When I opened the hotel room door I was less then surprised when I realized the room was already a mess. Clothes and shoes and bags were thrown on top of everything. Tori was standing in front of a full length mirror, turning in circles, admiring her self.
"Are you going out somewhere?" I ask, startling her so much that a blue orb was thrown from her finger tips and at my head. I ducked quickly, but tripped on the rug and fell to the floor. The orb hit the door with a loud pop.
"Dang it, Chloe! Are you okay?" Tori yelled at me, running to help me off the floor. Behind me then damaged door flung open and a very large, very confused, very worried and totally gorgeous Derek.
"What the heck, Tori?" He growled, shooing her away and gently helping me stand.
"Are you okay? Are you hurt?" he whispered hastily, looking me over for any missing limbs or blacked eyes.
"No, I'm fine." I answered, stumbling a little. A 'your lying' look was set on his perfect face.
"I promise." I whispered so only he could hear.
"I'm s-so sorry, Chloe. You scared me and-and I just.. " Tori stuttered. She looked as if she was going to burst into tears at any moment.
"Don't worry about it, Tori. I'm fine. It didn't even hit me." I smiled a hopefully reassuring smile at her. Apparently it worked, a loud sigh let out of her mouth, like she had been holding her breath.
"Tori, I'm going to steal Chloe for a little while. She needs something for that sunburn. Have fun on your date." Derek said, pulling me gently out the door with him.
"Thank you." I heard her whisper before he pulled the door to. I honestly thought that he was just going to leave it at that. Boy was I wrong. The outside wall of the hotel met my back gently as I was pushed against it. Bright green eyes searched every visible part of my body, which was most of it because I was still in my slinky red bikini. I didn't dare argue, the look on his face was intent. After what felt like an eternity he met my eyes and nodded, a silent 'Okay I'm done freaking out now that I know you're okay.'
"I told you I was fine." I mumbled quietly, earning a grunt. Derek started walking, not waiting or telling me to go with him. With a sad sigh I stared down at my bared feet. I had probably ticked him off. Again.
"Are you coming?" startled, I met his eyes quickly and nodded, meeting him in the sand. It had gotten dark quickly and the beach was empty of people. The moon lit up the ocean waves beautifully as they crested and the tide came in,
"Wow." Was all I could say. A smirk from the man beside me.
"Want to try swimming again?" this surprised me.
"Really? Could we?" I ask excitedly. A chuckle. Pulling off his shirt quickly, he took off running diving head first into the water. A moment passed before he surfaced again, grinning like a fool.
"Come here." He ordered lightly, still smiling. Slowly I walked into the water, which was surprisingly warm, only hesitating when the waves began to hit around my chest. Derek swam up coolly and wrapped me tightly in his arms.
"Trust me?" he whispered in to my hair near my ear, walking backwards into the water. With a catch in my breath I nodded.
"Good." He said. And then he let go. I tried very, very hard not to freak out and kicked my feet like Derek had taught me.
"Derek." I pleaded lightly as I turned to find him. His arms were back around my waist in an instant as he hugged me tight from behind.
"I'm right here." He sighed into the crook of m neck. My god he had no idea what he was doing to me. My heart was racing and my breath couldn't catch. His voice was rough and husky as he breathed my in. his hands moved slowly in small circles on my stomach. I leaned back into his chest and heard his breath catch. I turned around quickly to see what was wrong, but my question was stopped dead in my throat once I caught his eyes. The green was even brighter and shone in the moonlight and the emotions they held. Fear, passion, lust, longing and others I couldn't read.
"Thank you." I found my self saying. A huge smile broke on his face.
"No need to thank me. Yet. " he leaned down slowly and rested his forehead on mine. I could feel his hot breath on my lips and without thinking licked my bottom lip lightly. His breath caught.
"I-I, god Chloe." He groaned when he couldn't form logical sentences.
"I'm not in any hurry. Take your time." I whispered, leaning in closer to his lips so that mine barely brushed his bottom lip. He groaned and tightened his grip on my hips.
"I can't think when you're this close." He admitted.
"I can leave if you'd like?" slightly pulling back away from him.
"No!" he gripped at me tighter and pulled my small body closer to his.
"No, don't go. Please."
"Okay." I murmured against his lips, feeling braver then I actually was. This earned a small growl.
"I need to tell you something."
"Tell me." We were talking in whispers even though no one was around.
"CHLOE?" a high pitched yell came from the shore. Tori. Derek groaned and pulled away from me, taking my hand and leading me to the sand.
"Chloe? Is that you?" she ask, unable to see in the dark.
"Yeah, Tori, it's me." I ran up to her and started walking away from Derek and that wonderful moment between us.
"Where's wolf-boy?" she ask as we walked. I thru a look over my shoulder to show he was following far behind us, giving me dirty looks as he did,
"So what did you guys do?" she grinned suggestively. I rolled my eyes to hide the blush on my face.
"Pathetically attempted to swim." I whined, she bought it.
"You'll learn eventually." She assured.
"I'm going to drown." I said matter-of-factly. A snort came from behind us and Tori grinned.
"Yeah, like he would let that happed." She laughed, throwing her head back at him.
By this time we were back at the hotel.
"Oh, by the way Simon is going to stay over here tonight and you're going to stay with Derek. Just in cause." She looked sad recalling the event from earlier
"Oh. It's okay, Tori. At least you didn't hit me." I grinned, winking at her, earning a smile. We said our good nights and Derek popped his head in the room to say good night to Simon as I went to the next room.
The room was huge, with one large bed, a couch, a small kitchen area, a bathroom and a wall of sliding glass doors with a beautiful view of the ocean. I was standing at the glass doors when Derek came in. He leaned against the door across the room from me and stared.
"Quit staring." I mumbled. A low chuckle.
"I can't help it. I like what I'm looking at." I blushed bright at his brashness.
"It's late. I'm going to bed." I said blankly, heading for the couch.
"And where do you think you're going?" he ask gruffly pulling off his shirt, uncovering a god like body.
"Couch." Was all I could say. He smirked cockily when I couldn't make myself look away.
"Now who's staring?" he fell back on the bed grinning at me.
"You're not sleeping on the couch." Blunt and commanding.
"I'll be okay." I argued flipping onto my side on the black leather sofa.
"I'm not arguing with you. Just go to bed." I mumbled sleepily. Thump. Thump. I opened my eyes to see him throw a pillow on the floor beside the bed and lay down on it.
"What are you doing?" I snapped.
"You're going to hurt your self. Get in bed.
"You first." He smirked, eyes still closed. He was so full of him self.
"Fine. Come on." I growled, walking past him and jumping under the covers. Silently he followed.
"You are so stubborn." I growled when I felt his weight on the end of the bed.
"Only when it comes to certain things." He whispered.
"Go to sleep." I had just about fell asleep when I felt him lay beside me hesitantly. I rolled over on my side to face him. His bright green orbs shone brightly down at me. I scooted close to him and buried my head in his chest, his strong arms wrapped around my waist and held me to him.
"Go to sleep, Chloe." He whispered into my hair. I fell asleep to the sound of his heartbeat and off tune humming of cheer up sleepy jean.
I woke up in a cold sweat and sat straight up in bed. Another nightmare. Rubbing my hands over my face, I calmed down a bit and got my breathing back to normal.
"Chloe? What's wrong?" a sleepy form beside me ask, sitting up.
"Nothing. Just a another nightmare. Go back to sleep. I didn't mean to wake you up." I sighed. Of coursed he didn't listen.
"You okay?" Derek ask, sitting up and leaning back against the headboard. His hair was a mess and he had no shirt on making him look completely adorable. I couldn't help but smile a little.
"Yeah. I'm sorry I woke you up."
"I'd be mad if you didn't." he replied bluntly. I smiled at him lightly and went back to staring at the wall. I expected him to go back to sleep but he continued to watch me carefully. With a sigh I leaned back on the headboard and watched him watch me.
My eyes began to get heavy and I leaned over on him, resting my head lightly on his arm. That wasn't close enough for him. I ended up laying so close to him that I looped on of my legs though his and he pulled me tight to his chest and let one arm fall over my hip while the other played with my hair. I was so many things at this moment my head ached. Comfortable. I was comfortable with him. Safe. I felt protected. And the strongest emotion I felt was; love. I loved him dearly.
"Sweet dreams, my Chloe."
