They had spoken on the phone as soon as the plane landed, and
he knew that she was waiting for him at the beach. His mind
unwittingly went to their last encounter on that beach and his lips curled up into a mischievous smile.

He pulled into the garage and jumped out of the car anxiously. He went through the house with his immortal speed, and now he
stood at the edge of the garden gazing down at the shore. He scanned the area, and his eyes found her lying on a beach towel,
soaking in the sun’s warmth. He descended the wooden steps to the ocean, and taking his shoes off, he smiled wide as soon as he felt the cool sand between his toes.

Several people walked along picking up shells, and others were
just sitting or sunbathing enjoying the day. He strolled slowly
toward her, and reaching her side, he looked down at her. The sun reflected off her beautiful alabaster face, leaving him breathless.

Her eyes were closed, a small iPod on the beach towel, earbuds plugged into her ears. She was listening to a beautiful slow song, and she looked peaceful. His gaze roamed her face carefully and
moved down to the white column of her long neck, over the mounds of her breasts, her tiny waist, down across her flat stomach, her curvy hips, and finally over her long beautiful legs. His mouth went dry at the sight of her beautiful body, barely covered by a tiny, white bikini.

He dropped to his knees, and placing his hands on either side of her body, he bent down and pressed his lips against her sensuous mouth. She tensed for a short second, but the familiarity of the kiss made her heart pick up speed, and she lost herself in a great passion
that took her breath away. He traced her bottom lip with the tip of his tongue, and she parted her lips, giving him access to the
sweetness of her mouth. He deepened the kiss, filled with eagerness and desire. Sebastian moaned blissfully, finally pulling back to glance down into a bluer than blue scorching gaze, a face that reflected clear hunger, and lips burning with lure. A smile tagged his lips, and he dove right back into that kiss with vaster need. He decided to take her home. He pulled back reluctantly, and sitting back on his heels, he watched
her carefully. Her eyes were closed, and a smile of contentment
painted
her face. Silence spread around him like the stormy rain on a dry
field,
He waited for a short moment and felt giddy at the sight of her.
Arielle
blinked, and opening her eyes slowly, she gazed into his flawless
face, and bit down onto her lip.

“Hey,” her voice coded with want. He reached out and pulled the earbuds out of her ears.

“Hey, baby,” he replied, running his finger across her lip line.
“What were you listening to?”

“Oh,” she giggled, “it’s just an audio book I bought yesterday.”

“Love story?” He was grinning, fully aware of her reply.

“Of course, what else?”

He arched an eyebrow amusingly, and his eyes flashed. “And the book is?”


East of the Sun
,” she replied evenly.

Pleasure washed over him. He gazed out toward the ocean in thought. His mind flipped through copious information, and finally
turning back, he gave her a thoughtful look. “I don’t think I’m
familiar with the book.”

“It’s not new, but it’s really good. A great love story,” she said passionately.

“Indeed!” he replied gently, and leaning back down, he pressed a kiss to her forehead. “I love you, baby.”

Arielle smiled wide, “I love you, too.”

“Did you miss me?” He angled into the question with extreme eagerness. He was surprised at the want in the tone of his voice.
Why am I so insecure? That’s not an immortal emotion. I shouldn’t feel that
way.”

“Yes,” she replied genuinely, but a bit startled with his question.
It wasn’t so much the question, but the way he asked it. “Do you
doubt that I missed you?” she asked, trying to suppress laughter.

“No,” he replied quickly through narrowed eyes, knowing that he got caught. She understood his insecurities, and she watched him closely. “I’m sorry, baby,” he muttered. “I just wanted to come home and be with you.”

She raised an eyebrow inquisitively, and taking a deep breath, she gave a tender smile. She sensed his uneasiness, but curiosity made her ask the next question. “Did something happen while you were away?”

“Why?”

“You sound different,” she said firmly.

He looked completely unnerved. “We don’t need to talk about
this anymore, Arielle, do we?”

She remained silent, gazing into his eyes in surprise. “No, we
don’t,” she muttered nonchalantly. She curled her fingers around the music player and rose to her feet slowly. Sebastian moved quickly,
and taking the beach towel, he gave it a hard shake. He threw the towel over his
left hand, and turning around, he faced her, giving her a stern gaze.
He
moved closer. Cupping her chin with his right hand, he tipped her
head back, and his mouth came down on hers with unbelievable vigor.

“God!” Every time he took possession of her mouth she lost control of her senses. She melted against his hard body and
surrendered to an in-depth and fierce kiss. The pleasure was shattering, the spark grew
into an inferno in a matter of seconds, and her knees buckled.
Sebastian
felt her wobbling; he let go of her chin and wrapped his arm quickly around her waist, holding her steady against him. She sighed
contently, and he groaned, feeling every muscle in his body contract.

Even though he wanted to prolong the pleasure of the kiss, he
stopped and pulled his lips a hairpin away. “Let’s go home,” he
breathed against her lips. “I want you, but I don’t want to put us on display.” He gathered her in his arms and held her tightly, feeling the warmth of her body that made his blood rush wildly through his veins.

“I can’t sleep without you,” she murmured, resting her head on his shoulder. “I fell asleep at six o’clock this morning, and I’m dead
tired.”

“I’m sorry, love. It wasn’t easy for me, either.” He licked his lips,
trying to preserve the sweetness of her mouth on his just a little
longer, or at least until they got home. He smiled to himself.

“Did you finish your business in Brussels?” she asked quietly.

“Yes.” He was still smiling.

“Are you going away again?”

“No, not if I can help it,” he replied and gave her a soft squeeze. “I don’t want you to worry about that.”

“But I do.” Her voice was a soft whisper.

“I’m here right now.”

Arielle looked up and fixed her eyes on his beautiful face. The
corners of his mouth lifted into that amazing smile that made her heart skip a beat.

“You don’t know how happy I am to be home,” he muttered.

She snuggled even closer. “Why don’t you tell me?”

Sebastian grinned like a small child, his voice tantalizing. “I
would rather show you.”

“I think I would rather hear it right now,” she teased.

Sebastian couldn’t hold back laughter. “You’ll soon find out,” he
breathed against her ear, his voice a husky whisper. Their gaze
locked,
and Arielle’s breath held at her throat. The wolfish grin on
Sebastian’s
face made her stomach quiver, as if an army of butterflies surged through her body, and she felt suspended in time. She was lost in the passion that simmered out of his emerald eyes. She was delighted! And he was home!

He clasped her hand and thrill shot up his arm and slipped into his bones, leaving him breathless. He looked into those blue pools in her eyes and got lost. He shook his head and managed to say. “What are you doing to me?”

She looked up, a mirthful glint coating her eyes. “I have no idea
what you mean?” Suddenly, she giggled outright, and jerking her
hand away from his, she didn’t hesitate before running toward the house without as much as a glance back.

A shocked moment passed. Sebastian eyes opened wide and his brows arched as he watched for a short moment and then he smiled lustfully.
So she wants to play. Game on, Arielle…
