“I should probably go,” Bella said to Lily.
“Already?” Lily’s didn’t want the day would end, but I could see the fatigue was getting to her. The good news was, if I didn’t let her have more sugar tonight, she’d probably sleep like a rock.
“Yes. Thank you so much for inviting me, Lily.”
“What do you say, Lilybug?” I prompted her.
“Thank you, Bella.”
Lily asked her, “How do you say thank you in French?”
“Is that you’re welcome?”
“Oui.” Bella gave Lily a hug and then started toward the door.
“I’ll walk you out.” I held my hand out to lead the way to the hallway that led to the door. “Thank you, Bella.”
“I enjoyed it. Lily is such a great kid.”
At the door, I didn’t open it right away. “She’s my world.”
Her eyes were soft. “I can tell.”
I stared at her for a moment, fighting the urge to ask her to stay. Stay for dinner. Stay for the night. But no, I couldn’t. Still, alone in the hallway, there was one urge I could indulge. I wrapped an arm around her waist and pulled her to me in a kiss.
Her lips were soft and sweet, tasting of cake and ice cream. My kiss wasn’t nearly as long as I’d like. I was playing with fire to even take a moment with her. But I was so filled with emotion and in awe at the way she acted with Lily, I couldn’t stop myself from taking a moment with her.
She smiled, her eyes flirty, as I pulled away. “Tu embrasses bien, Blake.”
“I don’t know what you said, but it turns me on.”
She laughed. “A bientot, Blake. Until later.”
The entire birthday, well the parts with Bella, played over and over in my mind that weekend until, by Monday morning, I wanted to smother her in cake and to eat her while she spoke French. Clearly, I was going mad with lust, but it was hard to consider it a problem. It had been a long time since I’d felt alive.
I arrived at my usual early time before everyone else. As the elevator door started to close, a hand popped in, making the doors open.
“Ah ha… I’ve finally figured out when you get here.” Bella stepped into the elevator.
“What do you mean?” I studied her in her pretty flowy polka dot dress. She always looked so pretty. Even when she was in a prim skirt suit on days we had board meetings, there was a sweet femininity to her.
“I mean I’ve been arriving a few minutes earlier for the past week to figure out when you come in. You’re always the first one here.”
I poked the button to tell the elevator which floor to go to. “I like a little alone time to start the day.”
She frowned. “Oh, well I won’t bother you.”
“You’re already bothering me.”
To make sure she understood my point, I opened my coat. There was no missing the hard cock practically sticking its head out of my pants’ waistband.
“Oh dear.” She looked up at me. “Should I apologize?”
I shook my head as I pinned her against the elevator wall. I kissed her, and like an inferno, heat blasted through my body. I lifted her skirt, wanting to fuck her right there.
I slid my fingers under the waistband of her panties and her slick, wet pussy made me groan. I wanted to fuck her and eat her at the same time.
“Oh Blake.” She rode my fingers, so I obliged by sliding them inside her. I used my thumb to rub her clit.
“Come, Bella. I want to watch you come.” Somehow, my need for release took a back seat as I watched her face. She panted; her eyes closed as she sought her pleasure. Her head dropped back against the wall, distracting me until I kissed the soft flesh of her neck.
She started to moan in a way that I knew meant she was on the edge. I lifted my head wanting to watch as her orgasm overtook her.
“Oh yes!” Her pussy gripped my fingers as her body went taut. Her lips formed a perfect O that she held until she took another breath and then she continued to ride my fingers back down to earth.
The need to fuck her nearly had me whipping out my dick. The only thing that stopped me was the dinging of the elevator that said we’d arrived at our floor.
As the doors opened, I withdrew my fingers while she pushed her skirt down.
“Mr. Alexander.” The head of maintenance stood in front of the elevator doors.
I glanced at Bella to make sure she was put together. Heat flushed my cheeks. Jesus, I’d just nearly been caught fucking my assistant.
“Yes. Mr. Crabtree.” I motioned for Bella to step out before me giving me a chance to button my coat in case my dick hadn’t retreated all the way yet.
