Jack and Kate struggle to navigate through the web of lies surrounding them. Chasing shadows, the truth is closer than they realize. Isolated and hiding from unknown forces, can they uncover the buried secrets that killed Mike, and put a price of their heads? When Kate makes a deal, and leaves Jack behind, will she make it back, or will one misstep destroy all of their hopes for the future?
Speechless, Jack watched her turn away, and flee to the back porch. He stood staring, her words piercing him like a molten blade. He wanted to back her up, be the man. He didn’t care what happened to him, and when she said she didn’t want him to go he assumed it was because he was a hindrance. It was completely beyond him that she didn’t see him that way at all. Her decision was defensive.
She was protecting him, to protect herself.
Her decision of not allowing him to go with her had nothing to do with him and everything to do with her fear of losing him.
Jack’s stomach dropped and he felt like an idiot.
Taking a breath, he reigned in his guilt and self-induced frustration, before moving to the back door. Stepping out the cool lake air hit him and a chill ran up his spine. He breathed it in seeing her stare out at the water. “It’s cold out here.”
“I’m not changing my mind, Jack.”
“I know.” Jack caught her shining eyes in the moonlight.
Her gaze was open and trusting of him. There was nothing hidden, just her, and his heart stopped in devotion. He caressed her cheek, wiping away the tear that slid across it. Jack encompassed her within his arms before caressing her lips with a loving tender kiss. He pressed his forehead to hers and she closed her eyes against him. “If you say I need to stay here, than that is what I need to do. You go do what needs to be done and I will be here when you get back.”
“I just want to love you, Katie. That’s all I’ve ever wanted.”
Her emerald eyes opened looked up at him in complete love and hope. He brushed her lips again, and she melted into him. The cold around them disappeared. He wanted to stop the moment in time and keep it forever. After losing themselves in each other they took a breath. His arms held her tightly against him, and a grin spread across his face. “It’s really cold out here.”
She hugged him a little tighter. “Oh it’s not that bad.”
“My nose is frozen.” She laughed and he released her before taking her hand leading her back into the house. “Time to go inside.”
He led her back inside and she ventured into the kitchen starting a pot of coffee. Jack loaded some logs into the fireplace and Kate appeared next to him with a cup of coffee. Jack took it, and put it on the table. Then he took hers and did the same. She smirked at him before he pulled her down against him.
He claimed her lips and didn’t let go. Her softness against him was intoxicating. His body burned and her passionate kisses fueled the fire. He tugged on her shirt before raising it over her head. She unbuttoned his shirt and he nibbled on her neck. He lifted his torso upright, her legs wrapping around his waist. She pushed the shirt off his shoulders. He shrugged it away, his hands lining her spine. He undid the clasp of her bra sliding the straps down her arms. He dropped it on the floor, the sight of her beautiful body taking his breath away.
Her nails curled into his hair and he lined her collar bone with soft kisses. His mouth led a trail down to her sternum before he pushed a heat breath across her nipple. He kissed the delicate bud before swirling his tongue over the tip. Her head fell back with a moan and his arms braced her back.
He sucked her nipple between his lips, nipping gently with his teeth. Her hips ground against him and he increased the suction. She cried out and gasped. He released the inflamed bundle from his mouth. His palm rolled against the now overly sensitive breast. His mouth latched onto the neglected nipple, while his hand continued to tease.
Jack shifted, tucking her beneath him. She arched her back and he unbuttoned her jeans. His mouth left her breast, kissing his way down her body he nibbled on her hip before tugging her jeans off her legs. His dick rubbed against his jeans and he gulped back the need to be within her body. The anticipation was likely going to kill him. He pulled her to the edge of the couch, her dewy pussy making his mouth water.
He licked her lips before dipping his tongue into her, she growled lifting her hips. He gently placed his hand on her mound, pressing her back onto the couch. He explored her pussy with his tongue until she was almost crying.
In a swift move, his finger slipped into her pussy and his mouth covered her clit. A few flicks of his tongue, he curled his finger against her G-Spot and she exploded.
Jack brought her down, made his way back to her beautiful eyes, and captured her small whimpers against his mouth. Her hands freed his aching cock. He rose, discarding his jeans and boxers. She moved while he wasn’t looking. Her lips wrapped around the head of his cock and he thought he was going to explode. Her hand stroked him while her mouth teased. She must have known he was close. She held his base, and gave his cock a final wet kiss. He devoured her mouth, guiding her to the arm of the couch. He propped her up, her legs wrapping around his hips. He knelt on the couch teasing her clit with the tip of his cock. She squirmed, her breath coming in heavy gasps.
She wrapped her arm around his neck. “Jack, please…I want you inside me.”
“You want me to fill you up?”
“Oh God, yes.”
He dominated her mouth, his fingers digging into her hips. She tilted her pelvis and he pushed into her warmth. He groaned and she whimpered at the union. She used her grip on his neck as leverage to move her pelvis against his cock.
It felt incredible, and his entire body shivered in rising pressure. “Jesus, Kate.”
His hands rested on the arm of the couch, he shifted his weight and took back control. His hips moved, his cock filling her completely. Her head fell back, her back arched and he pulled back and then pushed in again. His cock stroked her pussy as it gripped him. Each movement within her body brought him closer to heaven. “Harder, Jack, fuck me…”
Her call sent a thrill up his spine and his movement became longer and harder, he filled her again and again without restraint. Her pussy tightened around him and she screamed in ecstasy. The pressure in his cock reached its peak. She pulsed around him and he exploded.
Coming down from the euphoria he pulled her close, and her arms wrapped around his neck. He lay back into the couch, her head on his chest as they both caught their breath. He felt her shiver and pulled the blanket from the back of the couch. Jack shifted onto his side, facing her and the back of the couch. Her head on his arm she looked at him with a grin. He traced the line of her hair and her grin turned into a bright smile.
“I love it when you smile.”
“I love it when you touch me.”
“Well that’s good because it happens to be one of my favorite things to do.”
“I love you, Jack.”
He lined her cheek with his thumb, pressing a gentle kiss on her pink lips. “I love you too, Katie.”
They kissed and caressed, relaxing into the couch. Eventually her eyes closed in exhaustion. Her warmth against him, he reveled in the softness of her skin. She laid still, her beautiful, fragile, body curled against him. His heart raced when his thoughts drifted to what was ahead of them. Of all they had to lose. He desperately wanted to shield her from it but knew he couldn’t. He trusted her to do the right thing and come back to him. Jack did his best to let it go and savor her in his arms. He pushed the outside world away and continued to stroke her hair until he eventually drifted off.
