Chapter 17

Joseph’s POV

I hung the phone up with Jensen and then dialed my man I had watching her. His phone just rang then went to voicemail. I threw my phone down on my desk. “Damn it!” I yelled. My best sniper and tracker wasn’t answering his phone and now I was blind about this whole thing. I knew I should have gone myself, but after my last encounter with Lynn, I couldn’t risk Jensen finding out that I was on to him. I had known from the day that I asked him to find her that he was protecting her, I just wanted to see how much he would risk for a woman he didn’t even know. My relationship with him has worked just fine for both of us. His reputation for being a cold-hearted leader had made him almost as feared as I was, so it was only natural for us to work together. I had already started testing his loyalty to me when I sent some men to take his supplies. I have to say he is truly a cold-blooded killer. He took my men out and disposed of their bodies without even a second glance. I had watched him from a safe distance, but he never came to me about the situation and I knew that he had seen that it was my men.

A few days later I was in my office trying to figure out what to do. I still couldn’t get a hold of the man I had sent to watch her. I was going to have to do something about this situation. Either I give Jensen the two weeks more or I go for her myself. I pulled her picture from my desk and laid my head back to think. I closed my eyes and could see her. She laid in my bed naked and covered with a sheet. Her body was perfect down to the little dimples she gets when she smiles. Her lips were pouting at me begging for me to take her and make her mine. Carter had said that she was untouched and that had made me want her even more. There was a knock at my door that made me come back to reality. “What?” The door opened and it was Lane, my second in command.

“Boss we have a problem.” I sat up straight and stared at him.

“What is it?” He walked over and turned the news on. I watched as the picture of my man came across the screen. I turned the volume up and listened to the story.

"In other news. The body of a man was found in a downtown hotel room this morning. Raymond Mann was found shot to death in his hotel room. Police have no leads at the moment, but say it is an ongoing investigation."

I looked at Lane. “He was sloppy on purpose. He wanted me to know that he found my man. Get the men ready. We are going to send a message of our own. Jensen wants a war he is going to get one.”

Jensen’s POV

I sat up in bed as my phone started to ring. I tried not to wake the angel sleeping next to me, but she woke the minute I moved from her. “Where are you going?” I kissed her forehead.

“I’m just going to answer this. I will be back.” She smiled and rolled over as I answered the phone and went out of the room. “Jacob.” His voice sounded urgent as he spoke.

“Boss we found the man who was watching Lynn. He is held up at a sleazy downtown hotel. What do you want us to do?” I knew Jacob wouldn’t let me down.

“Is he one of Joseph’s men?” I asked.

“I believe so I will know for sure when I see the tattoo.” I knew that I shouldn’t do what I was about to, but I wanted King to know I was coming for him.

“Kill him and leave the body. I want it to be found.” There was silence at first then Jacob agreed and hung up the phone. It was time to move. I needed to get Lynn to Rome. Once Joseph finds out his man is dead then an all-out war is going to start and I didn’t want her caught in the crossfire.

I came back into the room and Lynn was already in the shower. I went to the bathroom and stripped down. I opened the curtain and stepped in behind her. I wrapped my arms around her and held her silky smooth body against mine. “What are you doing Jensen? I need to shower babe.” I kissed her neck and smiled as she giggled a little.

“Let me wash you and then we have to leave.” She handed me the loofah she had in her hand and I started to wash her back. My hands reached to her front and started to massage her breast. I dropped the loofah and let the soap on my hands run down her body. She pressed her ass against my now hard cock and started to bend over to get the loofah. I watched her and couldn’t help myself. I aligned myself and pressed my cock into her filling her completely. She moaned loudly as I slammed myself into her harder and harder. Fuck she felt so good. I felt her body tightening around me. I placed one of my hands on the wall in front of us and held her with my other hand. She came hard as I followed with her completely lost in ecstasy.

I released her and she stood back up and faced me holding the loofah. “I should bend over in front of you more often.” She said smiling at me with that sexy smile she has. She placed the loofah against my chest and began washing my body. Her touch felt wonderful and I knew I was going to miss this, but I knew that it was for her safety. Besides, she would be back in my arms again, plus I still had the few days I would be with her in Rome. We finished our shower and got dressed. She didn’t say much as she got her bags together. I knew something was bothering her so I walked up and took her into my arms. “What is bothering you, love?” She looked up at me and I saw that same look in her eyes that I saw in Catherine’s eyes the last time I left her alone.

“I am worried, Jensen. I don’t know what it is, but I have a bad feeling about this whole situation.” I held her close trying to comfort her.

“Everything will be fine Lynn. You will be safe and I swear this will be over soon.”

She looked up at me. “I am more worried about you. I just have a bad feeling about this battle with Joseph, from what I have learned about him he is a dangerous man who stops at nothing to get his way.” I backed away from her with confusion washing over me.

“Who have you been talking to?” She didn’t say anything just pulled out her laptop. She turned it on and a google search on Joseph King came up.

“I was just trying to figure out who he was and what he was capable of. Jensen he has done some horrible things and always gets away with it. I just don’t want to lose you. I have already lost my family, I can’t lose you too. Please stay with me in Rome.” I laughed and this upset her more. “Why are you laughing? This isn’t funny.” I stopped laughing and looked at her.

“I am laughing because he may be dangerous, but I am worse. He won’t even know what hit him when I am done with him. I can promise you that.”

Lynn’s POV

His eyes were dark and I believed every word he said. “Okay Jensen, I know you can handle yourself. It doesn’t mean that I will worry any less.” The darkness faded away from his eyes and he came back to me.

“I know you will worry, but I will be fine. Now come on, we have a long flight.” He yelled for Dillion who came in as I walked out the door.

“I am going to go grab a cup of coffee before we go do you want one?” Jensen nodded and began taking with Dillion. I left them to it and walked down to get us coffee. After I made the coffee to go I walked back into the foyer to see Dillion carrying my bag out. He faked like he was struggling with my bag.

“I’m so glad you travel lightly. I don’t think I can handle all the weight.” I giggled at his stupidity as he walked past me and out to the car.

“Well I am glad to see that Dillion and you seem to get along because he is going to be staying with you in Rome.”

I turned around and held my breath as I looked at Jensen standing at the bottom of the stairs. He was wearing a plain black t-shirt that showed off his abs and chest muscles perfectly. A pair of ripped black jeans with black converse high tops and a black leather jacket thrown over his shoulder. He was breathtaking and I could feel my lust for him rising more and more. I calmed myself and walked over to him and wrapped my arms around his neck. “Aww. Are you jealous handsome?” His arms came around my waist and pulled me up to him.

“Nope. I scare Dillion to much to worry about him.” I giggled as he playfully poked me in the nose with his finger. “Now come on the jet is waiting.” I looked up at him.

“The jet?” He smiled at me with a big grin.

“I chartered a private jet for us. I don’t want to risk Joseph seeing us together at the airport. He has to believe that I am still working for him.” I nodded, but secretly I was as excited as a little kid going to Disneyland.

We got into the car and headed to the airport. Jensen sat with me and Dillion rode in the front with Jacob. We drove straight on to the tarmac to a private hanger. Jensen got out and held his hand out for me. I took it and he helped me out of the car. He lead me onto the jet and I was amazed. There were six huge white leather seats, a couch and a TV. I couldn’t believe how big it looked on the inside. Jensen and I took a seat on the couch and Dillion sat in one of the chairs. “Hey Boss I could get use to traveling like this.” Dillion kicked his feet up on the seat in front of him and Jensen threw a pillow at him from the couch.

“Don’t get to use to it this is a one-time thing. For now.” Jensen smiled at me as an attractive brunette approached us.

“Mr. Daniels we will be taken off in a few minutes. Can I get you anything?” She smiled at him and touched his arm lightly. I have never been a jealous woman, but seeing her touch him sent me into a rage.

I grabbed her arm and turned her to me. She had a shocked look on her face as I pushed her away from us. “Don’t ever put your hands on him again. I’m not sure what you think is appropriate conduct in this line of work, but touching your male clients like that is not appropriate. Do I make myself clear?” She nodded at me and I let her arm go. “Good, now I will take a coffee with cream and sugar. Thank you.” I looked at her name tag. “Tracy. That will be all.” She hurried to the front of the plane. I looked around and saw Jensen and Dillion staring at me. “What? The bitch had it coming.” They both started laughing hysterically. Dillion looked over at Jensen.

“Man, you got a keeper here boss. I just wouldn’t piss her off.” I laughed at that as the plane started to move. I enjoyed the moment of seeing Jensen laughing. His smile was amazing and I hoped to see it more. The plane left the tarmac as I settled myself into his arms. He turned on a movie and I drifted off to sleep with his arms wrapped around me. I didn’t know what would happen, but I knew that in his arms I felt safe.
