- MAVERICK’S P.O.V
- I thought about what happened the night before while on the plane to Florence with Natalie on the other side of the plane and Maya sitting next to her. I had a business appointment but decided to take Natalie with me. Since I have not really taken her anywhere, I was beginning to feel like I was being unfair to her and also since I somehow have decided to keep her. I was still bound on finding out what brought about the entanglement. I wanted to know and I was going to find out.
- I looked at her, her eyes were focused on her phone and she was smiling, for the first time since I knew her, I was seeing her smile. Her smile was pretty, and wide. It was contagious because it made me smile too and I immediately began to feel jealous. I wanted to be the only reason she was smiling. I exhaled and closed my eyes as I began to reminisce. How my body had reacted so much towards her from the very first day I met her. I wanted to take her right there in my office, I wanted to have her in my arms all night but at the same time, I felt so wrong, everything felt wrong to me. I don’t know why I felt that way. But I also didn’t want to take her without knowing she wanted me as much as I wanted her. I didn’t want to distract myself too much from the main goal. I swallowed painfully as I could feel blood vigorously run down my cork, I felt it twist in my pants. I shouldn’t be thinking of her, I shouldn’t, especially not on a business trip where she also is present. That would make it harder for me.
