Arrangement - Part Two

Joban owned her, and despite the warmth, the pleasant tingle in her belly, and the slow sizzle blossoming from her womb whenever he was near, she wanted freedom.

He blinked and the light disappeared from his hands, back to the netherworld from whence it originated. He stood and walked toward the door.

“Are you leaving?” She sheathed her claws, trying and failing to temper the fear in her voice.

“Would you like me to stay?” Deep, mellow tones poured over her like balm for every hurt she’d cast aside.

Nia rolled her eyes and turned her head away from him. Arrogant bastard.

He hesitated, then stepped through the door. “Nevertheless, I will return shortly.”

Nia heard him chuckle, reacting violently to his taunt and ripping the soft sheets with instinctively unsheathed claws. Damn it!  According to his reputation, angering him was not wise.

Following Joban’s silent footfalls, he unlocked the door from the outside with a snick. Nia jumped, but held her tongue. She would not cow, despite the fluttering of her heart.

He glanced at the sheets, full lips a hard line, gray eyes storm clouds. “Come. Against the wall! My patience is over.”

Nia rose, the pleasant thrill in her lower belly foreign, unwelcome.

That's one conflicted protagonist. There's a gorgeous erotic poetry to your work. Enchanting in the best possible sense. Really liked this - you made me go back and read the original flash.
