Chapter 3

***Thought I'd add a picture of the man who inspired my story...because he's gorgeous!~>
@Lileannee-were you guessing right at who you thought it was? 
As always, enjoy! Cant wait to hear from ya'll :)

We go back upstairs, and are immediately handed new drinks, and mine is in his hand.

“Thank you,” I say
“Of course, having fun?” He asks
“Yeah! I’m glad we came out with ya’ll, I’ve been wanting to check this place out,”
“Well, glad we could show you around. I don’t think we’ve properly met, I’m James,” he says, holding out his hand
“Jamie, or Jay, whatever,” I say, shaking his hand
“Nice to meet you,”
“So, how’s the Burgh treating you so far?”
“Great, my dad’s from here so I’ve been out here a lot, I’ve always loved it,”
“Good! It took some adjusting out here, but I really like it,”
“Yeah, I bet,”
“You look beautiful tonight, by the way,”

“Hey, you 2! Come dance!” Miranda yells with Max, Marc and Vero behind her
“Umm,” James says
“Oh come on, its not optional,” Vero says smiling as she’s grabbing our hands. Yep, I like her.

The six of us squeeze onto the dance floor. At first, it’s a little awkward dancing with James, since we barely know each other, and the song was obviously a booty-shaking-bump-&-grind kind of song, but we got more comfortable with it. He put his hands on my hip to keep the rhythm, and was shying away from being shy. 

I’m guessing I smiled so big when he whispered in my ear to tell me again how beautiful I am. After which, he turns me around so we were dancing face to face.  He kept his hands on my waist, and held onto a belt loop when I put my arms up around his neck. With my heels on, he was still a little taller then me, we were so close that our cheeks were touching and I could feel him smiling.

When we take a break, I join James and Jordan on the couch, with Jordan handing me another drink

“Geez boys, trying to get me drunk here?” I ask
“Maybe,” Jordan says with a smile
“Thank god I’m off tomorrow,”
“So, Miranda said you girls are planning a house warming party?”
“Yeah, we haven’t done much, but it’ll happen. It won’t be a big one, because I still don’t know a lot of people,”
“You know us!” Geno says, joining us
“Yeah, ya’ll are invited, and then some work people, that’ll probably be it,”
“It’s better then no one,” 

“So, I wanted to ask you something,” James says as the guys get up and leave us on the couch
“Sure, what’s up?”
“I was wondering if I could take you out to dinner?” he asks nervously
“Yeah, I’d like that,”
“Ok, great!”

Vero gives me a smile and thumbs up as she sees me and James walking close by, all I could do is laugh as we make our way to the stairs to dance more

This time, there is no awkwardness with the dancing; we’re face to face again. I looked around for a sec then turn back to see James looking at me, which causes me to giggle before looking back at him.  There was something on his mind; I could see it in his eyes, but before I could say anything, his lips crashed onto mine.  He deepened the kiss for a second, before we hear the group around us hollering and whistling. He smiles and I bury my face in his chest again, probably blushing like crazy.

“Thata boy, Nealer!” Max yells

We have a few more drinks and dance a few more songs before it was last call and we didn’t even notice because we were having so much fun, until all the lights got turned on. None of us were ready to go home yet, and after dancing all night, we decided to go Tom’s diner down the street for some food. 

The near empty diner gets so much louder when we all walk in, especially with the guys being even more loud when they are drunk, we take a booth in the back as the waitress clearly recognizes the guys.

Even though it was almost 4 in the morning, we decided to walk back to the apartments.  Cabs had long since finished running, which led the guys to walking to Max’s house, where they passed out.  So we said our good byes outside of our building.  James gave me another kiss before we exchanged numbers and he said he’d call me later to make plans.

I pass out as soon as my head hits the pillow and before I know it, it’s 11am and I decide to stop being lazy.  I had some text messages from some of the guys, and one from Miranda, I call her first and tell her to come over for a late breakfast, then read the other messages.

“Jay, you def gotta come out with us more!” –Jordan
“That was one of the best nights at Diesel since we won the cup!” –Max
“Last night was a blast, really glad you joined us ;)” –James

I let Miranda in a few minutes later while I’m texting the guys back

“Oh my gosh, last night was so much fun!” She says sitting on one of the bar stools
“Oh I know! I haven’t had that much fun in a long time,”
“Me either. So how did things go with James?”
“Good! He wants to take me to dinner,”
“Really? I think you guys are way cute”
“Yeah, he asked me when we were sitting on the couch, ya’ll were getting drinks,”
“Dude, that’s awesome! Max noticed that he kept looking at you,”
“Aww, he’s so cute,”
“Good kisser?” She asks
“I don’t kiss and tell,”
“I’m calling BS on that one!”
“Ok fine, yeah he is. So what about Mr. Talbot?”
“He’s pretty much amazing. He sure is a sweet talker too,”
“Yeah, I could only imagine,”
“Ok, let’s start planning your party?”
“Ok,” I say as I reach for a notebook, “Who should we invite?”
“Well the guys, obviously,”
“Yeah, I don’t want it to be too big though, or loud either,”
“So Sid, Max, Geno, Jordan, Kris, Ben, TK and James,”
“Got them,” writing names down
“Marc Andre and Vero?”
“Yes! I love Vero, she’s so nice,”
“Me too! Oh and TK will probably bring his girlfriend, and Ben might bring his wife if he comes”
“That’s fine, as long as there’s no drama, I don’t want to have to kick anyone out,”
“Definitely not. Ok, who from work?”
“Rachel, Danny, Rob, Carly, Abby and Patrick,”
“So besides us two, that’s 18 people,”
“I think that’s enough, any more and there won’t be room!”
“True story. Now we need a date,”
“What about Saturday? I’m off and I’m pretty sure you are too,”
“Yeah, I am,”
“Ok, cool. I’ll send out a mass text to everyone,”

Miranda and I planned to have the party on Saturday, in a few days and it would be a black and white cocktail party, the guest list had been cut down to 13, because Danny, Abby and Patrick had to work and the Lovejoy’s had previous plans.
