Chapter Nineteen: Cafés & Bikinis

Ren grunted when Martina took hold of his hand and licked the tips of his fingers. How is this pretending to be Aurora? Though she had been right the other night. No one knows Aurora, and they don’t know what she’s really like. But this isn’t the correct behavior of the only daughter of Domenico Romano.

“You look like you’re a hundred miles away,” she said as she smiled at him.

“Just thinking,” he said as he saw some guys across the café staring at Martina.

“Thinking about us? Or your bimbo?” She whispered into his ear.

He glared at her, “she’s not a bimbo,” he whispered with a growl.

She giggled, then kissed his cheek. “Could have fooled me, with the way she was dressed. I take it that’s what turns you on.”

“You don’t know anything,” he said as he looked at her.

Her eyes flickered to behind him, then back at him, and she grinned, then pulled his head down to kiss him. Ren fought the urge to pull out of the kiss. It has to look to everyone around them that they’re falling in love.

Aurora stared inside the café. She knows that’s Ren sitting there, and that’s the woman who had come to his house last night. What kind of job does her father have them doing that they need to kiss like that in a café? She felt her heart fall to her feet as she watched them kiss.

How long will he let her kiss him for?

“Come on, what has you so…” Sofia stopped and looked into the café window, then grunted when she saw Ren and the fake Aurora kissing. “Shit.”

“And that took care of that,” Martina whispered against his mouth.

“What?” Ren asked, disgusted with himself for letting it go on for that long.

Martina grinned at the window as she waved to someone.

Ren turned his head, and his heart fell to his feet. It felt as though it was being stomped on, as he watched the emotions play over Aurora’s face, on the other side of the café’s large window.

“Shit,” he whispered.

“Looks like your girlfriend is going to kill you,” Martina whispered as she licked his neck, up to his ear.

Aurora turned from the window and continued down the sidewalk.

’Just remember that I love YOU. No one else.’

Ren’s words played over and over in her mind as she walked away from the café.

“Aurora,” Sofia whispered as she caught up to her sister.

“It’s fine. I’m okay,” Aurora said as she continued down the sidewalk.

“It’s not fine, and you’re not okay,” Sofia said as she pulled Aurora to a stop and turned her to face at her.

Aurora sighed, “I know he loves me,” she said as she forced a smile.

“Has he told you?”

Aurora smiled, “actually, we both have said it.”

Sofia sighed, “good, just remember that. Whatever you see out in public has nothing to do with you and Ren. Got it?”

Aurora nodded, “I know, trust him.”

Sofia nodded, “but don’t ever trust Martina,” she said as she took hold of her sister’s arm and walked down the sidewalk again.

“Who’s Martina?” Aurora asked.

“The bimbo Ren is stuck with, while we figure out how to get Trevisani out of the picture, for good.”


Ren left Martina’s side the moment they parked in the garage of the Romano mansion. He rushed into the house in search of the one person he wanted to see more than anyone.

“If you’re looking for Aurora, she’s up in her room,” Sofia said as she walked into the main hall and pointed up the stairs.

Ren took the stairs two at a time as he rushed to find Aurora and explain to her that Martina means nothing to him. She’s just a job.

He didn’t knock as he opened Aurora’s bedroom door and locked it behind him. He didn’t see her on her bed, so he headed to the bathroom. He pushed the door open and walked inside. When he turned to look in the tub, he stopped, and his mouth dropped open.

Aurora sat on the edge of the inside of the tub, with her legs spread open wide as she concentrated on shaving.

“What are you doing?” He asked when he finally found his voice.

She jumped, startled, and looked up at him. “Don’t scare me like that, Ren. You could have made me cut myself. And I’m shaving, what does it look like I’m doing?” She said as she went back to work.

“All of it?” He asked as he stared at her spread pussy and felt his dick instantly harden.

She shook her head. “Just the edges. I trimmed them a while ago, but you hadn’t seemed to notice, so I thought I’d shave it. It’s actually a lot cooler,” she said as she rinsed off the razer.

“I had noticed,” he said, his voice husky.

She looked up at him and smiled. “Good. But this I wanted to try anyway. I never felt comfortable in a bathing suit. Maybe now I will…”

“Bathing suit?” He asked with a hitch in his voice as he continued to watch her.

She nodded as she smiled up at him. “There’s a swimming pool here, and I have missed out on using it because of how I feel about this. I bought myself a new suit today and want to be comfortable in it.”

He blinked as he watched her go back to work. “Are you not angry with me?”

“What for?” She asked as she rinsed off the razer again.

“For what you saw today,” he said as he watched her.

She chuckled, “not angry. I was a bit shocked at first, but I got over it,” she said as she shrugged her shoulders.

“You…you got over it?”

She smiled up at him. “You love me, right?”

He nodded.

“Then I trust you,” she said as she looked back down at her pussy. “How does it look?”

He bent down so he could see it better and almost came in his pants. “Looks good.”

She giggled, “I love it when your voice sounds like that.”

“Like what?” He asked as he looked up at her.

“Like you want to eat me up,” she said, then bit her bottom lip.

He growled as he pulled her head to him and kissed her. She moaned as she kissed him back, then pulled away.

“I need to finish this. We’re going swimming soon,” Aurora said as she held up the razer.

He grinned then took the razer from her hand. “Let me help.”

She stared at him as he stripped out of his clothes and got to his knees, then bent over the tub so he could see her properly and finished shaving around her pussy. He then lathered her legs and gently shaved them for her.

Aurora groaned with pleasure as she sat there, totally exposed to Ren as he shaved her body. Who knew that having your boyfriend shave you could be so exciting? So, intoxicating.

“You look so good sitting like this,” he said as he slipped his finger inside her.

She whimpered as he slid his finger in and out of her. She wished he’d do more than… Her body jerked when his lips touched her clit.

“Yes,” she breathed.

Ren grinned as he took her clit into his mouth and sucked on it. She bucked against him as her orgasm had her coming up off the tub.

“I think you will be a bit late to the pool,” he said as he pulled his finger out, then pulled her to her feet and joined her in the tub.

“You think so?” She asked as he closed the curtain then turned on the shower.

“I know so,” he said as he claimed her mouth.

Aurora whimpered as he lifted her off her feet and wrapped them around his waist.

Yeah, she’s going to be late.


Sofia sat on a chair at the side of the pool as she waited for her sister. She’s a bit late. Sofia hoped that meant that everything went well with her and Ren. When she saw Ren walkout in his swim trunks, she smiled.

Aurora had at least told him about the pool time, they had all decided on today.

Jayme did a cannonball into the pool, Sofia was momentarily distracted as she looked at her brother. Jayme was splashing the girl he met a couple weeks ago at a club that allows nineteen and older inside.

“You look so hot.”

Sofia looked back at Ren and grunted when Martina pressed her body against him. When will the woman learn that she’s not getting anywhere with Ren? His heart has already been claimed by the real Gem of the Romano Dynasty.

“I see you finally ditched your whore,” Martina said as she placed her hands on his chest.

Sofia got to her feet, blinded by white rage. How dare the bimbo call her sister a whore.

“You are mistaken if you think you’re going to get your hands on me,” Ren said as he lightly pushed her away from him, “and never call her a whore, again.”


Sofia turned to Nicola.

“Stay calm,” he said as he pulled her back down onto the chair.

“How dare she…”

“She doesn’t know who Aurora is. Don’t forget, Aurora is just someone Ren is dating, for now.”

Sofia nodded as she let out a silent growl towards the bitch.

“Hey, Ren, want to race?” Jayme called from the pool.

Ren looked down at Jayme and smiled. “Sure,” he said as he passed Martina and joined the kid in the pool.

Sofia relaxed and watched Martina move to the other side of the pool and sit in a lawn chair. She was wearing a black bikini, and her small breasts were barely covered by the material.

“Look at that,” Nicola whispered.

Sofia looked to the door that led out to the pool and grinned. “Yesss,” she whispered.

Aurora walked out onto the pool deck in the bikini Sofia had talked her into buying. It was blue with pink and purple flowers, and as she had known, her body was perfect for it. Her curves were magnificent, as she knew they would be. And she looked freshly shaven, all over.

Sofia chuckled. Aurora’s ample breasts were barely staying inside the top, and if Sofia was a man, she was sure she would have a hard-on right now.

“Wow,” Jayme said from the pool as he looked up at his sister.

Aurora smiled at her brother. She felt silly, in this thing. But Sofia had been right, she looked good in it, and the blue made her eyes seem brighter.

“Shit, me,” Ren said as he stared up at her.

Aurora laughed. “Is that what you have to say?”

Ren shook his head as the others around him laughed.

“You look great,” he said with a grin.

Aurora chuckled as she looked at the other end of the pool and paused when she saw Martina sitting up on the chair, staring at her.

“Slut,” Martina mouthed to her.

Aurora took a deep breath. Maybe this was a bad idea.

“Don’t you dare,” Sofia said as she got to her feet and walked over to her sister. She had seen the bitch mouth ‘Slut’ to Aurora and had seen the look on her sister’s face. She was about to bolt back inside.

“Come on, Aurora,” Nicola whispered behind the princess, “ignore her, she’s just jealous. You look amazing.”

Aurora smiled as she looked from her sister to Nicola and back. “Thanks.”

“Ren thinks so too,” Sofia said as she nodded towards the man who was hiding against the side of the pool as he watched them.

“How can you tell? He hasn’t come out of the pool,” Aurora said as she looked at her sister.

Sofia laughed, “think about why he’s hiding there…”

Aurora’s eyes widened as she looked back at Ren, who was grinning up at her. She smiled back at him, then ran to the pool and jumped in.

Sofia laughed, “Operation Bitch Patrol is on,” she said as she looked up at Nicola. “We have got to keep that woman away from Ren and my sister.”

Nicola nodded, “agreed.”

“And she can never know who Aurora is,” Sofia hissed.
