“Oh, bugger!” she muttered from her dressing room.
“I’m stuck.” She giggled. “I’m going to find the sales lady to help.”
“No! I’ll help. Open your door.”
A few seconds passed before I heard the lock click. She opened the door and I walked in and locked it behind me.
“Zipper’s stuck.” She moved her hair so I could see.
I struggled with the zipper for a minute before working it loose. I pulled it down exposing the intricate tattoos down her back. “Wow…”
Pink flamed her cheeks. “Phases of our moon, Oro.”
I trailed my fingers down her back and she shuddered. It took everything in me not to lean in and kiss her. Our eyes met in the mirror. Her blue eyes were wide with curiosity and bright with anticipation. She tilted her head to the side just enough to expose the long line of her neck and that made my heart speed out of control. I closed the small space between us and let my lips touch her skin. Her breath hitched. She was so warm, so soft, and so perfect.
My lips trailed soft kisses up to her ear, she trembled and let out a low moan. I circled her waist with one arm to steady her. My heart felt like it was going to jump out of my body. Every inch of my skin warmed.
Akacia turned so that we were face to face and her hand came up to cup my cheek. I rested my hands on her waist. Her gaze darted from my eyes to my lips. She muttered something about hesitation and then her soft, supple lips were on mine.
It was my turn to be surprised. Nobody had ever been so bold, but I was only startled for a beat before I seized her lips and deepened the kiss.
When Akacia pulled away the tiniest of moans escaped my mouth. A smile played on her lips that I swear tasted like honey. She tangled her hands in my hair at the back of my neck.
There was a knock on the door. “Do you need help?”
Akacia giggled and I answered, “No. Just another minute.”
