Undress Me (Part 6) – NSFW

“Night, mate!”

“Night!”

Jake tiredly bid Lewis at Stage Door a good night. The perishing night air hit him hard as the automatic doors slid open. He pulled up his jacket collar, his breath steamy as he rubbed his hands together and shoved them into his pockets. Snow had fallen heavily over the roads and pavements with more fat flakes falling from the black sky. There wasn’t a car or person in sight. He blew a warm puff of air, thanking God his flat was in walking distance.

“What do you mean you’re not going round there? How else am I supposed to get home this time of night?!”

A shrill voice round the corner caught his attention. As the conversation went on, she grew more panicked, almost on the verge of tears from the way her voice began to shake. He knew that voice. With a furrowed brow he turned the corner, finding Lily on her mobile, wrapped in a woollen coat and gloves, her pretty face under a knitted beret, stamping her feet to keep warm under a stone walled shelter.

“Lily?”

Lily turned round, huddled into her coat. She cast her eyes to the ground at Jake’s gaze, embarrassed by her predicament in front of him.

“So you’re telling me I can’t get there at all?” she said quietly. Over the phone, Jake heard a man’s stern voice. Lily heaved a defeated sigh, “Ok, thanks anyway.”

She hung up the phone and started looking for something on her phone, frantically tapping at the touchscreen.

“What’s wrong?” Jake stepped closer. Lily shook her head.

“No taxis I’ve spoke to will go around where I live. They say the snow’s too heavy that side of the city and people are having to abandon their cars. The snow’s caught everyone off guard, they weren’t expecting it to be so heavy to affect travel.”

“So you can’t get home?” He asked. Lily shook her head again, her mouth firmly pressed into a thin line as she typed.

“Nope.”

While she tried well to cover her upset, Jake could see panic darting in her eyes as her phone lit them up. She shivered as she typed, stamping her feet harder into the snow. More had begun to fall since Jake had been outside without any sign of lessening.

“Hey, come here…”

He wrapped an arm round her, bringing her in to his chest as he roughly rubbed her arms.

“Thank you…” her teeth chattered.

“What were you looking for anyway?”

Her head nuzzled instinctively into his chest and he felt it tighten. Gently, he drew her closer, rubbing his hands round her back. Lily’s belly somersaulted.

“A hotel nearby so I could at least have somewhere near to stay.”

“Lily, do you know how expensive that is?” Jake looked down at her. She huffed stubbornly into his coat.

“I know, but needs must!”

Jake’s legs had started to shiver. The longer they stayed out here, the more chance they had of catching a chill or cold. He couldn’t have her staying out here or alone in some hotel where they’d charge her extortionate amounts. Releasing his embrace, he took her hand.

“Come on.” Jake said as he started to walk. Lily’s brow furrowed.

“Come on where?”

“To my place. I only live five minutes away.”

“Jake,” Lily pulled against his hand, “Really, it’s fine. I can stay -”

“Lily.” Jake turned round to face her. His eyes were as firm as his voice, “I’m not having you out here in the cold on your own at night, and not in some hotel where they’ll charge you through the nose just so you can have a place to sleep. At least I’d know you’re safe.”

Lily’s big eyes searched over his face. He didn’t want to take no for an answer. The way his hand had warmly clasped around hers said so. Jake sighed heavily and stepped closer, taking her other hand in his.

“Look,” he murmured, “you don’t have to stay with me if you don’t want to. If you want to stay in a hotel, I can walk you there so I know you’re ok. I promise, there’s nothing in it -”

“No, I know that,” Lily replied. Did he think she thought he was going to try something if she stayed with him? Her heart sank at the thought. Yes, he may have been around the block a bit if the rumours were true, but he wasn’t a creeper. She’d been around enough of them to suss that out quickly. Jake heaved a breath of, what looked to be, relief.

“Good,” the corner of his lips tugged sombrely, “That was never my intention. Just thought it might save you some money and at least we both know you’re ok.”

Her lips tugged up in a sweet little smile, which he returned.

“Come on then,” she said, “Let me torment you for the night.”

Jake’s smile broadened across his cheeks. Tormenting him was the last thing she’d do. Squeezing both her hands, he began to lead her down the snow covered pavement.

“Come on, this way.” He took her bag, slinging it over his shoulder, “Five minutes and we’ll get you in the warm.”
