She acted very impressed that I’d designed the place. She
had a lot of questions, curious about every inch of the property and how it
pertained to me.
It seemed to me that she was always trying to connect pieces of
One thing I noticed right away was that I never had to dumb my
explanations down for her, which was something that stood out to me, because
the dumbing down was such a common occurrence for me, that I wouldn’t have
taken a note of it, if I’d been doing the opposite. She understood my
references, big and small picture. It was astounding, the more I thought
about it, because she was just so young.
“Why aren’t you in school?” I asked her.
Her eyes twinkled at me. It was too adorable and highly
dangerous. “What, you don’t think I’m reaching my full potential?”
I tried to backtrack. I had a tendency to put my foot in
my mouth. Socially awkward was really a kind way to describe me.
“I-I didn’t say that, I’m just…”
She took pity on me, waving it off with a laugh, and we went on
with the tour.
I had several guest rooms, but I showed her to the biggest one,
with the nicest bathroom.
“You can use this one while I make us that kale drink.”
She shook her head.
I blinked at her.
“I’ll use the shower connected to your bedroom.”
“This one is just as nice. I made sure at least one of the
guest suites was built like a master.”
“Which one do you use?”
“I’ll use that one. No need to dirty this one up just for
“It’s no trouble.”
“I think I can remember the way. I’ll be down in a sec.”
I watched her walk away, having to restrain myself from
What would she do if I got in the shower with her?
Would she let me fuck her?
I got the distinct feeling that she would, but somehow I made
myself walk away.
I had half the ingredients out of the fridge for my shake when I
remembered her bag.
I nearly ran as I grabbed it and brought it up to her. The
shower was running, I could hear it from the bedroom, and like a pervert, I
just opened the door.
The shower was too steamy to make out her figure, thank God, but
my eye was caught by a tiny scrap of neon yellow cloth as I set her duffle on
I picked it up gingerly with two fingers. If I wasn’t
mistaken, it was the tiniest thong I’d ever seen in my life, made up of just a
few stretchy strings and an itty-bitty piece of mesh.
I dropped it like it was on fire and backed out of the room,
keeping my eyes on the floor.
I shut the door very quietly behind me.
I was nearly back to the kitchen when I veered off into the half
bath that connected to the living room.
Her borrowed towel was still on my shoulder, and I buried my
face in it.
I licked my palm, yanked my shorts down, and started jerking
hard on my cock.
I needed to get a handle on this.
I didn’t even think about her body. That was
overkill. My mind stayed firmly on that tiny yellow scrap of cloth as I
groaned and shot my load into the bathroom sink.
I washed up.
I was still panting as I opened the door.
Iris stood there, dressed in another pair of her tiny Lycra
shorts, these ones a pale peach color that emphasized her tan, and a white
sports bra (the front zipper halfway down).
Of course she was smiling.
She touched the twice-used towel on my shoulder. “Maybe I
want to keep this thing. Does it smell like you now?”
I shook my head, then moved past her, heading resolutely to
She sat on the counter while I worked, right smack in the middle
of everything, so I had to constantly move by her. She was perched back
on her hands, her thighs spread just wide enough to make my brain stop
“So what do you do for a living to afford this place?”
“I write books. Mostly crime dramas.”
“Wait, what’s your last name?”
I sighed. She’d likely heard of me. I had a fairly
popular series that had gotten a lot of attention, and some big screen love,
over the last decade. “Masters.”
“Alasdair Masters. I’ve heard of you. How did I
never hear that you were smoking hot, Alasdair?”
I gave her a rueful smile. “You’re buttering me up.
She winked at me. “Not at all. I call ‘em like I see
‘em. So do you use your real name as your pen name, or are you giving me
a fake name?”
“That is actually my name. Not smart, I know, but I got
into the business before I knew better. I graduated college when I was
eighteen, and started writing books a few years before that, and I was too
egotistical as a kid to use a fake name.”
“Not quite. Just a few years ahead. And my father
worked in the business, so I had some very helpful connections.”
“And you’re humble, to boot. Tell me what happened between
you and your ex-wife. How did it all go south after twenty years?”
“You really want me to talk about this? I was in such a
“Were you? What put you in such a good mood?” I
couldn’t see her, but I could hear the smile in her voice. “Does that
good mood have something to do with all the grunting and slapping noises I
heard you making in the bathroom earlier?”
I couldn’t touch that one, couldn’t respond to it. I
ignored it (though I could feel the hot blush on my cheeks) like she’d never
It was too much for me, otherwise.
“Well, to be honest, I suppose there were always troubles.
I just didn’t understand them or even see them. I tried to be a good
husband, as I understood it, tried to make her happy. One day I came home
to find her on her knees, giving some man I’d never seen before a blow job, in my
entryway. Everything went real south after that.”
“Yeah. It didn’t help that she hadn’t given me a bj
for, hell, I don’t know, years. It was a hard thing to see.
I could have used a blow job, or fuck, a smile, and there she was, deep
throating some stranger.”
“That’s terrible. She sounds just awful.”
“Well, I guess it was love, because I hear she’s marrying the
guy, who is way younger than her, by the way. Apparently, I
was just the husband that was holding her back. Of course, she took every
penny she could in the divorce, so at least she doesn’t mind my money.”
“Yeah. Never even thought of a pre-nup. I was twenty
and assumed I was getting married forever.”
“How old was she when you got married?”
“Twenty-three. Which was the last time I dated someone your
age. But enough about me, let’s talk about you. Are you in
college?” I’d already surmised that she wasn’t, but I was trying my best
to be polite.
“Where do you work?”
“Here and there. I was working as a cigarette girl at a
casino, but it was a temporary gig. Now I’m in between. I got a job
offer at Hooters that I’m considering.”
I shot a glance at her chest. “They’d eat you up, wouldn’t
She giggled. “What about you, Dair? Would you eat me
I nearly cut my fingers off.
I took a moment to compose myself as I shoved the kale, carrots,
white tea, cucumber, strawberries, ginger, and spinach into my Vitamix, filling
it to the top. I blended it until it was smooth liquid.
I poured two glasses, sliding one to her. I took my own to
the table in the breakfast nook.
She joined me, taking a long drink. “Not bad. Not
good, but it obviously works. Keeps you fit enough, eh?”
I drank mine in a few big chugs.
She finished hers slowly. I knew she was teasing me when
she licked the rim of her empty cup.
The girl got a kick out of driving me wild.
She rolled the empty glass between her exposed cleavage, giving
me very solid eye contact. “What now?”
I took a few deep, steadying breaths. “I can take you
wherever you want. Just say the word.”
She beamed. “Let’s watch some TV.”
I was incapable of telling her no, and she insisted on the
theatre room, but she wanted to watch cable. Bad cable.
She sat on the bench seat, and I sat a safe two feet away from
her. She picked something god-awful to watch, some reality show about
Gypsies living in the states.
It didn’t matter. I couldn’t have paid attention to that
screen if my life had depended on it just then.
She kept inching closer to me.
She laughed at something on the show, then said, “Can you turn
the lights up? How bright can you make it in here?”
I showed her.
“Can we watch this in your bedroom?” she asked, and I could feel
her looking at me.
“I don’t think that’s a good idea.”
“How about a room with some natural light? And what do you
have to snack on?”
I showed her to the living room, which did have a TV hidden
behind a painting, and an abundance of natural light.
I turned her awful show back on. “What kind of snack do
“I’ll go look and see what you have. Do you mind if I just
make myself at home?”
I shook my head, but I did mind.
I was ready to tear my hair out; I wanted so badly to touch her.
She came back with a strawberry Popsicle. She’d chopped it
in half, so it was just one long stick that bobbed in and out of her mouth.
I was about to lose my shit, and the grin on her face told me
she knew it.
“Want me to grab you one? Or you want to share?”
I shook my head, looking back at the TV, pretending to watch it.
She laughed at something on the show, some woman with orange
skin and black curly hair saying, “More. It can’t be sparkly
She moved in front of me, her barely covered ass nearly in my
I clenched my fists.
She sat beside me, our hips touching. She patted my knee
and went to town on the Popsicle like she was giving me the show of my life.
“Jesus,” I muttered as it disappeared completely into her mouth.
I was so outclassed here.
She sent me a sideways smile that made my heart beat into my
She pulled it completely out, smacking her red lips. “You
said your ex-wife hadn’t sucked you off for years before you caught her with
that other guy. So how many years has it been since you’ve gotten a blow
I ran my fingers through my hair, cursing. “I don’t
know. Fuck. Five years? Maybe more.”
She stood up, moving in front of me again. Very slowly,
like she was testing the waters, she sat on my lap.
She held her Popsicle to my lips, and what could I do? I
licked it, then started sucking it as she pushed it in and out of my mouth, her
head laid back on my shoulder, my hard-on digging like a poker into her ass.
“Show me how you like it, baby,” she whispered.
I sucked hard on it, the noise loud, even compared to the TV.
“Jesus, do you think I’m a vacuum?” she asked, sounding
I stopped abruptly, and she dissolved into laugher, standing
up. She disappeared, then came back, sans popsicle.
“So, tell me, am I too young even to kiss?” she asked, standing
directly in front of me, this time facing me.
I couldn’t answer her.
My opinion was in direct opposition with my need.
