Nero stopped by my room from his office the next day. He said he’s too tired to even walk to his room so he wanted to stop by my place.
I didn’t stop him from doing so. I was only busy drawing designs of the country club and I was almost done with the golf course. I’d only have to design the restaurant and pools next before presenting this to Mr. Bennett and to Nero.
“You smell so good.” Nero whispered as he sniffed my hair. He hugged me from behind as we watched the night beach from the balcony.
I bit my lip and held his hands resting on my stomach. I wanted us to stay like this. His arms wrapped around me make me feel secure. It makes me think no one could ever hurt me. He makes me worries go away every time he holds me close. It’s like nothing else ever mattered than the both us in the moment.
“I missed you today.” He whispered and it sent millions of shivers to my spine.
I smiled. “I’m trying to finish the plates now so I can present them all to you before I leave for Chicago again.”
