Tuesday Tales – Nail
Hi and welcome to Tuesday Tales! This week’s word prompt is “nail”. We’re back with Reese and Lily in Between the Shelves.
The rest of the ride was silent but the tension between them was thick. Lily buried herself closer to Reese to escape it. It wasn’t anger. She knew the tension anger caused. She had felt it multiple times when Rose, her little sister, and her would fight. Or she had felt it frequently with her father. His overbearingness wasn’t to protect her from the riffraff that prowled around Braden. It was to protect his precious reputation. Sometimes being the preacher’s daughter was just too much to take.
No. This kind of tension left a dull burning ache in her belly that only Reese could fix. Part of her hoped he would soon.
Reese parked the truck and stepped out, offering his hand to help Lily down from the cab. She clung tight to him as they walked into the restaurant. Memorabilia from several sports teams were nailed to the wood paneled walls. The waitress showed them to a booth along the wall, setting the menus on either side of the table. As she walked away, Reese slid them on the same side. “Don’t get me wrong, Lilybug. I could stare at you all night. But I don’t want to look at you. I want to feel you. I want to taste you. I bet you taste far better than their pizza.”
Lily shuddered at his words. The thought of being touched and tasted by Reese completely melted her into a puddle of goo. She slid into the booth, planting herself into the vinyl seat. He slipped in beside her until his thigh was pressed tight against hers. To insure there was no space, he gripped her leg and tugged it against him. Her gasp was swallowed up by a kiss, the kind of kiss she only saw in the movies. His tongue invaded her mouth, teasing hers to play. Lily had absolutely no experience with public displays of affection. The way Reese was going, by the end of the meal she would happily let him do her right there in the booth.
