His hazy mind was instantly cleared of his animalistic desires.
"You…" he could not say anything else. He didn't know what to say to her. "You're still a virgin?" he asked, clear disbelief evident in his tone.
He knew it! In the back of his mind, he knew that she must still be a virgin. He had avoided looking at her face once he started touching her because he felt like he was doing something wrong, but he ignored this feeling and convinced himself he was wrong because of how she responded to his touch. The way her body moved, the way she moaned, and the way he felt just by touching her, distracted him so much that he chose to believe these signs instead.
When the girl nodded, his black pupils narrowed and a fleeting emotion flashed in them but he blinked and they were back to normal, as if it was an illusion.
He breathed deeply as he closed his eyes looking as though he was counting to ten. When he opened his eyes again, he seemed angry, even though his face was again, undecipherable. She just felt it.
Abi was shocked. Did she fail the test?
"Tell me… why are you still untouched?"
She blinked. She really didn't know how to answer him, so she said the most logical thing she could think of.
"Because I've never had a boyfriend before."
"I wasn't interested in anyone. I don't know… I haven't really thought about it." She knew that was a bit of a half truth. She knew exactly why she had never had a boyfriend, but there was no way she was going to tell him!
"Don't tell me you have never been kissed either."
She blinked. She just sat there in silence as she looked around the room.
The man shook his head in disbelief upon realizing the answer behind her silence. He ran his hands through his hair. He sensed that she might have not been with a man before but… to not even have been kissed at all before that night was unbelievable! This was why he just couldn't shrug away the possibility that he might have been wrong in thinking she was pure and innocent - because it was very hard for him to believe that someone could still be a virgin at 22 in this day and age! Did this woman want to become a nun at some point and then change her mind about it or something? How did she even get mixed up with someone like him?
He got up and dressed himself.
"Get dressed." He ordered and the still stunned Abi helped herself up, covering herself with a sheet.
"I… I… wait… Did I pass the test?"
"No, you failed," he said, running a hand through his hair again.
Abigail was so shocked she couldn't speak for a while.
"W-why? Is it because I really didn't attract you at all?" she asked and the man could tell right then that this girl was actually so disarmingly unaware of her beauty. She just had no idea at all but he wasn't going to tell her that. Instead, he brought his attention back to the current issue.
"I don't do virgins," he replied instead and Abi was again dumbstruck. "Get dressed now. I'll send you back home," he added and Abigail started to panic. How could this be? How could she not have passed his test? She could still feel her skin throbbing from where he had kissed and touched her. Her heart was still beating uncontrollably and her body was still flushed red from his advances. After all of that, she still failed the test?
Abigail shook her head. "No. I'm not going home. Not until I pass your test and become your girlfriend." She was so damn sure and determined that the man could only pinch the skin between his brows in frustration. This girl… this little lamb was driving him insane!
"I told you. I don't do virgins. I don't like inexperience girls. You failed the test," he repeated, but the girl just glared at him, showing no sign of giving up anytime soon.
At that moment, Abi didn't know why, but she just felt that if she gave up on him now, she might never ever see him again. He just gave off that feeling that he was going to disappear from her life after this and the thought of it made her clutch the blanket beneath her hands, hard.
"Okay, so if I return as a woman of experience, I will pass the test, right? Is that what you're saying?"
The man was speechless.
"What did you say?"
"That's what you want, isn't it? Then I'm going to go out there and get some of this so called experience… until there won't be any reason for you to turn me away."
The man was dumbfounded and he didn't know why, but there was suddenly an uneasy feeling in the pit of his stomach.
