“Do you want to talk about it?” …
“About the way you were looking at me earlier? I thought maybe we should…I mean, I know it could be awkward having a thing for your roommate.” I give her a wide smile.
Dick move. I know, but I am desperate to change the subject and even more desperate to explore the depths of this whole – Violet actually noticing me – situation.
Her jaw drops. Literally drops. She hops up and sits on the edge of the ottoman and points to the door behind me.
“Get out!” There’s a teasing tone to her voice still, like she’s amused, but also not brooking any bullshift from me.
“I mean, I just think we need to talk about your attraction to me if we’re going to be roommates. You know, boundaries and all that.” I hold my hands open like we need to have a frank discussion about it, and I can’t help but laugh as she launches a pillow squarely at my face.
“I’m supposed to be helping you get your shit together, not fantasizing about you, watching you…Oh my god, when I say it out loud, I feel like it’s even worse.” She presses her hand to her mouth, a horrified look on her face.
I can’t help but laugh at it, even though I regret it because it just makes her face contort even more.
“Violet.” I wrap my fingers around her wrist and pull her hand from her mouth.” I told you. I’ve been getting off thinking about you since I was a teenager. If one of us is a creep here, I promise it’s me.”
I don’t know if there are even the right words to explain what it means to finally have the person I’ve wanted, loved, wished for, for so damn long.
“You are it for me, Violet. I’m not exaggerating when I say you were and are in all my fantasies. The way you look, the sound of your voice, the little faces you make, fuck…the way you taste…and none of them can even touch the way you make me feel.”
