It was over two hours later before Melanie woke again. Brian was propped up next to her watching tv.
"Well hello," he said as she rubbed her eyes and stretched.
"Hi." She turned on her side to face him. "What time is it?"
"Almost 9:00. How's your head?"
"Better but it still hurts. I'm sorry."
"For sleeping the day away. I'm sure you had more in mind than sleeping."
"I won't lie, I was hoping we'd get a little more use out of this bed. But you can't help it if you don't feel good. Don't worry about it. Are you hungry?"
"I'm starving," she said. "Did you eat?"
"Nope. We can order room service again if you want. Or have something delivered."
"Whatever will be fastest."
He grabbed the room service menu from the nightstand and handed it to her.
"Can you get me the Cobb salad? Without the blue cheese."
"You want a salad?"
"What's wrong with a salad?"
"Nothing but...I don't know. Just seems like an odd choice at this hour."
"Well what are you getting?"
"A sandwich and fries," he said.
"Ok. Then just get me the same thing as you."
"I'll get you the salad if that's what you really want."
"Nope. Fries sound good. I'll eat a salad tomorrow."
She handed him the menu and gave him a quick kiss before getting out of bed and heading to the bathroom. He watched intently as her naked body walked across the room. He waited until she had closed the bathroom door before picking up the hotel room phone.
"It'll be here in about twenty minutes," he said when she came back into the room.
"Whatever will we do while we wait?" she asked as she straddled him.
His hands slinked slowly up her back as she put her hands on the sides of his face and kissed him deeply. She quickly slid down his body, coming to rest between his legs. He watched, unknowingly holding his breath, as she took hold of his cock.
She looked up at him as she stroked it a few times, and kept her eyes locked on his while she licked him. From the bottom of the shaft to the top, then over the head, before taking all of him in her mouth.
Moans and sharp intakes of breath came from him as he watched her. It was such a turn on, having her look directly at him as she worked him over. She caressed his balls as she repeatedly swallowed him, stopping to swirl her tongue over the head intermittently.
She knew he was close when his head fell back and his eyes closed. She felt his body tense momentarily before he released into her mouth. As usual, she swallowed all of him. When he was finished she kissed a trail up his body, stopping with a quick kiss on his lips.
She rolled over off of him and onto the other side of the bed but he grabbed her arm and pulled her back to him.
"You're so good at that," he uttered.
"Glad you think so. And glad I could repay you for taking care of me."
The next day Sal came to pick them up when they checked out. The only clothes they had with them were their Halloween costumes and they didn't want to ride the subway back to Brooklyn dressed that way.
Sal left as soon as he dropped them off at Brian's jeep.
"Thank you for a great weekend," she said, brushing his hair out of his face.
"Thank YOU." He kissed her tenderly then embraced her completely. "I love you. I'll text you later."
"I look forward to it."
The following month, for Thanksgiving, Melanie went home to Ohio to visit her parents. She hadn't seen them since the previous Christmas, and her sisters were also going to be flying in.
She stayed for four days, and during that time she had three severe headaches. Her mother became really worried when the last one hit, causing Melanie to spend the majority of the day in bed. Her mother tried to talk her into going to the hospital to get checked out but Melanie assured her it would pass and she would be fine.
Since she was single and didn't have kids she volunteered to work on Christmas Day. She worked on Christmas Eve until noon, then spent the rest of the day with Brian. They exchanged a few gifts, watched movies, ate, drank and made love.
The following week Melanie worked on New Years Eve day until 5:00 and was off on New Years Day. She and Brian had been invited to a party but after talking it over they decided they wanted to spend the evening alone. Having spent Christmas Eve at her apartment Brian invited her to his house. She arrived around 7:00, tired and ready to relax.
"Hi," he said as he opened the door. "You look beautiful."
As soon as he had closed the door he grabbed her arm and spun her around. He pulled her to him and kissed her before wrapping his arms tightly around her.
"Everything ok?" she asked.
"Everything is great. Especially now that you're here. What can I get you to drink?"
"How about some Jameson."
"Going right for the hard stuff eh?"
"It's been a long day."
"Well let me put some music on and you can tell me all about it," he said, coming back into the room with two glasses and a bottle of the whiskey.
They talked and drank for nearly an hour before deciding to order dinner.
"I want GoGo's," she said. "I need some greasy, fattening comfort food."
"I was hoping you would say that. I'll get the menu."
While they waited for the food to be delivered Brian put on an Elvis album, at Melanie's request. Half way through the fifth song Brian jumped up and started singing to her, complete with Elvis mannerisms.
"Don't stop thinking of me
Don't make me feel this way
Come on over here and love me
You know what I want you to say
Don't be cruel to who a heart that's true
Why should we be apart?
I really love you baby, cross my heart."
He was interrupted by the doorbell but continued as he made his way to front door. Melanie laughed as he sang to the delivery guy, who also laughed. She got up and went over to get the food while he paid for it.
"If only he knew who had been serenading him," she said when Brian came into the kitchen.
"Maybe he did," he said, swatting her playfully on the ass.
They talked and laughed as they ate and afterwards they played video games for a while. They continued to drink and by the time midnight rolled around they were both completely drunk.
"Happy New Year," she said, straddling his lap, having just lost again.
Before he could reply she was kissing him. She wrapped her arms around his neck as his snaked around her waist. As soon as she pulled away from him she stood and took his hand, leading him upstairs.
