Instant Heat Part 2

Ever had a blind date that didn't turn out as you expected? That's what happens to Alyson when her friends set her up on a date. Who knew it would turn out even better than she thought?

            Alyson had to fight the urge to fidget as the car continued on its seemingly endless drive. Drake had coolly stated that he would have someone bring her car to their location before settling her in his own vehicle. She had been surprised when he had tied a blindfold around her, preventing her from seeing where they were going.

            “It’s not much further now,” Drake’s voice poured out from the darkness surrounding her, setting her nerves on fire as if he had physically touched her. She gave up and squirmed in the seat, his knowing chuckle drawing a soft hiss from her.

            “I hope this is going to be worth it,” she growled as she settled back in her seat. She yelped as she felt a hand settle down on her thigh, a finger smoothly stroking along the flesh bared as her short skirt had ridden up higher on her legs.

            “Trust me Alyson you will have no complaints,” he purred. She felt her breathing quicken as the car turned, her senses heightened by the blindfold. Her skin seemed to be extra sensitive to his touch, the blindfold making for an interesting experience. She had no way of knowing just how far he was willing to go in the car and the anticipation only made the thrill of being with an unknown and possibly dangerous stranger that much keener.

            “How…how much further is it?” she murmured, the feeling of his hand slowly sliding higher thoroughly distracting her from the fact that she had absolutely no idea where she was. Drake chuckled as his hand came to rest at the juncture where her leg and hip met, his fingers curling around her thigh slightly.

            “We’re here,” he said and Alyson said nothing, the anticipation robbing her of all speech. She was disappointed when his hand left her leg, reaching up to untie the blindfold as she felt the car come to a stop and shut off. Immediately her hand was gently grabbed as his voice made a soft tsking sound.

            “You don’t want to spoil the surprise now do you?” he asked as he brushed his lips against her knuckles, the sensation sending a shiver down the young woman’s spine.

            “No…I guess not,” she replied breathlessly. She felt his wicked smile against her knuckles before he released her hand and exited the car. A few seconds later her door was opened and he was helping her out of the low sitting sports car.

            “Don’t let me fall,” she said dryly as he tucked her hand into the crook of his elbow and began to lead her forward. Drake’s laughter was soft and she shivered at the sound. There was something so darkly sensual and even slightly sinister in it that she wasn’t sure whether to be nervous or even more curious than she already was.

            “If I’d known we were going hiking I would have worn different shoes,” she quipped as one of her heels got caught on a rock and she stumbled. Drake said nothing and before she knew it he had swept her up into his arms, drawing a startled yelp from her.

            “Next time I’ll warn you,” he said and she could hear the smirk in his voice. Deciding that there was nothing else to be said, she curled up against his chest, feeling her body tingle as the warmth of his body penetrated through the thin layers of the clothing she was wearing.

            His steps were steady and sure as they crunched over the rock strewn ground until finally he reached the grass. Once there he set her down, allowing her body to slide slowly against his as he did so and drawing a soft gasp from her.

            “Not much farther,” he murmured into her ear and he was pleased by the small shiver he drew from her. Alyson said nothing as he led her over the ground. She heard the sound of a waterfall roaring nearby and wondered just where he had taken her, feeling suddenly uneasy.

            “Do you trust me?” he asked suddenly, as if sensing her thoughts. Alyson hesitated before answering.

            “I do,” she replied, finding to her surprise that she actually did. Was it the lust she felt that was giving her that feeling of trust or was there more to it?

            “We’re here,” Drake said softly as he led her into a cool moist opening. He continued to lead her forward, not allowing her to remove her blindfold just yet, until they came to rest in a large and rather warm stone chamber. He removed her blindfold and Alyson blinked in the suddenly bright light as her eyes struggled to adjust. After a moment she was able to gaze around and her eyes widened as she realized that she was in a large furnished cave of some sort. She turned to him quickly and was surprised by the intensity of his gaze as he watched her.

            “Welcome to my hideaway,” he growled. Alyson blinked and for the first time wondered just exactly what she had gotten herself into. As she gazed into his smoldering eyes though she found that she didn’t really care. As long as she got to feel his body against hers nothing else mattered.

            Drake watched her carefully, fully prepared to subdue her should she try to run. It was rare for him to bring any of his conquests here. This was his place of sanctuary, his place to escape the daily routines and stresses of his life as a leader. He still wasn’t sure why he had. All he knew was that his instincts were now telling him to claim her in the most primitive way that a male could.

            Alyson felt herself blushing underneath his intense scrutiny. She quickly glanced around, her eyes coming to rest on the elaborate bed that seemed so out of place in this environment and she shivered. How many women had he brought here to necessitate a bed? Ignoring the unfamiliar pang of jealousy at that thought she licked her lips and returned her gaze to his and gave him a slow sultry smile.

            “Well then…since you brought me all this way shouldn’t we begin our dessert?” she said. Drake’s eyes flashed as a dark sensual smirk appeared on his face.

            “As you wish,” he growled before pulling her to him. As he claimed her lips in a hard and passionate kiss Alyson realized that she would not walk away from this encounter unscathed. As the kiss heated up she found that she didn’t care. The only thing that mattered was the present moment. Everything else could be addressed at a later time.
