Hello guys, huge sorry for the delay in this chapter. I had a crap load of work to do and my internet got cut (that's what happens when you're a broke college student, ha.) Anyways, I'm back and, luckily, I have worked on two parts and currently working on a few more. I will wait a day or two before posting the next parts but, rest assured, two parts will be uploaded this week.
Timeframe: Part 27, 28, and 29 will all happen on the same day (last month when part 27 was posted.) After part 29, we're back on real time.
Anyways, please continue to email me so I know someone is reading and liking what I'm writing. I also have a playlist of songs that I listen to while writing the chapters if ya'll are interested.
A fellow reader made a playlist with most of the songs I've either used or will use in the series. If y'all want to listen to it while reading the chapters the link for it is this:
Two new songs will be added on (the ones from this chapter.)
Can't Help Falling in Love With You – Haley Reinhart.

When El Vaso was getting ready to close, Jay and I said goodbye to our friends and we headed to Jay's car. Getting in, I couldn't stop myself from smiling like a dumbass.
I turned to Jay, smiling. "What do you mean?" I asked.
He laughed as he turned the car on. "Well," he said. "You've been smiling a lot. It's almost ... weird," he joked.
"What?" I laughed. "I'm just happy."
Jay smiled at me as he pulled out of the parking lot. "Yeah, you are, aren't you?"
I knew he wasn't expecting an answer but I whispered to myself, "I am."
As we got back to Jay's apartment, I couldn't help myself from thinking about Lea's words.
You should go for it Alex, she had said.
"Mhm?" He said as he put the car on park and looked at me.
All of a sudden the car felt too hot, too small. Panic was beginning to form inside me. I looked into Jay's eyes and all the panic seemed to stop. I realized I felt more self-control when I looked into his eyes. If Sebastian's eyes were a raging storm, then Jay's eyes were the calm, clear sky that came after.
The silence between us grew but still neither of us spoke. I guess we both knew what the other was thinking.
"Listen, Jay." I was going to apologize for all the trouble I had been for him. "I'm sorry that I –"
"I know," Jay interrupted.
"You didn't let me finish," I said.
"That's the thing, Alex." He turned and leaned closer to me. "I know you're sorry about a lot of things but I want you to know that doesn't matter anymore." Jay gave me a warm smile. "All that matters," he continued, "Is that you're happy now."
I gulped down my anxiety. "I am," I said as I moved closer to him, too.
I could see Jay's eyes travel from my eyes down to my lips. "Good," he said.
We were close enough to smell each other's breath. Jay's smelled like peppermint. The sound of our breathing filled my ears.
"I want to kiss you," he whispered.
So he did. It was that quick. One second he had opened his mouth to say that, the next our lips met halfway. Our tongues dancing back and forth, I couldn't tell where his mouth began and mine ended. To be frank, I didn't care. His hand came to my face and I felt his fingers tracing my jaw.
Wise men say, `Only fools rush in."
But I can't help falling in love with you.
"Let's go inside your dorm." I said.
Jay looked at me, a conflicting look in his eyes. "Are you sure," he asked.
I didn't hesitate. I didn't need to.
"Yes," I said.
We got out of his car and walked the stairs up to his dorm – his hand never letting go of mine.
I was smiling the whole way up, a feeling of pure joy and excitement and mischief filling me the closer we got to his door.
Standing outside his door, Jay looked at me again. "Are you sure, Alex? We don't have to –"
Oh, shall I stay?
Would it be a sin, oh, if I can't help falling in love you?
"I'm sure," I said.
We walked inside and, before Jay even closed the door, I was back on his lips. Every second our lips were connected made me feel more and more sure of what was happening. I pulled away from Jay and looked him in the eyes again. "Take off your shirt," I instructed.
Jay smiled. "Yes, sir."
He began to pull off his shirt but, before he completely did, I found myself kissing him again. "Sorry," I pulled off. "Go on," I smiled.
Jay began to pull his shirt off again and I found myself stopping him halfway as I met his lips with mine. I pulled away, embarrassed. "Sorry," I laughed.
"Screw this," he smiled. He leaned in to me this time and, as we kissed, he pulled off my shirt.
Like a river flows, surely, to the sea.
Darling, so it goes.
Something's are meant to be.
As he pulled my shirt off, I leaned down and pulled his off, too.
We staggered backwards, halfway in a state of undress when I hit the arm rest of his couch and fell back. Jay followed me as I fell and we landed on his couch – him on top of me.
Take my hand.
Take my whole life, too.
Oh, for I can't help falling in love with you.
Jay leaned his face away from mine, took my hands in his, and pulled them up. As he did, he looked back down at me. "Alex," he said.
"Yes," I asked.
"I think I really like you," he said.
"I think I really like you, too," I said.
And that was all we both said before our lips had met again. Jay moved his lips away from mine and began to kiss my neck. I let out a low moan as he got to that one spot on my neck – the one only one other person had found before.
I didn't have time to ponder on that as he moved his mouth from my neck down to my chest. Another low moan escaped and I arched my back as he moved his mouth further down to my naval.
Like a river flows, surely, to the sea.
Darling, so it goes.
Somethings are meant to be.
As he moved down, he dragged his left hand from my face to my chest. One hand unbuckled my belt, the other caressed my chest.
When he finally unbuckled my belt, he looked back up to me and, with his eyes, asked me for permission. I nodded.
Take my hand.
Take my whole life, too.
For I can't help falling in love with you.
Oh, for I can't help falling in love with you.
Jay began to pull of my jeans and I raised my hips to make it easier for him. I was left in my now too tight trunks. Just when I thought he was going to pull those off too, he met my eyes and leaned in for another kiss. I couldn't get enough of his lips. His skin had an intoxicating scent that I couldn't get enough off. His lips were like a warm fire against my own.
In this second – on this very day, on this very couch – I wanted him.
I wanted Jay.
"I want you to hear something," he said as he pulled off of me.
"What's that?" I asked, out of breath.
"Wait," he smiled.
Jay walked up to his T.V. stand and I saw him connect his phone to his speaker.
"It's your song," he said.
"You were in college working part-time waiting tables.
Left a small town – never looked back.
I was a flight risk with a fear of falling.
Wondering why we bothered with love if it never lasts."
I smiled as Jay walked back to me, his shirtless frame glowing different colors from the speaker's light.
"Why is this my song?" I asked, smiling from the couch.
"Because," he said as he reached the couch again and kneeled next to me. "Since we first met, all I could think about was you. And I can't believe that you gave me this chance to be with you. You had every reason not to open up to anyone after what happened." He shrugged, "But you did." I stared at his face as he absentmindedly played with my hair. He was silent for more than a minute, all the time his eyes focused on my hair. "I'm sorry, you know."
I looked into his eyes. "You're sorry? For what?"
"For what you went through with him." Jay met my eyes, "I'll never leave you alone." I could see the sincerity in his eyes. "I promise," he finished.
I believed him.
"Flash forward and we're taking on the world together.
And there's a drawer of my things at your place.
You learn my secrets and you figure out why I'm guarded.
You say we'll never make my parents' mistakes."
I kissed him, then.
I pulled his body on top of mine and I got rid of whatever clothing he had left. When I reached his boxer shorts, he looked at me and nodded. I pulled his shorts off and his dick rubbed up against my thigh as it sprung up. He took this opportunity to flip us – him on top of me now – and he removed my trunks. My own dick sprung up, pointing at the ceiling.
Jay met my eyes as he took me into his mouth. I would have held his gaze longer but his tongue on my dick made me breathe out a loud sigh and I closed my eyes. As he held me in his mouth, I played with his blonde hair and tried not to fall off the couch.
"But we got bills to pay.
We got nothing figured out.
When it was hard to take.
Yes, yes, this is what I thought about."
An eternity went by but I knew one thing: I wanted him.
"Jay," I breathed out.
He pulled off my dick and looked at me. I smiled thinking that, if it wasn't for my dick and the drool running down his chin, he'd look so innocent.
"I want you to fuck me," I said.
And he did.
As he positioned his dick to my ass, his eyes meet mine again. Neither of us had to say anything as he began to push himself inside me.
"And I remember that fight – 2:30 AM.
You said, `Everything was slipping right out of our hands.'
I ran out crying and you followed me out into the street.
Braced myself for the `Goodbye' `cause that's all I've ever known.
Then you took me by surprise.
You said, `I'll never leave you alone.'"
I remembered the last time I had had sex, a few months back with the stranger at the dorms. I couldn't help but notice how different this was. I was enjoying every aspect of tonight.
Slowly, so slowly, Jay began to move his hips. Every movement so careful and passionate. I couldn't stop myself from thinking that if sex with Sebastian was a burning fire, sex with Jay was like a rainstorm – refreshing, cool, and a blessing after a burning inferno.
"You said, `I remember how we felt sitting by the water.
And every time I look at you – it's like the first time.
I fell in love with a careless man's careful daughter.
She is the best thing that's ever been mine."
As Jay fucked me, he met my eyes. He did nothing other than meet my eyes but, in that moment, he and I were one. He leaned down and kissed me again. His tongue and mine wrestling each other.
Our breathing grew heavier as we both got closer to cumming. I wrapped my arms around his back as his thrusts got shorter but harder against my ass.
"I'm close Alex," he whispered in my ear.
"I know, Jay. Me –"
Out of nowhere, Jay's dick hit that one spot inside me that made my toes clench. Stopping me mid-sentence – and catching me completely off-guard – my orgasm took over.
I shut my eyes, "Oh, shit!" I could feel my ass muscles clenching and, in the back of my mind, I registered Jay's dick throbbing and cumming, too.
As I came, I arched my back and my bare skin was pressed closer to Jay's – his warmth and sweat mixing with my own.
I could feel his chest move up and down as his breathing got heavier while he came. Bare skin against bare skin, I could feel my head pounding.
As we both came down our high, Jay let his body fall on top of me. I let out a grunt as Jay laughed and apologized.
"You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter.
You are the best thing that's ever been mine.
Do you believe it?
We're gonna make it now.
And I can see it.
I can see it now."
"Here," he offered me his hand as he got off of me and stood. "Let me help you up."
I smiled and took his hand as we both stood, naked and post-orgasm, in his living room. I looked at the clock on his nightstand and read the time: 2:20AM.
"Shit, it's getting late," I said.
Jay turned his head to look at the time, too. "Hey, no worries, Alex. I can drive you home." He paused for a second and a small smile grew on his face. "Or ..."
Even in the dim lighting I could see something in Jay's eyes. "Or you could just spend the night here."
I laughed at his proposal. "Really?"
"Really," he smiled and kissed me – a small peck on the lips.
"Yeah," slowly I looked at him – all of him. "Yeah, I can probably stay."
"Then it's settled!" Jay clapped his hands and I couldn't stop the goofy smile that formed on my face.
"I just really need to shower first, though, Jay."
Jay looked up at me as he was picking our clothes off the floor. "Yeah, no problem. I have an extra set of joggers you can use when you get out."
I smiled and thanked him as I helped him pick up the rest of our clothes and headed to his bathroom.
Jay finished putting both their clothes into the washing machine. From there, he quietly put a fresh pair of shorts and joggers on top of the toilet while Alex was in the shower. He could see the outline of his body through the shower curtain.
Jay couldn't help himself from smiling as he heard Alex singing in the shower. He had such a nice voice and it was great to hear him sing again after all he went through.
"Hello, it's me.
I was wondering if, after all these years, you'd like to meet to go over everything.
They say that time's supposed to heal you.
But I ain't done much healing."
Jay slowly walked out of the restroom and walked back to the living room. With a can of lavender scented air-freshener, he tried, but failed, to completely remove the smell of sex. As a Resident Advisor, it would be messy if someone found out he had someone over so late at night.
As he sprayed, a small vibration caught his attention. He looked around the sofa and, finally, found the source of the sound: Alex's phone.
He picked it up from the floor and noticed an unfamiliar number on the screen. Looking back to his clock, he wondered who would be calling at this time. Thinking it might be an emergency, Jay answered the phone.
"Hello," he said.
He could hear someone on the other line – or was it a radio playing?
"Oh, sorry," they said. "Wrong number."
"Oh, no worries, dude," he said. He heard the line click as the call ended. Jay finished spraying the living room and walked back to his room, Alex's phone in hand. He plugged it in to a wall adapter just as the shower turned off and Alex walked out in only his joggers.
Jay raised an eyebrow as he starred at the boy walking out of the shower. He smiled and invited him over with a small nod.
Alex smiled and walked towards him. Shutting the door behind him, he walked into Jay's room.
