Darien opened his eyes then whispered, "Open your eyes. Try and still your mind. Experience."
He shifted to sitting on his knees, leaned close, keeping his lips a breath away from Erika's. "I love you." Holding his position, he mentally sent the heat from his kiss to her, but did not touch her. He settled back.
Eyes wide with wonder, Erika raised a hand to her mouth. Darien grinned. This just might work after all—a powerful sexual experience caused by suggestion.
He placed his hands just above the crown of her head and in a stroking motion, scooped them over her short hair to under her jaw. He repeated the movement several times, willing the love inside him to flow through the air to her. Erika's breathing shifted from deep slow breaths to shallower ones.
Darien changed the movement to down the front of her throat, over her shoulders and down her arms. On his third try, goosebumps rose on her arms. Inspired by her pleasure, he moved behind her. He placed his hands near the small of her back and moved them up, following her spine. A vision formed in his mind. He moved back, but leaned forward and almost kissed the small of her back, holding the position for a few moments. He lifted up a few inches and repeated the non-kiss.
As he inched closer to the middle of her back, her breathing quickened again. When he neared the nape of her neck, she tilted her head to the left, exposing the side of her neck for his kisses. He trailed the heat up her neck to her earlobe. He pretended to playfully nip it.
"Oh..." She released a soft sigh.
Seated in front of her, he placed his open hands before her breasts, her nipples almost touching his palms. He circled his hands as if caressing the tips of her buds. They grew in firmness. Keeping minimal space between his fingers and her flesh, he trickled his fingers up and dragged his fingertips back down and around her perfect globes. He mimicked cupping them. She closed her eyes. A deep sigh escaped her lips.
He pretended to massage one breast, while making the motion of rubbing her nipple between thumb and finger. Every so often, he would switch what his hands were doing. She sat taller and arched her back. Her nipples stood firm and pink. A fine line of perspiration formed on the side of her neck and dribbled down her chest. He lowered his mouth close to her right nipple, closed his eyes and envisioned himself wrapping his lips around the perky bud and teasing it with his tongue.
"Darien. This is incredible. You're making me so hot." She reached to pull him closer. He slipped out of her grasp.
He wanted to touch her. To kiss those perfect lips. Taste her sweetness. His groin burned. His cock was fully erect. The movements to create heat in Erika had driven his temperature straight up. But this wasn't for him. He willed himself not to touch her. Not to break the spell. But he ached. It had been a while since they made love, and his body and his soul missed her touch, her taste and her cries of delight.
He stared at the space between her breasts, wanting to kiss straight down to her belly button. Changing to a trickling and dragging motion up and down the length of her torso, he flowed the movement in and out over her crossed legs.
Darien placed his thumbs near the top of her inner thighs and pretend-stroked down the inside of her leg. It amazed him when he saw the shudder that rippled through her. He repeated his motion. She uncrossed her legs and spread them apart. He knelt in between and made a cupping motion over her pussy. He rocked his hand back and forth. She squirmed in place. A moan rumbled in her throat. He lifted his middle finger and made the motion of sliding up into the heat of her sex.
A shudder rippled down his back at the thought. The pressure building in him was nearing its max. Darien flexed the finger up and back, knowing what it felt like and wishing he could experience it.
You loved What Happens in Bangkok and want to know what happens next….
