“…Gaela had become a bit of a regular act at Club Nightshade by the time she was eighteen and she’d had quite a following of young men who’d all sworn at one point or another that they would perish if she didn’t gift them with a kiss or a touch of her hand from almost the beginning. Roman, being the protective guardian he was, had made sure that each and every one of those young men understood that they could look, but never touch his teenaged ‘sister’.
What no one understood at the time, what no one would understand for several more years,was that Gaela had absolutely no interest in the young men who worshipped her from outside the glow of the spotlight. No, looking back now, Caine realized that she’d set her sights on him by the time she was eighteen and Caine, who’d watched her grow up, had been hard pressed to not feel a little stirring in his pants whenever the little minx had walked past. The fact that she hadn’t bothered to hide the fact that she was nursing a crush of epic proportions for him didn’t help matters at all. So when she’d managed to catch him alone and taking a break in the basement one night, she’d done her level best to take full advantage of the situation. She’d found him in what would later become her dressing room but was at the time an ad hoc break room, relaxing in an office chair, the music in his ear buds turned up loud enough to be heard across the room.
Eyes closed, mind on the music, Caine hadn’t seen or heard her approach until she had straddled his lap and pulled an ear bud out to purr in his ear, “Finally, I’ve got you all to myself.”
She’d been dressed in a skin tight sheath of a dress that showed off her young, lithe curves to their full advantage and Caine had felt a jolt of raw lust so primal, it left him dry mouthed and drenched in a cold sweat. And the sultry rasp of her voice had gone straight to his cock, hardening it so fast it left Caine a little dizzy. Resolutely, he clenched his jaw and hoped he was strong enough to resist whatever she had in mind. What had followed was a girl’s clumsy attempt at seduction and damn if she hadn’t displayed a raw, natural talent for it, but Caine had carefully turned her down, thankful that she wasn’t more experienced; if she had been, he wasn’t sure he would have been able to resist her allure.
She hadn’t taken the rejection as badly as he’d expected. Instead, Gaela had kissed him one last time and laughed, running her fingers through his hair as she did. “Just wait,” she’d told him, grinning a decidedly wicked and feminine smile, “Someday, you won’t be able to say no.” She’d kissed him again; her body pressing against his and making him think of all the naughty things he’d like to do to her. Then she was gone, leaving behind nothing more than the hint of jasmine perfume, a scent that even now made him think of temptation and a hard-on that took the rest of his lunch break to bring under control…”
