Kaycee awoke slowly, her head pounding in protest as she tried to force one eye open only to close it as the small glint of sunlight made her sensitive eyes water.
“Ugh!” she groaned groggily lifting one weak hand to brush some hair out of her face only to freeze at the realisation that something was wrong.
It took a moment for her to realise that if she had one hand holding her aching head and one trapped beneath her body then how was there an arm draped across her holding her breast? And now that she thought about it what was that heavy weight across her leg?
Holding her breath Kaycee forced her eyes open ignoring the pain that caused and turned her head slowly to see a sleeping man huddled against her, a naked man if she wasn’t mistaken.
“Oh my god!” she whispered wondering what the hell had happened last night. She racked her brain furiously even as her skull felt like it was being hammered from the inside.
She remembered going out on the strip with her friends and then Hannah had suggested they go in to the casino. Even though it wasn’t her sort of place she remembered that she had been determined to enjoy herself and when they had been approached by a group of men she hadn’t ducked out like she normally would have. She remembered there being a cowboy in the group who had introduced himself as…. as…
“Dammit!” she muttered furiously as it took a few moments for her brain to kick in. What was his bloody name? Greg? Jack?
“Jake!” she said a bit too loudly and she grimaced as she waited for the naked man to stir but he stayed silent and she breathed a small sigh of relief as she glanced at him once more to determine that he was the cowboy only to frown as she realised he didn’t look much like him.
The cowboy, Jake she reminded herself, had been quite nerdy looking which was what had endeared her to him. He reminded her of herself and she had felt sorry for him thinking maybe he had as hard a time as her talking to girls.
They had been talking and drinking and gambling and there had been more drinking and then… Nothing! It was blank. She had no idea how she had gotten from the casino and no idea how she had ended up here.
“Shit!” she muttered to herself as she tried to figure out a way to leave the bed and this room, that was clearly not hers, without waking naked boy.
Okay, so she just needed to move his arm a little bit and slide her leg that way, and then she would be free.
Unless he responded by pulling her further against him!
“Shit!” she hissed. Never one for patience Kaycee decided to give up on this tactic and instead pulled her elbow back sharply in to the hard planes of his stomach which had him sitting up abruptly and releasing her.
“Ugh!” he groaned and Kaycee rolled her eyes as she slipped from the bed, relieved to discover that she was at least wearing her underwear, and retrieved her clothes noticing as she did so that there were two cowboy boots discarded by the bed and a stetson abandoned near the door.
A sudden image of the two of them kissing and her removing his hat so she could run her fingers through his hair had Kaycee blushing and she bolted for the bathroom before he could say a word.
Pulling the dress on as quickly as she could Kaycee tried unsuccessfully to get rid of the blush that was slowly stealing across her face. She had never been the type of girl to have one night stands, if truth be told she had never actually slept with anyone. And the thought that she had thrown her virginity away on a drunken fling that she couldn’t even remember made her want to be swallowed by the floor.
She waited a few moments to see if the ground would comply and when it failed to swallow her whole Kaycee took a deep breath and readied herself for the inevitable.
Opening the bathroom door she walked out almost crashing in to him in the process. She narrowed her eyes suspiciously wondering if he had been waiting for her to come out or if he just happened to be stood there when she had decided to come out.
“We should talk!” he said running a hand through his hair as she glanced around searching for her bag.
