He’s inches from my face. His eyes a black, soulless window into his corner of hell.
“I want to lay you over that table and beat you with my belt, until your skin is flayed open.”
They’re just words, Daniela. I swallow the fear creeping in. “But you won’t.”
His mouth crashes into mine, stealing my thoughts, my breath, and what’s left of my composure.
“But I won’t,” he murmurs, when he pulls back. “Not today.”
“Not ever,” I whisper.
“I wouldn’t take that bet if I were you.”
He’s wrestling with a demon, and I attempt to drag him away. “I’d take that bet anytime, anywhere. You won’t hurt me.”
When I lay out my unwavering faith in his love, he groans, as if in pain, and rests his forehead against mine. His breathing is ragged, and there’s an intensity about him even in repose. The fight’s not over. He’s merely catching his breath.
I ache to wrap my arms around him, but he’s holding my wrists securely in one hand. “Let me touch you,” I plead, softly.
His grip tightens, as though the prospect of my touch threatens him in some way.
Antonio lifts his head and peers into my eyes while his free hand slides under my sundress. He isn’t patient. There are no light caresses to my inner thighs to build my arousal. He goes straight to my panties, and wedges his feet between mine, pushing my legs apart, while his thumb skates over the gusset, working the silky fabric into my wet flesh.
“Someone might come in. And I need to get back to the girls.”
“The nurses will find you when it’s time.” He nips my bottom lip, with the devil dancing in his eyes. “But no one’s coming in. Not even if you scream.”
