Sergei walked into her home. “Perhaps the anticipation of seeing you has me at a disadvantage.”
With slow deliberation he turned to her and pulled her into his arms. He shifted and tilted her just enough that she had to grab his arms for support. For a moment his lips hovered over hers letting her breath in as he exhaled and then returned the favor. “Something very appealing about watching you breathe me in,” he whispered against her lips.
He watched her skin flush and her eyes dilate ever so slightly. The woman was exquisite, God help him if she ever figured it out. He sealed his mouth to hers. Clair stopped bracing herself and sunk her fingers into his hair a startled sound coming from her. Sergei felt his head swim for a moment, he could get drunk just kissing this woman. Resigned he lifted his head and resettled Clair in front of him. They had things afoot. “Your mother?”
Clair blinked up at him, still slightly dazed. “My mother?”
Sergei smiled despite himself. He did understand how she felt, the control freak in him would be damned if he showed it. “Are we going to her?”
Clair nodded. Then started wringing her hands.
Sergei took her arms into his hands. “Clair?”
She shook her head. “I can’t... I don’t know what... how to explain...,” she huffed deeply. “I’ve never... in my life... to this degree...”
Sergei just stared at her enjoying her gapping. “Clair, spit it out.”
“I want to jump your bones.” Clair’s grey eyes popped open and she put her hand to her mouth staring at Sergei in an accusatory way. “Did you, I don’t know why I just…” She stared at him gravely.
“I told you, it was a two-way street. I can’t lie to you either.” Sergei said softly relief in his voice.
“It’s starting to become a permanent state. Before I met you I at least knew when to keep my mouth shut. But if anyone asks me anything about you, if you ask me anything, the truth comes flying out. Whether I want it to or not.”
Clair pulled a face thinking about this. “Karmatically predisposed not to lie to me, that’s not so bad.”
Sergei held up his finger, “Two-way street.”
Clair shrugged. “I don’t lie often enough to really worry about it.”
Sergei grinned at the shock mixed with horror that spread across her face.
“This sucks.” Clair winced hard as she heard her own words.
Sergei nodded. “Not all the fun and games you thought it would be huh?”
“Not at all.” She put up her hands. “Let’s go.”
