(This is UNEDITIED and all mistakes are mine. O.o)
I wake up arching my back, to find Abigail resting her
head on my chest, a small hand under her cheek. Her scrunched up face is
beautiful and blonde hair tickles my bare chest. I take a few of the strands
between my fingers and rub them together, testing their color and silky
texture. We’ve stayed in the past few days avoiding the rain, the outside world
all together, ordering takeout and enjoying each other’s company and now I want
to take her to see my boats and maybe invest a little more of her heart in
As I’m enjoying the quite space of time, her phone begins
ringing with a low tone. It’s not enough to wake Abby, but enough that I give
in to temptation and pick it up from the nightstand, slipping the charging cord
out so I can hold it up. Reading it, it says incoming call from first name
‘Ex-Lucas the Loser’ and last name ‘unfortunate co-worker.’ I’m glad Abby has a
sense of humor. I let it go to voicemail before I scan her call log. Several
calls from Lucas show up over the last few days, none picked up or returned. I
also notice that her dad has called just as many if not more times, again none
answered or returned. My LA girl is avoiding the reality just as much as I am.
A part of me wonders how long we can keep this going. I promise myself to make
her answer the next call that comes in so we can figure out what we’re doing,
as much as I hate that. I put the phone down and go back to watching her sleep.
“Mmmph…” Abby grumbles a mostly unintelligible something.
“Wake up beach bum.” I pinch her hip softly.
“That’s Hollywood to you.” Her eyes open still filled
with a sleepy smirk and she stretches up to meet me. Without words she’s
crawling up my body, breasts slipping from her strappy tank tops and panties
slipping off her hips taking my lips hungrily. Our passions equal and yet it’s
another reason this girl is so well matched to me. God I want her to stay in
Seattle. I can’t bare for her to go back to LA. If I could keep our little
cocoon a bit longer I know I can convince her to make the decision on her own. Our
tongues play, rolling, sucking and slipping deeper together. I nip her bottom
lip to get her attention and move my hand to her free breast squeezing just
enough to get a groaning whimper from her.
“Today is boat day.” I peck her mouth again and hold her
still to keep her from launching back into my lap, despite how much my dick
would love to make contact with her sweet tight center.
“Tomorrow, tomorrow can be boat day.” Abby is pouting and
while I see plenty of advantages to giving in, I decide my cooler head has to
prevail before we become mummified in my loft.
“Toss a couple of days’ worth of clothes in one of my
duffle bags and let’s hit the marina.” I tap her rear and she leans up on her
you just spank me, Roman Winters?” Abby is coy and I know what she’s doing as
she drags a fingertip down my chest. I roll us over so I am on top. “Pack wench or you’ll be the most
unfashionable sailor on board.” I hold her still while she wiggles and tries
her best, yeah her best to get me in a better position.
but I need caffeine.”
plenty awake. We can grab some on the way.” I let go of her and run to the shower
as she gives chase only to bang on the door mere fractions of a second before I
can lock it. “Pack, Abigail.”
You’ll be sorry, Roman!” I hear Abby yelling from behind the door and I laugh.
She smacks the door hard and I imagine her hand must be smarting from the force
of it. It seems like Hollywood has a little violent streak in her when she gets
denied. Good. To. Know.
Roman Winters thinks he can deny me and I’ll come
running. He is kind of right. It’s been pure bliss these past few days cozy and
holed up in the loft. Well… with the exception of my phone going crazy. I’m not
back at work and don’t know if I plan to go back to LA at all at this point.
I’m sure I could take the bar exam and maybe move up here or close or I don’t
know. Feelings of guilt sweep through me and I’m conflicted all over again.
Roman is still in the shower. He’s probably getting himself off so I can’t
weasel my woman way into making him stay. Evil man, he should have learned
these past few days that I would do it for him…
I go back to the bed and crawl in, the sheets are still
warm from our tumble earlier. I reach over the bed, hugging a pillow and grab
my phone from the nightstand. The screen is flashing so I slide the bar across
and see a selfie of Roman and I with theSpace Needle in the background. We haven’t had a chance to go there yet
and I’m excited to have that as another first with this man. I check my
messages. There are several from Lucas and more from my dad. Only one from Leah
and while I’m sure it’s not an apology I delete them all. My plan is to deal
with them after we do whatever it is that Roman has planned on the boat.
“Let’s take my truck to the marina.” Roman tells me as he
picks up my bag and his and takes them down to his truck. We haven’t stepped
inside since we came to Seattle. Anywhere we went we walked or took public
transportation. It made me think of my car still sitting lonesome in Maddie’s
driveway. I left her my keys in case she had to move it. “Whatcha thinking
about, Hollywood?” Roman slips a lock of my hair behind me ear and I sigh
because his touch is that good.
“Platypus.” I tell him thinking of my car and then I
instantly regret the words out of my mouth.
“Plat-a-what?” He asks as he puts the truck into gear and
drives out of the garage under his loft.
“Oh it’s nothing. Forget I said it.” I feel my face heat
up a thousand degrees. Ugh. How will I explain this one?
“Nuh uh. You can tell me now or I’ll pull this truck over
and tickle you until you fess up. I know your soft spots, woman.” He has the
gall to smirk at me and I wonder what I did karmically to deserve this now of
all things. He flexes his fingers threateningly and I know he’ll pull the car
over. “Abigail…” I know it’s my final warning.
“Okay. Okay!” Roman pulls the truck over.
waiting…” I swear this man is impossible.
um my name for my car.” I cringe and wait for the laugh. Lucas looked at me
like I was stupid for naming my car when I had told him all excited about it. I
do feel stupid.
“Platypus, huh?” Roman nods his head testing the name
“Platinum Platypus, actually. You know, cause she’s
silver.” I feel super self-conscious but Roman isn’t scrutinizing me. He’s just
sitting there thinking. “It’s pretty shameless, I know.” I duck my head and
hope to god my tan skin is hiding my embarrassment.
“Nah, it’s perfect actually. Makes me think I should ask
if you would name my boat though. Not the one we’re sailing on this week, but
another one I built that I planned on keeping.”
“Really?” I squeak.
“Yeah, she’s still in production so she’s not seaworthy
yet, but we can take a look and you can think of something good for her.”
“Oh Roman…” I don’t know what it is but the fact that he
trusts me to name one of his boats is pretty cool and feels pretty serious.
We pull up to the marina and I see several things all at
once. Several large ships decorated with an anchor logo and the initials R.W.
sitting pretty right in the middle, beautiful shiny new hauls sitting in docks.
Crews hosing them down and keeping them pristine while others seem to be doing
things people in boat yards and marinas do. Hey, I’m from LA we don’t know jack
about boats except these are big luxury ones.
“Oh, my god, Roman, your boats!” I say pressing my nose
to the window clearly impressed. I look back at Roman who is smiling shyly now.
“I engineer the designs. I got a very nice backer and
business partner who is letting me buy back shares in my company from the loan
he gave me to start up.”
“They’re beautiful.” I whisper looking back out the
window. I knew Roman loved boats but this, this explains so much more about him
and why he lives in Seattle but can take so much time off to go home to Gold
“Come on, Hollywood. Don’t tell me you’re afraid of a
little water?” Roman gets out of the truck and slowly walks around to my side
opening the door and unbuckling my seatbelt to help me out.
“Well… you know what they say about a man who makes big
boats.” I mutter and he grabs my hand excitedly half dragging and propelling me
up the dock to the boat we’ll be taking out.
“Yup and if you’re lucky, I’ll even let you steer my big
wheel.” Roman chuckles and we both know we're totally big cheeseballs. “Come on I
want to show you around the deck and cabin before we take off.” I follow Roman
as he puts our bags down inside and then takes me back on desk toward the front
of the boat. We can see the marina, the little safe harbor we are moored in and
the city of Seattle. It’s a gorgeous view and I take out my phone to take a
picture of us. I frown noticing a text from Lucas. The top half of the message
is telling me I need to call my dad at the office. It pisses me off so I
slide the screen open and put the camera mode on to take the pic.
let’s have Jeb take it for us.” Roman slips the phone from my hand and one of
the crew members takes it from him. “Smile Hollywood, you make my boat look
good.” Roman nuzzles the top of my head kissing me and I lean into his embrace.
God I really do love this man.
Yesterday we spent the day getting acquainted on my boat.
I showed Abby around the deck, crew quarters and master quarters where we would
be staying for the next couple days. We sailed out into the Pacific and enjoyed
the sunshine. The chef on board created a delicious meal of fresh salmon and
prawns and we drank far too much wine to be healthy. This morning I’m feeling
pretty hung-over in a good way and my heart feels heavy and at peace listening
to Abby sleep and the ocean gently rock us. Abby
is snuggled deep under the covers and from my angle all I can see is a mop of
blonde hair against the starkness of my pillows and sheets. One arm is over her
face and reaches out for the far side of the bed. A gentle snore pushes past
her slightly parted lips still puffy from our kisses. The ever slight rocking
motion of the boat is like a lullaby keeping us suspended in time. She is
relaxed and quiet, a change for Ms. Bossypants and a chance for me to admire
Abigail…” I nudge her gently, inching my arm around her middle squeezing.
She mumbles something unintelligibly as ususal and I sneak a kiss on her cheek.
up, Abigail. You know your arm hanging off the bed is boogieman bait…” I try to
pull her closer to my side of the bed and I hear her breathing change, waking
uh.” She utters.
yeah, so you better get over here so I can protect you.”
weird.” She says not opening her eyes stretching a bit and I take that as my
Abby knows by now I’m going to retaliate something fierce.
no, just, um… I didn’t say that. Mean that.” I roll over on top of her and push
her arms up. “Hiya.” She says eyes glowing and smiling.
right back, counselor.” I whisper before I start to slowly tickle her from her
prone position. I know she’s fighting back a giggle so I increase my pokes and
rubs in the spots that affect her most.
is non-consensual tickling!” Loudly reprimanding me I double my efforts.
it and it all goes away.” I’m egging her on enjoying her wiggling body underneath
offense is punishable in a court of law!”
I’m a first time offender, just say it.”
it!” I kiss her neck and she’s pushing her hips up to move me but I’m much
stronger just laying over her.
Roman Winters has the biggest boat in the bay.” Ah there’s my girl.Um wait... just the bay?
the bay?” I admit I’m hurt. After all she hasn’t seen all of my boats just the
ones at the marina.
just the fucking bay you torturer!” Abby lifts her hips up again and rolls them
into my own. My dick is aching to be inside her again as we roll over again,
this time I’m on the bottom.
quite a potty mouth you have there, Hollywood.”
punish me, Sailor.” Abby is taunting me. I let my head fall back on the pillow
and take a deep breath. She’s crawled her way over on top of me, kissing and
licking. I don’t want to have to do this but if I don’t I fear we’ll be
cocooned forever with this elephant in the room.
Abby…” She gently bites my nipple and even though that doesn’t really do it for
me something about my girl’s mouth anywhere on my body is exciting. “Abigail,
please, one sec.” God, she’ll make me beg as much as I make her beg. I take
hold of her arms and hold her steady. Her eyes are heavy lidded with passion
and something else I can’t describe.
is it?” She bites her bottom lip and chews it nervously. I set her astride me
holding her hips in place so she can’t wiggle out of the conversation.
elephant, Abby.” I say not very articulate. I watch her eyes widen with surprise.
Roman, I’m not calling your co--.” I put my hand over her beautiful dirty
Abby. I mean… what we’re not talking about.” I keep my hand over her mouth
until she licks my palm. “Bad, Hollywood.” I tell her shaking my head no and
already distracted. God I love this woman.
know. The phone calls.” I let Abby go and she slides off me to sit next to me,
crossing her legs.
Abby, what do you want to do?” I watch her grab a long lock of hair twisting it
over. I take it from her hand to pull it gently and get her attention back on
me. Nothing this delicate and beautiful should be twisted and knotted.
I’m not really sure. Everything, I have is there, in LA, but…”
We stay silent a moment looking into each other’s eyes. Just then her phone
rings lowly from somewhere inside the bedroom. We both look in the direction of
the sound. “Answer it, Abby. Please.”
I don’t know if I want to.”
it’s not a question of wanting to, it’s a matter of doing it and then we’ll
figure things out.”
A single tear slips down Abby’s cheek and I brush it away with my finger. Her
tears are like precious diamonds, made from pressure and pains in her life not
yet fixed. I desperately want to be the one to fix them for no girl this gentle
and loving should ever have to cry.
it. I’m not going anywhere.” Abby takes a deep breath and gets up from the bed
reaching into her bag she picks up the call on the third ring.
Dad, what’s going on?” I get up from the bed and head out to the deck to give
her some privacy because it seems like the right thing to do. I can’t hear her
conversation from out here so I just stand at the railing taking in the beauty
of the ocean as my boat skips along the waves. I close my eyes and breathe deep
asking for peace. Just as I’m about to take a walk to the upper deck I hear a
cry from inside the suite.
sweetheart, what is it?” Abby is on the floor curled into a fetal position
crying loudly and I can’t make any words out. Her phone is laying on the carpet
the call no longer ongoing. Is it her dad? The douche canoe Lucas? I don’t know
how to help her if I don’t know what’s going on.
it’s my sister. Leah has cancer and it’s just like my mom all over again.” The
words set me back as I fall into auto pilot and pick Abby up in my arms. I sit
with her on the bed and just rock her carefully. I’m afraid I’ll make it worse
no matter what I say. I sure as hell can’t make it better.
let’s get you home, sweetheart.” I whisper in her ear and squeeze my eyes shut.
I’m afraid I’m going to lose Abby... because now I have to get her home
and I don’t know if she even wants me with her…
