Oh, the pleasure of being on acruise! Love you, Adam, I thought, and push my sunglasses up my nose, sipping my juice from a straw. James, next to me is ogling at the girls near the swimming pool, with a smile.
“Aurélie!!!!!!” Ethan sister, Vanessa, let out a scream when she sees me, gets out of the pool and wraps a towel around her waist. James let out a whistle.
“Hey!” I say, not too enthusiastically. She SO knows about me and Ethan!! She takes the pool chair next to me and winks, “Don’t worry, Ethan is going to come in a few. ”Haha…Actually, that’s exactly what I’m worrying about.
“Urrm, Vanessa…what did Ethan exactly told you about us…??” I ask
“That you two are married!” She exclaims as if it’s the most obvious thing in the world, and James let out a very loud and uncharacteristic laughter. My brother has a strange habit of mocking me.
“Alright.” I gulp, deciding to quietly sip my juice. Unfortunately, I’m not that lucky.
“Hi, Sweetheart!” Ethan walks in front of me and smiles. Yeah, dude! So you have a damn good dentist. No need to gloat about it!
“What d’ya want, dude?” I ask in a bored voice.
“You said yourself we have to talk!”
“Yeah. Well, I’ve change mymind.” If you see him shirtless here like that you would have said the same thing. I mean, who could think straight while seeing his amazing chest in front of them. Though, I’ll still prefer to have someone with Adam’s chest…or lack of thereof. I mean, this way breathing will be much easier. I don’t want an asthma attack. Not that I’m asthmatic or anything.
“Move it Ness. I gotta talk to my wife here.” He pushes Vanessa out of her pool lounge, and strangely she wasn’t angry a bit. She just seemed pretty excited! The word ‘my wife’ got my juice to come up till my nose though.
He sits on the chair and turns to face me.
“Okay I have a question!” I ask
“Urrr, did we…” I’m trying to find the best way to say this to him. If we had sex, I mean. “When we got…married, did we…” I say wiggling my two forefingers in a pathetic manner to explain.
“Oh, you mean sex!” Ethan exclaims as if he’s talking about the weather. James beside me spits his drink.
“Yes.” I say weakly, drowning in my own embarrassment.
“No, we didn’t.”
“Oh, THANK GOD!!” I exclaim and let out the breath I was holding.
“Just as we were getting to it you felt… unconscious. And I don’t make it a habit to sleep with unconscious women.”
“I was naked though…” This conversation is getting way too embarrassing.
“Yeah, you smelt alcohol so I took your clothes off.” He says matter-of –fact. Now that gets me to see red!
“You FREAK, you stupid PERV!” I pick my sandal and throw it at him. He ducks.
“Oh, and you still owe me my wedding night, sweetheart!” He smiles casually.
“Oh, stop talking as if you’re in some kind of B-Grade romance novel!” With that I stomp on his feet and walk off.
“Hey that hurt!” I hear him screaming and I smile in satisfaction.
Extract from Ethan’sJournal: (2)
‘What’s wrong sweetheart?” I asked, caressing her shoulder and sitting on the pavement next to her. Her tears made my heart to melt like wax.Well, it could be the alcohol too.
“My heels are broken!” She burst out crying real hard, making me to laugh. Seriously, her heels? Girls!
“Ohh, that’s too bad sweetheart!” I faked a sad voice.
“Should I call a cab for you?” I asked though all I wanted to do was to kiss her…I guess that was the alcohol talking.
But I seriously couldn’t resist. I dipped my head a bit, giving her time to back away. She just looked at me,her eyes big like a green pool. Lightly, I brushed my lips with hers, and drew back. Because I knew if I hadn’t, I wouldn’t have been able to stop. Deep down, I knew I fell in love with her right there. Within just a few hours. It was love at first frostbite for me…surrounded with all these snowflakes. And when she asked me if I would marry her, though I knew it wasn’t a request, but just a random question, I said yes.
Hope you guys like it. Enjoy!
