The sunlight beamed through the airplane window, and it almost blinded me. I cannot believe I slept through the entire trip. So much for sitting near the window, I didn’t get to see the clouds from where I am. I don’t really sleep when flying, I could just be really tired from doing a lot of house chores before leaving Manila. Visiting relatives there adds a lot of sense in my being. I mean, I would never truly know and understand the meaning of the word responsibility’ had it been for my Lola who always watch every move I make and tells me what I should do. “Do the dishes before rodents clean it for you”, “Your laundry won’t wash themselves on their own” or “How can you breathe all these dust?” There’s really something wrong with me, I’m 24 but my granny still tells me what to do. I don’t know if I can ever accomplish anything without anyone telling me what to do. Or can I? The chores really take most of my energy. At least before landing in Taiwan, I’m all energized.
I had to go meet up with a colleague for my blogging project. She said there’s this beautiful water church in Taipei that is worth seeing and writing about. The last thing in the world I need is my grandmother yelling orders, so here I am.
“Well hello there sexy!” greeted my friend Claire. She grew up here in Taiwan, and we met in UCLA back in college. We were housemates, and we practically knew almost everything about each other. “How’s Manila? How’s your family?” she asked while hugging me. “Yeah same old, granny still tells me what to do. Never gets tired of it.” We strolled out of the airport with my luggage and into our waiting shuttle. It’s nice to see a familiar place in an unfamiliar land.
“I’m so happy to see you Claire. It’s been a while huh?”
“You bet Lex. There’s so much to tell you! But before that look at you! You used to be all chubby and all, what happened? Crash diet?”
“Stress” I said. “Lots of it” I winked at her and we both laughed. “Yeah tell me about it.”
Claire is my best friend in the whole world. We did things together that I cannot even imagine I could do. We drove motorcycles without helmets and did not get caught, we sneaked into boys’ bathrooms just before they shower and hid in places without being seen, we climbed to the tops of hills and mountains, we shouted from them at the top of our lungs, we cursed and laughed at the world like there was no tomorrow. We’re practically like sisters. Soul mates. Claire had a boyfriend in college, actually they’re still together, and that’s when she spent less and less time with me. I caught them touching each other inside the bathroom once, it was so disgusting. After graduation, she left California, and stayed here in Taiwan with her boyfriend Chang, while I stayed with my parents.
It was hard to look for a job back there, until an online ad flashed on my social networking site looking for a blogger/writer. So, I applied and got in. I never realized I got a lot of creativity in me, until I started writing. My parents think I’m just wasting my life in front of the PC, but I don’t mind. I earn and I can save, so I’m all good. I visited grandma in the Philippines because I missed her so much, and because maybe it’s time for me to get some sense of direction. Yes I have a job, but I don’t know what to do with the money I earn. I save it yes, I actually have a lot of it now and I don’t know what to do with it. Grandma always says “Start with the household chores first, maybe then you’ll realize something.” I find that true though. Whenever I wash dishes, that’s when I think of all the things I did back then. I thought of having a house of my own, maybe a pet dog, running my own restaurant, running after my children with my husband.
“Lex, wake up!” My thoughts and dreams trailed off. “We’re here!”
Claire and Chang’s house is in Su’ao Township in Yilan County. It’s just a few minutes away from the beach. The house they lived in now is a gift from Chang’s parents, before Claire walked in the picture. Chang’s family loved Claire though, and I think they’re getting ready to be married in a years.
“Wow, this house looks really amazing Claire.” “I know right! Come on, Chang’s waiting for us inside.”
The entrance to the house is paved with beautiful marbles. The receiving area is very cozy with a brown leather couch, a mini library, flat screen TV and a coffee table. Two life saver’s hang from the terrace. Change used to work as a lifeguard at the local beach nearby, no wonder he’s got some memorabilia.
“Hey Lex, I’m glad to see you! How’s your flight?” he asked giving me a quick hug. “It was okay, I slept through the trip, was exhausted from dong house chores at grandmas”. There was a pause. And then we all burst out laughing. “Yeah that’s some life. Come on let’s have lunch, I prepared a nice seafood pasta dish and some potato salad.”
“That sounds amazing, I’m starving.” I said truthfully.
“Well what are we waiting for? Let’s go.”
After lunch, I asked Claire how to get to the famous church she was talking about. She offered to give me a ride, and just dropped me off at the entrance of the Shangri-la hotel. I made some arrangements with the hotel management, so I’d get to take a look at the beautiful church that looks as if it is floating on water. For the regular tourists, this church is off limits – only those holding wedding ceremonies are allowed to get in.
I started walking on the corner side of the church, where a small boat is tied to giving you a rustic country side feel of transport going to the church. I was just enjoying the cool breeze and the quiet ambience of the place when I heard a really loud noise. “Excuse me coming through!” I’m like, who could be ruining my peace and quiet? I turned to see a handsome looking man, probably in his late twenties or early thirties, wearing white long sleeves, black pants and shiny black shoes. He was holding a leashed dog, a st Bernard, and they are coming towards me. Oh no.
I’ve never been jumped at by a really big furry dog before. Luckily, the guy managed to hold the dog before I took another step behind. One more step and I am sure to plunge into the greenish cold lake water.
“Whoa, hey boy easy! The frog’s gone okay, you almost knocked her off.”
I was frozen. My mouth stayed open and my scream melted away, the sound that came out is like a chicken’s. He was so cute. He looked ruggedly handsome, with really lean and muscular features. I’ve never seen such work of art in my life. “I’m sorry miss; Halsey really loves to run after frogs. Sorry to scare you. I’m Jason by the way.”
He held out his hand. Oh my goodness he held out his hand. What should I do??? I’m trying to reach for the hand but I can’t move!
“Are you okay miss?”
“Yeah I am. Uhm, I’m fine I’m just..” I took another step backwards and my legs splashed into the water. Luckily the lake is shallow, but I’m totally drenched. Unfortunately though, Jason grabbed my hand and he too, fell into the lake. In that instant, I wished he landed on top of me. “Oh geez it’s cold!” I muttered. “Are you okay? Let me help you up, I have spare clothes in my hotel room“
“Your hotel room?”
“Yeah, my sister’s getting married and we’re doing the wedding pictorial when Halsey here started running after that frog.”
“Oh I see. No I’m okay, I’ll just take a cab and go home.”
“No I insist please. This wouldn’t have happened because of me. At least let me help get you dried up.”
He helped me get up from the water. I was only wearing a shirt; my curves are showing up big time. I had to cover my front with my hands, otherwise he’ll see my nipples perfectly hardened by the damp coldness. Wait, was he looking? “I’m fine; I think I can stand on my own thanks” pulling my hand away from him. It’s really awkward walking along the sides of a really nice hotel drenched with a man you just met and his wild big dog. I caught a glimpse of him as I walked, I must admit he looks really cute. I can’t help but take another glance at his wet lean body. His cargo pants outline the size of his cock which makes me blush as I now know he is well equipped. I brush my arm against his as he walks in an attempt to instigate something.
He cleared his throat and I immediately looked away.” So, what’s your name?”
“Lex, is that short for Alexis? Alexa?”
“Nice name. It’s so unique”.
We walked past other guests and bell boys, until we finally reached the elevators. I was really cold and shivering.
“Lex, I’m sorry about what happened, I didn’t mean to ruin your day.”
With shivering voice I said “It was an accident. I’ll just get out of these cold wet clothes so I can be on my way.”
We quietly waited until we reached the 12th floor. He opened the door to his huge room.
“ Who are you sharing this room with?”
“Oh.” I said. I’ve never been alone in a room with a guy before. And a hot guy at that. Dirty thoughts cross my mind of how easy it would be to undress right in front of him but I have never done anything like that before.
“Let me just get you a towel, the bathroom’s in the bedroom, to the left.”
The bathroom was divine; I can’t wait to take my clothes off. I took a nice warm shower, and dried up. I never noticed that Jason is standing at the door way. With only a towel wrapped around his waist. Shoot. I forgot to close the door. I immediately covered my body with my hands.
“You don’t need to hide a body that sexy. Here’s your towel and some clothes. They’re my sister’s; I think you’re the same size.”
Why is he looking at me like that? “Thanks.”
He is advancing towards me. “What are you doing?”
“I’m giving you your towel and clothes.”
“Okay you can go out now thank you.”
He seemed used to seeing naked women. I better get out of here fast, I am not ready for this. After dressing up, I sprang from the hotel and into the road. I’ll call Claire to pick me up here. Wait. My bag’s in the hotel. I took a deep breath, and turned to the hotel, when a familiar voice called me.
“Hey sexy, do you need a ride?”
“No thanks my friend’s picking me up. I left my bag in your room, I’ll just go get it.”
“I’m going with you.”
We reached his room and I went straight to the bathroom where my bag is. I suddenly felt a hand on my shoulder. It was Jason. I immediately stood up. “I have to go, I…” “Hey, it’s okay I’m not going to hurt you.” He looked into my eyes and gave me a gentle kiss. I melted. We held the kiss for a long time until we were both out of breath. When we finally released each other, I couldn’t take it any longer. I grabbed and kissed him hard, my hands wrapped around his muscular shoulders. I knew I couldn’t stop. The sensation I was feeling is nauseating and it feels really good. He took his shirt off and mine, and he started tracing kisses from my lips, to my ears, down my neck and shoulders, and my bosom. He unhooked my bra and removed my shorts, leaving just my panties on. He scooped me and gently laid me on the bed, while he undressed. Cuddling my bosom, he kissed my tummy and played his tongue on my navel. The tingling pleasurable sensations drove me crazy. What’s even crazier is when he took my panties off, and talked to my other mouth. I tried to stop myself from moaning, but it was so good. I’ve never felt like this before.
He placed two fingers inside of me and started moving them rapidly hitting my g-spot. He began to use the full force of his arm and made even stronger pushes of his fingers. I had never felt so much pleasure in my life. I couldn’t help but to bring my legs together and I felt a strong sensation between my legs. I instantly began to squirt, the water hit his fingers with force, and the bed bellow me was drenched. He continued to flick his fingers inside of me, I thought the flow would stop, but I didn’t. He went inside of me and started thrusting his now stone-hard manhood into me, and I felt complete. “You are so beautiful” he whispered, as he continued to thrust. The gentle thrusts became rapid, until we both reached it, catching our breath.
“That was my first time Jason.”
“Yeah? I thought so. That was my first too, in the bathroom.”
“No kidding!” Why is he so insensitive? I got up and got ready to dress. “I was joking, come here.”
We laid in bed and talked about so many things until the sun went up. He told me about his life and how he also wants to be married in that same Eternal Water Church when he finds the one. I came back to Claire with more than just a story about a wedding church. After 5 years, I would never thought I’d come back to Yilan not to write about a church, but to be married there. I guess he already did find the one. I did too.
