In A Heartbeat(8)

By:Hilary Storm

“I should probably find Ivy.” I say, thinking the tour has ended.



“I guess I will show you my bedroom later then.” I want to spend more time with Eaven. She is gorgeous and I miss spending time with a girl. I want to feel more of her softness against my skin.

“Let’s find Ivy first and then I would love for you to show me your room.” She seems nervous and intrigued at the same time.

“She is probably out back with everyone else. I will show you the way.” I grab her hand in mine and lead her to the backyard.

“OH MY GOD, Ev, they have a hot tub!” Ivy squeals at Eaven when she sees her.

“Are you doing alright, Ivy?” Eaven says as we close in on her.

“Yes” she replies slowly. I can tell Ivy is curious.

“I am going to spend time with Talon in his room for a bit. Will you be ok out here?” Ivy is smiling at us. I can tell she is a fan of whatever it is we have going on.

“Don’t you dare worry about me! You go and enjoy yourself. I will be just fine out here.”

“I am sorry you got stuck with Taron on the bus.” Eaven seems genuinely sorry for making her friend sit by my brother, who if I remember right, Ivy slipped away with at the club. What is up with that?

“Don’t be. I rather enjoyed Holden putting Taron in his place every time he got out of line. I will tell you all about it tomorrow.”

“Sounds good.” Eaven says as I pull her hand toward me. We start back into the house and Luke gives me the glare down. I nod to let him know that his message was received.

We enter my room and I close the door. She seems a little timid. It is taking everything I have not to rip her clothes off of her. I am positive it wouldn’t take much for me to see her tits. I want to feel every inch of her body.

“You have a drum set in your bedroom!” Eaven says pulling me away from my savage thoughts. “You will have to teach me to play sometime.”

“I can give you a little lesson right now if you want.” I smile because I have a vision of her sitting on my lap as I guide her through the movements.


I take a seat on my stool and pat my leg for her to sit. She smiles at me and slowly encourages herself to sit on my lap. Now if I could just get her to turn around and straddle me this would be even better. I lean in and inhale. Damn. Her hair smells good. She is undoing me. I am already getting hard and we haven’t even started.

“Our first lesson will be the bass drums. My kit has two so you are learning to play double time. You will use the footplates on the floor to control the beaters that will strike each of the drums. Place your feet on those pedals. Push up and down when you want to strike the drums.” She does what I say and she starts beating the drums uncontrollably. Talk about chaos. I am thinking this is not going to be near as hot as I first imagined.

“Hold up. It is the rhythm for the entire band. Imagine counting.”

“She slows to a one, two beat.”

Thump Thump

Thump Thump

Thump Thump

Thump Thump

Thump Thump

“It sounds like a heartbeat!” She sounds excited. I freeze.

Thump Thump

Thump Thump

Thump Thump



This is fun. I am sitting on his lap and pretending to play the drums. I have managed to make him stop me because the sounds were so out of rhythm and hectic. Now that I am making the sound of a heartbeat, he has stiffened beneath me. I stop and look over my shoulder and see his pain again. What did I do wrong?

“I am so sorry.” I whisper and frown.

He says softly into my ear “You have done nothing to be sorry about. I am sorry that I am not better company tonight. This is just a bad time for me.”

“You can teach me more another time.” I stand and turn to face him. His hands grab mine and he pulls me toward him. He wraps his arms around my waist and hugs my stomach. I stand there for a while before I realize he has a tear running down his face. I wish he would tell me what is going on. I am confused, but the one thing I know for sure is that this guy is hurting very badly. If I can do anything to ease his pain then that is what I am going to do.

“Talon. Come lay down with me on your bed.” I turn away and try not to let him notice that I have seen a tear. I go to the far side of the bed and sit down.

He turns off the light and sits on the side of the bed closest to the door. I decide to kick off my shoes and crawl over to the side he is on. I lie on the pillow and reach for him. He crawls over me and lays his head on my chest and collapses his body on the bed next to me. He wraps his arm around my hips and we lay there in complete silence.
