Chapter 54 They're Not Just Shoes
In the mansion, Elizabeth, the twins, and Taekyung were in the dining room about to have dinner. Elizabeth looked at the empty seats at the table and said, “where is everyone?”
“I’m not sure about Charles and Caroline, but Mark said he would go out with his friends.” Elizabeth let out a sigh. “That boy out partying again. After dinner, could you go get him before he gets in trouble?” Taekyung nodded. Mia looked at Elizabeth and said, “abuela, where’s mommy?” Elizabeth responded, “don’t worry, mi cielo, she is working. She should be here soon.”
When Caroline and Charles were on their way to the mansion, Charles commented, “you know, I had plans right after work, but instead, I had to go out looking for you.” Caroline responded, “I also had plans, but instead I was kidnapped by a jackass. Newsflash, we can’t always get what we want.” Charles chuckled. “Are you in a bad mood?”
“A little. I have things to do and that asshole made me waste my entire afternoon.”
“Come on, Caroline. Don’t be in such a bad mood, you made it out in one piece. Actually, no, let me rephrase that: at least your kidnapper was left in on piece.”
“What’s that supposed to mean?” Charles looked at her with a faint smirk and answered, “nothing.” Charles shifted back his gaze to the deserted road. Caroline looked down at her bare feet and said, “they took my favorite stilettos.”
“Your what?” He asked with an expression of confusion on his face. “My heels. They are my favorite heels.”
“You were just kidnapped and you’re worried about some shoes?” Caroline countered, “they’re not just shoes! A snake had to die in order to make them.” Charles let out a sigh. “What am I going to do with you?”
“Nothing. You’re stuck with me forever, cousin.” Caroline looked out the desolated road and added, “why did you take so long?”
“I had to look around some area away from here. They threw your cellphone in the middle of the highway. That’s where the signal stopped.” Caroline chuckled. “So, they noticed.”
“And what about you? Why did you let yourself get kidnapped?”
“I was curious.”
“You let yourself get kidnapped out of curiosity?” Caroline nodded. “Yes, I wanted to know who wanted me kidnapped. I wanted to know what they wanted. Plus, I wanted to get rid of them but seeing how it was Mason who hired them, I wanted to keep him alive.”
“Why do you think he did it?”
“I’m not sure. He didn’t say much after I shot him. He was probably getting his revenge for what I did back in Atlanta.” Caroline remembered how Charles got cut when he interfered between Caroline and Mason. “How’s your hand? I notice you don’t have a bandage anymore.” Charles looked at his hand and responded, “It’s fine.”
“I’m sorry about that. I didn’t intend on hurting you.”
“It’s okay, cuz. I was the one who grabbed the dagger.” The endless road in front was still as deserted as it could be. “How long until we get home?” Caroline asked. Charles turned to look at her and replied, “four hours.”
“Yeah.” Caroline leaned back against the seat and closed her eyes. “I’m going to take a nap. Wake me up when we get there.” Charles glanced at the woman getting comfortable on the seat as she drifted off to sleep.
Back at the mansion, Taekyung looked at his cellphone to see the time. It was already late in the night. The twins had already gone to sleep, Caroline, Charles, and Mark were nowhere to be seen. He grabbed his car keys and walked out of the mansion. He got on his Bugatti and drove away. He called Mark’s cellphone and the call took a while to get through. “Mark, where are you?”
“What do you care?”
“Are you drunk?” Mark said nothing. Then after a long pause, he responded, “I’m not drunk.”
“Mark, I can barely hear you. Where are you?” Mark didn’t respond to his question and hung up the phone. Taekyung tried calling him again but Mark did not respond. He opened another application where he found Mark’s exact location. He found the club Mark was at and he began to speed on the highway, trying to get as fast as possible.
When he arrived at
the club, he went inside and looked around for Mark. When he finally found him toasting with his friends and taking the shot, he walked up to him and grabbed his hand. “We’re leaving.”
Mark’s friends look at Taekyung and one of them asked, “who are you?” Taekyung glared at Mark’s friend and responded, “that is none of your business.” He turned to look back at Mark and pulled his arm, making him stand up from the chair. “Let’s go.”
Mark pulled back his arm and exclaimed, “no! I’m not going anywhere with you!” Taekyung gripped his arm once again and repeated, “let’s go.” Mark again, pulled his arm back and replied, “I’m not going anywhere with you. I don’t like you.” Taekyung stepped closer to him, closing the gap between them. “We’re leaving,” he said in a commanding tone.
“Hey, he said he didn’t want to leave with you.” Taekyung glared at Mark’s friend. He then grabbed Mark’s wrist and dragged him out of the club. “Let go of me,” demanded Mark as Taekyung dragged him out of the club.
Taekyung opened the door to his supercar and forced Mark into the car. He then closed the door and walked to the driver’s seat. He got in the car and looked at Mark. “Put on your seatbelt.” Mark turned his head and looked out the window. Taekyung let out a sigh and leaned over. He got close to Mark, making blush even more. “What- what are you doing?”
Taekyung grabbed the seatbelt and buckled it. Mark cleared his throat when Taekyung sat back on his seat and commented, “you reek of alcohol.” Taekyung then put on his seatbelt and started the car. He began to drive back to the mansion when he glanced at the drunk Mark sitting next to him.
Taekyung remembered the last time he took home Mark drunk; he almost woke up the whole house. Taekyung then changed course and went to a hotel nearby. Taekyung stopped at a red light and looked at Mark once again. This time, he saw the drunk man sitting next to him about to fall asleep.
When the light turned green, Taekyung continued driving until he reached the hotel. He pulled up to the entrance of the hotel and got off the car. He walked to the passenger’s seat and helped Mark out of the car. At this time, all the shots and drinks Mark had tonight were already taking effect.
Taekyung placed Mark’s arm over his shoulder as they walked inside the hotel. Mark staggered on their way to the reception desk. Taekyung asked for a suite as he took his black card from his wallet. He handed the card to the receptionist, leaving her in awe. It was obvious it was her first time seeing such an exclusive card.
After getting the keycard to the suite, Taekyung took Mark to the elevator and he pressed the top button of the building. Because of the alcohol, Mark had been staggering on their way to the elevator. Mark wrapped his arms around Taekyung and said, “give me a piggyback ride.”
“What?” Mark leaned closer and repeated, “give me a piggyback ride.” Right then and there, the elevator arrived on the floor. “Let’s go.” Mark shook his head. “Come on, Mark.” Mark shook his head once again. Taekyung let out a sigh. “Come on, get on.” Mark smiled just like a little child with candy. He got on Taekyung’s broad back and Taekyung walked towards the suite.
When they entered the suite, Taekyung walked closer to the king-sized bed and threw Mark on the bed. Mark stood up and walked closer to Taekyung. He wrapped his arms around his neck and said, “why did you bring me here?”
“You’re drunk. Go to sleep.” Mark shook his head. “I’m not drunk.” Taekyung raised his eyebrow. “Go to sleep,” he commanded. “What if I don’t want to?” Mark leaned closer and closer to him. Taekyung stopped him and asked, “do you like me?”
Mark was taken aback by the sudden question. He blushed a bit then he looked to the side. “No, I don’t like you,” he answered. Taekyung placed his finger on the side of his chin, making him meet his intimidating gaze. He leaned closer and uttered, “are you sure?”
Mark looked at Taekyung’s lips, then he looked back up at his eyes. He leaned in and pressed a kiss against Taekyung’s lips. Taekyung grabbed his hips and brought him closer to him. Mark separated from the kiss, smirked, and said, “I don’t like you.”
“Are you sure about that?” Mark shook his head. “I like you. I’ve licked you since I first met you.” Mark began to laugh and then added, “I’m kidding. I don’t like you.”
Taekyung leaned closer to him, his lips brushing against Mark’s. “I don’t care,” he whispered. Taekyung pushed him down on the bed before getting on top of him. He gripped Mark’s wrists and pinned them above his head as he leaned down to kiss him.
After kissing his lips, Taekyung proceeded to kiss his neck. Mark let out a whimper the second Taekyung’s soft lips made contact with his skin. Taekyung smirked and continued to kiss his neck, in hopes of hearing more of his whimpers. Taekyung nibbled on his skin slightly, making a breathy moan escape his lips.
Taekyung slowly let go of Mark’s wrists. He trailed his hands down to Mark’s shirt. He lifted up his shirt and made Mark bite the hem of his shirt. Taekyung placed his hand on Mark’s bare chest and then his hand trailed down his slender body.
Mark trembled and let out soft whimpers as Taekyung’s touch sent shivers running down her spine. “So sensitive,” Taekyung commented. He pinched Mark’s nipple, making him flinch. “You like that?” Taekyung smirked and leaned down.
The tip of his hot tongue made contact with Mark’s nipple, making him let out a muffled moan through the shirt. Taekyung played with his tongue before taking his nipple between his teeth. He slightly pulled and the nub slipped between his teeth.
This time, Mark let go of his shirt and let out a moan. Taekyung smirked and looked up at him. “That- that feels weird.” Taekyung’s large hand trailed up from Mark’s abdomen to his chest. He pressed his fingers graced over Mark’s nipple as he said, “I’m assuming it feels good by how hard you’ve gotten.”
Mark was about to tell Taekyung to stop when his words were cut off by a moan when Taekyung swirled his skillful tongue while teasing his nipple as his hand pulled on his other nipple. Taekyung’s hand move further down his body until he reached the hem of his pants. Taekyung was about to unzip Mark’s pants when he gripped his wrist.
Taekyung stopped for a second and leaned in. He kissed Mark, distracting him with the passionate kiss. Taekyung managed to undo his pants successfully. He pulled Mark’s pants down as he made eye contact with him. He kissed him once again as his hand grazed over the growing tent underneath his boxer briefs.
Taekyung then graced his fingers over the hem of Mark’s boxers. Mark embarrassedly turned his head and covered his face. Taekyung moved his hands to the side and said, “don’t cover your face. I want to see your reactions.”
Taekyung leaned in, to kiss Mark as he wrapped his hand around his dick. Taekyung began to move his hand up and down, jerking him off. Mark separated from the kiss and let out a soft moan. Taekyung continued as he pressed his tongue against his nipple. He felt Mark’s cock begin to twitch and his began to throb inside his pants.
As Taekyung continued, Mark let out a moan as he released his hot seed, falling in his abdomen. Taekyung leaned in and kissed him once again. He got on top of him and separated from the kiss. He took off his shirt, revealing his perfectly muscular body. “We’re not done yet,” he said.
