In honor of Super Bowl Sunday, I wrote this all-new BONUS scene!! This scene would’ve taken place during Loving You (Jade Series #3). It shows Jade and Garret getting ready for a (fictitious, not today’s game) Super Bowl party. Enjoy!!
“Jade, let’s go.” Garret’s knocking on my door.
I jump off the bed and meet him at the door. “I think I’ll just stay here. I don’t really like football.”
“What are you talking about?” He comes inside, shutting the door behind him. “It’s Super Bowl Sunday. It’s a holiday and you’re celebrating all of them so hurry up and get dressed.”
I look down at my blue sweater and jeans. “I’m already dressed. You don’t like what I’m wearing?”
He hands me a small bag I hadn’t even noticed he was holding. “Here. I got you this.”
I reach in the bag and pull out a New England Patriot’s t-shirt. “I have to wear this? I’m not even a fan.”
He laughs and drops a kiss on my lips. “You are now. You live in New England and they’re in the Super Bowl. You have to support them.”
“Maybe I don’t like the Patriots,” I say, holding the t-shirt up. It’s a cute shirt. A fitted v-neck style that’s navy with red and white lettering.
“Then what team do you like?” He stands in front of me, his arms crossed. “You’ve never mentioned liking any particular team.”
“I like the Vikings,” I say, trying to sound confident in my answer.
He laughs. “You don’t like the Vikings.”
“How do you know? Since Iowa doesn’t have a team, it was either the Vikings, the Packers, the Bears, or the Chiefs and I picked the Vikings.”
Truthfully I have no interest in any of those teams, or any other pro football team, but Frank and Ryan love football and both of them are huge Minnesota Viking fans.
“You’re lying.” Garret steps closer, nudging my chin up so our eyes meet. “I know you don’t like the Vikings.”
“How do you know?”
“Because their color is purple and you hate purple.”
It’s so true. Although I don’t know anything about the Vikings, I could never be a fan because I don’t like their team color.
“Well, yeah, maybe I don’t like their color but that doesn’t mean I don’t—”
He kisses me. “Yeah, nice try, Jade.” He reaches down and pulls my sweater up.
“What are you doing?” I put my arms up as he lifts the sweater over my head.
“Getting you dressed. We need to go. Sean and Harper are waiting.” He takes the Patriots shirt from my hand and holds it in front of me. “Come on.”
I look at his long sleeve white t-shirt. “Where’s YOUR team apparel?”
“It’s in the car. I had to run home yesterday and get it. I have a team jersey.”
“Fine.” I slip the t-shirt on. It’s a little smaller than my other t-shirts and clings to my chest.
Garret stands back. “I did good. That’s freaking hot.”
I walk over to the mirror to check it out. “A sports t-shirt is hot?”
He comes up behind me, wrapping his arms around my waist. “On you it is. And this one fits you perfectly.” He moves my hair over and kisses the side of my neck.
“I thought we were in a hurry to leave,” I say, tilting my head to give him better access to my neck.
“Game doesn’t start for two hours. We’ve got time.”
“Then why were you telling me to hurry and get ready?”
“Super Bowl parties start way before the game starts. That’s how it works.”
“Then we should go.”
He spins me around and his kisses move to my lips, his hands on my hips.
I push him back. “What’s this? You think you’re gonna score here on Super Bowl Sunday?”
“Yeah, I do.” His cocky smile appears.
I smile back. “I think you’re right.”
