A glass of wine and good old chick flick was just what she needed she thought to herself as she left the office. The lights were turned off and just as she was getting out of her door she bumped into Mac “Oh, sorry Stel.” he mumbled as he saw his friend drop to her knees to retrieve the fallen papers “It’s alright. You heading out?” The way she asked was almost as though she wanted to invite him on a date “Urmm yeah, you wanna get a bite to eat”
She was hoping he wouldn’t ask that but she didn’t have the heart to turn him down so replied with a simple nod and a small smile.
He was determined to tell her tonight no matter what happened. He couldn’t keep these feelings in any longer. “You okay?” she asked almost sensing I was thinking stressing about something. “I’m fine just a few things on my mind.” “Yeah i know the feeling” she replied. Not wanting to tell her I insisted she go first.
“Well” she started “There’s this guy” I could feel myself no longer listening but thinking about this man who Stella my Stella was crushing on. Anyway I continued to listen “and lately I’ve been a lot of him but every time I tell him I’m not interested or I’m in love with somebody else he continues to push me and I don’t really know what to do cause I don’t wanna upset him in case it backfires just like it did with Frankie. What should I do?” I thought for a while before replying “Stella just tell him to leave you alone or you’ll have him arrested for harassment. And one more thing I didn’t know you were in love. Who with?”
She could feel her whole world come crashing down as she those 2 words hit her ears “who with?” she couldn’t answer she couldn’t tell him it was him so she replied with a simple “I’m not I just said it to get him off my back. Besides i would tell you if I were Mac we’re best friends. Anyway it’s your turn” She said quickly changing the subject.
“err,” He muttered “well there’s this woman at work and lately I’ve been feeling things for her things i never used to but now they wont go away but we’re such good friends and I don’t want to ruin it. What do you think I should do tell her or leave things as they are and not risk losing her as a friend. You know I’m not good with personal stuff. What do you think I should I do?”
I paused before responding praying that this girl was me before answering with “Well who is she and how long have you known her?”
I stared into his eyes and he into mine as a small smile swept across his face before he answered in a whisper “Well I’ve known her over 10 years and her name is Stella Bonasera.” I felt the biggest smile fill my face before he finished with “She’s beautiful, funny, intelligent, caring and I can’t get her off my mind and I need to know does she feel the same?” Stella paused before saying lets go back to mine and talk about this there.
The car drive home was silent with the occasional glance at each other. Reaching my apartment Mac got out first then being the gentleman he’s always been opened up my door for me. I offered him a gentle smile and received one in return. As we got to my door and I put the key in the hole I knew that our relationship was about to change I didn’t know whether for better or worse but definitely change. As we entered Mac took a seat on the couch and as I offered a drink he gently shook his head and patted the empty sofa next to him telling me to sit. Before I could even talk Mac interrupted me “I need to know does she feel the same way?” He took my hand, it felt so warm so right as I replied with “Yes she feels the same.”
The next moments were still and silent. I led him to the bedroom by his hand and as we entered the dark room he removed my coat kissing my shoulder passionately gently. I could only smile as I heard the rustle of his jacket being removed.
She turned to face me as we shared our first kiss. The taste of her lips was like my own drug. As I pushed her up against the wall she let out a moan my hand leaving her face past her waist to reach her thigh but still it continued to get lower until reaching the bottom of her dress. I reached up to remove her plain black tights as she unfastened my shirt and yet our lips remained together. They finally parted as I planted quick kisses on her neck yet they were becoming longer and more passionate. She let out yet another moan but louder and longer as my hands searched her back for the zipper on her dress. Slowly I pulled at it as the thin straps left her shoulders and fell half way down her arms whilst she felt my body with warm hands.
I could feel them going lower and lower until she reached my metal belt buckle and the sound of it becoming undone was like heaven to my ears. Her dress continued to get lower. I picked her up as she wrapped he legs around my body I landed kisses on her chest as she arced her back closer to me. Seconds later we lay on the bed. Stella on top of me.
His fingers ticked my back before finding the clasp to my bra. I heard the click as it fell from my body to the floor. We were naked. Mac and I this was wrong yet it felt so right. Both of us wanting so badly to make love to each other. We glanced into each others eyes and decided it was the right time. Finally we were ready to make love
