Gentleman's Gift

Match Fourteen: Gentleman's Gift:

-Fourteen Years Ago-

"I look forward to starting business with you, Wang," Khai said in his office on the day of his wife's funeral. Yao bowed his head at him.

"I am my honored myself," the other man said. His new business partner gave him a beaming smile.

"As a token of my good faith," he said, "I will give you my daughter as a present."

"What?" Yao asked with big eyes of surprise, "But she's only four years old!" The other man roared with laughter.

"No, no," he said, "Not now, but when she was old enough." Yao kind of loved hoping that all of it was a joke.

-Present Day-

Yao lifted Ju's head. His young business partner looked at him with big desperate eyes. It would be taking advantage of her, but she wants relief. Yao pressed his lips together.

"Are you sure about this?" he asked. Ju shook her eyes as she nodded.

"Yes," she said in hoarse voice. Yao looked down at her waiting lips. The invitation felt off, but yet it reminded him of what her father said to him all of those years ago. The older partner leaned and planted a little kiss on her lips. Little sparks leapt up in the girl's heart. Her arms ached to embrace him. The feeling went cold when pulled away from her. Ju opened her eyes to see Yao staring at her.

"Talk to me," he told her, "How do you really feel about me?" Ju struggled to find the appropriate answer to his question. All of the lies that she could've thought of didn't sound right in her head. She looked down at her hands.

"What will become of me if I tell you?" she asked.

"I'm sorry?" Yao asked her. She lifted her head and looked him straight in the eye.

"I think that I am attracted to you in a way that I shouldn't be," Ju admitted with unease in her voice. The older partner raised an eyebrow at her statement.

"Why do you believe such?" he asked.

"Please don't," she softly pleaded as if to herself.

"No, tell me," Yao nudged her, "Why do you think that you shouldn't be attract to me?" Ju felt her stomach turn.

"You're so much older than me," she admitted, "Plus, we work together. I'm still in high school and I don't have time for an intimate relationship." The girl tried in vain to stop herself, but her bleeding heart already took control over her thoughts and desires. She clenched her fist to her chest.

"It's such a mess," Ju said quietly, "It was just one stupid kiss. How could it spiral into this storm in my head?" Yao lifted her head for her to face him again.

"You mean this kiss?" he asked her. The man leaned in and gave his younger business partner another peck on the lips. Ju's own logic shut down from the rushing heat in her chest and between her legs. Yao pulled away and noticed the flushed cheeks Ju sported as she tried in vain to keep it together.

"Yes," she said in one breath. Ju leaned forward and connected her lips to his again. This time, Yao grabbed onto her smaller frame.

"Please take me," the girl said in a pant.

"I will, but only if you really want me to," Yao whispered in her ear before nibbling on it. She planted a ten-second kiss on his throat. He leapt up from his chair and pinned her against the wall. Ju grabbed onto his white shirt and unbuttoned the small buttons with quickness in her hands. The man closed his eyes and softly whimpered as her mouth trailed down his throat to his chest. In the back of her mind, Ju heard herself screaming to stop this.

Stop. Please stop. Once you cross over, you can't go back.

The voice was silence when Yao rolled off her black and pink t-shirt. He grabbed her by the thighs and took her down the hall.

"Show me to your room," he whispered in her ear.

"Down the hall to your right," Ju said back before kissing him on the neck again.

"Yes ma'am," he said. Yao took his potential new lover down the hall nibbling on her collarbone. She reached and opened the door to her room. Her older partner glanced up to the light green walls as he carried the girl into the room. He dumped her onto the bed before sliding off his shirt. Ju tried to catch her breath as she looked him in the eye.

"Wait," she said, "Do you have protection?" Yao sank down over her body.

"Yes," he told her, "I didn't forget this time. Hang on." The man reached into his right jeans pocket and pulled out a freshly wrapped condom. He noticed her lips curved into a smile.

"What?" he asked innocently. Ju did her best to hold back a giggle.

"Do you always carry those around in your pocket?" she asked. Yao gave her a small shrug.

"Just today," he replied.

"Just today?" she asked. Yao planted a kiss on her throat.

"Something told me that this would come into use today," he said in her ear. He moved his lips to her own and took her back into his arms. She parted her lips just enough for his tongue to slide inside. In the next few hours, something would die even further within her, but pleasure in the spectacular now blocked out any notice of this as Yao trembled his mouth down to her perky breasts behind her pink cotton bra.
