Chapter 3

I was in heaven. Waking up with Julia this morning had been beyond wonderful. After some closed-mouth kissing, we got out of bed and she made a quick trip to her apartment to collect the books and clothes that she’d need while she was staying with me. When she came back she helped me make breakfast as best she could, and managed to only burn the bacon a little. In all fairness, it was partly my fault because I kept distracting her with kisses and “accidental” touching of her breasts. And I may have rubbed up against her from behind—just a few times. Finally, she told me in her usual colorful way to either back off or do something about it. Since she seemed like she was starving, I opted to keep my hands to myself.

I didn't mind, though. Spending the whole morning with Julia was like opening the door to a whole new world, one that I had been denied access to before. We were like a real couple: we talked, we ate, we kissed. We even read the paper together—after she was done teasing me about the fact that I still got a newspaper delivered instead of reading it online. In a word, it was perfect.

After cleaning up, I retreated to the living room to read while Julia worked on a term paper in my office. We had agreed to have lunch together in a few hours and I was already looking forward to it. The thought that she was just two doors away made me giddy. She was really staying here!

I started reading and was surprised when the door opened and Julia sauntered in slowly. She had changed her clothes and now she was wearing a short, checkered skirt that I remembered seeing on her in class.

I always hated that skirt. Now I actually like it.

The difference was that now I was allowed to look at her amazing legs and even touch them. I realized with perfect clarity that the animosity I’d felt for her before was nothing but frustration on my part.

Wow. I always liked her. I just didn’t know it at the time.

This would be the perfect time to reveal my epiphany to Julia—if I could be certain that she felt the same. Then we’d laugh at how silly I’d been, and she’d kiss me before telling me that she’d loved me all along, too.

That wasn’t the reality of our situation, though. I had no idea if she was developing deeper feelings for me, or was just upset about the loss of her grandfather. Still, I wasn’t about to let that bring me down. Julia was here with me now; it wasn’t a dream or a fantasy. I knew she felt something for me, because here she was, dressed in a sexy outfit, seeking me out.

Just be cool. Or at least try.

"Shouldn't you be studying?" I asked, lowering my book. She gave me an innocent smile, walking aimlessly around the room, picking up objects at random and putting them down again.
