“No panties?” he whispered. 
I smiled wickedly, “I told you, you would not get into my panties, I never said anything about my jeans!”  He started to laugh and lifted me up, still straddling him, carrying me with my legs wrapped around his waist to his bedroom.
His room was all cleaned up when we entered, I guess he knew he would have a guest this evening, or at least was hoping for a guest.  He sat me down on the edge of the bed leaning over to kiss me. His breath was hot, my pulse was rushing through me, and he pushed me up the bed and lay down on his side next to me.  Running his fingers along my arms, across my stomach, and down the sides my thighs, goose bumps running along my skin.  He turned to his night stand and turned on his iPod, music was surrounding us. 
“I am not really a fan of thumping hip hop music,” I said. 
“Don’t worry it is a mix playlist, it will change, I think your favorite Tim McGraw is coming up.”
My eyes were looking down and I couldn’t help but notice his large erection in his shorts.
“See something interesting down there?” he asked me.  I licked my lips, his breathing hitched.
“Everything about you is interesting, but right now, I feel bad that I left you high and dry this afternoon.” I said.
Pushing Grant down on his back, I got on top, straddling him.  I leaned down and kissed his lips with slow methodical kisses.  My hands in his hair, I moved my lips down around his chin along his jaw line and sucked on each earlobe just enough to feel his hands tighten around my thighs.  Scooting down his body I began to lift his shirt up, exposing his chest and ribs, tan and completely mouthwatering.

“Grant, I have to go,” I told him.

“No, please talk to me, will you talk to me… tell me how you feel.”

I am dying right here on the patio.

“What do you want me to tell you, that all is forgiven and we can be together?”

“Is that an option?” he asked me. I laughed a little.

“It is going to take more than one phone call asking for me to forgive you for it to be an option,” I told him.

Read an excerpt:
He pressed his forehead on mine, “I have something important to talk to you about, I know you are going to be upset with me.”
I had already been upset lately about our relationship constantly feeling as if at any moment things would begin to break down, separating us.  Not that anything had happened, just some inner part of my brain and heart knew time was running out.
I didn’t say anything, the look in my eyes said it all, he knew I was scared.
“My internship, well it is starting soon, and…”
I could feel the lump in my throat getting bigger and tears welling in my eyes.  I wanted to yell at him to “spit it out already.”  I didn’t say anything.
Grant continued, “I am not going to be able to go with you to Jade’s wedding.”  He said it very softly, sorrow in his voice.  He was looking at me, straight in the eyes.
I sat up and pushed him away from me.  I didn’t know what to say, I was furious, I was sad, and I was terribly hurt.  I could feel the ache in my heart returning and the tears start coming down my face.  This is why he came out to see me this weekend, it was to pacify me, knowing we wouldn’t be together in June.
“What… why… didn’t you ask for the time off?”  I asked my voice laced with sadness.
“I did, but they said there was a new project starting and I would be a part of the team handling it.  Sydney, there is more I need to tell you.”
I was standing with my back to him, while he was still sitting on my bed.  The ache in my heart, weakening me.  “God, what else?” is all I thought.
Not turning to look at him, quietly, I asked, “What is it Grant, just tell me.”
“The project it is…it is not in New York…it is overseas.”
