“You look gorgeous.”
He loved the wonderful shade of red she turned when he gave her a compliment. She grinned at him and looked down to the floor. He stepped closer to her so he could lift her chin, forcing her to look into his eyes. He was taken aback by her beautiful brown eyes and the way they would light up when she focused on him. He could drown in her gaze. And then she smiled and he knew he was a goner. He leaned closer, needing a taste. She opened up to him with a moan and he took advantage taking their kiss deeper and cupping the back of her head. He guided her to the bed until he heard someone behind him clearing their throat.
“I’m still here guys and aren’t you supposed to be at the wedding reception soon?”
Jas’ roommate pulled him from the haze that was Jasmine. He took a step back and smiled down at her, hoping the night went fast. His need grew stronger the more he was in her presence. If someone had told him months ago that he’d be here with a beautiful woman that he’d met over the phone, he would have called them crazy.
“She’s right, we should be leaving.” Jas managed to say.
James took her hand while she said good bye to her friend and led them to the door.
“You really do look great.”
“Thank you. You look so handsome in your uniform. I never realized how much I loved the marine dress uniform. I can’t keep my eyes off of you.”
“Darlin’, I feel the same way about you. If I didn’t have to show up at my dad’s reception, I would be all over you.”
Jas laughed. He loved to hear her laugh almost as much as he enjoyed her smile. How did I get so lucky?
They reached the car he was using and James rushed to the passenger side to open the door for her.
James leaned down to give her a small kiss before shutting the door and getting into the car.
Ten minutes later they were at the reception hall and Jas turned to open her door when he stopped her.
“Wait.” He pulled her toward him. “I can’t keep my hands off you.” And then he kissed her. He stopped when he heard a voice outside the car.
“Hey, you two come in? Dad’s been wondering where you are.”
James sighed and pulled away.
“I guess we’d better head in, but after this, you’re mine.”
He got out of the vehicle and went to open her door, helping Jas out of the car and into his dad’s wedding reception.
“I’m so glad I met you. You make me very happy.”
James didn’t give Jas time to answer as they entered the building and he started introducing her to his family. I can’t wait until this is over, He thought with a sigh.
