Finding Love in Odd Places

It should not have been that difficult for her to be just Alex's friend right? They had known each other for some time now, they had a lot of things in common, and they enjoyed spending time together. Yet, over the last few days she had been intentionally avoiding the strong woman she had tried so hard to keep in her life. Truthfully Helen felt pathetic, almost like a love-sick perverted boy who had a crush on the most attractive girl in school, in fact she felt a lot like Joe and Brian when they had first met Alex. Chasing her around, staring at her body, trying to get her to notice them romantically. Only she chose to watch her from afar and make sure they had no contact what-so-ever.
The blonde had not called Davis in days, nor had she worried about him calling her like she usually did. Her mind was preoccupied as were her blue eyes that were currently watching the other woman wipe grease and sweat from her neck and chest. 'God… even dirty she is freaking gorgeous… I mean…' Her eyes wandered down to her friend's exposed cleavage and her eyes widened. 'No! Don't you dare think those thoughts Helen Chapel!'
Suddenly she was snapped out of her thoughts as she heard the familiar voice of the woman she had been staring at. "Hey, what's up Helen?" Alex asked smiling as she straddled one of the stools at the café setting down the dirty rag on the counter top.
"Huh?" Helen asked, momentarily confused before forcing a smile and saying in a cheery southern accent. "Oh hey Alex, I'm doing pretty good. How are things with you?"
"Good." The brunette stated as she leant her head against her hand. "Hot."
"That you are." She mumbled biting down on her bottom-lip as blue eyes wandered over the beautiful woman's long exposed neck. Sweat coated the skin and for a second the blonde wondered what it would be like to bite down on that sensitive skin. What she tasted like, felt like.
"What?" Alex asked raising an eyebrow at her friend.
Blushing brightly due to her embarrassment Helen averted her greedy eyes before reaching out and picking up one of the glasses that had already been cleaned, frantically cleaning it once again. "Uh, nothing. I didn't say nothing. I just meant you are sweating so yeah you are obviously hot." She laughed uncomfortably under a disbelieving brown eyed stare before deciding to try and change the subject. The last thing she wanted to talk about while trying to control her ridiculous sexual urges for her best friend was just how sexy her friend was. "So, did you want something?"
Watching the blonde woman run around the kitchen cleaning random things and rambling Alex had a feeling that something was going on. 'Not to mention she just called you hot… which I guess could mean two different things… so why do I for some reason wish it was that she found me attractive… that is ridiculous.' Ignoring her confusing thoughts she smiled uncomfortably as she did often when in a situation that did not make much sense to her. "Uh, yeah. Just a coffee and a doughnut."
"Coming right up!" Helen said enthusiastically as she busied herself getting the coffee and the tasty treat, trying to busy her mind.
Silence filled the café for a moment now that the blonde had busied herself intently with the coffee machine. The air between the two women was full of tense awkwardness and Alex found her brown eyes wandering over the beautiful blonde's body, down toward her swaying hips. She seemed to be humming and dancing to a song that the other girl did not recognize. 'I can't believe she used to be heavy… she looks amazing, the way her body moves… I wonder what it would have been like if I let her take me that night… wait! No… STOP!'
"Hey there babe." Brian said wrapping his arm around his girlfriend's shoulder pulling her close to him kissing her cheek. "I was thinking maybe we could have some fun tonight."
Momentarily Alex was startled but she quickly covered it flashing an uncomfortable smile up at Helen as she delivered her coffee. "What do you mean have some fun?"
"You know what I mean… It's been a while." He hinted in a soft voice though it didn't stop Helen from hearing it and visibly cringing. It was probably pathetic of her to be jealous of Brian. Okay, it was definitely pathetic, Brian was the most immature man she had ever met. 'Yet he gets to sleep with that amazing woman tonight…' She felt ill.
"Oh, right. Sure." The brunette shrugged it off despondently as she stared down into her coffee, watching the steam rising from it. How was she supposed to explain that she had not slept with him in a while because she had been uninterested. She was interested in a certain blonde. But, they were just friends.
"Sure?" Brian laughed. "Nice and enthusiastic there." He laughed turning to Helen. "Can you believe that reaction Helen?"
Raising an eyebrow blue eyes looked him over and a smirk crossed her face. "Surprisingly yes."
"Psh." He let out. "I can tell when I'm not wanted around." His voice was honest but also playful as it often was. Both girls could tell that he was not actually upset with either of them, it was simply the way that Brian was. Smiling he leant over kissing his girlfriend before turning and walking away. "I'll let you two girls get back to girl talk."
After saying goodbye to the younger Hacket brother the women smiled shaking their heads before the awkward silence once again surrounded them. Finally Alex could not handle it any longer, she needed to say something and let out the strange feelings she had been having. Moments earlier she had been practically stripping the blonde with her mind for Christ's sake. "Helen, I think we need to talk."
"Again?" Helen questioned with worried eyes and a shaking voice, she had hoped they could just ignore the embarrassment from the other night.
"Thanks." Alex rolled her brown eyes.
"Oh no no, I didn't mean it like that Alex. It's just I really don't wanna talk about all of this again. Can't we just put it behind us?"
Standing to her feet the brunette made her way behind the counter resting her head on the shorter woman's shoulder nearly pressing her lips to the other woman's ear as she whispered out hotly against it. Pressing her body against Helen's back, placing her strong hands on her hips holding her in place against her own body. This mixed with the hot breath against her sensitive neck caused the blonde to close her blue eyes and let out a soft moan of pleasure and excitement as her body shook and begged to be touched.
"I don't think we can just put this behind us Helen, considering how badly I want to touch you right now." Her voice came out deep, raspy, and dripping with lust that again caused Helen to shiver.
"Oh god… Alex."
"Now can we go and talk in Joe's office please?"
