He made me come all over his tongue in that dream, his fingers relentless inside me.
Itâs all I can think about as he paces in front of me, his tall, muscular body lovingly encased in that charcoal suit.
Heâs talking about some event heâs going to tonight on behalf of the company; that much I know. His raspy, deep voice has become the perfect backdrop to my pounding heart.
My phoneâs vibrating in my palm. Iâm busy pretending Iâm taking notes as Drew speaks.
In reality, Iâm watching the headlines come in, one after the other, thanks to the alert I set on my phone.
I dare a quick peek at my notifications bar.
Barnard Wellington Missing.
Son of Corporate Tycoon Had Been in Hiding Prior to Disappearing.
Barnard Wellington: Everything You Need to Know About His Fall.
My heart races harder and I quickly return my attention to Drew, my mind a confused whirlwind of contradicting thoughts.
I donât know why, but I know this has to do with you. Bullshit. I know why. The psychotic look in his eyes when I refused to tell him what Stephen did to me is one Iâll never forget.
God damn it. Your tongue. I had forgotten how good it feels. He made me feel pleasure for the first time in seven years.
First, in the back of my car.
Then, he began haunting my dreams again.
Fuck. That dream I had two nights ago seemed so real. As if heâd actually been in my room, eating my pussy so lovingly.
Youâre my enemy. Yet he decided to help my mother of his own volition, before I even asked him to.
The gratitude is still a heady sensation in my veins. I want him, this man who is my enemy. This man that once betrayed me.
I shouldnât. God help me, I shouldnât. Hating him is second nature. Has been for the last seven years. It hasnât gone away.
I think I hate him even more now because all I can think about is walking up to him and biting that sexy, thick neck.
Iâd do it hard. Mark him. Possibly draw blood.
âIâll need you to come with me to the event tonight.â
His words slap me out of my sex-starved haze. âNo.â
Drew slows in his pacing. Then, he comes to a full stop, his head swiveling in my direction. âExcuse me?â His eyes are hard. His jaw clenches. This is both the man that seems to be obsessed with me and my boss glaring in outrage at my denial.
My entire body tenses on the chair, preparing for battle, every instinct aware of his aggression rising in the room. âI read your calendar and the briefs of what that event is going to entail. You donât need me with you.â
But I need distance. Time to myself. Looking at him is enough to erase any sexual trauma. I feared sex for so long.
Yet now Iâm crazed to suck his cock.
Writhe on it.
âYouâre right. I donât need you with me for this event.â He starts walking to me and something about his gait seems cruel. âWhat I do need is you by my side.â Drew grabs the armrests and leans down, trapping me with that ruthless, unrelenting gaze. âAt all times. I went seven years without youâdonât ask me to spend another needless minute more.â
âWhat?â I snap, annoyed at his closeness. At the things he makes me want to do. âYouâre planning on moving in, too, just to keep me close at all times?â
His lips twitch and all I want to do is rub my clit all over them. âDonât tempt me, baby.â
My thighs quiver. I tense them, knowing that heâll see if I press them together. My pussy aches so bad my teeth start grinding. âI have a choice.â The statement holds no authority, just the softness of a woman in heat.
God damn, his fucking scent.
I press back into the chair, desperate for some space.
Drewâs eyes search mine, before falling to my lips. I gasp as he bites his bottom lip slowly.
Heâs going to kiss me.
If he does, Iâm going to snap and attack him. Force him to fuck me right on his desk.
Heâs still staring at my lips, his pupils slowly expanding until his eyes appear black.
Panicking, I blurt out the first thing that comes to mind. âIf you want me to go the event, youâll answer a question for me and youâll answer it honestly.â
He backs up a bit at that, seeming surprised. âIâm your boss, remember?â His eyebrow quirks with amusement.
I glare at him and push against his chest until he finally eases away from me. âYou want me here more than I want to be here.â
His eyes flash with pain and I blink in surprise at the regret I feel. âYouâre probably right about that baby.â
That fucking word. The way he says it.
As if seven years didnât pass. As if he never betrayed me. As if weâre still back there, in the field, where heâs making all his pretty, glittery promises and pretending Iâm his world.
You are his world. No idea where that thought came from but I shove it down. Lifting my chin, I stare at him right in the eyes. âIf you want me to come, tell me. Whereâs Barnard Wellington right now?â
