I woke up the next morning alone. I looked around, I don't think he's in the shower, I don't hear anything. I get out of bed, throw on the complimentary silk robe and opened the living room doors.
"Babe?" no answer "Bruno?" still nothing. "must be out." I walked back in the bed room area and saw a note:
Good Morning my Sleeping Beauty. I'm sorry I couldn't be there when you woke up, but I was called into the studio. No last night was not a one night stand, hit it and quit it, hump and dump, or a smash then pass. I promise I will be back today.
I laughed at his letter. I hopped in the shower and put my silk robe back on when I got out.
knock knock knock
"Coming!" I opened the door. "Can I help you?" I asked to some lady.
"Hi, I'm Alice, 3:30 for Nicholle Hernandez?"
"Excuse me?" It was nice hearing my new last name.
"Your husband Peter pre-paid you to have a personal spa day today."
"Aww. Alright come on in." I smiled and stepped to the side. She wheeled in a table. "He asked me to give this to you." She handed me a fortune cookie. I cracked it open and read the fortune:
Enjoy it.. Thought I'd help you become less sore from last night! -B
"Are you ready?" She asked me.
"Yes." I grabbed my phone and laid down on her table. I untied my robe and slid my arms out. She handed me a towel and turned around. I quickly threw my robe on the bed and placed the towel against my but.
"Do you mind in-scents and music?"
"Not at all, but could I trouble you to crack the patio door, it's a little stuffy in here."
"Of course." She said and opened the door then lit her in-scents and turned on some calming nature sounds. First she started my neck ad upper back, next my middle to lower back, then my legs and feet. My phone started buzzing, I looked at it, I didn't recognize the number.
'How's ur massage?' it read
'um...who is this??'
'oh hey you(: it's amazing, thank you!'
'only the best for my baby'
'(: man I would make it up to u later but I'm too sore thanks to SOMEONE..'
'I'm not apologizing, I loved it and I know you don't regret it girl! Admit it, ur sweet on ya boi'
'hmm, maybe..glad to know last night wasn't a hump then dump(:'
'hahahahaha I should be back in a few minutes. Mind if the guys come over?'
'as long as they don't mind my nakedness.'
'girl u somethin else'
'u love me'
'can't deny it. C u in ten minutes.'
'I'm counting seconds.' I put my phone under my pillow and laid there as she massaged my calfs and feet.
"I'm ready for some nakedness!" Bruno yelled walking in the door.
"Follow the music." A few seconds later his bright smiling face was at the door. He looked completely different in the morning. I couldn't help but stare at him, I was star struck. He bent down on his knees and kissed me. Our tongues intertwined. When he pulled away from me I was still starring at him.
"What?" He asked.
"It’s just sinking in who you are and what you look like."
"Well don't I just feel famous."
"I feel uncomfortable."
"You’re Bruno Mars!"
"Oh my god you are Bruno Mars!! I thought I recognized your voice!" Alice squealed.
"Could you excuse me and my wife for a moment please?"
"Of course." She got up, smiling the whole time, she walked out and closed the doors slightly behind her them squealed again when she saw the rest of his friends.
"What's really wrong?" He asked me.
"I just told you." I said ducking my head in my pillow.
"Sit up." He covered my chest and helped me sit up. "Look at me." He said. I peaked at him.
"Seeing you right now, in the day light-"
"You better not be calling me ugly!" He said.
"Never I just, now I KNOW for sure you are who you say and appear to be. You look completely different from the last time I saw you."
"Well angles have everything to do with it. Last time you saw me I was way up high and bumpin back and forth." He said with a smile, it made me smile remembering our night. "For instance, you look different from last night."
"Like you said, angle and plus I was covered in sweat."
"And you were beautiful, but in the daylight I can see just how radiant you really are, your taking my breath away all over again."
"You make it easy falling in love with you." I said not worrying about what he said back.
"I've been in love with you since I first laid eyes on you when we were in the car."
"When were we in the car together?"
"Phil sped out in front of your friend Loba, I think her name is."
"That was you, wasn't it. I told them that guy looked like Bruno, but they just laughed at how much I was obsessed with you."
"I still am but I know you don't wanna keep talkin about it." His stomach made a noise. "Go eat." I said and nodded backwards to the kitchen.
"Can I have a hug?" He asked me.
"Mhm." I nodded smiling. He wrapped his arms around my waist I wrapped my arms around his neck. He squeezed me tightly.
"You give amazing hugs." I said softly.
"You're an amazing person to hug." He said back, he rocked us slightly side to side.
"God I wish I wasn't so sore right now." I said quietly hoping he wouldn't hear me.
"Oou yous a freak!"
"You know what you do to me." I said pulling back so I could look him in the face.
He licked his lips. "Sore or not, tomorrow you're mine." I said slowly.
"Damn." He said just how he says it in Lost. "Well I'll let you get back to relaxing."
"Alright." I laid back down, took off my robe and he helped me put the towel back on my butt. He kissed the skin right above my butt.
"Boy you better stop."
"Or...? You gonna pounce on me, let's face it that wouldn't be a punishment for anyone, except maybe our neighbors that have to hear how loud you are." He said walking away. I starred at him in disbelief.
"You just think your so damn funny!" He laughed while opening the door. Alice walked back in and Bruno sat on the couch directly in my view, but was behind a half wall so his friends couldn't see him.
She went back to rubbing my ankles. My feet and that area have always been a 'sensitive' area, so of course I was making some facial expressions. I look to my right and see Bruno starring at me. He has his pants undone and he's headed for his boxers.
I shot him a look meaning 'what are you doing?!'
He shrugged his shoulders.
'You're sick!' I scrunched up my nose and nodded towards him.
She hit a specific point in my foot. "Ooouuuh!" I moaned out loud, loudly. I saw him start in his movements.
"I take it since he didn't tell you he ordered you a massage he didn't tell you which ones he picked out."
"Correct..." I said suspiciously. I was looking at Bruno the whole time as she was explaining this next massage to me.
"It releases all the sexual tension in your body and will usually end in a climax." She finished.
"What?!" I asked looking at Bruno.
"A gift for the both of us." He said.
She started rubbing the soles of my feet and I started moaning. It was completely involuntary! I did not want to be moaning while this stranger girl is rubbin me up, let alone with his friends out there. Bruno getting off to this didn't help much either!
"I need you to roll on your back." she said. I got on my back, she grabbed another towel to go over my boobs so now my legs, arms, and stomach are showing. She moved to the part right under my toes.
"OH!" I said loudly. I saw him twitching. My breathing became uneven and we were looking at each other the whole time. She hit a special spot in my foot and my back arched forward, I closed my eyes. When I opened them I saw his speed quickened. I smiled and that was it for him. He slowed tremendously and relaxed. Soon after I was done too.
"Now is time for a break." She said politely.
"Thank you." I said embarrassed. I sat up and swung my feet over the edge. She handed me a different robe, this one was black pure 100% silk with a dragon on it. It stopped right under my kooka and the sleeves flared out by my elbows. I walked out into the living room. Bruno got up buttoned his pants and hugged me.
"Thank you." We said to each other at the same time. We pulled apart he looked at my robe.
"Damn do you own NO clothes?!" He asked me.
"I'm gonna have arthritis by the end of the night."
"You know, my mouths not sore." I whispered.
"Really?" He asked in disbelief.
"It's not sore so I can eat now!" I said smiling.
"You're such a tease." He said.
"She gets it from you." One of his friends said.
"I'm sorry I forgot you guys were here." I said embarrassed.
"You're so adorable." Bruno said to me.
"Make me a hot pocket!" I said excitedly.
"You're so random!" He laughed and walked in the kitchen area. I sat down on the couch and tried to make sure my kooka wasn't showing. I heard the microwave go off so I hopped up and sprinted to the kitchen. I grabbed mine Bruno took his.
"You're supposed to let those sit for two minutes." Someone said.
"I'm the rebel that doesn't let my food stand in the microwave for two minutes, and gets burned every time!" I said smiling, I took a bite and burned the shit outta my mouth.
"Oww AHH!!" I screamed and jumped up, my robe flew up with it. "That's hot." I said childishly smiling. "Can I have a sip?" I asked looking at the vanilla milkshake on the table.
"Yeah." Phil said. I bent over, unknowingly exposing my boobs to his friend and everything else to Bruno, and took two sips. I licked my lips once and sat next to Bruno.
"You missed some white stuff on your mouth." He said.
"How badly you wish it was from you." I smiled. "You're being rude anyways." I said to him.
"Who the fuck are they?!" I asked with a laugh.
"OH! well you know Philip Lawrence, that's Phredley Brown, Kenji Chan, Jamareo Artis & Eric Hernandez."
"Nice to meet you all." I said. They all said individual versions of 'hi'.
I finished my hot pocket and grabbed a bottle of water. I went back in my room to get the rest of the spa day. She gave me a facial, manicure, pedicure and a scalp massage. Everything felt so good and relaxing.
"Hey Alice do you mind me asking you a question?"
"Not at all...Mrs. Hernandez. She said smiling. I smiled once.
"How much do you get paid to work here and how often do you work here?"
"$25.00 a day, three days a week if I'm lucky."
"Wow I don't mean to be rude, but that's not enough!" I said with a smile. "How would you like to be my personal, scratch that, our personal masseuse? $100.00 per massage every Tuesday and Sunday?"
"Are you serious?" She asked excitedly. I looked at Bruno. I'd have to talk to him, but I'm sure I can persuade him rather quickly." I said smiling.
"Oh my god yes!" She said with a chuckle. "Thank you!"
"Don't worry about it, you deserve it!" I smiled.
"Well we are finished for today."
"Give me your number and I'll call you soon to set everything up."
"Alright." I got her number.
"Bye." I smiled and nodded.
"Peace to the middle east!" Bruno said smiling letting her out.
"Man you got $200.00 a week to just shell out?"
"No, but you do!" I smiled.
"Women, ALWAYS tryna spend yo cash." Phil said.
"What else are we made for?" I asked.
"Cooking." Bruno said in an obvious tone.
"Oh really? I'll remember that when you come crawling over to my side of the bed tonight when you get lonely. I won't know what to do, since all I'm made to do is cook. I'll get up and make you a sandwich." I said and crossed my arms.
"Sassy!" He said and sat next to Eric.
“So, what’s on the agenda for tonight?” I asked sitting on the opposite couch.
“Jam session.” Jamareo said.
“Awesome, can I stay?”
“NO! it’s not like it’s your hotel room or anything.” Bruno said.
“Alright smartass!” I said throwing a pillow at him. “I didn’t know if I would be allowed to hear anything new.”
“You’re family, you hear everything.”
“Alright.” They started messing around with some different chords and keys on the keyboard. I went in the bedroom and put on a zebra hoodie and black shorts. I walked back out. I grabbed a wild grape Smirnoff on Ice and let my hair down sitting on the couch. I know it’s low key alcohol, but they taste so good and I can’t resist.
“Why do girls do that?” Phil asked me.
“Wear hoodies with shorts.”
“Yeah, I always see that! Are you hot or are you cold? Make up your mind.” Bruno said.
“Both. I’m comfortable right now.” I sat my bottle down and stood up. “Shorts...” I moved around a little, “because I can move comfortably, and it’s nice out. Hoodie...” I grabbed the neck hole and tugged on it, “because it’s breezy out and it keeps me comfortable.” I said and wrapped my arms around myself, doing a self hug.
“Alright, but some girls do it when it’s like 100 degrees outside.” Eric started.
“Or even like 20 degrees.” Bruno finished.
“I’ve done it in both scenarios.” I said sitting and taking a sip.
“This is like a complete sausage fest, I need to female it up.” I said and sat my bottle down. I went out into the hallway and closed the door behind me. I walked down the long hallway, I bumped into some guy.
“Sorry.” I said.
“My fault.” He replied. I tried to walk away, but he grabbed my arm. “Wait a second.” He said. “I’m Sean.”
“I’m not interested.”
“Unique name, what’s it’s origin?”
“Is there something you want?” I asked getting irritated.
“Your name and possibly your phone number.”
“Your not getting either.” I said and tried to walk away.
“I saw you dancing the other night, are you by the hour?” He said and rubbed my cheek, I smacked his hand away.
“Excuse me?!” I said getting loud.
“What’s goin’ on?” Bruno said suddenly next to me. He saw the guy had his hand on me. He grabbed his hand and pulled it off.
“Dude back off, I only need her for an hour, you can pay to get with her when I’m done, or maybe we could all go at once?”
“She’s not a hooker, she’s my wife!” He said and punched the guy right in the face.
“Bruno stop!” I yelled trying to pull him off. The guy was fighting back, he cut me with something sharp.
“Ah!” I said tumbling back a little. I ran back in the room, they all stood when they saw blood on my face.
“Hurry go get him!” I yelled. They all bolted for the door. I walked out and watched as they tried to pull him off.
“Get the fuck out of here! Don’t let me see you again!” Bruno yelled as the guy walked away. I ran over to Bruno, he was still wired up, he didn’t know it was me so he spun around quickly glaring at me. I never seen him like this, given we only met yesterday, but he doesn’t seem like the type of person to be like this. He looked at me and calmed down. I put a hand on either side of his face.
“Are you okay?” He asked me.
“Don’t worry about me, look at your eye! C’mon we need ice.”
“Are you okay?” He asked again.
“I’m fine.” I said reassuring him. I took him in the bathroom and he sat down on the bench that was in there. I turned on the cold water, ran a washcloth under it and put it on his right eye.
“See what I go through for you?” He said quietly, sweetly.
“Thank you.” I said walking over with peroxide. I grabbed the washcloth, poured some on it and put it on his lip, then his eyebrow, then his cheek. He flinched a little at each contact.
“Sorry, it’s not supposed to burn much.”
“I don’t think I need a doc to check these, right?”
“Maybe, I’m pretty sure he was using a knife.”
“Well definitely get yours checked.”
“Don’t be a big bad wolf. You wont be any use to me if you get an infection or something.”
“All I am is a pretty face to you?”
“No, pretty body too.” I said and gave him a kiss. I pulled out my phone.
“Bring me some Neosporin, and hurry.” I said when Loba picked up.
“I’ll go get ice, sit here.”
“Yes doctor.” He smiled, then winced as his cuts opened. I went in the freezer and grabbed an ice pack. I went back in the bathroom and put it on his eye.
He took in a sharp breath. “I like you as a nurse, I’ll have to get hurt more often. If this was my life movie, right now is when they’d play grenade.” He started humming the song. “I’ll throw my hand on a blade for ya.” He sang.
“Or your face..” I said with a small smile.
“You know I’d do anything for you.” He spoke this instead of singing it. I looked down. “You know that, right?” He asked again.
