Aria stands at the back of the gym as class-goers exit, faces red, but smiles wide.
“Great class again, Aria!”
“Thanks Jill, glad you enjoyed!” she says smiling at everyone as she dries her face with a towel.
Allie and the rest of Aria’s girl gang hang out in the back waiting until the last person exits.
“Hey guys, you wanna grab a drink?” Aria says walking over to them.
“Don’t you have plans with Manhattan’s Favorite Bachelor?” Allie says holding up the Tabloid.
“Oh gosh, shut up!” Aria says swatting it away with a laugh.
“I have to say, you guys do look pretty sexy,” Yolanda says.
Aria and Layla exchange gasps.
“Look who’s joining Team Liam,” Layla says smiling as she pulls her sister into a hug.
“I’m not printing out the t-shirts just yet. But I can see how happy he makes you,” Yolanda says smiling at Aria.
“Thanks Yoyo,” Aria says smiling as she pulls her cousin into a hug.
“SO did you guys reschedule your sex date yet?” Molly asks taking a sip of her water and cutting into the sweet family bonding moment.
“No, we haven’t. But I think that’s ok. You know it shouldn’t be planned, ya know? That just puts too much pressure on it. I want it to just happen naturally.”
“So you’re really not seeing him tonight?” Layla asks surprised.
“Um, no. He had a bunch of work to do.”
“Does that guy ever take a break?” Allie asks.
“No, not often. And I can see it’s really effecting him. I feel bad, I wish there was something I could do to help him relax.”
All the ladies give her scandalous looks.
“Not that!” she says rolling her eyes. “I just mean that he works too much, he needs to just have some carefree, stupid, fun.”
“Carefree, stupid, fun…hmmm, I know just the place.” Molly says raising her eyebrows, “Ladies, let’s go get our sexy on, I have a plan.”
The girls just look around and laugh as they rush out of the gym.
Aria and her girl squad all rush around her apartment getting ready. Clothes thrown everywhere. Every mirror being occupied. Hair being curled, Makeup being done.
“I don’t know you guys, he said he’s really busy. I don’t think it’s worth asking him,” Aria says finishing her lipstick.
“That’s why you don’t ask, you just show up, looking like that, and tell him it’s time he has some real fun,” Allie says smirking.
“Ok, let’s do this,” Aria says smiling brightly as she saunters her way toward her door, being extra sassy about it as she rocks her champagne colored silky, slip dress with a scoop neck line and a low back and some gold heels, her hair in a high pony and some big gold hoop earrings.
The girls all follow as they laugh in unison.
Aria knocks on Liam’s office door, peeking her head in.
Liam looks up, a smile spreading across his tired face.
“Hey you,” he says.
“Hi,” she says walking in, as his eyes glance her over, a smirk forming on his face.
“Hi,” he says again, clearly frazzled.
“You said that already,” Aria says laughing as she sits on the edge of his desk, her tan, oiled legs right in his view.
Liam laughs, as his eyes shoot up to meet hers, he stands up.
“What are you doing here? Trying to show me, what I’ll be missing again tonight?” he asks tucking a stray piece of hair behind her ear.
“No not exactly, I came to steal you away. You work too damn hard. Come out, me and the girls have a really fun plan for tonight. I think you’ll enjoy it!” she says smiling as she takes his hands, lacing her fingers through his.
“Aria, baby, I would love to but I really am swamped here, love.” he says looking over at the pile of papers on his desk.
“Come on, baby. You stay late every night. The entire building has gone home. It’s like Zombieland out there. All of this crap will be here Monday morning. Just come on, take the weekend. Have fun with me. You deserve it. We deserve it.” She says pouting up at him.
Liam looks down at her, his eyebrow raises.
“What?” she says looking at him confused.
“Are you not wearing a bra?” he whispers in a sexy tone.
“With this dress…what do you think?” she says pushing him away as she spins to show off the back.
Liam smirks, “Well I mean you really shouldn’t be going out looking like that without me, I mean guys might get the wrong idea and think that you’re single.”
“I mean it is a possibility. It’d be better if you just came. This way I don’t have to constantly keep turning them away.”
“I mean if you think you’ll feel better having me there…” he says walking toward her.
“I would.” she says smiling as she takes his hands.
Liam smirks as she reaches up to give him a kiss.
Liam deepens the kiss, and lifts her up onto his desk as her legs wrap around him, their hands roaming around each other’s bodies.
Aria pulls away slightly, putting Liam at arm’s length, letting out a breath as Liam does the same.
“We should probably go, my friends are all waiting downstairs,” Aria says out of breath.
“Yes of course,” he says breathing heavy as she slides off the desk, their bodies gliding against each other ever so slightly.
Liam coughs nervously.
“But before we go, lose the jacket and the tie,” Aria says loosening his tie, her eyes gleaming into his. The sexual tension thick.
Liam smirks, “Yes Ma’am” he says pulling at his tie as Aria laughs and grabs his hand pulling him toward the elevators.
“Liam, you remember these are all my girls, Yolanda, Layla, Allie, and the planner of this evening, Molly.” Aria says as they all walk down the city sidewalk.
“Yes, nice to see you ladies again,” Liam says with a sweet grin.
“Hi Liam!” they all yell in unison.
“We may have pre-gamed a little while we were getting ready,” Aria whispers.
“I can see that,” he says laughing, kissing her cheek, placing a hand on her lower back as they walk toward their destination.
Aria walks into a bar with Liam’s hand in hers, and her friends close behind. The bar is not your typical bar. In fact it is colorful, and neon with strobe lights going. Music blaring loudly. A club like atmosphere but not as packed.
“Ladies and Gentleman,” Molly says with a laugh, “Welcome to my latest form of employment, Bartending at this fine establishment- Wild Wonderland,” she says holding her arms out in a very ta da like reveal.
“Girl, since when?” Allie says looking around in awe.
“I just started last weekend, and I have off tonight, so I can get a deal on drinks!”
“Yes,” Layla says with a smile as the rest of the girls look around with happy grins.
“Come on follow me, I had my coworker save me the Unicorn Booth. The furniture is literally covered in glitter. It’s amazing for pictures.”
Aria smiles as she looks over at Liam, who appears to feel very out of his element.
He smiles simply at her as she tightens her grip on his hand, leading him through the small, exclusive crowd.
Aria laughs as she and her friends dance in the cosmic colored Unicorn booth. Liam sitting off to the side, watching.
She walks over, taking his hands and pulling him up.
“Baby, come on, dance with me,” she says smiling.
“No, Aria I’m not really a dancer,” he says being pulled to his feet.
“Well that is literally what I am. I can teach you. Besides something tells me that you don’t have a problem with keeping a steady rhythm,” Aria says looking up at him, a sexy smirk forming on her lips.
Liam chokes on the drink he just sipped, as his eyes lock onto hers, “That was dirty,” he says with a cute smirk, as he laughs.
“I know,” Aria says smiling as she leans in, he sighs as their lips meet in a heated lip lock, Liam’s hand sliding to his favorite place on her backside.
Aria pulls away slightly, “Why Liam Whitmore…you are quite the butt loving guy.” she says with a little raspy giggle against his lips.
“Just yours love,” he whispers, his voice nearly a groan.
Aria’s heart flips as her body inches toward him.
Liam pulls her into a heated kiss that lasts for what feels like forever. Aria’s arms drape over his shoulders as she holds her drink in one hand and the other finds its place in his soft sandy hair.
Molly’s jaw drops as she nudges the rest of the crew to look over.
“Damn, he can really let loose when he wants to, huh?” Yolanda says her eyebrows raising.
“It’s really unfair how hot he is,” Layla says in a dreamy tone, “Aria is a goner,” she says laughing.
Aria pulls away breathlessly, as Liam looks at her confused, “I think we are gathering an audience,” she says blushing as she looks away.
Liam isn’t even phased, “I don’t even see anyone else in the room, love.” He says pulling her into another kiss.
“Mmm, quick question,” Aria says in between kisses as her eyes flutter open to meet Liam’s. “Are you totally opposed to doing it in a public restroom?” she says smirking up at him.
Liam smirks, as he takes her drink and sets his and hers on one of the glittered end tables. He grabs her hand, pulling her toward the staircase leading from the Unicorn Booth to the ground level.
Aria squeals as she turns excitedly waving bye to her friends.
They all gasp as they wave her away.
“Lucky bitch,” Layla says with a giggle.
“Cheers to Aria having countless O’s in a public restroom!” Molly says as they all raise their glasses.
“Or supply closet!” Yolanda says as they all laugh. Layla smiles proudly at her older sister, who is finally enjoying her youth.
Yolanda turns and looks up to see Dr. Greene standing behind her. In casual clothing and a drink in his hands, as two other fellow Doctors wave from the side lines.
“Dr. Greene? Hi,” Yolanda says silently praying that her boss didn’t just here her cheers-ing to the big O.
Layla’s face falls as her eyes nearly spring out of her head.
“Hi, I thought that was you,” he says with a warm, sexy smile.
“Yes, it’s me. Um Dr. Greene I’m just here with my sister Layla and our friends, Allie and Molly,” she says looking over at the ladies as they each wave.
“Nice to meet you ladies,” Dr. Greene says smiling.
“You too, a pleasure,” Layla says extending her hand quickly, he smiles and shakes it.
“I didn’t know you came here?” He says with a smile as his eyes flutter back to Yolanda.
“Oh- it’s actually our first time here, Molly here, just started working here a short while ago.”
Molly smiles, “This place has a great vibe, doesn’t it?”
“It certainly does,” he says smiling.
Layla’s eyes dart between Yolanda and Dr. Greene. The attraction between the two evident enough to anyone with a pulse.
“Well, I won’t keep you,” he says with a small smirk.
“Ok, nice running into you Dr. Greene,” She says nodding, as she waves over at her other colleagues.
“Yolanda we’ve been working together for over 2 years now, I think you can call me Matthew,” he says.
“Um, I guess it’s a form of habit,” Yolanda says with a laugh.
“Nice seeing you Yolanda, enjoy your night,” he says smirking as he turns to join his friends.
Layla, Allie and Molly stare at Yolanda who nonchalantly takes a sip of her drink.
“YOYO, what the hell was that?” Layla says her mouth dropping.
“Ok relax, he’s my boss, he was just being polite, and saying hi,” Yolanda says trying to hide the fact that her stomach is doing somersaults and her heart is fluttering.
“Yolanda, I love you. You are the smartest woman I know, but when it comes to flirting you are seriously challenged. That man wants you.” Layla says pointing toward Dr. Greene’s long since retreated figure.
“Stop it, Layla. We just work together, that’s all.”
“I mean hey…he is gorgeous, smart and kind, you could do worse girl,” Allie says smirking as she throws back a shot of tequila.
“It’s not wise to get involved with someone you work with, especially when it’s your boss” Yolanda says.
“So you’ve thought about it?” Layla asks smiling widely.
Yolanda looks away from their intense glares as she downs the rest of her drink.
“Ah that face says it all!” Molly says laughing and pointing.
“Yes see! She has thought about taking a ride on that hot boss body,” Layla says smiling and clapping.
“Ok…fine…yes…maybe I have entertained the thought, once or twice,” Yolanda says as she smiles, a natural blush creeping onto her cheeks.
“Yes girl!” Allie yells, “I’d say go for it, he’s interested. And hot as hell.” She says raising her drink in the air.
“I will drink to that,” Yolanda says as they all click their glasses and take a sip.
Matthew stands from the ground level just on the other side of the Unicorn Booth, a smile on his face. His ears listening. His co-workers join him a few moments later handing him another drink.
“Hey Matt, here ya go. Sorry we took so long, they line at the bar was endless.”
“Don’t worry I was kept entertained,” he says smirking as he takes a sip of his drink.
