A different kind of friendship (part 3)

vinesLegolas didn’t come back. Thranduil sent a few elf’s to search for his son but they came back empty-handed. All night he thought about where Legolas could had went. Not only to the next morning, he finally realised where. Since Legolas horse was gone, there was only one place. It’s was time to meet the enemy.

Thranduil took his best elfs with him and they rode to Erebor. When they got there, it looked empty. As they got closer, a dwarf looked over the wall and saw them coming. He quickly disappeared. In a moment the doors to the mountain opened and 5 dwarves came out with their weapons ready. One of the dwarves, that was probably the head dwarf, lifted his axe higher.

“Who enters my kingdom without permission?” The dwarf raised angrily his voice
“This is King Thranduil. He doesn’t need permission” One of the elf said
“What is your business that you risk your life by coming here?” The dwarf was still angry
“You have something he wants back”
“Can’t he speak for himself or is he too shy?” The dwarf laughed and the others laughed with him

Thranduil looked angry at him and stepped closer with his elk.
“Give me back my son?” He raises his voice
“Your son? We don’t have your son”
“Where is Gloin? He’s behind this shambles”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about. There is no one named like that”
“If you’re not obeying my commands, you’ll regretting it” Thranduil was getting mad
The elfs lifted their bows and arrows at the dwarves. The dwarves lifted their weapons at the elfs in defends. They stared at each other harshly.

One dwarf stepped out from the back. He looked younger than the other dwarves. But yet he was no youngster. He wasn’t as defiant as the others. He kept his axe low.

“I am Gloin. I do not have your son. But coming here was a big mistake from your part. Stealing our gold is one thing, but accusing us from taking your son, is unforgivable” He said calmly

Legolas and Gimli had been out in the forest practising. When they get back to Erebor, they have heard disagreements outside the mountain. They had come back from the backdoor. It was a door that only Gimli knew. It was clear what the disagreement was all about. Legolas had to stop it. Also Gimli thought so. This fight had gone long enough.

Legolas climbed up the stairs to the stone wall and looked down.
“Stop this nonsense. It has gone too far. I don’t know why this years of fighting is still going on. But now it’s time to stop” He yelled

The dwarves and the elfs looked up from the ground. They were all puzzled. Gimli stood by his friend up on the wall.

“You’re a liar Gloin, son of Gróin. You do have my son” Thranduil yelled angry at Gloin

“He does not” Legolas answered calmly “I’m here because I want to”
“Come home at once. Let’s talk about this” Thranduil looked up at his son
“No. If I can become friends with a dwarf so can anybody. It doesn’t matter what race it is. Everyone can get along. We have more in common than any of you could ever imagine. There will be a time when we all need each other. Where will your allies then stand?”
“You are too young to understand. Dwarves can not be trusted. Let’s go home. This is not a place to argue”
“I understand more than you think”

“Gimli, what is going on?” Gloin interrupted their conversation “Do you stand by these words?”
“Yes father. Everything Legolas says is true. There must be a limit somewhere. Someone must take a stand and it might just be me and my friend Legolas”

The elfs and the dwarves were speechless. But Thranduil was stubborn. He didn’t like this one bit.
“This is all a waste of time. I want what’s mine” He raised his sword and pointed it towards the dwarfs

Legolas lifted his bow and arrow to aim.
“Father, if you don’t lay your sword down, I will be forced to shoot you” He was determined

Thranduil didn’t believe him. He moved closer with his elk but an arrow landed just a few inches from his feet. The elk startled and threw him off so he fell on the ground. Slowly he stood up and looked at his son surprised. Legolas had put a new arrow in his bow and aimed at him again. He wanted to prove he meant business. The others put their weapons down and realised that this hate between the races had strained relationships needlessly. Even a stubborn Thranduil swallowed his pride.

That day both the elfs and the dwarves learned that any friendship is precious. It all began when a young elf and a young dwarf started a different kind of friendship.

One course of love (part 13)


Chapter 13

Leia tried to concentrate but all she could think about was the evening ahead. She had decided she would lose her virginity. She wanted it to be as perfect as possible. She wasn’t nervous at all. She knew she was in good hands. She kept looking at Richard. She was amazed how he could shut everything out. If he only knew what she had decided. Instead of listening she thought about what to wear. The whole time he didn’t look at her even if she kept staring at him. She didn’t take any notes and yet he didn’t look at her. When the class was finally over, she and Nadia took their time. They had decided Nadia would wait outside the classroom to keep a lookout. Richard was standing by his desk collecting his things. There were still other students left in the classroom. They kept talking to each other. Leia wished they would leave already. She had packed her things and so had Nadia. The girls talked to each other. When the other students finally left, the girls also pretended to leave.
“Leia, could you stay for a minute. It’s about your assignment” Richard looked up
She stopped and waited for the others to leave, including Nadia who closed the door behind her.
“What assignment is that?” Leia smiled
“Actually it’s my assignment” He gets closer to her “If ‘we’ll see’ is a ‘yes’”
“What does the assignment contain?” She looked in his eyes and dropped her bag on the floor
“I guess that’s a yes then” He touched her hair “My assignment is to please you the best I can”
“I’m warning you. Just because I’ve never had a cock inside me, doesn’t mean I don’t know what I like” She wrapped her arms around his neck
“I should punish you for language like that” He smiled
“What are you gonna do? Make me wait even longer for yours?”
“Oh Leia you really know how to talk” He groaned and kissed her lips
She ran her fingers through his hair. Their kisses got more passionate. She made him walk backwards until they reached the front desk. He leaned on the edge of it while she sat on his lap facing him. He moved his hands across her back and down to her behind. There was a knock on the door but they were so into each other they didn’t hear it.

Outside Nadia saw the janitor approaching the classroom. She cleared her throat.
“Oh there’s still someone here” He said when he got there
“My friend is doing a test” She raised her voice so they would hear inside the classroom
The janitor looked puzzled at her.
“I’ll come back later” He said and walked pass
Nadia knocked again when he was gone.

“Did you hear that?” Richard broke the kiss
“Mm” She murmured and kept kissing
He stopped responding and looked at his wrist watch.
“Let’s continue elsewhere” He pushed her away gently
Disappointed she got off him. She noticed the bulge through his pants.
“Are you sure you can wait that long?” She smiled and touched him there
“Please don’t that” He grunted and took her hand away
Looking at him in that state, she knew she’s made the right choice. Their age difference made it even better. It didn’t matter now what she would wear. They planned what to do next. She took her bag from the floor and opened the classroom door without looking back.

“Took you long enough. The janitor was just here” Nadia said when Leia got out
“Sorry about that” Leia smiled “Change of plan. Let’s go to this address”
Nadia took the note she gave her. She took her bag from the floor and they leave the building. They got into their car and drove to the road. Leia kept smiling while looking out of the window. After driving a while, Nadia looked her way.
“Are you nervous?”
“Not at all” Leia smiled at her
“Do you need anything?”
“No I don’t think so” She shook her head
“You know what I mean”
“Protection. I got that covered”
“Good. Never have sex without it”
“Of course” Leia looked out of the window again
Soon they arrived to a suburban area. There were houses every 50 yards apart and every one was in a different color. They got to a bungalow with brown bricks. It had a driveway and in front of the house a grass lawn. Nadia parked the car on the street.
“Here we are” She said and stopped the engine
“It’s now or never”
“Have fun. Call me later so I can pick you up”
“No need. I can manage” Leia smiled
“OK. Don’t be late for work”
Leia took her bag and stepped out, closing the door behind. Nadia drove away. Leia looked up to the house while walking on the lawn. She sat on the stairs to wait. It was getting darker so the street lights went on. Richard promised he would be there in 20 minutes but it was already past that. She was about to call when he drove to the driveway.
“Sorry you had to wait but I was held up” He said when he stepped out of the car
He was there now and that was all that mattered.

Chapter 25

Lee has just stepped out of the elevator and have heard Mandy’s last sentence. He gets closer to her and kisses her neck from behind. Annette look despised at him. She didn’t like this situation at all. What was even worse, Mandy seemed to like it. He stops and looks at Annette.

“Hi, you must be Mandy’s boss and friend. Hi I’m…” He’s about to shake her hand but she interrupts him

“I know who you are” She quickly looks at him “Mandy, remember what to do” She’s about to get to her room

“Leaving already? What a shame. I don’t even know your name. Mandy never tells me these things” He says to her and then smiles at Mandy

“Annette” She gives him a fake smile and then leaves

“Nice to meet you” He shouts after her “Wow she’s serious”

Mandy is looking in her computer. She really had to start working. Since Max was away, she had to do some of his work too. Lee bends back down and breathe warm air from his mouth into her neck. He opens her blouse and lays his hand inside it and inside the right side of her bra. He massages her breast.

“I missed this. Your beautiful and erotic breasts” He whispers aroused in her right ear

She didn’t have time for this.

“What are you doing here anyway? Weren’t you supposed to be somewhere?” She tries not be affected by his touch

“That’s done. I want you” He continues

“For what? It’s only 9.30 and I got work to do” She tries to wiggle her out of it

“It’s never too early for sex. Just a quick one in the bathroom” He licks her ear while stimulating her nipple

“Oh Lee” She moans “I would but there’s people here”

“Let them watch” He grunts in her ear

She grabs his hand away from her breast and turns her chair so she faces his groin. For a moment she forgets where she is. The bulge in his pants is distracting her. She keeps looking at it.

“Tempting, isn’t it?” He looks down at her for a moment and looks up again “Ah Annette she was just about to start”

Startled she turns around but no one is there. He just laughs.

“Damn you. Don’t you dare” She looks upset at him

“Can’t you get a joke?”

“That’s not funny”

“Speaking of her. Do you think the reason she’s so serious is because she hasn’t got any in a while” He looks to the door to her room that is closed

“You leave her alone. I know what you’re thinking”

“No you don’t. I didn’t mean me you naughty girl” He smiles at her and sits down on the edge of her desk “I meant someone else. I have this friend that is desperate to get laid”

“As desperate as you then” She smiles but he didn’t find it amusing

He was getting serious again. Like she wasn’t allowed to joke.

“Not as desperate as you were last night. Do you even remember what you did?”

At this rate she wouldn’t get any work done. She remembered what Annette had said earlier about not telling him she knew he had lied. She wouldn’t but she was curious of how he would react if she did.

“Will it affect my future?”

“In what way?”

“Let’s say, if I go back to Ben, would he still see me as the same person?”

“But you’re not. You’re with me and it will stay that way” He looks seriously at her

“Theoretically, would he?”

“What game is this?” He says upset

“Just asking”

“All right. If you did, which is a big if, then no. Because I got evidence and when I’ll show it, he’ll never want to see you again”

“What evidence is this?”

He stands up. He takes his mobile from his jacket pocket and sits back again. He looks through it and shows her a few photos.

“You took photos of us” She looks upset at him

“No just you. So if you go back to him, I’ll send him these”

“That’s blackmail”

“Not if you stay with me”

“What if I don’t?”

“Then I’m gonna be very disappointed. Why would you want to leave anyway? I’ll give you everything you need and best of all, hot and steamy sex. You can do what you do on the photos and in whatever place you want. Beside there’s a lot of positions were haven’t tried yet. And let’s face it, no one goes down on me like you do” He licks his lips while touching hers

She moves her chair closer to him and he spreads his legs so she can come between them. She takes his hand and licks his fingertips one by one while they look at each other. Luckily no one was coming or going to the floor. His fingers in her mouth, she moves both of her hands across his inner thighs and up to his groin. It makes him take a deep breath. The moist in his pants was coming through the thin fabric of his pants. Soon he would come on her desk if she didn’t stop. What was with him and underwear? On the date he insisted to wear them but on other times he didn’t. She moves her hands away and stands up. She wraps her arms around his neck and looks in his eyes. His arms around her waist they kiss passionately.

“If you wait outside your car, I’m gonna give you the suck of your life” She breaks the kiss and whispers in his ear “And I swallow”

He sighs.

“How long must I wait?” He looks in her eyes

“In 30 minutes” She gives him a kiss

“Or we could do it right here” He tries to opens his zip on his pants

“OK 10 minutes. But in your car” She takes his hand away before he does

“Not a minute longer” He gives her a kiss

She moves away from him and he steps down from her desk. He covers his bulge with his jacket as much as he can. While he walks to the elevator she looks at him. She realized what a mess she was in. The photo proved how far he would go. Maybe it was for the best that she would break up with Ben for good. After this he would definitely end it himself. At the elevator Lee looks at her and smiles. She bites her lower lip. She was aroused and he knew it too.

Chapter 24

When Mandy gets up to her floor, Annette meets her by her desk. She looked upset. Mandy apologizes for being late but that didn’t calm her friend down.
“If you’re gonna be late, you should call at once. I was supposed to give you a lift but you weren’t home. I tried to call but you didn’t answer. You must have good explanation” Annette says angry
“Calm down. I just wasn’t home. I overslept at a friend’s house”
“At Max?”
“No, why?” Mandy was surprised
“Apparently he overslept too. But he didn’t say you were there” Annette calms down
“With Max? Come on. He got a family. I would never” She was appalled
“He’s your friend. I didn’t mean it that way”
“Where is he?” Mandy sits by her desk
“At home. He said he didn’t feel well”
“Mr. Healthy is ill? That’s new”
“So where were you if you weren’t at Max?”
“I went to a restaurant last night and I got drunk. I don’t remember much” Mandy puts her purse in her drawer in her desk
“No with a friend” She close the drawer and look up at Annette
“You never drink that much. I know what you become. Is this friend a guy and does Ben know him?”
“Yeah your boyfriend”
“I know who. Apparently I’ve left him”
“When?” Annette is surprised
“A week ago but I don’t remember I did”
Annette was puzzled. Had it really happened? She couldn’t believe it.
“Who said that?”
“My friend”
Doubting she looks at Mandy.
“Is this friend called Lee by any chance?”
“Could be” Mandy looks away
“Mandy, he’s your stalker. He’s lying to you. Can’t you see?” She sits down on the edge of the desk
She’s confused.
“I don’t understand”
“He gets you drunk and then makes up a story that you left Ben. Do you even know where he is?”
“No I don’t”
“He’s in London for a month” She looks at her thinking “You really don’t remember”
“No” Mandy shakes her head
“Awe poor you. I knew things like this would happen” She hugs her friend
“You mean he’s lying? I had a feeling something was up”
“If Ben hears about this he’s gonna be so mad. We must do something before he gets back. We need a plan”
“No plan. I’m gonna confront that bastard” Mandy says angry and stands up
“No, he should not find out you know. Who knows what he’ll do. You have to make him believe you don’t know anything” Annette stands up and touches Mandy’s right shoulder

Calmed down she sits back in her chair.
“I can’t believe I slept with this guy but he was so gently. Especially after he forced me twice. After that he was so nice to me. And boy he’s good” Mandy kept babbling and doesn’t see the shock on Annette’s face “And then he pays me by telling me these lies. I could just strangle him” She gets angry again
“Wait a minute. He raped you? And then you sleep with him? Just hold your horses. I can’t believe what I’m hearing” She’s appalled and sits back on the desk
Mandy realized what she just had confessed and looks at her.
“I said too much” She opens her computer
“No no, this should not be pushed a side. He should pay for his crimes. He should not get away with it. You need to tell the police” Annette puts her hand on her shoulder again
“Let’s not be hasty. There’s no proof. Come to think of it, maybe I did like it. I admit it did hurt but not as much as I thought”
“Do you know what you’re saying? He has got you Mandy. You don’t even realize it yourself. He lies to you and you get angry. But then you take it back” She says in disbelief
“I’m still upset. I hate liars. Even if they’re as sexy as he is”
They’re so busy talking they don’t realize they have been overheard.
“What do I see, two beautiful woman by a desk. I must have died and gone to heaven. One of them I’ve had and one I could try”

Chapter 23

At 6 am Mandy wakes up not knowing where she was. She tries to sit up but lays back down. She had a slightly headache. The king-sized bed didn’t look familiar. It had lavender colored cotton sheets and beige pillows. There was no door in the bedroom so the light from outside was really bright. She squint her eyes to get used to it. The bed was messy. She looks inside the duvet and sees she didn’t have anything on. Then she remembered where she had been and with who. She starts to panic. She sits up in the bed and holds her head. It was hurting. She didn’t see her clothes anywhere expect her shoes on the side of the bed. She had no memory what happened after the restaurant. She wraps the duvet around her and gets out of bed. She didn’t know what the time was either. She gets to the living room. The sun from the big window is hurting her eyes. She sees her clothes on the floor.

“Good morning”

Startled she looks up. Lee was already fully dressed. He’s sitting by the counter in the open kitchen, drinking coffee and looking through a newspaper. She picks up her clothes and is about to go back to the bedroom.

“Where are you going?” He gets to her

“I have to go home”

“Home? You are home”

“What?” She’s puzzled

“You live here. For a week already. Don’t you remember?”

“No” She shakes her head

“You left your boyfriend and moved here”

“No I didn’t. You’re pulling my leg” She doubts

“You really did. You said you loved me and showed me how much”

She wasn’t really sure if it was true.

“I have to get to work” She walks towards the bedroom

The duvet is on the floor so he steps on it so it falls down her body which leaves her bare. He gets closer and wraps his arms around her waist from behind. He kisses her left ear.

“Let’s stay here. I’ll help you remember” He whispers

Something wasn’t right. She wouldn’t move in with someone just like that. He was either lying or trying to fool her. He loses his grip when she turns around.

“If I lived here I would remember” She picks the duvet from the floor

“Then why are you here if you didn’t?”

“I don’t know. If I don’t leave now I’ll be late for work” She takes her clothes and gets to the bedroom with the duvet around her

She lays the clothes on the bed. There’s a wardrobe beside the bed. She looks in it but hers wasn’t there. If she lived there, where were her clothes? She gets back to the living room. He has sat back by the counter. He looks up and smiles.

“Where are my clothes then?”

“You really don’t remember. What was in that wine?”

“I wouldn’t ask would I?” She says upset

“You’re not a morning person, are you?” He smirks

“If you’re not telling me right now, you got another thing coming”

“What’s that then?” He stands up and gets closer to her

“This is not a joke. Why can’t you tell me?” She was getting fed up with this

“All right. Let’s just say you left in a hurry”

“What is that supposed to mean? If I don’t leave now I’ll be late”

He tries to take the duvet off her but she holds it tightly.

“If you stayed you wouldn’t need clothes” He looks in her eyes

“I don’t have time for this” She’s about to leave

“Just a quick one” He grabs her arm and gives her a passionate kiss

Her headache disappears for a moment. His soft wet kiss could take any pain away. She could almost give in. As he moves his hand across the duvet, she pushes him away.

“If I don’t leave now I have to stay overtime”

“You’re not much fun sober” He says disappointed

“I need some clothes. I can’t wear these ones”

“Let’s hope your boyfriend is not home. Or should I say ex”

She ignores it and gets back to the bedroom to put her clothes on. When she’s ready she gets to the bathroom. There’s no time for a shower. She would use the one at the office. One look in the mirror and she gets to the living room. Her purse lies on the couch.

“Do you have a painkiller?” She asks when she sees him by the window looking out

He was quiet and kept looking out in the horizon.

“Did you hear me?”

“Sorry what did you say?” He looks her way

“A painkiller”

“No sorry. You have to suffer” He walks pass her and gets to the kitchen

“What’s wrong with you?” She looks in her purse and sees Annette had called

It was 10 past 7 already. She would call her later. When she looks up, Lee was gone. She had to get to work and he was acting like a child. She could order a cab but she didn’t know the address. In a moment he gets back from the bedroom. He didn’t say anything. If she really had left Ben, which she still couldn’t understand, why she did it for this one? If her memory just would come back. Alcohol really didn’t suit her. He gets to the front door to open it. He had changed his clothes from his dark blue suit to a light gray one. One thing was sure. He looked damn fine. She did remember how gentle he could be. When they get to his car that was parked outside on the parking lot, they get inside.

The whole trip to her former home, they didn’t speak. She had to come up with a plan what to tell Annette. It would be a little difficult since she didn’t remember much. They get to the house and while he waits outside. When she steps inside it didn’t look like she’d been away for a week. She didn’t think much about it. She had to get to work. She takes her clothes off in the bedroom and decides to take a quick shower. She would be very late but she felt sweaty. She takes a suitcase from the closet after the shower. Or all she could carry. She loved clothes so she had a lot of them. She finds painkillers in the cabinet in the bathroom and then she brushes her teeth. It was also strange why she didn’t have a toothbrush where she lived now. It made her even more suspicious about what Lee had told her.

She sees a picture of her and Ben on the night stand. After putting a long-sleeved blue blouse and a light brown skirt with white shoes, she closes the suitcase. She sits down on the bed and looks at the photo. It was taken on a beach in Miami where they attended a wedding. She looked so happy. Where did that all go? Ben was the love of her life and now it was over. A tear appeared on her cheek. She wipes it off with her index finger. She sits up and takes her suitcase. She quickly calls Annette before leaving the house. Lee has got impatient. He leans against the car on the passenger’s side, looking at the time on his mobile. The sun was warming the air. A hotter weather was finally arriving after a cooler period.

“Took you long enough. Hard to say goodbye?” He looks up

“Sorry I took a shower. Let’s go” She gets to the car and opens the backdoor to put her suitcase on the back seat

He gets inside while she does too.

“I can’t wait all day. I need to be somewhere” He starts the engine

“I’m sorry. We should have left earlier”

“It was you who took a shower” He drives to the street

“Sorry about that” She looks out of the window

She could hear annoyance in his voice.

“It’s your fault if I’ll be late” He takes a glimpse at her

“Well so will I. Don’t think you’re the only one” She looks back at him

“You’re friends with your boss but I’m gonna be late worse things can happen”

“Alright” She didn’t want to say more

Soon they’re at the security company. He drops her off and drives away. It was time for Mandy to meet the consequences.
