Aria sways to the music as she practices her routine in the bright light of the rehearsal space. The mirrors reflecting her every move.
Her mind not over thinking it. Her body instinctively knowing which move is next. Each movement connected to the beat like a note to a key. Like a moth to a flame. Like a paintbrush to a canvas. Her mind filling with her recent intimate moments with Liam. Embracing her sexual and feminine sides with each swirl of her lips, body roll and so on. She closes her eyes as she moves, her heart feeling the music.
After so many years of hard work, and dreaming of this opportunity, Aria felt more ready than ever.
She finishes her routine, her final stance strong. Beads of sweat pouring down her back and chest. Her breathing heavy, her spirits lifted. In just a few short days, her dream may just become a reality.
Aria smiles to herself.
Breaking her out of her sweet, dreamy state, Allie comes rushing in, her blonde hair bouncing upon her shoulders, as she holds her fedora like hat in place, her cheeks flushed as she fights to catch her breath.
“Hey Al! What’s up?” Aria says with a slight laugh as she takes a sip of water.
“What’s up? Don’t what’s up me! I just ran all the way over here! How do you say something like “I think I’m engaged,” and then just hang up on a girl? You don’t! That’s how. You just don’t do that!” Allie says bending over, “Ah leg cramp, leg cramp,” she says rubbing her leg.
“I’m sorry, I had to rehearse.” Aria says smiling.
“Yea well still…you can’t just drop that bomb on me without an explanation.”
“I’m sorry, here sit down,” she says gesturing to the side bench at the front of the room. Aria smiles and hands Allie her water bottle.
Taking a sip, and a seat, Allie starts to return back to the present moment, “So…explain, now please.” She says waiting.
“Ok so look, it’s all a little murky.”
“The proposal.” Aria says wincing at her anxious, frazzled friend.
“What does that mean?” Allie says her brow furrowing.
“Well see he kind of asked while we were in the middle of ya know….” Aria says her eyes widening.
“Wait he asked you during sex?” Allie says confused. “That’s so Un-Liam of him.”
“Well I mean it was just really emotional for both of us. And I think we were just both right there, feeling all sorts of connected and he asked and I said yes. I think. But I feel like…I don’t know- does it count? I mean we haven’t spoken about it sense-”
“Wow…I mean normally I would say things like that don’t count for regular guys, but Liam seems a bit different. I’m not exactly sure what it means in his case. Why don’t you just ask him?”
“Because I feel like it will ruin things. Trying to dissect things always gets me into trouble!” Aria says in a whiney huff.
“Aria you can’t walk around not knowing if you are engaged or not, just talk to him. That’s how a good relationship grows. Communication. Learn it, live it, love it.”
“Ugh, why do you always have to be so smart….and right?” Aria says in mock frustration.
“Because I’m fabulous! Now let’s get you outta here so you can talk to Liam. You wanna share a cab?”
“Yea definitely,” Aria says, picking up her dance bag.
Allie loops an arm around her shoulders, “So…how’s the routine coming….”
“Really great, it’s done. I’m ready.” She says with a big smile.
“That’s fantastic, I’m so proud of you, so excited for you!” Allie exclaims as she and Aria walk into the city hustle, both their hands flying up in the air to hail a cab.
Dr. Greene’s car comes to a halt in front of Yolanda’s apartment.
“Yup, this is me,” she says with a smile. “Thanks so much for the ride, Dr. Greene, I really appreciate it,” she says turning to open the car door.
“Yolanda, we’ve worked together for quite a while, don’t you think it’s time you called me Matthew?”
“Um…oh well, I guess I never really thought about it.”
Lies, she thinks. There were many nights where Yolanda Lenz had dreamt of calling Dr. Greene by his first name. None that she would ever admit to.
“I see, well if you wanted to, you could. I just figured we don’t always have to be so formal.”
Yolanda looks at him as his eyes flicker a slight gleam, a small nervous smirk creeps onto his face.
“I should get inside, my sister and cousin are probably waiting up for me, thanks again” she says opening the door and rushing out.
Dr. Greene looks after her longingly as he lets out a sigh.
Aria walks into Liam’s apartment, to find the lights dimmed, and candles lit everywhere.
Her heart immediately jumps to her throat. Liam walks into the living area dressed in a casual pair of black slacks and a nice open collared black dress shirt.
“Hey love,” he greets her with a 10 watt smile.
“Hi,” she smiles while he takes her hands in his, placing a kiss on her cheek.
“I was going to come pick you up,” he says pouting.
“Oh well I ran into Allie so we just shared a cab, no big deal,” she says with a smile, “What’s with all this?” she asks looking around.
“Well I figured you and I had plans to pick up where we left off, so I thought why not set the mood,” he says with a sexy smirk.
“Oh I like the way you think,” she says as she reaches up and goes to kiss him, she halts.
“What?” he asks confused yet disappointed.
“I’m disgustingly sweaty, let me go shower first,” she says making a face.
“Honestly, I think you look sexy as hell, you always do,” he smirks pulling her to him as his lips find hers.
“Hmm, well you know, I know you look all freshly cleaned already, but say we got a little dirty, maybe you’d need another shower?” Aria says looking up at him with a sexy, sly smirk.
“Hmm, I thought you’d never ask,” he says his voice showcasing a hint of a growl, as he scoops her up in his arms. Aria squeals at his un-expectant nature as he rushes them to his bathroom.
Aria let’s out a loud moan, as she moves with Liam, her hands in his hair.
Liam groans, his hand leaving prints in the steam on the glass shower door as his other holds Aria up onto him. Quickening movements and screams of passion and pleasure.
Aria looks up at him, her heart turning to mush. “My god, where have you been, my whole life?” she sighs cupping his face, as he smiles, she pulls him in and kisses him feverishly. Her hands gliding across his chest as the beads of water and sweat trail down the lines of his abs.
Liam gasps against her lips, his body aching towards hers.
“I want you, now,” she whispers.
“Again?” he says his muscles tensing up trying to stay in control of his desire for her.
“Yes,” she says biting her lip as she stares at him. “You know you don’t always have to be such a gentleman,” she says coyly as her hands slide over his back, pushing him closer to her.
“God, Aria, you leave me breathless,” he says lifting her up again.
Aria throws on one of Liam’s thin robes, as she ties it loosely in front of her. Liam, steps out of the shower, wrapping a towel around his waist.
Aria grabs a brush and begins to brush her hair out, as she wipes her hand across the mirror getting rid of the steam.
Liam comes up behind her, wrapping his arms around her waist. “That was one steamy shower,” he whispers in her ear.
Aria laughs, as he starts to kiss her neck, she let’s out a moan, as her hands reach up and slide around his neck, causing her robe to shift. Liam notices, with a playful smirk on his lips, he reaches and unties it, as it falls open.
Aria inhales sharply as a breeze glides across her body. Liam’s hands reach for her, sliding down the length of her torso.
Aria’s body falls against his, as she gasps.
“Don’t tease me, if you aren’t ready for the next round,” she laughs against his lips.
Liam laughs, “You my love, have no idea what you’ve gotten yourself into,” he says smirking.
“Oh really…do tell?”
“I’d rather show you,” he says his eyes flickering that usual heat as he stares at her reflection in the mirror counter.
Aria spins around quickly, “Show me now,” she says.
“With pleasure, my love,” he says smirking as he hikes her up onto the sink countertop.
Aria loosens his towel as they fall into each other once again.
*** A few hours later-
Aria and Liam gasp as they both fall onto a side of the couch.
“Is it me, or does that just get better each time we do it?” Liam says out of breath. Sweat covering his chest.
“No yea it definitely does,” Aria says running her hand through her now sweaty hair, trying to catch her breath.
“I think I have an idea…” Liam says smirking at her.
“What’s that?” she says climbing on top of him, so that she is straddling his waist. A small throw blanket tossed across them.
“Why don’t we do a bit of a christening of my apartment,” he says.
“I’d say, bathroom check, bedroom check, living room check…we’re off to a great start.” She says laughing as Liam laughs his hands sliding up the back of his oversized t-shirt she had draped on at some point.
“Kitchen?” he says raising his eyebrows.
“Oh absolutely,” Aria says as she pulls him by the waist band of his boxers toward that direction. “Where do you want me?” Aria says in sexy tone as she does a little cha cha step.
Liam laughs, “Everywhere, love, I want you in every inch of this apartment.” He says backing her toward a corner.
Aria’s heart flips, “Yes, please,” she smiles brightly. As he lifts her up onto the counter top, his lips finding hers in urgency, he lifts the shirt off her body.
Aria hangs her head over the bottom of the bed her hands tussled in her hair, as she lets out a scream of pleasure.
Liam follows as he falls beside her, clearly exhausted.
“I think we just made up for all those times we weren’t having sex,” Aria says laughing as her chest heaves up and down, a sweet pink flush creeping upon her cheeks.
“Are you blushing, love? Liam says smiling as he covers her up with a blanket so she doesn’t catch a chill.
“Yes! I just. I feel so…”
“What?” he says his eyes turning to pure blue pools of romance, as his hand reaches up and tucks a strand of hair behind her ear.
“I don’t know. It’s hard to explain. I just feel so much for you. It’s almost like it’s more than love.” She says looking up at him.
Liam’s eyes start to water, as she pouts, pulling him by his chin, into a sweet kiss.
Liam pulls away to stare into her eyes, “Aria, I know exactly what you mean. I felt that way the minute we met. And this whole time, I’ve been trying to make sense of it or justify us for moving so quickly.”
“I love you. I do. But sometimes I worry that we’re both so attracted to each other that what if this is all just lust. What if it fades? How can we be sure it won’t?”
“Because Aria, my love, I have never felt like this about anyone. Lust is easy. You can lust over anyone, for anything. But what we have, God how you feel in my arms, that’s so much more.”
“You know last night when we were together for the first time, you kind of asked me something and I-” she says nervously as she looks away.
“I was wondering if that was ever going to come up.” he says with a sweet chuckle.
“So you do remember?” Aria asks
“Of course I do,” he says placing a kiss on her lips as he cups her face.
“So, was that just a sex casualty? Or…”
“Well if you’re asking me if I meant it, then yes I did. Did you mean it when you said yes, or was that just you enjoying yourself?” he says with a sexy smirk.
“Both.” She says with a wince, “Is that ok?”
“Of course it’s ok. Did I get caught up in you and your body and the way that you make me feel, yes. Absolutely. But in that moment it wasn’t just about good sex for me, it was about wanting you and I to be forever. I meant it when I asked it. But in hindsight, I’m thinking it wasn’t the most romantic proposal. It’s not exactly a proposal story you can tell people.” He says with a small laugh.
“Right,” Aria says with a laugh, “I do however disagree with you, I think it was an incredibly romantic moment. It was beautiful, and intense and made me feel things I didn’t know I could feel.”
Liam smiles as if his heart is turning to mush. He reaches over and kisses her passionately.
“I love you so much, and if I’m being honest this is all happening quicker than I was ready for.”
Liam nods in understanding, but Aria could see the flash of disappointment in his eyes.
“I’m not saying no. I’m just saying maybe not right now. You know there are so many things we are still learning about each other.”
“No I get it. I completely understand. I don’t want to scare you away. It just kind of happened in the moment and I couldn’t help it. I love you so much. But I also didn’t want to bring it up and cause you any stress right before your showcase.”
“You are so wonderful,” Aria says running her hand through his hair.
“Mmm, so are you my love,” he says leaning in and kissing her.
Aria deepens the kiss.
“Mmm, I have to go,” Aria says pulling away from him.
“Hmm, no stay!” he says reaching for her as he pulls her on top of him.
“I can’t, I’m sorry. I have some stuff to get ready before the showcase,” she says straddling him as she intertwines her fingers with his.
“Say no more, your showcase comes first,” he says kissing her cheek as he lets her hands free.
“I mean, you know that I wish I could stay though right, it’s just that all my stuff is there and you know…”
“It’s ok love, I get it. It’s just too bad, all your stuff wasn’t here,” he says with a little chuckle. As their eyes lock.
Liam sits up as he just realizes what he said, Aria’s eyes widen with intrigue, as she slides off his lap.
“I um, couldn’t ask you to…I mean it’d be too soon….right?” he says slowly and unsurely, trying to feel her out.
“Absolutely too soon. I mean we would be crazy to do that…” Aria says her voice trailing off.
“Right of course,” he says starting to get dressed.
Aria shrugs on her clothes too.
“I should really get going,” she says frazzled as she grabs her dance bag and purse. “I will call you tomorrow,” she says placing a quick peck on his lips because anything else would get them into trouble.
“Bye, love” he says with an awkward wave as she rushes out of his bedroom holding her shoes in her hand.
Liam sighs as he covers his face, in frustration, “What did you just do?” he says scolding himself. He starts to rush after her, as Aria rushes back through the apartment door.
“Liam” “Aria” they both say in unison.
“I’m sorry, love. I’m not trying to pressure you. God I just can’t seem to keep my mouth shut.”
“Liam. Is it weird that I don’t wanna leave? Like the actual thought of not having you next to me in bed tonight is literally breaking my heart. And I know that’s not normal, but we’re not normal. Nothing has been normal about our relationship. So really why should be start trying to be normal now?” she says with a shrug.
“Are you saying what I think your saying? Are you saying yes?” he says holding his breath in.
“If you are asking me to move in with you…than yes, I’m saying yes.”
“Oh my god, Aria,” he says breathlessly, as he rushes to wrap her in his arms, placing a kiss on her lips.
Aria laughs as he swings her around.
“I love you, and I never wanted you to leave either,” he says with a big grin.
“Well now I won’t have to,” she says shrugging.
“You’re really gonna move in?” he asks his eyes watering again.
“If you’ll have me?” she says shrugging as she places a hand gently on his cheek.
“Always, always my love,” he says pulling her into a passionate kiss, as he walks her toward his bedroom.
Aria stops them, “You know where we haven’t done it yet?” she says her voice a whisper.
Liam’s eyebrows raise, “the balcony?” he asks confused.
“Ding Ding Ding,” she says with a smile.
“Aria…babe…really…out in the open like that?” he says with a smirk.
“Liam Whitmore, you are way less conservative than everyone thinks…wayyyyy, less,” she says sliding her hands down his chest. Liam growls, as he lifts her up and walks them toward the balcony doors. Aria let’s out a laugh.
“I’m sorry… what did you just say?” Allie says sitting across from her best friend as they sip lattes in their favorite coffee shop.
Aria winces. Out of all people who could understand the power of being in love, she would think Allie would get it.
“You think I’m crazy?” Aria asks her eyebrows raising, expectantly.
“I do. I mean it’s all very quick. But you look so happy. Are you happy?”
“I am. Happier than I’ve ever been. I just…I um, I just keep waiting for something to ruin it. Like he’s just too good to be true.”
“Ah, well don’t go down that road girl. You’ve been there before. Do you want the universe to prove you right?” Allie asks with a slick tilt of her head.
“Ok in all fairness, Liam just needed a little push in the right direction the first time. I won’t hold him wanting to keep his family together, against him. He really is a good man, and he loves me.”
“As long as you’re happy?” Allie says
“Ok then, I support that,” Allie says with a smile as she raises her coffee up in a cheers to Aria.
“Thank you, because I really need you to help me figure out how the hell I’m going to tell Yolanda and Layla.”
“Oh you’re on your own there,” Allie says with a smirk and a wink.
Aria laughs as she rolls her eyes.
Yolanda walks into the kitchen, a big yawn on her lips. As Layla sits at the kitchen nook, studying for her criminal justice exam and sipping on some tea.
Aria places a plate of food in front of her as Layla smiles her thanks, still absorbed in her books and scribbling down notes.
“Good morning sleepy head. You must have hand a busy few days, I feel like you never sleep this late?” Aria says.
“Yea. It’s been crazy at the hospital lately.” She says as she scans the kitchen countertops in awe. “This is some spread,” Yolanda says. Aria set out plates of mini muffins, pancakes, bacon, eggs, fresh fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice.
“Yea I just figured I’d do something nice for my two favorite roommates,” Aria says with a smile.
“Hmm well that’s sweet of you, Thank you” Yolanda says as Aria hands her a plate with everything on it.
Aria makes her own plate and joins her cousins.
Aria watches as Yolanda and Layla take their last few bites of breakfast. Fists resting under her chin, waiting for her moment to break the news.
Yolanda notices her direct focus on them, “What’s up?” she asks.
“Yea, you look like you have something you’re dying to say?” Layla says suddenly catching on and looking up from her notes.
“Ok, so there is something that I have to tell you both…” she says her voice trailing off as she tries to find the perfect words.
She and her cousins have grown so close in a matter of a few years. They are the only family she has left. As much as she loves Liam and wants to start this new chapter with him, a part of her can’t help but mourn the ending of an incredible chapter with two of her favorite girls.
“Are you pregnant?” Layla blurts out. Yolanda’s eyes widen as they dart from Layla back to Aria.
“No!” Aria says taken aback by her sudden accusation and commentary on her possible lack of responsible action. She and Liam are always careful.
“Oh thank god,” Yolanda says clutching her chest, “I mean look obviously if you were, we would support you and we would have made it work, but this apartment is small.” She says with a laugh.
“Um…actually it’s about to get a little bigger,” Aria says fidgeting with her hands awkwardly.
Yolanda and Layla exchange glances.
“Wait…are you trying to tell us that you’re moving out?” Layla asks shocked.
“Yes, and in with Liam.” Aria says cautiously her eyes trying to get a read on them.
“That’s insane!” Layla says as she stands up angrily.
“I know that this is all happening really quick. And I am so sorry to spring this on you. But I really want this. Ok? Liam and I are in love and I’m really happy. I just can’t explain it, I know this is right. I really think this is it for me. I mean we’ve even spoken about getting married in the future,” she says cleaning up the actual story a bit for her family’s sake.
“You don’t even know him that long, and here you are talking about love, and marriage and moving in with him?” Layla says judgmentally.
“Layla like I said I know it’s quick, and I’m sorry but I want this. I hope you can find some way to be supportive.”
Layla crosses her arms and huffs, “I can’t believe you.”
“That’s not fair Lay. You and all the girls were constantly telling me to give Liam a chance and have sex and enjoy myself and now that I am…”
“Yea enjoy yourself, have a fling, don’t suddenly jump into moving in and marrying the guy!” Layla says.
“I said we’ve spoken about it. I’m not marrying him tomorrow,” Aria says rolling her eyes.
“Oh please, he’s probably already proposed,” Layla says.
Aria winces and looks away.
“He has hasn’t he? Oh my god, what were you just never gonna tell us?” she says getting more worked up.
Aria then realizes Yolanda hasn’t said a word. In fact it would have been easier to predict that she would be the one giving Aria hell. But no, she’s just standing there looking off into space.
“Yolanda…what do you think?” Aria asks, her nerves building in the pit of her stomach.
Yolanda’s eyes float toward her, calmly, coolly and collectively she answers, “If this is what you want to do, then I support you.”
Aria’s jaw drops and so does Layla’s.
“What? Since when are you this cool about things? I would swear you would be having my exact reaction,” Layla says in protest.
“Honestly same here,” Aria says, confused as ever.
“Look, do I 100% agree with your choice? No. But I have seen how happy you’ve been with Liam. I think he’s good for you. And you deserve to be with someone who doesn’t fear his feelings. We all deserve that.” Yolanda says looking down at her nearly empty plate as she pushes around a few muffin crumbs with her finger.
“Oh I get it…so this has more to do with you projecting your personal regrets of not being honest with Dr. Hottie onto Aria and her relationship with Liam? You do know they are not the same thing right?” Layla asks obviously annoyed.
Aria looks at Layla and then at Yolanda, “Is that true Yoyo? Is that what you’re doing?”
“I’m not trying to project. I just understand what you’re going through. Having all these unexplainable feelings that you don’t know what to do with and being afraid to act on them, or worse not act on them. I just wish I was that brave,” Yolanda says getting up and clearing her dish.
“Yolanda you are incredibly brave. You’re a nurse! Why are you always selling yourself so short?” Aria says softly.
“Yes, I’m a nurse. When it comes to medical cases I’m golden, when it comes to love. I cower in fear of feeling something real. But like I said this is not about me,” she says turning back toward her cousin, “I am happy for you and Liam, I want this to work out for you, honest. And by some chance if it doesn’t, which I hope is not the case, you know you are always welcome here. This will always be your home.”
Layla wipes away a fallen tear, “Damn it, Yoyo, you had to just go and make me cry!”
“Ugh, me too,” Aria fans herself, wiping at her own tears, “I love you guys,” Aria says waving them both over, “Group hug.” She says as they all hold onto each other for what seems like forever.
Aria lays on her bed in a thin silk, mauve lingerie gown. Twisting her damp hair around her finger, phone to her ear waiting.
“Hello?” Liam’s voice sounds, instantly making her heart flutter.
“Hey you,” she says her smile widening.
“Hey gorgeous…so how’d it go with your cousins? Did you tell them yet?” he asks a smile of his own creeping onto his lips.
“And?” he says trying to contain himself.
“They were surprisingly supportive. Layla was a little angry at first but she came around.”
“Layla, that’s your younger cousin right? The law student?” he asks confused.
“Yea. I’m guessing from your knowledge of Yolanda you thought she’d be the one to freak out right?”
“Well…yea, I’m sorry, love.” He says sheepishly.
“No it’s ok, honestly we all felt the same way when we spoke about it. Yolanda is turning over a new leave. She’s really happy for us.”
“Well that’s amazing. I’m so glad, love.”
“So…what are you doing?” she asks her eyes reflecting a certain sexy look.
“Nothing much, just watching a movie,” he says lying as he sits in front of his half painted canvas in his hidden art corner, brush in hand.
“Hmm. I miss you. I wish we were watching a movie together right now.”
“If you were here right now Love, we wouldn’t be watching a movie,” he says his voice husky, a smirk on his lips.
Aria smirks, knowing she’s got him right where she wants him, “Really? What would we be doing?”
Liam chuckles, “you know exactly what we’d be doing.”
“What room would we be gracing our presence with this time?”
“The bedroom, that’s where I do my best work,” he says letting out a laugh.
“Oh honey, trust me, it’s all your best work.” She says in a sexy tone.
“What are you doing?” he says laughing as he starts to paint.
“Nothing much, just laying on my bed, I just got out of the shower,” she says seductively, as she wiggles her body in anticipation.
Liam’s eyes shoot up from his painting, even more intrigued now.
“Really? (He clears his throat) What are you wearing?” he asks putting his brush down and sitting back on the stool behind him.
“Not much. Something thin, silk, and short.” She says teasing him.
“I’m cursing the miles between us love,” he says his eyes flickering a sensual want.
“Hmm me too,” she says her voice breathy.
“You know what I’d do to you if I were there?”
“Tell me…” she says her legs sliding along each other as she waits to hear all the dirty things he’d do to her.
“Well first, I’d kiss those perfect lips of yours for a few dozen minutes…”
“That’s a good start,” Aria says stroking her bottom lip.
“Well love, that’s just it, it would be just the start. Once we were done, you wouldn’t be able to breathe much, let alone move.”
A moan escapes Aria’s lips. Liam smirks.
“How does that sound?” He asks walking into his bedroom and laying back on the bed.
“It sounds like you should keep talking, tell me everything, in detail. And don’t leave anything out,” Aria says her blood boiling.
Liam chuckles as he continues their sexy conversation.
Later that night Aria is on her way back from getting a drink of water, she walks back toward Yolanda’s room, she knocks on the door and peeks her head in.
“Hey,” Yolanda says as she sits up reading a book.
“Hey, are you ok? You seemed a little sad earlier. What happened between you and Dr. Greene?”
“Not much, and that’s my fault. I’m so fearful of how getting involved with him might interfere with my work, and how people will talk that I’ve lost all chances of telling him how I really feel. I’m sure he’s over it by now, and moved on. I mean a guy like him…he won’t stay single for long.”
“Yoyo, from what you’ve told us, he obviously likes you. You just have to show him that you’re interested. Guys need some encouragement too sometimes. It’s hard for them to put themselves out there too. Just talk to him. Otherwise you’ll always regret it. And if anyone deserves true love…it’s you.”
“Thank you, I love you,” Yolanda says hugging her.
“I love you more,” Aria says hugging her tightly as a tear springs to her eye.
Yolanda pulls away as she notices, “Ugh stop it, don’t start.”
“I can’t help it. I’m gonna miss you!” Aria says.
“I’m gonna miss you too!” she says her eyes tearing up.
“Ugh damn it,” Aria says letting the tears fall, pulling her cousin into another hug.
“Ok, stop crying. Go!” she says lightheartedly pushing her toward the door.
Aria laughs, “Yes ma’am,” she says wiping her tears and standing up.
She blows Yolanda a kiss, Yolanda blows one back in return.
“Good night,” Aria says in a sing song voice and with a cute little shuffle.
“Night,” Yolanda says with a laugh.
