He took a gallant step toward her. His intense gaze nearly stopped her heart from beating. She stood mesmerized by his muscular chest and seductive brown eyes. Her face heated and all she could think of was his nearness, if he touched her she might very well melt like chocolate. Could it be that the man she’d found herself fantasizing about was looking at her with desire? He must be affected by the close confines and the heat.
“You. Helen, you are one fascinating woman.” He lifted her chin with his finger. Then, he suddenly stopped, just as she thought he would kiss her.
She turned away hurt. Fool, it’s not as though you’re the last woman on earth, just the most convenient one. Trapped in a safe with a gorgeous man. Men like Jack Guardetto wouldn’t give someone like me the time of day outside of AA.
“I can’t do it,” he said.
“Of course you can’t. I didn’t expect you to. It’s hot and neither of us is thinking,” she said facing the wall. Her eyes welled up and she hoped with all her might the power would come on and Kevin would open the door. Please don’t let this man see me on the verge of tears. I have to get out of here. I do not want this. If only I could push him aside and run to my office, lock the door and get back to work.
“No. That’s the problem,” he said and turned her to face him. “I am thinking. I just don’t want to get involved with anyone I work with at AA.”
“I have that rule, too,” she said looking down. Just because she had not been with a man in nearly a year and was stuck in what amounted to a closet during a power outage did not give her the right to break her cardinal rule. No dating anyone employed at AA.
Jack continued to hold his hands on her arms. “Maybe when this store review is over we could get together.”
She looked up at him in disbelief. Did he just ask for a date? Helen nibbled on her bottom lip as Jack rubbed his large hands up and down her arms. Her body trembled, adding to her embarrassment.
“Frigid,” she said under her breath, but Jack heard her.
“Not to me. I think you’re…” he began.
She put her finger to his lips. “Don’t, you’ll regret it. We have to keep our wits about us,” she said. But, when he took hold of her finger and enveloped it between his lips, all thinking ceased. He sucked on her fingers one by one, slowly in and out, making the moistness increase between her thighs. She was nearly gasping for air.
When Jack took her hand to his hardened dick and gently pressed his lips to hers, she sighed. He deepened the kiss, stirring unexplainable emotions in Helen. Feelings she had never before experienced making her blood flow rampantly throughout her quivering body. His hand reached under her blouse and held her swelling breast, making her thrust forward in order to feel more of his hand against her. She moved her hand to his muscular ass as her thigh pressed against his hard penis.
“Helen,” Brent called out from the other side of the safe door.
“Yes, Brent, I’m in here,” she was grateful the words stumbled out. Helen quickly broke away and took the two available steps to the door.
“Charles asked that I check on you. He’s concerned and wants you to know that he’s aware of the situation here.”
Sensing Jack’s sudden nearness, she turned and put her hand to Jack’s mouth.
“Just what is going on here, Brent?” She asked looking at the door but not removing her hand from Jack’s mouth.
“The storm was brutal bringing down trees and electrical lines. It has passed and the energy trucks are out but the rain is coming down heavy and a lot of roads are impassable. As soon as I find out when the electricity is going on, I will let you know. Right now the message I got off my cell phone from the electric providers is they’ll let us know when they know.”
“Thank you Brent,” she said.
“Has anyone been by to check on you besides me?” Brent asked.
Her words caught on the dryness in her throat as Jack playfully tongued every inch of her hand. Her body throbbed and her knees weakened. It took all her might to get out one word. “Kevin,” she managed.
“Oh. I was just wondering ‘cause I haven’t seen Jack and thought maybe he stopped by.”
She pulled her hand away from Jack and took in a deep breath. “No, just Kevin.”
“I’m sure it’s hot in there for you,” Brent said concern lacking in his voice. Hot, he didn’t begin to know just how hot.
“Do what you have to to get comfortable, it could be a while.”
Wetness came upon the back of her neck and she knew Jack had squirted water from her bottle.
She forced herself not to turn around and said, “Did you not hear what Brent said about it being awhile. You shouldn’t waste the water.”
His tongue was on her skin licking up the water before it fell to her shirt. “I’m not wasting it,” he licked her again before adding, “just making the most of it.” His mouth retrieved the water his tongue left behind until every inch of her neck was soaking in Jack’s tongue waves.
How was it he made her tingle in delight? Maybe it was the heat or perhaps the confinement that caused her to let down her defenses. She stopped questioning her next move and just allowed it to happen. It had been too long. Her body was aching with desire for this man. The hunger radiating from his gaze stunned her. She allowed herself to get lost in the moment.
Helen struggled to unbutton her shirt that clung to her like a latex glove. She watched as her blouse fell to the floor; thinking what was about to happen had to be a dream. Then she felt Jack’s fingers under her chin and he lifted her head. His smoldering brown eyes were pleading with her to give in to their desires. He tore his gaze from hers to take in her erect nipples covered in the sheer fabric of her bra. She could see first the surprise and then the delight in his eyes.
