She couldn’t believe the day she had looked forward to for so long was nearly over; her best friend was finally a married woman. The wedding had been beautiful and she’d shed a tear watching her friend marry the man of her dreams but she couldn’t help be a little jealous because she was still alone. It wasn’t that she wasn’t trying, she had been on countless dates with men of all types and just couldn’t click with anyone. “Pull yourself together, Laura.” She had muttered to herself multiple times throughout the day when she felt the jealousy creep in, Jen was one of her oldest friends and she was so happy for her. Laura was sure she would find someone, eventually, but she was getting a little sick of being left on the shelf.

She felt confident in her appearance, being toned and lean from the hours spent in the gym, had a good office job, her own home and was more than able to hold a conversation but for some reason she still hadn’t found anyone she wanted to share her life with.

The formalities of the wedding were done for the day and the evening guests were beginning to arrive. Laura was finally relieved of the pressure of her bridesmaid duties and went to the bar to order herself a large glass of wine. Looking around the room she smiled to herself, she could see people talking, laughing and enjoying themselves and even people begining to make their way to the dance floor having enjoyed plenty of the table wine with their meal. Sighing gently she raised her glass of wine to her full lips, sipping the cool white wine and feeling its relaxing effects.

“Excuse me,” came a deep voice from behind her. She turned around and looked straight into the eyes of a handsome stranger. “I just wanted to get to the bar, sorry.” He explained, his sparkling green eyes looking directly into hers as his muscular arm grazed past hers as he pushed in towards her to the bar.

“Oh, that’s OK.” She muttered struggling to find the words to respond to him. She was completely distracted by his strong chiseled jaw, the dark well groomed stubble with a hint of grey that made her want to trace its edges with her fingers.

She couldn’t help but continue to look at him and her eyes ran down his body taking in his muscular chest, the undone shirt buttons allowing her to see just enough to make her curious. His crisp, white shirt was tucked into his dark jeans which clung to the curves of the muscles in his legs. She tried to pull her gaze away from him and try to regain some sort of composure but felt her eyes settle on the buckle of the black, leather belt at his waist. “Are you OK?” She heard him ask.

Snapping back to reality and realising she had been openly staring at the stranger at point blank range she looked up quickly “Erm, yes, sorry..I was just..” she stuttered, not entirely sure how to justify herself.

He laughed deeply, the sound warming her from the inside, “It’s OK.. I was doing the same.” He explained as his eyes dropped to the low V neck of her deep purple bridesmaid dress. Her cheeks and chest flushed pink under the scrutiny of his eyes and she watched him offer out his hand to her. “I’m Jake.” He said as she placed her hand in his to shake.

“Laura.” Was all she could say, feeling the warmth of his strong hand and smooth skin connecting with hers making her blush again.

“Nice to meet you Laura.”

“And you. How do you know Jen and Dave?” She asked, her curiosity ignited by who this stranger really was and where he had come from.”

“Oh I work with Dave, I haven’t been there long but he’s a great guy.” He explained, briefly turning away from her to order himself a drink. “Would you like one?” He asked. “Oh no, I’m fine thank you.” She replied, gesturing to the full glass of wine next to her at the bar.

“Maybe later.” He said, catching her eye and smiling. He winked at her briefly then turned and walked away, out of her eyeline.

Laura used the bar to steady herself and attempted to calm her breathing slightly before picking up her glass and making her way back to join her two other oldest friends, who were also bridesmaids today, to talk them through her encounter with Jake. She couldn’t remember the last time she had been so physically attracted to someone and it had left her a little shaken. Her eyes scanned the room periodically while she drank her glass of wine, hoping to catch another glimpse of Jake. Jen appeared at their table, eyes smiling with happiness, “Come on girls, come and dance.” She begged, taking Laura’s hand and pulling her towards the dance floor. By now there were plenty of people dancing and moving to the music and Laura let the atmosphere sweep over her as she began to dance with her friends. Lost in the music and with a few more drinks inside her, Laura felt herself really relax into the evening, she spun herself round in time with the music and felt herself thud into someone’s chest. She looked up, making eye contact with Jake and feeling his hands quickly slide around her waist to steady her. She involuntarily held her breath as his hands closed around the small of her waist, lightly grazing the tops of her full hips and she felt sure that he had pulled her in closer towards him too. “Thanks for catching me.” She smiled at him.

“Anytime. Fancy that drink now?” He asked, his hands releasing her and sliding down across the curves of her bum before releasing her.

“Yes, OK.” She agreed, taking the hand he offered out to her as he led them off on the dance floor and back towards the bar.

As they neared the bar, Jake moved Laura to the front of him and guided her towards a small space at the bar by placing his large hands back around her waist. Laura leant her stomach against the bar and leant forward in an attempt to be noticed. Jake positioned himself directly behind her and leant forward over her shoulder, raising his hand to catch the attention of the bar staff. Laura felt his lean frame push into her from behind and focused on the feeling of his belt buckle pushing into her lower back. She couldn’t help but wish it was the swell of his cock she could feel instead.

He ordered them a bottle of wine, picked up the two glasses and ice bucket and gestured to Laura to follow him. He led them to the balcony and out into the darkness of the cool summer evening. The change in temperature gave her goosebumps and she felt her nipples stiffen as they settled at a small table at the far side of the balcony, small fairy lights illuminating their surroundings. As Jake poured the wine, he asked her about herself and they made small talk whilst sipping their drinks. She couldnt help but be drawn to him, they way he spoke, the way he listened as she spoke and even the way his tongue ran across his lips every now and then while they talked. He offered her a top up and leant towards her to take her glass, his other hand resting lightly on her thigh and sliding back across the silk of her dress towards her knee as he returned to his seated position to pour the wine. As he handed Laura her now full glass she noticed his eyes trail up her legs, following the slit in her dress up to her thigh and she took the opportunity to uncross and recross her legs, allowing him the slightest glimpse further up. She watched his face intently and noticed him lick his lips again while he looked at her.

“You are just beautiful.” He breathed and rested his hand on her bare knee. Laura smiled and couldn’t help but look down and bite her bottom lip, both embarrassed by the compliment and also unsure what to say. She didn’t need to worry as he leant forward, lifted her face up towards him and gently kissed her. She responded immediately by pressing her lips hard against his, pushing her tongue gently into his mouth. He reciprocated and slid his hand up her leg, this time underneath her dress. Laura sucked his bottom lip into her mouth, teasing him with her tongue and nibbling his lip gently before releasing it. She heard him breathe in sharply and then he pulled away from her.
