Chapter 44

“Marcus!” his mother’s voice yelled through the door. Both froze and looked at the doorknob. Had they locked the door?

“Coming Mom,” he replied, looking down at a wide-eyed Eloise.

“Shower first,” was all she said. Eloise laughed and dropped her head back onto the pillows.

“So much for being discreet?” she joked, he threw back his head and laughed.

“I suppose, but I wasn’t trying to be quiet, were you?” he asked, leaning down the plant a kiss on her lips.

“No, I forgot we needed to go caroling,” she admitted with a sly smile.

“God, I love you!” He nipped her bottom lip, she arched up, pressing her breasts against his chest rubbing back and forth.

“Eloise, if you keep that up, we won’t go caroling at all,” he warned, she gave him an innocent look, and he groaned.

“Maybe that was the plan,” she replied, her nails scraping down his chest to where his now hard cock sat between their bodies.

“My family won’t let us hear the end of it,” he tried to argue, but her hand wrapped around his cock and tugged. Laying his head in the crook of her neck, he inhaled deeply.

“Marcus!” His father’s voice thundered through the door.

“Dad?” he called back.

“We are going without you, be ready for the party.” His dad’s receding footsteps told him they were off the hook for caroling.

“I like your dad,” Eloise quipped and caught his mouth in a lust-driven kiss. Her tiny hand pumped his cock, twisting to add a bit of friction.

“Right now, I like you more,” he responded, leaning down to suck on a nipple, trying not to let her bring him to an embarrassing quick finish. They made love for a second time.

Placing gentle kisses across her shoulder, he stroked her arm snuggled around his mate.

“I love you,” he whispered in her ear.

“I love you more,” she replied, looking over her shoulder at him. He captured her lips in a sweet kiss.

“We should shower,” she remarked, trying to get up from the bed.

“Not yet, we have time before everyone comes back. I want to enjoy the sensation of your skin against mine.”

“But I’m all sweaty,” she complained.

“I don’t mind, just means our lovemaking was perfect,” he replied, nipping at her shoulder. She jerked forward and glared at him.

“No more hickeys, you’ve left at least ten on me since we got here yesterday.”

“I leave them where no one can see them,” he replied, with a sheepish grin on his face.

“No more,” she begged, he nodded and pinched her bottom just because he could.


“Your ass is amazing, the perfect size for me to grab.” To prove his point, he grabbed a handful of her ass and placed a kiss on her shoulder.

“You are too much!” She let out a throaty laugh and he smiled. A feeling of contentment washed through him, this was what he wanted for the rest of his life. He needed to get out to the store and buy her that ring before they left for home. He wanted her engaged to him when they went back home to White Valley. He would never let her go back to that rat hole she called an apartment. She belonged in his home, where she could spread out her grading and not worry about someone breaking into her home. Without realizing it his arms loosened and she managed to escape with a laugh making a mad dash to the bathroom.

“I’m free!” she yelled with a giggle.

“Not for long!” he called back, getting out of bed he raced after her. She was bent over turning on the hot water for the shower when he entered. Her ass in the air he wanted so badly to smack it, so he snuck up on her and did just that. She jumped up and turned around to look at him, desire pooling in her eyes. His cock hardened instantly and pinned her to the shower wall. He kissed her long and hard. The water rained down on them, cold at first but soon warm. Kneeling he made love to her one more time in the shower.
