Four months ago, I surrendered my virginity to Wright. After that, we do it if given a chance. We can’t get enough of it. Even when Wright’s preboard examination is approaching, he makes time for us to be together.
I hardly get home often because he doesn't want me to be separated from him. So, always lie to Granny that I always do overnight for my thesis and other projects. Wright added wardrobe closets in his room for my clothes and other personal things.
But last week, he told me not to come for a while because the water pipe in his unit broke, and he is currently staying at his parent's house. I tapped my fingers on the table while facing my academic books, I can't concentrate and kept looking at my phone.
"It has been three days, and his phone is still out-of-coverage area," I whispered.
I put my head on my hand and sighed deeply.
I can't help but be worried about him. When on campus, I can't see him, and he is regularly absent. I am starting to worry about his school works. Leon, Fier, and Racquel are avoiding me. Now that Wright is not with me, I noticed that I don't even have college friends. I'm alone.
Well, I am always alone before Wright pursued me. Now that I am used to his presence around me, his absence makes me anxious.
I was waiting at the parking lot and noticed Fier. I jumped out of the bench I’m sitting and run towards him.
“M-Melissa.” He looks nervous.
“I just want to ask. Have you reached Wright? His phone—”
“No. I have no idea what happened to him. Maybe you can call Leon, he lived closer to his parent’s house.” He did not wait for my response and immediately go inside his car and drove it out of the school parking.
I left the parking area with a heavy heart. Where did I go wrong? Maybe I did something that makes Wright hate me. Is it the way I take a bath? Is it the taste of my cooking? Did I invade his personal space when I put too many clothes in his closet?
I am so alone.
I dared to call Leon even though we weren’t that close to each other. After only three rings, he answered the call.
"Who's this?" His voice was cold and expressionless.
"Leon. It's Melissa. I just want to ask if you can help me reach Wright’s—"
"You're just wasting your time with me, Melissa. Why don't you just go to Wright's pad and ask him yourself?"
"But he's not currently living there. His water pipe broke and—"
“It was fixed two weeks ago.”
I stopped and processed his words. “It was fixed?”
“Yes. So instead of being a pest to us, his friends, why don’t you go check him yourself?” He ended the call after hurting my feelings.
They never liked me. Why? I didn't do anything to them. Or did I? No, that's not what matters right at this moment. I rode the jeepney and walked the busy street of Rockwell. When I reached the building he resides, I gave my ID to the reception and gave me a visitation card.
While walking in the hallway, I called Granny and told her that I'll be home late tonight.
"I’ve noticed that you're leaving more often, Melissa." Suddenly, my heartbeat quickened. "Don't get too close to the fire, you might get burned. Be careful, alright?"
"Yes, Grandma," I said softly before ending the call.
I took a deep breath and stopped in front of Wright's unit. I'm brought pizza because this is his favourite food.
I was about to ring the doorbell when I noticed that his door is unlocked. I was puzzled, I never thought he would forget to lock his door. I opened it and made myself welcome. I closed the door slowly so there won’t be any noise.
I saw his bag on his couch and a smile curved on my lips. He is here! I can finally see him!
I placed the pizza on top of the centre table before getting beers out of the fridge. When I get back from the kitchen, my hair stood on end when I heard grunts coming from his room. My knees started to wobble. It's his voice.
I stood in front of his bedroom door and my shivering hand reached for the doorknob. I dropped the beers on the floor and it made the two of them stopped moving.
My lips parted at what I saw. My eyes widened. My hands automatically covered my mouth. On top of the bed, a man is lying on bed and a woman was sitting on his lap. They're both naked. But I can't the man's face.
"W-Wright?" It barely came out of my mouth. My voice sounded hoarse.
No, no. Please, no. It can’t be Wright.
"What're you doing here?" My heart almost jumped out of my chest when I heard a voice behind me.
I turned and saw Wright's puzzled face. He closed the door behind me and pulled me to the other room. It was as if I had lost the weight on my chest when it was confirmed that he was not the man in the room.
I hugged him tightly. "Thank goodness."
When the door closed I looked up at him.
"I haven’t received any calls or text message from you for almost a week!” I said it in a hoarse voice.
He took a deep breath. "I'm from Cebu. I just got home this afternoon."
"What did you do there?"
"I have to take care of something.” He casually said. “I couldn’t call or text you because Dad brought me to a cabin in the middle of the damn forest!”
He let go of me and went to his bed to lie down. I followed and lay down next to him. I put my head on his chest. I felt his finger played my hair.
"Wright, who's that—"
"Fier. That freeloader! I only lent this room to him because his ex-girlfriend made a mess in his unit." His voice was frustrated. “Then, that freaking ass made my place a motel!" He scratched his head and sighed irritably. "Tsk! Do I need to explain everything, Melissa? "
I was offended by his behaviour. "I'm your girlfriend, Wright."
"Damn it! No more questions." It got up and pulled me closer to him. He immediately overwhelmed me. "I missed you, baby."
He kissed me hard on the lips. I wrapped my arms around its neck. I massaged the nape of it while our tongues played. He moved away a bit, but our lips were still touching. "Do you want to get laid tonight?"
"Yes please," I said, chasing my breath.
"Yeah? Wild or rough?" He said as his haughty hand wrapped around my blouse. I moaned as he played with my chest.
"S-Shit! Wright! Take me! Now!"
He quickly removed our clothes. His kisses are intense and eager.
"Ah!" I moaned when I feel him all inside of me.
My nails dig into his shoulder. His every movement is fast.
"Don't fight yourself. You can moan, let the neighbours know my name." He whispered in my ear.
"Ah, n-no. They’ll—"
"I don't care.” He bit the delicate part of my neck. "Damn! You're still so tight!"
"I-I'm c-close, Wright!" I lifted my legs to his waist. This accelerated the movement even more. I just screamed with every stroke of our bodies.
Few more thrust and we reached our climax. He fell on top of me. We catch the breath. I wiped the sweat off his back. Looks like I won't be able to come home tonight.
"I love you, Wright," I whispered softly and gently kissed his neck up to his jaw.
He got up and put on a boxer.
"Go home, Melissa." He said coldly.
"What? C-Can't I sleep here?" I said, frowning.
He turned around and my world stopped when I saw his dark expression. "No. Let's break."
