Club de Fleurs: Jenna Rose Nickol 2022/7/22 11:49:48

Kyle answered when he knocked on the door and Evan could tell he was too drunk to listen to anything. Making an excuse for knocking, he went to his own suite to make a plan. If Kyle and Jenna weren’t gonna see the light, he was going to find a way to make them.

The next morning, Evan woke with a plan in mind. Now to put it into effect. He would need the help of Sadie, Rachel, and Connie, but didn’t think that would be a problem. Making a few phone calls, he planned on meeting the girls for lunch to discuss his plan and see what they thought. He was a man with a mission, and Kyle and Jenna were that mission.

Sadie, Rachel and Connie all agreed with what Evan had planned and Connie made arrangements to come back into Denver the next weekend so they could put it into effect. Her being in town was a big part of the plan. Now to get Jenna and Kyle to cooperate.

Evan also talked to Dave, Dean and Craig, letting them all in on the plan. He was going to get Kyle and Jenna back together if it killed him. Anyone with eyes could see that those two were meant for each other, and neither one of them would be happy without the other.

Jenna was glad Evan took her home. She couldn’t stand being at the club without Kyle. Definitely, she was not going back. No way. No matter what. She would just have to find another place to hang out with the girls. Maybe they could just stay in and watch movies. That’s it, she’d buy a bunch of snacks and booze and have a girl’s night in at her place next weekend. Maybe Connie could come back then. Jenna was sad she hadn’t gotten to watch Dean and Connie’s demo, but she was sure she could get Sadie to tell her about it.

The next week went pretty quick. Kyle tried to call a couple of times, but Jenna ignored his calls. She just couldn’t deal with him. Then on Thursday, a knock came at her door. Not expecting anyone, she looked out the window and saw Kyle. Opening the door, she looked at him and said, “What do you want? I dropped all your things off at the club.”

“I know, thank you. You aren’t answering my calls and I wanted to make sure you are okay. Can I come in?”

“Well, you see I’m fine. Now leave. We have nothing left to say to each other. You said it all the night you left.”

“Please let me come in and talk. I just want to see how you are doing and talk.”

“No!” she yelled and tried to slam the door, but his foot was in it and he wouldn’t leave. “Kyle, I really don’t see any point in this. You wanted to move on, why drag something out that you don’t want? Unless you want to talk about getting back together, I really don’t see what we have to talk about.”

“Jenna, just let me in to talk. I miss you and dammit, I’m coming in!” Pushing his way through the door, he slammed and locked it behind him.

Jenna backed up and crossed her arms over her chest protectively. She had never seen Kyle like this and was a little scared. “What do you want, Kyle?”

“Oh fuck, Jenna, I just wanted to see you. I saw you with Evan at the club and you wouldn’t answer my calls and—”

“What I do and who I see really aren’t any of your business anymore. You decided that you needed to slow down and wanted some space. I was happy with the way things were going. You got what you wanted. I can’t help it if you’re not happy with it!”

“You’re right, I did say I wanted to slow down and that I thought things were going too fast. I moved back to the club to get some space. But that doesn’t mean that I still don’t want to be friends. I still want to see you and do things with you. I miss you and spending time with you.”

“Kyle, I tried to give you what you wanted. You wanted to back off, I backed off. You wanted space, I gave you space. You can’t have it both ways. I’m not a ‘friends with benefits’ kind of girl. I need more than that. I can’t play with you at the club then just walk away. I need more than that and, I thought we had something. You were the one who suggested looking for a house. Since those men took me, you haven’t wanted anything to do with me. I don’t know if you think I did something to encourage them or if you think I’m dirty because they touched and looked at me, but I can’t do this. Either we are together or we are not. You can’t have your cake and eat it, too.”

“Baby, I know you didn’t do anything to cause those men to take you, and I definitely don’t think you are dirty. It was all my fault for exposing you to them. If I hadn’t taken you to the club, they would have never hurt you. I don’t know what I want. I can’t keep you safe and don’t want to see you hurt again. You’ve been hurt twice since I came into your life and if it wasn’t for me, you wouldn’t have been. I can’t leave you alone, though. I long for you and dream of you at night. I can’t sleep without you in my arms. I drink too much trying not to think of you. Seeing you with Evan at the club made me want to deck him and turn you over my knee and spank your bottom red.” They had been standing to this point, and Kyle sat heavily down on the couch. Reaching up and grabbing Jenna, he pulled her down to his lap. Holding her tight, he bent his head to hers.

“Jenna, I know this is confusing. I’m confused, so how can I hope to make you understand? I want more than a ‘friends with benefits’ relationship also, but I’m scared. I don’t want you to get hurt and history is not with us. I don’t know what I’d do if something happened to you. There have been threats made against my family before. I don’t want to put you in that situation.”

“Kyle, no one can guarantee the safety of another person. We never know what the next minute is going to bring. Anything can happen. This isn’t just your decision. I should have a say in it. You can’t make all my choices for me.” Jenna was struggling to get up. Sitting in Kyle’s lap and having his arms around her was torture. If she didn’t get away from him, she didn’t know what would happen.

“Sit still! I can’t think with you wiggling like that.” Kyle just wanted to take Jenna right there on the couch. If she didn’t sit still, he wasn’t going to be able to control what happened.

“Let me down. We can talk without me sitting on your lap!”

“No, I like you here. I like the way you feel against me, I…oh, fuck it,” and he bent and took her mouth with his. At first, she struggled and fought him. After a few seconds, Jenna gave in and kissed him back. “Oh, baby, I want you so bad. Do you want me?”

“Kyle, we shouldn’t be doing this,” she answered, panting. She shouldn’t be letting this happen. If Kyle took her tonight, what did that mean for the future? But it felt so good. “Oh God, I’ve missed you and this so much. I…”

Kyle reached up and cupped her face. “No more words. Just feel.” Picking her up in his arms, he carried her to the bedroom. Laying her on the bed, he slowly undressed Jenna and then himself. He took her hands and placed them on the headboard. “Hold on and don’t let go. If you let go, I’ll have to punish you. Okay, baby?”

“Yes,” she breathed. Jenna knew this was a mistake, but at this point didn’t care.

“Now close your eyes and don’t open them until I tell you to.” And she did. She would do anything he asked her, forever. Why didn’t he know that?

Kyle crawled on to the bed and straddled Jenna. Leaning down, he brushed his lips over her forehead, across each eyelid, down the bridge of her nose, over each cheekbone to her lips. Tickling her lips with his, he teased them open. Jenna reached and threaded her fingers through his hair. “Uh-uh, baby, hands back on the headboard,” Kyle said, lifting his mouth from hers. He quickly flipped her over and gave her five hard swats on her butt. Flipping her back, Jenna placed her hands back where requested and Kyle went back to her mouth. Licking and nipping her lips until she opened for him, he then swept his tongue through her mouth, exploring her thoroughly.

Jenna moaned and arched up, looking for more. Kyle licked and kissed and nipped down her neck, across both collarbones, over her chest until he reached her nipples, licking round and round, not touching, drawing out her pleasure. Licking and nipping all around nipple, he finally took it and as much of her breast in his mouth as he could. Gently closing his teeth around the tissue, he pulled back, stretching her breast with him. Switching back and forth between breasts, Kyle continued this torture until Jenna thought she couldn’t stand it anymore. Lifting his mouth off of her with a “pop,” he licked and kissed his way over her stomach, stopping briefly at her belly button. Darting his tongue in it a couple times, he continued on to her mound.
