The car ride to the private was silent. I guess Aubrey must've done a number on her this morning. I looked over to her to see her gazing out the window. Her profile was beautiful. Everything about was her beautiful. I guess she saw me starring cause when I looked up she had her eyes cut at me.
" Look I'm
sorry for what Aubrey did you know how is when he's around you", I
She rolled her eyes and just keep gazing out the window. I sighed
as I turned the car into the runway. We pulled up to the jet. My men began to
pack our bags into the suitcase department. We both got out I couldn't help to
look at her eyes in that sun dress as we boarded the plane.
We both sat
apart from each other I sat on the right and she sat on the left.
take off will proceed ", the flight attendant chirped.
We both buckled up
and as the plane began to take off. I looked over to see Nic's body tense up.
Her face read worry and distress. I unbuckled myself from my seat and went to go
sit by her. " Nic are you okay?" She nodded her head sheepishly but I knew she
was lying. I unbuckled her from her seat and sat her on my lap. She immediately
melted into me.
She stuck her head into the crook of my neck. Not to soon
I hears light snores fill my ears I laughed to myself as my body began to
succumb to sleep.
"We have landed in Anguilla ", the
flight attendant voice rang to the plane.
I began to stretch but my arms
where restrained with his. I looked up to see his peaceful face. I smiled at his
sleeping state. He looked so cute.
I began absentmindedly tracing his face. I
guess he felt me touch on him because he started to stir in his sleep. He open
his big beautiful hazel and gave me a small smile.
" hey ".
uhh thanks for comforting me on the ride I don't really do planes", I said while
fiddling with my fingers. The vibrations from his laugh rattled her
" It's okay I like holding you like this.", he said while wiggling
his eyebrows. I looked down to see where still in our previous stance. I quickly
" Uh yea let's get going shall we ", he shot a blank look but
proceeded out the plane.
We took a small boat off the island to what he
called "Paradise" island.
We where greeted by 3 native island woman
dressed in grass skirts and bandeaus. They gave us coconuts filled with this
delicious smoothy flavored drink. We walked about a half a mile before we
arrived at this gorgeous loft.
" This all you ", I asked. He gave me a
kool-aid smile. I rolled my eyes as I trudged my suitcases up to the door. I
gasped out loud as I took in the black and gold scheme of the house. "Oh wow
Drake this is really beautiful". I said in awe. He nodded in
"Make yourself at home I'm bout to take a quick shower than we
can get our day started", he said while went upstairs.
I shouted okay
before going to the kitchen to fix me something to eat. I fixed myself some ice
cream and went back into the livimg room. I turned on the t.v and went straight
to watching Forensic Falls Marathon. I was right in the middle of a good part
when my bladder decided to act up. I shot up stairs not knowing where the
bathroom is. I busted into a room when I came face to face with a naked drake. I
was so caught in the moment I didn't see him move in closer.
tickled my ear. " You like what you see ?". I looked up to see his eyes weren't
those soft ones I usually see. I swallowed the wad that was stuck in my throat
and backed up to the door. " Umm can you uhh please bring back Drake ", I asked
nicely. He chuckled darkly. " I think me and Drake both gone enjoy this ", he
said while closing the door and locking it..
I gulped as he stalked towards. I scooted back until I hit a wall. I felt so small when with his tall body towering over me. His eyes pierced mines It was like he was looking inside of me. " Aubrey please you'll ruin everything if you do this ", I pleaded. He still took advances on me. He scooped me into his arms and laid me down on the bed. I sat there awaiting my fate. I didn't think this would happen again. Especially not by someone I grew to actually care for. I could feel his eyes invading my body. I cringed at the thought of him taking advantage of me.
"Onika ", that familiar voice rang in my ear. sat up to see disappointed written in his face. I crawled at the end of the bed and pulled him down by his hand. I put his head on my chest as I rocked back and forth soothing him. " Drake I think you need some time of help or guidance", he nodded his head as he caressed my back. " I know I thought I could control him but being around you brings him out more than usual", I wondered to myself why but didn't want to press the issue. " I'm sorry if I offended you in anyway I understand if you to fly back home. I looked down to his hazel eyes that I came to adore. " No I want to spend time with my bestfriend and that's what I'm going to do ", his faced from in a koolaid smile. " Okay uhhh let me go put some clothes on and we could get our day started", I blushed remembering that he was naked. I couldn't help but admire him as he sauntered of to the walk in closet.
"Drake I didn't agree to anything like this ", fear seeped my voice as I tribbled looking down at the deep blue ocean. I felt his grip on my hand tighten." Don't worry girl I got you and if you fall I'll follow I take my last breath just to save you.", I wide smile broke out on my. Our feet dangled as the air glided us higher in the sky. Drake crazy ass decided to we should go wind surfing. I don't why I agree knowing I don't like water or getting my hair wet. But it was making him happy so I was okay with it. He intertwined our fingers as the wind blew us higher in the sky.
After our little water adventure. Drake took us back to the loft to change for dinner. In the pit of my stomach I had little butterflies going off. I don't why I was so nervous I mean me and Drake have been around each other alot lately so what's making this moment different? My mind kept going back to the little incident back in the bedroom. It was still floating in my mind.
What if Aubrey showed up ?
I can't face him. It's like when I'm around him I get real shy and timid. And me being me is strange cause I don't really show this side... well the only time I acted this way was with him.....
Which I didn't want to think about that at this time. My thoughts where interrupted my soft knocks on my bathroom door.
" Nic you almost ready our reservations are at 8 and it's almost 7:3O " , Drake asked on the side of the door. I quickly put on my pink MAC lipstick and sprayed my Pink Friday perfume on me. I got up to see Drake looking dashing as ever in his Armani suit. " You look beautiful Nicki" , I blushed , " Thank you Drake you don't look to bad yourself", he popped his collar.
" Well you know how I do ", he smirked at me as we descended down the stairs. I playful hit him on shoulder. " Don't get to cocky Drake ". Just as where were about to open the door to leave. Drake told he had forgot something upstairs. I arched my eyebrow " , Really Drake you rushed me but you ass forgot something", I spat.
" Calm down Nic it'll only take me a minute wait for me in the car kay?", he said before rushing back upstairs. I sucked my teeth but did as he said and got in the car. I was outside for a good 15 minutes before his ass decided to waltz out side with a smile on his face. That is one pet peeve of mine. I hate waiting on people. I rolled my eyes as we pulled out the parking lot.
The car was long and silent. Drake was vibing with the music why I was still a little pressed on why his ass took so long. I turned down the radio to catch his attention. " So.. what took you so long to get to the car huh " , questioned him . " Uhhh don't worry about it okay" , I rolled my eyes.
" Whateva man".
I heard him take in a deep breath. " Don't be like that Nic can't we just have a good time no arguing." , he pleaded with me. I mumbled a yes while a triumphant played on his lips. We finally pulled up to this island restaurant which may I add was too cute. He took my hand as we walked up to the door. I felt goosebumps rise on my arms.
" Umm reservations under The Grahams", I shot him a look which he ignored. The lady nodded her head as she lead us to our table. " So when did we get married Drake " , I said poking at his side. He laughed nervously. " When you agreed to go on this trip with me " , he winked at me. I bent my head down trying to hide my rosey red cheeks. We finally got our table and ordered. While we where waiting my mind was still itching on what he went back inside for but I didn't press it.
Our food finally came . We had our little side conversations. When we finished Drake waved the waitress over and payed for our bill which I was kindly happy to pay half for but being the man that he his he paid for everything and left a nice reasonable tip.
As we where riding in the car I felt my self get sleep, soon my back succumbed to the welcoming blackness.
When I woke I heard waves crashes on a shore. I looked out the car window to see Drake setting up a beautiful candle lit blanket area. My face was beaming as I approached him . I took a notice that he changed his whole outfit. He was wearing only swim trunks. " I see the sleeping beauty has finally woke up " , he smiled . I nodded my as I struggled to sit down on the blanket. Just as I was about to finally sit down my whole dress split down the middle in the back. I damn near screamed bloody murder.
" Maybe I should have told you I had clothes for you to change in before you attempted that huh ?" , I cut my eyes at him . " You fucking thinking ", I spat.
He chuckled as he grabbed a black Gucci duffle and handed it to me. I looked around for any type of building but there where none. " So where am I suppose to change at ", a devilish grin landed on his face. " Well you could change right he-" .
" Not gonna happen next option", he laughed. " Or you could change in the car your pick".
I dashed to the car. When I got in I looked in the bag to see a cute but itty bitty pink swinsuit. I rolled my eyes. " This nigga forreal thinking I'm bout to wear this small ass thing around him ", I said to myself. I rummaged through the back to see a sheer shall for me to wear. I thanked God it was in there. I quickly changed and head back to him .
When I approached him I swore his eyes damn near popped out his skull. I giggled. " Umm my eyes are up here sir", he laughed nervously as he downed his drink.
" Sorry about that I uhh just can't help it sometimes your so damn beautiful Onika" , the butterflies returned on full effect when he said that. " Umm thanks Drake for this and uhh being there for me in my time of need your a really good friend" , I spoke softly.
" You know I would do anything for you Nic" , he smiled at me.
" Why?" , I asked.
" What ?".
" Why would you do anything for me I mean you barely know me but yet you saved my life countless amount of times even when I pushed you away ", he shrugged his shoulders.
I shook my head " That's not a answer Drake I wanna know why do you care so much about me ?".
It took a minute before he actually said something. " I guess with you it comes naturally to me. It's like I have to protect you no matter what. Even if it seems strange I just know I have to because I care for you more than I should a woman that's not my fiance", he said lowly.
I was in awe at what he said. I know he had feelings for me but not to the point where I was more to him than his soon to be wife.
" Drake that's really sweet but I- ", he cut me off with his hand. " I know Nic I know you don't see me that way plus you don't want to be the cause of a broken relationship", the sadness in his voice stuck out to me. He sighed heavily as he picked him self up and walked straight into the cool water. He was under there for a long time. I began to panic as I rushed into the water head first. I swam out to the spot where he was at. I looked around frantically but still no sign off him . " Drake !!!!!!" , I screamed but nothing responded but my echoes. I felt something wrap around my foot and pull me under. I flailed around trying to resurface to get some air. But the thing wouldn't let me . When I turned around to face it my heart returned to it's regular pace. It seemed like we where starring at each for minutes before his lips pressed on to mine......
