Secret Sins - KBTBB
“You’re so soft.”
Words like that made me weak, well – no, not exactly only words like that; but if for some reason an eloquently strung web of lies was ever to leave a man’s lips in a deep and somewhat honest tone – it would be hard for me not to believe them, even if the rest of the world was telling me not to.
These three words in particular caused a fuzzy, warm sensation to creep along my skin just as I wasn’t expecting a single thing. Shoes still off on the floor beside the bed and the skirt I’d just slipped into now pushed high up at my waist; it was a gentle kiss and the soft grip of large hands on my hips that caused my eyes to see and my head to fill with nothing but bright, shining stars.
As his lips skimmed lightly across my one; teasingly as he would, I without hesitation pushed my weight forward so that the kiss could deepen – a mouse like whimper escape my lips as our mouths began to shape shift, the affection growing deeper and deeper.
going to be late for work.”
“Now we couldn’t have that could we?”
The conversation was nothing short of the same repetitive nonsense we shared every morning that I woke up in bed beside him; yet it was a clandestine secret that was only and would only be kept between the two of us. The rest of the world was yet to have to know about our private lives and our friendship was far too old and trusted for a ‘behind closed door’ fling to ruin or break it. The romance had gone on for a little under 6 months and whilst involved – I wasn’t quite sure that either of us were in love.
A few more kisses strung one after the other and my fingers weaving through the short, slicked back lengths of his hair; I broke all contact, scampering off the bed to step into the heel I’d have to wear to work today. The same heels that had taken me from the office to the bar last night where we’d ‘accidently’ bumped into one another.
“We couldn’t. You know that as well as I do Soryu.”
“Will I see you tonight?”
My mumble of acknowledgement was cut short by another kiss as I finished doing up the tiny white buttons of my blouse and without a second thought – I brushed my hair up into a high bun whilst leaving the bedroom.
“Did you get laid this morning?”
“Eisuke we’re about to go into a business meeting what the fuck are you babbling on about?”
“Just tell me.”
“Tell you what?”
“Did you get laid this morning?”
Feeling a fluster of blush colour across my cheeks I dropped my head quickly; hair falling in front of my face to half conceal the tinge I wasn’t expecting to wearing as an accessory this morning and to advert my eyes from the smug; know it all look my friend was giving me, making me feel vulnerable, known, uncomfortable. Glancing up at the numbers on the inside door of the elevator, I let out a sharp, short exhale and sigh, thankful that we were at level 26 of 43 meaning that this conversation wouldn’t be continuing for much longer.
“Why would I be getting laid? Actually, don’t answer that –
you should be focusing on the meeting we’re about to step into.”
“Good – now I have all the contracts ready from owner occupancy down to access of the employee data base and everything in between. Heads up; you’ll have to make a darn good impression if you plan on buying this business at the rate you expect to be paying but I’m sure we’ll have a little leeway as long as you don’t open your mouth and say something ridiculously stupid or offensive. Mr Raynes is a bit of a hotel mogul in the US and if you’re planning on getting any kind of business off and from him you better be ready to act like an adult in a meeting for once and not expect me to step in and save you whenever you start to dig yourself a hole.”
“You talk way too
“That’s what the head of your legal team is meant to – mhmmmfff.”
Within seconds of starting what was to be my second; long triad style speech I felt my back pressed up against the corner of the lift; Eisuke’s fingers quick to push and hold the door close button so that we were disturbed after reaching the top floor all of an instant; his lips hot against my own – free hand, gently beneath my chin keeping me still, impassive and immobile.
For someone with a hot temper and overconfident persona which was all I’d even known of him during the last 14 years we’d been acquainted; the tender, light kiss that was confusing me; that was blowing my mind and causing my heart to race for a million and one different reasons seemed out of character.
“You’re cute when you blush”, he uttered beneath his breath; the fingers beneath my chin, grazing up to pinch gently at my bottom lip as he let go of the door close button. If it weren’t for the corner of the elevator I was propped up against, I was sure my knees would have caved in and I’d have collapsed onto the ground in a heap.
With no time to react or say a single thing; we were greeted by the hotel mogul himself who looked please to see the two of us – presumably more for the exchange of dollar signs rather than a casual chat or company. Straightening my back and adjusting my glasses; I felt a hot – thin sweat build up across my body like a sin.
I’d been sleeping with someone behind closed doors for months now – and kissed by his best friend who I knew would be after nothing more than a one off, raucous fling; yet after a single, sinful taste – I already knew that even though I’d be winding myself up a disgraceful mess of trouble – I couldn’t get enough of, or wait to try again.
