Seducing My Assistant Teaser
I stood there with my hardon and all I wanted to shout was “What the hell?” Hot damn! Why was it that when I always met a woman I liked she had issues? Major issues? Granted, I’d never cared before, but with Elizabeth it was different. Elizabeth was someone I wanted to get to know a lot more intimately and deeply. If I didn’t know better, I would think God was testing me and our relationship. Why was it that every time, Elizabeth and I were even close to a good space, something came up?
“Eliza, come out now.” Lacey, Elizabeth’s best friend banged on the door, her voice more insistent this time. I stared at Elizabeth and her face was a bright red as she avoided eye contact with me. “Shane is waiting.” I could feel my stomach clenching. Why was Shane here? From everything Elizabeth had told me, he was bad news. Granted she hadn’t told me much, but the mere fact that he’d cheated on her told me everything I needed to know. Real men did not cheat on their women. I would never cheat on my girlfriend. It just wasn’t something I could ever do. Growing up with two sisters and being especially close to my younger sister Liv, I knew just how much emotional damage cheating could do to a person. But, I also knew how unreasonable some women could be. I knew how many chances some women gave men that were not worth their time. Way too many chances. I stifled a sigh and tried not to let my face show my annoyance. I wanted to grab Elizabeth by the shoulders and shake her. She couldn’t seriously be considering giving this dick another chance? Could she? “What’s going on?” I said gruffly, my voice harsher than I had intended. Elizabeth looked at me with guilty eyes and I ran my thumb across her puffy pink lips. “Why is Shane here and what’s the surprise?” I said again, my eyes never leaving her face. I wanted to study her every expression and emotion. Elizabeth frustrated me so much. I just never knew what she was thinking. Women said men were hard to read, but I’m guessing they had never met themselves. They were so bloody confusing.
“Scott,” She said softly, her eyes looking worried. I didn’t say anything as I continued staring at her, but my eyes dropped slowly to her heaving chest. Her breasts looked perky and I wanted to reach over and squeeze them gently with my fingers. I wanted to distract her from whatever was going on on the other side of the door. I wanted her to take care of the hardness in my pants, but I didn’t act on those wants. I had a feeling she wouldn’t appreciate them.
“Yes.” I said and grabbed her hands. “I do.”
“You do what?” She frowned at me in confusion.
“I do want to go back to your bed so that you can take advantage of me and fuck my brains out.”
“Scott!” She said, her face reddening. “That wasn’t what I was about to say.”
“Pity.” I grinned and pulled her towards me. “There’s nothing else I want to hear right now.” I was postponing what I knew was inevitable. Elizabeth was going to walk out that door, see the ex that broke her heart and fall in love with him again. Heaven only knew what he’d brought with him. If it was an engagement ring, I’d hit him. I wasn’t a fighter, but I had a mean right hook from my days as a teenager wanting to be the second coming of Muhammad Ali. I wasn’t ever going to be heavyweight champion of the world, but I’d fight for my woman, if that was what I had to do.
“I’m going to see what’s going on.” Elizabeth said, her eyes looking worried as she put her hand on the door. “I won’t be long.”
“Yeah.” I said, my voice not hiding my disappointment. “Sure.”
She didn’t answer me and instead opened the door, poking her head out first as if she could see who was there and then come back in and close the door without them knowing.
“Shane,” she said softly as she walked out. I couldn’t tell if she sounded happy or not. I wished I could see her face to know what she was thinking. I’d be able to tell from the look in her eyes. I’d know if this Shane was still in her heart or not.
“Eliza.” He said, his voice deep. I walked to the door to catch a glimpse of the asshole who had ruined my evening. I stopped dead as I stared at him. It was Shane Devine, the pitcher for the local Baseball team. The team that I loved. The team that had gone to the MLB World Series Championships just two years ago. Why hadn’t Elizabeth told me that she’d dated Shane Devine? All of a sudden I didn’t feel so confident. I mean, up against a regular guy, I felt like I had a decent shot. Up against a top Baseball player, who was undoubtedly handsome, rich, and charismatic, well that made my chances a little harder.
“Eliza, you’re looking good.” He said, his blue eyes crinkling as he gazed at her. His hair was short, in a buzzcut, and his skin was a deep tan, from his days running around in the sun. I frowned as I stared at him. Shane Devine was a good looking man. A very good looking man. The sort of man that I knew girls went gaga after.
“Thanks.” She said and then she looked back at me, her eyes looking slightly worried.
“Eliza, you need to see who’s here.” Lacey’s eyes were wide and she grabbed her friend’s arm and pulled. I stood there feeling left out. I was the odd man out here. It was obvious to me, I didn’t even call her by the right name. I called her Elizabeth and it was obvious to me that everyone in the “in” crowd called her Eliza. To the people she loved she was Eliza. She’d never offered me to call her that.
“Who’s here?” She said weakly and then I heard a small squeak. “Oh my God.” She said and I walked out of the bedroom, determined to see who or what Shane had brought with him.
“I told you that I’d do this for you. That I’d move heaven or hell for you to get you answer.” Shane’s voice was emotional and I frowned. He was sure laying it on strong. What was he hoping for? Well, I knew what he was hoping for and I wanted to punch him for it.
“That’s the problem, Shane. I didn’t want you to visit hell for my answer.” Elizabeth’s voice was tight and I looked at her face first as I walked out to join them. Then I looked to the right to see who Shane had brought with him. My heart stopped as I looked at Elizabeth, Shane, and the new guest, trying to figure out if what I thought was true was correct.
“Eliza,” Shane said softly as he stepped forward to take her hand. “That was as much your fault as it was mine.”
“No,” She shook her head, her eyes filling with tears. “I didn’t want that to happen.”
“Eliza.” Shane’s voice broke. “I made a mistake. I’m sorry.”
“What about me?” Shane’s guest spoke up. “Did either of you think about me and my life when you made that choice?”
“What’s going on?” I asked Elizabeth, my heart thudding. I was confused. What choice had they made? What was I missing?
“Who are you?” Shane asked, his blue eyes glaring at me as he acknowledged me for the first time.
“I’m Elizabeth’s boss and boyfriend.” I said confidently.
“Scott.” Elizabeth looked at me, her eyes wide and confused. “Please not now.”
“Not now what?” I said, feeling angry. Didn’t she want to be my girlfriend?
“Don’t complicate things.” She shook her head. “This isn’t—”
“So what do you think of your present?” Lacey cut in, her brown eyes looking round and shocked and I could see her brain whirling, most probably trying to save the ideas for the book she was writing. Though, I wasn’t sure that this was something she’d want to include.
“Yes, Eliza.” Shane said. “What do you think of my surprise?”
“I, I,” Elizabeth shook her head and bit her lower lip as she turned toward the new guest. “I think I want to say I’m sorry.”
I frowned then, my brain sprinting a million miles a minute. What was she saying sorry for? What was going on and why did I feel like this was just the tip of the iceberg of confusion that was about to enter my life?
