Athena strode down the sidewalk, her dress flats clicking on the pavement. She glanced up to the sky to watch the pure white light pierce through the white fluffy clouds. She was surprised she got out of the Pentagon before the sun set. She expected to be there well after dark.
But at the first break in the paperwork she grabbed her purse and headed out with the rest of the office. Some strange pull deep in her core begged her to go home. It was an urge she just couldn’t fight.
She pulled her cell from her bag and tapped on the news app. The war was proceeding as planned. She’d kick up her feet and have a glass of wine as soon as she got home. Then she’d figure out how to quench the need she had for Mack out of her system before it drove her insane.
She crossed the street with those around her then picked up her pace. It was not a couple more blocks. Her breaths escaped in ragged gasps. It wasn’t from exhaustion. Whatever lust held her in its grasp was growing not dying. She wasn’t going to make it home.
She stopped short of her door with as gasp. Mack sat on the stoop watching traffic pass. His head swiveled in her direction like a predator eyeing it’s prey. A voice in her head demanded to know why he was there. He took off without a word.
Instead she sprinted the last few steps until she was in his arms, his mouth hot and wet on hers. She clung to him as his hand palmed her ass to press her tighter to him. Right there on the sidewalk in front of her neighbors and who knows who else.
