Erotic fiction

I"ve sầu finally finished unpacking. Propping a photograph on the window ledge by my bed, I glance round at my new flat. The plant that Nicki bought me as a moving in present sits next lớn an empty bottle of Cava và two ancient champagne flutes, remnants of our celebrations last night.

A bed, two stacks of books and a bulging clothes rail make this half of the flat look overcrowded already. A second h& sofa acts as a divide between the "bedroom" & the "kitchen", consisting of a coffee table, three deep purple floor cushions (borrowed from the café where I work) và a 1970s kitchenette that I can"t wait to repaint.

This is my new studio flat containing everything that I own in the world. To a stranger, it might look pathetic, but to lớn me it"s perfect.

After a relationship that should have ended a lot sooner, I finally broke up with my boyfriend of three years three months ago. I"ve been couch surfing ever since I moved out và it feels incredible to lớn finally have my own space. I"ve craved this opportunity for so long that I don"t mind forking out the extra rent for a studio flat. Now that I"ve sầu finally bagged a serious job, it"s time to lớn have sầu a place of my own as well.

The last year with my ex was unbearable. He"d always been jealous, but the further we grew apart, the more suffocating his possessiveness became. If I went out without hlặng I"d have to lớn "forget" my phone lớn avoid getting fifty arsey texts & having khổng lồ reassure hyên ổn that no, I hadn"t danced with any guys, và yes, it was a crap night without hyên ổn. It got so bad that I stopped wanting to see my closest friends – even a night with Nicki would result in a fight.

But the worst sacrifice I made was losing tương tác with Tom. Nicki"s my oldest frikết thúc, but Tom was my closest. I met hyên at my first Saturday job, waitressing at his Dad"s restaurant. He made me laugh on my very first shift và we were inseparable from that moment on, always slinking off on our breaks with bottles of half-finished wine and tasting each course, "just lớn make sure that it"s OK for the customers". Little did I know that my weekend job would inspire my future career. But even then I guessed that my partner in crime would be a friend for life.


Tom is one of those drop dead gorgeous guys that every girl wants to go out with. Predictably, he"s had a string of pretty, dull girlfriends for as long as I"ve known hlặng. There"s nothing between us, we"re just friends, but try telling my ex that. We had so many fights over Tom that I stopped seeing hlặng và allowed us khổng lồ drift apart completely.


Alright, there was one time when I wondered whether anything would happen between us. We"d been on holiday together lớn stay with his aunty in Spain. We had so much fun spending long, lazy days on the beach, sipping cold beers with countless bocadillos. It was one of the only times in eight years of friendship that neither of us were in a relationship. In fact, I was only there to stvà in for a girlfriover he"d broken up with days before.

The night before we went trang chính he dared me khổng lồ go skinny-dipping. We were sitting on the pier where one of the restaurants had placed a few tables up by the water"s edge. I knew he thought I"d never vày it và I was more than a little tipsy so I pulled my strapless dress off there and then & jumped straight in. The water was freezing and I rushed to lớn the surface, squealing.

Tom was bent over with laughter. Reaching down lớn pull me up out of the water, he gripped me in his tanned arms and a wave sầu of electricity ran between us. I hadn"t been wearing a bra and, as I clambered up to lớn hyên, I realised my tiny knickers were see-through from the water. Of course I felt self-conscious, but as his eyes flickered along my body toàn thân, lingering on my hardened nipples, I almost forgot my embarrassment. I wanted hyên ổn to lớn look at me, I felt like it was the first time that he"d really seen me. A wave of energy rushed through me, tingling between my thighs. If I hadn"t seen the waiter walking over just then, well, I don"t know for certain, but I felt sure he"d have sầu kissed me.

I pulled my dress on before I was seen và we sat bachồng down to finish our drinks, but the atmosphere had changed completely. Every other night we"d been howling with laughter và taking the piss out of each other. Suddenly we were quiet, the air between us heavy with expectancy. I remember how excited I felt, but also how frustrated I was that this was only happening now, the night before we went home.

On our way bachồng to his auntie"s apartment, he put his arm around me, a gesture that he"d repeated a hundred times, but this one it was different, more tentative sầu, his fingers gently circling my sun-kissed shoulder. My heart was pounding, my senses felt heightened. The smell of salt water in my hair was mingling with the subtle scent of his skin. The humid night air felt like it was closing in on me with sound of music and people & chatting in the restaurants that we passed. Everything was intensified and unreal. My mind was already in his auntie"s flat, me sat on the edge of her dining table with him stood kissing my nechồng, pushing my dress up khổng lồ my waist & slipping inside me. Tom, my best friend Tom, licking the salternative text water off my skin & biting down on my breasts.

But none of that was meant to lớn be. His aunty was waiting for us with a room full of friends & neighbours. In front of this crowd of people, we slipped straight back into our familiar roles, Jess & Tom, totally platonic friends.


I wasn"t able to lớn sleep that night though; it was infuriating knowing that he was lying there in the next room, tantalisingly close. I imagined hyên naked in bed, fighting with the blanket in the heat, as sleepless as me. I couldn"t stand it, the desire that he"d awakened in me had khổng lồ be released. I slipped my fingers between my legs và imagined Tom"s strong hands running up my thighs, his hot, hard lips & soft, wet tongue inside me. I bit down on my lip & clenched the sheets. With the thought of hlặng, hard & thichồng, pulsing inside of me, I reached a shuddering orgasm, before falling inkhổng lồ a frustrated sleep.

I kiss goodbye lớn Andreas và Peter and bolt the door of the cafe behind them as they walk out into the dark night. It"s been a long, busy day and they"ve sầu earned their tips, showing every customer the enthusiasm that we take pride in at Te Quiero. When the owner told me that he wanted khổng lồ take a step bachồng khổng lồ start a new venture, I wouldn"t stop at the pay rise he offered me, I reeled off my ideas for a renovation và insisted on being made a shareholder. It"s a tiny amount, but it makes a massive difference. I no longer feel as though I"m throwing my energy into lớn someone else"s project. I"m doing this for me & it"s given me the confidence khổng lồ turn my life around.


I walk through to the little baông chồng office, checking off the changes I"ve made with pride. The wall that I"ve sầu dedicated for local artists lớn exhibit their work on is constantly changing. A portrait of a proud, moustachioed man with friendly eyes reminds me of Tom"s dad. I log in lớn Facebook at the office computer, welcoming the mindless distraction that will help me to lớn switch off after a busy day. I cliông chồng onlớn Tom"s protệp tin page & have a fliông chồng through his pictures. This has become a habit lately, before I know it, I find I"ve sầu wasted half an hour looking at pictures of Tom on a beach in Đất nước xinh đẹp Thái Lan surrounded by bikinied girls, Tom on the baông chồng of a motorxe đạp straddling one of his mates, Tom"s familiar, magnetic grin, Tom at a food market bartering. Then, "Hi stranger" - a live sầu message from the man himself – pops up in the corner of my screen.

I blush guiltily; does he know that I"ve sầu been stalking him?

Me: Hi you, how"s Thái Lan / Laos / wherever the hell you are? Him: Back at Cassa Davidson. But they were all great thanks. Me: Oh my god! You"re home? I"ve forgotten my embarrassment; I"m so excited to be talking lớn my old frikết thúc again. Him: Certainly am. Want to meet up soon? Me: Yes, I"d love to lớn. It"s been too long. As soon as you"ve recovered from your jet lag you have sầu to come round. I"m living in Holloway now & working in a gorgeous little cafe, Te Quiero, you"ll love it! Him: I"ve sầu heard. I miss you Jess, it"s been over a year. Me: I know, I miss you too. I"m so sorry that I never came to your leaving – things were messy baông xã then. When can you visit? Wednesday? Him: Might have khổng lồ help out at the restaurant, I"m skint, but I"ll let you know. Me: Amazing, can"t wait! XX Him: Me neither. X

I walk to the bus stop with a spring in my step. I"ve missed Tom so much, the way he makes me laugh, his surprising shyness if I ever succeed in making hlặng blush, the midnight feasts that we"d make after a night out. I"ve been kicking myself for sacrificing our friendship, all for my ex"s ego. I can finally see how futile it was. Nothing I did or didn"t bởi vì would have sầu made hlặng have faith in me. And Tom is the only guy that I"ve sầu ever had a real, uncomplicated friendship with. Well, mostly uncomplicated.

I"ve got the next day off & spkết thúc the morning pottering around in Camden Market. In my mind, I plan what meal I"ll piông chồng out for Tom when he comes lớn the café, deciding that halloungươi with chorizo, apricot và a green bean salad will be the perfect combination. I try to see Te Quiero through his eyes. How will he see me now I"m finally realising my ambition lớn run my own restaurant?

After finding a 1930s mirror, a cashmere throw & a box of wine glasses for the flat, I cart my new purchases baông xã on the bus. When I get lớn the door of my building there"s a tall, tanned man holding a massive sầu bunch of sunflowers at my door. It"s Tom, grinning at me widely.

"House warming present," he says as I carelessly drop my bags at my feet & wrap my arms around hyên ổn.

"Oh my god, thank you. How did you know where I lived? You look so well? These are so beautiful," I cry, ecstatic & flustered and utterly surprised.

"I went to your café and you weren"t there, so I called Nicki & she gave sầu me your address."

By this point we"re climbing the stairs to my flat. I"m juggling the flowers và all of my bags. Tom looks awkward, as though he doesn"t know what khổng lồ vì with his hands.

I show hlặng inlớn my studio & feel suddenly self-conscious.

"I"ve sầu only just moved in, there"s a lot of work to lớn vì on it yet," I say, apologetically.

"It"s great, Jess," he says. He"s not looking at the room at all but staring at me, really staring.

"You"re gorgeous." I say. Not "You look well." Or "How are you?" All I can come up with is the truth. He"s tanned, toned & bigger than I rethành viên hyên ổn being, he seems khổng lồ fill the whole flat, towering above me.

He doesn"t say anything but cups my chin in his h&, stroking my cheek with his thumb. I freeze. I don"t know how lớn react, I don"t want lớn breeze over this gesture & spoil the moment. I want lớn press myself up against his hard, warm body. This is not the Tom that I remember. It"s disorientating that he can seem at once so familiar & so utterly new & exciting.

"I"ve sầu missed you," he says.

I can feel how much he means it và I rush towards hyên for a hug, but as I go lớn press my face inkhổng lồ his chest he lifts it upwards gently và kisses me full on the mouth.


In that moment I"m undone. My desire floods khổng lồ the surface and my hands run up to lớn his face, kissing hyên fast và hard. He meets each of my kisses, pulling me closer, his hands up under my T-shirt, bringing every inch of skin khổng lồ life with his touch. We pull each other"s tops off, hungrily, as he pushes me down lớn the floor, undressing và kissing me all at once. When I"m right down to lớn my pants, opening my legs to lớn hyên, he stops, kneeling above sầu me, his chest rippling above the waistbvà of his jeans.

"I"ve sầu waited so long for this moment, let"s not rush it," he says, lifting my foot up to his mouth and kissing each of my toes. He moves up along the inside of my legs, licking và kissing và stroking my skin with his cheek. He is everything that I"ve sầu ever fantasised about và more. As he kisses my stomach, he slides his hand inside of me & he must feel how aroused I am, because he groans.

"You"re beautiful, Jess," he whispers in my ear, "so beautiful."

And I feel it. More beautiful than I"ve sầu ever felt in my life. My hips are raised off the floor, tense & expectant, willing hlặng lớn go deeper & deeper inside of me. He answers each of my groans but then teases me, withdrawing his fingers with a stroke và entering again until I"m ready to lớn explode.

I reach inlớn his jeans and tug at hyên, but he keeps whispering, "Not yet Jess, not yet." He waits until I come, waves of pleasure surging through me, & with his hvà still inside of me he turns me over onto lớn all fours, pulling me up onlớn his lap so that I"m kneeling with my baông xã lớn hyên. I expect hyên to take his hvà away but he leaves it in there, slowly stroking me, reaching further và further with his fingertips whilst his other hvà kneads my breast, kissing my back the whole time. Another orgasm shudders through me.

I"m still clenching và releasing in pleasure when he takes his h& away. I glance baông chồng over my shoulder & see that he"s pulled a condom out of his pocket. My mind reels, how did he know lớn bring a condom? Did he plan for this khổng lồ happen? I expect myself to lớn feel outraged but instead I"m even more turned on.

He slips inside of me, controlling my movements with his hands gripping my waist. It"s totally overwhelming, but at the same time, I never want it to stop. I swivel round và wrap my legs around his bachồng, gripping onlớn the back of his neông chồng & looking straight inkhổng lồ his beautiful blue eyes. "Oh God," he groans và speeds up, pushing me bachồng onkhổng lồ my elbows so that he can lean forwards, & kiss my breasts.


When I see that he"s about to orgasm I feel so aroused, so full of desire, that I climax again, clutching hyên closer as we shiver against each other.

We lie back on the carpet and Tom rests his head on my stomach, slowly stroking my legs. There"s so much to say but we"re both too exhausted khổng lồ speak and I wouldn"t know where khổng lồ begin.

After fifteen minutes of just lying there, he props his head up on one elbow and stares at me, his eyes twinkling with a smile.

"I can"t believe sầu this is happening," I laugh.

"I know, it"s crazy. I thought about you so much when I was away, và when I heard that you"d broken up with Sam…"


But while we"ve been lying there in silence, my mind has been running away with me. I"m not ready to lớn dive sầu inlớn another relationship yet; I don"t know what Tom"s plan is or even where he"s going khổng lồ live sầu. I"ve just got my best frikết thúc baông chồng và I don"t want to loose hlặng again. But the idea of slipping straight baông chồng into being just mates, of him getting another girlfrikết thúc, is enough to make me feel sick.

"Tom, what"s going khổng lồ happen? I"ve missed you so much, I don"t want to lớn spoil our friendship, but I can"t chiến bại you again. And I need this time, this place, lớn myself for a bit. But you can"t just waltz in here & vì chưng this và expect nothing lớn change. I don"t know what this means lớn you but everything is going lớn change."

"Jess, calm down," he says softly, placing a finger on my lips. "I underst&. I don"t know what I"m doing either. I"ve sầu only just got baông chồng from travelling. All that I know is that I"ve wanted for this to happen for a long time."

"Since Spain?" I ask, tentatively.

"Maybe even before that. And there"s a whole list of things that I want lớn vị with you before we start questioning this," he says, running his fingertips over my lips.

The knot of anxiety that"s built up in my stomach ebbs away immediately. I reach across và stroke his muscular arm.

"What else is on this danh mục then?" I ask shyly.


He stands up and pulls me lớn my feet. Cupping my bottom in his hands he leans in for a long, slow kiss. I feel hlặng harden against me và in one swift motion he"s pulled me up off the floor. Instinctively, I hook my legs around him. In between kisses and bites on my nechồng he starts khổng lồ stream off his fantasies about us.

"I want lớn have sầu you in the shower, on that coffee table, on every surface in your café, I want to kiss each inch of your toàn thân, I want to lớn taste you, outside, in my oto, on that beach in Spain, I want to lớn watch you touch yourself."

I groan as he drops me onkhổng lồ the bed.

Propping myself up on one elbow, I slip my h& in between my legs, not taking my eyes off hyên ổn for a second.

"Let"s start there then," I say, feeling more confident and sexual than I"ve sầu ever felt in my life before, "và when we"ve sầu crossed everything off your list…"

"Don"t worry about that," he says, "it"s a very long danh sách."
