Brady and I texted all day on Friday. Well as much as we could with him being busy with work. We decided that we would do the beach Saturday afternoon so after work I got a wax and a new suit (obviously).
We met at Brady and Chris’s place at 1:00 PM. We were supposed to just meet them there then immediately go the beach near their house, but Chris and Carly disappeared to his room. Those two have turned into horny teenagers lately, hooking up whenever they get an opportunity (and making opportunities when necessary).
While we waited for them to be ready, Brady asked if I was hungry. I was actually starving because I had fasted all morning and the evening before (who wants to look like a beached whale in front of their future husband?). I told him I was fine so we sat at the dining room table talking. It was really sweet because he asked about things I told him on Friday. He actually listened and cares and I’m not used to that. Then I started to feel bad that we were just talking about me so I asked him to tell me more about his job since I’m not even sure exactly what he does.
Finally, Chris and Carly emerged so we walked down to the beach. It was obviously packed, but we managed to find a spot to set up camp. Carly and I immediately took our caftans off and oiled up. The sun wasn’t really out, but it was hot so we took advantage.
“Seriously? That’s what you guys came here to do?” Chris asked.
“What?” Carly said. “What else are we supposed to do?”
Chris picked Carly up and threw her over his shoulder. “This!”
Carly and Chris played in the water while Brady and I sat back on the towels. He kept his shirt on which I found really annoying and childish.
“Aren’t you going to get in the water?” Brady asked me.
“Yeah, maybe later,” I said even though I knew it wasn’t true. I love going to the beach and pool, but I actually hate getting wet. I can’t be the only one, right?
We sat there and people watched and talked until Chris and Carly got back. The four of us hung out and lounged and it was really laidback. I did notice that I never caught Brady checking out my body or chest which I found weird because my boobs looked really good. I even caught Chris looking at my chest.
Eventually we got hot and tired of the tourists so we decided to get food. We walked to a bar and grill not far from their place. We started with a round of shots then ordered food. Everyone ordered cheeseburgers and fries and heavy stuff, but since I was still in my bathing suit (with a coverup over it but still) so I got two avocado and prosciutto crostinis. Oh and a Long Island. Brady asked if I was sure that’s all I was going to eat and his concern was really cute.
We had another round of shots and I noticed that I was getting more talkative and touchy. I kept grabbing Brady’s hand and rubbing his thigh. He didn’t seem to mind and started grabbing my hand back and putting his arm around my shoulders.
Carly needed to go to the restroom and obviously I went with her. As soon as I stood up, I realized I was drunk. I hadn’t eaten in almost twenty hours so of course. What an amateur mistake.
When we got to the bathroom, I explained to Carly the situation.
“You’ll be fine. Just keep eating and you should be able to drink whatever you want,” she assured me.
I got back out there and ordered a grilled chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries, but I was drunk and grossed out by the thought of eating anything. Chris kept ordering us shots and the day started to get fuzzy.
I recall walking to the duplex from the bar (and venting to Brady about something work related), causing a scene in their kitchen with Carly, and making out with Brady on his bed (!!!???). I passed out at some point after that.
I woke up freezing under a mound of white blankets. At first, I had no idea where I was. Then I realized that I was in Brady’s bed and started remembering the day, being intoxicated and making out with Brady. God. So much for keeping Drunk Reese underwraps. Brady probably thinks I’m psychotic.
I laid there for a moment, checking my phone. It was 10:30 PM and I only had one new text message from my mom who said she was going to a party and wanted my opinion on what to wear.
“LBD and lace up pumps,” I told her without even asking what kind of party, who would be there, etc.
I sent a text to Kendra next. “Got drunk and made out with Brady. What do I do?”
I pushed back the thick comforter and saw that I had ditched my coverup and was laying there in just my bikini. Ugh. I found it abandoned on the side of the bed, threw it on and headed out the door. Brady was walking into his room as I was walking out. He had changed into a pair of lightweight sweatpants, a t-shirt and sleek black glasses. I had no idea he even wore glasses, but he looked so, so sexy.
“Hi,” I said, shyly.
“Hey! You’re up,” he said smiling. “Are you feeling okay?”
“I’m fine. Just fucking starving. Is Carly still here?”
Brady laughed. “Yeah. We’re all hanging out downstairs. There’s pizza.”
“How did you know that’s exactly what I wanted?”
“Telepathy, I suppose.”
I just smiled back.
“So we’ve got pepperoni and peppers and plain cheese. I’m sensing you’re a cheese girl.”
“Are you calling me boring?”
“Not at all. I think you’re too sophisticated for pepperoni.”
“Thanks. There are few things I’m too sophisticated for though,” I said.
Brady crossed his arms and leaned against the door frame. “I find that hard to believe.”
“It’s true. Just petty drama at work, bottom shelf vodka, and polyester. I really am quite simple and easy to please.”
He smiled at me, amused. “Good to know.”
We talked for a while longer then headed to the basement. I wolfed down two slices of pizza (one of each topping) then I was ready to leave. Carly planned on spending the night so Brady offered to take me home. On the way to my apartment he mentioned that he had fun and wanted to hang out again, but we made no plans. When we got to my place, he hugged me and we kissed briefly.
So there’s that.
