Chapter 6 NO STRESS PLEASE

  • "Loraine, what
  • did you put yourself into this time? A date with Dordrich, really? I thought
  • our circle was closed. We didn't agree on you messing with another man."
  • Danner is clearly
  • frustrated by what he's read in that tabloid.
  • With a slight feeling
  • of irritation I listen to him, since when do I owe him an explanation about my
  • sex life? He is crossing the line more and more. "Don't get ahead of
  • yourself, Danner. You don't have exclusive rights on me. You were dating a
  • fashion model last year, did I tell you anything about that? You're free as
  • long as you're safe, and that's how it is with me.", I remind him coldly.
  • I certainly don't need a possessive lover now,
  • Danner is starting to get overconfident. Yesterday he had no problem with Alex
  • joining in, but today he is angry with Dordrich being associated with me.
  • Perhaps he considers him a serious rival? Letting go of Danner is not something
  • I would want to do, but his behavior is really unacceptable.
  • "It's not the same”, he argues. “She was the face of my new product launch and it was
  • inevitable that she was seen with me a few times. But you and I are committed
  • partners, if there are any changes you should at least let me know. I shouldn't
  • have heard it from the tabloids."
  • Oooohhhh Goodness, this is getting tiring. I
  • think quality also comes with stress. Danner is my favorite, but not
  • indispensable. And I'm not waiting for more stress in my life, bed partners
  • should provide relaxation, aren’t they?. "Danner, let's put this behind
  • us. I'm stressed right now. What can you do for me instead?", I ask
  • seductively. A hoarse laugh comes through my phone, he knows exactly what I
  • mean, he never disappoints me.
  • "I'll pick you
  • up in half an hour, babe. I'll call you when I'm in the underground."
  • He disconnects the call right away, he
  • certainly doesn't want to waste any time. Danner has a private parking space on
  • my company property, his privileges here are almost equal to mine. Before long,
  • he will have lots of power here, maybe even the authority to sign certain
  • documents in my name too.
  • I now realize that
  • I've given him too much space in recent years to think he's the most important
  • man in my life, hence his attitude today. But I will have to slow it down, if I
  • still want to keep him in my life, I will have to set the boundaries sharply.
  • "Kaylah", I
  • call that bitch secretary of mine. "I'm going to take a break. Take the
  • stress out of my system". She enters my office, giving me a knowing look,
  • a mocking smile on her lips. I know that she knows, this nosy girl, nothing
  • escapes her attention.
  • My bag and phone, and
  • I’m out the door to the elevator.
  • When I reach the
  • parking lot, I feel a strong hand grab me tenderly and push to one side.
  • Startled, I turn my face and can just recognize the masculine features of a
  • man. His expensive cologne mix body odor penetrates my nostrils, I inhale it
  • even more. His lips meet mine in a sweet kiss, our tongues intertwine. This
  • feels so good. My hands go their own way behind his head, wriggling his hair
  • and pulling his head closer.
  • Our kiss deepens, a
  • shiver runs through me. This is unashamedly delicious, I could go on like this
  • for hours. Breathlessly our lips part and I look straight into the face of
  • ........ Dordrich!!
  • Who else? Who else
  • can give me this feeling of completeness?
  • "Hey," I
  • gasp. "What are you doing here?".
  • A croaky laugh
  • escapes his throat. "I just can't forget you. You're wandering through my
  • mind, I can't get you out of my head. Woman, what have you done to me?".
  • We now both laugh with relief at his words, this is the nicest compliment I've
  • had from a man. My arms go around him again and I press my body against him. He
  • strokes my hair, while another burning hand on my back pushes me closer too. It
  • seems like we can't get enough of each other.
  • He searches for my
  • lips again and after one last kiss, he lets go of me and walks to his
  • black-gray Maserati. My eyes are glued to him, his confident steps, his
  • muscular back. When my eyes fall on his well-groomed slender fingers, all kinds
  • of amorous fantasies run through me.
  • Before he gets in, he
  • glances at me and given the suspicious grin around his mouth, he must have read
  • the longing in my eyes. 'I must have this man no matter what. Only once, I
  • promise. This hunger is unbearable', flashes through my mind. For the first
  • time I have experienced this feeling of raw lust for a man.
  • He drives away under
  • my staring eyes.
  • And then I remember
  • my meeting with Danner.
  • Shit!
  • Hopefully, he hasn't
  • left his office yet. I take my phone out of my bag and press his number. I
  • called out and he doesn't answer. A second time, he still won't take the call.
  • This is the first time in the years of our relationship that he rejects me.
  • Strange!
