After a few minutes of this, however, he tugged me off him and pushed me onto the ground so that I was on all fours. I heard the sounds of tearing foil and there was a brief pause before he moved into position behind me. I was already dripping wet, so when he guided the flared head of his cock into place and drove home, he slid right in. He plunged in and out of me, slowly at first, but gradually building until he was going so fast I thought that he was going to launch me across the room. I let out a scream of pleasure,
“Harder,” I begged, rocking back and forth to meet his thrusts.
He happily obeyed, slamming into me harder and gripping my hips to drag me back onto him again and again. He slapped my ass hard, making me yelp with pleasure and pain from the sting of his palm.
I could feel my walls start to shudder and constrict around him as I came hard all over his shaft. And my orgasm seemed to trigger his, sending him howling and spiraling into that abyss of carnal sensation. He pulled out and we collapsed in a heap on the floor, him holding me from behind, his breath hard and heavy in my ear.
Even as I was scattered to the four corners of the wind, trying to collect myself after he made me come apart, another part of me felt more whole than I had since the moment he turned away.
Elliot made me feel whole, and I realized now that love like this was too important to toss aside. This was a once-in-a-lifetime thing, and I had made a terrible mistake letting him go.
And it was a mistake I was never going to make again.
After we had finally caught our breath and I had gotten all of that pent-up emotion out of my system, I turned Candy around to face me. It was time for us to talk, for me to get my questions answered.
“What the fuck, Candy?” I asked softly. “You tell me that you don’t want to see me anymore, that you want to spend more time focusing on your business, and then I see that you’re hosting an auction. But, not only that, I see that you’re actually selling yourself in the auction. What gives?”
I looked her in the eyes, waiting for her to answer me. She looked at me and then down at the floor like she was trying to gather her thoughts.
“It’s a long story, actually,” she said, biting her lip and taking a deep breath. “So bear with me. When I was in high school, I was in a very abusive I threw myself into my passion and turned it into my career. And when I opened the shop, it took off right away, so I vowed that I would always focus on my business, making sure that I put it first before everything. I’ve been doing it for years now, and it’s been great. So, I told myself that I was doing something right.”
She takes a breath and goes on, “But, then, there’s Tammy, the girl that you saw at the restaurant that night. We went to high school together, and I found out that she didn’t like me because she had been dating my ex, Jim, before I started dating him. In fact, I found out that he had STILL been dating her when he asked me out, which is why she’s hated me all these years. That night at the restaurant, we ended up clearing the air, and I proposed a partnership. She turned me down, but we at least were cordial to each other.
“A few weeks after that, Tammy came bursting in the bakery to tell me that an investor was going to buy the building that both she and I had had our sights on. So, that’s why we decided to hold the auction, to come up with enough money to buy out the investor and get the building before he bought it out from under us.
“Then, at the auction, we found out at the last minute that some of the girls weren’t going to make it, so Tammy said that we were going to have to auction ourselves off. I really wasn’t planning on going up there like that, Elliot, I swear. But now I have someone else’s dreams depending on me, too, and I couldn’t just let her down. But the thought of a guy other than you winning me in an auction made me sick.”
“And why is that?” I asked.
“Because I’m in love with you,” she blurted out and then clapped her hand over her mouth. “I didn’t meant to just- I mean…fuck, this is all coming out wrong and I’m rambling, and…
She shifted uncomfortably, not looking at me. I smiled at her, taking her face into my hands.
