A Collaboration between Bron and Suzie
Howie began loosening up his vocal cords.
"Oh look, the
birthday boy is on time," Brian teased watching Nick saunter
into the studio.
happen," Kevin chirped in.
"Ha Ha. Very
funny." Nick gave Brian a manly hug.
A.J. and Howie chimed
in their 'Happy Birthdays'.
"Well, I guess
Angelina didn't spend the night," Kevin said it more as
a statement than asking a question.
Nick shook his head,
"No, she did. We both had an early schedule. She's working
at the bar since we're going to be in the studio all day."
A.J. commented, "She's
going to crash and burn if she doesn't watch it."
I'm keeping my eye on her." Nick scolded A.J. hoping he'd
mind his own business, especially in front of Kevin.
"What do you
mean?" Brian was getting concerned.
some late nights, early mornings and running around from coast
to coast. She hasn't had a day off since the holidays."
Kevin thought about
what A.J. said. "Are ya kiddin' me? The girl spent half
a day at a Spa in Sundance. I should know, I paid for it!"
The vein in Kevin's neck was beginning to rear its ugly head.
He sure as hell didn't get what he wanted at Sundance, Sheridan.
"Think about the stress she is under. The press has been
all over her for weeks. Scouting her out at the bar. You know
how freaked out you were when fans would stalk us in Europe
when we first began touring."
she had enough booze in her to relax whatever stress she may
have had." Kevin sucked something from between his teeth.
Nick gave Kevin a
look, "We get your point, Kevin. You don't agree. Can we
hit the studio? I'd like to have an early night."
At four in the afternoon,
Angel, Sheridan, and Marybeth made a surprise visit to the studio
with a birthday cake for Nick. They didn't stay long as the
boys were in a groove and they didn't want to disturb the creative
juices that were flowing. Although, the girls did linger in
the studio so they could listen to what they were singing. The
girls headed in separate directions after that. Kevin had requested
Sheridan head home but that he may need her later for something.
Sheridan rolled her eyes at the girls when Kevin laughed. She
stopped when Kevin told her he could see her reflection in the
The guys continued
on for a bit longer. Kevin made a call to Sheridan and asked
her to meet him at his place. It was hard for him to talk in
front of the guys. "Look, I'm asking you to stay as my
friend, not my employee."
Nick started to grin
until Kevin shot him a grim reaper look.
"I know you're
hungry. I'll pick something up for dinner and bring it with
me. It's not my fault you're starving. Angel needs to stay out
of Nick's bed long enough to cook or teach you how to."
Nick outright laughed
in Kevin's face. He reached out and grabbed Kevin's cheeks with
both hands knowing it wasn't a bright move. "I know your
sweetie is hungry but I prefer my woman in bed not at the stove."
"Not funny Nick,"
Kevin muttered through scrunched cheeks. "I prefer my woman
in bed as well. I hope Sheridan is better in bed than she is
with a stove."
Nick backed up while
his mouth fell open. "I didn't think you could Train. Come
on buddy, buck up, it won't be much longer."
Kevin groaned as he reached behind Nick and yanked a take out
menu off the bulletin board that was behind him.
Nick waited and watched
Kevin read over the menu. Nick quirked a smile as Kevin wrote
what he wanted to order down in a precise fashion. "So…
Ah… what are you two doing tonight?" Nick was hoping Sheridan
would be gone for a long time.
the big scene," Kevin's brows furrowed together.
"Oh, the big
one huh? Buddy you're too uptight about that."
"It won't be
your nuts rolling around a movie set either." Kevin quipped
back at him. "I have tape on the sheets of my bed Nick
so I can practice the blocking. I'm scared shitless over this."
be scared, you'll do fine. Dude, I just think Jamie is pissed
at you. You traded her off for Sheridan." Nick offered
Kevin some insight as he watched Kevin flip open his cell and
dial the number printed on the top of the menu.
worth it. She has a lot miles on that chassis. Sheridan, not
nearly as many." Kevin answered and then held up his hand
for Nick to wait.
ya later," Nick mouthed to him.
Kevin nodded his
head up and down at him.
Nick called Angel
to see if she'd eaten dinner. They hadn't really set any plans
for this evening, which Nick thought was weird since it was
his birthday but didn't make an issue of it.
Angelina was lying
on her bed, engrossed in her book and lost all track of time.
"No, but now that you mention it, I'm starving!" Angel
put down her book and began to pull out some clothes. "I
just thought you'd go out with your family…or something."
Angel mumbled the ending. She had planned on asking him what
his plans were; if he'd like a home cooked dinner, but there
was never a good time to talk.
"Nah, I've got
too much work going on now to deal with my family. Do you want
me to grab some take out and bring it back to your place?"
Nick questioned. "And I can stay there tonight?"
prefer to stay here?" Angel questioned wondering what was
going on in Nick's mind. Nick didn't want to temp Angel or himself
for that matter with his drug stash to keep them going. He was
enjoying the natural high they both had for each other. They
had a chemistry he had only dreamed about. He knew staying at
his condo could destroy it. Nick wasn't willing to take that
chance. He also knew A.J. suspected something was going on and
didn't want to risk getting busted.
be here." Angel said bringing Nick back from his thoughts.
be there. Kevin needs her to practice the blocking for his big
sex scene. He even put tape on his sheets. I guess he needs
Sheridan's body to roll on so he doesn't screw up his moves."
Nick knew better than to give Angel ammunition but it sort of
fell out of his mouth before the words registered in his brain.
"Works for me.
I have to call Sheridan. I'll see you soon." Angel laughed
and hung up on him.
Nick moaned as he dialed Kevin's cell to give him a heads up
that he had his mouth in overdrive again. Kevin didn't answer.
Nick adjusted his mirror as he started the truck. "Great,
he's so going to kick my ass for this."
The doorbell rang
and Angel practically sprinted to the front door from her bedroom.
"Good evening birthday boy, whatcha got?"
Nick couldn't resist
the playfulness in Angel's voice. He stared at her for a moment
and took in her natural beauty. "Come here gorgeous."
Nick playfully grabbed Angel by her waist and greeted her with
an overwhelming kiss. A minute later when he released her, she
stumbled a bit until she got her footing. The photographer smiled
with pleasure knowing he had captured a private moment and could
swear he saw a diamond ring on her finger.
"You greet me
with those kisses we're in big trouble." Angel said as
she tried to gather her breathing. Nick loved how he could catch
Angel off-guard. As he drew her into a hug, Nick gently whispered
in Angel's ear an 'I love you'.
Looking over Angel's
shoulder, Nick noticed the table all set and realized the apartment
was lit with candles everywhere. "This is very romantic
"Well, I had
to do something special for your birthday." Angel kissed
the side of Nick's neck. "I love you, too."
get cold if you keep doing that." Nick moaned softly.
Angel asked innocently.
"You know what!"
Nick licked his lips with a smirk.
Angel dished out
the food Nick brought and the couple sat down for a nice quiet
evening. After dinner, Angel had Nick open up his presents while
sitting on the couch drinking their beers.
Angel had wrapped
up a fun gift for him which consisted of some DVDs, candy and
popcorn; a sexy gift which had some sex toys and unique condoms,
and then her last minute Fedex package which contained the photos
she ordered. Nick was very surprised and happy. "These
are great, Angel."
"Well I knew
you wanted them so I figured I'd better order them first. I'll
drop them off to be framed some night next week after I get
off work from the bar. I was thinking black frames would be
Nick's heart was
overwhelmed with the love and affection Angel gives him. She
tried so hard to make it special for him. Nick sensed an emotional
breakdown coming, so he needed to go show Angelina how much
he loved her.
Nick picked up Angel
and carried her into her bedroom. After dropping her off on
the bed, he ran out to the living room to pick up the sex toys
and condoms. "I never did get to the drugstore." Nick
"Gee, I wonder
why," Angel said as she got up off the bed to turn her
stereo on. She knew Sheridan would be coming home.
staying and helping me out." Kevin dried the last dish
in the sink.
"I really don't
know how I can help you with this Kevin." Sheridan rinsed
the sink out with the sprayer.
Kevin had relaxed
quite a bit during dinner. When he was with Sheridan he seemed
to be able to put everything else aside and just be himself
lately. His constitution was seriously rattled after Jamie snapped
at him. He was trying to ease himself into asking her. "Look
as crazy as it seems you know this scene inside out and backwards,
you wrote it. I want to do it exactly the way you wrote it.
I'm just afraid my hand might land in the wrong place."
Sheridan neatly folded
the dishrag. She tuned to him, her face tinged slightly pink.
"I understand that, but it still doesn't help me understand
what I can help you with…"
"Bear with me
a minute." Kevin snagged her hand in his and walked her
to his bedroom. She hesitated at the door until he pulled slightly
to get her inside.
Sheridan began to
backup, "I really-"
Kevin grabbed both
of her hands in his as he pulled them up to his chest. "Relax
would you. It's not like you haven't been in this room before.
I want to sit on the window seat for awhile and go over the
finer points and the dialogue with you. Kevin pulled her towards
the window seat. He couldn't miss her sigh of relief. He needed
to slow his thoughts down and focus. As tempting as the situation
was this was nothing more than a rehearsal.
"Wow what an
amazing view you have from here. I love the deck off the back
"I like it.
I have a panoramic view in this place. It's one of the reasons
I chose this house. It's older but I did do some updates to
bring it out of the seventies."
"My parents still have their harvest gold refrigerator."
Kevin sat down across
from her. "We had the dreaded avocado," he laughed.
her legs and folded her ankles under her body. Kevin stood up
and walked to his dresser. He pulled two scripts off the top
of his dresser. He handed her one. "I can't thank you enough
for doing this for me." Kevin flipped the pages and smiled
at her. "You start."
They went over the
lines at least six times, maybe more. Sheridan tried to explain
to him what was what she was thinking and feeling at the time.
Sheridan stood up
and paced the room. She stopped next to the bed that looked
like two king size beds had been put together. She had never
seen something so large. Her fingers reached down and touched
the blue tape on the top of the comforter. She glanced back
to Kevin, "More practice," she muttered.
"It was just
a thought. I'm scared to death that I'm going to put my hand
in the wrong place and all hell is going to break loose."
Kevin sat on the bed. He watched her face for a reaction. He
closed his eyes for a minute when her tiny hand landed on his
shoulder and she squeezed.
"You will do
this absolutely perfect. You will not miss one mark and you
will not have to re-shoot it. We can work on this all night
until you have it perfect."
Sheridan pulled on
his hand until he stood up. She placed her hands on his shoulders.
Her hands slid down the front of his shirt and then back up.
She began to unbutton each button one by one.
Kevin was froze in
place until he realized Sheridan had started the scene already.
When she hit the bottom button his hands rushed to cover hers.
"I'm not sure about this baby. We could get in a ton of
trouble over this."
"We won't tell
anyone. Nobody needs to know…
"I could lose
my career over this. You're a student, I'm your advisor…"
me," Sheridan repeated the words she had written as she
pulled the shirt tails out of his pants.
Kevin's held his
breath when Sheridan actually did unbutton his pants. He stepped
back just as the scene had dictated. He was supposed to be hesitant
about making love to the assistant he had fell madly in love
with. "The hell with it," he growled as he shoved
Sheridan back on the bed. His hands brushed over her body and
he kissed her. He heard her moan on cue but wasn't sure if it
was Sheridan acting it was more like she was really moaning.
They kissed and kissed as the scene had called for. He placed
his hands under her shirt and moaned when he skimmed her ribs.
Her skin was so soft under the pads of his fingers. The next
thing he did was totally unscripted. He lowered his head and
kissed her stomach. Sheridan laughed and tried to push his head
away. His slid his tongue around her navel and heard a small
gasp of excitement.
in the script, you can't do that."
He looked up; her
eyes were dewy with lust and he so wanted to take her for real
right now. But the false pretense bothered him. "I think
it might work."
slap you senseless I'm sure." Sheridan propped herself
up on her elbows. "Come on let's start from the top and
Kevin smirked at her.
"I mean it,
or I'll go home." Sheridan frowned at him.
Kevin was astounded
at her cuteness at the moment. Right now the woman had 180 pound
man over six feet tall wrestling with her on his bed and she
was chastising him for improvising. She cocked an eyebrow at
"Okay, no improvising."
Kevin re-buttoned his shirt. He may not be able to make a move
but he was going to enjoy this as much as possible.
They rehearsed the
scene well into the middle of the night. Kevin's alarm blared
rudely at six in the morning. Sheridan grumbled to him to turn
Kevin's eyes flew
wide open on hearing the words. What was worse was that Sheridan
was lying with her head on his chest and her hand on his stomach.
The alarm still blared.
the bloody thing off."
Kevin separated from
her and turned it off. He headed for the shower and coffee before
the full impact of Sheridan falling asleep in his bed without
anything happening between them hit him. He also didn't want
to frighten her too much with the fact that they had simply
and innocently fallen asleep out of exhaustion.
They made their way to the studio in separate cars. Sheridan
stopped at her place to change clothes. Kevin walked up with
her knowing that Angel and Nick would probably be at the studio
already. He waited patiently in the living room for her. Sheridan
was dragging her feet. He pretty much figured out why. It was
going to be the walk of shame for her with Nick and Angel. Kevin
had every intention of finding those two first and telling them
nothing happened so that they didn't pick on her. "Baby!
Come on we're gonna be late!"
Sheridan yelled back at him.
lips twisted. "She's got a bit of 'tude going this morning."
Kevin went from the sofa to the chair to the front door. "Come
don't rush me." Sheridan walked to kitchen then to the
front door. "You didn't have to follow me home."
between us Sheridan. I will be sure to explain to all of them
that key point."
"Don't say a
word!" Sheridan sped by him.
Kevin was left holding
the doorknob and closing the door. He reached around and pushed
the button before he did so. "This day is not going to
go well at all."
They arrived at the
studio. Kevin corned Nick and Angel and gave them the lowdown
of what happened. "I don't know what happened to her Angel
but she mutated into a heinous bitch this morning."
wanted something to happen you stupid hillbilly. She wrote that
scene staring you and her. You rehearsed a sex scene until the
wee hours of the morning and you didn't get it on with her."
be right," Kevin balked at her.
Nick shook his head
as Angel walked way. "Explain it to him!" Angel sneered
back at the two of them.
"Aw fuck it,"
Kevin stormed away to find wardrobe and makeup.
John barked as his hand sliced the air in front of him. His
grimace evident to all the onlookers except Kevin, who appeared
startled by the command more than anything else.
John slid from his
Director's chair and strode to the set. The cast and crew had
tried all day to get the scene right. First, there were lighting
problems, then sound problems. After lunch, the day grew worse.
Kevin was missing his cues, screwing up the blocking, and flubbing
his lines. He was making a disaster of the rest of the scene
and he knew it.
John's gaze sliced
around the room and stopped at the man and woman resting on
the bed of the set. "I don't need to remind you we are
shooting on a tight budget. You have the lines down now but
the movements are off. Everything is scripted for a reason,
it's called a camera. Get it down and get it down right. Find
someone to work the kinks out with."
Kevin looked at Jamie.
She was as frustrated as the director was with him. Closing
his eyes, he pulled in a cleansing breath and exhaled slowly.
His nerves were working on him. "I'm tryin'. I am. I just
freeze when it comes to makin' my moves."
"There's a first,"
came from Nick followed by snickers from crowd of crewmembers.
Kevin lowered his
head. He knew this part; he knew it inside and out. He was embarrassed
over his mistakes. His gaze fell to Jamie, who still sat next
to him with a sheet covering her breasts. As he thought about
the last scene, he tried not to laugh, since twice they had
banged heads. When Kevin went to make his move, as per the directions
in the script, he froze. It was supposed to be acting but in
his head, he saw someone entirely different from his co-star.
The image in his brain caused his body to freeze and when he
did eventually move, he screwed up the blocking. He stared at
her, unsure if he should continue or start over. Her face didn't
sour but under the sheets, he could feel a tightly balled fist
next to his stomach. He rolled to his side and waited for John
to cue his next move. The woman from wardrobe, who had helped
him earlier, seemed to almost giggle at him. "Great, just
great," Kevin mumbled under his breath.
Jamie grabbed the
robe somebody handed her and jammed her hands downs the sleeves.
Shrugging the robe over her shoulders she then pulled the tie
tightly around her waist. Sliding from the bed, she gave him
one pass. "You're supposed to be making love to me. I'm
not in inanimate object. Can't you do it with feeling?"
She padded away after flipping her hair over her shoulder. "Did
this happen with you in Chicago?"
Kevin didn't take
offense; he could see the hurt in her eyes. He was supposed
to be a professional and he wasn't doing his job. Silently,
he thanked a higher power that he had only taken her on one
date. This could be a real mess if it had gone any farther than
what it had. A little guilt ticked at him for a moment until
he turned to find Sheridan glaring at him. Now, he was in big
trouble. They had rehearsed this scene last night over and over
until he had done it perfectly, almost too perfectly.
Sheridan's lips puckered
into a pout, showing her disapproval with him. He shook his
head and closed his eyes as John called the set closed for the
night. They would try the scene again in the morning and he
hoped everyone would be prepared and the scene could be done
in one take. "It's pretend sex people," John barked.
The words echoed
around the sound sage, "Damn," Kevin groaned and waited
for most of the crew to filter out before he was getting up.
The last thing he wanted them to see was the flesh colored chunk
of cloth, which was strategically covering his family jewels.
What he was wearing barely qualified as cloth let alone clothes.
At first, he thought it was a joke until he realized the woman
from wardrobe was serious. "I lost my motivation."
Kevin rolled onto his back.
Nick's giggle carried
over the entire sound stage, "You're just afraid you'll
Kevin spied Sheridan
standing back and listening. If he could get out of the bed
and thump Nick as hard as he could right now, he would feel
a hell of a lot better. "Shut up Nick."
closer to the bed. Kevin watched the pucker she wore as it deepened.
He frowned at her. "I'm sorry I don't know what happened."
"You had it
right last night. We went over it so many times. I don't understand
Metal clanking caught
his attention; he turned from to the noise. "Angel what
are you doing?"
seen a studio camera up close. It's pretty cool." Angel
flicked, pulled, and pushed buttons.
Kevin watched her
look through the viewfinder at him; he shot her the middle finger.
"Very nice Mr.
Richardson. If only your fans could see your naked ass now."
Angel waved to him from behind the camera. "Are you ready
for your close up Kevin? We could post that package on the net."
it alone you'll break it." Nick sauntered towards her and
pulled her hand away from all the buttons. "Come on, we
gotta get going or we're going to be late."
"No were not,
we're not doing anything." Angel pulled away from Nick
and back towards the camera. Nick took her phone once and she
couldn't get a picture.
you're embarrassing him." Sheridan stood in front of the
camera blocking Angel's view of the bed and Kevin.
Angel walked away as Kevin swung his legs over the side of the
bed dragging the sheet with him. "You make me miss all
the good stuff Sheridan."
Sheridan stood in
front of the camera with her arms folded over her chest. "When
you post pics of Thor we'll talk."
Nick cast a look at Angel.
"She names things."
Nick grabbed Angel's hand. "I'll give you Thor. Come on
we're going to have a little talk about this naming passion
"You suck, Sheridan,"
Angel called back over her shoulder as Nick dragged Angel from
Kevin watched the
scenario and said nothing. Sitting on the side of the bed, he
wondered how he could explain to her what the hell happened
after they spent half the night rehearsing and he had pulled
it off successfully every time. His eyes focused on her ass
as she watched Nick drag Angel away. Her butt tightly encased
in a little black skirt. He licked his lips; damn he wanted
to touch her. To squeeze her butt with both hands and pull her
as tight as he could to his body, his dick like the idea as
it twitched at the thought.
He dropped his head
as she approached him, his bent elbows resting on the sheet
he had drawn across his hips. She placed a hand on each one
of his shoulders. Kevin closed his eyes and pictured her hands
all over his body. Her nails scraping against his skin, the
soft pads of her fingertips grazing against his, and the thought
was not helping his desire any as she squeezed his shoulders
with her hands.
Kevin bent his head back and closed his eyes as she leaned closer
to him. He closed his eyes and inhaled her scent. Her breasts
were so close. He was fighting with himself to stop his tongue
from darting out and tasting the silky flesh. He was semi-hard
now. One more impure thought and he would be bursting out of
the marble sack he was wearing.
"Let's try it
one more time." Sheridan rubbed his shoulders.
Her caress was light
and turned him on more than he thought it would. Sheridan was
meek and mild. "The meek shall inherit the earth,"
he thought to as he pushed her hand away. "I'm not in the
"You can do
this. I think your nerves were messing with your head. You didn't
seem focused. What were you thinking about?"
Kevin tilted his head back down; he looked at the leg that was
now stationed between his. He would love to run his tongue up
that leg right to the center of her-
is wrong with you?"
Kevin pulled her hand from his shoulder. He curled his fingers
around them. "You're right. Let's try it one more time
and hopefully tomorrow I'll do better." Kevin raised his
face to look at her; she was smiling at him. Her green eyes
twinkled away. He wondered how he could be wrapped up in someone
as innocent as her. He had pursued her and he had acquired her.
Now he wasn't sure what the hell to do next. They had gone on
two dates and so far, she called things to a grinding halt when
their make out sessions became hotter and hotter.
"Let's try it
one more time." Sheridan shifted to the cue that Jamie
would take at the top of the scene. "We'll have to pretend
you're dressed so we can do this from the beginning."
Kevin's mouth twisted
from side to side as his brows furrowed. How was he going to
pretend he didn't have a hard-on from hell? "We can try."
"You need to
stand up," Sheridan pulled on his hand.
'Lovely, just lovely,'
Kevin bemoaned in his head as Sheridan tugged on his hand. He
stood as she requested.
Her hands danced
across his chest and her fingers danced at his throat. He frowned
at her. "What are you doin'?"
your shirt, silly." Sheridan's fingernails scrapped over
Kevin had to bite
his tongue; he would enjoy the sensation while she pretended
to undo the shirt. When she reached his belly button, he latched
on to her hands. He knew the next move was to pull the phantom
shirttails from his pants and unbuckle his belt. There was no
way in hell she was going any further south now that his groin
pulsed and grew even larger.
Kevin fell into character
instantly, "I'm not sure about this baby. We could get
in a ton of trouble over this."
