Willow mused over her reply and texted, ‘Sorry, but I’m engaged. Please stop disturbing me.”
Jasper saw the reply. He loved that she said she was engaged, and his smile got bigger.. After Willow sent the text, she put her phone down and leaned in Jasper’s embrace. “I think we can skip the engagement party and go straight for the wedding.”
Jasper patted the back of her head. “That’s unfair for you. I want to give you a complete wedding.”
Willow wasn’t that petty. She leaned on his chest and shook her head. “I don’t need that. That’s nothing but ceremony.”
Jasper asked, ‘Any wedding planner you like?” Willow mused over it. “I do, but his schedule is full for the next five years. We don’t really need that.”
“No. Tell me the planner’s name. I’ll liaise with them,” said Jasper firmly. Willow didn’t want to make it hard for him. Weddings didn’t have to be that formal. She shook her head. “No. I don’t want you to beg for favors.”
Jasper held the back of her head and leaned down to kiss her. “I would do anything for you.”
Willow raised her head from his embrace languidly and twirled a lock of her hair. “I just need your love. I don’t need you to do anything for me.”
Jasper looked at her, dazed. Eventually, he stared deeply into her, his eyes filled with love. Willow raised her head and met his gaze. She got up and moved closer to him. Their foreheads touched, their breathing intertwined, and they started kissing. Willow loved being kissed by him as he held her in his embrace. It felt like a ball of warm light was holding her.
The kiss went on for a long time. Willow felt her lips getting numb, and she felt his hand moving down to her waist. The heat coming from his hand sent a current of electricity up her spine.
Willow bit Jasper’s tongue, and he chuckled. A little miffed, he said, “Shouldn’t have bitten me. I might punish you.” That was what Willow wanted. She narrowed her eyes. “Do it, then.”
Jasper’s breathing got heavier. He picked her up and went to the bedroom. She needs to be punished. In the end, the stubborn Willow submitted to Jasper. She had no strength left once they were done, so she leaned in his embrace. Jasper looked down at her and held her tighter.
Smiling, he said in a raspy tone that was filled with contentment, “That’ll teach you not to bite me next time.”
Willow buried her head in his chest and said, ‘I won’t do it again.” Jasper smiled as he tucked some hair behind her ear and kissed her face. “Get some rest. I’ll make dinner.”
Time flew by. Three days later, Shirley came to say goodbye. She was leaving since she was a transfer student. A helicopter was already waiting for her on the helipad. “See you at your wedding.”
Willow walked her to the helipad. She saw Cole coming as well, and she let them have some alone time.
Shirley was a little shy. She waved Willow goodbye, and then Cole came up to her with a bag of files. “Our head of department wants your father to have this. Take it.”
Shirley paused for a moment. Oh, so he only came to give me these files. “I see. I’ll make sure he gets it. Shirley nodded, her eyes twinkling as she looked at Cole. Cole was staring at her as well. “Have a safe trip, Shirley.”
Shirley was reminded of something, and she took a trinket out of her bag. It was a beautiful cat. “Here, Cole. For you. As a memento.”
