I stepped down the stairs from my porch as Josh walked towards me. I could only faintly see his face in the darkness but I could tell he was smiling. I smiled back nervously as the distance between us closed. We stopped just inches from each other and stood in silence for only a moment before he threw his arms around me, wrapping me in a warm embrace. "Thanks for letting me come see you." He spoke and I could feel his breath on my neck, leaving a trail of goosebumps all the way down my spine. "I'm happy you wanted to see me so soon..." I choked out. He pulled away from me and gazed into my eyes before asking "should we go inside?" "Oh, duh..of course..uhm, sorry. Yeah, come on in." I waved my hand towards my apartment and josh followed closely behind me. When we stepped inside, I motioned towards the sofa. "Feel free to have a seat. You want a beer or something?" "I'll just have some water. I think I've had enough to drink tonight. I've been trying to sober up a bit since I left the bar and came here. I want to remember tonight." I looked at him and noticed his flirtatious smirk. Butterflies ransacked my insides and I had to steady myself against my bookshelf. I smiled at him and walked into the kitchen to grab his water and have a mini nervous breakdown. I breathed deeply and splashed some water on my face. I dried off with the dishtowel that hung from the handle of my refrigerator and made my way back to the livingroom. I handed josh his water and sat down on the opposite end of the couch. Josh looked up at me with a furrowed brow. "You look nervous..." I wiped my palms on my shorts and let my body relax. I let go of the air I was holding hostage in my lungs and smiled. "Sorry, sometimes I forget to breath. It's this damn anxiety." I watched his face change to something more serious. "Hey, believe me. I get it." He scooted closer to me. "Come here." He said as he patted the cushion beside him. I slid over next to him and he twirled his finger in a circle. "Turn around." He whispered. I turned my back to him and tensed up as I felt his cold hands touch my shoulders. "Relax..." he whispered. I could feel his breath hit my back and the hairs stood up on my neck. He began massaging my neck and shoulders with the perfect amount of pressure. I felt my body begin to relax starting at my neck and slowly releasing tension down my spine. I focused on matching my breathing with his. "How does that feel? Any better?" His voice, soft and sweet, surrounded me. I could feel my inner thighs tense up and the temperature rising between them. My breath began to quicken, losing Josh's rhythm. "I can feel your muscles relaxing. That's good." He whispered as I felt his body shift closer to mine. He stopped massaging and moved his hands to his lap as I turned to face him. "Feel better?" He asked. I nodded my head because I couldn't bring myself to speak. We sat in silence listening to music. Every so often I would catch him looking at me out of the corner of my eye. I had a permanent smile on my face. I still couldnt believe this was happening. I could feel sexual tension overriding my senses but I was too shy to make a move. I felt something brush against my outer thigh and looked down slyly to see Josh's hand placed next to me with his pinky ever so slightly caressing my skin. I shifted my thigh a little closer... barely enough to notice, but enough for me to get a little more contact. He looked up at me and spoke. "You're really beautiful, Ana." He shifted closer to me and slid his hand into the small of my back. He began to trace his fingers along my lower back slowly inching his way towards the hem of my shirt until he was underneath it. Feeling his skin against mine sent jolts of electricity throughout my body. "I think you're beautiful." I said, as a small laugh escaped my lips. He smiled at me and pulled me closer to him until our legs were touching. He brought his free hand up to my face and traced his thumb along my jawline. I got lost in his eyes and didnt notice that his face was inching closer until we were only centimeters apart. I closed my eyes just as I felt his lips meet mine. His kisses were soft and sweet as he ran his fingers through my hair. My body was tingling with excitement as I placed my hand on his cheek, softly stroking it with my thumb. His kisses deepened and I felt his mouth part and his tongue trace my lips slowly. I met his tongue with mine and they danced together for only a moment before his lips closed and slowly broke away from mine. I opened my eyes and studied his face. His bottom lip softly pinched between his teeth. He took my hand and held it softly in his, staring deeply into my eyes. "I could kiss you all night..." he spoke softly as he pulled me into his arms. We laid down on the couch with him holding me from behind as I turned on netflix. "Wh...what should we watch....?" I asked. "Doesnt matter to me." He replied before planting a kiss on the side of my head. I put on Angry Beavers and sat the remote on the coffee table. I shifted my body further into his as he squeezed his arms a little tighter around my waist. His breath tickled my neck, but in the best way as I quickly drifted off to sleep....
