And yet, it felt so much emptier now that it was just him...
Bleh... Love Day... A holiday made to make people like him miserable...
Tracy leaned over and rubbed his knee, wiggling her eyebrows. "You know what I want!" she said suggestively.
Ace grinned and leaned over to give her a sloppy kiss. "That part of the night comes later. Do you want a drink?"
Tracy winked. "Sure, something fruity!"
And then they'd run into Yvonne...
"That was a wonderful performance!" Yvonne said, putting her cell phone away. "It will definitely make the papers in the morning. You were sizzling!"
Ace grinned. "I love a good performance!" he said, reaching over to squeeze Tracy's hand.
Tracy squeezed it back and smiled brightly at Yvonne, "Well, it's getting late, we should probably be getting home now!"
Ace sighed. "Yeah, I guess Chase will be wondering where we are..."
Yvonne grinned, "Or," she said, holding up two tickets. "You can go enjoy a romantic Love Night at the Balmy Water Getaway, compliments of the agency, of course." Her smile oozed charm. "You could consider it a honeymoon of sorts!"
Ace grinned as he grabbed the tickets. "That sounds awesome, doesn't it Tracy?!" Ace said excitedly.
Tracy reluctantly agreed. It would be nice to get away with just Ace and herself for the night...
"Great! You lovebirds go have fun! I'll just drop in and let Chase know you'll be away on my way home."
"Awesome," Ace said as he grabbed Tracy's hand and tugged her away, but Tracy glanced back and saw the smug smile.
Yvonne waved back and said, "Don't worry! I'll take care of everything!"
Tracy frowned. That's what she was afraid of...
Yvonne knocked on the door the the Black residence and tapped her toe impatiently as she waited.
Chase felt awkward, worrying about what to say. "Um, my father's not here right now," he said quickly into the thick silence.
"Oh," he said, pretty sure he was blushing. "Well, would you like to come in and have some coffee?" he asked lamely. Wasn't that what you offered a guest that dropped by? Chase was so lacking in social skills that he wasn't quite sure what the appropriate gesture was. But, something made him want to please Ms. Flores...
He was pretty sure his face was flaming red with embarrassment right now.
But Yvonne was already shaking her head no, still smiling with those sexy, bright red lips.
Chase watched as Yvonne fixed her make-up in the bathroom mirror and smoothed her dress. He wished she didn't have to leave!
Seeing him watching her in the mirror, she winked. "I didn't take you for the kind of man to get a tattoo, sugar," she drawled. "You've been full of surprises tonight..."
Chase covered his tattoo self-consciously. "Yeah, well, I got it one crazy night..."
Crap. She was leaving, he thought, desperately searching for something to make her stay.
He reached for her hands and wound his fingers through hers. "This was... " he paused, searching for the right word... Unexpected, Amazing, Wild... "Absolutely Perfect! Stay with me tonight?" he asked hopefully.
Chase immediately had of vision of Yvonne and him naked in his little twin bed and he felt himself stirring under his boxers.
Yvonne smiled when she saw Chase's eagerness to try out his little twin bed. "Maybe next time I come over, you'll have claimed that nice, empty master bedroom upstairs as your own.” Leaning forward to stroke his face, she added, “That way next time, we can have even more privacy...”
Chase grinned widely. She said there was going to be a next time!
With that, she winked and slipped away from his embrace.
“Remember, gentlemen don't kiss and tell, sugar!” she said over her shoulder.
