Chapter 4


I sat at my desk with an hour left on the clock before I could go home. It’s been three days since Nolan came to my place. He is all I can think about. My strength was wearing me down. I said goodbye to everyone and headed home. I dropped my keys on my kitchen counter. That’s when I noticed a notecard on the floor. I walked over and picked it up.

Come see me tonight.

I walked over to the couch. I sat down and just stared at the card. Do I stay or do I go? I don’t know why you are questioning yourself. You know you’re going to go. It was dark out and the rain had just started to fall. I was still in my work clothes. I grabbed my keys and walked out to the elevator. I need to just get this over with and then move on. I’m a horrible person, I said to myself. The elevator dinged and opened to his double doors. I took one last deep breath and knocked. Within seconds he pulled the doors open. We stood there for a moment just looking at each other. That’s when I made my move.

I went into his arms and closed his door with my foot. “Juliet?” He said as I placed my lips on his. “Oh.” He said as he took over. I felt his hands come under my shirt skirt and he gripped my ass as I jumped into his arms and wrapped my legs around him. The heat between us made no sense to me. All I knew was it was there and I needed the release. I needed him and I couldn’t help myself. He sat me down on the kitchen counter and stayed between my legs. He looked at me. “Are you sure?” He asked me. I nodded at him and grabbed the collar of his shirt and pulled him back to my lips. He started to kiss down my chin and to my neck. I let out a soft moan and heard him growl. He started to unbutton my blouse. His strong hands pressed me back and I laid on the counter. I felt him continue to kiss my body as he removed my skirt and panties.

I now felt his lips on my inner thighs. God, I wanted him so much. He was teasing me with his tongue. “Nolan, stop teasing.” Just as the words left my mouth. He buried his face deep in my core. I almost came right off the counter. I felt his hand on my chest as he held me in place. I had nothing to grab onto as he gave me one of the hardest orgasms my body has ever felt.

“Fuck, your amazing.” He hissed out. It heard his belt being removed and I couldn’t wait to feel him inside of me. He grabbed my hips and pulled me closer to the edge of the counter. He smiled himself deep inside of me and then his lips were on my nipples and I was gripping onto his back. He thrust in and out of me. His piercing blue eyes met with mine. I was a mess as all I could do was moan out loudly. I don’t know how he did it, but the next thing I knew I was in his arms again. He carried me into his bedroom. I stood up and removed the rest of my clothes. I watched him walked over to his dresser and grab a condom.

He removed the rest of his clothes and I laid back on his bed. I watched him crawl onto the bed and he grabbed my legs, rested them on the shoulders, and slammed back inside of me. “You feel so fucking good Juliet. I knew you would.” I gripped the sheets around me as my eyes went into the back of my head. Any rationality I had left the building the minute my lips went to his. I was going against everything I believed in, and I was in heaven. “You belong to me Juliet and I don’t want anyone else touching you. Do you understand?”

“Yes Nolan, I’m yours,” I yelled out. This caused him to thrust even harder. He pulled out of me and laid on the bed. I climbed on top of him and took control. I gripped the back of the bed for support. His hands gripped my breast and my lips found his.

I laid next to him naked in his bed. I could feel his fingers in my hair. “What made you change your mind?” He asked me. My eyes were fixed on the rain hitting his bedroom windows.

“I lost my sanity.” I heard him laugh a little.

“I’m sorry if I pushed you too much.”

“You didn’t and I don’t blame you.”

“Tell me, Juliet, why did you move to the city?”

“My parents and I had different beliefs. I couldn’t live with them any longer so I left.”

“Different beliefs?” He asked.

“I come from a family that believes in money and connections more than family. They expected things from me that I didn’t agree with. When I told them no they kicked me out and cut me off.”

“You come from money?”

“Yes, a lot, but my beliefs meant more to me. That’s why I’m here. This is my life and no one is going to tell me how to live it.”

“I never would have guessed that you grew up with money. You’re so down to earth and outgoing. I never would have known.”

“I don’t let money define who I am. Besides, I don’t have money now. I gave all that up. I take care of myself.” I felt his kiss on my forehead.

“Why did they want from you?”

“So full of questions tonight?”

“I just want to get to know you.”

“They wanted me to marry a man that I didn’t love or even know. I believe in romance and love. This marriage was a way to merge companies and family’s together. Basically more money. My sister fell for it and she is now in a loveless marriage. She is not happy and I refuse to be stuck like that. My parents disowned me and here I am.”

“Good for you baby.” I smiled and moved closer into his arms.

“Your turn.”

“My turn for what?”

“I want to know about you?”

“I’m rich and own half this city. I’m an arrogant prick. At least that’s why most people would tell you about me. I’m a spoiled trust fund baby. Who took my family’s money and went my own way. My mother died about two years ago and my father and I don’t speak. Because I wanted nothing to do with his business. Whenever I buy new buildings with homes in them. I move in to make sure they run properly. After a year I move on.”

“That must get tiring. I mean where is home?”

“Yeah, I feel like that a lot, but I enjoy the change.”

“Tell me about her.” He got quiet. “Nolan?”

“I don’t want to talk about that?”

“Why do I get the feeling that you are not in love with her?”

“What makes you feel that way?”

“First of all your in bed with me. If you loved her you wouldn’t be here. At least that’s how I feel.”

“Yeah, well I guess that’s the difference between you and I.”

“What does that mean?” I asked sitting up.

“It means I don’t want to talk about it.” He hissed out. That was my cue to leave. I got out of bed and started to grab my clothes. “Baby what are you doing.”

“I think it’s time for me to leave.”

“I’m sorry, don’t go. I’m just not ready to talk about her.” He got out of the bed and pulled me into his arms. “Forgive me, I don’t mean to be a dick.”

“What do you want from me, Nolan. We slept together. What else could you want?”

“Maybe I like you. Maybe you make my world lighter. Please stay?” I sighed and gave in.

“I have work tomorrow.”

“Call in.”

“I will not. I just started.”

“Okay, I promise to have you up in time for work. My car can drop you off.” We climbed back into his bed and he pulled me into his arms.

“I can find my own way.”

“Don’t be difficult. Let me take you to work.”

“Fine, whatever.”

“Thank you.” He said as he rolled over on top of me and his lips rested on my breast and I reached down and took hold of him. Knowing I was getting no rest tonight. My head was full of questions until he took me again and again. Being with him made me rethink who I was. I wasn’t sure if I liked her or not, but I couldn’t help how I felt in his arms. It felt too much like where I was meant to be, but Nolan James had some secrets that he was ready to give up yet. If I was going to continue this thing between us. He was going to have to open up to me. I knew that was going to be a difficult task.
