Chapter 30

I’d spend ten thousand hours and ten thousand more

Oh, if that’s what it takes to learn that sweet heart of yours

And I might never get there, but I’m gonna try

If it’s ten thousand hours or the rest of my life

I’m gonna love you (ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

“Anderson?” She couldn’t understand why he was in her apartment. How he got in, she didn’t know either. Roxie was the only one who had a spare key.

“Before you throw me out, let me tell you what I failed to last time we were together,” he began setting down the boombox. Dan and Shay continued in the background, but her attention remained focused on the man in front of her. He took her purse hanging it up and then led her into her kitchen. An amazing smell wafted out of her kitchen to tickle her nose. Her small two-person table was set up for a candlelit dinner. A white tablecloth covered the table, two china plates, which she recognized as Roxie’s wedding china sat on the table along with silverware and wine glasses. he filled the glasses with water, and she wondered if Roxie told him about the baby.

“Evvy, I am so sorry about how I asked for you to take me back. I know I royally screwed up and want you to know that I understand what I did. Yes, my tiger says you are my mate, but it isn’t just him who wants you. You are my other half, you complete me. I’ve never found another woman who challenged me to be a better man. You never let me get away with my fears. You called me on my bullshit and pointed out what I needed to do. I love you, Evvy. You are my everything and I will spend the rest of my life proving to you that you are my mate and my love. Please don’t give up on us. I love you.” Evelyn stared at her mate, he finally came to his senses and here she was about to upset everything.

“What about children?” she asked worried he hadn’t worked on that problem.

“I spoke to my dad. I feel like such an idiot. My mother died from a brain tumor, not giving birth to me. I know my fear isn’t going to miraculously disappear but it is something I am willing to work through. I want children with you, Evvy,” he replied, she could see the truth in his words and sighed.

“Anderson this past year with you has been full of ups and downs. I know you are my mate and I want to be with you. I have one condition to taking you back,” she stated and watched the excitement dim to concern in his eyes.

“You prove to me you aren’t going to run away again. I won’t let you mate me until I know you are going to stick around. Your track record hasn’t been good and I need to protect my heart. I love you, but love isn’t enough. We need to continue to work together on us,” she explained and he nodded immediately.

“I promise you can trust me,” he answered and she gave him a bright smile.

“Then kiss me and feed me. That smells amazing. What did you make?” She took a sniff of the air and her mouth watered. It was the first food she’d smelled that hadn’t upset her stomach.

“I made chicken parmesan. I practiced all week to make it perfect,” he explained and wrapped his arms around her. She lifted her head, and he placed his lips against hers. Her body instantly lit on fire, she wanted Anderson. Leaning into the kiss she opened her mouth and his tongue dove in. She tangled her tongue with his fighting for dominance over the kiss. Her hands wrapped around his waist, and she pressed her sensitive breasts against his rock hard body. Tingles spread through her body, how she had missed him.

“Dinner has twenty minutes, let me make love to you. I want to worship your body,” Anderson begged, to answer him she moved her hands to his button-up shirt starting to undo the buttons.

“I’ve missed your body pressed against mine,” she admitted, letting him walk her back toward her room. Her skin was on fire where his hands touched her, she craved him.

“I’ve missed your curves and smooth skin. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into your flesh,” he moaned and with nimble fingers removed her shirt and bra. His hands cupped her ample breasts and he thumbed her perky nipples. She closed her eyes and moaned as lust shot through her body and made her slick between her folds.

“I want you inside of me now!” she demanded and pushed his shirt off his shoulders and yanked his undershirt over his head. She could see his tiger pushing at his skin when his eyes changed shape and glowed.

“Not until I get my mouth on your pussy,” he growled and yanked her jeans popping the buttons and pushing them along with her underwear to the floor. Evelyn fell back onto her bed and leaned onto her elbows watching Anderson divest himself of the last of his dress clothes. She loved seeing him dressed up for her, but she preferred him naked and staring at her as if she were his last meal.

“I can smell how much you want me,” he moaned and to prove his point he took a deep sniff. Evelyn flushed from desire and licked her lips as Anderson crawled up her body. His lips kissed a path up one leg and down the other passing over the very heat of her desire. She whimpered and lifted her hips giving him a not so subtle hint she wanted his mouth on her. He chuckled and finally settled his mouth on her pussy, pushing his tongue between her lips. She gasped and almost came on his tongue. His tongue lapped and swirled around her clit, his long fingers slipped into her very core and she screamed. Her body was wound tight like a screw begging for release. His tongue never let up his assault on her clit while his fingers pumped in and out curling to press on her pleasure spot. Digging her heels into his shoulders Evelyn came undone, her breathing hitched and her vision went black as an orgasm harder than any she’d ever experienced crashed over her body.

She dropped back onto her pillows and lay there exhausted from the power of her orgasm. Anderson gave her gentle kisses up her body until his mouth found one incredibly sensitive nipple. He sucked it into his mouth, her hand finding her neglected breasts and twisting the nipple between thumb and forefinger. Evelyn’s eyes popped open and she watched him pleasure her breasts. Not wanting him to feel neglected she reached for her hard cock. Anderson jerked his hips away from her and looked up.

“Tonight is all about you, my love. I want you to know the pleasure I plan to give you every night for the rest of our lives,” he murmured against her breasts. She felt herself gush anew between her legs and an almost painful need settled in her womb.

“Anderson,” she moaned and he positioned himself between her legs. Lifting her legs up, he placed them on his shoulders and pushed into her ready and waiting pussy. Her body stretched to accommodate his large size, it didn’t take long before her body adjusted. She wriggled her hips urging him to move. He did as she begged and began to slide in and out of her slick pussy. Unhappy with his slow speed, Evelyn lifted her hips to meet each of his thrusts. Catching his eye she told him,

“Don’t be so gentle.” He bent down and captured her lips in a blazing kiss as he increased his speed. Soon Evelyn could only hold on as Anderson pounded in and out of her body. This is what her body needed, she could feel all her stress and tension melting as Anderson made love to her.

“I’m so close,” she moaned feeling her next orgasm building. He bent his head nipping at the place where her neck and shoulder met, speeding up his thrusts. He was moving faster than any of her vibrators could ever hope to achieve and with two more thrusts, he sent her over the precipice of her orgasm. With one more thrust Anderson followed her over the edge shouting out as he pumped scalding hot seed deep within her. Evelyn lay on the bed breathing heavily, Anderson wrapped around her body.

“Thank you for loving me,” he whispered into her hair and she snuggled close letting all the stress from the past few weeks melt away. This was where she belonged, and Anderson needed to know she was going to give him a baby.

“Anderson I have something to tell you,” she said and he hmm’d letting her know he was listening.

“You know how you said you spoke with your dad about your mother’s death?” she began looking up at him.

“Yes,” he replied and opened his eyes to look at her.

“Remember the night I told you to leave?” she asked, and he nodded.

“We didn’t use protection, and I thought my birth control would be enough,” she said, and he sat up careful to bring her up with him.

“I’m pregnant Anderson and the baby is yours. I never slept with Preston, it never felt right to move past just casual dating with him,” she announced and watched as all the color drained from his face. Here we go, he is going to run again.

Finally! Let me know your thoughts!
