“Do you want me to make love to you?”
“Yes,” I said, wiggling my legs against Ian’s. “But we’re not going to.”
“Because you don’t like to be touched?” he asked.
“Because it would ruin us working together.” I snuggled back into his chest, sighing in relief. “Maybe someday, but not now. I have far too much to learn from you.”
He may have replied, but I didn’t hear it. I drifted off to sleep happy and content that I had made a decision, a wise decision, one that my adult self-approved.
That contentment lasted all of three hours, until I woke up lying on top of Ian, my borrowed tank top having ridden up so that my bare stomach was plastered all over his. My legs were caught between his thighs, and worst of all, I could feel the heat of his groin against mine.
It made my intimate parts do wondrously tingly things, sensations I hadn’t felt in a long time. I took a deep breath in preparation for peeling myself off Ian, but his low grown had me freezing. “Are you OK?” I asked in a whisper, not wanting to wake him up if he was dreaming.
“Not in the least bit. Stop wiggling against me in that seductive manner.”
“I’m not wiggling anything.”
His hands clamped down over my hips, making my little “trying to scoot off of him” movements obvious. “You’re trying to drive me insane. Don’t deny you are—for the last twenty minutes, you’ve tormented me every way possible, clearly trying to push me past what’s bearable. Admit it, admit that you are trying to drive me mad with desire.”
“I was asleep.” I peeled myself off his stomach and sat up, pulling my legs out from between his and sitting astride his thighs. “I’m sorry if I was tormenting you in my sleep, but I didn’t intend anything. Hoo boy. Sitting like this did not help things, huh?”
I looked down to where a very obvious bulge in his pants was pressed up against the thin material of my sleeping shorts.
He made a choked noise that didn’t contain any actual words.
“You’re really…wow. Do you mind if I touch?”
“Why not?” he managed to get out, a touch of hysteria about the words. “It seems entirely reasonable given that you’ve been sleeping on me for the last hour, torturing me with your soft belly, and your breasts, and the way you breathed on me. Why not touch me too?”
“I don’t want to ruin our relationship,” I said, wishing I could just peel off his pants and have at it. I wondered if his offer to do just that was meant in earnest, or if he was being sarcastic. In my sleep-muddled state, I couldn’t tell. “It means a lot to me that you’re teaching me. Will you promise that it won’t affect my training?”
