"A man is the last thing on my mind!" I yelled over the music to my best friend who had very much insisted that I needed myself a man tonight and for a very long time.
She had already managed to drag me to this club with her but I wasn't about to let her pin some stranger on me as a task of hers.
She handed me a drink and as it hit my nostrils, I knew I'd be drunk before the night was over. I took one sip but she held the bottom of the glass to my mouth until I didn't have a choice but to drink its entire content. It burned the back of my throat as it made its way to my stomach.
"Good girl!" she yelled but I scolded her with my eyes.
"Ohhhhh! That's that song! Sacha! Let's hit the floor!" she said and tugged my arm with brute strength that it was impossible to pull away and not comply.
We were in the middle of the dance floor, dancing to songs of the HipHop genre.
I turned my hip to the beat of the music and got in tune with the environment I was in. For once, I wanted to be carefree and not have to worry about tomorrow, and maybe it was the effect of the alcohol already doing its damage, but I wasn't caring anymore.
I continued dancing and when the song was almost over, I stumbled into something harder than my life.
I tripped backwards but was caught firmly by the wrist and waist before the floor ever got a chance to feel me on it.
"Hey, I'm sorry. I didn't see you there, are you alright?"
I immediately watched the person who caught me. A guy. A rather damn good looking guy with captivating green emerald eyes which should be somewhat difficult to see the color of in a poorly lit neon club but I couldn't miss it.
As I settled on my own feet, I took him in some more. He wore a faded pair of jeans with a white formal T-shirt and black shoes. His hair was of jet black and styled neatly on his head. His perfect tanned skin tone was like a combination color of coffee mixed with milk and I wanted to drink that.
"I asked if you're alright?" his masculine voice repeated and I nodded my head yes, too struck by his appearance to speak.
Remy caught up with me and handed me another drink. I turned in the direction of the sexy stranger but he had disappeared.
"Who was that guy?" I asked myself.
"What guy?" Remy caught my voice.
"Some guy who caught me from falling," I answered.
"Wow, look who's now interested in a guy," she teased.
"I didn't even thank him properly," I said.
"Oh, you need you didn't give him the cherry to pop!"
''Remy! I swear, you're the worst!" I laughed and sent the drink to the back of my throat without a second thought.
We continued dancing as the Disc Jockey spun more songs fit for dancing and grooving to.
At last, Remy became tired and so did I. We were sitting on a couch together in a VIP section that we didn't even have tickets for. How we ended up there will forever be a mystery but I wanted to go home to my kid sister. She was left with Remy's mom but everyone knows she could be on the wild side. Maybe that's where Remy got her craziness from. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
"I'll call a cab," Remy said with a yawn and she retrieved her cell phone but let out a loud laugh when she saw the battery was dead.
"You didn't charge your phone before leaving?" I asked.
"No, why didn't you charge it?" she asked me.
"Because I'm not in charge of charging your phone, that's why!"
"Where's yours then?"
"I left it with Judy in case she had to call. I thought yours would be of function tonight."
"Wellllll, it's not."
"Yeah, I can see that," I told her and she let out another crazy laughter. It was obvious she was wasted and I was myself but at least my common sense was still intact.
I held her up and we footed it out of the club to catch a cab before the hours got more late than it already was.
As we waited and waited, no cabs showed up and I was beginning to worry. I had a bottle of water and drenched Remy's face with it when she tried to fall asleep on the street.
That was why I hated the clubs and alcohol.
I steadied Remy onto a tiny board bench and looked at my wrist watch again.
The cab drivers must all be sleeping or were just not coming into this area at this time.
I sat next to Remy on the bench when a black Lamborghini pulled up.
Out came the handsome stranger who caught me before I fell in the club.
"Need a ride?" he asked. I quickly got off my feet to enter his car but the excitement died when a question popped into my head.
"Who are you?" I asked.
"I'm Christian, and you?"
"I'm Sacha and this is my best friend Remy."
"Why is her face so wet?"
"I've been trying to keep her awake," I answered as I hid the bottle of water behind my back.
He chuckled warmly as he came over to help Remy to her feet and took her into the back seat of the car. I got into the front but I quickly registered the digits on his number plate in my mind.
It was a habit of mine whenever accepting rides from strangers.
"Where to exactly?" he asked and I gave him directions to Remy's apartment because she wasn't capable of doing such.
She had fallen asleep and Christian was nice enough to carry her indoors and set her down on the couch in the living room.
"Thank you so much for taking us home, and for carrying her ...and for catching me in the club," I finished with an awkward laugh.
"It's my pleasure. Good night then. Hope I'll see you again."
"Good night," I said and closed the door after him. I felt like I was in highschool again receiving the attention from the most popular boy.
I face palmed myself when I remembered that I didn't even get his number.
How would I see him again?
Sacha's POV"Euuugghhhh!" Remy groaned from the couch the following morning, "I feel like a dick that is stuck in a very tight underwear and can hardly breathe," she finished, causing me to let out a loud laughter. Remy always had the craziest set of things to say."That's what happen when you drink too much alcohol," I told her as I started preparing a fresh batch of pancakes for breakfast in the kitchen."How the hell did we get home?" she asked, coming into the kitchen and heading for the fridge."Christian dropped us home. He even carried you to the couch.""Okay, hold up! Who the fuck is Christian?""The guy from the club, I doubt you'll even remember when I told you that he caught me from falling."She huffed, indicating a 'no'."He's handsome though. His eyes are like vibrant green, my fingers wanted to ruffle his jet black hair. When he caug
Sacha's POV"Are you going to invite me in, or just stare the whole time?" he asked with a smirk."What..oh yeah, sure, come on in," I gestured as I moved out of the way to let him through. He walked in as if he owned the place and when his eyes landed on Remy and Judy in the living room, he turned to me."You remember Remy?" I asked. Remy's mouth dropped opened too and Christian laughed."Yes, the one I had to carry," he recollected."Right, and next to her is Judy. My kid sister.""Hi Judy," he greeted with a wave and Judy waved back to him."You two wouldn't mind if I steal Sacha for a few hours?" he asked them and I felt butterflies in my stomach.Are we going somewhere?Is he about to ask me out on a date?"She's all yours," Remy quickly let out.He turned to me."I'll go get d
Sacha's POVThe next afternoon, I held onto my cellphone with shaking fingers as I dialed Christian's number. I brought the phone up to my ear and my heart beat increased with every ring."Christian," his voice came."H..hi, it's me. Sacha," I stuttered but managed to let out.He remained silent, just listening, so I spoke again. "I've made up my mind and I accept your offer.""Are you sure? I don't want you to feel like you're being forced or manipulated by me. I need this to be one hundred percent your choice," he explained."It is my choice," I quickly covered."Good. I'll see you in thirty minutes.""Wait, you're coming to get me?""Yes," he responded before hanging up the phone.____I ran into Remy's bedroom to get freshened up and dress. I slipped into a black lace panties and a matching bra.
Sacha's POV"How is it possible to not get all up in feelings for him? That dude is finer than baby hair," Remy said when I explained to her about the contract, which was something I shouldn't be doing either but Remy was my best friend."I know right. But if I want twelve million dollars, I can't develop any feelings for him. He said if he catches the tiny bit of feelings, he'll end it.""Then what about after the contract expires. Are you just supposed to pretend like y'all never fucked?""I guess so," I answered as I stepped out of Remy's shoes and my dress. I hooked up my hair for bed. Judy was already asleep and it was almost mid-night. I fought a yawn as my phone vibrated on the couch."Hello.""I need you right now.""Christian, but it's almost mid-night. I'm also getting ready for bed.""You've read the contract. It said you have to please m
Sacha's POVI sat on his special-made bed in his bedroom, waiting for him to get out of the shower. It was now time for our very first encounter and I was shaking like a leaf during a storm."You're still dress?" he asked, stepping into my vision, wrapped with a white bath towel around his lower body. He looked at me attentively as I got off the bed and started taking off my clothes."Slower," he ordered and I obliged. I removed the straps to my dress as if I was in a slow motion film and Christian was the director. The dress dropped to my feet and I stepped out of it."Leave those on," he ordered again, stating that I should remain in my underwear.He moved closer towards me and pulled me against his rock hard chest. He trailed his lips to my neck, just as before, and sucked on my sensitive parts. He then tilted my face upwards to his and kissed me passionately. I responded as best as I could. Wave
Christian's POVI pulled onto the pavement and Audrey immediately got out of the car when it came to a stop. She walked quickly into the mansion and I followed behind."It's nice that you're finally home, Christian. How was work?" Her voice carried anger."Work is work. What's the matter with you again?" I asked her as I checked my emails in my phone."You're seriously asking me that question? YOU'RE NEVER HOME! I feel like it's me alone who's in this relationship here.""Audrey, why are you complaining when this is what you asked for? You knew about my busy schedules but you wanted to move in with me regardless. You chose to quit your job because I've got money. Now you expect me to stay at home with you and keep you company?""I want a baby, Christian!""And I told you that I'm not ready for kids!""We've been together for two years, Christian! Tw
Christian's POVI gathered the guys in my living room the very next day. I handed them each a cold beer before taking a seat, opposite them."So, what's up man, are we on for the trip or not?" Kevin eagerly asked before drinking from his beer."No, because someone couldn't keep their mouth shut!" I answered and dart my eyes on Tim. He gulp and drank his beer as a diversion."And, my mother is coming over this weekend," I finished and my friends' faces turned sympathetic. They knew my mother was a very obnoxious woman who always wanted things her way or no way at all. She thought she was always right and her favorite line was 'mother knows best'."Christian, I'm so sorry. I left a message and Audrey must have listen to it. I just wanted to know if we were taking your private jet or mine," Tim explained."Look, it's fine. That's Audrey for you. We could always do the Caribbean trip an
Sacha's POVThe very next morning, I was rather nervous about packing and moving out of Remy's place but I knew I couldn't stay with her forever and this was for the better.I collected some large garbage bags from her kitchen and started throwing all my belongings, along with Judy's, into them. At mid-day, Remy came home and saw me packing."Sach! What's going on?""Hi, I'm..ah...Judy and I are moving out but I want to thank you for having the both of us here," I told her."Moving out? To go where?""I found a place.""What place? Where? Why didn't you say anything to me about this before?""Remy, I just got the place, and it's for the better. You're always telling me that I can't sleep on your couch forever.""I know you can't but this is too sudden. Is this about the stuff? Sacha, I'll give you back everything, I swear."
