I watched as Magnolia slipped out of the office and then one minute later Jane got up and started to follow behind her. Obviously these two ladies had something to say that they didn’t want anyone hearing. My curiosity got the better of me and I decided to call Jane into the office to see if she would say anything to me that was out of the ordinary.
“Jane, can you come to the office for a second, please?” I called out as she made her way to the main door.
“Yes, Sir.” She said in her sweet voice as she popped her head into my office. “Is there anything I can do for you?” Her brown eyes looked into mine innocently and I wondered how wide they would go if I said, yes, come over here, drop to your knees and unzip me. I stifled a smile at the thought. I would bet a million dollars that not only would she not drop to her knees, but she’d most probably slap me as well. She had a fiery temper and I wasn’t sure of it was because she was Latina or because I just rubbed her the wrong way. I didn’t really care why, I thought it was sexy as hell and often found myself saying things to her, just to get a reaction.
“Jane, do you have the presentation ready for me and Jagger tomorrow?” I asked her seriously. “We’re putting a lot of money into this marketing campaign. I see you’ve got us down for a TV Ad, a national radio ad, newspaper ads and postcard flyers.” I looked down at the report she’d handed me yesterday. “A million dollars in ad spend is a lot of money. I really want to see the graphics you’ve come up with.”
“We’re not spending a million dollars off the bat, Tate.” She walked into the office, her brows furrowed. “If you looked at the plan, we’re just starting with a local TV ad and some postcard mailings. It will set us back about fifty grand.” She stopped in front of my desk. “I do have everything pretty much ready if you’d like to see what I’ve come up with before tomorrow.”
“What I’d like is to see you naked.” I said under my breath.
“Sorry, I didn’t hear you.” She said and I noticed that she had misbuttoned her top. My fingers ached to reach up and unbutton her shirt and redo it for her; not because I cared that they were in the right holes but because I wanted to see her bra. Fuck, but she was sexy. She was wearing a deep red lipstick today and her pouty lips looked good enough to suck.
“I said tomorrow is fine. As long as you have everything ready. Jagger and I have invested a lot in this company and we’ve put a lot of trust in you and your ideas.”
“Yes, thank you Sir.”
“You’re only a recent college grad and so this is really a big opportunity, you really don’t want to let us down.”
“Of course not sir. I think I’d rather die than let you down.” She sounded so sincere, but I could tell from the look on her pretty little face that she was being sarcastic. I wondered how sarcastic she would be if I slipped my finger up her skirt.
“No need to be so dramatic, Jane.” I said, pretending I believed her. “If you let me down, you don’t have to die, you can just ride me.”
“Sorry what did you say?” Her eyes narrowed. “Your voice drifted off after you said you don’t have to die?”
“Do you have a hearing issue, Jane?” I stood up suddenly and walked around the table so that I was standing next to her.
“No.” She shook her head, her brown eyes staring up at me warily and I wondered if she was hoping for me to touch her just as badly as I was wanting to touch her. I’d love to bend her forward over the desk and pull her skirt up. “What are you doing Tate?”
“Just a second ago I was Sir, now I’m Tate.”
“Sorry Mr. Howard, is that better?” Her wide brown eyes looked at me innocently and she smiled sweetly. I had a feeling that she knew that she was getting under my skin.
“What do you think?” I crossed my arms and stared at her. She was wearing a short black skirt and pretty blue blouse today. I looked down to her legs and looked at her long lithe calves. She had a fit little body, she wasn’t exactly muscular, but she was round in all the right places. I was already looking forward to her leaving the office. Her ass was round and juicy and just aching to be squeezed.
“I don’t know what you prefer.” She shrugged.
“Do you care what I prefer?” I arched an eyebrow at her and her lips thinned. “Some men say they prefer doggy style, but I have to admit a prefer a woman on top, call me old fashioned.”
“Excuse me?” Her cheeks flushed pink and I grinned.
“Oh sorry, I thought you were asking me what sexual positions I prefer.”
“Why would you think that?” Her eyes narrowed as she stared at me.
“Usually that’s the question women are asking me when they ask what I prefer.”
“Uh huh.” She couldn’t stop herself from rolling her eyes and I almost laughed.
“Just call me, Tate. I’ve told you that before.”
“Yes, Sir…I mean, Tate.”
“You can call me Big Daddy if you want.” I licked my lips. “I quite like that moniker.”
“I’m not calling you big anything, let alone daddy.” She shook her head vehemently. “You’re so inappropriate.”
“Relax, Jane. It was only a joke.”
“It won’t be a joke if I sue you for sexual harassment.” She poked her finger in my chest and I could see that she was breathing heavily. “That is entirely inappropriate.”
“You don’t have to call me that in the office….” I winked at her and she glared at me. “Maybe only at the club, when you work your shifts.”
“Ooh, you, you…” She stammered and then gave me the dirtiest look she could muster. “You’re so rude, Tate Howard, I should quit.” She marched to the office door and looked back at me. “I’m going to take an early lunch with Magnolia instead.”
“You just got here.” I protested.
“So?” She smiled sweetly again. “Adios.”
“Adios mamacita.” I gave her a little wave and then under my breath I said. “Te veré más tarde sexy, solo espero que la próxima vez será en mi cama.”
She paused at the door, her jaw open and she glared at me. “What the hell did you just say?”
“Adios?” I stared at her blankly as if I hadn’t just told her that I would see her later and hopefully it would be in my bed.
“What did you say after that?” Her eyes narrowed. “En mi cama?”
“Sorry, I don’t know much Spanish, what does that mean?”
“In my bed.”
“You want me in your bed?” I looked shocked. “That’s a bit forward, Miss. Garcia. Even for you.”
“What?” She blinked and looked confused for a second. “I didn’t say that I want you in my bed, you said you want me in your bed.”
“I did?” I tilted my head to the side and smiled. “To be fair, it doesn’t need to be in bed, on the desk, on the beach, or even in the grocery store would work well for me.”
“In the grocery store? You’re a pig.” She shook her head. “Really Tate?”
“Yes, I don’t mind where you find yourself doing your work as long as you’re doing it.”
“What are you talking about?”
“What are you talking about?” I raised an eyebrow and tried to stop myself from laughing.
“You know what, whatever.” She huffed and turned around again. “Asshole.” She said under her breath and I laughed.
“I heard that.” “Good.” She said and kept walking. As she walked away I felt myself growing hard. Shit, this woman was going to drive me crazy.
