When I catch him sneaking glances at me, I immediately hide behind my newspaper and pretend I wasn’t looking. Too late, though, because I hear him muffle a laugh.
“I saw you,” he muses.
I shrug as I put down the paper. “You saw nothing.” I wink at him, but I can’t stop myself from laughing a little either.
“Sassy girl …” he says. “Peeking at me while I’m trying to feed our girl.”
“Yeah, well, I can’t help it. You just make it look too darn cute.”
“Ha-ha! Mommy called Daddy cute!” Lily squeals.
“Cute? Cute?” He frowns, sticking another spoonful of veggies into her mouth before directing his attention toward me. “I’ll show you how fucking cute I can get when I ram my meat stick into your mouth in a few minutes.”
My jaw drops. “Angel!”
“What?” He shrugs. “It’s not like she’s old enough to understand.”
“Mommy?” Lily claps her hands together. “What’s fucking? And what’s a meat stick? Can you eat it?”
I smile at her and say, “It something for grown-ups, sweetie. And your daddy’s making jokes again.”
“Joking? Nope. I’m just pointing out the truth here. I am not cute …” He points at me with the spoon. “And don’t you say you don’t love this meat stick.”
“Fine, you’re not cute. You’re an idiot. We good?”
“Daddy, can I go play now?” Lily pleads, putting up her best pout.
He smiles and sighs. “Okay … you win.” He puts down the fork and lets Lily slide off her chair.
She immediately runs up the stairs while yelling, “I’m gonna play with my Barbies all night long!”
Angel grins at me. “Drink up your coffee,” he says with a low voice, his eyes dark and lusty.
“Why?” I say with a smirk as I get up and walk to the kitchen with my empty plate to set it in the dishwasher.
Angel approaches me from behind, smothering me with kisses on my cheek and neck, making me giggle.
“That’s why …” he murmurs, nuzzling me.
I place my hand on his and let out a breath as he squeezes my shoulder. It feels so good with him and our little girl here in this home. Like we’re finally where we belong. There’s only one thing that’s bothering me.
“Do you think your father will ever find us here?” I ask.
Angel cocks his head so he can look at me. “No … why do you ask all of the sudden?”
I shrug. “Oh, just because … I guess I’m just worried, that’s all.”
“Don’t be.” He pecks me on my temple. “It’s going to be okay.”
“How do you know? What if …”
“Shh …” he shushes. “I understand, Sky. I’ll go there.”
“What?” I gasp.
“If it makes you feel safer, I will go there myself and finish the job.”
I turn around in his arms. “But he’s your father. Are you sure?”
“I don’t care. He means nothing to me anymore.” He points at the ceiling. “That little girl up there … she means everything to me now.” And then he taps my chest with his index finger. “And this girl here. She means the most.”
I suppress a smile by biting my lip, but I can’t stop my cheeks from heating.
He gazes down at me from under his lashes. “I’ll do it for our family. For her. For you.”
He grabs my face and kisses me fiercely, protectively, as if he needs to prove something to me.
“Why’d you have to go and bite your lip?” he murmurs. “You know I’m a sucker for that.”
I grin against his lips as he kisses me again and again.
His hands snake down my sides, and he lifts me up the kitchen counter. His mouth is everywhere—on my neck, my shoulder, my lips. He ravages me with no restraint, electricity running through my veins from his every touch.
“We can’t …” I mutter. “She’s upstairs.”
“So?” he murmurs.
“Not if we don’t make a sound.” He grins against my skin.
“Maybe she’ll come downstairs,” I say.
“Then we’ll have to make it quick.”
There, on the counter, he rips down my pants and underwear and unbuckles his belt, throwing it all aside. Then he rips down his zipper and unbuttons his jeans, pulling them down to reveal a hard-on so big it makes me swallow with greed. One hot kiss on the mouth and he thrusts in without holding back.
Exactly how I like it.
