One-Night Stand #1.6

Chris knocked on Rachelle's door and waited while she answered it. Rachelle was dressed in a beautiful light purple dress with her hair down, shoes with a slightly raised heel and quite a bit of cleavage.

"Wow, you look beautiful," Chris said nervously. He pulled his right arm from behind his back and produced a single red rose. "This is for you."

"Oh, thank you. Please come in while I put this in some water," Rachelle invited. Chris stepped in and closed the door behind him. "You look really nice, too."

"Thanks," Chris looked around. "I love your apartment."

"I had to move out of my house after the divorce but I like it. It's just the right size for me."

Chris peered down the hallway that led to the bedroom and bathroom. Third date, he thought and smiled. He smiled bigger when he saw Rachelle come out of the kitchen. He cleared his throat. "Shall we go?"

"Yep, I'm ready," she shrugged.

Brett had Wendy naked and bent over his bed while he had sex with her and pulled her hair. She moaned loudly and screamed every time he pulled her hair harder. Brett was moving his hips faster and then someone knocked on his front door. He ignored it and tried to return his focus on Wendy but the person knocked again, louder.

"Damn," Brett said. "Stay here. I'll be back."

Brett got dressed and shut his bedroom door. He answered the door and saw Heather standing on the other side. "Hi, Brett," she smiled nervously. "Can we talk?"

Brett sighed and stepped back. "I guess. Come on in."

Heather came in and sat down on the couch. "Sorry to bother you, Brett but I need to talk to you."

"What about? Do you want anything to drink?"

"No thanks. About Chris. Remember when he and I went out on that date but it didn't work out?" she asked.


"I'm starting to wonder if maybe we should've tried harder to make it work," Heather said. Wendy came out of Brett's bedroom. "Oh, my. I didn't know you had company."

"It's okay. Heather, this is Wendy, Wendy this is Heather. Chris's baby mama," Chris introduced.

"Don't call me that."

"So you want to try another date with Chris?" asked Brett.

"We can double date!" Wendy squealed.

"One step at a time," Brett said. "You should really be talking to Chris about this."

"He's not home. Do you know where he is?" Heather asked.

Brett sighed. "He's on a date."

"A date?" Heather was shocked and upset. "With who?"

"Remember our Spanish teacher, Mrs. Aulthaus?"

"Yeah." Heather waited for Brett to finish but then realized what he was getting at. "Oh my God, he's out with Mrs. Aulthaus?"

"The Ballad of Chris and Heather"
"He's been kind of keeping it quiet because of the huge age difference," Brett said. "Chris said he and Ms. Aulthaus will go public if they feel right about it after tonight's date. You're not okay with this, are you?"

"The father of my child is dating our 40-year-old Spanish teacher, you could say I'm a little upset."

"You two tried having a relationship and both of you admitted it was a bad idea and decided that you can see other people," Brett said. "Are you jealous because he's actually dating while you are just growing bigger and bigger?"

"Brett!" Wendy chided.

"I don't like the way you said it but I guess a part of it is true," Heather shrugged. "I should be in Europe right now getting fawned over by some anonymous European guy. You know Chris better than anyone, Brett. How should I handle this?"

"Let him have his date," Brett began. "Go see him tomorrow and let him know your concerns. Just talk about it and see if you can come to some sort of conclusion."

"You really think so?" Heather asked. "The thing is, I'm not sure if I really want a relationship at this time. Not until after the baby is born anyway."

"I'm sure Chris would understand," Brett smiled. "You two get along very well and even if you two don't become a couple, you'll still be great parents."

"Thanks, Brett. I'll let you get back to what you were doing," Heather got up and went over to the door. "I'll probably see you this weekend if not sooner. You are still helping with the moving, correct?"

"I suppose," Brett rolled his eyes. "See you, Heather."

Chris and Rachelle made love in her bed, neither one caring about the twenty-four year age difference. Rachelle had wanted to sleep with Chris after their first date and had even prepared to bring him home but she made herself stand by a three-date rule.

She loved running her hands through her hair and loved the way Chris held her close when he was completely inside her. Afterward, Chris and Rachelle laid next to each other, the ambiance of the evening slowly wearing off.

"So I take it you had a nice night?" Chris asked, looking at Rachelle.

"I did," Rachelle purred. "I've been wanted to do this since our first date."

"I'm glad we finally got around to it because I was really wanting to do this, too," Chris said. "Where do we go from here?"

"What do you mean?" Rachelle asked.

"We've gone out three times, hung out and now made love. Do we take our relationship public? Should we start a relationship? I've never been in a situation like this," Chris mused.

"We should probably keep any relationship that we enter into private right now," Rachelle said. "I hope that's okay. Since you are just recently out of high school and the age difference, I'm just not ready to have the entire town watching us."

"I completely understand," Chris sat up in bed. "I'm gonna get a drink and get ready for bed."

"Same here," Rachelle said and she got out of bed.

The next morning, they made love again and Chris left and went back home. He went upstairs to his room and saw Heather sitting on his bed.

"Oh, this can't be good," he said.

"We need to talk," Heather began "about us. Remember our date after you came back?"

"Of course," Chris nodded. "What about it?"

"I've been wondering if maybe we should've tried harder to be in a relationship," she explained. "The reason I bring this up is that I'm thinking of how our baby will perceive us if we're not together in some way."

"I think our baby will be just fine," Chris said. "Is there something else that's bothering you?"

"I know about your dates with Ms. Aulthaus and I'm okay with them but I think we should be together."

Chris knelt down in front of Heather. "What is bringing all this up?" he asked.

"Can we please try it again?" Heather teared up.

Chris stroked her hair and looked in her eyes. "How about we have lunch today and we can talk all about this. Okay?"

She nodded. "Okay."

She got up and began to leave. Chris grabbed her arm to stop her. He turned her around and kissed her. Their lips separated and he smiled. "I'll pick you up at one?"

"That'd be fine," she replied.

Heather left the bedroom and then the house. Chris opened his cell phone and called Rachelle. "Hello? Rachelle? I don't think I can be in this relationship..."

Chris and Heather move in together.
