“When willyou turn eighteen?” he whispers into my mouth.
“Sunday,” Iwhisper back.
“Two daysfrom now?” he asks, still kissing me.
“Mmmm-hmmm,”I mumble back, thinking if this is kissing I should’ve started doing it sooner.
He pullsaway, a pained look on his face. I know he’s going to leave. Right now. He’sgoing to yell at me for deceiving him and walk right out my sister’s door.
“Oh, God, Aria.”
“I’m sosorry. I really am. I won’t tell anyone if you don’t. Please don’t tell anyoneI brought you up here. My father would be pissed and he’ll drag me home to theboring suburbs, and my exciting pretend adult life in the city will be over!”
“You’remad,” I say. “I know you’re mad. And… and I’m bad. I know that. This was bad.I’m bad. And I probably deserve to go home.”
“No,” hesays. “That’s not what I’m thinking about right now.”
“You’renot?” I say, genuinely surprised because if I were him, I’d be thinking thatyeah, this girl has no clue what she’s doing and has no business being leftalone in her sister’s apartment in the city for four weeks.
But thankGod, I don’t say any of that out loud. Instead, I say, “Then what are youthinking about?”
He looks atme hungrily. Like he’s the Big Bad Wolf and I’m Little Red. Like he wants toeat me up in one gulp.
And I lookback at him like maybe I want him to do that.
“Two days?”he asks again.
“Yes.” Inod. “I’m meeting my parents for tea at the Corinthian and then we’re going tosee that musical everyone’s talking about.”
“God helpme,” he says.
“What? Why?I said I was sorry. Please don’t tell. Please,” I beg.
“I’m notgonna tell, Aria.”
“You’renot?” I brighten.
“Not if youdon’t,” he says. And that hungry look is back. Only it’s like he’s starving andneeds to eat something now. Anything,even if it’s me.
And to tellthe truth, I feel the same way. My body is all tingly and my lips—I reach up totouch them. They feel all weird. His touch lingering. The minty taste of hismouth still fresh inside mine.
“What areyou thinking about?” I ask.
He reachesfor me, then steps back without touching. I want him to touch me, I realize. Ididn’t intend for that to happen when I brought him up here, but I do.
But I seethat he’s about to leave, to walk out and never come back, so I reach for him.
He shakeshis head and backs away. “I shouldn’t have kissed you. I just can’t…”
I wait forhim to continue, but he doesn’t. So I say, “You can’t what?”
“I can’thelp myself. I have to go before I do something stupid.”
“No!” Isay, grabbing onto the sleeve of his coat. “Just… wait.”
He looks atme over his shoulder and says, “Aria. If I stayhere another second I’m going to lift up your little skirt, pull down your pinkpanties, and stick my fingers inside you until you come.”
My mouthdrops open.
“And if youopen your mouth like that again, I’ll stick my cock inside it.”
I shut mymouth.
“I’msorry,” he says, shaking his head. “That was so fucking inappropriate.”
Which ittotally was. But it was also totally hot.
And then hedoes. He leaves. He opens the door, walks through it in a rush, and closes itbehind him.
And when Iopen it back up to call him back, he’s already out of sight. Nothing butfootsteps on the stairs.
