Justin turned the car into the driveway and could already see and hear
that most of the people that had been invited to the party were already there.
Not only was the driveway and street filled with cars, but there looked
to be close to thirty people already milling around the yard and basketball
courts when they parked.
"How many people do you invite to a LITTLE barbecue?" she asked.
He put an arm behind her headrest as he backed up a little. "A few,"
he said knowing what she was getting at. She didn't want a big birthday
and he'd promised her that, but when the group had a chance or a reason to
party, they weren't going to do anything little. "Then Joey invited
a few, Lance invited a few, then--"
"I get the picture." She kissed him then adjusted her sunglasses
and opened the car door for herself. He was sure she wasn't that mad,
but he hoped it wouldn't bother her too much to be there with everyone. He'd
promised a weekend away from everyone, but it was impossible to avoid them.
Justin followed her lead to get out of the car. He would have just
taken her home again and kept her there until their flight left the next
day, but everyone wanted to celebrate with her so it was impossible to keep
her away. He walked around the back of the car to the trunk to get her
present out. It might have been a barbeque, but he'd thought ahead and
had gotten her a gift, along with most of the people at the party, he was
sure. She might have said that she didn't want to have a big deal made
of her birthday, but it was one of those catch twenty two kinds of things.
If he didn't get her something he would have heard about it.
"Presents?" she asked slinging her backpack over her shoulder. She
was dressed in shorts and a tank top and had packed his swimsuit, her swimsuit
and extra clothes into the pack for them.
"It's a birthday," he said, "It's kind of part of the deal." He
held the trunk open. "Want to put that in here?"
"Thanks." She nodded and threw the bag in. "I'm used to the
whole birthday presents thing. I'm just wondering when you went shopping."
Justin smiled and moved his sunglasses down on his nose a little to look
at her. "Its a wonder what Fed Ex can do for a guy."
"You and Fed Ex are having an affair." She leaned into him and he
wrapped an arm around her. Her arm went around him and she leaned
her head against his shoulder. "First the condoms and now this?"
"Well it's a little big for condoms, but I think it might go well with
"What?" she asked with a shocked look. "What did you get me?"
"It better not be something embarrassing," she said.
"Oh shit," he said, "I better go cancel the stripper then."
She moved away from him and jumped up a little like a kid who had found
out that she was going to an amusement park. "You got me a stripper?"
"Yeah," he said wiggling his eyebrows, "Me-but later."
"Oh really?" she said.
"MERE!!!!" Addy came running out of the crowd of people and practically
tackled her. "YOU'RE HERE!"
"Addy you're gonna kill her if you act like that," Justin said watching
the friends hug. He knew that most of them hadn't seen her for a while,
or him for a while in that matter, but he hoped no one tackled him like that.
"Hi Justin," Addy said and hugged him too.
Justin got lost in the crowd as everyone went to wish her a happy birthday.
Instead of trying to push his way through with her he moved into the
pool room and set his present down with the others that were piled there.
He let out a sigh and almost had a moment to relax before Brianna came
around the corner.
"Hello Jelly Bean," he said watching the little girl. She wore a
sundress and had a pair of sandals on. It was funny to see a little
girl around. He'd seen his brothers around a lot, but never had seen
such a little baby doll looking girl like her before. "What are you
doing in here by yourself?"
"Pey-ants Jussin," she said with a smile.
"Oh. You wanted to see if they were still here or not?"
"Come here and we'll look at them." He held out his arms to her
and she came to him. Picking her up he held onto her and they looked
at the presents. "It's Meredith's birthday."
She pointed over her shoulder as he picked her up. "Is a pawtee.
I a pey-ant."
"You're a present?" he asked.
"Dis," she said and leaned away from his arms. He almost dropped
her, but caught her last minute as she grabbed up a purple bag and smiled.
"I bet she'll like it," Justin said then took the bag and put it back
down on the pool table. He didn't know what they'd gotten her, but
he was going to bet that a toddler was going to mess with it if she got
her hands on it. "We should go find your mommy because I have a feeling
she and your daddy don't know where you are."
Brianna smiled and grabbed onto her pigtail and played with the curls.
"Didi ata swim."
"Come on kiddo," he said.
Justin adjusted her weight in his arms and moved out of the pool room.
He went back out onto the porch and found Kelly in a chair on the porch.
"Look who I found."
"Oh God," Kelly said, "Joey probably doesn't even know she's gone. She's
gotten to be a little wanderer lately."
"How are you doing?" he asked looking at her very pregnant state.
"Good," she said, "This heat is killing me, but other than that things
are going great and Joe The Third should be here in a couple of weeks."
"Joe The Third?" he asked, "You found out that it's a boy?"
"Yeah," she said, "We accidentally found out the other day. The
doctor felt really bad about letting the secret out, but now Joey can at
least say that he got to name his son since I got to pick Brianna's name."
"Mommy a baby," Brianna said.
"Yep your mom is going to have a baby soon then you'll be a big sister,"
"Do you want me to take her?"
"No," he said, "She's good with me." He looked at Brianna. "That
is if she wants to come with me to get a drink and maybe see what Johnny
is going to cook tonight."
"Always the one looking for food," she said with a laugh.
"You want anything?" he asked.
"No," she said and picked up a glass. "I'm good. If you see
my husband tell him that he needs to watch the kids better."
"Will do," Justin said then turned his attention back to Brianna. "How
about we go get you some juice or maybe Johnny has some lemonade around here."
"Koo-aye," she said with a smile.
"We can see if they have that too," he said and took her off the porch.
"I'll bring her back when I'm done with her or when she's done with me."
Drunken lips found hers in the darkness around the corner from the rest
of the crowd. They moved along her cheek, down her chin and nestled
themselves on her collar bone. Her back was pressed up against the side
of the building and her feet were beginning to slip on the bed grass beneath
them as he moved his hands around her.
A burst of loud drunken laughter came from around the corner and she heard
Joey yelling at Chris for something. It was strange to be outside
doing this. She had snuck around with Justin a little when they'd
first begun dating and he'd been still living at home, but this was different.
This was her and him drunk and making out in the shadows.
"BeeDee," she whispered out keeping her eyes focused on the edge of the
porch where the rest of the party was going on.
"What?" he asked from where his lips had been torturing her neck. She
could feel him through the thin material of their swimsuits and knew that
they needed to be careful or they'd make love right there. He was
panting and even in the slight light coming from around the corner she could
tell that his face was red when he looked up at her.
Her heartbeat out of her chest under where his palm was flat against her
breast as he watched her. Her bikini top had been moved aside and
even though the strap had been digging into her back for the last few minutes
she wouldn't dare ask him to take his hand away. She didn't even remember
how they'd gotten to the side of the house and what had caused the sudden
need to be together, but they had been there for a while now, molesting
each other like teenagers on prom night.
"I'm starting to fall down," she said moving her arms closer around him
and holding on as her heel slipped on the dewy grass again. When they'd
first started hugging their bodies had been wet from the pool, but in that
kind of heat they had now dried, but then the dew of the evening had hit
and they were back to sliding around again.
His arms moved down and pulled her arms around his waist. He groaned
as their bodies were pressed together and she had to kiss him to keep him
from doing it again. His body pressed them up against the side of
the building and his hips moved against her causing a warm friction between
them. He kissed her again when she was more secure then paused. "Do
you want to stop?"
"No," she said feeling the way his hands were now moving the material of
her bikini bottoms out of the way so that his hands could get to her bare
skin. "But I don't want you to break an ankle or anything."
"I won't." His breath against her skin made her shiver. He
moved his feet and found a better way for her to be up against the wall.
"You cold?" he asked.
"A little," she said. She wanted to tell him that her back hurt from
being up against the side of the house, but she wasn't going to ruin that
moment until she really had to.
"Want me to go get you a towel?"
"No. Not yet." She squeezed her legs around him when he started to
move away from her. "We should eventually get back over there with
"Just a few more minutes," he said with heavy breaths moving his hips against
her. He ground against her, biting his lip a little.
The feel of him was intoxicating. She was already close to being
drunk, but with him putting his hands and body all over her she was on the
edge of being insane. His hands had already moved her swimsuit around
so that he could touch her skin, but there were places that his hands hadn't
gone just yet that were calling for him. Being at this party should
have been their time to see their friends, but being back in Orlando and
being half normal for a few hours had only led them back to each other.
Justin moved away from the wall and slowly kneeled down, moving so she
was lying on her back and he was lying ontop of her.
"Can we go home?" she asked.
His mouth moved over her shoulder and lingered on her collarbone. "You
aren't having fun?"
His fingers moved up to untie her top and moments later his mouth had moved
over her breast. "I want more than--" Her voice caught in her
throat as he moved a hand across her stomach. "--Justin." Her
hands moved to the back of his head and she cursed his shorter haircut.
Normally she would have been able to grab onto something to pull him away
from her, but she couldn't this time. There was nothing to hold onto.
"What?" he asked lifting his mouth away from her skin.
"Maybe we should go home," she said. She smoothed her hands over
his hair and looked up at the sky for a minute. If the sounds of the
party weren't going on only yards away from them this would have been an
extremely romantic moment, but she was nervous that someone would catch
"Shhh," he leaned up and kissed her.
His fingers found their way inside her suit and she had to bite down on
her lip as he kept them there. She moved her arms away from him to cover
her chest and he stopped. "What's wrong?"
"I'm cold BeeDee."
"Shit," he said, "I should have brought a towel with us or something."
She looked at his face and tried to make out his expression in the dark.
"Well it's not like you planned to make love to me in the bushes."
"Can we?" he asked sounding like a kid who'd just found out he was going
to Disney World on vacation.
"Can we what?" she asked.
"Can I make love to you in the grass?" he asked.
"You better," she said with a frown, "Because if you leave me this drunk
and horny God knows who I might end up going home with tonight."
"I make you horny?" he asked.
"Oh my god," she said, "Can we please not have this conversation right
now?" Her hand moved down towards his swim trunks. "I have a
whole bunch of other things that I'd rather be doing."
Justin moved away from her a little, but his hand stayed where it was.
"BeeDee." Her fingers tugged at the tie that was keeping his swimtrunks
around his waist.
"Ok," he said, "Ok."
While he moved to slid his trunks down she pulled down her bikini bottoms,
keeping them around one ankle so that she didn't end up losing them.
"Hurry," she said with an urgent tone, partially because she wanted him
badly and partly because she didn't want them to get caught.
"I know you don't want me to rush this."
"At this point I don't care," she said.
Justin moved over her and with a hand moved into position.
Her breath caught when he entered her and she stared up at the sky for
a moment. "Condom?" she said in a soft voice.
"I don't have one Bear," he said and started to pull away.
"It's ok," she said. In her head she was scared that something would
happen and she might get pregnant from this, but at this point, with him
lying on top of her and her already read for him she knew that it would be
hard to just stop, "It's ok."
"You sure?" he asked.
He leaned and kissed her and began to move above her. She normally
would have been more vocal in showing her enjoyment for what was going on,
but she instead held onto his back as he moved and kissed against his shoulder,
biting his skin a little when they got closer to climax.
"Bear," he breathed as he began to move faster. "I love you."
"I love you too," she said.
"Don't scream ok?" he said with a laugh.
She nodded and held her breath as moments later he let out a groan and
then his body collapsed on top of hers.
"I'm a whore," she said with a laugh moments later.
"What?" he asked.
"Fucking in the grass on my birthday," she said.
"Well we don't have to do it again ever if you don't want to," he said
and moved to grab up his shorts.
"Where are you going?" she asked.
"Nowhere." He pulled on his trunks and leaned and kissed her. "My
ass is getting cold."
"Welcome to my world honey," she said and pulled up her bikini bottoms
and found her top.
"You ok?" he asked.
She nodded and tied her top around her neck. "Thank you for my present
"That wasn't your present," he said.
"Well thank you then for whatever that was," she asked.
"You aren't going to be strange about this are you?" he asked.
"No," she said, "But I think a margarita is in order. I'm gonna be
walking back over there wondering if people can tell that we just fucked."
"Don't remind me," he said, "How about I get the margaritas and you find
us a seat?"
Justin pushed himself up, pulled her up then moved to tie his shorts up.
"Why do I feel like I'm having a wham bam thank you ma'am moment?" she
"Because you are," he said, "But don't worry. I'll make it up to
you later. We'll take a bubble bath tonight and I'll give you a massage."
"It's your birthday baby. You get whatever you want."
The comment caught her ear. She wished for a moment that her birthday
was everyday because being able to do whatever she wanted would definitely
He moved to walk next to her across the grass. He swiped a hand across
her back to remove the grass from there and then leaned and kissed her as
they came around the corner.
"Justin," she said, "Your shoulder."
He looked to see that there were bite marks just above his collar bone.
He laughed a little and brushed a hand over his skin. "Next time
don't bite me or I'll bite you back."
"Get a room you too!" Joey called, seeing them in the shadows and
moments later they were back in the middle of the group getting ready for
Meredith to blow out her candles and open her presents.
