“Pipe, let me in.”
“No. Go away, Ash, please.”
I can’t do it. I cannot look at Ashton and see the disappointment in her eyes. I just made out with her brother. With Bentley Sullivan. That’s not even the problem. The problem is that I’m not sorry. I’ve waited my entire life for that moment. Blame the whiskey, blame the fact that my boyfriend has been cheating on me, blame it on the fucking rain. I don’t care. It was fantastic, and lord help me but I want to do it again.
The moment he started flirting with me I knew he had no idea who I was. That stung a little, but when I realized this was my only opportunity for a moment as someone other than his little sister’s best friend, I took it. And fuck me if it wasn’t worth every minute I’m going to spend lying to my best friend telling her it was awful.
His lips are like soft caramels I felt myself melting into. The moment his tongue touched mine I could feel it all the way to my toes. Of course, it took an excellent detour in my panties along the way. I feel something on my foot and look down.
“What are you doing, Ashton?”
“Well, if you aren’t going to let me in, I’m going to just crawl on this disgusting bathroom floor and under the stall door to get to you. It’s really gross down here, I’m going to need to talk to Taylor about this. Eww, is that pee?”
I open the stall door and laugh at the ridiculousness of this moment.
“I don’t think its pee; this is the women’s restroom. Get up, that’s gross,” I say as I tug at her hands to pull her up. I see the sympathy in her eyes and realize I maybe had one too many shots tonight as I burst into tears.
Ash gathers me in her arms and is rubbing my back as she tries to reassure me that she’ll deal with her asshole brother and make sure he never pulls a stunt like that again. For some reason this sets me off even more. Of course, she thinks it is because I’m upset about Tony, upset Ben just gave me the best kiss of my life, and I’m drunk. She’s got one thing right – I’m drunk.
“Ash, I need to go home. I’m sorry. I’ll get a cab and I’ll call you in the morning.”
“I understand. Let me walk you out and make sure you’re okay.”
We stop by the bar to grab my phone and Taylor lets us know he already called a cab for me. I attempt to open the compartment on my phone case that holds my debit card when Taylor waves me off from paying. I let Ash guide me out of the bar and say a little prayer I won’t see Ben along the way. The wait for my cab is minimal and once I’m inside Ashton heads back in to work and I head home.
Bentley Sullivan. Even thinking his name makes me touch my lips. I cannot believe the direction this night took. I went to Country Road because Tony was, is, a cheating bastard and I needed my best friend and booze. I never expected to have one of my teenage fantasies come true. Then real life resurfaced and now I find myself drunk in the back of a cab driven by the man who used to be the crosswalk attendant when we were kids regaling me with stories of his own drunken nights. Fabulous.

Give me the occasional shot of tequila, a game of Truth or Dare, and I’ll do almost anything for that man.
