I hear
music coming from down the hall as I finish putting my glass in the
dishwasher and pause, listening for a moment before going to investigate. Alex
has his bedroom door shut, which is odd, because I’ve never seen it shut except
for the first night I slept here, and I was on the other side of it.
I open the
door cautiously, though I’m not sure why I’m being cautious, and then
I lean my head into the gap curiously.
I find the
room spotless, candles burning on all available spaces, dim light coming from
the table lamp, and Alex across the room, leaning against the wall next to the
bedside table where the slow RnB tune is coming from.
Alex, in his
complete fireman costume.
“I thought you

kisses me on the sensitive spot he likes there and then nips my ear, sending a
rush of pleasure through my nerves.
“You ever want
something from me, all you have to do is ask, sunshine. One
all-Alex revue coming right up,” he murmurs against the
skin below my ear, knowing it’s ticklish and making me squirm.
