Moving inMature

Giving Thorn a massage had been a thing of the moment. When I invited him in I didn't really know what I was doing. I was still getting a no-go-here feeling about him but... there was something interesting about him. He didn't seem just your adverage guy that you found in the pub.

I mean I deffinetly wasnt your average girl seeing as I never age anymore even though I'm mortal. I just dont age which creeped me out at first but you get use to it and moving town every so often.

It was just life. "Wanna stay for takeout?" I ask with a calm voice not wanting to seem too enthusiastic or just being polite.

"Sure"

"What do you want to have?" I ask twirling a strand of hair round my finger.

"You pick" he says with a smile. I go to order picking out chinese. I come back to find Thorn watching tv and I sit down close leaning against him slightly.

As I do though I regret it but its too late to move. I feel a eirey shiver go through me but hold it back. "I ordered chinese" I tell him.

"I havent had chinese in a while" he says with a smile.

"Hmm" I whisper. "What are you watching?"

"Some movie I dont know what its called" he says. I fall into silence trying to work out what I'm feeling. "I can change it if you want"

"No, it fine" I say shrugging when he smiles. I stretch out and he looks at me before smiling. "What you looking at?" I tease.

"You. You're very pretty" he says causing me to blush the most brightest shade of red. I'm saved by the door bell.

"I'll... I'll get it" I stutter. He smiles just before I get up and strangely my legs feel like jelly making me stumble.

"You okay?"

"I'm fine" I tell him. I buy the chinese and thank the delivery man before he leaves. I head back into the living room and feel my heart begin to race as he smiles up at me.

"Good. I wouldn't want you to get hurt" he says making me blush again. Wait, what the hell's wrong with me? One minute I know there is something iffy about this guy and the neck I'm turning into goo in front of him.

I sit down and we both begin to eat. I hide slightly behind my eating trying to calm myself down and think sense. Thats when he slips his arm behind me on the sofa to wrap it round me and I cant stop him. I dont know why. He then leans towards me slightly and I still dont move. My breathing quickens and I cant stop it. What the hell is happening with me?

I hear him hum but just stare at the food in my lap. "You okay?" he asks.

I nod and look up at him smiling. "Why wouldn't I be?" I question.

"You're staring at your food"

"Maybe cause I'm hungry" I laugh which isnt a lie. I am quite hungry. Thorn laughs back making my stomach do flips.

"Might be better to eat it instead of staring at it, then" I smile and dig straight in trying to relax but once again that sense of unease has come back. He eats some of his as well and then looks at me. "Are you sure you're okay?"

"Yes" I say smiling slowly. "Why should I not be?"

"You seem tense"

"You're telling the masseuse she's tense?"

"Ironic, huh?"

"Very" I whisper crossing my legs as I put my food on the coffee table. Thorn looks at me and I smile my heart skipping a beat. He smiles back and I begin to watch the tv.

After a while I notice him watching me and look back. "What?" I ask feeling a bit in the spotlight.

"I was just admiring how beautiful you are" he says with a smile making me blush. Then he kisses my cheek. I know I did it earlier but all I can do is stare. He bites his lip and I just blush even more if thats even possible. "Sorry"

I shake my head. He tilts his head and I just look at my hands. "You okay?" he asks and I just nod. He smiles and I get up.

"I'm going to get a drink" I mutter. "Do you want one?"

He shakes his head and I go into the kitchen pouring myself a vodka and tonic. I stand there deep in thought. I've not done anything too much but I'm still freaking out. Why?

"Phoenix"

"Oh, sorry, um, did you want a drink after all?"

"No. Are you sure you're okay?"

"Why do you keep asking me that?" I say actually feeling a bit annoyed.

"Like I said, you seem tense" he says shrugging.

"I'm fine" I say relaxing and smiling at him. He smiles back. What am I worrying about? Its just a guy in my home. Thats nothing new. Just cause I have a bad feeling doesnt mean anythings deffinetly wrong.

The End
