“I love you, Ryan.” She says the words, and they’re like warm honey spread over my skin. She thinks I’m the perfect one, when it’s really her. She thinks she’s the one who’s been hiding things. I’ve known all the secrets she thinks she held from me. In reality, I’m the only person in the room with secrets. I’m not as perfect as she thinks I am. I should be the one baring myself to her right now, but she’s the one stripping herself bare.
I close my eyes tightly, the tenderness of her words making my heart jump. She moves her hands between us, and I feel her fingers undoing my belt and then my pants. She pushes them down my waist and over my ass, exposing my cock. I keep my eyes closed, because I don’t know if I can control myself.
“I can’t stand it anymore. I want to be connected to you in every way possible.” She places a soft kiss on my chest as I feel her move, taking off her own pants. “Show me you’ll never let me go. That I’ll always have you, no matter what.”
Unable to stop myself, I glance between us, seeing her push down her panties and kick them off. She’s naked under me, and I can’t stop staring at her perfect body. She’s so small compared to my size, but her curves are mouthwatering. Her full breasts with hard pink nipples look like they were made perfectly to fit in my hands. My cock bobs between us, and a pearl of come beads at the tip. My need for her has surpassed any feeling I’ve ever had in my life. I want her more than I want my next breath, and I can’t hold back much longer. I’ve been holding back so long. The walls are cracking.
She takes my shaft in her hand and strokes me from root to tip, then back down, and grips me firmly at the base.
“Fuck.” I hiss through gritted teeth. Then she tells me what she wants through squeezes of her hand.
“Make.” Pulse. “Love.” Pulse. “To.” Pulse. “Me.” Her words are breathy as she spreads her legs wide.
“Goddamn it, Paige.” I grasp the headboard and thrust into her grip. The little vixen is getting the best of me. She’s the only person in the whole fucking world who can do that. “If you let me in your pussy, I won’t stop. I’ll be like a predator that’s marked its prey. You won’t ever be free of me.”
She nods, a wild look in her eyes that does nothing to slow my desire for her. I tighten my grip on the bed and look down at her exposed pussy. She’s glistening with need, and I can see that she’s ready for me. Ready for this. She’s right in saying we’ve been building up to this moment. There’s no need for foreplay when we both know what we truly want.
“Move your hand,” I say, tightening my jaw. She does what I demand, taking her hand off my cock. “Legs around my waist, and arms on my shoulders.” I want her wrapped around me completely, every inch of her body touching mine as we join together. Again, she does as instructed. “I love you with everything in my soul, and nothing will ever change that. Nothing.”
She nods, her eyes looking to mine, full of anticipation. “I love you, too.” The words come easily from her now.
“I’m clean, kitten, and I know you are, too. I want you skin on skin, with no protection.”
She hesitates for a fraction of a second, and I want to ease her fears. I take a hand off the headboard and grip her chin so she doesn’t miss a word of what I’m about to say.
“You’re the only one I’ve ever wanted this with. And the only one I want for the rest of my life. That means everything, kitten. Love, sex, marriage, kids. All of it. You’ll give it to me because you want the same damn thing, too.”
Her big blue eyes look deep into mine, and a knowing passes between us. I know that’s what she wants. I see it in the way she looks at Miles and Mallory. She wants that, and I can give it to her. I even saw it when she was messing with me and told me she was knocked up, and I told her that baby was mine. Her eyes had lit up for a moment before she masked the want, but I’d caught it.
“I do,” she whispers, and I can’t help but think that with just those two words, she’s agreed to so much more.
“I do,” I repeat, and connect us in the most intimate way possible, thrusting inside her fully in one long stroke.
“Shhh,” I say against her lips when she cries out. She’s a virgin, so I thought this might hurt. I try to hold still and let her adjust. I take her lips in a soft kiss, trying to do all I can to ease the pain. Whispering to her over and over that I love her, wanting her to get used to the words. Her body squeezes around me, and I fight back my release. I want to make this good for both of us, so I move my mouth to her neck.
