Chapter 28: We Have A Date

Twigs followed Seth to the door, opening it for him as he put on his suit jacket. Seth headed through the doorway before turning around to look down at her. Twigs had just given him a mind-blowing blowjob that had erased any doubt that kissing her goodbye would be overstepping any lines. Seth reached over to cup the back of her head and leaned down to press his lips against her forehead in a gentle lingering kiss, not wanting to overwhelm the both of them with a full blown make out. Lord knows Seth would never leave if he had decided to go ahead and crush her mouth beneath his. Twigs smiled as he pulled his lips away from her skin, feeling precious and beautiful under his gaze.

“You know, you’re a really good kisser.” Twigs complimented, running her hands over his chest as she recalled the events of their earlier coitus. She’s kissed other guys before, but never one that knew how to expertly move his lips.

Seth smiled back, giving her forehead another kiss again. “You’re only as good as the one you’re kissing.”

He winked before letting her go and walking back into the hallway. Twigs watched him linger a little bit before walking down the remainder of the hallway. With every step Seth took, Twigs could feel a part of herself begin to panic that this could be the last time they’ll ever see each other again. What if this time he doesn’t come back to her? What if he really did come here to use her a second time and she was just too stupid to see it? Twigs didn’t want to think about it, but she found herself calling out to him before he reached the stairwell.

“Seth!” Twigs stepped outside past her open doorway with a look of distress on her face.

Seth turned around immediately and looked right back at her, one of his brows raised in question.

“Will you come back again?” Twigs asked in a low innocent voice, fiddling with the hem of her shirt.

Seth flashed her his billion dollar smile. “Of course I will. We have a date, remember?”

With that, Seth MacFarlane disappear behind the stairwell door, leaving Twigs entranced by his whole everything. After a few seconds more, Twigs ran back into the apartment and shut the front door. She searched every surface of the house for her cellphone before finding it on the floor beside her bed. Picking it up, Twigs dialed a few numbers before pressing the call button and holding it up to her ear. As her phone rang, she hurried back to the living room to sit on the window seat so she could see Seth leaves in case he hadn’t left the building yet. In front of her apartment building outside was a black sports car that stood out against all the other ordinary cars on the street. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that was a rich man’s car, so a lot of people were curious as to who the owner was. Seth was easily recognizable to the group of people surrounding his car as they pulled out their cameras. Twigs ducked behind the curtain just in case someone’s camera was pointing up in her direction. Did they know that Seth was in her apartment with her? Did they know about her?

“Hello Twigs, how was your hopefully romantic conversation with Mr. MacFarlane?” Simone answered from the other side of the phone. Twigs blushed red before peeking from behind the curtain to see the fans and paparazzi’s stepping out of the way for Seth’s Maserati as he drove away.

“Oh stop it, Simone! I need to talk to you about something important. I’m coming down to see you ok?” Twigs told Simone, watching the crowd of people below disperse from one another. She mentally sighed in relief knowing that they must not know anything about her yet or else they would have stayed and waited for her to step outside her apartment…or come pounding on her door.

“Stop right there, Twigs. I’m not at my parent’s place anymore. I’m at the café down the street with the girls. We were just leaving, if you want us to come over.” Simone informed her.

“Yeah, sure definitely. I’ll leave the front door unlock for you guys ok?” Twigs said, before saying goodbyes. With a heavy sigh she placed her phone down and stared out the window, waiting for her friends to show up.


The whole band of Neon Jungle and Simone fast walked to Twigs apartment building and up the flight of stairs. By the time they walked up to the right floor, they were almost out of breathe. Simone led the way to their front door, not stopping to greet Mr. and Mrs. Williams who had recently returned from their short vacation in the Bahamas. Simone led the girls into the apartment where she spotted Twigs sitting on the couch. Asami closed the door as the others gathered around Twigs.

“Oh my god, tell us EVERYTHING!” Shereen squealed in her Scottish accent, holding a pillow so she squeeze some excitement out when she hears another episode of the forbidden love story of Twigs and Seth.

“What else is there to tell, Shereen?” Jess asked, sitting beside her with an eyebrow raised.

“Yeah, we both know they’re loud enough for the whole building to hear.” Amira teased, earning a slap on the arm by Twigs.

“Oh my god, Simone did you tell them about that?” Twigs demanded, horrified.

Simone guiltily shrugged. “Well yeah, but they’re our friends and we trust them with our lives. It could be worse, sweetie! I could’ve told the whole building it was really you instead of two wandering hobo fucking in the hallway.”

“THAT’S WHAT YOU TOLD THEM!?” The girls shouted in surprise before bursting out laughing, even Twigs. After catching their breath, Neon Jungle demanded to know what had happened between Twigs and Seth since they last checked.

Twigs sighed. “Ok, as you know Seth and I…had sex at the dance studio.”

“Oh, we know.” Asami gushed, giggling along with her friends.

Twigs rolled her eyes. “Anyway, he came over this morning to apologize and…we had…sex again.”

The girls squealed loudly together before pleading for Twigs to continue on.

“After we…you know…he asked me out to dinner and I said yes.” Twigs finished before rubbing her face with her hands, a wave of stress blanketing over her. The rest of the girls noticed Twig’s behavior, and immediately stopped giggling, their eyes full of concern.

“What’s wrong, Twigs? Don’t you still like him anymore?” Jess asked. Twigs manage a small nod, as she stared passed the coffee table in deep thought, her brows furrowed.

Asami frowned. “I don’t get it. You’ve got a hot billionaire that you’re obviously interested in, taking you out to dinner, and yet you’re moping about it. What am I missing here?”

Amira spoke up, placing a hand on Twig’s knee. “Look honey, you need to explain this to us. We all know you like him, so why the long face?”

Twigs let out a shaky breathe as she sat back. “I’m a nervous wreck, I don’t know what to wear to dinner, I don’t know how to act around these other rich fancy people and nor do I know what to talk about! Not to mention that he’s completely out of my league!!”

“Bullshit honey, you’re out of his league.” Simone corrected.

Twigs whined. “What should I do about this date? Should I ask him for a raincheck until I can get myself together?”

“HELL NO!!” Shereen, Jess and Asami screamed at the same time, giving Twigs the triple death glare. The trio wasn’t going to let their friend pass up a chance of a lifetime that could possibly result in a happily ever after ending.
Amira took Twigs small hand in hers. “Look honey, meeting Seth, having him interested in you, him having sex with you and asking you out to dinner could all be fate trying to tell you something. Relationships and love are both risky situations everyone is going to face at one point in their lives if they want to be with someone. You’re putting your trust, heart and life on the line when you commit to somebody.”

“But that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. There are benefits that come with being with someone, and yes you might have to go through some pain along the way, but if that person is worth it, then it’s ok. If Seth is worth seeing again, being in a relationship with, and maybe one day falling in love with, than take it. You don’t need us to guide you along, sweetie. The answers are right in front of you.” Simone added.

Twigs chewed on her lips as everyone waited in silence for what she was going to decide. She hasn’t known Seth for that long, but that didn’t stop her from seeing how genuinely amazing he is inside and out. Perhaps, she could give this date a try. If it doesn’t work out, then unfortunately, it doesn’t work out and they can go their separate ways. Twigs knew that she had to just be herself, and see how their first date was going to go to find out if they could possibly be anything more.

Twigs nodded, surprising the others ladies. “You know what, I think I’ll go. I think I will go on a date with Seth MacFarlane.”
