Amorous Excerpt #2
This one features Jaycee and Bud from DIFFERENT ROADS, so be prepared for some steam!
The middle-aged secretary who worked for Bud, Mack, and Luke told Jaycee that Bud was on the phone with one of the mill managers, but she could wait on the couch in his office for him to finish the call.
Jaycee had worn a short denim skirt with a sleeveless blouse, and Bud leaned over in his chair in an exaggerated effort to look at her legs while he listened to the man on the phone. The door was open, but no one could see Jaycee from outside the office, so she slid her skirt a little higher on her thigh and gave him a suggestive look.
“No problem, Phil,” Bud said into the phone. “I’ll be there in the morning with two more terminals and have them up and running by noon. See you then.” He hung up and started around the desk toward Jaycee just as a young blonde woman in a short red dress came through the doorway.
“I brought you some coffee, Mr. Stanton,” she said. “Extra cream and sugar, just the way you like it.”
Bud stopped and glanced at Jaycee. “Uh . . . thank you, Bridget. My wife’s here right now. Want some coffee, Jaycee?”
Bridget froze when she saw Jaycee on the couch, and a little coffee sloshed out of the cup.
Jaycee folded her arms across her chest. “No, and since when do you drink it, Bud?”
“I drink it now and then,” he said. “Just put it on the desk, Bridget. Thanks.”
She set it on a coaster. “I’ll come back for the cup when you’re finished, Mr. Stanton.”
“Don’t bother,” Jaycee said. “And close the door on your way out.”
Bridget left without another word.
“That’s not my fault, Jaycee,” Bud said when she was gone. “I’ve never asked her to bring me anything.”
“Uh-huh, and you obviously haven’t spread the word that your wife won’t hesitate to kick somebody’s over-ambitious little ass either, so maybe that’s what I need to do.”
He walked over to the couch and sat beside her. “Come on, Jaycee. All she does is bring me coffee sometimes. I’m sure she does the same thing for Dad and Luke.”
She pushed away his hand when he tried to hold hers. “I don’t give a shit what she brings them. You’d better tell her that I’ll make her spill more than coffee if I catch her offering you anything else. I’ll fix you a frigging thermos if you like coffee so damn much, and what the hell are you smiling about?”
He answered in a singsong voice: “Jay-cee is jeal-ous. You’re afraid somebody’s gonna steal your Sugar Daddy, huh?”
She threw a punch at his arm, but he caught her hand and pushed her back on the couch to lie on top of her. “Get off me, shithead! I’m sure as hell not jealous of a little twit like her, but if you think you want somebody else then you can just—”
He covered her mouth with his and forced his tongue inside. Jaycee was a stronger-than-average girl, but there was really no comparison of her strength to Bud’s. She gave up struggling after a minute or so.
“I hate you,” she said when he let her speak. “Your little office fan club can have you. All I care about is Junior anyway.”
He laughed and kissed her neck with her hands still pinned to the couch. “Don’t worry, Firecracker. Junior doesn’t like anybody but you.”
She gave him a sly look. “Let go of my hands and I’ll say hello to him.”
“Uh-uh, I don’t trust you. You’ll punch me.”
“No I won’t, Bud. I promise.” She pressed her hips upward and moved against him. “I like it when you act all tough like this. You caveman, me woman. It’s making me so hot.”
He narrowed his eyes suspiciously. “For real?”
She smiled and nodded. He hesitated a couple of seconds more and slowly released her right hand, still holding her left above her head and watching her closely. She put her hand on his cheek and slid it down his neck. Just as it reached his chest and he shifted his weight so she could get her hand between them, she pinched his nipple between her thumb and forefinger and twisted.
“Ow, shit.” He grabbed her hand and pinned it again. “You lied to me, Jaycee!”
“No, I promised I wouldn’t punch you. Now get off me.”
He kissed her again until she returned it.
“Still hate me?”
“More than ever.”
“If I make love to you right here and shock the employees by making you moan with ecstasy, will you like me again?”
He got up and went to his desk to press the intercom button on his phone. “Mrs. Patterson, hold all my calls until further notice. I’ll be in conference with my wife until she likes me again.”
Jaycee laughed. “But your coffee will get cold, Mr. Stanton.”
He came back to the couch and started to unbutton her blouse. “I just thought of a new game for us to play, and I want you to call me Mr. Stanton while we play it.”
When Jaycee left, she stopped by Bridget’s desk in the clerical office next door and set the empty coffee cup in front of her.
“I’m afraid Mr. Stanton’s coffee got spilled while we were . . . working on his desk, so I brought you the cup to get him some more. But, if I were you”—she leaned toward her conspiratorially but didn’t lower her voice—“I’d focus my efforts on one of the single Stanton men. Not only is Bud a waste of your time because he’s not interested, he’s got a wife who’s been known to cold-cock women over a lot less than your pathetic attempts at getting him to look at your ass. You might want to write that on a sticky note and keep it on your monitor so you won’t forget.”
Jaycee waved congenially to all the open-mouthed women in the room as she left.
