He looked at me longingly with a soul-piercing, fiery gaze I had never seen before. Something long-buried within me churned; I felt myself getting flushed, and for a moment I thought I might actually faint. Keep it together, Lucy.

I tried my best to say something to him as he walked toward me, but no sound came out when I opened my mouth to speak. What is happening to me right now? I felt my knees weaken and my heart fluttered hard in my chest. Whatever his intentions, at that moment he didnโ€™t need to speak to make them clear. I recalled our last talk, those words he had uttered to me about how he felt... and suddenly, talking was no longer necessary.

In an instant, this man that I had known for years, but in that moment, I would have mistaken for a complete strangerโ€”had me pressed up against the stacks behind me, effectively pinning my body with his, knocking a few books over in the process. He was clearly unbothered, his eyes focused only on mine; the sudden noise of falling books had no effect on his six-foot-three figure towering over my petite five-foot-two frame. I cannot believe this is happening. Fuck. Me.

He looked me up and down slowly, drinking my figure in, growling softly, running his strong and weathered hands gingerly down my arms before grabbing me squarely by the hips. His soft, plump lips parted, and I found myself wondering what he might taste likeโ€”and, despite my internal screaming and better intentions, I hoped I wouldnโ€™t have to wait long to find out. Fuck.

โ€œYou have no idea what youโ€™re doing to me, Lucy.โ€ His voice was low and had a certain edge to it.

I felt that same churning feeling deep inside me. Shit. What? A heat built between my legs as a warmth spread through me, enveloping every part of my body. I was still speechless in his presence, my breath catching in my throat.

โ€œI havenโ€™t been able to sleep since we last spoke...โ€ he bit his lower lip, sighing deeply. โ€œI donโ€™t know whatโ€™s happening to me, L. I have tried for months now to keep myself away from you... I donโ€™t know how much longer I can take it.โ€ He took a small step backward. โ€œI donโ€™t know how much longer I can be... good... with you. And I can promise you... Iโ€™m not good for you.โ€

His words knocked the wind out of my already breathless lungs. No man had ever made me feel this way simply by speaking to me. Not until him. His gaze absolutely burned into me as my thoughts swirled. I am literal jello right now. Holy. Fuck.

โ€œWhen weโ€™re together, I just...โ€ he took a sharp breath inward, โ€œmy thoughts lately have been... very, very bad.โ€ His words came out strained and low.

I felt myself acquire a sense of courage for about a half-second, and managed to whisper out quietly, โ€œWell, what are you waiting for, then?โ€ Did I really just say that?! The words were out of my mouth before the thought filtered through my mind.

His gaze darkened immediately, his lips dangerously close to mine. I could feel the heat of his breath, and I didnโ€™t want to wait any longer to taste him.

โ€œFuck, Lucy.โ€ He was breathing deeply, slowly, trying to control himself. โ€œWe really shouldnโ€™t be doing this here...โ€ he looked almost concerned. โ€œI donโ€™t know what I was thinking...โ€ he raked his hand through his disheveled hair. His gaze met mine once again, and something in his eyes had changed.

Youโ€™re not the only one worried you canโ€™t behave. He inched closer to me, closing the small distance between us, and my insides imploded at the feel of his chest pressed against mine. I stroked his forearm with the tips of my fingers softly, and I felt him shiver at my touch.

โ€œTell me you donโ€™t want this, and Iโ€™ll stop.โ€ His lips were on my neck, his breath warm on my skin and breathing slightly labored. He continued tracing soft lines down my sides with his fingertips. I felt his lower body stiffen as it was intertwined with mine. โ€œPlease, just tell me Iโ€™m crazy. Do you want me to stop?โ€ He asked quietly, his voice barely above a whisper.

My gaze finally, bravely met his own, summoning some internal courage I didnโ€™t know I had. โ€œNo,โ€ I whispered, not even quite sure what I was saying. My feelings couldnโ€™t be denied any longer. I wanted him. And if his racing heartbeat was any indication, he wanted me, too.

I guess that was all he needed to hearโ€”I had granted him permission. We both seemed to forget our surroundings instantly as he weaved his hand into my hair, tugging it softly, wrapping his free arm around my waist, pressing his lower torso into my hips. In an instant his soft, full lips met mine, parting them gently with his tongue, exploring my mouth feverishly and with a longing hunger.

I moaned inwardly at the sensation, letting out a soft groan, feeling my insides clench and reaching up to touch his cheek. As I did, he grabbed my wrist and pinned it to the shelf behind us. Why is this so fucking hot?

โ€œThis is wrong,โ€ he said suddenly, pulling back but still not breaking contact with my body physicallyโ€”the magnetic pull between us too strong. โ€œWe should stop.โ€ He ran his hands down my spine and stopped at the deep curve of my back, tracing small circles with his fingers, making my skin tingle, setting every nerve ending on fire.

Your words are telling me one thing, but your actions speak otherwise, sir. I was panting. This is out of control. โ€œYeah, yeah, I guess we should.โ€ I tucked my shirt back in, realizing I must look like a complete mess, straightening out my skirt and smoothing over my hair with my hands quickly.

He looked me up and down once more, and it must have been just short of two seconds before he took my hand in his, making way for the staff workroom hurriedly. โ€œCome with me,โ€ he looked back at me, shaking his head softly, an unfamiliar look in his eyes. โ€œPlease.โ€

He didnโ€™t need to ask me twice. I followed his instructions, keeping up with his hurried pace. He closed the door behind us, and locked the door with a soft click.

He turned to face me, and the man I thought I knew was gone. A stormy darkness had taken over his eyes. His voice low and almost menacing, he spoke. โ€œAre you absolutely sure you want to do this, Lucy?โ€

Hearing him say my name aloud made me feel faint. My insides were doing somersaults. Fuck. Do I want this? But with one more look at him, I knew my answer. The desires I had been feelingโ€”and denyingโ€”for months were all bubbling to the surface. Right here, right now.

Barely audibly, I spoke. โ€œYes.โ€
