I sat in the kitchen thinking about what I did last night. I don't even know why I did it. I'm lying, I do know why I did it. I did it to prove a point, but still. I let out the most obnoxious sigh and threw my forehead on the counter.

Knock knock!

I sat there looking in the direction of the door for a minute.

•in my head•
Who could this possibly be?

It was Blake. Shit.

What are you doing here?" I asked.

"Can we talk?" he asked.

"Sure. Come in."

He walked toward the kitchen as I slowly trailed behind him. He sat down at the counter.

"So what's up?"

"You know why I'm here," he said with a smirk.

•in my head•
You slick son of a bitch!

"No, I don't," I said holding back a smile.

I knew exactly why he was here, I was just bein' ignorant.

"So you're just gonna pretend last night didn't happen?"

"Well I was trying to," I said leaning on the counter.

"You kissed me and you're gonna pretend like it was nothing?"

"I kissed you to prove a point and besides, you kissed back so what's your excuse?"

"I-I uhh I-"

"Admit it Blake Griffin, you like me and that's why you kissed back!"

"Okay I like you, but you obviously like me too!" he said back.

"Yeah so?"

He looked at me like he was shocked. I don't think he was expecting me to just say it so bluntly.

"You re-"

"Yes I like you!" I said quickly.

"Well don't you think since our feelings for each other are mutual, we should do something about it?" he asked.

"I go back home in a couple weeks and I don't want to be in a long distance relationship," I said.

"We could make it work," he said putting his hand over mine.

I walked around the counter past Blake, "I don't know, I-"

He grabbed me by my belt loop and pulled me back. I stumbled onto his lap. I turned so I was facing him with my legs wrapped around his waist.

"I thought I told you not to get involved with a girl like me," I said.

"And I thought I told you I like a challenge," he smiled.

"But what if-"

He kissed me. It was so intense I lost my train of thought. I pulled away when it started getting hot.

"Sooo?" he said with a smug look on his face.

"Blake, I just can't. If I'm gonna be in a relationship with you, I want to be able to see you everyday in person. Like I don't wanna have to wait til I'm back in LA to see you. I don't wanna have to rely on Skype or phone calls just to talk to you. I just-"

"I understand," he said cutting me off. I think he could tell I was getting upset.

"So what are we gonna do?" I asked wrapping my arms around his neck.

He put his forehead against mine, "we could be friends with benefits."

"You're not supposed to be friends with benefits with people you care about," I said onto his lips.

"It'll be fine. We'll figure it out," he said right before our lips touched.

We pulled away and I put my head on his shoulder. I smiled little, but my smile faded. Here I am, sitting in Blake's lap with him knowing how I feel about him and it's killing me inside that I can't be with him. I felt my eyes water but I blinked it away.

"So what do you wanna do today?" he asked.

I got off his lap, grabbed his hand and walked in the living room.

"I just wanna spend time with you," I said sitting on the couch.

"You know for a bad ass like yourself, you are being unbelievably adorable right now," he said sitting next to me.

I smiled in the cutest way possible. I moved closer to him and curled up in a ball. He put his arm around me and I put my head on his chest. After a couple minutes, I felt my eyelids getting heavy and I started drifting off.


I looked down at Briana and saw that she was sleeping. She's so cute. I turned the tv off and carried her into her room. I put her on the bed and started to walk out, but I felt her grab my hand.

"Stay with me," she said sleepily.

I took off my shoes and decided to lay with her. I put my arm around her waist and fell asleep.


I woke up in my bed with Blake's arms around me. I smiled and got up slowly so I wouldn't wake him. I kissed his cheek then walked in the kitchen.

I was supposed to be making dinner, but I didn't know what to make. It was Thursday, so I could either do pasta or baked pork chops. I texted Monique to see which one he wanted.

me: pasta or baked pork chops?

nique nique 😘👯💕: pork chops

I got everything I needed to make dinner and started. I put the pork chops in the oven, and then started the the rice and green beans.

I turned around to see Blake walking out of my room.

"I didn't know you could cook," he said sitting down.

"There's a lot you don't know about me," I winked, "you wanna stay for dinner?"


"Serious question, if you can't cook, how do you survive on your own," I asked.

He chuckled a little, "I honestly don't know."

"You need to find someone that can cook for you man," I said checking on everything.

"If you were my girlfriend, you could cook for me," he said.

I walked over to him and stood in between his legs.

"Oh really?"

"Yes really," he said.


"You should really reconsider this whole thing," he said kissing me after every word causing me to smile.

"You know I can't," I said.

I turned to walk to the stove but I felt his hand on my ass. I turned around quickly and he was smiling.

"Watch yourself," I said.

I turned off the stove and oven.

"One day Briana, you will be mine."

I turned around and smiled.

One day.
