Chapter 11: Stop!
"Babe," Portman said that night, between two of the kisses that Julie was laying kisses all down him, she peeled her tee shirt off, and climbed on top of him, "We don't have to," she kissed him hard, "Mm, hold on,"
"What's wrong baby?" she kissed his neck. She groaned as his hands slid up to her neck.
"You said you didn't want to be like this," he said as she pulled back.
"No," she shook her head, "I said I didn't want it to be all about sex, which doesn't mean I only wanted to do it once," she kissed him again, "I want you Portman,"
"Jules," he whispered, "Do you think that in bed, you could call me Dean?" He rolled her over and started kissing all over her.
"Dean," she let out short of breath, his hands sliding up her thighs, "Oh God,"
"I love you babe," he groaned, as she began biting at his neck, "I love you so much."
"I love you too," she murmured, "Dean, I, oh," she whimpered,
"What is it?" He asked, "What do you want?"
"Stop, please," she said, he stopped and looked at her as she slid out from under him.
"Julie, what did I do wrong?" He said, "I thought that," he sighed, "Are you alright?"
"All day today, I've been thinking about this, about us," she said, "I just, I don't know how to handle everything."
"There's no guidebook for this territory, huh," he teased her, she nodded, "I'm scared too Julie."
"I don't even know what I'm scared of," she explained, "I mean, before it was taking that step, of being together, but now," she sighed, "I'm just afraid, I can't even name it."
"I can tell you what I'm afraid of," He kissed her softly, "I'm scared to death of how I feel about you. This is my first time here too,"
"You've done this before," she shook her head.
"I wasn't in love with her," he sighed, "I've told you that, and I'm so in love with you everything I feel with you is so intense, I'm afraid we're going to burn out."
"God," she smiled and lowered her forehead to his chest, "You found them."
"What?" He laughed.
"The words that I couldn't." she whispered. "You don't mind if we don't tonight?"
"Julie," he sighed, "No, but um," he looked down sheepishly, "I should shower, I guess."
"Oh God," she fell back laughing, "I'm not a virgin anymore and I'm still blue balling you, I'm so sorry."
"It's OK," he hopped out of bed and smirked at her, "I'm used to it."
"Hi," Aimee said quietly, walking into Luis's apartment the next day. "I thought you'd be here when you didn't come last night."
"Just needed to think," he said, she sat down. "What's happening to us?"
"I don't know," she said quietly, tears starting to form her eyes, "I only know how I feel about you."
"I think I should go home this summer," he said, she looked at him.
"You want to break up with me?" She said, shocked.
"No," he said, "No, but I think we need space Aimee, and I think I need to be home."
"We could go together," she said slipping her hand into his.
"I'd like that," he nodded and smiled, "But come on Princess, you know we can't, you have to work, you have a whole life here."
"You're more important than that," she kissed him, "We're more important than that." He smiled and closed his eyes. "Luis, I really can't say I'm sorry again, it wouldn't mean anything,"
"I know," he nodded, "Once was enough. It's my turn now. I acted like an asshole last night Aimee. I was stupid and jealous. I love you, and if you think you can work with this guy, and have nothing happen, I should trust you."
"I turned it down," she said, he looked at her surprised, "And asked for a transfer. You're right, it's not fair to you. I'm going to work Epcot now."
"Really?" He said surprised, "Epcot huh? But isn't that a step down?"
"Or MGM," she shrugged, "I have to audition, but I could get the Beauty and the Beast stage show, if I play my cards right."
"You didn't have to do that Aimee," he whispered.
"I wanted to," she said, "I was taking Cinderella in the first place because I was bored, I needed a change. This way, I don't have to learn a new character, I get to meet some new people and I still get the change. Besides, I think I want to go back to school in fall anyway."
"I hated that you dropped out." He smiled as she leaned back into him and put his arms around her. "You have so much potential Aimee Louise."
"You know what I love?" She smiled, "That my middle name is the same as your first name. It's like a freaky fate thing."
"It's nice," he nodded, "Aimee Louise Prescott."
"That was random," she giggled, "Luis Carlos Mendoza."
"I like your full name," he laughed tickling her, she laughed into a position under him, her hair falling into her eyes, "It's beautiful." He pushed the fallen strands behind her ear, leaned down and kissed her.
"We have pizza!" Goldberg's voice broke through, "Did we interrupt something?" He smiled, looking over at Averman, Kenny and Russ.
"No," Aimee and Luis said defeated and in unison.
"Awesome," Ken smiled and landed on the couch. "Fulton, Dwayne and Adam are on their way."
"Aren't they supposed to be in a hotel of some kind?" Luis said, eager to make up with his girlfriend fully.
"Uh, Charlie pretty much told them that if they came anywhere near they'd lose something fairly important," Averman nodded, "We would invade Julie and Portman, but well, something tells me the newly deflowered Cat would not want us, which leaves here. Besides we're on planes in 5 hours anyway."
"Your TV royally sucks," Russ said flipping through the limited cable that Luis had. "Ooh, Sandlot."
"Sweet!" The rest of the guys said.
"We're not watching Sandlot," Luis took the clicker. "Although that Benny is one good looking SOB."
"I always thought so," Aimee nodded, snatching it. "I love this movie. We're not changing it." The guys laughed, as Luis surrendered. Averman made a whipping motion and Russ made the noise.
"She gives me sex," Luis smiled, Aimee dropped her jaw, "When was the last time you guys got any?" The all stopped and stared at the TV, "That's what I thought."
"I don't want to go," Layla kissed Charlie, "Like really don't want to."
"I promise to call you," he smiled, "Promise, OK?"
"Guys promise things," she shook her head, "I mean, last night, we,"
"I know," he nodded, "I was there, but let's see, what can I swear on that will make you believe me," She closed her eyes. "Layla," he said, taking her hands, "I swear on my skates, stick and C that I will call you as soon as I land in Minnesota."
"That I will take," she kissed him again. "Thank you."
"For what?" He smiled, "I should thank you."
"I honestly thought my brothers and cousins could ruin Florida for me, and well," she smiled, "See, they didn't want to come to begin with, and, I'm just glad that you stalked me."
"I'm glad that you were drunk enough to give me your number," He laughed.
"Layla," one of her brother's came, "Come on we have a plane to catch. Hey," he nodded, "Did you come up with the flying V? Because it's fucking sweet!"
"Nah," Charlie shook his head, "Our coach got that one."
"Cool," He nodded, "Baby, we have to go."
"I know," she nodded, "Bye," she waved to Charlie.
"Bye," he smiled, and waved back. She smiled ran back and jumped up kissing him, wrapping her legs around his waist and her arms around his neck. He gripped her waist, holding her up. "What are you doing?"
"I always wanted to do that," she giggled pulling away, and sliding down. "This seemed like the perfect opportunity."
"I think you actually are insane," He laughed. "And I also think that I like it."
"You better," She smiled.
"Layla!" Her brother said, "Seriously, we have to go."
"I'm coming," she snapped. "OK, now for real. Bye."
"Bye," he laughed.
