After yet another wakeup call from Maxwell though this time with a cup of coffee already prepared, Jade found herself in the boutique looking through the dresses that she could choose from in order to attend the jamboree party festivities. As her hand gently trailed over the many options that were there and listening to Maxwell talking about how it was going to be a blast filled day she felt her hand hit a very soft cotton dress. Setting down her coffee she pulled it off the rack and it was perfect, a rustic looking white dress with a flower pattern on the bottom half of the dress, with spaghetti straps and a subtle but still showing cleavage at just the right depth, not slutty but confidently showing what she did have to offer, without going overboard. She walked to the dressing room and when she emerged she had the dress on paired with a pair of brown knee high cowboy looking boots. “Wow Jade that dress is like perfect for you” Maxwell said as Jade smiled to him and as she twirled around a little bit looking at her reflection in the mirror she felt good about this and about today and as Maxwell said “It’s party time!” Jade couldn’t help but laugh at her friend as they started to head out towards the festivities that were taking place out behind the manor.310Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcZEKetHqqg
On the way out towards the festivities both Maxwell and Jade overheard Hana talking with her dad and as he understood what she was saying clear as day about how she knows that Liam is not going to choose her and that she and him have already had a discussion about this, they could hear just how upset her father was and not responding well to her decision to stop going for Liam. “I know in my heart what I want, and it’s about time that I finally start to do what it is that I want with my life even if I know that it’s not what you want. I am done trying to be perfect, and I just hope that you can finally be happy with whatever it is that I decide” and as she started to walk around the corner she came face to face with Maxwell and Jade “That was bad ass Hana” Maxwell said as Hana hugged Jade and Jade told her that she was proud of her for standing up to her father.
As all three of them began walking together soon Jade felt a little tap on her shoulder from behind and as she turned she came face to face with Liam “Good Afternoon Lady Hana, Lord Maxwell…..Lady Jade, would you mind if I joined you all” and as Jade looked to him shaking her head “Yeah if you drop the royal act” she said nudging him with her arm as he smiled to her. “Only for you will I ever drop my guard” and as he smiled to her Maxwell and Hana looked to one another giving each other that look as Hana mentioned that she wanted to go try out some of the cotton candy and started to pull Maxwell with her leaving Jade to be alone with Liam. “I do hope that you are enjoying your time out here today, Jade” he said giving her a small wink as she laughed “I just got out here but I think that it’s going to be a rather fun day. Are you here for the whole day or will you be whisked away to something more important” and as she looked to him cocking her eyebrow to him he started to lean to her whispering “There are way more important things that I would rather be doing with you but sadly I will not be able to whisk you away that easily as we are in public” and as she started to close her eyes she sighed “That didn’t stop you in the apple field yesterday” and as she leaned to him a little bit he looked her right in the eyes though soon pulling back as he knew that being that close could cause some issues.
“How about a friendly game of ring toss to start the day off right?” he asked started to lead her over towards the booth with the games, the ring toss being towards the back away from most people. “That sounds like a great idea but we could make this interesting, if you are not chicken about it” and as she smiled to him and saw that glitter in his eyes he smiled to her “Hmm my lady you have no idea what you just walked into. As you should already know I don’t turn away from a challenge, just ask Drake” and as he stated that Jade looked to him and started to think about if he was talking about just in general, or if he knew that she was torn and thought this to be a competition now. She completely spaced out for a moment and didn’t snap out of it until Liam placed his hand on her shoulder “Jade are you alright?” and as she looked to him and saw that amazing smile that calmed her completely she smiled and nodded her head “Yeah I am perfect, but what is our wager” she said starting to gather the rings for Liam and herself. “I think,” he started to scratch his chin “that if I win,” as he leaned in and whispered “I think that you should have to join me tonight, for the night and during that night I shall be able to cover you with kisses, and of course a massage” and as she felt his breath on her neck it sent shivers up and down her spine causing her knees to get weak just a little bit. Though right before he pulled away she felt his soft lips kiss her cheek lasting there longer than they should “Now what do you wager” and as he stood straight and looked right to her as her cheeks flushed a tint of pink she said “Hmm I think that if I win” and she retaliated by slowly and secretively started to slide her hand up and down his side and then sliding into his jacket to be just over his shirt “It should be the same, but only allow me be the one kissing, touching, massaging you” and as she said the words ‘touching, massaging’ her hand dipped down and her fingers just lightly grazed over the hem of his pants just above his belt as two fingers slide into is pants on the back side pulling his shirt from being tucked in and started to trace the skin on his lower back. Liam took in a sharp breath feeling her fingers on him “Deal” he struggled to get out.
As the game started and they pulled away from each other Jade took the first shot landing the ring around the first bottle effortlessly. Liam then took his turn and in the same fashion was able to sink the ring to the bottle “Well look at that, so far you are the same as me” Jade stated as she started to line up her next toss though as she was trying to focus she felt Liam starting to stand behind her a little bit his
hand grazed her hip and grasping her dress a little bit starting to pull it up “Don’t miss Jade” he said starting slide his hand over the now exposed thigh that he revealed while pulling her dress up as he stood behind her blocking anything from view as even the person that was running the booth wasn’t even paying attention. She gasped feeling his hand on her thigh feeling the silk of his touch and she couldn’t control her body as she pressed back to him feeling that he was right there and he let out a grunt gripping her thigh and she closed her eyes tossing the ring though hearing the clink, clink of the ring taking its place around the neck of the bottle. “Ha! Thought that you could distract me huh” and as she started to stand tall and lean back to him she looked back to him their faces just inches apart she smiled to him “You’re up,” and as she smiled to him and started to step away from him she started to look on as he tried to compose himself as he didn’t believe that his trick didn’t work.
Jade looked on to Liam and started to realize that two could play at that game and as she saw him focusing and starting to try and line up the shot, she took advantage of the moment and started to walk up to him and as she got to be right next to him she leaned up whispering into his ear “Did I forget to mention that I am not wearing any panties?” and as he heard the words he let go of the ring tossing it to the side and not around the bottle looking right to her with his eyes wide “You, …you forgot to mention that Lady Jade” and as she looked to him starting to lean to him she smiled “Just kidding” and as she laughed a little bit he looked to her realizing that she was joking him to win “You little tease, using that to cheat huh” and as he started to look at her there was a hunger in her eyes as he started to bring her to him a little bit though instead of hugging her to him he began tickling her as she stood there. She laughed out loud causing the person that was running the stand to look over and smile “Looks like the lady won…what is the prize that you choose?” and as she looked to Liam she shook her head “I don’t need one, I already have my very own Prince” and as she smiled to him as he was looking down at her, his tall frame standing over her in a protective stance. She looked to him and then to his lips as he started to reach for her hand and then started to walk her towards the back of the tent looking back to the vendor and as they nodded to each other in an understanding. The moment that he got her behind the tent and towards the side of the manor where there was absolutely no one around it didn’t take long for him to have her pressed against the wall. Leaning down and grabbing her thighs and sinking between her legs as his lips crashed down to hers. “Mmm Liam” she moaned against his lips feeling her heart starting to race knowing that she loved the fire that was deep down inside him as she just wished that he was able to show this more often especially with her, as she did know that she had deep feelings for him and just wanted to know that he felt the same way.
Though it didn’t take long for her to feel just how badly he was wanting her even if he couldn’t do much about it just yet as he was pressing to her, his hips rotating to her pressing his manhood that was definitely showing signs of wanting something a little bit more, to her core as she kissed him back deeper and running her hands up his arms and to his hair, running her hands to the back of his neck. “Mmmm god Jade I want you so bad you know that don’t you” and as she moaned out feeling him press more to her she dug her nails into the back of his neck as she started to feel the way that he was handling her as he started to press to her more using his hips to balance her and using his hands to start to push her dress up a little bit more, starting to massage her thighs sending a ripple of passion through her. Though as she arched back to him and opened her eyes and looked to Liam, Drake’s face flashed right where Liam’s was and in an instant the guilt hit her like a truck. How could she be doing this with Liam right now? How could she knowing that she was just in this type of hold with Drake? What the hell was she thinking about Drake for knowing that she told herself that she had to give them both a fair amount? “Liam…kiss me again” and as she looked to him a fire in her eyes that was starting to fade she felt his lips on hers again kissing her deeper as his hands started to slide up a little bit more. Though as she kissed him back trying to brush out the other half of her heart she then tasted the whiskey, though she knows that Liam had not been drinking, Drake’s kisses were now etched into her mind. Jade pulled back breathless knowing that she had to stop this, stop this now before she said the wrong name and as she looked to Liam and the concern in his eyes and heard him say “I am sorry, I…I hope I didn’t push you too far” and as she saw the look in his eyes of worry she leaned in resting her forehead to his bringing her hand up to cup his cheek “No you didn’t do anything wrong, I just…I know that if I didn’t stop us this would be leading to something more….in public, which if we got caught…” and he finished her sentence “could be bad for us both” and as he looked to her with a deep understanding he said “Your right I don’t want it to be out here in the open because when that time comes I want you all to myself and not having to hold back” and as he started to smile to her and starting to set her down he leaned into her starting to press his lips to hers again “Though there is something that I do want to tell you” and as she started to look at him with a wonder in her eyes she started to wrap her arms around his waist a little bit starting to hold him there knowing that she feels bad but knowing that she had to stop before it went farther before she knew exactly who she wanted to be with.
“What, what is it that you need to tell me, well want to tell me?” she asked starting to feel her heart starting to race a little bit more in her chest as she started to look at him capturing those amazing eyes again. Liam took her hand from around his waist and started to smile to her “I…I can’t wait for coronation to be honest. I want to make things final for us Jade. I know that I shouldn’t be saying this right now but I have made up my mind and I have made my choice, and I just can’t wait for it babe” and as he started to smile to her leaning in kissing her again Jade felt her mind starting to race a little bit more. Was he saying what she thought that he was saying? Was he choosing her even though it’s not time yet? Was he hinting that he would be proposing to her? All these questions started to swirl in her mind as he was kissing her and she was kissing him back just not as deeply or passionate as she just was and it wasn’t until she heard his phone going off that she felt his lips leave hers.
“Well unfortunately this is going to have to be postponed as I am being called away yet again, but best believe that I will be hoping that I get to see you again soon. I will see you at the dinner” and as he started to look to her and saw the sadness return to her eyes he brought his hand up cupping her cheek “I know you hate when I have to leave but like I said, it won’t be like this much longer” and as he smiled to her she smiled a little bit back to him and soon felt another soft kiss to her lips before he stepped away starting to head around the manor. Jade just stood there bringing her fingers up to her lips, knowing that this is something that she knew that would be the normal. Having a few moments here and there with him before he would have to go or to want to have dinner together but then something would come up. She knew that he had a huge responsibility and she would never ever hold that against him but could she have a life where her husband would be gone all the time? Though hearing her mind categorize Liam with the word husband it felt good, it felt like it could be a possibility. As she looked around and realized that she was alone, which at that moment actually felt really good, she started to slink down to the ground sitting there on the cement walk way and pulling her knees into her chest as she looked up to the sky feeling and wishing that she could just talk to her parents but she knew that she couldn’t at least not right now. She shook her head starting to play with a loose string on the hem of her dress as she let the tears fall. Hana would be so upset that she was more than likely messing up her mascara and she knew that Ana De Luca would not be pleased to take a photo of her like that but at that moment she just didn’t care.
As time passed and her mind continued to spiral thinking about the words that Liam spoke about making his decision, and already knowing who he wanted to choose, she knew that she had to make her mind up now or just leave them both. Knowing that option might be best for them instead of breaking one of their hearts she really started to think that she should just head out but knowing that she wants to talk to Hana and or Maxwell first she started to get up from the ground though as she did it was like a wave of memories hitting her; the feel of Liam’s arms around her waist but the taste of the whiskey on Drake’s lips; the feeling of being completely safe right there in the memory as she wished she could just stay there; because in her mind she wouldn’t have to choose, but then she would be choosing to be alone knowing that she couldn’t make up her mind. Though as she opened her eyes and heard the call for dinner to be starting she started to walk through the tent again smiling to the vendor and starting to head out to look for her friends, knowing inside that she was screaming not knowing at all what to do from here.
As Jade took her time walking alone back to the other side of the manor that was closer to the entrance to the dinner she wasn’t paying too much attention until she overheard someone say her name and as she rounded the corner just a little bit she saw Penelope and Kiara standing there with Madeleine “Jade of course is coming up close but I really do believe that Liam is going to choose you Madeleine, you have everything that he needs” and as Jade heard Madeleine stifle a little giggle she started to feel a little dizzy “Don’t be silly girls, I am just as perfect as all of you, even Jade, lord knows the way that he looks at her that there is something there, but needless to say I really don’t think that she has what it takes, not only to be there for Cordonia, but do you think that she would be able to keep him happy?” and as Madeleine continued to talk to the girls Jade turned and started to walk the other way thinking to herself that if even Madeleine can tell that she might be ready how could she be good enough in her own mind for him? Though as she began to speed walk a little bit more to the back thinking about skipping the dinner all together she didn’t see a tall figure standing there as she collided with it.
“Oh my I am so sorry I didn’t see you….Tariq?” and as she regained her footing she looked right to Tariq who just smiled to her “Oh Lady Jade there is no reason that you have to apologize to me. Simple run in didn’t hurt at all” and as he smiled to her Jade immediately felt something was off with the way that he looked at her and the way that she saw his eyes scan over her face and down her as though she wouldn’t notice. She started to stand taller and started to turn a little bit “Again I am sorry I should have been looking where I was going” and as she started to turn to leave Tariq reached to her arm and turned her to him again “It’s alright really no harm done. You look stunning tonight if I may be forward.” Tariq smiled to her again with a little bit of a sinister hint to his smirk. Jade looked to him and started to feel her mind starting to race as to why he was looking to her like that “You want to know something Jade” and as he started to look at her he started to take her hands in his and turning her around in a circle “I want you to know that I have such an appreciation for you and everything that you have done since coming here….even if for Liam. I have been watching you a little bit and I have to say that you know how to make someone smile” he said as he looked right into her eyes and Jade could feel in the pit of her stomach that something was not right, this was not the Tariq that she remembered “Well I thank you deeply but I am just being me” and as she started to look at him he started to lean in kissing her cheek and as he looked right to her he said “That is the perfect version of you. Liam is a very…..very lucky man if I may say so myself” and as he smiled again to her and started to lean in again Jade turned away from him instantly “Tariq, I …I thank you so much but I really have to get going” and as she started to walk away she looked back to him and she could see him watching her leave and as she felt a cold shiver run up her back she knew that tonight she just might have to spend the night in Hana’s room.
Over the course of dinner Jade mainly kept to herself and her friends could tell. As she sat there looking down to her plate most of the time, Hana came over to talk to her but she didn’t know how to feel about the situation with Tariq and the way that he was looking at her so she just told Hana that she was tired and not feeling to well. Soon after Hana left Jade to be on her own as she was sitting at the table she soon felt a hand on her shoulder and as she looked she saw Maxwell pulling out the chair next to her and again she just explained to him that she was tired and just not that hungry and to be honest might just retire to bed early. Maxwell looked to her and said “Look Jade, I know that there are a lot of emotions running right now especially with it being so close to the coronation but I know that you are meant to be here, I know that you are strong enough to be a Queen and I know that Liam cares very much about you” and as he started to run his hand up and down her back Jade felt a tear escape from her eye, a single lone tear and as she looked to Maxwell with the pain written all over her face she nodded a little bit to him as he then stood up and told her that if she needed anything to just text him.
Shortly after Maxwell left her table, Jade got up too and started to head out to the balcony that was kind of off from the dining room and as she leaned against the railing she started to feel the tears wanting to fall again, telling herself that if she didn’t choose within the next few days, she was just going to go and that was that. She would leave Cordonia forever and leave the two men that have stolen her heart. Liam would marry one of the others, and Drake would find someone that would make him happy, they could both live without her and she knew that this was what she had to do. As she looked to the sky one more time she saw a faint star start to shine brightly and as she whispered to herself “Mom what would you say if you were here? I know that dad would be telling me to keep my chin up, but I just can’t anymore” and as she looked to the star again it began blinking brightly to her and she couldn’t help but smile a little bit. Turning to head back in she literally ran right into another hard body “Oh I am so…” and as she looked to the man in front of her she saw the charming smile of Liam smiling down to her “I saw the princess running from the ball, and I wanted to check in on her” and as he looked right to her reaching out and stroking her cheek she leaned to his touch “I am alright I promise just tired and I don’t know just not feeling to good, I might just head to bed and get an early night” and as he leaned to her he kissed her cheek “Well I do know that I owe you a free massage and some kisses, but if you are not feeling well I don’t want you to exert yourself” and as he started to lean in kissing the top of her head he offered to walk her to her room which she accepted knowing that she wanted to get any time with him that she could knowing that it was crunch time for her heart.
As they got to her door and she began to open it to walk in Liam grabbed her arm and started to bring her back to him “Jade, I want you to know how sorry I am that this is how it has to be for now. I know that it’s really different then our time together in New York, and I can’t apologize enough for it. I know you never expected this to be your life but I can promise you that it will get better. I know that my role as King will be hard, but look at my dad and Regina, still so in love after all this time and they balance it so well. Knowing how I feel for you and how I hope you feel for me, I know that we could be that in the end” and as he started to look her in the eyes she could tell that the words that he said were honest and true and the ones that she needed to hear “Oh Liam I know that I have been a pain and I am sorry if I am not grasping this life as I should, but I do know that if it is indeed us at the end, I know that we could make it work, I would try my hardest to make it work, even if that means eating dinner alone before bringing you a plate while you are at a meeting” and as she smiled to him he started to bring her into his arms hugging her to him. “We will make it work in the end” and as he brought her hand to his lips, he kissed her knuckle, “Soon my lady, it will be all over soon” and with that he leaned in just as gently to press his lips to hers in a tender loving kiss. “Sleep well my lady, I hope that you feel better and I will see you in the morning” and as he kissed her one more time she kissed him back and smiled to him as he walked away, heading into her room feeling a little bit better she headed right to the shower.
Meanwhile as Jade was in the shower she let the water drip down from her head and over her face and down her body, letting the heat hit all the right places that made her feel so much better. The heat from the water relaxing her aching muscles and the tension that was in her neck and as she wishes that she felt better to maybe go get that massage from Liam she knew that it was too late to cash in on that as she knew that she had to be up early. Once out from the shower Jade towel dried herself off and changed into her bra and panties knowing that with it being a little hot in the room and knowing that it was just her there that night she was just going to sleep in her underwear. Though as she just got her bra back on she heard a clicking noise towards the door and as she looked over she saw a figure of a man walk into her room and as he turned and she saw she screamed seeing Tariq jump back a little bit. Jade was frozen in her steps as he said “Wow Lady Jade, de-robing in my room and waiting for me is a rather forward gesture. I thought that with the way that you were earlier that you had no thoughts of me at all, I find myself to be corrected.” Though not even thinking for a moment that she was standing there exposed she looked to Tariq and explained with her eyes wide “Tariq this…this is my room, what are you doing in here” and as she looked to him and felt the gaze from his eyes stalking her like a lion praying on a poor helpless antelope she could feel the shiver race through her body as she went to turn but immediately felt his hand on her arm turning her to him.
“Oh come now Jade, you can’t deny that there is obvious feelings there. I mean why else would you be almost naked in my room just waiting for me to come in” and as he started to pull her to him tightly she was taken aback at the sudden strength he seemed to have “Let me go, this is a huge misunderstanding! Please this is not what it seems!” and as she started to try and fight him his strength seemed to enhance as his grip on her became tighter and the way that his hands were running over her was making her feel sick. “Jade you know I have always had a little thing for you ever since New York, I just had no idea that you felt the same. I thought for sure that you were pinning after Liam but this,…this is a rather nice surprise” and as he leaned in pressing his lips to hers in a rough hard kiss she was able to get a hold on his lower lip and bit down causing him to let go. “DAMNIT!” and as he let her go and she ran towards the door she screamed again as his arms went around her waist “Tariq please I don’t want this, this is not you. This is not your room!” and as she started to get scared not knowing at all what was going on in his mind but she could soon smell it, the liquor that was now right by her as he was holding her tightly to him with his arms around her waist encircling her so tightly that it actually hurt, he started to turn her to the bed. “Come on Jade, I know you feel it too, I can’t be the only one, they told me that you felt this way…so why play like you don’t?” Tariq started to turn her towards him again starting to lean in getting her lips again as she cried out against his lips “No….no Tariq no!” and as she started to feel like this was not going to end up in her favor she heard her door bust open and slam shut again and hearing that deep voice angry almost beyond recognition but she could see behind Tariq, Drake reaching to his jacket and pulling him away hard “Get the hell away from her!” he said pulling him off her and immediately pushing him to the side though as Drake turned to aide to Jade, Tariq turned Drake in a forceful turn and brought his fist back and slamming it right into Drake’s jaw causing Drake to stumble back and down to the floor immediately.
“How dare you barge in here like that, can’t you see that we are a little busy” and as Tariq looked on pissed, Drake looked up to him and Jade could see a fire in his eyes even as the blood from his lips cascaded down his chin, it literally took him about 3 seconds to get from the floor and driving all his body and weight into Tariq knocking him to the floor. They continued to wrestle on the floor them each getting good hits in as Tariq was floored with the push of alcohol and Drake was being pushed with the force of wanting to protect Jade, and as both men got back to their feet and Jade looked to Drake, the fear in her eyes as Drake grabbed Tariq by the lapels of his over coat and brought him right to his face “I suggest you get the hell out of Morgan’s room before I beat your ass so badly your mom won’t even recognize you” and as the anger in Drake’s eyes continued to shine to Tariq, Tariq looked to Jade “You…you stand by this, I thought what was going on was the start of our story. I had heard that you…you confessed feelings for me, and being nervous I had a few…but you are meaning to tell me that this ….this is not true?” and as he looked to Jade she shook her head no. “No Tariq, I don’t have feelings for you other than a friend. I don’t know where you heard it but it is not true” and as the words seem to finally hit his mind his face fell “I…I am sorry for the confusion and the trouble. I regret this ever happening, I hope that you can forgive me” and as Drake finally let him go, he attempted to reach out to touch Jade’s arm but Drake literally shoved him out of the room slamming the door shut. Though as he stood there facing the door Jade could see visibly that Drake was shaking. Though he didn’t say anything, knowing he didn’t want to scare her as he looked to the now closed door he could see that the lock was tempered with, and knowing that he would be bringing it to Bastien’s attention as soon as he could.
Jade didn’t know what to do right away but soon started to walk to him and as he stood there she started to wrap her arms around his waist, his body flinched as if being pulled out of a trance and soon he turned to face her, looking down to her and cupping her face “Thank you Drake” she said in a hushed tone though in her eyes were tears, and a fear that was running deep even with Tariq not even in the room anymore and as Drake saw the fear he pulled her right into his arms her shivering body flushed right against his. “Damnit Jade, I heard your scream as I was coming to check on you and when I opened the door and saw what I did I saw red instantly. I wanted to just beat the shit out of him right here when I saw his hands on you like that. I know that Liam would never have forgiven me if something happened to you, if I wasn’t able to stop him” and as Jade looked up to him catching his eyes with hers and seeing that worry just streaming across his eyes and his face “I wouldn’t be able to forgive myself if something would have happened, if I wouldn’t have gotten here when I did, if I” and as he went to continue she pressed her finger to his lips “You didn’t do anything wrong, you just stopped it from happening. You raced in here when no one else did. I tried to stop him but with the force he had behind what he thought was true and the liquor I couldn’t” and as she looked to him and her body continued to shake he brought her closer to him “He doesn’t know how to handle his liquor, we will try and talk to him later but right now I am just happy that you are okay…I don’t know what I would have done if I found out that happened” and as he started to look at her he leaned in and pressed his forehead to hers and as they both stood there for a moment taking deep breathes to relax his hands fell to her hips and that is when it finally clicked to him that she was standing there in just her bra and panties.
“Uh, Morgan?” he asked starting to look her in the eyes and then down to her panties and bra again and then back to her “Yeah” she said as she caught his eyes looking down and then to her again as it then clicked to her as well “Oh!” she stated as her cheeks started to be the color of a tomato “I am sorry I just..” and as she struggled to get her robe on quickly he said “It’s not like I haven’t seen you before in your bra but, I just thought…” and as he started to stammer off of what he was saying he started to scratch the back of his neck. “Are...are you going to be okay?” he asked as he started to look at her as she looked down to the ground starting to feel her own body still shivering “hmm, oh yeah I…I will be alright I mean just have to make sure to lock my door that’s all” and as she looked to him and he started to turn “When I saw his hands all over you I just….I should go before a real scandal happens if someone catches me in here” and as he started to turn to the door he winced a little bit grabbing his side by his ribs a little bit. “Drake, you’re hurt” she said starting to walk towards him a little bit and almost as if he was determined to leave she saw that he didn’t slow down or stop so she sped up her steps a little bit and got between him and the door before he could open it to leave. “I am not letting you leave until I take a look over your injuries” and as he looked to her he saw a fire in her eyes almost as if she was actually angry with him “You do know that I can simply pick you up over my shoulder and toss you onto the bed and get out again before your tiny body can even get off the bed to come after me?” he said starting to look at her as if challenging her. “Did you know that I could knee where it hurts and cause you to fall to your knees and force you to the ground, sit on your hips and pin you while I look over your injuries? If so I suggest that you just let me look you over or you may have another injury to add to the list” and as she looked to him and he stared back he could hear the anger in her voice and thought that this was definitely a new side of her and then as he looked to her he saw her expression change “It’s….it’s the least I can do for what you just did” and as he complied and took in a deep breath he agreed to letting her look over him.
She started to walk him back over to the bed “Shirt off, now” and as he looked to her he shook his head “Short and bossy, that is a dangerous combo you know that right?” Though as she looked to him she smirked “You best believe it to be true. Now like I said shirt off” and as she looked to him he began to shake his head starting to reach down a little bit to bring his shirt off and as he winced in a little bit of pain again she started to reach in helping him get his shirt up and over his head as she started to look over the ribs and the chest to the abdomen area feeling her heart starting to race a little bit seeing him shirtless again and knowing how badly she missed being close to him. Knowing that all day she kept having visions of him and it wasn’t until now when he turned into her savior did she finally get that itch of seeing him taken care of “So Doc is anything broken?” he asked as he then felt her soft fingers starting to run over his skin and as she did so she felt her breathing starting to increase as she looked to him seeing his chest rise and fall at an increased rate just as her fingers were on him. “The most that you are going to have it seems is some bruising and sore for a few days,” she stated as she started to look him in the eyes starting to run her finger tips over his ribs and then pecs “Tariq isn’t strong but with that backing of liquor he can hit harder than you think” and as he started to laugh a little bit she smiled hearing his laugh knowing that it was one of the many things about him that could keep her going.
Jade started to look down though soon enough as her smile started to fall and he could see it too “What is it” as he started to look to her and she said “I just…I can’t believe you got hurt because of me” and as the words left her mouth he instantly reached out and started to use his fingers to tilt her head to look at him “Jade…don’t you think for a moment that this is your fault because it’s not. I was hurt because of Tariq and because when I saw what I did I knew that I couldn’t just stand there and not do something. He is the one that punched me over and over again in the ribs, not you. He is the one that clocked my jaw pretty good, not you. He is the one that was trying to hurt the one that I care for more than anyone else, the one that I lo..” he started to say more but soon shut his mouth as he looked to her “He is the one that caused this not you, so get that out of your pretty little head now that you had any fault in this” and as he started to look at her starting to see the tears in her eyes he leaned in kissing her cheek “You are perfect Morgan, you didn’t hurt me” and as he started to look her right in the eyes again pressing his forehead to hers they stayed like that for a little bit longer. Though soon Jade started to pull away and headed to her mini fridge/freezer that was in the room and started to get out a face towel of hers and started to get some ice in it and walked back over to him “Which one first, your lip, or your ribs?” and as she looked to him he smirked “What about my ego?” and Jade couldn’t help but chuckle “I think that you are still alright with that” she smiled to him and started to hold the ice to his ribs a little bit choosing for him. “Thank you Jade, for tending to me” and as she smiled to him accepting his thanks she started to look down to the ground again but soon was pulled out of it as she looked to him “You know I care about you right?” she asked starting to lift her head to him and starting to try and hide the tears that were pooling in her eyes. “Yes and you know that even through everything I put you through and knowing that I shouldn’t you know that I do care about you. But you are here for Liam, and I know that you are having a hard time choosing what you want to do right?” and as he looked to her she said “My feelings for you are never going to change, and yes you are right I don’t know what to do, but my feelings for you are some of the deepest feelings that I have ever had and I am scared to how I am going to feel if I lose that” and as she looked to him a single tear fell again.
Drake looked to her “Jade, you really shouldn’t feel anything for me, you’re…you’re supposed to be here for Liam, everyone is always for Liam” and as he looked to her knowing that it killed him to say that as he knew how deep he was feeling for her and how deep he was falling for her even when he knew that she might choose Liam, he knew what was best for her. “Morgan do you really think that if we would have met somehow different then because of Liam that we would be where we are, that we would be trying to be together? If you would have been not waitressing but at a club and we just caught eyes across the way…do you really think that we would have this?” and as he looked to her she started to look him right back as her fingers started to run up and down his chest and right over where his heart is as she takes in a deep breath “Drake, that is where you try to change it, we met before I met Liam, we had that moment in New York and ever since then my feelings have never changed. My cousin Autumn thought that I was crazy that I didn’t want to give up hope that I would see you again, that we would have another chance, that you would come back for me. Though when you didn’t that’s when I met Liam, but the point is my feelings have never stopped for you and they never will. I don’t know what’s going to happen or what I am doing but I know my feelings for you are still at the highest peak that I have ever felt for someone” and as she looked to him to try and read his eyes she couldn’t.
Holding her to him a little bit with his hands back on her hips he looked at her “I know that I pushed you away, and I know that I have apologized over and over for that, I was an idiot. But do you really think that if we could get away with it that you, you would be happy with me? That you would give up everything that you could have to be with a commoner like me?” and as she looked to him and reached up cupping his cheek “Drake, I didn’t fall for your flashy car, your huge mansion, your ties to royalty, because when I fell for you and felt something that night, you didn’t have those things, and I didn’t know about Liam and that you were best friends with a prince. So if I fell for you then how could I not still feel the same now? Yes you would still be grumpy and I would have to push you around a little bit but if you hadn’t pushed me away I know that we would be together now, just because I know that’s how much I care for you. I never stopped,” she said as she started to feel her heart starting to race as he started to bring her hands to his chest “Drake there still could be a chance and you know it” and as she looked to him and felt him holding her hands to his chest she felt and saw him starting to lean in though stopping feeling angry at himself as he softly pushed her back just a little bit and got up heading to the door “What am I doing? You shouldn’t be feeling this way about me. You can’t” and as he started to get to the door again she was right behind him starting to wrap her arms around his body and resting her head on his back.
Through tears that were now hitting his flesh she said “Aren’t you tired of fighting it? The up, down, side to side and the lies that you tell yourself, and tired of being careful and putting what you want on the back burner?” and as she held him she felt him take a deep breath before whispering “More than you know Morgan” and as she got him to start to turn around to face her she said “Then don’t be that man anymore, don’t hold back anymore” and as she started to finally get to look at him he could start to see the pained expression in her eyes knowing that he hated seeing her so upset. In just one brisk moment he had her in his arms turning her and pressing her tiny body right into the wood of the door as she gasped out feeling his body against hers again, his hips pressing against her enough to hold her there as his hands went up into her hair and tugging her head back a little bit to expose her neck, the shoulder of her robe sliding down her slender arm exposing her skin there as he leaned in capturing it with his lips and kissing up her neck and to her lips. Feeling the way that she wrapped her legs around him to hold him to her was driving him almost insane as his lips crashed to hers kissing her with such an intense passion and determination as her hands and nails were running over his bare back. With a deep groan and a pained ache now spreading through him he started to pull away from her setting her back down to the floor as she was now breathing heavy and as he kissed her gently he said “I have to go before we do something that I know you will regret, especially if you end up choosing Liam” and as he started to turn away from her to grab his shirt she again hugged him from behind starting to press kisses to his back and to a few of the little bruises that were indeed starting to show along the side of his ribs “I would never, ever regret any time that I have with you Drake” she said against his back her breath a calming cool over his hot body. Though as he started to turn and started to look into her eyes again he could see the want in her eyes and he knew that his were showing it too but trying to hide it with the guilt that he was feeling as well though not masking it well as Jade looked to him right in the eyes and said “You can’t look me in the eyes and tell me that you would regret the times that we have had together, can you?” and as she looked to him almost in a challenging way he groaned out closing his eyes and as he started to go to turn from her again the words “Fuck it!” came from his lips as he leaned in capturing hers with his kissing her deeply with a desire that burned up from his core though after a moment both were breathless as he said “I would never regret it if anything were to ever happen between us and you damn well know that I wouldn’t” his voice was deep and low coming from his throat as he soon pressed her to the door again.
His kisses were driving her crazy with a want that burned like a fire from her core all the way to the top of her head feeling the way that his want for her was intensifying in his kisses, in his touch, in the way that he handled her and the way that his body felt against hers as he pinned her again to the door with just his body. Her head was spinning with the deep ache that was spreading through her body, something that she had never had before and something that she wanted from him. She let out a moan feeling him kissing her neck and gently sucking right where her heart beat could be felt through her skin on his lips. Her hands instantly went up into his hair holding him there feeling the way that he was kissing her neck and lightly sucking that it was driving her body to the brink of breaking “Drake!” she moaned out as she let her right hand start to fall between their bodies trailing over the hardness of his abs tracing each one before her hand started to reach where their bodies met and his manhood was rock hard with how close they were together and she cupped him over his pants starting to slowly rub the growing bulge in his jeans. His moan vibrated against her neck as he pushed his hips grinding to her hand to let her feel all of what she was doing to him. His voice staggered and deep whispered “I would take you over and over again and never ever regret making you feel pleasure inside and out” as he pressed to her hand again moaning out deeply as he captured her eyes “Would you regret me?” and as she looked to him she answered with one simple word that she knew was the truth “No” and hearing that word vibrate through his ears he couldn’t take it anymore. He pulled her away from the door and started to walk her over to the bed, holding her right to his body was so simple to him as she was so tiny compared to him that it didn’t take much effort.
Once to the bed, Drake started to lay her back his body falling perfectly between her legs as she never let go of him with her hands or legs that were still wrapped around his waist. Her heart soared and ached for him all at the same time. It was reaching out to his heart as she knew that he was half of her heart and knew that if anything happened between them right now that she would never regret it. As he leaned in kissing her deeply he started to reach down to the tie of her robe starting to untie it though pulling away from her as he started to open the white terrycloth that was encircling her tiny body. Once the material was pulled away and she lay there beneath him in a blue bra that hugged her chest perfectly and the matching blue panties that defined her curves just right, he smirked to her “Damn Morgan, if I was any older you might just give me a heart attack” and as he smiled down to her he leaned in his eyes never leaving hers as his lips started to kiss along the hem of her panties her skin feeling like silk on his lips and smelling of Country Apple, a sweet bliss that he could learn to love. As his lips continued the slow assault on her skin she felt her body arching to his lips the more that he did what he was doing. Soon she was not able to take it anymore as she reached down and ran her hand through his hair and signaling him to come back up but instead of just sliding up her he teasingly kissed from just on her pubic bone over her panties up a line kissing around her belly button and up to the outlining of her bra and then to the exposed skin of her breast that was just above the top of the bra and then up her chest to her neck and to her lips, kissing her tenderly.
His eyes looked to her and heard her moan against his lips “Tell me what you want baby” and as those words escaped his lips she gasped as she kissed him again and without saying a word she nodded to him as she ran her hand down his bare back and to over the hump of his butt giving it a little squeeze causing him to push down to her a little bit more. “I think I get the hint” and as he started to move against her in a tender grinding movement, pressing his hard bulge against the thin material of her panties she arched up to meet him causing their bodies to press hard together. “I want you, I have always wanted you” and as she looked to him she couldn’t help the fire that was starting to boil over and she slid her hand down his body and sliding to his pants that were hanging snug on his hips and used just that hand to get his belt open and then unbuttoning his jeans working his zipper down and to her surprise found very thin material cutting her off from his manhood. She reached down a little bit more starting to run her hand over his hard erection that was not hiding how turned on he was at all. “Damn Jade that …damn that feels so good” and as his breathing started to intensify as she started to stroke him a little bit more as she leaned in kissing his lips, his cheek, his neck, and to his bare shoulder she loved feeling the way that his body was responding and the way that she could feel him twitch in her hand. “I want to make you feel good Drake” and as she said that she brought her hand out of his pants causing him to gasp a little sharp breath. “Wh…what did I do?” he asked starting to look worried that he said or did something wrong “You didn’t do anything at all, I just wanted to give you a hand” and as she said this started to get him to stand up the best that she could and had him stand there at the edge of the bed and as she sat up on the edge, it was perfect height for what she wanted to do. As her eyes trailed from where his pants were open up to his eyes she smiled to him starting to push his pants down a little bit more and just as she started to cup her hand over him and leaning in kissing the hem of his boxer briefs there was a knock at the door. “Are you kidding me?” Drake stated as Jade’s face turned a light pink.
Soon they heard Maxwell talking through the door that he needed to talk to her about something for the upcoming days. Drake started to get his pants up and as he leaned in to her he said “One day I am going to get you alone…for longer than a few moments” and as he kissed her he started to head to the bathroom to hide from Maxwell. Though as Jade got her robe back on and headed to the door she opened it and immediately Maxwell started to head into the room talking away about what was coming up soon before the coronation and things that she should have to expect and as she looked over she saw Drake’s shirt laying there on the floor she quickly grabbed it and hid it in her robe. Though as Maxwell continued to talk and talk and talk the anticipation that was racing through her with Drake was now slipping away. Though as Maxwell left he mentioned that she should expect a call from Bertrand soon and that he would be back in a few hours to get her for the morning, and as he left Jade then leaned back against the door sighing out loud and as she looked to the door to the bathroom she saw Drake walking out and started to lean against the frame of the doorway as he smirked to her “Looks like this will have to be continued huh” and as he started to walk to her she shook her head and said “Well you could stay…if you wanted too” and as she looked up to him as he started to get his beater on and his blue shirt that he tugged out of her robe he smiled to her and said “I don’t want to rush anything with you Morgan, when the time comes again that this will happen….it will be even better. I promise you that” and as she smiled to him and held out her pinky he shook his head and latched his pinky with hers as they both laughed a little bit. As Jade agreed that they would wait again for another moment she started to lean to him and he met her half way kissing her tenderly. “I will see you again soon, my lady” and as he smiled to her lips and headed out, Jade started to smile to herself feeling so happy and actually content for the first time in a while. She then went to bed and slept for the next few hours pretty soundly even with everything that had happened, the smile never left her face that night.
