I awoke to the smell of Carter. My face was buried in his chest. I inhaled his scent taking in a deep breath as I intoxicated my senses with his sweet aroma. I slightly pulled away from him and looked up at him. He was awake and was smiling down at me. Gosh that was awkward. I didn't mean to do that while he was awake. I could feel my face turning a deep shade of red. I turned my head and looked down. He laughed.
"It's okay Lizzie. I know I smell good and it's just hard to resist" He said chuckling.
"Whatever Carter" I mumbled into his chest. I felt his chest rumble from his laughter. He began to run his fingers through my hair.
"When do your mom and sister come back?" I asked.
"Tomorrow" He stated.
"Are you sure she's is okay with me staying here?" I questioned.
"Yea it's fine Liz" He stated.
"Liz?" I questioned. He smiled.
"You like?" He questioned.
"Not really," I replied honestly.
"Well I like it" He muttered. I rolled my eyes. He kissed my cheek. "Come on let's get up" he told me.
"NO..... Can't we just stay in bed all day?" I asked him.
"Of course not" He muttered. "I have to eat" He muttered.
"All you do is eat Carter" I muttered.
"Are you calling me fat?" He asked.
"What, no!" I said immediately feeling bad.
"I'm just kidding Liz. Calm down girl!" he told me sounding like he was talking to his pet horse or dog. I rolled out of his arms and got out of the bed.
"Where you going?" he asked as he came up and wrapped his arms around me from behind.
"I was going to take a shower" I said turning around in his arms.
"You should let me join" he whispered into my ear. I turned my head to look at him to see if he was serious.
"Is that why you wanted me to stay with you? So you can take showers with me?" I asked.
"Maybe" He replied. I chuckled.
"I don't think so Carter" I replied.
"Maybe next time then" He muttered.
"Maybe" I whispered back. He laughed. I went and grabbed some sweats and a tank top along with panties and a bra and headed to the bathroom,
I took a quick shower and went back into Carter's room. He wasn't in there. I went downstairs and of course he was in the kitchen and whatever he was making smelled pretty well.
"What you cooking?" I asked him. He glanced my way.
"Panini's" He stated.
"How come you know how to cook so great?" I asked him.
"I'm just good like that," He muttered. Most girls love a guy that can cook especially when she can't" He stated.
"Is that your way of saying that I can't cook Carter?" I said as I hopped on the counter next to where he was.
"Pretty much" He replied as he took a sandwich off the grill and placed it on a plate. He made another one and placed it inside the grill.
"I can cook" I retorted.
"Bullshit you can't even make pancakes." He stated.
"Yea I can," I replied.
"Really" I replied. He laughed.
"Well maybe you should show me sometime." He said as he maneuvered his body so that he was standing in front of me between my legs. He grabbed my legs and wrapped them around his waist pulling me closer to him. I gasped. He moved my hair away from my neck. His lips traveled the length of my neck and I shivered involuntarily. I turned my head wanting my lips against his. I maneuvered my lips so that they were against his. He placed his hands on my neck and kissed me back.
He pulled away leaving me breathless while staring into my eyes. He untangled my legs breaking his gaze and moved away from me. He pulled the sandwich out of the grill and placed it on a plate. He lifted me off the counter and stood me on the floor.
"Come on let's eat" He said as he grabbed the plate and sat it on the table. I went and sat down across from him. He winked at me gaining a laugh from me. He smiled.
