“Athena Brown.” The announcer called me to the stage.

After four long hard years, I was finally walking the stage with my degree in journalism. I walk up and accept my degree from the dean and he gives me a handshake.

I go back to sit next to my best friend Ella Brooks.

“We did it!” she shouted to me with a huge grin on her face.

Ella has been with me since we were freshmen roommates and we later got our apartment together during junior year. She got her degree in art and graphic design.

After the last names were called. We all threw our caps up and left the school for good.

“We are going out tonight,” she shouted, as we walked in the front door of our apartment.

I shake my head. “We have to work tomorrow.”

We both work at Mindspark, the new up and coming magazine. I write the articles and Ella works with the design team.

After being offered an internship there during junior year, I decided to stay with the magazine and I hope to one day be editor-in-chief.

She rolled her eyes. “You’re such a buzzkill. We just graduated for god’s sake!”

“That doesn’t mean we can just slack on our responsibilities.”

“But I got us tickets to see Axel Anderson !” she said excitedly.

“Who is Axel Anderson?”

Her mouth drops open. “You don’t know who Axel Anderson is!?” she screamed.


“How are we even friends?” she asked, still looking shocked.

“We became roommates for one year and you just never went away.”

She did a fake laugh while she pulled out her phone. “You’re hilarious. Consider yourself blessed to have me as a best friend.” She handed me her phone.

I looked at it and saw a picture of a very good looking guy. I mean drop dead gorgeous. He has blonde hair, sea blue eyes, lots of tattoos that cover his entire arms and chest.

In the picture, he’s looking to be singing his heart out on stage.

I handed her back her phone. “So?”

“So!” she snatches the phone. “He’s the biggest star right now. He and his band are going on tour and one of their shows is here in San Francisco.”

“Well, enjoy the show.” I try to walk off but she grabs my arm.

“Oh, no no no.” she begins. “You and I are going to that show right after our graduation dinner.”

I groan. I didn’t even want to go to this graduation dinner that some of our friends planned and now she wanted to drag me to a concert? I was hungry but the pizza was only a phone call away.

“Why do I have to come?”

“Because you’re my best friend and you need to get out more. You’re twenty-two years old and my grandmother gets out more than you.”

I scoffed. “I’ll have you know, I get out plenty.”

She crosses her arms. “Oh yeah? Name the last party you’ve been to.”

I was about to name one but she interrupted me.

“Without me dragging you,” she added.

I was quiet. Going to a concert when all I wanted to do was to curl up in my bed and watch Riverdale. I wasn’t much for going out and like right now, Ella is the one dragging me to do crazy things.

“Exactly,” she said, taking my silence as an answer. “You need to start being more adventurous.”

Maybe she was right. I did need to get out and do more.

“I’ll go.” I breathed out.

She squealed. “You may even get a good lay. Because you sure need one.”

“Let’s not talk about my sexual life please?” I begged.

“When was the last time? Greg?”

I wanted to throw up just hearing that name. Greg was my ex-boyfriend who dumped me on our anniversary three months ago for a girl that worked in my department.

Greg works in accounting and I always loved him for his brains but I guess my two years of commitment didn’t mean squat compared to Brittany who has double Ds.

It did hurt whenever I saw the two of them together and Brittany had no problem throwing it in my face.

I nodded my head. No point in lying.

She sighed. “Sorry, babes. I didn’t mean to bring him up but you need to get out there and meet someone new.”

Even though I gave her another head nod. My heart still aches a bit. I put two years into that relationship and the one time Brittany even looked his way he instantly left me for her.

I took a deep breath and gave her what I hoped was a convincing enough simile.

“You’re right.”

“Attagirl.” she smacked my butt. “Now, let’s go get ready,” she added and raced to her room.

I slipped on a simple violet dress that goes above the knee with white strappy heels. I’m standing in front of the mirror. The dress shows all my curves that I was blessed with from my mom.

I have dark brown skin, big brown eyes, and long black hair. My hair is curled to perfection and I made sure to only put on some lip gloss since I’m not a big fan of makeup.

“Ready?” Ella asked while leaning against my door.

Her long curly brown hair is up in a bun and the white crop top with a red floral skirt she’s wearing goes with her light brown skin tone.

I nod my head. “Yeah.” I grab my purse and phone.

“I’ll order an Uber,” Ella said.

Ten minutes later the uber arrives and we get in.


We arrive in front of the restaurant and walk in to see our friends. Mark, Isabella, Casey, and April. They’re already sitting at a table and waving us over.

“Hey, guys.” I greet them and take a seat next to Casey who hugs me.

“We’re finally done,” Isabella said cheerfully.

“Hell yeah! I say we get drunk off our asses.” Mark rejoiced.

Everybody but me agrees but of course, Ella doesn’t let that slide and I end up drinking. Drinking meant that I got bolder and that wasn’t good for anyone.

After dinner and about six glasses of wine. We all walked out of the restaurant drunk and loud. Ella orders another uber for us and Mark orders for the rest of the group.

“Bye, everyone!” Ella yells out the window from the uber.

I laugh and push her back in the car.

“Are you excited?” she asked.

“For what?” I asked.

She groans. “The concert stupid.”

I forgot all about it and suddenly became excited about it. It was the alcohol running through my veins.

“Hell yeah!” I shout which catches the attention of the driver and he narrows his eyes at me through the rear view mirror. I mutter an apology.

“That's the spirit!” Ella yelled not caring about the driver groaning from the noise.

We arrive at the concert and I see a line of people waiting to be let in. I got out of the car before Ella.

There’s a big sign of the rockstar Axel Anderson and his band. Smoked Out Is their name and I cringe. How could they have such a terrible name and be famous?

I guess society doesn’t care about taste anymore. On the poster is Axel himself in the front, another guy and two girls in the poster. They are all dressed in black and red and both men are shirtless.

“That’s only one star for you buddy.” I turn to see Ella slam the driver’s door and he drives off.

“Why only one star?” I asked while we walked to the back of the line.

She shrugs. “He got mad because we yelled.”

I shook my head and chose to not even continue the conversation.

We waited in line for about thirty minutes before we finally made it to the front and Ella handed the big bald guy our tickets and we went in.

The stadium is filled with people and I hate how we’re being pushed as we try to make our way to our section.

We’re standing in the middle and a young guy comes out and starts performing a song which is loud and something I wasn’t into.

The crowd is cheering and having a good time and I look over to see Ella cheering too.

I lean over to her. “Who is that?” I yell in her ear.

She jumps a little. “Sam Wesley, he’s always opening for them,” she answered.

Even though the music wasn’t for me. He is a good performer, he has the crowd hyped and I figure that’s his job. From what I can see he’s kinda cute.

Dark brown hair, tattoos I can see coming out of the white shirt he’s wearing. His voice is beautiful and if he sang pop songs like I was into I would listen.

After he sang two songs, he announced the band is coming out and to that, the crowd started to scream so loud I held my ears.

I look around and see that even more people that come in and the entire stadium is filled.

The band comes out and I can’t help but be drawn to Axel Anderson who starts to yell into the microphone.

“Are you ready!” he yelled to the crowd which caused a lot of ‘hell yeah’

Ella is cheering and I start cheering too. They start performing and I like the music. It’s not super loud and still gives you that rock and roll feel.

Axel is singing his heart out while the rest of his band play instruments and sometimes join in on one a lyric or two.

My body starts moving to the music and before I know it Ella and I are dancing our hearts out.

After what I believe was about ten songs and I weirdly wanted them to keep going. The band says there goodbyes and walks off the stage.

“Come on!” I hear Ella yell and she grabs my hand, dragging me towards the exit.

We get outside and I breathe in the cool air. I’ve sobered up a little bit but I still wanted the night to keep going and I share my thoughts with Ella and suggest a club.

She looks shocked. “You? Athena Brown. Don’t want the night to end.” she sounds truly bewildered.

“Yeah! I kinda have all this energy.”

She smiles and looks around and a grin I know all too well spreads across her face. She was about to do something crazy and drag me with her.

She grabs my hand again and pulls me around the building where I start to see a door that reads BACKSTAGE. I rip my hand away and she turns around.

“No! Ella.”

She rolls her eyes. “You said you didn’t want the night to end right?”

“Yeah bu-” I started.

“But nothing. Do something crazy for once. Take a little risk.” she pleads.

I think for a moment. I mean what was the worst that could happen? I must be still a little drunk because I confidently walk towards the door and start to turn the knob.

It’s time to have a little fun.

The door is locked. I’m a little disappointed but this was probably my self conscious telling me this was a bad idea.

“It’s locked,” I said.

She looks at me and still holds that grin.

“It’s like you’ve never met me,” she said.

I give her a confused look as she started to dig in her little purse and pulls out a black little case. When she opens it, it reveals little tools and I instantly know what she’s going to do.

“Ella no!” I shout-whisper. “You can’t break in! If we get caught we’ll go to jail.”

“We were going to enter anyway. Why not break in too?” she sounds casual as ever as she bends down and starts to work on the lock.

I look around to make sure that nobody is coming. This is surprisingly not the craziest thing she’s ever done but it didn’t mean I was okay with it.

I’m her best friend so of course, I can’t leave her so I decided to just keep a lookout. Ten minutes later, she’s still working on it and even though there’s nobody around I get nervous.

“Hurry up,” I whispered nervously at her.

“Got it.” I hear her whisper and I turn around.

She opens the door slowly, goes in and I follow her.

“This is so crazy,” I whisper to her as she looks around.

I hear faded music and Ella heads toward that direction. I follow after her and we end up in front of a door that’s open and I see people in there talking while the music played lightly.

I hear Ella gasp. “What?” I asked.

She points at the door and I follow her gaze to the one and only Axel Anderson. He’s sitting around a group of girls and a few guys while smoking a cigarette.

Nobody seems to mind the smoke as he blows it out.

I start to change my mind about going in when I hear a voice behind us. We both are startled and turn around.

A man who is taller than us with dark chocolate skin and black dreads smiles at us with a perfect white simile. I think he looks familiar and then it hits me.

He’s a band member and I saw him on that poster outside. I look over to Ella who is starstruck.

“Are you guys going to go in?” he asked with a bottle of champagne in his hand.

“Yes.” Ella finally answered. I look at her with a nervous expression which she didn’t see since she still is starstruck.

“Well come on beauties.” He said and leads Ella towards the room with his free hand on her back.

She turns around and waves her hand for me to follow. I look back at the door we came in, ready to run out of here but I can’t leave Ella.

I walk towards the room with them and everyone looks up at us.

“Found some more fans.” the guy said as he put the bottle on ice and leads Ella to a seat.

I stand there awkwardly, not knowing whether to stay in my place or just take a seat.

“Are you going to sit or just stand there?” a deep voice asked.

I look up to see Axel look at me with a stone expression. He nods his head towards the seat next to him and I see a couple of girls look at me angrily. Must be fangirls.

I walk over and sit next to him. He looks even better in person. His blonde hair is messy, his blue eyes look at me but he shows no emotion in them.

I look down to see he’s wearing a black leather jacket with no shirt and I can tell he spends a lot of time at the gym with his six-pack. When I look up I see that he was checking me out too.

I almost blush but then he blows smoke out.

I cough and glare at him, “You’re blowing that at my face.” I gritted out.

The girls around him gasp and I look at them weirdly.

“So?” he asked.

“So, it’s rude and I would rather not be affected by that cancer stick.”

He looks at me still showing no emotion and starts to put the cigarette back to his mouth but I rip it out his hand. I throw it on the ground and use my heel to put out it out.

His eyes show a flicker of emotion before it goes back cold. Everyone around us looks at me like I just committed a crime which I did earlier but they didn’t know.

“What’s your name?” he asked.

I’m taken back. From the way people were looking at me I thought he would shout at me but instead, he wants to know my name?

“Athena,” I answered.

“Athena,” he repeats. “Well Athena, you just put out my cigarette and that shit doesn’t grow on trees so how exactly do you intend to pay me back.”

My eyes narrow. “You’re a rockstar and I’m up to my neck in student loans so buying you a cigarette is the last thing on my mind.”

I don’t even know where this boldness is coming from. The alcohol must still be in my system because I’ve never been this forthcoming. And the next thing he does really surprises me.

He throws back his head and laughs a deep beautiful laugh.

“You’re funny Athena.”

“I’m glad I entertain you,” I said dripping with sarcasm.

He looks me up and down. I can see the hunger in his eyes and I gulp.

Without taking his eyes off of me he yells. “Everyone out!”

I jump and start to get up but he pulls me back down.

“Not you beautiful.”

I watch as everyone starts to leave the room and the fangirls around him glare at me before leaving. Ella is still with that guy and she gives me a big grin and a thumbs up before leaving with him.

“I can’t leave my friend with a stranger,” I said.

“Jordan isn’t a stranger.”

“Not to you but to me he is.”

He waves me off. “Jordan is a perfect gentleman and would never do anything to harm your friend.” he gives me that hunger looks again. “But I, on the other hand, am not a gentleman.”

I laugh. “Is that a line that usually works for you?”

He raises one eyebrow. “Does it look like I need a line?”

No, he doesn’t. Just sitting here next to him was giving me goosebumps and I could feel my panties soaking under just his intense stare. I wasn’t into bad boys by a long shot.

I was more into the preppy clean-cut good guys if I’m being honest. But the whole bad boy vibe is getting to me and all I want to do is kiss those pink lips.

I clear my throat. “No, it doesn’t.”

He gives me a panty dropper smirk.

“Athena, women fall over me all the time and usually I give them the time of day.” I scoff. “But they have never gathered my attention like you did when you walked into this room.”

He leans in and brushes the hair off my shoulder. He starts to kiss my neck and I can’t help the moan that escapes me.

I want to push him away and just grab Ella and leave. But something inside me tells me to stay and let this happen.

I’ve never taken a risk like this and I would be damned if I missed this opportunity to have sex with a guy like him. I let go of all the self-doubt and kiss him.

I can smell the cigarettes and peppermint on him and although I hate the cigarette smoke I can’t help but kiss him deeply.

He pulls away slowly and we both try to catch our breath.

“Come back to my hotel with me,” he whispered.

My mouth moves faster than my mind does.

“Yes,” I answered.

He grabs my hand and leads me out of the room. We walk out the door that Ella and I came through. He reaches into his back pocket and pulls out a phone.

“I’m in the back, come pick me up.” He doesn’t even say goodbye and hangs up the phone.

He grabs the back of my head and kissed me deeply. I breathe in his scent and my hands roam his body and he does the same.

I don’t even notice the black SUV that pulled up until Axel pulls away and leads me into the backseat.

“To the hotel Zach.” The driver nods his head and starts to drive away.

“I can’t wait to take this dress off of you and kiss every inch of your body,” he whispers in my ear.

I moan and clench my thighs together to ease some of the aches. Axel notices and reaches between my legs and rubs me against my panties.

“You’re so wet, sweetheart.” He kisses my neck and continues to rub me.

I try not to moan too loudly because of the driver and although I have never been the one for PDA when Axel touches me I have no control over my own body. I’ve never felt this way about any man.

We make it to the hotel ten minutes later with Axel still kissing on me and I had to gently push him away so we could get inside. The hotel is huge and no doubt at least five stars.

We walk towards the elevators with my hand in Axel’s. Once we make it to his room he instantly crashed his lips to mine.

He lifts me up with ease and I wrap my legs around him. He never breaks the kiss and leads us to a bedroom where he lays me on the bed.

I hold myself up by my elbows and he watches me like a predator watches its prey. He takes off his leather jacket and lets it drop to the floor.

Next comes his pants and then he’s fully naked in front of me. His dick is unbelievably hard and it’s the biggest one I’ve seen. I take deep breaths and reach behind myself to remove my dress.

Once I slip it off I begin to take my bra off but when I reach my panties Axel stops me.

“No, allow me.” He gives me a smile that makes me even wetter if that were possible.

He gets on his knees in front of me and slowly but painfully takes off my panties and throws them on the floor.

I start to feel a little self-conscious about my body. My thighs are a little big and I have stretch marks on my butt. But the way Axel is looking at me it makes me feel as though I’m beautiful.

He spreads my legs and inhales my scent.

He moans. “You smell so good Athena and I bet you taste even better.”

I throw back my head and moan as his tongue discovers my clit. He sucks and licks me like I’m his last meal. His two fingers push inside and I arch my back.

I grab a hold of his hair and hump his face as he continues to push me close to the edge. His fingers hit my g-spot and I moan loudly as I cum all over his fingers and mouth.

As I come down from my high he licks me clean and stands up.

“I want to taste you,” I said when I regained enough control to speak.

He growls and kisses me. I can taste myself on his lips and it makes me moan. I pull away and push him on to the bed and this time I’m the one on my knees.

He watches me as I lick the tip and begin to suck on it. I take as much of him as I can. I hear him groan as I swirl my tongue around his length. I continue to suck him until he gently lifts my head.

“Babe, if you keep sucking me like that this will end fast and I’m not close to being done with you.”

He sits up and throws me on the bed. He grabs his pants and pulls out a condom and slips it on.

Hovering over me, he kisses me everywhere. He lines his dick up to my opening and kisses me as he thrusts fully into me. I moan as he fills me up completely.

I’ve never felt this full before and it hurts so well. After a minute of me trying to adjust to his size, he starts to move. In and out, pinning my hands above my head and kissing me deeply.

I moan into his mouth and push my hips up to meet his every thrust. He hits my g-spot again and I begin to unravel.

“I’m going to come so hard!” I yelled.

“Come for me, sweetheart. Come all over my dick.”

He keeps pushing in and out of me and I throw my head back and come harder than I ever have before. Not long after he follows after with a string of curse words.

“I’ve never…come like that before.” I breathed out.

He rolls off of me and tries to catch his breath.

“Well, get ready to come even harder because I’m not done with you.”

I look over to see him throw away the condom and get a new one from the nightstand. He’s still hard as ever when he comes back to the bed.

He gives me a smirk. “Sweetheart, I’m about to rock your world.”

Lessons from a One-Night Stand

If you’re a guy like me, and you find yourself having banged your sexy new boss—the school principal—in the back of your Jeep one drunken night, here’s a few takeaways based on my experience…

1) Always get her FULL name.

2) Consider asking what she does for a living.

3) Find out why she’s moved to town. Get details. Details are crucial.

4) Don’t alter her bio in front of an auditorium of high school students unless you know she has a sense of humor for that sort of thing.

5) If you ignore Lesson Four, apologize instead of flirt when you’re sent to the principal’s office.

6) NEVER sleep with her again.

7) Pay attention to this one—it’s the most important of them all. Don’t fall for your one-night stand.

Class dismissed.
