“Why don’t you smile?”
Chase shrugged. “I don’t know. Just how I was born. So where’s the dragon tattoo?”
Now she was the one smiling. Smart-mouthed bastard. Yeah, that was kind of sexy. “Hey, I was fucked up before it was cool. This is my fourth hair color this year. I was bright yellow two months ago, but someone called me Big Bird.”
His hand came up, barely touching her hair. “I like Cotton Candy better.”
“Yeah, don’t expect sweet.”
There it was, that hint of a smile that made her want more. “I think you could be very sweet if someone handled you the right way.”
“What if I don’t want to be handled?” The question came out on a flirty huff. God, was that really her voice? Was she flirting with this Dom like she could take him on?
The smile deepened, bringing out ridiculously sexy dimples. “Oh, you want to be handled, sweets.”
She kind of did. But she was still afraid. “I don’t think I could stand to be tied down.”
“How about a male hand on your body? Could you handle that? No ropes. No cuffs. But I would have to put hands on you, and not in that ‘I’m your dad’ way the other guy did.”
Honesty. Lots of honesty. “I don’t know how I would handle it. I know I didn’t like the thought of you servicing me. When you walked up, it felt like I was hiring you or something. I didn’t like that.”
He softly brought the pad of his index finger to brush her nose. “Picky sub.”
“I know what it feels like to be used. I don’t want to use you.”
A single muscular shoulder shrugged. “We all use people. It comes down to how we use them and whether or not they’re okay with being used. How are you going to get what you need if you don’t use someone?”
“It feels wrong.”
“Are you being honest with me about what you want? Is this a plot to trick me into marrying you?”
She rolled her eyes. “No.”
“Then we’re good, sub,” he promised. “You want to play a little in a safe environment with someone who’ll give you some space. I’m cool with that.”
“What do you get out of it?” She needed to know that there was an exchange.
“Ah, you’re a clean-slate girl. Well, sweetness, what I get out of it is the sight of what I think is going to be a spectacular ass. And when I turn in later, I’ll have something to masturbate to.”
She felt her eyes flare. Well, there was honesty for her. “I think you could find someone to help you out.”
He grimaced. “It would be harder than you think. Not a lot of women appreciate my sparkling personality. And besides, I think I’m going to be faithful for the night. I doubt you’ll let me have you, so I’ll pretend.”
The idea of him lying in bed, his hand on his cock while he thought about her, made her breath catch. And still she had to push. “Why me?”
He was silent for a moment, as though deciding how honest he should be. “Because you’re vibrant and different and you’ve muted your glow, but I think you could light up this room if you let go. I would be using you a little, too. I don’t do many good things. I’m basically selfish. Maybe I want to feel good about myself for once.”
She wasn’t giving him credit. She was judging him the way she expected to be judged, on the outside without a single thought to what was happening in his head. She’d looked at his gorgeous body and expected him to not have a soul, much less one as screwed over as hers.
“We could try. You could try to touch me.” She could handle that surely.
“Why don’t you touch me instead?”
