Hey readers! Here's another chapter that I think y'all will L.O.V.E. Remember, I don't own The Incredibles or the characters. I only own my OC's! Enjoy!

Chapter Eighteen - L.O.V.E

We had made arrangements to see each other to figure out what this whole new situation meant. I would come over to his house, talk with him, eat, and then leave. We did this every other day at 7:30 pm. At first, it was awkward and we didn't really have much to say to each other. So we would figure out ways to communicate without really talking. We would watch a movie with a certain meaning or play a particular board game. After a while, it wasn't so bad anymore. I would look forward to seeing him, especially the night before. I would go to bed with my toes tingling and my stomach full of butterflies. I know it sounds silly, but I have to be completely honest. Every once in awhile I would give him a kiss. Nothing close to like the first one, but something sweet and simple. It became a habit for both of us so whenever nothing was going on we would just give each other a quick kiss. This led to us being more close, physically close. I would hug him every time I was at the front door, or when we watch tv I would hold his hand, and sometimes I would get close to him and rest my head on his shoulder while he would read to me.

Then one day something happened that changed things up.

I was just about to head over to his place when Mary and I had a little talk. "So, have you guys….done anything?" I nodded my head. "Yeah, we have a lot of fun. I think my favorite thing is when he reads to me." She laughed. "No, Violet, what I meant to ask was have you guys done anything sexual?" I could feel my face heat up. "Oh….no, not yet. Is that bad?" I asked, embarrassed. "Oh no, not at all. That's a good thing! That means he's really into you and not just into your body. I'm sure you'll both have some fun eventually." This got me thinking. "Do you think I should initiate something?" She shrugged. "That all depends on you, Princess. Do you feel like you're ready?" I was a bit torn. "I've thought about it. A lot more than I would like to admit." She slowly nodded her head. "Well, have you've ever had sex before?" I looked down and shook my head. "Don't feel bad! That's nothing to be ashamed of, Princess! Do you experiment with your lady parts, though?" I slowly nodded my head. "Is that okay?" She wrapped an arm around me. "Of course! No shame in that, in fact, that's 100% normal. No lie. Everyone does and if they deny it they are lying." That had made me feel better since I had never talked about it with anyone before. It was way too personal and honestly too taboo to discuss, but Mary was always accepting and understanding regardless of the situation. "Well, we've been seeing each other for months now. Do you think this would be a good time to start?" She nodded her head. "But only if you're ready, don't do anything if you feel like it's too soon." I nodded my head. "Okay."

I had decided to pack another set of clothes and headed over there. When I had arrived everything was pretty much the same, we talked, ate, watched some tv, etc. When it was getting close to the time I would usually leave I looked up at him. "Can I ask you something? A favor?" He had an eyebrow raised. "Sure, what is it?" I bit my bottom lip as I felt my heart pick up in speed. "Can I stay here tonight?" His eyes slightly widened. "Is there something wrong at home?" He asked in a concerned tone. "No, I just wanted to spend more time with you, if that's okay?" He thought for a moment and then looked at the clock. "Alright, I mean it is a Saturday night after all." I couldn't help but smile. I leaned up and kissed his cheek. Hopefully, everything would work out the way I wanted it to because I had something special planned tonight.

When it was getting pretty late he led me upstairs to a particular room. He turned on the light and I saw a queen size bed with a nightstand. "You can stay here tonight." I turned over to look at him. "This isn't your room." He seemed confused by my statement. "No, it's not. It's the guest room." I could feel my ears heat up. "Well can I at least see your bedroom before I go to sleep?" He looked at me for a second before turning off the light and walking down the very long hall. I hadn't even realized that the hall turned and continued on. The house was so big for just him. He led me to the end of the hall to a door; he opened it and flipped on the lights. Revealed to me was a large bedroom with black walls and dark furniture. There was a large king-size bed with a black headboard, two gray nightstands were on either side of the bed. I had gripped onto my purse as I felt a sensation in between my legs. "Wow, you have quite a style, Mr. Pine," I said as I walked in and looked around. I then noticed another door. "Is this your bathroom?" I then approached it. "Yes," Before I grabbed the handle I turned back to look at him. "May I?" He nodded his head. I then gently took the handle and turned it as I felt my heart pick back up. The lights turned on automatically. It was also big, much like the rest of the house. I saw my reflection and stared at myself for a little bit. Hopefully, I was going to be enough for him. I saw him come up behind me in the reflection so I turned around and faced him, "May I use your bathroom real quick?" He had confusion written across his face. "You planning on snooping around? I can already tell you that you're probably gonna be disappointed. I don't have anything interesting or entertaining." I giggled while shaking my head. "No, I just want to use your bathroom real quick." He nodded his head and walked out, closing the door behind him. I put my purse down on the counter and pulled out my clothes, well, underwear. I had bought a new set just for this certain occasion, although I wasn't sure when I was going to use it, now seemed the right time. I had bought a black lacy bra and matching panties. I quickly changed and stared at myself. "Yes, I will be enough," I whispered to myself with a smile.

I turned around to open the door. I could hear my heartbeat in my ears and my stomach felt knotted up. I exhaled and grabbed the handle and turned it slowly. As I opened the door I saw that he was looking out his window completely unaware of what I was about to do. I then quietly walked over to his bedroom door and closed it. He turned around and his eyes widened. I bit my lip and gave him a smile. "I wanted to try something tonight and I was hoping you would be able to help me."

I walked towards him and leaned up to kiss him. "Violet, I think you should really think about this." I lowered myself back down. I hadn't expected him to say that. "You're young and I don't want you to feel pressured to do anything. We don't have to do this to have a good relationship. Just talking is enough and I don't want you to do something you might regret." I was taken aback. I was ready but I hadn't considered he might not be. I then backed away from him suddenly feeling embarrassed. "I'm sorry, I thought that maybe..." I quickly covered myself with my arms and turned invisible. "Violet, please don't be upset." He said now concerned. "I'm not, don't worry. I'm just gonna change now and leave." I quickly walked into the restroom and put on my clothes. "You don't have to go, you can stay here tonight." I didn't know what to do. I stopped and sank to the floor. "I don't know, I don't think I should stay here anymore," I admitted. He crouched down and reached for my hand and gently grabbed it. "I didn't mean to upset you, it's just this whole situation is complicated. I don't want you to make a rash decision that you might later wish had never happened." I allowed myself to be visible. "I don't think I could ever regret anything with you." He gave me a small smile and I smiled back at him. He then kissed the top of my head. "That's sweet of you to say, but for now let's wait." I nodded my head and stared at him. There really was no turning back now, though. Nothing could ever be the same again because I knew right then and there that I was in love with him.
