Episode 8&9

 

 

Jessica could not even think of a reply as Andy’s hand moved to loosen her hair. “Your hair is so beautiful” he whispered huskily as he kissed her earlobes. She gasped. He kissed her neck and she whispered his name, not knowing if she wanted him to stop or continue.

 

He raised his eyes which were dark with desire to hers. He could see the desire also in her eyes in her quickened breathing. He swore and crushed her mouth with his. Jessica responded with equal hunger, not even pretending to be impassive.

 

Her slim hand went to his neck and held him close. Andy’s hands were everywhere at once and she became lost.

 

Something flashed through Jessica’s mind and she tried to slow Andy down.

 

“Bose” she gasped.

 

Don’t worry… I gave her the day off” before the information even registered in her mind, he was kissing her again. He stood up instantly, carrying her in his arms and marching towards the masters’ bedroom, kissing her as he went. When he got there, he set her on her feet.

 

“Today, I would see what my wife has beneath this clothe”…

 

 

 

Andy changed his position on the bed as he came awake. His eyes landed on the angelic form sleeping on the bed and his drowsiness vanished. Jessica had never looked more beautiful. She was more than he ever imagined, much more than any man would imagine. She had no clothes on and her only covering was the blanket that he had used to cover her from the night chill.

 

Ever since his father had left, he and Jessica had barely left the room. They had been too preoccupied with themselves to even notice time. Andy never even thought of work for a second. They were like a newly wedded couple on their honeymoon which was so crazy about themselves. They had laughed and laughed about the present, never for once mentioning the past or the future. Jessica was always beautiful but watching her laugh made her look downright stunning and breathtaking. He wanted to make that happiness resident in her. Of everything that happened, Andy had been thrown speechless when he discovered that he was her first.

 

 

To imagine that Jessica would give him such a priceless gift has moved him beyond reason. The realization had shaken him to his very root and he made sure that that moment was special for Jessica too. As he watched her sleep, he felt the intense desire to protect her from harm. He knew almost nothing about the woman he married.

 

He had felt that it was ok to know very little about her. ‘The less you know about a woman, the easier it makes it for you to forget her’ he had told himself. But he wanted to know Jessica. He wanted to know every single detail about her.

 

The only thing she had told him about her during this period of intimacy was the mishap that happened to her family. He had watched with horror as tears slipped down her eyes as she told him the story. It was devastating that she had to pass through so much pain at a tender age.

 

Andy watched Jessie pull up her knees like she was trying to shield herself and felt the deep urge to pull her into his arms, make her feel safe. This time, he did not resist the urge; he pulled her into his arms and was alarmed by the great delight he felt when she smuggled closer, burying her head in the fold of his shoulder. He kissed her forehead and brushed away the hair playing at her face. Andy yawned and finally went back to sleep.

 

Jessica had Andy’s hands around her when she woke up. She adjusted a bit and looked at Andy but he was still very much asleep. She smiled and touched his bare chest with her fingertips. The past day was the best day of her life. Andy had made her feel like a princess; like she was the best thing that could ever happen to any man. But…..

 

‘No… I would not think about it’ she thought. She refused to think about the fact that she had slept with her fausse husband; her contract.

 

Refused to think about the fact that she had surrendered the most precious gift she had to him also; but of all the men that Jessica had come across, none of them deserved it more than Andy, and maybe no one would ever deserve it more. But why did she do it?

 

 

Why did she surrender her virginity to someone who would become her ex – husband in a year? She sighed. Somewhere deep down, she had an answer for that question; somewhere in the innermost part of her being she knew that she would never have gotten in the family way with Andy if she did not have some feelings for him.

 

Andy cleared his throat slightly and Jessie jerked and looked at Andy who was now wide awake, staring at her. She smiled. “Good morning Drew”.

 

He was watching her now, making her nervous. “Good morning sweetheart” he pushed his fingers through her hair and smiled. He knew that she had been thinking but did not want to mention it. He did not want the talk of a contract to spoil the day. “Your skin is so beautiful” he murmured and Jessie blushed.

 

“How was your night?”

 

She smiled. “I was able to sleep at the latter part of the night”.

 

Andy chuckled. “Oh… what were you doing?” He raised his brow.

 

Jessie’s face reddened. “Should be what were ‘we’ doing”.

 

Andy laughed slightly, bent and kissed her. “Should I show you or tell you what we were doing?”

 

Jessica frowned jokingly. “I think I know what we were doing so none”. They laughed and he kissed her again, lingering this time to enjoy her sweet honeyed mouth.

 

“I am so hungry now” he remembered that they did not eat dinner.

 

“It is like I have not eaten for the past five decades” Jessica murmured and Andy laughed.

 

“You are yet to see three decades”

 

“Yeah but I surely feel hungrier than that”
