"Ace..." I whispered, feeling my breath hitch, as goosebumps covered my skin.
"Hmm," he replied, burying his face into the crook of my neck. He took a deep breath, sighing in content, while his hands moved up and down my bare waist. I closed my eyes shut, curling my toes.
"Someone... Someone will see us," I managed to squeak out, trying to push at his hands. He took my wrists and pinned them to the wall on either side of me, leaving me helpless.
"And?" He pulled away to look me in the eye. I bit my lip, able to hear my own heart beat as his hot breath traced against my lips.
"We'll get expelled," I said softly, even as he made it incredibly hard for me to speak. His eyes flickered to my lips momentarily, before he gave me a small smile. His eyes glittered with mischief, as he stared at me.
"No one is expelling us, Ava. And when I'm this close to you," he whispered, leaning in even closer, as I pursed my lips, "getting expelled should be the least of your worries." He nudged my nose with his.
"What do you want?" I asked, frowning at him. I would be lying if I said I was not slightly excited by our position. But I'd also be lying if I said I was not afraid of what would happen next.
"You, obviously," he replied, his grip on my wrists tightening. "This is to remind you who you belong to, Ava. Don't forget that for even a second. I don't like it when that jerk touches you," he said through a clenched jaw.
"You're being irrational, Ace. What are you planning to do to me?" I asked, frowning.
"You sure you wanna know?" His voice was dangerously low, making me suck in a breath. He let go of one of my hands, and trailed a finger down my waist, making me squirm against him.
"Okay then. Don't blame me for what's about to happen."
