Jordan was lying on his bed but for the life of him he couldn't fall asleep. It was 3:00 am. He had sang his heart out at the concert, stayed very briefly at the after party and tried to get drunk but failed. Women had tried to entice him but he just wasn't interested. He kept his eyes on his prize all night. He even got jealous when a dark-haired guy approached her and engaged her in conversation. She seemed taken with him-they laughed, they smiled and even flirted. The guy kept her entertained most of the night and he saw them dance a couple of times. Finally, when he couldn't take it anymore he walked over and cut in. After the dance he faked a headache and asked Lana if they could go home.
"Bambi? Can I come in?" Jordan knocked softly on the door and got no response. He had a serious case of insomnia and this was his only remedy. All the alcohol that he had didn't seem to do the trick, even some stronger stuff-he was wide awake.
Jordan opened Lana's door slowly and found her fast asleep on top of the covers, her long legs overlapping each other and her flat stomach exposed. She was in shorts and a sports bra, her smooth, milky skin glistening in the moonlight, her hair fanned all over her pillow and her face looked so serene. He sat on the sedge of the bed and lightly traced his fingers across her stomach and then up to her face. If it were possible, he could sit here and just watch her sleep all night but she would freak out when she woke up and found him staring at her.
Common sense told him to leave the room but he found himself jumping on the bed and snuggling behind her. Taking in her scent, nuzzling her neck and just reveling in being close to her. She was completely out because she never once moved. He gave a contented sigh as he put his arms around her and fell asleep almost immediately..
Lana woke up an hour later feeling thirsty and tried to move but she was firmly secured in a grip. She woke up with a start and turned to see Jordan sleeping like a baby. Just watching him sleep made her heart melt into a puddle. Her hand reached out on its own accord, to stroke his hair and his beautiful face.
A smile lit her face as she reached out for the glass of water on the nightstand. Jordan Carter was lying in her bed in his bare necessities. He was right here with her and not some floozy or flavor of the night. This was the stuff dreams were made of. Her heart fluttered as she took in the sight before her again as she assumed her position once more. Their bodies fit so perfectly together when they were like this, if only it could apply in every area of their relationship. That's if you could even call it that. But a girl could only hope...
"Lana!" Amelia barged into the room, "Oh my gosh! I'm so sorry-I didn't know-sorry!" She covered her eyes and quickly backed out. The said couple were deep in sleep and were oblivious to the intrusion, fortunately for Amelia.
"There is such a thing as knocking you know?" Jones stood at the foot of the stairs, with his hands behind his back, as she descended in a hurry.
"I didn't know-" Belinda said, her face beet red.
"You should learn to expect the unexpected when it comes to those two." Jones said with a knowing look. He had learned that the hard way.
"I didn't expect them to be..you know..Gosh I wish I could unsee that!" She covered her face, trying to hide her embarrassment.
She didn't anticipate walking into Lana's room to find her and Jordan half-naked and glued to each others bodies. After all how could Lana get with him after everything he had done to her? She just couldn't understand it. But then again this was Jordan Carter and he was beyond irresistible. I mean who could say no to that hot body? If Amelia was in the same position then they definitely were not going to be sleeping.
"May I interest you in breakfast per chance?" Jones asked as he led her to the sitting room, drawing her out of her nasty thoughts. "What brings you here so early anyway?"
"It's way after 9 Jones." She flopped onto the couch. "I need to talk to Lana..about something.."
"Well, you just have to wait or come back later?" Jones suggested. "When ever they sleep together they have been known to wake up way past noon..and we had a pretty late night coupled with the heavy hangover.." He perched on the armrest.
"What do you mean "when they sleep together?" She looked at him suspiciously.
"I think I've already said too much-breakfast?" He stood hastily and retreated to the kitchen.
"I think I'm going to go then!" She shouted after him and followed him to the kitchen.
"Slow your row there little lady. I'm sure they will be up and about in no time." He said. "What would you like the chef to prepare for you?"
"An omelette and toast-he can be creative but I don't eat mushroom." She slid onto the stool by the kitchen island.
Lana began to stir when she heard a murmuring of voices coming from downstairs. She tried to turn but Jordan's arms-and legs were tightly wrapped around her. Why would anyone want to ever wake up from this, she thought as she tried to sleep again but Jordan had other plans.
"Good morning sweets." He said, his voice still husky.
"Hey." She said nervously as his arms tightened around her waist
"I could get used to this." He buried his face into her hair and groaned.
"What? Waking up in someone else's bed?" She turned onto her back and faced him.
