This is a new story I’m working on Enjoy…
”Vladimir” Isis shouted as loud as her lung provided her
“Get your butt outside this instant!” once finished with the yelling she turned her attention to her guest.
It’s been years since she last seen her. Yet they had always stayed in contact with one another over the phone whenever they had the chance to reach the other.
Her guest looked backed at Isis unsure if it was the right decision. She wasn’t expecting him to be here, feeling uncertain she began to retreat but Isis stopped her in the process.
Sensing her uneasiness “Don’t worry, everything will turn out fine I promised” Isis had assured her guest.
The doors to the front of the house screeched as it was forced open. The two women turn their gaze at the two men that had exited but stopped on the porch to talk to one another. Isis sensing her friends’ uneasiness once again turns her gaze to her direction. She had seen her eyes glistening at the sight of him. She could tell that her friend still felt something for him. “Are you alright?” she had asked but all she got in returned was a subtle nod.
“Hey I just remember I forgotten my WD- 40 in your trunk two days ago” said the one in red
“WD-40?” the other questioned wondering what he was talking about
“Yes oil for the door hinge, so it would stop from giving such an annoying screech. I’ve been meaning to fix that but haven’t gotten around to it.”
“I guess I never noticed it” he sighed
Seen his buddy’s lack of awareness and even motivation the one in red patted his best friend on the shoulder “Don’t look so gloomy Vlad, what’s with you lately you seem zone out” Vlad shrugged “Just go for the dam oil already and stop asking questions, I seriously don’t want to answer it at this moment Marcelo”
“Just try to cheer up will you. I figured you would be since you’re getting married and all”
“Just go for your WD-40” Vlad said handing over his car keys
But before he started to move Marcelo turned his attention to the bottom of the stair case. He seen his beautiful girlfriend Isis standing there looking at them both. His eyes then traveled to the guest and stood there somewhat shock “Isn’t that……?” he couldn’t recall her name it has been such a long time. Vladimir hasn’t looked to see, he had other things in his mind. Being so distracted he didn’t even hear Marcelo the first time until he started slightly shoving him in the arm “Isn’t that R…?” it was at the tip of his tongue but before the name made it out of his lips Vladimir had beat him to it.
“Riley” her name came out in a whisper, something changed in him. His heart started to beat faster than usual. He had thought this feeling was gone for good but it wasn’t.
She still made him feel this way after such a long time.
They had both stared at each other with sadness in their eyes
Both men made their way to the women at the bottom of the staircase.
“Hi” he heard her faint voice, he noticed by the way she had said it that she wasn’t sure if being here was the best decision she had made. But why was she here? Why after such a long time did she just decide to make it here? Right when he was getting married in a few weeks’ time.
“Hello Riley” it didn’t matter though he was glad to see her even if she wanted nothing to do with him.
“Ooh I hope….” Isis had started to say but was interrupted
“Darling please don’t try to intervene, was this you’re doing Isis?”
“What! No of course not. I just told her over the phone that he was getting married in a few weeks that’s it. I’m shock to see her here as well as you guys are” He didn’t notice a hint of a lie, he knew her all too well and could tell when she at least tries to lie.
Isis isn’t the type of person that can lie, however she can’t seem to keep a secret in either.
Isis then turned her attention back to Marcelo “Let’s go inside and give them some time alone”
He nodded before excusing themselves and letting them know they will be inside.
Vladimir nodded to Marcelo and Isis, by the time he turn his attention back to Riley she was already making a retreat. Not wanting to see her go he ran after her.
“I’m sorry I should go” she had said doubt lingered in her eyes
“What! Please don’t leave” she looked down and he followed her gaze “I’m sorry” he said removing his hold on her “Please stay” he pleaded.
Vladimir wasn’t much of a beggar but he found himself insisting and pleading, not knowing what else to say to try to convince her to stay he was surprise that she finally said “Ok, I’ll stay”
He couldn’t contain his smile “Great! Let’s go inside” He wanted to ask her so many questions but retained himself. So he then leaded her into the house.
After giving her a tour of the house Vladimir had to excused himself. Marcelo had called him saying he couldn’t find his WD-40.
“There you are. We are all going for a dip in the pool. Please join us Riley”
“I didn’t bring a swimsuit with me. I’m not sure if I should”
“Please Riley it’s been such a long time since we seen each other and hangout. If you’re worried about Vlad just pretend he isn’t there unless you want him to be. I’m not pressuring you or anything but please join us”
“As for something to wear, in the guest room upstairs there should be something for you to wear.”
Not wanting to argue with her best-friend Riley agreed to join them.
“That reminds me, will you be staying here?”
“No, I just arrived today and went straight to Palms Resorts before coming to visit you.”
“Great so you won’t mind if you stay here with us. I meant there are plenty of rooms and you could take one of the guest rooms. It’s actually the same room you’re going into for the swim suit. Please say you will stay, we can go in the morning to pick the rest of your stuff at the resort.”
“I just can’t say no to that, I’ve wanted to spend some time with you. There’s so much that you don’t know that I didn’t want to tell you over the phone.”
“So it’s settled you’re staying here, and you can tell me later on all the things you never told me. Ok”
“Ok, I’ll meet you all outback”
The uneasy feeling in her chest had returned as she made her way down the stairs.
Vladimir had just exited his room and stop in his tracks as he caught the sight of Riley in nothing but a swim suit. He couldn’t stop himself.
He had long to touch her, to feel her in his arms. He didn’t hear her when she said ‘excuse me’. He began to move closer to her, close enough that her perfume had envelope him. It was such an enticing smell.
He wrapped his arms around her waist, Riley was taken by surprise.
“Vlad please don’t” she pleaded she has seen the longing in his eyes. She had hopped he wouldn’t try anything. His hold on her waist was firmed, he held her so close she couldn’t budge from his hold.
Everything felt so smooth even her hands as she cupped his faced with both her palms. Her soft warm breast against his chest was turning him on. He was wondering if she was going to kiss him as much as he long to kiss her soft luscious lips. “Please let me go” he didn’t want to let go but he did soften his hold on her.
Riley took the opportunity to make a run for it. This came to total vain.
He had caught up to her.
“Riley, I know things got out of hand but I couldn’t help it. I still have strong feelings for you, I thought they were long gone but just seen you after all this time” he had begun to say “I’m sorry, but just like when I told back then. I really did mean it.”
“Please stop, it doesn’t matter. The circumstances led us to different paths”
“No it had nothing to do with that and you know it. I was just so freaking jealous and seen you with someone else.”
“We weren’t dating Vladimir and I as well held a grudge on you when the other girls flirted with you and you didn’t turn them down. Then on graduation rumors spread that you slept with half the girls from school. But the past doesn’t change the present what’s done is done. ” She sigh before continuing “Before you get your hopes up just remember that you are spoken for”
“I never slept with any of the girls.” He interjected clearly reassuring her, of course he knew half the school wanted a piece of him but he just answered some of their random questions they had for him. He didn’t think being helpful would do any harm; it wasn’t like he was flirting with them. Yet he was dead wrong and Riley had all along had the wrong impression of him.
“What I told you that day in my room, I meant every word of it’
“Vladimir” she reached her arm to his cheek “I… I loved you back then as well but…” he didn’t like it when there was always a ‘but’ involved in her sentence. “You are getting married and I…” she hesitated she didn’t want to hurt him but it had to be said for the sake of the both. “I’m seeing someone”
He felt his heart ache, not expecting her to say this to him. He wanted, no he wished he could go back in time and make things right again but it was too late. Both were with their respected partners and here he was trying to get the one that got away back into his life.
Yet he knew that he didn’t love his fiancée. He wanted so many times to break things off but he couldn’t. His career was in the line; her father had him wrapped around his finger. If he were to leave her all doors would be close for him. Tough he wanted so much to fight for Riley.
He didn’t know what to do or how to go about ending it.
“I’m sorry” he heard her say before she started to walk away
Seen her walk away brought the aching heart ache back, he didn’t want it to hurt so much. It reminded him of the day he found out she left. He came to a decision and this time he will try to win her back no matter the circumstances but first. ‘I have to end it’ he said in a low voice that only he could hear.
Tears had started to fall as soon as she exited the back doors. She couldn’t face him for much longer, he would have seen her tears and she didn’t want that.
Not knowing who was hurting the most she knew that they couldn’t pursue each other.
She wiped her tears away before she proceeded to join the rest.
“Are you alright?” asked a concerned Isis noticing her friend acting a bit strange
Rileys vision had caught the sight of Vladimir as he was decending from the porch steps
“Your friend looks like she was crying her eyes out” a female that had been taking a small nap awoke from her slumber
“and you are?” Riley question wondering who the hell was this woman interupting a conversation
“McMillian…. Janice McMillian” Janice smiled as she stod and greated Riley “and who might you be?”
“non of your business!” Riley reproached
“Feisty I see,Oh well I don’t care anyway” she flung her wrist in a snobby way before she walked away and towards the guys who decided to play a game of catch.
They watched her walk towards the guys and flung her arms around Vladimirs shoulders before she planted her kiss. She felt her self go jealous as she witness the kissing, but it soon dawn on Riley.
‘I can’t believe my brother he brought this snobby rich girl to introduce to the family. I hate her, she is so concieded’ she had remember Isis mention this to her a few years back ‘Her name is Janice McMillian what a total bitch what was my freaking brother thinking’
“Come lets go play a game of Gnobe” Isis said interupting her thoughts. As they made their way over she noticed that Janice is really pretty, she wondered if Vladimir was crazy. Who wouldn’t want a trophy wife by his side, comparing Janice to her, Riley felt a bit insecure.
She was short and adverage but Janice, she is a model.
“Your with us Riley” Once again Isis broke her concentration but this time she was glad she did it. She didn’t want to think of herself any less. As she made her way over she seen him just staring at her.
Not once did he looked away, They were waiting for him to start this game but it was as if he had frozen. Isis literally had to walk over to him and smack him in the back of the head.
Janice didn’t like the effect that short girl had on Vladimir. She wondered now what her name was maybe that would of provided a clue.
They played three rounds of the game and Isis team won. Two – One.
“Oh Sweetheart I want a pice of that” he had spank her behind
She swung her hips seductively as she made her way up the steps. He was glad he put up a big fence around the yard and the trees prevented the neighboors from seeing her as she swung her sexy hips. That was only for his eyes and his alone.
“Baby the faster you help me clean the faster we hit the sack. She winked at him seductively, she didn’t have to say it twice he quickly took everything inside as fast as he could before he carried her all the way to their room.
Riley was about to head inside but stopped as she observed Janice approach her fiance.
She didn’t like what she was seeing, she didn’t like what she was feeling. She shouldn’t feel jealous or sad. Yet as she stood, her mind was telling her walk away but her body hadn’t register it.
Janice was throwing herself at him.
Until she couldn’t take it anymore she ran as fast as she could up the steps and into the house.
Just before she left running he caught a glimps of Riley with a tear running down her cheek.
“Janice you should head home”
“What but I want to spend the night with you”
“I’m sorry but as you can see my sister strictly said that while she had guest no girls over”
“then lets go to your place”
“It’s a long drive and seriously I just want to sleep it’s been a long day” he sigh hoping she wouldn’t argue with him
“Ok fine I’ll call you tomorrow then” she pecked him goodnight before grabbing her belogings and leaving in her car.
Riley was pacing the room, walking back and forth for several minutes. Scolding herself all the while.
She cussed herself when she herd the door to her room open then shut closed. She had forgoten to lock it on the way in. She was positive it was him and sure enough she was proven right when he began to speak up.
“I’m sorry you had to witness that” he walked up behind her and before he got any closer she spunned around and faced him.
He was almost too close that she took a few steps back.
“Riley I want you to answer me one single question, will you do that for me?” She nodded in agreement “Do you still have feelings for me?”
“I…I…” she couldn’t say it, she didn’t want to give him an answer.
“Riley please just tell me or I’m going to asume that your silence is a yes” she still didn’t say anything “Riley….” He walked a few steps closer. Rileys heart was beating so rapidly she thought she was going to have a heart attack for a split second.
“Riley” his warm breath caressed her ear sending a tingling sensation down her body as he said her name.
“Please sweetheart say it” he pleaded as he drew his lips a few centimeters away from hers.
‘Sweetheart’ for some reason she loved the feeling she gottten from hearing him say that word. She had to answer, that’s all he wanted a straight forward reply.
“Yes” she was surprised with herself, she couldn’t believe she just said that. “This is so wrong Vladimir, we shouldn’t even be in the same room together”
“All I know is that if our feelings are mutual nothing else matters” he smiled scopping her up in his arms.
It felt right…
He carried her towards the bed laying her down delicately. They kissed each other with hunger in their eyes.
“What is it?” he questioned as he felt her pull slightly away
She just stared at him unbelieving her eyes “Am I dreaming?” He let out a small chuckle “No my love, I’m as real as it gets” he smiled down at her
Her eyes were still showing concern “Don’t worry nothing is going to happen, we are just going to makeout” the concerned left her eyes and they proceeded with their makeout session.
It was getting really heated, his manhood was getting excited and he was positive she was as much or even more turned on than him. If they didn’t cool it down soon they would most likely end up making love. He didn’t think this was the best place for this to happen.
He was pulling away slowly and Riley had noticed. “Why are you stopping?” she questioned concern this time for a different reason.
“If we continue, I’m going to make love to you”
“Oh” was all she said as she blushed
“Vladimir” she said his name as they stood cuddling
“What is it?” he noticed a hint of concern and doubt
“What are we doing? I meant this…us? What’s going to happen? I don’t think you should jeopardize everything for me and Laurence” she was referring to his job, and her partner.
“Laurence huh…” he repeated the name with a hint of jealousy “We will think of something as for my job I don’t care. All I care for now is you” he assured her
Kissing her once more “I should go but please, no matter what happens. Remember that I love you and only you” he said before pecking her goodnight.
He went to his old room. Wondering how he was going to end it with Janice. He also got a bit curious and wondered how this Laurence fellow look like and if Riley would even consider breaking his heart. Knowing how Riley is that is if she hasn’t change; he just hoped she finds the courage for her to end it with this Laurence guy. He knew if he thought of it any longer he wouldn’t sleep so instead he thought of Riley and what had just happen in just one day of her arrival. He fell asleep thinking of her and the memories they would soon share together.
