He jumped when I came up behind him. “Sean, see that little cove? It’s so cute. Can we go check it out? Please,” I added for good measure.
“I thought we’d cruise a little further down the lake before we stopped anywhere.” His jaw seemed tight.
I tried to pout. “Are you sure?”
“Yes. I’m sure.” He was looking straight ahead.
Fine. He could be that way. I was expecting this. I would have to play dirty to break him down. So I gave his hand a little squeeze and smiled. “Okay, you win, for now.”
I went to the front of the boat. He couldn’t avoid looking at me if he wanted to keep steering it. When I started peeling off my t-shirt, the boat lurched a bit. I laughed and steadied myself. Probably, it took me five full minutes to peel off the shirt and my shorts. I did a lot of stretching afterwards. My bikini could not have been smaller. Ricki and I spent
hours arguing over the perfect bikini for this plan. It was a simple suit. It was a deep purple with tiny little straps and push up cups. My breasts were doing their best to escape right now. There was no way he could miss them. I
stretched out on the blanket I’d brought and put in my earphones. I knew the sun would shimmer off of the coconut oil I was slowly rubbing over my arms. I was wearing very dark sunglasses so I could watch him. Oh, he was definitely
trying not to look. It was funny to see him struggling with the urge. What I didn’t get was why he was holding back. I could tell he liked me. He did everything he could to avoid getting close though. I was breaking him down with
relentless dedication. Today, I was bringing out the big guns.
After a little while, I noticed the boat turn towards a secluded cove. I perked up then. I pretended to wake up and sat up. I did my best to look sexy. I made sure he was looking and dragged my long hair across my shoulders. Our eyes met. His were bleak as he looked at me. I didn’t understand the expression. I smiled a wicked smile though. I could smell victory.
He anchored the boat and walked towards me. He hesitated for a minute, seemingly torn, and looked skyward. I held out my hands to him and he took the first steps that would change my life forever.
Resigned, he reached out to me and I tugged him to the deck. He didn’t resist me this time. Slowly, I relaxed against the blanket. Oddly hesitant, he hovered above me. His eyes never left mine. They were that wicked shade of ocean that I wanted to drown in. He was trying to tell me something, but all I could see was infinity in those eyes. I wanted to follow him anywhere. He held my gaze, challenging me to look away. I couldn’t drop my eyes. I was suddenly very aware of a power in him I only vaguely sensed before. I was startled and a little afraid then. But it was far too late for second thoughts.
His mouth came down on mine in a kiss that stopped my heart. A current passed through my lips to my toes. I vibrated with it and tried to arch against him, but I still couldn’t move. He relaxed against me and I melted into the deck. Every inch of me was pulsing against him. My skin felt too tight and too hot, raw and exposed. My heart was skipping beats and I couldn’t quite catch my breath. It was starting to hurt and I moaned against his lips. He dragged his mouth from mine and laid his forehead against my shoulder, his breathing ragged. Raw power surged through his body and my instincts were screaming again. I was getting in way over my head here.
