Chapter 18. I'm not ready!

I looked at him dumbfounded..... I belong to him now?

"How can I belong to you when you belong to someone else?" I asked him...

He tensed but didnt say anything.

"Have you forgotten that you're married, so you're not allowed to make a claim on me" I said stiffly

His eyes got hard and was without any sign of emotion.

"That'll soon be fixed... all in due time" he said sharply....and I meant what I said.... you belong to me and only me"

He gripped my face tighter and stared at me apparently waiting for a response.

"Okay" I muttered through my teeth

"Good girl" he replied and kisssd my forehead.

"Work work work" by Rihanna began to sing out from my phone, that could only mean one thing... my boss was calling.

"Shit!.... I forgot to call in" I said as I got up and grabbed my phone.

"Hello, Good morning Mr. Martin" I answered sharply.

"Where the heck are you..... it's not like you to be late ...is everthing alright?" He asked.

"Ummmm, unfortunately no, I had one of the worst weekends of my life, Kimone was in an accident" I told him.

"What??! I'm sorry to hear that, is she alright?" He asked again.

"No, she's in a coma" I said sadly.

He sighed.....

"So I'm guessing you need some time off then?"

The words sounded like a sweet melody to my ears.

"I would appreciate that very much" I told him. " sorry I didn't call in, I was a bit caught up" and rolled my eyes at Alando.

"No problem, you deserve some time off anyway, Tricia will manage things until you're back next week... I'll stop by the hospital tomorrow to check on Kimone."

"Okay.... thank you " I replied and hung up.

Andre was a great boss, he was the founder's grandson who took over the business after his grandfather retired. He took a liking to Kimone when she started picking me up from work on Friday evenings to go to our weekly friday nights out, Andre would join us a few times along with a couple of the other workers. We loved going out with him, for a short and stubby person, boy could he move, he knew the latest dances and everything.

"How long will you be off work ?" He asked snapping me out of my thoughts.

"Ummmm, a week... why?" I asked.

"You can spend the week at my house" he said as he pour another cup of coffee.

"Huh?" I said and shaked my head to be sure I was hearing right

"You heard me" he said as he handed me the cup.

"Hell no!.... I will do no such thing" I told him.

"Why..... what are you afraid of?" He asked....

"I know nothing about you other than the bit of info you gave me back at the hospital, I just met you three days ago...."

"Hmmm, you met me three days but yet I've made you cum 4 times and here we are both naked in an hotel room after spending the night together, you see how stupid you're sounding right now?" He asked staring right at me.

He was right, I didnt jus sound stupid, I was stupid. After being single for so long I just gave it all up to him without a second thought. I didn't feel the urge to drink anymore coffee, I was so ashamed of myself

He came and sat behind me and wrapped his feet around mine, I could feel his heart beating against my back.

"When I was fourteen years old, my mom and I went to the bookstore, I immediately saw this book and I knew I wanted it, the cover was simple and everything, I went and took it from the shelf " he paused as if he was trying to remember something....... "my mom asked me why did i wanted her to buy it, I told her the book was calling to me.... she laughed and said I was silly and we left the store..... a couple days later, my dad picked me up from school and on our way home he stopped by the same bookstore,let me add that my parents were avid book lovers.... I told him I need the book and I pointed to it, without question he bought it and I took it home. I read the entire thing in two days.... the book was called White Coat: Becoming a Doctor at Harvard Medical School by Ellen Rothman.…the author offered a vivid account of her four years at one of the best medical schools in the country, and opened the infamously closed door between patient and doctor. Touching on today’s most important medical issues — such as HMOs, AIDS, and assisted suicide...it changed my life, after reading I knew I wanted to be doctor...I even went on to receiving a scholarship to the same Harvard Medical School......" he told me....

I sighed......

"And you've just told me this becauusseeee?" I asked as I took another sip of my coffee

He placed his lips on my ear....

"Because the feeling I got when I saw that book, is the same feeling I got when I saw you at the hospital".... he responded...

I swallowed hard almost choking myself...

"Seriously?" I asked in a surprised voice....

"Yep" he said with seriousness in his eyes "and just as had I put out all the stops to achieve everything I needed to becoming a doctor, it'll be the same with you.... I'll be putting out all the stops."

I rested the back of my head on his shoulder and let out a sigh, my stomach was in knots, this beautiful work of art, the great sex God desired me and was gonna put out all the stops for me. Not only was I ecstatic but I was also scared out of my wits. Scared of getting hurt again, after everything that I've been through with Eyan, the hurt, the pain and sleepless nights, I couldnt put myself in a position to go through those things again and that's exactly where this was headed, he was a married man for heaven's sake.

I fiddled with the cup in my hand and wondered how was i gonna say what I wanted to without hurting his feelings, I opened my mouth but the words couldnt come out.

"Say what's on your mind" he told me...

I sat up and straightened my frame and in one breath I blurted out...

"I don't think I'm ready for a relationship"...
