Love scenes… who doesn’t love them?
I thought long and hard about the scene to share with you this week and I kept going back to the love story of Asher Cane and Mia Lavender. My SRE series has grown from the introductory short story, The Satin Rose Experience, in Evernight’s Keyboards & Kink anthology to four novellas, each with different main characters. However, one thing remains constant throughout the series, Asher and Mia’s love for each other.
Asher is full of surprises and he has a huge one waiting for Mia. Read on…
“Hey beautiful, you ready to go?”
Mia glanced past her computer monitor to Asher, leaning against her door with his arms folded, impeccably dressed in a dark suit. The sight of him still made her breath hitch. Almost one year had passed since she took the job as VP of Client Experience and more importantly, Asher’s sub in training.
“A little early for lunch, isn’t it?” she asked, tapping her wristwatch.
“Who said anything about lunch, love. Let’s just call it a field trip,” he said with a wink, crooking his index finger in a come hither motion.
“Field trip? What are you up to, Mr. Cane?” Mia smiled and raised her eyebrows.
“It’s a surprise and I know how much you love surprises.” He held his hand out.
“Okay, as long as you promise to feed me at lunch time.” Mia stood and walked to her closet. She pulled her jacket from the hanger, slipped it on and kissed him lightly on the lips as she walked by him out of her office.
The black SRE limousine was waiting curbside for them. Asher held the door open for Mia and slid in beside her. The dividing privacy screen powered down and the driver’s piercing blue eyes peered at them in the rear view mirror.
“Hi Miss Mia. Good to see you. To JFK, Asher?”
Asher nodded and smiled at Mia. “To JFK.”
Mia swung her head to the side toward Asher. “The airport? Where are we going? I don’t have any clothes, I left my computer on in the office. Asher, I’m not prepared to go anywhere,” she sputtered.
He put his finger to her lips. “You think too much. Just sit back and let me take care of everything.”
She stopped fidgeting and studied his eyes. A feeling of calm flowed through her veins. She’d learned to trust him completely, especially over the past few months. She was safe and secure with Asher, that fact was never questioned. She leaned her head back into the soft leather upholstery and turned her head to look at his profile.
“Would you at least tell me where we’re going?” she asked.
He turn toward her, his eyes dark and mysterious. “I was half considering blindfolding you but that may upset the other passengers and possibly get me kicked off the flight or even in jail so I’ll hold on to the blindfold for later.” He winked. “You’ll find out soon enough. It’s still a surprise that I’m going to keep for a while longer.” He turned his head to face forward but kept the sexy smirk plastered on his face.
Asher held their boarding passes out of Mia’s vision while he checked them in curbside, passing the attendant a fifty dollar bill to keep their destination a secret. He handed the TSA agent her ID and boarding pass and whispered “No peeking” as she was checked in.
Intertwining his fingers with hers, they strolled up the corridor lined with terminal gates. He teased her as he pretended to guide her into a few on their way to their real destination.
“Oh, Barcelona!” She pointed to ahead. “I’d love to go there.” Mia pretended to pout as they walked by the passengers lining up to board the flight to Spain. She looked ahead. “Cleveland. No, I’ll pass.”
Asher chuckled. “I will tell you we’re not going to Barcelona or Cleveland. Keep walking.” They continued past a few more gates before he stopped and wrapped his hand around her waist. “Here we are.”
Mia squinted at the sign next to the airline’s gate. “We’re going to Vegas? But I thought the club won’t be ready until next month?”
“It’s not. I need to check on a couple of things and I have a surprise for you that I’ve been working on for quite a while.”
Mia wrapped her arms around Asher’s neck. “You’re too good to me, Sir.”
“I like the way that sounds, love.” He brushed his lips over hers.
Still in the process of testing their D/s relationship, Mia never used “Sir” in the bedroom. Her submission training was both the most satisfying and frustrating experiences of her life. Asher continued to push her to her limits. Since taking over the Vice President of Client Experience position at SRE, she’d had many first time clients in her office wanting kinky experiences as tame as a blindfold and as extreme as a harsh whipping on a St. Andrews cross. A shiver ran threw her body as she wondered what Asher had planned for her.
Asher traced the pads of his fingers across the back of her neck making her shiver again in a good way. “What’s the matter, love?”
She turned to face him. “What’s waiting for me in Vegas?”
“Don’t you trust me to know what you can handle?”
He held her chin between his thumb and index finger. “It’s all about trust, love.” His lips were a whisper from hers.
Mia’s fingertips trailed up his back to the collar of his jacket. “I do trust you, with my heart and body. I’m ready for whatever you have planned for me.”
