I sent a quick text to my agent Frank.
Passed out during practice. Doctor released me. I’m resting for a few days and then I’ll be back at training.
You’re now just telling me?
Don’t post anything unless I tell you to. So far, it hasn’t leaked.
I don’t like this...
Shoving the rest of my clothes in my duffle bag I heard a light tap on the door along with, “Hey.” I turned to see Abel step in and closed the door behind him.
“I need to talk to you for a second.”
I noted his worried features.
“Earlier when you were training and everyone was out of the house I was sitting in front of my computer thinkin’ about this stalker asshole. He knows her every move— Her comings and goings and...And then it hit me... That fucker is watching her.”
I furrowed my brow. All of us already knew that. “Well, yeah.”
“No,” Abel shook his head, “as in, he’s watching her.”
I didn’t miss the emphasis on the words ‘watchin’. Still, it hadn’t clicked as to what he was talking about exactly. My stomach sank when he tossed a hidden camera on my bed. At first all I could do was stare at it.
What the fuck!?
Slowly, I reached down and picked it up. The black camera was small. I could probably fit three of them in my palm.
“It’s a night vision camera.” Abel explained. By the way he assembled it together, it was a fast job. He got it to work but it’s not his profession that’s for sure. I would’ve sent it to my coworker to check it for fingerprints but it’s crystal clean. There was dust, and by the looks of it, I’d say that it’s been there for a while.”
“Where did you find this?”
“There’s seven in total.” Abel said.
My head snapped up and I looked at him. “What?”
“Seven— They were all throughout the house. Including Knox’s room, the room she’s sleeping in, both bathrooms...they were fucking everywhere, man.”
My heart raced. I couldn’t wrap my head around what I was hearing. “Have you told—”
“Not yet.” Abel sighed. “I was going to wait until you and Jayden left because Knox is going to lose his shit.”
That was an understatement.
I was glad to see that Abel had thought of that. I wasn’t surprised...Just relieved. Jayden would freak if she found out. She had been making progress in this last week and this would only set her back. Possibly, make it worse than it was before for her.
“I’m going to her house later to see if there’s more there.”
I hadn’t thought of that. “It makes sense that he’d have them there too.”
“This guy is wacked, Gage.”
I didn’t comment.
“It’s a good thing you are taking Jayden away because when he discovers that his camera’s are no longer up he’s going to lose it.” Abel smiled. “And when he does he going to fuck up and I can catch him. He’s going to show up here again, guaranteed.”
Abel took the camera out of my hand. “Finish packing. You guys should leave soon.”
I gave a weary nod as Abel left my room. The thought that I could possibly lose Jayden struck me. It wasn’t the lack of confidence I had in my brother, but the knowledge that the man most likely knew when to strike. And the length’s he was willing to go scared me. I hoped more than anything that we were going about this all right. I rubbed my chest to try to take away the pain that now lingered. I needed her. Needed to hear her voice. Shoving the rest of my stuff into my bag I tossed it over my shoulder and went to find Jayden.
“So— Where are you taking me?” Jayden asked once she hung up with her therapist, canceling her appointment. It was probably not a good idea to skip her appointment but it wasn’t a bad idea either on getting her away from all the turmoil.
I spared her a glance as she lounged back in the passenger seat. Her feet crossed at the ankles as she propped them out the window and I chuckled. “Did you just bat your eyes at me?”
“It’s known to work.” She wasn’t the least bit ashamed of it.
I slipped my hand so that I gripped the inside of her thigh. “Baby, everything about you is a walking temptation.” I grinned when I saw the blush creep it’s way up her cheekbones. I gripped her thigh a little harder and turned back to the road.
“You’re not going to tell me are you?”
We sat a few minutes in silence before I put her curious mind to rest. “Coeur d’Alene.”
“Really?” I smiled hearing the anticipation in her voice. “I love Coeur d’Alene. I haven’t been there in— over a year. You’ve never been have you?”
“No.” I shook my head.
“You’re going to love it.” She said matter of fact. “Where are we staying?”
“At the resort.” I replied. “A friend of my dads has a vacation house in Cougar Bay— I almost called him so we could stay there but I decided against it.”
“Because I’ve planned some thing’s for you and I can pamper you more if we are in the center of town.”
A wide smile crossed her face. “What have you planned, Gage Buchanan ?”
“You’ll have to wait and see, Jayden de Luca.”
She bit her lower lip and I was beginning to get hard. I shifted in my seat and a rich laughter erupted from her.
“Having troubles there?”
“You have no idea.” I chuckled.
She slipped her feet out of the window and rolled it up. “Roll your window up.”
Unsure as to what she was planning, I asked, “Why?”
“Just do it, Gage.” A wicked smile crossed her face. Her pupils dilated and I momentarily froze as the she gave me the ‘Come fuck me gaze’. So, I rolled up my window.
Before I knew it, she closed the moon roof and suddenly from the near illegal window tint, we were surrounded in darkness. I glanced several times her way as she situated herself to face me. She reached over and started to unzip my jeans.
My dick just got harder.
“We can’t leave him suffering like that now can we?” She said in such a sexy voice my anticipation grew. Fuck she was alluring. If you opened a dictionary and looked up the word temptress...You’d have Jayden de Luca as the definition.
She pulled out my dick and wrapped her plump wet lips around it. I nearly saw stars right then and there. And she wasn’t even using her hand. Just her mouth.
“Baby—” my head fell back on the headrest. My eyes became heavy and I had to concentrate on keeping them open. “Fuck you have a sweet mouth.” I’m not a saint. Never pretended to be. I was a man whore. Had been since high school and it only got worse when I got into college and entered the EIC. So, to say the least I have had my share of blow jobs. But none have been like this. The way her tongue glided over my skin, the way she sucked— I could picture her hollow cheeks as she sucked like her life depended on it. Every now and then she’d purposely give it a nip which sent me lingering on the edge. “Any more of that, Jayden and I’m going to—” She did it again. I couldn’t stop my groans from erupting. She began to hum; the vibrations shooting through my dick. “Fuck, baby...I’m gonna cum.”
I gave her a warning in case she didn’t want to swallow. To my surprise she didn’t pull me from her mouth, instead she deep throated me and began massaging my balls. I gripped the steering wheel with one hand and wrapped the other around her scalp. My fingers threaded through her strands of hair as my cum hit the back of her throat. My jaw clenched and my breathing became shallow. Slowly, she pulled my dick from her mouth causing a suction sound to echo in the car. She licked her lips and looked at me. And I’ll be damn...She is more horney now than she was earlier. I quickly pulled over and putting the car in park I unclipped my seat belt. Without having to be told, she slid her shorts off and dug in her purse. She ripped the condom wrapped open and sheathed it over my dick. I wrapped my hands around her waist and hoisted her over the console and so now she straddled me.
“I want you.” She breathed, making my eyes roll in the back of my head as my dick slid in her.
“You’re so tight, Jayden.” I managed to groan. “Fuck, baby.”
Her pants and moans filled my ears and it was the sweetest and most errotic thing I had ever heard. I couldn’t ever get enough of her. I craved her day in and day out. I pulled her shirt up and moved her bra aside. I took her nipple in my mouth and assaulted it with my tongue.
“Gage.” She screamed. She took a deep breath and held it as she ground her hips against mine. I felt her shutter. I pulled my mouth back just enough to say, “Come on me, baby. Come all over me,” before I went back and sucked her nipple. I lightly raked my teeth over it knowing that would intensify her orgasm.
“Oh god!” She whimpered, digging her nails into my shoulder blade, causing me to groan in the back of my throat.
I moved to the next nipple and it wasn’t long before she was quivering once again. “That’s it.” I sucked and licked her collarbone and ran my fingers down her spine. “Keep coming, baby.”
She nudged my face with her jaw causing me to look up and immediately her lips pressed against mine. Our tongues tangled and I gripped her hips, slamming her into. She whimpered and I groaned just before I came with her.
“I love you.” She whispered.
I felt her emotion through her words. What she felt for me was a mirror image of what I felt for her. For a moment I couldn’t distinguish my soul from hers.
I wasn’t sure how long we sat wrapped in each others arms. I couldn’t move if someone tried to make me. “I know we haven’t been together long, but... no amount of words could express what it is I feel for you.” I framed her face between my hands. “I love you, Jayden. I love you, baby so much.”
* * *
Where the fuck is she?”
He cringed at the voice that screamed in his head. Sinking his hands in his hair he gripped tight, pulling and tugging. He rocked back and forth. “I don’t know, Beak.” He groaned.
“She ran off with Gage.” Beak accused. “I told him to stay away from her.”
“Leave her alone!” He shouted. He was losing the fight. Beak seemed to have gotten stronger.
He couldn’t let Beak take control again. He had to fight.
“I’m going to kill Gage for this.”
“He’s too strong.” He replied. He didn’t want to see Gage get hurt because of Beak. He had to try and talk him out of it. “You can’t beat him.”
“Not in your form, you’re too weak— You are a coward.”
“I won’t let you hurt anyone else.” He gripped his hair until his scalp screamed with pain.
“You don’t have a choice.” Beak replied smugly.
Just then his corded muscles relaxed. His hands dropped from his head. A wicked smile broke across his face. He looked over the photos covering the walls in his man’s cave. Why did she torment him like this? Why couldn’t she just choose him? Why did she not see him?
In the far corner of his room, he leaned back, his legs stretched as he propped his boots on the corner of his desk. His arms folded across the logo of his shirt. His head tossed back, eyes closed as the music rumbled from the stereo, ricocheting from one wall to the other.
It was indeed his haven-a place where he could be himself without hindrance. And most importantly, there weren’t any distractions. That is, until his nemesis tried tuning him out. But today— Today he had won the fight against the weak bastard. If only he could get rid of the asshole once and for all. Opening his eyes, they locked on the wet photos that dangled from an old clothing line strung in a z-pattern, covering the framed ceiling to its fullest. Warn wooden clothing pins secured them into place. Using his digital camera would have saved him a lot of hassle, but the process of being able to create her appealed to him more. The anticipation of waiting for them to develop was nearly narcotic. And the ending results were always satisfying. Breaking his gaze, he rumbled through the photos scattered about his desk. Scanning from one photo to the next, he came across one that seemed to pull at him.
Maybe it was her smile. Or the way she’d pristinely posed. Guess it had helped that she wasn’t aware of his presence taking it. Whatever it was, it was worth adding to his collection.
Grabbing the scissors from his drawer, he cut her free from the background and taped to her his wall of self-created art.
He stood back with pride. Three walls were fully covered. The fourth only had a bare patch the size of a poster remaining.
His wall was nearly finished.
And once it was...her time was up. He’d end this ridiculous charade that she’d been playing.
