Turning my body towards her, I lifted her hand to my lips and kissed it.
Maddie sunk back in the seat and her legs spread a fraction as I looked at her. The angry mask she’d worn since I saw her again at the coffee shop turned soft and a feminine appearance returned to it once more. Sensing the change, I continued to move close to her. I moved my hand between her knees and locked my arm in place as I braced myself along the edge of the seat.
Maddie’s head fell back, and I watched her sadness transformed in front of my eyes. Her lips drifted apart, inviting me to press mine against them. It seemed as if it had been years since the last time they’d met and I wasn’t about to waste another goddamn instant. I lunged towards her and pressed my lips hard against Maddie’s, pinning her in place.
She moaned as she reciprocated my advance, twisting her head from one side to the other as passion engulfed us. She tasted so sweet and I intended to get my fill. As we kissed, electric shocks pulsed through me as our hands began to wander and explore each other. After several more seconds of our embrace, she broke her lips free of mine for a moment.
“My parents…” she puffed.
“Mmm, hmm,” I muttered, as I kissed and licked her neck along the space between her ear and her shoulder. “What about ‘‘em?”
“Well…” she gasped, as she glanced out the window for an instant to get her bearings. “We’re gonna be there. Soon. And…”
“Okay,” I muttered, as I slid my left hand between her legs, hooking her thong underneath her uniform in the process. I tugged it aside with a forceful jerk and exposed her.
With a deep inhale, she rolled her head away from the window in my direction and crashed into me with a gentle nudge. As she did, I slid the first two fingers of my hand within her and positioned my thumb on top of her clit. With a firm, come hither motion, I dragged my fingers inside of her while I swirled her swollen bud at the same time.
“Then you better hurry up,” I replied. “Right?”
Maddie inhaled and sucked in a great gasp of air. As she did, a high pitched moan accompanied it.
“Right?” I said, as I pressed my lips against hers once more.
Maddie groaned as her thighs spread further apart, allowing me easier access. Lifting her arms up, she draped them over my shoulders and hooked her hands together behind my head. As the limousine bumped along the country road, she began to slide her hips back and forth against my fingers.
My cock raged. It pressed against the fabric of my pants, eager to get loose and have its way with her. Just then, Maddie released her grip and her hand fell… straight to my crotch.
“I want you,” she whispered.
Her fingers dragged across the tented fabric of my slacks causing my dick to pulse with need. Her touch stoked my desire and I pressed my lips hard into hers again. Our tongues flicked and danced in each other’s mouths as the moments passed.
I sensed Maddie’s release approach with each successive stroke inside her. I massaged her clit with ever increasing pressure, bringing her closer to the edge. Just then, Maddie reached for my belt and tried to undo it, but I snatched her wrist and held it firm.
“No,” I began, as I broke from her lips. Looking into her eyes, I continued, “This is for you, Maddie.”
Her eyes fluttered closed as her head drifted back until it pressed into the leather headrest. Maddie’s hips gyrated with a wild cadence as I continued to stimulate her clit. As we kissed, she lifted her arms up and after pressing her palm flat against the car window, she grabbed hold of my shoulder with her other hand. Her nails curled inward, digging into the muscles of my upper back when she broke free from me and let loose with a deep groan. At that instant, her entire body began to pulse, rocking back and forth as she kept time with my strokes inside her.
“Uh huh, uh huh, uh huh…” she chanted.
I felt a smile creep to the edge of my mouth as her climax approached.
“Cum Maddie. Cum now.”
“Uh huh, uh huh, uhhhh huuhhhh!!” she cried out.
At the last instant, she pressed her mouth against my mine and bit my lower lip as her orgasm crashed into her body. Maddie groped and slapped at everything she could get her hands on as the peak of bliss washed over her. After several seconds, the severity of her gyrations began to subside until at last she slumped back into the car seat, spent. As she did, Maddie grabbed the lapel of my coat and tugged me in her direction. We kissed for several seconds and then I returned to a seated position next to her.
In my peripheral vision, I could see her attempting to recover. Her chest rose and fell with large swells at first. As the seconds ticked by, the gaps between breaths lengthened and the size of them lessened, until at last, she spoke.
“How… did you find me?”
“Well, in case you decide to run again, I don’t want you knowing all my secrets. Do I?”
Maddie and I returned to LA and for at least two days straight, we never left the bedroom.
Hell, it was the same way I’d miss oxygen if I was underwater for more than thirty seconds. Funny how you don’t even realize stuff like that until you don’t need it, and worse, can’t get it.
I didn’t get to meet her folks. We never made it to their house. She didn’t want to talk about it and I didn’t want to force the issue. Even so, it wasn’t hard to tell she felt bad about leaving without telling them anything. That said, it was for the best. Any goddamn meet and greet would have only led to a bunch of questions about the two of us. And if Maddie’s fragile mental state was any indication, she wouldn’t have liked any answer I’d have given.
Almost as soon though, things went back to normal because I was back in Chicago most of the time while she resumed life in Los Angeles.
For her part, Maddie was back at the office, trying to regain everyone’s confidence after taking off like she did. I talked to her about it. I know it wasn’t easy to face her employees, but it could have been much worse. Hell, if it hadn’t been for me stepping in and keeping things going while she was gone, I’m pretty sure the whole damn thing would have imploded. Even so, I never spoke poorly of her to any of the staff, which helped, I’m sure.
While she limped along, I managed to get out to the coast every couple of weeks, which seemed to keep things smooth between us.
Because I’ll tell ya, the discussion we had in the limo that day didn’t sit right with me. Not in the least. And as the weeks wore on, I suspected my apology, though sincere, would only get me so far with Maddie.
Turns out I was right and man, she couldn’t have picked a worse time to bring it up.
It had been a bear of a week. Just one of those where nothing comes easy. By my count, we had no fewer than fifty-four lawsuits going across all my businesses right now, all of them utter shit. But there’s not a goddamn thing you can do about them most of the time. Nine times out of ten, we wind up settling just so we don’t spend almost the same amount with our lawyers.
So at about five minutes ‘til seven in the evening, I took a swig of three hour old coffee and as the bitter liquid rolled around in my mouth, my office phone rang. I glanced down as Maddie’s cell number flashed on the display.
I put my cup down on the desk and picked it up. “Hello?”
She fell silent right away. I could hardly hear her breathe.
“Something the matter?” I asked.
“I don’t know,” she began with a sigh. “No, I guess.”
“What’s wrong? Something happen at the office?”
“No. It’s nothing like that. Everything is fine here. It’s just…I don’t know. I’ve been thinking a lot.”
I leaned back in my chair and rubbed my neck with my hand. “About what?”
“Us?” she said. Her voice had a rising tone to it as if I should have been doing the same.
“Us?” I parroted. “You’re, um, gonna have to give me more than that, Maddie.”
“Well, I mean, don’t you ever think about me? Miss me?”
I swallowed at the question, since it really wasn’t about that at all. Hoping I’d be able to slide past it, I replied, “Yes. Of course. What makes you think I don’t?”
“It’s just that after what you told me in the limo. How we should start over? It feels like we never did. Everything seems like it is exactly the same between us. When you apologized, I thought you meant you wanted more… you know, between us.”
I shook my head in disbelief. Leaning forward, I rubbed my forehead with my left hand as I searched for the right thing to say.
“Maddie, I apologized to you because you deserved an apology from me,” I said as I exhaled. “There’s nothing more to it. I wasn’t trying to ‘communicate’ anything to you. Trust me, when I have something to tell you, you will know it.”
I bit my lip as I finished. There was no doubt, zero, about what the next words out of her mouth were going to be. And so, I decided to just put it out there because unless I did, I already had enough experience with these situations to know better. I had to tell her because she just wasn’t getting it.
