," He answers, a small smile tugging at the corner of his lips. “ If I can't keep you from tripping, who can?” The corners of my mouth curl into a smile.I can't help but smile; Aiden Blacksmith a
