"I'm sorry that I watched you walk way. I wanted to call you, to come to you after you and tell you what a mistake I'd made." "Why didn't you?" "I didn't think you would want to hear from me." He bent down and placed his lips on mine, kissing me hard. "How could you think that? Walking away from you was the hardest thing I've ever done. My God, Tatum, I was in love with you." Tears escaped my eyes as he kissed me again, his hands running down the length of my body. They settled on my ass, and he pulled me into his body. I wrapped my leg over his hip, so he could pull me closer to him. It didn't take long for me to feel his arousal against me; he was so hard and seemed much bigger than earlier. As his hands ran back up my body, they grazed the side of my breast, causing a soft moan to escape from my throat. "Make love to me, please," I moaned as he continued to kiss along my collarbone. He stilled. "I'm not sure that’s a good idea, Tatum." He looked from my eyes to my mouth and back again. I lifted my head from my pillow and kissed him. "Please, show me what it’s like to be loved."
