*Thanks to everyone who sent feedback. I really appreciate the supportive comments, you guys rock! And although all feedback may not always be in my favor, I do take the less than stellar, constructive ones into consideration, as well. For those who find the story/characters boring, sorry to hear you're not enjoying it as much as the previous ones. But I've decided to go a different route with this story, and I'm happy with where its going.
It may not please everyone, but hey, I'm not exactly setting out to do that, because it's pretty much impossible. As a writer who's constantly trying to improve, I'm always amazed and very pleased to know there are even people out there who enjoy the stories I create.
So to those who are hanging in with me, thanks for your continued interest! And the others who make the decision not to read on-no hard feelings- I'm sure you'll find other stories on this site more to your liking. This website is full of really talented authors, and has something for pretty much everyone. That's what I love about Literotica.
Anyways, sorry for the long ramble. Just thought I would say that. Oh, and please forgive any silly typos. I uploaded this late at night. And now, on to the latest installment. I hope you'll enjoy. :)*
As Erica drove along the familiar route from work toward home, she found herself thinking about her visit to her parent's house. Two days had passed since, and she was still recalling the bits of advice that her mother had given her about Cody.
'Contemplating about disastrous outcomes will do nothing except drive you crazy.'
The words her mother had spoken were very true, and she knew there was no use in allowing her imagination to run wild with negative thoughts, so she'd decided to just let things be, and not try to steer Cody away from doing what he wanted. There was no use in trying anyhow, seeing as how he was the dominating, determined type.
And while she had considered pulling away from him, she knew that wasn't possible. Her attraction to him was far too intense, so resisting him wasn't even an option. And even if she tried, she was certain it would only make him more eager to chase after her. Which wasn't necessarily a bad thing, considering that she enjoyed being pursued by him.
Once she arrived home, she put her car in park and headed for the door. As soon as she set foot inside of the Airstream, she kicked off her shoes, then made a dash for the bathroom. She'd felt an urgency to pee the entire time she'd been driving home, and her bladder was aching to be released. After relieving herself, she stripped out of her clothes and got into the tiny shower, making sure to put a shower cap on her hair before she turned the water on.
Once she was soaped up, she rinsed off, then got out of the tub and dried off. She wrapped a towel around her body and headed for her bedroom, but before she could enter, she heard the sound of her cell phone ringing. She turned and headed towards the front of the trailer, and after picking her purse up from the couch to dig through it, she retrieved her phone. Then she hit the answer call button and placed it against her ear.
"Hey gorgeous, how are you?"
"I'm good, and you?"
"Not too bad. You were on my mind, so I thought I'd give you call. What are you up to tonight?"
"My neighbor invited me over to watch a movie, so I'm getting ready to head over to her house."
"Break your plans with her and go out with me, instead."
Cocking an eyebrow, she playfully asked, "And why should I do that?"
"Because you'd much rather be with me," he said matter of factly.
"Of course you would. I think we both know that."
Her lips curled upward. "I really wasn't planning on going out tonight."
"I'll make it worth your time."
She felt a pleasant tingle sweep through her body from the huskiness in his voice. "Where would we go?"
"I know this cool bowling alley located downtown. They have a nice lounge with great food and drinks. How about we meet up there?"
"I think I know the place you're talking about. It's located off of Vista and Magnolia, right?"
Okay. Give me thirty minutes to get ready, and then I'll get on the road. I should be there in the next hour."
"Great, looking forward to seeing you."
"So am I. See you in a bit." She hung up the phone, then put it back in her purse and headed for the bedroom.
After stripping out of the towel, she put on a pair of lacy blue panties and a matching bra, then slipped into a form fitting black skirt that reached a few inches above her knees. She then put on a black bustier top, followed by a fitted blue cardigan, leaving the top three buttons undone so that a peek of the garment beneath could be seen. Then she put on a pair of black, strappy low heel mules.
After applying her makeup, she ran a paddle brush through her hair a few times, then she headed for the door, picking her purse up from the couch along the way. After locking the door to her Airstream, she got into her car and headed off. Twenty minutes later she arrived at the bowling alley, and as she walked through the door, she was greeted by Cody, who was standing right next to the entrance.
"Hey there." He pulled her into his arms for a hug, then leaned down to place a kiss on her lips.
"Good to see you," she said as they parted from the embrace.
"It's great to see you, too."
He gave her a charming smile and took her by the hand, leading her toward the lounge area. A song by Mariah Carey belted from the speakers as her video played on the flat screens located at the end of each lane. The sound of balls crashing against bowling pins mingled with the amiable chatter of the patrons, and blue neon lights lit up each of the lanes, giving the interior of the bowling alley a bright glow.
Erica and Cody wove their way through circular glass tables until they reached a high back leather sofa. Once they were seated, Cody stretched an arm along the back of the couch. She caught the faint scent of his cologne, and as it entered her nostrils, she found herself unconsciously leaning in closer to him.
Giving him a quick once over, she allowed her eyes to take in his jeans and black button down shirt. The first few buttons were undone, leaving a peek of his chest exposed, and she felt a strong urge to undo a few more of the clasps so she could have a better look.
"Did I mention how sexy you look tonight?" He asked.
She felt a delightful shiver run up her spine in response to his compliment. "Thanks, you look nice too." Placing her palm on his thigh, Erica gave it a gentle rub, causing his eyes to drift down to her hand. He then looked back up at her with a surprised, but pleased expression. She met his gaze head on, making no attempt to hide the intense desire that she felt for him.
"I like that top you're wearing." He turned his gaze downward, allowing his eyes to briefly linger on the undone buttons of her cardigan, indulging himself in a tantalizing peek of cleavage. Then he glanced back into her eyes. "You smell really good, too."
"As do you." Their eyes locked, and just when she was certain she couldn't get any more turned on, he did something that really drove her crazy.
Leaning in closer to her, he placed his lips next to her ear and seductively whispered into it. "I bet you taste even better than you smell."
Erica felt her inner muscles clench in response, and she gave a dry swallow, then licked her lips. "You may just be right about that." Her voice came out sounding husky.
"So when are you going to give me the chance to find out?" Cody asked.
His lips were a mere few inches from touching hers, and every time he spoke, the faint scent of mint entered her nostrils.
"I don't know. I guess you're just going to have to be patient and wait."
"Don't keep me waiting too long. I don't know how much longer I can keep this appetite of mine under control."
She felt herself grow wet from his words, and shifted slightly in her seat, hoping to create a bit of friction to ease some of the tension that was building between her legs. The dim mood lighting in the lounge created a sultry atmosphere, and it only seemed to enhance the sexual energy that hung between them.
A waitress outfitted in a mid thigh black skirt and a fitted white blouse that emphasized her cleavage strolled toward them, and as she reached the couple, she offered them a friendly smile.
"Hi there, what can I get you two?" Despite the fact that that Erica was there also, the waitress kept her eyes pinned directly on Cody.
"I'll take a peach daiquiri," said Erica.
Making no effort to make eye contact with her, the waitress wrote Erica's order down on a small pad. "Sure thing." She then looked up from the pad of paper and focused her deep brown eyes back on Cody. "And what can I get for you?"
"Do you guys have any draft beer? I don't see it on the list of drinks." He scanned the menu in his hands.
"We sure do." She bent over and placed a palm against the back of the lounge sofa, allowing it to rest a hairs inch from Cody's shoulder.
With the position she was in, it allowed the crease of her breasts to be on prominent display, and as Erica caught glance of her nametag, she saw that the woman's name was Alexis. The waitress pressed her finger against the glossy surface of the menu, then slid a long nail downward to motion along the area of where the list of draft beers were located. As her finger skated southward, it bumped against one of Cody's fingertips, a move that Erica was certain the waitress had planned.
"The draft beers are in the left column, right next to the where your thumb is resting."
"Oh, right. Don't know how I missed that."
"It's no problem." She gave him a brief touch on the arm, then stood back up to her full height.
Cody took a short moment to look over the list, and then gave the waitress his order. "I'll take a bottle of Guinness."
"Sure thing. Coming right up." She flipped her long curly hair over her shoulder, then turned on her heel and walked away.
As Erica watched her leave, she couldn't help feeling amused by the woman's exaggerated switch, and found herself a bit surprised by the waitresses' blatant attempt to flirt with Cody.
"Looks like you have an admirer," she said.
"What do you mean?"
Her lips formed into a little smirk. "Oh come on, she was totally flirting with you."
"Yeah, I guess. Too aggressive for my taste, though. It's a turn off when a woman tries that hard."
"When she comes back to take our food order, I bet she'll make another pass at you."
"She can try all she wants, but my attention has already been captured, and once I find something I'm interested in, I keep it very close to me."
He leaned in to nuzzle her neck, allowing his lips to lightly brush against her skin. Then he placed a tender kiss on her flesh. She felt her heart quicken, and a breathless little sound of contentment escaped her lips.
The waitress arrived with their drinks, and sat them down on the glass table in front of them. Then she pulled out a pen and a little pad of paper, eyeing the couple's amorous display with a look of disappointment.
"Will you be ordering any food this evening?" Her voice was rife with impatience.
Cody pulled away from Erica's neck, then grabbed a food menu from the table. "Can you give us a minute, please? We haven't had time to look it over yet."
The waitress nodded, then headed off into another part of the lounge. Erica couldn't help but feel triumphant, and she leaned in to look at the menu Cody was holding. After a few minutes of scanning the various dishes, they settled on some appetizers. Neither of them were all that hungry, so they decided to just order some finger foods, rather than a full meal. The waitress came back to take their order with pen poised above pad, and a sour expression on her face.
"What would you like?" She asked Erica.
"Can I have the grilled cheese sliders, please?"
She nodded. "And for you?" As her eyes shifted to Cody her expression softened, and she offered him a flirtatious smile.
"I'll have the crispy chicken fingers. And can I get extra dipping sauce with it?"
"You sure can." She took the menus from them, then walked off.
Peering suspiciously at her drink, Erica said, "You think she put poison in it?"
A light chuckle passed his lips. "No, but she probably spit in it."
"Oh, thanks." She sarcastically said.
His lips pulled into a grin. "I was only kidding."
"You're probably right, though. Which means she'll most likely do the same to my food." She set the drink down, deciding it might be better if she left it untouched.
"Oh babe, I was only joking around." He wrapped an arm around her waist and pulled her closer against him. "I don't want you to be afraid of enjoying your food and drinks. I want you to have a good time."
She glanced in the waitresses' direction, and saw that she was leaning over the bar counter, chatting with the bartender, who was a muscular black man with shoulder length dreadlocks. Realizing how hesitant Erica was, Cody picked up her peach daiquiri and tipped it to his lips. After taking a few swallows, he passed her the drink.
"Now that I've taken a drink, you take one as well. That way if she did spit in it, then at least we'll both have gotten her germs."
"That's got to be the most unconventionally romantic thing that anyone has ever done for me. You're willing to risk the possibility of spit germs just to put me at ease?" She leaned in to place a kiss on his cheek. "How sweet of you." She took a swallow of the drink and then set it down.
"I'd do anything to make you feel good. The last thing I want is for your evening to be spoiled."
"Well thank you, baby. I appreciate the gesture." She lay her head against his shoulder, and placed a hand on his chest.
"So what do you think about playing some pool after this?"
"They have pool tables here?"
"Yep, they're located upstairs."
"Sounds like fun. I love playing pool."
The waitress approached with their food, then set it down on the table in front of them.
"Grilled cheese sliders," she said as she set the plate in front of Erica. "And crispy chicken fingers with extra sauce." Her eyes fixed intently on Cody's, and she pushed her chest out, as if she were serving herself up to him, instead of the food. "Is there anything else I can get you?"
"Nope." He turned to glance at his date. "How about you, Erica?"
"Nope, I'm all set."
"Alrighty, enjoy your meal." She bounced off, her curly hair moving along with the rhythm of her steps.
"So I'm guessing you're not the jealous type," Cody said.
"Not really. Jealousy leads to drama, and I've had enough of that in my past. And besides, there's no reason to be jealous of that waitress. I'm the one you're with."
"That's right, you are." He looked her straight in the eyes as he said it, then grabbed a chicken finger and swirled it in some dipping sauce.
Erica picked up one of her grilled cheese sliders and studied it for a few moments, trying to see if there was anything unusual about its appearance. Cody watched her with a look of amusement.
"Think she left some DNA in there?"
She gave him a little smile. "I know, I'm being completely paranoid, aren't I?"
He grabbed one of the mini sandwiches from her plate, then dunked it into some dipping sauce. After popping it into his mouth, he said, "Your turn."
She aimed the slider for her mouth and pushed it inside, then took a bite. She gave a little sound of contentment. "Not bad." She pushed the remainder of the sandwich into her mouth.
"Sorry I can't offer you some of my appetizer."
"No worries." She picked up another slider and then positioned it over his sauce. "Mind if I try a bit of your dipping sauce?"
"Not at all. Help yourself."
She coated her appetizer with the dressing, and then popped it into her mouth. "Mmm, that's some tasty sauce."
"It is pretty good, isn't it?"
They ate the remainder of the food in contented silence, then once their plates were empty, they paid the bill and headed up to the second level of the bowling alley. Taking her by the hand, Cody led the way. Her heels clicked against the floor as she walked beside him, and as they passed by the area where the pool tables were located, Erica found herself wondering why he was continuing ahead.
"I thought you said we were coming up here to play pool?" She asked.
She waited for him to elaborate, but he chose instead to remain silent. They continued along for a few more feet before finally reaching a black door, and he turned the knob and pushed it open, allowing her to enter first. As Erica walked inside, she saw there was a single pool table inside. A row of metallic lights hung above the table, and a few wall sconces provided the room with soft illumination.
She heard the click of a lock as he secured the door behind them, and then he walked over to the rack where the pool cues were located. After retrieving two pool sticks and chalking them up, he sauntered over to where she stood. She couldn't help noticing the predatory look in his eyes, and she began to wonder just what type of a game he truly planned for them to play.
"I didn't know they had private rooms here." Her eyes roved around the interior, noting the way that the dim lighting bounced off the dark walls to create a sensual atmosphere. "How much did the rental of this room cost you?"
"The amount of money I paid doesn't really matter. The only thing I'm concerned with is getting in some private time with you. And since you won't invite me over, I figured this is the next best thing."
Cody leaned the pool sticks against the edge of the table. Then he stepped behind her and snaked an arm around her waist. He pulled her hair back so that her shoulder was exposed. Then she felt his lips press against the crook of her neck, and she gave a little shiver at the feel of his breath against her skin. The first few kisses he gave her were soft and gentle, and then his mouth began to press more firmly, with increasing passion and desire.
She felt a warm, wet sensation as his tongue peeked out to slide against her skin, and she released a little whimper in response. Erica tilted her head to allow him better access to her neck, and he lightly slid his wet appendage along the graceful arch of her neck. When he pulled his mouth away from her, she found herself craving more of his touch, and she unabashedly pressed her body closer against him.
"You know how badly I want you, don't you?" His breath ghosted against the wet trail that was left behind on her neck.
"Yes." Her voice came out sounding breathless, and her pulse began to race as she felt his palm slide down over her hips, tracing the womanly curves of her body.
"Does it excite you, knowing that I'll eventually capture you?"
"How can you be so certain you'll capture me?"
"Oh, I will," he self assuredly said. "You sure are making me chase after you, though. I like that."
His palm was now sliding down her leg, and right before it reached mid thigh, he suddenly changed course, maneuvering his hand so that it slowly moved upward. His fingers grazed along the inner part of her thigh, languidly traveling further northward towards the heat between her legs. Yet just before his fingers could reach her aching spot, she suddenly grabbed hold of his wrist, halting his movement before he could go any further.
"The more you deny me, the more I want you. You really know how to make me completely crazy for you, don't you?" His voice came out sounding husky.
"Of course, that's the idea."
"Can you feel my excitement for you?" He pressed his groin more firmly against her backside, allowing her to feel his straining erection.
