Can Aiden and Hailey resist temptation? Can they open their hearts for more?
Liam and Allison turn to head towards the house. I know that I should follow them, but damn it I’m holding her and I don’t want to let go. She stands still in my arms not trying to break our connection. My right arm is still draped across her waist holding her tight against my chest. I gently grip her left hip and turn her to face me. She’s staring straight at my chest, not meeting my eyes. I gently lift her chin with my index finger. Fuck she is so beautiful. What if something would have happened to her today? I can feel the anger trying to resurface. I take a deep breath and exhale slowly. Hailey is silently watching me now. I lean down and rest my forehead against hers and close my eyes. Both of my hands find her hips. I’m going to take every advantage to touch her that I can.
“I was worried about you, angel.” I tell her honestly. Well as honest as I can be.
“Aiden, we were fine. Those guys were just being friendly.”
“You don’t know them. Hell, they could have taken you both and did god only knows what to you.” I swallow back the emotion of just the thought of her being hurt.
“I’m not yours to worry about.” She whispers.
And there it is the knife that is twisting in my chest. She’s right, I know it and she knows it, but fuck if I like it.
I pull back and bring both of my hands to her cheeks. “Angel, I care about you. You may not be mine, but I will never let anything happen to you. Do you understand that?” I ask her. I really need her to know how special she is.
“One big brother is enough, Aiden. You don’t have to feel obligated to protect me.”
“Who said I wanted to be your big brother?” I ask trying to keep my voice calm. This is truly a daunting feat with all of the rage boiling inside me. She thinks I want to be her big brother? Fuck that!
“Don’t you? Why else would you go all alpha Aiden and try to keep me from them?” she asks me.
I watch her closely as she waits for my answer. This beautiful girl has no idea the war I have fought these past few months. She has no idea how she affects me, how much I want her. This is killing me. Wanting something this much, something that I can’t have. She licks her lips and now all I can think about is tasting her. I don’t even realize that I’m going to do it until our lips meet and I’m consumed with her sweetness. Lips of an angel, I tell you.
I move one hand behind her neck and the other is holding her cheek. I angle her head back and deepen the kiss. Hailey opens her mouth and I take full advantage to slide my tongue in and hers immediately duals with mine. She moans and my desire is fueled. I can’t get her close enough, can’t get enough period. Hailey slows the kiss and pulls her lips from mine. I tug her into a tight embrace.
“I need for you to always be safe. Not because I feel like your older brother, but because you are important to me. I couldn’t handle it if something happened to you.”
I feel her nod against my chest. “Let’s go, they’re going to wonder where we are.” I whisper in her ear.
She slowly pulls away from me. “Thank you, Aiden.” With that she turns and heads back to the beach house.
I stand there and watch my heart walk away from me. I place my hand over my heart and rub the ache that is throbbing in my chest. No girl will ever mean to me what Hailey MacCoy does.
