Natalie glanced over towards Bruno in the driver’s seat, eyeing him with a silent smile. “What?” he asked with a similar smirk, facing her when he saw her looking at him.
She shrugged her shoulders, shaking her head as she turned her attention forwards, still smiling. “Nothing…” she said, brushing off the thoughts she was thinking.
“Seriously though,” she said after a few moments of silence, glancing back at him. “Where are we going?” She asked, seeing the darkened beachside road in which they drove on, completely uninhibited by any cars or people.
“I dunno…” he said with a shrug, avoiding her eye contact.
She opened her mouth to speak, tilting her head for a moment, eyeing him oddly. “You didn’t even know where we were going to go?” She asked, trying to keep a straight face.
“No, but I just wanted to get away from everybody,” he said as he pulled off the main road.
“I’m wondering why I agreed to leave with you,” she said with a small sigh, raising her eyebrow at him as he tried to keep from smiling, parking the car.
“Well,” he said as he turned towards her, reaching his hand out to touch her leg gently. “Now we’re finally alone,” he added with a quick smile, leaning in to kiss her.
Natalie smiled against his lips for a moment when she felt them press against hers. She began to kiss him back with the same gentleness as he did knowing that in the back of both of their minds they had much greater things anticipated.
And before long, as Natalie figured it would be, the simple gesture turned into a full-blown make out session right in the front seats of the car. Bruno’s hands drifted across her thighs and up towards her stomach, sliding his hands under her shirt and taking it off over her head. He shifted his body closer to hers as she ran her hands over his back and chest, losing herself in the moment for a while.
Things soon became so heated that it wasn’t until a few minutes later that Natalie realized they were now in the backseat, with her sitting sideways on Bruno’s lap, their contact still not broken. From this position, they both managed to help each other strip from the rest of the clothing they wore.
Natalie shifted her weight over his, pushing his back down towards the seat until she lay on top of him. Bruno finally broke his lips from hers, his hands still drifting over her body. “Fuck, Natalie,” he said, halfway out of breath as he stared at her eyes. “I don’t know what you’re doing, but it’s really hot.”
Natalie felt herself laugh as she released her weight on top of him for a moment, her head sideways on his bare chest as she listened to his quick breathing which matched his equally fast heartbeat. She brought her head back up to kiss him again, hearing him slightly grunt out a breath of air when she moved across his body.
“…Natalie,” he partially groaned out, his voice shaky as he tried to keep his control, his eyes slightly fluttering. She leaned back from his mouth again, letting a small laugh escape hers when she opened her eyes to smile down at him, finding his urgency quite entertaining.
Bruno reached his hands around to her lower back, pulling her back in towards his lips, smiling against hers as he began to kiss her again.
“What are you smiling about?” she asked against his mouth, barely keeping any space between their lips. He ran his hands down to her sides, finding hers and entwining his fingers through hers, bringing them back up towards their faces.
“Pleaseee,” he smiled between soft kisses on her lips, trying to conceal the desperateness in his voice. He knew she was doing this on purpose and he absolutely hated it. “I can’t take this anymore,” he softly said with his eyes closed, letting out deep breaths.
“I know,” Natalie replied with a smirk, running her hands down his sides suddenly, touching between his legs which caused him to flinch at her abrupt movement. She brought her hands back up before she moved her entire body down his, lightly grazing over the skin on his stomach as she moved past it, causing him to let out another shaky breath, closing his eyes.
Things led to others, and soon after, Natalie found her own back against the seat, her hands tightly holding onto his shoulders above her. Her eyes were squeezed tightly shut as she slightly bit into his shoulder, her knuckles white as she gripped on both sides of him. Fuck, she thought at his movements, trying her best not to cry out in pain. A small pain struck through her body which caused a single tear to escape from the corner of her tightly closed eye.
Bruno’s body weight fell onto hers, their breathing in sync as he looked down at her closed eyes. “You make me do bad things,” she said when she caught her breath, opening her eyes.
Bruno looked down at her again with a small twinkle in his eye. “I’m sorry,” he said, pulling himself up. Natalie grabbed her clothes from the floor, quickly throwing on her shirt. She pulled back her hair into a ponytail, deciding it just barely too messy to leave down.
“Now just watch Uncle Scott find out I left…” she said with a sigh, shaking her head, sort of angry at herself for agreeing to leave with Bruno.
“Maybe we should really go get food,” Bruno said as he tossed her jeans shorts to her. “Just to be safe,” he added, squeezing her hand for a second, giving her a quick kiss on the lips.
On Monday morning Natalie quickly sprinted out the doorway, running across her lawn. She slightly cringed in pain with each step she took, feeling her muscles ache slightly. That was such a stupid idea, she thought as she shook her head, biting her lips back in response to her burning calves. She opened the door of the backseat to Bruno’s car, tossing her bag in before hopping in herself.
Ryan sat up front in the passenger seat as he usually did on their way to school. Bruno turned down the music as Natalie slid across the seat, sitting in the middle. He glanced at her through the review mirror as he drove off, a small smile on his lips. “You look like you’re in a great mood today,” he said, smiling at the small scowl on her face.
Natalie let out a small groan, flopping back against the seat. “Ugh, my muscles hurt and I don’t know why I’m so sore today,” she said, rubbing her calf slightly.
“I bet I know why…” Ryan suddenly chimed in, turning to eye Bruno with a raised eyebrow.
“I bet I know too,” Bruno said with a laugh as he and Ryan exchanged glances and nods.
Natalie felt her face grow hot at this, causing her to shoot a glare at both of them. “I went running this morning,” she stated as they finally recollected themselves. “…And normally it doesn’t even bother me, but apparently today it did,” she added with another sigh, touching her leg gently.
“Mmhmm, you sure you’re sore from this morning?” Ryan simply said with the same smile, turning to look out the window.
“You guys are disgusting,” Natalie said in response to Ryan, knowing her statement was quite hypocritical. She could tell Bruno was trying not to laugh at her by the way he pressed his lips together, but she decided to just drop it.
“So you’re free from the ‘rents this week?” Ryan asked after a moment, turning to look at her with a smile.
“Party at Nat’s!” Bruno laughed out, looking at her again through the mirror.
“Only until Wednesday,” she replied, ignoring Bruno. “And I can’t really do much with that anyways since I have to watch Alexis and the twins,” she added, shrugging her shoulders. “Uncle Scott’s going to be home tomorrow night too…”
“Well that leaves tonight,” Bruno simply stated, eyeing her through the mirror.
“Yeah good luck with that,” she said, rolling her eyes. “Lex feels the need to tell my parents everything,” she emphasized, knowing that if she had even her friendsover, she’d be ratted out from her little sister.
“You can bring her with you to my house,” Bruno said with a happy expression. “I mean, I think Pres has always wanted a little sister to play with…” he said, sounding a little unsure.
Natalie shrugged her shoulders. “I don’t know,” she said honestly with a sigh. “I’ll see…”
“So that means ‘yes’,” Bruno simply stated, winking at her through the review mirror.
