Chapter 4 Caelum's Pov Continues

  • Hell, she had me fooled. I felt special, I was her first. She trusted me with her purity and I fell harder for her. It was hard to find an eighteen year old virgin but of course she wasn't eighteen, she was younger than that. Every time I saw her she had a smile on her face, mischief burning in her eyes and I loved it. I loved the way she was with me, for me. Every time I saw her, she made me feel giddy like a little girl that received a Barbie doll house she longed for but I didn’t care.
  • Aurora reappears a few feet away, this time she's dressed, barely but it's more than she was wearing earlier. Cassian was right, angels do sing hallelujah when you see her. She's signing autographs with her lips and lipstick. All men surrounding her will be jerking off onto the papers, imagining it's her mouth hanging open, waiting to receive their come, perverts.
  • Aurora notices me once again but looks away immediately. Another man holds out his right hand.
  • Yikes, way to be obvious.
  • She pulls another lipstick from her hair and wears it before placing a kiss into his palm. Her lip curls up slightly but the expression is eliminated as fast as it came. She signs his arm, flashing him a million dollar smile that will have him emptying his wallet.
  • Right now he feels special, she not only kissed his palm but she smiled at him as she signed her name on it. He moves and another takes his place, Aurora can make fifty men feel like one in a million at the same time.
  • Exhibit A: The way she's working the room.
  • She smiles at the man in front of her, holding her heart dramatically as he tries to charm her.
  • Don't do it buddy, she'll chew you up and spit you out so fast, you'll never see it coming. Aurora broke my heart, a heart I didn't know I still had till I met her.
  • A song I don't recognize starts playing and Cassian nudges me. “I'm going in, watch me work.”
  • I don't respond, I should but I let him move seeing he is hypnotised by her. Bishop returns, standing right in front of me with the widest smile on his face. I don't see why he's so happy, he is blocking my view, my foot nudges his feet and he moves, declining in the seat that Cassian occupied until a minute ago.
  • “Where are the idiots?”
  • “Ryker went to find Lia, and Cassian is..” I trail off, raising my glass to where Cassian is, he is with Aurora.
  • Bishop whistles, “Hot. I think I just came.”
  • I don't respond to him, I proceed to watch the exchange between Cassian and Aurora. He's talking and she's smiling, batting her eyelashes at him.
  • The more he tries to charm her, the wider she smiles, he seems to crack a joke and she laughs, placing a hand on his shoulder, she brushes his arm softly before pulling away.
  • Smooth, Aurora knows how to tease a man until he is on his knees, begging her for more, for a taste, a tiny drop of whatever she can give him. Even when she was younger she had this power only she was oblivious to it but now, it's evident she's acknowledged it and she knows exactly what she's doing to these men, to Cassian.
  • Cassian has been following her for weeks now, she knows what she's doing and it won't end in his bed like he thinks.
  • Aurora has a maliciousness about her, it's what she's here for. She knows all eyes are on her, and not in an innocent bewildered manner and I know for a fact she feels my eyes on her, yet, she acts like I don't exist, she is pretending I'm not sitting here.
  • Like she didn't see Cassian with me, like seeing me didn't strike one reaction out of her.
  • What's worse, she's pretending the last few minutes on stage didn't happen, fuck minutes, the last few years. God I'm going to make her pay for what she did to me.
  • For each lie she fabricated, I will make her pay and mercy? Yea, I most likely won't show her any.
  • Aurora ruined me for any woman after her, Scarlett included. There's no way that fact will change but I have had the urge to hurt her like she did me for so long, finally doing it will give me peace and best of all, she's fair game.
  • Cassian manages to drag Aurora to us, keeping her at arms reach, at the exact moment Ryker arrives, without my sister. I guess she has things to tend to. There's another set of dancers on stage but I'm not watching, neither is Bee. I look at Aurora, she looks better up close.
  • Her hair is longer, her lips are crimson, she licks them and I look up to her eyes, still beautiful as ever but something is missing, they look empty. Her jawline is so pretty I can't wait-
  • “Rumor, these are my friends, Ryker, Bee, I mean Bishop and Caelum.” Cassian says, pointing to each of us with his phone as he tells her our names.
  • Why does he have his phone, did he get her number?
  • Ryker and Bishop smile at her and she returns their smiles before looking at me with the same phoney smile. “I think I know him.”
  • Cassian's smile fades, he thinks any girl that says she knows me with a smile like that has been under me and he's not wrong, she has been under me, only she was smaller back then.
  • “You think?” I ask, setting my drink on the table beside me. I've had too much already. Aurora nods confidently, “Cassian, why are you introducing the pretty lady?” I ask, my eyes staying on Aurora's empty eyes, her mouth curved into a fake grin.
  • “I want to make her my friend so I brought her to meet my other friends.” he winked at me.
  • “We are friends Cassian, as of ten minutes ago.” she grins, her eyes darting to Cassian who places a hand on her waist.
  • Ryker sees how tense I become and cuss’s under his breath.
  • I relax in my seat, ignoring Cassian's hand on Aurora. It shouldn't affect me that he is touching her, many men probably touch her, that's why she appears not to feel Cassian's fingers playing on her waist.
  • I ignored that too, staring into her eyes, “Friends, is that so baby girl?” I ask, in response, Aurora frowns but nods. “Come here.”
  • She scowls at me and laughs, “What the fuck?”
  • “I said come here.” I repeat and this time I don't give her a chance to reply, I reach my hand out and grab hers, before she can react, I pull her into my lap and she gasps.
  • I secure my arm around her waist to ensure she doesn't leave and she doesn't, instead she glares at me furiously, even then there's no fire in her eyes. “You know, I might look like a better version of Barbie but make no mistake boy, I'm not a Barbie doll. Watch it next time, I could scream and have you beat up and thrown out but you seem to have a face too pretty to ruin so I'll let you off with a warning, no one touches me without asking me or pay-”
  • I smash my lips onto hers, I couldn't help myself, a bratty vixen turns me on. At first she tries to fight me off but she relaxes, kissing me back but she's gone, her lips are on mine but she doesn't seem to let any emotion mark them. Cassian screams, "not fair." Making me grin against Aurora's lips.
  • She tastes familiar, like the strawberry ice cream my niece forces me to eat but better mixed with red wine, she's drunk, that explains the bravery. A woman that screwed me over wouldn't be this bold in front of me, she'd be terrified but fuck, the mixture of strawberries and wine is unbeatable.
  • I aggravate our kiss, kissing her harder to see if I feel different, to see if she kisses me with something, any emotion but nothing. The only sensation I get is blood rushing down to my cock, Aurora moans in my mouth every six seconds, not because she likes it but because she has to, it's like a pattern.
  • She does it exactly after six seconds, I've been counting and not once has she missed it. Frustrated, I tug on her bottom lip as I end the kiss.
  • Her eyes widened, it's as if she wasn't here until I bit on her lip. I watch as a bead of blood appears on her lip. I lean forward once again and suck on it, when I pull away she's stunned. I grin at her as she scowls at me, “Still a mouthy little brat, huh Aurora?” I ask. The moment her name leaves my mouth everyone at our table gasps.
  • “Aurora?” Cassian gasps, “As in...fuck! You knew all along and let me think I had a shot?”
  • Ryker looks at Aurora and shrugs, “Small world, I didn't recognize her before but it makes so much sense now.”
  • Bishop chuckles, making me look at him. He raises his glass to me and smirks, “I told you all you had to do was go to a strip club.” he jokes.
  • When Aurora left, he had one motive, drag me to strip club to find a professional to fuck but I didn't bother, I never paid for pussy I sure as hell wasn't going to start then.
  • I turn to Aurora, who has been trying to get off my lap. “Are you fucking Cassian or you're ready to pay? ”
  • Her wiggling halts as she gazes at me, “Pay what?”
  • “Do I need to remind you what you did to me seven years ago?”
  • She rolls her eyes and shakes her head in disbelief, “Hmm, seven years ago. Lets see, I was having fun, I met a fuck boy, we fooled around and life happened but seven years later he wants me to pay? For what exactly, making you smile?” she asks, I don't respond and she feigns a gasp, “No? Hmm, then I suppose I should apologise for spreading my legs for you, or perhaps I should apologise for giving-”
  • My hand goes flying to her throat and she grins wickedly, biting her lip in a way that makes me cock twitch. “Don't be an asshole. I'm off the clock, I need to get home before it's too late.”
  • I hate this woman, rage builds up inside me and it's visible, it doesn't seem to faze her, instead of cowering she bats her eyelashes at me. I fell in love with this woman but now, I feel nothing at all and she's to blame. I tighten my grip on her throat and she snickers at me. “Your fun ruined my life. Your fun broke my heart, a heart you awakened but had no right to break. These guys at this table strived to help me pick up the pieces but you left with them. Now guess who I'm going to break?”
  • This time she's silent, her smile fades and it's my turn to smirk. My friends don't say a word, except Bishop who makes a smartass remark I almost miss because I'm consumed in Aurora's reverie. I release her throat and loosen my grip on her waist, her body loosens up when I do but her peace is short lived by my hand spanking her, hard. She jerks off my lap and walks away. I watch her closely, she heads to the bar.
  • “You not only kissed the woman of my dreams, you threatened her and spanked her.” Cassian grumbles.
  • “The woman of your dreams is in a den of vultures and she's the ringmaster. Great taste, but awry woman. Aurora will ruin you, no other woman after her will feel the same no matter how tight or warm the cunt is.” I don't look at him as I reply, my gaze stays on Aurora, I could let her get away and chase her but I can't seem to stop watching her.
  • “Of course, you're speaking from experience.” I hear Ryker say and Cassian agrees.
  • Am I? Maybe.
  • “Fuck off, you wouldn't have a chance with this woman. She's a tease, you'd never get her in bed with charm. She's a different breed this one, you're too cute for her, she already had you on your knees before you saw her bare pussy. I'd hate to see what you'd do if you saw it.”
  • Cassian snarls, “I will worship her like the goddess she is, if she wants me on her back like she does men during her acts, I will oblige.”
  • Bishop chuckles, “If her act is half as good as what I saw on the other side, I'm here for it, sorry Caelum but your revenge can take a shit.”
  • I don't respond to him, I keep my eyes on Aurora, she's sipping beers at the bar like water.
  • “The best, you should come see on Monday, her partners act like it's the best pussy, begging to touch her.” Cassian tells him, I don't have to look at him to know he winked after his statement but I do, and he winks at me too. “I am sure it must be some good pussy to have you wanting it seven years later, I mean, can I still tap that? She said she'd consider picking me for her act. Do I have your blessing?”
  • “My blessing? I don't care who you fuck Cassian, if you want that vulture, go for it.” I say, licking my teeth right after. Aurora would undoubtedly eat him for breakfast.
  • “Bet, but I'm intrigued, how did they bag such a woman, she can run her own private club and I'd pay millions.”
  • I nod, I would too. Any sane man would, which leaves me thinking...
  • How did she end up here? Her parent's are well off, her mother is a doctor and her father owns a successful company. Aurora was too much of a feminist to be working in a place like this. Something about Aurora and a sex club doesn't add up, a strip club yes but sex club? No, something is wrong here and it's not just the emptiness of her gaz-
  • Ryker's words cut through my thoughts as I turn to look at him, “Umm Cae, looks like your runaway bride is trying to kill herself.”
  • I follow his gaze to where Aurora stands, drinking tequila shots like they're water off a waiter's tray. “Shit.” I mummer.
  • She's already too drunk and now tequila?
  • I rise and take my keys off the table, Cassian grins too widely. If not to fuck her, Cassian will befriend her just to piss me off. It's not often that someone gets under my skin, fuck often, it never happens that's for sure. I walk over to Aurora and grab her by the arm, dragging her out with me, the alcohol makes it hard for her to react. By the time she reacts, she's strapped to the passenger seat in my car. “Open this goddamn door.” she warns, I don't miss the distress in her body language.
  • “What's your address?”
  • “I'm not telling you where I live psycho.” she grimaces, “If you don't open this door I'm going to start screaming and I will report you for harassment. You could go to jail for that you know, and looking at you, you're going to drop the soap a whole fucking lo-”
  • I turn away from her, placing one hand on the steering wheel, I start the car, Aurora plunges into the seat when I begin to drive. I grin, “Fine, have it your way Aurora.”
