After getting off the phone with Henrik I take another shot and now I have to dance. Aria and I make our way to the dance floor and start moving to the music. She is doing her usual moves as if she is a part of a dance routine, step, step, shimmy and jazz hands. As she knocks into people due to limited space, I focus on the grooves and the beat
Suddenly I feel hands grab my hips from behind and someone’s crotch digging into my backside. Guys rarely ask if they can grind on you while dancing in this day and age. I find it annoying but this guy in back of me seems to know what he’s doing so I let him.
I feel his arm slip around my middle pulling me closer to him while his teeth nip at my shoulder.
“You feel good Morgana.” Henrik’s voice dances over my skin causing me to moan and arch my back. I reach back and grab his neck to hold him to me.
He spins me around so I am facing him and damn it if he doesn’t look extra good tonight. The crisp gray button up shirt hugs his chest forcing my hands to skim over it. Yes, it forced me at gunpoint to grope him. What you may call a loose thread I call a gun. A big scary gun making me want to do very dirty things to what is underneath this shirt.
My Brain hiccups and slurs out, “Remember he left you alone on the conference table with your vagina all hanging out and what not.”
She passes out again but not before heaving in the toilet bowl.
“You left me.”
I stop dancing and stare up at his beautiful blue eyes. He closes them and rests his forehead to mine.
“Let’s go somewhere to talk.”
I nod and he grabs my hand tugging me along. Before we make it to the door I stop him.
“Let me grab my stuff.”
I race back to the booth to find Tiffany passed out while Evaleen watches over her.
“I’m heading out. I guess I will see you tomorrow.”
“Tell Payne hi for me Drake. Also, Happy Birthday.” Evaleen winks at me.
I smile as I pull on my coat, scarf, hat and gloves. Now that I look like the abominable snowman I know I am ready for the night air. Once I am out the door I can’t find Henrik. There is a Lincoln Town car parked on the curb and the back passenger window lowers.
“Here.” Mr. Payne’s voice come out of the window as the door opens. Hopping inside the car, I scoot to the seat next to him and buckle up.
“I’m sorry for so much Morgana.”
I turn to look at Henrik and find his gaze is focused on his window. He won’t look at me.
“For leaving you there on that conference table. Getting you fired from Mimir. For taking advantage of you. I understand if you never want to see me again.” Henrik sighs and finally turns his head to face me.
“That would make you happy, to never have to see me again.” Yeah, I’m a little bitter. As much as I can’t control my body when I am around him it doesn’t stop the pain in my heart from escaping.
He grabs my wool covered hand, immediately removing the glove so he can caress my skin. Despite the cold his fingers are warm and his touch feels good.
“No, it wouldn’t make me happy. I know what I said to you seemed harsh that I don’t do relationships, but I was trying to be honest. Everything I have told you has been true, I never lied to you. But...”
The car stops and the driver steps out running to my side to open the door. I get out and realize I am at my apartment building. Is he just dropping me off?
“So what? This is goodbye?”
I turn to watch him exit the car and the driver closing the door behind him.
“No. I was hoping you would invite me inside so we could continue to talk. If I upset you then you can always kick me out again.” He gives a small smile.
I nod and wave at him to follow. Once we are inside he walks over to the couch as he removes his coat. I grab it from him and he looks around the room sniffing the air.
“What is that smell? It smells like sausage, oranges and sweat.”
I quickly hang up our coats on our coat rack by the door and grab his arm before he can sit on the couch.
“Let’s talk in my bedroom. In case Aria comes home, we can have privacy.”
That was close. The couch needs a super vac, Febreze and possibly a bleach-douche to make it tolerable for company.
Once we are in my bedroom I close the door and turn to see him removing his black shoes and making himself quite at home on my bed, lying in the middle. Normally I would protest such a move but he looks too sexy with his hands behind his head and heat in his eyes.
“I thought we were going to talk.” I ask as I kick off my heels and slide next to him on the bed as he pulls me close. It seems so natural to curl up with him. He rests his hand on my thigh that I curl over his legs.
“We can talk and touch at the same time.” I can feel Henrik breathing in my hair which causes my hips to dry hump his leg.
“It’s really hard to talk while your body is so close to mine Henrik.”
I can feel his chest vibrate from laughter.
“Would you rather we sit on opposite sides of the bed Morgana.” He says half chuckling.
I lift my head and lean on my elbow to look at him.
“No. I just mean it may take me a while to think of things to talk about that’s all.”
“Here let me start. I can’t stop thinking about you Morgana. I stupidly thought if we had sex I would be able to get you out of my head, move on. But it just became worse. I haven’t been able to concentrate at work or sleep. I miss you Morgana. I need you.”
He pushes some hair behind my ear and traces a finger from my jaw to my lips.
“I miss you too Henrik. But what about now with work?”
He crinkles his brow at me and shakes his head.
“I don’t understand. What do you mean with work? You work at RT Mitchell. I work at Mimir. I assume they give you normal office hours, we can see each other after work and on weekends.”
He has no idea I have been fired from RT Mitchell, let alone am coming back to be his assistant.
“No I don’t work for RT Mitchell. Mr. Mitchell came in the conference room after you left and found the condom wrapper on the table and me looking a bit disheveled, so you know...fired.”
Henrik’s eyes widen and he brings a hand to his head with a groan.
“Oh god Morgana I am so sorry. Oh fuck! Why don’t you hate me? Damn now I am starting to hate me.”
He pushes himself up to a seated position and leans his head back against the headboard.
“It’s alright Henrik. Yes, I hated you for a bit and myself and made the couch smell like a pig farts but I can’t just turn off my feelings for you.”
He grabs me and tugs me to him as he rolls us over pinning me to the headboard. His lips graze mine. Just as I think he’s about to kiss me he pulls back.
“These past few weeks, without you have been awful Morgana. I want you so much, but more importantly I want you to have a good life. Your job is as important to you as mine is to me. If we keep these flings up we will just get caught again. I don’t want to jeopardize either of our careers.”
I lift my hand to caress his cheek. It, much like the man himself, is rough but the further I travel becomes soft and tender.
“I don’t want that either Henrik. Perhaps...maybe just for tonight. This night we are just Morgana and Henrik and not Ms. Drake and Mr. Payne. Then in the morning we walk away from that and resume our titles of boss and assistant.”
He smiles but it doesn’t reach his eyes and nods his head.
“It won’t be easy to just forget about you like that Morgana.”
I give him a small grin and graze my thumb over his lower lip.
“I know it won’t Henrik, but we can try.”
He nods again but this time there is no smile. His eyes dart around my face as if searching for some answer I don’t even know the question to. Henrik sighs and lowers his head to nuzzle into my neck. We stay like this for a while before I feel his hand searching my body and landing on my breast.
