“What are we gonna tell them?” Ben asked ask his lips left mine for a moment, they trailed down my neck and towards my collarbone.
“We’re going to tell them I got lost.” I managed to get out between my breaths. I finally placed my hands on his shoulders and gently pushed him away. “Ben-“
“Is it wrong to say I don’t want to go to lunch?” He asked.
“We need to go to lunch, if we take too long someone will find out.”
“Probably Gwil, he’s the smart one.” Ben spoke before taking both of my hands and giving me another kiss.
“Then let’s not keep them waiting.”
“But I’ve missed you,”
“I missed you too. You can come to my hotel room later.” I told him and he grinned.
“Okay.” I spoke leaving Joe’s trailer, with Ben a few moments behind me. He placed his hand on the small of my back, turning me around and leading me towards the right direction of the exit.
“Can we do lunch or are you going to be touching me the entire time?” I finally asked.
“I can’t help myself.” He spoke. He had been like this only a couple of times before. Both of them were when he had come to New York to visit. It was almost like if he would stop, I would disappear. He took his hand from the small of my back and placed it in his pocket, it was then that I saw my brother and the other boys.
“Finally!” Joe exclaimed, “What took you so long?”
“I got lost.” I shrugged. “I thought we were meeting at the entrance where I came in, Ben found me wandering about.” I spoke and they nodded.
“Now that we’re all here. Let’s eat.” Joe said and began to lead us down the street. I didn’t know if any of them believed the story, but I knew that if we didn’t tell them we would have to be careful. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to tell my brother, but since we had an 11-year age difference, I felt awkward telling him about my life in that way. That, and he was already an established actor when I was little. It was only a few years ago, when he realized I was no longer 5 years old, that we had gotten closer.
“How was your flight in?” I heard Rami ask.
“It wasn’t too bad, I was able to sleep on it, which I appreciated.” I explained. “But I’m sure it will catch up to me eventually.” I followed the boys into a small restaurant and I took a seat at the booth. I slid in first, then Joe. Ben slid in across from me and Rami next to him, and Gwil at the end.
“So what do you do for a living?” Ben asked, already knowing the answer.
“I’m a kindergarten teacher.” I told him with a smile. “I love it. There was talk about me teaching third grade, or preschool next year, but I’m not sure either of those will come through.” He nodded at the new information.
“Those are quite different areas.” Gwil spoke.
“Yeah, very different. Arts and crafts and songs or math and vocabulary.” I laughed.
“If you had a preference, what would you take?” Came Rami’s question.
“I would like to stay in kindergarten, but I would choose preschool.” I spoke. “A lot of younger kids need a support system, and I think that a good foundation for everything starts in kindergarten and preschool. I personally think they are the most important grades.”
I glanced over at Ben and he gave me a smile. I had given him a similar rant on our second date. That time, I was more embarrassed than I was tonight. He had simply asked a question and my answer was more than expected, I knew it. But he just let me talk about how important kindergarten was and smiled. At the end I apologized but he simply shook my head and called it adorable.
“Look at my sister molding young minds.” Joe spoke and I shook my head.
“It’s nothing really. I mean acting is a cool job.” I spoke, feeling a leg from across the table coming across and touching mine. I waited until the conversation drifted from me to look at him. Ben gave me a smug grin and didn’t move his leg.
This man would be the death of me I swear.
A waitress soon came by and took our order. We ate and chatted, I got to know more about the boys and their background. Gwil’s was new to me, I knew about Rami from Joe speaking about him from the show the Pacific they were on. Ben’s I already knew, but he was a good sport about telling me anyways.
A while later we were back on set, I had gotten my things from Joe’s trailer and made my way to the hotel. I felt awkward standing there on set. Joe assured me that I could watch and it wouldn’t be awkward, but it felt awkward, so I told him I was tired and I’d meet him at the hotel.
I took a cab to the hotel and checked into my room. Once I was settled I pulled out my phone and sent a text to Ben.
[text: Ben] I’m in room 813, come find me later. I got two keys so you can have one.
I laid down on the bed and felt my phone vibrate.
[text: y/n] You can count on it, love
I smiled to myself before letting my eyes close and sleep consume me.
I woke up to a banging on my door. I rolled over and glanced at the clock on my nightstand, it read 6pm. “Shit,” I cursed to myself and got out of bed opening the door.
“Fuck you’re adorable.” Ben spoke with a smile. I looked to the left and found myself looking at my reflection in the mirror. I would not consider myself adorable in the moment, my eyes were full of sleep and my hair looked as if it hadn’t been brushed through in days. He looked down the hallways both ways before stepping inside of my room. I closed the door behind him.
“We’re going to dinner in an hour. Joe said he’d text you but when you didn’t respond to mine either I figured you had fallen asleep.” He explained and I nodded rubbing my eyes.
“You don’t have to go tonight, you’re probably exhausted.”
“I mean I would be too after flying across the ocean to get here. Really, you don’t have to come with us. I want you there, but you know I always want you by my side”
“You can do whatever you’d like. I can come by after dinner.”
“I want you to fuck me in the shower before we go.” I finally spoke. I could see him instantly relax. He closed the gap between us and lifted me up. I wrapped my legs around his waist.
“As you wish.” He spoke before bringing his lips to mine.
