Chapter 9: Intimacy
The feeling was ethereal...
That was how I felt as soon as Theresa’s soft, warm lips were pressed against mine. I did not force her into doing this mind you, it is not in my nature to hurt a lady. I released my grip on her chin and proceeded to touch her face.
The kiss was becoming quite intense, more passionate. I was beginning to hear heavy breathing from Theresa; I have also noticed that her eyes were closed the entire moment. I believe she might be enjoying the whole moment.
Afterwards Theresa opened her mouth a little to catch some breath. To make things more exciting, I opened my mouth a little and slipped my tongue inside. I opened my eyes a little, and saw Theresa’s face flushed. Theresa could not stop squirming while my tongue gently danced with hers.
Then after a while, she suddenly opens her mouth and pulls away from the kiss.
“Julian, I don’t think this is a good idea.” she said “I mean, we’re best friends. We’ve been childhood friends ever since. But we can’t go beyond our current state.”
Hmm…I see, this is becoming a little too complex. What shall I do next? I will either tell her a thing or two to convince her that my intentions are pure? Or just simply seduce her? However, if I just seduce her, she might completely decline my advances.
My hand still rested on her face, I still could feel the heat on her cheek. Theresa was still looking at me with utter worry and confusion, and I just smiled while I continuously caressed her face.
“I know Theresa,” I said “but don’t you want to give your dear friend a chance.”
She responded by holding both of my hands. “Yeah, but not in this way.”
I did not let go of her hands, I just drew myself closer to her. My face was a few inches away from hers, my lips were ghosting over hers.
“Very well.” I said. Then I gave her a small peck on her lips. That left her, once again, in a confused sense of awe.
“Judging by the look in your eyes, you seem to be enjoying this. Are you not, Theresa?
Oh, don’t blame for being “too candid” my dear Theresa. She just blushed and quickly turned her head away. I gave a soft chuckle and kissed her on the cheek. I was about to kiss her on the lips again. Then all of a sudden, we both heard an unfamiliar tune.
Theresa opened her eyes, and immediately opened her and took something from her bag. A mobile phone.
She looks at the screen, and grabs her bag. “Julian, I must go home now. My mom’s calling me already.”
She stood up and hugged me before reaching towards the door. My eyes just followed her movement towards the door, and then I saw her leave the house. It was sad to see her leave. Am I going too fast? I would not usually care, however it all changed when I met her.
I stood up and left the living area, and went upstairs to clear my mind.
It was night time, and I am still awake. It was awfully peaceful in my room, and now’s the right time to finish that “Phantom of the Opera” novel. Particularly, the last chapter of the story. This should help with clearing my thoughts.
After an hour or two, I finished reading the book. The story was tragedy at its finest; the Phantom never got Christine. Instead, she went with that goody two – shoes of a person named Raoul. Although, I remember a part where Christine promised to meet the Phantom before his death. I must say, that was a nice twist.
I should apologize to Theresa so I could win her trust back.
The next morning, I decided to go to Theresa’s house. There I left a bouquet of roses on Theresa’s doorstep. I also left a note that said:
Please forgive me for acting rather foolish yesterday.
Afterwards, I left the place and walked towards the street. Suddenly, I heard the door open. I turned my head to see it was Theresa. I saw her carry the bouquet and read the note. She saw me and simply smiled.
Then I smiled back and started walking.
I know this all happened in a very short time, but I have never felt so elated.
As soon as I have attained all of the chaos pearls, I will be unstoppable. I could even rule the world! Along with Theresa…
Yes, that’s right…Theresa… my beautiful little flower.
I shall make her my queen…
