Now ... back to our story...!
Beth's POV -
I don't know why, but I was feelin' very much rejected at the moment. I was bein' turned down for sex … and this would just be my second time. It just felt weird. I mean, I appreciated his caution; I suppose I should be grateful he's so thoughtful of the situation. But, right now I wish he wasn't …
"I guess …"
"We'll have the next couple of nights out on the road." He kissed my cheek and then a trail of kisses down the soft exposed skin on my neck. "And, we can still have fun tonight though …"
He has a point …
I knew he was bein' careful, but I couldn't help it. I just wanted to feel him again. Feel close to him like that. Last night was incredible … and I guess I just wanted to feel that again.
"Oh, yeah …? What'd ya have in mind?"
Daryl whispered in my ear.
"How bout I take care of you tonight." He sucked on my earlobe. "And, then we'll make sure we're prepared when we go out on this run. We'll have plenty of time while were out." He started to nip at my skin; sending chills down my spine. My eyes started to roll back in my head; his kisses were heaven. Goosebumps covered my skin. "How's that sound?"
Daryl continued to kiss my neck; down to my chest. He grabbed a hold of my shirt and I helped him as he pulled it up over my head, and then he quickly relieved me of my bra.
"Okay … tomorrow then? When we're out?"
Daryl had the sexiest smirk on his face. "Mmm, hmm …"
And, with that … it was on!
I couldn't help myself; I had to kiss those lips of his. I couldn't wait another moment. With all this build up, I was literally squirming beneath him. I reached up and grabbed a handful of his hair and pulled his face to mine, our lips crashed together. Letting my fingers trail down his neck, I gently tugged at his leather vest.
However much I loved him in it, I loved him even more when it was off.
"Take this off." I barely got the words out before our lips met again. I started to attack the buttons on his shirt; our kisses became deeper. "Take it all off."
As we hurriedly helped each other remove out clothes, we never took our eyes off each other. Daryl got on top of me and pulled the sheets up over us (as if that would be enough to hide us if anyone happened across my room right now). But, hey … it was somethin'. Daryl caressed and touched me like he'd done several times before; his fingers thankfully relievin' some of the ache and desire that had made me so snappy a bit earlier. I was like a puppet and he used his fingers to make me squirm; I found myself grindin' against his hand as the tension began to build and build inside of me. And, within minutes; he was makin' me cum with just his touch.
"I wanna make you cum too."
"Oh, yeah?" Daryl mumbled though his tight lipped smile as I rolled over on top of him, so now my body lay flat against him.
I sat up and straddled him; his hardened member was right between my legs – right between the folds of my skin. The ache returned between my legs and I could feel Daryl's hard length pulse in excitement; it's as if our bodies knew what they were supposed to do next.
I couldn't even think straight.
I wanted him; I needed him so bad.
I leaned down to kiss him and I could feel the engorged head of his penis as it seemingly teased me; every so often grazing my entrance.
Jesus! He was drivin' me crazy!
I was on fire inside! My breathin' became heavy; our kisses deeper. The ache grew in my stomach and started to grind against him. Our kisses were deep and passionate; I could feel the cool air as it hit the saliva he'd left behind on my neck. Every sense was heightened. I could smell Daryl's musky sweat … even his sweat was freakin' turnin' me on. It seemed with every moment that passed, the desire to have him inside of me only grew. I knew it was wrong, but somethin' wrong never felt so right in my life. I wanted him. I needed him.
Daryl ran his hands up my back and pulled my body down and held my tightly against his chest. He pulled away for a moment and looked into my eyes – just starin'. I could feel his hand as it slid down my side and onto my ass; he gently squeezed it. And, in doing so, he positioned himself right at my entrance. We just kept lookin' into each others eyes.
I loved him so much. There was nothin' else goin' through my mind. Nothin' else mattered anymore. Nothin'.
"I love you, Daryl. That's all that matters now."
Daryl just gazed back at me; his breathin' still heavy. In moments like this, I wished I knew what he was thinkin'.
We weren't sayin' anything … but we were. Our bodies were; our hearts were.
It's hard to explain. Maybe it was foolish? Maybe we weren't thinkin' clearly? But, when every day can be your last … holdin' back your feelin's just didn't make sense. Not anymore.
Daryl looked at me and grazed his fingertips along my lips. "God, you're beautiful, Beth." He kissed my lips where he'd just touched; gently sucking my bottom lip into his mouth for a moment.
With every breath his chest raised, moving me along with it as I lay there still on top of him. His one hand still on my back the other with a firm hold on my ass. He continued to just stare into my eyes, finally I felt his other hand reach down to my hip … and he slipped inside of me.
Daryl's head fell back onto the pillow; his eyes closed. With every thrust; moving himself deeper and deeper inside of me. I arched my back up a little and propped one of my arms up; I couldn't help but look my lover.
God, he's such a man … like in every sense of the word.
"Oh …!" I quietly moaned.
Daryl continued to rock his hip; pushing himself in and out of me. His eyes opened slowly; his eyelids heavy. "Love you, Beth."
"I love you." I breathily replied.
He hit the back of my cervix; he was so deep. I moaned louder as it hurt just a little.
"Shh …" Daryl reached up and pulled me back down on top of him and rolled us over. He was now on top of me. Daryl leaned down onto me; putting all his weight on me.
Oh, god … I love that.
I loved feelin' his entire body on mine; the weight of him pressin' into me. I just felt so dominated, I guess … like my man had total control of my body when he was on top of me. It was sendin' my body over the edge. My eyes shut tight as the beautiful tension began to build within me again; the achin' that begged to be released.
I could feel Daryl's hot breath on my skin, while he had his head buried in my neck. I wrapped my arms underneath his and held on tightly. My hands reached up around almost to the top of his shoulder; that I couldn't help but suck and kiss on … his muscles were definitely a weak spot for me. I bit down on his shoulder and Daryl didn't even flinch at the pain, but his breathin' was startin' to pick up, matching the pace of his thrusts.
He was gettin' close, I could tell.
"Tell me again, Daryl." I panted. "Tell me ya love me."
Daryl pulled away for a moment, just to look at me; his hand cupping my cheek.
"I love you, Beth." He paused. It looked like he was gettin' emotional. And, then slowly moved inside of me; hitting the core of me. "I love ya ... more than anythin'."
"Keep sayin' it."
I closed my eyes and Daryl kept whisperin' that he loved me in my ear. And, that's all it took. It felt as if my body was vibratin' as I came again; this time my entire body shook with each wave that pulsed through me. Inside and outside, from the top of my head to the tips of my toes; my body tingled everywhere!
As my body was still quaking from my orgasm; Daryl started kissin' me feverishly. His breathin' picked up and his started to really push deeper and deeper inside of me; faster and faster. I reached down and grabbed his ass and pulled him against me. Guess it was too much for him …
I looked up at him as he was on top of me; his face was tensed. I held him inside of me; I just wanted to feel him cum so badly.
"Oh, god!" He grunted and then his body shuddered; I could feel his hot seed fill me and then he fell down on top of me as he tried to catch his breath.
As he lay there, I held him close and gently caressed his back. I could feel him slide out of me; the warm fluid leaked out creating a sticky slickness between my thighs as Daryl rolled off of me.
"Shit!" He sighed; his hand reached up to his forehead, wiping the sweat from his face. "I … I shouldn't done that."
I leaned over and laid my head on his chest and wrapped my arm around him. I wanted to reassure him, since I knew he was probably gonna immediately start to over think things.
"Don't worry." I paused and squeezed him tighter. "It'll be fine, okay?"
He looked over at me; his eyebrows arched; questioning me. "Oh, yeah?"
"Yeah, I don't want ya to worry."
Daryl shook his head; his eyes shut closed tightly and he whispered under his breath. "Fuck!"
I sighed. I definitely didn't want him to take a turn to negative town, so I filled him in on my logic. I wanted him to know why I wasn't concerned - not one bit.
"We're gonna go to the pharmacy tomorrow, aren't we?"
Daryl slowly turned to look at me. "Yeah. Why?"
"We can just pick up this stuff. Maggie told me Glenn got it for Lori once."
"The mornin' after pill. It's just like takin' a couple of birth control pills. Its no big deal. It'll jus make me start my period now. That's all."
He shook his head; he looked worried still.
"Well, ya jus got this all figured out don't ya?"
Daryl's lips pursed; his eyes focused intently on mine. He was tryin' to play it cool, but I could see beneath it all - he was freakin' out a little.
He reached his other arm around me and pulled me close to him. "That was stupid, Beth."
"Yeah, stupid. We can't be doin' that shit. Its too risky. Can't be plannin' on havin' ya swallow a bunch a pills jus hopin' it'll work out."
Why was he doing this? We were on love - what does it matter anyways?
It wasn't like I was lookin' to get knocked up or nothin', but I wasn't gonna be all dramatic about it either.
"Please don't turn what we just did into a bad thing. I love you. " Daryl's gaze softened. I smiled, reached up and cupped his face; pulling him to mine. I kissed his lips softly before continuing. "Please don't worry, okay? Please?"
"Yeah." He nodded and looked back up at the ceiling and sighed. "Sure."
I propped myself up on my elbow and reached over and grabbed his face, so he was lookin' at me again.
"It's gonna be fine. We're gonna be fine. Alright?" I loved him, but he could be stubborn sometimes. I really didn't want him to worry about this. And, either way, we were in love, so I wasn't gonna worry bein' intimate with him - not ever! "Listen. Don't do that! Don't get all "Daryl" on me." I paused for a moment. " And, start lookin' at this as a bad thing. We're in love, Okay? It's never a bad thing."
Daryl tried to stop himself from smiling - it didn't work.
"I'm gettin' all Daryl on ya, am I?"
"Yes! You are."
His eyebrows arched as he questioned me. "So, you're not concerned? Not at all?"
"No." I paused. "I'm not concerned one bit. We could go out on this run and die tomorrow. I'm not ever gonna apologize for enjoyin' every second that we have together. Not ever!"
"Alright, alright. Damn. Jus calm down."
Oh ...? So, now I need to calm down ...? He's hilarious ...
"We'll get the pills and it'll be fine. Okay?" I leaned over and kissed him. "No matter what, it's you and me. We love each other, and that's all that matters." I was doin' my best to convince him. He seemed to be lightenin' up. "I mean, I enjoyed myself. So did you. Let's not ruin' it with worryin'."
He nodded in agreement. "Alright, Beth. I mean, you're the one who'd have to carry the baby not me …"
"Shut up!" I whispered. "That's not funny!"
He grabbed a hold of me and rolled me on top of him. "No. It's not funny."
"Whatever, Daryl." I paused and looked at him and he had the biggest smirk on his face. He was messin' with me now. "Ya love me?"
"Ya don't gotta keep askin'. Course I love ya."
"Alright then, that's all I need to know."
He smiled. I could tell he thought I was naive some times and maybe I was, but there weren't many things in this life to be happy about anymore. Daryl was my happiness; my chance at a real life and I wasn't worried bout this. I would never worry bout somethin' like this … not when it was with him.
Daryl stayed with me for the next couple of hours. We didn't talk about anythin' in particular, just pillow talk. I tried to ask him about the Council meeting, and he got real quiet; he said he'd talk to me about it when we got out on the road. He sounded a little upset, when I brought it up so I didn't push the issue the rest of the night. After a couple of hours, Daryl told me that it was gettin' late and we both should get some sleep. I watched as he dressed himself, and I couldn't help but stare. He was truly a beautiful man.
"Nothin'. Just admirin' the view."
"Hmpf." Daryl seemed amused by my observations. "You're a handful."
I shrugged my shoulders and smirked. "Yeah, but you like it."
"Suppose I do" Daryl leaned down and kissed me before headin' back to his cell for the night.
It didn't take long before I passed out and next thing I knew it was morning. The sun was just popping through the windows of the prison and I could hear people talkin' and scurryin' below in the common area. Finally, I heard a knock at my cell doorway.
"Hey, Beth." Daryl quietly greeted me.
"I'm loadin' the truck up. Get your shit together and bring it down."
"Okay." I smiled sweetly. "I'll get my shit together." I started to laugh so hard; I had a bad case of the giggles this morning. Daryl tried hard not to smile back, but I knew he couldn't resist. He finally cracked a smile and walked into my cell. I sat up in my bed and he quickly leaned down and kissed me. "Mornin' darlin'."
I smiled. "That's more like it." I kissed him again. "Can't jus come in here talkin' bout shit first thing in the mornin'."
"Mmm, hmm." He got up and walked back to the doorway. "Just get your things ready." He paused and tapped his hand on the door frame twice. "Alright then. I'll see ya down there?"
I couldn't help but smile playfully at him - he was bein' so serious. I nodded my head in agreement and quietly replied. "Of course. I won't be too long. Can't wait to get out on the road and, ya know?"
Daryl shook his head and smirked as he walked off. I quickly jumped out of bed and got ready. With my bags packed and bounded downstairs and out of the prison. I said my goodbyes to everyone: Daddy, Maggie, Judy, Rick, Carol. Glenn wasn't around, but I assumed he was probably with Daryl anyways. Daryl had decided to take one of the SUVs on this run; it was parked on the side of the prison. I found Daryl and Glenn already outside and they were packin' it with supplies and a few full and empty gas cans.
I tossed my bags on the ground. "Here ya go. All ready …!"
Glenn picked up my bags and loaded them in the back.
"Looks like you two are ready to go …" Glenn had his hands on his hips. "This run. Well, it shouldn't be hard." I snickered. I felt like every comment he was makin' was somehow sexual. "But, if you get yourself into a sticky situation." I giggled again. "Daryl here will take care of ya. He'll have your back."
Glenn patted Daryl on the back and I giggled again, as I replied.
"Oh, I know Glenn. I know Daryl will have my back. That's one thing that I know I can count on."
"Umm ... okay." Glenn's eyebrows furrowed; he looked seriously confused.
Daryl shot me a glare, basically tellin' me to knock it off. So, I did. But, I still found all of Glenn's comments to be somewhat sexual. Or, maybe it was just me this mornin' … maybe I just had sex on the brain. That was probably more likely – it was just me. I had a bad case of the giggles and everythin' just sounded sexual and funny as hell.
"Ya got everythin', Beth?"
I looked inside the SUV. My two bags were there, I had my gun with me … but there was somethin' else wasn't there? Somethin' else we should be bringin'? And then I remembered - condoms!
I need to go up to the guard tower and get some. We definitely condoms - lots of condoms!
"Actually, I'll be right back. There is somethin' else."
Daryl and Glenn had the hood of the SUV up; they were double checkin' the vehicle; makin' sure it was in good condition for the road.
"Alright, Beth. Hurry back though." Daryl motioned for me go quickly. I knew he wanted to get on the road as soon as possible, so I ran around the side of the prison and through the yard, finally, makin' my way to the tower. I bounded up the stairs to the tower and quickly rifled through Maggie and Glenn's bag. I grabbed a few condoms and stuffed them in my pocked and put the
Then, I thought to myself, "Is this really gonna be enough? Hmm ... probably not.
So, I grabbed a strip of 6 condoms and shoved them into my other pocket.
That should do it!
As I exited the tower, I literally ran right into Nick. I hit him so hard the impact actually knocked the air outta me.
"Jesus, Nick!" I caught by breath. "Ya scared me!"
"Sorry, Beth. Didn't mean to ..."
As I tried to walk by him, he reached out and quickly grabbed my arm. I looked around to see if anyone was around. But, the prison yard was empty - it was just me and him right now. He looked down at me intensely, which sent chills down my spine.
"I don't think you should go out there Beth. I don't think you should be goin' out on this supply run."
"Well, I appreciate your concern, but …"
Nick interrupted me. "It's not safe out there Beth."
"I'll be just fine. I'll be with Daryl." I paused and looked up at him. "Now I gotta go now, okay?" I tried to pry his hand off of me but I couldn't.
"Beth I don't want ya goin' …"
I snarled at him. "Well, thankfully, that isn't up to up to you."
He looked pissed.
"Seriously, Beth … why would ya put your life in the hands of that freakin' redneck! He can't take care of ya out there!"
"Nick." I paused. "I'm askin' ya nicely to let go of me."
"You shouldn't even be."
"Stop it, Nick! Just stop!" I hissed and then pried his hand off my arm. "If anyone saw ya right now … if Daryl saw ya." I shook my head. "Ya just gotta stop with all this, I'm not askin' ya - I'm tellin' ya."
The frustration in Nick's face turned to worry.
"I'm just concerned, Beth, that's all. I didn't mean for ya to take offense at it. I … I …"
This was seriously startin' to piss me off ... I was outta patience with Nick.
"Ya what, Nick?" I put both hands on my hips. "What is it?!"
Nick took another step towards me and reached his arms up and grabbed a hold of both my arms.
My eyes burned into his.
"I just gotta say one thing." Nick looked nervous; I could see the beads of sweat forming on his forehead.
I sighed. "Well, hurry up then. I gotta go!"
If Daryl saw this, he was gonna fuckin' kill him. I wasn't tryin' to be mean, I was tryin' to save his life.
"I …" He paused. "I love you, Beth."
What the hell did he just say?
My eyes widened and my mouth popped open. "What?!"
"I said I love you."
"Yeah, no. I heard what ya said, but … what?! Why would ya say that?"
He looked at me lovingly – something I certainly wasn't interested in. It made me feel real uncomfortable.
"I don't want you to go. And, I love you. I need you to know. I just needed to tell you."
"Okay, well, ya told me then."
He stood there silently. I don't know if he was waitin' for a reply or for me to return the sentiment.
Finally, I interrupted the silence. "Nick. I gotta go."
Nick let go of my arms; he seemed heartbroken. I could tell I'd hurt him. He'd hoped that maybe I felt something for him – anything. But, I didn't. I hadn't wanted to hurt him, but this whole thing
needed to stop – for his own good.
"I gotta go, okay? I'm sorry."
I started to run away from him and I didn't once look back. I just kept runnin'. Back to the SUV and back to my lover. Back to Daryl. I felt bad about Nick, but I was with Daryl now in every sense of the word and I couldn't worry bout hurtin' Nick's feelin's anymore. Maybe if I hurt him, he'd leave me alone and move on.
I reached the SUV and Daryl was alone and sittin' in the front seat.
"What took ya so long?"
I smiled and patted my pocket. "Just had to pick somethin' up."
Daryl shook his head. "Alright. Get your cute little ass in here. We gotta hit the road."
I jumped in the front seat and Daryl started up the SUV. We slowly made our way to the front gate where Nick and Glenn were standing; waiting to open the gates for us and close em behind us when we left. I could see Nick was upset; I just looked down at my hands that were clasped in my lap as they pulled the gate open. As we passed by, Daryl stopped the vehicle. Glenn was on my side.
"Alright you two. Keep an eye on each other. Make sure you do everything he says, okay?"
I looked over at Daryl and smiled. "Oh, I will. I'll do whatever he tells me to. Don't you worry bout me."
Daryl leaned over me to speak to Glenn. "Alright, brother. Hold down the fort while we're gone, okay?"
"You got it, Daryl."
As we drove by I didn't look at him, but I could see Nick outta the corner of my eye. I could also see that Nick and Daryl seemed to be glarin' at one another; the situation between these two was definitely a tinderbox that could go up at any minute. I really truly hoped that with what just happened, me bein' a bitch - I hoped this would be the end of it. For Nick's sake. If he's expelled from the prison, it's a good chance that it's a death sentence for him and his brother, Mike, who was a real nice guy. So, my fingers were crossed that this situation would be resolved upon our return.
And, in the meantime, Daryl and I would enjoy some alone time together and not have to worry bout makin' noise or anyone walkin' in on us. I was certainly lookin' forward to that. I was also feelin' somethin' else as we started off down the road.
I was feelin' anxious. Ya know? Like when ya feel somethin' sick in the pit of your stomach.
I was thinkin' bout last night. Bout the fact that we'd had sex like that last night. I was startin' to think about it a lot, actually. And, for the first time, I was startin' to worry. I was very much of the mindset of don't worry about anythin', just do whatever ya feel. But, in this case, I was now startin' to understand why Daryl had not wanted to have unprotected sex at first. He knew there would be this ... feeling after. That we'd be waiting. Anxiously waiting for the pill. For my period – for them both.
Geez ...! What'd I do? What'd we do?
My head was racin' a mile a minute. Daryl looked over at me and must've noticed the fact that I looked like a deer in headlights.
"Yeah, yeah …"
He nodded and we drove in silence for a few more minutes before I chimed in again. "Umm … Daryl?"
"Ya think we can go to the pharmacy first?"
Daryl laughed a little under his breath. "So, now you're worried, huh?"
"No. I mean, well … yes. I guess I am."
I hated to admit it, but he was right. I was worried now. And, every part of me that had wanted him, wanted to be with him, wanted to feel him inside of me … was now totally freaking out and screaming for me to get to the pharmacy and get those damned mornin' after pills.
"Yeah, we can go there first." He looked back at the road. "Told ya."
"Whatever. It's not like I have experience with this stuff, okay?"
"I know, but I told ya."
"Yeah, well, you were right, okay? Happy now?"
"No. You worryin' doesn't make me happy. And, I don't like worryin' either. So, we can't let that happen." I nodded in agreement and Daryl continued. "It's not a game and we should be more careful from here on out."
"I totally agree with you. Let's just get to that pharmacy already."
"There's one a couple hours out. W'll stop there."
He smiled and reached his hand over and set it on my thigh; I placed my hand on his, interlacing my fingers through his. I just kept starin' at the road and tried to calm the hell down.
We'll be fine! Just fine ...
I hope ...
END OF CHAPTER TWENTY-ONE: PART TWO
Hello ... everyone! So,as many of you predicted - Beth is a horny teenager and cannot be trusted in naked-like situations ... especially with Daryl Dixon. But, I mean ... can we really blame her? LOL And, Daryl ... well ... he's just a man ... there's only so much he's gonna be able to take before he gives in to the woman he loves. Your thoughts ...?
So … like it, love it, hate it ... let me know your thoughts on the chapter by taking a moment on your way out … I'd love to hear from you all :-D
Also, I've got questions for you …
QUESTION FOR MY READERS:
1. Beth and Daryl had an "Oops" moment and went ahead and did it even though they didn't have any protection – novice move, huh? But, I felt like it kind of fit them. Even though Daryl is responsible; he is a man ;) And, Beth is young and horny and hasn't ever had a "scare" and certainly wouldn't know what that really felt like – until she had one. So there!
2. Do you think he knocked her up? Lolz
3. And, what about Nick's admission … that he loves Beth? Pretty bold move on his part … do you think now that she's blown him off completely he'll leave her alone now?
** I've got Chapter Twenty-Two started ... So, as soon as this chapter gets 20 reviews - I'll get working on finishing up this chapter ;)
