Dom pulled up to the housing project in anticipation. He had been seeing Letty casually for the last six months and still could not ignore the nervous feeling in the pit of his stomach when he thought of her. Letty had been the first girl to truly grab his attention. Unlike with other girls, her appearance was the last thing he noticed. Her mouth was what had attracted him to her; not the way it looked, though he did love her pout, but rather what came out of it. Her tongue was fierce in more ways than one. The first time he had ever heard her voice was when she was telling someone off. She was rough around the edges, but after getting to know her he learned she was good for more than shits and giggles. Dom heard about some of her race related antics with some of the local guys and saw a lot of potential in her. Letty's passion for cars was evident, and he was hoping to use it to his advantage. He brought her by his dad's garage, and after about all of ten minutes his dad offered her gig. Letty had that way about her. When she let you she was so very easy to love and her personality of infectious. His best friend Vince also took a liking to her, though it took him a while to realize Dom's interests were not platonic in any sense.
Unlike Dom, Letty did not have much of a home or supportive network. She had family scattered across the states, and found herself in California a few years ago when her mother decided to follow her then boyfriend west of the United States. It was not the most ideal living arrangements because tempers tended to flare more often than not. The only time she ever felt a sense of escape was when she was behind the wheel. It comforted her to feel she had the power to get away as far as she wanted. Unfortunately, she had been illegally driving for the last few years with no car of her own. She even learned how to boost and hot wire cars from her mom's ex who used her innocent looks to his advantage. She could blame him for corrupting her, but her mom's lifestyle would have led to someone eventually taking on that role. She made her way down the fire escape as she snuck out of her apartment. Her mom had been preoccupied with other activities to notice.
"Sup." Dom greeted her. He always did his best to keep his cool in front of people. He was usually quite good at it, but often found that Letty could see past it. She nodded in acknowledgement.
"Where we goin'?" She asked him casually.
"Wait till you see." He said. She smirked at his remark. For some reason he never told her where they were headed. It allowed for the element of surprise, but in all honesty she simply did not care. She wanted to get away from home and Dom had become her escape. He did not know this; he just knew he liked her A LOT. They enjoyed each other's company in more ways than one. They arrived at the entrance of the Hollywood sign and Letty looked at him with smile.
"You know its illegal to jump that fence right?"
"You planning on telling someone?"
"You planning on hiding this car so we don't get caught?"
"Are you actually concerned?"
"Don't make me laugh. You're the one who has to report back to daddy if your little plan goes wrong." Ever since Letty had begun to work alongside Dom she had learned of the strong and respectful bond he held with his father. She was a bit envious seeing as how she could count the number of times she had ever interacted with her father.
"Don't act like you're not afraid of my pops."
"I can always get another job."
"You want to?" He asked with slight hesitation.
"Not at the moment" She stated simply. She then turned to face with a mischievous look on her face. "So…"
"I got a few beers in the back." Dom said aloofly.
"You're such a bad influence on me. I'm only sixteen." She said teasingly with a fake pout.
"Spare me." He said, but could not resist giving her a lingering look as he stared at her lips. Dom had just turned nineteen and felt slightly weird about seeing someone who was still in high school even though she barely went. He couldn't help the way he felt about her, but convinced himself they would take it extremely slow. Though Letty wanted to come off as experienced, he could tell she lacked the required knowledge as to the ethics of fooling around. She did not come on to him how other girls did. When she flirted it was very subtle, and it took him a couple months to even establish that repertoire.
Dom grabbed a six-pack and blanket from the back seat. "Are you going to need help jumping the fence?"
She snorted loudly at the insult, "Yea right".
They both got out of the car and made their way over the fence and up to the sign. Dom laid the blanket so that they can sit facing the city, and popped open two Coronas.
"It's nice up here." Letty commented.
"Yea, I like coming up here to think sometimes." Dom said pensively.
"What about?' She asked curiously.
"A little bit of everything I guess." There was a long stretch of silence as they both took in the scenery. Los Angeles was brightly lit and you could here the bustle of the city from the distance.
"I saw Mia at school today." She began, before Dom interrupted her.
"You actually went? Good for you."
"Shut up." She said as she pushed him.
"I know the deal you made with my dad." Dom informed her. She raised an eyebrow in surprise. His father had required Letty meet a grade criterion in order for him to teach her what she wanted to learn about racing.
"He told you about that?"
"In a way. But I'm pretty sure that wasn't point of your story."
"Well, I didn't know she was so involved. She literally does everything."
"Yea," He said as he took a swig of his beer, "dad's proud."
"Why aren't you more like her?" Dom chuckled.
"I wish I was, but we just aren't built the same way I guess."
"You'll probably clean-up and turn into a good boy, huh?" She asked cheekily.
"Nah, you'd get sick of me and jet if I did that."
"Why does that matter?"
"I kinda like having you around." He answered suggestively.
"So you're just going to keep breaking the rules for my sake?"
"Don't give yourself too much credit. I like to have fun. When I stop enjoying whatever it is I'm doing I'll find other things to occupy my time with." Letty looked down, slightly embarrassed by her suggestion and reconsidering the 'fun' she and Dom had been having lately. He grabbed her face and caressed it lightly. "Don't get me wrong. This has been more than just a cheap thrill to me." Letty smiled and he leaned in for a kiss. It was gentle at first as their lips lightly grazed each other, but soon it turned into something more. Their kiss intensified as their tongues wrestled. They sucked and bit each other's lips for what seemed like just a few moments, but in reality had been hours. Dom's hand had roamed over her body, enticing her with every movement. She was equally aggressive as she gripped his neck and shoulders.
"I want you." Dom whispered to her. It did not necessarily shock her, but it caught her off guard. He usually was not this forward, often acting on what he desired rather than stating it.
"Ok." She said submissively. She had not really thought about loosing her virginity this way, but knew that she wanted Dom, and that he had been good to her. Letty was not a romantic waiting on her prince charming, but did want to do it when it felt right. The topic was not something she took lightly, but he had a power over her she could not explain. They continued to kiss feverishly as Dom's hands continued to creep inside her sweatpants while they dry humped each other.
"Not here." He told her as he pulled away.
"What?" She asked confused.
"I want it to be special." He breathed out. Letty rolled her eyes.
"It aint that serious man. I don't need rose petals and fine linen for you to get in my pants."
"It's not about getting in your pants. I just want you to enjoy it."
"What makes you think I wont enjoy it. I'm willing aren't I?" She gestured at their current position. He snickered at her impatience and naivety.
"Baby, you've never done it before, and don't try to act like you have because I know you haven't. I just wanna make sure it's good for you too." He said sincerely.
"You've already fingered me. It can't be much of stretch."
"Let, we've just been fooling around, and keeping things light. Sex is a whole different beast to tackle."
"It changes things."
"You need to be clearer because now it just sounds like you're backing out."
"Never. I want you and I am going to have you. Sex is just more intense, and you're more likely to get attached."
"Well aren't you thoughtful."
"I'm serious. I know how this works for girls."
"Because of your long history of asshole antics?"
"You could say that." He said with a smirk as he leaned in for a slow and longing kiss.
"Well whatever man. I can't promise I'll be ready to go next time you try to pull this."
"I think I can work you up for it again." Letty just shrugged, slightly disappointed by the turn out of the events. Though she did reason it was for the best. She was not on any form of birth control and did not want to be another Latin statistic. Dom checked his watch and determined five AM was a good time to head home before he lost control and took Letty up on her offer. He was adamant about waiting, but was happy to know her level of willingness. They drove away and snuck back into their respective homes that night, falling asleep with memories of the moments they had just shared.
