Coasting Down Memory Lane;
“Just be careful,” the doctor warned Riley as she was on her way out the door.
“I’ll try,” she said with a small smile.
Several minutes later Riley stepped out into the cold weather and looked at the ground that now had a slight layer of snow on it. She sauntered over to her car; as soon as she got in she blasted the heat, or tried to anyway. After having cool air shoot her directly in the face for a few minutes Riley accepted the fact that there would be no more heat filling up her car until she got it fixed.
This was a time of year that many people, including Riley hated driving in with a passion. The roads would either be wet from melted snow and slush or covered in snow and ice, adding even more danger to driving. This time around the roads were wet from a thin layer of snow that had fallen in the early morning.
As she pulled into her driveway she noticed Sidney’s Range Rover had some snow on it meaning that he had been there for a while. Riley walked up the steps that led to the large black front door. Walking in she was instantly hit with a sweet aroma that finally allowed her to relax.
“Hey babe,” Sidney greeted as she seated herself next to him on the couch.
“Hey,” she said with a smile.
“Where have you been all day?” Sidney asked as he snaked his left arm around her waist.
“Well first I had to stop into the studio to get some things and such. While I was opening a drawer my thumb got caught in it so I pulled back by instinct and dislocated my thumb, I had to go to the doctor after and that’s where I just was,” Riley said with a nervous laugh.
“Is it okay now?” he asked with great concern in his eyes.
“Yeah, the doctor put it back in its place, turns out it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was,” she said with a shrug.
“Wow, at least you’re okay. So I got some dinner since I figured once you got home you probably wouldn’t want to cook,” Sidney said as he stood up, pulling Riley along with him.
They walked into the kitchen and he pulled out some Greek food. He made sure to get a smaller amount for Riley since she couldn’t eat large amounts of food. They ate the delicious meal in the spacious kitchen with Sachi standing by the table with pleading eyes. “You’re not getting anything you pig,” Riley said to her dog that had now placed his head on her lap. Sidney just shook his head smiled at how adorable his girlfriend was with animals.
After dinner they made their way into the living room to watch TV for the rest of the evening. They cuddled up on the couch; Sidney had his arm around Riley as she rested her head on his shoulder. “So can you pick me up after work tomorrow? I have to take my car in to get the heat fixed,” Riley said as Sidney flicked through channels at a million miles an hour. “Yeah sure, I get out by 2:00 at the latest,” he replied as Riley placed her hand on his, “Slow down… you’re making me dizzy.”
The next morning Riley woke up quite sore after a wild night that she had endured with Sidney. He on the other hand, seemed to be fine, more energetic if anything. She took a hot shower to relax her muscles and got out just before he could intrude. Riley put on some light make-up while Sidney belted out horrible renditions of what used to be considered a good song while he took a shower.
Riley drove to the nearest auto-mechanic on roads that had not yet been cleared of the early morning’s snow. Sidney followed directly behind her. She explained what she wanted done and was told that she would get her car back in a few days since they were booked for the day. After doing so, she climbed in Sidney’s Range Rover and they made their way to the studio.
After kissing her loving boyfriend goodbye Riley walked into the filming section of the studio. She was thankful that she didn’t have to make multiple trips to arenas and other places on this chilly December day. All she had to do was briefly summarize the day’s show and introduce the next person who would talk seriously about football, a sport Riley could not cover in great detail.
For the show she was dressed in a grey long-sleeved V-neck shirt with a dark plum tank top on underneath and possibly the most comfortable black dress pants she had ever worn. Her hair was put in a high ponytail with her side bangs accenting her gorgeous green eyes beautifully.
She inhaled deeply as the countdown started. ‘Three, two, one’ were what she saw just before the red recording light flashed on.
“Good Thursday morning Pittsburgh, I’m Riley Jacobs and I’ll be joining you on this chilly December morning to fill you in on all the latest sports news that you get first on Sports Guide. Grab yourself a fresh cup of coffee and prepare to enjoy the show. Today we’ve got highlights of the Steelers game and everything else that went on in the NFL last night. Just before I pass it on to our football expert I’d like to give you a look at tonight’s hockey schedule. The baby Pens play tonight against the Binghamton Senators and the ‘grown up’ Penguins play the Minnesota Wild. Now off to Derek Reed who is joined by Elijah Thomas and Tyrell Yard…”
Once she saw the red light on the camera shut off she stepped off of the set and instead of changing right away like normal she watched the three guys who claimed to be experts goof around on live TV. She got caught up in a rather pointless conversation when she felt a pair of strong arms wrap around her waist. She turned around and saw Sidney staring down at her lovingly. They stood there gazing into each other’s eyes as the world around them was passing by. Sidney then leaned down and kissed an awaiting Riley sweetly on the lips with his arms still wrapped around her waist and her arms now linked around his neck. “I have to change then we can leave,” Riley whispered to him. “Let me come with you,” he said as Riley raised her right brow.
As soon as she stepped into the dressing room Sidney pushed her up against the wall, his lips crashing down on hers in a fiery kiss. He then moved from her lips to her neck as she entangled her fingers in his dark curly hair. “You… look… amazing,” he mumbled as he continued to nip at her neck. “So do you,” she moaned back. His hands trailed down to the bottom of her shirt and he proceeded to pull it off. He did the same with her tank top. He then made his way down to her pants and unzipped them in no time at all, letting them fall to her ankles as she kicked them off. Riley now stood pressed up against a wall in a TV studio dressing room in just her radiant red underwear. Sidney then began to snake his right arm around her back to unclasp her bra, “Sid, not here,” Riley breathed. He let out a frustrated sigh. “But why..?” he whined. “Because I work here and I’d like to keep a stable job,” she said as she searched for the pants that she arrived to work in. “Fine, but when we get home I’m having my way with you,” he said in a low voice.
