Need You Now Ch. 02byclaudzilla©
It was Halloween...Kristy's favorite holiday. She looked forward to this night every year. She had a lot of visitors to her house, from itty bitty pea pods to a guy dressed like Jimmie Johnson. He had two tire tracks over the front of him and a bruised and bloodied face. He scored kudos and an extra handful of candy for his costume! Actually, there were lots of kids dressed like NASCAR drivers this year. Seeing them made her miss Tony even more than she normally did.
July seemed like such a long time ago. Kristy hated how their lives kept them apart. If Tony was in the area for a night or two, so was Jason. If Jason was out of town, so was Tony. Today was a perfect example. Jason was in Florida -- and Tony was in Alabama. She and Tony texted often, but it wasn't the same as being with each other. One good thing did come of everything that had happened -- Tony had dumped Brittani the day after he and Kristy had gotten together. But that didn't change anything. Kristy was still with Jason and she still missed Tony...a lot.
Kristy grabbed a bowl of candy corn off the coffee table. She flopped down on the couch, grabbing the remote. Jason was gone - again. She wondered why she was even fucking married some days. She pulled up an interview with Tony she had DVR'd a few weeks back. He was unshaven and in a good mood. Her heart picked up a few beats seeing his beautiful smile. The worst thing? She knew how that scruff felt against her skin, and how the furriness of his chest felt against hers...oh my God, just thinking of him was making her crazy! She quickly turned off the television, taking her cell phone out of her pocket to text him. It was better than nothing.
K: Hey kiddo! I'm bored! You?
T: Tired! How r u?
K: Alone again. The usual. :**(
T: Aww...wanna do something?
K: Are you local?
T: I am!
K: No shit! Where and when?
T: Jack's Tavern @ 10?
K: Will do. What happened to tired?
T: Not anymore! ;o) c u soon!
Kristy jumped to her feet. He was in town? Shit! She had to find something to wear! Running upstairs to her bedroom, she dug through her closet, finding her favorite skinny jeans. She tugged them on, shoving her feet into comfy black ballet flats and her white button down shirt. She quickly spritzed her hair to repoof the curls, dusted some bronzer across her cheeks, threw on some brown eyeliner and flew back down the stairs. She looked at the clock. It was only nine? She had gotten ready in record time, and now had forty-five minutes to fret.
After mindlessly straightening up her house, it was finally time to leave. She drove carefully through her neighborhood, watching for any kids still out trick or treating. There was minimal traffic at that hour, so she made good time.
Turning into the lot, she looked around, found Tony's truck and pulled in next to it. She checked herself in the mirror one last time, squelching any last bit of nerves and guilt she was feeling. Her phone vibrated in her pocket. Expecting it to be Tony, her heart skipped a beat. Much to her disappointment it was Jason. Fuck.
J: Whatcha doin'?
K: Having a drink with one of my buddies from work.
J: Cool! Who?
K: Just someone from my office, you've never met them.
J: What time will you be home? 1 or so?
K: Probably. Gotta go in, they're waiting for me.
J: OK. Have fun, be careful. TTYL
She closed her phone, leaning her head against the back of her seat. Fuck. Fuck, fuck, fuck. She was only half lying, right? She was with a buddy from work. Kristy sighed deeply, once again pushing the guilt aside.
She got out of her car and walked inside. The bar itself wasn't that busy for a Sunday night, but the back room was hopping. Kristy assumed it was a football game due to the yelling and number of f-bombs she was hearing. She continued walking down a long hallway to the bar where she found Tony sitting at the end, nursing a Jack on the rocks. She stopped just shy of the doorway, admiring him. He was wearing a black t-shirt, jeans and had a touch of scruff. He looked very, very hot and much younger than his actual age. It took all of her power to remain in control and not tear his clothes off on the spot!
Right at that very moment, Tony looked up, seeing her for the first time. He grinned broadly, standing up as she approached him.
"Hi stranger!" he said, hugging her tightly, lifting Kristy off the floor. She sighed deeply, breathing in his masculine scent. The rest of the world ceased to exist right there and then.
"Hi Tony! It's been awhile, hasn't it?" she said laughing as he put her down.
"It's been much too long." he said, giving her a lopsided grin, gently touching her cheek. She felt herself blush under his gaze.
Kristy pulled up a stool and sat down next to Tony, touching his knees with hers. She ordered a chocolate espresso martini for herself. She tried to pay for it, but Tony insisted it be put on his tab.
They chatted effortlessly about everything and anything, their close friendship evident in their body language. As the alcohol started taking effect, they became sillier and more affectionate. And much more daring.
"So tell me Tony, on a scale from 1 to 10, one being just a co-worker and 10 being utterly in love with me, where do you fall?" Kristy asked giggling, trying to be serious, but failing miserably.
"1 to 10? Hmmm, let me think about it." he put his chin on his hand, drumming his fingers on his cheek. "Nine...with an asterisk!" he said, grinning.
"Why an asterisk?" she asked, confused.
"My conscience. You're married. But if you take away the star..." he said with a knowing grin.
Kristy raised her eyebrows, shocked. She never saw that coming. Before she could respond, he spoke again.
"What about you Kristy? What number are you?" Tony asked seriously, but with a mischievous twinkle in his eyes.
She thought about it a second, then got right in his face. She poked his chin with her finger, smiling.
"Me? I'm totally in love with you!" They looked each other deep in the eyes...and cracked up.
"You're turning red." he said lightly touching her jaw with his thumb, which made her blush even deeper. She covered her face and started laughing all over again.
"Thank God for alcohol...I'd never get the truth out of you, would I Tony?" Kristy said, hiccuping from laughing so hard. She looked at him and smiled.
"I will say this about you though..." softly stroking his cheek "...what you don't say with words you do say with your eyes."
He looked down, a faint blush creeping up in his cheeks. "You're right, I'm not very vocal. But you'll never, ever doubt my feelings for you." he said, leaning over to kiss her.
Kristy stood up quickly, almost knocking her stool over. She grabbed his hand, pulling him to his feet. "Come on. Let's go for a walk. It's a beautiful night."
"Good idea!" he said, quickly throwing the bartender a fifty, telling him to keep the change.
They walked outside into the brisk night air. Once they were far enough away from the bar, he put his arm around her shoulder, pulling her in close. She looped her fingers into his belt loop, quickly falling into stride with him. She leaned her head against him, and he kissed her temple. This was alone time they never had. They came upon a brick wall with an open iron gate. It was dark as ink beyond it. The only sound was the dry leaves rustling in the breeze.
"Ooh Tony, an old cemetery! Betcha I can make you like a dead person!" Kristy said, lightly stroking the front of his jeans. "It is Halloween, ya know."
"I don't know..." he said warily. "It's really...dark."
"Oh come on Tony, there's nothing to be afraid of. It's just trees and stones!" she said, smiling expectantly up at him.
"And dead bodies." he said, petulantly.
"Please? If you're a good boy I'll let you play with my pumpkins!" Kristy said, running her hands over her chest.
"OK, fine, let's go in." Tony said with a hesitant laugh. "I drive 200 mph, how bad can this be?".
Laughing, she took his hand, walking through the gates into the dark graveyard. As if prompted, an owl hooted nearby. Tony squeezed her hand a touch tighter.
They walked until they came to a large oak tree. She leaned against it, beckoning him to her. He walked up to her, gently placing his hands on her hips.
"You want to mess around in here?" he asked skeptically.
"Why not? It's not like we're going to wake anyone!" she said, running her hands down his chest.
"I knew...someone...who fooled around in a cemetery once." he said, quietly.
"So what? Lots of people have fooled around in places like this! Why? Who was it?" she asked.
Tony looked at the ground, scuffing his foot. "My mom." he said softly.
"What? For real? Were you conceived there?" she tried to stifle a laugh, but couldn't.
"Yeah, on Einstein's grave!" he laughed, looking up at the sky.
"Tony..." He looked down at Kristy, her dark eyes glowing in the blackness. "I'm not your mom."
To emphasize her point, she slowly unbuttoned her shirt, exposing her lace bra and ample cleavage to him. She took his hands, placing them on either side of her breasts. She moaned softly, running her hands through his hair as he ran his hands over them, squeezing gently.
Tony reached down, unbuttoning her the blouse the rest of the way, letting it drop softly to the ground. He wrapped his arms around her, holding her tightly.
"I've missed you." he whispered in her ear. She responded with a searing kiss. He deepened it, twining his left hand in her hair, his right hand kneading her breast.
"I've missed you Tony...so much." she whispered to the sky, as he trailed hot kisses down her neck. He pinned her against the tree, their hips grinding together urgently. What he couldn't say with words, he told her with a forceful kiss. It was all consuming, all encompassing...two lonely souls coming together that dark night.
"Do you want me Tony?" she whispered in his ear, lightly running her tongue along it's rim.
"Mmm hmm." he said as he grazed her earlobe with his teeth.
"I'm yours Tony. I always will be." she said in barely a whisper.
With that, he popped the clasp of her bra, exposing her to the cool night air. Her nipples jumped to attention from the chill. Tony grabbed one, twisting it between his thumb and forefinger. That set Kristy off. She pulled him in, kissing him again with her entire being. She pulled his shirt off, tossing it aside. She raked her nails down his back, illicting a groan from deep within him.
He quickly unbuttoned her jeans, sliding them down her legs. She did the same to Tony, simultaneously pulling his jeans down and dropping to her knees. She caressed his erection with both hands. She pulled his boxer briefs down, freeing it. Kristy spun Tony, pushing his back against the tree. She took the entire length of his cock in her mouth, compressing his head with her throat muscles. Tony roughly grabbed her hair, holding her down.
"Fuck...stop! I don't want to come yet." he hissed through his teeth. He pulled her back up to her feet, kissing her deeply. He reached down, squeezing her mound in his hand. She leaned against him as her knees buckled. He ran his fingers over her swollen clit.
"You're so wet. Do you want me Kristy?" he asked, turned the tables on her.
"Yes." she whispered.
He curved two fingers, burying them deep within her. He thrust hard, nearly knocking her off her feet. She came hard, burying her face in his chest to muffle her screams. Tony pulled away, his eyes gleaming with dominance.
"Over there." he said huskily, pointing to an old headstone. Kristy did as she was told. He turned her back to him.
"Bend over and hold on." he growled in her ear. She leaned over the stone, bracing herself for what was coming next. He spread her legs apart, running his cock the entire length of her before plunging in hard.
She arched her back to meet him thrust for thrust. He reached around, rubbing her clit until she came again. He grabbed her hips, violently pumping her over and over. At this point they had stopped thinking and let instinct take over.
"Oh shit! I'm gonna come..." he moaned loudly, dumping his seed into her. Kristy let out a groan as one final orgasm over took her. She draped herself over the headstone, attempting to catch her breath. Tony laid his forehead on her back, getting his bearings together.
Once they got dressed, they slowly walked back to their cars, neither one wanting the night to end. They held hands, but were quiet.
"What do we do now? Go another three months without seeing each other?" Tony asked, wrapping his arms around her waist.
"We'll see each other at work. I mean, we can steal hugs here and there." Kristy said sadly. "But, I know. It's not the same as being together."
"Do you love me Kristy?" Tony asked quietly.
"It's not like it matters. I'm married to Jason. I don't want to hurt him." she said, turning away from Tony. She didn't want him to see her cry.
"Bullshit! What does he do for you? He's never around!" he said angrily. "And you never answered my question. Do you love me?"
Kristy turned to him, tears streaming down her cheeks.
"Yes! Yes, I love you! I've been in love with you for months!" she said, looking down,sobbing. "Why? Are you in love with me?"
"I am." he said softly, embracing her. "We'll find a way to be together. I promise."
As they stood there that cold October night, they both knew in their hearts Tony was right. They would find a way...somehow.
