“Stopppp, Jacob stopppp, no I won’t give it to you!” I scream as he tries to tickle me into giving him my TV remote “you won’t?” He says with an evil look in his eyes, I know there’s more tickling and tackling in store for me but I’m not going to surrender so easily “I would not” I reply him. He loosens his grip on me a bit and I turn to face him, he releases me and I try to run away but he holds my arm in place and he’s looking at me weirdly. “What” I yell at him “I want to kiss you” he says. I’m frozen in place and he grabs the remote from my hand, changing the channel to the super select he wants and he’s acting like he didn’t just say what I heard him say. I smack his arm and he whines a little still laughing, he says “what, you want to kiss me?” I roll my eyes at him. “I’m freezing my eggs” I dropped the bomb on him and knowing him, all his attention will be on me now. Giving me enough time to snatch the remote from his keep and it worked. I picked up the remote and ran to the back of the parlour and towards the room, he follows me yelling whens, whys and all the questions he could think about. “I haven’t decided yet Jacob, that was just an option the doctor gave today” I tell him in attempt to keep the questions from coming in “So why did you say that?” he continues with the questions “Because… Because I wanted the remote” I say realizing how stupid that idea was. “You had me really worried for a second” He says, looking more relieved than he was “Awwn, I’m sorry. Now I want to kiss you” I say and without thinking, I press my lips to his. Bile rose up to my throat, a sharp wave of electrons pierced through my chest, my stomach churned and I almost regret it even if it felt good. It wasn’t until he kissed me back that I realized how much I longed to be kissed and touched like I am right now.
“Hunger is the same, for food or for Jacob”.
ASWD, 2021 🍸
We break off and stare at each other, our eyes begged for another performance and I really believe the weather wasn’t helping because I could hear thunderstorms outside and a bit of rain on the roof. I want to apologize but he beats me to it “I shouldn’t have teased you like that” I hate that he regretted it because I liked it and I wanted more “it’s my fault, I shouldn’t have taken it so seriously” well since he’s being so sorry I guess two can play that game. He reaches for my hand and I pulled back “Michelle I didn’t know you felt…” I couldn’t let him complete “stop” I say, cutting him off “but you kissed me back” I say in an inquisitive manner “I did but…” he starts off “nvmd, we just got caught up in the moment” I say, cutting him off again. He tries to hold me but I’m too aware so I move back and tell him to go.
When I hear the main door close I walk over to keep it shut for the night and I retreat to my room. I call my mom to tell her how my appointment went and that I’ll be doing an early pelvic exam which got her riled up and I spent most of the time assuring her that I was alright and it was basically a routine inspection and they would find nothing. She almost convinced me to come home and she would’ve been successful save for the joint article I’m writing with Andrew. I put my phone off, ignoring a “we good?” message from Jacob and dosed off. Hours into my sleep, I wake up to pee and noticed my phone ringing beside me and I checked the caller ID and it’s Jacob, i let it ring out its time while I go on to use the bathroom. On getting back it has stopped ringing and I pick up my phone to see 13 missed calls. What! I really hope nothing happened to him. I go through a couple more messages he sent and it’s him asking me to pick up and him not being able to sleep blah blah blah. I feel bad but what would I say to him? Just then he calls again and I stare at my phone in contemplation whether to pick or not and i resolve to picking up. “Mich i can’t sleep” was the first thing he said to me and I already know that from his text but i don’t know why… maybe I do but i can’t believe it. “I just woke up” I say to him. “I don’t like fighting with you” he tells me “me too, I’m sorry. I let my emotions get the best of me” I tell him “please go to sleep now, we’ll talk about it later” I continue. “Alright, goodnight” he says, hanging up the phone. I didn’t feel relief as I should have, instead I felt entangled like I am doing something I shouldn’t be doing. It’s really hard to breath.
