3.12 The Basement

Introducing Special guest DJ Silverback Thanks for the mix to go with this chapter 

A few hours to go before the doors officially opened and the Granger household was full of ciaos. Sam was still in the bathroom putting on makeup and Blake was yelling at her to get a move on. Then there was Estevan sitting reading the newspaper looking very calm and relaxed.

Blake saw that his Dad was not ready and said, "Dad, we have to leave in an hour." Estevan didn't reply just made his way to his room to get ready.  When the door closed behind him and he was alone, for the first time in a long time he was nervous. He was going to be face to face with Dawn, the woman who turned him down but in truth felt the same way but was just being too stubborn to admit it.

The clothes he was wearing tonight were ready. It would be the first time anyone would see this side of him but he was only interested in one opinion and that was Dawn. When he first met her it was her eyes that drew him in. When he moved down her face and saw her soft lips the thought of them touching his, made him tremble and by the time he got to her long, smooth legs thinking about her wrapping them around his waist, he was blown away and knew he had to get to know her. If only Dawn would come clean about how she felt, he just hoped that tonight she would.

Blair was concerned Estevan hadn't shown up yet, "Where is your Dad? He should be here by now."
William answered, "He's running late but he is on his way."
It was the third time Dawn had changed her outfit. 'Why am I bothering after all he told me to bring a plus one, besides he will have some young thing wrapped around his body as his date? I will just go show I don't care who's wrapped around him, have a drink and come home.'
When she looked at the clock she saw that she was running late she got in a taxi and made her way to the club. When she arrived there were still people lining up outside the door. She went straight inside showed the invite and headed for the lift.

William was taken by surprise when he saw his Dad, "Wow, this is weird. Dad you...look very different."
"It was the look I was going for...different."
Blake spoke to his Dad through his thoughts, 'What do you think you are doing?'
'Opening my club. If you are referring to the way I am dressed then that is my business but if you want to pick holes when are you getting married?'
The last thing Blake wanted to do was talk about marriage. Blake wasn't interested in getting married not to Sam or anyone. Deciding they would end up fighting he left and went to be with Sam.

They had got DJ Silverback to open the club.

 Blake was showing off some moves.

"Blair, have the doorman been given their instructions?" Estevan asked.
In a low tone, "They know the score!"
"Teddy not here?"

"She's not well so she stayed home." Blair answered.
"Not long before the baby arrives is it?" Estevan enquired.
"Two months but Teddy would rather the baby was born now."
"Do you know what you are having?"
"We are having a girl. I think Dawn just walked up to the other bar." 

When Estevan turned around he saw Dawn approaching the bar. He watched as she sat at the bar and drank her drink and then another. He slowly approached the bar; she was drinking when he got there. "Glad you made it."
Dawn looked up and saw Estevan standing by her, "Hi. The club is busy." trying to keep the conversation light.

"It's all thanks to you. Would you like another drink?"
Dawn just gave a half smile as a yes. He ushered the bartender to pour another drink as he took a seat next to her. "Did you come on your own?"

"Yes I did." snapping at him. Estevan got up to walk away but Dawn fell from the stool and fell into him.She could feel the ripple of his chest under her hands. Dawn loved the open shirt he was wearing and started to feel weak.

Looking up at him she gazed into his eyes, she wanted to tell him but suddenly was lost for words. Estevan could smell her perfume and her eyes were just fixed on his but he had to stay focused. She had to be honest, no more lies. He pulled away from Dawn and said, "I have to go, the club will be closing soon and you need to go home."

Dawn stood there and asked in anger, "What gives you the right to tell me to go home?"
Estevan turned to her and said in a whisper, "You need to sober up. You are upset and before you make a fool of yourself, go home."

"Who says I'm upset? Only you do. I don't need you looking out for me; in fact I don't need anyone."
Estevan was fed up with her games and in response to her said, "I'm pleased for you now GO HOME." Dawn wasn't about to listen to him she looked straight at him and yelled, "No, I'm not going anywhere."

Before she knew what was happening, Estevan dragged her out of the club and was driving her home. "Let me out of this car right now." but Estevan ignored her. 

When they got into her apartment he put her on the sofa while he made the coffee. He told her to drink it and when she had finished said, "I'm not a child. I can look after myself. You didn't have to yell at me."
"I came over was polite and you snapped at me. You are the one upset and taking it out on me, question is why?"
"I'm not upset." trying to lie.
"I'll be off then. You are home safely and I need to shut up the club. Hope we work together soon. Goodbye Miss Star." 

He got to the door and Dawn said, "What that's it? You are going to walk away?"

Estevan turned to look at her and replies firmly, "What am I walking away from?"
"You know you are right, you need to go back to your club your women..."
"My what? Are you jealous? I seem to remember you turned me down. You also reminded me daily that there was no chance for a date. So again I want to know what am I walking away from."
Dawn was trying to think, he was right she had turned him down and now she was questioning him about other woman but he was right she was jealous.
"It's nothing really so thanks for driving me home. I'll see you around."
"I'm not going until you tell me what the hell is going on. This time no more games, Dawn!"
"There is nothing to tell, so just go."
"Damn it, Dawn stop lying to me and yourself. We both know you have feelings for me."   

Dawn thought she had hid her feelings for him well but what could she say now. She went to make another coffee but Estevan stopped her. "Are you going to just stay silent?"

She couldn't look at him and said in a low tone, "Your right, I like you but you made it clear that you are no longer interested."

"What makes you think that?"
"You went cold on me. You didn't answer the phone to me yesterday." 

Estevan turned Dawn around to face him.
"You needed time to think and it is worked."
Being in his arms was where she wanted to be but she wanted more. She suddenly blurted out without warning, "Make love to me?"
Estevan loved her honesty but declined the offer, "I can't Dawn, it's not the way I do things."

Dawn was now confused and pulled away from him, "What is that supposed to mean?" 

He pulled her in close and whispered, "I only make love to someone I'm in love with. Have gotten to know and in a relationship with. I'll ask you again would you go on a date with me?"
Dawn looked at him and replied, "I'd love too."
"Dinner tomorrow night?"
"What time?"
Before walking out the door he answered, "7.30 pm."

Estevan arranged to pick her up and then left. Dawn fell to the floor with mixed feelings, she was going to have her date but why didn't he kiss her goodnight?

Note: I'd to say that thank you to Karima who listened to my frustrations about this chapter, Thank you :)


  1. Aw man, I had butterflies when Estevan went to go talk to Dawn! Then she had to go all mental on him! I like how he finally got her to admit she liked him, but maybe he could've kissed her? You know... a reward maybe? :-)

    All-in-all, I'd say it went well since they have an upcoming date. Yay!

    1. Mypalsim1,

      The game went on till the end but yes they have a date...Kiss her, he is old fashioned lol.

      Hope you like their upcoming date :)

  2. ~ I have got to say first I loved the Video,it was very well done,& the photo booth was so funny but well placed,loved it & watched it twice probable will watch it again!LOL!
    ~ The music was perfection!
    ~ I see static electricity in the air when ever Dawn & Estevan are in the same room!They spark of each other,& she wonders why he did not give a kiss goodnight!
    ~ Loved it all we worth the small wait!
    ~ More when you can!(",)

    1. Karima,

      I'm glad you liked the video :) DJ Silverback did a good job with the music.
      Estevan and Dawn are very firey together, I hope they get a good ending. More next week :)

  3. Their mood swing in the club had me worried there for a second. I really thought the night wouldn't end on a good note. I'm glad to see they worked it all out. I loved the shots, it looks like they all had fun.

    1. Val,

      They both are very strong characters. Estevan really likes Dawn but won't rush things even though Dawn wants too tak things further.

      Glad you loved the shots as well :) You did make me laugh when I saw your comment about not posting on time.

  4. Estevan is a total Romeo, are you sure he's only been with one woman.

    LOL @ the pic where they're arguing in the club and DJ Silverback is playing away completely oblivious to them.

    Awesome chapter Lcky, now i'm off to watch the video.

    1. Pixx,

      Estevan has only been with one woman lol. The DJ I think thought it best to ignore them :).

      Glad you liked this chapter :)

  5. Omg, I love your story, it took me 2 days to catch up. Lucky for me it was the weekend. Your stories remind me of a soap opera, I can't wait to see what happens next. :)

    1. Becca,

      It took you two days to read, well I'm glad you enjoyed it. It comes out on a Tuesday so there is more to come :)

      Thanks for reading :)

  6. Actually, I was reading your other story as well. I was glad to find you here. :)

    1. Becca,

      Glad to hear :) I have another story coming soon. :)

  7. This chapter was so good! I just love Estevan even more!

    1. Daisies,

      Estevan has been very sneaky the way he has handled everything lol

      Thanks for reading :)

  8. Damn, Dawn is frustrating. She almost blew it again, if Estevan hadn't told her he knew she had feelings for him. Ha, bet she wasn't expecting that answer from him, that he wants to have a steady relationship before sex. I'm glad Estevan asked her on another date. His plan of "making the girl miss him" totally worked. :)

  9. Glad they have a date to look forward too, and estevan is a great guy most guys would jump at the chance to sleep with her. Shows he has morals.
