Eve get your ass down here.
We need to celebrate your 22 birthday!

I sigh as I read the messages from the girls. I fix up my black hair fluffing out the curls that hang down my shoulders.

Hold your horses
I need to find my lip gloss.

I set my phone back down and look for my lip gloss. I can’t seem to find it anywhere. Fudge.

I look in the only place I haven’t looked. Under my pillow. It’s exactly where I thought it would be. I let out a sigh of relief. I honestly think my friends would leave me if I’m not ready.

This is me! Evelyn Jones. I’m a twenty-two-year-old college student who just started the semester.

It’s my second-to-last year of school and I’m celebrating with my friends. Usually, I would be in bed studying, but my friends convinced me to get ready.

I guess this is karma for befriending party animals.

I walk out of my room and down the stairs. I live alone in a two-storey one-bedroom house. It’s small and affordable; just what I need to finish my four years of college.

My parents are out exploring in all kinds of countries, living their wild lives. Leaving me with only my grandma to visit. I plan on visiting before my first day of junior year.

I walk out of the house and my friend Cali honks the horn.

“Hurry up or we are leaving without you.” She giggles.

“Okay, I’m coming.” I walk as fast as I can in these stupid heels. I don’t know how my feet are going to last tonight.

Once I get into the car the girls start cheering.

“I’m getting you out of your shell tonight,” Sheren says as she winks at me.

“Just because I don’t party doesn’t mean I’m living in a shell.” I roll my eyes.

“You don’t socialize either,” Melinda comments.

They are right. I don’t socialize but I have my reasons.

“We are your only friends.” Sheren shrugs.

“Seriously you need more,” Cali adds. “You barely even come out of the house.”

I don’t need more friends. I’m so focused on school I barely have time for the ones I have.

“I don’t need more friends. I’m only going out with you ladies this once.” I stop all of them from talking.

“Well, we plan to make the best of this night with you!” All the girls do a little giggly dance. I have a bad feeling about tonight.

We get to the club an hour later. Seriously, it takes an hour to get here! Ugh never going out again.

“We don’t have to wait in line, girls. I got us VIP tickets.” Cali winks.

“Nice going, Cal. I would have died waiting in that line.” Melinda sighs.

Cali hands our tickets to the guard in the front and he lets us right in. We earn a few groans from everyone in the back of us.

When I walk in I almost gasp. The club is beautiful. I thought it was going to be stinky and small but it’s large. There are probably a thousand people here.

The entire club is blue and the VIP area is a bar with a few tables. I take it those are our seats.

All the men are wearing suits and the girls are wearing short dresses. This place doesn’t seem too casual. Their dress code is weird too.

The people on the dance floor are grinding on each other to the music. Grooving and losing themselves. I’m honestly impressed.

“How did you guys find this place?” I ask.

“It was recommended by a guy friend of mine,” Cali says.

The girls and I don’t ask any further. We know Cali sleeps with every guy friend she’s ever met. I’m surprised she hasn’t settled down with at least one of them yet.

“Let’s go get a drink first girls,” Sheren says, marching off to go get a drink.

I roll my eyes and follow them. We pass by the dance floor and head straight to the bar. The girls know I don’t drink. There are so many things in my life I haven’t done yet and this won’t be one of them.

“Can we get tequila shots, my good sir?” Melinda winks at the bartender who’s wearing an expensive suit.

“Coming right up ladies.” he smiles. He disappears through a door and we all sit down.

“Pick one, choose one, Eve. Get laid tonight or have at least two tequila shots.” Cali raises an eyebrow.

“How about neither?” I reply, crossing my arms.

My friends have no idea that I’m a virgin. Honestly, I have no idea why I’m a virgin.

my ex broke up with me four years ago I haven’t been with anyone else. It’s not like he broke my heart or anything. We had our differences and it just didn’t work out.

We weren’t the ones for each other. After that, I just haven’t met anyone worth getting into a relationship with. My friends blame it all on the constant studying I do.

“Neither isn’t an option, girl. You’re beautiful, so finding a guy will be easy. Or you could easily take a shot with us.” Just as she says it the bartender walks out with two trays of tequila shots.

He sets the trays down and puts four in front of each of us before walking off to his next customers.

“I’m not drinking this.” I push the drinks away from me. No way am I ever putting that into my mouth.

“Okay fine be a party pooper.”

All three of the girls take a shot while I sit here with my arms crossed.

“I’m gonna go dance. Watch my drinks, please.” Melinda says scooting out of her chair.

“I’m not drunk enough to go dance,” Cali says, taking another shot. She turns to me. “So how has your week been? I haven’t seen you since Friday night.”

“It’s been fine. My parents went out of the country again. Honestly, they never ask me if I want to spend any time with them.” I sigh.

“That’s because they’re not getting any younger and they want to spend time living wild,” Sheren says. “You’re gonna have to tell them sooner or later.”

Cali nods. “She’s right. They think you’re gonna have to tell them to spend some time with you at least once .”

I suddenly feel someone sit next to me.

“Give me a bourbon. Straight,” he barks at the bartender. His deep British accent makes him sound sexy.

I sit up straight and move a piece of hair behind my ear. What am I doing? His voice isn’t that intimidating.

“Oh my gosh, girl! The guy next to you is the sexiest male specimen I’ve ever seen,” Cali whispers. “We can switch seats since you don’t want to get laid tonight.”

I slap her arm playfully.

“No. I’m not getting up so you can show your boobs to the British guy.” I respond, wide-eyed.

I need to get a good look at him first. I clear my throat and rub my finger on the rim of my shot. I may not have a boyfriend but I know how to look sexy.

“Bad day?” I ask, not turning toward him or making eye contact.

“Yeah. You wouldn’t believe how sensitive people can be,” he sighs.

I turn a little to look at him and damn. He’s tall with dark brown hair and dark blue eyes. He has a jaw that could cut a person.

He’s wearing a pair of black jeans with a leather black jacket. I can see his muscular arms pushing out of his hoodie. He looks sexy as hell. I almost moan just looking at him.

He turns his gaze toward me and I swear I feel my insides tingle.

“It always helps to talk to a stranger.” I smile, trying to look just as sexy as he does.

“Yeah well, I don’t go pouring my heart out to just anyone.” He leans his arms onto the bar and turns his head toward me.

“You sure? I might be able to help.” I raise an eyebrow and smirk.

He smiles and oh Lord is it mesmerizing. “I need a drink before I start talking.”

Just then, the bartender walks out and hands him his fresh drink. He takes a big gulp and my body heats up.

He even looks sexy drinking. I watch as his Adam's apple moves up and down. I lick my lips and look away.

“So I’m guessing you aren’t from here?” I ask.

“Nope. I just moved out here for work from England.” He smirks.

“England, that explains the accent.” I look into his dark blue eyes and he smiles.

I clear my throat and accidentally take a shot. Shit, this tastes disgusting.

“Seems like you had a bad day too,” he says, looking down at my empty glass.

“Well, it’s my birthday and I would rather be at home reading a book.” I sigh.

“Well happy birthday…um?”

I look at him and giggle.

“It’s Evelyn.” I lean my head on my hand and turn toward him trying to be seductive.

Evelyn.” My name on his lips shouldn’t sound as seductive as it does, but it is. I bite my lip and he takes another sip, not taking his eyes off me.

“I could ask the bartender to bring out a slice of cake with a candle on it,” he offers with a smile.

“Wait, they have cake here?” My eyes go wide. I have the biggest sweet tooth and getting a cake from a stranger will help.

“Bartender!” he calls. “Give me a slice of the best cake you have.”

The bartender nods.


“It’s Aiden Sawyer.” He licks his bottom lip as if he’s expecting something.

Aiden,” I whisper and it makes him smile.

He keeps his eyes on my lips as if he wants me to say it again. I down my drink so fast I don’t have time to process what I just did.

“How old are you anyway?” He asks.

I think about lying but what good would that do? I’m an adult that’s of age.

“Twenty-two. How about you, Aiden?” I ask.

“I’m twenty-eight. Maybe a little too old.” He smirks and I giggle.

“Not old at all! You’re still pretty young.” I smile and rest my chin in my palm. “Now tell me, why are you gulping drinks at the bar?”

“My ex-wife is a crazy bitch.” He sighs and runs a hand through his hair. “She snuck into my house with nothing but a robe on. I’m not getting back with her though.”

I can’t help but laugh and he smiles at me. “Sorry. That just sounds crazy is all. Thankfully, I’ve never had an ex like that.”

“Oh trust me, you wouldn’t want to.”

After a while of talking and laughing, he sits up. “It’s late, I think I should be heading home.”

I look at the dance floor and see the girls having fun grinding on guys.

“Oh,” I say with a frown. This is the closest I’ve gotten to dating another guy.

I haven’t had this much fun in forever. The thought of him just leaving makes me sad.

“Hey–” We both say at the same time then smile.

“You go first.” I laugh.

“I know we just met…” He pauses. “I don’t want our night to end like this. Could I maybe take you to my place?”

With how much I’ve drunk, I say yes without even thinking about it. I stand out of my seat and take his hand in mine.

I can’t remember all the laughing we did in the car as he drove me to my place. I was nervous. I was about to have my first time with a stranger in his house.

I texted my friends where he lives just in case they needed to come to find me.

My nervousness disappeared though once I walked into his house and he softly pinned me against the wall.

“You don’t have to be nervous.”

I look down at his lips wanting him to kiss me but he doesn’t. Instead, he plants light kisses on each side of my neck.

For five minutes straight, I moan, begging him through my moans to kiss me. He finally brings his head back up and looks me in the eyes. I have to tilt my head just to see him.

He’s so tall, I probably wouldn’t be able to kiss him even on my tiptoes.

“I’ve wanted to kiss you since you first talked to me at that bar.” He groans and I part my lips and breath out a soft moan.

“Then kiss me Aiden,” I purr.

He smirks and then lowers his lips to my ear. “I’m not the kinda guy who gives you what you want, Evelyn. You have to work for the kiss.”

His eyes shine playfully.

I poke out my lip and trace my hand up to his biceps. “What do you want me to do?”

He smirks.

“Make me want the kiss,” he whispers.

“Don’t you already want it?” I tilt my head to the side letting my hair fall off my shoulder.

I know what he wants. I have to drive him crazy for this kiss, just like I am right now.

“Yes, but I want you to drive me crazy.” He nibbles my ear and I feel a pool of wetness in my underwear. I clear my throat.

“Mr. Sawyer. If you don’t kiss me right now…my panties will be so wet I’ll have to take them off without your help.” I bite my lip and moan. I feel his hard press against my leg.

“I’ll have to finger myself with only the memory of your lips on my neck.”

I’m starting to get embarrassed by all the dirty talk I’m doing with a stranger. I feel empowered just from the way he’s looking at me. He’s picturing everything I’m telling him in detail.

“You’ve won, Evelyn. I can’t wait to feel just how wet you are for me.” He groans in my ear. He’s just about to kiss me when my phone rings.

I bite my lip and he moves away. No, that's the opposite of what I want him to do!

“You should get that,” he says. “I’ll get us a glass of water.”

I pull my phone out of my pocket.

His house is ginormous. I might get lost if I try to walk around. So I do what anyone would; I follow him into his kitchen which is bigger than my room, bathroom, and walk-in closet.

Is he a billionaire?

I answer the phone a little awestruck.

“Bitch why did you go home with a stranger?” Cali screams through the phone. “I didn’t want you to get laid by some random!”

“Relax, Cali. Aiden is a nice guy. I mean we haven’t even thought about taking our clothes off.” I smirk at him and he eyes me up and down.

“Okay we have, but we haven’t yet,” I explain.

“I’m coming to get you. I’m not gonna let some stranger take my baby’s virtue.”

I roll my eyes.

“Well, you told me to get laid so that's what I’m doing. I even drank all those shots you gave me.” I whisper into my phone.

“Oh, Eve. I shouldn’t have put all that stuff into your head. I don’t want you to regret this,” she says worriedly.

“Don’t worry. I’ll be fine. Gotta go bye!” I hang up the phone, frustrated. I cross my arms and glare at Aiden. “That’s not playing fair.”

“How so?”

“I drove you crazy, so where is my kiss?”

He sets our cups onto the counter and backs me up against it.

He leans down and claims my lips. I moan, not expecting it to be this good. I wrap one arm around his neck and run the other one through his hair.

He holds my sides, keeping me lifted a little to reach his lips.

I feel like I’m on cloud nine. He lifts me onto the counter and one of the glasses falls onto the floor, shattering. We break apart breathing for air.

“Shit. That was my favorite mug,” he pouts and I laugh.

“Give me a minute to clean up and I’ll take you upstairs.” He smiles before leaving the kitchen.

That kiss has me speechless. I don’t know what I’m doing though. What if we get into bed and I’m not experienced enough?

I’ve read my fair share of erotica but this is real life. I can’t live through my character right now.

I pull my phone out and search: What does sex feel like to virgins?

What pops up only makes me feel worse. Words like painful, tearing, blood.

I set my phone down quickly once Aiden walks back in with a broom.

“I’ll make this quick,” he says, starting to sweep.

“Sorry about the glass.” I chuckle.

“It’s fine, I just have to search a bunch of stores to find another one.” He dumps the glass into the garbage can. “Follow me.”

I slide off the counter and follow him up the stairs. “Your house is so big.”

I admire all the pictures of him and what seems like his family on the walls. An older woman and man, a beautiful dog, him and two other guys, and a girl.

“Yeah. My family is kind of wealthy, but I don’t like talking about money.” He says.

“Is that your family?” I ask.

“Yeah. My mom, dad, two brothers and little sister.” He smiles.

We reach the top of the stairs and he opens the room door.

“Wow,” I say, stunned. His room has a nice view of the city.

“Yeah it’s nice isn’t it?”

“This is better than nice.” I bite my lip and close the door behind us.

He turns toward me and licks his bottom lip. He stalks toward me in two steps before claiming my lips. I moan and he lifts me.

He walks me over to the bed and sets me down softly.

“Take your clothes off, Evelyn,” he says breathlessly. I blush. I don’t want him to watch me take them off. I mean, what if he doesn’t like my body?

“C-Can you turn around,” I whisper? “If it makes you less nervous.”

He turns around and I take a deep breath. I slowly take off my shirt first leaving my bra on then move on to my pants. When I look up he’s still turned around but he doesn’t have a single layer of clothes on.

“Can I turn around now?”

“Yes.” I blush.

He turns around, showing all his glory. My eyes go wide at how big he is. I bite my lip as the bed dips.

He climbs over top of me, taking in my whole body with his intense gaze. He kisses my stomach and I shiver.

“You’re so beautiful,” he whispers. “I’m going to make you come so hard Evelyn, you won’t be able to stop.”

I moan as he licks up my stomach. His touch only makes my body burn with need. It sends a sensation I’ve never felt before down to my toes, making them curl.

His eyes on me make me feel sexy. I want his eyes to stay on me forever. Never looking at anyone else the way he’s looking at me. He reaches behind me and unclasps my bra.

My bra rubs slowly against my skin as he slides it off causing me to moan softly.

“You’re sensitive,” he says, rubbing his fingertips down my sides. I let out another soft moan.

I feel a sensation run through me again. It’s passionate and slow.

“You like that?” he asks with a smirk.

“Yes.” I did like it. Just his touch alone could probably get me off. I close my eyes as he does it again.

Then I feel him take my breast into his mouth and suck.

“Oh!” I gasp. He flicks his tongue back and forth and I run my hands through his hair. “Aiden.”

I moaned once he backed away. He was only gone for a second before giving my other breast the same attention.

“I’m going to take my time with you. Get you so worked up that you’ll beg,” he whispers looking deep into my eyes.

“Mm,” is all I can mumble.

We break eye contact and he starts kissing my thighs.

“Aiden–” I try to say but it comes out jumbled between a moan and a cry. He nips my leg leaving a light red mark then he does the same thing as he keeps moving up.

“I love the way your body reacts to me. You want me to fuck you, don’t you?”

“Y-Yes,” I say breathlessly.

“Good. I will.” He swipes his tongue up my soaked panties and groans. He squeezes my ass. “I can feel your wetness through your panties.”

“They’ll only get wetter if you don’t fuck me.” he raises an eyebrow looking at me like he wants to punish me.

“Open wider,” he growls and I do.

He bites my panties and pulls them down with his teeth. Then he smirks at my exposed pussy. “Your pussy looks so fucking delicious.”

He looks up at me. I don’t say anything though I just watch to see what he’s going to do.

He licks the outside softly but it’s enough for me to jerk my body up for more. He moves back though.

“What do you want me to do?” he asks.

“W-What?” I look at him, stunned.

“Tell me what you want, baby,” he says. He would know what I want. I want to feel the pleasure I hear about from literally all my friends.

“I want you,” I say.

“What do you want me to do?” he asks more specifically.

I honestly don’t want to say it. It’s embarrassing enough being naked in front of a stranger.

“Fuck me with your tongue.” I let out.

“Good girl.” He lowers his face back down and sticks his tongue between my wet folds. I close my eyes as he gets deeper.

I moan once he starts to devour me. “Aiden. Oh yes, right there.”

I slide my hand into his hair and grip him closer. I lay back on his bed as his tongue works its magic. His fingers dig into my ass pulling me closer. Needing my closer.

I couldn’t handle it anymore. My legs start to shake as my strong orgasm hits.

“Aiden, Aiden, oh Aiden!” I moan as he works me until I’m a squirming mess.

I lay back with my arm over my eyes covering my embarrassing face. He lifts me and I look at him.

“I’m going to fuck you now,” he growls.

“Okay,” I whisper, exhausted. Can I even come again?

He lays me down on the bed and quickly climbs on top of me. He reaches into his drawer with his free hand. He pulls out a condom and my nerves suddenly come back.

It’s finally going to happen. Am I ready for this?


He slides it on then positions himself between my legs. Then he grins. “I’m going to make you scream my name a lot more than earlier.”

I moan as he slides in slowly…
