She took one step into the other room and was snatched from behind. A hand covered her mouth and another circled her waist. 
“Don’t scream, lady.”
Heart beating wildly, she nodded.
“Come quietly?”
She nodded again.
He walked her into the bathroom and closed the door behind them.
When Doug released her, she whirled around and grinned. “That was a lie, you know. I don’t always come quietly.”
His eyes flashed and they laughed before they kissed. She pressed her tongue forward and he opened his mouth to accommodate it. Groaning, she tried to capture every taste and smell as a memory she could recall later.
Cupping her ass, he raised her up to sit on the edge of the vanity. She spread her legs and he pressed between them, both of them kissing and fondling everywhere they could reach.
When he drew back to breathe he murmured, “We can’t keep doing this.”
“Are you crazy? This is all we can do. I’ve made it my mission today to kiss you at every possible opportunity. You just beat me to it, is all.”
“Someone’s going to see us.”
Panting to catch her breath, she nodded. “We need to be careful with the children. Everyone else will understand.”
He nibbled her earlobe. “I’m not sure I understand. I’ve never felt this way Christi. My head tells me no, but my heart—and every other part of my god-damned body—says ‘full steam ahead’.”
She chuckled. “Me too. It’ll all be okay soon, I know it will. We just have to hang on for now.”
“If I hang on any tighter I’ll leave marks.”
Christine pulled back to look into his eyes. “I’m not complaining.”
He grinned. “My kind of woman.” His next kiss was tender and sweet, before he released her and slipped from the room.
She undressed quickly and turned the shower to cold.

Sunday Snippets ~ Pieces of the Past part 2

Christine followed Doug and the kids into the house. Sparsely furnished, it did seem to have the necessities and thankfully felt nice and cool. She noticed groceries on the kitchen counter and paused to glance in the sink. Spotless. A good start.

“Three bedrooms.” Doug gave them the tour, leading them past the living room down the hall. “Peyton, why don’t you take this first one? Ethan can sleep here.” He paused in front of the last door. “Christi, this is the master bedroom, I believe it has its own bath.” He opened the door and glanced inside. “Yep. This would be yours.”

She looked around nervously. The room appeared nice enough, and clean. The bathroom sparkled which made her feel slightly better. But something about the arrangement seemed off. She finally drew up the courage and asked Doug, “Are you, uh, staying?”

“Of course. I’ll ride the sofa.”

“You don’t have to do that. Peyton and I can share a room.” She felt guilty at the idea of him without a bed to sleep in.

Doug smiled. “Ah, well, I appreciate that. But I’m happiest out here where I have the best vantage point. Sofa suits me just fine. Really.”

“All right, then.” She hoisted her biggest bag onto the bed and gasped when he removed it, setting it on a nearby chair instead.

“This isn’t the Holiday Inn. I wouldn’t suggest unpacking any more than you absolutely have to. If we need to leave in a hurry, I want us to be able to do just that.”

Her heart pounded. Just when she was starting to feel better, his comment raised her hackles again. “That’s reassuring.” Not.

He glanced behind him, she assumed to make sure the kids were still in their rooms, before taking a step closer to her. So close, she caught a whiff of his sporty cologne. The tantalizing scent distracted her for a moment, until she shook her head to clear it.

“I told you I’d always be straight with you, Christi. I’m doing everything in my power to keep you and those kids safe. We’re going to be in close quarters and it won’t be a cakewalk. But if everyone cooperates, things will be just fine.”
