Taking Carmen’s hand and shaking it, she said in reply “Sorry you entered at such an awkward moment. I can imagine the shouting and vase smashing made us sound like two old lovers bickering over the crockery.” Shane wasn’t at all fussed with the girly chat, and rolled his eyes, going to park his ass on the nearest couch while he watched the two women get acquainted. “Well the old love smell was you. Not me. Least I would bathe after attending the Haven Swingers club sex expo.”
Marissa tried to smile, though she was gritting her teeth.. Honestly how this pair were even going to work together was going to be a miracle, when they paid out on each other with every parting shot being fired. If Carmen had any doubts about Shane’s affections, this was proof, that he was willing to hire the skanky Vampire rather than another Miley Cyrus wannabe. Last thing he wanted was to have his Carmen jealous.
“How do you put up with him, Carmen? I mean…he’s so…you know. Annoying.”
“She’s with me for the mind blowing sex.” Shane chimed in and picked up an autographed baseball and tossed it absently. Eyeing Carmen lazily, as he waited for more outbursts of how horrible he was from Marissa. As entertaining as it could be at times, Shane was starting to get frayed. Marissa shrugged, and then rounded on Carmen and said boldly. “I’m tri sexual. I’ll try anything once.” Was this a come on? If it was, Shane wanted to derail that thought right away.
“Remind me never to drive you past the zoo.”
“She’s with me for the mind blowing sex.” Shane chimed in before Carmen could speak. She glared at him.
“Girl talk, zip it.” Carmen warned him before looking at Marissa. “Besides the mind-blowing sex bit, I find him intriguing. Annoying, sure, but he makes up for it with the charm. He could charm a nun into forsaking her vows of celebacy.” Carmen grinned, winking at Marissa where Shane couldn’t see it. “And besides…it’s hard to ignore a man when he sends you mental naked pictures of himself. He’s sexy.” Carmen shrugged as if being with Shane was an old thing and not something new and exciting.
“Girl talk, zip it.”
Did she just tell him to zip it? She bloody well did. At first, Shane was miffed. He was the dominant in the relationship, and here she was in cahoots, with Ms Legs Spreader 2013. He placed the ball back carefully upon its stand, and then he himself rose to standing. “I see how it is. I’ll be in my room. Marissa…the blood doll I organised for you is being sent to your apartment special delivery. Even has a bow.” Then he gave Carmen the LOOK, as he passed her and then headed upstairs.
What could this mean? Only one way to find out. When Shane was out of earshot, and Marissa kept an eagle eye out, she suddenly became very serious. It was like a huge weight had just fallen off her shoulders, and she swanned over to the liquor cabinet, pouring herself a whiskey. “I swear…he scares me half to death. I have to put on…the bravest front, and be all that…but secretly, I know him too well.” She raised her glass, and said. “To the afterlife.” She downed the glass in one mouthful then gasped.
“How do you do it? I know I couldn’t.”
“It’s a challenge. Just have to find the balance between them.” she stated. “I’ve given up trying to figure him out, I kind of just roll with the punches and hang on for dear life.” She moved to the door, looking back at Marissa. “I better go and deal with him…it was a pleasure to meet you and I hope we can become friends.” Carmen gave her a smile before she went in search of Shane.
Carmen found him standing at his bedroom window, looking out into the night. She stepped into the room and quietly closed the door behind her, leaning back against it in a casual pose.
“Something wrong?” she asked in the quiet.
Shane was staring out of the window, when Carmen stepped into the room. He took a moment before answering, and the answer might leave her with more questions.
“Marissa is not my first choice when it comes to an employee or assistant. I find her carry on with those around her to be distracting, and in particular….I don’t like her making moves on what is mine.” Now it seems the jealous streak was showing from Shane. A rarity to be sure, but none the less it was there and intense. Glancing over his shoulder at Carmen, his face was like granite.
“Reason I hired her was so that I didn’t have you getting jealous over some slip of a girl that only understands the label on a coffee bottle. Marissa…has a brain, its that gaping yaw between her legs that bothers the fuck out of me.” Shane toyed with the curtain tassle and then let it go, as he turned away from the window.
As he approached Carmen he kept his fists to his side, then slowly released his fingers and reached up to stroke her cheek, with a tenderness, that at the moment with the tension, might be considered unsettling.
“She so much as sniffs in your direction….I’ll kill her.”
Carmen stared at him, surprised by the venom she could hear in his voice. She got a bit of thrill hearing him state she was his. She crossed her arms and waited, knowing there had to be more to this.
“Reason I hired her was so that I didn’t have you getting jealous over some slip of a girl that only understands the label on a coffee bottle. Marissa…has a brain, its that gaping yaw between her legs that bothers the fuck out of me.” He stepped away from the window, turning toward her with his fists clenched. She did not move from her position against the door.
He touched her cheek, and she held her breath. There was a tenseness in the feel of his hand upon her face, as if he wanted to strike out and hit something. Yet, she stood her ground, waiting for the axe to fall. No matter what happened, she was his.
“She so much as sniffs in your direction….I’ll kill her.” He stated matter-of-factly.
She stared at him, completely turned on by his jealousy and show of force.
“Then it’s a very good thing I’m not into women.” she smirked. And though he was the dominant one in their relationship, she just had to get some of her own back, to show him that she was a lot tougher then she looked. Surprising even herself, she reached out, grasping the front of his jacket in a tight-fisted grip and yanked him toward her, covering his lips with her own, planting a kiss so hot and passionate on him, it was a shocker their clothes didn’t catch on fire. She slipped her tongue into his mouth with a moan of pleasure, waiting for him to respond in kind.
Before Shane had met Carmen, women were always timid, or submissive to the point it was sickening. But when it came to Carmen, right from the get go, she had a fire in her, one that showed she was more than capable of great violence but also hunger. Shane’s jealous streak would come to bring about the fire inside of Carmen. Setting her off like a powder keg, as he declared that he would kill Marissa if she even sniffed at Carmen. It was that claim, the possessiveness that to Carmen was a massive turn on. Her reaction was swift, and bold. Actually grabbing at his jacket, like a jungle cat, and bringing him in for kiss that would sear his lips. It was so fucking hot. A hunger unprecedented. At first he was caught off guard by her boldness, but it only took a few seconds for that to change, as he reached around and gripped her buttocks drawing her up onto his hips. With her like a wild cat, licking the inside of his mouth, while their lips mashed together, he slammed her back into the wall. Hands free now that her back was supported by the wall, he started to tear away at her clothes, pulling back from the kiss, the dark growl of his voice as he said but one word.
“All yours, baby.” Carmen laughed huskily, yanking his tie and throwing it somewhere across the room. She ripped at his shirt, sending buttons flying everywhere and she bit and licked at his neck. She could feel her inscisors growing and she struggled for control. She wanted this, wanted him without the vampire within her controlling her actions.
Saying and doing were two different things, especially when it involved the two of them. She dropped her legs to the floor and planted her hands against the bare skin of his chest. She gave him a shove, which if successful, would push him to the other side of the room to fall back on the bed, where she would follow him down to pull off his pants.
Ever see a vampire being pushed across the room at full force by his mate? It was something else. Shane landed heavily upon the bed on the far side of the room, practically winded by the exertion of Carmen. He raised an eyebrow, and propped himself up upon his elbows, and cocked his head slightly.
Watching her cross the room, he started to pant heavily as she reached for his pants in an effort to take them off. Was this his Carmen showing her dominant side? They were equals after all, and now it seemed the cat was out of the bag.
“I always knew you were ambitious when it came to something you wanted. Kind of a turn on.” Shane said with a husky growl, then followed it with. “Don’t be gentle.”
“Awww.” she soothed, easing forward until she could inhale his masculine scent. She breathed out across his still-covered manhood, grinning a little when there was a small response. Grinning, she slid her tongue up the inside of his thigh, moaning at the taste of his skin. “Mmm.”
She reached up slowly, drawing the rest of his clothing from his body and freeing his shaft to her gaze. She simply couldn’t help herself at that point. She drew him into her mouth, shocked and seriously turned on by her own bravery.
And oh did he taste divine! Silky smooth and hot as sin. She suckled him deeper into her mouth, swirling her tongue this way and that way, while using her free hand to squeeze and massage his balls.
