Make sure you check out part one too!
Kurt drove along the river, the cool air from the water chilling the night even more. Jayme held onto him tighter, burying her face in his back and weaving her hands under his leather jacket for warmth. She loved the smell of the leather and the butter soft feel of it against her skin.
Kurt’s muscles jumped as Jayme explored his stomach. The motorcycle slowed briefly before Kurt hit the gas and they took off, leaving Jayme clutching to him instead of teasing him.
When he started to slow down again Jayme looked around. She smiled to herself as the sign for the airport came into view. She’d always loved sitting off the road near the end of the runway and watching planes take off and land.
Kurt drove by her usual turn off and Jayme wondered if he knew another place until he pulled into long term parking. Once in a parking space, Kurt turned off the engine and removed his helmet. “Are you ready?”
“Ready for what? Why are we at the airport?”
Kurt winked and said, “You wanted crazy. Let’s go.”
Jayme took his offered hand and let him lead her into the airport. He approached a ticket counter and said, “We need the two cheapest tickets leaving tonight.”
“What?” Jayme asked. She thought he was honestly crazy and was starting to think twice about being there with him.
The ticket agent looked equally confused. “Um, where would you like to go?”
“Anywhere. It’s our first date and I’m going to make sure it’s one she never forgets because it’ll be her last first date.”
“That’s the sweetest thing I’ve ever heard. Let’s see, we have a flight to Miami in thirty minutes or to Chicago in forty minutes. They’re the same price.”
“What do you think?” Kurt asked Jayme who was still gaping at him.
“Are you serious about this?”
“Absolutely. It’ll be fun. I’ve never been to either one so let’s go. We’ll come home tomorrow if you want or in a couple of days. Whenever you need to be back at work.”
“This is crazy,” Jayme mumbled to herself.
Kurt grinned at her and cupped her chin in his hands. He brushed his thumb over her lower lip and said, “God I want to kiss you. I’m trying to wait until we’re in the air though. But you need to choose. Where do you want to go tonight?”
Jayme blushed and shook her head. “Chicago. Pizza sounds good right now.”
Kurt nodded as if she made perfect sense. “Chicago it is.”
They made their way through the airport and waited with the other passengers for their flight to board. Kurt let Jayme have the window seat on the plane and they held hands during take-off. In the sky, surrounded by stars and hundreds of other passengers, Jayme leaned into Kurt. “I will never forget this.”
“Neither will I,” Kurt whispered, a breath away from Jayme.
His fingers twirled a lock of her hair. He sucked in a breath, watching her as her eyes drifted closed. They both knew it was coming, both ached for it, and with the perfect crazy setting…
Kurt touched his lips to Jayme’s. The first touch was tender and soft, like a soft breeze blowing over them. The sparks Jayme had been expecting lit her up and she hummed her approval of their kiss. Kurt’s fingers wove through her hair and he tilted his head to the side to cover more of her mouth.
Jayme felt the slow burn of desire deep inside. Her lips parted under Kurt’s and their tongues touched tentatively, tasting, teasing, learning each other. All thoughts rushed from her head and Jayme surrendered to the feel of Kurt.
His other hand rested on her hip and her hands fisted in his shirt. The muscles she’d explored on the motorcycle teased her and she took advantage of the darkened interior of the plane to slip her hands under his dress shirt to feel him.
His skin was warm. He moaned against her lips, making them tingle with the vibration, as she worked her way across his body. His fingers found the edge of her sweater and brushed against her bare skin. She nearly jumped at the contact, but Kurt anchored her with his lips.
“You are crazy,” he whispered against her lips.
Jayme laughed and nodded in agreement.
They held each other and kissed for what felt like hours. Their initial exploration continued as much as the plane would allow. By the time they landed in Chicago both were on edge and ready to find a hotel room. Once they got off the plane Kurt found a hotel shuttle to take them somewhere for the night.
“I don’t have any clean clothes. Or a toothbrush. This really is crazy.”
Kurt laughed as he pulled Jayme into the hotel. “We’ll take care of everything tomorrow.”
He asked for a room and complimentary toiletry packets for both of them then led Jayme to their room. She started to get nervous as they got in the elevator. Was she really going to spend the night with a man she barely knew. Hell, she realized she didn’t even know his last name.
Kurt let them into the room and tossed their toiletry packets into the bathroom before leading Jayme into the room. She stared at the king sized bed staring back at her and thought she was going to have a panic attack.
Jayme paced the room, trying to figure out what she was going to do. She didn’t have the money to buy a flight home. She was crazy for ever thinking this was a good idea. Now she was in a hotel room with a man she didn’t know and he thought they were about to have sex. Jayme could get raped and killed and no one would ever know. She was crazy, and it was going to be the last thing she ever did.
Kurt stepped in front of her and stopped her pacing. He ran his hands up and down her arms and forced her to focus on him. “What happened? What changed? You’re freaking out. What did I do?”
“I can’t do this. This is nuts. I’m not this woman. I don’t go out with men I don’t know. I don’t vanish in the middle of the night. And I don’t sleep with strangers.”
Kurt pulled her to the edge of the bed and made her sit. He knelt in front of her, putting him slightly below eye level. “Nothing is going to happen tonight. Call someone and tell them exactly where you are. Give them my work information, you know where I work. Tell them anything and everything you want. Then get to know me. I brought you here because I thought it would be fun. I’m not trying to have you flip out. And I promise you, nothing will happen. In the morning we can head straight home or we can enjoy the weekend. Whatever you want.”
Jayme looked at Kurt, trying to understand him, to make sense of everything he was telling her. And for the first time in a long time, she felt safe.
What will Jayme do? Is she going to give Kurt a real chance? Is Kurt as nice as he seems?
