Darren paid for our dinner and we both stood up he walked with me to the elevators. “I’m glad you were alone tonight Scarlet.” He said.
“Oh yeah, and why is that?” I asked him.
“Because when I first met you. I knew I had to make you mine, but you were with him and I was confused.” Darren said.
“He is not my blood brother. Besides things just happened and now it’s done.” Every time I talk about Lucas. Even though I made my choice to stay away. I always get a little pain in my heart. We walked to my hotel door and I turned to Darren.
“Goodnight Tesoro, (Sweetheart)” Darren said and he kissed my cheek. I wanted to grab him and pull him in my room, but I guessed it was best not to act like a slut and I said goodnight. I watched him walk away and I went into my room. I laid down on the bed and stared at the ceiling. That’s when I felt my phone go off. It was from my mother. I took a deep breath and answered it.
“Hello mom, how are you?”
“Hi baby, we’re fine. I was just checking in thought I’d give you a call.” She said.
“I’m doing good. I’m in Jacksonville tonight.”
“What are you doing there?” She asked me.
“I have a charity event tomorrow night."
“That’s good. So what will it take to get you home for Christmas this year?” She asked me.
“Mom you know how I feel."
“You can’t just never see me again Scarlet. Are you going to let Lucas keep you from being a part of this family forever? I’ll never see you again.” She said.
“Well mom you could always come here, but it’s not just about Lucas. I have a job mom, one that needs me. I can’t just take a week off.” I said.
“Lucas has moved on from this, why can’t you?"
“What do you mean, moved on?” I asked. I don’t know why the hell I asked that. I really didn’t want to know.
“He is seeing someone and has been for the last three months.” She said. I took a deep breath. I didn’t want to hear that. It made me mad.
“Well good for him because I’m going to the event tomorrow with Darren Marsh. William Marsh’s son.” And I regretted it the minute it left my lips. Shit, I said to myself. I really wasn’t trying to start anything. I don’t even understand why this upset me.
“How did that happen?” My mother asked me.
“His family is the one’s putting the event on and I ran into him here at the hotel. Mom, please don’t say anything. I don’t want to start problems.” I asked her.
“I won’t but I hope you know what you’re doing Scarlet?"
“Mom, I’m not dating him I’m just going to the event with him. I hardly think we’re going to be together.”
“Darren Marsh and his family are not good people Scarlet.” My mother said. Then I heard someone in the background.
“Darren Marsh? Who are you talking to?” The voice said.
“It’s Scarlet.” My mother said.
“Mom, who is that?” I asked. Then I heard a muffled noise.
“Scar?” It was Lucas. I didn’t say anything. “Scarlet, I hope you are not around Darren Marsh.” He said. I bit my lip. This was the first time I had heard his voice in five years.
“Goodbye,” I said and hung up the phone.
The next day went by slowly and I didn’t see Darren or his family the whole day. I walked around and did a little shopping and then spent some rest time in my room. The event started at six and it was already four, I started to get ready. I jumped into the shower and then blew dry my hair and filled it with curls. I left it down and pined up one side. My dress was black and had little diamonds all over it. The dress fit tightly against my body and went to the ground with a slit up the side. I’m not really tall so I got black high heels. I did my make up kind of dark with a smoky eye. By the time I was done. I walked out of the bathroom and there was a knock at my door. “One second please!” I hollered out. I grabbed my body spray and gave myself one last spray. I set the spray down and went to the door. I opened it and Darren was standing there in a black on black tux. He looked amazing. “Wow, you look good,” I said. He smiled at me.
“No babe, you look hot.” He said. I smiled and bit my lip. Oh yeah, he is so mine for the night. I said to myself. I closed the door behind me and I took his arm. We walked in silence to the elevators.
“Thank you for taking me tonight,” I said.
“Oh, no Scarlet this is my pleasure.” He said and he squeezed my arm a little. “Promise me you will save all your dances for me tonight?"
“I’m here with you, of course, all my dances are for you."
“Scarlet, you’re going to be the hottest woman in the place. Other men are going to ask you to dance.” He said.
“Not if I’m on your arm all night,” I said and smiled at him. He smiled as he sucked his teeth and looked at me. We walked into the ballroom of the hotel and the place looked amazing. I stayed on his arm as he walked over to his father and mother.
“Mom, dad. You remember Scarlet?” Darren said. They both turned and looked at me. William nodded his head at me and Blake took my hand.
“You look lovely tonight dear.” She said to me.
“Thank you, Mrs. Marsh, you look beautiful,” I said. She smiled softly at me. She was very kind. I really liked her.
“Come along kitten, you have an event to put on,” William said to his wife. We said goodbye and Darren walked us out onto the dance floor. His arm went around my waist and he pulled me into his arms.
“You smell amazing and feel even better.” He whispered in my ear. Fuck, this was going to be a good night. I said to myself. We danced most of the night and I sat at the table with Darren’s family and some people I could only assume were William’s men. There was no talk about crime or gang talk. It was a normal conversation and I enjoyed every minute of it. I was asked a lot of questions, but I expected that and I had no problem answering them. I sipped my wine as Darren and William got lost in conversation and I was watching everyone around the room dancing and having a good time. I had turned my phone off and left it in my room. I didn’t want to be disturbed this night.
Darren leaned over to my ear. “Do you want to go for a walk and get some fresh air?” He asked me and I nodded at him. We excused ourselves and walked away. Darren took my hand and we went out some double doors that took us out to the gardens. We walked a little way inside and Darren stopped us. I looked over at him. He looked over at me. “Scarlet, I’m going to kiss you and if you don’t want me to. Now is the time to say something.” He said to me. I kept my mouth shut. He placed his hands on the side of my face and pulled me to his lips. The kiss was soft and sweet and his lips felt good dancing with mine. I wrapped my arm around his neck and kissed him deeply back.
“Do you want to get out of here?”
“Where do you want to go?” He asked me.
“Your room,” I said. He looked at me and then took my hand and we went back inside the hotel. We went to the top of the hotel and we stood in front of a set of double doors. “This is your room?” I asked him. He smiled at me.
“This is where I live half of the year.” I smiled at him. He opened the doors and we walked inside. “Would you like a drink?” He asked me. I knew he was trying to make me feel comfortable.
“No, I just want you,” he looked at me and cocked his head. His arm went around my waist and he pulled me into him.
“You’re playing a dangerous game, Scarlet.” He whispered in my ear.
“Then let’s play,” I felt his lips go to my neck and I went right for the zipper of my dress. I pulled it down and the gown fell to my feet. I stood there in my bra and panties and stockings. He stepped back to take a look at me.
“Your perfect Scarlet.” He said as he came back close to me. His hands went down to my ass and I jumped into his arms and wrapped my legs around him. He carried me into a bedroom and slammed me against the wall. He held my hands above my head and was kissing me all over my chest and body. He took his other hand and pulled my bra down. His mouth found my nipple and he bit and licked me. I moaned out his name and it pushed him. He slid down me and my feet came to the ground. He pulled my panties down my legs and left the stockings on. His face went right to my core. My hands went into his hair as his tongue danced with my clit perfectly.
“I want you,” I said to him. He came back up to my face and I pushed him away from me. I walked to him and started to remove his jacket. He started to remove his tie and shirt. I went down to my knees and undid his pants and let them fall to the ground. I pulled his boxer briefs down. He sprang forward in front of me. He was very large and I licked my lips as I placed him into my mouth. His moans were driving me wild and the more I sucked on him the louder he was becoming, I loved it.
“If you don’t stop I will cum in your mouth.” I didn’t care it only pushed me more and I took him in my mouth deeper. His head fell back and his warm liquid went down the back of my throat. “I plan on making you mine.” He said as he lifted up and laid me down on the bed. He pushed one of my bent legs up the side of my body. His tongue licked my clit and he sucked hard. I was losing it and I came hard on his mouth. He stood up and went to the dresser in the room. He grabbed a condom and placed it over him. He then came back to me and pushed both my bent legs close to my face as he pushed himself inside of me. I moaned out at the fullness of him. He wrapped his arms around my neck and started to thrust in and out of me with force. He felt fantastic. All I wanted was more and more.
We laid next to each other. I was wrapped in his black silk sheets. He was running his fingers in my hair. “Stay with me tonight.” He said. I rolled over and looked at him.
“I have to head back home tomorrow."
“Okay, that’s tomorrow.” He said and I smiled at him. I stood up with the sheet still wrapped around me.
“You just want to do more things to my body,” I said standing on the side of the bed.
“You read my mind,” as he snatched me back down to the bed and his fingers went between my lips and his stuck two fingers deep inside of me. “Tell me again how you want to go?” He said in my ear.
“I don’t want to go,” I whispered out.
“I can’t hear you?"
“I don’t want to go, I want you inside me!” I hollered out as his fingers were being shoved in and out of me and it was driving me wild.
“You feel so fucking good, babe.” He said in my ear as he bit down on my ear lobe. I climbed back on top of him and slid myself down on his hard cock.
