The God And His Bride - Episode 9
I walk slowly into the room, looking around with wide eyes.
"It's fine to be comfortable in my house Star, it's not going to bite" He says, throwing me a wink before pulling his jacket.
To say dating Jeter has been eye opening will be an understatement, We've been dating for a month now and it's been pure bliss.
"Baby, I have red wine, do you want some?" He asks and I nod.
After our first date he had taken me to an arcade on our second, an amusement park on our third and for our fourth an intalian restaurant.
He's a mystery and not once, not once has he asked me anything about my supposed supernatural powers.
We have gone on double dates with Mila and her banker, he's spoken to daddy on the phone but he's met mom by chance when we were grocery shopping, he said he does his grocery shopping at the supermarket near ours but I think he just drove down because he knew he was likely going to see me there on a Saturday morning.
He hasn't spoken to or seen Liang and that's the only thorn in my side, it's gonna be real bad if Liang doesn't like him because I do.
I blow my hair out of the way as I move to the window to stare out, I feel his hands around my waist and I lean my body into his.
"You don't have to be nervous, we don't have to do anything" He says, inaccurately reading my mood, he thinks I'm this way because I'm scared he might want to make out but no, I'm actually scared because the relationship is going too well, things don't go this well for me.
"It's not that Jet" I say and he rests his chin on my head.
"Well, you can't blame me, it must be really hard for you to hold back seeing that you are in the same room with my body and you know my body is a masterpiece." He says, making a joke.
"You are not serious" I say, he gently turns me around, stroking my hair and tracing my face with his eyes.
"Can I kiss you Star?" He asks and I know that's what's coming, this is the bane of my life, I've never kissed a guy, I've never done anything, not because I don't want to but because I can't.
I haven't found any guy who doesn't get hurt when they try to be close to me in that way.
"Jet, I haven't.. I haven't done.

. I don't know how to kiss" I say and he smiles with his eyes.
"Let me be your guide" He says before bending his head to kiss me, I stiffen, waiting for him to pull away, and eventually he does, pulls away that is, holding his lip and frowning.
"Did.. Did you.. Did you bite me?" He asks, wiping blood off his lips and I shake my head.
"Is this one of the things you can't tell me? One of the mystical things?" He asks and I nod, blood suffusing my chheks.
For the first time in my life I curse whatever circumstances surrounding my birth that has made me this way.
"Well, that's fine.." He says, flashing a smile, "It just means I have to try harder, do you know how much of a delight it would be trying to kiss you? I can only imagine the possibilities" He says and although I laugh at his antics, I begin to wonder why he's taking these things in stride.
"Well, can we watch a movie then? I just wanna be with you" He says and I nod.
"Yes, we can do that" I say and he nods, leading me to his giant sitting room and sliding in a movie, he pulls me into himself and we watch, after a while I settle and my mind wanders, I begin to think how this feels too good to be true.
The next morning we go to work together, I have 4 long shifts and I would be spending about 2 days in the hospital, it's a good thing I got some rest last night, after our movie which I slept halfway into he had brought me to his bed and true to form he hadn't tried to do anything, we just slept and I did so, like a baby.
I frown when I get down from the car, it just occurred to me that I didn't tell anyone I would be spending the night out, they know I wouldn't be having any shift so they must have wondered, I make a mental note to call home when I get to my office.
"Are you alright?" Jeter asks, stopping me in the middle of the underground parking lot to question me.
"Why? Do I look weird?"
"No, you frowned" He says, smoothing his hands down my brows, "Does it hurt anywhere? Do you want to call in sick?" He asks and I smile at how sweet he is being.
"Why are you smiling?" He asks, his eyes tracing my face before coming to my eyes.
"You are being very sweet right now" I says and his eyes startles before his lips curves in a smile.
"So, you are good?" He asks and I nod.
"I really feel like kissing you right now, but... Alas.. You know what we are gonna do? We are gonna get a stop watch and time how long exactly we can make out for" He says waggling his eyebrows as he leads me to the elevator.
I shake my head, when we eventually get to the Surgery floor, I see a familiar back standing by the nurses station.?
I turn around, pushing Jeter backwards and he looks startled and not moving.
How is this man this stiff, it's like he's planted to the ground, I find myself wondering.
"Star?" Liang asks from behind me and my eyes fall close.
I affect a quick smile, turning around around.
"Did you not see me?" He asks, though talking to me his eyes are on Jeter.
I change my position to stand in front of Jeter who doesn't want to have any of it, he gently moves me to the side and Liang follows the action.
Trying to act unaffected I ask.
"What are you doing here?"
"You didn't come home last night, I came to give you a change of... Are you going to introduce me?" He asks abruptly, lifting the case with him.
I sigh, this is not good.
"Liang, meet Jeter, Jeter my brother, Liang"
I say and so commences the battle of wills.
