Chapter 15 - Resisting Temptation
“I can’t believe we just did that… twice!” Scarlett commented from her position in the bed as she lay with her head resting comfortably on Adam’s firm chest, her long messy blonde hair splayed out across his sculpted pecs.
“I can’t believe we’re not doing it again right now!” Adam joked, grinning.
She pursed her lips, giving him a good hard jab with her elbow as he took it bravely and chuckled deeply at her reaction to his joke.
“You’re insatiable.” she spat, sitting up and reaching for a bottle of water from the bedside table.
Adam watched as she unscrewed it and began guzzling the clear liquid down her throat, one gulp at a time. Her long dark blonde hair was all over the place and her olive skin glistened with beads of sweat as she finished drinking and screwed the lid back on.
“Thirsty work.” she commented with a cheeky wink.
“Mmmm… that it is.” he replied with a warm smile.
Placing the bottle back on the bedside table, Scarlett hopped down off of the bed and began to stride slowly across towards the bathroom. She was clearly naked but didn't appear to be shy about it.
“And where do you think you’re going?” he called out, sitting up on his elbows.
“Nature calls I’m afraid.” she replied with a sensuous smoulder over her shoulder. “Don’t worry, I won’t be long.”
Watching as she disappeared through the open doorway of the bathroom and closed the door behind her, Adam let out a large sigh as he looked across at the digital clock sitting on the bedside table and the displayed time it showed; 1:46am.
“So much for getting some rest…” he chuckled to himself, pulling his legs up to sit with his back against the head of the bed before adding, “…not that I’m complaining.”
Reaching for his mobile phone which sat on the opposite bedside table, he held the button on the side of his phone in for ten seconds, turning it back on and waiting for it to load. It had certainly been nice getting a chance to relax and enjoy himself without the constant pressures and stresses of the family business and having his phone pinging every five seconds. Having his phone off alone was a massive load off of his shoulders as he watched the phone suddenly come to life, loading up his home screen.
But then the notifications began sounding, one after the other, after the other…
‘PING, PING, PING, PING… PING.’
His chocolate brown eyes widened as it finally caught up, showing a frightening 15 missed calls and 24 notifications! Apparently he hadn’t managed to escape his life after all, and it had only been less than a day. Still holding the phone in his hand he ran his hand anxiously through his dark hair.
At that exact moment the bathroom door opened with a squeak and Scarlett stepped out, instantly stealing his attention and causing him to smile warmly as his eyes met hers. She returned his smile as she stalked towards him, purposely swaying her hips from side to side in an intentionally seductive manner.
“Don’t give me that look…” Adam warned from where he sat on the bed, watching as she crawled across the mattress towards him, “Seriously, I won’t be able to stop myself Scarlett.”
Her deviant expression remained as she maintained eye focus with him, all the way up until she crawled over his body to meet him face to face. As her hazel eyes stared deeply into his she bit her bottom lip and waved her hips from side to side, teasing him and testing his resolve.
As his chocolate brown eyes moved over her incredible body, evidence of his desire for her showed as his large cock began to twitch, coming to life beneath the white cotton sheet lying across his waist.
“Scarlett…” his voice was laced with warning as he continued to hold her smouldering gaze.
Glancing down with her eyes alone, she grinned triumphantly at the sight of the tented sheet below her and Adam let out an animalistic groan, closing his eyes.
“Don’t make me subdue you.” Adam suddenly spoke, opening his eyes and meeting her gaze again, his expression now serious.
She narrowed her eyes at him, appearing to find his challenge somewhat enticing. She always liked a good challenge!
“I’d like to see you try.” she spoke with an equally serious expression.
“Don’t tempt me…” his voice was darker now, as were his eyes.
Calling his bluff, Scarlett grinned as she began to reach slowly down towards his erection. Just before she reached it her wrist was suddenly grasped mid-way by Adam’s opposite hand and he glared back at her for the obvious defiance. Struggling to pull her hand free from his vice-like grip, she grunted as he stared directly into her eyes.
“You’re quick, I’ll give you that.” she complimented him snidely.
“I should be, I’ve trained in mixed martial arts since I was five.” he pointed out casually, his grip remaining firm with his fingers wrapped around her slender wrist.
Her eyes widened with surprise upon hearing this, “Interesting… but I should warn you, I’m not one to give up without one hell of a fight.”
He grinned equally defiantly back at her.
“Neither am I.”
In the fraction of a second Scarlett had surprised him as she twisted her right wrist inward and used her free hand to force him to release his grip on her wrist with a slight twist. As she lifted her wrist back up with a satisfied expression of victory painting her face, her left brow rose as if to taunt him.
“You were saying?” she taunted with a condescending tone.
Adam’s eyes remained narrow as he remained seated on the bed beneath her, deciding what his next move would be to take her down. Noticing that she was kneeling on the same sheet lying over his waist and legs, he had an idea and grinned.
Everything happened so quickly, she barely even had time to react before he made his move. Reaching forward with both hands Adam firmly grasped at the cotton sheet and pulled it with one hard tug, causing her to lose her balance and fall onto her back, staring up from the mattress.
Before she had the chance to lift herself back up he was lying over top of her, his hands both moved to grab at both of her wrists this time and pulled her arms high above her head, holding them down against the mattress with his added weight.
“How’s this position for you?” he asked, tilting his head to the side with a small smile.
“I prefer being on top.” she replied, struggling to pull her arms out from his vice-like grip, but to no avail.
“Oh… I’ll bet you do.” his voice was deep, “Who taught you to get out of a wrist lock like that anyway?”
Her smoulder faded suddenly as she broke eye contact with him, glancing off to the side and seeming hesitant for some unknown reason. Adam could sense her unease and immediately knew that this was a raw subject for her. As his expression began to show his concern she replied.
“It was my ex…” she whispered, still unable to meet his gaze, “He um… he taught me some basic self-defence skills, and how to shoot.”
His brows both rose with interest.
“You… know how to shoot?” he asked disbelievingly, “…like an actual gun?”
She frowned as she replied with a snarky tone to her voice.
“Is that so hard to believe?”
“A little.” he admitted.
Scarlett narrowed her eyes at him as he lowered his mouth down to hover just above hers. She could barely feel the prickly stubble above and below his lips grazing her soft skin as his warm breath caressed her open mouth.
She was ready for him, ready for another round of passionate intimacy with this incredible man she barely knew; this man who made her feel more alive than anyone ever had in her entire lifetime. And strangely enough, even though they had only known each other for a matter of hours, she felt somehow connected to him; though she could not even begin to describe how. It was merely a feeling, deep down inside. One she couldn’t escape or ignore.
“Kiss me Adam...” she whispered softly to him, “I want you to make love to me... Make love to me until the sun comes up.”
Adam blinked down at her, seemingly amazed by how lucky he was to be with such an exciting woman. With a wide toothy grin, he replied with three simple words...
“If you insist.”
