The next morning Jasline awoke disoriented. The lights on the Christmas tree lit the room with a warm glow, and for a moment she was experiencing the past, before her family had left her, when Christmas was a wonderful season. Then the rise and fall of the chest of the man snuggled in behind her brought reality back. She was lying on the couch with Davon Weider tucked in tight against her, one arm around her. Sometime while they slept, his hand had cupped her breast. Her heart rate ratcheted up a notch. Dang. That’s Davon Weider pressed so close to my… Something hard twitched against her backside. Her pulse drummed faster.
What should she do? By the sound of his breathing he was still asleep. Should she slip out of his grasp? Better yet, could she? Did she want to? Would it be wrong to enjoy the moment? How often would such an opportunity come her way? Never. But… She squirmed with indecision, and the hand on her breast squeezed. Frozen in place, she berated herself. His cock twitched, and a gravelly voice whispered in her ear, “Morning, grease monkey.”
“Umm.” She cleared her throat. “Morning.”
He lifted up on one arm and dragged her beneath him, wedging himself between her thighs. Without breaking eye contact, he caught a curl of her hair on his finger and played with it. “Merry Christmas.”
It was a wonder she managed a response. Her own “Merry Christmas” in response was more a breathless murmur. The ability to inhale and exhale had flown away like the down on a thistle. His gaze dropped to her lips, and with a clarity she’d seldom experienced, the knowledge he was going to kiss her flooded her mind and froze her in place. His mouth captured hers and all thoughts of what she should or shouldn’t do were drowned by the stimulation this man sparked in her with a simple kiss. And then it went beyond simple.
