HOT LINKS FOR ELIZABETH SMITH-BABCOCK
A sneak peak, a tease if you will, of Elizabeth's soon to be released "A Leap For Love"
The sun was bright as Jess and Liv walked into their office located in their apartment.
Jess and Liv were eager to get a start on their day.
Liv had uploaded her newest song onto YouTube and every other media outlet that would listen to a new rocker. Today could end her career if it didn't go well.
"Are we ready?"
"I don't know Jess if this doesn't go well I don't know what we would do." Liv said in a worried voice.
"Well we won't find anything out staring at a blank computer screen." Liv was trying to sound upbeat.
Jess turned on the laptop and waited for it to startup. Liv turned on the radio.
"That song is the new break out single by Liv Martin. It is breaking all new release records." The radio host said as Liv turned it down and looked at me with a huge smile on her face.
The phone started ringing before she could say anything.
Jess took a deep breath and answered the phone.
"Liv Martin entertainment this is Jessica Miller her agent and personal assistant how can I help you today?"
"I sure hope you can Miss Miller." came the sexy voice with a slight Irish accent that Jess had talked to once before.
"AHHH, Evan Young from Rolling Stone Magazine. "Jess let a smile spread across her face."I didn't think I would be hearing from you again. Did I miss the memo, did hell freeze over?"
"You know I hadn't heard THAT song that you posted. You sent me a different song. I still stand on the fact that the lack of background information on your client could be trouble. Tabloids can be brutal. They tend to make up information as they go. With the lack of information they could ruin her career!"
"It seems to me with my clients song hitting number one worldwide in twenty four hours and one million You Tube hits proves you wrong. Plus you had said any song she sung had a snowballs chance in hell of making it!" Jess took a quick pause, now time to cover up the lack of background information on Liv. "Liv could be anyone's daughter, sister ir girlfriend. She could be from anywhere. That is where the lack of information comes into play. She can relate to everyone! So it wouldn't matter if Liv was from Mars or London. She could be a Queen's daughter or drug dealers. Because her voice speaks to everyone, the public won't care." Jess threw out her cover story for Liv. She knew her friend wanted to make a name on her own. Liv didn't want to ride her father's coattails or doubt that it was her talent selling the records.
Liv and Jess had met in High school. Liv stood up to some bullies for Jess. They became instant friends. Jess had covered for Liv since. That was why she became her best friend’s manager. She had cut ties from her awful parents to be taken care of now by Liv's.
The loud sigh from the other side of the phone line brought Jess back to the here and now.
"How did you get that song everywhere in twenty four hours" he asked
Jess could tell he was frustrated his accent was thicker. "It's an alien mind trick. We are controlling everyone's minds. Forcing everyone to listen and like Liv." She wanted to yank his chain after all the cruel things he had said about her friend.
"Do you cook crow Miss Miller?"
His question was confusing and Jess wasn't sure how to answer it.
"Are you still there Jess? "
"Yes I am. “
"Look I don't say this often so listen to what I say closely. I was wrong! How about dinner? Just you and me. We can talk about an article for Liv? You and I can cover what way to best promote your client. Or we can just get to know each other better." Evan's voice had switched to being seductive.
"I don't think Liv wants YOU to do the article anymore. She found your response to her music and her right to have some things remain private very uncalled for. "Jess didn’t want dinner with this man his voice was sexy as hell. She had put her love life on hold to get Liv where she was now. She also knew that most men found her unattractive. Her own parents had thought so as well. Her life with them had been hell. They hated Liv and they hated her. She was never good enough.
"Jess.... Jess, are you there? My phone must be cutting out. "
Crap Jess had to get her shit together. This was Liv's career on the line and hers. They could both end up with nothing after all their hard work.
"I am sorry Mr. Young I think it was my phone not yours. I don't have time to meet with you. I can ask Liv about a Face Time interview with her then get back to you. " she was flustered
"Did you ever think Maybe it's you I want to just spend time with Jess?" His voice has lowered into a sexy purr her insides quivered.
"I don't date. Please send me emails with a few times that are good for you and I will email you back." Jess didn't wait for what he said next she hung up on him.
"What the hell was that Jess. Did I miss something”?
"I ... don't know...I mean we have emailed. We have bantered. The whole wanting a date thing. I am at a loss."
"He is really into you. When did this happen? Why are you turning him down?"
Jess had no clue when Evan started liking her. She showed Liv their emails and Liv said she had missed all the classic signs of a flirting.
So two weeks after the song's release and many e-mails later between them.
Liv had convinced her to go on a date with Evan. She had told Jess sometimes you had to go for it. Jess and Evan had agreed to a first date at the sex club. Him assuming she had experience, her wanting to have an experience.
He had sent her a lovely leather collar with matching handcuffs before their date. In the package had a note.
"Instead of crow I think I will eat you tonight." There was also a list of his rules.
The club was sensory overload for Jess. There were woman and men around her with hardly anything on. The bouncer at the entrance to the private rooms asked her for a safety word. She chose chunky monkey.
*BEEP * Went her cell phone alarm for her five minute warning. She had set alarms because she hated waiting. She also didn't want to wait forever. She was on her knees on a bed her head was facing away from the door. If the next alarm went off and her "date” hadn't shown she was out the door leaving the collar and handcuffs behind. She should have known she wasn't worthy. Evan didn't want her and she didn't have time for this. She had Liv's carrier to think about. Maybe he only wanted extra information on Liv. The NDA (None Disclosure Agreement) she had sent to him prevented it. He had signed it, but was that why he was a no show?
The next thing she heard was the door opening with a creak.
She inhaled deeply. He smelled good. This was it. Her mind raced. She hoped she would please him. She hadn't told him she was chunky. Would he walk back out the door?
She felt Evan's fingers running softly and slowly up her toes, up her calves. So very slowly his hands were moving on her body.
Then Evan's masculine hands were rubbing thighs....slowly and gently he went higher. She was feeling things she had never felt before. His hands were on her thick round ass now. He was kneading her ass like bread. He took one of his hands and slowly went to her breast. Evan gave them the same treatment. Nice slow and getting a tad rougher. Evan touched everywhere gently. She was forgetting all about her friends carrier and being obese.
*BEEP BEEP BEEP * Went her next alarm. FUCK SHE had just messed up rule number three. There was to be no outside distractions.
"Do you have somewhere more important to be tonight"? Evan asked lazily in that thick Irish accent that made her melt. His hands stopped moving but he hadn't taken them off. She hoped Evan would let the small mistake pass.
Evan's hands started to move again, slowly and softly. Slowly going to her panties he rubbed the outside of them. Slowly rubbing and touching. Evan found her clit and started rubbing it. He moved fast and then slower all around her pussy. Evan slid a finger inside her slowly. Jess knew she was wet. Her panties were soaked. Evan rained soft kisses on her back, up to her neck then back down to her butt. Then Evan stopped, leaving her begging for more.
He moved away from her "Keep the gifts. Maybe next time you will be more patient and wait for me. You need to learn that is good to go nice and slow sometimes”. With that he left.
Jess was left wanting, needing and dripping wet....
Evan stood on the other side of the door. What the hell just happened? He knew Jess had gotten his rules. Maybe he was being too hard on her. Evan let the back of his head rest on the door. Evan also knew what he felt when his finger slid into her pussy. Jess had lied, she was a virgin. In her emails she sounded experienced. He wanted to start something with her. Starting fresh with someone who knew nothing would be a challenge. Would she be worth it?
Jess sat on the bed staring at the wall. She heard the door re-open. It was probably the bouncer saying they needed the room.
"Not what I wanted from this night Jess. You’re not what I expected!"
"Sorry I should have told you I was obese!"
"Umm no maybe the fact you are a virgin would have helped. Otherwise you are perfect!"
Jess looked at Evan he was model looking good with amazing green eyes. Jess had seen his pictures with models and starlets.
"Bull Evan you don’t have to lie to me."
Evan walked over to where she sat and knelt down in front of her. Evan's green eyes looking into her's. His eyes looking straight into her soul.
Evy lips met hers with a fierce need. It was her first kiss and she wanted him to be the only man to kiss her.
"I want you. You are funny you are charming you are unpredictable. " Evan's voice was rough and ragged.
Jess moaned his kiss re-light the fire where his hands had been earlier.
Evan's hands started to roam her body. She started touching him. He had so many muscles. Suddenly Evan pulled back.
"We need to go slow." Eva was panting with need
"No now please" she begged.
Evan shook his head no and lifted her off the bed and out of the club.
It had been a month since the club. Jess hadn't heard from Evan. Not one single email only his article on Liv.
"Look what just came" Liv walked into their office with an armful of flowers.
"Ohhh goodie more flowers for the newest queen of rock. Whose talk show is it this week? "
"Nope these are for you!" Liv handed me the flowers
Jess pulled out the card and read it.
“One flower for every first thing you are about to experience together. One is for our first fight. Another one for is first time you forgive me. "
"I don't think twenty four will cover it." Jess said with a laugh.
"Ohhhhhhh this isn't all of them."
Liv dragged Jess into the living room area.
Evan stood in the living room a red rose in his hand. A picnic lunch on the floor and surrounded by all kinds of flowers.
Evan's green eyes met hers.
"This should have been our first date." Evan walked over and pulled Jess into his arms. His kiss melted her heart. Evan was lightning her insides on fire. But he had walked away without a word. Why was he here?
"Why me? Where have you been?"
"I could go on for days about why you! But I should ask you, why would you choose me? I fucked up! I left here that night trying to figure out how to date you! I finally figured it out. We start simple, we start slow, we start fresh."
Jess considered it for a moment. Evan's green eyes were full of love and promise. Jess had to have a first love sometime in her life twenty four was old compared to most. Jess could end up getting ger heart broken but she had to try. Jess chose to leap for love.
