Short update. I kinda feel like I've been neglecting this story, so I'll probably be posting more soon. And for the comment about Ladder 49, I know that's where it's from. I had to delete your comment because it's brought back up in this chapter, and I didn't want anything given away.. lol so if you thought I was being rude I'm sorry, but I can assure you I didn't intend for it to come across that way.. :-)
By the end of the night, I'm pulling a very tipsy Kailyn out of the bar and into a cab. She protests a little, giggling and laughing with the rest of the girls, who have been having more than their fair share of drinks too, before finally sliding her hand in mine and allowing me to take her home.
She stumbles going up my front steps a little, and I can only laugh slightly before reaching out and catching her from falling down the 5 or so steps. She grabs onto my arm and leans on me while I unlock my door and lead her over to the couch, abandoning her for a little while to go retrieve some water and aspirin, knowing it will help cut back a little of the side affects I know she will be feeling tomorrow.
"Here," I say while handing her the pills and then the water before sitting down next to her.
"I don't feel bad," she says while shaking her head. "Promise," she adds when I just look at her.
"Trust me, you will in the morning," I say with a shake of my head and small chuckle before grabbing for the remote to the TV and flipping it on. She surprisingly takes the pills and drinks the glass of water without anymore fight, and then leans back on the couch, resting her head on my shoulder. I can't help but smile at the fact that this feels so normal, her here with me, as if we've known each other far longer than we have.
"Ooooh!" she shouts getting excited, practically scaring me to death. "Change it back, I like that movie!" she continues while wrapping her arms around mine, leaning closer to me.
"Ladder 49?" I question
"It's one of my favorites," she says with a huge smile, bouncing up and down like a small girl would if she found out she got tickets to a Hannah Montana concert.
"Never heard of it," I admit while shrugging my shoulders.
"Well it didn't get started too long ago," she says before going into detail and catching me up on what all we had missed. We watch the movie in silence, but then a bar scene comes on, and I watch as the woman of interest plays the same prank on one of the guys that Kailyn had earlier tonight on Max.
"So that's where you got that.." I say while shaking my head and looking down at her.
"I could never come up with something like that," she admits, blushing slightly. "I'm too nice." I give her a 'are you kidding me?' look, which makes her playfully slap me in the arm. "I am, you jerk," she laughs. "But when Max asked I couldn't help myself. Besides, I'm sure all the ladies in the bar were appreciative." She looks up at me, her cheeks blushing brighter than earlier before she continues. "And plus, I had to get all of their attention off of you."
She leans closer to me, wrapping her arms around my neck and bringing my lips down to hers with very little objection from me. She slips onto her knees, moving until she's straddling my legs. I continue to kiss her before moving to her neck, loving how she leans, giving me more room to work with. I rest my hands on her hips, pulling her toward me, but that's when she stiffens. She pulls back and looks at me, and I can only be thankful that she put a stop to things, because I didn't know if I would have been able to, even though I know tonight isn't the night for this, not when she's been drinking..
"Kris.." she starts, pulling one arm away from my neck to tuck her hair behind her ears.
"I know," I interrupt, not wanting her to feel like she needs to explain. "I know, I got carried away," I continue while leaning forward and placing a light kiss on her lips.
"No," she says while shaking her head. She sits there for a minute, avoiding my gaze. "I need to tell you something."
"Okay," I say while laughing a little, but when she looks at me I can see how serious she is, so my smile fades. "What is it?"
"Well," she says while shifting her gaze from mine again, crossing her arms protectively across her chest. "It's just.." she breaks off again, obviously not finding the right way to tell me.
"Kailyn," I say, getting quite impatient but trying not to show it. "What is it?"
"Well," she starts again, looking up at me so I can see how hard this is for her to say. "You'd be my first," she says while shrugging her shoulders, biting her bottom lip like she always does when she's nervous about something and then looking up at me, waiting for my reaction.
