Who was at the door? Briana wondered. Cole wouldn’t ring the bell because he had a key. Briana leapt from bed, her short flared bareback dress swishing sexily around her thighs. She rushed downstairs to check out who it was. Surprisingly she hadn’t heard from Cole. He should have been home by now. Home! It felt good to think of Cole’s house as home. She was busting with nerves. She didn’t know how her parents took the news or whether they had accepted Cole’s request. If the way her dad had spoken to her was anything to go by, they accepted. On the other hand, Cole’s silence gave all indications that all was not well. Somebody should just put her out of her misery already!
Briana checked the security slot, saw Matt and Jen and threw the door wide open.
“Hey there Beautiful.” Matt beamed drawing Briana into a bear hug.
“What are you guys doing here?”
“Don’t you want us here?” Matt asked with a mock scowl whilst Jen’s laughter rang out sweetly.
“I just want Jen to tell me she’s here because of me and not Cole. Oh and for your information, Cole is not here.”
“I AM here because of you darling.” Jen said giving Briana a kiss on each cheek. “And as for Cole, we knew he wasn’t here.” She said allowing Matt to take her coat.
“He should have been home by now. I’ve tried calling him but his phone is off.” Briana said sounding worried.
“Maybe you should call him with this.” Matt said handing Briana a nicely wrapped box.
“Just unwrap it woman. What will you drink Honey?” Matt asked Jen, his fiancée of four months.
“Any sweet wine will do Baby.” Jen replied watching Matt with so much love Briana smiled. “Ok take it out Briana. Let’s see what it is.” Jen told Briana excitedly.
But even before Briana could finish unwrapping the box, she heard a phone ringing inside it. She dug inside and took out a Blackberry Z10 with a silver-studded cover which was still ringing. Briana couldn’t help the smile that spread across her face. She loved this phone.
“Hello?” She said breathlessly into the phone.
“Hey.” Came Cole’s sexy voice. “How do you like your new phone?”
“Oh my God, Cole, I love it.” Briana couldn’t suppress the happy laughter that bubbled up. “Thanks.”
“Pleasure. I’ll be home soon okay?”
“I love you.”
“I love you.” Briana responded and quickly hanged up to check out the phone.
“Alright now what to do whiles I wait for that Asshat.” Matt said looking through Cole’s music collection. But before he could even select one, the doorbell rang again.
“I’ll get it.” Briana said rushing to the door. She couldn’t keep the smile off her face. And this time she didn’t bother checking to see who it was. She simply threw the door open to find Michael and a really lovely lady who Briana couldn’t help but notice was pregnant. She was a beauty.
“You must be Briana.” The lady said in a sweet voice.
“Yes I am. Hey Michael.” Briana blushed furiously remembering the position in which Michael had seen her the day before. That shameless Cole will be the death of her.
Michael could tell Briana’s thought by taking in how red her face had become and drew her into his arms, asking teasingly, “You guys ready to give me another style to use today? Because Mary and I had fun doing yesterday’s.”
Briana yelped with laughter and swatted him, her embarrassment forgotten. “You are an asshole Michael.”
“Good to see you too Sweetie. This here is my beautiful wife Mary.”
“Hi Mary.” Briana said giving Mary a hug. “You are so beautiful.”
“Thanks. And you are simply gorgeous. I love that dress. It’s hot.”
Briana blushed and murmured her thanks drawing Mary into the living room where Jen and Matt were kissing like nothing else existed.
“Break it up you two.” Michael bellowed at them.
There were hugs all around. Then Michael handed over another sweetly wrapped box to Briana.
“From you know who. Open it.” He said with a teasing glint in his eye.
Laughing with a surprised look on her face, Briana opened it quickly but before she could expose the gift inside, she saw a leaflet inside the box and gasped as she read it. It was a Rolex Datejust Ladies Watch which had a case made of white gold that weighed 18 karats. The case was also set with diamonds. It had a pave case and dial with an oyster karat bracelet. Briana removed the leaflet and stared dumfounded at the exquisite watch inside the box. Inside the lid was an inscription: ‘whenever I think of perfection, I think of you.’
“Breathe Briana, breathe.” Matt said softly.
“Oh my God!” Briana whispered. This obviously must have cost a fortune. What in blazes did Cole think he was doing?
Jen took the box from her and took out the watch. Then dropping the box on a side table, took Briana’s left hand and fixed the watch on her wrist.
“This is simply lovely.” Jen whispered but everyone heard and nodded their agreement. Briana was so much engrossed in the watch on her wrist she jumped when there was a loud knock on the door.
“That can only be Dean the idiot. Did he see the bell at all? Briana, go get it.” Matt said going to the bar for more drink.
Briana opened the door warily, wondering what was coming next. The latest Blackberry, an expensive watch, what next?
It was Dean and Kyle. Dean had in his hand a wrapped box and Kyle’s were filled with six beautiful ultra-long red roses which were up to 6ft tall, accompanied by a personalized note card which said ‘I desire nobody but you.’ They were simply exquisite. Briana burst into tears.
“I don’t think she likes roses.” Dean whispered loudly to Kyle.
“Fuck of Dean. Come here Angel.” Kyle said drawing Briana into his arms with one hand.
“You know these are very expensive Kyle, we can always go pawn it off and tell Cole she’s allergic or something. She has tears in her eyes for goodness sake. She must be allergic.”
“Shut up Dean.” Briana said though her tears, starting to shake with mirth. “I love them.”
“Damn! And here I was, thinking I could make a quick buck.” Dean groaned pulling Briana into a hug too. “You better hide them or I swear I’ll steal them.”
“You wouldn’t dare.” Briana said laughing. She was overwhelmed by all the gifts. Who wouldn’t be?
“We’re crazy about you sweetie. All of us, not just the Dickhead. Be happy.” He added in a whisper.
“Thanks Dean.” Briana whispered back.
“Here…” Dean said handing over the nicely wrapped box he was holding.
She noticed that the box was also accompanied by a personalized note card. It said ‘You complete me’. She tore the wrapper with shaky fingers, her eyes widening when she uncovered a bejewelled jewellery box. But when she opened it, she gasped loudly, her hand going to her chest. Jen and Mary couldn’t contain their gasps either. Even the guys looked awed. And then Matt started singing ‘Diamonds are Forever’, the James Bond soundtrack in his deep voice which made everyone except Briana, laugh. She was speechless.
Inside the box was a jewellery set, comprising a lovely pair of pear-shaped, diamond earrings, a beautiful diamond necklace which had a number of pear-cut diamonds set in white gold with a diamond star clasp, an elegant white gold and diamond bracelet, with the diamonds interspersed beautifully along the gleaming white gold, and finally, a gorgeous white gold rolo chain anklet enhanced with tiny sparkling diamonds.
Briana sat on the couch and just stared at the box of dazzling, obviously expensive jewellery in her hands. She had to make an effort to still her trembling hands. She looked stunned. Everyone got themselves more drinks and conversation just flowed around her.
When the doorbell rang again, Briana just sat looking dazed.
“Briana?” Kyle prompted her. Her heart was fluttering so hard in her chest she started taking deep breaths, making everyone laugh. Who were left? Damon, Chris and Tyron.
“Okay here goes.”
But when she opened the door, it was to find Tyron and a screaming Kayla, pushing a serving trolley which had on it a really large box, which was obviously a cake. “We’re going shopping.” She screamed.
Briana didn’t get it. Going shopping with a cake?
Kayla wheeled the cake into the living room, and gave Briana a kiss on both cheeks. Then Tyron pulled out an envelope from his pocket and waved it in front of Briana with a grin.
“For this, I need a kiss. Actually, make that two.” He said in his deep voice. Briana laughed softly and went up on tiptoes to kiss Tyron on both cheeks. Tyron gave her the envelope with a bow.
Briana almost had a heart attack when she took out the Maxfield gift card inside the envelope. It was worth Five Hundred Thousand Dollars! And her name was boldly printed on the card.
“Shit!” She swore.
“Oh no she didn’t just say that.” Dean bellowed.
“Oh yeah she did.” Tyron answered with a serious look making everyone howl with laughter.
“I…I…re…really can’t accept this.” Briana stuttered, hot tears already spilling down her cheeks. She was overwhelmed with emotions.
“I’ll take it.” Kayla said snatching the card from Briana. But Kyle snatched it right back and handed it back to a stunned Briana.
“The man wants to spoil you. Enjoy it my dear.” Jen screamed. Everybody looked happy but solemn, seeing Briana so emotional.
“Come sit beside me Love. You look like you’re going to fall over anytime soon.” Mary said drawing Briana into the seat beside her and rubbing her on the back soothingly. Briana felt fragmented, dazed by the events that were happening too fast to allow her to catch her breath, to make sense of what was happening.
“What is wrong with her?” Everyone turned to the door at Cole’s bellow.
“Well let’s just say we have one confused Beauty on our hands. What did you expect?” Dean retorted.
Cole walked slowing to where Briana sat looking almost scared, and went down on one knee in front of her. A hush fell over the room. No one even noticed the presence of Damon and Chris. With Damon holding a large bottle of Armand de Brignac “Ace of Spades” Rose, which was one of the most expensive champagnes in the world, and Chris holding a wrapped object that looked like a painting. All eyes were on Cole and Briana. Cole reached up to wipe the tears from Briana’s cheeks…which kept right on flowing anyway, and then caught her hands in both of his, lifting them to his lips to kiss her knuckles.
“Briana Lisa Scott,” Cole started, ignoring the fact that Briana was bawling her eyes out. “Will you…” But he got cut off.
“Y…you said you woul…dn’t ask.” Briana stuttered through her tears.
“Oh come on, let the man ask?” Dean shouted.
“Shut up Dean.” Mary shouted through her own tears.
“Angel I have to. At least these witnesses here must be able to testify that I asked and you accepted so that I can sue that sweet arse of yours if you change your mind.” Cole joked making Briana smile through her tears. God, she was beautiful. He continued in a solemn voice:
“Briana, I can’t imagine growing old with anyone else nor do I want to. There are many ways to be happy in this life but all I really need is you. I know my life will never be complete without you beside me to share it. I promise you, no one will work harder to make you happy or cherish you more than me. And I know that no one else will ever hold my heart the way you do.” Cole had to stop for a while; his voice throbbed with so much emotion. When he started speaking again, his voice was softer, resonating with power, a heated emotion that had Briana’s heart tripling in speed.
“You deserve the very best, someone who will back you up without limits, let you grow without borders, and love you without end. Will you let me be the one?”
“Yes.” Briana whispered through her tears. She felt emotionally spent now and did not care that tears were streaming down her face.
“Then marry me Briana. Make me the happiest man alive. Please!” Cole ended in a shaky voice.
Briana got off the seat and knelt in front of Cole. Her warm hands framed Cole’s face as she stared into his eyes with eyes shining with tears and so much love. Then a determined look passed over her features and she smiled tentatively. Even with all the tears running down her face, Cole thought she looked delicious.
“Cole Adams,” She started in a shaky voice, “I want to be one with you, to possess you as you possess me, to touch you as often as I wish, to bear your children. I want to feel you inside me, to feel you quicken in my grasp. I need you…most desperately.” Then in a whisper which everyone heard anyway, she said, “God, you make me so hot.”
She paused when the guys roared with laughter, and then finished in a softer voice, “I want to be your lover, your wife, your mate for life. Yes I will marry you.”
“Dude, she obviously just wants you for your body.” Dean shouted making everyone dissolve into fits of laughter.
But Cole ignored them and crushed Briana’s lips with his, taking her mouth with searing possession, tasting her with slow, deep licks. That kiss was soul shattering, mind-blowing, the ‘hold on to something because you just may fall’ type. Everybody ceased to exist; it was just the two of them. It felt like hours before they came up for air. Briana was trembling and trying to get some air into her lungs and Cole’s breathing was slightly labored. He pressed his forehead to Briana’s and said in a husky voice.
“So…you just want me for my body.” Briana laughed low and deep at his mock scowl.
“I can’t possibly say what I just did in church on my wedding day can I? This was my only chance to let you know just how much I adore that hot body of yours.”
“Now that’s what I’m talking about girl.” Jen said hi-fiving Mary.
“The ring dude, the ring.” Damon barked which brought a smattering of laughter from the others.
Kayla wheeled the cake closer to Cole and uncovered it. Everybody started clapping. Briana covered her mouth in amazement at the classically elegant cake before her. It was a two tier cake, topped with a bouquet of gum paste lilies, with additional roses on each tier. Around the top tier was written, ‘He Asked’. And around the tier at the bottom were the words, ‘And She Said Yes’.
It was a lovely cake but Briana’s gaze was riveted on the beautiful ring lying inside one of the lilies on top of the cake. It was the most exquisite ring she had ever seen. The beautiful piece of jewellery had a big cushion-cut diamond at the center, with about twenty miniature shimmers encircling the big one at center. It was simply breath-taking and Briana gasped.
“That’s a Five carat diamond Baby!” Kayla screamed making Jen and Mary gasp. “Yeah baby!” Kayla shook her waist as though she were dancing to an African beat.
“Oh my God, Cole,” Briana breathed, “It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen!”
“You are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen Baby.” Cole said with a catch in his voice. The look on Briana’s face was worth all the trouble he had gone through to make this day special for her. Of course everything that had taking place had been recorded. Briana was not aware but Matt had activated the camera when he had come in with Jen earlier. Cole couldn’t wait to see the look on Briana’s face as she received her engagement presents.
Cole reached out and took the ring off the cake. He took a deep breath, and presented it to Briana, allowing her to read the inscription on the inside of the ring which read: ‘Truly, Madly, Deeply. CA – BLS’. What made it even more wonderful was the fact that the inscription was actually in Cole’s handwriting.
“Will you do me the honour of becoming my wife?”
“What the fuck dude, she already said yes.” Dean shouted from his perch on top of the stairs. He was damned if he was going to stay down there for the guys to see the tears in his eyes. Shit! This was beautiful. Maybe one day he would feel like how Cole felt about some girl and pop the question. Till then, he was fucking going to cherish this moment forever.
“Sorry guys.” Cole said. “I’m just…” He trailed off to loud cheering and whistles from the guys. He wasn’t as controlled as he seemed after all.
He gently pushed the ring onto Briana’s finger and she saw flashes go off. Someone was obviously taking pictures. It was a perfect fit.
“I love you.” Briana whispered her eyes stinging with fresh tears. “I love you so much.”
“I love you more.” Cole choked, kissing her tenderly and oh so sweetly.
Everyone started applauding just as Damon popped the champagne. The women wiped their eyes, the guys already bringing out champagne glasses to taste the expensive bubbly. Cole helped Briana up but still kept her within the circle of his arms.
“Now, my turn.” Everyone turned to look at Chris tearing the wrapper off what he was holding to reveal a beautiful oil painting of a smiling Briana. Everyone stared at it. It was strikingly stunning. Briana remembered Cole taking that picture the second time they had made love. What caught her attention was the inscription at the bottom of the portrait:
‘Be my love Be my life, Be my happiness Be my wife, Be my sadness Be my tear, Be my sorrow Be my fear, Be my EVERYTHING…not now nor later, But from yesterday till FOREVER.’
Briana couldn’t help the tears that fell from her eyes. She opened her mouth to say something but the only sound that would come out was a sob. She was shaking so badly Cole was getting worried.
“Hey, stop crying Baby. I know they are tears of joy but it shreds me when you cry.” He said softly into her hair.
“I…I’m so…rry. I…” She couldn’t get the words out. She scrubbed furiously at one cheek and then the other.
“Shhhh.” Cole soothed and picked her up bridal style and headed for the stairs. “Have fun guys. We’ll be right back.” He threw over his shoulder getting some snickers from the guys.
“Take your time.” Damon hollered. “I would.”
They all moved to the dining area where there was a lovely spread of food, which had been delivered by a caterer whilst they had all been busy witnessing the beautiful proposal. None of them was ever going to forget this day.
Cole gently placed a still sobbing Briana on his massive bed and covered her body with his. Then he pulled out some tissues from the bedside drawer and cleaned her tears.
“There baby. Hush now.” He soothed gently, as he started dropping light kisses all over her face. Before long, he was plundering her mouth, his tongue sweeping into her mouth. Briana’s tongue met his, drawing him deeper, caressing over him, luxuriating in his intoxicating taste.
“I want to touch you.” Briana said urgently against Cole’s lips.
“You are touching me baby.”
But Briana twisted from under Cole’s body and straddled his hips. She gazed down at him, her eyes heavy lidded. He was so handsome, so goddamned sexy she still couldn’t believe that he was hers.
“Oh my God,” She breathed, captivated. “You are so fucking hot.”
“I love it when you look at me like that,” he murmured, his hands going to her hips. Cole thought her intense ‘I-want-to-fuck-you’ look was so hot.
“How am I looking at you?” She whispered.
“Like you want to eat me alive.” Cole said huskily. He was so aroused.
“You got that right.” She husked with an passionate look in her eyes. Cole groaned.
“I know. And I’m yours too.”
Her hands went to the front of his jeans, seeking the zipper. She could see and feel the thick ridge pressing against his fly. His fingers sank into her hips as she began to unzip him slowly.
“Baby, I’m about to explode.” Cole groaned as if he was in pain.
Briana forced his jeans down over his hips. She pushed the jeans together with his boxer briefs down to his angles. Then she came back up and took his hard cock into her warm hands. He was hard, throbbing and leaking.
“Jesus Baby.” Cole groaned pushing into her hands. He thrust his cock shamelessly into her palm, grinding. Her fingers curled around the thick, heavy length, her pulse quickening. Briana moved to kneel astride him, her panty clad pussy directly above the hard throbbing cock. Cole’s hands caught her around her hips beneath her dress. He was going out of his mind with desire. He couldn’t wait to feel Briana’s hot pussy around him. Briana reached between her thighs, pushed aside her panties, and gasped when she felt the strong length of his manhood brush tantalizingly against her.
Looking into his desire filled eyes with her own glazed ones, Briana slowly eased herself down, feeling the thick, waiting length of him probing eagerly at the soft, moist entrance of her body.
“Fuck!” Cole’s voice was a husky gasp as she carefully fitted herself to him. He shuddered. It was too much.
Briana felt a daring, feminine mischief rise inside her as she looked down into his stark face. Slowly she eased herself down another inch. He was so big, stretching her, filling her. The sensation was incredible. She was losing herself in the passion she saw in his eyes. She squeezed her internal muscles and marvelled at his reaction. His fingers bit into her thighs, and he threw his head back with a guttural cry.
“Fuck, Baby.” Cole exploded, “I’m sorry, Bri. I can’t wait. I can’t.” He groaned as his body took control, demanding release. His hands closed around her waist and he surged upward, driving deep into her damp, feminine sheath.
Briana cried out and fell forward, her hair spreading over his chest. The new angle pushed her throbbing clit right against his cock, and she delighted in the feel as she dragged herself up and down. The perfect pressure to that button drew a gasp from her as pleasure radiated throughout her whole body. As she gave herself up to the intoxicating rhythm, her fingers gripped his shoulders tightly. It was like riding a wild stallion. She rolled her hips, and moaned uncontrollably.
Cole couldn’t help the growl that tore from his throat. Briana had taken control again and he loved it. Damn! Her knees tightened around his waist and she felt his exhilarating response. For an endless time everything around her ceased to exist. There was Cole, only this man and this moment. Her chest tightened.
“Forever!” She whispered.
Hearing that whispered promise took Cole straight to the edge. He held Briana immobile, thrusting upward, over and over with powerful lunges. And then he gave himself up to the hot mind-blowing climax, flooding her with the warm evidence of his passion. He heard Briana scream his name as her body convulsed around him. It was almost unbearable. His hands were hard on her hips, his breath labored as his body shook.
Finally, blissfully, the violent tremors of rapturous pleasure eased and Briana collapsed on top of him, her head on his chest as she fought for breath.
Cole brought her head up and captured her trembling lips with his. The kiss, deep, desperate, so heart-stoppingly real, ushered her into another orgasm without warning. He felt it, groaning into her mouth as she contracted around him. She moaned into the kiss, trembling and shaking as pleasure swept through her. Cole held her till she collapsed on top of him, drained. God, he wanted to hold her and never let go.
He nuzzled his face in the crook of her neck. After a while, Briana lifted her head and looked down at Cole through half opened eyes as she felt little waves of pleasure dance through her. He had a bemused, tender expression on his face.
“Wow,” he whispered. “Fuck, so hot, Baby. So fucking good,”
“I love you Cole. And thank you.” She whispered.
“No thank YOU. For agreeing to put up with my bullshit for the rest of your life.”
Briana laughed at the teasing look on Cole’s face. “So tell me about your visit. How did it go?”
“I’ll tell you all about it when the monsters and the three beauties downstairs leave.”
“Alright. I guess we have to go down now.” Briana said with a groan.
“Yes we do.”
“Do you think they know that we just…”
“Oh yeah, they do.” Cole drawled starting to shake with laughter at the blush that spread across Briana’s face. “You did say to their hearing that you want to feel me inside you right? They know I’m up here granting your wish.” Cole said teasingly and roared with laughter when Briana groaned even louder.
It didn’t help when the first thing they heard when they got down was Tyron’s teasing question:
“Hope you kids used protection. Cos UCLA sure won’t accept babies in lecture halls.”
“I say fuck school, knock her up.” Dean yelled and everyone dissolved into fits of laughter. “You can always continue after the baby Briana Darling.” He ended with a wink making an already embarrassed Briana blush even more.
“I say you guys enjoy the world before bringing in babies.” Damon said to Cole. “From what I hear, they steal your wife right from under your nose man. Don’t do it. At least not now.”
“And who the fuck are you to talk?” Matt asked Damon, “Let the experienced folks talk. Hey Michael, did Melissa take Mary away from you?”
Michael took his eyes off a pregnant Mary and stared blankly at his friends. “What?” He asked making it obvious he hadn’t been following their conversation. He had eyes only for his sweet wife who had forgiven him for cheating on her.
All the guys groaned when Dean started going over what had been said. They stayed till late because the following day was a national holiday. After the last person, which was Kayla left, the still giddy pair headed upstairs to relax and talk about the days’ events.
“The fuck Briana?” Cole exploded, quickly sitting up. “How could you have forgotten something as important as that?”
“I’m sorry Cole.” Briana whimpered her eyes already filling with tears. “It has been two months. And I definitely wasn’t expecting to see you at the party last Friday. I’m sorry.” She finished sobbing now.
“Stop with the waterworks Bri. Your father was very clear on the matter. You are not supposed to get pregnant.”
“But I am not pregnant.”
“You don’t know that. For all you know you’re already carrying.”
“Will that be so bad?” Briana asked through her sobs.
“You’re missing the point woman. How will your dad perceive me now? After assuring him you are not pregnant. Only to see that you are, after all. What a way to start a relationship. He’s never going to trust me again. And that sucks Briana. Fuck! I’m going out. I need to think.”
“Cole please don’t go.” Briana pleaded but Cole was already out the door.
This was supposed to be the happiest day of her life. But instead of being happy as she had been earlier, she was bawling her eyes out. A painful ache swelled inside her and she wrapped her arms around herself. Technically speaking, the day before had been the happiest day of her life as it was already past midnight. And all because she had stopped taking her pills when she stopped seeing Cole two months ago. And of course the last thing on her mind when they made love in the restroom at the party two days earlier, was pills.
Now Cole was pissed off because he had apparently assured her dad that she wasn’t pregnant. She didn’t know what to do. It wasn’t like she was pregnant…or was she? Briana touched her flat tummy sobbing even harder. It was too early to know. How had she gotten herself into this mess? She had only remembered the pills when Cole had told her laughingly about her father’s suspicions. The last thing she wanted was for Cole to think she was trying to trap him with a pregnancy like Janice had pretended to. And thank God it had only been a pretence.
Briana headed downstairs to wait for Cole because she thought they needed to have a serious talk. An unpleasant thought teased at the edges of her consciousness, and she didn’t want to let it take hold, but little by little it grew. If Cole thought she had done what Janice had, she knew she would lose him and that scared her. It scared her a lot. The ache in her chest intensified. She needed to make him understand. She was no Janice.
She curled herself into a ball on the couch, her body shaking with great heaving sobs. Cole had still not returned and it was already past one. Briana cried herself to sleep.
“I’m so confused Damon.” Cole sighed. He was sitting in the plush living room in Damon’s mansion, nursing a glass of courvoisier.
“Well she could be but I suggest you sit tight man. Hopefully she’s not. I’m just not happy with you being here right now Cole. You should be with her.”
“I just needed to clear my head. I drove around for a while before coming here. I was so mad Damon. But more at myself. I should have asked. Or better still, restrained myself. But fuck, I can’t think straight around her.”
Damon laughed out loud at that last comment. “I know what you mean man. But put yourself in her shoes. She must be dying inside. She just got fucking engaged and the man who she loves, and who claims to love her, just run out on her at the slightest show of trouble. Smooth move, Asshole. Very smooth. Come on dude, you should be with her.”
“I know.” Cole groaned. “Shit! I fucked up.”
“You sure did.” Damon agreed softly.
“I gotta go.” Cole said standing up and draining his glass. He had taken in a lot of alcohol but was not even feeling drunk. Suddenly all he wanted to do was get back to Briana.
“And Cole,” Damon stopped him before he got to the door, “If you guys confirm she is indeed pregnant, talk to her mother first. She will know how to handle the dad.”
“Thanks man.” Cole said nodding. Then Damon gave him a big hug and saw him out.
When Cole got home, it was past 3 a.m. and his heart broke when he saw Briana curled up on the couch with dried tear marks on her face. Shit! He gently picked her up and headed for the stairs. But when he placed her in bed and tried to move she clung to him.
“I’m sorry.” She whispered shakily.
“Shhh! I am sorry for leaving Baby. Go to sleep.”
“I wasn’t trying to trap you I swear.” She had started sobbing again.
“Oh Honey, I never thought you were. And I don’t even care if you did. I would love nothing more than a little you running around here. It’s just that I feel like I’m letting your dad down. He’s never going to trust me again if he thinks I actually lied to him with a straight face. But it’s not even important now. I can face anything if I have you.”
Her eyes closed at the raw emotion in Cole’s voice. “God, when you left… I didn’t know if I’d lost you. I was so scared.” Briana whispered.
His grip tightened around her and he held her gaze. He could see her pain and fear and he cussed himself for putting her through this.
“I am so sorry Baby. I’ll never let you go,” he said vehemently.
“Don’t ever do that to me again.”
“It won’t happen again,” he said quietly. A promise.
“Good, because I won’t be here when you get back next time.” She added in a hard voice.
Cole stilled and swallowed. Briana looked dead serious.
“You would leave me?” He asked, barely above a whisper.
“Damn straight! Next time you decide to walk out on me like a wimp instead of staying like a man to talk out our problems, think about that.”
Cole’s mouth fell open in shock. Who the fuck was this woman? And what had she done with his Briana?
“Ouch! I guess I deserved that. Never again. I promise.” He said hoarsely.
“It had better not.” Briana answered still looking intense.
“But wimp?” Cole still looked shocked.
“Of course. Only a wimp would behave as you did. And I won’t tolerate that Cole. Just…remember that next time.” She added in a softer voice. He looked…scared.
“Yes Ma’am.” Cole now sounded bemused but his respect for Briana could clearly be seen in his eyes. He was insanely turned on by this firm Briana. Damn!
She pulled his head to hers and kissed him hard, her tongue invading his mouth, tasting and savoring him. Cole’s cock swelled in response to the heat in the kiss. Briana moved to his neck and licked up the length, biting down on the soft skin below his ear. Cole groaned. The sound of his pleasure slid over her like a caress.
“Love you,” she whispered. “Even when you’re being an ass.”
Cole shuddered and moaned, his fingers digging into her hips. “Christ Bri…go away with me”
“Huh? Wh…where?” Briana asked looking up at Cole. Her lips soft, wet and already swollen. Cole couldn’t resist leaning in to taste those lips again.
“Anywhere we can forget about all this and have fun. Venice, Bahamas, South Africa, Paris… your choice.” He replied dropping kisses all over her face.
“Cole your work…”
“Fuck my work. I’m a senior partner. And I have more leave days than I care to count. Besides, you are vacating this week. Let’s do it.”
“Alright.” Briana said laughing happily. “Paris.”
“Done! We leave on Wednesday. Deal?”
“Deal!” Briana was laughing so hard now.
“There’s nothing to forgive my love.”
“I love you.” Cole whispered.
Briana straddled him and claimed his lips in a kiss that conveyed just how much she loved him. His tongue tangled with hers, and she sucked on it, drinking in his warm cognac-drenched breath. The tormented groan that came uncontrollably from his throat brought a surge of answering wetness from her core.
Then Cole yanked Briana’s night dress up and over her head and tossed it aside. She was gloriously naked before him, wearing nothing but the gorgeous diamond anklet that showed off those beautiful legs. Cole had insisted she wore that when they were coming to bed. His breath caught in his throat when he saw the hard distended nipples on her beautiful milky breasts. They were simply perfect. His hands closed over her bare breasts, massaging her flesh, his thumb sweeping across her nipples.
“Christ, you’re so beautiful.” Cole gushed, leaning over to take one rosy nipple into his hot mouth, his mouth surrounding the tender peak and sucking softly. Briana moaned loudly, her hands immediately going up to hold his head to her, to keep that delicious sensation going. He toyed with her nipple, nipping at it with his teeth and soothing the mild pain with his hot mouth. He sucked the nipple into his mouth and swirled his tongue around it before nipping at it again.
“Oh my God.” Briana whimpered. She went from wet to drenched in microseconds. Whatever Cole was doing to that nipple felt so good. Her back arched as his hand captured the other nipple, rolling it between his thumb and forefinger. He groaned erotically deep in his throat which vibrated throughout Briana making her even more wet.
“I need you inside me Cole.” Briana gasped.
Cole swiftly rolled her unto her back, moved down her body and latched onto her swollen clit, sucking hungrily. She cried out in surprise. She could hardly bear the sudden rush of pleasure. His slid a finger into her wet pussy and stroked her, strummed her, wreaked exquisite havoc on her slick, sensitive flesh.
“Cole…” She screamed as a blinding climax swept through her. But Cole still kept sucking on her swollen and now highly sensitive clit. And before she even came down from the high, she felt pressure build inside her core again.
“God, you taste so good.” His roughened voice caused her to shiver with pleasure as he pulled back and stared down at her, his eyes narrowed, intense, his finger still moving inside her.
She spread her legs, moving against his hand, the anklet sparkling beautifully on her. The sensations overwhelmed her. The need to come was building again. He added a second finger and moved inside her slowly, his movements so deep, so forceful, she knew it wouldn’t take long. Then she felt him withdrawing his fingers.
“Oh God, please…” the plea burst forth from her before she could stop herself.
Then she felt the tip of his wet finger slid gossamer soft over the pucker of her anus and froze.
“Cole?” Trembling, Briana had never felt more vulnerable—or aroused.
“Relax Bri. And enjoy.” Cole said in a husky voice. Then he was latching right back onto her sensitive clit.
Her hips shifted restlessly as he continued to breach her tiny hole gently. The pressure of his fingertip became more insistent and Briana moaned when he slipped in to the first knuckle. The feeling was intense. He pushed fractionally deeper and felt Briana clench around his digit. When his finger started moving in and out more easily, Cole withdrew and added a second finger, sliding them in slow and easy. The pleasure completely shut her brain down. He reached up with his other hand and rolled her left nipple between his thumb and forefinger.
“Oh God…” Briana breathed and clutched the sheets in her fists. She quivered in delight, astonished by the myriad of sensations that were passing through her body, how good it felt. The fullness in her rear, Cole’s insistent sucking on her clit and the sensations of his fingers on her nipple was too much. She was lost.
She threw her head back with a passionate cry as an intense orgasm shook her frame. She sank her fingers into Cole’s hair, urging him closer, and loudly begging him not to stop. Sobbing his name, she kept coming. She’d lost count by the time he flipped her over and took her from behind, still fully clothed except for his hard cock which had been freed from his jeans. He pounded into her. His heavy sac smacked against her clit with every plunge.
“Cole!” she screamed, nails clawing at the comforter, begging for more of his touch. Cole had reduced her down to her primal animal element. And Briana silently asked for more by spreading her legs even wider.
In that position, he went so deep she could hardly breathe. He pounded into her hard and fast, showing no mercy. She could feel his entire length plunging into her and her thighs clenched in ecstasy as she started pulsing around him.
“Oohhh…” Briana felt shockwaves go through her body. She had never felt so much pleasure. Cole slammed inside of her with deep, brutal thrusts, unable to control himself any longer. He wanted to cum inside of her but knew he couldn’t. At least not inside her pussy.
He pulled out of her ever so suddenly, drawing a moan from her lips. Then he pushed two of his fingers between her pussy lips, getting them slick with her juices. Cole then gently pushed his lubricated fingers back inside Briana’s puckered hole. She moaned, her head dropping forward, bracing herself on her elbows. She fucked herself on those fingers. She was going out of her mind with sensations.
“Please Cole,” she begged, her body shaking beneath him with each thrust of his fingers. She didn’t even know what she was begging for. She just knew she needed more.
Cole reached into the bedside drawer for some lube. He was already wet from Briana’s juices but still wanted to ensure he was slick enough to avoid hurting her. He spread a generous amount onto his already lubricated cock, positioned it at her sensitive creased rosette and started applying pressure.
“Relax baby. And push out.” Came Cole’s husky voice. God he sounded so sexy. Briana did as instructed and felt the head of his dick pop inside her ring.
“Oh my God Cole.” Briana whimpered. The pain! She bit her lip to stop herself from crying out. Surely his penis had enlarged three times its normal size. She grunted as he pressed deeper. Oh, God… It wouldn’t work, wouldn’t fit. It burned.
Then Cole reached a hand beneath her body to find her clit, his fingers maddening as he circled it, creating havoc within her. She shouted as tingles tore through her belly with his first touch. She undulated against the finger circling her clit, forgetting about the pain in her arse. Cole pushed in further. She gasped and shifted her legs further apart to give him better access, the pressure inside her painful and thrilling at the same time.
