Drake and Riley arrive at the bar. The room is filled with neon signs and soft up beat music, pool tables and large TV screens. Every person in the building was preoccupied in some way. Drake kept Riley close keeping his left hand firmly on the curve of her back. He wanted her to know he wan't he wasn't going anywhere. He wanted everyone else to know she was his. If only for tonight if only in front of these unminding strangers Riley Sutton would not be betrothed to Liam, the King of Cordonia, and his best friend. No, tonight they would simply be a man who likes a woman and took her to a bar for a fun time.copyright protection218PENANAmSMhYvJFlc

Drake finds a booth near the corner back of the bar. As they sit their waitress greets them.copyright protection218PENANAuNlCXUkL4D

"Two whiskys neat mam..." Drake hands the waitress back her menus not even opening them. copyright protection218PENANAWOVIi95qqz

Riley eyes widens. She loved every bit of this man in front of her. the way he places his hand on her back. The way he knows her order. The way he looks at her with those same eyes of want and frustration that she has for him.copyright protection218PENANAyMsl4qQN5c

As she sat across the table with her thoughts circling around her, she looks up and sees Drake staring at her.copyright protection218PENANA0A0mcXgxIl

"What are you thinking about?" he asks as he scratches the light stubble on his chin. copyright protection218PENANAbE96mrgsSG

Riley takes a large sip from her drink, which she was so focused on her thoughts she never noticed were in front of her.copyright protection218PENANA1rttMxUClZ

"Lets play a game!"she says changing the subject.copyright protection218PENANAPlzPHMMYjv

"Are you sure you want to play a game with me? Every time i win. Every time you cheat!"copyright protection218PENANAju9sBwURYM

Riley playfully gasps, "I never cheat!"copyright protection218PENANAy0d2uZzoCV

"You ALWAYS cheat Sutton!" Drake answers back with a chuckle lightly holding his drink.'copyright protection218PENANAorgYhYK3X4

"Well this game is a win win no losers although there is a lot of drinking involved."copyright protection218PENANAygyIJafD2e

"We are in the right place then."copyright protection218PENANAqAeECIEc7g

"The game is called Truth of Drink we ask each other questions. Each has to answer honestly. I mean brutally honest. If you do answer the question the person who asked takes a shot in order to not answer the question you have to take the shot."copyright protection218PENANA7vIotZnd3k

Drake stares in to Riley's face his dark brown eyes scanning her intently. He lens forward as he speaks.copyright protection218PENANAiCAQkj1AX3

"OK I get it the goal here is to ask the most embarrassing or challenging questions. So either you will torture me into spilling my guts out SOBER or eventually get me drunk enough where I'll do it anyway.copyright protection218PENANAOnE21gLFsS

With a giggle Sutton calls over the waitress for 8 shooters. "I told you this will be a win win!"copyright protection218PENANAWAnFYRFm5J

Drake leans back in his both "You're on Sutton  I will still bet you. I'm and open book."copyright protection218PENANAGnlheGAfgx

"Ha open like a brick wall!"copyright protection218PENANAj4VX7XdSCG

He has a playful look of aggression on his face. Riley bring her legs together underneath the table The looks he gives her, the way he calls her "Sutton" it drives her crazy. If he had no clue of her feeling for him he would by the end of tonight.copyright protection218PENANALzh9fg0UC6

The shots came in no time and the games began.copyright protection218PENANADitZzIFaYW

"OK Drake I'm first you ready?" He nods his head to answer.copyright protection218PENANAIh0De8As1d

"What was your first thought of me when you met me?"copyright protection218PENANA9MNqW2HXXj

Drake takes a shot glass a nudges it over to Riley.copyright protection218PENANA3BCxBcfgne

"Two easy Sutton, my first thought of you was "Hey the waitress, she is cute. I'm hungry I hope she brings our burgers fast."copyright protection218PENANAc5vdJKlkdm

"Wait so you think I'm cute" Riley smiles at Drake who gives her a stern look in return.copyright protection218PENANAym9mN6pv3m

"My turn since you took it easy on me. Who was your first crush?"copyright protection218PENANAO7YrEzDUQ1

A second had not passed before an answer fell from her lips.copyright protection218PENANA836EgQoCaC

"Oh Prince Harry!"copyright protection218PENANAZJZ95Mfuhi

"Wow  really?"copyright protection218PENANAR6pQx4qbYg

"Yes he has this bright red hair. I saw him on TV one day when I was younger and thought someday he will find me and make me his princess.copyright protection218PENANAc7jjMA9bck

As Riley laughs Drake smile fades. He takes his shot and wonders if she used her answer to hurt him or she really didn't realize who she was talking to.copyright protection218PENANANc4Ml9zBER

"So you do have a thing for these Royals huh?"copyright protection218PENANATvXjlvnLHm

"Oh I was at least 9 or 10 Drake that was so long ago."copyright protection218PENANA2UuldgWnr9

Riley looks at Drake who no longer looks playful but angry.copyright protection218PENANAIflM1HVAiz

"Ok my turn."copyright protection218PENANArb5pvrVTdC

Riley notices that Drake was no longer looking at her. His attentions was at the couple playing pool across the room. She knew she had to bring him back in.copyright protection218PENANAgfwKBK1x7t

"Drake how do I feel about you?"copyright protection218PENANAGPI2CJJxk1

Drake smirks he slowly takes his eyes away from the couple and looks directly into Riley's eyes. Keeping that contact he takes a shot then returns to the happy couple.copyright protection218PENANA7MddbJE6CR

"Well ok then" Riley stands from the booth and begins to walk away when she is stop by Drake's hand around her waist. He is silent for a moment only pulling her close enough to him where he could smell her vanilla scented perfume. copyright protection218PENANAJT6fEHZFf7

"It's my turn." is all he says and motions for her to sit back down. She obliges and waits for her question.copyright protection218PENANA9WXRYzBI7V

"How do you feel about Liam?" Drake has a pained look in his eyes but instead of looking away shows Riley. Maybe it was the shots mixed in with the whisky but he wanted her to see how vulnerable he was at this moment. How easily she could hurt him with just one answer.copyright protection218PENANAJfHXsTG60j

"I like Liam he is kind sweet attractive and I can see why he needs a whole ceremony to choose a wife. Any girl who meets him would fall for him even is he wasn't royal."copyright protection218PENANAXJc4YQMYw1

Drake rolls his eyes and reaches for his shot. Sutton takes the glass from his hand.copyright protection218PENANA6FY3xWD8EL

"But for some crazy reason I am not in love with him. There has been only one man that has taken sleep from me every night, who has consumed my thoughts and dreams."copyright protection218PENANA3o0LlsF2yF

Drake is frozen unsure whether to move or even breath. He locks eyes with Riley and sees that tears are beginning to form within them.copyright protection218PENANAmwozBnqnmW

"When he is near me I just want him to touch me and when he isn't around I want him to be. He frustrates me in every way. Because his touches his looks his kisses no matter how quick how fleeting they affect my entire body."copyright protection218PENANApsCnw9kaiZ

Drake opens his mouth to speak but no words come out.copyright protection218PENANAVlnV7JoMMW

"When I'm with Liam all I do is look around for him to see if he is watching us if he is hurt. But when I'm with him I think of no one I don't care who sees us."copyright protection218PENANAs8tQH4e7sA

Riley takes the shot in her hand that was meant for Drake.copyright protection218PENANA4R3HfAQAK8

It grows quiet and it is only then do they both realize that most of the patrons have left the bar. Drake motions for the waitress to brings the check. She already has it in her hand and mentions to him that there is a taxi outside if they wanted to catch it. copyright protection218PENANAzGuWBCGZps

"Sutton ask me your final question and I will answer this time" Drake looks into Riley's eyes. He wants to laugh in the irony that it is she who spilled her guts out and not him but he doesn't dare to crack a smile in front of her.copyright protection218PENANAWRBqIjuWqW

With a sigh Riley looks at the ceiling hoping it will dry her eyes. copyright protection218PENANAxvOAc4a3EV

"Do you really...did you ever really want to be with me? Or is this just some game for you? Sometimes I think you have the best restraint and sometimes I don't think its  restraint at all you just really have no intention of being with me just stringing my gullible butt along like a fool."copyright protection218PENANAcdBHacjQcJ

Drake wished he hadn't promised to answer this one he was dying for a shot. He scoots closer to Riley and very softly speaks into her ear.copyright protection218PENANAj9AUzjd3fE

"I'm going to tell you this calmly and slowly I want you to hear every word I say ok"copyright protection218PENANA0MaPnmTxqx

Riley nods, the deepness of his voice the heat he brings to her ear and neck  she could not speak.copyright protection218PENANAtCK4kUhELt

"You have captivated me Sutton. Why do you think I go to those fancy events."copyright protection218PENANAn4CYZchdfx

"Free food!" Riley blurts out jokingly.copyright protection218PENANARgk15HoYfP

"Yes that is true but to see you mostly. You have got to know that I am crazy about you. God! I want nothing more than to walk out that door with you leave everything and be with you. To kiss you"copyright protection218PENANAwJrgNMb4qW

Drake begins to kiss the base of Riley neck slightly but purposefully.copyright protection218PENANAyN1aM0n3dD

"To taste you."copyright protection218PENANAB5TV7ZDwYT

He grazes his tongue along her neck up behind her ear and begins to suck.copyright protection218PENANAluCNLqzWuZ

"Making love to you forever wouldn't be long enough."copyright protection218PENANAT2NUdzVAD9

Drake stops and sits back in the booth.copyright protection218PENANAdee7am6OS5

"But I have lived this life for 24 years and most of it has been with Liam. I don't restain myself because I dont want you. I do it for him and for us and if there will ever truly be an "us" we need to do this right."copyright protection218PENANAIdzl1kLAhf

They look at each other , exasperated their breaths sharpe and rhythmic. Their gazes are cut short by their waitress clearing their table and who reminds them again of the taxi waiting outside.copyright protection218PENANAAbin6vX16A

As they leave both, in their own ways, think about the booth behind them.. And how they would manage to keep their hands off each other on the drive back to the train.copyright protection218PENANAbkPqrZMyNF
