‘Feels Like The First Time’
“And it feels like the first time, like it never I did before. Feels like the first time, like we've opened up the door. Feels like the first time, like it never will again, never again.” –Foreigner
Oliver walked down the hallway towards the bedroom while rubbing a hand over the back of his neck. It was a little after eleven on a Thursday night and he was exhausted. He couldn’t remember ever being so tired.
Then again he guessed that’s what having a four-month-old in the apartment would do. Chloe and Maura had moved in with him about a week ago when they realized it was getting too difficult to keep shuffling back and forth between his place and Watchtower constantly.
They had discussed things and decided it would be a good idea for her to move back in and so far, aside from the lack of sleep the invasion of his space didn’t bother him in the slightest.
Having them there, being a family, it was different, but if anything he enjoyed knowing that he had people to come home to at night. Oliver let out a small sigh as he pushed open the bedroom door and caught sight of his anxious looking girlfriend sitting up in bed. She arched an eyebrow at him hands fidgeting.
“Is she okay?” Oliver chuckled lightly as he made his way over to the bed, pulling the covers back and slipping beneath them. “She’s fine…just needed a diaper change. I told you I could do it.” Chloe rolled her eyes softly as she shifted towards him slightly.
“I didn’t think you couldn’t do it, I just thought maybe she was hungry…in which case you’d need me.” Oliver gave her a cheeky smirk, and winked. “I always need you Sidekick.” She rolled her eyes, which only made his grin widen as he pulled the papers off the nightstand and started working on them again.
Chloe gave him a sideways glance as she watched him working, her teeth sinking into her bottom lip. She and Oliver had been officially dating since three months before Maura was born and she supposed things with their relationship were progressing at a normal pace…expect for one thing.
They still had yet to have sex. At first it hadn’t bothered her. Taking care of an infant was a lot of work, even with Oliver helping and most of the time she was exhausted. Plus Emil had strictly prohibited any kind of sexual activity for the first eight weeks after Maura was born.
But now…well she wondered if maybe he no longer found her attractive. In the time that had passed since their daughter was born Chloe had spent most of her free time working out. It wasn’t something she did often, but she’d wanted to give the baby weight a little push and get it off of her as soon as possible.
And here she was four months later close to fifteen pounds lighter than when she first got pregnant, but still aside from the making out and a few intimate caresses here or there, she and Oliver were still at an impasse…and now with Maura sleeping longer and her feeling less tired she was ready to take things to the next level.
She shifted in the bed next to him, dropping more of the blanket so the green silk encasing her body was showing as she ran a hand over his bare arm before leaning her chin lightly against his shoulder, voice soft as she spoke. “Whatcha working on?”
Oliver frowned down at the papers. “Some new proposals on better advertising techniques and things like that. Nothing too exciting just a few things I need to--” His voice trailed off as he turned his head to look at her. Chloe leaned back and his eyes immediately dropped to the ample amount of cleavage showing from the green nightgown she wore.
He licked his lips and cleared his throat before glancing up and catching her eyes. She tilted her head slightly and he nodded towards her outfit. “Is that new?” Chloe grinned glancing down at herself as she ran a hand down her side.
“This? Why yes it is…do you like it?” Oliver opened and closed his mouth before pushing his papers aside and shifting so he was facing her, eyes a slightly darker shade of brown than normal. “I do…”
As his eyes took her in he couldn’t believe she’d had a baby less than five months ago she looked amazing. Her quiet voice knocked him from his thoughts. “I thought since the baby’s asleep…and it’s not too late maybe you and I could spend a little quality time together…”
Oliver grinned, “Yeah?” She nodded and before she could say anything else he was cupping her cheek and bringing his lips to hers. Chloe moaned into his mouth as he deepened the kiss, tongue stroking hers as he molded their lips together.
Minutes later they broke apart and she grinned her hand finding his naked chest as she pushed him back so he was leaning against the headboard before she shifted, lifting a leg over his until she was straddling his lap. His large palms automatically found her hips, gripping them tightly, the silk smooth beneath his hands.
He spoke, voice low as he slid his hands up gripping her face. “You’re sure?” A bright smile broke out on her face as one hand gripped his neck and the other caressed his arm. “I think we’ve waited long enough…don’t you?”
Oliver grunted and nodded. “I definitely do…” He moved quickly and then all of a sudden she was lying flat on her back with a smirking Oliver above her. Chloe shook her head chuckling lightly as his lips came back down on hers. Her hand slid into his hair as she returned his kisses enthusiastically.
When air became an issue they broke apart and he dipped his lips to her neck sucking on her pulse point. Her eyes fluttered shut as she ran a hand up and down his back pulling him closer to her. She couldn’t remember the last time someone touched her like this. “Oh god Ollie…”
He groaned feeling himself harden at the breathy tone of her voice. They’d been together for a little over six months and he’d be lying if he said he hadn’t been getting slightly antsy, but he’d resolved not to push her into anything she wasn’t ready for.
His thoughts came to an abrupt halt when he felt her small hand run down his stomach to the waistband of his boxers. She was just about to slip her hand inside when he gripped her wrist causing her to look up and frown. “What’s wrong?”
Oliver took a deep breath and shook his head. “Nothing…just I’m rung a little tight…so let’s not bring the big guy out just get…I’ve got things I want to do first…” He released her hand and she nodded swallowing heavily and licking her lips while watching him sit back on his knees.
He reached forward one hand sliding down her side making her shiver, a wave of arousal coursing through her. He grinned at her reaction before shifting his hand and cupping her breast, thumb brushing gently over her nipple.
Chloe jerked her head back, hands curling into the sheets as she let out a loud moan several different sensations running through her body at once as moisture pooled in her panties. Her breasts were still extremely sensitive and as he kneaded and groped at them she could feel her breathing increase.
Her hands flew out gripping his midsection trying to pull him closer to her as he slipped the straps of her nightgown off her shoulders. Oliver couldn’t stop touching her. He had been dying to get his hands on her for months and now that he finally had he was going to make it last.
He pulled the nightgown down her body, tugging it off her and tossing it on the floor behind him. Brown eyes glanced over every inch of her body before he let out a long breath as his eyes met hers. “You’re beautiful.”
Chloe flushed before pulling him down for a kiss, crushing their lips together as he spread her legs bringing her thighs up to rest over his hips. He rocked against her slowly and she gasped before turning her head sideways.
As he peppered her with small kisses his hand came back up to her breast squeezing experimentally. He felt her body arch against him and he repeated the action before deciding that the bra was in his way. Nimble fingers unhooked the front clasp and it popped open leaving her bare before him.
His eyes widened and his tongue darted out over his lips as he stared down at the twin orbs below him, before a pair of hands blocked his view. He blinked and frowned when he saw her pulling the material of her bra back together. Confusion filled him. Had she changed her mind already?
Oliver glanced up at her face, brows furrowed. He once again leaned back and motioned toward her chest. “What are you doing? I was looking at those…”
She opened her mouth right as he dipped his head down kissing the side of her breast. He cupped the other one in his hand squeezing the supple flesh gently as he brushed a thumb over her enlarged nipple making her eyes slide shut as she groaned low in her throat.
He repeated the action moving his mouth closer to her nipple with each kiss. Chloe could feel her body reacting to his touch as her stomach muscles clenched and she rubbed her legs together to ease the tension building in her body.
She knew she was close to coming and it was embarrassing how the little bit of stimulation he was providing already had her inner muscles fluttering lightly. He could hear her breathing picking up speed again as her body moved under his.
He could feel how tense she was and if her moans were anything to go by he’d say she was close to coming, which was incredibly hot. He was in the process of brushing his thumb against her nipple while he lifted his head and went to close his mouth over the other one, but was abruptly stopped by Chloe.
“Ollie…” He paused glanced up at her from under heavy lidded eyes, confusion present once again. “Yeah?” She sucked in a large breath, voice slightly shaky as his other hand continued to play with her breast. “You can’t…”
He was about to ask her what she was talking about when he felt a hint of moisture on his hand. His eyes strayed towards her chest and recognition flickered in his eyes. The reason her chest was several times larger than usual. He swallowed hard shifting his hands and nodding as he brought his lips to hers pressing a tender kiss against them.
He moved his body again and smirked at her. “Got it…not a big deal…I’ve got other places I can put my mouth.” He winked before pressing his lips between the valley of her breasts and kissing a trail down her stomach to the waistband of her lace panties.
Chloe felt the bed shift before his lips pressed against her inner thigh sending a shiver up her spine. He trailed his fingers to the elastic of her panties and pulled them down slowly. Chloe’s heart was beating frantically as her eyes stayed on his head that was bent between her legs.
She was freaking out just slightly, but did her best to make the butterflies in her stomach disappear. Oral sex wasn’t something she’d ever let someone perform on her. It always seemed too personal…for any of the men she was with…even Jimmy. And here Oliver was about to take it off the list of things she’d yet to experience.
She wondered if maybe she should say something, but she didn’t want to ruin the moment with thinking too much. Oliver shifted against the bed sliding the lace all the way down before grinning as he held her panties like they were some kind of trophy before tossing them over his shoulder, the scrap of lace landing on the floor at the foot of the bed.
Chloe swallowed heavily and it took everything in her not to clamp her legs shut when he glanced back down between them. He reached out hands gripping her thighs and he could feel the tension in her body. He arched an eyebrow concern filling his gaze as caught a glimpse of apprehension in her eyes.
He tilted his head pausing in his actions, thumbs massaging her inner thighs in an attempt to calm her down. “Everything okay?” She opened and closed her mouth once and then twice before she spoke, voice strained.
“I’ve never…I mean…no one’s ever…” Her voice trailed off and she motioned towards him making Oliver blink several times as he caught her meaning.
She bit her bottom lip and shook her head. “No…” A slight flush covered her cheeks and Oliver gave her a warm smile before pressing another kiss on her upper thigh causing her to suck in a deep breath as he spoke, grin on his face. “This is going to sound so weird…but you just made this so much hotter for me….”
She chuckled lightly but he could still feel the tension in her body as he leaned down and spoke between placing small kisses alternatively against her thighs. “Relax….trust me.”
She took a deep breath as she felt one of his fingers slide up and down her slit. At the hint of pressure against her, she arched forward seeking out his touch. Oliver grinned when he heard her moan and he pushed two fingers inside of her groaning at how warm her body was.
He’d dreamt about this moment and yet his dream didn’t even match up to the real thing. She was wet, warm and willing and he basked in it. He couldn’t remember how long it had been since he was with a woman…but it was definitely before he found out she was pregnant.
He shook himself from his thoughts as Chloe’s moan broke through the silence in the room. She could feel him thrusting his fingers in and out of her, a heavy pressure building in her lower belly as she lifted her hips lightly to increase the pressure of his hand.
Seconds later his head dipped down and she felt his tongue sliding over her slit as he used his fingers to spread her open for him. She gasped, “Oh god…” and he grinned against her moist flesh as he darted his tongue out flicking it against her clit before sucking the hardened nub into his mouth. A wave of pleasure flew through her body shooting straight to her core as she arched up beneath him, one of his hands gripping her thigh as the other continued to stroke her.
“Ollie…yes…” He could already feel her inner walls fluttering and a strangled sound left his throat at how responsive she was to his ministrations. On a slightly egotistical level he couldn’t help the pride that filled his chest at being the first man she trusted enough to make her come this way.
Her arousal coated his fingers and mouth as he quickened his pace, her moans and whimpers becoming shorter more erratic as he flicked his tongue against her clit hard quickening the pace of his fingers inside of her. Chloe couldn’t help moving her hips, thrusting against his face as breathy words fell from her lips. “More…oh god…yes”
She couldn’t help it. Arousal flowed through her entire body as she gripped her own breast with one hand, the other curling into his hair holding his head to her body as he continued to mercilessly attack her clit with his mouth. “Ollie…Ollie…”
She felt her body clenching as she mumbled his name over and over again. And when he grazed his teeth lightly against her clit she came, exploding in his mouth as her inner muscles contracted around his fingers and she cried out his name.
Oliver drew out her orgasm as he continued moving his fingers in and out of her body for a minute before moving up her body, tugging at his boxers and tossing them to the floor. Chloe’s eyes fluttered open when she felt him settled between her thighs, as he reached across the bedside table and pulled open the drawer.
Her hands rubbed up and down his back as she heard him shuffling through things before he grunted and pulled out the small foil package. He ripped it open with his teeth, pulled the condom out and reached between them rolling it down over his hardened shaft before fisting himself and pumping his shaft a few times. He position himself at her entrance and she licked her lips, heart rate picking up pace as she felt him nudge against her.
Oliver met her eyes as he leaned down cupping her cheek, voice soft. “I don’t think you realize how much I love you Chloe…” Her face softened tears prickling in her eyes slightly as she reached up thumb caressing the skin under his eye, voice barely a whisper as she spoke.
“Of course I do…Ollie,” she gave him a watery grin, “you’re my very own hero…my knight in shining leather. You saved me…and I love you so much too…and every day…I just fall more in love with you.” He swallowed heavily his chest bursting with the kind of love he never thought he’d find after everything he’d done in his life.
He leaned in capturing her lips with his as he thrust into her body in one quick stroke, pausing when he felt her gasp into his mouth as her nails dug into his back. He kissed her thoroughly and a minute or so later she wrapped her legs around his waist, inviting him into her body even further.
Oliver swore lightly his head falling briefly against hers as he pulled out slowly and rolled his hips into hers until he was surrounded by her heat once more, "God, you're so tight..."
Chloe tightened her legs around him as she felt him fill her, stretching her, making her body ache from the inside out. She arched her body up to meet his a strangled moan leaving her throat at his words as he pushed back into her just a little faster than before.
Chloe felt full as his body encompassed hers, his hands roaming the plans of her skin and the more he moved the more she got used to the feel of him inside her. She’d never imagined that sex with Oliver could be this good.
Dreams had not done him justice. He was taking her to new heights of pleasure and she was pretty sure after this she’d never get tired of him. Chloe gasped as her muscles coiled beneath him. She could feel her orgasm approaching, but not quickly enough she wanted more.
“Harder Oliver…I’m so close...” She gripped his head lips pressing against his jaw as she sucked in a few quick breaths. He had wanted to take their first time slow, make it last, but her insistent moving, and clenching of muscles was driving him closer to the edge. He wasn’t sure how long he could hold out after his lack of sexual activity lately, but he’d be damned if he came before her.
Oliver gripped her hips, angling them slightly as he slammed back into her, murmuring softly as he quickened his pace. He could feel a tingling at the back of his spine and he clenched his jaw as he continued to plunge inside of her in quick, hard thrusts.
He dropped his hand between them, thumb rubbing against her clit fast as his lips fell to her breast again sucking lightly on the skin around her nipple making her body jolt against his. Chloe tossed her head back crying out his name as he felt her inner muscles clamping around him, a quiver running down her spine as she arched up, her passage squeezing him tightly.
Oliver groaned thrusting into her two more time before exploding inside of her. He collapsed against her lips moving up to her collar bone pressing a light kiss there. His body felt listless as he dropped his head to her neck and she tilted her head to the side hands running up and down his back as she tried to calm her breathing.
She placed a kiss to his shoulder, breaking the silence a minute later. “…Wow…that was…wow…” He lifted his head grinning down on her as he nodded placing a soft kiss against her lips, their sweat slicked bodies still intertwined.
“It was definitely wow…Jesus…” he shifted pulling out of her carefully making her wince and moving out of the bed to throw out the condom. He came out of the bathroom less than a minute later tossing the covers aside, getting into bed and pulling Chloe against his side as he placed a kiss against her head. She curled into him placing her head on his chest as he wrapped an arm around her.
He stroked her back lightly as she drew shapes on his chest with her fingers a comfortable silence settling between them. She licked her lips lightly and spoke softly. “I was starting to think…maybe you didn’t find me attractive anymore…” Her voice trailed off and he tilted his head looking down on her with a frown.
“What in the world would make you think that?”
Her hand came up caressing his face as she shook her head. “I love you Oliver…I want us to be close…I’d never feel like you were pushing. You’ve been so amazing…”
His voice trailed off as he shifted moving over her once again as he waggled his eyebrows pulling the covers over his head as he slid down her body hands pressed against the bed as he kissed her stomach. Chloe chuckled her hands weaving into his hair.
“Is that so Mr. Queen? Someone seems quite ambitious.” His muffled voice came from under the covers as he spoke against her skin, warm breath making her shiver. “Damn right….and just think of all the different positions I’m going to contort you body into…oh look at that…looks like it’s time for round two.”
Chloe moaned as she felt his fingers graze against her right as the baby monitor next to them sounded, a loud wail falling from it as the four month old broke the silence in the room. Oliver paused before popping his head out from under the covers.
Chloe bit her bottom lip and he sighed pouting slightly and moving to get up, but she pressed a hand against his chest causing him to look at her. She smiled slightly. “You went last time…I got this.” She cupped his cheek, pressing a kiss against his lips before moving out of the bed, grabbing her nightgown from the ground, and pulling it over her head.
She glanced over her shoulder and gave him a quick glance, voice amused. “Don’t head to be just yet Romeo…I might have another round in me yet…”
She winked before making her way out of the room and into the hallway towards Maura’s room. Oliver watched her go and his chest warmed. He’d had his doubts at first…but this thing between him and Chloe…it was going to work. He could feel it. She was it for him. This life, Oliver wouldn’t find anything better than it…and he wouldn’t want to.
