A Rideshare Chronicles Novella The Grand Reunion

The Star Crossed Lovers

Act VI

Alessandra propped up as she heard the alarm go off as she immediately surveyed her surrounding.

"I knew it was just a dream," Alessandra said as she sighed as she looked at the bed sheet that was wrapped around her body. "So much for a dream is a thousand words!" Alessandra said in disappointment. She began to smell the aroma of bacon as she sniffed the air, followed by the sizzling from a pan.

Jonathan peeked out of the kitchen and smiled as Alessandra smiled back. "Breakfast?" Jonathan said as he stood naked with just an apron wrapped around his sculpted body as Jason Mraz's "Lucky" began to play on Alessandra's iPod speaker.

"Perfect song," Jonathan said with a flirtatious laugh as he shrugged his shoulders.

Alessandra immediately rushed out of bed as she flashed a smile from cheek to cheek.

Alessandra and Jonathan laughed as they engaged in conversation as they sat naked at Alessandra's bench table as Alessandra leaned on Jonathan's sculpted arm.

"So how is the adult film industry treating you," Alessandra said playfully.

"There you go with your judgmental comments," Jonathan said as he shook his head as Alessandra began to chuckle.

"I'm not a judgy bitch!" Alessandra said as she opened her mouth as Jonathan gently inserted the scoop of eggs laid on the fork's point. "No, seriously," Alessandra told with an open mouth. "I'm legitimately proud of you, babe."

"Really," Jonathan said in annoyance. "I'm a damn pornstar!"

"No," Alessandra corrected. "You're an adult film entertainer," Alessandra said as Jonathan's deep sultry laugh belted out of his perfectly shaped lips.

Jonathan smiled as he looked at Alessandra with his piercing, loving blue eyes.

"What?" Alessandra said in suspicion.

"Nothing," Jonathan said as he looked at the plate.

"Don't start with the secrets," Alessandra said as Jonathan huffed. "Tell me!" Alessandra said in laughter as she slapped his arm.

"Naw," Jonathan said as he put a bite of eggs in his mouth as chewed quickly. "I thought you hated me and didn't want me around," Jonathan said coyishly.

"Really, you have sex with hundreds of beautiful women as a job!" Alessandra said as Jonathan looked at Alessandra in frustration. "And your pretty damn good at it too!" Alessandra said as she smirked. "I got jealous for a bit."

Jonathan dropped his fork as he slowly turned towards Alessandra. "You watch my work?" Jonathan said in seriousness.

"It's the only way I felt close to you again," Alessandra said.

"Did you masturbate?" Jonathan said as he raised his eyebrows. Alessandra giggled as she slapped Jonathan on the arm once again. He rubbed his arm as he winked at Alessandra.

"Nasty ass!" Alessandra said as Jonathan neared close.

"You want to know how I did it?" Jonathan said as Alessandra flipped her hair as she looked at Jonathan.

"How, Mr. Pornstar of America!" Alessandra yelled as Jonathan pointed in disapproval.

"Hey!" Jonathan scolded playfully. "Adult film entertainer," Jonathan corrected as Alessandra began to chuckle.

"Tell me all your dirty industry secrets," Alessandra said as Jonathan looked at Alessandra seriously. Alessandra's laughter broke as Jonathan's face turned severe exceptionally quickly. Which intimidated Alessandra a little. "How?" Alessandra asked as she nervously looked at Jonathan.

"By thinking of you," Jonathan whispered as the music stopped immediately as Jonathan pulled Alessandra's face in as he began to kiss her.

The music immediately stopped at Jennifer Lopez's "Could This Be Love" began to play, which brought a smile to Jonathan's face.

"What?" Alessandra whispered as she pulled away.

Jonathan pulled her in gently as he whispered, "This is the happiest I have been in a long time."

Alessandra smiled as she began to kiss Jonathan. He pulled her naked body towards him as he lifted her. He led her into the bedroom as he closed the door behind him.

Alessandra opened her eyes as she smiled as. She saw Jonathan lying next to her as she attempted to move closer to the clock.

"Where are you going?" Jonathan said as he pulled her back, smiling as he squinted his eyes.

"I just check the time?" Alessandra said as she surrendered to his pull.

"So," Jonathan said as he kissed Alessandra as she snuggled up to him. "I'll be doing my last video?"

"What?" Alessandra said as she looked into his piercing eyes. "Why?" Alessandra said as Jonathan smiled as he kissed Alessandra on the forehead.

"I only did this to make a life for us," Jonathan said as he held her close.

"You're not ending your career for me," Alessandra said as she sat up.

"No," Jonathan reassured as he sat up, holding Alessandra in his arm. "There's a new opportunity that separates me from this life," Jonathan reassured as he wrapped his arms around Alessandra's shivering body, whispered in curiosity.

"A corporate position with Revolution Productions," Jonathan replied as Alessandra began to smile.

"You mean that?" Alessandra said as Jonathan laid back down.

"I'm coming back home!" Jonathan said as he chuckled at the sight of Alessandra being happy once again. "But after a year," Jonathan said as he looked at Alessandra.

"Meaning?" Alessandra asked in curiosity.

"I have one last tour as an adult entertainer after I shoot my last scene," Jonathan said as he grabbed Alessandra's hand.

"Who's the lucky lady?" Alessandra said as she began to ponder the many possibilities. Alessandra was about to speak, halted by Jonathan sitting back up as Alessandra followed his lead.

Jonathan looked at Alessandra awkwardly as she neared close.

"What?" Alessandra whispered in anxiousness.

"I want my last scene to be you," Jonathan whispered as Alessandra pulled away.

"Me?" Alessandra said in confusion. "Jonathan," Alessandra said in defense. "Look at me! I am not anywhere close to being the caliber of the woman that you film with," Alessandra told in the offense as she turned away.

"Mark thinks you would be perfect," Jonathan pleaded as he neared Alessandra.

Alessandra immediately pushed him away as she stormed into the bathroom.

"Babe," Jonathan said as he rushed towards Alessandra.

"So am I your trick now?" Alessandra scolded for the offense. "Am I one of your little whores, now!"

"It's not like that!" Jonathan pleaded.

"Then what is it!" Alessandra yelled as she looked at Jonathan with her piercing honey hazel eyes.

"The love we have is magical!" Jonathan said as Alessandra looked towards the ground. "Instead of doing some raunchy slutty scene," Jonathan said as he pulled Alessandra close. "I would rather do something meaningful that will remind people what the physical aspect of love is really about!" Jonathan yelled.

"Well, I am sure that you have many friends!" Alessandra said she folded her ring and index finger on both hands as she turned towards the mirror.

"God damn it!" Jonathan said as he pushed her vanity tray towards the floor.

Alessandra backed away in shock as she looked at Jonathan.

"Why do you have to be so fucken stubborn!" Jonathan said as Alessandra turned away in resentment. "Don't you see the only one I can genuinely pull this off with is with you!" Jonathan yelled as he put his hands toward his face.

Alessandra inched cautiously as she gently grabbed Jonathan's hands as she said, "I'm sorry."

Jonathan turned towards Alessandra as tears began to roll down his eyes. "Damn it, babe!" Jonathan said as he fought tears. "Why can't you see that my heart belongs to you."

"But look at me," Alessandra said as she looked in the mirror in shame as Airsupply's "All Out of Love" began to play.

"Why did you have to play this song," Jonathan said as he began to breathe in as tears started to flood his eyes.

Alessandra's tears began to fall as she began to wipe the tears from Jonathan's eyes.

"I've been lost without you, Princess!" Jonathan said as Alessandra hugged him as Jonathan began to cry.

"Ditto, Charming!" Alessandra said as she began to cry with Jonathan.

"I missed you, Alessandra!" Jonathan cried.

"I missed you too, Papi!" Alessandra said as Jonathan crouched up as he began to wipe the tears off Alessandra's eyes. Jonathan couldn't resist but pick Alessandra up. As she wrapped her legs around his naked body as he leads her to the bed. Jonathan threw her as he lifted his finger, still both in tears.

Jonathan lifted his pants as he pulled out the Tiffany blue box as Alessandra's eyes widen.

"Just so you don't scare off," Jonathan said as he opened the box.

"You kept it?" Alessandra said as the tears began to fall from her eyes.

"Of course I did," Jonathan said as tears began to fall. "Because the truth is you stubborn bitch," Jonathan said as Alessandra laughed through her tears. "My heart belongs to you," Jonathan said as both Alessandra and Jonathan began to cry.

Alessandra grabbed Jonathan as she began to kiss him as he inched onto the bed, in tears. Still holding the blue box.

Jonathan led Alessandra to the headboard as he gently pushed away from Alessandra. He laid the box gently next to Alessandra's nightstand as they made love to the same song for the rest of the night until they fell asleep.

Alessandra opened her eyes as she smiled, feeling Jonathan's warm body as the sunlight hit Alessandra's face.

"Did we make love the whole night?" Alessandra said in a happy whisper.

"In your dreams, lover," A demonic voice said as Alessandra began to scream.

Alessandra sat up immediately as tears began to roll down her face.

"Shhh, shhh," Jonathan whispered as he held Alessandra close.

Alessandra looked at Jonathan as she pinched him in panic as began to scream in pain.

"What was that for!" Jonathan said as Alessandra began to gasp.

"Hey, hey," Jonathan whispered as Alessandra curled close to Jonathan. "Are the nightmares coming back again?" Jonathan asked in concern.

"You remember?" Alessandra looked at Jonathan as tears began to roll from her eyes.

"Babe," Jonathan whispered as he wiped the tears from her eyes. "Of course I remember," Jonathan said as he began to kiss the top of her head. "It was the only way Abuela would let me stay the night."

Alessandra looked at Jonathan in fear in confusion as he pulled her close.

"You're safe now," Jonathan whispered in reassurance. "You are always are safe with me."

Alessandra began to take a slow deep breath in and out as she slowly began to calm down. She put her hand on Jonathan's bare chest as he shielded her eyes by the glare of something that reflected into her eyes. She uncovered her eyes as she looked at a familiar piece of jewelry on her left hand's ring finger.

"I'm surprised you agreed to wear it," Jonathan said as Alessandra pulled her hand in as she examined it.

"It's not a proposal," Jonathan reassured with a humbled smile. "Just a promise to you that I will always be here forever," Jonathan said as Alessandra pulled back.

"Jonathan?" Alessandra said as she looked at the ring. "I can't take this. I don't deserve it."

"Something that we both finally agree to," Jonathan said as Alessandra slapped his arm.

"Oh yeah?" Jonathan said as he playfully grabbed her arms as flipped over. Lying on top of her.

"Jonathan, I never meant to hurt you when I said no," Alessandra said as Jonathan smiled.

"I know," Jonathan said as he smiled gently at Alessandra. "As Abuela always said, we both don't have patients."

"But Jonathan, you don't deserve the heartbreak I caused," Alessandra pleaded.

"I'm not perfect myself," Jonathan said as he kissed Alessandra on the lips. "I'm sure I will eventually do the same to you, unintended, I might add."

"You would never hurt me," Alessandra said as he raised his eyebrows.

"Well, you know I like it rough," Jonatan said as he raised his eyebrows.

"Don't tempt me with a good time," Alessandra said as she moaned as Jonathan entered in. "I was thinking?" Alessandra said in pleasure as her eyes rolled back. Jonathan immediately stopped. He looked at Alessandra seriously.

"What is it, Princess?" Jonathan whispered as he laid on her bare breast. Which feeling his warm body on hers was something she enjoyed.

"I'll do the film with you," Alessandra said as Jonathan's eyes widen in shock.

"What made you change your mind? Jonathan asked in empathetic concern.

"I'm tired of running," Alessandra said as she looked at Jonathan's piercing eyes. "I'm tired of being afraid. After the incident in college," Alessandra told as Jonathan kissed her.

"Let's not talk about bad times," Jonathan said as she gently pushed Jonathan away.

"It happened again?" Alessandra said. "Well, almost happened," Alessandra told as Jonathan got off of Alessandra as he brought her close.

"What almost happened?" Jonathan asked in empathy.

"I lost my job," Alessandra said in shame.

"What do you mean?" Jonathan asked empathetically.

Alessandra sighed as she said, "My boss tried to assault me during a work trip sexually."

"Are you okay?" Jonathan said in concern.

"Yeah, nothing escalated," Alessandra said as she began to look nervous.

"So what happened?" Jonathan said as he gently turned Alessandra towards him as he brought her closer.

"It started with him rushing into my hotel room when we were in Kansas City on a work trip," Alessandra said in embarrassment. "Next thing you know, my ex's boss's hand melts off," Alessandra said as she looked at Jonathan in anxiety.

"Well, sounds like the asshole had it coming," Jonathan said as he brought Alessandra close.

"But that's not all," Alessandra said as she pulled away. "I killed a guy," Alessandra said as she looked at Jonathan with concern.

"You killed a guy?" Jonathan said in confusion.

"In my dream," Alessandra said as she gave into Jonathan's thrust in bringing her close again.

"Can I asked what happened in this dream?' Jonathan said as he looked at Alessandra.

"It was so realistic," Alessandra whispered as she dug into Jonathan's bare chiseled chest. "You were there," Alessandra said as she looked up at Jonathan briefly.

"I was there?" Jonathan asked in fake shock.

"You were glowing in this light blue flame, which was similar to my flames," Alessandra said as she began to recall the dream. "But mine was lavender, and there were gunshots!" Alessandra said as her body began to quake.

"Did they try to hurt you?" Jonathan said as Alessandra looked into his piercing eyes.

"They were shooting at me?" Alessandra said in a whisper. "After I attempted to help the girl the almost sexually assaulted," Alessandra said as she looked at the iPod that began to play The Weeknd's "In the Night."

"Sounds like you were a good Samaritan," Jonathan reassured.

"But I killed him while he was running away," Alessandra said as tears began to fall from her face.

"So, were they shooting at you?" Jonathan asked in concern.

"Well yeah," Alessandra said quickly.

"And you weren't hurt by the gunshots?" Jonathan asked as he turned away to hide the face that would give away the lie he was holding.

"No," Alessandra said as she looked towards the wall ahead of her. "They bounced off something I have never seen before," Alessandra said as she looked at Jonathan in concern. "Am I evil?" Alessandra asked in regard.

"You did the right thing, helping someone," Jonathan reassured as he held Alessandra's hand. "If it wasn't for whatever blocked the bullets," Jonathan said as he sighed. "You would have been shot," Jonathan said as Alessandra looked at the wall as she nodded. "Thank goodness it was just a dream, then," Jonathan said as Alessandra laid on Jonathan's ripped abdominal.

"I guess you're right?" Alessandra whispered.

"Babe, I have known you for a while, more than you would like to remember," Jonathan said as he kissed her head. "I know you well enough to know that you would never do something on purpose," Jonathan said as Alessandra looked up at Jonathan. "You are one of the most rational, righteous, and noble people I've ever known.

"You really think that?" Alessandra said in doubt.

"I don' think," Jonathan said as he kissed Alessandra's head once again. "I know!"

"Thanks, Charming?" Alessandra whispered as she kissed Jonathan on the lips.

"Now, can we please change this song, please?" Jonathan pleaded.

"How do you know it isn't something I can relate to?' Alessandra said as Jonathan belted his deep sultry chuckle.

"You're not a stripper," Jonathan said as he looked at Alessandra in annoyance.

"You never know what the future has in store!" Alessandra said as she raised her eyebrows.

"Hey!" Jonathan yelled as he pointed his finger towards Alessandra. She bit his finger as he pulled away from her mouth. "You're asking for it!"

"What are you going to do, Mr. Charming Porm Star of America!" Alessandra said in a giggled snicker.

"Change the music, and I will show," Jonathan said as he raised his eyebrows.

Alessandra flashed a flirty and sinful smile as she said, "Alexa play my music," which immediately played Berlin's "Take My Breath Away."

Jonathan looked at Alessandra as tears began to roll down his eyes. Jonathan smiled as he looked at the ring Jonathan one day hoped to see her wear. Which, although it was now just a promise ring. Made him the happiest man or extraterrestrial alive.

"I don't know what's wrong with my damn electronics these days," Alessandra said in confusion.

"I don't care how fucken stubborn you are, Alessandra," Jonathan said he mounted on top of her. "I am going to be your husband one day," Jonathan said as he gently caressed his hand down her arms as slowly made his way towards hers. Alessandra looked at Jonathan as she interlocked his hands with his.

"I promise you that when I am ready," Alessandra said as Jonathan stared into her honey hazel eyes. "I will say yes," Alessandra said as Jonathan shed a tear, which fell onto the tip of her brown nipple.

"And when you say yes," Jonathan said as Alessandra wiped the tears from his life. "Will be the happiest day of my life," Jonathan said as he kissed Alessandra gently and passionately.

Alessandra pulled away gently as she said, "Star crossed lovers, forever." Alessandra said as the tears began to fall from her eyes.

"Till eternity, Princess," Jonathan said as tears began to roll down his eyes. This washed along with Alessandra's happy and hopeful tears as they began to make love for the rest of the night. Which they spent together, inseparable until the filming of Jonathan's last scene.
