She steps away and drops her head to her chin as she slowly begins to unzip her jacket. I exhale a breath when I see what she's wearing underneath. She drops the jacket to the floor and then slides off her pants and kicks them to the side.
"You didn't forget," I respond in a low groan. My eyes hover suggestively over her wonderful body. My cock strains against the fabric of my boxers. She raises her eyes to reply, but I don't give her a chance. I slam my lips over hers and lift her as she wraps her legs around my waist.
"Do you like it?" she murmurs over my mouth.
"Oh baby, I fucking love red on you," I rasp, nipping at her neck. I trip over my feet trying to get her to my bed as fast as possible. I feel her heat and her delicious breath on my neck as she kisses me with her open mouth. I lay her down on top of my bed without losing contact with her. I can't. I don't want to. I lean over to meet her eyes before I slide my hand up her flat stomach to her perfect breasts hidden under the red bra. I smile, feeling her soft skin under my starved hands. I run my tongue along her stomach and over the swell of her breasts.
Tasting and feeling her again, having her underneath me, next to me and under me is intoxicating. She's my addiction, my drug. I fucking crave her. I can't see straight. I can't think straight. I can’t wait any longer to taste her lips again, so I lean down and kiss her, savor her, memorize her. I want to take things slow, but my cock is telling me otherwise. I unclasp her bra and take a nipple into my mouth and swirl my tongue around it. She releases a loud moan and fists my hair with both hands, which makes taking it slow insanely difficult. I trail my hand down her side, so I can feel more of her soft skin while my other hand caresses her breast. I move my lips to her other nipple and suck it into my mouth. She’s panting and grinding against my dick, pressing her hungry body against mine. I need to be inside her. Now.
“Fuck, I've missed you.” Those words don’t even come close to how I feel. I can't touch or kiss her enough. I’m nearly out of my mind. I continue to kiss her while my hand moves slowly from her breast to her panties. My lips leave hers so I can slide them off slowly and then I remove my boxers while I admire her lying on my bed. She's the most gorgeous sight I’ve ever seen. She’s vulnerable, strong and sexy as hell. She follows my every move with eyes filled with lust, hunger and fear. It's all for me. I will do everything in my power to take away the fear and replace it with something better. I will do everything in my power to do it.
