“When will I see you again?” Jake said in a rush before he could think of a more eloquent way to say it. Inwardly, he cringed. Some of his friends knew all the perfect words to say to make every woman positively melt in their hands. Jake himself had never considered himself very smooth and preferred to keep to himself to his studies and charitable works. With Alessandra, he found himself wishing more and more that he had a little more experience. Still, he suspected that even had he known the correct words to say, Alessandra wasn’t the melting type.
The tiny smile on her face vanished. Alessandra’s lip rolled out to a small pout as if she observed a small puppy do something both incredibly stupid and adorable. Jake bit his lip to keep from groaning at her reaction and waited for her verdict.
“Oh, cupcake, darling,” she said. “This show has no repeat performances.”
“I wonder,” Jake said and tapped his thumb against the edge of his plate, “if there’s anything I can say or do to make you reconsider.”
Though Alessandra already sat with perfect posture, she appeared to sit up even straighter at the comment. Jake had no idea what it meant, but he hoped it was a good sign. Alessandra’s eyes gave no betrayal to what she could possibly be thinking.
“Anything?” she said in a soft tone he couldn’t identify.
Alessandra always kept herself so unreadable. If she hadn’t made such a successful multinational industrial leader, Jake was sure she could make a killing as a poker player. Although he supposed, controlling a global conglomerate probably wasn’t too unlike a game of poker. She most likely had to learn to keep her moves close to herself rather than broadcast her next play to all of her competitors.
“Yes,” he said and chose his next words carefully. “I would do anything.”
“Words are free, cupcake,” she said. “Actions are not. Remember?”
“Then tell me what to do and I’ll do it.”
“I’ll be honest. I don’t make any bargains from which I don’t gain more than I previously had.”
Jake swallowed and his heart thumped in his chest. “What could be more than I’ve already given you?”
Alessandra moved her files on top of her laptop with a slap. Jake jumped at the sudden movement. She leaned forward and caressed the back of her curled fingers against his cheek. In someone else, the gesture would have seemed delicate. In her, it seemed, carnivorous like a predator soothing its prey.
“That’s for you to discover, cupcake,” she whispered. “I need to know that you’re mine and mine alone to play with as I please. When you can obey my every command, from near or far, in body and in mind, then I shall know that you have submitted to me entirely.”
