I ask for a disaronno and coke and as I take my glass from him I can feel someone watching me. I turn around very slowly and end up staring into the beautiful chocolate brown eyes of Mr Miserable. I hold my breath. He is so fucking hot. I can feel myself starting to blush. The two of us just stand there staring at each other and then I hear Caleb clearing his throat.
“Do you know Meg, Dillon?” I can hear the laughter in his voice as he is talking to him.
“Erm no, Caleb. You’ve not introduced us.” He says smiling at me. He hasn’t taken his eyes off me the whole time Caleb is talking to him.
I hold my free hand out for him to shake, but when he takes my hand I feel like I’ve been hit with a bolt of lightning. I jump and my glass falls out of my hand and smashes on the floor. It all happens in slow motion and I can see it falling. He can see it falling and then when it hits the floor everyone turns to look at us. I’m so embarrassed. “Oh my god I’m sorry, I don’t know what happened. God I’m such a klutz.” I bend down to pick up the pieces of glass.
“Are you ok? Did you cut yourself?” he says coming closer to me. He bends down so that he is at my height and he starts helping me to pick up the pieces.
“It’s fine. Don’t pick it up please. I can do it myself.” I feel like crying. How come I always make a fool of myself when I want to make a good impression?
He puts a hand on my arm, which makes me jump. “Stop Meg, please let me do it, I don’t want you to cut yourself. Please?”
I stop what I’m doing and look up at him. I can feel the heat of his hand on my arm, it’s making my heart beat faster. “Ok, but let me go and ask for a dustpan and broom or something” he nods and I stand up. Everyone has moved away and they are not staring anymore. All except for Caleb of course, who looks very smug.
I brush past him, walk up to the bar and explain what happened, someone comes out and starts to clear up the mess. Dillon is stood up when I walk back over to him but I can see red on his hands. “Oh my god Dillon you’ve cut yourself, are you ok? I feel so bad now.”
I really want to cry. Instead I walk up to him and take his hand. I can see the cut only looks small and before I know what I’m doing I take his cut finger into my mouth and suck hard. I remember doing that as a child to clean a cut and to stop the blood flowing, right?
I hear a moan and a snort at the same time and I’m drawn back to reality. I can’t believe I just did that. Dillon is looking at me with so much lust in his eyes, it must have been him that moaned and then I see Caleb with his hand over his mouth and I realise he must have snorted. I instantly drop his hand and I can feel the redness as it slowly crawls up my face.
I am officially mortified. “I’m sorry. Really I’m sorry. I forgot myself there for a moment, I used to do that to myself or to my sister when we cut ourselves. I’m sorry Dillon.” I look at the floor because I can’t look him in the eye.
“Baby you can do that to me anytime” Dillon laughs. “Thank you, I know you were only trying to help, my finger is fine, it won’t fall off.” He moves closer to me and takes me into a hug because he can see I’m so embarrassed. As his head is close to my ear I can feel his five o’clock shadow rubbing against my face, that and the heat from his body against mine is making me wet between my legs. Then he whispers in his deep gravelly voice “I wish it was somewhere else I’d cut” and then he pulls me closer and groans.
About The Author
I am a mother to two young children, who in turn keep me young. I live in Dublin, Ireland but, I’m originally from South Devon in the UK. I work full time in a pharmacy and write in all my spare time: in my lunch hour, when watching TV at night and anywhere. I have always been interested in reading from a young age and then 2 years ago I was given a kindle as a present and it was the best thing that happened to me. I was able to read lots of books ever week and then I started to write reviews for all the books I read. I took this one step further and started my own facebook page – Sparkling Pink Bookshelf. I intended to upload all of my reviews for the books I read. This was purely for pleasure and then I answered a post on Facebook for someone to read for reviews and thought I had died and gone to heaven. I was reading about 7/8 books a week, the kindle made this achievable. I would read at any opportunity I could, even staying up til the small hours to finish a book. I loved it. Then one day I was asked to beta read a book – I loved this side of it, it was so exciting. I have worked with a number of indie authors and have remained loyal to a few select authors and I beta read all their After a year or more of doing this, I thought maybe I could write some of the stories that were in my head and I just decided to write and see what happened. I wrote about 70% of a story and then saw a post for the NaNoWriMo competition – to write 50,000 words in 30 days, I decided that this was a challenge I wanted to take and the Til Death Us Do Part series was born.
I am always thinking of situations that can be turned into a story and have started a few stories, which in turn will be completed and released to my readers. I love to hear what my readers have to say about my work and please find my links below.
Thank you for your support and I hope you enjoy this series of books as much as I enjoyed writing them.
