DEATH WISH (Episode 10)

 

****

The loud creaking sound of an opening door jolted her awake…
She yawned and squinted her eyes, searching for her glasses. Finding it on the floor, she picked it up, wiped the lenses and put it on…
Her body ached from sleeping on the couch in one position for too long… Getting up, her eyes darted to the wall clock…

It was four am….. She sighed, running her fingers through her curls. She must have slept while waiting up for Adrian.
Wait! Adrian!
She turned just in time to see him walking towards his grandmother’s room with a towel around his neck.
“Adrian!” She called out, rushing to him. He didn’t stop. He ignored her…
“Adrian hear me out… Wait!” She pleaded to block his way.

“Out of my way. I need to take a shower” he scowled at her, moving past her but she blocked him again…
“Please hear me out…I was rude and…” She began but he cut her off
“Listen I’ve got no time for this… I need to take a shower and rest before the sun comes up… And I have less than two hours to do that” he made to pass but she blocked him again, placing both hands on his chest… He groaned.

“I’m sorry Adrian… You have been nothing but good to me and me…”
“Out of my way Maya,” he cut her off
“No… Not until you forgive me” she smiled.
Way to go Maya! Where the hell did such courage sprout from?
As if realizing same, Adrian cocked his head to one side, amused at her sudden courage. He didn’t realize when the anger he was feeling began to dissolve as a small smile tugged at the corner of his lips…

“Say what now?”
“I said I’m not getting out of your way till you forgive me”
He chuckled, placing both hands on the door, hereby trapping her in between his body and the door…
“Oh yeah?”
She gulped, nodding… His eyes boring into hers. Her blood beginning to boil at their sudden closeness… She could feel his breath on her neck as he stared down at her…

“You don’t force someone to forgive you miss Robinson…you were very rude to me”
“I….i know. but I already apologized. I… I’m not forcing you”
She gulped again, her eyes darting to his lips…
Damn!! Those lips were attractive.
Stupid Maya. Concentrate and stop staring at his lips.
“Well, they are such sexy lips…”
“Thank you” she heard him say and that’s when her head shot up to stare at him. He was grinning sheepishly…

“Huh?”
“I said thank you for appreciating the fact that my lips are sexy”
She gasped… Did she say it aloud?
She frowned “what? No.. I..”
“I heard you loud and clear and well, I think yours are not too bad..” he whispered, one hand left the door and settled on her jaw… He let his thumb caress her lips and she gasped at the contact.
Indeed, they were soft. He wondered what it would feel like to kiss her…

You should stop Adrian. One minute you’re angry, the next your thinking of kissing her.. His mind pricked him.
He stared at her, she was staring back at him and she was doing nothing to stop him…

****

Maya felt her heart pounding rapidly against her chest, threatening to burst out as he bent his head downwards…
Dear Lord, was he going to kiss her? Holy Jesus, he was going to kiss her!!!
Stop him, Maya, stop him!!
Her subconsciousness yelled but she just couldn’t…
In fact, she found herself anticipating it, wanting it. She found herself eager to be kissed by him…
Instinctively, she shut her eyes as soon as she felt warm, subtle, soft lips on hers…
She gasped at the thousands of emotions running through her system…

*****

As soon as she gasped, Adrian took that opportunity and eased her mouth wider, sending in his tongue to taste her better…
He groaned…
Damn!! She tasted like sweet flavored mint…
He took her lower lips in and sucked on them, slowly savoring the taste, imprinting her scent in his brain…

She didn’t respond but she didn’t pull back either…
From her reaction, he knew it… He had been with numerous women and he didn’t need a soothsayer to tell him that she had never been kissed before…
He groaned, feeling guilty for having taken her first kiss without permission. He made to pull away when she suddenly wrapped her tiny arms around his neck and kissed him back sucking on his upper lip just like he did to her…

He groaned again, wrapping his arms around her waist and pulling her to him…
It was obvious she was trying to learn but damn!!! She was doing too good for a beginner…

*****

Maya pressed her breast to his chest, unable to get enough. She let her right hand caress his neck upwards till she reached his head and run her fingers through his hair…..
Why did she suddenly feel like…
Oh, God!!
She pressed her body to his and kissed him much harder, sending her tongue to meet his just like he had done…

*****

Another groan escaped Adrian’s mouth as he felt her press her body to his…..
Why was he suddenly feeling strange?
Like… Like…
Uhhhh.
His heart was threatening to burst out from too much pounding…
He didn’t know what she was doing to him… But if there was anything he knew, it was the fact that he had never felt this way with all the women he had ever been with and he liked that feeling.
Damn!! He liked it…

He broke away from their kiss and trailed her jawline with soft kisses… He kissed her neck softly, planting light, soft kisses on her collarbone…
Damn! She smelt good.. so good
Maya threw her head back against the door, granting him more success…
Adrian expertly licked his way upwards towards her right ear….he kissed her earlobe and sucked it on it…

She moaned, tightening her grip on him… He smiled, she was so sensitive and delicate, fragile and too sweet…
His lips left her earlobe and he captured her lips again, kissing her.
She responded immediately, doing much better now…
Wanting more, he walked her backward till her back hit the door…
Their kiss was filled with intense passion and desire.
He squeezed her slender waist, wanting more and more, wanting to touch her, every part of her…

****

Maya was suddenly jolted back to reality when she felt her back pressed against the door.
Oh, holy Jesus!! That was the door to grandma Cecilia’s room and they were kissing right behind it.
What if… What if, she opened the door and found her grandson kissing the living daylights out of their guest…..
It took every strength in her to pull away from their kiss…
She stared at him, dazed, breathing heavily just like he was…
Without a word, she turned on her heels and ran inside the other room, her heart pounding as she had just ran a marathon race…

*****

Adrian stared at her retreating back, unable to fathom what had just happened.
But Christ!!! By far, that was the sweetest, passion-filled, an intense kissing session he had ever had…
“What are you doing to me, Maya… Why do you affect me so?” He muttered, rubbing his chest absentmindedly…

*****

Later that morning, around six thirty am, Adrian, now fully dressed for work, joined his grandma at the dining table… He gave a sigh of relief when he saw that Maya wasn’t around…
Thank God!… He wouldn’t be able to face her now…
He grabbed a glass of juice to drink and almost dropped it when he sighted Maya emerging from the kitchen with a plate of several slices of bread, sausages and scrambled egg…..

“Good morning” she greeted setting the plate down avoiding his gaze… Her cheeks flushed in embarrassment…
She sat down and arranged the slices of bread, placing one on top of the other with the sausages in between to make a sandwich… She added a few leaves and handed one to grandma Cecilia…
“Ummm… Sandwich?” She asked stretching the plate towards him. He nodded and picked one…..

*****

Grandma Cecilia smiled knowingly as she watched them avoid each other gaze.
She couldn’t help the little chuckle that escaped her mouth… She immediately covered it with a cough…
At dawn when she was woken up by the noise of the door, she had decided to check if Adrian was finally back but then she stopped herself when she heard them arguing… Well, it had seemed like an argument to her until the room suddenly grew silent for a few minutes. And then she heard Maya’s moan…..
She smiled…
She knew something had transpired between them and if she gives them a little push, she would soon be having her great grandkids…
She cleared her throat.

“Hmmm, Adrian… Remember that every year I went to Johannesburg to see my children?” She began
Adrian stared at her…
Of course, he knew nothing about it… He had taken possession of that body just a few months ago…
He nodded
“Well I will be going this year too but I will be staying for a week”
“When are you going grandma?”
“Tonight”
Adrian suddenly choked on his food…
“What?” He managed
“I know its impromptu but I have to go…”
“Do you really need to go.. Today? Now?”

“Yes. I trust that you will take care of our guest here” she said trying to hide her smile…
Hopefully, by the time she gets back, they will probably be engaged or perhaps in the process…
She grinned.
She had waited so long for her grandson to bring home a decent girl and now when she was in her house, seated before her, she was going to do everything to get them together… Maya was perfect. Just perfect…

*****

Maya glanced at Adrian… As if feeling her gaze, he turned to stare at her too…
They stared at each other as if conveying a message through their eyes.
A week…
They were going to be left alone, for a week…
Maya swallowed a lump, her cheeks turning red as she recalled their kiss, her first kiss…
