Lena sat at the head of the table in the conference room. She had the two interns who had been at the office prior to her arrival, two that her soror was able to send over from the University of Chicago, and the delivery guy. Lena kept a straight face but smiled to herself. The group was diverse. There were three guys and two girls. Two were black, one white, one Indian, and one Korean. Lena only hoped they would be up to the challenge of working for the company.
“Okay, for those who are new, welcome to Hurst Marketing. I’m senior partner Lena Thomas. I currently run the Miami office alongside our founding partner Paul Hurst. Down the hall is Roderick Cartwright. He is a senior partner in charge of the London office. He is also firing half the staff here as I speak.” Lena paused for a few gasps from the two interns who had already been with the company. “This internship is going to be a lot of work but I guarantee it will be worth it. There is paperwork for you new guys but we will worry about that later. Right now, we have work to do.”
Lena pushed a stack of files to the middle of the table.
“These are ten cases that need to be fixed. I need summaries of what they want, what is wrong with the case now, and action plans by four.”
Lena smiled and then left the interns in the conference room. There was yelling coming from the other end of the hallway. She turned to the nearest secretary.
The secretary looked at her nervously. “I already called security.”
“Thank you.” Lena smiled at her. “At eleven you should take some menus into the interns. Lunch is on me if they can all agree to one place.”
Lena watched security come into the hallway. They walked up to the office that would have belonged to the senior partner if there was one there. The door flew open and one of the junior partners came out. He was beet red and had his chest puffed out. He tried to turn and go back to the office but security grabbed him.
Lena’s phone began to ring. She saw it was Paul and answered. “You wanted to be a part of the fun.”
“Is that sarcasm?”
“How is it going?”
“Let me call you on video.” Lena hung up and then called Paul back. She had the camera aimed at the commotion. The security guards were dragging the junior partner out of the office as he kicked and screamed obscenities. After they were out of the suite, Lena looked at Paul. “Does that answer your question?”
“Shit.” Paul held his head. “Okay. I got another suite for the two junior partners I am sending. One of your hires from LA and one of Rod’s from London. They arrive tonight.”
“Rod is keeping one here and he is on the fence about the third. I was in with the new interns so I am not sure what he decided.” Lena walked down the hall to the office where Rod was still pacing. She put her hand on his back. “Rod?”
Rod was shocked how instantly he calmed down. He turned to Lena and smiled. Then he looked at Paul. “What is this mess you pulled me into?”
Lena shut the door to the office after Rod took the phone from her. “Paul says he’s sending help.”
“This office will need a senior partner. Either that or we have to shut it down.” Paul responded. “I sent one from LA and one from London. Both were recommended for the next line of promotions. However, since neither of you are allowed to resign and neither are any of the others, there weren’t going to be any openings anytime soon.”
“Well now there is one.” Rod sipped his water.
“I didn’t mention the opportunity to either of them. Let’s see how they step up.”
Lena could tell Paul was pacing. She decided to change the subject. “So, where exactly are my tickets?”
Paul laughed. “In the safe. I actually purchased a box that seats six as part of a fundraiser.”
“Tickets?” Rod looked from the phone to Lena.
“Paul promised me tickets to the ballet.”
“Rod, you should escort her. I know you like that sort of thing as well.”
“You don’t have floor seats to the Bulls?” Rod teased.
“Come to Miami and you can see the Heat.”
“I’m holding you to that.” Rod looked up at Lena. “I actually do love the ballet.”
“So take some people if you want. My wife said the next show is a black-tie affair on Valentine’s Day. Should be nice.” Paul paused. “Oh, Lena, your assistant refuses to let me look in your files.”
“What do you need from my files?”
“The notes from the Kincaid thing.”
“That file is with me. I will have one of the young ladies scan it.”
“Thanks.” Paul looked at Rod. “How many more people do you have left to fire?”
“He was the last one. I decided to keep the other two junior partners. That asshole refused the severance package and said he would be getting an attorney.”
“Nice. My attorneys have been bored lately.” Paul laughed. He looked at Lena and Rod standing next to each other. He couldn’t help but take a screenshot. “Okay. The dynamic duo is on the case. I will check back in at five.”
Rod handed Lena back the phone after Paul hung up. “So… the ballet.”
Lena smiled. “An all-black company. It was the only way Paul could get me to come to Chicago in this weather.”
“Good thing I have my tuxedo.”
Lena tried not to think too hard about how Rod would look in a tuxedo. She put her phone in her suit jacket pocket. “The interns are working. What’s next?”
“Staff meeting in the lunchroom.”
Lena sighed. “Let’s get this over with so we can get back to work.”
“Devin, can I see you for a second?” Lena walked to the senior partner’s office. She shut the door behind Devin when he followed her in.
“Yes ma’am.” Devin looked only slightly less nervous than he was the night before.
“Tell me what I need to know.”
Lena laughed. “Rod is still on the phone with Paul. I need you to tell me what I absolutely need to know before he gets to this office.”
Devin sighed. “I’ve been dating Rae since October.”
“Okay.” Lena smiled. “Now that we have that out of the way, we can move onto the next big thing.”
“You’re going to tell him?”
“No. You are.”
“Do I have too?”
Lena was getting ready to say something when the door opened and Rod walked in. He immediately shook Devin’s hand. “You did a great job for your first day.”
“Devin was just getting ready to tell me why he didn’t have an internship lined up.” Lena wasn’t actually lying. That was something she wanted to ask him before she let him leave.
“Yeah, what happened?” Rod leaned against the open door.
Devin took a deep breath. “I had one. I won’t name the firm but the director of the program wanted me to cut off my crown. She said it didn’t look professional.”
Rod hung his head down and touched his locs. “I have heard that before. Well, her loss is our gain.”
Lena shook her head. “I’ve lost a few job opportunities behind my locs. Just know, everything happens for a reason. Clearly, Paul doesn’t have an issue with it.”
“Thanks again for the opportunity.” Devin smiled.
“No sir.” Devin tensed up a little and looked at Lena.
“We’ll see you tomorrow morning.” Rod patted Devin on the back as he walked out of the office. Once he was gone, Rod turned to Lena. “He’s a good kid.”
Lena started to say something but decided against it. “Yeah. They all are.”
“Something about Devin though.” Rod smiled. “I’m glad you had the good sense to get his resume last night.”
“So what is on deck for tonight?”
“You’re going to sit down at that desk and call your babies. Then we’re having an early dinner with a client. Your assistant said that you are having drinks with someone at eight. So I will drop you off.”
“It is just my best friend’s cousin. You should come too. She didn’t want me to be here working too much.”
“You sure? The ladies in my life seem to think I cramp their style.”
Lena smiled. “I will gladly allow you to keep men from talking to me.”
Rod smiled. “Okay. Call Terry before he loses his shit.”
Lena laughed. “You know my son. He probably is refusing to eat dinner because I haven’t called yet.”
“I’m going to go clear the staff out of here. They have worked hard enough today.”
“I agree. I got the interns’ lunch today but…”
“I will get the staff lunch on Thursday. A few of the secretaries have lunch plans tomorrow.”
“Sounds like a plan.” Lena sat at the desk and called Terry’s tablet.
Rod kept reminding himself that he promised his daughter he would behave. He told Rae that he was going out with Lena and her friends.
“Daddy, I know you like her.”
“How do you know that?”
“I’ve only known you my whole life.”
Rod laughed. “Okay. Fine. I do like her.”
“You need to behave yourself. She is recently divorced and y’all live a zillion miles away from each other.”
“Yes, I understand it’s complicated.”
“What are you doing tomorrow?”
“Paul has a box at the ballet. Lena said I should invite you but I don’t want to mess up your day. I am sure you have a young man you are hiding from me.”
Rae laughed. “The ballet sounds awesome. We were just going to stay in.”
“So I like the idea of you two going out better.”
“Send me the details about the ballet and we can meet you there. I want you to behave.”
“I don’t swear.”
“I know. That’s why I want you too.”
Rod sighed. “I have to go. Lena’s ready.”
“I swear I won’t start anything. I will behave myself.”
Rod made it a point not to regret anything but he regretted that promise. They were having drinks with Lena’s friend Shelly and ended up meeting up with Shelly’s friends at a West Indian club. The fourth pitcher of rum punch was almost empty and there were only six of them sharing. Rod had already learned three important things that night. Lena had an amazing tolerance for rum punch, she loved Soca music, and she could work her waist in a fashion that had him questioning her heritage. He was struggling with keeping up with the conversation while resisting the urge to nibble on her neck. Lena was sitting so close to him that he got a whiff of her with every breath.
Lena glanced back at Rod. She hoped he was enjoying himself. He seemed to be even though she could tell he was in his head a little. She leaned closer so he could hear her over the music.
“You aren’t thinking about work, are you?”
Rod smiled. “Nope.”
“Good.” Lena smiled and turned back to Shelly. “Girl, it’s late and I have another long day ahead of me tomorrow.”
“You got plans tomorrow night?”
“Nice. I wish I could go to the ballet.” Shelly smacked her boyfriend.
Lena shrugged. She and Shelly’s boyfriend had talked earlier and they would be joining Lena, Rod, Rae, and Devin the next day. It was going to be a surprise. “I will call you Thursday.”
“Text me to let me know y’all got in okay.” Shelly gave her a hug. Then she turned to Rod. “Nice meeting you Rod. Too bad you’re just a coworker.”
Rod laughed. Shelly had been trying to suggest that Lena give Rod a chance. Rod had been the one brushing off the suggestions while Lena simply blushed. “Nice meeting you.”
Lena couldn’t help but sway to the Wayne Wonder song playing as she headed to the door. She stopped walking and allowed Rod to get close to her. Lena took his arm and put it around her waist as she danced.
Rod leaned down. “I thought you were ready to go.”
“Yet here we are.”
Lena smiled. “I love this song.”
“As do I.” Rod danced with her for the rest of the song. Then he led her to the door after his phone buzzed.
The frigid air hit Lena and she wished she had brought a bigger coat. Rod led her over to a waiting car. She was thankful that the driver had the heat blasting. “Why is it so cold here?”
Rod and the driver laughed. Rod put his arm around Lena as she leaned closer to him. “You have zero concept of winter.”
“We don’t do winter in Miami.”
“We don’t do winter like this in London.”
Lena tilted her head and looked up at Rod. “What do you do in London?”
Rod started to answer but looked in Lena’s eyes. He swore she was no longer talking about weather. He looked out the window at the passing city.
Lena looked back down at her lap. “I hope you had fun.”
“I did. Thank you for inviting me.”
They rode the rest of the way in silence. Rod helped Lena out of the car and tipped the driver. Then he watched her walk into the building. Her hips swaying was hypnotizing him. Rod counted while they were in the elevator. It was the first thing he could think of to keep him from kissing her. He almost grabbed the back of her curve flattering jeans as they walked inside the condo. Remembering his promise caused him to sigh.
Lena turned around to face him. She had been feeling the rum punch and felt the intense urge to kiss him. Instead, she smiled at him. “Rod…”
“Thanks again for hanging out with me tonight.”
“Are you going to sleep?”
Rod checked his watch. It was just after midnight. “I’m going to shower and read over a few reports first.”
“Okay.” Lena turned and walked to her room before she embarrassed herself. Rod had been a perfect gentleman all night and all she could think about was getting him out of his clothes. She hoped a shower would take her mind off of that.
Lena stood under the shower for ten minutes before she even grabbed her soap. She was so incredibly turned on that she wasn’t sure what to do. In one thought, she cursed herself for not bringing her vibrator with her to Chicago. In another thought, she couldn’t help but remind herself there was an incredibly sexy man across the condo from her. The relaxing fragrance of her lavender scrub mixed in with the large quantity of rum punch and began to imagine Rod holding her as he had on the dance floor. She got out of the shower and tried to divert her thoughts while rubbing on her body oil. Finally, she put on her robe and left the bathroom. Lena didn’t stop in her room. She headed out of her room and across the condo. After taking a deep breath, she knocked on his door.
“Come in.” Rod had gotten out of the shower, threw on some shorts, and was trying to distract himself with emails when he heard the knock on his door. He closed his laptop when Lena came in his room. His eyes slowly moved from her ankles up to her thighs, which is where her robe stopped. He took a deep breath and swallowed, still trying to behave. “What’s up?”
“You, I hope.” Lena paused and then smiled when Rod held his hand out to her. She walked over to the bed and stood in between his legs. Words were floating through her head but nothing made enough sense for her to say it out loud. So she simply leaned down and kissed him.
Rod had done his best not to start anything but he was not going to prevent himself from finishing it. He grabbed Lena by her thighs and pulled her close to him. She climbed in his lap and opened her robe. Rod wasn’t sure where he wanted to put his mouth and where he wanted to put his hands because he wanted both to be everywhere. He decided to take his time and explore Lena’s body, savoring each and every moan and giggle that escaped her lips. Rod wanted to give her plenty of time to change her mind before penetrating her, while giving her every reason not to change her mind.
Lena pulled Rod’s dick out of his shorts. Her hands were still a bit slick from her body oil and she rubbed him until he playfully bit her breast. She grinned as he moaned. Lena could tell he wanted to be inside her. She whispered in his ear. “Rod, baby, I want to cross this line.”
Rod grabbed her ass and lifted her up, spreading her open. He slowly eased his way inside of her and moaned as her walls closed in around him. With his face buried in between her breasts, he playfully smacked her ass. Lena put her hands in his locs and began to ride the full length of him. Rod gladly let her maintain control. He felt like he could stay just like that forever, massaging one breast as he nibbled on the other. Then he felt the intense urge to watch Lena lose control. He moved his hand down in between them and spread her lips wider as she was sliding almost off his dick. Just as she began to slide back down closer to him, he pressed his fingers against her clit and pushed his dick deep inside her. Rod leaned his head back and watched Lena’s chocolate skin flush. Her eyes closed and she cried out in surprise. He placed his other hand on the small of her back to steady her as she quaked.
“Rod…” Lena could barely get words out. She gasped as, in the middle of her orgasm, Rod stood up and turned them around. With her on her back, he pounded into her a few times before pulling completely out. Then he spread her legs wide and buried his face in her pussy. Lena cried out as she came harder than she had in years. She did not squirm away from him, instead massaging his head and pushing it closer to her as he licked and sucked her sweetness. When she finally let his head go, Rod stood up and looked at her.
He was absolutely captivated by her. Her long legs spread wide, thighs and pussy glistening. Breasts now in her hands as she continued to slowly come down off the high of her orgasm. Lena’s stretch marks were like the icing on the sexiest cake he had seen in ages. Her locs framed her perfect face, eyes fixed on him. He wanted to wrap her up and take her back to London with him. He wanted to never have to let her go. One encounter, that was far from over, and Rod felt like he hadn’t felt since he was in undergrad. He felt that same feeling he felt when he had met Rae’s mother.
“I know what you are thinking.” Lena smiled at him.
A loud voice in Lena’s head was screaming that things had gone way past complicated. Rod looked at her in a way that she hadn’t seen since she was twenty-two. However loud the voice was, she listened to the softer voice telling her to please him. That voice told her to continue to lose all control and please that man standing over her. She rolled over and got up on her hands and knees. After arching her back, Lena turned her head and looked back at Rod.
“Come here Mr. Cartwright. I want to dance with you.”
Rod’s dick seemed to nod in agreement on its own, causing Lena to giggle. Rod moved closer and smacked her on her ass. Then he slipped his dick back inside her. Much to his delight, Lena worked her hips the same way she had on the dance floor earlier that night. Rod stroked deep inside of her, resting his hands on the small of her back. As he felt his climax approaching he took one hand and began to massage her clit in a circular motion. He did it very gently at first. But as her moans grew louder and he felt her walls begin to spasm, he began to rub harder and faster.
“Roddy, baby…” Lena moaned and her hips movements stopped as her orgasm took complete control over her body.
Rod grabbed a thigh in each hand and held her up as he pounded into her now tight walls until he felt himself explode inside her. He groaned, squeezed her ass, and wondered how they would be able to continue on working together now that he had tasted how thoroughly amazing Lena was.
Lena woke up to the sun in her face and her tablet vibrating against her arm. She wiped her eyes and answered the call.
“Good morning mommy. Happy Love Day.” Terry yelled.
“Happy Valentine’s Day mommy.” Evan put his head next to Terry’s.
“Awwww. Good morning my loves. Happy Valentine’s Day to you too.” Lena smiled.
“Daddy said your presents are at your job.” Evan smiled.
“Thank you baby. Did you guys see what I got you?”
“Na-Na said I have to wait until after breakfast,” Evan responded.
Lena looked over at the clock. It was a quarter to seven. She sighed. “Na-Na is making breakfast.”
“Yes.” Terry nodded.
“Daddy is still sleep.” Evan shrugged.
Gwennie walked up behind the boys who appeared to be sitting on the floor in their room. She squealed. “Mama.”
“Hi princess.” Lena smiled. “Evan, you need to wake your daddy up or he will be late for work.”
“Yes ma’am.” Evan stood up. “Are you gonna call us before you go to the ballet?”
“Of course I will. I have to hear about your day at school.”
Evan smiled. “Okay.”
“Mama.” Gwennie squealed and pressed her face against the tablet.
“No Gwennie. You can’t eat my tablet.” Terry picked up the tablet and then sat it down in his lap. “Mommy, don’t be mad.”
“Why would I be mad?” Lena raised her eyebrow.
“I asked Mr. Roderick to do a thing for me.”
“Huh? How did you do that?”
“I called your work and asked Ms. Pam to ask him.”
Lena held the sheet to her chest as she sat up. “You called my assistant.”
“Cause it’s a surprise.”
Lena looked at her four year old son and couldn’t help but smile. “Thank you baby.”
“Can you see if he did it?”
“It’s still early here.”
“Can you call me back?”
Lena laughed. “I will send you a picture of whatever it is.”
“Mama.” Gwennie reached her hand to cover the camera.
Annette walked in the room. “Terrance James Thomas, what did I tell you about calling your mother so early.”
“Evan did it. He wanted to talk to her before school.”
“Go brush your teeth and wash your face before I pop your behind.” Annette picked up the tablet and smiled at Lena. “Thank you for my tickets to Anguilla.”
“I told Kareem we would be fine without you for a few months.”
“Yes, but will I be fine with Tantie for that long?” Annette laughed. Then she paused. “Lena, sweetie, have you made a friend up there?”
“Um…” Lena looked around the room. She was alone in Rod’s room. “Why do you ask?”
“You may be chocolate but you have hickeys all over your clavicle.”
Lena hung her head down. “Um…”
“Here comes Kareem. We’ll talk about this when you get home.” Annette winked at her and hung up the call.
Lena dropped the tablet next to her and collapsed onto the pillows. She still felt a bit of a haze from all the rum punch. Her mind slipped back to how she ended up in Rod’s bed. Then she recalled waking up once before, sticky from their first encounter. She had made her way to his bathroom, emptied her bladder, and then got in the shower. She didn’t notice him join her until his hands slipped around her waist and his lips touched the back of her neck. Rod made love to her in that shower at three in the morning. Lena felt her wet locs with one hand and her aching thighs with the other.
“Woman, I promised my daughter I would behave and you are making it impossible to keep said promise.”
Lena sat up on her elbows and smiled at Rod. She looked at the tray he was carrying. “What’s that?”
“By special order of young Terrance.” Rod walked over and sat the tray down next to Lena. “Breakfast in bed for his Valentine.”
“I told Pamela I would have breakfast delivered here. I then ordered some groceries and the maid service was kind enough to put them away while we were at work yesterday. Wasn’t quite sure how to pull off the in bed delivery until…”
Lena leaned over and kissed Rod softly on the lips. “Thank you.”
“You’re welcome. Happy Valentine’s Day.”
Lena picked up the tablet and took a picture. She then sent the picture to Terry. A moment later an instant message popped up. Lena held up the tablet to show Rod where Terry had typed “thank you Mr. rod”.
Rod chuckled. “That kid is a genius.”
Lena ate a bite of bacon. “You cooked this for me?”
“How many meetings do we have today?”
“Three. One at nine. A lunch meeting. Then one at three.” Rod sighed. “Ballet starts at eight.”
Lena fed him a piece of bacon. “I am going to need a jumbo cup of coffee and at least one power nap.”
“I am going to need to not want to pull you into a dark corner and wrap your legs around my waist.”
Lena giggled. “I can’t help you there.”
Lena pushed the tray to the side and pulled Rod down so his back was against the bed. Then she crawled down and threw her leg over so she was sitting with her ass in his face. She pulled his dick out of his shorts and kissed the tip of it. “I encourage bad behavior.”
“He’s going to fire me.” Devin paced the floor.
Rae grabbed him by his arms and steadied him. Then she fixed his tie. “He’s not going to fire you. My dad isn’t like that.”
“Mrs. Thomas tried to get me to tell him again this morning but I chickened out.”
“It’ll be fine.” Rae paused. “As long as he’s in a good mood. Was he in a good mood today. I haven’t talked to him.”
Devin chuckled. “You sure nothing is going on between him and Mrs. Thomas?”
“Well he struck me as a man who enjoyed his night last night.”
“Huh?” Rae raised her eyebrow. “What do you mean?”
“Nothing terribly noticeable but he was in a nothing-can-fuck-with-me-today kinda of mood all day. If they aren’t together they should really think about it.” Devin nodded. “The two of them in this meeting they let us sit in on was like theater. Pure art.”
“Well he promised me he would behave.”
“So he does have a thing for her.”
“Yeah. I think he has had a crush on her since they met over ten years ago. But daddy has never wanted to get serious with any woman.”
“I think I heard she’s married.”
“Divorced.” Rae looked out the window of her apartment. “They’re here and in a limo.”
“Mr. Hurst must really owe them big.”
Rae laughed. “Daddy’s old fashioned and going to come up to get me. Plus he knows I have been hiding you.”
Devin sighed. “He’s going to either fire me or kill me.”
Rae looked out the window. “Looks like Lena’s coming up with him. You’ll be fine. She talked him down from killing my last boyfriend.”
Devin’s eyes got wide but Rae kissed him before he could say anything.
Rod turned to Lena after she followed him into the entryway of Rae’s building. Rae had just buzzed them in. “I thought you would stay in the limo and away from the cold.”
“I wanted to peek at Rae’s place.” Lena smiled.
Rod watched her as she stood in the elevator. “What do you know that I don’t know?”
“Any number of things.” Lena grinned. She had listened to him simultaneously promise to be nice to Rae’s secret boyfriend while also promising to break his neck.
The elevator door opened and she followed Rod down the hall to Rae’s door. He pulled out his keys and Lena smacked his hand. Rod looked at her. “What?”
“Don’t do that.”
“She buzzed us in. She knows I am coming up. I paid for this place. Of course I have a key.”
“I don’t care.” Lena took the keys from him and knocked on the door.
Rod reached for the keys but she held them just out of his reach on the other side of her. He wrapped his arm around Lena’s waist and pulled her close.
Rae opened the door and put her hand on her hip. “Daddy, you promised to behave.”
“I’m behaving.” Rod let Lena go.
Lena hugged Rae and whispered in her ear. “I’m not.”
Rae laughed and then hugged her father. “So daddy, I hope you’re in a good mood.”
Devin came out of the kitchen. “Hi, Mr. Cartwright.”
“Devin. Hi.” Rod looked at Devin, then Rae, and then Lena. “Wait…”
“I was going to say something but work didn’t seem like the appropriate place.” Devin was hesitant.
Rod put his fingers on his temple. Lena reached out and took his hand. She pulled him close and whispered in his ear. “You said yourself that he’s a good kid.”
Rod turned to her and started to say something but Lena put her finger over his lips. He kissed her finger and went to wrap his lips around it when Rae cleared her throat.
“We’re still in the room.”
Devin chuckled. “Told you.”
“Told her what?” Lena raised her eyebrow.
“That you two look good together.” Devin smiled.
Rod shook his head. “Let’s go. We’re meeting the rest of our group at the theater.”
Rod was sitting on the floor, sipping on a warm cup of tea while typing up a proposal that needed to be ready for a presentation the next morning. Lena was sitting on the couch reviewing the work the interns had done. Their junior partners had already polished it up a bit but Lena was still finding a few areas that needed improvement.
“When I took this job the goal was to become a senior partner so that I wouldn’t have to do so much work.”
Rod laughed. “Same.”
“What were we thinking?”
“I think we have the flexibility to not have to work this hard all the time. It is necessary, however, that we do get our hands dirty else we end up with this chaos.”
Lena sighed. She sat her laptop down and stood up. “I need a break.”
“What kind of break?”
“I don’t know.”
Rod sat his laptop down and put his hands on her hips. He pulled her sweatpants and panties down. “I want to take this type of break.”
Lena moaned softly as he gently kissed the lips between her thighs. “That sounds nice.”
Rod helped her step out of her clothes. Lena got on her knees on the couch and bent over the back. He turned around, parted her cheeks, and buried his face in. Lena squealed. Rod nibbled, licked, and sucked until she squirted in his mouth. Then he held onto her thighs and devoured her. Lena went hoarse crying out. When he finished, her legs felt like gelatin. Rod got up and went to the bathroom. He came back wiping his face with one cloth and had another one to wipe Lena down. Then he helped her put her panties and pants back on.
“I feel good about that break.” Rod handed her her laptop.
Lena hit him with a pillow. “You’re exactly as I thought you would be.”
“So you thought about me before.”
Rod grinned and then sat back on the floor. He picked up his laptop. “We’ll discuss that later. Now back to work.”
Lena felt like she was in heaven. She sighed deeply and then went back to reviewing reports. She knew the feeling wasn’t going to last forever but she decided to have the good sense to enjoy it while it was there.
