Chapter 2: Just another night
"I'm sorry." I said quietly clutching the sheets to my chest. Ellis shakes his head. "It's not your fault. You're still traumatized, Karlie." He whispered. I place my hands over my face completely embarrassed.
I actually almost broke down in tears when he was about to enter me. All I could think about was my step dad and all that he's done.
"This is so embarrassing."
"It's fine." He said. I take my hands off of my face and look at him. "Really?"
"We don't have to have sex tonight, Karlie. We can do it when you're ready. Okay? No rush."
I smile, lean up and kiss him. "Thank you." I whisper.
He nods smiling back and lay beside me. "Why don't we continue that conversation we started up at Nipples. Before my brother interrupted."
"What's wrong with him?"
"He's a perverted, ignorant whack job. What else do you want?"
"And you had to deal with that for-"
"Twenty nine years….yes. He got all the girls and I got the good grades and it still wasn't good enough for my step dad."
"Why'd he treat Tyler so good and you bad?" Suddenly, his life interested me. It sounds as bad as mine.
Ellis shrugged. "I don't know. I mean…Tyler got everything handed to him on a silver platter and all I got was jack shit."
"That's not fair."
"Damn right it isn't.. I've worked so damn hard throughout my life without any help and Tyler got everything he's ever wanted." Ellis shakes his head and look to me. "He's a womanizer. Do not go anywhere near him."
"I won't." I said.
"Good. He breaks hearts. That's just what he does. He's heartless and I watch as every dumb girl who throws a bone at him watches him act like a dog."
"I hate guys like that."
"Good. Because you deserve better."
I smiled and kissed him gently on the lips and sink in a deep sleep for the night.
"No sex? He just held you all night?" Melissa asked. We were used to guys treating us like shit in school so it was a shock.
"Yeah. He's so sweet and I don't normally get approached by sweet guys."
"Awww. Wedding bells."
I roll my eyes although I can't wipe the smile from my face.
"His brother is an asshole though."
"He has a brother?"
"Yeah. And he's a gorgeous, gorgeous asshole. He's a womanizer."
"I'm used to them. Think you can send me a pic?"
"You're such a high schooler."
"Epileptic horny brunette here."
Ah, good point.
"Fine. He came to Nipples last night. Maybe he'll come back and I can get a picture."
"You're the best bitchiest friend a girl can have."
"Shit, I'm tired as hell. I'll talk to you later."
"Okay." She hung up and I hung up too and sat back in my chair. I put my feet up on my desk and lean back swerving in my chair and shut my eyes.
I put on my dark purple satin corset top with a satin short black skirt that goes with it.
I put on my black fishnets and pumps. My hair is down and I step onto the stage completely a different person.
Closing my eyes as I slowly strutted out on stage, I let my skirt drop and I stepped out. I stepped to the pole and dropped to my knees as my hands slid down it. I threw my head back and let out a moan. They love it when I do that.
I slowly get to my feet and grind hard against the pole and run my fingers through my hair pulling some pieces up and then they fall back down to my back.
I turn around so that the pole is against my back and I slowly get down while using my satin gloves to feel on myself.
I look to the audience and I spot Tyler right in front of the stage staring up at me as the blue lights reflected off of his figure, turning black, white, and then back to blue.
Looking sexy, he throws some money on the stage and I go to it, pick it up and lay down as I gently drag a fifty dollar bill down my body, moaning as I do so.
I get to my feet and look out further out the audience to see Ellis at the bar. He raises his beer bottle to me and I wink at him as I grabbed the money and grind against the pole again.
Lexie and Carla comes out and I put my skirt back on and leave the stage to go back where Claudia is placing pictures on the mirrors as smoke blew out of her nose.
"What are you doing?"
"Pictures of my girls. You all are fucking artwork."
I smile. "Can I go out to…"
I nod back to her and grab my jean jacket and walk out to the other room and go up to the bar with Ellis. "Hey."
"You looked amazing up there."
"Oh thanks. Loads of practice."
He smiles and leans down to kiss me.
"Good job." Said a sarcastic voice. Both me and Ellis turn and Tyler is behind me smiling while sipping some kind of liquor out of a cup.
"Um… thank you." I said.
He looks to Ellis. "I bet you're glad you have a stripper as a girlfriend."
"We're not together." I said.
"Oh really?" Suddenly, Tyler's drink is spilled all over Ellis. He glares at Tyler.
"Damn, sorry little brother. You should go take care of that. That's an expensive shirt….I think." Tyler says shrugging.
Ellis sighs and touches my hand before walking out to find the bathroom.
"So," Tyler leans against the bar and his green eyes capture mine.
"I have a hotel room."
"So….I have mace. And a rape whistle." I said. He smiles.
"I don't have to force you, Karlie. I'll have you begging under me. Trust me." He said in a warm voice.
"I guarantee I won't." I said.
Tyler smirks. "I don't know. You have goose bumps at this moment. Am I…making you nervous?" He asked clearly enjoying the discomfort.
"No. you're irritating me."
"That makes two of us. I want you in my bed with me… now."
"And I want a million dollars but looks like we're both shit out of luck." I say. He smiles. "No woman can resist me."
"I can and that's what I'm doing. It doesn't matter how hot and sexy you are. I want Ellis."
"You think I'm sexy?" He asked. I roll my eyes. That's all he got out of that sentence.
"Of course." I say. He smiles. "Hmmm…"
Before I forget, "Can I take a picture of you?" I asked.
"Want to keep this face with you at all times?" He asked.
"No. My friend will be interested in you."
"Blonde or brunette?" He asked.
"Okay." He takes out his phone and I take a picture of him and send It to Melissa who later text back "yummy". I give Tyler the phone back. "Thanks."
"I know a way for you to repay me" He smirks.
"I can not cut your cock off and we'll be even."
"Or you can take it inside of that tight wetness." He said looking down at my breast and then into my eyes as he got closer.
"You can go home now, Tyler." Ellis says grabbing his arm.
Tyler sighed. "Damn, I was just getting started."
"Now you can finish by turning and leaving." Ellis said. Tyler turn to him. "Fucking buzz kill."
Tyler looks back to me and winks before turning away and leaving out of our view. Ellis sighs. "Karlie, I am so sorry."
"It's fine." I say running my fingers through my hair.
Ellis sighs. "Charming isn't he?" He asked. I smiled. "Hardly." I answer.
"I'm glad to hear that."
"Worried you're not good enough?"
"All the time." He answered. I leaned over and kissed him. He wraps his arms around my waist and pull me close to him.
"He always gets what he wants, Karlie. You just need to watch out."
"I'm not worried, Ellis. Honestly. Nothing about him interest me."
"You know you think he's good looking."
"Well I'm a girl. Of course I think he's good looking." I say rolling my eyes. Ellis smiles. "I don't want him to take you from me." he says suddenly serious.
I bite my lip. "Who says I was yours to begin with?" I asked.
Ellis smiles again. I liked making him smile. "I think we can work something out." He said.
"Dinner?" I asked.
Ellis smiled. "Yeah. Seven at Patriots tomorrow."
"Okay. And if I'm not bored, I'll consider a possibility of an….us." I said.
Ellis wearing that crooked half smile, pulled me closer. "You sure its just a possibility? Can't be a fact?"
"We'll see." I answered.
Ellis smiled. "Don't you have to get back on stage soon?"
"Well, I'm going to enjoy watching you." He said. I leaned over to kiss him again feeling something odd. Butterflies? I think so. I blush.
"Nothing. I just really like you." I said.
"I like that you speak your mind, Karlie. Not a lot of women can do that."
I slip off my robe. "My song is about to come on. Can you hold this?" I asked. He grabbed it from me and sat in on the bar.
I turn and go through the door, through the curtains and back on the stage.
I always feel sexy when I'm up here but I feel even sexier with Ellis watching me. My eyes meet his and we're both staring into deep oblivion. I grab the pole close my eyes and grind hard against it in tune with the song, "Time of the season" by Ben Taylor.
I can't get enough of this moment and its making me hotter and hotter by the second.
I caught eyes with Tyler whose staring at me intently. I suddenly feel like teasing him.
I take the skirt and pull it down to my ankles. And kick it off. Feeling the music, I shut my eyes.
And I'm suddenly back to that day. The first day it happened. How normal he acted when my mom walked through that door. How he didn't confess what he's done to me. That he's ruined me.
I open my eyes and get on my knees and put my fingers through my hair pulling it up and shutting my eyes and letting it hit my back.
Minnie comes behind me right behind me and put her fingers through my hair and makes me looks at her as she nips on my neck.
Guys love it when we do that and we try our hardest not to laugh during it. It's never awkward. It's hilarious. We've been friends since high school.
I look back and Tyler is staring at me and if I wasn't mistaking, I think I saw a huge bulge in his pants. Satisfied that I teased him, I got up as the song ended and me and Minnie bowed. The men clapped loudly throwing money on the stage that me and Minnie immediately collected.
We jumped up and down excitedly as we made it to the back and Claudia claps slowly and loudly as she smiles at us. "You two outdid yourselves. I have trained my beauties well."
"Why don't you ever get out there and shake your ass?" Minnie asked.
"Men don't want to see old whores like me."
"You're not old." I said.
"So I'm a whore?" She asked smiling.
"You said it not me." I said. Claudia grinned. "After years of working here, you're still a bitch…..I love it." She leaned down and kissed my cheek and then Minnie's.
"Karlie, you make me proud every time."
I grin. I loved Claudia. She was like the mother I wish I had.
"And me?" Minnie asked in her low voice. Claudia smiled and folded her arms. "And you, my dark beauty gave every guy out there a fucking hard on. And I love that. Both of you are sexy. I don't what I'd do without you girls."
"What about me?" Asked Mahogany. She had one heel on a chair as she pulled a fishnet stocking over her knee. Her blonde hair fell down over her face. "Don't I do good?" She asked.
Claudia scowled at Mahogany. They hated each other. Mahogany had a smart ass mouth but Claudia had to keep her because her mother owns the place.
"Yes. For an amateur." Claudia muttered.
Mahogany looked to her. "I'll be sure to tell my mom that."
"Tell her." Claudia challenged. Mahogany smiled, grabbed her phone and stepped outside.
"I want to choke that bitch." Minnie said shaking her head. She wasn't the only one.
"Who was that guy eyeing you? Well….there were two." Minnie said.
"This guy named Ellis. I like him a lot and his perverted brother, Tyler. Which Melissa already called dibs on."
"Damn." Minnie said as she went over to the dresser and started undressing.
"Gentlemen callers for the inexperienced stripper." Claudia grinned.
"Girls don't count. Does he know of your…..two way street?" She asked.
I shook my head. I hope that doesn't bother him to know that I'm bisexual.
Claudia sighed. "He'd be crazy to let you go. You know that right?"
I nodded and she pinched my cheek. She reached into her bra and handed me my money for the night. "Congratulations, you have earned your money for hard-on work."
I rolled my eyes. "Thanks. I need to get dressed."
She nodded and disappeared out the back door.
After I got dressed in my regular clothes, I told Minnie goodbye and I went out and got to Ellis. "Hey."
"Hi." He looks like he wants to take a bite out of me. Tyler comes toward me and he has the same look on his face. Only its darker.
"What?" I asked.
Ellis smiles. "You're just really good at your job." He said.
"Thank you….I think."
"Yeah, you were all attention." Tyler says and my smile disappears as I look at him. It's a quiet moment and I become a little uneasy under his gaze.
"Uh…come back to earth." Ellis said.
I leave Tyler's glare to look at Ellis and I can't help but smile. "Sorry." I whispered.
"Want me to take you home?" He asked.
"I drove here."
"Then can I walk you outside?" He asked. I nodded. Ellis grabs my hand and pulls me along with him and I risk a glance back at Tyler is staring at me out of infatuation. It scares me. My step dad gave me that same look. Only this look, seems more deeper than lust.
We come outside and Ellis looks at me and smiles. "Come here." He said pulling me. I follow him willingly as I'm pressed into the brick wall of the alley beside the club and his lips press against mine. I suddenly want to feel him. All of him and I wish I wasn't scared to have sex. I run my fingers through his hair as his lush lips lead mine.
I become out of breath as our kissing becomes fast and sloppy. He pulls away only a little and smiles breathless. "I'm sorry, I just wanted to do that all night."
"It's fine. I wanted you to." I whispered. Ellis smiles lightly and tucks pieces of my hair behind my ear. "You were so beautiful out there tonight. You just seemed so into it. Even with fifty old men watching you. How do you do it?"
"I don't know. Guess I'm used to it now." I said shrugging.
He smiles and steps back a little. "I love your passion for something so revealing."
He nods. "You can make the most insulting, sexual job look sensual and beautiful." He said.
"Is this a trick so you can fuck me?" I asked. He shook his head. "No. I want to know you. Everything about you."
"You fascinate me."
I pull on his jacket and he comes towards me and kisses me again. He taste good and his mouth taste tangy. And all I want to do is stand here and make out with him all night.
